THE GAZETTE, MONTREAL. MONDAY, .JANUARY 10, 1927. VOL. CLVI. No. S MAYOR'S FAREWELL TO MONTREAL WEST Citizens at Public Meeting Express Appreciation of Jas. Ballantyne's Work NE-W SLATE DRAWN UP 3oxne Citizens Must Take ' Lead, Says Mayor ,in Admitting Election "Machine" Exists Xn taking leave of his people of Montreal West, Mayor Jas. Ballan-tyne at the City Hall Saturday night was able to unroll the picture of the growth of a splendid little residential municipality in which . harmony and goodwill have played a part. , The Mayor la dropping out of municipal life after such a long period as head of the municipality that his name and that of the municipality have become synonymous. Such at least appeared to be the Impression t)f the good-sized audience which gathered to greet him, and to welcome (the slate to whom His Worship has handed on the succession, subject to confirmation by the people on .February 1 next. It was made clear by the mayor that there is an official slate, even a machine, and that he has had much to do with it; Heading the slate is -Harry Aird, who .has served In the Council for six years, and is the slate candidate as mayor. Aldermen E. B. Luke and George Templeman are renominated. Two new men are brought forward, Jas. H. Webb, and R. Gom-ry. This slate leaves out Aid. H. H. Black. "I have nothing against Aid. Black personally, but he and I do not agree us to how Montreal West should be run," explained , Mayor Ballantyne, 'He Is a respectable citizen, but our municipal views are absolutely different. I did not want him when ho came Into the Council, and would not like to have him if I were going back. "There is talk that there is a machine. It is true, and it is mighty well oiled, find it runs fine. Did you "ever hear of a provincial or federal government which did not have a machine? Why should not a group of men get together and select a slate, and present 5t to you to vote on for the first of February? Somebody must get things started. There is some talk that candidates should be chosen from a public meeting, but that would not work out well. You would . have bedlam. .This slate is prepared. There is no iiuestion about it. There was a meeting called at which some 90 to 100 citizens were present, and it was then that I had to say that I would not be tL candidate, since there was question of me again. I am told I should have said at a public meeting that I would not run again, but I had to make the 'statement then, and I repeat it now at this public meeting" ' The mayor turned to the chairman, Andrew Fyfe, and said: "There is the man who generally selects the slate. He has been doing it for years. He and his friends get the best men possible, and he should be congratulated and not censured; That is the machine we have arid are working with and which we hope will win February 1." Mayor Ballantyne pleaded for support for the incoming council. , "It is a slate that will continue the progressive policies which have been inaugurated," he said. "Give them a pat on the back now and then. They don't get paid, so cheer them on occasionally." GROWTH REVIEWED. ' Mayor Ballantyne told of the growth of Montreal West from the time it was a hayfield. He was elected an bidet-man in 1909, and mayor two yeurs later, the election of mayor then being by the Council, and was the first and, up to the present, only mayor to be elected by the general vv,.o wry cicivioi iiicie were k then 700 people in the place, now he figured there were about 8,000, and here are now permanent roads and lidewalks. At that time the valuation ,as $554,000 and the debt $100,000, wriicn meant tne limit or Dorrowmg. The revenue wag $2,770 a year, and the municipality also collected $5,487 lor interest and sinking fund on the Iebt Today the revenue is $112,773, tised for maintenance and interest itnd sinking fund. Since the creation of the Montreal Metropolitan Commission the town was the only one jvhich had not borrowed a cent. The fliayor suggested that the time had come for a money by-law to care for expenditures which should be undertaken and for those cared for out of revenue, such as building a cottage for R. Miller, the town superintendent, and to care for the cost charged against the town for the River St Pierre sewer improvements. The mayor, talking of other matters generally, referred to the reduction in valuation given to the Canada Car Company, and to the Jas. Robinson estate, and pointed out that this had meant a loss per year to the municipality of $210. ',, His Worship thanked the people for the support they had given him, pointing out that if he had served ;them well it was also true that never ihad they rejected a proposal which he bad laid before