It is one of the things that rip "fellow can understand why the workingmen should thus  vote against their best interests; but, apparently,  the Single "Gold" Standard has seduced the  voters of Ward 5 as it has all the Nations of the  Earth "with the wine of her fornication."  The legal action commenced by Mr. Woods  may give the voters of Ward 5 the time and chance  to reconsider the verdict at the polls. If it does  we shall be glad, for we regard the Gold campaign as having greatly injured the good name  of the municipality, and look forward to a continued Gold regime with shame.

Solicitors Notify South Vancouver Council They  Consider Mr. Gold Disqualified.  South Vancouver, March 11.���������Messrs. Bowser,  Reid & Wallbridge, solicitors for Mr. Woods, a  South Vancouver ratepayer, have notified the  reeve and council that they deem Mr. Edward  Gold still disqualified to sit as councillor by reason of the fact that he is defending an action  brought to recover penalties due the municipality  because he voted at council meetings while not  entitled to sit.  Graft is today a word to conjure with. As  long as everything went well���������workmen enjoying  "a full dinner pail," and business men making  money���������people had neither time nor inclination  to investigate the accounts and actions of public  administrators top closely. The cry was continuous and loud���������give us a good water supply��������� j  electric lights���������sidewalks���������open up all the roads  ���������permanent paving on main arteries of traffic���������  reeve and council were pushed and driven for  rapid developments in every quarter of the municipality. New residents were pouring into South  Vancouver by thousands and optimism reigned  everywhere supreme.  We all know now���������as we should have known  earlier���������that such a state of things could not  last forever, and that sooner or later there would  come a "stop-order" time. Bilt hind sight is al:  ways better than fore sight, and many of the  present day foremost calamity howlers, who are  accusing all our officials of incompetency and  our councillors of graft, were amongst our very  foremost real estate boosters and general optimists. .'':'': ''���������...  ' This is wrong; The Western Call believes���������-  and with some reason���������that South Vancouver is  being maligned in its officials, and that the campaign of false statements, malicious inuendoes and  loud charges of graft are doing that fair municipality a great injury. But above all the Western Call insists that the stoppage of the very  much needed work of paving is doing South Vancouver a double injury���������first, because every  cross road from River to Inlet is impassable; second, because the paving work would have given  employment to at least 600 men at a time when  the business interests of the community needed  assistance.  It is not true that South Vancouver could  not float her bonds. It is not true that the contract price of Main street paving is absurdly  high. > It is not true that wood block paving is  out of date, or inferior in quality and duration,  when properly selected, treated and laid, wood  block paving is peerless among pavements today.

Yorkshire Guarantee Building  Tins magnificent structure, just completed  and now opened for business, is one of the finest  and most modern amongst the business buildings  of our city.  It occupies 50 foot    frontage   on   Seymour  street with a depth of 120 feet, and stands as a  monument to the enterprise of the Board of Directors of the Yorkshire Guarantee and Securities  Corporation, Ltd., of which Mr. R.

Plenty of room for the lures that lead  The hearts of our youth astray,  But never a cent on a playground spent,  No, never a place to play.  Plenty of room for schools and halls,  Plenty of room for art.  Plenty of room for teas and balls,  Platform, stage and mart.

THOMAS CUNNINGHAM SERIOUSLY HURT  The Call is sorry to learn that the British  Columbia Fruit Inspector, Mr. Thomas Cunningham, met with a sad accident in Victoria, by  which he had an arm broken and suffered other  serious wounds. As a result he has to spend some  time in St. Joseph's Hospital in Victoria. We  extend to the sufferer and his excellent wife,  Mrs. Cunningham, our most sincere sympathy,  and trust that he will soon be around again to  attend to the public work which he has so much  at heart, and in which he has won a name as an  expert second to none on the continent of  America. It is not always that a man holding  an important public trust is wedded to his work  so that in and out of season, day and night, it is  his chief theme and thought, as has been the case  with "Mr. Cunningham.  Our efficient and popular Fruit Inspector is  one of the earliest of the pioneers of British Columbia. And he has been one of the Province  Builders in more senses than one. In fact at  every turn for nearly half a century, Mr. Cunningham has been associated with almost every  public matter of any great importance, and has  given the best of his splendid head and heart to  advance the interests of the Province in every  possible way. In additidt, he has always been  right-minded towards the Dominion of Canada  as a whole and an Imperialist of the most intense  and loyaL type. We trust and pray that he may  soon be around as has been his custom for so long  a time. His duties are important and of the  highest value to the country. His friends all over  British Columbia wish him a speedy recovery, and  a return to his public service for which he is so  eminently fitted by nature and experience.  1 VANCOUVER EMBROGLIO  It is said that the letter from Messrs. Bowser,  Reid & Wallbridge to the council setting forth the  lega/ disqualification of Mr. Gold as councillor,  was handed to Clerk Springford about 3 o'clock  on Tuesday afternoon during session of council.'  It is further alleged that Clerk Springford suppressed this letter during that council meeting,  handing it afterwards to Mr. Gold, and that certain councillors, when seen after the meeting,  were not aware that such a letter had been received. The Western Call demands & thorough;  sifting out of these allegations. If these things  are true the responsibility for this default of duty  should be brought home���������if untrue they should,  at once, be officially contradicted.  THE ACTION AGAINST MR. GOLD  It appears that the action against Mr. Gold  is taken by a ratepayer���������a Mr. H. Chester Wood,  and is brought in the name of the municipality.  Mr. Gold practically gave away his case by resigning, and the new action is taken on precisely  the same legal grounds. To make the case clearer  still, the old Act reads:  "Any person having an unsettled disputed  account against or due by the municipality is  disqualified." Whereas the new Act, which is  how law, says:      ���������.  '' Any person having an unsettled or disputed  account against or due by the municipality or ,  against whom the municipality has a disputed or  unsettled account���������is disqualified." '  There seems,then to be no uncertainty about  > the unseating of Mr. Gold again.   Further, the  Act etear)y;-^a^s'iihat-:any^|tate^yer:; may bring  action on behalf of the municipality���������same being  entitled to the benefit of any penalties recovered.  FHWT BE WOUWf A*P  THEN HE WOULDN'T  Mr. Gold seems to be in a quandary. On  Tuesday afternoon newly-elected Councillor Gold  took his seat on the council���������thereby, we understand, making himself liable for another maximum penalty of $2,500���������but that after receipt of  lawyers' letter���������more sober thoughts prevailed,  and Mr. Gold did not sit on committee at Thursday's meeting.  HONOR Tfl m HONOR IS Wi  Prof. J3. Odium, M.A., BSc.  No. Two. ___  -   jn last week'si"WesteW"traii7un1ieiMtW_above~  heading, I spoke in high terms, and truthful too,  of the stand taken by the Roman Catholic Church  in opposing legislation, making divorce any easier than it is at present.  I presume that certain Protestants imagine  that I went too far in my praise. And in addition, I took pains to say something anent the  deadness of the present day Protestantism as  manifested in many directions. Let me give  these good Protestants another knock or two in  passing. I said that "Protestantism has grown  loose-jointed, morally lax, unorthodox, useless and  practically decrepit."  Now, let us look at this a moment. Great Britain has a larger percentage of Protestants than  any other country on earth. In fact the percentage must be about eighty-five or ninety. This is  large enough to make comparisons.  Here is how I go at this question. British  Protestantism is so dead and useless that it has  given the Nationalists of Ireland carte blanche  to go ahead and separate Ireland from the Empire and to put the Protestants of that popish-  cursed island under the heel of the papist tyranny.  Could the Redmondites, O'Connorites, Dev-  linites and other Nationalists make Asquith give  Home Rule to Ireland if the Non-Conformists did  not back these Irish Traitors? I say that the  Protestant Non-Conformists are the voting and  effective traitors, and are more to be blamed than  the Nationalists who, under the guidance of their  Spiritual leaders and masters, imagine they are  serving God.  What about the voting Protestantism of Great  Britain in the meantime? My answer is that it is  dead, and-a useless corpse in connection with  this great religious, political, and Empire struggle. Yes, British Protestantism is dead, and must  reform, revivify, rejuvenate and re-convert or be  destroyed finally. i      '   ���������  This statement will reveal fairly clearly my  mind on the topic of Protestantism in Britain,  and in like manner in Canada, where is is very little better, for it is permitting the Roman Church  to destroy the Public School system, and the  French to force their language into quarters and  official positions.

