NORTH VANCOUVER, B. C, FRIDAY, JANUARY 31. 1908.
NUMBER t4
NORTH VANCOUVER
HORTICULTURAL ASSOCIATION
Annual General Meeting not as largely attended as might have
been—Officers for the ensuing year elected—Bright
hopes for the future.
The annual general meeting of
th** association was held on Wednesday evening, the president,
Alex. Smith, presiding.
In his opening remarks the president gave a resume of the work
done during the year just ending.
Very little had been done in the
past year, owing, no doubt, to the
fact that little or no interest was
shown by the members In the
work of the society, and more particularly as they had not yet succeeded in the building of a suitable
place in which to hold their annual
exhibition. It was hii hope that
henceforth the members would
take an interest in the association,
and felt certain that by exhibition
time thii year they would have the
necessary pavilion.
Secretary Docherty read the
treasurer's report, which showed
the horticultural society to be in
excellent standing with a valuable
asset on their hands. The report
was adopted. •
The election ol officers then
followed. Nearly all the members ol last yeir'i executive
were ie elected. They stand as
follows i President, Alex. Smith,
sr.; vice-president, W. L. Keene;
secretary-treasurer, R. L. Docherty ; boird of directors, 0. Cameron, J. Graham, A. Sherwood, \V.
L. Boult and T. S. Nye.
In thanking the members (or his
re-election lo Ihe office of secretary-
treasurer, Mr. Docherty uid that
in luture he would like to see the
members take an active intereit in
the affairs of the association, attend the meetings more regularly,
aud asaist Ihe officers. He felt
certain that il this wu done the
nxiety would do better and accomplish more.
The vice-president, Mr Keene,
also asked for heartier co-operation on the part ol the members,
and alio explained why the alloc
ation had not been as energetic
during the previous year as formerly. The association was now re
constructed, and was not now a
farmers' institute. Owing to the
elay in getting out the necessary
association papers it was lound
almost impossible to arrange for
an exhibition. Again, there were
other reasons why an exhibition
was not held. Some people objected to putting exhibits on display in tents, while others refused
to patronise the pavilion. As it
was au impossibility to erect suitable promises at that time, the idea
of getting up an exhibition was
discarded. The association was
not formed for the sole purpose of
holding exhibitions; it was for
meetings for the discussion of
papers most suitable (or the members interested in horticulture, etc.
at well.
Plans Mul estimates were on
hand for a suitable building, and
Mr. Keene thought it would be but
a very short time belore a loan
could he effected. He was of the
opinion that the society should not
undertake such a proposition until
the membership had exceeded the
hundred mark, and lelt certain
that if the members would only
give the necessary support a building could be erected for this year's
exhibit.
ln doling, Mr. Keene eulogised
those who had so liberally contributed to the wellare ol thc association, and moved that they be
made honorary members. This
motion wis unanimou.ly passed
The secretary stated that he had
the nucleus nl a valuable library
on horticulture in his possession,
and hoped thit they wouid soon
hive suitable quarters in which to
place theae books. H^
The meeting wu not as largely
attended ai might have been ex
pected, but the enthusiasm shown
was most gratifying.
All the members were present
at the City Council meeting Monday night.
After lhe reading ol the minutes
ol the previous meeting the following communications were read:
From R. G, Macpherson, M. P.,
acknowledging receipt of communication as regards better post-
office facilities. He stated that he
was using his efforts in behalf of
North Vancouver, and felt assured
that the time was not far distant
when Nortli Vancouver would
have a building of its own.
The secretary of the Union of
British Columbia Municipalities,
inviting the council to appoint
delegates to attend the meeting of
that organization to be held in
Nanaimo on February j6th. The
mayor and Aid. Irwin were delegated.
Thos. E. Lawson requested that
the council grant permission to remove a small building on Twenty-
second street, which was granted.
W. Nicholson*Lailey wrote on
behalf of his client, Mr. Ellwood,
of New Westminster, requesting
that he be granted permission to
move the building now occupied
by Mrs. Hogg, as a restaurant,
onto the adjoining lot, as part of
the building would be on the
alley running from the Esplanade.
The council laid the matter over
for report by the engineer.
The board of   school   trusteas
presented   the  estimate   for ik*

