 11.-  M7l������kstx  V^be Westerfl Cal|  >#  ;������^" ������;  Published in the Interests of Greater Vancouver and the Western People  VOLUME VI.  VANCOUVER, British Columbia, MAY 29, 1914  5 Cents. Per Copy'  No. 3  Awful Disaster to Empress of Ireland this Morning  algary is O&Mad���������Eighty-Nine Corporations Formed in One Week with a Capitalization of $ISOjm,N0  he Seco^t Narrows Bridge Contract Must Be Kept at Home  SOOTH VANCOUVER  THE NEW ADMINISTRATION  Barely two weeks since election and already  lere is a difference throughout the municipality.  Additional men at work on Main street.- Pro-  Ected paving of Victoria road from the Kings-  fay to Wilson, the B. C. E. R. R. having proposed  put down double tracks on that distance this  sar. Also the pavinijg of Bodwell road from  tain to Fraser.;  Now; comes the  announcement from H. H-  Sevens, M. P., of the government grant of $10,-  )0 for wharves on North Arm, an echo of Reeve  ^err's labours in last year's council.  Just where and how this money will be spent  not yet definite, but the idea is abroad to make  many landing stages at street ends as possible.  Ierr street has already an embryo wharf, and a  iali expenditure would make it quite service-  Ible.   Kerr street fishing station has long been a  lort of call and was at one time the only avenue  |f entry to South Vancouver from the river.   Vic.  jria drive   presents   another good location for  fharf, and a landing there will be much ap-'  Ireciated.   Fraser avenue has already the bunker  rharf, but Bridge streetVshould be opened and a  fharf placed there.   Main street Is opened only  the B;C.E. RR. tracks, and here is an excel-  pnt opportunity for civic enterprise.    A river  *rk, boat house and bath house would greatly  id to the charm of residence in the South west-  ha part of ihe municipality.   Indeed the Western  ]all hopes soonV, to; see the day when Burnaby,  auth Vancouver, Point Grey and Richmond will  J.ch have their rpwi^Ve|^D an(^ vje jn friendly  fvalry with the sculls.    The Fraser- river be-  i^een Kerr and Boundary presents the finest  Ule stretch in the world, and should send forth a  ujampion ere long to uphold our fair name in the  jwipg contests of the world.  A better feeling pervades the municipality,  lid it is everywhere evident that the bitter dis-  pnsions of the last 12 months are dying down.  The Western Call has fought hard with this  id in view. It faced an unscrupulous political  pemy, and beat him at his own game. We did  it expect to get_ off without some knocks, and  wish to say emphatically that we count it an  inor to be abused by Mr. Gold or any of his  rmpathisers.     ;\  As regards the allegations of the Chinook, we  iye-Reeve Kerr's own assurance of their falsity  regards himself-   And that is enough.   If any  |ie else is4ryijag4o-kindle a fire in-the rear we  resent our compliments and bid them go to it.  ���������  As for the Greater Vancouver Pothook, its  liews of men and,measures, change with such  laleidoscopic rapidity that we can hardly keep  |P with this chaser after the Pork barrel.   Both  set in the public trough and snout up to the eyes  municipal patronage it is hard to see straight.  FIRST FREIGHT THROUGH CANAL  New York, May 27.���������The steamer Colon which  forived today from Cristobal, brought the first  height that came through the Panama canal. The  \rgo consisted of 21,000 sacks of sugar, and was  [wed through the canal on barges. It is the first  Irgo to pay through freight.  [ONEV BEING INVESTED  BY MILLIONS NOW  Calgary, May 27.���������The last sign of the finane-  stringency seems to have disappeared from  lgary.  The first day of the' strike money came in  .usands, then in ten of thousands, later in  Lndreds of thousands, and now they say in mil-  _ns,  Anyhow, this is definite from 3 p. m. to 11  m., the Herron interests took in $240,000 ih  [td cash.  The question    asked    on    every   hand    is:  ^here is all the money coming from?"  An answer to the question in a large degree  [n be found at the Canaidan Pacific telegraph of-  le, where hundreds of telegraphed money or-  krs are being received and sent to the local  .okers.    The Calgary citizens have been "dig-  up" nobly, but the outside money that is  fining in is beginning   to stack; up _ in equal  lount to the local money-   Capitalists--from Ed-  jnton, Medicine Hat, Redclif^^ogmK', VjMoose  !tw, Vancouver, Spokane, Seattle^jWimi^wg, and  lerican and Canadian capitalirt������" ������l*om iali seems are arriving each day. :|^v-V;-^>  NOTICE  Our issue of next week wHlspresent  splendid picture of Vancouver's sky-  Ine and harbour.

