BOOZE FOR THE SAILORS  It is the intention of the city to entertain the  men on the battleship New Zealand. It has been  suggested by some that to do this properly we  P-must have a generous supply of "booze."   Now  'at the risk of becoming a "laughing-stock" we  venture the opinion that the men could be most  charmingly entertained without the introduction  of liquor at all.   What about the Auto Club and  |-a series of trips around the city and district.  Nothing pleases a jack tar more than to utilize  the "land-lubbers'" conveniences when he is  asked. Then what about a concert some evening  at which local talent .would supply the parts?  Again we submit that "Jack" loves the ladies  and would keenly appreciate the kindness of our  [���������local lady talent along these lines.  A good lacrosse match or a baseball.-match,  would provide abundance of enjoyment for Jack:  He would leave us with a clear head and a  warm heart if some sane outdoor sports and clean,  hearty concert entertainment were provided,  while he could only have his usual good time,  followed by a sore head, if we shuffle oft' our responsibility onto the "booze."  w oranue mmm  wmmvm  (Prof. E. Odium, M.A., B.Sc.)  Vancouver citizens had an ocular demonstration of a deep conviction which has control of  those who call themselves Orangemen. This conviction is based on several things, views, beliefs  and a long experience of human history. The  Orange association is twofold in its aims, viz.  religious and political. As a; religious. body it  represents a deep faith in God the Eternal Father,  in His Son Jesus Christ the only true priest and  human sacrifice for the sins of mortals. The association has ,the deep conviction that the Holy  Scriptures, under the guidance of the Holy Spirit,  are sufficient to enlighten the mind in relation to  what man should believe and what he should not  believe. Orangemen will not permit any human  priest or organization to come between them and.  their Great High Priest, the Saviour of mankind.  This is permanent and fundamental with them.  Orangemen believe in confessing their sins to  this High Priest, but not to any earthly, sinful,  ignorant priest or human teacher through force,  fear, or threats of eternal punishment. Moreover,  Orangemen believe and earnestly stand for free-  dom of belief and worship, so far as to take the  part of all people, whether Roman, Protestant,  Shintoist or other, so long as these desire and determine to be free men and women. Orangemen  believe that Romans may freely find Jesus as their  Saviour, as freely as can any others.  Politically, the Orange association stands to  maintain the Protestant Sovereign, and support  the British Empire against all odds. Our aim is  to prevent Romans from interfering ��������� with our  national schools, and from making plastic, subservient tools of our parliamentarian representatives. If Rome wish to save men and women from  sin and hell we rejoice, but if they try to keep  Canadians in ignorance of true history and the  high and necessary ideals of nationhood under the  British Crown, then we are pledged to interfere  with all our might. If we do not this, we are not  true to our vows. This we would oppose in any  kind of organization, be it Roman, Brahmin,  [ Moslem, Methodist or other. We have no quarrel  with Sadividual religionists, but we have and shall  have with all who interfere with individual religi-  (Contlnued on page 4)  II  I   I  I   II  H   I  '.3 a*  i ��������� ��������� ��������� ��������� ��������� ��������� t ��������������� ��������� m ������������������ >m i������ ��������� i������ ��������� ��������� ��������� ��������� ��������� ��������� ��������� ��������� ������ ������ ������ * ��������� ��������� ��������� j ��������� m _ 9 ���������������������*1 > | 9 M ��������� ��������� ��������� ��������� _ ��������� ��������� ��������� ��������� t ��������� I ��������� I ��������� ��������� ��������� ��������� ��������� ������������������  v-���������   ' : .,*������' ���������  Ever since last September certain labor troubles have partially tied lip the  coal mines of Vancouver Island. It might be interesting to our readers to know  something of the causes which led up to the strike and it is undoubtedly the duty'of  the press to give the public an accurate statement of the situation. v  About two or three years ago there occured at Ladysmith a most disasterous  explosion, caused by accumulated gas in the inline and which resulted in the loss of  over thirty lives. A very careful investigation was held and it was found that this  fearful toll of human life was not really an accident but the direct result of conditions which could easily be remedied. Subsequently the Provincial Government  passed new regulations whereby a committee should inspect the mines at stated intervals and report; the committee to consist of a representative of the men, one  from the Company and one from the Government. It was made obligatory upon  the men to appoint their representative and a penalty was attached in case he failed  to perform his duties and make a proper report.  