Array Published in the Interests of Greater Vancouver.  VOLUME III  H. K. Stevens, M.P., EpiTOR-in-CMef  VANe^UVER/BiuTi^  mmmmmmmmm  =a  It E, ELECTRIC AND  ITS_CAR SHORTAGE  la carefully worded article in the daily press  the B. C Electric seek to give the public the impression that they find it difficult to get cars.  There is an old saying that "no one is so blind as  the man who won't see/' That is just the case  with the B. C. Electric. They do not try to get  can, and we repeat what we said last week that  the real reason why the B. C. Electric do not put  on more cars is because they are selling so much  power commercially that they have not enough  to run their cars and light the city properly..;  The B. C. Electric arc exporting power to Blain,  "Wash. They are endeavoring to get control of  ������very possible industry, we are credibly informed,  that they even go to the extent of canvassing from  house to house seeking to induce unwary housewives to sign contracts not to buy power from  any other company^. All this in a mad effort to  "head off" the Western Canada Power Company,  who have their plant almost ready to deliver  power and light.  Again, permit us to remind Mr. Sperling of his  solemn promise to the City Council to have 90  cars on by June. He has only secured about 30  in the whole year and he can get all he wants.  Again we repeat it is not lack of cars, or ability  to get them, but lack of power for reasons above  stated. .  ,  The E.* C. Electric are playing a dog in the  manger game and it is about time the people  woke up and gave some attention to their rights.  All that is required is that this arrogant company  lie turned down a few times to teach it ordinary  courtesy and business etiquette.  SECOND NABBOW8 BBIDOE.  Suggestions have been made again that, in  place of a bridge at Second Narrows, a solid causeway be constructed with a lock.%  This-would have same distinct advantages over  [a bridge���������it would make the main harbor practi-  jcaUy still water and almost abolish the current  [at the First Narrows.   It would also make the  inner harbor (above the lock) a,fresh water har-  [bor, a matter of supreme importance���������making it  (possible to hold sawlogs for many years without  Pfear of toredo, and, also, will act favorably in  leaning the bottoms of Bhips.  It will -provide for  much better transportation facilities than   the  bridge to North Vancouver, as the bridge only  provides one railway track, which will not be  Very satisfactory.   Those opposed to this move  contend that the lock would cost an enormous sura  owing to the poor foundation, except at great  depth.. |t is expected that Mr. Swan will discuss  the engineering problem with Sir John Wolfe-  Barry,and if they think favorably of it that some  action may be taken.    It is not the'intention  to in any way delay the construction of whatever  means of transportation may be chosen, but to  get the most suitable.   If the engineering difficulties are not insuperable or the cost too great there  can be little doubt as to the advantage of a solid  causeway.   -    WATER PIPES.  The City Council gave an order for street pipe  to an old country firm for $75,000.00; a local'firm  put in a bid of $77,000.00 (MacDonald, Godson  Co;), the difference being two per cent. Some  of the aldermen thought it advisable to give the  contract to the local firm, even at the higher price,  claiming that local industry should be patronized.  Those opposed to this stand contended that the  lowest tenderer should always get the order.  In our opinion the local industry should be favored to this small extent, viz., two per cent. We  do not give any inducements to industries ito locate here and the least we can do is to encourage  them by giving them some slight advantage, and  surely two per cent is not too much to ask. We  need interests.of this kind here and must give  some inducement.  AN EXOELU5NT THOUGHT.  I  ])  I remembered some sentences of Ruskin 'a that  'had been curiously beautiful to me, just from the  fact they told; and how the fact interpreted itself.   He explains to us how one of the ideas of  rchitecture grew, from observing the outline left,  hen the rose, or the trefoil, or whatever was  he first traced for carving, had been cut and  aken away.   That which was left was as beauti-  ul as the central design.    So God shapes the  ower of beauty in us, and seems perhaps only  'to reveal its glory by a taking away.    But He  ueeg how fair in the line stands the outline that is  left; how the tender curves bend and cling about  all emptiness, and declare in themselves a wonderful,  essential  grace.    He makes that which  remains by the same stroke which separates and  removes; and so He chisels and thins and glorifies  Is, until in the immortal aspects in which we  shall stand before Him, only so much of the mere  form of being shall remain as shall make it possible for us to hold these thoughts of His will  with which He has been, by depriving us, filling  Mrs. A.

