Splendid Speech from H. H.Stevens—Highly
Successful Gathering.
Hsd tbe poet Byron—or bis restless
shade—wandered slong tho Eiplanade
on Tuesday evening, bii own immortal
lins would havo recurred to bin),
"There was a sound of revelry by
night." It was tbe occsitoo of the
Hoard of Trade*' second annual ban-
ipiot aud tbo convivial noises referred
to Iuued from the lintel North Vaueouver, iu the dining room of which
est s goodly assemblage of Board of
Trade Knights and a handsome array
pf guests withal. To enumerate thorn
by name would bs to catalogue most
of the loading lights of our North Shore
I'.iiiiuiiniiiy.liiuvtbcr with a siring of
|listinguiibed visitors from across tbe
Mr. P. I.arso|i'i faculty for carrying
but to a nicety the catering and goner-
|il management of an event of Ihil hind
was again exemplified on Tuesday evening, wkpn.a most eicellent repast u
waited the company. The four attenuated tables were decorated effectively, but without restraint, so tbat one
nover had lo fumble among artificial
trappings for a knife and fork. The
sttendauee was brisk ami assiduous,
snd the menu wai wisely sel forth in
comprehensible British language- -with
-the exception of tbe young turkey,
which did not taste any Ihe worse for
being "en croaaan."
Tho health of hii gracious majesty
the King having been toasted with cn
tbuiiaitu, Mr. 0. H. Morden wai called
upon to propose the Dominion Govern-
Ur. Morden dedicated his remarks
to the entire body of representative!
elected by Ihe people to control tbeir
national affairs. Tho opportunity and
government reited upon three bases:
firstly tbe geographical situation of
tbe couutry wbicb ll governed; secondly, the people wbo populated the count
ry; and thirdly the place tbe couutry
oceupiod iu contemporary history. Tbo
apcakcr then dabbled in statistics, proving thii "little Canada" lo be territorially espial to 30 Unit oil Kingdom.-.
17 Oirmanies, 18 Prancei, 3} Italics,
two British Indies and one Europe.
The Dominion possessed a coast line
of 13,111)0 nub - (of wbicb British Columbia compriicd 7,000), sud so lew
than :':','i'i'i square miles of fresh
water. This latter advantage, Mr.
Morden contended, would supply the
other interesting respects, the speaker
described graphically the exceptionally
, splendid possibilities of Canada.
Roapccliug the country's place' in
conlomporary history, Mr. Morden pre
dieted that it would very naturally be
sn important one. ' Considered, how
over, si a portion of the British Em
•ire, it would probably become the
most integral factor in tbo working out
of the destinies of tho British people.
Tbe speaker thou alluded to Iho portion of greater Vancouver aud lo tho
ambitious of tbo diitrict in regard to
the establishment of a great national
mul even international seaport. Ho
waa proud lo number Mr. H. li. Stevens
among hii personal friends, and proud
that the electors of Vancouver had
choien him to represent them at
Mr. Slovens, responding to tho loast,
' unl that Ibe theme wai one lo iuipiro
any true Canadian. He warmly congratulated the Board of Trade on tbe
splendid rojieit and Ihe succoii of
Iheir evening'! entcrtiinuicul, and ad
.led thai it wai just gatherings es that
that smoothed away the rough portions
of life, lie hoped that the banquet of
which this was Ihe second would be
perpetuated. He could uoi conceivo
auy better way for tbo business men
of tbo city and of greater Vancouver
to got together, and surely Ihe work
that bad been accomplished in the
past and was to be undertaken In tbe
future. '
"I recognise," isid Mr. Stevens,
' "tbe grsve responsibility lhat is vested in mc as representing such a rapidly
developing district n that of North
Vancouver and the other municipalities
tbst go to mako up wbat we aro happy
to call greater Vaoncoover. Tbe one
object I bave in view ii to serve tbo
people who bave seen tt to plsce tbii
responsibility upon me. I think tbst no
msn could bsvo a higher or nobler sin
in life tbsn to represent such a diitrict
SS that comprised in Vancouvor ajud
Greater Vsncouver. I believe tbii ie
C'misda'i century aod iu the development of Canada tbii district wil| lake
a moit important part. This Dominion
at oun it young. It is not * great
sissy yesn lioce 'Confederety.n, sod
it mint bs remembered tbst tiii Canada of ouri, si wo ice bar etttbe preeent dsy, baa bsen moulded into vigor
ous young nationhood not by tbe labors
of uny one politics! party but by tbs
effort! of Sll patriotic citizens
"The welfare of Canada," continued
the member, "has been largely brought
about by a isriu of communications
eait and west aud by jnterprpvlnclai
trade. I think tbst we ss British Co)-,
iimbians should exert ourselves to im
prove inlerprovineittl trade tq the utmost and oipocislly trado botwoon Britlab Columbia and tbe provinces of
