Theodore Roosevelt. The  Premier in his letter promised the-support of both  hi*nself and the British government.  He pointed out that the proposal to.erect monuments in England. America, and the British Colonies to commemorate the centenary, had met  with the approval 'of the British committee, and  he������thought that the three proposals mentioned  were .worthy of adoption.  Emll Braiin, Burgomaster, of Ghent, announced  that the municipality- of that city intended to  assist in. the celebration by restoring to its or*  * iglnal ^tate the room in which the Anglo-American  treaty was signed, and by holding a banquet in  the same room in which the'\peace- delegates  dined. /  THE G. N. R. AND FALSE CREEK.  Col. Davidson and Mr. F. H. Phippen, K.C.,  Speak for the Company���������No Wish to  Delay Negotiations.  At ti meeting of the Bridges and Railways  Committee.'Colonel Davidson stated that the  C. X. II. Co. did not wish lo discontinue or  del.'iy negotiations rfs to their entry into  False Creek. .  Ex-.hulge F. H. riiippen. K.C., general  counsel for the company, cleared up some  points in tho proposed agreement.  The modification's., proposed by 7**rr. Phippen favor the city rather than the company.  Prominent among the suggested changes in  the agreement are the following important  items: ' -  ' Tlu.it ilie C. N! R. will increase their minimum; expenditure fi;om .14.000,000 to *r>,000.-  000; will guarantee, when they shall establish a shipping line,. Vancouver to be the  home port, with all supplies to be bought  here. _ and passengers and freight "taken on  and off at this city; and that there shall be  twov instead of one tunnel into the city.  ft was the contention of Mr. Phippen that  nothing could be done without .a perfect understanding on both sides. This being arrived at, the company were prepared to put  in black and while exactly" what they were"  prepared to do.  It is to be hoped that needless delays in.  the negotiations will be ayoided, and that  False Creek will soon  be converted into a  profitable centre of business.  h&������3������* + K-������,ftr������  -���������*.*(  -VV.*f-������  -Wt  * r_Vld.

He has also  been a rcry active man in civic matters and has a very, comprehensive knowledge of civic affairs. The electors of Ward V. are  very fortunate in securing him as a candidate, and we believe lie  will make a painstaking and able .representative.-. We are most  anxious that only men of known integrity shall be elected, and are  pleased, that we .shall have the opnortunity of supporting such  men as those who are forward in Ward. V.  FRANK TRIMBLE, of Ward "VIJL, has also sat on the  council for two years, with credit to himself and value to the city.  He is a quiet, reserved man, but with a good level head on his  shoulders. His advice is not recklessly given, but when it is you  ean rely on it. He is absolutely honest. His services have been  unselfishly given and Ward VIIJ. should return him-at the head  of the poll. 4  Xext week we will have something further on this matter.    In  the meantime Ave believe the electors should take advantage of -  every possible opportunity of hearing the various candidates discuss public questions.  Read Special Article by.

In the latter place he had an  opportunity of observing the men who make 7.  our laws.   He reports H. II. Stevens as n  winning number. Among many good and  pleasing things he said: '' H. H. Stevens is  very popular with aUm  of party,lilies. 'No member is more active  and devoted to the interests which he is  supposed to represent. He is at work early  and late and shows much ability. Vancouver has reason to be proud of her representative." ;  Mr. II. II. Stevens will spend his Christinas  in Vancouver.  The Vancouver Representative in Debate.  II. IT. Stevens' debate on the Government's  naval proposals, reported iu the News-Advertiser of Dec. 17, suggests that Vancouver's representative is awake to the questions of the hour and that he has the ability  to express his convictions in terse language  when occasion requires. ;  In a captivating manner and well ehoseii-.  words he defended the'naval bill. We add ;t  few of his many pithy remarks:  The Conservatives demand that the bonds  of sympathy wiiieb have lasted so long shall  be sueeeeded by something more substantial.  Liberal speakers may go'on and harp about.  "bonds of sympathy," but the Government  proposes to go on and -supply additional-  strength'.  In 1909 Great Britain made an effort to reduce the-armaments, but Germany did not  follow the example, and this year Great  Britain has been forced to resume the''struggle for supremacy. The charge that it will  adversely affect Canada's autonomy cannot  lie sustained. _ There is more danger to the  Empire if it continues to lack the federating  -principle.  Todfiy it would he impossible to draw men0  from the Pacific Coast to man the battleships.  Where there were some thousands of white  fishermen a few years ago, there are about  four or five hundred today, their places having been taken bv .Japanese fishermen. These  fishermen have every foot of the British'  Columbia Coast charted and mapped better  than uuy Admiralty chart. This is one result of the policy of the late Government.  The Liberals stand for a separate Canadian  navy, and the Conservatives for one King,  one Flair, one Km pi re and one Navy.  -#*r  ;v  4 al  1  s$_i������?2  yy������^jy0W' \  1  .ve  2  THE WESTERN CALL."