Every phase of thought, every U*-  iosyncracy, every whim of humanity,  every freak of intellect has its worthy  representative in this ancient city of  Salem.  To our humble knowledge there are  in Jerusalem no less than 31 classes  of people, each, of which is imbued  with ideas and notions diametrically  opposed to the remaining 30.  Let us begin with the sectarian divisions among the Jews: >  1. Extreme Orthodox.  2. Moderate   Orthodox.  ". 3. Reformed Jews.  4. Sephardim.  5. Karaites.  6. Hebrew Christians.  Amongst the Mahommedans:  7. Conservative Moslems.  8. Liberal Moslems.  Amongst Christians:  9. Greek Orthodox.  10. Greek Catholics..  11. Latins.  12. Armenians.  13. Copts.  14. Abyssinians.

Latter Day Saints.  25. Mormons.  26. Templars.  27. Unitarians.  28. Christian Scientists.        ]  29. Rationalists.  30. Atheists.  31. Pantheists.  AH these sectarians, with very few  excellent exceptions, hold them aloof  from each other as if they were created by different deities and fighting  for different causes, in different  ranks. ' \  It,may perhaps interest our readers to learn a few characteristic facts  which we have noticed during" our  residence in Jerusalem.  Jewish Fanaticism.  The staunch Orthodox Jews, i*  order to perpetuate their conservatism and. inculcate the same upon the  coming generations, strictly interdict  their offspring from learning anything  but the Talmud and its commentaries.  All extraneous books or, literature  of any description whatsoever,  though written in Hebrew, are carefully withheld from their children  lest their tender minds be influenced  against the traditional Orthodoxy.  The Reformed Jews.  The Reformed Jews who are mightily subventioned! and reinforced by  their influential confraternity with  their1 bigoted and benighted brethren.  From every direction, the strongholds and citadels of Orthodoxy are  being vigorously bombarded. The  kindergartens, jthe schools and gymnasiums, have;.. shaken the' very foundations of rabbinical Judaism.  There the Talmud is treated as ;i  loreyrid^Or--  lost their  compilation of ancient  iental  fables  which  have  applicability to the present developed  state of civilization. -;���������':���������'  Hence the unceasing strife and in-,  tellectual wrestling betwen great factions in this city of peace.  The Christian Sects.  It has almost become universally  proverbial that the,numerousXhris-  tian sects; in Jerusalem can never  agree amongst themselves to differ,  and very often military intervention  is urgently required to maintain ������jrder  and decency amongst them.  Specially insured against burglary  " , and hold-ups.  NOTABY PUBLIC  Dow, Fraser & Co.  317-321  LIMITED  Cambie Street  2313 Main Street  Between 7th and 8th Ave*.  Who does not know that on every  Christmas Eve special detachments  of Mahomm^dan soldiers and police  are dispatched to Bethlehem to prevent "disturbance amongst the sects  whilst worshipping in the Holy  church of the Nativity?  The Templars.  These gentlemen are / endeavoring  hard to supplant and undermine Jewish influence in Palestine. They consider the Jews as a people irretriv-  ably out of favor with their old God,  and that the Templars are the modern1" chosen people by whom the  Temple of the Lord shall, be rebuilt,  and to whom alone belongs the future greatness and universality.  The Lutherans.  These evangelical Christians content themselves with the extension  of German Imperialism and aggrandisement, and they, whilst beautifully singing in their magnificent  Church of the Redeemer (God'1 of  Abraham Praise) (Rock of Ages.  Cleft for Me), are at the same time  pronounced Antisemites. ,,-\  Atheists. ,(  In answer to 'a querry: What  brought you to Jerusalem? an 'inveterate and aggressive Atheist ���������'replied to the following effect:  "I came to Jerusalem because it  was from there that the three uppermost religious have' emanated���������religions, which I am thoroughly convinced were invented and concocted  by human brains; and it is from Jerusalem that the contradiction and re-  futal must be proclaimed to the uttermost part of the earth. I am happy  to. state that since my sojourn here  I have won over many to my views.  Yes, I have gained many adherents  even from among the priests of the  various convents who help me greatly  in my propaganda."  Adventists.  We also asked a staunch Adven-  tist what the object of his coming  to Jerusalem was. To this he answered:    * _  "I came to witness the downfall of  Gog and Magog outside the wall's of  ancient Jerusalem, and also behold  with my own eyes how the anti-  Christ is defeated and chained to the  tower of David."  We interrogated a representative  Mormon as to his presence here:.  "L came to Jerusalem, said- the  worthy gentleman in reply; I came  to expose the errors of pseudo-Mor-  monism, which has disgraced Christianity by its licentious, bigamous  practices.: I intend to found in this  city of the Lord a church of Latter  Day Saints/' ,  We came across an advocate of  Sabbatarianism who, in answer to the  same querry, said:  "My object in coming to Jerusalem  was to decry from here the scandalous  violation of the real Seventh Day  Sabbath, in which day Jehovah rested  from all his labors and hallowed it to  be observed as. a day of rest from  generation to generation and all  through the ages, and behold, now  Sunday is observed instead of Sat-1  urday!": ."'���������.'"'" :.:;.:., ���������..���������'  :-':' '������������������-���������: Baptists.;  ';";";  We met a BaptistHwrhVliTsuredTuir  most faithfully that his sole object  in coming to Jerusalem was to,be  baptised in the River Jordan, by immersion, and thus qualify himself for  administering the same rite to others.  "Oh! ejaculated the worthy gentleman, if the world only knew that unless one is baptised by immersion it  is impossible to.be saved."  We could cite many more of the  characteristic idiosycracies of most  of the residents in the Holy City, but  enough for today.  .���������J'..'

