For many years trade experts have bemoaned  the fact that Canadian "imports", have been far  in excess of "exports." The latest,figures of the  Customs Department show that this condition has  , been changed, and for the month of October  -exports far exceed all imports.  These figures also  show a marked increase over the same month  last year.  Exports for October, 1913, were $57,144,000,  ���������and the imports, both dutiable and free, were  $52,381,000, or a total trade for the month of  $109,525,000.  In October, 1912, the exports were $33,785,000,  and imports $61,045,000, or a total of $94,830,000.  So that, we have an increase in trade for Octoben  1913} overthe^^ corresponding month last year, of  ' $14,695,000, or over 15 per cent, and an increase  in exports of $23,359,000, or about 70 per cent.  The total trade for the seven months of this  .fiscal year to date is $666,165,000, as against  ,$606,542,000 for same period of 1912.  7 These fi_nres speak for themselves, and require  little comment to demonstrate that in spite of the  , money stringency Canada wi prosperous.  There is no doubt bnt that much credit is due  ' the Dominion Guveriwnent for this happy condition.   By wise and honest administration they  bave fostered the trade of Canada.  Ih the United  States trade has dropped off at an alarming rate, ,  while in Canada we can boast an increase.  A 0XtfflMM>? Pf  -*������  Jn the great manufacturing town pf Liege, out  of 40,000 working men 10,000 live in the country  *they. do it because they have cheap transit that  takes them into the country. How do they get  that! They have nationalized the railways. They  have not allowed great monopolies to strangle  towns. The result is that they are able to get the  most extraordinary fares. In Belgium you have  30 miles of railways for every 22 miles here; ypu  have 23 miles of light railway for every one-third  railehere, and they have 70 miles of tramway for  every mile you have here. In Belgium a workman  can travel six miles each way every day for 25  cents a week; }2% miles each way every day for  30 cents per week *, 25 miles each way every day  for 39 cents per week; 62 miles each way every  day for 621/_ cents per week.  So we. have come to the conclusion that a man  who likes to come to the country to live ought to  be encouraged, whatever bis work; there has been  top much discouraging of people to come and live  in the villages. ,  You find the landlord with his blunderbuss  turning out the man whom he does not know by.  face because he is a "stranger." No man is a  stranger if he is of British blood in England.���������  (From Lloyd George's great speech at Swindon.)  Contrast with these figures, as given by the  great British statesman, the rates we are paying  in British Columbia.  From Victoria to Prospect Park, 6^ miles, 25c  each way straight, with absolutely no commutation.  From-Vancouver to New Westminster, 12 miles,  25c straight each way.  There is something rotten somewhere and  somehow.  CIVICi ELECTION CANDIDATES  FOR 1914  Pressure is being brought to bear on the following well-known citizens of Vancouver to induce  them to serve the city in an official capacity during 1914:  Mayor���������T. S. Baxter.  Aldermen���������-  Ward  The Bridge Company ref uses to proceed with the construction of the bridge  until all Hie fundsi are in hand.   Is this.good business?  We state without hesitancy, no, it is not y Now what aw i^e facts in ti  terl The company have subscribed by the cities, municipalities, the Provisional  Government and the Dominion Government enough funds to keep matters going  up to point of completion of the bridge. .They have right to issue bonds for an  amount not actually provided for. They say they cannot sell the bonds. Have  they ever tried? Everyone knows they have not. These bonds are or should be  almost as good as municipal bonds; they will be secured by assei_s of $2,500,000.00  against $750,000.00. Surely the element of risk is reduced to a minimum, and there  remains no valid reason why the tenders should not be called for at once, and this  important work proceeded with.  -      ,���������; -        * - ��������� '���������  It has been suggested by the Provincial Oovernment that the bridge might be  reduced to a mere railway bridge to accommodate the Pacific Great Eastern.  This cannot be allowed at all. The project as it is at present is the least we as citizens can Accept. '     i"     .

To illustrate: Recently a prominent transportation man, Mr. Stanley Pollar  of San Francisco, personally visited Montreal for the purpose of arranging for  dockage and transfer facilities. JJe stated he had made a tender for 35,000,000 feet  of timber for the Toronto Harbor works, and purposed bringing it through the canal  and transfer it at Montreal. The result of his trip was that he secured an option to  lease a most suitable site for transferring the lumber and also made arrangements  for lake steamers.  Now would it not be well for Vancouver and H. C. shippers to look to their  interests? Why wait until some enterprising "Yank" has secured some real tactical advantage and pay tribute to him ?  ^*^w^i^.i|..;..}..}.i*.A^w|M^w}^r*<.*^*^*w*^*^M{M{^^������^w  South Vancouver-  Reeve���������J.

