The Exhibition of this year is far away ahead  of that of any previous annual venture. It reflects great credit upon the Board of Directors,  who are the men who do the thinking, planning  and put into effect their plans, so far as time and  money will permit. It should be borne in mind  thai every building and improvement had to be '  first built by the active imaginations of the Directors. These men gave their time freely, and  have so done for many years, that the City of  Vancouver and surrounding districts may come  into their own, in the Way of educational, industrial, financial, artistic and intellectual advantages both tjy way of a large practical object  lesson and in the direct line of material returns.  In their departments every first start was made  deep down in the head and heart of one or more  of the directors, who are and have been at the  helm in the past.  Behind these men are the members of the Association who have shown u_ much public spirit as  opportunity afforded them tp manifest. And  again, for years, behind, above, over and Ground  these men have been the public-spirited bitiaens  who have furnished the "sinews bf war" fpc. the  improvement of the ground and the erection of  the buildings. These are of a very high order,  and when' properly compared are not surpassed  in the Dominion of Canada.  It is acknoweldged and wety known tbat Toronto puts up tbe best annual exhibition earth.  It is coming to be known that Vancouver is fast  overhauling Toronto. In five yean' time, Vancouver will acknowledge no second in Canada,  and therefore aims at first place, and believes that  in timt'tiiite-iMr-eitsr^  able to surpass ber attainments. Let it be now  known that these bold and high ideals are at present working in the hearts and heads of those  officially and representatively in charge. Our  aims are high, our plans broad, our faith strong,  and our hopes are clear and bright. As we now  think, so we plan. As we plan, so will we build.  And thus in the end will be seen our ideals which  are interwoven with the best in the future of  Vancouver, British Columbia and the whole of  this vast Dominion within the British Empire.  As has been said by the press, by the President,  Mr. J. J. Miller, and by our Member, Mr. H. H.  Stevens, the Vancouver Exhibition has already  taken on an international aspect. What the near  future will show no one can surely tell, but we  believe this annual Exhibition will draw exhibitors from all parts of the world, and we intend  that this will come to pass through constant and  well-directed attention to the business in hand,  and coming to hand as rapidly as old Father Time  ���������can move forward.  The Forestry and Mining Hall is a very unique  struteture. Tbe mighty fir trees of the forest?  have been felled and brought to the proper lengths  aud erected as they stood in the forest primeval,  in all their rugged and bark-clad glory. The contents of this building are of a mixed variety, and,  ������8 tbe years go by, they will be gradually made  harmonious with the building and with one  another. Next week will be time enough for  details, but just now we may specify a few things  in this building. v  The big specimens of cedar, fir, hemlock and  spruce at once catch the visitor's eye. These  alone would give ample reward for the visit. On  the upper floor are some fine garden and fruit  exhibits, which prove beyond a doubt that Vancouver is in close proximity to splendid horticultural, floral and fructicultufal capabilities, both  in soil and climate.  Several mining exhibits are present.   One can  .see most excellent colored marble from the south  -of Texada Island.   Better marble than much from  (Continued Paga 5)  -HH 1"M"������I II1 I'M-111 11 l������_'H"t -M-:-.wv������->  NOTICE  The management of the Terminal City  Press wish the people of Vancouver,  Victoria or elsewhere to know that they  are in no way responsible for any promises  or representations made by "The Merchants' Publicity Co." in their pony  advertising campaign. All space used in  "The Western Call" by diem was contracted as paid advertising.  The Merchants' Publicity Co., or its   j  V.   representatives, have no connection with  \\    J   the Terminal City Press, Ltd.  milium*  . 14 IHHf -;-m~>:-*-;-  MONEY EBECHES  Mon^y at 25 to ICO per cent, is a common thing in Vancouver. It is a disgrace to civilization. .  Jews aje usually held responsible for this practice* but today we received  positive evidence of an inspector of one of our large Canadian Banks, who is using  Banfrunds at a low per cent., and re-lending it at 100 per cent. This man holds a  high position in Vancouer society, but is worse than a blood-sucker. He is not  worthy to be a citizen of a free country. J[e poses as a gentleman, but is a contemptible sneak. ...  No man should be permitted to charge any such a rate of interest.  Recently a case came to light where one of Vancouver's oldest and most respected citizens was forced into liquidation because he Had foolishly endorsed  paper for an associate who had it discounted as above, and at public expense, for  other legitimate business men were made ti) suffer because "money was tight"���������  not too tight, however, for this Bank official to borrow large sums and reloan at  lOOpercent.  It is time these parasites were "shown up," and they will be in due timfe.  Much has been said and more has been written on the subject of how to improve  "public morals." In fact, so great in volume and variety Ms been the opinions  expressed that the subject has become so complex and confusing that; most practical men dodge it entirely. This should not be the case, because, as a matter of fact,  it is a fairly simple question. It should be treated in two ways: "Legislative action  and personal endeavor." ���������  The State is simply an aggregation or individuals. It is made up of units,  each a living personality. The character"Af the whole will depeu4 entirety upon the  character of each of its units. 'lfrmv&t\m&ato follow that great attention should  be paid to the proper development of tbfe individual. This function rests first  with the family connection; parental care and personal training will be the greatest  influences in this regard.  There is, then, the other side���������the legislative action. Jt is true the State is made  up of individuals, and individual or personal liberty must be cherished; but do we  not often abuse it somewhat? No man has a right to say what kind <# roses one  may grow in one's garden, but our neighbor has a right to protest against the deposit of garbage in the same garden. Why? Because it is a menace to health.  So in regard to morals. No one may question a person's right to ^believe" in  any code of morals which may suit them, but if in the practice of those morals a  nuisance, is created, then society has a right to intetfere. It then becomes the  duty of the authorities to step in and deal with the case.  