We were correct. Mayor Taylor did not attend a single meeting of the  joint committee, except for the purpose of opposing the scheme.  Mayor Taylor has not made a single practical suggestion, at any time or place,  as to how the drainage question should be solved. Mayor Taylor has never once  proposed any plan, called any meeting, taken any steps to properly discuss the  problem.  He has always acted"dog in the manger,"���������had no scheme of his ow*n, and  childishly and jealously opposed that originated by others.  Mayor Taylor says he made th$s scheme a plank in his platform���������we reply, He  did not, and challenge him to prove otherwise.  FALSE CREEK.  His Worshipstakes credit for settling the False Creek question.  The following is an extract from his reported speech in his own paper, the  World, Dec 29, 19iQ.  He had been criticised, said the Mayor, re the False Creek agreement.  Let  them (the critics) remember that the Great Northern had the big end of the  stick.  It was a give and take agreement.  "There is now very little to be done  in the matter," said the Mayor, "except a few legal technicalities, and before  theend of'the yearforwMchtheagreement was entered (June 27, 1911) you  will find thai me Great Northern will have begun their work in the basin.  Let us examine this.  This was stated by Mayor Taylor last year, twelve months  ago, and nothing yet done;   He will probably say that the Great Northern has driv-  , en some piles. Yes, that is true, but it was worse than nothing.  But what has Taylor done?   He has openly opposed every effort to make the Great Northern get  busy, or else refrained from carrying out the mandates of the council.   He has  been Mayor for 18 months since the agreement was passed���������he promised the people'  to have the company busy in 90 days, and again we ask, what has he done to carry  out that promise f   Absolutely nothing.   He has not, by word or action, ever supported an attempt to force the Great Northern to carry out its agreement. He has  repeatedly protected them, and very frequently in his paper, the World, boosted  for them (perfectly legitimate) but in no single, remote instance has he sought to  advance the people's interests.  Again we challenge production of facts in contradiction.  We interject here the statement that it is the duty of the Mayor of a city to see  that civic agreements are fulfilled, as well as promises kept. Mayor Taylor has done  neither. ' \  To refer again to the Mayor's statement #iat the agreement with the Great  Northern was *'a; give and take agreement/* In the light of subsequent facts, we  asjc His Worship to explain this statement,���������who was the giver, and who was the  taker? The city got nothing, so it could not be the city he refex's to. Who was the  party to this "give^ and take" transaction?  . B^OBGANJZATION LEGAL PEPABTMENT.  His Worship takes great credit for reorganising the Legal Department. We  agree with that claim. The credit is entirely his. The committee appointed on  this question, eighteen months ago, took Mayor Taylor's recommendation that the  present incumbent be appointed. None but he had ever seen the new appointee,  who was in the east at the time, so His Worship can justly claim full credit for giving to the city a legal department that is the laughing stock oi the city; a veritable  We do not care to unkindly criticize the civic departments and would willingly  leave this "legal department" to the incoming council, but the Mayor's unchallenged boast demands the truth. As an advisor to the council the opinions of the Mayor's pet solicitor are absolutely valueless. They are about as obtuse as they possibly  can be, and the department would again have been reorganized, had not the aldermen been somewhat ashamed to acknowledge how they had been hoaxed.  The only reorganization which has been done is in the salary, which was raised  to $6000.00. If any department is in need of the pruning hook it is the legal department. . "    -  DAY LABOR ON CIVIC WORK.  Last year Mayor Taylor made "day labor on civic work" a plank in his platform. He had Robt. MacPherson as chairman of the Board of Works, a man who  is devoted to the Mayor's interests, yet not a word was breathed by the Mayor, or  the chairman of the Board of Works, about "Day Labor." There were aldermen  on the council who had advocated it, but not a word from the Mayor this whole  year. Again we ask for facts to contradict this statement. Further he is now  seeking to bribe the civic employees by promising them $3.00 per day. Over ninety  per cent of the men working for the city day work, on sewers and streets, are foreigners, most of whom have come on since Mayor Taylor has been Mayor, yet not  once has Mayor Taylor raised his voice or attempted to give civic work to our own  countrymen, yet he would give these alien American Italians $3.00 per day, simply because their votes can be secured at the city's expense.    ,  | CIVIC TELEPHONE FARCE.  We again call public attention to the Mayor's claim that he secured the right  to the city to construct its own telephone system.  This is both false and true. False in-so-far as to the claim that he was active in  securing the approval of the government, because he did nothing in that respect,  the other members of the delegation secured that right, but it is true, in that he,  the Mayor, induced the B. C. Telephone to withdraw opposition, at the expense of  an assurance that the city would not exercise the right when granted. This fact,  the Mayor himself admitted.  He played the city false in this case and subsequent occurrences prove it to  be true. After giving the B. C. Telephone the assurance above noted, His Worship supported his position by a series of subtle moves. A resolution was introduced calling for an investigation into the telephone situation in Vancouver. By  all parliamentary rules the mover should have been on the committee as chairman, but. the Mayor, in his anxiety to protect the company, entirely ignored the  mover and appointed three aldermen, known to be opposed to the objects for which  the committee was appointed. These gentlemen were perfectly honest in their  views, but absolutely one-sided, and the result was a foregone conclusion. .  Then again the Mayor has not on any occasion suggested in any way that we  have our own telephone system. He has assiduously opposed every effort to use  the so-called right to own our own telephone system.  We challenge him to produce  (Continued on Pag* S)  Mil ������ii������ UMI IHII I I I'ltMII ���������^���������^���������������������������^������������������^.t lllllllillX  ���������i������i������i������i������ii������i#>������i������*������>������*������i������<������i������i*r������i������i������������  ���������������  a >  Oll|0 aJprminalOIitg  flr*00, lltmitrtl  Extends their But Hashes  for the Health and Happiness  of their Friends and Patrons  during 191$, and Gratefully  Acknowledge ail Favors, Real  and Contemplated.  1 ..-  MmtlMHtMMIMIIIHIIHIMlUIH <  GREAT NORTHERN AGAIN  AFTER DREDGE MASTODON  The Great Northern Railway Company are le������v-~  ing no stone unturned in their efforts to seetkre  the use of the Government Dredge Mastodon for  their private works. They have wired or Written  to numerous Cabinet Ministers and public offiemlt  at Ottawa; they have sought the assistance of the  Provincial Government and the City Counefl, but  their requests have all been referred to the loefl  member, H. H. Stevens, who has positively refused  to sanction the diversion of the dredge from the  Work at the first Narrows:  This dredge was built to do the work in the  first Narrows and has been on the Coast for about *  a year, but by political pull she Was allowed, by  the Ute administration, to do an uU<^tssMes������.  job, at the cost of about'450,000.00 to the public,  at Alberai, . ' -1  '-  .."    *������  . J?*? widening of the first Narrows from about  500 feet to 1200 feet is so absolute necessity and  will require, with one shift, about tour years to  complete. It is a stupendous undertaking. Already about a year has been lost. During the election Mr. Stevens promised that he would do his  best to get the dredge started on this important  work as soon as possible. He succeeded in doing  so, but for the part month the Great Northern  and other companies have been using every known  political influence to get the dredge, and would/  have succeeded only for* the flat refusal of, Jffe'  Stevens. -     '    7  The grounds of refusal are that the public interests roust take priority over private interests,  and, as the dredge was built for the Narrows'  work, that is the place where she should be employed. Further, that as the Panama Canal will  be opened in a couple of years, it is imperative that  everything possible should'-be doge to get ready  for the increased trade resulting. ^  Mr.'Stevens has also succeeded in getting a  double shift on the dredge, which will cut the  time"for theaccomplishmentof the'"work-m-hialfr-5'  The second crew is not yet at work, but as soon  as the necessary funds are appropriated, it will  commence.  The Great Northern might as well cease their  efforts as the policy is definite and final, viz: file  Dredge Mastodon to be kept in the Fn*tt Narrows  until the work is done.

