STEVENS, M.P., Editor-in-chief.  VANCOUVER, British Columbia   AUGUST 29, 1913.  =������  %.*>.'.  m  No. 16  Post Office at Mt. Pletsint  City Engineer Fellows and Steve Maddison have Made Good; Vancouver needs Men who help the City  The Miners' Strike at Nanaimo and its Inevitable Aftermath  i *  THE STRIKE SITUATION  The strike situation on the Island has become  so involved that it seems almost impossible to  secure an impartial view of the question.  The fact that a riot has occurred has had the  unfortunate result of loading all blame for every  act of violence upon the strikers, with the natural  sequence that public opinion openly condemns  the attitude taken by the men.  No Excuse for Violence.  We do not attempt to excuse any man or organization responsible for the violent and lawless  acts which have been perpetrated in the strike  zone, but we cannot help making a plea for "fair  play."  The public must not accept, without question  or investigation, every charge that is laid at the  door of the men involved in this strike. It should  be borne in mind that the means of getting at  the truth are extremely limited and little is said  of the provocation which preceded some of the  alleged lawless acts.  For instance, it is generally believed that the  stikers threw a bomb into the home of a strike  breaker and at the risk of his life the innocent  father of the home grabbed up the bomb to save  his helpless little ones ������_nd as he attempted to  throw it out of a window it exploded and caused  injuries which may result in death. This story  has made the blood fairly .boil in our veins, and  our anger against, the strikers knew no bounds.  If true no punishment could be too severe for  those who could be guilty of such a dastardly  crime.  The Other Side of tbe Case.  But there is another side to this story, the strik  ers allege, with every evidence of truthfulness,'  that the injured man was a strike-breaker, or as  (Continued on page 4)  %i- m  (Prof. E. Odium. M.A., B.������c.)  Maitre Labori, in Vancouver, said in effect that  he loved the Bar because he loved justice. And  further, he added that on this ground he loved  England. He loves England because Britain is  JUST. He expressed in few words what the nations of the earth have long known, viz., that  Britain is pre-eminently the justice-loving nation  of this world.   All honour to Old Britain.  The Panama Canal and the Panama Exhibition  No wonder that Britain has a strong objection  to aiding the States by taking part in the Panama  Exhibition. In a most unmanly, dishonest and  cold-blooded manner, the States breaks a solemn  treaty with Britain, and then asks Britain to turn  around and help the treaty-breaker to jubilate  over the broken treaty.  No part of the Empire should join in the Exhibition until the treaty is respected and put in  its proper place. The insolence of the treaty-  breakers is astounding. They do a most reprehensible international act and then cooly ask the  nations affronted by their crookedness to rejoice  therein, and pay a large amount of money to  make a material manifestation of their jubilation  of or over their own abasement. No nation but  the States, Russia and Turkey would show so  much brass in the midst of an insolence so great.  The Blessings of the Deep Belong to Joseph  Some thousands of years ago, down in Egypt,  the blessings of the deep were given officially to  Joseph and to his sons, especially to Ephraim.  These blessings are and have been in the hands  of Great Britain for a long period of time.

Pleasant on the corner of loth Ave. and Main  Streets; it is one of a series which will be constructed in different sections of  Greater Vancouver, in order to successfully cope with the rapidly increasing postal  demands of our city.  The above represents a building which will cost approximately $100,000.00 and  will be of first-class fire-proof construction. The material will be practically all  British Columbian products. This is the result of the persistent demands of the  member for Vancouver that in all public works in the Dominion the materials shall  be Canadian. ���������  Below the ground floor the material shall be Denman Island stone; from the  ground floor up to the eaves is white Haddington Island stone and pressed brick;  the cornices and pilasters will be stone, suitably carved*-} above the eaves, the roof,  etc., to be of asbestos slates, with copper finials and hip ornaments.  The inside of the building will be finished hr marble slabs, from Quebec (if  possible B. C. marble will be used), dados of marble, coliunns, capitals and moulded  cornices of suitable carved stone. The floors to be concrete with hardwood finish  and in places marble terrazo. The building will be heated throughout with hot  water and usual radiator system, with ventilation through the outer walls. The  windows will be plate glass made to slide behind the stone tracery.  