used u a park. The present road
is very bad in this particular spot,
and it was suggested by Mr. Fell
that tbe road be built around it.

WH MILK.
The question of pure, whole
some milk is occupying the minds
of Vancouver citizens at present,
and many citizens on this side of
the inlet have also discussed the
desirability of obtaining unadulterated milk daily. Not a few
residents are the owners of cows,
and many more would be were
the pound bylaws more congenial
to them. As has heen the case,
cows have nut been allowed to
roam the stteets, even on the
many blocks that are unoccupied,
but rich in an abundance of grass
suitable for grazing. The question has been asked " Why should
this by law be so rigorously
enforced when every garden is
protacted by a well-constructed
fence?" lt is only to be expected lhat cattle roaming the
business streets, and which
menaces traffic should be impounded, but a small city like
ours, with many acres covered
with grass, with nothing to destroy thereon, should not hesitate
to allow ownen of cows to pasture
their stock, provided a reasonable
amount of care is taken in watching them.
This is about the one solution
to the milk question.    People wlm
have their own cows are the only
ones certain of good milk, and if
an opportunity offers in which this
moil vitil question can bc solved,
why not give our citizens this opportunity f
-
The  proposition  ol extending
to L'ncle Sam't fleet in invitation
to visit Burrard Inlet is worthy
of the suppart of every council,
not only for the sake of beholding
the pride of our Southern neighbor,  but as a testimony ol   the
friendly relations now existing between the Republic iod the great
Dominion.    It is not .111 cvery-day
opportunity that tin present oflcrs.
Perhaps the same will not again
ofler itself in a lifetime, so by all
means show a national spiril and
open our  hospitable doors.    I he
sight ol such an   armada would
keep fresh in our  memory lor a
generation.

who is the minister-elect for Mt.

this early opportunity of hearing
him preach.
It is anticipated that the church
will be Idled at both services, and
those who wish to choose their
seats must come early.
An Undermanned
Ferry Steamer
"Tiie local Shipmasters' Association has taken the responsibility
nl affirming that the North Vancouver lerry steamer is undermanned. It is stated on professional
authority that the boat to which
hundreds ol people entrust their
lives daily carries so small a crew
that in case ol accident it is iin
possible to send men away in a
boat to obtain assistance. What
would happen if any serious disaster belel may be left lu tha imagination. The ptotest, be it remembered, is not luiied by timorous passengers, but by nit-n who
know what they are talking about
That it should receive prompt attention from the responsible authorities, unless the company is
even more prompt in remedying
matters, goes without saying. The
master mariners ol Vancouver
have performed a public duty in
making known the opinion they
have formed from expert observation. It is now for others to take
the necessary action, and to take it
without an hour's delay."
Tlie above clipping is taken
from Tuesday's ll'orld, and owing
to the seriousness of the allegation,
the manager of the (erry company
was asked for his views on the
milter. In conversation with The
Fxfress Mr. Quin, the manager,
stated that, so far as he was aware
of no intimation as to the under-
manning ol any of the ferries had
been made to the company. Inspector Kinghorn, who is directly
responsible for the proper ciew ol
the boats, had never made any
report about the inefficiency or
numbers of the crew, ai the licence
states the number to be placed on GeorBe Barlle>' llas <his *& bV

