 Legislative Assembly  Published in the Interests of Vancouver and the Western People  '7'"'  *2$il������*I  VOLUME IV  VANCOUVER. British Columbia, FEBRUARY 28, 1913.  Ntv4S  M  ell!1  COMMENT ON LIVE TOPICS  (By ProfessorE. Odium, M.A.. B.Sc)  EXHIBITION AND PARK BOARDS  It is a most remarkable thing, and strange beyond comprehension. The Vancouver Exhibition  Beard asks for ground to build certain necessary  buildings upon, and are opposed by the Park  Beard. This is in relation to the Hastings Park in  the east end of the city. The erection of the permanent buildings is necessary. It will greatly improve the ground for park purposes, and leave  plenty of trees of the primeval forest to satisfy all  reasonable people.  Those who are masters of the situation,'viz., the  electors, voted the money to erect these much-  needed buildings. They expect to see them constructed. But there! is not room for these buildings on the present ground, in view of the extensive plans looking toward future expansion. In  ���������ne direction, toward the northeast, the ground  is to be used for' extra stables, sheds and grounds  for animals of all kinds. Some of the Park Board  members seem to think it would do very nicely to  biiild an art structure, among these to-be-erected-  in-the-future stables. This might suit the taste of  Park Commissioners of a type, but is not in harmony with the aesthetic tastes of the public as  represented by the enlightened Exhibition Board.  The stables, hen-pens, the dog-houses, and the  pig-pens should hot be placed in the midst of the  Ladies' Art Buildings and the other similar structures of special refinement. Besides, we are surprised that the Park Board can not see its way to  have our co-operation to the extent of scores of.  thousands of dollars in adding to the beauty and  convenience of the Ha^  If the grounds be withheld from the Exhibition  Board it would not be posaible to erect the main  buildings this year. We would be forced to make  an extended campaign and rearrange the city's  special representatives so as to have reason and  mot fad-fancy prevail. Cutting down of a few  trees in a huge, forest seems to, send ^ome $ueer  people into hysterics, but the trees must come  dawn to let the buildings go up, just as the Park  Commissioners have done, and would do in convection with building their homes, or clearing  farms if they had such. I presume some of them  would be averse to cutting down trees on a forest farm. But down go the trees when needed for  human progress.  T������U ORANOEWANS WEEK JUST PAST  Think of it, reader. Last week was one full of  interest and of far-reaching promise. The Provincial Black Preceptory-���������the Provincial Grand  Lodge of Orangemen���������the Ladies' Provincial  -Qf-and Lodge and the Grand Lodge of the True  Blues were in large numbers and did their work  ii a quiet and effective manner.  They came, a lot of true, loyal patriots, men  gad women, to discuss plans for advancing the  beat interests of Canada and the Empire. And in  session they settled <%>wn to careful, serious,  thoughtful aud energetic work.  It is a remarkable fact that the motto of one is  the motto of all. It matters not what words are  used, the meaning is simply this: "Equal Rights  to All, ond Special Privileges to None." Surely  this should be a good basis for every class and  -genominotion to stand upon. Dare any man or  woman deny that these words are representative  #f the highest kind of wisdom and statesmanship?  These delegates represent thousands of very  sincere and earnest workers in British Columbia.  Their flag is the Union Jack, their sovereign is  tbe King of Great Britain, and their Scriptures are  the Holy Bible. In the writer's opinion these and  similar patriotic associations within the Empire are  the bulwark of safety, humanly speaking, not  a-nly of Great Britain, but of the highest welfare  tf the nations of this earth. If the keystone of  the arch of safety be removed or broken it is bad  for the entire structure.  In everyone of the above Grand Lodges there,  was perfect good will and harmony. And there  is a splendid bond holding them ail together as  tne body when a time of danger might possibly  come to the country internally or externally.  Socialists, Labor Unions, "Melting-Pot" admirers, Conservatives, Liberals, Protestants, Roman  Catholics, Jews, Gentiles and all others must necessarily admit the sanity and sound sense of the  matto���������EQUAL RIGHTS TO ALL.  UNION MADE  BA  CHE10R������������<  Ask the  man  who smokes tatm.  ���������     *      :  ���������  Consistency Requires Electors to Endorse  The Agreement  It is the duty of every elector in Vancouver to carefully analyze the proposed ,  railway terminals in False Creek.     > t;  In the first places one might ask, "What is False Creek most suited for!"  Second, "How can that object be best reached?"  It must be evident to the most careless observer that Nature has richly endowed Vancouver in thus providing False Creek tide flats, facilities well suited for  central railway terminals.; Then arises the question, how shall they be developed?  