To the Editor u( I'm: Kxi'iinss:
Sir,--'Ilm distance Irojn liif*li
water to the higher side (that is to
say. to lhe north side) ol the Esplanade is 299.5 feet—say joo
feet. As it is alleged that there is
nt present a six per cent, praile*
(lhat is, an nssenl ol six (ttt Iu
each nui hci ol Lonsdale avenue)
from lhe wharf to Ihe norlli side
of the Esplanade, there are eighteen feet to ascend from the wharf
to the north limit of the Esplanade. To this would have to lie
added the height or depth of any
cutting made hy the railway,
which, at the time when lhe V.,
W. & V. survey was being made,
that company's engineer stated,
would be three to four feet below
the grass level just west ol Lonsdale avenue. Lei it be assumed,
lowever, as only two leet ol a
culling and we get lhe (ull ascent
from wharf to nortli limit ol Esplanade as 211 leet, /. 1'., 20 leet would
have to be ascended in 300 feel.
This would be all right if the 30
feet could be apportioned equally
ever lhe (ull 300 feet, making a
gratle of under seven per cent.,
but unhappily the whole ascent or
rise of .'0 leet would have to be
mnde iu 100 feet if Lonsdale
avenue be terraced or benched at
the Esplanade, instead of remaining on a straight grade. This will
be evident oil considering that the
V., W, .^ V. track, which must
run ou the wharfage level lo use
the harbor, must lie a perfectly
level track over its lull 100 feet
of width to admit of shuntitlg.
Therefore, six per cent, of grade
.it present attaching In the iiii)
•foot railroad right-of-way will
have 10 be made up between the north side ol the
railway right-of-way nml the north
side of the Esplanade, that is, the
full 20 leel rise will have lo bc
made up in 200 feel. This would
ie a ten per cenl. gratle, which
might be tolerated, although not
good for heavy traffic. Hut il
Lonsdale avenue is to be terraced
at the Esplanade the six foot rise
at present Inliinn place in lhe lun-
foot width of the Esplanade, or
apportioned to the Esplanade,
WOllld hnve lo be made up in that
part ol Lonsdale avenue which
ascended between ihe railroad
track and tlie Bouth side ol the
Esplanade, that is, the whole 10
leet ascent would liave Io be
accomplished in mo leet ol Lous-
il.ib avenue. Stub a grade would
tend to <liive iiuiiii away lium
Lonsdale avenue t" . nn 1.1 iei
grade, nml would, I venture to
think, revolutionize the valut', nl

Riley Again
On Wednesday morning Magis*
sttate Kealy conducted the court
ol the cadi in this city. The only
case on lhe docket wus thnt ul   the
only and reputable Riley Jennings,
the local snowball.
It appears thnt on tlie previous
afternoon the well-known cullored
gen'lman celebrated nn aitspu ious
occassion, being the celebration nl
his birthday, So salubrious was
he bent on lhe event that he decided, on recommendation ol a
friend or iwo, poultry being scarce
ill lhe market, lhat he would   visit
a friend's hen-coop, there to select
his choice.
Un the way thither he (ell into.
bauds deceiving, and was lelt lo
paddle his own canoe in the dark,
ness o( the night. Misstepping
he lell nil the unsuspected four
foot sidewalk, anil lay, like "lhe
warrior brave," in the ilitrk nnd
deep ditch, iiinvoundetl.
Riley was rescued by the te*
ilonblible I'liiinaconihc, Mark
Twain's dworg fancier uml cowcatcher.
Next morning, being the day
alter, North Vancouver's only In
slopogos (Allan Quartcrmain), appeared before His Majesty King
Edward's bar ol justice.
The court crier cried—Rliey,
Riley, Riley	
His counsel appealed for his
client, the proverbial stick of
liquorice. He said to liis worship
that he represented Mr. Jennings,
who was t well-known citizen
ami ratepayer, thai he did honor
to a memorable event in his career!

reflects a great credit on those

and power. Organized in i!mjN,
only nine years ago, it now has
a membership ol over three hundred thousand, with over fifteen
thousand series, a record, which,
no doubt, some ol its older sister