"Pretty near is not near enough. It is the  'pretty near' that builds Austen (Pennsylvania)  dams and similar engineering failures. It is  'near enough' that is killing and maiming Canadians every day. The engineer must be accurate." So said the Honorable Mr. Justice Riddell  at the Engineers' Club, Toronto. Forty-four dollars per minute represents the fire waste in Canada this year; 36,710 persons were killed and injured in railway and industrial accidents in four  years in Canada, an average of 25 persons a day.

BEATTIE  Auctioneer,  Appraiser and Notary Public for British Columbia  General Ileal Estate, Mining Broker, Financial Agent  Germany vs. Great Britain  Prof. E. Odium, HUl, B.Sc.  Is* Germany to blame.in her insistent demand  for more territory? Is her army and navy increase a voluntary aet ������a her part, or is it the  result of dire necessity! Is Germany to be condemned for building Dreadnoughts with feverish  haste, and at enormous expense in time of peace?  To these questions my answer is, that she is not  to blame. She has no choice. She must extend  her territory, or gradually drop back to second  and then to third place among the nations. The  Hague Peace Tribunal, Carnegie's nonsensical expressions on behalf of peace, And the tiresome  writings of scores of prominent journalists, all fail  to reach the mark.  These would-be teachers and preachers of  peace go on the supposition that the nations of  the earth can, by arrangement, fix permanently  their national areas and boundary lines.  Let me say that this is impossible. It has  never been done in the history of the world. It  has never been done in the history of a single nation. It never will be done in the future* while  there are several nations engaged in the individual and national struggles enforced by nature upon  them. Hence the men, like Mr. Carnegie, and  those who talk and write along his lines on this  question, are either ignorant or dishonest.  - Now, I am safe in saying that the bulk of  the rank and file of the peace-at-any-price promoters, are men and women who take the Scriptures aa their guide. If so, they insult the Author  of these very Scriptures by pretending Jhat peace  is possible by the means and along the lines proposed. The Scriptures as well-as common sense,  and the unmistakable voice of nature and necessity, speak in the clearest terms, saying that there  is not and cannot be peace for a long period yet.  _��������� The Scriptures announce wars of proportions,  numbers engaged, calamitous results and stupendous changes, far beyond anything of past history.  Thus then, men and women pretend that they  have the teaching of Scriptures to aid them in demanding and working for an unreasonable and  impossible proposition. ( C  ; The wars of the future, foretold in the Scriptures, will come to pass, or the Scriptures are not  true. If these yrara of the -future, foretold by  prophets, are not coming, then the prophets were  ignorant or wilful liars, ^e may as. well talk  plainly;    ;  I now say that these peace-loving folk have  failed to learn from history, from the Bible, from  the trend of current events, from the manifest  necessities of the times, and f roim the inexorable  laws of nature. These laws are universal and  /eternal' ..-.'������������������.  From this we may be the better able to examine into the real position-and movements of  Germany. It matters little whether we recall her  war with Austria in 1866, or France in 1870, or  China and, the Morocco affair in later times. It  matters not whether we look at the long line of  underground diplomacy with* Turkey from the  days of Disraeli, Gladstone and Lord Salisbury;  or the scheming in Western Asia and Palestine;  or whether we look; at the tremendous pressure exerted to construct a railway from the Mediterranean Sea to the head of the Persian Gulf, to  wards whieh both Germany and Russia have been  looking and striving for many years. I say it  matters not which of these and other problems we  look at, we will see at the bottom the one simple"  cause of all these national and international  phenomena. German necessity forces her to move  outward, in order,to save her full-grown nationhood.  She must have food for her people. To get  food, her people must have work. To find work  there must be factories. To maintain factories  there must be markets. These markets must be  so related to Germany that they will most surely  continue to take her goods at such prices as will  keep the whole complex system going, without  starving her'millions. Now, we know that Germany has outgrown her home hive. Her sons and  daughters have, for long decades, been running  away from her shores in very large numbers.  And in their migrations from Fatherland they  have been lost to the Home-land, because they  have had to go to other countries and there become citizens.  To keep her children within her fold she must  have other lands under her flag and government.  To do this there are only two plans that can be  adopted. She must use diplomacy as in the  Agadir case, or fight as in the case oi France in  1870. But in diplomacy she is forced to have  both naval apd martial preparedness, or her attempts at diplomacy would be derided. Now,  wisely, and of necessity, she builds dreadnoughts,  cruisers, torpedo boats, destroyers and air ships,  and does every other thing which she deems  necessary to enable her to extend her dominions.  This, then, is the real struggle. ��������� Let Mr. Carnegie  show that there is a way by which Germany can  extend her territories and not go to war sooner  or later, and he will accomplish something of  value. But any scheme that he and his peace coworkers propose must absolutely make provision'  for the steady and rapid expansion of Germany. ������������������  But this is not all. In twenty-five of fifty  years, both the BritishEmpire and the United  States will'''-be forced to plan for much greater  areas. Already the United States people are migrating by scores of thousands annually because  of internal, increasin g home-pressure. Long since,  this has come to England, Scotland, Wales and  Ireland; and is very close at hand with New Zealand and Tasmania.  Now we know, or ought to know, that nations  will not die voluntarily. Necessity knows no law,  hot even the law of peace/ Hence when the pinch  of international pressure comes, then there is only  one plan of settlement left. And that is war,  bloody war, hellish war  I say then, that this is the prospect, and  never can or will be evaded until a new vision  comes to mankind, until a new plan be adopted,  until other than the present economies'prevail,  and until there is but one and only one supreme  ruling power on this earth.  In this connection I would urge the peace-  lovers to read the statements of Victor Hugo, of  Vernadsky, of Dr. Geffcken, and the prophetic  Scriptures on this question.