Th������  Jict wafes^ Tentoj more detcrB^vd^pa^  forwardwm^tx^^  ready to act M a part of the German fleet tnd  forces. No wonder that Germany pushes forward  night and day in the wre belief that when the  hour of strife arrives she will,have the above shipa  in such relationship to the whi*te theifeire^ol war  as to ensure success to her ind her allies.  As I ventured to write sometime ago on tbis  matter, I said that when Germany and hep aUie-s  are prepared to strike, tbey will do so without  one word of warning. And before there is an  open act of war, these ships of the aboye powers  will be so placed as to seize almost the entire  ships of value belonging to Denmark, Hollandr  Belgium, Norway and Sweden. Thia will be done  so as to perfectly amplify and round out the immense naval and commercial fleets of the allies,  and also to prevent Britain from capturing the  ships of those smaller nations. The contest will  be undertaken before Russia can be in any atate  of preparedness to co-operate with Britain and  France.  The British and French fleets will be face to  face with the above combination; Spain and For*  tugal may or may not he neutral. How would  the conflict terminate with the above ranging of  forces f How would the armies of these nations  act? and what would they perform in co-operation with the fleets or independent of themt  It would be, humanly speaking, a sure catastro-  phy-for France. With the three big nations in  arms against her,*4U-d the Russian fleets a nonentity, it would go hard with France, if there be no  further lining up of other big powers. But here  we begin to see daylight. Ae surely as the sun  shines, the Empire of Japan and the United  States would decide to act in combination on the  moment rather than take chances of being crushed  a little later.  The result would be that on one side we would  have Britain, France, Japan and the United  States. On the other we would see Germany,  Austria, Italy and a sprinkling of the smaller  powers which would be forced to act as co-partners so as to save themselves from speedy destruction. In this coming war there will be no  mercy, no humanitarianigmJn the cold calculations preceding the combat.  What would be the result of such a double  lining up on the high seas? Here is my opinion  as to what the final course \vould be, no matter  what might.be the various mixed intervening results: Before the war had gone far forward, Russia would be in the European military combination as the second or first partner. The seas  would be swept -clear of the European vessels  which would mostly be captured or sunk. This  is inevitable for many reasons, but especially because the beginning of the final drama is about  due, and will be a part of the series of conflicts  now within sight.  The world of great powers will be grouped  somewhat as I have stated. The fleets of BritauS  and her allies will have swept the oceans clean  of the enemy, but the opposing forces will be  irresistible on land.  Then it may follow, and almost surely mtu,t,  that France will be forced into the European military combination. The three allied powers, Britain, United States and Japan will be^jnvincible  on water and the others invincible on land.  r    PW9* 2  . .< ������*���������*-#}>������#������������..

During supper Mrs. Gootsrey wore  her wedding dress and veil just as  they were worn at the original event  Handsome gifts, most in the nicer  forms of woodwork, largely ornamental furnishings, were presented.

Emphasising the importance of education to the public and to the young  citizen as a means of lessening the  social and moral evil, l?r. Coulthard's  paper read at the Progress Club rooms  on Thursday night before the session;  of the civic Improvement committee J  and a number of the public, who were  present was carefully prepared and  contained statistics from the highest  authorities in the medical profession.  It took up the question from the physician's standpoint, the. suppression  of disease. Beside this and the moral \  aspect the paper waa of Interest from  the economic point of view aa it show*  ed tbat the havoc from the present sit  uation waa greater than that of any  other disease wlttf the possible epeeep*  tion ot tuberculosis.  From statistics presented it appears  that if this infection could be removed  but a very small per eeat of some) of  thiB most destructive maladies would  remain as well aa a small proportion  of the diseases which afflict the innocent  That the ignorance which is every*  where prevalent concerning thisf thing,  is responsible for the larger part of  the trouble, waa maintained by the.  speaker, and that the medical profession have not sufficiently grasped the  importance of enlightenment that  some scheme of action might be devised to lessen the evil. As a con*  structlve policy the Doctor suggested  a propaganda of education which  might be carried on through organisations such as the army, fraternal orders, clubs, etc., but the young citisen  should begin a special course In the  public school, where he could moat  Effectually have subjects {presented  through the medium ot biology, which  ahould be placed as a nature study oa  the public school curriculum by the  department of education. Special  teachers, said the speaker, could be  employed for this work, who would  be able to carry on a more advanced  course; in the high schools. These  teachers should he trained in the Normal school.  Regarding the control of prostitution, Dr. Coulthart advised toleration  between the; two parties, who desired  the same end. even though one was  tor segregation and the other for abolition end aald that In the caae of lo-  '9*ap*r**m*&**9*.m\0 . *)w   7" fSw*'SS������������Si'  tfSSJfWt t^SSSV   Tty9^*9^������-  to atop the sale of liquor la these lo*  'wWttft������������������!     ^Pea-v^      w**-iVw     S-rv^WgS*a���������v w      *gsR**P*TT"*"'v>  such a law should he punished by Imprisonment with hard labor. Statistics which were presented at this  point were in favor of abolition and  the speaker aald that personally he  believed ty an active, campaign against  the vice. Beside as area being the  breeding ground tor disease it favored  slavery,, which should not be allowed.  Proceeding the speaker pointed out  that disease could he greatly regulated If the law required medical men to  report this worse form of malady so  tbat the Board of Health could investigate and isolate the case, hut he-  cause it was malodorous the' authorities were apathetic aad the public tn*  active, and said: "Why should society*  which baa done ao much to eliminate  disease, neglect this?"  Concluding, the Doctor made 'a  strong plea to those who stood for  the betterment of public lite to grapple with, and get rid of thia most malignant evil in our midst  A number of those present spoke  along the same line aad made eloquent appeals for a course of action.

