NOTES OF THE WEST  [<*,  ��������� t  *  "What do they know of England, who only  England know," must now be made to read:  "What do they know of Canada, who only Ontario  know.!" The churlish, short-sighted attitude  over the Oriental question exhibited by the Toronto'professor shows a narrow, non-enquiring mind  that speaks not well for his professorship. This  whole Oriental question is being treated far' too  to' lightly of by Canadians at> large. We must .make  h British Columbia a white man's country and set  V about it in no uncertain spirit; and here I must  l\: "offer a sharp rebuke to the Canadian youth���������  who need a spanking; anyway one is due them  for their lack of "sand," whieh is the onjy term  1 can use to express the apathy they exhibit towards most public matters. >*  They seem to think there are no dollars in  such questions and act. with a supinessthat is  lamentable and very surprising to the British  born, who take their "high polities" quite seriously. Wake up, young Canada and do your  duty now, lest sfome little race of brown men do  ithe "waking up" for you!      ;    ���������  -Can any one tell me, for example, why the  <3. P. R. condescends to employ Jap bell-hops at  the leading hotels? These almond-eyed sons of  the East may be a trifle cheaper, but picturesque  or efficient they are hot. Ask for any information, try and give them an intelligent message,  land me no understan' is about the usual reply.  If the mighty C. P. R, must employ Japs, and I do  not see why, they might at least see that they  pass some sort of examination of intelligence in  our mother tongue. ���������  The appointment of Mr. F. P. Guteliu^, chief  engineer of the C. P. ,R., upon the inquiry into G.  T. P. and Transcontinental' will be acclaimed in  railway engineering circles where Mr. Gutelius is  [V well known as a fearless critic^ and by that is  meant one who will award praise or blame, in  ������qual measure where each is due.  He is thoroughly, practical, having worked  his way from rodman, assistant engineer, general  superintendent to chief engineer?  He succeeded  Mk F; p. Brady, now on the Intercolonial man-  \ agement.  As. general superintendent of the Lake  Superior division, and with headquarters at North  k Bay, millions were spent on the division whilst  1 F- P. GuJeliUs Was in charge, and it is due to hi*  ..' engineering skiU that the road in that division is  i<������ such first-class shape.   Majo>^Hodgson may  now get a hearing of what went on under the  Laurier graft���������the biggest steal in Canadian his-.  , tory will now see the light of day.  Can anyone tell roe what's wrong with the  . Vancouver Post Office that so many incoming letters are noi now stamped with the date of delivery. I understood.it was a strict postal regulation that this date stamp be affixed. How can  one trace deliveries else?  J am rebuked in some quarters for taking  the C. N. R. to task so sharply. IV was Mackenzie & Mann, and I see William Mackenzie came  away from Victoria without the Peace River  Railway in bis pocket. ���������''  *  Now this-must be a Vancouver, or rather a  British Columbia Railway, and any connection  ,   with M. & M. will only queer the deal in the  London niarkets, and is the one thing to he  avoided at all costs.  Your correspondent I. D. Vosper's interesting letter in last week's Western Call gave some  useful information, and it is worthy of note that  Old Country growers are beginning to take up  the planting of the better varieties of fruits, apples, etc. The value of the Jersey potato crop  over $20,000, is also amazing off this small strip  of island 6 miles by 12, a great portion of which is  a rocky barren waste.  It shows what can be done in British Columbia once we open up the land and get the right"  class of settlers. The government has undoubt-  . edly taken a step in the right direction with the  proposal to lighten the taxation of those who live  on the land. Something must be done to make it  more attractive to a sturdy yeoman class, and the  relief from taxation, for a number of years, is  one step that adds an inducement to "back to the  land" cry.  That patriotic and virile body, the Canadian  Club, had a big rally to meet Mr. Forbes Robertson in Dominion Hall. The great actor spoke  with charming grace and unaffectedness, as if he  were addressing old friends. Vancouver will give  him a royal welcome when he comes among us  again in Shakesperian roles. The writer remembers him many years ago playing "Orlando" to  Mary Anderson's "Rosalind." He has climbed  the very summit of stage-craft since those days  and is now" considered the finest Hamlet of the  age.  The recent daring holdup at the Royal Bank  in broad daylight is a bad advertisement for the  city and a bad advertisement for the bank itself.  Apart from the mere loss of the money, it does a  great amount of harm for the public to feel that  . their bankers cannot keep proper hold of the  money intrusted to them. No one can blame the  bank staff who certainly cannot expect to be  shot at on the mere pittance they are paid at  'present. Young Richardson showed more pluck  than wisdom In putting up the fight he did. The  remedy is for the banks generally to employ better paid staffs and give them time and money  enough to join the various athletic clubs, and take  part in the many sports that are going on, then,  perhaps, the bank clerks will be in finer trim and  training to take on the "yegg-men.

