Published in the Interests of Greater Vancouver and ihe Western People  VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA, FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 24, 1915  THE MINISTERIAL UNION  THE MINISTERIAL UNION of the Lower  Mainland desires the public confidence they  will give out certain information which, up to  le present, has been carefully suppressed.  Of the severed hundred ministers of various  Lenominations on the lower mainland, how many  \re members of the Union!  How many members attended the various  icetingsf  For whom, and on what authority do they  .Ipeak?  Do they claim to speak for the churches f  1 What churches are included in its membership) 1  If these gentlemen have a mandate to speak  tor all the churches, then they merit consideration, but if they only speak for four or five in-  lividuals (which seems to be the case) then they  re indeed "impertinent," as one of their num-  ler has already pointed out.  [,   For many years many of these men actually  participated in land grabbing and land speculat-  lg,  and now  they wrap themselves in their  icradotal robes   and   breathe   damnation   on  idiom?   Why, their political opponents!  This movement known as the ''Crisis in B.  is purely and simply, a party .political dodge,  irery crudely veiled, and poorly staged, and imposing on the credulity of some unsophisticated  clergymen.  SOUTH VANCOUVER AGAIN  THE MUNICIPALITY OF SOUTH VANCOUVER is again in trouble. This time the reeve  has vetoed th^ awarding of a contract for  lewer pipes to a certain firm. It seems the  lommittee in charge awarded a contract without advertising for tenders. Since the said  (warding the reeve received a tender for the  ime work which was much lower than the  lompany who got the job. On the matter coming  Ip in open council the reeve vetoed the award,  (ome talk is going the rounds of the municipality  lat an injunction will be taken out stopping  le work. All in all, South Vancouver is hav-  lg a merry time this year1. Between brewery'  icenses, sewer work, ahd civic dismissals the  ratepayers surely will have their eyes I opened  }y the time another election comes along.  PUBMO OOITOKK. NEEDED  JjOMPULSORY CONNECTION between the  long-distance and local telephone lines has  been ordered by the Dominion Railway Com-  laissiori. This is a step in the right direction.'  Telephone corporations,, like all bodies ^corporate,  Ire created by governmental authority not for  Ihe benefit of their stockholders, but for tbe  Venefit of the public. This simple truth is too  Iften forgotten. Franchises and privileges have  been granted because they seemed likely to re-  fcult in benefits and advantages to the public.  When the interests of the public are at stake  konsiderations of corporate rivalry must be put  aside, and it is certainly in the public interest  to have the various lines make such connections  lis are required for long-distance service from lo-  pal exchanges. The terms on which connections  rill be made will be determined by the Commission.  -      - -       -r- ~  This step toward uniformity is also a step toward public ownership and operation of the telephone and telegraph services.     In Britain they  *re under the Postoffice Department, and a similar plan should be adopted in Canada. Any enfranchised public service' corporation, if , strong  and wealthy, may become at any time a political  menace.,   Such corporations are the greatest dan-  jerlrftoJpopular government.     Canada has re-  ently had an exaihple, in the burning of the  _ Vnniipag telegrams, of the special danger involv-  [������d in having the means of communication in pri-  ^|pJlB|^ds.    War g necessities regarding the giv-  ^(pp^of important information clinch the ar-  ument. |As soon as we establish a government  H^jjfitmp and initiative we will have all organized means of. communication under public con-  Irol.XGlbbe.  The shocking condition to which the people  |>r America have been brought by the Turkish  |illi������s of- the Germans is described by the Bu^  bha^; (^wespondent of the'Agenzia Naxionale'  )f Rome who states that 80,000 of them are now  interhM^fn Turkey. The women have been  placed in Turkish harems, and the children sold  it auction ih Constantinople;  Dr. Motta. president of Switzerland, is quoted as saying that neutrals are now so affectedby  tvar that passiveness has ceased to be a duty,  ind energy has become the . proper/poUcyy  The Liverpool Munitions Court has fined 245  workmen at the Cammellv Laird Company's  works twenty shillings ($5) a week each for  refusing to work overtime. This news is the  first indication that the government is carrying  >ut its recent announcement that men who refuse  ;o work overtime will be punished. This announcement was made shortly after Mr. Lloyd  Jeorge assumed.'the.: office;'of Minister of Munitions.' ���������������������������������������������'"   -  The Gaekwar of Barbda has contributed five  lakhs of rupees ($160,000) to provide aeroplanes for use on the British front. Last December he purchased the C. P. R. steamer 'Empress  of India' as a hospital ship for Indian troops.  Soon after the war began he offered all his  troops and resources to aid the British.  THE PROHIBITION CAMPAIGN  FROM EVERY QUARTER comes the news that  '' Prohibition Will Carry.'' Liquor men grant  it, they are nofr planning to fight for compensation. We do not admit of any responsibility  by the people to compensate a business which  subsists only on an annual license. The utmost  they can expect or claim is from six - months  to one year's notice. This, we are willing to  give them.  To ensure that B. C. will be dry in one year  from next January, it is only necessary for the  Prohibitionists to WORK for the next six months  and ours is the victory.  < Faithful organization and persistent effort  will win the day. Carelessness and indifference  to personal responsibility alone can fail. , ���������> '  THE WINTER CAMPAIGN  THE MILITARY EXPERT of the London Times  Colonel Repington, tells the Germans some of  the things that will happen to them when  they enter their' winter campaign in Russia.  Their armies will waste- rapidly by exposure  and disease. Great masses of Cossacks are forming, who, when the snow comes, will begin to  worry them. In Russia vast hosts of soldiers are  preparing to renew the war, and in every allied  and neutral country all available factories are  working day and night to Supply the munitions  that Russia needs. The west offers the Germans  no better prospect, even were they able to add a  million men to the 1,800,000 now on that front.  After immense losses, such as they would assuredly suffer, they would be unable to pursue  their campaign either east or yf est with any hope  of success. Colonel Repington conveys the impression that the invasion of Poland represented  Germany's supreme effort, and that failure to  destroy the Russian army inevitably brings < in  its train failure all round.  5 Cents Per Copy.       No. M.  C. N. R. CONTRACTS  TENDERS ARE BEING ADVERTISED for the  building of a sea, wall to the west of Main  Street Bridge, in connection with the work of  the Canadian, Northern Railway on the False  Creek tide flats. The total cost of the work to  be done amounts to about $5,000,000' .and according to agreement, should have been well  under way long ere this. However, ther people  of Vancouver have waited long and patiently  on the commencement of this very important  work, and it is sincerely hoped that further delay  will not occur in this part of. civic construction.  