The lembers   of  the  North
Vancour Board of Trade  and
cltizenienerally were surprised
to   lean  ol    the    curt    reply
of Manfer Quin of  the  ferry
compan  to   the   very   lengthy
commutation of thc board   of
trade Harding   improved   ferry
service. The letter   referred   to
containe this sentence:   "Should
it    be  nconvenient    for    your
compan] to reply to this   com*
municatin within one week from
date herol (September list), we
would esecially request that you
continued present  half-hourly
service util you have  sufficient
time to tply in detail thereto."
The frry company in replying t. this modest request
acknowledged on September aand
receipt o letter containing the
resolutions and suggestions, and
conclude- that "same shall be
brought o the attention of the
board of lirectors ol the company
at the ne* meeting."
The lurhcr fact that the municipal councl received on September
34th the proposed new time table,

be lantaiiont to au emphatic

demands of all interested in the
upbuilding of the Ambitious City
when they so ably insist upon an
improved ferry service.
The EXPRESS took tbe grounds
last week that the ferry company
was alive to its best interests, and
went so lar as to state that we
believed that it would grant all the
reasonable requests made by the
citizens.   We also stated that we
regretted   the   absence   of    Mr.
Hamersley,  who is president   of
thc board of trade as well as being
the chief head of the ferry company.
But we thought that   those   in
charge during hss sojourn at Atlin,
if  only  to    preserve   the   best
interests of the  company,   even
though at a slight financial loss,
would readily comply with the request of the citizens to continue
the half-fourly service until   his
return.   The ferry system, though
controlled by a private corporation,
is a public utility and therefore
aud assisting them, there is, we
believe no doubt. In districts 1
which are purely agricultural, the

We dn uot always see eye to
eye with the municipal council and
board of trade, but we recognize
that these two bodies directly
represent tbe vast property and
financial interests of North Van
couver, and for a company or anyone to adopt a policy of abruptly

at a tremendous cost, and are alive
to corporate   Interests  and   tin
great possibilities iif Nortli Van
I COUVer,   The ferry system hold,
I the key to the situation, inasmuch,
that   an   inadequate   service   to
meet   the  tramway   means   thai
the    people    cannot     take     full
advantage of the car lines hen
Virtually,   then,   an   inadequate
ferry service means a broken link
iu the chain of communication
between     the     Terminal      ail,
Ambitious Cities.   The outlay ol
one company is more than double
that of the other, and thus it  wil
be seen that unless an uninte,
unwise,   say,   in   the  district ol
Brandon, Manitoba, to offer large
premiums for exhibits of lumbei
and minerals, where none are produced—so in our judggement, it
is a wasting of   opportunity   in
North   Vancouver,   to   omit   to
recognize the lumber and minerals
of that vicinity and the various
arts, trades and   mysteries   that
grow out of them, and which in
the future, may not   impossibly
lie among the chief feeders of the
future city.

Dr. Andrew Wilson writes: "Year by
year the subject of the lost land of
Britain grows in Importance, If, ns thu
1 geologists tell us, wo lose annually a
mass of land equal to Gibraltar, It may
bo an easy mutter to calculate the pe-
,'io.l it will bike well nigh to nnul-
dilate certain areas of our country.
Wo are told lhat on our east const

the rate ol wear ami tear Is appreciably lessi'iiei'i. The sea. inorenver, In
dealing with even bard rocks has a
very distinct plan of Invasion, lt will
undermine ,1 cliff, fur example, it
will use the detached bowlders ns a
kind of marine artillery, the wnves
seizing thom und burling them against
the rocks. The undermined cliff topples over nnd falls, and the waves
play nrouiid Iho detached mass until It
worn away. Sometimes the attack assumes a different guise. Tho waves
beat against 11 cliff nnd tunnel 't
through, leaving thus a natural archway such its lhe locality around T'or-
quny Illustrates very aptly. Then In
time the top of the arch falls in, and
the outer side appears as the lone sea
stuck or pillar. This In duo season Is
nlso worn down by degrees until it appears us tho tangle covered rock over
wh ch the waves are ever breaking,
"To bo convinced of Uie Immense
lo-* of land for which tbe sea Is responsible one has only to consult goo-
loi nl works and ordnance survey records. Take the case of Yorkshire, for
example. Professor Phillips said that
the rate ut which the cliffs recede from
Bi dl ngton to Spurn, it dislaneo of

two yards and a quarter yearly. Estimated fair tlllrty-sls miles of coast,

"In old Yorkshire maps mere nre

Berries of the  llrautlful nml Pr«.
tti'iuit pimento Tree.
Tbe plmeuto, or allspice, tree Is cultivated iu the t^est Indies and Jamaica, This beautiful tree usually grows
to a height of about thirty feet. It
has a straight trunk, much branched
above aud covered with a very smooth
brown bark. Tbo leaves vary lu size
nnd shape, but are always of a dark,
shining green color. 1 luring the months
of July nnd .August lhe tree Is lu full
bloom, the blossoms consisting ot very
fragrant small white Dowers,
Wheu a new plantation of pimento
trees Is to be formed no regular sowing or planting takes place, because it
is next to Impossible to propagate the
young plants or In raise Ihein from
seeds lu purls of the country where
they are not found growing spontaneously, Usually a piece of laud la selected either close to a plantation already formed or in „ part of the wood-
laud where pimento trees nre growing
lu a native Btate, The chosen piece of
land la then cleared of ull wood except these trees, und UlO felled timber
is allowed to remain on the ground fur
tho purpose of protecting tho very
young pimento plants.
At tho end uf two years the land Is
thoroughly cleared, and only tbe most
vigorous pimento trees and plants are j
left standing.  'I'he plants come to ma- '
turlty In about seven years.
In favorable seasons the pimento
crop la enormous, a single tree often l
yielding a hundred or more pouiida of
the dried spice. The berries are picked
while green, becauso If left on the tree
until ripe tbey lose their pungent taste
and arc valueless. The green berries
ate exposed lo the sun for a week or
ten days, when ihey loso their green
color and turn a reddish brown, When
perfectly dry ihey ure put III bags nud
casks for exportation,
Tho odor and tho taste of tho plnien- '
to berries are thought to resemble ,t
combination of those of ehinamon, nutmeg and cloves; hence tho familiar '
uunio "allspice."