them. The public utility companies had treated the town well, he said. The Canadian Pacific Railway Company maintained beautiful grounds, and had always French Writing Papers Our Stationery Department offers the very latest in French Writing Papers, with lined envelopes, in a variety of delicate shades. An opportune time to fulfil your requirements for the coming social season, j I MAPPIN&WEBBi CANADA m0 4, 353 St. Catherine St. West 1 been ready to do anything for the town. Many times had Vice-President A. D. MacTier, accompanied - by C. P. R. engineers, come to the town and given advice, and all without cost. "The C.P.R. is always approachable to us, from President Bcatty down," said His Worship. "I also wish to thank the Montreal Tramwavs Company. They may not have given us the service to which we think we are entitled, but they have always met us. and Col. Hutcheson has been most obliging. Thye have paid their full! snare of paving of streets, and never questioned accounts, and it is the same for tho Montreal Light, Hiat and Power Consolidated. I can say the same thing for the Bell Telephone Company." The mayor spoke - highly of the town's officers and employees. At the conclusion of the address, J. W. Percival, one of the oldest residents, moved a vote of thanks to Mayor Ballantyne, in which appreciation of his long service to the municipality was put and coupled with it Was regret at his leaving municipal affairs. John Doughty seconded the motion. The members of the slate made short speeches, which were well received. MISSIONS OUTSIDE ZONE OF DANGER Dr. J. 0. Thomson, Returned Missionary, Reviews Present Upheaval in China With the. general interest in the Chinese situation increasing, there are In this city relatives and intimate friends of missionaries directly affected by the rapid change in political affairs in southern China, resulting from the movement begun in Canton several years ago. "Following the developments with special Interest in the city are Dr. Percy Leslie, a graduate of McGlll University, who was in charge of a hospital in Honan before, he left a few months ago for Montreal after twenty-nine years In China. Also in the city for a few days and patching closely the movement, which in 1925 closed- the hospital in which he was working, is Dr. J. O. Thomson. He is on furlough at the present time, but is keeping In touch with the situation in the Far East through communications from his brother and sister, both living in Canton. Miss Margaret King, who is also on furlough at the present time in Montreal, has been stationed as a missionary on the. Yangtse River, which is figuring so largely in recent reports. Others well known in the city working in affected districts are Dr. Macdonald, who came originally from Valley-fleld; the Rev. Mr. Broadfoot and the Rev. W. R. Mackay, and the Rev. Mr. McRae. Dr. Lindsay, who is stationed in a hospital at Changte, is a brother of R. B. Lindsay, of thi city. Friends of Fred. Auld, Dr. Murdoch Mackenzie and Dr. William McLure, former -Montrealers and graduates of McGill University, are also watching the events in China closely. Speaking yesterday in reference to the various missions and tho present nationalistic movement, whose influence is felt throughout China, Dr. Thomson, who is in the city for a few days, said that, as the missions are not in the foreign concessions, the trouble which centres in the latter places docs not affect them directly. There is a repercussion from the general disturbance however. Also, as the missionaries speak Chinese usually, there is more opportunity of counteracting the propaganda against foreigners which is being waged under Soviet direction. The students trained in the mission schools are the hope of China, thought Dr. Thomson, for the education given in the Government schools is not so good owing to, the fact that there is not enough money left for educational purposes, when the leaders of agitation and disaffection, and corrupt Government officials have had their share. While heartily in sympathy with anything that seemed like a.real nationalist movement, Dr. Thomson said that Chinose hatred of the foreign influence was not consistent with the best interests of China. The Soviet representatives, with Borodin at their head, had carried on successfully the agitation agalnr; the foreigners, but many of the more astute Chinese political leaders realized that If the destruction of the commercial enterprises . depending upon the foreign occupation took place, it would cut off a large supply of money upon which depended the Government of the part of the country affected. JUDGMENT RESERVED W. F. O'Connor, K.C., Asked to Sue Outside Ontario Ottawa, January 8.

