Odium. M.A.. B.Sc-)  From the preceding three lclleis Ave come to a  place nt whieh another supposition may be used.  Let us suppose Canada to be the only country ou  this continent, and thai there is no other land on  earth. Then it would follow that there would be  no outside competition. There vould be no other  country knocking at Canadian doors demanding  the privilege of trading on equal or unequal terms.  No nation would be a**kinr' lor Canadian raw  material. Xo nation would be asking for Canadian trade Xo nation would be do'nanding an  opportunity to sell surpli s, factoned goods to  Canadian**.   This would simplify our problem very  considerably.  * i  It would tollow that the statesmen, educators,  and other le.ul^i'h of Canadian thought, action,  economy, and development vould not be bothered  with the present question of limiting such internal  and national arrang(\jn&ots as would be .satisiac-  tory to oilier similar nations. Canada would have  to consider C1j.na"'a alone, as there would be none  |^ else on earth.  By this means we woidd luno to regulate our  labours so as to give a fair dail,\ or^nonthly balance or equipoise. Sufficient men and women  would be at work producing the raw material for  ^.use, for tood, raiment, and shelter, as well as for  pleasure and instruction. And others in sufficient  numbers would manufacture the raw material into  such goods as might be required.  Others would be doing the necessary educational, medicinal, legal, dental, and other professional  work so as to keep a fair balance between need,  'pleasure, and healthful occupation of all valuable  'sorts.  Now in such a case, the statesmen could proceed  to plan and carry into effect a scheme by whieh  1 Ml who would be able to work and who ought to  'work would be kept Employed. Under these conditions the government could shorten the hours of  labour so aS to-exact ly meet all the demands wh'ich  'would be considered necessary. If eight hours'  work would produce too much raw and manufactured material. the"h the hours could be cut down  to seven, -or to six, or five as would meet the dc-  *nands.  This would be indeed an ideal state of things.  Jut in a world where a host of countries, in order  to provide ,!l"fe"T*ft**foet?^wcrming*T^^^^  are pressing every energy of mind and body to the  tesk-of increasing their exports, land demanding  riSrade relations with their neighbours, great and  smal(v'our ideal cannot be'worked out very satis-  |factorily, just yet.  But if every nation, if all ^nations cWld make  use of the Goiden Rule --and not try to over-reach  one another, then that which could be accomplished by Canadians, if/Canada were the only  Icountry on earth, might also be accomplished by  ill others, even though they all exist at the same  [time. , .y ���������  Perhaps the time may come when humanity will  lave been so up-lifted that what could be done  )y Canadians .under the above hypothecated state  [will- be done by all,-working side by-side;  If this time ever comes, then, to all intents and  purposes, all nations will be as one nation. All  being ;as one nation, theH that which is much to  be desired maybe actually brought into a concrete  condition. However we are all forced to use the  ideal as a pattern towards-winch we work, so as  to b'e able to make from the abstract a truly concrete and valuable product.  Socialists are consciously or otherwise working  Sowards this end. I mean those .Socialists who art'  ane men in head and heart. Others are-working  owards anarchy and destruction.  But. let us follow the last thought.   Shall there  [e such a state in this world as supposed���������that is  ���������hen ail nations shall move forward as one, and  Mien "there is no ruinous and debasing competition  [jr profit, greed and selfish avarice?   Let us look  two statements:   Victor Hugo says in his strik-  Ig manner the following���������"Over that sea in calm  lajesty lias the proud Island whose existence, con-  lies me for a thousand Continental crimes, and  Vdicatsp for me the  goodness of Providence.

Thoughts for  for Ide  and Ideas -SOUTH AMERICAN  Mr. Bay of Bolivia- A*genti*-%>|  Other South AmorioanE****'  MINISTERS MUST BE SOMETHING  President-elect Woodrow Wilson writing of  ministers of the gospel says some things worth  pondering:��������� *  "Now it does not take a great man to radiate  n pure spirit, because the most modest gifts ean  be associated with very deep and real religious  experience, and the spirit may speak when the  tongue is tied. I have myself witnessed the history of a pastor whose preaching was impossible,  but whose life was divine; and in twenty years  there was built up a power out of tbat church���������  out of what I might call that speechless church���������  which did not radiate from the most eloquent  pulpit in the other churches of the place, where  eloquence seemed empty alongside of radiant  godliness j where the spirit seemed to have a thousand tongues and the mind only one; wiiere the  doctrine was more expounded by the daily life  of the one pastor than by all the expositions of toothers. If you can combine the two, if your life  can display the secret and otherwise not readily  understood principles" of the gospel, and your.ser  moils expound the life exemplified, then you nave  something irresistible for the regeneration and  revolution of a community; but, as compared with  each other, the reminder of the life is worth a  thousand times the suggestion of the pulpit.  "When I hear some of the things which young  men say to me by way of putting the arguments  to -themselves for going into the ministry, I think  they are talking of another profession. Their motive is to do something, when it should be to be  something. Tou do not have to be anything in  particular to be a lawyer. I have been a lawyer  and I know. You do pot have to be anything in  particular, except kind-hearted man, perhaps, to  l|e a physician; you do not have to be anything*  /-not to undergo any strong spiritual change in  order to be a merchant. The only profession  whieh consists in being something is the ministry  yJ������a?  EBAJIIOATINO   THS    COMMERCIAL  ,;r TUBES OF VICE.  Sir.

