A resolution endorsing the

Sir,—I hope the president of
the council may have influence
enough to get a governor-general's bronze medal Ior Charles
Lawrence,who headed the North
| Vancouver school last year at
thc high school entrance examinations. Alex Robinson, the
deputy minister ol education,
explained to the provincial
school trustee convention at
Revelstoke last winter, that the
bronze medals were given to the
places that sent up the most
pupils at the high school entrance examinations.
! North Vancouver, Penticton,
Lady smith   and    Collingwood
'each sent up eight pupils,   and
'are a tie for the last three
medals, as twelve other places
sent up more than eight.
Ladysmith got one of the
medals. The head pupil there
had only 657 marks, whilst C.
Lawrence got 729 marks, there-
lore he is beyond a doubt, entitled to one ol those medals.
Will all lovers of justice
please give tlieir honorable representative no rest until he
gets lhat medal for North Vancouver,

thc methods ol handling timber

V. C. Tircman is having met-
ed an ollice building on Lonsdale
ave., near the lerrv landing, for
real estate purposes.
Your Last Chance to Buy in
We have a few of the 50 x 111 high level lots still left,
a few days will see the last of these at $175, quarter cash,
balance one and one-half years.
We can assure you that the bridge across the Second
Narrows will be a high level one, the terminus on the north
shore will be in Burrard.
Consider the prices of lots adjacent to the ferry landing
in the City of North Vancouver, and remember that Burrard
will be closer to the City of Vancouver by two miles and
many minutes.
Can you appreciate the possibilities of Burrard ?
