Ever wondered at its meaning, when it's sounded faint and small  Over mountain, lake and prairie, over city, park and street?  Yes, I think you've heard its calling, for it never dies away-  One time fuller, one time fainter, sometimes soft, then clanged  But the thing for you to notice is that always, strange to say,  Its effect upon your senses just depends alone on you.  "WESTERN  C.

Do not wait if you have heard it���������there is need for such as you;  You're a man! Oh, come and answer to the Calling from the West.  "7".  HIGH FINANCE  (Prof. E. Odium, M.A.rB.Sc.)  It is a fact that Home-Payne spoke wisely  some time ago when he made strong and pointed  reference to over-borrowing by n\any Canadian  municipalities. Canadian cities, towns, villages,  townships, and other municipalities have run mad  in borrowing. The time has come for a different  course to be accepted and pursued.  The Western spirit is to drive the forward  movemenVto financial death. This spirit says,  let us have cities finished in every respect and  be made as perfect as are these cities which are  100, 200, or 2,000 years old. Hence they run to  the money market, and then run again for more  money in an insane andr most unreasonable  manner. They forget that all this borrowed  money is a first mortgage on our cities and on  the inhabitants thereof. Let jis have a change.  We can Walk a while, and late*'on % the running  act. The Yankee who "struck oil" and became  rich, wished his daughter tb get education. But  the teacher said she had not the ability. His  answer was, "Then buy her one. 1 have struck  oil, and have the money."  So these men who are the Western city builders  say, when told that, this or that city is not as far  forward as Aberdeen, or Liverpool, or London-  then buy the difference. If it be a difference in  sewers, or pavements or parks, or buildings or  aught else, then buy the difference. We can borrow the amount. Let the other fellow pay the  piper.  But the rule is that the borrowers are the piper-  payers in the end. Horne-Payne did wisely to  say to Canadians in general, go slowly and borrow  less. Of course he also says, and knows his sayings to be true, viz., that the Canadian cities and  towns are able to pay every dollar they have  borrowed. And yet there is a limit, and I say  fearlessly that Ave, most of our cities, have gone  as far forward in per capita debt as is wise. Let  us halt, and take stock of the tremendous sinking-  fund and interest tax we have loaded upon ourselves and our posterity.  There is no fierce rush into further debt necessary. Then save the ever-increasing financial  burdens being piled upon our people.  In fact the time has come when, at the civic  polls, there should be a determined body of economizers found in the field for aldermanic  positions. We pride ourselves in being economical  in our private business���������let us have a similar  pride in the business of the public. For as surely  as we rob the public by any means, we rob ourselves. And in the results of the robbery the  poor are sure to suffer worse than the others. I  say this because so many of the everyday workers  seem ready to vote for anything that brings in  temporary money, even though the act mortgages  the best units of their earning powers. This is a  serious mistake.  ACADEMIC POLITICS.  The worst feature of the press of today is,  perhaps, the constant espousal of the academic  spirit and custom. The newspapers seem to adopt  too largely the idea, false as Satan is false, that  "All is fair in love and war." This is a huge lie,  as every thinking man must admit. And the war  of the politician is constant, so much so, that to  adopt and use the false ideal is to make it a daily  occurrence. This then becomes the habit of the  writer until he seems unable to write on any  matter honestly and seriously, so long as there is  a political phase conjoined to the question being'  commented upon.  The political press of the day is dishonest to an  alarming extent. It is a national and an individual curse, a disease, a polemic scab, to be cut  out as soon es possible. Of course in some cases  the disease is worse than in others.  Some editors are so debauched politically that  they are unfitted to tell the truth, and they know  this to be a fact. In addition the reading public  are disgusted with the course pursued by these  political liars and defamers of honest, public-  spirited men.  4-  There are four, Indian Reserves bordering on the Harbor of Vancouver���������Kitsilano, Capilano, Seymour and Mission Reserves. The question which confronts the  citizens of this district, and which must have an answer, is what shall be done with  these Reserves'? It is evident to all who give the subject thought that they cannot  be left as at present; they are not suitable locations for the Indians, being too close  ' to the city, therefore we ask, what shall be done with themf  Some have suggested that we sell them to private interests; others would turn  them over to railways, but in our opinion it is imperative that these four Reserves  be retained for public purposes, to be administered by the Harbor Board for the  Dominion Government. We have one of the finest natural harbors in the world,  out practically all the waterfront is owned by private interests; it is therefore  necessary to secure all the property^ possible ior public use. These four Reserves  present themselves especially to this purpose.  The Public Works Department of Ottawadecided last year to construct a large  public dock on the Mission Reserve in North Vancouver and would by now have had  the work actually under way had the Provincial Government not taken the action  which it did to secure the Kitsilano Reserve; which action has had the result of  '' retarding the work of harbor development in Vancouver. We do not desire to allege  that the Provincial Government intended to interfere with harbor work but, unfortunately, that has been the net result.  hast year definite action was taken at Ottawa to,secure,for harbor purposes  both Kitsilano and Mission Reserves. In regard to Kitsilano, the Indians were  dealt with and everything arranged satisfactorily, when the Province stepped in  and, at the cost of $300,000, bought up the Indians and induced them (to leave the  Reserve. It was their intention at first to "open up" this Reserve, but upon strong  protests being made from Ottawa, no action was taken and they, the Provincial  Government, are now simply "sitting tight."  The question arises as to tvhat rights the Province have, if anyf It is claimed  that they have "reversionary interest." That is, when the Reserve is required no  longer as such it reverts to the Province. Now examine this claim for a moment.  The Dominion Government is the trustee of the Indians and holds all lands in trust  for them. "Reserves" have been set aside for the bands or tribes of Indians, and as  long as there is a member of such tribe or band living, the trust must necessarily  continue; the Indians, except in some isolated cases, are increasing in numbers, consequently the possibility of any tribe becoming extinct is very remote, and the likelihood of the "reversionary" powers of the Province coming into force is equally  remote. It therefore follows in natural sequence that the value of the Provincial  rights in Indian Reserves is very slight. The Attorney-General, however presents  another claim, viz.: that if the Indians "abandon" a Reserve, the title reverts to the  Province. Let us examine this contention and judge of the result should it be  accepted. If this latter claim is correct all that would be necessary for the Province  to do would be to pay the Indians a sum of money, or otherwise induce them to leave  a Reserve and, presto, it would become the property of the Province. But, as  already stated, the Indian is the "ward" of the Dominion, and has no legal right to  dispose of property. If money is paid to the Indian without the consent of the  trustee (the Dominion Government) it is at the risk of the party who pays it and,  should the trustee disapprove the act, any such monies would carry no legal claim  and would'be forfeited. Another effect which might justty be anticipated would be  a disregard, on the part of the Indians, of the jurisdiction and authority of the  Dominion Government. Evidence of this has already been given by the Indians of  the Capilano Reserve who, upon witnessing the result of the bargain made by the  Kitsilano Indians, asked the Provincial Government to deal with them for Capilano  in a similar manner, at the same time expressing dissatisfaction with their legally  constituted trustee.  Another question which arises out of this discussion is. why did the Dominion  Government not take steps to buy out the Indians? They did do so, and had negotiations to a point of completion, and would have consummated the bargain had it  not been for a written agreement which was entered into between the two Governments last November to the effect that neither parties would take any -action in  regard to any reserve until the Commission Indian affairs had been appointed and  the matter referred to them for solution. This agreement was signed by Sir Richard  McBride on behalf of the Provincial Government and by Dr. McKenna, representing the Dominion Government. The Ottawa authorities were quite ready to take  the necessary action, but felt in honor bound to observe this agreement. The Commission was at that time (March) about to be named. ���������  There can be no difference of opinions as to the desirability or removing the  Indians from these Reserves; that point needs no defense, but the disposition of the  Reserves is a matter of supreme importance and no chances can be taken. We must  retain those Reserves for the use of the Harbor Board.  All that remains to be done is for the Province to relinquish its rights, if any,  to the Harbor Board for a sum equivalent to that given, or for a reasonable amount.  No difficulty should be experienced in reaching a decision on this point in view of  the fact that Reserves are only being transferred from one public authority to  another. It is not necessary to estimate or demand the uttermost value; nor should  technical questions of title be forced into the question. The citizens want action.  The harbor must be developed. To do this we must have these Reserves. The  Dominion Government is prepared to act: it is now up to the Province.  Hon.  OUR MINISTER OF MILITIA  (Prof. E. Odium, M.A., B.Sc,)  ..;...��������� \ . -    -. . -A y  The Hon. the Colonel Sam Hughes has taken a  very practical, logical, and manly course in  handling the drink question in connection with  the volunteer and general militia forces of the  Dominion. He has the spirit to enforce the laws  relative to the canteen, and drink at functions.  The truth of the matter is there are. too many  underlings in office who are in for a good time,  and who do not take the business of the militia,  seriously enough. They like to be young official  drunks, and official snobs v rather than to be  serious and zealous in their work.  The Minister ^l^litia is right in saying V>  these fellows, either attend to your work and  calling in a manly; straightforward manner, or,  get out of the rinta. Intoxicating drinks are  . "taboo,"; andy*fv3^ think yon will continue  drunkard-making custom in Canada while I am in  authority you sh^UiaU down like lightning  The sound semae 'of Canadians is with the  Minister, and will back him np in his course.  The old offieiol topers and soaks have had their  day. It is time that the military ranks be cleaned  out of drunks, and the public, especially parents  of the young fellows who go out to drill, will  hail the change.  During the Boer war one of the British officers  had a number of soldiers under bim and was out  observing the doings of some Boers who were on  a distant hill-top. He was so drunk that he could  not sit on his horse. He ordered a dismount, and  all hands got down to rest, so to speak. A chance  came to make a hit at the Boers, who were growing rather daring. The officer was too drunk to  see, or give orders. Another who had little official  standing determined to act and gave orders to  fire. The effect was a scampering of the enemy  to a more distant hill.  Had not the man with eyes and a sober head  taken the matter in hand, and had he Waited for  the drunken officer to act, it is hard to say what  would have happened. There are too many men  in the ranks as well as in higher positions who  do much harm under the continued influence of  drink. In the Hon. Colonel Sam Hughes we have  a rflan with a clear head, an upright spirit, and as  fearless as he is honest. Hence the old and young  topers must stop short or stop altogether, so far  as the Canadian permanent or volunteer force of  Canada is concerned. Honor to our Minister of  Militia.  ARCHBISHOP BEUCHESI APOLOGIZES  Last week I had occasion to refer to this noted  arclibishop, and said that if he did not change,  lie would find the spirited French-Canadian rise  up and rebel against his power and interference.  Well, this lias come to pass, so far that the archbishop has felt it necessary to send a written  apology to Gonzalve Desaulniers, K. C, leader of  the Montreal Bar.  The quarrel caine about owing to the urgent  demand of the French laity for a better quantity  of sane and up-to-date education. Desaulniers is  on the side of this educational improvement, and  Archbishop Bruchesi is where his noble clerical  brethren are mostly found. Hence the clash, and  the foolish course pursued by the high cleric, with  his quick repentance, his conversion, and his  apology.  .+ *'*������**.**...������..***....

