Extension of Lonsdale Avenue
Car Line
Mr. F. R. Glover Visits North Lonsdale
Mr. f, li. lilm cr of t'ne Hi il mli i nl
iniiliiii Electric Bailway Company was
mi Tuesday aftoruoon conducted into
the region of Nortb Lomdale and
: in".n the euiulry developments that
have taken place in tbat lectiton—developments which, iu thu opinion of thu
district council justify an early exton-
siun of tho car liuo.
. Mr. Glovei was accompanied on this
tcntativo  i-.pi'iliiinn  by  Beeve  May,
. ' Count. Linnet, Bridgman and Ward,
' aud Mr. A. G. .Pcrry, the company's
local manager. Tbo clerk of thc weather whn ii apparently convinced of thii
noceisity of thii line .switched on tho
lunnicst of weather and su enhanced
the  natural  attractiveness  of  Norlli
'"' Lonidale that Mr. Glover wbs moved
to pay a superlative tribute tu the
general beauty uf the vicinity. He
euiiaiilereil Norlli Lomdale was one of
the inn-1 residential sections iu the
whole world nnd wai immensely surprised at the amnunt of building t'j»t
hail l'i-i'ii going ou.
Ai to the early extension of the cur
liuu, Mr. Glover naturally could mak.1
nu prumiioi. There i auu doubt, huw
ever ,u!iuu! his rcpurtiug favorably to
bcadipiarters and a ipeoily realisation
of tho council'i hopei may aecruo to
this personally conducted tour. The
Lonsdalo lino has bcou a sourco of
trouble between the city and district
eniincils aud tho H. C. Electric Bail-
way Oo. for over two years, ami it is
expected tbat   things   will  gu  ahead
Hii, .il, I-, if this mutter is set tied onco
and for all.
Coun. Loutet seized the opportunity
of reiterating the suggestion he mail.)
some little time ago—namely, 'bat ,ie
twecn the hours of five and seven in
tho evening the company should run
a "nonslup" car frum the wharf te
1Mb street for the eonvciiienco of
pascugers living beyond that point.
Annoyance has long been expressed by
Upper Lonidale residents that each uf
the two northbound curs should have
to stop ut every block; a pruceeding
whicii renders the journey a tcdiuuily
lung une. Mr. Glovor ami Mr. Perry
agreeil Ihut tho suggested remedy was
wurth a trial. Ap-angomonti are
therefore, to lie made whereby one of
the I.ouidale cars shall make its first
halt after leaving the wharf at 1,'iin
slreei, while tbe accund car will make
all the ciistumury pauses en route.

Mr. L. S. Eotou gf the North Van
. inner Coal and Supply Company, intend! nulling upon the city cuuucil
tonight iu connection witb tho grid
iug and plunking of St. George's Ave.
from tbo company's wharf tu tbo Esplanade . On recoipt uf a satisfactory
reply frum thc city fathers, the freight
steamship service between Taeoino,
Seattle, and Nurth Vancuuver will be
inaugurated ami the Vancouvor-Tu
euiuii Steamship Company's vessel, the
"Murniug Star" will commence her
weekly calli.
The catabliibuwit of tbe service
which ii being contemplated will form
an opening for the settling uf many
wholesale businesses iu Nortb Vancouver. At preient, according to Mr.
Eaton, the wholesale firms in Vancouver obtain all thc buiincis of the local
rotailcrs wholly bccauie of tho cost
of getting raw material into the city.
The fuel that the projected service
has cuiineclions at Seattle with tbe
Milwaukee railway, will be au induce
ment fur local importers to order goods
-straight from the factory. Mr. Eaton
states thai already several industries
on this side of lhe inlet have promised
to import large quantities of goods
frum the other side.
I    Immediately on tho return of Mr. H.
H. Stevens, M.P., tbe matter of cstab-
I Hiking a customs ollice here will be
I taken up.   Norlh Vancouver is said to
be the only city of a   population of
| 8,000 in l.'auadu which has nol a customs officer stationed in it.   Local im
i purlers   are   nniiuus tu have   either
I branch ufllce of tho Vancouver depart-
j monl esloblshed or a separate office al
together.   Such a service as Ihis is expected to bring wholesalers here and
the arrival nf wholesalers is eipcotod
to bring  larger steamship  companies.