'���������\.--:  Special Telegram from Ottawa  Ottawa, Way 29  The Western Call, Vancouver:  Pugsley suddenly returned to Ottawa, and immediately assumed leadership of the opposition in the C. N. R. debate in spite of the presence of Sir Wilfrid and of his declaration that he  agreed with the principle of the Government's proposals but only differed with the details. Pugsley, however, moved an amendment which would.throw the railway into liquidation and destroy  all the safeguards which the Government has provided. He proposes to take only ten millions of  dollars' worth of stock and put it in escrow with an option to the government to purchase the  same at par. The government proposals take forty millions of dollars' worth of stock outright  now. Frank Oliver claims that the B- 0. section should not have been built and proposes an  amendment that the freight rates west of theGreat Lakes shall be fixed according to cost of  operation evidently intending to penalize the Mountain section in favor of the Prairie. The Liberals are badly divided and the government resolutions have passed through a most bitter cross  fire of criticism successfully under the sole direction of that brilliant young statesman Hon. Arthur  Meighaq. Pugsley was utterly routed in his attacks on the Solicitor General and Meighan comes  out of the ordeal with colors flying and the most popular man of the hour.  H. H. STEVENS.  Awful Disaster on St. Lawrence River  Quebec, May 29.���������A report received early this  morning states that the Canadian Pacific Steamship Empress of Ireland and the German steamship Storstad collided off Father Point at about  2:30, and both steamers immediately sank, carrying almost all their passengers to a watery grave-  The Empress of Ireland had a passenger list of  1,500, almost all of whom were lost.  The, latest reports give the total, loss at 1,008.  Among the pasesngers on the Empress of Ireland were the following from British Columbia:  Mr. J. R. Abercrombie, Vancouver; Miss C. A.  Cay, Golden; Mr. C. B. Lyon, Vancouver; Mr. C.  Malloch, Larde; Mrs. D. T- Haiety, Vancouver.  Staff Captain White, of the Salvation Army,  Vancouver, stated early this morning that he had  booked through the passages for local Army Officers en route to the Congress at London, and that  as far as he could recollect the Vancouver people  on board the Empress were: Major Nettie Sim-  coe, Mrs. George Cook, Sergt.-Major of No. 1,  Mr. Thomas Clark, Mrs. Clark, his mother, Miss  Violet Vier, Eburne; Mrs. Graton, Pine or Bruce  street; Mrs. Warne, Burnaby; Mrs. Davis, Nineteenth avenue east; Mrs. Eva Duffy, Richards  street; Ensign Oliver Mardell, Mrs. Harry Ax-  ton, Deputy Bandmaster Wakefield-  A later dispatch states that the total number of  missing is 954.  THE BRIDGE CONTRACT  MADF   IN V-:  B.CB  Considerable interest has been aroused lately  in regard to the letting of the contract for the  bridge over the Second narrows, and statements  made to the effect that no local firms were able  to do this work and vice versa, and it seems an  opportune time to let our readers *know the position of matters-  In the first place, the Burrard Inlet Bridge  and Tunnel Company called for tenders for this  bridge, and have received tenders from the Canadian Bridge Company, the   Dominion   Bridge.  Company and C. A. P. Turner.   The bridge consists of sub-structure and super-structure, and all  three tenders have been given for the superstructure, subject to certain firms getting the  work of the sub-structure.. The contract for substructure is not a particularly vital one, as this  work, no matter who gets it, must be done in  British Columbia, but the question of super-structure is very important.    The Canadian Bridge  Company and the Dominion Bridge Company have  their works in the far East, where the fabrication  of the steel for this bridge would be done, but C.  A. P. Turner has tendered, with two Vancouver  shops to do the fabrication here.    The Manufacturers' Association, the Board of Trade and  other associations desirous of seeing that  the  work be  done locally, if possible, investigated  the claims of the local firms as to their ability to  fabricate this steel, and have thoroughly satisfied themselves that either of the two local firms  could do the work, and that when conjoined, there  is absolutely no question of their ability.   In fact,  one of the local shops has turned out during the  year just past, a considderably larger tonnage  than that involved in the Second narrows bridge,  and the greater part of it was bridge work of a  character just as difficult of fabrication, and in  the local shops at present there are in course of  construction girders longer and heavier than any  individual members in this bridge.  