Needless to say this committee was not very popular with the companies, at least  with some of them. They wanted more control than such a committee was likely to  tolerate. Early last fall an inspection was made of one of the mines at Cumberland and the committeeman representing the men reported "gas" in dangerous  quantitiesxin certain quarters. This reporttiwas subsequently confirmed by the  Government inspector. Now the Company (Canadian Colleries) were incensed at  the miner for making this report and shortly afterward he was told there was no  more work for Him, he having finished the "piece" he was at. He was a good miner and had worker there for some years and$id not wish to leave the town, so waited around foi* about two weeks but was told daily that there was no work, in spite  of the fact that new men, who were strangers,^ were being taken on from time to  time.   The Company states that they did not discharge him.   That is true���������they  froze him out. .'���������_// V  ��������� ������������������ .  ��������� ������������������'<   ������������������'������������������ ' ���������;    j  ��������� ������������������./). ��������� 7  But that is not all: He went to another mine altogether and secured work with  a man who had a contract from the owners.   He worked for several days, until one  morning he was told he could work no longer.; The contractor told him that he was  quite satisfied with his work, that he was a g*ood man, but he had his orders from  the owners that this ex-committeeman must be discharged.  Now what had this man done to warrant such treatment? He had made a report according to law. Had he done otherwise he was subject to imprisonment, and  would have been guilty as well of gross treachery to the men working in the mines  whose lives would have been endangered.   For doing his duty according to th law  of the land this man was "boycotted." r  ... ��������� .- - -- -������������������- ������������������  *���������   ���������  ���������..������������������.,.-...������������������..  ���������y&y.,    ...:.-- ���������yy-yy^ ---yy-^xi^^yyy--^  The miners naturally felt indignant at'this, and also because of some other minor matters, whereupon a committee of the men waited upon the general manager  on three occasions, they were refused a hearing and were tx*eated with contempt.  It was then decided by the men to lay off for one day to consider what was to be  done. This was necessary in order to get all the men together, as the mines  worked two and three shifts. The men laid off for one day and then returned to  work, but were told to take their tools and leave the premises; in other words they  were "locked out."  The mines remained closed for some time, during which interval the miners  declared a strike.  Efforts were then made by the Company to open up. They were able to get  some Chinamen and a few white men to work. The mines were protected b}r the  provincial police and a small out-put secured.  Later they-secured more Chinamen and these were issued certificates as competent miners in spite of the fact that they could not speak a word of English,  which is demanded by the law as one of the qualifications. Ninety of these Chinamen were i>assed in one day.  According to law, each miner must receive a certificate from a committee consisting of one from the company, one from the men, and the Provincial inspector.  To obviate the inconvenience of the lack of a member from the men, the company  induced the Chinese to appoint a man, thus this committee is now reduced to a  farce, but continues to exercise the functions of a legally appointed body.  As a result of the appointment of unskilled men and Chinese to work in these  mines the accidents have increased 270 per cent, since the strike.  Later on the miners in other mines were called out in sympathy with the strikers of Cumberland. In Nanaimo a vote was taken by the company which was reported to have been almost unanimous for return to work. Now that vote consisted of about 400 employees all of whom .except about 38, were women stenographers, clerks and surface men; over 2000 miners did not vote at all. The company  had at the time 2500 employees but only 400 votes were cast. This has been given  as a reason for condemning the strikers.  Now it is not our purpose to pass judgment on the merits of the ease. In our  opinion the company's manager was brutal in his treatment of his men who sought  <in interview with him. Any employer who refuses to listen to a grievance from  his men is either a fool or a knave, or both. This is an age when the rights of labor  must be recognized. Unionism is not a crime but a "right" and no corporation or  individual has the right to deny workers the privilege of organizing.  Another point is also clear in this dispute and that is: the men have agreed to  refer the question as a whole, or as relates to each section separately, to a committee if the companies will also agree.   What is the answer of the employers?   An insulting public reference to the Minister of Labor and a flat refusal to accept his as  sistance (at least this is the case at time of writing.)  Before the public condemn the action of the men it would be well for them to  consider the attitude of the companies. It is our firm conviction that the companies  are now responsible for the unsettled conditions and public opinion should condemn their course.  ��������� II *.*"������ .