Pbone Fatnnost 1149  GREAT EPWORTH LEAGUE  MEETING.  On Monday evening, at the Grand-  view Methodist Church, under the auspices of the Epworth League Citizen,  ship Department, Mrs. Ralph Smith addressed a large and attentive audience  on "The Woman's Right to Vote."  This was woman' age, said Mrs. Smith.  It was only ln this century that woman  had found herself. All these years she  had lived.a life of repression and suppression. It was only during the last  half century sbe had awakened to the  fact that she had power hitherto undreamed of. Nothing had been too  bad to say of the pioneers; they had  been mocked at, scoffed at whenever  they had passed an opinion, but education had done a great deal to right this  impression. The change was also partly due to woman having to go out and  work for themselvea. Before, they  used to work in the home, weaving,  spinning, sewing, etc. Home afforded  protection, but when they got out, they  realized the hardships and Injustices  they had to contend with. The vote  was wanted for the better protection  of the home, for the protection of  those we loved. Mrs. Smith then  scathingly denounced the laws of this  province, concerning the legal guardianship of children. A mother ln this  province ls not the legal guardian of  her child. If the huband bo wills, he  can hand over the care of his child to  anyone. That law was framed at a  time when there were few women in  the province and white men were marrying Indian women. It is a law still,  and the present agitation was an effort to get equal guardianship. The  attorney-general had himself confess'  ed in an interview last February, that  tbe laws as relating to women were  the worst he knew of anywhere. The  Property and Marriage Law also received attention. With regard to the latter. Mrs. Smith said tbat ln this province a girl could marry at the age of  12 years, and it was perfectly within  the right of a father to give his child  away at tbat age to whoever he liked,  and the child's mother could have no  say in the matter. This bad been  done. A case appeared in the papers  not long ago, and what had happened  would happen again while a law like  that remained on the Statute Book.  The vote was the greatest weapon man  had and women feel that if they had  the ballot, they would see that the  men who sought public honors and  public positions would give to women  full justice. There were numerous  vices, which, were there laws to govern them, people would be afraid to  perpetrate. Mrs. Smith said the time  worn, threadbare arguments about  "Who would rock the cradle and darn  the socks" had vantshed. It was the  intelligent woman, the intelligent  mother who was really the best housewife. We should only have a strong  national life, as we had a strong home  life, and it was only possible to bave  a strong home life, by strong protection, and it was only possible to  have strong protection by tbe alteration of the laws as related. Women  would ask of politicians, were they going to be a credit to tbe community,  were their lives to be worthy of emulation. Are you ashamed of a womanhood like that, said Mrs. Smith. She  thought the day was not far distant  when the franchise would be extended.  Already one of the parties in this province had made it a plank in their platform. A clever retort had been given  to a man who asked "Who is to look  after your baby while you go to vote"  "The one who looks after him when I  go to pay my taxes," was the quick  response. Taxation without representation was a crime. Young men of 21  were not asked their abilities or capabilities or what their character was.  A woman might be clever and a saint,  yet she was deprived. She herself was  in favor of Manhood suffrage, because  it gave the young man responsibilities  of citizenship and there was nothing  nobler to feel and live up to than that.  Women wanted to go a step further  than do the housekeeping in the home.  They wanted to assist in the National  Housekeeping. Give your sisters and  wives and mothers the chance to talk  about these things with you. Tou will  be surprised to learn how much they  already know of these things. You  can do nothing better.    Mrs. Smith's  *S**j*-I**$*-^'*l**l*4*^**2*^**l|*l,*l*ll||l'|l,|l',l|il'*l'|ll'l'll  address was listened to with great attention and was frequently punctuated  with applause, and its termination waB  marked by a generous outburst of  clapping. During the evening Mrs.  Frank Davies sang Gounod's solo "O  Divine Redeemer" very beautifully, and  it was greatly appreciated. Miss Meek  proved an afficlent accompanist.  On Saturday last Miss Alberta  Dickey, 372 8th Ave. E., was the hostess  of a miscellaneous shower given in  honor of Miss Ella Sparling, who will  be married ln August. A pleasing feature of the afternoon was the presentation of a life-size figure of the bride,  who was brought in to the strains of  Mendelssohn's Wedding March and  presented to the future bride, with a  request that she search the figure and  discover the treasures hidden therein.  Dainty refreshments were served, and  a very enjoyable time was spent.  Among those present were: Mrs. N.  Dickey, Miss Katie Chappell, Miss  Florence Roberts, -Mrs. L. Edraanson,  Miss Edna Baker, Mrs. D. McDonald,  Miss Edna Dickey, Mrs. R. Sparling,  Miss Lorna Baker, Mrs. J. A. Cowle,  Miss A. McGregor, Mr. F. C. Roberts,  Miss Grace Taylor, Mrs. A. Keeler,  Miss Edna Klnch, Miss Vera Domoney,  Miss Luella Reamy, Miss Jessie Meadows. '  The Granview W. C. T. TJ. held a  lawn social at the home of Mr. and  Mrs. McLaren, 1002 Woodland Drive,  last Tuesday. The spacious verandah  was prettily decorated with sweet peas  and Chinese lanterns. Mrs. Robinson,  a representative from the West End  Union, spoke on the work of the W.  C. T. U. and its relation to "Willard  Lodge," and Mrs. Macken gave .a  stirring address emphasizing the great  need of mothers and fathers keeping  in close touch with their children.  Mr. Napolene Ghedini, evangelist of  the Italian Mission was introduced  and spoke for a short time on the need  of temperance work, closing with the  remark that he expected to edit an  Italian paper and wished the co-operation of the W. C. T. U. In making it a  success. Mrs. Livingstone, field organ!  zer for British Columbia, spoke on  the need of unity and of being ruled  by the spirit of Christian love in thiB  work. Instrumental music was rendered by Miss Smith, Mrs. Swindell and  Miss E. Smith. Ice cream and cake  were served and a very enjoyable  evening brought to a close.  Rev. F. Lett, pastor of Grandview  Methodist Church will he leaving for  bis holidays soon. The pulpit will be  supplied by Rev. Stapleford.

