lu be pul through it will be loo late
to grade Ibo itreet this full and those

Aid. Frucr declared lbat he had
been Ibe only one of late wbo had
tried lo got this thing settled. He did
nut understand why lbc mutter had
so suddenly to bo rushed through in
ono nigbt. If you grade and niaca
'ii'ini.'i the street for 80 feet Ihtl
wil) stop the widening fur years, he
said.

Individually, he was iu favor of widen

himself in uuy way.
Aid. Diss: "Wc cau gu uheud with

Aid. Foreman then wanted tu knuw
why the mailer could uut be lefl uver

year.
Aid. Fruaer said this was uot neces
aary. Tbe difference had already been
estimated at 11,000.
Aid Biss suggested leaviug the wulln

EFFECT OF BBIDOB PIBBS ON CUE
BBNT AT BBOOND NABBOWS
The Shipmasters' Association of Vancouver is manifesting au ingenuity,
worthy of a better caute in the matter
of devising alleged reasons for objecting to tbe construction of a bridge at
Second Narrows. The lookout has recently reported another danger ahead iu
the' discovery that the conitructlon of
a,bridge at Socond Narrows will cause
n  .1,1, inlil,   increase iu the current
at that point and with this is coupled
the further formidable difficulty that if
u train should he passing over the draw
when a ship wanted to go through,
the Bhlp would find it necessary to wait
until the train bad passed over, This
bitter opinion presents a masterpiece
of ii:. "iiiu,-, the force of whicii is so
great thut if it wore to prevail, tbe remit wuuld lie not only tho effectual
blocking of the proposed bridge at Second Narrows but a similar calamity to
every bridge ill creation, that is designed tu span navigable waters, Modem
engineering skill lias accomplished some
most wonderful feats, but it has nol
yet beeu successful in evolving a type
of bridge which will allow a train lu
cruss the draw ami a vessel to pass
Ihruugli Ihc draw at une and the samo
time Kegrettable as tho circumstances
may appear, it nevertheless must be
acknowledged that tho world over wher
ever a railway and traffic bridge crosses
navigable waters, tbe two kinds of
traffic find it neceasary to accommodate
themselves to one another's convenience to a greater or lesaer extent. It
ban remained however for tho Ship
masters' Association of Vaueouver to
arrive at the startling conclusion that
I,cm.,, of thia fact uu bridges with
draws shuuld be built.
The exact  mathematical  row1	
niii,'-   to the effect of the propose*
piers ou the force of the current af
Second Narrows msy|be read in the re
port uf au interview with Mr. Donald
I'unieruu, t.'.E., which appears in anotber
column of this issue. From the prsdi
cul viewpoint, Ihe lay Ini ml will find u
comparison  helpful. The  Fraser  river
bridge is a railway and traffic brTlgi-
:| .inning a rapidly  fiuwiug navigable
slream  tbe draw uf  which,It passed
lliruugli  by  a  large and  steadily  in
creasing number of steamships and sail
ing vessels uf sll kinds.   No cumplaiuls
am In in.l huwever as lo auy ships col
liiliug with the piers of the bridge or
as lo any ships being seriously Incog
veiiienccd  through  wailiug  for trains
lo cross, neither is there any evidence
lliut anybody considers that tbo bridge
lias made navigation serious in its vicinity, lu point uf fad one of the lar
goat  transportation companies, namely
Hie i an,i,imu  Northern Railway Com
puny, has located one of its new town
..ites above the Fraser river bridge and
if all or any large portiou of all that
is said of (lie intentions of this company
relative  to   Port   Mann,   matcrialir.es,
Mien   the' railway  trallic  over  Fraser
river   l.niljf-   and   tbe   water   traffic
iiirougli the bridge is destined to as
time very large proportions,   i'l   the
expert*of the Oanadian Northern (bow
Imi tbey evidently differ widely there
in from the Shipmasters' Association of
Vaueouver)  do uot appear to be of
opiuion that they have committed any
error in judgment iu locating tbe towu
site above tbe bridge.
'I'lu- burlesijue has about reached the
point at which it is in order for some
cheerful jukcr to conic furward with tbe
suggestion that au aeroplane ferry ser
vice lie substituted for the proposed
bridge at Secoud -Narrows,
EQUAL KIUHTS OF ALL NATIONS
IN  PANAMA CANAL
The recent action o/ tht .United
States governmeut iu legislating to re
mil all lolls to United Statea veaaels
engaged iu the coast wise aud foreign