There are hundreds of men who are anxiously  waiting the offer Of employment, and the inauguration of this work will be a decided step  in the direction of relieving the unemployment  problem which is daily growing more vexatious  to the city.  THE TRADES Amy LABOR CONGRESS  VANCOUVER is especially honored this week  in entertaining the delegates to the Dominion  Trades and Labor Congress which has been  in session inthe Labor Temple all week. The  labor men' have found in years gone by much  that was good within the confines of this city,  and-the future "activities ~ of the Trades and  Labor Councils in Vancouver will be greatly  enlivened by tbe opportunity which is being afforded this week to men to acquaint themselves with the workings of the Dominion body.  There are over 1-50 delegates in eonvention this  week, the sessions have been bright and well  attended, and the stand taken by the labor men  on questions ow the day has been commendable.  ANOTHB& NEW P.ARTY  FOLLOWING HARD UPON THE HEELS of the  Progressive Party, recently launched in this  cityj the object of which is to conduct the  affairs of the province "on more businesslike''  lines, comes the announcement of still another  party. This later organization goes by the name  "Committee of Ratepayers." The object of this  party is still further civic retrenchment and it  is within the range of possibility that a civic  slate for the approaching elections will be drawn  up in due time.  X Among those who have undertaken to father the new organization are. a number of prominent business men, and a largely attended meeting On Thursday night resulted in the present  civic board being. roughly handled. Another  meeting in the course oi a couple of weeks will  further organize this lusty young party and a  platform will shortly be drawn up.  Amongthose who were in attendance at the  meeting on Thursday evening were W. M. Mc-  VB'eath, John Parks, J. V\jW Barron, B.N. Kerr,  J. G. Bonterred, L. H. Brett Plummer, M. T.  Matthews, T. E. Julien, J. J. Ronald, W. Por-  teus Jack, Ed. Clayton, T. A. Fel, C. E. Mahon,  Thos. Hunter, J. H. Siintson, W. H. Gallagher,  W. R. Hamilton, W. H. Rogers, E. C. McLaren,  George King, A. H. Cameron, R. C. Kyle/Samuel  Greer, S. A. McDonald, Frank H. Horn, Philip  N. Julian, I. N. Miller, jr., Thomas H. Kirk,  Alex. Read, Percy H. Charleson, L. T. Sankey.  Considerable discussion took place at the  meeting last evening and much eritisiem" of the  present council in its executive capacity, was  manifested. Mr. Sam Greer, one of the-members of the new party, thought that the Fire  Chief should get $100 a month and no fireman  receive more than $75, no school teacher more  than $125 a month, and no civic official whatever over $200 a month.  GREAT BRITAIN has secured the measure of  her task.     Her 'statesmen   know what they  must do-^-theV number of men they Fill require���������the amount of money they must' spend.  The task is big, but Britain's sons are responding to the call. . *     "  '   The Russian campaign, which seemed so disastrous to onr allies, is turning out to be an  empty and costly victory to Germany. ' ' They  have not succeeded in accomplishing a single  definite item in their plan.    They had hoped to  , get a port in the Gulf of .Riga, they thought  . Poland-would prove to be a hive of industry,  they tried to get the rich harvests on the plains  of southern Central Russia, they have been dis-  1 appointed in every case.   They have only gotten the husks, and at a fearful cost in men*and  equipment.  Germany's submarine warfare has also been a  failure. They have lost nearly all their wonderful fleet of submarines, and the British naval  authorities have observed a discreet silence  throughout it all. They went fishing for these  "pirates" but v tell no fish stories of'their catch.  Germany had expected to have disrupted the  industries of the United States and to have stopped Britain from getting war supplies from  there; the .answer is a billion dollar' loan to  Great Britain to finance future orders.  Germany's Balkan policy has met with a sim-  - ilar fate. She tried to bluff Roumania and  only succeeded in driving her into the lap of  the Allies. Bulgaria is still neutral in spite  of the well known pro-German attitude of her  ruler.  We, have  good  reason to  be tvell  satisfied /  with our present position.    On the western front  our lines are impregnable.    On the east the Russians have the Teutons guessing.     The Turk ia  ready to quit, and we still rule the seas.  PEAT IN THE , ,  MANUFACTURE OF PAPER  THE ARTICLE, -which follows, is an excerpt  from a translation, contributed to lia Pape-  terie Francaise, and which appeared in the international number of the Paper Maker for tbis ,  ^ear. As Canada is probably one of the paper-  making couhtrtea;'which will th'tinie he moafin-  terestej in the use of thhl raw material, containing as the Dominion does an area of peat  bogs, which exceeds 30,000,000 of acres or 10,-  000,000 more than in the United States and more  than any European country with the possible exception of Russia, tbe above mentioned article  is produced herewith:  The Utilising df Peat  The use of peat for paper manufacturing  purposes was suggested long ago, and paper-  industry periodicals have many times published patents relating to this subject.  Many different methods have been suggested  for utilizing the peat; as fuel, as gas producer,  as raw material for the manufacturing of alcohol, as litter, as packing material for fruit, etc.  Previous experiments in using it for paper  making purposes, however, do not seem to have  given very encouraging results froman econom--  ical standpoint, either with peat alone or mixed  with wood pulp. Tbe lack of success met with  may be explained by several reasons. Several  authors describe quite seriously digesting methods with soda or other chemicals under high  pressure, sometimes followed by a bleaching with  chloride of lime. The only result of such methods is the rapid vanishing of the capital engaged  without any hope of future profits.  Varieties of Peat  c  It must be remembered that the general  term "peat" includes a great variety of vegetable substance, which have been submitted to a  more or less advanced decomposition in the  ground. It is evident that peat can give promising results or be immediately rejected, depending upon if it is of recent or old formation, or  upon which organic substances it contains. In  this manner the peat from the very vast bogs  near Amiens (France), has been found impossible  to utilize in any industry. Its state of decomposition is too advanced, and it crumbles to  pieces when dry: Such peat may be used as a  fuel and give gas by distillation; perhaps it may  have other uses, but not for paper making.  Another kind of peat, however, occurring for  instance in the department of BassesVpyrenees,  has been experimented with and can certainly  take a place among the raw materials for paper  making;   ,  In most peat:bogs there exists at a certain  ���������depth below the surface, 2 feet���������7 feet sometimes, a layer only slightly decomposed peat, in  which the constituent elements of the plants are  found only a little changed. Below this layer  the peat is decomposed, darker, and cannot be  used for paper making purposes.  Experiments with Peat  In the experiments in question only the manufacture of cardboards was tried as the peat seemed to be less suitable for paper manufacture,  perhaps with exception for certain very dark-  colored tar papers. *  The peat was used as it was taken from the  bogs, without previous washing. It may be  remarked that it contained very little earth and  extraneous matter. The washing of peat gives  a very dirty, dark-colored wash-water, which  cannot be let out into rivers or lakes, as this*  would cause complaints and difficulties.  The author simply refined the raw peat a  little in order to cut off too long fibres, and to  .INDUSTRIES FOR  BRITISH COLUMBIA  x/Xxv-j  *' '- jt^  THAT WE NEED INDUSTRIES in British Col-,  umbia haa now become a truism. If, how-'  ever, our policy is to he that ol the local'  Manufacturers' Association, and we are going  to demand an advantage in the local market  of from 10 to % per cent, then our efforts  will be pretty much of a joke.