It how  takes1-twenty days to get the government mails overland, whereas an  aeroplane can easily do it in two.  He said his next long flight would be  from Peking to Paris, perhaps next  spring.  Constructors who are working at  plans for a one-day endurance and  distance fight machine to beat the  German record, announce that they  will illuminate the route from  Etampes to Cercottes with lamps of  from, one to two thousand candle-  power every two and a half miles.  Mr. Baucort may be the first pilot  chosen to attempt to beat the record.  World's Output of New Ships;  Lloyd's Summary Gives 1930 as Total  for 1913.  During the year 1913 the shipyards  of the world turned out 1930 vessels  ���������warships and merchant craft of all  kin^d���������totalling 4,009,791 tons. Ouf  percentages of the world's output in  merchant tonnage was 58, whereas  in 1912 it was 60 and in 1911 68. Nevertheless our total tonnage for the  year is some 200,000 greater than that  of the previous' two years. These  and other astonishing figures are disclosed in the annual- summary of the  world's shipbuilding for 1913 submitted recently by Lloyd's Register  of Shipping.  The output of mercantile tonnage  in the United Kingdom for the year  shows an increase of 193,639 on that  of the previous year, and is the highest ever reached, exceeding the previous record by more than 100,000  tons. As regards war vessels, the  total is nearly 80,000 tons more than  in 1912. Practically the whole of the  tonnage launched has been built of  steel, and more than 99 per cent, of it  is steam tonnage.  The gross tonnage of English vessels lost and broken up during the last  twelve months is stated as being 241,-  000 tons/while the sales to other  countries reached the record total of  780,000 tons. As against this, only  about 90,000 tons belonging to other  countries were purchased by owners  here.   '. . ..-''>;��������� '..-.'.���������.  N Striking Increase.  There was a striking increase of  very big. vessels built in this country  during 1913. In the five years 1908-  12 205 vessels of 6,000 tons and upwards were launched in the United  Kingdom, showing the yearly average  of 41 vessels, and of the total number.  57 were of 10,000 tons and upwards  (yearly average about eleven.) The  returns for 1913 show that 84 vessels  of '6,000 tons and over 10,000 tons  each. The following is a list, beginning with the giant Cunard liner  Aquitania of the eleven biggest vessels launched last year:  Gross Tons  Aquitania   47,000  Alsatian  18,485  Calgarjan   18,485  Andes  .'  15,620  Alcantara    15,600  Orduna  -  15,600  Ulysses   14,491  Tubantia .  14,055  Gelria    13,868  Alaunia  13.450  Andania  :.-  13,405  The average tonnage of steamers  launched in the United ���������; Kingdom during the year was 2,995; bui; if steamers of less than 500 tons be excluded  the average of the-remaining vessels  reaches 4,292 tons, which is a considerable advance on the previous rnean  averages of the previous five years.;  During 1913 seven steamers were  launched with a total tonnage of 88,-  927 which will have turbines only.  The launches for the year also includes three vessels of a total tonnage  of 8,494 tons with internal combustion  engines. In addition, 14 small vessels of under 300 tons, each,;also fited  | with motors, were launched: during  ''the year.: ���������  '      Where Ships Were^uUt,  The Glasgow district occupies the  f ifit'plScer rambngrthe ^shipbuilding  centers of the country, showing an  output of 415,044 tons. Then follow  Newcastle (366,331 tons), Sunderland  (299,964 tons), Greenock (269,743  tons), Middlesborough (154,743 tons),  Hartlepool (153,071 tons), and Belfast (129,081 tons). In warship tonnage Glasgow'also leads with 66,803  tons displacement, closely followed  by Newcastle, 65,737 tons, and Barrow  54,400 tons.  As regards the movement of the  shipbuilding industry during the  course of 1913, Lloyd's Register returns show that at the opening of  the year, irrespective of warships,  1,970,065 tons were, being built in the  United Kingdom.

