 jPubijshggMr^the Interests of Vancouver and the Western People  VOLUME III  H. H. Stevens, M.P., EDiroR-in-Chief  VANCOUVER, Bmtoh Columbia, JANUARY ia 1912.  FINAL CAMPAIGN SHOTS  The fateful day draws near in which Vancouver's ciyic destiny will be in. the'Electors' hands  lor good or ill.  A few. parting shots, Messrs.. ELECTORS!!  "Would you rather have a man work half a day  ���������for a whole day's pay���������or a whole day!  You know the difference between a half-timer's  , work and a whole timer V :;!  Findlay is a whole-timer; Taylor a half-timer.  p        Which will be able to look after the City best t  Can there be any question���������for a sane man-  but that Findlay ia that best mant  Surely Vancouver is rich enough and big  enough to demand the whole time of her civic  head���������it is needed to keep the rest of the gang up  to scratch.  Findlay stands for efficiency of departments���������^  with the time and sense to make good on it. Does  Taylor hnow anything of the work he is supposed  to supervise I Talk with him and you will soon  discover he either wasn't there���������came in late-  left-before it was aver���������������r rthe. subject was not  sufficiently interesting���������so that somehow or other  he has only a general hugger-mugger sort of notion about the particular business you wish to  learn from him.  How can it be otherwiset A man can't run  a big newspaper���������go in. for building Bpecs and  .generally row his own boat, and at the same time  be able to give sufficient attention^ to your affairs,  Findlay won't promise yon anything and everything���������-like a good, sale business man, he  wants to examine new proposals and see where  the City is getting off at.  One of hit strongest planks���������in whieb he is  pledged up to the hilt for���������is a better and a  regular c������r service.  He will not go cap in hand to the B-CER.  hut give them a straight from the shoulder ulti-  t"r.   Wtum.

Stop overcrowding another���������the taking in of  South Vancouver to the City proper another.   ,  The immediate development of our Harbor jw������������  other���������at the same time seeing that we get proper  assistance from the National funds that Vancouver is entitled to.  Conservation of street ends and development  of False Creek on both sides, Mr. Findlay is hot-  afoot for.  Also the cleaning up of our filthy streets-���������  as they may well be called during the past few  weeks���������this would cut out the bread 4me--and  give much needed employment..  Good roads throughout the City���������and the oc  quiring of the Indian Kitsilano reserve are two  more strong planks.  James Findlay is not only a humane man but  he is a Humane Society man���������and what that  means, all lovers of our horses need not be told.  Findlay believes in making each head of department directly r^mdWe to the Council.  Findlay will not stand'for anymore Great  Northern "shilly-shalling" but intends to make  them live up to the letter and spirit of their  agreement.  W Taylor dimt sot  Knot, why not t  Every vote given for Findlay is a vote for  efficiency���������whereas every vote given for Taylor  ia for "a muddle���������through somehow policy."  Which d> yon prefer?  'findlay is in strong sympathy with lowering  the ojlt of living���������and will help do this in a  practical way���������a dollar saved is. another dollar  earned.  Fiadley is tried and true. A fine, dean, strong  man, such a one as the City has long needed.  Electors, now is your chance. - Take It. Throw  up your votes and hands for James Findlay,  Vancouver's strong Mayor���������lest you have need  to throw nip your stomachs, before you are well  rid of Taylor^  GOD SAVE THE KING!  -fl* .'-���������������������������������������������  A HEW FEATURE  Hereafter a new featurevbf.interest to our readers, but more particularly to architects, engln-  ������$ers, contractors, builders and dealers in building  material will appear regularly in the Western  Call. The Terminal Citjr Press, Ltd., has been fortunate in securing the services of a writer, who,  by nature, education and experience is qualified  to-edify and interest the above classes. This special contribution with the weekly letters from  Ottawa will add mueh value to the Cell and help  swell its rapidly increasing circulation. -  If you want a Mayor who  iviM Represent the City, and  not Individuals and Corporations, Vote for Findlay  ���������������������������!��������� ��������� ��������� ������ i ������ i'i i.imi ��������� n ������i������.������ ������ ��������� t i  iiiiuiiiiiiiifliiiiiiiiinii i'ii ������*���������*���������*+ nil   l&yloi^ Record Summarized  Qross Mal-adminlstration of City's Affairs���������Corporations  Protected--Workingmen Buncoed  ; The facts which follow are clear proof of the scandalous procedure adopted  by Mayor Taylor during his term of office as mayor of Vancouver, these tacts  have been repeatedly published and in no single instance has His Worship been  able to refute them.   They are true: *  1. v He, the mayor, claims credit for reorganizing the legal department.  This is true, but the reorganization consisted of raising the salary to $6,000, and  engaging a man who has not the confidence of the Council, and who,' on two occasions, when on civic business at Victoria, disgusted those wno were with him by  getting notoriously drunk. If for no other reason than this, Taylor should be  turned down. ,  2.. Taylor's most boasted accomplishment is, "the settling of the False Creek  question." The greatest public crime ever perpetrated in the history of the city.  On no single occasion, since the agreement was signed, has Taylor made the slightest attempt to enforce its terms, but, on the contrary, has always defended and  protected the company.  3. His Worship then appeals to the union men on the ground that he "secured the r^hour day." We a^ The answer is, that  during the tenn of office of Mayor Taylor the civic work has passed almost entirely  into the hands of American Italians, whose vote is "delivered" by the "boss" in  the latest approved American "boss rule" style. Taylor has never once opposed  this, or'spoken of it in any way, shape or form. But he has imported an up-to-  date American politician to mm his campaign. Again we ask, "Are you satisfied  to adopt the corrupt American political system!" If Taylor has not openly advocated this, he has paved the way for its introduction by allowing this type of labor  to come to the city, and already we see the result in some of the most revolting  crimes in the annals of criminology.       ;- j  - 4. Taylor says, "I have secured for you the right to construct your own telephone system." He should add, "but I privately arranged with Farrel that I  would not permit construction, and have kept that promise by obstructing every  effort to break the monopoly of the B. C. Telephone and by protecting them.  5. He also claims credit for brmgmrabout the joint sewer scheme. Never by  word or deed has he, done anything to facifitate this work    He has been a dead  weight to carry. ;';^':;!-    . ","''" :'-:'">'.  Taylor has done nothing except attempt to make for himself political capital  vby appropriating the aceomplishments of others, and by conniving with corpora*  tiona Cthe jfc C.

