It is  not without a sense of responsibility I accept the  trust, knowing by observation and experience, the  burdens that rest upon public officers in a rapidly  growing city: like ������������������"Vancouver.- No expense, labor  or inconvenience will be thought sufficient to cool  my ardor as an advocate of progressive government, large improvement and wise expenditure of  public funds in the ward and city.  Again I Bay, thank you 1  GEORGE WILLIAMSON.  ������   ;;  COMMENTS OF  THE ELECTION  (Prof. E. Odium, M.A., B. S.)   .  '  Our annual civic contest for places of honor,  trust and responsibility has come and gone. Vancouver has much to lie thankful for.   The chief  cause of satisfaction is this:   The Electorate ;thay:\  be depended upohMofcg������^  any important struggle is really placed before the  public.   They responded nobly and patriotically  to two or three main issues.   British loyalty, sound  musiness   methods,   and   uprightness   in   public  management, always appeal to the majority of  the Vancouver voters, and are wisely answered  to in the midst of strife.  Those who have been voted into positions of  trust should have the liberal, support, of the-whole  community so long as they walk uprightly in their  various offices.  Ward One certainly showed a fine spirit of appreciation in giving Alderman Ramsay such a  mark of their confidence. Now is the time, when  the election is over, to emphasize the manly course  pursued by Aid. Ramsay, in withdrawing from  the Mayoral contest. It takes a very great sacrifice to do what he did, after having announced  himself in the field for the chair of the Chief  Magistrate. To save the City he decided to take  the course he took, and grateful citizens should  not forget this noble act at a later date.  On the whole, a lot of good men have been  chosen for the several public offices. We heartily  congratulate Mayor-Elect Findlay on his remark-  (Continued on Page 8)  In the election of ^r. Jas. Findlay as Mayor of Vancouver, the citizens have  but given another demonstration of the general tendency of the public to that  which is honest and square. In this respect t^ie public is peculiar in that it may  be fooled for*a while but, when thoroughly roused, its verdict  is seldom wrong.  Last year Vancouver re-elected Taylor in order to give him a chance to show  if he could "make good." 'He had done nothing, but with characteristic leniency,  the public reserved its condemnation and gave him another chance. He failed,  and has been brushed aside and another placed'in his stead to take up the city's  problems. ^        -^ *���������-*** i  Mr.,Findlay enters upon his term of office under most auspicous circumstances. Vancouver, commercially, is on'the crest of the wave, and only requires  wise and careful administration of her a ffairi to reap in full the benefit. He  brings tothe office a clean record, \\ath no entanglements, backed up by a public  confidence which should spell Success to any one who found himself in such an enviable position. ��������������� ,  Among the problems pressing on Mr. Findlay and his colleagues for solution  is the protection of the city from the injury ^hich is inevitable as a result of the  breach of faith by:thei &reat Northern Riilway regarding False Creek; the forcing of the B. C. Electric to givethe city a reasonable service and businesslike  treatment; the carrying to completion of the city's part in the joint sewerage  scheme; a complete renovation of the civic outside service, replacing the American  Dagos by Anglo-Saxon citizens as much as possible; an adequate police accommodation, such as a new jail and a sijmcient staff, and numerous other reforms which  have been grossly neglected or else made the~tool of a political adventurer.  The task before the new Council is not a light one, and will call forth the best  that is in its members. To do justice to the great demands made upon them it will  be necessary to forget personal diffeicMiee^ and to lose sight of all desire for vainglory, and to unite with one object in view, vii, the advancing of the interests of  the City of Vancouver in such a Way as to give full opportunity for her to secure  the advantages which nature and time has so liberally bestowed upon her.  -       ir  ���������'*****************%*** I'M 11 **********+***4i**4 *** **<M ************************** ���������  ���������ttMah  Frank Trimble   '  Alderman for Ward Eight  For a second term the electors of Ward Eight  have thought proper to honor me with the duties  and responsibilities of their ward. This extension of confidence is most thoroughly appreciated  by the undersigned, who accepts the position with  unconcealed pleasure paralleled by a deep and  abiding purpose to prove his worth and the wisdom of the electors.  No interest of the ward of city will be overlooked and alL electors will be regarded as friends.  With hearty thanks. I am, yours,  PRANK TRIMBLE.  MAYOR JAMES FINDLAY  Mayor Findlay Appreciates Good=wiU of Electors  For the confidence and goodwill of the electors,  who, at the polls on the 11th inst., committed to  my hands the honor and responsibilities of the  City of Vancouver, I sincerely return thanks. He  that would not or could not appreciate such an  expression of trust would thereby reveal and unpardonable egotism.  The services of Mr. Croot, manager of the cam  paign, and the^leading newspapers of our city, are  hereby acknowledged, also the friendly and efficient help of the chairman and secretaries of Ward  organizations, with all friends who aided in the  contest. My constant study will be to justify the  action of the electors whose vote made me the servant of the city.  JAMES FINDLAY.  \ -  W. R. Owen  Park Commissioner  For the confidence reposed in me by the aov������*  ercign electors of Vancouver I am pleased and  thankful. This year will present many park prob*  lems���������problems the solution of which will affect  this city for good or ill in the near and remoU  future. To the solution of these problems yon  have called me. To this task I apply myself with  diligence and pleasure. I sincerely desire that  the outcome will prove that your confidence is  not misplaced.  Accept my thanks.  WM. B. OWEN.  SELLING DRINK  TOjmiLDREN  (Prof: E. Qdlura,JI.A., B. S.)  When a Druggist in Grandview, or any other  place, sells intoxicating liquor to children, he  should be put out of business, and put into penitentiary. It is time for respectable citizens to  take a grip on all 'such men ar care more for a  ,Cfew paltry dollars, than far. children* mothers  and homes. When a man knows that a woman,  a mother is a dmnkard, who neglects her children, and makes her home a hell on earth, through  that drink; and still sells to her, or to others for  her, he has no claim as a respectable business man.  And honest, decent people should pass him by  for others who carry on a legitimate business.  There is no danger of my letter on this subject  hurting innocent and upright druggists, for the  public know well the difference between crooks  and -upright men. This question is in the hands  of the public. And if I mistake not, one of two  things will happen at an early date. Either there  will be a change, or one man less will be doing  business. We shall soon see. No power on earth  cfin defy -a Vancouver community when determined injustice is perpetrated in its midst. This  is caution number-ONE. ^.   ,  Electors of Ward Eight, accept my unfeigned  gratitude for your confidence in selecting me as  one of your aldermen this year. In accepting I  promise you service to the best of my ability that  you and I alike may be satisfied. The office carries with it heavy duties and demands constant  study and care.- You expect my best; I will give  it.   Thank you!  SIDNEY MILLER.  E. S. Knowlton  Park Commissioner  Electors of this great city, I thank you most  sincerely for declaring your confidence in me at  the polls. As park commissioner I hope to do you  good and faithful service from January to December. Public parks require our best service  and judgment, especially when foundations are  being laid.   You deserve my best and shall have it.  E. S. KNOWLTON.  In this public way, through the columns of the  Western Call, I thank all such as by vote or influence helped to elect me school trustee, a position I truly appreciate, notwithstanding its arduous obligations and responsibilities.  I covet the best things for our schools and our  children.  WILLIAM CLUBB.  -V'  &������?  Tk  .-IV  "    r     -        ij fa--  ���������rf.

