Building Permits Increase 600 Per Cent
Gas Franchise Under
$150,000.00 to Build
Third Big Ferry
" .Plebiscite On  Bottle
Liquor License
. -Norlh Vancouver's pbenomonal pro-
i gress is very decisively proven by the
building inspector's statistics as submitted to the city council last night,
when the regular session was provided
over by Mayor McNeish. Mr. Fuglor's
report showed that Hi building permits
had boon issued during tbe month of
February, tbe tolal value of sunn/ being Hl,ltl. Tho total (or the last two
months amounted to $103,166. Tbo total for January and February last
year was 118,780. Tho former roturns
show, therefore oSii1.; increase over
the latter. If it is true tbat "mouoy
talks" such authentic figures as these
aro tho best advertisement procurable
for the .immense faith tbat ia being reposed iu the city's future
Tbo muyor, prior to tho adoption of
tbis report, commcnlod briefly on Its
extremely gralifyiug character.
There was a goodly amount of general business to bo transacted.
YAmong tbe correspondence was a letter from the City Ferries Co. request
ing the couucil lo take immediate ac
tiuu iu the submission of a bylaw to
authorise the borrowing of 1366,000 for
Iho purposo of rcpurcbaaing tbe 40
years' debentures issued in lulu: (160,.
000 to be expended on tho construction
of a new ferry steamer of the same type
as ferry number three, wbicb cost ap.
proximately (136,000. Tbo question
was deferred pcuding further information from Ike ferry rxtrd.
Mr. William Tun.hull applied for a
license to operate a moving picture
theatre on Firsl street west in the
building uow und«r construction on
lots 16, 17, 18 sud 19. block 166, 1).
h. 374. I'.'riuiM.ii.il was granted sub
jeet to llic usual conditions.
Tbe district clerk notified Ibo civic
fathers ibal Rcevo May, Coun. Bridg
man aud lbc water commillee Inul been
appointed a committee to meet llic
council iu reference to tbo Lynn Valley
waler question.
A note of Ibauki emanated from Mr
Dougail Jenkins, F.ugiucers, for the
council's prompt actum in the matter
of a sidewalk on the soulb side of
Crescent street.
Capt. Catcs wrolo detailing lhe be
baviour of a lug towing a pile diner
on Friday evening. Apparently lbc
tug failed lo get out of Ibe way of tbe
ferry, wilb (be result that lbc hitter
vessel bad to reverse engines. The
captain sought the issuing to masters
of small craft of sucb ordei| as would
prcvont contingencies of Ibe above dc
scription. Tbo matter was hauded
over to the transportation commillee
I'rof. R P. Macnaghlen slated by let
tor tbat in viow of tbe fact tbat four
applications wc/c being madi for bottle
.licenses in Norlb Vancouver, tbe mat
Vir ought to be aubmittcd to lbc rate
payers Mr. Macnaghlen personally
understood Ibat a number of ratepayer!
were aoiious Ibat tbe Norwegian sys
torn should be given a trial in Norfb
Vancouver. Tbe writer wu therefore
willing to pay tbe costs of a plebiscite
worded as follows: "In Ibe event of a
bottle licence being granted In Norlb
Vancouver would, you prefer (1) that
it ibould be granted to I private indi
vidual, or (t) that it should be grant
ti to a comspany devoting all profits
■ (above 6 per cent, for interest in the
capital invcatmHt) lo objects of pub
Ul utility not supported by tbe rates."
Thi luggeatien WM handed over lo the
licensing committee.
Tbi city engineer rcporlcd tbat it
would cost about (1,300 to place a street
. alga at each intersection in the city
Units.   The matter waa left iu   Mr.
Hancs' bands.
Aid. Irwin made plainlivo llluflou to
certain occasions, probably within the
memory of moat cltizcne, when the
street can /all to conned wllh tho
tenia. The boat bad been known, in
such an event to pull out when the
c*r wm within a very short distance
ot /he wbarf. Aid. Irwln dwelt upyu
the aggravating character of aucb P ill-
cumetance, particularly u viowed from
tho interior of the wharf-bound car. He
thought that some rule might oo fo/mn-
lltoi whereby thi captain would hi era-
powerid  to show  »omo  consideration
ind loti the peoplo get aboard when it
only meant a minute or so's iluluy.'
Tbo mayor promiiod to raise tho topi •
at the next mooting of tha torry ill
Tenders wero then openud and considered ' /or the clearing of the ro-
creation ground. Tbo following pricos
were submitted: I.. Porcia, $386 per

