Father Bonner  of the "Western Catholic."  (Prof. E. Odium. M.A.. B.Sc.)  Reverend Sir:   In last week's "Western Call"    \ \  I had the pleasure of addressing a few thoughts  to you on some phases of public life and religious  teaching in relation to our National Common  Public School System.  For the present 1 pass on to. another phase of  your Church life, its aims and claims. As I do  so, I shall show you, and through you, the general public that you aim at the impossible, or in  other words you aim at making the public and  your people believe that Jesus Christ Was wrong  -when He said "No man can serve two masters."  You Sir, and your Church, claim that Protest- :s.  ants, and especially Orangemen, are intolerant,  and that tolerance is characteristic of the Romish  'Church.. ��������� ���������..   V ������������������;���������)<-������������������]'���������  Have patience with me, and I shall present my  Case so clearly that you will.get my intent. Perhaps you are acquainted with the Rev. father  Phelan. , Of him "The Catholic Register" says  "The IJoly Father himself regards Father Phelan  as a vertitable fountain-head of orthodoxy."  Now this "Father" says or Protestantism:  "Today the whole world believes that Protestantism is the mother of all abominations, the  Scarlet woman, and the whore of Babylon. The  unchurched and unsexed millions' who disgrace  every civilized land, are the waifs of the Reformation. The disrupted homes, morgues of plighted  love, are the handiwork of the Reformation. The  debauchery in high and low life in every land  where Protestantism holds sway attests the general loosening of bond's of morality caused by the  Reformation. Protestantism has become the synonym of unbridled lust, domestic infidelity, and  irreligion throughout the world. Compared with  England, Japan is clean. Judged on the score of  honesty, the United Statea stands belowSouthern  Italy. In divorces'and illegitimacy the Protestant  peoples are first and all the rest nowhere."

' Sir William-Mackenzie affirms that the Canadian Northern Railway does not ask or require  ) a bond guarantee of $20,000,000 from the Dominion Government for the financing of the British  Columbia section of the transcontinental railway.  "Our present British Columbia grant and subsidy will be ample'to meet all requirements,"  said the distinguished president of the company.  SITUATION IN NV&OPg.  The strained relation in Europe is less tense  than at the beginning of the week. Optimism  obtains at the great centres. It is believed that  Oreat Britain, France and Germany can avert a  general European war, which has been imminent.  A sane view of the international interests involved favors continued peace among the "Powers."  Adrianople is in the closing grip of the allies.  Fire^ famine and anarchy weaken the Turks and  second the destructive efforts of their enemies.  ATTORNNY-GINmi- W. J. BOW8UR  ANO THU OWJ&OVWUN.  The recent conference of clerygmen and officials resulted in opening to view a line of cleavage between the representatives of the religious  and moral organizations bf the city and the Honorable representative of the people of British  Columbia.  The former demand the operation of the Criminal Code of Canada as applied to fallen women,  including a jail sentence penalty; the latter urges  more merciful treatment of these pdor victims of  human lust, and advocates the arrest and punishment of keepers of bawdy houses, landlords  and patrons whose unbridled passions furnish a  weak, plausable excuse for these vile dens.  "Enforce the law," insists the one. "Educate and reform the women," argues the other.  The Police Commissioners now favor drastic  measures, if necessary, to clean the city. "A  change of heart!" claims the Attorney-General.  "Our duty!" insist the Commissioners.  In the meantime the prostitutes and their characterless supporters "laugh and grow fat."

