D.)  The Gk>od Roads convention at Victoria, called  at the instance of that astute Minister the Hon.  Thos., Taylor, has been ah unqualified succesa  from its inception.  Every, meefcrng was splendidly  attended and some rattling good addresses on the  subject were delivered. > file witty speech of |lr.  Sutton, on old timer at the game, evoked rounds  _>4 of. applause-^-and that, in spite of the fact that  many of his allusions -were not complimentary to  c/Nkhe modern road surveyor or engineer���������there was  l!������������������',*} good deal in Mr. Sutton's remarks regarding the  path-finding proclivities of good wbo48men>wl*om  .he said would often beat the road engineer hollow  ly in^ his senaing the ,ljW?' 9<;'^ila^,^wir^^wliijA,  *' >heI'-traveHed; noiife possessed a better knowledge  of the topography than a good woodsman, or knew  better hbwto. pick )0$:& grade, avoiding thjebills;  equally as well aaf^  through therbrusbi^^r^ button remarked that\  he had seen engineers lay out roads of such fearful straightness that johe could nearly lose one:  /;8eKjbn':th^'-a'f^r^ I;.';'������������������    - ���������'^v^^^i'  The making of good roads is almost if not more  important than railways in openuig up districts  , to the settler, but tHe sums allocated to their making in he past have been wofully inadequate; v  It is somewhat amusing howeved, to read in  the "World/' one of those illuminating paragraphs that seem a specialty of that iournal������ as  made and put up by the Ajnerican press agency  who hands them the trash���������to the effect that  copying America, England, was now joining in.  tbe movement for good roads alsb;; '^<?  Shades of Telford McAdam and Wade, not to  iaiention Julius Agrippa, Diocletious, and othe r  old timers copying an American movement for  good roads by Britain���������the home of good roads,  is rather too rich a joke to pass without comment.  If all roads in these prosiac d������y������,no longer lead  toRome���������they at least tend towards the seat of  ; Gbvernment and Victoria haa been fairly be������eig6d  these past few days with deputations upon deputation.

MacQowan, in tbe speaker's  chair���������and ������n admirable speaker he made top-rat tbe evening sitting. "Are yon ready: for th>  question V'~ WQfcWl- in. tw������e House(%f Coinmous  style, but so far as f could judge, the Opposition  were by no means ready for tbe question at any  ^me.' ���������������������������_'���������   ;,  What ������ poor, spiritless figure they did cut to  be sure; tbe only real debater so far as I could  judge, amongst tbem, was Parker Williams, he  did make some attempt to handle the questions  in a logical manner and I thought the matter of  bis addresses were good also. ;.  But what a poor speaker Hawthornthwaite is!  Brewster is very little better, he reminded me of  a vocal Choctaw, after the scalp of the Clovern-  ment, especially the lion, tbe Premier, at any cost,  bis talk was nothing but jeers and jibes, and the  way be- kept vaccously gruming across tbe house  was far from dignified or convincing of bis political acumen. And as for Hawthornthwaite he seemed a kind of vocal human geyser, with the cork  out of the top���������words; worda, nothing but words,  poured forth in an endless torrent of speech, which  only tbe trained ear for the Press Gallery could  make top or tail of. <t opine he owes much to that  same press gallery before: bis outpourings reach  the public.  Aa for the Hon. tbe Premier, he lay low and  kept on saying nunlnV the People's Richard is evidently well used to the kind of aimless torrent  of speech that nowes from that quarter of the  House. I kept sharp watch and can testify that  neither he or Speaker MacGowan yawned once,  which I considered quite an achievement in facial  control, any way it was most instructiye to watch.  The consecration of the new Bishop eleet must  have been an impressive ceremony, let us hope he  will put new vigor and faith into all the Churches  of his diocese, and not forget also the highways  and byways of the province*  1PICWUMS BY TEAHOgS B.

T ) '  Qf course the (liberals are right and wise in  organizing for the future. It would be a calamity  to this or any other province if the Opposition  would, go into chaos and helplessness.^ The food  Grits are not so constituted, and so we are sure  to hear from them in this election, even if they  contest only a very few Beats, as is likely _to be  the case this time.  At a following election there*will, perhaps, be  beter chances offering than at present- Then, if-  they show their old-time spirit* they'.'wljt be on  hand with men good and true, for there are such  to be found in their ranks,, though at present we  are unable to spot many of them. ~ $W ffesj vn  around somewheTt near to our gaze. Success to  them so long as they are in opposition, perhaps  we shall hear from the tabor Unions again; but  instead of running a full tickbt, they, would do  well to go on the retail line, for the wholesale  course is both costly and weakening. Should they  hope for a chance of success they must select  such men as are hot extremists. Vancouver electors do not lose their heads at an election, and  our electorate holds the city's interests higher  than the interests of any class; for class legislation is the worst and most dangerous possible  for any people.  The instincts of British Columbia in general  arc patriotic and businesslike.    Hence the Mc  Bride Government is safe for a long time yet.  Tht Economic Oonditioni.  Perhaps it is timely to say a few words, as a  starter, on the Economic Conditions in general,  and later on make more detailed reference to %  few phases of this absolutely important subject.  No thinking, observing, honest man, with fair  intelligence, would or could fail to perceive that  our present system of political and financial economy needs some radical improvements. Perhaps  I may say that, roughly speaking, there are three  classes to which I may refer. There are the;  powerful interests and influential men who are  well satisfied with the existing state of things..  These men and interests do not desire any serious  change, which, in any case, should come by Bteady  and fairly slow degrees.  Then there are the really honest, industrious  working classes who see and. feel the biting need  more intensely than most others can know. These  workers are in a constant state of fear lest their  work may slip from them, or lest their health may  give out, or lest those giving them work may fail  to pay. In feet, these men, and women, too, are.  on tenter-hooks much of the time as to their future. Advancing old age is a nightmare to them  and their families. Their lot is only moderately  comfortable in spite of all the advantages of our  so-called higher civilization.     -  Then thore is the great middle, consuming class.  This is a body of men. women and children much  larger than the other two combined, and it is too  (Continued en Page 4) \i-  THE WESTERN CALL.  /  K  ********** i������i������i are i ������< ****** *********** **\****** ret * v**  tv  Tools  We have the most complete stock of Carpenter's Tools  {in Grandview and we sell at OTY PRICES.