Final Match in All Star
Ice Hockey
The brand uf ice hockey put up by
the All Star eastern and All Star west
eru team al Ihe Vancouver arena Tucs
day evening afforded the immense
crowd an opportunity to witness this
fastest uml most exciting of all uth
Ictic sports, at its very best. . The score
—ten to four—cannot be said to accurately represent the relative merit!
of the two teams. While the better
loam undoubtedly won, yet it was very
nuliceuble that the 'superiority of the
field work of Iho westerners over the
easterners was not by any means so
greot as the score would appear tu
indicate.
The western aggregatiuu certainly
experienced much greater success iu
getting past tho gual keeper lhan did
tho eastern learn, but nevertheless in
tho matter uf dangerous shots on Ibe
net Ihe honors were evenly divided.
The work of Lehman in goal for Ihe
weitorn All Stan wai tbo most not
able feature of a coulcst tbat was
marked by Ihe higbcit excellence
tbruughout. It wai due to tbe icuia
lional manner lu which bo ituppcd the
hottest attacks that the caitcrncrs
failed lu pile up a funnidable icoro.
Tbe last match of tbe aeries will be
played on Saturday cyoolng. Tbe
work of the eaitorn team"' ihould be
greatly improved in consequence of
Ihe two firat matrhoi and the itrcnu-
ous effort! winch they may be depended upun to put forth to lower thc

Inalde.
"Walt!" aald I. "Tbia la a solemn

"Ob, don't teasel" cried Qpnevleve,
dancing up and down wltb Impatience,

"I'm not teasing, my dear," said I;
"I'm terribly Berlous. We are pretty
near the end ol the trail, little girl;
alter we havo read thla Imposing document we will have reached the end.
I'm hallway sorry, too, notwithstanding the grim tragedy that baa bung
over us. Wo must celebrate the last
event with an appropriate rite—a Are
upon the library hearth."   '
She Hushed with delight, and con-
aented io wait until I had tbe Aw go-
log properly. It was a most successful
Are. We dragged tbe library table up
close; 1 Jumped Qenevleve to a seat
beside ine. She placed a band upon
my shoulder, and our beads were
again very close together.
"Now, tben I" 1 shook the papers

phrases of a man used to exprcBBlng
himself without and rhetorical embellish ment or nonsense.

(From our own correspondent)
Montreal, April 2.—It is OBtimatotl
by tbe departments of Agriculture of
both Canada and tbo United States
that at least two thirds of tho productivity of cultivated (teas is lost by
tho depredations of wsrrai, bugs, maggots and similar insoets. That is to
say, when a field is cultivated in tbe
ordinary way, tbo valuo of the ultimate crop is only one-third of what it
might lio wero tho iucursioiis of insects obliterated,
In Oanada especially, and in the
mum recently populatod districts ninst

ami comment that of lato yours scion
lists of European and International reputation bave boon devoting much
time and onergy in an endeavor to lind
a rcinody, Tho government has spent
money laviahly iu making experiments
witb various methods of preventing
loss. Agricultural societies, iudupuu
denl fanners and orchardists, private
philanthropic persons, havo scourcd'thc
world for a cure for these pests. Up
to the present, although niuny have
beon tried, uot one inulhod of treatment has succeeded. Paris Qreon,
saml ami kerosene, carbolic acid, min
oral and organic fertilisers, bisulphite
of carbon, puisons and repellents ul'
all makes and descriptions have been
used and failed. That is to say, although in certain Instances the nui
sauces seemed tu abate for tne time being ,tbcy never havo beon absolutely
eitorniinatod by any inelliuil generally
employed.
About two years ogu the attention
of a well known foreign scieutist was
called tu conditions existing in this
country. By pcrsonul inspection and
investigation he found thai Canada
and the United Stales, two naturally
eicellont countries fur producing large
rops wero being millions uf dollars u
soasou by so called   "crop failures."

Europe. To tho layman this seems surprising. But it is easily;pndcrstood
'•■lien ono hi nil., that game in a forest undisturboil by the hand pf man
grows tu greater strength and numbers
than in territory surrounded hy civilization.
After studying tho quoBtion at lirst
band this chemist, wbqjo name is with
held for tho present, set to work to
■Snd the remedy. He bus found it. Tho
fact has been undeniably proven. Experiments liuvo boon made in tho United Mtnlos whicii absolutely pun e. tbat
thu day of those posts is dune. Naturally his method is a secrot. It is
Iqnwn, however ,th»t it cuusists of
trcatlug tho ground before planting
probably a luuntb befurii. Not unly aro
the inseels wholly destroyed but ibo
eggs may lie fumul under a mlcroscqpe
wiiully exploded uml scarred. By this
inelliuil, tun, the ground liecuines bountifully fertilized, uud in ovory In.