The defect in thia pulp is  said to lie in the fact tbat it is yellowish in  color, and therefore not suitable for the manufacture of pure white paper, but it is understood  tbat a new method has now been devised for improving the color. Only a short time ago 15 tons  of this specially bleached pulp were imported as  a sample shipment, which is now being tentatively  used by the paper mills.    It is said that if the  results are satisfactory, the supply of Canadian  pulp will be of great convenience to paper manufacturers generally.  Prices for Canadian pulp at present are quoted at 5 sen per pound for the first class, 4-8  for the second class, and 44 for the third class,  with the probability that they will presently see  an advance.  '������-X  cAWfi  beat up certain roots, somewhat coarse; he added digested straw pulp, about 50 per cent., and  obtained a cardboard of an agreeable brown  color, both strong and pliable. Its strength was  certainly superior to cardboard made only of  straw. He also obtained a satisfactory product  by mixing 50 per cent, of peat with 50 per cent,  of old paper.  The experiments were executed on a small  scale, and no advices as to results obtainable on a  manufacturing scale can be given. It, however,  seems as if the kind of peat used when only a  little decomposed could very well' be used for  cardboards without any digesting. The screening surface ,of course, must be large and continuously cleaned. The riffler also must be of  ample, dimensions.  It may be advisable to use the water passing  through the wire over again, in order to have  as little as possible to discharge into the river.  The wire ought to be long and the speed slow on  a ceourit of the high proportion of very short  fibres, and also because some of the fibres possess a remarkable degree of " greasiness." The  natural colour of the peat does not permit manufacturing of light-coloured boards, at least  only if a small percentage is used.  Outlook for Peat Industry  From an economical point of view the use  of peat under the stated conditions seems interesting on account of its cheapness. It is impossible to give a price for peat in Franee, as it  mainly depends opon local conditions. The mechanical extraction seems possible, but the  problem is far from being solved for peat only  a little decomposed and still rich in fibres, which  cannot very well b������ taken from the bogs by  means of excavating machinery.  Extraction by hand is laborious and expensive. On the other side, if the peat is utilized  on the spot, it is not necessary to dry it, but  for transport-' an air-drying is indispensable, as  the percentage of water often reaches 95 per  cent. j  The peat is a raw material, notwithstanding  all this, which the cardboard manufacturer in  certain regions can obtain cheaply and which  can be useful to him; mixed with straw pulp  or old paper it will give, if sufficiently fibrous,  cheap cardboards of good quality.

This is to be regretted,  for there are many ministers  known to me who would deeply  regret being associated with the  procedure which has commended  itself to the judgment of that  body. Indeed the public might  well make inquiry into the personal composition of the Union.  Some ministers do not belqng to  it at all. Some are not invited  to its meetings, and so far from  being representative-! cannot  find that the larger churches  have any considerable representation .' there. My predecessor,  Dr. Crummy, was associated with  the Union, but if the report is  meant to suggest that he was  among those who unanimously approved of the action, there is for-  getfulness of the stern protest  which he made.  After, all what justification is  there for a ministerial, guild  speaking to the public? Individual ministers represent congregations. Those, ministers in their  purely private capacity speak  merely as private citizens, and  have no representative value. But  a body alleged to be a union of  ministers arrogates to itself by  the very title a certain representative value which is not justified  the ^ moment they pass beyond  voicing the consensus of ministerial opinion upon matters peculiarly, within the' scope of the  function of the ministers aa such-  Union's Action  Impertinent  Those ministerial functions consist in the creation and develop  ment of Christian conscience and  Christian life in the community  Society as.organized for ethical  and religious education expresses itself through the various bodies which we call churches. But  society, when it seeks to apply  standards of life and conduct to  the particular conduct of specific  individuals has an entirely different expression through more ap*  propriate organs���������namely, the ju  diciary. Every minister of the  church is within his right in seeking to secure acceptance for those  great standards of life and con  duct which he believes to be  Christian. But when he proceeds  to determine facts and' estimate  personal character in the light of  those standards he is entering  upon a task' for which his training provides no specific fitness  The Ministerial Union has not  proved itself to possess in any  unique degree the judicial capacity or temper. In any case  their work is not that of the  judge of character, but thee work  of creating- Christian^ modes of  thought. /   '    '  Now of such an interest I can  find no trace in the pamphlet or  in the new report. Personally  those ministers of course have  an intense interest in such work,  and it expresses itself in their  appropriate activities; and it is  no criticism on their fitness to be  ministers to say that in a job  for which they are collectively  unfit they show no special^ aptitude. x  Lack of Leadership  The pamphlet depicts a social  condition which may well be substantially true. Apart from all  personal details, apart from the  unwise at'tempt to suggest verdicts on complex courses or conduct and specific enterprises, the  picture given may reflect the way  we have all been living. We see  wholesale speculation widely; diffused. We see a government  elected to represent a highly speculative community, adequately  reflecting the policy and temper  of the community as. a whole.  We see, as we might expect to  see, under a system devised, to  further the private interests of  the skilful and sagacious investor, great areas of. national pro  perty being made to yield large  increment of profit to those who  adapted themselves to the civil  I."  it- -  *%��������� - '  CaropMJ-Gordon Co., MM  Gate Valves, Bycif������wt������, Brass Goods, Water Meters,  |iea4 tfipe* fig Jiead, pipe and  Pipe yittijjgs.  ���������Bailway Tracfc Tools and Wfefte Waste  Concrete -Mixers an4 Wheelbarrows.

