BEST METHODS FOR
DISPOSAL OF BRUSH
Twelve Practical Suggestions for Dealing with
Serious Problem~��qierience of New York
May Bo Applied to Canadian Oondttfoni���Top-
lopping Advisable Where Burning is Impracticable.
The following is a summary- of the conclusions
reached in a report to the Commission of Conservation by Clyde Leavitt, Forester to the Commission. The conclusions apply to conditions in
Canada, the results of an investigation into the
brush disposal situation in the Adirond ack region
of New York, where conditions are closely similar to those in a large portion of Eastern Canada.
The conclusions are as follows: /
1. Increasing stumpage values render fire prevention ahd control essential from the point of
Tiew of the timber owner. Decrease in wood supplies renders it still mofe essential fropa the point
of view of thr general public, and, ixpt particular,
of/the communities and business interests directly
dependent u^on the manufacture of forest products.      iwi y
' 2. .Logging slash institutes, the moat serious
'fire menace in existence.       a"       -x .   %
. 3. Brush disposal is a practicable and feasible
' method of minimising Aire danger, though aeeond-
' ary to patrol '    "
4. The method, of brush dipposal to bs adopted
iiMiny- particular caae can be determined only by
careful consideration of all the surrounding conditions. Jt is desirable that the adroiniatrative
officer have a reasonable degree of discretionary
authority.     ~    ..- 'Ay ��� Ar . ,.
5. Where brush-burning is practicable both
financially and ailv.culturally, this is the most
efficient means of reducing the slash menace.
6. Where brush .burning is not practicable for
any reason; the lopping of tops may be advisable.
In case tops are lopped, financial and silvicultural
, considerations will determine whether the mate*
rial should be piled or scattered or left without
further attention.. The necessity for lopping may
under some circumstances be obviated by some
other fire-protective measure, such as the construction of fire-lines, etc
7. The lopping of tops does materially increase the amount of debris which reaches the
ground or forms piles resting on the ground in
sufficiently coninact form to absorb and return
moisture; the time required for decay is thus
lessened by one-half to two-thirds. T^e stash
menace as an element of fire danger disappears in
direct proportion to the rapidity and complete-
, ness of this process of decay. Piling or scattering, following, lopping, is desirable, but is generally considered to be impracticable in the Adirou-
dacks on account of expense. This would apply
also to a large section of Eastern Canada unless
such disposal is required under a Government
license, and allowance is made for the added cost
. in the dues to be paid.
8. With closer utiliation, the relative efficiency
oi. top-lopping as a fire protective measure decreases. In other words, lopping is much more
necessary in an old-time lumbering operation and
will have a greater relative effect in decreasing
the fire danger, than in the case of a pulp operation, where a far larger percentage of the
branches will in any event be brought into contact with the ground, as a necessary part of the
operation.
9. The beneficial effects of top-lopping far
outweigh the disadvantages due to any possible
injury to soil reproduction or old growth.
10. Loping to only a 3-inch diameter limit in
the top materially decreases the cost of the operation. The law has recently been changed to require lopping only to a 3-inch diameter limit.
This Js a result of the report of the State Forester
following the field investigation of last fall. The
general consensus of opinion is that the average
cost of lopping under the original law was approximately 15 cents per cord for pulpwood or
30 cents per cord for saw timber.'" Under the law
as it now exists, the cost should be very materially
less than this. _',-.���
11. "The question of brush disposal and of fire
prevention in general should be given much more
-^careful attention in Canada by all concerned than
has been the case in the past. This is entirely
practicable in the case of issuance of new licenses
by Dominion or Provincial Governments, as well
as in the case of renewals of existing licensed.
12. Patrol is the most important and the most
essential element in any plan of fire protection.
This must be provided, regardless of what other
methods are adopted. The construction of roads,
trails, telephones, look-out stations, and other per-*
manent improvements of a similar character, is
essential to an efficient patrol system.

The egregious Mr. Lloyd-George, Chancellor of

land campaign, which his party confidently expects will sweep, them back to power at the forth-'
coming general election, and will enable them to

