Underwood BUI Seductions Give* Everything  Granted Under Reciprocity and Without  Surrendering Our Fiscal Independence  When the reciprocity pact was under discussion  at the election of 1911 the contention of the Conservatives was that the Democrats would grant to  Canada through a reduction of the tariff all the  advantages of the reciprocity treaty without- the  Dominion necessarily giving anything in return  and without our surrendering oiur fiscal independence and tieing ourselves up to a foreign nation.  Events have proven absolutely the contention  of the Conservatives. The new Wilson tariff bill  waa signed recently, and has now gone into force  And under it not only has Canada got att that the  reciprocity treaty ever granted, but much more,  and in addition tiie Canadian home market is preserved for the Canadian farmer.  There are many articles either reduced or placed  on the free list now which the old reciprocity pact  did not touch, All this is secured without any  compensation, and atill gives' Canada its home  market for the farmers of the Dominion, and  places any future tariff changes not in the hands  of a foreign nation, but of Canada alone.  One criticism which ia levelled *J������iast the  present tariff changes is that 0*i^-alone will  not enjoy the advantages of the reduced tariff, but  it will be thrown open to all countries. However,  H mutt be recalled that even' under the American  reciprocity j>act, the twelve favored nation*. Can>  the advantages, if lay, which would accrue from  the passing of tne treaty.  One province particularly which will gain by  the new tariff bill, and wbUm was practically isolated by the reciprocity agreement, is British  Columbia. Under the new tariff, coal, lumber,  fruit and fish are jrot on the free list, and these  main-products of British Columbia will bave free  access to the American market.  COMPARISON OF TARIFFS.

UNITED STATES REVENUE STATISTICS  4'The American people ..'. . smoked more  cigars and cigarettes, and chewed more tobacco  during the fiscal year 1913, than in any other  yearly period of the nation's history, according  to the record-breaking internal revenue receipts  for the fiscal year ended June 30.  "Smokers used 7,707,000,000 cigars and 14,012,-  000,000 cigarettes. This was 217,000,000 cigars  and 2,790,000,000 cigarettes more than ever before. Patrons of the pipe smoked 403,200,000  pounds of tobacco."  THE GRAIN MARKET  The world's wheat crop for 1913-14 Broomhall  estimates at 3,792,000,000 or 154,000,000 increase  over 1912-13, when the total was 3,648,000,000  against 3,408,000,000 in 1911-12, 3,544,000,000 in  1910-11 and 3,608,000,000 in 1909-10, showing four  years' average 3,552,000,000. Against this indicated large wheat yield there is a deficiency of  1,000,000,000 of feed crops in the United States  compared with a year ago, and of 104,000,000 rye  in the world's total which is a European bread-  making grain.  -0-**i^P" 't''"*P*-I****'*tW   T 99**/***f'99*9*9**^^*7   9*9*ww*\^9m**)*w*99  In 1909 Laurier declared himself in favor of a  Canadian naval service in co-operation with the  Imperial navy both to be undar one control.  In 1910 the Laurier Naval Service Act was so  framed as to provide oomplete separation of the  Canadian from the Imperial navy. The Canadian  navy was to be absolutely neutral in time of war.  In 1910, contrary to the advice of the Admiralty,  Laurier refused to supply even one fleet unit.  In 1912 Laurier declared two fleet units were  necessary.   Why, then, the refusal of one in 1910?  SIR WILFRID'S LATEST  ONTARIO'S WHITE PINE  The Ontario Oovernment has just issued a handbook of Ontario resources which claims for Ontario the most valuable pine forests on the Continent. "The forest wealth of the Province," it  states, "is an asset that must not be overlooked.  The forest area of Ontario, not counting Patricia,  the newly added district, which alone has 100,000  square miles, is the most valuable on the Continent of America. The quantity of pine still standing on licensed lands is estimated at 7,000,000,000  feet and on unlicensed lands 13,500,000,000. The  total revenue of the Province from woods and  forests in 1912 was $1,985,662."  