There in very considerable dissatisfaction at-thc course adopted
by the British Columbia Teh
phone Company regarding tie
tolls it has decided to charge foi
the use of llie telephones with
Vancouver. At the present time,
and for some time to come, tli.
town telephones are really noi
needed, but what is of important'
is the connection with the ciiy.
Two-thirds of the business of tin
place is with Vancouver city, In
these days ol keen competition
people on the other side of the
inlet requiring work will not pay
In talk with North Vancouver,
when they can communicate with
local concerns Iree of charge.
The rates here are $4 a month,
with a rebate of St, and 10 cents
extra for each call with the city,
not exceeding three minutes,
which is practically a prohibitive
tariff. Vancouver business firms
can have the perpetual use of
their 'phones for i\ a mouth, some
of whom take full advantage, and
keep them going practically all
day long.
When the whole thing is carefully considered only one conclusion can be arrived at, and that
is, North Vancouver is discriminated against most unfairly.
A time limit could be given North
Vancouver ami Vancouver free
of charge, over which a lee might
be made, or an all-round 5-cent loll
be made, aud box renl free.
The telephone company has no
agreement with the town regarding
lhe service, inr ilie simple reason
that one is nut necessary. The
legisl iiaire at Victoria gave it the,
right to put up their lines all over
the province, and tochufgo whatever is deemed expi al ent. l'u
the other hand, the town council
h is the power to levy a license
fee or collect taxes. On the 22nd
of December last the nuuiieipal
council passed a resolution to the
effect that llie company be
■exempted of all municipal charges
until iuo subscribers had been
secured. We are informed, up to
Ihe present, that about 25 have
signified their intention to instal
telephone boxes on their premises,
including private and business
When a concession is made to
a company the people should receive some tangible benefit, and il
they do not, the municipality
should be allowed to put in the
local system itself. As a rule. larL'e
corporations do not expect to make
public utilities pay the price of
their plant and dividends from the
start, but are expected to assist to
make the town mow.
The (act of the whole matter is
that the telephone service is controlled by a monopoly whicl
practically adopts a hold-nj
this way and air only using Kaien
island as a blind,
Now, what is there to all this?
The old proverb, "Noise precedes
activities," maybe quite suitably
applied to this case, and we can
only hope that the "noise" will increase in volume, dailv drawing
nearer the climax, imlil Wl wake
up and Iind, some line morning,
ihat the noise uf prognostigation
has been drowned in the din ol
To say ihai North Vancouver
has a future excelled by none and
equalled by few, is not exaggerat-
ing, to say the least, as sooner or
later those excellent harbor facilities will be usurped by great
corporations, and our little city
will then have transformed into a
great metropolis.
Rumors never injure so long as
they are logical.

A mail who bus resided lu Cairo told
this tale as au lllnsirnlioii of Hie dilatory ways of Aral..,ni trades people:
"A certain gentleman ordered a
swing to be erected In bis garden I'or
the use of bis little boy, aged six. Ho
wailed und waited, hut tbo BWlug never arrived, lu due course of time that
boy grew up to man's estate and became himself the father of a little boy.
When his son was six yours old he
remembered bow bis own father had
ordered a swing lo be made for him.
j I So he culled ou the tradesman, who
lived at bis gale, and asked bim to
send up the swim; ihal bad bceu ordered twenty years before. The man
agreed lo do so. The little boy becoming Impatlenl after three weeks,
his father called ngulu und remonstrated with the Arabian as to bis dll-
otorlncss, The Indignant tradesman
replied that he could not really undertake to serve uny oue who was In

A ballad that won Instant fame
against tha expectation Bad even Ibe
wish of Its author was "Anl,1 Itobi-.i
Gray," written by I.udy Anno Lindsay
about tbc end of U» eighteenth century
merely for ber ovvu satisfaction to replace tbe coarse verses of an old melody thut pleased her. She sang charm-
logly, uud the new ballud soon cams
inlo favor. Great was the curiosity
aroused us to tbo author of this pie
tbetie song, In whose simple verses all
tbe elements of u heartrending tragedy
ure contained, but I.udy Anue, modest
mid retiring by nature, preserved silence for muny years, euiiling, no
doubt, at the controversy that raged so
hotly. In the course of It her ballad
was attributed by snnie disputants to
David lilzzlo, declared by others to be
n geuulue sixteenth century production
and tluully made tbe subject of a
twenty guinea prize to he bestowed on
auybody acute enough to bring to light
