Ut. E. L. Bordtn, Prtmltr ol tht Dominion of Canada.
Thr cabinet selected by the newly elected Prime Minister and which wai
formally approved by Earl Grey, Governor-General, last night, is as follows:
R. L Borden, Premier and President of the Council; Minister of Finance,
Mr. W. T. White; Minister of Customs, Dr. J. R. Reid; Minister of Agriculture, Mr. Martin Burrell; Minister of Militia, Col. Sam. Hughes; Minister
of Justice, Hon. C. J. Doherty; Postmaster-General, Mr. F. L Pelletier;
Minister of Public Works, Mr. F. D. Monk; Minister of Marine and Fisheries, Hon. J. D. Hazen; Minister of Railways and Canals, Hon. Frank Cochrane; Minister of Trade and Commerce, Hon. Geo. £. Foster; Secretary of
State, Pr. J. W. Roche; Minister of the Interior, Hon. R. Rogers; Minister
of Inland Revenue, Mr. W. B. Nantel; Minister of Labor, Mr. T. W.
Crothers. Messrs A. I.. Kemp, Geo. H. Perley and Senator J. A. Lough-
eed, Ministers without portfolios.
In connection with the lint announcement of the personnel of the cabinet
which is to control the policy of the new government, it will be of interest to
re-read the platform which was announced by Mr. Borden, previous to the
elections at which he was returned to power, and the policy therefore, which it
•is anticipated lhat the new government will proceed to carry into effect. The
platform was as follows:
1. A thorough reorganization of the method by which the public
expenditure is supervised. The increase in what is known as ordinary controllable expenditure from $21,000,000 in 1896 to nearly $74,000,000 in 1911
is proof of extravagant e beyond any possible defence.
2. The granting ol their natural resources to the prairie provinces.
3. The construction of the Hudson Bay Railway and itt operation by
independent commission.
i   The control and operation by the state of the terminal elevators,
nary encouragement for establishing and carrying on the
;

POST OFFICE SITE PURCHASED
Deal Quietly Completed — H. H, Stevens
Makes Discovery — Vendor May Fail
to Deliver,
FOB 8AM
The fact came tp light on ftiiurduy
lmii through inquiries made by wire by
H. H. Steveni, M.I'., tbat lome weekt
ago tbe Ottawa government completed
the puri'lium' of a property for pqit
office purpuses in this city. Iu looking
ufii'r the intereits of bit constituency
Mr. Stevens tout a telegram to tbe Department requesting tbat the matter
of the purchase of a post office site at
North Vancouver bo bold in abeyance
until ho had had opportunity b acquaint liiiin.i'li witb all the rehire
nii'iiin of tbe situation. In reply! Ur,
Stevens receivod a telegram from! Mr.
Hunter, deputy minister to the erect
that a sito for a post office hod been
purchased some weeks ago from Br.
Ingram. Further inquiry elicited tne
information from Dr. Ingram, who ro\
sides iu Vancuuver, tbat be bad sol<l
four lots on First street eost to the
Diiiniiiiiin government at a price of
(00,0011, 'that an initial payment had
In'i'ii made thorcun, that the docutneuts
had beeu duly executed by him and
wore thon on the way to Ottawa if
they bod not ulrcady reached thoir destination and lhat he was daily expect
iug that the balance of tbe purchase
price would come to hand. With n;
gard to the reason which led to the
purchase of his property, Dr. Ingram
understood that the government wished
to procure a frontage of not leu than
one Iniii'lii'il feet and inasmuch as ho
was the only individual who Owned an
unbroken fronlogu of that magnitude
in that vicinity, his proper^ had been
purrbased.
Au inquify in Ihe offices of tbo post
office authorities iu Vancouver proved
barren of results. Tin' poit office inspector is at present in the east ami
bis assistants had up knowledge of the
transaction, neither bad be access to
any records which might provide any
iufurmotion. lie wu of opinion thtl
if auy recommendations were forward-
ed to Ottawa witb reference to tbo
matter tbey would havo proceeded
from the office of a fesleral outhorily
iu Victoria.
_____    '
A further endeavor to secure inform
"linn frum local sources provod like
wise I'm iin. Tbo officers and members
pf tbo local executive of tho Liberal
Allocation discloui any knowledge of
any negotiations for this particular
property and all ciTorts have thus far
failed to discover the intermediary
through whom tbo proposition was sub
initiil at Ottawa.
luasmut'h as the purchase of this
perty defeats the.endeavors of ty city
couucil to soil the present city kill property lo tbe government aud/fiiasmuch
as the general public uniUyni condemning the purchase as uusuifoble, there is
every probability thut/lie matter will
not lie allowed to rein until full information has been ytutained ami made
public as tq llie/ini'un.H by which the
ited and it is like
eriniii -tlint the most strenuous
courts will J6e made to induce the newly \onstitatod governmcut tu prevent
this pruporty at a permanent utsi office site for this city
A/nearly os can he ascertained the
fcrty purcbused  it lots .'IU
42, block Dili, I), I„ 111,
situate on First street cast of Louidalt
avciine. MrAlnmes Fugler, who until
recently wus tie owner of lots 'ii and
40, in the aliovy group upun being in
tervicwed, staled that Mr. Ingram hod
not purchased his property outright
but hod a conditional agrccniout for
ils purchase. Tin- conditions upon
which the transfel is to take place
have no reference th tho price, but re
fcr to the substitution of certain pro
portion hy Dr. Ingrnni. for thoio which
Mr. Fugler agrees to well. Up to the
present lhoso condition have uot been
fulfilled uud Mr. Fuglcr Mules empbat
ii-nlly ilml unless they ore nut complied
wjth he will not complete tbe transfer
of his pruperty. Frum this'statement it
would appear that although the deal
has been completed as between Dr. lu
gram ami Ihe government, there is i
probability (hot difficulty may yet arise
witb respect tu the ability uf tbe von
lur to give full title fo the properly.