I  see in the pamphlet no serious  suggestion of anything other  than what the whole temper of the  people demanded���������the utilization  by experts of the national heritage for the enrichment of the  present generation. Now this was  a policy on which we may hold  different opinions. ^Certainly any  man of mo*al insight could see  that the general'trend of the last  ten years was to undermine the  higher forms of ethical and religious thought and conduct. Now  I ask, what was the attitude of  the Ministerial Union then?  What has been the attitude of  organized religion as a whole?  It must be admitted that with  rare exceptions the church, both  in its larger corporate bodies and  in the financing of its local enterprises, and in. the activities of its  respected members, and even of  its ministers in large numbers,  was not only acquiescent but actively participant in the great  delirious speculation. Indeed organized religion as a whole broke  down utterly when the steadying  power of moral and religious  leadership was needed. We ministers, as a body, made no definite  Christian contribution to arrest  us did see and did warn against  the whole trend, we can claim  no exemption���������as a body we  were one with the rest of the  community.  -Morally Mischievous  Ministerial unions as a whole  were silent when we might have  contributed, had we possessed the  moral insight tb tbe creation of a  better way of thinking, but we  did not. It is utterly unworthy  and unmanly now to adopt airs  of superiority and cast the blame  upon other professions which the  church condoned and adopted.  Let us be first of 411 honest and  insist on clear moral thinking, by  corporate confession that we who  should have created a Christian  way of thinking made no serious  effort to do so when the feverish  speculation was-at its height.  But does the Ministerial Union  propose, even now,, to vdo the  work? Do they, stand outside  the closed door: "O, let us in,  though late, that we may find  the light!" No such desire is  evident in the pamphlet at all;  but, instead thereof, we have the  cheap recrimination against this  one and that one, for doing more  or,less-successfully what the rest  of the people, except a few of us  faddists, wished to have done.  I see how easily this method of  indignation rather than of reli  gious inspiration has set brethren'  astray. For instance, J see a prominent firm of professional men  involved in certain transactions  held up to censure. But tbis  firm, instead of being mentioned  by its professional name���������which  would have brought to the front  men who are of, another party-  singles out one Conservative member of the firm for prominence.  Tbis is the inevitable outcome of  the lack of judicial training and  tetnper. Tbe pamphlet with  great persistency turns people  away from great moral_and religious principles, with which  alone, as "ministers, we are concerned, to concentrateXthought  and feeling on the other fellow's  wrong doing, or alleged wrong  doing. The pamphlet cannot by  any means visible to me assist  any work' of-religion or moral  awakening; for it inflicts a very  serious injury upon religious and  moral education by.offering to  the community instead of the  only remedy-���������a corporate repentance���������the cheap but soothing  opiate of denouncing some one  other than ourselves. First, the  ministers fail to measure up to  the right standard by accepting  responsibility for failure to give  inspiration at the right time; and  then they turn round and offer  a means by which other people  may shuffle their own responsibil-  Atyr,������ff ������nxt0 the Moulders of  A, a or C. Not this way can any  awakening of ethical thought and  community redemption be accomplished.  Politically Unwise  My first complaint is that the  action of the Union is impertinent. My second eomplaint is  that it is morally mischievous;  my third is that it is politically  destructive. For the one plea  made in the pamphlet, and reiterated in the new report, is that we  be saved by the action of Ottawa or of Westminster. Now,  here we can see the same lack of  moral interest. The only way a  people can be saved is by awakening in them, not in some one  else, the saving energy. Quebec  saved herself, under circumstances as difficult as ours by the  .'-.wakening of a great revulsion  of well informed moral feeling.  Later on Ontario eliminated the  strongly entrenched and venerable ministry which had become  the prey of parasitic growth*.  More recently, under the most  desperate conditions, Manitoba  has saved herself. If it be replied that the whole legislature  here is of one way of thinking,  I answer that this just proves the  thoroughness with which the community as a whole was in accord  with the policy, and therefore,  it is futile to select special individuals. It may well be that  when we ministers have done our  belated and overdue work of  creating a Christian community  life the proper1 authorities may  determine that this man or that  man has violated the law. But  we ministers have no right to de  nounce men as individuals for  carrying out the law of the land.  The proposed remedy is impossible. What weight of ^opinion  would be carried by the intervention of au alien authority?  Would the fact that the judge  came from Downing street ensure the acceptance by the  people of. the verdict? We tried  that with Lord Alyerstone; but  I remember that the judgment  did Hot automatically carry conviction to all our people. There  arc no short cuts out from the  woods of a speculative age, especially if we ministers failed at  the time to open up a highway  through the jungle.  I must apologize for the length  of this communication, but it is  time that the great body of the  ministers of the Lower Mainland  were cleared from complicity in  these recent enterprises far beyond the scope of ministerial  function. For my brethren pf the  ministry I have reverence in all  work which is truly theirs when  they voice the corporate striving  after righteousness, and when  they seek to organize that aspiration after righteousness to positive and fruitful ends. But when  we, or any group of us, use the  name and prestige of the ministerial profession for ends alien to  our work we inflict a wrong upon  the church as a whole, and we  forfeit that claim to respect which  is invincible while we work out  the work which, is given us all to  do.  