Odium's article on Koraan-  Izing practices in extreme high church  clrcleB of the Church of England, betrays the uBual want of comprehension  of high church doctrine and ritual to  which we are accustomed, when persons competent to deal-with secular  matters appertaining to Protestantism  wade out beyond their depth. To put  the Archbishop of Canterbury after  His Grace of York, and to write of  the Bishop of Lambeth (a prelate who  is non-existent) is to betray'want of  knowledge of things familiar to. most  persons, and cause feelings of scepticism as to the accuracy of the many  -wild statements contained in the article generally.  The professor is strong on the  church of his forefathers, and yet runs  a tilt against the high church party  because they conform to their said  forefathers' usuage, and refuse to dub  themselves Protestants, adhering to  the time-honored name of Catholics.  Now, it is notorious that the Second  Prayer Book of Edward VI. was a com_-  promise to extreme Puritan susceptibilities, and yet although the low  church party had the virtual control  of this revision and had the term Protestant buzzing in their ears, they excluded it entirely from the Prayer  Book, recognizing that they were true  Catholics, and reciting daily their belief, "I believe in the holy Catholic  church."  Protestant is a German word used  on a particular occasion and refers, to  members of the Lutheran church. So  far from the high church party playing into the hands of Roman Catholicism, it is time that your readers realized that it is those who glory in the  name���������political in origin���������of Protestants, who are really helping Rome all  along the line; for the Roman church  loves to appropriate the title of Catholic all to herself, and In all the newspapers throughout the Dominion Tieads,  her news columns with "Catholic,"  not "Roman  Catholic Matters."  Catholic means universal. Protestant means the dissent of a minority  from the proceedings of a majority,  and is the most sectarian term in existence. |  It would be interesting to have chapter and verse from 'Professor Odium  .,. ���������     l  as to the acceptance of those belonging to what*he terms "the High Anglican church" of the Pope of Rome as  their spiritual father; such charges  should not appear in print without  means of verification.  I'inally, why "the grand, old, national, apostolic Anglican church?" I am  afraid.I do not understand, for if it is  old and national, it must be Catholic!  NOTE.���������The PorteBtant party were  so called from protesting against a  decree of Charles V. and the Diet of  Spires, and is distinctly a German  name, rightly pertaining to the members of the Lutheran church.  A  BIRD'S  GRIEF.  SCIENCE AND PROGRE88.  Dogs have been known to die of  grief at the grave of their master;  and it was supposed that such affection was possible only to this faithful companion of man. It would seem,  however, that birds are capable of a  similar attachment. A little child in  Jacksonville, Fla., formed a friendship  with a mocking bird. The bird had  built- a nest in an orange grove near  the piazza where the child waB accustomed to play. The child discovered the nest, and soon began to  throw crumbs on the piazza for the  bird, which, growing fearless, would  come to her feet to pick up the  crumbs.  At length the child sickened and  died. The bird missed his benefactor,  and when the corpse was lying in the  coffin, was seen to light on the window sill of the room, and sing one of  his sweetest songs.  Soon after, he was found dead on  the piazza, whether from, grief, or  from loss of his accustomed food, no  one could say. But he was-laid tenderly on the coffin of the child, and  they were buried in one grave.

The opening of the Grand T8runk  Pacific railroad to Prince Rupert will  cut 500 miles oft the route from Chi  cago to the Orient.  A new process of making flour or  meal has been patented, in which  steam is injected into a mass of cereal 4o disrupt the starch cells, after  which the mass is dried by passing it  through blasts . of air, and is' then  ground into flour or meal of any fineness.  A consular report from Japan states  that the city of Toklo will install a  complete system of modern sanitary  Bewerage before the opening of the  world's exposition, which is to commemorate the fiftieth anniversary of  the crowning of the mikado. Tokio  has a very large area in proportion  to its population, viz., about 100  square miles; hence the installation  of sewers will be an immense undertaking. The cost is estimated at from  17 to 20 million dollars.  "RELIGIOUS FREEDOM" IN JAPAN.

To-day the phrase has been written  into the constitution of the land. Less ]  than fifty years ago, if you wished to  have a free fight on the spot, without  loss of time, all that you had.to do  was to call a gentleman a "Yaso"���������  chat is to say, "Jesus." And to-day?  Admiral Uriu, who battered the fine  Russian cruiser Variag in the harbor  of Chemulpo, is a Christian; and  many other officers of the navy and  army of Japan are proud to be'called  Yaso. The editors of some of the  leading metropolitan dailies are Christian. In 1890, when the imperial diet  was convened for the first time in the  history of Japan, the house of representatives had a Christian for its  president. His majesty the emperor  contributes regularly to the funds cf  the Y.M.C.A. To-day no one can irritate a Japanese by calling him Yaso.  These, are some of the fruits of the  missionary work in Japan. Not the  fruits, however.���������Adachi Kinnosuke,  in the September Century.  Office Phone:  Seymour 94 it  Rea.

