STEVENS, M.P., EDiTOR-in-Chief  VVANCOUVER, British GoiMmbia; ^DECEMBER ;l2������m&ly;  [\y  i/>  Kr  ,   A  The Anglican Qhxtrch:   Age-Long1.  ��������� j  (Prof. E. Odium, M.A.. B.Sc.)  A true friend should Apoint out the weakness  of a friend, ho as to render a service of love and v  duty. A little while ago, I said some things concerning an extreme element in the Grand Old  Anglican Communion. In doing so, I may have  unintentionally hurt some of my readers? If iso,  I am extremely sorry. I would rather be wounded  ten times than,give hurt ouce. '  I have boon compiling notes for years on certain lines of historic research, and iu so doing, I  have had to examine carefully into church his-  <��������� tory.   Iu tliis way, I soon found that one, and only  - one of the modern, up-to-date (Churches outstripped all others in age and official standing.   We all  ' know that the Alethodist, Presbyterian, Baptist,  > Congregational, and the many other similar de-  jr    nominations are comparatively modern.  In fact, the Roman Catholic Church, goes back  f^7 only to the time ������f St. Peter, in its claim.   But as  ^    T read history, I am convinced, and affirm that'-the  ,> ;, ANGLICAN CHURCH had its origin away back  Cyjbefore the days of Christ on earth; before   the  v/^'tiines of the prophets; before the reigns of Solo-  N. mon, David and Saul; before the times of   the  Judges; away back to the days of Moses   and  /Aaron, if not before.  * In a short letter to the Western Call, little  ^--J" beyond short, crisp assertion ean find place.   But  feyjr'I"shall venture a few strong positive words which  f^ywilljshow where I stand in relation sto the Angli-  ^jj^.fian Communion.   As'I look out on the religious  ^'yworld, and see the different Christian denomina-  '^ Ltions, I am reminded of the great River St. Law-  ^ Vrence flowing majestically on its course, for long  .J* -;w ages.    I have examined all its feeders on   the  , *i J.Norqh shore from Duiuth to its mouth, and most  ' ���������*' -on tike south side.   One may learn many lessons  "- y/therqfrom.   One I now give.  Let a person canoe  J. "xlownvthe River Ottawa, and he is sure to con-  [ \ ?^elude,Vrom examining it and its feeders, that this  r^-$"J|oble river is comparatively pure.  ifi������������5" But l$t him go down to where the Ottawa joins  ^ 7yhe St. Lawrence, and he will be surprised to see  ������ Vtliat the Ottawa is a little, dirty stream compared  fj?7 "with the grand, majestic, mightjr and limpid pure  >S#'River St. Lawrence.  ^  >.  may^be7c6nsi<Jered> mote, or less pure by compari-  ywhi.v' Each invaluable, andnxost are, or have,beeni,,  nece.ssary^ E^tJlBiefi^re examine-into the'-oKgfti?^  growth, proportions, Vses, history, adaptability to  human needs, relationships to home life, community life and national life; the unruffled dignity,  zealous devotion to duty, great, strong, manly,  fearless action under all circumstances, and AGELONG existence; all, ALL pale and dwarf into  comparative insignificance beside the ANGLICAN  CHURCH.  The very term Anglican traces back to the days  of JOSEPH, before he went down to Egypt. It  Kas, a meaning that can never die out from the  British people. God called Joseph to Egypt and  there gave him a future, more glorious than that  " of all the other tribes put together.    ���������  Joseph was the MAN RELIGIOUS of all the  twelve patriarchs.    And from Joseph,   through  "��������� TEphraimrhisTPirstbbrn-sonT-cameto England-the -  term Angle.  In the days of Jesus Christ, our Saviour was  forced to take the KINGDOM ofv Heaven from  Judah and to give it to a NATION BEARING  THE FRUITS THEREOF. When the blessed  Saviour, went to His Father in heaven, His servants were scattered. As they wTent from country to country thev effectively preached the "Gospel of the KINGDOM."  Paul, not a Jew, though of the House of Judah,  but a Ben jamite, went to Britain ajjfd there preached the good news. Joseph of Arimathea, and Simon Zelotes went over to the land, we now eall  England, and with others helped to found the  Christian Chnrch.  I assert most positively that this early, Christian. British, Anglican church never, in toto, went  under, or into the Roman Catholic Communion.  The British-Christian Church antedated the advent of the Roman Catholic Church in Britain by  many hundreds of years; "  But this is not all. When the companions and  contemporary Co-workers of Jesus went to Brit-,  ain. they FOUND A CHURCH, A RELIGIOUS  COMMUNION already there, which had been  there many hundreds of years before the birth of  Julius Caesar. . Arid" this was the ancient Israel-,  itish Church, the Church in the Wilderness having come down along the ages,, arid with our ancestors, the "Scattered of the House of Israel,"  passed over to the "ISLES AFAR OFF," to "the  Isles of the Blessed," according to ancient writers.  This ancient BRITISH Church,, having sprung  from the days of, or preceding Moses, is the body  that took up-the "GOOD^ NEWS" brought to  them by the apostles and their contemporaries.  And in spite of persecutions, far surpassing those  of any other people, that ANCIENT-BRITISH,  Modern-CHRISTIAN, Anglican Church has come  down to the present day Avith glory, honor, dignity, majesty and power, far surpassing any other  religious body in the history of mankind, y  I would not have my readers imagine I am  praising my own religious denomination. - I am  -not. I am a Methodist, and am quite attached to  these good, respectable, earnest'peopled-  But I am more impressed with the long life,  far-reaching influence, holy7zeal,,-and;-NATIONAL".

