 shed in the Interests of Vancouve  VOLUME IV  ji-. ���������������������������������������������������*���������  THE FIRST CO-OPERATIVE  H. H. STEVENS, M. P., **&"**&&&  "*0f**  VANCOUVER, British C4lumb  \At Elmswell, Suffolk, at the end of March, Mr.  Frank Goldsmith, M.P., formerly opened the first  co-operative bacon factory in England. The foundation stone of the factory was laid on May 30,  1911, by the Marchioness of Bristol, the site occupying six acres.  The building is 240 feet long. With the present  facilities 750 pigs a week can be dealt with, and  the accommodation can be easily increased to deal  with 1,000 head of swine, if necessary. The work  is entirely performed upon one floor, thus dispensing with a considerable amount of haulage  and handling and materially reducing the cost of  labor.  The membership already exceeds 300 and it is  expected that it will be doubled before very long.  Each farmer covenants with the society to supply  a certain number of hogs per annum, and the  society undertakes to pay him the full market  " price of the hogs, estimated on the basis of the  four principal markets in the country. The farmer  will also receive a bonus calculated upon the  grade and bacon curing value of the hogs, encouraging the improvement of the breed itself.  Each member is allotted a certain number of  ., ������1 ($4.87) shares in the society according to the  number of hogs he has agreed to supply.  The King has expressed  his interest  in  the  . scheme; and his willingness t������> purchase the first  sides of bacon manufactured!^ the Society.  The Co-operative Bale of Figs in Kogland.  TKe Eastern Counties Farmers' Co-operative  Association, which has its headquarters at Ipswich, in the County of Suffolk, has been remarkably successful not only in the purchase of requirements but in the sale of produce and livestock (notably pigs) on behalf of its members.  Suffolk, it appears, is the county in which, in  proportion to the area, the largest number of pigs  are bred and fattened.  It did not, at the time the  . lecture was given, possess a single bacon factory  audit is somewhat far from the'thickly populated  , centres of industry. The marketing of pigs, there-  forepresented some considerable difficulty.  Prior  . to the formation Of the Eastern Counties Farmers'  Co-operative Asacwatiou; the greater number of  pigs reared in Suffolk were either lent to local  auction sales and bought by dealers or agents of  the bacon ewers, ,br despatched to: salesmen at  Birainghanv to be dispose^ of to the test advantage, or sold direct to private customers. ,  '' Soon after the formation, of the association -j-  -J904 the at*eation-of the Board of^fansgfcmeut  Waa drawn to.the low prices which were then  being received for pigs and to the existence of  strong 'rings' amongst the dealers who attended  the local B^e-j., A sub-committee was formed to  consider the best meant of dealing with the situation and it was eventually decided to start an  '��������� agency business in connection with the associa-  e tion.   An expert was engaged, who-was paid a  fixed salary and a commission on the sales, and  \\   the members were invited to place their pigs in  v bis hands for disposal to the most suitable buyers.  Farmers having pigs to dispose of, inform the  manager either by letter or by personal intimation.   In order to meet the farmers personally, the  manager or his assistants attend the various local  markets.   The number of pigs ?and the approximate dead weight of each are entered by the manager on a specially printed sheet, known as the  'visible supply sheet.'  In the course of a few days the manager visits  the farms and inspects the pigs. If he happens  to have an order for a truck load of pigs at a  price which the farmer is willing to accept, he  carefully selects and marks those suitable for the  particular buyer and instructs the farmer when  they are to be put on rail. If he should not  happen to have an order just then, he takes particulars of the weight and fatness, and arranges a  sale as soon as possible.  The association both buys-and sells by Hive  weight, or buys by live weight and sells by dead  weight, according as the members may prefer. In  either case, the pigs are weighed on a weighbridge  at the loading station, and when the returns of  the weights are received, the wastage from live  to dead weight is recorded for future reference.  Payments for live weight pigs are, at the present time, sent by post on the first Monday after  delivery, and for dead weight pigs as soon as the  returns are received; if this should be unavoidably delayed a cheque on account is posted. The  commission charged by the association is as follows: up to SAr($19.46) value, 12 cents per pig;  over tt ($19.46) value, 24 cents per pig; sows, 60  cents. These charges have been found sufficient  to cover expenses and make a small profit.  As some of the consignments have to travel long  distances to the buyers, it sometimes happens that  a pig dies on the journey. About two years ago  an insurance scheme was started whereby, for  the small payment of one penny per pig, the association undertakes to make good any loss that  occurs in transit by rail.