O'Connor, K.C., for permission to tesue a writ out-Fide the province of Ontario against Sir Francois Lemieux, Chief Justice of Quebec. The action arises out of the recent federal Customs Investigation in the Maritime provinces, when Sir Francois Lemieux acted as commissioner and Mr. O'Connor as Government counsel. LIMITED i r sir i ' I HI IE. - n BORDEAUX HOSPITAL FOR INSANE READY Transfer of 300 Patients From St. Jean de Dieu, Verdun and Beauport Near ORGANIZE PERSONNEL Dr. A. H. Desloges Stresses Fact New Asylum Not Refuge for "Criminal Insane" Within the next two weeks the Bordeaux Hospital, created by the provincial Government primarily for patients declared insane and confined, following criminal court proceedings, will be ready for operation. Dr. A. II. Desloges, director of hospitals for the Insane, declared Saturday that the building and equipment are virtually ready, adaptation of one of the wings of the Bordeaux Jail building having been satisfactorily undertaken. Dr. Daniel Plouffe has been named director of the hospital; new medical assistants and trained employees are to be engaged so that all may be in readiness when the patients are transferred from asylums in the province which are to be relieved of their most embarrassing element. The new hospital, as It stands, has a capacity of around 400 patients. From St. Jean de Dieu, it is expected that almost 200 will be transferred; from Verdun Protestant Hospital, about forty are due to make the trip; and from the Asylum of St. Michael the Archangel, Beauport, near Quebec, about 60 will be moved. Thus the new institution will start off with a population of about 75 per cent, of capacity. But, Dr. Desloges says, he does not think it will be long before capacity will be attained. Although patients who go to the asylum on an order from the court, which places tho individual in confinement under the guardianship of the . Lieutenant-Governor-in-CouncH, will be in the majority at the Bordeaux Hospital, there will be facilities for the occasional admission of people never before tho courts, who are shown by examination to be afflicted with insanity of the type making it more prudent for them to be in an institution from which escape is difficult, if not impossible. That is one of the reasons why Dr. Desloges Is anxious that the term "criminal Insane" should be divorced completely from the Bordeaux Hospital. "It is incorrect, and unjust," he said, "to talk of criminal insane. An insane person, w ithout 'capacity for reasoning, premeditation, intention, or the proper balance between right and wrong, cannot be a criminal. He may commit a criminal act, but he is not a criminal. He is insane, and nothing more. NOT A PRISON. "I am very insistent upon the public getting the proper idea of this new hospital. It is not a prison. It is a hospital, equipped for the proper treatment of insane people, placed in surroundings where safety for the patient himself and safety for society generally become assured. The people who are taken to that hospital will receive treatment just as humane and medically correct as they have been receiving in the asylums where they have hitherto been confined. The only difference will be that, whereas they can now escape with a fair amount of ease, they will not be able to do that in the Bordeaux Hospital. They will be subjected to treatment,' just as they are now, with just as much liability to cure, for the facilities which the Government has placed at our disposal at Bordeaux make it one of the most modern' and best equipped institutions of its kind." Besides the wing of the jail, two large open spaces have been made available to the patients of the new hospital, so that they have adequate recreation. APPRENTICE WINNERS C.P.E. Ogden Shop Boys in Best Workers' Test (Special to The Gazette.) Calgary, January 7. D. Porta, Ji, S. Coleshill and H. E. Gregory, apprentices of the Canadian Paciflo Ogden Shops in Calgary, have been adjudged the winners in the apprenticeship competition held throughout the past year, and they will now meet the three topnotchers in the Winnipeg shops In a competitive test for the proud tilte of being the best apprentices on the whole of the company's western lines. It is interesting to note that ninety apprentices are employed at the Ogden Shops learning the various metal and woodworking trades, and a very successful year has just been brought to a conclusion. During the course of apprenticeship not only are the boys given individual instruction in the practical work, but the company also provides for their technical education. Each apprentice attends class a fewhours each week, under a first-class, 'competent Instructor, for which time he is paid at the same rate as while working. He is also provided with comfortable classroom quarters and the neoessary drawing and classroom equipment at the company's expense, the aim of the Canadian Pacific being to give boys a thorough practical and technical education with a view to turning out nothing but skilled mechanics. During the past year twenty-five new apprentices were engaged anjl nineteen apprentices completed their apprenticeship, the latter receiving a certificate showing that complete time had been served and that they were fully qualified to work aa mechanics. . .

