On the motion of Coun. Bridgman,

A letter emanated from tbe Burrard

and intimating tbat tbe construction
of the bridge will coat considerably
more.tban was at flrst estimates! before
borings and aoundiugs were taken by
tbe company at a cost of $111,111111. "It
will, therefore, be necessary," the letter stated, "to bo assured of the balance of tbe costs before tendon are invited, as the directors feel tbat it
.vmilil Jn- very injudicioui to tbe council
tbat you would further assist tbe undertaking by subscribing for additional
itock or by guaranteeing tbe debenture* of tbe bridge or both to such an
extent ae will assure tbe completion of
tbe undertaking. Tbe directors havo
every reason to feel assurod tbat both
the tiAetpfpaA provincial government!
wil/act liberally iu giving further aa-
eiitamn- to tbe project, and aucb being
tbeTejtie, tbe directors can, with the
combined effort! and aiiuranco of tho
different municipal councils and government! proceed witb the undertaking
witb safety."
Discussion ef this missive was re
lerved until council moved into committee.
Ooun. Allan introduced a requeit from
the owners of diitrict luts Wlto-61 and
83 tbat tbis property be cleared and
opened up. One of tbe owucrs was
Mr. Qeorge Hay, wbo purposed com
plating a 3400 houie and had given a
bond te tbii effect.
Conn. Allan moved tbat in view of
tbe faet that these people were iu no
immediate need ef tbe read wbicb
would coat tbe diitrict $2,133, tbe matter be laid over and not be dealt witb
by tbe present couucil.
Coun. Lawson thought, however that
tbe work should be proceeded witb
He advocated tenders being called.
Coun. Loutet suggested tbat the
Worki ihould go into tbo
wbat ii exactly wanted
heated discussion which
roke out ou tbo question
oun,. Allan ridiculed the
idea ef Mr. Hay bimieif living in s
$400 bouse. Whereupon Coun. Bridg
man argued tbat personal knowledge
ef perieaa and tbeir means should not
intrude into council debates. "If we
were to follow tbat practice to the let
ler," retaliated Coun. Allan, "wc
should be swamped clean out in no
time."
Tben, wben diicusiiou of Mr. Hay's
bund was at its height, the clerk de
purely announced tbat it had juat
been discovered tbat Mr. Hay had nol
ie far ilgned any agreement te build.
The reeve leeken annoyed. Eventually Coun. Bridgman moved tbat on
tbe neceuary bondi being given the
read be constructed to Mr. Hay's
houie, and that tendera be called for.
Tbii wai carried.
/. P. Crawford * Co. wrote aiklng
Ibe council to have diitrict let 864