Sir Wilfrid Laurier, speaking in Chateauguay  the other day, declared he was in favor of lowering the Canadian tariff, thus returning to the  people the $50,000,000 surplus the present government has accumulated during its two years of  office.  The people of Canada well know how little sincerity is behind such a statement made only in the  vain, hope of catching votes. When the present  government lowered the duty on cement in order  to assist the people of the west, Laurier and the  | members of his party raised a great outcry against  any such action.  Sir Wilfrid's recent statement will be further  discounted when it is remembered that he came  into power a pronounced Free Trader, but immediately developed into a strong Protectionist.  COSTLY FINANCING.  The modern method of Civic Financing���������in  fact, of all public financing���������is undoubtedly a  most expensive method.  On the' average 30-year loan much over double  the amount received is returned in principle and  interest.  An opportunity here presents itself to some  enterprising economist to devise a new method  of dealing with this troublesome problem.  UWYERS UNNECESSARY  AS MAtt OF THE LAW  (From the Journal of Commerce.)  -, The passing of the Underwood Tariff Bill in  the United States is bringing unstinted praise to  President Woodrow Wilson. The measure is very  largely the creation of his own brain and to him.  very largely is due the credit for its speedy passage through the two houses. His work in this  connection, as well as throughout his adminiatra-  tion is a direct refutation of the claim thst a lawyer is necessary to administer tiie affairs of a nation. President Wilson was a school teacher, then  a professor and then a university president before  entering into tbe realm of politics. He acquired  a theoretical knowledge of polities probably un-  equalled by anyone in the United States and Is  now proceeding to put those theories into practice. His excellent work has in a very large measure called fresh attention to the desirability of  having business men or trained atndents and*  thinkers aa law makers instead of ae>* many'lawyers. ���������.  In both Canada and the United Statea and to a  lesser extent in Great Britain there ia a growing  tendenc-������ iwiiAi^nalFt of the electors to reject law-  yera whto;4oey^i-eaent themselves at the polls.  It is felt that lawyers spend too much tune in hair  splitting controversies and end up by mating law  so involved and complicated that it require* another nt of Uwy erf'to interpret the measures  which Wve b������fmjrf*|*d on the statute book*. Ap*  business men and fewer lawyer* in onr legislatta?  halls, in Canada, there are 75 lawyers and 7  notaries or a total of 82 professional law makers  out of a total membership of 221, or over 37 per,  cent. In the United States, lawyers number 220  put of a total membership of 391 in Congress and  39 out tof 91 Senators, or over one-half in each  house. In the British Parliament, lawyers number less than one-seventh of tbe total memberabip,  which may account for the reputation the British  House of Commons, possesses of being the "finest  . deliberative body in the world." We, in Canada,  could get along with fewer lawyers in Parliament  and more practical business men.  ���������:w-  __,  OCEAN TRAGEDIES OF NINETEEN YEARS  Lives  lioat.  1893���������June 22, HM-S.

Electric in increasing  the "car-fares" has resulted in much indignation  and criticism on the part of the public. Some  say let us walk���������that is easy, if one happens to  live close in, but to those living out in South  Vancouver it is a "horse of another color."  Others say "why do the Council not make the  company reduce its fares?" The Council cannot,  simply because the agreement or franchise does  not expire until 1919.  The B. C. Electric are giving more now than  they agreed to give.    Their franchise permits a  charge of five cents, it also permits a ten-minute  service on Robson and Davie lines, and a twenty-  (.ContinuetJ on Page 8)  4.1  ''-*& THE WESTERN CALL.

