and St  David's Avenue.
The mayor reported the sale of
an additional lio,000 ol the city

sitiifiction of both parties, and
matten are now in first class shape.
It was moved by Aid. Wheeler,

inu*, the fall in 3rd street was so
slight as to be practically bench
grade of St. George's avenue. The
mayor recalled die fact that council
had passed a resolution governing
(he grades anil called for the reading of the same. The motion read
(hat where the various permanent
grades are to be laid on the streets,
a straight grade shall be laid as
(ollows: On Mahon and Sl. David's
avenues, from (lie north side of ist
street lo Keith road on St. Patrick's
avenue, from the north side of ist
streri, 10 4th street and on Chester*
field, Lonsdale, St. George's and
St. Andrew's avenues, from the
north side of ist street to the north
side of 8th street. In consiiltauon
with council on the malter,lhe city
engineer stated that plans had
been submitted to council and
passed, showing grades as they
are now being constructed.
The mayor read a further resolution of council, it which it was
ordered that plans and profiles in
iihai li grades are established shall
be drawn in triplicate, each copy
(0 be signed by the mayor, the
clerk and the council and the corporate seal attached. One copy
was lo be deposited in the registry office, one copy to be deposited in the vault at the city hall, and
one copy to be used for reference.
The plans and profiles at present
being used for 3rd street were produced ami it was found that they
were not signed nor sealed and
that only one copy had been made,
llie mayor staled (hat the matter
was of 1 serious niture and that il
placed Ibe council in lhe position
of passing resolutions only to find
that they were not observed in
actual operations. Proper methods
hid been followed with relerence
to Lonsdale avenue and ist street,
but in this instance this was not
(he case. The mailer was referred to thc board of works, to bring
in recommendations.
Liberal Meeting
Last night the Liberals held a
meeting iu the public lull,at Lynn
creek, the hall being filled wilh the
residents of lhe valley. J. Y. McNaught acted as chairman and
gave a lew opening remarks. He
was ftillnwed by Alex. Philip, who
made an excellent speech. W.W.
B. Mclnnes, the Liberal nominee,
followed,and spoke at length upon
the issues ol the day, referring
particularly to the Asiatic question.
Mr. Mclnnes closed his addicss
with a timely reference to the
growing importance of the district,
and spoke of its possibilities and
needs. He stated he would do all
he could to obtain government
assistance in developing the district In reply to a question asked
ol Mr. Mclnnes, as to the policy
ol the Laurier government relative
to establishing separate or national
schools, lie replied that separate
schools was a Tory measure, introduced for Manitoba's benefit in
1896. They had been defeated on
that question and the Liberals
elected. As lor British Columbia,
the system here must remain (or
national schools, as guaranteed by
confederation. Joe Martin knew
this and it was idle for him to
speak otherwise. Kven if they
would, the Liberals could not give
separate schools in (his province.
This statement of the Lauiier
government's school po'icy was
received with applause. The
meeting was a good one and tbe
audience quite attentive.
Guiseppe Batistoni, Antonio Borio,
and Agostino Golla. The floral
tokens of sympathy were numerous
and beautiful, comprising (he following amongst others: Mr. and
Mrs. Branca, cross ; Henry and
Mrs. Eves, wreath ; S. M. S. F.
D'ltalia, hearl; Y. Meuchse, cross;
Charles and Louis Reda, spray ;
Mrs. Reda and Mrs. Andruss,
heart ; Mrs. Sargent, spray ; Foi*
cisini Ensgnio,wreath; Mrs. Filion
sprav. The circumstances of the
lad's death are rendered additionally pathetic from the fact that Mr.
Branca has been in Europe for
sometime past and was in Paris,
France, when the sad intelligence
reached him. He is now on the
homeward journey.
St. John's Church
It is quite safe to say that the
congregations attending the harvest thanksgiving services, in St.
John's church, last Sunday, were
the largest in the history of the
parish. In the evening especially
scaling capacity was taxed to the
utmost, and though the aisles were
filled with chairs, it was still impossible to find room for all who
desired to enter.
The church was beautifully decorated with a prolusion ol Iruits,
flowers and vegetables—thankof-
ferings   which   bore  eloquent,  il
engineer, coming down Lonsdale
avenue a little before nine o'clock
yesterday morning, was astonished
to notice a black bear, about a
year old, making his way up the
hill through the gardens on Ihe
west side of the avenue. A lady,
engaged in tethering a cow in the
vicinity, evidently received a considerable fright from the bear. The
animal leisurely entered a clump
of bush on the northern border of
the gardens and disappeared.
Burglars at Work
Burglars paid a visit to tin* pre
mises of A. J. Picton Warlow, on
Friday night last. Mr. Warlow
closed his place of business at the
usual hour and saw all in proper
shape for the night. On coming
down the next morning he discovered that the stock had been rifled.
Upon examination he found thai
the thieves had stolen five or six
hundred of the best brand of cigars
together with a supply of confectionery. Entrance was effected
by forcing open a back window.

