In tbe courie of hii ipecch in moving the lecond rcediug uf tbe bill pro
viding for a line of railway from
North Vaueouver to Fort Oeorge, Pre
mier McBride made the following
statement as to the rclationi of the
Pacific and Oreat Eastern Railway
Company witb the Howe Souud, Pemberton and Northern Bailway:
"Tbere ie an item I muat mention

railway built from Howe Bound towards ths Pemberton Valley by tht
Howe Bound and Pemberton Meadowe
Eilway Compauy, of which Mr. /. G,
ith, an SatlmabU eititen of British
Columbia, is preiident, From my Information Mr. Keltb undertook tht
construction of this lins from the town
of Newport it the head of Howe Bound
Pemberton Valley and further on to
Fort Oeorge. Tbe Pacific and Oreat
Eaitorn Bailway, as I bsve slready do
scrlbsd, will traverse the ssme icctiou
of country as is already traversed by
this nine miles uf road. I would like
to inform tbe legislature this after
noon tbat in tbe working out of tbe
details in connection witb tbe consfruc
tion of tbis line, It ii expected that
tbe new company will be enabled ou
fair and reasonable terms to take over
tbs trsckage of ths Howe Sound sad
Pemberton Valley road, so tbat tbo la
veatment for which It stands will.And
fair and ample protection. If tbe gov
eminent'can conduce towards s settle
uiciil of this sort I assure you we sliull
spare no effort in tbit direction. Mr.
Keith la an old resident of tbis coun
try, snd has shown grsat faith in this
provincs, and is one for whom I bsve
great reepeet, aad to me it would be
yery latiifactory if those Interests could
be fund, and ths invsstments of Ur.
Keith should aot bs affected."
Inquiry at the head offices of ths
Howe Sound, Pemberton snd Northern
Railway Company elicited the information tbat negotiation! are now proceeding between tht repreeeotatlves of
the two companies with a vlsw to tbe
trsuifer, but that the Jatalls of the
purchsse hive aot yet been complet
ed. There is no doubt, however but
tbat ths ultimate outcome will be set-
Isfsctory to both .parties. Ths si
sets trsniferred will iacluds ths charter rights of ths Hows Bound, Pemberton ind Northers Railway, together
wltb the line aad equipment it present ia operation. It will-not include
any of tbe real estate or similar assets of tbe company. As Intimated in
tha remarks of Premier McBride tbe
purchase is made it tbe suggaitlon of
the government in protection at tbe
rights of tbe H B, p. k N. Railway
Compfny In view of tbs faet that tbat
company  bad  bun  pioneer  nilway
It ii staled that by thu end of Apri
tbe plans fur lhe Hccopd Narrows
bridge will have been completed. Am
when they are finally approved by tin
railway commissioners at Ottawa, i
meeting uf lbe directors uf Ihe bridgi
compauy will be culled and lender,
invited. A few weeki later the con
tract will be let and work will be
started on the construction of the
bridge, ll is the opinion of Ei Reeve
McNaught Ibat littlo lime will be loll

Sir Juhn Wolfe Harry's engineers ure
working on the plans now. As soon
as Ihey can gel some uf them completed
they will be forwarded tu Otdiwa tu

to the ■ oi. em.'i !:■ for Ibeir apprA
al.   In III!.: way a great deal of lime

Tbe men important feslure in which
the plans will be altered as compared
with the recommendation of Mr. P..
Crutwell will be with respect to the
lift which will ><e of Iho Musculo type

