Royal weather attended the anniversary day of the consummation
of Confederation Wednesday. The
entire programme of the diy constituted a numerous and varied
leries of events which altogether
made up a lilt ol unusual merit.
The effectiveness of the effort was
admittedly somewhat impaired for
the reason that the arrangements
were in the hands of three distinct
parties, hence the unity was lack
ing which wis essentiil to the best
euccess. The ittendance was not
so large at had been anticipated,
owing doubtless to the fact that
there were many strong counter
attractions elsewhere, nevertheless
the entire proceedings were marked by enthusiasm and were much
enjoyed by the thousands who
celebrated in the city.
One feature of the habits of the
visiting throng was the manner in
which they scattered throughout
the diitrict—Lynn Creek, Capilano, Lonsdale Gardens, etc.,each
receiving I Urge quota from the
crowd. The bulk of the people
however, preferred to linger about
the waterfront ind the grounds of
the Hotel North Vancouver were
thronged throughout the diy, presenting a gay holiday appearance.
The local camp ol Ihe Sons cl
Scotland, together with a large attendance of guests from the coast
campi, held a most successful picnic. The programme included
Caledonian sports.dancing, piping,
a grand concert in the afternoon
and a ball in the evening. The
several eventi were well contested
ind the interest was splendidly
•ustiincd throughout the day.
The civic celebration was formally opened by Mayor Kelly it the
city hall (the hetdquarters of the
general committer) it 10.30. In
the ibience ol G. J. Phillippo,
chairman ol the committee, Geo.
II Morden mide the introductory
remirks, briefly outlining the programme for the day. He then introduced His Worship Mayor
Kealy, who wn received with applause. He extended a hearty
welcome to all participants in the
celebration and expressed the hope
that Ihey would find the day, in
the highest sense, a success. He
relerred to the inaiiguulion of this
annual celebration one year ago,
in conjunction with the celebration
of the incorporation of the city ind
commended the idviiability ol
perpetuating Hi obiervance Irom
year to year. He relerred to the
lact that visitors would find a
large variety ol attractions, chiel
among which wu the city itself.
The celebrition wn then declared
officially opened ind the proceeding! wera termimted by "The
Maple Leaf Forever" and "God
Save the King," by the band.

Thii wu considered 1 very crcdi

finally won by hill number one in
Iwo straight pulls.
The aquatic sports were let in

itituted the centre ol attraction for

The events at the Athletic Park
were pulled off on schedule time
and with little delay between-fea-
tures. Chairman Matt Martinson
and his committee deserve credit
for thc smoothness bv which the
occasion was characterized. The
attendance at these events was
small but the performers had an
interested and appreciative audi
ence. Mayor Kealy and A. R.
Steacey acted as judges and Mr
Brewett as starter.
The outstanding events wer<
the baseball match between Van
couver A. C. team and New West
minster, and the wrestling match
(or the championship ol the Pacific Coast, between Venaliles, ol
Seattle, and Renshaw, of -North
Vincouver. The baseball match
wis very evenly contested up to
the seventh innings and developed
considerable enthusiasm upon the
part ol the fins. The Westminster team lost their grip in the last
Iwo innings ind the V. A. C. ig-
gregation took them into camp to
the tune of ia_to 5.
The wrestling match proved one
of the best features ot the celebration in point of genuine merit and
sustained interest. His most san
guine Iriends scarce dired to hope
thit Ihe local boy could win, His
opponent was a man of experience
and victor in hird won contests,
thc possessor ol a conspicuous
championship and the crowd evidently judged that he would not
have very great difficulty in retaining his standing. The two bouts
were marked by action from start
to finish, Renshaw being the aggressor practically all the time and
receiving every encouragement
from the audience. Venables
worked hard and tried ill the tricks
of the gime ind while he secured
a dangerous hold occasionally
Kenshaw invariably succeeded in
extracting himself from the predicament. Venables likewise found
himself in imminent danger more
than once but managed to avert
being thrown. When the call came
for a third bout Venable failed to
respond and Kenshaw was declared light weight champion of the
Pacific coast amid the cheers of
the crowd. Billy Thompson, of
Vancouver, referred, giving every