walks'laid for which the company would

DIRECTORS CONFER
WITH THE PREMIER
Premier McBride Receives Favorably Request
for increased Provincial Assistance for
Second Narrows Bridge—Detailed Plans
Now Being Drawn in London.
The Hen. Bicbard MfBrlde accorded
a bearing yesterday to tbe Board of
Directors of Burrard Inlet Tuuuel and
Bridge Company, in order tbat the
company might discuss witb bim tbeir
doilre to secure an increase in tbe ai-
sistauce already voted by tbo provincial government for Second Narrows
Bridge. There were preient upon behalf of the Company Messrs. K. Mahon (President), James P. Foil, James
C. Keith, K. W. MacLcau, Lambert
Bond, Mayor McNoiab, Beevo McNaught, Beevc Wcart and Wm. McNeill.
Mr. Mabou laid before tbo Premier
tbe prcaent poBition of matters .pertaining to tbo bridge project, explaining tbo increased coat of tbo structuro
which it was proposod to build witb
the reasons therefor.
In tbe further discussion which followed it was pointed out that while
the Company had borrowing powers to
the amount of $760,000, at the sanu)
time tbe fact that the bridgo was not
to bo a toll bridge would prevent the
exercise of tbese powers unless tbe debentures of the .-.iiiij.uiiy were guaranteed by the government or the municipalities. There were, thoreforo, two
methods, by cither of wbicb tho increased fuuds might be procured: First,
by tbo government providing tbe money or ai large a portion of it as tbey
would aud thou tbe government or tbe
municipalities guaranteeing tbo debts-
turcs of tbe company for remainder
requireil; er second by tbe proviuciivi
aud tho Dominion government each
providing the largest increase in tbe
respective subsidies tbat. tbey wouhl
at the samo time advising tbat the
miiiiii'ipnliiii "i concerned provide an increased subscription all arouud lo an
amount sufficient tp finauce fbe pro
ject.
The Premier asked particularly whether tbo respective municipalities were
preparod to increase tbeir assistance
in view of tbe larger cost of tbe bridge
Tbe directors replied tbat tbey wore
now in communication witb tbe coun
eils for the purpose of ascertaining
what could be expected in Ibat re
sped. •
.The Premier then assured tho dlrcc
tors that their request weuld be laid
before his government at au early date.
lie requested that the new plans, drawings and estimates, together witb a
copy of the engineer's, report and re-
eoinnieniliifioiis be forwarded te bim
accompanied by a formal letter making application for increased assistance
in ordor to bring the matter before tbe
government iu the regular way.
In the courso of bis remarks witb re
fcrenco tp the necessity pf Second Narrows bridge from a provincial standpoint. Premier Mcllride made some observations which appear to denote Important possibilities, to tbo effect tbat
Seattle was built up by tbe Yukon,
Spokaue was built up by tbe Boot-
I'liay from wbicb it becamo evident
tbat Vancouver and tho lower mainland should bo placed in position to
secure tbe benefits to bo bad from tbe
development of tbe Peace Biver country. The Premier coucluded by stating
tbat it was the desire of tbe government in deal fairly with Important
public works of tbe nature of the propoied bridge aud tbat (be company
might expect to bear wil bin a abort
time .tbeir decision witb regard to tbe
application for further assistance.
It is leu rued that instructions were
cabled to Sir John Woflo Barry and
Partners to proceed at once witb tbe
making of detailed plnns for tbe bridge
as finally accepted. Inasmuch as six
or seven weeks must elapse before these
plans can be coinplolcd, it is hoped by
that time financial arrangements he
tweeu Ibe government, tbe municipalities and the Company may be advanced te a stage tbat will justify tbo
Cpmpaiiy iu prpeceding at pneo tp call
for tenders for cpnitructipn.
Tbe bridge, which will be a single
deck bridge between fifty five and
aixty feet in width wilb track fur
railway trallic, a thirty-nine fppt road
way carrying double street car tracks,
ami witb ample provision for pedestrian
traffic. Tbe span will be 800 feet in
length and will be of either tbe bascule or tbe lift type. Tbis lut feature
is now under consideration by the firm
pf Sir .Inhii Wolfe Barry ami Partners
ami the directors will be guided by
tbeir advice in the matter. ,

Mayor McNeiih, however, took an
opppiite view of tbe matter. He favored tbe appointment. pf a night

tbe livei of the guests. Calamities bad

When tbe Lonidale Theatre was officially opened on Monday nigbt, bow

did not intrude promiscuously. Tbe

overflowing with a good humored and
admiring Ihning, most of the civic

at that.
A I'liiniiioneiiiniinl waa then iiinde pp

Becordi.
Cp to the present, purchasers have
been In Ihe habit of notifying tbo
rity authorities that tbo properly bail
changed bands so that notices of us
sessinent and taxation should not go
astray. This form of registration of
owners has heretofore been deemed
sufficient for rily purposes, but owing
to a recent decision Ibe rily council is
advised by iti loliciton to recoguiso
those owners only who appear on tbe
rerordi of the Land Kegislry office.
Unfortunately a great many never register tbeir deeds or agrccmenti,
Tbe Nortb Vancouver Und and Improvement Company hu received uu-
meroua assessment notices for 1313 for
property which it hu sold and wbicb
ha| since changed bandi two or three

