STEVENS, M.P,, Edito^nHshic^  ^    VANCOUVER, BiUTTDffl (^LUltfBU, OCTOBER 18, 1912.  Na*  APPALLING FIGURES  At the International Congress of Hygiene and  Demography held recently in Washington, D. C,  some startling statements were made indicating  the magnitude and fearful effectsi of social immorality in this country.      ���������;':���������'��������� (y^y'-yy.'.y  Prof. Vernon M. Ca'dy submitted figures showing how Americans spend their money:  Intoxicating liquors, ^,00(^w0,O00; tobacco/  $1,200,000,000; jewelry and^rn^nxents^ $800,066,-  000; automobiles, $500,000,000; church work at  home, $250,000,000; confectionery, $200,000,000;  soft drinks, $120,000,000; tea and coffee, $100,000,-  000; millinery, $90,000,000; patent me&cynes, $80,-  000,000; chewing gum, $13,000,000; foreign missions, $12,000,000; white slavery, social diseases  and other immorality, $3,000,000.  Mr. Cady declared that there were 300,000  registered white slaves in the United States, with  perhaps one million more not registered, nearly  all of whom (to be more definite, 80 to 90 per cent)  are bearers of the most horrible diseases that curse  the race.  It was declared that millions of otheik persons  suffer innocently or- otherwise through these diseases, and that a great majority of divorces, of  chronic ailments and deaths, of crimes and severe  surgical operations are traceable to the diseased  conditions.  In France there are annually about 25,000  deaths due to these diseases, and the������percentageJn  this country is increaaing stanch an alarming rate  that no time should be lost by anybody who has  the welfare of the American people at heart in  educating, teaching morality; enforcing law and  otherwise doing everything, possible io check this  monstrous tide of evil.  A great percentage of .iniai4ty ii directly traceable to these maladies. It costs $50,000,000 annually to care for the 100,000 insane persons, enough  money if rightly expended to root out the horrible  dens of evil where sueh^conditions are fottered.  I'vlA^$J&^ tb***e are the iiinomerable cwaca of idiocy, apoplexy, feeble-mindedness, paresis and  other,birth wretchedness, much of which ia the  -direct result of bad habits and bad diseases among  parents.  Worst of all, are the practices of bribery, graft,  corrupt favoritism and dirty politics in police ays-  terns, city govenments, state legislatures and board  managements where these social and other evils  are supposed to be '' regulated.' * ���������"'  HARDWARE  Bapco Paint, Oil  STOVES  and   RANGES  W.

Early Developments. '  The subject of the future of Vancouver Harbour is one whieli is attracting  attention in all parts of Canada. That it 4s destined- to becqinifeone of tiie.chief  shipping centers of this continent is no\V an admitted fact;- ' ��������� .'yy,.   _  It comprises the whole of Burrard Inlet, from Pt.r^rey and pt. Atkin&m to  Port Moody. It is thoroughly sheltered, tiie inbst exposed portions being ei^eJlent  roadsteads. All of it, however, is not suitable for dockage, but quite sufficient to  accommodate a vast amount of shipping. That portion from Hastings to Coal  Harbour ia now well occupied, False Creek is pretty well taken up also. The north  shore has several stretches of valuable frontage, but theportion which is attracting  the, most attention at present is that contiguous to Port Moody. From this point to  the center of the city the shores of the south side rise rather slmrply, except in spots,  and will not accommodate industries close to the waterfront with*such trackage, as,  is considered needful, but at Port Moody the situation is .different. There is ample  room for large industries, warehouses and elevators, with ample trackage facilities,  which at once marks this point as a coming industrial center.  It has always been the opinion of close ob������ervers that the time would "come  whe?i this section would be the scene of great activity and the C P.' R/ long since  realized this. ., ' ,  Some, three or four years ago the C. }'. R. filed a route, map along the north  shore opposite Barnet, supposedly to getaJine into North Vancouver, but really  for no other purpose than to tie "up the valuable route around the head of Burrard Inlet with the view to future requirements. The wisdem of this has been demonstrated by the recent discovery that the C P. R. intended to build its elevators  there within-.the next year. The only thing keeping back immediate construction  is the. desire to have its double track completed first, which will be within two years.  A bill will be introduced at the next sitting of the House at Ottawa giving the  Dominion Government power to appoint; a Harbour Commission tp govern the  whole harbour. Several miportant works ������re already projected, such as docks,  dredging, etc., and the needs of the easterly' extremity will not be neglected. Very  little is required tb place the approaching channel in first class shape; and as commerce demands the Dominion Government: will, put in the necessary .. facilities,  besides those which will be erected by private enterprise. It takes time to get extension works, such as harbour improvement, under .way. We hear ninch at what  Seattle is doing; as a matter of fact, Seattle has talked, but not a single tap of work  has yet been done on the elaborate" improvement scheme. t������ Vancouver Harbour  fifty men have just completed a definite, survey and soon tenders wiU be called for  actual work which will be commenced at aU early 4ate and the larger scheme oi' development will then be undertaken. We ha^oo reason to question, these developments because tbey are not started as'sobri- as iltey are suggested, no on** need hesitate  ;n placing/absolute confidence in our harbour from port Moody westward.