I had an  interesting trip and iny old friends  gave me a hearty welcome after an  absence of nearly nineteen years. On  my 'way to England I met an American gentleman in Michigan, who started to talk to me about annexation. I  told him we were hardly prepared to  take them over yet, but he might rest  assured that when we did annex them  we would look after them and see  they were well taken care of. I told  another American that annexation,  whenever it came about would mean  a flag with a jack in one corner and  a maple leaf in the other, flying over  the Capitol at Washington.  I found matters greatly improved in  England, Fruitgrowers in the west especially were adopting up-to-date methods of cultivatln and were planting  the best and newest varieties of fruit  especially apples, plums and strawberries. In the villages I found old  ramshackle, unsanitary, cottages torn  down and replaced by neat, substantial dwellings with tasty flower gardens.  I spent some time in the Channel  Islands and was struck with their  amazing fertility, especially Jersey.  This Island, which is twelve miles  long by six miles wide and contains  39,580 English acres, exported in one  year, 60.505 tons of potatoes, value,  ������462,895. It was interesting to see  the original "Jersey" cows tethered  in the fields. There was a heavy crop  of tomatoes both there and in Guernsey this year and when I was there in  August the exporting was in full  swing. I saw some Bplendid little  fields of wheat and the Jersey cabbages celebrated in song:  "ere we grow the cabbages ten feet  high." ���������  - Jersey contains a population of over  52,000 which is greatly augumented in  Summer by thousands of visitors from  England and France.  By special invitation I visited my  old landlord, The Rt Hon. Earl of  Edgecombe, who was very pleasant to  me and as a mark of the -interest he  took in me presented me with his portrait, which is one of the most valued  Bouvenirs of my trip. His lordship  manifested great interest in all that  related to Canada, especially to B. C.  I visited the "Festival of Empire" at  the Crystal Palace and had a proof  there of the interest tbe British public  was taking in Canadian affairs. I  heard the opinion freely expressed  that the Canadian exhibits were by  far the best there.  While I was in England some of the  large land owners were selling their  land,In large and small parcels. The  Duke of Bedford sold nearly all his  Devonshire property by auction and  realized fairly good prices (mostly to  his tenants). The County Councils  were also expropriating considerable  'areas for small holdings. I have no  doubt this movement will eventually  work out all right as ft will act as an  incentive to the people to get back  to the land. On September 25th I contracted cellulitis and blood poison in  my right leg which necessitated two  surgical operations; one on September  30th and the other on October 5th. My  Cousin Dr. Laury made 12 incisions in  my leg and by the blessing of God on  his skillful treatment I was soon on  the way to rapid recovery. I left England on Nov. 1st and reached home  on Nov. 15th.  F. L. VOSPER.  SILVER  CUPS AS  BONSPIEL  PRIZES.  NORTH BATTLEFORD, Sask.���������  Railway development on a large scale  has been scheduled for North Battle-  ford and the immediate vicinity for  the coming year. Particularly stimulating to local values is the decision  of the C. P. R. to run their new line  across the river Into North Battleford.  It is now only about seven years  since the first railway was' built  through North Battleford; but, today,  practically all homesteads in the near  vicinity of the road have been taken  up. In these seven years the town of  North Battleford has expanded from  practically nothing into a city of over  3,000, having her own municipal water  works, sewerage, electric light plant  and public buildings, all of tbe latest  and most approved type. The town's  first big bonspiel booked .to open January 15 is now engaging the attention  of leading citizens, and six handsome  trophies have already been secured as  prizes.  RECORD SHIPMENT OF  THOROUGH BR EOS.  VANCOUVER, B. C ���������Irving H.  Wheatcroft, an American, and owner  of several large stock farms near  Lexington, .Kentucky, is telling of a  record shipment which he effected  from St. Paul to Vancouver a few days  ago over the Soo Line and the Canadian acific. The shipment consisted  of 150 thoProughbred horses booked  through to Australia via Vancouver.  The special train carrying these horses cut down the usual time of freight  shipments over this route by many  hours, the time occupied being a little  less than four days. Mr. Wheatcroft's  only stipulation of Importance at the  time of shipment was that the horses  should be delivered in good condition  at tbe docks. Railway officials are now  preparing for an extraordinary Inrush  of new settlers into Canada in 1912,  one estimate setting the figure at 400,  000. Leading bankers are also issuing  forecasts of a banner year of prosperity and expansion.  GOOO PROGRESS AT  BIGGAR.  BIGGAR, Sask., Jan 2.���������Prominent  railway officials state that the new  Biggar-Calgary line now nearly completed will be the longest and most Important of all G. T. P. branch lines In  Western Canada. Something like 50  miles of this branch line are expected  to be in operation early in the year.  It is noted that. Biggar was not even  incorporated as a village until the  Spring of 1909; and the town now  takes its place as the terminus and  junction point of the new line of steel.  The fact that Biggar is the first town  In Western Canada on the G. T. P.  line between Winnipeg and Edmonton  to instal a thoroughly modern water  works system is also pointed out as  Indicative of the energetic spirit now  permeating this section of the west.  Building operations for the year show  a neat record in net results.