opment of Valuable Properties oo
North Bhors.
It il uut generally recognised thai
within a few inilcs of Burrsnl Inlel
on the North Shore are lo be found a
series of mining claims which have
been declared by mining men of wurld
wide rcpulatiiiu tu contain ure deposits
thai rank among the grcatcil on the
continent fur magnitude. As a sum
pie of the site uf these uro deposits
there is on one claim named tbo Roosc
veil, a ledge which has been uncovered
for a width of .'cm acres across the
fine aud which is clearly traceable a
distance uf Ilium feel in length. There
arc several claims iu the group .sll of
which arc owned by the Imperial Car,
(Shipbuilding and Dry Duck Corpora
lion and lhe claims are estimated un
.Seymuur creek wltbln lhe boundaries
uf  Nurth  Vancuuver  diitrict.
While considerable development wurk
hai been done un the properties frum
time to lime, uo effort has hitherto
been made to develop Ihem on au extensive basis, li is now reported from
private sources that the owners have
entered into au agreement with une of
the slrong.'M milling corporations in
Europe for tbo'development of Ibe pro
perlies on a comprebenilvc scale and
thai active up. ruiions may be expected
lo begin in Ihe near future. The work
ing uf these mines together with the
stabliibing of thu related industries
will nn an Ihe building up of a pu\ rull
uf large proportions und will confer
large benefits upun   North   Vancouver.
Two cases of which tbo preliminaries were heard pt the city ball this

Brooke the complainant, Mr Arnold.representing the latter. The dlslrlcl
chief of police ii still required to di

csso entails a charge of stealing water
from Iho cily waterworks.
A third case wss satisfactorily ilis
posed of, two Italians having appro
prialod a buck saw. As the evidence

having been suinu misunderstanding,
Ihe defendants were merely invited tu

Weokly Letter from Out Special Press
Gallery Representative
Vlotprla, Feb. !M The panl week lias
been railway week, budget week and
week nf many sittlugH rolled into one.
But chiefly |n llm h|efpry of ilm prp-
viqce it wjll bu ri'ini'inlii'ie.l ss railway
week, for did it not witness tlio unfolding of tbe policy by which Premier Mc-
Brido intends tp drive hie- stool somo
800 miles further into tlio wilderness
of British Columbia, and so make nil
tributary to tbs great main arteries
of its .■nnini.Tco. fn this policy po
place has.a more direct interest tban
North Vaueouver. whieh will thus become the meeting placo of tho Qrsml
Trunk Pacific coining dowu from the
nortli and tbo G'anadiuu Pucific from
tbe south. For while tho Pacilic Great
Eastern is to be built from North Vancouver to Fort George by Mount*. Fo
loy, Wolch & Stewart, it is over this
|ino that tbe trains of the Grand Trunk
Pacific will run to the south, ami ss
the lailer bss the first option of pur
chase it socma inevitable that sooner
or lator tho line will be absorbed by
tho largor corporation. In the incan
time with the provision that construe
tion ob the lino must be started with
in the next three months at u distance
not greater than ten miles from the
city of Vancouver, it Is certain "IU|
Nurlh Vancouver will become n centre
of great railway building activity Inr
ing the coming summer. ' v
The Kettle Valley bargain also bus
its interest for Norlb Vancouver, bo
cause it follows directly ou the C. P
R. announcement of its plans in regard
tu that Inn;' As thut corporation
brings ofer its subsidiary line the
wealth of Kootcuay tu the Pacific
coast, it also will cry out fur mure
shore room and terminal facilities. Fullowing this comes the announcement
in budget and eslimutcs that the government grant fur the Second Narrows
liridgo had beeu increased frum |3!J0
000 to $400,000. The grant ia of
loiirne cuiiilitionul, but it spells sub
stantial aid ull the sume and is ilea
lined to hasten thai Incoming uf rail
ways from the south which latest de
velopments have rendered inevitable
With all these announcements following
each olher with breathless rapidity it
must be agreed Ibat the pasl week has
been big witb destiny fur the city1 ami
district un the north shores of llurrurd
In conjunction wilh all those circumstances is lbe budget annoucemel that
tbe i■"■.•■nn. M will, duriug Ihe coming
yeur spend over |IO,ill|0,llilU iu lbe pro
vincc liind of this sum rather mure thun
one half ia lu be devoted to public
works. As the country aruund llurranl
Inlet is tbe rocognixod commercial can-
tre of the province, the greater number
of tbese dollars must inevitably roll
into it. Placing the populaliuu uf the
province for the coming year ul the
liberal estimate of 400,000, this eipon
diturc means nn average of tin n bead
fur every man, woiuuii and child in ud
ditiun to the large amounts lhat musl
be spent by tbe rullway . companies
themselves. All this, combined wilh
lhe great income from lbe natural re
lourecu of Ibe province, must mean con
tinued expansion aud prosperity.
The speech delivered by Premier McBride ou Tuesday lasl, uu moving lhe
second reading uf bis railway bills,
was one'of the best tbut hus ever ful
leu from his lips in the legislature
Probably it should be spuken uf us u
series uf speeches rather than a speech
but Ibey were so closely connected as
lo wear an air of uniformity. Per
baps owing to the mass of important
matter with whiili be hud lo deal, he
stuck mure closely tu bis text than us
ual, and lhe frills that he did weave
here and Ihere were all quite pertinent
to the subject. He certainly showed a
I,non ledge of the province and ite needs
that was not bom of book lore, but
rather hai beeu imbibed by au ubser
uml mind during Ihe residence of a
lifetime in which he has travelled aud
seen much. Nur did he hesilale when
occasion arose to,reproach men so high
in the railway world as Hir Thomas
Shaughneuy and Mr. J. 1. Hill fur
their neglect of British /'olumbia. Of
both men he bad much lo say In per
tonal praiie, and he admitted lhat the
Canadian Pacific'railway uow showed
signs of a kconor interest in the pro
nine than it had dono for mmc years
past, but there were few icavoi on Ibe
■wilcb ho wielded when speaking of
Ihe Great Northorn.
The only serious attempt to criti
cisc Ihe premier's policy was msde by
Mr. Brewater, but it was evidently the
labored effort of an overworked man
Mr. Browster is at all timet coneclen
tioui, and be considered it his duty to
the country to pick out any flaws in
the government's policy tbat he may
see, but whon he has lo load the order
paper with questions, io draft reiolu
lions and amendment* aud to discuss s
multitude of varying subjects, it is.
quite evident tlist, he cannot do jus
tice tq tbem all. In his criticism of
the railway policy ho was between the
Upper and the nether millstone, for no
sooner had he finished liis roply to Ihe
premies than Attorney-General flowesr
• v.:

tho hills passed third reading stage with
remarkable case and uuauimity.
Hon. Price Ellison's second budget
dolivprod on Friday last, was a com-
prohonsive sebemo and thoughtfully
wprdod document. Perhaps nut many
may caro |o read through the fifteen
printed columns that it makes, bul
tboso who do will find in it much |bat
is instructive ai to tbo linaneial standing and imlnstriul (irogruss of the pro
vince. Probably thero was nothing in
it more ."isjiiinnni than the statement
that on the Loudon market today liri
tish Columbia three*per cent, slocks
stand three points higher than thuse
of aiiy other proviuco In the Dominion reckoned on u similar basis. The
fuel that the progressive railway policy
inaugurated by the McHride govern-
ment three yeurs ugo has bud this
effect, muy have hud uut a little tu du
witb encuiiruging them lu brunch uul
still further on this occasion. While
tbo budget itself wus Interesting the
del.aie upon if pruved rather tamo. The
one bit of spice was given tu il by Mr.
Purkcr WilliuuiB, whose quuiut sense
of huuiur wus never displayed tu hotter
udvuiitage. Mr. Brewster spuke in u
rather dejected strain, us Ihut uf a
man who tried to do his duly but look
od only to being rewarded witb defeat. Mr. M.i....van uud Mr. Hay-
ward injected u few original ideas into
the discussion, bul generally speaking
tbo speeches uf the government sup
purlers were platitudinous und uniiiliy
During the week the West Vancouver bill wus reported complete by the
private bills committee, Exemption
from the It. C. Electric franchise was
refused, bul it wus ugrced thut the new
municipality might huve tbe suu'e priv
eges in dealing with the contract us
Ibul formerly enjoyed by the muiiiei

