Arbor Day on the
17th Day of March
Highly commendable and in
keeping with the proverbial enterprise of our fair young city is the
setting apart of an Arbor Day and
the declaration of a civic hall-
holiday on tne above date by order
of his worship Mayor Kealy.
It is hoped that all the citizens
will cooperate heartily and assist
in the successful inaugujation of
this the first annual Arbor day for
the city of Norlh Vancouver.
Of great historic importance,
utility and arboreous beauty in thc
years to come will be many of the
trees planted in our public grounds
at this time.
Is there one amongst us who
has not Oil many'a'hot'summer
day enjoyed the cool shade of
some friendly tree that had been
planted perhaps in like manner as
these trees are to be planted ?
In a lew more vests lhe trees
that we now plant will not only be
a source of comfort lo residents
and visitors, but a material aid toward the realization of the city
beautiful.
A committee has been appointed
representing the city council, the
school board, the board of trade
and the horticultural association,
arrangements will lie made for
trce**planting on Victoria park, the
Chesterfield avenue school grounds
and the horticultural grounds.
I'ROOSAH.
The program arranged provides
for meeting at Victoria park, al 1
o'clock p. m., on Tuesday, March
17th, each man, woman and child,
who can so attange to bring ope
or two trees, suitable for planting,
and the men to bring along spades
and shovels, in addition to their
quo! 1 of trees.
Iba city engineer will have
stakes set indicating where trees
may he planted.
The con mittee in charge will be
at Victoria park (Lonsdale avenue
antl Keith road) aud there announce further arrangetm nts as to
tree-planting on the school grounds
and horticultural grounds.
Suitable young trees may be
obtained at any of the leading
nurseries for fifty cents each, and
some very good specimens of
native maple may be obtained
free in tbc suburbs of North Vancouver, it would be well, however, for each person to have
their trees on hand one or two
days before the 17th in order to
avoid delay and disappointment.
The school board recognizes the
value of a varied collection of
trees on the school grounds and
parks,thus constituting the neuclus
(or an arboretum that will provide
better facilities for a more comprehensive course of nature-study
ior the children.
New Secretary of
Board of Trade
Owing to his rapidly increasing
business and multidudinous other
duties to perform, Mr. J. H. Selkirk has been forced to resign
Irom the office of secretary of the
board of trade. Mr. Selkirk has
held the position for some months,
and has loyally and punctually
fulfilled the many duties of that
office. Most laborious among
these is the compilation and
financing of the year-book oi the
North Vancouver Board of Trade
now on tbe press. This book
contains beside many North Vancouver views, complete slatistici
of its growth, its mercantile and
other business.s, and will contain about 100 pages when finished.
The expenses of production have
been entirely defrayed by voluntary subscription, which Mr. Sel:
kirk was instrumental in securing.
The new secretary is Mr. J. R.
J. Murray, of the real estate firm
of Elder, Murray Co., and has
since the incipiency of the board
of trade taken a keen interest in
its affairs. In Mr. Murray the executive have made a wise choice,
and we may look forward to the
work ol the secretary being done
to satisfaction in the future as in
the past.
Mass Meeting
Discusses Licenses
A public meeting was held in
St. Andrew's church on Wednesday evening to discuss the question of the attitude of the ratepayers to the new licenses to be
applied for next week. After
hearing worda of counsel and encouragement from Mr. Matthew
and Rev. Mr. McRae, interspersed
with solos, the meeting settled
down to the consideration of local
affairs. After several short addresses by local men, it was moved
by Mr. McBain, seconded by Mr.
Device, and carried, without dissent, "That in the judgment of
those present no additional license
is necessary in North Vancouver,
and that the license commissioners
be petitioned to refuse the requests coming before them." A
deputation, consisting oi Messrs,
G. A. McBain, Martinson, and
Jesse Williams, Mrs. J. Hall and
Mrs.' Wheeler, president and
secretary of Ihe W. C. T. U , and
the pastors of the Anglican
Methodist and Presbyterian
churches, was appointed to present the resolution before/ the
board of licensing commissioners.
The circulation of a petition
against the granting of the licenses
was bit in the hands of the
Women's Christian Temperance
Union.
Considerable vigor was shown
in statements regarding the recurrence of the necessity ol ap-
pealing to the electorate against
new licenses. The most to-be*
desired solution of the difficulty
lies in local option, when the ciiy
shall once for all determine
whether there shall be any licenses
at all. The vast change that hai
•wept over Ihe old country, where
brewery stock hn fallen at a
slump, and the marvelous spread
oi prohibition over the United
States were commented on, and
the devout hope expressed that
the wave ol reform would soon
reach the Pacific coast.
Meantime it was evident that if
the power lay in the handi oi
those gathered to discuss this
question on Wednesday, North
Vancouver would not only have
one real dry day a week but
seven. THE EXPRESS, NORTH VANCOUVER, B. C.

