Aids. Dick, Irwin, Smith and
Crickmay have intimated their
willingness to again seek political
honors lor the present year.
Ex-constable Tarn and his
brother Frad have tsken over the
blacksmithing business on First
street, carried on by Jas. Yates
These yonng men are well and
favorably known, and Thi Express
wishes theni every success in their
new venture. It may be added
that Robt. Tarn managed the
business before, and, therefore, is
perlectly posted in the standing
and prospects of the business.
The members and Iriends of the*
Young People's Club spent a most
enjoyable social and musical evening in St. Andrew's church on
Tuesday evening last, what with
vocal and instrumental music oi
high quality, recitations, readings
and games, and a first-class tea
served in the interval by the young
ladies of the club. A first-rate
entertainment wai afforded to
all who were present. Next
Tuesday evening the members of
the club will he called upon to
carry through a mock civic election, candidates having already
been nominated for the offices of
mayor and aldermen, and a poll
becomes necessary in both instances. Candidates will be asked
to air their views and future tactics
in the event of their being elected
to office. Much interest and instruction is expected to be gained
at the meeting.
Alex. McLaren, deputy fruit inspector, paid the city and district
a visit last week, ln talking to
Thi Expriss he said that he was
highly pleased with the many fine
specimens of fruit trees he came
across during his inspection. The
new trees were very clean, but the
old ones, however, were in some
cases dirty and effected with the
San Jose scale. Inspector McLaren also spoke in glowing terms
of the landscape. In all his
travels in the province he saw no
more admirable spot for fruitgrowing and gardening. He
thought that there could be a
large addition of flowers and
shrubs, which would certainly
beautify the residences. For instance : He did not come across
any Laurstcin, an everbloom,
similar to the holly. It blooms in
September and all winter. Asked
as to how the Indian reserves
were being cultivated, he replied
that they were under the control
of the federal government, which
should assist the Indians in teaching them how to take care of their
trees, some of which were very
fine ones. Mr. McLaren left for
the Kamloops experimental farm
which will be run in connection
with the old men's home.
The repairing of the pipe line is
about completed, and in future
precautions will be taken to keep
il in good condition,

Much interest has been centered
of late on the plebiscite   to  be
taken on the 16th  regarding the
purchase  of   the   ferry   system.
Owing to -the hithertofore meager
details as to Ihe, earning powers,
many  were   disposed   to   doubt
the advisability of its purchase.
The ferry company at its annual
meeting on Wednesday gave out
the lollowing statement as com-
parision for the  year   1906  and
In   1906   the   gross   receipts
were S}5,974 54- expenses I35,.
671.39, leaving a net gain of
I303.15. For the year just
closed the total receipts were
JS53.124.79, as against an expenditure of H35.560.72, and
leaving a net gain for the
year of (17,564.07.
On an investment of (125,000 it
will readily be seen that ths net
gain foe the year means practically
ten per cent, enough in itself to
justify any expense incurred by
the raising of bonds, and the
nece-.sary incidentials connected
with the handling ol same.

A Popular Concern
Our readers' attention is called
to the change ol M. J. Henry's
advertisement lor the spring trade.
Mr. Henry has his seeds grown
by the best growers in thc world,
and each variety is thoroughly
tested as to its vitality in his
greenhouse before offering to his
customers. Mr. Henry has had
over thirty years' experience in
growing and handling seeds, and
he says it is rather amusing to hear
people talk about this or that person's strain of seeds when probably they all came from the same
source, as one of the growers in
California wrote him that he had
shipped 50,000 pounds of seeds to
one English seed-house, and about
all the leading American and Canadian seed-houses procure a share
of their seeds from Pacific Coast
growers, one California firm of
growers cultivating over 10,000
acres to supply their contracts.
His fruit Iree stock is not grown
from imported piece root grafts but
ate proprogated on seedlings growing on his own grounds, and from
hearing trees, an?) as the lower sections of 11. C. is not infested with
borers or scale, there is no danger
of inlested trees wbfcn purchased.
Practical and painstaking planters
report no serious losses Irom his
stock, and one large planter near
Vernon reports a loss of only six
trees out of 3,000 planted, and
those were injured by moles and

