',...-..  ' "The immigration to Canada for the past 13  years has been 2,521,144, or about one-third of  the present population.  "Immigration introduces an entirely new element into.a country; it may be similar to or it  may materially alter the native type. It is the  privilege of a people to choose what class shall  enter. '%A  "Asiatic immigration should {not be viewed  ; from a race standpoint, rather the question is:  can we assimilate them t Will they adversely: affect oi������ attih^^ the Oriental  bring with! him desirable social, economic and  moral principles f  f'A race, with ancient traditions and a fixed  type of national life���������who, m������ke theij iwcestry a  fetish���������who outnumber us ������tty |o.p|������f-#ho bring  with them and retain their peculiar racial characteristics, such is the Chineae.  ��������������� ��������� The Hindu ia a British subject entitled to the  protection of British law, be i������ ^ i^ nor baa  heever been a British, citixan. :tfi������tiVhe exerci^  the rights and privileges o* a citizen in bis own  land he cannot claim such rights here.  "India owes aU its modern advancement, its  peace and prosperity, the development of its natural resources, its knowledge of democratic institutions to the arbitrary military rule of the British."  "Remove British rule from India and the various potentates would immediately become involved in a; most hitter interne eene war.  "Only 16,000,000 people in India out of about  350,000,000 are under a form of representative  municipal government and then only one-half of  the boards are elected, the other half being ap**  pointed by the government.  "Every one marries in India and marries  young. There are nine million girl wives under  15 years of age. There are two millions between  the ages of eight and eleven. Twenty-five per  cent, of the women in India die prematurely because of physical crimes perpetrated through the".  horrible system of child marriage. Twenty-five  per cent, are permanently invalided from the  same cause and one-third of the children born of  mothers under sixteen die in infancy. Do you  desire to introduce such an awful system into  Canada?  "I challenge any supporter of Hindu immigration to cite one single benefit conferred upon humanity as a whole by Hindu civilization. The  Hindu does not, nor will he pioneer. He congregates in the great centers and undermines the industrial standards. He is a theorist, visionary  and utterly impracticable; be is impossible as a  settler.  "Japanese immigration is controlled by treaty  arrangement as is evidenced by the following  clause in the bill ratifying the treaty: 'Nothing  in the said treaty shall be deemed to repeal or  affect any of the provisions of the Immigration  Act.'  "Asiatic immigration has done more to retard  the development of B. C. than any other cause.  "I believe that the $500 head tax on Chinese  - has proven to be totally inadequate and that We  should endeavor to secure a similar arrangement  with China as we have with Japan, whereby they  would themselves restrict immigration. This I  hope to secure."  THAT AMERICAN ORGANIZER  There are two wings to the Liberal party in  B. C. There is that element under the leadership  of P. C. Wade who stand for "Laurierism,"  which means Imperial seperation. This wing imported a "political ward boss" from the United  '������������������';.   States as organizer.  Then there is the other wing, composed of. honest liberals, men who are of the ancient "Whig"  party, who are seeking in vain for some trace of  the old Liberal doctrines in the party platform;  these are asking: "Why an American boss!"  "Why pay him $10,000 per year." "Why not  expell the Yukon brigade?" "Who are we anyway?" "Whither bound?" and so the work goes  merrily on.  ���������.-'������  So acute is the feeling re the practice  the next sitting of Parliament at Ottawa  tigate the business of the "Loan Shairtis,"'  of registration which will effectivelycurb  An effort will be made to so amend "  charge a higher rate of interest on any Id  striction only applies to loans under J500J  be abolished.  of usury that an effort will be made at  to secure a Royal Commission to inves-  It is also intended to devise some scheme  the avarice of these creatures.

The following is an example of how a modern Shylock actually received  his "pound of -flesh."-:  A certain contractor found himself one day Without the cash to meet some  pressing liabilities, consisting of wages and ordinary trade obligations. The bank  could not help him. What was he to do I As if by magic he learned that, while  the bank was unable to help him, there was an eminent bank official who could.  With joy in his soul he sought the benevolent official and located him in his  beautifully upholstered chambers.  **Why, yes, certainly he could have a $1,000.00 loan. What security had he t"  A note endorsed by one of Vancouver's oldest and. most respected citizens was  produced. s  "Yes, quite satisfactory," quoth the philanthropist.  "But what riate jo| interest is to be charged?" asks the Hnnocent.'  "Oh, no rate at m* I will only charge yon sixty dollars a month" (which being Interpreted, means72 per cent, per*nn������m). ^-yy::���������yu-'y-.  %e|^art of Ite  : .ofritt'ft-maidk^s^ ..Byyy Xixyyyyfyyy^'. x x-y^yyyy  The fijrst yttionth he paid 72 per cent, and at thevisnd was twilyable to pay off  $50.00. The second month he was paying 76 per cent., for. remember the sixty dollars a month continued until the whole loan was paid. Be paid off another fifty,  and so on month by month.  Now, this man paid interest at the following increasing rates, approximately:  Third month, 80 per cent.; sixth month, 96 per cent.; ninth month, 120 per cent.;  twelfth month, lo0 per cent.; fifteenth month, 240 per cent* 3y this time the principal was reduced to $300.00. The "innocent" had learned wisdom, or thought he  had; and inasmuch as he had repaid over $1,600.00, decided he would stop. Shylock sued for bis pound of fiesh ($3������Q.0Q) and gQt judgment against both the debtor  and the endorser.  We have been asked repeatedly to name those engaged in this business and to  give names in the cases published from week to week. Tbere is some difficulty in  doing this, as many of the victims are very loath to have the public know that they  are forced to deal with such vultures. Not many persons are willing to exhibit  pawn checks���������so in these cases. This fear of publicity on the part of the victims  has for years been the chief protection of these parasites.  However, these modern Shylocks shall have the exquisite pleasure, nay, the  honor, of having their names published in the columns of The Western Call.  Jn the near future we shall publish a list of those who loan money at a greater  rate of interest than 12 per cent. We do not expect to give a full list, but some  of the names will be of interest in any case, and we will make no charge for thus  advertising their business.  Second Narrows Bridge  Sir John Wolfe Barry has designed a bridge  to meet the requirements of this growing community; it will cost lew than $2,500,000. It provides for steam rail traffic for electric tram traffic, for vehicular and pedestrian traffic. It haa  been approved by the Dominion Government and  the Railway Commission. It hss two clear openings of 225 feet each, and a head clearance at  high tide of 50 feet. In every respect the bridge  is to be a magnificent structure and suited to our  requirements.  There is ample funds to commence construction  ahd keep the work going for a year and a half,  and there is sufficient borrowing power to make  up the balance and by the time the funds available are used up the market will be in shape to  float the bonds.  Now why this unseemly delay in letting the contracts?  Why this appeal to the Provincial Government  to take over the project?  Sir Richard McBride before leaving Victoria,  told the delegation who waited upon him and  made this request, that in his opinion a bridge  similar to the old New Westminster bridge would  do. This would mean the abandonment of our  cherished hope of years, that we should be adequately linked up with the North Shore. It  would reduce the structure to a railway bridge  for the P.G.E.  