Tfye tremendous responsibility imposed upon a people who undertake the development of a ^;  new country has never found "a more striking example than that of the Dominion of Canada. A ��������� ������������������  territory so vast in extent that, even at the time of writing, only a comparatively small portion !!  is known, and the major portion of that whieh is settled has become known only in recent ',',  years; ;   j . ���������  '    .- ������.  Canada has a population of less than eight* billions, and an area greater than that of the ;;  United States. Vast areas, which formerly were 'considered barren wildernesses, have been <���������  proven to be rich agricultural lands and are rapidly becoming the homes of a sturdy race of'',!  prairie farmers. Northern Ontario has millions qf acres of the most fertile lands which have ';;  only been discovered within the last few years, and*'hich will, within a generation, be settled with ' >  a population of thrifty home-builders. ] !!  British Columbia, the sea of mountains, also pi proving to the world that while it is a "sea !!  of mountains" in very truth, it is, at the same tone,, equally great in respec^of valleys. Be- ; ���������  tween those vast ranges of hills there slumbers beautiful valleys, rich in agriculturalj^td horti- ;;  cultural possibilities, water-powers unequalled in ������oy other part of Canada, are these. Mineral <'  deposits, so extensive as vto justify one in saying tbat they are inexhaustible. Timber, fisheries ! I  and other natural resources undreamed of a few yeas ago. ;;  Then there is the great Northland, the Peace.-River and the Mackenzie and their tributary';  valleys, which we areonly "suspecting" of being|arable but of which government statistics tell '>'>  us, is of equal value as a wheat growing area, to that of Saskatchewan. All this implies reaponai- \',  bility. A slight indication of the problems of the future Canada, is given in the Northwest today. |;  In the pastseven months 300,841 immigrants have landed in Canada, 200,701 from across the seas, ; >  of all nations, and 100,140 from the United States. Efy far the larger portion of these have located ��������� '<  in the Northwest, In the decade 1901-1911,: Alberta's, population increased .500 per cent, Sas- |;  katchewan over 500 per cent and Manitoba over 90 per cent (owing to its restricted area, Mani- ;;  toba could not equal her sister Provinces, but now her- boundaries are extended one is safe in > '<  saying that the increase in4hat Province will equal that of the other two). ',',  Therefore one of Canada's greatest problems is, and will continue to be for generations to !  come, how to absorb this vast increase in population.  This immigration might be divided into three classes���������that from the states to the south���������that '.',  from the British Isles���������that coming from foreign countries. ' \ ��������� ���������  The first of these, from the States, is an uihisu_lly high class of settler, intelligent, comfortably ''  well off, and born to the type of life they will necessarily have to lead in their new home. In every '.',  respect they are a "desirable" immigrant, and will require little "absorption."  There is one char-.;;  acteristic of this people, which must be considered���������they bring to their new home all the traditions, *  customs and commercial habits of their native land and never once think of readjusting their ideas t  to that of the new.   By virtue of their aggressive intelligence they immediately assume a position %  of influence in the newly settled districts, and are a-Very potent factor in moulding the national ���������  ideals of the.foreign-speaking immigrant, with the ^inevitable result���������there is growing np in the \',  Northwest a sentiment, which is antagonistic to that of Easter*). Canada. This is not deliberately ;;  intentional on the part of our American friencUvAfcut quite what we may expect,    what we'������  must show to our immigrant cousins from the south ia���������first, that we highly appreciate his good 1'.  qualities, but at the same time must insist that p* respect our .national traditions, customs ;  and allegiances, to Canada and to the Empire., Jn our anxiety to encourage "land settlement," ���������  ���������i. ._ ���������__*���������_-_ ^ _ _^ * ���������_-._*.. |or ^eBX 0j 0fj������(j--tj[*4|lg o- frightening away \  good motto in,their' country which would ���������!!  ie here, which is: "If you comt to onr coun-  ���������  opt our national ideaJs"-*--a very good motto. . ���������  resent ho difficulties-hs ^a'r as assimilation ',',  some of us are inclined to suppress our national i  these most .desirable settlers.   The Americans '  apply as well in Canada, and to them when they  try to earn your living, thou become a citton  ,. _ .The���������_ee������nd-elass-���������those froift-tm* tWtttltl  is concerned, but with them it is a question of adaptation. The new conditions, climate, customsV;  and manner of life is so entirely different that many are ruined in the first few years, cThere are ','���������  thousands of cases where English immigrants, with enough money to start "them off well as farm  ers, have been fleeced by land sharks, machinery salesmen and careless advice giveu as a joke. ;  These people come to our great Northwest without the slightest idea of what they are to contend < ���������  with. They know little about farming, and nothing about prairie farming. They have no laea ;;  how to protect themselves against the colcl winters, nor do they know how to best lay out their ;;  small capital so as to win from the prairie the first crop which will start them off on their new ���������������  life. ' \:  What is required to get the best out of the British immigrant is, to provide for his instruction ;;  ���������to help him adjust himself to his new life���������safe guidance and advice as to what is required *���������  to properly cope with the new conditions. He is a good settler if given a chance, and we  should make every effort to encourage and help the British settler. At no distant (date this class  will be required to "leaven" the vast foreign immigration, or we shall find that our great national  ideals are lowered, and tbe glory of our civilization and traditions have suffered, from the preponderance of foreign influence.  What shall be said of the third division, or those coming from foreign countries f They come ������>  from Northern Europe, from Southern Europe, from Asia Minor and Asia. Those from Southern '.'.  Europe and Asia are the most numerous and present the greatest problem. ;;  It has long been well known to students of social science that Southern Europeans produce'"������;'  the greatest number, per capita, of criminals against the person of any section of the civilized 1',  world. A careful perusal of our criminal statistics will prove to any doubting person that, in ;;  our own country at least, this is more than true. Again, these immigrants have a strong tendency  to "drift" to the great industrial centers. They segregate, or hire together in "foreign quarters." Under the present system of dealing with this class of immigrants, it would take many  generations to even eliminate their most conspicuous national traits and in place of absorbing or  assimilating them we would find that we had only succeeded in perpetuating their various  national peculiarities. One alarming feature in dealing with this phase of the problem, is the constant demand of railway contractors for "dago labor," ostensibly because they are better workmen  but in reality because they prefer the American system of securing large batches of these laborers  and dealing with them through a "boss" rather than as individuals and further because they will  live under circumstances which are impossible with British, American or Canadian labor. This  should not be continued���������it is altogether unnecessary and must be stopped. We want railroads  and other public and semi-public works ,but not at the expense of our national life.  By providing "human" accommodation, fair wages and the chance *to acquire some land in  the, new country through which the road passes, the railways could secure ample good labor from ���������������  the British Isles, or Northern Europe. They could build their roads and settle the land at the same '.'.  time.   They would not need to fleece the men of doctors'  fees,  for which  they give  little  or no ;;  (Continued en Pag* 8)  ',***,* * * * |. IHI Hi!