In our last article, published in last week's "CALL," on "Oriental Immigration," we discussed the question from the standpoint of Japanese Immigration. It is our purpose this week to  deal With the much talked of "HINDU" problem. We must once again call attention to,the  efforts, of many sympathizers of the Hindus, to rouse support for them on sentimental and religious  grounds. Again we, assert that most of these so-called supporters are ignorant of actual conditions and have been carried away by the supposedly unjust treatment accorded to the Hindu.  There recently journeyed to Ottawa, to present the case of the Hindu, three Sihks, (Sundar  Singh. Tiga Singh, Rajah Singh) and a white man named Hall, who was totally ignorant of the  actual facts of the case, but who imagined it was his Christian duty to,support the Hindu. That  this man Hall was not clear, as to his position, was evidenced by his objection to the presence of  the B. C members on the occasion of the presentation of the Hindu's case before the Minister of  the Interior, and also from the fact that his only argument was based on his views as a Missionary. We have nothing to say derogatory of the Missionary Movement, but hold that this question has a much greater claim on our attention from an economic and national standpoint, than  from a missionary point of view. - ���������  Permit us first to dispose of some of the argiiijients put. forward by this man Hall, and by  others who hold similar views, when urging that the wives of the Hindus be admitte^;k;Theu?  main contention is, that it is immoral to expect men to live apart from their women, and if we  insist upon this Unnatural condition, it will be conducive to criminal practices on the part of  the Hindu. Very great stress is placed upon this argument, and it is amazing to what extent it is  being advanced by those who claim to be the special custodians of public morals and by church  people. Have these special pleaders for the Hindu, ever stopped to consider the inevitable, and  logical conclusion to which their argument must lead? Do they not realize that to accept their  contention, is to admit the whole principle of "restricted districts," and that chastity is an impossible virtue? These same moralists would raise a tremendous howl if it were proposed to introduce a system of restricted districts, (and in thei* objection we Would heartily agree), but they  accept on behalf of the Hindu an argument which they have been fighting, in season and out of  season, for years, when applied to white men. Then again, according to the solemn declaration of  Tega Singh, only one-half of the Hindus now in British Columbia have wives. What do .these moral  advocates propose for the balance, about 2,500 in numbejr? Surely to be consistent with this disgusting argument presented by this fellow Hall, and foolishly caught up by hundreds of churches  throughout Ontario and the West, it will be necessary to make some provision for this large  number of unmarried Hindus, or admit that there is still existing in our midst "a grave menace  to public morals," or to quote Hall further, "would you ask these men to live a life of enforced <������  chastity?'* We answer, unhesitatingly, yes, and utterly repudiate this low, base argument, which *  is a libel on the decent manhood of Canada.' ;      "      '%      -  We apologize to the reader for this discussion but it was made necessary by the wholesale _  presentation of this argument by the very people, including large numbers of churches, who up- <  on reflection, cannot possibly accept it, but who have.been hoodwinked by such men as this Hall \  and other utterly irresponsible people, whose foolish' fanaticism has entirely blinded their judg  ���������ment,-;- r \  As a matter of fact, this question of bringing in their wives never entered .into the minds of !  the Hindus until very recently, and then only as a means to rouse sentimental support from a :  certain type of moral busbody, and how well the wily Hindu succeeded is evidenced by the hubbub  which has resulted.  The object the Hindu has in view is, first, to secure the right of access to Canada, then to  make this the ground for claim, us British subjects**** ifree right of tr������\ el jit settlement in all  parts of the Empire, then to claim full right of franchise* aud to-oatend this to "the' right 'to sit  in all elective bodies, or to hold office in any public capacity. This; in brief, if their propaganda  as stated to the writer by this very fellow, Dr. Sundar Singh. -  Now let us for a moment examine the persounei of this delegation which went to Ottawa.  There is the so-called Dr. Sundar Singh, who is being quoted all over the East, and who represents himself as a wealthy philanthropist, who is spending his time and money to elevate his poor,  suffering fellow countrymen in Canada. He has succeeded in working the people of Ontario to  a pitch of excitement worthy of a much better cause and a more honest man. This Sunda Singh  is one of the cleverest rascals in Canada. Until very recently he was the leader of a clique of the  Hindu colony in B. C. who were opposed to the rule of Tega Singh, with whom he is now conspiring in order to promote the program outlined above. He is in Canada illegally, by evading  the Immigration Laws, and, should be deported. He is a professional agitator and trouble monger, and, instead of being a philanthropist, is an unscrupulous exploiter of his more ignorant fellow-  countrymen, living off his wits. He has traveled widely and has had an extensive experience,  and bandies business matters for other Hindus at a handsome profit to himself. He"is altogether  undesirable and unreliable, and a menace to the community.  Tega Singh is the leader of the Hindus of the Pacific Coast; he is a student and a scholar,  but, like his old enemy and compatriot, Sunda Singh, he also lives by his wits, and by what he  can secure from his fellows. He is aulever dreamer, but a fearfully poor business man. His  word, like that of all Orientals, is absolutely unreliable. He is reported to be deeply interested  in the modern sedition movement of India. Asa scholar, he is interesting, but as a citizen, guiding the destiny of his fellows, he is extremely dangerous.  