In round figures it is estimated that  tbe.carrying out of the work for the  Greater Vancouver joint sewerage system will entail aa expenditure of $6,-  000,000.  This was the information given to  the Burrard Peninsula Joint Sewerage  System Committee, who met for the  purpose of receiving a report from Mr.  R. S. Lea, consulting engineer, which  was practically a synopsis of the final  report he anticipates being able to  present before the end of the year.  In this report Mr. Lea states in regard to the matter of population, that  he estimates the city's population will  have increased to 1,400,000 by the year  1950. The intermediate years he considers will be likely to show as follows: 1920, 320,000; 1930, 680,000; and  1940, 880,000. It is assumed by Mr.  Lea .that Vancouver will grow ��������� at a  rate rather more than that experienced  by New York.

Two boys were sentenced to two  years in the Industrial School by Judge  Mclnnes last week for participating in  a robbery at Steveston on November  29.  The evidence was that the lads entered the house of'a Chinaman named  Ah Fook and stole $35 in cash? Armed  with a revolver, the evidence then was  ihey Btole Fooks gold watch and chain.  Other Chinamen appeared on the scene  and the boys beat a hasty retreat.  In passing sentence his honor read  the lads a severe lecture, pointing out  that if the offence had been committed  j by grown men they would have been  liable to a maximum sentence of life  imprisonment and, also to a whipping.  Mr. W. M. McKay represented the  Crown. The boys cried bitterly when  sentence was passed.  I "Is it expensive to send a boy to  college?"  "No," replied the father, who had  Just received another request for funds  "but I find it's expensive ta keep him  there."���������-Detroit Free Press.'  ��������� '    'f .

Less than two blocks from tbe Sauder home the same thieves, presumably, some time Friday night attempted  to break into the home of a prominent  official of a local company. Some time  during the nlgbt, after the family had  retired, marauders worked the key out  of the outside basemeot door, unlocked it by means of a skeleton key,  and then attempted to force open the  door leading from the basement stairway to the first floor. Three large  dents on the door Jamb and corresponding breaks in the corner of the  door give evidence of a heavy "Jimmy"  being used to pry the door open. But  the door was heavy and the lock unusually good. The thieves failed* and  departed without gaining anything or  doing further damage.

Where, then, shall man. placed  in the garden'of the world, find his  greatest joy? He may find pf in aU  things that bloom���������In flower and  fruit, in grass and tree, in river and  sky; but keener than tbe joys which  these can yield is the joy which comes  from bis own kind. The hest can yield  hest joy to tbe best. Man can bring  to man a g'adness wbicb no flower or  fruit of earth can bring.  Not therefore in accumulated possessions, but m our fellow-men. will  our truest joys be found. The old  pictures which show us the mother  bending over her Babe, while tbe wise  and rich are unfolding tbelr treasures,  preach to us the dear human gospel  of Christmas Day. Our best joys can  be found, not in riches, but in realizing our kinship with the men and women and children who are round about  us; for there is more joy ln sympathy  than in a surplus: life finds its fulnees  in love, and love finds its vocation tn  service, even as Christ came, "not to  be ministered unto, but to minister."   Ti   THE CHRI8TMAS GOOSE  Last Christmas a certain vicar was  invited to a big dinner at the house  of one of tbe leading men in the town.  At the disner table he was placed  opposite a goose.  The lady of the house was placed  on the vicar's left. Seeing the bird in  front of him, he remarked: "I'm pretty  near the goose this time." Then added hastily���������"Excuse me; I meant the  roast one."  Why is an acquitted prisoner like a  gun?���������Because he is charged, taken  up, and then let off.  The formal welcome to the Vancouver High School Cadets took place in  the Horse Show Building Thursday  last week, and there was no doubt  about tbe cordiality and enthusiasm  of the reception to the returned travellers. There was an immense crowd  present. Addresses of welcome were  delivered by Mayor Findlay and Sir  Charles Hibbert Tupper, and an eloquent reply made by Capt. Davy.  The programme presented by the  Cadets was almost an exact replica of  the entertainment they provided at  many points in Australia and New Zealand. It consisted of fancy drill revolutions, gymnasium drill, presentation  of colors and a sham battle, as well as  a series of bugle calls by the Cadet  band. The band of the Sixth Regiment  Occupation and Calling of Candidate.' and the Welch choir also assisted in  Vancoufar,��������� ���������Z&aamayv^-.&'Q-j,19i the programme.  *---*-m-sip������_p_m--__--p___i  Jricw ������I * few XMAS Q0Q0S  ^-....,.. .--v- y^ job  ���������"**************^"**********p  "���������ife^^ffSwie *t.aaewe*m *������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������*���������������������������������������������������������������������������������������-.������������������^���������������������������.������������������*f- *>*"-*o  '    M |Nti_ - fk   "ff_t  mWWi| a'eaef*. *999f*****\-'*'.������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������.*9fa 999  ftjhrwyjEM'fo . %        .. .> , .,....������, <ftc  * j- 9*99 Ww-frlff-. ^^*W-rww*rW-fw y ������������������������������������#e**������e������������e������������e������e^������������e e^m ������������������������������������������������������������* ��������� #|f������    ^fQfW  PHOIfWf    WWMIpV     ������������������������������������������������������..���������.���������������������������ee., eeeee.eeeeee4.ee.,-. |||*   ^t|0  <^f4WWPIf#     ������������������������������������������ *���������������*���������������������������* e*.*....*eee**������ ��������� ��������� ��������� ��������� . fytfe   *^WV  M     Jor4iw Jb. m  Prowdvy Vmm p9k. %*k  *Ww9w ym*mjt9^*me   ��������� ��������� e ��������� ������������������*���������������. ������.e.te*������. .������������������������������������������*���������������������->������������������*. >��������������������������������������������� 9^9*   **y*)9w  m*f^y9mm*\**}   *faj*J9^99W    ���������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������esse e������.������*.*e. *��������������������������������������������� ������������������-.���������������������. ej^Jle    <^wQ  |wwt 0J4tr > quart 20o  3oU������4 0i4er bottle 860  Twldib fifM    ��������� ... .lb.