Social vice is a distasteful subject. It is difficult to deal witb ^nevertheless it  is a social disease which must be treated. It will thrive and spread with neglect,  like small-pox. We fully appreciate the complexity of the problems facing our  City Fathers, but tbis cannot excuse neglect of a clear public duty. This hideous  social canker is eating at the very heart of our social and ������civic life. Its effect is  subtle and deadly. It deadens the sensitiveness of the youthful mind and makes  it easy for them to tolerate vice in its most obnoxious form.  We cannot, as a city, allow this indifference to longer continue. We must  support active measures for tbe suppression of vice in our city.  "NOTHING BEING DONE"  Fredie Wade continues to state through the  editorial columns of the "Sun" that "absolutely  nothing has been done for this City by the Dominion Government." This statement is an apt  illustration of Wade's estimate of the truth. The  following represents "nothing" to Wade:  *'A contract to remove four million yards  of material from channel of False Creek to  cost about $1,000,000. Work now under  way."  "One-half work done towards widening  First Narrows from 400 feet to 1,400 feet in  width."  "Site purchased for a dock."  "Contract alreadv let for construction of  largest dock on Pacific Coast, at $1,250,000."  "Harbour Bill passed and Board appointed."  "Contract for Drill Hall, North Vancouver."  "Channel 250 feet wide and 20 feet deep  dredged up Coal Harbour."  "Parthia Shoal altogether removed."  "Building permit out for $300,000 Immigration Shed, and contract to be let in a  month."/  "Plans readv and tenders being called for  $100,000 Postal Station in Mt. Pleasant."  "Postal delivery extended to North Vancouver, and large portions of South Vancouver and Point Grey."  "Postal station established on Hastings  Street east of Main."  "Plans for $350,000 Drill Hall now being  prepared, tenders to be called for in six  weeks' time."  "Subsidy arranged for a huge floating dry-  dock in North Vancouver, with large shipbuilding yards attached."  "Postoffice site-and building secured for  North Vancouver, and now being occupied."  "Abolition of the charge on assay of gold,  placing Vancouver on an equal footing with  San Francisco."  To this must be added a long list of minor services such as increase of postal and customs staff,  better office accommodation, more equipment to  do public works, aids to navigation, etc., etc. All  of which in Fred Wade's opinion spells "nothing."   Let the public judge.  ���������SECOND NABROW8 BRIDGE.  Mr. J. E. Griffiths, the chief engineer of the Provincial Public Works Department, is in the city  this week investigating the Second Narrows  Bridge site on behalf of the Provincial Government. It is gratifying to note that the Government is seriously considering the desirability of  taking charge of this important project.  This is Exhibition Week  H. H. STEVENSJt, P^ SUIRAIB  (Prk. E. Odium, M.A.. B.Sc.)  Nearly two years ago the present member for  Burrard in the Dominion House of Parliament  was elected by the people of Vancouver and surrounding district. In that short space of time  he has secured more for his electoral supporters  and political opponents than had been secured  from Ottawa during the preceding twenty-five  years. ���������  It is remarkable how Mr. Stevens in a time so  short succeeded in making so great headway. In  spite of political opposition ox insensate newspapers, and in face of the fact that he went to  Ottawa and at onee found himself in the midst  of the ablest statesmen of Canada, and had to  deal with a group of exceedingly astute and experienced politicians both in the government and  opposition ranks, he has made good to a very  marked degree.  This is all the more wonderful since Mr. Stevens entered Parliament as a novice, and without  experience other than that he had attained in  his short business career in civic legislation.  The newspapers which so fiercely and unreasonably oppose him would do well to take a  turn. Vancouverites know that the member for  Burrard has made good, and is doing a splendid  work in a mos^ unselfish manner. And tbey  know when his ^ppQpeal academic opponents are  falsif yiu(T thf - cwrent record.  . ''Our T|arry** has the overwhelming support  of the Burrarders, and so long as he does as he  has done during the past two years he will have a  sure seat for Ottawa* ���������:���������'  i*s Candid and Wtss 4dvio������.  Mr. Weart, after many yeara' experience witb  the Liberal party, and baving their cause at heart,  and looking for a way by which that party may  be pulled out of the quagmires of its own making,  tells his political friends that it is time to look  around for men with up-to-date plans, worthy  of their great aims and past splendid history. I  do not use "splendid" in relation to the late  history of the Liberal party in Canada, for it  has been anything but splendid.  Mr. Weart advises a sound- sane and statesmanlike policy. He would be more radical, and  fit his co-politicians into more practicable furrows  of legislative culture. He would adopt more of  the Socialistic platform in its radical phase. I  do not mean revolutionary phase, when I say  radical. Mr. Weart would give the whole people  more of the.real rule than they have had in the  past, and in this he is right.  In fact, I would be glad to see him take in  hand the whole matter of the government buying  up the railways, steamships and a few other  things, such as the coal mines, at least so far as  to prevent the foreign and borne capitalists grinding tbe honest workmen down to the mouth of  the grave, long years before said grave should  be yawning for tbem.  If Mr. Weart, and men like-minded, go to work  and clear out the old Grit politicians, excepting  a few of the best and wisest sort, then his party  and the whole country would be glad. In so  cleaning them out and putting in the forefront  real men with honest hearts, and not selfish politicians and academics who delight in fooling away  time in "playing the game," as they call it, then  Mr. Weart would be doing a work that would  place him in the forefront of the Western public  men, and would naturally take a place in the  councils of the province at an early date. But  the Liberal party must, if it would come into  existence once more, become an Imperial party  on the most pronounced lines and of the most  advanced type. To this end its present anti-  Imperial newspaper men must be cast off like  old boots, or dirty, ragged pants. They are debasing the very carcass of the now defunct party,  and should be let out for abler, honester and  wiser men of a truly loyal type.  Though a Liberal Conservative myself at the  present time, I would like to see men of up-to-date  notions of the Wearjt type have an opportunity  to meet our present legislators on the floor of the  House at Victoria.  Sociology in the State.  Perhaps no two men would give the same definition of Sociology or Socialism.   However, most  readers in these times have a fair notion of what  (ContiniMd on Pag* S.

