 X^lwneVyi.K  VANCOUVER, BBITigHVGOLl  JANUARY 15, 1915.  5 Cents Per Copy  wy////M/Bym<!^^^^mi  jf     Y^  * "  campaign  ==* Now  Startling Conversion to the British View-Point of Rev. K D. Hiilis of Brooklyn, N. 'Y.--!SelWm<**u*M*at*mm  A New Id% For ' French' ^R^en^:-^-See''.F>ai|Ii|^^K  [  Mayoralty Campaign   f d ; ���������  On all hands the expression is heard, "It is  anybody's game as yet/' and tomorrow is  Election Day. Rarely has such complete uncertainty prevailed at this stage of the campaign.  And yet the issues are clear and clean-cut before  the people. ��������� ,  The Western Call has striven to preserve a  complete neutrality between the candidates. We  have, of course, our preferences, but the moral  issues are not involved1 nor the differences  amongst candidates marked enough to call for  our aggressive action.  We believe the time, has come for the people  of Vancouver to demand that the railroads who  have received such enormous, real estate holdings  from the city holdings that in days to come will  be -of almost incalculable value, that these railroad systems should begin to comply with their  end of the bargain, and the man who, as Mayor,  will insist most emphatically on this is the man  we would like to see elected, not necessarily by  legal action/ for that 'way mostly madness lies,  but by the strong, steady, constant pressure that  a Mayor and Council .who are in deadly earnest  know how to exert.  y This is the one great an_t4jnnortar$ issue 0f  the campiignXone to which! the neW Council, in  gny- events should devote its instant attention.  - Our city has been extremely patient with tbe  P/Council on this matter, but if we. guage public  sentiment arigbt������4be day of-patience is over and-  the incoming Mayor-and Council must exert  .themselves thoroughly in tbis direction or count  4ipon an aroused, and indignant public when-  they next come before the electors. ;  The campaign has been conducted in an unusually jprentlemanly spirit, which redounds to  the credit .of the candidates and in this respect  has set a good example for all time.    -  ��������� A rumor from underground sources was  brought to the notice of the Western Call yesterday that Mr. C. S. Douglas was pledged to  I the Minora Park people and a wide open city,  together with the re-establishment of Alexander -  Street. We are glad to be able, through the  courtesy ������f if* Douglas himself, to give these/  rumors a complete and official denial. It is only  fair to Mr. Douglas io say that he repudiates  entirely any such associations or pledges.  . N Another, issue that is before Vancpuver,_ al-.;  though not made much of in this campaign, is.  the restriction of hours for the selling of liquor  during the continuance of tbe war. So far, our  Counwl hat not taken an inspiring stand upon  this question. Now that the Pominion authorities have made it an offence calling for im-  [> mediate dismissal for any enlisted man to be  intoxicated, we trust it may be found possible  to restrict the hours at whieh "drink" can be  obtained. Tbe evening drinking is unquestionably the great temptation to overstep tbe mark.  The men that stand for this are the men to  vote for. ,  tl i,  IV'  -X-  QUESTIONS FOR JOB MARTIN.

It is hardly necessary to point out  that this library is already a public institution..  The South Vancouver people have subscribed already $1,500 by private gubsoription, -ftiriUtte  South Vancouver Council have given twiceV$500  to its support. The people then have a present  investment of $2,500- in the institute and the  bylaw is framed, to lift the mortgage and, preserve this piece of South Vancouver public  property from foreclosure.

