 ones Fairmont  1140  ertistaf Kates  Published in the Interests of Vancouver and the Western People  m.  VOLUME V.  H. H. STEVENS, M.P., Editor-in-chief.  VANCOUVER, British Columbia, OCTOBER 17, 1913  No. 23  Earl Grey Approves of  Against Home Rule  Borden Administration Popular-Conservative Wins Great Victory in Chateauguay, for Sixty Years Liberal  Local Member to Urge Better Usury Law for British Columbia  ENTHUSIASTIC GATHERING  OF LOCAL CONSERVATIVES  Hundreds Unable to Enter the Hall.  Usury Under the Search-Light.  By Alex.  The "Ward One Conservative Association meeting held in Carleton Hall, Collinwood West, on  Monday evening of this week was a striking  demonstration of the popularity of the speakers  and of the interest attached to politics. Hundreds of eager citizens could not find access to  the hall which was simply jammed.  The speakers were Messrs. A. H. B. MacGowan,  J. D. Taylor, H. H. Watson, M.P.P., R. S. Pyke,  president of the Vancouver Conservative Association, and H. H. Stevens, M.P.  The speaking was remarkably fitting and spicy.  Among several questions of vital interest Uaury  was handled with good taBte and in vigorous  terms by Vancouver's member, H. H. Stevens.  Of his speech the Vancouver World has the  following to say in Tuesday's issue:  "Mr. H. H. Stevens touched a question of extreme importance to the business life of the  people, when, speaking at a meeting of Ward  One Conservative Association^:\a%:Carleton Hall,  Collingwood West, last evening^ fc^Sfid $here  were two pieces of legislation which he intended  to push at Ottawa this session, one of which was  the rates of interest charged by iraouey lenders.  Many cases of this sort in which men had heen  mercilessly victimized^; Jiad h$*_n brought under  his "notice, he said. ^e^expUiniecithaf Sie law as  it stands prohibits the charging bf more than  twelve per cent, interest on loans of less than  $500; but he knew of cases in which interest as  high as 240 per cent, had been charged, and  cases in which one hundred per cent, was charged  were numerous. This, he urged with much reason, was a condition of affairs that ought to be  remedied.  "It is not too much to say that until the system  of currency and the law as it applies to loans are  changed, the present form of civilization will not  reach its highest stage of development. Take the  system of credit, for example. The question ls  not one which may be hastily pronounced on; but  it is an anomaly that with a country possessed  of natural resources so extensive and so valuable  as this, the Government has to go to foreign  countries for loans, while the currency within the  country, on which business men are required to  pay interest if they would obtain the use of it,  is in the hands of a few. When it comes to the  money lenders, the case is much worse. 'Any  community,' declared Mr. Stevens, 'that the money  shark gets his clutches on soon goes to the wall,  and it is better that a man should go to the wall  at once than that he be sucked of his life blood by  these money leeches. They are many business  men and lawyers who are guilty of these exorbitant charges,' he continued, 'and I propose to  secure the passage of a law that will prevent  their operations. If possible, I will make it a  criminal offense to charge more than 12 per cent.'  'The question is one that,strikes at the roots of  social wellbeing, and in seeking the means of repressing the practices of which he spoke, the  Dominion member for the city will have the approval and support of every enlightened and  patriotic citizen."  IMPERIAL UNION BV DISINTEGRATION  The Home Rule in Ireland agitation is a striking  illustration of how some would '' unite by separation." It is Sir Wilfred Laurier's policy for Canada. He would keep Canada in the Empire by  repudiating ALL IMPERIAL RESPONSIBILITY.  Home Rulers would promote unity in Great  Britain by giving Ireland her own customs tariff,  her own postage, in fact, complete control of these  large national matters as well as the smaller local  affairs.  Let Canadian supporters of Home Rule study  the bill more and talk less on the vague and abstract principle of Home Rule.  As at present drafted, this bill spells "IMPERIAL DISINTEGRATION" as does Sir Wilfred s ������' NAVAL POLICY.''  PACIFIC SHIPPING VIA PANAMA.  We are informed on excellent authority that  certain German shipping companies are booking  up passage to the Pacific Coast via Panama, for  four years ahead of date of sailing. We are told  this is being done on the installment plan. Poor  people are thus enabled by laying aside a few  cents each week, to purchase a fare to this Coast.  The significent feature of this procedure is that  it demonstrates the confidence of these big companies in our Pacific Coast and also in the Panama  route.  Earl Grey on|Home  Home Rule Means Disunion  Earl Grey, former Governor--3#neral of Canada  The gifted'' -fii^^fkipvilar^ ���������-J8_W--���������h^jrf- &ra^*v 0ove_&or-(fc^^  replying to his Canadian critics for his hearty approval of Sir JSdwiard Carson's  campaign against the JJoroe Bule Bill, says:  "It is, I believe, the general opinion of the Canadian people that the ministerial  measure confers upon the Irish the same powers of local self-government as they  enjoy.   That they should hold this opinion is only natural.  ������qua|, Not Ore*, ter Powers t  "When Mr. T. P. O'Connor was in Ottawa in 1910 he conveyed the impression  that the policy of Mr. Asquith and Mr. Redmond was to give to the Irish equal but  not greater powers of local self-government than those enjoyeel by the nine provinces of the dominion. If this had been the subject and effect of the ministerial  measure of Home Rule it would have found me an enthusiastic supporter.  A Practical Test for Thinkers  What would be said in Canada if the Canadian Government proposed to apply  the principles of the present Home Rule Bill to the provinces of either Nova Scotia  or New Brunswick. The combined population of these provinces is much smaller  than those of the four northeast counties of Ulster.  Managed Against Will  What would be said by the people of Nova Scotia and New Brunswick if they  were to be told that their local affairs were to be managed for them against their  will by the electors of the province of Quebec, and that the government of Quebec  Would be able to regulate their customs and to fix the design upon their postage  stamps.  Should be Settled on Federal Lines  The great mistake the present government is committing,'' continued Earl  Grey, "is in attempting to settle the question, not on Federal lines, but on a Nationalist basis, which will inevitably lead to disunion."  MINE DISASTER  The fearful disaster in the Universal Colliery  near Cardiff, Wales, demonstrates the awful risks  under which the coal miner daily operates. It is  reported that 400 souls were sent to eternity with  scarcely a moment's warning. Four hundred  homes mourn the loss of some loved one.  We have been called upon all too frequently to  record these heart-rending incidents, in fact so  common are they that they have become "only  incidents" in our lives.  Are the public aware that it was because a eoal-  miner, a member of the fire committee, at Cumberland, reported dangerous gas in the mine that he  was turned out of his job? Does the Provincial  Government not know that this miner's report  was corroborated by the Provincial mine inspector? Do the public know or realize that the discharge of this man is the real cause of the strike  on the Island? Are they aware what it means  to daily face death in this horrible manner?  Is it any wonder that the men fight for a vital  principle���������viz.: Safety in the mine.  What a terrible responsibility rests upon those  who administer the laws, and also on those who  frame them ?  Four hundred lives snuffed out in the twinkling  of an eye! Why? Faulty ventilation, imperfect  protection. Let the people of British Columbia  beware lest they are now aiding, by their sympathetic support, mercenary owners "to reap larger  dividends at the expense of human lives.  SOUTH VANCOUVER INCORPORATION  Once again the agitation to incorporate South  Vancouver as a city is the chief topic of conversation in and around the municipality.  The advocates of annexation to the city have  given up all hope of persuading the Provincial  Oovernment to amend the Act so as to make it  possible for annexation to become a fact, and  now the sponsors of "Incorporation" are again  to the fore.  One thing is certain and that is the municipal  clauses act as it now stands is not suitable or wide  .nough in its scope for a community like South  Vancouver.  Something must be done.   What shall it be?  There is a splendid opportunity of designing a  model charter for this important "city-to-be." It  might incorporate some of the admirable features  of such cities as Glasgow. It should avoid many  of the evils whieh have crept into most of the  Canadian cities.  