Black, who, after one  year of satisfactory service as Alderman in Ward  Five, is again a candidate for election.  Mr. Black does not overlook the larger interests of the whole city while never forgetting the  particular needs of Ward Five., His majority  should be significant.  Thomas Evans, of Ward Four, devotes his time  1o Aldermanic matters.  WARP VW. AWHBRWJM  JUdermen Trimble and Rogers are again  candidates for their" ward. In their care  this ward is rapidly coming to the front.  Both, men are intensely practical and have  given excellent service on the, Board of  Works and Water Committee, they have  looked after the interest of their ward and  as'a result much needed work has been done.  Many sewers, streets and,water mains' have  l>een brought into good condition, which  work was badly needed in this new-district.  C. E. Mahon is well and favorably known in  "Vancouver*  Prominent jiniong the best representatives- of  <onr City wards ^ Alderman Thomas Evans; No  man,in Vancouver,more fully makes a conscientious study of his\ward and the whole city than  this modest unobtiusive representative of Ward  Four.

Ti$ city^ needs lum";\$4^   ^  Council.  The platform addresses of Mayor T. S. Baxter are both interesting and instructive���������  just what we have learned to expect from him. * Few speakers have the ability to hold an audience  with as close attention as Mr. Baxter. A good voice, a well furnished mind, excellent judgment,  perspicuity of thought, a choice vocabulary and honesty of purpose are ftfc^bwji|������ his pjatfprm_  efforts that captivate and convince; His speech in Britannia High school on Monday night was  a credit to himself and the city.  Ratepayers, like other mortals, love exeitement, and would doubtless enjoy a well contested Mayoral campaign with T. S. Baxter as a principal, but thus far no strong opposition has  appeared. Other names have been mentioned, but men of Baxter's calibre are wanting; so the  fight, if any, will be comparatively tame. ���������/  We must not conclude' that there is a dearth of Mayoral timber in������������������':th.e city. Not so; we  could mention a score of desirables'; but the thought does not materialize into a real live conr  testant.  Upon reflection we~conclude that a contest is wholly unnecessary. Mayor Baxter is  the man the electors of Vancouver desire for their highest seat of honor. One /term has fully  demonstrated bis fitness for the position. By his management in the midst of hard times and d'8-  couragement the city has been put on-a good, safe and sound financial basis, and its future  success has been assured.  Vote for him by an overwhelming majority. '      ���������  Ward Eight has been well represented in the  City Council since before it was a ward by Alderman Frank Trimble. He has been vigilant,  painstaking and'business-like in his devotion to  his constituency, hence has secured for the Ward  many x improvements, such as lights, walks,  plank roads and permanent improvements, including' Kingsway.    :;  - Work has commenced on the. joint-sewer  scheme and money has been furnished for* the  laterals in Ward Eight.

Its average, tensile strength is 24,000 pounds  per square inch; in other words a bar  of this wood one, inch square will  (iri'theory, at, least) hold up a weight  of twelve" tons. This is equal to  good cast iron.   .No similar tests of  Canadian woods have as��������� yet been  made, but at the Forest Products Laboratories," recently established by  trie Dominion Government at McGill  University, it is proposed to investi-  'gate the mechanical properties of  native tree species, with a view of  determining, on a scientific basis,  their utility for structural work.

