 SUBSCRIPTION $1 A YEAR'  IN ADVANCE  Published in the Interests of Greater Vancouver.  VOLUME III  H. H. STEVENS; EDITOR.  VANCOUVER, British Columbia, AUGUST 4,   1911.  No. 13  FEDERAL ELECTIONS  As intimated in our last issue, a Federal  lection will be held next"month.-' The issue is  dear and there will be no necessity of..dragging  )ersonalities into this, campaign. It is now the  luty of the-.various parties to choose men above  reproach to bear the standard of the party. It  s the duty of every elector to interest himself  n the choice. The primaries and conventions  should, be attended by every voter, as upon the  choice of these meetings will depend the type Of  inan Avho will represent us in the next parliament.-'  We sincerely hope that each man in the field will,  as a.citizen, be worthy of support;'thus it will be  possible to concentrate attention on the great  Hiestion at issue, viz., Reciprocity.  Much may, and undoubtedly will be, said on  oth  sides oi; this great;-question;'and however  iure one.may,,be of his own opinion, no man can J  afford to treat the issue lightly.   It is a subject  kvliieh. merits'careful study.    Upon our decision  ^vill largely depend the '"future destiny of Canada,  "t is quite  possible  that that destiny in  either  ^ase may be bright.'.hut this solemn fact remains.  ,hat;the passave of this bill now will result in the  reatioh Of a  new commercial and political  en-  ironment for Canada which  will vitally affeet  er future.  "We  arec  ailed  upon  to  decide  between  the  onsummatioiv of the work Of a generation, A-iz.,  inperial  Preference, and a  new comeroial rela-  iioh Avith a friendly but keen/neighbor..., We must  ihodse a policy of developing our own great natural resources, or else give free access to those  [esources for the benefit'of industries south of  ie line.   "We can accept speedy but low returns  T our raw materials, or we may add labor and  [kill to nature's wcath and gain greatly enhanced  ���������ofits.    We may build for the  future a  great  (ation within the Empire, or we may selfishly in  is generation gain wealth by 'selling our birth-  'ght.    These and many other problems are here us, and it will depend upon the evidence  t>rtheoming and the cupidity of the voter as to  i'hat the answer will be.  We are convineedt hat with a proper presen-  Ittion of the ease the Canadian voter will decide  favor of that policy which tends toward the  ^menting of the ties of Empire aud to the de-  .l-ping of oiuYowri natural resources. There is,  [dwever, a great danger that men may fail to  lalize the significance ofYthe occasion and unfittingly barter aAvay their heri^  It is -;j our intention from week to week to  Iscuss tlie question in its varied aspects, aud we  [ill endeavor to;be fair,and unbiased in present-"  the facts.      7  CANDIDATES.  It is not as yet defiinitely known who the can-  [date's will be.

Cowan is the retiring member and  Conservative standard bearer, but no definite  formation is to hand (at the time of writing)  to wiiether he will again be the candidate of  jt victorious party or not.  AN EXCELLENT INVESTMENT.  JAmong the many good provisions of the Canaan  Government  Annuities Act  is  that  under  Rich a husband and wife, two sisters, or, in fact.  ly two persons may .join in the purchase ot! what  Iknown as a Last Survivor Annuity; that is. an  Inuity which Avill be paid to both so long as  th live, and to. the survivor so long as he or she  tas.For, example, a mau who is now 7.1 recently  Vehased. a Last Survivor Annuity for "himself  lil--sister, two years older, at a cost of #4,076.  lis secures them an income of $500 a year, the  It'quarterly payment falling due three months  [m the date, on which the purchase money---was  Rl.    Prior to the investment in a Government  Ihuity the money had been draAving fi% interest,  ]yielding an income of only $280, so that the  Ireased income will make a vast difference in  comfort  and  happiness  of  the  Annuitants.  ile at the same time it Avill relieve ,them of all  Liety as to the state of the money market and  safety.of the investment.  _ny information desired on the subject of  [nuities may be obtained by applying to your  ?tmaster, or addressing the Superintendent of  ^eminent Annuities, Ottawa, to Avhom letters  P free of postageY  tDOM. GOVERNMENT ANNUITIES DEPT.  THAI  SOUTH VANCOUVER WATER  Charges Almost All Proven ��������� Number of Men Resign���������Chief Severely Censured  ���������Whitewash of Department Repudiated.  