of tbo Qeorgiuu poriiid, und guarded
from Ihe tun by closely drawn lilimls,
was gg elderly man, kunwn in (bo
neigbbnrliuiiil of his home as "Obi
Roger", Imi whose surname, by here-
ditary right was Trossold. Concerning
bim a multitude of opinions were expressed, the majority of whioh, lot it
be said, were scarcely flattering. Gentlemen who had business dealings with
him were without exception unanimous
in their confessions. "A more nm

quence uf the deplorable death of his

Trossold's one solace iu life, ami uf
this possession lloger savagely slcclarcil
his fellow men would willingly deprive
him. "To Inin who both must bo
given," he quoted in the bitterness uf
bis wrath, "while I, who have littlo
enough tu hold slear, eon he Idwfuliy
rubbed uf even that littlo." It was,
however, unreasunaiile uu tho uid gen
lli'iiii'ii's part tu imagine fur a liniment
that as limid Mini' a yuung girl us Kna
Tii.-iil.l would leiii.-iiu u11s.iI. ■ for
her father's mere whim or convenience
in the course of her visits to friend's
houses, several estimable gentlemen
bad fallen victim! lo her charms ami
had even ventured to question old
Buger on the bestowal of bis dough-I
tor's hand in marriage. Each hud
been priuiinplorily tent about hit business with a parting injunction, couched
in characteristic ternn, td bide hi'
time in patience till %e fair Sn*
should reiii'h tbe' eage of discretion,
"at which date," Treuold would tar-
rustically add, "the matter thall bo
reconsidered—provided tbat neither
party had. in the meantime succumbed
to a fractured heart." A week nr a
fortnight usually sulHcod to heal the
wounded vanity of those poor thwarted swains, ami Kna, in ber heart of
hearts, felt grateful to her father fur
thoir curt dismissal. "For the future," she inwardly vowed, "I iball
■iiiidiiiiii.il avoid all intimacy
with man," which resolution tho most
conscientinusly kept—till Philip Fair
hurst was proiented to her. Then her
vow niottered littlo—and Philip Fair-
hurst mattered much.
There is no necessity to Introduce
into this itory the ordinary fuels of a
true increasing friendship, SuHieo it
to say Ibat a mutual understanding
aruse between Philip Fairhurit and
Kim Trcssnhl which gradually developed inin tho most exemplary kind of affection. And 'twas only when news
nf Iho mailer came to tho eon of old
lloger that Hie course uf their iuvu
was in any way hampered. The uid
gentleman gathered that things hod
ruacheil uu ailvunccil stage ami be was
genuinely alarmed. Ilu wroto Philip
a brief note, asking him to call at
Tress'nld Hull at his earliest cuiiveni-
cnee, ami it wus awaiting Ilis arrival
that we found old lloger when Ihis
Itory opened.
With noiseless tread, a iivoricd footman presently entered and approached
Tl' .""ll'I ':■    'llllli.
"Muster Fairhurst is in the parlor,"
ho announced. Tressuld grunted a
command uml Ihe servant rotored.
In a fow liniments Philip himself
erosseil Ihu polished floor of Iho apartment und bowed rcspecjfully lo tho
elder mail,
"I sin at your service, Master Tressuld," he suid.
Old Kogcr did not trouble tu tckiiow-
[ledge the salute, lint pointed ti) a
high-backed choir on which Philip,
Without further »ilo, Mt himself, fttt-
sold commenced all tuch interviews, as
thit in tbt same manner.
'fj nm informed, sir, from most reliable sources, that my daughter aud
yourself have funned un undesirable
intimacy,   Do you admit  Ihall"
Though Philip was a littlo surprised
»t tbe blunt way in which the mutter
waa approached, ho was outwardly
calm and replied iu like terms.
''The intimacy I gladly admit. Whether It bo undesirable or un roots in
the nature of your regard. Tho udjoc-
tive at presont merely represents your
prejudiced opinion, and to that you are
quite ontitfod."
This exchange of views, candid and
straightforward on both sides, lufficod
to show that the verbal contost which
was to ensue would not be au unequal
one. Old Boger, let it bo said, w|is
secretly pleated that his daughter,
foolish Ihuiigli her behaviour hud-bcen
bad at least chosen a fellow with the
courage of his convictions. Philip had
ulsu mure than his shuro uf gnud looks
and his frank blue eyes and determined
mouth did not displease Trossold. Nevertheless, in the lottor's opinion, the
follow before him wus a robber of his
world's goods and os such he must be
treated.
"1 wish you to know," Trussold
recommenced, "lhat my datightor, Kim
Trossold, is to possess no sweet heart
till she has reached an ago of wisdom,
She is now only twenty, and to think
nf serious love at her time of life is on
absurdity."
Tho old mnn pousesl, and Philip suited thu upportunily.
" "I'i.. uoi mi:I\ of serious love thai