The stairs will be steel frames and marble treads and risers; the landings and  enclosing walls to be of concrete with marble finish.  Every effort is being made to rush this building to completion and when finished  it will be a distinct acquisition to the Mt. Pleasant section of our city.  CITY IS BREAM CONTRACT  THE CITY ENGINEER AMD WATEE  SUPERINTENDENT.  A motion to cancel the five-year agreement made  by the City with Mr. Fellowes, the City Engineer,  was made at a recent council meeting. It is not  our intention to contend that Mr. Fellows ia a  perfect man personally, or that he is the best  engineer to be had. Such a claim could not be  made in behalf of any man. He is a very "human" person, is Mr. Fellows. He has fault; so  has every member of the council and every citizen  of Vancouver. The question is not, Has the City  Engineer made any mistakes? but rather, Does  he average up well! We can only judge thia by  results and comparisons. Mr. Fellows came here  from Westmount. Westmount has to-day the best  streets of any city in Canada. It has good sewerage and water supply and puts to shame the balance of the great City of Montreal.  When Mr. Fellows came to Vancouver we had  the poorest possible system of streets and chaos  reigned supreme in the engineering department.  To-day, after a little over two yean service, we  can boast a splendid system of paved streets which  is greatly admired by all visitors. Formerly our  streets were notoriously filthy and dusty. All  that is changed and to-day we can boast that we  have, without doubt, the cleanest city in Canada.  When one considers the rapidity of the growth  of Vancouver we must marvel at thei manner in  which our improvements have kept pace with our  development.  We have no reason to fold our arms.and rest  content with our condition���������there is still much to  do���������but this we say advisedly, that Vancouver  compares very favorably with the following cities:  Toronto, Ottawa, Winnipeg, Hamilton, Calgary,  Montreal, Quebec, London, Victoria or auy other  of our larger cities.  Montreal is (excepting Westmount) a dirty, ill-  kept place. Toronto is having endless trouble  with the engineering department. Ottawa has  about the most incompetent engineering department in Canada, and so we might go on. Fellows  is not perfect, but he has produced results in Vancouver which have not been equalled in any other  city in Canada-  Just a word regarding his dispute with Steve  Maddison.  In Our opinion this seems to be the sore point,  and it is the more regrettable because "Steve"  is a very valuable public servant. He has given  the city service which it will be impossible to  duplicate in any other man. That is saying a  great deal, but not too much. When Alderman  McBeath made his charges against Steve Maddison he seized upon a weak point in his make-up  and exploited it so as to make it appear that  there was nothing else in "Steve."  Like Fellows, Maddison has his faults, but these  are outbalanced by his numerous good qualities.  What do the public care if the superintendent of  waterworks kept a driver for the W. W. auto or  not? Such a charge is childish in extreme. One  would think that this was for a pleasure auto  and that "Steve" travelled in state. Such is not  the case. Both the auto and the driver are kept  very busy at most useful employment.  Vancouver has the finest water supply and system on this continent, and much of this is due to  the faithful work of its Superintendent. Has he  made any mistakes f Certainly he has. Who is  there in active life who has not! But let us judge  him by the results of his long years of service  and not pick out a few insignificant faults.  Unfortunately. Fellows and Maddison do not  agree and therein lies the whole trouble. Who is  to blame ! We cannot tell. Nor do we think that  fifty commissions will succeed in finding out. This  much is clear to any impartial student of civic  affairs that both these men have rendered the City  valuable service. Both are capable of giving us  more and better service. If they cannot work  team work then why not separate the waterworks department and put it under a separate  department?.  The City Council will make a grave mistake if  they drive out of the public service these two  men. Small and petty differences should not take  precedence over the general public good, and we  appeal strongly to our Council to go slow in this  very important matter.  A local organization of the United  Typothetae of America was effected in the  Board oj Trade rooms, on Wednesday  night of this week. Most of the reputable  printing firms of the city united.  yy(\  ���������v 2  THE WESTERN CALL.