Lethbrldge, Alta.���������A number of recent occurrences have afforded special encouragement to the local Board  of Trade in their work of "boosting  Lethbrldge." The adoption ot tbe  single tax idea is regarded with  marked favor among business men.  The announcement has also gone out  that Lethbrldge Is to have a handsome armory designed for future as  well as present needs. For the coming dry fanning congress, plans are  being formed for handling the biggest  crowds ever gathered In this part of  the West. The proposed new post  office building now appears to be an  established fact for the early days  of the future. In sports also Lethbrldge Is to occupy a place on tbe(  map; and well formulated plans havej  been drawn up for the professional hadlong.  WINNIPEG, Man.���������The large possibilities open In Canada today in the  field of mixed farming and market  gardening are gaining recognition  even in unexpected quarters. Luigi  Toninl, formerly of Trevisco, Italy,  after extensive experience in cultivating a farm of 1,000 acres in the province of Venetta, and in raising a large  variety of products, recently arrived  in Winnipeg and plans to engage in  mixed farming in Canada, employing  chiefly French and Italian peasants.  Mr. Toninl has signified his Intention  of going back to first principles by  starting in Immediately to master the  English language and to study actual  farming conditions at close range. He  states that in his opinion the money  possibilities for the market gardener  in Canada are very much greater than  in Italy. As if in confirmation of this  opinion comes the current bulletin of  the Manitoba agricultural department  ���������the first to be Issued by Hon. George  Lawrence���������In which It Is shown that  the average yields for 1911 in every  class of farm products are the highest for the past five years, the returns  to Manitoba farmers from dairy and  farm products amounting to the hand  some total of $1,786,073 for the year.

REGINA, Sask., Jan 2nd.���������The proposition of Malcolm Rosb, superintendent of parks, to plant 1,000 shade  trees along Regina thoroughfares during the coming year is regarded as  typical of Western enterprise in this  part of the province. "The more we  can plant the better it Is for the city  at large," says Mr.' Ross.

Montreal, Jan. 2.���������There is still' no  ice reported from any point in the  river or gulf, and those interested in  the port of Montreal consequently have  the tantalizing experience of one of the  world's finest waterways and ports devoid of any movements of vessels other than the ferryboats which are now,  unless a very sudden change In the  weather takes place, almost certain to  run longer than the existing record, established in 1878, when these boats  were in use as late as New Year's Day.  A silent fleet of about 250 sail is now  moored in the mouth of the Richelieu  Rier at Sorei, awaiting, the passage of  the ice-bound winter which, so far, has  not arrived. The boats belong mostly  to the Government, the Richelieu-Ontario, the Sincenhes-McNaughton companies.      _,   '  The buoys marking the channel have  all been removed and lighthouse keepers have gone into winter quarters.  Most of the canals have, been cleared  of water, preparatory to' a thorough  overhauling. Acting on representations  made by the Board of Trade here and  at other places the canals will be opened for traffic on an earlier date next  'spring than ever before. Thus the inland navigation companies hope, to a  certain extent, to make up for the loss  of time caused this season and last by  the low depth of water. This grievance, too, may be remedied to a certain  extent, for such strong protests have  arisen all along the St. Laurence  againet power companies diverting  water from the channel of the river  that it is believed the government has  put its foot down on any further concessions.  The Year in Banking.  Thornton, Davidson ft Co. in an able  review of the year In banking cast up  some interesting deductions:   Mr. Davidson says:  "The amalgamation which Is taking  place between the Canadian Bank of  Commerce and the Eastern Townships  Bank calls attention to the remarkable  number of changes which have taken  place In the hanking field la Canada  during the past year.  Comparing tbe situation at the end  of Noy.cmber--with that at the end of  December a year ago,-we find that the  number of chartered banks has increased by one. During the year, however, two new banks h&ve entered the  field, namely the Banque Internationale  and the Weyburn Security Bank. On  tbe other hand, one bank dsappeared,  namely, the United Empire, this having  been taken over by the Union Bank  of Canada. Now that the Eastern  Townships Bank is about to be taken  over by the Bank of Commerce, the  number of banks will be decreased by  one, so that, should the change be  made during the present month, the  year will end with twenty-eight chartered banks in Canada, being the same  number as at the end of 1910.  When a comparison is made between  the aggregate paid-up capital of the  Canadian banks, however, a very considerable change is seen. A year ago  the total amount was $99,676,693, while  at the end of November the amount  was $107,472,558. During the year,  therefore, there was an increase of  17,796,465 in the paid-up capital. There  is Btill to be added to this certain payments not yet completed on new issues  authorized. For instance, in the case  of the Bank of Montreal. $700,000 is to  be added to the paid-up capital. The  Royal Bank recently authorized $2,-  000.000 and the Bank of Hocbelaga  $500,000 new capital, while the Bank  of New Brunswick is issuing $100,0Q0.  This makes $3,300,000 to be added to  the above increase, so that when the  whole of the increased capital has been  issued practically $11,000,000 will have  been added to the figures as at the end  of 1910. In addition to this, it is expected that the Merchants Bank will  issue $1,000,000 extra, making $12,000,-  000 increase In sight, bringing tbe paid-  up capital of all the banks to the vicinity of $112,000,000. The addition of  tbe Banque Internationale du Canada  will largely swell this amount, it is  thought.  Swell Police Squad.  Montreal is soon to have the first  silk-hatted police squad in Its history  and as a result this promises to be a  difficult winter for the clever beggars,  or "panhandlers" as they are known,  who have been flocking to the city  with the idea of reaping their usual  rich reward in the most exclusive sections of the city. The new. squad is  being organized principally to protect  the theatre and club districts from the  operations of beggars of countrywide  fame who every winter through their  skilful work relieve pedestrians in  these districts of more than $250,000.  Already consternation has spread  among the select "pan handling" cir-  britles as "Louis the  c*i|^rt������i^;������Jid "Jimmy the Bone  GnlK>'ps^^-'o^erB':equally well  1rn*HP' !^i*t<iiiifli������ll to leave before  the silk hatted squad really get busy.

