Of Immense Importance to North Vancouver-"
The Resources of the Northern Interior
k An Important anting took place at
fit* city hall on Wednesday night in
furtherance of the Burrard-Pcaco Biver
Bailway scheme—a scheme which most
assuredly demands North Vancouver's
closest attention. The meeting convened under tke auspice* of tbe Board
of Trade, but wai quite open to tb*
public, tbe proposed development* being of sucb immense importance to our
Tbe chair wss taken at sight o'clock
by tbe president of tbe Board of
Trade, Ur. Alexander Philip, and at
' y outset tbe following gentlemen
a%re enrolled a* new member*: Mayor
McNeish, Beove McNaught, Messrs.
Percy King, 0. F. Foreman, k. Dickinson, John I.. Johnson and John Shop-
The principal speaker of tbe evening
waa Prosldsut McOandless, of tb* Vancouver Board of Trade, wbo in comprehensive terms illustrated tbe great
advantage* tbat tbe opening of tbe
Peace Biver country would entail. A
line of railway, tbe ipeaker contended,
into tbat territory, would do mors
good for tbe province tban any other
tbat could be constructed in British
Columbia. It was well (known tbat
there wu timber in tbs Peace Biver
country tbat would justify a line of
railway if thero wa* nothing else in
sight. Tben there ws* a chain of
mountains and lovely lakes wbicb
would form delightful summer resort*
within easy reach of Vancouver and
North Vancouver, There would be
access to good fishing. He bad per-
tonally tccu a trout up there that
weighed over lix pound*. . Already
thero wmo many fino raucbe* established, bat through lack of transportation convenience* tbe only thing they
could rail* at present was'stock. There
were 40 million acros of good wheat
growing country waiting for develop-
m*nt. Thar* wu, Mid Mr. McCtu-
dless, no question of tho groat necessity of tbis railway. There wu no
question of its feasibility. There wu
no question of its paying after building. Mr. McOandless tben showsd
witb tbit aid of a map, tbe relative
distances from Fort Qeorgo of Vancouvor and Edmonton. There would be
tbe advantage in wheatgrowors in the
Peace Biver country hauling their
grain to Edmonton when they could
get it to tbe cosst direct to Vancouvtr. He urged immediate action in
tbe matter. Otherwise by tbo time
tbat the Panama Canal wu through
thty would not be in a condition to
do butinw* with that country.
Mr. McCandless tben( uked tbe
Nortb Vancouver Board of Trade to
endorse tbe petition for this railway
and to appoint delegate* to be sent to
Victoria so that more pressure might
be brought to bear upon tbo government. By thl* mean* they wore more
llk*ly to got what they wanted.
Tbe Grand Trunk railway would not
touch Vancouvar for ssvon year*. He
recommended them patting tbtir inoul
ders to tb* wheel and building tbat
line. It would run through finer country than other line*. It would not corn-
pat* witb any otbtr existing railroad
ant) it would benefit us greatly if we
bad on* hundred million bushels of
wheat coming tbi* way. Settler* war*
already locking Into1 tbe Peace Bivtr
country. Wbtn the C. P. B. wss built
iittlcrs followed tbe road. But in tbi*
cut thtrt would be thousands of set
tl*r* before tbey could get tbe road
Th* matting wu asked to consider
tbt following resolution; "Tbat where
U tb* Northern Interior of tbe pro-
vine* of British Columbia contain* im-
m*na* tract* of land well suited for
agricultural purpose*; wbereu tba import* of agricultural produce to tbe
province in 1910 amounted to ill,
OHMl, all of wbicb ahould bt raised
from our own soil; wbereu in tbt same
rtgion tber* bav* been discovered
■orat of tb* mo*t valuable coal deposit*