Given Travellers . by La-porte, Martin, Limited SETBACK BEING OVERCOME Wholesale Firm Reports Business Volume Lost When Gov-eminent Took Over Liquor Control Being-Kegained When the Provincial Government took over the sale of liquor in 1921, the wholesale grocery firms of tho province lost business that approximated nearly fifty per cent, of their volume, but the setback is gradually being overcome. This was revealed on Saturday evening at the annual banquet tendered by Laporte, Martin, Limited, wholesale grocers, to members of the staff, bringing to an end the annual sales convention of the firm. The banquet, which took place in the ballroom of tho Queen's Hotel, was attended by 125 members of the sales and other departments. Flags decorated the banquet hail, and tha family spirit, which is one of the boasts of this company, was evident in emphatic manner. Jos. Laporte, vice-president and managing director of the company, presided, and announced that, owing to sickness, the president. Sir Hor misdas Laporte, could not attend. An oil painting of the president was hung behind the head table. Mr. Laporte also stated that the firm had Just experienced the most successful year in Its history. This he ascribed to the co-operation of the staff, to tha hard work of the salesmen cn the road, and of course to the merit of :he goods handled. When the Governmtnt, in 1921, took over the sale of liquor, proceeded Mr. Laporte, the wholesale grocery business lost almost 60 per cent, of its volume. Prior to that, Laporte, Martin, Limited, handled in a wholesale , way an . exceedingly large amount of liquors and wines. The loss of this business occasioned considerable apprehension to the company's directors, and ways and means of meeting the situation had to be discovered. Laporte, Martin, Limited, said Mr. Laporte, undertook to replace this lost volume by adding other departments, such as provisions, butcher supplies, and had equipped a large manufacturing plant, which today was a beehive of employees, busy turning out the Victoria family, which included- tea, coffee, extracts, spices, condiments and sundry products, which today had become a byword with the consumer. With one more year like the last, concluded Mr. Laporte, the directorate, particularly Sir Hormlsdas, felt that the loss of this important volume in 1921 would be completely made up for by other lines, showing creditable enterprise and ability in successful business operation. Other speakers on the programme were, P. Journet, H. Cantlon, C. H. Catelli, a director; H. Delorme, secretary of the firm; Edgar Genest, sales manager; M. A. David, M. Sullivan, J. Lesperance, D. Laviolette, L. Baribeau and Warren Brown. $250 CHEQUE FOR TRAVELLER. One of the features of the evening programme was the presentation of prizes and cups. D.' Laviolette, who was given the name of "King of the North," said to be the best travelling salesman from Montreal to Mont Laurier, received the cheque for $250 given by the company to the salesman attaining the highest increase over his quota, E. Rousseau rp-ceived a chequo for $100 for coming second in this respect. A. Boies, for the second year in succession, won the cup for the largest increase in sales over the previous year J. F. Dugas won the cup for the Ottawa branch. S. Chabot obtained the cup for the butcher's department. Special prizes of a gold watch, given to all those who obtained their quota during the year, were awarded to A Boies, L. Baribeau, M. Goldberg, B St MIeux, T. C. Savage, C. J. Mitchell, J. F. Dugas and E. Dus-sault . , , . Orchestral music was provided throughout the banquet, while entertainers included Hercule Lavoie, Emlle Gour. Victor Desautels, Ar-mand Gauthier, Conrad St. Amand and Messrs. Thorpe and LeBrun. j O Petitclerc, assistant to the president, was the organizer of the banquet arrangements, which included novel stunts. One minute of silence was observed as betokening the sense of loss felt at the death, since the last banquet, of T Passingham, of The Gazette, a friend of Sir Hormlsdas.

WOMAN EVANGELIST OPENED CAMPAIGN Victoria Booth Demarest and - Husband Jointly Conducted Service Mrs. Victoria Bobth Demarest, granddaughter of the late General William Booth opened an evangelical campaign yesterday afternoon In Fairmount Avenue United Church. Holding in her hand a hymnal entitled "Victory Songs," by Booth-Clibborn, this member of a family which for three generations has been prominent in evangelical efforts, led a capacity congregation in spirited singing, and afterwards introduced It to the first of the series of gospel messages which she will give during her stay in Montreal. . Wearing a, dark blue bonnet, from which . fell two long streamers, and a simple dress of similar hue alleviated with touches of white, Mrs. Demarest, with her pleasing, far-carrying voice, made a favorable impression. Beside this British-born though native resident of Paris, there stood her husband, Agnew Demarest, who had charge of the musical portion of the programme. The Rev. James P. MacFarlane, pastor of the Fairmount Avenue United Church, and the Rev. -Dr. John R. Dobson, minister of St. Giles United Church, were the others on' the platform. "The campaign," declared Mrs. Demarest, at the opening of the service, "Is for us alone, for you and me to conduct as best we can. Tho evangelization rests with God. "Wo have with us, J believe," she continued, looking towards the younger element in the assemblage, "the senior classes from St. Giles Church. Will they please stand up, and come forward and find places at the front. And will any of the boys and girls from Temple Baptist Church, who are here, too, get as close to me as they can." The young people stepped forward and Joined in singing "Rejoice In the Lord," by Evelyn Booth-Clibborn. "Help Thou My Unbelief," by Victoria Booth-Clibborn Demarest, was th name of a solo number that Mr. Demarest interpreted in his pleasing tenor voice. "What you sow, that shall you also reap," was the message of Mrs. Demarest to the boys and girls. "The great truth, is," she declared, "you are not your own; you nre God's, as creatures of His creation, and His sons and daughters. If you want to know the value of your soul In the sight of God, look at Calvary. 'Men may come and men may go," but truth abides forever. Every great truth has its application to us, and we cannot escape. It si better to be enlightened now than when it is too late." The Rev. Mr. MacFarlane and the Rev. Dr. J. R. Dobson held devotional exercises, the campaign being instituted jointly by Fair-mount Avenue and St. Giles United and Temple Baptist churches.

