No. .36.  t is the duty of all electors who have the interests of the city at  eart to see that neither Walter Hepburn nor Joseph Martin is  elected as Mayor.  X'X'3.1  r- * %*,  rXX  ������1  [LOCAL MEMBERS WILL  AID WOMEN'S FRANCHISE  Messrs. G. E. Tisdall, Minister  of Public Works, A. H. B. Mac-  , go wan  and  Dr. McGuire,  local  members of the provincial legislature, received a representative  deputation of local women prominent in the suffrage movement  late    last ~ week.    Mrs.   Ralph  Smith   spoke   for  the   Women's  Forum on suffrage,   while   Miss  Gutteridge      represented       the  Trades and Labor Council men  voters, asking the extension  of  suffrage to .women. , f _    "   ,*  ,   Mrs. Smith pleaded that -women  j: be granted the franchise as mothers. They needed the ballot to  [Tgive expression to their wishes  'and. desires in regard to ���������domestic legislation, as upon such sub-  I jectsthey feel more intensely and  have more interest and more information than the fathers of the  ^province.  Miss Helen Guttridge spoke as  the representative of the Trades  "and Labor 'Council. Sle1 said she  I had  been instructed < to express  'the desire- of this .body of men  I voters,   that   the franchise     be  [granted to women, the change in  'conditio^ due to the European  I*1 war  making it   imperative that  I women should control and provt-eet the conditions under vvmch  t .������ -      - 4. i    V  'they labor. .Women, were ,,domg  lUheir "share  in   the world war,  jfnot only in connection with Red  'Cross work, but also in the field  of labor, by setting men free to  serve   their   country   otherwise.  She  pointed  out  that not   only  were the  women of. Great Britain Supplying at their country's,  call the place of men, but    already such call  was being seriously considered in Canada, that  British Columbia might soon follow the lead of Toronto, where  steps were already being taken  for the same end.  She then    put   the   following  N  1OTHING will more quickly undermine the confidence of bond buyers in the eity 's  securities than the diversion of bylaw funds.     Walter  Hepburn,  when - he   was  chairman of finance, was the worst sinner the city has been afflicted with in this  practice.   He diverted the funds of the morgue, bylaw  to the police court building, and  then made a deficit of $125,000 in the cost of the building.   He meddled with the plans so  much that the building is a complete botch.  Mr. Hepburn, in spite of his protests to the contrary, is the enemy of the wage-earner.  He has done more to keep down the wages of his own and civic employees than any other  man in the city. He gloated over the fact that men have to work half a day for two meals  and a bed, and declared that "at last the city was getting value for its money.'  > . Temperance people should ask themselves how they like the idea of the owner of the  Castle Hotel sitting as chairman of the license board. If Hepburn is elected he will occupy  precisely that position, for he is the owner of the Castle Hotel, which brings him in $600  a month rent. Without a license it wouldn't bring him half, that sum. So he has a uiiect,  personal financial interest in the Castle Hotel  license.  -  Vancouver cannot afford the disintegrating and disturbing presence of Joseph Martin in  the city hall, no matter how amusing it might be. ���������  Next year's council should give all its time Jo the business of the city and' not to the  vaudeville and squabbling which Joseph Martin will be sure to produce.  Misdirected cleverness in the city council would turn it into a bear garden, and make the  city the laughing stock of the country. And that is just what would happen if Joseph  Martin were   mayor. _.  There are three other candidates.   In alphabetical order they are:   ' ?  -  ���������    X , < . > -   -    -  .

The publishers propose to make the Call a paper of interest to the citizens of Mount Pleasant, Fairview, Grandview,  ��������� South Vancouver and Burnaby. ,  We propose to give the residents of these districts a service  covering local news not usually touched by the big dailies.  It is to be a community paper with community interest, not  ��������� only publishing the news of these districts, but discussing  their needs and problems with a view to improving conditions.'   '"���������..''���������     ���������������������������'���������-'' :."   .  A cordial invitation is" extended  to  the  secretaries  of all  ; clubs and associations, both church, and  secular, to  furnish  the Call with news of their doings and comings and goings,  hot only"of.the organizations,   but   of   their members   individually. ' JJ -.  We especially invite the co-operation of the ministers of  the various churches to send in items of interest regarding  r their church work.     In vthis respect the Call knows no creed  and all are welcome. X  ; We want everyone from False Creek to the Fraser to  feel that this paper is his or her particular interest, and that  V it will be glad to chronicle whatever, is of interest to V the  readers and their friends. X V  V All copy must be in hot later than Thursday noon. The  paper is published, regularly now' oh Friday morning. This  last rule will be rigidly adhered to.  ...-: The publishers contemplate many .other improvements,  which will be added from time to time as our support will  warrant.       ;*  McCpNNELLS, PUBLISHERS  (Limited):      :     ^  At a meeting held in the public  hall, Edmonds, last Friday"night  at the call of Reeve Fraser, to  organize a Burnaby. branch of  the Returned Soldiers' Aid Commission, Mr. Dan Mowat, of McKay, was elected president, and  Mr. Fred L. Macpherson, engineer for Burnaby, was made honorary secretary-treasurer. Reeve  Fraser was named honorary president. The committee selected is  composed t of Messrs. J. R. Wilson, Edmunds; Mr. Bearne, McKay; G. Warne, F. A. Brown,  A. S. Neilson, J. T. Charlton, A.  H. Lewis and Mrs. A. H. Lewis,  Edmonds.  Mr. Mowat brought forward the  proposals of-the Fenian Raid Veterans' Association, of Vancouver,  which embodied a_ scheme along  similar lines to what the Dominion government adopted after  the raid, namely, granting land  to the returned soldiers for settlement purposes. But it was suggested that it was not advisable  to make grants of 160 acres, but  of smaller living areas as 20 to  40 acres. The meeting resolved to  support such proposals.  A meeting will be held shortly  when it"is proposed to have members ��������� of the provincial commission, which includes Mayor Gray,  of^ -New Westminster; Mayor  Planta of Nanaimo, and Mayor  Stewart, of Victoria, present, and  address   the   meeting.  The secretary .was empowered  to make a.register of returned  soldiers, and a reception committee will be appointed.  sixty men under Lieut.