About three years ago, Vancouver citizens, by an overwhelming vote, rejected the  proposal to develop-'it under civicadministration, and they approved of allowing  the Great Northern to enter and develop a large area of these flats. We opposed  the Great Northern at that time, but wh en the ��������� mandate of the people was registered we reframed from carpmg opposition, accepting it as final. It then became  the duty of the city to secure development by outside companies, if possible. The  Canadian Northern came with its feasible proposition. They had the choice of  New Westminster or Vancouver, They could stop at New Westminster and enter  this city over the Great Northern tracks, but their terminal would be New West--  minster. Our Council went to great pains to get an equitable agreement and have  succeeded most admirably. There is no point unguarded or omitted and the Council'  should receive the hearty endorsement of all voters. Let us point out that the  project has already received the approval, of electors in part at our recent civic  election to the extent of returning those candidates who most strongly supported ,  the agreement, which was then pending. T  Again the Council had the decision of the people on a former occasion* therefore the situation resolves itself into the question, Shall we be consistent and develop False Creek as a railway terminal, or shall we reduce it to a mere real estate  gamble.  As a real estate venture, cut into small lots, it might bring in certain caslt  returns, in excess of what the city will make otherwise, but, as a railway terminal  it is worth untold millions to Vancouver, and as he years roll by tbis inestimable  value will increase. It cannot be measured in dollars and cents. It is like Stanley  Park which as a centre of recreation is of transcendant value. Nor can we estimate the value of adequate railway terminals to such a city as Vancouver. There  is no medium of comparison of a railway centre and real estate values of False  Creek, and those who continuously parade that view make a serious error and only  mislead those who have not given the question careful consideration.  It must be borne in mind that the Council has safeguarded the rights of other  railways to enter over the Canadian Northern and joint terminals, which is all that  could be done had the city developed the scheme itself. It must also be remembered  that no railway company could afford to purchase these tide flats at their estimated real estate value, nor would they do so. They would simply go elsewhere to  our loss, and that is why New Westminster has made such strong efforts to retain  them.  But look for a moment at tbe proposal to have the city develop them. It would  cost jniJJions, and already the large loaning houses of IJondon are warning western  cities to curtail expenditure and Vancouver is still financing part of last year's expenditure on the treasury notes and has tremendous exnenditures to care for in the  next few years. Wfe assert with confidence that the revenue from False Creek  under public control would not meet bond interest for many years, if it ever did,  because the Canadian Northern would undoubtedly make New Westminster its  terminal and would only send to Vancouver such traffic as was imperative.  It will be impossible to finance the development of False Creek apart from  some supporting interests, such as a railway, for many years to come. What we  want in Vancouver is united action, not mere talk. If we change our minds every  few months how can We expect the Government to take us seriously when we demand large harbor developments and other anticipated appropriations? Let us  be consistent!  NOTES FROM OTTAWA  (By Our Own Correspondent, Arthur R. Ford.)  With the usual exciting scenes which mark a  division of the House of Commons on an important debate, the first stage of the Borden naval  proposals were voted on Thursday night. A midnight vote is one of the interesting sights of  parliament. There are usually packed galleries  with the front rows gay with society women in  evening dress. The members are generally in frolicsome mood, the tension of a long and probably  bitter debate over. When the division bell rings  and the whips are gathering in the stragglers,  horse-play is the order, and there is always singing. The French Canadians are the best singers  and some Quebec member is* always certain to  start up that rousing national refrain, "0 Canada." The English members join in the chorus.  That stirring voyageur's chanson, "Allouette," is  another favorite. Thursday night was no exception. Owing to the importance of the division the  excitemen. was greater than usual. The whips had  made special efforts to get out a big vote and  about the only absentees were the sick. When  the debate was finished and the Speaker said  "Call in the Members," the fun started. "Rule  Britannia." "God Save the King" and "0 Can  ada" were the favorites. There was lots of  cheering and a great pounding of desks as the  two leaders voted, and when Co. Hugh McLean,  the Liberal bolter, voted against the Laurier  amendment there was a regular demonstration.  However, the naval debate is far from over yet.  The Liberals are again talking of forcing an election and some bets have even been made that  there will be an election within a year. The Liberal papers are trying to egg on the opposition  in the House to hold up everything. If they do  a long and spectacular fight is promised, as it can  be stated authoritatively that the Government intends to force the measure and will resort to  every known parliamentary expedient to do so.  