No  action along these lines was taken,  however, although the committee-hav*  ing in hand relations with the B. C.  , Telephone Company were instructed to  secure treatment in regard to telephone books similar to that accorded  Vancouver subscribers.  ���������  ���������   ���������  South Vancouver Council has authorized the reeve and municipal  clerk to enter into a contract with  the Dominion Creosoting Company,  Limited, for the paving of Main street  from Sixteenth avenue to River avenue. The material to be used is  creosoted wood blocks, and the cost  is placed at $438,494.93.  This  action was the  outcome  of  .the visit,of a delegation composed of  about twenty property owners along  Main street to the council,"requesting that the proposed contract with  the Dominion  Creosoting Company  be awarded, work to be started as  soon as practicable.   The delegation  -contended this road paving was absolutely essential to the development  of the North Arm of the Fraser river  for industrial sites.    It was pointed  : out by the. Main street property, owners that Main street would require  considerable repairing to make it passable before the winter is over.  They  held    that such expesse would    be  wasted if a permanent pavement were  . - hot put down.  ������������������.���������'���������. <" .  ' The Main Street Improvement Asso-  ,7 elation, which sought some affiliation  with the beard, waa Informed that  membership in the board was restricted to persons either in business  in South Vsncouver or residents of the  ^corporation.  4    A communication waa received from  .the B. C. Electric management stating  that it would be  glad  to have  ita  freight traffic manager discuss freight  rates with the board, and a letter was  received from the B. C. Manufacturers'  Association offering to co-operate with  c the board towards securing a better  '.rate.  The industrial committee waa lh-  structed to take measures to send information to the International Cham*  heir of Commerce at I-ondoo, Eng.,  showing the nature and extent of the  industrial sites available in South  Vancouver, so that merchants and  manufacturers seeking to locate here  and leaving the Old Country for this  coast would be advised of the1 opportunities in South Vancouver before departing. It was stated that _t was  sometimes hard to get in touch with  these men when they arrived in Vancouver, most of them having left before information as to their arrival  had been received by the South Van*  couver board.  ���������  ���������   ���������  ORDER OF SERVICES (Anglican)  S.

It is fairly clear that if this  should be the culruination of the coming tragedy  there can be no very clear way of coming into  any open and definite battle. A water army cannot fight a land army, because they cannot get  into fighting contact.  Then what f   To my mind the- next move is  manifest.    The European forces will decide to  capture Egypt, Palestine, Turkey; if not already^  in the alliance, all the small Balkan States, Palestine, Syria, Persia and India. -  But by the time they have got as far as Palestine on their journey of military conquest* and  while the naval forces are watching from the  sea-coasts, the historic panorama which has been  foretold for about 2500 years will unfold itself  before, the world. The God of Battles will then  act in the presence of an ^officially assembled  fighting world and do some terrible acts, long  since announced. When He is through with the  matter, the military European forces will have  melted into helplessness, and the naval forces assembled will see in the outcome that not they,  but the God of Hosts, did the work, of humbling  and overturning a material, brutal military force,  the mightiest alliance in the history of mankind.  (Read Ezekiel, 38 and 39.)  This wiU prepare the way for the revealing of  some of the other wonderful acts of the Almighty  which He has been so kind as to present prophetically thousands of years ago. These are some of  the great movements "at hand to come,", and  1 which are the precursors of other events of the  most helpful character to mankind. In this series  of tragedies the hand of the.Lord will be upon.  God's Isreal for good, and the whole world will  see that"TheChotea Rwg^wiU stand out on  the high mountains of perpetual success, while'  their enemies go down to final defeat. Then shall  come to pass a strange thing: There will be only  one dominating people on earth, and all others  will acknowledge their inferiority to their masters of the HlLnglo-Saxon Royal Race.  THE NEW LIBERAL JOLICY.  Here is jthe lat-^t-antt ittosV striking bit of plat-  geeia in a long time.   It is up-to-date in its  Let us look at it:  1. "An increase in &$, British Preference to.  fifty per cent." \  2. ^The abolition of all duties oft all food."  3. "The abolition or material reduction of the  duties on all machinery used in the production of  foods/*^���������.-.,;---.-   ������������������' yx.'x:. Ay  i- "The appointment of a permanent tariff  commission for the purpoBe of constantly watch  ing for and advising parliament on the presence  of^jnstices in the customs tariff/^  "Weshall givei ffiese fbur planks a look    ,  "An increase in the British Preference of fifty  per cent." This is good, and shows sound sense.  