. tar** wbicb combined with th* gener-
ally favorable climatic condition* will
attract immigration, li* in tba feet
taft good watt* and timber are everywhere abundant aad tbat thate ua
many bundrtd* ol mil** of riv*r» and
. a vut extent of lake* wbicb ar* nevl-
gabl* and will afford cheap and ton-
v*ni*nt meant of trauportatioa to tbt
railway* of tbt futurt; wbereu railway communication between tb* Ptac*
Mr* «#»ntry and tb* tutern Canedl-
aa «ltls* will soon ba an *ccompll*bed
faet, tb*r*by landing tn usurp and 41-
vart to tbt eutorn y«yln«*i of tb*
Dominion    traffic    from    and    to
tl)* northern interior which rightly
belongs to the merchants and manufacturers of British Columbia unless a
lint of railway running from tbo uorth
tn the lower mainland bs provided;
therefore be it resolved that in tbt
opinion of this meeting, it has become
a matter of paramount importance te
the lqwer mainland and tbe coast cities
and in tbe beet Interests of tbe development ef tbo province tbat there
should be constructed a line of railway
from tbe cout northward* wbicb shall
link up th* variou* intermediate section* of the western interior and form
a direct connection witb tbe Peace
Biver district and tbe northern part of
tbe province; and be it further resolved tbat such step* be takon at once
u may be thougbt beat to bring tbe
matter meet forcibly to tba attention
of tbe provincial government urging
tbat It may take into ita consideration
wbat may be tbe best means to secure
tbe establishment of such a line of
railway witb tbe leut possible delay.
In tbe abience of Ex President Mai-
kin, wbo bad been appointed by tkt
government to take part in a tax commission at Victoria, Mr. Von Cramer,
ono of tbe vice-presidents of tb* Vancouver Board of Trad*, endorsed Mr.
McCandless's sulogis* of tb* Ptac*
Biver country and indicated that, if
this desired railway were built, North
Vsncouver would proportionately reap
greater result* tban any other city because tbe railway would bave to touch
Nortb Vancouver before going to Vancouver. Mr. Von Cramer pasted
around some excellent photographs illustrating the natural beautie* and resource* of tbe Peace Biver district.
Beovo McNaught said very decisively that tbe North Vancouver peoplo
should taks a' leading plac* in this
matter, tbat tbey ahould push aod work
for It. Tbey bad within tbeir reach
a valley containing tba finest agricultural tracts of land, and teeming witb
resourcer. He wu ia favor of
appointing a committee to help in
every way. The flrst in tbe field would
havo tbe best opportunity.
Magistrate Kealy said tbat if tbey
all pulled together he waa surs tbey
would get wbat tbey wanted. Tbey
must get bold of tbat trade if it wn
at all possible, and it wu not to be
thought for a moment tbat the .iti
itn* of Nortb Vancouver or tbe Board
of Trade would hesitate to give every
support to the enterprise.
Following a few remark* from.Mr.
.1. Wood, Mr. D. J. Dick, wbo had personally been over tbe proposed route,
three kears ago, pronounced it to be
a splendid one on wbicb to build a
railroad. Ht hoped tbat before long
tbey would be privileged to rid* an
Iron bone through tbe Peace Biver
Mr. Q. II. Morden championed Nortb
Vancouver'* alertness in seeing wbat
was coming, but reminded tbe meeting
tbat tbeir's wu a small community
and it wu not always possible to
swing things along for tbi* reason.
Tbs ons desire on tbo'part of Nortb
Vancouvsr would be to secure tbe con
struction of that road at ths earliest
possible moment and on tbe most ad
vantageou* baai* to all parties con
Coun. Bridgman moved tbe hearty
endorsement of tbe resolution out lin
ed above,'Mr. Dipfock seconding. Tbe
motion wu carried unanimously and
with acclamation.
Mr. McCandless, in' thanking tbe
meeting, aaid that be did not care wbo
started tba work, or wbo got the ere