Then what about the name? You can hardly  call it "South Vancouver." The young city  should have a name suitable to its position as the  third city of British Columbia if not, indeed, the  second city. Here is a splendid opportunity for  our wise ones to exercise their skill.  BEEF SHORTAGE.  Wholesale butchers are assiduously circulating  dire reports regarding the shortage of beef.  Well we all know what it means���������simply that they  desire to prepare us for another 20 per cent, raise  in priee.  When Earth's Last Picture  Is Painted  When Earth's last picture is painted, and the  tubes are all twisted and dried;  When the oldest color has faded, and the youngest critic has died 1  We shall rest and faith, we shall need it���������lie down  for an eon or two,  Till the Master of all good workmen shall set us  to work anew.  And those that were good shall be happy; they  shall sit in a golden chair;  They shall splash at a ten-league canvas with  brushes of comet's hair;  They shall find real saints to draw from���������Magdalene, Peter and Paul;  They shall work for an age at a sitting and never  be tired at all.  And only the Master shall praise us, and only the  Master ahall blame;  And no one shall work for money, and no one  shall work for fame;  But each for the joy of the working, and each in  his separate star,  Shall dra# t$|e '1$tf������JK as he sees it for the Ood  of Things as tney are.  ���������Rudyard Kipling.  -M  wmwmwmr  "BOJtPEN WWI FROM UHWqB*"  By Prof. E. Odium, M.A., B.Sc.  Such are some of the headings to be seen in  the Conservative organs since the victory of the  Conservative, Mr. James Morris, over the Hon.  Sydney Fisher. And they have good reason to  call it a "great victory." This contest was  fought out mainly on two lines, of a clearly  national character, viz., the Borden Naval Bill  and Reciprocity. .What I wish to get at is the  following speech as reported in the press. It  shows the true stand of Sir Wilfrid at the present  moment, and just where he, the Hon. Fisher, and  the Liberal party fell down.  Let me quote the ex-Premier's words: "Let  them talk about their $35,000,000 for the defence  of the Empire, but I maintain that Canada, with  her growing importance, NEEDS A NATIONAL  NAVY. There is no country in the world with a  population of seven or eight millions and a coast  line which has no navy. WHY THEN SHOULD  NOT WE?"  This is a most remarkable speech. No wonder  the Hon. Fisher and Sir Wilfrid went down in  the contest. The people answered their conviction.*? by their votes. They told him, in effect, that  they knew he was not saying the thing that is.  He boasts of "never deceiving any one" in his  political career. What is the above statement but  an attempt at misrepresentation? He says  Canada has no navy. That is not true. Canada  has the entire British Navy, and every honest  man knows this to be so. Hence his electors  threw him down hard at the election.  He asks: "Why should not we have a navy?"  And he knows we have. Canada is as much a  part of the Empire as is England. And the navy  is the biggest and best in the world. Now let me  attack this political word-juggler from another  standpoint. Sir Wilfrid was in power a good  many years, long enough to tire the Canadian  electorate. During all that time what did he do  to build the navy? He now is of opinion that  Canada has no navy. Why did he not build one.  or do something towards such a patriotic course  of action? Perhaps he would say he did get the  Rainbow and the other little make-believe. These  two little, useless things are the true index of Sir  Wilfrid's ideal of a Canadian navy. No wonder  his French-Canadians threw him a.nd his lieutenant down with a thud.  The French are beginning to tire of imposture  and misrepresentation. They want facts and an  honest, open policy. They aim at straight  Nationalism outside the Empire, as per Bourassa;  or they aim at being true citizens of that Empire,  as per the Chateauguay vote last week. But to  pose as Britons and loyalists to Great Britain, and  at the same time performing the acts of those who  would not aid the Empire to the value of one  little, well-manned ship, is too much for the intelligent voters, and hence they pitched out into  the shades the non. Fisher and his master.  Now one more word before closing. If the  Liberals of British Columbia ever hope to gain  (Continued Page 5) -'tt't)t^i.rnvw*n * ���������^oT'������inww;tmip������(������HaTti'..*  vji-ni_i.'_it^atn_u/^a'  ty i ! iSte K-ot������_ Wti_tf*. n wttK>w< 4 4m*.'. ti mvs tin <m.-*u'. _  '7  2  THE WESTERN CALL.

Harrison on-Thursday. This  was the first parlor meeting of the  season, and ther were an unusually  large number present. Among those  who spoke on this occasion was Mrs.  G. H. Smith, who related her experience in the work in former years.  The work of the winter with reference to the Children's Aid was  planned out, and it was resolved to  devote one afternoon per month to  work for this aid. ...... sir -,_,.,.  ��������� ���������   ���������  The young men of the Grandview  Methodist church met on Thursday  evening for the purpose of forming a  club. Plans were talked over and it  was resolved to meet on Wednesday,  evening, October 22nd, for the purpose of electing officers. These  boys plan to have a reading room and  means for social entertainment within doors, and they are also making  provision for sports in the future,  such as football, tennis and other  games. All those wishing to join  may obtain information by inquiring  of Mr. Arthur Clark, 906 Commercial  drive.  ��������� ���������   ���������  Following the formal opening of  the True Blue Orphanage, 818 Milton  street, New Westminster, which took  place on the 25th ult. a series of  evening entertainments will be given  by the local lodges to help along with  the work. The orphanage, which is a  Provincial institution, under the  auspices of the Loyal True Blue Association, began work the first of  May, anVl about 22 children have been  cared for. There are 14 orphans,  varying in age from 4 weeks to 5  years, in the institution at present.  Mrs. McLeod is the matron. The  special work of the women of the  True Blue Association is the care of  children. A "Tag Day" was held on  the 12th of July, byi means of which  a reasonable sum was obtained. One  of the entertanments given recently  was that in Carson Lodge, No. 217,  Loyal True Blue, Grandview, where  an enjoyable evening was spent with  an excellent programme.  The necessity of a paved street  running through from Grandview to  the city was demonstrated at a meeting of the Ratepayers' Association on  Thursday evening. The street under  discussion was Venables and the immediate course it should follow to  Campbell avenue was a matter of  hot discussion. Alderman Evans  advocated the acquisition of a sixteen-foot strip of land on the south  side of Venables street from Glenn  drive to Campbell avenue, for the  purpose of creating Venables street  at that point a clear sixty-six-foot  thoroughfare.  Alderman Evans, advocating the  plained that the B. C. Electric were  giving sixteen feet off eleven lots,  and would give a perpetual right-of-  way over their tracks from Glenn  drive to Campbell avenue in exchange  for a thirty-three-foot strip at the  small end of Prior street. It was also  proposed to acquire a sixteen-foot  strip from other property owners at  that point. The B. C. Electric proposed building immense car repair  shops on Prior street, and .also to  place a double track along Prior  street to Main street, but how. soon  they could not say.  Alderman MeSpadden took the op  posite view to Alderman Evans. "All  we get from the B. C. Electric is an  easement," argued MrV MeSpadden,  If they spent the money that was proposed they would only benefit the B.  C. Electric to the extent of $50,000.  "I am fighting the B. C. Electric," he  declared, "and I'm going to fight  them all through." An alternative  scheme of more value to the city, he  thought, would be to open up Prior  street through to Venables street by  taking off the corner of Venables  and Raymur. They would then have  a though street from Main street to  Venables, thus giving a traversible  road from the city to Grandview di  rect.  Among those who took the view  of Alderman Evans were Mr. Wm  Astley, Mr. Charles Smith, Mr. Maxwell Smith and Mr. Charles . Reid,  while ex-Alderman King sided with  Alderman MeSpadden.  The absence of any definite information as to the probable cost of  the proposed undertaking led to an  adjournment before the vote of the  ratepayers be taken.  A special meeting is called for  Thursday evening, the 23rd inst., to  further consider the matter.  mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmw  ttU-mMH . MM. MM .t-rt ���������WWM ������*tt.