Now we want the P.G.E. (or more correctly  speaking the Grand Trunk Pacific, for the P.G.E.  is only a branch of the G.T.P.) to enter Vancou  ver, but are we prepared to sacrifice all our plans  for the benefit of a railway? Por what did we,  as citizens, vote the money, if not for a publicly  owned bridge to link up the two shores of the  Inlet?   To what purpose are these two and a half  years of struggle with details if all is now to be  abandoned?  Sir Richard was perfectly frank in the matter  and, according to London.despatches, he has been  in touch with the engineers there and stated his  intentions with equal candor. He has told us  that he does not favor a bridge with the accommodation provided in our approved plans and  that his chief object ia to get the Grand Trunk  Pacific branch into Vancouver. We should appreciate this frank open statement of our Premier  and not force upon his government a project with  which they are not in complete sympathy.  We, the municipalities, undertook this bridge  and we, not the Province, should see it through.  The Provincial Government has voted a handsome subsidy and we have no right to expect them  to care if we get tram connection or not, or if we  secure adequate provision for vehicular traffic.  Quite naturally their interest is wrapped up in  the P.G.E. or the G.T.P. branch line.  If a proper bridge is to be built it must be by  the municipalities affected, so let us get rid of  these chronic obstructors and proceed with the  work.  THE RT7BINOW1TZ CASE  It is quite easy to understand that in the opinion of an untrained special policeman the actions of Mr. Rubinowitz, in Nanaimo the other  day, were of such a nature as to warrant his being arrested; but that he should have been refused bail is totally inexcusable.  It may be that the police are making genuine  and impartial efforts to restore order, but it is  hard to understand how such a course, as that  followed in the case of Rubinowitz, can inspire  public confidence. It only illustrates the imperative need in this Province of a body of trained  men on the Provincial police force.  ISAAC HENDERSON OF  THE (OUp OF ISRAEL  ANO THE "DOUBLE SWING"  (By Prof. E. Odhun, M.A., B.Sc)  Isaac Henderson, of the House of Israel, write*  to the press from time to time, and always leads  his pen-point with good solid sound thought, aad  likewise a very pleasing humorous sarcasm he-  times.  His latest cargo unloaded, by means of the  "Advertiser," upon the public is one of his best  and most apt in its reach. He calls his letter by  the name of "The Immortal Hope," and names it  very properly. And yet I would feel inclined to  mention that production by the term, "The Right  and Left Pendulum Swing."  In short, Mr. Henderson does two things .by a  sudden stroke of his nimble pen nib. He places the  Universe Machine Men and the Theistic Dogmatists. The latter are put out in space and tune  at the fa^tbest right-hand swing of eternity's  pendufafc, ai4 tfcs #mer are set ������rt cqnaUy far  towards the left-haad swing of that same pendulum. The great advantage in such placement is  that the ordinary reader and thinker can readily  .7;|?^||{^^^^:.''WM nwd between these  iW"*. ^*^^99*W&0**\\9~���������* *r^9n*i^^^^a\j)  Another good thing Mr. Henderson does is  what few have dared to do in the past of any age  or of any creed. He clearly, and correctly states  that both parties build solely ujwn asftunptfow,  and are equally guilty or praiseworthy in tbis  matter. He goes further, again correctly, and  asserts that no man, good, bad or indifferent,  learned or unlearned, scientist, religionist or  other, if there be such, can proceed in any direction without an ASSUMPTION of some sort. He  says tbat all theists stand on assumption, that all  scientists stand on assumption, that all philosophers so stand, and all men stand so.  This is plain and easily understood. Bnt in so  taking his ground it is well to make very plain  that there are very different kinds of assumptions,  some are on their face true and basic beyond any  great doubt. Others are exceeding doubtful, and  many are silly in the extreme. An assumption  may be known truth. And it may be purely speculative or conjectural, which is pretty nearly the  same thing. In fact, the whole realm of philosophic thought is the realm of speculation and  conjecture.  Furthermore, there is no' scientist living, no  theologian living or dead for that matter, who  does not know right well that he is, in the vast  multitude of his thinkings, pre-eminently a philosopher: to wit, a speculator; further to wit, a  conjecturer overwhelmed with endless attempts at  solving the cause and end of all things, or what  is about the same thing, ANY ONE THING.  And these two far-apart men of the "Right  Swingy and "Left Swing" know that in the end  of their philosophies they arrive at the same  place, viz., at an astounding lot of ignorance.  This they mutually know, but hate to acknowledge  to one another, while they wax eloquent, and at  times very fierce, in their logoraachic struggles.  Now a word on Mr. Henderson's mode of putting his thought, which is better worth putting  before the public than about ninety-five per cent,  of what pours out through the newspapers and  magazines. To get the reading public by the ear,  Mr. Henderson should cut his sentences in two, or  three, or even more pieces. They are too cumbersome. This must bother the average "reader.  When the thought contained is heavy, basic and  complex, the language should be of the simplest  sort. This kindly criticism I offer so that Mr.  Henderson may gain a larger reading clientage  which he surely deserves. No man in British  Columbia offers to the public saner analyses of the  living subjects of the day in a more readable manner (barring the involved sentences to which I  have referred), and in a safer manner than the  writer whom I am commenting upon at present.  The subject matter of his letter to the Advertiser I shall deal with in a future issue of the  Western Call. His theme is the theme of all  thinking men. He has as strong and clear a notion of these fundamentals as has the more widely  known and honored Sir Oliver Lodge. I wish Mr.  Henderson the publicity and reading admirers he  deserves.

J. Miller, who  praised the quantity and quality of  the flowers, and the productions of the  women and children. Mr. Miller emphasised the tremendous factors such  exhibitions were In education, advertising and in social life. He advised  a system of competitive gardens for  children, the. establishing ot poultry  ranches in this, so peculiarly favored  district, sufficient to provide for the  needs ot the ctty, and egg-laying contests during the exhibitions. The  speaker urged the association to continue to maintain progress as their  watchword so that the larger Van*  couver should attract not only the  people from the crowded centre, but  should also influence the million passing through Vancouver to the great  Fair In California. Ex-Reeve Weart  gave a brief address.  The succeeding days of Wednesday  and Thursday witnessed large numbers present at the show. On Saturday the amateur sports of South Vancouver and Burnaby afforded much  pleasure and amusement Reeve McGregor of Burnaby, who was one of  the Judges, spoke in the highest terms  of the sports. Reeve Kerr of South  Vancouver, another judge, spoke of  the high order of the entire show,  and especially of the exhibit of the  Women's Institute, which received a  special prise. Councillor Wllber of  South Vancouver, and Councillors  Stride of Burnaby were also among  the speakers on Saturday afternoon,  and Councillor Stride said that it was  the intention of the Park Board, of  which he was a member, to so improve the grounds that they would be  better for the sports next year.  The entries were very numerous tn  all departments,, and the class was  quite equal, If not In excess of the average of past years.