Dairymen'* Palth In Cardston District  . Cardston, Alta.���������No feature of the  commercial development of Southern  Alberta in recent months has been so  marked or called forth more favorable  comment than the rapid growth' and  expansion of the dairying industry in  the Cardston district Owing to the  abundance of grass and -water, the  country tp the west of the town is now  receiving the special attention of the  dairymen, who express the belief that  Cardston will eventually take its place  as the leading dairy centre of . the  West  Home^ Markets Best for B<C. Apples  Elko, B. C���������Since it is now realized  that the apple ls likely to become  more and more the leading staple product of British/Columbia fruit ranches,  renewed^ interest is being taken among  large* and small producers In tne development of the nearby markets, notably at Vancouver and important inland points. A special factor that  enters into the marketing, problem at  the present time Is the fact that but  few of the larger fruit-growing districts of the Province, are yet in a  position to send out a whole carload  at one time. Thia condition, however,  must necessarily be onl ytemporary.  Kamloops Products to be 8hown  Kamloops, B. C���������In view of the notable successes of Kamloops agricultural product^ at provincial fairs in  3������vl6us years, a concerted effort Is  afoot among board of trade members  to maintain the standard already set,  by the exhibits to be shown during the  coming Fall. :It is argued that last  year, for instance, the amount of favorable publicity secured in this way  for the Kamloops district was; very  extensive, photographs of the various  Kamloops exhibits being given a wide  circulation. Visitors to Kamloops  during, the present season have been  impressed with the air of prosperity  now. to be observfid on every side.  been in operation for fully twelve  years. About three years ago the  American Lumber Company acquired  290 acres of/prairie land, planting it  with young trees. At the present time  they hat$ nearly one-third of this  acreage sowed in potatoes between the  trees, and a yearly-crop of 500 tons  Is the usual return. In the Kettle  Valley many cultivated tracts are  being taken up by settlers, who uniformly succeed-from the .outset, specializing in potatoes, fruits or grains.  Many of the ranchers are now install*  Ing Irrigation plants which are operated at low cost by gravity or electric  power.  GRAIN AND CATTLE MAKE .