As a comment on the position taken  by the opposition in the House of  Commons relative to the construction  of Canadian battleships in Great Britain, La Patrieof Montreal directs attention to the fact that "when the  Liberals were in power they had all  the vessels which the government required built in the Old Country. Here  is a list:  Minto, at Dundee, in 1899.  Arctic, at Kiel, Germany, in 1901.  Druid, at Paisley, in 1902.  Lady Laurier, at Paisley, in 1902.  Champlain, at Paisley, in 1904.  Montcalm, at Yoker, m 1904.  Earl Grey, at Barrow, in 1909.  Simcoe, at Wallsend, in 1909.  Why didn't they begin then to es  tablish shipyards for the encouragement of Canadian industry f   J  We are so poorly supplied with the  requirements for naval construction  that even now towing companies bring  out their little vessels from England."  ������  ���������-������-��������� hi   i ������...   ..������...������������   !������������������������   .J..*************'********  ���������^^_^mm������w.^**���������i���������������������������.mm���������  iii������iiiiiii������i������ ��������� .  ������******>**���������***������*���������. *������it������������.  WADE REPUDIATES HIS OFFICE BOY  In a recent issue of the "Sun" Fred Wade  indignantly repudiates all responsibility for the  scandalous attacks recently made through its  columns on the member for Vancouver.  Some Free Advice.  Well Fred, you had better take little squealing  Jack, your office boy, out to the woodshed and  spank him in the good old-fashioned1 way; we  Btrongly recommend a slipper as the regulation  treatment for the purpose. It is quite clear from  your remarks, Fred, that you do not read the  *' Sun' '���������; very regularly. We do not blame you for  that, especially when we remember you are a  lover of good English, which is not at present in  good standing,,witji.yqur office boy. He apparently prefers the bar^rooiA variety ������f 6'ur  national language as being more suitable to the  sentiments he desires to express. Nevertheless  we would remind you, Fred, that you are held  responsible by the public for what appears in  the "Sun" and it might be as well for you to  look it over once in a while, because you know  Jack, your office boy, is not always responsible  for his actions and he may misinterpret your lofty  ideals and philanthropic sentimentjs, whieh of  course would be a serious loss to the public.  By the way, Fred, do you happen to remember  the Dominion Government issuing a grant or  lease for all the waterfront at Dawson to some  three or four private parties ? It was while you  held the position of public prosecutor at Dawson,  or some such office, under the Laurier Government? That was a pretty clever deal, wasn't it?  It is reported that they cleaned up $30,000 in a  few weeks. Of course that was not much for  Dawson in those days. It must have made your  honest heart almost burst with indignation,  though, to witness such recklessness with the  public domain.  Well, Good-by, Fred; don't forget to spank  "Jack the Squealer;" it will do him good and  make him amenable to discipline. We will be  pleased to assist you with free advice from time  to time, and also purpose reciting some interesting incidents gleaned from early Yukon events,  whieh of course will be very entertaining to you.  WHAT ABOUT THIS?  The official Liberal organ says, "the member  of Vancouver has done absolutely nothing for his  constituency." This week tenders are called by  the Dominion Government for the construction of  the largest and most modern dock on this coast.  This is nothing.  NO MONEY IN CANNERIES.  The canners say there is no money in the  cannery business. B. C. Packers' common stock  was all water and about worthless a few years ago,  It sold on Toronto stock market recently for  ���������$130. 30 per cent, above par. No, there is no  money in the cannery business.  MAYOR BAXTER.  If we had required any further evidence of the  ability of Mayor Baxter and his fitness for the  high position which he holds, we have had it in  the able manner in which he advanced the claims  of the city for the old court house site. His  presentation of the case was cautious, dignified  and unanswerable. He was convincing and  courteous. If we fail to realize our wish as citizens the fault will not lay at the door of Mayor  Baxter.  SHETLAND  PONY  AND  CART FREE  SEE "MERCHANTS' PUBLICITY CAMPAIGN" ON PAGE SIX OF THIS ISSUE.

The Epworth Leagues of the  lower, mainland and the island held  their ten days' convention in the spacious pavilion erected this year. Rev.  Mr. Westman and W. J. Hogg were in  charge. The meetings were well attended, averaging 100 present each  meeting. The debates were animated  and profitable. Revs. Crummy, Lang-  ford, Hartwell and others were interesting speakers. It was decided that  as Ocean Park was such an ideal spot  for camping and resting that the convention should be held here again  next year.  Rev. N. Powell has his beautiful  summer cottage completed and Mr.  Wood's bungalow ls ready for occupancy.  The park committee have made considerable improvements lately. A  wharf for blathers, good roads and 40  tents (for those who only wish to  stay a few weeka)( have been added,  also a well stocked store for the convenience of the permanent campers.  The resident campers gave the convention delegates a reception on Mr.  Reld's beautiful lawn, which was Illuminated by Chinese lanterns and bonfires. The evening was spent in  games, speeches and songs.  Mr. T. L. Langlois and party made a  friendly call on their way to the Pot-  lach at Seattle.  They are travelling in,  Mr. Langlois' boat and expect to visit  all the Sound cities, and will be gone  about ten days.     ���������     '  CHURCHES  Mount Pleasant tapt'tt.Church.  Cor.