Business houses are making ready to accommodate the multitudes of prospective buyers; the  people are on the lookout for the best bargains;  advertising is resorted to as\a means of guiding  buyers to the things they may need.  The ^western Call is rapidly gaining the attention of both the buyer and the seller, hence its  popularity as an advertising medium.  SALBCOlf FISHING.  Hon. J. W.

The approaching election will test the loyalty  of Protestants and Catholics to their avowed principles. Leaders of the Roman Catholic Church  have resolved to place certain trusted members  of their body: on the school board of this city.  Their"purpose may be safely inferred from their  pronounced opposition to ourumblic school system and their declared purpose to introduce  their peculiar church doctrines and polity into  our schools at the earliest possible opportunity.  In every country they are unyielding enemies of  popular education. They should be watched  with lynx-eyed alertness. Here, as in national  affairs, eternal vigilance is the price of liberty.  CHIEF CHAMBERLIN.  We regret to learn that Chief Chamberlin -of  the Vancouver Police Force has resigned his office for a position with the C. P. R. The city  cannot afford to lose an efficient and trusted officer, especially now, when thugs, thieves, gamblers, white slave fiends and general worse-than-  nothings are endeavoring to worm themselves into  our confidence and body politic. The man who  succeeds Chief Chamberlin will have a hard task  but may distinguish himself. The opportune time  for cleaning up the city is now here.

Stevens, M.P.  for Vancouver, was the speaker at the Canadian  Club banquet here tonight. His address was on  the subject of fusing Eastern and Western Canada  into one whole.-; the building up of a national spirit  that would tend towards the best and greatest  country. He gave a brief resume of the possibilities of each separate province, and said that  Ontario was outstandingly the ideal province in  the Dominion. It held to what the other provinces  held to in part.  How to bind the great parts of Canada into  one component whole was the idea he dealt with  mostly. This would be consummated only through  a national idea, a united citizenship, a sound commercial policy for the whole Dominion and a common social, educational and ethcal standard. He  declared against separate schools, and for the ������x  elusion of Asiatics.  Beautiful Art Calfndars Free, see  Fisher*8 Duag Store Ad. page 5.*!

Grandview  Grandview Ratepayers Discuss at Some  Length Mawion Park Scheme  After a very lengthy discussion, during which constant reference was made  by th various speakers to the beauties  of European city parks, the Grandview  Ratepayers' Association on Thursday  night decided they could not pronounce an opinion either for or against  the Mawson scheme of improvement  for Coal Harbor as no figures were  available as to the total cost of the  proposal.  Mr. Jonathan Rogers, chairman of  the park board, dealt at length with  the scheme for the improvement of  Coal Harbor, which tbe members of  the association criticized in a more or  less antagonistic spirit. Not that they  were opposed to the scheme ln itself,  but that they believed that more  pressing need: for the expenditure of  the money proposed to be used in improving Coal Harbor lay in the paving  of the city's streets.  _ ______.._._._....... .. . ��������� . ___���������_. >.  mailed or phoned to the editor early to insure X  IjiTi ���������_���������*_������������������_������������_>���������_'���������*r������'-'������_������i_s>%s%������%s%A������_e>**erfs������_e<_ilt������������l>lt������������l������'_^ ���������_���������  tension society of the Methodist  churches of Vancouver will be held in  Grandview Methodist church on Thursday evening, Nov. 28.

