Tu tlie Editor nf Tim Exi'iiass:
Sir. Il was with regret that 1
learned of the aclious of the municipal council on Monday night.
The council called for applications
lor the position of constable for
the district. Although 1 was not
an applicant, yet in the best
interests ol our town I certainly
expected that one ol our own
t iwnsnieii would have been chosen
or selected for ibis position, as
with all other work or services nil
things being equal, om local
citizens should Im the lirsl ones
considered The gentlemen selected by the  "committee  nl  ihe
whole" no doubt are honorable
men, but insl lhe same may be
said of local applicants lor this or
any nilid' position, or even tender
tm public work. For heaven's
Sake, do not place outsiders in
positions that North Vancoiiverites
can till themselves. In other
words patronize and help the
people ol our own town belore all
others, Tin Express, as we
have read, advocates home industry and local enterprise, and
why should not our municipal
council give consideration to our
own citizens and ratepayers before
going elsewhere lur people lu do
our own work. 1 hanking you, Mt.
Editor, for the space accorded, 1
remain faithfully yours,

Tn lim Editor of Tur, Kxi'iikhk:
My dear Public Benefactor,—In ; .-{J
a recent issue ol your hi nie-grow n
production I notice thai you compare youi delightful ainl youthful
ciiy with Lucerne in Switzerland,
There is quite   a   diffi.-ri.-ncu   between the  twin  cities,   Lucerne
has 32,000 people, and 100 hotels,
but  no   Pete   Larson.   111   that
mountain town every devii e know
that will extract gold from .1 lonri 1
is used ni such an advantage thai
the population easily live twelve
mouths upon lhe profits ol .1 five
months'    season.     Real    estate
agents are jusi dim memories in
Lucerne, while in North Vancouver tbey -eiin to Im the prim ipal
attraction    Iur    visitors.   North
Vancouver uill never be a Lucerne,
although ils citizens have 11 scheme
to  make  it  a ureal  resort   foi
tourists by developing the attrac
lions on the mountains hack nl llie
city,    I know  ol   lew  more  ideal
spots, willi its justapositioii to the
promising  ciiy  across  llie   saline
aqua than your beautilul new city
Inl a tourist and residential centre.
I infill just throw in, as ii reminder ol other days, that New
Denver, away up in the Slocan,
resembles more closely Lucerne
than anv otbel spot in America.