Gwyer, formerly in  the engineering service of the  C. P. R., and lately in charge of  the C. N.

The city councnl has decided upon this step following  out the suggestion of Premier  Bowser in his recent letter to  Mayor Taylor.  The council were of the opinion  that a soldier's property should  be protected during his absence.  It was pointed out that many  soldiers would be unable to redeem their property for some  considerable time after their return, but on the advise of City  Solicitor Jones, the time was set  at one year after the declaration  of peace.  The council, at the same time,  voiced its opposition to the suggestion of Premier Bowser that  an extension be granted in which  to redeem property from one  year to two years.  An������������������' interesting sidelight on the  condition of Germany as to food  supplies .is"afforded :by the fact  that practically all of Holland's  herring catch for the season has  been sold, to Germans at twenty-  nine dollars a barrel, as compared with seven to ten dollars  DO NOT LOSE  YOU* OmZBN8.W*  u  ruling that Americans *who en  list under a qualified oath in the  fighting forces of foreign powers  shall not "be regarded Upon ap-  plication for readmission to the  United States as having lost  American citizenship because of  such enlistment is outlined at  length in a letter which Secretary Wilson of the-department  of labor has sent to Representative Patten  in  New York.  The secretary wrote in reply to  a request for information concerning the readmission of men  who had left the country to serve  in the Canadian armies. He  pointed out that no distinction  was made in favor of those returning from Canadian enlistment, but all persons coming under the outlined interpretation  of the law were admitted regardless of what country they had  served. He added thatjhe would  be glad to see a test case instituted to determine finally the correctness of the bureau's interpretation.  >r.m  *-t|  I j xi  x --_ /   Jf  f ISm  y .^41  ���������������      U>.4-^t',<-|  XI *k  - '  . f-f-l  pr--rtr  ..'.'J  ,T9  "X\J  "*.' if ��������� <? 1  OFFICERS' CLASS  Fifteen provisional lieutenants  from the 104th regiment, five  from the 121st Battalion and five  from the 72nd Highlanders of  Vancouver, together with 49 non-  coms, and men from the 131st  battalion and 4 from the 121st  will attend the military school  for subalterns and non-coms.,  which opened in New Westminster on Monday under ihe direction of Major G.

'  jj        _ ������ . *  Reeve Fraser, of Burnaby, took  the stand that the company secured the franchise on the undertaking to give reasonable and  adequate transportation facilities  which had induced many people  to settle on the line and invest  considerable money. All businesses were showing decreased earn^  ings, and it was up to the B. C.  E. R. to take its share of the suffering caused by depression, instead of expecting its patrons to  take it all.  _Mr.~Wrignt, "of Broadview, suggested a shuttle service, half  hourly, between Commercial Dr.'  in Vancouver and Sapperton, but  Gen. Supt. Murrin replied that  this would be unworkable as there  is some through business which  would be lost if people were compelled to transfer twice    '  Asked by Mr. McCaul as to  what would be considered adequate service, Mr. Leith suggested resumption of the former service until 9.30 a.m. and from-4:30  p.m. until midnight, the schedule  between 9..30 a.m. and 4.30 p.m.  being on the two-hour basis. This  seemed to meet the ideas of a  large proportion of those present.  HOUSE  FOR  SOLDIERS' WIVES  The municipality of South Vancouver has rented a large house  to be used for the South Van-  vancouver Soldiers and Sailors  Mothers' and Wives' Red Cross  Society, at the corner of Forty-  seventh and Chester Street. It  will .also contain an office for  Mrs. McDonald, as war fund investigator. An appeal is made  for the loan of furniture to fit  the house up for the purpose.  The society owes its origin to  Mrs. Jennie McDonald, formerly  police matron in South Vancouver, and later at the beginning  of. the war, appointed investigating officer for 'the Patriotic Fun. emmemmeEwm.  wnm  Wednesday, January 12, 191C  PRUSSIAN MERCY  As Demonstrated ia. the Murder  of Edith Cavell  (Felix Shay, in the Fra)  Edith Cavell, an English nurse,  in Brussels, was sentenced by a  Prussian Drumhead Court-Martial at five p.m.' one afternoon  and shot against the wall at two  a.m. next morning. A squad of  twelve armed men faced her.  When came the word "Fire"  from the Pruss in command, the  guns spoke and every man shot'  wild. At short range but one bullet slightly wounded her, and  that., was an accident���������one German soldier's eqes were blurred  with tears. She fainted and fell.  Then the bastardized descendant of Attila, the Pruss in charge,  whipped his pistol from his belt  and skilfully placing it in the ear  of the prostrate woman, blew out  her brains.  Did this report come from the  English or the French? No! It is  taken from the neutral Amsterdam (Holland) Telegraaf, and no  one shall deny its truth but the  damnable barbarian, the ferocious Pruss, her murderer. The  word of Poe's Orang-Autang  would be received with as much  grace.  Edith  Cavell was not advised  Mrs. Irene H.

