Mr. Robinson has been a resident of  [Vancouver seven years and has operated the iac-  rtory two years.

Mr. Hughes has been  Iin the butchering business practically all his life.  IHe has operated three months in his present loca-  Ition. He understands the business from A to Z,  fend is a genial voung fellow to meet.  J W. J. Wells is the expert "knight of the an-  |vil" on River Road, near Fraser Avenue. He  (Continued on pag* 5)  SHALL WE PURCHASE  ELECTRIC RAILWAY?  In .1919 the City of Vancouver will have the opportunity of acquiring the cityj  tram service and electric light system. It is generally acknowledged that we are  the victims of a wry arrogant corporation, and that "dividends" play a more  conspicuous part in their policy than does "public service," and that puhlic safety  and convenience is a secondary consideration. It is also well known that the city  has very limited powers in dealing with this company, that, in fact the B. C. Electric have a "cinch" as far as their Vancouver franchise is concerned. .  The citizens have for years been expressing opinions as to what they will do  when the term of the present franchise expires. Now, this will occur about  1919, and when that time arrives we should be prepared to deal with the question.  Too frequently such opportunities are allowed to pass, or else the various public  bodies are unable to deal with them because they have not made previous arrange:  ments.  Now is the time to prepare for this rapidly approaching opportunity. If  the citizens of Vancouver are alive to their duty to posterity, they will make adequate preparations for the purchase of this electric system.  We shall have the privilege of purchasing the real property of the company  at market value, and all improvements and plant at cost, less depreciation.  This will mean a large expenditure, and we should carefully consider what  financial arrangements are necessary.  rapidly approaching  we as a city will be called upon to provide /for the borrowing of perhaps $10,000,-  000.00, then, if we are wise, we will ask ourselves the question: Is it wise at present to go the limit f -' , -       "      .   ,  Mayor Taylor argues "Yes," and gives as his reason that we shall be able to  borrow the required amount on the plant and the franchise.  We are quite willing to grant that the franchise is a valuable asset, but we  are asking a large concession when we ask for a loan equal to the total value of  the whole system. Bonds are simply a first mortgage, and it is seldom that a loan  can be obtained greate* than 50%;ojp thesecurity offered, and we are asking a lot  when we ask those from whom we borrow, to accept the franchise as an equivalent  of the other 50%.      ,. ^ 1 ;: 7  \  ������ut there is another vital point; it j&jfchisj: There is no power plant included  in the system. In other woi*ds (iinle4 otherwise provided), we shall find ourselves possessed of a system without power���������a useless thing. Hence, any wise  person will agree that wc must'provide for a power plant to be ready by that time.  Another interesting point is this: The Company will not renew" its rolling  stock or its equipment beyond a point made imperative by its immediate requirements; in fact, we shall'in all probability find ourselves faced with the necessity  of providing a large amount of new equipment, the cost of which must be provided  for in addition to the purchase of tlie system and of a power plant.  Thus it will be observed that we have only about seven years in which to  make provision for these certain requirements, that is if we are to control our  transportation system.  How this can best be done is t\iet problem which faces the city at this time.  Several suggestions have been made, but perhaps the best"is this: That a  charter amendment be secured making it compulsory for the city to set aside a certain amount annually, say, $500,000.00, of its borrowing power for tlie purpose of  securing adequate power facilities and such other things as may be necessary to  complete the purchase of the electrie system.  If such a provision were made now, we would be in a splendid position to appeal to the money markets for-our loan and would, undoubtedly be able.jto secure  much better terms than if we risk appealing only on the plant'and franchise to  finance the whole project, as suggested by the Mayor.  Of course, the other alternate is to accept the policy of Mayor Taylor of extending the franchise to 23 years from date.  His worship has repeatedly urged this policy, and would have accepted the  terms offered by the company, but fortunately the Council in its wisdom have refused to be led into this trap, Trecognizingthat to do so meant that the city would  be at the mercy of the B. C. Electric, as in the past.  By offering a five-cent fare throughout ������������������ the; whole peninsula (when annexed)  and equal light rates, the Mayor expected to have forced this through, but as stated  in absence of other vital concessions, the Council wisely refused.  In our opinion, the city has the "whip hand," and will be in a position to force  the company to.be reasonable as regards rates. Public opinion will have something to say on that question, and we believe our citizens, both in Vancouver and  surrounding municipalities, are far too wise to allow themselves to be trapped by  this bait into a.'continuance of the present unsatisfactory arrangement.  ''���������������������������Every citizen should study this question carefully' and not allow  the B.������������������ C.  Electric to perpetuate its "cinch" through the-offices'of-its representatives under  the guise of public benefactors.  ���������'���������-���������..������������������������������������' -������������������    ���������������������������..������������������- ...'���������" . ��������� ���������  ........... ���������..,....,....,.,. ,������������������������������������.. .... . ... . .,... .... . ������������������... . .  r .T..T..T.T.T .--T.t-t -T, T t , t ���������,T..<^..

C, October Oth, 1911.  - No movement in the history of modern times  has a deeper significance, and is farther reaching ���������  in influence than the Laymen's Missionary Move-"  ment.   Never since the days of Jesus of Nazareth  were   the   differing   elements   representing   the  Christian Church brought into so close and so  sensible a union as is the case within the last five  years.  Today thp entire Protestant world is moved,  and powerfully influenced by the onward impact  of the Laymen of all denominations upon and  against sin, and paganism wherever found.