It is  our preesnt intention to endeavor to  show how this problem may be partly  met or solved by the "keeping of poultry on the city lot, back yard or garden."  Much pleasure ana profit are oftentimes afforded householders by the  keeping of a few fowls, whereby they  can secure fresh, whtolesome eggs,  and now and again the best meat obtainable., by killing off their surplus  stock.  In any city there are very few  yards so small or situated so that a  few fowls could not be profitably kept.  When considering such a question, tbe  chief points to be remembered are,  sunlight, reasonable space, shade, and  good drainage. There are, certainly,  other points almost as Important, but  the above are those, that should be  mainly considered at the outset.  Quite a few would-be poultry keepers are deterred oftentimes by the  fear that the space at their disposal  is not large enough. True, a backyard or garden only a few feet square  is not of sufficient area to permit of  the profitable rearing of stock, but  providing the utmost care is taken as  to cleanliness and. attention, there is  no reason why a few hens should not  be successfully kept.  Location of House and Yard.  When building, always endeavor to  locate the house as far from the dwelling of owner as possible. (We refer  now, to where It is proposed to keep  fowls in the ordinary back yard of,  say, 50 or 60 feet wide, by perhaps 30  to 50 feet deep). There are good reasons for this. Chief among these are  those of a sanitary nature, and that  the dwelling house may not obstruct  sunlight entering the pen or house of  fowls. ' y  Always enclose the yard with wire  netting, and this to be not less than  six feet high. Where wire is not used  and the fowls allowed to run through  your own and neighbors' yards, gardens or front 1 awns, unpleasant consequences Invariably arise.  If the lot is surrounded by a board  fence, a wire netting two or three -JJefc  wide may be strung along the top of  the fence, securing the same, to scalt*  ling or poles nailed to fence.  If the owner desires to use part of  the yard for a vegetable garden as  well, a dividing fence of netting should  be put up, and by baving the whole lot  wlrad the fowls may be allowed ec*  cess to the garden, after the vegetables have been removed. This will  afford the owner an opportunity to  clean up and spade over the poultry  run in the meantime.  Type of Building.  For the CoaBt district and adjacent  islands, an open-front house may be  used. In the Interior, a front composed of either coarse cotton, movable  glass or a combination of both, Is preferable.  The type of house proper In any locality may be the same, and may be  built according to owner's ideas.  These are the types generally used:  Woods' house, a semi-monitor, or in  other words, the roof on the south  side starts from a point usually two  foet lower from the ridge than the  north side. This allows windows to  be placed perpendicularly in t he portion above; Tolman house, with an  uneven roof, having generally two-  thirds of its area sloping to the south,  and the rest to the north. The south*  ern roof also comes down a foot or  two lower than the north side; tbe  common shed roof, with slant to north;  tbe combination roof, which is practically a Tolman house reversed, so that  the south roof ls smaller in size than  the north; the gable, etc. Of the  types enumerated, the shed roof is  generally cheapest to build. Where  drilvng rains are experienced, it is  advisable to place a hood in front of  the opening. If possible, tbe door  should be either the east, south, or  west vide, and, where not much light  is obtainable, a window may be pat  ln either the east or west side.  A board floor is generally used, and  it Is advisable to build the house up  off the ground a few inches, to avoid  dampness and harboring of rats. In  severe climates, the houses may be  banked up with stable manure or earth  during the winter.  A foot board should be placed in the  doorway, to prevent the litter from  jamming the door, and this will also  save considerable, snow-shovelling in  winter.  Where the house is located near a  fence or building to the north of it,  thereby offering protection from wintry winds and storms, It need not be  built so deep as when erected ln a  more exposed position. In any case,  it should not be less than 8 feet deep  in coast and island sections, and not  less than ten feet In colder regions.  Where the. fowls are confined- to the  house during the winter, they should  be given at least six square feet of  floor-space each. In milder sections,  four may be found satisfactory.  During the hot summer months,  shade, should be supplied in the yards,  either by natural growth, such aB corn,  sunflowers, artichokes, etc., or by cotton screen or board sheltes.  Equipment  Very few fittings will be needed*  The fewer the. better. See that all  are portable. Roosts, of 2x3, or barked poles, may be placed running east  and west, and from nine inches to a  foot space allowed for each bird, according to breed.   A droppings-board,  2 feet wide for a single roost, or 3 to  3 Mt feet for two roosts, should be  placed under roost. This should be  cleaned every few days, or not lese  than twice weekly, and the board disinfected with lime or liquid disinfectant. The house interior should be  limewashed once yearly, all fittings  being removed at same time. The  roosts may be painted with creosote  or tar, to prevent the breeding of red  mites. In severe climates, a dust bath  box should be provided. It should be  so placed that plenty of sunlight can  play upon it. It should be about half  filled with earth, with which has been  mixed some powdered sulphur. It  may be necessary to raise the box on  legs to prevent litter getting in. Nest  boxes should not be less than 14 inches square, inside measurement, and  about one nest to fi-pm three to five  birds allowed. The nesting materials  should be frequently changed, and  burned when removed. A water pan,  preferably enamelled, should be placed  on a board at least a foot above the  litter, the board being broad enough  to allow the bird standing room when  drinking, a grit and shell receptacle,  and, if desired, a dry-mash box, or  trough or board for wet mash. A  board for wet mash is preferable. It  Is much easier to clean tnan a trougr  The simplest and best form of dry-  mash hopper ls just a plain box, any  size or depth, with the top removed.  