The Conservation of Public Health  Congress, which met recently m >1 out-  real  under royal  patronage,  was  a  most remarkable gathering.. Both professional people and laymen 4rom all  over the Dominion met to consider  questions pertaining to th������rpnblic.welfare, to try to discover the most practical means   of   helping   those   who  know not how, or have not the power  to help, themselves.  \And every one.  from His Royal Highness, who open-7  ed the congress at a brilliant reception in the Royal Victoria College, to  the humblest assistant ��������� every  one  worked with a will.   That seemed to  be a feature of the convention.    No  one attended merely to enjoy himself  in the ordinary lazy acceptance of the  term.    Words of suggestion and ad*  -vice were accompanied by proof that  active work  had  led to their  utterance. Statistics covering every aspect  of Public Health, 4rom "Military problems of Sanitation" to "Dust as a  factor in Disease," were placed before  the congress with practical, remedies  for minimizing fatal results."  ; One impressive feature: of the convention was the important part taken  by women in this great movement tov  ward better .living.  Without belittling  the work dpne by all of the men whose  unflagging efforts and energy  made  the convention possible.' it must be  stated that women effeet reforms; women discover needs which men would  not sea, and the women take the initiative���������bringing to public^notice con*  ditions which require1 complete altera*  tionv .Without their'assistance men  wpuld be powerless'to reach tbe root  M the matter.   J5ve*y paper read at  the convention (there may. have been  one or two technical exceptions) consciously' or otherwise; bore out the  truth of this statement.  Women had  raised money for this and that; women had given their services for this  or that; women had taken statistics-  had invaded homes for this purpose,  where men would not have been admitted. In this great campaign against  Immorality and vice, against poverty,  illness and early death, ���������feinsi wholesale deterioration ot ��������� the race, it is  women who need assistance. \'  .His Royal Highness, the Duke M  Connenght, said that the vast inani-  mate resources or Canada���������her for*  ests. her rivers, her fields, her mines  ���������were' of no value without animate  resources to wojk'them. It is woman's  right and privilege to give sturdy sons  and daughters to her land, and in a  country as young -as Canada this can  be; done-^rk must be done! Do your  parti Help ever so little and some  one. else will not require-to do so  -muchi, The mere name���������The Conservation of .public Health, can accomplish nothing 1 ���������  Cold storage, town planning, laboratory worki sanitary engineering and  architecture,, sewerage - and garbage  ���������disposal, and many more papers- bearing upon these subjects were fresent-  ed.

The natural physical teMuree of the Pacific  Coast lend themselves to the abuse  of this great industry, particularly to  poaching, At the present time podch-  lug la carried on to such an extent that  we might.almost aa well have our fish*  ertes Nunderlth������ control of our American Mends in Puget Sound. Between  two and"tijree jkuudredAmerican boats  leave ";puget: ���������'���������^^^������^t������^f;%;n^h  in pur wators, where^ our own^f^  men have- :dntjr,- ;*i* ��������� 'brK^von^T^ls'  could noi be but for the f^ by  our j^licy w^^mlt Ame fisher  men to recifre ahrtter^ to r^rchaso  halt,., -to.: dhM^'^^js^^iji^^^iu^l- '--'tpi do  other things necessary to the life of  the Industry. Were we to enforce the  law aa It should be enforced very few  of these bontt,could fish In our waters  because they would l>e^^  their porta, to carry on their business  successfully. As you know, It is necessary for the fishing boats, especially  those engaged in the halibut industry,  to go into haorbor to put their fish in  shape, owing to the stormy nature of  the JKta. Title great fishing Industry  of the Pacific Coast belongs peculiarly  to the Canadian people, and t believe  our laws should be enforced in auch a  way aa^ to protect the: Interests of our  owhy people In that Industry. Refeiv  WncW'^^;,i^*^y:^|������e^; made to  lOndbtpr^le^  WebAVot^^  :*t^f&:||^^  quate, they neve? had any speed, they  have never been able to catch up to  the average fishing hoat on the coast  Consequently^ m years went' by,' the;.  , American Airmen came to Ignore en?  tlrely ^f-'^wlenos- of these fishery  cruisers, or protectors, as they ������re  Wsely called.   What we require on  the Pacific Coast is at least three fair*  ly large OalMSry cruisers of atype aim-  liar to'thjitj/j^! the^Amertcan fishing  boats, of 100 tons burden, and of a  speed of at leaat fifteen knpts^an hour.  It we had vboata of that type it would  not be ivkjif before the poachers would  find their.business to be so unprofit-.  able that they would leave our fisheries alone.  We ahould also have ata-  Uoned at all the harbors along "the  cc������st where these American boats ice.  wont to come a number of officials who  could advlae the cruisers what boat*  had been illegally In any of these harbors.  It would cost very litUe to have  these officials, and I recommend It to  the Minister of Marine and Flaheriea.  There are mon living at these hatbors  who have other means of support who  would be willing, for fl8 or f 15 a  month,   to   watch   these   American  poachers and give Information concerning them.  This fishery protection  service should be placed under the  control of the Minister ot Marine and  Flaheriea and the fishery superintend-  ent.   I nderstand that at the present  time It to under the Canadian Naval  Department   Without any desire to  reflect too severely on'the honorable  gentlemen opposite who inaugurated  the Canadian navy, I think I apeak the  sentiments of the people ot the Pacific  Coast when i say that the Canadian  navy Is regarded there as a joke,' and  I do not think that department should  administer the fishery protection service.   I think it would be far better administered directly under the Minister  of Marine and Fisheries through-his  superintendents; who understand the  retirements of the business.' I would  _������ | like to Impress on the House the Importance of this question.   We are in  she habit, in the eastern part of Canada, of regarding the resources of. our  country which lie at considerable distances from the centres of population  and ^activity as so remote as to be  worthy of very little attention.   I wish  to tell this House that the fishery Industry on the Pacific Coast is of vital  Importance to athe whole Dominion ot  Canada, and not simply as a source ot  revenue to the.country.   As we have  pointed out, our fisheries in British Columbia produced last year over $10,-  000,000.    To give some Idea of "the  growth of the industry I will give some  figures of the product of the fisheries  of Canada and British Columbia, respectively, at different periods:  British  Canada.

