NORTH VANCOUVKR, B. C, FRIDAY, APRIL 3, 1!)08.
NUMBER 7
KOBT. H. BRYCE
It is with the deepest ngret
that Thr Kxprf.ss chronicles the
death in Ihis issue of one ol our
foremost and leading citizens.
"Bob" l!t,ce, is ba was f:imi inly
known, passed to the great beyond last Sunday, dissolution
taking place at ano a. m., at the
Hotel North Vancouver. There
were psesent at the bedside Mr.,
Mrs. and Miss Larson, and Dr.
Vernier, besides the day and night
nurses. Generous to a fault, he
was a man among men and respected by ill who were acquainted
with him, and his friends were
legion. He lirst saw the light of day
at Sydney, N. S. W., on February
."iiii, 187], andofteustated jokingly that his birthdays were few and
far between. He had travelled
extensively in the Orient ami the
Occident, following thc shipping
business. He arrived here some
ten years ago on one of the
pioneer vessels of the Canaditn-
Australian steamship liners. Hit
widowed mother, who is the proprietress ol a sheep ranch, a married sister and brother reside at
his native place. He was connected with tbe Union Steamship
Company and for teveral years
purser of the steamer Cassiar,
thus being one ol the best known
men on the northern II C. coast.
Robert H. Bryce, his charming
wile, and his bosom friend, Percy
Chick, were passengers on Ihe
steamer Cbehalis, on that latefu'
Saturday afternoon, July It, 1906,
when she was run down by tbe
steamer Princess Victoria, near
thc Brockton Point lighthouse,
opposite Ihe monument later
erected in Stanley Park, to the
memory of the victims of the disaster, among whom the latter two
were numbered. He never got
over the shock, and received internal injuries, from which it uny
safely be said hastened his demise.
He was devoted to his wife, and
although he tried outwardly to
keep up appearances in joviality
before thc critical eye of the
world, the thought ol his great loss
was ever in hii mind ind be never
was the same man afterwards.
About thc middle of January
last he went to St. Luke's home,
ami remained there for about ten
days, returning to North Vancouver ibout ten weeks ago, when he
became confined to his room that
he had occupied with bis wife at
the hotel, which bid been hit
home lor the past lour years.
On Thursday morning he asked
Dr. Vernier, his physician, what
bis chances were for recovery.
The doctor told him he might die
at any moment, and that he might
live (or two or three days. Alter
the doctor left he called P. Larson
to his bedside and said to him:
"I expected this. I have never
liad a happy day since thc I'he
halts disaiter. I stood on thc
deck and saw the big boat drop on
us, and found myself the next
minute in the water, I saw nothing of the Chehalis, and I knew
that my wife, Chick and the rest
of my friends on the boat must bc
all gone. Itwasiwful." He was
conscious to the list, and prayed
lor his mother, titters and bis
relatives and all hii Iriends and
also his enemies, and regretted very
much that he could not learn the
outcome of the case before he
departed, and smilingly bade goodbye to hit friends.
The lite Mr. Bryce was 1 member of Cascide lodge, No. It, A.
F. ft A. M, the Ctuadiin Order of
Klks, Lodge No 17, the Australia
sian and Terminal City Clubs:
Vai couver.
Mr. Bryce will be missed. He
was a man of strong sympathies
and a true and warni-heartid
friend. Even as a student
was well .nli.un * 1. and was at nil
times ready ol speech and song
Democratic by sympathy and
training, ha w.is yit keenly alive
to the fact that human virtues and
failings are fairly distributed
among classes as individuals. He
was no charlatan. He had the
true man's scorn fur the impudent
mountebank and pretender, who
makes empty parade ol popular
sympathies and animosities in
order to win place and power for
himself. Nature had made him ■
fighter. He was an earnest worker
and met the blows of circumstance
with brave nml cheery optimism
It was well .imi fitting that thc
last respect paid to the deceased
were by the Free Masom. Mr
Bryce believed in fraternalism and
brotbtihood—brotherhood of the
highest level, ami on the proudest
grounds .ill unable. Patriotic
Britisher be took a keen interest
in public affairs, all kinds of field
and aquatic sports. He also tcok
a pride in cquine3 and canines,
being the owner of the celebrated
running horse Sandstone and the
the noted prize - winning pointer
Queenie, as well as tbe life saver
Irish water spaniel Colleen.