The superintendent of public safety decided to divorce the  city from the whole business, and on October 15,  1908, issued( an order to that effect. All public,  brothels were immediately closed and have not .  , operated since. It is safe to say now that they  will never be allowed to operate again under a  license system in^ Des Moines, under any administration.  "Here is the present condition as described by  Mr. -Tenney.:'  "Des2 Moines is normal, and, judging from  reports, much above the average in public  morality. There is not a public brothel, or place  of the kind, where a person can go and feel secure  from arrest. ^Attempts, hoWev  being made by^differeht ones; who<depend on taxi-  cabs, hacks^ etc.,. for their patronage, to operate  secretly, but sooner or later the police are bound '  to��������� get' theni; In any event,-what comparison is  there between a place of this kindj conducted with  the greatest secrecy, and.a public brothel of the  old days, with red lights burning over the doors,  the music loudly playing, half-naked women setting in the windows and beckoning passersby  even in th*c vicinity of public schools and under  tin' shadow of the free^ public library?"  The moral pointed is: Make vice difficult and  very dangerous, .i(ot easy and respect;!hie. Treat  it as ������ heinous crime, punish flic perpetrators, stop  pleading for segregal ion and regulation, go at it  as you would to punish ;i .thief ������sr a .murderer, and  let all offenders know that the law was made to  lie executed, not violated with impunity.���������The  Michigan Advocate.

Dussaud, a  French scientist who has discovered  a means for the production of what  he terms "cold light." made publie  today some details of his discovery,  which It is thought may revolutionise  electric lighting. He has constructed  an electric lamp, in which the light  is concentrated1 on a single point and  thence is projected through a lens,  magnifying a thousand-fold. Thus he  has succeeded in concentrating a  2000-candle-power light on one point,  and in passing thirty-two volts into  an eight-volt lamp, which with the  ordinary light would burst.  Experiments with this lamp have  established that the new light absolutely is without danger, as no heat  is given, off and it requires a hundred  times less current than ^the ordinary  lamp. It can be worked by a tiny battery, or sufficient motive power can  be obtained from a Jat of water from  an ordinary faucet or even a squirrel  turning a cage.  The light has been tried with great  success in. the Biarritz lighthouse, and  M. DusBaud is working on its application to searchlights for the ministry  of war.  ENTRY OR ATTAINED AGE.  Nub of the Controversies  in which  Several Fraternities are Involved.!  Within the past month suits have  been prosecuted or entered against  three prominent fraternal societies to  enjoin them from putting increased  rates into effect, and others of the  same nature are threatened.  The legal propositions in these cases  differ, but the controversy In every instance arises from the Society's proposal to rate members under the new  plans at attained1 age. They have entered legal Objections fo compel acceptance at age of entry, or .to pro*  vent the Society from .creating two  classes, one on the old rates and one  on the new, the latter consisting of all  who may choose to pay the. new rate  for the sake of the sounder Insurance.  No funds contributed by this class are  available for the payment of death  losses in the old class.  The demand for rating at age of entry means, for example, that the member 50 years old who has been in the  Society 15 years wishes to be rated at  age 35. He asks to be carried /or less  than the coBt to the Society, considered as a whole life' risk. If tho  new rates are no more than adequate,  the Society can not concede this demand, while maintaining actuarial sol*  vency, unless it has a surplus sufficient  to cover the deficit that will be created  by the old members accepted at age of  entry. < ���������  The demand is made on the ground  that the old members have "borne the  heat and burden of the day." This  means that they haye an -equity im the  surplus because in the past they have  contributed more than it has cost the  Society to carry them. This Is the  only ground on which they could justly  claim a concession. Commonly lt doe*  not exist. Commonly such surplus as  the Society possesses has been contributed by its younger members; and  those over the age of 46 or 50 years,  so far frcm having contributed 'm  surplus, 'which entitles them to a oos>  cesslon, have actually paid lees tha*  it has cost the Society to protect them.  If they were accepted at age of entry  Instead of attained age, they would  continue to be liabilities and not assets of the Society, and would Increase the deficits they have been  creating for some years past.  CITY  Hanes Elected Mayor.  Foiling an exceptional vote, Mr. G.  S. Haines was yesterday elected  mayor of North Vancouver. The vote  throughout the city was a heavy one,  the mayor-elect recelrlng 732 votes  and his opponent 336.  Assaying Charge Abolished.  An Order-in-Councll was passed  Thursday at Ottawa which resulted ln  the abolishing , of the assaying and  stamping charge of one-eight of one  per cent., and places Vancouver on aa  equal competitive basis with San Francisco and Ottawa. It means that from  now on Vancouver stands a strong  chance to receive all gold from the  placer fields of the Yukon and all  British Columbia.  Say Capllano has Undone Work of  Mastodon.  So great has been the quantity of  rock, sand and silt brought down by  the; Capilano within, the past few  weeks in the east mouth that the portions along the north side of the First  Narrows dredged out by the Mastodon  have been almost completely filled in  again, it is declared by officials of the  Vancouver waterworks department.  Before the city can lay its proposed  me*** submerged water mains across  the Narrows the north side will have  to be dredged out again.