JJe is utterly unable to deny these facts, and we conclude by  .} urging that he bedriven out of the pnhUc we of Va^ouver lor  ���������v.

Odium; M.C., BSc.) . ;  All thinking men know this statement to be"  comprehensively correct." There is another of  similar import which may be given thus: By  their teethings ye may know their fruits. These  two expressions I use as a foundation for a few  remarks on certain living topics and conditions  of the day.  The use of deadly explosives comes'directly  from the islse and foolish teachings of the Anarchic street preaching, the platform declaiming,  and the extreme Socialistic press of the continent, as well as of Europe, Britain, Australia, New  Zealand and a few other countries. These street  orators, and savage press writings of the last  twenty years have provided, an immense number  of vicious men and women who would not hesitate to destroy human life and property at a moment's notice. The insane and murderous teachings of the past are, the predecessors of the murders and dynamiting* that are rampant today.  . . .-.' Our newspapers, politicians, ministers, and  professional men, have to recast their attitude  towards the scoundrels who openly teach murder,  fire and bosnb-tbrowing. iLast week I listened to  one of those wiM men. He would, with his mouth  at least, blow all money and corporations out of  existence. And lol applause is given by an ignorant and vicious crowd of listeners. Home of  our politicians are so cowardly as to dwarf into  insignificance in tbe presence of this fire-eating,  ignorant crowd. They temporize, and pretend that  they agree with the teachings of men who are  aiming, not at the general good, but at the destruction of life, property, and all restraining law.  I say the truth. There are tens of thousands half  insane in their ignorance and false teaching as  a result of the unbridled savagery taught through  the press, and spoken from the rostrum as well as  at the street corners.  No wonder we have "gun-men" in scores in  our large cities. No wonder pillage, robbery,  hold-ups and even worse-crimes are increasing.  The teaching of the past twenty years on this,  continent has had no example so vile since dependable history has been written. And our  cowardly public men are growing more -afraid  than,ever: By the teackmg, writing, rand public  acting of today, we can safely predict a future  terrible in its dire results. Not one man or woman on.the whole Canadian and Unistation coast  is safe in going out at night on the streets, or  even in daylight in lonely places. Our people  have been sowing the wind and are reaping the  whirlwind.  , Now.they are sowing the whirlwind and later  on will reap domestic, religious, moral, financial  and national cyclones.  "When will our public quit blaming the police  department; and turn their attention to the LEGAL ACCOMPLICES DP ALL THE DASTARDLY CRIMINALS that are caught by the police!  Let the worst desperado known to mankind get  into the toils, and, lo! in a few minutes, he can  have at his beck and call, for money, or fame,  some of our cleverest CRBHNAL LAWYERS.  The police are defeated on law points, ahd the  murderous thugs, thieves, libertines, home-smashers, and other pests go at liberty, laughing at our  tfcwrijnro^ by;  lawyers for mbheyV These men ore caught to the  . act of thieving, jrwte-snatcWng, or other criminal  work; and still certain lawyers, for the sake of  money strive to free them. Is tliis what oar laws  and lawyers are fort It is time that the decent  men of ''The Trades and Labor Organizations"  take this matter up i& a hot and vigorous man-  ;ner.  Not too long ago I listened to a M. L. A.,  speech-making, and he openly denounced all law,  and governments; and positively acclaimed amid  applause that he would have no governing or restraining force to interfere with him and his fel-  lowmen. ;������������������        ���������   <"Vu: 'u -,''  This suits tbe thugs, gamblers, thieves and similar scoundrels, as well as their accomplices, The  vast majority of Canadians are^instinctively in  favor of law and wholesome restraint, but they  do not find time, or have not the inclination to  give attention to these matters in a practical manner. I foretell one of two things: The masses  will soon arise as never before and make it a  danger for known criminals to be protected, petted and honorably discharged; or the masses will  suffer more in the near future than ever in the  past. '  What man ean number the thousands of poor-  men's daughters, who are stolen away from their  homes, and swallowed up so as never to be heard  of again? Thousands of girls are annually stolen  by the devil's vampires with the one object of  making money. Let one of these brutes be caught,  and he will be at once protected by "criminal  lawyers." A good name at least! What about  our police department! Untrained policemen, I  mean untrained hi legal lor* and habit* are  matched against experts in law,' professional criminal protectors, to an alarming extent. . . Our  Prosecuting Attorney has so much to do in his  various private duties that he has only a very  limited time to give to the Police Court matters.  He goes there quite unprepared concerning the  details of the special cases coming morning after  morning.  I speak from a long and intimate acquaintance  with these matters, and have no reference to any  special Prosecuting Attorney.  * He should have no other business. . He should  be in the Police Court Or an office at hand, from,  say, 9:30 a.m. until 5 p.m. daily..  Unless there is a very great change, our city  will be infested by thugs and thieves in larger  numbers, as time passes.  Every "shady" person, man or woman, coming  to town, should not be simply spotted and trailed,  but should be forced to show how they are making a living. If there be no means in sight, then  outside the city with them at once,! or at least  coop them up as vagrants. I am talking of "shady  characters." Many "poor nten and women, without means of support, are as worthy a place in  our city as are the men of wealth and influence.  But our policemen know of many who are bad,  but as soon as they make a move, up conies the  lawyer, and down goes the policeman. The lawyer gets dollars, the policeman defeat, the scoundrels liberty, and the public all sorts of thievery,  fraud and highway robbery. Shall we stand for  this! ���������������������������   ��������� ���������  A WEAK DENIAL  f i  </  "The jackal can in safety gnaw the tongue of '- r-  the dead lion" and with equal present safety ; '  Mayor Taylor can deny the charges against him in ���������' >-'  the columns of this paper by H. H. Stevens, who -"-  is now on his way to Ottawa, and therefore eannot * ^  now re-affirm and demonstrate the charges. ���������  It is easy and safe to apply vulgar epithets to "  the absent and to make a show of candor and courage in a noisy denial, but why did not Mayor -  Taylor deny while Mr. Stevens was in the City.

