cavers' Brilliant Combination Work
Succeeds   in   Stopping  Maple
Leafs���Score 8-3.
Enthusing their supporters by
llllant combination play and outclassing the speedy Westham Island
aggregation in every department, the
I,ilner Beavers displayed their true
f.irm in the league fixture on the
home grounds, Friday evening, doubl-
Ing the score on their doughty opponents. The reversal of form has had
the effect of reviving interest in local
la :rosse circles as the Beavers are
now conceded a possible chance of
annexing the coveted MacKenzie silverware. T0 accomplish this end It
will be necessray for the Beavers to
win the two remaining league fixtures as well as the resulting playoff, A record-smashing attendance
is anticipated , when the two team3

Score in Eburne's Favor Close
Contest Throughout.
Fighting hard every moment of the
time, Ladner played the best game of
- the season In the Coronation Day
match against the Eburne intermediates. The score was dengerously
close throughout, Eburne leading by
a scant goal, and in the fourth period
when Ladner outplayed the visitors
from start to finish, the indication-
looked good for a Beaver victory.
The game endued with Eburne on the
long end of a 4-3 score.
Eburne is now leading in the Intermediate division of the Vancouver
Amateur Lacrosse League, and the
team arriving on the New Delta last
Thursday morning was strengthened
by the addition of Capt. E. London,
of the Richmond team, who had recently been signed up.

Eburne and Ladner in the morning,
won by Eburne, 4-3, racing events
in the afternoon at the driving park,
and a dance In the evening at Mc-
Neely's Hall, the annual Coronation
Day celebration in Ladner passed off
on Thursday acclaimed by everyone
as a huge success. Rainy weather
in the early morning did not augur
well for the events, but Jupiter Plu-
vlus became good-natured as the day
wore on, and the sun shone in all
its glory upon the large crowd which
assembled from Delta, Point Roberts,
Surrey, Richmond, Vancouver, New
Westminster and other points to
watch the racing meet held in the
The horse-racing was some of the
best which has ever been seen in the
Delta. Good purses were hung up
by the local racing association, and
in all the events, except the third,
which was declared off, the entrants
being sent to the stable, there were
close finishes.      Probably the event
In the 2:14 event, the first of the
afternoon, close finishes between
Yedna and Olga S., kept the crowd
on edge, though Olga S. managed to
get past the wire first in all three
heats. The results were Olga S.
(Marshall) first, 2:21 Vi, 2:25,
2:23%; Yedna (McPhail) second;
Bluebell (Jordan) ^4, 3, 3); B. C.
King (Holllngshead), 3, 4, 4.
The only unpleasant feature of the
afternoon occurred when, after two
heats had been run in the 2.35 class,
the three horses, Lady Patrick (Mc-
Cullogh), Sweethe-yt (Hodgins), and
Delinda (Morris), were sent to the
stable, the race and all bets being
declared off. The decision waB popular. The first heat was run In 3.50,
and the second, while faster, was unsatisfactory. "It is not horse-racing," announced Starter George Anderson, "and the association will not
stand for it."
T. G. Hodgins, owner of Sweetheart, declared that, as a result of
the judge's decision, he would never
race again in Ladner.
The results in the 2.40 class were:
Great Northern King (Hollinghead)

proved satisfactory, and real work
would be begun on the following day,
when probably 20,000 feet of lumber
would be sawn.
The belts in the shipment, of which
there was a delay, thus holding back
the work for about a week, were received and placed In posttion the
first  of  this  week.
Twenty-two men are now at work :
at the mill, and the number will soon
be increased to forty. Local white
labor was employed so far as possible,
as it is the intention of the owners
to make the mill a distinctly Ladner
sanitary can system in three local
canneries. Brodie's cannery will
have lines of machines for tall, flat
and half-flat cans. The Anglo-
American will have one line, as will
also the Wardham, both of which
will  put up only tall cans.
By the new swstem, which is also
being adopted this year by canneries
at Steveston, the tops and bottoms
of the cans are crimped on, and aro
made more sanitary through the absence of solder. They pass through
the crimper at the rate of seventy-