According to  the instructions issued the members  will have to parade the fashionable  districts clad in frock coats and silk  hats in the afternoon and in full evening dress at night. They will make no  arrests. They are expected to Berve  only as a lure for "panhandlers." When  approached for a "touch," their orders  are to string him along until a policeman in uniform is encountered and  lodge a complaint just as an ordinary  citizen would. Some of the Bquad  wanted to balk at wearing silk hats  but when the value of such headgear  as bait for mendicants was pointed out  they finally yielded.  Hey!��������� Hey?

The money  used to be paid to bim regularly by  the bookkeeper. On one occasion  when the poor man came around the  bookkeeper handed him only three dollars. The poor man remained standing quietly until the bookkeeper asked whether there was anything else  he wished.  "You must have made a mistake,"  he said, "I always get five."  "Yes," replied the bookkeeper.  "That has now been changed."  "Changed?   Why?"

(For the benefit of tnose who did  not see, during the election turmoil,  the  first part of these articles, the  Editor begs to reprint this again.)  * A Foreword. ,  It was intended in this issue of the  Western Call to commence a series  of articles frera a new viewpoint on  this subject, but owing to our going  to press earlier, an introduction to  this 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 beef  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 free-booters  and that is by playing their own game  to meet combine with combination.  Many attempts have been made  from time to time 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, the  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 4s  levied on them at present.  It cannot have escaped notice of  thinking men, that the price of all  foodstuffs 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 ft be prevented is certainly a great problem, but hard as it is,  in the 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-keep-  ing a combination of .the consumers.  In short, wrest the robber packers'  market into your own hands, and you  have their claws drawn.  Become your own wholesaler? Better than thaC become your own producers. In other words first organize  your markets, next your distribution,  and organize it well.  Form a New League free from all  party trammels of every kind, and  let it spread, and spread, until every  suitable district has been got into  line.  A stupendous task, my Masters, but  not more so than many an army hare,  fought and conquered for in the past.  Are we men of> lesser breed than  our forefathers were? One warning-^  no cranks and food reformers can carry a standard inthis army; no party  politician, as such, can lift bis voice  here. Neither must it be labelled  with any ism whatsoever. On the  contrary it must be free from all  bonds and ties, of any nature, but just  that one object such a new league  will have for its own.  There are���������there .must be���������in this  great cityv good thinkers who can  grope a way out of the clutches of  the combines once they get together  and do some mental culture.  Let any such who have the desire  to help in this great cause send in  their names, and any suggestions  from time to time as the project is  developed in these columns. One  stipulation, there must be no parsons,  Socialists, labeled as such, or any  food cranks whatever, who are wanted are practical men in every walk of  life who are home-keepers and have  to foot the food bills week by week,  and month by month.  Meanwhile, my friends, put on your  considering caps and think it out each  one for yourselves, and one for all.  Finally, let each one of you talk  over the subject with ten of your  friends���������you can all find ten men  ready to listen to you. Keep tab on  those who are ready to hear more  about this.  *   *   *  Before dipping into the thick of my  subject, it will not be amiss to say  how these articles come to be written.  The writer was once a little startled,  after thinking over the problem for  a few months, believing It to be the  fond child of his own brain to begin  to stumble across, in various unexpected quarters, the same ideas being  expressed by other writers, and to  finally blurt upon the fact, that the  whole idea he had been theorizing  about was in Germany actually in full  blast and operating as a going and  very prosperous concern.  I will, for the purpose Of getting into closer touch with my readers, mention a personal matter. Talking over  the curious similarity of ideas with  a friend, he said some of the savants  hold that there is a kind of "mental  wireless" in vogue, whereby minds  attuned upon similar subjects as other  minds receive an impression in their  own minds of such ideas as they are  ripe for.  A kind of mental Marconism.  That exactly expresses it, so without  trying to account for these mental  phenomena as telepathy or any' other  occult science, I will ask my ^readers  to try and accept that condition of  affairs as a fact. It will help us considerably.  Let us thoroughly get that idea fixed that there are those thought waves  floating around which we can absorb  into our own mental receivers. It  will assist us to think alike on the  subject, as until we do, very little  progress along the desired road can  be made.  Stimulate the thought of the Council of Ten, who are wanted, in each  district to work this thing out.  Having thoroughly got that into our  heads, pause a few moments and set  down the men's names you mean to  interview on the subject. Having  done this, it brings us to the necessity  of grasping a central idea; the side  Issues will come as we go along.  