Water from Seymour Creek
Vancouver city officials expect to
h*tve water from their new system
on Scymciir creek, on this side ol
the iulet, inui into lhe Teiminal
City by July next. Fngine. 1 Mm

Park Drive by July 15. The work
is all under contract save the laying of the steel mains and tbe
only uncertain lactor in lhe un

Second Narrows.
Another Prince Rupert

Mr. Bryce died in bis 37th year,
when many practically begin useful tareers. To all appearances
the best was in store (or him. By
the companions -ol bit boyhood
and the fliends of bis laler days
be will long be held in kindly af
fectionate remembrance. May the
duit lie lightly on his breast.
A very large number ol Iriends
and acquaintances gathered in Center ft Manna's chapel, Vancouver,
Tuesday afternoon, at 1 o'clock, to
pay respects to thc memory of the
late Robert Bryce. At a.30 the
remains were conveyed to the Ma-
s.iinc temple, on Granville street,
where services according to the
Masonic rites were conducted by
S. W. W. Brn. Morrison, of Cascade lodge, A.F.& A M., No. 12,
of which deceased was a member.
The casket was covered with a
prolusion of very hindiome floral
tokens, and . mongst those noticed
were:—Anchor, Mr. ind Mrs. P.
Lirson; anchor, Hon. F. Carter-

Tin' early decaoM of a citizen of
ability, energy and probity is 1
matter of public regret under all
circumstances, but the unusually
sail evi its which culminated in the
It aib ol Mr. Bryce arc such as to
stir the deeper sympathies. While
sterner temperaments may not appreciate the distinctive traits which
Mr. Brycc's character manifested,
mn ItheloM that close union of
luart and faithful friendship.v.buli

who win sn suddenly and tragically torn from bun, and whose removal completely dntrayed lor

THE EXPRESS, NORTH VANCOUVER, B. C,
The First Engagement Ring
and the Last Word
" Resolved, That Women Have
Equal Eights with Men," was the
subject of an interesting debate it
the weekly meeting ol the Young
People's Club last Thursday evening. Tbe lady members, who were
responsible Ior the affirmative side,
found an able champion Ior then
cause in Miss Peers, whodiscussed
tbe question (rom every conceivable standpoint -authorship, theology, law and medicine, being pro
(essions in which woman bad al
ready equalled, if not excelled, the
capabilities of mere man.
Miss Maggie Phillips, a recent
arrival Irom the King's Hotel,
II ul I,,win, England, infatuated her
admirers by a strong address on
the Suffragette question.
Mrs. Simpson dwelt most earnestly on the household and domestic capabilities (?) of man.
VV. C. Gladwin upheld that
woman's place was at home, to attend the worries md cares of the
Itmily. He pictured tender woman
pleading for one of her sex before
a stern judge, and hoped tbe day
woman entered parliament, which
he trusted would not be in this
age, she would bc prepared to don
tbe kilt and shoulder a rifle in de
fence of her country. He concluded by reminding thc lair sex
that the first passages ol scripture
placed man ruler over woman.
Mr. Kelly and Mr. Simpson,' in
shcrt but effective speeches, sup
ported the leader for the negative
Before the ballot was taken, an
open discussion was entered into,
things witty and sometimes displeasing (or either side being
brought to light by thc severa
speakers, and the result ut the ballot, which was altcrwirds taken,
proved the great zest ind vigor
in which the ladies hid entered
upon the debate, mere men having
to admit defeat by an overwhelming mijority.
Next week the members of the
club are to spend in evening ol
song ind sentiment it the opening of the new school, Lynn Vil-
ley.
Masonic Lodge Instituted
Surveying a New Route
Grand Master Frank Bowser, of
Vancouver, this evening instituted
the first lodge of the Masonic Order on thii side of Inlet. A large
number of visitors also came over.
This lodge will be known as Burrard lodge, and the officers were
duly installed during the evening.
The home of the lodge is located
in the Owen block, First street.
The institution took place under
most favorable circumstances and
the prospects are of thc brightest
nature.
Settled by Arbitration
Some points of dispute between
the city of North Vancouver and
the municipality have been settled
by the arbitrators, II. Senkler and
Magistrate Alexander of Vancouver. Tbe arbitratots agree with
municipality that tbey have the
right to say where lhe city's telephone poles are to be placed upon
the district highways, while the arbitrators agree with the city's con
tention upon the municipality's
claim to a share of the last ferry
rental. That claim is dismissed.
Each side will pay its own costs.
Thi Express wis fivored thii
week with a friendly call from Mr.
E. W. Webster, ol Eureka, Cil.
Mr. Webiter it the owner ol large
and valuable property interests in
ind about North Vincouver, and
his come to the city to get in line
with tbe latest developments.
Acquitted of Perjury
At a police court hearing held in
Vancouver on Tuesday, D. W.
Whitlen, of this city,was acquitted
o( the charge of perjury. The case
in question grew out of a real estate deal, affecting the south half
of lot di, in the municipality ol
North Vancouver. The perjury
was alleged to have been committed in an examination for discovery before the district registrar of
thc supreme court, in an iction
pending between Mr. Whitlen is
complainant and M. Stinson as defendant.
There are good reasons for be
lieving that tbe management of
the Grand Trunk Pacific will abandon its proposed route via Hazel-
ton at-the head of navigation on
the Skeena River in order to
make a cut-off effecting a saving
of eighty or ninety miles.
The main line from Prince Rupert after striking the Skeena at
Kitsalas canyon will, il present
plans are adopted, run up thc
Copper River, cross the watershed
and descend the valley of tbe Tel
qua. All the engineering force
lately employed along the Skeena
were recently dispatched to make
a location survey via the last mentioned route.
Still another route is available
It would run via the Copper river
and the Morris lake district, a
region which is said to possess
the lowest gradients and which is
now being visited by Division Engineer Taylor and a small party.
Their object is to make a recon
naissance survey.
The