If they  had ever read Edmund Burke they  would have learned that when a party  starts  out to  make  "Professions  of  Arthur Jones, the English playright.  They left last week for England,  where their honeymoon will be spent.  "One of tne cnarges against' the  Borden administration, a charge not  made by. any responsible authority,  but only in the wild  Liberal news  papers, is that it has prevailed upon  supernatural virtue in order to cap-Jthe Railway Board to  delay its  de-  tivate those good souls whose credulous morality is so valuable a ^treasure to crafty politicians," it invariably comes to grief. Years ago the  Liberals had a monopoly of all the  virtues and then proceeded to give us  an exhibition of corruption in high  places such as the country had never  before witnessed.  It is obvious too that'when a party  flings its professions overboard, its  members become demoralized and  are apt to fall back on crooked proceedings to fill their pockets. It is  astonishing to what extent Liberals  have carried the process of jettisoning  their old beliefs.  In a small way it was illustrated in  the House the other, night. When the;  Provinces of\ Saskatchewan and Alberta were established, the -Laurier,  administration gave them most gen-;  erous financial terms to compensate  them for the circumstance that the  Dominion Government retained possession of their lands because it had  to provide the money for colonizing  them by bringing in immigrants..  The Liberals of those Provinces;  were amply, satisfied, with the conditions then granted. ���������, Mr..,; Walter  Scott, the Premier of Saskatchewan,  declared over and over again that it  was beter for them to have the money  than to have to bear the burden of  settling the lands or, of dea ling with  them as a Provincial asset.  Mr. Borden, when in Opposit ion,  thought it would be better for the  Provinces to .control their own lands,.  providedvof course they relinquished'  the large grant from the Dominion,  treasury which they were receiving  in compensation. But how, these  Western Liberals are demanding not  only that they should have.'....control',  of their lands but that they should  continue to ^e given the large subsidies granted in lieu thereof, and  accuse Mr, Borden of limiting their  rights and curtailing their provincial  autonomy.--- . i.-t.-. ���������'������������������  The older provinces think with a  good deal of justice this-would be unfair to them, that if the Western Provinces are to receive such abundant  cash subsidies from the "Federal  treasury as: compensation for their  lands being held by the Federal Government, they should not have both;  they should not get the lands without  |; I relinquishing- the quid pro quo which  ������'.Rhey are receiving in their place. No  one takes stronger grounds bn this  question than Mr; George Murray,  Premier of Nova' Scotia, a Liberal of  Liberals, who .argues in a letter to  Mr. Borden that, if this grab is to be.  consummated the Maritime Provinces  must receive extra financial consideration from the Dominion.  Yet here, we see Liberals in the  House jibing,at Mr. Borden for not  fulfilling his^pledgetb^ivt-the^Pfa^l  HUGS) APPLE  SHIPMENTS.  Nearly Hall a Million Boxes Marketed From British, Columbia Last  Season; Striking Figures.  Nearly half a million boxes, equal  to somethin, like 26,500,000 pounds,  of British Columbia apples were marketed last season, according to figures compiled by R. G. L. Clarke,  chief inspector in British Columbia  for the: Dominion fruit inspection department, and his assistant inspector,  A. H. Flack.  "" The greater portion of the fruit was  grown  in  the    Okanagan  with   the  Kamloops   district   next  in  point  ' production.

V  The shipments of British Columbia-  ��������� grown apples to Australia and New  Zealand last year established a new  P record, 31,127 cases being consigned  iVoverseas  compared  with   37,127  sent  from the United States to the Anti-  i podes.  progress for the Hudson's Bay Company. No official confirmation of the  rumor has been forthcoming yet, but  there were many who pointed to certain negotiations now in progress as  indicative.        r ���������.  >   ���������  DOMINION  DEPARTMENT  OF AGRICULTURE  m  EATON & CO.  Some time ago it was rumored that  a block on Broadway had been purr  '^chased for Eaton & Co., of Toronto,  with the view to open a large Department Store here. Now, the report comes from Victoria that the  greatest department store in Canada  and one of the largest in the world, is  to eiect a huge building in Victoria,  exactly  opposite   the   block  now   in  Dairy Branch  Within the next few weeks several  hundred cheese factories will be opening, hundreds of farmers will be preparing to milk thousands of freshly  of' calved cows. Logically this begin-  returhs^ning of a new season is the time to  commence keeping records of production of the cows separately. Just  a knowledge of the total yield of milk  from the whole herd may give the  owner an idea of the average yield  per cow, but that does not give quite  enough information. There may be  a thousand pounds of milk difference  in the total yield of two cows for the  season, which would be unnoticeable  in the small difference in the appearance of their two milk pails' daily.  Often the difference is far more than  a thousand pounds* yet all- cows are  lumped, together, good, poor and med-  iunyall alike, when taking merely an  average.  Since keeping records of individual  production many a dairwman has increased the average of his herd by  fifteen hundred, and two thousand  pounds of milk or more, because he  has,been able to detect the poor, unprofitable cows that masquerade as  real dairy cows. On application to  the Dairy Division, Ottawa, milk rec-  ored"forms and instructions are supplied free.     Write   today,  and   begin  cision in the Western- rate case  This, of course, is absurd. The government might as well be accused of  tampering with the Supreme Court.  During their long term of office  the Liberals obtained some concessions in the matter of rates from the  Canadian Pacific Railway at the time  they subsidized it to build the Crow's  Nest Pass railway. Otherwise, during the existence of the Railway Committee of the Privy Council, which  had a tolerably large authority down  to 1903, when the present Railway  Board was established, the Liberals  never lifted a hand for a further reduction.  Incidentally, it may be well to note  that while the: Conservative Government pf Manitoba, when guaranteeing  certain railway bonds, insisted on the  right of looking after railway rates,  the Liberal Governments of Saskatchewan"- and Alberta have guaranteed  enormous sums without asking the  favored companies to comply with any  regulations whatsoever about rates.  Coming back to Federal affairs,  the Conservatives when they came  into office in-1911 referred the complaints of the: Winnipeg Board of  Trade to the late>Mr. Justice Mabee  and his colleagues; and, going a step  further .got the Board to deal with  express rates, which have since been  reduced by about 20 per cent. When  they sent the question of rail rates to  the Board in November, 1911, Mr.  Mabee said .that it was the first occasion upon which any complaint had  been, made directly.^ Of course, the  Board had seen and read a great many  newspaper articles on the subject,  but it was hot until the Conservative  Government forwarded the grievances of the Winnipeg .merchants  that any definite step was taken to  procure them redress.  Under these: circumstances it is a  little astonishing to find Liberals  blaming the Borden, administration  for neglecting 4he interests of *the  Western settler. Mr. Mabee's death  occassioned a good deal of delay,  but, shortly after, the enquiry was  started by Mr. Justice Bray ton, the  present ablejhead of the Board, and  his associates, the Government employing capable lawyers to represent  it in the public interest.  The delay ���������' since has not been due  to any action, direct or indirect, of  the Government, but to the exigencies  of the case. It is surely unnecessary  to say tht the Government would not  and could not interfere with the processes of a tribunal of sd much importance. The Provinces of Saskatchewan and Alberta are represented by counsel of their own, so is  Manitoba; and these' lawyers for  good and sufficient reasons have time  and^again asked for adjournments -in  .-.��������������������������� - ��������� ..   i    r tu ���������   I���������..!..-order'to fortify themselves with new  irie Provinces control of their lands . ��������� ,  iT-i      .-ii       ���������    ���������       4-u ���������t\.,~..maii��������� evidence and bring about a fair de-  while  still  enjoying  the abnormally    . . u , ������  Alert Adalt Bible Class ot Moan*  tain View/Methodnt Church meets at  2.30 every Sunday.