The central idea I wish readers to  first grasp is this, THAT THE COST  OF FOOD STUFFS IS MANIPULATED, against your interest, by a set of  robber packers called a COMBINE.  Perhaps the word cost is not correct.  Let us get it right as we go along.  Suppose we say, then, that the SELLING PRICE OF FOODSTUFFS is  packers.  Let us think this out for a few mo-  manipulated by a set of robbers called  ments, as to how prices are raised.  WHY are they?  >WHY is it possible?  '   The two principal reasons are that  they, the combine, have the capital to  use for their own profit, and they have  the MARKETS. '       '  That looks a cinch for food scalpers  as Swift, Griffin, Armour & Co., who  are of course all one and the same  robber under different names.  They hold the markets everywhere,  not only here in Vancouver, but in  Victoria, New Westminster, Kamloops,  Calgary, and everywhere else when it]  is worth while.  The British government dealt them  one of the most staggering blows  they have' ever had when by a stroke  of the .pen they removed, a market  worth |20,000,000 from their clutches  merely by a standing rule of the  House of Commons being enforced,  which puts any firm out of business  with the Government���������English or foreign���������who have anything of the nature  of a legal entanglement in their affairs.  The State probe across the line was  held to be such a disability.   ���������  . Let us now see to it that the packer  crew do not get in by a back door and  supply the same old contract'under a  new name, which they are capable of  doing, if it can be worked. I can easily imagine Messrs. Swiftos, Grifflanio,  Armour! & Co. doing business at the  same old stand under a Mexican or  Argentine cloak.  We must see to it, however, that in  this case their claws are effectually  cut for good and all, or your food  will cost you more as time goes on.  The Council of Ten I call for  should get busy and write as many of  the Canadian members of the British  House as possible, asking them to demand a declaration of origin, or source  of contractors' supply, and a further  one from each shipper that each shipper guarantees that the American  combine had no part or lot in tbe  shipments.  Another resolution that the Imperial  House might well pass would be one  to make it punishable by heavy fine to  have any business dealings in buying  from the robber-packer combiue.  As these are not the days of the  French revolution, but the 20th century, we cannot take the vampires to  the nearest lamp-post or use the gull-  otine on them.  Not the kind, at all events, that was  so popular formerly.  We cannot confiscate their capital  or* confiscate their plants, but we have  machinery just as effective if we get  together and combine our markets out  of their hands.  Some of my readers will perhaps  say, "Oh, it's co-operation that is  meant." --  Yes and no.  Not co-operation euch as they practice in Britain, where they try and do  away with the middleman. That  would never answer in this country.  It has been tried, I think, and failed  many tiroes. The laws are not framed  to its smooth working.  As stated here, it is not proposed  to do away with the middleman, but  rather to make use of him as our new  distributor. He is in the business;  he understands it and often is a right  smart bright fellow struggling along  on under an enormous load of rent and  expenses that swallow up the greater  part of his profits.  My idea is, that to many such a  one it would come as an untold blessing to have the commission of two or  three hundred  additional  customers'  supplies to distribute in his own district, provided that it can be so organized that the producer ships straight  to him, anil the consumer offers him  his custom in advance.  Think this well over before the next  article, and you bright middlemen, who  are willing to put your shoulder to the  wheels, if it will bring you additional  trade and in cases turn you into a  wholesaler, get busy. Sit down and  write a line to."Pathfinder," with your  own suggestions as to manner of  working this scheme in your own particular line of fopd stuffs.  The German experiment will be  dealt with in our next article.  ' PATHFINDER.  (Continued Page 5)  THE CITY  BEAUTIFUL.

SPECIAL CONTRIBUTIONS  (Continued from Page 4)  BUILDING NOTES.  That 1912 is to be a banner year in Vancouver*  is beyond all doubt.   The work already in sight  runs into many millions of dollars, the largest  jobs, of course, being the C P. R new depot and  ��������� hotel.--/  Considerable speculation exists as to just how  the company will handle this new depot. Will  they rise to the occasion and give the city something truly metropolitan in size and beauty f  Looking forward to the ndt very distant future,  it seems that it would be a wise step on the  C. P. R.'s part to plan two depots at the same  time, one to be contained within the other; the second one would, of course, be used in the future  for that outer circle metropolitan railway or  "tube" that will one day run out around Kit-  silano, Point Grey, South Vancouver to Eburne,  and back by Hastings and Burnaby, thus linking  up all the Vancouvera into one comprehensive  transportation scheme.  Amongst other large building projects for this  year may be mentioned Point Grey University,  St. Paul's new hospital, Birk'| block, Ramsay's  Hotel Co.'s fine new hotel, the new city jail, city  hall, two large theatres, several big apartment  blocks, the new Y. M. C, A., possibly a Great  Northern yards and depot, Grand Trunk hotel,  and last, but not least, the fine new Wolfe-Barry  bridge across the Second Narrows.  This, together with all the eity sewer and water  improvements, street works, schools, etc., will  make 1912 a remarkable year of building activity.

