" Further, we recommend that
the above be carried out by an

outlay is warranted.
The proposal to raise one-hall
ol the lund by subscription it a
very prudent one, and every
property owner, as well as every
citizen, should (eel that the cause
ii his own. Hospital facilities are
a necessity- almost as urgent as
schools and churches Ior a residential, as well as for an industrial
location. The councils represent
many who cither cannot or will
not subscribe, hence there is
ample justification Ior a liberal
subscription being made by theni
end they havt ample statutory
power to give it.
Thc recommendations ol the
committee will come before the
Disttict Council at llieir meeting
Ilns mainf ""' Cl,v Council
will consider it on Monday evt n-
ing, and tht Hoard of Tradi will
meet on Tuesday to receive the
report of their representatives.
We may therefore hope lor very
prompt action to give effect to
the recommendations which were
made with inch heirty unanimity
by the committee alter full deliberation.
Colonize your young cbicjts in

Conservative Association
Annual Meeting
The annual meeting of the North
Vancouver Conservative Cluh was
held on Tuesday evening in the
Knights of Pythias hall. The
president, A. R. Steacy, occupied
the chair, and Secretary Thomas
Shepherd fulfilled the office of
secretary for the evening.
ln opening the meeting the president regretted the fact that the attendance was not as large as might
have been expected owing to the
other counter attractions. The
membership, which numbered over
thirty, was being added to, and it
was essential that the members
pay up their arrears, as the success of the club largely depended
upon that.
The election of officers was first
on the list, which resulted in the
lollowing being elected:
President—A. K. Steacy.
Vice-president—A. S. Hruce.
Secretary - treasurer — Thomas
Executive Committee—J. M*
Duval, W. J. Gladwin, A. Kennedy, C. McKenzie.
The secretary was instructed lo
make inquiries regarding the obtaining a complete list ol the voters for Richmond riding.
The secretary was instructed to
extend a hearty invitation to Sir
Charles HibDert Tupperto address
the organization at a date to be
subsequently arranged.
Thc following were recommended to the local lagislature for the
appointment as commissioners for
takine affidavits: E. A. Peers, A.
Kennedy, A. S. Hruce, II. E.
Rett, H. W. Fuller, W. H. Smith,
F. G. Gladwyn, J. G. Bressy.
Alter considcralde discussion the
meeting adjourned.

Area of Canada.
Three hiintlreil inilhoii (joo.ooo,
000) acres is the latest estimate ol
the forest area of Canada. This
u.is given recently by Dr. H. Ba
lit now, I Van nf the Faculty ol
Poraatry ia tha Univenity ol Toronto.    Dr. Feme* was for tears
head ol lhe fotcsltt Work ol the
United States, and is regarded as
mu* ol llie besl authorities Ml I01-
i-iry ami timber on this continent.
Dr. FefBOW said : " If we look at
tins vast forrst area from the manufacturer's point of view, from the
standpoint of inpplii I for the arts
aud iniliisltits, of its commercial
value, ami study merely the gcog
repay ami nature of the counlry in
the buht of the reports on the more
m MM outlying parts ol the same,
we will come to the conclusion
that three hundred million acres,
and pi ili,i|ts l.ss, will cover fully
the commercially valuable timber
land area, actual ami potential, or
not 'iniili more than one-hall ol
the commercial forest area ol the
United Stales."
At one tinit eicht bundled million acres was the generally ac-
c |'li d 1 sinuate ol the timl'i 1 i.iinl
ol Canada. Mr. I\ 11. Campbell,
Superintendent ol l'otistiylor Ibe
Dominion Qovernineiit, was not
quite su pessimistic in a recent
estimate. Speaking al a loreslry
convention held in Yarmouth, N.S.
he calculated the forest area of the
Dominion at about 535,000,000
acres, divided as lollows :