mercies of Borne. It is significant that the cain-

"We are pleased to welcome, in our midst the
progressive and up-to-date well-known firm of
Messrs. Dow, Fraser & Co., Ltd., who have opened
a branch office at 2313 Main street for real estate,
savings deposits, safety deposit boxes, rentals,
etc., etc., appertaining to the business.
This firm carries on a general financial business,
and in addition to its real estate department, collects agreements, looks after property and rents,
sells exchange all over the world, v^nd issues
travellers' cheques. Jt loans money o* mortgages and short term loans, and is the only firm
of its kind in the city which issues a daily financial statement. This necessitates a great deal of
labor, but its advantages to the investing public
and the company are obvious. Their book* are
audited monthly by the chartered accounting firm
of Crehan, Mouat & Co., in addition to being examined by the Government Inspector of Trust
Companies periodically.
This company pays 4 per cent, interest on deposits, which are subject to your cheque, and as
an illustration of their up-to-date methods they
pay the interest every month���-12 times a year.
This feature has met with the approval of the
public to such an extent that practically the deposits are doubled every year until now they"
amount to about a quarter of a million.
The safety deposit vault in the company's office
is, as far as human ingenuity goes, absolutely
fireproof, and when one reflects that for a shade
under a cent a day valuable papers may be kept
secure in a private box, the amount is nothing ,
compared with the daily risk incurred in this
city, where wooden residences are so general,
and we may here remark that Dow, Fraser & Co.
do a large business in writing fire insurance.
Starting in 1900 with a modest capital this firm
has steadily progressed until today it is deservedly regarded as one of the soundest and most
reliable in B. C. It transacts business all over
the world, and issues its own drafts on the United
States, Europe", China, Japan, Australia and India.
Onr readers cannot do better than place their
business in the hands of such a concern, and we
cordially welcome, them to our part of - the city,
whilst the advent of such old-established city
business firms as Dow, Fraser & Co. in itself adds
importance to our district.
ONTARIO'S WHITE PINE
The Ontario Government has just issued a handbook of Ontario resources which claims for Ontario the most valuable pine forests on the Continent. s"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 $1,985,662."
**m:K'ttmm~v~\w*vm9*
Each reason il what sportiflg men c*ll ,fa fair
knockout.'* (t) "The land e>raes from the hand
of the Creator, and does not owe ita existence to
man.'' So does the ocean--therefore, tax it, and
so on ad infinitum. (2) "The land is limited in
quantity you can no more add an acre to the area
of a county than you can add a cubit to your
stature.'' What a profound truth! How long
did it come to them to discover that. It takes One's
breath away, doesn't it? But the reasoning
faculties of your good land-taxer are limited like
the land. *���' Tou can no more add to it than,'' etc.
Therefore, tax it. (3) "Tfie land i8 necessary to
our existence." Simply prodigious! To think
we -have lived so many years that we have never
realized that before. Anyhow, tax it. (���$) "Tbe
value of the land is independent of the value of
any buildings or other improvements upon it."
Sure, all the same, I would rather have a quarter
of an acre on Granville Street or Hastings somewhere near the Post Office than a full square mile
say 300 miles north of Fort George. (5) "Land
oweB its value entirely to the presence and activity and demand of the community." So does
bacon, or pork snd beans. If you have no community and no demand, what would be the good
of either of these commodities There would be
no one to want it, therefore nobody to buy it, no
use for them in fact. At present there is a demand for bacon, or what you will, because it is
obtainable at a certain price; but if you tax it so
much, it will cease to be an article of diet for
those who like it; they will necessarily feed on
something else. And if you tax land beyond its
fair rate people will not want it, for it will be too
expensive; speculators will not buy it; builders
will not build upon it. (6) This is the genvof the
collection. "Land cannot be carried away, and
cannot be concealed." That I deny. There was
once a "land-hogger," a sort of land-tax forerunner some five years ago, who went down to the
West of England, and at an election meeting
called upon his hearers to "give us the land."
One of his audience heaved a good-sized healthy
clod of earth at his head, with the remark,
"There'8 a bit to be going on wi\" Will you tell
me that that clod had not been carried away from
somewhere and concealed until the psychological
moment arrived. /

VACANT LOT MABXETS
Vacant lots, as*a general rule, do not contribute
much towards the welfare of the public. Why
should they not be used as distributing centres
by farmers and market gardeners on certain days
of the week? Why should people living miles
from the public market in a large city have to
travel long distances to buy vegetables and fruits
grown in the surrounding country? Vacant
lots in different localities could be used by individual farmers instead of all going to one central
market. No doubt arrangements could be easily
made with the owners for the use of the lot and
with the market inspector regarding fees. If the
housewives in a district where a farmer made a
stand as above mentioned knew that he would be
there with a load of fresh fruit or vegetables upon
certain days, there is little doubt that the produce
would be disposed of to the advantage of both
producer and consumer.���F. C. N.

Prof. a>. Odium, il*A, 9.8c
The following document was placed in my hand
last Sunday evening at a public meeting of the
I. W. W. I have pleasure in giving it to'the reading public, and add a few comments on the contents: To tbe Mlnltter of
Deer 8lr:���
We, the press committee of Local Union	
are hereby Instructed to bring to your notice some of
tbe conditions under which we workers ot Canada are
forced to exist.
First:���The fiendish tyranny of the B. C. government
used tn Its suppression of the miners of Vancouver
Island, and the punishment that Is being meted out to
them In their sentences, is In our opinion without a
parallel ln the history of Canada. Wto are not gelng to
stand for tt.
Secondly:���The case of two ef our members. M.
Brennan and J. Monroe, who have just received a sentence of three and four months respectively In the
Revelstoke gaol. They had lust arrived In town, paid
for their room and board a week In advance, had money
In their pockets and were awaiting time checks for
work done ��and were perfectly sober, but they were
members of the I. W..W., that was enough for the'
.powers that are ruling B. C; these two men were
dragged off to jail, and upon an Inquiry we were Informed that they were held on suspicion, and that they
would be tried at ten o'clock the following morning.
We were there at a quarter of ten, and were coolly Informed that they were convicted of vagrancy at nine
o'clock.: What evidence was submitted ln that secret
court we do not know, but we are going to know.
Thirdly:���We call yonr attention to the case of two
of our members named H. Lloyd and Chas. JClaes, who
are now awaiting sentences in the New Westminster
Gaol for a so-called use of obscene language and
assulting the police. You could get stenographic report of the trial; it would prove to be an interesting
document for your perusal.
Fourthly:���We call your attention to the decision
handed down by one judge, Mclnnls of Vancouver, who
has decided in an inspection case, that a man killed or
Injured in a logging camp, cannot claim damages under
the "VWorkingmen Compensation Act." The question
arises naturally, ls a logger a workingman, or Is he
what the learned Judge thinks he is, an animal.
And last, but not least. We would call your attention to tbe horrible conditions ia the construction camps
of B. C, which are a disgrace to the human race, and
which we are determined to alter with or without yoar
co-operation. Below you will find what we are determined to have, peacefully lf it is anyway possibVo, but
otherwise if necessary.
Here below Ib what we want and what we have
determined to have.
First:���The release of the miners and others men*
tioned herein.