Tressold hud never buforo heard hit
temperament to frankly described and
the novelty stuuiiod him fnr tbt mu-

not surprised to see the old guiitlemun
almost speechless wltb wrath. When
at last ho did regain control of hit
voice, his words eelloeil through the
room like a clap of thunder
"Du you think," ho roared, "that
you will advance your cauie by offer

Philip regarded him in mock stir

"Really, sir," he answered, cooly
and deliberately, "I wai not owore
lhat I had over aiked you for tht bind
of Mistress Tressold. As mutters uro
already arranged between Ul, that

tore the bull from itt socket.
"Show Master Fairhurit tho door,"
hu ordered the footman, who immediately I'litcrcil; then to Philip "I fnr-
bid you any furthor conyorso with my
slaughter."
Philip bowed witb great tplemnity.
"I wiib you good-day, tb," he sajil
then turning to tha footuitu, rmutrk-
oil "I am lorry tu give you thii extra

And thus he quitted Treuold Hall

"There's certtinly loaothigg il

his wrtth had slightly aimincred. Thin
os his thoughts wandered back to tbt
cause of Philip'i visit, bit eyt flatbed

"Damn himl" he ttid loudly, and

thb aymum mo
A loriom outbreak nf tbii insect in
Middleit. county, Ontario, bat been
reported to tbf diviiion of Entomology,
find jt it important tbat farmers in nil
parti of Psntdt should have tonic
knowledge qf the ligniAcnuce of. this
pent, iti lift hittory ami meuiit of pro
vontion and control. Jn a recent circular ittued by the Bureau of Kutomol-
ogy of tbo United Btatei Department
of Agriculture it ji itated_ that "few
iuiecti bavo earned tucb eiiormoui po-
euniary lotioi at hat the Chinch Bug.
No other inteet native to tbe weitern
bemltphert hu spread itt devastating
bordei ovor a wider area of country
with more fatal effect* to the ttaple
graint of Nortb America tban bu tbit
ont,". It it ottimatod tbat tbe louea
due to iti ravagei in tbo United Statet
during tbo but sixty yeart considerably
excoeded ♦350,000,000. While tbe
Cblncb Bug hai net yet depredated
crops in Canada to any lorious extont
and tbere ii uo cause for alarm or fear,
novertboleii iti early recognition anil
treatment in the caae of local outbreak! may rcault in the prevention of
comiderablo louses to tuch crept u
wheat, corn, oats, barley and rye, ihould
the iniect spread.
Although tbit insert ii a native of
the North American continent it up
peari to have migratod into cuttcrn
Canada from tho south. It wai drat recorded at doitructivc to wheat iu Nortb
Carolina about Hit following tho war
of Independence; the Britiih soldiers
wore accordingly blamod for its pretence. It now niTiir.-s iu abundanco in
tho United.Btatoi and is found from
tbe Atlantis' cent outward to Color
ado and northward to the Great I .alien.
The adult Chinch Bug incuaurea one
fifth of au iiu'h or less in longth; it ii
blackish in color witb white upper
wingi each bearing a conspicuous
black ipot. The winter ii puasod in
tbe adult itago under rubbish of all
kinds, fallen leaves, itubblo, grail
and brushwood. In tbe spring the fe-
mull's dopoait tbeir oggs near or on
tbo turfaee of tbo ground either among
tbe roeti of cereals or grans or iu tbo
leaf ihoaths of tho plants. Kucb fc
male may deposit upwardi of live bun
sired eggi which hatch iu two or threo
wceki. The youug larvae are yellow-
iib in color but ioou become red an 1
later a bright vormilliou. Tboy are
similar in sbtpo to tbe adultt but are
wingleti. In most of the iufcitcsl re
gioni of tbe lluited Btatei tbere are
two aunual generation!, but iu northeastern Ohio tho flrst brood docs not
fully develop until tbe licginniii,r of
Heptombcr ami there ii no indication
of a lecond brood. It would np|iOM
therefore, in Cauada that wu ba- e ouo
brood only iu tbe year, and 'he O'lults
of tbii tingle annual generation hibernate Tbo priucipal injury i« apparent
iu Auguit and Boptcniber. The insect
inflicli Ihe most damage nu wheat,
barley, corn, rye ami oils; it al.o nt-
inntly iiifeila timothy incail.wa n< in
;!i,i cuo of the proe'.t outbrn.l'
The best methoi! of prevention. M in
the case of numerous inse-1 Jicati*, is
clean cultivation and dtanlinou auo-.t
Ibe farm. By clearing awny uud Imni-
ing rubbish, hruihwood, etc, clo'juing
uji 1'i-ni i . and in othor ways destroying
the hibernating places ef not only these
but other injurious imccts most valu
able work ran be accomplished. Where
timothy meadows or paiturci arc attacked, u in tbe present instance iu
Uiddlcicx county, remedial measures
arc difficult to apply owiug lo Ibe ex
tout of the area now permanently laid
lown. Burning them over during the
whiter will do ionic good but many of
tho hibernating bugs will escape.
Natural factori may play a considerable part iu determining the ubuu-
ilniice or scarcity of chinch Bugs. The
two chief factors are meteorological
condition! and a fungal diieue. The
latter li dependent upon tbe former
for ill oflicacy. Bcvcre winter weather
doei not appear to affect tho hibernating adulti when the locality ii au et-
poicd on. Coiiiiiiuuus rain during tbe
time of batching ii fatal and is important in tbe natural control of the pott.
Ou account of tbe dry weather wbicb
bu prevailed during tbe put summer
tbo outbreak will probably be more
scrioui noxt year unleti continuous
rtint in the spring dettroy tbt young.