Au expert in fish culture who lie
lievei that fish have inciporics gave u
novel exhibition tu support bis theory
In one of the enclosed pools ul the
hatchery under lbc charge there was
a large tuml which always came for
ward lu see und be sivn when visllon
appeared. II wae the expert'1 cm
torn, after directing puriiculur mien
tion to that point, to raise bis cauc
quickly and bold it uver the water
The performance would have no cfferl
upou tbe Irnui
Then Ibe expert wuuld produce a
light truut rud and appear with it ul
the side of the pool. Instantly Ibal
trout would turn and ter. hide ilsell
at Ibe far cud of the enclosure, and
remain Ihere so loug us lbe rod nu-
u tugbl.
This is the cxplnnalion of the sud
den change in Ihe trout's demeanour
Oue day, early in the career of Ihe
fish, the expert, to try u barhlcsa hunk
he hud devised, cast with one in that
pool, and this Iroot s.'i/ed it. The
houk penetrated and passed Ihruugli

people will) eyes tbat womoii think tho
ways of mtp absurd.. Iu bor heart of
huarts, tl)0 most adoring wife uon-
uiduru bar husband as much of a
bungler ia argument and business and
bit. Other proper activities as be would
bo if ho trM to seiy on bis.OVI) Imt
tons. To the thoroughly fepijnine mini)
tbe masculine method of negotiation,
or debate, or deliberation seems designed to produce delay, and confusion,
and fiasco. If it does not, it is obviously because tho intelligence of men
is adapted to these mini.nun, illogical,
unreasonable devices. Tlley bavo not
the clarity of intelligouco to see how
absurd they are. They havo not suf
lii'ii'nl quickness and keenness to make
any belter system work. You might
as well eipect a' horse witb infinite
labour, to haul a muderatu luud, and
it is no use trying to toach him to do
anything more.
But if yuu insist in using the hurse'it
methods yuursclf, instead uf standing
by tbu throttle of the steam engine,
yuu will merely demonstrate how
clumsy arc tbu metbuds of tbo hortui,
how far uut of date is a system of
transport by the energies of flesh ami
blood. Home ladies in America, clearly
descrying this great truth, havu sot
themselves to exhibit thu absurdity uf
the admiiiistraliun uf justice as ar
ranged by men. Kveryliody knew, uf
course, that wumen regard the slow
ami tedious motlinds uf a Hourt uf Law
as hupulessly unintelligent. Its con
I'epliou of justice uppeurs to Ibeir
lucid minds preposterous uml bewilder
iug. Bu In America, always in tbi
van uf lhe movement uf" Intellect,
they set themselves to apply tu thai
ciirnerstuuu of AngloSaxou jurisprudence, the jury system, tlie solvent
uf a reduction ad absurdum.
Why should there lie a jury I if s
man is guilty, if a litigant Is in the
wrung, lie is mil mure guilty, he is
not. more wrong because twelve people
say su instead of uue. Of course, as
soon us you have heard the eVidcuee
ami very often before, you know per
fcctly well. If a male judge cannot
make up his mind without twelve other
men lu help bim that ouly shows tbat
men uugbt uot to be judges. The thing
is prepusterous—as preposterous us Ilie
ancient tbeurics that yuu have twelve
uu a jury because "tbe prophets were
twelve to foretell the truth, the
apostles twelve tu preach the truth,
tbe iliseuverers Iwclvo sent intu
i nu.mi. Ii! seek and reporl Die truth,
ami the stones twelve that the heavenly   lin i....linn  is built  nn."
So "tbe first jury composed exclusively of womeir'J when it "assembled tu try a case ut l.os Angeles''
lhe other day proceeded swiftly to
display the fully of the trial by jury.
"The, case was," we read, "whether
a youth had exceeded the speed limit
on bis motorcycle in defiauce of the
law." Not, you observe, the kind of
case which lung delays au Mnglieh
bench of magistrates, li ut "such was
the divergence of opinion as lo the
case tbat the women were unable I)
agree upon anything, not even wliWe
Ibey should luueh. The bailiff had tu
choose the luncheon place, ae severe!
jurors were anxious to go shopping."
You may wonder what would have
happened if tbe old brutal ways of inducing iiiiiiuimily were iu force in l.os
Angeles. For once upon a time juries
who could uot agree were liable, nol
merely to be kept without fooil and
drink till Ihey did, but "lo lie put in
a cart and drawn afler Ihe justices to
ilu- border of the county und llicnup
set into the ijitcb." Hut, of course,
America is much too civilised for anything uf this kind, and' so it was not
the woun ii but the jury system that
was "upset Iuto the ditch." There is
a rumor, indeed, lhat "thu rase »f|l
bo retried before a male jury.'.' Km
we decline to believe it. Uuuly these
noble twelve, destined t<]^4<ci'ome
historic, bave sufficiently demonstrated
Ibe folly of keeping a number of
people wbo might bave beeu shopping
or at somo oilier of tbe really iin
portent occupations of life bothering
about a caae tbat one could have de
■ idi'd It tbey have, tbey will have
earned Ihe gratitude of men as well
as women. But we always knew that
social institutions would never be
thoroughly reformed till wonicu began
to i iiiiirnll them.—Telegraph.
Nothing can prevent Canada from
becoming—if they keep their politics
clean and Iheir judiciary pure—not
only the granary, but tbo heart,' tbe
soul, and tbe rodder of the Britisb
Empire.-Urd Qrey.
None but a cultivated mind can understand tbat if the whule human race
could be turned loose, to eat and drink
and play like thoughtless children, life
would bcconlti meaningless; that •
paradise, in wbicb work should uot bo
necessary would become wearisome.