$230 per acre; A. Scbongovyl, (176 per

and H. Muleoff, (136 per aero. The
last named tender was accopted.

supplying of crushed rock /of street
macadamizing purposes. The following
tondorod: H. V. Tucker, (89,386; Prix
ducor's Bock aud Drawl Co., (12'Vliir>:
I Ira nil e  Quarries Ltd., (110,666.
The clork pointed out tbat Mr. Tu. i.
or'a tonder was tbo ouly ono to reach
bis offico within the spccillod time
Discussion tban waged around tho
question wbothcr Mr. Tucker's tender
should be accepted for this reason only.
It was mentioned tbat Mr. Tucker
might havo grouuds /or objection if
tbo other two tenders were considered.
It was thou discovered that Mr. Tm I.
or was present in person. Ho wm therefore asked by the council if he had any
objection. He replied in tbe negative.
Even this did not sitisfy Aid. McRuc
wbo mado a brief oration of protest
against the procociliug.
Ultimately Mr. Tucker's lender of
(89,386 was accepted.
Tbe council decided to take up the
gas franchise question on Tliursduy

The Nortli Shore Was
"At Home" on Sunday
Concourse of Visitors from Across the
The glorious sunshine which Hooded
North Vancouver on Sunday tempted
an unuausl number of visitors across
tho Inlet, which, by tbo way, twinkled like a writable caskot of jewels.
Each successive ferry brought a fresh
cousignmcut of happy mortals of all
sizes and stations—many already acquainted witb the attractions of tbis
city and district, mauy on an interesting voyage of discovery. Innumerable
persons, aupportors uf the principlo
"tho bettor the day, tbe better the
deed," crossed for a speculative purposo; couutlcss others came merely to
brcalho tbo mountain air, pity tboir
frieuds ami relatives in the cast, aud
revel generally iu the luxury of life.
For tbis great eoncourso the city
strove nobly to provide adequate facilities Tbo B. O, Electric Railway
Company had a dozen cars running
Cspilauowards, Lynn Vallcywards and
mouutainwards merry clusters of pica-
sure seekers journeyed continuously
throughout tbe early portion of the
day to return later hot, satisfied, ami
a littlo tired and more full of pity
than ever for their friends iu the
east. During tbe day tho cars, collectively carriod 8,666 souls, mosl of
whom are, by In ordinary process of
reasoning, bound to become resideuts
ou the North shore sooner or later.
A grand rally of tbe Conservative
forces of North Vancouver will bo held

laitiment. A good program is being
arranged and tbe committee in charge
will leave no effort untried to promote
the oujoyment of all wbo attend. All
local adherents of the Conservative par
ty arc cordially invitod.

Ail Adaptation of Robort Browning'i
There is possibly no literary classic
better known tban ibis work of Browning in which he presents io bis inimitable manner the result of vanity,
hence there is little need of a description further than » brief outline. Tbor