The American Scaup on the Pacific Coast is  Bonhycastle Dale's contribution.  "Canuck" gives some practical advice to duck shooters and reminiscences of duck hunting expeditions  in days gone by. Shooting over a  Dog by "Senex" will be of interest to  those sportsmen who find big game  hunting too strenuous but enjoy the  milder form of sport involved in the  pursuit of small winged game. A  Day Among the Ducks by a Saskatchewan writer is a very amusing account of the duck hunting experiences  of an amateur shot.

I repeat it, sir, these are the men  at the very head of the Nationalist  movement in Ireland. For thirty  years and more they have been talking treason on every platform. Their  followers have outraged every feeling  of humanity by a record of crime that  he's blackened the page of their  country's history. Boycotting, intimidation, destruction of property,  burning .of homes, revolting cruelties  to helpless animals, brutal murder of  tbeir nearest neighbors���������the whole  ghastly record of cowardice, treachery  and crime has been condoned by  these very men, and yet we an told  that the Protestants of Ireland are  fools and bigots when they refuse to  be placed at the mercy of an Irish  Executive controlled and directed in  all its actions by these same individuals. Would the men of Canada submit to that? Then don't talk downright nonsense about Ulster doing  anything, of the kind. Listen to these  memorable words of one of the greatest friends ever Iriland had. John  aright, the great Liberal orator who  refused to follow Gladstone on the  very question. "My sympathy for  Ireland is as strong as in past years,  and I am as anxious to do justice to  her people, but it is this sympathy  which makes it impossible for me  to consent to hand over to this  "rebel conspiracy" the government of  five millions of the subjects of the  Queen, of whom I cannot doubt, two  millions are loyal and content with  the union with Great Britain. I am  asked why I cannot trust those leaders. I have seen their course for  seven years past and have heard and  read their speeches, and see in them  only hatred to England and disloyalty  to the Crown, and I am unwilling to  entrust to them any portion of the  population now under the goul of  the "Imperial Parliament" }. Gentlemen, those are the words of sober  neaa and truth and they voice exactly  the views of Protestant Ireland today.

Govt, to plunge Ireland into ,the horrors of a civil war?"  That is the question, and if England says "yes!" then the whole Empire may sit down in the dust and  chant "God save Ireland."  4. But I must hurry on and 1 go still  further and say that Ireland ahould  not have Home Rule because the  Nationalist leaders to-day have not  the confidence of a large and growing number of their fellow Catholics.  "The Irish Party haa comaatently  acted on the principle that the salvation of Ireland ia only to be wrought  by speeches and manoeuvers in the  House of Commons; it baa neglected  the intellectual, moral and economic  process of the country in order to  concentrate all its strength on the  Constitutional panacea; it has denied  that Ireland could be prosperous  without Home Rule, and it has opposed and condemned every effort  to make her prosperous as an act of  treason to the National cause."  The Nationalists ruined the work  of the Irish General Council which  was formed of representatives from  all the Country Councils of Ireland,  and which brought leading Unionists and Home Rulers together Ao  consult for the good of the country.  They did their best to ruin tbe great  work of Sir Horace Pliakett for  gricultural Ireland, and finally persuaded the Liberal Government to  put him out of office as Vice-President of the Department of Agriculture, for the creation of which he  was mainly responsible.' They tried  to kilt his Irish Agricultural Organisation because it recognized neither  political nor religious differences and  taught Irish farmers to help themselves. Mssrs. Dillon and Redmond  finally had the Government grant, for  this purpose stopped. They found  the Land Purchase, Aet working so  smoothly and making the farmers of  Ireland so content that tbey feared  their agitation would die, and they  secured an act at the hands of Mr.  Birrelt in 1909 which has practically  stopped the sale of land to the farmers so that instead of about six years  as required by tbe Wyadfcam Act it  will need 45 years to complete land  purchased and whit has been tbe  result?

SENSATIONAL    ATTRACTIONS.  New Westmintser, B. C, Sept. 24.���������  The most sensational and thrilling  array of high class attractions ever  presented at any exhibition will be  seen at the provincial exhibition  which will be held in New Westminster from September 30 until October  4 inclusive.  None of the attractions have ever  been seen in the west before and they  were secured exclusively for the New-  Westminster fair only at a great cost.  Three bands will be in attendance  and with these attractions the two  Minto cup games, athletic events, the  horse show, and other features as well  as "Sockeye Run," which alone is  more fun than a circus, there should be  no dearth of amusements.  Arrangements for staging the special attractions in front of the gTand  stand are about complete and a varied  program has been arranged for every  afternoon.  the Imperial Govt Probably not tea  of thene would have passed or faced  the ordeal, of the Irish polls but for  the <-oHe*-_ting hat at Trans-Atlantic  meetings Snd the uncivic oaths and  combinations of the political Sacristy  and the Ribbon Lodge. Certainly  almost all of them are the survivors  of the sordid items who from 1880-  to 1890, and later, ate their daily dole  from the red-stained hands of Egan  and Ford"  (Vol. II, p. 472)  That, ladies and gentlemen, is the  deliberate opinion of one who had all  opportunity of knowing. the Irish  Party during many years and it ts  worth careful consideration by all  those who favor putting these men hi  power at Parliament House on  Stephens Green.  5. And now, sir, I come to the final  and strongest reason why Ireland  should not have Home Rule. It is  the reason that lies at the root of the  whole subject. I do not find any  pleasure in dealing witb it, bnt I  cannot present the true facts of the  case without touching it It is the  religions difficulty which haa been to  txprsssid    la   the  fCentinuee. on t*e*o Tl  =_____=====s===a____5-_=_-  maintain that   many   tbowwMip^ of tentative* of ths people of Ireland,  Dr. de Van's Female Pftb  AreliabtePreachntfatatart-uvart__b. .lew  p:IU are tree���������dimly eowrtwl in rankatH- tks  S-w������rati-r������portkraof<_Mi-������atefTm_L Kaiarw  ���������U cheap imitation*.

