 SUBSCRIPTION $1 A YEAR  IN ADVANCE  Published in the Interests of Greater Vancouver.  VOLUME III  H. H. Stevens, Editor.  VANCOUVER, British Columbia, OCTOBER 27, 1911.  No. 25  MAIN STREET  The Dividing Line of Population in a  Great City; Brief Mention of the  Leading Business Men and Enterprises Operating from l'6th Ave.  to the Fraser River Road,  Time w.ns when it was .called "Westminster  Avenue," but some prophetic soul discerning its  coming greatness and commercial importance,  succeeded by dint of judicious agitation and sound  logic in having the name changed to "Main  Street." Jt was a shrewd move and whoever was  responsible must be a man gifted wilh a level head  and remarkable foresight. The chances are that  he also bought up a nice lot of Main Street property and if he did it is no wild guess to say that  such a man is now of immense wealth.  ���������About nine years ago there wasn't much to  Main Street north of False Creek except the  bridge, a couple of hotels, the aged and venerable  city hall and a few small mercantile establishments. Then things began to change. . The eity  was growing faster than a trust manipulator's  "bank roll. What to do with the people was the  problem.  If the city spread westward the growth of  necessity would be limited and the West End had  already been pretty well settled for a number of  years before Vancouver's growth became so  phenomenal. In the opposite or easterly direction  the trail leads to New Westminster, but very few  Vancouverites'care to go-quite that far unless it  is to lift the Minto Cup or watch Bill Miner break  .jail or to witness the inadequacy of a bank vault as  was demonstrated recently in the removal of  some three million real dollars from the aforesaid  and alleged strong box. Maybe it wasn't quite  three million, but anyway there is an official  statement to the effect that some three hundred  thousand odd dollars were lured from what was  fondly believed to be a secure abiding place.  Ou the north of the city lay. Burrard Inlet and  beyond that an ambitious community of very  new buildings straggling upward into various  nooks and corners of Grouse Mountain and other  noted peaks. Now nobody wants to go to North  Vancouver badly enough to. swim and .the ferry  system between the two cities is just about taxed  to capacity and then some at the present time.  Naturally then, the only   remaining   direction  open to persons clamoring for homes lies to the  south and right here is where Ave get back to Main  Street, erstwhile Westminster Avenue.   Approxi-  Tmately Main Street runs from north to south directly through the centre of the city.   Geographically it is   the   logical   .avenue   of   trade   and  'commerce/   Unfortunately-  however, until quite  recently the people of Vancouver did not seem to  realize this fact nor its significance.   But   things  -are-..different' now and what was once believed to  be a Main Street flurry has proven to be nothing  f but a steady though rapid rise in values consistent  with real worth.  Main Street extends for about six miles   from  ^> Burrard Inlet on the north, to the Fraser river  km the south-   Burrard Inlet is alive with shipping  arid great .vessels from all over the world ride at  anchor in the harbor or dock at the foot of Main  'street:   On the south there is the Fraser river. At  present -various municipalities are working^in conjunction with the federal and provincial govern-  I'nients to prepare,the Fraser river as a great fresh  water harbor.   The plan has   been   pronounced  feasible by expert engineers and that a fresh water  Hharbor is economically ��������� preferable to great, expensive dry docks is indisputable.   Therefore, it  must be apparent that land adjacent to the Fraser  river is even now of. wonderful but none the less  f\real value.   In a very short space of time values  will be doubled, trebled and quadrupled.  Realizing the truth and accuracy of the   foregoing the wise investors are now buying heavily  of what is known as South Vancouver property,  d namely that portion of the city extending southward to the Fraser river.   Main Street lies in the  very heart of this rich area and try as it will the  i-eity. cannot possibly avoid or evade a growth from  least and west to a common meeting place and that  'place is Main Street.   It is inevitable, positive and  eertain and so it is that Main Street is now gaining recognition, long deferred, but at last gained.  At present these is being erected on the corner  [of Hastings and Main Streets a huge office building ten stories in height.   This great structure is  ith^ first modern skyscraper, but well founded ru-  flmor has it that several others are planned   for  J ������arly erection.   