Which, being interpreted,  means that the "world" famed aerial truck is to  be  completely renewed   (engines, frame,  axles,  transmission, gear, etc.), excepting the ladders.',  This is the truck which played so important a'"<  part in the recent investigation, and of jwhich theii'  Mayor, the Chief and the famous majority report1,  said it was O.

BONUSING B. 0. ELECTRIC.  BORDEN'S CABINET  Hon. }R. h. Borden completed his cabinet-  making labors jilate yesterday, following a series  of���������; conferences with his chief lieutenants, and at  midnight drove to Rideau Hall, where he presented the list to the Governor-General. Following are the names of the new ministers:  Premier and President of the Council���������Hon.  R. L. Borden.  7-Minister/of Agriculture���������Hon. Martin Burrell.  Minister off-Finance���������Hon. W. T. White.  Minister ol Customs���������Hon. Dr. J. D. Reid.  Minister of Interior���������Hon. Robert Rogers.  Minister of Railways and Canals���������Hon. Francis Cochrane.  Minister of Public "Works���������Hon. F.-.D; Monk.  Minister . of ��������� Trade and Commerce���������Hon. Geo.  E. Foster.  Minister of. Labor���������Hon. T. W. Crothers.  Postmaster-General���������Hon. L. P. Pelletier.  Minister of Justice���������Hon. J. C. Doherty.  Minister of Marine and Fisheries���������Hon. J. D.  Hazen. .  '7;   Minister of Inland Revenue ��������� Hon. W. B.  Nantel.  Minister of Militia���������Hon. Colonel Sam Hughes.  Secretary of State���������Hon. Dr. C. J. Roche.  Ministers without portfolio���������Hon. A. E. Kemp,  Hon.'-George Perley and-Senator Lougheed..  It is stated on good authority that tbe owners of property on Nanaimo street are bonusing  the B. C. Electric Railway Company to the extent  of about .$50,000.00, to induce them to lay a tram  line on Nanaimo street.  While we wish the owners of this property  no ill, we would be remiss in our duty to the public interests were we to remain silent. We must  denounce this practice as pernicious and inimical  to tbe general interests. It is a real estate booming scheme _on the one, hajid_._a.iid^_an avaricious  grasping hold-up on the other hand.  This city is growing rapidly, and the duty of  the B. C. Electric is to provide transportation to  the public in such a manner as to best serve the  general good of all, and not to accept a bribe to  place a line on any given street.  If a line is warranted on Nanaimo street (a  poinjt. we do not dispute), then it is the duty of  the ti. C.'Electric;'"''to put it there.  This sort of thing has happened in several  eases and results in a nice "clean up" to the promoters, but usually in the disappointment of the  investors.  Vancouver people imagine that every street  on which a car line is to run will be a business  street, and real estate boosters sell lots accordingly. The idea is preposterous and arrant nonsense. Some of these streets will be business and  enhance, the value of real estate, but SOME a* ill  remain third class residential, and a car line will  be more of a detriment than a help.  It is time such schemes were blocked, and as  far as"we are concerned we shall oppose the bonusing of .any corporation for doing their simple  duty.  THE NEW ASSISTANT ENGINEER.  About the only surprise in Mr. Borden's cabinet is the choice of Hon. W. T. White, as Minister of Finance. Mr. White was a Liberal up  to the recent elections, and has never been in public office before. He is,-however, an authority on  financial matters and looked on as a strong acquisition to the cabinet. Mr. Borden no doubt  has good reasons for this choice, and ha3 shown  his independence in choosing men whom he  thought best fitted for the various positions.  This is no reflection on those who were not chosen,  as it would'be impossible to place all who were,,  capable in cabinet positions.  The personnel is a strong one and speaks well  for the future pf the Dominion under the leadership of the new premier.     _ .      .  The last Council meeting provided a scene  similar to the breezy occurrances of last year,  when an announcement was made that Mr. Fellows had secured an assistant from the East, and  that the gentleman would arrive in "a-few. days.  Aid. .Rogers and Williamson led off with some  pertinent enquiries as'to. who authorized the move,  etc. Aid. MacPherson and Cameron pointed out  that it-was authorized in-the agreement the city  had with Mr. Fellows. The discussion waxed hot  and the Council seemed largely of the opinion that  they should have been consulted.  Aid. Williamson took the ground that no such  appointment should be made without sanction of  Council, and that a Western man should be secured if possible.  It was finally decided that the matter had gon^  too far to rectify, and the Engineer was sustained,  but it was clear that in future the aldermen expected to be constilted before such important ap*  pointments were made. a  THE WESTERN CALL  DEPENDS on the power thatt causes ttifeir  flight.

