The following is a report of the
work of the Joint Civic Advertising
Committee for three mouths eliding
July Hist, mil!, as submitted by Mr.
William i n-.'.ii i. publicity commissioner, lo the public bodies oi this city:
"The work tbat bas beeu done so
far, iu tbe way of publicity for tbe
North Shore bus, I believe, beeu very
satisfactory, all things considered.
"It is loo soon yet to expect very
many results, iu fuct, it is hard at auy
time, to trace direct results, but I am
convinced thul the work we bate al
ready accomplished will lie of consider
able l.eneiit to our community.
"The entertainment iu a public way
of the i mule Auto Club and of the
small party of Ihe British Mauufac
turers will, I believe, du a great deal in
bringing uur city and districts tu Hie
notice of the outside world. I may
say tbat I knuw persuually uf several
parlies thai have visited the '.mil
Bbure as a direct result uf the visit uf
the Seattle Auto Clulr lu Ibo"mutter
of the liritish Manufacturers, it is uu
fortunate that mure uf this party did
not visit us, and in this connection, J
must suy that the peuple wbu were in
charge uf the purty rendered mc very
little, if uuy, assistance iu gelling the
number uver thut ttc did, though they
pionii -ml tu arrange the parly fur us,
iu fuct thc few that we were able tu
bate visit us I gut myself. Those who
did make the trip, however, went away
very eulhusiastic regarding the Nurth
Bbure ami its possibilities uud I am sure
thut as the result of their visit wc mil
ublaiu good results,
,"The literature that wc have dis
nil,uied up lo Hie present lias already
begun to bear fruit, and I hate ob
tame,I several enquiries frum uutside
points that arc directly traceable lu
this mii,','. though it is really too soou
lu expect returns from these booklets.
In regard lo thc distribution of these
pamphlets, 1 umi say thai 1 have sent
a large number uf tbis literature for
distribution to a great many points
holh in l-TiTuo Cauada and the United
States, as well as to Oreat Britain,
Australia, Honolulu, New Zealand, etc.
I ulso made arrangements with lbc
managers of the tour of thc Vaueouver
cadets lo distribute our literature iu
Australia and furnished them with one
ihuusiiiol uf our two small folders, 1 and
.', as well as a quautlly of the old fold
ers coulaining maps and one hundred
copies of tbe special edition of, the
"Kxpress." I consider Ibat the disfri-
I,ulmi we will obtain through this
channel will be very beneficial as Ihe
members of tbo corps will be billeted in
tbe private homes of the people wherever they visit, so that our literature
will be placed in good hands.

I consider, good publicity.
"One mailer of importance that I
was able to arrange for was the taking
uf a number uf muting pictures of tbe
Norlli Shore. These were token by a
purty under Mr. Hcury Hibbcrt of

North  Vaueouver haa been greatly
honored  ill  liuillg  accorded  a place ill
the itinerary of the Dubs aud the
Duchess of Cuntiaught upou the occa
sion of Iheir approachiug visit to this
province. This gracious act upou the
part of their Royal Highnesses will be
highly appreciated by all citiaeus of
'   the North Shore.
Tito visit wili constitute the must
notable event which has as yet trans
pired al North Vaueouver and it gues
wilbuut saying that uu effort will be
spured in mm,i,I a most cordial welcome
lo the royal visitors, ami tu characterise
ihe occasion liy the most enthusiastic
expressions of loyalty.
The imui committee appointed liy the
respective public bodies already lieye

gramme will necessarily be short auil
will lie designed to maiie the very beat
use of every moment from the arrival
to the departure of the royal party.
The ' .uiiiiilii.',- will, without doubt, receive the must zealous co operation upon
the part of the citiaeus iu tbe matter
of deeoiaiioiis, and in every possible
I ..in, nlai iii order tu enhance to the ut
most the success of the occasion.
Although the conference committal of
the senate ami congress of the United
Stales have formulated a repurt which
modifies the bill passed by the seuate
menacing the equal rights of all nations
in using Panama caual, it ia at the aame
Iuue reported that the rejiurt will meet
wiih opposition ami it is, therefore, yet
doubtful whether eveu thc single amend
iiieul made in this particular will pic
There is probably no periodical published in the i nu,,i States whose im
llucuce is more potent with thut portion

in passing u bill discriminating in favor

"The abuve quotation is from a
"treaty concluded in Ilml between tbe
"United simes aud Great Britain,
"known as thu 'Hay Pauucefote
"Treaty,' iu which, in consideration of
"certain .on,-, ion- made by Ureal
"Britain ,Hie United Slates agreed
"among other tilings, to operate Ihe