Vletorii, Vtb- 88.—The last two d»y»
of the (bird Hi'Siiiuii of ilm twelfth par
liiiinoni of liritinii Oolumbl* wero
ovontfui. When one g»»ed at tbo
crowded order paper tbat groeted tbe
eye when tbe legislature met last Mon
ilny morning it did not aeem possible
that prorogation would be readied in
two days, but morning, afternoon ami
evening sittings tbat day did more
than an ordinary woek 'a work. At the
morning sitting bill pttei bill wis put
through second reading in quick suc<
cession. The explanations of the
movers woro brief and to tho pnint,
and tbe attenuated opposition 'allowed
little disposition to argue, tbeir main
desire evidently being to reach tlio end
as quickly as possible. In the aflernoon most of tlicto bills woro put
through committee of tbo whole and
tho evoning session saw Iho rcmsitidur
■ nli. i given third roading or brought
wil hiu sight of thoir final stages. Tuct>-
day afternoon saw but a baker's doien
left lo dispose of ami tbeso were rapid
l. put through or allowed to fall ui/dur
lliu legislation guillotine that decapitates unfavored measures at tho end of
Ibo session.
Among tbeso luckless ones wero to
bo numbered some labor measures in
(reduced by Mr. Hawthornthwuitu uud
Mr. 1'arker Williams. Evidently tho
government though! thai tbis attempt
to Bt Utopia iuto the four corners of
an act «f parliament was a littlo premature for this workaday twentieth
century, world, One of Mr. Hawthorn
Ili«alio'.- bills wan for Iho purposo of
compelling Ibo payment of not loss
than $3.80 a day for underground work
ers iu mines. He really withdrew at
the request of I'remior McBride, who
intimated lhat all these matters would
be considered beforo anotber session
by a commission on labor thai he in
tended lo appoint. Mr. Parker Wil
liams' hardy annual to compel lbc fort-
uiglitly paymenl of wages in places
where a given number of men arc employed within thi neighborhood ot a
bank never reached a vote on second
reading as the l'remier moved adjourn
ment on il bofore the last sitting. One
labor measure thai did seo daylight
wus fathered by a Conservative mem
tier, Mr. Ilayward, of Cowielinn. this
sel is for Ibe purpose of licensing and
regulating employment agencies. It
requires that agents shall pay u nonv
mel license foe of $1 every sis months,
lhat they must keep records of all per
sous for whom Ibey find cmplii;n,cni
ami these records must always be open
for government inspection. Mr. Haw
thornlbwaite succeeded in adding an
ainendroeul lo lbc effect Ilml any keep
er of a female employment agency
musl, before ho is given a license, bo
cure a certificate of cbaraeler from
Ihr mayor of tbe city or from   two
justices of the peace.   The ai idminl
bas Ibe laudable object of iusuriog
thai these places shall uot lie usqd as
centres of the while slave trade. Mr
Hiwtbornlbwille bad a bill of bis own
for Iho purpose of luruiug the employ
ment business over entirely lo lbc 'i.f
ferent government agencies in the
country, aud making it the duty of
employers needing labor or men oul
of work to file ll\r applications there
lu view of the Premier's ennuumcmonl
be did not press tbis measure filthcr.
Tbe closing hours of thl session were
perhaps, more remarkable for the au
nouneemenls Ihey brought forlli lli'iu
for Ihe legislalion Ibal thoy establish
cd or killed. First came the prem
ier's Inuouiiccmeut of the proposed
appointment of a eommission on muni
ripal matters, whose duty it should
be, not only to rearrange the Muni
ripal Act so thai it can bo followed
more intelligently, but tbey are also to
roporl upon various forms of municipal government wilb the object of re
porting to tbe legislature what tbey
consider to be tbe municipal policy
bait lUitcd lo the province as a whole.
Tbis commission will travel to places
in Ibe i '.'I'd States and Ciuada,
where the commission form of iiovem
ment hu been adopted and Ihey will
also go to eastern Canadian cities and
investigate the working of Boarda of
Control. This miller wm brought lo
a head by Vancouver's application to
be allowed to idopl a modified cominls
lu speaking of lbc Municipal Act one
worlby amendment to tbat bill this

Including (be atippply bill there were
88 new laws enacted during the session, and eleven meiiures Hint came
beforo tb* houso fajlpd to become lliv.
Outside of tbe sin bills tint embodied
tbo government's railway policy, the
most important single measure was
tbe Forijjjf Act, u bulky .statute which
provides ror tho creation of a bureau
of forestry aud reclassifies and makes
more stringent the regulatiohs governing tbo forests. Tbere wore a nujnbur
of smaller bills of social importance.
Ono mado is possible for women to
practice at the bar of tbe province;
another provided for an industrial homo
for young girla who have gone astfay;
anil the attornoy-gouerul's amendment
to Iho Liqpor Act mado mure stringent
the regulutiuus and the protection surrounding   interdicts.
Of educational Importance was Hon.
Dr. Young's bill to provide for the
opening of tbe new provincial univ.er
sity. This sets a definite date for culling tho Arst convocation; it invites
plans for tho University buildings as
a whole; ami sots aside half a million
dollars towards the construction of lhe
first of them. It is the beginning of a
lastlo of learning Ibal in a year or
two more will greet lhe ships going it)
ward or outward by Point Grey.
Iu is.i.im..i. IA tbese there were
amendments to the 1 ;■ i.. 1 Act and lhe
Water Act all for 'the purpose of keep
ing the laws in pace wilh the rapid
progress uf the country. Of tbut pro
gress tbere could have been no better
ovidence tbau estimates Ihut provided
for an expenditure of $8,000,01111 in pub
lie works during Ibe coming year,
and that still leaves the credit of Ibe
province so good thut nq olher in the
Dominion can realize so high u price
for its stocks iu lhe money markets
of tbo world.
Witb all this behind il, il is Utile
wonder indeed tbut the MeUrido gov-
eminent goes into tbo election thut
lies before it with unabated confidence
ll is littlo wonder, perhaps, Ihul ils
oppoueuts show signs of diseourageiuenl

