The (Otiial payment by the provincial government of over four hundred
thousand dollars, distributed in sums
averaging about ten thousand live
hundred dollars to the head of each
family of the Hongheea Indian reserve,
wbich was done on Tuesday of thia
week, marks what is really the closing
act ip a project, the agitation toward
the coniunimation ol which covers a
period ol upwards of thirty years.
The valuable tract of land with its
magnificent waterfrontage aud large
area, lying in tin- heart of the city ol
Victoria, hitherto known as the Song-
li.es Indian reserve, now belong, indisputably lo the government ol the
province ill llriii.-h Columbia. It il

it is estimated thut by so doing the

The completion ol tbia purcbuse fi mn

Irom tlie lad that it diapoaet of a
long .tending grievance at tho provincial capital, but alio in that it oa-
tshlishe. a precedent to which other
cities in tho province, similarly situ
stsd may appeal in tlie endeavor to
secure possession of Indian reserves
lying within their Imunduriei.
While tho government at Viotoriu
might possibly not be disposed to go
quite so far lo assist other cities al
it wai coniirlered advisable to go in
order lo assist th. capitul city, there

them to carry negotiation, to a sue-

right sort and the time seems opportune lor approaching the provincial
government in the endeavor to enlist
their assistance in the city's lavor in
Ihis important mutter.
"01 all tho civilized nations in the
northern hemisphere Canada ia doing
Ihe least to treat the public timber
land, es a permanent unset."
Tlie above is an assertion which the
average Canadian citizen will nut find
pululcuiilc, and whidi, at first thought
he may feel inclined to resent, but
when it ia understood that it is the
utterance ol Mr, 11 II. KucHillan ol
the Dominion Foreal Service, tho luct
will lie rcci,gni/i«l that there must bs
good ground lor the ussortion and
that tho situation with respect-to tht
preservation ol forests in Canada is
such as to demand that plum shull be
devised and oxeculed upon a much
larger scale than has yet boon attempted lor the protection ol timber landa iu all parti ol the Dominion.
Mr. Macilillan states that during
1WJ the lot* through forest fires
throughout Canada amounted to
$210,400,000 and that thc total espon-
diturea upon tire fighting were $330,
000. Proceeding, be declare, that
there can be little doubt that this
total of fire low is much too amall.
In ths first place, the value uf the
limber destroyed is arbitrarily placed
at 11 per thouund leet, board measure, while ths actual value ol tfae
troea aa they stand in the lore>t
would average much higher than
this. No account is taken ol the damage done lo young growth, which,
while not now actually salable, will
iu the course ol a few yoara have con-
siderable value. 'An enormous a-
mount ol cordwood/ to quote the
word* ol tho writer, 'destroyed, in districts where it now has a value, and
in other districts where it will soon he
needed, bus neither been estimated nor
valued.' Many fires have undoubtedly
occurred in districts remote Irom present aettloment, and have destroyed
large quantiliat of timber which ulii
mutely would command a ready market.
In dose rdation.hip witb tht problem thut outlined by Kr. MacMillan
ia lb. report ol th. committee appointed by Ihe Canadian Fore.try Aa-
■ocitition tr, investigate the laws ol
thc Dominion and ol the various pro-,
viiicee concerning the protection ol the
forests from fire. The report dodurcs
thst tha people are ready for a »u-

which threaten, to wipe out a large

the system in operation in British
Columbia is laid along the most approved lines and timt it requires only
to bs amplified and extended in such
manner us experience may dictate, in
order to develop into an organisation
representing the' highest attainable
sfjiciency. Inasmuch ss British Column
Inn now possesses one ol the largest
remaining timber areas in the world,
it is in keeping with the fitness of
things that this province should stand
in the van as among the province* of
Canada in the matters pertaining to
forest preservation. It is understood
thst the estimates passed at the session of the provincial legislature which
recently prorogued set aside a largely
increased appropriation lor purposes
ol forest fire protection and that tha
operations in course of prepare
tion for the coming season contemplate a great udvance upon anything
hitherto undertaken. There ia no department ol provincial interests mora
worthy tho most generous treutmunt
or a moat encrgotic policy than is the
protection ol our forcsta from the ravages of the Humes.

not appoar to be *boroi)ghly understood, by tbe ratepayers.   Wi ,tePt
wliicb it it proposed to carry oUL immediately is ol a most uiius.iul an:
tup, and if a longer timo wors given
to consider the grave consei|iniiHMs
wbjcb will surely follow such u pro-
cocding, it is not unlikely Hint tbe
more thoughtful and far seeing pf our
citizens would emphatically protest
against it. It is well known how apathetic tbe public sentiment is in civic
matters which do not 1 ouch tbe pocket, but a little reflection will show
tbat the dosing of one of tbe principal thoroughfares will seriously bumper new industries which might contemplate coming to tho North Shore, as
there would be no means of. acooss to
them from tho landward side
Could anything bo more absurd ?
Wo spend thousands ol dollars in advertising our aplendid waterfront and
then at the first request Irom an
auitiBcmont concern, deal a i'«ithly
blow to a large part ol it by making
it inaccessible from any ' traffic
from ihoro. And what are we putting?
Nothing but the, most common sort ol
public playground which will lose its
attraction   for  North   Vancouvoritcs
liuiily nfi.'i being opened and which
will be a doubtful attraction to draw
thc iiium 1 , crowdi of plouiurc sctk-
ith which it ii expected will pour into town, The price ol waterfront property ia quite high enough jut now

without much to jmtify the incroeic,

genius to see that North Vuneouver
will receive a act buck compared wrlli
which the uncertainly regarding the
Second Narrows Bridge will be I,.nl.nl
upon aa trivial.