On Moral Reform
A good representative audience
appeared at the Methodist Church
Wedncidty evening to hear Rev.
H. S. Migee on "Moral Relorm
IV liiluium and Local Option."
In opening his iddresi he referred
lo the way in which practically all
ol thc churchei of Canada had become organiied in the Moral Relorm Campaigu; in some caies
having a Moral Reform Department just as they have an Education^ or Missionary Department.
Splendid work had lieen done by
the Moral Relorm Departments in
enlightening the public mind and
educating the public conscience,
and ai a result we were having
better laws
The speaker, would encourage
every sincere temperance worker,
but was not favorable to government control on the ground lhat
such a law did «ol eliminate the
clement ol private gain, seeing
that there would be I large mini
ber ol men engaged in the busineii
as taliried employees of Ihe govern
ment, and lurther, that it would
make thc party in power favoring
the liquor interests almost impreg
nable. It wai stated that local
option had been adopted by 310
municipalities in Ontario—about
one-hall the whole number, and
that when once adopted repeal was
almost impossible. In Midlands
the temperance people had organ
ised a company, and had taken
over 1 large hotel. The company
hid a good paying investment and
were running a hotel wbich was
considered one ol the very best in
the country.
Local option was working well
in Ontario, Quebec and Manitoba,
and was about to lie introduced
into Saikatchewan and Alberta.
Prince Edward Island had adopted
prohibition, and a commission appointed by the New Brunswick
Government to study conditions
on Prince Edward Island under
the prohibitory law had reported
lavorably.
The speaker claimed that the
adoption ol local option in Toronto
Junction and Weilmount wis
bringing these places into lavor as
residential plicei, and lhat North
Vancouver lieing similarly situated
would have an advantage not only
morally but in t financial way, hy
In mi: rid ol the liquor trade. Mr.
Magec stated thai he would spend
several weeks in the Province in
connection with Ins work, and that
he would be lollowed hy Dr. Shearer and Dr. Chown, the heads of
the Moral Relorm Departments in
the Preabyterian ind Methodist
Churchei respectively.

The report was laid over lor
lurther consideration.
The board of works recommended that an extra assessment of M
per lot be levied on the property
fronting Ottawa Gardens, to meet
the necessary expemesof their up
keep. Laid over one week, and
the board o( woiks was to further
look into the matter.
The waterworks committee recommended the pun base of 700
feet of wood pipe at an approximate cost of J200. The recommendation wis adopted.
The engineer suggested that the
stream running-down Roger's avenue be cleared ol all garbage and
obstructions lhat had gathered in
it, at same would cause annoyance
in thc spring. The board ol
worki was instructed to have the
time attended to.
The resolution dealing with lhe
thiliiatiiig nl part of Iwo lots in
D. L. 265 to the city by Mr. Fell,
was read and passed.
The council then a Ijourned.
During the year 1907 there were
many buildings erected in North
Vancouver. Compared with the
previous year there was an increase of over one hundred per
cent. On Lonsdale avenue there
were erected 17 new stores, and
several partially completed on
Second street during this time.
In the line of residences there was
a very large increase over 1906,
but still the demand always exceeded the supply.
The building iii'provtinsnts for
the year amoun'ed (0^38,750.00.
For the year 1907 they were $387,-
170, being an increase of {148,.
410.
For the year just begun prospects for a busy season in all
building lines were never as bright.
Since the first of January contractors have been figuring on many
new stores ami residences, 'which
will be begun as soon as more
propitious weather admits. The
past few days of warm sunshine
has given many home-seekers an
opportunity to see the Ambitious
City robed in sunshine.
Plans are being prepared for a
sash and door factory, which,
when completed, will give equal opportunities to builders on this side
oi the inlet with those to the south
Three good sawmills supply rough
and dressed lumber, while there is
no need to purchase shingles, lath
and other budding material elsewhere.
A large rooming house is shortly
to be erected, which "will fill a
long-felt want.
Many workmen arc compelled
to live in Vancouver owing to lack
of moderate living apartments,
who would otherwise reside near
their labors. A conservative estimate places the number at too,
and those who would take up
residence along with their families
is full fifty per cent, of this nuui
ber.
The shipyards will employ about
eighty men, which means that
they will become residents just as
soon as suitable quarter! are found.
As an investment a lew (airly
cheap-renting houses should prove
a paying one, and with the moder
ate prices of lote, this should be
easily accomplished.

The engineer iipnrled on tbe
Seymour and l.ynn creek roads,
and lhe be*) location Ior a bridge
over the latter. The board ol
works wa- instructed to act in
conjunction with the engineer as
regards the most suitable location.
The same committee was instructed to report on the most
suitable location lor a road leading
from Lonsdale avenue north to
the Lynn Valley.
Council then adjourned.
Bridging the
Lynn and Seymour Creeks.
The bridging of these creeks to
an ominodate the heavy traffic going eastwards has occupied the
attention of the district council
for -nine time past. The site of
the bridge ni, r the Lynn has been
already located, and the piers and
west abutments were budt last fall,
and also a temporary foot bridge
thrown across, awaiting tlie superstructure.
At the last meeting of the council the engineer reported on two
sites, one iu the direct lincol Keith
Road, and (lie other about three
bundled yards further up the
stream. While favoring the lower
site as being in continuation of
Keilh Road, it is on a part of the
river where the bed is shilling and
liable to -hilt still further westward, and this site would entail
expensive protection work on the
west bank. Also, between lhc two
sites there are low places on the
west bank which the river at
present overflows during floods,
and were the channel obstructed
by a bridge Jower down it might
cause the stream to break through
the Indian Reserve to thc westward.
The upper site would involve
tin construction of about a third
of a ile of approach roads, but it
ii on a straight reach of thc stream
where thc lied is made stable hy a
natural walling ol large boulders
forming a facing on each bank, and
iiuiiii iliately up stream it is -till
further protected by a bluff on
cither bank.
On Wednesday Chairman Rob-

impeded both sites.