Another point to look at is the fact that the  money for the construction of this bridge is given  by the people of British Columbia, and if at all  (Continued on Paflt 4)  AWEIITJIJIII^PIISITWII  At the present time it is interesting to revert  back to the article published in our issue of 20th  March, entitled "Latest News from Alberta Oil  Fields," and to observe how the prognostications  made therein have been realised. At the present  time it may be helpful to the readers of the Western Call who are inclined to interest themselves  in the development of what is undoubtedly a situation pregnant with tremendous possibilities to  endeavor to review in a conservative manner the  present position form tlie standpoint of one who  has studied the matter for years. In the first  place in view of the "blatant" advertising which ,  js going on, with the evidences on every hand of  over capitalization; with the '' wild-catter " abroad  with "shrieks and yells;" with the evidences^of  promoters unloading their promotion stock without any regard to the interests they are supposed  to represent, and as far as the innocent public are  concerned with reprehensible results for the future, it behooves all thinking men to consider  the situation with the greatest care, and to treat  the situation as it is at the moment with the greatest conservatism. As Mr. Cunningham Craig indicated in his speech to the Royal Colonial Institute if only as much as 1 per cent- of the land  taken upon prospecting licenses proves to be profitably productive (which yet remains to be  proven) Canada will own one of the world's  greatest oil fields, an asset to the Dominion and  the Empire of enormous value. Another factor  which should not ���������be overlooked at the present  time is that oil drilling is an exceedingly slow and  protracted business, taking years, as in the case  of the Dingman well to bring to a successful issue, and for this reason the present "spate" of  issues being brought out with such feverish haste  can only cause the future to be rgarded with the  greatest misgiving when the.present craze like ail  other crazes have come to their inevitable end.  Undoubtedly favourable  as the situation  is  at Calgary at the present time, it must not be for-  (Contlnued on pag* *4)  _\  ���������-$Sri.: THE WESTERN  CALL  <y -Vy<" ;,;���������:.' <;������������������.-,   ���������-,v> ;;VV  Friday May 29, 1914  '������$��������� 4$^^MS^4^^^^^*^4*^^4^M$^^^I-^^^^^*^'a ���������S*4S**^*^*^*S*~*S**^'^*^*^^^*4$**S**$**S^*^^**$#*^*S#^$* *$^*$**S*^* *$* *^*$**S* *S**$**S* ���������������$������������^*������$������������$������*$������������{*^������'*������*������^*������$*������$<* *^������������^������s*������>2������^<>������^������������$*������^* *\  Mragpf glimpses of Vancouver  ��������� iv    ������������������: _        _        a        '��������� mi T    '   .

You might easily  take the wrong thing and do  you no good.  Then again we make our own  prep's in the store and exercise  far more care than average patent medicine receives, which is  made in large factories, in large  quantities and made only to sell.

At the corresponding date last year  the- percentages reported of fall  wheat killed during the winter of  1912-13 were for Ontario 18 per cent,  and for Alberta 43 per cent, so that  whilst the winter killing of wheat in  Ontario, is this year slightly more  than it was last year in Alberta it is  very considerably, less, 'this favourable result being attributable to the  mild winter in the West. The total  area estimated to be sown. to fall  wheat, including besides Ontario and  Alberta, 3,000 acres in Manitoba, 78,-  000 acres in Saskatchewan and 2,700  acres in British Columbia, was 1,-  006,706, now reduced by winter killing  in Ontario and Alberta to 838,700  acres.  The condition of fall wheat on May  6 was in Ontario returned as 81.3  per'cent., and in Alberta as 8/.3 per  cent, of a standard representing the  promise' of a full crop, the percentages on April 30, 1913, being 83.4 per  cent, in Ontario, and 76 per cent, in  Alberta. 1'or all Canada, the condition of fall wheat on May 6 this year  was 83 per cent, of the standard, or  103 per cent, of the average condition of the past five years represented by 100. on April 30, 1913, the  corresponding. ligures'of condition of  fall wneat for all' Canada were" 82 per  cent, of a stainda'rd or 101 per cent, of  the average condition of tlie previous  four years: The condition of the  fall yvheat crop, this year is, in fact,  superior to tnat of any year since  19i0, when the record wias over 89  per cent, of the standard.    >,'  Upon the whole, spring seeding was  well advanced except in the Maritime  provinces, where the spring this year  is reported as abnormally late, and in  yuebec; where not more than from  3 to 5: per cent, of spring seeding was  reported to have been done by May  6. In Ontario at this date about 24  per cent, of wheat, 43 per cent, of  oats and 41 per cent, of barley had  been got in, and 40 per. cent, of the  total seeding was reported ��������� as completed oh May 6 as against the same  proportion last year on April 30. In  Manitoba 57, in Saskatchewan 79,  and in; Alberta 88 per cent, of the  spring wheat ,crop was reported as"  seeded by May 6, these proportions  comparing favourably wih the progress reported last year on April 30.  