It was only last year that the  School Board decided to take over  their High school work, which had  been previously carried on in the  City schools, and they made provision for a preliminary course in their  own locality at Cedar Cottage, where  they established two rooms with two  teachers. There were about 52 names  enrolled. All of these who continued  with the work graded into the second  year. This year the High school is  accommodated in the new Gordon  school, situated on the Ferris road.  Here the full course is provided for  and is carried on by six teachers.  Nearly 200 pupils attend. A site for  the erection of a High school was  purchased some time ago.  At the next regular meeting the Victorian Order of Nurses expect to have  Miss McKenzie, of Ottawa, the general superintendent, present. The  meeting will probably be held in the  nurses' home on Chester street and  Forty-seventh avenue. This organization held their first annual meeting  in August, and the following officers  were elected: Mrs. T. Dickie, president; Mrs. J. Muliett and Mrs. J.  Esselmont, vice-presidents; Mrs.  Young, corresponding secretary; Mrs.  McDonald, secretary, and Mrs.  Prowse, treasurer. The society was  formed a little over a year ago by  Mrs. J. Macaulay, who is the honorary president. Guaranteed by the  South Vancouver council, two nurses,  Miss Tower and Miss Pay, were immediately engaged and a home rented.  The council has been generous to this  worthy object, and granted $950 for  the remainder of the year 1912, the  date of the formation of the society,  and for the year 1913 their grant was  $1,500. Excellent work has been accomplished. The home.was furnished  by'donaHons^ih-bm business firms and  private parties, consisting of both  furniture and money. The society  plan to hold a social evening in the  near future.  .���������iiiuinii i-m; mini iii ������*hh * hi t I'M i������i m tit 1 tp  Use Stave lake Power  t  i  Those Industries are Better  In ultimate results which use our electric  power service.

All Canada's modern development-  Confederation, the great railways, the  growth ot the West, most great machines���������have come in the last fifty  years.  The seedlings of that day are scarcely more than tie timber now.  Fifty years ls a very short time in  the life ot a forest. Most ot the timber  being cut in British Columbia today is  over two hundred years old���������some of  it is over eight hundred.

Plant up the waste places.  Plant the needed shelter belts.  These take time, they take men, they  take money, but they are worth it.  France has spent 935,000,000 in plant  ing trees on watersheds.  Germany spends up to $ 13 per acre  per annum on some forests, and gets  gross returns up to $24 per acre, thus  yielding net profits up to $11 per acre  every year.  As a whole, German forests produce  about $2.00 net per acre annually.  Canada spends much less than one  cent per acre per annum on the forest  lands under management.  If we set the fire loss against the  timber product, Canada's forest balance sheet shows an enormous deficit.  How can Canadians stop the losses,  arrest the waste?  There is but one answer.  Public opinion, public interest, public conscience are the only forces that  iwlll ever make for progress.  JFarrell Came at the Head of Fifty  Men, Well Armed, and I Had a  Word With Him.  and the treachery is his. You'll learS  (that, if you wait long enough. Mortimer is either dead, or in Fagin'a hands.  [Goodnight"  ���������   I passed out. and was beyond the  (guard, hefore he could call me, even  [bad he desired to do so.   I had no  jwlsh to talk with him longer.   I felt  ���������disappointed, sick at heart, and real*  Hied this  staff officer waa  strongly  prejudiced against young Mortimer. It  peemed to me I saw a little light, al*  [though not much.   Eric had been at  (Elmhurst, and Claire was not innocent  of his presence in that neighborhood.  (She was shielding him, and it was  [through her help that his first report  to Lee had been sent hack hy tbe In*  t'dian.   Then Eric must have been in  jthe bouse while I was there.   Indeed  k% must have been Eric who made me  prisoner.   And to protect bim   she  [had told me a deliberate falsehood.  j  As I rode back through tbe night,  'finding a  path almost  hy Instinct  through the maze of military encampments, I thought of all these things,  exonerating her from wrong, and yet  wondering more and more at her real  connection with the various events.  Tbe chief bad not stated what Information of value Grant had promised  to reveal; nor what Brio's first report  had contained.   In my sudden disappointment I bad forgotten to inquire.  And where could tbe boy be?   What  could bave happened to him?   Something serious surely to keep blm thui  bidden for nearly a month.   Clair*  would know, but she was probably  long ago back ln Philadelphia in th.  heart of the British garrison.   And I-  Well, I was tied hand and foot by discipline; helpless to turn aside from  duty now in the face of this new campaign.    Every man was needed, and  no personal consideration would ex  cuse my leaving the ranks even for s  day.   It was with heavy heart I rode  Into tbe camp of my regiment, and lay  down on the bare ground, with head  pillowed upon the saddle, knowing tbe  drums would sound ln a few  hours.  It was hard to work through tbe  routine of tbe nest few days, although  some excitement was given ns of  Maxwell's brigade by scouting details  sent across tbe valley to observe the)  movements of the British patrols. On  snob duty I passed the greater portion  of two days In tbe saddle, and, by  chance, met both Farrell and Duval,  who were with the Jersey militiamen,  now rapidly coming in to aid us, as  the rumors of an impending battle  spread across country. Farrell came  at tbe bead of fifty men, rough looking, raggedly dressed fellows, but well  armed, and I had a word with him  while pointing out where Dickinson'*  troops were camped. Unfortunately  (he knew Uttle of value to me. Mor-  j timer's column of Queen's Rangers  had passed his place on their return  jto Philadelphia two days after my es-  Icape. Grant waB not with them, but  \ Claire was, while Peter had been left  J behind at Elmhurst. Fagin had not  ibeen overtaken, although the Rangers  'had engaged in a skirmish with some  ���������of bis followers, losing two men.  (Colonel Mortimer had been wounded  j slightly. As to Eric he knew nothing  !���������no one had even mentioned the lad's  !name.  | It was thus clearly evident I could  'do nothing, although I now possessed  !a well defined theory of Just what had  ���������occurred. To my mind Eric was in  ithe hands of Fagin, eitber hidden se-  icurely away among the sand caves for  iaome purpose connected with Grant's  Forcing Clinton to Battle.  I was left behind at Coryell's Ferry,  for the purpose of hastening forward  any supplementary orders from Washington, when Maxwell, and the Jersey  [militiamen, pressed forward in an effort to retard the march of tbe enemy.  From the reports of scouts we began  to understand what waa occurring.  ^Before dawn on the eighteenth of June  the British army began leaving tbe  city, crossing the Delaware at Gloucester point, and by evening the motley  host, comprising Regulars, Hessians,  ���������loyalists, and a swarm of camp fol*  lowers, were halted near Haddenfield,  five miles southeast of Camden.  > Tbe moment this knowledge reached  ^Washington, he acted. In spite of opposition from some of bis leading officers, his own purpose remained stead*  [fact, and every preparation had already been carefully made for ener*  igetio pursuit. Our troops fit tor oerv-  itce numbered less than five thousand  men, many of these hastily gathered  jnllitla, some of whom bad never been  under fire, but tbe warmth and com*  ���������fort of the summer time, together  Witb tbe good news from France, bad  {inspired all with fresh courage. Whatever of dissension existed was only  among the coterie of general.officers,  the men in the ranks being eager tor  battle, even though tbe odds were  .strong against us. There was no delay, no bitch in the promptness of ad*  jvance. The department of tbe Quartermaster-General bad every plan  worked out in detail, and, within two  days, tbe entire army bad crossed tbe  river, and pushed forward to within a  few miles of Trenton. Morgan, witb  six hundred men, was hurried forward  to the reinforcement ot Maxwell, and,  relieved from my duties at tbe terry,  I was permitted to Join his column.  I know not when, during all my  army life, I was more deeply Im*  pressed with the awful solemnity ot  war, than as I watched these volunteer soldiers land on the Jersey shore,  and tramp away through the dust. In  those ranks were sick and wounded  scarcely able to keep up; occasionally  one would crawl aside but the moment  he was able would join some new body,  and resume the march.  | Tbey were animated by a stern pur-  short i pose which yielded power. Such as  these were not to be trifled witb. Others might scoff at their raggedness of  line, their carelessness of discipline,  their nondescript garments, and variety of equipment, but to one who had  seen such in battle���������who bad been  with them at Trenton, Brandywine,  and Germantown���������they were warriors  not to be despised, stern, grim fighters, able to bold their own against  England's best drilled battalions. I  watched them file past���������Wayne's, Var-  num's, Scott's brigades, and Jackson's  anil Grayson's regiments���������marking  tbe brown, dust-caked faces, the eager  eyes, the sturdy, tireless tread, the  well oiled muskets. Boys, men, gray-  beards, all alike exhibited in their  faces the same expression. They were  anticipating battle against a hated foe,  and counted hardship as nothing compared with the Joy of conflict.   Every  standing tn the glow of a Ore. anl  there arose from the lips of onr men  a sudden, involuntary cheer, breaking  strangely upon tbe solemn silence of  the night The group about htm were  startled and looked about, and he  paused a moment shading his eyes.  "What troops are these?" he naked,  his voice cutting across the distance.  A hundred answered him:  "Morgan's'riflemen!"  "Good, my lads 1" and even at that  Stance I could see bis face brighten.  "There will be work for yon at dawn."  With a rolling cheer, echoing down  oj0f ranks from front to rear, we answered, swinging tbe guns, over bur  beads, as we swept forward Into the  .dark night There might be discus*  sion, dissension about that council flre.  but tbere was none fn tbe heart* of  those wbo were going ont to die. Al*  iresdy rumors were flying about re-  (girding Lee's unwillingness to engage  fin battle. I saw bim aa I trudged  (past, standing beside Wayne, the Are*  illght on bis face, although bis bead  was bowed. Even-to oar cheers be  never once glanced np, snd, ss we  {passed beyond tbe radius >pf light, I  Hatd my hand upon tbe mane of Morten's horse.  ; Is lt true that Charles Lss thinks  we should let Clinton go without fighting?" I asked soberly. "Tbst wss ra*  mored at the ferry."  "Tis enough," be answered, bis  ayes upon the dark column of-*plod*  -ding auk. "And he seems to have  pothers wltb him. I know not wbat has  Sut the coward into the fellows of  . ite. 8atnt Andrew! the odds sre no  igreater than we have met before.

By daylight we came up witb the  New Jersey militia, lying at rest along  the bank of the Millstone river, wait*  Ing their turn to ford that stream, snd  Join Maxwell on tbe opposite shore.  iProm where I stood I could see the  thin lines of. Continentals spreading  out like a fan, ss the sklnnishers advanced up the opposite bluffs.  Down  the trampled bank, men were struggling with a light battery, snd suddenly In the press of flgures I csme upon  Farrell.   De was mud from bead to  foot, bis face streaked wltb It, but he  'looked up with beaming eyes as I  spoke   bis   name,  and  our   bands  clasped.   "I thought you would be over there  witb Maxwell," he said, pointing  across at the black dots, now clearly  distinguishable in tbe glow of sun*  shine.  "I was left behind, and came up Just  now with Morgan," I replied. "But I  am anxious enough to be with my owa  fellows. What means that skirmish  line, Farrell? Are we already In touch  with Clinton?"  He swept the hair out of his eyes  'with his great fist  "No one knows exactly, but the Brit*  ish are not far. off, and are headed this  way.   A scout came through witb the  news two hours ago���������Clinton baa taken   the   road  to  Monmouth."     He  chuckled grimly, glancing at my face.  "And who think ye the lad was who  told us?"  "Who?" my throat tightening;  "The same you was so anxious about  a few days back."  "Mortimer!   Eric Mortimer?"  "Aye, unless my eyes fall me s>  ready, it was tbe boy."  "Tou are sure?   You saw blm?"  "Well, I had a glimpse, as he* csme  up the bank here from the ford, his  horse dripping.  It was dark still, and  step brought them" closer to the  grapple of arms���������to that supreme test  of strength, courage, endurance, for  which they had left their homes. They  might be poorly drilled, ill-dressed,;  variously armed, yet these were fighting men.  It was midnight when Morgan led us  up the steep bluff, and out upon the  sandy road. We advanced silently,  and ln straggling column through the  darkness, passing the embers of  camp fires for several miles, the recumbent soldiery of other commands  Bleeping oil the ground. At Hopewell,  Washington was holding another council with his officers. As we swung  oast we could perceive his tall figure  "He Went by Me, Digging Hla Horst  With Hla 8purs and Lying Close."  he only stopped to ask the road. I  knew the voice, and the form���������the lad  is as slender as a girl���������then he went  by me, digging his horse with the*  spurs, and lying close. He had a Dragoon's cape flapping from bis shoulders, but 'twas the boy all right Ah!  there go the guns up the bank. Now,  perhaps, they'll let me take my fighting dogs across."  The way was open for me, at least,  and I swung up Into the sadfie. and  drove my horse down the at >ery  shore into the water. The stream  was not deep, although the current  flowed swiftly, and a moment later I  had found Maxwell.  'Tes," be said to my first question,  "we are going to fight, although it  may not be anything more serious  than skirmishing today.