Canada's Development
Exhaustive Treatleo by Prof. W. L.
Orant
Profeasor W. L. Grant, M.A. in a
recent issue uf Iho Geograpbicel Jour-
iinl. discoursed interestingly on tbe
conditions affecting tbo development
ol Canada. Speaking of tbe expansion
of the Domiuion uortbward, ho tie
scribed ber to be no longer a tape
worm, but resembles a wasp with the
waist at Wiuuipeg. Not a bale of
goods, not au emigrant can golhroiigh
from cast to weat without passing
through Ibat city. It is well for us that
war belween tho Britiih Kmpire and
tbe i'nited Stales is now—I hank Qodl
—practically unthinkable, fur I know
of no country in tbe world so easy lo
cut in two as Canada. A dash over
70 miles of Aat country into an unfor
(itie.l aud uufortifiablo cily on an open
plain, and Canada falls as hopelessly
in Iwu as a wasp bit by a carving
knife. Luckily sucb a war ii, u I
bavo said, now almost unthinkable as
onu between Kngland and Scotland.
This weakness will soon bo partially
remedied by the construction of tbe
Hudson Bay railway, from a point on
Iho maiii line of Ihe Canadian Nor
thorn, probably the I'u, near the pld
Hudson Bay Company's post pf Nor
way House, to Hudson Bay. The
mouth of Ibo Nelson rivor, 410 miles
from the Pus, icemi at fint light
more suitable, but in tbe words of a
well known British navigator, it ii
"the lut placo God Almighty ever intended for a harbor." Tha mouth ef
tbe Nelion ii encumbered by abode
running 18 miles or more out te sea.
Tbe deep channel through tbeee would
require to be elaborately buoyed and
lighted, and ia tbe actual estuary tbe
anchorage would have te be connected
mtik tbe Und by a pier er wbarf running out over the shoale fer nearly two
nilee from ehere, while the ifaoali
would u lit u peeeible, have to be
filled up by materiale brought in by
dredging. Tbia would provide a really
apacleue barbel with almost unlimited
accommodation, though with the un
doubted disadvantage of being com
pletely unprotected, eicept by shoals,
from all eaaterly and nortb-eeaterly
galea.
The real difficulty li that of tbe cli
mate, not ef the Bay, which ie in no
sense a froxan see, but of the Strait!
through wbleh alone agrees ii possible.
The general coocluion leeme to be
that navigation ii possible, though at
timei difficult, from about July IS to
November lit /od thla will be suffi
dent greatly to relieve the preient
congestion of eut bound traffic in Bep
tember, October and November. Whe
ther fear monthi' traffic for eteemeri
whose bowl may bave te be artificially
itrengthined, will be profitable ii an-
uther question. Tbat it will bu tried,
and that, if successful, it will bo four
months ill tlio year add greatly lo Ihe
breadth of thu euuutry, is undoubted.
Fer tho remaining oigbt month, wc
shell apparently closo up as quickly
did Alice un drinking Iho little
I...nl.
Tbo "puiing iif a port on Hudson
Bay would also help lu relievo another
Canadian disadvantage—the extremely
Billed nvuilublo cout line. To tho
.".i,il. we face landwards, and most of
our northern boundary is in Ibe grip of
Ihu Frnsl King. On the east Montreal
ami Quebec aro closed for between
four and five months,' ami a narrow
strip of Labrador, under Iho rulo of
Newfoundland extendi along Ihe coasl
for hundred! of milei. Whether Newfoundland, sitting gaunt ami desolate
like a fair fowl on her rock will join
the Domiuion is still doubtful; but Canada should as soon aa possible lake over
lllO  go.oriuii.ee  of   ■ ,1.1:.-, i.l..!   I,libra
dor. Down our wosl roast, buwever,
extendi the long strip of Aleska, which
it is to bu feared, forever curtails
our Pacific frontage Thus though we
have plenty of ports for all necessary
commercial purposus, we are never likely lo bu a seafaring people in anything
like Ibe pruporliuu of England or of
New Ziul.-iiid ,i fact to be borne iu
mind in all considerations of a Canadian
navy.
Begarding our river lyitems, no
country iu Ihe world hu such ■ net
wolf of interlocking ilroami aud
lakes. Tbey have conditioned much
of our development iu Ibe pest, and are
likely lo play at leul u important a
part in the future.
Jn Ibo maritime province!, forming
U tbey do, pari of the Appalachian
system, and draining into the Atlantic,
the riven, like Iboie of New Eng
land, are of local importance only, unfair though it seems to apply tbii term
to tbo St. John, with it! 400 miles of
varied scenery aod ita splendid vol
ume of waler. Our fint great continental itream ii the Bt. Lawronce,
which drain! the great lakes, and whoso
basin, lying largely in Canada, hu an
estimated area of 6:0,000 apuare miles
From lake Superior to Montreal there
li a drop of about $60 feet, which
bu been turmounted by ranals, and we
havo now a navigable route leading
weitward from Montreal fer nearly
3,000 milea ito tbe heart of tbe continent; while eastward from Montreal
for almoet llm miles the estuary of
the river and the Oul/ of Bt. Lawrence
form a direct route to tbe ocean for tbe
largest veaieii.
There le hardly one of these mull
tudlneue rivers and lakes upon some
part of which ateanien de nol ply. The
Bt. Lawrence lyitera hu been made na
vigable for large vesseli to the head