There are now a number of other  rsinaher but handsome business blocks, fine hotels  1 and theatres on Main Street and even a blind man  kihay observe, for though he cannot see he can at  [least hear the pleasant music of hammer and saw,  the jangling rattle of steel rivetters and other evidences of growth and activity.  Main Street is truly a live one and already old  timers are beginning to say;,  "Why five years ago I could have bought a  Icertairi lot for a thousand dollars."  The wise man, however, never talks of what  jjrnight have been. Instead he sizes up the situation and determines .what he can do now! Then  |he does it. y  (Continued on Page 4)  *********************������l~l**********^  V 4  * i  f  ���������  Y  Y  A BIG PROBLEM IMPORTANT  TO VANCOUVER  L\  %  IMMENSE  *  POSSIBILITIES���������GREAT NEED OF EXPERT ATTENTION-  NO TIME TO BE LOST.  J The subject of harbor development is occupying a place in the public  ������ eye at this time.   The civic authorities of the city and all contiguous municipali-  ? ties, together with the various Boards of Trade, have "taken "the  matter  up,  thus 1  J ensuring earnest consideration at least. -  ��������� The Port of Vancouver should include all that district between the north '.'.  g si lore of Burrard Inlet to the south bank of the Fraser River.   It is true that New !!  ��������� Westminster claims particular control of the south arm of the Fraser and are a '.'.  | little jealous of tbe constant reference to the whole district as "Greater Vancouver."

We believe that if wre ; *  * of the lower mainland unite in an effort to secure recognition from the Dominion |  ���������| that it will result in the greatest impetus that B. C. has ever had and will place us $  in a favorable position to compete with the other great ports of the Pacific for a fair $  share of the traffic which will result from the opening of the Panama canal. f  In the first place let us get thoroughly seized of this fact that Nature  has ������  given us one of the best harbours in the world, but let us also remember that man $  | has done nothing, as yet, to develop that harbour, or to make it into a port. There %  | is a grave danger on our part, as citizens, of remembering the former and neglect- ������  ing the latter.   We undoubtedly have the facilities but they must be developed along %  scientific lines.  Therefore it seems reasonable to assume that the first step is to appoint  a  small commission to investigate the whole matter and report on  some  scheme of  1 permanent development, and all future expenditures should be on work which will ������  X be a part of tlie whole scheme.. y ������  ������ It would be the duty of such a commission to decide where to commence and, $  ^ to just what extent improvements should be carried on, also fo investigate the  1 condition of the regulations of this port and the need of improvements in this line.  | One thing which would be imperative would be the assistance of an expert on har-  t hour construction, one whose authority and reputation is world-wide. . '  $ This commission of investigation should be appointed by the Dominion auth-  X orities and not by the, local municipalities as-y.igfgested..,by some. In fact, the I  $ joint meeting the other day accepted the suggestion and have passed a resolution *  X accordingly. ' '' " . %  * If at the coming session of the new parliament such a commission could be *jj  Jj appointed it would mean a very decided and advanced step toward the consunmia- f  % tion of this great movement. *  JS ' There is one outstanding danger in launching such schemes and that is the f  ? tendency of local interests to pull for their particular section and thus defeat or *  jj. confuse the whole.   We are firmly convinced that it is the duty of the various sec- |  tions to co-operate by supplying all possible data regarding tlie requirements of  their districts, but to refrain from adverse criticisms of other sections or any section which would -Wise a diA'ision.   A difference of appeal will often   defeat   tlie  very object we are seeking to attain and in this'case we should have one object,  viz., the development of this great port of the lower mainland and leave to the commission and the government the decision of its ultimate form. j  This Avould not necessarily mean that any section would be entirely neglected ������  or that improvements would not be made along certain lines.   