(Continued on Page 4)  The city ot VanepuVer own a strip of waterfront on Burrard Inlet at tiio loot  of Gore avenne. This lias been Jeased for some years past and used as a landing  plae'efor small craft. It should have* been retained under the direct control of the  city, but the*absurd policy of.leasing the public property in this Avay prevailed..  Recently the Grand Trunk Pacific have acquired-"the adjoining property westward  an dare constructing-' docks, This company struck a bargain with the leasee  of the Gore avenue property and purchased his lease, which expires in about  .eightecif months. They propose to, construct a dock within 10 to 20 feet of the line  offthe city property arid use Ihe"city frontage for berthing their vessels in.    .  Objections were made in the last council meeting by Aid. Enright against the  city confirming the leaset but it was argued byJAld. MkcPbgrson and other supporters of, the' G. T. P. that the said company were making a concession by keep-  Jug back 10 or 20 feet from the-line and also thai the" city could cancel the. lease  witlr thirty days' notice.   . ' '   ' *  i.< v- 7      > .- ���������". ' ��������� * -  ** Now "we ask the question, if the city .'approves'of the construction of a permanent dock within 10'or 20 feet of tlieir line, is it not reasonable to assume that at any  future datev if a dispute should ari^c, it would tie' ^decided that the city must allow  the* company to berth its vessels, by using city property ? Unquestionably so, and  this point is deliberately provided for by the company, who ask the city to approve  N'OW i% order that they may have tlii&hold in the future.  * * 4.     k I1 * > ' *  If this deal is allowed to pass by the council, it will mean that there is not a  foot of waterfronjt not under control of private, corporations from Coal Harbor to  flip glugar Refinery, and then only a street-end. ltTt will result in depriving the  small boats of a landing within a mile and a half of the center of the city.   It will  ������drive the tug boats as far east as Cedar Cove. ,  Heatley avenue wharf has been sub-let, contrary to the lease from the city, to  EvansT Cpleman & Evans, and tlie valuable dock which should be in the control of  its.'ow&ers" (the city) isdenied to the mosquito fleet.  As an illustration of .the danger in allowing the G. T. P. to control Gore ave:  ,nue, we would" refer-to a writ or injunction issued by the courts to, the G. T. P.,  restraining a shipping company from, using certain landings in Prince Rupert..  This was done to force the company to. pay excessive tolls to the G. T. P., and it is  reasonable to assume that the same company would be no more generous in Vancouver. ".':'"���������'  It is the business of the city to provide cheap landings for the smaller craft of  this port, where they can jtie up without being at ;t% niercy of thetlargei; concerns.  We require every foot of public wharfage We^can%cft;-and-'it<%anseconomH:"crinie-  to persist in leasing to exclusive concerns.  Headman's Island  Mr. Ivinman, representing those who think they have title to Deadman's  Island, is placing before the City Council a proposed plan of development of the  Island. In a most magnanimous manner he offers FREE several thousand feet of  wharfage IF the City will approve of his plan and assist by merely constructing a  bridge from foot of Denman street to the property.  In the first place the wharfage Mr. Kinman is going to give the City FREE is  a distinct encroachment on the City's foreshore rights from Stanley Park and,  -therefore,-is not a-gift at all. ���������It is on a par-with the-action of-a man plcaing-his-  line stakes 20 feet over his neighbor's property and then generously offering to  grant free to his neighbor his own land if he will build the fence. Mr. Kinman  wants the City to approve of his plan and build a bridge, which would cost half a  million, in exchange for the privilege of building, at its own expense, a dock on  property which rightfully belongs to the City independent of the disputed right of  Deadman's Island but by virtue of the foreshore rights of Stanley Park.  The latest and most shrewd move on the part of Mr. Kinman is in his effort  to get the military men of the City to act as rake his chestnuts out of:  the fire. He has Suggested that the military men of the City ncted larger parade  grounds (we agree) an dthat the only place is Brockton Point, but alas and alack  you cannot get there unless YOU GO AWAY AROUND BY COAL HARBOR.  Then the happy thought strikes him that a bridge across Deadman's Island would  solve the problemy and while, of course, it might interfere with HIS property, still,  as a man of intense public spirit, he is willing���������surely the city would not be so mean  as to refuse this for the military. And thus the effort is made to get the City embroiled in a dispute with the military men. But we think this trick will be discovered fully by the public who are not so easily fooled as some men think.  It is amusing to see two.such bosom friends as Walter Nichol, of the Province,  and L. D. Taylor, of the World, both working assiduously for this object. Again,  one must admire the skill of this promoter. In fact he has accomplished m this  the impossible.  It will be well remembered that Mayor Taylor sought to induce the City t(^pay  Kinman $400,000 for his precarious title to the property. A nice plum for Ivinman  and his Associates. Associates! By the way, who are they? Someone answers,  Theodore Ludgate. Wrong, friend. Mr. Kinman's associates are a number of  prominent Liberals, with just sufficient Conservatives to give spice to the syndicate,  and the so-called lease was obtained from the late lamented (by them) Dominion  Government as a quid pro "quo'-for" These gentlemen expect to make a good  thing out of it. It was a pure;'speculation with very little to lose .and--a great deal  to gain. . At present some of the members of the syndicate are feeling exceedingly  anxious about their "spec." They know-that Deadman's Island, without a "bridge  to it is useless. They 'know the City NEED NOT give the required connection to  the said bridge or build it. They know, deep down iirtheir innermost vitals, tliat  'the City should have possession." They FEAR that in'spite of the technical ruling  of'the'Privy Council that there is more than-a'fighting chance for the City to get  the property." In fact they are beginning to realize that Deadman's Island is a  White Elephant to any one except to 'its rightful -.'owner, the City. ���������  i  I  ITALY, TURKEY, EDOM,  ISRAEL AND BRITAIN  (By Professor E. Odium, M A.B.Sc.)  A few weeks ago when Italy was starting into  war upon Turkey, and while the press ia general  sdemed to think that the Turk was doomed to a  quick partition, partly in the hands of Italy, I ,  wrote to the press and said Italy could not administer the crushing-blow to the Ottoman Empire.  The ground of this statement I.made clear, by   .  saying this work was left, by divine appointment  and command to only one people on earth. , I mentioned the people by name' and, as per the Scriptures, named Israel. / .    ,  As I read past and present history, as well as t  the announcements of the prophets, I conclude  that Turkey is Edom.   And of course Edom is "*  Seir, or Esau.   Esau \vas the brother of Jacob,  that is Israel.   The work of a1 final and complete  ' crushing and -punishment o^f Edom is given* to   -  Israel.  Italy is not Israel, .therefore Italy will not crush  , Turkey. - . '' ^  It is a most wonderful thing that at this time   ,  there seem to' he only three, countries immediately  and openly interested in this war.   These ������re Turkey^ Italy and Germany.   Qermany is the power  behind the screen, the war between the Ottoman   ?'  <. and the Christian being nothing more than the  ' German Mask.   In the present trouble, one nation' ���������.';  and people, will come out ahead.   That nation is Xv  Germany.   This is a part of the grand .drama, jv  Italy, Austria and Germany are the bulk of official  ancient military Rome.' ���������  .Thus it comes to pass that at this moment, OLD  ROME is moving to crush the Turk, so as to get  ' control of, not North Africa, so much as OLD -7  ' Palestine.   Thus we find Anc\ent Rome, pressing -  on Edom, so as to Teach the covenant-granted'  country of Palestine, which was long since given' ,7  to Israel.   Hence Military Rome is striving to get   >  , a grip of Israel's Palestine.  Rome .is the *'Fourth -  Kingdom" of the prophet Daniel.  The "Fifth Kingdom" of that prophet is Israel,  and therefore it is going to be a straight struggle  between Israel and Rome as two mighty world-  empires. We see from the above where Rome is,  and where Edom is, but we have not yet mentioned the present seat and government of Israel.  Readers of history, ancient and modern, as well  as the prophetic writings, and who accept the  plainly written and easily understood meaning of  the Scriptures, readily locate Israel as Britain.  Hence it follows that Rome and. Israel, that is  Military Rome and Britain, must come into conflict over in Palestine. So we come to the logical  statement that Britain and the Roman official  Continental Military Confederation are soon to  enter upon a struggle such as has not yet been.  But Britain is Israel, and i!no_wpapoH_formed _-  <    y ���������.  1 'SI  .**>'  1   M  j* r  i -i,  '     '      ' .   -xi  '   :,   y'M  - 0   * ���������   .  ���������y^ y .