At last, in spite of absurd adverse rulings by  the Mayor and pettifogging points of order  raised by those who Avished to whitewash the  department, the minority report of Aid. Mc-  Master aud Williamson, re the investigation into  the affairs of the Fire Department, has been  adopted by the City Council.  According to the report, nine out of the tAvelvd  charges Avhich Aid. Stevens made have been  proven. These include the most sei'ious charges,  viz., that unAvarranted favoritism had been  shoAvn to Seagreave's company, that the city had  paid too much for its apparatus, that said apparatus (the aerial truck) had been far, from satisfactory, that officials of the city had been having  junketing trips Avhile under civic pay, that the  Chief had unlaAvfidly taken city property to his  private residence^ that the civic auto had been  used for joy-riding, and that the conduct in  some -hall and of some officials had been disgraceful.  Of the charges not proven one refers to the  capacity of the fire engines. These have never  been tested as to capacity but only as to running  qualities. Another referred to the system of promotion being unfair and ou this point Chairman  Enright refused to alloAv the evidence to be given  and was supported by the committee. Thus it  will be seen that the result of the investigation  has actually been to prove that serious irregularities existed which needed attention. The  council dealt with thees by seriously censuring  the Chief aud ordering the controller and storekeeper to secure the return of the city property.  By censuring the Deputy Chief of neglect of duty  in enforcing discipline and for conduct unbecoming an officer, of the force and by ordering the  Chief to seriously reprimand three firemen.  Several of the men involved in the investigation and who were ordered discharged, resigned  as soon as they saAV the Avay matters stood, among  them being Captain Jordan and Lieutenant:  Stephens of No. 5 Hall. Auto Expert King. A.  Creib, the; Chief's driver, and V. Pottery Their  resignations were accepted,  The report did not, however, pass the council  /without opposition from the Mayor and his co-  defendants of the department, Aid. Ramsay. Eu-  right and MacPherson. These gentlemen dragged  up every conceivable rule of order .which could  possibly"'be. twisted--into an application-to the  question, and the Mayor Avith fervid alacrity applied the same irrespective pf their relevancy to  the subject of debate. Nothing Avas too absurd  or petty to serve tlieir ends, but in spite of it-all  the report carried, seven for and four against.  During the evening's entertainment the Mayor  draAvled" out his   familiar   phrase,   '' Aid.  M ae-  Pherson,  will  youtake  the  chair,"  and   amid  liotileabl^  descended to the floor to hand out his usual  criticism of Aid. SteA^ens. This action on the part  bf Ills Worship is intended to convey a feeling  of a Aye to the rank and file of the council, but,  as a matter of fact, has become a huge joke. The  ludicrousness of the situation on this occasion  Avas emphasized by the fact that Avium the Mayor  had successfully descended from his "dais" to  the floor of the council chamber his little speech  ���������had-left him and he stood helplessly facing the  amuseVl eroAvd. After a few moments' silence he  regained his speech and commenced a broken and  bitter attack upon those Avho had dared to differ  from him.   "I do not think' Ave have the right to  take from the Chief tlie' enforcement   of   these  rules and regulations," said the irate Mayor.   Evidently in his opinion a chief clever enough to  appropriate a boiler Avas cleA'er enough to command a brigade, and a man A\iio Avould alloAv to  pass unreproved such orgies as have obtained in  No. 2-Hall and which Avere l-eported to him was  specially fitted to administer the discipline in his  oavu sweet .way to .those'who had indulged iu  similar orgies in No. 5.    The Mayor continued:  "You have the audacity to include the name of  the Deputy Chief, who never had a chance to  defend   himself."     EA'idently    the   Worshipful  Mayor forgot that the same Deputy Chief sat at  the investigation and heard the evidence given  regarding his joy-ride to New Westminster with  Sam Gothard and another gentleman (?) betAveen  the hours of midnight and six a. m., also the little  trip around the cafes of the city and   on   to   a  questionable resort, from Avhich the driver of the  car said he got home at four in the morning, and  again, there is also the evidence given that he  (tlie deputy) kneAv all about the rcA'els at No. ">  Hall and that the captain of the hall had been  guilty of disgraceful conduct.   