She was not granted the  right of a counsel of. her own  selection. No clergyman of her  own faith or tongue was permitted to console her in her last  hour. No, nor was she permitted  to discuss her ''crime" with any  but her accusers.  She was dragged into court  (save the word!) by Prussian  soldiers; tried (God help us) by  Prussian Military Judges; defended by a -Prussian lawyer,  "who was in touch with the proper authorities"; and nine hours  afterward, by the light of the  gibbous moon, was shot by a  Prussian assassin.  There was no mercy, there was  no trial, there was no justice,  there was no thought for that  Mighty Vengeance to come. It  was the uncontrolled assault of  an animal which has tasted  blood!  Her "cirme" was that she nur  sed back to health English and  French and Belgian Jboys���������Ger  man boys, too���������and when recovered, she helped them to leave  desolated Belgium���������and who  would not help a carrion crow  to leave that barren land, seared  by the winds of Hell! That was  her "crime."  She was miles and miles from  the front. She assisted convales  cing soldiers to get "backhome."  Her work   was for   humanity-  and when the worst is said, she  inflicted no injury on the Prus  sian army but a theoretic injury.  Sons who have such mthers  speak of their qualities reverent  ly. Honorable young men seek  sweethearts whose faith and  courage and loyalty offer as  much. Civilized generals reprimand kindred offenders with a  tear in their eye and a quaver  in their voice and a thought for  their own dear women at home  who; placed in the same position  would do exactly the same. Savages are given pause by such unselfishness, such willingness to  help and care for others.  But the Bosches���������"Gott im  Himmel!"  They burn, defile, destroy, butcher, while we, pathetically, inclined to Play Fair, would yield  them provocation.

Across the sky, the ill-omened  Prussian Eagle _ wheels and  screams for Victory, and up  from below rises the gargling  guttural of the "Conquerors"  who wade through blood���������these  marauding Pruss, who in one  short year have destroyed more  of civiliation than the great Germans of all time have contributed. They flounder through blood  and lies, they flaunt broken  treaties, they speak of the "necessity" of the tragedy of-the  "Lusitania," they glorify the destruction of cathedrals and historic relics, they bombard unprotected towns, they drop bombs  on tenements, shoot defenceless  women against the wall, and  sing���������sing "Deutschland uber  Alles!"  But no���������not that! Not that!  The Prussians may capture  Paris, they may blow up London,  they may occupy Petrograd, and  effect a union with their true  brother, the Turk.

British Columbia metal ;may be  used by the British government  in the manufacture of guns, according to Mr. W. B; Timms, of  Ottawa, a mining engineer, especially commissioned by the  federal government at the request of the Imperial government, to inquire into and investigate the molybdenite- deposite  of British Columbia.' Mr. Timms  arrived in this city last week,  and on Monday last journeyed to  Victoria, where he met Mr. William Fleet Robertson, provincial  mineralogist, and discussed with  him plans for a thorough examination of all known deposits of  molybdenite in this province.  Molybdenite is the ore which  produces molydehum and ferro-  molybdehum is the product  which, Mr. Timms states, is now  very much in demand by the  British government, and by all  other belligerents for the manufacture of. big gun linings.  "Molybdenum is of such composition that when merged with  ordinary sleel, it forms an alloy  which is������of great value," stated  Mr. Timms: "It offers great resistance to the corrosive effects  of the big blasts in the large  cannon. It is used for other purposes as well, notably for tool  steel, which cuts even nickel  chrome steel."  Continuing, Mr. Timms said:  '' You can understand the importance of obtaining or at least locating all deposits of molybdenite when you realize that the  Canadian government has placed  an embargo on the exportation  of molybdenum. I can.tell you  nothing as to the government's  plans or intentions toward the  deposits of molybdenite in British Columbia. There- is said to  be a deposit of molybdenits at  Stave Lake, of what extent or  value I cannot say. '  "The best deposit so "far as we  know now is at tne Molly mine  near Salmo, in the upper country. Molybdenite has been taken  out there and shipped to a con  centrator at Denver, practically  the only place where the ore is  treated in the United1 States.  "Since the embargo no molybdenite has been exported. Besides these deposits I have mentioned there are deposits on  Vancouver Island and before I  return.to the mainland I will inspect those prospects.  - "We have good deposits of the  metal in Quebec and in Ontario.  In Ontario the government has  erected a small experimental  plant where the ore is concentrated before it is sent to the,refinery. Molybdenite ore is very  low.grade in the sense that the  proportion of molybdenum to  sulphide and other elements is  veryc low indeed. But the metal  is very valuable and deposits  running as low as 1 per cent, are  valuable deposits indeed.  "I hope to secure valuable information for the government  from my trip through British  Columbia, and I might say that  I hope to learn of every proved  deposit in the country though I  am not interested in the commercial development of these properties and am not here as the  agent of. any mining syndicate  I am simply here to investigate,  as I say. What the result of  my investigations will be I cai*  not say, at the present time."  The manufacture of large num  bers of big and small calibre  guns in British arsenals has resulted in a strong demand for  molybdenum and some time ago  there were reports of some activ  ity in properties believed to contain deposits  of molybdenite  Actual development work was  undertaken on a little property  in an interior valley, but because of the lack of necessary  equipment this work was discontinued. In the meantime the  Molly mine is the only kno^vn  producer.  Molybdenum occurs.in molybdenits as MMS2. Mr. Timms  stated that .possibly the ore after being concentrated to' rid  it pi its large proportion of useless rock, would be shipped east  to a refinery. At the present time  one of the only very small number of refineries is located in  England. The ore resembles iron  ore in some ways. It is superior to nickel.  VANCOUVER'S    TAXATION  EXPERIENCE  i i.  Much ado has been made in  certain quarters over the fact  that the city of Vancouver has  had a little backset in its phenomenal development. The truth  of the matter is that Vancouver  has passed through an era of  speculation, common to all rapidly growing cities, and must  now readjust its affairs to a  growth along more normal lines.  The fact that this British Columbia city approached the Single-tax system to the extent of  exempting personal property and  improvements from local taxes  had nothing to do. with the present slump, except that in stimulating prosperity it intensified  and quickened the , speculative  fever. The result that has come  about was. long ago predicted,  and the ��������� citizens of Vancouver  were urged to guard against it,  not by stopping the city's commercial growth by returning to  the old system of taxing the products of labor, but by raising the  tax on land values to a point  that, would forestall speculation.  The people of Vancouver, however, were not ready to go that  far in the tax experiment, and  so they have had to-pay the penalty. J  ���������     "       c     _  Two important points areXon-  spicuous in the present situation. One, according to the state  ment of Louis D. Taylor,~mayor  of .Vancouver, in the Ground  Hog, is:  This enormous addition to office buildings, apartment houses  and residences brought about a  corresponding reduction in rents  of about fifty per cent., and proved this contention���������that holding  land out of use in cities increases rentals and real estate values.  The other point is the Mayor's  statement regarding the public's  estimation of the system of taxation. Mr. Taylor says:  The city of Vancouver, like  many individuals, has had to curtail its expenditures in every  direction, but notwithstanding  this,Xwhen_ rthe__ councilbrought  down the estimate for the "current year, and struck the tax  rate, the resolution to exempt  improvements carried for the  sixth time without a dissenting  vote. This fact should be sufficient to counteract any reports  that Vancouver has suffered because of its single tax method.  Every municipality except two  in British Columbia exempts improvements ; the British Columbia government does the same,  and imposes a wild land tax.  The last legislature passed a  measure which comes into effect  within five years, to raise all  revenues of the province from  land and natural resources, and  retains only one other tax, that  on incomes, which are exempt up  to   $1,500.   .  The advocates of taxes on industry���������with the exemption of  monopoly 'and privilege���������will  have to look elsewhere than to  Vancouver for evidence to bolster up their parasitical system.  ���������Stoughton Coohey, in "The  Public."  A certain college president wore side  whiskers. ! Whenever he suggested removing them, there was a division of  opinion in the family. One morning  he entered his wife's dressing-room,  razor in hand, with his . right cheek  shaved  Bmooth.  "How do you like it, my dear?"  he asked. "If you tiiink it looks well,  I will shave the other side, too.���������Facts  and Fancies.  Use the  one  This is the kind of weather when the  telephone is invaluable.