This Is Our  Story  Try Our Printing  Quality Second  to None  EXHIBITION OF 1913 A. D_  (Continued front page 1)  the States and other countries sold at high prices.  vAny marble that can be used by our men who  deal in this class of goods in Vancouver should  as far as possible be used from the Texada Island  Quarries. This is good financial, national and industrial economy.  Then on the same floor are specimens of gold  ore from the north end of Texada Island, an  island rich in much that is needed to build up a  country's wealth and furnish work for the willing  worker. Such gold is on exhibit from this island  as would, in any part of the States, or Australia  or Africa, cause a wild rush of the* cyclonic stampede character. But our Canadians go very  slowly, sedately and conservatively. Even the  Radicals and ardent reformers will not allow  themselves to be rushed in sight of wealth of the  first order J  Then close by is an exhibit of coal, coke, tar and  ammonia water, the exhibit of the Grand Trunk  B. C. Coal Company of Vancouver. This coal is  excellent for cooking purposes as well as for  steam and heat. From a ton of coal 1500 lbs. of  coke can be turned out. And in addition five  gallons of tar and twenty gallons of ammonia  water. This coal was brought down from the  mines of the company fifteen miles east of New  Hazelton. The property is on the'line of the  Grand Trunk Pacific Railway Company.. Seaton  station is only about half or three-quarters of a  mile distant from the moutfes of the tunnels, from  which between one and two hundred tons have  been mined.  More will be said in time to come on the other  exhibits of this building. In the meantime we  pass into the Traction Building, perhaps the  largest in Canada, erected for such a purpose.  It covers about an acre of land and has an immense floor space. The exhibit of autos alone in  this spacious structure is worth a visit from many  miles distant.. The - monetary value of the exhibited contents is said to be about a million dollars. The impression made on the mind of the,  spectator is strong and deep, and must be lasting  and valuable. The enterprise of the Automobile  Association that correlated so fine an exhibit is  commendable, and speaks volumes for the spirit  of the members and especially of thfe manage  ment.   ":���������;.���������  . --y/\X x       /!"'!' ..  Men who put up so fine a display are 'a splendid  complement of the others who try to bold up the  several departments in a creditable manner.  "Very much has already been said of the Big  Parade, about five miles in extent. It is by long  odds thf largest parade the writei? of these notes  has? been able to witness in agood' while of examining and beholding big things.  Here again the Vancouver PUBLIC SPIRIT  spoke loudly and powerfully. But the men who  managed and planned this monster part of the  Vancouver Exhibition should be considered public benefactors, j Their plans were sublime, and  their executive ability of the first order. The  business men, the city officials, the labor people,  and the experts in their/ various callings have  shown the way to greater things in the future. In  fact this parade can be so correlated to the whole  Exhibition as to be the most striking feature  thereof.  One feature of this parade is this: The men  who employ labor and the men who furni&h the  labor units, the foundation of all wealth and success, met in harmony and on common ground.  If ever Vancouver, turned out to a big treat it did  so on Monday of this week. It was no circus, no  foreign enterprise to amuse for a moment and  carry off a lot of money, but it was all HOMJ3-  made.  When the head was circling around the racecourse in front of the Grand Stand, the other end  was coiling its tail around the streets and blocks  at the foot of Granville Street. A gigantic production !   A striking panorama!  Monday being a holiday���������Labor Day���������a mighty  multitude appeared on the grounds, and fairly  jammed every avenue within and without the  numerous large buildings. All were happy, and  the show opened most auspiciously.  The tent dining halls are numerous, and the  eaters seem to be a hungry lot. Most of the  restaurant tents are managed by the several  church denominations whose devotees give their  time freely and unselfishly to bring aid to the  various causes they represent. These people  are most helpful to the Exhibition, because they  meet a long-felt and a strong-felt want.  The Skid Road seems to be an improvement  on those of former times, and as years go by  there is a hope that they will become an attraction of a better class. Too many rowdies have  ������������������generally been attached to these phases of amusement.   Our ideal is to make it ever better.  Hon. Jos. Martin.  "Joe" is here. He has had a scrap*with his  Liberal friends in London and is now satisfied.  It is reported that he purposes entering again  into Provincial politics. Well, "Joe" can always  pick a quarrel and make a racket, so we may  expect to "hear" from him.  The City Hall.  Whenever a distinguished visitor is being  shown around our fair city, care is always exercised to avoid passing the City Hall. If by any  chance it is necessary to pass "the shack" the  visitor's atention is carefully diverted. Why not  secure a City Hall commensurate with the needs  and dignity of the city?  Prominent ministers in increasing numbers are  taking the stand that they will marry no couples  who fail to procure a physician's certificate that  they are physically qualified for the marriage relation. This is, at least, a straw and shows that  there is a movement towards securing a better  human race.  H. H. STEVENS, M. P., BURRARD  (Continued from Paqe I) ���������'-:''������������������  is meant by the terms. The main notion is and  should be that the State should be the exacit  representative of all, standing for that which  works out to the highest benefit of the whole  people.  It is a fact that governments, corporations,  officials representing these two bodies, professional men, financial and industrial institutions,  have not up to the present time been based on  the greatest good for the greatest number.  Dreamers, honest students, clear-headed economists with unselfish natures, and true idealistic**  concrete Christian workers have before them tiie  physical, intellectual, communistic, national and  spiritual/salvation of the entire group of human  units.  All desired by the true philanthropic statesmen cannot be hid at once.   Then it is wise to  take several steps in approaching the materialisation of all our wisets and most practicable'  ideals. ' ���������->..  Where to be.gin is the question. The platform  speakers and the socialistic press compete and  argue for top much at once. The result is that  they get no nearer to that which is of pressing  importance. And besides there are too many who  lack both knowledge and patience to make perr  manent headway.  Let me indicate a few things that should be  labored for and aimed at without let or hindrance.  First: ALL who need work and seek work should  have work, even if the State be forced to provide  that work. It is a monstrous state or condition  to have men and women willing and able to work  without employment. And there are many such.  This is not right, and so long, as this continues  it follows that the government hats not apprehended the true facts of the nation, and if so it  is unfit or dishonest, or both. Government here  means all governments. ,  Thoughtless men say: Let them go to the woods  and to the railways for work if they cannot find  work in the cities and other urban centres. This  is a preposterous proposition. There are thousands who are unable, totally unfitted to work  in the woods, or oji the farms, or in the mines,  or on the railr^ds; And they have as good a  right to live fairly comfortably as haye I or you,  my reader. v  Hence, I state that the governments should  earnestly and fearlessly seek a means of-providing for every human being within their realms.  If hours ten, or nine, or eight give not employment to all needing work, then the hours of  service in some or many departments of labor  should be shortened to seven, and in other cases  to even six. There are hosts of well-to-do people  who do not work for a living even six hours  daily. All junior units should be forced to go  to the public schools. No private institution, religious or otherwise, should be permitted to take  the child of school age out of the public School,  without there being physical or intellectual or  financial reasons for so doing.  Marriages should come more and more under  the oversight of a commission appointed by the  government for such purposes as eliminating disease through heredity. This is primal, necessary  and eventually will come. When it does, we shall  see much mental and physical debility eradicated  from the masses which today are suffering a  thousand ills through bad breeding. We iup-  'breed pigs, horses, sheep, cows, ^ats, dogs and  other things.  Why not up-breed the human units?  The governments are anxious to increase the  qualities of fruits, grains, vegetables, fowl, domestic animals and everything in sight, but are afraid  to face the task of improving the human animal.  It is becoming the cluty of governments to look  seriously into this matter, and in true course make  provision therefor.  The people through the governments should  force a state of things that will prevent the enormous amounts of wealth going into the hands of  a few, which is the real state to-day. Take any  large company. A few men hold control, and  often they are in possession by doing that which  a poor man would be imprisoned for, if he did in  effect a similar deed according to his ability.  Many men now in control of industrial and  financial companies should be in prison and  stripped of their financial holdings. Here then  is at least one place where the government could  begin to step into its proper sphere.  Take the big coal mines on Vancouver Island.  The control of these, or of a goodly portion, should  come into possession of the Provincial Government. Then as the government represents the  whole people, or should do so, the conditions of  working, the time of service, the charges to the  consumer, the wages to the different grades of  employees, and the whole management should be  such as to do the very best for the people.  If this were done by the government then all  in the employ would have a fair deal, and the  consuming public would have coal at the lowest  price, and there would be no big multi-millionaires as the result of skinning the life out of the  workers. After the coal mines were fairly made  honetsly subservient to the interests of the whole  people, the government might then look into the  matter of general freighting, including passenger  traffic.  I travelled to England from Belgium on a passenger steamer owned and operated by the Belgian government. Why not have not only single  steamers, but whole steamship lines owned and  operated by the government? It is time for the  Labour men of British Columbia to concentrate  on some one thing. Concentrate and agitate until  there is a majority of the Provincial House who  are willing to mak������,;a straight open attempt to  legislate for the masses.  Let one cry be: Mtovenunent-Owned Coal for  the Consumer." Or-let the slogan be, "Let Us  (Continued on Pag* 8)  A woman's work is never done unless 'tis done  the Hot Point way.