The decision of the Board wiil  probably be given in a few days.  Liberal speakers contend that because it has been shown that rates  in the West arc higher than those in  the East, the case for the West  lias been sufficiently proved, and  the Board should forthwith proceed to reduce the Western  ones. The traveller from the East  finds on visiting the West that everything is higher there. His hotel bill  is higher, he pays more for a newspaper or for a suit of clothes, and a  short time ago he certainly paid a  great deal more for a piece of real  estate. He is told and believes that  the conditions in a new country  necessitates these higher prices, but  when Jt comes to the sale of railway  transportation our brethren of the  Western Grain Growers' Association  declare that the price should not be  higher than in Eastern Canada.  Whatever the judgment of the Railway Board may be, everyone will accept it as that of a perfectly impartial and thoroughly well informed  court. Meantime only an inveterate  partisan will accuse the Government,  which has done so much for the interests of the West, of seeking to influence the Board or to delay its bring about a reduction of rates I be reduced below a living basis-their  judgment.

Some allege that 15,000,000 of these classes would embrace the religion of Jesus if there were preachers  and teachers for them. Missionaries report that  they are being constantly beset by invitations  from all direction to go out into the country  villages and baptize the people.  The center of this movement is around Delhi,  though it is also observed in the Punjab and  Baroda.  It is freely admitted that it is not religion  ajone which constrains these vast .populations toward Christianity, but also the call to the freedom  and joy of the life that they see before them in:  Jesus Christ. Hinduism, from immemorial ages,  has branded these agricultural ��������� ��������� workers and  servants as "untouchables" and degraded them  well nigh to the level of the beasts. Christianity,  in contrast, summons them to be men and offers  to acknowledge them as men, and the irresistible  call is accentuated by the improved condition  already manifest in those communities, that have  become Christian.; Better housing, better clothing and better food are already the rewards of  the villagers who have come into the freedom  ot the Christian life.  Intelligent Hindus of the Brahman class are  keenly alive to the defeat of their religion which  is implied in the loss of these lower classes. They  do not pretend today to look upon them with  contempt and the term * 'untouchable" has been  dropped. Representative Brahmins are every  where saying that the lower castes must be retained for Wnduiam iwd in vorder to retain them  they must be given such a chance for life as  Christianity offers'them. This attitude marks a  complete revolution in the Hindu spirit.  The British East Jndia Company said at the  beginning of the nineteenth century, <fThe sending of Christian missionaries into our Eastern  possessions is the maddest, most expensive, most  unwarranted project that was ever proposed by  a lunatic enthusiast" The English iieutenarit-  governor of1 Bengal..said at;theclosei_of_ihA,_niBev  teenth century, "In iny judgment Christian  missionaries have done more lasting good to the  Seople of India than all other agencies com-  ined." i;!v:>.:-...'  A Rajah of central India said to me: "Come  out and stay with us; we haven't a great many-  English-speaking men, but we can gather from  fifty to one hundred college men in my state, and  I will bring them to my palace and keep them;  come out and teach us the fundamentals of  Christianity." I said to him: "Are you a Christian 1" "No," he said, "I am not a Christian,  and I shall never be a Christian; I am a Hindu,  but my grandchildren and all our grandchildren  here in India will be Christians, and we want  them taught now. Tell your people when they  send missionaries to India to send their best men,  because India will be a Christian country within  half a century." That was the testimony of a  Rajah.���������G. P. Pentecost.  Integrity.  A rural legislator in Illinois was approached  by one of the lobbyists of the gas companies,  who told him that the bill concerned only  Chicago, that a vote for the bill would mean  nothing to the folks down home, but to him���������  well two thousand dollars would mean a good  deal to him! While the lobbyist talked, the roll-  call was being delayed for a sign from him, for  only one vote or-two was needed to make the  bill safe. The. man listened, then when the lobbyist had ended, he turned his dull blue eyes on  him and slowly answered:  " 'I reckon you're right; I'm. poor, and I've  got a big family. And you're right too, when  you say my people won't know.nor care; they  won't; they don't know nor care a damn; they  won't send me back here of course. And God  knows what's to come of my wife and my children; I'm going home to them tomorrow and on  Monday I'm going to hunt me a job in the  harvest-field; I reckon III die in the poorhouse.  Ye?. T'm croine home���������but"���������he stopped and  looked the lobbyist in the eye���������"I'm going home  an honest man."  "HONOR TO WHOM HONOR IS DUE."  {Continued from page 1)  Public offices are going to the Roman Catholics far beyond their proportion of the population and beyond their deserts according to personal worth and fitness.  And bear in mind that Protestantism in Canada is permiting our cowardly politicians of the  Ottawa and Provincial Governments to do these  things. Therefore am I seriously wrong in saying,  it is dead and useless in a national and political  way? And a thing that is no good nationally  and politically is very little good in any other  way, so far as the public acts and beliefs of  humans go.  Enough of this topic for the present. I must  return to "Honor to Whom Honor Is Due:1'  Now, in the last "Call," I was dealing with the  Public and Official attitude of the Roman Catholic Church in relation to legislation looking to  dealing with divorce matters. I did not say why  the Roman Church is acting as it is doing and  has consistently done for so long. But I now.  deal with this attitude, and the cause in short'  terms, easily to be understood.  Why does the R. Church oppose legislation  dealing with divorces t      Simply because that  Church claims that the matter of divorce as well  as marriage is no concern of the State, or Nation,  only so far as the State or Nation is a part of the  machinery of the Roman Catholic Church.   The  Church alone is the competent anthority to deal  with marriages or divorces in any and in every  case.   The State or Nation has no standing'in.,  these matters any more than in making laws td  manage the Eucharistic services of the church.  The Church claims it alone is capable of dealing.,  with the church sacraments; and marriage is one;  of these sacraments. '  If the Church desire for any cause to separate  husband and wife, then it iscompetent to so separate. But the State goes beyond its sphere in  attempting to legislate for the making or unmaking of marriages, according to official Ror  manism.  ���������'��������� .;.v;.:\<vf.v:.>>  Hence the action in relation to such' cases as'  come under the "Ne Temere Decree."   Husband'  and wife, not married by a It. C. Priest, are hot,  married at all, as per the official claims of the  Church.   Hence to separate such families is not  an act of divorce, for how could there be divorce  if there be no    real    sacramental    marriage f  Mothers, wives, husbands, fathers, children may  all go to ruin, and to heart-break, if a priest has  not married the pair in the first place. ;  Now look back. The R. C. Church does stand  out against divorces execpt for the ������ause given  in Scripture. In this that Church is right. In the  United States divorce is as common as soda on  the alkali plains. And whyf Simply because it  has been brought about by non-Roman Catholics.  