Published in the Interests of Greater Vancouver and the Western People  VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA,   FRIDAY, JULY 30, 1915  5 Cents Per Copy.-  No^iT  BANES AND BANKING  EN OUR LAST ISSUE and indeed on-many  former occasions, we have dwelt strongly on  certain anomalies in our banking system,  ."he last general bank statement of May 31st,  >ublisbed in the last issue of the Canada Gazette (June 26, 1915) bears out "bur arguments.  For instance, that statement shows $136,098,-  335.00 on call loans in New York. Let us once  I more consider this item:  It is argued by the Banks that ALL this is  [required to meet foreign deposits and exchange.  Now, foreign deposits, at the same date,  I amounted to $96,912,047.00, but there are other  items in this statement which should be con-  I sidered as an offset to "foreign deposit," viz.:  "Due from Banks elsewhere than in Canada,"  $36,481,307.00; "Due from the United Kingdom," $18,259,979.00;" Current Loans elsewhere  than in Canada," $36,375,658.00, or a total of  $91,116,944.00.  v.'.Jn1 other words Canadian Banks have received deposits from foreign  sources  of $96,912,-  :O47.00,  and  have  due  to  them  from  foreign  |v(f)r the same) sources in ordinary loans, etc.,  $91,116,944.00, and in addition this huge sum  in "Call Loans" of $136,098,835.00. -  XX But," says the Banker, "in addition to the  ���������'foreign deposits yre inust have "liquid assets"  |f-veasily realizable to take care of "foreign exchange," otherwise we would be forced to ship  gold out of Canada. Quite truej but when business was at its height in 1913, when-foreign  exchange was most active, these same Banks  had as low as $69,000,000 in New York call  loans, and we, ask, "if this stfm was ample to;  take care of foreign exchange when business  was far more active than now, why "dedicate"  i $136,000,000.00 to thatpurpose when we heed it  ao badly at home."Or,o|o take another view,  we can admit the arguAents of the Bankers  and withdraw $65,000,000 from New York, and  still he quite safe.

IX'V^  4ffc3fc;fti*&_l  m  TAX SALES  S  URREY MUNICIPALITY is to have a Tax Sale.   We are sorry to see tbis, as it is  not with Surrey as it is with some other municipalities.  Surrey has no debt and, therefore, no fixed charges which must be met. "  The monthly pay roll of the municipality is not large, and there should be no difficulty  in issuing bonds secured by the unpaid taxes to carry the municipality through this time of  stress.  But such is not the opinion of the council.   They have decided to hold the sale, war  conditions  or  no  war  conditions.  *;  JJ  THE FINANCIAL SITUATION  UNEMPLOYMENT  THE CITY AND PROVINCE jog thoughtlessly  along, seemingly totally oblivious to the problem which faces them this coming winter.  We again warn  the authorities and the public that a "bread line" or a "soup kitchen"  is not the solution to this problem.   To follow  that policy is pure insanity  and will inevitably  land our city and province into a serious predi-  ment.   For" about nine months we have  been  "giving relief," when we should have been investing the money so disposed of in a manner  which would bring returns.  We do' not wisl^to blame the relief officer;  he  can  only deal with  details as they daily  /Come before him, but those in authority���������those  who were elected to administer our affairs, what  are they doing?  It will not do to seek to shuffle off the  responsibility onto the' province, and they in  turn onto the Dominion. IT IS THE BUSIES OF THE CITY TO. TAKE CARE OF  ALL LOCAL PROBLEMS, AND OF THE PROVINCE TO CARE FOR THE LARGER ONES,  but deal with them sooner or later they must.  Why not call for a conference of leading oiti-  zens and organizations which might help to  solve this difficult matter in an intelligent way.  THE WAR SITUATION  THE WEEK has been one of anxiety to all who  have been following the fortunes of the great  conflict.  -The weight of the drive which-Germany has  been making is in some measure realized. But  it $ safe saying that there are very-few outside of those trained in the handling of great  armies, and these ������re^ very few, whoN have_tfl*o)  slightest real conception of the tremendous conflict which is now raging.  That under these circumstances Russia has  been able to check the German drive is a matter for thanksgiving. ,  Germany .has now her whole mimhood in \ the  S?S*i1  &M  m  m   ^ci$^li^i^ip7^  ^i^:������eu-^  ness men in Canada pay 7cj>er cent.' to 9 per  cent, lorv ac^ would;  withdrew^say*^ $80;p00^0p0 ot this huge surav and  [Sloan it in :<&nadavatV6iviper bent, instead of vat  j^jpdLjL^^  would mean an increased revenue to the Banks  of $3,600,000.00 or sufficient to reduce the interest charges on their commercial loans in Canada by about one per cent, without in any degree  affecting their earnings; which, are already abnormally high.  This, however, is not all. The BanW are  yearly devoting huge sums to "Bank Premises."  They annually absorb portions of their earnings  hy "writing off" part of these accounts. For  instance, the Bank of Montreal shows only $4,-  000,000 in Bank premises, whereas they have  that sum wrapped up in the City of Montreal  alone. The Bank of Commerce shows $4,700,000  which is only a tithe of the total; and other  .banks are in just the same position.  CIVIC STOCK  TAKING  AFTER MANY YEARS there has come a halt  to the activities of the .city of Vancouver.  It is now time to take stock and find out  the results which have been attained by the  city.  We began with a wilderness surrounding the  "city, the resources of. which were at that time at  the city's disposal.  There was unlimited water power going,to  waste.  ' Alongside of this there was the certainly  that the city would require an ever-increasing  supply of power for civic purposes and that her  citizens would need very large supplies for  domestic and industrial purposes. None of these  sources of supply, however, have been obtained by the city.  The city had in the heart of it a great  stretch of land in False Creek. There was certain potential value in this land sufficient to  liquidate the full amount of the city's debt.  The city has alienated all this land to the  railroads and in return has received nothing;  not even the source of employment which might  have been obtained even this year by the insisting in the building of the Great Northern depot.  The city could then have obtained the timber lands at the head of Seymour creek from  the government as a source of water supply,  and park. Failing to do this at the right time  the city has placed itself under debt to purchase  a "comparatively small area for the purpose of  the water supply conservation.  . In the year 1910, .through the efforts of Mr.  Stevens then alderman for Ward V., an amendment was secured to the city charter compelling  the city to set aside $500,000.00 annually for the  ^JpoBe of purchasing the B. C. Electric Rail-  mrf and Lighting system; sine*'that"time absolutely nothing has been done to carry out this  far-sighted policy.   Will this also fail, like so  many other items in our civic policy, for lack'  of competent administrative ability f    ������  .

