A function of outstanding interest,
•ignillcant uf tbu v.eii iiiini,i, ,1 optimism with which the future of tbo North
-,'<*''dime is ununiiuously regarded, took
pbii e on Wednesday evening in tbe
runins of tlie publicity bureau. The
event referred to wus u smokiug concert arranged under tlte auspices of the
North Vancouver Civic Advertising
Committee und purposed to iutroduce
Mr William Lawlcr, tho city's publicity commissioner, to those whom he
had nut already met. Thu evening in
its entirety was one of the most successful of its kind ever organized un
this side of the inlet.
Proceedings buving been opened
with u pianoforte selection liy Mr. W
Wunl, the cbuirmuii, Mr. Alexander
Philip, briefly outlined the evening's
progrum, ami Htutetl that thu commit
teo hail received $2,500 already and
expected tu raise the amuuut to (0,01)11
' towards the efficient carrying out of
the year's work.
A summary of the progress, en
deevor* uml acbievonienti of the joint
civic advertising committee since its
' inception iu lllllll aak, supplied by Mr
A. U. Perry. She program for ihis
year, sni,I Mr/rcrry, was a departure
from forincJ'yeurs, work on a brooder
scale being contemplated, lie earnestly ap|iealeil to the busiucss men ol
the city for financial assistance in this
new venture.
Tho publicity eiuiiiiii:,. ,iiiiii-i-, Mr.
I.owler, dwelt upon the necessity of
embracing opportunities as they occurred, und detailed tile means be cun
teniplulcd using us media for bringing
North Vancouver prominently befure
the public. With this essential pur
' pose in view, illustrated and descrip
live matter would be sent broadcast,
and descriptive articles witb views
could bo published in several period
, icals. Tbere Was, he believed, a great
ib miinil for information on this part
of the country. The kind of icttier
was an important factor in the upbuild
iug uf the place, Quality rather than
quantity was desirable. Many people
came here lo get all they could for
nothing. It was not wise, he believed
to give out too glowing uccounts of the
district, Many disappointments .
penetl ou account of this. Many would
belittle the tourist trallic, character
uing it aa transient and nut permun
■Wit. This might be Ihe ease taking tho
visilurs as individuals, but collectively
the luurist traffic wus permanent audi"11' subjeel
every means should be adopted, .to Jims

ver. "At the present time," said Mr.
I,nclet-, "I am negotiating wilh twu
industrial liauis contemplating cstab
liKliiucnl in North Vancouver. Ouo of
these will employ ubout liul) men. Tho
main tiling lhat the cily wunls, bow-
ever, for the encouragement uf indus
tries is railway facilities."
Mr. Idwler urged the people of
Nurlh Vancouver lo patronise their
own city'i business establishments,
und so enable the firms to build up to
lhe requirements of the people. In
conclusion hu advised tbem not to become "linm I.en.," not io much be
cause of,the harm Ihey did, but be
cause' of thc amount uf good they did
i       not do.
f 0 lit. lluwe, who, ai a witty poit
prandial speaker and epigrammatic expounder of iiiiiiiiiiiii sense, is no Strang
or to tbe Nurth Hhore, delivered an ml
ilress of -ii iiniied interest. The inter

listened to a masterly presentation o|
lhe problem uf Community Publicity
in its relation to (ireuter Vancuuver,

Ilf till the ilipuble suns wlllllll tiic

indeed whose capabilities etjtial lints.'
which ure evidenced by the persuiiultty
uml wurk of Dr. Bowe.
ilr. Bowe is particularly ul homo iu
the field which Ih uhTunlcd his mental
capacity und his forceful energies, liy
the work iu which he is engaged. The
Statute u|' Liberty woultl appear cu
lircly uut uf pluee in u cily sipiurc lie

uated as il is al ilu entrance uf New

harmonize with the immense <hack

seen lu cxccllunl advantage. After the
same manner, une can scarcely picture
lir. Bowo uniting lhe minor details uud

splendid type uf mentality which hursts
ull narrow hounds uml seines' with

whicii he i'i;: i.t tu contend. IIia

Of the most searching order reducing
tba subject fn its rudimentary priu
ciples, but ha Atnt not atop thorn, fut
his ininil is ossimtiully constructive and
out of tbe elements at hand be immediately proceeds to build somothlug bet
ter, if possible than that which he has
analyzed. He revels in grappling with
tremendous problems, he thinks great
thoughts, enunciates great principles,
perceives great possibilities, plans great
tbiugs, to all of which the work he has
in hand offers the largest scope ami
for these reasons tlio personality of tho
man finds itself in a most appropriate
setting, in tlie important office which
he occupios with such conspicuous ability.      .
Thero aro fow of (lunaila'a sons in