'Just  see the effecu of this Influx on the  life of British Coluwlds. |f we have  not sufficient white labor to ike hold  of this fishing industry, and other lines  of business it Is because the class of  people from whom we should draw  that labor has been kept out of our  country by ihe Immigration laws we  have bad In force the last fifteen years  which permit the immigration of Orientals, Take the fish-curing Industry.  Under proper, conditions that ought to  be carried on by the boys and young  men growing up on the tamlHes of  white fishermen; but as that supply  is todayrlacklhg we are obliged to call  In the assistance of Japanese and other Orientals. The same thing applies  to other Unea. Take the domestic help  problem. You have all no doubt heard  of the scarcity of domestic help on the  Pacific Coast. What Is the reason?  It is because the class of people from  whom we would otherwise .draw, our  domestic help has ben kept out of the  country and we have become utterly  dependent on these Orientals. And  what la to become of our merchant  marine If we allow this condition to  continue? Hitherto we have drawn  the masters of our vessels sailing Into  the port of Vancouver largely from  the families of fishermen In the maritime provinces. It la from that source  that we have obtained the captains,  mates and sailors of vessels In our  merchant marine. But, under our immigration policy, instead of our encouraging the building up of a class of  people from whom we could 'draw our  seamen for our commercial marine we  are encouraging an alien race from  which we can never expect to get the  class of men best fitted to coiamand  and man our vessels, and we shall be  dependent on a class on whom .we  can never rely, and who cannot fall to  be a detriment to our Canadian interests In time of need. Honorable gentlemen opposite have advanced a policy of building up in Canada the nucleus of a Canadian navy? We'have  heard honorable members from Nova  Scotia and New Brunswick tell us that  the fishing industry on the Atlantic  Coast was In a most deplorable condition.  That on the Pacific Coast Is fn a  still worse condition and it Is being  monopolized by aliens. Consequently  we have no white men brought up on  the sea nd competent to man our vessels, and have to depnd on boys taken  from the Interior who never saw the  sea. And, of course you cannot expect "land-lubbers" to make good seamen.

In 1889 the cauners paid for flab on  the Fraser river 2B cenu a fish and  canned salmon sold three tins for a  quarter; or at'leaat two for a quar;  tor. In 1909, ton years later, the fish'  ermen were paid 10 and 12 cents per  fish and canned talmou sold at 20  cento a tin. Sonie people will argue  that tbe canner on the Pacific Coast  cannot afford to pay the fishermen a  price which will Induce white men to  fish. I iimV that i* absolutely false,  and thewefi^flb^ prove  It. To say; thai tbe cauners cannot afford to pay v^blte fishermen I* absolute  twaddle of tiJe most ridiculous Wad ^  We sbookl.have, aa far.as posslbls,  free trade in fishing licenses on the  Pacific Coast I do not think we should  create a monopoly of the fishing business. Take, for Instance, the herring  fishery: Only a certain number of  licenses are Issued at $50 a license,  with the result that these licenses ere  farmed out and sold tor from 81,000 to  81,500. In other word*, you create  a monopoly of exceedingly great value.  I believe tbe Minister ot Marine abould  control the issuing of these license*'  In such a way that the Government  would get the unearned Increment if  there is any. There should be a royalty on the licenses which would bring  the Government a handsome revenue.  If that license is worth $1,500 to a man  on tbe Pacific Coast It la worth $1^00  to the Dominion government. Any  benefit of this kind should accrue to  the state and not to some political  heeler.  Let us take the halibut industry. 1  intimated that halibut was one of  the most profitable classes of fishing  we had, and yet it Is one from which  our fishermen on the Pacific Coast derive the least advantage. - I read from  the Year Book of the British Columbia government, which I think is accurate on these matters.  .It says:  "The halibut industry on the Pacific  Coast had its inception about twenty  years ago, and for many years it languished, as there was but a limited  focal demand and the existing means  of transport did not permit shipment  to the Eastern markets, which, moreover, were then well supplied from the  Atlantic fisheries. But conditions  changed', the centres of population  moved westward^the Atlantic catch  declined, tbe cold storage system and  fast freight service came into use and  Pacific halibut became a leading feature in the fresh, fish markets of the  East On the Pacific Coast thehistory  of'the industry is reversed, for the  production rose from 6,877,640 pounds  in 1S93, to 21,706,000 pounds in 1909,  over twelve times the total  Atlantic  (Continued on Page 6)  v������ ��������� w������ *mrw*4w*^HWt*t������~f*~**~t~*~r ���������/���������*������**��������� .

