to the city's interests and woui.l receive remuneration commensurate with
tboir services and consequently Iho
efficiency of tbeir services woui.l bo
bucil upon the reteutiou of a very do-
airahle position at a good salary, instead of upon a mere retontlon of civic
"Illinois" which aro frequently more
imaginary than real.
Under civic government by Board of
Aldermen, a eity gets from eititent
witb whom attention to civic affairs is
a secondary occupation, without paying
for their services, the utmost amount
of time and attention that tbey can afford to givo tbe city, while under government by eonimisiiou, the eity gets
tbe undivided time and attention of
men who soon become experts in their
line and pays tbcrefor an adequate
price Tbo question which remains is
this. At what stagt of affaire dots tbo
time arrive wben, the interests involved are sufbcietly extensive to make it
bettor business upon tho p.-ut of tbo
city lo git undivided services from
professional civic officials ami pay for
tbem, rather than to get divided services from amateurs (with all due respect to our worthy aldermenj for nothing. ,
Tbe lliwrd of Aldermen in any pro
greaiive city could not bo chargeable
witb mistaken policy, who decided to
givo tbt ratepayers au opportunity lo
pronounce upon this Important matter,
at a comparatively oarly dale in the
city't bittory.
' < The Intentions of tha provincial government witb reference to tbt provincial university, u outlined by Dr.
Young, Minister of Education, In his
notable utterances at the convention pf
School Trustees lut week, ibow conclusively tbat the government has
rightly gauged the pre-eminent position
Ibat education it destined to occupy
in the future progress of tbe nationa
and is likewise determine;! that the
youth of British Columbia shall be accorded facilitiet which properly appro-,
dated ami utilised, will place them
upon vantage ground equal to the best
that tho world affords and second to
none in this superlatively important
The splondid seliemo unfolded by the
Miuister of Education should raise tbe
enthusiasm of educationists to the highest point aud cannot but be received
With universal acclaim by tbe entire
The location Beleeted for tbe building is superb, the grounds are ideal
and ample, The magniflcunt endowment of one million aires of public
lands which has been sat aside by the
government for tbe purpose is out of
tbe most notable1 instances on record of
the utilisation of a portion of tbe public domain for tbe promotion of tbe
interests of tbe people aa such, and afford! positive ossuraiice that as time
goes on, tbe University of British Col
umbiu will rank u one of tbe wealth

Tbe character of tbe building! u
described by Dr. Young, is te be in
keeping witb tbe high degree of ex-
, elleni e indicated by tbe wbolo scheme
Tbe foremost architects of ths world
will be given opportunity to capture
the distinction of designing these
liiiildiugs, so that when rompleted Ihey
will represent tbe highest product of
ihe modem architectural genius, while
their internal arrangement and ap-
pumlnieul* will embody the lut word
lu dale from tbo foremost cxponenti
of the i-i ieiiiilic construction of public
The faculty of the university will be
composed of educationists ami profes-
sort, representative of tbo moat run
nent expouenti of modern thought and
im I Inula, and no expense will be spared
in this department inumucb u it necessarily constitutes the very heart of the
whole iiiililulioii. Correspondingly the
equipment of tbe institution for scion-
i ibe instruction u well u for original
nveitlgltlpn in the several depart
uiintt, will be strictly modern ami tbor
i.uglily efficient in every dotail.
Hy on means the leait important of
Ibe notable ullcruii.es of the Minister
of Education wu that to tbe offset
Ibal Ihil university ia designed to be
a popular cducitioml institution in
tbe broad sense of thl term. It cannot
but afford the tutnioit satisfaction to
all classes of citizeus to bae>/tbat

to youth who long for a higher education, are to be abolished ami tbat it

lime the child begins at tbo public kin-
dorgailen, education shall be free until