Dartmouth Ferry.
In a letter to His Worship Mayor
Kealy, Mr. Prescott Johnson,
secretaty ol the Dartmouth, N. S.,
lerry commission, says:
"The Dartmouth lerry was
established in 1890. Having been
purchased (rom a private company, it is therefore owned by
the town, but run by a board ol
commissioners, which consists ol
the mayor as chairman and five
members, two appointed from the
council from their members, one
appointed at large by said council,
one by the local government and
one by the chief justice; terms
of office three years, with the exception ol the councillors, the
others must be freeholders with a
property qualification ol one
thousand dollars. The board
meets the second Monday of each
month to pass all accounts, etc.
The chief officials are a superin
tendent and secretary. There art
three boats on the ferry, two in
active service, crossing the harbor
between here and the City ol
Halifax every fiftfteen minutes.
The distance is about one and a
quarter miles. Two of these
boats are of wood and worked by
paddles, the other is a steel screw
boat with propellors at each end;
was built at Glasgow, and came
across under her own steam. The
fare lor adults is five cents,
children, two cents; horse, wagon
aud driver, twenty cents; double
ditto, th.rty-hve cents. Besides
which we have a system of
monthly commutation tickets as
follows: Families, consisting ol
man and wile and all unmarried
children residing under the same
rool, $3; man and wile, a**!.**!;
man, fi.50; lemale, 67c; male
under age, 84c. | servant, 34c.;
single teams, ty, double teams,
I3.67. This is doubtless the
cheapest ferriage in the world, as
with passengers who use the lerry
olten it does not average more
than hall a cent each trip. Our
crews are made up as lollows:
Chiel engineer, at »8o per month ;
4 engineers it J65; 4 captains,
$60; 4 mites, I48; 4 deckhands,
1)6.45. We use ,h: registering
turnstiles in the station house,
which arc attended ny girls, who
sell the tickets."
and North Vancuuver, I say that]
the property and good will ol the
business as it now stands is not
worth $175,000—may be wrong.
But lor the city at the present
time to make such a purchase
would certainly be wrong. Leave
the ferry company to do the best
for us and themselves. There are
many sound business men who
will be eager enough to compete
with them if they fail to supply us
with an adequate service. Because the City ol Nortli Vancouver
as still got borrowing power, i.e.,
that the city is not yet bankrupt,
it does not mean that we are at
present able to make this proposed
purchase. Let ll.e city's money
be utilised in laying out good roadways, and installing a good and
up-to-date sewage system, then
we will be utilising and spending
our borrowing power to the best
advantage. In a lew words, let
us do all we can to lay out a clean
and modern sanitary town; and
there is but little fear that private
enterprise will soon take the
opportunity ol supplying us with
a frequent and adequate ferry
service, not only to one point hut
to several points ol our waterlront.
I remain a taxpayer, one who has
the interests of our city at heart.

The Ferry Purchase
To the Editor oi TH( Exhisi :
Sir,-Much is being Hid regarding the intended purchase ol tbe
lerry by thf city. As 1 resident
ind taxpayer I should like lo comment on the IllbjeCt.
At 1 recent meeting of the boird
of inde it was proposed by
members of the council that the
City ol North Vancouver should
purchase the property of thc lerry
company, for the sum of 1175,000,
1 understand that this property
includes Lonsdale gardens, the
wlurves, linding stages ind offices
ol the companv at thc foot of
Lonsdale ivenue. Thc landing
stages and offices on the Vancouver side, near the foot ol Carrall
street. Also the floating property,
including the steamers St. George,
North Vancouver and Surrey. I
im of the opinion that thc (ore*
mentioned landing stages are de-
lipidilcd ami much in want of repair : that the landings with all
their offices on the Vancouvei 11.
must soon bl MCMMtU) removed.
The Surrey is s useles- antidc*
luviin enft of little or no use 11 a
lerry boat, so thit all (hit remains
of the property thit cm be so
celled, included in 1 money-earning proposition, is thi St. George