They carry a magnificent stock of general household  furniture and supplies, including dining room, bedroom and kitchen furniture, carpets, mattresses, bed springs,  oilcloth and linoleum, floor matting,  sofas, curtains, blankets, china, etc.,  etc. Their prices challenge all honorable competition, and they sell on tbe  easy payment plan, viz., one-third cash  and the balance in small weekly, fortnightly or monthly payments.  The East End Furniture Company  has been established at 544 and 552  Victoria Drive, corner Keefer Street  (end of the Harris Street car line),  nearly tne year and a half. It eujoys  a constantly growing custom, and we  believe the East End will do better  by "Patronizing Home Trade" iban  down-town merchants, who pay sky-  high rents and therefore must make  exborbitant profits to even pay their  rents. Thesis gemlemen also do all  kinds cf upnolstering, re-polishing and  repairing of furniture, etc. They carry a splendid stock of window shades,  and in fact "everything" in the household furnishings line.  Messrs. J. White and J. J. Lennie  are liberal merchants to ,deal with.  They believe in the "live and let live"  policy and their phenomenal growth  is a demonstration that the East End  residents appreciate them and their  business policies. Mr. J. J. Lennie is  a new partner with Mr. J. White. They  united their forces as a commercial  team last October, and are doing well  together. For everything in furniture  the East End Furniture Company can  supply you.  BROWN   REALTY  CO.

F. McLEOD'S HARDWARE STORE.  A Flourishing East End Enterprise,  5*0 Victoria Drive���������-Big 8sle On to  End of Month.  ��������� In noting in this special article the  various business people operating en  Victoria Drive, we take pleasure in  referring at length to Mr. F. McLeod's  General Hardware Store. He has been  in the East End at 540 Victoria Drive  one year, and a half, and formerly  was in the same line clerking. He  carries everything usually found in a  high class and well-stocked, up-to-date  general hardware store, including  hardware, stoves and ranges, paints,  ails, and house furnishings, etc. He  'oaves no stone unturned to secure  the best and to sell st very moderate  prices consistent with up-to-date and  hop< rable methods of doing business.  Personally. Mr. McLeod is a young  man of pleasant address and full of  vim and go, and we predict for him a  splendid mercantile career. He is well  up in his line, and works hard to  achieve surcoss, and he is doing his  share to build up and hold trade at  the end of the Harris treet car Une  on Victoria Drive. We believe firmly in the policy, "Patronize, Home  Trade," end the residents of the East  End, we venture to say, can do much  better here than down town, where  the merchants pay about six prices to  landlords for rents, and then have to  make it up off their customers. Build  up your own locality by patronizing  the local merchants is the twentieth  century motto, and no store in Vancouver, we venture to say, will use  ycu better than F. McLeod's.  The big sale which has been running for the past few days at thiB  store, will continue to the end of the  month. A saving of from twenty-five  to fifty per cent, is made' by buying  now, while the sale is on. Remember  the name and place.  Everybody rs doing it-Who'sdoin^it?  We a<re doing it-Doing what ?