Therefore in Canada. Let me inform all who  would read the hearts of Canadians. It is this:  they are loyal to the Empire first, and to all else  second. Thfe Empire is greater than its part. So  the Dominion is greater than any province. And  in turn any single province is greater than the  biggest city therein.   This is fundamental.  The man who would sacrifice the Empire for  the part thereof lacks true insight, and fails to  grasp the spirit of Canadians and the voters  therein.  H. H. Stevens, M.P., on the Platform  I listened with intense pleasure the other evening to Mr. Stevens handling the Borden Naval  policy. And at no time to the present from the  very beginning of the public discussion which  took place while the Liberals were in power, have  I heard so definite, clear-cut, comprehensive and  apt putting of the question.  In short, the chief line of argument was this:  "As a city needs police, so does a province, a  nation an empire. Just as the city police must  stand to represent the civic corporation against  unruly citizens within the corporation, or those  from without who might make any sort of attack  upon private property or pf the person, so it is  with the provincial, the national, and the Empire  police.  The best Empire police, outside of those  appointed to deal between the units of the Empire  and the Empire itself, aire necessarily the ships,  when that Empire is primarily insular, as is the  case with Britain.  An international police must be had for international safety, as surely as any other kind of  police. In the case of "Britannia Major," ships  represent her best and most effective protectors.  And hence, it is necessary for all the dominions  under her flag, who are protected thereby and  thereunder, to do their, duty as patriots, as fair-  minded men, and as parts of the interested and  threatened whole. This is a sane putting of the  whole matter, and Mr. H. H. Stevens is doing  good work in placing his views on this and other  topics before the electors of Buprard.  Hie Anglo-Israel Association  This association will meet in the Orange Hall,  on Gore Avenue and Hastings Street, Saturday  evening of this week at 8 o'clock, on the upper  floor. All who would like to be present are  heartily invited to attend.     ���������������������������.-���������.,  The members of this association take the  promises of God to be. true, and made to be kept  to the letter. Look at this one for instance: "And  I will give unto thee, arid to thy seed after thee,  the land wherein thou art a stranger, all the land  of Canaan, for AN EVERLASTING POSSESSION."  This is easily understood. It does not mean a  spiritual, an abstract, a mythical land, but a real  land of soil, mountains, rocks, valleys, rivers,  lakes, and boundless wealth. Now let us look a  little further. Read this promise: "In the same  day the Lord made a COVENANT with Abraham,  saying, 'UNTO THY SEED HAVE I GIVEN  THIS LAND, from the River of Egypt unto the  Great River, the Euphrates." New we shall read  another scripture and draw a conclusion or two:  "By myself I have sworn, saith the Lord, BECAUSE THOU HAST DONE THIS THING *. .  in blessing I will bless thee and in multiplying I  will multiply thy seed as the stars of heaven, and  as the sand which is upon the sea shore; and thy  SEED SHALL POSSESS THE GATE OF HIS  ENEMIES: and in thy seed shall all the nations  of the earth be blessed: BECAUSE THOU HAST  OBEYED MY VOICE."  From the above we see the gift was for an  "everlasting possession." It was a gift not based  on some condition, but because Abraham had  obeyed: and it was a gift, not to be made in the  future. The words are: "Unto thy seed HAVE  I given this land." And "this land" includes all  the territory from the Nile to the Euphrates. A  mighty region of nearly 2,500,000 square miles.  Therefore that land cannot be possessed by Germany, or Russia, or Italy, or Britain, unless  through the "seed of Abraham."  But we learn from other scripture that the final  arrangement of the gift was of such a character  that in the end it is to be owned and occupied by  Abraham'8 seed through Isaac, Jacob, and the  twelve Patriarchs, of whom Joseph is supreme,  and the Hegemonic leader.  Anglo-Israelites say: Find us Israel and we  shall show the eventual possessor and occupier of  the above heritage. And we say more still. ^Te  take the ground that Anglo-Saxondom is Israel.  And we do not mix up the Jews with Israel either.  They are but one-twelfth of the whole of Israel,  and will in the end own one-twelfth of the land  above described. But the balance of Israel will  have the eleven-twelfths. This much is said to  show the public that we take and stand upon the  solid ground of God's Holy Word. Hence we  gladly invite all who will, to come and study this  glorious old Book with us. And we study history,  ethnology, philology, traditions, and the current  events of internationalism as well, and think we  see clearly how the promises are working out  according to the enunciated Divine Plan permeating humanity down through the ages.  Ostrich Act in the Realm of Politics  It is amusing to hear some of the good Conservatives talk as if-they had the city of Vancouver  as well as the province tied down in safety for the  next election, and for practically all time to come.  In this they err, not having the truth, the whole  truth and nothing but the truth to hand.  If they go to work as honestly and as vigorously  as the best of the Liberals are doing, and doing  in the mass, then they may have a cinch in hand  for the next contest. But they may make up their  minds that there will not be any walk-overs permitted as in the past. No, no, my good Conservative friends. You need to get to work and show  that your ideals are enlarging and modifying, to  fit the necessities of the present and coming times  ���������coming, and near at hand.  There must be inaugurated a broad, wise, and  humane legislation, much beyond anything  attempted in the past.  I do not suggest that the Conservatives are, or  have been, behind the Liberals in legislative  ability or pre-vision, but I do say that there is a  most positive demand abroad for such changes  and legislative aets as will give to the whole  people the best that can be provided by legislation and by executive ability. The feeling has  crept up from the ordinary wage-earner to the  ordinary, everyday business man that changes  need to come quickly in many directions, and in  none more than where the monopolists have the  power to grind in the matter of wages, in the  matter of hours of work, in the matter of interest  paid on small or large loans, in the matter of  various public utilities, and in the matter of the  franchise. Perhaps both expansion and retraction  in relation to the last named would be in good  order. Let Conservatives see clearly the facts,  and not go forward blindly to doom.  Vancouver a Mighty and  Far-Reaching Magnet  Who among the reading public of Eastern  Canada has not felt the magnetic pull of the city  of Vancouver? At every turn, in every village,  town and city of Central and Eastern Canada one  is met by multitudinous questions concerning the  climate, location, scenery, advantages, and opportunities of this young urban marvel. Among  those who have come of late is one of the most  noted muscians of Ontario, Mrs. McHardy-Smith,  of Clinton and Toronto.  Mrs. McHardy-Smith has just come from  France, Germany, Italy, and London, where she  has been giving special attention to her splendid  musical attainments.  Before going abroad, this famous painiste had  made a reputation which reached beyond the  bounds of Canada. In addition to being a first-  class teacher of the young beginners, and those  who have made considerable headway as  amateurs, Mrs. McHardy Smith made a specialty  of teaching teachers, who found in her just such  an artiste as they required to give them the more  important training they found necessary for their  advanced pupils.  This bright, efficient, popular, and high-class  musician has come to Vancouver to make it her  home. Any one wishing to consult with her can  do so by calling at Suite 501 in the "Washington  House," on the corner of Nelson and Thurlow  streets.   Phone Seymour 3939 L.  ���������Prof. E.

This system of co-operative credit was introduced into the Province of Quebec in December,  1900, when 'La Caisse Populaire de Levis' began  business. Its introduction was brought about by  Mr. Alphonse Desjardins who, having studied the  co-operative credit system in Germany, France,  Holland and Denmark, became convinced that the  establishment of such societies in Canada would  be highly beneficial.  As there was no law providing for the establishment of these institutions, La Caisse remained  a purely voluntary institution for the first six  years of its existence, during which time only two  other societies were organized. Largely through  the efforts of Mr. Desjardins. the Quebec Syndicates Act was passed in 1906. It is described as  'an act to regularize the formation of co-operative  societies among the laboring classes of the province going into force on the day  of its sanction. It provided for the formation of  production, consumption and credit associations  of a co-operative character at any place in the  province, the territory within which an association is empowered to operate being confined to  the limits of a provincial electoral district. The  responsibility of members of co-operative associations is to be limited to the amount of their respective shares, only persons domiciled within the  limits of the association being permitted to become  members.'  The immediate-result of the passing of this  law was an awakening of interests in co-operative  credit in the entire province, and the success of  the system has been complete. In 1912 there were  98 Caisses Populaires in the Province of Quebec,  besides several in Ontario. The associations are  without exception doing well, and their number  is rapidly increasing.  ADMINISTRATION.  The administration of each association is carried on by three commissions or committees: the  Council of Administration composed of at least 5  members, more often of 9; the Committee on  Credit of three or four members; and the Committee of Supervision of 3 members.  The Council of Administration is chosen from  among the shareholders by a vote of the general  meeting. They hold office for two years. Where  there are nine members of the Council, 5 retire  by lot at the end of the year, and the remaining  four at the end of the second year. At its first  sitting the Council chooses a president, a vice-  president and a secretary, who form the executive  of the Board and besides, act as president, vice-  president and secretary of the association.  The powers of the Council of Administration  are extensive. They control the admission of new  members, determine the conditions upon which  stock may be transferred or withdrawn, and 'take  all the measures they deem advisable in the interest of the association not within the jurisdiction  of the general by-laws or law.' They also choose  the salaried manager who has access to their  meetings, keeps the books, signs documents as the  representative of the society, and under the supervision of the Council and Committees, conducts  the business of the bank.  