JV. J.  Bowser, in a very clear and forceful manner,  gave a splendid reply to the famous "Crisis in  B. C." He proved beyond a doubt that the  Ministerial Union of the ��������� Lower Mainland were  woefully misled by Moses B. Cotsworth, regardless of their statement in the foreword of the  pamphlet, and that the re*al "Crisis in B. C."  was when Mr. Cotsworth was dismissed by the  government at Victoria.  The Attorney-General said that some one, in  discussing the pamphlet, had said that "there  was a lie on every page."   Regarding this he  Vcould safely add that "there was at least five  :mis-statements on every page."  He%  clearly    vindicated    with    indisputable  -proofs, every allegation levelled at himself and  the government,  and so thoroughly discredited  "the entire pamphlet, that everyone clearly felt  that a mighty hoax had been perpetrated on the  reverend gentlemen, and that the statements in  .the pamphlet from beginning to end were a complete misrepresentation of facts and allegations  that could not be substantiated.   He also showed where the real author of the pamphlet was  guilty of many charges   laid   at. the   door   of  ..others.

In the meantime there are several possibilities. One is that there will be a drive against  the Allies on the western frontier.  Another is that there will be a drive against  the allies and the neutrals in the Balkans. The  object of such a drive would be fiTany fold. To  relieve the Turks would be one. To continue to  block Russia from the use of the Dardanelles  through which she could export her grain, etc.,  and thus relieve her ruinous exchange charges  on the one hand and freely import the needed  war supplies on the other, would be a second.  To threaten, and if possible carry with them the  Balkan neutrals would be a third. To obtain the  coveted entrance to the Turkish Empire would  be   a  fourth,  and so   on.  If, therefore, there remain strength in the  Teuton machine we may look for things to move  in that direction.  On the part of the Allies it is to be expected  that the strange calm which has hovered over  the west will prove to be a harbinger for a  storm. That Kitchener and Joffre will long be  content to hold their lines simply is not to be  expected.  That some of the neutrals will soon be in the  field seems likely. XX"  With all this there is the imperative necessity that the allies continue to increase their  strength. To this end there must be rapid recruiting still on the part of Britain. Every  man is needed either as a recruited manor as  a registered reserve ready <for the call to the  colors at need. Failure on the part of any great  number of men to enlist must bring conscription. It is not, perhaps that the man who does  not enlist is cowardly. If he were he would be  better out of the ranks than in. But he has not  as yet recognized the need. If others choose  to go let-them go, for him he has not seen the  necessity. That is all. Well, the necessity is  there, and if he has not the vision to see it  then others who have must see it for him and  call upon him with the authority of the Empire  to go and do his duty. Certain it is that when  he becomes experimentally acquainted with the  conditions he will thank the influence which  constrained him to do his duty.  T,i"~  &j*^V'&  mm to provide for men.

TJtt! PACIFIC majJWAY ANP  THE SUItRBY WUNJOJPAI. fcAWS  SURREY has a system of roads which can only  be excused by the fact  that the municipality  has been carried on without debt.  The municipal roads are bad. That is putting it mildly. Accidents to motor cars are of  not unfrequent occurrence. To speed over these  roads would be to wrec*k the car even though  it kept the road on its wheels.  But the government has been busy building  through Surrey the International highway. Parts  of this have been brought into fair shape, and it  is possible to make fair time over pieces of this  , which are finished, without unduly endangering  the car or the passengers.  _On these stretches there has been placed, so  it is alleged, traps to catch the unwary motorist,  who, having been exasperated and delayed by  the Surrey-made roads, tries to make a little  speed on such stretches of the government-made  roads as are usable.  Along such stretches special constables are  placed with a mechanical device for the catching the unwary speeder, and the net is effective.  There are no constables watehing the ordinary Surrey * roads. Here speeding is impossible.  It is like the small municipal mind to find in  the government-made road, not so much a good  j?oad,to relieve the acknowledsjedly too slow  traffic of the Surrey roads as to a new source  of revenue to the municipal coffers, and of. fees  to her officials by preying on the unwary motorist who' uses the road.  We suggest that all roads built by the province shall he under the jurisdiction of the province, and that all fines imposed on those using  them shall go to the treasury of the province  only.

STEVENS said in his interview in  the various dailies of the city regarding the  financial conditions at the preseilt time and  for the immediate future is very opportune  and as far as it goes, is right.  '      ^ -  But it must be remembered that all the  ground cannot be covered in a short interview,  'and there are considerations which enter largely into the general situation which did not enter, into the matter which Mr. Stevens discussed  at all. ���������^  Mr. Stevens dealt with the fprm of financing  which has been the usual thing With our municipalities and cities.  This form of financing is almost entirely  made up of obtaining monies by loans from  abroad. And this form of financing is naturally bound to be difficult for some time to come.  The mother country is spending money aa it  has never been spent before. She is also financing other countries for the war in an entirely  unprecedented way. Thus the available mon- ���������  ies for loan purposes will be first at the disposal of herself and her allies for war purposes  before the calls of Canadian cities and-municipalities are heard. Money will be, therefore,  hard to borrow for these purposes until all these  matters are financed.  But as to the available money for the business purposes in Canada, and indeed for other  purposes as well the article dealing with "Banks  and Banking" by Mr. Stevens in this week's  issue will fully show. -   ���������  Some time the Dominion and her cities will  stop borrowing and will use the money of the  country for her own purposes. Perforce that  time has come now if she is to cany on her  business. And with the necessity has come the  opportunity.  There will come into Canada this year as a  direct result of the war say double the money  for the crop which that crop would bring under  normal circumstances.  Thus there is under cultivation 25 per 'cent,'  more land than there- has been before.  The prices this year will net forty per cent,  above theusual^ iTliuSi'for every hundred dollars received~by'the country on account of the  erops heretofore,there will be received this year  one hundred and seventy-five dollars.  Further, as to the increase of the crop area  there will be  an increase .of expense in the  handling. of th crop.  But ee to the fcrewat* ������fc  the price this wiU all he clear net profit,'the  price of handling not being affected tWehy.  There will be scores of millions of dollars  moreover paid into the couhtry for unusuaVpro���������  XX:f?>;'  ducts due entirely t& the war, au4 all tbat sum    ,.