Vosper.  The Murder of Mr. Norway.  One day in the winter of 1839-40,  Mr. Norway, a well to do farmer in  the neighbprhood' of Wadebridge,  was in his yard attending to his cattle when two,young men came in the  yard looking for work. They were  brothers named William and James  Lightfoot. They lived in a miserable  thatched cottage or rather hovel  about two miles away, and eked out a  precarious living thieving, poaching  and doing occasional odd jobs for the  neighboring, farmers. Mr. Norway  was a most kind hearted gentleman,  and no poor man, whatever his character or reputation, appealed to him  in vain.' Work was slack on the  farm, however, but he invited the  men into, the kitchen and gave them a  good, square meal. He then hunted  up some clothes and when, with many  expressions of gratitude, the men left  the house they were' better clothed  and fed than they had been for many  a day.  One Saturday night a few weeks  after this 'some farmers', returning  from. St. Columb market, found the  body of Mr. 'Norway lying beside  the road, i He had been thrown from  his horse and " brutally beaten to  death'and robbed. This awful tragedy caused a great sensation in the  neighborhood, and sevral persons  Vtere soon arrested on suspicion,  among whom-was a Mr. Hi, who died  in Vancouver about" ten years ago,  who, however, easily proved he was  not there, but had passed over the  ground about an hour previous ��������� to  the" murder.  , v. -     - .  Someweeks pajssed when, someone  happening to' pasfc the- Lightfootfs  cottage heard a violent altercation  between the two brothers. From  ���������some expressions let fall his suspicions. werek aroused and he informed"  the authorities4of what he had heard.  The cot|age was searched; some  blood stabled 'clothing was found  which had .actually belonged to Mr.  Norway. The men were arrested;  they confessed the crime, but', declared that jr was not Mr. Norway  they intended to~ rob, but another  wealthy farmer, whom they were  waiting for. They told how they hid  in the hedge, and,when their victim  approached they, sprang out, seized  his bridle rein, knocked him from his  horse, and clubbed, him to death, and  robbed him. The "two brothers were  hairged on the same gallows on April  13, 1840, in the .presence of thousands of spectators, and the clothes  they wore on the gallows were the  same the murdered gentleman' had  giverf them some months previously.  Their ages are given on the records  as William Lightfoot, aged 26; James  Lightfoot,, aged 23.  A most Interesting sequel "to trie  above will appear in the next week's  Call.

A  i  \  CHARLES BOAEDMAN  Electors of,Ward Pour beforetyou vote think  of Charles Bqardman and examine his platform.  Many things conspire to make him a valuable  man in civic affairs. He is vigorous! courageous,  energetic, intelligent and thoroughly independent. His views on the needs of Ward Four and  the city are clear cut and pronounced. His spinal  column is healthy and his brain clear. The ward  would be safe in his hands. All signs point to his  election.  Alderman Alex Cleland and Ward Two are  good friends.   He deserves re-election.  J. C. McArthur, who is a candidate for Reeve  honors in South Vancouver, is well and favorably  known in Greater Vancouver.  Ex-Alderman Robert MacPherson is again before the electors of Ward Pour.  Fred W. Welsh  RE-NUMBERING KINGSWAY.  One complaint which might justly be registered against the present City Council is  the matter of Kingsway re-numbering. The  existing condition is unbearable to those who  are daily subjected to the annoyance resulting therefrom.  The reason it has not been attended to is  simply because of indifference. This is a fit  time to draw the attention of the. Aldermen  of Wards V. and VIII. to this case and ask,  "What do youf intend to do about it���������it is  up to you." #  W. H. P. Chibb of the well known house Clubb  & Stewart is again^before the electors of Vancouver as School Trustee.  Vote him in.  CHURCH EXEMPTION  Although the electors of the city by an overwhelming majority voted, against any special  privileges in way of exemption of church prop-  perty being extended to religious denominations  still the Roman Catholic church is making preparations to again bring the question to the front,  some of the candidates for Municipal honors having already been interviewed on the question.  It is to be hoped that any Aldermanic candidate  ,who is in favor of the exemption of church property from taxation will be left at home by the  electors.  Who knows Mayor T. S. Baxter best trusts him  most.  The-name-of Reeve J. A.-Kerr isclosely connected with many improvements in South Vancouver.  F. W. Welsh, candidate for School Trustee, is  an old citizen of Vancouver, having lived here^  since May, 1889.   In Septembr, 1890, he came to s  live in Ward Five, and can claim to be one of its  v oldest residents.   Since March, 1891, he has been ,  actively engaged in the grocery business, from  1891 to 1902 in Mount Pleasant as a member of '  ��������� the firm of Welsh & Nightingale, well known to  old timers, and since that time until the present  as owner and manager of the London Grocery  Company. - -     ^  This is his first appearance as a candidate  for any civic offiee in the gift of the people, and  his long business experience amply qualifies him  for a seat on the School. Board, where, in the'  opinion of so many of our citizens sound business  management is required. / ' T  We feel that when business men of the type'  of Mr. Welsh offer themselves as candidates for  office the citizens can all- afford to lose the opportunity to elect them.  We .freely endorse him and expect to see him  elected.  SCHOOL TRUSTEE  Electors of Vancouver:   ,    ,  Your  vote  and influence are respectfully  solicited for  F, W.