improvement will be by   canali at

At the. fpgu|sr monflily mooting pf
tlw board nf ichool friuleei which took
place pp Woiiiioniay night at ihe Oea-
tral schoul, Mr. 4. II. Htoucy presiding,
rniirosoiitiitivoi of tho Pacific May Oul
wsy Fire Alarm (lo.-Ud. ot Vancouver, subiiiitled for tbe board'1 ap-
proval their ingonious potflt si imtal-
Is'si iii s iinniiiiT at the principal build
Ingi iii Vsncouver.
Tho mechanism of the alarm, which
iiili.'n up vpry liiiln nal| ipaco, in 10

has sn inimoilialo effect upon a slomlor
ucodli! wbicb ii instruments! In sound-
Ing an alarm practically a few seconds
after tin Are, however small, bai broken out. Tbii action of the needle ii
occaaiouod by any luddoii and rapid
rising of tho tomporaturo of a room hut
ui tho same time ii net caused by ordinary steady increaao, inch ai that
sri.'iili'il by an onclosod Hro or lurnoco.
In pvor twolyo years the appliance
hai nover been known to record a
false 11 In 1 in. There were two kinds of
outfits which the company subiuittod
to the trustooi. Ono self-contained
and tho olher a larger contrivanco
altogether and connected direct from
the Arc hall. If the latter were adopted) thoy would uot get rebate on insurance from thu Undorwritere' Association, ao that uuder tho circumstances
Ihu company recommended the self-
contaiiied outfit. Speaking i|uite approximately Uio company estimated
tbat the school would require eleven
detectors und two gongs, ami t lint
Hu'■■!- Ihey would supply for uliout
$350.
Tho trustees wore shown the com
pauy's specialty iu tlio extinguisher
line. This waa an object lilio a mug
uiflcd cartridge, containing a liquid
with a temperature 1C degrees liulow
ten, consisting of fourteen ingredient./
und being 0,11011 times as effective aa
water.
It was eventually decided that ar
riingciiieiits abould lie made for tbo
trustees to visit the company's prem
isus on 1'cndor slroet and wilness a
demonstration of tho actual workiugs
of these two appliances.
The report for the month of November revealed that CSIi pupils are now
ciirullcd while the average atteinluuci'
at the city schools is 161,
The trustees then listened lo certain
recoinmeiidulions made by Ur. flyer.
The flrat embodioil a plea fnr more
fresh sir than ia at present allowed
lo pasa into the achool. Thu doctor
disagreed Htrongly with Ibe system of
hermetically sealing tho achool build
ing afler ausslon hour, uud keeping il
clotted through the uighl. lie did not
see the sense iu so "preserving the at
in"-ids,1, ull night und serving it up
hot next morning." lie was also op
posed lo tho provisiou of drinking
cups for geucral use. Tho fountains
were grcully preferable from a health
point of view. The Iruslcoa intimated
that tbo janitor would be instructed
on the fresh air proposition while olher
of Ihe doctor's recommendations would
receive  due  attention.
The board waa gratified to receive
loltera from parenta eipresaiug sal is
in,imu with the extra A/leeu minutes added lo the children's lunch hour.
Another letter aunuunced lhal Ihe
Teachers uf the public schools aro holding au entertainment 011 Ibo evening
of Thursday, Dec. ill iu the Uorlicul-
turpi Hall, when a feature of Hie pro
gram will be a reading contest open lo
girls and boys for which Mr. Mc
Naugblou bad offered a prize.
Un the motion of Mr. A. ti. Perry it
was decided Ibat the board should sup
ploiseni Ihis wilb a second prize for boy
and a second prize for girls; also a
prize for regular attendance and puc

