Wlm will second tlie motion to
give the municipal hall a coat of
white paint?
lt was owing ill a great measure
to the very efficient tramway and
ferry services on Labor day that
the third annual horticultural show
was such a big, success.
The  municipal  council met in
egular session Wednesday even
What higher compliment could
be paid to Nortli Vancouver than
that which Aid. lletlnine made at
the banquet on Monday night?
He announced for the lirst lime
liis decision to be a candidate in
the mayoralty race next January in
Vancouver. Here's success to
you, Mr. Mayor to be.
The council will have tlic
cordial support of the ratepayers
in passing a by-law to regulate the
electric wiring of buildings, lt
bas been pointed out that electrical
fixings, which could not lie used at
Vancouver have been brought
over here and installed. When
the ordinance is passed this danger
ous praclice will be done away!
Willi.        '
Two very noticeable features ol
Monday night's gathering was the
perfect harmony and good feeling
thai existed  between llie ollicials
ol     llritisli     Columbia's     greal
corporation and the municipality,
and the confidence that was su
evident throughout the remarks   '
the evening.    In replying to the
toast ol ibe  "Railway   Service,'
General   Superintendent    Milnt
c usually  referred to three  verj
important factots in the progress
ol North Vancouver: the efficiency
•of the system in the near future hr
.said would be on a par wilh  the
most up-to-date lines; the branch
extending up tlie Capilano would,
within a reasonable tunc,  be an
accomplished   fact;   the   sincere
mutual    understanding    existing
between the corporation and the
company,  as an augury  ol   the
prosperity and material assistance
in st'ire for the   future   ol   the
Ambitious City.
Nurtli Vancouver lias arrived at
the stage where push and energy
will be needed to form one of the
leading spirits in her ascendency.
Men who will nol lie lound  wanting in cither ambition or discretion.
As matters stand today we have
both.  The B. C. Electric Railway
Company have shown,  by   their
wisdom,  that they are in   every
sense of tbe word aiming to build
up North Vancouver and make it
a city second to  none   in   this
province.    It is now up to   the
residents and business men to put
their shoulders to lhc wheel and
push our rapidly-growing city up
another rung  in   the   ladder  of
The Inlet and the Rain.
The inlet yesterday was as
muddy in appearance as the Fraser
river, caused by the heavy rains.
The fresh water streams became
very low during the dry weather,
and, as a consequence, the dried
sand and fallen timber on the
banks came down in abundance
with the flood. Also, logs and
brush coming down the I't'ascr
river to English bay, came in
through the First narrows with
the tide. Together wilh tlie waste
timber from the mills hundreds of
cords of wood were aboat. This
is a distinct danger to the craft o'
tlic harbor, especially at night.

Councillors May and Cornish
Communications were dealt with
as under:
'he poundkeeper reported that
six cattle had been impounded end
$to in fees collected during August.    Filed.
J, Lawson wrote asking that the
Keilh road, west of tlie Capilano,
be cleared.   Board of Works.
James Murray complained of an
oflcnsive smelling drain near his
place on the Esplanade.    Board of
Tbe clerk reported that be had
received from the ferry company
three policies of insurance on the
steamer North Vancouver, aggregating only J7,ooo. Clerk instructed to ask for information as the
agreement called for $10,000.
T. S. Nye suggested ihat the
council lease lots (i, H and J, in

