Horticultural Society
The board of directors ol the
Horticultural Society are busily
engaged in completing prepara
tions for the annual exhibition, to
be held on Saturday. Sept. 5. At
the regular meeting held Tared iv
evening, it was decided to hold a
general meeting nf the members
this (Friday) evening.
The finance committee will perfect a plan of organization (or the
the exhibition. Committees will
be chosen Irom the membership at
large and each committee will
have as chairman a member of the
board of directors; the committees
will report to the board. Final
arraagements lor the prize list

The exhibition proper will be
held on Ssturday, September 5th,
and this will be followed on lhe
evening ol the 7th by a popular
concert and an assembly, arrangements for which are well under
way. Several well known and
popular performers from Vancouver have consented lo assist and
when the programme is finally arranged it promises to be one of exceptional merit.
Sons of England
North Vancouver is rapidly becoming a centre lor fraternal societies, almost all of the more prominent organizations being represented. In addition to those already here, tha Oddlellows are organizing a strong lodge, and, by
advertisement in another column,
I it will   be  seen that the Sons of
(rom  San   Diego,  Cal, about a
month agn,and recently moved oul ________________
to Capilano, where  Mr. Gordon | En8'*n<! -tl" purpose doing like
owns  considerable   acreage  and
where it had been his intention to
erect a residence. Mrs. Gordon
had been subject to periods of
melancholy (or some years, but
Mr. Gordon was not aware of this
lact when they were married seven
months ago. She had repeatedly
expressed her (ear that this melancholia would lead to insanity and
had on previous occasions attempted to lake her own lile. Upon one
occasion, Mr. Gordon discovered
her at the water's edge at (our
o'clock 10 the morning and had induced her to return home.
On Thursdlv morning about 8
o'clock, Mr. Gordon and his son,
accompanied  by   Mrs.  Gordon,
wise. A meeting is called of all
those interested, at the Orange
hall, on Thursday evening next. It
is expected that 30 or 40 charter
members will be obtained (or the
new lodge.
TraHlc Increasing
The steady increase in the traffic
over the local lines o( the B. C.
Electric Railway manifests thc
gratifying growth ol thc city, as
well as the popularity o( the north
aide ol the Inlet for outing trips,
etc. During the week including
July ist the passenger traffic showed an increase ol 2775 passengers
carried over   the  corresponding
week of the previous year, while
the traffic for the week ending
July 18th showed an increase of
1737 passengers over the corres
ponding week of 1907. The average weekly advance will not be less
than 1000 people and will probably reach 2000. Just at the present
season the Capilano line enjoys
the largest patronage, due to the
many picnic parties going in that
direction. The Lonsdale ave traffic is reliable and is showing gratifying development. The Lynn
valley line is perhaps the steadiest
earner, taking the year through.
The increased business in the railway and light departments has
rendered necessary increased expenditures in connection with the
office staff. Tlie rolling stock of
the local branch has also been increased to seven cars,as compared
with four last year. These facts
are a valuable index to the actual
growth of the city and are very encouraging.
High School Facilities
The public school board will
meet this evening. One ol the
most Important items of business
will be the action to be taken with
respect to additions to the teaching staff lor the ensuing year. The
fact that eight candidates from
North Vancouver passed the high
school entrance examination, and
that there are several others in the
district facilities for advanced education that would be adequate for
the present and would form the
inicluiis ul a high school,for which
the city would be justified in approaching the government in the
near future. The educational facilities of a city constitute one of
the foremost considerations upon
the part of families who arc seeking a home, and there is every
reason why North Vancouver
should keep right up with public
ii*i|iiin uu ni-, in these matters.
The school board should manifest
their enterprise by adopting an
energetic and progressive policy at
this important juncture in educational matters.
Successful Picnic
The Sabbath school picnic held
jointly by lhe Methodists and the
Baptists of the city at Stanley
Park, on Tuesday, was a decided
success. The day was ideal for
the purpose, while the attendance
of parents and children was very
encouraging. The races and other
events that composed the day's
programme were entered int*} very
heartily by tbc children. The pic-
nicers returned home l.y the 8.15