He may be depressed and yet not feel  that marriage, for him, is a failure; he may be  captious and fretful, yet feel no irritation against  his wife. I am not absolving men from the obligation to be agreeable to their womankind, not  extenuating their frequent infractions to the code  of marital amenities. I am only assuring you, for  your own good, that these things are often the  outward and visible sign of an inward and spirit-  uad discordance which you have not caused, and'  about which you would be unwise to grieve. Learn  to wait and by and by you will find that business  went wrong that day; or he sat in a draft, and  all his bones ached with an incipient cold; or he  had eaten an indigestible meal; (not at home, of  course), and was depressed, he knew not why.

A Foreword.  It was intended in this issue of the  Western Call* to commence a series  of articles iron a new viewpoint on  this subject, but owing to our going  to press earlier, an Introduction to  thia important subject is all that can  now be given.  The startling disclosures in the famous packing case trials now going  on across the line throw a lurid light  upon the methods of the modern beet  barons.  No robber baron of old was more  rapacious in his assualt upon the public purse than are these gentry of  the combine to-day. There is only  one way to beat these tree-booters  and that la by playing their own game  to .meet combine with combination.  Many attempts have been made  from time to Ume to frame up something that will check these dastards  at their nefarious gamble with the  public food.  In these enlightened days, men of  Imperial breed do not have to apologize to the Swifts, the Armours, tbe  Griffins and the whole evil packer  crew, for being on the face of the  earth, neither do they need to pay  tribute in the cold blooded way it is  levied on them at present.  It cannot have escupea notice of  thinking men, that the price 01 ail  Toodstufia are raised from time to  time by an almost automatic process  to keep pace with the increased rewards that labor wins by the sweat  of its brow, which rightly should not  be swept into the gaping coffers of  the Swifts, Griffins, Cudahays & Co.  How can it be prevented is certainly a great problem, but hard as it is,  in tbe writer's opinion it is not incapable of a final solution, 'which  probably means a slight sacrifice to  begin with. Two things are necessary, strong organization and up-keeping a combination of the consumers, ^over 100 years.   Truro itself is quite  In short, wrest the robber packers! a moderate sized city, speaking without any references, it can not be more  than about 30,000 or 40,000, and what  a city of this size can accomplish in  one generation, surely, all the Vancou  ter in the light of a Greater Vancou-'  ver, which everyone is epeaking of, it  will be found that the location is well  chosen in this respect.  The project was a favorite dream  of the late Bishop Dart, and it reflects  great credit on Bishop de Pencier to  have carried it thus far, the securing  of a suitable' site being a matter ot  difficulty and great importance to the  whole project. Our pious ancestors  were great men at site choosing, alt  the many beautifully placed fanes of  the Old Country yet testify. The real  estate dealer was evidently easier to  deal with in those days when subdivisions were unknown, and land registries ceased from troubling.  : ���������    *   ���������  The stupendous nature of the undertaking, if it is to be a cathedral  worthy of the city and hot merely a  large church, may be better understood if I give a few details of tbe  leading. English cathedrals, to name  half a dozen of the best known ones,  we have: ''��������� "  Canterbury, 514ft xHSft; built A.D.  1070.  Lincoln, 482ft. x 223ft; built A.D.  1075.  Salisbury, 450ft. x 206ft; built A.D.  1220.  Winchester, 526ft x 208ft.; built A.D.  980.  ,  York, 486ft. x 222ft.; built A.D. 1180.  Exeter, 383ft. x 140ft.; built A.D.  1107.  The great Metropolitan Church ot  St. Paul's, built by the famous architect Wren, begun in 1675, completed  1710, measures 460ft x 240ft., the.  height of dome being 363 feet above  the street.  .*������������������*.*  Of modern cathedrals built during  the present generation, Liverpool and  Truro are the most, notable, the  foundation of ths latter was laid by  the late King Edward VII, as Duke  of Cornwall 'in< 1,876.

Rome and Marriage.
Editor Western Call,
Sir: ���
The editoro of the "Province" and
the "News-Advertiser* not being con-
in the statement of the. Rev. Father
Comeau ? In answer to this question
I beg leave to quote from a pastoral
Issued to "the faithful" by the Bishop
of Galloway: He says, "It has now
again been declared solemnly,>by the
highest authority,' that no Catholic
can contract a Valid marriage outside
the.Catholic Church; any such sacre-
versant with Roman Catholic Church
law, deem it prudent to submit their ligioua attempt is he to bide an act
press reports to the Roman propagan- 01 foul concubinage; therefore, your
da in Vancouver for It* opinion on public duty to God and to your own
their truthfulness or otherwise. It is religious sense demands that you
a very humiliating, position for an should unreservedly shun all assocla-
editor to be placed, but still it Is the tlons and converse of any one who
correct one. It is a position of humility and obedience. In fact, it is what
the Roman Church demands from
those who cower beneath her lash.
