There am*, several very peculiar
points about ttlie Lord's Day act,
passed by the parliament ol Canada last session, but to .come into
force only on the ist of March of
of litis year.
First ei all is tin- singular feature
that the parliament enacting this
measure would not take the responsibility ifotr .enforcing it, but
having made the grand stand play
to the applicants ior the act passed
it up to the attorney-general of
•eaCh province to take the onus of
sanctioning or refusing anv proposal of prosecution for violation
of its provisions. If, for instance.
a small hoy should be found sell
ing a newspaper on Sunday, and
some person should lay an information against him, there would
lie a solemn application to the
attorney-general to say whether or
not the boy should be prosecuted.
Let the attorney-general decree
that since the parliament of
Canada in its wisdom prescribed a
penalty for the sale of thc paper
liis assent should follow as a
matter of course, he would he at-
tacted immediately (or going to
extremes iu order to bring the law
into ridicule; let him refuse
sanction, and another class c(
politicians vvuiilil he swift to attack him fur condoning violation
of a law placed upon the statute
book by tlie authority whose right
and duty is to legit-Jute iu tlie
premises. The provincial authority will be saddled with the responsibility for a matter which is
none uf its concern, according lo
the highest judicial authority : and
by this cowardly device the fed', ral
n ".eminent uill Hand in both
with tliflse'who asked'lor the Sunday law and those to «Innn its
provisions are oliuoiiulis.
- Then it is remarkable that the
milkers of this law have exempted
specilically the services over which
they liave control, Irom its operation.
" It is a crime for a private employer lo require or permit his
liana's to work seven days a week,"
says the New Westminster .. O-
Junil'ian, but as fur tbe government
of Canada, it is specifically, permitted tu exact continuous service.:
This notwithstanding that the
government uot only should -ait
tlie example of Sabbath observance, but also is in the position
of financial independence enabling
it to provide whatever help is required lor the proper observance
of whatever working hours may be
determined upon as ideal. Thus,
for instance, while the employees
of private concerns in New West
minster are placed beyond the risk
ol ever being tailed upon to work
seven days iu any one week, there
was no exemption dom continuous
•duty to lie extended say to lhe
stall ol the penitentiary. We use
this institution only as nn example,
because of the large nufflben ul
men employed there,  atul  not  bv
way of intimating that than is am
spirit ol discontent tlnn*. Hut il
six days is the uin|i "i lite nutk lo
be exacted by a private' employer,
it should be Ihe limit ior the
government service also,- aud tin
enforcement ol this limit at govern*
ment institutions would call simply
fur a proportionate increase iu tlie
stall, vi that a scvenllt nf lhe
whole iiiuuilier should have one
clear day off in each week."
Tfle municipal corporations also
fill have ;,iiiik thing to think about
when ihis aci goes inlo i In tl1. lt
will not be lawlul lur. them to work
their constables -ittd policemen
se*'en days a week, and any constable laying au information for
violation of tlic Lords Day act
■observed on his rounds will lay
himsuli open to retaliation (or
. Halving himself plainly violated the
spirit and the 'Mi i bf ibe act of
North Vancouver is unique
among Canadian towns. Its
population is an incarnation of
indomitable activity, .uninterinit-
tently obsessed .witli development
schemes, not frenzied, yet possessed and inllanied by Uie spirit
of advancement, The towu seems
to grow daily under the eye of
observation. It is not a miracle,
lint it is a prodigy ol progress.
There is little quiet lor the
visitor's ear during daylight. In
the residence district is tbe crash
of timber falling to tlie axe, the
blasting of the adjacent forest, the
gasping breath of steam engines
riving, wrenching, tearing trunks,
Stumps and roots from thc grasp
of centuries, while in the business
part tlie ear is assailed with the
moan of lumber in the sawmill,
the grinding ol the stone crusher,
the stroke of the builder's mallet,
the sireit ol tl.e ferry, or die hum
of the electric car.
A restless, unpeacefid, tuicon-
genial spot fur a home ? Granted,
if the slumbrous lethargy Asiatic
disquetude be the ideal of comfort
Hut to the typical westerner North
Vancouver has a strong, conscious,
overbrimming life, effervescent
wilh the joy of contest." The
Nirvana of rest does not appeal
to youi Nortli Vancouvei ite. His
career is battle with the inertia of
matter. His battery is against
primeval forest. His war is with
the wilderness; his aim to overcome, carve, aud improve it from
the face of the earth. He thrills
to his task aud revels in the atmosphere oi effect. The air of surrounding activity is his tonic. He
breaths it, lives it, feels that he is
of it, and it of him. He cannot
rest, . his- .hopes are coutinually
hunting into friction. lie is
magnificently drunk with ihe spirit
of progress, and munificently
blessed witli success. Prior tu incorporation of his city, and while
yet without t. joo inhabitants, bis
miles of graded streets and sidewalks were supplied by a muni-
cipal water system, illuminated liy
the arc light, and traversed hy the
electric car; bis industries were
run hy electricity, and he confidently challenged a parallel show-
ng by any other town of like age
or population.
North Vancouver has characteristic genius. Its departures are
unexpected and effective, ft does
not burn up its timbered lands as
Vancouver did hers, but converts
them into fuel and building ma-
erial. lt does not employ the
Oriental to nny great extent. It
piles the useless debris of the
forest in hecatombs 150 feet wide
at the base and 70 feet high. A
dozen such pyres may be seen
within a quarter of  a   mile squate
iu Nortli Vancouver, awaiting the
dedicating breath' ol the chinook
wind, and  the  sight  is  probably
unduplicated on the continent.
The North Vancouver citi/.en is
ambitious, but  egotism  is uot bis
besetting sin.    His public policy
is  positively  altruistic.    Ile lays
mil   most  ol bis streets on a scale
like that ol the Parisian boulevards.
His  liiiiinl .il  works is at present
' i.c.iu'-'l,... clearing publii  parks,
ami planning reservoirs; his land
companies are expending thousands ol dollars on publii: gardens
with  biiiiitains and shelters, audi
his council is al  the  moment  ne-1
gotiating boulevards of larger proportions   than   any  city   In  thej
world   can   show.     Although not'
olisti usively self-assertive, only an j
earthquake could shake bis faith I
iin his city.
North Vancouver is facile pr in - *

eyes of the continent.