Bishop and your  Reverence are under orders from the  same pope you must agree with tbe  conclusion, and believe that our present public school system fails to give  "a thorough Catholic, education/' and  further endangers your children, to  "ETERNAL PERDITION." And your  master, Archbishop McNeil, holds the  sima view, no doubt, for the pope  permits no schism in his church  among his obedient children.  Now sir, here Is whar* we land in  this matter: II yon and the Archbishop and any tools, (under the name  of Roman Catholic Trustees), yon may  ���������elect to interfere with the Vancouver schools, mean aartbinf by **<*****  effort*, then ti MUST BE TO AVOID  TH* "ETBRNAt PERDITION"  ABOVE MENTIONED, am) to GIVB  "A THpROUOH CATHOLIC |SPUCA-  TION," as the Bishop of Victoria alms  at.  I say here and now to the Vancou*  ver public, beware of such men and  such teaching. The DISRUPTION of  our public school system ts aimed at  and nothtnf lees. This I ������h������ll now  show in another way. And you. Reverend Mr. Bonner, be so kind as to  read patiently. Do not grow anjry and  call names. Put my letter in your  paper so that your people may have  a few sterling facts If so, some of  them will a������k you a few very pertinent questions.  Spain is overwhelmingly Roman  Catholic. The government contributes  to the church about 18,000,000 annually, and yet "tbe majority of the  Spaniards are illiterate." Here, sir,  if your church favoured education in  the long hundreds of years during its  absolute sway, then how is it that  these people are amongst the most illiterate of earth?  Portugal is another country nearly  entirely Roman Catholic. Bear ln  mind that the Protestant Reformation  never really reached Portugal. In 1555  the Jesuits secured control of the  University Centre at Coimbra. The  effects were^Berioug and permanent  Portugal sank back Into the middle  ages. In the year 1900 the illiterate  amounted to 78.6 of the population.  Volumes here! Perhaps the Portugese are thoroughly good Catholics, but their education is a myth.  Porto Rico is Roman Catholic. In  1899 over three-quarters.of those oven  ten years of age could neither read nor  write. The Bishop of Victoria would  perhaps say, "O, this is nothing, they  have a "Thorough Catholic Education.' ������������������  In Venezuela the population is nearly altogether ROMAN CATHOLIC,  and an "overhelming-majority are illiterate and practically unconscious ot  the defect." And in Vancouver, you,  Reverend Sir, dare tell the public  that you and your church favour education, other than a THOROUGH  CATHOLIC EDUCATION.  In Argentina, where the ROMAN  CHURCH IS IN POWEii., 54 per cent,  of those over fifteen years of age are  illiterate. Why is this? Are your  fellow priests of these uneducated  peoples dishonest, or are they honest  and faithful servants of the pope? If  they are honest, then you, what are  you, sir? If they in South America, in  Spain. Portugal and Italy are the direct result of your "Thorough Catholic Education" are you honestly aiming at co-operating with our system  of education, or are you under orders  to disrupt it nt first chance? Be so  kind aa to answer.  Brasll Is another ROMAN CATHOLIC countr*/ and EIGHTY per cent,  can neither read nor write. Come,  now, Reverend Father Bonner, be ao  good as to teach those ingornat millions to read and write before yoa  venture to claim that you honestly  would help the British Columbia system of public school education, than  which none better Is found on this  globe. And H is so la spite of you  and those who give you marching er*  dere.  In Japea, a land our people ao often  call pagan end heathen, bverWNUTT*  SEVEN per cent of tht obildren of  school aft are in attendence'at the  national fnMrtie schools. Reverend  Sir, your ������fe**rcfe might learn to advantage from thia nation of so-called  pagans. Tea, give me the educatloa  of tbegt ta prtfereOoe to yours.  R������v������r������*a Sir, hear mt further. Tht  above facta I give yoa from the Jteoy.  Brit. The following I give yoa htm  tht "Catholic World."

