J. M. Ritchie, in the Sunday; morning Advertiser, talks some good sense, and some remarkable  t[nonsense.   lie says "Religion is a luxury, and  J should be taxed."   First, it is not a luxury, but  fa necessity as surely as are clothes.  M   Religion should not be ,taxed either, but sq long  if as there are buildings in cities and other sj>laees  fvwhere they cover a piece of this taxable earth,  [fthe earth under these churches should be taxed  t-ih common, with earth built upon by groceries,  'saw-mills, warehouses, hotels and banks.  Banks, warehouses aid groceries are necessities,  'just as is religion.   But we do not tax them because they are a luxury or a necessity. They are.  If taxed as are theatre grounds, simply because they  |*re within the municipal limits; not because they  fire holding above them theatrical,������* other build-  f|ngs,- which are looksd upon as luxuriesV  ill; We do not, tax the ground under our public  ^schools, jails and- xthe City Hall.     This results  If from the fact that they belong to the municipal  f corporation.   It would be foolish and a waste of  pime to tax them,.and pay the money over by  the corporation to tbe corporation.  But we d6 and propose to continue to tax thp  ���������ground under churches and similar institutions,  since they belong to private parties for the good,  ^convenience and pleasure of private parties.  From the standpoint of the public, the Orange  Hall, the Methodist Church buildings, the Roman  Catholic church buildings, nunneries and ^aimilar  institutions are purely, private concerns, as are  the Labor Temple, the Salvation Army Barracks,  /the halls rented for the use of the Christian Scien-  ItistSj the people who term themselves " Christians  "Gathering to the^Honaf of the I������ord,'? Socialists  1b& Suffragettes.,  All the grounds occupied by  ^ these private peoples and .organizations must be  taxed.   Mr. Ritchie talks nonsense either wilfully  or ignorantlywhen hesaystheOrangemen are  opposing church exemption because they are op-  >posed to the Roman Catholic churoh;The^Orange-  ^men oppose all churches being exempted, because  ���������4they object to^accept or   grant   special   favors  "either for themselves or to others.   This they do  on the |rottttft that it is bad piifrfle economy;~im?-  fair and therefore immoral, for every act of public injustice, in the end, is immoral.    The Orangemen have no quarrel .withthe Roman Catholic, Anglican Catholic, Presbyterian Catholic,  Methodist Catholic, Salvation Army Catholics, or  Socialist Catholic organizations.   But they do -object to wake the whole public pay for the peculiarities and notions, religions or otherwise, of tbe  above named or similar people.  ������fr. Ritchie speaks ol killing off " all forms of  superstition, ana all forms of religions, and looks  to the time when "pure and undiluted rationalism  it the only criterion of conscience." He must be  very ignorant and foolish to use such language.  He speaks of bringing to earth "once more the  peace and consolation which is sure to come when  all religions are cut off-"  "Once more*'is good, surely! "Once more"  necessarily pre-supposes thst such a state existed  ou earth at some previous time. Mr* Ritchie is  either dishonest or ignorant when he makes such  M statement. There never waa a time in the history of the human family when there was no religion* There never was a time when a nation or  ��������� people, outside of some Uttle insignificant group  of silly men aid women, attempted to live without,,  religion. Why he talks such-nonsense, and at Ihe  same time talks certain good sense, is hard to  fathom. I would judge his foolishness comes from  a bad spirit rather than from ignorance. If so it  is a pity, aa it is evident he has a clear head and  good notions in some important directions.  Now let me tell Mr. Ritchie and the public at  the same time that Orangemen would not only  not interfere with the Roman Catholics in their  religious worship, but they would stand by their  side in^ defending the most sacred principle and  right, viz., that of worshiping God as they please.  Their worship is a matter between them and the  Oreat Father, and no concern of Orangemen. They  hold the same notions of freedom of worship concerning the other religionists, viz., those attached  to Moslemism, Confucianism, Buddhism, Shinto-  ism, Zoroasterism, Judaism, Protestantism and  any other "ism" that might be added to the list.  