A lath should be nailed all around the  top, flush with the outside edge. This  prevents birds from scratching out  the mash.  Breed* to Select.  Choose one of the popular breeds,  and above all, get healthy, vigorous  stock, and buy only those of a good  laying strain. If one. finds it difficult  to make a choice, it is advisable to  vlplt a local Fair or Poultry Show, and  then select.  If one wisheB to buy mature stock,  the best time to buy is between the  months of July, August and September. If pullets, then the months of  September, October and November  will be found most suitable. Where  the owner does not intend to rear  chicks, but will secure layers by purchase, no male bird is necessary. On  the contrary, they are a dertiment and  expense. Where a male Is needed for  breeding purposes, it should not be  kept after the close of the breeding  season, unless a show specimen. All  males should be killed or marketed  soon after the middle of June. The  Department's Bulletin, "Natural and  Artificial Incubation," supplied tree on  application, fully describes methods to  be adopted when owners wish to rear  their own stock.  Above all, purchase from reliable  breeders. The writer cannot urge too  strongly on this point. It is courting  almost certain failure, and consequent  disappointment, to purchase stock  from dealers and hucksters. Very few  of the latter-mentioned people can  supply you stock that will give satisfactory results. Numerous Instances  have been brought to the writer's notice, where fowls of uncertain age, and  suffering from almost every known  poultry disease, have been palmed off  on unsuspecting people wbo have  bought generally because the birds  are secured at a price at which reliable breeders cannot affod to sell.  By writing the Secretary, care of De  partment of Agriculture, Victoria,  a  list of members of the Provincial Association will be forwarded free, giving a full list of breeds kept  Feeds and Feeding.  Wheat should form .the staple food,  and, with all other hard grain, should  be fed in deep litter to promote exercise and health. During the winter  months, cracked corn may be fed to  advantage, feeding it in equal proportion to the wheat. The amount of feed  is best judged by the owner. Care  should be taken to see that very few  grains are left at a reasonable time  from feeding. The times of feeding  may be set to suit owner. Where a  dry-mash is fed. It is not necessary  ^o feed more than twice daily, morning and afternoon. It is important  (Continued on Page 7)  - IHE  Where it pays to deal.  SCHOOL  SUPPLIES  1130 Commercial Drive  J. W.

"It is my Intention to advise the  council to shortly take up tbe matter  of municipality owned plants both tor  gas and electricity," said Reeve Kerr  ln conversation with a representative  of "The Western Call" on Tuesday  morning. "Such an electric plant  would be of great use to our industrial enterprises." The Reeve was not  present at the meeting of the Board  of Trade on the previous evening,  where dissatisfaction was expressed  over the alleged delay in the presentation of the gas expert's report on municipal ownership of a gas plant. The  report was said to have been received  by the council and filed.  Mr. R. C. Hodgson, the chairman,  said it was a shame that the streets  were about to be paved without the  simultaneous laying of gas mains. The  council ought to deal with firms if  there was to be delay in starting a  municipal enterprise.  It was decided that a loss of $10,000  a mile would be entailed in tearing up  the paved streets to lay the mains:  The secretary was finally instructed  to send to the Reeve for a copy of the  expert's report.  According to Mr. Elliott, the Reeve  represented to a delegation from the  Board of Trade that t he Municipal  council would not buy industrial sites  with Its bonds. The Reeve, however,  assured Mr. Elliott that the municipality might later be willing to pay cash  for such sites.  A reduction has been made ln the  water rate, so that the rate will be  almost on a par with that of the city.  This will take effect at the beginning  of the year.

The Strike Situation  (Continued from Page I)  they call him, " a scab,'' that he had several' sons  who were also strike-breakers; but one son refused -to go to work and stood by the strikers,  for which he was sdundly beaten by the father.  The strikers hearing this determined to remonstrate with the father (no doubt in a very forcible  manner), who, seeing them coming towards his  house, seized a stick of dynamite and attaching a  short fuse, lighted it, and attempted to throw it  out of the window, it struck the sash and fell  back into the rbom, whereupon he again caught  it up to throw at the strikers, when it exploded  in his grasp and blew his arm off, causing almost  fatal injury.  r If this latter story is true,and our information  is reliable, the injured man is the criminal and  deserves all he got and more.  The Cause of the Biot.  The men also allege that the first act of violence  was committed by four Italian strike-breakers,  who attacked a striker and stabbed him viciously.  They also charge that the authorities refused to  arrest three of these men, allowing them,tb go  free.  Many other cases of injustice and aggravated  provocation are alleged by the men, who contend  that they are not responsible for the riot at all.  At present the public have no means of judging  as to the merits of the case.  Those who take a position antagonistic to the  men speak in strongest possible terms in bitter  condemnation of their whole course, but we fear  that it js not safe to rely upon their testimony,  which must be highly colored, both from prejudice  and from excitement.  ���������,   The Militia.  