This cannot be the cause as ttie^ro^ Rail  way Company completed their arrangements eleven months ago, which removed  that subterfuge. S   . ^ >    ���������'*������'*    " ;  As a matter of fact there is positively no excuse whatever why the Great Northern should not have had the work Avell under way long ago.   This Company is no-   :  torious for its disregard of public convenience or public demands, and will seldom 7  make a move until forced to do so. -       . . - N  That the City has been deceived in the bargain made, is generally accepted tb  be the case. The vote on the agreement was carried; largely on tlie assurances of  Mayor Taylor and Mr. Howard, the Great Norithern special representative, that  work would commence at once. I  V.  All through the negotiations between the Citjr and the Railway Company there  was a familiarity between the Mayor and the. Company which justifies the conclusion that His Worship was not entirely impartial in dealing with this question/in  fact, he acted more like a special envoy of the Company's rather than as Mayor of  the Citv. , ^        "-���������-.- _ i  While the agreement was under consideration by the Council, he, the Mayor,  wrote a letter to the Seagraves Company of Walkerville, Ontario, asking them to  ship a couple of carloads of fire apparatus through the States via the Great North-  Now the Great Northern does not go near "V^alkerville, a fact of which the,  ern.  anythiri^m:^hwi|!lflj^pi  k;k In7ple:ading7f6iptlie;7seri������t& _  v7arbitration';treaties7i^j^^i^tlre?