But when any of the above pass beyond the act  and state of worship, and attempt to enforce upon  others by other than persuasive and educational  means, and especially by the use of the State and  "material means," their peculiar religious tenets,  then the Orangemen are sure to raise strong objections One of the attempts to enforce the aid  of the State, the peculiar views of certain Churchmen, is the attempt to make the whole public pay  for the notions of the few���������that is, to make the  whole pay for the pleasure and prof it of a part.  FALSE GREEK  f  City's Policy���������Citizen's Duty--Wfa Shall We Vot  The question of the disposition of the bed^of False Greek has been a most interesting, one for many years, but this very fact  (years) impels us to urge that  ��������������� .some definite action be taken forthwith. -*?    ���������  Some years ago we urged, through the^qoluilms, that the city should reserve  ��������������� these tide flats for industrial and railroad purposes, leasing them at moderate ren-  ;. tals. Since then, however, conditions have changed very materially. In the first  '. place the citizens have, by the by-law,. June 2f/1910, declared a definite policy���������  ; that of giving away this property under improvement terms. The eity gave the G,  ^ N. Railway the choicest portion of the Greelt^inder that agreement, which provid-  } ed for certain improvements. We opposed it &t the time,, but once the mandate of  f the people was given we submitted gracefully! '$ow we are called upon to consider  ;��������� the disposition of the balanced What is;'to begone with itl" In the first place, we  believe that the policy adopted in, 1910 by |h$^pMMic of Yahcouver should be continued,, xyL, that this portion should be turnledoyer to the Canadian Northern Railway under an agreement of improvement. ^ of the fact  that the action of the citizensin 1910 mgiviii^lhe Great Northern the best portion  of the Cr^k, to a large extent el��������� other more  j profitable use of the property than that of J^ilway tenninals.  ��������� Again,, whereas the Great Northernis:ayforeign road, and only a branch line,  ; the Canadian Northern is a great Canadian ii*anscontinental, which is essentially  * western in its interests, and which we hope will do more than any other road to build  up Vancouver.. i  The duty of every citizen is to consider what is in the best interest of the public  in this matter.  There seems to be no question as to the desirability of having the Canadian  Northern acquire this property, but on what terms? Some urge a lease.j If the title  \ of >the property still remains with the citv and only a lease is given,, then it unques-  ; tionably follows that no taxes will be paid; on the other hand, if a grant is given,  ; the property becomes taxable and would briug a handsome revenue in that way.  ; Again, if leased, the city would have to bear, the cost of extinguishing the riparian  frigMs of the foreshore owners; if granted, the railway compan-fwould have to bear  ��������� that burden, which is no small item. ... ���������    --  ;        Then, further*, is it reasonable for u*s as citizens to give to a branch line (the,  ;; Gv N. R.), and a foreign road, a grant on excepftionably favorable terms, and then  ; impose on a Canadian transcontinental Hue conditions which would handicap them  ;;; in competition with tht* foreign road!  &ome������wtH mjr thereis no sentiment in busi- +  ; isms* ^������?]Pija^jipft.r., few/ iM������y. city or co*mt*?y.*|iii# wpu^ *  eignter which they would deny to their own -eitia-e������sf would soon realize that seuti- ;  ment is sometimes very profitable*  We must build upVamdian traffictmdiudnstvy*.

Tfoen whit shall we do?   What otfcer than enter into a reasonable and sane  agreement with tins company, whereby this "eyesore" will be removed and turned  : into a permanent revenue-producing property and industry, and an encouragement  ;; of adequate transportation.  ;;       This question will he further considered from other standpoints. We urge our  ; readers to study it carefully, as it is of utmost importance, and tbere is always a  danger of only seeing one side of the problem and giving a snap verdict.