attempt Peter was Peter, and I
crushed back my first Impatient exclamation to say hpmbly:
y "AL. right, my man. Ill wait here."
I sank back into' the upholstered
chair, and for a moment after he had
closed the door I did not move. Then,
scarcely knowing whether to tough or
swear over the situation, I crossed the
room, and gased out through the window. Far down the winding driveway,
half conceited behind the trees, a
body of British troops was tramping
toward the house.
A New Combination.
Ify first thought was that this must
prove a trap, and I drew hastily back
behind the curtain, believing myself
justified in an effort at escape. Surely,
under auch conditions, my word of
parole to Peter bad no binding force.
Tet I waited long enough to glance
forth again. The advancing body was
less than a hundred strong. Queen's
, Rangers a^d Hessians, from their uniforms,; straggling along on foot limping, dusty and without armf. These
.must be the remnant of Belavan's
command, released by tbelr guard of
partisans, and now wearily seeking
refuge. But why were they coming
beret Surely this was not the Philadelphia road?
\ They turned In upon the open lawn
���in front of the door, and I could plainly distinguish the faces. There could
no longer be any doubt but what these
:were the men we had fought and defeated the evening before. Grant, with
���the two Hessian officers, was In advance, and the former strode directly
toward the house, while the majority
���of his following flung themselves; at
full length on the ground, as"" though
utterly exhausted.; Some strange fascination held me motionless, watching
the man climb the front steps; The
iron knocker rang loudly twice before
there came any response from within. Then I could hear voices, but the
words reaching me were detached, and
without definite jneanlng. Finally the
door closed, and the two men passed
along the ball, beyond the room In
which I waited. Then Peter's voice
said solemnly, as if announcing a distinguished guest:
"CiptelhAlfred Grant!"
^Tbere was an exclamation of,surprise, a quick exchange of sentences
indistinguishable, although I was sure
of Grant's peculiar accent, and the
other voice was that of the young
light Dragoon lieutenant Uncertain
what beBt to do I stole toward the.
door and gripped the knob. This was
the ��sly known way out, for 1 dare
not venture to use the window which
was In plain view of those soldiers
resting on the lawn. Whether Peter
had retired or not I possessed no
means of knowing, yet I opened the
door silently a bare inch to make sure*
At the same instant my ears, caught
the lieutenant's dismissing order, even
as my eyes had glimpse of Swanson's
broad back blocking tbe open doorway
of a room nearly opposite.
"That will do, Peter, for tbe present
Have the table prepared for three
guests at once."
He backed out casting a quick
glance ot caution in my direction, and
disappeared down the hall, rubbing bis
bald head industriously. I opened the
door wider, wondering if I dare venture upon slipping by unobserved.
Then Grant spoke, his voice loud
enough to be easily heard:
"How did we come here? Why,
where else could we go? The damned
rebels stripped us clean; we had to
have food. Thia was tbe nearest
place where we were certain of getting
any. Of course I didn't know our
foragers had left Elmhurst alone, and
that���for some cause which mystifies
Clinton���-these Jersey outlaws have
been equally considerate. There was
plenty to be had here, and I meant to
have lt ln spite of the servants."
"Ton must have inarched straight
past your own place," the boyish voice
"WeU, what if we did. There was
nothing there, as you know. The