All this and more  the Deputy Chief heard and had full opportunity  to ansAver or refute, but he dare not, and this is  the man of which the Mayor is so solicitous and  about whom the seven aldermen had had    the  "audacity to drag iu his name."   Then the Mayor  made this startling charge, "Stevens was simply  on a fishing expedition and did not get much."  It is Avonderful' Iioav alarmed His .Worship gets  over these trifles,   ne has " taken the floor" and  poured forth the Avisdom of that funny little head  'of-his on at least a dozen occasions in regard to  this   little   "fishing   expedition."      The    Mayor  keeps constantly  before the public' the  cost in  money of this im-estigation, but hoAV can we possibly compute the enormous loss in brain energy  on the  part of our Chief Magistrate,    to    say  nothing about  the  uneasiness and  grief of  the-  poor Chief and Deputy.  We cannot leave this subejet -without some  slight reference to the amusing efforts of: our  friend, Aid. Ramsayy to keep a course which  AvOtild be consistent -with the wish of his chief,  the Mayor, and at,the same time perform AA-bat he  felt his duty. The majority report, had it carried,  'would have accomplished this. In one place he  could quote to an outraged public his demand  that "discipline be enforced," then to soothe the  ruffled feelings of the Mayor and Fire Chief he  could read the clause that "we must not forget  the long and faithful services of the Chief, etc.,  etc." This nicely-balanced, meaningless l-eport  would luwe proAred a rare harbor of refuge after  the stormy investigation, but alas,/the inconsideratecouncil majority made this impossible,land  The residents of South Vancouver are suffering a-ery serious inconvenience because of lack  of water during the hot, dry weather. Many just  complaints are being made on the grounds that  having paid for the service they are entitled to  tbe water.".'.No one can question the'justice of  this "Claim,- but it Avould be well for all concerned  to take a dispassionate yieAV of the situation and  seek to .prevent- its recurrence rather than to  abuse those who may appear to be responsible.  In the first place, let it be remembered that  the city authorities are not arbitrarily cutting  doAvu the supply of South Vancouver. In many  parts of the city the service is as AA-eak as in  South Vancouver, for which may be assigned  several causes, some of whicii it would be.impossible to foresee.  One of the 'causes of Ioav pressure is the tendency of those living on the loAver levels to allow  their taps to run for cooling or other purposes.  .Another is the general increase of consumption in  hot Aveather. Another, the lawn and garden  sprinkling. But perhaps the chief cause is tlie unprecedented 'roAvth of the Avhole district of Greater Vancouver. This has excelled the most sanguine expectations and has made it impossible for  the authorities of both districts to make provision  for an adequate service.  Regarding the suggestion   that   the   wooden  pipes  of  South  Vancouver  are leaking,  Reeve  Pound asserts that this is not so, but that now all"  joints are tight.   We are glad to hear this, as it  Avas the cause of- great anxiety and loss to the  Municipality.   It is clear, however,'that in spite  of this, South Vancouver is using a great deal  of Avater.   Another point we would draw attention to is that in the agreement between the city  and South' Vancouver,.'it was provided that the  city would only supply to South Vancouver after  its OAvn needs were satisfied.   This clause, however, is not being taken advantage of by the city,  for as we have already stated, many districts in  the city are suffering equally with South Vancouver.       '.      ".".-',  Noav a Avord as to Avhat is being done to remedy  til this trouble. First���������Provision has been made  to lay a 12-inch pipe from Seymour service to the  heart of D. Ll 301, whieh will practically relieve  the situation. This pipe will be about 17,000 feet  long, and already 8.000 feet has been laid. Secondly���������The City are now laying au additional  main across/the first narroAvs, which will be in  place in about'".'one'-'month's time. Thirdly���������Provision has been made for laying two eightcen-inch  mains across the second narroAvs during the coming fall. In addition to this the City js arranging  to lay a largethrithy-six-inch main j.roni Seymour  Intake, the right-of-way being now prepared. Also  a hew large trunk main from Capilano Intake.  All this is being rushed to completion but as it  is a work of stupendous magnitude it will of-necessity take some time to complete.  As far as Ave are able to learn there should not  be a recurrence of the present shortage in another  season.  