 K Combined with  5!  VOLUME IV  H. H. STEVENS. M. P.. Editor-in-chief  I (By Professor E. Odium. M.A., B.Sc)  If in the history of great nations any people  have disgracefully transgressed law, human and  divine, this has been done by the United States,  arid in the last analysis by the highest official,  viz.. President Taft.  Now we eannot imagine that he is stupid, ignorant, or a wilful denser of his country. ' Let  us look-around for a **eajtonable cause.  Of course there ^re many noisy, unprincipled  aenstors and congressmen in a position of eleetive  > trust in the States. 4 These men are the leaders  andTthe supporters of Taft in his perfidy. 'But so  -far as they areV concerned, he, if left to tiimself,  would not care a fig for these shameless men  , either as leaders or as supporters.  * We must look elsewhere for the. moving cause,  for lite '* nigger in the fence/'   Taft is in a bat,  three-cornered fight at present.

He went so far as to send his servant, In confidence, to secure the Pope's blessing. His confiding in the help^f the pope gained for him a  speeial blessing which was drowned in the ocean  when the Titanic went down not long since. The  pope's blessing wm drowsed. Doubtless a second  was sent to* Taft that he might not be overwhelmed by a flood of adverse voters in the coming presidential election.  The cardinals and all they stand for are behind  Taft and against Teddy.

N.

The Pope is in commaujof.the United States at  the present time, through his henchman, Taft, who  has become a drivelling human unit acting in  obedience to the commands of his near-at-hand  and far-away masters. ,  If Britain can be hurt in her commercial fleet,  then: she will be wounded in her weakest part, and  with the lessening of her commercial fleet must  come the weakening of her naval or striking fleet.  The deep laid scheme is to build up the eommer-  ciaf fleet of the States and tear down the supremacy of the British fleet. Rome would ^ be glad to  see her latest conquered child, the United States,  grow greatin commerce and possess a really effecv  the naval arm which is helpless today because it  is lacking: in a commercial navy, the right hand of  a striking fleet.  Now the rest of .the world will have something  to say. How is it that Germany has not spoken  out in her blunt manner on the Panama Canal action of the United States? It is simple. Germany  is balancing ��������� between the lesser harm to herself  and the greater harm to Britain. Hence she delays, for the present. But her play will fail her in  the nick of time. And the Cardinals who are ruling Taft will fail as well.  There are many ways of bringing the States to  time. Germany would be glad to get Brazil or  Argentina, and if trouble should come between  Britain and the States, then Germany would  quickly move, nnd the Monroe Doctrine would  hurst like an overfilled kite, when too highly  heated.  Then Japan would make a bee-line for a port in  Mexico, and rightly too. Then Britain would take  all the islands now under the Stars and Stripes.  Canada would annex the Alaskan peninsula.  Maine and Washington. The ships from the Puget  Sound wouia become British, and any stragglers  in the way of ships going north would have to  take the "outside course." At present the Yan--  kei? ships are privileged to sail between Vancouver  Island and the mainland of British Columbia.  They would have to-take the outside channel, that  is. the open Pacific ocean. The Vancouver inland  waters are bigger and longer than the paltry Panama Canal.