"That's easily answered. Tou forget

"At least they appear to, as we ns*
tnato unmolested. There baa not bee%

war began."
"WeU, if you hadn't been at home,
then would have been one along
now," burst forth Grant rather roughly. "Those fellows out there are des*
Cats enough to sack the house lf
t was their only method of getting
food. And I promised they should have
the chance."
"Oh, you did. Indeed! That would
have proven a friendly aet"
"Necessity does not take much account of friendship. I waa responsible
fbr a hundred starring men. Under
sueh conditions force would be Justi

"There Ib no necessity for Indulging

them, but myself personally. W��jat

Grant remained silent probably not
wholly convinced that be waa being
told the truth, and yet not venturing
to state openly his suspicions. However the other said no more, and finally the Ranger felt compelled to answer.
"Of course," he explained rather
lamely, "I couldn't altogether blame
you for concealing the boy if he had
shown up here, but you will realise
that aa a King's officer I have a serious duty to perform."
"You would apprehend Eric? Would
betray him Into British hands? Is
that your meaning. Captain Grant?"
"What else could I do? Don't be

"And ao you came here to search for
him?" I could feel the bitter scorn
in the voice.   "In his father's home!"
"I certainly did," angrily. "I shall
search the house from cellar to garret
before I leave."

I closed the crack of tiie door aa he
came forth into the ball, having no
desire to be caught listening- My own
position' wss more unpleasant and has*'
ardous than ever. Whatever reason
the lieutenant might have for holding
me prisoner I was convinced he possessed no knowledge aa to my real,
Identity. The probability was that aft*
er an interview I would be released.

Tet how could this be accomplished t
I heard Peter pass along the hall, And
solemnly announce the serving of
jbreakfast He and Grant exchanged
a few sentences, an<J then the latter,
strode to the- front door* where he
gave orders to the men. I whtched
the German officers come up the steps,
while tbe majority of the others forming Into irreguiarllne, marched around
the corner of the house. A small squad
'remained, however, on guard, facing
the front entrance. ~
Again the tady.
I must think "rapidly, and act at
quickly. Yet, if what Grajnt had said
was true, that he had already posted
guards on each side the bouse, then
escape by daylight was practically impossible. From all I oould see there
.was no concealment tfoae at hand,
and while the fellOWf were without
I arms, yet their numbers were sufficient
1 to make any attempt at running their
lines extra hazardous. And I had much
at risk, for if taken it would be aa a
spy, and not a mere prisoner of ���wsr.
There was no place for concealment in
tbe library, but there might be upstairs, ln the attic, or on tbe roof.
The chance was worth the trial, and
there could be no better time for such
an experiment than while tbe three officers were at breakfast Whatever
servants remained about tbe bouse
would be busily employed also, and
probably I should have the entire upper portion to myself. Deciding to
make the venture I had my hand on
the knob of the door, when it was
opened quietly from without and I
was startled by the sudden appearance
'of Peter. Whatever excitement may
have prevailed among the other members of this peculiar household this
model servitor remained with dignity
unruffled. He surveyed me calmly,
Tubbing his bald head with one hand.
i "You will pardon the delay, sir," he
said calmly. "But circumstances have
arisen changing the original plans.
Will you kindly accompany me?"
7 "But-where, Peter? I don't wish to
be seen by these new arrivals.**
"Have no fear, sir," condescending*
jty, and with an authoritative wave of
the hand. "The officers are at table,
end will know nothing of our move*
1 I followed meekly enough, and he
{tod the way up the broad stairs to the
jnoond story, turning to the left In the
upper hall, and. coming to a pause before a partially opened door. A glimpse
within made me deem it a muslo room,
although I oould see merely along one
"Tou win enter, sir, while I return

A large touring acar was  travelling at far speed along a boulevard lined with tress. Large flocks  of sparrows were in the trees, and  several boys were taking chances of  being arrested by the. police by  shooting at the birds with sling  shots. One pebble, particularly  well aimed, struck a sparrow on the  upper wing, and sent bim gliding  through the air directly toward the  driver of the: car; the bird struck  him full in the face, and in the next  instant thinRs began to happen. The  driver clutched at his eyes, the car  lurched into the ditch, knocking  over a telegraph pole, vaulted to a  Ejowed field on the other side of the  ditch, and went full force into a  huge haystack- Despite this wild  swerve, no one was even scratched  except t^e "driver, whose eyesight  was damaged by the claws of the  sparrow. The whole incident had  taken far less time than needed to  relate it.  -Theodore M. B. Von Kellar in Leslies.

Look  at Vancouver at present The atate  of matters Is simply awful. Thousands  upon thousands of white men patrol*  Ing the, streets in search of work aud  cannot ^get It, largely due ^to the  cheap labor of the Oriental. Take tor  instance, nearly all the lumber mills  throughout the province, and you will  hardly find a single white man employ*  ed. In nearly all classes of common  labor, the. Chinaman, Jap or Hindu  reigns supreme.  Then, again, apart from tb������- labor  question, look at the danger point of  it! If Britain is going to keep Canada, and more particularly British Columbia, it is high time she put a check  on this Oriental inruaUgration. Those  politicians In London aro taking up  their time over the Balkans, never for  a moment realising the danger British Columbia is in. There was tiie recent case where several Japanese re-  servisin were caught on Vancouver  Island. God knows how many have  been successfully smuggled into the  province. It is time those politicians  opened their eyes to Oolonial matters  which are of much greater importance  than European affiairs. With;Japan  and China so near this province, and  Japan, to all Intents, -has certainly her  eye on it, there Is every possibility of  her taking possession of it Britain  must remember that Canada without  a navy haa but a poor line of defence.

Has  Canada "the land of Opportunities"  come to this? Vancouver is fearfully  overcrowded, but if the manufacturers  and merchants of the city would cess  to engage Orientals, there would be  ample employment tor the white man.  Down east and In the. prairie provinces, tbe Chinaman is kept under con*  trol.