This is wrong, and Orangemen do oppose and will  continue to oppose this attempt.  In the main the religion of ihe Roman Catholics  is similar to tbat of Orangemen- They both agree  that ***���������**. j������ a weak, sinful person. He needs help  from bji pivine Father. Sis Father is merciful,  loving and willing to give aid to all who are willing to receive His help. -Jesus Christ is the great  teacher of both Orangemen and Roman Catholics.  The Bible is largely the^only final visible guidance. Of course there are some important dogmatic differences. For instance, the Roman Catholic adds that, in addition to the Bible as a final  and sufficient teacher, aided by the Holy Spirit,  there's one other great and ultimate teacher, viz.,  the Pope, aided by the College of Cardinals, and  certain Church Councils.  Again, the Roman Catholics worship the Virgin  Mary, saints, angels, and some others, while Orangemen worship Ood alone.  But in spite of these differences the Orangemen  have no quarrel with the Roman Catholic Church,  excepting when that church attempts to force others to aceept their creeds and forms of belief and  worship. Then the Orangemen stand for freedom  of individual interpretation of the Bible, and are  determined to oppose any church, or other organization, which would interfere with their personal  freedom and that of the whole community.  To the mind of an Orangeman it is a terrible  and barbarous, a heathenish act, to burn the Protestant Bible. Hence if any church, or Mr. Ritchie,  in his attempt at "killing off all religions,"  should try to burn the Bible, using the 8tate to  aid the work of devastation, then the Orangemen  will have something to say.  Since the Bible is the foundation of all our liberty, and of British greatness, we oppose its usurpation by any and all means. To us it is as bad  as.it would be to a Roman Catholic to see his final  authority on matters of religion burnt. Our Bible  is our standard, hence we would keep it a sacred  thing and stand for its free use by all who desire  to have it for religious consolation. In like manner the Roman Catholics would oppose the burning of the Pope, their highest religions authority.  He is to them exactly what the Bible is to the  Orangemen.  We are quite willing for the worshipers of the  Pope to so continue, and we wish to continue our  worship of Ood and His word. They, on the  other hand, worship God, the Pope, the Virgin  Mary and the saints. Very good! Why should  tbey ootf  Thia is their matter.   It can not be  -wrong to reverence the Mother of Jesus. It can  not be wrong to hold in reverent thought the angels and the really worthy saints who lived and  died to bless the human family.  Orangemen do not quarrel on these grounds  with others, but they are not in a mood to permit  any body of men to force them to worship any of  the above, not even the Almighty Himself. We  shall not worship any being in heaven or on earth  at the dictation of ottfers, even If they attempt to  ntt the ineteriel power of the *tete. And this is  the point at which the Roman Catholic Church  has become a political machine, so far as her secret Jesuitical manipulators have her destinies in  control. Hence there is war between the Political  Roman Catholic Church and the Orangemen, but  not between honest Christian Catholics and  Orangemen.  CORRESPONDENCE.  Dr Spencer Praises CoiMttisiioners.  To the Editor of The Western Call:  Dear Sir,���������The order given to clean out Alexander street vice area, along with all others, is  welcome news. I extend my congratulations to  the Commissioners on their decision to obey the  law, and assure them and the police of hearty  support in their effort.  As it has fallen to my lot to attack this question,  I am the more pleased to say that the interests I  represent will welcome the decision  The report shows, however, that Mr. Leek fears  "scatteration" will take the place of "segregation'' and he scores the various organizations  and individuals who agitated a clean up. The  gentleman does himself no credit thereby, for had  it not been for the combined agitation there ia  no reason to believe such a step would have been  taken. The people referred to by Mr. Leek are  the protectors of morals and unfortunately their  method of protection has necessarily advertised  the Commissioners unfavorably. These organizations and individuals should be thanked and not  blamed.  It will be a pleasure to refer to this decision  with approval on Sunday afternoon at the men's  meeting in the Savoy Theatre, and with others  to join in urging upon the temperance and moral  reform people and the churches, to aid the authorities in wiping out a blot on Vancouver the beautiful.  ** D. SPENCER.  Aug. 29,1912. _  COMMENTS ON LIVING TOPICS  By O. A. 0.  Juvenile Detention ffoines.  Money is never more wisley expended than.  when applied on the modern method of treating;  Juvenile Offenders, The Detention Homes and  Juvenile Courts of today are to be credited with  many lives delivered from certain ruin and dis*  honor. The probationery system works wonders .  'among boys and girls. It is not without value  when used judiciously with adults.  The Vancouver Detention Home dealt with 429  children last year with excellent results.     The-  Pine 'street addition waa much needed and is a/'  sign of the times in the art of miking men.  Mr. Borden's Return.  Premier Borden's visit to England is fit priceless value to Canada. It is essential to the Unity  and Life of the Empire that our great leadera.  