Wlun ihu ivcutlicr becomes inildor,

and all kinds uud natures of pests

WEST VANOOUVBE TBAN8POBTA
TION FAOI^ITIEB
The Incorporation of the new muni
cipality of Weat Vtncouver, whose ler
ritory li comprlted, roughly ipeaking,
by ail tbtt portion of the old diitrict
lying weit of Capilano river, raises
tt once t queitlon wbleh while of
prime moment to tbe new municiptlity
itself, ii tt the ume time of tbe very
greatest importance to tbe city of
North Vancouver and to the entire
Nortb Shore, namoly tbo matter of
transportation facilities for pasieuger
traffic between tbe new municiptlity
tud tbo city tnd tbe diitrict of North
Vtncouver.
It ii essentitl to tbe development of
tbe North Shore tint to the utmost pos
Bible limit tbe interrelttionihipi of
ill soctions thereof be established ami
maintained upou a Iniis of the clos
eit intimacy. Any project that will
serve to link up any one portion of
the eitended territory of wbicb tne
Nortb Shore is comprised with any
other portion—and tbui Issist in
wilding tbo whole into a solidarity,
commercially, socially, educationally,
or in any other ptrticultr—ia a mul
ter worthy the attention of every portion of tbe community from North
Arm to Howe Bouud.
Tbere is no single feature tbtt will
accomplish more for cohesion among
tlia leveral portions ui the Nortb Shore
and for building,up 1 strong well developed and symmetrical community,
lhan will tbe following of an enlorpria
ing policy in the construction of a
thoroughly efficient internal system of
transportition by means of whicii
evtry portion of the territory can be
readily reached from overy other portion thereof. t)
Tba situation in tbia regard is such
that unless tboie facilities aro estab
lished internally, woll in advanco of
what might bo considered the ictuei
i. ipilruiiiuniH, tbon eiternal routes of
transportation will possess themselves
uf tbe traffic in its early atagei, with
Ihu result that well worn lines of com
municition will be cretted tud busi
hob tnd oilier relationships will be
csttbllsbed- previous to the linking up
uf an internal transportation system -
whose influence it will later lie found
must difficult to counteract, with thc
reiult of i' iiu.sin ni and serious iin
j i.jiin. 1.1 In Nurlh Shore inlorests.
With jusl such a situation, tbo coin
iniiiiity is face to face in tbe mailer
uf transportation facilities tu ami
from the uow district of West Van
cuuver. This question bis already
been under discussion by tbe commillee in charge of the incorporation pro
ceedlngi und liy other public bodies
These discussions havu made it clear
that tbo bands uf the municipality arc
lied as fur lliv building of land trans
porlatioii facilities to connect with the
other communities on tbo Norlh Shore
ll is cerlaiu, however, Ihlt t muni
ciptlly owned ferry service will tl
once bo established botween Holly
bum tnd Vincouver.
Tin situation is fraught wilh con
siderttioni of serious import lo all ol
tbo municipalities upon tbu Nurlli
Shore
If this important nutter were under
the control of Ibe people whoso interests ire it slake, there is no duubt lhal
the municipalities concerned would pro
cced it once with tbe construction of
ap electric tramline to Hollyburn and
beyond and thtt iuch would prove the
chief highway of ptisenger travel to
tnd from those points, thus binding
together all portion! of tbe Norlli
Shore. Under oiiiting conditions however, it would appear lliut tbe people
must stand aside and calmly watch
tne development of t condition of tf-
ftirs wbicb wil) inevitably prove
harmful to t very great degree to tho
intereiti of tbe community tnd for
tbe sole reason tbtt it dues not suit
tbe convenience of tbt It. C. E, By.
I'ompaiiy te e»te;id tboir lines in nr
dtr to foster tbt undoubted Interests
of the community wbicb it ii presumed to terve.
Tin B. C. E. Hy, Company, it ,.
undented, bit beta offered a bonus
of »40/)00 by proptrty holders it the
coroptny would eitend Itt linp to
tbt weat ildt of tht Cipiltno, but tie
public tu wtittd in vtin for t favor
able roply.
Tht inwrporttori at Weit Vancou
ver' sought to procure tin yawing of I
bill of Incorporation on sucb terms as
would break the power of tho 1). C.
E, B. Cl. iu that portion of the district unit so leave thu people free to
provide their own transportation fa
cilities. This effort, however, wta
vigorously opposed liy the company
and thu mtiiiiliuii was legally such that
the bill hail lo be amended to protect
Iho company with rospoct to ils trims
porlatioii and ulher rights.
Att.eution has now beau directed to
the origiuul fruuehiau of the 1). C, E.
K. t'o., as granted by tho original district of North Vaueouver in the year
1005, the position having liccu ailvaiic-
od that the same is unsound. Should
legal tdvice support the contentions
miilo in this regunl Ihu situation will
fully justify a determined effort to
Secure thu extrication iif tbo miiuici-
palilies Irom present difficulties by
this aveuue.
Meantime riause 25 of lhe original
franchise gives the municipalities sume
sort of voice in the situation. The
clause provides as follows!
"Hii. In lhe event of the Corporation being desirous of having thc street
railway extended to rouda uther Iban
those firat liuill upon, Iho Company
shall be requested tu build and operate
such extension, and Ihu Company shall
have the option of building within
twelve nun,ib-. such extension on tbe
ttrmi und condltioni of tbii agrooincm.
Bul iu the event of the company refusing to build such extension within 12
n.iii.iii-- tho Corporttlon sliull tbu have
thu right to build Uie line and operate
it, and tho Company shall furnish to
tbe Corporation aud the Corporation
shall purchase from the t'ompauy the
necessary power for llic operation of
such line at a cpit of Iwo centi per
Kilowatt hour."
While it is i|Uiie evident lhat only
iu exceptional cuses would it bo feasible for lhe municipalities to proceed
under the abovo clause, and although
even in the presient instance its operation would necessitate a prolonged do
lay ami involve olher disabilities which
materially impair its usefulness, al Ihe
same time Ihe construction of this
trunk lino is a mailer uf such supreme
importance lo Ihu Nurlh Bbore that it
prescuts perhaps the most effective
mailable means of protecting the in
tercsls of thu ratepayers in particular
and of the public in general at tho
present juncture.