the poor alderman Avas forced to alloAv a report  which called a "spade a spade" to pass. -,IIe Avas,  hoAvever, equal to the occasion and amid the  amused laughter of the audience declared that  "the report Avas not severe enough," although regarding the sanie report he had at a previous  meeting pleaded that "justice be;tempered Avith  OUR PARKS.  mercy."  Thus has ended an investigation Avhieh has  clearly shown the need..for.reform-in..the.department under question. It is iioav up to those in  charge of the department, to institute such 'reforms-as are needed and prcA'cnt in future a. recurrence of such conditions.  ^������A*A^iK*���������^^^>'^^^���������!������������������'i'���������!',M,,>,l,,lM^,������������������ '^'t������*i"i5'*'ci,{2,<i,^'<^s,iv^,'i,t^'^*-^,'t,*J>'iHJ,,j*tJ,'5'*  **<t,<i><j'������s>-j������'SKJ''!"3,<3,,j,<!,,sKJ''HMj'^"^!������<st<;''*><j'*  ������"������/\'k ' -   i  T ���������������������������'��������������������������� ��������� ���������       .,- *  __ *  ���������j  *  o    ���������"���������-.��������� ��������� *  ���������  '    *  *  *  A  A  ���������4g������   ���������  *  t  *  *  *  *  *  A  "*  :*  ���������*���������  *  A  *-  ���������  *  *  4������-  ������*���������  4S������"  *  *  *  ���������>  *'  *  '*���������  *  t������������  Question And Answer  Why do you read the "Call?"      ���������  Because you are interested, in a clean city.

He  expects a total shipment for the season of 25,000,000 feet, and frankly admits manufacturers in this part of the  United States take issue with the National Association, which is fighting  the reciprocal trade arrangement.  They feel that with reciprocity they  will then be able to ship all kinds of  lumber into. Canada, instead of only  the rough grades which come in free  of duty now. Their expectation is  that Canada will be a good market for  several years, even under present con-  ditions, and much better if reciprocity  comes.y  New stock of Cameras, Papers and  Chemicals at the  DRUG STORE  (LePatourel & McRae)  Cor. 7th Ave. & Main St. Phone: fairmont 565  INDUSTRIAL  ACCIDENTS  MAY.

An immense tank  made of canvas is rigged up, and here  the initiation of ali the "candidates  tokens place. Devices for getting the  candidate into the tank vary on different Qs!iips- and on different occasions, Often he is simply picked up  and thrown in. ..Frequently he Is  made to sit down in a "barber's"  ehalr close to tho edge of the tank,  and when as much soap as possible  has been put into bis mouth nnd eyes  he Is tipp(������d over backward. Generally  the soap has been mixed with tar,  coal oil and many other ingredients  and is Impartially applied from the  'waist up. so that the bath is heeded.,  Iu the tank the candidate is attended, sometimes by "bears" with shaggy  coats made of unraveled rope and  sometimes by. "cops" who act as the  king's assistants and see that the.candidate is held under water long enough  to know It. 7   ": 7;  It is a great frolic, prepared for days  ln advance, and when it is over the  certificate is issued and the candidates  are free to get themselves as clean a>  they  can  before the next roll call.  THE WEST'S  NE  WOUTLET.  IF   SNOW   NEVER   FELL  The. Effect   Upon   the   World's  Crops  Would Be Disastrous.  If all the. condensed moisture of the  atmosphere were to fall as rain and  none of it was snow hundreds of thou-,  sands of scjuaie miles of the earth's  surface how yielding bountiful crops  would be little^ better than a desert.  The tremendous economic gain for the  world at large which results from the  difference between snow and "rain Is  seldom realized by the inhabitants ipf  fertile and Well watered lowlands. 7 :  It is in the extensive regions where  irrigation is a prime necessity ih'-as--  riculture that the special uses of snovr  come chiefly into view. All through  the winter the snow is falling upon the  mountains and packing itself flrmlyviu  the ravines. Thus iu uature^s great  icehouse a supply of moisture is'stored  up for the following summer.  All through the warm mouths the  hardened snow banks are melting  gradually, (in trickling streams they  steadily feed the rivers which as they  ! flow through the valleys are utilized  for irrigation. If. tin's moisture fell as  raiu it would almost immediately wash  down through;the rivers, which would  hardly be fed at all iii- the summer  when the crops most needed water.  These ..facts arc so well known as to  be commonplace in the Salt Lake valley and iu tlie subarid regions of the  west generally. They are not so well  understood "in New Jersey or Ohio,  where suow is sometimes a picturesque, ;sometimos a disagreeable, feature of winter.

