The attention oi the citiseni

llie [act that the Canadian government scheme for old age annuities is now complete, and
applicants may procure forms

ccs. ihe plan plumbs a method whereby by small payments,

is Inalienable. An annuity mav
Ik- contracted for at live' vcus
"1 age, hut nunc will Ik- paid
short of J5 years of age, unless
on account of disablement. Payments for any amounts as low
as .'.s cents psr week will be If
celled, ur larger amounts either
monthly, quarterly or \carlv.
A man of forty BUy pay arrears in a lump sum and begin
as al iu years uf age, ut anv

all are made for expenses, as
these are all borne by the government, As illustrations ol
the cost ,tn.| results: "A man

The government of Canada
will have one of the largest exhibit buildings at the Alaska-
Yukon-l'acific exposition.
Canada's exhibit at the A.-Y.
P. exposition, will be the most
comprehensive ever undertaken
by the Canadian government in
connection with a world's fair.
One of the finest views on the
grounds ol the A.-Y.-P. exposition will be from the verandas
of the Canada building, which
overlooks two lakes and three
mountain ranges.
The Yukon territory will have
a display at the A.-Y.-P. exposition typical of the Northland.
Canadian breeders ol .blooded
stock will have a big part in
live stock show at the A.-Y.-P.
exposition.
The mineral resources of Hritish Columbia will lie lully
shown at the A.-Y.-P. exposition.
Canada's building at the A.-
Y.-P. exposition will be ready
to receive exhibits by May i.
The government of Canada
will have its building at the A.-
Y.-P. exposition completed and
ready to receive exhibits by the
latter part of April, thirty days
in advance ol the opening day.
With the possible exception of
the state of Washington, Canada will have the most complete
display ol agricultural and horticultural products exhibited at
the 1909 lair. Recent advices
received hy the exposition management from the Canadian exposition commissioner, states
lhat the work of collecting and
assembling the exhibit ol thc
government of Canada has been
under wav for several months,
and it will lie the most elaborate and comprehensive display
ever undertaken by the Canadian government at any exposition. In the exhibit partuulat
attention is given to the agricultural resources of the country, and both Hritish Columbia
and Beaten Canada will be fully represented in the display.
ln addition lo lhe exhibit ol
the Canadian government the
Canadian Pai iln Railway will
have a building and exhibit al
the exposition.
As British Columbia is directly adjacent to the exposition
lhe exhibit from this section ol
Canada will furnish the largei
portion of the exhibit. lhe
mineral resources of Hritish
Columbia will bc fully exploited and there will' lie an exhibit
ol every known mineral lound
in this section.
Canada will also make a comprehensive display ol its dairying nnd will lie a strong conien-
dor in the exposition live stock
show. Thc exposition management has appropriated Si on,one
lor premiums in this department and blooded slock irom
all parls of the Vnitcd Slates
and Canada will lie shown. Already a number ol the lies!
known breeders ol Canada have
made applications lo enter
stock. ihe live stock show
opens September 27 and closes
October 9. This late date was
arranged in order to allow Iwo
ol the larger circuits to close in
Seattle during thc exposition.
The wireless telephone will lie
demonstrated on the grounds ol
the A.-Y.-P. exposition. On
Klondike circle, neur the main
entrance, will Ik- built a rustii
tower iimi leet in height at the
base oi which will bc an exhibit
hall lor wireless apparatus invented to the date ol the opening uf the exhibition.
Wireless telephones will ibe installed on the grounds and
daily demonstrations made by
the United Wireless company,
A daily ncwspa**cr, containing
news received by wireless and
messages froifl vessels at sea,
•mill be published al the fair.
The wireless equipment will lie
installed on the top ol a blty
loot pole to stand on the tower
giving the wireless station a
height of 150 feet from the
ground,
Near the top of this pole will
bc a series of lubes and, as messages are being sent out from
the station, there will be a kaleidoscopic cHect produced by
the electricity passing through
the varied colored globes.
At the present time the company has a station at Vancouver, where the wireless telephone is being perfected. The