EA0B8 ONLY
Tbe prospects of a lucceeif ul termination of tbe sustained effort! wbicb the
provincial government haa been making for several yeare to eecure constitutional and elective means for tbe
abolition of Asiatic immigration to
British Columbia appear to be growing
much brighter and give promlee of favorable development! in tbe near future.
Thie problem, wbicb ie one ef vital
importance to thii province, bai been
given mature consideration by Premier
McBride and bii colleagues, witb the
result tbat the governmeut is and bas
been for yeara unalterably opposed to
tbe immigration of any other than
member! of tbe Caucasian races. Tbe
policy of tbe government baa been
uniformly consistent witb tbe principle! which tbey believe to be Involved in tbia problem. Legislation has
been paased wbicb was designed and
intended te abolish oriental immigration to tbie province, wbicb legislation however wm nullified by tbe Laur
ier government. Baving been foiled in
tbe eudeavor to completely atop tbii
undesirable immigration, tbe government bas sought constantly and by
every means to reitrict lucb immigration as much as possible. Although
powerful influences have at timee been
set to work to overcome aucb barriers
as do exiit, for the purpoie of bringing in orientate, in largely increased
numbers, all such endeavors bave met
witb uncompromising and successful
resilience from tbe provincial government.
Premier McBride haa been vory mil
apoken with refennco te thii important question apd bai not hesitated to
bring bii personal influence to bear In
the effort to discourage tbe employment of orientals upun tbe part of those
industriee requiring a large number of
bands. Tho utterances ef the Premier
at tbe Trafalgar Day commemoration
recently beld in Victoria will illustrate
the practical, straightforward treatment
which tbis question receives from him.
Mr. McBride, in tbe courie of bii address in which he had beon dealing witb
matteri pertaining to tbe Canadian
navy, took occasion to observe tbat
there wae also a duty devolving upon
the employers of labor in saw mills,
canneries, fishery undertaking!, and,
kindred industries, where tbe major
ity of the help employed ie Asiatic.
Aa a matter of self-protection, from
consideration! of coldblooded business, or a form of insurance, the era
ployers of labor in these extensive
industries should provide for white
labor, instead of Orientals. Should
the country be attacked, tbe life of
theae induetriee would under present
condition! be imperilled, eince no rell
suce could be placed on Orientals te
Agbt for Canada. It wu to be deployed, the Premier further declared, thst
the fisheries of tbe province sre pats,
iag into tbe hands ef Asiatics. The
local waters ihould be the recruiting
ground! for men, to msn the Cauadian
navy and meet the demands ef Canadian shipping.
The efforts of the Premier and bii
colleaguei sre »y no nasal restricted
however te public utterance! aucb ae
the above, but in addition thereto no
opportunity bai been sllewed to paw
unimproved te exert evsry Influence
to promote the solution of the problem
upon a permanent ssd estiifsctery be
ii*. la the furtler pimeotlan of this
purpoee, during his recent visit to Ot-
tsws, Premier McBride tees np with
Hen. B, I. Borden, the deelrebliity at
providing eftetlve immigration reetric-
tiose witb s view to excluding Asistics
tie* British OoIiujbWs. Premier Bor
<ten etstsd li thst tim tMi before
s Nstsi Aet eeuld be passed, it would
be necesesry to obtain tbe sanction of
the Imperial authorities and promised