The  first step in the raising and uplifting of  this class of unhappy humanity la to  feed them, and yesterday morning  (Dec. 25th) at 12 o'clock, without any  discrimination Of class, creed or color,  six hundred of the homeless were  seeking admission to the auditorium  of the Central Mission.  - Never will the writer of this article  have the sight blotted from the tablets  of his memory, as he saw them, file into, the hail in relays and" take their  places at the tables which were loaded  down with the good things that had  been provided by many of the Christian workers and the wholesale and retail merchants from all parts of the  city who had known of the good work  done hithertofore, and had given of  their substance to carry to a successful issue the task undertaken by the  members of the Mission! and' right  nobly did the band of faithful workers  tackle what seemed a super-human  task." With the regularity of clockwork, table after table was filled by  the committee and cleared by those  who eagerly and thankfully partook of  the host of good things that were  abundantly supplied.  The dinner lasted^from 12 o'clock  until six, and we,are sure by the .remarks we heard, fully appreciated. The  auditorium was beautifully decorated  with holly "and other garlands suggestive of the season, and in fact everything was done as tar aa possible to  make the Christmas tor those partaking of the hospitality truly happy.  .While the dinner was in progress the  people of the Mission who were in attendance gave several selections, music and eolos, recitations, speeches and  songs. The singing was well rendered  by Messrs. J. M. Logan and W. B. Rob  inson, the sweet singers of the Mis  sion, and was well received. While  the music played by Miss Kinley and  the two Misses James brought to the  thoughts of many memories of borne.  The remarks-by Mr. F. Willie and Mr.  Walker were listened to with much interest, and a recitation or two by R.  Snyth, brought the entertainment to a  close, an entertainment and dinner  that will long "be remembered.  At this time a few words relative to  the Central City Mission, its aims and  objects, may not be out of place, and  we have gathered the few notes here-  ii  good work done In the old.days.  At that time a restaurant wan also  one of the features ������f the ok! Mission,  and no one went away hungry. Work  was found for the unemployed, and  with faith and prayers fhe good work  went on. Again the accommodation  was found insufficient, and those who  had been in the work from the earlieBt  inception along wtBh ethers who had  joined the faithful band, decided to  build the present Central City Mission.  With little means at their command,  but with an abiding faith in the power  of the living God, they undertook the  task. Citizens of Vancouver became  Interested in the work which was promulgated, and In the month of May of  this present year the Mission was  thrown open to the public.  Since the opening, and up to the present time of writing, the building has  accommodated over sixty thousand,  and many at the present time are turned away nightly.  ��������� The building is quiet, clean and comfortable. Lights are out at> eleven  o'clock, and since the Mission has been  opened it has been only necessary on  three occasions to have three persons  incarcerated In the city Jail. Least  my readers may form a wrong impression relative to the alms and objecta  of the Mission, I may state that One  of the main features Is at follows: To  provide- cheap rooms for: young men  who are In this city and far from home  and who wish to be away from the  many temptations that are so often  lurking in other places, and to be near  and surrounded by godly Influences.  Another feature is the providing night  after'night, for those who drift, in and  out, a cheap,, clean and comfortable  bed, also to provide for those who are  without means, and truly THEIR numbers are many.  This part of the work is looked after  by Mr. Alexander, and from what I  have seen relative to that department,  Mr. Alexander has no cinch. Mr.  Walker, the caretaker and general supervisor of the building, with a small  staff looks after the building, cavitation, heating, lighting, etc., and must  be busy from morning to night to keep  the building In such a tidy condition;  Each evening in the large auditorium  there is a religious meeting held from  eight o'clock until nine, which la addressed from time to time by the different ministers from the several  churches In the city, along with the  missionary, Mr. F. Willie.  We cannot close without a strong  appeal to the Christian citizens of Vancouver to aid this,good work. Wo believe there are many who if they will  only take the time to visit the Mission, will go away saying, "The half  was never told." The management  feel that there is much work to be  done in the upbuilding of the unfortunate ones. And yet their hands are  tied. The building is still in debt;  could that be once lifted, then more  of the real true mission work could  be accomplished. More of the poor  could be fed, clothed and their incoming and outgoing be assured.

As a matter of fact a careful Inspection of the timber along the line of  the Hudson Bay Railway made In the  years 1910 and 1911, by the FVMrestry  Branch of the Department of the Interior, shows that there is not enough  mature timber along the line of that  railway to build, the road. There are  no prairie districts of any extent along  the route, there are trees every where,  but owing to repeated Urea the forest  Is, except on the merest fraction of the  area, too small for commercial purposes and unless it can be protected  from fire until it reaches maturity,  will'never be of any use to the country. Explorations in other parts of  the northern forested districts tell the  same tale. Everywhere fire has worked havoc, and the forest la a mere  wreck of what'it might have been If  fires could be prevented. And unless  adequate measures are taken now to  protect the young and Immature forests which form the major part of the  atand, the outlook for the future It  none too good. .   sy.  If the northern toreata are^o con*  tlnue to be a permanent source of  wealth to the country, It Is absolutely  necessary that the fire ranging system  should be .extended and that proper'  methods of management of the forest  should be applied, and public education to the value of the forest is even  more necessary.  In Sweden, which has large extents  of northern forest, practically uninhabited, similar to those in northern  Canada, has about eliminated the fire  danger In such districts mainly by edu-  eating her people to tne value of the  forests.

And here In Vancouver there  are many such. One I now mention Is  the manager of the Central City Mission, P. G. Drost, one of the founders  of the same.  Four years ago he, with a few others, formed the old Mission, known as  the City Mission, on Harris street.  From its earliest inception, backed up  by tbe Spirit of God, it grew apace,  until this building was found inadequate, it being too small to accommodate those.for which it was intended.  A removal was made Just opposite to  where the new Central Mission Hall  now stands.  Alter the consolidation of a strong  Christian organization it was decided  to branch out still further in the. great  work.of uplifting and helping fallen:  humanity, and at a meeting of the com-  jmittee  it  was  recommended   that  a  | large rooming house should be fitted  j up for the accommodation of the homeless.   This was done, and the good  work went on; many souls were saved  and brought to a knowledge of Christ  and are today living testimonies of the  and standing by the noble efforts put  forward by those in charge. May they  reap abundant blessings and benefits,  and may these few lines reach some  of those who have intended to assist  but who are dilatory, and be an incentive to uuick substantial activity, and  great Bhall be the reward.

