THE MAYORAL CAMPAIGN
It is a fact, and it is patent to all careful readers, of the trend of affaire for the last forty years,
that a large portion of the Protestant Pulpiteers
have been scared out of their spiritual bdots. The
materialistic teachings of Darwin. Helmholtz, Huxley, Tyndall, Haeckel and others have frightened
too many into the quagmires of doubt, into the
subterfuges of cowardice, into the marshlands of
-tigher criticism and into the wild moorlands of
agnosticism. -yrt ���>'��� ��� '+'��������� -^
The laity are in a state of niu^st ahd1 soon will
demand a return to the Bible tod God of their
fathers, or empty the pulpits ef a lot of useless
.pulpiteers. ���'���?yM]y 'y-y'^'^x y '-'.y.
It is a fact and has something of. a strange contrast as well; that the Roinah pulpiteers are not
afraid of the evolutionists," or ' of the higher
critics. They fear them not. In fact they do not
need to fear them, for the'very good reason that
such people as higher critics- and materialistic evolutionists are outside of the Banian Church. ' The
laity therein are afraid of theifjpulpitsers, while
the scholastic laity of the Protestant people have
their pulpiteers qfcite scared^ > >' ���
But why are the Roman 'Wit*/ afraid of "their
K religious teachers! The ansvrer is simple. It is
twofold. First: The priest has his flock in leash
by means of the OoofeuriosaV Here ia an opportunity for the most perfect'system, of espionage
this round earth has ever' see_.       ;- '
The husband, the wife, daughter, son, servant,
master, and all those who in sincerity go to confession anil truly oonfssi put tiie priest in pot-
session of such power over every faunty that it
results, in many cases, in _wful possibilities. Yes,
the Roman laity are in leash through confession.
And there is,- in the second- place, s tremendous
power exercised oyer the laity by the belief that
the Pop*/has delegated to the priest poorer to send
to hell any recalcitrant member of the Holy Roman Communion.  *No, the priest fears not.

In tiie January number pf the Journal of the
Board of Agriculture' tbere appeared a sketch of
the Scawby Credit Society sjtoce its formation in
;^��95.':-; The society 1s the oldest of the ^frrfcuitirrel
credit societies now in existence in England and
Wales.
Scawby is a rural parish in Unoolnshire, about
two miles from the market town of Brigg.It has
a population of about 1,000. The acreage under
crops and grass is-2,825 acres. The land is held
in 39 holdings, of which 26 are under 50 acres
each. A number of the' small holders have other
occupations besides agriculture. There is no other
local industry.
The society follows the.Raiffeisen sytem. All
profits are carried to the reserve fund. The liability of the members is unlimited.
The principal landowner of the parish, Mr.
R. N. Sutton Nelthorpe, has been chairman of the
society since its inception. The number of members at the end of 1910 was 32, including 11 small
farmers, 3 market gardeners, 3 blacksmiths, 2
. carpenters, besides a butcher, a horse dealer, a
carter, a woodman, a miner, a foreman and two
laborers, most of whom, in addition to their main
occupation, cultivate small holdings or allotments.
To obtain working capital, the chairman, both
on his own behalf and as representating the
society, g8ve a guarantee of ��100 ($486) to the
local branch of a joint stock bank. Under this
guarantee the society obtained over-drafts. At
one time its overdraft amounted to ��94 ($457),
but for the last two years, owing to the growth of
deposits, the society has not required to overdraw its account. The society takes deposits at
3 per cent interest and at the end of 1910 its
deposits amounted to ��186 ($905).
During the past 16 years the society has made to
its members 78 loans, aggregating ��2,300 ($11,200)
and averaging nearly ��30 ($146), the smallest loan
being ��5 ($24.30 and the largest ��50 ($243.30).
At first the society charged 5 per cent per annum
interest on loans, but it soon raised this rate to
6 per cent, in order to build up a reserve fund.
When that object had been attained, it reduced
the rate three years ago to 5 per cent.
By the end* of 1910 the profits realized and'carried to the reserve fund amounted to ��65 ($316).
Upon borrowed money (for example, deposits) the
society pays 3 per cent interest and (when lent to
members) receives 5 per cent. The reserve fund,
however, being the property of the society, it
has no interest to pay upon it. Any interest
���Received upon reserve fund, therefore, is clear
���&gain to the society. This has enabled the society
y to reduce the rate of interest paid by borrowers
to 5 per cent and may eventually enable it to
reduce the interest still _urther. .
