Tins mailer which comes lulore
a ratepayers' meeting this evening
is the theme of conversation (or
the present among our cilunis.
There are various aspects that
must receive attention before an
intelligent vote can be given on
the subject.
1. What is our power to finance
this large transation? Tenders
have been invited for $145,000 of
city debentures. Have satisfac
tory tenders been received? When
these are sold we will have a debenture debt ol $300,000. We are
told that the city's borrowing
powers are up to $6oo,oco. That
may be so in the Municipal Act,
but is it so in the money market?
I think not at present.
a. Assume that the city can hor
row Soon,nm'. If ?•-.,,00,1 is paid
for the present ferry system and
property, other $75,000 will be
needed lor new boi"s and new
wharves, and bring ihe total up
to $250,000 of a new issue for this
purpose alone, leaving of the tola
borrowing powers only $50,000 for
water extensions and a sewerage
system !
3. Some look to the district lo
help out, and at one time they of-
reprvseniiitiiin  on   llu    lunud   of
diruttus.
I). II the fitly company will not
accede lo reasonable business like
proposition, and imagine lhat they
have a ""cinch" 011 the com
niunity, let them know as quickly
as possible that it does  not   exist,

fered to do so, but were turned
down. They will doubtless yet
aid a practical scheme ol ferry improvement, but it nuis'. be 'vident
that it would I"' urns', unwise of
the district to pledge lict support
loo deeply as the oils on her rt-
soiiice^ loi her own woilt will In
enormous, and the matter ul stent
ing a joint trullic and railwaj
bridge must not be n* .rli okei! bj
her councillors.
4. Assume that the transaction
can be financed what have the
council got lor the price to be
p-ani ? Another 'erry bual and
wharves worth ,dwut $(ai,onu.
Some lliink this loo high a
ligure. Il must nol be forgotten
that the city ahead) owns lhe
value of the old wharves, which
may be reckoned at $2,500, and
they own the North Vancouver.
The land speculation may ba sale
at Irom $60,000 to $So,ooo. We
understand that the Irontage is
only held at lease from the dominion for 71 years, and if that is
so its capital value is an uncrrtain
ipianlity, and the 100 foot of foreshore included in the railway plan
may bc taken for railway purposes
at its value three years ago, or it
may be wauled as a railway bonus'
5. If the ferry company honestly
wish to improve tlieir service, let
1 h'in'.el| i In 11 I.i ml at a reasonable
price, and put on boats and new
wharves. If they do not wish to
sell their land or cannot do it, let
th' in divest the company of it,
place a moderate value on their
lerry out tit. and allow the city and
district council to put in say $Iki,-
ooo between Ihem of new stock to
find the new boats and wharves,
and give both councils   suitable
and if competition can be tumid by
no other method, let an earnest
effort be put forth to get a joint
irallic and railway httdfe, and
thus open the way for a fast tramway service from city to 1 ity.
With such a service, business men
could take the car at say Granville
street, and in half an hour be
landed at any poiut on I.misdate
avenue. With a tramway connection every ton ol height could
be inexpensively delivered in
either city.
I again urge very strongly
that every aspect ol this question
must bc carefully considered I c-
|0N the city enters on a scheme ol
such proportions. Incidentally, it
mav be mentioned that every $100,-
000 ol debentures the city issues
will cost $5,(160 ol interest and
sinking fund, and that may have
to be taken off the tax revenue (or
50 years ; but some may regard
that as a trifling incident.

Board of Tradr
The city council assembled aa
usual last night in the city hall,
but later retired to the committee
room in order to accommodate the
inrnibe-rs of the bonrd ol trade who
had been called together by the
secretary to consider a lengthy
lelt. r of S. U. Schultz, in which
he took exception to the proposed
scheme to purchase the ferry.
A lengthy discussion followed,
in which His Worship the Mayor,
Aldermen Jordan, Irwin, , Mr.
Schultz and others took part.
Aid. Irwiu went into the details
of the proposition in a most convincing manlier. After delivering
his able address the members of
the council withdrew.
A further discussion followed,
after which a resolution was passed
to tbe effect that the ferry (if the
y-law passed) must be controlled
by au elective board of live, comprising the imynr and four ratepayers, ivho would not be eligible

Every ratepayer should attend
to-night's meeting in the city
hall to discuss the ferry purchase by-law. lt would be impossible for us to go into all
the pros and cans of this big
undertaking in our limited space.
Therefore, we again urge that
all interested sliould go to tbe
ratepayers' meeting, where every
aspect ol this question will be
put before the citizens by his
worship the mayor and aldermen, who have been hard al
work for the past four months
considering the purchase of the
ferry.
The board ol trade have passed
a resolution unanimously supporting the scheme, and all the members of tlie council arc a unit in
favor of the city buying the boats
and Lonsdale gardens.
So far as Thi Express understands thc details, which will be
fully brought before the meeting,
there is only one course to pursue, and that is to buy the ferry.
Let there be a big turnout.