Another Meet Arranged
Between Ritchie and Miller
Those who saw the last boxing
contest between Bob Ritchie, lightweight champion of British Columbia, and Driver Miller, the ex-army
boxer, will be glad to know that
these two popular lightweights are
to meet in a return match about
the end ol this month.
It will be remembered that in
the last meeting of these men there
was not an idle moment from the
first tap of the gong, and it seems
certain that in their next meeting
there will be' plenty of action and
excitement before a decision is
given.
As it usually happens when a
bout is stopped inside the limit by
the referee, there is a considerable
difference of opinion as to whether
Ritchie would have stopped hit
man in the fifth round had the
referee not interfered.
There ii no doubt that Ritchie
had a good lead, and had punished
Miller badly, but many of the
lalter's friends and hackers were
of the opinion that their man
would have still had a chance at
the winner's end had he weathered
through the fifth round.
Ritchie his proved himself to
be a hard man to beat, and the
lact that lie can punch hard with
either hand Irom his puzzling
crouch makes him dangerous at
ill timet.
On the other hind, while not as
clever as the North Vancouver boy,
Miller is a heavy hitter, and can
take a hammering that would drop
many a boxer without Ins strength
and pluck. He is a rushing determined boxer, ind willing to mix it
it ill nines. Ritchie ia very con
hdent that he can turn the trick
igiin, and while he will no doubt
be a favorite in the betting, Miller
will have many supporters, ind
leels thit he cm give a better ic
count of himself in the second
meeting.
Thii will probably be Ritchie's
list contest here belore he goes to
Calgary, where he it mitched to
meet Billy Lauder for the Canadian
championship. Lauder has never
been defeated, but in Ritchie he
will meet a man who will no doubt
give him the hardest tuiile of his
career. The Ritchie-Miller bout
ihould driw a big crowd, ai it ii
sure to be a last affair.
The Western Corporation, Ltd.,
has made the British Columbia
Trust Corporation its assignee,
pending negotiations for the settlement of claims against it. The
Western Corporation are extensive
property owners in North Vancouver, besides operating a sawmill ami local office. The arrangement with the assignees is
for one year.
Dr, Swayne and a party of four
men have gone up Lynn creek as
far as Gallagher'i copper claim,
which they intend opening up.
Dr. Swayne is the head of a large
mining syndicate, and expects to
begin extensive operations on the
creek in the ipring. The Gallagher claim is situated about
eight miles up the creek, and has
given splendid results in the assays, several other properties will
also be worked this summer.
The following were registered at
the Hotel North Vancouver this
week : Mr. ind Mrs. Will Hill,
Mr. and Mrs. McDonald, Mr. A.
Wallace, Mr. and Mrs. Fowdry,
W. J. Massey, J. R. Watson, Miss
Martin, Vancouver: L. A. God-
rich, Herbert Godrich, Edmonton;
Dr. Jordan, Seattle.
The special sitting of the full
court opened Tuesday in Victoria
with the hearing of the ease of
Bryce tt al. vs the C. P. R., an
appeil from the decision of Justice
Martin. The steimer Princess
Victoria collided with the SS.
Chehalis, on July 31, 1906, in the
harbor, and as a consequence
seven people lost their lives. The
latter vessel wai sunk, ind included in the list of thoie who
went down on her, was Mn. Robt.
Bryce, wife of the plaintiff. Chief
Justice Hunter and Justices Clement and Irwing are presiding. Decision will, in all likelihood, be
rendered od Monday next.

Rev. Dr. Robson on
Early Days in B. C.
Probably no other clergyman or
missionary can recite the personal
hardships anil experiences ol
pioneer missionary in the early
sixties in llritisli Columbia, than
the Kev. Dr. Ebenezcr Robson,
who since 1858 has labored in this
province. Probably none can recite reminiscences as interesting,
as instructive and as entertaining
as Dr. Robson, who gave an address on his early travels in the
Methodist church here Tuesday
evening.
F'orly nine years ago Dr. Robson landed on Vancouver Island,
the first Methodist missionary 011
the Pacific coast, ln his address
the reverend gentleman touched
on the history ol British Columbia,
more particularly on the coast.
Among the Indians he recited
many interesting and witty experiences. Sir James Douglas,
the governor at that time, the
Hudson Hay Company, the late
John Tod, and other interesting
personages, who figured in the
limelight of history, were mentioned in the speaker's address,
he having been intimately acquainted with their personal traits,
as well as their public careers.
Trips through the Cariboo, over
the old Cariboo trail, Port Hope,
Yale, and other mining camps in
the interior when the mining boon
ol the sixties was in its zenith,
were forcibly eluded lo in Mr.
luii,sun'', own peculiar manner.
At the conclusion ol his address
Dr. Robson was accorded a hearty
vote of thanks by .he Rev. Mr.
Halderston, on behall of the congregation.
Political Issues
Of To-day
The North Vancouver Conscr
vative Association have been particularly lavored in being able to
arrange for an address from Sir
Charles Hibbert Tupper, K. C.
M. (i., V. C. The address will
be given in the Pavilion, 011
Thursday evening, February 27th,
commencing at 8 o'clock, and an
invitation is extended to all to bc
present.
Hesides Sir Charles severa
other prominent Coniervatives are
expected lo be present, who will,
111 all likelihood, have a lew words
to say.
Sir Charles is the prospective
iiiaiiiber lor Halifax, N S., a con
stittiency that some time ago
petitioned Mr. Tupper to accept
theConservative nomination there.
The petition was a handsome token
ol the esteem in which tin ex
minister ol justice is held by Nova
Si ot tans.,unl voices the sentiments
of nearly every body in Halifax
county. Something new in regard to his acceptancy may also be
expected.
The president ol the association,
Mr. A. K. Steacy, will occupy the
chair, lt is expected that a
bumper house will greet the
speaker on this occasion.