They have no intention of going to the country at  the present time, taking the ground that there is  no necessity of an appeal to the country until the  permanent policy is drafted. Premier Borden in  closing the debate put forward the Conservative  viewpoint as follows:  "Our proposal is that those ships shall be in the  ownership of the Canadian people, but that they  shall stand and be used for the common defence  (Continued on Page 8)  THE CITY-C. N. 8. AGREEMOiT  ��������� * **"W'l?  By Alex.  Wi������&.  To the man of balanced mind the present attitude of the electors ia most hopeful and mb*  mendatory. Alderman Hepburn and hia eol-  leagues merit the thanks of the C.N.R. and the  city alike for deliberately forcing the whole mat.  ter into the arena of free discussion. Until thia  course waa adopted there waa danger that the  vote on the Bylaw, March 15, would be light because of indifference. Thia would be unfortunate  even if the bylaw passed, but a calamity if it  were defeated. Today the agreement ia rapidly  growing in favor, as ita magnitude and many-  sided benefits to the city are made' clear in open  discussion. The Opposition have not only failed  to sustain themselves in debate, but bave dona  much to demonstrate the untenability of their  anomalous position on the one hand and the un-  asaailability of the Agreement on the other. Kaeh  additional attempt has only shown more folly the  wisdom of the Council in accepting it and submitting it to the electors for final ratification in -  a bylaw.  Now the electors realize as never before that  all talk of False Creek being worth many millions if retailed by the city is visionary. Talk ia  cheap! Molehills are easily magnified into mountains by the fertile minds and flexible tongues of  these eloquent champions of a chimerical False  Creek���������factory���������warehouse���������non-Canadian Railroad���������Centre.  ��������� Aid. Hepburn is alright! He means well and  is doing much to popularize the City-Canadian  Northern Agreement. We commend him for hia  courage, backed by ability, and we thank him for  exposing the inherent weakness of the Oppoai-  , tion. notwithstanding -the well known strength  of the advocates,���������men who, given a tenable premise, would reach a sound conclusion with chain "  like logic.      ,..'/ ,  1 Mayor Baxter "and his associates, unwillingly  .supported by Aid. Hepburn and hia staff, are  arousing and convincing our citizens that the  City-Canadian Northern Agreement is madt fn  the interests of Vancouver, whatever advantages  may incidentally come to he C. N. R.^  Why should we cdihpla in and grow green'witb  envy because the deal gives some advantages to  the railroadt   Should it not?   Are we so selfish  as to want everything?    The agreement may be  and should be of advantage to both parties.  We predict that the Bylaw will be adopted by  a large majority for the following reasons:  First:���������Citizens are weary of this mudhole in  the centre of the city, and they have little confidence in the fantastic propositions of certain  domestic air castle schemes to improve it.  Second:���������A workable scheme to fill False Creek  without expense to the city is now agreed upon  and only awaits ratification by the electors.  Third:���������The scheme embraces many other improvements and advantages to Vancouver, without the expenditure of local capital, such aa buildings, roads, streets, bridges, a demand for labor,  and the introduction of large outside capital into  the city.  Fourth:���������The Canadian Northern is an all-Canadian road and a transcontinental that will give  impetus to commerce, and, by competition, reduce  freight rates to the advantage of B. C.  Fifth:���������This property, now non-taxable and  non-producable, will bring large revenue in advanced property values in the vicinity of False'  Creek, and taxes therefrom, in addition to the  taxes from the railroad on the now useless fiats.  Yes, March the 15th should and will give the  Bylaw more than the necessary three-fifths majority.

Farley, no". Besides being  clever, Rowena Wytherly has a vein  of poetic romance and love of mystery in her nature., A common-place,  simple-minded country Squire would  not arouse her admiration. I can imagine ber bitten with a penchant for a  mow youthful and striking aspect  altogether. A young, man of native  ability and scholar-like attainments,  with a lofty impending brow, large  brown melancholy eyes, and a nervous, sensitive mouth which, unless  when he forcibly compresses it, was  apt to be tremulous, and���������by Jove!  I'm painting your portrait, Mr. Farley.  Do you recognize yourself?"  "Scarcely," he laughed, looking apprehensively at the Squire's strongly  handsome profile. "Please don't insinuate that I am likely to ensnare  the affections of the beautiful widow.  I have no ambition whatsoever ln that  direction."  "That's just the rash kind of statement a man makes in the heyday of  youth. A very young man thrown into  dally Intercourse with a lovely, charm-  jjng, clever woman, yields very readily  to a well-regulated system of fascination. Wait till you are under the  spell of Mrs. Wycherly's beautiful  face, arrayed in bewitching smiles  and���������"  "Are you speaking from experience,  Mr/Fleming?" y  "No. I am only saying what anyone,  may see in Nature's mirror."  "You are kind enough .to warn me  against MrB. Wycherly?"  "Well, perhaps that's putting it a  little, too strong. Say, rather, against  a young man's unripe experience."  |    "Thank you for your kind interest."  ; Paul said, watching the skilful hand-  : ling of the reins.   "I wonder bow it  ! came about that you never made a  1 practical personal acquaintance with  those matters, Mr. Fleming?"  i    "Force of circumstances had some*  ' thing to do with it, Mr. Farley.  A few  | years ago I would have given a decade out of my life to have met my  affinity/'  TAnd now?"  "Well���������you see, Agnes ls home, and  the world does not seem quite such a  dreary place."  I    "Have you never seen a woman you  'could like?"  I   "Certainly.   I like roost of tbe women with whom I come in contact, but  , the one dear woman who should play  " inch sweet havoc with my baebeler  heart has never crossed my paid."  j "What Is your Ideal womaa Uke,  Kr. Fleming?"  | "I bave none. Ideals are always  such disappointing things," be laughed, cracking his whip In the air, "but  whenever she comes I shall know her,  whoever and whatever she Is I shall  take her and the happiness she brings  to my heart, and not question the wisdom that sent her."  I "The poet says a man's best things  are nearest him, He close about his  feet," Paul said smiling; "she may  lie within your reach, though you are  unconscious of her proximity."  The Squire Bhook bis head.  "I don't think so," he said with  grave deliberation. "I've seldom been  awaf from Weyberne, and the neighborhood is as familiar, ground as tbe  floor of my sitting-room. It she bad  been a needle in a haystack, I should  have found ber before this. Sit tight,  Mr. Farley, there's a sharp curve to  this corner."  The mare stepped slowly along the  gravelled avenue in tbe sbade of the  great trees. The light grew fainter  where the mass of boughs met and  wove a thick network overhead. Here  and tbere a moonbeam peeped through  the sweep of dark, clustering foliage,  and left a silvery dance upon tbe upper branches.. ^,  i "Good heavens! What's the matter, man?" the Squire'exclaimed, as  Paul Farley gave an unexpected start  I "A figure slipped between the trees  lower down, that's all; my nerves are  unstrung."  I "A well-directed sledge-hammer  blow to one's face Is not calculated to  strengthen them. Was it a man or a  woman?" be asked, flicking the mare  ' wltb hi. whip.  "A woman."  "One of the servants, I'll wager;  moonlight and sentiment, you understand? We shall come upon a hulking,  bashful bumpkin next. I expect the  sound of wheels disturbed them."  The remainder of the journey, how*  ever, was performed without further  disquieting manifestations and disappearances Into the surrounding shade.  Nbt even a rat or a sbrewmouse came  ���������to rustle the tangled undergrowth ln  1 the coppice.  CHAPTER V.  Judith's Proposal  Weyberne Hall was well lighted,  and bad a comfortable, pleasant air of  activity about it, emanating from the  stir and hurry of a large family and  good cheer within. A deep-toned clock  on a gable at the rear of the building  struck ten as the dogcart came to a  stand before the portico of the main  entrance.  James threw open the heavy iron-  ���������lamped door, and revealed Sir Thomas standing in the centre of the hall,  the light gleaming on the spacious  breadth of his white waistcoat.  "Come up to my place to-morrow  evening and have a pipe with me, Mr.  Farley." the Squire said, detaining  Paul's hand in a warm, friendly clasp.  "I am sure my sister will make you  very welcome."  "Thanks, I have an engagement tomorrow. Will the evening after suit  you?" he asked, endeavoring to with*  draw bis hand.  "Just as well." the Squire affirmed,  mnwllllng to loosen his hold on the  . long white fingers; "if you don't turn  ' up, young man, I shaU drive round In  the morning with the Idea that your  woiad.ls bothering you." ... _   __  Please don't let me be a  source of further trouble to you, Mr.  Fleming," he said earnestly. "As it  is I am quite at a loss how to return  so much sympathetic kindness."  The Squire laughed. ,  "I'll take it out in pleasure."  "In pleasure."  "Tes.   Give me the pleasure of your  society a night or two in each week,  and I shall feel more than repaid for  playing the good Samaritan.  The bald  . fact is, I'm a lone sort of fellow, and  I've taken a fancy to you."  |    "I'll come  whenever I've a spare  : evening," he said, turning away from  the wistful smile.   "I sincerely trust,  I though, I shan't develop into an arrant  , nuisance at the Manor."  j    The Squire gave his hand a painful  grip.  "You'll be safer having a quiet time  up there with me In the old Dutch  parlor. I know the. amorous set of  women who come down here.   I���������"  "Is that your voice, Fleming?" Sir  Thomas asked, coming from under the  porch as Paul alighted. "  "Yes," he said, jumping down, the  reins gathered into one hand. "I  picked Mr. Farley up at East Weyberne. He's slightly damaged, as you  will see w^enhe gets Into the light."  Sir Thomas took his secretary by  the elbow.and turned him so that the  light from" the porch lamp fell full  upon his face.'     * ,\  "God bless my soul! How on earth  did you manage that?" he asked In  amazement  "You know that drunken lout Denham, sir?" the Squire Interposed; "he  does my hedging and ditching and odd  jobs. Well, he encountered Mr. Farley in the high street, and In his sodden state mistook bim" for. a flash  horse-dealer who had fleeced him a  few months.back. I was in the 'Popinjay,' and heard tbe fracas, and I  am glad to say arrived on the scene  before Mr. Farley's features were  pomelled past redemption."  "Mercy on us! That idiot Denham  spends two-thirds of his wages at The  Goose and Gridiron. Here, take the  cellar keys, Farley, and tell James to  bring you up half a bottle of champagne. You look as pale as a ghost  ai cockcrow."  As Paul disappeared. Sir Thomas  went forward and patted the mare's  neck.  "I suppose you did not see anything  of Judith as you came along?" be  asked, in an undertone.  "Judith?"  "Yes. Mrs. Pilgrim came a couple  of hours ago for Agnes, and Judith  said she would walk with tbem as far  as the private road runs. I don't  think she is back yet."  The Squire's thoughts instantly flew  to tbe figure seen to slip between the  trees in the darkest and densest part  of the avenue, and maintained a discreet silence.  "The truth is," Sir Thomas continued after a short pause, "we've had  rather a scene with Judith this evening. She was evidently out of sorts  at dinner and I, acting on the strength  of a piece of .information I received  to-day. persuaded Anthony to resume  bis role of fiance. I believe poor Pelham proposed again; .at any rate,  Judith was very much upset at the  sudden turn affairs bad taken, and  laughed and cried in the most approved hysterical fashion."  7������Wbat has come over her of late?"  tbe Squire asked. "There used not to  be a nicer or sweeter girl than Judith."  "She's an exceedingly foolish girl,  Fleming."  "Yes; if she's dissatisfied with Pel-  bam. What sort of husband does she  want? Do you think she knows, sir,  what she does want ?"  "I know what she thinks she  wants."  "And what's that?"  "Why, Paul Farley."  "The deuce!"  The Squire stepped back over to  th   mare, and the next fire minutes  were employed in quieting her.  !    "Does be want her?" be asked at  length, gently  rubbing tbe animal's  ; nose.  j "Not a bit of lt. I had It out with  him this afternoon. He told- me  straight to my face that be wouldn't  have her at any price���������at least, wbat  he said amounted to that much. I  , felt awfully relieved.   I don't wish to  rrt with Farley, for the simple reason  couldn't replace him. A doctor of  1 science and civil law and an honors  I man In classics and mathematics Is  not to be had every day In the week;  besides, the fellow Is a genius."  "Yes," the Squire concurred, "and a  quiet, gentlemanly fellow to have constantly about one's place. Judith  must be made to see her folly. What  Is her object In wandering about the  grounds at this time of night?"  "I don't know, unless it's temper  and a vague idea of Intercepting Farley on his way back from East Weyberne. I wish to goodness her Intentions had not been frustrated. I.don't  think he would have much patience  witb that kind of evanescent silliness.  At preBenttne fellow has no prospects,  and accordingly does not give a  thought to such foolery. He has bis  way to make���������I won't deny but that  I think be will succeed in making lt  to the top of the tree; still, If human  foresight and skilful diplomacy can  accomplish anything, Anthony Pelham will be my son-in-law."  "Of course. Any other supposition  Is beside the mark. If you will stay  by^the mare, sir, m walk down the  avenue and try to find Judith. I dont  seem to recognise the shy Judy under  the influence of these love vagaries."  "Wait a moment, Fleming," Sir  Thomas said, beckoning to James, who  was busying himself beneath the hall  lamp, ignorant of the picturesque  effect the glare lent to his silk stockings, velvet breeches, aad powdered  hair, "let uj iaaulxe ttrst lf she has  returned. The young puss may have  gone In unnoticed, either through the  conservatory' or by tbe French window in the library."  The two men did a lit de star-gazing.  .Sduire Fleming accepted a cigar from  Sir Thomas, and they-exchanged humorous comments on the weather until James came back witb a message  from Miss Hargrave's maid. The  young lady had returned hull ���������ao.'i'-ur  ago, and had since gone to\������cd.       /  "Oh, well, that's a?! rigSt; Sir. Thomas,- I'll bid you jgood aMjtir:," tha  Squire .said, taking the ciyar froni ber  tween his teeth and springing 'into the  dog-cart.    -  "I wonder who it-Could b.-* wishing  to escape observation," he Raid to himself, as he drove down the avenue.  Farmer Ash wood has three daughters,  and Farley's handsome eyes certainly  had a way of looking unutterable  things, and perhaps caused some devastation in that quarter. But in all  likelihood It was only a girl out of  the village. It was of very little consequence, he ultimately decided, providing pretty Judith was not rambling  about after dark, waylaying and encouraging eligible young men.  Meanwhile, Paul, having related the  story of his unfortunate adventure to  Lady Hargrave and Miss Primrose,  and' been efficiently cross-examined  upon the minutest detail, went to his  room tired and over-wrought. '  On the toilet table lay a large square  envelope, redolent of musk, and addressed to him in a thin pointed handwriting. He took it up. guessed the  caligraphy, and tossed It back again.