Mayor was well aware, then why these instructions������ Again,' it cost a great deal  more to shij> it through the States, then why- patronise tliis American Road? The  Mayor boasts of his loyalty to Canada, yet he would pay a larger freight rate if  onjy he could favor an American road. , Or was it his personal'interest in the Great  Northern which led him to"urge this course'should\be followed? It is assuredly odd  to see a Mayor make such a request oil behalf of ia Railway Company, especially so  when the City, whose interests he is supposed'to protect, is negotiating with the  Company. - .  ,/x y :y'  Another rather remarkable coincidence 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. -Itvwas arranged that they should  leave Vancouver on Sunday's boat and keep the appointment at 10, a.m. Monday.  His Worship^ however, left Vancouver1 onp Thursday and proceeded to Seattle,  where he remained until Sunday. Tlie peculiar part of the situation is that Messrs.  Hiirand  Now'what passed between Mayor Taylor and the officials of the Great North-"  em while, in ,fo that ft is nonbusiness of wthe,public  what^passed^al' tliat conference and that he has the right to Tnee't 'railway oincials t,  in private if he so wishes. Or he may reply that, as manager of the World news-! ,  paper, he has important business transactions with the* Great Northern which are  private. All this is, no doubt, perfectly true and we do not claim the right to demand any statement of private business, but wre do contend, however, that when the  City is making a very important bargain with a Raihvay Company that its chief  magistrate shall be impartial and if%e has private business with that Company he  shall.be neutral during negotiations and not act as though he were its special representative. '        ������ ,i  We also contend that the average man would find it difficult to be fair and unbiased in a transaction in which his 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. If the public wish a few7 more such  bargainslhenthey^ should~l>iTpp"6rt~MavoTr Taylor^as he"is~EoW prepaTedto~turn"tlie"  City, body and soul, over to the B. C. Electric, and would have done so this year,  only for the opposition of the Council/    - .    \ '*'  POINT GREY FRANCHISE.  Some residents of Point Grey are saying, that the people in Vancouver should  mind their own business and let them deal with this franchise question their own  way. These parties, needless to say, are anxious that the B. C. Electric should get  tlie franchise and are unwilling that there should be much publicity given 'to its  discussion, because did the people thoroughly understand what the consequences of  their act would be, thev would turn it down flat.  Let us analyze briefly the attitude of those supporting the B. C. Electric. First  there is the resident who lives off in the bush and must have transportation to get  to and from his work. Next the person owning property in Point Grey, who intends making a home there. With these we have much sympathy and realize what  it means to them to have a carline. < ;,  Then there is the Municipal Council which is besieged with demands for transportation and it is more simple for them to close with the B. C. Electric now, no  matter what the consequences may be, as they will not be in office when the full effects  are felt in years to come. This attitude, while often assumed by civic bodies, is  wrong. The.-'people depend, to alarge extent, on the Council to protect them and  tlieir future interests, and! that is why they are intrusted with the responsibility df  office. "STet another class of supporters is the real estate agents who wish tramlines  in order to assist them to sell property. Perfectly legitimate, but not a reason to be  used in reference to matters':pf great public moment.  Point Grey residents should remember that they may now make or mar the  future of their municipality.    ^  * It is contended by the B.C. Electric, and, its agents and canvassers, that, if this  by-law is turned down, Point Grey will have no tram service for five or six years.  '���������And," they naively ask, "why should you residents of Point Grey sacrifice yourselves for the benefit of Vancouver, or wait for so many years?*' '  This is all pure nonsense. There isno need to wait for any considerable timel  The B.C .Electric are at the present moment in a panicfor fear the franchise is refused. They know perfectly well that their only hope is to assume an attitude of  indifference and deceive the public into believing that they will be deserted if they  turn it down.     ���������. ,-' y.   .-������������������������������������ 'r   '}  Have the citizens of Point Grey ever stopped to ask, how the B. '0. Electric  treats its patronsi Do they take into consideration the wretched service given to  and from the City? Is there a single line running out to Burnaby, South Vancouver or Point Grey which gites even a reasonable service! Do they not pile the"pep-  '���������"' ���������'''['*-..

Seymour 2I79L  \^-^7gEATTIE:^y y  Auctioneer,   Appraiser and Notary Public-for British Columbia  General Real Estate, Mining Broker, Financial Agent  Four years ago Thomas D. Coldicutt moved to Burnaby and bought and cleared a tract of land which he  converted into a fruit farm. 3  He early saw that things were not conducted as well as might be in the municipality; there Were no roads  worth mentioning, and settlement was slow and difficult.. .  After he had been there two years he decided to run for the position of Councillor, and entered a three-  cornered fight, which he won. After being in ihe Council for three weel(s, he was appointed chairman of the  important Finance Committee, the position second to tint of Reeve. This goes lo show that his energy and integrity were thus early recognized by his fellow-workers in Burnaby.  The next year he was elected by acclamation      This also speaks for itself.  At this election, his present opponent in his fight for ihe Reeveship, Reeve IVeart, Was elected to the position he now holds, and he was not slow to recognize thz worth of Tom Coldicutt. Weart appointed him chairman of the Finance, Water, Police, Inter-Municipal, and Light and Power Committees. .  ' These positions he has held and filled with all the energy and ability for which he is becoming /noted  ^throughout his municipality.  His first clash with, J. W.  Weart Was over the question of large contracts which Weart was in favor of.  letting to outsiders, and the policy of Burnaby had been to let contracts, as much as possible, to settlers within  the municipality as a large number of settlers were quite able to do the-work satisfactorily, and in fact needed  the work, and it was held that they should have the preference if possible.'  The next great question was, of course, the B. C. Eleciric franchise by-law, and it Was due principally to the  " vigorous fight put.up by Councillor Coldicutt that the obnoxious measure was defeated and Burnaby saved from  what, would have amounted to practically a perpetual franchise. ' ,  That question is not settled. It is still the great bone of contention in Burnaby, and Councillor Coldicutt is  asking for the support.of- the Burnaby electors as a candidate'for the Reeveship so that the good Work that has  already been done in this connection will not be lost.  -. Coldicutt is a progressive, ambitious, energetic man with liberal and large ideas; it is, lo a great extent,  due to his energies on the Council, that Burnaby is as far advanced as she is today. He will be able to do a  vast amount for Burnaby if he is elected Reeve.  Among his other schemes for the advancement of Burnaby is a comprehensive water system, embracing the  North Arm District, Barnet Road, Burquiilam and North Burnaby.  His main idea is, however, "Burnaby for ihe Burnabyites," and he believes that every citizen of Burnaby  should Work shoulder lb shoulder in order to make their municipality the .greatest in the province.