Smith's platform evidence his familiarity "with the peculiar  needs of Ward Four. He has given the matter  close attention and speaks as one who knows  whereof he affirms. He is comparatively young,  but, as a business man, has had a wide experience  in dealing with public matters.  Industry, ambition, carefulness, education and  a tendency to public'duties'emphasize his claims  to tha attention and suffrage of the electors.  TO THE ELECTOR'S OF WARD FOUR  J08EPHHOSKIN  Read.the platform of Joseph Hoskin, a live  candidate for Aldermanic honors in Ward Four.  In this platform are five planks, all of which  deserve your critical examination. If elected,  Mr. Hoskin has time to serve the ward from January to December. He is a Britisher and a.believer in the future of Vancouver. He .promise*  many good things in the event "of his being selected as Alderman. Study the man and his  methods before you pass him by. He is a "good,  fellow.'^  Dear Sir or Madame:���������  I have the honor of soliciting your vote and  influence to elect me' as an Alderman for Ward  Four in the Vancouver City Council. For the  past two years I have been approached by influential ratepayers to allow my name to go before  you, and am deeply impressed with the honor  and confidence expressed, but only on the present occasion have I felt I could honestly give the  . necessary time to fittingly represent you. .1- ask  the liberty of stating two reasons why you should  vote for me.  1.- I believe in the future greatness of the City  of Vancouver, and it is my ambition to contribute  a share towards making her Civic Government  second to none.  2. My business and home has been in the  Ward for years, and "your interests are my interests.  1 "Should you endorse my candidature, lean as- -  sure you I will appreciate it, and J trust the confidence thus expressed shall not be misplaced-   I  will, if elected, use my influence to bring about  the following improvements:  1. A strictly business administration in the  City hall. , ��������� ,  2. A reform in the Engineering Department. "  3. A Board of Control, together with tie pres-    ,  ent Civic Government.  i. Cheaper Water and no water meter rent  to benefit residents and factories.  5. I am in favor of an Eight Hour Day and  fair wages for City Workmen.  6. A City Hall to be built on the present site.  7. Abolition of the Segregated area.  8. Policeman's Holiday one day per week.  Ap^rt from these matters mentioned I shall be  ��������� willing-at all-times to lend roy-assistab.ee to any--4 ������������������-  cause which will tend towards making a happy,  prosperous, contented people and a higher standard of citizenship.       \     (J  I therefore again solicit your vote and influence.

A by-law to provide for the raising  at $25,000 in connection with the purchase was also presented to the council and given its three readings.  The council decided to give the B. C.  B.

The industries and transportation  committee was authorized to take up  the matter* of deciding^what inducements could be. held out to Industries  that would locate in North Vancouver.  The councillor, in presenting the motion, was of the opinion that exemption of taxation and free water were  two inducements that could be offered.