The men and their sympathizers condemn in  unmeasured language the militia. In this they  are wrong. Whatever injustice may, in their  opinion, have preceded the riot, we must recognize the duty of the authorities to maintain order  and protect property. We cannot, as citizens, permit mob rule. The rioting was unlawful, whatever its cause. Nothing can ever be gained by  such methods. The net result to date has been  to create a public opinion which goes to the extreme in its condemnation of the strikers, and  this condemnation, though partly unjustified, is  confirmed and accentuated by the inflammatory  attacks,, such as were made in a public meeting  recently.  The Incompetence of Police.  We have learned one thing from this disturb  ance, that the Provincial Police system is utterly  useless as a preventive. As far as it goes the  force may Ve all right, but does it go far enough?  In a country like British Columbia we require a  corp of trained men, who could, if occasion demanded, be concentrated in one place. Fifty  trained mounted police could have handled the  whole situation and thus have avoided the bitterness always evoked upon "calling out the militia."  Nothing angers a disturbed mob more than militia,  whereas a good regular police force can often  handle a large crowd successfully.  Our Provincial Police individually may be of  the best, but collectively they are useless. They  are not trained to act in unison, nor have they  any common discipline. With a corp of trained  mounted police such a situation could be handled  and the militia would be spared the stigma which  is wrongfully hurled at them, charging them with  being enemies of the workingmen. The militia  should be looked upon as for the common defense  of the country from foreign invasion, and not to  put down local disturbances, whatever the cause.  That should be police work solely.  Summary.  The strike became a strike because we have no  adequate labor disputes law.  The problem has become so involved, as a result  of charges and counter charges, that a satisfactory  understanding now seems hopeless.  The men have been guilty of lawless acts, for  which we do not offer any defence, but not all  the violence can be attributed to them.  The outcome demonstrates the uselessness and  folly pf the "lock-out" and "strike" and forces  upon public attention the need of adequate laws  at once.  Give the arrested men a fair and impartial trial.  We want no persecution, only prosecution.  Company offenders should be punished exactly  as are the strikers. There must be no partiality  shown. If there is, time, will reveal it and it will  remain a blot on British; justice.  Those guilty bf violence must be punished, none  may gainsay that., But never were judges placed  in a more awkward position. Justice might be  more evenly dispensed by outside judges, for  after all we are,all human and likely to be prejudiced.  We must have British justice.

Had I been a bale of tobacco I could not have been treated  with less ceremony, the white man unclasping my belt while the Indian,  wltb a grunt flung me over on my  face, and began binding hands and  feet. I kicked him once, sending him  tumbling backward, but he only came  back silently, with more cruel twist  of the rope, while the boy laughed,  bending over his horse's neck.  "Hoist him up on the black, lads,"  he said shortly, reining back out of  the way. "Delavan's horse, Isn't It?  Tes, tie his feet underneath, and one  of you keep a hand on the reins.

He  turned back toward me. "Who are  yon, anyway?"  Surprised at the unexpected question, my first thought was to conceal  my identity.

This the black flung  Labor Day Parade to  Open the Exhibition  Plans are rapidly being completed -  for the monster parade of the Vancou*  ver Exhibition, to be held Labor Day,  Sept. 1, which will officially open the  exhibition. The parade will start at  the north end of the Granville street  bridge at 10 o'clock sharp, thence  along Hastings street to Main, down  Main street to Powell and follow Powell to the grounds. At the grounds  the parade will march around the  track in front of the grandstand, and  disperse after completing the circuit  of the grounds. Mr. F. T. de Wolfe,  who Is managing the parade on behalf  of the exhibition, says that from tho  way applications are coming in the  parade will be fully five mllea ln  length, and will be probably the largest ever held In Vancouver.

The two guards  left the sputtering candle, perhaps a  third burned, behind, and I heard them  stumbling back through the darkness  4o the foot of the stairs. I glanced  about curiously, shaking tho loosened  rope from my wrists, my mind instantly reverting to the chance of escape.

Not one of these  question* could I answer; not, one  could I even guess at'wlth any degree  of satisfaction.  We were coming out ot the low,  swamp landa into a more thickly settled, and cultivated region. Rail and  stone fences could be aeen on eitber  side the road, and we passed swiftly  t*r a number of farmhouses, some slm*  ���������ie log structures, although one or two  were more pretentious.  It may have been two miles further  along, when the lieutenant and his Indian companion, wheeled suddenly to  tbe right and, without slaokening  speed, rode through an open gate, and  up a graveled roadway, obtritbNf  through a grove of trees to tbe front  door of a great square mansion. It  waa dark and silent a wide porch la  front supported by huge pillars, a  broad flight of steps leading from the  greatest care, polishing cups and  glasses, and finally placing one of the  chairs ln position. Stepping hack, napkin still upon arm, he bowed silently. I  took the eeat Indicated, and glanced  np Into his almost expressionless face.  "Peter, you old fraud," I said swift,  ly, "have you eaten?"  "Not as yet elr," hia voloe showing  just the proper tone of deference, his  eyea staring straight ahead.  "Then take that chair and alt down.**  "Oh, no, sir; indeed, air, I am not at  all hungry, air."  I squared myself, fingering the knife  at my plate.  "Peter," I said, sternly, Tm a beO  ter man than you are, and you'll either  alt down there and eat with me, or 111  Hek you within an Inch of your life.  There la food enough here for three  men. and I want company."