Four Gallant Englishmen  How a British Force Was Cut Up-  Wild Dervish Onrushes.  (Overseas Mail.)  A thrilling story of cool and unflinching gallantry, worthy of the  highest traditions of fheBritish Empire, is unfolded in the prosaic pages  of a Blue book on Somaliland affairs,  issued on Tuesday night and dealing  principally with the reverse to the  Somaliland Camel Corps, which, on  August 9, was cut1 up by Dervishes at  Dul Madoba, about fifty miles from  Berbera, on the African coast of the  Gulf of Aden.  ��������� The gallant feat of Mr. Geoffrey  ^rcher, the Acting Commissioner, in  going out to the relief of the survivors of the Camel Corps, with a mere  handful of men, gains added lustre  from his own modest reports on the  incident. But with his must be ranked  the names of the three men who defended the zareba or fenced enclosure  of the Camel Corps against the on-  rushing horde* of. Dervishes.  ������������������. ** ���������  Capt. Summers, of the King's African Rifles, Mr. Dunn, of the Camel  Constabulary,, and Mr. Cor field, the  Commandant "of th'e Camel Corps,  who were killed.  Penalty With His Life  "It is evident," says the Colonial  Secretary, in a dispatch to the Acting  Commissioner, "that the whole responsibility for this ill-advised action  must rest with the late Mr. Corfield.  He has paid the penalty with his life,  and I have no desire to dwell on this  aspect of the matter. But I.am compelled, if only in justice to the other  officers concerned, to record my  opinion that the disaster was due to  his complete: disregard of the instructions issued by his. Majesty's  Government, by Mr. Byatt, Commissioner for Somaliland, and by yourself."  But both, Mr. Archer and Capt.  Summers pay high tributes to the  Commandant's briviry.. "A rash act  has involved the Government of the  Protectorate in a severe set-back,"  writes Mr. Archer in one dispatch,  "and in the circumstances in a politically disastrous withdrawal from  Burao. For this Mr. Corfield, who  had previously done such excellent  work, has paid the penalty with his  Wfadt c������n o������������i[J)e:|ai������|;that be allowed his attribute of great personal  bravery and the complete confidence  he had in the men under his command to outweigh his better judgment The action of Dul Madoba  should never have been fought."  2.000 Dervishes.  After a discussion with Mr. Cor-  fied, Mr. Archer ordered a strong re-  connaisance in the direction of Ber,  and instructed Capt. Summers, who  had accompanied him from Berbera,  to go with the force with a view to  advising Mr. Archer later on the military situation. The Camel Constabulary���������116 rank and file, with Mr.  Corfield as commandant, Mr. Dunn  as assistant commandant, and Capt.  Summers attached���������moved out of  Burao at 3 p. m. on August 8, and  that evening arrived within four miles  of Idoweina, where the Dervishes'  fires were seen to be illuminating the  sky. Scouts sent forward reported  that the enemy were assembled in  force, and estimated their numbers at  2,000,~with 150 horse.  "Had the commandant," says Mr.  Archer, "at this juncture fallen back  and reported to me on the situation,  a valuable service would have been  rendered, even though some risk had  been   incurred Contrary   to  orders, however, the commandant  decided to engage the Dervishes and  to place his force in such a position  as to intercept on the morrow their  line of retreat with their stock into  the Ain. I need scarcely comment  on the hazardous natiire of such an  undertaking with the force at his  disposal."  Mr. Corfield was, however, clearly  determined to operate against the  Dervishes. At 4:30 a. m. on August  9 the Camel Corps stood to arms.  The friendly tribesmen fled at the  first shot. The Dervishes advanced  in a series of determined onrushes  and enveloped the right fiank. The  Maxim gun was soon put out of action by rifle fire. Mr. Corfield was  shot and died instantly at about 7:15  a. m. The rank and file showed regrettable want of steadiness. On the  first retirement of the Dervishes they  rose to pursue them, and it was only  with difficulty that Mr. Dunn got  them back to-the main body.  "About 10 a. m.," Capt. Summers  says, "Mr. Dunn and myself and our  few remaining men found ourselves  surrounded on all sides by Dervishes,  but we had contrived to construct a  small zareeba of dead ponies and  camels. At noon the Dervishes, who  had ruii out of ammunition, retreated." Capt. Summers was wounded,  and all the responsibility in the final  stages of the action, he says, devel-  (Continued on Page 3)  l'HE  Where it pays to deal.  Books, Stationery  Newspapers.