THE ABSURDITY OF "KULTUR"  IP A PRIVATE INDIVIDUAL went about  his village bragging about his great achievements  which every one knew to be imaginary, he would  be regarded with amused tolerance. If he started a. campaign to get his neighbors to accept h's  theories and methods he might be argued with  and silenced, but the chances are no one would  pay1 much  attention  to  him.  But, if he started in to beat up his neighbors  ' and force his culture upon them with guns and  swords and pistols, he would be, promptly locked  up in the dangerously insane .ward.  On a bigger scale, that is the position of the  German pretensions to "Kultur" and the Kaiser's avowal to force Prussian "Kultur" upon  the world.  That their claims to "Kultur" which in their  sense, means material advancement, are absurd  are easily seen when one reflects for a- moment  upon the origin of the things upon which the  material advancement of the world during the  last hundred years is based.  Through Watt Scotland gave the world the  steam engine. Through Stevenson Scotland again -  gave the steam railroad.    The American, Fulton, applied  steam to navgiation.   The United  States, through Morse,*, gave  the electric  telegraph.    Edison invented the incandescent light,  also/the phonograph and the storage battery.  * Canada,  through .Bell, gave  the world  the'  ' telephone. * Italy, with Marconi;' provided the  wireless telegraphy. ,  France, with her Pasteur,  has given the world knowledge of bacteriology  through which antisepticsurgery has been developed.     England  has  given  the  World the  greatest systems of finance, commerce and colonization.    England has done'more to develop  native races and to spread the gospel of freedom  and self-government than any other nation in  the world.   Germany jas a colonier has been a  failure.   Only tyranny and oppression have followed in the wake of her efforts at colonization.  * A}\ the great , basic discoveries ,which have  contributed to the world's real progress have  been made outside of Germany. Germany has  been quick to seize them, adapt them and commercialize them. She has discovered means of  utilizing by-products in a manner possible only  with a people of such inborn thrift 'as that race  .possesses. The genesis*of any claims which  Germany has'to, kultur is, thrift. Thrift is a valuable asset in the everyday processes of accum-  culating wealth, but,it will not uplift the soul  of humanity as will the music of the Italians,  the poetry of a Shakespeare, or Tennyson or  Longefellow, or the arts of the French, expressed in sculpture and painting. Nor will it point  to the way of a life everlasting as will the  burning fervor of. a Knox, a Wesley, or a Spurgeon.  In none of the higher fields of human develop  ment, in the arts or in true mental or spiritual  culture has Germany established any claims  whatever.  Internal conditions in Germany are causing  much anxiety in Berlin; Even with the rigid  censorship that has been set upon news, it has  been, impossible to disguise the seriousness ofthe  food situation-r-acute already long before the  winter season is over. No gold is circulating,  says an Amsterdam report, and only fear of the  government prevents ��������� opposition to use of currency.- v'.,-   '".  So enthusiastic has Prince Abdul Halim, heir  to the Turkish throne., become oyer the military  achievements, of the Germans, he has discarded,  the Turkish uniform, and now wears only the  uniform pf a German colonel.

There were 125  warships in line, the crew of each manning the  rail, shouting "Banzai'.' as the Emperor passed  -by. .'During'the review,'a fleet of hydro-planes  circled above the warships.

STEEL SHIP BUILDING  BY STARTING to form a joint stock com-,  pany to build ships on this coast the Manufactures', Asociation have, taken the'first definite]  * 4      ' .. ' , 1  step towards realization of a long cherished and]  very practical ambition of the business community of this coast.  '- . We do1 not presume to ,offer advice on thej  question of the comparative advantages of wood-j  en and steel ships.    When two such experienced and capable men as Capt. Copp and Capt.  Stewart hold widely divergent opinions it would]  be presumptious for a mere "land-lubber',' newspaper to offer advice.  Still, there is this to be -said in favor of'  building steel ships, that such an industry would  be the neucleus and basis of many other important industries. It would necessitate the manufacture of steel, for instance, on this coast. That  again involves mining and smelting of. iron ore.  With a start made in iron mining, smelting.and  steel manufacture) other industries will spring  up on all sides. Structural steel for buildings,  bridges, rails, etc.* would naturally follow.  Again, steel ships are steam driven and require engines, boilers and much other machinery  which in turn require the employment of large  plants with much capital and many workers.  Steel shipbuilding is an industrial hen which  gathers under her wings innumerable chicks pf  industry which in turn grow up and hatch other  chicks of industry.  And the entire fabric, when developed will  have its root and base in the great iron ore  deposits of the province. There is food for  thought in this for Hon. Lome Campbell, as  Minister,  of   Mines. < -  The University of Muenster has conferred" the  honorary, degree of Doctor of Laws en General  Von Gissihg, German Governor-General of Belgium.