Rajah Singh, the last of the trio, is the only trustworthy one of the three, but he is pretty  much controlled by the others, so is not of serious consequence.  As stated, up to recently, Tega and Sunda Singh were bitter enemies and constantly conspiring one against the other, and it would be interesting to know just what the terms are of this  unholy alliance.  So much for the men, and, by the way, the writer has an intimate acquaintance with them  and knows whereof he speaks. Now let us examine the claims of the Hindus and submit some  reasons why, in our opinion, they should not be granted.  First, they ask that the wives and families of those now in the country be admitted, which,  according to their own statements, would number about 2,500 to.3.000 families. Taking five as  an average family, and this is small, it would mean that there would be an immediate increase of  the Hindu colony of about 12,000 to 15,000 souls. Or. in other words, we would ha\e a colony of  about 20,000 Hindus, which would rapidly grow by natural increase.  They claim that Canada requires settlers and that the Hindus are farmers. It is true, we  do want settlers, but these men will not pioneer, they congregate around great cities and are employed at jobs' for which there is a very ample supply of labor, such work as piling lumber at  the saw mills, tending machines of various sorts, working as section men on the railways, clearing city lots, excavation work, stable and garden men, etc., etc. They work much cheaper than  a white man could afford to. They herd together in small houses in the poorer districts of the  cities and thus Hve very cheaply. They do, to a very small extent, work in the country contiguous  to the cities, but they do not, nor will they go into undeveloped districts to settle new country.  So from a settler's standpoint they have no claims.  Another ground upon which they demand right of entry is, that they are British Subjects.  This claim seems to captivate the mind of many who are supporting their requests. They are British subjects, so is the North American Indian, theBushman of Australia, the Hotentot and Kafir of  South Africa, the Natives of New Guinea, the Aborigines of New Zealand, and we might add, the  native tribes of Egypt. Would anyone suggest that we should open Canada or any other part of  the Empire to an unrestricted migration of any of these people who should take a notion to travel ?  Because a man is a British subject, is^that a reason why he should have freedom to impose his  presence in any place which may strike his fancy? Have we the right to compel South Africa,  or India, or New Zealand to accept immigrants from Canada, irrespective of their qualifications?  Do we not refuse large numbers of British born immigrants, because in our opinion they are not  desirable? And who dares to interfere in our inalienable right to state the qualification of our  immigrants? Therefore, on the ground that we in Canada, in common with all other self governing  Dominions, have the right to say who shall and who shall not settle here, we contend that if we  ehoose to say "No" to the Hindu, we are free to do so. and are not compelled to answer to any  higher authority for our position than that of our own Parliament. But, further, our position, or  contention is strengthened by this fact, that the Hindu is of a different race, standard of morals and  ethical ideas, mental conceptions, traditions, history, culture, customs, physical attainments and  capabilities, home and social life, education, and in fact, in every way is different from us. We  cannot and will not assimilate. It would mean a contest between the Oriental and the Occidental,  and, while in Canada the Occidental at present predominates, we are not inclined to invite a contest between three hundred and fifty millions of Orientals and seven millions of Occidentals. We  contend that the destiny of Canada is best left in the hands of the Anglo Saxon race, and are "unalterably and irrevocably" opposed to any move, which threatens in the slightest degree, this position.

Here is what the "^Catholic Times" says about  Home Rule: "As a MATTER of Fact, the Home  Rule Question is A RELIGIOUS QUESTION. WB  HAVE SAID THIS MANY TIMES, and WE REPEAT IT NOW." True for the Catholic Timet!  The Priest, in charge, has the fearlessness to apeak  out the fact. He says what Redmond, all Home  Rule Irishmen, and their clever masters from tbe  Pope down say.  The Irish leaders, for forty years, have so said,  to my personal knowledge. But the traitorous  Gibeonites will fail. Israel is Britain, and the  enemies of Israel must ever fail. "God's Battle-  axe" will win out. >  'Wnat Is Coming to Casey?'  Let me answer from Scripture, even though  some of our PEACE-at-ANY-PRICE Protestants  may not like this hard truth, from their own OLD  BOOK. Rev. Chapter 17���������"I will show unto-you  the Judgment of the great whore that sitteth  upon many waters."  "And I saw a woman, sit upon a scarlet colored beast, full of names of blasphemy, having  seven heads and ten horns."  "And upon her forehead was a name written,  MYSTERY. BABYLON. THE GREAT MOTHER  OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE  EARTH."  "And I saw the Woman drunken with the blood  of the saints, and with the blood of the MARTYRS OF JESUS."  Verse 9���������"The SEVEN HEADS ARE SEVEN  MOUNTAINS";���������in Rome.  "These shall make war with the LAMB; and  the LAMB shall overcome them."  Look at the terrible future of this murderous,  whorish, persecutor of the followers of the Lord  Jesus Christ rather than followers of a fraudulent  priest, claiming to be god. Chapter IS���������"Babylon the Great is fallen, is fallen, and is become  the habitation of devils, and the hold of every  foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird." "Come out of her, my people, that ye  be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive  not of her plagues."  "And a mighty angel took up a stone, like a  great millstone, aud cast it into the sea, saying,  THUS WITH VIOLENCE. SHALL THAT GREAT  BABYLON BE THROWN DOWN. AND SHALL  BE FOUND NO MORE AT ALL."  All Christian Commentators and Sensible Bible  Students know right well there is only one great  whorish. persecutor of Christians, with her seat  on SEVEN HILLS (For Ages) that answers to  the description of this Pagan Babylon.