should meet with and inhale the spirit of the  mighty statesmen across the sea, men who hold  the destiny of the world's greatest political power  and civilizing force in their hands. In tho/forward move of nations to ultimate ��������� perfection  and union Canada must serve an important  part. To do this effectively this country must"  be intelligently loyal to Britain in every particular, hence the necessity of intimate friendship between the leaders on both sides the sea. Premier  Borden returns doubly qualified for his important  office.  ROYAL VJSIT0R8.  ~ The Duke and Duchess of Connaught will soon  be in our midst. Vancouver is on tip-toe of expectation, v and suitable preparations are being  made to entertain them as loyal Britishers should.  The Duke is most thoroughly democratic and  would be nauseated by too ..elaborate gorgeOus-  ness in display. The geuuine love of the people  without sham manifestations of joy, or silly apfna*  of aneient aristocracy^ will command the respeer  of the royal party. Nothing is more offensive ������o*~  good taste than costly, extravagant dress or parade, on part of the host. Suitable dec^oratioUs and  festivities are.always in order.. ~~ .  Furnish them with ani'ple convenience of seeing the city and give the common people an opportunity to see our guests, and lasting pleasure  and satisfaction will result.  rORWTRt CONVENTION.  The, fourteenth annual convention of the Canadian Forestry Association being held in Victoria  this week, is attended by delegates from every  province in Canada. Able addresses hy eminent  speakers add interest and value to the meeting*  A. C. Flumerfelt presided.  Sir Richard McBride tendered an address of  welcome, which was so apt and hearty that all  visitors felt at home at once and entered upon the  business of the convention with zest. This association has a mission fraught with our young nation's future wealth.   Pfir*r fJfpJ^pcrpfQJT.  That Inspection is improving in the city may  > be true, but a visit to the dairies of Vancouver  ��������� will leave no doubt in the observer's mind 9* to  the need of better facilities for keeping mttk  pure in transition from its fountain to the consumer. If dirt breeds and harbors bscteria then  Vancouver milk is a veritable nursery.of these  pests. Never have we witnessed more carelessness in the handling of milk than in this eity.  There are some exceptions, but the rule remain*  that our dairies are disgustingly unclean. If  patrons made an annual visit to these places they  would demand many changes or abandon the use  of milk altogether. Barns, pails, cans, and milkmen should be faultlessly clean. Health and good  taste alike require it.  ^ji r^y- tiS**^  yyh\^^  ������ 7F,.j.,esT  tfORANKSFlRST OO  WTOEHfM0nhIH0������������  WM OWEN  \i  2837  Phone: Fairoont 447  wm  S3  -   "> >*ttv^,  y-'j/y-. ?-���������  Ass  ? y$W'  !*5J  '<?  ���������"��������� k ' a  ;. - -   ">.iw*?."i|  .'        > '-L-4l'"?t.4S*l THE WESTERN CALL.  ���������04* le'ieieie-i'eie'i ere ie'i������i'������������i<eieiei������t������ tele teie i *ieie<������  Drs.

Applications   for   Assistance   to   Be  Dealt With by Local Committee���������  Many Names to Guarantee  Bond.  South* Vancouver, Sept.. 2,���������Over  twenty-five local business men have  put their signatures to a guarantee  bond of $200 each that will enable  scores of South Vancouver immigrants  from the old country to send for their  families. On the total amount of $5000  guaranteed, banks will lend the Im  perial Home Reunion Association ot  Vancouver $2500, which can be ex  pended immediately by the committee  of the South Vancouver Board of  Trade appointed at a recent meeting,)  to take charge of the reunion work in  this municipality. Thia committee,  composed of Messrs. R. C. Hodgson,  president of the board, J. C. McArthur,  vice-president, and. Lamonde, assistant  secretary, will hereafter receive applications for. financial assistance in. getting wives and families to South Vancouver, according to an announcement  made today by Magistrate McRrthnr,  chairman of the committee and dele*  gate from the Board, of Trade ta the  executive committee of the Vancouver  Reunion Association.v Mr. McArthur.,  who was. the first man to put hia name  on the. guarantee list, statea that he  has hardly met with a single refusal  to the, businesslike appeal, of the organization for fundi, which, probably  need never be paid. The association,  after it has received, its loan from the  banks, secured, by these signatures,  becomes self-sustaining. Appllcanta  for assistance pay back their loans on  the Instalment Ulan. "**tb. interest sufficient to cover that charged by the  banks.  "I was surprised, to see the class of  people who. applied for help from the  Vancouver association," said Mr. M<:  Arthur,, who attended the last meeting  of the Vancouver executive committee.  "They were very respectable, steady  men, with positions paying them between, eighty dollars and $100 a month,  from $30. to $40 of which was sent to  their old country home- The cost of  k*������ptog a family in two places at the  sajae Ume will be saved by the reunion  association in South Vancouver, and In  addition the money which they spend  for their upkeep will build up trade in  Vancouver and thia municipality."  Giving an Instance, Mr. McArthur  told of an applicant at the last meeting  he had attended in the Hoard of Trade  rooms, Vancouver. An Englishman  with a $100-a-month position who sent  $30 a month to his home, bad not seen  his wife or family for five years. The  firm for which he was working promised to build him a home if he brought  bis wife here, and let him have it rent  free. When his people came to South  Vancouver it would mean much to him  personally and would help the municipality by the amount of meney which  would be spent here.  There are many people in similar  circumstances in South Vancouver,  and the committee of three in charge  of this work are quite willing to receive applications which are addressed to the Home Reunion Committee  of the Board of Trade.