'_,--  Mr. James J. Dougan, member of  the School Board, explained the reason for the School Board not calling  an election to fill the place caused  by the resignation of one of the  members in July last. He denied that  there had been secret meetings of  the board. Only the meetings of the  management committee, building and  grounds committee and finance committee were secret.  The board had stated in a communication to the press-that the cost of an  election to fill the vacant position  would be $1000. In view of the money stringency it was thought best not  to call for an election. Since the  public had apparently acquiesced in  this the board had considered that  their actions were approved.  ' y . " '.' y \ y  x'-x ' ' '���������' ���������'������������������.  The meeting accepted Trustee Dou-  gan's explanation of the so-called secret meetings on the motion of Mr.  Maxwell Smith, out would not concur  in the action of the board with regard  to the failure to call for an election.  Mr. Smith said the -Board of Trustees  had presumed to take it upon themselves that an election was not ^necessary. The Scbool Board, he said, had  no option in the matter. The law distinctly provided that the board;tmjst  take immediate action to fill any vacant seat on the board, he said.  There was a disposition among certain members of the association to  pass a motion calling on the School  Board, to allow the press to attend the  meetings of the various committees.  Mr. Smith thought that matters  should be simplified as much as possible by not going too fully into  School Board affairs. He thought  a readjustment in methods of doing  business would come about as a result of the recent investigation.,' The  meeting concurred in this sentiment.  y.y  |MttMM>M������������������tt������Mt������������������������-lt->t-HltfHM->t������t*>ft*lt������*l������*>*IM  Phone Seymour 043  Pavies & Sanders  General Contractors  55-66 DAVIS CHAMKRS  615 HASTINGS ST. W.  Dr. Westbrook Addresses  University Womeo's Club  Dr. Westbrook,-the president of the  Provincial University, addressed the  University Women's Club at their  regular meeting on. Friday evening.  As the plans for the new university  are evidently. those which have to  mature and approach the ideal, he  was not able to .give any details .of the  structure, ��������� but spoke of the many  thousands of miles which had been  traversed in'search of those ideals  which could be adapted to our university. Another trip at least, he  said, would be necessary, -and that  would be for men. The staff, of the  university should be men. of calibre  whose biggest work would he done  in British Columbia and for this  Province.  The state or provincial university,  'Dr. Westbrook said, was, in his opinion, the highest form of a university.  He emphasized strongly the idea that  this university should be for the people of the province. He spoke of the  necessity of agriculture being  taught in it, and among other things  he thought that chemistry, as a fundamental course,, should occupy an  important place in the curriculum.  Proceeding, he pointed out that in  order for a university to do it's proper work for the people it should cooperate with Other activities of the  province, and one of these which he  used for the purpose bf illustration  was the Normal school. The university should, he said, take up in the  training of teachers, those things  which a Normal school could not  handle.  The speaker made a number of  suggestions as to work which the  university women might be interested  in helping on, as: Household economics, the library, public health; the  dormitory system, the gymnasium  and recreation field and others, and  said he looked tp this club as being  one of the chief factors in the future  development of the new university.  At the close of the address those  present were entertained by the  graduates of Manitoba college. ^7-7  The next meting of the crob will  be held in the Progress Club rooms,  and will be a mock parliament, where  theibill for the enfranchizing men will  be considered.  ���������������.  Collingwood  Mr. and Mrs. Price gave a successful entertainment at the Institute on  Tuesday evening. These social functions will, in the future, take place  every Tuesday evening.  Preceding the opening of the new  Knox Presbeterian church at Collingwood, which takes place next Sunday,  an address will be given tonight by  Dr. Proctor.

A letter was read from the Minister of Justice at Ottawa regarding  the resolution against racing at Min-  oru Park, who said that it was merely  a matter of administering the law.  A letter was read from the Kerrisdale Ratepayers regarding certain improvements along the scheme of  making Greater Vancouver a beautiful  Vancouver by establishing a building  line and putting in cement curbs and  placing a boulevard tax for the upkeep of boulevards and suggesting  that a flower show be provided for in  each ward. The Grandview association instructed the secretary to reply  and that an important suggestion  should be added that they demand  in subdividing, a provision to be made  for lanes.  The matter of a Board of Commissioners or a commission form of  government was brought forward,  discussed and laid over until the next  meeting.