Hence in the main, Protestants must shoulder  the burden, the responsibility and the disgrace  of the wholesale divorces procured over that  country from ocean to ocean. It is the eternal  shame of Protestantism that it is so. It would,  be worse were it poti for the R. C. Church. But.  in-this very act, deep down in the heart,ana  head of official Romanism, if roy analysis as above  set put be true, there can be little credit given  from the national view point. This is so because the Church claims "no standing in the  matter 10 far a* the nation It conoerned.. The  opposition to legislative divorce is based on the  ground that Divorce and Marriage belong to the  Church alone, and the "Church" is Roman Catholic. AH others marrying are aiding in the processes of public: adultery and bastardy. And  Protestants stand this charge by their R. C. fel'-  low citizens. And why t Simply because they  are cringers. './'yy. ::���������  In my next I shall look into the matter of celibacy,monasteries; cloisters, nunneries and the  Confessional. From this side we shall have a  peep at the results on domestic, clerical, and national purity. perhaps when I am through the  "Western-Catholic''' will quote me at length for  the benefit of its readers! ,And perhaps not! In  th������-meaotime;-I would suggest to -my Protestant  friends who have? grown a little hot concerning  the contents of my first letter, or article, to be  patient fret them go to work and stir up to a  Hying and holy zeal the members of their churches  arid see if Protestantism can actually do something besides build costly churches and seek butv  high priced drawing-card-ministers.  Now. for a word concerning active, living'and1  truly militant Protestantism. There is such to be  found, for working purposes in relation to the  grinding, everlasting' machinations of the"  Jesuitic-controlled Papacy and it must be sought,  for chiefly in the Orange Association, the Sons  of England and other similar institutions. Here  is where Protestantism is alive, and inspired with  a holy and devoted zeal in the interests of liberty,  justice, brotherhood, national loyalty, and all  that aid in solid Empire building.  Protestantism has no machinery, no hands,  no feet, no head, no direction of control, outside  of the above mentioned bodies which exist solely  to protect the interests of the individual, the  home, the nation and the Empire. Hence it fol-"  lows that when I strike at Protestantism, I exclude all those who are inspired to put themselves  into working association with those who stand  daily for something; and have 'adopted the  machinery by which they can give effect to their  aims. -.  OUR IMMIGRANTS  They come, they go!   One treads the other's heel;  And some we laugh and some we weep to see,  And some we fear; but in the throng we feel  The mighty throb of our own destiny.  Outstretched their hands to take whate'er we  give-  Honor, dishonor, daily bread, or bane���������  Not theirs to choose how we may bid them live,  jBut what we give we shall receive again.  O Canada, charge not thy fate to these!  The power is ours to mold them or to mar;  But freedom's voice, far down the centuries,  Shall sound our choice from blazing star to  star!  4$44fr4$4^4$4������fr4fr4JM$443,4fr.|*l|4.$.>ft.fr������|.4|..frl$. folfr-ifr *{*������S������4������  I   Western News   $'  4^4$4^4*^������m^4^4$M$M$44$m(4434������2m������m$M������44$44$44$M$������4$44������|^44$M$.  North Battleford Mecca for Settlers.  North Battleford, Sask.���������Boa'.-* of  Trade reports now at hand and inquiries from settlers expecting to locate in the North Battleford district  during the coming season indicate the  biggest immigration movement known  in the history of the city. The p .Int  of special attraction just at the present time appears to be the marked  success of the co-operative idea as  between the local merchants and the  producers, the Retail Merchants' Association being amalgamated with  the Farmers'' Association, and th e  two holding joint meetings for mutual  aid. .As a result the mixed famuiff  movement is having no trouble to  secure very, liberal financial support,  and the live stock industry is developing with great rapidity.  Should Encourage B. C. Producers.  Elko, B. C���������The fact that instead  of decreasing, British Columbia's importations of food stuffs and other  farm products show a steady increase  from year to year has called the attention once more to the exceptional  market now available for local fruit  growers and poultry and dairy farmers in this section of the West. It  appears that at the present time not  less; than $40,000 a day is being sent  but of the Province 'for agricultural  products alone, whereas all but a  very few of these products could be  home grown. It is this situation, it  is believed,, that is inducing small  fruit ranchers, as well as many others  of large means to take up the best of  tlie improved- farm lands that are being offered on ��������� favorable terms and  in desirable locations.  Saskatchewan's Youngest City  Swift Current, Sask.���������-From acceptances now at hand at board of  trade headquarters it appears assured that practically every public  body between the great lakes and the  Rockies will be represented at .the  approaching .celebration in commen-  oration of Swift Current's entrance  into the status of a city. The special  distinction claimed by Swift Current  just at this' time is the notable record  of building permits for the past year,  the actual figures being $1,018,308 in  1913 as/ compared with $791,014 in  1912. Another striking feature of the  record is that the buildings for which  these permits were taken out in 1913  were practically all completed, whereas at other important centres it appears that in many instances buildings were not even . commenced or  construction was suspended owing to  the' money stringency.      V  Attracting Farm Settlers/ ,  Moose Jaw, Sask.���������Regarding tbe  outlook for immigration from the  States into Western Canada foT the  coming season, the figures indicate  that the movement has already made  a strong start, with every prospect^  for a high record before fall. The  bulk of the travel at present is from  Missouri, Ohio, Nebraska and South  Dakota, according to immigration officials. From a single county, Moody,  South Dakota, it is stated at least  2,000 settlers have already come to  Canada. The C. P. R. colonization  policy appears to be gaining rapidly  in favor as it becomes better known  among well-to-do American farmers,  and the important extensions of the  plans of this railway in 'the way of  ready made and irrigated farms are  expected to prove a strong drawing  card for the present year.  City Planning, at Grand Forks.  Grand Forks* B. C���������City planning  looking to the future of Grand Forks  for years to come is to be the keynote of .the citizens' movement, recently organized' here with the slogan of "A better city." Already the  city council has gone on record as  unqualifidely opposed to any subdivision plans which fail to provide for  streets of the full width of 66 feet,  this stand being taken for the protection of property .owners whose interests might be threatened by ill considered platting of adjoining lands.  Included in the plans of the citizens'  movement will be the equipment of a  public reading room, game room and  gymuasium, the support of the city  council having now been pledged to  this undertaking. ;  Renewed Activity at Kamloops  Kamloops, B. C���������With the opening  of the North Thompson valley by the  early .completion "of the Canadian  Northern the advantages arising from  the present campaign of the Provincial commissioners of conservation are  now gaining wide appreciation. In  this valley will soon be in operation  the Provincial Illustration farm,.the  first of its kind to be opened in British Columbia. So substantial has  been the agricultural development of  Kamloops within the past season or  two that the construction of an eleva.  tor is now under consideration to meet  the needs of the local situation; and  the railway company has also undertaken to furnish additional trackage  to cope with the increased volume of  shipments which include not only  grain, but fruit, live stock, and dairy  and poultry products as well.  No Fuel Shortage at Tofield.  Tofield, Alta.���������Recent gas tests by  two Westinghouse machines have furnished striking evidence as to the  high quality of Tofield coal for gas  producing purposes. That the coal is  ftrongly impregnated with gas appears  from the fact that it continues burning with a flame until almost completely reduced to ash. Tofield's extensive coal deposits lie almost at  the surface of the ground, thus offering a special inducement to the  manufacturer seeking a location where  low cost fuel is an important consideration. Through figures given  out by the local industrial committee  it appears that Tofield coal holds first  place for low cost of delivery at the  mine for manufacturing purposes,  whether to be used as taken from the  ground or for gas production.