They are being used in  making English plum pudding, and  Miss Lilla P. Frich, supervisor of cooking, is experimenting to see whether  or not carrots can take .the place of  eggs in v other dishes. Necessity  brought about by the increased cost  of living is the mother of Miss Frich's  starting discovery. Miss Frich has  been obliged to curtail the use of eggs,  as the price of eggs has soaredJi She  got along nicely until the approach' of  the holiday season, when all the sti������  dents wanted to learn how to cook  English plum pudding. Eggs are one  ofthe sby-'-; used in plum pudding,  and Miss ''Frkli found she could not  afford to teach the students how to  make the piuih pudding unless she  found a substitute for eggs. After several' experiments Kiss Frich tried  mashed carrots. The result, according to Miss Frich, is above her fondest expectations.  Himknowledgy.

The lodestong,  or natural magnet, was found In Magnesia, Asia, 1000 B. C, and the Chinese had some :cnowiedge of :t properties, but they had no compass.  Roger Bacon perceived the tendency  of the magnetic needle to point northward 1294 A.D., but Flavia Gioja, ot  Amalphi, appears to have developed  the first real compass about the year  1302.  The thermometer was invented hy  Galileo in 1597, as an instrument for  ascertaining the heat of the human  body. Spirits only were first used.  Jean Rey, a doctor of Pericord, early  in the se\enteenth century, invented  a water thermometer, which he de-  ccribed as "a little round vial with a  long uivorked neck, to be placed in  the hards of a fever patient, after  having filled it, all but the neck, with  water. The heat dilating the water  caused it to rise more or less, according as the heat is great or little."  The mercury thermometer was in-i  vented by Romer. but Farenheit, a  Hollander, in 1720, made it what it is  now by applying the measuring scale.  - #The barometer was the invention ot  Torricelli, an Italian mathematician,  who lived in the first half of the  seventeenth century, and the successor of Galileo as professor of mathematics at Florence. The instrument  constructed by Torricelli was almost  identical with the simplest fois's now  in use. It consisted of a glass tube  aboiK th ioe feet long, partly filled  with meicury, and closed in a manner  to leave a vacuum In the upper end  of the tube. Torricelli discovered  that changes in the weather caused  fluctuations in the height of the column of mercury, but died before perfecting his discovery. Pascal and  others demonstrated the connection  between the density ancl pressure ot  the atmosphere and the height of the  celumn ot mercury in in the barometer.

It  was improved by Hans Lippersheim,  of the same city, in 1608, and perfected by other men in 1639 and later  dates. Telescopes have been made  with tubes large enough for a man to  walk in. Whn Herschel's great telescope was taken down from its stand  in 1S39, his whole family sat in it and  sang a farewell song.  The telegraph is a nineteenth century affair. A "deflective electro-magnetic telegraph" was patented In England, -June 12, 1837. On March .3,  1843, the American congress, at the  instance of Prof. Morse, at the very  last moment 'before .adjournment,  passed a bill for the construction of  a telegraph line betwixt Baltimore  and Washington, and about a year after that the first message, "What  | hath God wrought!" was sent by Miss  Annie Ellsworth from Washington, to  Prof. Morse in Baltimore. The young  lady was thus honored because she  was the first to hurry to Prof. Morse  with the happy news that his bill had  become- law.  The telephone, in some respects the  most wondertul of all human contrivances, is an invention of recent date.  An Englishman is credited with having devised something in this^ line as  long ago as 1835, and ������i Frenchman,  named Bourseul, is also' mentioned as  having conceived the idea in 1854.  But the practical, working telephone  is the development of Alexander Graham Bell, who received letters patent  Cor his invention' March ~i, 1S7������J. The  Gray telephone and tho Edison telephone, both namfd after their inventors, are also among the first real  talking instruments. Z^he first conversation between New York and  Chic-aso was carried on in 1SS8.'  The riionograi/n is tho invention of  "'bonus A. Edison, who brought it  out in 1STT. and brought it to a higher  ft:: go oL perl action in 18SS. It is  n::ned from the Greek word phone,  sound, and gi;aphein, to write, it  ther.eiore means a sound-writer.  A  mechanical    de\lice,    called   the  BRITISH   COLUMBIA.