LJCENSS COMMISSIONS*.  For ttie information of any electors in Vancouver who are not  thoroughly conversant with the proceedings of the License Board  during the past year, nor acquainted with the personel of the Board,  we wish to point out that in our opinion, with all due respect to preceding boards, the hoard of 19U was probably the most satisfactory  to the great majority of citizens.  Two members of that hoard are candidates for election on Jan-  wary nth, namely, 11. S. Pyke and Pr. Patterson, and their work on  the board last year entitles.thera to the strong support of the electors  of the city. ,  ���������': While they have been just and fair toward all parties haying  dealings with the boawtythey hevs succeeded in improving very materially the regulations governing the liquor traffic. The number,of  licenses have not been increased, and although several licenses were  available according $e wor by-laws, and numerous applications for  licenses were wM&g, ibacked hy much influence, not one shop license  was issued "during tire year, and the number of hotel licenses now in  operation are less than wheto these men took their seats on the board.  Several oJ %e Jhtftel huildfiigs have been improved during the  year, arid some licenses transferred to new and up-to-date premiseu  in suitable parts of the 'less congested business area of the city. The  licenses have Wen strictly confined to the business district, as the  only hotel license south of False Creek has been forced to move to  new prenjises in the centre of the city.  Thrdtfgh foe efforts 'of these Commissioners the all-night drinking of liquors and wines in cafes and restaurants has been stopped,  and this action should "receive the approval of the great majority of  our citizens..  We believe it advisable that men who have had practical experience on the board and who have given general satisfaction, should  be electee! 'to represent the city during the present year, especially  as they have under consideration at the present time the establishment of a strictly defined license area for hotels, and the securing  of proper inspection of the liquors offered for sale to the public;  and as the new board will have to deal with the changing of the bylaws in.order to carry out the proposed amendments to the city  chapter dealing with the restaurant question, and we therefore ask  of our readers their support in securing the election of License Commissioners Pyke and Patterson.

The question of the action of  the Vancouver School Board In taking  over the instruction of tbe children ol  D. I* 801, was again brought forward,  and Superintendent Graham repotted  that It will not now be necessary for  the board to ask the city to take over  the teachers who were engaged by  South Vancouver for D. L. 301. It was,  however, decided after a short discus*  sion, to forward to the city school  trustees a claim for $1000, this being  a portion of the cost of providing educational facilities for the children of  D. L. 801 over the monthly grant of  the government, which amounts to  ���������aeo.  W. A. Bray was appointed Jsnltor of  the General Wolfe School st a salary  of t������0 a month. The question of fencing the grounds sround this school  was also discussed, and a sab-committee was appointed to go through the  tenders and award the contract for  this work. The offer of Mr. J. D. Mars.  den to assemble desks at 18c each,  was accepted.  The South Vancouver Football  League were given permission to use  the grounds of the General Wolfe  School again on condition that the  previous conditions would be rigidly  observed, the grounds being laid out  in conjunction with the principal and  the association making good any damage they may cause.  The wings of the Lord Selkirk brick  school' were insured for 180,000, with  an additional 85,000 en the furniture  and equipment.  Trustee Fleming gave ���������otlce that he  intended to resign from the board,  such resignation to cosse into effect  on Jan. li.

Pretends to Bargain for the City���������Advances Private Interests of the Bailway <jJo.  It is nearly two years ago since the "False Creek Flats" deal With the Oreat  Northern Company was under negotiation between the City and Hie. Railway  Company, and in spite of the frequent notices given in the World newspaper  "That work was about to commence," little or nothing has been done towards the  extension scheme of development by the Railway.  Mayor Taylor has stated that the Provincial Government was responsible for  the delay. This cannot be the cause as the Provincial Oovernment and the Railway Company completed their arrangements eleven months ago, which removed  thai subterfuge, y  As a matter of fact there is positively no excuse whatever why the Oreat Northern should not have had the work well under way long ago. This Company is notorious for its disregard of public convenience or public demands, and will seldom  make a move until forced to do so. '  That the City has been deceived in the bargain made, is generally accepted to  be the case.  The vote on the agreement was carried, largely on the assurances of '  Mayor Taylor and Mr. Howard, the Great Northern special representative, that;  work would commence at once. / v  All through the negotiations between the City and the Railway Company there ^������$$3$  was a familiarity between the Mayor and the Company which justifies the conclu- .-7:SM%  sion that His Worship was not entirely impartial* in dealing with this question, in' C ^; (yg  fact, he acted more like a special envoy of the Company's rather than as Mayor of '>/,:"%V^Sft  the City. ( - (        ^K'M  While the agreement was under consideration by the Council, he, the Mayor,   ^ *h$'������^  wrote a letter to the Seagraves Company of Walkerville, Ontario, asking them to 7 A'<'$0p_  ship a couple of carloads of fire apparatus through the States via the Oreat North-   :<>f/^|  ern.-  Now the Great No'rtbern does not go near Walkerville, a ,fact of which the  'I ^II^  Mayor was well aware, then why these instructions f . Again, it cost a great deal : V':.\^'4f  more to ship it through the States, then why patronize this American Soadf The      : W^  Mayor boasts of his loyalty to Canada, yet he would pay a larger freight rate if -!  only he could favor an American road.  Or was it his personal interest in the Great  Northern which led hiyi, to urge this course should he followed f It is assuredly .odd  to see a Mayor make such a request on behalf of a Railway Company, especially so  when the City, whose interests he is supposed to protect, is negotiating with the'*  Company. ,  Another rather remarkable co-incidence occurred early this year. His Worship and Aid. Stevens were appointed by ,the Council to go to Victoria to meet .the  Provincial Government re charter amendments. It was arranged that they should  leave Vancouver on Sunday's boat and keep the appointment at 10 ajn. Monday. '  His Worship, however, left Vancouver on Thursday and proceeded to Seattle,  where he remained until Sunday. The peculiar part of the situation is that Messrs.  Hil^and Oilman of the Great Northern left Victoria on the same Thursday and,  they, too, remained in Seattle until Sunday. This was immediately after completing the agreement with the Provincial Government *  Now what passed between Mayor Taylor and the official* of the Oreat Northr  etnwhUe in Seattle f His Worship may say that it is no business of the public  what passed at that conference and that he has the right to meet raSwa? ofecials  in private if he so wishes.  Or he may reply that, as/manager of the WorW newspaper, he has important business transactions with the Oreat Northern which are t  private. All this is, no doubt, perfectly true and we do not claim the right to do- I  mand any statement of private business, but we do contend, however, that when the f  Cijy is making a very Important bargain with a Railway Company that its chief  magistrate shall be impartial and if he has private business with that Company he  sWill be neutral during negotiations and not act as though he were its special repre-  senHtive.  We also contend that the average man would And it difficult to be fair and tin-  biased in a transaction in which bis private affairs played so important a part as  :  to demand frequent conferences during the period of negotiation.  We bitterly opposed this Great Northern agreement from the first and subsequent events have proven that we are right.   Jf the public wish a few more such -  bargains then they should support Mavor Taylor, as he is now prepared to turn the *  City, body and soul, ovei* to the B. C. Electric,' and would have done so this year,  only for the opposition of the Council.  ������  ������i ������..������n������ ���������������������.!,,..  ������  |   III   linn  II   >   I   | Hi ������������'������!������ nullum   III  ������������������I H il'il i|  ,ii|i I i|ii|i.,i I   I   I ml III  |i|ll|i||l >l'll������  ************************** fw������tweef������������t������������������et������������^  *****+*&.l.inM������l*4~tt4^*~i-<l-*-l"*  %  *********'l****************.