of Works and Engineer Balmain
to report.
Engineer Balmain reported re
Seymour creek bridge, and suggested that Mr. Tytler be asked
to submit plans for a new one and
indicate a site (or ils erection. Referred to Board of Works.
James Millie, general superintendent of tlie li. C. Electric Kail-
way Company, wrote in reference
tu tlie wiring of houses in Nurlli
Vancouver, After a lenghty discussion the council decided to pie-
pare a by-law to regulate the wiring of buildings.
The reeve reported that be had
appointed Mr.  Bisinman watt,
works foreman temporarily,   His
..c'.ioti was approved, and instructions given to advertise for a new
waterworks foreman.
Reeve Kealy and Councillor Cornish were appointed to interview
President Hendry of the V., W. &
Y. regarding the proposed bridge
across the Second narrows.
W.   T.   Stein   was   appointed |
auditor of the municipality for the
The reeve reported that  Solicitor Taylor and he had  taken  up
tlie question of the sub-division of
district lot 265 by the Lonsdale
estate before Mr. Justice Irving on ,
Friday last, and he bad held that '■
they could sub-divide down to ihe
waterfront and throw the roads in,
In llie solicitor it did  not seem
llial this judgment was in accordance with bis interpretation of the
land registry act passed at the last
session,  which required  that   all
property sub-divided  must show
roads every boo feel leading to the
waterfront,   Taking the solicitor's
advice lhe reeve was ol lhe opinion
ihat they sliould appeal to the full
court,   The   appeal   would   nut I
cost more than $250, and if they I
could get judgment in their favor
it would mean the saving of many
thousands oi dollars to the municipality in future, since roads to the
waterfront   would   liave   to    be
ixpropriated at great cost,   Mr,
justice Irving's judgment was that
since the map ol the sub-division
did not show roads the   owners
were not compelled to leave them.
On motion of Councillors Cornish j
and May the reeve was empowered |
to take proceedings for appeal,     I

A Big Success—The Opening—Prize Winners.
The third annual exhibition of
thc N irtb Van ouver Horticultural
A ■ aOciati' 11, , .'icli m held Oll
Monday in the Alexander park,
was a greater success than heretofore, boili in exhibits and attendance, From the time of opening until the end of the (lay there
was a continual stream oi people,
and every car both coming and
going was Idled to overflowing.
Mr. R, (i. Macpherson, M. P.,
on opening tbe exhibition to the
public, iu a brilliant speech,
complimented the association and
its officers on their success, and
also tlie people of North Vancouver on lhe great progress being,
made both as regards the town
and its products,
On entering the large tent containing the exhibits one was
astonished at tile neatness and
good judgment exercised in the
choice aud placing of the exhibits.
On cither side of the isle running
around the inside of the enclosure,
were tables covered with homegrown vegetables, fruits, honey,
etc., and many novel varieties of
fancy work and cushions, lt is,
indeed, hard to place so much in
an enclosure the size of the tent
Vised without conjeslion, but Monday's display was totally devoid of
any over crowding. The adaptability of those having this part of
•ie work in hand was fully
appreciated by the great interest
shown and llie words ol admiration
that was everywhere evident.
lt would be  indeed  difficult to
point out any exhibit^ that   was
deserving ol   more   praise   than
another.  Councillor May's lucious-
looking fruit elided tbe attention
of all, as did also the exhibits of
Reeve and Mrs. Kealy,  Mr.  and
Mrs C. E. Keene, and Mr.  and
Mrs. J. J. Woods, Mr. Scbultz and
ithers,    The large display ol Mr.
Keene was very noticeable,   lhe
-lock ol plums and   vegetables,
and also live slock   being   con-j
-picious  lor   their   many   white
tickets.    Tlie   apiary    of     Mrs.
Kealy was awardrd first,  after a
most difficult task on  the | art of
lhe judges.    The fancy work was
perfection in itself,  and to those
that appreciatedcrazy work,  this
display was particularly creditable,
Mr.  Alex.  Gibson captured lirst

A denial of the fact that A. D.
Nye did great work as director is
out ol the question. He was nigh
unto the work all the time, and it
is a pity that his self-sacrificing
devotion to other people's inteiests
sliould bave been rewarded by
having all bis exhibits stolen.
Tbe thief deserves the direst
penalty, especially when it is
known that Mr. Nye intended to
present the fruit to the editor of

of the people, The Express hopes
that vengeance (or this outrage
will not be I). Nyed.
The municipal treasurer was
another bard working director, lt
was wonderful how many people

Tho Squawman's Diamonds.
A  decadn ot years or so ago.  Dr.

vey, stari laid Canada by a declaration I
of his belief that Canada possessed In \
Northern  unLarlo   a   vast   deposit   of
diamonds which would put Johanna. •
burg In the dark.   He wja laughed sl j
then, but lime has proved his vindicator,   Port lYoni-ea sends tills story as
proof thereof:
Ono day a thirsty French-Canadian
squaw man namo La Kebre. camo to
ltalny Lake (nun '.he Selno district. On
his gaudy brass watch chain hung a
sparkling sinno which he bad made
into a charm by twisting soma, wire
around It. 11* ran into a pnispectnr
named Hopes In the bar room of the
hotel of the camp, and with ugly de-
meaner demanded that Ropes buy hltn
a drink.
The old prospector's eyes had caught
sight of tho at'ine dangling from '.he
'inaw man's chain and another glance
was sufllcient.
That's i pret'y piece of quart!
you've got there," r"markisl Ropes
quietly. "It you'.I givo It to mo PII