The Directors of THE TERMINAL CITY PRESS, LTD., printers and publishers, wish  to assure you of their continued interest in the things which make for your happiness and  success. Life is too short and too pregnant with future possibilities to warrant indulgence in  idleness, self-seeking, needless oppositions or purposeless employment.  The Terminal City Press, Ltd., tvas organized and is perpetuated for the purpose of contributing to the healthy growth of Greater  Vancouver and the permanent development of1  British Columbia.  To more effectively accomplish this purpose THE WESTERN CALL, a weekly news-  paper, is published and widely circulated. It is independent, outspoken, vigorous, impartial  and fully abreast of the times. This paper is feared by the lawless and relied upon by all citizens of clean mind and sound judgment. In news items it cannot hope to compete with the  dailies, but in editorials and comments on live issues it is recognized as unexcelled in Vancouver.  ' In order to measure up to the demands of present and prospective increase of business,  an annex has been added to the old quarters, giving an aggregate of over 3,000 SQUARE  FEET FLOOR SPACE. A No. 1 Miehle Press has just been installed to secure perfection  and range in the fine art of printing. A staff of skilled union workmen is employed to insure the  best possible results.  The Company now, at the beginning of its fifth year, promises printing of all kinds and varieties from the simplest to the most complex, equal in quality to amy and at prices most satisfactory.  They invite your consideration and inspection of their plant at 2404-2408 Westminster Road,  corner of Eighth Avenue, Mt.