THE PBOPOBBD FOBT OFFICE BITE
Tbe information which was made
*~\ public tbit week to the effect that somo
•weeks ago the government at Ottawa
hail purcbaeoil a lite on First streot,
somewhat oast of I.onsdalo Avenue, fpr
post office purposes, has givou rise to a
storm of protest from all quartern.
This protest is based upou two reasons,
lirst because tho proposed site ie considered altogether unsuitable for post
ui   purposes  and  secondly  because
should it lie used for tbat purpose, tbo
purchase defeats tbe negotations whicii
had been proceeding between thu city
couucil ami Ottawa looking to the purchase of the present city hall site for
thu purposes of a federal building.
Thu exact location which lias been
purchased is understood lo be lols ,'lil,
40, II uud It!, lllock 155, I). I.. 'Hi.
situated (ilh lei't) east of I.ousslale
Avenue, on the north sidu of First
street.
It will ul once be noted thai these
arc all inside lots and thul uny building
erected thereon will be dependent for
light upon the front uml tbe rear of the
, «»• building, a feature which must be considered a serious defect in any public
building, fur reasons that are apparent,
to all. Further, a building erected on
tbis liis1 wuuld bo dependent for its
architectural attractions, entirely upun
the front elevation, which will ut once
be rcciigni/.eil as a serious handicap.
II wus reasonable lo suppose Hint u
buiiiliug ,iv,ir.| in Ibis city
by the Dominion Government for federal purposes would be a structure of
sonic architectural pretensious un<l une
that wuulil ronslitute au uutstuiuling
feature uf tbe city from tbis stand
point. Tbe Utillutlon of the site under discussion wuuld remler the reali/.'.-
lion'of tbis expeilation impussible, because of Ihe fact thai the site will nol
permit uf the architectural effect thai
il desired.   Again, Ibe erection of a
perinunciit pott office builsling un this
a
site wuulil mean that  the great  bulk
of citittni wbu frequent tbe pust office
wuuld lie compelled to walk a comid
erablc dlittuce from l.uusdale avenue
to retch Hie iilliic, a fact which implies
in llii' count of time, a great deal of
inconvenience tu the general public m,.I
win' li is ail the more inexcusable be
cause it is absolutely unnecessary. II
may further be observed that the W
lecliun ul' an inside site, removed from
the chief higliwuy of travel fur a post
office site in North Vancuuver constitutes an unfair discriuiinatiuu agaiuit
tbis city, in tbe face uf whicii every
public minded citizen should enter hit
most vigorous protest. If the neighboring cities of Vancouver, New Westminster or Victoria be called lo mini,
it will be seen that lu each of'tlic.e
instances tbe federal building is one of
Ibe foremost structures iu the 'ily .imi
il liluateil on the most prominent curlier tbat could be procured iu tbe heart
of tbe most frequented sections of the
city. In tbe estimation of those who
have the best interests of Nortli Vaueouver at heart there Is no reason why
unjust discrimination should be derated agaiuit tbe city iu thii particular
hy relegating it to the second rait
clans with a federal building in a loca
lion that Is half a century behind Ibe
timet.
Thit act upon the part of tbe outgoing government at Ottawa is ai' the
more difficult to uin'etstauil, because it
bean every evidence of having been
deliberate ud intentional." There wat
no hatti) ncceeaary at tp tht purchase,
neither wm tbore any lack pf ipforuia
' tips in the Department of tin Foot
Dtatter (Iineral at to the other and pre
ferable totei that were available. The
Depart«tut wu fully aijviicd ef the
faet IM tW city Ml iHt tepid be
ngicmtei u I pool elite till, tint it
wat in every way a iplendid location
and that it was generally accepted by
tbo eititent at largo at the very apot
at which the federal building ought to
bo built, the city hall property afford! ovory facility for the erection of
post office building which would
measure up to evory reasonable expectation from' an architectural or othor
point of view uud whicii would in
every reipeet place North Vancouver in
tho companionship of thu most modern
and progressive cities in this important
particular.
Iiiii.iiiiii.Ii as this regrettable error
lias been committed iu tho
purchase of this unsuitable
uml unacceptable site, it ii tp tbt
utmost degreo desirable tbat the matter lie prevented frum pruceeding auy
further and that evory uffort be mado
lo induce the incoming government to
abandon this property as a prospective
pust office site, cither disposing of it
as sunn us this cau bo dune upon a
business basil, ur using it for some
purpose other than that for which it
wus purchased. At the same time it
is imperative lo the interests of North
Vancouver that Ihe government be induced to purchase the present city bail
property while it is available for a federal building.
THB VOTE ON THE MONEY BL
LAWS
The keen Interest which wus taken
by Ihe rnlc|>aycrs in Ibe money bylaws
which were submitted uu Salurduy lusl
is clearly evidenced in the fact that the
Intal vote polled was much larger than
any yet recurded upun a similar occasion
namely 84)8.
Thtrt are in all appruximately .i.nun
voters upuu the municipal lists of the
ity and of those a total of 011 was
polled at tbe mayoralty contest iu
January lasl. The hlgbest vute polled
for ulileriuen upon that occasion wai
fit, for ferry director fill), for icbool
trustee 6H) and for any uf the five
money bylaws submitted at that time
■vm. Some uunli lis ago when a bylaw
was submitted tu authorize the closing
of the Fsplanaiiu the total vote polled
was about 100., From the above' Ag
ures it will be seen that the tolal of
li'iti voles polled on Saturday lasl repre
scuts a very large poll creating a record