Directors Baply to Delagatlou
Th» firry dlwtftrs mt ia t(isir comfortably warm hpuA mm »» Friday
■afternoon, Mayor McNiiish presiding.
The premier feature pf tbe session was
I Btateroout iiiasli) in reply fp Iho ro-
commendations brought before tliu ili-
rectors at theit pwiont taaeilag fy a
joint delegation of tho local Board of
Trado |i|d Batopayan' Association
Tlie chief recommendation, it will bs
remombereil, was ont com-nrning tlie
advisability of having u. Inmporary
bridgt traded on tha Vancouver side
to dispense with the preient dangerous
necoiiity of having to croaa tha rail
way tracks ou leaving the ferry. Jt
wat pointed ont that tbt subway, which,
mah boon planned to rtmedy this will in
all probability, not be completed within twelve monthi.
On Friday, therefore, three of the deputation, Messrs. II. O. Wright, I..
Watts Douey and W. I,, lloull, reappeared for tbeir promised answer.
Mr. Jesse Williams, speaking for the
ilirecfrs, said that Ihe mayor, Manager
lletrd, Captain Nicholson, the general
manager of tbe Grand Trunk Pacific
railway, and himself, bad called upon
tba O. P. H. superintendent, Mr. ljus
tied, d'aptain Nicholson accompanied
tbem becauie of tha proposition which
was being considered of erecting an
overhead bridge through the G. T. P.
depot. This would be a much larger
affair and would suit their purpose better than a temporary bridge. Tbe captain was present in order to ascertain
if the grant of tbo 0. P. B. would .per
mit of their using a portion of that
company'! land. Ths propoaition bard
ly learned to mit Mr. Buiteed, who,
however, promiiid Ibem an answer in
twenty-four hours.
It was plainly Mr. Williams.' persoual
opinion thst something ought to be
done to free the directors from respou
sibility iu the ovent of accident* iu the
near future.
The mayor pointed out that even for
the erection of a temporary bridgo thoy
would have to get tbe pcroiision of the
railway commissioners.
Mr. Williams agreed .saying that
they would bave to go through a heap
of red tape before they could bo com-
mutated. ,
The secretary, Mr. Kemp, was then
called upon to read Mr. Buiteed'i reply, which bad duly come to hand. It
read aa follow.-.: "Beforring to our
conversation this morning witb regard
to allowing a private roadway thirty
feet wide to the north aide of the iou-
thern boundary of tbe property leased
by tbe North Vancouver Ferry company
I would lay that 1 will agree to thii
proposition on the understanding tbat
the Grand Trunk Pacific Bailway Co.
will undertake not to crpis our tracks
between tho Nortb Vancouver Ferry
Company's crossing and Gore Avenue
aa long as this road is used; tho uso of
the roadway to terminate, of course,
upon the termination of the lease of tha
ferry company. With reference to tbe
overhead bridge, I understand that if wo
consent to the road being built as above
yw ww...

would bp enriched by night* in the apr-

light fpr the ecpnt oxygen of the upper
air, would develop strength uml throw
off Ibeir afflictions. Tuberculosis, pneumonia ainl nil tbo dlsaescs pf impoverished blood would ho pheekeil tpd perhaps cured.
Tlie skyscrapers, iu offect, ire at
the prosont time giving business men
ami womcu something of the advantages
of an aerial sanatorium or a trip to
the mountains.
The preaont investigations on Pike's
Poak bavo furnished a moro satisfuc-
tpry explanation than was formerly extant as to the reason why tbe blood is
improved by residence in mountainous
places ami why tubercular patients so
frequently improve in health. The
chango is duo to tho lii.-i that tho lungs
aro forced to work. The lungs, so it
is now contended, have tho power to se
crote oxygen. Tbey withdraw the oxygen from the uir and add it to the
idiin.l. But this is done only when the
lungs are forced to act. At sea level
the amount of oxygen in tbe air is
larger and tbo air pressure heavier. As
a result the lungs do not bave to secrete. The oxygen is forced almost
mechanically into the blood. The lungs
through lock of exercise, become weak,
just us the muscles would.
Taken lo a high altitude, tbo patient is likely li suffer from mountain sickness. This is because the
lungs have lost Iheir facility in oxygen speftsion ami I lie patient is suffering from partial oxygen starvation.
An in.-Htm relief can be secured by tbo
use of nn oxygen tank. After tbe patient has been, in the mountains for a
few days or weeks his lungs rapidly >le
vclop Ibeir power to secrete tlie ony
geu ami tbo blood is soon supplied with
Its iiormul amount. As time goes on
Ibe lungs become more ami moro vigorous ami the amount of oxygen prcBS-
od into the blood by tbem is larger tli n
ever bofore. Tbe patient is soon run

