TBS APPROACHING ELECTION.  The election is coming on apace, bringing certain victory or defect to aspirants to office. 'Success or failure may turn on small things such as  a word fitly spoken, aptitude in discerning the  trend of public affairs, attention to the forces that  move toward the coveted prize, or the reverse.  In Vancouver, with its constant influx of new  blood and rapid development, candidates must  needs make themselves known to the electors  if they would win in the contest. He that announces his platform and thoroughly Bati-fies the  people that their interests will be safe in his  hands, "seizes fortune by the forelock" and com*  pels success.  THE EUROPEAN SITUATION.  Peace is about assured in Europe, Turkey has  concluded an armstice with Bulgaria, Servia and  Montenegro, Greece alone remaining in a state of  war. The madness that unsettles empires, employs vast armies to punish their neighbors on  small pretext and finds satisfaction in shedding  human blood is being replaced by general sanity  and-a feeling of universal brotherhood. Militant  rulers are no longer popular. The Powers are a  unit in bringing about a speedy settlement of the  unhappy differences in Southern Europe.  The chief danger zone is at the point of contact between Austria, Servia and Russia. Sound  ���������ense should prevail and avert further trouble,  r  "The only epitaph history could write upon  ���������uch a catastrophe," said Winston Spencer  Churchill, first lord of tha admiralty, in reference  to the possibility of a general war as a result  of the Balkan situation, 'would be this���������that a *  whole generation of men went mad and tore themselves to pieces."  THE POLIOS C0MMMM0NH������8.  A singular confusion has come about between  the Police Commissioners,.. Attorney-General  Bowser and the reading public. The whole matter put in a "nutshell" reduces to the following: Alexander street nourishes and has done a  large, growing business for more than twelve  months. Other aections of tbe city have been  ���������weiring in prostitution tog ifcany years until  their condition Is chronic.  - -^'<������������������;*������^  The present board of commissioners, headed by  tfayor wBfty, 4������1wwmm| toredww thtiwitMW*  * ~ To this end they pla-aned a 1*P������-  _���������__ _-__. ,���������s. j^WPOSSJff"wntefrPp'1 \%\o "*|"**flW"*"***IO'**l  worn***, tWeby cleaning up the body of iM* efty,  *nd furthermore getting the evil into a wore convenient form to control and eventually extenwn-  #te, if poastt-Je. This much seema to be clear, and  fhould be judged upon ita uvarita, as ft means to  unend.  Personally, the writer is absolutely opposed to  segregation of any vice, and believes it to be universally a failure, but nevertheless he is prepared  to grant that the commissioners were honest in  their avowed purpose to discharge their duties;  to the best of their ability. They now see their  mistake, and have for months, hence their change  of front and urgent orders to clean up the city.  ^,-**o return to their policy: Jit is certain theyy  privately agreed among themselves not to publish  their segregation plan, but to keep it a secret, and  thftt for lever*! reftsow, chief among which were  the following:  First���������To announce such a plan would draw  fallen women by hundreds to Vancouver. The  sequel proves their fears yrexe well founded for  the Merit leaked and at once the restricted district became congested.  Second���������Publication of purpose to first segregate and then pinch, punish and uproot the evil-1  doers, would scare the quarry, cause them to shun  the district and prosecute their business secretly  in scattered sections of the city. This, at least,  was in the mind of the commissioners.  Third���������Had the commissioners openly declared  their purpose, their plans would have been frustrated by an angry populace, aroused and directed  by the religious and moral leaders of the city.  In fact, the commissioners have all along maintained that suspicion, opposition and advertising  rendered their efforts futile; hence they lay the  blame for excess of prostitution in Alexander  street on the shoulders of the Good Government  League and the clergymen.   Judge ye who can.  After months of trial, when segregation was  (Continued on Outside Column)  Vote for T. S. BAXTER as Mayor  far  1913.  UNION HADE  Ask the  BA  man  CHELOII ���������������"  who smokes them.  THE MAROLTY ELECTION  (Prof. E. Odium. M.A.. B.Sc.)  Many are sorry that Alderman Ramsay has''  dropped out of the contest for the Mayoral chair.  He has served the city many years and deserves  the best reward the citizens can give him. We are,  all deeply sorry that through the death of his  brother he has lost one from his own family, and  from his business. Perhaps in the near future  Alderman Ramsay will be somewhat freed from  business responsibility, at least so far as" to permit -  him to seek election for Mayoral honours, in  which case he should be supported by those whom  he has faithfully and efficiently served.  THE ATTORNEY-GENERAL.  er in or out of the Council, of 1913 we wish them  success. With the Council we most certainly  include Mayor Findlay.  ANOTHER OHAT WITH REV. BONNER, OF  THS "WESTERN CATHOLIC."  In a short paragraph last week, I said I would  say something in favor of certain claims of the  Roman Church. I now do so, and in deepest sincerity.  But as a prelude, I may say that no matter bow  much I may attack that Church wherein I consider  it is in error, I at no time would apply my hard  knocks to the members of the Roman Catholic  A strong and zealous deputation interviewed \ Church, as such. We have hosts of truly good,  the Attorney-General last week. No person can J loyal, shrewd, business citizens among them. They  doubt the sincerity of the men who called upon  the -Ion. Mr. Bowser in the interests of the public.  At that interview many things came clearly to  the surface. I wish to make a few comments  thereon. Perhaps four paragraphs will cover all  I care to say at this moment.  First���������It goes without saying that, as a rule, the.v  government should house those whom the working"  out of the law send for housing. Of course general ?  rules' frequently need modifying even in the^  public jnterest. The Attorney-General thinks the *  case under consideration by the deputation was'.  one of that kind, while they differed from him by  holding to the general rule.  Second���������The soundest and safest way to do \.  effective work, and that is what all true men and <  women desire, is to grip relentlessly the bigr  designing, business, heartless women who manage  the houses of "ill fame," and punish them. Bring  them before the court this week and fine them.  Bring them up next Week and fine them. Bring  them up the following week and fine them. Never  mind the jail.  . have clear notions of their duty both to the state  I and to' the church.   They need no teaching to  ���������' Show them their duty in either direction. / These  men never grow angry with me because I attack  - certain abuses and false claims made by the inside  \ .Machine manipulators of that .wonderful organ-  ^ Ization.  Now for my promise. 'I most heartily agree  with you, Reverend Sir, when you on behalf of  ? yourself, your church, your people and/the public,  ������laim that the young, rising generation should  have some sort of religious training in the public  schools. To my mind this is fundamentally,  strong ground, because it lies at the foundation of  all individual success of a permanent sort.  While I sincerely agree with you, sir, on this  matter, we would not, perhaps, fully agree on the  method of securing our desires.  However, there might be a way found for common and agreeable work in this direction. Tou  and I agree that children should not be so related  to education and history as to cut out, in an official  *Aray, all knowledge of God's dealing with the  v' v������  5tn&_S_SSr S3 f Es������tt*_������,������__M,  2L 1^L?J!__u2^_.i_S?i__i7iIt llLEl^ -Wacity; are AGNOSTICS, IF NOT ATHEISTS,  after.