Where  Will  Timber for the  Hudson  Bay  Railway be Obtained?        ,  >vhere is the timber for the construction of the Hudson Bay Railway  to be obtained? And will the country  through which the line passes.be able  to furnish it?  To answer these questions was the  main object of a survey party sent out  -by the Forestry Branch' of the Department of the Interior in the summer of 1910. The,report by the head  ot the party (Mr. J. R. Dickson, B.S.  A., B.S.F., Assistant Inspector of Forest Reserves) has just been published,  and is of great interest to those concerned in the building of the road.  THE ROUTE OF THE PARTY.  /. Starting at The Pas, on the Saskatchewan river, the party traversed the  country around Mitishto lake, the Mi-  tishto river, the Grass river system,  with its many lake expansions (including Wekusko lake), Pakwa (or  Pakwahigan) lake, Setting and Split  lakes, and the Nelson river system,  including Cross and Sipiwesk lakes,  Wintering and Landing lakes. /The  return journey was made by way of  the Minago (or Pine) river. Some  two hundred and thirty five (235)  miles of the line of the proposed route  of the railway was thus covered.  HOW THE PARTY WORKED.  The party was composed of the  chief forester and three field assistants and five others. The work was  of the nature of a reconnaissance, the  method adopted'being to run lines at  intervals  of three  to   six  miles,  the  ���������y .  compass being used to give the direction. The men worked singly, and an  average day's work was four to six  miles and return. Field glasses were  an idea of country that could not be  carried, and were often used to get  an idea of country that could not be  reached on foot.  THE TIMBER.  The    sizable    timber    is    confined  almost entirely to the water-courses.  Spruce is, generally speaking, the only  timber-that--is found large enough for  saw-timber or railway ties.   The pop-'  liar, birch and jack pine are invariably  'too short, spindly, limby and crooked  i.'fnr any use  save  fuel  or  pulpwood.  Very, very few live tamarack trees are  ! to be. had; the rest have been "killed  bq  bark beetles. -'.v -,'-.'���������-  i - The total number of ties available  inyhe  district covered  is  estimated  at about- 360,000, which, at 3,000 .ties  | to  the mile, would be sufficient for  about half the distance covered.    Of  ' saw-timber there are about nine and  half million feet.   For pile timber the  , dead tamarack and the largest, of the  : close:gra.ined  black    spruce could  be  I used.   There is a very large supnly qf.  y^ehvood available, and there will also  be  a   large   supply  of  pulpwood,   but  I much of the timber is as yet too small  'even -for" that. ,       .  j 7 TIMBER DESTRUCTION.  i The destruction of timber (and this,  be it observed, in a district where lum-  i.bermen have never penetrated) is tre-  jmendous. Fire and insects are responsible for this, especially the for-  . mer. Practically every part of the  i (approximately) eight thousand  I square miles covered by the survey  i party has been visited by-two'great  I general-fires, one eighty years ago,  j the other forty. Tn quite a number of  7p)aces  the fire had   evidently  leaped  ******************.&*******  **.w**************4<*******  * Wllloughby's  Cash  Grocery *  %  Corner 11 th Avc. and St. Catherines Street ���������������  V   FRESHIGROCERIES.

The power bf advertising in told by  a manager of tho toilet department of  a large .New York department store.  "We have six different makes of one  toilet article," he said, "and they are  eo near alike in Quality that even experts can't tell the difference between  them, yet we sell as much of ..one us  we do of all the others together, just  3because tho manufacturer is everlast  ingly advertising it. ��������� The other-'five  sell in proportion to tlie amount of advertising given to them, if there ls  any difference in Quality' it is iu favor  ofthe poorest seller." ,'  Cash   Grocers   and  Provision Merchants!  -   - 7     . ._.. ��������� .    .-   .      ���������    j  NOTE THE ADDRESS    I  Cor. 26th ft Main  No Deadheads. ~  Mandy |;was a young colored girl  fresh from the cotton, fields of the  south.