Vancouver can never reach <!  means to hit and hurt the power of Britain.   This j ;��������� its designed possible proportions in the commercial world unless it has adequate and suitable rail- !  *> road terminal facilities and storage.   Nature has furnished us au ideal outlet to the Pacific and ;;  II* an extraordinary centre for railroads in False Creek.   This useless mud hole may be transformed ������>  ; into a mine of wealth and a field of modern enterprise if we so elect.   It stands in close proximity !  to the great wholesale and industrial districts'of our city and within easy reach of the ocean. ;'  Among the candidates for place in False Creek is The Canadian Northern Railway, it has "  ; many strong claims to our favor-and hearty sup'port. Not the least is the fact of its being A  ;; Canadian System owned and operated by Canadians in and tor Canada. With little help from cor- ;;  ������>' porations or governments this company has forge:! its way.-to the front accomplishing incredible jj  !; success in construction and finance. In the sixteen years of its growth it has contributed much to \\  '; Canada's prosperity.  Colonize.'. ' ;;  The Canadian Northern has been a great colonizer from the first. During the last few years J J  between six and seven thousand miles of railway have been built and four hundred towns and ������������������  villages established, many of which will be made acccssable to the products and manufactured !!  <; goods of this city and province by the completion of the Canadian Northern Railway System. Up- \\  V, on thw line being completed to Vancouver they will have a Continuous Transcontinental Railway  ft-ewPfaftlf-etU'to  Epoch maker.  The construction of the Canadian Northern Railway to the city of Vancouver will, be epochal in  time and effect in the industrial history of Canada. The low grades of this road from the Prairie  Provinces to this city will enable them to haul as heavy trains of loaded cars from Regina or  Saskatoon to the Pacific Coast as is now possible eastward to Port Arthur and the lakes. This  means much to us for to add to our wealth we must have the wheat of the Prairie Provinces pass  "through Vancouver.   It now goes East.  Costly Station.  The Canadian Northern proposes to build a splendid, costly, modern station in Vancouver.' in  the bed of False Creek.   This structure, with' fine freight sheds, would be a handsome addition to'  Vancouver.   The filling of this mud hole would enhance every piece of property in the east end of '<>  the city and immediately south of False Creek.  Millions oi Dollars.  The expenditure of $5,000,000 or *(>,000,000 in and about Vancouver in the next few years hy  this railroad is important alike to labor, merchants and property holders. Now is the opportune  moment for us to decide who will have our confidence and Right-of-Way in railroad construction  in Vancouver and the Province,���������a genuine-Canadian institution or an alien.  Mackenzie and Mann.  These names are svnoiivms for success and large achievement. Thev, aside Ironi their railwav  construction and-operation, have taken an active part in the industrial development of our Province." During the last three years, commencing from the day the Government of British Columbia agreed to guarantee the bonds of the Canadian Northern Railway, 1hey ami the group of men  associated with them have brought into the Province over .+33,000,000 and invested it in coal min-  !! ing, lumber manufacturing, salmon fisheries and the whaling business, including many of the largest, strongest and lvest-known companies of this country.. These various enterprises give employment to over six thousand men. with a payroll of nearly +500,000 per month. On these loyal citizens.���������men of brain and masters of railroad building, and safe, finance, we can and do rely. The  Canadian Northern, with them as its soul and source of energy, is sure to succeed. We hail their  coming with delight. They belong to us and give assurance of continued interest in Vancouver.  False Creek, now worse than useless, may soon be converted into a city asset of astonishing magnitude^  TheTesolution was again read, and after a briel,  discussion was adopted.-    '       *~, > '* , .^  Chief to tbe Deputy.  "Deputy you will give orders immediately to      '   ;  have the inhabitants ef Alexander street moved  at once," said Chief, Chamberlin,  turnings to -  Deputy Chief- Mulhern.  "Very well," said  Deputy. Mulhern.   "We  cleaned ont Shanghai and Canton alleys, and \,  guess we can clean out Alexander street.1*  This aroused a heated discussion in whicbf  Mayor Findlay, Chief Chamberlin, and all of tue|  Police Commissioners participated. They wei  unanimous in condemning prostitution andT in!  their purpose to eradicate from every precinct of?  the city.  Commissioner Williamson said:  **I am not making these statements and intro*;  ducing this resolution to secure votes.   While J*'  am in office, however, I am going to do all in tnyK  power to make this city a moral one."  "Alexander street is a regular hot-bed of vice,"l  he continued. ''Prostitutes flock there from aU  points in the United States and Canada. It'has  got to be an established rule that any persona  desiring to live off the gains of prostitution can  do so easily by coming to Vancouver. J% ia a  shame that such a state of affairs should exist.  Will Give Them Warm Reception.  "Now, the best thing we can do is to chase  every fallen woman out of the city at once and  turn over a new leaf. We must abate, the social  evil and the only way we can accomplish it ia to  order all the prostitutes out now and- advertise  the fact that any disorderly persons coming to  this city'in future will not be permitted to stay ���������.  here. We will give them a 'warm reception' and.^i  move them on immediately."'  Commissioner Leek voiced his   sentiments  follows, in part: ,-vf������r>-.cay  "I  believe  that Commissioner Williamson ia, * ^ll^i?fi  Special Engagement  Beginning Mon., Sept. 2  Du Moulino  Man with the Double Voice  Sings deep Bass or  High  Soprano  Comedy and Melody  GRANDVIEW   THEATRE  7 to 11p.m*  ,, >.K**.******H-***H****X^^ *^������4^^.������-y������^^H������^4"ll^������^������*H������4**.*^*������4'������  -or 500 miles iu length, and belong solely to Canada. Let the Yankees take to the open ocean, and  then we shall ask them how they like that for a  change. It is time for the Tal'tian Yanks, to get  a dose of their own medicine.  In all seriousness-, there are vast numbers of the  best people of the United States who are ashamed  of Taft and his fool demagogue senators. They  are ashamed of the act of their president and are  calling for. even demanding, a change in his conduct. In spite of the men and power, foreign, behind him, Taft will fail, and a sounder, saner,  more honorable man will be next president. If  not, then Uncle Sam is to be pitied.  He will be  disgraced and made a meaner object than Turkey,  or Persia in the eves of the world.  The visit of Sir Wm. Mackenzie to our city is  regarded with, interest from a business standpoint  as well as social. He was accompanied to Victoria by Colonel Davidson of the Canadian Northern. Important business matters are under consideration. If Vancouver is to keep step with  rapid developments in commerce, transportation  and storage faciliti >* must receive immediate  attention and support. Now is the time to "take  fortune by the forelock."  right and that the social evil should be eliminated.^  as rapidly as possible. I am in favor of arresting  these women and ordering them out of town at  once. If they don't go when they are told then  I favor jailing them. It is a well-known fact  that these unfortunate women are just what the  men make them and therefore I say they should  be given a chance-to get out of the city. We are  overburdened witli prostitutes. It certainly is a  sad state of afnairs, but we can't deny it. The  sooner we eradicate these unfortunate women and  tiie men that live off their earnings the better it  will be for Vancouver. I certainly am in favor of  having the police start in at once and clean out  the city in the way they deem fit. I will do all in  my power to aid them aud I think every good v.yl  upright citizen will do so too."  Mayor Findlay agreed with Ihe other commis  sioners.   His Worship can be relied on to give this  new movement his hearty support.    . ""'  Now is the opportune moment for the Good  Government League and all lovers of law, order  and decency to cooperate with the Police Commissioners in the difficult task they have honestly  taken in hand. Some disappointments are sure to  attend their efforts, but Chief Chamberlin has  ability and the courage of bis convictions. We  .should be big enough to give every individual,  every newspaper, church and organization credit  for their efforts towards a clean citv.

