After e lengthy confabulation, Ihe

te publish and after listening lu the
opiuion of Mr. Held uu the existing

lo make urrungemenls witli Hie Hank uf

construction of the new furry lmal.
Aid. Dick strongly advocated tbu
immediate repurchase uf I lie old bonds,
arguing thai I. wai upon tbii repre
Ki'iilaliuu that tha cincture were called
opon to vol" on tbe ferry bylaw paued recently.
The ratepayers had ordered the clly
council tn guarantee tbe ferry board'•
ni'wi'si debenture iuue, under tbe Impression that ih" $128,000 worth of
bunds   would   be  immediately   bought
back agaiu. He knew tbat maoy of
the voters would not have voted io favor of the bylaw. In build tbe new
steamer if tbey did nut think that tb*
lirst mortgage would be lifted from the
assets uf the company.
Mr. Held staled tbat the mortgage
bad in the Drsl place been put upun Ihe
Iiiui debentures in order to secure the
city, not for the benefit of tbe bond
holders. Thin precaution was taken lest
difficulties i-li'-ni-1 aria* iu ceuneetiun
with the ferry board. Together with
otber members of the meeting, My. Baid
disfavored the idea of forming a sub

imagined on Tueiday night tbat the

prospect appealed hugely to tbo younger generation and tbeir disappointment
was doubtless keen wbeu Christmas
Day dawned rather miserably, wilb a

an iuilial step it had lieen definitely

Christmas at St. Agnes'
Christmas Day wae a vary happy one
in "Hi. Agnei' cbureb. Two services
were held.' Al t am. Ihe vicar, Hev.
Dr. Fea, wae assisted by th* Bev. Norman Thompson, incumbent of Lynn
Valley, and at which tbere wa* far th*
largest number of communic»nts:ln tk*
history of the parish, mor* thay treble
of Ibal on sny former occasion. At It
am. the full surpliced choir of men and
boyi war* present aod tb* service was
well rendered, th* congregation joining
end Narrowi bridgi. The outstanding
feature, had al| been decided upon hy.
tbe department aad tbe Hridge Company halt, beeu advised accordingly. He
understood tbat the Cumpany desired
to hsve j lii' decision witb regard tn *
tbe height of the bridge reviewed,
with a view to procuring the accept-
iiiieT nf a height of furln live instead
of fifty live feot. He had been in cuu-
lultation with tbe company's solicit- «
on et Ottawa with regard tn this fua
tur* and Ihuughl it probable that no
serious difficulty wuubl be encountered
iu procuring this amendment to th*
decision of Ibe department. He hoped
lo have an opportunity uf conferring
wilh thc Board of Directors of the
Bridge Company befure returning to
Ottawa wilh regard to the matter. In
bis opiniun il wuuld lie a good idea to
have a small influential deputation
composed of one representative uf tbe
Bridge compeny, nne for lhe.city of
Vaucuuver and uue for lhe Norlh Shore 1
go to OtUwa for the purpose of conferring with the minisler personally
with reforence tu this phase of tbo
bridge problem.
Discussing the movements uf the governmeut dredge Maslmlun, Mr. Stevens
slated that Ibe new watcrinaius fur fue
.-ily bf Vancouver hail now arrived
and it iinni.1 be possible lo resumu
opcraliuns ou Parthia shoal at an early
ilale. During the delay wbicb bad occurred uu .111 uunl of the. necessity ef
changing tin location of (lie water
mums across First Narrows, the dredge
had uuf been idle, Imi had been cu
ploy e.l tu good purpuse at Coal Harbor.
The work al thai point was now com-
pb'ie.l ami the dredge was now at Wallace Shipyards for minor repairs. Juit
ai suuu as (lie overhauling proceu was
completed the dredge wuubl begin work
again un Parthia shoal, lhe remainder
of which would be remuved in sii
weeks. Hy that time Ibe uew city water mains would probably be in place
and Ihc dredge would proceed without
Interruption on lhc work actually willi
in First Narrows.
Speaking of Ibe poat office si|e Su
thie ,(ily, Mr. Stevens said lhat tbe
supplementary estimates were nuw' 10
cuurse of preparation and they- would
make provisiou for lhe paymenl of the
balauce of the purchase price fur tba
city hall prupcrly. It was nut likely,
huwever, Hial au a|prorialion would
be included this year for a poit office
building. Mr. Stevens expressed him
self as desirous uf securiug a poet office building uf a superiur chancier for
this city ami io order to accomplish
lins it might be found advisable lu occupy tbe liiiililing now on the property