Tho newest point wo havo determined is in regard to ilu accretion of oxygen in the blood by the lungs. l-!x-
i liui.'iii:' along this Hue aro proving
tp entirely new theory. Dr. . Haldniie
tyas one of tho first to believe that the
lungs dill secrete oxygen in the blood
at high altitudes, when at sea level tho
oxygen, it is generally believed and
pretty well established, is merely dilf
used through tho lungs. The lungs develop with exercise, just us do the muscles, ami the reason pneumonin is so
fatal al high altitudes is that through
exercise the epithelium of the cells of
tbe lungs is thickened ami toughened
aud the oxygen does not diffuse rapidly
The lips of newcomers to high altitudes aro generally blue, sliowiug that
thoir I'l,,...I is uot circulating properly
—a condition duo to docrouscil pressure.
After a while'tbey wulk about a bit
and soon their lips lake on a pinkish
color. Exercise stimulates Ihe lungs to
secrete oxygen ami that causes healthy
color ami better circulation. The hush-
is run by combustion like an engine.
If there isn't enough oxygen the heart
lags ami Ihe human machine' runs like
a rusty engine.
When exercising freely iu high ulli
tudes the lungs givo off u lol of combustion products and these are being
investigated by those in charge of the
mountain resorts. These combustion
products are what cause hcudachcs,aiiil
mountain sickness..
Tbese investigations show that Ilie
theory that high altitudes are beneficial to tubercular patients, is based
on fact, not fancy. Doctors have con

The mayor admitted that it had
struck him.   '
Aid. Smith argoed that there wae
sufficient traffic on that crossing already. He then Inquired ai to -whether
tba ferry directors were agreeable to
hand over tbii im foot roadway to the,
Grand Trunk Partite.
Tbe mayor replying, reminded the
oouneil that tbe directors had been
visitoil by a delegation eoinpriiiiig
membori pf the Hoard of Trade and
the Uatopayori' Association,
Aid. Dicki "In connection with an
overhead bridge!"
The mayori "Kiactly,"
Aid. Smith: "Don't you think
that it ought to come up before the
council. It looks ap if tke 0. 1'. II.
and the 0. T. P. were trying to crowd
ui off that landing tbp stme as tbey
crowded ui off tbe last!"
Tbe mayor urged Aid, Smith to at
tend tbe next session of tbe ferry directors and bring Ihe matter up thero.
Aid. Henderson considered that bofore anything binding waa done by the
director!, tbe plans should lie laid be
fore tbe council and that out of courtesy, tbey should alio go before the
Board of Trade which bail takep such
an Intereat In tbe matter. .
The mayor again mentioned the dele
gat ion which wai rorpesenlative of
both tbe Board of Trade and the Rate
payors Association. Aid. Smith, as
president of the former body, said em
pbatically that he waa uot aware of
any members being delegated for such
a purpose.
Tbe mayor looked mystified. He
etplained bis worried expression. "One
body," he Mid plaintively, "wants ut
lo got t crossing immediately, aa lives
are in danger; toother wants ui to
take time."
Aid, lleinleisiiii defined the crui of
the problem ai being tbe alienation
of a .'in i'uul itrip from tbe ferry lease
hold property to the draml Trunk Pacific. That bad been debated by
both tbe city council and the Board
of Trade. He reputed ,hii former remark as to the proper inspection of

Aid. Smith (staccato): "I bave tbe
plans at my office."
The mayor uid tbat to bit knowledge
only one plan relative to the matter
was in existence.
Aid. Smith almost winked. " I make
It my business, your worship, to keep
in touch witb things," be etplained.
The mayor was nonplussed. He
promised to put tha metter before tbe
ferry board. He hoped Aid. Smith
would attend.
"I certainly will," uid Alderman
Ou a motion by Aid. Henderson, it
was resolved that tbe city council
would like to eee the plant and tbat
tbe Board of Trade ba alao ibown
them, provided that the, coune would
aot entail delay.
It wai then decided tbat a water
main be laid along St. Oeorge'i Ave.
to an eitent of IHO feet. -
Tbe city eugiueer reported tbat be
had examined the eut line of Bewicke
Ave. to see whether or not the Nortb
Vincouver Lumber Co. were encroaching on the alreet pnd. He found tbat
tbia line wu run aome time ago by Mr.
Weal and recently by Mr, Malliieion,
employed by the Nortb Vancouvtr
Lumber Co. and that tht two linee
corresponded. He wu of tbe opinion
tbtt the two piles wbicb bid been
driven were wilbin one or two feet of
the correct line.