The Committee on Credit consists of the president and four stockholders appointed at the general meeting. They determine the credit which  may be allowed to each member, and pass upon  applications for loans. If they refuse to garnt a  loan the shareholders concerned may appeal to  the Council of Administration. The members of  this Committee must know or make themselves  acquainted with the financial standing and moral  character of every borrower, and none of them  may borrow from the association or become  surety for any loan made during his term of  office.  The Committee of Supervision, elected by the  shareholders, forms a permanent board of supervision, audit and general criticism, which watches  over all the operations of the society. If they find  anything amiss they must report in writing to the  Council of Administration, and, under extraordinary circumstances, they have power to suspend  the operations of the association until a meeting  of the shareholders consider the situation.  OBJECTS OF THE ASSOCIATIONS.  The objects of the Caisses Populaires are well  embodied in the second article of the constitution  of 'La Caisse Populaire de Levis,' which is as  follows:  1. To protect its members against reverses of  fortune, the results of enforced idleness, sickness  and want, by teaching them the unappreciable  benefits of wise providential measures based on  mutual assistance and co-operation, and, in particular, by instilling and developing in them the  taste for, and the constant and energetic practise  of, economy on the most modest scale;  2. To aid them by a wise and prudent system  of credit in the shape of loans and advances, the  proposed employment whereof must be communicated to the association, by approved by it, and be  in accordance with the spirit in which it is founded;  3. To enable persons devoid of fortune, but  who are honest and labourious, to form part of  the association by granting them facilities for  paying up their shares in the capital stock by  means of small weekly installments;  4. To secure the practice of the Christian and  social virtues that mark the good citizen, the  honest, labourious and honorable worker, by exacting, above all, moral warranties of the highest  order from the shareholders who borrow from the  association;  5. To combat usury by means of co-operation,  by providing all who are deserving of the same,  through their fondness for work, their skill and  the integrity of their conduct, with the money  they require for carrying on their business or  occupation, thereby, making them independent of  lenders who levy exhorbitant commission or interest, or of those who impose too enormous conditions in connection with credit;  6. To foster the spirit of enterprise and promote local works, whether of an industrial or  agricultural character, by the prudent use of the  savings effected within the district covered by the  association's operations;  7. To spread amongst its members a practical  knowledge of the elementary principles of economic science;  8. To teach them respect for their engagements, and also the advantages inevitably derived by those who faithfully fulfil the obligations they have undertaken;  9. To create and foster mutual confidence between shareholders by means of economic relations based on the security of warranties of a  high character, inasmuch as they are founded in  a very great measure, on morality, order, love of  work and prudence;  10. To gradually procure them���������by persevering efforts towards securing economy and consequently a just measure of credit���������that economic  independence which inspires and fosters the feeling of personal dignity, and convinces one of the  need of relying above all upon oneself to improve  one's position and raise oneself in the social scale.  CAPITAL OF THE ASSOCIATIONS.  The capital of each association is variable, and  is raised by selling shares and by receiving deposits. The share capital is designed to furnish  the more stable portion of the association's funds  and the buying of shares is encouraged by a somewhat higher rate of interest than can be had in  the ordinary savings bank. The shares generally  $5 each may be paid for in small weekly and  monthly installments, and on the basis of these  shares the profits are distributed. Application  for membership must come before the Council of  Administration for approval, and according to  constitution of the association, the applicant  'must be honest, punctual in his payments, sober  and of good habits, industrious and labourious.'  A member must be expelled if he becomes bankrupt or insolvent, or should he in any way abuse  the privileges of the society through any violation  of the constitution or by-laws. The amount of  stock which a member may hold is limited and  each member has only one vote no matter how  much stock he holds. The limit was started in  the Levis society at $125 or 25 shares of stock.  The amount which each member may hold has  since been raised. The liability of each shareholder is limited to the amount of stock he holds.  Any person may withdraw from membership and  receive back all the installments which he has paid  on his shares, by giving thirty days' written notice  to the Council of Administration. In some of the  associations, even the thirty days' notice is waived  and a shareholder may at any time receive cash  for his stock.  The members of an association may deposit  their savings in amounts of not less than five cents,  and on all deposits current savings-bank rates of  interest are allowed. A school-children's savings  department is also opened. Each member making  a deposit is given a pass book in which each withdrawal or new deposit is entered as in ordinary  banking.  The 'Caisses Populaires' confine their business  almost entirely to their own membership. Loans  and discounts are granted only to members, and  from members alone are savings and other deposits received.  If a society requires more funds than it receives from its members it may contract for loans  from outsiders. Reserve funds may be invested  in sound business enterprises, and the working  surplus of a society may be kept on deposit in a  regular chartered bank. Apart from these three  classes of transactions the business of the association is strictly confined to the membership.  LOANS.  The granting of loans lies with the Committee  on Credit. Loans may be granted on the note or  acknowledgement of the borrowing shareholders;  or the committee may decide that the loan shall  be guaranteed by one or two other solvent members. According to Article 51, 'the Committee  must, above all, consider and obtain accurate information with regard to the honour, the spirit of  order, the activity, honesty and ability of the  borrower, for such are the chief warranties exacted by the association.'  In his application, the borrower must state the  purpose for which he wishes the loan, and this  purpose must conform with the aims of the association. The advantage and convenience of the  borrower is carefully considered both as to the  time and manner of repayment, and as to the rate  of interest charged, the instalment plan of repayment being always encouraged when it is possible. The installments may be placed on deposit  and draw interest until enough has been accumulated to pay the debt in full; or by special arrangement, the installments may be applied directly in  reducing the debt, interest being charged only on  the unpaid portions for the time which elapses  from the granting of the loan until such instalment is paid. It is considered a point of honour  that the borrower live strictly up to the terms of  his agreement.  The aim of an association being to benefit the  greatest possible number of members a number of  small loans to different persons are given the  preference, all things being equal, over one large  loan. A member in a position to use a large  amount profitably can generally obtain it from a  chartered bank, while the poorer member has no  security which he can offer. The general meeting fixe sannually the amount which may be  loaned to any individual shareholder. Below the  limit thus set the Committee on Credit exercise  their own discretion.  Although the associations offer decided advantages from the standpoint of the borrower,  substantial profits accumulate in their treasuries.  For example, during the fiscal year ending November 30th. 1909. the profits of the Levis Soeietv  were $4,861.72.  COST OF OPERATION AND DISTRIBUTION  OF PROFITS.  The running expenses of the associations are  invariably light. The only paid official of the  regular society is the business manager, and he is  paid according to the time he devotes to the society. He is generally some one who can give  time to the affairs of the bank without interfering  too much with his regular occupation. The salary  of the manager of the Levis Society in 1909 amounted to $463.45. Other expenses, such as printing, lighting, heating, and occasionally travelling  expenses do not amount to a large sum. After  payment of the general costs of operation comes  the claim for interest on deposits of which the  society has had the use.  Twenty per cent, of the net profits of each  year, as well as ten cents on each share paid as an  entrance fee, is put aside as a reserve fund. This  is done each year until the fund reaches a maximum of double the amount distributed in profits  on the paid-up stock of any year. The reserve  fund is invested by the Council of Administration  in such ways as are attended with a minimum of  risk.  Each association has also a Provident Fund  constituted by means of ten per cent, assessment  on the profits of each year until the fund attains  a maximum of one half of the yearly profits distributed on the paid-up stock.  The assessments for both the reserve and provident funds may be increased or decreased by  vote of the general meeting.  After all these claims have been met comes the  distribution of dividends on the paid up stock.  Shares not paid up when the year began receive  dividends in proportion to the time elapsed since  the last installment was paid.  The following from the Ninth General Report  of La Caisse Populaire de Levis will serve to illustrate what has been said about expenses and  distribution of profits:  Profits for the year ending Nov. 30,1909, $4,861.72  General expenses for the year     463.45  Interest on savings deposits for the year..    592.53  Leaving a net balance of..., $3,805.74  Reserve fund standing^rom last year. .$4,101.87  Entrance fee for current year     283.35  Twenty per cent, of net profits     761.15  Present reserve fund $5,146.37  Provident fund standing from last year. .$ 912.59  Ten per cent, of net profits     380.57  Present provident fund $1,293.16  The drawing on the surplus to the extent of  $46.86, a dividend of four and a half per cent, was  declared on the paid-up stock for the year, making  a total of $2,710.88 distributed in dividends on  the 12,953 shares of stock which were paid up in  time to participate in the yearly distribution of  profits. Summing up the reserves as they stand  at the end of the year we have:  Reserve fund $5,146.37  Provident fund  1,293.16  Undivided  surplus     337.78  Total' patrimoine' $6,777.31     j\  WORK OF THE RURAL CAISSES  POPULAIRES.