B.O.  end ffty-Tsseatativef of every city were  thronging to London to do him boo  or, Dublin held an "Independence  Demonstration"���������that was their own  name for it���������at the Custom House  where national independence was  affirmed as their object and the  Union Jack was burnt by the mob  amid resounding cheers as Alderman  Kelly addressed them. Limerick  City Council unanimously condemned  their Mayor for going to the Corona  tion, the Union Jack was burnt in  their streets by a crowd headed by  one of the City Council, while Cork  issued a manifesto calling on their  public men to keep their "city free  from Slavishness, and to reject any  proposal to address the English  King on his Coronation." At New  Ross a rowdy throne marched round  the town, tore down all the English  flags, carried them to the foot of  the monument to the rebels of '98,  spat upon them, tore them to shreds  and burnt them amid cheers and  songs, while the American and  German flags that flew from many  arches were not touched. These men  refuse to toast the King at any of  their public functions; they will not  sing the National Anthem, yet we  are told they are patriots and the  Ulster-men are bigots and tyrants  afraid of losing ascendancy. What  would have happened in Vancouver  if anyone had dared to pull down  the Union Jack and burn it during  the visit of the Duke of Connaught?  I teU you frankly there ie more balderdash talked on tide Home Rule  question than on any other subject  under heaven. The party press of  onr whole Dominion reveals a culpable ignorance of the entire situation,  condemning men who have contributed as much to the upbuilding of the  Empire and endured more for her  sake than any other people on earth.  Men ask ua today "Will Ulster fightr  as if they were talking of a baseball  game, or as if the whole thing were  a joke. "Will Ulster figfatT is not  the question, but "will England allow  the ^mart"g stupidity of die present [of the Empire can make and unmake  bnt they did not dare to call th*  people together in their local conventions even to consult with them  before nominating their candidates  at the last elections. They simply  nominated the men put forward by  the United Irish League and the  Ancient Order of Hibernians. So  little do the people they claim to  represent care for their policy that  they refuse to contribute for their  support The funds have steadily  dropped from 1907 until Mr. Redmond had to complain lately that his  Party would have been bankrupt but  for the $50,000 collected in America  and Canada by I. P. O'Connor on  his last visit. Mr. Dillon has stated  the same, and Rev. Father Ctlleoen,  at a meeting of the League in Gal-  way, said that now the farmers had  got the land' it was a much harder  thing to get any money from them  for Home Rule purposes. The Nationalists claim 3^00,000 Home Rulers in Ireland and if these were only  to give one penny a month it would  mean 175,000 pounds a year, but instead of that the so-called patriots  of Ireland gave only ������3,500 in 1909���������  not even one farthing each in the  year. As Sydney Brooks, a support  er of Home Rule, wrote not long ago  in the English Review, "The Gom-  in the English Review, "The Gombeen-man, the publican and the priest  pull the strings to which Mr. Redmond's and his followers dance. The  people as a whole have wearied of  them or regard them as play actors  provided for their diversion. They  will do anything rather than sub  scribe for their support" F. Hugh  O'Donnell, for years a member of  that party, and intimate in its councils, a devout Roman Catholic, has  lately written two volumes of a  "History of the Irish Parliamentary  Party" in which he shows that the  bulk of Irish M. P's are not representatives of the people, but the  nominees of rigged conventions and  the hirelings of the pay-chest. These  are his words. .."The phase, the decision of the majority of the party' is  employed to cover the nakedness of j  the brutal reality. As the majority of  the party consists of poor devils to  whom the loss of their hire of ������4. a  week would be destitution, and who  generally have no conception of what  is or is not for the good of the  country, "the decision of the majority" is always the decision of the  pay-chest."

Considerable progress has been made in the matter  owing to the determination of the energetic alderman, Capt. Geo. MeSpadden, who represents  Grandview in the City Council. The Minister oi  Militia was approached upon the matter at the  end of July laat and promptly evinced his interest in the scheme and as soon as the formal application was made no time was lost in forwarding  the official authorization and the worthy alderman was promoted to the rank of major while  organizing the regiment and as soon as that is  completed he will be advanced to the dignity of  lieutenant-colonel. Considerable progress is being made with the enrollment of recruits.  A most  Captain Victor W. Odium  excellent type of man if coming forward, and  overtf(J0 arp nt. wi enrolled;   It is particularly  gratifying |o find that there is so much loyalty  and public spirit in the sons of Ireland that over  80 per cent, of the enlisted men are actually Irish  born while of the remainder 10 per cent, can  claim one Irish parent. This result of the preliminary rwnUi^jg'^'v'ery. isatfefaetory"when it is  home in mind that the majority of the men presenting themselves are employed hy others and  that for the moment the irksomeness and inconvenience caused by the recent mobilization of the  local militia for strike doty (the most unpleasant  duty a soldier can be called upon to perform) is  still very fresh in the minds of both employers  and employed.   The officers engaged in recruiting  have felt a very real though perhaps latent opposition on the part of the employers andnaturaily  young men with their way to make and living to  earn will not run counter to even a chance expression of opinion made by their employers in a  heedless moment.  The minimum height of the regiment was  fixed at 5 ft. 5 in. hut the stalwart Irishmen presenting themselves are all well over -this minimum  and the average height of the men enlisted is over  5 ft. 8 in. Tbe greatest enthusiasm has been displayed at the drills held up to the present and the  greatest keenness to learn the work is shown by  all ranks.   Frequent lectures are being given by  Lieutenant J. C. Thorn  the Adjutant, Capt. Dowding, on various military  matters and tbe resulting smartness and polish  will make the Irish Fusiliers of Canada second to  none in the Dominion. The regiment is to be  congratulated on the selection of its officers and  although the list is not yet completed, the nucleus of  officers for tbe>������ve companies will be sufficient to  show the type of man selected for these important  positions.  The officer eommaoding ia of course Lt.-Col. G.  W. M(-Spadden Who irequirea but little introduction to the people of tide city.  The gallant colonel  Applicants must be between the ages of 18 ahd 45,  over 5 feet 5 inches in height and physically sound*  Major M. J, Crehan  has served in the militia in Ontario before coming to the Coast and although he has not hitherto  identified himself with the militia movement in  the city, he has kept posted on military matters  and with his certificate and qualifications together  with that characteristic pertinacity it will not take  him long to regain any lost ground and to fittingly command (the battalion which will be a credit  and memorial to him in time to come. The second  in command, Major M. J. Crehan, the well-known  auditor, has had considerable military experience,  having served in the 6th Regiment D.C.O.R. for  some years and has for some time past held a  had previous military experience, but that indomitable spirit which has helped in building up  his career in other branches of activity will aid  him here and no time will be lost by Major Mc-  Master in qualifying for the important position  he is to fill. The Adjutant, Capt. Dowding, is an  officer of ripe experience, with a deep knowledge  of military work and its requirements and the  regiment is generally allowed is to be congratulated on securing Capt. Dowding's services in this  important capacity.  Capt. Dowding commenced his career as an officer in the Middlesex Regiment at home,, and was  commission in the 31at KC7^6i^^WeM&ti  where he is a most popular and zealous officer.  His transference from the cavalry to the Irish  Fusiliers has caused some little heart-burning, but  his genial Irish good nature and the fact that he  spends the principal part of his time in Vancouver, renders it desirable that he should serve in  the local regiment. The junior major is Alderman E. B. McMaater, of Kitsilano.   He has not  transferred lis a capiat* ��������������� the London Regiment,  retiring after fifteen years of service on coming  to Canada. In this Province he was warmly welcomed by the military authorities and was offered  a commission as Musketry Instructor to the 104th  Regiment at New Westminster, an appointment  he was particularly fitted to fill, having qualified  as an instructor at the home of rifle shooting, the  Royal School, of Musketry at Hythe in Kent.  