What do they understand  by autonomy?   As far as I can learn they mean not only self-government, on  internal matters, but self-government and self-responsibility as far as Imperial  matters are eoneerned.   That is, if the Empire is in any sense involved in a  controversy with any nation that is no business of ours so long   as it does not  affect immediate snd local conditions within the bounds of our own country."  In terse and convincing terms he exposed the weakness of the Opposition  policy for our Pacific Coast defence:���������  "We must judge men by their actions, and .judging the hon. gentlemen  opposite by their actions and policy when in power, their policy in connection  with fisheries on the Pacific coast, I think you will see immediately how hopeless a task it would be to man anything on the Pacific coast. Ten years ago .  we had 10.000 white men engaged in the fishing trade. It is well known that  the fishing population is that from which you must draw the men to man  navies. The other day we heard some eulogy of the fishermen on the Alantic  coast, snd I agree that they are worthy men whom we could draw on, but on  the Pacific coast in place of the 10,006 white men engaged in fishing what  have we to-day? Except for 300 or 400 men they have been entirely supple  mented by Japanese.   "Where do they intend to draw men from for the navy?

And at the best its results are largely  hurtful to .ail classes of the community. By  this time the working classes arc pretty  well convinced of this fact.  Then there are a goodly number, _od t_*ftr  Toiet if legion, who claim to be revolutionary  Socialists of the anarchial type. This class,  be it over so honest, is dangerous to the public, but more hurtful to the working people  who honestly desire 10 arrive at a sane and  permanent solution.  Another way of making a division of the  Socialist camp is this:     v  Many try to solve the present problems on  a purely intellectual and material basis, forgetting that in every son oi man there is  something of aa order quite different from  both, and superior thereto. They overlook  the fact that all sane men are spiritual n*  well as material and intellectual beings.  Then there is a large division of Socialistic  laborers, holding lo the universal belief of  an Over-I/ordship of a just-, wise, loving,  merciful and helpful Being whom most men  call by the name of "Father."  Lastly there is another class who say, " We  do not care about these matters. We only  know that we are hungry, and want bread  for ourselves and our families."  Now this brings to us the crux of the great  labor problem, the. cause of all pressing and  menacing economic unrest.

Alderman George King, who  has served the Fourth Ward for  two years, is now a candidato  for a third term.  Mr. King wea born in Buat-  ford-on-Avou, birthplace of tbe  immortal poet, Shakespeare.  He came to America in 187S and  to Vancouver in 1903, Bine**  which time he bas done a very  sttccwsful bnslnees , in real  estate. For man*- years be had  been interested in civic affair*,  twenty years as Clerk and Coun-  *!  *?H  ?kycii9oow  Co.  m  i\._i?Xi  Mt. Ple������a_nt  ftd VIII  tan in Fort William, Ont.,  and for the last two rears in  Vancouver. During the current  year be has been chairman of  the Market and Industrial Committee, serrins with ability and  suecess. As Alderman of Fourth  Ward he-has used bia innuence  to bring- about many improve*  meats, such as more and better  paved and lighted streets for the.  Bast End; tbe Georgia-Harris  bridge; East end viaduct*; the  C.N. Entry into False Creek;  Prior Street paved and connected with Venables car line, and  has worked for the general good  of the city.  Baxter for Mayor  overboard that absurd Monroe Doe-  ; trine and give aa opportunity to the  ', European nations to .expand in South  ' America and Kettle it up with a race  7 who would be like ourselvea in tern-  ij perament, it would be a happy day for  ! this North American continent.   Tbe  [effect of the Monroe doctrine is that  I while keeping Kuropean races out of  f | South America it is allowing lt to be  settled with Asiatics, and the time ia|  \ I not far distant when we will have an  Asiatic Question in South America."  ^Hw peroration would do honor to  ouch older and more eiperienced |  members. It is a fitting exampleof  the style of the entire address, small  fragments of which we have here presented in a somewhat disconnected  form. Loyalty to Oreat Britain aad  Imperial unity is the key to his debate and the heart of hla imprasslva  conclusion:���������  "To conclude, I Just want to say  this. Bo far as our opponent s poUey  Is concerned, they say: Let ������s have a  Canadian navy, and by that they mean  a Canadian navy which will not par*  ticipate in Imperial wars, if mere are  any, until directed by the Government  to do so. Those are the -words of tbe  right hon. the leader of the O-ppoel-  tion. We say an Imperial navy, an entirely-distinct proposition. They say  j we should not fight until rartiament  i determines whether we ahould take  | part In a war or not, I am Quoting  j their exact words. We say: 'Our  !ships shall be a part of the,Royal  j navy ready at all times to fight in  I every battle, and tor Britain to demand its assistance at any time and  la aay place.' They say to Britain,  Ton think of armaments; wa of railways and canals.' We aay to Britain,  'Too have borne the burden of imperial defence alone long enough. We  wast to help yoa. Here are our  dreadnoughts at your disposal, ttatll  we can definitely adjust our policy  upon a permanent basis.' They aay:  *8hall we enter thia mad race, or shall  ve continue to settle our differences  by arbitration?' We aay: Britain has  for a hundred years supported and  protected Canadian trade without one  cent of charger now we wish to enter  Into and parta-e of our **eapo_stblU-  tiea with Oreat Britain in this matter.'  They ���������*���������***: The British Smplre can  beat be maintained by increasing  Canadian independence or autonomy.'  We aay: Imperial unity if essential to  Imperial existence.'