Israel is the "Stone  Kingdom" of Daniel, and therefore the Stone  Kingdom is Britain, the Covenant Man, or Nation.  "Israel is my Son, even my First-Born."  The Stone Kingdom is tp fill the whole world  and to crush out the Ancient Kingdoms yet on  earth, those of Daniel's vision. Among these four  kingdoms is Babylon the Mighty.n Here, then, is  an astounding work for Israel-Britain. Not only  is she to be matched against the powerful continental military confederation of Europe, but she  is to be matched against Babylon. And who will  say that Babylon at this hour is less powerful than  combined Germany, Italy, Austria and the other  countries that will be forced to join with them on  thei rjovirney to Palestine? Such a military confederation is one of astounding might, but Babylon  today is world-wide in a most material sense. Her  claims are for Universal Domination of Mankind,  including Military Rome, above described. And  perhaps Military Rome will be altogether managed and handled by Babylon, as was is being0  made upon the heritage of God's Israel, given by  an "Everlasting Covenant to Abraham, Isaac and  Jacob." In any case, the strife on the part of  Britain against both Babylon and Milit.iry Rome  is coining, and will be the most terrific in the  history of the world. Whether-she fights them  singly or together, she will triumph bv DIVINE  AND. MIRACULOUS interference, and then they  will be utterlv destroyed. Then-or'before, Edom  shall perish by the hand of "ALL ISRAEL."    -  ������ ...������ ������ ������ ������ ������ ��������������� 4 t-. ��������� . .. .. ������ ������ ������ ��������� i .  t ...:���������*.. ��������� ..... .:���������.....: . ���������  -+*-9~.~.  .-.   .......  .

Yet that was precisely    what   had  stood alone on the port side of .the  Falcon's small bridge, reading off the  signals and sending back spasmodic  twitterings of the flags which he, also,  had procured, to indicate that each  word was understood.  "Who is the skipper of the tug?" inquired Pyne, quietly. -  Both girls laughed.  "You mean Jack," cried Enid./  "He  is not the captain.   He is an officer of  the Royal Navy,vour greatest friend."  "Jack is his front name, I suppose,"  went on Pyne, breathing on the copper  disc in his hands, to test its clearness..

PYNE'S PROGRESS  ���������  I A primrose light ln the east heralded a chilly dawn. The little world of  the Gulf Rock bestirred itself in its  damp misery at the news. The fresh  watch, delighted by the prospect of  activity, clattered up and down the  iron stairs, opened all available windows, undamped the door when Brand  gave the order, and busied itself exceedingly with the desultory jobs  which offered to so many willing  hands.  It was now, by the nautical almanac,  dead low water on the reef, but the  etrong southwesterly wind, hurling;. a  heavy: sea completely over the rocks,  showed that the standards of war and  peace differ as greatly in the matter  of tides as in most other respects.  As the light increased it lost its  first warm tinge. Steel gray were sky  and water, sombre the iron-bound land,  whilst the whereabouts of the sun became a scientific abstraction. Therefore, the heliograph was useless, and  (Brand, helped by some of the sailors,  commenced to flaunt his flag-signals  to the watching telescopes on the far-  off' promontory of the Land's End.  The Falcon, strong-hearted trawler,  was plunging.towards the rock when  the first line of gay bunting swung  clear into the breeze. And what a  message it;was���������in its jerky phrases-  Its profound uncertainties���������for communication by flag code is'slow work,  not let him come."  "Ah," said Pyne.  "I    forbade    him,"  explained  Con  stance, ''because he has ��������� only three  days' leave from his Bhip, and I  thought he should give the first afternoon to his mother instead of playing  poodle for Enid."  "How dare you call Jack a poodle?"  was the indignant exclamation.  "Allow ^ me," drawled Pyne. "I'm  very glad you classified him."  Constance suddenly felt her neck  and face aflame. Pyne was standing  on her left, Enid on her right. The  quiet jubilation of Pyne's voice was so  unmistakable that Enid, for one instant withdrew her eyes from the distant ship. A retort was quick on her  lips, until she bethought her that the  American's statement might have two  inoanipgs.  Being tactful withal, she chose her  Words whilst she bubBled forth:  "He promised to take us for a drive  to-day. That is the dot and dash alphabet father and he are using. , If  dad requires all the dots I'm sure Jack  is monopolizing the dashes. He must  be furious about this gale."  ; Constance, who wanted to pinch  iEnid severely, had reverted to her  normal healthy hue by this time. She  dropped her glasses.  "We are shamefully wasting precious minutes here," she said. "Enid,  you and I ought to be in the kitchen."  Then   she  glanced  with  cold  self-  possession at Pyne;.who was whistling  softly between his teeth as he plied  i the duster.