Fifty yeara Is a very abort time In  tbe life of a forest. Most of tbe timber  being cut In British Colombia today Is  over two hundred years old���������some ot  It is over eight hundred.  Tbere Is a crisis comttg���������when tbe  forests wbicb for a century men bave  thought -inesbaustlble" are going to  be greatly depleted.  We must prepare for tbat contingency.  It takes years to ������crow trees���������not  hours or days.  To keep us In timber, pulp, an equable water supply, fish and game, we  must bave trees.  Stop tbe fires.  Stop the waste In logging, milling  and utilization.  Stop tbe insect and fungus depredations.  Cut timber only when It Is "ripe"���������  when lt will produce as much value as  possible In usefulness to men.  Plant up tbe waste places.  Plant the needed shelter belts.  These take time, they take men, they  take money, but they are worth It  France has spent 135,000,000 In plant  ing trees ob watersheds.  Germany spends up to $13 per acre  per annum on some forests, and gets  gross returns up to $24 per acre, thus  yielding net profits up to $11 per acre  every year.  Aa a whole, German forests produce  about $2.00 net per acre annually.  Canada spends much less than one  cent per acre per annum on the forest  lands under management.  If we set the fire loss against the  timber product, Canada's forest balance sheet ehows an enormous deficit.  How can Canadians stop the losses,  arrest the waste?  There is but one answer.  Public opinion, public interest, public conscience are the only forces that  will ever make for progress.  CANADA'S GREATEST DAIRY BUSINESS  We wonder If our Western Call  readers realize that the largest Hairy  building and plant In Canada is situated right here In Vancouver? Let  oa take our readers on a tour* of inspection through thts great, new pure  food factory which haa had trouble  right 'from ita Inception In supplying  the rapidly-growing demand for Ita  product, and which is already  planning new departments, new machinery and enlarged housing capacity  for a great and growing business.  The main building of this Interesting  establishment, used up 112 ' tons of  structural steel and 3,450 tons ot con-1  crate, In. ita construction. It house*  whole batteries ot automatic bottle  sterilisers, milk pasteurisers; convey*  ors, babcock testers, bottle fillers and  cappers, clarlfiers, and other Inventions of great intricacy. The most in*  terestlng exhibit ln the boose, bow-  ever, and the one absolutely, essential  to tbe prosperity of the Standard Milk  Company, la Ita worthy president,  Down in the Ottawa Valley, in old On  tario, he Is affectionately known aa  "Ned Clark.'* For years, every little  rural market and stock fair in Eastern  Ontario and Western Quebec, has  known and counted on "Ned Clark,"  Ottawa buyer of horses and cattle, and  purveyor 6t ready cash for good anl*  malB-y-o- which he was such an expert  judge. Incidentally, and when he was  not paying out money for beef and dairy cattle, draught horses, standard-  breds and hackneys, Mr. Clark found  ���������time to devote some attention to farm*  ing and especially to his "Ottawa Dairy," which developed under his guidance into a million-dollar-a*year business���������and when you come to think of  it, that is a very tidy little milk business after all. .........  Then in a moment of weakness, Mr.  Clark decided to take a trip West���������and  of course what followed was a dead  loss to the Ottawa Valley. The man  behind the Ottawa Dairy and other  Eastern Ontario interests became hypnotized by the combination of Western  American enterprise, and Southern  English climate which has wrought tta  howl for pure   milk���������while   to the  Northward  Vancouver's  sky-scrapers  broke the blue outline of Burrard Inlet, and back ot tbat the Mountains  with "The Lions" looking down from  their early snows. "Westward lay the  Gulf of Georgia, where the ships go  out after more New Zealand batter.  Such a prospect would seem to warrant the, preparatory achievement of  the Standard Milk Co.  In connection with the establishment is one of the most sanitary and  up-to-date stables to be found anywhere.   Fifty-five horses work seven  days a week, and are. fed and groomed  as auch specimens of equine nobility  deserve.   A trip through these stables  is aa good as a visit to a horse show.  Mr. Clark' naive   explanation   was:  "Good horses and rigs are a first-class  advertisement."  Some of these horses  are imported, and among the finest of  the show-animals is tbe President's  own driver, hla "automobile" he will  probably tell you.   Wben a man loves  a horse as "Ned Clark" does, there  ls never any divorce in favor of the  more modern buss wagon.   Features  of tbe stable are the addition with  the suspended floor, the provision of  running water throughout,  and  the  tremendously useful grain chute.  In providing supefb accommodation  for Its equine,pay-roll, the Standard  Milk Co. but   carries out 'its broad  policy with, reference to taking care  of equipment and staff.   There is a  toilet and wash-room on every floor  of the main building, tor the use of  the men employed.   There is an up*  tojdate  laundry.    There  is an   employee's lavatory    which    would do  credit to   any    metropolitan /hotel.  There is a social  room where' the  drivers met. regularly to lunch together, to talk over experiences and to  get mental stimulus and equipment  for serving the country's customers  better than ever.   *  The establishment ls laid ont ao  tbat one may drive around and be*  tween tbe various buildings anywhere.  It is lighted to perfection, for every  purpose save indoor photography.

In short,  "Ned Clark" got things together for  the Dominion of Canada's greatest  dairy business.; <  Wben you are shown through tbe  largest dairy building in Canada, you  will discover at every turn, tbat it has  been planned on view of future growth.  Big as it is, complete and modern as  it is, every department can conveniently enlarge its equipment and easily  handle more business. The  cans and bottles are cleaned, down In  the basement���������whether they need It or  not. Some ot the bottles need It, for  not all the Inhabitants of the numerous metropolitan boroughs of Greater  Vancouver are disciples ot the men  who affirmed that "cleanliness was  next to godliness." The very dirty bottles are soaked for twelve hours,  brushed and scrubbed beyond recognition, and then sent over to the regular bottle-washer Here tbey get a  cold-water bath, then three times  through rinsing fluid, then three times  through steaming compartments and  speck on them anywhere���������the whole  process accompanied by the whirr of  electric and steam-driven machinery.  Electric installation wired to 200 h.p.  makes tbe wheels go "round" and a  40-horse-power steam-boiler supplies  the steam necessary for sterilization.  On the second���������that is, on the  ground floor���������takes place the process  of pasteurization of milk. Here, too,  are the thousands of bottles filled and  capped. On the nexC floor above, are  the cooling rooms which receiving  the milk and cool it by latest ay-  proved "Simplex" machinery, after it  has been heated to 142 degrees. The  cans and bottles themselves are stored  on the fourth floor. There is also a  gaily-decorated hall being fitted up for  serving buttermilk, ice cream and  such-like refreshments to "Standard"  patrons. Mr. Clark who did the honors of showing our representative  over thiB great pure food factory, from  basement to top floor, finally took him  out on the roof of the building whence  might be seen spread below in all.  four directions, the domain of the j  Standard Milk Co. South and East to'  the horizon, stretched the vista of  homes of British Columbians���������some  thousands of them very tiny British  Columbians, just able  to sit up  and  refrigerated milk and batter and kindred products���������everytblng absolutely  spotless, and the whole shimmering  whiteness relieved by growing palms.  In the waiting room yon may meet Mr.  Ned Clark himself, who ts managing  director of the concern; Mr. Guy O.  Clarke, tbe sales manager; Mr. Roy E.  Clarke, the. foreman of works; or Mr.  A. M. Campbell, the exceedingly  capable New Zealander, wbo ts secretary of tbe Standard Milk Co. In  any case, you will have no trouble In  understanding lust how tbls important new Western Canadian Industry  came io bave such a uniquely successful beginning.  X ***.$_?