Ption*. Jteymour 9086 .  * During my term of office a period  of reckless borrowing haa been  brought to a close. \  In the previous four years the City  was saddled with $15,000,000 of  bonded indebtedness, making our annual charge next year for it and local  improvement $2,226,000.00, being ovei  two fifths of our total income.  I would just like to call the attention of the electors to the fact that  two years ago I stated that, in my  opinion, Vancouver should look to tht?  development of her harbour, that we  required a grain elevator, togetlici  with a drydock to accommodate the  shipping.  During my' term of office and at  Mr. Stevens' request, in order to help  him, I have made one trip to Ottawa,  and one trip to Winnipeg, and on  these trips succeeded in helping him  so efficiently tbat today the contract  for a large grain elevator has been  let for the City of Vancouver, and all  tho preparations made, including plan?  and specifications for an up-to-date  drydock.  I was also instrumental in saving  $300,000 to the City in my handling  of the. jBast End Viaduct Bylaw  Mayor Taylor was strongly urging yoi  to vote $400,000. I opposed this anr  afterwards got an order from th<  Railway Commission- which made th<  City's share less than $150,000.  In these things alone, mpre has beei  done for the permanent advancement  of the City of Vancouver than wa'  ever done in two years previous.      ���������,  In reference to expenditure and  taxes. My policy is to keep the ex  penditure down as low as reasonably  can be. At the same time, I do ncl  believe thai a' cheese pairing policy is  the proper one to take just now. It  seems to me that in order to help oui.  citizens, both working men' and busi  ness men, the City should adopt the  policy of the British Government, and  give as much work as possible during  a time, of stress and scarcity of employment.  If you favor, me with your vote on  election day, I promise you the same,  and even better, service in the future  thfcn.you karat had ia the- past.  "Never swap horses when crossing a  streem."

TtAST  ANI THEJWEK  For nearly ten years Germany  fcas been drinking a toast, "To  the Day," at her naval and military social gatherings.  Little by little it has become  known that the toast meant "To  the day when Germany will meet  Britain in open conflict."  "Well, Germany has Had her  way. "The Day" has been upon  her for these last weary, sodden  five months, and we believe already the toast must sound gruesome on the lips of even the most  blatant Junker in Germany.  All Germany, is a house of  mourning. There is scarcely a  family in the kingdom that haa  not lost at least one of its number in, the war, but one particularly touching story is related of  a family named Von Eisen, at  Cologne. The husband and father  was a retired army colonel, white  haired and bent with years. He  had three sons in the active army  at the beginning of the year and  one in the navy. Another, a reserve of a year's standing, immediately joined the colors, while  the sixth, a young man of 19.  volunteered and was accepted  during the first week of the  struggle. In General von Kluck's  sweep through France' in the  early stages of the war, three of  the young men fell and were  buried in the battlefield trenches.  One week later the fourth was  killed in a skirmish on , the  Loraine frontier, while the next  day the sailor found a watery  grave when his ship was sunk  during the attack of an English  squadron on the Germans behind  Heligoland Bight.  The loss of five sons in ten  days drove the mother to commit  suicide. Even the father-eastern,  old army colonel���������^could stand it  no longer. He sought an interview with the emperor on one of  his monarch's journeys through  Cologne, to the battle-front, and  told his story, praying that the  last of his children might be  spared. Emperor William was  greatly moved by the old man's  story, and issued an order that  the young man should be detached from his division, occupying a place in the long battle line  in France, and be sent to Cologne  for garrison duty. The aged  colonel, delighted, immediately  set off for the. front to bring back  his youngest boy���������all he had left.  He sought out the commanding  general of the division and asked  him if he had received the  kaiser's orders. "Yes, sir," replied the general, saluting, "but  the lad received another command before I could read mine to  him. He was blown to pieces by  a shell ten minutes before the  kaiser's message arrived." Two  days later the bereaved father  was found in his arm-chair in his  lonely home���������dead of a broken  heart."  FOB 809001. TRTOTOJE.