Two lively illustrations of the attitude
pointed put occurred a few days ago.
Here is part of a statement made by
Rev. Father Comeau to a representative of a Winnipeg evening paper and
submitted,by the ditors of the papers
mentioned, to Archbishop McNeil for
an opinion: "Suppose a Roman Catholic and a Protestant wish to get married���we will Imagine the husband to
be a Catholic. Tbe parties are married by a Protestant minister. The moment the marriage Is, contracted the
husband has forsaken the Catholic
doctrine and can no longer be recognized aB a true Catholic. The only
way he can come back into the. fold
is by getting his legal wife to be married to him by a Catholic priest, according to the conditions of the Catholic Church, that is, that she shall not
interfere with the practise of his doctrine and the children shall be brought,
up in the Catholic faith. If the wife
refuse's, and he insists on coming back
to the Church, the husband must take
a vow never to live with her again.'
"If, when reinstated as a Catholic,
the man wishes to marry another woman, the ceremony to be performed by
a Catholic priest," asked tbe reporter, "may he do It?' "Well," was the
reply, "we try and getthe man to seek
a divorce from the State first, because
In the eyes of the law he is still married, and while the Church' does not
recognise, we do not want to lay ourselves open to persecution. There is
a" way ouU and that is by having a
secret marriage." This is what a
Protestant would call "letting the cat
out of the bag." How indiscreet Rev.
Father Comeau must have been when
he thus gave himself away. Not himself alone, for (hat would be a small
matter, but the infallible Church. The
Church, with no two opinions. The
archbishop in bis opinion Bays "What
he Rev. Father Comeau is reported to
have said Is Incorrect." Now, I venture to say had the editor of our two
dailies forwarded the reports ^o the
Vatican they would have gotten a
different" reply as to that .furnished
them by the archbishop..   When an
should unhappily fall Into such abomination. Let them feel that they are
utterly unwelcome and unfit to hold intercourse with you until they repent
and amend by putting away tbe evil
thing."���Pastoral Letter, Lent, 1909,
P-4. v
Rome in this marriage question is
more insulting than most people believe. Indeed this phase of the question placeB the Moderator of the Presbyterian Church in Canada in doubt.
It is strange how some of our Protestant ministers, know so little about
Rome. Like Luther, they should go
there for a season. Has the Pope
any right, secular or divine, to declare
that a marriage as performed by an
Anglican, a Presbyterian, or a Methodist minister is no marriage and that
the offspring thereof are illegitimate?
A marriage that Is non-canonical Is
considered no marriage. Here is the
proof front a concordat entered Into
between Pope Leo XIII and the republic of Columbia:
"Article 34.���A marriage contracted
in conformity with the rites of the
Catholic religion annuls ipso jure a
purely civil marriage previously entered into with another person.
"Art. 35.���For purely civil effects
the law recognizes the" legitimacy of
the children conceived previously to
the annulment of the civil marriage.
In accordance, with the provisions of
the last preceding article.
''Art. 36.���The man who,.after tiav-,
ing contracted a civil marriage, afterwards marries another woman according to the rites of the Catholic
Church is .required to provide subsistence to the woman and his children
by tier until she marries canonlcally"
���Congressional Record, Feb. ll.toOS.
Senator Morgan in commenting on
these disgraceful' and heartless articles said "Gentlemen speak of Mormon-
ism, which 1b intended in its worst
feature to spread the rights of matrimony over a number -of females included in a family, not to destroy matrimony by an arganlc law that dissolves the marriage and sets the parties free from each other and taster-
di7.es their issue. I will not ask you
which is the worst system���Mormon
I ism or Romanism."
These are strong words.    The r��a
opinion was wanted on the Eames-Gor-! ann ia ,,.���������������  ..     ^      '        .      ���
i .    . .... . i8oa ls   Because  the man  who spoke
gorza marriage all the facts in con-
nection with it were forwarded to the
Vatican. For the honour of the
Church that does things "To the greater glory of God." I would advise the
editors of the "Province" and the
"News-Advertiser" in future to send
their reports on questions of this kind
to the Vatican. An opinion from the
Vatican might not look so well in print.
as a local one, for instance, but they
it would be terse, clear, and ^convincing and thus give no room for heresy.
If Father Comeau's words are not in
keeping with a correct interpretation
as they would have it at the Vatican,
they must therefore be heretical. 1
wonder if the statement attributed to
Mgr. Araette, Roman Catholic Archbishop of Paris, on the subject of the
Eames-Gorgoza marriage has been
read by the Archbishop or the priest.
It seems that-the regularity of this
them knows his subject. Most men
now-a-days speak of Rome in favorable terms, because . they have only
seen her at" her best. Let us remember, however, that she can be Inte-
brand, unlovable and uncharitable in
practice where and when she is in
power. The Pope arid his marriage
laws show this to be true, and when
Rev. Father Comeau spoke his mind
he gave venf to the truth���he uttered
the sentiments of the Pope himself.