J.-Robinson, 1347 Seventh avenue east, superintendent of the Central Mission, Harold, the eight-year-  old son of Mr. Robinson, was badly  burned about the leg and hip. The  lad's escape from being burned to  death was narrowly averted by the  inmates of the house. The fire started  in the basement of the house and had  obtained such a hold before.the fire  apparatus came into play that the  inside was completely/gutted, causing  a loss of $2,000. The boy was rushed  to the hospital, where hla wounds  were attended to.  Record Cheque fpr Car Earning.

For the same period last  year, the eggs in Vancouver averaged  70c per dozen. The first three crates  supplied to the reputed leading fancy  grocer here realized 38c per dozen. A  better customer has since been secured. During this period packed eggs  were retailing at 35c to 40c per dozen.  Wholesale complaints have been received . from local poultry men relating,  to this matter. From a perusal of the  above figures, it can be easily seen  who is getting th������* cream of the profit  in the egg business.  The first month's yield exceeded last  year's total for tbe same* period by no  lepB than 610 eggs, the exact figures  being: last year 717 eggs, and 1327  eggs during the past month.  In accounting for the better showing  this ear, much of the credit is rightly  due the owners of competing pens.  Much better judgment has been used  this year in selecting pullets. At this  period lasti year, no less than nearly  a dozen pens were moulting, caused  by sending pullets which were in full  lay at time of shipnlnsr.    This y������������r.  the only feathers noticed in litter are  chick-feathers.  Better housing arrangements have  also assisted. The weather has not  been very propitious. On account of  thiB, the birds bave only been allowed  out on one or two occasions.' The  additional floor space provided this  year, together with better light and  ventilation, has helped considerably.  Given plenty of pen-room, together  with a palatable ration, green food,  plenty of water and exercise, fowls  will thrive, and. prove more profitable  than those allowed out in .all weathers..  In Class I., the following pens started to lay on dates enclosed in paren*  theses: Pens 6 and 10 (14th), 2 and  12 (18th), 3 (21st), 11 (27th).  The occupants of:  Pen 8, owing tp their youth, have  grown considerably during the month,  and greatly relish the dry mash.  7 Pen 10 was received several days  late, owing to another competitor failing.to: forwardbirds.

Sidewalks Must be Kept Clear of Snow  The matter of the removal of snow  from the sidewalks was a live question  at yesterday's meeting of the board of  works. None of the members said  much about the matter, as they all  agreed with Aid. McMaater when he  stater that the bylaw for show removal  should be enforced in the strictest  manner.  Aid. McMaster said that the trouble  and serious' inconvenience met with  all over the city was something that  ought not, to be allowed to continue.  Everybody should unquestionably be  compelled to clear away the snow from  their own sidewalks, if they were not  sufficiently pqhlic-spirited to do so  without compulsion. A very regrettable'feature of the matter was that nine  out of the ten transgressors were men  who could well afford to employ four  or five men to dp the clearing. He  mooted the desirability of the city in  future making a frontage tax for snow-  removal, the owner of the property to  pay the tax.  The-assistant city engineer stated  that the extra cost to the city, through  snow removal, during he last fortnight  had been $13,000.  ****************4>****4������*'*4>*  <**M"I������I*.>-l..*i.HMi..*.4..>-..i..|..]..i..*..|���������i.,tl4l.H\  No  Delivery ���������~**������   _No Credit ,\ \  Phonei Fairmont 621  ft give vntfct tele-  fit at all eipeosea tf'  dtllvery  and '  kuplog.