dit for it; bt itnly wanted to tie tbe
work done.
President Hodgson, of tbe South
Vancouvsr Board of Trade, then spoke
of tbe public telephone, «y»tem. Hs
bitterly attacked tbe present toll iji
tern, stating himself In favor of gov
ernment-swntd t«l«pbon*s. Hi* views
were supported by Mr. Appleby, who
aired tbe inefficiency at tb* telephone
system in CollingwW He urged that
they bring these matters before tbe
provincial government and bave tbeir
telephone ssrvice mad* u efficient u
that of Manitoba, Saskatchewan aad
Tbe chairman aaid tbat it wu an
old theme in Nortb Vancouver and a
somewhat tor* en*. Ae soon u they
were able to gat a cab)* acrot* tk*
harbor tb* toilag* would, denbtleu, be
lowered to Kve cent*.
Mr. Kealy contended tbat it wai
not sufficient to bave a few municipal-
itiae    rtrrsualad      Their    ueilxioa
-' "■ ■       rap. |"WP^^_ riT^Tf       pw^WF
should com> from the whole province.
The chairman added tbat in Nortb
Vancouver one pf the industries pays
as much as (800 a year in tallage,
Thoy had oven moro to complain pf
than their friends in South Vancouver.
Coun. Bridgman moved that Magistrate Ksaly and Aid. Homlerspu be
appointed to act in conjunction witb
ptber committees to bring tbis movement before tbe union of mulcipa|ities.
Tbe meeting cordially agreed with this
Alt a )ate hour the scheme for tbe At
vulopuiont pf tbe North Arm of tbe
Fraser river fpr barber purposes came
up for discussion. President Hodgson
argued tbat Vancouver must be in a
position to look after tbe trade tbat
would iu tbe near future come ber
way through tbe opening of tbo Pan
ame Canal. He suggested that thoy
should get one of tne best harbor en
giueers to outline a scheme for tbo
consideration of the government at
Beev* McNaught associated hlnuelf
with tbese views, pointing put tbat tbe
port* of Seattle, San Franciico, Tu
come and Portland were spending millions on harbor improvements. Vancouver, witb a smallor expenditure
could give accommodation to larger
seagoing craft tban any of tbese
Aid. Henderson and Magistrate
Kealy alio spoke briefly ou tbo subject
wbicb was really too important a ono
to be iqueeted into tbe last few min
utes of tbe meeting. The departure of
President McCandless and others to
catch tbe 10.30 boat brought au on
tirely successful mooting to a close.
Nortb Vancouver, in common witb
tbe city of Vancouver, New Westminster apd other places in loutbern Hri-
tisb Columbia, where electric power is
supplied by the B.O.E.B. Company, wu
thrown into temporary confusion on
Tuesday night by tbe sudden failure
of one of tbe company'e dynamos at
tbe Lake Buntxon power station. Tbe
calamity occurred at shortly after 7
o'clock aad for over an hour and a
half North Vancouver wu in uubap
py darkness. Needless to say, for
tbi* period tbe *trcct ear service wu
paralysed, a condition of affairs which
naturally caused great inconvenionce.
Passengers on th* firriee bad tb* novelty of approaching an unlighted city
not to mention tbe innovation of finding no car to take tbem to tbeir
homes—in some cues situated along
street* and avenues bouting no lide-
walks. Candles and lamp* ware util
litd in business premises, but pn tbe
whole activities In Nortb Vancouver
were more or let* temporarily suspended. The explanation from headquar
tan ii tbat a llttl* after >ev*n o'clock
en* of tb* 10,000 horsepower dynamo! brok* down, cutting off on* third
of tbe lupply for power, light and rail
way purpoie*. Whin tb* employees
opened another dynamo of tb* *am'e
capacity to replace tbe brokon ono, tbe
•witch burnt out, leaving only four
3-000 bone-power machine* in working order.
Tbe company bad tbo damage to tbe
dynamo ripaired en Wednesday morn
ing and rsplacsd tbs burnt-out switch
for tbe **cond machine.
North Vtncouver wu a great deal
batter off tban In many other places