...March fi, 1918.
One of the most important featurus
of tho rullway situation as it has developed upon the North Bhore Is found
in Ilie fact that it la now generally com
coded Ibat tbe great terminal elevators which are expected to be built ui
ther liy the government or by the ro
ipeclive railway corporations for handling grain frum tho pruirlo protinenj,
shipped via the weslorn route will bo
loculcd un this sido of the Inly.
It has long been roeognined by those
who wero conversant with tho real in
Km.hss .. of tho Munition rolalivo lo
satisfactory shipping facilities fur Can
adiiitt ..In ni, ilml a western route was
an ulisoltito necessity, but of late the
di'iiiiin.l has be. um.' so pronounced lhal
it bus ended recognition in iullueii

minnlcs overy element from lbe prob
lent i". .'pi Ilml uf the actual am uunl
of limo which will be required for Ihe
perfecliiin nf plans which arc already
In hand.
The past season in the prairie pro
vlncee sow sumo thirty million bushels
of wheat left in the fields all winter
lm. m... iif lack uf shipping facilities
Tbe total yiold last yoar was 180,000,
000 bushels, 0 total that was much lie
low normal. It is expected that the
yield next season will bo not less than
150,000,000 bushuls. The capacity of
Ibe route via the Oreat I,ekes is miiIi
eienl ut best lo liaiullo only a fraction
of this iinmensu crop. As fur the all
rail-mute eustward Ihe distaueu frum
Calgary tu HI. John's, Now lirunswick
(tbe nearest winter port) is upproiim
ulely unu lliniisanil miles greater Ihun
Iho iti.lume from Calgary lo Hurrard
Inlet. The distance from oilier great
wheat centres norlh of I'ulgary lo thr
Pacific coast  is correspondingly shuri
us cun.pm, ,1 with the di;.in  lo llic
Ailantie seaboard, Even with the oec
ussity uf sbippiug Hie wheal via tho
must route, uruiind Cape Hum lu the
European market, the situaliuti Is much
iu fuvor uf llurrurd Inlet as llic ship
ping purl, but wilh Ibe early upeiiing
' of lbc 1.11,uio,1 Canal, the advantages
uf tbe Pacific e^iift route will render
it immensely superior.
As Inr terminal elevator sites on Hur
1.n.I Inlet, Hie udvunluges uf the Nurth
Hliure iu Ibis respect are so readily ap
|,11.ni its to be absuiulely undeniable
uml public opinion has iccopted the
conclusion Ihul lhe movement upon the
purl uf greul railway companies lu
wurd construction of lines upo.11 Ihis
side of the Inlel, signifies thai these
great terminal elevators am lo be locul
ed upon the north shore. It is like
wise positively ulhruicd by Ibusu who
are in position lu know, that lhe Hum
inion government has in band a scheme
fur Ibe cVectlon nf elevators of im
mouse capacity upon the Nurlh Bhore.
'i'u uli. n.pi In designate uny purtirular
sites for these elevulurs (uf which
Ihere ure destined to be a number)
wuuld be tbe crudest kind nf conjee
lure,, inasmuch us Hie many miles of
tide Huts winch aro peculiar lo tbii
side of tlie Inlel, afford ideal facilities
for elevator purposes along the ontire
The many benefits which will accrue
' lu the Nurlh Hhore from the presence
of Ihis great wheat traffic are of the
must valuable and far reaching nature,
Accepting Ibo estimate of 860,000,000
bushels uf wheal as accurate fur llllli,
and bearing in mind Ibe fail lhat
only a fraction of lhal section of the
Canadian wheat bell /which
Would naturally Beck an outlet
by the western route, is
■t present uuder cultivation, it Is
ipiilo evident that Ihe possession of tbi*
wheot trallic would of itself make Nortb
Vaueouver lbe greatest sbippiug'port
on tho Pacific coast iu point of loti
nni"'. The possibilities tbat such a
jn.. -i-i ri opens up for the Norlh Hbure
Is better left lo tbo imagination-nf the
individual to picture for himself. Iu
any case, Ihey are sufficiently great to
satisfy lhe most sanguine hopes of Ihe
must optimistic advocate* of tbe fu
tore grealnesa of North Vancouver.