After years of consideration writing, talking and earnest searching,  they decided to prepare a Bible. I believe it was  known as "The Ross Bible." It was really a compilation of scripture stories,,, accounts and lessons,  taken from different parts of Holy Writ.  This was put into the schools and was largely  used. Of course it did not give full satisfaction  to either party. But it had the merit of giving the  children some clear notion of Bible History, morals, and teaching, in addition to something of the  highest and most profound importance.  Here is the second thing���������The public and official act said to all the children as well as to the  whole world, that so far as Ontario spoke in an  official capacity, Ontario recognized, honored and  strove to obey the God of heaven and earth.

The year is approaching its end, and old Father  Time- is ready to usher in a fresh young, blustering, vigorous child, the first of his usual annual  production.  With the advent of this young firstborn, January, depart the members of the 1912 Council.  Before they leave for silent restfulness, or venture  upon another election, it is wise to tell them that  as a body they have done well.  No Council in the history of Vancouver hss  done better than the present. As citizens, we owe  them a debt of gratitude, and we praise them for  their public spirit and the constant ability they  have devoted to the interess of the people.

This is a topic so vast  thftt I care' *iot to aay more on the matter just  now.- Another cause is to be found- in the very  chaste, respectable, Christian women. Our Christian women too often run riot to save fallen men,  blubber over "saved pugilists,*! "gamblers,"  "thieves,*' and other similar, persons; but tbey  do not and will not turn ft hand to save a poor,  fallen girl. The low, impure,, immoral Chinaman  can find good homes and high wages in the houses  of our Christian men and women, but the poor f*rirl  who has made a single trip in the wrong direction  is not permitted to enter these homes as a servant*  She is forced into poverty, starvation, and shame  by the Tory class who are apt to be too hasty in  condemning the Attorney-General because he ven-  Of course you know that the plan of having a  lot of clerics hanging around the corridors of the  Eublic schools for a chance of giving a little  urried, spasmodic, conflicting religious teaching  in the name of DENOMINATIONAL RELIGION,  would never do. It would prove a curse and confound confusion, which is not desirable. Furthermore, the other plan of giving a lot of separate  schools, would be even worse folly. We want in  British Columbia, just one united people, under  the British flag, loyal to the Empire, and inspired  by the one spirit. Separate schools to suit all  sorts of claimants each with different sentiments  from the others, and owning differing potentates,  could never bring out of such chaos a united,  harmonious and an intelligently loyal people.