EBNEST THOMAS.  Wesley Church,  September '18, 1915.  THB CRISIS IN 9. 0.  The following correspondence  on the above topic from the Min  isteriai Union^of the Lower Mainland speaks for itself. The cor-  respondence was received too late  for insertion in last week's issue.  Vancouver, 16th Sept., 1915.  In view of the misleading statements that have been circulated throughout the province  regarding tbe motives and actions  of the Ministerial Union .of the  Lower Mainland, in, the matter  of the publication of the pamphlet entitled "The Crisis in B-  C," I am instructed to forward  the _ .enclosed _ resolutions���������unanimously adopted at^the last meeting of the Union, which meeting  was one of the largest and most  representative yet held.  We hope that you will -be good  enough to publish these resolutions in your columns- .at an  early date.  I am,  Yours Sincerely,  J. B. ROBERTSON,  Secretary.  P.S.���������I also enclose Report of  the meeting at which these resolutions were passed. We trust you  will find space in your columns  for this report.  The Ministerial Union of ��������� the  Lower Mainland of B. C. held a  special meeting in the Y. M. C. A.  on Monday at 10.30 a.m. at which  the officers for the ensuing year  were elected and important steps  were taken with regard to the  work of the immediate future.  The meeting was largely. attended, and included representatives  from New Westminster, North  Vancouver, South Vancouver,  and intervening points, as well  as this city.  Rev. G. R. Welch, of Central  Baptist church, was elected president for the year, in succession  to Rev. N. A. Harkness. who has  removed to ��������� Wolf ville, N. S. Rev.  J. R. Robertson, of St. David's  church,' was appointed secretary,  in lieu of Rev. A. E. Cooke, who,  by his own request, was relieved  from office on account of his  health. Rev. A. J. Petrie, of New  Westminster, was chosenr treasurer.  , Rev. J������. E. Cooke presented a  report of his recent tour through  the province, as spokesman for  the Union regarding "The Crisis  in B.

The question of misrepresentation and distortion of the  motives and work of the Union  in thisTespect by a certain section of the press was discussed,  and a series of resolutions were  unanimously passed, and ordered  to be sent to the newspapers of  the province, and also the ministers of churches throughout British Columbia.  At the request of the Union  the committee in charge of the  publication of the pamphlet "The  Crisis in B. C." presented in detail the evidence completely refuting the arguments adyanced  in the recent speech of the Attorney-General, which' purported  to be, a reply to the pamphlet.  The fifth of the following resolutions was then adopted unanimously for publication with those  previously passed.  It was .also resolved to hold a  public meeting in Vancouver in  the near future at which a complete reply to the speech of the  Attorney-General Bowser would  be given to the public. The committee in charge of the publicity  work of the Union was instructed to make arrangements as to  time and .place of such meeting.  Resolutions  In view of the repeated statements that Rev. A. E. Cooke and  the others whose names are sign  ed to "The Crisis in B. C," acted  on their own responsibility, we  submit the following facts for the  consideration of your readers:  1. That the Ministerial Union*  of the Lower Mainland approved  of the policy of issuing a statement to the public on the exploitation of the natural resources of  British Columbia.  2. That in pursuance of that  policy a committee of investigation was appointed which represented us throughout. This Committee met a great many times,  sent two of its members to Victoria for some days to consult the  records on file there, and to verify all copies of. documents sub-  tnitted and statements made  about the situation throughout  the province. As a result- of these  investigations, they were convinced of the accuracy of the state-"  ments which were afterwards  made in the pamphlet.  3.- Their report was presented  and discussed in detail at several  of "the most largely- attended  meetings of the Ministerial Union ever held, and was unanimously and heartily endorsed by everyone who was present at the last  and most largely attended of all  the meetings.  4.

THE WESTERN CALL  ,-x-    ,- , X     .<.,-!���������-���������  ',*V.*,Jv'������.'it������.' -   ..xx<-<*   &- ������.. '^cJtariP'St^/^v*^  The following article will be  read with interest by our readers,  inasmuch' as it gives a vivid detail of the Balkan States, the entry of which into the war seems  imminent:  Serbia  Serbia is a mountainous inland country divided from Austria-Hungary by the rivers Danube, Drina and Save. One-tenth  of the country is forest covered. More than four-fifths of the  people are small farmers, the majority cultivating their own land.  They are too independent tcf  work in factories or even to enter domestic service. The women  weave most of the garments for  their families, besides sharing in  every kind of manual labor.  Serbia has an area of 18,782  square miles and a population in  1910 of 2,912,000.  Products  Relative to its population Serbia possesses a greater number  of sheep (3,800,000 in 1910) and  swine (864,000) than any other  country in Europe. The swine  are fattened on the beech-mast  and acorns of the forest. Corn  is the principal grain crop, and  forms the staple diet of the country people. The normal annual  yield exceeds 3,000,000 bushels,  wheat 1,600,000. Flax, hemp, tobacco and sugar beets are grown.  Vineyards and orchards are extensive. Cheese is made from the  milk of sheep and goats. Cattle  are bred chiefly for export or  draught purposes, and like the  native horses, although strong,  are small in size.  