ROYALITE OIL b beet few all uses  THE IMPERIAL 0& CO., Limited  Mr. Charles Sangster, who is  a candidate for School Trustee,  came to British Columbia fifteen  years ago as an erecting engineer  for an Eastern Canadian mining  machinery firm? with whom he  had been trained in that business.  After a few years travelling in  the mining country as engineer  and salesman, he was sent to  Vancouver ten years ago to open  a branch sales office here. Four  years later he took a .position  with the Vancouver branch of  the Canadian Fairbanks-Morse  Company, in charge of their  machine - tool department, and  was soon promoted to the position of assistant manager of that  business. He has since entered  into business for himself under  the name of "The Chas. Sangster  Machinery Co.," specializing in  compressed air and mining machinery. - V. .  Mr. Sangster hiis .for ; some  years beeji a close student of.  municipal affairs and collected a  great deal of data;on municipal  governmentthiroughout the United  States and Canada. The knowledge thus gathered led him into  a campaign of: civic reform in  1909 and 1910. XXX  At that time he wrote several  interesting and instructive letters  to the "Daily Province," setting  forth the difference between the  systems of> Board of Control and  Commission Government, which  were widely Tead and discussed  at various meetings throughout  the city. The campaign had a  definite educational value.  Mr. Sangster is a family man,  the eldest of his three children  being of school age.  P. Delahunty.  Petone, N. Z., 1914.

She .  has ruthlessly murdered the Belgian- Nation,  ruined her merchants and industrials* ravished  her. women -and laid her world-famous and irreplaceable architecture in the dust, and yet  wishes to conserve the good opinion.' of the  neutral world. To this end she lias accused  Britain of commercial jealousy and. imputed to  France, a spirit of revenge.  How far these* accusations are true may be  - judged by the recent utterance of a prominent  Frenchman,  Gustave Herve.    Speaking of the  1 barbarities perpetrated by the Germans in Belgium and in France, he asks:  VHow shall we retaliate t' When we enter  Germany .1 hope .General Joffre will .issue a  proclamation   reminding   everybody   concerned  .that to the soldiers of the Allies the lives of  women* children and non-combatants are sacred.  When we are before Cologne our 75 (the French  314-inch field gun) 'must be told���������our soldiers .  do not need the reminder���������that Cologne contains one of the Seven Wonders of the' World,  which must not be touched.1 And at Munich,  Dresden and Berlin, a guard of honor must be  placed, before every library, museum and art  gallery.   Our conduct in .Germany must,be so  ~. different from that of the Germans in Belgium  and France that the very stones will recognize  that ow victory is^tbe victory of civilization.'/  ,   _j _^x__���������-.   yncle Sara, Behave!  , The moral position created for tbe United  States by the exchange of notes, with Britain on  the "detention of/ shipping" is not an enviable  one.  First  It is not disputed���������even by Germany��������� .  , that a grave and brutal infraction of treaties  and international law, to which America is a  Sarty, has been committed towards Belgium by .  Germany. ** ���������        - . l  Second. The United States has issued no  note to Germany in regard to this, not even an  unofficial protest.  Third.' A debated point has arisen over "the  rightof search "of neutral ships ;-not^he. it said, -  over "the right of search," which is conceded  in the American, note, but over the method in  which it is being carried out.   The United States  has sent a note to Britain protesting; thus han-a  dicapping Britain in a fight that is admitted by*  the whole neutral world to stand peerless in  , history from a moral standpoint.  The issue seems clear ��������� no protest, made,  whilst a little nation is ravaged and ruined contrary tp international law and signed treaties,  where hundreds of thousands of lives have been  sacrificed.  But when American commerce is interfered  with, and dollars���������not principles and signed engagements���������are at stake, a protest is issued.  Brothers .Wilson and Bryan, we had not  thought it of you. 4  According to American statistics, Great  Britain has some cause to carefully watch shipments from the United States.  In November, 1914, the United States exports  to Italy totalled $17,000,000, against $7,500,000  in November, 1913; to Denmark- $13,000,000,  against $1,000,000; to Norway $16,000,000,  against $7,500,000; and to Sweden $7,500,000  against $1,000,000.   : x =   Duke's Extra Choice Creamery Butter, 3 lbs.  for $1.00 is a winner.