Five, months ago Leonard Dixon,  a young rancher living near East  sound, Orcas island, found a queer appearing mass in the water near his  place. He thought it might be ambergris, so sent a sample to Pullman  college for analysis. Et was returned  with the report that the professors  there did not know what it was.  Some weeks later a member of the  Arctic club, Seattle, who knew of the  find, took a'sample to Germany, and  now a. letter has come to Mr. Dixon  stating the substance is ambergris  and asking for information as to the  quantity of the find. ,  In the meantime Dixon has abandoned the idea that it was ambergris  and used a part of the substance as  skid grease, finding it excellent for  this purpose. The ambergris is said  to be valued at from $16 to $20 an  ounce.  The ambergris was found off what  is known as Agate beach, a favorite  place for summer visitors on Orcas  island, and is supposed to have been  washed in from the Gulf of Georgia.

All  the   guarantees   for  the  [whole system work out at a cost of  less than $15,000"per mile, a fact which  (|completely  disposes  of-the   contention made by some people that the  Dominion   and   the   Provinces   have  built the Canadian Northern system  .and  presented    it. to  Mackenzie  &  1 Mann.  ���������   a   ���������  Charles Edward Russell declares  [ that the American railroads have been  [looted to' the limit through private  [greed, and that it will take nine bullions of- do liars to put them into  Ifirst class shape.

'  Government Takes Preliminary Step  in the Direction of Oil Monopoly  Berlin, Fe"b. 26.���������A promise to  withdraw all the oil lands in German  New Guinea from private exploitation pending investigation of their  nature and extent was given today by  Dr. Wilhelm Solf, Minister for the  Colonies, at the instigation.of the  Budget Committee.-  An appropriation of $125,000 was  passed by the committee for the purposes of survey.  Dr. Solf said the companies bidding for the concession had all demanded the exclusive rights of exploitation. *The Government was opposed to doing this, as a plan for the  operation of the oil fields by the Government -was under- consideration.  ment to enter into' the business of  producing oil in ��������� order to facilitate  the establishment of the proposed  oil monopoly in opposition to the  Standard Oil Company. The main  obstacle to this hitherto has been the  difficulty of guaranteeing an adequate supply of oil from important  sources.  ���������   ���������   ���������  THE COUNTRY OF VINEYARDS  FREE GOVERNMENT MAPS  France is the greatest wine-producing country in he world, but its vineyards are slowly declining. None the  lessywo fewer than a million and a  half Frenchmen still are 'proprietors  of vineyards, and between them they  own well over 4,000,000 acres.  Of the eighty-seven departments  of France, only nine have no vineyards at all. The chief vine-growing, department is the Herault, where  55,000 proprietors own 450,000 acres;  the Bordeaux district has 325,000  acres'' divided betwen .64,000 proprietors! %  How great is the production of  wine .in France is shown by the statistics for the year 19^1, which were  published recently. In this year the  total'amount of wine produced in the  country was 44,885,000, hectolitres���������  that is to to say, nearly a thousand  million gallons.