To me it proved a singularly interesting record of a young architect's  grit and ability in overcoming some  very real obstacles of climate, also a  chaotic interpretation of an English  architect's drawing* of a great work,  international in its way,/that of funding the English hospital at Jerusalem.  Mr. A. Beresford Pite, a Justly celebrated English architect by reason of  the beauty and extent of many very  fine and important buildings designed  by him throughout the world, had  charge of the work at Jerusalem/but  Mr. Beresford Pite's drawings .were  expressed in scales of English feet  and Inches, aa he fully expected the  work to be carried out by an English  firm. ������������������..  The work, however, was entrusted  to an Arabic contractor, who was only  versed in: the French measures of  metres,: centimetres and so on. This  is jUBt where the trouble began. ,  The new hospital being ah important Structure in the Bytantine style,  fcontained".a central dome.carried by  huge piers,  tbe exact    position    of  which our1 Arabic master builder could  by no means set out correctly..  The  work/.:came_ to a sudden stanstlll and  l*j. Beresford Pite was urgently summoned, but the great English architect found U Impossible at that juncture to leave London.  , In despair he appealed to his brother architects in that broad spirit, of  free masonry 'so admirably practised  by British architect* today to find him  a man vfho could go out to Jerusalem  and straighten out the tangle.  .. fAmbngst; others Beresford Pite enquired of Mr. John Belcher, A. R. I,  B. A., the noted Egyptologist.,"Did  Mr Belcher know of an/one thorough-1  iyqiaallfled to proceed to. Palestine  and undertake such an Important oonv  mission?"    Mr. Belcber thought he^  Hid and immediately summoning one  of the brightest men of that galaxy  of talent Belcher bad the name tor  gathering round htm, he sent him over  to i Mr.; Beresford ��������� Pite, tolling bin/ at  the same time his position would still  be open to him on bis return to Eng*  land, whenever that might be. !  Beresford Pite was quick to slse up  his man, and something like the tol-1  lowing con yersation ensued:  "Uo you understand Arabic?" '  -   "Not a word,'but I understand construction"  ''then run nver these plans with  i me," said Pite, and two hour* or so  as ah hospital would speedily.-go ahead  to a glorious success.  The * straightening out process,  however, proved a tough and tedious  affair. At times the tangle seemed  to be hopelesB to.get these'semi-bar-  brians to work closely to the original  plans, one of the main piers being  about 16 feet out of position and others  other "snags" were in evidence.  At last a bright Idea- struck our  traveler. "See here," said he, "as  you fellows only understand metres  and centimetres and so on, I'll redraw  tbe whole of the plans to that scale."  This was joyously welcomed, was put  into effect, and the whole work 1m-  medltely  straightened out.  So pleased was the Arabian builder  and his retinue of over 3<K^ men that  on leaving in about *ix weeks the architect was. presented with a marvelous gold, watch and a long scroll lu  Hebraic which he has never read to  this day. The cavalcade that escorted him off was nearly a mile long, and  that young architect's name was Mr.  Norman A. Iieech, architect of tbe  Vancouver school trustees and president of the B. C. S. A.

One may not, in carrying along year  by year, a complicated and  stretched-out piece-meal programme  of new school provisions for a rapidly  growing city as Vancouver is, be able,  when only half way through, to show  the beet he .1* capable of; but as Mr.  Leech's work begins to take on form  and *hape and the buildings assume  their proper proportion* by adding of  missing wlng*r the raising of roof*  over the tar-gravel flat*, one begins to  realize wha tvery fine structure* abme  of them will be wben all 1* completed.

COMMENTS ON OUKJW5NT TOPICS.    ^  (Continued from pag* 1)  often overlooked in economic broils and fiercely  waged contests. ' '  The true perception of the relationship existing as among these three classes i* the Only possible basis for a wise system of legislatioii suitahle  to the whole community. .Here is the place of  close inspection, by which we may eventually  discover our sound starting point, and from which  we may set out on a fairly safe: journey.  But one thing sure is this; There can never  be a final solution to these problems by purely  legislative and economic changes. The primary,'  the fundamental, the absolutely and universally  necessary.principle that must be present and acknowledged in all our attempts at betterment is  that of a moral change and improvement within  the mind and spirit of each human being making  up any community.  This we cannot escape. Our best judgment so  affirms. Onr ever-present conscience announces  this fact to every man and woman. If we do not  make an attempt to conquer our own natures  and properly relate ourselves and our spirits to  our fellow men, and to the" Great Spirit of the  universe, we are playing false with our own manhood and of this fact we are positively aware all  the time. L-  Here, then, is the <me common rock or ground  on which we may all standi and from which to  make our outward attempts to aid others^. If we  do n������t accept internal, spiritual, dispositioTial aid  and elevaition, we: must ever be unable to help  others.   The one thing primary, ever-present and;���������)  universal in relation to man in all his environ^-  ments of time, space, matter, law,; force,; intellect ���������  and spirit is the conscious1 knowledge of our right  or wrong attitude to the Great Universal Father  and to His children on this round earth.      v^  I go so far as to say that ho man can, or ever  will be able, to wisely aid in solving our .hard-  pressing economic conditions until he rightly relates himself, in mind and spirit, to those around  him, as well as to the Great Cause' o'f all things.  Too many of our people in the humbler walks of  life are trying to solve the problems of. life without rightly relating themselves to the only possible means and AGENT of all necessary solutions. Ihave watched men rowing races in skiffs,  and one thing I noticed: The contestants were  most careful in relating themselves to the boat, to  the oars, to the water and the position, bearing upon the course. These men are wise: They pass  nothing of importance. And in.like manner our  would-be economists of, all classes need to look  around and accommodate themselves to the seen  and unseen environment.