Therefore the  municipalities and the cities must turn from,  abroad and induce the people of Canada to absorb some of the debenture issues themselves.  That the people of Canada can do this if  they will is shown by recent bank statements  showing abnormal savings deposits in Canada.  This being the form of hoarding to which the  Canadian is most addicted.  Now the municipalities and cities have taught  the people of Canada that the way to^help the  municipal treasury is to buy properties for less  .than a tithe of their value at tax sales, and  this is about the only way the Canadian can  now be induced to come to the aid of their own  civic community.  The real barrier to the borrowing Canadian  money for civic purposes has been the high rates  of interest obtainable from other sources in Canada. Four and four and a half per cent, loans  have not seemed good enough to the Canadian.  But under the circumstances of the cities and  municipalities could there not be offered eight  or ten per cent, secured by the hack taxes and  charged against the properties upon which these  taxes are due.  Remember the interest, commission and fees  charged against every piece of land sold for  taxes, and then it will be seen that even at this  rate of interest the payee of the rate would be  saving  money.  Even for straight debenture issues the civic  and municipal bodies of Canada are at this time  paying six and six and a half per cent, to foreign lenders together with discounts and brokerage fees which run it up to near or over eiffhf  per cent.  Why not cut these fees and discounts out and  offer to the Canadian buyer a straight eight per  cent, interest secured by short term debentures  of his own community.  These troubles are ahead for the municipal  borrowers for some time to come. But for the  general lines of business there are busy times  ahead.  That  best portion of a  good man's  life���������  his little, nameless, unremembered acts of kindness and of love.���������Wordsworth.  $j*������fd$;%'  P^m/A^<AM^gi  ^*._ ffi^fXXjX.. -.: X:;; -y?

The Red Man's contribution to  place names in Canada and particularly in Western Canada,  makes a considerable body in the  aggregate.  Indian names now permanently attached to our rivers and  lakes, towns and cities, have a  peculiar interest to us all. In  them the Indian has perpetuated  himself by a monument more eloquent and more imperishable  than could he erected by mere human hands. It is a sound policy  and but a measure of justice to  the original inhabitants, that  seeks among Indian tribes, some  now almost extinct, for the titles  of provinces, and cities, lakes and  rivers, mountain and forests.  Moreover, on the score of beauty  alone, the debt is on the white  man's side.  The descents of the Indians  have kept with great fidelity the  names of their ancient localities,  and have bestowed them upon  our villages and cities as they  have successively appeared. It  is but a fit tribute to our Indian  predecesssors to record the baptismal names of our rivers, lakes  and streams, and also of their  ancient sites.  The capital of Ontario was formerly known as York. By the  adoption of the cognomen of an  Indian tribe, Toronto has gained  a name of sonorous beauty  scarcely to be matched among  all the cities of the world. By a  similar process, Ottawa has gain  ed vastly by the change from its  original name of Bytown.  Strong and virile, if not always euphonious names, are As-  sinaboirie, Ontario, Winnipeg,  Muskbka, Musquash, Mississauga,  Temiscouta, Washimeska, Asi-  wanan, Restigouehe, Nipissing,  Algonquin, Awoju, Shequindah,  and Temiscaming.  Pleasing names to be found in  the "Canadian Gazeteer" are  Hiawatha, Minnehaha, and Noko-  mis; but these, perhaps, owe allegiance to Longfellow rather  than to the Red man from whose  language  they were taken.  In the list of lakes of the United States published in 1885 for  the Fisheries Commission, two  hundred and eighty-five bear Indian names. A larger proportion  is shown in the rivers and  streams. In a list of the principal and flowing into the Atlantic and the Gulf of Mexico, seven hundred and twenty-four have  Indian names. If to these should  be added the Indian names of  the St. Lawrence Valley, those  attached to the waters of the  Great Lakes in both Canada and  the United States, the Saskatchewan, and the numerous other  great northern and north-western  watersheds, and the lakes ahd  streams of the Pacific coast, the  list might easily be doubled.