London, Feb. 22.���������How ,to deal with  the ^militant suffragettes Is a problem  which is being discussed by the public, and suggestions of various kinds  occupy many columns of the daily  newspapers.  The latest plan of the militant wing,  according to the "Standard," is to kidnap the cabinet ministers, and the  police are taking the precaution to  shadow the ministers whenever they  appear In public.  Suggestions are made by several  public men that women who are arrested and go on a hunger strike  should be left to starve rather than  be permitted to defy or evade the law  with impunity.  It  Will   Cost Approximately  $470,000  and be Completed in Eighteen  Months.  The proposed Georgia-Harris street  bridge is to be built by J. McDairmid  ft Co., of Winnipeg, at a contract price  of approximately $470,360. At its  meeting Monday afternoon the bridges  and railways committee made a choice  in favor of the McDairmid Company  as against the contracting firm of  Martin Carall ft Co. of Kansas City,  Mo., although the tender submitted  by the latter was $2500 lower on the  aggregate^ bid. The reason given for  tiie acceptance of the higher figure  waa that MjcDa|rmid ft Co. Ib a Canadian firm; having opeta|ed... ta ^Western Canada for the p*������t Sfcyears,  The formal bid of McDairmid ft Co.  was 465,000, which was Increased to  $473,350 by the-addition of sums for  track, wotfk and inspection. The com*  mittee, however said that this grand  total would be reduced about $3000  because the structure was to be completed within 18 months Instead of  24 months as noted In the McDairmid  inspection  estimates.  Martin, Carroll ft Co.'s formal bid  was 462,000, being increased to $467,*  000 to coyer inspection, etc. With the  two tenders placed on the same basis  it was found that Kansas City firm  was the lower by about $2660.  Ex-License Commissioner Hackett,  of Robertson ft Hackett, appeared before the committee to apeak on behalf of Mr. McDairmid and two of his  associates, the three of whom were  present. Mr: Hackett said he had  known the McDairmid Company in  Western Canada for 30 years. Aid  Cameron recalled having sold hardware to the McDairmid interests 29  years ago in the prairie metropolis.  Both of them spoke very warmly  in favor of the contract going to McDairmid ft Co., and in fact Aid; Crowe  waa tbe only member of the commit  tee who opposed the choice, claiming  that the principle gf. awarding contracts to the loweft bidder should  invariably be followed, If otjier conditions were equal..  It was declared by Engineer C. A.  P. Turner that both firms were perfectly trustworthy and reliable.  Aid. Hepburn gave as bia reason  for voting for the Canadian firm, tbe  fact tbat it probably knew climatic  conditions here better than would  Martin Carroll ft Co. It was also  closer to Vancouver.  ������������������*'I am in favor of giving preference  to a Canadian concern but it seems  a pity that we aaked outside companies to bid," declared Aid. Trimble.  Tbe decision of the committee was  accepted by the City Council last  evening.  Mr. C. A. P. Turner explained to the  committee that although his $100,000  bond had not yet been executed it  was expected from the East every  day. The delay bad been caused to  some extent, he said, by reason of  the fact tbat the company takin gthe  risk had reinsured ln other companies  He promised to have the bond ready  by the end of the month, and tbe committee safeguarded itself by making  the contract award to McDairmid ft  Co., conditional upon the bond bein?  presented and being approved of by  the city solicitor. The mayor will.  therefore, not sign the contract until  the consulting engineer's bond on the  work ls ready.  It was suggested by City Engineer  Fellowes tbat as it was advisable to  use tbe mushroom concrete construction on the proposed East End viaducts, Mr. Turner be employed as  consulting engineer at a fee of one  and a half per cent, in return for the  use of his patents on tbe 'mushroom  type.. This type' is to be used in the  Georgia-Harris street bridge. No decisive action was taken by the committee.  Developing Our Forests  ' Ottawa,���������-That the various governments of Canada and the lumbermen  and the railways have spent in the  past year in forest protection and development, about one and one-half million dollars, were the facts brought  out at the annual business meeting  of the Canadian Forestry Association  here on Wednesday. The meeting,  which was largely attended and enthusiastic, made It clear that (his Association does not stand for a negative policy of keeping the forests  locked up, but stands for the progressive and affirmative ��������� policy of  utilising the forests aa quickly and  fully aa possible, always with the understanding that where cut-over lands  are unsuited to agriculture they are  to be protected from flre and got back  under timber crop as quickly as possible. Progress was shown all along  the line, and hope was expressed that  the forest reserves would be Increased, the forest services strengthened, and that there be established a  Laboratory for the testing of ail  kinds of Canadian trees to ascertain  their suitability for various uses, their  pumping qualities, etc.  Winnipeg was chosen as the place  for the next convention and. late July  was fixed upon as tbe date.