such gruut und permanent influence for

does that of Dr, Elliott S. lluwe upon

NO COMMUNITY can be truly
prosperous that has net confidence in
ilself and ils local institutions: Thc very wont advertisement
lhat a cily can have is the fact lhat its people have to go elie-
where to have their wants supplied. When we see a place in
which the ordinary commodities dial should rightly be supplied
by their own merchants and manufacturers are obtained elsewhere,
lhe inference is naturally drawn lhat there must be something
radically wrong.
At this stage of her development Norlh Vancouver cannot
afford lo have the impression go abroad lhal our commercial interests rest on anything but the most solid foundation, and it behooves us all who have the welfare, of this community at heart—
and I am convinced lhal this will include everyone within our
borders—lo assist in every manner possible lhe building up and
strengthening of our local commercial institutions, and this end
can be best accomplished by lhe patronizing of our merchants
and manufacturers, by the citizens generally.
Of course the fault may not be always on the one side only,
and those who supply our needs must do their part, as wc cannot
expect die public lo sacrifice their interests in the matter, at
least if we do expect il we are bound to be disappointed as long
as human nature is constituted as it now is, bul this I am very
sure will nol apply lo Norlh Vancouver as wc can rest assured
that lhe men who are al the head of thc business affairs of this
cily are worthy of our utmost confidence. They have shown
their faith in the future of the Norlh Shore in the strongest possible manner by investing iheir capilal and by assuming thc burdens
of citizenship which owing to their extensive interests always rest
more heavily on iheir shoulders lhan on lhe shoulders of the rest
of a community generally.
( This being the case, il is only natural that all things being
ti|ii.ii, they should look for our patronage, nol in any charitable
sense, bul simply as a mailer of good business pnnciplc.
This has a farther reaching effect lhan mosl of us realize; it
is not only llic merchant personally who is benefitted bul directly/
or indirectly ;1 effects practically lhe whole community, for instance, as the merchant's or manufacturer's business increases they
musl employ more help, who musl have houses to live in, clothes
to wear, food to eat, and the many other necessities and comforts
of life, nilii i people will be required to supply these needs, and
so lhe thing goes on indefinitely in a sort of endless chain. And
ibis is only one of lhe many ways in which thc increased prosperity
of our business men will help the city at large.
Wc musl nol carry this loo far. however, we musl maintain
an intercourse wilh our neighbors and the world in general in a
business as well as in a social way; we musl exchange thc commodities which we produce, for those which we do nol produce;
we musl nol say lhat we are su/ficient unto ourselves, lhal wc
must nol even in a small way lake thc position that the
Chinese nation did in olden limes when they said, "We are
much more advanced in civilization lhan the rest of the world and so
much superior in every way dial we do nol care to associate with
them, we will build a wall, both figuratively and literally around our
country to dial ihey cannot enter." We know how they carried!
out ihejf intention and when some dipusands of years later they
awoke to what was taking place in die rest of lhe, world, they
lound lhal ihey weie hopelessly distanced by thai part of the
human race lhal had earned on intercourse with one another and a
general interchange of ideas and commodities.

Recently, Hou. William It. Ross,
Minister of Lands, discussed with enthusiasm the organization of the forest
branch, which has just taken place, nu I
lhe plans for immediate work Ihut
Hayo been tlocided upon wuru oiitliuuil
to a Colonist representative.
Since he hrst took up Ilie duties of
his office eighteen months ago, Mr.
IIiii-h, realizing' the urgent need for
forest conservation in British Columbia
baa been studying every uspect of th'i
problem and working steudily toward*
the establishment of n fnresl service
for the province which will eiiHiire fit'
perpetuation of its magnificent forests
sud the permanency of its important
lumber iinltiBtry. Ths creation of thc
forest liruni'lt embodies the fruition of
his labors, uml entitles Mr. Rosa iu n
very real sense to recognition as the
father of forestry in Hritisb Columbia,
A brief review of flic important stages
which have led up In the taking of this
upniiii.i step in advance by the Min
ister of Lamls will be of particular in
tercel at this moment.
Orowth of Forest Policy
I'ulil llic coming into puwer of llic
Hon. Richard McBride in 1003, little
attention liml been devoted lo foresl
matters. The important purl lliul lim,
Iter wealth coulil piny in the develop'
iiii-nl nf tiic provided, lhe need fnr its
protection from lire, ami the necessity
of encouraging u wholesome growth of
the lumber industry hud not up In llmt
time received proper recognition by
provincial governments, As a result,
the province was suffering enormous
liiiiiiiiil loss frnm forest fires, ami the
return bnlh in public revenue uml in
commercial prosperity from the foreal
capilal wus very low.
Mr. Mcllride was the firsl of tbe pro
vinco's statesmen  lo realize that  the
greatest asset of lirilisli Columbia lies
in her forests, und to institute a vig
orous policy both for their conservation
a,nl for the development nf their full
est usefulness to the people    The re
suit was the forest legislation of 1000,
whicii at one stroke, by producing u
revenue of two uud a half million del
lure, placed  Hie province on a sound
financial basis, enabled lhe government
to   enter   upon    ils   far sighted    pro
gramme for opening up new regions for
settlement by means of mails, surveyi
ami oilier public works, attracted dip
ilal, and led directly I'o thai campaign
of investment ami il.ni influx ul' popti
lafioit which have placed British Co.1
umbia iu the proud   and   prosperous
position she occupies today.
Poreatry Commission
The next step in Ihe government'»
11,,;-i.ii,,iii,   was llic appointment of
for. t-f rv  commission  to study  Hie n-l
utiiimtrative ijucstious involved in llic
practical   application   of   the    modern
conservation theory to lhe   forests of
litis province.   The commission, il will
be  remembered,  submitted   its 'report
at the end of 1910, within a week nr
two of the acceptance of tho portfoliu
of mioister of lands by Mr. Rosa.   The
new minister was naturally desirous ol
giving the  fulleKt   possible  considers
tion   to  the   forestry   problem   before
faking action, and  as llic aossion  of
luy followed close upon his reception
of the commission's reporl, if was ilr
cidcil to devote the rest of thul year
to the maturing of propoaed legislation
ami lo confine Immediate work in Hie
field lo the enlargement ami more care
tul organization of tire patrol.