The entrants were seven in number,

anything but auspicious, the annual

SATURDAY, JUNE 28, lo***--
Indian Woman Emulates    Evidence
of Hindus���Billy ve Dam Land-
In Gaol.
(irom the Briush ColumDlan.*
The morning session of the Spintlum murder trial at the Assizes was
replete with interest and resulted in
one witness, Billy ve Dam (who His
Lordship suggested should spell his
name with a "b" instead of a "v"),
being taken in custody and removed
below pending the court's decision.
The session opened quietly with
the evidence of Billy Decker, who
described the finding of a buckskin
horse within half a mile of Decker
lake. He gave the horse to Mr.
Fernip, chief of police of Kamloops
The next witness called gave the
most extraordinary exhibition of
mixed cunning and stupidity, stoicism and defiance. She had been referred to thronghout the preceding
evidence as Nancy Emma, but on
being sworn gave her Christian name
as Mary Jane. Jn her examination
in chief she testified posTTively that
she knew Paul Spintlum, the accuse,
and had known him from childhood.
She last saw him at the trial at Vernon and before that at Decker lake.
She met him riding there along with
another man whom she did not
know. She described the marks of
the two horses they were riding���
a buckskin and a bay. She was
about fifteen yards away.
!** Afraid to Speak.
She was afraid to speak to tho
men. She saw the buckskin tht- next
day at Canoe lake. They were going fast when she saw the men th**
first time and they started to run a
minute after she saw them. Chief
of Police Fernie and Constable For-
sythe were at her camp the night
before the Vernon trial. The first
time she had said she recognized the
men was at the courthouse at Vernon.
In cross examination witness contradicted everything she had said in
the examination in chief. "She did
not recognize the men," "she didn't
remember giving evidence at Vernon."
All in Vain.
In vain judge and jury tried to
elicit the truth from her; it was
quite impossible. Throughout her
examination ehe kept her eye on the
prisoner who seemed to be very
much amused and laughed as much
Is an Indian ever allows himself to
be tempted into tha white man's
method of expressing amusement.
His Lordship In commenting on the
evidence said that if a white witness
acted as she did it would not be per-,
' The next witness was an Indian
called Billy ve Dam. He said he was
raised in the same reserve as Spintlum. Cultus Jack had made up the
story that he told at Vernon. He
had forgotten all ho said at Vernon.
In spite of Mr. MacNeill's efforts
to get him to remember he persisted
in his obstinacy, drawing from His
Lordship the comment that he ought
to spell his name with a "b" instead
of a 'v."
Away to Cells.
The patience of the court was
however exhausted and on His Lordship's direction the sheriff gave his
instructions and officers surrounded
Mr. Billy ve Dam and he disappeared
to the cells below.
John McMillan, provincial constable for eleven years at Clinton,
testified that he arrested an Indian
named Charlie Ilaller for the murder
of a man named White on the Cariboo road on July 8 or 9, 1911. He
arrested Hallor tho night the body
was found.    Haller was released af-

growth of the Civil Service in recent
years can be found than ny a reference to the Forest Branch of the
Lands Department. Tt is only about
eighteen months since the first steps
were taken by the Minister of Lands
to outline the organization of this
important branch of the service, yet
so vigorously has the matter been
pushed forward that today the forest
service may be said to be completely
equipped to deal both with the current work and with probable increases that may be expected in the
near future.
For some months the principal
duty before the minister and his officials has been to co-ordinate the
work Of th. large staff so as to
handle the public business with the
maximum of business efficiency and
dispatch, and this work of perfecting the departmental machine will
continue to demand much attention
for some time to come. The many
new lines of work that have been
put in hand must be perfected before
the field of effort is further enlarged.  -.'���-���
During the period of organization,
while the staff was being recruited,
a very large number of applications
for positions were naturally received,
and although no vacancies now remain to be filled, the number of applications continues to increase. At
the present date there are some hundreds of applications on file for positions either on the inside staff or for
the field service. Now that the
Forest Protective section of the Forest Branch has taken field for the
fire season, the personnel is at its
maximum. Apart from the office
staff, the field force alone for the
summer of this year is the eleven
forest districts will total 360 men.
In casual conversation with the
Minister of Lands it was ascertained
by the press that application for
positions in the Forest Branch, as
well as in the Water and Inspection
Branches of the Lands Department,
still contiue to be received, not only
from residents of the province and
other parts of Canada, but also from
England, India, United States and
many other countries, the forest
policy of British Columbia having
aroused considerable attention in all
parts of the world. In order that
there should be no misapprehension
in the matter it should he thoroughly understood by the public that the
above mentioned branches of the
service are at present fully staffed.
Although there are many desirable applicants still unsatisfied, yet
It Is not the Intention to undertake
for a year or two a least any additional new work which will necessitate any further additions to the
present staff, ln any of its branches.