It Is reported that four thousand acres  were staked during the latter part of  last week. Applications were filed  with the Government at Victoria. Associated with the venture are: A. E.  Whieldon, Frank E. Groffman, R. V.  Archibald and A. J. Nicholl, who have  formed a syndicate and will install a  boring machine to tap,the parent reservoir. The oil so far has been found  only In seepage.  Mr. Whieldon first noticed the seepage of oil some two months ago on  District Lot 815. It was around 27th  Street and half a mile back from the  shore. He spent some time, in tracing  back the' seepage and- finally located  what he thought to be the spot where  it came up from the ground some distance back on the mountain side.  A dam was placed across a small  creek and the oil came up to the surface in globules: Quantities of gas  were also noticed. The oil was collected v from the surface of the pond  formed by the dam and samples have  been sent to the Department of Mines  at Victoria and also to the Geological  Survey at Ottawa. , Prior to forwarding the Bamples, however, Steps were  taken to acquire as much of the surrounding land as possible and some  two months have elapsed since the  original discovery.  Under the. provincial law, land  granted by the.Crown since 1896 does  hot Include the mineral rights. Holly-  burn was staked in 1872, so that the  property-owners there have the mineral rights, including the district Lot 815  where   the' original   discovery   was  made.  But there is a vast extent of property in and around the district which  is supposed to come within the oil-  bearing zone and some 4,000 acres altogether has been staked for the oil,  notwithstanding that it is privately  owned.  - j-, -  Friday, January 2,1914  Virgin, South Hill.

A Captivating Story of Love and Mystery  Be sure to get the first installment  V'  4',&  tttlast week's "Western Cal,l" I considered, at  v-ijhbriLrange, the above subject, and, in the end,  landed with a pair of powerful world eombina-  i iipi&, having Britain, United States and Japan,  vwith some minor states on one side, and almost  ��������� all Europe and much of Asia with North Africa  on the other side���������I asked the question: "And  What Then J"' *  Here, then; is where I venture to take up the  topic, though it is -one of vast and far-reacbing  importance. The beginning of my last, started  out with the Democraoy of the Age. As a contrast, I begin this endeavor with the- opposite  idea, notion, or pfineiple. It may be called Autocracy, Oligarchy, Aristocracy, or Kaiseric  Tyranny, using the word "tyranny".' in the old  Greek sense.  While what I said last week about the tremendous sweep of .Democracy is true, it is in like  manner true when I affirm that the Autocratic, or  better the Oligarchic, spirit and rule are more  powerfully effective today than at any previous  time in human history. Now let me give a few  hasty proofs of this. In British' Columbia, where  we are wonderfully democratic, we have a strong  provincial government, ruled by one' or two men.  This we all know full well. The Premier, Sir  Richard McBride and the Honourable Attorney-  General are the government and parliament in  effect. What all know, I need not-argue about.  And if I speak truth, it follows that British Columbia is not a Democracy, but an Oligarchy, if  hot1 an Autocracy, as many people believe. ���������  Now let us look at Old Britain and see what wef,'  may. We behold Premier Asquith, Lord Chutoh-Jj  ill, Earl Grey, Lloyd-George, Redmond and T.-j*'  O'Connor the de facto government., There is no  escape from this. Apd we also are fairly sure  that three of these men could be eliminated, and  the power of the balance would be increased but  little.  Here, then, we find not a Democracy, but an  Oligarchy possessing tremendous legislative, national and international power.   The masses may  imagine and claim that they rule the Empire, but*  they "imagine a vain thing."  Again, and lastly, let us look at Germany. The  inner Council of State, including the Kaiser/ the  Premier, the Foreign Secretary, and a few military giants make or represent the actual government and control of that mighty Empire. This,  then, is the rule of the Oligarchy and not of the  Democracy.  But some men would answer me and say that  the Socialists of Germany, and of Britain are  rapidly increasing their numbers, and will soon  be able to change these matters,' so that the democratic principle will manifest itself more clearly.  