When such localities as Whiskey  Gap, Leavings, Pincher Greek,  Porcupine Hills. Bobber's Boost,  Stand Off, Slide Out, Slide In,  Medicine Hat, Jumping Valley,  Old Man, etc., are spoken, the  stranger in the west begins to  enquire  how   the   selection  was  made. '���������?..���������  It was in the early seventies  that the monopoly of the Hudson's Bay Company ceased and  the Dominion government took  over judicial rights in all that  vast territory which lies between  the International Boundary and  the North Pole. The, ending of.  this monopoly was a signal for an  inrush of adventurers. Gamblers, smugglers, criminals of  every stripe, struck across the  boundary line from Montana and  other northern States into the  Canadian territory at the foothills of the Rockies. Without a  white population these rifraff adventurers could not ply their usual wide-open traffic.  The only way to wealth was by  the fur trade; and the easiest  way to obtain the furs was by  smuggling whiskey into the country in small "quantities, diluting  this and trading it to the natives for pelts. Chances of interference were nil. The Canadian  government officials were thousands of miles distant, without  either telegraph or railway connection.  But the game was not without  its dangers. The country at the  foothills was inhabited by a confederacy of the Blackfeet Indians ��������� 'Bloods; Peigans, and  Blackfeet���������" tigers of the prairie" when sober, and worse than  tigers when drunk. The Montana whiskey smugglers found  they must either organize for defence,, or pay for their fun by  being exterminated. How many  whites were killed in these drinking frays will never be known;  but all about the Belly and Old  Man Rivers and Fort Macleod,  are gruesome landmarks known  as the places where this and that  party was exterminated in the  seventies.  The upshot was that the Montana smugglers emulated the old  fur traders, and built themselves permanent forts: Whoop-her-  up.Kipp, Stand Off, Slide Out,  Robber's Roost and several others of less importance.  Whoop-Up Was Pirst Smuggler's  Port  The most interesting stories  connected with place names in  Western Canada centre around  Whoop-TJp, a smuggler's fort on  the Belly River, near the City of  Lethbridge. A gang from Montana built it in the early days  of smuggling and Indian trading  in Western Canada. Whoop-he'r-  up was the name given the place  by the Indians, but this, for respectability's sake has been  changed to Whoop-up with an innocent suggestiveness of some poetic Indian title.  Whoop-up was iconstructed of  square timber, surrounded with  a-palisade/twelve feethigh; loop-  holed for musketry, with bastions and an alarm bell, and was  about 300 yards square. The forth! cations of this place alone, it  is said, cost $12,000. It contained  much good food as well as drink,  and immediately became the metropolis of the whiskey smugglers.  The place derived its name  from the fact that it was a central meeting place for smugglers, where they had great carousals, and were accuseomed to  whoop it up (Western American  phraseology for make a great  noise). Henceforth only a few  Indians were allowed inside the  fort at a time,, the rest being  served on the outside that gave  the place its rather peculiar name.  The Blackfeet loved a man  hunt better than a buffalo hunt.  The trail by which the whiskey  smugglers came from Fort Benton zigzagged over the rolling  prairie, mainly following the bottoms of precipitous coulees and  ravines, for a distance of 700  miles to Whoop-up. Heavy wagons with canvas top and yokes  of fifteen and twenty oxen drew  the freight of liquor through the  devious passes that connected ravine with ravine.  The Blackfeet were probably  the best horsemen in the woyld.  There were places where the wagons got mired, and where the defiles were exceptionally narrow,  oxen and wagons had to be rafted across rain-swollen streams  and sloughs. With a yelling of incarnate fiends that would have  stampeded more sober brutes  than oxen drawing kegs  of whiskey, down swooped the  Blackfeet at just these hard  spots.   Sometimes the raids took  SEXvvSSHHI  __E_^^������^!������i_H_^___Hm  mm  H__I__k1__I  K_Hi-P?7L',-_B_H  _l____i_________l_________ill  W\WOF������SataW*\\\\\  E_H_R_r^ii^XXii������_B  ^_B^^DHS_flU_usw^������ _&':,-vt=3^^B  ^^^H^Hxj^H  |^^^H  38HHHHHHHH  ______________^vX^_l_____l  ___________H������;'-^<:f______|  ONE OF THE HORTICULTUBAL DISPLAYS���������VANCOUVER EXHIBITION  place at night, when tethers  would be cut and the oxen stampeded with the bellowing of a  frightened buffalo herd. If the  smugglers made q. stand there was  a fight. If they drew off, the  savages captured the booty, and  there was also a fight; but in  this case the victims were the Indians themselves killed in their  drunken brawls.  The smugglers were too wary  to call down attack from the entire Mounted Police force by attempting armed resistance. They  played the well-known game of  smugglers the world over. Their  place lay in the bottom of a deep  ravine. In one side was a defile  in the hills known as "Slide  Out"; on the other side was a  narrow pass called '' Slide In."  When the red coats rode clanking through "Slide In" the smugglers quietly slipped away  through "Slide Out." This operation was repeated so often  that the two places became known  as Slide Out and Slide In, names  that have been attached to'them  through all the years since.  Medicine Hat  Medicine Hat ia a name with a  character of its own. It throws  some light on the ways and  thoughts of primitive people.  Medicine means more to an Indian than to a white man. We  think of'it as something diabolical that is good for us; but the  Indian distinguishes as "good  medicine" and "bad medicine"  anything that will change his  fortunes for better or for worse.  Imagine that Lo is" hunting antelope and meeting no success. Presently he finds the top of a tomato can, and shortly after he gets  a crack at his game. Can he  doubt that the pie<}e of tin gave  the luck? Not he. He wears that  fragment of tomato can around  his neck with his other jewelry  .and it is "good medicine."  Well, several years ago there  was a Blackfoot Chief who liveel  at Seven Person's Creek, hunting sometimes, and making war  on the Crees between times. JJe  had much joy and profit in a  head dress of feathers which he  called his "medicine hat," for  when he wore it he had good  luck, if he had fortune.  One day he met the Crees  near the present site of MedicinerHatrJ-te fell l^n thimwith  great industry, smiting, slaying,  scalping, fairly beaming with satisfaction. But just as he had the  enemy in flight a gust of wind  whirled outv of the west, and  catching the magic hat, tossed  it] into the Saskatchewan. Instant was the effect. The poor  chief lost all confidence in himself, and his cause, and with  victory within his reach he fore-  bore to grasp it, "skedaddling"  over the plains in a panic, followed by his tribe. And thus befell the evil that leaves its record in Medicine Hat.  There are many other place  names of less interest that might  be included in a list of those  with which Indians are connected in the Great West of Canada.  In the Milk River Ridge, south  of old Whoop-up, is a defile  through which whiskey smugglers passed on their trips to  and from Fort Benton. Once a  posse of red coats following a  gang that had slipped out of  Slide Out, came upon them in  this defile and the smugglers had  to surrender their whiskey. Since  that day till this the depression  has been called "Whiskey Gap."  "Kag-wa-wa-chee" was the  hame given to aV ridge of hills  west of the town of Macleod  by the Cree Indians in the early  days. The name, being interpreted, is Porcupine Hills, and was  given because in those days  these animals Were very plentiful and ate up" the thongs and  leather work of' the Indians  when they camped in the hills.  Leavings is a common term for  the place a trail leaves a river  or creek. There is only one instance on record where a place  Phone Seymour 8171  STOREY & CAMPBELL  518-520 BEATTY ST.

Many places are known as  "the leavings of such and such a  place," but to the new town of  Granum near Macleod belonged  the distinction for a decade of  calling itself "Leavings."  Pincher Creek was named  from the finding of a pair of  pinchers in a creek. Freeze Out  and Robber's Roost both had  whiskey, Indians and traders  connected with them.���������Canadian  Pictorial.

During his stay  on earth his time is spent in one  continuous round of contraries  and misunderstandings. In his  infancy he is .an angel; in his  boyhood he is a devil; in his  manhood he is everything from  a lizard up; in his duties he is  generally a fool; if he raises a  family he is a chump; if he raises  a cheque he is a thief, and then  the law raises cain with him;  if he is a poor man he is a poor  manager and has no sense; if he  is rich he is dishonest but considered smart; if he is in politics "he is a grafter and a  crook"; if he is put of politics  you can't place him, as he is "an  undesirable citizen"; if he goes  to church he is a hypocrite; if.  he stays away he is a sinner; if  he donates to foreign0 missions  he does it for show; if he doesn't  he is stingy and a "tight wad";  when he first comes into the  world everybody wants to kiss him  ���������before he goes out they all  want to kick him; if he dies  young there was a great future  before him; if he lives to a ripe  old age he is in the way,, only  living to save funeral expenses.

