NUMBER  20
MONDAYS BIG CELEBRATION
Dominion Day and the Birth of Our New City Fittingly Honored
rREBIDEKT HENDRY OK THE V.. W. AY. RY.
Guest at Monday's big celebration.
As what might,be termed the official opening of the celebration
generally the principal speaker was
the Hon. F. Carter-Cotton, who,
after the Sixth regimeut band had
played an appropriate selection,
was introduced by Mayor Kealy
at the city hall on Dominion Day.
Mr. Cotton said that he was looked
up to as the chief official dry
nurse of the new city. While
they were met that day undet very
favorable circumstances it could
not be overlooked that there had
been some serious and trying times
in connection with the passing of
the incorporation act. The first
bill put through was found to have
cerebral non-taxable railway meningitis. That proved fatal of
course, and with tears and sorrow
they laid it in the grave. The
new bill, he thought, would prove
generally satisfactory and the now
city showed signs ol lusty lile.
He was glad as a citizen o| Vancouver to be present and oiler his
congratulations. When twenty
years ago Vaecouver had ils fust
Dominion Day celebration it was
not nearly so imposing an affair as
that ol this day in North Vancouver. They had many advantages
that Vancouver did not have in
1888. The people ol Vancouver
at that time were very proud because they were going to have bob-
tailed tram service with a mule for
motor power and an extra mule at
Cambie street to help the other
mule up the hill. North Vancouver had at its inception as a city
an up-to-date tram service. There
were many other advantages that
be might enumerate, and starting
with these there was uo reason
why the new city should not progress.   He hoped that they would
carry out to the full the amenities
of city life. North Vancouver
should be, in fact and in name, the
garden city of British Columbia.
He would like to inculcate one
thing among them and that was a
pride in their city that would be
shared by every man, woman and
child within its borders and a
pride that would forever stand in
the way of the establishing of
slums or so-called Chinese quarters. They wanted it to be a city
of homes where they could rear
their families free. He was pleased
to see Mr. Kealy elected the lirst
mayor. Thry could not have
made a better choice. It was a
lilting appreciation of the way
in which he had attended to his
duties as reeve ol the rural municipality. While congratulating the
city he could not but also congratulate the rural municipality
also. With llieir present reeve
they were always assured of
"May" weather.    Mr. Cotton then
said he had a very pleasing duty
te perform. Mayor Kealy was
standing beside him, but at this
juncture Mrs. Kealy was called
forward. She had in her arms
their infant son and to him Mr.
Cotton read the following address,
which was beautifully engrossed:
To Arnold Norvan Kealy:
" We, thc undersigned officials
of the municipality of North Vancouver, have the honor of presenting these little mementos and
souvenirs as a mark of esteem to
yourself and parents. May you
grow in likeness to your illustrious
lather, who has occupied with due
honor the position of councillor,
thrice reeve, and has been elected
by acclamation the first mayor of
the newly incorporated City ol
NorthVancouver on this year'of
your birth. Signed by Wni. F.
Emery, Wm. J. Irwin, Dr. A. McKay Jordan, W. H. May, D.
Amskold, A. Davis, Wm. Loutet,
E. J. Peck, Alex. Philip, Edith
W. Smith, Wm. J. Stein, J. J.
Woods.
"North Vancouver, July ist,
1907."
Mr. Cotton then handed over a
beautiful bound album ol North
Vancouver views and a silver set,
on the chief piece of which was
engraved the following:
"Presented July ist, 1907, to
Arnold Norvan Kealy, ol the City
of Nortli Vancouver, Canada, to
commemorate your birth, May
17th, 1907, having been born on
the day of the gazetting of thc
incorporation of the city of North
Vancouver, B. C, from which your
name, " Nor Van," is derived."
Mayor Kealy was positively overcome for a moment. He said he
generally was known to be ready
to take a fighting chance, but they
would have to excuse him this
time and he escorted Mrs. Kealy
Irom the dais.
Mayor Bethune was lliun called
on and he spoke lor a few niomi nts
while Mayor Kealy was recovering
liis eqiilihriuin.     He  n verted tu
the fact that when Vancouver
celebrated 20 years ago she had
not the advantages ol North Vancouver today, but the Terminal
City took up the affair with enthusiasm just the same and m?de a
success to bc proud of. He hoped
the tremendously successful celebration ol today was an augury of
North Vancouver's future. He
hoped the day was not far distant
vben Vancouver and North Vancouver would be one city with a
population of ball a million.
liy this time Mayor Kealy had
got control ol bis emotions and
again came forward. He said that
he indeed stood in a proud position
as the first mayor of North Vancouver. Sometimes when he was
utterly taken hy surprise his feelings got the better of him. Thit
had been one of the occasions
He reminded them lhat they .were
celebrating the 40th birthday ol
the Dominion and made some
patriotic reference to Canada. As
to Mayor Belbune's suggestion be
would not stop at 500,000, but
would rather speak ol 5,000,000.
He hoped that Mr. Cotton's hopes
lor progress would be realized and
that Vancouver would not be able
20 years hence to have the laugh
on North Vancouver because of
her not having made equal strides
ahead in her first 20 years. They
had to give Mr. Cotton much ol
the credit lor getting the incor-
paration bill put through in proper
shape, and they also owed thanks
to the incorporation committee.
He drew a beautiful picture ol
Nortli Vancouver as she should be
20 years hence, lie welcomed all
(he visitors and wished for ihem a
ripping good time. This feature
of the day closed with rounds o'
cheers for Vancouver, North Vancouver, Mayor Kealy, Baby Kealy
and (hen some tigers.
Athletic Park Opened.
The only other spiechmaking ol
lhc day was at the opening ol the
athletic   grounds  alter luncheon
R. G. MACI'HKRHON, M. P., Who took pari in Monday's demonstation
THE CITV OB NORTH VANCOUVER
The orator on this occasion being
Mr. R. G. Macpherson, M. P.
He lelt a double plcasare in having
to perform that happy function
because be had watched with in
terest the growth ol Norlh Van
couver for fifteen years, and re
joiced in the progress and also because he was a lover of athletic
sports. Any place that took no
intercsl in athletics was decadent.
The Anglo-Saxon race was always
to thc front in athletics, and thc
fine body ol men he saw around
him was prool lhat North Vancouver was not decadeut. Looking back over 40 years ol Canada's
history there were many men who
had bad a hand in the nation's affairs of whom they could justly
feel proud, and ihey did well to
lollow in their footsteps. He thru
formally declared the grounds
open.