"That sounds very satisfactory,"  inurmured Enid, sleepily.  ' "I am overwhelmed," said Constance, who grasped the essential fact  that he had not answered her question.  Soon after nine o'clock he kiised  them good-night.   They promised not  K sit up talking. As a guarantee of  eir good behavior, Enid said she  would ring the electric bell Just before she climbed into her bunk.  ' The signal came soon, and he was  fclad.' He trusted to the fatigue, the  fresh air, the confidence of the knowledge that he was on guard, to lull  them into the security of unconsciousness. -.  ,   The behavior of the mercury 7pux-  S" ;d him. In the barometer it fell, in  e thermometer it rose. Increasing  temperature combined with low pressure was not a healthy combination in  January. Looking back through the  records of several years, he discovered a similar set of conditions one  day in March, 1891. He waa statlpned  then on the Northeast coast and failed  to remember any remarkable circumstances connected with the date, so he  consulted the lighthouse diary for  that year. Ah! Here was a possible  explanation. The ; chief-keeper, a  stranger to him, was something of a  meteorologist.  , He had written: . "At 4.15 p.m. the  barometer stood at 27.16 degrees, and  .There was a heavy sea and a No. 7  gale blowing from the S. 8.-W. About  five -o'clock the wind Increased to "a  hurricane and the sea became more  Violent than I. have seen it during flre  J ears' experience of this station.'  udglng solely by the clouds and.the  tight of birds, I should imagine that  the cyclonic centre passed over the  ���������cUly Isles and the Land's Sad."  ,   Then, next day:  !���������'������������������ "A steady northeast wind stilled tha  ita moat effectually. Within twenty*  Jaiir hours of the first signs of tha  fcurrlcahe the Channel was practicebl*  for small craft .A fisherman reports  that the coast ts strewn with wreefc-  Brand mused over the entries for a  irhUe. With bis night glasses he  peered long into tbe teeth   of   the  Sowing storm to see if be could find  e double flash of the magnificent  light on the Bishop Rock, on* of the  Atlantic   breakwaters , of tbe Scilly  J lies. It was fully thirty-five miles,  Istant, hut it flung its radiance over  the waters from a height of 143 feet,  apd the Gulf Rock lamp stood 130 feet  above high-water mark. A landsman  would poj have distinguished even  Ihe nearer revolutions of the St. Agnes  light, especially in the prevalent  gloom, and wisps of spindrift were  already striking the lantern and blur*  ring the glass. ' .  - Nevertheless, he caught the Quick  fashes reflected from clouds low, but  unbroken. As yet, there was a chance  of the incoming tide bringing better  weather, and he bent again Over the  record 6f the equinoctial gale in-1891.  fkton he abandoned this hope. The  {trowing thunder of the reef as the  tide advanced. gave the- first unmistakable warning of what was to come.  Afe a mere matter of noise the reef  rosred Its loudest at half-tide. He  understood now that a gale had swept  across the Atlantic in an irregular  track. Howsoever the winds may  rage the tides remain steadfast, and  the great waves now rushing up from  the west were actually harbingers of  the fierce blast which had created  fcem.        ���������  Of course, the threatened turmoil  la no wise disconcerted him. It  might be that the rock would remain  Inaccessible during many days. In  that.event the girls would take the  watch after the lamp was extinguished and they must learn to endure the  monotony and discomforts of existence in a storm-bound lighthouse.  They would be nervous unquestionably���������perhaps he had forgotten how  ���������ervous���������but Brand was a philosopher, and at-present he was most  taken up with wonderment at the  ���������urlous blend of circumstances which  resulted in their presence on the rock  that night.  Ha! A tremor shook the great pillar. He heard without the frensled  ghrlek of the first repulsed roller  which flung itself on the sleek and  rounded wall. Would the girls sheep  through the next few hours? Possibly, if awake, they would attribute  the vibration of the column to the  wind. He trusted it might fee so.  Shut in as they were, they could not  distinguish sounds. Everything to  them would be a confused hum, with  ���������n occasional shiver as the granite  braced'its mighty, heart to resist the  eneifiy.  =But what new note was this In the  outer chaos? An ordinary gale shuddered and whistled and chanted Its  way past the lantern in Varying tones.;  It sang, it piped, it bellowed, it played  on giant reeds and crashed with cymbals. Now���������-he looked at the clocks  after midEight���������there was -a sustained;  screech in the voice of the tempest  'which he did not remember having  heard before. At last the explanation;  dawned on him. The hurricane was  there, a few feet away, shut off from  him by mere sheets of glass.