"So you, at any rate, need not wear  your fingers to the bone," she added,  hurriedly.  y "Guess it must be a national vice,"  he said with irritating complacency.

Not,quite starvation, this menu, but  *ar from satisfying to strong men and  worn-out women.  .The   Falcon,   knowing the useless-  f:ess of attempting-to creep nearer to  he Gulf Rock, had,gone off with her  ��������� startle two continents,  fetanhope's last message was one of  Assurance. He would do all that lay  in man's power. The lighthouse soon  quieted down tp a state of passive refection. Pyne, refusing to be served  earlier, carried his own and- Brand's  scanty meal on a tray to the service-  room.  The unwearied lighthouse-keeper  was on the balcony, answering a kindly signal from the Land's Jtind, where  'the coast-guards were not yet in possession' of the news from Penzance.  He placed the tray on the writing-  desk and contemplated its contents  ruefully.  "I guess that banquet won't spoil for  treeping," lie said to himself. "I'll just  ay around and look at it until the bosa  quits making speeches by the yard."  A couple of minutes passed. Brand  Was hoistinfg the last line of flags,  when the American heard faltering  footsteps on the stairs.  "Don't follow so close, Mamie,"  paid a child's voice. "My arm hurts  just 'nuff for anything when I move."  A towzled head of golden halt  emerged into the light. It was one ol  the two little girls, whom Pyne had  iiot seen since they were swung aloft  from the sloping deck of the Chinook.  Their astonishment was mutual.  |The child, aged about eight, recognized In him a playmate of the fine  days on board ship. She turned with  confident cry.  "I told you so, Mamie. It was up.  You said down. Here's the big glass  house���������and Mr. Pyne."  : She quickened her speed though her  left arm was in a sling. Pyne, dreading lest she should fall, hastened to  help her.  "I'se all right, Mr. Pyne," she announced with an air of great dignity.  !"I make one step at a time Then 1  ketch the raih   See?"  "You've got it down to a fine point,  Elsie," he said. "But what in the  world are those women-folk thinking  of to let you and Mamie run loos-s  iabout the place."  Elsie did not answer until Mamie  Stood by her side.   Judged by appear-  7"Slightly better," * he announced  "If only the wind would go down, or  even change-to the norrard!"  "What good would a change of  iwind do?" inquired .Pyne, greatly relieved himself by the .change of topic.  "It would beat down the-sea to some  extent aud then they might be able to  cLrift a buoy, with a rope attached,  Jclose enough to the rock at low tide  fto enable us to reach it with a cast  of a grappling iron."  "Do you mean that we could be ferried to the steamer by that means?" i  ��������� "That is absolutely out of the question until the weather moderates to a  far greater extent than I dare hope at  'present. But, once we had the line,  we could rig up a running tackle and  obtain some  stores." j  "Is it as bad as all that?" said the  younger man, after a pause.  They looked at each other. The  jknowlfedge that all true men have oi  their kind leaped from eye to eye.      j  "Quite that bad," answered Brand.    |  Pyne moistened his lips. He produced a case containing two cigars.  He held it out.  "Let us go shares in .consolation,"  he said. ]  Brand accepted the gift, and affected a livelier mood. ;  "By lucky chance  I have an ample  ���������supply of  tobacco.    It will  keep   the'  men quiet,"  he said.    "By the way,"  and he lifted a quick glance at Pyne, |  "do you know anything about chemls-.  try?" I  "Well���������er���������I went through a course,  at Yale."  1 "Can colza oil be converted into  |a food?" J  "It contains certain fats." admitted |  Pyne, taking dubious stock of the:  question.   , j  . "But the process of conversion, the  chemical reaction, that is the difficulty."  "Bi-sulphide of carbon Is a solvent,  and the fatty acids of most vegetable  oils can be isolated by treatment, with  steam super-heated to about 600  degrees Fahrenheit."  Brand threw out his hands with a  little gesture of helplessness; just  then Constance appeared.  "Dad," she cried, "did not Mr. Pyne  tell you of my threat?" |  i "No, dear one. I am not living in  terror of you, to- my knowledge." |  "You must please go to sleep, both  of you, at least until ten or eleven!  o'clock. Mr. Emmett is sending a man|  to.keep watch here.

None of the women dared  vto tell the children the truth, and it  iwas a heart-rending task to deny  them food. .  So, they were permitted to leave  their refuge, with* the kindly belief  that they would come to no harm and  perchance obtain a further supply  from' one of those sweet-faced girls  who explained so gently that the ra-  tions must run short for the common  (good.  Py*e glanced up at the lantern.  Outside he could see Brand hauling  flown the signal. He sprang to the  tray and secured his half biscuit and  tea cup.  ' "Come along, Elsie," he said.Tcrook-  Ing his left arm for her. "Follow close,  Mamie. Mind you don't fall."  ';.

On him since their    last    rencontre.'  She did not know why.  He looked con- j  fused, for one thing:  he: was not so  glib in speech, for another.  7 "Down    where ?"    she    demanded.  "Not to  the  kitchen.      I have been  there since you brought up your breakfast and dad's on the same tray."  "I breakfasted alone," remarked  Brand calmly. "Mr. Pyne had feasted  earlier."      :=  "But he had not," persisted -Constance.   "I wanted him to���������"  She stopped. This impudent American had actually dared to wink at her  a confidential, appealing wink which  6aid plainly: "Please don't trouble  about me."  ! "Yt>u gave your tea and biscuit to  somebody," she cried suddenly. "Now,  Avho was it?   Confess!"  "Well," he said weakly, "I did not  feel���������er���������particularly hungry, . so,  When I met those two littie girls fool-  In' around' for an extra supply, I-r-er���������  thought nobody would mind if���������er���������"  "Father!" said Constance. "He has  Jiot^had^aimquthful."  Then he navigated them to the door  of the second bedroom, where Mrs.  Taylor was. He broke the hard b.s-  cult in two pieces and gave one to  each child.  :   "Here, Mamie, you   carry the cup,  land go shares in the tea.".  .;   "I don't like tea,"protested Mamie.  !"If I can't have coffee 1 want some  milk."  "Then take him downstairs and give  him one. You must have found my  bonversatioh ���������' interesting, Mr. Pyne,  WhilBt I was eating.