Apart from tho fact thai property

1 conaider that a fireproof ichool cannot be built for tbe sum stated, $42,-

tho building must not exceed tbe lie

tho lowest tender on tbo plan of tbo

exceeds hia estimate by fi per cent, he

By cardul inquiry I have found out
that thu iiigbt-roomcd fireproof achool

Moreover, Ihe uilimtitei ol tbe Vancouver achool board for the ' current

eiuln roumud fireproof achool building
to meet thc incrcusud price ol material und labor. If an architect, myaelf
for instance, should submit u design

of cost given by reputuble authorities

Editor Espress:
I find that on Saturday nest Ih* 8th
last., we a* ratepayer* of th* City
of North Vancouver aro re.iue.ted to
render our. verdict by ballot ss to
whether or not tb* highway known
as the Esplsnsiis sbsU fa* dined ot
open to tha public ia favor of the so-
called "White City." I am not going
to daal wilb ths nitrite or demerit*,
il sny, regarding tb* Whit* City. 1
am only going to apeak of ths public
rigfatt, to a public highway which hai
bean registered -ss tucb aad that too,
without s shadow of s doubt. I regret
very much tbat tbs council rushed tba
lime of voting before we bsd time to
publish tbe Inn ttslui of our position so tbst ths ratepayers would fas
educated on what they were voting
for. The council hat the power to
close a street by by-law, bat by so doing they must make due compenution
for damages lu.lained thereby to owner* or occupier* ol, or other person*
interested in real property (Sec. 251),
but they can doss s (treat only in
the interest ol ths public snd not s In
vored few. Again tbey can Lease
city property for s term not eicesd-
ing twenty years, receiving (hereupon
the beet rent obtainable with provisos lor re-entry, or non-performances of
the covenant, therein contained.
Now it is the duty of the Council to foster and promote snd open
up all highways possible snd to keep
open sll .treet. dedicated for the
good of industries, placet oi business,
and residents, ao that we can attain
the prosperity we are struggling lor.
Sport, and pleasure will follow in tin
wake of proeperity every time, but if
we put pleasure snd sport before >
dustry snd buiinesi, we put the cart
in front of the horse. Again our
delegates at Ottawa urged . on the
government the need of eitending the
Eiplanadt in Iron! ol the Mission snd
w. alio urged on the provincial government the desirability ol o|ienlng s
better highwsy through Moodyville,
and yet soma of the aame delegates
are supporting the doling of tbe Mine
highway right in the midat of our
greatest induatry and butine*. inter-
all, than in th* fses of thst* fact, cm
again approach our governments
lor aid toward our public avenue*
when we have betrayed our truit.
Should our ciliwni be so unfortunate a. to render their verdict on Set-
unlay next to close tucb sn important highway and commercial avenue
they will rsise tb* highest monumental misctrrisgt ol judgement ihat wss
r registered against the Cily of
North Vancouver.

Editor Eiprees:
Befcrring to by-law a'dvortlsad regarding thia matter ss a general approval ol tbe scheme was given by tho
Board ol Trade and I heartily concurred in it, I deem it necessary to oiler a word of ssplanatiou as I cannot
personally aupport the ichcme ss pro-
lentod by tho By-law. It waa clearly
atated to the Board by the promoter!.
1. Tbat only a temporary cloturtol
Eiplatmdo would be required and that
lull proviiion would be made lor nee-
oasary through trullie; and
3! That thcro would be no clemoiit
of a ili'iiuii nil/inn character - allowed
within tho grounds.
Tho bylaw proposed the absolute
doling ol tho Eiplunado with a back
lottor from Mr. Koith that ho would
reopen it under certain condition. I
havo the greatest postiblo rcapect for
any obligation Mr, Keith may givpin
the matter but u inle <ii tbo whole
gnrdena or tlto death ol Mr. Keith
might ao change the aituution aa In
make it a very difficult obligation to
enforce. 1 tun enough ul a Bcolobiunn
tn believe   in the   nl. .1 ex| I   by
WI111I we have wu bold."
I undent und that a part ol thu
■■i-liriin- ii the saliiblisbment of a dance
hall on (he grounde. Thai I consider
a very dnngoroui courie. Our ililicr-
I'ni lui'nl i.i|.iiiiuiiiinii:i have rn..ii] li
of dance gathering! lo aatialy Ihe
mini fuitidioiia among ua, but aa
thoy oro very much ol lho nature of
family gathering! the clement a ol dunger ure nut proton! to any extent ut
them. Those who know the character
ol Ihe general dance ball will lw the
in i.i to admit that tho condition!
there are very different. I am proud
to think that our city aimi at being
11 clean town.
At the Hoard ol Trudu mooting nov-
erui ol ua ventured to auggeat a dif-
tiiiiliy in getting an earning of th.W
lies day for thii idieiuo Irom legi-
liiniiii- and orderly buiineii. The pro-
moton thought they knew better uml
were prepared to give all ncceiiary si
siirnncoa but there ia nothing in tin
Bylaw lo prnvido any guarunlco or
protection. If the rea|Hinaibilily for
tbe decision on tbia matter ia lo be
Isid on the electors then tho clcctora
ahotild have had thc lull. 1 posaible
information laid befnrc llicin. Ou
Sajitrdny wc muat vole on the infui-