Their conclusions he rejected  and their.recommendations he spurned. He lightly declared that- there  was nothing new in the memorandum  from what was known and discussed  four years ago. Let us examine a  little this memorandum. One clause  reads: "In the spring of the present  year, the fifth German navy law was  assented to. by ihe Reichstag. The  main feature of that law is not the  fn<T"c=e 5n the new construction of  onr>i!:>I ships, though thot is import-' at  ''lit. but. rather, the increase in the  ���������-������������������rn<!n<T force of all Fbii-p of all classes  there are no new facts.  "Taking a general view, the effect  of the new law will be that nearly  four-fifths 0,!' the entire German navy  will be maintained iu full permanent  commission; that is to eay instantly  and constantly ready for war."   .  "The new law adds 15,000 officers  and men and makes a total in lf������20 of  10?,500. The new construction under  the law" prescribes the building of  three additional battleships " And so  the memorandum goes. And yet Sir  Wilfrid sees nothing new in it. And  to'suin up, here is what-the Admiralty  has to say in reply to the Premier's  ri"n r.-s������i for the most effective method  of aid; y  "The Prime Minister'of the Dominion, having enquired in what fprm any  immediate aid that Canada might give  would be most effective, we have no  hesitation in answering, after a prolonged consideration of all the circumstances, that it is desirable tbat said  aid should include the provision of a  certain numler of the largest and  strongest ships of war which science  can build or money supply."  *   &    *   *  FOR MAYOR  For Sato  A large lot, 50x132 ft,, in block 2000  Pender Street,  Eaat.

To tell the truth, we do not trouble  W7 much about tbe matter.

As a matter of fact, a good many  Older people havo tried to, find out  where the Christmas tree came from,'  but nobody e/ems to be <*u*te certain  yet as to how. many years ago the  mod old custom was started, y /  F. Some learned mat, have told oo that,  it came from ancient Vgypt "Thar  ���������ay that at certain whiter festivities  ithe Egyptians used a sUp of a palm  .tree with twelve Jjuwte on It, tbls. ot  oourse, representing tha f*m wtt&it*  twelve months. -I do oot think." tow-  ever, that our Christmas tree bar anything to do with that twelve*booted  slip of palm* It Is more probabt^thlit  it is to be traced back *hm1k\Wm  customs of-tho country wbicb favo It  to ji*H--3e-*iuanrV   - >.      t     :  ..

In those days, bowsver,  the Church did not approve of the  Christmas tree���������I expect because It  was of heathen origin���������and we are  told that a preacher named Professor  Dannhauer, of- Btrasburg Cathedral,  spoke very strongly against it  Well,   the  Christmas tree became  very popular Indeed In Germany, but  you may be surprised to know that lt  Is only about seventy years since It  was taken to England. When Victoria  the Good married Prince Albert In  1840, many new German customs were  introduced into the old country, and  the Christmas tree was one of them.  At Windsor Castle In 1846 there was  a buge'vtree forty feet high, which was  laden with presents said to be worth  no less than $46.0001 That was something like a tree wasn't It?���������bnt I do  not suppose lt gave a bit more pleasure than the little tree you see In a  poor man's' cottage window.