Kick  me.     It  will make me feel  good," lie answered.  Entering the second bed-room,  where Elsie and Mamie were seated  contentedly on the floor, she stooped  j and kissed them.   And not a word did  -wards from the kitchen to catch a  glimpse of the reported vessel, she  dropped her glasses for a moment.  "Jack is on board," she announced.  ���������"Of course he would be there. And  there is such a lot of other men���������half  Penzance, I think."

No mere nian can understand, arid a  ivoman of ordinary experience can but  limly imagine, the difficulty and ar-'  auousness of the task undertaken by-  Constance and Enid. ;  To cook,and supply for eighty-one  persons with utensils intended for the'  use of three, to give each- separate in-  lividual an utterly inadequate portion,,  so skilfully distributed that none  should have cause to grumble at his.'  sr her neighbor's better fortune���������here!  were culinary problems at once complex and exhaustive.  By adopting fantastic devices,'  bringing into service empty jam-pots  and sardine-tins, they found it was  possible to feed twenty at a timej  This -meant the preparation of four  distinct, meals, each requiring an;  hour's work. Long before the last'  batch, which included themselves, was',  lamenting the absurd discrepancy between appetite and antidote in the  shape of any thing to eat, the first was:  ravenous again.  , The women complained the least,-  In the occupants of the two bedrooms  the girls encountered a passive forti-;  tude which was admirable. It was an  extraordinary scene which met their  eyes when they entered either of these  stuffy apartments. Many of the rescued ladies had not given a thought to  changing the demi-toilette of evening!  wear on board ship for more service-!  able clothing when the hurricane  overtook the vessel. They all, It Is  true, possessed cloaks or wraps of:  some sort, but these garments were?  still sodden with salt water and there-j  fore unwearable, even if the oppressive warmth in each room rendered,  such a thing possible. Their elegant  costumes of muslin, cotton, silk or sa-i  tin, were utterly ruined. Lucky were  the few whose blouses or bodices had  not been rent into tatters.  Some of the worst sufferers in this  respect were now the best provided.  Blankets and sheets had been ruthlessly torn up and roughly stitched into'  articles of clothing. Mrs.,Vansittart;  for instance, who first suggested this  via media, wore an exquisite Paris  gown and a loose dressing-jacket ar^  rangement of yellow blanket, the comf  ponent parts of which she persuaded  two other women to sew together onj  the model provided by her own elegant;  figure.  A few quick-witted ones who follow-*  ed her example exhausted the availJ  able stock, and pillow-cases and rugs!  would have undergone metamorpho-!  sis in the same way had not Constance,  come to the rescue by impounding  them, declaring that they must be re:  served for the use of; those sufferers  who needed warmth and rest.  The men passed their time in smok-f  ing, singing, yarning and speculating  on the chance of the weather clearing;  Ultimately, when the banging of the|  waves again made the column feel un{  safe, a small section began tb plani  petty attempts to pilfer the provisions.;  It is the queer mixture of philosopher';  and beast in the average human being]  that makes it possible for the same  man, in one mood, to risk his life quitej  voluntarily to save others, and in another, to organize selfish theft.  After an ingenious seaman had been  detected in the. attempt to pick the  store-room lock, and when a tray of  cold ham was deliberately upset  whilst a football scrimmage took place  for the pieces, Mr. Emmett stopped  these ebullitions by arming the watch  with assorted weapons from the workshop and issuing stern orders as to  their use in case of need.  Here, again, the warring elements  which form the human clay were admirably displayed. On duty, under  the bonds of discipline, the coarsegrained foremast hand who had gobbled up a surreptitious lump of fat  pig during the first successful scuffle,  would brain the daring rascal who  tried to better his condition by a similar trick a second time. Discipline,  sometimes, converts a skulker into a  hero.  When the state of the tide pernfit-  ted, storm-shutters were opened and a  free draught of ai'r allowed to enter  through the door. Then all hands  eyed the7 sea with anxiety. The wind  was strong and piercing, and the reef  maintained its ceaseless roaring.  Wherever a window opened towards  the land there was a small crowd  "waitiffg=t6^peepyHrough=itr-'-At-^lastT  the sense of orderliness gradually permeating the inmates of the,lighthouse  actually resulted in the forma!tlon. of  queues, with stated intervals for mov-  Ing^on. There was a momentary relief in looking at the land.- The cliffs,  the solitary white houses, the little  hamlets halt hidden in cozy, nooks,  seemed to be so absurdly near. It was  ridiculous to imagine that help could  long be deferred. The seaward passing of a steamer, carrying flowers  from the Scilly isles to Penzance for  Covent Garden, caused a flutter, but  the sight of a Penzance fishing-smack  scudding under jib and close-reefed  foresail between the rock and Guthen-  bras Point created intense excitement.  Noah, gazing across the flood for the  return of the dove with, the olive  : branch, could not be more pleased  than these castaways in their granite  ark when the brown-sailed boat came  within their view.  The window in the coal-cellar opened fair towards the Land's End, and  the grimy occupants of this compartment could look their fill at the messenger of life. A rich New Yorker  in vain offered a hundred dollars to  any man who gave up his place in the  line after he himself, by the operation  of the time-limit, was remorselessly  sent away from the narrow loop-hole.  Dollars and pounds sterling have a  curiously depreciated value under  such circumstances '!  j'   The men of the watch were always  ! questioned for news by the unemploy-  j ed majority.    They  related the com-  | ings and goings of the Falcon, carried  I sympathetic  inquiries   from   story   to  story���������promiscuous   passing   to    and  fro being forbidden owing to the nar-  !rowness    of    the    stairs���������and   seized  j every trifling   pretext   on their own  part to reach the topmost height and  feast their eyes on the extensive pan-  : orama   visible   from   the    storm-girt  ' gallery.   Had they .watched the coastline less and the reef more their observations would have had value.  j-    Quite  early in the day, the purser  I handed to the occupants of each room  a full list of passengers and crew, with!  'the survivors grouped separately.    In  i only  three   instances   were   husband  land wife both saved.   The awful scene  '' in tbe saloon accounted for this se'em-  ! ing discrepancy.      Dazed    men    and  jsenBeless women were wrenched from  ef,ch other's clasp either by  y |Ke (  e "final  over-  fight for life at the head of the companion stairway.    A wreck, a fire in '  the theatre, pays   little  heed   to  the  marriage tie.  The third and last meal of .the day  was eaten in silence and gloom. All.  the spare lamps were diverted to the  kitchen, because Brand, during a further detailed survey of the stores,  made in company with Mr. Emmett  and the purser, discovered that there  was an alarming deficit of fresh water in the cistern.  In the hurry of the earlier hours a  serious miscalculation had been made  in transmuting cubic feet into gallons.  It became an instant necessity to use  every heating appliance at command  and start the distillation of. a drink-|  able fluid.  (Continued Next Week.)