It is not yet clear who will he the contestants for the Mayor's chair at the ;;
;: fortj-coming civic elections. On the best of authority it is stated that Aid. Ram- I;
.): say will not be a candidate owing to business reasons, which announcement comes ;
; \;M a surprise to many, so there is only one name now certain, that of Aid. Baxter, j
We know of no possible man whose candidature should be more generally pop- '��
; lilar tium that of Aid. 'Baxter, both bemuse of his ability as a public servant and i \
j j his genuine worth as a citizen, and with a fair field Aid. Baxter is practically cer- ''
;; tain of election.   One favorable aspect;^f Vanc^^ is the usual ab-1 \
��! sence of party politics. Occasionally in the past some candidates have used their 1;
; party affiliation to help them in their election, but this cannot be charged to Aid. ; ���
; Baxter, who has always received strong support, as an alderman, from his friends :;
i of both political persuasions, and his present candidacy for Mayor has been heart- ��� >
; ily endorsed by influential citizens, irrespective of their party politics. It has been ;;
:. noticeable, to all close observers, that in matters of public moment between the :,
\ city and the Provincial Oovernment that Aid. Baxter has played a very successful ���;
;; and able part; hia action at alt times being free from prejudice, and while nomi- i\
; | nally a liberal in polities, he has always! jieen well received at Victoria, lately be- j;
; cause he has based his argumeute on thq. merits of the case in hand, and made no :
Appeal, pro or conV on the party Ihies. Such a course inevitably wins for a man'"!
: the confidence of his fellow citizens.

THE HIND_ PROBLEM
-fc-
has long been
������������smas*
The attitude ef H. H. Stevens, M.B, on the Hindu immigration problem has
so frequently been deliberately misrepresented, that it has been deemed advisable
to once again make a brief statement as to his views:
Becently the member for Vancouver received an anonymous letter, purporting
to come from $ member of the ^indu colony of jthis cj^y, threatening him with:'S^:
ous phyBicc4 mjwy unless he refrained from further opposition to Hindu immigration to this country. Such threats wiB have absolutely no effect as far its Vw*��
couverrsfederalwamberise*mmmm4* m^^mmmti -mcl^rtinue hir^o_itlo#
to this class of immigration.
His opposition is based upon one main reason, viz.: that the Hindu cannot
readily be assimilated and t& unsmted to our social and climatic conditions.
;;!,-No;'a:dverse criticism has been made of the natives of India because of any ;
^artic��te inferiority, nor has that been urged as a ground for objection, simply the !
^f^llill^fey^cannot be absorbed. V
Mr* Stevens has also frequently pointed out that in India the native has never
\> enjoyed the franchise, yet he asks that privilege in Canada.  It has been urged, by ;��
;��� the member for Vancouver, that the Hindu is a British subject, and as such is en- ;;
���; titled to the protection of British law and justice, but in his own country he has ;
;; never enjoyed the privileges of British citizenship and how can he justly or rea- ;
;; sonably expect to assume a privilege which has been denied him in his own country? ;:
Some claim that British rule in India is responsible for that condition. In
res^bhse to, this it is pointed out that the Caste system makes the administration
of justice in India by the natives impossible, because it is well known that a high
caste Hindu will not deal directly with a member of low caste, making a just administration impossible. Then again, is it not true that for thousands of years
India, with all its boasted intellectual development, was sunken in the most de-
Sraved social and economic condition, and tljat whatever India has today worth
aving is due to British rule?
Let the high caste Hindu with his boasted intellectual prowess, adopt the first
principles of democratic citizenship in bis dealings with his fellow countrymen,
then we shall have some grounds upon which to meet his claims to recognition as a
"citizen,.'' in India first, then elsewhere. This we will say, however, that threats
to "do bodily harm" to a member of Parliament because he refused to allow his
country to be inundated with a wave of immigration entirely unsuited to the country, will not advance their cause, and we also wish to say to a few local'Anglo-
Saxons, would-be champions of the Hindu cause, that their efforts to stir up the
natives of India to resent their exclusion with violence does no credit to anyone
worthy of the name of man.

Brilliant successes have attended the Balkan
States at every point in their heroic struggle with
the "unspeakable Turk.'' The slaughter hat
been appalling on both sides, while the suffering
of the retreating Turks is heart-rending* Our
sympathies for the defeated are lessened by our
memory of their former brutal treatment of the
now victorious forces, and by reported present
acts of wanton barbarity on the part of the fleeing army.