Morrison, whose appointment as adviser to President Yuan Shi Kai recently was announced and who is now  in lyondon, in a letter to the Times,  protests against the gloomy and pessi-  .miBtlc views of the English newspapers' concerning China.

The verdict was returned after  the Jury had been out twenty-six hours  and after it had been announced to  the court that it could not reach an  agreement.  The verdict came as a surprice. M rs.  Bernstein's, defense was that she could  recall' none of the hapenings immediately preceding or following tbe  shooting.  The verdict was a bitter disappointment to State Attorney Waynian. Angered, he denounced the jury and said  that the only sure way to secure the  conviction' of women murders was to  have a jury made up enirely or in part  of women.

"It would take a  good fly-mug to trail you, and If the  Japa can keep track of your imoke  they'll have to go some. Honest, we'd  like to go the route with you two, but  the best we can do la to back-track  and beat It across again on tbe ferry  Just as quick as wa see you landed.  Some of us Is entirely too popular in  Jersey. They'd like to keep us there  for a long time, they like us so much  ������ver there."  As the lights of the ferry came In  sight the gang chief-called a sudden  halt "Seems to me," was his sage  observation���������the remark' of an able  general���������"that If those Japs have anything coming at all It'll be pulled on  tne boat, and the same plan as we  worked In Park Row ought to be a  winner. You two go on ahead and  board the boat Just a bit ln front of  us. We'll all be right on tbe Job, and  If anything happens some of those  "fellow boys will have a smoky go-out.  That all right T Sure lt Is. Now beat  it along and leave the rest to us "  Brockett and Solano had by thia  Ume learned to trust Implicitly in the  rat-faced and slinking members of the  Eastman gang. They were upon the  big ferryboat scarcely five seconds  ahead of the departure signals, and,  as they sought the bow of the clumsy  old vessel, they could see no sign of  their, faithful escort ln the midnight  crowd of home-seeking Jerseyans.  Nevertheless, there waa the pleasant"  feeling that the gangsters were still  with tbem���������somewhere within hearing  and striking distance���������and it was a  cheering thought to realise tbat the  subtlest enemy, against such rough  fighters of tbe dark, could inflict but  little Injury.  .The lights of the city were dancing  on the black waters of the North river  when from the forepart of the cabin  rose a shrill cry.- of surprise and horror. Then another.cry, tbls time of  pain and despair. There was a rush  of feet, a tussling amid a knot of-men,  end the next moment two little fel-  jowa, finely dressed, and, as the cab-  In llgfate fell upon tbelr faces, showing  "You have to give credit to the  Jap," remarked Solano.

For one in*  itant Ota light shone upon tbe frenzied  f������rowu visages, and the boys caught  pne recognizing glimpse of Mr. Yast*  Jnoto.   Then the lights of tbe boat  Sent out; utter blackness shrouded  ia huge floating structure, and there  was a eplash, a gurgling yell, and another splash beside tbe boat. Tha  lights flared up again, and the gang  leader stood beside Brockett, cool, un-  ruflled, smiling affably.  "Good thing Hogan knew where to  Cad the electric switch," he said, pleasantly. "He worked on one of these  boats last summer, and he knowa  where they keep everything. Your  Jap friend la pretty wet by now, I'm  thinking. We made 'em Just ln time.  They had you spotted and was Just  slipping up to hand you something."  On the big boat man were running  jand bellowing hoarsely. Brockett and  ���������Solano heard the uproar, and gazed  out across the silent waters of tho  [North river, while the members of tha  [Eastman gang, aa unshaken and disinterested as the most Innocent mem-  Jber of the throng? were idly standing  pear them. Somewhere out among the  wash of the tide two men were fighting for their lives, or, perchance, had  already sought the bottom���������but there  was nothing to be seen from .the rail  of the ferry-boat, and the North river  was keeping its newest secret well.-  vmhv ta'cwemst/fimm*** ctnmtfr  something���������If I ever gambled���������that  he came safe aBbore, and Is after us  again."  "I hardly think so," said the Cuban.  "Our friends of the Eastman gang  settled him for keeps, and his partner  with him.   What I can't understand  1b the way they attended to him with*  ' out Interference or trouble.   Tbey put  , him overboard without  any ot  the  1 other passengers cutting ln to stop  them, and they all got-away without  ��������� being bothered by the police.  I can't  admire their lives or their principles,  i but we owe a great deal to them."  1   ' "We may have a chance to pay them  ��������� back some time���������at Mast, I "hope so,"  \ Brockett commented.