Alberta and Saskatchewan. Wo require
for our perfect 'nationhood a homogenous Cauada in which each province
fulfils its proper function."
He urged the Board of Trade lo seek
to promote interproviucial Irndu. It
was upon those lines and principles
that Canada had been liuilt up.
Thero wero numerous problems with
which the Dominion was faced. One
waa the problem of immigration,
"if," Mr. Stevens declared, "we allow
people to come into this country whom
we cannot assimilate or who sre not
propsred |o live up lo our traditions
and consliliitn.il. we aro going to have
a very serious problem to deal witb
before very long. Tbe immigrant
from Northern Europe is highly
desirable, thu immigrant from
Southern Europe is much losa so, and
the Asialie, and I wish lo emphasise
this, is entirely undesirable."
ilis allilusle towards the Asiatic
hud, he knew, been criticized, but be
enured Ihe company he hud absolutely
no axe to grind, no personal interests
to serve. He freely admitted there
were some lines of business in which
Orientals wen: utilized as a means of
securing larger returns. Ho was not
interested in the principles of sucb
businesses. He was interested in the
building up of such au industry as
would be looked upon as un ussot to
the country when its founder was gone.
Home people bad urged that the .lap
anesc were British subjects ami lhat
therefore and interference wilh tbem
was out of tho question. They might
be culled British subjects and yet they
were denied tbe franchise. This very
faet showed that Ihe people of tbo
Dominion of Canada did uot wish lo receive Ihem on the same basis..aa olher
immigrants. Why then were they admitted at all I The method which had
been pursued in naturalizing the
Asiatic was a farce. It was time that
this farce wus put au end lo.
Then there were those wbo said lhat
if there was any interference with Ibe
.lapancso it Would create ill-feeling
with Ihem between Ihis country and
Japan. How in the world, if tho Jap
anesc were British subjects could it
rcate any ill feeling since Ihe Mikado
had evidently nothing to do wilh them.
"J havo met many Japanese, and Ihe
Japanese gentleman is one of the finest
and most courteous of ail," declared the
speaker. "But we have a duty lo our
country. Tbe Japanese cannot assimilate and all immigration of this kind
should be discouraged in (he ialcrcst
of the future of tbis great couutry of
which wc are now laying Ihe foundation stones." •
Mr. Stevens defines! the question of
citizenship os one of supreme importance. He thought that citizenship in
Canada was held much loo cheaply. A
man upon whom was conferred tbe
rights ami privileges of i'uiia>lian cili '
/.enship, should have some knowledge j
of the traditions of the country in
v.lsnli he proposed lo make his home.
Citiieiiship should be looked upon as a
sacred trust and should not be entered
upon lightly. The 'member then
dilated on Ihe subject of public utili
tics, arguing lhat it wus dangerous toi
allow corporations and individuals to
acquire too many of Ihe publfe utilities
of the country. Ho could oot blame
man or corporation for laying their
him,l- upon sll tbey could grasp, but
it was the duly of tbe government to
see that man's avari'i did not go too
far. Conservation of resources was a
subject upon which Ibe government
should take instant and decisive action.
Already Ihe Rockor/ellor intcrcsls snd
other Now York interests bad laid
bauds upon the wetcrpowor of tbis
country and were skilfully acquiring
the right to great sources of electrical
energy in anticipation of tbo future.
At tbis poiut Mr. Steven!' How of argument drifted iuto local channels. Ho
touched upon Ihe question of harbor
development!. Ho had been securing
the viowi of the different section! of
tbe constituency, ssd bsd concluded
that tbe 'suggestion tbst be bad made
iobjo weeki ego wss the wiiest one,—
that the government ihould appoint an
export commisilon to investigate tbs
fscilities, and a city of these dimeu
lions without railway
ronuiromeiils of tbe port of North Van-
mover. Further, the Dominion government bsd promised bim thst ths dredge
which il now at Naiiinio would com
mince work st tbe First Nsrrowi before
Christmas lu tbe removal of tbe shoal
tbere. The ougineer iu connection with
tbo Secoud Narrows bridge wai expected to arrive today, ami tbere would
bo no time loit in getting to work upon
something whicii wai of vital iiupnr
tsnee to tbe district. Railway connection! were absolutely essential to
North Vancouvor. Tbere wero 8000
people on he north ihoro without such
of these
S curiosity indeed.
He vory heartily responded to tho
toast of the Dominion Government.
The preiident, Alderman Smith, then
called upon ex president Alexander
Pbilip to propose the toast of sistor
Boards  of  Trado.

