THE G.T.P. AND
THE NORTH SHORE
'I'he rumor has ngnin heen revived
that thero in a pruliuliilily that thu
Grand. Trunk Pacific Huilwny will
reach Hurrard Inlet via Howe Sound
and Nnrth Vuneouver. H i». stated
tbat tho survey Irom Fort George
down the Lillooet river thenee nlong
Harrison Lake und via the Frosiir river to Vuneouver is now complete nnil
. has developed features which point to
tho Howe Sound route us a likely improvement and tbat in consequence a
corps ol engineers will be placed in the
licld to survey tho latlor route. It is
asserted that Ik following tbe Howe
Hound route ahout sixty miles cun be
saved as to distance and it is likewise anticipated that considerably bet.
ter conditions cun be obtained as to
grades and cost of construction. While
no authority is quoted lor this report
it is, nevertheless, lully in lino wilh
the information given ,i representative of tho Express by Mr. Chamberlin
of thc Orund Trunk Pacific when ho
was last in Vuneouver to tlic effect
thnt it wus impossible to stute wl|at
the Curry dry goods store, tho drivui
being inside, when ilm hprses fjocatni
frightened and dashed down T-onudali
Avenue and on to tho wharf. Apparently not seeing the high iron gates
which aro erected thu entire width
of tho wharl until ii was too late, to
avoid a collision the team attempted
to jump over bul tbo height wus too
great and the net work ol iron rods
comprising tho centro lift gave way
belore tho impact and horses, gate un I
wagon piled up in onu hoap. Tbt
horses legs hud become so entungled
in Hie gate that it was only with difficulty that they wero sepuratcd. An
I'xniiiiiiiitiiw of tbo animals showed
that they had been badly cut about
the hood and legs but bad not sustained any permanent injuries. Tbo
wagon inniiui: was brokon und tho
gate considerably twisted. Thc latter was. promptly straightened oui
and wus in place and working within
an hour alter thc accident.

On applying to Dr. 0, Gordon Hewitt, Dominion Entomologist, bs io t'w
fork tlint the lidiiml iliiiiiirtiiii'iil. of
Agriculture were doing in regard to
the Spruce Budworm (Tortrix (umifor-
una), he made the following statement
to the Canadian Forestry Association;
'The attention ol the' department
Kits first called to sorione utlmis of
this insect in the upper, datinoai) region ol Quebec by Ihu Hon. VI. C. Ed
wards. Mr. Arthur Gibson, chiel assistant entomologist of the division of
entomology was immediately sent lo
investigate the outbreak ili lilly,
llUlil, und ho has already commun.'at-
ed an account of his invcstigaiim to
tho Canadian Forestry ilournal (December mon).
'In October, 1WI9, a lew weok«"aftei
taking charge ol the work oTlho division ol entomology, I visited liriiish
Columbia and investigated tbe nttucks
ol the bisect on Vancouver Island.
Thu serious character of the stuck ol
the Spruce lludwium tin the balsam
and spruce in Eastern Canada and tho
Douglas fir in British Columbia, rendered a careful study ol tbe insect
its depredations and cuntrolling agencies imperative, and accordingly saicb
u study was commenced. During the.
present 'summer (1910) the line of investigation that we have been lollowing has been U> discover thc species
of parasites uttui'king the past-Jnlhc
case ol an outbreak ol this nHi),
when the insect bas gained great headway, belore Its discovery, und where it
is impracticable to adopt any/ means
ol control, thc most important and
only iin a iii'..ii..11 possible is a study
of the species of the purasitcs which
ure tho natural menns nl control, attacking iIn■ .,iia i].ili.u.. with a vi:w
to discovering: lirsl, whut species
there ure, und secondly, whether they
ure increasing in numlier. This information is of very great Importance
and value, not only from a scientific
but also from a pructical point ol
view, as the following insluncc of a
similar study will show. In England,
a serious outbreak nf the Lurch Saw-
Hy wus reported in 1SI06. (This is the
suine inject wbiili destroyed all the
lurch or tnmarack thrnigiinul
Eastern (unnda some years
ago, und again uppcurcd ubout
five yeurs ogo.| In the lollowing yeur
I begun to study the lifebislo.-y of
Iho insect und its p.u.i ii. Excepl
in newly plunled urcus it wus n.it | is-
sililc lo udopl'jjipy means of control.
It wns (omul in I'"'- thul a icrtiin
species ol ichneumon Ily, an import.int