This plank-should be acceptable to the vast majority of Canadians, and especially to those who  are true Britishers. The Conservatives would do  well to aim at tHfe same end or, better still, at.as  nearly free trade as possible, in relation to the  Old Land.  , Second, "The abolition of all ditties on food."  I would draw the line here to. at least some extent,  as bearing upon sausages made from poodle dogs  and imported from* the continent of Europe.  There are a few other foodstuffs which could well  be excluded. But in the main the Liberal proposition is good, and should meet a general acceptance. -  Third, "The abolition or material reduction of  the duties on all machinery used in the production of food.'' For the most part this is folly,  and out of place. It is another one.of the many  useless ^attempts at winning the farmers on. a  purely selfish basis. And further; it is a fundamental mistake at the present time. As an abstract theory it sounds good. But we are not  living in an abstract world. It is very concrete,  very material, and therefore we do not want to  go the whole dreamland-journey into manufacturing and economic disaster. Somehow there is a  lunatic sentiment that at times creeps into the  skulls of certain nebulous-minded Grits that  when put into language gives one the political  and industrial creeps, This is the result of an  abstraction on the part of the radical wing of the *  political microbes which would bring national !  disaster. The misrobe does its work and the politician plunges ip wildly and "imagines a vain  tiling,'' even worse than jthe psalinist refers to  when he says: "The heathen ^fine ft vain  thing.-";,,:.   <xa.-a^        ��������� '      -   '"''���������'���������'"  Fourth, "The appointment of a permanent  tariff commission to look into and report upon  necessary tariff changes." This is good and wise,  and should be adopted by the Borden administration. It looks in the right direction and seems to  have come from the action of the right kind of  political microbe.   ���������  Prom the above we. :ggg that our good Liberal  friends are making some solicLheadway. If they  keep \m the'pace and "lengthen their cords and  atrengtnen their stakes" ^continually they will  make national headway and, sooner or later, will  come to their own again. But they must put into  their platform a sound British Imperial plank  concerning which there can be no mistake, or 1  down they are and will remain until the crack of  doom. Perhaps this will get into their heads in  due course. If so, then look out for lively times  ahead.  ������.'.:-':s_feS:#^i_  ymym$i0m  Qo Down Towii^  yiSlili^it^  -and Prices iii  Farlb   '  26c  Local Lamb legs, and lotus        ������*ltW Mutton tags 22c, Wns20c  OwieeFotRosst - 42X������-He  Choice Rolled Roasts, 20et62Ee  PTosh> Spare Ribs - - - 16c  Good Laid   -       -  -  2 lbs.

Intermarriage must have been  frequent from this living side by side  in Gallilee, as is exemplified in Holy  Writ  It is well known ShaSmaneser, King  of Assyria, conquered the people of  Israel. 1*������ Israelites were led into  captivity into Assyria, to Halah and  Habor {and Hara) by the River of  Gocan, and in the cities of the Medes  (2 Knags xvfi:6; xviii:12). This dispersion of Israel took place 721 B. C.  Sonte twenty yesr������ prior to this Pul  and TigHth-Fiteser had carried away  the trans-Jwrdariic tribes, Reuben,  Gad, and the ihs.Tf-tr.be of Manasseh,  alio to the Aforenamed cities (1  Chron. v-26').  In the memoirs of Sir John Drum-  ���������mond Hay is to be found very valuable information gleaned from Rabbi  judah Azalia, who had travelled much  ������the East, had spent three years in  the southern districts of Morocco,  and had -visited many of the towns  and Villiges bordering in the Great  Dessert beyond Dra; and his facts  have quite recently been verified by  Dr. Robert Kerr, the well known*  med-csll missionary, in 1912, after living twenty-five years in Morocco, ahd  what follows is from their combined  testimony: "Later, when the oppression of Assyria and Babylon became  unbearable, those captives in the  north cast in their lot with their  maritime neighbors, and through  them resolved to seek a resting place  in one of the Phoenician colonies, so  from Halah and Habor all the Israel-  he tribe of Naphtali, or the greater  portion thereof, sought refuge in  Raden, a town situated on the limits  of Guinea (Ajnaua), that is, the upper  borders of - Sahara, which town of  TBaden, at that time had direct maritime communication with Halah and  IHabor.    From Baden the Israelites  then maritime glory." This has been  confirmed by old Jewish writings,  which istate that many of the Jews  came from the East to Morocco in  sailing ships about 580 R. C." Still  we may imagine many, ye*r after year  finding their way by ancient c*ravan  route to the upper borders of the  Sahara, representatives no doubt of  many other of the Israelite tribes.  However, the tribe of Naphtali is  special named, and Dr. Kerr referring  to their exodus from the East, writes  "Many of the captives could not have  been altogether ignorant of the Phoenician colonies in North Africa from  information brought back by relatives and friends who had sailed in  the Phoenician ships during the  reigns of David and Solomon; so  having struck a bargain, they set sail  in the ships of Tarshish from some of  the seaports in the now Province of  Aleppo for the "Land of the Setting  Sun," though not without fear mingled with hope. Safely landed in  Morocco, and once more free from  the hand of the spoiler, these exiles  named a mountain in the vicinity of  their new home Har Gorizim (the  Mount of Blessing), now Cape Gor-  rizim in Sous, which has retained its  name to this day���������a standing monument of the truth of God's word.  