^FERRY MATTERS DIS-
,     CUSSED IN CITY HALL
Three Important Resolutions Carried — Temporary Schemes Disfavored,
\rt

t
St
A meeting pt importance took placo
h jf' tbe city ball ou Tuoadny, presided
rTJyer by Mayor McNeish ami attended
by a lair number ol ratepayers.
Tbe evening was miserably in 'loinont
_ anil twenty minutes' grace was given
for late couiotH arrival .luring which
perioil a lively impromptu ilebate look
place on whether or not brains uml a
lialsl hcail can lie concurrent posses
S|pns, The discussion was showing
au nfllrrautivo toudoncy when the mayor I'lilli'sl thu meeting to ur.lur ami
tbo gathering sottleil .lown sijuarely to
business.
His Worship briefly outlined the
reasons for which Ihu meeting hail
been callcil ami summarised the controversy on forry matter* which has
for *ome time been in promiiieuco.
Mr. tl. C. Wright, president of the
Ratepayer*' Association, called upon
by the mayor to address thu company,
said they had assembled to get information from Ilis Worship aud the ferry
commissioners as lo the overhead
liridgo.
Tbe speaker related an incident
which took place on the 0. I'. If ferry
crossing which brought into tragic pro
miiii'iii'i' the dangerous aspect of ox
istiug conditions. He had himself
been instrumental in rescuing a child
from being run over by a trniu, tlio
mother having in a tumult of excite
ment practically flung the infant onto
the tracks.
It waa after this incident that tho
ferry company waa asked tu provide
a temporary mean* of crosaiug that
would provide safety to the pedes
triaus. He waa told thai un overhead
bridge could be constructed for $12,1100'
that would meet the situation. Thl*
was put before tho ferry directors,
along, witb sundry other suggestions
Man/ of the minor matters were car
ried into effect at once, but tho pro
posals tbat soon came out in print in
relation to giving the 0. T. P. a 30-
foot right of way for a menus of cross-
iug tbe company's overhead bridge on
to Alexander street arrested Ibo attention of the association. This was
thought to entail many diAiculties. It
would allow the traflic of a large rail
way company to pas* in und out of
tbe same entrance as that used liy the
ferry, aud to what extcut this trallic
might expaud was only lo bo guessed
and foared. Ho said that tbe ferry
company bad raised tbe objection to
an overhead bridge at thu present
crosaiug that it would cost $10,000 to
acquire the ncccsaary property to land
on. If a single lot wa* valued at $10,
000 what then would be Ihe value of
tbe Til) foot right of way which tbe ti.
J. P. wu to utilize!
"Well," aaid Mr. Wright, "both
the Board of Trade and flic Hatepoy
er*' Aaseclatioo went into the matter
and both thougbt that not ouly would
it increase the traffic there gut It would
bo more dangerous than it is uow.
Also both bodies considered that it
wu not in tbe province of the ferry
commissioner* to give that 30 feet to
tbe Grand. Trnuk Pacific."
The mayor intervened. The proposition wu not, be uid, to give tbe 30
feet but to give a right-of-way over
tbe fm feet. Also the arrangement
would be one tbat could be terminated
by either party at six months' notice.
Mr. Wright reminded Ibe meeting
of the strength of railway companies.
"Jf we make tbi* arrangement," he
declared, "it will be a very much
harder thing than you think to quub
if and get tbat atrip of laud back
again."
Aid. Smith then arose, armed wilh
copious documents. Tbe <ir«i was three
months' old, and granted the city the
right to proceed with tho building of
ths subway. Two mouths ago the
plans were passed by the railway com
missioners, and since that time poitber
the lerry directors uor the city had
done anything to further the construe-
tion of tbt subway. "That is a question wbid ought to be'answered tonight," announced the aldermen. "I