Realizing that the duty of a License Commissioner is to see to the enforcement of the  ~ statutes, and the bylaws, I pledge myself to that'  course if elected to the board. I have been asked  what my attitude towards earlier closing hours  for bars will be. My answer is that if. the City  Council passes a shorter hour bylaw it will be  my bounden duty, if elected, to see that the law  is enforced.  5. I am strictly opposed to any increase of  licenses in Vancouver, believing there are now  more than enough to carry on the traffic in this  city.  OR. I. (il tNDON MOODY  Many reasons could be given as to  why Reeve Kerr should be returned  to office for 1915. We present- a few  of the most salient for the consideration of the sovereign electors of  South Vancouver:  First: During the three years of  his official experience, Reeve Kerr  has shown ability in financing for the  municipality, and that has been no  small task under existing .circumstances. To the general shortness of  money during the last two years there  was added the burden of chaotic conditions that confronted, the Reeve  upon his advent into the reeveship���������  conditions for which he was in no  way responsible.  Second: The Reeve has grown with  experience, and measures well up to  the circumstances and the needs of  the term upon which we are entering.  Not all men have the growing quality  and the grasp necessary to cope with  new events and' exigencies. We aTe  forced to admire his expansivenesB  and believe that it should be 'honored  by his re-election.  Third: Many improvements have  been made in the municipality during  the years of his incumbency, and  many others are planned or in part  completed. Large things for. South  Vancouver are in the Reeve's mental  vision awaiting opportunity to be  worked out for .the benefit of the  people. I  Fourth: There is, a generosity about  Reeve Kerr too often lacking in public officers. A man who thinks for  himBelf and dares to follow his convictions makes enemies. Reeve Kerr  thinks for himself and acts upon his  convictions,' and hence has enemies,  but he is big enough and sufficiently  generous to treat his enemies as he  treats his friends, .with fairness and  men, and knows how to act his part  without malice. He ia a man among  men. >        ,;-,_>. ..-4  .  Fifth: Reeve Kerr has been conscientious * in the handling of money  and the business of ^Sputh Vancouver.  His traducers bave talked much but  said little and have, utterly failed to  prove any of- - their -' oft-repeated  charges. Indeed,' the very effort to  besmear his character has only  brought the futility of the attempt  into the limelight. Not an act of  maladministration stands against him.  Sixth: To presage correctly a man's  future in' office or in ' any capacity  you must-know Ji is past," for the past  is but the gateway to the future.  Reeve Kerr is well, known, to the citizens of Greater Vancouver as a m&n  of honor, moral worth and commercial  integrity.' Hia record, examined, doe's  him. credit and suggests his fitness- for  the grave responsibilities of the reeveship of South Vancouver during 1915.  That other good and honorable men  are among his rivals 1b "certain, but  they labor under tbe disadvantage of  inexperience, which is a" great disqualification during the money stringency of the present, 'time.  Can tre, as electors, do any- saner  .thing tot our municipality than reelect Reev,e Kerr for another term,  and tben_ boost Wm ������������������_ fo* success;  "Don't swap 'horses" crossing the  utrflam"   of   broaant   financial   em'er-  stream'  geacjjr^  of  present  financial   emer-  water yo&OB.