tbst tbe matter would be taken up with
tbe foreign oflico.
Within the past few days another
important development hai taken place
which would greatly strengthen tbe
position of this province, in that the
seven members of tbe Dominion house
for Britiib Columbia havo united to
urge upon tbe government at Ottawa
the adoption of tbe Natal Act,. Tbii
Act require! tbat ail immigrants shall
be able to read and to write the English language, which provision it is
evident would prove very effoctivo iu
preventing the iuflux of undeairuble-
population. It is understood that tbe
action of tbe aolid seven will bave
the effect of expediting matteri aud
tbat tbe whole question will be brought
to tbe attention of the British government at an early date.
Whotber future steps will result in
a speedy solution of the problem or
whether tbat solution will be found
somewhat difficult to accomplish is yet
to be seen, but in either ease it is
quite evident that material progress
has been mado and there is encouragement to couclude tbat the ultimate
purposo of tbe provincial governmeut
wili be accomplished sooner or lator,
and that British Columbia will bo made
a white man's land only.
THB BBWABD FOB  THRIFT
"Thero is nothing moro admirable
than thrift, and there ia nothing moro
pitiable tbau when tbe accummulations
of thrift are poekoted by the rapacious
harpies who prey upon tbo small Investor," wyi tbe Economist (Eng).
It is thereforo not only desirable,
but it ii absolutely necessary that wc
should bave some plan of investment
under which we may be putting aside
from week to week or mouth to month
a portion of our earnings to mako pro
vision egainat a "rainy day," aud
tbia plan ia afforded by tbe Canadian
government's annuities Act, which was
approved by members of both bouses
of pariameut. Tbe benefits to be derived from tbe purchase of a govern
ment annuity as a moans of making
provisions for old age are, it may be
said, far more bountiful tbau those
which may be dorived from any other
safe investment, ami far greator than
tbe people bave any idea of, simply
for the reaaon that with every payment of annuity is returned a portion
of the purchase money togethor with
compound interest at I per cent. If
Ihe annuitant lives tbe average uum-
ber of yean he may be expected lo
live according to mortality experience,
bo will receive back all tbat he hat
paid ia aa well ai tbe interest thcroou.
But thii li not all, for should he survive thii expectation the annuity will
not ceaae, but will go on until death.
It seems paradoxical that a man can
use bis principal without bii income Incoming leu, but tbii ii mado possible
under tbe Annuities System.
The age of five is tbe earliest age
at which payments for the purchate
at m annuity msy be begun, snd the
sge of 66 hat been fixed at the osrli-
eet age at wbicb, except for invalidity
or diiabiiity, sn snnuity may begin,
but ths longer it is deferred, the larger, will be the amount received.
Por example, the payment of tl a week
by a msn of St until he ii 66, would
give him sn annuity from tho latter
sge ef ItttM, payable quarterly;
while if he continued paying until he
wss tt, bli snnuity would be ♦3117.36,
In either cssa, if he died before tbo
dots fixed for ths annuity to begin all
hie payment! with compound interest
at i per cent, would be refunded to
his legs! rcpreaentstivei. Per a
ilighlly increseed psyment the snnuity would be guaranteed for 10 yesri
certain, or for life whichever ehould
be tke longer. Everyone ehould apply
for information in regard to tbie meet
provident eyatm of saving s system