H. the Governor General takes  great interest in this subject, and the  convention will be held under his auspices. The members of the government and the parliamentary leaders on  both sides are furthering the arrange-  ments and the railways have granted  special rates.  An unfounded .impression prevails In  some quarters that lumbermen are opposed to forest conservation. That  this wrong ig shown both by the fact  that a number of the past presidents  of the Forestry Association are lumbermen, and by a further fact that  this year the Canadian Lumbermen's  Association will meet in Ottawa on  Feb. 6th, and the members will join  in the work of the convention and in  the banquet to be held on the evening  of Feb. 7th.  A number of distinguished men from  the United States as well as from- Canada, have promised to attend and the  programme so far arranged shows that  ���������the emphasis will be placed on the  practical side.

Electric directors and officials, when ask-7-  ed, pull a long face and reply, that it is impossible  to  keep  pace  with the  rapid  growth of the district, and we, the public have been swallowing this talk tor years..;  It is a subtle answer as it tickles the pride of the citizen, in suggesting to hira that  his city is growing so fast, but it is as false as it is subtle.   That' is not the reason ;  at all.   The B.C.

Twenty-two years ago I was saved from the surgeon's knife by ray intuitive faith in the works of  the Ancient teaehers and healers as is revealed in  the Holy Scriptures. From that day to the. present I have been, an ardent scientific investigator  and student of the mysteries- of Ancient arid,,mod-  ern Applied Psychological Science and have given  my best thought and work in "The Great' Message" "recently published and which is ,now on  sale at a number of the book'stores in Vancouver.'  The booklet has forty-eight pages, profusely illus-  , tratcd and is worth its weight in pure gold to any  scientific student in any calling, whatsoever, and  I may say to any one else as well.  The -price of "The Great Message" is only  "Fifty Cents," and should bevin every home in  Vancouver. It teaches "That we can control the  laws of nature and the power therein that pertains  to our lives by simply controlling the thoughts we  think and the thoughts we live, for the thoughts  we think and live leave their "psychic impress"  upon the cells of the subconscious, "body-mind"  and the Laws of Nature are instantly set into operation seeking to bring that impress into expression." If any oppose this work they are simply  ignoramuses,'and love not the ,truth (light).  ThV'Iiaw of Suggestion" when understood and  applied consciously and scientifically will eliminate all untoward conditions from' the race. I am  a scientific revelator of the Mysteries of the Ancients, as welt as of the most advanced modern  applied psychological science,, I heal by "The  Spoken Word" or scientific suggestions, and do  all my healing by TEACHING; "The Truth.Willy  Set You Free." ���������    -,.       y 7 .;  I will he a few days in Vancouver at "The, y  Morris," 1025 Granville street, Room 48o, to give  instructions in the Science of Suggestion.

XMAS AND SUNDAY SCHOOL.  A most interesting Xmas entertain  ment was given on Thursday evening,  December  21st.  in  the  Mt7 Pleasant.  ���������Methodist, school'��������� by the primary and  junior 7 departments 7 of    the    above  school.   The programme ^vas entirely  rendered   by   the  juveniles,   and" the  meeting presided over by th? faithful  superintendent  of  the  senior  department.   It was. indeed a pretty picture  that faced the audience.   A tiny host  of    bright,    intelligent,    happy-faced  children, with a large Xmas tree as a  background: loaded with Xmas  gifts,  but not for themselves; and a silver  line   across   the  choir  chancel,   from  which   dangled   stockings   arid   garments for children  of the  city who  were Jess fortunate than themselves.  Very appropriately the Xmas trees was  guarded by two silver stars.   The opening exercise was the hundredth psalm,  repeated   in   unison,   followed   by   a  formed by a dozen girls dressed in  rose-colored and. white. Their varied  and pretty movements held the audience in admiration and evoked much  applause. It certainly reflected great  credit upon the trainer, as indeed did  the whole performance from first to  last.  The teachers in these departments  are most devoted to their work, and  the able superintendents, Mrs. Derbyshire and Miss  Stinson, have a fine  staff in their S. S. officials.   These two  departments constitute no small family,  for there  are  one  hundred  and  forty-five on roll in the junior department and  one  hundred  and   twenty-  nine ia the primary.    It is  the true  Christ  idea   that  is   inculcated   into  these  little minds,  namely,  that     ot  giving rather than getting, for. their  birthdy   offerings   made    during _ the  year  are   expended   on   toys,   books,  clothing,    etc.,    for    poor,    cuildren.  Worthy   of   especial   mention   is   the  intermediate class of boys',; whose offering consisted in,,a' big "Xmas dinner"  for a  whole family.'   This   was  carried to the platform in a box filled  to   the  brim.    This  is  not   the' first  kind act of this class of-boys, for it is  of frequent occurrence; and led by their  devoted-"and generous-hearted, teacher  there is every prospect of the evolution  i  No Credit.