believe tbe mayor took great pains to
get the plans passed. I also believe
that the subway could have boen completed In two or three monthi so
that If a atari had been made we could
have had it half done by now. In
my opinio* that aubway would take
tift at tin traffic of the ferry company
for a considerable time." Touching
upon the propoied Grind Trunk Pacific arrangements, Aid. Smith read
aloud a newipapcr account pf the 80-
foot right-of-way proposition. '"The
Board »f Trade," he than said, "makes
a very strong stand against the giving away of 30 feet of land to the G,
T. P. as a right-of-way." He asked tbe
meeting to consider tbe amount of traf
tie which is going to como off tbe
Grand Trunk wharf. The wholo of
tbat freight would bave to use that
i-rinsing. "Ai ratepayers," concluded
the alderman, "wo have got to look
at this question very uarrowly. Wbat
we have we must bold."
Mr. Q. H. Murilen inquired if tho
ferry company bad in any way com-
miiii'il itself to tbo railway company
referred to in connection with these
negotiations.
Mayor McNeish mado an emphatic
negative reply addiug tbat the conditions were being investigated. Further His Worship intimated that it
was not the Board pf Trade or tbo
Batepayors' Association who had first
called attention to tbe difficulties tbat
marred tbis propoied deal moro particularly as to the congestion of traffic
on this :iu font right-of-way. It wu
Manager Hoard of the ferry company.
Both the mayor ami Director Urson
staled absolutely tbat under those
conditions tbe bargain would not have
beeu consummated by them.
Mr. Mordeu considered that under
these conditions tbe ferry company were
doing thoir best to look after the in
tcrests ef tbe ratepayer*.
Speaking upou the project of au
overhead bridge at the present cross
ing Ilis Worship pointed out that tbe
height to which it would bave tp he
built would make it almost impracticable for other meaus tban a stairway dowu on tho Vaucover end, and
this would be a great hardship in many
ways. Otherwise it would bavo to descend at a grade of V.l'/j per ceut.
which would render it a difficult matter for auy lady pushing a baby carriage.
Tho mayor quoted Judge Mabee to
the effect tbat the subway wu at tbe
boit a makeshift. Coder another order by tbe railway commiuion, Vancouver wu uked to file plans to tbe
cntiro waterfront. These plans were
to be filed within six months aud in
default the railway cominision would
cause them to be made ami somebody
would bave to pay for them. , The
mayor uid tbat at tho lime of filing
tbe plans for North Vancouver's aubway tho city was under a heavy financial strain in providing fundi to carry
on the improvement work In tho city.
Now be believed it would be easier to
final the bonds for tho construction of
tbe subway.
Mr. Morden said that the question
seemed to resolve itself into ono of
providing somo temporary means of
crossing tbo railway tracks until per-
mincnt plant have matured. The 30
foot right of way proposition apparent
ly meant that 00 per cont. of tbe G.
T. P. freight traffic would crou our
present crossing over the <J. P. Hi
tracks. Tbe prico wu altogether'too
high for tbo benefit! the city would
get. Onco tbe G. T. P. ware io possesion of that 80 fpot atrip, there
would be great difficulty In disposuu-
int-lbem the right of way. It wpuld
be giving tbem a bold upon tbat which
ii of tbe very highest value to the
clly of North Vancouver. The solution tp the problem wai npt io euy
to tnd. The lubway appeared tp be
tbe boat solution even If it were tp
cpit $30,000, they would at any rate
bo fitted up with a means of access to
the city qf Vancouver. "There due*
not loom to be asytbing fpr it," Mr.
Morden concluded, "but tp put up
wilh thingi u tbey are at the preeent
limo and puib forward the lubway
»elicmc with all possible spud.'