Commerce  Serbia has no seaboard, is far  from export harbors, and is at  the mercy of hostile tariffs. The  export of swine is the principal  branch of commerce. The chief  manufacturing industries v are  those for whieh the country, Supplies the raw material, as meat:  packing, flour-milling, brewing,  tanning and, weaving. There are  also iron foundries, potteries, and  sugar and tobacco factories.  Cotton and woollen fabrics,  salt, sugar, iron and machinery  are imported. Large quantities of  prunes, grain, meat, hides, eggs  and copper are exported, chiefly  to Austria-Hungary, Germany  and Turkey.  x   ��������� *  * ���������  Rumania  Area, 50,720 square miles; population, 1912, 7,248,000.  Rumania extends from the  shores of the Black Sea westward  to the Transylvanian mountains,  which divide it from Hungary.  The Danube divides it from Bulgaria to the south, and to the  north and east is the Russian Empire-   - '      j  The Rumanians are  proud of  their race and country, and look  forward to the day that will  unite them to their kinsmen in  Transylvania (Hungary) and in  Bessarabia (Russia). The agricultural classes are hardy, frugal  and inured to toil, but very superstitious. Their staple diet consist of vegetables and corn' meal  porridge. Beef, mutton and pork  are rarely eaten, but veal is commonly used.  Froduoti  In 1900, Rumania ranked third  after the United States and Russia among the grain'1 growing  countries in the world. Since then  its relative importance has been  lessened by the development of  wheat growing in Canada and  Argentina. Corn is the next most  important cereal. Beans, potatoes,  beets and tobacco are grown. Rumania is also a wine-producing  country, and on tbe uplands  fruit-growing is general. Cattle,  sheep and swine raising are the  more important branches of the  live-stock industry. Cheese is  made from ewe's milk.  The petroleum deposits are  among the most important in the  world. The American Standard  Oil is largely interested. The  output in 1909 was 1,300,000 metric tons. Many valuable minerals occur, and salt, lignite and  brown coal are largely worked.  Lumbering'is important, although  the forests have been -recklessly  exploited.  The manufactures, which employ native raw materials, are  few and unimportant.  enaBEOMBsnasBBKHsi  Oommeroe  Commerce depends largely on  the grain harvest and fluctuates  accordingly. The principal imports are metals, machinery and  textiles, silk, wool, hair and  hides. The imports come chiefly  from Germany, Austria-Hungary,  Great Britain and' France.  Grain and timber are by far the  most important exports. Lumber  is exported to Turkey and Bulgaria; casks, planks-and petroleum drums go chiefly to Austria  and Russia. The remaining ��������� exports consist of live, stock, frtlit  and vegetables. The exports go  chiefly to Belgium, Great Britain  and Italy. Swine and" pork are  largely exported to Russia and  to Austria-Hungary.  ��������� ���������   ���������  Bulgaria  To the south.of Rumania, and  divided from it by the Danube,  lies the Kingdom of Bulgaria,  with ita eastern front on, the  Black Sea. and the Serbian' border on the webt.  Population in 1910, 4,317.000.  The Balkan mountains run  east and west through the heart  of the counjtry.  At the outbreak of the'recent  war with Turkey, its area waa  37,240 square miles. In 1901 its  population was 3,744,283, at  which time it was estimated that  1,500,000 Bulgars lived outside  its limits. The Bulgars are .patient, enduring, industrious and  thrifty, but reserved ahd superstitious and almost entirely illiterate.  Products  Agriculture, the main source  of wealth, and the occupation of  75 per cent, of the people, is in  an extremely primitive condition.  Wheat, corn, rye, barley, oats,  millet and rice are grown; also  grapes, tobacco, silk and cotton.  The mineral wealth, with the  exception of coal, remains unexploited.  Manufactures are unimportant,  but a homespun of excellent  quality is made.  The principal exports are cereals' (80 per cent.), homespuns,  hides, cheese, eggs, attar of roses. The imports are textiles, metal  goods, implements, furniture leather, and petroleum.  ��������� ���������   ���������  Greece  Greeee has an area of1 about  25,000 square miles, and a popu  99  lation, in 1907, of 2,632,000.  These are approximate'figures,  and do not take into account any  territory that may have been ad-  'ded .since the recent war, with  Turkey. k .;  I The population is densest on  the Ionian Islands, where it exceeds 307 to the square mile. The  city of Athens in 1907 had a population of 167,500. There are no  other cities having 100.000 inhabitants.  The Greeks are in spirit the  most democratic of the European  peoples. They have a passion for  politics, and are intensely patriotic. Their ideal ia Hellenic supremacy in southern; Europe. In  a general way they may be described as a clever, ambitious  and versatile people,, capable of  great effort and sacrifice,. .but  deficient in some of the more  solid qualities that make for national greatness. ���������  ', The general aspect of the  country presents striking and interesting contrasts. Fertile tracts  covered with vineyards, olive  groves, wheat'fields or forest are,  interspersed with rugged heights  and rocky precipices. The broken nature of the coast line, unique in this respect,.affords frequent glimpses of the sea and  adds to the charm and variety.  In respect to the vegetation of  the country, it may he said that  up to 1,500 feet above sea level,  oranges, olives, dates, almonds,  figs and vines flourish, and cotton  and tobacco are grown. Above  that is the region of the oak and;  chestnut, and similar trees. Then  come pine������ and beech, etc. Above  5,500 feet the mountains are mag:  nificent with flowering 8lpine  plants.  Greece depends for her prosperity on the products of agriculture, and while more than half  the population is engaged in this  and kindred pursuits, instruction  in scientific agriculture is - very  much neglected, and the industry  is in a very primitive state. The  soil of the plains and valleys is  exceedingly rich, and wherever  there is a sufficiency of moisture,  produces wonderful crops. Nevertheless, cereals are the principal  import.  Greece does not possess any  manufacturing industries on a  large scale; the absence of a native coal supply ia an obstacle to  their development.