Ttfi defences of Constantinople are breaking
down before the irresistible advances of the allied forces. While tbe Turks are desneratelj*
fighting to resist the enemy, the Porte is making direct overtures for a cessation of hostilities.
The outlook is assuring for the Balkan States.
Turkey will be forced to surrender or accept
terms. The Great Powers favor direct settlement
between the combatants. Great Britain's policy,
announced through her representative leaders
last Saturday, being backed by naval activities,
called forth approving responses from the Triple
Alliance and changed the tone of all Europe.
The Powers are in accord, and the situation if
hopeful. The leading governments of the world
do not want war and wilhresort to any honorable
measures to conciliate and prevent it. War, like
duelling, will soon be relegated to the archive!
of history, and implements of war, like those of
torture, will be studied as relics of barbarism
and evidences pf human* progress from animal
ferocity to human kindness and intelligence.

I know an institution, one of many  scattered throughout our country, in  which there are several hundred girls  who are practically compelled to lead  partly vicious lives, because of the  paucity of their salaries. If these  girls did not sell themselves occasionally, to obtain some of the bare necessities of the life they are forced to live  in the city they could not any longer  continue to eat or sleep in comfort, or  dress themselves ln accordance with  the demands of the establishment in  which they are employed. Briefly, if  tbey were good they could not afford  to work for tjie wages they are receiving. Their employers would be compelled to engage others or close their  doors.   ���������.       ���������,  I am not prepared to enter Into an  argument as to the moral stamina of  these 'girls. The facts remain. And  their employers are men who are enrolled upon church membership lists.  I have mentioned this wretched condition because it.forcibly illustrates one  of the principal reasons fof the estrangement of. the Christian church  and labor. .. V    :> \  I think that wt' mast all admit that  tbe estrangsmeat existing between tbe  church and labor Is larfely owing to a  mlsundtrgtasdlBf cm tbs part of each  as to the ultimate aims of tbt otfctr.  These, in so far as the things of this  world art conctratd, are practically  Identical. Tbt only vital dlftrsnct  between the two lies ia tbe tact tbat  tbe vitwpoiat of tbe church is tbe  broader eae. It seeks to benefit tbose  both wltbia aad without its (old.  Labor untoalsm is directing its specific effort almost eatirely for tbe  btatflt of tbose witbia its own ranks.  Another point ef difference between  tbt two is as to what constitutes tbe  difficult!** tbat lis between them and  tbe ultimate aim, and tbeir method of  adjustment.  A huge proportion of working men  wbo do not affiliate themselves with  the churches of our country are influenced in their attitude by a well-  warranted suspicion of tbe motives tor  the presence of their employers in  such institutions! A large number of  our churches are supported by' the  money of men who, through the week,  oppress their fellows. There are very  few men of any standing at all in  society who are not members of some  church or other. 1 am not prepared  to say that this is of ncessity from  personal choice. On the contrary, I  believe that it is rather more often  from social or. family necessity.  Church membership is the tag of respectability. A large number o? our  churches might, be poverty-stricken  for a time if they had a house-cleaning  of such men, but they would receive  large accessions to . their ranks from  among the laborers who now shun  their doors.  The great and pressing need of the  church, if it is to take its rightful  place in the quieting of the social un-,  rest, is that of either converting Its  rich or of discarding them for the good  of the whole. This does not, however,  relieve the labor unionists of-their ro  sponsibility. On the contrary, it increases it. The history of the past  shows us that a large measure of the  tolerance of the world is due to  Christianity. From this tolerance alone  has come the lightening of the burdens  of the workers. The present unrest  means that the workers have glimpsed  more fully their own manhood with  its wonderful possibilities. With this  knowledge there has come also an enlarged spirituality. The workers must  aid the church in the fight against itself���������the plutocracy which threatens  it. For only through the church and  its awakening of the public conscience  can they hope to obtain more. The  two forces must work hand in hand to  so arouse public opinion to a fervor  of righteousness tbat will drive evil  from our midst.    . The church alone  can have the ultimate power to say to  the oppressor of the workers, "You  shall not aay longer dare!" and "Tou  mast!"  Gilbert Chesterton has aptly  summed ap a part of what I want to  say in tbls paragraph: "I maintain  therefore, that the common sociological" method is quite useless���������that  of first dissecting abject poverty or  cataloguing prostitution. We all dislike abject poverty, but lt might b������  another business if we began to discuss independent and dignified poverty. We all' disapprove of prostitution, bat we do not all approve of  purity., The only way to discuss the  social wil is to get ats .once to the  social ideal."  -...'���������.i  ��������� ���������.   .... .  Mr. Chesterton might not agree with  me as to what constitutes the social  ideal, bat I can only believe that it  means the application of the Golden  Rule. Toa may laugh at the possibility of epplylag the Golden Rule to  the problems of social unrest But  there will always be social unrest until  it. is applied. And there is no power  on earth that could laugh at the dictum of tbt church aad labor combined.