Advertising News
Many of tbe household articles in daily use
in our homes, many of the perfected ideas in
wearing apparel, and much of the advanced
thought in living today would not now be
benefiting humanity were it not for.ihe advertising in newspapers like THE DELTA
As a concrete example much to the point, a
ptominent manufacturer and distributor of a
footforra shoe for children���a shoe of special
construction and down-to-the-date features ���
recently advertised in twenty of the principal
oities east of the Mississippi River for a period
of four weeks.
At the end of that time he experienced such a
demand for this shoe that he has been unable to
fill bis orders on time for many weeks.
The public who read his advertissments in
an incredibly short lime learned, to its profit,
about something that benefited it, something
that filled a great need, and responded by
practically doubling the manufacturer's business.
By this systematic series of advertisements
the producer, the retailer, and the consumer
were helped. This is just one case. There
are hundreds like it. SATURDAY. -TONE 28, 1013.

Mr. A. J. Fisher, a lawyer of Fernie spent Saturday here with his
brother, S. W. Fisher, and Mrs.
Fisher, making the side trip after
the Masonic convention in New Westminster, at which he was a delegate
from Fernie.
(From The British Columbian.;
The tale told by Chief Fernie in
the   assize   court   yesterday   of   the
i tracking of the Indian outlaws Paul
;and Spintlum over hundreds of miles
(of wild and uninhabited country, in
|the  hinterland  of  the  Cariboo  district, was one of the most fascinating that has been heard for a long
time.      The   untiring   pursuit,   the
clues picked up her*, ana there, the
ingenuity and energy of the pursued
all formed a story of adventure that
fiction   could  not  equal.
Win. R. Fernie, chief of the Kamloops division of Provincial Police,
described the various articles found
at the scene of the killing. He identified two shells as those picked i.p
on the spot; oue was a .32 special
and the other a 30.30. He had
tried to fit the cartridges into a .32
special and found they both fitted
but the .32 special cartridge would
not fit a 30.30 rifle. He had made
enquiry as to .32 special rifles and
had found only three located within
a radius of 100 miles north of Clinton in the Cariboo district. He narrated the following of the tracks and
produced a blue print showing the
route taken. They followed the
tracks to James' stable. That was
where Neas lost his saddle. They
followed the tracks for two miles
from there when they lost them
owing to the nature of the ground.
They then visited the Indian reserve
at Canoe Creek, where they put the
relatives 0f Spintlum and Paul under
surveillance. In consequence of
what Frank Johnny, an Indian on
the reserve, told them, they accompanied him to where there were
tracks two miles from the spot where
they interviewed him. This was on
May 9th, 1912. They followed these
tracks across country. There was
no road. He related bow the tracks
at times led them through wild horse
country and also through a flock of
2,000 sheep, which were being herded in this country. Among the incidents he described in the wonderful chase were the finding of the
black stallion which had been seen
at the shooting and the utilizing of
him as a pack horse, and the efforts
apparently made by the pursued to
elude pursuit leading their pursuers
backwards and forwards through
swamps. All the chase was being
made through a wild and uninhabited country. In one camp they found
caUlks for a "never-slip" shoe. Two
miles further on they found two deer
had been killed and skinned and the
skins thrown over a trunk. Two
cartridges were found, one a .32
special, the other a .44 He put
them in his saddle bag. On the
17th day they came upon a camp
fire still warm, but were thrown off
their search by wild horse tracks.
They next day struck another camp
which had the appearance of being
hastily abandoned. They found a
large cache of provisions, coffee,
bacon, etc., and also a complete horse
shoeing outfit, including monkey
wrench and other articles. Witness
described the continuance of the
search down to the Cariboo Road
at the 100-Mile house. A day or
so later still on the trail they picked
up an Indian saddle and later they
caught a buckskin horse and later
still they surrounded a bay horse
shod with never-slip shoes. They
also got a saddle. They travelled
436 miles between May 4 and May
24. There were ten Kamloops Indians and tw0 Clinton Indians with
them. They were out 4S days altogether.
Joe Moses knew Paul and Spintlum. He saw them in December
last. He was with Major Churchill.
He saw the glasses produced. He
took Paul and Spintlum in to surrender themselves. They were quite
willing to come.
Frank Johnny said he knew Pau!
Spintlum. They were both born a'.
Canoe Creek. He was a distant relative. He knew Moses Paul. He had
known him a short time. He saw them
in May, a year ago, near a dam at
May, a year ago, near a dam at
Canoe.Creek. They were on horseback, both on the same horse. He
asked them where they weie going.
The7 said they were travelling
through the country. They didn't
know where they were going. They
had rifles on their back. They were
riding a bay horse. He saw it at
Kamloops and Vernon. He saw Mr.
Fernie next day and took him to
where   he   saw   Spintlum   and   Paul.
Philip Thomas, one of the trackers,   corroborated   Chief   of   Police
Fernie as to picking up and following
I tracks.      The shoes  produced  were
the shoes that made the tracks behind the logs.    He corroborated  as
to  the finding of  the  saddle  and  a
little later as to Billy Decker bringing in the buckskin horse.    He aUo
testified   to   finding  the   "*>ay   horre