We hear a good  deal in these days of the "union of the churches,"  would it be too much to hope to see them all take,  a hand in building a part of this���������to mark such  an epoch? Say, for example, each church undertook to build one panel of the Chapter house���������  which could be a detached ereetion from the cathedral proper, but linked up to it. Here might be  held not only the convocations of the Anglican  Church but, likewise, the annual conferences of  all the churches.  have been taken to so-called trade schools, both  in the Old Country and elsewhere.  For lack of actual clever craftsmen as trainers,  a trade school, in many branches of the building  trades especially, would be an utter failure. What  is wanted is a well-equipped institution where  mechanics as well as students can perfect themselves in the higher theoretical branches of craftsmanship. Mechanics can in no sense be taught a  trade in such a school, but students can learn  the rudiments, and mechanics can lift themselves  higher by a well appointed and' carefully staffed  school of technique. v  Such a one as Montreal has just built herself  on Sherbronke Street, close to McGill College.  Here are lecture theatres for chemistry, mining,  mechanics, physics, with appropriate laboratories.  Well appointed electrical machine and carpenter  shops, and, I ������think, a good testing and experimental room and museum;  The college is administered by a separate body,  called Technical Committee, who are, I am afraid,  merely political puppets of the late Laurier Government and not chosen for their educational or  technical learning in any way. In Vancouver the  School Trustees would be the proper body to manage such an institution.  Measles Not Spreading.  The epidemic ot measles. which baa  been, bothering South Vancouver'for'  soine time, is evidently subsiding. No  fresh cases were reported last week.  |V       False Creek Arbitration.  x The ^ Great Northern arbitration  [cases in connection with False Creek  (property waa reconsidered by tbe ar  bitrators laBt, Friday, the decision,  first announced to be given on January  10th, has been etxended bo that it will  be due on February 1st.  Suppose it to be octogonal in form, each of the  eight bays or panels might have a suitable inscription setting forth the congregation which  had erected that portion, and the chairman's seat  for each meeting might be appropriately placed  beneath such memorial.  Here is a chance to "let brotherly love continue '' -in ���������'' posse" as well as " in esse."  Speaking of schools reminds me of the masterly  way in which a Vancouver contractor, Mr. Donald  Mathesion, is handling the new Britannia School,  especially when the season of the year is taken  into account. This school was only begun.last  November and the reinforced concrete work almost constitutes a record for Vancouver, the roof  slab being reached in eight weeks from the start.  In one day nearly- 300 barrels of cement were  used, over 70 .workmen being employed upon the  works. The contractor stands a strong chance of  winning a handsome bonus by handing over the  school away ahead of time. This is something  new for the School Trustees, which will be much  appreciated.  It is refreshing to find that a local, firm can  give points and a good beating to some of the  mighty big "guns" in point of speed of construction.  Last Wednesday morning Magistrate  Walker fined F. Creamer, of Edmonds,  Burnaby, $10 for blasting within tbe  limits'Of the municipality without a  permit. A recent charge of not having  given the nearby residents due warning was dismissed.  An interesting Wedding.  A wedding took place on the morning of Wednesday, Jan. 10th, between  Assistant Fire Chief Jordan, of South  Vancouver, and Miss Alma Jewell,  of Grandview, the ceremony being  performed by the Rev. Mr. Pye, in  the Presbyterian Church, Ferrla Rd.  Another Explosion in 8outh Vancouver  While Mr. Beaton was drying out a  small quantity of blasting powder on  Twenty-third avenue last week, a  spark from the fire ignited the powder,  causing an explosion. One or two  panes of glass in the vicinity were  broken by the explosion, but, except  a blow on the leg, Mr. Beaton escaped  unhurt  Another building of which Vancouver is sadly  in need is a, technical school-���������which must not  be confounded with a trade school���������that is quite  another matter altogether���������and strong objections  This is in striking contrast to the long-drawn-out  job at the tallest building in the British Empire,  the Labor Hall et al. No doubt special causes  have been at work to spell delay in each caser  I cannot close these notes without congratulating the firm of Messrs. McAlpine, Robertson &  Co. in securing the important contract for the new  cement plant which the English Cement Associa-  tion are erecting at Tod Inlet. Competition is  the salt of trade, one is taught, but I doubt if cement will be much cheaper in consequence���������for a  while at least. New works take a long time to:  get into shape, consumption increases and the demand remains strong.  Undoubtedly cement is to6 high on the coast,  as it can be manufactured around 75 cents a barrel,  and the selling price is nearer $2.75 to the small  consumer. The bigger men get in around $2.06,  I understand. The discrimination is too wide;  altogether.  Victoria Heights.  . The second meeting ot the Victoria  Heights Improvement Association was  held on Tuesday, Jan. 9th, when the  executive committee presented the'  constitution and by-laws which they  had prepared. Mr. A. H. Roden suggested that the name of the organisation should be changed so as to bring  In the name Victoria Road, but after a  short discussion it waa decided to  leave the present name unchanged.  k ' ���������    ������-__  Charge of Cruelty to Animals Dismissed, i  Last Wednesday morning Mr. A������,&  Barnes was charged before Magistral  McArthur with cruelty to animals la  connection with a horse which Inspeo>  tor Robinson, of the Society for the  Prevention of Cruelty to Animals considered to be unfit for, service. "Rather  than allow a horse in such a condition  to be worked, our society would buy  such animals and destroy them!" said  Inspector Robinson. He further said  that the horse waa in such a bad condition that It was unable to chew Its  food, and that when it fell to the  Btreet It waa unable to rise without  assistance. Constable Winters, who  waa called tor the defence, said that  any horse might fall in such weather  and that conditions were not bo bad  as stated.  Tbe case was dismissed.  COR. 11th AVE.