SAFETY LESSONS FOR JUVENILES Precautions Against Accidents Driven Home by Films and Talks POPULAR INSTRUCTION Educative Entertainment Palace Theatre Held ( Interest of Child Audience . at Seldom has a theatre had a more appreciative audience than on Saturday morning, when hundreds of children assembled at the Palace Theatre to witness an entertainment organized under the joint auspices of the Child Welfare Association and the Province of Quebec Safety League. The young people, who by ten o'clock had virtually filled the main floor of the theatre, came thoroughly determined to enjoy themselves and they were not disappointed. Anticipatory shouts of delight rose from the audience before the opening of the programme. As a prelude to the proceedings, a film showing the visit of Queen Marie of Rumania to Montreal, contributed by Mayor Martin, caused considerable interest, and was cheered enthusiastically by the boys and girls. Opening the entertainment, Aid. Watson, a member of the Protestant Board of School Commissioners, who represented Mayor Martin, spoke to the children. Basing his remarks on the proverb, "Look before you leap," Aid. Watson referred to the fact that the present gathering had been made possible by the energetic work of a group of ladles and gentlemen of the city who have taken an active Interest in the children since its inception. "They have carried on the Province of Quebec Safety League," he explained. "There i no use whatever in this wonderful work done for you if you do not do your part," he continued. "Always look before you cross the street to see whether automobiles are coming. Chauffeurs are not out to kill you. Before going into a dangerous path of any nature, stop, look and listen." Following the address by Aid. Watson, a film portraying safety control in th school, under the direction of city policemen, further impressed upon the children the importance of continually taking the proper precautions against accidents. Clarence P. McCaffrey, in a short talk, gained the Interest of his audience at the start by declaring that he was asked to speak because he looked more like Harold Lloyd than anybody else In Montreal. Taking up the Importance of safety both in thn home and on tho street, Mr. McCaffrey offered some sound advice to his listeners. IN LIGHTER VEIN. Striking a lighter! note a specially arranged programme wa3 presented through the courtesy of the Palace Theatre, under the management ef Mr. Rotsky. A short film dealing with the antics of the famous Felix caused much merriment, while the house became boisterous over a Hal Roach comedy Introducing "Our Gang," entitled "Shivering Spooks." Baby Esther,- the Juvenile dancer, performed in her usual winning manner, and Roland Duquette, the boy violinist, also a favorite in the city, gave two charming numbers. The remainder of the entertainment, included a film concerning crippled children, showing how one boy was permanently injured through carelessness In the driving of an automobile.- A health talk by Dr. Roddick Byers followed.

Illustrating his remarks with drawings, much to the delight of the audience, the speaker took up the various functions of the body in relation to the head office. In commenting on the meeting, Mr. Gaboury, the general manager of the League, stated that Saturday's performance was the beginning of sixteen entertainments to be held in all the theatres in Montreal. "We have made up our minds that accidents will be reduced this year," he said. "If people do not know what we will do when we are determined, they will find out." Others instrumental in bringing about the meeting were J. M. Mc-Bride, convener of the safety committee of the Child Welfare Association, and Miss Esther Beith, director of the Child Welfare Association. Boy Scouts, under the command of E. W. Francis, and a troupe of Girl Guides acted as assistants. As the children were leaving the theatre boxes of chocolates were distributed to each child by the Palace Theatre management.