whose conspicuous efficiency has cam
ed for il lhe jusl reputation of being
one of the best organized sdminialra

To the Hon (iilTord I'nn liul and lo the
well known forestry expert, Mr. Out
ton Price, belong the credit of creating
this great organization,, and it was Ilie
lullir  gentleman   whom  Mr   Ross lit
vited last autumn to assist him In the
task of framing plaus and securing the
best  expert  personnel   for  the  foroal
service of British Columbia.   The foe
est. of the province are Vital to its
prosperity, ami the firm determination
of the minister of lands wus to endow
Ihem and safeguard them with a fori »t
service second to none.
The opening of the present year suw
the Introduction of the comprehensive
Forest Act, which is recognized on all
hands as tbe last word in forest legis
lationj.ils clean-cut provisions with re
gard to fire protection receiving in pur
tictilar the trjbule of goneral opprobu
tion. Tbe act passed, Mr. Ross at one)
faced the question of organisation, am!
since the arrival of Mr. Price to tske
up. his duties in the province, pluus for
tbe new forest service have been fully
worked out, ao thst it can outer at
once upon its duties'
Organisation of Forest Branch
Tho branch will consist of four main
offices, between  which a logical   and
effective distribution of work has beeu
mailo. Tho offlco of operation will be
charged with tho protection of forests
from Are. Most Important work confronts this oi'ti'i' in improving methods
of lire patrol throughout the province
It is proposed tu follow the example of
the United Status forest service, uml of
the voluntary associations of timber
owners iu the Western States, iu increasing tho efficiency of patrolmen by
covering the forest districts by u net
work of trails, which ure no less neons
sary to efficient lire patrol ut reason-
able expense than tho patrolmen them
selves. Field Telephone Hues uml look
out stations will be bui|l ns rupiilly
us possible so that men can bo summoned i|ini i.u to the ilm,,-, i points in
the lire season.
The duty of huinlliiig lugging slush
ill the besl iuteresta of the forests,
which has been placed upon lhe foresl
protection fund liy the legislation of
lust session, will lie met by uu annual
-•umpiiipn for the disposal of slash ul
suitable seastins and by lhe enforce
ment uf the provisions of lhe acl lo re
move litis menace lo the safety of lhe
forests. It is peculiarly gratifying to
the minister iu this connection Hint the
Dominion railway commission has re
contly drafted regulations for the cun
Iroi of railway operations in lhe prov
nice, ami Mr, Clyde I.euvitl, the t'oresl
'Xpert who hue just been appointed
thief fire inspector for Hie commission

The commission will shortly appoint .
special lire inspector fur this provim,'.
whose duty it will be lu establish and
supervise putrol on ull railway rights

Extensive Duties
The ollice of forest management in
Ihe new branch will be Ln - ■ will,

j-.muni work, since il involves uul unly
the supervision uf scaling and timber
inspection, bul also lhe duty of pru

forest resources by unneccajiary tie

years' practical experience in western
forestry. As a general Inspector in

Benedict has played a prominent par'
in organizing the national . forests,
which now comprise a total area of
nearly two bumlrod million ucrea. In

capacity to handle the practical prob
loins which confront British Columbia
in tbis connection has been folly.dom
oitslraled by his remarkable success in