Capt. Dowding holds every qualification for his  present appointment and is qualified for the letter "Q" against his name in the English Army  List which shows he has passed the promotion  examination for lieutenant-colonel in the regular  army. Capt. Dowding has further qualified in  Canada by passing the examination set for captains in the Canadian Army Service Corps and  rendered all the assistance he could to Major  Moore in organizing the 19th Company A.S.C. in  Vancouver. He has also been instrumental in  raising the new troops of B. C. Horse in Eburne,  Port Coquitlam and elsewhere and it is felt that  the Irish Fusiliers will afford him an ample field  for his energies. The Quartermaster will be Mr.  Robt. Kelly, of KeUy, Douglas & Co., a representative Irishman not least of the pioneers of our  great city. His administrative ability and knowledge of food-stuffs should make him an invaluable  officer of the regiment and the militia generally  Major E. B. McMaater  is to be congratulated that men of Mr. Kelly's  calibre are coming forward to take upon themselves the liabilities of the military forces of the 1  Crown.  The Instructor of Musketry, a most important  officer-in the training of the soldier in his principal duty, for our great Field Marshal, Earllloh-  erts, says, the first duty of a soldier is to shoot,  his second duty is to shoot and his third duty is  to shoot, and this being so, Mr. Wellington Miller,  a prominent member of the Vancouver Jlifle Association and a moat reliable rifleman would appear to be the right man in the right place. His  ripe experience should prove of great benefit to  the young shots of the regiment and Col. McSpad.  den and his senior officers will he disappointed if  they do not find their young stalwarts getting "a  place in the sun" on the Richmond ranges next  year. The Medical Officer is Dr. F. P. Patterson,  of Kitsilano, the license commissioner and a prominent citizen. Dr. Patterson has not bad previous  military experience beyond examining the men  who went from Vancouver to South Africa. His  attainments as a doctor more than qualify bim.  for the post, he is gazetted to and the regiment is  to be congratulated on his appointment. The  Rev. J. C. Madill, of Cedar Cottage, is the Chaplain of the regiment, with the rank of Captain.  The reverend gentleman has served in the militia  back in the East and is quite a type of the Church  Lieutenant M. Mallalue  Lieutenant F. T. Ross  militant. His work is so well known in this district that little can be added. As a representative  Irishman he can aid the regiment in many ways  and there is never any doubt as to his sincerity  of purpose. The company officers contain many  well known names, Capt. V. W. Odium, who commands E. Co. is a son of the well-known Prof.  Odium and has had considerable military experience. He served with credit and distinction in  the South African war with the Canadian contingent and since that date has maintained his military connections, having helped to form the crack Friday.

His knowledge of  Canadian military matters is unequalled and the  regiment can only benefit by this excellent appointment. Captain Maxwell is another officer of  a most useful character, having served with the  Imperial Army at home and in South Africa. He.  has lately left the 6th Regt. D.C.O.R. where he  commanded the Medal Company of veterans and  "A" Company can be grateful that such an active  officer has been allotted to them. Another,  leading officer is Capt. A. W. McLelan of the Mc-  Lelan Lumber Co. This gentleman has also served  in the militia in Ontario, having been an officer in  the St. Catherine's Regiment. He ia to command  "C" Co. Capt. J. B. Holden, a relative of Mr.  Wm. Holden, another of our old-time citizens,  is also gazetted to the Regiment. As a late member of the Alberta Legislature, Capt. Holden  brings a well trained and administrative mind  Captain J. B. Holden  to the problems confronting a militia officer and  in a little time "D" Co, will be taking a leading  place in the battalion.  The lieutenants are also a goodly collection of  men and their names embrace several of our most  useful citizen. The senior Bubaltern is Ml*. Geo.: A.  Grant, a partner in the well-known firm of Cowan,  Ritchie & Grant. Mr. Grant served in tbe well-  known Queen'8 Edinburgh Brigade in Scotland  and has considerable knowledge. The next senior  is also a lawyer, heing Mr. Thos. B. Harston, engaged with tbe firm of Tupper, Kitto & Wight-  man. Mr. Harstou is fully qualified for his rank,  having been a member of the Cambridge University Officers Training Corps and passing his promotion exams, before leaving the University. After a distinguished academic career Mr. llarston  joined the Lancanshire Engineers and served with  them until coming to Vancouver. Mr. Fred Bay-  liss is another well-known gentleman who has  joined this regiment, and his past service in the  Royal North West Mounted Police will make him  a very useful member, so much so that he is already noted for promotion and may be appointed  to one of the as yet unformed companies as Captain. The Colonel's son, Mr. G. Stanley MeSpadden, is also commissioned in the regiment, but  owing to his age has not yet had previous experience. His likeness to his father will ensure his  assiduous attention to his military duties.   An-  Ueuteutant Fred. Baylisa  other useful officer will be found in Mr. Maxwell  Mallalue, late of the 6th Regiment. This gentleman has served for many years in South Africa  .and was all through the siege of Mafeking with  Baden Powell. He also served in the Matabele  Rebellion with the Police. Mr. J. C. Thorn, an*  other of the subaltern officers, served with the  Territorial force in London before coming to this  city and his experiences, in his military and business capacities, will render him extremely useful  to "C" Company. He has also served in the  Legion of Frontiersmen.   Mr. F. T> Ross has been  Applications received from 8 to 10 p. m. at Headquarters, cor. William Street and Commercial Drive.  Gaptain A. W. McLelan  appointed as subaltern in Capt. Odium's company  and this ensures his rapid advancement. The  junior subaltern is Mr. D'Arcy Rowe, a son of  Dr. E. S. Rowe, our well-known publicity expert  of the Progress Club. The non-commissioned officers' names are not yet ready for publication.  So many excellent men have presented themselves  that it will be quite difficult to make the best se  lection, but the "backbone" of the regiment will  be wisely and carefully selected and the result  will prove satisfactory to all concerned. The  regiment is very proud of the fact that it is the  means in their power and it is hoped to get a  sergeant major sent out from home to undertake  the duties of this most important office. ,  The regiment at home are supporting the official  application for the affiliation of the two regiments and the adoption of the word "Royal" in  the title of our local regiment. This will be a  very great honor indeed for Vancouver and the  affiliation of the Canadian regiments with the old  country regiments is fraught with great advantages to the former as. it gives them an esprit de  corps andj an example to live up to and the old  :���������'!'.���������������������������**������������������������������������  Captain and Adjt.

The regimental motto "Faugh  a ballagh,'' "clear the way," ia also being adopted. This ia the old war cry of the famous Irish  Fusiliers on nearly every battlefield of the Empire since 1793.

As announced early in tbe season,  the Dominion Live Stock Branch bas  this year undertaken a distribution of  pure bred male animals throughout  Canada on a somewhat extensive  scale. In inaugurating this policy the  aim has beton to aid -sections where  pure bred sires were lacking and to  encourage new communities in following an intelligent system ln breeding.  This form of assistance has proven  very popular, and during the past few  months a large number of bulls and  several stallions have been placed ln  various parts of the country ln the  hands of local associations formed  specially for the purpose of handling  and maintaining them. All animals  placed remain the property of the Department of Agriculture, the local  associations assuming the responsi*  bltllty for their maintenance and management under the general supervision  of officers of the Live Stock Branch.  The distribution of bulla and stallions having been brought to a close  for this year the opportunity ls now  open to deal with applications for  boars and rams. Full Information regarding the rules governing the distribution and the procedure to be followed in forming the necessary  organisation may be had upon application to the Live Stock Commissioner, Ottawa.  It is the intention to consider only  such requests as are forwarded before  October 20th* it will be necessary for  districts desiring to take advantage of  this offer to act promptly.