Briefly the plan is to create a fund  by subscription from motor car and  accessory manufacturers and dealers, each subscription to equal 1 per  cent of one year's gross earnings of  the subscriber. These subscriptions  will be divided into three or five annual payments, as decided by n national committee to be later elected  by the subscribers.

A  dismembering policy must not take  hold of heir efttaene All we arew and  shall eventually be, is a direct outcome of what Great Britain has jjone  for us. She has sent us the best of  her sonsr strc-g; hardy, self-eaerific-  ing pioneers, who considered no sacrifice too; great If it only tended toward  the greatness' of the country they  fought to- make a country. Armand  Lavergne's statement that **Canada  owes- nothing' to the old land"' he dabbed' ac "absolutely false." Canada, he  held, owed everything to the old land.  Itt the last six years Oreat Britain had  provided 1900,000,000 ln money for de-  veDfrpntent purposes alone. Commercially and Industrially if In no other way,  Canada owed the mother country an  unpayable debt. In her fnstltnttona  alsc.  ' "Nowhere on God's green earth are  sueh democratic institutions and prin*  ciplee In evidence aa here,** continued  the speaker.  "A united citizenship** was the second great principle towards this end.  . The American immigrant came in  for much praise and some crticlsm.  He was a desirable cfttsen, hut hardly  adaptable enough. He had become im*  pregnated with the Idea that American���������so called���������Institutions were the  last word in all tkat was democratic.  They were prone to Cite their ideas  too flagrantly. They were*wroh**. Nowhere was the democratic' Idea,' of  government so aptly seen and practiced as in this country ot Canada;  These people, when they came in,,  should be shown that as they bad  come to Canada to live and proiper  in, so should they take hold of Canadian ideas and principles and preach  them, not their own. The speaker parallelled American institutional Idea*  with Canadian and found the former  to be sadly lacking in democratic principles and modernism. When an American had this explained to him tua  was quick to grasp the fact that he  was wrong and In the majority ot  cases acknowledged this. These people  formed the leavening influence to, the  great chaos in ideas the foreign; infinx  brought. These latter people know ot  no democratism. They are- mere aheep.  Any man forceful can bend ttam to his  well. That is why the speaker advocated a preliminary examination prior  to their being given the franchise. Aa  it was they knew hot what they were  doing when they marked their ballots.  It was merely a case of doing what  they were told to do by tome possibly  unscrupulous personality.  Asiatic immigration  The Asiatic Immigration was the  vital point In the speaker's address.  He sounded a note of grave warning  in this regard, especially when he re*  ferrtd to the Japanese Invasion. They  had complete control of tbe fisheries  in British Columbia. They were slowly  buttoirely gaining a greater control In  other industries. Some of tbe cleverest and most subtle among the army  and navy, even of Japan's hordes in  the country, were gaining knowledge  that would eventually prove disastrous  to Canada's welfare should the two  countries ever clash. He told of incident after incident where this tact was  a known truth. Doctors, captains, lawyers and other educated lay and military men were working as common  laborers in the: coast towns and cities.  Tbey were making charts of every in*  dention of coast line, and taking  sounds of all waters bordering tbe  partial sea girt province. They adapt  themselves readily to their surroundings and environment. Tbey had covetous eyes on the country. With their  80,000,000 of people, their strategic  points in the Pacific and at no great  distance from British Columbia they  were a factor to be counted on, and  one which the entire Dominion must  safeguard itself agalns.  The Hindus were equally a menace.  Utterly immoral and degenerate, they  should not have been allowed Into the  country at all. They were not allowed  to vote in tbelr own country. Tbe reason waa that were they given tbe  franchise tbe country would be plunged into a bloody chaos. The crossing of  the Asiatic with the European had  been proven to be deteriorating in its  result. , The type produced had proved lower than tbe white and black  both. They should not be allowed to  intermarry with Caucasians. Rather  Bee to it that in assimilation a higher  standard of type is produced. Develop  slowly rather than quickly so the development Is only toward a higher  plane.  8ound Commerce.  "A Sound Commercial policy for the  Whole Country," was the third principle involved. Not an East and West  policy, but a united policy. Packing  houses and granaries and huge mills  and manufactories should be built and  upkept. (  The West would give to the East  what the West had in surplus and  vice versa. The exorbitant freight  rates, were all that was keeping the  idea from seeing consummation right  now. When the Panama Canal is opened Western Canada will be the highway for the carrying of the great  quantities of merchandise that will  flow through the entire country and  to our neighbors to the south. He  continued:  "Common, Social, Education and  Ethical Standards Must be Paramount," was the fourth great principle. Differential education, the  speaker said to be very bad, very bad.  "What do children know of dogma?"  he continued. "We are not putting  into the minds of our children germs  of hatred and an unnational oneness  idea that is deleterious to the best  ideas of what is right and best. When  some of our children go to one school  and some to another these different  ideas���������not only germinate���������they take  root and produce antithetical ideas  that work at cross purposes; not towards the building up of one great national idea. We do not need separate  schools. There should be but one  school, and with one idea: the solder-  I t"t IIII 111 I MI I l"WM������W  ill  fXtBX'.