Very good. Let us see a minute or two just w^at  lies in such an answer. We shall look at it in  two ways, Janus-like. Let it be known, at this  moment, in Germany; that in spite of the radical-  and moderate claims and teaohingjrf Socialism, A  the Socialistic leaders are powerfully aiding and  abetting the Kaiser and his Oligarchy in passing  all the naval and militaryshilla as fast as they  are presented to the parliament and public. By  this we see that it is but a simple matter to arrange the combination. The astute Kaiser and  his confidential manipulators go to work and secure two or three Socialistic leaders, and all those  of the Imperial spirit. This done, all is done in  this regard. These leading Socialists" are added  to the other few co-operating with the Kaiser:  They pass all bills of a MARTIAL sort without a  shriig of the shoulders, and aid in the mighty  work undertaken long since by the Military  Oligarchy of Germany, viz. to crush the British  Empire Their ery and motto are Delenda est  Britannia. The German democracy is manipulated by, and helpless in the hands of the ol-^  "igarcky^ ^-���������������������������-- ^~^~^r ..^-^���������..,;^.^.^^-^w.  Some may sav. O yes, but go to a Republic. ������  where the Democracy is in control.' We shall go  to France and see what is history.. Here a little  while ago one of the most powerful and representative men of the Labor ranks made such  headway as to land in the position of a Cabinet  Minister of the most influential sort. And then  what occurred*? Why, he simply went to work  heart and soul in, harmony with the martial spirit  of the nation, He, found his labor friends making  strong protest" against his course. Ere long; a  time of test came. A strike took place which  tried his mettle. He seized the reins in a strong  grasp and broke the strike more quiekly perhaps  than any previous extensive strike had been  broken. He saw the situation, acted, defied the  democracy, adopted the autocratic, or oligarchic  method, and succeeded.  Once more, and I pass on to another phase.  .Look at the most powerful organization, and  farthest reaching human-mechanical machine in  the history of mankind. I mean the Roman  Catholie Church. The democratic spirit here does  not exist. It is an Autocracy of the most perfect  and absolute character. Hundreds of millions of  human souls bow down in sudden and ready sub-.  mission and obedience to the*command of the  Vatican. . . . Now for one look at another  phase. I said there, were two aspects to be examined. Let us look into the camps of the Socialists, and other Labor Unions. It is well  known, at every turn, in everj/ Central Executive, in every branch, or primary lodge, court, or  camp, that one, two or three men are supreme.  Their word and will are law. So it is in. practically all fraternal societies. So it is in City  Councils. It is amusing to watch the aldermen  of this and other cities as they .imagine they are  able to work their will. But the fact is that a  very limited few do the entire work of any value.  When, the leaders, or1 bosses are not particular,  they are will to sit back-quietly and let the second-rate or third-rate men grow big'and important. This is only for a transient moment. The  real masters .hold the lines and pull up short  when necessary. As a rule, one or two not in  sight, and not the elected representatives of the  people, have a greater influence than the noisy  aldermen, or parliamentarians. In some cases  " these silent but powerful factors are paid officials,  and are heads of departments.  My object for taking time to bring these observations and facts into word expression is to  make my readers realize that in the midst of an  assertive democratic age the few actually rule.  And generally speaking this is the rule of two,  three, or four. Seldom one alone is the real ruler,  even if in British Columbia this has happened at  times.   Now what more on this point!  It is this. From time immorial the two spirits  have striven, antagonized, mastered in part by  turns; and this, just because it is impossible to  have ft otherwise. It is the strife between; eold;  and heat; between loye and hata^dbetyeifr wealth  and poverty:' the ins and outs J winter, end summer: perihelion and aphejwm:i ;pej^gee;ai^;e|>a-  gee: life, and death. And it .will never, because it  cannot, change permanently. Ai surely as winter is victor today so surely will summer be victor tomorrow. Up and down are eternal. The  periodicity, or swing of the pendulum is eternal  and universal. This is true in nature, nations,  communities, families, and in the organic structure of the individual, as well as in the struggle  of the human mind between faith and doubt.  Theism and atheism are antipodes, or may be  called permanent anthises one of the other.  I must stop here because of space limitations.  But in another I may try and put the foundation  principles of these two articles in a third, and. in  so doing, attempt the true philosophical and BE-  ;LIGIOlTS SETTING thereof,_ y������  V     <    (Trot E.