Contrary to die usual practice lhe Assessment Notices for
1912 have been s^nt to lhe registered owners of property
according to the Land Registry records,       t
Up to lbe present, purchasers have been in lhe habit of
notifying the cily authorities tbat the properly had changed bands
so that notices of assessment and taxation should not go astray.
This form of registration of owners has heretofore been deemed
sufficient for city purposes, but owing to a recent decision tbe
city council is advised by ils solicitors to recognise these owners
only who appear on the records of the Land Registry Oflice.
Unfortunately a great many never register iheir deeds or agreements.
The North Vancouver Land and Improvement Company
has received numerous assessment notices for 1912 for property
which il has sold and which has since changed hands two or three
limes.    ' |
The Company, therefore, desires to notify persons who have
purchased from it that the/ should take steps to ensure notices
of assessment and taxation being sent tp them so that they may be
come aware of lbe value at which tbey are being assessed and
pay taxes as (Key fall due.

though many visits had boeu paid to
Mexico and tho southern Indiuns lew
know.anytbiug about tho North American Indians, am) capociajly tbe Canadian Esquimaux, consequently, little
is knowu about their probable or possible origin. Prom bis intercourse
with both peoples he is convinced
that tbey woro originally one race,
und that they are Asiatics, oilber
coming iuto North America from
Mexico or by the Bchriug Straits,

of which will he studied in order, if
possible/ to establish the correctness
or error of lhe theories which he
and others bave formed as to tbe

Mr. I.e.luu said he hud hud many
interviews with Capt. Amuudsen, who
went through Northwest passage in
1B08, and ■ although Ibe latter bad
seen many Esquimaux groups be wai
too busily engaged upon his voyage
of discovery lo pay much attention
lo lbc huliils and lore of tbe tribes

Mr. I.cdcn obtained considerable data

As lo lhe possililc length of lime
which Ihe Esquimaux havo inhabited
northern Canada .Mr l.ciicu said Ihul
Ihe flreeiilaiiders bud no doubl come

had been in North (Ircculand probably
1,500 years, while Ibey had beeu iu
Boulh (ircculand 1,01)0 years. When

they brought back uo records of any
living kings, said Mr. Union, and il
was only when South Greenland was
visited 700 years later Mini liny
brought back Ibe story of men being
seen there.

was nol sulbcienlly advanced in lhe
sttidy to say, but his great bopc was
to visit the Esquimaux of the Artie

customs and thus jntke comparisons
with Ihe Indians of lhe soulh He
intends lo lake a geologist along as
well as a couple of southern Es
quimuux as interpreters and thinks
lhat it will take at leasl three years
before Ihey will return lo civilization.
"Hid you lind the Esquimaux a

"I found that where Ihe Esquimaux
were kept reniolc from ihe whiles
Ihey were a moral people, bul 1 regrel
lo say Ibat couduel wilh whiles did

Asked what he thought of lbc

said lhal be bad been wilh Cook
three weeks al a time, and be socmcil
lu be all rigbl. lo fail, he went so
far as lo say thai Cook was sincere.
He thought Cook got lo tbe I'ole all