Reverend Sir:  Tn your paper, the "Western Catholic,'' yon  write on Professor Odium and call him some  names that are not nice. Evidently your temper  caused you to^/orget the course of a Christian,  kind-hearted gentleman. <*Bumptious mountebank,*' "unscrupulous inventor," "trotting wit  the same lying words/' "ignorance," etc., and  similar terms are not wisely chosen by you in  your editorial. It is not decent. It is not Christian. It is'not the\ mark of a kirid,( merciful  Christian servant of "the loving Maste*r. Your  own readers will" surely see that you lose your  head when you* temper gets control, and they  wijl begin to suspect that, petthaps, Odium has  <jhe truth ou his' side, and that an ill-tempered  man writing >vith the.spirit of vengeance is not.  Wptrable. Please do, not repeat that sort of folly  in the'fhture.

Let us be goodnatured Christian gentlemen as we are holding a historic  and <a religious conversation. Bear in  mind that the public are watching the  language we use, so we needs must be  very circumspect.  Now, Reverend Sir, kindly tell me  and the public which of the above holy  Pop'fes are infallible. Wasl^onnosus?  Was Stephen? Was Theodorue. or  John, or Sergius? In what did their  -infallibility consist? And where appeared their god-likeness, th.eir holiness, their manliness even?

GITY BRoOKERAGE CO.  430 Mam Street Branch 164 Broadway East, near Main Street  "Infallible Man'in the Roman Chvjrch,"  6r it tbere'be many of such a high and  God-like Btandlng? If he, the preBeat  Fbpe, be infallible, did'he become 80  by the votes of the Cardinals who elected him? Mow can a vote, or a dozen  votes, make a poor Sinful priest infallible? And if he is Infallible once, is  he always infallible?   Now do not tell  your, readers that Odium is a "liar"  and that he misquotes "history." I  may suggest to you that Odium is well  known in Vancouver, and he is known  to be a truthful"man, a man who*delights in the truth, and who holds no  hard feelings against, these with  whom he holds conversation by pen  or other/vise^ Keep out of the pitfalls  of bad temper, and give us some sound  explanations and-answers of and to  the above questions. x  Lastly for this talk: In quoting the  following words from another source  you said that no Catholic^ publication  would be gulty of such language.  Here are the words I quoted: ".Many  opinions are to be forbidden (by the  Roman Catholic Church) even to war  and bloodshed." <, I am glad you condemn such language. I do likewise.  But your evident point in so, doing is  to show that the officials of the  Roman Church would not teach such  an awful, so monstrous a thing.   .  Let us look arond a bit. About 1910  (you see* that-1 "not ancient time)  FatheKA. Grius, Jepicier O.S.M., published a book with the sanction of the  Church. In that book we may read:  "If a mart publicly .professes- a heretical doctrine, or attempts to -pervert  others by teaching or example.5 not  only-may-he, speaking absolutely, be  excommtmicated, but with justice, .be  killed." " ,  In Art. xl. he says: "The Church,  absolutely speaking, has,the' right to  bring heretics to. death."  Now, to be explicit, let us see what  the present Pope has to say about a  heretic, in the way of description. In  1906 the present Pope published "A  Compendium . of Christian Doctrine."  See second edition, page 131: "Who  are Heretics? Heretics are the baptised who pertinaciously "refuse to believe some truth revealed by God and  taught as of faith by the Catholic  Church: POR EXAMPLE, SECTS OF  PROTESTANTS." Here you have it  clearly. From this we may put in the  word Protestants, or "Sects of Protestants" from the above quotation. Then  we are told that "The Church, abso-  -i ��������� ' i'ii < <. ii     ���������     i  i      i   ��������� ���������       _  tutely speaking, has the right to tiring cause that the machine matriptilai  Beets of ProteBtants to death."  What do you think ot this for doctrine? I am inclined to think your  better manhood would revolt againBt  such teaching, and especially so long  as you are in control of your temper  and aie moved by the spirit of gentle-  i nesB and a large-hearted love.  Howe\er, the point is here You  fiercely object to the words: "Many  opinions are to be forbidden, even to  war and bloodshed," as though this  dops not represent the teaching of  your political church, and exactly sets  forth the spirit of those who so teach.  The writers who teach the greater will  surely teach, the lesser, which is but a  part. Any men who would teach that  it is right to kill heretics, would teach  that "war and bloodshed" are very  legitimate weapons in furthering the  of people and governments have  heart, ., r    _��������� "     *  In closing this talk wltb your) Reverence, I wish to say a word concerning the departure of Archbishop  McNeill. He has shown himself a  j-kind, wise, devoted, clever and most;  able man. If the Archbishop, now  coming to our city, be as able and as  circumspect and as devoted, then 'he  will have the respect of all /our citizens. We have no, quarrel with good  men of any creed or patty. We hon-"  our and r.espeqt all worthy men. And  to make a confession, I have a most .  friendly feeling towards yourself, Rev*  erend Sir.