"He might be, sir."  "A Swede, an Irishman, and an Indian," I said musingly. "That makes  a nice combination for the Queen's  Rangers. Come now, Peter, give me  the straight of all this."  He stopped with his fork in a bit of  meat, favoring me with another stare.  "I think I rail to comprehend, sir."  "No, yon.don't, yon rascal," a bit of  anger ln my voice.

Continned uext week  How to Reduce  High Cost of Living  ��������� (Continued from Page 2)  however, that the feeding periods  should be punctual and regular. Especially is this so during the winter  months, when the birds naturally seek  the roosts earlier In the afternoons.  Where It la not intended to raise  chicks, a wet mash, consisting of table  scraps, dried off with ground cereals,  may be profitably fed. Care should  be exercised In feeding table-scraps,  however. Salted meats of all kinds,  pickles, mustard or pepper are feeds  apnrata or mangolds.   It la absolutely  from disease.   It does not pay to doctor sick fowls, excepting on very rare  occasions.   Thia only when fowle are  very valuable and needed for exhibition, or -.hen they are Buffering from  slight colds or accidents.  ���������All the contagious diseases, such aa  roup, colds, tuberculosis, "blackhead,"  enteritis, cholera, chicken-pox, canker,  gleet, etc., may be successfully warded off by preventing draughts, infection from other diseased fowls, supplying   sunlight,   keeping  droppings-  board clean, replenishing litter when  needed, and removing same when soiled, regular sweeping of yard, spading  same after sprinkling lime all over,  and supplying permanganate of potash  ln drinking-water at all timet.  In conclusion the Aaaoclatlon feel  assured that lf householders ln all of  ground  oata,  wheat, barley or rice  Where sufficient table scraps are not  forthcoming,  fine-ground beef scraps  should be added, tbe latter to consist  of not more than 15 per cent, of the  ration.   Thia mash can also be fed as  a wet one lf desired.  Unless considerable yard room ls  available, and also taking the losses  by cats, rats, etc., into consideration,  lt is much cheaper to purchase pullets  or mature stock annually than to rear  them. i      '       '���������'  Pullets at six or more months of  age, may be considered purchased at  a reasonable price if secured for not  more than $2.50 or $3.00 apiece.

E. POLSON,  Enderby, B. C.  A High Compliment  From a Great Han  (Continued from page 1)  is measured by the unthinkable sum of 40,000,000  tons/ Of this grand total the British Empire  owns about 20,000,000 tons. Thus the most just  of all nations prospers in her justice. The one  big nation that is a naval myth today is the very  nation known as the United States. Their commercial fleet is next to zero, and deservedly so,  because at no time did a high sense of justice and  equity co-relate their actions to the world's commercial undertakings on the oceans and seas of  this earth.  Justice pays in the end, and injustice brings  disgrace as well as a clearly marked failure. This  is an inexorable law in the realm of business.  One reason why there are so many scandals  in Vancouver and in other cities of North America  is the fact that the men who represent the United  States factories, in one way or another, are ever  on hand with graft to aid in international and  civic competition. Big and little engines, hardware and all sorts of Yankee goods make headway through a ready graft to an extent rather  alarming, and resulting in Canada showing as a  great importer of goods from the States far beyond reason.  A Prominent Roman Catholic Committee-  Political  The Rev. Dr. O 'Boyle, Q. M. I, has come out  clearly in well thought language to urge upon the  Roman Catholics to organise, to.head off the Protest ans known as Orangemen.  The "Western Catholic," under the caption,  "The Call to Arms," applauds Rev. Dr. O'Boyle  for his timely and outspoken words.  Then we find, in the "Daily Province," a list  of very prominent and able Roman Catholics who  are chosen as a representative civic and political  committee to do the kind of work indicated by  their leaders in holy orders.  Personally I compliment the Romans because  of the able men they have chosen. Who can doubt  the ability of such men as L. G. McPhillips, K. C,  J. D. Byrne, J. S. Foran, D. H. Rice and P. Donnelly? These are a few of those chosen to be the  banner-bearers of this new civic committee. Here  ���������are the names as given in the "Daily Province":  L. G. McPhillips, K. C, J. D. Byrne, J. A, Tepoor-  ten, R. Evans, J. S. Foran, D. H. Rice, J. D.  Kearns, J. . Needham, W. Hickey, P. Donnelly  and J. Williams. This body of committeemen is  one of the best that could be assembled out of  the Roman Catholic Church or from any other  church or body. Hence I compliment the choosers  of this strong civic and political team.  At their head, I presume, is L.G. McPhillips,  K. C. He is so related to the politics of the country, so placed at the head and heart of the Province, as to be able to have all official hews in hand  for immediate or future use. In fact, the Hon.  Mr. McPhillips is like the presiding ego in the  convolutions of the brain as to touch and act upon  every nerve leading thereto.  " What can be done at Victoria that he cannot  have his hand upon in a moment ? Tes, the choice  is a good one, and the men are wide awake and  ready to answer to the "Call to Arms," so nicely  spoken of in the Roman Catholic paper, the  "Western Catholic."  I do not blame these men in selecting the Hon.  Jj. G. McPhillips, K. C," and the other able men.  They are acting up to the guidance of those who  are their spiritual masters. They are loyal tb  their leaders and to the commands of their religious mother, "Mother-church."  They are going to resent insults, correct abuses,  put their own people into*aldermanic, mayoral,  parliamentary and other positions, as tbey are  able and 4oem wise. If they cannot get Roman  Catholics into position they will select weak-kneed  Protestants to do their bidding. And who can  blame them for so picking up the most pliable  tools they can secure? They are an able body of  men and chosen because of their ability.  And I am sure that if I were within the bounds  of -the Roman Church I would be glad to work  with this very body of clear-cut, devoted, zealous  and representative men.  But let us have a little reflection at this point.  Why should tbere be a "call to arms," as the  "Western Catholic" puts it? Why any ground  for war? Why have a strong body known as the  Knights of Columbus in good training for actual  strife, if necessary? Why have rifles in convents  which have been in hiding until fires have revealed their presence? Ever why? Take the  -above named gentlemen, and I am well acquainted  with a number of themt and have done business  with several, and found them first-class fellows.  Why are they organising to defeat another body  of men, chiefly Protestants, and more especially  Orangemen?  And in turn, why do Orangemen try to prevent  too many Roman Catholics getting into positions  of trust?   Why, again?  Is it not clear to all readers and thinkers that  in Canada, as in almost all other countries, there  are two nations? These two nations have two  distinct and antagonistic heads. In Canada, and  all parts of the British Empire, these two heads  are King George and the Pope of Rome.  Orangemen have a deep conviction, the result  of long years of study of history and biography,  that those who are devotedly attached to the Pope  and to "Mother-Church" are not permanently  loyal to King George. When Knights of Columbus, for instance, refuse to carry the Union Jack  on parade, Orangemen have the notion that this  is the direct and inevitable result of deep-seated  disloyalty. In fact, these men, so loyal to the  Pope, are amongst the men who seem ever ready  to pass over the manifestation of respect for the  King.  On the other hand, Roman Catholics who acknowledge fealty to the Pope alone are much  angered when they see Protestants scorn the  claimed power of their Pope. We as Protestants  have no respect for the papal claims of spiritual,  or civil control of men and nations. Spiritually  we recognize our God alone, and nationally King  George is our Honor.  Here then is the cause of all cleavage and the  foundation for the two nations within one realm.  We honour the King, and have np use for the  Pope beyond that we have for any of the other  religious teachers. Our fellow-citizens, represented in the above named committee have the  deepst respect for the Pope, and give to him their  undoubted allegiance/ spiritual allegiance, of  course.  But when the spirit bows to a potentate there  is little else to bow to any other person, be he  King, Kaiser or President. <  Can we become political friends and stand on  the same common platform? We cannot. Let us  be plain men. We cannot. If we say we can, the  truth is not in us. We are travelling under different potentates. One is our fellow-citizen, the  King of the British Empire, and the other is a  foreigner, an Italian priest. I have no word  against the Pope as a man. I believe he is a  good, strong humane man per se; but he stands  out as the God-appointed highest and only real  ruler of mankind. I deny his claim on every  ground, and in this I am one with all Protestants.  Hence all these of like mind must stand where 1  stand, and where all true Orangemen stand. We  cannot co-work trustfully with men who give their  first allegiance and love to the foreigner at Rome  instead of to our own noble King George.  As men to men we can meet on common terms  of friendship, but in the political and civic realm  we are and must be in opposition. The Romans  have a first class showing in the Canadian House  of Commons. They dominate the Liberals, holding absolute control of that party by a majority of  seven. Surely they, have good organizations in  Central and Eastern Canada already. I would  like to ask if, deep down out of sight, this majority  under the Lauriers regime and opposition has anything to do with the determination not to come  to the aid of Protestant Great Britain with three  Dreadnoughts? Who can answer? What is the  unspoken reply of the alive Protestants of Canada? They are thinking. And as a man thinks  so is he.  ' However, in the meantime, the Daily Province  and the "Western Catholic" tell us that the Roman Catholics of this city and province are banding to carry the fight into every realm of public  life. Very good! We are glad to have the announcement. It is logical, sane, necessary and inevitable, owing to the fact that we are marching  under two antagonistic potentates.  