We have  used our religious nature like our  Sunday garment���������wearing it but once  a week. After attending our church  we have allowed, our religion to pass  away with the Sabbath day.  We have, however, been' terribly in  earnest in an industrial;- way. In our  business management we have studied every detail diligently and success has followed. In our churches  we have gone blindly on, trusting the  management to Providence. In a  business way we have co-operated  with every kindred business, and mutual benefit has resulted. Religious  organizations have gone oh fighting  alone, or worse still, sometimes in opposition' to agencies whose motives  were identical with the church's. The  relationship between ourselves and  our business customer has been one  of constant watchfulnss. We try to  satisfy his every need. Spiritually  we have forgotten that we are "our  brother's keeper."  But the old order changeth! Today arises in our midst a mighty  movement, which says that business  methods must be applied to religion;  preachers must not only be expounders of the Gospel, but they must be  organizers and leaders of men. Religious organizations must study the  details of the business; they must find  oat why there are three million men  in America who are lost to - the  church; religion must be made masculine enough to appeal to the present  standard of American manhood,  churches, brotherhoods, associations  mint co-operate with every other influence, whether religious, social, moral, political or Intellectual and work  together for the betterment of mankind. Religion must cease being  meek and become militant.  This new' movement which has  aims and aspirations exceeding that  of any organization of a religious nature in modern times is called "The  Men and Religion Forward Movement" The Initial steps for this  great campaign, which is expected to  revolutionize the religious atmosphere  of North America were taken in New  York City on May 18, 19X0. The  growth of this movement appears to  have been almost spontaneous. Upon  further thought, however, we are  forced to admit that the "Men ami Religion Forward Movement" is buYjithe  crystallisation of the past twefcty  years of religious unrest. Thinking  men have long recognised that there  was something hindering the progress  of religion. Various causes have  been attributed, hut few have ventured to lay tbe blame to lack of organizations. The reluctuance along  this line of attack has undoubtedly  been due to the fact that so many re  gard the church as a God-made institution, the sanctity of which Should  not be disturbed by material agencies.  This reasoning cannot bold in the  face of the finances which are found  necessary to keep up the modern  church; Materialism must enter, and  why should it not? Christ lauded the  woman who gave up her mite, ad  vised the rich young man to share bis  wealth for a good cause, and told  parables about the ��������� use of money,  wherein those who did not use their  money for profit were chastised. The  religious campaign of Christ and his  disciples was not secret or meek, and  he left an eternal message, which has  been turned over to us that we may  give it to the needy world. If our  industrial and social conditions are  such that we must conduct our duty  towards Mm on a business basis, is it  not our obligation to do so?  This Is precisely tbe task which  the "Men and Religion Forward  Movement" has set for itself: to extend the massage of Christ to the  male population of North America*  through business methods. In ninety-  six of the largest cities of the United  States and Canada there are central  bureaus, whose business it Is to study  the social, moral and religious conditions of their city. ��������� From this central  bureau, organized on the most complete plan, there radiates agencies  which touch every surrounding city  and town. The auxiliary towns committees further reach out to the rural  communities. No fteritory will escape the influence of this mighty effort to bring men everywhere back to  the church.  In the face of this, the mightiest of  human efforts yet put forth to place  Christianity within the reach of every  man, who will say that the kingdom  of God is not nigh?  A gradual change seems to be coming over /the world as to the value of  old men in practical every-day life.  Weston's recent walks across the  continent sered to demonstrate the  power of endurance in well-kept men  of age.  In a recent English swimming  match the palm was borne off by an  athlete of seventy-five.  The new lord mayor of London is  an octogenarian.  Many of the chauffeurs of the country are men in advanced years'. Indeed a great host of elderly men guide  their own motor cars.  A writer says:  "Ten years ago the automobile was  associated .with extreme youth. Today witness the gay old boys swishing  along the highway. The increasing  age of the taxicab drivers is one of  the marked phenomena in the streets  of London. In every line of. life the  aged one is resuming his rightful pre-  minence." ���������  It is true that in the Gospel ministry age still seems to be against a  man. At the recent session of the  British Weeleyan conference fifty-five  elderly preachers were laid off, but it  is thaqught that many of them bad become unduly sensitive because" invitations to prominent pulpits had hot  come to them.  ��������� It is a weakness of the itinerants  that- they, shrink from accepting work  in the lower "grades." and some of  them will retire before they will do it.  "Greens" are good for a relish, but  not for a' permanent diet  It is reported of Bishop Candler  that when .a committtee from a leading congregation waited on him to  tell him that what they needed in  their pastor was "young blood," he replied: "O no, brethren! You are in  error about that Half the pulpits In  this state are suffering from cholera  Infantum."  The one thing most needed to make  preachers of advancing years more acceptable is a studious, cheery, resolute spirit that can be bearttully  young In any field with the best of  them/'- :-        :���������'���������. i'-';' '" '��������� ������������������'':'���������   '������������������������������������'���������: ������������������ ���������'-';���������  Spiritual maturity combined .with  intellectual vigor is a better qualification for pulpit efficiency than mere  physical energy-yoked up with mental  caUowness.  Manly character Is a desideratum  whether in young or old. Tbe winning pastor in the long run is he who  convinces the church by his words  and deeds that in his heart and life  the salt has not lost its savor."