Last week I spoke of the .thrift jif  the French housewife and her careful  marketing ways, as being the mainstay of the common people in France,  where the .cost of living tells the same  story of ^mounting up; and ever up.  France, too, it must be remembered,  is the home of the new "intensive cultivation" that has become so popular  ���������and Is giving such good results In  Britain at present. There, at least,  one can imagine that there are .no  Swift-Armour-.Morris combines to raise  the price of flesh foods. How, then,  one may ask. does this theory of evil  combine influence hold in keeping up  French prices?  The answer is. the same causes are  at work under another name���������MONOPOLY.  That is the answer.  Strangest of all, it is here the PEOPLE'S OWN MONOPOLY���������that is to  say, the Government of France���������of  LIBERTY, EQUALITY, FRATERNITY who tax the people to such extent  that even the commonest necessaries  of life, such as matches, are heavily  taxed, whilst tobacco is absurdly high,  and wretchedly bad at that  It Is, perhaps, not to be wondered  at when one remembers that every  seventh person in FRANCE IS OFFICIAL.  Again the priesthood exact immense  doles from the masses���������ironical as It  reads���������for MASSES���������and one kind of  priesthood spoliation and another reduces poor Johnny Crapaud to a life of  hard toil, low wages and high cost, of  living.  We are told by the scientist that  higher wages have been the chief  cause of Increasing the cost of living.  If that Is so, how comes it that In  France, where wages are relatively the  lowest ln modern industrial Europe,  that the cost of living 'has risen so  disproportionately?  Here, again, as ln Germany, the railways have had to make huge cuts In  cost of transportation, the Paris milk  and. butter coming so far South as  Charantes���������yet. In spite of this ever  widening circle of supply, prices  mount up, ever upwards.  Again I turn to France to disprove  I another   nostrum   that  Communistic  faddists are ever urging as a true rem  edy of an  ideal  state���������NATIONALIZATION OF THE RAILWAYS!  Well, the French Government has  almost, nationalized one huge railway  system out of existence. Le Chemin  fl' fer de L'Ouest, or Western of France  Railway-���������from Paris to Havre���������one of  France's busiest seaports, has now  been a Government line for four or five  years, with the result that the cost of  Tunning it, and therefore, the cost of  transportation over it, has increased  neairiy 50 per cent., whilst dissatisfaction in nearly all grades is rampant,  Turning over these and kindred  facts, we see that the mere fact of  widening the area of supplies, i.e., increasing the productive area, the lowering of productive charges���������as v the  state of affairs in both Germany and  France shows���������does NOT of itself  LOWER THE COST OF LIVING.  SOMETHING MORE IS NEEDED.  Combination, as I Bald at the outset, of the masses against the packer  combines. Is one great step, and to  REDUCE THE COST OF DISTRIBUTION is another VITALLY important  one.  This is where you want to get busy.  O! COUNCIL OF TEN! Now, you  bright young merchants and middle  men���������whom I have spoken of before  as the proper ones to take a hand in  organizing the NEW FOOD LEAGUE  ���������for your own and your neighbor's  benefit, come out Into the open and  show your mettle.  You wage-earners, and family food-  finders, look into this question and  join in a movement that has Its ultimate aim for your good. Consider the  fact that a fall in price of commodities  does not mean a fall ln wages���������quite  the opposite. Here it points to an increase of utility, the exploitation of  new fields of proc'u; ' "id the Improvement of the :. : OF DISTRIBUTION.  The last resort of economic PROGRESS in production and exchange,  consists mostly In the .desirability of  MEANS to the ENDS to be attained���������  shortly, the greatest good to the greatest number, which must be the subject  of our next article.  PATHFINDER.  Building Notes  Alderman Baxter, chairman of the  Bridges and Railways Committee,  seems to be the right   man in the  right .pljjce, and is to be highly commended for the stand he has taken up  that Vancouver engineers can as well,  if not better, design Vancouver's  bridges and viaducts than any outside  firm who open an office here, appoint  resident engineers and prepare "ethical studies"���������whatever they may  mean���������free of cost.  I have always noted that these  "free studies" lead to a handsome, if  not excessive, commission���������which is  the only handsome feature of the resulting work. Our city is disfigured by  structures of, as one of the aldermen  put It, "bird-cage" erections, and if a  prize were ever to be awarded for the  champion nglifler of Vancouver, Wad-  dell & Harrington, if they did not secure first place, would be certain of a  special prize ln this direction.  In any event, even If this firm were  a strictly local concern, which they  cannot possibly be. their head offices  being in the States���������I say even if they  were pioneers of Vancouver, and  spent their earnings here, every cent  and. every dollar of it���������it would be still  monstrously unfair to hand them out  every bridge job the city has.  They have had more than their fair  share already, and it is high time the  Vancouver engineers, looked closer into  this question and urged upon the city  a free and open competition to Vancouver engineering firms. Proper conditions could be drawn up, and either  one assessor or a committee appointed  to make an award���������and one of the  conditions, if not the first, must be  that the competitor is a British subject who has resided here at least  twelve months. .A deputation should  go to the City Hall at once.  It is certain that in Alderman Baxter such a deputation would get a sympathizer who would carry his committee on ��������� " fair and popular point.