agh, ul Vancouver, president and
NKCO.VD    CANYON    ON    I'U'll.iMi    1  11 K K li
city .111,. district who are ready for
junior high school work, has rendered it advisable lor the trustc, 1
to seriously consider thc need ol so
arranging the staff that these pupils may be provided with facilities
on this side of thc Inlet for pursuing their studies.
Under existing conditions this
body ol ten or twelve boys anil
girls is compelled lo seek high
school tuition in Vancouver. It is
none too certain that that city can
continue to accord them these (.1-
1 ililities as in the past, as the Vancouver school board is lace to l.n ■
with a very difficult problem to
provide adequate facilities lor the
crowd nl high school pupils within
her own precincts. Added to this.
it is highly desirable, from a Norlh
Vancouver point of view, that
educational interests on the noith
side of the Inlet be made to centre in this city. This can readily
be accomplished by keeping pare
with the progress ul tlie pupils
and providing such facilities as
are required from lime to tuna
It is not desirable from am um
point that the youth from this city
and district be allowed too seek
educational facilities outside. Thc
expense attendant upon duing
juniot high school work in connection with thc public school, would
not be at all heavy.
The proposition is made that,
instead of engaging a juvenile
teacher as an addition to the staff,
an assistant male teacher be employed, who would I.e capable of
relieving the principal of a sufficient portion of his present duties to
enab.e him to take charge of the
junior high school class. This is
the method that is almost always
followed when high school work is
first undertaken in a school district and, in point ol fact, the
Vancouver school board proposes
adding such a class to Lord Roberts school and to lhe Seymour
school, either of which is over
twice as large as the local school.
The scheme is altogether feasible.   It would give the city and
director respectively of the British
Canadian Wood l'tilpS 1'aperCo.,
whose plant is located al Port Mellon, on Howe Sound, were in the
city last evening, for thc purpose
ol conferring with the council with
respect to the company securing a
franchise for the laying of pipes
.1111' the supplying of gas within
the city limits. The gas is a byproduct in the manufacture of
wood pulp anil the company will
bc in a position to supply the city
at reasonable rates.
Result of the Marathon
Just as Tin Kxi'Ktss is going to
press, word comes ol thc result ol
thc great Marathon race in connec
tion with the Olympic games in
England. Italy won first place,

runner, proved a disappointment.

at present and the steady growth
ol the system manifests the gratifying expansion of thc city.
The local board of school true-
tecs are getting in readiness to

flag shall float continuously over
every schoolhouse in the province.
The government, ol course, supplies the flag, and John Nye very
generously donated an excellent

Considerable anxiety was lelt
upon the part of thc many friends
nl P Larson last Friday, because
ul his failure to reach home at the
appointed lime from a trip to his
ranch at Eagle harbor. Mr. and
Mrs. Larson, accompanied by a
lew Iriends and several children,
took a run up to the ranch in their
motor launch, intending to return
that evening. When no tidings
was received up to midnight, J.D.
Duke started out to investigate,
and when no news came up lo the
following morning, A.J. McMillan
proceeded to load up Ihe tanks ol
his launch to join the searching
flotilla. The sight ol lhe launches
coming down thc Inlet, however,
intercepted his departure. The
delay was caused bv thc fact that
the motor ol Mr Larson's launch
got out of order when about a mile
out on thc return trip. The party
rowed back to the ranch and on
the arrival of Mr. Duke s launch,
ib 1 ninl to remain at thc ranch for
tin night, as the tide would be too
strong through the Narrows for
the one launch with the other in

to the effect that the bonds will

mediately; laid over for reference.
From Hon. F. J. Fulton, piovin-
cial secretary, with reference to

ceipt of memorial iu connei Iimi

W. J Dowser, attorney general,
acknowledging application (or certificate for the new water district
and promising early attention; received. From the city council,
suggesting that the district appoint three m inbeis to act on a
oint committe 1 with that ol city in

that it In* raised to grade and lengthened about 40 feet, the cosl In
ing about f 15", engineer to report.
John M. lliival int'-ivu ived the
council on behalf nl certain petitioners,wlm bad asked lor a pound
on Lynn creek. I his petition was
signed bv Jj out ol the (>j M till IS
ill the valley, and several ol those
not signing Wuiihl have done sA
bad Ihey been at home. The
council had dismissed the petition,
without even a reason to the 55
petitioners. This was not iu ,u
1 mil.un e with the statutes, which
called for a two-thirds petition,
neither was it in harmony with the
princiules ol representative government. Mr. Duval adduced
many reasons why a pound should
be established 111 lhe valley. Coun.
McNaught interposed that the petition was Ior the regulation ol firearms, as well as for a pound, and
asserted that a majority ol the
names were attached for the former purpose. Reeve Ma) explained that the action of tbe council
was due to the fact that at the
meeting at which the petition was
read, several ratepayers who were
present had assured the council
that the pound bylaw was not important and that the time was yet
too early. Mr. Duval objected to
the council being guided by the
assertions of individuals in the face
of tbe petition duly signed. Reconsideration ol Ibe matter was
R. Magennis requested that the
bridge across tbe llunie of Frederick road be lowered to grade, He
lias established a business in that
section and finds the grade too
heavy. Coun. Nye thought the
opinion ol the solicitor should be
had as to the powers and responsibilities ol the district with reference to flume crossings. The
councillors thought thc flume
would be taken out in a lew years
and the matter would adjust itself.
The engineer is to report as to the
bridge in question.
As only one tender was received
lor the work on Ross road, it was
ordered returned to the tenderer.
A plan ol subdivision (or district
lots 85a and 853 was submitted.
As certain grades are impossible
and a post is misplaced in the