Approximately nine ye»rs ego Richard Mcllride, on* of Hritisb Columbia's
nativo sons, waa returned premier it
tb* bead of * government having * bar*
majority of on* in tba provincial legis
ture. At tbit time tb* province
VM practically bankrnjit, revenue wm
■0 small tbit the most rigid economy
could not hopo to avoid 1 formldlbli
deficit at tbi end of tbe year, the credit of the province was absolutely nil
■nd even worn, for the renon that
creditors were pressing for payment of
overdue liabilities and thero was no
money wherewith to pay. .
At tbe provincial elect inns held about
two and 1 half years ago, tho Hon.
lllchard Mcllride waa returned to power for the third time at the
head of a government whose
followers totalled thirty-nine out of a
house consisting of forty two members.
During tbe intervening yeara, the finan
cial I'oiid'iioii of tho proviuee bad un
dergono a most remarkablo transformation. Tbo Minister of Finance, Hon.
Price Ellison, was able to announce to
tbe bouse at tbo session juit terminated
that tho outstanding liabilities of the
province total $0,418,637, but that,
what wilh the ium of $8,686,647 In cash
in the bank and otber assets in .tho
way of securities, the province for Iho
first time since confederation, cau
boast an actual credit balance In tbe
public accounts and Ibat balance
amounts to $1,407,604. That is to say
weie it considered advisable, Hrilish
Columbia could pay evory duller Ibal
the proviuee owe*/ in the world,
and show a clear balance ovor and
above of tho amount last namud. The
magical change which has been
wrought upou the crodit of Ibe pro
vine* by litis financial progress is seen
in tho fact tbat Hritisb Culumbia is
now Ihu premier province in Canada in
lha matter of the price received for
provincial debentures, beiug throe
points in advance of the nearest com
putitor iu this regard. Iu addition to
litis, Premier Mcllride found hiunolf iu
posit mn to bring duwn during the re
cent session from Ihu several depart
mollis uf his government, a budget pro
viiiing fur tbe expenditure of sixteen
million dollars during tbu cumlng year
over one half of whirl, ia to bo used
for public wurks. Tbis immense IX-
I" iisliiun, which is tbe largest ever
sanctioned lu date by any provincial
legislature in the Dominion, the government is able to undertake wilb
evety assurance of beiug able tu meet
Ibe ubligalions involved, without add
ing anything lo the public debt.
Thero il reason for Ibe change above
notod iu the numerical strength uf lbc
government suppurters in Ihu huuacand
for lbe ehauge which bas taken place
In the liniiii. ml standing uf the province
While every reasonable persou will ae

incut in business bas been •» important

as to provincial finances, yel il is
clearly evident that Ibe eleclors of
Hrilish Columbia arc (otiviuced that
Ibe prime factor in those developments
bai been tbe sound and enterprising
policy win. li bas been followed through
out by tbe in 11111111.-ii..ti.in of Premier
It is further a notable fact lhal, owing lu lhe present enviable position of
tbe provincial finances, the government
has been able lo embark upon a policy of
rall«v development upon a icale hitherto unprecedcolcd in the hiitory of
my province of lbe Dominion and one
which wil) prove of untold advantage
to tbe rapid progress and development
of Ihe province at tbis important June