For the five provinces Of Quebec,  Ontario/ Manitoba, Saskatchewan and  Alberta, the proportion of seeding reported as effected on May 6 was  about 48 per cent^for wheat,, ,23^per  cent, for oats, 16 per cent, for barley  and 37 per cent, for all crops.  About 14 per cent, of the area in hay  and" clover meadows is reported as  winter killed as compared with ,22 per  cent, last year. The average condition of these crops on May 6 was 86.7  per cent, as compared with 89.6 per  cent, last year and 74.6 in 1912.  The condition of the live stock remains generally satisfactory, being reported for all Canada as over 90 per  cent, of a standard, representing a  healthy, and thrifty state.  A. t.

CALGARY Oil MAD  Calgary, May 26.���������Last week was perhaps the  busiest six days that the deputy provincial secretary's offices; have ever experienced. Applica-'  tions for incorporation flooded the place and the  clerks were kept on the jump. Eighty-nine companies, totalling capitalization of possibly one  hundred and fifty million dollars, sent in papers.  Despite the fact that yesterday was a holiday,  there was little or no abatement in the oil stock  business. Large numbers of shares were bought  and sold and prices for stock of the leading companies well maintained. There are fifty-seven  companies operating in this city controlling an aggregate of 378,394 acres. Their capitalization is  $46,386,000, and the shares number 62,022,750.  The par value of the shares of forty-three of the  companies is $1; of six others $10, and of one,  $1,000. The latter company has issued only 250  shares.  Dr. T. O- Bosworth, the well known British  geologist, visited the Dingman well and expressed  himself delighted with what he he Had seen.  Among other things, the geologist said:  "None can now doubt that we are justified in  hoping that oil in paying quantities can be' found  in Western Canada.  "It seems as though the predictions of even the ,  most optimistic may be realized, in which case it  must be agreed by all, both oil men and the general public* that-.-great, credit \������ dne to the judgment of Cunningham Craig, who took' the risk  of publicly stating that he believed there was almost a possibility'of striking oil in the Calgary  field, and whose utterance did much to encourage  the enterprising men who have risked money in  the test. ; -   .     i _ j " -'  '  "Remarkable wjjjs thev perspicacity of Mr.  Dingman and those associated with him who  drilled the first well, and who have carried out  what they had set about so effectively and with  such encouraging re_ults���������it is not often that  those who undertake the first well in a new district either drill so successfully or find the right  place. ��������� ���������:'���������]' ���������:"���������       V  "The oil is certainly the most remarkable that  has been found, and it is of such a rare quality  that when it was first encountered last fall, oil  men_would:ihakd^yrdare^r���������pril iJLas_anything but���������  a filtrate from some heavier body. The amount  that has been now obtained must make us prepared for the possibility of something new."  ATM* BUSWBSS SUCTION PE8TOOYJ5D  Atlin, May 26.-���������The business section of the  town is a mass of ruins. At ah early hour Sunday morning fire broke out in the Kershaw hotel  and spread with alarming rapidity, so quickly indeed that there was little or no time for the proprietor or any of the guests to save any of their  belongings- Every effort was made to get the  outbreak under control, but without avail, and a  high wind soon fanned the flames to adjacent  buildings.   THE BRIDGE CONTRACT  (Continued from Page  1) '���������  possible, same should be spent in British Columbia, and allow the people to have the benefit of  their own money. '-r  Owing to the slump in building operations, the  two steel construction plants already mentioned,  instead of employing two to three hundred men,  are working with twenty to thirty men on ea;h  pay roll, and have practically no work in sight;  whereas, if the local tender is accepted, there will  be work for 400 men from fifteen to eighteen  months, and the pay roll of those men will be spent  in Vancouver-  In addition to the fabrication there is a large  amount of castings, electrical and mechanical  equipment, etc., which,will be furnished by local  companies, and which will mean a general impetus to the metal work business in this city. If,  the contract is awarded to an Eastern firm, then  the fabrication of this steel, castings, etc., will be  made in the East, and British Columbia will get  no benefit. The claim is also made by local concerns that their tender is considerably less than  any of the eastern tenderers, and if the Bridge  and Tunnel Company have satisfied themselves  that the claims of the local men, as to ability and  financial standing, are well founded, it would  seemingly have no other alternative than to accept the local tender.  