London, Nov. S.���������The British Prime  Minister, Rt.<Hon. H. p. Asquith, tonight made a statement on the situation in the Near East at the Lord  Mayor's inaugural banquet at the  Guildhall.   In this statement he said:  "Upon one thing I believe the  general opinion of Europe to be unanimous, that the victors aro not to be  robbed of the fruits which cost them  so dearly."  The Prims Minister referred to the  unsuccessful efforts of tho Powers to  prevent the conflict aad to the great  changes tho war had made In the map  of Europe. He said tho fall ot Constantinople might occur at any  moment, and added:  "In these anxious timet It Is satisfactory to b������ abe to announce that the  relations of England with the other  powers, without a single exception,  were never more friendly and eordial."  "The map of Europe will have to be  recast," the Premier said, "and nowhere was there a disposition to belittle the magnitudo of the struggle or  dispute the decisiveness ot the result.  Even the campaign of Austerlttz  did not produce such sudden and startling changes as the Balkan nations  have wrought in the map ot the Near  East It may be that our preconceptions and politics will bave to be reconstructed, or even go by the board  .altogether."  "England," be said, "has no direct  Interest in the exaot form which the  political and territorial redistributions  may take. The special relations of the  other powers, geographical, economic,  ethnical and historiccal, with the  scene of the conflict are such that they  eannot be expected not to claim a  voice when the time comes for a permanent settlement." .'!'���������*������������������"."'  Many Pitiful Scenes.  Constantinople, Nov. 8.���������Pitiful  scenes continue to be witnessed daily  with tbe arrival, of train loads of  wounded from tbe front. It Is significant that most of these men are  slightly Injured, which would indicate  tbat the badly wounded have small  chance of being picked up. Almost  without exception the wounded are on  the verge of collapse from exhaustion.  Many have been without attention  for days, and the majority of them  without food or water for 24 hours.  The hospitals are overcrowded, and  symptoms resembling cholera have appeared. Those suspected of having  tbe disease are isolated in a special  shed. If the dread scourge should  come to Contantinople, where already  there is so much distress and suffering among the wounded and refugees,  the consequences are too horrible to  contemplate.  It Is impossible to estimate the number of refugees in the capital. There  are fresh arrivals each day, and every  mosque in Stsmboul and the suburbs  is crowded.  War Game Played Out.  Kansas City, Nov. 9.���������"Whatever  the noise and bluster and apparent  provocation, there will never be  another great war ln Europe. The  game is played out."

Stevens, M.P., editor ot  this paper, gave an interesting forecast in Tuesday's News-Advertiser of  some of the legislation that will come  before this session of Parliament. We  quote from it:  "The Government's naval policy will  be presented before Christmas, and  there is no doubt that it will be tha  most important legislation during p.  most important session," declared Mr.  H. H. Stevens, M. P. for Vancouver, to  a representative of) the News-Advertiser. Mr. Stevens leaves for the East  on Thursday, and on November 20 will  address the Canadian Club in London,  Ont., on "East and West." The House  meets on the following day, November  21.  "I believe the naval policy which  will be presented to parliament by the  Premier, Mr. Borden, will be entirely  adequate to meet the situation," he  continued. "Without in any way intending or presuming to forecast what  the government's naval policy will be,  I believe it will provide for an emergency grant, and that the permanent  policy will be on a comprehensive  scale, in which the interests of tbe  Canadian shiubulldlng -Industries and  of Dominion commerce in general will  be thoroughly safeguarded. I am satisfied that one feature of the naval  legislation will be to provide adequate  dockage in all the big ports, which  will be available in pencefu las well as  martial times. This is a feature of the.  legislation in which this city is vitally  concerned. Vancouver must have  more docks, and have them soon  if it is to be In a position to handle  the big trade which is coming to this  coast soon. There are government  docks at Montreal, Quebec, St. John  and Halifax, and the saports on the  Pacific Coast need them just as much.  The Liberals are divided as to their  naval policy."  Among other important bills that  will be up for consideration, states Mr.  Stevens, will be a. measure to provide  for > Tariff Commission, the revision  rof the Banking Act, Better terms for  ������rit**ti Columbia and more representation for the Maritime Provinces, Assistance to Highways, and a Naturalisation Law.