There are four sec- |  tions to this harboiir���������-first, Burrard .I^et;^^n^_Fd^_Cr_eek; third, Nortli Arm_f  T?rira^Br^^ X  No one will question the imperative necessity of widening the First, Nar- J  rows, no matter what else may be done, nor will there be objection to clearing out ������  the waterway into False Creek, or in making the North Arm navigable, or in pro- $  viding against the blocking of the main channel of the Fraser.  Each one of these .sections has a distinct function and wiiile a great scheme  would modify or change these in degree, it can never abolish them. The main arm  i of the Fraser mws������ be kept open tp allow shipping to proceed up the river to New  | Westminster, just as the Nortli Arm is .becoming increasingly necessary to coasting t  traffic, aiid False Creek is becoming the mecca for light draught shipping and X  Burrard Inlet a great center for rapid transit service, all have their peculiars  function which may be developed or extended, but which should not be forced into *  unequal competition with each other, but to "work in unison to obtain the desired |  end. %  We cannot close this without a reference to the -work of Mr. Keefer of New |  Westminster, the engineer representing the government. It must not be assumed |  | that he has been asleep, for on the contrary he is a veritable mine of information t  on these subjects and will be of great assistance to the commission when appointed, f  When suggesting the securing an expert of world-wide reputation it was with no ������  intention of casting any reflection on the department or Mr. Keefer, but in matters ������  of this magnitude men of the widest experience and highest ability should be se- t  cured and no doubt such a person would gladly accept of the assistance arid great ?���������  fund of information which men such as Mr. Keefer;must have. ^  **������i^w.'******<******i^a^^  VOTERS' LIST.  According to the Provincial Elections Act a  court of revision is to be held each half year to  revise the voters' list, and at these courts names  of deceased and absentee voters are removed.  The act calls for the publication of the list of objections in the publie press, which, under ordinary  occasions, would be a comparatively small matter, but this year over 6000 names have been objected to, thus making it an expensive operation.  The public should know that over 4600 of these  objections were filed by the Liberal organization  of thus city, and apparently have been chosen  without any grounds whatsoever. Immediately  on the publication of the list in the "Call" we  were inundated with questions why voters were  being struck off. These voters are residents and  voted at the last election, and there is no reason  whatever why they should be removed. It  would appear as if there was a deliberate attempt  to strike off the list a large number of active  voters; such a^eourse is unpardonable. One thing  is certain, that!7 the Liberal organization is suffering from a severe attaek of bitter envy, and made  these 4600 objections simpl yto make trouble and  to give grounds for objecting to. the costs, etc.  As stated, under ordinary circumstances the  cost is small, but such wholesale idiotic objections  as those filed by the Liberal organization makes it  a costly job. To illustrate our contention that it  is simply a deliberate attempt to make trouble, we  received a marked copy of the "C^l" returned  to us with the words written across it: "How do  you like graft." "We leave the public to judge  who are the guilty parties, this unnamed slanderer and his Liberal friends who made the reckless wholesale objections, or those who are complying with the law.  READER, look over the list and see that your  name is not being struck off. Protect your franchise.  By Professor E. Odium, M.A.B., Sc.  3710 Grant St.   Oct. 16, 1911.  One of tlie most important problems of the day  is that of finding out in any given community, or  nation, just what is wanted by the people. So  many voices are heard asking aud demanding exactly opposite things that the civic, provincial and  federal legislators are unable to discover the real  desire of those for whom they would legislate.  When an election comes along there are usually -  two, three or more parties all claiming legislative  methods largely at variance, and the men who are  elected have serious doubt when they are appointed to positions of trust by the electorate, aa  s to what is the desire and intent of their constituencies. At times, but very seldom, some great  question comes before the people and the yotes  are polled pro and eon with an undoubted result,  and easily understood demand. But this is the  exception, not the rule. Now, if we could approximate a method by,which we,might speak to our  legislators by a fairly unanimous voice, we indeed would have gained considerable success and  real headway.  