were visiting la Vancouvtr from New

reached by the suburban line, were

For some weeks put it lias been up
derstood in well informed circles tbat
the delay with reference to further
activo steps toward tbo conitrqctiun
pf Soeond Narrows Bridge was caus
ed by the fact that tin- city of Vancou

contracted to purchase capital shares
in tho Company to tbe amount of
$800,0011, On Thursday morning, howovor, this Isst obstacle was disposed

first payment upon tbo same. Tbo
subscription form wu duly executed
and although no nionoy was uctually
paid, the city stauds ready at any time
to burni over a cheque for a substantial amount in part payment.
Tbe district of Nortb Vaueouver is
tbo only municipality which has actually paid any money as yet, to tho

Miscellaneous   Impressions   |n   a
Long Journsy.
,(By "TAN HJLJr.")
I don't liulievo in sea posts. I have
a sneaking tipnyictioi) tbat tba majority
nf sea songs are written several limi-
ilm.l miles inland. To begin with, 1
mu quit; i-iiiiviiii-,-,1 that nine out of
ten poets would Uo as sick as dogs iu
lin- klml of weather that they particularly like to write about. 1 tried very
hard while on shipboard to visualise
a long haired huni, stauiling inspired
in the breeze, jotting down linos of the
"O mighty sea" order, but I cuulilu'i
fit him into the picture auyhow. In
all probability tho dock hands would
commence swabbing during his rhapsodies, ami before he could And a
rhyme for "bulwarks" his hat would
blow off into tbo third class section,
ami he would look too foolish to ever
become immortal.
Thoro is, however, another side to
the question. No one, save the unmitigated hairbraiii, could possibly fail to
be inspired by such immensity, such
grandeur, such indefatigable awfuluess
as that of tbe great Atlantic. There
wero steerage passengers aboard who
had never in their lives seen a bigger
,-i. ■ uunl In i iuu of water than that of a
city reservoir. Was it to be greatly
wondered at that they drew closer to
one another at the boatsidot As one
stood in the quietudo of the evening,
smoking a last pipo before turning in,
the question inevitably presented itself
when one's gn/u rested ou the now
deserted steerage pruinonade: "What
manner of new life is it that each of
tbese people go tut What manner of
luck is going to bu thcirsf" In the
afteruouu, an unhappy looking Jew,
with just that typical appearance which
is given to a Jew in the comic journals,
bad wandered up ami down tbe deck,
fingering his beard like Shylock himself, muttering under his brcatb and
looking ill and wretched. Why was he
bound for Canada! There arc characters on every voyngo that remain
mysteries to the end—perhaps even to
themselves. Aud there are characters
that ono can read ami understand at a
single glance. Unmistakeable, for instance, was the purpose of one youug
emigrant, broad about the shoulders,
with Siimiii eyes thst stared unwink-
ingly over the waters, Solidly be
stood, with his arms folded, determination written in every line of his figure.
He was going to test fol himself the
possibilities of the great lifo of the
West. Near to him stood an old man
from Yorkshire, his clothes smelling of
the moors, his tobacco smelling even
stronger. "Hy gum!" he muttered at
intervals,, and joined iu Ihe laughter
ef those around him. "Ah'm off oot
ter join Jack and 'Arry," he woold
explain, if questioned as to his plans.
"Me old woman died a twelvemonth
buck, and Ah'm sick ,, femlin' for
mnien.' 'Sides, Jack an' 'Arry ain't
done had oul in (lauady, an' tbey
reckon they can liud me Wine odd jobs
about t'ranch. Where is t 'ranch 1 Nay.
1 can't pronounce t' name o't' spot
yet awhile. Ah'in just laruin' it,
like." And so on. Then there were
one or two girls going out to get married. Certain of them knew it; others hoped so. And how many, if you
please, of those excited, souls gave
thought lo Ihe captain, who (out of
sight, out of mind) wus responsible