Pleasant  Ladies and Gentlemen:���������  ' In April last a meeting of the Roman  Catholic Children's Aid Society was  held in the Holy Rosary Church, and  a report of the meeting was given in  tbe Columns ot the Sun next morning. The report will show that other  matters besides those affecting the  Children's Aid Society were discussed.  The last paragraph of the report ln  the Sun stated that, ''The advisability,  of having a Roman CathoKo representative on The 8chool Trustee  Board was discussed. It is likely 1hat  steps will be taken towards this end  later in the year." My purpose in  quoting the report of this meeting is  to show you that the Roman Catholic  authorities in the City of Vancouver  have .been planning: to run a candidate ' for a position on the Public  School Board; and the primary consideration with regard to the candidate's qualifications must be that  he or she is a Roman Catholic, and  willing at. all times and under any cir-.  cumstaiices to carry out "the instructions of the Church authorities. Further extracts from the Western Catholic of November Sth, show tbat steps  are-being taken towards bringing out  a Roman Catholic candidate for school  ti-urtee. The editor of the Western  Catholic has been raising a great howl  because Archbishop McNeill's request  for the use of a room in one of the  schools for the purpose of. having an  Italian priest teach- English to a number of Italians, was turned down; and  he has been taking this as an excuse  to urge Roman Catholics to unite and  place _ho or more of their co-religionists on the school board. You will See  by the extract which I have quoted  from the Suh that the plan of getting  Roman Catholic representation on the  School Board was discussed ��������� bar the  Roman Catholics of the city long before Archbishop McNeil ever thought  Of ���������skin** for the use of a room In one  of the schools for the purpose of fur  thering the aims' of the Roman Catho-  loc Church, and establishing a precedent with regard to the separation of  those differing in creed and-nations!  Ity. The subsequent location, of this  Italian ������������������* class in the Sacred Heart  Church" Hall shows that Archbishop  McNeill coi*Id have arranged for their  accommodation without going to the  School Board at all; and pro-res that  his request to the board was simply a  subtle move to establish the principle"  of separation in educational affairs.  -The action of the school board in turning down his impertinent request is  deserving of the commendation of  every supporter of our public schools.  One thing I would like to Impress  upon the citizens of Vancouver, and  that is that the Roman Catholic  Church is the open and avowed enemy  of the public schools. You n,eed only  read Roman Catholic papers, and  listen to addresses by prominent  Roman Catholic speakers to be convinced of the truth of my statement.  Let me quote from an editorial which  appeared in "The B. C. Orphan's  Friend," a Roman Catholic paper  printed in the City of Victoria, and the  "Official Organ of the Right Reverend  Bishop of Victoria." This is troni the  Issue for August, 1909. Some of the  Roman Catholic parents in Victoria  are being taken to task for sending  their children to the public schools,  jand this is what the arlclo says: "Unfortunately, some weak-miiiied Catholics, parents, oblivious of the grave  joUigations   they   have   towards   the;:  cational system which has the approval of the great majority'of the  citizens of this city and province. The  Roman Catholics will put up the plea  that they pay taxes to the public  schools, and therefore they are entitled to representation on the school  board. The Roman Catholics pay-  taxes for the support of the public  schools only because the law compels  them to do so. It they had their own.  way in the matter, not one cant would  go from Roman Catholics for the support of our public scbool system. As  proof of this statement, I have only to  mention the fact that In the city ot  Vancouver a great many of the Roman Catholic children do not attend  the public schools. Wherever they can  establish them in the city, the. Roman  Catholics are putting up separate  schools, where their children are hived  by themselves, and where they s^re  being taught the doctrines of Roman  Catholicism, One of which Is, "that  everyone outside' of the. pale of the  Roman Catholic Church is eternally  damned," and where, if the teaching  of Bishop McDonald of Victoria Is followed, they are taught that if they  mix with the children of Protestants,  "they are exposed to. eternal perdition." The question for the citizens of  Vancouver to-decide ��������� is whether they  wish to place upon-the school hoard  persons who are simply seeking that  position on account of their religion.  -*id who. judging, from the Utterances  of their religious superiors, are the  ayowed; enemies pf the educational  system they would be elected to uphold. My own opinion is that a Roman Catholic woman will be put up for  election, as they will probably think  that they will haye a better chance of  electing her than a man.' An attempt  will probably be made to get the en*  dorsatlon ot the National Council of  Women, but I trust this worthy organization will hot allow themselves to  be made the tools of a scheming Arch  bishop. Then probably the Archbishop  will try and get rr couple of Protestant  clergymen to act as bis "chore boys"  and endorse this woman's candidature.  But I am sure that any Protestaafc  clergyman worthy of the name will  not be a party'to'a scheme that  be the first step towards under  the public school system of the P**t^  lnce. "Forewarned is foreairoed,*"i_Bl  I trust It"will-only be nec4*ssh*T t������  bring the attention of the citizens at  Vancouver to the schemes of the H5s*-  man Catholic Church with regard ta*  our public school system, to cause UsW  defeat of any candidate that may b*w  put up by that church for the purpose  of trying to get control in some mtaah"  ure of the public schools of this ctty-  J.

While the cavalry had won tbe first  contest 1,7 to 9 oa heavier hitting,  the common citizens���������war correspondents and camera artists in the main-  had been reinforced the nlgbt before  the second tussle. Two lithe, sinewy  youngsters had blown into camp, asserting that they had some small, un  Important business with the commander. As that official had temporary business at San Antonio, the  boys had been made welcome and given quarters while awaiting his return.  Baseball, of course, had been one of  the earliest topics of conversation; and  the newcomers showed intense eagerness to break into the game. As anyone outside et army circles was eligible and the common dtlsens. were  short-handed, the new arrivals were  [promptly drafted into service. Brockett was detailed to guard center-eld,  while Ramon Solano was listed for  third base. Both youngsters, while  I wild to have at least one day of dives  sion, were modest and diffident when  'ssked to plsy. and declared that they  didn't want to crowd any other fellows off the team. It was explained,  however, that Sanborn, the estimable  'war correspondent of the New York  Whirl, had counted himself out with a  Charley-horse, while Summers, kodak-  man of the Chicago Billiard, had- been  Stuns by a scorpion���������not seriously,  but squarely on the right wrist, disabling him from further baseball doings. That left two vacancies, and  the appearance of the boya was a  blessing to the common cltisens' array.   '    .  : Brockett and Solano warmed up  with real delight when the teams were  summoned to the field. Tbey bad  found friends���������e Jovial crowd of newspaper men and photographic experts  .���������and the minor officers of the regiment hsd likewise extended tbem a  warm welcome. The Polo Grounds,  as tbe troopers proudly styled the ball  yard, was somewhat humpy ln places,  and rather diversified with cactus in  others, but everybody concerned bad  seen far worse arenas for tbe game.  '���������Grandstand there was none, but long  lines of cracker-boxes, beer cases and  brush heaps afforded sitting room,  while hundreds of the enthusiastic  bugs stood as close to the base lines  as they dared. Mexican ranchers,  ���������Mexican peons, rurales on short fur*  iloughs, "lungers" wbo had sought that  region for tbelr health, and soldiers by  the hundred���������such was tbe assembly,  and lt Is doubtful if any ball game  ever was played before s more uproarious crowd.-  , A college man who was directing  -things for a moving-picture concern  went ln as pitcher for the common  cltisens, and seemed fslrly capable.  He stopped the cavalry hitless for  two innings, pop files aad strikeouts  quickly disposing of the warriors. The  common citizens were equally helpless with the stick. Brockett and Solano, the newcomers, oo whom the  common citizens were counting for  material batting help, failed In the  pinch on their first times up. Brockett raised a foul fly to the fat sergeant, who was catching, and Solano  grounded to a farrier who was playing short.  In tbe third Inning the troopers began to land on the' moving-picture  man and two hits were followed by a  fumble on the part of a contractors'  agent, who was covering second. Wltb  '*T_e spider!   look out lor Ihetaraa-  tula, boy���������look out for the spider!"*  With a startled -fell Solano sprang  nimbly backward. The ball fell with  a chugging thud and rolled away. Two  runs crossed the platter, and the  whole regiment gave vent to wil_ and  woolly howls of glee. 8olano, a bright  crimson suffusing his olive eounto-  nance, said sever a word, bnt Brook*.  ett, far out, shrieked at the abs-rdtt-t  of the thing.  After this the tide of battle ebbed  and flowed. Tbe common cttiaene began to hit the distinguished marksman who was pitching, mat got beck  these two runs ln the fifth -Mine  They accumulated two more in thai  sixth, thanks to a neat drive by;  Brockett, and Solano got some mens*  ure of revenge in tho seventh wben be'  caught a liner and stepped on third;  before a runner could get back.