thousand, 1'urnnis have brought their

Feast of tho New Moon, at the oponing
of tho seventh mouth, crowded with
ita sacred festivals. And the peoplo
of their own accunl, having a premonition that tlie voice of prophecy wouhl
eeasB, aud that they stood on the edge
of the silent centuries, had requested
ilml they might hear the written word.

esinta being to fiirtbarsnee pt tbe provision Of sn organ in Bt. John's
epnrcb.
TliS program, which eoniiitoil of two
parts, wai opened by Wr- Jnnlsn 9*1-
wood, who scampered up snd down tlio
pinnsi in tsvsi descriptive pieces ''Tba
Butterfly" snd "Tbo Bltsteri."
Madame Nnrininlun, whoso easy platform bearing was very pleasant to he-
bold, sang tbat excellent long
"Through Love to Light," and being
encored, treated "The Husury " witb sn
evenness of tono which tho work obviously requires.
Mr. It. li. Turner contributed a slumber song and waa also recalled. Ba
bas a voice of good sonorous quality,
but, if one might suggest, a livelier
'is*'ui's ditty (such as "Tho Bandolero" as promised on tbo program)
would have foliowod tho slumber song
moro effectively.
Miss II. Grace Malabor, A.H.C.M,
I..B.A.M. of Kerrisdale, appearoil us
solo violinist. Her sprightly rendering
of a mazurka evokod loud applause
which she acknowledged in a staccato
study of moro than avorage ability.
Miss Malahor also 'contributed a vocal
item, "ilroam o' Day Pill," a dainty
trifle of which ebe quit caught the
spirit. Ono thinks of Minn Malabor,
however, us pre-eminently a violinist.
Master Nickorsou lirst of all introduced us to a lady witb a delicate
air, then, boiug, uncoroi| uproariously,
Invited us miu his garden. Be did
this so sweetly and cheerfully that his
appearance was a distinct success.
Mr. P. Mlimn i'lanquo whistled a pic-
colo solo very cleverly and in reply to
a generous uucure, gave a realistic Imitation of Iwo men whistling in couso-
.'utivo thirds.
After a brief intermission the Pullics
begun business. Their progrum was
prefaced by an orchestral selection by
u company of stringers under tho lead
ershlp of Mr. Munro I'lanquo. The
opening chorus "O Canada" was then
rendered, being followed by a long
"The Silvery Moon," with choral ac-
I'linipuniiiient. Arrayed iu orthodox
pierrut costume, the Pollics acquitted
Ibemiolves very creditably. Tho humor, perhaps, was of a slightly ancient
order, but it was always to bo borne
in mind that Iho Follies comprised a
number of busy people who have littlo
time to learcb about fur new quips ami
mul. ■ The most successful item wus
a well known , uu, iri.il number in
which a quintette of straw-batted
suitors approached tho ladies of tboir
choice wilh the psychological argument
that one must luvo some one.
It was regretted that Mr. A. E,
Kealy and Mrs. Anders, through clc
vontb-hoor indisposition, could not appear as. Pollics. The caste was us
follows:
Messrs. (larratt, Matthews, Frsier,
Shaw, Spear, Smith, Adamiou, Iiooley,
uud Stovell.
Mcsdames Hewitt, Hoopor, lawson,
Maltby and Norinintou.
Misses Adamson,, Bissett, Bliss and

' What thou, is the climate pf Canada 1
The warm winds, gathering moisture

the rainfall on tbo Pacific slope is from
100 to 100 inches u year- As they pass
inward thp rainfall grows losa ,uml tbe
climste of tbo fertile valleys of Brifi

lain at its host.
Southorn Alburta was long supposod
tn bo semi-arid, tbo northern touguo
of the groat American desert, and was
givou up to riilili' raising, for which tho
light snowfall in winter made it suitable. Her fitness for this was increased by the well known phenomenon of
tho Chinook, a warm, dry wiud ,wliii.b
coming from the mountains, often means
a rise in temperature in a few hours
■■

snow (i|| not even a drop pf moiituro
remains The late Dr. Q. M. Dawson
bus pointed out thp likouciB pf (bis
plieiioinonon to (bp fohn winds pf Switzerland. By tho time th, western
winds bsve reached tb, summit pf (be
Bockics (hey have lost practically thoir
last drop pf inoiBtiire, while its rapid
condensation has retarded tbo cooling
process. Bushing down the eastern
slopes (hey sre warmed by tho increasing pressure, sud IP reach the plain
vpry warm sud vory dry. Tbii phenomenon bos in sl( probability something to dp with the truelessness of (be
prairie, clearing away ibe mow, drying
(be surface soil, and depriving it of
id moisture when needed by the sprouting treea. But pf late years tbere hus
been s series of wet seasons, snd largo
wheat crops sre new grown. Evon
ihould it prove that wet and dry sea-
sons recur in cycles, and tbat tbe dry
cycle ia ai band, much of ibe district
is now under irrigation, and Ion would
be minimized.
From the national point ef view our
climate kills out (bo unlit with grim
ellicii'iicy. Wo are not likely ever to
have a nogro problem; it is doubtful
if tbe most misdirected philanthropy
will svsil to koep alive the submerged