Mount Pleasant L. O. L. 1842 held a  "Mock Trial���������Breach of Promise," on  Thursday evening, Nov. 21, in K. P.  Hall, Mt. Pleasant, instead of their  regular meeting. The evening, which  proved to be an exceedingly pleasant  one, was arranged in aid of the new  brass band. When Alderman ^T. S..  Baxter, who made an able chairman,  took the chair the hall was packed to  take solo parts during the evening.  Fine Organ Installed at Mt Pleasant.  At the present time there is being installed in Mount Pleasant Methodist  Church one of the finest pipe organs  ever brought to Vancouver. Two years  ago the officials of the church decided  to have the very latest triumph in organ building. Much time and care  was spent in drawing up the specification, so that the completion of this instrument win represent the most ad*  , vanced work ln   organ   construction,  the doors, many being unable to even:During the last three weeks Mr. Wal-  iM.

Then followed  a short musical program, followed by  the most important part of the evening's enjoyment, the "Mock Trial,"  Bro.

One of the brightest and best object  lessons ever given the citizens of Van*  couver, and thex stranger within) her  gates, is the demonstration of home  manufactures being carried on all this  week under the auspices of tha Retail  Grocers' Association,, through the medium of their "Made in B. C." week.  Subject of universal comment has  been the display of home manufactured goods in hundreds of handsomely dressed grocery windows.  The plan of this week's educative  programme, by way of attractive .object lessons; Is largely due to the inlt-'!  latlve of a forfoer Mount Pleasant business man, Mr. P. W. Welsh, who was  also at one time president of the Retail Grocers' Association. Mr. Welsh  graduated years ago from "The #111"  aad from the pioneer, grocery firm of  Welsh & Nightingale, to the broader  field of down-town business," and is  now the head of the London Grocery  Co. .Ltd. Mr. Welsh is this week seeing the plan suggested first by bim  carried out In a sweeping1 success.  The most interesting feature of the  week to, many of the friends of the gro-  'cere and their employees is the contest  ! for tbe prises awarded tor the best  'windows.    Several substantial prizes  ���������are given.   The city has been divided  ��������� into  three  districts,  and  in  each a  first, second and third prize is offered  for the best window dressed by an  employee, of the shop in wbicb it is  set.   In nd case can an employer aid  in the design or display.   The goods  exhibited are exclusively "Made in B.  C." and the manufacturers have assisted by giving the clerks competing  the choice of any goods desired.   A  sweepstakes prize is open to ail com*  petitors, in addition to the    district  prizes.  Many of the shop windows on Main  Street, Broadway, Granville Street  South, Fraser Avenue, Westminster  Road, Commercial Drive and other  suburban thoroughfares would do  credit to larger 'shops.