Canadian Premier Leavea For Heme  London, August 30.���������The momentous  visit of the' Canadian Ministers came  to a conclusion today wben Premier  and Mrs. Borden and Mr. and Mrs.  Pelletier took their depature from Eus-  ton by special train. They will sail  this evening from Liverpool on board  the Allan liner Virginian. A large  and representative party bade them  hearty farewell, those on the platform  including Lord Strathcona, W. L.

Before their departure the platform  was cleared in order that Premier  Borden and Lord Strathcona might be  photographed.  Premier Borden, in his final message, expressed the highest appreciation of the efforts of those who had  contributed to make Tne visit of the  Canadian Ministers such a happy one.  The question of conditions of naval  defence and Canada's share in it  would be considered by the Cabinet  almost immediately on his return, he  said.  "The most delightful experience I  ever had," was Mrs. Borden's description of her stay in England. "I am  leaving London with a heart full of  gratitrde to the people of your country, aivl especially to the English women suffragists. They are your women  folli, and because of that I have the  kindliest feelin towards them, although I do not approve of their  methods."

It was  vastly appreciated by the boys, both  for Its natural beauty and the fact  tbat tbey encountered Cobb on Monroe avenue. Tyrus, who had met  Brockett some months before ln  Washington, was not only affable, but  anxious to go out of his way to guide  the youngsters round the burg. Solano, like many others who bad never  made the acquaintance of the Georgia  Peach, had always believed bim a  swell-headed, inflated, disagreeable  character, and was amazed to find  him a splendid young, fellow, gentlemanly and entertaining. After Cobb  bad left them the Cuban shook nte  head In a bewildered fashion.  "Finding out my mistake about Ty  Cobb," be explained, "was some jolt  believe ma. m not be surprised to  discover, after that enlightenment,  tbat Baron Zollern Is our dearest  friend and that Mr. Yazimoto would  just die to make us bappy!"  "They don't grow any nicer than  Cobb." said Brockett. "He is pretty  nearly tbe best ever."  Naturally, the messengers went to  see Cobb perform that afternoon,  after securing tickets and berths on  a Chicago train. The great Georgian  was at his best, giving a wonderful  display of his speed and matchless  bitting powers. After seeing him  turn an ordinary single into three  bases by nervy running, the boys left  the ball yard, garrulous as monkeys,  wildly delighted at the doings of Tyrus Cobb, but not forgetting the dangers and demands of tbelr situation.  .Nobody bothered them at the game;  and watchful Individuals, and every  bulky German, every passing Japanese  'or Chinaman, loomed large as a pos-  ' alble emissary of the foe.  |    Marching   majestically   amid   the  throng, and toweling above tbem like  ] Gulliver among the Liliputlans, a gi-  ' (antic negro came up the street. The  black man must bave been seven feet  high, and was gayly costumed In scarlet coat, blue trousers, and silk bat  With either hand be dealt out the advertising cards of some dentist, and  , kept a continual stream of pasteboards,  j flying through the, crowd.   The boys1  , sidestepped to let the giant pass, but!  the   mammoth   negro   checked   his  , course for the fraction of a second  \ and thrust a couple of his cards Into  , Brockett's astonished hands.   Resum->  ( ing his march, he paraded up the  ( atreet, with a mob  ot small boys  Stringing In bis wake, turned a corner,  1 and disappeared with bis attendant'  train. ,  | "Some advertising"agent, that boy,"  laughted Brockett. "Wonder who  bires him, anyhow?"  One of the cards bore tbe name of  tome "dental parlor." Across the  other, In small but clearly written  letters, were these hieroglyphs:  "WR E h TO W Flu B TO HR TC  |S *u Pos TO CUBS." ;  "Instructions at Chicago," Brockett'  translated., "Say���������let's catch that  black man and ask bint where be got'  tbla card."  Tbey hurried to tbe cross-street;  Where tbe negro bad changed Wei  course, but tbe gigantic African was.  nowhere visible.