A largely-attended meeting of the  Victoria Road Improvement Association was held last night.   Reeve Kerr  was,the principal speaker. He dealt  at constdeN-ble length with the proposal! of the council in regard to the  acquisition of industrial sites and the  establishment of municipal gas and  electrc light and power plants. Sub*  sequently, after the reeve left' the  meeting, Municipal Electrical Engineer Rawden was questioned very  closely as to the details of his report  to the council on the electrical, proposition. At the conclusion of the  meeting a resolution was passed endorsing the policy of the council and  thanking Reeve Kerr and Mr. Rawden  for their attendance and addresses. :  The Municipal Council ��������� Monday  agreed to allow the Vancouver City  Council to lay a water main along  Fraser- avenue, from Twenty-fifth  avenue, to supply the Mountain View  Cemetery with water,    i  ���������������������������������������������������������������.���������.'  Maln^ Street Improvement Association, at the meeting of Monday evening, resumed the. question of the  lighting of Main Street A letter was  read from the light and power committee in answer to the letter sent  to the council by the association with  regard to the better lighting of Main  Street. This letter said the matter  was referred to the electric engineer  and that word would soon be forthcoming.    Councillor Third, aa chair  man of the light and power commit*  tee, aald that the reason more ot the  necessary lights had not been Installed was that the council were think*  Ing of Installing a new systein,ot arc  Hght8 which would be municipally  owned. This year 130,000*. had been  expended in lights In'South Vancouver, and as the British Columbia franchise had seven years yet to ran. the  council did not approve' of extending  their system. The arc lights which  would be installed were to be similar,  said the speaker, to the one being  tested at the hall near the water  house, and another one was shortly  to be teated at Twenty-fifth Avenue  and Main Street Mr. Third said that  at a meeting held today, Monday, it  had been decided to put in twenty*  five new lights, which would coat for  Installing about $26.00. The electrician had!been appointed to get the  power from the British Columbia Electric Company to light the lights if  they were reasonable. Main Street,  Councillor Third continued, had' been  neglected. About ten new lights were  needed lh this region. Mr. dough,  Mr. Prowse, Ex-Reeve Pound and Mr.  Truesdale were appointed a committee to act wlthCounclllor\ Third, chair-  man ot. the, light committee, to aee  what could be done for a fairer distribution of lights, ao that Main'Street  would receive Its share.