When I went down under the  whiter I thought lt was the end.   1  I was pe.rtectly conscious and calm, and  did not move even my arms. A brief  prayer coursed through my mind, and  I was conscious chiefly of the fact that  I had not told my sister, ln my hurried embarkation, where I was going,  and she would never know what had  become of me.. I waited for the sensation which I have always heard  comes to the drowning, and hoped that  I might not be conscious of any  terrible struggle.

Scott, president of the Columbia Bitulithic Company, in lecturing to  the Young   People's   Guild   of   Knox  Church, gave a thorough talk on modern road building. .During the lecture  he said there has been a good deal of  nonaense talked   concerlng   the   old  Roman roads  being such wonderful  constructions.   The fact was that they  were made under conditions of con  struction which could in no way be  compared with modern conditions. Instead of having to deal with men -fortified by trade unions, the roads were  made with slave labor, and the cost of  them bore no proportion whatever to  the traffic which was a great consideration in modern road building/ They  also had no traffic whatever with the  heavy traffic vehicles.    The lecturer  paid a high tribute to Telford, Macadam and Wade, great road builders  of their day, but he said the modern  automobile demanded an entirely different surface from the macadamised  roads, which were almost Ideal in their  day for the stage coach. He advocated  more attention paid to road making  and a more, intelligent appreciation of  the need of roads by governing bodies  and by the government itself.    The  Mrs. H. MacAlllster.  A son waa recently born to Mr. and "*���������������������������������--��������� ������"> epeaker, to a great function in the development of the community and a factor that is seldom,, appreciated at it's proper value. Although the lecture was of a thoroughly practical character, it was enlightened by some admirable touches of  humor and some apt literary illustrations, the lecturer quoting from '^he  Broad Highway" and from Dickens'  description of Tom Pinch's ride into  London, and also the splendid laudation of the road which Kipling put into the mouth of a Romany gipsy. Mrs.  Robertson and other ladles added  some charming vocal numbers.      {"  Miss Jessop, of Seattle, a survivor  of the. wrecked "State of California,"  after having lost all her Intimate  friends, is visiting her sister at 57,  Fortieth Avenue, South Vancouver.  Miss Jessop thus describes her experience in the. wreck:  "It was a beautiful Sabbath morning, and we were about three miles  from land in Gambia Bay.   I had risen  earlier than    my    friends    who had  stayed up the night before to see. the  ship go through the Narrows, and hav*  Ing taken my breakfast alone I stepped  up on the    hurricane    deck.

The  Home consists of two separate but  contiguous buildings on 'Gladstone  avenue, the Gladstone station of the  B.jCJE. Railway.  A genuine interest tn the event waa  clearly evinced by the large number  of ladles present from all parts of the  city,' as also from Eburne and New  Westminater, and by the deeply earnest and spiritual tone, of the whole  prbceedinga.  ^he meeting waa presided over by  the,Rot* Dr. P.

'-  Miss Gordon, matron of the Calgary  Rescue Home, was present and spoke  a few cheering words, testifying that  it accorded wltb her experience that  of all tbe joys that could flow Into the  human soul, there was none that could  compare with the Joy that comes from  the consciousness of being used to lift  up and restore to a virtuous and use*  ful life women who had been lost In  the mad. wild life of sin.  After singing "Rescue the Perishing," Dr. Wright dismissed the meeting with a short prayer.