The Fertility of
Sunny Lynn Valley
The cutting left at this oflice
last week by a subscriber in the
valley is a splendid testimonial of
the growing qualities of the land
in the valley. The stock measured
seven feet four inches in length,
and is the product of .a year's
growth.
The fertility of the valley is well
known, and we are assured by
competent authority that it is in
many places especially suitable
for nursery purposes, thc results
that have been obtained equalling
In many instances those of the
far-famed Willamette valley in
Oregon.
The fine southern slope surrounded by the mountains on the
north, and particularly on the east
and west, gives a very early
growth. The altitude is about
500 feet above sea level, and in
sures it freedom from those fungus
growths that are prevalent on low
elevations near the sea, and makes
it an excellent place for green
houses, the best of light being
obtained all through the winter.
No Iia/e or logs to obstruct the
light, and its freedom from late
frosts in spring or early in the fall
makes it an ideal place for a
nurseryman. We are surprised
that not more nurserymen are
giving their attention to this part.
The extension of the street car
hue. into the valley in the very
near future will make it one of thinnest suburban districts on Burrard inlet.
IT PAYS TO ADVERTISE.
The average merchant usually
gives advertising too much or too
little credit. If the store management and service are bad—if the
Stock ii poor and the sales force
inefficient and discourteous—he is
likely to have a poor opinion ol
advertising, for advertising can do
Very little (or a store of that sort.
On the other hand the merchant
who has a fine store with a good
stock oi merchandise and excellent
service is apt to think that it is not
necessary lo advertise. He thinks
he can get along without it on the
presumption that the store will
advertise itself. That's where he
is wrong. The better the store is
the more thii fact ihould be advertised.

North Vancouver is justly entitled to the distinction of being
an enterprising city, and its
citizens generally are noted for
ourtesy, truthfulness and honor
ii discussing fairly and impartially
details of the administration of
civic government by thoie whom

While it is to be deplored that
occasionally some two or three
misguided individuals, laboring
under some serious misapprehensions and an over-estimation of
their own sell-importance, so far

BUSINESS BLOCKS
The financial deprestion which
has considerably effected the cod

Ambitious City, judging by tbe
large number of buildingi erected
and in course of erection here.
No time in the hiitory of the city
hii there been luch a rapid growth
in thii line, n already there are
over fifty residencei and several
linsinri- blocks under wiy. The
outlook for even miny more is
molt gratifying, and it will be but
a short time ere we have a metropolitan aspect when viewed from
the inlet.
The block being erected by Mr
W. Owen, on Firat itreet, ii fast
nearing completion. The contrac

confectionery, will be well under
way hy the end of the month.
These itorei will be Urge and
well adapted (or busineia. Up-
stairs the ipice will be made into
living cotims, ind will be fitted
iip-te-tlale.
An office, alio diagram room, ii
now being completed on the northwest corner el the Wallace shipyards, which will also add greatly
to tj.e general penptctive ol the

his real estate business.
The new 115,000 residence ol

01 the wood used being imported
Irom Austnlii. The floor of Ihe
drawing-room it composed of walnut and tillowwood inlaid, with
five strips ol eich consecutively
placed and forming the outside
border. Tbe wide staircase in the
Iront hallway is in itself a work
ol art, and is composed ol osk and
walnut. In all there are eight
rooms, all elegantly finished in
harmony with the furnishings.
The house ii situated in the centre
of nine lota on Sixth street east,

house will be finished in ibout
three weeki time.
For originality, both as to design
and finish, probably -Mr. F. Ba
Cudney'i residence — or more
properly lingilow—is unique.
The appearance is that ol an old-
time log houae, with iti deep-
setting windows end its low hanging roof. Mr. Cudney has done
much of the work himself, and
the design is purely his own. The
interior is beiig finished in natural
wood, and contains, besides other

Ritchie Meets
His Waterloo
Driver Miller, the ex-army pugilist and victor of thirty-five battles
on the coral strands of India, retrieved his lost reputation Monday
night, when, in the third round of
a strenuously contested encounter,
he succeeded in getting the best
ol Bob Ritchie, of the North Van
couver Athletic Association. From
the start the contest was fast, each
man working with determination.
Each man was at his finest
The first round ended with honors
even. In the beginning ol the
second Ritchie landed two blows
on Miller's jaw. Miller then re
taliated on his opponents body
with such force that it was at
once seen that he had all but
knocked his man out. The two
squared off again, but Miller
gained on his opponent, when the
gong saved the latter at the end oi
the second round. Miller opened,
strong in the third, landiug bodily
blows that were fast telling on
the North Vancouver boy. At two-
minute time Ritchie went to the
floor, but rose in a dazed condition, only to fall again before the
rain of punches. The third fall,
the referee gave Miller the
decision.
From start to finish the contest
was clean and manly. Jack Mc*
Pherson, the referee, having no
occasion to interfere. The breaks
were clean and quick, Ihe punches
square and precise.
About 350 people availed themselves of the opportunity to witness the mtich-talked-of bout. The
betting was decidedly in Ritchie's
favor, no doubt Miller's lormer
showing causing ionic apprehension 11 to his capabilities.
Just prior to the main bout R.
Breen, a well-known fistic artist,
entered the ring and challenged
the winner.
The preliminary to the main
bout, between Lane and McLean,
wu rather in the (arcial class,
both men (ailing to do even a
sparring stunt, either from predesigned irringement or through
(eir of eich other.