A rancher at Bonners Ferry is
the originator of a new scheme for
clearing logged-off lands, whieh he
claims enables one man to get rid
of from fifteen to twenty stumps a
day, says the Creston Review. Mr.
Kindschub, the inventor, has tried
nearly all methods advanced for the
pulling of stumps, and claims tbat
be has now found tbe most practical
j thing known to the owner of logged-
off lands.
Mr.  Kindschuh burns his stumps
; with the aid of a draft flue four feet
: to six feet long���the longer the bet-
; ter, on account of the increased
draft. The flue is attached to a
-/.���o-inch auger hole, which is bored
on a slant of about 45 degrees
through the highest roots of the
i If possible the auger hole m bored
so as to come out at the lower end
between two parting roots. A fire
is built of the auger shavings about
four inches below the opening of the
auger hole, and the flames are drawn
thj-ough  the  heart, of the stump  by
.the flue. Mr. Kindchuh claims that
ordinary sized stumps will burn of"
clean through by this method in
thirty-six hours, without any attention,  while it sometimes requires u
i week to burn a stump by the char-
pit method. It is also claimed that
this method will burn off the roots
deep enough to allow a plow to go
over them.

Premier Looks to Certain Future of
Tower and Greatness���Town
Planning Aid.
VANCOUVER, June 26���Promises
of early legislation looking to the improvement ot the present system of
municipal government, and also in
the direction of assisting the cause
cf town planning tlirou.h.'Jt '.he province were features of the address
delivered by Sir Richard McBride at
the Progress Club luncheon yesterday.
Other important points in the address were a declaration of unbelief
tbat Mr. llorne-Payne of London had
cast the reflections on Canadian
municipal securities credited to him
ami the statement tbat the credit
of the province was still of the best
and need cause no misgivings. Apart
from these four points, the Premier's
speech was mainly confined to a
resume of thc progress made by the
province anil an enumeration of the
government's plans to prepare for
the expected record influx into the
province after the opening of the
Panama canal.
The announcement that, the Premier was to be the guest of honor attracted a record attendance of members, and although exceptional facilities had been prepared for seating
a much larger crowd than usual the
accommodation was exhausted early
and many were turned away. Mr.
.lames Findlay, the president^ of the
Progress  Club,  occupied  the  chair.
At the outset of his address Sir
Richard paid a tribute to the work
being done by the Progress Club, of
which h? was proud to be a member.
The organization was being watched
from abroad and it was recognized
as a forceful entity, doing a large
part in tho work of nation-building.
It was cultivating a friendlier spirit
and a feeling of co-operation between Vancouver and its neighbors
in the lower Fraser Valley.
If the province was to attain to the
measure of growth and development
it would only be by engendering a
desire for co-operation. The people
of Vancouver had no need to be told
of the endless possibilities of the
province. They were alive to their
- pportunities and all their local undertakings were marked with a hfgh
conception of the potentialities not
only of the city but of the province.
Financial Stringency.
The Premier then referred to the
financial stringency and lassitude nf
trade. The dispatches in the daily
press seemed to indicate a wave of
general depression. He would not
subscribe to any statement of the
kind as far as British Columbia was
concerned (cheeTs). It was true
that the real estate business was
quiet and the erection of public
works in many municipalities was
being held back, but as far as this
province was concerned there was no
nerd to become impatient or lose
"Even in Vancouver," he continued, "there may bo a small element who have 'cold feet' and who