Friday, September 5,1918  H. H. STEVENS, M. P., BDRRARD  (Continued from Page 5)  Have Government Owned Carrying Service." But  let the labour spouters cut out" their whoelsale  attacks on the government, and their hazy demands for a whoelsale handing over of all utilities  to the government. This is a fool's demand when  made by wholesale. It is time for the workers  to come down to terra firma, as well as for the  governments to get on solid ground.  I do not argue for the government to take over  the whole of the coal mines of the province. Suppose the big smelters own and operate their owji  mines throughout. Let it be so. In such case  they are simply selling to themselves. Let them  so do. But when they begin to operate such mines  then let the regulations and all the conditions of  work and pay be made to harmonise with the  government-owned and worked mines.  Suppose the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway Company buys the Grand Trunk B. C. coal mines in  the Bulkeley Valley. Very well. Let them do so.  But wherein they work the mines let th* conditions of service and the pay be commensurate  with the conditions and pay for service as represented in the government-owned coal mines.  What ails our Union men in all the fields wherein Unions are needed and organised t I never see  them settling down to anything tangible. They  ., talk and, perhaps, jw-ay, but they do not concentrate. And further; there are thousands of men  in all ranks of life who hold views similar to those  above enunciated, and yet they never seriously  make any attempt to guide the government men,  , or the poor hard-working slaves who give their  lives for food without the expectation of ever  having anything put aside for a "rainy day."  Politicians and big monied men will never try  to solve thefte problems unless driven thereto by  the voice of the multitudes. And men like myself  have to get many d cold shoulder and hard look  for just such expressions as those in this letter.  And finally, so far as these notes are concerned,  it is time for the governments and people to look  around for a short method of wiping out the  public and private bars an the hotels and elsewhere. In fact, there is but one cure to this the  worst evil of these modern times. And that is  stop it totally as a privately managed business.  The drinks taht intoxicate should be sold by the  governments alone, and as medicines by the drug  stores. '  .'  Again, I can chaUengathe,w*orkeT8 who are constantly pretending that they are actuated by "The  Brotherhood, of Man" spirit and idea, to show  wherein they have ever done a single act of any  * real value to get free of this their worst curse.  Many of the workers are among the best and wis  est of temperance reformers and advocates.   But  officially and in the mass they are failures of the  worst sort.   If they are honest and wisll the gov-"  eminent to legislate for the best interests of theirr  class let them agitate for the confinement of alf  alcoholic drink-selling to the proper representatives of the government.   As the people, through  the. governments, handle the sale of post stamps  and all therewith connected, so should they handle  the drinking business customs and all thereto attached.  Then there will be no'capitalistic profit. There  will be no sale pushed by night and day for gain.  There will be no forcing men to drink any more  than there is a forcing or alluring inen to buy  post stamps.  Now I ask the Union men of British Columbia  to show that they honestly desire to save their  weak brothers and sisters, and to drive out capitalistic gain with all its deviltries from the alcoholic  beverage business.  The Executive of the B. 0. E. Ry. Oo.  During the past twenty years the employees  of this enterprising and well-managed company  have shown first-class executive skill, and good  sound sense, for the most part. In fact, I hesitate  not to say these employees have shown better sense  and a sounder view of the best course to pursue  than most other employees in the country. I  would go further and assert that the men who  handle the rank and file of the B. C. E. Ry. Co.  workers have as good ability as the average politicians either in this or any other province; At  no time have they been stampeded by the fire-  eaters who are ever ready for the extreme measures of dolts and fools. /  Of late the executive of this company have had  a very trying case in hand, and though they or  the company did not get all they desired, still  they manifested the highest of good sense and  first-class ability. , In the true sense of the word  they worked for the best; interests of the present  and future of all concerned. And one of the most  important gains they made was to avoid a strike  at a time when the public would have strongly  resented stitch an act. The various men forming  tiie leaders of the B. 0. E. Ry. Co., both on behalf  of the employees and the company, have almost  always sho-wn that the public had serious consideration in relation to the differences of the two  parties both as to wages and times of service.  In this way both contracting parties have the  praise and kindest consideration of the public  whicb ill the long run are the chief factors in  strikes'andI the differences leading to. friction between the einployer and employees. On behalf  of the big public I wish to most sineerely express  appreciation of the splendid executive skill mani-  o fested by all concerned, and the wisdom that has  . prevailed. ;,':X' ��������� 'r. .yy.-y-:-yX>  , NORTH VANCOUVER  yX/y.

W.000,000  contract for thia work with the Mo-  Arthur Bros, company.

That the bringing of Grand Forks In more direct  touch with Vancouver and other coast  markets will mark the beginning of an  era of large expansion for this city Is  regarded here as a foregone conclusion  especially in view of the fact that  British Columbia producers and manufacturers are today in a better state of  organization than at any previous time,  ao that the former keen competition of  Eastern products, in British Columbia  and Alberta at any rate, is expected to  figure less and less in the developments industries ln this section of  the West  All Canada's modern development-*-  Confederation, the great railways,, tba  growth of the West,, moet great (machines���������have come fo the last fifty  years.'

