What's the Matter with
North Vancouver?
*. <■'
Of course, she't all right—but nevertheless llic 'Pearl ol llic Nnrlh Shore' needs publicity of the
right «orl, and needa il badly.   Therefore, the EXPRESS is preparing a grand special
Empire Day Prosperity Edition
lo be issued on May 23, printed in site abuul like lhe Saturday Evening Posl, on book paper and in
colors. I Ins edition will be designed especially lo l.ll lhe world what we arc doing and fully answer
lhe ijueilion
-•-Why is North Vancouver?
The management of the EXPRESS believes lhal now is llic time to shout and make a noise
loud enough to arouse the whole country lo lhe possibilities and boundless opportunities offered capilal
in this, the coming induitiial centre of the Pacific Coast.   Willi at least
Twenty-Five Millions to be Spent
within lhe next five years in new railways, terminals, harbor and wharfage improvements, drydocks and
shipbuilding yards, and the three-track wagon and sidewalk bridge across lhe Second Narrows, truly
no city in North America has a brighter future for building activity, commercial and industrial development.
The Empire Day Edition of the Kxpress will tell all aboul these great undertakings and make plain the
reason why Norlh Vancouver offers the greatest inducement   for  capilal   of any city on lhe   Pacific.
We want the co-operation of every business man and ratepayer
in North Vancouver lo the end that our efforts may result in lhe greatest good to thc greatest number. Experts have been engaged to prepare data and solicit your representation upon lhe Golden Rule basis
of merit alone. Several thousand copies will be printed and copies will be sent to every Board of Trade in
Canada.

The return of spring, bringing wilh
it Iho approach of Ily dry season, In
gelher with the unuuul movement ul' a
lurge population towards the forests,
for prospecting aud other purposes,
brings uguin forcibly lo the front the
problem of the prevention of lhe devastation of our forest ureus by lire. It
is gratifying to note the fait tbu| uuder
tIiu able administration of Hon. W. K.
Boss, Ibe control of this Important department will be iu charge of
a specialist of wide experience and lhal
the Held crops and equipment will be
larger und mure complete thuu ever
before.
One of ibe most serviceable departures which lias come lo our notice re
i-eully in connection with this import
ant problem, is a pamphlet published
by the Weslorn Forestry and Conservation Association, uu organisation of thc
principal limber owners uud mill oper
utors in the western stotes. The pum
piilet first urges the observance lit a
lew simple Imi effective rules us fol
lows:
llon'l loss away burning matches or
lobacco.
Don't muke a camp lire in leaves,nil
tea wind, or against logs where it may
spread or where you cannot be sure it
1- oul. •
llon'l burn u slushing in Ibe dry seu
miu without a permit and without tab
ing care to keep lbe fire from spreail
ing.
Hut out any Ire you lind if you can.
If you cannot do so, notify a lire war
ilea, some other ollicer or tbe laud
minor.
The Forester of Ibe association who
prepared lee pamphlet very tightly ob
serves "Next tl) food itself, uo >proiluct
is 111 necessary lo Ilie human race as
wood. People musl have il for fuel, for
their houses, burns and fences, to build
skips and ruiirouds und for utmost every
I article used by civilized man. Having
plenty of it, we uot only gel nil these
tilings cheaper ourselves, bul cau sell
yie product lo other countries who
lune uo forests."
The text of tke pamphlet consists of
a series of questions ainl answers, with
u .uw In interesting not ouly the
n.lull! 1,111 tlie school children us well
iu Ihe forest protection movement,
Tlie observations brought ikt cousti
lute sii'li good sense, plain trtilk and
unanswerable lugic iliat we produce the
entire series of questions uud Sinner*
as lollows:
"How important is il to us lo be
11 Isl.. tn supply these oilier slates and
couil&iesl"
"Tke forests ure one of our chief
ineaiu of support, as lumbering is a
greal industry. It briugs iu more Ikon
IVltMtflW a year, or over 1838,000 u
.lay in California, Wellington, Oregon,
Mako ami Montana, und almost nil of
tins immense sum is paid out for labor