Kvcn 'lore Jim wsa born!
When Jim come—(I.a' how good
Waa all the neighorlinod '—
And Doctor '—when I heenl
Him joke John, kind o' low,
And say: Yel, folks could go—
"Pa" needn't be feared!)
When Jim rome—John mi—'e—
A-l-etialm' over me
And baby in the bed-
Ami jea ua three, aaya V,

Aud that waa all he ■ ant
And cried jea like a rhild I—
Kiaaed me again, ami smiled,
'Cause I waa irvin', too.
And here I am again
A-cryin', aame aa then-
Vet happy ll.rmigh and through.

Forests of Canada.
The area of the forests of
Canada is estimated by Ur. Kobt
Uell, ol the (ieological Survey ol
Canada, at 2,(100,000 square miles.
or about 1,657,600,000 acres, ol
which over half may fie in pulp
wood. This may appear to afford
us timber limits illimitable, but
huge areas of these timber bind',
are inaccessible and will remain
so until vast sums of money are
expended (or transpoitation facilities, while in our more northerly
regions, the annual giowth and,
consequently, the rate ol reproduction, is slower than in areas to the
south. Hence, we will find in
Canada, as those engaged in the
timber trade ol the United States
have already discovered to their
dismav, that the stores of wood
commercially available, are by
no means inexhaustible. We still
have this great advantage, that we
can profit by the lollies and mistakes of our neighbors, and apply
the ounce of prevention rather than
wait till wc need the pound lo
cure.
A Land of Illimitable Limits?
Canada has the largest forest
area of any country in the world,
and bas also a far greater aggre.
gate of water-power than any other
country. Considering the relation
of forests to water-power, and
the relation of water* power to electrical energy in a country largely
deficient in coal,—at least in its
central provinces,—and considering further the relation to those industrial arts in which Canada excels, the conservation of those
forests becomes the gravest problem in the whole range of our
material life.
Bachelors' Ball.
Many a man fails to appreciate
his happy home because it is happy
only during his absence
The man who points out nur
faults is a true friend yet wc would
like to kick him all the same*
A guy assemblage wus present
at the Pavilion Friday, Dec. aoth,
when the bachelors of the city
uited the part of hosts at a very
elaborate dunce given under their
direetion uml management. The
hull wns beautifully decorated
wiih ll.ijjs, bunting nud ever*
greens and suspended overhead
were several large Christmas
bells, quite unique und nppropri
ate to the season. Among those
present were some of tho most
prominent people in the city, including the mayor nnd some
other members of the city council.
The programs were very taste
fully gotten up nnd contained
tweiity-limr dances besides tht
supper extras.
The music by ILirpur's four-
piece orchestra was entiiely sat-
isfueloiv.
Supper was served iu the large
iliiiiiig-iooin in lhe Hotel North
Vnncouver uml was 11 credit both

who conducted the arrangements.
Tl veiling's festivities broke
up nt llie coneliiaion of the twenty-fourth dunce ut nhout 'I
o'clock, when lule cars were in
nlli'liiliiiice to convey the guests
to their severnl homes. About
forty couples were present.

B. C. INDUSTRY
TO pi*n even the briefest notice
of all the traden and industries ol British Columbia
would require far more sr>ace
than is to he had in an ephemeral publication like the Christ*
mas number of Tiu Kxi-wtis. A
lew words, however, havin** special
reference to the mainstays ol the
province, its timber and mineral
wealth, will not be out of place
here. Representatives of these
callings may not be present with
us on this our Christmas day ; but
if they are, we extend to them the
right hand o( welcome.
The forest lands are of vast extent, the lower Fraser country
especially being densely wooded,
and yield most valuable timber.
Douglas pine is found almost all
over the sea-coast, and even up to
the Cascade range ; cedar, white
pine and maple abound all over
the province ; and Scutch fir, willow and cottonwood are found
principally on bottom lands. A
list ol over a do/en other valuable
trees might he given ; but among
tha duel may be mentioned Men-
lie's Iir, yellow (ir, balsam hem
lock, yellow pine, yellow cypress,
arbor vile, yew, oak, arbutus,
alder and cherry. The lumber
trade, however, is yet in its infancy. In 1X711 the value ol the
exports was in thc neighborhood
of It-5,000; now it is away up in
the millions. Many lumber camps
and sawmills are in operation and
give employment to thousands ol
horny-handed workmen. It ii
hardly necessary to enter into de
tails with regard to the industry
in the vicinity ol Vancouver and
New Westminster. The number
of mills that have been erected
within thc past lew years, and the
immense quantity of lumber now
annually exported to different parts
of the habitable glob*, lell their
own story.
But it is to the mining industry
that British Columbia owes its
present position. After the discovery of gold in 1857, and the
establishment of the colony in the
following year, adventurers floated
in chiefly from thc United Stales
and Great Britain and her dependencies. These pioneers penetrated the counlry as best  they
could, and have established
mining camps throughout thc in
tcrior. The principal obstacles to
the prosecution of an almost inexhaustible gold mining would
seem to be the want of roads, the
want of capital and thc want ol a
thorough geological survey. Gold
silver and copper, besides other
minerals, are found in large
quantities in almost all sections of
the province. Rut while the exports of the precious metals are
steadily increasing, it must not be
forgotten that there are also vast
deposits of coal and iron. Very
little has yet been done with the
iron ; but all must be familiar
with the yearly output ol coal on
Vancouver island, which is growing with rapid strides.
ln concluding this already too
lengthy article, it is well known
that the fisheries of British Columbia are among the richest in the
world. Its salmon, oolachans,
sturgeons,  cod, herring,  halibut.
anchovies, haddocks, etc., are
widely distributed and thoroughly
appreciated.
" Did your dear husband die intestate ? " "No," sobbed the
grieving widow, "it was liver
trouble."
" Variety," quoted the man with
the bungling brow, "is the fpice
cf life." "Yes," responded the
man with the bulbous nose; "but
that isn't the name of it now. It's
vaudeville."