The opposing aud contrary demands of the  various political parties can seldom result in a  clear ancl easily perceived command to the.men  who are laden with the burden of making laws  and finding the means for giving them effect.  I have a proposition that in all probability will  commend itself to a goodly number of intelligent  citizens.  Boards of Trade.  Boards of Trade are usually non-political. Thia  is right and necessary for success. In Vancouver  there is. a well-organized Board of Trade. It is  doing good work for the public in many ways.  But there is room for great improvement, as all.  who know the truth will allow.  Perhaps the membership of our Board of Trade  is about three hundred. It stands to reason that  neither thex City Council nor the Provincial Government would be influenced by the resolutions  passed by such a number as by, say, a Board of  Trade composed of a thousand, or two thousand  members. This is the object I have in view in  writing this short article.  I am sure that the present members who have  done very much valuable work in past years, and  especially those of them who may be called "the  .stand-bys," would be delighted if a large addition were made in the way of new members. Iu  fact I know that they are anxious that this should  take place. So far as I can see, they have done  their duty in this respect, and would be glad if in  auy way they could increase the numbers of those  who would take an active part in the deliberations of such subjects as come properly before  the Board.  Now, what seems a proper thing to do is to  call the attention of the citizens of Vancouver to  _the_necc_ssit.v of increasedJntercst _in_this, on_e_of_  the most valuable institutions iu the city and  province.  On behalf of the Vancouver Board of Trade, I  hereby urge upon our public-spirited citizens to  come over and help us. There is room aud need  for your help. "With an addition of, say, 700 new  names to our membership rolls, we would have au  influence and a usefulness far beyond anything  possible with a number so limited as at present.  Here would be one of the most valuable phases  of a membership, increased as above suggested.  There would be scarcely au organization of any  sort iu Vancouver that would not have among its  members one or more of this Board. Thus every  matter of public importance affecting any organized body of men would at once fiud its easy  and natural way to the Board of Trade. This  body would be able to act more quickly, effectively, and directly than at present willi its limited number.  Suppose the City Council or yie Provincial Legislature were approached by a delegation representing such a largely distributed body of men,  concerning any matter of. public and pressing interest, would there not. be a more ready attention,  given as the first result?  And it stands'to reason that any legislative  body would be better pleased to have delegations  truly representative, than those of a more limited  nature.  Herein lies the strength of my claim, of'.our  claim, of the claim of the public, upon those who-  might, nay, ought to find time to join this very  important and representative body .of. men.".  I shall say no more, .but shall look with increased interest to the public to do just that kind  of work by joining) which they are and will be  unable to do otherwise. And in addition they  will give to those already in harness a strength,  help, and influence they cannot have without such  an addition to their ranks.

Of this appalling incident those in the lighthouse  imew nothing until long afterwards. '  j When the ship struck, the electric  dynamos stopped and all her lights  jwent out. The lighthouse lamp owing  jto its rays being concentrated by the  dioptric lens, helped not at all, to dissipate the dim and ghastly vision be-!  Seath, but the great frame of the fore1  art of the vessel served as a breakwater to some extent, and temporarily  withheld' the waves from beating  against the column.     0  Hence Brand, straining his eyes  'through the flying ruck, fancied he  jcould make out the figure of the captain as he left the bridge, and, with  ���������pine of the crew, took shelter behind  ������he structure of the library and state  cabins on what remained of the prom  ������nade deck.. At the same moment the  (frenzied occupants of the library and  gangway contrived to burst open the  jfloorTof the matin companion.  i If they had to die they might as  ���������well die in the open and not boxed up  In impenetrable darkness. As a matter of fact, the bolts were forced by a  ���������man who fired his revolver at "them.  fThe sea quickly discovered this ������new  putlet.