It was on the tip of his uncle's  tongue to ask for Bome explanation ol  the very gratified1 tone in' which Master Charles made this remark, but the  head waiter entered, solemnly, with  the air of respectful and discreet decorum which only an English family  butler or a head waiter can assume  without burlesque.  "Beg pardon, gentlemen," he said,  "but 1 thought you would like to know  about tbe lady in No. 11, Mrs. Vansit-  tart." '.'.���������������������������  "Yes, what of her?" demanded  Traill, whilst Pyne found himself  imagining that which caused bin heart  to beat more rapidly than even the  fight for life in the saloon of the Chinook.

A policeman haa Just  called to say that she was taken ill,  and ia now bein' cared for at Mr.  Brand's house."  Uncle and nephew glared at each  other as men do when they call the  gods to witness that no madder words  could be spoken. Before the waiter,  they perforce restrained themselves.  But Pyne shouted:  "Where is the policeman?"  "He is down below, sir. Shall 1  bring him up?"  '  Sergeant Jenkins, however, was too  loyal In his friendship to Brand to tell  them exactly how It came about thai  Mrs. Vansittart was sheltered In La  buraum Cottage. He admitted that  he directed the lady to the house In  tbe first instance, and that Mr. Brand  toM him subsequently to convey tbe  stated message to the hotel.

"Perhaps half an hour. Whilst I am  out I will make some inquiries as to  the condition of our other friends ol  ;:ie Chinook."  "By the way, many of them must be  destitute. It is my desire.

Stanhope,  tantalized  her friends by Bmiling serenely and  telling them nothing when they pestered her with questions. That is to  nay, she spoke not one word about the  lady who was being nursed back to  health in the lighthouse-keeper's cottage, but filled their souls with bitterness when she hinted1 at matvels concerning Constance and Enid.  In such a small place, where every  man's affairs are canvassed by his  neighbors, it was impossible to prevent an.atmosphere of mystery from  clinging to Mrs. Vansittart. Again,  the gossips were greatly concerned  about Enid.

There are only two kinds of people  in the world���������the people who live in  the shadow and gloom and those who  live on the sunny side of the street.  These shadowed ones are sometimes  called pessimists; sometimes people  of melancholy temperament; (sometimes they are called disagreeable  pe&ple; but, wherever they go, their  characteristic is this: their shadow  always travels on before them. . . .  These people never bear their own  burden, but expose all their wounds  to others.

A  maid, who was given charge of the  two children, told Pyne that Mrs.  Vansittart had been greatly upset the  previous evening.- The girl was sure  that tbe lady had passed nearly an  hour in tears kneeling by the side of  her bed. Then, having regained control of herself to some extent, she  rang for the maid and asked at what  time the first train left for London  next day. She ordered her breakfast  at an hour which seemed to indicate  her Intention to depart by that train,  said that she would leave instructions  with Mr. Pyne concerning tbe children, and gave the maid two letters  which she had written. These were  to be delivered at nine o'clock. It  was now nine o'clock. What was to  he done with tbe letters?  As they were addressed to Pyne and  his uncle respectively he soon settled  that point.  .  His letter read:  "Dear Mr. Pyne���������I am leaving for  London quite early, so I will not see  you again in Penzance. I have supplied tbe little girls with all the gar-  meats they will need during the next  few days.

In that event, kindly write to me, care  of my bankers.  "Yours very sincerely,  "B. Vansittart"  Come along, kids," said Pyne.  am delivered bound to the torture."  '  He passed out into the street, wjien  Elsie's   sharp   eyes, searching for a  shop, suddenly caught sight of Enid  hurrying towards tbe hotel.  The child ran to meet her, and Enid  flushed with excitement, began to explain that Mrs. Vansittart was in bed,  Buffering from collapse and in a feverish state. The doctor's verdict waa  that she was in some danger, but  would recover if carefully tended and  kept in absolute quiet.  "Is Constance with her?" asked  Pyne.  "Yes-"  "And" where Is Mr. Brand?"  .  "He will be here soon.

Here, Indeed,  was a choice tit-bit for tbe milkman,  and the postman, and the butcher's  fcnd grocer's boys. From this lower  current the stream of talk flowed upwards until it reached the august  drawing-room of Mrs. Taylor-Smith.  She drove in frantic haste to Lady  Margaret's villa, and fired questions  broadside.  "Oh,   yes,"   said   Jack's   mother,  fuavely. "It is quite true. Of course  have known it from the first.

Some years ago, when he was In  Egypt, he waa having dinner with  some friends, when an orderly entered  the room and said there was a messenger waiting outside to see him,  General Hunter could not leave the  table at that moment, and told the  orderly so.  "What shall I do with him, then;  sir?" asked the orderly.  "Oh, knock him down!" aald Hunter  impatiently as he turned away.  Five minutes later the man returned bearing obvious marks of the fray-  He saluted stiffly and .said to tbe astonished general:  "I had a bit of a Job, sir, hut I  knocked him down at the finish."  This recalls a similar incident in  which King Edward VII. when Prince  of Wales was the central figure, says  The Tatler. During his tour in India  in 1875 a bunting party was in progress, and a number of tbe royal suite  were mounted on elephants, when a  member of the party called the attention of the prince -to the fact that his  native driver had tumbled off his elephant. '      ' '   . .  "What shall I do with him?" he asked, with a laugh.  "Oh, shoot him by all means!" replied the prince.  To his amazement this order was  taken literally, and the native prince  in charge of the party ordered the unfortunate driver to be shot immediately. The Prince of Wales had to make  a hasty intervention on the man's behalf or the sentence would have been  carried out without loss of time-  Grocery  The House of Improvement  Groceries  Fresh> Best in Quality, Abundant in Quantity  The^lncl that Please.