History repeating itself two thousand years later, when, the Pilgrim  Fathers landed in New England in  AD. 1620." These were of the first  captivity; the Israelite population of  the Moorish Empire numbers stome  450,000, but these are not all descendants of the first captives; there  are  he sriiiswrtiinvS jews ir imicgi  These were expelled from Spain  and Portugal in the 15th and 16th  centuries, and are chiefly to be found  in the seaports.   But where did they  set  his heart on the capture of Jerusalem,  he invited the Kings of Lepbaradiro  (Spain and Porfcgal), to assist him'  in the reduction\of the city," which  we have no reason to doubt was both  long and tedious. Now, we have no  other source of information. as to  how this quite different race of Jews  originally settled in Spain. The  spirit of the age is to be critically inclined, and so because a locality  named Sepharvaim was in close proximity to Babylon, and many of the  captives from Judah resided there.  There are not wanting those who assert ,that the two names have been  confounded one with the other. But  the fact remaining that the Jews, evidently of Jerusalem, and not Israelite  descent, were expelled from Spain  and Portugal, and thousands of their  descendants are now in Morocco,' inclines us to attach credence to tradition, until more reliable evidence, if  any, can be produced, to account for  their presence in those countries.  The Bible does not help us, but  many minor transactions in Hebrew  history are purposely omitted from  Holy Writ Just previous to the  Chaldean captivity, we are told,  There were three classes of inhabitants in Jerusalem. The suburban  were the poor working people, who  formed the outer circle; the second  were composed of the better, or  middle class population; while the inner circle was composed of the nobility of the Jews. In gratitude for  the assistance given by the kings of  Sepharadim, Nebuchadnezzar gave  them a gift of 50,000 Jewish captives  from the inner circle as a reward for  their services. These did not return  with the others from the captivity,  although they were invited to do-so  by Ezra." These Peninsular-descended Jews are generally held to be  superior intellectually to their other  brethren in Morocco, though this is  not invariably the case. If the above  theory be correct, it would fix their  arrival in Spain and Portugal about  588 B. C. So numerous did they become, that had it not been for the  advent of the Saracens in A.D. 711,  the Gothic rule would have been  overthrown and a Hebrew Kingdom  established. After the fall of Grenada and the subsequent introduction  of the infamous Inquisition, the  whole race (excepting 83,000, who  found a temporary home in Portugal)  rather than sacrifice their religion to  their worldly interests, left the country and crossed to Morocco, like  Moses of old, "Choosing rather to  suffer affliction with the people of  God, than enjoy the pleasures of sin  for a season." Alas! to have to acknowledge it! but they found the  Moslem a truer brother than the  Christian!"

The}  method to be followed is simijar'to  that in successful operation on the  National Forests in the United Statea  In case of many applications for  grazing rights on any one reserve,  the number of stock which any one  person is entitled to pasture is fixed  by a "grazing unit" based on the  number of stock which can be carried during the winter by a homestead or small ranch, the object being  to give settlers without large grazing  areas of their own, the same facilities |  as those who have such areas. $uU  where there is no danger of o-*er-  grazing, the number of stock grazed  by any,one person on a reserve may  considerably exceed this "grazing  unit." .." ..:���������.������������������ ,l '"y     '   . ���������;'  Application for grazing permits^  must be on special forms, and should  be made to the Director or local forest officer before the first of March.  Small resident farmers who are dependent on the forest reserve for  range for their stock receive'first consideration. The Director of Forestry  Axes the dues for grazing permits  for each forest reserve, but the''min**.  irnum dues ior cattte and horses are;  to be five cents per head per month,  and the maximum dues are to be ten  cents per head per fnonth. The rate  of dues charged for sheep is to be  one-fourth that charged for catle.  .Previous to these regulations only  actual settlers living in the vicinity  were permitted to graze cattle (not  to exceed fifty head), on these reserves, and very little grazing was  done. But these new regulations permit the grazing of a much larger  number of stock by a much greater  number of stock owners, and also  make available to the Dominion Forest Service, a source of revenue second only to that derived from the  management of the timber on these  reserves.  way out"  Tea, yes, I uadcrttaad," I   whit*  [pered, drawing her to am.