(Continued from page 1)  ous freedom, with the home, with the public school  education of young Canadians, and with every  form of unjust and selfish political machination.  Vancouver saw a body of respectable, loyal,  law-abiding citizens go through the streets on the  Twelfth. Those citizen spectators ndticed the  Open Bible. They saw the naked sword. The first  signifies that their foundation, religiously, is the  Bible; and the second signifies that Orangemen  would fight for the continuance of that open Bible.  To you Protestants who are not Orangemen.���������  Let me put a question. Do you stand for the open  Bible. If you found that it was being taken from  you by force, would you draw the sword in its  defence? Do you stand for loyalty tothe British  Throne under Protestant rule? Do you believe in  the "Little Red School House?" Do you believe  that Jesus Christ is the only Mediator and Sacrifice between God and Man? Do you believe in  Equal Rights for ALL and Special Privileges for  None ? Do you believe in the Wisdom of the  motto: "ONE FLAG, ONE OFFICIAL LANGUAGE, and ONE NATION IN CANADA?" If  you believe in these then you are on common  ground with Orangemen.  The Bible is being burned today in South  America and elsewhere by the orders of the most  powerful political machine this world has , ever  known.  Would the same body order the Bible to be  burned in Canada if it had the power ? Is it moderate in Canada because it has or has not the  power?  If what I say is true, then is it not time to  increase the protection of the Bible in South  America and elsewhere, if it be rfght to protect it  in our own homes and nation? Is it true that  Christ was once, and only once, offered up as a  sacrifice for humanity? If so, how then can it be  the proper Christian thing to Manufacture, Create  and Offer Him up in all the countries of the earth  as is being claimed ? Is this a pagan or a Christian,  act? Bear in mind that this political machine  orders this newly and constantly manufactured  Christ to be eaten on pain of eternal death.  And those wjto disobey are anthematized.  Those who dare refuse are heretic and unchristian. Any within the limits of this monstrous  priestly authority, and who dare refuse, are cursed  with a bitter curse. How then, can you, Protestants, who are in the churches, but not. in a position to concentrate your energies and beliefs for  atack and defense, satisfy yourselves that you are  doing your best according to your lights ?  Will you venture to show me and my fellow  Orangemen wherein you are in a working-position  of advantage? Can you fend your homes, children, and your country by following up your present course? How can you ward oft* the constant  attack of the Roman Machine? This machine is  killing our educational system in most of the provinces of Canada. It has concluded the work fairly  well in Quebec, and has several other provinces  well under way. How can you help? you know  you are not helping and are absolutely helpless in  your present position. Should you venture a trial,  how would you proceed? WWW������ could yow* and  bow could you organize? You cannot. You have  no way, no machinery at band. And you know it.  Suppose you say: We will do our work at the  polls. Well,'what then? Protestants, as such, are  about equally divided politically; and are therefore a political nonentity in such a campaign as  that of preventing a FOREIGN POWER FROM  GIVING A TREMENDOUS POLITICAL BLOW  whenever it may desire to deliver any definite  blow���������whicb has often been done, and will be  done again. The Roman Church is not only a  mighty, consolidated power but it has a host of  fraternal and other societies within its reach for  the purpose of aiding when it is needed.  But you, Protestants, what have you ? Nothing  that you can put your hands on in a pinch. However, the Orange association stands ready to serve  you and the country without  let  or  hindrance.  This association is at the present time putting up  thousands of dollars for the purpose of helping a  Roman Catholic woman in Eastern Canada to secure her marital rights, in spite of a foreign potentate who claims to hold the power of religious  life aud death in his hands, thereby terrifying the  timid. Orangemen are helping Mrs. Tremblay to  get her just British rights. How much are you  doing in this and similar matters? Have you a  concrete method at hand to help intelligently in  this fierce struggle? Homes are being broken up  in Canada. Orangemen are doing their best to  find legal talent and money to fight back the  HOME-WRECKER, the religious meddler.  Perhaps some of you would gladly give a lending hand! If so, then connect up with the most  prominent association, or at least; a very prominent Order, and thus come out of the abstract,  and out of helplessness into a concrete position.  If in my words to you, my fellow Protestant, I  seem to have gone out of my proper place, I am  sorry, for I have only one notion and object in  view, and that is to stir your mind up to the necessity of the crisis now upon Quebec, and most of  Canada. It is time to turn our missionaries into  Quebec, and into every Roman centre in Canada.  Our fellow Canadians are as important as any  other heathen. Our Quebec Canadians are heartily  tired of the priest-craft that enthralls them, and  are longing for serious and effective help.  Will you join the Orangemen in their endeavors to aid those who in Canada are under a more  despotic sway than are the Shintoists, or Budh-  ists? The Japanese Shintoists and Budhists are  free men, and more highly educated than are the  mass of those in Canada under religious educational teaching.  Some person has said of late: "Let Rome pay  for the separate schools if she wants them." I  say no to this; emphatically, no. And the time is  coming when the nation and Empire will say no.  NO. There should be no TWO NATIONS in Canada. Public, NATIONAL SCHOOLS;���������and to  these all should be forced to go. This time is coming. Every fit bov and girl should have to go to  the NATIONAL SCHOOL, until at least about  fifteen years of age. And the minimum of education possessed by each pupil, should be not less  than the standard of entrance to the high school.  Then, after that, it matters little, perhaps, if there  be colleges and other schols under the direct management of religious bodies. But even this liberty  should depend upon the nature of the teaching.  Over every educational institution there shoukLbe  a National School Inspector, and every institution  should be known as loyal to the British Empire,  or go out of business. >,  These are momentous questions. And we cannot sit still and look on helplessly without suffer:  ing loss in the end.  JNOttN RESERVES.  Do the public of Vancouver wish to secure the  Indian reserves for public use under the administration of the Harbor Board? If so, then  agitate for them. Public opinion is a most potent  factor.  WANTU-O-WUN.  This is, a standing ad. for South Vancouver.  Men are wanted to take control of its municipal  affairs and administer them sanely and in the  public interest. The public are getting tired of  the spectacular events which have been characteristic of some of its public officials and demands MEN.  WHY NOT PAY W NOW?  The city will have to close down all its work  for want of money, so says Aid. Hepburn. There  will.be paid in at the end of September about  two million dollars in taxes. WHY NOT PAY  UP NOW? Half of this money could be paid in  now just as conveniently as in two months. We  could thus keep work going in the meantime.  Let the council make an appeal to the people for  their taxes NOW.