.   SUNDAY, QWffiEB J,  '
The Wth century, B. 0., was a period
of awful gloom. Heathenism wu
frlutnp||gnWerusalera in r»ln»—It)
pimple ill exile. But in the darkness
it pleuMiid Ood tu keep three beacons
burning-- .lurcniiab In Jerusalem, Daniel
in Babylon, and Eieklel In Cbaldca.
They preserved » rouiuaut aud paved a
way for tbe Messiah. . . Etekiel was
never persecuted Hire Jeremiah. He
was with the first exiles—tbo best company. Tbey wore patriots, and listened
to the prophet as tbe messenger pf
Ood. . Like Isaiah, Eiekial was inducted to office by a vision of God.
Hut what ho aaw so surpssscd power
of human language tbat nothing is
conveyed but the glimmering ideal pf
an ineffable presence Such was tbe
installation of a prophot, essentially one
of action . He was pot » weeping composer of elegies, but a man pf determined energy- -who, al hia nam* lig-
nilies, was Gud's provider for his
poople's needs. . . Now follows a
series of symbolical actions like those
of Jeremiah. He drew wltb stylus on
a clay tablet a picture pf tbe impending
sicgo of Jerusalem. He cut off bis hair
iu sign tbat tho holy city was to be
shorn of its glory. He gave a picture
pf what bo eaw when "spirit-led"—
tbe ii'iuple walls coversd with idol
images and tbe worship of A.i.iniB in
progress at the very altar of God. No
wonder tbat be next sees live coals
scattered over the devoted city by the
hands of cherubim. The forceful book
closes-with a' description of the City of
God so glorious as to make tbe writing
tho Apocalypse of tbo Old Testament.
. . . Tbe Jews put Exekiel along
with the first part of Genesis
and tho Canticles—calling thorn "the
Treasures "—and directing tbat thoy
sli mil il not be read bofore one's
thirtieth year. Tbis is manifestly a
mistake Eiekiel in bis liveliness and
picturciuueuois especially appeals to
youth. As a piece of literature, bo
makes for the best.form of expression.
But more tban tbat, be is a quickouor
of patriotism. His spiritual meanings
also arc clear and appicablo to our day.
lie puts a supreme omphasi* on the
spirituality of worship and tbo doctrine
ef a new heart. Ills wholo book
reaches its glorious and golden climax
when bo cries, as if be was God's own
voice, "Then will I spriuklo elcau water on ypul"
Kapbaol, with tho daring of his
genius, attempts to picture the ineffable
scene—Exekiel'« vision ef God. Tbat
diminutive painting in tbe Pitti Palace
was, from its very subject, predestined
to failure, although it is a majestic
hand-breadth of canvas. . . Exekiel's
style is marked by sublimity—pathos,
beauty and melody. Ho has been
likened tewEtchylus, Dante aod Milton.
His description of tho sack of Tyro
undor tbe figure of the wreck of a
merchantman witb goodly cargo is unsurpassed. Tho lumen! ul inns of Israel's
princes in tbe parable of tbe Lion's
Whelps makes an elegy of melting tenderness. , . Exekiel is a treasury of
ethnology, objects, manners, custorac of
extinct nations are here preserved as in
a cabinet. . . Tbe sensitive-plate of
the prophet's genius caught those
weird bas-reliefs of composite and
symbolic animals, and tbe gigantic
character and proportions of Babylonian
architecture. . . The prophet's prim
ary meaning is one, of course, for the
Hebrew peoplo. They are shown bow
tbe chastening of the exile is to rid
them of idolatry and produce tbe fruit*
of righteousness. . . But there is a
larger messing—depth below depth in
tb* prophet. Hi* li * message to the
human raca u well as te the Hebrew
race.   It* term* are far too large fori
the Jew) to exhaust.   Exekiel's js a

Petpr was dean pf tho apostles in

He neutralized his glorious "con-
fession" by deprecating Jesus'' way of
Saving men. Ho walked on tho water,