Two more cottages built and  occupied in twenty hours more.  This Is tbe result of a building  race recently held in- Binghamp-  ton, New York. It was a race  to -keep a saloon out of the most  exclusive residential district in  Bingbampton. It was successful  too; for although the saloon was  granted a license, the sentjiment  of the people was so aroused tbat  the license was soon transferred  to another and less exclusive spot  in the same town. ,  " This is the way it happened:  The State of New York is under the "Raines Law." The law  provides that, in order to obtain  a license,-the applicant must get  the consent 6f'wo?thirdsiof''.the  owners of dwellings located within three hundred feet of,their  place of business.  Under the provisions of this  law a saloon keeper saw a good  chance to secure a thriving business in Binghampton's exclusive  "West End." He purchased a  site for a cafe or hotel, and/also  purchased an adjoining house  and barn. This location was  chosen by the saloon keeper because it ia only a short distance  from the east line of the village of Lestershire, a no-license  town of about five thousand  people employed in several large  shoe factories, and it would be  sure to prove attractive to the  workingmen; the house and barn  were included because they were  the only structures' within three  hundred feet of his place of  business, and thus under the  Raines law there would be no  trouble about license.  Binghampton's ; West End  awoke to the situation with a  start. All day the proposed saloon   was   discussed.     Then   at  the site, conceived the idea of, ���������  building, witftia the -three^him-  dred-foot limit, a cottage or pan-' -  galow on short notice, in order  tbat he might vote against tbe  saloon. Arrangements were made  quietly and at six o'clock a force  of men were on hand. Lumber  and other necessary building material were  delivered, three immense arc lights were installed,  and the workmen set to on the  job and worked all night. In the   .  morning the bungalow was finished, , complete   with   paper au4  paint, electric  light  and  water  connections, and a family, with  all their household goods,   had  moved in. They got their   own  breakfast in the new bungalow  oftbreerbbms and" were soon a*  comfortably settled as if they had  been living there for months-    ���������  In the meantime the saloon  men, realizing what the erection  of- the cottage meant, procured  automobile headlights, extra men  and material,,and they, too, worked all night. Then tbey moved a  family into the old barn���������a move  which would again put them in  the lead, if, in the eyes af the law,  the inhabited barn could be called a dwelling.  Crary and his .supporters then  arranged for the erection of two  more bungalows, similar to the  first one. They commenced work  on the structures about 1 o'clock  the next'afternoon, and the little homes were_ completely finished and occupied at about ten  o'clock in the evening of the  same day. But before the bungalows were finished, the saloon  keeper had made his application  for a license, and under the law  the treasurer was compelled to  issue it. The papers were issued  a few weeks later and the saloon  commenced doing business. Crary  then promised to take the matter  into the courts on the ground  that the . barn should not be  counted as a dwelling; but before  the matter came to a head, the  saloon owner presented an application to haVe the license transferred to another location, and  the saloon keeper, evidently realizing he was beaten, retired from  the neighborhood. The drys had  come off triumphant -without recourse to a legal fight.  .r?VtMg������������i  One-third of the telegraph operators in Great Britain are women.  ��������� / .^ww^wmn?!  ~~~H  r^p---i--i-*-^������^!PPiil  rs  7i^^-.-~,-7^^3  THE WESTERN CALL  J������4|4iB4Ii'^'aJU(alIMS������4L2r4A������JUi������llU^  M&siaaaBBaHsisnuaasnib  jjyta������������ria4^^irrt>MiM������'j4^^a.:a!.Sj^~<j  ������  ���������  P>  #  Friday, September 24; 1915.

The season is fast approaching  when cool evenings "will demand  the starting of fires in our homes.  September and October have become known to firemen as the  months when chimneys and flues  cause the most trouble.  The following suggestions of a  practical nature, if faithfully followed, will do much to prevent  damage to property and loss of  life.  Stoves���������Place a metal stove-  board on the wood floor under the  stove, and extending at least  twelve inches in front of the ashpit door. Protect all walls and  partitions within two feet of any  stove with a metal shield, leaving an air-space between the  shield and the wall. Leave no  kindling or other wood in the  oven over night. Do not hang  clothes too near the \ stove or  stovepipes.  Pipes���������See that the lengths of  stovepipe are well fitted together, free from rust holes and  parted seams, wired firmly and  fitted perfectly into the chimney.  Stovepipes passing through partitions, walls, floors, attics and  roofs are dangerous at best.  Where these must pass through  partitions, walls or floor always  use a large, ventilated double  thimble. You should examine the  stovepipes in the attic. They  may come apart or rust. Fluff and  spider webs are likely to gather  on and around them, to be set on  fire when you least expect it.  Chimneys���������Chimneys should be  built from the ground up,, and  never rest on wood supports. The  settling of the woodwork will  cause,cracks in the chimney. Nor  should the chimney walls be used  to support joists or other woodwork. Soft brick and poor mortar  are often responsible fqr defects  in the chimney. Use a good quality of brick and .".anient mortar.  Chimney walls should be at least  eight inches thick, the flue of ample she ahd line with fire clay or  terra cotta. Never stuff up the  flue holes yvith rags or paper, nor  cover them with anything but a  metal stock. Chimneys should be  cleaned frequently.  Fnrnaees���������Protect all woodwork above and around boilers,  if within three feet, with a metal  shield ,also all woodwork near  furnace pipes. It is best to rivet  the lengths of pipe together to  prevent disjointing. The pipe  should fit perfectly into the chimney. Examine* the pipe frequently  for rust holes or otber defects.  Keep them free from dust, fluff  and spider webs, which are easily ignited.  Defects���������Defective stoves, boilers, furnaces, pipes and chimneys  should be promptly repaired or  replaced.  Overheating���������Beware o������ overheating stoves,Xboilers, furnaces  and pipes.  Ashes���������These should never be  placed in wooden receptacles or  bins, on wood floor?. or against  wood partitions, walls, fences,  or any ^ other woodwork. Use  metal receptacles only, and dump  ashes away from all buildings.  Care���������These matters are technical, but very simple and merely  call for ordinary, care. You cannot afford to be careless,_when_the  lives df your loved ones, and the  property of yourself and neighbors are at stake. Let "Care and  Caution" be the watchword and  in this way assist in reducing  Canada's/ enormous fire loss.