Mr>  W. A. l-etcher, on tbe subject of "The  Work of the Extension Society," pointed out that the objects of the society  were to promote a spirit of union and  co-operation among the various districts of Vancouver, to provide an opportunity for a free and full discussion  of denominational affairs, and to promote a better acquaintance through  social Intercourse of the various (denominations. Besides the work of  opening live new churches during the  past year the society has undertaken  to do something to combat, the serious  problem which confronted the  churches with respect to the large foreign Immigrant element which was  coming to the city in everlncreaeln.'*  numbers. To this end the society had  been successful in getting the conference of the church in the province to  set aside one minister whose whole  endeavors would be given up to this  work. The Rev. J. C. Switzer pointed  out that over 51) per cent, of the. lawless are rescmited from the ranks of  the foreign immigrant. The task of  the church, he said, was to see that  witlTthe increase of population there  was not a weakening of the two most  important institutions for the betterment of the moral U'e of the peope,  namey, the home and the church. The  Rev. A. M. Sanford, treasurer of the  society, was gad in the thought that  whereas the Methodist Church in Vancouver six years ago had but five ordained men and two students, it now-  had eighteen ordained men and seven  young men to carry oirthe work. The  Rev. Mr. Sanford said that so far as  he was concerned he sometimes felt  that he would like to get along without any churches and run his own religious affairs to suit himself. Yet be  thought great good for the future can  be accomplished when people combine  to forward an object,  Hastings. wWle If Vint *������*m am* %WJ***W** W* Oommaralai pr.  opened <*���������,*���������*#������* ������J%4i**tt fgW^^ ���������������"*������ ������������������������ Csmp*  would He able to pttr*m*s i*������ ���������rfvf5** **-  chants of coamtam drive.

Many natives of the United States  who own property in Vancouver, and  who are on the civls voters' lists, are  unaware that by the .city charter tieej  have no legal right to vote at the municipal elections. Owing, however, to  the fact that the civic lists are made  up from the assessment rolls It Is difficult for the City Hall officials to remove from the lists those not entitled  on account of nationality to vote.  With so many foreigners the di....culty  Is solved because of their names, but  this solution does not of course apply  to natives of the States. It Is believed  that at the present time not a few  men from the States, through being  placed on the civic voters' lists as  either property owners or tenants, are  yearly casting votes in the civic contests.

