A well deserved success was
scored by the North Vancouver
Horticultural Society and Farmers'
Institute,at their annual exhibition
held in the pavilion, Alexandra
gardens, on Saturday last. The
hall presented a very attrai live ap
pSSrSBM witli the various displays
tastefully arranged and occupying
practically the entire lloor span .
The proceedings were opened by
President Alexander Smith who
called the concourse to order, and
requeued Alexander I'hilip to give
the audience information with nf
Sna-M to the societv's condition
and prospects. Mr. I'hilip directed
attention to several ol the more attractive exhibits. He stated that
the building had cost the society
$4500, and there yet remained a
debt of about $900. The member
ship Is about ioo and ought to be
three or four times that number,
Central Park society had a membership of from 300 to 400, and
there was no reason why the membership at Norlh Vancouver should
not be as large, or even larger.
He announced that the directors
had under consideration the holding ol a poultry and pet stock show
during the autumn months, more
definite inhumation regarding
which would probably be given
Thr chairman then called upon
Hon. F. L Carter-Cotton, president ol the provincial executive,
who in a short address commended
the energy which characterized the
conduct ol the affairs ol the society
is evidenced by the great.progress
that had been made, and also complimented them upon what had al-
reailv been accomplished. The
building lie declared was a credit
alike to the soii'ly 1.11I the district. The purposes which the society was organized to promote
were of the greatest importance,
and should enlisi the active co-operation of all. lie made the gratifying announcement that the provincial government had been pleased lo make a grant of $150 toward
thc building luud, which elicited a
round of applause. He then formally declared the exhibition open.
May1 1" lliun. ol Vancom.i.
disclaimed any knowledge ol horticulture, but conveyed the good
wishes ol Vancouver Ciiy upon the
occasion. He congratulated the
ladies on the excellent display
made in the several lines of ladies'
work. He pointed out thc enviable
•ituation of acreage in this district
relative to the unlimited market
offered by Vancouver for all kinds
ol (arm and garden produce, especially cinphasing the lact that
there is a felt need of the products
ol white labor in these lines He
relerred to the fact that the new
market at Vancouver is liberally
patronized by the people, so that
the demand has thus lar proven Iai
in excesi ol the supply. North
Vincouver should make good uie
ol the advantages offered in this

and apologetic. Thr management

Ihe demonstration which it «
peeled would be made by Iln Hut
ilh Canadian Wood Pulp and Paper Company Until the day preceding the exhibition,the company
had given thr directors every reason to believe that the exhibition
would lie made. Imt on endeavoring lo make final arrangements,
they had concluded thai the cost
was prohibitive and had then ton
withdrawn. The live Hock exhibit
was worthy specihl attention.hunt
lhe largest and best that had BVBI
been gathered together in North
Vancouver. The mayor relerred
in pointed terms to the need of a
suitable bridge icrosi the Inlet al
lhc second narrows, to acconimo
date the ever increasing traffic lhat
was bound to develop between thc
Iwo cities and he trusted that within a (ew months such substantial
aid would bc forthcoming (or a
traffic bridge that imistnii liofl
would bc commenced practically
at once.
Votes of thanks were accorded
those who had assisted in making
the exhibition a success.ind 1 In 1 r
were given lor the management,
after which the concourse resumed
the inspection of the exhibits.
Lynn Valley carried off a fair
share of the honors, William Bur-
rell being exceptionally fortunate
in ihis regard.
John I.awson of Capilano,watches the paces of his driver with added intenst since he captured
tii si prize in his class.
Tbe display of pressed flowers
liy the children of the city schools,
and the fancy work by the children
of St. Paul's school, was worthy ol
special mention.
The most notable exhibit was of the Vancouver Milling
company, the Brackman-Ker Milling company and Victoria Cross
lea. The demonstrator did a live
business all the lime.
The display of the Mason and
Risch Piano company was a centre
ol attraction, and the music provided bv the orchestra throughout
the day was one ol the most enjoyable features of the occasion.
The exhibits ol Brown Bros.,
florists, Vancouver, potted plants,
James Simpson, florist, Victoria,
cut flowers, the Vancouver Steam
Dye Works, furs and stuffed ani-1
mals, and the preserved whole
Iruits from the department at Victoria, added very largely to tbe
success ol the exhibition.
A copy ol the Irish Times of
1765 exhibited by Miss Biss, some
clippings ol lace worn by Queen
Victoria at the diamond jubilee exhibited by Mrs. Kadi 1111,11 her. and
one mile ol Coates' linen thread,
(the gilt of a nephew who is an
employee ol the firm) exhibited by
Mrs. Alex. Philip, attracted a good
deal of attention.
Paine and McMillan, thc local
hardware men, provided a very
popular feature in their competitive drawing. The contestants
.wrote their names and addresses
on slips of paper which were deposited in a box, well shaken and
one slip withdrawn. The person
whose name appeared on the slip
received a credit good lor $35, on
tbe purchase of a $65 McClary
"Kootenay Range" if used wilhin
thirty days. The possessor of the
lucky ticket was Stanley McDowell
ol Moodyville.
A. Earle Waghorne sang a solo.
The entire service was characterized by an enthusiasm that was
inspiring, and following a suggestion of Rev. Davis, it is probable
that the veterans will arrange to
hold such services at frequent intervals.
Conservative Convention
Lynn Creek Notes
Residents ol Lynn valley are
indignant at the action of some
miscreant who is destroying the
dogs ol the settlement. Three
have so far been killed, one by
poisoning and the others by shooting. P. Westover is the latest
sulfrrrr, he having had a valuable
collie shot. The dog had bflOB
with thc family (or over BJfhl
yean and was highly prized. Mr.
Westover offers a reward of (1100
for the conviction ol thc culprit.
Thc Lynn Valley Veterans
Association found il necessary to
alter their arrangements with regard lo their picnic on Laboi dai.
on account ol the inclenunl
weather A supper and social entertainment was held in the old
school house. The attendann
comprised iln* number? of tli.*
association and their friends, who
filled the building to its utmost
capacity. The programme was
thoroughly enjoyable, taking the
lorm ol inlormal toasts and short
speeches, followed by songs by
adults, and games lor the younger
portion ol the company.
Thc first annua! parade ol lhe
Veterans' Association of Lynn
Vallev, held on Sunday last, was
eminently successful. The members congregated at lhe new school
house and marched to the church
where special seals had been reserved lor them, lhe remaining
capacity of the building being
overcrowded by residents ol tie
valley in attendance. The sen n ■
opened with the singing ol the appropriate hymn "Onward christian
soldiers," Mr. Underwood, a respected citizen ol the valley, presiding at the organ with gnat
acceptability. Rev. B lledlfl)
Kaldcriton, B.A., and Rev. Davis
gave appropriate addresses, and
The meeting of local Conservatives, held on Tuesday evening,
was well attended and was marked
by harmony and alertness. The