of tlic insects; in tbe lollowing ynr
the pen-ontuge kill.il bud Increased lo
ubout Iwelvo |ier cent. 1 then left
England und rninu lo Canada, but lo
continue the investigation ninny tho*
sunds ol tho cocoons were imported
from Irn,- l.i ini. und this year 1 lound
thai the percentage ol insects n the
cocoons killed by the purusita.'s was
over IK) per rani. This discovery,
wliirli was ulso confirmed in Engl ind,
is (if the gieulivi interest and iinnoit
unce as it indicates that in 'Oo • In.
ealilies, where the infestulia>n wus
most serious the purusiles' hive almost gaimil rompletc control ol tin'
sawHy, and control will mean eradication. The practical value of this continued study lies in the faet that '.ho
own. i... of timber feartd its destruction by the . ..nin..ml defoliation by
the culcrpillure, many acres having
been so killed, und were cutting 4own
limber More il bud reached its lull
growth und vnluc to sayc it. This
will now lie unnecessary, as we know
the pest will |,e controlled by its parasites. In a similar manner we have
already begin a study ol the parasites
ol lhe .Spruce Budworm and we ho|w,
next y4ar, to study the percenluge M
eutcrpillurs ullurkcd by the species of
purasitcs that wc huve bred Irom Ihem
during the present season. It il ex-
pea hi) thut such an investigation will
indicate to us tlie extent to which
n. i ni nl means ol control are acting
upon tiie p. .1 and until we have audi
information it is impossible to prophesy whut the results ol the outbreak will be and whether considerable

ol films that have reached tho voqy
zenith of popularity with the public.
The scene ol tbe first drama ii laid
in tbe Canadian Kockies. The hi llu

years with whom two trainmen, .foe
Alien and Albert Uill are in love. It
soon develops umi the former is the

agent slips her hund into Joe's leuves

story. .
"The Maid of Niuguiu" is a depie-
lion of un old legend of the fulls. One
of the chiefs of the Iroquois tri lie refuses the reipiest of Esoomgit (or the
hand of his dauglitei lied Doe, because thc dinner is not <u chief. At a

NEW
ENACTMENT   HE   SUBDIVISIONS
The present session ol tho provincial
house hus resulted in several   amendments to thu Municipal Clauses Act,
one   ol   which    makes   a   material
change in the regulutiuns with respect
to tho subdividing ol land.    The new
regulation provides that no iuiicl shall
bo divided into parcels ol less than five
wei, that no plan ol any such subdivision shnll bu registered,   thut   n'i
application for uny sueh registration
shull be received or such registration
mude "unless Ibe title to such land or
registered pared  shall have   been   le-
gistored in the register of indefeasible
foes."
iiiiiiiiiii it bus   Imu llie  practise
that each proposed plan of subdivision
must bo signed liy lhe person   holding
tbe title to uny properly in fee   sim
plo   but    umler   this new   regulation
thnt liile must iw changed to un   indefeasible   title,   before   such subdivi-
tion can be effected.    The pro'.ms involved il thut nn application for   an
in'la fi'ic ihii   litln must bu niuile to the
registrar and .. fee of live or six dollan for the muiic musl lie paid. -  Tlie
result   will Iw   thul (he title will  be
made nlu.ilm. I)  clear and the property will Ik- broughl under tliu   Torrene
system us uduplcd uud applied b) (he

the financial returns would lie iuch as
to well repay any expense tbat might
be involved in eitabliihing or in maintaining an office, while the advantage
ol such an arrangement to the general

It is to be hoped that tbe facilities
provided with regard to land registration will be placed and will be kept
well in advance of the demands created by such regulations as may be
made from time to time.
u»e Pl general Ming Is diverted
from the shops of the local merchants,
li it not « faet that this pwtlee Involves a principle that in Its logical
ending puts the local merchant nut of
buemees and leaves tho public at
the mercy .of the big retail corporations. It ie true that the local merchants may struggle along and succeed in staying in business, notwithstanding thii serious loai ol patronage, but the feet remains novorthelmi
that the essential principle involved
in out-ol-town trading is inimical alike
to the interests ol tbe local merchant
and to the real Interests of local pur
chasers themselves. Money placed
with ' the local merchants meant
honest goods at fair prices and at the
■nme time buys lor the publie effective
nisuranco that prices will be maintained upon thii equitable baiii,