bad been issued lo the deportment of

all proceedings wilb respect to tbii

further Instructions have been given
by tho minister, the fact is clear that
tbo instructions received to take levels

other source. Upou Inquiry from Mr.

tbo chief architect. It would thero
foro appear, that not being awaro of
the fact that any instructions had been
given tho ehiof architect by tbi) outgoing minister this particular branch wai
not included iu the notification that
the purchase is stayed and the architect
therefore proceeded with the usuul

lenge si bis spurred heels rang on the
tiled floor. There was a gasp from the
intruder, a hurrying aud scurrying of
light foet across the room; then as lie
came en garde, someone clasped him
firmly round the knees, praying, entreating, whereat he lowered his blade
and cried aloud in liis surprise.
"By Bt. Ponyi—spit me, if 'tis not
a woman I"
"Oh, good sir," a sweet Voice pleaded, "an' you are a gentleman, I pray
you savo me from those whu follow
closely on my steps."     .
(Juntly ho disengaged her slinging
bauds, and in a trice had the i-audlcs
flaring in Iheir sconces; then he swung
on his heel uml lokcd at her. Al ibo
i-i,nu,: i.-i..i his keen look her hcuii
drooped, but she quickly beld it up
ugaiu, und met him proudly oyo to oyo.
''Bsve tbeet Aye, and most willingly," be answered, for, truth to tell,
fighting snd gallantry were os life to
bim, sgd tbe adventure promised both,
"Dpnte, sweef mistrais, dry those tears
Slid toll me what fair fortune throws
io bsppy p I'liance across piy psthi" t
"Sir, I sm run »w*y from homer'
"So—" The adventure promlied
more then he bid thought. "And
wherefore 1"
"They would marry me—" tbe
rod mouth trembled, and once more
tears welled to ber eyes.
"Noy, nsy—I pray you—why, what
is marriage but the common lot of wo
mankind, if they are beautiful enough
"Aye, put they who marry against
their hearts be fools," she retorted,
"and those wbo would force the marriage—kuavest"
He groped blindly for a suitable
reply, but, finding none, stood staring
at her, while a wave of pity for tbe
man who had been chosen swept
through his heart, to bo followed on
the instnut by one of envy for tbe
mini whom she, of her own free fill,
should choose,
"I'faith," he said at length, "so
you—er—will not marry with the fel
low of their choice!"
"Neverl Sooner would I die!" she
answered quickly, dropping her eyes
again. " 'Tis this wny:A week ago
they camo and told me that my brother had ' liiiM-ii a fitting mate for me,
nielliinks with a view to replenishing
his empty coffers. The man was on
his way frum Flanders lo sec that the
pUrcbsie wus nurth the price, and so
they liude me prepare, t'puti this I
fired up and told them nay, and that
none too sweetly. Whereat they lock
ed ine in my room till such times as the
stranger should urrive lo do his woo
ing." ,
"your brother—he did thief"
"Nay, but 'twas by his orders. He
hud ridden givey, doubtless to mee
ami hurry up Ihe buyer. Today 1 saw
my chlJlce snd fled, hut ill-luck dogged my steps 'and nigh placed me in
the grasping ham|s of Master Michael
Brospi, my brother's itewsrd,,wbo Wfc
lows bard behind,",
MAbl WhSt company -hii fides
With?" -
"Half s dozen rascals, nigh as obon
Si their lesder-"
"WhetI Duly sis to pool" be
laughed gleefully, -" I'faith, 'twill
scarce be worthy of us, yet the leupn
must bo taught."
For answoV ibe beld up a smell linger
snd bsde him listen. From down ' tbe
rosd csme a clattering of hoofs and
the bourse cries of the riders si tbey
urged their horses op.
"'Til tin'.'.," she whispered, all of
a tremble and clinging to bis arm
"Fear uot, they shall not lay baud
on .--"ii while I etand firm and this old
friend stays blade to hilt," ho u mm vied grimly. "Hut you in yonder corner while I parley with them."
They drew rein In the cobbled jfuril,
and a second,later tbe listeners heard
tbem tramping and sweariug in the
corridor as they bade the landlord tell
them whether he had seen tboir quarry
Then came a banging of doors and a
further tramping of heavy feet as they
hunted through the house. My lord
smiled and run his thumb along the
strip of shining steel ai he held, Anon
there was silence; then whispering
at the door as though the handle turned and two of their number came
stumbling in.
The lady gave a little cry and they
shouted in triumph to their fellows
that the bird was raged at last; but,
even as the words left their lips, thoy
saw the tall figure, blade in hand, and
paused irresolute. They would have
beat a retreat, but those who wore
left in tho corridor, mistaking their
dismay, pushed forward until all were
iu tho room.
"A fair even to you, gentlemen,"
quoth Uurtisi'le, wondrous soft of voice
though u very devil lurked in the eyes
thul scanned I hem insulcutly from head
to foot. "Nay, du nol hesitate.
I'faith, yuu are most welcome."
They muttered among themselves,
till, with u foul oath, one, more neatly
attired than the rest, pushed for.vunl,
a great hanger swinging in his hand.
"What funis play l/e thist" he
snarled. "Dolts, sec yuu not that we
have hut one man tu deal with. Belie
you the wench while I dock this tine
gallant of his plumage."
"Ah, Master Hrconi, 'tis you, ch(
my lord Isugbed, but si tjey tffl|OVp4
fprwerd, Ms voice rsng Opt Irfe p
tfumpti, ((Hy the Crosi, lay bV*'*'
fiuger on the Isdy and you go to meet
your Waiter, Feiber Sgtsn."
Scarce hsd be spoken before tbeir
leader r»»bed at Min, Qb's, twice,, be
■truck witb tbe heavy wespon tbst be
bore; tben wltb s chuckling, cry fell
bsck among tbe ibsdowi, sod after
squirming nni-e or twice, lay still,
'f.OnsH' cried my lord end swinging
swiftly   round   prepared   to   meet   the
others. A dsrk browed ruffian rush-
od st !>>"> with s chair, Imt danced
back howling, clutching at bii arm
from which tho red blood dripped.
"Two!" Then, ei he hung back, be
cried impatiently, "Gome, come, "til
not courteous to tarry over long snd
uninvited in a lady's pretence."
Quick as hii own bright blade be
sprung mining them, striking witb the
flat, till the oaken rafters rang witb
their cries of pain sud terror. 'Twee
soou at an end, aud dodging the whirling blade as best thoy might, they rush
ei! headlong from the room, nor did
they pause till thoy had gaiued the
safety of the open rosd.
Having wiped bis rapier on tbe tails
of the dead man's cost, be turned
with u guy laugli to his companion.
"Odds on'tl" he criod, \nt they
lie gallant gentlemen." Then, becoming vastly serious, he stood and looked
at her, stroking his great square cbin.
"Now, what's to he done witb you,