wlm said British Columbia is 1 n-
joying a period ol great prosperity,
ami Vancouver and Noith Vancouver are gelling their share ol
it. Vancouver has been of great
help to Norlh Vancouver. His
Worship jocularly remarked that
Vancouver sent the B. C. Electric
Railway, the Bank ol B. N. A,
Mr. Heffell, Mr. Woods, Mr. Tailor, the chief ol police, Mr
Wallace, and Mr. Larson. Con
tinning, he said: ". The coat ol
arms of North Vancouver, the
bee hive, is an excellent om-, but
the citizens must not be like the
bees and only work in the summer
Tbe citizens ol the 'iiitant city
expect to build a steel bridge
across the inlet. Tiny have
already built a budge ol good will
and fellowship that will last when
thc steel rots away. The time
will come when there will bc a
great population on both sides ol
the inlet, and 1 want to sec a

Vancouver will sec that it is to

Vancouver is one-third tin- size nl
Vancouvei in men, bul it will be

natural wealth cannot bc gut nver.
There ant wonderful possibilities
in the valleys, Look at the
enormous growth ol Vancouver in
the lasl ten years, Aflcr a city
has reached a population nl 50,-
onu it grams by leaps ninl bounds.
Vancouver started with about 500
people and no railroad. She now
has one ninl onu coming in, or
rather in, and others coming in.
Some will come to Nnrth Vancouver, Vancouver grew from
nothing, She lliul tu look upon
Victoria, practically speaking, Ior
her first increase ol population.
Nnrth Vancouverdoes nut have to.
All she is looking for is one railway to the Nortli, through an immensely rich country. Men wlm
have been there say it is equal lo
the Kootenay and Boundary dis
tricts. lt is nut only the iin
inensity ol Northern British Cr
liimbiii, but it means the enormous
wealth ol the minerals, and not
only the minerals, but timber also.
The land is teeming with timber
wealth ihat wc do not understand,
even on this Coast ol enormous
timber. In the Capilano Valley
there are 700,000.000 feet of cedar,
the finest in liriiish Columbia, and
I am sure it will not be long before
the B. C. Electric Railway Company 01 some olher company wil
recognize the wealth there. Then
there is the agricultural wealth ol
the northern part ol British Co
lunibia—wealth so enormous that
we cannot conceive." His Wor
ship sat down amidst enthusiastic
cheers.
Ex reive J. C. Keilh said he
arrived back a fortnight ago, and
thought he came to a strange
land, North Vancouver having
grown so tremendously the past
year. But now he was sure be
was home. In all his travels laid not see a better harbor than
Burrard inlet. On tin: first of
September, 1886, be looked Irom
a little wooden building in Van-
onver northwards, where iln new
city now is, and decided lhat il

Port Moody, and later to Vancouver, Some people iIiiiiii that the
government gave too much lo this

there is too much land in the
Northwest being given away. Had
nol the government dealt as liberally as it did the C. P, R. could
never have been financed, He
also referred to tho many nfter disputes which arose during lhe construction of the C. 1'. R, Few
hail any conception what it was to
build a railroad. The building ol
the Grand Trunk Pacific was the
greatest stroke ol business ol the
times. North Vancouver would
profit immensely thereby. Money
can't be got at present at London
or New York Ior railroad building
it's scarce—and that is why there
are not more roads being built.

Manager Woods, ol the V., \V.

