Odium, M.A,, B.Sc)     /  Number Two:  *  Now, ray friends, I shall take you straight to the  subject of Profit and Competition. It is universally known that trade is carried en for gain or  profit. ''Trade" is a wide Wm and includes  manufacturing, wholesale and retail business, as  well as transportation, -deluded i* the production of the raw material and its manufacture into  such goods as can be used by and'.$"*��������� mankind.  Take an illustration, to bring us to a concrete  view of the matter.  , Let us suppose there are ten large boot and  ahoe^ factories in Canada. ..These purchase the  raw material and turn it into footwear. This they  do to make a gain on their labour. To handlf  the raw material, skilled labour must be employed.  These ten factories necessarily compete with one  another/for customers. These customers, broadly  speaking, are the wholesale houses. Let us suppose that there are ten wholesale houses for each  factory. These firms must buy and then sell so as  to gather a reasonable gain, not only for their  own labour but also for the money invested in  buildings and other plant. This latter is dividend  and the former is salary. ,,Any man who has  knowledge of large wholesale houses knows well*  that'their competition is very keen, and they awf*  forced to make every effort to sell in large quantities, as well as tV make a fair balance between  profit and the keenness of competition which  comes to-them, from aimilar concerns..  - Suppose -these- wholesale houses -have each ten  Mayor?

BAXTER ELECTED MAYOR OF VANCOUVER BY AG������ff_UUTI01f,  *  ,*��������� - (  This event eliminates m feature of exciting interest, which is most enjoyable to men or courage  and ability. The contest was anticipated by T.'B. 'Baxter with genuine pleasure. What he desired  was an opportunity to test electors and measure arias with all contestants.  His election by acclamation, because his worthy proposed competitors) Messrs. .Jonathan  Rogers -nd L. D. Taylor, Jailed to qualify thrdugk some technicality, places/n the chair of the  chief executive, one who i^ every way is ftflly gnawed. .  Vancouver needs a matt of his calibre in this'epochal period of her development.  Mr. Baxter has many qualfications for the office. A few of them may be mentioned r He is / \  A SELF MADE MAN! A man born to affluence* honoir^ education or po������- <'  ' tion may be a great man and worthy i*_api^t and confidence, but whan * noorboy,< *  ' by application and se__-mastery, forges to^tbe front, ar double measure of credit is  *  Elected Alderman of Ward U by acclamation.  =���������-?  ���������retail arms which purchase tfceir goods, Bere  then will beJhe standing* Ten factories, one bun-  dred wholesale houses, and one thousand retail  Stores. And here we find three sets of keen competition.- They ail carry on'their trade for profit,  at least for such a reasonable gain as will keep up  their plant, their business, and the homes of those  who have undertaken these, enterprises.  .These eleven hundred and ten business enterprises represent fairly fully one branch of industrial activity in Canada* And if we multiply by  ten we get thevapproximate number in the United  States. And this one branch will reasonably represent all the other lines of factile and trade  undertakings.  Now, it is very evident that the ten factories  which primarily are making footwear for the  Dominion of Canada are striving to providei boota  and shoes for about eight millions of neople. But  each concern is doing its best to increase its  trade, and thju^ the competition grows steadily  more tense and trying. The natural result, the  necessary and inevitable result, is that each factory is forced to buy the raw material at the lowest possible priee, and at every turn decrease the  cost ofv production. Here comes the rub for the  skilled labourer. His salary _ra part of the cost  of production. Hence the factory manager is  bent upon giving as low a rate of wage as possible.  He is not his own master. He is driven to this  course. Hence Skilled Labour MUST do the best  possible to prevent abnormal lowering of wages.  However iff in any single case, labour taxed the  factory management too high a rate, by comparison, the quick result would be to throw the factory  into idleness and the labourers of that concern  .into idleness, or into a keen competition with the  labour of the other nine factories. This is self-  evident. 'Hence there must be, and as a matter  of fact there, is, a prevention against this by a  standard rate of wage among the ten factories.  Now the wholesale houses are in exactly a similar position. They buy from the factories at as  low rates as they can secure, and sell at prices to  the retail houses at as high prices as are permis-  sable in view-6f trade competition.  These wholesalers must keep down the cost to  a minimum.   -But they soon find in this attempt  that one of the chief items of cost is the wage  (Continued Next Week.)