The one bylaw of the iix tubinittc.i
ou tJaturdty to which the lively interest
uii.iiiti sis'il by the properly owners wat
attributable wai doubtless bylaw number IMI, to enable the city "to rain

247 against, live ballots being spoiled
Although this poll ibowi a itnight mu
jorily in favor of the bylaw of 101!
voles, tbe sUnuiive vote fell tbort of
the necemary three fifths majority by
ten voles, for which reason the bylaw
law failed to carry. Ail of the othor
bylawi were ratified by large major

Al it invariably the case, opinions
will doubtless differ somewhat as to the
chief cause which militated agaiuit the
sues ess of bylaw number lilt, but Ihere
will not be any wide diiteut from the
statement that the primary tnuit wai
uot tbat tht property owners are event

that this pf itself would not havo exerted sufficient influence to defeat tho
bylew.        j
While the two reasons above ment iuued were factors ill tho discussion whicii
the bylaw in question created, yet thero
it h eoii.'i'iiiiini of opinion to Ihu effect
that tho element which weighed most
heavily against tho bylaw, was the im
preition Hint found lodgment in the
minds of niauy ratepayers, that some
where amongst the motives which
prompted tbe proposition to purchase
the property tboro lurked the covert
purpose of using the property at tin'
permanent site for the city bu|l. Whether this impressing was m wus not well
founded, it inuloiiiahiy existed and exerted a pronounced influence qpon the
vote. Had there been a clour cut issue
before tlio ratepayers upun tbo question of a eity hall site or hud the impression in that respect tu which refer

negative vute wuuld have been very
much larger than it was,
Tho one conclusion which appears to
bo plainly assertal through the ml

tbat Uie ratepayers are i'uljy convinced
that wherever Ihe city bull may ultim

"Why, yes, tell bim Ibat as Philip's
wife yoy will scud him our address so
be muy corns ami see you, ami, as J
think he will, forgive us both."
"Ob, I hope so," Kna answered
wilh an involuntary sigh. Thcu, feeling ugaiu the reality of the niuuicnt,
she changed the sound to' an cicluina-
lion of relief.
"Al lusl," she murmured thankful
ly, "I shall be placed beyoud the persecutions of Muster Kcnard."
"Thank Heaven for that," respond
od her lever fervently, ami with these
words he kissed ber once and was
gone.

Five  minutes  to   the    hour!   Km
Trossold- drew her c|oak closely ruuud
bor and, witb the semblance uf u shudder, placed a single lighted caudle in
bor boudoir window. The flume flick-
orod for a inoiueut, then seemed tu
suddenly realise tbe imporluuce of its
'lliu i' and burned brightly and merrily.
It was ju.il as she had done, Kna
thought, when making up her mind lo
carry out this plan. When Pbilip
bad first explained to her Ibo nuturc
of it, she had felt afruiil, then hud the
light of love*grown stronger uml more
confident, till now it shone wilh n
brilliance su certain uml su lasting
that it loomed tu illumiuule the whole
world ami burnt through the one fruil
siring which bad tied her lo bor hume.
Hhe had Ibat night cumpuscd a lung
epistle lo her father and this lay uu
her I,mi,imi table where be would find
it in Ihe inurning. Then she wuuld lie
gouo—perhaps forever, but with
Pbilip.
Hark! What was that I Solemnly
from tho old church tower Ihe first
hour of tbe morning wus proclaimed,
uml a trice later, Kna heard tbo Hofl
crunch of gravel on Ibe terrace below.
Wiping away Ibo mist wbicb bad ga
tborod on the window pane she glunc
od quickly down and through the night-
gloom  discerned   bor   lover's    form.
Philip hud come then ami was wuiting
for lur. .'-lu' must not lose a moment.
Picking up the satchel which contained her few necessaries she blew out
the light ami softly crossed the room.
A board on the luiuliug creaked au.l-
il.lv uml her father, being a light sleeper, she thought for un instuut ull wus
lusl. With her heart in her mouth sbo
listened intently but beard only thu
sound of ber own irregular breathing.
Stealing cuuliously down the carpeted
sluir's she reached tbe drawing room
in safety ami music for the French
window. Unfastening Ilie catch wus
the work of a moment. Quickly uud
silently the window opened and Kna,
with a ■ mull sigli of relief stepped out
mlu Hie night uir.
"Philip!" silie whispered, Suddenly
feurful lest she only dreamt she had
hccii his form on the tcrrurc. in answer tu her summons, u strong arm
wus placed around her waisi, while a
voice bushed her lo silence and she
kuew il wus her Philip in Ihe flesh,
Not a worsl was exchanged as the
Iwo doukesl ligures crossed Ihe Juv.ii.
Worming Iheir wuy through the shrubs
whicii lo Kna's frightened eyes hud
assumed the must grulcsi|uc shapes,
thoy reached the wicket gate through
which  they passed into the road  be-
wind. Here tbore awaited Ibein a clos-
iui in carriage, just as Philip bud arranged, with one solitary liguro neatest in readiness on Ihe box. Kun had
unly time to notice lhat there were
two horses haruossod to the vehicle
when Ihut strong arm pushed her firmly but gently iuto tho worm interior
uf Ihe coach. Mis' heard Philip
breathe u word of instruction to tbo
ni.'iu on Ibe box and Iho next iustunl
his form wns beside her and the journey had commenced. The girl heuvesl
a lliunkful u;:ii und rested her Watty
head on her lover't shoulder. Hurely,
she imagined, in the scclusiou of the
carriage there wus uo longer need for
silence. It wus evident, however,
that her companion did uot Intend lo
speak, so after u lupse of a few min
ui'",, she broke the stillness wilb a
whispered  "Philip."
No answer was vouchsafed her and
she concluded that be oither had not
heard her, or wus dozing afler his ex
crtions. Mm amused herself by listening lu the thud of the horses' hoofs
and Ihe continuous rumble of Ihe car
flags wheels. Then she suddeny ho
ilin ,-.'lii herself that Philip had never
told her'whither he 'would tuko bor so
to satisfy ber curiosity on this point,
■ho bent sightly forward and asked in
a louder tone:
"Won't my Philip tell mo where wo
are journeying lol"
As she concluded her question a
lumbering gipsy curt (ravelling in the
opposite direction passed their window
am) Ibe litful light utlucheil to Ilie fore
part of the vehicle pierced the iuter
ior of the coach. It was but for tl
moment, but iu thul moment Kna beheld the face of her companion und,
with a stifled scream rose unsteadily
to her feel Instantly ber wrists were
seized in a grip uf iron aud a voice
which she knew only too well, answer
cd her innocent query
"Where Philip Fuirhursl would havo
nl.11. you is ' Minis his own affair.
Where yuu ure going wilh Puul Ken
ui'l is Ihe only thing to be at present
considered"
At lirst Kna -cuuld only porsuuih'

