Secretary W. J. Irwin of the
Hoard of Trade seconds the motion to give the municipal hall a
coat of white paint. It's up to
council to call for the question.
An unsuccessful attempt was
recently made to supply the horticultural park with water by extending the pipe line up Lonsdale
avenue, past Twenty-fust street.
After the laying of the pipe, some
bad leaks developed with thc
result that the supply and pressure
at the outlet were almost reduced
to a vanishing point. Why is it,
that in a small job ol this character,
the work cannot bedone efficiently?
What was the cause of the leaks?
Was it due to poor pipe or
inefficiency iu the municipality's
servants in laying the pipe? This
matter -.hould he  enquired   into
streams will provide a constant
source of pleasure to the traveller
and it remains lor the residents of
North Vancouver to supplement
these natural wonders with streets
made inviting with boulevardes
and shade trees, and parks laid
out in accordance with the best
landscape effects. The speedway
of Queensberry avenue should
only be a beginning in the direction
of providing good roads to all the
attractive points in the district.
Then there is music. Vancouver
with its 55,000 people can not
boast of a band worth its pretensions. It will be a difficult
task for Nortli Vancouver to support a good band at the present
stage of its growth, but it should
not be forgotten that a good band,
stationed in North Vancouver,
could depend on playing to large
audiences, mostly recruited Irom
the other side of the inlet.

lt is wisdom to profit by the
shortsightedness, omission or
mistake ol others. Vancouver,
■Willi all its great advantages, has
■done comparatively little to attract
the tourists who aru annually
coming in increasing numbers toj

English bay beach are insur-
passable resorts, but with these

close attention to this business.
lend    the    best    support    and
encouragement to all methods
calculated to make North Van
r the ereatest tourist resort
The incessant rains of Wednesday and Thursday last wrought
havoc in the Sipiamish, Capilano
and Lynn Valleys. In the
latter thc sudden rise in the
creek, from which is derived the water supply of North
Vancouver, the rain was particularly heavy, amounting almost
to a cloudburst. About nine
o'clock Wednesday morning Lynn
creek began rising at an alarming
rate, and by noon had risen over
ten feet above normal. Those
viewing this raging, seething
torrent from the intake say the
scene was beyond description.
Great boulders, that had rested
serenely in the river bed for years,
were suddenly, hurled down the
rushing waters, thundering as they
came in contact with other large
stones. Debris of every description,
necessary, by the caretaker standing on a plank and
with an iron rake.
Mr.   Balmain    suggests   that
an   abutment    be    '  ill    tn n
the bedrock on die north
side of the intake pipe,
across the latter, parallel with the
stream, for approximately 100 feet,
thence across the end about 50
feet, thus forming a reservoir
shaped like an L and encircling the
pipe. At the greatest height, this
wall would be about 15 feet, and
four feet thick, sloping off to a
point at the northern extremity.
In the wall across the lower end
would be placed a pipe to admit
water to the reservoir, having, at
a convenient place, appliances for
preventing dirt from entering the
pipe, and which could at all times
be cleaned.
Owing to the intake pipe being
five inches above low water level of
stream it will be necessary to replace the dam lately carried away.
This would extend across the
stream 30 feet, and need only be of
such height as to permit of six
inches of water above pipe.
Another perplexing matter, and , 1
one that will cause no end of annoyance, is the position of the
waterman) at the large hill a few
hundred yards this side of the intake.   A year ago

How can North Vancouver improve on Vancouver's mistake?
Primarily, by supplying attractions
and amusements. Parks, boulevardes, recreation grounds and
shady groves should be provided,

The regular meeting of the
license commission convened in

afternoon, Present: Reeve Kealy,
Councillor Allen, E. 0. Wicken-

Mr. Bird, representing Lorenza
Reda, reported progress on the
hotel building, and stated that the
premises would be completed in
about three weeks. The commission decided to grant a license
10 Mr. Reda upon the completion
of the building, as he had, so lar,
secured thc proper number of
signatures. Mr. Wickenden was
appointed to inspect the premises
when completed.
The application of Wm. P.
Hogg lor an hotel license for the
premises situated on the south
side of the Esplanade,  in block
165, was not considered by the
board, as the proper number of
signatures had not been secured.

Planted by the flood, about fom

intake, was a boulder weighing
several tons, which must be removed, along with the sand befori