Meanwhile, however,  the manufacturers of electrical appliances have done a great deal to meet  the need_ of forestry officials. At meet,  ings  of  the  Western   Forestry   and  Conservation   association   lumbermen  have  been  particularly  interested  in  the exhibits of these companies.   For  instance, there are not only the light  telephone lines, such as those that the  forest branch strings from tree to tree  so as to extend telephone communication in a rough and ready manner into  the  woods,  but there  are  also  still  lighter wires, four miles of which can  be carried on a man's back, which can  be used as temporary feeders for the  main   forest  lines.    When   this  field  telephone system is installed in any  district the efficiency of a fire warden  will be increased to a tremendous ex  tent.  For Instance, suppose he discovers a fire in ita earlier stages, instead of going back to the nearest settlement he can rush to the nearest  point of one of the forest telephone  connect  witb  the  wire  and  call for  lines, and, taking the portable instrument tbat be carries with him, can  aid.    Should he need  to remain in  charge of a fire that is in some portion of his district remote from roads  and settlements he can connect one of  the very light wires to the main wire  and trail it out through the woods for  two or three, or even four miles, and  as long as the weather is dry so that  moisture does  not spoil the conductivity of the ground wire, his portable  instrument atached to the end of this  will enable him to keep in touch with  headquarters without leaving the site  of the fire.   Of course, all this installation of field telephone is a very different matter to the building of regular lines such as those established by  the telephone companies for the service of the public, and it may be noted  also that the Forest Branch will install  its  field  lines  only in  isolated  timbered districts in which there is no  prospect whatever of public telephone  lines being constructed, following out  the practice already developed so ex  tensively in the American States to  the south of this province, where the  lumbermen handle the problem of forest fire prevention through the agency  of their own voluntary associations.  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 ls "ripe"���������-  when lt will produce as much value as  possible in usefulness to men.  Plant up the waste places.

There is another, 1 believe1,  about what will happen to children  who learn to talk before a certain ag;:,  but I don't know what the exact doom  la.  Picking up an English pa por the  other day, the first item to 'meet my  eye was "Pear of Weighing Eabits,"  the article stating that health visitors  to the Stepney district found that the  women would not allow their babies  to be weighed, as they firmly believed that if a baby is weighed it will  die before it is a year old.' Most Can*  adlan superstitions have their origin  in the older countries.  Scotch people are credited with an  especial amount of superstition' aud  an especial faith in "the little people,"  and It was to a doctor of Scotch birth,  though of practical temperament, thai  the following incident happened: H.  was driving in the course of his prao  tlce late one night on an Ontario road,  when his horse suddenly stopped and  nothing could induce It to go farther.  The doctor urged and coaxed and wondered, and then tbere occurred to bim  an old Baying, tbat fairies could be  seen by looking between a horse's  ears. He looked, and behold, he saw  an immense procession of Uttle green  folk crossing tbe road in front of bim,  and not until tbe whole procession had  passed could tbe horse be induced to  go on.  This gift ot abnormal siglit on the  part of horses, dogs, black sheep and  other animals, as well as the origin  of the belief that the supernatural  may be seen between a horse's ears,  was touched on by Mr. W. J. Wiutem  berg at the last meeting of tbe Canadian Folklore Society, and from bit  paper, entitled, "Seeing tbe Invisible,'  I takee the excerpts quoted below.  "A dog or a horse, and more especially a mare, often sees a spirit  when it is invisible to tbe human eye.  .The mysterious manner in which dogi  and horses betray fear when there ii  apparently nothing to dread, the bowl  ing of tbe former by nlgbt and the wild  rushes of the latter, doubtless led to  this opinion."  The belief that one can see the  vision seen by a horse or a howlini  dog by looking between its ears, probably bad its origin in the belief common among most nations, that the in*  visible may be seen through holes.  "Knot-holes in wood, called elfbore Id  Scotland, are popularly ascribed tc  fairies, through which, also. It Is believed they themselvea creep. It was  customarily believed that by looking  through certain consecrated rings ot  stones with holes in them, or a wreath  of verbena, that the sight would bt  Improved."  Tbe superstition of being able to sec  the supernatural through holes hns  taken different forms at dlffereni  times, and in different countries. "Id  Norway the peasant extends hirasell  on the ground on his elbows and knee,  and looks backward between his logs  towards a bill, by this means belns  able to see the Huldrefolk. In Pom  erania, Hungary, Scotland, Germany,  exist similar traditions.  "Looking through the rounded arm  enables one to see cpirits. One day as  some people were going past the Ode .  berg in Germany tbey heard the roll  of drums, but saw nothing. A wise  man bade them look one after anothci  through the ring formed by his arm  held akimbo; immediately they saw a  multitude of soldiers engaged in military exercises, going in and out of the  mountain."  There are all sorts of things���������a  bridle, a sieve, a lock of hair���������through  which one may see ghosts, but traditions always make it through r, ho.e.  It is one of the most interesting of  studies to trace the history of cognate  traditions.���������The Globe.  Here is your chance  to buy  50ft.