of Kcnard's words dawned upon her,
ami she turned upon her captor in a
storm of angry scorn.

At Itiinniiiki, which is a little summer
resort on the south shore of llm St,
Lswronce, the business of landing and
embarking (bt (tanadian mails took
pliu'ii From the dock of tha "Lauron-
tit" we wero able to see the pilot's
boat shoot out from liimmmki and
skim towards our liner like u toy terrier
making for a great llnuii. The pliira itself is 180 miles northeast of (jueboc,
has a population of 4,000, and possess-
es a Roman Catholic cathedral, three
convents, schools, county buildings,
two banks and a few industries, Out
of its 4,0110 inhabitants, however, we
only had the pleasure of seeing the
pilot ami a few frieuds or relatives
who wero aboard with him He brought
the little craft alongside of us quite
easily, for our engines wero taking a
few minutes rest and the lea was «»
nihil as a mill pond. Then the mails
were lowered to him and the Kimouski
Iiiiii.lin given ill exchange. Hullo! A
murmur passed like a feu-de-joio along
the double line of spectators. An accident had happened—email, inasmuch
as it would not affect the destinies of
Canada, but full of deplorable possibilities in an individual sense. One
mischievous letter had escaped from
the outgoing mail bag, had dropped into
the sea ami was Boating merrily back
to the old .-..iiiil ry! Wh.mr was itt
Tbe pilot looked worried, but shook bis
head. It was plainly useless to try
and effect a rescue. So he steamcii
away hack to Kimouski, leaving us to
concoct sundry I'omedies and tragedies
round the theme of a lost letter.
We approached Quebec in the moonlight and left again in the early morning. So that the ancient citadel figures
in my reminiscences bi little more than
an array of twinkling lights. 1 was on
deck iu Iho morning suuliglit however,
and just caught a rapiil glimpse of the
city's splendid appearance. It has
been said concerning Quebec that the
traveller may tbere contrast the Can
a.la of early days—as instanced in the
quaint village of Sillory or somo oher
French Utiitiliin homes!ceil, wilh the
eitreme modernity of Montreal, tbe
commercial, financial ami shipping centre of the Dominion. I have been told
that had we been let loose from the
ship we would have visiles! the historic biiiilelicl.il. upun which French
and Hiiiis.li were in turn victorious,
seen for ourselves sume of the difficulties which beset the path of the earliest
explorers, disported ounelves amid
harming lakes, woosls ami mountains.
Thus sin I informed concerning the pro
vluce of Quebec, so lhal I don't at all
wonder lhat the city's lights winked tt
ut so persistently ti if to imply "You
lun'I know what you're missing by
visiting here overnight." As it hap
peued, there was a passenger on hoard
who was, in himself in historical en
cy.'b.paedia I understand that there
> passenger of this kind on every
liner. He made euiiatint reference to
a most cihauitivc guide book which he
poisessesl and could rap oul staccato
facta i hus i-nnne any place that we
touched. Someone, for instance, was
ul,...lit in i ii.I i.i enough to approach him
on the tubject of Quebec's historical
fame. "Qucbcrf" he exclaimed tfor
/nn.hi, "why yes, of course! Founded in
1608 by Chainpliiii. First viiilcd by