The high handed conduct of a Sergt. Major in publicly insulting a lady had something to do with it. If she had  been a German spy she could not  havev been more harshly treated.

NO FEAR FOR EMPIRE IF���������  Since the first day of July,  1914, our Dominion has realized  and risen to a sense of its responsibility and duties as well as  of its privileges as part of the  British empire. We have come to  see that what has been purchased for us by our fathers with the  blood and tears of generation after generation must be preserved  and extended by ,the same sacrific  and in the same spirit. There has  been in the past a marked cleavage in Canada between those  who have been known as Imperialists and those who have looked with dislike and distrust upon  the growth of Imperial sentiment.  Is it not possible that this has  been due in large measure to  too dim a vision and too low an  ideal of Empire? "There need be  no fear that anything worth preserving in British institutions  will perish, there need be little  fear of the disintegration or decay of the Empire so long as its  ideals are not the acquisition of  power or commercial supremacy  or territorial expansion for their  own sake, but the passionate love  of freedom so great that its supreme desire is to let others share  in its blessings, and so long as  those ideals have in view not  what can be gotf from others, but  what we can give, to. them, so  long as they* put service and sacrifice in the place which they  should occupy in the national aspirations of a people whose eyes,  washed by the tears of, sorrow  and anointed by the Hand of  God, look up undimmed to see,  enthroned above all earthly systems of government and, nationhood.

A WHOLE  NATION  IN THE DABS  In the  bulb  of an ordinary  electric  lamp  used,  chiefly for  house light there is a thin filament of metal wound on what is  called an arbor.   This filament is  so prepared that it offers high resistance to the passage of the  current of electricity, and    because of this it is heated to incandescence when e current passes through it. All the air having  been extracted from the bulb in  its making, this prevents the metal from burning up, as it would  do if oxygen were present. Vegetable fibre was used for filament  of the first incandescent lamps.  The next development was   the  cellulose process, which is still  used in   carbon and   metalized  lamps,   although   a   number  of  processes are used now to improve the filament. The discovery that tungsten metal could  be used for this filament in incandescent lamps was made a* recently as 1906.    At   first   the  tungsten filaments were composed of what was called tungsten  paste that made an extremely  fragile  wire.  The  new  process  now used produces a strong wire  under pressure, finer than the  finest human hair. They runup to  5000 candle-power.  ������������������te-k:*.  m.  m$m  fc&R  A-"w*if*"{  'it i$fc������������#i,  iB������*  ''-?*������ ii*^1-  ���������jSfer-  Ja it possible to keep a whole  nation in ignorance of what it  happening in the world around  it?

THE ANNIVERSARY OF THE  BEGINNING OF THE WAR  IN A FEW DAYS the anniversary of the beginning of the war will have arrived.   It  has been a year of furious struggle, and the  end has not been reached as yet.  For the Germans there has been no marked  success, neither is there for them any v great  victory   in   sight.  They set themselves to the accomplishment  of many things. They aimed at the destruction  of the British fleet. It is not yet wholly destroyed. They aimed at the capture of. Paris,  of London, of Petrograd. All these places are  still in the hands of the allies.  They aimed at a peace which would have  made Germany the mistress of the world. They  find themselves still involved in the bloodiest  of wars: with th eir manhood and other resources  shrivelling in the death blast they themselves  let loose.  As to the allies there has been no great victory upon the land. But there has been; a  -steady strengthening of the resistance and of  the resources of the allies, which speaks of the  end in more certain tones than the most spectacular victory could dof While on the seas  the victory of the British fleet has been so  sweeping and so continuous as to become a matter of;-course.'  And now the anniversary'of the year of war  is upon us.  There will be efforts to mark this made  on either side.  If there is anything in the Zeppelin raid  upon the city of London it is likely to come  then.  xV'.-X.V.-''       - X'VX-/'  If there is a possibility of a-general submarine effort we may see it on that date, x  If it is within the plans of the allies to make  a forward movement we may see it launched  on that day.

The purposes of the gathering are  "to express determination to do all in our power  to bring the war to a successful conclusion and  do to all in our power to bring the war to a  successful-conclusion* and-to invoke -divine blessing upon our efforts."  About twenty-five prominent men have been  asked to deliver addresses, which must not be  longer than ten minutes' duration.  It is probable that a service will be held in  one church of each denomination, and the starting point of the parade is yet to be fixed. Col.  Worsnop has promised the hearty co-operation  of the militia and Mr. Abe, Japanese consul, and  Mr. Delia, Italian consul, have done the same  with regard to their compatriots. Among the  bands that of the Industrial School, Point Grey,  has promised to be present. The gentlemen who  have been invited to speak on the unique occasion are: Sir Charles Hibbert Tubber, Principal7  John Mackay, of Westminster Hall, Mr. R. It.  Maitland, Mr. H. H.