Down he went. Without waitings  Brand and the girls hauled lustily a*  the rope. It was no child's play toj  hoist a heavy pulley and several nun-,  dred feet of stout cordage. More than,  once they feared the first thin rope;  would break, but It was good hemp,  and soon the block was hooked to thej  strong iron stanchions of the railing.  To make assurance doubly sure,!  Brand told Enid to take several turns  of the spare cord around the hook and  the adjacent rails.  Meanwhiie( Constance and he saw!  that the rope was moving through the  pulley without their assistance. Then  through the whirling scud beneath  they made out an ascending figure  clinging to it. .Sopn'he was close to  the gallery. Catching him by arms  and collar they lifted him into safety.  He was one of the junior officers,, and  Constance, though she hardly expected  it, experienced a momentary'feeling  of disappointment that the first man  to escape was not the handsomg youth  to whose cool daring some at least oi  the ship's company would owe their  lives.  The newcomer was a typical Briton.'  "Thanks,'' he said. "Close shave.  Have you a light? We must signal  after each^ arrival."  7 Enid brought the small lantern, and  the stranger waved it twice. The rope  travelled back through the pulley, and  this time it carried a sailor-man, who  said not one word butyStooped to tie  his bootlace.  "How many are left?-' inquired  Brand of the officer.  "About eighty, all told, including  some twenty women and children."   .  "All wet to the skin?"  "Yes: some of them unconscious,  perhaps dead."  "Can you hold out "  "Yes;  a nip of brandy���������"7  '|1 will, send some. We must leave  you how. These with me are my  daughters."  At last the crust of insular self-  possession w������y;) broken. The man looked from one to the other of the seeming lighthouse-keepers.  "Well,-I'm0���������-." he blurted out in  his surprise. "That American young-  eter wondered what the trouble was."  ���������  A shapeless  bundle hove in  sight,  predecessors, knowing the need of it,  helped vigorously from the gallery.  Indeed, it was with difficulty that  Pyne was held back from returning  with the descending rope. Tbey told  him he was mad to dream of such a  piece of folly, and perforce he desisted.  But when the captain deliberately  cast off the deck-pulley from which the  rope had been manipulated they knew  that the boy had read his soul. The  now useless cordage dangling from  the gallery was caught by the wind  and pea and sent whipping off to lea-  ward.  Brand, brought from the lantern by  the hubbub of shouting, came out, followed by Constance. He suggested,  as a last resource, that they should  endeavor to fire a line across the vessel by means of a rocket.  They agreed to try, for the spectacle  of the captain, standing bareheaded  on all that was left of the bridge,  moved them to a pitch of frenzy not  often seen in an assemblage of Anglo-  Saxons, and especially of sailors.  Brand turned to procure the rocket^  but a loud cry caused him to delay.  TheTexpected wave had come, the vessel was smothered in a vortex of foam,  the tall fore-mast tottered v and fell,  and when the water subsided again  all that was visible of the great-steamer was some portion of her hull and  the solidly built bow, which was not  wrenched from the keel-plate until  another hour had passed.  The agonized cry .of a strong man  is a woful thing. Constance, by reason  of the gathering at the side of the  gallery, was unable to see all that was  taking place. But the yell which went  up from the onlookers'("told her that  ex-hospital orderly had done wonders  already.  "All I want, miss," he explained, in  answer to Constance's question, "is  some water and some linen for bandages. The lint outfit in the chest is  not half sufficient."  She vanished, to return quickly with  a sheet and a pair of scissors.  "Now,'' she said to Mr. Pyne, "if  you come with me I will send, you  back with a pail of water."  The little apartment," like every  part of the building, save the rooms  reserved by Brand's directions was  packed almost to suffocation. . This,  if harmful in one respect, was beneficial in another. The mere animal  warmth of so many human beings was  grateful after the freezing effect of  the gale on people' literally soaked to  the skin.  The girl, not unmoved by curiosity'  held the light so that it illumined Mrs.  Vansittart. A woman of forty, no  matter how good-looking and well-  preserved she may be, is in a sorry j  plight under such conditions. Constance saw a beautiful face, deathly  white and haggard, yet animated and  clearly chiseled. The eyes were large  and lustrous, the mouth firm, the nose  and chin those of a Greek statue. Just  now there were deep lines across the  base of the high forehead. The thin  lips, allied to a transient hawk-like'  gleam in the prominent eyes, gave a:  momentary glimpse of . a harsh, perhaps cruel disposition.