While we wero still moored along-
lide the wharf at Quebec, the whole
second claia company wu herded into
tht taloon for sume mysterioui kind
of namination. Thit, we understood,
wu om ef Iht necessary formalities
of emigration lo Canada. A trio of
uniformed officials ut Importantly at
a table itrewn wilh documents, while
puienger afler pesiengcr stepped iuto

mty be that the luxury of the crossing

Of Ihe official- with many -bullous .Ini
not tndtar bim to our memory. He had
apparently been trained to regard all
thl tbip's juiruns 11 either possible
undesirables, persons without visible
meets of tuittunre, or individuals
with no reel right to inhabit Ihe same
planet u an emigration inspector. The
sudden question " Howinm Innoiiey \ '
yergotf" seemed lo haflr a number of
unfortunates wboic rings alone wert
sufficient guartnlee of opulence. Ont
or 'two Htinei metaphorically spread
thtir feathers tnd murmured some fib

THE OPAL
October's Birthstone
The ban of superstition under which this splendid sione ley for
yean, hsi been displaced by ihe forces of education, and once more
it commands the foremost place in the jeweler's art.
Always looked upon at a symbol of hope, innocence and purity,
it is difficult lo understand how il came to be considered p stone qf
ill omen. When looking al the play of prismatic colors in (he opal,
one can understand why the ancients esteemed it so highly as to
call it "parderos," or child beautiful si love. In our stock of loose
opals and opal jewelry the purchaser will always find the purest and
best grades of these stones. The opal belongs not only to those born
in this month, but to all who admire beauty.

COUNCIL DISCUSSES
POST OFFICE SITE
A Government Purchase on First Street-
Council Pronounces Site Unsuitable.
Tho premier f on turn of last night's
session of the city council was a discussion relating to post "llleu improvements for North Vancouver, Tbe aubject was Initially raised by Mayor Mc
Nuisli, who made un aiiiiouiiepiiioiit ti
the effect that thero had been a rumor
in tbe eity that a situ for a now post
offioe had buon-purchased for .shi.hihi
Ilia Worship read a letter from Mr-
11. II. NtuveiiB M.P. eoiillrming this
rumor. The mayor went on to explain
that ho brought thie matter forward be
cause thoy were all insure that the city
hall had boen offered to the Dominion
Government for the purposo of a new
pust iinii'ii ami now, it appeared, a sito
had been purchased somewhere along
first i.iii'i'i. lie wished to denounce
it most emphatically as being the most
unsuitable place. Thoy would be bettor served with the post office where it
was, oven with one wicket only than
on first street. In tbo mayor's opinion it was in every way regretlulde
that such a thing should havo boon
done. Perhaps the government did not
buy Ibis property before it went out of
power—that the peoplo did not know—
.iur u government like a city council
|wiis iii power technically until its successors look office, liul in any case it
was not a party affair. A pust office
was for the convenience of overybody
und he believed that each party would
denounce such an unsuitable purchuse.
Nu one could truthfully say that it
wus suitable. Tho mayor advocated
the passing of the strongest resolution
possible, whether the deal had boon
consummated or not, sn that it could
be forwarded lo the authorities at Ottawa.
Aid. Kittson pointed out that if the
purchase had been consummated they
might he capable of preventing the
government from using the site for a
post office.
A I.l. Ilemlerson said that he thought
the mayor's suggestion a vory proper
one. He submitted that tho resolution should be carefully drafted on tho
strongest possible lines of protest. Afterwards, he thought, a petition might
lie sent from North Vancouver, also as
strongly worded us possible; also they
might give those iu power a little history of the cily hall site. Tho petition
ahould be backed by the local member,
Mr. Stevens.
Mayor McNeish suid he had beard
many reports us to where the sito was
and was still unaware of its siss and
locality. He called upon Aid. Dick for
enlightenment.
Aid. link denied any definite knowledge on the subject. He hud received
no Intimation but hud simply bvard it
ii,mull ■I that u purchase bud been made.
He presumed, however, that they woul.l
he lots '■)'■>, ID, 41 and J'-', situate about
SOU feet from Ijonsslalc Avenue. These
hail been the properly of Dr. Ingram.
For ;:',ii,iiiiii such a purchase was not unreasonable, but Aid. Dick agreed that
Ihe cily hull site wus a better one.
Aid. Kiss could not understand how
Uie mailer bud gone through without
the knowledge of the authorities here.
Aid. Smith said Ihut someone had
evidently siiggeslesl Ihis properly to the
government, The government had not
found it out for itself. Whereupon
Aid. Dick immediately pointed oul that,
lie would get no commission on any
such properly us this, if that was whut
Abl. Smith meant,
.Aid. Henderson said Diet he did not
think uny such thing was implied.
Aid. Dick considered the remark had
u tendency that way.
Aid. Henderson moved that the mayor iu conjunction with the cily clerk
prepare a strongly worded proteit
ngaiusl the purchase of the site for a
post office und that it lie forwarded to
Ottawa together with a petition from
the residents of the .city which, through
Mr. Btevsns, should be presented to
'lie authorities at Ottawa.
AM. Kitt.-un seconding, suggested
that a clause be added to tbe effect
lhat if the property had been purchased
Ihe council' strongly objected to it*
utilisation for a post office.
It was decided that a protest be prepared pn these linos, to be submitted
io the council on Thursday evening.
During the transaction of oilier mat
ten the council wu uked to |«w a
resolution submitted by the Uetl Op
linn League of 1). 0, to the effect that
it was desirable that the council nave
power ou a petition of 18 per eent. of
the iileciors, to submit I bylaw to the
electors in the form of a plebiscite, giv
ing the council power to reduce liquor
licenses ill the municipality oii a majority vote of the electorate at any municipal election.
Two motions were forthcoming, one
tbat the question be referred to committee, the other tbat it be filed. Tbe
mayor hsd to give his casting vote and
decided in favor of it being Died.
The secretary of the hoard of achool