I have been interested in reading  the report of the greeting of the Roman Catholic laity of this city to the  Papal Legate of Canada, and should  like to take exception to some of the  statements made on that occasion.  In the first place the expression of  Dr. Barrett, of Winnipeg, was out of  placed when he called the recent parade of the Orangemen "an .expression  of intolerance and bigotry. Had he  been witnessing a parade of those  arch hooligans. The Ancient Order of  Hibernians, no doubt he would have  given expression ta a very different  sentimen.  His Excellency the   Papal   Legate  could not help using that pet phrase of  Roman Catholics, "Schools from which  God had.   been    expelled," when referring   to our   non-sectarian public  schools.   It is a well-known fact that  the Roman Catholics were the ones  who were strongest in objecting to  the reading of the Bible, even without  comment, in   the   public schools.   I  learned recently of a case where the  Lords  Prayer   had    been    repeated  daily for the past seventy-five years  in the public   schools   of Massachusetts, and this last year, when for the  first time the Catholics got a majority  on the school board, the repeating .of  that beautiful prayer was prohibited.  "Godless public schools"!    Wbat an  irreverent    and   absurd    expression.  Those who use it must have a narrow  antropomorphic    conception   of    the  Deity in whom we live and move and  have our being, wben they assert that  He has absented Himself from the  schools Just because the Church of  Rome la not in control of them.   He���������  the Legate���������says, "Por   many   years  the Roman Catholic Church was the  sole educating factor of the world."  I admit that during the Dark Ages the  monks did keep the lamp of learning  feebly burning in the monasteries, but  the people outside received very Uttle  of it, for there were   many,    even  among the    aristocracy    who could  neither read nor write.   In the early  centuries, the Church rigidly set its  face against the education of the people.    The disgraceful pillage^ in 389  by Bishop Theophilus is one'lnstnce  of that hatred of secular learning, and  another   occurred . twenty-six   years  later, when tbat talented young woman, Hpatla. was murdered.   She was  giving lectures at tbe great Alexandrian University.  She was taken from  her chariot by the   NItrian   monks,  dragged into the church, where she  was stripped naked and cruelly murdered with clam shells, and her body  finally burned piecemeal.   This was at  tbe instigation    of Cyrlll, Bishop of  Alexandria.  Draper, In his excellent work, "The  Intellectual Development of Europe,"  clearly proves that it Is to the Saracens we owe the revival of learning in  Europe.  While it Is true that the Church of  Rome acquiesced ln or aided in tbe  foundation of a number of universities,  yet that Church never did make an effort to establish elementary schoolb  for the common people. It was not  until tbe northern nations of Europe  threw off the yoke of the Papacy that  there began the development of the  excellent system of elementary education which they now enjoy, and in  that development it has always had  to combat the interference and intolerance of the Church of Rome.  How about Italy, Spain and Portugal? Did those countries, while under the thraldom of the Church of  Rome, organize a system ot free  schools for the common people? Italy  and Portugal both had to break away  from Romish rule before they could  attempt to establish such schools. Hia  Excellency referred to the Edict of  Milan, which was published 313 by the  Emperor ConBtantine and Ldcinius  making Christianity a legal religion,  but it was not until near the end of  tfce fourth century under the Emperor  Theodosius the Great that orthodox  Christianity, which stood upon the  platform adopted at Nieca in 325, was  made the sole official religion of the  State, thus making the first union of  Church and State. After that it was  not long until the Church declared the  Infallibility of the Episcopate. The  Roman Episcopate developed into the  Papacy. It was not until the sixth  century that the Roman Church became an absolute yoke upon Chisten-  dom. It was then that St. Agustine in  his work, "De Civitatis Dei," identified the Church with the Kingdom of  God and claimed it was supreme over  all the nations of! the earth. Since  then the Church ot Rome has claimed  a monopoly of all things, even to the  presence of God in our public schools.  How much better it might have been  for humanity if the Church had taken  the Beatitudes for a constitution and  established Itself nearer the Master's  ideal. Jesus taught that the Kingdom  of Heaven is a spiritual Kingdom and  its numbers can only be those wh<*  walk in the way of righteousness and  love. We cannot play at being  Christians, for it is an affair of the  heart- and not of church rites and  ceremonies. The ideal of Jesus was  to bring every man's Individuality to  perfection, and not make, him a little  cog in a huge machine. The Roman  Catholic Church is nothing more nor  less than a great machine that not  only would like to have charge of all  modern education, but alms at subjugating man's reason and robbing  him of his individuality. I seriously  doubt whether men trained in the  Catholic Church make as good citizens  as Protestants. "By their fruits ye  shall know them." I am convinced  that separate schools tend to make  less desirable citizens of both Protestants and Catholics, for there is a  tendency to develop and foster prejudice which makes narrower and leBB  capable men. However, there ls a fundamental difference between a Roman  Catholic and a ProteBtant: the former  owes his allegiance to the Church, the  latter directly to God. The Papal  Legate says he Is thankful to God for  the liberty of the Church under the  British Government; but surely the  Roman Catholics are making poor use  of ^thelr liberties in trying to rend  asunder the common school system of  our fair province.

Mot Point Iron  Electric Stove  A Great Japanese  ipjrmifui-jiver  The Honorable Ebara, member of  the House ot Peers ln Japan, was in  the City of Vancouver last week, snd  received much attention by the Japanese, residents as well as by the Hon.  Mr. Hori, Consul for Japan.  ��������� Wednesday, p.m.���������Mr. Ebara was  the guest of the Japanese Methodist  Church, of wbicb tbe Reverend Mr.  Kanassawa is tbe pastor. At tbat function tbere were present to do the guest  honor, tbe Rev. Doctor Whlttington,  Rev. Doctor Crummy, Rev, Doctor  Osterhaut, Professor Odium, and  others In addition to the membership  of the church.  Luncheon was enjoyed on tbe following day at the home of the Japanese Consul, Mr. Hori, on Davie St.  At the table there were the Hon. Mr.  Ebara; bis interpreter, Mr. Varna-  moto; Mr. Hatori, M. P. for Okayama;  Mr. Hori, the Japanese Consul; Mr.  Watanabe, the Assistant Consul for  Vancouver; the Rev. Kanazawa, Rev.  Dr. Whlttington, Rev. Dr. Crummy,  Rev. Dr. McKay and Professor Odium.  After a splendid repast the Honorable  Mr. Ebara made an excellent address  on the ancient and modern history of  Japan. His speech was given in Ja  panese. and interpreted by Mr. Yama-  moto. On behalf of the guests -of the  Consul, Professor Odium was called  on for a reply to the historic deliverance, and spoke highly of the Japanese nation and people.  In the evening there was a mass  meeting of the Japanese community  in the Orange Hall, which was packed  to the doors.  The President of the Japanese Association gave an excellent address of  welcome to the Honorable Mr. Ebara  and his companions.  Then Mr. Yamamoto spoke for about  half an hour and gave good advice, as  well as some current history of the  doings of his people in the States..  Then the member for Okayama  spoke for three-quarters of an hour,  and made a splendid speech. He is an  able platform speaker.  After Mr. Hatori, M. P., finished,  the Hon.' Mr. Ebara gave one of tbe  finest addresses one could desire. It  was given in the most perfect Japanese, and might be called poetic prose.  The Immense audience sat patiently  from 7 p.m. until after 10 p.m., and  seemed ready to sit all night if necessary.  From the Orange Hall the travellers  went to the C. P. R. docks to catch  the steamer for Victoria so as to connect for Seattle.

In addition, they are all earnest  Christian men of the highest standing  in the Christian Church of tbeir own  country. And it was j. ricn treat for  those Canadians who lived in Japan  some years to meet these official re-  pfesentatlves of that country. The  writer has been well acquainted with  all the Japanese Consuls in Vancouver, and he feels assured that the  present Consul, Mr. Hori, will give  strength and dignity to the position,  and add much to the value of tbe post  both from the Japanese and Canadian  view-point.  OCEAN  PARK  NEWS  This week has been ideal camping  weather, and a great many took advantage of it. Misses Mabel Stone  and B. Preston spent several days  with Dr. Bolton and family.  Mr. and Mrs. Madden spent the  week-end with Mr. C. E. Reid.  Mr. Peter Wright had a house, full,  who thoroughly enjoyed themselves,  and all were loud in tbe praises of  their host and hostess.  Mr. and Mrs. Lightfoot entertained  a crowd over the week end.  Mr. and Mrs. Dobson gave a lawn  party and concert, which .was greatly  appreciated.  Dr. Milliken and family from Regina  moved into camp last week with Mr.  and Mrs. Wilson of New Westminster.  Mrs. Caple and boys spent the weekend with Mrs. Powell.  Dr. Milliken preached in tbe New  Tabernacle on Sunday, after which a  Sunday school was organized, with  Geo. Grant as superintendent and N. G.  Cull secretary. About 50 were In attendance.  B. Wintmute has his new cottage  nearly    completed.   There    is    some  speculation as to who is to occupy it,  for it certainly looks too large for a  bachelor.