An important conference was held  Tuesday between Mr. H. H. Stevens,  M.P., and Mr. George J. Bury, vice-  president of the Canadian Pacific Railway, in reference* to the relinquishment of tbe company's claims for riparian rights along tbe waterfront and  particularly In front of Hastings Town-  site.  An amicable agreement was reached, which If endorsed by tbe interest"  ed property owners, will remove any  possibility of future disagreement.  Relinquish  Riparian  Rights.  By the agreement, which was entered into by Mr. Bury with full authority to act for the railway, the company  agrees to relinquish all claims to riparian rights along Burrard Inlet in  the territory where they originally  purchased right-of-way simply. This  applies moBtly to the front of Hastings Townsite. The company has  claimed all along that their ownership  of right-of-way along the waterfront  ln fee simple carried with It the riparian rights to the foreshort. This  position haa been disputed by the Dominion Government.  Yesterday's agreement obviates what  would possibly result ln expensive litigation and at Bmall cost to the city  Tbe C. P. R. agrees to abandon tbelr  claim in tbls matter If the city will  agree to the abolition ot level cross*  togs' between Trinity and Renfrew  streets. Five or six streets are affected In this agreement, to which Mr.  Stevens consented, providing be could  secure tbe assent of the property owners in tbe district.  Obligation No Hardship.  In conversation with Mr. Stevens  he pointed out that tbe city's aide  of tbe obligation entailed no hardship.  Tbe land In the district concerned is  suited to overhead crossings, tbere being high banks on both sides of the  tracks. He stated tbat most of tbe  property owners interested bad already  given tbelr consent to tbe proposed  agreement, and that a formal meeting would be held shortly to con*  firm It.  If the agreement Is confirmed it will  avoid a repetition of the litigation  which occurred some time ago over  the street ends claim. Mr. Stevens regards tbe attitude of Mr. Bury in tbe  matter as a very reasonable and con*  dilatory one, and he expects no difficulty in giving it full consummation.

Dr. Ernest Shaw, chiropractor, has  been a constant advertiser in our columns for the past eighteen months,  and wt} are pleased to. hear that he is  having great success in his work. So  much has his practice increased that  he has been compelled to move into  more commodious offices to euable him  to get through his increased business.  His new rooms are Suite 307 in the  Lee Building (corner of Broadway and  Main street), Vancouver, and consist  of a reception room and three adjusting rooms.. The rooms are easy of access from all parts of the city, as three  carlines pass the door and two other  carlines pass within one block.  Dr. Shaw attributes his success to  three reasons���������(1) constant advertising, (2) 'always doing good work- so  that satisfied patients recommend him  to other sufferers, (3) the advertising  gievn him by the medical doctors when  they had him before the magistrate  last October on a false accusation of  practising medicine.  Br. Shaw's work Js quite distinct  from that of a medical doctor, and consists of working with his hands on the  spine > of the patient for the purpose  of relieving the nerves"1!rom pressure.  He makes no charge  for consultation ,and will be pleased  to make your acquaintance.  Friends of the Rev. TJ. C. Owen are  delighted to learn that his recovery  from injuries sustained is steady, and  that he is so far convalescent as to  be able to undertake a trip to the  island.