A pretty strong statement, but a careful perusal of the situation will,  ;;we. think,bear it out.  Most of them are committed by foreigners, or by Indians or white men known  as "white Siwashes." The most discouraging feature is the number which remain  unpunished. In the outlying districts the Indian or tough white character takes  to the mountains. JJe is hunted by the provincial police, a body of men who spend  most of their time loafing around the interior towns. They have little or no discipline or training. They know comparatively little qf the remote trails of the country,and, whilebrave enough at a pmch, they are practically helpless.  If the Provincial police were given certain districtsto patrol ahdV worked  under a system Whereby they had to call at given remote and distant points and  secure the signature of a resident or settler, it would have a dual effeet-^first to make  the officer familiar with the trails and the settlers, who would thus be more willing  to assist in case of need, and secondly, it would inspire in these rough settlers a confidence in the law and its officers which otherwise they are not likely to have. A  remote rancher knows full well that a "bad man" or an Indian can make his life  miserable if he, helps the officer and he also knows that it may be months or years  before an officer will come his way.   All that may be known of his fate is that he is  ; reported as "disappeared."  The Provincial Government could do much to remedy this situation if they  would mount the officers and compel them to regularly patrol their districts,  instead of loafing around the saloons of some outside town waiting for trouble to  turnup.  British Columbians difficult enough to cover without carelessness on the part of  the officers and every effort should be made to stop any further crimes such as those  which have disgraced the Province of late.  In the city a wholesale disarmament of the foreigners would be a good move.  A few stiff sentences for carrying concealed weapons would have a wholesome effect.  As long as men are allowed to carry arms they will find a way to use them.  4>*,4..t.*.^.*il|.������,iM|.,|���������ii,i.i|l',{.l������.|.,r.,;,i)���������|,,i.,| *,< ������,*,.M-'M'+'I"I ���������������>'>���������������������������*.

Hastings  townsite people hUve been asking for a year or  more to have a branch in their district. The councils have from year to year done good, work w '���������'<  providing money according to their view of the  case. But the aldermen are and ������lw#ya bare been  overwhelmed by claims on the city exchequer.  We must find a better plan than to beg froih a '  busy and over-crowded 'Council at the beginning  of every year.  A better plan haa been adopted  by most of the other cities of Canada. V  Provision should be made by legislation for a  certain amount on the dollar to go toward the  work of the library of this and other cities of the  Province.  In Vancouver we should have, say a half mill,  or some other portion of every dollar of city in*-  come from taxation devoted to library wrk.      -^  We hope the enlightened portion of this year's  Council will take up this matter and get it before  the coming legislature.  The Last Edition of the Encyclopaedia &ritt!-**-Jcft.  This large work, which ought to be nearly perfect, is faulty in many important directions, f have  read somewhere that the Roman Catholic Church  has condemned it as a failure owing to its short?  comings in relation to that huge political religious  organization.  I am inclined to join our Roman friends and  condemn the Encyclopaedia Britannica as a fail*  lire in other matters. Where it deals with the-/  "Orangemen" it lies either ignorantly or wilfully.  Hence it should be condemned by all Orangemen,  the world over, so far as thev are concerned.  #<  At EIGHT  Per "Cent.  E.