was forwarded by Mgr. Amette to Mgr.;
\ when the cheery Deaconess waB call-
Falconl (now Cardinal). Mgr. Amette
summarises the terms of that decision
In these words:
. "In the reply tbe Vatican explains
that (canonlcally speaking) the marriage is exact." In the case of Mme.
Barnes her first marriage was considered outside the Church; she was not
even baptized, consequently she was
considered an Infidel. The same is
the case with Mr. Story. Such marriages are recognized from a theological standpoint, aB so-called "natural
marriages,' but can be broken when
one of the pair wishes to become a
convert to Catholicism. It Is thus by
a spontaneous act of faith, that one
liberates himself or herself from the
marriage bond/' This is simplicity in
j itself, no costly dispensation, called
for or required, and may be done in
the day light without fear ot "persecution"���from the Vatican at least, or
the state governed from the Vatican.
There it is stated in unequivocal
terms that either one or two non-
Catholic persons who have taken marital vows may obtain release from these
vows by the simple process of becoming a Catholic. These vows are dissolved in   the   eyes   of   the   Church.
Again, I shall quote for the benefit
of the "Province" and the "News-Advertiser," from the Vaticans decision
and as summarized by the Archbishop
of Paris: "It is thus by spontaneous
acts of faith that one liberates himself or .herself   from   the   marriage

an envelope containing a gift of money from the "Young People" of the

manifested her appreciation of such

the necessities of life. Not only the
Deaconess but the Pastor's wife of the
above church was remembered at this
gift-season by the ladles of the W. M.
S., who are always noted for.. their
generosity and kindliness of spirit.
The gift consisted of a beautiful amethyst and pearl brooch presented to
her by Mrs. Beckett, the President of
the Society, in a choice little speech
of loving words which will be an highly
appreciated by her as the useful and
beautiful brooch.