Their agreement has outlived its usefulness. It cannot be  appealed to by the Council because its enforcement would be worse than the actual conditions  ���������the eompany would not dare to limit their ser-  vv <i to conditions for business reasons. The agree-  ruent, therefore, is useless. The company have  the "whip hand" in this matter until 1919, and  even after that date unless the city prepares to  purchase the system. This, however, we would  suggest,-that an effort be made to secure a low  fare within certain zones���������say, a three cent fare  from the centre of the city to its present limits,  not to carry a transfer privilege, and a five cent  fare to be unlimited.  Without question five cents is too much to pay  to ride a few blocks in the city and the company  could well afford to make this discrimination.  THAT OLD SUSSEX JAW-BONE  By Prof. E. Odium, M.A., B.Sc.  Here again millions of years have been postulated. And not a man in or out of Sussex has one  single unit of time, or of geological strata by  which to proceed into the millions, or even into  hundreds of thousands of years. A certain learned  man, Dr. Woodward, "thinks the Piltdown Man  (who is believed to have been a woman) had a low  brain capacity of only 1070 cubic centimetres.  Another learned man, Professor Keith, contends  that tiie individual had a brain capacity of 1560  cubic centimetres, CORRESPONDING TO A  MODERN BRAIN CAPACITY; that the features  were human in character, and that articulate  speech was visible." The above is good. Dr.  Woodward makes from the old jaw-bone the basis  for an APE; but Professor Keith will have hone  of this apish business.  Now I would like to ask these and the other  staring learned paleontologists, many of whom  are most credulous, even worse than the believers  in witches, warlocks, and long-nebbed things that  hide among the heather���������I would like to ask how  they get units of time in Sussex to run the date of  that Jew back back to ages and ages ago, intr  millions of years since?  Perhaps it is the jaw of some poor idiot, or of  some black slave who had to serve one of the  legionary generals of Claudius, or a servant of  Robin Hood when he was a Gentleman Forester.  Can any living man prove that this jaw is more  than 1913 years of age? If so, bring on the proof.  We sKailbe delighted to read it, and when satisfied, announce our conversion to the argumentation.  A VERY LONG TINE  AND A HOARY MOON  (Prof. E. Odium, M.A., B.Sc.)  Some would-be astronomer has been guessing  about the age of the moon. He had, and has, no  idea of what its age may be, but as he is out  guessing and making pabulum-packing for young  and ignorant newspaper scribblers, he guesses on  a gigantic scale. He might as well. It costs  little to talk big. But when the newspapers and  magazines publish the "guess-stuff," as though it  has any sort of a scientific basis, they make themselves laughing-stocks of a class more despicable  than the wild guesser.  Some man down in Kansas, or in that country  where astronomy has a huge attraction for vivid  and magnificent imaginations, we are told that  "the Arcadians must count back 57,000,000 years  to have lived before the moon."  This is tall enough for the Kansas alkali plains.  Perhaps the Alka-lie tends to make them lie. At  all events the Kansas guesser might just as  well have said 1,000,000 years, or 1,000,000,-  000 years. In each and any other case he has no  foundation data to build upon, and he knows he  has none. And furthermore, not a single astronomer, white, black, red or blue, has any data on  which to construct a moon, or any moon even  1,000000 years old.  The long-period writers talkers and praters  presume much on the. ignorance of their listening  or reading audiences, and are all a little too insolent to be respected, even if they be Professors,  or Ph.D.'s, or experts in any of the sciences'.  There is not, and never was, a geologist, an astronomer or a conjecturer, or a paleontologist furnished/with a single measuring rod with which to  measure the age of any of tbe moons, suns, or  stars in any part of the heavens.  CORRESPONDENCE  Grain Yield  j* yy  Ottawa, October' 18th���������A bulletin Issued by the Census and Statistics Office of the Department of Trade and  Commerce, gives a provisional estimate of the yield of the principal grain  crops and also the average quality of  these crops at harvest time.  