spread rumors of trade depression.
As a rule tbat element bave their
carpet bags bandy. They ' move
easiiv, and 1 do not think the city
will be the loser if they sbould go
nnd not come back. I say to you, do
not lose courage. Tbe future of Vancouver cannot be questioned. This
Is bound to become a great national
centre, with a huge population and
a kirtre aggregation of profitable and
bupv Industries (cheers).

good stories to give of themselves
and their development. At present
money is scarce. I am quite satis-
fled that he did not make any state-
men* that would impair the financial
standing of the province or the Dominion.
"The municipal securities of British Columbia are of high standing.
In the past 25 years there has only
been one instance where those
responsible for municipal indebtedness defaulted either in good times
or in bad times. They are always
equal to the emergency. It may be
that the banking interests cannot
handle our securities now as quickly
as they did a few months ago, but
this Is a world-wide condition for
which there is no need for discouragement   (cheers)."
The Premier then referred to the
town-planning movement, which was
making progress in the province. The
government was in  sympathy    with
from the timber industry last year.
Soon the timber industry would have
to come here for the best timber.
The fisheries produced last year
$15,000,000, as against $5,000,000
ten years ago.
The agricultural production last
year amounted to $22,000,000 as
compared with $7,000,000 ten years
ago. He declared that the agricultural policy was not detrimental to
settlement. The population was increasing at the rate of 75,000 per
annum. The land policy could not
be the came as in Alberta because
the configuration of the land was
different. The situation must be
worked out on different lines.
Public Works.
The Dominion government would
spend $6,000,000 in the province this
year and the provincial government
would spend $8,250,000 for public
works of which $5,000,000 are for
roads and bridges.
He advocated the extension of the
the movement. There was a pretty | P G E through tbe Peace River
fair assortment of towns and cities yalley t0 the Alaskan boundary as
in BrUsh Columbia but we should th bMt meailB of opening up the tar
I!   by legislation , no_th Qf ���._ provlnce ln whose fu_

take action. He also promised amend
take    action.      He    also  promised
amendments to the present municipal legislation after the findings and
recommendations   of   the   Municipal
commission had been received.
Railway Development.
He spoke at some length on the
government's railway policy. At the
present time ;!000 miles of standard-
Range track were being built which
involved a cost of $100,000,000. All
of the lines now in cource of construction would materially assist in
the expansion of the province.
Every one of these roads with the
exception of the Grand Trunk Pacific would run into Vancouver. When
completed the railway service to the
city would be immensely improved.
The newcomers included the Kettle
Valley, tbe V. C. & E., the Pacific
Great Eastern and the Canadian-,
Northern. The Northern Pacific
would come here soon. Its officials
had been negotiating with the government for the use of the Fraser
river bridge.
Then the Chicjgo.Milwaukee &
St. Paul was bound to come here
too. These American roads were
compelled to come to this great commercial centre (cheers). He knew
personally of their desire to enter
Vancouver. The electric railways
had expended $40,000,000 In this
province and was still expanding.
He had been informed by Mr. William McNeill that the Western Canada Power Co. would soo-ar-enter the
field as a competitor.
Big Influx Predicted.
He predicted that British Columbia would soon be the mecca of
a big trek from all parts of the continent. Alberta and Saskatchewan
bad been boasting of their increase
in population. Hedid not wish to
detract from the achievements of
these two beautiful sister provinces

