Horse   Lovers���Opening
April  22nd.
The Vancouver Horse Show, to be
held In Vancouver April 22-27 Inclusive, will ecliipse every previous exhibition of the kind on the Pacific
Coast. The opening will be a very
brilliant affair. The chief officiating
figure will be the Lieutenant-Governor, Hon. T. W. Paterson, and there
will be present also Premier Mc-
BrMe, Hon. W. J, Bowser, Attorney-
Genral; Hon. Price Ellison, Minister
of Finance and Agriculture, and most
of the other ministers. The wives
of these honorable gentlemen will be
the guests of the association alsc during the show.
This year's exhibition, the fifth to
be given by the Vancouver Horse
Show Association, Is attracting a great
deal of attention, not only because of
past excellence and aecamipllehments,
but also because of the handsome trophies which will b- hung uip for competition this year. There will he

In addition to the usual prizes, but
the great feature for exhibitors will
be the cup offered by the Duke of
Conn&ught, Governor-General of Canada. This 's the first time that a
Governor-CV-neral has donated a cup
to a horse show in Canada, and British Col'vubla's big event should flatter itse.l: that It has attained such
fame ln the east that such an offer
should have been made unsolicited.
A cup will be pfferetj by the Duke
of Connaught to the Vancouver Horse
Show Association each year he ls in
office. This trophy has aroused
much enthusiasm, and as It will be
coveted by horsemen there will be
keen competition for It.

will be Dr. Webster, Ottawa; Dr.

Advanced���Seeding  Will  Be
[Prom The British Columbian.
. Ploughing throughout the Fraser
Valley is now well advanced, and in
m..si of the districts will be finished
within a couple ot weeks. Due chiefly to the exceptionally One weather
experienced towards the end of Feb-
1 ruary  and   the   beginning   of   March,
��� ploughing  is  at  least  a   week,  If  not
uio weeks in advance of last year.
i Everywhere, therefore, advantage
! has    been    taken   of   the   propituuus
��� weather to expedite ploughing operations. In some parts, especially east-
[ wards towards Chilliwack, the soil has
been still more or less frost bound,
; but not to the serious extent of pre-
1 vious years.
At  Fort  Langley,   Langley   Prairie,
. Milner and  district,  the  ploughing  is
'practically   over,   and  sowing   will  be
started   within   the   next   two   weefcs.
Mr. John Brow'n, of Cloverdale,
states that in his district ploughing
is further advanced than during the
past two or three years.
Mi S. Stevenson, of Elgin, Mud
Bay, ..-ports that ploughing hns bi en
done in ideal conditions for the past
three ->r four weeks, and that given
fair weather, the ground will be ready
for sowing In about a week. The
grass in this district is coming up
well and farming prospects generally
are very promising, ln this district
it may be mentioned that dams are
to be erected to prevent the overflow
from the Gulf of Georgia. Potato
planting has been started in this district.
Mr. Henry Hornby, of Cloverdale.
states that ploughing in his immediate
neighborhood will be finished In about
a week, and sowing commenced soon
therea*****-. The grass has begun to
grow and W. Hornby expects a big
and quick growth If the fine weather
continues. In this district teams generally  swing  a   16-inc'h   plough.
Further east, at Chilliwack and district, while there still remains evidences of frost In the ground, the
ploughing is also more advanced than
in years. Here as in other districts
the dry and mild weather has greatly
facilitated ploughing which is expected to be generally mrough ln the
course of the next two o��* three weeks,
and sowing commenced at least a
week earlier than last year.

In accordance with the instructions
given by the Joint waterways committee at the meeting held here recently, Mr. J. C. Gibson, the chairman, forwarded today the resolution
passed at that conference to the
minister of public works at Ottawa,
and also to Mr. H H. Stevens, M.P.,
and Mr. J. D. Taylor, M.P., concerning the dredging of the North Arm
of the Fraser  River.
This resolution urges on the Dominion Government the immediate
dredging of a channel fro mthe mouth
of the stream to New /Westminster
fifteen feet in depth as a tangible installment of a great national harbor
scheme; also that a new suction
drredge be provided for exclusive use
of the North Arm. '
In a communication the need for
this work Is urgently pointed out,
as under present conditions, 1t is
stated, Industries on the bank of the
stream are severely handicapped
owing to the Inability to bring vessels In at any tide.
-Mr. Gibson states that the committee is very active and is leaving
no stone unturned In obtaining an
appropriation for the development of
the North Arm. He says the committee has good reason to believe that
the Dominion Government will look
favorably upon the scheme as outlined by the committee.

(Proverbs x, ���"���.'.i   He suiil:���
The thing which strikes me specially
ns I visit your great city for Hie first
lime Is the marked contrast between
(lie palaces of your superior ijuiu-tei'
mid the hovels of Blacktown���the contrast between great riches and great
poverty. But think not that I have
come to speak words which would engender strife or even discontent. Bather tny message is one of peace.
The Inequalities, mental and physical, which prevail amongst us ns members of a fallen race, produce naturally our inequalities as respects wealth
nnd social conditions; it is well, therefore, that we should not accept tbe
rabid views entertained by many, but
we should think soberly, dispassionately, We should rememlior that God
Himself is very rich. All the gold and
silver nre His, nud the cattle upon
a thousand hills, with Infinite power.
beyond human comprehension.
We should remember that it Is writ-
len Hint "Abraham was ver? rich." nnd
Unit his riches did not interfere with
the fact that he "was the friend of
God," and thnt to him God gave that
grent promise secured by ths Divine oath,
which is the basis of all hope for the
blessing of the world: "In thee nnd in
thy Seed shnll all the families of the
enrth be blessed." Other noble char*
nctors on the pages of history are noted ns having possessed grent wealth.
We should therefore view the matter of poverty and riches philosophically. Both poor and rich should be
encouraged to use faithfully the opportunities which they possess and to
wait patiently for the Lord's time and
way for the Introduction of the new
order of things which He has promised, assured that lt is not in our power
to hasten or delay the Divine program.
Bible Counsel For the Rich.
The Aiiostle says, "Charge those
amongst you who are rich that they
trust not In uncertain riches." Tbe
history of centuries corroborates the
Apostle's words. The rich und prominent of one dny become the poor nnd
forgotten of nnother. "IUches take
wings" in a manner that poverty rarely imitates. The tnlents and opportunities which h.ve brought great wealth
to some of our prominent Americans
hnve brought wealth nnd prosperity lu
smaller measure to those associated
with them in their enterprises. Indeed, In some respects the entire wor'd.
and particularly America, owes ibem a
debt of gratitude for their energy ind
perseverance In Hie exercise of their
tnlents along such broad lines.
My mind tool* this course of reasoning ns I looked nt the handsome edifice
occupied by the Y. M. ('. A. of this
city, nnd I was informed Hint it was
Hie gift of one of our American mer-
eliaiil princes, Mr. John Wanamaker,
of New York and Philadelphia, I said
lo myself. Behold un instance ln which
riches have been generously expended,
even In a far-off land, for the benefit
of Hie masses mui with n desire |o
promote clean and noble niniihooil
along Christian lines.