CATCH-MY-PAL AND LOCAL  1 OPTION  Forty nationalities were represented  at the great Prohibition Congress recently held at the Hague with the approval of Queen Wilhelmina. Many  scientific facts were given by experts  in various lines and a great impetus  to the extinction of the liquor traffic  was made. Among the speeches are  the following summaries, one from an  Irishman, the other from a Canadian.  Rev. R. .1. Patterson, founder of the  Catch-my-Pal movement in Ireland,  said they could not legislate ahead of  public opinion. Much could be done  to solve the drink problem without legislation, but they all wanted legislation to put the crown on all their other  endeavors. Recently when he was  speaking at a great meeting in London, advocating'catch-my-pal methods,  a person rose and said, "Prohibition  is the only way to settle the flrink  question." He answered, "but we will  never get prohibition till we get the  people roused to prohibit." They get  out of Parliament just what they put  into it; they do not get the proper  legislation out of Parliament because  they did not put the proper men in,  and they did not put the right men in  because they had not a proper public  opinion; to put them in. Let them form  a proper public opinion and put the  right inen in, and they would get the  right legislation out. He advocated  a great.campaign inall countries along  the. lines of good citizenship, all those  who really loved God and loved their  brethren going cut to seek and save  the slaves of drink, ..as the Catch-my-  Pal Society was going out, and thus,  while saving the victim of drink, forming a public opinion in favour of destroying by legislation the destroyerof  the' people*   7  He knew of one constituency in Ireland in which a candidate said he  "sympathized" with Temperance legisr  lation. A deputation from the Catch-  my-Pal Union said they had had enough of "sympathy" what they wanted  was action. The deputation asked  him would he undertake in writing  to vote for Local Option, ,no matter  by what party a Bill was introduced  to Parliament, for if he would not so  undertake, 2,000 members of the Catch-  my-Pal Union would refuse to vote for  him. The candidate entered into an  undertaking by signing his name to the  deputation's document. Let them get  the people roused and they would rise  to save their lands with a power which  no Government could withstand.  Controller F. S. Spence, of Toronto,  said: The liquor problem bas to be  faced in Canada as in other lands, and  w.e have the special difficulty of. a  vast area���������more than 3,500,000 square  miles���������with the sparse population of  8,000,000. There are, of course, compensating advantages. Our new country is filling lip with a virile stock,  the enterprising and progressive element, the young blood of the many  nations represented here today, alive  to the importance of developing the  best possible social conditions, and  prompt to use political power ;for  that purpose. Therefore, (Canadian  legislation mainly follows public opinion and takes hold of the issues created by the liquor traffic. '  Generally speaking, our legislators  aim at restricting,the drink business  as far as the general concensus of public opinion will permit and delegating  ttyid^ri^horitie^^  restriction or suppression, such as  local sentiment will endorse. There  are nine provinces in Canada, each  having its own system of liquor legislation, all subject to the possible ever-  riding effect of a general national Local Option Law, where used, known as  the Canada Temperance Act," under  which any County or City may vote  out. all liquor selling. The provincial  license laws also embody, in most cases, Local Option powers applicable to  similar or smaller areas, besides various features of a general prohibitory  character. , Under this legislation, in  the largest province, Ontario^ the  granting of liquor licenses and the retail sale of liquor are prohibited in  uiore than one-half of the local municipalities. The exact figures are as  follows:  lichee ;f������e7p1a[ $1,600, equal to 4,000  guilders; ^-with an additional impost  of "a percentage on all bar-room receipts above a certain figure. Every  licensed shop or bar is closed from  seven o'clock on Saturday night in Ontario only, till six o'clock on Monday  morning, on every public election day  and on Christmas Day. There are many  other restrictions imposed upon the  business. Licences are issued and the  liquor law is enforced by special officers appointed by the Government for  the performance of that duty.  As to the future of the Temperance  Movement in Canada, I have only to  say that the tendencies and forces  which have produced the present situation are operating without observable  diminuition. . Most of the Christian  Churches, Roman Catholic and Protestant, are working vigorously for the extermination, as far as possible, of the  drink evil. The strenuous requirements  of all phases of the active life of this  young country, include the' exclusion  of any indulgence that might impair  keenness of perception,, steadiness of  nerve, or clearness of judgment. There  are well-informed students of our social life and movement who today feel  as confident that the liquor traffic will  be totally prohibited by law in Canada, as they do that the sun will rise  in the east tomorrow morning.  What about B. C.? When the people say Local Option, it will be!  D.

Pride of place  and a laudable ambition to excel go  side by side ���������'with; a settled dislike of  limelight exploitation and any form  of newspaper notoriety. The ethical  distinction; between the trades and  professions, which was so strongly accentuated in earlier days, ahdsurvives  in certain. parts of the world even today, was based originaly upon the fact  that the professional man was supposed to take up his life's work primarily because he loved both his profession and the people whom it might  benefit. The personal gain which it  brought was a secondary consideration. In this respect he was distinguished from the man of commerce,  who bought, and sold first and last for  pecuniary gain. This ethical distinction or dividing line between the  trades and professions has largely disappeared: and we are sufficiently optimistic to believe tliat it has been  due to filtration of the professional  spirit into the commercial world.  A case in point occurred on the  steamship "Carmania" when she re-.  cently put into Halifax for coal, and  took advantage of the opportunity to  make some minor repairs to her low-  pressure turbine. A smal leakage  pipe, leading, from the turbine to the  condenser, had developed signs of  weakness, and it .became necessary to  close certain gates which were inaccessible from \the exterior of the engine. Ordinarily the turbines would  have Iieen allowed to cool down for repairs of this character, but in order to  save from six to eight hours' time,  which would be necessary for cooling  off, the engineers decided to take off  the manholes and send one of their  humD������r^in^to^l^^  was done, and although the internal  temperature wias about 175 degrees,  the , task was successfully accomplished. ;  Upon the arrival of the ship in New  York the event was seized upon by  the daily press reporter, and a repair  job which was designated by the engineers themselves a, mere matter of  routine duty, was magnified into a  story of stupendous neroism and magnificent devotion to duty which, although it may have provided an interesting quarter of an hour for the average citizen over his morning cup of  coffee, served only to provoke mingled  consternation and ridicule among the  engine room's staff of the ship itself.  Although a temperature of "175 degrees  is scarcely that in which the average  individual would choose to take even  moderate exercise, it is a fact that in  some engine rooms, especially in the  tropics, temperature have been known  Tofcal _ 822'to nm U1> not so ver^' ,ar from that  j given.

Roberts,, director of the  United States mint at Denver, Col.,  said lately that Uncle Sam has more  than $1,000,000,000 worth of gold, in  the Treasury, and that the gold coin is  enough to keep the country in -supply  twenty years; that the Treasury is  buying gold at the 'rate of $120,000,000  a year, and that at the end of twenty  years there should be $3,000,000,000 of  gold in the Treasury. The new policy  of issuing certificates against the bullion in the mint instead of making  money from the gold has saved the  government $100,000, and one of the  reasons for this is that most persons  prefer paper money for actual use and  circulation.  ;ilfirsGood,WeHavelt  IfWeHaveia'sGood  Home  Cooked  Meats  .