The dam erected just below the
intake pipe was also carried away,
not even a support being lelt.
When visited by lhe city engineei
and THE EXPRESS representative,
the intake waa in a sorry plight-
[vain was still decending in
torrents, and there were no signs
of the swollen stream abating. Ir
the meantime the waterniains
were without water. There was
absolutely no means of remedying
the break until the water subsided
to its usual stage. The pipe was
tapped at a small stream flowing
neareby, which Served its purpose

plentiful supply in all the pipes.
The position ol
lepth of ten feet will slide, and
unless the pipe was placed beyond
this sliding mud, thare is practically no hope ol escaping tlie in-
•vitahle slide.
To guard against shortage in
.vater, owing to accidents, etc., a
reseovoir will be necessary, carrying, at least, three day's supply,
which could be placed in a good
position and also ensure a (joud
pressure to every consumer.
A Strange Disappearance.
Almost two weeks have elapsed
since Mr. Malcolm Martin disappeared Irom  his home and no

is such as to be easily repaired
at     small     cost.     Where     the
pipe is laid into the river bed is a
concrete dam, built for the purpose
ol backing the. water from the pipe
running to   the   settling   tanks.
This dam is al-out ten  feet long
and six deep, which was the oul)
precaution taken for its protection.
From this dam thc pipe was laid
out into the creek resting about
five inches above the low water.
In order to ensure the necessary
quantity,    a     30-foot     wooden
dam   was   constructed   just   below the intake pipe.    On either
side of the latter bedrock extended
out for a lew feet past (he end ol
the pipe, which was the only protection    allorded.    As    a     preventative against dirt entering the
pipe a crude contrivance of wire
netting   was    used.   This    was
, hauled   up   aud   cleaned   when
ir'a'ce whatever has been found of
him. All day Surtday a large part}

an untiring search has been kept
up, but as yet not lhe slightest

general supposition is that, in the
darkness he slipped off the float at
his boatworks and was drowned

September, al about B130 o'clock

of the Birkenhead.
Thn stirring Incidents which attended the loss of tin- Birkenhead many
years ago are recalled In a striking
manner by the splendid discipline
recently shown hy a hundred Warsplta
boys In the face of danger of the gravest character.
The training-ship lads were on the
four-masted vessel Port Jackson, and
were being taken on a cruise to Australia, with a view to giving them a
practical training for the mercantile
marine, The Port Jackson had been
towed round from London to the Channel, and cast on* the tug after passing
through the Slr.ilis of Dover Winn
near Beaohy Head, a sudden fog developed, and lhe sailing ship proceeded
With great caution down channel,
Presently a big steamer, win, !i afterwards provod to h,- i'n- Hamburg steamer Pyrgos, of the German Levant Line,
loomed up right In front et the Port
Jackson. The fog had prevented Hie
steamer being seen until ihe was practically in touch wilh tlie training ship
livery effort was made to avoid a collision, but the Bteamcr crashed inlo the
1' irt Jackson's starla,,ard bow. The Impact was terrific, shaking the ship from
end to end, while the iron plates were
ripped through as though ihey were
Tin? captain, with great coolness, gave
orders for lhe Warsplte boys to be mustered on deck In case of disaster, whilst
the crew were told oil to make arrangements for lowering the boats ond getting out life-saving appliances, etc. The
hundred young lads wire very promptly mustered, nnd were formed up on the
olllcers' Instrnctl >ns, and stood to at-
tentlon awaiting the next orders of the
captain. Happily, disastir was averted,
and Iho sailing vessel was towed round
to Dover In safety.
The chaplain and doctor of the Tort
Jackson said tt was a wonderful light
to see the lads coolly parading In the
face of possible disaster, as no one knew
umll an examination had been made
what wns the extent of the damage
that had been sustained In the collision.
Mr. West, of Our Navy, who was on

A correspondent of the London Times
who accompanied the grand himn of

thus describes the feasting in lhe lama's
palace lu honor of the occasion]
"Proceedings began with what had
nil the appearance of a blessing, except thnt each person brought n present, which the lamn touched nnd nn nt-
tondtiut took possession of. The presents consisted of sliver shoes worth
about $*i0, vessels of various precious
metuls, rolls of silk, cloth nnd similar
articles. When ull Ibe gifts had heen
bunded over the Inevitable tea was
brought In. The hmni had ;.i huge golden pot, studded with turquoises, nil to
himself. Attendants passed nniung the
seated lunias und Ailed the wooden
cups which tbo lilt tor produced from
the bosoms of their capacious robes.
Tor us four there were n spcclnl lenpot
and Chinese bowls. Hut as for drink-
lug, wo knew better. We tool: a blow
at the surface to slide the rancid butter off the top, nuido .1 sucking noise
with our mouths und then handed bnck
Hie cups, sufficiently nauseated, without drinking, by thc smell of the tea
nlone. Next cnnio tlio distribution of
tbe fruit nnd sweetmeats, of which wo
received nn ample share.
"Then the great doors of the hall
were thrown open nnd there poured In
a horde of struggling Immunity that
rushed nt great stacks of Tibetan brend
n crisp, brown substance, fried in
butter nnd very palatable In n cold
climate. Tbe brend wns on tables In
broad piles six feet high. With desperate fury the poor of the city fell on
this provision of the gods und crammed
the brittle stacks into sacks nnd bosoms, punching their receptacles when

Mohammedans divide themselves Into
two principal sects-Shlah and Suuui,
tbe Persians representing the bulk of

The chief points on which they differ
sre the condition of tbe soul after
death and the succession of caliphs.
"The Sunnl belief Is that there Is one
Immortal God, whose works sre without beginning or cud, and that lie will