FOEESTBT BUILDING���������VANCOUVER -EXHIBITION  VANCOUVER EXHIBITION  THE VANCOUVER EXHIBITION, August 13th  to 21st, will secure stock this year which has  never been equalled before on this coast, both  in quality and quantity.  This season the officials are giving increased  space to the vegetables and garden truck which  will be shown to good advantage in the Transportation Building, along with interesting model  villages showing the best methods of marketing  eggs as compared with the old way used by the  farmer in reaching the retailer and the consumer. Bees also come in as an attraction, and  there will be a couple of swarms at work.  The Transportation Building will be the home  of the ^flowers this year, as the Horticultural  Building has been transformed into a Fine Arts  Building. This exhibit promises to be more  ^ [widely patronized than ever this year, as the  season is quite two weeks earlier than last year  and the prize list has been augmented to a great  extent by handsome trophies donated by. the  Vancouver Horticultural Society. This interesting exhibit will no doubt attract a great number  of admirers this year.  Indications are that the exhibits in the big  Industrial Building at the fair this yearSwill  be' many and varied. The latest in electric,  lights, sewing machines, hardware of all varieties and for every use, food of every description, confectionery, china, furniture and a hundred and one other things of this kind will be  exhibited. v  \ The cattle exhibits will be unsurpassed this  year.   Holsteins, Ayrshires, Jerseys and Guernseys will be out in force, some very good animals being imported from as far east as Noya  ��������� Scotia.     V.  The Forestry Exhibit will be specially interesting and extensive- The splendid $3,000 prp7  vinciai government collection of timber and forestry products deserves special mention. _Ac-  tual specimens and large photographs will be  used by the government to show just how big  and fine British Columbia's timber wealth is.  The visitors will approach the big' display  through the north door of the massive forestry  building which is itself no mean sample of B. C.  timber. .      '      ' ���������,,  , The big logs, just as they stand in the shady  green forests of the province will be shown. Besides the actual specimens large photographs illustrative of forest scenes will be displayed. The  various diseases and pests which afflict timber  will be exhibited.  Lumbering operations will he carefully portrayed and1 will give eastern visitors especially  an excellent idea bow this extensive industry is  carried on. . .  The shingle industry will he exhaustively  treated. The huge standing cedar trees will he  shown, then the blocks sawn from _ the parent  logs in neatrcleai-cW  shingle bolts and other operations will be interestingly illustrated and samples shown.  The mineral display will be up to the standard, while the dogs and poultry will attract  numbers. X  A Better Babies Contest again this year will  interest the mothers, under, the auspices of the  Women's Home Companion and Local Council  of Women. This part of the exhibition was a  decided success last year, and promises to be  even more successful this year.  Among the many district displays will be one  by Jtfr. E. F. Laws, of the "Rayfield Ranch."  Grand Forks, B. C. The agricultural exhibits  will of themselves justify long trips from the!  interior towns to Vancouver when the fair is  opened. It is the announced intention of the  Dominion government experts to be in attendance at its display. Photographs and exhaustive  treatises on the various methods followed in producing the best crops, best live stock and best  dairy products will be distributed, so this one  department of the Fair will be a liberal education in itself.  There is to be in the Manufacturing Building  a display of "Made in B.

Even in this period of stress,  when we have reason if ever a  people had to save our income,  the holes remain. Our propen-  ityfor saving may still be compared with that of a sieve.

FOREST    FIRES  >The , last weekly telegraphic  reports received by the Minister  of Lands concerning the forest  fire hazard were very encouraging, every district reporting several days of rain accompanied by  cool weather. A few fires occurred in slash, but were extinguished without trouble and expense, the fire stopping in every  instance as soqn as "green timber  was reached.  As a result of the general rains  which fell over the entire province last week, the fire hazard  is less than during a normal season, and virgin timber ~ is rendered safe until about August 1st.  A few days of dry, hot weather  will, hdwever, place cut-over  lands and old burns in an inflammable condition and render  the extinguishment of any fires  now burning very difficult and  expensive. If drier weather  should continue for any considerable period there is serious danger that such fires would continue to smoulder until the green  timber is in a condition to burn,  and it is, therefore, important  that all fires be completely extinguished.  An interesting item concerning  the development of the lumber  industry in the northern interior  is reported from Tete Juane. The  Northern Construction Company,  which constructed a mill on the  Upper Fraser River for the purpose of sawing lumber for use  on the C. N. R. has shipped 3.-  500,000 feet of spruce lumber to  Edmonton. The province realized the sum of $5,500 in royalties and stumpage from this shipment.

Editor Western Call:  i  Dear Siry-r-Will you kindly give  space in your next issue to the  following letter, which the Province does nOt seem ready to publish,  and much oblige  'Sincerely yours,  WM.  ELLIOTT.  That   "Tobacco   aad   Cigarette  (Ah Open: Letter to the Editor of  the Province)  It is surely time somebody  spoke out, Mr. Editor, against  your part in the above. The action of the Toronto Conference  of the Methodist ,cburch seems  to have produced a strong reaction in the wrong direction. The  criticism of that action in R. C.  has been well met in a recent  letter tothe Vancouver Sun.; from  the Rev. C. W. Wbittaker,; ih  which he urges that we cannot  adequately judge of conditions  in Ontario, and that the men  who passed the resolution are  among the foremost in sending  their sons to the front. The resolution may have been a little  sweeping and indiscriminate, as  related^tO-slaves.of the;habit in  the trenches, but was more to  the point than your suggestion  that probably some of those voting for it had a pipe in' their  pocket at the time. Evidently  you do not know that every Methodist minister in Canada is a  pledged abstainer from tobacco,  under General Conference role,  passed by an equal number of  laymen and ministers. But you  certainly know that this church  is one of the largest among us,  and a mighty force for good  wherever found.  Mr. Editor, it has not been  shown that the victims of the  It a hit cannot furnish themselves,  in the firing line, with all the tobacco they crave; that the users  are more efficient than the non-  users ; or that the raising a fund  io furnish the men, with "the  weed" is by any means the best  use of money for the soldiers'  aid.  As a general movement, the  serious feature of this tobacco-  supplying is the cool assumption  underlying it, that the habit is  unobjectionable; whereas there  are many thousands who have  not bowed to this Baal, and every  intelligent person who does even  a little observing and thinking  knows it is bad. I have before  me a little tract, written by a  medical man���������not a parson���������giving "17 reasons" against it, all  valid and unanswerable, but there  is no need, here, to name any  such reasons; the case is too  patent.  To make" matters worse, yours  is a "Tobacco - and Cigarette  Fund.'' Why not rather, a Tobacco and Cigar Fund, or a  Tobacco and Pipe Fund? And it  is collected by���������little' hoys and  girls who are Opehly eulogized  for it in your columns! Surely  you know that the cigarette is  utterly indefensible/ and that the  work against it is to be done  largely among hoys. So that your  lise and praise of the boys comet  ^erildusly near to a glorying in  .yourvs]bame.."::'; "k./',  yi should prefer that my boy at  the front���������one of two still left���������-  should receive a gashing wound  from the Germans, or come home  somewhat mutilated for life, than  return with an acquired enslavement to tobacco.  Tour ^attitude, JR������r^ E^tqrt is  IhotCgreat surprise to me, knowing your attitude on militarism,  and on the drink question and  other matters of social and moral  advance. Your arguments- on  these questions, though very  plausible, and perhaps as strong  as the reactionary position can  make them, "seem to be away behind the social and moral leaders of the United Kingdom; while  to such leaders in Canada and  the United States they are the  specious and altogether untenable views of 50 or 100 years  ago.  Some of us take the Province  because of its excellence as a  news medium, and for your  strong and convincing editorials  on many subjects; and it is to  be earnestly hoped that soon, on  every line, you may be found  with the forwards in the procession for the uplift and uphold of  our people.  Yours truly,  WM. ELLIOTT.  Parsonage. Jubilee, B. C,  July 14, 1915.