Pleasant  _very    one    connected    with    the  scheme is confident of being able to j feet from the .ground.  "Big Ben," London's most notable  clock, is regarded in the British metropolis as almost a national institution, and considerable worry has bean  caused because Its voice has recently  become bracked.  "The bell has ueen badly used," said  Mr. W. W. Starmer, at the Royal Institution, "as nothing but. serious lit*  jury/could result from the cutting of  the holes in the sound bowls. It was  said that the holes were cut to ascertain the extent of the crack. The holes  snd the crack, apart from any other  consideration, seriously marred the  tones of the bell."  The Sphere has published a unique  view of the tall tower at Westminster  in which "Big Ben" has its home. No  architects' drawing or engineers'  plans were available for the artist's  assistance, so that the drawing had to  be made. from personal'��������� Inspection bf  each part of the tower. For the pur*  pose; of explaining the contents of the  tower thoroughly to the reader a sectional treatment has been adopted. The  whole of the side facing the north has  for the purpose .of this drawing been  removed. The most salient features  thus revealed is the great weight and  pendulum shaft, one side of which is  formed by the outer wall, the other  sides *eing internal walls. The various compartments and store rooms  ��������� shown run around three sides of the  tower.  Starting at the bottom of the teweer  the presence of some huge wool cushions has to be noticed. These are ta  {.preserve the weights or- pendulums  from breaking in case they should fall  The fire indicated is really separated  from tbe cushions. Its purpose is to  create a draught and clarify the air in  the shaft.  Climbing upward one reaches the  waiting room for members of Parliament's attendants and - chauffeurs.  Above are the rooms of tb.e sergeants  fat arms. Above these two stories 1b  tbe Parliamentary prison room, to  which Parliamentary, offenders are  liable to be sent. The next floor is  empty: The floor above is occupied**oy  a store of mouldings and stone carvings used for storing the Gothic embellishments of the tower. The floor  above is a. model room. The two succeeding stories are at present empty.  Mounting still higher, one reaches  the gas and electricity meter room.  Then a few steps take one into the'  clock room itself.  Doors communicate with the bell  chambers. Above the clock room, is  the belfry. In "which hang "Big Ben"  and the quarter bells. The stairs from  this belfry lead to the lantern from  which the rays of light penetrate the  city's gloom when the Houae is sitting.  Tbe Uluminant in this case consists of  six gas "Jets. A magrilficient view of  Westminster is obtained from this gal*  lery.  Here are some striking facts about  "Big Ben":  It is the largest striking, most powerful and most accurate public clock  in the world, the fliBt blow on "Big  Ben" at each hour denoting correct  time.

Tbe  Latin-Americans In nearly every nation bave accepted his propaganda  blindly. Tbey honestly believe that  the United States, land-hungry, eager  for conquest, intends sooner or later  to annex and colonize the whole  world of Mexico, Central and South  America. Once president of Mexico,  Esteral would consolidate his empire  of 'mutual defense and vested rights'  ln less than two years. Then be would  jsell his alliance to Japan or Germany.  ���������Both are eager to gain bis friendship,  [and both are making him tremendous,  [offers. He Is financing his revolution  1 with Japanese and German gold. Japanese and German spies swarm all  {over this country, bribing, scheming,  j working to gain the secrets of defense  {and military policy. Japanese and  'German agents also try to block every  avenue by which certain messages  could be conveyed to Gomez Esterai  [If those messages reach him I bellevi  bis dreams will be shocked into sua  den awakening, and a great light win  burst upon hirn."  "How���������how do you mean, colonel?"  Brockett questioned.  "Because"���������and the old soldier's  *_gjdg_fAlrjyJ?urned their way through;  the very souls of Ms young auditors���������-;  "because both Japan and Germany  have every plan arranged by which  Esteral Is to be deceived, betrayed,;  and made a catspaw.

Sonora and Lower California as part  of the Pacific empire whicb the  mikado is to rule. These schemes  are aU matured, and the execution of  tbe plans would be commenced as  soon as the war was over. In other  words. Gomes Esteral, dreaming of a  great Latin nation, Is to be awakened  by tbe shock of finding himself tbe  tool of a great land-grabbing con*  ���������piracy, and his new-formed nation  tbe prey of Germany or of Japan."  . "And," asked Solano, eagerly, "bow  do we figure In this drama of the nations?*'  ������������������You have quite a part to play,"  mild the old soldier.