Victoria, Feb. 25.���������The estimates of  revenue and expenditures of the province 'during the current year were  laid before Parliament 'Monday by  Hon. Price Ellison, minister of finance. By tbe estimates lor 1913-14  lt Is noted tbat a revenue of $10,326,-  085.05 is conservatively counted upon,  this being a decrease of 151,745.61  from the estimated revenue for 1912-  13 (10,387,830.66) very easily explainable In the abrogation of the poll tai  and other reductions in the contribu  tions of the people to the finances  bt the country.  The estimated receipts for the year  1912-13 were $8,192,101 and the ac  tual receipts $10,745,709. At the same  time actual expenditures were.- less  than the provision made by Parliament. Last year showed an excess of  revenue over estimates .under certain  heads of $2,793,755, and*^ a shortage  In a few items to the extent of $240,-  000, leasing a net excess of about $2.-1  553,608. The principal/excesses occur-'  red in land revenue, timber licenses,  timber royalties, free mining certificates, licenses of all kinds, flneB and  fees of court, succession duties, registry fees, revenue tax, personal  property wild land and Income taxes,  printing office receipts, interest,,Chinese restriction and miscellaneous receipts. The items which fell short of  the estimate were land sales, real  property tax. timber leases, dyking  assessment, royalty and tax on coal  and fishery and cannery licenses.  Turning to expenditure the original  appropriations amounting to $11,085,-  390 were added to In the supplementary estimates by $716,050, making  a total appropriation for the year  of $11,752,096. Of thia amount, however, only $11,368,767 waa actually  expended, or but $353,377 In excess  of the original appropriations.  This year the gross total of estimated expenditure Is $17,838,266.11.  as against $16,270,001.09 provided - by  Parliament last year, an Increase of  $1,668,266.02.

FIELD CROPS OP CANADA.  Report for year ended Dec. 31, 1912.  Upon a total area under field crops  of 32,449,000 acres a harvest has been  reaped the value of which, calculated  at average local market prices, makes  a total of $511,-951,000. The area under wheat last year waa 9,758,400]  acres, v of which 781,000 acres represents the harvested area of fall wheat  grown principally In Ontario and Alberta, but also to a limited extent in  Manitoba, Saskatchewan and British  Columbia. ��������� The total production of  wheat, was 199,236,000 bushels of the  value of $123,522,000. Fall wheat produced 16,396,000 bushels of the value  of $13,735,000. Oats upon 9,216,900  acres yielded 361,733,000 bushels of  the value of $116,996,000, barley upon  1,415,200 acres yielded 44,014,000 bushels of the value of $20,405,000 and flax  upon 1,677,800 acres yielded 21,681,500  bushels of the value of $19,626,000.  By comparison with 1911 the results" bf last year's harvest, both as  'regards total yield and value, are upon T-^h; whole inferior. The average  prices realised for most of the crops  were somewhat less, whilst the yields  from wheat, peas, beans and corn for  husking were also lower. On the  other hand oats yielded about llVa  million bushels more than in 1911 and  the following crops also show more or  less an excess yield, viz., parley, rye,  buckwheat, mixed grains, flax, potatoes, turnips, etc., .fodder corn, sugar  beet and alfalfa.

By part of the London press, President poincare's message,- the appointment of M. Pelcasse to St. Petersburg  and the announcement of the project  ed increase in military expenditure  are extolled as sign*"of the highest  patriotism. In other quarters a different Interpretation is put upon the  events. Why all thia eloquence about  a France exposed to hutnuliation it  is asked? Why all the uterances of  bellicose paslons? Does it mean tbat  the Franco-Russian adventure may  lead to war witb Germany?     .  AU true frienda of France, those  persons say, have reason for anxiety,  as this outbreak of chauvinism coincides with the movement, indicated'  by M. Poincare's' declaration that \w  intends to, pick a more mastejrfud part  than bis predecessor in the presidency.  The situation In Parts, according to  some observers, is a grave one .The  French press, they say, is in tho  hands of financiers, many of them interested in expenditures for war materials and in the diversion of public attention from social and economic questions.  The French wer office, acci-rdii.g tn  this view, is in the hands of men who  hate the democracy and whose a  is a militarized France.

Quite recently ,says the same observer, the men who demand an increase in militia expenditure were telling the public of France that the  army had never been so ready for war  as at the present moment. He do-  scribes the situation as being as it  was before the Dreyfus case, and add?  that lf the reaction continues, the  army will again rule France.

But  there is to set against these figures an  annual immigration of from nearly  eight to ten thousand. The number of  immigrants in 1911 was 7,752 and in  1910, 8,142, making the net emigration  12,245 compared with 19,674.

The human being is made up  of two pacts, the Mental and  the Physical, or in other words,  "If Ind and Matter."  Perfect Health is co-ordination or harmony between Men-  tat and Physical, a condition la  which the brala haa free and  uninterrupted communication  with every part of the body.  Disease la incoordinationj or  discord, the communication' between the brain and the diseased part being hindered.  Therefore, to bring a sick person back to health, co-ordina--  , tion must be restored, there  mast be free communication between the brain and the diseased part, the hindrance must  be removed.  Drugs* and prescriptions do  not restore coordinations Tbey  are supposed to act on the diseased part which is physical.  Operations cut out the diseased  physical part, and do not restore co-ordination.