The Burrard Inlet Bridge and Tunnel Company having the disbursement of local money  should make every effort to have this work done  locally, and if there are any obstacles, assist the  local men in clearing same, as the mere fact of  this bridge being constructed and built in .British Columbia means a great deal to the industry of  the Province. There will be many bridges in future required in this Province, and there., is no  reason why any of them should be fabricated outside.  Some few years ago the citizens of Seattle were  -faced with a situation where the local tender for  the construction of the U. S. battleship Nebraska  was $140,000 higher than the cost in Eastern  navy yards, and a fund was opened, and within  a few days the difference in cost was subscribed  by citizens in order to keep the work locally.  Everything being so favorable, it is certain  the Bridge Comapny will patronize home industries, and we feel certain we will be able to publish shortly that the local tenderers have been  successful in obtaining this contract.  LOCAL STEEL CONCERN  GETS B. O. E. R. BRIDGE  In keeping with its well known policy of supporting British Columbia institutions, the B. C.  Electric Railway Company yesterday awarded  a contract for the construction of a steel bridge  aeross False Creek at Kitsilano to John Coijgh-  lan & Sons- "Work is to be commenced at, ofjjce,  and pressed to a speedy completion. The-structure will replace tbe , present timber , railroad  bridge extending from the Eburne station to..the  Indian reserve. .>       *   '  SJG RENTAL PAID-  Calgary, May 27.���������Enormous ' rentals have  been paid for space by.tjhe oil brokers in Calgary, but the record has been reached by the Red-  cliff brokers, who have secured the site just back  of the Alberta hotel. A.small brick and tile edi-'  fiee has been reared in a few hours, and even before the walls were completed, the brokers were  at work in the place. They are paying a rental of  $40 a day, which, when carried out to a yearly  income, means $14,600. *.,  TO ALLOW BEAR BUNTING  Order-in-GouuciJ Now Being Prtpawd to Open  Season on April X.  Since the passage of the new Game Act, which  brings all furbearing animals under the protection of the law except when open seasons are proclaimed, many residents of the province have  written in wanting to know how this will affect  the usual spring hunting for bear. The chief  game warden has authorized the press to  state that while the killing of bear for sport is  prohibited by the act, that an order-in-council  will be made in time to allow of bear hunting  each spring. The season will probably be opened  each year on April 1. An order-in-council is now  in preparation and an announcement of its pas-  sage will soon be made.   ALBERTA OIL POSITION  (Continued from page 1)  gotten that in the opinion of those competent-to  judge the "Key" of that whole situation lies up  at the outcropping of the formation in the vi- ;  cinity of Fort McKay, where undoubtedly a big oil  field has been proven up, and where the Kootenay  formation which is the most ideal formation.for  oil found anywhere comes to the surface, and in  the following of that formation back the formation which undoubtedly underlies that whole  country this discovery is of tremendous economic .  value. For anyone who is desirous of interesting  themselves in the present situation and to benefit from what is coming no mistake can be made  in investigating the position as it is up there.  Then it does not take much of a prophet to make  the statement that undoubtedly Edmonton will  soon become the centre of a very marked develops  mentj based on the fact that the actual showings  as revealed in the American-Canadian well Which  has reached a depth of 3,350 feet has shown much  more favorable indications than was found at Calgary before the real and serious development took  place there, with such satisfactory results. It is  the opinion of those in a position to know that if  the casing in this well were pulled the hole would  be full of oil. A new well is being sunk 200 fetf,  distant from No. 1, and it is understood it is now  down to a depth of 600 feet. The following information was cabled by Hon. W. J. Roche. M. P.,  Minister of the Interior, at Ottawa, to the secretary of the Canadian office in London:  "German capitalists have subscribed $100,000  to sink an oil well 5000 feet deep near Morinville,  Alberta."  This money undoubtedly would never have,  been subscribed unless the investigation of the  1 situation had been made showed these capitalists  that the expendtture of this money were justified.  