The bath in the water seemed to  have helped my horse, but I rod* alow*  ly up the valley toward tha -wood  which served aa my guide. Before  I reached the skirmlsbars, great drops  of rain fell, and than a downpour, utterly blotting out the landscape,  lightning flashed, tha thunder unremitting, tbe rain a flood, water leaped  down tho side of the hill cascades,  and, blinded, I drew my horse back  Into the slight shelter of the wood,  and waited, gripping him by the bit.  Man ran back down the hill, seeking  shelter from the fury of lt, and I bent  my head, soaked to the skin. For the  first time I realised how tired I waa,  every muscle aching with the strain  of the long night's march, my bead  throbbing from the awful beat of the  early morning. I aat down ln the  mud and water; my arm through the  bridle rein, my head against the  trunk of a tree, which partially protected my face from the beating rain.  But there was no sleep possible.  My mind pictured the field of action,  reviewed the events leading up to thia  hour, and, as surely, reverted to Claire  Mortimer. I had almost forgotten  the sturdy downpour so intensely was  I thinking, when a courier came spurring forward, blinded by tha storm,  yet riding recklessly. He must have  seen the group of men huddled at the  ledge of tbe grove, for he drew up hia  morse, calling my name.  "Major Lawrence, I come from Gen**  Ural Maxwell," he shouted between  the crashes of thunder. "Yon are  Jglven command of the right of the  line, and will press on regardless of  jthe storm until the enemy if met ln  force. Dragoons have been seen two  mllea east   You understand, air?"  "Yes," leading forth my horse.  "Come on. lads, It's the top of the  hill!   What fbout the artillery?"  "We may not be able to move tbe  guns," he answered, "bnt you are to  keep your powder as dry as possible  isnd hold Clinton to tbe road. Pry  Ipowder will be sent as soon as tbe  storm breaks. That's all, sir."  I I could scarce see tbe fellow as hla  horse whirled, and went splashing  down the slope. Through the mist of  rain the men gathered about were  mere blotches.  f "All right, you water-rats, come on!"  I sang out cheerfully. "Well give tbe  Red-coats the butts of our guns anyhow."  r There was a faint cheer aa the  {drenched figures sprang forward racing after me. Twice we ran up against  small parties of horsemen, exchanging  shots, but these fell back, leaving tbe  road clear. By dark we were at JSng*  lishtown, hungry and thoroughly worn  put and there we baited, sleeping  upon our arms.

Returned the  Frenchman: 'It may be so, general;  but British soldiers bave been beaten,  and may be again; at any rate I am  disposed to make the trial."'  "Tis not like General Lee," I  broke in.

The next day���������Sunday, tba twenty-  eighth of June, 177&���������-dawned with  cloudless sky, hot, sultry, the warmest  day of the year. Not a breath of  air stirred the leaves, and in tho tree  branches above ua birds aang gleefully. Before daybreak we, who had bean  permitted to sleep for a few hours,  were aroused by the sentries, aad, ln  the gray dawn, partook of a meager  breakfast A fresh supply of ammunition was brought up and distributed  among the men, and, before sunrise,  we wore In line, stripped for a hot  day's work, eagerly awaiting orders.  I can make no pretense at describing ln any detail, or sequence, the  memorable action at Monmouth Court  House, but must content myself with  depleting what llttla I saw upon the  firing line of Maxwell's brigade. We  advanced slowly eastward over a gent*  ly rolling country, diversified by small  groves. In advance was a thin line  of skirmishers, and to left and right  were Dickinson's and Wayne's men,  their muskets gleaming ln the sun*  light Early the rumor crept about  among us that Lee bad come up during the night with fresh troops, and  assumed command.  Who led us was of but small consequence, however, as there was now no  doubt in any mind but what battle was  inevitable. Already to the south  echoed a sound of firing where Morgan had uncovered a column of Dra-  goonB. Th������n a courier from Dickinson dashed along our rear seeking  Lee, scattering broadcast tbe welcome  news that Knyphausen and his Hessians, the van of the British movement, were approaching. With a cheer  of anticipation, the solders flung aside  ���������very article possible to discard, and  pressed recklessly forward. Before  we moved a mile my horse became ao  Scott over yonder?'  Maxwell nodded, too angered for  words. Then, as tbe courier galloped  away, turned in his saddle.  "By heaven! I suppose we most do  it Lawrence. But what folly! What  asininity! We've got the Redcoats  i hemmed in. and did you ever see a  better field? Pray God I may hear  Washington when he comes up. I'd  rather be dead then, than Charles  Lee."  We gave the orders, and tho men j Sh'ld  fell back sullenly, swearing fiercely  aa they caught the rebellious spirit of  their officers. Scarcely able to breathe  ln tbe hot, stagnant air, caked with  foul mud to the waist we attained the  higher ground, and dropped helpless.  Even from here the enemy ware In*  visible, although we could see the  smoke of their guns, and hear distant  crackle of musketry. I sat np, staring through the beat waves toward  the eminence on the left where  Wayne's men remained, showing dimly against the trees. A group of horsemen were riding down the slope,  heading toward our line. As they  came into the sandy plain below and  skirted the morass, I recognised Lee  tn advance, mounted on a black horse  flecked with foam.   Twice he paused, j  For to get better rates I will try.  His journey at length proved quite  fruitless,  The rates were inclined to rise;  The Banks wouldn't lend for his purpose.  And their agents went up  in the  slcic s *  "Too'   bad   wife,"  he   said,   "that   a  charter,  Which is given to a Bank for our  use;  be  used   for   to   peddle   and  barter,  And turned to such fearful abuse."  "Do you know that those Banks have  a license.  To print all these bills just at cost;  Of printing and paying cheap helping?  All the rest to the country is lost;  These    millions    and    billions   they  handle  Is graft which our rulers have given;  At both ends    wc    are   burning the  candle,  I hope they will soon go to Heaven."  And leave us down here minus banking,  A common wealth run by the iust:  Such   business   machines  need   some  spanking,  gating across the hills through leveled j    If not our whole land will go bust;  field glasses, and then rode up the I Our nation sh'ld start stamping mil-  steep ascent to our rear. Maxwell  met blm not twenty feet from where  I lay.  "What does this mean, air?" Lee  thundered hoarsely. "Why are your  men lying strewn about in this unsol-  dierly manner, General Maxwell?'*  Are you unaware, sir, that we are in  the presence of the enemy?"  Maxwell's face fairly blazed, aa he  straightened in the saddle, but before  his lips could form an answer, a sud-  den cheer burst out from the crest of  ths hill, and I saw men leaping to  their feet and waving tbeir bats. The  next instant across the summit came  Washington, a dozen officers clattering  behind,   his   face   stern-set and  linns.