VOTES FOB WOMEN  IN ALBERTA  That the Alberta government  intends to bring in a bill at the  next session of the legislature  providing for woman suffrage is  evident from a letter which has  been received by President  Speakman of the United Farmers  from Premier Sifton. The letter  pays: "Your letter in regard to  woman suffrage received. This  matter 1ms received the serious  consideration of the government,  and 1 have given instructions for  the preparation of a statute placing men and women in Alberta  on a basis of absolute equality  as far as proyineial matters are  concerned. This bill will be presented at next session of the legislature as a government measure."  Lengthy service   in a   submarine subjects a man to great risk  of contracting pneumonia or tuberculosis.  '���������*'������I���������*T'*T''T"^^,T 9W    <-������t**T'Y  BUms* ABMY  Since the war began over 1,-  800 Americans have joined the  British army. Actual young citizens of the United States, I mean,  a  few of whom have  told me  that  they enlisted  "just  for a  bit of excitement," but most of  whom   affirm, with   lower   jaws  stiffly set, that they are in khaki  for the sake of seeing to it personally that   Kaiser Bill   "gets  his."     The bulk of these men,  of course, are members of the two  Canadian contingents, but a lot  of them, too, have come across  to   England   and enlisted   here.  One of the latter is amongst the  most recent winners of the V. C.  Many of. them are graduates of  "West Point and Annapolis  (the  American naval   Academy)   and  thus  get their commissions    almost at once. Some of them, too,  have had experience in Cuba and  the Philippines   and   other   hot  countries where they really have  flies, and   these   young   officers  have been able to give us some  valuable hints in the  matter of  camp sanitation.  One  expert in  this respect is a former member  of the Richmond Light Blues, one  of   America's   crack   regiments.  He was rather badly wounded at  Neuve Chapelle,   but   has* gonei  back cheerily to the front again. |  1!

OUEPIT SJNCHT  The following story is told now  over a year after the stirring  Komagata Maru incident which  occurred in Vancouver about the  time war broke out.  Port Townsend, Sept. 20.���������The  return of Capt. Yamomoto, now  in command of the Japanese  steamship Kamakata, brings to  America the sequel to a news  story which has been long forgotten in the rush of events following war in Europe. Something  better than a. year ago the arrival of the Hindu ship at Vancouver, B. C, and the refusal of the  Canadian authorities to allow 350  Sikhs, who came as passengers,  to land, was an incident which  attracted more than national attention. The Sikhs were British  subjects, countrymen of men now  bearing arms for the Allies in  France, and Canada's action in  barring them provoked a political  problem Of more than casual importance.   X  In Vancouver harbor the Sikhs  rioted. What happened in that  harbor, however, seems a commonplace tale beside the ~Xvents  which followed when Capt Yamomoto took his ship, the Komagata Maru, out to sea again and  steered his passengers back to  India.  Now, the Sikh is a fighting man  and he is a, devil for pride. For  his friend he will perform the  most menial service; for-hire he-  will do nothing'but ��������� what he considers dignified labor.  These men considered themselves British citizens, and they took  affront at the refusal of Canada  to admit them. "When, after sev-  toward Calcutta with the Sikhs  quiet,'but far from pacified.  The wireless, chattering word  of (their coming,, received orders  for tbe ship from the Indian government When she entered the  Hugli the Komagata Maru docked at a small village twelve miles  down the river from Calcutta. A  special train was waiting for the  Sikhs. They were to be hurried  to their homes near JJahore.-  A large guard of police was at  hand to see that the order was  enforced. ,  The big ship docked and the  Sikhs were ordered to the deck.  They' came reulctantly,, under  guard. They disembarked slowly. A police interpreter informed  them they must enter the train.  The^* refused absolutely to stir  from the dock.  -Ifhe chief of the constabulary  _went_among them-to urge_obe-  dience. From somewhere in the  throng a shot was fired and he  dropped dead.  A fusilade of shots spatterejj  into the police ranks. The uniformed men returned the fire.  Soldiers were called out and a  pitched battle began.

Last night a large  gathering in,, Wesley Methodist  church heard Rev. Ernffst Thomas  and Mrs. H. A. Edgett discuss  the prohibition campaign!  Mr. Thomas brought home to  the audience the effect of partial  prohibition in , Russia. A serious  shortage in the, supply of binder  twine had been felt in the prairies during the present harvest  season and when investigations  were made it was discovered that  United States manufacturers who  had been selling the bulk of their  production on the Canadian prairies were now selling to- Russia  for cash. The result of only, a  year's abstinence in that country  had enabled the peasants to save  sufficient money to pay cash for  their requirements, while the Canadian farmer could not secure an  adequate supply because he had  to buy on credit and not pay  until the end of the harvest. Prohibition in Russia had brought  the peasant into serious competition with the Canadian farmer.  People   said  .that, prohibition  laws passed, by British Columbia  would   not' prohibit -the  drinking of liquor inasmuch as it could  still be purchased from sources  outside the province. The speaker  argued, that   even if  Dominion  legislation was not passed shortly forbidding the importation of  liquor into the   province .which  did not want it, provincial legislation would reduce the consumption by 90 per cent. The present  movement was, aiming to abolish  the      commercial      organization  stimulated  and propagated   the  demand for whiskey to nine times  the actual desire for it.     It had  been found that when open places  for selling liquor had been done  away with in, a community, the  consumption had been ten   per  cent, of what 'it was previously.  .   Dr. McGuire, provincial organizer of the Prohibition movement,  accompanied  by Principal  Mackay, addressed a meeting in Nanaimo last evening, and > Dr.- McGuire will tour the interior of the  province in the very near future  in this connection.

The board of the Vancouver  General Hospital has passed a motion to appropriate- the sum of  $3,500, provided proper arrangements could be made, for the  equipment of * the new operating  rooms. Prior to voting on the  motion the question of equipping  five rooms or three at the present  time was considered. Dr. Mcintosh favored.equipping three but  his motion in that respect was  lost by the casting, vote of the  chair, and the motion to equip  five rooms at an expenditure of  $3,500 was carried.  Several appointments were  made-by the board to fill the  vacancies on the staff by the enlisting of several members for  service at the front. The appointments are: Inside staff, surgical. Drs. G. E. Sheldon and V.  E. D. Castleman; medical, Dr. A.  R. Robertson; eye, ear, nose and  throat? Dr. R. Crosby; outdoor  staff, medical, Drs. J. A. Sutherland and J. McNichol; surgical, Drs. T. R. B.