Hens do not lay as  well in winter as in summer, for reasons' which are now the subjects of  much discussion among experts.  Whether the irregularity in egg laying is due to the coldnes of the air  or to the change of food given the  hons is the point to be determined,  but it is a fact that in comfortable  and suitable quarters hens will lay  almost, if not quite, as well in winter,  provided some summer food has been  stored away for them, and they re-  ,ceive due care.  Whatever food the owner decides  |upon giving his, hens in winter, he  cannot afford-to"overlook the importance of green stuff, which is the egg-  producers' delight all-summer. The  most available and inexpensive green  food for the farmer's poultry is cabbage and turnips. Other roots ancl  vegetables are, perhaps, as good, but  these will be found to "fill the bill."  j They keep the hen hungry and make  her appetite sharp for the drier and  equally  necessary  feed.  It lias been found at the Guelph Experimental Farm, after a series ot  careful experiments, that hens thrive  better and lay better if their drink is  confined entirely to buttermilk. ��������� Water may be said to be good enough  j-for any poultry, but on dairy farms  especially buttermilk is strongly  recommended, as it is generally found  there is plenty and, it takes comparatively little to do a flock.  The dry feed given hens during the  period of winter imprisonment should  be judiciously varied and great care  should be taken to avoid overfeeding  or fattening of the hens. Corn, wheat,  oats and the different grains all have  egg-producing properties, while oats,  being also heat-producing, should be  fed more extensively. Crushed oats  are very desirable as a dry mash.  The Cold-air Hen-house.  In the matter of hen-house construction,  scientific  agriculture has  been  accomplishing some material good in  the last few years.   A large number  of farmers find a place for their poultry in the winter in a portion of the  stable or basement part of the barn.  Others, however, besides "exclusive  poultry-raisers are beginning to find  separate buildings for their fowl, the  hens especially. The latter is unquestionably the better plan, and should  be adopted where such a step is within the farmer's means.  It will be remembered that separate  hen-houses used to be built in such a  way as to keep the air inside as warm  as in the cow or horse stable, and  the majority of such buildings are  still of this type. It, was believed  that in order to make hens' comfortable and keep them laying their home  should be warm. The necessity of  having an abundance of light has  been appreciated by the great army  of-poultry raisers for some,  and the principle has been in practice long enough to substantiate its  wisdom.  But in the matter of temperature  something new has been learned. A  hen-house of the cold-air0 type is now  most strongly recommended. For the  entire length of the building there is  an opening almost a yard wide which  is covered only with poultry' netting,  no glass or thin coyer being put over  it. In the most severe winter, this  opening remains, and the plan of the  building is to keep the interior within three degrees of the outside air.  The house is so constructed, the back  wall being about twice as high as the  side on which the wide opening is,  that the cold air % cannot circulate  through the interior top quickly and  cause a draft. Being somewhat like a  bottle in shape, the circulation of the  air through it is much on the principle of blowing into a bottle, where  it is a known fact 7 that the air  breathed in is very slow in finding its  way out. The cold air coming into  the hen-house cannot rush out again,  but moderates in the building and  keeps on a gradual move.  Straw should be kept on the floor  of the hen-house all the time, as it  protects the hens' feet and absorbs  all moisture. When the air Is kept  cool inside the fowl have to more  about considerably to keep warm,  which provides ample opportunity for  exercise and prevents them from get  ting too fat. Experts have been some  time arriving at this stage of fresh-  air hen-house. A curtain hung over  an open window was believed to be  an extreme view,' but proving successful, the experimenters gave the  open window a test. They found it  was the best plan, both in maintaining a good general health among the  tow! and  in  producing eggs.  Fattening for Market.  KEELER'S NURSERY  Rose Bushes  1, 2 and 3 years old.

Cor 15th Ave. & Main St.  PHONE : Fairmont 817R  Those who raise a considerable  quantity Of poultry for fall selling  should recognize the importance of  fattening quickly before marketing.  It has been found by some of the  largest raisers, and the statement is  upheld by the leading agricultural  colleges, that from eighteen to twenty-one days of scientific feeding will  add between one and two pounds to  the weight of each bird. The fowl  should be cooped und given little  space or opportunity for exercise.  A batter of equal parts of cornmeal,  wheat middlings and low-grade flour  mixed in buttermilk given exclusively  three times a day has proven a fat-  producer. Another mixture that is  recommended strongly is two parts of  ground oats, one part of ground buckwheat, and one part low-grade flour  stired in buttermilk to a pancake batter. 7  v..\'.  The fourth year students in poultry  at the O.A.C. are required to coop a  number of birds and fatten them for  two weeks by forced feeding of a  buttermilk batter of the above nature,  DR.