BURNS A WALKER,  Solicitors tor the Assignee.  The original "Dixie" was a simple  refrain that originated among negro  emigrants to the south about one century ago. On the Island of Manhattan  (New_ York) a man named Dixy  owned slaves, and the growth of abo-  IKion sentiment made them unprofitable to him. He therefore sold them  to southern planters, who made their  life a burden, and they sighed for  Diuy's. The sigbings ere long took  form in a refrain, which, by additions  and adaptations, became elevated Into  the dignity of a song, and was chanted during war time all over the south,  This is how the south came to be  called the Land of Dixie."  The New Orleans Picayune vouches  for the following as the correct original of the famous "Dixie," as sung in  war times:  I wish I was in de land of cotton,  Old times dar am not forgotten;  In Dixie land wbar-I was bawh in,  Early on a frosty mawin*.  Ole missus marry Will de weaber,  Will be was a gay- deceaber;  When he put his arm around her  He looked as fierce as a forty-pounder.  His face was sharp as a butcher's  cleaber,  But dat didn't seem a bit to grleb'er;  Will run away, missus took a decline,  Her face was de cotor ob bacon rtne,  t  While missus llbbed   she   llbbed in  ciober,  When she died she died all ober;  How could she act the foolish part  And marry a man to broke her heart?  Buckwheat cake and cawnmeal batter  Makes you fat, or little fatter;  Here's a health to de nex' old missus,  And all do gals dat wants to' kiss us.  Now if you want to dribe away sorrow, ^  Come and hear die song tomorrow;  Den hoe it down and scratch de grabble,  To Dixie land I'm bound to trabble.  Chorus���������  I wish I was in Dixie, hooray, hooray!

Baxter: Few men in Vancouver are as  well acquainted with the Fifth Ward as Mr. T. 8.  Baxter, who is now an aldermanic candidate for  its duties and honors. He has been three times  alderman of this ward during his nineteen years'  residence within its bounds.  His platform may be stated thus in brief: ''I  believe in the Fifth Ward and Greater Vancouver;  in a clean, progressive government for the city:  in good roads, better transportation, and a line of  auto omnibuses to meet the emergency confronting  us today; in improved harbors and the things that  provide for the multitudes coming from every  land to make Vancouver their permanent home."  Mr. Baxter has been in this city twenty-one  years, during which time he was for seven years  first assistant teacher in the Mount Pleasant public schools. The remainder of his time has been  spent in study, business and the practice of law.  He is a lawyer by profession and a business man  by choice.  Mr. Baxter has engaged the Oddfellows' hall,  Mount Pleasant, for a meeting on the evening of  Jan. 5, to which he cordially invites all JJifth Ward  candidates.  citizen to have ou the council.  We have no hesitancy in urging our readers to  support him as one of the aldermen for Ward V.  Jj you want a Mayor who will Represent  the City, and not Individuals and Corpora  atwns, vote for FINDLAY u������-*&:  Mr. Wm. JDavis, candidate as alderman for  Ward V, whose platform appears in another part  of the paper, has lived in Mount Pleasant for  nearly fourteen years. Mr. Davis has property  in the east end, the west end and the centre of  the ward, making him thoroughly interested in  the whole ward. Mr. Davis has always taken a"h  'active part in civic affairs. In 1907 he served as  License Commissioner, during which term he.  successfully opposed the granting of licenses to  cafes.  On account of ill health Mr. Davis has given  up his profession and so will be able to devote  all his time to civic matters if elected as alderman of Ward V. Mr. Davis promises to stand  for the things which the citizens ot* this war*l  favor.  Mr. Wm. Winn of 1075 Tenth avenue west,  candidate for aldermanic honors and duties in  Ward VI, stands for the moral uplift of the city.;  the efficient spending of civic moneys; the laying  of all sewer and water connections to the lot line  before permanent pavement is laid; better transportation, prmanent street-grades, adequate and  permanent sewers, the present system of taxation  and other matters that make for the prosperity  of the Sixth Ward and Greater Vancouver.  Mr. Winn has been endorsed by a majority  vote in two ratepayers' meetings and two hundred voters.  As a citizen he has aimed to do his duty and  now pledges himself to serve the public to the  best of his ability.  If you want a Mayor who will Represent  the City, and not Individuals and Corporations, Vote for FINDLA Y  ALDEBMAN WILLIAMSON.  With the exception of six weeks that Alderman  Williamson was in the hospital, he has been a  most energetic worker^-for Ward V, and richly  deserves to be returned to the council for another  year.  You may always know where Mr. Williamson  is at on any question. He knows nothing about  equivocation or subterfuge. He is always plain  spoken and honest in his convictions and we admire him for it.  He ia a practical man and is a good type of  PAEK COMMISSIONERS.  E. S. Enowlton, one of the Park Commissioner  candidates, is well and favorably known in Vancouver, where he has resided for sixteen years,  during which time he has been thoroughly identified with public interests. He was four years a  member of the Exhibition Association Board; director of the Vancouver Horse Show Association  two years; president of the Pharmaceutical Association one year; representative of the British  Columbia Pharmaceutical Association conventions  in Toronto, Ont.; Banff, Alberta, and Halifax,  Nova Scotia. He is a director in the Vancouver  British Empire Fire Insurance Association.  Mr. Knowlton is devoted in the improvement  of the public parks of the city and stands for  good, permanent roads in the parks and the everlasting exclusion of trams, He -believes in the  preservation of choice natural parks in and adjacent, to the city as breathing places for men,  women and children in years to come.