Ray,   the  missionary  traveler  through the countries of South America, gave a stereopticon lecture on his  journeyings Wednesday evening at tha  Mt. Pleasant Baptist Church.   The service Was entertaining and highly instructive.    One of the most striking  parts was. his description of -the unutterable darkness   of those-sections  where Roman Catholicism holds undisputed  sway,  debating absolutely- the  introduction of the Holy Bible.    The  lamentable moral and intellectual con  dition  of these  priest-ridden   people  gives something of an idea of what the  state of affairs would be in Canada <  or anywhere else if the Church   of  Rome could dominate the public school  question, banish the Bible from eyery  home, and exterminate completely the  tremendous   enlightening   and   transforming   influences   of  Protestantism.  This la her constant aim in every land  and clime.   With the aid of the .Tews  she has secured the expulsion of the  Bible from the public school in several  of the States.    In consequence many  of the high schools have developed a  bad state ot morals. This is then made  an excuse by  Rome to  demand  t\vi  privilege  and    support,   of parochial  schools.   The reading of the Bible and  prayer should form a part of the program of every  public school  in the  land.  FORESTRY PROTECTION.

Main St. & 10th Ave.  PHONE : Fairmont 2075       VANCOUVER, B. C.  Royal   Bank  fv'oves  Wednesday evening of last week the  Mount Pleasant Royal Bank was moved from the old quarters at Seventh  and   Main,  to   the   new   building   on  Eighth and Main.   This building is one  of the. most imposing and beautiful  structures 1n the whole'of Vancouver.  'While not extremely large, the solid  cream finish make3 it very prominent  and striking.   The building is of mat-  enamel terra cotta with the cornice cf  terra cotta also.   It is the only structure of its kind in Vancouver and was  built at'.a cost ot $30,000.    The*entire  .first floor is  occupied  by  the ^oyal  j Bank.   There is a large hall entrance,  ;a   spacious   rotunda   and   the   usual  j number'of divided offices.    It is pr>r-  '. ticularly' well liehted.   The ceiling and  i  ;sides are of white plaster; the ceiling  ;>s beamed.   Artistic drop lights add to  I the very attractive appearance of the  {banking  quarters.    The  woodwork is  ' "jolden oak.  {    At   the   front   is   the     large,   well-  ! lighted  manager's office."   The second  floor is divided into eight offices.   Th?  basement is  divided into    a    storage  room, a lunch and rest room and a  vault  room.  The building is two storeys in height  and the dimensions are thirty-two hy  ninty   feet���������thirty-two-foot   on   Main  Mr. R. H. Campbell, Dominion Director of Forestry. In an outline of>the  work of the Federal Forest ^Branch  published In the Pulp and Paper Magazine, lays particular emphasis upon the  creation of forest ^reserves as conservators of the national wealth. He  says:  . "The organization of the permanent  forest reserves so as to make them  fireproof' and to provide proper management is work that requires a good  permanent staff and a system of permanent improvements; such as forest  ranger stations, trails, roads, bridges,  telephone lines, etc. As the forest  ranger staff is the groundwork or all  the organization for handling the reserves, the choice qf the right kind of  rSSa is a factor of the greatest moment. ' The improvement work above  referred to as required on tiie reserves  is necessary if there is to be effective  protection and management, and as  all this work is yet to be done, it will  be seen that there must be a large  initial expenditure which cannot be expected to be returned by the forest immediately. The. %ork on permanent  improvement is, in fact, a capital expenditure, and should be considered as  such; A proper system of roads, trail3,  buildings, etc., throughout the reserves  will cost a large amount of money, ths  incidence of which should be distributed through a series of years. These  works, once done, will require a com-.  ,paratively small expenditure for maintenance, in,addition to such work as  may be donVby the permanent ranger  staff. So long, however, as this work  remains undone the forests are exposed to danger which cannot be coped  with In seasons of light rainfall, and ;  which renders much of the expenditure  that is being made for flre patrol finally nugatory, as the history of the dry  years so eloquently testifies.  It must be expected, therefore, that  the expenditure on the forests for a  considerable period will exceed the  revenues. A permanent policy^ in the  present condition of our forests, cannot be worked, out on any other expectation. The waste of years of unchecked fires cannot be repaired lh a  day. When the fire danger has been,  eliminated and proper system of cutting timber introduced, the condition  of the forests will steadily improve,  and finally will reach the stage where  a sustained annual yield can be obtained .which, will give.revenue sufficient to cover the costs of administration and furnish as reasonable a profit  as a Government would be expected to  obtain.  The protection of the vast extent of  northern forest is a task of great magnitude. The belt of land, more or less  forested, stretching from Hudson Bay  to the Rocky Mountains, covers a distance of 1,500 miles from east to west,  and from 300 to 700 miles from north  to s.onth, and, with traA'el, railway con.  strjiction and settlement steadily working into it from all directions, the  clanger of fire is great and constant.  On the whole, the staff of rangers  patrolling in these districts is of a good  clpss, but the number so far employed. 200, is utterly inadequate to  the task when the season-is at all dangerous."  e* t * i ������<"i"i'������'i'������'i'.������'i"iH"|i������*t'i'������'t'*-i-������ *******i  ������  For good values in  RPAL ESTATE AND INVESTMENTS  ?