AN EXPEDIENCE*) AkPEBMAN: T. S. Baxter was alderman of Ward  Five in 1900,1905,1906 and W2. .  -'       .  To him many interests x������f the city have been entrusted because of his recognized fitness and willingness to serve his constituency in any capacity. x  As Chairman of Bridges and Railways Committee this year he has achieved*  distinction which will be appreciated more fully as False Cfreejc changes from a  ��������� mud bole into a cent* of commerce.  Bis legal knowledge aided him more than a < ���������  , little. TWs agreement with the C. N. B. involved many issues of vital interest to *,  ��������� Vancouver, all of which were safeguarded by tbis committee under the guiding  mind of Mr. Baxter.  Bis attitude towards all public questions demonstrates his possession of  more than ordinary mental vision anbVmoral equilibrium; witness his views on an-  nexation of South Vancouver; consolidation of tram franchises, and 3. C. E. jly.  , in general; the proposed local harbor improvementf and-flfe5^!East End viaducts,  /in which he saved $252,000 to the city.  BE JS TBE PEOPLE'S CANBIBATE: In %the truest sense he is thepeo-  ple's choice; all people, rich and poor, labor and capital, native and foreign, liberal  ��������� anil conservative, and this by, common consent without purpose or plan on bia part  , T. 3. Baxter is the People's Candidate.  ;        His fellow aldermen with the exception of one ward invited him to be Mayoral  ��������� candidate for 1913.,  tn this choice multitudes heartily concur.  W. R. OWEN, CANDIDATE FOR PARK COMMISSIONER  '$tr. W. 9* Owen is running for re-election as Park Commissioner for 1913*14. Tour vote and  influence are solicited.  With experience in this line, Candidate Owen knows what is needed, and is prepared to make  a firm stand to obtain what is best for the interests of Vancouver.  The improvements Candidate Owen stands for are:  1. Civic Control of Bathing Beaches; which would provide free bathing for children and result in smaller charges for adults.  2. Supervised Children's Playgrounds in every "Ward in the  City, on the lines of  McLean  (Harris Street) Supervised Playground.  3. THE PARKS FOR THE MASSES.  4. Improvement of Coal Harbor, but still preserving the beauty and natural wildness of Stanley Park.  5. The developing and beautifying of the boulevards of Vancouver.  Every vote polled for Candidate Owen is a vote for the children.  Candidate.  misrioner.  P. E. WOODSIDE, of Ward VII., has served the city for two years as  an alderman, and during that time has demonstrated his worth. He is a  clean-cut young man, of considerable ability, with a deep interest in his work.  His record is clean and one to be proud of���������he will not fail to receive the  endorsation of his Ward. Those who have a vote in Ward VII, but who live  elsewhere, should make it a point to go and cast a vote for Frank Woodside.  ALDERMANIC.  Many able men of excellent reputation and unblemished character appear among the candidates for Aldermanic honors. Readers of this paper may, by turning to our Picture Gallery,  acquaint themselves with a choice aggregation of Vancouver's men of affairs who today solict the  support of the electors for positions of trust and responsibility in the approaching election  ***���������*********%*������* **********+***���������**������*****************.*.*.*********.*���������*** *****,*���������>)  way, New York, they would reao$ from the Battery to Harlem, a distance of nine miles, or, to  use another comparison, this excavated material  would load a train of dat cars that would encircle  tbe earth four times. Or, the work of excavation  done at Panama would dig a canal fifty-Are feet  wide and ten feet deep across the United States.  The concrete used ip the locks and dams (four  and a half million cubic yards) would make a  ���������olid pyramid 400 feet high and 960 feet on each  side of the four sides. In the excavation work  steam scoops have been used, each,one of which  takes five to six tons st a scoop. From the  Culebra cut alone as high as 160 trainloads a  day have been taken out. It's a big job every  way, that Panama canal.  Word is given out that the Panama canal is to  be, completed by July 1, 1913, one and one-half  years ahead of the date originally fixed.  When, a few years ago, the Americans launched  forth in this great enterprise, where others had so  grievously failed, it was prophesied that the  Americans too would fail, that the project waa not  feasible nor the task possible, and that hundreds  of millions of dollars would be foolishly squandered in the vain undertaking.  But thanks to American energy, the outcome is  to be happily different from all this. In spite.of  mishaps, such as repeated caving in the great  Culebra cut, the channels are practically dug, the  locks are nearly completed, and the canal officials  are talking about turning the water into the  gigantic spillway at Gatun dam within nine  months at furthered.  Nothing but an earthquake or a world war or  some overwhelming providence can prevent the  early use of this marvelous short-cut from the Atlantic to the Pacific.  More than 36,000 men are at work on the finishing touches, and -more than 5000 of these are  Americans who will fling their hats in the air and  shout themselves hoarse when thqy see the mighty  ships passing through the broad deep channel  they have dredged through mountain ridge and  ^iver bed from sea to sea.  Of course the formal opening of the canal for  traffic will be the occasion of a celebration. It is  intimated that at the head of the fleet of war vessels making the passage, will be the Oregon,  whose voyage around Cape Horn at the beginning  of the war with Spain is a matter of history. Col.  Goethals, who has charge of canal operations,  and his aids probably will make the first trip  through the canal. 2  THE WEST-BIN CALL.  -.���������������������������������������������MlfllllH I * III11 tlOWUKl < | Hl������Hlt< M *****  : To the Electors of WARD FOUR {  ��������� ��������� Vote for  ITHOS.