trade, through the Panama Canal gives
promise of developing into au issue of
worldwide importance. A abort re
view of tbe provleloaj of tbe lity
Pauucefote treaty aud the circum
ataucea leadiag up to it will be of iu
lerett.
By the Hay Pauucefote treaty
Great Britain renounce,I the right,
guaranteed by tbe ''laytou Bulwer
treaty to join witb lhe United
States iu tbt construction aud control of aay canal wbicb mignt be
constructed uniting tbe water of tbt
Atlantic and the Pacific octant.
According to tba terma of tbe
treaty as signed by tbe negotiators
on February t, 1000, the United
States agreed to uuite with Great
Britain iu guaranteeing the,neutral
Ity of the caual, and to invite other
nations to join iu the guarantee, The
latter provision aroused a great deal
of opposition in the Unitud States
and accordingly the treaty was
amended by Ihe Seuato so as to leave
with the Unitod States the right of
inaiitaiiiiiig tho neutrality of tba
canal, aud specifically abrogating the
iTnvToii HiilvMi treaty. The treaty
thus ainen,led was rejected by Ureat
Britain, March 11, 1001. A new
treaty was nugutiatod the same year
and signed ou November 18, providing fur Iho abrogation of the i'Iuv
tun -Bulwer treaty, and assuring lu
tbe United States solo control of the
laiial and solo right of maintaining
its neutrality. The Unitod Slates, on
tlie other hand, engaged tu adopt sub
stauljally the name rules governing
tbo . nimI rights uf all nations iu the
navigation of the caual as govern
the navigation uf tbe Suez i uunl
The further provision was Incorporated iu tbe treaty that uo change
iu Ihe sovereignly uf the territory
traversed by the canal should aller
tbe principle of neutrality, and of
"liml lights uf all iiiiiiiiiii. and tu
enjoy the benefits of the canal, lu
tbu. form the treaty was acceptable
tu Oreat Britain, and it was ratified
liy the United Slates Senate on In
comber 16, 1001.
From a careful perusal uf the above,
it will lie seen that the action of the
United Statea governmeut involves
ijucstioua uf national honor and raises
i.'"ii". of crucial importance among na
tioni.
The bellicose statement of Seualor
luinunns to the effect that war must
lie the tinal arbiter in tbe matter
buns the complexion uf an admiisiun
of breach of faith upuu the part uf the
United Slates which considers it,elf
safe, for Ihe reason that under prcaeut
lay .siiui,lur,Is the issue would not lie
oiisiilereil -iiili, nnt tu justify the pre
i-ipilatiun of war especially between the
Iwu greal  AngluSatun uatious.
The assertion einauating fruin a lin
tish .-,,,ii, ■•■ that Ihc general adoption of
such au attitude in international rela
tluimhlpa would throw the wurld back
a century is quite within the mark. In
fast, lbe repudiation of a duly signed
treaty between Iwo naliuus upon the
I .ui of either part-, thereto is an act
so extremely rare among civilised na
imn.- lhat ils occurrence euuld never
be considered as among the possibil
ties.
The president has not as yet affiled
his signature to the bill just petted
by tbt senate of tbe United
males aud it is safe lo say that he
would ,,,0,11111 n.i the a,iiniuii no, of uosts
of the i ill/ens oi the country of which
he ia the executive head—cilixcui who
bave high eouecplious of personal aud
uf national honor and would be sc
luun..I by the world at large if he
were tu decliue to give his consent to
the measure

And now the young woman on tba

thure and faces the picture-machine,
while the young Indian retires a few

stands with his baud an thu crunk,
while the director etuuds nuarj and

And at lhat the paleface maiden

Indian, and hu jumps for the horse's

i.,i, liim with thie sort of work you
ihiuk that's pretty good, but "No,"
says the stage director. "It wou't do,
Wu've gut tu do better than that.'"
And with that, without a word from
cither, ilu young woman turns and
Iruls Ihu liiiiiiiii back up thu glade
ugain, while thu Indian brave again
retires to the forest.
"Are you ready I" says the boss.
"Now!"
And down the gludu again rushes
lliu palcfacu maiden on the ruiiuway

springs Ihu youug Indiuii brave; and
uuiu more hu jumps fur and hu guts
lhe horse'a head, and stups him; vury
well indeed us it seems tu the passing

"It wunT do," says the director, not
u liil sourly, with perfect guud humor,
bul »sill decisively. "Wu'vu gul tu

Ami Ihun In the yuung lady sitting