Apply  at2931 acott St.  City Market, Main Street  -Sir:���������  When the influential deputation  waited upon the South Hill Council to  protest against the granting of a license fpr a pool room at South Hill,  the .first' step taken was to call in  question the legality of the license  granted.  We were assured that all was in order, though we still had our own opinion on the matter. Since then the following facts have come to hand:  The Licensing Commissioner, who  is the chief of police, and who the  deputation was assured by the Reeve,  had full jurisdiction in the granting  or withholding of such licenses, and  who is resolutely opposed to the  opening pf any pool rooms in this district, first heard that permission had  been granted by the council for the  erection of a pool room in South Hill,  from the newspapers. He never issued or gave permission for any such  license to be issued, and never would  do so; hence the so-called license is-  sued by the clerk is not license at all,  not having been sanctioned by the  licensing commissioner.  That we were not too late, as we  were informed, in making our protest,  a letter actually waiting for the licensing commissioner requesting him to  hold his hand, at the very time that  a pseudo licensing commissioner was  banding over an illegal license, is now  known to the public.  On the above grounds the licensing  commissioner has been requested to  act in accordance with the protest of  the deputation.

Taylor,  Limited,  publisher,  Woodstock,  Ont., >  is to the fore with a plentiful supply of  good game hunting stories, covering  Canada from the Atlantic to the Pacific.   The opening story, by Mr. Bon-  nycastle Dale    is    particularly good,  consisting of a fine description of the  gallant efforts of a little fawn to escape, its rescue    by    tho  sportsman  whose best instincts were aroused by  its hopeless struggle, and its capture  and revival by the petting showered  upon it.������ The whole narrative makes  an' irresistible appeal to the highest  ideals of sportsmanship and proves a  capital opening for a number whieh  includes hunting of many varieties and  under widely different conditions.   Mr.  Starratt's paper on Woodcock Shooting in Nova Scotia is another artttle  which stands out prominently as one  which cannot fail to stir the feelings  and,the memories of all bird hunters  and make them live many of their experiences over again.   Big game hunting,  however, is  given the pride ot  place in this number, and it is a foregone conclusion that in many a camp  throughout thiB broad Dominion Rod  and Gun will prove not only an acceptable but an indispensable companion.  Many an Important article of the out-.  fit would be less missed than thia num-"  ber.

AN OPPORTUNITY  About 850,000 tons of gypsum are quarried annually in Nova Scotia, but of this amount-only  10.500 tons are used in the manufacture of gypsum  products in the Province. The remainder is  shipped to the United States. The industry is  steadily growing. There is a large:,,opportunity  for British manufacturers who would erect factories within the Province. Under present conditions the raw material is sent to the United States,  and large quantities returned to Nova Scotia and  the other Provinces of Canada in different forms  on manufactured products. .This condition should  be supplemented by Nova Scotian mills supplying not only the Canadian,'but a large portion of  the United States market.  19.1.1.

An interesting case is now'before the courts in  connection with the right of Baron de Longueuil  or his heirs to collect a seignorial tax on property in the town of St. John's, Quebec. A committee of residents of the town, formed some time  ago to contest the right to levy a tax, contend that,  the land on whieh the town is built was never, as  alleged, conceded to the seignieurs, having been  reserved by an ordinance of the King of France  for military purposes, and, therefore, not being  liable to any tax. Several censitaires of St. John's,  supporting this contention, have refused to pay  the annual seignorial tax,7 and have, in consequence, been sued by the heirs70 of the Baron de  Longueuil. The heirs lost on the first count, but  at once carried the ease to appeal. The Quebec  government will be represented in the coming proceedings before a higher court.