othor Important topic The ordinary
law, however, will COt interfert with
Jones whorover be goes bo long ai lio
1I011.1 not trespass on lorooboily else's
properly, ami it will not iulorforu .with
his talk so long ai his talk is nr,
slanderous or seditious.
The law adopts the same attitude
of benevolent Indifference to Brown,
to liiibiiniiiii and to all tbe other talk-
era and listontrs, witb tht result that
Brown, Jones, Boblnson anil others
may do separately when alone, provided
of course, tbat when tbey are together
thty io regulate their talking and
walking thoy do not interfore with
other peoplo aud do not make others
afraid of a breach of the peace. So
that, in tbo end, the public may meet
together, so long ai the assembly does
not truspass and tbo spoakers do not
slander others or preach sedition.
This looks very much as if the right
were givon to tlio crowd. It is not so;
it Is given to tho individual, and it is
through tho right of tho individual that
tbo public "rights" aro got. The
rights of tho iudividiial (subjiict to
certain necessary limitations) aro the
foundation of all those largor rights
which wo call "public rights."
Now ilieie aro cases whoro nicotines
aro bold, ami though tho assembly docs
not trespass and ils members neither
slander puoplo nor preach sedition, yd
tho law forbids tho meetings. The
mooting may havo becoino uproarious
aud violent, and threaten the safely of
thu peace. Here every good citizen
may join in dispersing the meeting, und,
indeed, it hccuuios his duly lo do so
if called upon liy ono in authority—for
instance, if called upon by a constable,
or u in.ij'i: inii- or u sheriff; but un
moru force lhan is just necessury muy
bo used; then deadly weapons musl
not be used to disperse u rowdy crowd
at a football match. Again, there lire
iiiiiiiiij.'i. where the people come together for an unlawful purpose, or to do
an unlawful thing in un unlawful way.
Such a meeting would he a criminal
ouspiracy. One of his majesty's jud
ges once said thut for two men to agree
to blow their noses in church at the
-inin- time during divine service would
he a criminal conspiracy. At any rute.
Die law relating to conspiracy is very
wide, and the writer dues not attempt
to follow it any further here.
As regards trespassing, one ought to
mention that people who gather in sla
tionary crowds in public si reels arc
trespassers. The streets arc lo walk
along, and not to serve as a forum or
meeting ground. An amusing case involving a crowd iu a slreei occurred
in London Hourly a century ago where
the proprietor of a cake shop in Regenl
trool wus charged with keeping uud
maintaining a public nuisance becuuic
ho employed a pretty girl in the shop
and she altracted a large number uf
men outside.
What is a itditious msetingl continues Mr. Derbyshire. According lo the
late Mr. Justice Stephen, sedition cm
braces "bringing into hatred or con
tempt or exciting disaffection against
the person of the king or his heirs,
against lhe government or the consti
tution of the United Kingdom as hy
law established; or against either house
of parliament or the administration of
justice; or exciting his majesty's sub
jacts otherwise than liy lawful means
lhe nli' i..ium of any matter in chunh
or slate hy law established, or inciting
any person to commit uny crime iu dis
turbance of the peace; raising ilia-
content or disaffection amongst His
Majesty's subjects or promoting feelings of ill will and hostility botweon
.lass and class. An intention to show
that the King has heen misled or that
ibere are errors or defects in the slale
is not seditious.
The wriler commends Ihe above to
those politicians (not of one parly
alonej who wish lo lake certain mat
ters into their own hands ,and believes,
us I.e. ky did, Ihul "there are no crimes
so serious and far reaching and produc
live of such widespread misery as those
which undermine the great pillars of
society." •

The audience which assembled in the
Knights of Pythias' ball lasl night applauded tp tho echo the masterly violin playing of Holroyd I'aull, the taste-
ful singing of Mae Qeorge and Herb-
ert 0, Cave tnd the humorous perpetrations nt Charlie Good. There wus
»n abundance of recalls and a niAuhor
of generous responses, the concert from
Start to liniiih being pleasantly sustained and deserving of a larger gathering of listeners.
Ur. I'aull, who has enjoyed tbo benefit of a personal training at the bands
of one who coached Kulralik and Marie
Hall, gave a splendid rendering of the
Unite to Mendelssohn's concerto in E
minor, lending unusual attractiveness
to the Hlaceato section. In the colebrat
ed ".Souvenir de Moscow" be again
achieved success,'while the introduction
of Scotch melodies into bis third item
"lieu Oleuch" tickled the audience in
to u furore of enthusiasm. He was en
cored thrice, responding firstly with
"Auld Iioliin Gray," then with a dun
cull Utile elude uml finally wilh a trifle on muted strings. Mr. I'aull is a
notable artiste but ii iu technique uud
treatment, but (if lie has not soared
beyond the rungo of friendly suggestions) he '..,,,.|,i do well to substitute
for that cunslant swaying motiou the
fli' iilin i ineiii und pussivity of, say,
Kubelik. Kneli a violinist as Holroyd
Paull is, however, uu acquisition to
thu west, ami his name will, dotiblless
come tu be mentioned inseparably wilh
British I'.iii.is.isi.s  music.
Miss Muu (leorge (very daintily
gowned, by (he way) wus not convincing al Hie outset, but, on being recalled, sang herself completely into the
good graces of her hearerH with "The
Harden of My Heart." l<ater she treat
ed "My Ain Folk" wilh quite adequate
sympathy, uml wus encored for both
this and Tosti's "Goodbye."
Mr. Herbert Cave was at heme in all
his songs, "McGregor's (lathering" bo-
log excellently snug. That difliciill
and well written ballad "I hear You
Calling Me," wus also treated finely,
Mr. Cuve replying lo a vociferous en
euro wilh "Yes ,lel me like a soldier
fall." (Is il |. ii..i i.i.l.■ ut this point
lo ['in. nilii ii'iill.i olwerui that self