I made no attempt to pass be*  jrond the limits, but, from statements  of the dragoon, and various officers  jwlth whom I conversed,  mapped In  ry mind the entire scheme of defense,  visited a number of these encampments, finding ln each' merely a small  guard retained for the day, the majority of the troops being off on liberty.  IBoon after noon these began to throng  Ithe water front, eager to view the  looming spectacle. I was, myself, ln  fthe Yager's camp, finishing a late  Sunch, with a few officers, when the  -announcement came that the water  procession had started.  CHAPTER III.  The Fete and Mlachlsnxa. ;  . I confess that up to this time I hsd  (experienced little Interest In the af*  jtalr. After Valley Forge It was hard  for an American soldier to admire  such boys' play, or to enter Into the  Spirit of British fun making. Besides  tbe danger of my position, the fear  of some slip ot tongue betraying me.  _dxirwaw^*u^cuaweCQjwi  {the knowledge that I was ln the very  heart of the enemy's camp, with grim,  stem duties to perform and a return  Journey to accomplish, kept mo nerved  to a point where I thought of little  j else than my task. But now I dared  i not remain indifferent, and. Indeed, the  ! enthusiasm of my companions became  j contagious, and I joined with them  I eagerly, as they hurried forth to the  jbset point of view. Once there the  sight revealed aroused me to an enthusiasm scarcely less than that of  (those crowding about Few, Indeed,  have ever witnessed so gorgeous a  spectacle as that river presented.  ��������� Well out in the stream lay the vessels of war���������the Fanny, Roebuck and  Vigilant���������together with a long line of,  transports, stretching as far as the  aye could see, fags flying, and decks  Icrqwded with spectators. The pageant  came down with the tide, moving in  three divisions to the inspiring music  of several bands, the oars of galleys  jand barges keeping exact Intervals.  As they passed us tha officers beside  ma named the various occupants. In  tha leading galley were Sir William,  .Lord Howe, Sir Henry Clinton, the of*  jfioera of their suites and some ladles.  In the last of the boats stood General  !Knyphausen, the Hessian commander.  Between these were flat-boats, covered  jwlth. green cloth, loaded with ladies  and gentlemen, or else containing  jbands. Six barges, darting here and  [there, kept open space amid the  Iswanns of small boats. Everywhere  jthe eye swept over a riot of color, ahd  fthe ear caught a babel of sound. As  Ithe last barge glided by the man next  :me growled in disgust:  "Those are lucky dogs off duty to-  iday." His eye caught mine. "Why  dont you go after them,. Fortesque?  There will be plenty of fun afoot  yonder where they land."  "Where is that?"  "At the old fort; follow tha crowd,  and you'll not go astray. Have you  a ticket?"  ; "Captain Andre honored me with  One this morning."  "Then you are good for the first  row. Pon't miss it, man," with enthusiasm. " 'Twill be such a sight as has  not been witnessed since the Field of  tbe Cloth of Gold."  ;   "A passage at arms, you mean?'-'  ������'Ayl as gorgeous as tbose of ' tbs  |old*tlu.e knights; a fair conceit as 1  read the program. I'd be there now  but for the damned orders that hold  ime bere. If yrou rida bard you can  imaka tbe spot befort they coma  ashore."  There was no reason I should not  go, and much in the glittering prospect  appealed to me. Five minutes later  % was trotting out of the Yager camp,  pressing passage through the Crowds,  already, headed southward, the dragoon riding silently at my heels.  Mounted men that day were few, and,  doubtless believing wa were connected wltb the pageant, tba Jam sullenly  parted, and gave us opening, so we  reached the site of the old fort as the  barges began discharging their occupants. A glance about, howevet,  convinced me as to where the lists  were to be run, and I beaded iny horse  In that direction and gained a point  of vantage before the throng poured ln.  I was somewhat to tba right of the  big stand, the restive heels ot my  horse keeping the crowd away, and  fwith a clear view as far as the river  bank, tt was, maybe, 400 yards down  S gentle slope to the water's edge,  where tbe line was forming. This pas*  isageway was lined with onlookers,  held back by numerous guards, while  to my left extended a square lawn,  perhaps 160 yards each way, surround*  jed by a double rank ot grenadiers, the  bayonets gleaming on their guns. This  open space was equipped with everything needed for the coming tourney,  and on three sides were tiers of raised  seats. I had barely observed all this  when the guns of the Roebuck, echoed  by those of the Vigilant, began to  boom a salute, and the head of the  column of marchers began slowly  mounting tho slope. The costumes  worn were as varied as those of a  masquerade, representing all the  changes since the days of chivalry.  The whole line glowed wltb color, and  gleamed with steel.  Hike some great serpent, glittering  in the sun, this procession passed under the triumphal arches and disappeared as Its members took prescribed  positions on the stands, or ln the pa*  vllions bordering the field of contest  As thus arranged the grouping of col*  ors was most brilliant In the front  of each pavilion were seven young ladles, attired picturesquely ln Turkish  costume, wearing ln their turbans  4hose favors with which they meant  to reward the knights contending ln  their honor. Behind these, and occupying all tho upper seats, were the  maidens representing the two divisions of the day's sports���������ladles of the  Blended Rose and ladies of the Burn-  leg Mountain. From the crowd surging around I heard name after name  mentioned, as famous Philadelphia  I belles were pointed out not a few fa  miliar to me. Even as X gased upon  that galaxy of beauty, half angry that  Americans should take part In such a  speotaole of British triumph, the field  was cleared for the lists, and a sound  of trumpets came to us from a distance.  Ont into the opening rode tbe contending knights, attended by esquires  on foot dressed ln ancient habits of.  white and red silk, and mounted on  gray horses. From the other direction  appeared their opponents, in black  and orange, riding black steeds, while  to tba oenter advanced the herald  loudly prodaiming the challenge. I  knew not who they all were, but they  made a gallant show, and I overheard  many a name spoken of soldiers met  ln battle���������Lord Cathcart, Captain An*j  dre, Major Tarlton, Captain Scott Ay!,  and they fought well that day, those'  White and Black knights on the mimic  field. At last the two chiefs���������Lord  Cathcart for the Whites, and Captain  Watson oi the Guards, for the Black;;  ���������were alone contending furiously,  when the marshal of the field rushed  in between, and struck, up their weapons, declaring the contest done, the  honor of each side proven. As the  company broke up, flowing forward to  the great house beyond, the . vast  crowd of onlookers burst through the  guard lines, and, like a mighty torrent,  swept over the field. It was a wild,  Jubilant yelling masB, so dense as to  be irresistible* even those of us on  horseback being pressed forward,  helpless chips on the stream.  I endeavored to press back, but my  restive animal, startled by the dig of  jthe spur, the yells, the waving of  iarms, refused to face the tumult, and  whirled madly about For a moment  1 all but lost control, yet evon as he  ���������plunged rearing Into the air, I saw before me the appealing face of a worn-  Sn. How she chanced to be there  lone, ln the path of that mob, I  jknow not; where ber escort had disappeared, and how she had become  separated from her party, has never  Jbeen made clear. But this I saw, even  as I struggled with the hard-mouthed  brute under me���������a slender, girlish figure attired as a lady of the Blended  Rose, h white, frightened face, arm?  outstretched, and dark blue eyes beseeching help. Already the front of  the mob was upon her, unable to  swerve aside because of the thousands  pushing behind. In another moment  she would be underfoot, or hurled into  the air. ,-ReckleBs of all else, I dug  jn my spurs, yelling to the Light Dragoon beside me, even as my horse  Heaped. I scarcely know what happened, or how It was accomplished-  only I l^ad the reins gripped In my  teeth, both my hands free. That instant I caught her; the next she was  on my arm, swung safely to the saddle,  held to me with a grip of steel, the  animal dashing forward beneath his  double burden into the open field.  Then the dragoon, riding madly,  gripped the bit, and the. affair was  over, although we must have galloped a hundred yards before the  trembling horse was brought to a  stand. Leaving him to the control of  tbe soldier, I sprang to the ground,  bearing the lady with me. We were  behind one of the pavilions, facing the  bouse, and she reeled as her feet  touched the earth, so that I held her  from falling. Then her lashes lifted,  land the dark blue eyes looked Into my  face.  , "You must pardon my roughness," I  apologized, "but there was no time  for ceremony."

