Ht. Paul's achool was iiu institution
I'ur lhe purpuse uf Iuukiug after desli
lute children or whether il wus un ordinary educational establishment tu be
taxed al the same "rule as other similar
schools of the eity. If it was tho
former, the cily sulicitur hud written
to Hie effect Ihut it should be OXOIUpl
from taxation, accenting lu the per

These were wards uf the government.
The cuuucil hud uutbing to do with

This means "while'' children,'and

miserably wet lhat an exertion of

to lenli.'i- that tbe year had progress
cd nu further Iiiun September. As a
result uf this uuuvuidablc state of affairs, aud to some extent iti consc
ipiciicc of tbe insufficient advertising
po|icy adopted by tbo uianugomoi t, the
attendance was uudcuiuhly poor, a fact
lo be all the more deplured since, its
a miscellaneous exhibition, the ninth
annual efl'nri uf the society was distinctly better than any in precious
year's. Eveu bad the weather been
ideal, it cuu safely be surmised tbut a
very inudequute prupurliuti of ll.e ut

The exhibition wus furmally opened
ou Ki nin v evening by Reeve May. Mr
Keene, in prefacing the ceremony, men
liuncil thut since last year the linau

considerably bettered. The urganizutiun

The society, he added, was not in
tending to become an athletic nssocia
tion. Su sunn as tlie funds in eouuec
tion with to new department could
be dispensed witb, thc society's wish
wuubl be nut lo derive revenue from

Reovo May Ibeu declared the oxbi
bition officially open tu the public. The

took his listeners back tu Ihc prime

tho apples remained the favorite fruit
of mankind as iu the period of Adam.

September  10,   WV3.
Ou Saturday, September ills!, tbe
rulepuyers uf Ihe District Municipality
of West Vancouver will be called upon
tu vote on a bylaw to authority tho
ralalitg by way of loan of tbe sum uf
$11111,111111 for the purpose of the pur
chase of additional shares of tbe capital stock of the Wost Vancouver Ferry
' cu in, .Limited.
This bylaw has been framed in pur
sitanee of tbe energetic policy relative
to uuu.{,,.11,hi,in mailers which has
characterised lhe administration of the
present council, Since the ferry system
pussed intu the Uuu.I., uf a company iu
which the municipality uwus the controlling interest the service lias lieen
greatly improved and amplified, while
al the same time the passenger rates
huve been considerably reduced iu
favur of Ihe actual resident pupulaliuu.
The rapid development of the trallic
hus emphasised the necessity for still
,,,.,),, advancement, iu urder thut a
service may be provided whicii will eu
able the dislricl lu Iako advantage uf
llie opportunities which present them
selves for a steady and gratifying influx uf pupulutiun.
Wilh this purpose iu view, it is the
desire of the ferry cuinpany tu purchase
u new and modern ferry boat, built
expressly fur the Vancouver-West Van
couver ruu.' The boat which the directors of lhe ferry company now have in
luiiul would cost sumewhere in the
neighborhood uf sixty thousand dullurs,
would have a carrying capacity of up
proximately two hundred, and would
embody all Ihe provisions for safety,
convenience and speed whieb expert
murine architects uud the best ship
builders could incorporate iu its design und construction,
ll is likewise the wish uf the Hoard
of Directors to procure suitable prup
iiii uud lo establish up lu dale ferry
terminals- at Wesl Vaueouver. ll is
considered advisable to purcbaae such
u pruperty ut us curly a date as pus
sible, tu urder tu have the privilege uf
u wide selection al thc comparatively
moderate prices al whicii wuterfroiil
properly can be purchased ut the pres
eut lime.
There are Iwu prime requisites which
experience has shuwu lo uttuch tu gul
iui|i tin- maximum benctils.fruni u ferry
ii'iiiir from Vaiicuuver tu Wesl Vun
"ouver, namely, lirsl lhal Ihc actual
length of lhe waler run be made as
short ns possible and thut Ibe ferry
bout In' of such a nature us to cover
tins run us ijiiickly auil as sufcly as
pussiblc. Tm- Hoard of Direclurs huve
expressed their determination to be
guided by these requisites, both witli
reference lo Ihc locatiuu uf Ilie Weet j
Vuucuuver I'erry terminals and willi;
reference to the type of boat lo be'
built, and should the ratepayers ratify,
tin- byluw which is now before Ihem
lhe policy of Ihc board will, therefore,
I e lo enable Ihe public to reach Wesl
Vuiu'oDU'r from Vaueouver by the
shortest ruute compatible witb Ihc cuu
U'liieuce of the public ufter lauding
uiul with the greatest speed compatible
with absolute safety.
One of lhe must significant signs of
the times as lo the prugress aud pro*
parity which the present era uf p-uwlh
und development implies fur Canada is
found in Ihe "Hack to Canada" move
ment which has set iu emoug aalii*
Canadians whu for a lunger ur shorter
period have beeu resident iu thc i'nited
Stales. There arc prububly hut very
lew I'uuii,luiis comparatively who have
any conception of the magnitude which
this movemcul is assuming. As au inde.'
to tbe strength ami possibilities of lire
movement recent occurrences in Ihc
New Englaud states may be cited.
Ou Juue l'lth tbe firat "Hack tu