All information dealing .with the  possibilities of Old Country folk finding suitable employment in Canada, Is  and ha* been for some time past  greedily seised upon and read with  absorbing interest; for the simple reason thatvCanada, more than any country in the whole Empire, seems to  posses* a greater magnetic attraction  < y| for the would-be emigrant.  Since leaving very dear parlahlon  ers at Southampton, 1 have learned  much from Hying both in the Interior  of British Columbia and hi thl* city  of marvellous' growth, Vancouver; and.  I cannot conscientiously shut my eye*  to the fact that much of this feverish  desire to get anywhere from Home  land Is both ill-considered and ill  timed, and that while there are many  who In time will make good colonists,  and / satisfactory citizens, there are  hundreds, nay, thousands of wastrel*  and spiritless persona who ought hev  or to have left the Old Country. It la  high time that someone should rales  a voice against this indiscriminate  emigration, for only those who live  among the settlers are competent to  speak from their experience of the  bitter disappointment* arising from  living under entirely new conditions,  and of the dated melancholy that settle* upon the women-folk and lone'  bachelors belonging to the, totally unlit class of .emigrants,. who, unsuccessful at home, think they have only to  settle In Canada to become prosperous and happy.  This is a Jeremiad that is incumbent'  upon me to utter so that those who  read these pages and have Influence  In settling people in the Colonies may  exercise a cautious-, judgment before  helping the irresolute to tty and better their condition. Far be It from me  to deprecate the right sort from coming here, but do pray remember that  those who have been accustomed all  their lives to friendly Intercourse with  neighbors, to have church; {school,  doctor and shops at their very doors,  are not.always the kind of people *ho  can live In solitude; but that town-  people '. should emigrate to town*, -snd  country folk to country, snd not think  that the mere coming to a new country can change their habits and dispositions.  Just now, a couple of visits to the  town of Steveston, in Lulu Island, on  the north arm of the Fraser River,,  has still further convinced me that,  owing to insufficient information on  the subject, the right type of fisherman emigrant has hardly yet penetrated where he ought to be living by  scores and hundreds.  It is excessively humiliating to a  Britisher to learn wherever he goes  in Canada that the undesirable emigrant has in nearly every Province  created a prejudice against white  labor other than Canadian; and that  although it has died out, and is dying  out ln moBt parts of Canada, there Is  still a strong feeling In some places  against employing English labor; and  that drink is here, as in the Old Country, at the bottom of half the trouble,  the other half being caused by the  inability of this unfit class of emigrant*, to understand the necessity for  doing as the Canadian does in his own  country.  On the way to Steveston, after  leaving Vancouver city, we cross an  arm of the sea���������False Creek���������and,  travelling rapidly, pass Kltsilano, Ker-  risdale and Burnaby, . by way of  Shaughnessey Heights, and one Is  struck with amazement at the rapid  growth of these districts, that only a  year or two back were vast stretches  of primeval forest, and which are yet  bordered in all directions by nature's  most abundant arboreal growth*  Leaving Burnaby with it* picturesque  little fresh-water lake, we pass over  the wide and swiftly-flowing Fraser,  and are In a minute transported to a  bit of Old England, for Lulu Island is  the land of pasturage and agriculture,  has no great fir or pine trees and  thick underwood, like that we have  been accustomed to since coming to  Canada, but possesses hedges and  ditches and smiling farm-homesteads  that would seem to constitute it the  ideal land for the Old Country farmer  to come to, and virtually it keeps  Vancouver supplied with dairy produce.  A journey of some ten miles, past  the racecourse, which seems to harbor  exactly similar crowds of seemingly  the same people one sees at racecourses all over the world, and who  constitute a little world to themselves,  brings ub to the far-famed canning  town of Steveston; and the flrat object that confronts us is a little English Church surmounted by a big  wooden cross, while further afield ie  one belonging to the Roman Catholics.  The town itself is dominated in every direction by huge canneries until  one begins to wonder how any salmon  are left to can. As one walks about  one has carefully to avoid treading on  Chinese and Japanese babies and little  children, looking for all the world as  if tjiey had been purchased from  London's   great toy emporiums   and  volve over liquid, solder, kept so byk the  dropped on the sidewalks. One is  more.and more impressed'by the  scarcity in numbers of the white man,  of whom there are not more than  three or four hundred In s population  numbering many thousand* of Asiatic*  and Coaet Indian*.  Further, on walking along the quay;  we note that the boat-builder* are all  Japs, that the fishermen in their exquisitely designed smack*, are all Japs  and on entering a cannery that all the  employes are Chine*e with} a small  sprinkling of Coast Indiana, while not  more than a dosen white men are employed in actual machinery and *uper-  lntendlng work. The first question  that naturally arises 1*: "Where are  the white*? Surely the*e:gr**t canning establishments should be worked  by Old Country and Canadian flalter-  men. What does It mean?'* A working  foreman answerer "We don't want the  white man. He haa been tried ^ and  foUnd wanting. One of the canneries  employed them a short while ago, and  they finished operation* a fortnight  after the other cannerle*."1 To the  query how was that accounted for, 1  was told that when the/ salmon were  not running freely, and only a few  could be caught dally, the white fishermen refused to ������g0 out and ���������pent  those slack day* in the drinking saloons, while the Japanese, who do not  drink, went out dally and brought in  iu|������t what/heyxould catchi and *okspt  the canneries going. Thl* wa* not  pleasant hearing, and from a six years  experience of the hardy and zealous  lives lived by the East Anglican fisher-  folk, 1 felt that the right class of  white fishermen bad not yet penetrated to these part*. Afterwards, in  conversation with others Interested In  these canneries, I was assured that  the buying of salmon froth the Jans  and the employment of Chinese In the  canneries is forced upon the various  canning companies, as the proper type  of white fisheran is not forthcoming!  Just think of it! Millions of dollars  have been paid and are being paid to  Asiatics because the Old Country fisherman has not yet proved himself an  furnaces Just below.   Emerging from  this fiery ordeal* they continue rolling  ��������� j ^      - ���������  on, sprayed by cool water until' they  reach the terminus of the line. .They  are taken,out In great haste otherwise they would soon pile over one  another), and are transported in iron  tray*' to the botleri, hot' previously to  being Immersed, the airhole of eack  can 1* closed with a drop of solder.  Bach tray is then lifted by a small  crane, and Just dipped in the boiling  tank*, and if any tin shqws aq air-:  bubble it Is lifted out. and a drop of  solder close* it. As soon as there 1*  a trolley-load of tins ready, it 1* run  into the first steamer, where the  great iron door being fast closed, the  load remains for halt-an-hour:\' Bach  tin; will now keep tor a week; but they  are harried on to the second row of  ���������teamen, and here they are kept for  a whole hour, and on moving are warranted to keep for any length of time.  They are then packed in rows In the  warehouses, and on being duly label  led are consigned to the States and  the Old Country.   ,   ;  ' And this Is a veracious account,  dear reader, of the process of canning  that very slice of FTaaer River Salmon, which maybe you intend making  a hearty mear of, and which is whole-  some good food, and most carefully  and skillfully prepared and canned .