It might thus become possessed  of some lines of beauty which would  start the "City Beautiful" campaign  oh the right road.

In the first place, according to the man who has given  Epictetus renewed fame, children in  the schools are made to study too  hard; an attempt is made to teach a  little of everything, and as a result  nothing, is learned thoroughly. Another count in his indictment against  the modern school 'system Is that  when the children emerge from it they  are unprepared and unwilling to do-  useful work. The boys refuse to learn  trades and the girls turn up their  noses at housework.    "We are now  a Ngtfrawter mark *t $298.  Hans at Accountants.

No More Free Catsup.  One of the most curious developments of the Increased, cost of living  is now making itself felt here in the  loud cry of protest which has been  raised by patrons of quick lunch counters over the abolishment of the free  catsup bottle.  It is even reported that  free catsup may become s political  slogan through the   organization   ot  Montreal's army of hasty eaters who  have come to look upon the condiment  as one of their Inalienable rights of  which the trusts are now accused of  depriving them.   For many years the  free catsup bottle has been an important feature of the lunch counters at  which an army of workers are accustomed to snatch their noonday repast  at a cost of from five to fifteen cents,  and the amount which has daily been  consumed without charge would   be  sufficient to float a good-sized ship.  Now, however, the edict has gone forth  that because of the increased cost of  food there will be no more free catsup  served with low-priced meals.  Persons consuming only a five-cent  lunch will, if they want catsup, be  compelled to pay five cents for it.  Consumers of meals costing ten or fifteen cents will receive free a half portion���������that is, one small dab���������while  the gourmand of the quick lunch counter who consumes a twenty-five cent  meal will receive free of charge a full  portion���������so-called���������consisting of two  dabs. Probably no other curtailment  of the midday meals, and there have  been many of them during the last  year, has met with such general denunciation, and already talk has been  heard here of the establishment of a  political body pledged to give its vote  only to such candidates as shall work  for the restoration of the free catsup  bottle as the first step toward the reduction of the price of food.  Bell Hops Getting Rich.  That the week from Christmas to  New Years brought a golden harvest  to hotel employes In this city in the  shape of tips and presents is indicated  by the records of the garnered spoils  which are now more or less complete.  So far the record for bell .boys is held  by an uptown hotel where the average  amount collected during six days by  each of the uniformed youngsters is  reported as being ?48. While lower  figures prevailed at other hotels, it is  safe to assume that $25 would not be  far from the bell boy average for the  first-class hotels. Nobody is willing  to venture an estimate on the extent  to which Christmas enriched the all-  powerful clean of head waiters, although it is known to be very large  Generally speaking, the room clerks  fared extremely well. An actual list  of the gifts received by a popular  clerk in a popular hotel included six  suits of silk underwear, eight boxes  cigars, 200 cigarettes, three fine neckties, $40 in cash, one scarf pin, five  pounds candy, two pocketbooks, six  pairs silk sQcks, one hat, one tie clasp,  one pair cuff links, one jar preserved  figs. But although this Christmas was  a good one for hotel employes, ft Is of  no modern growth. Twenty years ago,  according to a manager who was then  an elevator boy on the only car at the  old Windsor Hotel, his average gifts  in cash approximated $200. During a  period of four years the smallest holiday contributions he received amounted to $146, while the banner week set the receipts of aged and Incompetent  ...        -jiC       ,      r   ,-���������  assooat to 5,000 dosen weekly, it  will be seen that the chances of the  ordinary citizen coming into contact  with them are too great for comfort.