It has  usually been estimated at around  400,000,000. But hitherto the census,  being taken merely for the purpose of  facilitating taxation, has been contented with noting the number of adults,  leaving out of consideration Infants,  children, and aged men.

Mr. Traill read It to  him.    It ran:  "Dear Mr. Traill���������I cannot marry  you. Please forgive me. I did not  realise, when you honored me with  your proposal, that an insuperable obstacle existed. That is all���������a lame  explanation���������but complete so far as it  goes. A woman who has wrecked her  lilt finds It hard to choose her words.  "Your sincere friend,  i "E. Vansittart."  They discussed these curt notes  during breakfast.  "I do not like their tone," said Mr,  Traill, gravely. "They Impress me as  the hurried resolutions of a woman  driven to extremities. Were it not  Sot her request about the children, I  should think what you thought last  night, Charlie, when  that  policeman  turned up."  "I must have telephoned my Ideas  to you mighty quick," was the retort  "My dear boy, even at this moment  we don't know what she intended to  do. Why did she go out?

THE HOUSE THAT STOOD UPON  A ROCK  A week passed. In the fickle man-  Dry of the outer world tbe story of tne  Gulf Rock lighthouse was becoming  mellow with age. Men now talked of  iwar in Africa, of the Yellow Peril, of  some baccarat squabble In a West-end  club. But its vitality lingered in Penzance. There were side issues which  Pyne's device had kept from the pub-  Uc-keni but which, ins tawn^xpjk^nos  Inake any suggestion."  "But what will be tbe outcome?"  "How can I tell?

He believes* she was, but is  not certain."-  i "Father" waa Mr. Traill; Brand remained "dad." Thus did Enid solve  jthe difficulty.  '. "Is she aware that Constance knewa  'she is her mother?"  . "We think so. Indeed, we are sure.  She has been so HI, and Is yet so fragile, that we dare not excite her in  the least degree. So Constance haa  been very careful, but every look,  every syllable, shows that her mother  la In no doubt on that point."  "It's a pretty hard nut to crack,"  said Pyne. He blew cigar smoke into  rings. Seemingly the operation aided  reflection.  "Say, Enid," he went on. "If the  weather is fine to-morrow, do -you  think Connie would come out for a  drive?"  "I don't know.   Certainly she needs  some fresh air.    What between her  anxiety and her mother's illness, they  are beginning to look like sisters."  - "lull mention to Connie^ la, her fa-  modern lines. The investigation,  which was carried on through the custom authorities, has, except in a few  provinces, been completed, and according to its result the total inhabitants  of China are 439,214,000.

Away to the north at the head of the  land,  Where   wild   the   winds   blow   o'er   its  headlands so grand;  Where   the sun  riser early  and  shines  until   late.  Tiles the empire of Maine, the old Fine  Tree state.  Her   forests   are   glorious,"   her   proud  rivers  How  A-down   to   the  coasts  where   the salt  breezes  blow.  While all o'er the land,  from mountain  to sea,  The   people   dwell   safely,   happy   and  free.  In  the days of the fathers, as  oft has  been told,  The   cup   that   Intoxicates    freely    was  sold;  But the  people  In  poverty  rather grew  worse.  And the drink habit proved, as always,  a curse.  So  the people  arose in the strength  ol  their   might;  Wrote   out   the   stern   Maine   Jaw   and  passed   It   at   sight.  And the  law  has proved   righteous,  and  wholesome   and   great,  Bringing: peace to the people and  fame  to the state.  So the years have pnssetl gently, bringing joy in their wake.  And prosperous times from sea coast  to  lake:  The fathers departed in pence to their  rest.  With hope and good conscience so signally blest;  They.left to their children in trust the  decree  That the state from the Tum curse  should always he free.  But now comes the question, so simple  and   just: '  Will ye sons of the fathers be true to  your   trust?  Will ye trail your state flag in the dust  for base  gain?  Bring    lasting   disgrace   on    the    brave  state of Maine?  Will   ye  dare    to    dishonor    your    own  father's  graves.  And   make  of your children  a  vile  race  of slaves?  Will    ye    license    bad    men    wretched  liquor to sell.  The  drug  that will' corral   your  people  to hell?  All   over   the   land  Christian   men   hope  and pray.  That ye maintain the law and hold on  your way.  Rev. C. S.  Nutter. D.  D.

Great care is" required at this point, and  no doubt the new Mayor will carefully examine  into all these matters, in due time.  , The heat of battle is over. Good men have  lost and won. The spirit that prevailed throughout the campaign was most creditable to the majority of the candidates as well as the electors.  In writing short letters in times of urgency,  there is a danger of hurting someone by statements not amply expanded and fenced.  One of my long-time friends felt hurt at my  strong references to certain American agitators of  an unprincipled class, who .have been/acting with  a high hand. These rude fellows have had two  lessons since the beginning of last September. ���������  Now I have no compunctions in attacking rowdies and grafters of any and all nations. In my  letter I had to deal with those of only one nation, that of Uncle Sam; I had no reference to  manly, honorable Americans, and they are too  sensible to be hurt when I or any other writer,  may cudgel the rowdy class who have come from  that land to teach Canadians "a thing or two,"  on how to run elections, and work their sweet  will. We are not as soft ns they imagine, and  know well how to handle them without gloves.  The majority who come from the United States  and dwell among us, we tind all we could desire  in them as men and citizens. There is none better/ And they are too wise and strong to take  up the cause of the grafters, whom any.of us,  either in private or in public, may attack.  JOSEPH RODGERS  I. XL.