We would like to have an answer to this at your  earliest convenience, as upon your answer depends our  future action   With best wishes, we are yours tor better conditions,  PRESS COMMITTEE.  Local Union No.  Industrial Workers  of the World.  Seal  Address.: J '..   These men talk as they think, and speak their  minds clearly, even if somewhat rudely to authority. Perhaps they would gain more by a different  attitude of language anc[ spirit. This is their  matter chiefly, though it is of a public sort as well,  to some extent. What I am after in this short  series of remarks is as follows:���������No. 1. "The release of the miners, etc." ^  This might be wise, or a very grave mistake.  The "demand" to have them released should be  based on sound reason, looking at the highest good  for the whole public, and not simply being governed by fellow-feeling, which may be wise or  very foolish in its requests. ,     ' *  2nd���������"An eight hour day, etc." I confess that  I am of opinion that no man should have to work  more than eight hours, excepting in a very extreme case, ahd not often repeated either, even in  that rare case.  "Four dollars a day as a minimum wage" cannot be fixed by legislation, or by any other means,  without making provision for inequality of efficiency in the workmen, a consideration of conditions  of work, employment, nature of the work and the  varying degrees of competition. However, in connection with railway camps, there might well be  a general increase of wages without injury to the  companies, or the country, \ghich in the end must  pay the bills for construction.  3rd���������"The abolition of all employment agencies  where office fees are charged." Here again I am  of opinion there should be no such institutions as  we have at present in this regard. The employment of men, or finding jobs for men at the standard cost of $1.00 is frequently a fraud, and there  is good ground for believing that certain employment offices and railway hirers of men form  combination to practically-rob the helpless workmen. In my opinion, where large bodies of men  are required for constructing railways, the government, should arrange certain central offices to provide an easy way to bring the men and employers  together, without cost. The cost to the country  would be very little, and very severe hardships  would be prevented, and much dishonest wbrk in  the way of charges which result in vanity and  failuer made impossible.  4th���������I have nothing to say on this matter. So  far as I am able to discern, I have unbounded  faith in the Judges of British Columbia. They  assuredly aim at administering law in the wisest  and most humane manner, holding at all times to  the necessities of reaching the highest good for  all.  . 5th���������''A bath house in every camp,'' This is  simple,. necessary, just, and intensely sane.* No  large camp of employees, out in the woods, on the  prairies or in the mountains, should hie permitted  to exist without provision being made for the  comfort, health and cleanliness of the workers.  6th���������" An incrieasie of hospitals along the railroad lines," etc. The facts in this relation I am  unacquainted with, and therefore am unable to  make comment beyond saying that hospitals, clean,  commodious and properly attended, should be  within easy reach of alhthe camps.  7th���������-"Better sleeping and4������nitary conditions  in all camps.'' I do not know what the conditions  are like at the present time; but it goes without  saying that these'two factors should be properly  and humanely provided for the workers who, in  their necessary toil, are placed beyond and out of  reach of the ordinary homes, boarding houses, am*  stopping places such as usually are found in even  sparsely settled districts.  8th���������"The abolition of the dollar fee for medical attention, etc. ,  I would say that this might be related to the  question of wages.^ For instance, if the minimum  of $4 a day were paid, then it would be childish  to make a demand or cutting off the fee of $1.00  per month for medical a^d. Silver spoons are not  required to feed men with good stomachs, and a  strong appetite. And no man with a manly spirit  would grunt on being required to pay $1.00 a  month for his personal protection against sickness  and loss through medical neglect; But if the  wages are made too low, as is too often the case,  and especially where the medical aid is a farce, as  at times is the case, then I imagine there is good  ground for cutting off the medical charge.  9th���������"AU roest to be paid in current coin of the  country, or negotiable paper not subject to discount." This is reasonable within fair limits.  Too often a paper is given instead of money, and  the men cannot get to where that paper will and  must be honored. Hence they are driven to certain scalping and discounts by men who., are on  hand to do the skinning act.   This is not right.  10th���������" Walking delegates of the I. W. W. to  have free access to all the camps, etc."  Within honest and just limits this would be all  right. But in the past it has been proved that  strife resulted from too much "walking" of these  delegates among the men at work. If good, honest, capable, well-balanced men were always  chosen for these positions, there could be no harm  from their examining the camp conditions. But  perhaps this could be better arranged by having  certain men appointed and paid by the government to do this work of examining the conditions,  pay, etc., of the laborers in these railway camps.  In closing my remarks I wish to say that last  Sunday evening I had the pleasure of talking to  the I. W. W.'s of Vancouver in their hall on Cordova Street. I talked for one.Jiour, and was not  disturbed once. After finishing, I was asked many  questions in simple and plain words. Then I  answered in the midst of perfect conduct. After  this several spoke and talked from their different  view-points, and then I had the final word. I  am pleased to say I never saw a better conducted  meeting in my life. The hall was packed, about  400 being present. My topic was "Economic  Reformers." The discussion was of a lively  character, and some of the speakers did not hesitate to talk pretty strongly to the chief talker of  the evening. The conduct throughout was an  eye-opener, and raised the Vancouver I. W._W.  in my estimation. These men are on the right  road to do two things���������to educate themselves and  to educate those in conditions of a more favorable  character. I advised them to ask His Worship  Mayor Baxter, the Attorney-General and the  Premier, Sir Richard, to address them in the  future. There could be nothing of hurt come  from this course, and much good might result  thereby.  ��������� vAi9mmM:x'y^S  264B Molo St. 2d otoro from llth Mo.  510:"': 7      ; ICE CREAM PARLOR   r:-iA^0^^^M  AiAyyMiMStiA  yyiiiiill  *'^i;A'.  ���������" "'������������������:���������.'.''. ^tAX'xAy^-yM  High Grade Chocolates and Table Fruits:ax$I %M$i|tl  ; .-,   Tobaccos and Stationery. ���������������������������yyx-y%$yW^^k  ���������������������������> ,*..s.+4.++lt j.+.MmUmHi, l"M-'!������-���������.������������������ *4>   ������������������������������������< M H'-M-H **>*** ������**M # **** *%X^^^m  ������������������"������������������-���������- ���������- ��������� -   y'yy^ms^wM  "''v���������^--S?_'-'���������!wS,  D*l*t+l*tiY Terminal City Pr-^latdf  r   rillllllg   im Weitadtttcr M.