On tee motion of Aid. Smith "that
tbe construction pf the subway as approved by tbe railway commission be
pushed ahead immediately." Also
carried unanimously.
And on motion of Mr. Wright'' that
this meeting request tlie city council
tp make tbe necessary arrangements
to provide tbe fund* for tho building
of tbeiubway." Also carried unanimously.
The meeting terminated with au earnest aisuran.ee from Mayor McNeish
that tbo ferry directors wore at all
times only desirous of serving the best
interests pf tbe city.
To Build Another Ferry
Oouucll Appoint Committee To Interview B. 0, Truat Corporation
A short special meotiug pf tbo city
Cpuncil took place last night, the
Mayor presidiug over a trio of alder
men.
His Worship introduced the pro
posal to ontor into negotiations for the
provision of $160,000 with which to
built auother ferry.
Ip relation to this important matter,
uid the Mayor, tbe ouly question
which came under diicuuiou was that
of arranging tbe loan whereby it
would rauk on an equal footing with
the present ferry debouturo debt of
$188,000.
His Worship informed tbe council
that he bad been to Vancouver and
bad interviewed the manager of the
li. C- Trust Corporation witb rofcreuco
to tbe city purchasing back tbis
♦ 188,000, wbicb is held as a first mortgage against all the assets of the ferry
company present ami future. "The
answer that 1 received," uid the
Mayor, "waa that the B. C. Trust
Corporation are only tbe trustee* lor
these debeuture* which are disposed of
to several purchasers and therefore il
would be Impossible for tbe city tu
get them back at even a premium a*
they are 40-year inveituiouts."
Tbo corporation would not, however
hinder the loan going on a par wilh
the other iaiue uor at any lime would
they have any heiltancy granting
future issue. "Their security," said
ilia Worahip, "ja the present ami fu
turo boats and to keep up the secur
ilies it will be necessary for them to
auist in building new boats." Tbe
manager of the H. D. Trust Corpora
tion had told the manager that the
advice of Solicitor Held was sound
and right.
Aid. Dick did uot feel inclined to
favor tbe proposition. He thougbt
there ought to be a clause in Ihe contract to the effect that all bonds should
rank equally so that any difficulty in
purchuing Ibe bonds back would be
uut of tbe question, it wu alright to
say tboy would couscnl lo this issue,
but next year Ihere might be a now
manager wbo, perhaps would lake a
different viow of the matter, and Ihe
cily would be in Ihe same position u
il is now.
Aid. Smith: "Dp tbe B. C. Trust
Corporation uy Ihey are prc|iarcd to
buyt"'
The mayor: "Tbey bave never
bought. They ouly hold the prcseut
debenture! u truiteei for other*."
Aid. Dick: "Tben how do we know
that the B. C. Truit Corporation will
be Ihe next truileeit"
Mr. Shepherd produced the contract
and read that clause which clearly
■tales that the city cannot make a
lecond luu* tp bave an equal rank
wilb the first without the consent of
tbi B. C. Corperation.