the Lonadale school site tp mako 22ml
slreei a width nf lili feet ami aiSatcd
lhat the question would come before the
trustees at their regular meeting on the
,11th iust.  '
The city engineer rocommeuileil that a
12 foot sidewalk he constructed on the
suuth side of first street from l.ons
dule Avenue to the Impress Printing
Office, also that a similar one be constructed on 1st street from Lonsdale
Avenue to Ilie west side of lingers
Avo. Both ninii.'is. were referred tb
the board of works.
Mr. Hancs also advocated the construction ul' a new 6 foot sidewalk on
the west sule of t'hesterflehl Ave. from
Ifie Esplanade to First street. Tbe pres-
ent 4-foot sidewalk which had been
taken up during (lie grading of ('lies-
lerlleld Ave. was too old to be rolaid.
Tho cily clerk of Vancuuver wrote
concerning Iho harbor improvements
for gruuter Vancouver, slating that tbe
members of the Improvements Commit-
Ico bad ou the 27th ult. resolved that
u committee of two, from each municipality ami Board of Trade iutereated
iu harbor improvement* be appointed
to devise means and ways of bow best
lo bring about the developments and
management of our harbor* and the adjoining water frontages.
The mayor ami Aid. Smith wero selected to represent tbe council.
The provincial secretary wrote, saying that a hearing would be granted
before   the   Lieutenant (lovemor    in
I'Olllll'il   Oil   Vie. I in "-.III.,   Ill''   llth   prov
inio iu Ihu matter of the itice Uke watershed.
The question of planking the east
side of Lonsdale Avenue from tbe waterfront to Third street so that it may
ho used for traffic during the winter
wu* referred to the board of worki.
The Burrard Inlet Tunnel 4. Bridge
Co. intimated that tho city of Nortb
Vancouver would be allotted one thou
suinl shares in accordance with the
council's application and that a certificate would be iwuod on receipt of
Hi per cent, of the par value.
A letter had been received from tbe
i'u nnd mn Pacific Ilailway Co. acknowledging the receipt of a plan and specification* of the proposed railway and
slating that this plan has been banded

Otme Questions bs Will Balsa In Par-
llamint
Mr. II H. Stevens, M.P. was present
at a liuiupiel under the a^apicea of the
Vancouvor doneervative Club on Friday evoiiing, and in Ihe cour*e of an In
lereating speech, touehod upon sundry
suggest ions that be wubl make to the
liuiiiinn.il government for the solution
of certain problems that concerned
Vancouver as  a  port.
"I am bent on making every effort
to acipiaiul myself uith tho need* of
the constituency I repreeent bofore I
go to Ottawa," declared Mr. Slcveni.
"There are.urgents problems confronting Ibis city uud dittrict which bave
linen neglected by the prior governmiit.
Fint, there is the big i|uestion of harbor improvements Mr. Hordeu will
have a splendid opportunity for con
itruetive statesmanship iu connection
with tho great ports of Vuncouver ami
New  Westminster.
Necessary Improvements
"I may divide Ihe neceiaary work
of harbor improvements into four div
isious, the North ami Houth Arms of
Ihe Frascr river, False Creek ami I lur
inni Inlet. All these great harbor* re
quire immediate attention, both from
National and Imperial point of view
The Panama canal will be opened in
some Iwo years, and then Vancouver,
using lhal namo in it* largest uud
moat comprelieii*ivo sense, will be in
active competition with other ports of
the coast for the carrying trado of the
Pacific."
Mr. Bteveiu emphasi/cd tho fad
tbat it wa* imperative ihut .the great
harbors of the Vancouver district be
put into shape for the work of a great
commercial base. Vancouver was the
western gateway and it* future was,
therefore pregnant with import to the
whole empire.
Mr. Steven* continuing, referred lo
tho dredging of Ihe Frascr river, de-
daring that much time ami money had
been spent uselessly iu the matter II,
advocated the appoitment of expert
engineers to survey Ihe river ami form
some decisive plan of operation for the
removal of the sand head* at the
mouth, and tbe general preparation of
tbe river for the accommodation of
ocean going  veaacl*.
Mr. Hleven* next dealt wilh mat
ter* relating to False Creek. "The
puit of Vaueouver," he laid, "ha* at
tho present lime less available harbor
accommodation than almost any other
port in the world at all approaching il
in importance. In a very short time
our commerce will have increased lo
such an eilcnt that it will be imp's-
.-lisle to care for it in llurranl Inlet
and tbe coaeling vessels will have, lo
lind iiorliorag. elsewhere. Tbii ii
where tbe importune of False Creek
lies. It il of paramount importance

Editor Express:
I wiab you to allow me a little space
in your paper to contradict the report
in your lusl issue re the Capiluno work
msn. You stated that the grievance
laid by a delegation of four workmen
from the Capiluno district was the cutting of their noon hour down lo half
uu hour, lo allow the men from u dis
lance to leave off work earlier in tbe
evening. This is not tho caae ul
though it may have been represented to
you that way. We do not leave off
work any earlier than usual. The only
person it benefits i* the forcmun in
charge. Tbe men who come from lown
would rather start al the usual time
und have the regular hour for lunch.
The only thing that wa* correct i* the
fad lhat the iiieu were not consulted.
Hoping you will rectify tbi* mistake.
I am, air