(From Our Own Correspondent)  MONTREAL, Jan. 24.���������A wide open  city, rivalling the palmiest daya of  Paris and other continental cities is  the chief plank of Montreal's eleventh-  hour candidate for mayor, Dr. Gustavo  Tasse. Dr. Tasae entered the. Held  when it was learned that Alderman  U. H. Dandurand bad dropped out of  the race owing to the fact that he had  not obtained the support of the Good  Citizens' Association. His programme  la as sweeping in reforms and changes  in the social conditions as ever were  those of any candidate offering himself to the citizens, but along rather  bizarre .and (candidly open lines.  The new candidate declares that his  candidature is more in the nature of  a referendum than a mayoralty contest. "I want the citizens to have a  chance to vote secretly," he said, "on  questions which have been choked  through hypocrisy, money, or other influences."  "My programme is a radical one,"  the candidate continues; "to awaken  Montreal from its lethargy and change  our mode of administration from top  to bottom."  Among the planks of Dr. Tasse's  programme are:  1. The total abolition of aldermen, to  be replaced by controllers.  2. The abolition of present school  commissions, to be replaced by those  elected by the*people, "without interference from the municipalities, authorities of of the clergy.''  3. No interference from the Provincial government in Montreal affairs.  4. Abolition of property qualifications.  5. Repeal of the new paving law.  6. Compulsory education and uniformity of school books.  7. Acceptance of Andrew Carnegie's  offer of a public library, "without clerical interference of any kind."  8. The licensing of disorderly houses  and quarters set apart for them, such  houses to be placed under the supervision of the sanitary board and police  authorities.  9. Theatres of all kinds open on Sunday.  10. Stores open on Sunday till 12  o'clock so that the working man who  has no wine cellar may get what he  wants the same as his rich neighbor.  11. Absolute imposition of taxes en  churches, presbyteries, convents, colleges, hospitals, etc., with the understanding that the authorities shall give  such grants as the institutions merit.  "Rots" and "Spots."  The vigorous campaign waged in this  city last year against the use of stale  eggs by bakers, confectioners and others who are able to disguise them in  their manufactured product apparently will have to be fought over again.  The charge is made that the traffic in  "rotB" and "spots/' as they are known  to the trade, is going on as extensively  as ever. Presumably this information  is accurate, for it comes from the  dealers in bad eggs themselves. Their  business consists in supplying these  tainted products of the poultry yard  in liquid or powder form to tanneries  for use in the process of making  leather, and they complain that it is  impossible for them to secure spoiled  eggs for this purpose because they are  going into regular trade channels.

(Continued from page 1)  be Almost a necessary part of their duties in these  days.  ��������� In relation to the responsibilities attaching to  the positions of Bank tellers and clerks, the rato  of pay is miserably inadequate. It ranks, I think,  one below a city scavengers pay.  A Canadian-American, or American-Canadian,'-  or an American-Canadian-American has, been  writing to the papers complaining of the "British-'  born" cry being used, too extensively in this city,  and he cites the very different treatment handed  out on the "other side of the line" to all Canadians, and intimated that he was ashamed of his  fellow countrymen. He need not be. No one is  foolish enough to pick holes in the well-behaved,  upright American citizen who makes his home  among us. Though at times we do get rather  tired of having Old Glory flaunted inrour faces'  in season and out������  I was in New York during the Hudsou-Pul-  ton.'celebrations and I looked amicl the^crowded  decorations in vain for a sight of the Union Jack  of Old England. Failing to find it, Iasked my  Yankee companion what they had done with the  old ilag that they were ashamed to show it to  their visitors. He rather shamefacedly apologized  for its absence. When upon enquiring the cause  he informed me they could not buy any Union  Jacks in New York, no one stocked them.  The whole subject, however, of the American invasion into Vancouver is so important that  I will take leave to deal with it in a separate  article.  PENDRAGON.  WHO IS CASEY? WHAT IS CASEY? WHERE  IS CASEY?  .(Continued from page 1)  is  the   Casey  crowd  with  their  many   aliases.  Hence DOWN goes Casey.  "Thus saith the Lord God, Because thine heart  is lifted up, and thou hast said, I am God, I SIT  IN THE SEAT OF GOD (The Pope Claims to be  God'8 Infallible Vicar on Earth), in the midst of  the seas: Yet thou art but a man, and NOT God,  though thou set thine heart as the heart of God."  "Thou shalt die the deaths of the uncircum-  eised." "AND THERE SHALL BE NO MORE  A PRICKING BRIER, UNTO THE HOUSE OF  ISRAEL." .     x  The lying Gibeonites were always to be servants to Israel, and also a "thorn in their sides."  N������$ut when the persecuting Babylonian whore that  long sat on Seven Hills (only one now) is brought  down to the pit, and dies the "death of the un-  eircumeised," then the Gibeonites will disappear  from the earth, or becoming the willing, loyal  and obedient servants of Britain, to-wit: Israel.  In any event, down must go the pagan,  heathen, persecuting, traitorous, scarlet-clad  woman, and with her down goes Casey and all  his noisy, jaw-bone windjammers. Yes, down  goes Casey, bearing what name he may.  