"gai,in the ships of all uations making

"There ia uow before Congress a bill

"sophistry. Specious catchwords and
"misleading phraseology may easily
"divert the minds of a busy people
"from the real points at issue in a can
"trpversy of thii kind."
Afler dealing specifically with some
of the specious argumeuts referred to,
tbe editorial concludes as fuilows:
"The coustructiou of tbe Panama
"Caual must rank as the greatest
"achievement of a physical character
"that has over been undertaken and
"successfully put through by the
"United States. We bave gained an
"enviable reputation thereby, ami iu

In these sauu counsels the great body
of interested oulookers outside the hor
ders of the United States will readily
believe that the Scieutific American haa
voiced ihe seuliments of the right-
thinking citizens of tbat uatiou and
they will entertain the hope that liiml
legislation will eryetalizo those seuti
merits iii a form such as will cuustitute
an honorable observance of the solemn

Athletic Club Concert
and Dance
The illuchuu refreshment rooma, Duu
darave, were on Wednesday uight the
scene of a successful concert and dance
given under tbo auspices of the West
Vancouver Athletic Olub.
Mr. W. A. Davis was chairuiau and
opened tho eveuiug witb a brief but
interesting history of tbe Athletic
Club. He stated that tho membership
had grown from four or five wheu tbe
club waa first authorised two yean ago
to it. This, be thought, was a splendid
record in view of tbo fact tbat tbo district of West Vancouver bad only come
iuto prominence during this summer. He
invited any youug men prcseut to join
tbo physical training claasos which will
be carried ou during the winter mouths.
Tlte subsequent cutortainment'was a.
great success, over 100 persons being
present.' The various items of tbo musical program which followed, wore greeted with much applause uud tho dauciug
was entered iuto with a hearty spirit.
Tbe entertiiinnieni committee had arranged to servo refreshments out ou
tbe grounds, but owing to the rain they
had lo change their plans and serve
it within doors. The committee wish
to thauk all who were kind enough
either to contribute on the programme
or to provide some of Ihe refreshmcnls,
A ferry which derives its motive
power directly; from the slreuin in
which it operates is employed at Clarks
vllle, T'eiin, where tbe Cumberland
river llows north with a broad curve to
the west ami thus throws the main
current uear the cast bauk, uu which
thc city is situated. Thc ferry boat is
fastened by a wire cable 1,000 feet
long, to the west abutment of thc Louis
ville ami Nashville Railroad bridge,
which spaus tbe river above tho town.
Thc ferryboat is a liat bottomed barge
18 feet wide by Cl feet loug and will
carry five teams. Ou the upstream side
ii a movable vauc or Iceboard, aboul
.'I feel deep, which may be lowered so
as to give thc current a greater bear
iug against thc side of Iho boat The
vane is in nin die. I by one of a puir uf
bandwbeels. About the axle of Iho
other wheel four or five torus in the
middle of a I Mi inch rope are taken,
tbe ends beiug carried over sheaves
near the opposite ouds uf the boat to
connect with the steel cable at a point
30 feet or 40 feel upstream. By turn
ing oue of lbc wheels the ferryman
cau throw oue eud of the barge up
stream, causiug Ihc current tu strike
against the side of thc boat ami lu
propel il across thc stream iu the arc
of a circle iu which il ia held by  the
stool cube. The ferry |i OPUItlA »t #||
stages of the river up to lii feet. The
river is from 600 feot to 7(P foot wide,
according to tbe tide. Although the
cost of operation as a free ferry by
the county, including interest on the investment, salary of the ferryman, do
proclatiou and repairs on boats apd ap-
prouehes, is about 11,(00 g year, it is
much cheeper than a bridge, wbicb