Water System for Lynn Valley
Police Court
Mesirs. Sties ind Brewitt appeared in court this week, on i
chirge of hiving stolen goods in
their possession. The cue wis
dismissed. These goods were ito-
en from I leading Vincouver firm
by one of their employees, who
admitted the theft.
A case ol drunk ind disorderly
was reminded.
An arrest wis made today in
Vincouver, on informition laid by
Norlh Vancouver authorities, 111
result ol which I charge ol iteil-
ing i gun will be heard in the po
ice court on Mondiy.
The district council is to be congratulated on having secured water
records enough to assure tbe l.ynn
Valley antl the district north of
tbe city, a sufficient supply of water for all requirements, lt is understood that they arc taking steps
to form a water district and to
raise funds to put in a water system to meet present needs. When
the district is formed thev will also
be able to take advantage of the
city's ofler of water from their main
on tbe Lynn creek road, as far as
that can be used, and they may be
able to give counter-vailing priyi-
leges to the higher part of the city
for a time. It is satislactory to
know there is every likelihood now
ol hearty cooperation betwciii
city ind district in regard to this
and other matters of common concern. This is certainly what
should be the case, as there if a
clear unity of interest, and one
cannot suffer injury or benefit without the other being more or less
affected.

an acknowledged tact that the

where the terminus of that branch

S'loin 1 work begins on tlie main

will construction commence on
the branch line to North Vancouver.

they would make their terminals to

this place to Vancouver and other
points made this place a hub, and
as such the Grand Trunk would
ipend large sunisol money here to
handle all business accruing.
The above statement can be verified at any time, and it goes to
show that North Vancouver holds
the key to the situation for future

The Exhibition Building;
All will feel pleased to learn that
at last the directors of the Horticultural Association are in a position to let the contract (or the

is a very handsome and commodious structure, and when completed
it should he useful for many pui

prominent feature of thc annual
i ilebialion. It has In en suggested that it might be occupied with
,i midsummer show of early fruits,
vegetables and flowers, and this
course has much to commend it,
and it should prove a complete
success.
Such an exhibition would not
clash with any other in the province, hence the co-operation
could be obtained of many outside
friends. A live stock show at that
season should also prove an important feature, and there is an accommodation lor one at the pavilion.
Whan the pavilion is built, it
sliould be of use for many other