Lee Building,  Broadway and Main  To the Editor of the Western Call  Sir���������As a candidate for the Reeve-  ship of South Vancouver, I have been  especially interested, and somewhat  amused, at the - rather weak-kneed  propaganda for incorporation which is  being presented to the ratepayers and  citizens at large throughout the municipality. \  Before attempting to analyze the various reasons for incorporation ,as set  forth by the committee, I would respectfully Invite the ratepayers to take  cognizance of the fact���������and fact it is  as truly as the sun shines���������that an Incorporation by law coming at this time  is a scheme of ttie old council, now on  its last legs, to pervert the minds and  intelligence of prospective voters, thus  giving them a false sense of security,  and by a sort of hypnotic suggestion,  as it were, induce them to vote in  favor of incorporation. I appeal to the  fair-minded ^citizens of South Vancouver not to be hoodwinked by any such  ruso on the part of the council.  With the reasons fo^incorporatloe  as outlined in the Province on Decern  ber 19th, stand investigation? Most  decidedly" not, Let us proceed to find  out, taking them in order:  1. No increase of expenditure. Is  caused by incorporation. This'; is  manifest from their point of view, .he-  cause when a man. has no money,,he  can't spend any. But, to he serious:  Assuming for the sake of argument  that the municipality Is in a good financial condition, which it is not, how" can  such improvements as street paving,  especially creosoted block paving, the  wholesale purchase of Industrial sites,  the elaboration of the fire system, the  establishing of electric lights and gas  plants, to say nothing of the sewerage  and water systems, I say, how can all  these be initiated without increased expenditure? It is not consistent for a  council to undertake such a collossal  scheme of improvements andnot ij*-  crease the expenditure.  2. No department will be required  other than *hoBe now operated. Granted. But each department will have to  be elaborated until th patience of the  already burdened ratepayer is taxed  beyond endurance.  3. There will be no increase of taxation because of Incorporation. How  reassuring h Look -^tbe matter square  in the face, gentlemen, and tell me  whether you do not demand a reduction in taxes Instead of a promise that  they will not go higher? f.,:  Public sentiment in this matter is  already at the breaking point. More-,  over ,lt always takes more to run a  city than it does a municipality, which  is situated as South Vancouver, adjoining Vancouver City.  The strongest argument against Incorporation is the question of govern-,  ment grants towards permanent paving  of trunk roads or schools, etc., which  would immediately cease. This is  based on a reply to a letter recently  addressed to the Provincial Secretary,  the Hon. Dr. H. B.Young. Our yearly  grant to schools alone amounts to  875,000.  I am not in favor of remaining a  municipality, but I do say that incorporation would put us in a bad plight.  Think of the working men in South  Vancouver who are employed in the  city. If we were incorporated, Vancouver would certainly discriminate  against, us, and where then would the  o't'zens-lobk for employment? It must  perforce be a long time before South  Vancouver would have Industries to  employ those who represent the skilled  and unskilled labor of the municipality.  A earn I say that if' incorporation caries and South Vancouver Is obliged  to initiate all the internal improvements and accessories that go to make  nn'Va city by itself, taxation, by the  very nature of things, must increase.  4. Cities have abetter standing than  r*vVnidealities on the financial markets  of the world.   It goes without saying  that a city without sewerage or adequate water supply, with inadequate  police and fire protection, without decent streets and without industries;  in short, a city that lacks all the attrl-  butes that go to make .for prestige on  the financial market, is seriously handicapped and would certainly not have  a better standing than the present  municipality. If instead of incorporation, we were annexed to the city of  Vancouver, our financial standing  standing would be immeasurably superior to any city adjoining Vancouver.  