Mr. Trimble haa proven' himself a competent  and trustworthy servant of the efeb-  tort.

He has this year again made a  r record in the expenditure of  money in Ward Six. He is an.;  untiring .worker In the, interest  of his ward and the city. Unassuming, yet when roused is  one of the most able and eloquent debaters either in Dominion, Provincial or Civic politics.  . We predict that Alderman  White will again be returned by  a good majority.

MeSpadden for  four years of the last six During this  time Grandview has changed from a  wilderness to a city in itselt 81*  yeara ago there waa no atreet car service, nor electric light, nor water. Now,  there Is excellent car accommodation,  extraordinary light service and water '  in abundance. Then sewers were  scarcely hoped for; today Grandview  is being threaded with sewers of mod* x  era perfection. At that time the  streets of today were unbroken forest,  or mere "biased trails with 'here and  there a mud road.  Alderman MeSpadden used his office,  his influence and ability to bring  about these changes and thus make  the "wilderness bud and blossom as  the rose."' ���������  He has served on almoat every  committee in the council. He was  chairman of the bridge (committee  when the Granville and Westminster  Avenue bridges were built. He was  one year chairman of the water committee and is now the chairman of the  annexation committee. Previous to his  election to the Council he waa for six.  yeara building inspector and assessor.  Eight years ago he built his beautiful  residence at 1237 Commercial Drive,  where he and hla family enjoy lit*  and the respect of their many acquaintances.  i^tW^a^eitemMMmm^mm  r^9^,������wmm^m^^^p^f&^ima  yy^^yy'iyy^Amyym^^m  ���������'���������erMrtnv  -Maths!7  !'

Washington, Dec. 27.���������Immediate repeal of the Act of Congress requiring  suspension of the killing of fur seals  in the Prilblbff Islands in the Behring  Sea is urged in a report submitted by  Dr. David Starr Jordan, of Stanford  University, California, and Mr. George  A.

"Statutes and by-laws affecting the well-being, hetaith and  protection of the citizens should  be strictly enforced, and every  opportunity should be grasped  to secure to the city franchises  auch as telephones, light, power  ~and-tram lines. United efforts  should immediately be commenced to secure to the city^aihple  dockage and Federal ������������������expenditure on our harbor to provide  for and attract the enormoua  . ahipping interests that ahould  be diverted to this port upon  opening of the Panama Canal,.  "Interurban tram traffic should  be removed from all leading thoroughfares. Nanaimo street ear-  line should be extended to  Strathcona road at once.  "First street should be intended to Main street and Venables street should- be properly  connected with Prior atreet ao  as to afford flre protection to  Grandview and to give better  travelling conditions east and  west in the city.  "A comparison of civic con.:  ditlons in the several city wards  reveals-lack of business ability,  thoroughness and general efll- ,  ciency on put ot the aldermen of  Ward Four.