Poison, of IBnderby, addressed a  fair aised audience In Annstrong*g HaU  on Friday, Nov. 14, and took et hia,  the themo ot his talk the question of  the present financial stress, its causae  and remedy.  The chief cause for the money shortage he laid at the door of the banking  institutions and the privilege*, given  them by the government He did not  claimto be an authority on banking;  but his curiosity had been aroused In  recent yeara on this question and he  bad recently been making a study of  lt with tha result that he had come  to the conclusion that the banks en-  Joyed unwarranted privileges. ���������  It waa the abeolute opinion of all,  he. stated, that the banks of Canada  were the strongest and beet ln tbe  world���������beet for the people of the  beaks, he said, but worst for the people outside the banks. Money waa the  medium enacted by the government to  make it easier for the.people to deal  with each other. The original Intention of the banking system waa to set  tiie money Into circulation, hut money,  like blood, was in bad condition when  circulation stopped. The government  had practically given control of the  currency to the bants and a rink of  about twenty-seven bankers in Canada  haa assumed control and perverted this  money into wrong channels.  Five or six years ago a financial  stringency had been created ln Canada  tor no good reason. The cause of tbla  had been a call from Wall Street; Now  York, tor money on short loans at high  rates of interest, and banks took advantage of this. 8uch tactics should  not be permitted;; this was drawing  money from legitimate enterprises in  order to relieve someone else tn a foreign country. Similar forces were at  work now, acnoe the present striagan-  cy.  The speaker stated that the banks  peld only 5 per cent to tha government  tor all the money received. This wes  not five per cent per year, bdt only  paid as an Initial deposit without interest on the money received In return*  Aa a remedy he would suggest that  the millions of dollars deposited In  savings banks be transferred to the  poet Oifice department end loaned out  fly the government st a nominal rate  of Interest He advocated, also, government inspection of banks.  The government many years ago had  cot out private mall carrying which  had been costing the people of the  country enormous sums and had taken  over the control of this and brought  tbla cost down to a penny postage and  be saw no reason why the government  should not take over the banking system of the country. The longer the  present system continued the worse it  would be for the country.  Mr. Poison drew many apt similes  and put pointed questions. "Why," he  aald, "should men of privilege get fioo  for f 5, when other people bave to pay  one hundred cents on tbe dollar for  money? The banks also pay no taxes  on the capital they have Invested,  while other people bave to pay heavy  taxes."  Mr. Poison's remarks were listened  to attentively and at the close a vote  of thanks wss tendered him.  es  Mother of Prise-Winning Saay Wrttaa  in Praiee ef Vancouver    -  The mother, of Uttle Herbert Rlcb*  ard Libby, Fraaer atreet South Vancouver, in acknowledging enclosures  from the Vancouver SbtUbltlon Association in connection with the prise  won by her baby son at the Vancouver  Exhibition, says:  -I write to acknowledge the receipt  of the diploma and prise, cheque.

The. government (Liberal) of Central Parliament, on Tuesday eight supported incorporation for all cities having a minimum population ot 10,000,  and favored a salary of 14,000 for  reeve, who would hold office for three  years, while an alderman would be in  office tor two years, which would make  one going out aad one coming in each  Mr. John 8. Harlock of Forty-fifth  avenue wee married to Mlas May O.  Pacey on^Wedneeday tha ltth Inst, at  the Methodist paraoaage by Rev. J.  Pye. The bride was attended by her  Mother, Mrs. Paoey, and the groom  was supported by his brother, Mr. W;  8. Harlock. Only the immediate  frleade were present Mr. aad Mrs.  Harlock will reside at Pacek avenue  on the completion- ot Mr. Hartock's  h<  a large at  tendance of the Main Street Improvement Aaeodatfcm on Monday evening,  and complimented the society on Its  growth since its inauguration four  years ago and referred to the report  brought) In by the committee with regard to the lighting of Main street,  and he said the. best possible attempts  would he made in tbe matter of light  log up. Thia whole Question however,  he regarded as a difficult thing on  Recount of tha retrenchments of the  B. C. Electric Co. Also the company  would not be able to eopplr the KO  lamps planned for the manletpa-tty before spring.  The Reeve said that itt South Vancouver the foundation was being laid  fer a great city. Ther-* waa ao chance  about it ae there had been in Van-  franchises were granted. At present  municipal street trafflccould not be ar*  ranged for aa that could only vbe done  under the joint arrangement o fa unified Vancouver. But electric light,  street paving plant industrial sites,  etc., could all be arranged for. The  electric light plant he continued, was  vary Important. After the company  had cut the fates till they were equal  to those of the city it waa not proven  yet that they were cheap enough. A  company, advised the Reave, Is forced tc consider Its shareholders and  not the ratepayers as long aa they  comply, and lt is up to the latter to  protect themselves.  By controlling the lighting oursej ves  said the speaker, we. would be able  to do away with the wires and poles  on at least the principal streets and  supply the light at one-half thei. present cost He quoted cost flgures obtaining In some of tbe Canadian and  adjacent American cities and aald he  thought Vancouver was paying inoi-e  for Its light than any other city in  Canada. The Reeve painted out tbat  there were 3000 kilowatt* used In the  municipality at present at a total cost  for this year of 128,874.00 and tbe cost  of lighting up the municipality aa it  should be would be f 100,000, while It  would coat 1600,000 for the plant without the building and he gave an itemised estimate and showed how the  cost could be covered.  