UAVhti BUOAB AS A aOMMmPlAt
PRODUCT
There aro very many residents nt the
weat wbo would readily admit a great
fpndneii for tbo prodtict of tho sugar
maple ao commonly produced in tbp
oaatern portions ot tbo Pomiploi). Tbe
tugar season it now at band in dis
tricta in which thit delicauy It produced and many will experience pleasure in recalling the familiar tcenes
which will abortly be enacted in tbe
"11111:111 bush" as thoy havo participated in tbem in years gone by.
While tbe manufacture ot maple sugar ia ordinarily only au incidental process in general farming oparatioua and
although it is largely followed rather
aa a matter of pleaaurablu employment
for othcrwiau idle daya ,the following
oicerpt from a paper read by Mr. Arch
ibald Iiln.', I.L.D., chief ofllcor of the
omnia and statistical oKico at Ottawa,
before lhe Annual Forestry cnuvoiitiuii
which recently coiiveued at Ottawa, will
io to show lhat thoro is a vory appro
iable commercial valuo attached to
thla familiar procosa. Mr. Blue oh
servesi ,
Wa can look back in Canada over
sixty years, and wo have rocords for
tbat time for tbo older proviucoa; ami
I ask this Association to look at ooun
of tho figures for that long period
Evory ton years wo take stock of llic
country; and in sixty years wo bavo the
data from which averages und totals
may bo prepared. Confining myself tu
maple sugar ouly, which is a bye-product uf Ibe proviuee, J find that the an
nual producliou of sixty years bas
reached from 10,1100,0011 to 86,000,000
pounds, tbo yearly iiveragc heiug about
18,600,0110 pounds and Iho aggregate
about 1,110,000,000 poundt, lu the
Maritimo provinces the yearly output
bas i..i.i;. excoeded half a million
pounds. But in Quebec and Onlariu
tbere are records of 88,000,000 pounds,
l.in.i yeur alono it was 81,000,000 pound
reckoning syrup at its equivalent in ,-u
gar.
In round numbera, the uggregate of
Ihu years 186161 ie 136,000,000 pounds,
wilh a share of 77,000,000 fur Quebec,
uud of 68,000,000 fur Ontario, lu the
years 1801 71, witb an aggregate of
176,0110,000 pounds, Quebec's portion is
estimated at 100,000,000 and Ontario's
at 66,11011,000. In thu uext decade, 1871
81, the aggregate rose to 18,000,000 Ihs.
with 188,000,000 for Quebec and 62,000,-
000 for Ontario, 1MM years 1881-91
show an aggrcgato of 886,000,000 His.,
with 176,000,000 in Quebec and 48,000,
000 in Ontario. For the fourth decade,
lbOl-1001, llic aggregate iH 212,000,000
pounds with 160,000,000 ia Quebec anil
18,000,000 in Ontario. lastly, f»r the
decade ending wilh the ceusus of lllll,
the aggregate production is 106,000,000
I'mums, giving Quehcs a portion of W,
000,000 and Ontario 60,000,000.
The average soiling price of maple su
gar Ihis period of sixty years has boon
aboul ten cents per pound, which would
give a value for lhe whole period of
more than 1110,000,000, representing tbo
labour of a few weeks in the spriug uf
•neb year when il can best bo opareil
from service ou the farm. The conservation of maple groves will therefore
a|,|ieUl tu every forest or and farmer in
the country.