quiet yonder—wilt returut"
"Tbst will I neverl I no longer

was eyeing her.
"Nay, do uot blush, J mean no

In discussing tome of the features of
tbe population of this province in "The
British News of Canada" Mr. Artbur
Hawkes, the editor, observes "The relation of city to country population
in British Columbia, is too high. You
can't have prosperous cities all the
time without prosperous territory behind them. The vital prosperity uf the
coast cities of Hrilish Columbia is the
vital prosperity of tbe valleys that lead
from the backbone of the continent to
the sea."
In themselves these are remarks
which might consistently bo made with
reference to any country in which there
has developed that prououiiceil trend
of population Inward the cities, which
ia characteristic of the present day.
They might be made for instance with
reference tu New rlnglaml states where
there arc "tens of thousands uf abandoned funns" or with reference to Ontario, where it has been computed Hint
there uro "one hundred thousand fewer
people living on the farms than in
Nevertheless it is possible thai the
disparity between the rural uml the
urban population is inure pronounced
iu Hrilish t'ulumbia thun in other places
ami that that disparity is really so
great iu this instance us to afford
ground lor special comment.
There cannot be uny serious dissent
from ull Ihut is to be said with refer

Ihul so for as such inducements can
be made effective, in building up u

to lay tbst sli but the smallest fraction of tbe population at preient eg-
tabllibed in pur citiee and towns, will
remain in urban life, iu apite of all that
can-be done. Jt is likewise safe to lay
that a very large proportion of those
who are continually coming to the province from other places either come
from city life or aro retiring from
agricultural life and tbey will inevitably establish themselves in city homes.
At the same time there is without
I.mill s considerable portion of tho
in inning population, which, because of
om' consideration or another l| up

up farm lands, provided attractive ad-
milages or suitable inducements are

iusion that some effective government
scheme might be evolved, whereby the
members of this ever increasing tide of
annual immigration might be met at
the gateways of the province ami work

