tains and deep, canyons, virgin snows
and primeval forests aro at its Very
doors. Qams still swarms in tho in-
Isnd country in such numbers ss will
furnish sportsmen for years to come.
In addition tp all this tbe municipality is gibed wilb vast supplies ol lumber, considerable possibilities ol min
oral wealth and a supply ul water anil
walor power which can not be ojual-
led by any other oity ol British Columbia.
North Vsncouvsr, conscious ol
those gilts o| nature, it not oontent to
let them lie idle. Development Is going apace and will advenes still faster in tbe future.
Beginning its lifo as a cily in 190?
witb 1,600 inhabitants, North Vancouver has grown in lour years to a
considerable settlement ol 1,600 people, tq whieb the municipal district
nan add another 1,600. But the
growth of population it at nothing
when compared with llie increase ol
assured valuo of city property, In
1901 tho official valuation was only
11,031,160, wbilo today lb. oily assess-
ment. gives figures ol mors than l'J.
0(10,000 and ths district contribute.
18,8811,000 more.
Such splendid security might have
ti-mpli.l tfae city to morlgags ils lu
lure too heavily, but so far Ibis danger ba. been avoided. Both city
and di.trict raise their money by a
general lax on land values determined yearly. No tax is levied on improvements, an exemption woll calculated to encourage tho development
ol tbo district gonorally.
North Vancouvor ran boast one of
tbe beat water supplies in tbe country. Brought direct from tbo Lynn
valley, tho supply is conducted to the
city by tbe simplest ol gravity sys
terns, tbo fall ol tbo ground obviating
any engineering difficulties. A new
main has lately la-en laid and all arrangement, are complete for supplying a city ol many lime. Ihe presold
Thc B. O. Telspbons Company baa
juat completed tho erection of a central exchange at Norlh Vancouver.
When aovetal years tgo ihs comp >ny

Nortfa Vsneouver by tolophont cablo
passing under tbe First Narrows, it
placed its eaohsnge in rented tiiuulcrt
is the centrs ol the community near

increased so did tbe paUoaags of the
telephone company end Ibil v.ur It
waa determined that quarters .initially filled to the retirement, ol the

benefit to tlie younger oily. Already
a e*r, shipbuilding and drydook company lit. made arrangemeUli for ee-
tablishing its works on the northern
Shore ae soon ss the Second Narrows tre spumed and the present
transportation disabilities are thus removed. But the bridge alone will not
complete the scheme thst the (ar-stu-
ing North Vancouvoritee have mapped
out for their oity. A tunnel under the
First Narrows tbey regard as ibe natural complement of the bridge. The
construction ol these two means of
inter-city communication will enable
them to realize their scheme of a circular harbor railway which, owned hy

For thii latter icheme other meant nl

but the men behind it are local men
lor the most part and money invested
in th. enterprise will bring them returns not only by the operation of tfae
scheme itself, but in the enhanced
value ol Uie land held by them oq
Ihe northern shore. For thit reaaon
it ia likely tbat the propossl will not
be hurriedly dropped. The tunnel once
constructed, Capilano will be nearer

Mr. J. P. Crawford ol J. P. Craw

real estata broken), Ium just returned
from a trip to Steamboat Mountain
and the town of Hope. Thing, are
hopeful in Hope, says Mr- Crawford,
notwithstianding the "Cnl»y" Has mis-
nHireeentntinna of some of the daily
newspapers. There is every indication
that this burg founded in 1851) will «»'■
perienoe a great boom nest summer.
Land haa already taken an aerial aa-
twnsion double coniere having reached
the prohibitive price ol 113,000 which
Mr. Crawford consider, tin inflated value. Motels ant full to overflowing
with pros|ieotors and prospective invasion uml a tremendous amount ol
building will take place tbia aiimmrJi
and the advent of the Canadian Northern Bailway into the'town will of
course work a natural benefit te al

The trail to Steamboat Mountain
starts at Hope and i. about 35 miles
long. There are three atopa on the
trail at 0, 14 and 33 niilee respectively or about a two day Irip for a pedestrian. On the 13th a pack Iran
attempted to go into the mines but
More the third atop on llie I mil was
reached doga had to lie retpiiaitioned
for the remainder ol the jouin.y on account ol llie .uow.   >
When aaked how the future of the
Steamboat mines looked Mr. Crawlord
suid that in spile of the wildcatting
and esaggeraled reports ol

four to twenty dollars tree gold to the

Editor Espress i
Dear Sir—There is a vory general
opinion abroad in our pity that the
Bosrd of Directors of the Ferry Co.
consists of a chairman who hus no
vote except in oase of a tie, one representative of tbe residents and ratepayers and three representatives ol
somelhing rpiita different.
Thin opinion may ba entirely erron-
i-oiiii ; on the other hum) recent oventa
hale given it at least sufficient eom-
blnitce of truth to justify investigation by those v.l ium- iuid cut n .re involved in the efficient and economical
iidniinisti'uiiun of ferry mailers.
In view ol the above lucts it is most
desirable that as many us possible ol
the residente ol North Vancouver
should alt. n.l Ihe meeting in the oity
hell nn Friday the 31st inst. at 8
p.m. «h. a llie directors have promised to answer a number ol tpiestious
which seriously' concern our intereala
and put-kola.
Among  other  things   they will   be
aakod tn explain why the builders ol
the new boat were paid aeverul ilnm-
i .-.anil   iluHm-n nunc (hull the   contract
I called lor ; why aome 84,1100 waa   al
| lowed for "extras" (by the way, is it
possible these "extra." wore only   intended to cover llie demurrage  which
llie directors after all, did mil see lit
to collect 7) why they fell culled upon
I to puy Ihe refreshment bills, with the
Haiepav.'is' money of course, when we
were ull invited BY THE BlTLDEItS,
to take u trip ou the new boat; why
there was no immediate investigation
anil no attempt to pluce the responsibility lur the sinking ol thu   whurl,
uud what they intend lo do ubont   it
Theae and other interesting tpies-
lioin. will, we are assured, be unsure
oil ut thu meeting and you will cuiler
a great Iwnelit on the Community by
giving the muvlcr all Ibe publicity in
your power und urging your readers
tu attend.
Ytiiirs truly,
W. I.. BOI LT,