There la nothing  whatever to prevent the white man  frbm doing the Barnt except���������it is  heart-rending to have to record It���������  his love of drink and his obstinate adherence to the his, own opinion of the  laws that should regulate fishing in a  country to which he Is a stranger.  One manager told me lie was going  to apply to l_������brador for some of the  hardy, industrious fishermen to be induced to emigrate to Liilu Island; for  the companies being composed of men  who have Canada's Interests at heart,  are not biased In favor of Asiatic  labor, but employ it, because white  men are not available.  I would that these facts could be  published throughout the fishing communities of the United Kingdom, with  the distinct understanding that there  is no opening for fishermen without  boats and fishing gear of ther own,  but that there is every opening for  men with sufficient capital to buy their  own smacks and compete with the  Japs, who at present monopolize the  industry. Once the right type of fisher-class get a footing there is no reason why it should not hold Its own  against the Asiatic, but���������with the reservations printed above. The rest of  the year there would be coarse fishing  for other fish than salmon, and poultry  farming and a cow or two might occupy slack times, or the fishermen might  find other temporary work in the city.  And now a brief description ot the  actual canning operations: The complicated machinery being all set In  motion, each salmon Is placed in tbe  clutches of. an Ingenious contrivance  that guillotines its head and tall  (which fall out of sight and are raised  automatically to the loft above to be  converted into salmon oil) and which  then proceeds to slit and clean the  body. After this the fieh are passed to  stands of running water, where each  is further thoroughly cleaned with a  brush. They are then taken to the  slicing machine, where they are placed  on the outside ledges ot a kind of  paddle-wheel, and each fish is forced  through a row of knives which cuts  it into slices. Water again cleanses  those slices, which are carried to the  packing stands, where Chinese and a  few Coast Indians pack one slice into  each can, which contains the necessary amount of salt. The cans are  then packed in trays and taken on  trolleys to a wonderful succession of  clever mechanisms which have a continuous onward movement until the  cans are finished with. First of all,  an automatic machines fixes a lid on  each can. They are then taken  through a small tunnel from which  spirting water thoroughly cleanses the  exterior of each tin. . Then being  jerked into a rolling position, they  fall   into   a   revolving   wheel   which  supremely happy and tha *un was  scorching hot, no doubt It suited thalr  way of living exactly, and a* ruahe*  grow In profusion in all1 directions,  which they cull and from wnlch they  make baskets, they exist in their own  desultory way and do a little fishing  when needs must, and 1 must add,  that the scrupulous cleanliness is enforced In the canneries, every worker  being required to wash frequently before and during the canning operations.  HER ONLY  HOPE.  Canadian Government Anuitits System Not Abolished.  The (Superintendent of (Annuities  has receive^ the following enquiry  from an anxious correspondent who.  probably, had read the,announcement  that the agency staff of the Rranch  had been discontinued.  and property could be f*tiroty ������on������  away with, hot osnorianeo baa eho*n  that careful Investigation af (he oo*>.  dltlon* will point the way to the ret*  edying of many abuses.  That the dagger inherent in coal mining can be  largely eliminated   ia shown   by th*  | low constant death rate* in Belgium  and Great Britain.   Coal mine explosions are much more frequent In Can-  da and the United States that In any  of the European countries.   The following example is exceedingly significant.   In lfc'V) tbe fatality rate in the  Belgian coal mines were as high as  the    present   Canadian    death rate,  while at the present time it averages  the lowest In the world.   This decline  in the death'rate was due to the combined efforts of the mine owners, the  workmen and the Administration of  Mines; to the diffusion of technical,  snd professional knowledge, and to the  administrative organisation for th* *eV  entiftc study of accident*.    - ��������� .1^  Although the death rate in metallf-  erous mines in Canada Is lower than  in the coal mine*. It !��������� muck higher/  than in any of tbe European countries. The death rate in Canada f������r  the period 19001909 wa* 3.88. ��������� , -  With the exception of the kimber-  ley diamond mine* and the Tranevaal,  where native and Chinese labor are  employed, tbe fatality rate, during this  period (1900-1909) was considerably  lower elsewhere than in Canada. It  require* on discussion to emphasise  the importance of an inquiry into the  whole subject of fatal accidents ia  NOTICE  "I wish to ask. Is It s fact that the  Annuities System has been abolished?  If so, I am terribly disappointed, as I  have intended for some time to buy an  Auunity next summer, paying the full  price. 1 never, thought that the Act  could be abolished and have been using the money in other way* until I  was of age to .receive the first payment. I and many other* have  thought that the Annuities was a fine  provision for poor people. Can I still  buy a Oovernment Annuity? And if  not. Is there anything that will take  Its place that can be bought?   I do j the mines of Canada  hope that It Is not true that the An-'   nuitles has been abolished, as It gave  me the ONLY HOPE for my old age.''  We are glad to say that the Annuities System ha*' not been abolished.  In transferring the Branch to the Post-  office Department, nder the administration of the Postmaster General, it  is believed that a wider publicity will  be given to the system, and that both  old and young will more readily learn  of the opportunity Parliament has afforded them of making provision for  old age, the postmasters now becoming active while formerly they were  only passive, agents of the Branch.  The benefits will, of course, be more  apparesj. where payments are begun  at an early age, the accumulation period being longer, and the marvelous  earning power of compound interest at  4 per cent being more strikingly demonstrated; and there is always the  danger if payment is deferred to a  late age that unfortunate investments  or expenditures may be made, and the  necessary amount be not then available. Theer is no time like the present.  Full information in regard to the  various plans on which Annuities may  be purchased may be obtained at tbe  postoffice or on application to the Superintendent of Annuities, Ottawa, to  whom letters on Annuities business go  free of postage.