The Ferry Company succeeded

The formal opening of the new
horticultural building Wednesday
evening, called together an appre
ciative audience. The pavilion required for this purpose. He
was occupied during the day by was sure the audience would join
the Ladies'committee, who, under heartily with him and the directors
the auspices of the Directors, pur-1 in acknowledging   the  great  in
veyed refreshments to the public
The attendance during the day
was disappointing,but the situation
was somewhat redeemed by the
evening gathering.
The program of instrumental and
vocal music proved very enjoyable
and was interspersed with short
interesting speeches. The assembly which followed was thoroughly
enjoyed by those who participated. The programme in full was
as follows:
Piano solo, Miss Thibert; chairman's address; address, president
of the association; song, Aid.
Crickmay; address, A. H. B. Mac-
Gowan, Esq., M.P.P.; recitation,
"Little Bit of Bunting," Miss
Anders; duet, Mr. and Mrs. Colin

address, Reeve May; song, H. C.
Wright; song, Wm. Philip; song,
W. J. Butler; address, Alex.
Philip; music by the orchestra;
accompanist, Mrs. Crickmey; God
Save the King.
Mayor Kealy occupied the chair
and in well chosen opening remarks noted the fact that the completion of the building marked the
culmination of a purpose formed
three years ago and now the society needs only the hearty co-operation ol the citizens to ensure its
future success and usefulness.
President Alexander Smith submitted a financial report showing
the total cost of the building to
have been $4103 and disbursements $3140, leaving a deficit of
•Jy65, which the society was desir
ous of raising as soon as possible.
A. H. B. Macgowan, M. L. A.,
of Vancouver, was the speaker ol
the evening and fully sustained his
reputation as an interesting and
effecting public speaker. In opening, he referred to the close identification of interests is between
the two cities on Burrard Inlet.
He expressed his appreciation ol
the honor conferred upon him in
in the position which he occupied
upon this occasion and compli
merged the society on the excel
lent home which they had secured,
Proceeding he traced the history
of horticulture, beginning with the
Garden of Eden and following it
down through the kingdoms ol antiquity, the Roman and Greek periods and to the present time.
Horticultural societies conferred
great benefit upon the community,
uniting lhe best elements for the
furtherance of its laudable purposes. The ipeiker became reminiscent and recalled experiences
of twenty years ago, when he was
elected secretary of the Dominion
Day celebration committee of Vancouver. The population of the
city was then 8000 and now it is
twelve times that number. The
revenue that year was $'47,000 and
now it is one and one-quarter millions. The schools at that time
held 350 pupils with four teachers
and now thete are 8000 pupils with
159 teachers. Such progress is
highly gratifying and analagous
possibilities lie before North Vancouver. Thc west is proud of its
resources and British Columbia
cin claim to be the greatest province in the greatest section ol the
greatest empire in the world. All
eyes throughout thc countries of
the world are upon the west and
the future is big with incalculable
possibilities, lie closed by formally declaring the horticultural
building open (or public purposes.
Reeve May o( the District of
North Vancouver deemed it a
pleasure to be identified with the
horticultural society. Great credit
was due the promoters of the project who had carried the erection
ol the building to completion. He
spoke of the delights of close contact with nature, to which horti
cultural gives access. He gave
tome ol his personal experiences in
fruit raising and declared that the
district affords ample opportunity
(or horticultural pursuits, with assured results.
Alexander Philip gave the history
of the horticultural movement in
this district Irom its inception,
tracing its progress to the present
occasion. He referred to the value
ot the building to the public as affording an excellent place for
meetings, entertainments, etc. He
outlined the work which the direc-
tors wished to do in order to complete thc building and grounds,
stating thit in all  faooo would be
debtedness of the society to the
ladies' committee and their friends
throughout the city, to Mr. Mac
gowan and to the respective persons who had participated in the
programme of the evening.
The National Anthem concluded
the proceedings.
L. 0. L. Social
The strain! of God Save the
King, issuing (rom many lusty
throats, floated down Lonsdale
avenue on Tuesday evening, the
source being the Orange hall,where
numbers of North Vancouver's
best citizens were gathered for a
social entertainment, under the
auspices of the Loyal Orange
lodge. Mayor Kealy presided and
the evening proved enjoyable
throughout. The musical programme was well rendered by the
Misses l'Ollis and Beecroft and
Messrs. Lawson, C. A. Lindsay,
Lefevre, Leckie, J. H. Deacon,
Graham, Jago, and Fred Sumter.
Mrs. Simpson acted as accompanist.. Past Grand Master T. Duke
unveiled the new banner, amidst a
scene of enthusiasm and thc singing of the National Anthem, in a
way that will long be remembered
by those present.
Speeches of congratulation and
good wishes to the lodge were
given by Mayor Kealy, Reeve May,
Aid. Irwin, Wheeler, Braim, and
Coun. McNaught These were replied to on behalf of the Orange
Association by Bro. A. Hall.ot the
Toronto Sentinel, and P.G.M.
Bro. H. G. Thrift.
Ice cream and other refreshments were served during the
evening and the proceedings terminated with a vote of thanks to
the mayor and aldermen, and the
entertainers. Much credit is due
the committee for their excellent
arrangements, they beingJ.D.G.