The Dominion.
President R. C. Hodgson of the
South Vancouver Board of Trade In
eloquent terms proposed the toast of
the evening: "Our Dominion and
Our Guests," which was responded to
by Mr. .1. D. Taylor, If,  P.  for New
Westminster and Mr. H. H. Stevens,
M. P. for Vancouver.
Extolling the Dominion as a land
rich ln natural resources, among the
leading nations in commerce, the
brightest gem in the Empire's
crown, Mr. Hodgson spoke of the
proud privilege it was to be a Canadian, since Canada was part and
parcel of that greatest of empires,
Great Britain, whofee flag ls the
symbol of peace and liberty, and he
expressed the hope that Canadians
one and all would soon forget their
party quarrels and unite to do their
full duty to the empire.
Then he turned to an appreciation
of the work of the two federal members at Ottawa. But the work was
Just beginning for North Arm mu-
rlcIpaPties. Mow it devo-ved upon
them to impress upon government
justness of their claims .or assistance, to demand of the government
to pay up the back dues. Their
work would be not finished until
they had made the North Arm one
of the grandest harbors of the Dominion, the newly appointed commissioner declared amid applause.
Eburne's Destiny.
Mr. Taylor was first to respond to
a toast that was drunk with enthusiasm. After expressing his appreciation of the splendid banquet
tendered them, he happily expressed
the hope that what had been accomplished in the splendid little town
of Eburne since the early days when
he knew it. what progress had been
made fully justified them In looking forward to the movement now
inaugurated as one to result In still
greater  achievements.
He paid tribute to the good work
done by the pioneers of tnat section.
The mainspring of the movement
for this project came, he acknowledged, from Eburne which was
destined to become an Important
port. It was also a source of pleasure to him, he said, that Mr. Stevens was as much interested as he
was in the bill.
But it had been easy to pass the
bill through parliament; they were
just now at the beginning of their
labors. It was necessary now to set
to work to show the government
that here was bound to be one of
the greatest manufacturing communities on the continent, and that
here on the North Arm of the Fraser should be established the real
port of Greater Vancouver.
The Commissioners.
Leading up to the announcement
of Mr. Hodgson's nomination on the
Harbor Commission, Mr. Taylor remarked on how it was one of the
first essentials that the harbor commissioners should have confidence
of the people and should command
the respect of the government. The
joint councils had taken the first
step last night, he said, in nominating one of the pioneers of enterprise
in the community, a self-made man.
One who has done well for himself
and has earned the respect and confidence of all who know him. He
was glad to hear that they had named his old friend Frank Trites. As
first choice for his associate, he had
to announce Mr. R. C. Hodgson, a
name received with applause. In
choosing these two gentlemen they
had, he thought, made a good start,
and with a third they should have a
board of commissioners not to be
outshown in point of ability by any
commission board for Canada's harbors.
It was now for them to arm themselves with a talent to lay out a harbor plan that would command the
attention and support of the government, something clear and definite,
and then demand of their government that what they hau done for
Montreal, Quebec, etc., they should
do for the North Arm harbor. In
the ministers, and especially the
finance minister, Hon. T. W. White,
they could look for sympathy, especially in the latter, who* had stated
that the government wisned to be
ahead of times on the Pacific Coast,
not lagging behind as successive government, had done on the Atlantic.
"Put it up to your commissioners
in such a manner that tne government will not be behind, but will be
justified in making this tne harbor
of the Pacific," Mr. Taylor concluded amid applause.
People Make Places.
Paying a personal tribute to his
colleague, Mr. H. H. Stevens commended to the North Arm communities his advice, as pointing out
the only course that would be successful. He fully appreciated, he