Shore many limes in ihe future!
Mr. Charlie Hood seasoned the eon
'ert with solid Si oi. li humor, bringing
ono suddenly back to curl li again with
a eareful rendering of "Hoiked in Ilie

il.e Hurry louder hall mark. In

New Westminster, 11. (.'., March 6.
In order lo stimulate iiiterev, i'i good
roads lliroughoul Cauada, W. J. Kerr,
president of the Cauadian Highway
Association, is offering three valuable
medals for lhe best essay ou "Whal
Oood l'".isis Mean te Cauada." The
competition for these medals is to be
confined te boys and girls under eight
con yen's „f age und no dsliiiolion is
to bo made between sexes. Women
have long since taken a place iu liter
aluru equal lo that occupied by men,
Mr. Kerr believes, and a contest In
which girls will compete against boys
will be more interesting to all concerned lhan one in which separate pri
itos are given.
Tlio competition will be open lo sin
dents in ull puits of Canada and there
will be uo bard and fast rules as lo
tbe leugtb of Ihe essay submitted, al
though articles of 60 to 800 words will
be preferred. The well known 'ww»-
paper rule tbat writing must be an one
side of tha pap" only will he strictly

Competitors will be required to deal
With tUtl Pt Wall H With theories
in the preparing of their papors and
at) essays must bo to tba hands of tbe
secretary, P. W. Imce, IH Columbia
atreet, New Westminster, on Or beforo May 15.
The flrst prise will be a solid gold
medal hearing on tbo obverse a reproduction of a part of the Canadian highway encircled by the words, "Canadian Highway Association, 10111." On
tbe reverse tbe name of tba winner will
ba engraved, followed by tbe words
"First I ri/e Winner I'miu.li'i.. Highway Association Essay Oompetiton."
The see ind and third prises will lie'the
same as the gold medal, but will be of
silver gilt and of silver. In addition
a silver souvenir pin will be given every
competitor whose essays attain a certain . ii.n.t.n.i of merit.
Iu discussing tbe proposition to inter
i si. i.li yonng people iu goo I mails In
means of tbis competitiou Mr. Kerr
pointed opt tbat it waa Imperative tbat
lbe gospel of good roads should be
preached to tbe boys aud girls because
it is while the mind is in a formative
stage that impressions aro lasting and
ideas easily grasped.
"By interesting tbe young peoplo uf
Cauada in tho proposition to establish
i' i t'.iiiniiiiii Highway that wil roi.ili
fr in AlUrui, H. tt, to Ilalifa.", N. S. '
says Mr. Kerr, "1 expect to create wide
interest in tbis nm t      I realize
that once we have (ho support and
sympathy of tho public at large tbe
success of tbis enterprise is assured.
Get tbe young people interested aud
willing to talk about a question of time
until succoss crowns our efforts. 1
would like every school master and
achool mistress in Cauada to call the at
ionium of Iheir pupils tu the offer I
am making and to give them all pos
.■iiii'- assistance in preparing themselves
by giving them compositions oo sueh
for iuo writing of tbese essays, either
subjects as "Hood Roads"; "Canadian
Highway", "Tbe Building of Boads,''
"famous Itoad Builders," "Early