Situated at 2401 Main Street, on the  corner o������ Eighth avenue there is one  of the largest and most splendidly  stocked stores of its kind in the city,  the Mount Pleasant Dry Goods House,  of which Mr. F. A. Bingham is the  owner and manager. Mr. Bingham  has been established on Mount Pleasant for a period of four years, and a  resident ten years. Prior to moving  into his present quarters Mr. Bingham occupied a smaller store on Main  street, nearly opposite the magnificent establishment iri which he now  conducts a great dry goods business.  The story of Mr. Bingham's advance  and progress in this city is unique  and interesting. A native o Canada,  Mr. Bingham decided to merge his  personal interests with those of the  West. Four:years ago when he started business on Main street, Mount  Pleasant had scarcely begun to grow  and expand to its present wonderful  area of numerous and well kept, prosperous homes. Mr. Bingham's step  at that time was a Bomewhat venturesome one, but he had unlimited  confidence in Mount Pleasant's com-  I in triumph as the result of rigid adherence to honest business principles'.  This gentleman is a man of desirable  type and his success is a pleasure to  his many friends on Mount Pleasant  and in ������outh Vancouver.  N. LANG & CO.  A Leading Vancouver Electrical Fixtures Company.  A firm that plays a part of prominence in relieving the city of darkness is that of Messrs. N. Lang & Co.,  dealers in high grade electrical fixtures of all kinds. The firm has been  in operation for a period of six years  and are now established at 2442 Main  street. Mr. Lang has personally followed his present occupation for the  past fifteen years and is an expert in  his line.  Messrs. Lang & Co. have installed  handsome fixtures in several well-  known, public buildings, hotels and  apartment houses throughout the city,  among them being Washington Court,  Lighthart Bros.' Apartments, Gustaf-  son building, the Woods, Atlantic and  Cecil hotels, and a number of other  buildings top numerous to mention.  WM.  R. OWEN.  Few firms enjoy more popularity  ing greatness and so he proceeded to than that of Messrs. Lang & Co.  established his business. Subsequent Their popularity is widespread and  events have proven the accuracy of well  deserved, and  speaks    volumes  his judgment and the soundness of his  commercial foresight and logic.  The Mount Pleasant Dry Goods  House is a favored institution. It is  heavily stocked with the season's  newest and most highly approved  goods of exceptional quality. These  features, together with alluring prices,  prompt service and courteous treatment of the public have made for Mr.  Bingham's success. That he is a successful merchant is demonstrated in  the fact that Mr. Bingham, ro'ma  modest beginning has established a  huge store in which it is necessary to  employ seventeen clerks in order to  handle the business of a large and  rapidly growing number of patrons.  Mr. Bingham has followed the dry  goods business for twenty-four years.  He has a wide grasp and knowledge  of the business from every angle and  is particularly well fitted to successfully conduct a fine business like that  of the Mount Pleasant Dry Goods  House.  Mr. Bingham's path has not always  been one of roses.   He has encount-  for the firm's ability and the merit of  theii goods. A very large and we!]  chosen stock is carried at 2442 Main  street and this interesting store is  certainly worthy of a visit.  MERILEES' GROCERY.  A Splendid Mt. Pleasant Store.  In referring to the retail establishments of Mt. Pleasant we point with  pride to the above named flourishing  grocery store. It is situated on Main  street, near the corner of Eleventh,  and is conducted by Mr. Merilees, a  native of Scotland, and his two enterprising sons, Robert and J. F., the  latter being a Canadian by :��������� birth, and  the former coming to Canada when he  was one year and a half old. These  gentlemen have operated at their present location for nearly one year aud a  half. Prior to this period they followed the same business between  Tenth and Eleventh avenue for sometime. They carry a complete line of  groceries of all kinds, also, flour and  provisions. The Merilees are live, enterprising business men and highly esteemed' citizens.    ���������,    "_,,:, i C  A  Leading  Mount Pleasant Citizen.  Associated to no smal extent with  the upbuilding of Mount Pleasant and  South Vancouver is Mr. Wm. R. Owen,  hardware merchant, whose fine place  of business is prominently situated at  2337 Main street.. Mr. Owen has a  splendidly equipped store embracing a  full and complete line of shelf and  heavy hardware. of all descriptions,  stoves, ranges, kitchen utensils,  paints, oils and glass as'well as an  unusually fine assortment of mechanics' tools and builders' hardware and  supplies. Few retail stores are more  heavily stocked, and Mr. Owen's goods  are chosen with care and discrimination, indicating an ability to judge  quality that can be acquired only by  long years of experience and close application to one's business.  Mr. Owen has followed the vocation  of hardware merchant for the past  ten years and is possessed of an excellent knowledge of the business.  For many years he has studied hard--  ware in all of its numerous phases  and is therefore well equipped to conduct a business of the proportions  now attained by that of which he is  the owner and manager.  Mr. Owen is a native Canadian, and  has been a resident of Vancouver for  the past fourteen years. He is and  has been for several years a worthy  citizen of public spirit and enterprise  and has always figured prominently  in affairs and movements affecting  the best interests of the community  at large. Mr. Owen has officiated as  president of the Conservative Association in his own constituency, a position which he most creditably filled.  In civic affairs Mr. Owen is also  widely known as a public man, being  a member of the Park Commission.  He is an ardent exponent of the City  Beautiful and in this respect has  given freely to the public much valuable time and attention.  Men of this stamp, men who are  keenly interested in public affairs and  striving to do the duties of citizenship  pre very desirable. Their presence  in any community is an asset and Mt.  Pleasant is fortunate in numbering  among her public men a gentleman of  Mr. Owen's stamp. He is a man who  accepts the right view of important  questions and issues and it is a genuine pleasure for the Call to pass fa-  B. C. CAFE.  A Wholesome, Well Kept Restaurant.

Communications respecting items  of news, meetings of societies, clubs,  etc., for this column should be forwarded not later than Tuesday morning, addressed "Western Call," P. O.  Box 10, Cedar Cottage.  The new municipal hall, on the corner of Wilson Road and Fraser avenue;  is now completed and is certainly a  most creditable addition to South  Vancouver. Spacious and well lighted offices are provided for each of  the several departments, whilst the  council chamber on the first floor is  excellently adapted for its purpose,  being both commodious and well  lighted.  At the (last meeting of the Board  of Works-the clerk to the council,  Mr. J. B. Springfield, solicited the  wishes of the Board with regard to  the formal opening of the hall. The  Board with the exception of Mr. Burgess were heartily in favor of a public house warming and-instructed the  clerk to go ahead with the arrangements for a banquet on Thursday,  Nov. 2nd. The sum of $500 was voted  for expenses and the clerk was instructed to provide a silver key for  the opening ceremony to be performed  by the Hon. Richard M cBride, the  premier.  Attorney General Mr. Bowser and  the Hon. Dr. Young, Minister of Edu-  Mrs. Betdn, a negress residing at  Cedar Cottage, asked for help in the  purchase of creature comforts.- In  this case it appeared that the council  had previously ordered an allowance  of $10 monthly, but the matter had  been overlooked except by the poor  woman. The health inspector, Mr.  Pengelly, was instructed to look into  the question and report to next meeting. AI ean while' what about the poor  woman?  /  Councillor John B. Macdonald . has  been . served, together with the reeve  and'council, with notices on behalf of  Mrs. Emma Gold, protesting against  the said councillor being allowed to.  vote at meetings of the council. "The  intention of these notices," says Mr.  Geo. H. Cowan, counsel for Mrs. Gold,  "is to render the reeve tind council  liable to be surcharged with moneys  Mrs. Gold claims to have been illegally spent, provided of course, that the  charges are proved, whilst in that  event Mr. Macdonald would also be  liable to a fine of $2500 for sitting or  voting on the council after June loth."  In answer to a further question Mr.  Cowan stated that "a councillor becomes automatically disqualified by an  illegal action directly it is committed,  but any notice of the kind to be effective must be followed by an action  in the courts." '  Mr. Macdonald announces his inten  tion of disregarding the protest as he  cation, are to be. invited to this inter-; claims he had no interest in the con-  esting event, whilst other guests will j tract mentioned.