At the very edge of a mosquito clump far behind bia poattlon he)  gathered In the bell and heard a tre-i  mendoua outburst a* applause frcanj  the aesomblags. He arched the hatt!  back Into the Infield, started to wait  back to the bench���������and than aame^  thing swished through tbe air, aat ai  loop settled round his shoulders. The!  lasso wm pulled in with rapid hands.;  and Brockett vanished behind tf������!  meequlte dump before he could even  five a warning cry.  CHAPTER XXV.  It doesn't take long for a crowd of  husky athletes to traverse the distance between the home plate and cen-  terfield- As Brockett disappeared be*  bind the mesqulte, half a dosen ball  players, with a yell of surprise and  rage, dashed across the diamond. It'  was less than half a minute before  they reached the point where the las*  soed youngster bad last been visible, j  but aU that they found was Brockett  himself, still mixed up with the coils  of a lariat, his shirt half-torn off, the'  waistband of his trousers ripped, and!  bis pockets inside out. His assailants,!  whoever they might have been, had]  vanished Into the chaparral, and tbei  crackling of the^underbrush gave evidence that they were rapidly widening tbe distance between themselves  and the avenging cavalry. I  "What was it?" "Who roped yourj  "Are you hurt?" the players chorused,!  as they picked up the rumpled but;  uninjured centerfielder* Brockett,'  freed from tbe tangling rope, shook;  himself, made an effort to readjust his;  torn dothlng, and then sat down on;  the grass, rocking with laughter.  "I'm not hurt," he explained, be-'  tween spasms of merriment, "but I  a_nr went tfirs**g_r me Iir less than.' live  seconds' time. And they got the belt,  they got the belt, and ran away with  it!" Brockett again collapsed with  laughter.  "Didn't you see them at all.. my  host" (toastta-Bd. the chapjain..  **No> sir,** Brockett replied.^ "They  jerked me in here so fait I had no  chance to turn, and then laid me face  ; downward, so that I couldn't see them.  .They didn't even speak, but robbed  jme and were gone before I co-old even  'roll over and look.after them. It -_s  .finely done���������just the way the wild  iwest melodramas used' to.have the  j Mexican villain lasso the heroic -cowboy."  * "Didn't they get anything besides  'the belt?** asked Solano..  "Tes, they did." And again Brock*  !ett was convulsed. "They got a,:ntce  ���������set ot nonsensical messages and  !faked ciphers that I put in four.hours  ���������constructing on the train.

C, of Vancouver, who is in the city,  received a humble apology toward  from R. C. Edwards, editor of the Calgary Eye Opener. The apology follows  on a case of criminal libel, brought by  Mr. Davis against the local man, ln  which Edwards was committed for  trial on Wesdnesday.   Edwards Bays:  "E. P. Davis, Esq., K. C, Calgary:  Sir���������I beg to offer you my slncerest  apology for a vile attack on. you which  appeared in the Calgary Eye Opener  (of which I am the publisher) under  date of Aug. 3, 1912, for the publication of which I was yesterday committed for trial on a charge of criminal libel. There was not. a particle  of foundation in fact for that attack,  and I never believed there was, neither has there ben any foundation in  fact for the various other attacks on  you which have appeared in the same  paper during the last four years.  "I have never known you personally  and never have iad any dealings with  you, and my sole motive for tese attacks was that I thought you had criticized me and my paper too severely  in an address you made to a Calgary  jury some four years ago.  "I pomise not to mention your name  Rev. Pedley Made Bad Prediction.  Rev. J. W.Pedley, who dedicated the  new First Congregational Church Sunday, was the first pastor of that con-,  gregation. He came to Vancouver in  March, 1888, organized the church, and  was its pastor for eight years. "I  lived on the uppjer floor of a small  frame house just opposite where the  Hotel Vancouver is situated," he said  yesterday. "I used to go down every  morning and chop my own wood. That  district was then well wooded. The  change from then to today is little  short of marvellous. Shortly after I  came here I bought a lot of 722 Georgia  Street for 8400. That lot is now  worth at least 130,000, and the house is  still there. When I was building that  house I had to guard It every nlgbt on  account of danger of bush fires."  When Mr. Pedley left here in 1895  Vancouver had a population of 25.000.  He admits that he did not think it  would ever be much greater. After  leaving here he went to London, Ont.,  where he remained for four years.  81nce then he has been pastor of the  Western Congregational Church of  Toronto.  again or refer to you in any way, directly or indirectly, In any future number of the Calgary Eye Opener or any  paper that may be published by me.