said, the value of the Fraser river
and its sea ports. He was convinced that the great industrial development of the Lower Mainland
would be ln the lower Fraser Valley. It had all the natural advantages.
There was no reason In the people
of tho Pacific Coast being afraid to
launch out on manufacturing, There
was here 200,000 people to form a
homo market. Toronto and Hamilton had become great manufactur
Ing cities because they had a homo
market. Manufacturers have here
a similar market and besides a
growing interior. Mr. Stevens concluded by an appeal for laying well
and truly the foundations of life on
the coast, in this connection urging
consideration of what he felt was
the greatest problem facing Canada
today���the Introducing of people of
a proper type. He declared against
admitting those who would fail to
respond to the high ideals of the
race to which Englishmen belong.
The employment of 900 men on the
construction of the Coquitlam dam,
white men and no foreigners, proved the fallacy of the contention that
we muse Introduce bond slave labor
to help build railways or public-
He could say that the British Columbia members of the Commons
stood uncompromisingly against assisting the Hindus into this country.
It. was not up to Canada to throw
down the bars to those who were not
citizens in their own country.
Our  llni-ltor.
Councillor C. S. Campbell, acting
reeve, of South Vancouver, proposed
the toast of "Our Harbor," in a
capable speech. Picturing the future with the developments ln transportation consequent upon the opening ef the Panama Canal, he assert-
that opportunity knocks loudly at
the door of the North Arm Harbor.
! Acknowledgement was made of the
great services rendered by Mr. Geo.
H. Cowan, their solicitor, and his
practical experience which was such
that the bill had framed went
through without any considerable
Cowan's Tribute.
Mr. Geo. H. Cowan and Mr. W. H
Higglns, of Eburne, replied. The
former said he was pleased to have
met men with a vision, during his
work in conectlon with the harbor
bill, and if there was one man in
the Fraser Valley with a vision it
was Frank Trltes. He, too, could
see, looking into the future, a part
of Greater Vancouver, the centre not
in Burrard Inlet, but In the North
Arm of the Fraser.
Pioneer  and  Visionary.
With the enthusiasm and the
force of a man with a vision, Mr.
W. H. Higglns, a pioneer of Eburne,
told of what he had dreamed of the
North Arm, a lifetime ago, and how
now it was coming true. The development had come quicker than he
had estimated.
The near approach of the opening
of the Panama Canal had sharpened the commerce of the world. He,
too, thanked most heartily the federal members for their work. He
hoped to see the river with wharves,
storehouses, docks, as he had dreamed lt.
Greater Vancouver.
Who better fitted with his optimism, his breadth of outlook to propose the toast of "Greater Vancouver," than Dr. Elliott S. Rowe, and
he did it in a speech pungent with
thought, and with a plea for cooperation. FlrBt a tribute to Mr.
Higglns. If a man of over 80 had
such a vision, has lived to see it
realized, then they need not be concerned about the future of this land.
Touching upon the industrial feature, Dr. Rowe emphasized the need
for cheup sites for manufacturers.
And along with manufacturing, agriculture must be cared for. The
significant fact about the North Arm
Commission is that It was accomplished by four municipalities acting
voluntary. Thus the results from
co-operation and union.
Mayor Baxter, of Vancouver, Acting Reeve Campbell, of South Vancouver; Reeve Churchill, of Point
Grey; Reeve Bridge, of Richmond,
and Acting Reeve Fau Vel, of Burnaby responded with capital speeches
dwelling upon the value of co-operation, of the spirit of unity and of
how important would be the place
filled In the commercial world of the
North Arm of the Fraser.
Reeve Bridge In a particularly
able speech had much to say about
Richmond, and Us place In the sun;
all were trying to flirt with her.
Thanks also to Mr. Taylor, on the
South Arm of the Fraser, there was
being Improved a ship channel to the
sea by the building of jetties. New
Westminster, he thought, had lost
nothing by granting water rights to