Friday, March 13, 1914  ',  GENERAL NEWS ITEMS  {  X  Islands Under U. S. A.  The National Geolographicai Society reports  that the United States now has exactly 8,000  islands, supporting a popualtion of 10,000,000,  and with a commerce of $300,000,000 annually.  American capital invested in them aggregates  approximately $400,000,000; they ship to the  United States $100,000,000 of products every year  and take in exchange products of about equal  value. A surprising feature is the development  of Porto Rico, Hawaii and the Alaskan islands.  When Porto Rico came under American, rule  fifteen years ago there was but one school building on the island, while today there are 1,200.  There were 25,000 pupils enrolled in the first year  of American administration, now there are 175,-  000. Production of sugar has grown from  65,000 tons a ylear to 365,000. Foreign commerce  was about $20,000,000 a year; now it is nearly  $100,000,000. Then the island bought about  $2,500,000 worth of ammunition products\a year;  now nearly $40,000,000. Hawaii has been wonderfully prosperous, and Alaska's salmon crop alone  is each year worth double the cost of the territory.  An inch of rainfall is equivalent to 603 barrels of 45 gallons each, to the acre. This amount  of water weighs over one hundred and thirteen  tons. Think of hauling it to the farms in wagons  holding a ton each. That seemingly light air and  clouds are capable of handling this enormous  amount of water is one of the marvels of meteorology. One inch of rain is not such a heavy  rainfall either.  Fifth Ave. Presbyterian Church  The Fifth Avenue Presbyterian Church, of  New York City, of which jthe Rev. Dr. John  Henry Jowett is minister, in the last fiscal year  contributed $584,314 for religious work, exceeding its own record of the previous year by more  than' $100,000. Of the $584,314 raised in the  twelvemonth, $52,720 was spent for the local expenses of the church which centers in the big  Gothic Building at Fifth Avenue and Fifty-fifth  Street. The contributions for home missions were  $69,914, and for foreign missions $35,625. This  church is third in point of membership among  Presbyterian churches of America, with its congregation of 2,436. The First Presbyterian  Church of Seattle is the largest, with a membership of 5,625, and the Bethany Church, ,pf  Philadelphia is second with 3,514.  ���������i~M^H~M*,fr,W~W~H~W"H~H~^^*i^  VARIOUS  ,jM5~$^.$M$M$������$M&.}^Mf������H,4MHM$MS������HN^^  DUKE OF SUTHERLAND'S ESTATE TO BE  SOLD BY AUCTION.,  "I Won't Works'' of the World  Of 500 "unemployed'' men who were sheltered by the city authorities of Portland, Ore., only  fifty applied when the city offered them work,  and of the fifty only twelve showed up at .the  place where the work was to be done. .,-:;  Jerusalem to Bethlehem  A concession for the construction of a street  car line from Jerusalem to Bethlehem and for  the lighting of Jerusalem by electricity has been  granted by the Turkish Government.

Sacramento, Cal., March 9.���������Jack London, the  author, announces this week his candidacy for  governor on the Socialist ticket. It is also said  by his friends that he. will make a bid for the Prohibition nomination.  London has been an avowed Socialist for over  ten years, and he has made many addresses in the  Socialist cause all over the country. It is a peculiar fact, however, that he lives like an English  country gentleman.  Many Prohibitionists will not accept London  as a candidate, as they say the novelist in "John  Barleycorn" admits whiskey still has a strong  grip on, him.

The  question is such a serious one that it  ought to be discussed without reference to party politics. Wherever  they have gone the Hindus have  caused trouble. Year.s ago they went  to the Mauritius, an island belonging  to England in the Pacific ocean, and,  rightly or wrongly, contrived, to  quarrel with the local authorities to  such an extent that no fewer than  five Royal Commisions had %o be  appointed in order to get at the 'truth.  In the end it -was deemed advisable  to prevent any more of them from going to the Mauritius.  t     -' ���������  The recent occurrences in South  Africa show once more how hard it  is to deal with them when once they  effect a lodgment in a new country.  Without doubt they have grievances  there, but their manner of seeking  redress is, to say the least, unfortunate. Their main argument is that  they are British subjects, but this  does not do away with the fact that  they are not adapted to live in peace  and- harmony with British subjects  of the white race. Their threat that  if they are not allowed thejr own  way they will stir up a mutiny,, in  British' India "like that of 1857 is poor  policy and has been Inade so often  that no attention is now paid to it in  South Africa������dr anywhere else.-  Their leaders ' must' know quite  well "that there is "no place for them  in Canada. It is now 400. years since  the first cargo of African slaves was  landed on one of the West India islands. ' The " Spaniards had tried to  enslave the Indians of Hayti, butrthe  red men perished in thousands until  at length a kind hearted Dominican  monk, filled with pity for the dying  race, rose up in its defence and proposed substituting negroes, who were  physically capable of /enduring the  work. In response to his request 50  negroes were sent to Hayti by the  King of Spain. A century later African slaves were landed on the mainland of what is now the United States  and we know what a fearful problem  was created during the long years  when slavery was a recognized institution in the South!  One, may have the greatest 'respect;  for the Hindus, as members of trie'  human, family, and yet object strenuously to their coming to British Columbia, even in small bodies, to start  a similar problem here. The^present  Government has so amended the regulations put jn force by the Laurier  administration that henceforth it  will be impossible for any considerable number of them to make a home  there. We in Canada are masters in  our own house, and our first duty is  to maintain the high standard of our  civilization against Asiatics, whether  they hail from India, China or Japan.  This is not a policy of selfishness but  purely one of self preservation.  Meanwhile the Liberals are describing, probably with a good deal  of exaggeration, the conditions of  white labor in Canada, telling us  that there are 100,000 men out of work  in the Dominion, and suggesting that  if they had remained in power thejr  could have prevented such a sate of  things by simply reducing the tariff.  Yet when they' were in office between by their wild eyed allies in the West,  News from the Broken Hill mine is very encouraging. The ore encountered in the tunnels  gains in values as the work progresses. Active  developments are under - way for this spring.  The trail is now being cleared and repaired.  A ton of provisions sent in, and work will be resumed at once on a more extensive scale than  ever. There is 90 feet of ore in sight���������not dykes  of semi-mineralized rock interlaced with ore  veins���������but 90 feet of solid ore���������increasing in value  with depth.