THE LONSPAL5 THEATRE
Flag Raised by Mayor McNeish Over Splendid
New Building
rOBBENI
Mr. A. S. Billings suggested tbat a
piece pf property might be leued on
the south lids of Alexander itreet, pp
poiite the ferry exit, to which as
overhead bridge from the upper leek
pf the ferrioi might be carried.
A'd Hcnderipn delivered a resume
«f the situation and itrpngly opposed
the 30-fopt right pf way proportion.
Mr. P. Unon, one pf Ufp ferry commissioner!, advocated under th* circumstances gplng ahead wltb tha subway and dropping the matter at Ihe
overhead   bridge.
Mr. A. W. Sargent expressed bim-
aelf io agreement with Mr. I-srion.
Mr. H. C. Wright then formally mov
ed "that tie 0. J. V, tehemi u gpne
Aid. Dick thought that clauio might
be cut out. He waa of opinion that
in view pf tbe city having guaranteed
theie bondi thero wpuld bo no diffl
cully in m ting the corporation to
cpnient to eliminating tbat clause from
the contract, sp that all the debenture
debla of the forry company could rate
pn an equal buls.
Accprdingly a oommittee comprii-
lag tha mayor, Aid. Dick and Smith
were appointed to interview the manager of the B. C. Trust Corporation
today for the purpose of negotiating
to this effect.
The mayor then announced lliat the
council had ao invitation to the official opening of the Lonidale Theatre
on Monday evening, and in view of
this the regular meeting will take
place at I o'clock in the afternoon.
Also a special meeting of the council
wiU ba held at 7.80 pitt Thursday
night to consider a number of bylaws
which will be placed before the el*o-
tprate at the January elections.
The court of revision of the voters
list! will itt in the city ball at iW
pn Monday. There are about 8,100
name* oa the revlilos lists.
Tho British flag uow flaps patriotically over the Lonsdale theatre—a
building which is internally and externally a most distinct credit to those
who bavo designed and erected it.
A cheery Hand of well wishers gathered on tho roof of the theatre at
noon ami in a quite informal way uttered a blessing on the enterprise. The
rain came dowu rather cruelly but most
of tha company denied witli emphasis
that tbis was an ill omen. Ou tbo
contrary it was recalled that a number of institutions of world-wide fame
bad been dedicated or opened on miserably wet days, if omeus were worth
regarding at all, it was remembered
yesterday uoon that theatres draw their
greatest crowds on wet nights. And
probably I'luviua wus giving Ihe management a practical demonstration of
the kind of rain wilh which he proposes
in the future to drive citixona into the
lionadale theatre.
Mayor McNciab, after hoisting the
Hag, mado a speech as breezy as his
surroumliugs. Without a doubt lie
voiced the opinions of the very representative company preaeut (among
which were several ladies) wheu be referred in glowing term* to the undeni
ably fine appearance of the theatre
which hi* worship considered waa uot
excelled in Vaueouver or hardly iu Ihe
wille province uf Britiah Columbia. He
warmly congratulated the sovernl gentlemen concerned iu the erection ami
wished for the undertaking a great
and prosperous future.
Mr. W. J. Irwin, the owner of Ihe
theatre, and Mr. Palmer, one of the
leaaees, made a suitable reply, the latter paying a hearty tribute to the former, whose thoroughness ol enterprise
has provided the cily with a theatre
of which il may reasonably lie proud.
Ahl. lls-n.lei-.nn also apoke in *uper-
lative terms, emphasizing the importance of encouraging and developing art.
Had the clerk of Ibe weather been
more accommodating, doubtless the el-
lignalories, to wit, Aid, Smith,
.Nl lino, Dick and Ilia's, would have added their euconiumi;. As it was these
gentlenieu contented themselves with
i-iiiliu-ia-in- opinions, privately eg-
pressed, ami Ihe whole company under
Ihe guidance of Mr. Irwiu, tbe Iwo
lessee, Mr. Palnior uud Mr. vou (Irae
veuifz, and the manager, Mr. Iv A.
Cole, made an extensive tour uf Inspection. Tbia completed, au adjournment
was made lo the North Vancouver ho
tel where Mr. P. l.aiM.n had in read)
ucss what has since been deacribed aa
"Ihe musl excellent little luncheon
imaginable."
Possibly only a small proportion of
tho eitizeus of Norlh Vaueouver real
lie as yet what an admirable theatre
in every respect has been erected iu
their midst. It is obvious thai Mr.
Irwiu has wished, above all things, to
provide this city witb a pleasure houae
which may be pointed oul to new cum
era with a feeling of great satisfac-
tion. Mr. J. J. Douuellan ,lho architect, who haa apecialized iu theatre
planning and designed vaudeville
house* all over tbe continent, hu, in
Ibi* instance, plainly studied every
comfort and convenience which the
play-going public like to enjoy. Tbe
door of tho theatre ii ou a gentle grade
so lhat unless one is seated behind a
colouui one ii lure of a good view pf
the slage. The boxes, pf which tbere
are no leu thau twenty two, ihould
make those in leu advanced bouses
blush for shame. In nine theatrei out
of ten the hoxci u io situated tbat
their occupants, while paying the high
est price, get morely an oblique view
of tbe stage. In the Lonsdale theatre
an admirable scheme hu been adopted
whereby every box-occupant hu an
all-inclusive and uninterrupted view.
The intorior of the house, whon fully
illuminated, promuea to look splendid
residents of Nortli Vancouver who
will undoubtedly by their patronage,
help to ass-Hi mis the Lonsdale theatre
uml its many great qualities witb a
prosperity equally great.