I'H'iiiTis, traders ami mission, *
as a means of comtiiunication be
Iiniii them and the Indians, or
even white people spiakin
different languages unknown to
each other; and which, judging
from the way it is still actually In
use, and extending its course more
and more, bids fair to have yet
a long lease of life and existence,
says a writer in the British Columbia Orphan's Friend. The
"Chinook" jargon to which I refer, or the Trade language as
others prefer to call it, is not a
universal language ; but it comes
as mar to it as any language ever
will do, for, although proper to no
tribe or nation, whether Indian or
white, by the use of tbt
"Chinook" jargon, you may be a
Hindu, a Japanese, a Chinese, an
Indian or a white man, you can be
understood in all the native settle
ments, and by most of the iiihaln
tants residing within that immense
stretch ol country, extending from
the north ol California to beyond
the distant limits of Southern
Alaska. Nay, you may to-day
visit many ol the cities of the Kasl,
and even not a few in England, including its capital, and you will
find men and women who, upon
vour putting to them the question,
" Kata maika ?"—"How do you
do ?"—will look at   you   with
chance offered and occasion
called for it. The lollowing is an
instance: Tliey had no 'Chinook" word to express the idea of
being silly, foolish, crazy. Now
there was a French-Canadian
called "I'elleticr." The Indians,
iin.il'li* to pionounce the "r,"
1,illml him " l'elleten," This
I Vllftiir unexpectedly lost his
iiuiiii, and iu this stale did many
silly ami foolish things, lo the
iiiiii iinent of the astonished
natives. This was tlnn chance,
and the difficulty to find the word
tn express the idea of being crazy,
silly or foolish was soon settled.
It was to be l'elleten or Fulton,
the Indian pronounciation of the
name of the man himself who had
gone crazy ; and in that state had,
by different foolish and silly acts,
exposed himself to the ridicule ol
everybody.
The '"Chinook" as it was
spoken hall a century ago and
more, was puier and more classi
cal lhan the modern jargon. Hut,
whether in its primitive or in its
modern state, it has played an important patt in the evangelization
of a multitude of Indian tribes, all
over the noitli-wcst of North
America, not including Vancouver
Island.

The "Chinook" originated at
Noolka, on the west coast ol Vancouver Island, and was in existence
many years before lhe Hudson's
Hay Company and the first Catho
lit priests had crossed the Kocky
mountains. Nootka, on the west
coast, was the rendezvous of
traders ol tlillerent nationaliln& as
early as the latter part of the
eighteenth century. The nativis
knew no language except their
own ; and the traders, of course,
did not know the language ol the
natives cither. Bit those traders,
being intelligent snd resourceful
men, picked up various native
words, useful in barter; and as
they travelled along the coast, on
their mission ol trailing, they
transplanted them from tribe to
tribe, with the addition of English
words as convenience or necessity
led llu 111 to do I can lu-day
quote scores of pure Nootka
words to be found in anv "Chinook" vmabulary; some spelled
correctly, others incorrectly; but
evidently all derived Irom lhe
same source. Thesi* wunls and
exptessmns ol the Noolka language
le ii"t 1'institute the "Chinook"
jargOfl as we havt it lo d.iv, but
iini are lhe root, tin nrigiii ol the
jargon.
On tin* artival ol Lewis and
Clark, 1805, al the mouth ol ihe
Columbia river, and especially
when Astor's party nude their appearance, the original "Chinook "
received a tremendous impulse
Many English words win' brought
in, and the Preach Canadians of
the party added not a few words of
their own mother tongue. Tlnn
again the natives ol the Columbia,
and also of more distant lnlis,
who came to trade .it "Aslona."
in bartering and trading, used
many words ami expressions,
which, lor convenience, the
traders readily adopted ; and thus
the original vocabulary, picked up
at Nootka, by the addiliun ol
words taken from the language of
the Columbia river and other
Indians, increased by, and mixed
up with English ami Preach
words, culminated in thc "Chinook" largon, as it existed, closi* on
a century ago, m its original and
most grammatical state, as a conventional language.
The Indians, too, always resourceful,  made   words   when   1