Favored by king's weather, the celebration of "the glorious twelfth" was  easily the greatest point of number,  enthusiasm and excellence of arrangements of the many that have been  held in Vancouver in the past. The  estimate that there would be about ten  thousand visiting Orangemen from outside and neighboring points in the city  was fully verified early, when every  train and boat brought, numbers attired in gay regalia of the color so  dear to the Orangemen.  Orangeism  (By Churchman.)  To God above we give the praise,  With heart and hand we join  To celebrate the glorious days  Of Derry and the Boyne.  The glorious anniversary of the  Battle of the Boyne has been celebrated with great enthusiasm by the  Orangemen and their Protestant  friends in British Columbia. The demonstration in Vancouver was a success in many ways. In point of numbers it was a a great gathering, and  it could not do otherwise than impress the general public that the  Orange society is destined to become'  a great factor in the civil and religious  life of the province. In the past the  Orange society has been misjudged  and misrepresented. It has also been  an object of calumny by its enemies.  So well it may be, because it stands  today as the world's greatest fighting-  force against the machinations of  Rome. In Ireland the Orange society  is standing as a solid phalanx against  those who would dismember the Empire, and hand one-third of its most  prosperous, happy, and contented people over to the rule of the priests���������a  rule which has brought disaster, decay, and degregation wherever it has  had supreme control.    In Canada the  rand, arrived from the Dyan. On being informed" that there was neither  pen nor ink, he at once replied: 'If  that be all, I can provide against that,  and it is best, for the first Orange  warrant shall not be written by anything made by the hand of man': and  taking a sprig from a tree of hyssop  which grew in the garden, he handed  it, together with the coVer of a letter,  to Sloan, who, being taken aback at  the novelty of the proceedings, incautiously signed the paper, thus establishing the claim of the Dyan men  to a number which, by right,-should  never have left the vicinity of the  field of battle."  The principles of the Orange society  are better known than the origin of  the order, as they are contained in the  declaration inscribed on King William  the Third's flag when he landed at  Torbay 5th November, 1688. "The  Protestant religion and the liberties  cf, England I will maintain." These  were the words that fired the minds  of the followers of the Prince of  Orange, and in these words are contained the principles of ihe loyal  Orangemen. When the Orangemen  say there shall be no priest between  the sinner and his Saviour; no Pope  between the king and, his subjects,  they declare the principles of the  Orange society as shown forth ln to  .what to every true Orangeman is dear,  "The Open Bible."  The Battle of the Boyne, apart from  its associations cannot be called a  great battle. However, had it been  lost it would have been a great flow  on' the world's progress. It changed  the map of the world, and therefore,  we have Canada British, not French,  and never shall be; the United States,  English-speaking, and not Spanish,  like Mexico and the South American  republics with their lives blemished  by the rule of the iron hand in the  velvet glove, which is likened to an  iron sword whose hilt is in Rome and  whose- point is everywhere. Of the  batle there are many accounts. Mc-  caulay in his History of England deals  with it most fully, but in a short article of this kind Auizotis France will  be more suitable. The historian says,  "The forces of King James were  scarcely inferior to those of his son-  in-law; Louis XIV* had sent him a  regiment of eight thousand men under  the orders of the Duke of Lauzun  On the 1st July the two armies met  on the banks of the Boyne, near the  town pf Drogheda.   William had been  j gently read the Holy Scriptures, and  i make them the sole rule of his faith  and practice, An Orangeman should  Reverently observe the Lord's Day by  going to his church, and when possible, exhort others to do the same. A  true Orangeman does not swear. That  was forbidden. He should be a temperance man. Strong drink should  never,enter his lips. He should shun  the company of the liquor dealer as  he would the plague. More souls have  been lost and more misery has followed the steps of the whiskey-dealer  than war and pestilence. There is nothing in common between whiskey and  Orangeism; they are ae far separate  as pole is to pole, and when this ls  seen, when the injury to the order  that is being done by even one individual in the liquor business is realized, surely the Orange. Triennial  Grand Council shall forever make it  Impossible by by-law or otherwise, for  the liquor-dealer to sit in the councils  of the order. Let this be done and  many hearts that are sad shall proclaim tbe Orange order blessed.  Orange   society   in   confronting   the  same enemy.    Here the methods of-slightly wounded in the shoulder the  Rome are different, but she has the-evening before during reconnoissance  same object in view���������the dismemberment of the Empire and the establishment of Roman supremacy. With the  accomplishment of the latter the former would easily and surely follow.  Who is to prevent this great catas-  trope? The impartial observer must  answer, "It is the Orangemen." Yes,  no other than the descendants of the  men of Derry who starved and died,  and those who laid down their lives  at the Boyne. Long before imperial  federation was talked by the statesmen of Great Britain and Canada the  work of imperial federation was being done by the Orangemen from Ireland as they planted their homesteads  in the wilds of Ontario, as they named  their townB and villages, counties and  municipalities after those which they  left behind them in Ulster.  The Orange society as we have it  today is of humble origin. It was  founded for purposes of defense by an  humble farmer " called James Sloan,  after the Battle of the Diamond, in  1795. From 1775 to 1795 Ireland was  in a state of anarchy; and Protestants  suffered the most biter persecution at  the hands of organized bands of  Roman Catholics, known under various names, but all of whom had but  one object���������the extermination of English and Scotch settlers. Their deeds  of crime resulted in disaster on the  21st September, 1795, when the rebels  who were in the majority were defeated, with a loss of 48 killed.   On  "There's no harm done," said he at  once to his terrified friends, "but as  it was, the ball 'struck quite high  enough." He was on horseback at the  head of his troops; at daybreak the  whole army plunged into the river;  Marshal Schombery commanded a division; he. saw that the Huguentot  regiments were by the death of their  leader, M. de Caillemotte, a younger  brother of the marquis of Ruvigny. He  rushed bis horse into the river, shouting 'Forward, gentlemen, yonder are  your persecutors.' He was killed in  his turn, as he touched the bank.  King William himself had just entered the Boyne; his horse had taken  to swimming, and he had difficulty in  guiding it with his wounded arm; a  ball struck his boot, another came and  hit against the butt of his pistol; the  Irish infantry, ignorant and undisciplined, everywhere took flight. 'We  were not beaten,' said a letter to  Louvois from M. de la Hoguette, a  French offlcer, 'but the enemy drove  the Irish troops, like sheep, before  them, without their having attempted  to fire a single musket-shot.' All the  burden of the contest fell upon the  troops of Louis XIV. and upon the  Irish gentlemen, who fought fiercous-  !y; William rallied around him the  Protestants of Enniskillen and led  them back to the charge; the Irish  gave way on all sides; King James  had prudently remained at a distance,  watching   the   battle   from  afar;   he  the  bodies of the  dead  were  found **���������"���������<**  br-dle   and   ha8tn>' took the  road back to Dublin.