This,  again, you and your fellow priests  must adopt, and say amen to, for the  "infallible church" speaks the words  above quoted.  I am giving you these prime sayings  lest you fail to grasp them otherwise.  Moreover I wish the people of Vancouver to fully grasp the intent of  your tirades against Mr. Thomas Duke  and myself, as well as against Orangemen In general. Yes, as soon as your  political machine feels strong enough  it is, ready to use "the secular arm" to  work the church's will, "even to wa;  and bloodshed."  You seem to think that Orangemen  are bigoted. Perhaps some of them  are. This is a trait common to too  many in and out of churches and poll-  tics. But I may tell you what Orangemen stand for (in the main. They  stand for an open Bible, liberty of  conscience, freedom of worship, Justice to all men, making special mention of our Roman Catholic fellow  citizens, loyalty to the throne and  sovereign so long as the sovereign is  a Protestant. The reason for making this limitation is simple. A Roman  Catholic sovereign who is loyal to the  pope is but a mere puppet of a foreign  potentate. For such we have no  ufe or place.  You talk of toleration. See this gem  from    a    voice      in    the    "infallible  church:   "We would like to rack and 1  quarter Protestantism; we would like  jto impale it and hang it up for crows  i to build nests of;  we would  like to  tear it  with  pinchers, and  pierce  it  iwith red-hot irons;  we.would like tc  ��������� fill .it ^wifi molten lead and plunge it  into hell-fire a hundred fathoms deep."  Reverend Sir, what do you think of  this for toleration?   It is a voice from  the "Watchman."    Do you recognize  it?   Is it harmonioug or discordant to  , you?

The  Australian fruits come to Canada in  the months of May and June and there  fore do not compete with our home  products. Under such circumstances  a reciprocal arrangement would be  beneficial to both parties."  Mr. Winslow also remarked on the  somewhat interesting fact tbat the  Australian and New Zealand demand  is for apples of moderate size. He  attributes this to the fact that the  apples landed there cost about $4.00  a box, and the dealer therefore finds  it to his advantage to have the box  contain a considerable number.

The adjudicators were Dr. Gregory,  a recent visitor from Eastern Canada,  who has just purchased property In  Central Park district through Messrs.  Todrick & Co.; Mr. Van Home and  Mr. White.  While the adjudicators were considering their decision Rev. Merton Smith  obliged with a song, "Roaming in the  Gloaming on the Bonnie Banks of the  Clyde," and Mr. R. C.

Dear Sir: I listened with much interest to a lecture recently given by  Mr. Woodside In Mount Pleasant Presbyterian Church on the subject of "Ireland and the Irish."  Mr. Woodside ttook particular care  in his address to give his audience,  Ireland, its people and their habits in  their worst condition.   On the screen  we  were shown  peasant hovels  and    their inhabitants and we were told j Mr M M McKen-ie and Miss M.

But if the voters  of British Columbia are alive to the  public interests, they will see to it  that the control of the public schools  is not placed in the hands of those  who are pledged to the destruction of  this  institution.

If Mr. Woodside had taken the route  via. Dame St., which is one of the most  fashionable streets in Dublin, he could  have kept away entirely from that locality which he calls "tbe slum3."

The extreme western portion of the  island with gates opening to the full  height of the tide has not been so  badly off in this respect as has the  remainder of the island,, but even in  the west end many of the main outlet  ditches are so clogged with weeds and  Bediment as to greatly interfere with  their usefulness.

Colonel Lewis, under whose com-j  mand both the Fourth and Sixth cav-.  airy were temporarily guarding  thei  border, was a soldier of the old school,'  white of mustache and hair, erect'  and stately despite his sixty years and]  more, and possessed of but one great |  grievance in life���������that wars did noil  happen often enough to really keerj  him busy. As a boy he had blown ej  bugle when the very regiments h*|  now commanded swept into the fight',  at the battles of the Shenandoah Va!-;  ley. The war over, he had been sent  ,to Weet Point to put the finishing;  polish upon an education acquired lnr  actual campaigning. Graduating in:  1869, he had fought Sioux, Cheyennes,';  Comanch.es and Apaches; he battled;  ln twenty states, and received five!  wounds in action. In 1898 he served'  conspicuously at San Juan Hill; then,!  transferred to the Philippines, he wonj  honors and promotions ln Luzon an";  Samar. The old gentleman was now i  commanding two whole regiments andj  two batteries of light artillery���������the  largest force ever assembled under hit!  personal direction. . Counting in the'  stormy days of his bugling boyhood,}  Colonel Lewis must have taken part tnj  200 fights, and yet.be was unsatia-i  fled.  "Confound it all," he growled to his'  young aides, "there was a Roman'  once���������I forget his name, but I read-  About him at the Point���������who took]  part In one thousand battles, and per*]  sonally killed one tnousand barbarians. That fellow had some enjoyment  but of his life.