THE OLD HOMESTEAP  By a rare coincidence, the first scene  taken in the old Durland Biding Academy, which was acquired for studio  purpo������es by the Famous Players Film  Company was the opening of "The  Old Homestead," the celebrated rural  classic, which for over thirty yeara  .served to endear itself and its star  and author. Denman Thompson, to  _ the -American- public.    - - -  - - ���������  It^ in doubtful if any other piay is  as well known to the masses as "The  Old Homestead," with the possible ex-  ception of "Uncle Tom's Cabin." It  is one of the few plays which the  gre.it motion picture public knows as  it knows its alphabet. And for that  reason it will be appreciated by the  puohc more than any sensational adaptation  which   has  ever been  made.  Denman Thompson's old home, will  be . used, by permission of his son,  Frank Thompson, from whom the  rights of the play wttre obtained, as  the setting for the rural portion of the  story. The outlying districts of the  typically quaint New England town  in which it is situated will also be  called upon to furnish additional rustic atmosphere.  It was'in 187.5,. while incapacitated  by n severe attack of rheumatism,  that Denman Thompson conceived the  idea of "The Old Homestead," which  he first wrote as a vaudeville sketch ,  .under the title of "Joshua Whit-  comb." In its elaborated and expanded forn:, "The Old Homestead" had  its first presentation under its present  nuiro at the Boston Theatre in 1886,  and from that day;has dated the popularity of this clean, wholesome, old-  fashioned drama with its rich fund  of spontaneous  humor.  Conservative estimates state that  over twenty million: people have laughed and cried over this play, which in  the'last .three decades-has been presented in every village and hamlet in  the United States and Canada. "The  Old Homestead" was heralded the  beauties of New England life to the  four corners of the earth, and has  rendered memorable the inherent no-  b'e characteristics of such men as Cy  Prime and Aunt 'Tilda. Even the  original title V of the play, ',Joshua  Whitcomb," was the. combination of  the names of two. real characters who  were  local    celebrities.  . Marguerite's Mule  All of Marguerite Clark's time at  Easton, Pa., was not spent in driving a mule for the Famous Players'  Paramount Picture, "Still Waters,"  which is, the feature film at the Bex  Theatre ,tbday.. In fact, the petite actress discovered another form of���������er,  mule���������the college freshman. Easton is  the seat of Lafayette College, which  has-just"opened its ~do~ors to~the~ latest-  flock of young hopefuls in search of  a liberal education. One of them, seeing a charming little figure ahead of  him as he strolled along the street,  quickened his pace and caught up to  her.  "Good morning. Haven't I seen  you. somewhere before?" he inquired,  thereby showing his brilliant originality.  "Yes, if you attend theatres showing ' Paramount Pictures','' countered  Miss Clark, and turned into her hotel leaving a very foolish looking youth  staring after  her.  Henry King, the actor-producer, is  being showered with congratulations  from all quarters for his splendid  work in "Should A Woman Forgive."  Not only did he play the male lead  opposite: Lillian Lorraine, but he directed the, production. As a photo-  drama, it was effective; while from a  pictorial standpoint, it was attractive.  Mr. King's admirers are divided as  to, whether he is better in one. capacity than another. Suffice to say,  however, he is very  good in both.  ...; May Irwin still'remembers the first  evening she faced the footlights in'  the Theatre .Comique, in Rochester,; on  February 8, ': 1,875, when she did a  song that started her to fame and gave  her a reputation that was unequalled"  until she appeared in motion pictures  in '"Mrs...-Black is Back."

He could not  pledge the cabinet. He felt sure  that the government would seriously consider the subject of  Women's Suffrage. He paid a  tribute to the representative delegation present.  Dr. G. A. McGuire recalled that  he had voted for Women's'Suffrage in 1914 and would do so  again if. opportunity offered. Personally he did not think it would  be of much benefit, but he Would  favor giving it to women, if they  wanted it, and this'would be his  ���������'���������answer to the direct questions.  * Mr. A..H..B. Macgowan admitted he had formerly voted against  Women's Suffrage, but since the  war women; had shown 'themselves so splendidly efficient, even  in ,manual 'service, doing; work  better and ��������� quicker,:- than men, '���������'������������������  earning considerable merit, and  had . deserved most, favorable  consideration: He felt impelled  to; say thaty in his opinion, if the V  women of the world had had aX-  voice in the affairs pf Europe,  the terriblej tragedy now being  enacted might have been avoided. While he'could not answer the  direct questions as to: what -he  would do, he predicted that Wo- V  men's Suffrage vras coming in- 7  evitably.