"  VWMSWOT, a*,   , ,  'HIKIIIM t������ I  (Continued from Pajje 3)  "Home Rule   means   Home Rule.*  Let me here,   absolutely   aad emphatically,   repudiate   all feeling of  bitterness against my Roman 'Catholic countrymen.   I grew   op .with  them,il went to school with them, and  I have nothing but the kindest good  feeling toward them.   The Protestant  people' of Ireland have no fear of in-  tolerance on the part of their Catholic neighbors, and no desire to hold  any authority over them.   But we do  most emphatically fear and protest  against the intolerance of the system  under which    they    themselves are  bound down.   Blind obedience to tiie  Vatican is the very essence of that  system and we do not want it set up  as the Government of Ireland.  To understand thia question, wa  most remember that Irish Catholism  ia unique on the face of the earth.  In such a statement I have the support of many who should know, and  chief amongst them    is    Mr. John  Dillon, leader, with Mr. Redmond, of  the Irish Party.   Over a year ago at  Manchester,   Mr.   Dillon used these  words of  the    Irish    Catholics,  "I  assert, and it ia the glory of our race  that we are today the right arm of the  Catholic    Church    throughout   the  world.   We stand to-day, as wa have  stood throughout, without abating  one jot or Uttle of that faith, tiie  most Catholic nation on the whole  earth."   80 says P. Hugh O'Donnell,  the historian of the Nationalist Party.  So says Sydney Brooka, of England,  so says hundreds of others who have  the right tp know,    as well as the  Roman   Catholic   clergy of Ireland.  In proportion to   her   population  Ireland  has twelve  times  as  many  Archbishops and Bishops as Belgium;  over seven times as many as Catholic  Germany;  seven times  as many as  Austro-Hungary and twice as many  as Spain,   and   as O'Donnell   says,  "While the general population of Ireland has been going down by leaps  and bounds towards the abyss, the  clerical population, has been mounting cent per. cent within the same  period........While the   population   of  Ireland has deminished one-half, the  population of the Presbyteries and  convents have multiplied three-fold or  more." "What la the result for the  Irish people? "The priests are the  despotic managers of all primary  schools and can exact what homage  tbey please from the poor self-teachers whom they dominate and keep  eternally under their thumb. They  absolutely own and control all the  secondary schools with all their private profits and all their Government  grants. In the university what they  do not dominate tbey mutilate, every  appointment from dispensary doctors  to member of Parliament must acknowledge their ownership and pay  toll to their despotism." The Country  Councils must contribute patronage  according to their indications and the  Parish committees of the congested  districts    supplement    their    pocket  money.  Not less than 5 million  pounds sterling are lifted from the  Irish people every year by the innumerable agencies of clerical  suction which are at work upon all  parts of the Irish body politic and  social" and "material loss is only a  portion of the injury. The browbeaten and intimidated condition of  the popular action and intelligences,  which is necessary to this state of  things, communicates its want of  will and energy to every function of  the community." These are not the  words of a Protestant, nor a pervert;  but the words of a man who believes  in the Papal church in every point,  who accepts her teaching from  Nicaea down to the Vatican."  And they are borne out by the actual  facts of daily life. The priests act  at elections as agents for the candidates, and stand at the polling stations in their interests. They issue  commands from the altar, they dictate  from the platform and they give orders in the cabin. Last election at  Strabane, the largest town in North  Tyrone, it was suspected that a  number of Roman Catholics might  support the Unionist candidate. A  meeting of Catholics was called at  once and Father Doherty, the parish  priest, took the chair. In his speech  he said, "Any Nationalist voter who  would vote for Mr. Herdman (the  Unionist    candidate)     would   be   a  recreant to his country and would  be held responsible at the day of  judgment." In County Mayo, not  long since, when a Clerk of the Union  was to be elected at Claremorris.  the Roman Catholic clergy of the  district passed and sent this resolution to the Council: "We request the  Councillors to refuse their support to  any candidate who will not produce  a certificate of character from the  priest of his parish," and the Council  adopted the resolution, one member  suggesting that they might advertise  "no Protestant need apply." The  United Irish League is supported by  the full power of the church in spite  of its career of crime,- boycotting and  bloodshed.- The  Bishop  of  Raphoe  Redmond was last ^n New York,  Cardinal Vanuttelli, tiie Papal Legate,  sent for him, expressed his sympathy  with his work and blessed their efforts. Yet when occasion arises, more  than blessing comes from the same  source. It is easy for Mr. Redmond  to deny that the Church will interfere with the Dublin Parliament, but  when Parnell was fighting for his  political existence the Catholic Bishops ruthlessly, put him down and  scattered his most devoted followers,  and they would do the same with Mr.  Redmond the moment they felt it  necessary for their purposes. Archbishop Walsh of Dublin, has distinctly stated that, "as priests, aad independent of all human organizations,  they have alienable and indisputable  right to guide' their people in this  momentous proceeding, as in every  other proceeding where the interests  of Catholicity as well as the interests  of Irish Nationality are involved."  Not long since some members of the  Party were trying to prove the church  could not enforce her decrees, and  Rev. Father Kelly replied in a Queen's  County paper, "When Mr. Redmond  said that the laity of Ireland successfully resisted the decree (regarding  the plan of campaign) he stated what  was untrue, and what he must have  known to be untrue. But truth is not  Mr. Redmond's strong point." So  too, Cardinal Logue authoratively replied to the Party leader, "When political action trenches upon faith or  morals or affects religion the Vicar of  Christ.:���������has by Divine right authority to interfere and to enforce  his decisions. To deny thia right....  is heresy."  Now sir.I ask in all fairness in the  face of up-to-date statements like  these, in the face of such actions on  the part of the priesthood in Ireland;  in the light of the Ne Temere and  Motu Proprio decrees, in the light of  Ireland's history during the past century, when that church has gone  steadily on invading the rights of the  people, capturing education, securing  state funds for sectarian purposes,  gaining ground on every hand and  never receding an inch from any position once gained, will any man be  foolish enough to say that a Roman  Catholic Parliament at Dublin would  not be absolutely under the domination of that foreign power which hates  both England and Protestantism  with aU the intensity of the past  ages? Cardinal Manning knew better  when he said of Gladstone's measure.  "It means Rome Rule for Ireland"  and "The real Government in Ir*.  land ia in the Bishops and tht Priests"  Hundreds of Irish Catholics to-day  know, and many of them say "Ihe same.  McCarthy, an eminent Roman Catholic barrister in Dublin, who has  written several volumes on the Irish  question, and who is a devout and  loyal son of the church has said so.  