Sixteenth  A few nights ago the motor-  * Tried to Derail Car  Within the past two weeks, two, if  not more, attempts have been made  by someone to derail British Columbia  Electric  Railway cars on  avenue.  man on a late' car noticed a heavy  scantling lying across the rails on  Sixteenth avenue near Ash street. He  saw It in time to stop the car, and at  that time the occurrence was not  thought to be anything but tbe prank  of some boys.  When the same thing happened in  almost the same location again the  British Columbia Electric Railway  officials began to think that lt might  be an attempt to rob the car in case  it was derailed, or some act of spite  on the part of someone.  The police have been notified of the  affair, and are investigating.   *  Surprise for Madame Yulisse.  Madame Yulisse had a pleasant surprise Thursday evening, when some  eighteen ladies and gentlemen, including Rev. H. F. Waring, pastor of the  Fifth Avenue Baptist Church, where  Madame Yulisse has been choir director for nearly two years, called and  presented her with a handsome inlaid  "server" with sterling silver scrolled  girder and handles. Mrs. Woodworth  and Mrs. Lesie made the presentation,  and in a very cordial speech said  Madame Yulisse had charmed as  much by her personal qualities as her  musical ones. A delightful evening  was spent in song and story, the  ladies serving dainty refreshments before the gathering dispersed. Madame  Yulisse.bas become director of music  for the Mount Pleasant Methodist  Churcli. Her wide popularity should  prove a Btrong asset to the local  church.  CON8IOER THE  HORSE.  Frosty mornings this week have  been welcomed, as they bring bright  days. But the white "frost on hard  pavements has made the going very  bad indeed for heavily burdened dray  horses. This is especially true on the  hills, and many teams have been  stalled in trying to make the grade.  Some distressing accidents have occurred, and more than once loads  bave had to be left until the frost  melted off.  A wise snd humane measure baa  been Inaugurated by the street- superintendent, who has had * Urge number of the men of his force busy each  morals! iafljr scatterti^coiJrse aanf  on the slipD.ry pavements, thus giving the poor jhorses a chance of a foot*  hold. The motor truck Is tn most  cases able to swing naughtily by the  team-hsuled dray on the frosty streets,  another ' argument why the horse  should be superseded.  There Is one point Impressed from  observation of\the many incidents on  the crowded pavements ss the hundreds of loaded teams start but tn the  mornings. That Is the vast difference  in the teamsters. Happily for ths  ���������poor horse, the vast majority of the  men seem to have a feeling of sympathy for the struggles the brutes  have to keep tbeir feet and get along  with the load. There are so many  really fine horses employed in hauling  material In this city that naturally  the^men to whom they are entrusted  have a great deal of pride In their appearance. That this is true Is seen  from the excellent appearance of most'  of the horses on the streets, evidence  of care and good condition. Men who  are thus considerate of their horses  are sure to be even more careful and  considerate when lt comes to protect-  *ng them on the slippery pavements  'n the frosty weather. The shoeing  forges bave been busy putting sharp  caulks on horse shoes all week.  There are, unfortunately, some exceptions, and an observer on "The  Hill" has had occasion to remark a  number of such exceptions, when coming down Main street this week. It  would seem as if some of the men entrusted with the care of horses expected the dumb brute to have more  sense than the driver himself displays.  To judge from the cruel, inconsiderate  actions occasionally seen thiB week,  there are some men who would visit  the blame of frosty, slippery streets  on the horses, and punish them for it,  and for failing to keep their feet, as  well as when the roads are safe. To  the credit of the teamsters as a class  these thoughtless, cruel drivers are  a very small minority.

"It is quite certain that the order to enter the Privy  Council judgment will not be opposed,,  because it would be a futile opposition. After that we will find out who  is on the property and issue notices-  to them, warning them to vacate the-  property. It is an unpleasant duty  that we will have to perform, but the  decree of the court Vesting the property in the original owners, puts the  present: occupants of the land into  the category of trespassers."  Mr. W. H. D. Ladner, counsel for ,  Mrs. Fleming, who until the recent  judgment waa registered waB part  owner of the property, stated that he  would not oppose the application to  enter the Privy Council judgment, aa  it would be futile to do so. He stated  that Mrs. Fleming, had some years  ago given an argreement of sale to  Smith Brothers of this city, who In  turn had sub-divided and given agreements to a number of lot Owners.  Mr. Ladner intimated that it waa  understood that' Smith Bros, would  make some arrangements with the lot  owners, whose properties are now  taken away from them, and that  Smith Bros, woud in turn look to  Mrs. Fleming for a return of monies  paid to her. After this is effected it  is possible that the question will be  raised of the right of Mrs. Fleming  to claim against the South Vancouver  municipality for damages caused by  the giving of the faulty tax sale deed  which >as caused the litigation and  loss.

With regret I am forced to trespass  on the columns of our valuable paper.  I had the pleasure (?) of listening to  an address given by the Rev. J. W.'  Woodside, entitled "Ireland and the  Irish" (or advertised as such), and in  my opinion it was nothing short of a  blackmail on the land that gave me  birth. Mr. Woodside informed us that  Irish blood runs..in his veins. It must  be very weak, as be certainly showed  very little of the honest optimistic  mood an Irishman is in when speaking of his own beloved country.  Mr. Woodside chose to emphasise  the fact that the Irish people as a  whole were very Ignorant and superstitious. I would like, to know what  nationality a man would be when he  would not resent such a libel. Even  if such was the case, he showed very  little tact in making such a statement.  I might make a similar attack on the  Province of Quebec, and. probably no  man would be more Indignant than  the Ren. J. W. Woodside. and Justly  so. Why Mr. Woodside spoke such  a ridiculous falsehood regarding  marriages in Ireland I cannot understand, namely: That the contracting  parties did not know each other until  the hour of their marriage, and that  the bargaining was done by some one  interested in either of the parties.  This is a direct Insult to all Irish men  and women. If Mr. Woodside will do  justice to that little Irish blood In his  veins, he will come out and explain  why he made {his statement.  Mr. Woodside endeavored to explain how hard it was for Government  officials to gain information from the  Irish people in regard to the Old Age  Pensions scheme, etc. It seems to me  they put one over on him when he recently visited their land.