THE WESTERN  CALL  [OW LONG WILL  THE WAR LAST?  F In considering the question of  She probable duration of the war,  fihe London Times remarked recently  that  ''more than   twelve  lonths ago Lord Kitchener ventured to express in the House  i>f Lords his conviction that the  lar would be long, and subsequent events have tended to establish his reputationv as a military prophet." But just what  lid Lord Kitchener mean when  Ihe said "long"? The question  |*When will the war end?" is  vne whieh the whole world is  [asking. The longest war there  [has been since the time of Napoleon was the Civil War in the  I United States, which lasted for  four years. If the present war  lasts until the fall of next year,  it will have been longer than  1 any war in Europe since the battle of. Waterloo was fought. And  when we remember that at the  beginning of this year the British term of enlistment was made  three years, or longer, it would  appear to be a not unwarrantable  conclusion  that  Lord  Kit  chener's idea when he ���������said that  it would be a long war was that  it would las. three or four years,  Most r certainly that was not the  idea of the War Lord at Berlin*  and of  the whole German  military   organization.     Short   wars  and,quick returns has-been the  Prussian idea ever since the time  of   Frederick.   The war    which  Prussia   waged   against Austria  in 1866 was a matter of days,  rather than weeks; and the war  against. France''was ' practically  decided" in  the  month   between  Saarbruck, on   August 2,   1870,  and   Sedan,   on    September    2,  though Paris held out until the  end of January. - Civil wars have  usually been long,  and  this,  as  Lord   Morley has  said, may  be  called Europe's civil war.    But  there is this  great fact,  on the  other hand, to make for a speedier ending   of   it, namely,    that  while the   faith   for which   the  Allies'are fighting is the strongest and best thing in the world,  our enemies have only the belief  in force, which is a feeble creed,  if a creed at all.    It evokes no  real loyalty and crumbles to dust  when events go against it.  MINING  COMPANY  <r  TREBLES CAPITAL  5  Electors of Vancouver:  Your Vote and Influence to elect  J. J.

A.-.flag-  gen, editor of the , Mining and  Engineering Record," the Cohi-  solidated Mining and Smelting  Company is trebling its capital  with a. view to further developing its mining and smelting business to-a position ranking with  the strongest metallurgical Companies on the continent.      '     /  The' authorized' capital is now  $15,000,000, the same as that' of  the Granby Consolidated Mining,  Smelting and JPower Company,  Ltd.  The company's profits for the  past year amounted to $987,890,  of which $192,478.85 was written off. for depreciation, and dividends at the rate of 8 per cent.,  absorbing $464,398.00, were paid.  The company's net profits were,  therefore,  13.8  per  cent.  During the year 1J,610 shares  were issued to provide for extension of the company's operations, such as- the establishment  of the*smelter plant at Trail, and  an electrolytic copper refinery.  Contracts have been entered into  for the supply to plants in the  east of a considerable tonnage  of refined copper and zinc. Development work at the Sullivan  and Rossland mines have revealed promising bodies of ore.  The average prices realized for  metals during the past year  were: Lead, 21:5s (London  price), as against 19:3:4d for  previous year; silver, 49.1, as  compared with 57.1 for previous  year; copper, 15.95, as compared  with 14.36 for previous year.  The increase in tne company's  mining and smelting operations  on Rossland ores was 72^293 tons  over previous-yearN The largest  tonnage was from the - Centre  Star mine, where ^180,410 tons  were mined. The /next largest  ���������shipments weVe1 froni the Le Roi  mine, aggregating ��������� 134,758 tons.  Tiie Sullivan mine was the larg  est shipper of silver-lead ores,  with a production of. 44,841 tons  xx-vi  XX4-  Xx  4      <*  lead sampling~plant, eopper converters, and the production of  electrolytic zinc\ , About: hall *  ton* of zinc a day is4 now iDeing  produced at Trail. A plant to  ptduce twenty-five tons of zinc  a day is being erected; and will  make available a large body^ of  complex ore at . tbe Sullivan  mine.  The tonnage of customs ores  treated shows' a falling' off as  compared with the previous year  of 14.847 tons, due to the falling  off in shipinentB of silver-lead  ores in the early part of the  year. ���������   *  A new feature of the operations of the Consolidated Mining  and Smelting Company, Ltd., is  the purchase from the Bank of  Montreal of its interest' in the  Emma mine in < the Boundary,  recently operated by the B. C.  Copper Company, so vthat the  Consolidated ������ evidently intends  again extending its "operations  into the Boundary country,  where it formerly worked the  No. 7 and Phoehix group mines.  Tne company is also arranging  to extend its operations to the  coast and has negotiations in  hand to this end.

At the Sullivan mine a new  tunnel is being driven at a depth  of 700 ��������� feet beneath the upper  workings. This,tunnel will be  between 8,000 and 9,000 feet in  length and will be the future  main ..working tunnel of the  mine; A new low level tunnel  is being- driven on the Highland  mine at Ainsworth to -open up  the veins 110 feet below the upper workings, and ore has been  encountered, with encouraging  prospects for opening up valuable ore bodies.

Flaubert polished and repolished his lines witli  such painstaking labor that he is said  to have.turned out rarely more than  a page of manuscript a day; Balzac  and Tolstoy covered their pages with  such spider's webs of verbal corrections that the resulting misery endured by those whoso task it was to  to decipher their work is still matter  for pleasant gossip. And now it appears : that. Mr. George Moore, true  to this idiosyncrasy of realism, in superintending a complete edition of his  works became so disgusted with the  title of one of his stories that he  seriously considered omitting the vol-,  ume containing it from the collection.  The title was "A Dream in Muslin/'  This, Mr. Moore felt, was "vulgar."  It is reported that, bef.ore killing the  book outright, he tried "Mousseline"  and"Bal Blanc"���������but this is doubtless' ' a calumny. Finally "it occurred  to him to try. a, compromise���������-hence,  the book has been retained under the  title.V" Muslin.''