A GENEROUS OFFER TO HELP  UNEMPLOYED OF VANCOUVER  Warning! Important!  RABIES  This disease has made its appearance amongst  the dogs of the Cowichan District. Two suspicious'cases also occurred some months ago at Mission. The disease has appeared in Oregon, and  possibly in the State bf Washington as well.  As the period of incubation of Rabies is prolonged, the extent of the infection is not yet aP\  parent, so it is incumbent upon all to be on the  look out for further outbreaks-  The Dominion Veterinary Department is  handling'this so far as animals are concerned, but  I wish to be informed as to any suspicious cases  which may appear.  This Department is prepared at any time to'  forward   complete   treatment for  hydrophobia,  which, as you know, must be administered to the  person as soon as possible after being bitten,  which is some weeks before symptoms develop.  This treatment can be administered- by the  local practitioner.  WALTER BAPTY, M.D.,  Provincial Boatd- of Health  Victoria, April 23.        -f  Acting Secretary,  Editor Western Call:��������� V  In the early spring Ltook the liberty of addressing you pleading for work Vfor the unemployed.  Will your readers listen once more, seeing that the  season is open, and offers every inducement for  beautifying the gardens.   V v  Many kind hearted people did 'phone the Salvation Army (Seymour 259), and men were sent  to thei rhouses to put their garden in order, for a  small sum Of money, and all those who asked for  flower seeds were supplied free. ;;V V V  Now, why not ring up Seymour 259, and they  will send you a man to trim your lawns> weed your  gardens, and clear up the basement,_ or do any odd  work you may wish done. Pay twenty-five cents  per hour, or get it done for so much-  Now, for my part, I will send free to every  person who gives three full days employment to  the men supplied by the Army a crate of fresh  fruit from our ranch at Yale.. The cherries make  your mouth water. Captl W. Kerr, the captain in  charge of the Salvation Army Employment Bureau, will give you a note, certifying the fact that  you have given the employment. Send this to me.  I am not doing this pour passer le temps, and,  therefore, must ask you to send me very plainly  your exact and full address; write the number  both in figures and words. Ring up the express  company,,and ask them the charges.for bringing(  the fruit from Yale. Two crates travel at less rate  than one, therefore get others to join you.  We, are planting potatoes today. It may be  late to do this in Vancouver, but in any case it I  will not be necessary to do as the man in the dry]  belt is said to have done, Viz.: Planted onions  between the rows, so that the eyes of the potatoes]  should be made to water, and thus save irrigating.!

PAVING JpiWT  The quesion &f letting the Bodwell  road pavement will be settled on  Monday. Before he council arrive at  a decision we would urge upon them  the necessity of carefully considering  the merits of the- various pavements  tendered for and at .the same time to  safeguard the interests of the working men of South Vancouver in letting these contracts. We have had  some experinece already: _ of pavement laying in > Sbuh Vancouver,  namely that stretch. along, the Kings-  way. We think' by "the Bethulithic  people. This'is a piece of workmanship which is a credit to our municipality. One of the most delightful  drives' we have ever had has been  over this stretch of roadway. We  hope the council will,give these people a show again. Whilst we all  would desire to see a local industry  get the order yet, undoubtedly the interests of the taxpayer must always  be the first consideration, and that  only can be done by having the best  road laid.  The Dominion Greosbting Company certainly ought to- be encouraged, but we cannot and will not  urge upon the council to give them  a preference. Bithulithic has given  satisfaction in Point Grey, Burnaby  an dthe city. It has stood the test  of years. As for Granitoid, after the  late experience South Vancouver people will hardly look with favor on  any proposition put up at present by  this company.  There Is another 'pavement, made  by a South Vancouver firm, but it is  urged against it that it has not had  the test put to it that the other pavements have. Donald. Burgess is the  head of the concern, and he is very  optimistic as to the merits of the  pavement, laid down by his company.  We do not want to pass an opinion as"  to the merits o.f. any individual concern, but would again urge the council to.be guided by the past records  of the endurance of the different  pavements tendered for. If Bithulithic pavement has given the satisfaction that it "is'said-in .Point Grey  and-Burnaby then give it. a further  trial in South Vancouver if the price  is right. .-    -..'.".  The experience pf the letting of  the last paving contract will make  the present council act warily in  coming to a decision..