Canada spends much less than one  cent per acre par annum on the forest  lands under management.  If we set the flre 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.  For Rent and Sale Cards 10c ea.  Come to the Western Call Off ia  Fruit Showjt Winnipeg  With an all-Canadian working committee and the enthusiastic co-operation of the two greatest factors���������the  people and the press���������Canada's first  Land and Apple Show to be held ln  Winnipeg, October 10th to 18th, is  growing larger and larger, and will  surpass in excellence the anticipations  of thoBe who were most optimistic  when the project was started. Tbe  advisory board of the Land and Apple  Show ls now complete and comprises  thirty-five names, fifteen of whom are  Winnipeg business men acting as a  Central. Committee, with outside representatives on the board froni Brit*  ish Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan,  Manitoba, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Ontario. The general secretary of the Show Is Chas. F. Roland,  whose offices are In the Exposition  Building, Winnipeg.  New Featuree  In order to create tbe greatest interest at the Canada Land and Apple  Show the Management have decided  to carry out many new and Interesting  features. There will be an "Ontario  Day," a "British Columbia Day," a  "Maritime Province Day/' a "Prairie  Province Day," etc., and on these days  it is Intended to give away to visitors  at tiie Show souvenirs in the shape of  a carton, the contents of which will he  some product of the land. As this  feature will be ah advertisement for  the particular provlncej district society or grower, the management of the  Show expect the "Carton Souvenir" to  be furnished by those directly benefitting by the advertisement As a  suggestion any district might contribute a potato carton, an apple carton,  a vegetable carton, sample grain carton, etc. The Land and Apple Show  management are doing everything  possible to co-operate with governments, railways, agricultural societies,  fruit organizations, and individual ex*  hlbitors ln making their exhibit attractive. \'i  National Jn Scope  At the Show, visitors will have the  opportunity of seetag the products of  all agricultural sections. Visitors will  be able to talk with people who know  the possibilities of their particular  districts. The people will hear lectures by experts on agriculture and  frmt-growiug. wklle entertainments,  band competitions, taking place during the nine big days and nine big  nlghtfi of the Show, will make up an  Interesting educational and entertaining programme. 4 'V,  Canada's Opportunity  That the Land and Apple Show will  be national in scope and/purpose Is  shown by extracts taken ��������� from one of  the booklets Issued bjj" tbe management Jn which It gives the following  reasons why:   '.-.'  Because in the first pluce Canada  has never bad an all-Canadian Exhibition of, the products of the farms of  the Dominion big enough and broad  enough to fit the greatness of the  country. Second, the holding ,of  Canada's Land and Apple Show will  demonstrate what Canada baa done  and is capable of doing, thus adding  new strength and energy to every  Canadian. And again, as it Is pointed  out, a definite invitation, at a definite  date, inviting people to see tor themselves what Canadian farms can produce, will surely bring big results to  exhibitors. Further, tbe Canada Land  and Apple. Show will bring together  what products Canada has to show,  whicb win be put into a space where  tbey will be presented ln the best possible way. From a business standpoint the Prairie Provinces is the  greatest market the fruit-growers of  the older provinces have, and by its  development lt will advance the trade  and commerce of all Canada. It is  also certain that the Canada Land and  Apple Show wiir*3reete and open up a  home market for 9 great variety of  our farm products that are now being  imported into the Canadian Watt  Rules and Regulations  The regulations and conditions set  forth in the official folder Issued calls  for the occupation of eboet 25,000  square feet of floor space, the total  cost being subdivided pro-rata among  governments, railways, boards of trade  and other exhibitors, and in the case  of governments and railways doea not  exceed fifty'cents per square foot and  that of boards of trade ahd agricultural societies twenty-five cepU per  square foot. Exhibits of governments,  railways, boards of trade and agricultural societies remain the property of  the exhibitors after the Show, while on  the other hand growers competing for  the big cash prizes must comply with  the rules and regulations in which it  is intended that the Canada Land and  Apple Show pay all freight to Winnipeg on all exhibits for, competition,  arranging same in space provided  free of cost to the grower, and for  which the exhibitor assigns to the  Canada Land ahd Apple Show their  exhibit the proceeds for sale of which  i-i to go to the general prise and expense fund of the Show.  Will Historylfepeat Itself  Elko, B. C���������As a result of the extensive railway development that has  been going forward ta southern British  Columbia-during the past few months,  the strategic position held by the  Columbia-Kootenay valley, Including  the most extensive area of agricultural, horticultural and mineral territory in the Kootenay district has now  presented itself in a new light to  homeseekers and investors. This circumstance ' has become especially  patent In and around Elko, wtiere extensive tracts particularly adapted to  fruit-growing are being rapidly taken  up and put under cultivation. These  fruit lands produce, abundant yields of  apples, pears, plums, prunes, cherries,  and small fruits of a superior quality  aa to color and'flavor, and commanding  highest prices ln the prairie markets.  Local growers express the view that  the development noted Is merely ln  its infancy, citing comparative statistics from older settled regions. It  appears,, for instance, that the area  now. being opened up for development  contains two-thirds more cultivable  land, and Immeasurably more Umber  and pasture land than the Republic ot.  Switzerland; and that besides being  peculiarly; adapted to fruit culture, lt  possesses a wealth of minerals that  is wholly lacking In the. Swiss Republic, which nevertheless supports m  population of 8,700,000, (and produces  annually an enormous output of live  stock, dairy products, grains and  fruits; while revenue from tourists  and transients amount to $110,000,000  yearly. That the transformation of  the Columbia-Kootenay country tato a  region of cultivated lands snd developed mines, served1 by adequate trans*  imitation facilities, will necessarily  serve to emphasise   the comparison  suggested, and in the. way most favorable to the newer country, Is the conclusion arrived at by experienced  observers.