These are his words, "I am forced to  the conclusion, when I consider the  evils following from sacerdotal supremacy that the Irish members in  taking money from the priests, place  themselves in the most unpatriotic  position ever ocupied by a body of  Parliamentary representatives. I am  ashamed of the Irish members, but  I cannot forget they are only what  the priests have made them" and then  Listen to it ye men of Canada! "To  endow tht priests with further power  will be to rivet more firmly the  chains of Rome on our discontented  and diminishing population." "Our  Irish politicians ought to be the  champions of the liberties of tbe laymen of Ireland- But they art selling  the birthright of their country for a  mess of pottage to the Irish priests,  who art themselves tht partners of  the ravening Italian priests at Rome."  "I am an Irishman, I am a Catholic,  I have a right to speak. I express  what hundreds of thousands of Irish  people themselves think."  Gentlemen, this Unionist opposition to Home Rule, this dread of  Romanist supremacy and intolerance  may, if you will have it so. be all  sheer nonsense and humbug, but why  did the Irish Presbyterian church  send almost 50,000 delegates to a  monster convention, to solemnly protest against Home Rule, and warn  Great Britain they would not have it?  Why did the whole Methodist church  of Ireland do the same? Why did the  Church of Ireland assemble its  strength in Dublin to pronounce  against it with all vehemence? Why  has the Congregational Church, the  Quakers and the Baptists of Ireland  all taken similar action? These men  are not fools, they have spent their  lives there, they are face to face with  the actual conditions, surely they  know what they are talking about.  I will put to every Canadian who believes in Irish Home Rule and scouts  the idea of intolerance on the part of  a Roman Catholic Parliament, just  these three questions, from Rev. Dr.  Prenter, of Dublin:  (1) Is there a single instance in  all history past or present where a  Roman Catholic Legislature has ever  dealt fairly witb a Protestant minority?  (2) Is there anything in the past  history or present condition of Ireland to indicate that it would act fair-  is one of its treasurers, and at its  local meetings the chairman is usually 1*3" by tiie Irish Protestant minority?  the priest of tlte parish.    When Mr.     (3)   Would you yourself be will  ing to submit to a aixnflar experiment?  to do it?  Bnt yoo say the Home Rule Bill  provides adequate safeguards lor tha  rights, and religion of the minority  Do you believe that, in the light of  what I have already said tonight?  What are the safeguards? A few  paper restrictions on the Irish legislature. But Ireland is to be governed by an Irish Executive responsible  only to an Irish Parliament and your  restrictions on the Legislature may  remain a dead letter. "But there is  to remain the supremacy of the Imperial Parliament." Yes, on paper,  just as it is in the case of Canada.  The Imperial Parliament is supreme  over Canada today, but how long will  Canada stand the suggestion of a veto  on any of her laws by the British  Parliament? How long did Natal  stand Bntfish Interference in 1I08,  whan tht Imperial Parhamsnt sought  to exercise the right reserved to it in  Natal'a constitution, and simply asked  postponement of the execution of  certain natives condemned to death  for rebeUionr As soon as the request  was made for postponement and investigation the Natal ministry resigned, no other Government could  be formed; the Imperial Government  surrendered and the natives were  executed. Even Sir Edward Grey admits the Imperial powers could only  be used in extreme cases, which  simply; means never at all, as John  Redmond actually demanded in Gladstone's time.  What are the proposed safeguards?  The rights of minorities are to be  fully guarded? How? Mr. Redmond  some time ago said of a certain  minority, "I fear they must be overborne by the strong hand." Mr.  Dillon has. more than once said that  "in the time of our power we will  remember who were the people's  friends and who were their enemies  and deal out reward to the one and  punishment to the other."  Listen 1 gentlemen. When the local  Govt, bill1 was brought in, Mr. John  Redmond roundly assured the. world  that the Protestants of Ireland would  be treated in all fairness and given "a  generous share of representation On  the Councils."'.  No sonar warthe Act in fore* than  __u_______ki_> ��������� :���������>__ ���������  ._.__-     _���������_'���������_ : __������������������ mm  j-rotestanta were everywnsre aquae  out and the Coanc&s were turned into   political   organisations.   Orders  were issued that no man should be el  ected to the Councils unless he were a  member of the U.LL.; pledges of such  membership were even demanded;  and, so early as 1902, Mr. Redmond  boasted tbat they had in the Coun  cits "a weapon,   the   full force of  which he   believed    was    not yet  thoroughly understood by the English Govt, or themselves."   He said  tbe  county    and    district  Councils  formed a "network   of   Nationalist  organisations all over Ireland." And  on Dec. 15th, 1909. "We have before  us the best chance Ireland ever had of  tearing up and trampling under foot  the infamous Act   of    Union."    A  sample speech made at an election  in the City of Sligo, where the Protestants pay more than half the rates,  and which has a Corporation of 24  members.   These art tht words of a  City Councillor, "Art tilt Tories of  this town to walk over the Roman  Catholics of Sligo?  You have 24 members in the Corporation���������-24 Roman Catholics, thank  God! I ask you again to vote on behalf of the Corporation, and to show  to the Tories thst the town of Sligo  is alive and doing, and that we will  not permit them to put up their  snouts to cry down the Nationalists  of this town." What is the result of  today? All over the three Provinces  outside Ulster there are 719 councillors and of these 16 only are Protestants, though the Protestant people  of Ireland own and control perhaps  nine-tenths of the business interests  and property.  Listen again. When the Royal  University of Ireland was extinguished at the bidding of the Roman  Hierachy and the Irish Universities  Act of 1908 was brought in by Mr.  Birrell the Govt, absolutely pledged  itself that no portion of the money  granted would ever be applied to sectarian purposes. They safeguarded  things in the Bill and the Charter  and what has happened? Three years  ago its Chancellor, the R. C. Archbishop Walsh demanded that a chapel  for Roman Catholics be built out of  its funds. Maynooth, the priests  training college is affiliated with it.  The philosophy taught is that of the  Roman Catholic church, Gaelic is  compulsory and the University is  Roman Catholic from top to bottom.  In June 1912 at Dundalk, Cardinal  Logue, speaking at St. Mary's college said. "England never gave us  any boon that they did not put a  crook in.    They gave us what they  hoped to be a Pagan University.   No matter what obstacles the Nonconformists of England may have inserted in the- Constitution of tl������e  University to keep it. from being irad?  Catholic, we will make it Catholic in  spite of them."  Listen once more about these sale-  guards and I am done.    Five years  ago last May a young Presbyterian-  woman in Antrim town was married  Rev. R. M Gil-  by V friend of  mo������r, f leading  to a Roman Catholic named Alex.  McCstm.  The marriage waa register-.  ed in the Dublin office and the law  of Britain  said they were married.  They fived m Belfast happily and"  peaceaaty tiB 1910, when tha Roman  Catholic church, in the person bf one  of its priests, stepped into their home  in defiance of the law of the land,  declared them   unmarried, living in  sin, and their two infant children iU-  cgitmate.  Eventually the husband deserted his wife, took away her children, removed the furniture out of her  home     and     left''    her     desolate  Although she petitioned the Viceroy  at Dublin, although the Protestant  churches of Belfast appealed on her.  behalf, the Viceroy haa simply replied that the Govt, cannot do any*  thing and tiie whole power of tha  British Law cannot find her husband  or restore her children to the woman  ao cruelly outraged in this 20th een-,  tury,   and when the matter came up  in Imperial Parliament instead bf up*  holdiog the law and denouncing thia  outrage on motherhood and a woman's happiness,   Mssrs.    