The advent of fuel oil has become  an important factor in railway locomotion. It is estimated by the United  - States Geological Survey that from  20,000,000 to 25,000,000 tons of coal  per annum are replaced by oil, and a  large part of this is used by locomotives.  In this connection there is interest  -in -a-statement-which���������will- appear _:in_  the forthcoming petroleum  report of  the Geological Survey showing the extent to which oil is used as a locomotive fuel.    The author of this report,  David T. Day,    computes    the  total  length of railway lines operated during  1910 with petroleum as a fuel to he  21,075  miles, a  trackage    practically  . equivalent to  that    of five transcontinental lines    stretching    across the  United States    from ocean to ocean.  The number of barrels of fuel oil used  by the railroads (42 galons per barrel)  was 24,526,883.    This includes -768,762  ��������� barrels used by the railroads as fuel  other than in locomotives.   The total  number of miles run by oil burning  engines during the year was 8S,31S,947.  This would have carried one engine  or  train  around   the   world   approximately 3,530 times.  The advantages of oil as locomotive  fuel over coal have been stated by  Eugene McAuliffe as .many. They include decreased cost of handling oil  from cars to engines, with practically  no loss by depreciation due to such  handling; evaporation losses suffered  by coal as not applying to oil; saving  of time at terminals for engine cleaning and providing increased mileage  per engine, the oil capacity of the tender being about 150 per cent, of that  of coal; freedom from physical failure of firemen in extreme hot weather;  delivery of oil being unaffected by  ���������labor conditions, the coal situation necessitating in some instances heavy  storage at great expense; greater  cleanliness in handling all passenger  ' trains, lack of smoke and immunity  from right-of-way forest fires.  The expeittse of. equipping the aver-  7 age locomotive to burn oil is about  $800, and the cost of large steel storage tanks'is about '2-~> cents per barrel;  but the necessary terminal ,, facilities  for handling oil cost 50 per cent, less  than the amount required to handle  coal. a  FIRST DAY,  4:00 p.m.���������Service of Intercession  Led by Rev.

September  for the first five months of the fiscal  year was $62,036,616, an increase of  nearly $6,250,000 over the same period  last year. During the first five months  of the fiscal year Canada spent on public works including railways and  canals $8,982,381.  When a woman begins to feel nervous she should lie down for ten or  fifteen minutes. To get real rest she  must exclude all thought of work from  her mind. If possible she might have  a restful picture where she could look  at it. Or she could read some short,  bright story or article. She might  keep a book, of short stories near her  couch.  ���������Rust on Gas Stoves.  Rust on the over and boiler of a gas  stove is caused by the steam from the  food, which condenses on the metal as  it cools. About once in ten days or  two weeks rub the entire surface of the  baking and broiling ovens with a cloth  wet with kerosene. Do this at night,  and by morning nearly all the odor will  have disappeared. The heat will drive  off what little remains.  The French dirigible balloon ������Adju-  yunt Reau was launched recently.

To Clean Stained Enameled Utensils  Is there any way to remove the stain  from enameled cooking utensils?  Yes, you can keep your enameled  ware almost as fresh and bright as  new by the use of soda. If a saucepan  becomes discolored or burned do not  scrape with a knife or any hard substance which would scratch or break  the enamel. Fill the saucepan with  water and place on the range. Add a  tablespoonful df sal-soda for every,  quart of water. Let the saucepan remain on the back of the range nearly  a day. The hot soda-water can be  poured into the sink or it may be bottled for use again.

Those,in delicate health, or of very  prominent social position which entails  an interminable visiting list, are not  expected to call in person, but may  send or leave cards without inquiring  for their friends. The latter are very  punctilious in the prompt recognition  of every call made upon them.  Those whom their work absorbs during the day may call when they please  or when they can, "and no questions  asked."  A dinner-call���������which the French  name the visit of digestion���������should be  made within a fortnight after the entertainment. If a regret has been sent  the obligation is more binding. After  a luncheon the same rule obtains.

Gentlemen:  , As chairman of the deputation tbat  waited "on you last night, I have to say  on behalf of my colleagues, that now  you know the feeling regarding the  establishment of a pool room in this  district it is open to you to revoke the  license before the matter goes further,  we fully intend to get the license revok  ed in the near future, and it seems a  pity that now the whole matter is in  its initial stage that further trouble  should not be saved by your falling in  with the publicly expressed wishes of  the great majority of the citizens of  South Hill, by revoking the license.  "There were two others matters we  intended bringing up before you last  evening, only we had other meetings,  and time pressed. Sunday Trading and  Sunday Building. Regarding Sunday  trading, as you council is aware the  New Westminster Municipality, finding  it had not the power to suppress this  has this week brought in a By-law forbidding it, and as there are certain  stores here, which under pretence of  an Ice Cream stall, sell every kind of  groceries, etc., to the detriment of ther  more respectable stores who do a six  days a week trade, we should be glad  if your council would bring in a similar by-law. _- "7  "With regard to Sunday building, the  only by-law at present existing, forbids such to be carried on to the annoyance of any minister and congregation. We believe that North Vancouver, recognizing the necessity of stop-  ing such building, has passed a by-law  to that effect, and we ask that your  council should do the same."