It js just two years s^eiucp Premier
McBride startled the provWe pf British Columbia liy iiiiuoiiucingiflio most
extensive and aggressive railway j.ol-
icy ever undertaken in western Oanada. When bo declared that in four
years the Canadian Northern would

Mackenzie & Mann were unable to finance tbo construction of the propiMcd

Bride for campaign purposes ami never intended ta bo incorporated in Ibo

bad investment and f»ii occasional
serious collapsing of unfounded prospects. Tbp selection pf lociilitien Unit

Just as on the Other band, the avohl
anec pf districts and places that have
ppt the essential elements of enduring
growth requires very keen judgment.
The whole scheme of product develop
ment, along safe lines, that may uot
be interrupted by unlooked-for drawbacks, involves sucb problem! and
tasks tbul "nl' large business experience, goed organization, perfect system, thorough knowledgo of tho country
nnd cuutioui methods can competently
cope with. Wherever there has been
such a combination of those administrative essentials tbe holds of their
employment havo prolltod by the most
substantial and maintained increase.
And k bore tbore has ouly been llctitioiis
and hazardous dealing, tbore has boon
more or less disappointment or failures.
It was tbo organization of the Hudson Bay Company three centuries ago,
a chartered corporation, witb immense
powers and solo control of tho largo
region known as Rupert's Land, now
the Canadian West, tbat first gave the
world an inkling of the wonderful potentialities of this vast domain.      It

was by careful exploration that thp
wealth pf natural resources was unfolded apd it wes by the most scrupulous
and comprehensive business system
that tbe foundation was |aiil, by private entorprlso, fpr a powerful Dp-
minion.     When "rent Britain  under-
took to develop the prodjglpos wealth
of the Indies and bring humanizing
influences tp beet upon tho people am)
Institutioni, it wus tp private interests
tbe task was entrusted. The East India Company was chartered and even
granted powers of government for the
general good. Tbo progress of tbo

Company, which had the masterly executive management of the late Cecil

chicanery evolved the now substantial
Cape Colonies, Bhodeiia, tho Transvaal, etc.
Western Canada is today in tbo
travail of a great industrial ovulation. So marvellous bas been its development that the areas of progress
b»vo como to bo marked by tbe establishment of towns, as the unitH of
growth, iustcad of the advent of segregated clusters of individuals. Whcu
ono stops to consider that four hud-
dred now towns woro placed on the map
last year in the western Canadian pro
vinces, ami that, in all probability
ns many more will be established, ihis
year, together w"h the fact that many
of the older established towns have
been growing by leaps and bounds aud
passing almost magically into tlie status of cities, the magnitude of 'the
task before tbe inexperiencpd Invest-
or, spoking a place of profitable returns
will be somewhat realized. Confronted
hy the bewildering maze of soemingly
gooil opportunities, and physically or
financially unable to make the personal
investigation which prudence would
ordinarily demand, it is iuevitublo tbat
an intending investor, anxious though
Iip may bo to obtain a stake in the
now empire of tho Canadian west, will
often Caller unl il the opportunity hai
passed, or plunge recklessly iuto ill
advised aud unremuiierativo operations.
Investment is a science. City build