Extension  of Uie  patrol  is suggested, but in a country so large and  practically uninhabited it. would  be a  task of great difficulty to check a fire,  if, it once got started,  be the  ranger  ever se efficient.

DANGERS OF MILK.  LONDON.���������The final report of the  Royal Commission appointed ten years  ago to study the question of the relation between human and bovine tuberculosis has just been issued. They  state that man must clearly be regarded as being liable to risk of infection from at" least two of the three  types of tubercle baccilli, the human  and the bovine. The -chief recommendation of the commission is as  follows: "In the interests of infants  and children, the members of ihe population whom we have proved to be  especially endangered, and tor the  reasonable safeguarding of the public  health generally, we would urge that  existing regulations and supervision  of milk production and meat preparation be not relaxed; that on the .contrary Government should cause to be  enforced throughout the kingdom  food regulations planned to afford  better security against; the infection  of human beings through the medium  of articles of diet derived from tuberculous animals."

The bill providing for state monopoly of life insurance came up in tbe  Italian Chamber of Deputies last week.  Sifenor Matti, the Ministter of Agriculture, defended the bill and replied to  the arguments of its opponents. He  explained that its object was to'encourage thrift among the people, and  that the Government would utilize the  profits of the life insurance monopoly  to j. ay old age pensions.

"The constant reiteration of the doctrine that all school  teaching should be made so interesting  that children do not know that they  are working has sometimes startling  results," she said. 'Don't mention discipline in _he school room; give children interesting work and they won't  need disciplining, are some of the maxims for the teacher's guidance. Not  long ago a fellow teacher told me that  . in pursuance of this direction she said  mildly to an idle little tellow: 'don't  think you are working, John.' And he  answered in a calm, Indifferent tone:  'I'm not; I'm interested in the subject.'  The University of Wisconsin has  added to its curriculum a full athletic  course which combined with literary  work will lead to a degree of bachelor  of aits.  "The children are so quick to become  aware   of   under   currents of thought  that    perhaps  it   is  no   wonder that  they    disdain   the    student   teacher,  whom they believe   to   be   but  little  more   blessed   with   knowledge than  themselves.   Recently a student was  taking a lesson on Australian steamship lines, and, drawing a somewhat  sketchy outline of Australia, she planted Melbourne rather dizzily upon it;  'then rubbing it out quickly she said:  'Now, Muriel, just mark Melbourne  for me.'    Shall  I  put it where you  did, or in the right place?' said Muriel,  in all good faith, and with no thought  at all of pertness.  "Sometimes a student teacher does  'fall down,' as in the case of a primary teacher who came to the city with  the reputation of being one of the  cleverest in her special line in the  province. She was using Wordsworth  'tjacy Gray' for her literature lesson.  After dwelling on all the poet's Lucys,  and incidentally taking the children  into rather skyey regions, she read  with much emphasis the verse:  "At this, the father raised his hook  And snapped a fagot band;  He plied his work, and Lucy .took  The lantern in her hand."  "'What would you say was Lucy's  father's trade?' she said, brightly.  No one had the slightest idea what  'plying his work' meant, so she explained: 'Why, don't you see? He  was a shoemaker. The fagots are the  little pegs that men of this trade drive  in shoes, and he was snapping them  into place.' After .the lesson 1 asked  her for the authority for the sudden  change in the accepted idea of the  fagot-gatherer's occupation. Why I  thought it out for myself,' she said.  So I told her to think what she pleased  but to tell the children nothing of  what she was not sure."  In these days one cannot talk much  with any thoughtful woman without  running up against the question of  germs. "The schol glass? Wait till  you read our new physiology and find  some of Dr. Halpenny's tests on the  average school drinking cup, 1 solved  my problem by getting the children to  bring an egg cup. But it is a matter  left to individual teachers, and some  do not bother about it. Of course, if  you read to much 'germy' literature  you can easily become faddy. 1 was  once at a summer school when  the Chatutaugua salute was called .for  and an old7gentleman turned to me  with absolute horror on his face. 'Are  they really going to do that, vile  thing?' he said. 'Think of waving  one's handkerchief . about; Ugh!' and  he fled from the rom.  "There is just one message I would  like to give to mothers," said the  teacher as we parted company. "They  should know whether or not their  children's teacher loves children. No  one else has any right to enter this  work, for he or she ;wil| only spoil  many lives, including their own.".