The British protectorate over  Egypt is the retort to Turkey's  entrance into the war. Turkish  suzerainty was already as vague  as the fiction of international  control in Egypt, and hoth have  vanished in battle-smoke.  Along the Nile, control of an  "inferior" race is at its best.  When Arabi Pasha, a patriot  born too early, rebelled against  the Khedive, England, in the  bond-holders', interest, invited  France and Italy to.help' subdue  Both declined. England  did the job alone and took in  hand an Egypt bankrupt, its  people enslaved, its taxes collected by the rawhide whip, its  land largely the property of the  Khedive, its ambitious public  works in confusion.  In one generation better irrigation has increased the cultivated  land 60 per cent. Upon the area  of Maryland, a mere green ribbon  drawn across yellow desert, more  than 11,000,000 people live by  farming and export produce:  Wheat thirty bushels to the acre,  a heavier cotton yield per acre  than, in our South, two or three  crops a year, speak of the richness of the soil. Taxes have been  lowered by wise finance and a  wider basis. The problem of  rural credit, hardly yet'attacked  in the United States, has been  largely solved; and more than  1,000,000 farmers, are sheltered by  the law that protects _ five-acre  homestead against .seizure . for  debt.  Nationalist sentiment was greatly  strengthened by the revolt of the  Young Turks' in Constantinople  in 1908. But the British have  been doing much to fit the  Egyptians for self-government by  incorporating provincial councils,  by entrusting to them the care of  education and by governing the  country,through native officials.  By no means all Egyptians are  in haste to achieve independence  of a rule so wise and efficient.  Rod and Quit  January, Hod and Gun in  Canada, published by W. J.

Hillis, D. D.,  pastor of Plymouth. Church,  Brooklyn, and successor to the  world famous Henry Ward  Beecher, is returning to hie first  love.  Thirty years ago Dr. Hillis was  a Sunday School missionary, one  of the army of young men that  the Sunday School Union of  Philadelphia kept moring in the  rural districts of the United  States, and especially in the  Western States, missionary Hillis  was an aggressive preacher actively evangettoal and strongly  evangelistic He was a great  power for good, handling the  Word of Qod as a two-edged  sword, and looked upon with a  but a world of armed camps, how  we in this country, too, would  have to adopt militarism in order  to live.  "Just prior to that time, in the  first of my Sunday evening sermons in this course, I had praised  the Kaiser. I, believed in the  Qerman ideals, I believed in German progress, Qerman inventions,  Qerman principles. But I was  wrong. I have now become convinced of what I never imagined  before that in the German viewpoint the only sin against the  Holy Ghost is military impotency,  and, to use Treitsehke's words  again, the only virtue is militarism." *  The pastor of Plymouth uttered  ���������slow of pride and Joy by these Li,-J u   uxjr#muuwi ut^fcu  word can hardly indicate.