The Rev. Owen Bulkeley was elected  chairman, and Mr. Eakin (Presbyterian) secretary 7of the meeting. The  chairman congratulated the audience  on being present at so unique an assembly, the ministers of every Christ-'  ian Church being present, besides the  most prominent members of their congregations, as well as others of different schools of thought, and he declared that as South Hill itself was a pure  and desirable place of residence, so the  parents of the growing youth of the  place, and the ministers who were  their pastoral guides were determined  as far as in them lay to keep it pure  and to rule out as undesirable and  unnecessary, all poolrooms and saloons, and to.protest in.the strongest  possible manner against the council,  who _were the servants of the public,  taking upon themselves to decide matters that deeply affected the morality  of the neighborhood. Mr. Jacquot then  read out a resolution protesting against a poolroom license having been  granted without an opportunity of protest being given to the citizens of  South Hill, and condemning all pool  rooms as being subversive to public  morality. The Revs. Redmond (Baptist) and Pye (Methodist) spoke clearly and forcibly on the same lines and  pointed out how defective the machinery of Municipal law must be to allow  of such proceedings taking place. Mr.  Eakin, who has bad practical experience of pool rooms, endorsed the remarks that had been made, and spoke  very strongly against any such place  'finding a footing in South Hill. Other  speakers followed, manj, considering  that the matter had not been dealt with  severely enough, for as fathers of grow  ing boys, they did not wish contamination to be brought to their doors, but  it was reserved to Mr. Richardson to  speak from the depth of a righteous  indignation in terms and words, the  purport of which none could misunderstand, of the intense loathing he had for  all pool rooms, and it was a notable  fact that former habitues of these  places-.-were the most pronounced in  their condemnation of them. Persons  holding-contrary^jopinion^^ere_in^_te_d  to state them but none doing so the  resolution was carried unanimously,  and a delegation of eight appointed  to convey it to the Municipal Council  the following evening.  On Wednesday evening the ministers  representing the four Christian churches, and the four, other lay delegates,  including two ladies, waited on the  Reeve and Municipal jCouncil ot* South  Vancouver,, being introduced by the  chairman of the public meeting, the  Rev. Owen Blukeley, who, after dwelling on the representative character ot"  the deputation, stated that they were  there to protest in the words of the resolution (wliich was read by TMr. Eakin) against a license for a pool room  having been granted as it had, without  notice to the general public aud so  without affording any chance of a pro  test being first lodged; he questioned  the legality of the whole proceeding  also as to what had been licensed, and  what not, and said, the matter would  not be allowed to rest where it was as  a majority of the citizens of the dis  trict were resolutely opposed to any  pool room becoming a permanent affair  at South Hill. The Reeve referring  to the minutes of the proceedings affirmed that all legalities had been ob  served, though nothing was entered as  to the number of the lot, or the exact position the pool room would occupy. It was felt by the deputation  that the whole licensing question was  extremely unsatisfactory and the Rev.  Mr. Redmond put this view of the case  very clearly before the Council. Reeve  Pound said that the Council had no  idea that the citizens were, opposed  to .a pooi rqom for others had been  licensed iu South Vancouver. Of  course the council had no wish to act  contrary to the opinions of the citizens, but he did not think anything  had been done contrary to law; it was  open, to the public to have the laws  SOME SHORT TALKS WITH BUSY MEN  (Continued from page 1)  has followed the business fifteen years, and has  -conducted the blacksmith shop in his present- location since last February.