Friday evening of last week Alderman Baxter addressed the ratepayers  of Ward Six on the platform on Which  he will go to the electorate. \  At the outset of his address Alderman Baxter spoke of an instance in  which he had been instrumental in  saving the city an unnecessary expenditure of $300,000 on the 1911 viaduct  bylaw. He had been the only ward  representative to oppose this piece of  proposed legislation which provided  for an outlay of $450,000 when It was  first submitted, and as a rcBult it was  defeated. Now the B.C. Electric and  Great Northern Railway companies  would have to bear $300,000 of the expense, the balance of $150,000 being  the amount the citizens would be  called upon to pay inBtead of the  former stupendous sum.  In referring to the need for better  land and water transportation, Alderman Baxter pointed out that the civic  government had done absolutely nothing in regard to the preparation of  Vancouver for the traffic which must  come from the prairies once the Panama Canal was completed.  Vancouver was the only port in  British Columbia the phipa of other  nations could look to as the natural  outlet for the wealth of the Middle  West and the natural products of. the  interior districts weBt of the Rockies.  "But it Is not only to the Improvement bf roads by sea that we must  look," proceeded the alderman, "for  ocean routes play only a small part  in the national question of -commercial' development. We must pay more  attention to road building in British  Columbia. We must open up a system of roads first to within forty or  ' CEDARJfTAGE  CEDAR COTTAGE PRESBYTERIAN  CHURCH  Rev. J. C.

The seent of tha  ! turkey templed him slrnns'y .nr.d tho  j sight of bis wife trying to enjoy ln-r-  eelf alone'was a Btern reproof in itself.  A thoroughly decent fellow at heart,  he di-1 not take long to come to a de*  clelon.  With the ease and r,r.ickness of a  ���������waiter, he cleared the things la!d for  him and set them on the sidebjard.  With equal quickness ho rearranged  the table setting.so that there was a  olear space for him near his wife at  her end of the table. From tbe sideboard he brought a wineglass, and  polished it carefuly. Then he we������t  to the head of the taWe. and kissed  his smiling wife, and there was no  trace of bitterness in her action.  "A worry Christmas," he said  heartily, and with sonae emotion, and  though he 1-rnew, in the face of what  he had said, he was lookias more thaa  a little ridiculous, he pushed k:s pla'.e  towards her.  "Give mo a big slice of the turkey,"  he raid, " srd a do*uble hoipintr of the  st_ff;mg. I'll ba your rrnest to-day and  do j'tstice to your pp'endid cooking.  Tomorrow, in a husband wiio has  learnt his lesson, you will find a more  generous host."  And that was the first of many happy Ohristmasea, and tbe spirit of the  great festivity lived ia their hearts  the whole year round, to the joy of  Mrs. Kate and the increasing satisfaction of her husband.  ���������The People'��������� Journal*  IS  From G.

Thn capitalists are to sueh persons,  nothing but merciless thieves, liars and  human monsters, worthy of robbing  and death. This is a sad error and  thoee who so feel, and who would so  act If a chance were given, are on the  highway to their own undoing. And  here again is the spot at which too  many In their dilemma and impatience  find fault with not only the government and the church; but with the all ]  wise Creator who has prepared a much  better way than that in use, or even  in aight. And it is at this point that  the church and the Anarchic socialist  come into collision. Here is where  the Roman Catholic church condemns  the Socialist in outspofcen terms, and I  justly so.  In my next F 5>hall follow up the  question of'"Capital and Labour;"  Bhow the cause of the fierce competition: the failure ot looking to tbe  state to legislate the public into permanent peace and restfulness; try to  prove that there is only one economic  solution, and that solution has not  been given to the world by any of tbe  socialistic or other economic writers.  . There are multitudes who would  gladly put forward a plan to help the  many starving, or on the edge of star  vation, toward a sufficiency of shelter,  food and clothing. But competition will  never pass from man or from the rest  of the organic world, whether bird,  beast or plant.