The exportation of pulpwood In a  raw form from Canada into the United  States is increasing   yearly, and by  just so much as this is so does Canada  lose.the benefits to be derived from  manufacture-and-the-increased-value  of   raw   products.     The     Forestry  Branch of the Department of the Interior has campiled statistics showing  that over a million and a half cords  of pulpwood were cut in Canada during 1910. worth nearly nine million,  eight hundred thousand dollars.   Over  sixty per cent of this amount was sent  out of Canada without further labor  being   expended   on it.   The United  States manufactured it into pulp and  paper.    From United    States Forest  Products Bulletins, it is seen that approximately two-fifths of the pulpwood  imported by that country is manufactured into mechanical pulp, and three-  fifths into sulphite pulp, and that a  cord of wood produces one ton of mechanical pulp or one-half ton of chemical pulp.   This means that of the nine  hundred   and   forty-three     thousand  cords of Canadian pulpwood sent into  the United States in 1910, three hundred and seventy-seven thousand tons  of mechanical pulp and two hundred  and eighty-three   thousand   tons    of  chemical pulp were made.   The value  of this pulp, for which    Canada    received six million, two hundred and  ten thousand dollars as pulpwood, was  over thirteen and a half million dollars at the average price paid in 1910  by United States importers   of pulpwood.   Thus Canada did not get one-  half the amount 6he would have received if ail pulpwood were converted  into pulp on Canadian soil.    As the  United States does not export two per  cent, of what it imports, a certain and  steady market would be found for all  the wood pulp of Canadian production.  ���������Canadian Bureau of Information  THE  luE  WAY ETCHES  FLY  DEPENDS on the power that causes their  flight   The most,attractive offer coaxes  the largest number of dollars  forth.

This is tlie market and the abattoirs  for all imported stock, the most of it  coming  from  the United  States  aud  Canada.   The number of bullocks will  run from three to ten thousand a week.  They and the smaller stock must be  bought   and   slaughtered   within   ten  days from the date of arrival.    If at  the expiration of that time any are  left over, the abattoir authorities have  them killed, dressed and the carcasses  sold at auction.   The same conditions  prevailed here as at Islington so far  as the treatment of the animals was  concerned.   The four-footed creatures  were only cattle, they were on their  way to death���������why be kind, patient,  hum������ane?   But he who. looks for such  traits of character in the average man  engaged in the business of personally  handling live stock that is to be slaughtered,  will  look  in  vain.    The  very  business is demoralizing.   It is bound  to    be.    Imagine yourself   trying   to  load,  unload,    force    into  the death  chamber and  bind  securely,. so  that  you might kill them, a carload of wild  western steers.   They are not lambs.  They know nothing about your rights  and privileges.,  In their terror of all  that is so strange they would trample  you   beneath   their  feet  without  the  slightest hesitation.   You would probably lose your temper, strike many a  blow  in what would  seem  like self-  defense,  use  methods  of compulsion  that were far from gentle as apparently the only ones that would be effective.    No,  there are  some  things  thatif you are going to do at all will  not admit of being done by  Sunday  school children and.refined men and  women.    Of  course  we  demand  the  flesh of these same Texas steers that  someone must handle with little concern as to what humane societies approve, but, here again we say, if the  public had to do it it would repudiate  the job and7 turn vegetarian, that is,  ho small part of it would;  or, if it  Still   occasionally   indulged   in   meat,  would do it "With a more or less accusing consciencie, feeling itself a par-  ticeps criminis in the whole wretched  business that, say what we will, reeks  blood and\ is repellant to every  to suffering.  It was interesting to learn that on  the-present site of Deptford market  and abottoirs there once stood ah old  monastery. A single window bearing  the date 1516, has been preserved, the  wall of the modern building enclosing it, a mere fragment of far-off days  when, let us hope, the spirit of kindness and good will toward all made  this present place of blood sacred  and holy ground.  There is still another historical association connected with Deptford.  Here where the cattle pens are grouped  together, was the famous shipyard to  which Peter the Great of Russia came  to learn the shipbuilding trade.