Vancouver, the Queen of the West!  THE PAGEANT IDEA.  This, the first "Pageant of Vancouver," will be, naturally in parts,  somewhat crude as first attempts  usually are. In years to come "The  Pageant Idea" will be better carried  out.  ..- The "Pageant of Vancouver,"  evolved from a "Masque," which inaugurated a campaign against the  unloveliness of modern city life, a  campaign still going on and in which  "The City Beautiful Association,"  "The Civic Centre," "The B. C. Society of Art," and the Vancouver  Horticultural Association and other  organizations are doing splendid service. This Pageant will be more than  a spectacle���������it will be a prophecy.  - The time will come for Vancouver  when folk songs of our forefathers  shall ring out blithely on the spring  air. The twinkling feet of dancers on  the grass shall catch something of the  rhythm of Shakespeare's verse and  the music of the spheres. "The Man  With the Hoe" will do his task, the  daring builder of towering skyscraper will toirat the risk of life, the  writer will bend over his desk, the  clerk serve in the store, but they will  not work without joy, without hope.  The discipline of the teuton, the  primitive vigor of the Slave, the' enterprise of the Scandinavian, the mystic reverence of the Oriental will color  the gray steady work-a-day life of  the Briton. (What about the Celt?)  ���������Ed.  Above all the variant notes of this  Cosmopolitan city will be heard one  song calling- for a higher humanity,  for joy of life, for an expression of  that nature which makes the whole  world kin.  This co-operation for romance,  color, music, joy of life, is the idea  behind the Pageant. There shall be  romance, color, joy and hope in this  gray work-a-day world "If it be not  now, yet it will come," the workers  around the temple can wait.  The committee who have taken the  humor to have a "Grand Pageant of  Vancouver"  in  this    city    may    be  . trusted  to  emulate' the  learned old  Elizabethan   bricklayer  in   his   thoroughness.    It may be  said���������without  offense���������of the majority of the "Add  Men" that, like witty Ben, they have  "but  little   Latin   and   less   Greek,"  but  they  have  a  vocabulary  which  even the author of "Every Man in His  Humor" would have envied, and as to  .persistence���������well there is not a business man in the city who will not testify that they "possess that.  Pageant of^Vancouver.  The subject would inspire a body  of men far less imaginative than those  who have taken the subject in hand.  .Think of it���������as a picture. See the  splendid picturesque'ness of the figures in the composition, the wealth  of color in the costumes and the  glorious trees and snow capped  mountains as a background.  The pageant maker will be true to  historical data; he will, to use a theatrical term, preserve the unities, but  he will, without anachronism, see  that the stately figures and beautiful  costumes of the days of Charles II.,  the wonderful dresses of the early  Indians, the wealth of color introduced by the Orientals, the "garb of  old Gaul," worn by the Highlanders,  the costumes and banners of England,  Ireland and Wales���������nay, of peoples  and provinces of all nations���������represented in this wonderful cosmopolitan city, shall "come into the picture.",  All this is arranged, and the parade on June 12th will be a perfect kaleidoscope of form and color.  "The Pageant 'of"Vancouver"-.will.  , deal with the past, the present and the  future.' It will be HISTORICALLY  RETROSPECTIVE, PICTORI-  ALLY DESCRIPTIVE AND HIS-  TORICALY PROPHETIC.  "Caps," if you please, Mr. Printer,  the mind will be impressed through  the. eye���������that is the effect of a pageant.  We.have the history to draw upon.  Although it has been but a small  span of time since the handy sailors  who found themselves on our coast  could cay:  city, where the hum of voices and of  wheels, the rhythm of hammers building towering sky-scrapers is increasing. A grca seaport whose leviathan  argosies from all corners of the world  scramble for dock room. Oh! yes!  we have history, and all made in  about a quarter of a century! So  much for the past, and what of the  present? To the observing eye the  streets of Vancouver are A PAGEANT DAILY.  "Come the four corners of the  world," we cry���������and so all nationalities are represented in our thorough-  lares, every foot of which is an ever-  changing kaleidoscope. "I love to  sit in a crowded street and see the  folk go by." sang a poet who grasped  the fact that moving humanity is.a  panorama full of pathos,( humor, color  and interest "Every day Vancouver",  willbe worth "featuring" in a pageant, for the.