Eastern cities have ol late years
been treated by amusement parki
in which could lie found rare in
genuously contrived devices lor
the amusement of the public
Not to be outdone, the Ambitious
City will soon have its Coney
Island, or, more properly, ils
Japanese gardens, for a syndicate,
represented by the Kev. Goro
Kaburagi, has leased live acres,
adjoining the athletic grounds on
Twenty-first street, Irom the B
C. Electric Railway, on which
they will immediately begin operation! in clearing it up preparatory
to erecting a Japanese-fashioned
conservatory, theater, observation
tower and other buildings. Oriental plants and shrubs will be
planted pretniictiously throughout
the grounds, including a large display of chrysanthemums.
It is the syndicate's intention to
put on Japanese shows, such ai
demonstration! of athletic exercises, jiu-jitsu, fencing, boxing,
sword exercises, tumbling and
wire walking. Ancient Japanese
weapons, musical instruments,
agricultural and horticultural im*
pliments, etc., will also be on ex
Illinium in the exhibits building.
Oriental customs will be a
feature ol the gtniiu.lv Tea will
be served in joss houses in real
Japanese style in a typical Osaka
hut. A miniature railway, a Perris
wheel, swings, and many olher
like amusements will be |iroviiled.
At night electric incandescence will
bla/e forth in brilliancy, the
myriads of colored lights trans
lorming the grounds into one vast
resplendent  place of amusement.
It is the intention ol the promoters to have the gardens in
readiness about May 24th next.
As soon as the live acres have
been cleared, Japanese landscape
gardners will bc set to work, and
Japanese carpenters will start
building.
When completed, no doubt thc
gardens will draw large crowd!
from ill parts, as they will be tbe
only ones of id kind thii side ol

Hn above choir will again be
beaid on Wednesday the 2bth in
Larson's Pavilion, ami along with
them conies the wellknown antl
versatile Irish comedian, "Hilly"
Moore, in his Irish Punniosities.
The lornier concert given by this
choir for the Hoard ol Trade was
such a success that a large crowd
sl-..'iilil take advantage of their
second visit to go and hear them.
The concert is under the auspites
of St. John's Episcopal Church.
But for the timely arrival ol the
school janitor on Tuesday, North
Vancouver would today probably
be without a school building.
Luckily the janitor visited the
school in the evening, and on entering thc basement lound smoke
issuing through the door. His
presence ol mind served a good
purpose, and he immediately turn
ed on a stream of water from a hose
connected with a water tap, al
though it was some considerable
time before the fire was extinguished. On examination it was found
that the fire was just getting a good
start, and had eaten through the
floor and burnt leveral joists. Had
another ten minutes elapsed the
flames would have done serious
work. Part of the school hai just
been completed, while the old
school is as dry as tinder, ind
would have been quickly consumed once the lire had a good
start. Thc principal's room was
the most damaged. About fioo
will be required to fix things in
shape again, lt was not lound
necessary to close the schools,
owing to the greater amount ol tin
damage being done in lhe base
ment. The origin of the fire is
laid lo lhe liirnace.