Mi. W, M, McNeill made a
rousing speech, and referred to
the big undertaking to build the
tj'jo miles of railroad to connect
North Vancouver wilh the great
Northwest. The building ul the
V., W. it Y. would open up a great

Cul. Dudley, U. S. consul,

California is a land of extremes
— everything there grows big and
'ast, especially ideas. No country
ever saw so much wealth and
so much poverty side by side.
The mansions on Nob Hill were
so grand that their magnificence
discouraged all the owners aud
abashed thc visitors, so that when
receptions were held a keg of beer
on a saw-buck in thc kitchen and
champagne in a wash-tub, with
ham s.indwitcln.s iu a bushel
basketj wei ■ all that could be assimilated. And yet past the high
iron gates of these palaces prowled
want—"aunt, hunger and menacing.
Land was never so cheap, nor so
dear as it has been in California.
We gave a railroad compan/
twenty-five thousand acres of land
for every mile of track it buiit,
and for years a dollar an acre wns
thc ruling price at which you could
buy to your limit. And yet there
were at the same time little half
acres for which men pushed a
hundred thousand dollars in gold
dust over thc counter and then

Henry George studied economics
at firs hand. Tho dignified frappe
which ii". received in way of honorarium lor his university lecture had
its advantages. People in Sao
Francisco wanted to hear what the
editor had to say as well as to read
his utterance .1. He was incited to
give the Fourth of Jvly oration at
the Grand Opera House—a very
great compliment. Henry George
was a reformer, • 1 reformers
have but one theme, and lhat
theme is Liberty. We grow by
expn.-,;.on. There ;s no doubt but
that the univeuity lecture and the
Fourth of July oration Added
cubits tc the stature et lenry
George. In these two addresses
wc h 1: il the kernel of hit philosophy
—a kernel tl.at was to germinate
into a mighty tree which would ax-
lend 'At welcoming shade to travellers for many a decade yet to
conie.
"Proven and poverty," like
every other great book (or greal
man) was an accident—a providential accident The book wai
ten years in the incubation. It
began with a newspaper editorial
in 1869, and found form in a
volume of five htndred pag< s in
1879. Tin editorial merely called
attention '.0 the fart that Cali.
fornia in tpite 01 her vast wealth
was peopled, lor the most part,
with pe.pie desperately poor; and
that ground iu the viciaily of any
city, towu ov place ol enterprise
was bt il at so exorbitant a figure
that tiie poor were actually enslaved by the men who owned the
land. Thit is lo say, the men
who owned the land, controlled
the people who had to live on it*,
for man it a land an:mal, and can
not lives apart from land any more
than Esbea can live at a distance
from water. And moreover wc tax
lor the improvements on land, thus
really placing a penalty on enter'
prise.
The article attracted attention,
and opmed the eyes of one mail
at Uv.1—and 'hat was the man
who wrote it V.e. had wriltm
better lhan he knew; and any
writer vho docs not occasionally
surprise himself does not write
well.
Heiny George had surprised
himself, nud he wrote another editorial to explain the first. TheBe
cditoiia!$ extended. themselves
into a serial, and hand-polished
and sam' papered were reprinted
in pamphl (orm in 1871, under
the title o' "On: Land Policy."

printing ol this pamphlet was en-

Ovcrhcaird on thc Ferry
One evening lust wei I;, while on
the St. George, we were much
interested in the conversation between one o{ our North Vancouver citizens ami a well-known professor ol music who Ims lhc distinguished position of leader and
conductor of several large Vancouver musical societies. Said the
professor,—" Do you know that at
one time I hadn't n good opinion
ol them." "Why not?" "Well,
I think I was prejudiced, and to
be candid, I did not tako lime tn
Ret well acquainted with them."
" Then you formed an opinion
without knowing the lacts?"
"Y-e-s; I'm ashamed to acknowledge it. But I'm a fair man ;
yes, a very lair man. Yes, indeed,
and do yon know, that now that 1
am acquainted with ihem, 1 do say
most emphatically and without [eat
of dispute, that these ' New Art
Hell Pianos are the leaders in a
Canada."   "Why, haven't	
pianos a bin reputation ?" " Yes,
they iliil once; hut you know our
friend Mr. Doolcysays: 'When
a man (,'ets his reputation, he does
not have to live up to it.' I Iind it
the same with some makers of
pianos." "Then you judge the
' New Art' Hell on its merits and
not on its reputation ?" " Indeed
I do. I have seen so much hum
buggery in Bo-callcd 'reputations'
in my own prolession (and it is ihe
siiine willi pianos, as well as vile
patent medicines), that 1 now look
lor merit. Yes, indeed; it is
mi lit lli.it wins in tin se strenuous
days nl competition."
Just then the Imr boni slopped,
and 1 joined lhc rush lor the
wharf. But this talk had set me
thinking oi the solid ment in the
professor's words. So I started on
ii little -.1. ulli hunt on my own
account, with tho result that I am
Utisfii 'I that now there are over
mn thousand Bell instruments in
Van '■' 1 and B  C   Six years
ago tha ro was nol a " New Art"
Bell in Ihe province, I nn told.
\! ". hj maki ig a 1 ireful canvass,
I nn 1 onvinccd Ihal tin n are
more Hell instrumi nts in North
Vancouvei than all the "thei
Canadian makes pul together. I
was astonished. In nearly evi ry
homo it is ,1 •• Ni v. Ait " Hell, or
il is n "New Art" li ill that is tic-
sirul. O1.11 Musician.