OF-DOUBT  frri;  TKe recollection ol the captain's threat  at the summer-house Instantly recurred to memory. "Here, you lads,  skulk down into these bushes, while  I try that balcony. That ls the library,  Isn't lt, Eric? I thought so; I've been  under guard there twice. The window shows no light, but some one ls  in the room beyond. Give me a leg  up, Tom, and stand close so you can  hear if I speak."  It was not high from the ground,  but I could not grip the top of the rail  without help. With Tom's assistance  I went over lightly enough, and without noise. The window was the one  which had been broken during the  first assault on the bouse, and never  repaired. I found ample room for  crawling through. The door into the  hall stood partly ajar, a; little light  streaming through the crack, so I experienced no difficulty In moving about  freely. A glance told me the apart*  ment was unoccupied, although I  heard the murmur of distant voices  earnestly /conversing. Occasionally  an emphatic oath sounded clear and  distinct My first thought was that  the men with me would be better concealed here than in the bushes below,  and I leaned over the rail, and bade  them Join me. Within another minute  the three of us were tn the room intently listening. I stole across to the  crack of the door. The hall was  empty so-far as I could see looking  toward the rear of the house, and the  volees w> heard were evidently In the  -Liiiing-room. Occasionally there was  a clatter of dishes; or the scraping of  * chair on the polished floor. Otoe  -voice aaat out an order to a servant,  a nasal voice, slightly Jhlckesrsd by  wtae, and I wheeled about, Basing In*  qatrtngly into Mortimer's face.  "That's Grant,* he said i-ralckly,  "tad hate flrfffk."-; .  rf thought so; that's when he la  liMtyr dangerous.  8tay close here; If  ftfh. ftotrwl Out:  awt������������t It It How?  Heard From Culvert"  the hallway ta clear I am going to get  Into the shadow tbere under tbe stairs.  lHave your weapons ready."  ': Where tbe fellow was wbo had been  iat the front door I could not determine. He had disappeared somehow,  and I slipped along the wall for the  necessary ten feet like a shadow, aad  crept ln beneath the shelter of the  staircase. From here I could look Into  tbe room opposite, although only a  portion of the space was revealed.  There was no cloth on the table, and  but few dishes, but I counted a half*  dosen bottles, mostly empty, and numerous glasses. Grant was at ont  end, his uniform dusty and stained,  bat Ms eyes alone betraying IntoxJea-  tion. Beside him was a tall, stoop*  shouldered man. with matted beard,  wearing th* eoat of a British Grenadier, bnt with an insignia of rank  jrippod from It Be had a mean month,  and yedvv., fang-like teeth were displayed 99maf*t he spoke. Beyond  this ssOswV tad only half seen  from  CH,  .XXL  where I crouched, waa a heavy-set Individual, his face almost purple, with  a thatch of uncombed red hair. He  wore the cocked hat of a Dragoon,  poshed to the back of his head, his  feet were encased ln long cavalry  boots, crossed on the table, and he  was pulling furiously at a pipe, the  stem gripped firmly between his teeth.  Who the bearded man might be I had  no mesne of knowing, but this beauty  was without doubt Fagin. I stared at  him, fascinated, recalling the stories  of his fiendish crwlty, my heart thumping violently, while my fingers gripped  the butt of my pistol. Then, without  warning, a man stepped out of the  darkened parlor, passed within three  feet of my hiding place, and stood  within the dining-room door. The  three within looked at him, and Fagin  roared out:  "What ls it now?   Heard from Cul-  verr  They Send for Claire.  I could only see the fellow's back,  with hair hanging low over the collar,  but his voice was clear.  "Got here five minutes ago. The  preacher is locked in the parlor."  "By God! Good! Now we can play  out the same, eh, Captain? Or," turning about suspiciously, and staring at  the other, who sat with eyes shaded  by one hand, "are you weakening as the  time draws near?"  "Hell's fire! No! We gave her a  choice, and she only laughed at it 111  go on now to spite the wench; only I  think we should bring in the boy first,  and prove to her that we've actually  got him."  Fagin emptied the glass ln his hand,  giving utterance to an oath as he replaced it on the table. -  "Ter as chicken-hearted drunk as  sober. Grant," he said coarsely. "Did  yer hear the fool, Jones, an* after all  I've told him?" .".���������''..  Tbe bearded' man nodded silently,  his eyes shifting from one face to the  Oilier. Fagin grinned, and' poured out  another drink.  "Now listen again," he went on, half  angrily. "That boy's worth money  ter us���������a thousand pounds���������but it  wouldn't do yer any good ter be mixed  up in the affair, would it? What chance  would yer have in this estate, or fer  yer commission either, if Howe or  Clinton got an inklin' of yer game?  Good Lord, man! they'd hang yer instead of the other fellow. You'll have  ter 'lie some as it is, I reckon, ter explain why yer left Sir Henry, an' came  down here. Ilave yer got that fact  inter yer brains?":���������'������������������.'yy  Grant glared at him wickedly, but  remained silent across the table.  ���������Ter already in bed enoutb, without  buntih' more trouble. Better leave the  boy alone, l thought at first we'd  hare ter use him, but I don't now. Let  the girj believe he's deserted, and that  yer in a position ter help blm. That  will serve yer purpose hotter than the  other scheme. It may awaken her  gratitude, her sweet love!"  "Damn her love!"  ������������������so it isn't love, eh, that makes yer  so anxious. I thought as much* What  Is It, then���������revenger'  Grant held his breath a moment, his  don eyes on the faces of the two men.  "Well, I might as wen ten yon." he  snarled at last "I loved her once, I  guess; anyhow I wanted her badly  enough. I want her now, but not ln  Just the same way. I want to show  ���������her I'm the master. I want to give  her a lesson, and that cub brother of  ,hers* I'd have got them all, the Colonel with them, if that damned Colonial spy hadn't stolen- my coat I had  -them, dead to rights, Fagin, and the  papers to prove it Now I don't care  bow It's done, so I get her. I thought  she'd marry me to save the boy, but  lf sbe wont, why then, yon carry out  your plan���������what Is tt?"  Fagin laughed, again emptying his  glass.  "Easy enough. She's alone, except  fer ber father, and be can't get out of  bed. We've got Jenks here, an' the  damned old coward will do whatever  I tell blm."  "But she despises me���������"  "Oh, no! -Well make yon a victim.  That wiU leave things In proper shape  between yer two. Well play lt oft as  'a drunken lark���������eh. Jones? My God!  lt wont be the first time we've done  tbe trick either. Do you remember  that love-sick couple over at Tom's  River, Ned? Never laughed so much  tn my life. This is a better one. Lord!  but won't old Mortimer rave, an'  mighty little good It win do him.  Come, what do yer say, Grant? Are  yer game?"  "Hell's flie���������yes." He got to his  feet gripping the back of bis chair.  "Bring���������bring 'em in; this is a good  place."  Fagin struck the table with his fist  "Of course it is, drink ter the bride  after the ceremony. Bill, bring in the  preacher."  . "It was growing daylight I could  perceive the glow of the sky out  through the window, but the candles  still sputtered on the table, casting  trim lights and Shadows on the faces  of the three men. As Bill disappeared  into the parlor, I stole silently back  to the library door.  "Tom," I whispered briefly, "find the  boys, and bring them ln here, through  that broken window. Tbey are in the  orchard to the right and there are no  guards In front. Move lively, but be  quWt-  "What ta It Major?" asked young  Morttmer, esgerly.  "I cant explain now    I must get  back where I can see and hear.   But  , there is going to be a fight   Hold the  men ready bere until I call.   See that  their weapons are ln good order."  I caught the glint of his eye, but  could wstjt no longer.   Indeed I was  snuggled    under   the  stairs, when Bill came forth, gripping  the collar of his prisoner's coat, and  urging him down the ball. I crouched  lower, the morning light threatening  to reveal my hiding place, yet with  mind'more at ease, now I knew the  men were close at hand. Within five  minutes the entire squad would be  crowded into that room, eager for  trouble to begin. Probably Fagin "did  not have a half-dosen fellows in the  house. If we could strike swiftly  enough we might overpower them all,  without creating alarm outside, where  the main body lay. Some carelessness had brought us good luck in hav*  int the front of the house left un*  guarded. These thoughts swept over  me, and left me confident The time  had come when I was to serve her, to  prove my own worthiness. I felt ready  and eager for the trial.  I caught a glimpse of Jenks' face, as  BUI Jerked him forward. The man  was fay with terror, hia parchment*  Uka skin seamed and oontorted.