5. As a city, South Vancouver would  be in a better position to attract the  attention of manufactories and * commercial houses. Why so? Do you  think for a minute that commercial  Interests are concerned with incorporation? Could we as an incorporated  city offer Industrial sites any cheaper  or hold out any better inducement to  the manufacturer? It is absurd on the  face of it, and the lamest argument in  the series. People of the outside  world do not think of South Vancouver  as a city, but as a part of Vancouver.  6. Incorporation will give South Vancouver greater powers of internal development and additional representation in the Dominion and Porvlnclal  Parliaments., This if the whole criw  of our present reeve's ambition. The.  dream of riding In a chair car to Parliament looms as a bright'star in the  political horizon. How could a man  be entrusted to help guide the ship if  state if he is unable to control successfully the civic affairs of bis own  municipality? I cannot see wherein  redistribution would deal more generously with South Vancouver as an incorporated city than it would as a part  of greater Vancouver under annexation. As for Internal developments  being helped by Incorporation,, gentlemen, it will simply mean a few extra  drops of blood from the already depleted' circulation of the burdened  taxpayer.  7. Incorporation is the first step  towards annexation with Vancouver.  This is a misprint It .should have  been last instead of first step. 'No  man is so dense that' he cannot see  that incorporation would delay annexation. The Government has promised  annexation when the municipalities  are ready to come in together. Point  Grey is seeking annexation; South  Vancouver has already declared in  favor of annexation, and It only requires a.little persuasion on the part  of Burnaby to effect the deal. Now if  Souht Vancouver starts incorporating,  Ib it not pulling away from the main  issue? It means the death knell of  annexation for many years to come.  Gentlemen, do not be fooled. The  council is presenting this bylaw to  feel out the public. If the bylaw is  defeated, the odds are overwhelmingly  against their re-election. So they say  we will spring this on the public, and  if it carries, we will all run, and If not,  we mav consider discretion the better  part of valor, and retire from the contest, v  ��������� ��������� - '        -���������'���������'���������;���������        ���������    ,  As a last gasp, I notice a few of our  delinquent, councillors are advocating  the abolition of the ward system.  Ratepayers, beware! This is an ill-  advised scheme of such men as.ithe  re^respntative of Ward II., whose  vitiated hot air and selfish manipula-  t.^n of civic affairs, of which a section  if 9<Hh Avenue stands as a monument  w?th t\vo liphts, have lost him the opportunity of re-election in this ward,  but who seeks to prey upon the innocence of those beyond his immediate  jurisdiction and demand representation  by appealing to the publtc at large. I  pnrwil to the taxpayers as men of  honor, principle and honesty to exer-  ������*se their franchise against these two  by-laws, which, as an election scheme,  if carried to a successful issue, would  prohibit the good government of the  municipality.���������Yours truly,  J. C.  McARTHTJR.  "\  I have served the Municipality as Reeve for  the past two years, and I am sure that all will  agree they have been the most strenuous years,  possibly, in the history, of our Municipality.  Early in 1912, we were aware of the fact that the  financial situation was taking a downward trend,  but no one expected to see it come to the crisis  which it has during 1913. I feel that during these  two years that the Municipality has been guided  along in the best possible way considering the financial condition. It is not necessary for me to  say that the financial condition was not a local  matter, yet some seem to, criticize me as though I  were responsible for this money tightness. It is a .  well-known fact that not only Canada, but practically all over the world, this same stringency  was very keenly felt. I do not attempt to say  that South Vancouver bonds will sell today as  they would two years ago, but is not this the case  with every Municipality in the Dominion of Canada? Is it not a fact that our different Provincial. Governments, as well as the Dominion Government,, are i forced 'to sell their bonds at a reduced price?  Early in 1912, we were faced with an investigation, which, though criticized in some quarters,  , I believe that the large majority are satisfied that  it has gone a great way towards putting us on a  better footing as a Municipality. In this matter  I only endeavored to do my duty as it presented  itself to me.  