Stave Lake Power is undeniably cheaper and more reliable than private plant operation. Seensfor particulars  and rates.  whether Hecate Btrait is neutral or  Canadian water. But the Dominion  Oovernment some year ago granted a  privilege to the New England Fish  Company, an American corporation,  which practically admits that Hecate  strait is neutral or open water. They  granted to this company the privilege  ot shipping its fish through Canadian  ports ln bond to the Eastern markets.  The reason the New England Fish  Company wanted that privilege was,  that if they could run into Vancouver  they were fifteen hours nearer the  American market than at 8eattle. This  is a great advantage. It will be realised at once that in the transportation  of fresh fish this is an advantage that  should be reserved to the Canadian  people,, to whom it by right belongs.  It has been claimed by supporters of  the late Oovernment that this concession was distinctly an advantage to  Vancouver. I contend it is not, because the fishing company ha* been  able to control the market to such an  extent that the Canadian fishermen  {'have not been able to go Into the fish-  ing business In Vancouver. I will explain how this Is brought about. When  the New England Fish Company bring  fish into Vancouver the choice-fish is  shipped for the American 'markets, but  in fishing for heavy fish, like halibut,  there is always some soft or bruised  fish which it Is impossible to ship tp  the Eastern market, and these fish are  dumped on the local market. Honorable members will say that, according to the regulations, they are not  permitted to sell ln Vancouver or on  the local market, To overcome' that  they place those Inferior fish in car*  and bill^them out to Bellingham. But  ln many cases the care would not leave  Vancouver. The freight and duty  would be paid and then they would be  sold in the market at Vancouver as Al  I fish. In some case* these fish are ac-  {1 tually sent out ot the country, but they  are ablpped back in the same car*.  Thl* practice ha* gone on for many  years, if thl* privilege had not been  granted to the New England Fish Company, Canadian companies would have  sprung up that could have shipped fl*b  through as the New England Fish  Company doe* to the market* on the  Atlantic Coast.. It 1* true they would  have had to pay a duty of. a cent a  pound on going into the American mar*  ket, but my contention 1* that the natural advantage we enjoy on the Pacific  Coast, if th* taw* were enforced, would  more than offset the one cent a pound  duty. We have a great natural advantage In having our harbor* Aftoen  hour* nearer the market, and this  more than offsets the handicap of a  one cent per pound duty. So I say  that the regulation or privilege that  was extended to tbe New England Fish  Company 1* inimical to the best interests of the Canadian fishermen on the  Pacific Coast, and I trust that the Minister of Marine and the present Oovernment will see their way clear to  cancel that permit and to secure a  mora thorough enforcement of the  laws on the Pacific Coast,  I wish to say a few words on Hie  whaling industry ot tbe Pacific Coast  Thl* I* also a most profitable industry  I am quite aware that whaling must  bo carried on on the high seas, but if  Subscription: fl.00 per year, 60 cents  per six months; 25 cents per three  months.