Thingh it Is spring In Vancouver,
It is winter yet In tba Capilano canyon,
only i fttt miles from tbe ejty in
Vancouver's great mountain park.
Very few people go to see the Capilano eanyen from December to March.
At tbis timo nf the year to look at tbe
vast sword-cut in tba mountains, it
like looking at tbe insido of a great
euld, lofty church. Beal winter Is not
far from the canyon now; the wind
tbat saws through tbe canyon's huge
tube comes from tbe snows. And tbo
February fog is. as austere as wot
I took some tanned liquor as a
prophylactic at tbe hotel, and inched
along tbe wooden flume into tbe chasm
that gulfs down hundreds of feet to
where tbe river, carded by little rock
teeth, cataracts below. The day was
serene. White winter waa ou the
mountains all around. Tha great gray
canyon looked at mo witb a look of
iron. Mystory and menace are tiro
fascinations of the Capilano canyon in
February. With Its suggestion of ages
unknown it reminds you of wild forces
lhat made it when tbe world was
Tbe secoud canyon is tbe nave of
tbe great, roofless cathedral nf tbe
Capilano, if sueb a thing may be said.
Ita rough-hewn architecture is of a
vast Doris order. The bed of tM'lillle
river tbat chafes tbe canyon's door
sille, bidden in summer In a green
abyss of beauboeage, Is Its crypt,
Oriels and vertsiei It lias In nicboa,
screened by leafage, in its mighty
walls; for incense smoke It has the
little mist clouds tbat catch iu its
ree limbs like kites. But instead of
priests you look for the old gods of
the outdoors, sud the only acolytes an
active imagination would expect to see
are mountain kobolds and foroet trolls.
But the canyou asks witb grey insist
once that some rites, priestly of pagan,
be performed.
, Of course, they should be pagan to
rbyme; you ran think of no christian
rites that would not seem toplil there.
When you think of tbe canyon's rbron-
"logy, you think of an older note

incrorable walls about sit lifelimes

under tbe canopy of a vory big devil
or a very big god. Not the civilised
and tamed god of Ihe priests and par
sons or tbeir tamed devil either, bul
god of some other mythology bleak
aud terrible.
The canyon baa Ihe majesty that big
simple maasca of form give. No man
could lind words to tell of Ihe lilcnrj
lhal lives in lhat huge gash, pressing
upon you like a weight of dark waters.
Tbis silence is tbo dismal thing about
tbe 'iinjon in February; it is thu un
canny mystery you feel lhat dwells
tbere. It blows ou you like a colder
wind until you want tu go away from

Tbe canyon Is of notable sire, but it
looks bigger in winter than in summer.
It . is big -enough to make you feel
very small. Tbe great cliffs rise above
you like castle walls, corniced, lur
retted, butioucd, aa you creep, feeling
very small, along the frail and precarious footway. In majesty and grim
ncss Ibe mighty walls lift above you
to roofless space. Tbe severity of its
winter color enhances the grandeur of
Ibe canyon.

the oldest of tboi nooks and crannies
of tbe p)d earth.
It was late liftoriioiiu and growing
dark in tbe canyon and the obvious
dangers of tho wooden flume which
sticks t° the side of the gorge Ilka a
wisp of tbo mist to tba wing on an
equinox gave to exploration p slight
spice of adventure. A false*etep would
plunge an explorer diAvu to death pn
the broken rooks below. Tbe black and
dripping plumes of tbe Hrs hung in
tha way. Tbe planks were wet and
slippery witb rain and in some places
broken or missing.
Heavy shadows shaded the canyon's
greens and grews and browns into one
flat and noteless tone, though In tbe
world above it was atill full dsy. It
was then tbat tbe true winter character of tbe canyon, its austerity and
aloofness, began to make itself felt.
In tbe deeponing shadows the ilnme
and its narrow board footway Were a
grey glimmer. The narrow planks
held up by tbeir slender stilts and
brackets, seemed narrower. Tbe can
yon walls began to contract and the
dim sky strip overhead became a drab
tapo. Tbe great crevasse grew deeper
as the shadows tilled out. Thu huge
cliffs bulked enormous in tho shaded
light aud their dreadful eummits beetled above me. '
To say tbat it was profoundly impressive bas a trifling sound; it was
more than that. -Pollough Pogue, iu