The war may at first be academic, logomachic,  polemic and political. Jn the end there is only  one result possible. This is that either one party  or the other must give up its allegiance to its potentate and acknowledge the other; or stern war  ensues. This is as inevitable as the on-rolling of  time. We are absolutely unable to stop the wheels  of the chariot of war. And the disaster is increased because such a war is always a civil war.  It was so in France.; It was so in Spain, in Portugal, in Italy, in Ireland, and may ere long occur  in Ireland again.  Why is there not a "call to arms" by the Methodists against the Anglicans or Presbyterians?  Simply because they have no ground for a quarrel. They have no separate kings or presidents to  render allegiance to.  Let our Roman Catholic fellow-citizens relate  themselves to the King on the one hand as do all  the other British citizens; and on the other hand  relate themselves to the Pope as the rest of the  British Empire relate themselves to their official  religious heads, and then there will be no ground  for "calling to arms" of any sort in order to wage  a contest as to which of two potentates will  get into permanent control of the government and  all pertaining thereto.  Let me quote good authority here.  "Hinc Papa triplici corona coronatur, tanquam  rex coeli et terrae et infernorum."���������From  "Prompta Bibliotheca."  Translation: "Hence the Pope is crowned with  a triple crown, at King of Heaven and of Earth,  and of the Infernal Region*."  I now ask: Where does King George come in ?  No wonder there was no one to respond to "The  toast to the. King," at the late banquet given in  honor of Father Stagni when in Vancouver.  Have I misrepresented in. saying that we are  marching under two antagonistic potentates?  Hence there is war, which might in the near future become one of terrific dimensions. A horrid  civil and religious war���������fratricidal. But both  Kings cannot be loyally served at the same moment by the same persons. '  ffriday, August 29,1913  1912.

Wants to See You  farm no res  Ottawa, August 15.���������In a bulletin  issued today the Census and Statistics  Office reports that according to the  returns made by crop-reporting correspondents at the end of last month,  the weather of July waa upon the whole  favorable to the growth of grain crops.  The conditions in the Northwest provinces were reported as generally excellent. Representing a standard' or  full crop by 100, the average condition  throughout Canada of fall wheat is expressed as 77.75, of spring wheat as  87.62, of oats as 87.45, of barley as  87.58, of rye as 85.00, of mixed grains  as 89.33 and of flaxseed as 83.85.  The percentages of the standard  condition of spring wheat, barley, and  rye represent the promise of yields  per acre for spring wheat of six, for  barley of five, for rye of two and for  flax seed of one per cent above the  average yields per acre of the last five  years. The condition of the oat crop  ponnlses a yield equal to the average.  All the field crops of Canada on July  31, excepting only fafl wheat (77.75),  hay and clover (74.57), and alfalfa (76.35). are reported as having a condition above 80, the  range being from 82 beans and corn  for husking to 89 for potatoes and  mixed grains.  In the three Northwest provinces  spring wheat is reported as 84.60 in  Manitoba, 89 in Saskatchewan, and 88  iu Alberta, the other grain crops being correspondingly high, barley, especially in Saskatchewan and Alberta  being 90 per cent or over.   Root crops  In the Northwest provinces are also  particularly good.  Tbe condition of buckwheat in the  Maritime provinces and In Quebec la  90 and over; but in Ontario It ls down  to 73.43. Flaxseed Is above 80 in the  Northwest provinces, and in Saskatchewan, where the great bulk of this  crop is grown, the percentage condition is 84.17. Sugar beet, grown for  1������eet root sugar In Ontario and Alberta, is 80.44 for the former and 92.31  for the latter province.  The preliminary estimate of the  yield per acre of fall wheat Is 22.38  bushels, which for the harvested area  In Ontario, Manitoba, Saskatchewan,  Alberta and British Columbia of 825,-  800 acres indicates a total yield of 18,-  482,000 bushels, aa compared with 16,-  396,000 bushels from 781,000 acres in  Upwards of $20,000,000 are invested  in Canada's Pishing Industry, which  gives employment to 100,000 men and  produces annually 135,000,000 worth of  fish. These ahd many other facts relating to the Fishing Industry ln Canada appears in this week's issue of  the Journal of Commerce, Montreal.  The article which is illustrated is from  the pen of Mr. R. H. C. Coats, editor  of the Labour Gazette. Mr. Coats  shows that the industry has developed  almost entirely ln the past half century. Fifty years ago the annual output of fish was valued at 8125,000. Salmon is our most valuable fish, the  value of the catch being over ten million dollars per year, while British  Columbia ranks first as a fish producing Province, with Nova Scotia  second. The article ls unusually In*  teresting> treating as it does of an im*  portant but little known Industry.  In the same Issue of the Journal of  Commerce are articles dealing with  the lack of progress of British Life  Insurance* Companies in Canada and  the failure of the Lloyd George Insurance Act.