Dillon and  Devlin   sought     to     blacken   the  woman's     character     and   sneered  at   the   whole   thing   as got   up  for political purposes.   Gentlemen, I  ask you if these things are done at  present in the green tree of Imperial  Legislation and control,  what will  happen in the dry tree of Romanist  power in a Dublin Parliament?   But  further, the laws of Britain declare  that any man guilty of crime, whether  his creed,   or   class   or profession  shall he amenable to the cohrts of  justice and be   tried   for his crime.  But Pius X has defied this law, and  issued a "Motu Proprio" decree in  which he    declares   that   any and'  every priest of the Roman Catholic  Church is above the law of the land;  and no one can cite him before a civil  court, no matter what crime he haa  committed, under pain of the Papal  anathema.   Mr. Chairman, does anyone who knows' the facts wonder at-  the opposition of Protestant Ireland  to any change which win rob them  of the protection   of   the   Imperial  Parliament and place them at tha  tender    mercies    of    an    executive  dominated   by   such   a   tyrannical  power?   I say that in view of audi  experiences   as   these, it is nothing-  short of effrontery to ask sny section  of British subjects to believe in the  value of any safeguards that can ha  proposed in the face of such dangers.  The true safeguarding of the civil  and religious rights   of   Protestant  Irishmen is simply to jet them alone,  they ask no further guarantees than  they enjoy at   present   under the  Union with Britain���������the same civil  rights   that all enjoy wherever tbe  Union Jack is regarded ss the symbol  of freedom and not simply as a party  emblem.   Irishmen have bad a noble  share in building   up the mightiest  Empire earth hss*Jcuown.   In many a  perilous time have Irish Protestants  given to Britain their hest treasure  and richest blood to make her great-  It was Irish Protestants chiefly that  saved India from the Crown in the  days of the Mutiny. It was Irish Protestants who formed the first regiments under Irish Wellington in the  death  struggle  with  the  might  of  France.  It was Irish Protestants under Irish  Roberts who turned the tide in favor  of Britain in the Boer war. It has  been Irish statesmen like Nicholson  and Montgomery and Mayo and  Dufferin who have lifted the flag of  Empire higher in the greatest of her  Dominions beyond the seas. It was  Irish Protestants (who formed the  bone and sinew of Ireland herself in  her struggles against anarchy, against  religious intolerance, against industrial stagnation, and prevented the  disintegration of the Empire at the  very centre and seat of its power.  With a great price have Irish Protestants helped to win this freedom  and built up this glory and shall  England cast them off today and deprive them of an equal share in this  greatness, at the bidding of the very  men who boasted their treason at  every gathering of Britain's enemies;  cheered in triumph in Britain's Parliaments at every defeat of the British  arms, and have since built statues to  the memory of the traitors who  fought against their own loyal countrymen, their Queen and the Empire?  If so then England may well remember the weighty and righteous words  of Goldwin Smith, "Wt shall bow  our heads in shame unutterable, and  be unable again to look a foreigner  in the face if Mr. Gladstone or anyone else succeed in persuading tiie  nation to commit so foul, so dastardly  and at the same time so suicidal a  crime as the abandonment of the  Loyalists of Ireland."  j.

PERCT SOUL.  Dated Aug. 12, 1913.  SOUTH VANCOUVER  South Vancouver, Sept. 29.���������The  need tor the establishment of gas and  electric light plants, as well as purchasing industrial sites; in order to  attract industries to South Vancouver,  were strongly emphasized in an address be.fore the Board of. Trade by  Reeve Kerr this evening.  . The reeve announced that the council had decided to offer a further inducement- by reducing the water  charge to proposed factories. A proper water distributing system was an  essential to the "Industrial Suburb"  proposed for South Vancouver.  The reason the council were now  preparing bylaws providing for the  purchase of land along the Fraser  River was that prices there were low  now and property could be bought at  prices which would soar as soon as  the financial, situation cleared. Speak*  Ing of rates at which it is proposed to  sell electric light and power generated  by the municipal plant, the reeve compared light charges in all of the large  Canadian cities east of Vancouver.  The minimum charge made in these  places was 10 cents a kilowatt hour,  as compared with a minimum of 11  cents in South Vancouver.  Mr. R. G. Hodgson, president-of the  board, was complimented on his appointment, gazetted today, a_ a member of the North Fraser Harbor Commission.  GRANDVIEW  The Ward IV Ratepayers' Association met in Astley's Hall, corner of  Woodland Drive and Venables Street,  on Monday evening, and entered a  vigorous protest against the recent In*  crease in rates of the British Columbia Electric Co. Resolutions : were  passed protesting against the action  and reaffirming the necessity for the  city to take steps to take over the B.  C. Electric Company's lines, at the  conclusion of the present charter, calling on the city aldermen to so embarrass all future applications from  the British Columbia Electric Company for concessions from the city  that the company would be Induced  to revert to the old schedule of fares  and calling on the Provincial Government to enforce its recent regulations  requiring additional equipment on the  lines.  Wants to See Yau  Chocolates  ID it Satisfy  Chocolates are like perfumes  for the reason that if you dou't  get the best you are sure to be dissatisfied, and you feel as though  you had been robbed. There are  several different factors that go  to make good Chocolates: the  quality of the filling, the quality  of -the coating and long experience. "We do not carry everybody's chocolates. "We have  picked ont two or three lines  which experience has taught us  are the best. Those lines are  Neilson's or Moir'a in packages  and one of our local firms for  bulk goods. "We ask you to try  these lines, and further: any time  you get a box of Neilson's or  Moir's from us and find they are  not exactly up to the mark, we  would be glad if you would return  them and we will give you another box. That indicates just how  much we think; of these goods���������  for we have never yet seen a box  that was not right.  If you are fond of Chocolates  try either of these lines and we  feel sure you will enjoy them.

At the  meeting of the City Council on Monday evening a letter was read from  the Attorney-General stating that if  the council retained office to the end  of the year the government would be  prepared to expedite a private bill to  validate the election of this year's  council during the time the council  had carried on operations ln WIS. This  would be at the expense of the city.  Councillor Vance queried whether  tt would be better to go on on those  lines or resign. The financial end of  the matter, be said, was one of the  strong points, but tbe Attorney-General did not consider this would make  any difference. De asked for tbe  opinion of the rest of the aldermen.  If it would make no difference to tbelr  financial position be recommended  tbey go ahead.  On tbe motion of Councillor Pilling  it was decided that the council go  to the end of the year.  The city solicitor reported that iii  eonnecttpn with the sale of-the old  city hall for 193,650 to the Dominion  Government, he saw no reason whj  the funds should not be utilised foij  municipal purposes.  The Board of Railway Commission^  ers wrote, under date September l������j  that the C.P.R. had not informed  board when It intended starting wor  on the North 8hore line.