A  large audience attended the annual  athering of the abdve^echool and was  delihtfully entertained the whole even-  ing. Several charming soloists were  encored, and the sweet chorus by the  younger girls was also much appreciated and instrumental music enjoyed.  The Hocp Drill by sixteen girls was  exceedinly pretty and ably performed  and certainly reflected careful training;. As the varied shades of light,  manipulated by Mr. Sparling so dexterously, were thrown upon their different movement, much applause was  evinced by the spectators. The climax  of the programme, however was reached when the curtain rose on an exquisite tableaux vivant enacted by  fourteen young ladies. Most effectively were the changing lights made to  play upon these scenes, and as tbe  sweet notes of tbe distant choir singing- "Nearer my God to Thee" fell  softly upon the listening audience,  one could almost hear the angels' song  and for hours afterwards could see the  outstretched hands of celestial visitants who have passed on before, no  wonder there was silence. The closing touching scene "Simply to Thy  Cross I Cling" will.not soon be for-  otten by- young or old. The Secretary's report for the year ending December, 17th, 1911, is most satisfactory,  showin a total membership on Roll  of one thousand one hundred and forty  eight, inclusive of seventy-seven on  the Cradle Roll.

The Sunday School  collections for the year amounted to  one thousand one hundred and four  teen dollars and seventy-five cents.

And the subsequent circulation of a petition denying tbe charge and the presentation of  the same to a Roman Catholic priest  If thoughtless young people attempted  anything so foolish, which is not likely, it is to be lamented. No friends  ot the Empire would care about rekindling a political light so completely  snuffed put on that remarkable day;  But why this ererlasting political kowtowing to any church. Is it not about  time the Roman Catholic Church treated with the same courtesy and respect  extended" to other christian churches.  It must be nauseating to educated independent members of that church to  think they are expected to swallow  specially-prepared political hash during a Federal contest, with liberal  doses of soft stuff between times. Let  us bone that during the present regime  no such scene will be enacted such as  occured in Montreal when Cardinal  Vaughn of the Jesuit Order of Roman  Papacy surrounded by and in the  presence: of our late Premier and his  robed Ministers of State, so grossly insulted tbe Protestant Christian religion under the benign influence of  which our great Empire and other nations of the earth have been so abundantly blessed, compared with the unfortunate nations under Romanian domination. In tbe great forward Christian movement of today there Is room  and to spare tor all christian religions  working together, shoulder to shoulder in tbe interests of humanity and  Christ the MaBter remembering bis  new commandment to love one another  and I might bellowed to add, avoiding even the suspicion of political  graft  W.

For the information of any electors in Vancouver who are not  thoroughly conversant with the proceedings of the License Board  during the past year, nor acquainted with the personel of the Board,  we wish to point out that in our opinion, with all due respect to preceding boards, the board of 1911 was probably the most satisfactory  to the great majority of citizens.  Two members of that board are candidates for election on January 11th, namely, R. S. Pyke and Dr. Patterson, and their work on  the board last year entitles them to the strong support of the electors  of the city.  While they have been>just and fair toward all parties having  dealings with the board, they have succeeded in improving very materially the regulations governing the liquor traffic. The number of  licenses have not been increased, and although several licenses were  available according to our by-laws, and numerous applications sfor  licenses were made, backed by much influence, not one shop license  was issued during the year, and the number of hotel licenses now in  operation are less than when these men took their seats on the board.  Several of the hotel buildings have been improved during the  year, and some licenses transferred to new and up-to-date premises  in suitable parts of the less congested business area of the city. The  licenses have been strictly confined to the business district, a^the  only hotel lieense south of False Creek has been forced to move to  new premises in the centre of the city.  Through the efforts of these Commissioners the all-night drinking of liquors and wines in cafes and restaurants has been stopped,  and this action should receive the approval of the great majority of  our citizens.  "We believe it advisable "that men who have had practical, experience on the board and who have given general satisfaction, should  be elected to represent the city during the present year, especially  as they have under consideration at the present time the establishment of a strictly defined license area for hotels, and the securing  of proper inspection of the liquors offered for sale to the public;  and as the new board will have to deal with the changing of the bylaws in order to carry out the proposed amendments to the city  charter dealing with the restaurant question, and we therefore ask  of our readers their support in securing the election of License Commissioners Pyke and Patterson.