Old Hospital 8ite for City Market 8t  The suitability of the old hospital  site on Cambie street for city market  street- was discussed by members of  the market and industries committee  at a meeting yesterday afternoon. Aid.  McNeill brought the subject up by  suggesting to the committee that steps  be taken towards the establishment of  a permanent market location. Involving the removal of the present market  premises on Main street It was  agreed that the site of the existing  eity market was not all that might be  desired because at a point frequented  by pedestrians nearly all those who,  passed it being passengers on street  cars;,  Aid. McNeill urged that such an  objection did not obtain against the  old hospital site as It was* close to  tbe business center of the city.  Chairman King pointed out that in  Seattle and New Westminster farmers could drive to the marteks in their  own wagons but all produce for the  Vancouver market had to be shipped  in cars because of the distance from  the- city to tbe farms.  "Good roads will solve the difficulty," said Aid. Baxter. ������^f we ^tftfi  paved road to ChjU^wack,; toj ������M������nide;T  firms could operate motor trucks and  bring great quantities of cheap produce to the city market. The farmers  might even have their own motor  ears."  No .action was taken by the committee. The matter fill be discussed  again at some future date.  October Revenue '  It waB announced by Aid. King that  a slngleldelivery rig had been secured  for the market and operated at a  monthly cost of $125, special delivery  charges being made. This one rig  bad showed a profit of $35 per month  he said and the committee authorised  the continuance, of the service.  Market Clerk McMillan gave the  commissions for the month ot October  at $350,04 with rents amounting to  $827. For ten months ot the year the  receipts reached $11,044. It was stated  that the New Westminster market  commissions for Octiber were only  $248, for the first ten months of the  year $2436. The accounts of the city  market here showed a balance at the  end of October of $2300.  Chairman King and Building Inspector Jarrett were asked to report  upon the advisability of erecting more  permanent buildings at the rear of  the present market structure for the  purpose of giving additional storage  and display room. The Edenbank  Creamery company applied for increased space and it was thought that  an extension at the' rear could also  be made to suit the purposes of this  concern.  ERNEST SHAW, D.C.

At the main building  clubs and classes and social gatherings  of many kinds had been well attended.  Rev. Prof. Thompour is giving a very  Interesting series of lectures on the  minor prophets on Tuesday evenings  at 7:45 and this class la open to all  women desiring to attend. A few  minutes each week art given, to the  International Sunday School lesson.  A large reception was given1 In hon  or of Rev. J. W. Pedley of Toronto, a,  former pastor of the first Congregational church, who has been in the city  to take part in the ceremonies attend*  ant on the opening of tbe new church.  Mrs. H. WyHarpur, Mrs. H. O. Foster  and Miss Fewster were the hostesses  of tbe entertainment which wah held  at tbe home of Mrs. Harpur on Carde*  ro street. A large number or invitations were laa-ied to Mr. Peeper's old  i friends, wbo were thus afforded an  .'opportunity of meeting blm again, an  opportunity of which many availed  themselves.  The cheering announcement that tbe  sum of |362. bad been realised by the  Anti-Tuberculosis   Society   from -the  rummage sale held last week.   When  the low price at which all donations  are offered to tbe public Is taken into  consideration  It will  be understood  that this sum represents a great deal  of labor on tbe part of tbe members.  'When this amount was added to the  results of the Madame labadie recital  tbe society was able to make a contribution of |500 to.be applied to tbe  maintenance fund of the sanitarium.  A similar sum was given for tbe same  purpose last spring, which brings tbe  results of the year's work of the Van  couver Society up to the very creditable sum of $1000.  the  Keystone  Copyright,  Canad-s  in the  Year 1912 by  Port   Moody   Investments,  !    .

To Maintain 8trong Navy on Pacific  While Dr. P. B. Vrooman, editor of  the British Columbia Magazine, was  in England recently he became associated with prominent Imperialists  in a scheme to establish a patriotic  organization to be known as the Pacific League, formed for the purpose of  advocating the establishments of a  powerful navy in Pacific waters to be  maintained Jointly by Canada, New  Zealand and Australia. Branches of  the Leagnue are to be formed throughout the Overseas Dominions as well as  in London and all British subjects  will be eligible for meml>ershlp.