That is our proposal. We say that we do not believe that the  people of Canada desire to have this measure submitted to .them. We say that everything that is  is this measure has already been submitted to the  people of Canada before the last general election,  and that the people of Canada pronounced upon  that question with no uncertain voice when they  gave the verdict that they did give on the 21st  day of September, 1911."  This week was marked by an unusual speech by  Arthur Meighen, the brilliant young member for  Portage la Prairie. Incidentally, here is a pointer, keep your eye on Arthur Meighen. He is one  of the coming men at Ottawa. He is generally  regarded as one of the best five debaters at the  capital. He is a mathematician by university  "training and a lawyer by profession. As a result  ae is one of the most logical debaters in the  House. No man can build up his premises or  drive home his conclusions more ably han Arhur  Meighen. He has the ability of Foster to search  ���������at the weak spots in the enemy's armor and  pierce wjlk his rapier; for like Poster he wields a  rapier in debate rather than a broadsword or a  claymore. He is the coming Foster of Ottawa.  He has Poster's powers of exposition and can  ���������make the deadliest dull .subject interesting. This  week he was talking on the most stupid subject  imaginable, to the average man, banking, and yet  ke made a speech which was followed with the  closest interest by the House. He moved a resolution to the effect that in the opinion of the  House the bringing about of a better and cheaper  system of agricultural credits should receive the  early attention of the Government. His speech  was broader ban his subject, as in a most comprehensive manner he dealt with the whole question of establishing in this country a system of  co-operative and land banks suck as they have in  parts of Europe, and which have done so much to  assist both the agriculturist, laboring man and  ���������Mechanic. It was really a masterly speech, and a  speech of the deepest interest to every class in  1fce west.:':  Mr. Meighen claimed tbat   at   present   there  .was a aeriotifli defect in the banking system, the  ' remedy for which is made clear by recent experiments in Europe.   The chief defect of thfr present  (Continued from Page 1)  system, Mr. Meighen felt certain, was the branch  bank system. "There is nd* question," he said,  4'that a system of branch banks as in it the possibility of that supreme advantage of fluidity-but  inasmuch as the contral is necessarily in the head  office, I believe the charge can be, fairly made  that the control can be exercised���������not perhaps  throughout a period of normal, but exercised  chiefly in years of stress and strain���������to take advantage of the fluidity of capiat thus obtained tb  curtail the resources of the smaller and more  distant sections of the community in order to  assist enterprises at larger points." Mr. Meighen  pointed out that Canada had no less than 2,800  branches controlled by but a few banks, and  showed how in no country in the world was there  such centralization. The United States has its  small bank system, England has many smaller  banks, while the European countries have' thousands of small co-operative banks. Then Mr.  Meighen came to the remedy for Canada. His  statement is worth quoting at length:  "I simply desire to urge upon the House the  enactment of legislation which has already been  before it in more than one form,\but which has  never yet succeeded in obtaining the sanction of  Parliament. I refer to legislation to provide uniform^ machinery throughout this country for the  operation of co-operative banks. I propose to show  the House that if due encouragement is given to  the inauguration and dissemination of co-operative credit banks, the result���������-which will gather  force as time goes on���������will be to meet and entirely overcome the present tendency of banking  capital to flow to the larger centres. The tendency will rather be to produce the effect resulting  from the principle which I now.lay down, with  very great confidence, as a desideratum in banking; namely, that there shall remain in any particular locality such an amount of currency and  capital as will provide normally for the potential  needs of that locality, and that the fluidity and  mobilization of our banking assets shall not be so  great as to d^aw from any locality its entire banking capital and place it in the hands of those no  specially interested in that locality. It is im-  possible to say whether this principle, which has  been laid down by very high authorities, could not  be carried any further than I have stated. Certainly it is an obvious advantage that an institution should be sufficiently large to draw from the  surplus moneys of a cerain community in order;  to utilize the amount in some other portion of the  country where sufficient funds are not at hand,  but, as I have said, sucli an amount of the credit  and capital of a locality as is normally required  for its needs should not be moved from that locality and be placed at the disposal of other inter  ests./"  (Fine Record (Made by Rhodes Man.

Dr. Md-ennon (late of  Boston). The bride was becomingly  gowned in a cream serge tailor-made  suit, and wore a latge picture hat, and  carried a shower bouquet of bride's  roses. She was atended by Miss  Grace McLennon (daugher of Dr. Mc-  Lennon) as bridesmaid, who wore a  golden brown costume and picture-bat,  and carried a bouquet of pink carnations. Uttle Miss Helen Vosper made  a dainty flower girl in a white lingerie  dress and blue ribbons, and carried a  basket of tulips and maidenhair fern.  Mr. W. K. Young, youngest brother of  the bride, acted in the capacity of last  man. Tbe sacred edifice was tastefully decorated witb flowers.  The bride entered tbe church on the  arm of her father to the strains of  Wagner's wedding march, played sy  Mrs. Cowdery. -after the .ceremony a  reception was held at tbo homo of tfke  bride's parents, and was largely attended. Numerous and costly gifts  testified to the popularity of Wa  young couple. The groom's gift te*  the bride was a handsome brsoefct;  to the bridesmaid, a gold brooch set  with pearl*; to the little flower gW a  gold ring set with turquoise; to the  best man, a gold tie clip, while Mrs.  W.