wireless 'phone was used to
some extent on the warships
during the cruise of thc Atlantic fleet to Seattle and experiments are now being made in
New York.
SEWERAGE SYSTEM
The address on sewerage systems, given by District i.ngin
eer Donald Cameron, before Onboard of trade last week, was
of a highly instructive and interesting nature and proved exceptionally helpful lo all who
were in attendance, as did the
subsequent discussion of this
important question. In his
opening remarks, Mr. Cameron
briefly traced the development
of sewerage systems, with the
several attempts to dispose ol
the sewage, by utilizing it in
some Way, all of which latter
had proven failures. It was at
the point where the sewage was
to be disposed of that the septic
tank was designed to come in.
It was designed to receive the
discharge from the sewers at
the outlet, and to promote the
purification process, and was
particularly valuable where adjacent waters were required for
pufblic use.
There were two systems of
sewerage, generally known as
the separate system and the
combined system. The separate
system is designed to provide
for only sewage proper, and has
been adopted in some instances
where the sewage must be disposed ol by pumping. A one-
quarter inch rainlall in twenty-
four hours is equal to trom
seven to ten times the ordinary 1
flow of sewage, therefore this!
system is never a success, as
lutside water finds its way in
despite all precautions. The
combined system is the one]
usually in vogue and would bc i
the right system for North 1 an- \
couver, It is designed to carry
.Way all sewage, antl also a
large portion of surface water
from roofs, yards and streets. I
The configuration ol the ground
in this city is so ideal, that an
excellent sewerage sysiem can
lie installed at a minimum cost.,
The installation of a sewerage
is usually the result of some
•pidemic or similar calamity.
Authorities move with proverbial slowness and when spurred
lo action by prevalent illness,
ihey sometimes act hastily and
the result is costly and unsatisfactory.
A comprehensive system Ior
North Vancouver should be outlined at once. Purification
works would probably not he
required in this city. The principle upon which the septic tank
operates, is the separation ol
ihe solids in the sewage, breaking them down by bacterial action, and reducing them to an
humus, followed by their gradual discharge. Thc trunk sewers at North Vancouver might
safely discharge into the sea,
lhe outlets being so formed that
none of lhe solids could make
their appearance on the sur-!
face; while septic tanks could he ;
so arranged that with every
fall ol the tide, a certain quantity ol humus, which is of a
aoii odorous nature, would In-
carried away. This process
would be economical and Iree ol
pflcKS, At the same lime, an
ultimate point should lie select-1
ed, and all outlets of sewers j
laid at such a level as will pu-
mit ol their being converged a 11
this point. In time it may be
necessary to go fartlier aw.n
and to convey the sewage outside the First Narrows, but
that time is far remote.
lt should he home in mind
that the flow of sewage is not
uniform. Thc great consumption of water takes place during nine hours ol each day.
During the night there is practically no consumption ol water
but beginning at 6 a.m. it
steadily increases, reaching its
maximum at 12 noon, when it
is three times as great as the
average. The sewers must bc
ol sullicient capacity to carry
this maximum flow. In addition to this, .Key must also be
capable ol carrying ofl the first
flush of every storm, when the
remainder can be taken care of
by means of storm overflows.
As to the best form of sewer
they would be better made on
the ground and might be of
either vitrified pipe or stoneware. Il is most essential that
the) be made absolutely watertight. Concrete pipes aie now
made which satisfy all requirements. They can bc made right
on the ground and perfectly watertight, while the cost is decidedly reasonable. There is no
evidence to show that concrete
pipe will disintegrate, excepting
under circumstances in which
any sort of pipe would do so
The present Norlh Vancouver
system is really a cess pit sysiem and not a septic tank system. The tanks arc too large,
as they should be only of sufli-
cienl dimensions to accommodate aboui Ihrci-lourths of the
daily How at one time. If larger
over scptiiism lakes place and
a nuisance results.