The only difficulty arose over the  question of liquid refreshments, Councillor Burgess putting up a very strong  protest in opposition to the liquor and  especially against the introduction of  champagne. On the vote he was the  only one against the proposal. No  vegetarian suggestions were mooted,  so that it is probable that the other  items of the feast will be of the ordinary character.  lots for their fill. Those lots are mine  but were not specified in the contract  as the place from which the borrow  was to be made. The contract simply  specifies the property between two  streets." As to the claim that money  has ben illegally spent out of contingency funds for streets provided for  by by-law six, Mr. Macdonald states:  "The contingency funds were provided  for other street purposes, meaning for  purposes other than those specified in  the by-law."  The official quarters of the 'municipality are now all comfortably (established in the new hall to the great  satisfaction of all concerned. The  School Board are to be allowed the  use of a portion of the old premises  when removed and the .council propose  to utilize the other part for storage  purposes.

Mr. R. C. Hodgson, chairman  of the Board of Trade, has been approached on. the matter but as yet  has not announced any decision. Mr.  McBride of Eburne has announced his  intention to stand for reeye, whilst  it is considered highly probable that  the Ratepayers' Association may pre-,  vail upon Mr. T. A.

Mr. Taylor of Cedar Cottage is a  claimant against the council for loss  incidental to a broken collar bone. He  seelts compensationsor4oss-of ..wages,  for eight weeks' compulsory rest and  medical attention.  Mr. Taylor informed the chairman  in the course of his examination that  he had fallen Into a municipal ditch  whilst endeavoring to rescue a lady  who had fallen down as they were  both emerging, from a church on WeBt:  minster Road about 9 p.m. on the evening of Sunday, Aug. |K������th. Evidence  was submitted to sho^ that no warning lights were on the ditch in question on that night. The matter was  referred to the chairman and engineer.  The police habe had reported to  them a burglary that took place last  Friday afternoon at the residence ot  Mr. J. M. Fox, corner of Victoria Road  and Wilson Road. His house door  was opened with a skeleton key and  some coin and a revolver stolen. So  far the police have no clue.

Qvens  on Wales Road was entirely consumed  by'fire on Friday, 27th of October.  The building, a log structure, was  completely burned down in a few  minutes and the fire department, it is  stated, allege they were unable to  render any assistance owing to the  impassable condition of the roads.  Mr. Ovens was away(.at the time and  his^_wifeahad^gone,pjut^for jajewvmin^  home. Fortunately they escaped unharmed. The damage amounts to over  $1300 and includes everything the  owner possessed���������house, furniture and  money.  The question of surveying all the  trunk roads of the municipality, especially those which had been widened,  again came up for consideration. Action in the latter cases Is especially  urgent as deeds of transfer could not  be registered for property, part of  which had been given to the municipality for road purposes until a new  survey had been made. It was recognized, however, that this would necessarily involve a large sum of money  and the engineer was accordingly requested to first report upon the cost  of the undertaking.

The,  affair was arranged ln honor of Mr.  Graham, who has, recently resigned  his position as principal of the Lord  Selkirk school to accept that of municipal inspector of schools in South  Vancouver. Miss Katherine McArdle,  on behalf or Mr. Graham's former  staff and the friends who had planned  the surprise party, made-the presentation, a handsome oak desk. They expressed their regret at losing his  leadership, but rejoiced that he was  accepting work in a sphere of even  greater usefulness.

(From Our Own Correspondent.)  Montreal, Oct. 4.���������As a result of a  novel decision just rendered here by  one of the city's magistrates, epicures  and chefs have been throAvn into a  panic, while" the keepers of hotels and  restaurants are confronted with the  possibility of having to rearrange their  menus and bills of fare along lines  which according to present methods  would be simply idotic. ..The decision  to cause all this excitement is to the  effect that the cucumber is a fruit  within the meaning of the law. In  reaching this opinion the learned  judge apparently disregarded the well-  known Mr. Webster of dictionary  fame, who notes that the succulent  promoter of indigestion has been cultivated as a vegetable "since the days  of Moses." A city magistrate, however, reasons from the analogy of the  watermelon and others of its class  thato anything growing on a0 vine is  a fruit. His decision, therefore, elevates the pumpkin, squash, tomato,  egg plant and even the lowly gourd  from the vegetable to the fruit class.  The question came up in the interpretation of the law requiring sellers  of fruits and various other articles to  have a license from the city. If the  decision is to be generally accepted it  will involve a rearrangement of hotel  menus so that pumpkins and egg  plants may be placed along with can-  teloupe among the pre-breakfast delicacies on the bill of fare. It is pointed out that some other judge is likely  to be called upon to wrestle with the  problem of whether peanuts and potatoes are fruits since these also  grow on vines, though not above the  surface.  LIGHTNING RODS AND LIGHTNING  The subject of lightning and lightning protection has received comparatively less attention in Canada than  in any of the higher civilized nations.  Its seriousness has never been disputed, but the people generally look  upon it as unpreventable, and have  been content to "take chances" on  its ever doing them any personal  harm. In many parts of the United  States and European countries the  matter has been studied extensively  and insurance companies are giving  materially better rates in cases whore  the buildings insured have ample  lightning protection. One company  in the United States has been organized to insure rodded buildings exclusively, and with a sum total of  ������9,000,00 in risks has not had to meet  any claims in cases of buildings being  destroyed by fire. In Canada, on the  contrary, there is not an insurance  company recognizing the value of  lightning rods on a building, and indeed some claim to be not convinced  that, lightning rods are in any sense  beneficial.  Prevention   Not   Understood.  The skepticism is no doubt due in  a large measure to the fact that many  buildings equipped with rods have^met  with disaster, and that the principle  of lightning rods do not claim that  a rod on a building, although properly installed���������as many of them are not  ���������insures that building forever against  lightning.