Again, even among the  wealthy���������and London is the best  market in the world for the expensive furs���������there is little demand for Silver and Black fox.  The luxury of these are forsworn���������and prices have naturally  fallen. In other words, the supply is greater than the demand.  As a result, the prices of. breeding stock are on the decline and  the fox farmers of Canada have  isuffered the most. Let us hope  that conditions ..will change* ere  Iong.X  With the beginning of the New  Year the Vancouver branch of. the  Canadian Red Cross Society renews its appeal for funds and  feels confident that the public  will respond to. the appeal with  the generosity and liberality that  has characterized the people of  this province. in the past in  their contributions to patriotic  societies. The exertions and sacrifices of the Red Cross workers  and the public who are interested in Red Cross activity, must  be renewed,and redoubled. The  enormous increase hi the British  and overseas forces at the front  which have already taken place  and the very large casualties  imperatively demand that the  stream of donations for. Red  Cross purposes not only should  continue but shuld be consider-  ably augmented.   :  Despite the magnificent contributions amounting to many millions of dollars which have been  made direct to .the Red Cross  Society since the war commenced, the need and urgency for  funds are pressing.  The local branch has achieved  a considerable measure of success and has been able to raise  large sums of money for headquarters and for expenditure locally in materials to be worked  up into garments, and has transmitted substantial contributions  in cash, and vast quantities of  garments to Toronto.

The  [[visitors came up strong and con-  rfident of winning,   and   a, large  [turnout of fans' was on hand to  give the locals the support com-  ling their way. The game was a  [splendid exhibition of hockey all  [the  way. In the  first period  of  (time, the visitors got off to a flying  start  and  scored  twice he-  Ifore  Vancouver  could  find   the  net. At the end. of the first quarter the score was 3, to one in favor of Victoria. But they had apparently   shot   their   bolt as far  as   scoring was   concerned,   for  they got no more while the locals pulled even in the second,  and fairly swamped the Aristocrats in   the   final   period.   The  game  was very clean,  only two  penalties heing  meted   out,   and  these to the visitors. _,  Lester Patrick was back in the  game himself, but not in the best  of shape, while his team-mate,  Kenny Mallen, was unfortunate  in being knocked out by a shot  from Duncan's stick early in the  game. Mallen was going great  guns up to this time, but apparently the accident took a lot of  steam out of him. O'Reilly, in  centre, for the visitors, played a  useful game and followed hard  after the puck all night. On the  defence, Patrick and Genge played well together and pulled off  some spectacular work. McCullough, the little goaler of the Aristocrats, had a busy night, but  showed up well.  Vancouver showed that their  reversal of form is not a flash  in the pan. The locals are only  now rounding into championship  condition and every man played  his position to a. tee. Lehman, in  goal, had a few hard ones in the  opening period, and three of them  got by him, but after that there  was nothing to it. Patrick and  Griffis on the defence, did not  attempt much forward work, and  their presence steadied the team  wonderfully throughout the  game. Taylor played his best  game' of the season, and at that  it was a wonderful exhibition.  The old man is going strong as  a kid in the early twenties, and  has, apparently, lots of speed in  himA yet. Stanley and Cook, on  the forward line, were on top  of the rubber all the time and  back-checked in great style  throughout. Duncan played hard  and fitted in nicely, but he has  much to learn   about  the   game  yet.  *   ���������   *  Victoria goes to the cellar by  their loss and Vancouver slips  up to a tie with Seattle for second place.

R.  schedule will go into effect which  will make some improvement  over the present service. It has  been stated that owing to business depression and other influences, the service supplied by the  B. C. E. R. over their city lines  is less frequent than ��������� it was a  year ago. This, the B. C. E. R.  deny, and claim they are giving  a substantially increased service  compared with that given* a year  ago.  A comparison of November's  figures, which is the last month  to hand, shows that in 1915, 542,-  390 car miles were run as compared to 521,536 for the month  of November, 1914, and this despite the fact that 342,438 less  passengers- were carried in November 1915.  The changes in the schedule,  which will go into effect on Saturday next, along with; the improvements, are  as -follows:  Fairview Outer Line  Improved,  even  in  rush  hour  service, une   additional car.--  Davie Line  - To avoids crowding which occurs on those Davie cars which  run to 52nd avenue in the evening rush hours, instead of running every third car" to. 52nd,  thus giving an eight-minute service to 52nd avenue, the. Davie  rush hour service -will be a four-  minute service ' as far as 25th  avenue.  Robson Line1  One additional car will be added to the rush hour service.   ,-  Grandview Line  A' three-minute rush hour service is now running on the 4th  avenue GrandviewMine, 'and'to  this service six additional cars  will be added during the evening  rush hours, making what will be  approximately a two and one half  minute service.!  Joyce Road Line  Whereas the service now is ,a  twenty-four minute one, arrangements have been made which  will give a . twelve-minute evening rush  hour service.  Victoria Road Line  This line will be permanently  connected up to run to Stanley  park, and thus avoid some of the  complaints whieh have been received.  Hastings Street Hast Line  In place of the present fifteen-  minute _ slack _hour _service,_ a  twelve-minute service will be run  all day, and a six-minute rush  hour service with the addition  of certain special cars f,rom Cambie street.  Hastings Extension Line  A twenty-four minute all day  service will take the place of the  thirty-minute service now running, and cars will connect with  the Hastings East ears from the  city.  Main Street South Line  T^he twenty   four   minute   service now  being run  will  be  improved to an eighteen minute service during evening rush hours.  Oak-Eburne  Line  The   Oak  street  line will   run  between   Eburne   and Broadway  and in order to meet the wishes  of   a   large _ number  of   patrons  a positive meet will be made at  King    Edward    and   Oa k    with  every  second   Fraser-Shaughnes-  sy car.    V  The above alterations will entail a very heavy additional operating expense to the company,  but are in line with the policy  Avhich the canipany intends to  adopt, and which it trusts will  meet with the support of the  travelling public. The traffic will  be very carefully watched as in  the past, and special cars will be  run, if necessary, to supplement  the ordinary services detailed  above.