THE DISSATISFIED.
There is nothing so detrimental
to a village, hamlet, town nr city
as a lot ol kickers. There is nothing that spreads so (ast as false
reports -and most ol these emanate from the practice ol dissatisfied talking. A man who is continually kicking is less thought of
than thc man who will go to the
proper quarters and lodge his
complaint. Hut the man on the
street is usually not conversant
with facts and figures, and labors
under a delusion. Before Koing
around and telling your neighbour
what you think of this scheme or
that scheme, be sure and get the
facts first.
Norlh Vancouver is not without
her share ol kickers, and these
kickers have done more to injure
the town than to build it up. II
a person hears members of a company continually grumbling at to
the workings or the management,
or the dividends, he at once makes
up his or her mind that that is not
the company to invest in. Just so
with a town. You cannot attract
residents within its b'irilers by
telling them your ccnnplaints a-
gainst its government, its taxes,
or its faults. Point out the better
side, and if you liave any com
plaints go to the proper place and
make yuursclf heard.
Many public men have bctu so
discouraged by the repeated onslaughts of irresponsible parlies
that in 1 moment of temper they
put a blotch on their otherwise
notable public career.
Do not have it said that "Oh,
no matter what 1 do ur try to do,
I'll be hauled over the coals, anyway." II there arc any redeeming
leatures ol any man's public work,
no mailer how small, tin not lorget
them, and tell tin in hut. In this
only way can a community ever
expect tn prosper.
That the residents ol Fromme's
camp were not blown to atoms is
mnn* through gootl luck than try
good judgment, wlen the 10x12
shack, occupied lie the Japanese,
and two were burned to death,
contained no Imi than six cases o(
dynamite, and the fact that a terrific explosion did not take place
1- regarded as miraculous.
Time and time again these [apt
ban: Iniil warned about keeping
the explosives in the shack, and
more especially so close to the
-lm. li -hows an indilletciice on
the pait ol the six families living
within two hundred and fifty feet
nf the cabin. lhe authorities
should take the matter in band
and compel everyone tiling high
explosives to have HUM sloreil a
1 onsidetable distance Irom any
habitation. The fact that some of
those resident! living so dose to
these quarters ami knowing the
presence til dynamite would be su
lax in the matter should also be
looked into. Mad the dynamite
exploded during schnnl bouts the
results would have btM too horrible to contemplate, Now is the
time tu eradicate this evil not
after results have shown the billy
for delay.
We understand that the council
will take up the matter ol framing
a bylaw to prevent such practicees
in luture. Any suggestions by
readeri as to the most advisable
rules to enact will be given a
chance to express themselves
through these colunis.
Use of Hen Manure
Hen manure is something we
want lo get rid of, and this quite
promptly and frequently, says a
Write! in Far 111 Uti Fireade. Once
every week Of two ll none too of ten
tor the gooil of tlie lowls in hot
weather unless we keep the droppings sprinkled with superphosphate or something else that acts
as a disinfectant. We also want
to make lhe best possible use of it.
If tin re is any virtue iu it we do
nol want tn lose it I always put
the stull directly on my garden
patches here and Ihere as land be
tome- available lor replanting,
Last year early in June 1 govs
my lima bean vines, then small
plant-,  a dressing nl hen manure
that happened to bs led over in
barrels from ths winter accumulation-, putting a small shovelful
.11011 ml three or four plants in the
row. This dressing was afterwards
worked into the soil with the cultivator and hue, ami for some time
no visible trace of it has remained
except that we saw its maivelous
effect in the growth ol the vines.
I have not often seen such a mass
of foliage and long strings of large
potls running (rom the ground up
to the top ol the trellis, nor such a
mass of bloom.
Since then 1 have been putting
the cleanings ol the henhouse on
various   crops — around   tomato
vines, cucumber vims, celery, etc.
and always, at least in a lavor
able (reasonably wet) season with
marked effect. Let no hen manure
go to waste.

Two Japs Burned
Saturday morning last two Japanese were cremated in their shack
in the Luin valley. Definite par
ticulars as to the cause of the fire
an lackingMuit it is presumed that
one of them was in the act of lighting a lire wiih coal oil which ignited. One of the occupants was
ill iu bed, and the olher was lelt
In charge to attend the sick man.
lt is reported that there wete
ur cases of blasting powder in
(lie buildittg at the time, hut luckily it did not explode.
As soon as the lire was noticed
willing hands ran to the assistance
ol the unfortunate men, but their
knowledge ol the dynamite being
inside prevented them giving their
aid.
The cabin and its contents was
completely consumed, and when
the fire died out the charred remains of the victims were recovered
and taken to Vancouver.

that he had buried, and pay the
merchant immediately. This is 1