Esteral, I think. Is a man  of rather more than ordinary brains,  and the evidence that will be set before blm will give blm a sudden ahock  nnd a complete awakening."  "I think I can understand now,"  aald Brockett "Why ao many attempts  were made to rob aa oa tbo rood."

But he does speak (or your  Church, and ycu dare not openly call  him a liar, and ask him to stop writ-  (ing like a madman, your "infallible"  Roman Church cannot speak fallibly  to the world; aad therefore from its  standpoint this "Fountain .Head of  Rcmish orthodoxy"-, is speaking your  inward mind. If so, where Is your  tolerance of spirit' and of private Intent?     ���������  ���������: '��������� Now for the Two Master Problem:  j You tell us that a Roman Catholic,  : loyal to the Pope. can at the same  time be true to King George of England. You teach that your people,  and especially the priests, still more  particularly your cardinals, are able  to properly serve the King of England and the Pope of Rome.  Let us look at this impossibility for  a moment.  King George stands publicly, officially and as the Head of the Old British Anglican Church, for the reading  of the Scriptures, and for the avowed  principle that the Scriptures are the  final and sufficient guide of a man's  duty in all religious matters, when  aided by the teaching of the Holy  Spirit. This is fundamental with him  in his official and kingly position,  which he could not hold unless, he so  teach. Now, let us see what your  Romish Church says: "The supremacy of the Bible aa a source of faith  Is unhiBtorical, Illogical, fatal to the  virtue of faith, and destructive of unity.''  This is taken from the "Catholic  Encyclopaedia" and Is sufficiently  clear to be easily grasped. The King  says officially the Scriptures are supreme, while the Pope says they are  not., Here Is an instant clash, and no  amount of talk or sophistry can do  away with the fact  Now, here is the point of conflict  The Pope says that he, the Pope. Is  the sole authority in teaching the Intent of the great God concerning man,  and King George says: You are wrong  Right Reverend Sir, the Scriptures are  the final and highest authority.  Now. Reverend Bonner, can you  obey the King and the Pope In this  matter? Can any man? Can the Arch-,  bishop of the city in which you lire  do so? This is a present and continued conflict of official authority.  You and your co-adjutors say that  the Pope claims supremacy only In  spiritual matters. This you say. at  times, and publicly where It will do  the most good. But let me ask: How  about the above conflict between King  George and the pope? It Is not purely a matter of spiritual or religious  authority, that of Holy Bible or Holy  Faakl.yy :'y.yy-,.  Now here is what the "Western  Watchman" saya: "The Churoh In the  United 8tatee,. from the cardinals  down to the humblest laytoan, le loyal  to Rome. What the Pope says Is law  In this country." Here you have It.  Tbe Pope ts the final lawgiver. Not  Taft, or Wilson, or tho Senate, or tha  Congress, or all combined. Just the  Pope, a foreigner at that! 8imply an  Italian priest voted 'JtoftUIJMe" by a  oomptny of fallible man, whose helpless tool he is Unlay.  But let as go a little farther ana  ste tbt tint spirit of your Roman  Church, on Ita political and machine  side, r would gladly say some good  words about Its truly Christian 4eeda  oh many occasions when It was tree  from machine and political control.  But to tht work wbtls you are patiently listening:  ���������'We of the Catholic Church are  ready to go to the death for the  Church. Under God, she is the su-  oreme object of our worship. Tell us  that we think more of tbe Church  than we do of the United States; of  course we do. Tell us wt are Catholics first, and Americans or Englishmen afterwards; of course we are.  Tell us, in a conflict between the  Church and the Civil Government, we  take the side of the Church; of course  we do. Why, if the Government of  the. United States were at war with  the Church, we would say to-morrow,  "To hell with the Government of the  United States"; and if the Church and  all the governments of the world were  at war, we would say. "To hell with  all the governments of the world."  Now then, Reverend Father Bonner,  when this is the voice of your infallible Church, (and it Is), how can you,  a loyal son of the Church, be loyal to  King George, who teaches differently  from your highest mouthpiece of that  Church, to wit, your Pope? Can you  truly serve two masters? You and  your people at times pretend you can,  but Jesus says you '-cannot."  When that Pope is crowned he hears  words which when translated into English mean this: "Receive the tiara  adorned with three crowns, and know  that thou art father of princes and  kings, Ruler of the World, vicar of our  Saviour Jesus Christ on earth." If  he be ruler pf this "world," then he  is Ruler of Great Britain, and if so.  King George is not our Ruler. He  must be a poor weak sham.  Now, Reverend Sir, I must press  ycu a little" more closely to history  and your, Church claims. Read this  from Pope Boniface VIII. in bis Buil  Unam Sanctam: "We learn from the  words of Gospel that in his poue.' are  two swords, the spiritual and the temporal. . . . Beth, therefore, are in  the power of the Church, the sni ritual  sword and the material sword; the  latter to be used by the Church, the  former for the Church; the one in the  hand of the priest; the other in tne  hands of kings and soldiers, but wiled-  ed according to the will and sufferance of the priest."  "Now it is fitting that s,word should  be subordinate to sword, and that the  temporal power should be subject to  the spiritual power." '  This is strong and plain withal. It  shows that there is a definite claim'  that the Pope, the College of Cardinals  and the whole Church combined a3  one organization, bolds both spiritual  and temporal power.  Now, to return .to my first easily  understood illustration: King George,  the British Parliament, composed of  the fiords and Commons*, and the  whole Empire as officially speaking,  say and affirm that the Civil, or material sword belongs to King George  in his official and representative capacity. But Pope Boniface calls King  George a liar.      Necessarily,  and in.  WEST CANADA NEWS LETTEfc  fact, King George must call Boniface ' *)*****<*******************4***************t*t*4*****4*  a liar, \ $ ���������      r  But you, sir, .must take sides with  X  Pope Boniface.   You cannot dodge the  Issue.  The above Bull, Unam Sanctam, was  approved by the fifth Lateran Council.  The Vatican Council of 1870 passed a  decree that gave this Bull validity  with the Romish Church.