go hand in baud together. Individual

TION POLIO?
The enunciation of the policy which
tbe Dominion government proposes
.fallowing with reference to immigration to Canada, which was made on the
floor of the house on Wednesday, by
Hon. Bobert Bogera, Minister of tba
Interior, denotes far reaching developments in this highly important matter.
The utterances of the minister of the
Interior were of a nature such as to
leave absolutely no room 'or further
uncertaihty as to the intentions of the
government. IIIb words were as follows;
"Tbe policy Which this govern-
"ment proposes to undertake iu re
"gard to immigration will indeed be
"a vigorous policy from every point
"of view, believing as we do that
"tbe conditions in Canada warrant
"sucb a policy, tbat Cauada has
"reached a point of marked econo-
"mir development, and I rocogolse
"as every good citiien of Canada
"must recognise, tbat our develop-
"mriii has been due to the great
"policy laid dowu by our leader in
' * 1878, tbe national policy upon
"which we have been building from
"that time down to the present."
"Under tbat policy we bava
"readied a point of development
"that excites the admiration of
"every good citizen of our common
"country, a position tbat entitles
"us lo make dear to tbe people.in
"all parts of the world from which
"we hope to receive desirable immi-
"gration just wbat our financial
"condition is, and it will he tha
"duty of the department over wbicb
"I preside to immediately under
"take tbis task."
"We shall undertake tbis policy
"regardless of race, creed or nationality, and in doing so we will
"endeavor to bave our policy a gen-
"eral policy for all parts of Can-
"ada."
Tbat the government Is fully alive to
the fact that a great influi of population, as the result of a wide spread
and energetic immigration campaign,
justly involves the responsibility of
making adequate preparations to re-
, ceive tbese new settlers is clearly indicated by the appointment of a special Immigration Commissioner iu tbe
persou of Mr. Arthur Ilawkos, until
recently editor of "The British News
of i'inni,In," who is oven now making
a tour of all tbe provinces in tbe Do
minion for tbe purposo of arranging
a scheme of cooperation hetweou tbe
Dominion (lovsrumeut and tbe respective provincial governments, iu carrying oul tbe proposed immigration policy.
Tbe wisdom of this eudeavor to secure the co operation of tbs provinces
is readily apparent and at once opens
up large possibilities witb reference
to the ready absorption of a large- and
sustained influx of population to all
parts of Canada and particularly iu
tbe western portion thereof.
There is no province which is mora
vitally intorestsd in this problem than
is British Columbia. Vor various racoons, this province has always proven
a strong favorite with the ever increasing number of persons from tbe other
portions of tbe world, wbo annually
land upon our shores, witb ths intention of making tbeir'home ia Canada.
The total immigration to, tbe Dominion
for the yea; 1908 to 1908 is given af
H6,SW8, of whom 21,68!! located in
British Colombia. That is to say,
that this province secured practically
fifteen per coot, of the total immigration to tbe Dominion for tbat year.
Statistics published by the department greased
give 365,000 as tbe number of immi
grants arriving in Canada for seven
months of tbe year 1»11-1»U. From
tbi* it would appear that 800,000 would
ba a fopiatynilyi mifatfe ol the total
immigration for Ms pr#sw>t year. Bas
tog opt computation on Ihi results in
m»-W09 gp ajietai Men, tin fenwlw
at imitrmn "riving to OA* pretiatt,
., tmmtwm im, to Worm, WW, m
be from 60,0011 to 76,000. It should lm
home in miml tbat tbeso figures apply
only to arrivals from foreign countries,
in addition to which British Columbia
receives new population in vory largt
numbers from all other portions of
Canada itself. Everything considered,
tbe total increase in the populution ot
this province from outsidu sources, for
tbe current fiscal year cannot be estimate,! at less than 60,000.
The census returns recently publish
ed, givu tbo population of British Col
mollis at last summer as 3flii,7()8.
As there figures nuccssarily includo n
portion of tho immigration to the pro
vince for thu current year, it is safe
to say that tbo incoming population
for tbo yoar 11111-1012 will equal one
sixth of tbe total population of the pro
viucu at the begiuniug of tbe year. In
view of tbeso figures, tbe formidable
nature of the problem with wbicb tbn
province is face to face in the necessity
of making room for uu annual compar
ative increase of such extremely lurg<-
proportions, must impress itself very
forcibly upon all who give the mutter
serious thought.
Tbe energetic immigration policy
outlined by tbo minister of the Ju
terior, leaves room for only oue con
elusion, namely that tho vulumu of the
annual immigration to Cauada will be
very greatly increased from whicii the
conclusion inevitably follows, tbat
tbat portion thereof whicii wili fail
to tbe lot of tbis province will reprc
aenl a proportionate increase upon
tbat whicii has heretofore boon re
ceived.
Tbe magnificent undeveloped re
sources of the Dominion in general
and of British Columbia in parliculai
are sueh tbat no fears need be enter
laincd as to tbe ability of tbe couutry
to accommodate and to absorb ail Ilu
desirable new population which offers,
but tho situation is nevertheless sucb
as to very strongly emphasize lbc ox
trcme urgemy of the formulation of
some well defined policy upon tbe pari
of the federal and provincial govern
ou ui,- for receiving tbis great incoming
mass of population upou ils arrival
and for devising overy possible means
for promoting tbe ready assimilation
thereof throughout Canada.
The urgeucy of this dopurtoro bas
boon brought directly to tbe attention
of the provincial government through
the resolution passed at the Conssrva
live convention which waa recently
beld, recommending tbat a department
of immigration bo established under
a responsible minister. Whether the
government will follow Ibis exact pro
cedure has -not yet been stated, hut.
that I'reimer Mcllride aud his col
leagues are fully alive to the require
meets of the situation is evident from
Ibe fact Ibat tbe announcement lias
been made semi officially that a Boyal
Commission will be appointed to iuves
tigate and .roporl upon Ibis and asso
dated matters.