The Old Book was  laid aside and the New Theology  enthroned in its place, with its  subtle, Qerman philosophy carefully hidden in its bosom. Hillis  sprang into popular fame and has  kept in the spotlight ever since���������  but not as a Bible student or  expounder���������but as a virile exponent of the German theology.  It is not to be wondered at  that Dr. Hillis at first espoused  the cause of Germany against  Britain. His conversion, is the  real miracle and if it helps to  destroy the German philosophy  that, has so long possessed him���������  body and soul���������a great work for  the Kingdom on .Earth will have  been wrought.  Dr. Hillis contends that the  position he haa come to must ultimately be that of the whole  world.  "I -was for Germany' five  months ago," said Dr. Hillis, "I  have been lecturing foir five years  about the lessons we might' learn  from Germany. Five months ago,  it may be remembered, I gate an  interview, in which, T praised  Germany and in which I took the  part of the German people in the  dreadful war that h,*a come;  ��������� "Put I have changed ray mind.  J have seen that X was mistaken.  Several months ago I gave instructions to my lecture bureau  to withdraw my lecture, 'The  New Germany," from ray list.  That was about the middle of  September, and it was only then  that I realized what a German  success would mean to the world  ���������how there could be nothing else  the republic and self-government  and the liberty of the press. Well,  if. I do change my views and am  converted to his viewpoint, I certainly will retract my statements.  But I think this improbable. The  task of converting me should be  let out as a government contract  in piecemeal."  Dr. Hillis was reminded here  that a number of people were  said to have left the church in  the course 'of his sermon as a sign  of protest against the expression  of his views. Asked if it were  true, Dr. Hillis answered:  "I did not see many leave,"  and then declared that it was  impossible to imagine that war  should not be discussed , in the  churches as it was being discussed everywhere else. He continued with the assertion that he  believed it was his duty as the  minister of Plymouth Church to  say what he had, and then made  this assertion with a vehemence  that -was almost startling:  Won't Sacrifice His Manhood.  "Whenever the time comes that  I have to add God and the devil  together end divide by two in  the name of neutrality, 111 withdraw. I'm not going to sacrifice  my manhood for what ' some  people call neutrality.'  It was on this score that Dr.  Hillis came out with his equivocal declaration that he was  against Germany and against the  Kaiser. He asserted that the  viewpoint of the German people  would have to change if they  were to take the place ' in the  world he thought their due, five  months ago, and he stated there  could be no doubt but that the  war was occasioned by Germany's  lust for power���������political, industrial, economic.   _,; Xv  "A* diplomat and author said  plainly' two years ago, in one oil  his-review articles, that,Germany  would go to war- to' obtain the  iron deposits in Northern France,  and that if she loses the war, she  ���������more strongly 'against Germany  now .than he had before been  in favor of Germany, he said. It  was a position, he said, to which  everybody in the United States  was turning and it was inevitable  that Germany should find the  world against her.  In his frank avowal of his position , regarding Germany and  the Kaiser, Dr. Hillis admitted;  too,"that his sermon had contained more than appeared on the  surface. When he stated in the  sermon that no man or ruler  should ever adopt the view of the  peasant and the caveman, and  try to make the Eternal God' a,  tribal God, he had the Kaiser in  mind, said Dr. Hillis.. \  In addition, Dr. Hillis said that  while he believed that his sermon  could- not be considered in any  way a violation,of President Wilson's appeal for neutrality, yet,.  indirectly, the passages to which  exception had been taken could  be rightly construed as an attack  upon Germany and the Kaiser.  *<*The sun and t the -, summer  shine forall kinds of seeds and  roots and' the minister and ihe  church should create an atraos-  phjpRe i������ wbich *U temperamental will t^Ji behind in. the manufao  _Por 8elf-Govern_nent.  /'  ���������r* .������. y >������;>/  'f''.^A?������5������-j!_  X% " A'!

I am trying to freshen the old American  ideals of self-government for the  young men and women in Plymouth Church, i If  the ��������� whole-'  hearted support of America's free  institutions involves indirectly av  dissent   from   imperialism   and  militarism, I am^not responsible.  I admit there is a necessary condemnation of autocracy involved  in the mere publication of the  Declaration of Independence Ours '  is a government of laws and not  of men, and I have been discussing the principles of self-government and not rulers who repre- '  sent imperialism.  "Neutrality does not mean the *  wiping out of conviction.   There>  are some men who   think   that  neutrality means adding God and  the devil together and dividing  by two.   And there   are   some  statesmen who seem to think that  neutrality means adding together  autocracy   and  democracy,   and  halving the result.   I do not share  that view.   I believe it is the first  duty   of   the   German-American  and the native born American to  uphold   the   fundamental   principles of self-government, and of *  an industrial civilization as opposed to a military machine, and  if this means protest and criticism, then that protest must be,  accepted."

Jt is quite true that there were  some of my German friends' and  members who rather protested  against my view the other night.  But they had the same right and  liberty1 to protest that X have. A  German physician told me plainly  that, he thought that within six  months I would change my view,  and .with the new light go over  to the position of his nativedand,  and even thought that I might  retract all my studies, that are  apparently prejudiced in favor of  turing race, and that the.|Tench  bankers and -French -engineers  will make France the great manufacturing force and the richest  people in Europe. The Napoleonic  wars were wars between political  ideas. The collision was between  autocracy and bureaucracy and  French democracy and radicalism.  The new antagonism grows out  of economic conditions. Germany  wants to supersede England upon  the seas, and Germany wants the  iron mines of France, and this is  the whole situation in a nutshell.