Nov. 29.���������A  youth, aged 16, employed as a waiter,  who states his native city is Inverness, Scotland, was yesterday found  guilty of the theft of a metal calculator from the home of James L. Webster of Burnaby. The Burnaby police  have many charges of minor theft  against the young man, and with his  arrest have solved the mystery of  the many petty thefts occurring in  that municipality. At present four  other indictments are laid against the  youth, and when arrested a shack occupied by him in the outskirts of New  Westminster was found to contain a  large collection of missing articles.  The young man seems to bave a dread  ofi the reform schools and from his  remarks appears to favor the penitentiary. He is very cool about the  matter, but does not seem to realize  the seriousness of his acts.  Didnt Want Him to Know It.  Mrs. Jones: "Why are you going  home so soon? Surely your husband  can get along without you.  Mrs. Smith: I know it.

Bernard Honig is the directing  mind of the big, popular Honig Stores  at 56-60 Hastings street east, stores  that are gradually drawing trade, not  only from all parts of Vancouver, but  from adjacent towns and cities. The  popularity of these department stores  can be traced to four things, vis.:  reasonable prices, large stock of great  variety and wide range, superior  quality Of goods, and above all to the  true business instincts of Bernard  Honig, who, after twelve years, has  risen from proprietor of a small confectionery shop on the north side of  Hastings street to this present extensive and thoroughly up-to-date, aggregation of stores.  At the present time important  changes are being arranged which,  when complete, will consist of Seven  Floors, thoroughly.

Upon total areas for potatoes, turnips, mangolds, etc., hay and  clover, alfalfa, fodder corn aqj*. sugar  beets amounting to 8,78_,000 acres, as  compared with 9,180,000 acres last  year, the total value of the products  Is 1102,6000,000 compared with 92S8.  790,000, a decrease In value of $33,390,  000. This decrease Is caused by the  diminution, both In ares and yield, of  the hsy snd clover crop, which Is loss  than list year In ares by 416,000 seres.  In yield by 1,000,000 tons, and In  value by 118,880,000. , All the other  crops show Increases, except altalfe,  the eras of which In Canada Is rem*  tlvely small. Tbe yield of potatoes Is  8l,3������,OO0 bushels, of the vnlue of fit,  178,000.; of turnips and other roots  87,605,000 bushels. Vnlue  110,718,000;  of fodder com 8,858,900 tons, vnlue 818,  521,000; of sugar beets 204,000 tons,  value $1,020,000, and of alfalfa 810,000  tons, value f8,������lo,eoo. In quality all  these crops are merited hl������b. the Standard percentage being shout 87, excepting for .turnips, etc., which are 98,  snd for fodder com, which Is 82.' A  word of caution ts necessary with regard to potatoes, for whilst yield and  quality are generally good at. harvesting, there are numerous reports of rot*  ting in the cellars, the produce of the  heavier soils having been considerably  affected by the constant rains.  Tbe area estimated to be sown to  fall wheat in Ave provinces of Canada  this season aggregates 1.086,000 acres,  as compared with 1466,900 acres the  area sown last year. This represents  a net decrease of 70400 acres, or 6 per  cent. In Ontario the acreage sown Is  696,000 acres, compared with 7974100  acres, a decrease of 101,200 acres, or  12.6 per cent; in Alberta tbe figures  are 312.000 acres, as against 300,700, a  decrease of 11,800 acres, or 3 iM per  cent.; and In Saskatchewan tbe area  sown Is 72,000s acres, against 58,000  acres, an increase of 19,000 acres, or  36 per cent. Small areas In Manitoba  and British Columbia complete the  totals. The decrease in area is due to  the persistenet rains which have hindered ploughing and sowing operations.  The condition of this crop on Oct..  31 was 92.67 per cent, of the standard  for the Ave provinces. It was above  90 in each province, except Manitoba,  where the small area of about 4.000  acreB had a per cent, condition of  88 1-2.  The percentage of fall ploughing  completed upon land intended for next  years crops ranges from 45 in Ontario  to 77 in Prince Edward Island for the  East, and from 24 In Alberta to 38 in  British Columbia for the West. It is  remarkable that both this year and  last yea j the seasons in the three  Northwest provinces have been adverse to fall ploughing, and less than  about 25 per cent, of such ploughing  has been possible in both years as  compared with a more normal percentage at the same date of from 50 to 75.  In the three Northwest provinces ,the  area summer fallowed this year is estimated as being from 2 to 5 per cent,  more than last year.  ARCHIBALD BLUE,  Chief Offlcer.