III view of the exceedingly great importance that attache! to this problem

government lo proceed even further,

spec| in the advantages uffonlcl bv

Any measure that can be adopted to

The recently publish.'.i census returns
for the decade ending with lull, bring
out, in u very forcible manner, the
position of commanding influence winch
thai portion uf the Dominion commonly
known as "l|ic West" is destined to
Occupy iu federal affairs.
The number of member! in the house

of representation in the province of
Quebec. The number of representatives
frnm Quebec is fixed at flu and the tolal
population of that province apportioned

During the decade just terminated Hie
population of Quebec lias, increased
more rapidly in proportion, lhan Ihut
of any other province in Hie east.
The result is that the clcilnral unit has
increased relatively more Hinii the
corresponding increase in the other
eastern provinces. Hence, ultlioiigh
Ontario, for illustration shows an
actual increase in population of over
1100,000, yet in redistribution Ontario
would lose four members. Kelutivcly
the same conditions obtain with reference to tlie representation of Nova

The net result is Hint Hits eust loses

above, the east would still have a preponderance of three to one, but each

Mr. Philip expressed regret tbst
the presidents of tho Boards of Trado
pf Vuncouver, South Vancouver and
Burnaby wero unable to be present. He
waa glsdYtofever, tlist tbey bad smpng
tbem t# esteemed preiident of the
New Westminster Bwrt\ He believed
thst the Bister boards were coming
eloaer and. closer together witb them in
the cauie of developing common interests. Tbere were now a groat many
live issues that might be presented for
the consideration of the Board, and Ur.
Pbilip strongly advocated the combined
esrneat efforts of all tho Boards of
Trade. It was a pleasure to him to
propose the toast.
Preiident White of the New Westminster Board of Trado, responded. Ho
extended tho greeting of the aecond
oldest incorporated board to the niost
recently incorporated one, and complimented the latter upon its splendid
turnout. He regretted to say tbat bis
own oldor board was possibly feeling the
weight of its twenty-eight years. They
bad uot held a banquet for three yean,
and their secretary has now gone away
to Now .Voil, ou a mission concerning
potatoes. "Wc arc very iutoreated in
potatoes at present," i.-ii.l Mr. White,
domurely. The speaker designated a
Board of Trade as being among the
most important organizations in the
country. They must certainly all develop together and assist each other as
much as possible. The Boyal City
president outlined the prospects of hia
owu Board, and in conclusion expressed
a hope thai they might be able to
welcome the North Vancouver Board
or a representative at a liuni|Uet which
be wus endeavoring lo organise during
his tenure of office.
The proposal of Hie Provincial Government fell to the lol of Mr. Lambert
Bond, who delivercsl hiimsclf ebsrse-
teristicnlly. Uke "poor Vorick," Mr.
Bond is a "follow of inlluith jest, of
most excellent   fancy,"' capable   of
»t flashes pf merriment that wore font
tp ipt tils table |n a roar." He justified (hie Shakespearean simile op Tun-
d»y 'light by instancing as p sample of
tbe north ehore'a exporting powers, tbe
npt altogether proven fact that thl
famous cougar emanates from tbie tide
of the Inlet. Becoming suddenly seri-
oua, howeyer, bo considered that, whatever British Columbia'a natural resources were, tho province depended greatly
upon the large ami wide public apirit
of iti citizens. In the cborlebing and
brlngingup of that spirit, no one could
be more useful tban the Board of Trails'.
Mr. Bond referred, now eloquently, now
humourously, to the qualities and functions of tho provincial autboritica.
'' Tho greatest teat of all,'' he remarked,
"waa for a government to be put into
power with no opposition." He believed that the beat function of a government waa to leave people alone.
Dr. Howe, of the Vancouver Tourist
Association, responded in eloquent
terms, portions of his address, however,
being rendered itiaudiblo by a talkative individual of whom the doctor aaid,
"I sli mi Id be sorry to luterrupt tbat
gentlemau." Proceeding, be declared
that the government of British Columbia had before it an undertaking of
immcusc magnitude. Some might wonder why Canada had not gone ahead
faster than it had. The fact was that
the handling of the country's vast resources wus a thing that had beeu impossible in the infancy of the race. It
waa a job for the world to undertake
after it bad attained its majority, and
after science had grown suflicicutly to
grapple with the many dilliculties of
development. The doing of it bud been
reserved until now, when the mail could
be found that could do it. Hr. Howe
dwelt, with earnest oratory, on the
essentialities of u peasant population,
arguing lhat uny state that did not
comprise u due prupiirliuu of the population settled on the soil was not a
properly adjusted slate.
On the question of citizenship the
speaker enunciated lliul the man who
became a citizen pf bit Majesty should
be' rpcpigf iiei) everywhere ai sucb. If
be be s British subject in one place,
be ia a British subject ji) every place
and ii entitled to the protect inn of (be