W.C.r.U. Notes
The Provincial Women's Chris
tian Temperance Union of British
Columbia celebrated the silver anniversary at their annual convention in Victoria last week. The
North Vancouver delegates were

P. Wheeler and Mrs. Wm. Hall.
All parts of British Columbia sent

this organization everywhere, and
thc residents of the Capital City,
together with the authorities, civic
and ecclesiastic, extended to the

Lynn Valley Coons
Hunting coons in Lynn valley is
rare sport, judging from the follow
ing recital of actual experience by
a well known resident ol the vitley.
Having good reason to believe that
I certain stump was harboring a
jolly coon, both sleek and fat, this
huntsman bold decided to try his
hand at the sport rendered famous
in stories ol "de cotton and de
co'n." Accordingly, a quantity ol
hay, cotton batten and oakum was
gathered together, and in imposing procession, comprising lour
humans and four dogs, solemnly
wended its way to that particular
stump, and straightway placed the
coon citadel in a state of siege.
The elements provided proved a
cinch in the smoke raising line, and
it was not long before things began
lo happen—that is, the coons be
gan to appear. The garrison turned out in force to dispute the situ
ition with these rude invaders of
their home.
Now, the informant of this paper seriously declared that there
were at least 24 coons in that
Hump. An attempt was made to
get the eslimtte down to a working basil of ten, but the effort was
indignantly spurned and the best
that could lu limn was to compro-
mis. at 14, so Ihere it rests. The
a "im forcts prepared to desert
their stronghold, and they strictly
complied with the famous injunction: "Stand not upon the order of
your going." Their retreat was in
fact an ignominious scramble;
"every mm lor himsell tnd the
Well, thit il, the   huntsman     take
lhe hindmost." This he proceeded to do tnd there ensued t lively
si ramble for coons. One member
ol the ptrty succeeded in lecuring
1 particularly lively and fascinating little coon by the tail, and was
congratulating himsell upon bis
lortunate capture, when 1 more
particularly lively little coon jumped from the stump and landed on
the captor's head, whereupon lie
reconsidered thc matter with due
deliberation and concluded that
the little coon's tail belonged to
himsell ind thit the best thing to
do wn to allow him to convey it
with him wheresoe'er he might
wish. The brive Lothario of coon-
dom thereupon toted his rescued
sweetheart into the lorest depths.
When the proceedings were final y concluded and the results ul>-
iilati il, i( wn discovered tint between men ind do,:-, four coons
hid Nr 1 ciptured. The procession wn  then  formed 11 before,
with the exception, that instead ol
hay, cotton and oakum,each member of the party now carried a coon
hy the tail. These coons had been
scientifically examined and had
lieen declared judicially dead, but
as the procession moved along in
1 state ol studied dignity and sol-
mnity, the equanimity was snd
lenly and rudely disturbed,becau-e
one of those poor dead little coons
promptly seized the member of the
party who was conveying him upon the south side ol his person,
thereby throwing that member into a state of most unbecoming discomfiture (in point of fact he yelled like a red Indian on thc warpath), and causing him to release
his hold upon the corpse of the
dead little coon. Life may be
electricity or it may not be, anyhow something got into that cantankerous coon and it cantered
away among thc trees, actually
winking as it went.
Now, there are anywhere Irom
ten to twenty gay little, sleek
little, jolly little coons ranging the
terraces along the murmuring
Lynn, silently hut cogently calling
the knight of the gun to thc chase.
The veterans ol the latest campaign have made a iitisfactory recovery.
The Cuttysark and Napanee en
gaged in their fifth sailing rare on
Saturday, the former winning in
what proved to be a drifting match.