do so. H* defended Jesus with a sword,
but denied Him with an oath. Yet tbp

North Vancouvtr, B. 0,.
B.pt*mb*r 88,  1011,
During the past few days developments have taken place which have
Bgain revived interest ill two issues of
the utmost moment to tbe port of
Vancouver and iu which Nortb Vuncouver is vitally interestsd, namely
tbe project of tho early const ruction
of a Hue of railway from Burrard Inlet
to Fort George, tbe gateway to tlie
great Peace River country and the
proposition that some" feasible means
be found for tbe nationalization of
Hurrard Inlet as a harbor.
Tin- Ant mentioned undertaking is
one with which residents of North
Vancouver bave long been familiar
ami of whose great importance frqm
the standpoint of the Port of Vaueouver in general and of Nortli Vancouver iu particular, all welUiuformei
citueus aro anil bave I ecu for yean
past, fully convinced. The great
aroa of the country to he reached, tbe
varied nature of tbe vast resources with
wbicb thai countrv is endowed ami the
incalculable possibilities . of tbat section of tlie province for tbe 'Tuition
of in alii, and tlie iicvclopment of Ii.i
Ibe all conjoin* to demonstrate beyond
cavil Ibe imperative necessity of establishing Ihe very be*t pouibl.'transportation facilities, between that com
try nn.I Hurrard Inlet. Those citir.ous
of Nortb Vancouver who lake au active interest iu matters of public nm
in.ni have persistently endcavorud at
every - opportunity fur years pant to
impress upon the mind of the (labile
ou both sides of the inlet, * due realisation of tlie supreme importance of
tbis projected Hue of railway, but
presumably because the Nortb Shore
happened to lie tbe *m*ller commuuity
Hie agitation did uot meet witb any
material encouragement with tb* re
•ult iimt Ibe proposition lias been beld
in abeyance while precious time ba*
been lost md tbere i* ground for the
fear that a rare opportunity ba* been
siirrilin'il which si best can but be
partly regained.
The .Tiiislrucliuii of the Grand Trunk
Pacific railway Introduced a new factor min tbe situation by ushering into Hie aroua a strong and alert rival
lo Vancouver for possession of the
trado from tbi* extremely valuable
section of Uritiab (,'olumbis, namely,
I in,.a,i,in. Alberta. The eitent to
..lm li Hist city, by energetic motbods,
ban succeeded In making it**lf tbs
lm-.- of supply for tbis country I* it
ba* opened up, bu finally aroused in
ilu. niinl circle* in tbe city of Vancouver to a realisation of the fact that
if this iiniii.Tiscly valuable appanage
is not to be permanently lost, iu large
measure lo ibe Vielte roast city,
prompt tnd energetic measure* must
b« lakru to connect Vancouvar by
means of a line of railway witb Fort
George, which is tha immediate centre
jot thai country. The movement wbicb
lm" developed is being energetically
prosecuted *ud steadily gains strength
and influence. Needle** to say, tbat
Ibe entire Nortb Shore will be ready
at all lime* lo lend every possible aa
sislaii.-c to Ibis project, for it is cou-
"•il.'.l without qtwilion tbat any line
of railway which may bt built for tbe
purpose would flrst reach Burrard Inlet
at Nortb Vancouver. w
The terend project, namely tbe for
initiation of a comprehensive harbor
scheme ler the port of Vancouver ba*
bus revived in thl* Instance from a
sourct which give* encouragement to
believe tint fcagJW* remit* will ultimately follow, ninety th* Harbor Improvement* Commitlit of th* Board of
Aldtrmw el tin eity tl Vawow**.