It is the intention of the property
owneri of 791, group 1, New

To the Ratepayers of the City of North Vancouver.
We, your lirst Mayor anil Council, take pleasure in submitting for your information the Financial Statements for
that portion of the year 1907, from June ist to December
31st, feeling assured that we can congratulate you on the
good work accomplished, and resulting advancement and
welfare ol the City.
lt has been a source of much gratification to note the
extensive building operations and the large increfie in
population during this term, and your Council has invariably
rendered every reasonable assistance, when practical, to
settlers and builders, in providing roads and extending the
benefits of the Water Service.
The completion of the new Fire Hall, and the organization of two efficient Volunteer Fire Companies have had
their good effect in securing for North Vancouver the recent
substantial reductions in lire insurance rates.
The Water Department is now financially self-sustaining,
the revenue derived being practicallv sufficient to cover
interest and sinking fund charges on the total cost; and the
Water Loan By-law, recently approved hy yon will provide
funds to further extend and improve the service.
Your Council recently arranged wilh lhe B. C. Telephone Company (or an all night and Sunday telephone service, which will greatly facilitate communication with the
Fire Department in cue of fire, and constitute an additional
public convenience.
A wireless telegraph station of importance will, in all
probability, be established at North Vancouver very soon.
Negotiations are now well under way between the Council
and the United Wireless Company.
The Queensbury boulevard and park recently deeded to
the city, procured by the passing of the by-law iu that he-
half, and the courtesy of the North Vancouver Land and Improvement Company in granting these magnificent assets for
a nominal consideration, places our fair city in the lore-front
as possessor of the widest boulevard in the west.
James F.Fell, Esq.,and H.H. Heywood Lonsdale, Esq.,
having donated to the city an area ol approximately ten (10)
acres on the westerly part of 265 and 532 for park and garden
purposes, are due the thanks of the ratepayers and citizens
generally for their kind generosity and liberality.
Your Council consider the sound financial standing of
the City, a matter of congratulation, and a recent sale of some
$150,000 of City Debentures at par, an accomplishment
somewhat unique considering the prevailing financial
Early in this term the co-operation of the City of
Vancouver, the Municipalities of North Vancouver, Burnaby
and South Vancouver was secured in a joint appeal to the
Provincial Government advocating the building of a com
bined railway, tram and traffic bridge across the Second Narrows ol Burrard Inlet, but no definite assurance as to its
erection has as yet been obtaimd from thc government.
This project is worthy of special aud continued eflort.
The Kerry Service, at present provided under condition
of the lease and 15-year agreement, formerly granted by the
District of North Vancouver to the Ferry Company, being
considered inadequate in many respects, your Council, alter
most careful consideration of the problem, concluded that a
practical solution would be for the City to own or control the
Ferry System and inaugurate an improved service, under the
supervision of Commissioners to be elected by the ratepayers.
With that end in view the Ferry Company was approached,
and alter considerable work and negotiation, an option was
secured, whereby the Ratepayers may, if they so desire, on
January 16th, 1908, solve the problem by purchase ; otherwise, under the terms of the said agreement, eleven and a
half more years must elapse before a similar opportunity can
again be presented.
The term has been a particularly busy one for your
Council, necessitating two long sessions per week, as [n addition to the ordinary routine work the ardorous task of
framing the requisite By-laws for the future government of
the City became their duty.
Many of these By-laws have been completed, and some
are still incomplete ; the completion of which will become a
duty of the incoming Council.
The Bylaw providing for Frontage Improvements on
streets provides an equitable and practical method of curtailing the general indebtedness and taxation ol the City, and
at the present time Street Improvements can be petitioned
Ior the actual cost of which is assessed against the property
benefitted in exact proportion to the benefit derived, and
payable by a special tax covering a period of years if desired.
It is gratifying to note the greatly increased School Attendance which made necessary the additions to thc School
Buildings.    Further additions will soon be required.
The Policing of the City is receiving careful attention,
and the records show our City to be very peaceable and
Healthful, natural conditions prevail and have been
maintained through vigilant care and supervision.
We are, Ladies and Gentlemen,
Yours faithfully,
The Mayor and Aldermen of the City o( North Vancouver.