tenth.  Psoads ji   opt   wiibou( tbp

Bdjtor Eipresi!
plr,—Al tbs tins approaches fpr municipal elections, it behooves every
ofjissn of North Vaueouver to take
stock of tbt situatiou.
Wben tbe city flrst eame Into exist
pnee the citiaana worked togotber loyally, not only In public affairs, but
gave at sny rate mors! support to the
indlvidusl citisen in bla private undertakings. The result was tbst tbe city
was launched very successfully ami
started life under most promising auspices. But during tbe last two J1-'11™
or so, a good deal of sectionalism has
crept in. Patty, jealousy snd s dis
position |o knock tbo undertakings or
proposals of others has beou so apparent, both inside and outside the council
chamber. Owing to tbese undesirable
conditions many side issues and minor
questions bave been giveu undue prom
inence and 'be few big fundamental
problems wbicb demand prompt solution
have been obscured.
The greatest of these is undoubtedly
the question uf > villaining railroad
transportation. To try to build up a
city in these days without railroad
connection with tbo uutsido world, is
as futile an occupation as harking at
tbe moon, lu tbe case of North Van
couver, the flrat link of tbat railroad
connection witb the oulsido world is
the Second Narrows bridge. Once
tbat link is forged, tho rest is easy,
and North Vancouver, if ahe is alivu
lo her own interests, will spare no ef
fort to forge tbat flrst link promptly.
The bridge is goiug to cost more
lhan at flrst estimated. There are several reasons for this, First, tbe piers
on the nortb side will be very exponsive
owing to the difficulty of getting sol
id foundations; secondly, the opening
span has te be 2110 feet wide; thirdly,
tbo approaches oo tbe nortb side arc
very long; fourthly, a three track
bridge with the oecessarw wagon roads
apd sidewalks is considered the aim
lute minimum of accommodation nee
essary for tbe traffic. Tbis means lhal
the cost wili be raised from about oue
and a half millions to over two mil
lions and it follows tbat to get prompt
commencement of construction, tbo
governments must increase tbeir subsid
ies, and tho- municipalities tbeir sub
scriutions for stock. Tbe Dominion
and provincial governments bave prae
tic-ally agreed to tbis and tbo Vancou
ver eity council has also, I think, real
ize.l tbe necessity, and contemplate*
increasing its original subseripliou of
$200,000.
Let us look at tbisgs as tbey aro,
without tbe baio seen by those who per
sistently discount tbe future. At
present we are a somewhat inacceas
ible suburb of Vancouver. Without
a railroad along tbe harbor front, we
shall never be anything better. Until tbe Secoad Narrows bridge is com
menccd, tbat railroad will not be built.
If the construction of the bridge should
he postponed real estate values will inevitably shrink. Tbe immediate result
of tbat is tbat tbe assessment roll
shrinks in value. Tbe borrowing powers of the city would be reduced to a
minimum, or disappear, witb tho result
that tbere would be no money available for improvements and stagnation
would ensue.
The prompt construction of tbe
bridge ia, therefore, of fundamental Importance to tbe city of Nortb Vancou
ver. Beside it, all other questions become insignificant. It ihould be clearly understood tbst lack of funds ii tbo
only thing wbicb can possibly delay
construction of the bridge. Surveys
and estimates bave been made, snd
everything elso is in order to commence building esrly next spring.   '
Tbo diatrict of Nortb Vancouver bas
already subscribed HMMQ to tin
Brdge Company and will probably
subscribe more. Tbo city of North
Vancouver ought to subscribe at least
as much aa the district. The only alternative is that the city should guarantee tho interest on a large block of the
debenturei which tbe Bridge Company
bave power to issue up to ♦760,000.
If tbe municipalities between them
wore to guarantee tbe whole of this
issue, tpd both governments were to
increase tbeir subsidies, ibore would be
nothing to prevent immediate commencement of construction ss soon sa
the detailed plsns, now being drawn
up by Wolfe-parry k Partners srs
ready, and tendon bave boon called for-
It ii te be hoped tbst tbo citizens will
■ee te It tbst no msn Is elected to
tbo council wbo is not plsdged to one
or other of tbese courses.