Dear Sir,���������Your well-informed contributor, Prof. E. Odium, M.A., B. Sc,  gave your readers a very interesting  article on the above subect. He asked  a question which is well worrhy an  answer. The question: "Why does the  Church of Rome'so largely refuse to  permit the free and open study of the  Old and New Testament?" Now, I  could give several answers to this  question. There are two, however,  that bear the hall-mark of Rome. One  is that the Bible as used among Protestants is faulty in translation. Another that the free and indiscriminate  reading of the Douay translation is  dangerous. The former objection is  based on ignorance and deceit. The  real reason is the latter. Cardinal  Wiseman was one of the most illustrious members of the Roman mission  in England, and what he has to say in  this matter should be given due weight.  He has betrayed the secret as to why  the Church of Rome is averse to the  study of the Scriptures, and antagonistic to Christ's admonition, "Search  the Scriptures." Cardinal .Wiseman  says: "The prohibition of the reading  of the Scriptures is the stronghold of  the Church's unity. Let the faithful  but read the Scriptures and (he government will fall to pieces; insubordination will enter, self-sufficiency and  pride will take the place of humility  and docility.5' When the pope says  that, as Vicar of Jesus, Christ, he is  judge of all men upon earth, then assuredly the faithful may not read that  Christ said: "I came not to-judge the  ���������world; but to save the world."  ���������  When the Scriptures tell us that xue  bond between man and God is without human mediation, and when St.  Paul exclaims, "Who shall separate us  from the love of Christ?" and the pope,  says he can, by a maledictory Bull,  then certainly he has done well in prohibiting the reading of the Holy Scriptures. ("Essays' on the use of the  Bible," by Cardinal Wiseman.) 1  think this is a full and complete answer.-to the question. Most of our  Roman Catholic friends ' would beat'  around the bush before they would let  the cat out of the bag like this. How  unwise of the Cardinal!  The Church of Rome made a great  mistake when it first began to agitate  against Bible-reading in the public  schools. I suppose it was .to put Protestants on the same level as themselves. If the boys and girls ,in our  public schools are "godless" the Church  of Rome is to blame. Yes, the authorities of the Roman Church call our  public schools' "godless institutions,"  yet in* the face of their libel the Roman Catholic Church turns,out a far  greater percentage of criminals than  any other denomination. Of these  criminals she has much to fear. The  very children who were taught in* her  seminaries in Spain were most in evidence where an assault was made on  her monks and nuns. The only safe  place for Rome to carry on her work  is where her people have been brought  up in a Bible-reading, Protestant atmosphere.  Is the Church of Rome safe in Portugal? In a few months at the most  she may be driven out 6jC Spain! In  Rome today she is on her last legs,  and it may be in' a decade or so the  people pf Rome by a popular vote may  hand the Vatican over for the use of  th!TMethodist"Church"r which- is-gaiii-  ing every day in the favor of the Italian people. There never was so many  Bibles in Rome as there is today.  When'the Pope lost bis temporal power in Rome, a lottery dream-book  could be found in almost every house,  but never a New Testament, cand ex-  eremely seldom any religious book at  all. But what was the use of Bibles  when nobody except a few could read  them! tt  "No wonder Roosevelt.'V says your  gifted writer, "has sounded the alarm  for the United States,"- because of the  mass of anarchists, bomb-throwers,  Sabbath-despisers, and law-breakers.  Garibaldi and Mazzini in their day  sounded the same alarm in regard to  lawlessness in the States of the  Church, which then had "direct government from God" in the, person of  the Pope. Of this period Trevelyan,  in his valuable work, "Garibaldi's Defence of the Roman Republic," says:  "The rulers at any rate did not regard assassination as wrong in itself,  for they employed -it as readily as  their opponents, who at best had the  excuse that they possessed no other  weapons. The Papal assassins, organized in the centurioni bands, appeared  openly, in Romagna and the Marches,  assuming the name and uniform of  pontificial volunteers, while in the other parts of papal dominions they remained a secret society, answering to  the Carbonari. The San-Fedists, who  protected the Holy Faith sometimes  by the dagger at midnight, sometimes  by open ruffianism-in the broad day,  were permitted by government to beat  or kill, at their pleasure, any man  dubbed a Liberal, Free Mason, or Car-  bonaro* until, to neglect attendance at  Mass, or even to grow one's beard,  was enoxigh to expose one to assault  by these bravos."  In regard to this abominable papal  yjtfcjt^[t|i.. worse than  %^Mir?kii;  that of the Turk, he further says:  "The life, freedom, and property of no  one who was not a friend to government had any real security in the papal states. Long lists of suspects were  handed about between the officers  spiritual and temporal, whose functions overlapped in'the most amazing  way. The houses of the suspects were  perpetually being searched, and their  daily goings out and in were watched  and reported. If evidence was lacking, cardinals did not stick at ordering ??????? circumstances lo be  tortured into proof, and presumably  the lower officials had small scruple in  obeying the spirit of their instructions.  The situation of a 'thinker,' driven into the confessional by the police, must  have had piquancy."  In these days the English were not  allowed a church in Rome.