which tbey bave consistently striven
to keep alive, notwithstanding repeated discouragements, maintaining under
all circumstances the Arm conviction,
tbat a matter such as this, of supreme
moment to not only the Port of Vancouver but of very great moment tn
tba entire Dominion inasmuch as Van-
coin-,ir is and over will be Canada's
great PaciAc port, could not rest until
some adequate solution of the problem
bad been  found
There is one fundamental conclusion
witb reference to a harbor scheme
which may be said to have become
Axed in the minds of those who have
been most intimately associated with
thia movement, namely that any
scheme which is destined to survive
must avoid  tbe  error of attempting
tOO   nun II
Tbere are two important particulars
iu which tbis principle applies. Tbe
flrst is that however extended the
bounds of such a scheme may ultimately become, it should be clearly recognized that initial operations shall
be cinflnc.l In Burrard Inlet in the development of tbe auperb advantages
with which tbe Inlet has beeu endowed
by nature, ami tbat expenditures up
ou the creation of additional harbor
by artificial means should not be un
lertaken until the utmost lm been
made of Burrard Inlet.
The Inlet is gsueraily conceded to
be one of tbe greatest natural harbors
in the world and inasmuch a* it is of
very large proportions, it affords ample accommodation upon au economical
liii'H-i of harbor improvement for the
requirementa of tbe port for *ome time
to come, for wbicb reason any large
expenditure* for the creation of au ar
iiti.-inl harbor elsewhere would bo uu
called for.
Tbe secoud consideration is tbat
any feasible scheme for the,improve
ment of Hurrard Inlet as a harbor must
make provision for the incorporation
of private enterprise in its general
plan. The expropriation of any large
tracts of wtlerfroiitagc upon
snulh shore is impossible and although
the north shore present* much better
opportunities in tbis respect, the ml
visability of any wholesale expropriation of waterfrontage is not favored
for two reasons. First, because the
price of sucb property bu attained
■uch a high Agure that any extensive
expropriation would Involve tbe ex
pendltura of huge sums, tbe effect of
which would bs to nereasitate high
charge* wbicb would prove detriment
«l to the popularity of tbe port and
lecondly, becau** tbere are many pri
vate owners wbo would be prejiarcd
to develop their waterfrontage upon
a *cal* of considerable magnitude and
io strict conformity witb any provi
•ion* which might be enacted for the
control of lucb cue*. Tbe scheme,
therefore, which bu of late found fa
vor' oo tbe North Shore is one tbat
would combine national or municipal
development witb the operation* of
private anterpriie.
The quest iou i* a broad one and one
which Will develop difficulties when an
effort i* made to reduce theorist to
practice, but it is one which i* by
no mean* impossible of solution and
it ia lo be hoped tbat thi* latest move
Bitot will not (Mat until thi* exceed

An Original short story by
Price Holland
Having observed on several small
lamps and also on tho back of a station seat, the name of Falcon Hill,
painted in blue letters witb a considerable ainouut of obviousness, 1 alighted
briskly frum the train pad strode down
the platform with a fecliug' of great
importance. I waa aware tbat I hid
only to meutiou to tht grey-bearded
station master tbat I was actually n
invited guest of the Honourable Arthur Montague Falcon, and be would
become instantly obsequious. I was
also aware that, even if 1 did not per-
aonally apprise him of tbis fact, tbe
porter with the bottle coloured sloevea
wbo was vigorously mastering my luggage wuuld do so sooner or later, for I
lia'l addressed ail the labels iu a scrupulously large baud and had written
lu each instance "care of tbe Honour-
ibis A. M. Falcon" in order to conclusively differentiate myself from auy
new chef or footman who might be
expected to arrive by the same train.
Such pre.eulioii* were not taken, 1 assure you, because of anything4incuial
in my appearance, but ralher oo account of Ibe fasbiou now prevalent
among servants of cither sex lo elotbi

lo create blunders of identity of a peculiarly disconcerting nature.
It WM a perfect day iu August, and
the stition muter, after the departure
of the train, shaded bis eyes irom lbs
sun wilb a brown horny band.
"Filcou Court, sirf" hs inquired
wltb I canary like motion of tbe bold.
It WM pleasing to reflect that, after
all, the labels ware a superfluity. I
replied affably tbat I wm bound thither and tbe station muter pointed in
immepse, thumb over bis giudy epaul
etted shoulder.
"There's Lord Falcon's carriage

"and tbe footman wu here I minutt

A youth in livery, however, emerged
at this moment from lbs wilting room
tnd ditcerniag the thumb of the stition mister, put two md two together

WM P quiet unassuming follow, whoso
acquaintance I bid made it a London
Club And whose reputation wis solely
thit of being tht eldest >on of Lord
Falcon. He hid never boasted, as you
and I would probably have done, of
tha vast possessions he was heir to,
nor hid he evor mentioned his titled
father more than was clearly necessary to conversation; and yet, as 1

general magnificence of Falcon Court,
greeted me it lunch-time, mil presented me in a moat natural manner to