of tbis journal is that it is printed in

ho fouml Hie great obstacle to bit

of written communication, us the natives had uo written luuguugo uf their

(lis repeated efforts to teach them
to read ami writo by ordinary methods failed entirely. The missionary
was ucqiiuiiitcd witb Iho simple
French Duployan shorthand, and
thou concoivoil tlie idea of teaching
Iho Indians lo writo their own names
phonetically by means of tho shorthand. . hu in.i.t...
lie adapted the stenographic signs to
tbe Chinook language, ami the experiment proved a i-umpleie success. There
are today 3,000 Indians able to write
and read their own language b no

means "talk" in the Chinook, hence
the title of Iho little uewspspor wbid.

Htu.ly of conditions along tbo St. Law-

moat in tlio iutorosta of navigation.
Tlio moat important of these ia the

lur ataml iu thu aame poaition uf diiulil
ua thuy slisl many yeara agu. Moat Important of llieae ia the damming uf the
Sf. Uwronee ut tho Lung Buult rapida
near Cornwall. Purmiaaion to underlain' iIiii.-. work haa lieeu sought for Hie
puat four yeara by tho Long Snult Development Compauy and tho St. I■■■'*.
rence Power l!ompany, hut, fur one rea
son or auolhcr, no authoritative body
han aa yet laated long enough to go
fully into the matter and judge wilh
finality upon il. Two yeara ago the
s'oinpauica came very cluao tu ulitainiiig
ills' much dcaircsl recommendation from
the Inlcrualiouul Waterwaya Commie-
aion then preaided ovor by Sir Qeorge
i.ii.1.1.j, in Toronto, Consent waa bcbl
user, however, ami ullliuugb govern-
incut engineers on both aiilca of tho
line have reported favorably ou tha
project tbo neccaaary pcrniiaaiun tu
atart the wurk haa uot yet been obtained. Mr. Mi'iirulli, who ia the only
ncmbcr of tbo uew commiaaion wbo may
I.c regarded aa anything of a water
power oxpert, haa atudied thia long
pendiug sin.".ii.in vory cloaely and it
ia considered likely tbat it will not be
lung before Hie uow b.nly baa cleaned
up tbis moat imporluut matter.
When the project was drat mooted,
lonaiilerable uppoailion waa arouaed
along tbe til. I.:..-.i.-....- and in Mon-
Ireal, Ibe cry being that Ihe propuaod
work wuulil ruin navigation and poaal-
bly lower the depth of waler iu tbii
port. Biuco linn the real moauing of
slumming the Lung Sault haa hecomo
thoroughly uudcratod ami buaincai
men ami manufaclurcra here are uow
almost tburougbly in accord wilh Ihe
idea.
A wurk of audi ilupendoua proportions will, of courae, call for caroful
auperviaion, and Ibe govornmeut ia attending to Ibii by Ihe appoiutmeut of
the new commiaaion.
Two other questions of great importance which the commiaaion will be
railed upon to deal wilh are the die
ision of the walen at Niagara between
tbia country and tbo United Statea,
and lbc diversion of watera from the
tit. Mary'a river In Alberta for Irrigation purpoiei. Tbis river ii an international stream, and a rather peculiar
.situation hai doveloped. It riiei in
llritiih Columbia, Sows into Ihe United
Stales and t lion relUrne to Canada.
Seltlcra in Iho diatricta on both aides
of Iho boundary lino are at war ai to
whom tbe waler belongi.

Tbcro ii anotber commiaaion—the
St. Uwrence rivor commiasion of wbicb
Prof. C II. Mcl.eod of Montreal is the

instead of deeper aa tbe yeara go by-
a moit aurpriiiug aUte of a/fairs liuce
tliouiamli of dollara are being spent

coming down the St. l*wrence now
paaaci down the Missisiippi out of Lake
Michigan by way of tbe Chicago Drainage Canals There Is so doubt alao
tbat deforestation of the country baa
had marked rcaulla open water level.
Tbe .supply of moisture haa rapidly dis-
buried down the stream is tbe early
soaion iniload of being preserved and
slowly fed into tbe rivers during tbe
course of tbe whole eyar. Tbere la as-