Various methods are recommended for  breaking the hen of the egg-eating  habit, but expert opinion is pretty  well agreed that to feed a hen enough  eggshells until'she becomes sick of  the sight of them is as effective a cure  as can be prescribed. As the habit is  formed, undoubtedly, from hens being  fed eggshells, many have avoided letting them have any, and in consequence eggshells have remained a  rare delicacy to them. The wiser  plan seems to be the one mentioned.  Care should be taken to see that  there is always plenty of lime and  gravel available.  unusual demonstration of its value  here this week. R short time ago a  loft in the wholesale district was  broken into and $8000 worth of loot  was carried away. In looking-over  the ground the next day the central  oflice detectives found some finger  prints vin the dust which covered an  empty and unused showcase in the  rear of the establishment. Evidently:  the burglar had put his hand against  it while groping about the place. This  was the only clue that could be  found. The show case was taken to  police headquarters, the finger prints  were photographed, and experts of  the department began comparing it  with all the other records in their  possession. At length an identical  set of prints was found. They had  been taken from a man arrested for  burglary oyer three years ago. Detectives were set on the man's trail,  he was arrested and this week the  grand jury indicted him on the mute  evidence afforded by the careless  placing of his hand on the dusty show  case. . So important is the Bertillion  system of identification considered  that a school has just been started at  police headquarters here in0 which  detectiyes are being jnsti^cted^not  only-in the art of identifying finger  prints, but also in the observation of  distinguishing marks about the nose,  ears and other physiagnomical- details regarded as of scientific value in  -identifying 'criminals. This: school is  under the direction of Captain Faurot  who" has just returned from studying  the system as it is used in Paris. The  students are all the detectives of the  central oflice force.  Wealthy Beggars.  That the income of a really first-  class beggar exceeds that of most  skilled labol-ers, ranging from five to  eight dollars a vay, is the testimony  of Montreal's cleverest feminine, mendicant who according to her own  showing has been extracting more  than $3000 a year from the pockets of  passers-by. All that is needed is a  location on a prominent street and  the proper employment of professional wiles. Any sort of physical affliction likely to arouse sympathy, is the  chief7 requisite and if nature or accident has neglected to furnish the  malformation there are plenty of ex^  perts who can counterfeit such afflictions for business purposes, during  working hours. As there are several  persons in Montreal who make begging  their regular profession, to say nothing of the many more thousands who  indulge in it occasionally, it is estimated that the toll which they extort  every year runs well into the millions.

CEDAR COTTAGE AND  SOUTH VANCOUVER  Last Thursday the new, municipal  hall became transformer from a centre  of municipal activity to one of music,  feast and congratulation. About 125  guests selected by an unknown process sat down to an entertainment  costing, the municipality $500, or ?4  per visitor. The distinguished visitors were: Mayor Taylor, Reeve  Weart of Burnaby, Dr. Elliott S. Rowe,  Reeve Pound, Alderman Enright and  R. C. Hodgson of the South Vancouver  Board . of Trade. Premier McBride,  Attorney-General Mr. Bowser and ; Mr.  II. II. Stevens, M.P., did not attend,  nor was any excuse tendered for. their  absence. Rev. Merton Smith presided,  a survivor of one of the "Indignant  Sixty" against the government, and  South Vancouver annexation last  spring. Included amongst the guests  were all the clerical staff members of  the fire brigade ancl police, and also  Mr. McBride of Eburne, candidate for  reeve, aIany congratulatory speeches  were made by the mayor of Vancouver, Mayor McNeish of North Vancouver Reeve McNaught of North Vancouver and Reeve Bowser of Point  Grey. Reeve Pound, in proposing the  toast of South Vancouver municipality, was not modest in describing the  merits of his own district nor the council ot whom many virtues were to be  ascribed. The new hall now houses  27 employees, where in 1907 one man  sufficed. (Perhaps the reeve may pardon the correction that in 1907 there  were three men employed and had to  work overtime, too). Numerous other  toasts followed, and not till after midnight did the fear of the last car stem  the eloquent exaggeration of South  Vancouver's merits and force the visitors to the realization of a B. C. E.  Ry. control of their social events by  its limited services.  The conference between the council  and the presidents and members of  the Ratepayers' Associations arranged  for Monday last at the Municipal Hall  did not take place. Reeve Pound,  Messrs. T. Dickie, R. C. Hodgson, J. C.  McArthur, Stuart Campbell and one  or two others attended, and as the  meeting was too small, it was decided  to adjourn till next Monday.  The resignation of Mr. J. B. Macdonald as councillor for Ward HI. has  occasioned considerable interest and  excitement in that ward, as no one  had the least inkling of the event.  Pretty general regret is expressed at  Mr. Macdonald's retirement, as it is  well recognized that the ex-councillor  displayed an active and business-like  attention to the ward's requirements.  Two candidates have announced  their intention of running for the vacancy, viz., Mr. G. H. Batcheler and  Mr. Martin of the People's Trust Co.  val street and Knight road. Present  conditions are a disgiace, and any  active supervision on the part of the  B. C. E. Ry. would have known this  long since.

It may be  appropriate perhaps to say "comment  is needless."  The municipal stables are to be  placed on the western side of the municipal grounds on a 75-foot strip running from 43rd to 45fh avenue.  The council passed two resolutions  relating to the improvement of Ifraser  avenue, one to the effect that a committee be appointed to wait on the  B. C. E.

The Contra! Park Citizens' Band  are making every effort to attain success both musically and financially.  In aid of the funds the services of the  Dramatic Society of the A. Y. P.

The  proceeds are to be shared between the  band and the dramatic society.  K. German, employed by a Central  Park store, came very near to losing  his life last week. Driving a delivery  rig on Wednesday when crossing the  Joyce road, he failed to notice the near  approach of a Westminster car, which  struck the rig, smashing it and fortunately throwing both driver and  horses clear off the track. German  was picked up insensible and grave  fears were entertained as to his re  covery, but he is now reported out of  danger. The rig was badly smashed,  but the horses escaped any serious  injury." -.-','. '7..

H. Sperling of  the B. C. E. Ry. at the last council  meeting. According to Mr. Sperling,  the line already constructed is not on  a paying basis. And neither is it on  a business basis, for although supposed to be a 10-minute service, that is  only a supposition and may vary from  15 to 20 minutes. Frequently when a  car just ahead might accept transfer  passengers at Knight road for Victoria  road destinations, they wait.  More outdoor supervision of this line  is needed, and until that is arranged  matters may continue in their present  unsatisfactory condition. For instance,  why does the present double track terminate midway between Knight road  and Percival street. At this point passengers are required to choose between alighting in a sea of mud or  remaining in the car for an indefinite  period. As the B.'C. E.