(From Our Own Correspondent.)  Montreal, July 30.���������Despite the tact  that the Dominion Government has  been spending millions in money and  years in time bettering the navigable proprietors affected,  channel of the St. Lawrence from  the Great Lakes to the _ea, it is many  moons since the inland shipping fleets  have had such rough sledding as they  have had this season. For sledding  instead of sailing it has been on many  an eventful occasion. The water Is so  low that vessels have to scrape along  in spots and experienced pilots assert that it is nothing short of dangerous to attempt to run a boat  through the Cedars, the Split Rock  or the long Saulte. Freight boats are  making their runs anywhere from  eight to twenty-four hours late on  account of the caution necessary and  the time lost entering and leaving the  canals, and the Richelieu and Ontario  Navigation company's tar famed craft  which are scheduled to give a daily  thrill to throngs of tourists by shooting the rapids from Prescottr to Montreal have been forced to tie up at  the former place and give their passengers another sort of a thrill by  train for the remainder' of the journey. Engineers are pointing;out and  the pilots agree that the only appar-  ent feasible way of being assured oc a  deep tree channel during the whole  shopping season year in and year out,  dry or wet: will be to push ahead with  the construction of the' dam at the  Long Sault, a work which would materially deepen the channel in the part  which is sh'oale'st at present and which  pilots and captains fear most. Until  lately the greatest opposition to the  Long Sault project has been developed because it was thought it  would be a^ menace to navigation.  Those who understand the river, however, now say that navigation could  not be benefitted better in any other  way than by the completion of this  project.  - How to Keep Cool.  A plan for keeping cool which has  at least the attraction of novelty has  fust been received here by Chief Detective Carpenter in a letter from an  altruist in Liverpool,    and    although  the Commissioner has been so busy  tbat he has not had time as yet to  test it, he has passed it along for what  it may be worth.    According to the  inventor of this scheme, all that is  necessary for a cool night's rest, paradoxical ������s ;it amy sound, is to cover  one's self sufficiently. It is the method of covering, however, which counts.  For at single bed the first requisite is a  sticker heavy cord sufficient in .length  to regie hCrom the head to the foot of  the bed. This ls put in position over  the center of the bed about eighteen  inches above its surface. Prom this  are suspended newspapers sewn or  pasted together, falling over tShe edges  of tite >bed .to the floor, forroimg a sort  oftwit-like^structure.'^-It-isef-courae  open at each end and shmld extend  to within about eighteen inches of  tlie head. Over the newspapers is  next spread a blanket or sheet and  the cooling plant is ready. Its inventor claims .that any one sleeping under  this cover will be kept cool by the  continuous breeze moving from end  to end caused by the difference in  temperatiwe Inside and eartbslde. On  the face ������n_ it the plan eeems a little  faneifuL , But then there .are plenty  of people who do not know that water  can be cooled in a dry climate by putting it in a j)orous jar an������i placing it  in the sun. Evaporation does the  rest.  Civic Economies-  When it eomes to attempting economies of every and any kind, Montreal  is  second    to    none.    Unfortunately  many that Bound finely in'theory fail  to work  out in  practice.    Just  now  critics are chuckling oyer attempted  economies   in  the  disposal of   waste  .paper.   A four montiis supply, amounting to about six tons, of-neatly com!  pressed and baled paper was auctioned off  the other day  for  h2i.    This  auctioning off of the waste paper is  said   to   be   a  part  o!   the   policy   of  economy but just in what manner it  is  difficult  to   discover.    In   the   first  place   the   patent     reversible     paper  press which does the compressing cost  $200. and  it takes- about six men  to  run   it.    To  advertise  the   sales   and  hire an auctioneer further swells the  expense.    In   fact those     who    have  figured  it out say  that it may take  twenty ��������� years  to  pay   for  the ''pnner  press alone out of the proceeds 01 the  sale of the paper which it 'cqmj>re.se������ ij>  so neatly.