We also went this same day to Harrison  and   Barber's   place,   where   a  large part of the horses dying in the  city are taken care of, and where many  of flfiem, sick or injured, are destroyed.   The flesh of no horses killed here  is ever used for human food, though  that  that  passes  inspection  as  in  a J  healthy condition  is worked  up into!  dog  biscuits.    It was a strange  and]  pathetic sight to  see these poor  old j  servants of man, some of them that I  had worked till there was absolutely  no strength left to turn another wheel  or carry another pound's  weight,  in  the various stages of their last journey  from  the threshold of the institution to their final disappearance go  far as  any  shape or  form  of  their  equine existence was concerned.  There were a few bright spots in  the day where, through the shadows  cast by market and abattoir, the sun  of hope could be seen breaking in. It  is all as bad in England as in America,  except the abattoirs under the direction of the Admiralty, of which we  wrote  last month  are so nearly ideal that one is greatly  cheered with the thought that some  day what is true there will be true  everywhere when once men and  women who create the demand for animal flesh have in some way had a vision of the cruelties that characterize  the average slaughter-house, and then  have insisted that these millions of  four-footed creatures that year by year  are compelled to lay down their lives  for them shall journey from meadow  and hillside to the place of execution,  and then from life to death spared  every pang of, pain, mental and phy-  On what he says will probably be  the last voyage hut one he will ever  make across the Atlantic, Lord Strathcona arrived in New York the other  day, on his way from England to the  Dominion. As the veteran peer, standing on the deck of the giant Maure-  tania, viewed the unfolding panorama  of skyscrapers and great bridges,  looming over the inner bay of the  American metropolis, he grew reminiscent and recalled how it had once  taken him 42jSays to make the journey  he had just made in four and a half.  It is more than three-score years  since Strathcona made his maiden  trip across the seas in an old packet  ship, and in that time, the world,  awaking from its centuries of inertia,  hall evolved most of those electrical  arid engineering wonders which make  for present day efficiency and enable  us to do in one hour-what formerly  took us twenty to accomplish. It is  true Stephenson and Watt in England  and Cooper in the United States had  put forth their first steam locomotives,  i Fulton his river steamboat, Murdock,  the Scot, illumination by gas, and  Morse and Wheatstone their systems  of telegraph. Though crude and primitive, these" inventions, which gave a  new impetus to civilization, set men  thinking and fired their imagination  as nothing from the beginning of time  had done before.  Contrasted with the- ninety days  taken by the Pilgrims to make, the  trip in the Mayflower from England to  Cape Cod in 1620, the three months  spent in negotiating his way from London to Baltimore by the original John  Jacob Astor and the eighty days required by Ben Franklin to go from  New York to France, Lord Strath-  cona's voyage of forty-two days marked as important and epoch-making a  step in the world's evolution as does  his more . recent four-day voyage,  though he probably did not suspect it.  In the time it took him to make his  forty-two day journey across the Atlantic; -Jayer-Schmidt, a Paris journalist, recently circled the globe for his  newspaper. Thus, that which challenged our admiration and wonder  last year or yesterday, today commands but passing notice. From the  sailing ship to the steamship was a  long stride and likewise tbe transition  from the stage coach and the pony  express to the steam railroad. The  land operated telegraph, with its limitation of fifteen words a minute, which  brought the remotest corner of the  world into instant touch with the  centres of civilization and destroyed  the natural isolation of nations and  communities, wonderful in its clay and  generation, like the original steamship  and locomotive,, now seems immature  compared to the 1,000 words a minute  telepost .v system 7of.. ^automatic _ tele-,  graphy which transmits over one wire  as much as Morse sent over sixty-five  and at a fraction of the expense. Wellington at Waterloo bivouacked by  candle light and Florence Nightingale,  the "Angel of the Crimea," ministered  to the 198 survivors of the Light Brigade���������the noble 600���������of Balaclava by  oil lamp., "Bobs," in the Transvaal,  shaped his campaign by gas, and Togo,  the naval hero of the Japanese-Russian  war, recently a visitor to the Dominion, by electric light.  Practically all of these changes have  come to pass in the life time of  Strathcona. In meditating'on. them,  as he looks back to the first of the  100 trans-Atlantic trips he has made  in the last" CO. years, truly can he  felicitate with the world and say, this  is an'age0worth while  DOG GIVES  ...

The provision  of suitable crossings for foot passengers is imperatively necessary for the  sake of all and especially the school  children and ladies.

Mr. Dickinson reports thai, his interview was  highly satisfactory, and that plans for  the proposed extension will be laid  before the next meeting of the council. This opening of just over a short  half mile or so of car line connecting  two busy arteries of the existing tramway will be of most valuable service,  affording not only benefit to passengers, but also extra facilities to the  municipality for the transportation of  rock from the plant on Campbell avenue.