The death occurred on Sunday
night last, of Joseph, eldest son of

of len years. The lad had bflflfl
ill for upwards of a month,ol what
ultimately developed into typhoid
lever. The funeral took place on
Monday, proceeding fust to the
church of the. Holy Rosarv, Vancouver, where a service was held
and from wlnnie a very large cortege ol sympathizing friends proceeded to the cemetery, where (he
interment look place. The pall
bearen    were   Luigi   Batistoni,
silent, testimony to tbe abundance
of the harvest with which the country has been blessed. The music
at St. John's, which has been
steadily improving, was on this occasion exceptionally good, proving
that both choir and choirmaster
have given to this part ol the public worship of thc church that
painstaking care and attention
which its importance dcmands.and
tint no pains have been spared to
make it what it should be: 1 real
"sacrifice of praise," an offering of
the best results of earnest and intelligent effort.

Mis. Wilson, district president ol

cull's plans for the "local option"
campaign.
>.iiisl,utory plans were drawn
up for the medal contest, to be
held in (he Horticultural hall Oct.
15th, to start punctually ten min
utet belore n p.m. His nrenhip
Mayor Keal\ will occupy the chair.
An excellent musical programme
lias been provided. Three ol the

wen tested lhat had some error of
refraction, many cases of which
can be overcome by accommodation without glasses and not cause
inconvenience. In others the same
imount of error would cause head-
.iches.iit ivousiiess,iiiat(entiveiU'SS,
even amounting to dullness, etc.
About seven per cent of the total
had errors that should be corrected
with glasses at once, and three per
cent that should not be allowed to
study until they have glasses properly fitted. The school-rooms, 1
find, are so arranged as to get the
light to the best possible advantage."
Lynn Creek Notes
The supply of free text hooks,
etc., for Lynn valley and Capilano
schools came to hand last week.
K. Magennis has laid upon ye
editor's table an exceptionally line
■ample of potatoes, grown in Lynn
valley. The potatoes are ol the
DlllOtl Ked ami the Hut bank Set tiling varieties. They will measure
about 8x16 inches in size antl are
of excellent quality. They were
grown on the ranch of Mr. Good-
all, in tbe upper portion ol Ihe valley, no fertilizer whatever having
been put in the ground.
A movement is on foot to have
the board of school trustees make
over the old schoolhouse tor the
benefit ot the residents of the valley, lt is proposed by Councillor
McNaught dial a society be formed, umler the benevolent societies
act, and that the building be regularly conveyed to them. The purpose is to make use of the building as a reatling room, amusement
hall, etc. Advantage will probably
he taken of (he governmental circulating library; a debating club
will be formed and the society will
endeavor in every way to promote
the social lile ol the community,
The trustees were approached in
the matter, at a meeting held on
Thursday evening last and the
proposition was accorded favorable
consideration.

The United lirotherhood of Carpenters & joiners have established

Prevention of Forest Fires
The following data, furnished by
the Canadian Forestry Associa-
tii'ii, places additional emphflil
on the value of an effective patrol
lor thfl prevention  of  forest tires.
Five dollars per acre is the minimum price given by lorestry experts for forest tree planting; and
the price ranges Irom this up to
Jin and more.
When the lower figure is taken
as the basis of calculation, (he
planting ol one lOJMIfl mile Will
cost J3.100; to plant ten square
miles will cost $32,000, and the
planting up of a township six miles
square (area, 3(1 square miles) will
require thi expenditure ol 1(115,-
aoo. Such figures are apt to make
one itop and think before advocating extensive planting.
The cost to the Dominion government of patrolling the railway
belt iu Hritish Columbia during
the last fiscal year (April 1st, 1907,
to March 31st, hjoS) amounted to
f14.n1.64. The area ol the railway belt is a little over ten million
acres. The cost, then, ol patrolling this trict was less than t'/i
mills per acre, or about 90 cents
per square mile. No fire of any
magnitude wa; reported during
the year. The railway belt is exceptionally well guarded, but even
with the cost several times what it
is, tbe expense is well worth while,
considering the value of the mature
timber aud young growth thus
lived.

A viliietl lubtcriber, writing to
The Hvi'KKss, says;
"May I congratulate you on your
article of two weeks ago, on the
Second Narrows bridge and the
necessity of i provincial government subsidy towards it? It is
most important that this matter
should be kept before the people
aud pressed upon the provincial
government from uow until the
next session of the provincial legislature. The Dominion govern-1 w,
ment, at Ottawa, have done the
right thing in tins matter at any
rate, in granting l subsidy towards
a rulroitl bridgeIIirofll the S .ond
Narrows, lt is up to thfl piovin
cial government to grant a similar
subsidy towards miking iti combined railroad ind traitic bridge.
Thfl CUM "I the Westminstei
bridge tines not apply here. In
that case the Dominion govern
ment did not lubflidiifltbe bridge,
because it WU built and owned by
the provincial government. But
in the case ol the Second Narrows