We have a number of splendidly located lots which  are situated in the heart of the growing centre of the city and adjacent to  many big developments that are due to t4fc& place there. An investment in  Port Moody, we are*perfectly convinced, is the' finest investment that you  could possibly make with a small /sum of money.  PORT MOODY  situated at the head of Burrard Inlet, is the meeting place of car and cargo.  All transcontinental trains coming to the Coast from the prairies and the  Eastern Provinces, will empty their cargo at Port Moody when the Panama  Canal opens. The grain elevators which will soon have to be erected, will  probably be located in the immediate vicinity of our sub-division. A proposal is now being discussed with a view to constructing a canal between  Port Moody and the Pitt River, a distance of five miles. It is also probable  that the Second Narrows will be bridged by a four million dollar dam,  which, together with the canal, will make Port Moody a fresh water harbor.  Many other big developments are due to take place at  PORT MOODY  which is destined shortly to become one of the busiest cities in Canada.  The price of property at the present time iscomparatively low but it cannot  remain so for very long for there is a big demand for Port Moody ijealty.  Fill in the coupon below and we will forward you all particulars regarding  our subdivision.  Of Course There's a Reason  When you see railways laying their plans to build into Port Moody,  when you see proposals for making Port Moody a fresh-water harbor, and  when a scheme is launched for constructing a four - million - dollar canal  from Port Moody, to link it up with the cities reached by the Fraser Riveiv  then you tynow there is some reason for it. Y  The reason is that PORT MOODY HARBOR is preparing to receive  the millions of bushels of grain that will come to its shores on the opening  of the Panama Canal. The great transcontinental lines coming to the Pacific Coast make Port Moody their destination. That is why the GRAIN  ELEVATORS WILL SOON HAVE TO 1$E ERECTED. Our prop-  erty, ; ������������������-.��������� .,������������������,,   ,:>���������:<,��������� v.;>,   . :;    yyy-.  is the spot around which all these J>ig developments will centre. If you  doubt it, we iayite you to makethe trip to Poi*'Moody. We sh������ll be  pleased to take you there with us tomorrow on one of our free excursions  by launch, starting at 1:30.  You **dli also see by the official maps of Port Moody at our offices  that wtat ^say^s true. ;.Otir property is in great demand and as soon  as our promised announcement is made we expect realty values will take  a decided upward leap.        ."'���������  We still favefa few more high level lots which we are selling for  $175 EACH  Terms���������-One-fifth cash; balance half yearly over 30 months; or one-  tenth cash, balance monthly over 30 months.

Edmonds; and  besides being headquarters in. Grand-  view for all the above lines, it is also  the distributing point for the Western  Call. Mr. Edmonds has operated here  since June 3rd, 1911. He has built up  e fine business and is admirably adapted to the commercial line of business.  He followed sheep farming near Cape  Horn and at Patagonia for fourteen  years, formerly. He was manager of  a farm that contained about 13,000  acres of land and had much buying to  do. This former experience in a large  measure helps him in his present mercantile line, for having lived in a  country lihe that where things were  not grown or manufactured, taught  him the secret of buying, and. having  dealt direct with many, of the leading  firms for so many years, gives hiin the  advantage over many as a buyer, as  he can buy at the same rate as the  biggest wholesaler in Vancouver.  Personally Mr. Edmonds is a very  enterprising and bright young business man to meet. His experiences  would make a good lecture some night  before the Historical Society or Haifa-Million Club. He was born in England.  Boys'Clothing  We have the largest and best selected stock  of Boys' Clothing and Furnishings in the city.