"Then," I ventured, "may I hops to  receive the reward, fair lady?"  She laughed, a little tremor ot nervousness in the sound, but her eyes  full of challenge.  "And what Ib that?"  "Your name; tbe hope of better acquaintance."  Her eyes swept my uniform ques-  tlonlngly.  "You are not of the garrison?"  "No; a courier Just arrived from  New York."

I stood as she left me, staring while  she crossed the lawn' and Joined a  dark-faced officer of Rangers. Once  she glanced back over her shoulder,  and then disappeared in the crowd  of revelerB.  I had not intended to remain in  Philadelphia through the night. Already I had secured the information  sought, and now must consider the  safest and quickest method of escape.  It seemed to me this night, given up  to revelry, afforded the best possible  opportunity for my safely passing the  British guard lines. Tomorrow discipline would be resumed, the soldiers  Would return to tbelr posts and the  dtlsens of the city would again appear on the streets. This would greatly intensify ray danger, for, st any  moment, I might encounter soma one  who knew me, who might denounce  me to tbe authorities. ���������  That this was the esaot truth of tho  situation could not ba denied, yet  now, every reckless Impulse of my  disposition urged ma to remalni tha  Invitation of those laughing blue ayes,  tne challenge I read ln tha lady's fair  faoe, the unsolved mystery of her Identity, all combined In a temptation t  found lt impossible to resist For a;  dance with her, a possible understanding, I was willing to venture life itself.  It must have been nearly nine  o'dock when, in company with a.  young cornet, I rode up to the house  given UP t0 festivities, and, turning;  over our horses to the oare ot cavalry:  grooms, climbed the wide steps to the  door leading into the hall.  ill was a riot of color, rich, bewildering, with smiling faces, and laugh-*  Ing lips everywhere. In such a spot'  amid such surroundings, war seemed;  a dream, a far-off delirium.  Hy companion disappeared, and,;  to escape the pressure of those surg*-;  lug back and forth through the wide'  doorway, I found passage dose to the;  wall, and half circled the room,, finally!  discovering a halting place In the recesses of a window, where, partially  concealed myself by flowing ourtalns,;  X could gase out over tbe brilliant assemblage. Half ashamed of the plainness of my own attire, and feeling a  stranger and an alien, I was yot cSn-t  sdously seeking tha one faoe which J  bad lured me there.  . 'Enough conversation reached me to  nlsdose a promised display of fireworks on the lawn, and almost lmme-1  jdlatcly a. magnificent bouquet of rock*  '���������ts shot up into the black sky, llluml-'  Dating everything wltb a glare of fire.  This was followed by tbe lighting up  ���������of the triumphal arch, and the burst-1  |tng of balloons high overhead. Attracted by the spectacle, I was staring out:  at tbe dassling scene, wben a voice  spoke at my shoulder.  " 'Tls a relief to see even ona sol*  dler present ready for duty."  . I turned to look into a pair of steady  blue eyes, with a bit of mocking laughter in tbeir depths, the face revealed  clearly in the glare of the rockets.  '��������� "Necessity only," I managed to reply. ��������� "I can be as gorgeous as these  others, had I brought a bag with me."  I "No doubt; every British regiment  tries to outdo the others In ribbons  and gold lace. Really they become  .tiresome with such foppery In war  times. See how they play tonight  like children, the city practically unguarded from attack," she waved an  ungloved hand toward tbe dark with*  tout. "I venture there are men out  yonder, sir, who are not dancing and  laughing away these hours."  . My cheeks burned.  I "You mean Washington's troops?"  I "Aye! I saw them here in Philadelphia before Sir William came," ber  voice lowered, yet earnest, "and they  are not playing at war; grim, silent,,  sober-faced men, dressed in odds andj  ends, not pretty to look at; some tattered and hungry, but tbey fight hard.;  Mr. Conway was telling us yesterday1  of how they suffered all winter long,!  while we danced and feasted here,:  ���������Washington himself sleeping wltb thej  Sow drifting over him. You do not!  ow the Americans, for you are not'  long across the water, but they are;  not the kind to be conquered by such'  'child's play as this."  , "You are an American, thenf*  i "By birth, yes." unhesitatingly. "We  are of those loyal to the king, but���������I  admire men."  It was with an effort I restrained!  my words, eager to prodalm my serv-i  Ice, yet comprehending Instantly that!  I dare not even trust this plain-spoken  girl with tbe truth. She respected the!  men, sympathized with the sacrifices  of Washington's little army, contract-  ad all they endured with the profligacy  bf the English and Hessian troops, and  yet remained loyal to the king's cause.  Even as I hesitated she spoke again.  "What is your regiment?"  "The Forty-second Foot"  "You have not yet been ln action  In America?"  "No, but I have Just crossed the Jerseys with dispatches."  She shook her head,.her cheeks  glowing.  "My home was there when the war  began," she explained simply. "Now  it ls hate, pillage and plunder everywhere. We fled to Philadelphia for  our lives, and have almost forgotten  we ever had a home. We loyalists are  paying a price almost equal to those  men with Washington. 'Tis this memory which makes me so bitter toward  those who play amid the ruins."  "Yet you have seemed to enter Into  the gay spirit of the occasion," and  my eyes swept over ber costume.