Sask.���������The campaign  for new industries at Watrous would  now appear to be well launched, and  with the start that has been made this  season insiders anticipate the substantial development of the town along industrial linea from now on. Among  the most important of the new enterprises secured within tho past few  weeks., is that of the co-operative laundry company, which will build and  operate plants In Regina-and Saskatoon as well ae Watrous. Stock for  this purpose is being subscribed, and  about $30;00d Is expected, to provide  for the requirements of the local plant.:  A brick building of modern structure  will be erected, designed to accommodate about 30 hands. The development of tbis and ether Industries  seems likely to accelerate considerably the already rapid increase in  population of Watrus. '  BRANDON, Man.���������The action of the  city council toward the securing of a  site for. the erection-of car barns for  Brandon's street railway is regarded  quite generally as in keeping with the  requirements in the Immediate vicinity. The site is easily accessible, and  the spur line of the Canadian North;  era now building will be extended to  the property. There can be little  question but that the spur line will increase the value of the property by at  least |25,000. It is the Intention to  have tbe street railway ready for actual operation in time for the Dominion fair next year. Specifications  for equipment and single-track, pay-as-  you-enter cars are now being prep-  pared. As a result of the announcement of the street railway company's  plans a pronounced movement in real  estate circles has been developing during the past few days, particularly in  the southern section of the city, where  it is believed a large number of factories and warehouses will be located  at an early date. The expediture of  $15,000 by.tbe commercial bureau during the presen year is already showing  marked results ln tbe city's growth  aud expansion.  ���������AHrcotrr-B**- *.***n ������*__*_r.c_.

The missing property safe to tho  bauds of its rightful custodians���������  [through shear good fortune, not  through skill or Sherlock Holmes  HMgaclty���������and only a limited space of  time remaining for the journey to the  Hlo Grande, it was only natural that  the young messengers should wish to  (���������tiurry on their road* They did not interrogate either tbe wounded negro or  .the captive Filipino, much as they  would have desired to do so, for neltb-  er whs In condition to stand an Inter-  Irlew. They did manage, however, to  get this Information, through tbe good  ioffices of Flynn: that It was not the  jFlilplno from whom tho giant African  Ud wrested the bfelt In the corridor  of the hotel. How big Sum had fallen In with Agullar, how the Islander  probed the secret of the negro's sudden affluence, and bow be also learned  of the more valuable contents of the  ibelt���������these were mysteries reserved  jfpr later solution. The boys were glad  enough, under present circumstances,  to regain their property and be on  .their way.  They were standing near the sergeant's desk in the police station on  the following morning, bidding good-  bys to the big officers who bad done  !*o much to aid them, when a little  .bunch of "harness bulls" came ln,  hustling a clump of Intoxicated prisoners to the cells below. Two or three  of the captives could hardly keep their  (eat; the group swayed and weaved ,  from side to side like some huge,  broken-legged animal, and the boys  were almost trampled under tbe un*  certain feet of the drunks and tbelr  guardians. As they broke ground to  get free from tbe crowd, Brockett  thought a hand sought his pocket,  and, ./Warned by the painful memory  of recent happenings, snatched quickly at lt. He caught nothing. Hurriedly thrusting hla hand Into his  pocket, ho brought up a scrap of paper, dingy and 'thumb-marked, but  criss-crossed with the sign of a familiar code.  Stepping over to the window he  ���������read, scrawled upon the dirty paper,  these hieroglyphs:  ���������_,TC A SH FA SH TC FA PO SH  8BH Poa T SH A TC W SH PO Pin R  BA TO 3BH Pos E L  SH E L SH.

Continue on route till further  instructions," Brockett translated.  The adventures which had their  climax ln the opium joint gave Srock*  ett and Solano plenty of material for  discussion as they rolled out on a  southwestern train. This time the  messengers made no attempt to disguise their course, but went straight  to the station, bought their tickets  and climbed aboard. Instead of purchasing the red or yellow slips whicb  license you to toss about in the berths  of the Pullman, however, they decided  to stay in the seats of the day-coach  and get what sleep they could, while  alternate   three-hour   watches   were  agreed on as the .best way ot fending  off any possible trouble. 'The man  iwho really wants to get you," remarked Solano, sagely, "has a much  better chance ln a Pullman than ln an  ordinary day-coach, and you take ten  .times as many risks for your extra  money."  i Before beginning the nlgbt watches  the youngsters traversed the whole  train, passing through the sleepers on  their way to the dining car, and satisfied themselves that none of their enemies had started on the same Journey. No German nobleman, big, gruff,  and devoted to his kaiser; no cat-like  Japanese, no slinking Filipinos, were  to be seen from smoker to diner, and,  as none of the berths were made up  early, there was no possibility of a  concealed antagonist crouching behind  tbe green curtains. After aupper they  returned to their red-plushed perches,  and spent three hours discussing the  happenings at Chicago, or the adventures yet to come.  Solano flBhed from some Inner pocket a tiny Anglo-Spanish text-book, and  urged Its Importance upon his companion. "Tou may need to know a  few words of the language before very  long," he Insisted, "and now Is as  good a time to begin learning aa any."  "Why not let me carry the book?"  responded Brockett "Then, if a Mexican starts any conversation, I ean  simply dig up the book and read him  the proper answer."  , "Good Idea,** assented Solano, "except ln emergency eases. Suppose a  large, thick revolutionist, of the bone-  head variety, asks you to give a quick  acoount of yourself, and has a rifle  pointed at you while be Is asking?  And suppose, also, that he gives you,  tn Spanish, a time limit ot two mi**  utea to make good?