During the month ended September  SO, ideal weather for the ingathering  of the grain crops prevailed over all  Canada. In the greater part of Ontario  and In tbe Western provinces, harvesting operations were well completed  by the middle of September and only  in parte of Quebec and the Maritime  provinces, where the spring opens  later, waa harvesting carried on during the latter end of the month.  The estimates given a month ago  are slightly greater than tbose now  Issued which may be presumed to be  baaed more or less on results, of  threshing. The final estimates based  altogether on threshing results and  calculated on corrected areas will he  issued aa usual on December 15th.  For spring wheat tbe estimate for  the end of September is 188,468,000  bushels, as compared with 182,840,000  bushels last year.   For fall wheat the  estimate ts 19,107,000 busbels as against 16,396,000 bushels last rear and I*.*  481.000 bushels In the preliminary estimate this year.   The total estimated  wheat production this year Is therefore 207,575,000 bushels, ae compared  with 199,236,000 bushels last year, an  Increase of 8,339,000 bushels or 4 1-4  per cent.   Tbe yield per acre for all  wheat Is 21.15 bushels as compared  with 20.42 bushels last  year.    Oats  show a total yield of 391,418,000 bush  els and an average yield of 40.57 bush  els as compared with 36,733,000 bushels snd an average yield of 39.25 bush*  els.   Barley gives an estimated total  yield of 44,348,000 bushels and an average of 31.00 bushels per acre as compared with 44,014,000 bushels and an  average of 31.10 bushels ln 1912. For  tbis year the total production of rye  Is 2,559,000 bushels, of peas 3,974,000  busbels, of buekwheat 7,600,000 bushels, of flax 14,912,000 bushels, of mixed  grains 17,178,000 bushels, of corn for  !   husking  14,086,000  bushels, of beans  989,500 bushels as compared witb a  total yield last year for rye of 2,594,-  OOObushels, for peas of 3,773,500 bushels, for buckwheat of 10.193,000 bushels, for flax of 21,681,500 bushels, for  mixed grains of 17,952,000 bushels, for  corn husking of 16,569.800 bushelB, for  . beans of 1,040,800 bushels.  Por the three Northwest provinces,  tbe total yield of spring -wheat is estimated at 183,852,000 bushels, of fall  wheat at 5,264,000 busbels, of oats at  239,595,000 bushels, of barley at 27,-  904,000 busbels, of rye at 686,000  bushels, of flax at 14,808,000 bushels.  Tbe average quality of these crops  measured upon a per cent basis of 100  as representing grain well headed,  well filled, well saved and unaffected  to any appreciable extent by frost,  rust, smut, etc., Is as follows:    Spring  N0RW VANCOUVER  Indians of Seymour Reserve No. 2  have entered into negotiations with  the Burrard Inlet Tunnel,, ������ Bridge  Company for the sale, of, rliht-of-way  across tbelr reserve, and, through the  agency of Mr. Peter Byrne, the Indiana  have given a sixty-day "option. Tbe  right-of-way will take but 11% acres,  and for tbls the Indians will receive  144,600 and $4,824.48 for houses which  must be taken away and damage  which will be done to gardens.

This resolution was carried unanimously at the meeting ot the city  council tonight, Mayor Hanes presiding.  '"Aid. Vance reported   tbat   he, the  Mayor and Aid. Allen had waited upon  To the Editor of the Western Call:  Dear Sir,���������Tbat there ls something  radically wrong either with tbe City  Council, tbe B. C. E. R. company or  the city ratepayers is plain on the face  of present developments. The B. C.  E. R. Co. have thrown down the gauntlet to the City Council, and to the  city ratepayers. If not very manly,  they have done it very fearlessly.  That .^tbe company Is able to fight  their own battles is an open fact. For  the ten years I have been in Vancouver the company have shown themselves masters of the situation!, I am  surprised to see anyone championing  their cause, for they have shown  themselves ln the past able, strong,  and mighty to down any opposition  brought against them.  In tbe Western Call of Oct. 10th my  learned friend Professor E. Odium,  M.A., B.Sc, with whom I agree in  most things, put up an apology for the  B. C. E. company for raising the fares  on their city lines. I agree with the  professor in his contention that the  company like all other corporations  (soulless as they all may be) should  get a fair remuneration for their investments. This ail common-sense  men muBt allow. I take for granted  tbat the professor Is looking for Information. I regret very much that I  am not well enough versed ln B. C. E.  and Vancouver dty finances to enlighten the professor in anything re*  gardlng them, but I am fully confident  the professor Is perfectly able to enlighten me and the people of Vancouver on the few questions I am going to ask later on. When the B. C. E.  connected the light with our bouse  over two years ago we had to pay  three dollars for the privilege of burning tbelr light at 15 cents per kilowatt and pay 20 cents per month  meter rent; over five years ago I  rented my store. I had to deposit  three dollars on meter on which I  have, been paying 5 cents per month  rent I have now paid over $13, including interest, on the meter and the  company have the use of my three  dollars for nothing for over five years  and by all appearances will continue  so, until I give up the store, when  they say they will refund me the  three dollars.  