"  i Solano was on guard, and Brockett  was peacefully dreaming, when the  green curtains were slightly agitated.'  The Cuban stretched himself towards  the edge of the berth and peered  ^downward.

If any-"  lone bad been trying to rummage ln  toe lower berth, he had fled with  ���������'snake-like silence and lightning speed.  iSolano. deciding that he bad been In  error, drew back, and waited out Jxis  ! watch without further incident.  : With the first rays of sunlight, both  boys were astir. _ Slipping down into  the aisle without waiting for the porter's ladder, they looked Into the lower berth.

The Indian Refining Company, which  ia affiliated with various companies  owning oil wells in Borneo, it is announced, will, enter this field to compete with the Standard Oil Company.  Its representatives are now Id Vancouver making arrangements for a  site for a large distributing tank ware-  house in this vicinity.  Finss Will Bt Heavier.  Hereafter all operators of "blind  pigs" will be fined |200 and costs, and  in default of payments of the assessment will be sent to jail tor a period  of three months, according to an announcement made by Magistrate South  In Police Court recently.  The first-person to softer under the  new penalty was Mrs. Angelo Maria,  who pleaded guilty to operating a  "pig." -  Liquor Casts in Casks of Water.  That the .operation of "bUng pigs"  has become a serious menace to the  city, and tbat tbey are fast becoming  hotbeds of conniption and vice, waa  the statement made by Magistrate  South tn the police court recently.  Magistrate South further stated that  the most drastic measures would be  adopted by the police authorities in  order to wipe out these dents of despair, which were growing apace. Hla  worship said last* session the law had  been altered to the effect" that there  should be no levying of distress. He  would like to rescind that law and  would in future impose a fine in all  cases of 1200 and costs or, in default,  three months.  The disclosures made by the police  in their recent raid have shown some  very cunning devices resorted to by  those who have been running this nefarious trade. Underground passages  for the storing of liquors have been  opened and casks of liquor concealed  by submerging in larger casks of wa  ter.  Two cases came up this morning  Angele Marie and Gus Frank, both  from tbo East End, were fined $200  and costs with the alternative as  given out from the bench and detailed  above.  Hundred Thousand Russians to Come.  Mr. W. D. Scott, superintendent of  immigration, arrived in Vancouver  Thursday. He is only making a  short visit, and will, while here, hold  several conferences with the immigration officials. One of the matters  which will probably be given his attention is the admission of the Russians of the "New Israel Colony" who  wish to come to British Columbia.  Thia matter is being given considerable attention by not only the provincial authlrities, but the powers of  the Dominion as well. Instead of there  being a few thousand of these immigrants, lt is understood that there are  in tbe neighborhood of 100,000 of  them.  This tact has developed through the  repeated investigations and examinations held by the local immigration authorities. At first it was understood  that there were only seven thousand  of the immigrants, but. it is-now definitely known that the faith of the  "New Israel Colony" extends throughout Russia and that there, are a large  number of small settlements scattered  pretty much all 'over the land of the  Czar. All of these people wish to come  to British Columbia. .  Mr. and Mrs. Frank R. Rusten and  family will return to this city on Aug.  25, having spent a delightful holiday  in the east, visiting friends and rela-  aives in Ontario and the New England  States.  Milwaukee No Right of Way Here.  A. M. Ingersoll, vice-president of the  Chicago, Milwaukee & Puget Sound  Railway, said on his arrival from Tacoma laBt night In the yacht El Pirn-  ero, that no right of way had been purchased by his railway through Burnaby for entrance Into Vancouver. He  denies the rumors that have been  afloat in real estate circles to that  effect, and does not know what will  be done in the future.  ' To Pace Six Charges.  Mrs. Margaret George was brought  before His Honor Judge Mclnnes  Thursday morning on five charges of  obtaining money by false pretences  and Que charge of theft. Miss Mary  Aubin was the complainant in each  case. The moneys alleged to be involved amount to about $500.  To Investigate Charities.  The following committee has been  appointed by Mayor Findlay to investigate the Associated Charities and  other organizations working in affllia  tion with it: Aid. McBeath, Trimble,.  McNeill, King and Cameron.  In view of the anticipatpd necessity  of supplying funds for the destitute  next winter it is believed by the aldermen that great care should be taken in the operation of the Associated  Charities, the city creche, and so  forth.