To tb* g»n*ral W*» impreeeionlim,
either in painting or |iinitogra|iliy, ie
more or less fmldisin or tli* ereation of
a diseaeed' brain. It Is ''ertain tbat
tbe ordinary mind li not only ""'»■
liable Of appreciating p gouil impressionist |iictnr«, bnt' will pour all kinds
iif riiiiruio uiieii t|i* moit artistle effort. Tbia is really nnt as niuili ignorance as lark of training in arl 1st in matters, for tbe moit "ul ivated in otbor
iliruitiiiiis cannot iee any reason or
beauty in an impressionist picture
which they will deierihe as fgiiy or
not clear.
What tiie average person wants is a
straight elaar print taken on tbo most
bright and sunny day with every little
detail brought out. If ihey ran read
the lettering on a sign about a mil*
away with a tolerable amount nf clearness ihey will show tbeir print to all
and ni'i'ily ami will enlarge on the quality of their li'm. iuhMIii' excellence of
the camera. All of whieb may lie true
and i - iiv right, but there is another side to the picture.
Tlii-i.' is something to say for tho
impressionist, in fart a great deal. Qen-
i'l.ill.i he is the mere true artist ami
l.niii-.n '. lu'i he is after, even if he does
not always get It.
The   liil in'  between the improa,.
sionist and the uther fellow |a that one
sees an impression ami alms at getting
it, whilst the other sees every detail
ami wants all he can yio^uu his negative.
The two schools of thought have
ini'l many arguments on the subject,
cadi cluimiug tn be rigbl.
Tlie oue argues that on looking at a
Innil-i-ii|n' and focusing tbe eye upon it
iiiilv a certain very small portion can
be taken in, the rest being blurred to
the vision or impressionistic only. Hi
tries to secure a negative in Ibis man-
ni'f. Tu focus or briug iuto prouiin
ence one small portion of the picture
throwing the reniaiuder out of focus
uml thus securing an impression.
The other sebool will argue that
everything in nature is clear and iu
focus to the eye, though not to lie
taken iu all at ouca, it ia there, and
therefore the photograph sbould be
taken in the same manner, leaving the
eye In see esartly ill ihe finished phut
in- it iild nature Itself.
It is quits clear io everyone that the
iiiiiiiini eye is incapable of seeing oh
jecte at different planes ef distance.
That is, if the eye is looking at an oh
juet twenty yards away all in front ami
beyond is out of focus.
With the camera it is different, It
sees all al ouce ami by stopping down
everything can be brought into focus.
Holh these schools of photography are
riglit ami as a matter of fact both
sre wrong.
As there are two sides to every ques
lion, so there are to this. Tbere is uo
rule end none can be dogmatic.
All depenils upon the individual and
bis pariiruiar taste, bul from tbe ar
lisliu point of view tbe impressiouist
picture is the one tu be appreciated
must by lovers of arl.
It will generally be found that tbe
photographer who can Uke a good nn
|.n■■■:■lu'iii-in- picture ran easily take the
plain-straight picture. He bes .long
lioce toouc through the various phases
of progress in thc art and has only
arrived at the impressionistic stage by
sheer plodding and constant application.
lie knows lhe general public wili
nul appreciate his work, bul be alsu
knuws (ami is content with the know
ledge) thai he is far ahead in his work
anil this is his reward.
II is very amusing to walk through
un iiliilnlinn of photographs ami ,to
hear the remarks passed on the impressionist pictures. Puny types Huy are
often called and not iu a coinpiimcn
■im manner.
it will generally be noticed however
lhat tbey are well away the prize win
ners; and it must be understood that
the judges know Iheir business and do
not give prizn for nothing. .
Lei it not Iff thought tbat funy
types of any kind or Ibe nul of focus
picture will do. There ie eu arl in it
not eaay to follow by (be average
amateur. ,,/
lie must net think Iieeause bis pic
tura is fuzzy It is therefore artiitic.
tt may only be out of focua tnd bad.
A very old friend of tne writer's ami
a prominent ini'inbcr of I well known
club in his early photographic days
used to bring In print* for criticism. He
always bad tii own opinion of ble work
wbicb was a good one.
On* batch of prints he waa quit*
proud of tnd pointed witb glee to a
certain print saying "now tben that's
a good one, it's Inuy." fU got over
it in time and did good work.
in conclusion ena can ooly repeat the
edvjce frequently given. Keep on.
Slick to |t aod keep * record ef print*

The nn,,i.ii,i which It is the intention