WORLD WIDE MOVEMENT  7 (Continued from Page 1)7      7       :  Birth.   This or nothing differentiates Christianity  from the religions of mankind.  Christianity is a Religion of War and not of  Peace. True it is that the man whose mind is  stayed upon the Lord has "peace that passeth  understanding." But at the same time, that very  man, in the active and fearless discharge of duty,  is the man who suffers most by active opposition  and persecution from others.  ? Jesus, the Anointed Saviour of mankind, was  at peace with His Father, as His followers may be,  but He was at war daily all His life. In the end,  after the fiercest persecutions long-continued, He  was murdered in the most shameful manner. All  the followers of Jesus were persecuted, and His  disciples were nearly all put to death, for carrying  the Gospel to the people of different lands.  The best reformers of all ages, those who had  for their fellow-men nothing but blessing, were  persecuted, and will be until the end of this age  at'all events.  Too often our preachers and teachers speak of  Christianity as the "Evangel of peace." True it  is the evangel of personal peace to the man who  has faith in God, no matter what comes his, way,  whether sympathy or persecution. But as between  man and man, as between families, communities,  and as between nations, it has been war from the  first until this day.  Christ himself said-Pie brought war, just such  war as would separate the members of a family.  History,shows that eH told-the-truth.  The very works of righteousness in all ages  prodiiee .war, fierce and bloody war. Our laws  are. framed'to" punish crimes against the person  and the state. Plow "numerous these crimes are  one may get a notion of'by looking at the statistics  of our jails and penitentiaries. There -e hundreds  ^^viIe"criminals^in^ou-r^houscs=of-cdiT.eetion,Tte^  straint and punishment. They are at war particularly against the men' who are most prominent in  'restraining them, ancl effecting their capture and  punishment.  The best .ind most upright in. active life of all  time are those who have been most oppressed,  maligned'and persecuted. As it was," so it is and  will be for a long time to come.  The most bitter wars of modern times'-have  been..the, result of some phase of justice and injustice arrayed in deadly strife and enmity. Let'  the-mind run over the fierce conflicts'in .and be-"  tdeeu the Greek, Roman'.and Protestant churches.  Hundreds, of thousands have been, murdered in  the name of religion and in the name of the Man  of Nazareth.  Moslemism, Confucionism, Bhuddism, Braham-  inism and Shintoism have had the name of being  careless of human life, and much human havoc has  been wrought in their names and by their official  representatives.  But the Christian sects have done their share  in carrying on murderous war under the cloak of  religion.  ������ Now, it is a plain proposition that Jesus-Christ  was right 'when He announced that He brought  warwnot a temporary war���������to the human family.  And yet. when lie announced that awful fact He  was rather foretelling-that which would happen  than that which! ought to happen. He was a  prophet of the highest order. He foresaw the  future and He saw "most clearly that ignorance,  prejudice/false teaching, personal hate, selfishness.  unholy ambition, sensuality and gross materialism  would be arrayed against His follower^ as truly,  as against Himself. Therefore, He spoke as a  prophet.  But-He never once said that'these things ought  to be, either in His day or in the future. Would  be is very different from ought to be.  The-..thing-that-ought ..'to ..be. and yt must; be  sometime in.the future "is" universal "Peace" <m  Earth and Good-will to Men."  ;i Here is. the one thing most important and prominent in tlie Laymen's-Forward Missionary Movement. All the Chrii-tian denominations therewith,  connected are imbued with the spirit of good-will  towards one another and to .'all'mankind.' And  ���������rood-will will win .mt in the end.    Therein our  Leader showed the highway to the human family,  and proved Himself grand, great and wise beyond  all measurement or comparison. He submitted  Himself to the hates and persecutions of Hig inferiors because He was laying the foundations of  human safety broad and deep. Since then He has  been waiting.and watching His people groping in  the dark, but always coming towards the light..  And the Light is approaching, or better still, His  people are approaching the "true light whieh  lighteth every man who cometh into the world."  Until recently members of the differing denominations of the Christian church, who did not understand the primary principles of their Master's  teaching, were bitter enemies and spent much time  in back-biting and persecuting one another.  But the day of freedom, of enlightmeht, of a  broader vision is dawning, and being forcefully  forwarded by the rank and file of the workers, in  the Christian church. And in so far as this is  true and has become a working principle among  men of all nations and tongues, just so far this  is a world-movement, and far superior to any other  kind of reform or movement which can comesinto  the heart and life of the human family. v  Now whilst this is true, there is no possibility of  a common ground being found on which may stand  together Christianity and the paganisms' and  heathenisms of this world. I use these words because I see from time to time in newspapers and  magazines such expressions as would lead to the  conclusion that the religion of Jesus aud that of  Moslem can find a common basis of co-operation,  and a peaceful journey; side by side. This is  impossible. Jesus and the murderer cannot cooperate while governed by the life and love principles of the one, and the death and hate elements  of the other.  The Orientalisms of today, whether found in or  out of Asia, are absolutely and eternally ineompa-  ible with the plain, simple, everyday religion of  the Man of Galilee. This applies to every form .of  teaching and practice of the present-day Asiatic,  or ancient Babylon type.  However, in Vancouver will be seen in a few  days a body of men who have adopted, and are  trying to live out the spirit of love to all men,  and w?h oare trying to show forth the life and  teaching of their Saviour as they labor among their  i'ollow-mea.  , As Sir Andrew Fraser, K. C. S. I.; Dr. S. D.  Chown; John R. Mott, L. L. D.; Rev. Canon Gould;  Rev. Dr. Mackay, and others address Vancouver  audiences during this month, they, one and all,  ���������will show forth that Christianity is big enough  for all mankind, as large as the world, is greater  than the Turko-ltalian, or auy other war that may  be cited from the annals of the human race���������ex-  ���������eeptyhe^wajL0������_Right agajnstJWrong, thc_cause  of .all wars.  That which stirred all Canada and tlie whole  Empire in the late election was the highest and  purest sentiment. And that wluch is stirring the  entire Christian world today, and is indexed  somewhat.by the Laymen's movement, is a hiyli  and holy sentiment. It is Divine Love on the sulo  of the Great Father, and a return love ou the side  of those who in some dey fee have fell the powu*  of His love in their hearts and are desirous of telling the good news to others. This mutual love  is a sentiment full of life, and is both the basis  and result of the New Birth, the one great differentiating characteristic of Christianity as compared with all human religions and philosophh-s.  This is the One Great Challenge to the World  in the presence of all other claimants of a spiritual  sort. And those who are pressing this truth first  and foremost all over the world and at great cost  of time, men and money, are those of the Anglo-  Saxon race. They are, and have been, the light-  carriers and publishers of the fruth to the peoples  of,|this round world. And why is this the mbmen-  tuous fact of this age?  The answer is plain indeed." It js because the  Saviour gave His message and commands to His.  own blood brethren, mostly of the Israelites other  than the Jews? Ancl these very Israelites are the  nations of Anglo-Saxons, as history proves. 'Tlie  Scriptures show that the message was delivered  primarily to "the. Lost Sheep of-the House of  Israi'l."-' AVhen the kingdom was taken from the  Jews it was given to a nation doing the works  of-righteousness.  This is the momentous fact, making possible the.  wonderful missionary enterprises of Anglo-^axon-  clcm, and explaining the cause at the same time.  Li-Abraham all the families of the earth were to he  hb'sscd. And -Jehovah has been, and is now, busy,  making good His own word. And lit* makes good  in His own way and through His own.

Among the persons who have re  cently made provision for old age.when  it comes are two sisters aged respectively 33 and 34 years. They have purchased from the Canadian Government  a last survivor annuity, that is an annuity which will give them together an  income of $600 a year so long as they  both live,, and to be continued to the  survivor so long as she lives. The cost  of this annuity, $3,643.65, had been invested at 5 per cent, and had brought  in less than $185.00 annually, with the  difficulty and annoyance of reinvestment. The annuity becomes payable  when the younger sister attains the  age of 55, and. should both die before  that time the purchase'money will be  refunded to their heirs with 3 per cent  compound interest.