Ho Immersed himself, in Its psg������_ till ten  o'clock, when It was time for tht Urst  watch .to begin���������a duty wbicb bad  fallen to Brockett by tbo flipping of a  penny.

Nothing happened to disturb tbo  travelers through the night, but the  alternation of three-hour pertodB left  tbem In a more or less drowsy, half-  dazed condition when morning came.  The train was bowling along through  tbo half-fenced, half-cultivated fields  of Arkansas; Solano was nodding In'  bis Seat, and Brockett was trying to  absorb some more of the Anglo-Span-  name* are* Harry Brockett ant  Solano,, ain't they?**'  "Not exactly,** parried Brockett.

"There's  nobody else on this train' answers the  description I've got.here, and, furthermore���������'" with one quick clutch he  twined his fingers in Brockett's- collar, unbuttoned it,, and jerked it from  the shirt-���������"furthermore^. boy,/the laundry initials in this here collar is IL B.

And.then they had a swampin' gun,  As big as log of maple,  On a deuced little cart,--  A load for father's cattlet  ���������And every time they fired it off,  It took a horn of powder;  It made a noise like father's gun  Only a nation louder.  I went as near to it myself  As Jacob's underpinnin'  And father went as near again���������  I thought the deuce .was in him.  Cousin Simon grew so bold,  I thought he would have cocked it,  It scared me so I shrinked off  And hung by father's pocket.  And Captain Davis had a gun,  He kind a clapped his band on't,  And stuck a crooked stabbing iron  Upon the little end on't.  And there I see a pumpkin shell  As big as mother's basin;  And every time they touched it off  They scampered like the nation.  And there I see a little keg,  Its head was made of leather;   .  Tliey'knocked upon't with little sticks  To call the folks together.  ,*-''*S_tr:  a    '/'.-to  ,.-f y->f[  \'.;- $  '-.  ���������ATJ-fc-'i  GRA^ PH1PPS  WIRING, riTTiNOS, PIXTU������CS  Estimates on all classes of electrical work  .'

'  BURRARD INLETS PIVOT  Port Moody is still iu the limelight, and, judging by appearance, it will continue to be  for a long time to come. People from all over the country are flooding us with enquiries  respecting this city and we have our work almost cut out in answering them.  It is a great convenience to iys that we areablje to make use" of the columns of the weekly  press, otherwise we should be kept busy all day. answering our numerous correspondents.  Those of you who read Saturday's News-Advertiser saw a news story there to the effect  that Port Moody was now demanding a car line to New Westminster. That Port Moody  will get this car line was the opinion of the writer.  This matter is a smalt one compared with other far larger developments that are in.  store for Port Moody. Every day brings news of some further development to theseity and  .also for further activities that will take place in the immediate future.  We have never made a more substantial investment than when we purchased our delightful subdivision in Port Moody known as  Old Orchard  It is situated in the very heart of the coming business activities of the city. It is located  adjacent to the site for the proposed four million dollar canal. It is in the immediate vicinity of the site for the great C. P. R. elevators. It is within a stone's throw of the site������for  the new C. P. R. depot. It is waterfront property and the most ideally situated of any of  the subdivisions in Port Moody. .     ���������     ->     .  So valuable is property in Port Moody becoming that proposals are now under way for  the reclamation orthe tide flats directly in frone of our property. This will considerably  extend the area of Port Moody: y  Incorporation will be granted the city next year and then Port Moody will no longer be  under the control of the Provincial Government. Attorney-General Bowser has promised  that the matter of granting Port Moody a charter will be one bf the first subjects dealt with  on the opening of the legislature. Port Moody then will have the control of its own finances,  to be used in the development of the city.  ,. We are now putting before you a business proposition, the like of which we firmly believe has never been broached before. Port Moody realty is the best buy on the market today and we give you the opportunity of purchasing one of the finest lots in the whole of  the locality. It is splendidly situated and is undoubtedly the finest investment that you  could possibly wish for.  We are honestly convinced that property in PORT MOODY, which has recently taken  a rapid upward trend, will enhance in value in the near future at a far greater rate than it  has done in the past. That is why we are so convinced that you cannot do better than purchase here.  We are running free excursions to Port Moody every afternoon and we cordially invite you  to come with us one one of our trips. The boat starts at 1.30 p.m. rain or shine.