The Reeve spoke of the gas plant  and -emphasised the > importance of  municipally owned Industrial sites and  said South Vancouver would then be  able to sell to those who were inquiring and to provide work for its dtlsens as well as secure for the municipality the unearned increment. He  strongly criticised those, who bad  through the Press or otherwise minimised tbe Importance of the municipality and spoke ot the great works  contemplated on the North Arm of  the Fraser and the trilliaat proepects  ahead.  As he believed annexation could not  be secured, the Reeve advised incorporation and pointed out things in its  favor. A redistribution bill he said  waa likely to go through both the Dominion house and that at Victoria.  As a city of 40,000 Soutb Vancouver,  the third largest city ln B. C, would  be entitled to two members in the local hbuae. A city would also be ln  better favor at the London market  with the small buyer, who only considered a municipality as a sort of  adjacent village. The Reeve pointed  with civic pride, to what a prominent  man of Vancouver had told htm, vis.  that South Vancouver waa the most  prosperous of any municipality or eity  he had visited for some time.  Councillor Third and several others  spoke briefly.  Mr. Pound, chairman of the Bridge  Committee, said that he had inter  viewed Mr. Carter-Cotton, M. P. P.,  who said he would do everything possible, and that it had also been necessary to interview the B. C. E. R. and  Canadian MalUn Co. and that everything looked favorable. Messrs. Robertson, Hamilton and Hallberg were  appointed a special committee to interview the Richmond council re a  right of way from the northern to the  southern boundaries of Lalu Island,  for Main street.  "Owning as much property as they  stated it is not businesslike on their  part to decry the municipality in the  way they did and to allow their state;  ments to be published broadcast to  the detriment not only of South Vancouver, but of their own property,  Especially waa lt unbusinesslike and  foolish when lt may be stated without  fear of contradiction that South Van  couver stands today in as good if not  indeed a better financial position than  neighboring municipalities. Moreover  the council has done nothing to lower  the* credit of South Vancouver either  on the London money market or elsewhere.  "It is true South Vancouver sold no  bonds this year or last; but we are  not alone in that respect. The failure  of the Dominion Government issue in  London showed conclusively the attitude of British investors. When one  thinks the Dominion Oovernment 4  percent, stock at 99 going begging/it  shows how scarce and particular investor are. As a matter of fact not  only has South Vancouver had to be  temporarily financed until the, market  permits of the bonds being put on for  public issue, but many Canadian financial enterprises are being temporarily financed in the same way. Almost  ruinous prices have recently been paid  by certain municipalities for temporary finance, aa compared with the  price paid by. South Vancouver. These  prices have created an unfavorable  impression among financiers, particularly among th������* directors of life insurance companies and other corporations which buy largely in the municipal bond market *  "The London newspapers have also  been devoting considerable attention  to Canadian securities lately and have  hot only been giving more space to  Canadian failures in their financial  columns but on their placards also.  Tbe effect on investors of placarding  London with announcementa auch as  these���������Canadian Government Loan  Failure,' and 'Another Canadian Loan  Fiasco,' can readily be imagined.  Hence our financial agents have not  thought it advisable to atten.pt to  float South Vancouver bonds. We are1  convinced, however, that South Vancouver will be able to haeet the  financial situation and our obligations  at tbe proper time.  "With reference to the statements  made by the delegation to the Provincial Government tbat South Vancouver la practically in the hands of tbe  receivers and that we owe the Bank  of Montreal $1,125,000 at 7 per cent,  interest at the present time and will  owe the bank in February next  91,575,000 the statements are simply  not true. All we owe the Bank of  Montreal at present Is 160,000 pounds  sterling, or roughly $800,000.  The B, C. Telephone Company declines    to,   alter    the    Shaughnessy  Heights   telephone   connection   from  but in the meantime the council has Eburne to the Bayview exchange. This  full power to "dispose of the bonds if  the price is favorable; but the* present  council will certainly-not sell their  bonds at a sacrifice, priee.  "On September 30 last 140,000  pounds, or 1700,000 treasury bills  came due, and these were rape wed In  small blocks. On Sept. 25 thei Lon-  ddn office of our fiscal agents Sold  50,000 pounds worth ot treasury bills  on a 6 per cent, basis less charges, or  about 51*2 per cent The following  day they sold 10,000 pounds worth at  the same price and later two blocks  of 10,000 and 20,000 pounds worth  were sold at 61*2 and 7 per cent. lesB  charges. It was practically impossible to sell treasury bills tb meet  the balance and we were obliged to  make temporary arrangements with  the bank to cover the loan till sufficient treasury bills were sold..  "To give the ratepayers an idea of  the rate of interest at which our  treasury bills have been issued I will  quote the prices at whicb they have  been sold. Commencing In June,  1012, South Vancouver treasury bills  were sold at par value at the following rates of interest: June 17, 4.15;  June 20, 4.24; Aug. 14, 4.85; Aug. 30,  5.19; Sept 26. 