Union Jack. Tbe future of Canada,
aaid Dr. Bowe, waa a certainty. "We
ahall," be declared emphatically," lie
the very weakest and moat incompetent
kind, pf peoplo if we do pot develop
tbe great resources at our bands
Upon tbese resources, snd upon tbe
many attractions of the province, the
speaker touched in a poetic, but eascn
linlly sane manner, and in conclusion,
associated himself heartily with the
toast of the provincial government.
Hoove McNaught alao responded,
quoting tho proverb tbat "good wine
needs    nO    I'll.-dl."       lie    Indies s'sl    that
theirs was the best country in the
world, ami tbat British Columbia wai
the best province. He even believed
that the Ipwer mainland was the best
part of the best province of the west
country. He disagreed with Mr. Morden's theory that Hi ua .la's native-
born population would increase as immigration increased. An interruption
from his listeners provoked the Reeve
to an caruest defenco of celibacy.
Finally, he imagined himself for a
moment as the provincial government,
ami promised many beautiful things for
Nortli Vancouver.
Mayor McNeish, in the absence of
Mayor Taylor, of Vancouver, rising to
propose the toast of the North Vancouver Board of Trade, gave a short, breezy
speech, emphasising the inestimable
value of the Board of Trade.
The President of the Board, Alderman
Smith, responded, ami bricdy thanked
Mr. Stevens and President White of
New Westminster, for Iheir presence.
Mr. Smith mudo allusion to the civic
advertising and employment bureau.
"This," he announced, "under the
publicity committee is doing excellent
work in finding employment for, ami
imparting valuable information to
strangers. It is lily opinion that this
work  ought   to  be assisted  by  tbe
Provincial (lovcrninont, us the keen
competition with railway apd shipping
companies bring the settlers here—
tbere numerous agents dpipg sll the
boosting required.
"We sre pleased," continued the
President, "thst our friends -across
tbe way have, at last, seen tbe neceaaity
of harbor improvements, and 1 am suro
wo on thia side will endeavor to do our
part in tbis, one of the most important
works we can possibly undertake. 1
think another question that Boards of
Trade ought to consider is that of providing work for our prisoners. My
opinion is that instead of wasting
loney building jails wo should use the
men to build roads-away back north
through these mountain's, where we
have fine valleys of timber, also many
plateaus which would make good
ranches. This work while it would be
worth millions to the Province, would
also elevate and give vigour to these
unfortunates. I advise that they get
payment for Iheir work, so tbat by the
time their term expired, they would
have 'something to keep thorn until
the found employment. I am sure that
you will all agree that tbis is a much
saner way of converting criminals than
shutting them up in cages like so many
wibl luminals." Mr. Smith also announced lhat the following gentlemen
regretted their inability to be present
ut Ihe banquet:
Premier Kichard McBride, Attorney
General W. J. Bowser, Dr. G. A. Mc-
Ouire, M.P.P.; Hon. F. Carter-Cotton,
M.P.P.; aud Messrs. Chas. H. Tisdall,
M.P.P., Henry H. Watson, M.p'.P., A.
Mi'Caiidless, Pres. Vancouver Hoard
of Trade.
Vice-President K. H. Bridgman ulso
responded, uml put in u plcu for an in-
reused membership, accentuating the!
fuel thai the Board was non-political.
Norlh Vancouver, he suid, had advene-
to a population of tPHHI with only
Iwo ferry boats, uml be saw uo reason
why Ihey should not one day be pruc-1
for ever since one pressman bud risen
ami departed from the table, members
t|c|||y as great si tbo Vancouver eide.
Vice-President Kealy, referring to
the diminution pf listeners laid that
North Vancouver had evidently grown
tired and must go tp bed pt an early
hour. He supported the previous
speaker's plea for increased membership, advocating the Board of Trade
becoming a kind of debating society
sp long as thoy got the varying views
of the different sections of the community on the North Shore.
Mr. .1. p.'O'D. Wood, In proposing
the health of the Press,, said that
there was no denying tbe great power
that it controlled. Delicately veiling
some slight dissatisfaction, Mr. Wood
expressed a hope tbat as North Vancouver grew, so would the length of the
newspaper reports grow proportionately.
Mr. B. ('■ liilliiuun, responding, said
that the controlling power of the Press
bud been plainly exemplified that night,
of  the  gathering  had  been  steadily
drifting after pirn-  Op bpbslf pf hip
confreres, who had deserted him in hit
hour pf need, he thanked then) fpr tftelf
Mr. Kealy then proposed tbe pt-
sombly't hearty thanks to the good-
natured persons who had eulivpupi) tbp
eveuing with music and sppg. Then..
Included Mr. Hoolcy, wbo waa loudly
encored; Mr. Stovell, wbo waa similarly

cpnaiating of Messrs. Ward, Sharp,
Ward and Farmer, whose harmonies
provokcsl a tumult of applause. The
Lynn Vulley orchestra, under tbe leadership of Mr. i 'ham e, provided capital
music throughout tbo evening.
Everyone concerned iu the organization and management of Tuesday
night's banquet should be complimented
on a function which was highly succcaa-
ful in every respect.