i-iiiploThieiii for so many people or
brings iu so much money. Lumber
makes up seventy-five por cent, iif all
tke freiglit we skip out of tkese statea
by rail or boat."
"Alide from making our industry in
lumber ro valuable, iu wbat otber ways
'   are forests unefull"
"They keep the flaw of our si renins
even, preventing floedi in the wot ma-
son and furnishing water for irrigation
mul powor duriug the dry season, they
pay luxes to support our government.
our roadi aud our schools, tbey shelter
. our wild game and fish and iu many
nllier vv ivs make our coui.liv healthier
and pleanantcr to live io."
"What would happen if our forests
were diiltojeAt" ■ - - •
"There would be bar.' limes for
everyone, for our whole system of living lias been built up witb Ihe ui{ of
foreit and water as ono of our cbiof
foundations. Many industries would be
completely dwtroyed all would suffer
aeriouily.
"Ii bhete any danger ef tblil"
"N«t ia a 'Ingle day or ymt, but a
very gytoi danger tM will cont rapidly enough to Injure ui all.    Jndaad, we
1 already being injured moro Ihun wo
due."
'Howl"
"Hy wasting our forests instead of
using tbem uml especially by carelessly
burning Ihem. Although not ulwuys
us serious us IuhI year, forest fires destroy on a yearly overage in these live
slates,    timber, wbicb    if   saved for
manufacture, would bring in    n.	
lllll). We not only luse this income, but
havo to pay u higher tux on the rest
uf our properly uiul higher prices for
forest material which escapes. Thoie
fires kill tke young trees, so new forests
nn not follow' the old ones and by leaving the ground bare, also hastens the
rapid run-off of snow and rain und
muke our slreums low in summer. Often
tbe fires destroy houses, fences and
cuttle und many nnnum lives are lost
as well."
'What causes .these wasteful fires!"
'Carelessness most always. People
forget lliul tke wind uud liul weatker
innv> make even tbe smallest lire spread
beyond control. Thinking 110 burni
will come uf it they leave the cump lire
burning, tliruw away burning matches
or tobacco, burn slashings or brush
heaps without watching them closely,
or run logging or railroad engines wijj)
out screens to slop the sparks. AL^lie
time thoy see 110 danger, but a few
hours or days afterwards the fire spreads
ami becomes so fierce that it cannot
be slopped."
"If this is so likely lo kappen why
do not people always thiuk of it and
become careful f"
"Because tbey do not realize how
much it will injure tbem, Sometimes
ilny I kink only the owner of the tim
ber bus uny interest in tke matter, anil
tkat be ought lo luke ull necessary
steps lo put tne fire out. Tbey forget
that the owner stands only about a Iif 111
of tke loss uml tbut four fifths is borne
by ull Ike rest of tbo people of the
slute, including themselves, because
everybody shures in thc money uml
good thut come from tke forests."
"If lins is true, is it not as wrong
lo set tjre to the woods us tu set lire
to u Iiiium' or city!"
"It is oven more wrong, for we can
build bouses, but nol uew foresls. Wncn
Sun Francisco wus destroyed by fire
California did nol have to beur ull the
loss. It wus spread all over the world
by imursnro. Money quickly came in
to rebuild the city; everyone was given
work and In two or three years busi'

'Tims the best kind of forestry lows
and allow plenty of mono} to carry
them out. Firo patrol is particularly
neceasary."
"Whut can we do to help!"
nit js the duty of everyone, young ur
old, not only to bo caroful with lire,
but to teach as many others as possible
how important tbis matter is. After
all, everyone should remember tbat
care with smull fires will ulwuys prevent
big ones. Tho main thing is never to
forgot tbe simple rules uf preventing
flrei. Most of tbcm aro laws und uny
ono ia liable to arrest for failing to

The above observations urn so umleni
ably sane and so apt with reference lo
tho situation iu this province thai litey
are deserving tbe careful attention of
all who uro interested iu tke protection