Many people have the  idea that as soon as a submarine  sees an enemy the officer in command gives a sharp order, and  almost before it has left his lips  the submarine is diving beneath  the waves.  As a matter of fact .the very  latest submarines take a clear  five minutes before they can become submerged. Many of. the  older submarines took ten minutes to a quarter of an hour to  sink.  The reason that a submarine  cannot dive quickly, like a fish,  is because the water whieh must  be - let into her tanks to make  her heavy enough to sink must  be let in >, comparatively slowly  If it were let in with a' rush the  chances'are the vessel would go  down on an even keel but would  heel over and be. in great, danger of disaster. If- water, too,'  were let in too quickly there is  a danger of letting in too much,  and in- that case the submarine  would sink like a.stone, to the  bottom of the sea..-  The depth at which a submarine ��������� travels -under the sea is regulated byhorizontafcrudders. The  water that is let.in the ballast  tanks is just sufficient, to, "balance" the' vessel in the seS^with-  out rising or sinking.   .  - ���������, Yote for      *   ,  d. w. f.

THE WESTERN CALL 8  TUjbJ  WEBTJSliN   CAUi  /S=  LOCAL ITEMS OF INTEREST  SOUTH   VANCOUVERITES  ENLIST  The men of South Vancouver  are responding quickly to the  call issued by the 158th Overseas Battalion, Duke of ConT  naught's Own. _ While the recruiting office was opened only,  last Saturday, already a large  number of men from this district  have enrolled. It has been intimated by Lieut.-Col. Chas.  Milne, O.

The Z'bastile," the branch recruiting office for the 158th,*located near the Municipal Hall,  opened early this week with  Captain A. G.'Spencer, who returned a short time ago from  the front, in charge. The iniita-  Jion fortress is attracting much  attention r and exerting a magnetic influence exactly opposite  that of the repellant force that  is  usually  associated  with  bat  tlements.     Lieut.   Leslie   is   assisting Captain Speneer.'  The organization of the 158th  is proceeding rapidly now that  the staff is located in permanent  quarters in the old V. A. C. build-  ing, and the force is" growing  larger each day through the efforts of the 0. C. and his officers'and the active recruiting  propaganda which has been organized. A splendid class of men  are being taken on for this unit,  the personnel of which includes  many business men ' apd leading  citizens.  Locate in South Vancouver  Arrangements are being made  by the military authorities for  quartering the men enlisted in  South Vancouver for the 121st  Western Irish in the municipality'  pending mobilization at Queen's  Park. - It is planned to establish  a company base in the district  and make the transfers when the  entire unit has been brought up  to strength.   -  Attention is directed by brigade   headquarters to   the lfact  CIVIC ELECTIONS, WARD V  Your   Vote ' and   Influence  Respectfully Solicited  FOR  G;N.

Not a Hearth-fender.���������Clergyman  (to tattered hobo)���������"Instead of spending your life wandering about the  countryside and sleeping under hedges,  why can not you act like a man and  go out and fight for your hearth and  hornet''���������Punch.  According to Canadian' correspondents who have visited it. the  military authorities are making  good use of the Canadian Convalescent Home ih France. The  home is at present- filled to its  utmost capacity., When the men  leave hospital they are not sent  to England unless rtheir period of  convalescence is going to be a  very long one and they are generally billeted in hotels' until they  are fit to return to the front.  There are a number of men well  enough to leave the hospitals and  make room for others, but they  still need rest, special food, and,  as a rule, massage. It is difficult for them to receive any  individual attention in a small  hotel (practically all the larger  and more modern ones are now  hospitals), and for them the Canadian home, with its trained  nurse and trained masseuse, is  doing wonders.  Mrs.     Christopher     Robinson,  who represents the committee in  England, recently stayed at the  home   for ten  days, and   writes  saying how deeply it is appreciated by the men who are spending their convalescence there and  by the military authorities in the  neighborhood.     She is   charmed  with the   comfortable,   home-like  appearance  of  the home,  which  is bright and attractive without  any extravagance, and is kept in  the  most  perfect  order  by  the  voluntary Canadian staff.      The  whole   organization reflects" the  greatest credit on Mrs. Douglas,  the/superintendent, and her two  original assistants, Miss Tate and  Miss   Burnham,   who    are    still  working with her.,   Mrs. Christopher  Robinson goes   on  tp -say  that   the effect' of  a   few   days  in* the Canadian home as she herself saw, is truly astonishing. The  men arrive.there, weak and run  down, but the wonderful airland  ���������the perfect quiet, combined with  good food and real care, ,help to  build theni up again visibly, and  in a few days they,are so much  improved as to be hardly recognizable.     The   appreciation, and  gratitude felt and shown by the  officers  was   quite    enough,  to  make her realize the great value  and usefulness of the borne more  than  .ever before,   and   to feel  that  the  results achieved,   even  at this early stage, are an abundant reward for all the work and  trouble.        ~  Most of the "men return direct  tb the firing line, but a Canadian  from the west, who had been in  the home, recently arrived home  oh" leave. It is hard "to" realize,  he said, what it means when you  had been through all the noise  and discomfort of the front to  'find yourself in surroundings, as  comfortable and restful as those  at the Canadian home. It was  almost too good to, be true as  it was absolutely quiet, with no  soldiers passing, and nobody  wanting to lionize or entertain  you, but if you did feel like going out and meeting anybody  there were commauding officers  within reach who were kindness  and hospitality itself and always  pleased to welcome you. This  officer was sure that all who had  been with him at the home felt  as he did about it, and they all  got over the effects of wounds  or sickness in a remarkably short  time.

Just how many are qualified for  service and have no particular  obstacles to enlistment will be ascertained by a sort of census  which it to be taken' at once.  Official denial, however, is given  to a report that all who do not  enlist will be dismissed and will  be replaced by returned soldiers.  This would be a forra of. compulsion to which neither the department nor the government have  any intention of resorting.

"Why,' he picked up a horseshoe in front of his house yesterday, and when he went in he  found a note from his wife, saying that she'd run away with  the  chauffeur."  The man who had, made a huge  fortune was speaking a few  words to a class of students at  a business college. Of course the  main theme of. his address was  himself.

He made an impressive pause  here, but the effect was ruined by  one student, who asked impressively: "Yes, sir, but please tell  us whom did you pluck?"