To stand against  such a foe the Orange society came  into being on the field of battle at the  Diamond, and rapidly spread throughout Ulster. Since then the Orange lodge  has been the rallying ground of  the militant Protestants and has been  a help to the State in check ing the  march of republicanism in 1798, when  an attempt was made by tbe French  to land some forces in Ireland. The  first Orange warrant was signed by  James Sloan, and the circumstances  under which it was issued may prove  interesting. "Rogers' Revolution of  1688" says: "A few days after the  struggle at the Diamond some persons  from that locality came to Loughgall  for the purpose of procuring from  Sloan the necessary authority for admitting members to their lodge. Being in his garden at the time, Sloan  directed them to the village to procure  writing materials. During their absence James Wilson, on a similar er-  July he embarked at Waterford, himself carrying to St. Germain the news  of his defeat. 'Those who love the  king of England must be very glad to  see him in safety,* wrote Marshal Luxembourg to Louvois: but those who  love his glory have good reason to deplore the figure he made.'" William  made his victorious entry iiito Dublin,  and in St. Patrick's Cathedral gave  thanks unto God. Thus was fought  and won the bottle of the Boyne, the  memory of which lives and shall live  and shall be treasuered in the hearts  of loyal people throughout all English-  speaking lands.  While the Battle of the Boyne has  brought untold good to all lands where  the principles of the "glorious Revolution" are a living force we shouldn't  hide to ourselves the fact that to be a  good Orangeman it is necessary that  at all times and in all places it behooves the true Orangeman to live up  to the high profession which the  Orange society demands of Its membership.

Bruce Walker, Commissioner  of Immigration in Western Canada,  who is also chairman of the Land &  Apple Show to be held at Winnipeg  October 10-18, states that announcement will soon be made of the passenger and freight rates to apply at that  time. Negotiations with the railroads  are now proceeding. The interest tak-  en in this first national Canadian Land  and Apple Show has been keen  throughout the Dominion. The show  is not a private enterprise nor will any  individual organization make profit by  it. If a surplus is carried it will be devoted to the establishment of scholarships in provincial agricultural colleges. Communications received at  headquarters from the fruit districts  of the Maritime Provinces, from Quebec, Ontario, and British Columbia,  prove that these districts are keen to  make display, especially of their apples. The prairie provinces are quick-!  ly developing into one of their biggest markets, and far east and far  west will ������^ach strive to prove at this  land and apple show its special fitness  to supply this market. That all Canada is to pull together to make the big  land show a success is shown by the  fact that Secretary C.' F. Roland, of  the executive committee, Winnipeg, is  in correspondence now with over 4,000  secretaries of agricultural and horticultural associations in the various  provinces. Coupled with the co-operation of the provinces in the Dominion,  Canada will show her worth and  wealth in such form as never before  exhibited under one roof. Manitoba,  Saskatchewan, and Alberta are naturally anxious for closer communication  with the fruit growing districts of the  Dcm'.nion. and naturally the West ls  even more stronely Interested in the  --Mbit'on of their sra'ns and grasses.  Some of the big cash prizes will In-  "'ud" a $250.00 prise for the best two  V"shpl8 of wheat, with a second prize  rf .150 and a third of $100; for oats  .100 as a flrat prize, $75 second, and  $50 for third; and for barley the same  prizes will be given. In tbe apple competition there will be awarded $200 for  the best two boxes, $100 for tbe second and $50 for tiie third.   A cash  V  prize of $100 is also to be offered for  the best sheaf of alfalfa.  At a later date a statement will be  issued giving fuller details of prizes  to be given for wheat, oats, barley, alfalfa, and fruit; also covering the programme of speeches and instructive  addresses to be given during the land  and apple show. This show is to be  distinctly for the products of the land  ���������not the land itself. Indications already are that lt will be a remarkable  success.  The broadening influence of meeting  together on common ground at Winnipeg in October, in the competition for  the cash prizes, will be of tremendous  value to exhibitors and visitors alike.