When a man begins bis apprenticeship on the B. C. E. cars be has to  work three weeks for nothing. After  this he works 23 days out of which be  gets 15 days' wages, the other 8 days  is kept back until he takes or gets his  discharge, maybe a year or ten years'  hence. All this is money for the com*  pany to work on. '���������,.  First question: How many such  cases aa I have mentioned are In Vancouver and surroundings contributing  dead money to themselves but wbicb  must be living power to the company?  Second: How much money, in tbls  way, have tbe B.C.E. In their possession?  Third: Does tbe B.C.E. company  keep this money In their vaults or  do they run tbelr system with It?  Fourth: If tbe B.C.E. earns no dividend wbo is at fault? For years I  bave travelled on every branch of  their road. T very seldom got a seat  except on special hours in the dsy  when everyone is at lunch or at work  he .cannot leave. Every day I can  count from fifty to seventy-five standing ln the vestibule and passage of  tbe cars packed like cattle and tbe  distracted conductor calling move forward, please. He baa two carloads ln  one and be and the motorman are  each compelled to do two men's work.  Still tbe company is losing money  accommodating the public!  Any man wbo does not give his  seat to a lady on the car is not a  gentleman, for courtesy's sake every  man gives his seat up to a woman.  As a matter of fact we are obliging  the B.C.E. company and discomforting ourselves at the same time. The  woman says nothing but thank you,  which is all that can be expected.  She got the seat from the hard-working man who for eight or ten hours  had mentally and physically worked  himself almost to a state of collapse  trying to make an honest living for  himself and his family.  If the B.C.E. company ls giving the  public the accommodation which tbey  agreed to give when they got their  franchise the company is not to  blame. If not, the city council is the  guardian of the ratepayers' interests  and should bring the company to time  or vacate their seats and make room  for better representatives to protect  the ratepayers and public interest  Tours respectfully,  MALCOLM MATHESON.  3432 Sophia St.  The Knights of Pythias Club gave * majw am ������lu. ������,������������������ UBU ���������������.���������,��������� Uiluu  dance on Monday evening.

(Laughter.) "  The Mayor mentioned that if the  people voted for tbe by-law, the debts  of the company would be immediately  paid, and tbere would be no risk of  getting tied up. If tbey turned down  the by-law they would be. asking the  directors to continue a company which  had not sufficient to pay its way.  The city treasurer reported that the  taxes collected to date for 1913  amounted to $221,571, being 62% per  cent, of the total of $359,977, as against  75 per cent, collected at this time last  year.  CANADA'S FOREST' PRODUCTS  LABORATORY  "The Forest Products Laboratory  now being established at McGill haa  for Its object the utilization of the  bye-products or waste incidental to  lumbering operations. At present  over seventy-five per cent, of a tree is  wasted either in the form of stumps,  cull logs and tops, or as slabs, edgings  and saw-dust. The work to be ac  compllshed by the. Laboratory will be  Conservation In its broadest and most  practical aspect." writes Mr. A. G.  Mclntyre, Superintendent of the Dominion Forest Products Laboratory in  this week's issue of the Journal of  Commerce, Montreal.  What they hope to do Is well expressed by the following:���������"Instead  of a sawmill only, there will be a  group of plants in which wood will be  converted not only Into lumber, but  into alcohol, paper and other staples  of commerce. From it in some cases  would also be. - secured turpentine,  rosin and other valuable oils and  gums."  Wants to See M  Another winter season is on us j  again, after a few fine days.