-''strangers within our  gates. And the future���������what of  that? There the pageant master  must humbly learn a lesson from such  visionaries as William Blake, whose  poetic eye, in a "fine frenzy rolling,"  saw, a hundred years ago; something  of the ^ destiny of this great continent. William-Morris, too1, can give  us a': Hint is to how, in a pageant, the  athletic forms of our young men, the  buoyant grace of our women, the incomparable beauty of Vancouver  children, can be utilized to typify a  time when busy industries shall give  healthy employment and comfort to  our population; when our environments shall appeal to a sense of  taste, and ��������� physical perfection and  beauty Shall not be the exception but  the rule.  ; "The Pageant of Vancouver" is  being carried out in a way that will  make it a history���������a picture, a poem,  a sermon, an inspiration. It will  make not- only, our patriotic citizens  but our visitors think of Vancouver,  as Byron though't of Athens when he  wrote  Who that beheld that Sun upon thee  set,  Fair Athens  can  thine  evening face  forget?  Not he whose  chart,  nor time,  nor  distance frees,  Spell-bound    within    the    clustering  cyclades"  THE IMPORTANCE OF THE REMOVAL OF WAl<E WRPS AFTER THE BREEDING SEASON  "We are the first���������  Who   ever   burst   into  seas."  these     silent  Eggs which have been fertilized  constitute the greatest proportion of  the inferior stock which, when examined, proves unfit for food It is  not necessary that these shall have remained for a time under a broody  hen, a temperatuere of seventy deg  being, in itself, sufficient to cause the  germ to commence to grow.    If the  h___������,Jsjcwsta__Ljfe^ ������f  the chick will continue, but if it ceases  or is intrmittent, V putrjf ication at  once sets in and the egg becomes bad.  On the Ipther hand infertile eggs  which are free from the active germ  cell, do not, .under ordinary conditions, deteriorate seriously.  Few farmers seem to realize, these  facts, and consequently very few make  any effort to insure infertility. The  impression prevails among many that  the presence of the male bird in the  flock is essential to the production  of a maxibum number of eggs. This  assumption has been proven, time  and time again, to be absolutely without foundation.  Farmers and others selling eggs for  market are recommended to kill off  or dispose of the male birds after the  breeding season. As a result of their  remaining with the flock after June  1st, Canadian farmers lose each year  at least a million dollars, through the  presence of partially incubated eggs  in the produce which is marketed.  The fact that the best trade in many  cities in Canada now offers he premium of from one to five cents per  dozen, for non-fertilized eggs, suggests an additional financial consideration which but few can. afford to  overlook.

Admission, a book  either old or new, or collection for pro-  curlngsame.      ^  In my advertisement of Sunday I stated that "VANCOUVER RESPONDS TO THE OIL  EXCITEMENT." My comment appears to be extremely mild as the hundreds of inquiries  prove. I am now convinced that the people of VANCOUVER appreciate a GENUINE OIL  PROPOSITION. I  TODAY I will receive deposits for stock of '  Tlie National Oil & flas Company  At the tow Price of 25 Cents Each, par value One Dollar  Only a small block of stock at this price. I  The officers and directors of THE NATIONAL OIL & GAS COMPANY are:  President���������A. F. Calhoun, Rogers Building, Vancouver.  1st Vice-President���������J. W. Prank, Los Angeles, Calif. ���������  2nd Vice-President���������D. MacLurg, Dominion Building, Vancouver.  Treasurer���������L. L. Mills, Empress Hotel, Vancouver.  Secretary���������J.  A.  Folle,  Ferndale, Washington.  ^ Investigate their standing and then, if you have faith in OIL, call and see me before the  present price is advanced or the stock entirely withdrawn from the market.  10,000 shares are offered at this price.   First come first served.  REMEMBER that the well is now down 1742 feet.  REMEMBER that the well is within 50 miles of VANCOUVER and only 300 yards froni  the railroad station. ; t  REMEMBER that this is the first public offering bf stock in this Company in Vancouver.  REMEMBER that the man who located this well has never made a mistake: He says we  will find the oil, and the strata we are going through is proving him'right.  REMEMBER that I am under contract to withdraw the stock of the Company from the  market entirely the very moment^OIL is STRUCK.  REMEMBER that the Company has engaged as driller Mr. G. S. Mendenhall, who is  recognized as one of the best expert drillers that ever operated in the great California oil  fields.