The wind was travelling seventy,  eighty, mayhap a hundred miles an  hour. Not during all his service, nor  in earlier travels through distant  lands, had he ever witnessed a storm  of such lury. He thought he heard  something crack overhead. He looked  aloft, but all seemed well  next day did he  discover  "The blast oi "the"terrible ones!

His  physical senses were elevated to the  supernatural. He seemed to acquire  abnormal powers of sight and hearing.

He went to the  southwest point of the glass dome, but  the lantern,was so blurred with rivulets of water that he could see nothing  save a tawny vastness where the light  fell on  the tlying spindrift.  To make sure, he tested the auriscope again, and with the same result.  "A vessel is approaching from the  southwest," he announced, gravely.  "Evidently she is whistling for help.  I hope she will not attempt to approach too near the reef. I must have  a look out."  He put on an oilskin, coat and tied  the strings of a sou'wester firmly beneath his chin.  The small door of the lantern opened towards the Bay, so he had no  difficulty in gaining the gallery. The  girls watched him forcing his way  against the wind until he was facing it  and gazing 111 the direction of the  Scilly Isles.  (Continued Next Week.)  Sold Out  y  C C.

They were so superbly indifferent to all this pandemonium. Just little brass screwB, doing their work, and heeding naught  beside. Suddenly there came to him  the triumphant knowledge that the  pure white beam of the light was hewing its path through the savage assailant without as calmly and fearlessly  as it lit up the ocean wilds on a midsummer night of moonlight and soft  zephyrs.  ' "Thank God for that!" he murmured aloud. "How can a man die better  than at his post?"  | The ring of iron beneath caught his  ears. . He turned from the lamp. Constance appeared, pale, with shining  eyea. She carried the lantern. Behind her crept Enid, who had been  complex burner, his ear caught a  change in the external din.

Her eyes filled. Even tho hint ot  a reproach from him was Intolerable.  For the life of her she could no longer  control the flood of terror which welled up beyond restraint.  ' ������P6rgive me, dag," she murmured,  but I thought, and I still think, that  "You have been. The lighthouse  bas outfaced a hurricane such as haa  not visited England before ln my lifetime.

At the last meeting of the Council  delegates from the congregations of  several churches in the vicinity waited upon1 the council with reference to  a pool room license which they understood was to be considered regarding  premises on the corner of Ferris Road  and Fraser Avenue.  The purpose of the delegation was  defined by the Rev. Owen Bulkeley,  the spokesman, who claimed to speak  as a representative of the residents of  South Hill, who were strongly opposed to the establishment of a,pool room  in that section. The deputation wished to know if the license had been  granted whether it had been legally  so granted and whether the documents  applied to the present building on Fraser avenue only and were not applicable to additions or alterations.  In reply the Reeve, Mr. Pound, was  able to reassure the delogafaon as to  the proper legal methods having been  adopted in granting the license in question and he stated that unless charges  were laid proving that the licensee  was unfit to.conduct the business of  this kind he failed to see how the  Council could meet their wishes, so  long as the requirements of the law  were complied with. The license holder had arranged to erect a building  in accordance with the requirements  of their building inspector and in every  regard the deputation was too late.  The Reeve instructed that in future  notices of protests be given in time  to enable due consideration of the  matter before the meeting.  The B. C. Telephone Company were  represented by a gentleman who placed before the Council certain plans regarding the erection of poles for the  company's service,- but Councillor  Burgess having remarked as to the  Company's previous-neglect-in- regard  to similar undertakings this matter  was submitted to the Board of Works.  Engineer Mr. Morrison and his assistant, Mr. Royston, both handed in  their resignations at the last Council  meeting and same were accepted.  Active steps to cope with the position were at pncei taken by the council  and Messrs. Cleveland and Cameron.  the well known engineers were appoint  ed to supervise the department. Mr.  Cooper, who was formerly in the City  engineer's department has been deputed by Messrs. Cleveland & Cameron to  undertake South Vancouver work, and  in his able charge some of the difficulties and tangles have already shown  signs of speedy solution.  W. R.

C,  October 9,1911.  Dear Sir:���������  I should be glad if your paper would  take up the case of the recent granting  of a license for a Pool Room on Fraser  Ave. near Ferris Road, which has excited a good deal of attention in this  neighborhood. We who formed the deputation who waited on the Council  with a protest last Tuesday evening  were told we were too late as the licence had been granted.  But the facts of the case are as follows which we did not then know):  On the Saturday evening previous,  a letter was written to the Licensing  Commission, who is the Chief of Police,  asking him not to issue a license until a formal protest had heen made  against- it,- and -that - letter -was placed  in the Municipal Hall letter box on the  Sunday morning; on the Monday morning the applicant for the licence called  early at the Municipal hall, because he  had heard his application would be  opposed; and before the Licensing  Commissioner arrived and could attend to his correspondence the* license  had been handed over by a clerk, and  then, when the Chief of Police got the  letter he found the license had already  been given. One supposes his signature had been attached to various  licenses for convenience sake.  By this it will be seen that a letter  was actually lying all Sunday in the  Municipal HaU, requesting delay in  granting this license so that our protest was not too late at all.  We hold, therefore, that the Chief of  Police, knowing the opposition there  is, is at liberty now to revoke the license.