O. Box 10, Cedar Cottage.  These should not arrive later than  Tuesday night for insertion in current  issue: >  It would appear that after all the  South Vancouver Council have good  reason to fear a water famine in the  municipality and they might just as  well have explained the position when  issuing their notice to cease watering  gardens. From the reports of proceedings at the City Council we find  that South Vancouver was notified by  them to issue the warning in question,  and, furthermore, it was intimated  that the city might in the near future  decide to cut off the South Vancouver  supply entirely for a time. The reason given for this threat is is our old  friends, the wpoden pipe, alleged to  be the cause of considerable waste  through leakage". Mr. Mullett, South  Vancouver Water Superintendent,  strenuously denied this to be the  case, and in his report to the council  states that although there are some  leaks in the wooden mains these are  not large and are getting less every  day. A leak that gets less every day  is a curiosity peculiar to the municipality and samples could with advantage be exhibited at the Bursill Institute. It will be necessary to act  quickly as the specimens are becpm-  inb rarer so rapidly every day.  Considering the expense that was  incurred by the South Vancouver  Council in practically re-laying these  water pipes, it is certainly to be hoped  that Mr. Mullett's assertion as to a  minimum leakage may be correct, but  one cannot feel very sure after past  experience. Mr. Mullett's best refutation would be the publication of  his records as to quantity supplied by  f  the city and quantity paid for by consumers. To be threatened with a  discontinuance of the city water is.a  most serious position and if such a  calamity does happen it is difficult to  realize the sanitary perils and dangers we may have to face. It is at  least satisfactory to observe that for  future extensions of the water system  South Vancouver is to use metal pipes.  It speaks well for the thoughtfulness  of the authorities that the notice restricting the supply was not issued  until after the date that water rates  lor a quarter in advance were made  payable.  "Watch South Vancouver Grow"  used to be a slogan but with many  owners of gardens it is to be feared  they will  watch the  results of their  The report o fthe committee re alleged irregularities over the purchase  of school sites was considered in  camera at a meeting of the Central  Ratepayers Executive last Friday.

Owing to a ditch being ��������� left unguarded and unlighted Mr. D. C.

Vancouver 11. defeated Cedar Cottage C. C. at BrbcK-  ton Point on Saturday by 133 runs  and are now so far ahead -of-7their  rivals as to render them secure of  gaining the coveted honor. It, however, speaks well for the progress  achieved by the Cedar Cottage CYC.',  that they have at this advanced part  of the season maintained such an excellent position, in the Cricket League.

It strikes  many i>._ an anomaly that the residues who would be most interested  in the matter are not to be allowed  to vote unless they are also actual  owners and registered as such. To  show the absurdity of this position it  may be pointed out that on money  by-laws and council elections all purchasers by agreement of sale are allowed to vote. Also on the question  of7forniing._ South^Vancouver_into__a  city, and again in January last on the  proposed annexation to the City of  Vancouver agreement holders were allowed to vote. It wpuld appear only  logical that if a man or woman be  qualified to vote on such matters as  money by-laws and annexation in  January even though holders of agreements of sale they should be equally  entitled in September. The matter of  annexation is one essentially to be de-  cidede by those living within the  municipality and not by those living  on it. The majority of residents are  not registered owners and yet living  on the spot are more acquainted with  the requirements of the district than  the nominal owners residing at a distance.  Last Friday the council appointed!  Mr. It. S. Morris as electric wiring in-j  spector at a salary of $125 per month.'  Mr. Morris is to commence his duties  'adapted for their exercises.  The second anniversary services in  connection Avith Cedar Cottage Presbyterian Church were held last Sunday. Rev. Dr. Taylor, of Westminster  Hall, preached in the morning, and  Rev. Mr. Birch, of Westminster Hall,  in the evening, to large congregations.  Mr. and Mrs. George Banks, of  Cedar Cottage, have returned home  after a six weeks' visit to their summer home at Sechelt.  The death took place on Monday of  Mrs. Bessie Grier, wife of Mr. Walter  C. Grier, of South Vancouver. The  deceased lady was twenty-nine years  of age arid a native of Manitoba. The  funeral was held on Wednesday afternoon from Messrs. Armstrong & Edwards' chapel to -'.Mountain. View cemetery. Y''.''Yy'-y -  The B.C.