The man glowered at the prespecttr

stone from Its setting anal snapped II
over to his companion with a load
"liy gar, I guess youse want It worae

served In the case of .somnolently lazy
pusnl.% is often the result, naturalists ■
say, of a juicy rat In kitty's digestive

the Ll11lo rodent simply with an eye

give place, for the present) to Borne
warping of the mother Instinct, so
strung in all an.mats, which has Included a very lively little rat in the
comradeship of five very black and, aa
yet, helpless klttrna.
When a p illcoman at the corner of
Kins and Yonge streets handed a
young tat to Mr. Joe Wilson, of
MiehJe's, a few days ago. he did not
know that ho wns starting a romance
In animal life, which may end In a
trag-'dy Boon. Mr, Wilson, mindful of
a cat at the store whloh had become
the mother of five kittens, as black
us herself, took thn gift In good part,
11* duly pn'scntid the rat lo Mrs.
Tli ore are no nerds extant relating
to the s!<v?o of Paris which give the
opinion of the rat-raters of that period
as to the comparative Juicyness of
ymng and old rats. It would naturally
be thought that a rat so young and tender as the one which Mr. Wilson banded to the cat would be a morsel particularly tempting to anything with an
appetite for Mus Decumanus, which li
what the scientists say.
The cat received the rat without the
usual licking   >f lips, In fact it slob-,
bep'd the youngster over, as If II was
IU own offspring, which found no trouble In making room  for their    much
smaller comrade.  Tho rat, f >r Its part,
not having learned tho A II C of life |
from Its people at home, snuggled down
eomforta-bly In Its new nest, and partook of the same refreshment as was,
afforded the little black kittens.
It has been wisely said that parental
favoritism Is the ruination of many a
homo. Among animals, though, the mother Is often observed to deal most.
kindly with her weakest offspring,
and to take especial precautions to
guard It from dancer, This may ex-
plain why the tabby nt Michle's apparently regards the rat as the darling
of her heart. Cats do not approve of the
t io frequent visits of blundering humans to their homes, and Mrs. Tabby
has shown her disapproval of this by
moving her family three times. Her
favoritism towards the rat, which she
evidently thinks her smallest and weakest charge, was noticed the first time
she moved. She was noticed by M*\;
Wilson running off to the coal bin with
the rat In ber mouth. "Now," said he,
••It's all up with the mt." Ho was!
wrong. She was merely moving It be-1
fore she moved the other occupants of
her first home. She foil >wed with them,
.»ne by one, and set up housekeeping1
In the coal bin.
It must have been a veritable feline
San Francisco, and the cat soon moved
— this time to a b *x.
Men prominent In the study of animal
life s.iy that there Is no other case on
record of the kind. Some of them, in
fact, laughed Incredulously when the
Incident was mentioned to them.
It will be Interesting to learn what
happens to tho little fellow, if It Is
wise, It will hie away to other haunts
BJ S'>on as nature will permit. If It
elects lo remain with Us fo.ster family
there Is Ilkoly to be a catastrophe soon,
The kittens will ba weaned, and It is
i good guess that some day they too
Will bSSUme that look of utter happiness
which oomes to their kind after a good
and Juicy meal. A'hen that happens,
Mr. IUL will have mysteri msly vanished—into thin air, It might be said; but,
better, into thin cat.

One of tho signs of the day Is the revival of the oid-tlme demand for the
Bible, us an adjunct to tho hotel bedroom. Ten or toweJve ye.us ago every

a Bible on Its bureau. Thtn It was
the practice of most hotels to Include a itibie in tho list of necessary
furniture. Gradually the peophi who
were back of the enterprise lost interest and the books disappeared.  It now
seems that many persons, particularly
commereiaJ travelers, complain of missing them. Frequently they read a chapter before going lo bed Just to drive