There are 12,000 square miles of  peat bogs in Ontario and Manitoba,  enough to supply "5,306,076 families  with fuel equal to ten tons of good  coal each for 100 years.  Texas is considering the plan of  raising $50^000,000 by bonds for the  purpose of reclaiming the semi-arid  portions of the state, which have an  extent, it is estimated, of 20,000,000  acres.  An expression of confidence in the  future "almost without parallel" is  the announcement that the Union  Pacific and Southern Pacific railroads  are to be double-tracked from the Missouri river to San Francisco at a.cost  pf $75,000,000. These are the first  double tracks to the Pacific  The country is receiving constant  object lessons^ in the transitory nature of its investments in battleships.  The latest is the battleship Texas, the  earliest battleship of our navy, which  was built at a cost of $2,500,000,., and  launched in 1892. It is so hopelessly  out of date that it is to be dismantled  and used as a target during the coming spring' maneuvers. -    ��������� '        '  The claim is made that Dr. H. R.  Gaylord, of Buafflo, N. Y., has discovered a cure for cancer, and has successfully demonstrated it. In the case  of the cured boy. an operation had  been recommended to remove the cancer, whieh was located on his neck.  The boy's parents refused to allow  this and treatment followed. The vaccine gradually removed the cancer,  and now all trace of it has disappeared.  A company recently formed in Paris  proposes to utilize the River Jordan  to furnish electric light, heat and i  power to all Palestine. From its  source in Mount Lebanon to Lake Tiberias, the "Jordan descends with great  rapidity. Between Merom and the  lake, a distance of only about ten  miles, the little river falls 689 feet.

LIQUOR  An officer from Japan visiting Aimer-  ica, one day, while looking about a big  city, saw a man stop a milk wagon.  "Is he going to arrest the man?"  he asked.  i  "No," was the answer; "he must  see that the milk sold by this man is  pure, with no water or chalk mixed  with it."  "Would chalk or water poison the  milk?"  "No; but people want pure milk if  they pay for it." ,  Passing a whisky saloon, a man  staggered out, struck his head against  a lamppost, and fell to the sidewalk.  "What is the matter with that  man?"  "He is full of bad whisky."  "Is it poison?"  "Yes; a deadly poison," was the  answer.  "Do you watch the selling of whisky as you do the milk?" asked the  Japanese.  "No."  At the market they found a man  looking at the meat to see if it was  healthy.  "I can't understand your country,"  said the Japanese. VYou watch the  meat and" the milk and let men sell  whisky as much as they please."  THE SPICE OF LIFE.  have   any  The Ultimatum.

Deceased was  long;  and favorably known in the Central  Park district,  her  genial,  kindly  disposition   endearing   he'i-   to    all   who  knew her.    She was ever ready with  'friendly help in cases  of trouble or  'sickness, and will be much missed by  Iher neighbors. The floral tributes were  jve.y numerous", among which were the  following:   Dr. and Jlrs.