The Municipality was faced with the litigation  of the Anderson _Tax Sale, which, through no  fault of mine or my Council, was, nevertheless, a  severe blow to the. Municipality.. I am pleased  .to note that the whole matter of tax.' sales is  placed in a very different light owing to the '  legislation passed at the last sittting of'the legislature, s  Early in 1913 the Council along with the Council of Vancouver city, went to, the Government petitioning them to pass a bill for the annexation  of South Vancouver to the city. You know the  outcome.  We must turn our attention to sewering the  Municipality. . This should be done in the most  careful manner possible, but we will be forced to  vote money for the construction of lateral sewers.  \ A certain amount of work will, no doubt, be undertaken, and is being undertaken on the local  improvement system, for I have always been  very much in favor of permanent work.  I am in favor of doing everything possible to  strengthen our fire department. It is one of the  most necessary thing's in a growing Municipality  ���������protection against the possibility of .fire.  We must. continue our endeavors along the  lines of   securing   a   permanent water.supply.  Very much has been accomplished during the past,  two yeaW regarding this. most\yi^ necessity. ;.  StM much remains to bVcTone;;; ,&���������>. v &;������.'": '-  ,- * l favorlthV encouragement of industries in  our Municipality. Possibly not enough attention  has been.given to'this4n the nast, but something  should be done to encourage industries in order  to give work to our citizens. It is not a compliment to South Vancouver that its citizens must  seek employment in the City of Vancouver or  elsewhere, neither does it assist in building up  our Municipality. I would suggest that, a small  area, at least, of industrial property be purchased^  more particularly along the Fraser River, to be  offered to intending manufacturers at a nominal  rental. ,  ,  I would also favor the erecting at the earliest  possible date of an electrie_plant_for the supply- _  mg of cheaper light in our Municipality, as well  as cheaper power, which could be sold to said  manufacturers at the lowest possible price. I  would favor selling water for this purpose at the  lowest possible price. In fact I favor anything  reasonable, that would encourage industries. I  have always been and I hope always will, be in  favor of Municipal ownership of our public utilities. It is a well-known fact that cities and  Municipalities owning these derive from them a  very large source of their revenue, thus preventing the increase of taxes on our property, which  , is never viewed with favor by the property owners. I realize that we must move carefully along  these lines owing to the financial condition, but.  no Municipality should rush. recklessly, even in  good times, into matters of this kind, but the  time is come when we must give them serious  consideration.  In closing I wish to say that if returned for the year 1914, I will, as in the past,  endeavor to serve the best interests of all, always  endeavoring to uphold the credit and dignity of  our Municipality.  REEVS J. A. KERR  The popular Reeve of South Vancouver fully anticipates  re-election for 1914. Level headed electors do not charge  J. A. Kerr's administration with the present financial depression and the many misfortunes that have laid a paralyzing  hand upon South' Vancouver during the last few years.  Circumstances arise that no mortal can control. "Hard  times" are world wide, and not peculiar to Vancouver.  Mr. Kerr is possessed of many qualities thatappeal to an  intelligent electorate, and the vigor of manhood adds to^ his acceptability. ;.'.: His plans for the future of South Vancouver are  laid deep and broad and reflect credit to his name. Wifeh  three candidates in the field it would be difficult to predict  with certainty the outcome bfythe contest. Probably his  strongest opponent is J. C. McArthur, whose views are at variance with Reeve Kerr's on several points, particularly  Incorporation vs. Annexation.  The election will be viewed with interest by Greater Vancouver as success or failure may hang upon the electors'  decision. : "  John Graham has been in. Vancouver fourteen  years. He has been a resident of Ward One, South  Vancouver, for seven years and is a very successful  bnsiness man.