Jane Addams, returned to London, after a nearly complete circling of the European Chancelleries, confesses with surprising  frankness the complete failure of  the effort to bring about peace  in wbich she and her associates  have been engaged.  Everywhere she and they were  courteously received. The ministers and statesmen whom they  saw expressed the inevitable preference for peace in contrast  with war as a condition of'existence. They even went so far  as to commend their visitors, as  women, for asking a termination  of hostilities. But without one  exception, Miss Adams says,  these great ones informed her  that she wasted her time in talking peace at present, and announced the,firm intention to go  on fighting until the purposes for  which the war was started had  been attained.  None admitted even the possibility of defeat. Instead, each asserted the certainty of victory  ior his own side, and in phrases  more or less suave bade her wait  as patiently as she could for the  magnificent and permanent peace  tbat would follow the crushing of  his enemy.  Thos is prophecy for once justified and fulfilled. What everybody except this group of women  said woaild happen has happened. Evesybody in Europe wants  peace, but wants it on conditions  that are to be secured, so far  as anybody can see, only by waging successful war.  The naive Germans are constantly scolding ns Americans for  prolonging the war, but their  real grievance against us is for  deferring and making more costly the triumph they expect or  hope to win. Not one of. the nations involved in the great struggle loves peace enough to get it,  as any one of them could, and  instantly by admitting its inability to fight any more and accepting the victor's terms. That is the  situation which Miss Adams and  her friends tried to change, and  all they have achieved is learning, or at - least hearing, that  fighting is for ends.���������New York  Times.  one  Rate  to  Effective August 1st, 1915, the  Long Distance, Telephone Rate between Vancouver and Nanaimo will  be reduced to 50 cents for one minute  and 25 cents each-additional minute.

THE WESTERN  CALL  7 *  Ar -^/  SPORTING COMMENT  Vancouver lacrosse team had  come-back day of it on Sat-  rday when they walloped the  Salmonbellies by 10 goals to 3  kt Athletic Park in a four-round  Engagement of twenty minutes  >er round. There were scraps galore, little lacrosse and burlesque  refereeing. About 1000 fans turn-  id out to see the fun, many of  rhom held complimentary passes, and for their share of the re-  xeipis the players will get little  lore than the bruises they, received during the fracas. The red  [shirts clearly threw the game, it  Itakes no great degree of lacrosse  sense to note that. They diliber-  'ately stood up and laughed at  1 the green shirt home scoring.  And why not? One more win for  the "Westminsters and the g.ite receipts end, and, the cup stays in  its present home. There seems no  doubt at all about the destination of the mug, but it is the dollars both teams are after and tbey  are willing to stage a four-quarter scrap every' Saturday for the  remainder of. the schedule in an  effort to connect with the coin.  There was nothing to the game.  No science, not even in the rowdyism, nothing but fighting,  slashing and tripping all the  way. The outstanding feature of  the affair was the exhibition of  refereeing. Dr. Moody had absolutely no control of the players, and he early realized this  and left them very much to their  own sweet will with the inevitable-result, scrap, scrap, scrap.  Since tbe fracas on Saturday Dr.  Moody has followed the example  of the other referees this season  and has quit.  The Vancouvers opened the  first period with three goals to  the champions two. The green  shirts added four more in the  second quarter and three in the  final stage. "Westminster got one  in the fourth period. Two new  faces appeared on the lineup of  the red shirts, Cooper on the defence in Bill Turnbull's place, and  Swansdn on the home. The latter  was an absolute frost as far as  lacrosse was concerned, and made  no impression whatever on the  Vancouver defence. He is a little,  fellow, but was scared to death  to make a try. Cooper, on the  other hand, is a good player, and  will by next season prove one of  the strong men on the Westminster line. Doughy Spring had  an off day and did not attempt  to take any of his famous  chances. Micky Ion had the task  of looking after Spring, and he  did his work so well that the redoubtable Spring got only one  goal. The Vancouver lineup  was somewhat changed, owing to  the absence of Crookall, who "is  on the hospital list. Bill Davis  took Crookall's place on the  home and had a busy day with  Tom Rennie. These two players  were out after each other from  the toot of the whistle, and were  very little use to. their teams at  all. Taken all in all the game  was a farce, and the spectators  were disgusted at the proceedings. And yet in the face of it  Vancouver Engineering Works, Ltd.

Next Saturday  there is another engagement of  these regiments, when the sharpshooters of the champions expect to be in shape to win the  cup. Prom reports the Vancouvers are holding target practices  in great style this week, and it is  to be hoped that the trenches will  be in good condition for the  fray.  ��������� ���������   *  One surprising feature of the  lacrosse played in the coast  league is the remarkable showing of Bones Allan. Allan has  been in the game for at least fifteen years and has played all over  the Dominion. He and Johnny  Howard had many tifts in the  eastern league before coming to  the coast, and still Bones is going strong. There was a tXrne  when Bones Allan was the star  home player of the Dominion,  and from the way he is still.playing he is certainly an acquisition  to his team.  ��������� *   ���������  Dad Turnbull, Johnny "Howard,  Bones Allan, Johnny Powers and  Henry Hoobin are probably the  oldest players in the Dominion,  and it is quite probable that they  could all show something if they  got into shape.  -..**.   ������������������  ���������'  The Victoria amateurs and the  V.

The V; A. C. have an exceedingly hard row to hoe for the remainder of the season, and if  they get a brace of wins over  the Victoria team they will be in  a fair way to finishing near the  top. The young Westminster  team are holding the reins of the  league^ in great style how, and  look like winners of series, and  the cup holders wil have to pull  off some great stuff before they  Will have a look in on the silverware at all this year.  VV"*''  * :������������������'������������������' .-  The Beavers and the Giants  are having a series this week in  the Sound City. To date they  have had an even break, and there  is a probability of the Beavers  coining out on top this time.  There have been some releases  from the local pay roll, Killaley  having been canned, and there  is a probability of more players  being sent adrift before the week  is gone. The local team is now  in fourth place in the league, and  the prospects for another pennant are not by any means  bright.  ��������� ���������   ���������  The directors of the league at  a meeting in Seattle last week decided to continue with six teams  for the balance of the.season.