lie groatly exercised over thi* bevy
evn,lu.-. which it is i.u uuin. u.l is bul
iu ils initial stages as yet, and llie
nun.ipupei:, arc publishing many arti
eles lu try tu stem the tide.
The future uf the movement is big
with promise to tbe effect tbat Cunudu
is i iiiiiiiiu to her owu agaiu with reference to population lust tu tbe States
and will get liberal interest buiiides,
Following this special colonist 'rain
a special Iruin left Huston, Massui'hus-

guests of the Cuiiadian government npd
upon Ihuir returu it is expected that
they will join Ihe rauks of thc recruit
ing agents fur the "Back lu Cunuda"
At the present time, lecturers in the
employ of the Canadian government
are going from city tu city in lhe New
Englaud stales telling publicly uml
privately, in seasuu and out uf sea
son, tbe advantages of Canada. A
special work is being dune aiming the
Freuch i'una,liuu:, uf Ihe mill cities,
mauy uf whom it is claimed are scarce
ly able to muke a living under exist
iug cuinlitiuns in the cities m whicii
they now reside.
The i unu,nun government agent de
dares lhal lhe movement is meeting
with pronounced success. Fulluwing the
train uf June tilth ami July -lib it is
the intention, he declares, lu ruu ulher
I ruins lu Canada tuktng parlies uf New

country uml tu tlieir number will be
added very many native burn New

jiopuluted cities wbo will seek the wide
new pui i ;,,ii. uf Canada for their future
Information such Ss the furcgoing
reveals ihe fact that Ihe immigration
movement from the United States tu
Cauada is not confined lu any particular
■ i ■ tiuu. but that inn east tu weal
throughout iu entire Ihree thousand
miles uf length the forty-ninth purul
lei is crossed not by well marked
trails but by broad ami well wuru
highways along which is travelling a
great and steady stream of Ihe very-
best class uf immigrants lhal ever
fell tu the lut uf a new country, bound
fur Cauada tu seek a new home under
mure advautageuus cumlitiuns ami to
lend their assistance in working oul
the high destiny uf this magnificent
cuunlry of ours, lhe lasl uuexproprialcd
heritage of the human race upun the
North American continent.
A fairly accurate estimate of whul
this particular influx uf populaliun
means lo Canada may be gathered
irom Ihe figures contained iu the follow
ng paragraph, which is believed tu be
,,..il,, nn. aud tbe sentiments uf which
tally closely witb thc information

The iluu, .1, K Klenijug, premier of

a visitor tu Ihe North whore yesterday,
and was shown its many charms b)'
Messrs. T Kennedy, 1. Norman Ken
nedy and J. M. Hay, Mr. Kennedy's
automobile being utilized for Ihe pur
pose. The premier iiieideutally paid
brief calls un a number uf erstwhile
New HiiimiMcl.il", ami was plainly
regretful thut lm. visit lu North Vancouver was necessarily such a short
one., He was very favorably impressed
wilh everything he saw uu this side
uf the Inlet, the occasion beiug his first
visit to this cily ami district. The
premier wus taken to l.yuu Valley,
Norlh I.onsdale, and wuuld have duubt
less inn du-d up in lhe urlhudux fashion,
al Capilanu, had it uut been fur the
1 nun,lum Club luncheon which was In
lie accorded him at ouo o'clock iu Vau

011 the attractive appearance whieh thc
eily presented in Ihe bright sunshine,
uud ventured a prophecy thai North
Vancouver wuuld uut be lung without
u railroad, l'remier Fleming left by
the nuuii buut, after a visit which he
pronounced lu be shurt lull very enjoyable.