I have spoken plainly, and must close. But  in so doing, I wish to say a word to another class.  I have said, all Roamn Catholics who are loyal  and obedient to the Pope are of necessity traitors  to their country when a clash comes between the  Pope and the country. This is true, as all men  know. But there are other Roman Catholics.  And of these I now speak. They are loyal to the  Pope only so long as he keeps his interfering  hands out of the affairs of the state. As soon  as he interferes and tries to force this class of his  followers to obedience, they draw the line and  tell him to mind his own business. These Roman  Catholics cannot, and do not get angry when I  tell the others they are traitors.  E. ODLUM.  Picture Palace  Oriental Immigration  (Continued from Page 1)  This we assert in spite of a statement made by an unnamed correspondent to the Vancouver Province, that  "that it was unstatesmanlike."  Someone will ask "What are you going to do with' this three hundred and  fifty millions of India?" Are they not  now over-crowded?'' We answer that  there is ample room in India. The  greater portion of the population of  India live in the large cities, especially  those cities on the coast line. There  is a vast hinterland or hill country, ln  India, which might he developed. Let  these Hindus who prate so' loudly  about their patriotism, go to these  frontier lands and open them up to  civilization. They dare not, they have  not got in their natures the stuff which  makes pioneers. From the standpoint  of climate they are the men who  should do it, hut no, it is left to the  sturdy Anglo-Saxon to pioneer and explore these wild regions.  The Hindu civilization is immeas  urably older than ours: where have  they, as a race, ever been known to  open up a. new territory, or extend  civilization? Never. But they come  creeping into the choicest parts of our  Empire, seeking to pluck some of the  rich rewards resulting from the labors  ot a hardy race of pioneers who have  opened up the country and made possible a comfortable life.  There is this other reason why we  should oppose Hindu immigration because personally they are undesirable.  We point to one. characteristic of the  Hindu which is quite sufficient to warrant us in refusing him entrance, it  is the inherent conviction in all' of  them that "for cause or reason" they  are justified in lying or deceiving."  They will deny this, but we will appeal to any one who has had an extensive knowledge of them, if it is  not true that.you cannot trust them,  nor believe them when it is in their  interests to deceive.  This fact is clearly demonstrated  by the action of several of our judges,  who refused to try any more Hindu  i.i|.l|iif.l|l.|l.t.l|ii|..|..(i.|i.ii.i..|..|..|lit.i|ii|.i|..|l,|iiin.f ������i|.i|.i|ii|..|.,|i.f.������.|.������.t-i������i"|li"i":-i"i"!"t"i"i"������"T'  GET ...  t  t  %  Best English Prints  All guaranteed, fast colors; regular 15c yd.

The Hindu has in recent years be  come possessed of a iut; ,.i tliat he is  destined to rule the Empire, that his  civilization is so much older than ours,  that if he can once secure recognition  as a British Subject, with full rights  of citizenship throughout the Empire,  he will be weight of numbers be able  to become the predominating influence  in Imperial affairs. We are not prepared to discuss "Home Rule for India," but we are prepared to take this  stand, that we will never consent to  any policy which will make it possible  for the Hindu to become a factor in  Imperial affairs, except to a limited  extent, and that to be confined entirely to India. Consequently, in common  with Australia and New Zealand, we  take the position that as far as Canada is concerned it shall remain white  and our doors shall be closed to the  Hindu, as well as to other Orientals.  One word regarding the contention  that it would not do any injury to  permit a few women to enter. It  would not end there. Knowing the  Oriental faculty for begging as we do,  we are convinced that with his usual  importunity, if you gave him an inch  he would never rest until he had received a mile. If you admit a few, on  what grounds can you refuse the  many? Supposing that not one more  Hindu were admitted, but you allow  the families of those now here to  come, what would be the result? With  a nucleus of 20,000, they would Boon  grow to such numbers as to constitute a permanent menace to tbe country. Then as to the claim, that they  are, many of them, British soldiers,  we have but to draw attention to the  veiled threat of Sundar Singh that if  they were not given free access that  he would cable tndia and would not  answer for the result there. Are we  to be brow-beaten by such loyalty as  that? Again, we would direct the attention of these ultra-royal British soldiers to the vast hinterland of India  and say that "there is a field in which  your patriotism may find plenty of  room for exercise"; we prefer our own  forms of loyalty, which does not seek  personal advantage by veiled threats.  This question of Hindu immigration  vitally affects British Columbia at the  present time, but British Columbia is  forced to be the victim of the ignorance of the balance of the Dominion,  then it will not be many years before  the East will realize what a gigantic  error has been made, and like the  United States, we will have a race  problem that will continue to grow  in complicity and magnitude.  There is only one course to follow,  and that is to stop, ere it is too late,  this objectionable immigration to our  Canadian West.  WILL OPEN  Saturday, Feb, 3  WITH A COMPLETE SHOW.