"But was this a mistake? Did X read  altogether wrong?"  "Don't expect a confession from me,  sir,1* demirely. "I have no memory  of any promise."

Canada possesses some six hundred  billion board feet of merchantable timber, worth perhaps ten billion dollars.  Canadians are cutting off this timber  at the rate of about 100 board feet per  acre, or eight billion board feet a  year.  The fire loss is estimated to be 950  board feet per acre per annum.  We are allowing from fifty million  to two hundred million dollars worth  of this timber to burn up every year.  Worse than that, we are burning  young growth, forest litter and soil  fertility on hundreds of thousands of  acres. That means no timber ln the  future for our children and children's  children. Forest fires, continued, make  deserts.  With the trees an������ young growth go  the roots and soil cover, with their undoubted powers of holding water and  soil together. Floods come frm' districts where the trees have been removed. -  On the prairie, shelter belts and  woodlots are protecting crops, stock  and houses from the extremes of climate, and are providing the farmers  with fence posts and stringers.  Fifty per cent of Canada is capable  of growing tree crops and nothing else.  Only a fraction of this absolute forest area is growing trees as it might  The rest is comparatively unproductive.

The first issue of the enlarged "Jour*  nal of Commerce" with which Is incorporated  the  "Shareholder,*  under  the editorship of Mr. J. C. Ross, M.A.,  made its appearance this week.   The  number is a fair index of what may be  expected from the   amalgamation of  two of Montreal's oldest weekly publications, the "Journal of Commerce" established   in   1875   and   the   "Shareholder" in 1878.   The new paper will  undoubtedly make a large place for itself in the Journalistic field.   It is a  commercial   paper   in <��������� the 1 broadest  sense, treating the fields of banking,  insurance,  transportation,  commerce  and manufacturing.   A special feature  is an illustrated   section,   describing  Canada's great basic industries, the  one this week being devoted to the  textile industry, written by the Editor  apd Associate Editor of the "Canadian  Textile Journal".   Other contributions  include articles from the pen of O. D.  Ekelton, Professor ol' Economics   in  Queen's University;  a London letter  by Mr. W. E. Dowding; an interesting  article on the struggle between Mon-  real and New York for the grain trade  of Western Canada.    Many other articles of interest and value to, business  men are found in the number.  The "Journal of Commerce and  Shareholder" haye lately been taken  over by interests that already own  ,.,,. i*nHfSh several well known technical journals, including the Canadian  Mining Journal, the Pulp and Paper  Magazine, the Canadian Textile  Journal and the Canadian Miller, and  Cerealist. These papers under the efficient management of Mr. J. J. Har-  pell, B.A., have' all been successful in  their respective fields, and'tbere Is no  doubt but that the "Journal of Commerce and Sharehold" under the same  managment will share this success.  Mr. . C. Ross, the editor of the  "Journal of Commerce and Shareholder" is an honor graduate of the University of Toronto* and has had a wide  journalistic experience. For several  years he was on the staff of the Tor  onto ''Globe," the last six being spent  as resident correspondent of this  paper in Montreal. Mr. Ross hag also  been a frequent and prominent con  tributor to American and British periodicals on financial and economic subjects.  Giant Crane Puts City  In Darkness  An Innocent, well-meaning crane was  the cause of total darkness enveloping Vancouver about 10:30 odoCk last  Friday night, when the power over the  British Columbia Electric Company's  wires gave out, stopping street cars  and extinguishing lights in homeB,  theatres and streets.  The bird measured more than four  feet from wing; to wing, came into  contact with two of the high tension  wires along the Lulu Island interur-  ban line on Sixth avenue, between  Cedar and Cypress streets. It caused  a short circut and a blow-out at the  terminal station on Main street that  abut the power off every circuit in  tbe city. North Vancouver power  wires also suffered.  Lights in the houses came on first,  then street lights and later street car  power. The break did not last mere  than half an hour, but those who were  abroad at that time suffered for want  of transportation.  Tbe bird was picked up Saturday  morning by British Columbia linemen,  and is to be seen in the front window  of the Province office, where large  crowds collected to view it. The  burns oti the cranes legs and wings  are evident. .'

IIIMHIIIIIIII .IIMI  bang  If we want our trees protected we  must care for them now. Today is  fifty years "ago" from the year 1963���������  and that is not very far away.  All Canada's modern development���������  Confederation, the great railways, the  growth of the West, most great machines���������have come in the last fifty  years.  The seedlings of that day are scarcely more than tie timber now.  Fifty years is a very short time ln  the life of a forest. Most of the timber  being cut in British Columbia today is  over two hundred years old���������some of  it is over eight hundred.  There is a crisis coming���������when the  forests which for a century men have  thought "inexhaustible" are going to  be greatly depleted.  We must prepare for that contingency.  A certain knight of Spain���������where  the long names come from���������arrived  late one evening at a wayside inn in  France, and knocked for a long time  on the door before he succeeded In  arousing the landlod.  Then: "Who is there?" creid mine  host, thrusting his head through a  window.  "Don Juan Pedro" repleid the traveller," "Hermandez Rodigue de Villa-  nova, Count de Malafa, Knight of San-  tiaga and Alcantara."  ���������'Sorry, but I haven't room for all  of you!" exclaimed the landlord. "Better try ten miles further on!"  And he closed the window with a  Is it not possible that the compulsion of moral forces is the great propeller of this mighty world-wide movement?' (Of  course,   everyone is  entitled to his   own    opinion, even a  woman.)   Such  is  the opinion of a  noted Canadian writer, Peter McArthur, who has the courage of his convictions, and announces   without    a  blush his conversion to woman suffrage  because he recognizes that the driving  impulse of the woman movement Ib the  importance of human life as contrasted  with property.   He says:   "Woman's  eyes are opened to see that bread and  tea are dear, but flesh and blood'are  cheap.   Boys and girls are sacrificed  to the industrial Moloch that men have  set up.   Property, being safeguarded  in every way, works Its will with brutal  disregard for life or any ot the rights 6f  lite.     Health, happiness, morals and  everything that makes life worth while  are not worth considering it they stand  in the way of triumphant   property.  Men have developed an entirely false  set pf ideals, and these are reflected in  their governments."   Naturally, therefore, it is the imperative duty of Christian men and women   to   set up and  maintain true ideals tbat shall govern  the municipal and provincial administration.   In   her   booklet',   "Towards  Liberty," Lucy R. Bartlett   has   expressed   her   opinion   also   on   the  Suffrage movement much along similar  lines, and states that, in her judgment,  "freedom can only be assured to any  part of a nation when it is spiritually  ready for it"   That may be so or not,  but we wish to ask if political freedom  is a spiritual gift?   If so, then, pray,  who is to bestow such a gift?   Sinful  men?   How very funny!   Why, Freedom is woman's birthright.  Why does  she not possess it?   Because It has  been stolen from her, and Justice demands restoration.     It is matter of  history that women could vote under  the flrat Constitution of New Jersey  from 1776 to 1807, and there is little  doubt but that women in England had  constitutionally the right to vote prior  to thev Reform Bill of 1832, as the insertion of the specific word "male" In  that Franchise Bill plainly indicated.  Then the tremendous stormy protest  that followed    the    action    of those  otherwise men whose Judicial -decision  excluded women  from their hitherto  enjoyed right, was sufficient evidence  that woman had been deeply wronged.  Students of history know that in ancient Britain women were the political  equals of men, sharing not only the  privileges but burdens  of the  state,  and  this  obtained  also   during    the  Saxon and Norman periods.  Peeresses  and abesses  were even admitted  to  Parliament.      That  spiritual  women,  good women, champions of right and  purity, have at various epochs in the  history  of  the  movement  advocated  equal suffrage is a well-known fact.  To a good Quaker lady, Anne Kent of  Chelmsford, Eng., is due the honor of  forming or causing to be formed the  first Woman Suffrage Society in that  country, which was formed at Sheffield  in the year 1857.   Such worthy names  as  Margaret    Brent,  Abgail    Adams  (wife of John Adams), Mercy Warren,  Harriet Beecher Stowe, Susan B. Anthony, Miss Willard and   scores    of  others on this side of the water, with  Frances Power Cobbe,  Mary Carpenter, Augusta Webster, Florence Nightingale, who headed    a    memorial to  Parliament in 1871, are significant of  the fact that righteous souls had been  stirred to the depths by unjust and  unrighteous  man-made  laws.      That  fundamental principles are involved in  this great crusade    is    beginning to  dawn upon the    hazy    mind  of our  partner 'Mortal Error' is a most hopeful sign,  and  If this  movement bas  Bitulithic paving makes ideal roads.