JOSEPH CLARKE.  Per Chas.  McHardy,  agent  Pated November 18th, 1912.  29-11-12-24-1-13  The Fbrestery Branch of the Department of tbe Interior has had a  number of parties out during the past  season continuing the examination of  the unexplored districts to find out  the supply of timber on Dominion  lands, and determine the lands which  should be reserved permanently for  timber purposes. These parties are  generally in charge of graduates of  the Forest School of the University ot  Toronto. Tbe work for the season is  almost completed, and the parties are  now returning from the field. Two  of the'parties have already reported.  Mr. S. H. Clark examined during  the past season the district lying  north of Lac La BIche and east of the  Athabaska River In Northern Alberta,  which Is along the route which was  proposed for the Alberta' Great  Railway. The season  was, and, as the district was found  to be covered largely by muskeg, the  examination of It was difficult. The  muskegs were almost Impassable, and  the few trails that werefound are in  poor condition. In spite of the condition of the trails quite a large number of people were going into Fort  McMurray to locate.  It had been reported that there waB  considerable large timber north of  *Lac La-Bache, but the examination  brought out the fact, which has too  frequently been the cvase, that the  quantity of large timber is small and  only in a few scattered areas. There  is, however, a large quantity of immature spruce --and jack pine hich,  ���������which needs only protection from fire  to be a valuable crop for pulpwood or  lumber. The land is generally covered with muskeg, and the soil, nowhere first class, becomes lighter and  sandy towards the east, where is consists of sandy jack pine ridges with  muskeg' between. The undralned  muskegs make the timber growth  slow, but the whole district is more  suited for timber growth than for  agriculture.  One night a couple of travelling  salesmen arrived in a small Kansas  town and found the hotel crowded. Not  a room was to be had.       ������,  "I bate to disacommodate you,  gents," said the hotel proprietor,  "but even the pool table's occupied.  But, say, see that old church across  the street? I bought it to build a  new hotel on the site. 'If you don't  mind, you can go over tbere and sleep  In the pews. They're upholstered, and  they ain't bad slfeepin* at nil."  The tired pair decided to try it.  About one o'clock in the morning  the hotel proprietor was awakened by  the loud clanging of the church bell.  He got up, roused the porter, and told  bim to find out the trouble. In a few  minutes the porter came back. "Well?"  asked tbe owner, excitedly. "Party In  pew 26 wants a gin rickey," was the  answer.  FOR.  CHRISTMAS  A handsome line of goods suitable for  Christmas gifts are now on display.