THE
LOCAL MERCHANT
TECTS THE PUBLIC
PRO-
A   local   store  may   be  either one
that   raters to the population   ol   a
comparatively smuli community, or a
"imi.  thut   outers to only a  portion
ol tlio population of a big city, while
in .'outlast with these locul establishments there are immense concerns that
carer to tho entire population of' the
largest centres und which extend their
operations  throughout an entire province and Iwyond.   Every astute buyer,   whether   his punhuses   ure modi
only for himsell or for herself or fm
an   cntiic   family   will   recognize   thn
fait thut it would prove very  unfortunate if these big concerns were   In
succeed iu driving the locul merchants
out ol i.ai. in,     aiid thus monopolise
lhe retail trniliag.    When the  mallei
is viewed in its proper light il is tin
locul dealer   who protects   the .buying
public iu the mutter of prices. On Ihe
one hand  tlie local deuler desires  lo
procure (he lurges( possible amount of
custom while on the olher hand  it is
ie •. .■ ■ ui \   that he should transact   iiis
business upon u basis ol profit   that
will enuble him lo proceed   on   sound
business   principles.     His   prices   arc
therefore based on the lirst cost ol (lie
goods plus the ucuissury expenses   ol
operation of the business.     To    this
l'i....   cost ho adds u fair p> i  centage
of prolit und offers the goods to llie
public ul the price whiah results. Tins
is the only method by which a   merchant   can do business upon a   basis
fair al once to the public and to him
self.   Tile' big mercantile concern,   operated on a joint stock basis must of
necessity reckon on uttracting ... large
portion of ils trade, from whut would
in the ordinury channels of   business,
find its   way to   the locul   menhunl
and one method of doing this   which
is very couipicuous, is tho practise of
underselling tho local deuler.      While
price asked by the local menhunt
is   the  lair  price  and   the   uecesiury
prico   in   order  to' do  business   on
a sound baeis, the concern currying u
multitude of lines ol merchandise (an

some in i ides   and charge the   ; tnbie
thus sacrificed to advertising account,
on account ol the trade attracted   in
tbat particular line and the additional trade secured at tbe same time in
other lines.    All the time, however, it
is tbe legitimate price set by Hie  local merchant which control! the situation nnd which protect* the   public
Irom higher pricei.  If the local   merchant were removed it ii safe to ssy
tbat pricei would speedily dev, 'op   e
decided upward tendency. ' But how is
the local merchant to be kept in Lusi-
nets and how is hc lo lie enabled to

the matter ol prieee  except the loeal
purchasing public manifest en  appreciation of their own interests by patronizing tbat local merchant ?    IA it

specific article by pawing by llie local merchant in lavor ol outside con-

he thought the lime was nunc when

pitied lo surrender the sumo u'J a

diollenge fo Ottawa tq submit the a-
lirei'lucnl in a referendiiiii to the people
at large. On w*h a 'Vote British Columbia's 40 to 1 would*certainly count
n little.
With so much discussion on other
subjects tho advance in legislation
during the weok was naturally not
very murked, but lor tho coming weok
the slate is fairly clour for bills and
rapid progress should he made till the
close of the session.
It must have been ol interest to the
people ol North Vaniouver to learn
that the bill ol thu Grouse Mountain
Scenic Incline Railway Co. had passed
third reading und that when the Itail
ter was received stating ilmi the up-
wuy Committee unci Inst Tuesday a lei ■
plication ol Ihe Grouso Moiinluin
iScenio Rnilwuy Cnmpuny had
lieen withdrawn. This leuves tbo
ground clour lor the one company tn
complete its project which should
prove much easier now that there is
no rival company to depreciate its at-
eiirities on the bond market.
There aro still several important
bills to be introduced notably .the
Trust Companiei Aot, and tlie Pulse
Creek Agreement Hill, both of which
will be mila.alu. a .I this week by Attorney-General 'Bowser. There is also
quite a lurge number ol minor incus-
mes still oil the urder puper which it
is calculated will keep the bouse in
session till Mnrch 1. There seems In
be little chniice ul the Smith Vancouver bill being brought in this session
so thut it is evident thai thai distri. I
will huve to wuil another yeur liefon