' <*Go on back ter the front door, BUI,"  he ordered roughly. "This fellow'U  never run away; his legs wouldht  ;carry him.

Jones straightened up, and pushed  -past tbe preacher, the stairs creaking  under his weight as he went up over  pay head.

Starting the* game with one man  short. Point Grey went ahead with  the edvantage of a downhill slope,  and lead by two goals at half time.  In jthe second halt the C. P.

The game resulted in a  draw, namely, four goals each.  The C. P. R. eleven were the same,  team that recently journeyed to Kamloops and drew with the. champion  C. P. R. aggregation.    .  Tomorrow (Saturday), the Point  Grey eleven meet the Kitsilano Baptists at Kerrisdale, the latter team being the "leaders" in the Vancouver  Junior Alliance League, and a close  game is anticipated. *  Results of games to date: Pomt  Grey versus McLeans, lost 1 to 2;  versus Bank of B.

A deputation was  appointed to present tbe resolutions  to the council.       *  Comment on the fact tbat there, was  only one policeman for the entire district on a twelve-hour shift, and tbat  the lack of light was a distinct menace, was very J������i-ter. Reference was  made to secession as the only remedy  that could be seen for the situatlWi.  It was decided to bring the attention of Premier McBride to the situation. When the question was before  the last session of the Legislature, it  was stated that Reeve Churehill, who  had opposed the secession movement,  bad alven his word that they   would  and come over to Vancouver, when.  Shaughnessy Heights would*' get its  share. He said the police service at  present was absolutely inefficient.  The following1 committee waa appointed to draft tbe resolutions and  bring them to the notice of the Point  Grey Council: Messrs. W. Salsbury,  F. Rounsefell, T. Fletcher, Swing  Buchan, George Macdonald, J. N. Ellis  and L. Wright Mr. D. yon,Cramer  acted as secretary of the meeting.  The , Strathcona Heights Improvement Association asked the Point Grey  Council on Tuesday evening that they  would take up the question of extension of the Bayview telephone district  to Include the Strathcona Heights district as far as Whitehead Road. The  council was requested to present the  request of the ratepayers to the B. C.  Telephone Company.  Col. Markham' stated the company  had said they were willing to grant  the extension if the council requested  It.  Ex Councillor Allan asked on behalf  of the Kerrisdale ratepayers that the  company also be requested to abolish  the tolls for the KerriBdale and  Eburne districts.  The council was of the opinion that,  since the company had promised the  extension for the Strathcona district,  it was best to place that question before the company first.  The request of the association was  granted and.a committee was named  to Join with the Strathcona ratepayers  In the presentation of the matter to  the B. C. Telephone Company.  The bylaw Introduced by Councillor Cunliffe to divide the municipality  ot Point Grey into six wards instead  of five wards, as at present, was given  its three readings and passed. There  will accordingly be six councillors  and a reeve next year.  .!���������  KERRISDALE.  Mrs. W. Reid entertained on Friday  at a thimble tea.

It is this wide range which contributes largely to its present importance  but tbe qualities of the wood promise  a still greater use in the future, for  it Is s^trong, hard, finegrained wood  which takes a high polish and can be  stained to imitate the more expensive  woocic,- such as mahogany, cheny or  walnut. "Wavy" birch is an accidental form due to cross-grain, somewhat  similar to "curly" maple, and. is highly prized for ornamental work.

Mayor Cottrell explained that to understand the importance of the movement , among the various peoples  where these congresses were held  it muBt be understod that they assembled at the invitation of the respective governments, and when an invitation went out officially from the Italian  government for the recent assembly at  Milan, lt meant that the Italian government, which, with.the possible exception of the French, waa more Interested in the growing of grapes than  any other government in the world,  and whose revenue is drawn from this  source more than the revenues of any  other in tho world according to the  population, that they had the courage  to send an invitation to this congress  and help on an agitation to suppress  their greatest industry.