At Scotland  Yard the gravest fears, are entertained and an anonymous warning  sent to the Home Office has given  rise to great alarm. The lives of cabinet ministers have been threatened  and these threats are regarded with  so much seriousness that the precautions taken by. the police are almost  without a parallel.  "It is all very 'well for the. leaders  to talk about human life being sacred,  but J;he peril lies In the individual action of women who, even if sane, are  highly hysterical."  This is the comment of a leading  police official who has charge of the  special force to deal with tho expected  outrage. Every cabinet minister Is  being closely guarded. When Mr. As-  ciuith left the House of Commons last,  night, two automobiles containing detectives followed the premier's car to  its destination. Other ministers who  walked the short distance to tlieir official residences were followed by a  ��������� small retinue of plain clothes men.

Need of Naval Defence Urgent  Victoria, Jan. 21���������In an address holding the close attention of Parliament  for upwards of two hours today, the  Provincial Prime Minister, Sir Richard  McBride, elaborated and explained the  policy of the Government and dwelt  with eloquence and lmpressiveness  upon the substantiality of provincial  progress along all lines of legitimate  governmental activity. A very consid-  eradble portion of his speech was devote*, to the Canadian naval policy,  upon which he made himself and his  position clear to the people of Canada.  He also took the House into bis confidence in explaining that whatever  might have been recommended by the  commissioner who rpcentlv investigated the intricate problem of the bouk-  hobor colonists, that there could be no  relaxation of'tbe ���������'statute law hereafter  in behalf of these eccentric immigrants  from an older land.  He further somewhat anticipated the  presentation of the estimates in assuring the House that road construction  and general public works would claim  equal attention, and as large an expenditure during the coming year as  had been witnessed during the twelve  months just ended. .. Conspicuous  among the new works of especial importance projected for the Lower Mainland is a substantial modern tramway  and general traffic bridge to span the  Pitt River and give Vancouver City v.  new line of contact with outlaying  'agricultural .settlements, not only by  wagon road, but by means of an additional electric railway*, to extend  along the north bank of the Fraser.    .  like institution in the country, andT  thus irfduce applicants to join with us  and help put the Society, at an early  date, upon an absolutely permanent  basis.

"You must have kept-in touch with  the chief, too, didn't you?" aaked Solano.  "I surel7 did.

I was Johnny on de spot right  up to de finish���������an' I'm thinkin' dere'd  have been a different finish today but  fer me."  "That'B right," cut In Solano. "You  noticed I was limping a little, didn't  you? I was making the best speed I  could to get, away from our friend  ���������Torrejon's people, when, maybe two  .miles out of camp, I wrenched my  ankle... They were almost on top of  me when this imp of Satan jumped  out from a patch of cactus by the  road. Somehow or other he dragged  me Into the bush, and there we  crouched while the hunt went by.  They are good trackers and lt wasn't  long before they were back, all 'round  the spot where I had disappeared.  Mike proposed to give them a fight as  soon.as tbey found us, and I think  he'd bave cleaned up their whole  company���������only he didn\ have to.

On de way, I falls In wit' Solano���������an'  'youse knows all de rest."  Gomez Esteral was holding judgment in the center of tbe clearing.

"Too bad you are not In government service, Mrv Solano."  The Cuban smiled delightedly.