Beattie, the pioneer and successful real estate auctioneer, has just  closed a contract with the. owner ot  the Sumner place, being Dl 70, comprising 392 lots, which he will put on  the market at an auction sale on February 12, of which full particulars will  appear in the local papers on Satur-  Burnaby line of the B. C. B. it., only  day next;  The property is situated on tbe  five minutes ride from the Martin  property in the Hastings townslte, and  will be cleared in the same way as the  latter.  . This subdivision Is right at the  crossing of the B. C. E. R. and the  Great Northern Railway, "and therefore has a double service into the  rltv. it trnn rich soil and level ground  and is within a stone's throw of Stave  Lake substation, which cost $300,000,  also the proposed steel works.  A very good reason why Mr. Beattie  haa been successful with all his real  real estate sales is that he will only  undertake sales of merit.  When seen by a reporter lie explained that he had refused no less  than eight real estate sales the last  six months for different reasons, such  as inaccessibility and outside towns,  and he positively refuses to have his  name connected with any townsite he  has not seen and personally inspected, and he said he could not understand how anyone would buy lois seven or eight hundred miles from, Vancouver when in nine'cases out of ten  the seller of the lots had never seen  them. Mr. Beattie further said: "Here  are lots I am putting on the market  that are offered for the first time,  within a few minutes' ride from the  center of the city of Vancouver. You  can go and see them any hour of the  day. They are close to the best city  on the North American continent, and  everyone knows it must grow east and  south. You can build on these lots and  work in the city. They are just over  the boundary line from the city and  there is'nothing you can buy today  that is more certain of an advance.  My advice would be: "Put your money  into lots that will be In Greater Vancouver before long and reap the full  benefit yourself."  Watch for display ad and comparative values next issue.  ARE YOU MORTGAGED?  Many farmers in this Western Country labor under a serious disadvantage  of having to pay heavy rates ���������of interest on mortgages owing to the lack of  sufficient capital to start with. Interest  from 8 to 12 per cent- is too high. The  Family Herald and Weekly Star baa  taken up tbe fight for the western farmers in earnest and is urging the  government to establish a loan system  to assist them.  The Family Herald and Weekly  Star wants the Government to borrow  large sums in England at a low rate  and guarantee principal and interest  and loan the money, under proper supervision to farmers at a reasonable  rate. Never did a paper take up a  more, worthy cause, and tbe Family  Herald and Weekly Star deserves the  credit of every Westerner. The articles  appearing in The Family Herald and  Weekly Star are well worth reading.  The paper costs only one dollar per  year and is the best value in tbe newspaper world.

Cleveland & Cameron, waterworks engineers, are of the opinion  that all parts of Burnaby will be supplied with water by May 15. Six-inch  pipes have been substituted for the  four-inch pipes on the Douglas and  Paterson roads. The steel water tower  at Paterson is nearing completion, and  others will be commenced as toon as  possible. Specifications and a call for  tenders for the supply of pipe to be  laid under the 1912 by-law have been  authorized. When this system is completed it will be sufficient to supply  75,000 people with 50 gallons daily.

OWEN  2337 Main Street - Phone Fairmont 447 <j  ^t)*******t*%***t*i*t***i*********i*******t***i***t***  Mr. Creer is to be congratulated on  Ibis appointment as resident sewage  engineer in Vancouver, bet us hope  what Plymouth loses this city will  gain. Tbe main drainage of Plymouth  waa a stupendous undertaking, and  during its construction many mistakes were made and much burning up  of legal talent was required before all  errors of omission and commission  were corrected. We believe the town  clerk even donned a diving dress and  descended to the bottom of the Sound  so as to be in a position to give first*  hand evidence at the long legal fight  that marked this work.  The late Mr. James Mansergh's  plans were severely criticised in many  directions, and it was an open secret  that the plans of another British expert were largely adopted. At all  events Mr. Baldwin Latham, M.I.C.B.,  used to declare that he showed Plymouth the way and Mansergh was  given the job. Every good man learns  by past errors, therefore we have good  ground for hope that Vancouver will  escape all the errors that Plymouth  made. It will do no harm, however,  to warn the Drainage Commission that  "there's a chiel amang them' takin'  notes, an' faith, he'll print 'em" when-  ver the city's interests demand fair  criticism.  The building season is beginning to  show signs of healthy activity. It is,  therefore, the more to be regretted  that any foolish talk���������even of a strike  ���������should be indulged in in fire-brand  labor circleB at the present time. Such  men are no true friends of labor, as  last year's experience amply proved.  Capitalists will not advance a cent  when there-is the slightest probability  Much interest is being awakened respecting the coming convention, and  a large delegation from all over the  Province is expected. The programme  will show the importance of the subjects to he discussed and some of the  prominent speakers who will take  part. The meetings will be held in  tbe auditorium of the Central Mission,  Abbott street, Vancouver, to which all  persons interested'in temperance, moral and social reforms are most cordially invited- Notices have been sent  to all pastors for their churches, and  an invitation is here given to the citizens of the Province to be present and  make this a banner convention for  temperance.