R. H. Duke, A. E.' Crickmay, If.
S. McDowell, A. MacKay Jordan,

Jackson. The whole tenor of the
meeting was that of quiet enthusiasm, with every confidence of

that there are 464 voters on the
North Vancouver list, a good majority of whom are declared Conservative supporters.
The utmost harmony and enthusiasm marked the convention
held in Vancouver, Wednesday
evening. North Vancouver was
honored in the election of Mayor
Kealy to the chair of the convention. The prompt manner in
which preliminaries were disposed
of, shewed that the delegates were
eager for the ballot. Messrs. C.
E. Tisdale, G. H. Cowan and C.
M. Woodworth were duly nominated, and when the ballot was
declared it stood as follows: Number of ballots cast 147, necessary
to a choice 74,for G. H. Cowan 79,
for C. E. Tisdale 58, lor C. M.
Woodworth 9, blank 1. An overwhelming burst ol cheering greeted
the announcement. The North
Vancouver delegation was practically solid for Mr. Cowan. Iln
Conservative party goes to the
electorate with every qualification
that is requisite for success, aud
victory is taken lor granted
throughout the  ranks.
Chesterfield School
We welcome the advent of a
new educational institution in our
midst. Next week, Mr. Scriven,
erstwhile of one of the Vancouvei
colleges, aided by a very efficient
staff, opens at Chesterfield House,
Lonsdale avenue.a day and boarding school for boys. We see he
aims at a very high standard of
mental and physical attainment,
which should result in building up
a character, at once gentlemanly,
tolerant and sell-reliant. In this
age, more than in any, ol varied
in issitude, a man has need of tin-
power ol sell control, and ability
to carry himself well under all conditions, and we are sure the train
ing to be given at (.'In sti-iin Id
house is well fitted to these ends.
The mm denominational character ol thc school will appeal to a
wider circle than would otherwise
be tbe case, hut knowing Mr. St riven as we do, wc leel assured that
the boys will not be allowed tn
grow np rank materialists, but will
be led to see and acknowledge a
I'a,iv. 1 behind all phenomena.
We hope that Mr. Bales, who is
associated with lum in Ins < nl' 1
prise, will develop the s, nnliln
bent of thc hoys, and dull tin in
well in mathematics and natural
science, in which In* himself took
honors and lectured in iln east.
Such training is even more necessary here.on account ol the rapid
material development of tin* pro
vincc, and the steadying hand of a
scientific education is needed to
keep us down to solid facts.
Tlie school will become more
and more of a necessity as every
week sees new families landed on
our shores, and the city daily increasing in population— Cum.
Sons of England
The next meeting ol Western
Kim* lodge, Sons of England, will
In held ill the Eagles' hall, mi

I l.iii,ild and Ellis gave entire satisfaction as rihrasfl, There is good
material iu the local team,and with
practice they should be well up in
the game during the approaching
Lynn Valley Bear Hunt
■ Those residents of Lynn, valley
who have remained skeptical as to
the presence of bears in the valley,
comparatively close in, may have
all their doubts dispelled by viewing the pelt of a cul) stretched to
cure, at the house ol T.Thompson,
on Centre road. Returning early
last week, from a fruitless hunting
expedition to the northwest of thc
Lynn Valley Lumber Company's
mill, Mr. Thompson in company
with D. Turner, was suddenly confronted by a mother bear BttSfldsd
by a cub. The cub immediately
climbed a neighbouring tree. A
charge of buck shot in her face
caused thc  iln 1  Bear to make
off through the woods, followed by
a rifle shot which is said to have
wounded her. The cub was then
shot and brought home, and iln
in It is preserved as a memento ol
the adventure.