FltANOB'S JJ8WJC0B  A PRIZE WINNER���������VANCOUVER EXHIBITION  In command of the formidable  French fleet which is so successfully "bottling up" the Austrian  fleet and aiding the British bat'  tleships to sweep Germany's  ships from the seas, is Admiral  Boue de Lapeyrere. In France he  is as popular as is Sir John Jei-  licoe in Great Britain, .and, like  the British leader, -he can boast  many years of distinguished naval  service.Admiral Lapeyrere entered the French navy nearly forty  years ago. He took a high place  in the naval examinations, and  on obtaining his commission he  closely studied the practical side  of sea tactic^and combined his  knowledge���������with the -theoryXbe  had gained from the best naval  books of the day. His capabilities speedily obtained recognition  in high quarters, and in his early twenties young Lapeyrere commenced his rapid climb of the  ladder of promotion.  One of his early commands was  in China, when he obtained distinction at the battle of Foo-  Chow. His flagship led the attack against the enemy, and the  personal courage he displayed  made him the hero of France.  Since then he has successfully  conducted several diplomatic expeditions in the Baltic and the  Mediterranean.  It has always been the policy  of Admiral Lapeyrere to accompany his fleet in the .fighting-  line. He is not a believer in armchair commanding. He prefers to  personally give his orders from  his flagship to directing affairs  from land through the agency of  wireless. This means that he  must face serious risks, but the  French Admiral is quite ready to  .encounter any danger for the  sake of his country. He has spent  many weeks cruising in the Mediterranean since the outbreak of  war.-  Admiral Lapeyrere is the same  age as Sir John French���������sixty-  two. He is a well-set, handsome  man, with a head of thick grey  hair and a neatly trimmed beard  and moustache. His immaculate  appearance is a by-word in the  French navy, and he carries his  love of neatness and precision into his dealings with the fleet. Admiral Lapeyrere's flagship is always the most spick and span  ' vessel of the line.  ;'  "SO GOOD" IS  4X BREAD  It's so good that thousands of good housewives  daily shift the burden of baking Bread on our shoul-  ders.

"Meeting him one morning, I  asked him to tell me the cause  of his constant flow of spirits.  "'No secret, guv'nor,' he replied, 'I've got a good missus,  and when I go to work she al  ways has a kir|d word of encouragement for me, and when I go  home she meets me with a smile  and a kiss, and then tea is sure  to be ready, and she has done so  many little things through the  day to please me that I can't find  it in my heart to speak an unkind word to anybody!''

Warning, according to a Tokio  despatch, that the United States  would not recognize any agreement between China and Japan  which impaired American rights  in China or endangered the so-  called,  'open-door'   policy,   was  conveyed to the governments of  both China and Japan in an identical    note    from    Washington,  which was delivered about May  15th.    The note was handed  to  the foreign offices of both countries a week after China had ac-  ceeded to the demands contained in the Japanese ultimatum, insisting upon concessions from the  former nation. The note sent by  the United States was described  at the time by officials in Washington at a caveat, intended merely to conserve the rights of Americans in any future litigation. It  was referred -to as a legal precaution, and officials there wished it to be taken into consideration in the -phrasing of any treaties or agreements which China  and Japan may make as a result  of the recent negotiations.

Ltd*  Cor. Fourth and Granville  Bay. 1076 and 1077  The following article by the  New York Sun gives a short and  interesting treatise on the above  subject, and one which is highly  interesting in this time of great  world change: V  Palestine, it is estimated, can  accommodate a population of. 6,-  000,000. With the establishment  of new political control of the  Holy Land it is intended that  .lews shall migrate there from  Russia, Germany, Austria and  other European states. Thus, the  leaders of the movement say, a  solution will have been found for  the race-old Jewish problem. Not  only will the Jews have their own  land, but an end will be brought  to the discrimination against them  in other countries.  Partly as a result pf the Zionist movement, initiated several  years ago, many American Jews  have already made investments in  Palestine. Jews in this city own  a large tract of land in the neighborhood of Haifa. St. Louis Jews  bought not long ago 800 acres  near the shores of the Sea of  Galilee. Chicago Jews control territory near Cana, where the ancient religious feast formerly was  held. A vast tract in the vicinity, of Joppa is in the hands of  Jews living in Winnipeg, while  Jews of Pittsburg and Cleveland  own 1,800' acres near Armageddon.  The investment of foreign capital has resulted in marked improvement in the physical features of Palestine, it is said. Until a few years ago the country  was a treeless region, with much  desert land. The ground lias  been rendered productive with  soil formerly considered barren  yielding, great wheat crops. It  is asserted that nearly every acre  from the sea on the west to the  River Euphrates on the east, including the whole of Syria, and  a part of Mesopotamia, may be  made to blossom.  American financial intervention  has resulted, too, in the transformation of some of the cities. Damascus, for instance, now has a  street railway system to serve its  150,000 people, and banks and  industrial institutions have been  established.  Soon after the war started  Protestants in England made an  informal proposition to their coreligionists in the United States  to obtain; joint control"of Palestine.Xlt was suggested that the  Holy Land possess tourist-drawing qualities enjoyed by no other  country, and offered extraordinary opportunities for development  through this modernizing of intercity transportation facilities.  There were to be rapid transit  trunk lines connecting Damascus,  ^azareth-andXJerusalemr^XAr  branch line was to draw Mount  Hebron close to Damascus. Mt.  Carrael was to be brought within easy distance of Nazareth.  Trolleys were to take Jerusalem  visitors on excursions to Bethlehem, Bethany and Jericho^  All of this, the English propagandists said, would prove the greatest Missionary movement for the  Christian religion conceivable.  The success of the project was  contingent, of course, on the  wrestling of Palestine from the  domination oi! the Turks. The  present Jewish movement assumes also that a fresh disposition of the Holy Land will be  made after the end of the war.  leaders in the Boston conference assert that the possession of  Palestine by the Jews would not  prevent Christians from developing the country for show purposes. Rather, they see in such  a movement the welding of a  close spirit of cc-operation between the races^ They are ambitious to obtain Palestine for a  national home, but, once established there, they would welcome the  coming of visitors to the places  of peculiar interest to Bible students, it was said."