Police Commissioners
Two Hew Appointment! Buggested-
Protactlou of Bank* and Publio
A police 1'oiniiiisi.i.ni, compriaing
Mayor McNeleli anil Alilr-miuu Hen-
.lurson aat yeaterday morning at tlio
city hall. The chief's official reports
for the months of September ami
October were approved,' the statement
revealing that 2) ind 17 police court
cases hid been heard in the two
mouths respectively. The city pouud-
kui'p.T reported that in September
a bay horae waa impounded and, beiug
unclaimed, waa sold for 110. A team
of homes waa redeemed by contractor
Young on the payment of feed oxpenaea,
while a cow waa claimed by Mr. T. S.
Brown. In October, one horse, unowned was sold for 125.
The commission then discussed the
advisability of appointing a clerk to
attend to polico court work ami to take
down notes of the proceedings in the
.-nni 11 debtors' court which is about to
be established. The Mayor suggested
that the police eourt fines, instead of
being turned into the treasury, Bbould
go to pay tho salary of sueh a clerk.
Magistrate Kealy, who was present
during I liis portion of the business,
said there wore other charges which
they couIjI legitimately make, such as
charges for the transcription of evidence.
In reply to Alslerinaii Heiiilerson, the
Chief suid lhat this appointment would
release ilr. Shepherd from police court
work, the Muyor agreeing that as the
city was growing so rapidly, there was
enough work lo keep the clerk continuously engaged in his own department.
Mr. Kealy commented ou ibe fuel
that four morning! in one week, the
court bad not risen until twelve
o'clock. The llayor was iu favor of
paying a clerk u deliiiile wagu rather
than for his services when' culled upon.
lie then could lie retained and utilized
ou the premises.
Aldcriiiiiii Henderson held the same
view. He recommended to the couucil
that the appointment lie a permanent
one, and thai a clerk lie advertised
The commission then drifted into
the technical points of a by-law relative to tbe "arrest of a cow." It
was wondered whether the owner of
cattle could lie charged with having
allowed the auimuls lo wander afler
tbo said owner hud collected the suid
.'Utile. It was contended on one baud
Ibat a cow could only be made Ihe
aubject of a charge while it was al
large, while ou Hie oilier hand Alderman Henderson Iui.1 slress on Ibe fact
Hun an otTeiise ha>l been committed
whether or not Ihe owner bud recalled
lie- uanslering one. In Ihe end, it
was decided to ask the cily solicitor
tor Information us to the'nature of (be
The Chief Intimated ihut owing to
the rapid growth of Ihe nl;., , seemed
necessary to make slight changes in
the police department. He recommended that a janilor for tbe city
serve as pouml keeper and jailor, un/l
so liberate an additional constable for
patrol* duty to keep wat.eb on Ihe
ity'l business houses and banks.
The Mayor said thai Ihe council had
dealt with the subject and had left it
iu the hands of Ihe Chief and himself.
II appears thai the local'bunk managers had' written requeuing belter
protection. They asked thai a patrol
of Iwo men should visit the banks every
two hours during tbe night.
Alderman Henderson, while agreeing
that full police protection was necessary, thought thai the bank managers
should be recommended to take some
steps to provide , up to date burglary
alarms on Iheir premises.
It was ultimately decided to recommend to the council tbat the Chief be
empowered to employ a man to act aa
janitor, jailor and pound-keeper, thereby releasing the present jailor for patrol
duly, and that the bank managers be
I'ljiiiiiioninited wilh on tbe question of
equipping their premises with modern
alarm appliances.