Tt wai a joke, tbat. Horo wu I,

Gut pretty span I uw » wiy tq

I'd heat Fluette In the deal. It wan

I could get out from under without
It coating me a otnt, aod lUll make
Fluette and tb* world believe tbat I
pad bought tba ruby.
j "Nice tbing for Uie Paternoitroi,"
aaya I, "when all tbli comes out."
Crlaolano turned green. He begged
me not to tell. Hi promised me the
pick ot bli garni It I'd only keep tbe
lecret. •  -
I looked at bim pretty Mur. "Very
well." uyi I at lut. "You give me
Uie Imitation itone. I'll never dlicloie
Uie (act that you didn't bave Ibe original ruby, It you will announce to the
world that li wu iold to me for 1600,-
000. Ai long aa you Iteep your mouth
ihut, I'll keep mine."
He wu tickled to death. Nothing
would do but he muit hive In tbe reit
oil the Hun (bit brother and coualn).
Wben tbey came I bad a written contract prepared (or them, setUng fori Ii
Uie terms of pur agreement and binding tbem with a penalty heavy to keep
Ihem (rom blabbing. (Contract memo,

How long we remained silent lu the
fldlt of a speechless wonder, I liavn't
e leut Idea. Wordi were wholly
adequate even (eebly to expreu lhe
mingled (eellngi with which we ilowly dlgoated the full force and Import
of tbia remarkable doculncni.
Bo (be very heart and eaaence of the
tragedy, tbe crlmion woof lhat knitted
together the dark warp of Iti fabric,
bad all along been unreal and without
lubitancol or a gem that can not be
applied to Ita ordained function can
scarcely be aald to have an eilatenco.
Yet the Patamoiter ruby bad been potent to project Its maleficent Influence
from the depth! of Ita watery grave,
ud shape tbe deaUnlea ol the living.
Verily, Fate never played a grimmer
|oke.
My thought, drifted back to tho
Bight of the murder. Why bad Felix
Pago pauied beilde the tabic while going between the hidden .afe and Mall-
lot, who wu watting In tbo library?
I could Imagine only one expluatlon:
H be puied Uie table be wu aleted
with a eu&du Impulie to Impart tha

But a leooml thought had prevailed.
He ploked up the box wd proceeded
nn his way.

Ja .my itemlder, mi. without looking

muit bayo occurred to tbe reader ere
thla:
"Full muy a gem pt  pureit   ray
lerene
Tba' dark, unfatbomed cava* ot
ocau boar."
I mention the clrcumituce became
It prompted u Idea which suddenly
•et nip to laughing. Qenevleve looked
at me In alarm.
1 "Wbat In Ihe world I" ibe marvelled, (or the alienee bad been very m-
date.
"Utile girl," I at lut enlightened
her, "it will pay you io go with me
when we leave horp to tbe Central

uu to enjoy together; It will compensate (or a doal of your late trouble
ond anxiety."
I   "Wbat la It?"
"I want to hand Aleiander Burke

watch hlm while bo r*adi."
I meant to do It, too. But Qenevleve (ailed to enter Into the spirit of
Uie suggoiUon.
"Mercy!" alio ibuddered. "I don't
wut to glout ovor Uie poor wretch."
I tald no more about It, but—well,
the result waa all that I bad anticl-
patod.
Qenevleve reminded me that wa
ihould be thankful for having been relieved from a dual perplexity.
"I don't iiiiiliii-aiaiid." laid I.
"Why, we haven't the ruby to dl*-
poie nl; that would bave puzzled oveu
you."
"I don't know about that. Royal

Ibouiud—whewl"
Suddenly ahe inuggled cloier and
claiped her handi tightly upon my
ihouldor. Hor haJr teased my cheek,
and tho delicate perfume of It made
mi' lightheaded. Twitting her pretty
head sideways, ihe (lashed u arch
look at ine from under her la.be.,
thou glanced quickly away again.
Blue eyei and long dark laabei are a
potently dieturblug combination.