Mr. and Mrs. Wenman, pioneer settlors of Souris, Manitoba, are visiting  Mr. W. J. Barcley of 312 Sixth street  west.  Mr. H. C. Wright has been accepted  by the council for the position on the  Ferry Board vacated by the resignation of Mr. W. C. Gladstone.  MrB. Moffat of Manitoba, who has  been visiting Mrs. John Barcley, has  returned  to hy home so Impressed  with this country that she intends to  visit here annually and possibly make  her future home in B. C.  The heavy rains of Sunday melted  the snow on the mountains on the  north shore and as a result the Capilano River became a raging torrent.  Damage was done to the city's water  pipe seven miles from the First Narrows, and the government crib work  near the mouth of the stream was  washed away.  Mr. William Spencer of Bankhead,  B. C, has bought a lot on Larson road  at the intersection 6f Fir street, where  he  intends to erect  a house.    Mr.  Spencer, senior,   and   Mrs.   Spencer,  have rente/1 a house on Fifth street,  where they expect to take up their  residence for the present.  Mr. and Mrs. Weir have moved into  thejr new home on Grand: Boulevard.  The purchase was made through Hutchison, Compston ft Co.  The cllpr council on Monday night  granted, as far as was in their power,  to the Fell Estate for the use of the  Amalgamated  Engineering  Co.,  who  have the contract for the government  dry dock, an uninterrupted stretch of  waterfront from Fell to McKay avenues, which lies between the P. G. E.  R. right of way and the waterfront  In return there will be deeded to the  city 66 feet on tbe west side ot Fell  Avenue, making a street 132 feet in  width here.  ���������   ���������   ������  Tbe funeral ot Mr. Henry M. Spence  took place on Monday from the Har-  ron Undertaking Parlors. The official  inquiry, which, .waa held relative to  his death, showed tbat he was ln tbe  act of getting into the cradle, where  he sat to operate the motor, wben he  came into contact with a live wire,  and toppled over, falling about 15 ft.  The neck was dislocated. Young  Spence was about IS years ot age. and  lived witb his parents at 436 Third  street east.  A reorganization of the Ratepayers'  Assocation was arranged for at a  meeting which took place on Wednesday evening, Oct. 8 last, and on  the following Wednesday the officers  were elected as follows: oult,  president; M. B. Martinson, vlce-presi  GRAND FORKS FAIR COMES  Ai  TO SUCCESSFUL CLOSE  proposed that the city council take  over the ferry company's affairs. This  had several supporters. Mr. H. G.  English, a director of the company,  presided.  Mayor Haines the principal speaker,  stated that the meeting was,called bo  that the views of the .ratepayers could  be obtained. Tbe ferry company was  facqd with a considerable deficit. The  bank had refused to honor its checks  and the situation was serious. He  criticized the past bookkeeping methods of tbe company, especially in regard to there being no reserve fund.  To all intents and purposes the company was insolvent. This declaration  came in for a great deal of criticism  later on in the discussion.  His worship stuck to the assertion.  He said the company was unable to  pay its debts and steps could be taken by creditors to recover their claims  from the assets. Under the present  system of charging repairs to capital  expenditure it was hard to find out  just where the company stood and he  would refuse to sign any balance  statement until it was cleared up. He  argued that the sum of at least $10,-  000 should be set aside for a reserve  fund.  "I want the accounts put in order,"  he declared. "This waB the reason I  insisted on having the books inspected. They must show me where the  profits are."  As an example of the methods of  bookkeeping, he said that" Ferry No.  2, which originally cost $50,000, was  now worth $80,000 by the books. According to the system of bookkeeping the vessel became mere valuable  as repairs and other expenses were  added to it  A Voice���������Better trade-/it'{for the  Niobe.    (Laughter.) :' .'���������������������������'���������  The mayor said it was eitber a case  of a-aising tbe rates or letting things  drift on as they were.  A long discussion was participated  in by Messrs. Geo. Morden, Alex.  Philips, Wm. Knowles, Kesn, Reeve  May, Direptor Crickraay and others,  during which the bank was criticized  for its attitude. It was insisted that  to^ increase the rates would hurt North  Vancouver.  Grand Forks, B.C.���������Departing visitors, here to attend the Fall Fair, were  all agreed that Grand Forks outdid  itself this year and produced a fair  which will set the standard for similar events in this section for some  time to* come. Tbe presence of mayors  and other public officials from nearby  cities, together with their words of  unstinted praise for the high quality  of the exhibits shown, did much for  the promotion of good feeling and the  removal of any lnterurban jealousies  that may have existed in the past  Among the exhibits which attracted  particular attention was a display of  51 various manufactured products  from apples, which was an educational  revelation in itBelf, especially for an  apple growing district.  WHERE POPULATION DOUBLES  IN THREE YEARS  OFFICER8 ELECTED  FOR  ENSUING YEAR  Mr. L. Watts-Donsy Will Fill Position  of  President  of  North  Vancouver  Board of Trade for Year.

The  Kamloops, B.C.���������Railway construction work now going forward in the  immediate vicinity of Kamloops is estimated 'as amounting to at least six  million dollars, the present extensions  of the Canadian Northern figuring as  the most important item in this programme, as this city in now the. construction centre for that road in this  part of the Province. Recently compiled figures indicate that there are  now more miles of railway under con*  struction in British Columbia than the  mileage in actual operation. As a result of this activity a marked uplift is  noted here in general business conditions, and local merchants are stocking for an unusually heavy trade for  this Fall and the coming Winter.  RAILWAY FIGURES IN  TRADE EXPANSION  Elko, B.C.���������A review of the first  year of operation ot Elko-Fort Steele  section of the Kootenay Central Railway Indicates the substantial trade expansion that has been in progress dur-.  ing this period as a consequence of  the improved transportation facilities.  With Elko situated right at the gateway to the Columbia Kootenay Valley,  it appears tbat the big annual output  of the valley is now being drawn  through Elko as the funnel, and the  effect upon trade, conditions has been  unmistakable. Arrangements are now  well in band for the systematic development of the valley by the Kootenay Central Railway, and the. completion of the new route through tbe  East Kootenay conutry is aimed at by  the close of the year. Meanwhile it  is now regarded as a practical certainty tbat in recognition ot the industrial position of Elko and its proximity to the heart ot the British Columbia coal belt, the C. P. R. will build  its repair shops in the immediate vicinity, besides establishing a tourist  hotel, and that the effect upon the  local business situation will be far-  reaching and permanent.  VIOLATION  OF SEED CONTROL  ACT  Association appeared before a com  mittee of the council on the evening  of Oct. 9th and the council, who were  not legally elected, consented that a  new election should take place.  Ex-Mayor McNeish has purchased  from Mr. Carroll, grocer, Vancouver,  six acres of land situated in Capilano,  near the end of the, carline, for which  he payed $1500 per acre.  Opposed to Increase in Fares  At a largely attended meeting on  Tuesday evening, callqd by the council  and directors of the Ferry Company,  the vote of the ratepayers of North  Vancouver showed them against any  raise in the ferry fare.  The resolution which was finally  carried was as follows: "That the time  is not opportune for an increase in  the ferry rates and that the ferry directors be asked not to raise the  rates. If there are any deficits the  city council should be asked to meet  them., and that the sanction of the Attorney-General should be obtained for  the  latter  course."    An   amendment  ture for twelve months was $336.36-.  The chairman of the membership  committee reported a membership of  153 for the year ending Sept. 30. This  is an increase of thirteen over the  previous year.  Ownership of Ferry  Mr. W. J. Irwin said that he was  opposed to thei reorganization of the  ferry company so that it could be organized under the direct control of  the city council. He based his objections on the ground that the city  did really own the ferries. The city  controlled all the shares of stock with  the exception of five or six, transferred temporarily to the members of  the; ferry board. For the city to take  over the direct operation of the company would mean the forfeiture of  the limited liability of the company.  It would also mean that ferry affairs  would be made the football at every  civic election.  A committee will be appointed by  the new executive to co-operate in  ferry matters with the central ratepayers'  committee,  A case of general interest to farmers  and others throughout British Columbia was recently brought under this  Act when The Sylvester Feed Company of Victoria was convicted of selling cabbage seed of low vitality without Indicating the percentage of germination of tbe same. Under section  10 of the Dominion Seed Control Act  all farm and vegetable seeds which  germinate lower than two-thirds the  standard vitality of good seed for that  particular variety, must be labelled  with the percentage of germination.  It is the intention of the Dominion  Department of Agriculture to strictly  enforce all the provisions of the Seed  Control Act of 1911, and anyone handling seeds should see to it that their  seed complies with thiB Act. The Dominion Seed Laboratory at Calgary,  Alberta, is at the service of anyone  desirous of having seed tested either  for vitality or weed seeds. Copies of  the Act and information as to the  same may also be obtained from the  same address.  EQG������LAYINQ CONTEST  BRITISH COtUMBIA DEPARTMENT OF  AGRICULTURE.