Tbe two sailors, in  (springing from her gunwale into the  oobstays, would certainly cant hex  considerably,' and at that instant my  poor wife either threw her child into  ilie boat with a last frenzied effort, 01  someone caught the Baby from her as'  eke sank. The boat was seen by  Brand floating in with the'tide on the  morning of the 30th of July. She had  been,nine days at ssa. Some survivor  must have given the little one nourish-  taent in that time, as a twelve-months-  old child could "Hot pqssibly have lived,  Jn all likelihood, the bank of. fog clung  to the surface of the ssa and followed  'the tides, as there was little or no  wind on the days following the loss  bf the yacht. Again, there were provisions in the boat,' but no water,  Why? Either the water^casks had  started their staves when the smash  took place, or a careless steward had  failed to fill them. The next thing is  the Identity of the boat.' By the stupidity of a sailor, one of the Esmeralda's life-boats was burnt to the water's  edge in Norway. He upset a tin of  petroleum whilst he was opening it,  and a lighted match did the remainder.  Indeed, he and another man at the  Jars narrowly escaped death. A boat  ras purchased, but accident cr mischance prevented the Esmeralda's  (name being painted on it. There was  p Norwegian port number on the  stern-board, and this was smashed  ���������way by tbe falling mast. As the sail  Was trailing in the water when the  jboat was found by Brand, It is es-  ���������umed that the survivor or Burvlvors,  Jwho paid some heed to the child, suffered from injuries which prevented  him or them from hauling it .in. One  man's body was found on board and  he had been dead many days. Finally,  we nave the evidence of the . child's  clothing."  i "The girls told me something of the  Uory on the rock," said Pyne.

TT  THE KOOTENAY JAM WORKS at Mission  City have been erected during the past year and  equipped with modern apparatus and machinery  for the manufacturing of jams and chocolates, and  the canning and preserving of fruits, rhubarb, etc.,  grown in that wonderful fruit garden of the  Fraser River Valley. The site, plarit and equipments cost in the neighborhood of'$10,000, and  last season's output (their first season at Mission  City) in fruit and'wages totaled approximately  another $10,000. They shipped twenty-seyen ear-  loads of jam, fruits and mince meat, and over fifty  tons of canned rhubarb from their plant last season. This certainly speaks for itself for the enterprise and work of this new industry. J. O. M.  Fox and B. H. Pox are manager and aeeretary,  respectively, and have charge of the institution.  They formerly operated in the Kootenay country  for a couple of seasons and hence the name, where  they established an excellent reputation for themselves and their products. Their removal to Mission City affords them a much greater field'for  supplies and transportation. The installing of a  chocolate manufacturing department in connection with the works is important, as it will keep-  the plant running the year . round. The equipment ..for this department is scheduled to arrive  the last of January, and in the not far distant  future Mission City will certainly have a mission  catering to the toothsome fastidiousness of the  world at large and which no doubt she will dp to  a queen's taste 365 days in the year, judging from  the personnel of the Kbotenav Jam Company.  ial gentleman to meet, and the stranger will he  right royally treated who sojourns at. the Matsqui  Hotel.  O. A. ABBOTT is Mission City's leading general merchant.,. He has operated in the general  merchandise department five years and has been  a resident of" the district over twenty years. He  carries a large stock of hardware, implements,  harness, gent's furnishings, shoes, etc., etc. In  the early history of the Mission District Municipality he officiated as clerk and assessor. He is a'  prominent "man of affairs" &id has been a fruit  shipper since 1804. He is one of the "pioneers"  of the district who owns a nice fruit ranch adjoining the city^limits, several blocks of which are  subdivided into city lots. When any worthymove-  mc lit is on foot to boost for the Mission District;  you will always find G- A. Abbott in the front rank.  He was born in Ontario.  THS MISSION CITY FEED STORE, under  the management of Charles Winsdale, is one of  the busy enterprises of Mission City. They are  wholesalers and retailers in all kinds of feed and  poultry "supplies. They do custom chopping for  the farmers and are a factor of considerable commercial importance in the community. The concern started by carrying supplies for themselves,  and the demand of outsiders requiring the same  has created a big business. H. Winderbank, the  proprietor, is "The Father of Mission City" and  is an all-round hustler. He is also the owner of  yn������ fine Bellevue Hotel, the Mission City Butcher  iiShop, and; conducts the Mission  City  Light  &  W. J. KERR, LTD., whose line likeness appears above, is agent for fruit farms at Mission  City.. His office is located at New Westminster,  where he has operated in the realty business very  successfully during the past seven years. He has  long since become one of the great factors of the  Province in selling fruit and dairy lands in subdivided tracts on easy payments. He earries a  .staff of three experts to look after the mail and  advertising department. 'He is a live wire and is  extra well stocked up with literature for those  desiring further and detailed information on fruit  growing in British Columbia. Mr. Kerr is president of the Canadian Highway Association and  stands in the front rank in all worthy movements  aiming at the progress of the city and Province.  THE MATSQUI HOTEL, conducted by Chas.  B. DeWitt, affords first-class accommodations to  all homeseekers, tourists, drummers and townspeople as well, at very reasonable rates, at Mission  City. The rates are $1.50 per day and up. This  house has been .established twenty years and has  been under the present management during the  past year and a half. Mr. DeWitt leaves no stone  unturned to please .each and every guest who  crosses the threshold of his hostelry. He is a  native aon of the Sunset State of the.