The book of Gsther'is like s mountain stream, ft is transparent snd

chapters. Yet'it is s mirror of tho
soul. Jt reflects all emotions. It has
been described as a wonderful ami
paradoxical history, anil it is afllrmcil
that the customs of tho Peraiau court

nil the fertile resources of bor womanly wit. With no lachrymose face,
nor disheveled hair, or piercing cries
did she run into the king's presence;
but every inch a queen, with womanly
carriage, with completes! toilet, and all
the charm of her beauty, she stood unhidden and fully conscious of her peril. Her jeweled foot pressed her grave.

is no abuse of women it docs not resist. If the Bible is the temple of wo-
manhood, the book of Esther is its
holy of holies. A king once asked a
scholar what he thought the strongest
pvidcni'c for the authenticity of the
Bible. "The Jews your majesty,"
was the laconic answer. The feast of
Purim is u strong evidence of tbe genuineness of the Book of Esther. If,

Ferry Directors
Board   of   Trads-Ratepayers'
A joint deputstlon from the North
Vancouver Board of Trade and the
local Ratepayers' Asaociation paid an
afternoon call ou tbe directors of thu
Ity ferries yesterday and made one or
twu suggestions and complaints relating to ferry matters,
Mr. II. c. Wright, the new president
of the association, being chosen spokesman, said thai Ihey had comu in the
hopes it obtaining somo information
on behalf of the residents uf Nortb
Vancouver in connection with the
bridge which was supposed to have
been put over the Cl'.II. tracks near the
approach to the ferries at Vancouver.
It was uiislersloosl that certain temporary arrangements hud been iiiuile
to do away with the danger now Slitting on the other side, ami I lie llutc
payers' Association had recently pass
I a resolution asking the delegalion
to see if it was not possilde to have
temporary bridge erected at once.
They hail obtained information from
au experienced engineer to the cil.-i
that such a bridge wouhl nol

use, they considered it
to have il done right Ai
M '
.jS iti was to be
lake probably more
monthi to complete, ami in
lOmu interim patrons of the ferry were
daily running greet danger.
Then there was the gate on Ihe oth
er side. Mr. Wright declared that ut
the busy limes of the day Ibe women
ami children were bumped up against
that gate, which stands ajar like a
lot of cattle. He asked if it waa not
possible lo improve the gate or make
other'more satisfactory arrangements.
so that it would not be a jostling
match lo get on to the ferry. Also
there was the sidewalk from the ferry
lo the street which wus promises! by
most of the gentlemen at the lasl ferry election! I> had been said that
010,000 were lo be spent oil Hie wharf
on the oilier side. The deputation
failed to see where lhat amount had
been spent, with Hie exception of a
root whicii lm I been put over a shed
Further, there wus the question of
bringing the .ars on to the wharf on
the North Vancouver side, during Ihe
rainy season a great umount of mud
.i ■ .iim.i.ji. i iii Ihe spa>e which it was
necessary to cross from the wharf to
the present cur line, ami the'delegation
considered that it was possilde to remedy this nuisance.
Mr. W. .1. Irwin laid emphasis on
the importance oi Ihe questions which
Mr. Wright had brought forward. The
deputation, be said, was Ihere at the
unanimous request of Ihe Association
ami the Bourd o/ Trade. With regard
to tbs Vancouver entrance to the boats
Mr. Irwin suggested lhat it would be
better to have the ticket collector near
to the oulside entrance, Then there
would not be so much congestion as
at present. The speaker then alluded
to, the sanitary conditions prevailing
on Ihe boats.
Mayor McNeish, in reply, outlined
Die course which Ihe directors had token lo secure the pending construction
of the subway. The railway commission bad grunted permission for the
building of the tunnel and the govern-
incut were lu pBy -.,,n'i" towards its
construction. II woulf probably cost
between tlt,0Dn ami 1111,1)1)1). Plans
hud been mado and blue prints forward

be to call for tenders and commence
work upon Ihe subway, ilis Worship

At this point Mr, Ilasrd arrived
with thu plan, am) the assembly pored
ovef it, Mayor McNeish explaining the
On the question of the temporary
bridge Mr, I'. Larson queried whether
tho i i'.i*. wuulil give permission for
it to be erected since they hsd given
consent for Hie construction of the tunnel. On the other hand he wsa of the
opinion that the subway wouhl not
be completed for quite twelve mouths.
Mr. Wright interposed that hs knew
tlie i'l'.ll. did not like bridges, since
it Interfered with a certain branch of
railway work in which the men stood

Mr. Jesse Williams was in favor of
such a temporary bridge but did not
think they would be able Ito get it.
Hu also pointed oul that quite a lot had
been done on Hie other aide on the
strength of the $l!i,iiiui. For instance,
Ihe passengers had now a separate
way by which to approach Ihe boat,
ami need not eomingle with the teams.
Mr. Boult asked if the aame applied

some persons made of covering Ihe

"in to know that Ihis was not all

Mr. Wrigrt argued that u safety-
switch would be very necessary, since
they had had three runaway care iu

had been personally interested. He
thought, however, that something
should ba done to accommodate pas

The mayor /assured Ihe deputation