C.  the coast that the practice prevails of  capturing the young calf whale, bar  noning and anchoring it at the shore,  and waiting   till   the mother whale  come* up, seeking it* release, when  both are slaughtered together.   I say  that is a practice absolutely inhuman  and should not be> tolerated ln a civilized country.   If this whaling Industry  is going to last for any time It must  be ' conserved.    I am told that the  profits from whaling^ amount to from I  twenty to forty per cent   Now it cant  easily be seen that in consequence of;  such methods the whaling industry in-  a tew years will be totally extinct.   1  trust the present government will take  these thing* into consideration, and If  It be necessary to do so, to take the  question up with other nations who are  Interested and see that the whaling Industry on the Northern Pacific coast 1b  adequately protected and that such inhuman and unreasonable method* of  flatting as I have described should be  put a stop to.   From every standpoint  the fishing Industry 1* one that the  government should endeavor to conserve, both from the standpoint of revenue and the standpointof building up  a population  on  the   Pacific   Coast  which will constltue a bulwark for the  Dominion of Canada.   For the prairie  provinces it 1* essential   that   they  should   have a port on the Pacific  Coast if their development I* going to  be what they hope it will be.   If the  Pacific Coast I* going to be of any  use to Canada then it must be under  the direct control and dominance of  our own-countrymen people ot our own  race and sentiment, of our own religion, morals and national ideas. I do  not think that we should any longer  permit the present condition to obtain  and continue to issue licenses to Japanese  and Chinese, thereby fostering  a policy which ha* already proved  most suicidal in our fisheries,   it t*  necessary for our future welfare that  we build upon the Pacific Coast a population which will be a credit to Can-  aad and a bulwark to thl* Dominion;  and permit me to say that the time is  1* not far distant when the Dominion  and the Empire will need a bulwark on  the Pacific Coast  WHOI������f  The latest version of tne fifth commandment seem* to be, "Parent*, obey  your children it you want any peace,"  tor, as a matter of fact, thl* Inversion  of the old commandment obtain* to an  laming extent My attention had been  4ra*p������ to this painful fadt during conversation with one who la the mother  of a large and excellent family and  one who is a wise and keen observer  of human life.

On  tbe Pacific Coast we have had consid-  erble return* from the whaling industry. I have here in thl* report of the.  British Columbia government a recommendation to which I would xall the  attention of the Dominion government:  "Whalers operating in the Sea of  Japan and Behrlng sea do a considerable trade in whale meat, which is extensively used for food in Japan. Instead of converting the "beef into fertilizer it is salted, and in this form  commands a better price. The importation " of whale meat into Japan  amounts to over two million pounds  annually, representing a value of over  $50,000. Pickled whales tails are estimated a delicacy in Japan, and large,  quantities are shipped from this coast  "About two-third* of the whales captured are cow-whales, either with  suckling calves, or with young unborn,  the females being broader across tbe  body and slower in movement, as well  as yielding more oil, are more easily  captured than the whale.,  "This and the fact that whales are  hunte<! at all seasons should induce  the athorlties to adopt restrictive  measures for the preservation of these  valuable creatures. The indiscriminate slaughter of whales jn the North  Sea, the Atlantic, and the Gulf of St.  Lawrence has practically destroyed  ! the industry in those waters, and without protection the same thing is likely  to occur on this coaBt."

A Favorite Home for Travelers, Tour*  Ists and  Vancouverlta* When  Visiting the Capital City.  In view of the fact that many thousands of tourists, investor* and home-  seeker* will visit Vancouver Island  during the coming spring nd summer  we will refer in this article^ to Vlcto-  rl*'s favorite home and most popular  hostelry for tourists, travelers, home-'  seeker* and investor* white visiting  Victoria, B. C, th* capital city. The Do-  minion Hotel of Victoria today. jUY one  of the most popular and liberally patronized houses on the Pacific Coast.  ThiB 1* due not only to the excellent,  first cla** service rendered the traveling public at reasonable rates, but  also a very important factor I* that  the house 1* the evolution of over  twenty-one years under one proprietor, Mr. Stephen Jones, who opened  up in a small way In 1889, and who  ha* continued to build up trade ever  since owing to the fact that he has  kept pace with the time* and with  all the added modern improvement*  ha* kept the price the same, namely  two dollars and a half per day. Added  to this, and probably more importnt  than all, Is the most excellent management of the hotel during the past  three years under Mr. Thomas Stevenson, who has that happy and genial  faculty of handling the traveling public to^ Its perfect satisfaction. Prior  to taking the position of manager of  the Dominion Hotel at Victoria, Mr.  Stevenson was manager of the Hotel  winter* at Vancouver, B. C. Here he  made a host or friend* among travel-  elers who like to patronise tlie Dominion Hotel at Victoria, of which be  I* manager, and everyone 'who stop*  there is loud in bis praises of The Dominion. Vancouverites and others visiting Victoria will find no nicer place  to stay at Victoria at any price than  this popular caravansary- We therefore take pleasure In according the  Dominion Hotel and Its popular manager a high place here.  It Is operated on both the American  and European plans, and everything  runs like clockwork from clerk to chef  and bellboy. When at Victoria stop  at the Dominion Hotel.  Chiropractic  (KI-RO-PRAK-TIK)  is the knowledge of the cause of disease and the art of locating and removing the cause by hand.  THE BRAIN is the human dynamo  which generate* human electricity or  vital energy, and the spinal cord and  nerves are the instruments for conveying this force to all  organs and  ** Q*NO*  THE3B NERVES emanate, on each  side of the Bpinal cord, through semicircular grooves which are subject to  strain,' often producing pressure  upon the nerves, thus interfering with  the transmission of this vital energy.  THUS THE SUBLUXATION (slight  displacement) is the cause of bad effects or disease at the end of the,  nerve.  A CHIROPRACTOR locates and adjusts (fey hand) the displacement within the spinal column of the human  body., "When an adjustment Ib properly made, there will be 100 per cent  of transmiasion and 100 per cent, of  expression of life, which is PERFECT  HEALTH.