The closing exercises of the Carlton  School at Collingwood held last Friday, were highly successful in every  way. Every item on the program was",  carried out in a manner that would  have done credit to much'older performers, and the speeches by the various school trustees were-appropriate  to the occasion. The program was as  follows: Opening chorus, song by primer class, recitation by Gwynne Hur-  rell, song by primer class, fancy drill  by junior grade, various Recitations by  junior grade, song, "Sleigh Bells," dialogue, ''The Doctor," gun drill, piano  solo by Etta Watson, Japanese love  song by senior grade,-and tableaux.  O. G. Bibbs, the young lad who made  such a plucky stand against the two  hold-up men at the Central Park  branch of the Northern Crown~Bank,  is to be publicly entertained by a number of leading citizens of the district  when he is discharged from the hospital. A committee has been formed  to carry out the arrangements. Bibbs  is making good progress towards recovery.  The flying squad attached to Cedar  Cottage firehall held; their first ball at  Marfew Hall last Thursday. There was  ff^large attendance, including Reeve  Pound and Fire Chief Jordan. The  reeve in a few introductory remarks  complimented, the squad on their work  and enthusiasm, and also paid a deserved tribute to tbe South Vancouver  Citizen's Band, which supplied the music. The band formed up at the car  station and headed by Miss Todrick  and Mr. W. Wright,'together with the  firemen and reel, marched up to the  hall, accompanied by the fire chief and  his captains.  Damage to the -extent of $250 was  caused by fire at tbe residence of Mr.  R. P. Latta on Kerr Road last Friday  morning. ' The fire gained a firm hold  owing to the gale.  Friday was football night at the Municipal Hall, when the South Vancouver Football League entertained .their  friends and supporters at a grand concert, and the event was made'specially  interesting by the presentation of the  cup given by the Council, which is-to  be competed for by the clubs belonging to the league. Reeve Pound occupied the chair, and with hiin were  Councillor Martin and R. C. Hodgson,  Esq., chairman of the Board of Trade.  The reeve read a letter from Mayor  Taylor-of- Vancouver,-- expressing--regret at inability to attend. Councillor  .Martin, in presenting the cup to the  league, expressed the pleasure it afforded the Council to encourage true  sport in the municipality, and explained tbe conditions under which the cup  was given. It is to be competed for  annually by .amateur teams formed  within the municipality, and if won  three years in succession becomes the  property of the successful team. Trustees for the cup are Messrs. R. C.  Hodgson, E. E. Barker and J. Plena-  ming. Mr. Hodgson, speaking on behalf of the trustees, expressed bis  pleasure at seeing so much clean sport  in the municipality and his,approval  of training the mind by physical exercises to render the. body fit. The  trophy is a handsome specimen, standing about eighteen Inches high, and  bears the following inscription: "Presented by the South Vancouver Council to the South Vancouver Association  Football League, 1911, for competition." On the base of the cup are the  names of tbe Reeve and Council. It  will be competed for by the following  teams: River View, South Hill, Simon  Fraser, Victoria, and Hustlers.  Fire Chief Jordan was the receiplent  of a very handsome diamond ring at  Christmas, the gift of some of his brigade boys.  Christmas Day, from a police point  ot view, passed over very satisfactorily  in South Vancouver: No arrests or  charges were made, and it was not  necessary for the police court to meet  on Boxing Day.  During last week the building permits for South Vancouver totalled $31,-  500, one permit   being for a $10,000  apartment house on Twentieth avenue  east.  The^Collingwood lire brigade reported a small house fire on Christmas  Day. The house belonged to Mr. Gardiner, and owing to the prompt action  of the brigade was prevented from  spreading to. adjoining property.  -  The recent decision of the City  School Board to undertake the control  and management of Sunnyside School  in D. L. 301, has placed the South Vancouver School Board in rather an awk-  ward position. No notice to the contrary having been received from the  provincial authorities, the local board  presumed they were to continue in its  management, and quite recently six  teachers were-engaged at an average  salary of $60 per month. Unless the  city takes over these teachers, who are  engaged for the term, South Vancouver will be liable for their salaries.   ���������  The comptroller has been ordered to  issue a financial statement to the end  of November forthwith,~and this is to  be followed by a supplementary balance sheet to the end of the year as'  early as possible. Strong complaints  and comments owere mado last year  that no financial statement was issued  prior to.the elections.  The Christmas tree provided by St.  John's Church, Central Park, last Tuesday, was a great success and everyone  appeared delighted with the evening's  entertainment. v  The engineer was instru 2ted to have  the wooden standards for street names  erected without further delay^ He also  received orders to clear away the huge  mass of mud from Bodwell Road, and  DRY  -   If you once cook a Christmas  Dinner with DRY WOOD you'll'  never   rest   content  with   any  other.