dlferent occasions, the most celebrated
was the greal siege in 1 iib ti, when the
combined forces of France and Spain
made a tremendous effort to recover
It; but It was maguilici'iilly defended
for uearly foor yeSrs liy General
Klliott. The floating batteries lhat
could, so tbe besiegers said, neither be
burnt, sunk, uor taken, wete all either
burnt, sunk or takon.
During tbe siege there were somo
wonderful escapes. A shell blew an
old woman out of a window, but sbe
un.hniiu.I no Inni i.e;.un.I a few bruises. Auotber shell, bursting, fractured a soldier's head, broke au arm iu
two places, one of his legs and a Auger; but he bad so good i constitution
tbat in eleven weeka he recovered,
Scurvy caused many more deaths
tban the enemy 'i Ore.     Fortunately
nor said "NoWi my friind, give ma your
muskot, and I will fpUovb ypu; go u\n]_
have ypur wounds dreamed."
Stories pf tin Blags
During the destruction of tbi Sp*. .
ish batteries the same genera' 'n.tnd a
captain of tljo Spanish artillery dreadfully wounded. He ordered liim to be
removed to a Place nf safety; but tb"
Spaniard exclaimed, "Nniir—nni l°avo
mo, and lut me perish umi.I the runis
of my post I" In a few minutes he
died. It was afterwards found that he
had commuiidoil tbe guard of uue of
the batteries, and. thit when his men
tied ho rushed forward intn tho attacking column, exclaiming "At least ope
Spaniard shall die honorably."
Many traditions and traces of tbis
lusl uud greatest singe rciuiin, Aftor
it was ended the Spanish cmitt'oiider-
in-chief visited the fortress and sniii
tu somo British artillery officers who
wero presented to llllll, "Gentlemen, I
would rather seo you boro us friends
thuu on your batteries as ebonies,
where you never spared mo."
Whdti he wus condueto.i through ouo
of tho gallorios, he exclaimed. "Their
works ure worthy of thu Romans."
One buttery so unuoyod thu Spanish
that they called it L'euga del Diabln,
and this name of Devil's Tougile is
still givon to a pluee nt the end of the
Old Molo, The guns un eveu tho
highest poiut of the Bock wuru frequently di: iuuu ut e.l by tho enemy's
lire during the siege.
In Spain King Charles asked every
morning, "Is it takeu!' and lo thu negative he uei er failed to reply, "It
will soou be ours." We ull kuow tho
legend of Iho Queen' of Spaiu guying
that she would uot leave thc muuu'tuiii
overlooking Uibrullar until the fortress
wus taken and of Ihe Governor allow

a few minutes su lhat she could leave

A Smuggler'! Paradise
lu time of peace Gibraltar is the
parudiae uf Ihc smuggler, fur uu tbe
uther side of Ihe neutral gruuud lies
the Spanish town of Liuea de la Concep

masons, navvies, laborers, aud even
the domestic servants employed on the
Rock. Thero is one roud ouly bul
ing frum Gibrullur tu Lineu, with
nun th ground ou either side. This
is the neutral territory. On the British iiues uro British soldiers occupy
ing sentry boxes every few Iiundred
yards. Spanish soldiers having corres
ponding sentry boxes ou tbu otber side
of the zone, which is about a mile iu
width. Across Ihis neutral ground the
Spunish smugglers ruu the gauntlet, uut
by themselves, but by means of trained
dugs, which curry prohibited guuds under u false euut of hair.
Every murniug at daybreak a few

to cam their living on thc Bock, uml ,

Locking tlie Gatea
iTiL.ij the favorite sight of Gibraltar is thc daily processiou at »un
dowu fur the luckiug of Ihe towu gules.
The keeper ol Ihc keys, looking very
like u prisoner despite bis uniform,
marches thruugh Iho towu in the centre of a military guard, proceeded by
u regimental bund, whieh |,luys Ihspir
iug uud familiar tunes. The keys, uf
enormous sile, ure borne uluft before
bim as un "iniiin,I and visible emblem
ol the vigilance treasure.
On arming ut the gates Ihe guard
salutes, Ihc murtial strains strike up
with a redoubled peau of triumph,
while thc great doors slowly swing tu,
and arc suletnuly lucked for thc night.
Theu right ubuut turn, aud Ibe pru
anion marches back to headquarters
lo deposit thc keys iu the Goveruor's
keeping, conveying by its passage uu
assurance to Ihe people aud garrison
Ibat they may rest iu peace.
Once thc gates arc abut, it were cas

eye of a needle tbau for auy uuaulhor