C. ���������  We Need the Trees  Millions are being sent out annually by nursery companies.  There is a demand for millions more  The experience of tree planters and  far-seeing farmers. Indicates tbat there  will be a demand for tens of millions  more.  We must have trees, ln the forest,  on the prairie, on Bandy lands, in towns  and cities.  It takes years to grow trees���������not  hours or days.  To keep us in timber, pulp, an equable water supply, fish and game, we  must have trees.  Stop the fires.  Stop the waste in logging, milling  and utilization.  Stop the insect and fungus depredations.  Cut timber only when it is "ripe"���������  when it will produce as much value as  possible in usefulness to men.  Plant up the waste places.  Plant the needed shelter belts.  These take time, they-take men, they  take money, but they are worth it.  France has spent $35,000,000 in planting trees on watersheds.  Germany spends up to $13 per acre  per annum on some forests, and gets  gross returns- up to $24 per acre, thus  yielding net profits up to $11 per acre  every year.  As a whole, German forests produce  about $2.00 net per acre annually.  Canada spends much less than one  cent, per acre per annum on the forest  lands under management  If we set the fire loss against the  timber product, Canada's forest balance sheet shows an enormous deficit.  How can Canadians stop the losses,  arrest the waste?  There is but one answer.  Public opinion, public interest, public conscience are the only forces that  will ever make for progress.  Picoicing In Vancouver  Among the many pleasure privileges  afforded tbose who are fortunate  enough to live'in Vancouver, picnlclng  finds a prominent place. And it may  be well said that, baving the desire and  the purpose, up comes the question,  where?  Owing to the numerous and most desirably attractive places available for  such pleasure, where, indeed, may you  not go. Nature has been most liberal  ln ber excellent provision, leaving but  a little for man to do to make each  spot ideal.  So, when the "weatherman" had  "ceased the rain,"tfae youthful minds  of Mount Pleasant Methodist Scbool  turned their numerous feet to tbe spacious decks of the Bowena at 9.15 a.m.,  The sail may be all too short and the  price too long, but the fascinating environments of the place soon cause old  and young to cut loose and go in for  the best possible use of the day for an  old-fashioned picnic.     I  Where there is gathered a crowd of  vigorously growing stomachs, that have  suddenly grown empty, there is need  of promptly supplying the innerfelt  want, so this picnic bunch soon "began  to fill up." Well! yes, it looked like  only the beginning, as the process was  continued all day, more or less, with  icecream, peanuts and candy, between  the contests of boys and girls from  twelve to eighteen years, who in turn,  as each event was called by the umpire, keenly contested for first place.  And the parental pleasure manifested  was no small matter, as they stood by  to see "their boy or girl" win.  The superintendent and the pastor  were busy fellows. The latter being  new to the school was busy getting  acquainted, and in many ways showed  his youthfulness and ability to do  "more than preach."  Methodistic  Mount Pleasanters are  cordially invited to the School Session  and also the preaching service.  PICNICKER.  Brandon Has Costly Fire.

Of this  reserved area, three thousand seven  hundred and eighty-two square miles,  are found in Alberta, one thousand and  eight hundred and seventy-two square  miles In Saskatchewan and" four thousand one hundred and eight square  miles in Manitoba.

Nor is the timber so protected al-  lov. cd to die of old age. . The foresters  determine at what diameter in each  section the maximum production is at-  tainedtl, an when the trees reach this  size they are granted free, or for a  nominal sum, to homesteaders who  apply .to the forest officials fcr cutting  permits. Care is taken not to allow  over-cutting, for it is the foresters aim  to crop the forest perpetually and at  the same time Increase Its producing  capacity by proper methods of management, i  Thus, by this policy of forest reservation, instead o fdenuded hillsides,  drifting sand and barren rocks' and  muskegs, these areas will in time be  covered with great tracts of forest  owned by the people and supplying  their wants, not only now but to all  future time, when countries with less  I timber famine.  been set apart as a forest reserve, not  only to perpetuate the supply of timberlf^t8.^^!." * * the throeB of a  but to preserve and equalize the flow  of the large prairie rivers wheh have  their sources ln this.reserved area.

Believing that the interests of the  neighboring municipalities forming the  Greater Vancouver are identical with  those of our citizens or that perhaps  they are in worse case than* we, the  Executive have decided to Invite every  Ratepayers' Association in South Vancouver, Burnaby, Point Grey, North  Vancouver City and District, and West  Vancouver, to send delegates to the  next meet'ing of the Executive, to be  t.ld ln the Vancouver City Hall on  Monday, August 4th, at 8 p.m. As the  secretary has not been able to secure  the addresses of the secretaries of the  various bodies, it is hoped that all who  c!>n will accept this notice as their invitation, and send a delegation to pre-  s^r.* their views and to assist in the  organization of the campaign.