Tlie American Society nf Knginoen
holij its annual dinner ut Obii-ngn r„
contly, anil |ireniinoiit among tlie speakers was tlie Hon. V. I). Monk, Minis
ter of I'ublie Works of the Dominion
of Canada.
Home misapprehension may have
arisen amongst you us to the precise
significance of the verdict rondorod by
tho Canadian people, u few monthi ago,
upon the reciprocity issues mil,milled
lo them in a general election. There
should be no misunderstanding between
countries so closely relatod as ours,
and I am glad, us a member of* the
government which our recent elections
brought into power, to be your guest,
and thus to manifest our deep interest
and sympathy with the all-important
aims uud aspirations of your society.
Destiny hus placed our countries side
by side on this i tlncnt.   We, as Can
adieus, are deeply attached lo our in
Stitutioni, to our Hag, to the niiiinten
ance of all that has made us whut we
are.
That sentiment, which no people in
the world ean appreciate better than
the American people, and, beside thut
ntimeiit, the purely commercial us
peels of tho proposed arrangement*
liscossed during the last campaign, are
thc only rcusons of thc people's de
isious.
No other motives whatever ran be
assigned or exist. We all desire In
maintain the most cordial ami friendly
relations with lhe great Republic, our
only near neighbor.
Now let me 'give you some of lhe
data brought lirlighl by lhe i-areful
researches made to date.
The information at ham! regarding
developed water-power in Canada is
fairly complete aud reliable and slums
lhal a total of out 1,11(1(1,0(10 horse
power has already beeu developed.
Thie developed power is divided
among the different provinces us fol
lows:
Ontario, Ii32,00() horsepower del el
oped; Quebec, 300,000; British I'olum
bia, 100,00(1; Manitoba, 411,0110, und
other provinces .'13,000  horse power.
Of the different uses mude of wo
ler power, Uie generation of cleetricol
energy heads the list with three i|uar
tcrs of a million horse power; Ihe pa
per .and pulp industry comes next, with
over 16,000 horsepowr, and the re
maindor is divided among ulher induH
tries, chiefly lumber and grist mills.
This total of over 1,000,0011 horse po
wer is being increased very rapidly by
new enterprises, and judging by the
size which individual additions are us
sutntug, il is fair to assume that it will
bo doubled in the course of u few yeurt..
The information regarding the poten
tialily of Canada with respect lo wn
lerpowers only covers a smull portion
of the total nreu of the country. "'Ik
total obtained from this in'o-'eulion
comes lo over 2,000,0011 horse power,
but does not include ull of Hie large
rtutcr powers available in Ine northern
portions of Ihe various provinces.
Houghly speaking, Ihe territory co"
cred is less than 50 per cent, of Ibo
Domiuion, so ,'i..t il is fair lo eslimclc
that there is nn ctpial amount in.the
unsurvcyed pari, which would bring
the tolal for the whole Dominion lo
ovor 40,000,000  horsepower.
Many misleading statements hnve
been published on the power possibil
ities of Niagara Kails. Mosl of Ilies"
arc baaed on unfair assumptions For
instance, taking Ihe overage discharge
of the river wilh ils total full of .'120
feet from i.-'I.e Krie lo Duke Ontario,
it may be said that, theoretically X,
000,000 h.p. cau  be developed,
Tbe total full between jj^e Erie and
Uke Ontario may be $vided inlo two
stops, (1) the Palls j,,0,„,r) Bn() (g)(
thc descent in the rivi), |H.lQW the Falls.
Taking very conserve ..„ fi((Ur(,g 0f
minimum flow, the toi^j power avail
able in the Falls propfc, ,.. » 700,000 h.
p. and in thc descent)|)Cjow ,iK, p\,|]s,
1,000,000 h.p., giving/, total of 3,7.00,-
009 'a.p. But aa Hi,', Niagara rival is
an international ttjcwi, Canada'»share
would be only half 0f this, or },800,00<i

Great lowor Possibilities
The total Sfoww in the St. L»wrencc
whwo it tnmt put at the internation
al boundary, namely, in tlio Galop,
Cardinal, lro(|liois, Plat am) Long
Plat ami Dong Himlt rapids, is ovpr
1,0110,0110 horse power, Canada's shure
of this being 500,000 horse power. Ijow-
er down, where thii river is entiroly in
tlie province of Ijuelnie, ut Iho Cotenu,
tSnlurs, Cascudes and Dachinu liapids,
the i'.i .ilde dei, do io::, 'ni gives a total
of nearly 1,400,000 liorse-powur.
. Tho water powers of the Ottawa ri
ver were given a special study, In connection with the Georgian Hay Canal
survey. This demonstrated that the
possibilities of this river wero immense, uud would be more than trebled
when the wuler is regulated and the
muxiiuum full rendered utilmililo by
dams. Whi|e the total possible devel
opulent under preicnl conditions is
ovor 400,0110 horsepower, with regulated water uud improved river, ti is
estiiiiuled ul nearly 1,300,000 horses
power.
Wilh 40,(11111,111111 horsepower, n mod-
ernle eatlmate, disseminated over Canada, and a huge supply of raw nialerial
lying everywhere, u fair Held presents
itself for industrial expansion, and
gincering prospects should ho good.
The real problem in thia couiioctiou,
as you are wall aware, is lhe proper re
gelation, lu the public interest, of these
great natural resources of the notion,
so that they may beiielit thu people ut
liirgo ami not a privileged few. Our
legislation. In this regard, leaves
much to be desired.