5.36 and 5.57; Oct 21,  6.35 and 5.64; Dec. 24, 6.50; May 27.  1913, \6.26; M^y 30, y06; Sept^ 10,  6.40 less charges ln each caae. Later  prices I have already mentioned.  "Compare those prices with the re*  ������opt offers made, to Burnaby Council  for 6 per cent treasury bills, the  latest of which was, according to the  press reports, $1,100,000 for $1,260,-  000 worth, and I think the ratepayers  will acknowledge that South Vancouver has not fared worse than other  municipalities.  "In regard to Income and expenditure I may say that this year the expenditure .will come well within our  estimate even allowing for a shrinkage in the estimated amount from  taxes. It. Is not true aa stated by Mr.  Gold that South Vancouver has $175,-  000 in pressing claims unpaid.  "The tax levy this year was $624,000  to meet estimates amounting to that  figure- This amount was made up as  follows: Administrative expenses,  $190,703, lees $50,000 estimated revenue, or $139,803 aet; Interest en  sinking fund and loan into $214,406;  Point Grey^  information was conveyed in a letter  from the comjpany dated _*Tov. 22 and  read at Tuesday night's meeting of  the Point Grey council.  In the letter it was stated that there  appeared to be a slight misunderstanding, as the company had gathered from  the letter of the council that the council were of Opinion that the company  had-promised to consent to the change.  This was not correct Tbe company  had found that to make such a change  would be absolutely impossible, aa all  construction Boutb of Bodwell road  had been carried out on the basis of  the understanding with the council.  Therefore, no change could be considered at the present time.  The council also received copies of  the two resolutions recently passed by  tbe Kerrisdale. Ratepayers Association  in connection with the alleged discrimination of the company against the  district and the association's endorse*  met of a public utilities commission,  which should have jurisdiction over  telephone and other companies. The  council last night took no7 action in the  matter, as they were not requested to  express an opinion. The letter from  the B. C. Telephone Company waa ordered to be filed.  In accordance with the recommendation of the heat, light, fire and police  committee it was arranged that an  adequate addition to the night police  force should be placed at Shaughnessy Heights, by organising the force  so that the main body of men should  be on duty at night, and to have a  substation established for special attention to West district, and additional  lights are also to be installed.  A largely-attended deputation from  West Vuncmveft"  -��������� v,     I  . West Vancouver municipality at tie  Tuesday's council meeting agreed n>  purchase four acres of land in the  Capilano Indian reserve at the price  of $1,000.00 per acre, to accommodate  the Marine Drive at the point where  it is linked up with the Municipality  of North Vancouver. ���������  As a result of the action, recently  taken by the West Vancouver council,  the P. O. E. R. Co. have agreed to  replace the 3x3 culvert, which they  had put in on Twenty-fifth avenue,  with a 4x5 culvert as required by tttb  district engineer. It ls elpected that  various other matters, which hav*  been under discussion with the RaUway Co., will be adjusted ln a manner  agreeable to the municipality.  A sub-committee was formed at  Tuesday's meeting, to report upon the  appointment of a police magistrate by  the district and also on the providing  of call accommodation ln connection  with the police department. x  Ward One waited on the sewerage  committee with regard to the sewerage disposal at the Shaughnessy  School.. Mr. A. J. Blackball, who acted  as spokesman, advocated doing away  with the septic;tank, and connecting  the school with the sewer. They felt,  he said, that tbla Should be done aa  soon as possible for the protection of  the children; and be blamed the prei-  ent arrangementa for. the sicknees  among the children. They had '*%'  ctose the school last year on account  of sickness, he declared, and this was  a detriment not only to the health of  the children, but also to the advancement of their studies.  On the suggestion of the reeve* it ws>  resolved- that a special committee of  the whole council should enquire into  the matter in conjunction with the  deputation and see what could be dons.

Moreover, at the end of  this year we shall have roughly $340,-  000 arrears of taxes on which no expenditure has been authorised, and as  no money has been borrowed on the  streength ot these arrears the amount  of $340,000 arrears of taxes will be a  straight asset to the municipality.  "A good deal baa been said and  written commending the action ot  Mayor Baxter and the City Council in  deciding not to put any more money  bylaws before the ratepayers. next  year. I would like to point out that  thia policy was adopted by the South  Vancouver Council, as far aa possible,  twelve months ago. So far#e the  delegation to Victoria was concerned  1 am inclined to thldk that they went  for the purpose of airing their person-  "As I have already stated no South  Vancouver bonds were sold last year,  so to finance the municipality temporarily tbe council authorised by bylaw  and with the consent of the lieutenant-  governor the issue ot 300,000 pounds  treasury bills, roughly $1,500,000. On  December 31, 1912, we had issued  against that amount $1,250,750, and  this year we issued the balance. On  July 31 there came due $800,000 and  as there was no market for municipal  bonds generally we found it necessary  to. enter-into an agreement with tho  Bank of Montreal whereby they loaned us 1800,000 at 7 par cent per annum  interest till  February  1, next,  The bank took our unsold bonds aslal grievances rather than in the Inter-  security wltb aa option to purchase; jests of the municipality at large.'