The Editor of "The Western Call:"  Sir: All members of the Anglican Church, or  Church of England in Canada, will appreciate  Prof. Odium's noble testimony-to its remote am  cestry, its glorious heritage, audits elevating doctrinal teaching. .. \  Such testimony from a Methodist of painstaking  .condition; and research, should do much to restrain the professors of Nonconformist Colleges  from continuing to-, bolster up the monstrous  termino logical inexactitude that the Church of  England datesvfrom Reformation periods. Differ  from the Mother Church, if your conscience is so  disposed, but he honest like the Professor, and  don't attempt to belittle the historical antiquity  of what yon all spring from. JLagree with the  Professor when he writes, "I assort most posir  tivelv that this early Christian, British. Anglican  Church, never, in toto. went under or into the  Roman Catholic Communion." and to carry on  his reference to the same under guise of a noble  river, I will quote the pregnant words of the late  Rev. Stephen Mawker.- which .bear out Prof. Odium's statement: "The transit of our Apostolic  lineage through Romish times in England, is like  the temporary passage of a well known river  thrpugh one circumfluent lake; wherein, though  the waters intermingle a little as they glide, yet  the course of the mighty Rhone is visible throughout, in dwtinet and unbroken existence!   So it is  with us who haye inherited the genealogy of the  Apostles in these lands'. We came from British  fountains, we flowed in Saxon channels, we glided through Romish-"waters, but we were not. we  are not, we will not be of Rome; for we will preserve, God willing, the unconquerable courses of  our ancestral streams."  That is the truth! as the. Bishop of'London said  at .the. mass.meeting of men in Montreal:   "Why  j.am I not-a, Roman Catholic?    Because I am an  j English Catholic!   And the vast meeting cheered  j him to the echo for three minutes.  j We are a branch of the universal or Catholic  Church-, .and .here in Canada, to allow Roman  Catholicism tVrappropriate the term "Catholic"  entirely to their own Communion, is a sign of  weakness .on'the part of the Anglican Church in-  Canada.  Yours truly.  OWEN BULKELEY.  . Jescphus. in his account of. the siege of Jerusalem, says. "When Titus was come into the city,  he admired not only some other places of strength  in it. but particularly- the towers, and expressed  himself after the following manner: 'We have  certainly had God for our assistant in this war.  and it was no other than God that ejected the  Jews out of these fortifications; for what could  the hands of men. or any machines, do towards  overthrowing these towers?' " Well might Moses  claim that God had sent him when his powerful  and envious foes were so strikingly overthrown.  TAKB NOTICE, that. S������ day* Stam  date, we.

PVank Trimble, who served P.^ L. 301, now-  Ward VHI, last year, is candidate for 1912. Much  can be said in his favor.  He bat been in Vancouver for twenty-three  years, is now in the very prime of life, is well and  favorably known as a broker and real estate  dealer. Historically he is the second oldest meat  dealer in Vancouver, and has always been popular in the best sense of the term. His chief claim  to the- confidence of the electors is his record as  alderman last year. Every interest of the ward  Waa looked after by him with unabated devotion  from first to last. Although not having a vote in  the City Council because of a technicality, he gave  closest attention to ever}' detail of the ward's  business, and demonstrated his ability and fitness  for the responsibility of the office.  He has never failed to plan for the things that  will benefit his constituency. His return for 1912  is fully expected and cannot but result in gain  tp the city in general and Ward VIII in particular.

Other improvements are under consideration by  this most trustworthy servant of our city, W. B.  Owen.  ANNUAL REPORT.  For the first time in the history of Vancouver,  our citizens are furnished with a complete annual report of the parks. W. B. Owen, Mr. Lees  and others are to be credited with this work.  The report is conprehensive, clear and attractive, being handsomely and profusely illustrated.  It is a credit to the authors and publishers. Copies of the report can be procured by applying  to the secretary of the board at the City Hall.  PARK COMMISSIONER.  W. B. Owen! In selecting men for public office  the electors should insist on the highest standard  of excellence in all things, but more particularly  in the field fro which the candidate is to be. selected, so that a solid, broad foundation may be  laid for the future of this great city.   The super-  BuecmoN op aldrrmrn.  B. <T. McLean has been selected as a candidate  for Aldermanic honors and responsibilities in  Ward V. He has in his favor good Scotch blood,  sterling character, above average intelligence and  six years' experiance aawad roaster in Manitoba. Trustworthiness ii written on his features  and demonstrated in his life. He is a member of  the Improvement Committee of Ward V. East  End Ratepayers' Association, and also secretary  of the Mount Pleasant Presbyterian church and  of its board of: managers.  He stands squarely for temperance, moral reform and progressive government. He is an enthusiast on annexation of adjacent municipalities,  permanent high class improvements snd rocking  outlying districts with rock crushed by portable  rock crushers on the ground to be improved.  He is solidly, against granting long term franchises to corporations, including the B. C. Electric.