What they have done for  us was well worth It, wasn't It!"  The train pulled into Pittsburg to*"  wards noon, and the youngsters debarked. They had decided to turn  tbelr route, to Cleveland, then to Detroit, and thence across MJcntgan to  Chicago, changing railroads at each  city. A night train to Cleveland was  selected for the next trip, and. the  boys put In the afternoon In the Justly  celebrated city of steel, shipping and  eccentric millionaires.. A glance at a  baseball schedule showed them that  Pittsburg was playing at home during  the afternoon���������a circumstance which  settled their whereabouts for the  greater portion of the day* It had  never been the fortune of either boy  to see Hans Wagner, and the chance  ��������� was one tbat waa not to be resisted.  , Even   wltb   the  anticipation   of  a  glimpse at Wagner to lure tbem on,  1 Brockett and Solano did not lose their  caution.  Instead of going straight to  Forbes Held* homo of the Pittsburg  team, tbey started In the opposite direction, circled here and there among  tha busy streets for an hour, lunched  In a restaurant with entrances on two  different streets, and departed by the  door through which they didn't come  I wben tbey first went In.   Then they  separated, went 'round opposite sides  1 of a block, and rejoined each other  ' on a side street* so clear of traffic  tbat they could easily have spotted  ' anyone following., or shadowing tha  1 movements of either one.  Tha trip ta  I Forbes Held was then ln order, and  '��������� tha youngsters worshiped at the shrine  j of the great German shortstop for two  1 delirious hours.   When the   mighty  CHAPTER  XIII.

London, Aug. 21.���������General William  Booth, commander-in-chief of the Salvation Army, died at 10:30 o'clock last  night. He was born in Nottingham in  1829.  The veteran Salvation Army leader  was unconscious for 48 hours before  his death, the medical bulletins had  not revealed the seriousness of the  general's condition which, for a week,  it is now admitted, was hopeless.  Twelve weeks ago General' Booth  underwent an operation for the removal of a cataract In his left feye; For  two days after the operation indications gave hope of his recovery.

Leads Dominion.  Vancouver, Aug. 20.���������The big gain in  building permits issued during the  month of July in Vancouver has placed  this city in the first place of the entire  Dominion with regard to increase, according to tables compiled by the Financial Post of Canada. The difference  over July, 1911, was $965,634, or 87.1  per cent. The total for Canada shows  an advance of almost 50 per cent, over  that of last year.

The Hartley Iron and Wire Works,  146 Dufferin West, were the fortunate  bidders whose design for the expensive and elaborate gates of the government building at Victoria was accepted. It is on.e of the largest orders of  the kind undertaken by a Vancouver  firm doubtless. A large amount of  ornamental brass is required, which is  being-executed by Tiffany & Co., New  York, the leading firm in America. All  other work will be done a( the local  factory. A large amount of iron fencing is included with the gates. The  order totals about $50,000. Tiie job  surely will put a feather in Mr. Hartley's cap.  New Westminster, Aug.^-That the  1918 Provincial JSxbibiton to be Md  here on October 1 to 2, under the, ana*  pices of the Royal Agricultural and  Industrial Society will be the nio-t successful ever held is the opinion of the  fair management, who state that the  number of early entries is unusually  large. -Entries of Btock or produce are  coming in on every mail, aud the applications for space in the Manufacturer*'  and Industrial Buildings are being received daily. It is feared that the  capacity of these structures will be  taxed to their utmost, as the number of  exhibitors in this division will be exceptionally large.  On account of the late date at which  the fair is held, exhibits from farmers  and ranchers who felt unable to .leave  their work during the harvest period  when many fairs were held, will all be  in New Westminster, assuring the  greatest Agricultural and Stock display  of the season. The other side of the  fair will not be overlooked, however, as  some of the greatest vaudeville attractions on the continent have already  been arranged for. These will be free,  aside from the regular side shows and  other amusement devises.  Work on the new Horse Show build?  ing at the fair Grounds is being rushed  with all despatch in order that the  building can be completed in time for  the Second Annual Horse Show. Some  entries are already in for this event,  which will, without doubt, surpass any  Previous ev. nt of its kind ever held  ere.  Minister Shocks by 3unday Fishing.
