In describing the financial situation
of tbe ferry compsny ss "rank" s
word wbicb be did not wish to "so
but tbst he knew no other which so
sceurstey fitted it, Aid Dick stated at
tho meeting of tbe city council last
night thst it hsd beeu clearly shown
by the financial statement presented
by Mr Kemp that tbe ferry company
was losing about (22,000 annually
Tbis condition was brought about
by the faet tbat the ferry company
provided for no merest a: I uo sinning
limd fnr tho payment of interest on
tlio city's loans Aid. Dick advised
that tbe compsny should buy bsck nil
its debentures snd issue a fresh con-
> h,luted loan imiii iwo lo threo Ini'.-
did thousand dollars as might bo
Bepresenlstives of the ferry company Including Messrs. Wiliams, Lar
son and Capt. Kickham and Secretary
Kemp were iu attendance for the j.ri
mary purpose of urging upon the city
the necessity ol nn'.iu i provis.O'i lor
a now ferry. There was much discus
sion in which all agreed upon the
need of a furry though Mr. Williams
was not of so imperative a mood as
his fellow directors. The discussion,
in which the D>S»r joined as chat
man of Ibe directors of tho compsny
nnd iu which Hie councillors eventual
ly participated, brought out Ihe facts
of tbe Ferry Company's hopeless financial condition.
Directors Larson and Kickham were
insistent  upon the inline.I late nei'ijsit.,'
of takitig steps to start on the new ferry at once for even if tbat wero done
it would be doubtful if the ferry would
be ready much before 1013.
The mayor himself was inclined to
coincide with this opinion for he slat
ed that if No. 3 wore to break down
as she might do al Uny time since she
wss only now limping along on otto
boiler, the. would have but one com
pel cut ferry in use. If one ferry
were put nut of business the whol
cily would be effected. He thought
tbat no time should bo lost in pulling
forwsrd a bylaw lo provide for a
new boat. Sunday had ail but scllp
sed sll previous records snd su it
wss wilh every day. The Ira Die was
increasing by leaps and bounds and
next year must lje provided for. There
was, however, said the mayor, a rsso
Ilium, before the council from Ihe pen
pie asking thst no more bylaws le
put forward until confidence has been
ll hsd been suggested that the ferry
compsny should flout its own debentures backed by tbe city. This ha I.
however, been done. There was already a mortgage on the ferry. Tb!,
statement appeared to be news to
some of tho councillors and il was ig
onwi'ieuco 'hai Mr. Ketnj was us".
ed to read out Iho delsils of Ihe fu
.in. :.il petition of Ihe ferry.
Mr. Kemp's statement showed thai
(198,000 of forty yesr debentures hau
been ileal. I in llllli and thai to secure
them and the interest on them there
was a charge on all fuluro and promt
assets of the ferry company. Tu Hod
further debentures would only be It
raise a second mortgsge win, b would
present some difficulty. A siuking
fund snd interest arc provided for an
Dually for these debentures but there
is none for Ihe city's loans which
amount lo (1(7,110.
It wa, at thi, jun.lure lhat Aid.
Dick pointed oul tbat the whole financial system wss wrong.
Aid.   Henderson   thought   that     al
though il was right  thai  Ihe    Ferry
Compsny should come lo the council
wilb their troubles limy should   not
uk for a bylaw.   Wbst be would like
to see would be Ibst the council should
ssk Ibe ferry directors to prepo,"
concise and simple statement of llici
position,   Tbjs should be made public
\t. the whole of Ilie rtlepsycr, •>' t't

No Money for Waterworks
A letter among tbe correspondent'.;
from City Engineer Hancs indicated
tbat he bad received a statement from
the treasurer whicii showed that there
was only (8,5(111 to the credit of tbe
waterworks committee. Ho stated
further that the sum would be exhausted by tbe present day's .pay roii
and be asked whother ho should lay
off tbo waterworks force.

For these purposes the engineer recommended that a bylaw for (50,000 be
put forward to the council.
Aid. Dick, chairman of tho wstcr-
works committee, said that he kucw
that funds were short but he did not
know thai the proposition of a bylaw
was to be put forward. He said that
il was evident that they could not
complete their work without addition-
si 'funds.
Aid. Henderson recommended that
the usual procedure be adopted and
tbat the matter be referred lo tho
Board of Works, but the chairman
was opposed to this method, lie
thought that the matter should be
thrashed out there and then and ho re
queslod lhat action,be taken llmt
night to million.o tbo continuance Of
Ihe work or that the force be bid off
Aid. Smith moved thai Ihe mailer

Various accounts having bcou di.

Then came Mr. Romano's tor. lie

Ibo specifications called for. Tjto cu
gineer had said that he would hi.

of this fact.
The whole question turned on Ilu .1

dared quite as stoutly meant cither

For Ihe benefit of all concornel it

This definition completely upholds

of his remarks I beg to inform you
in ii., ii,ni I wus nul rouucsled with
the sending of Mr. Pearson's letter to
the Association. I simply seconded
the motion to sctni the letter to tlu
district council. Tl.nr Coun l.oitti'l's
answer to Ihe charges against the engineer were not aatisfsctory is borne
out by the fact that, sccordiiig to
Mr. Waghortie himself six voted for
the umeuiltiieiit and u larger number
ugainst it. Perhaps Mr Waghortie inters that the "sis" possessed all the
intelligence and the "larger number"
were fools unable to form a correst
judgment as to the facts. I am sur

'rom any probable immediate applies
tion to British Columbia, there are, no
vnrtliiiiiiss, excellent sousoiih to lie urg-'
sd why measures based on existing
conditions looking to tbe prpteetion
and the preservation of nur forest
should be adopted, A few at these
reasons may be cited. First, the pub
lie mind is becoming informed with
reference to matters of forestry and
readily approves its basic principles,
one of which is that all land should
be devoted to its most profitable use.
Another is even more potent namely,
that It Is imperative to the stability
and purity of the water supply of our
towns and ejties and other municipalities that they should own their own
watersheds' from which thsir water
supply is derived. And yet another is
found in the fact that "prevention ie
hotter than cure" ami it is easily possible for British Columbia, by the ad
option of scientific methods of forest
preservation and of reforsttratioti to
successfully protect itself for all time
against any material shrinkage in her
supply of Merchantable limber, while
the accomplishment of thie desirable
end will become increasingly d.flicult
in proportion as the ineeptioi' of

thnt immense advantage, of that un
challeiigable supremacy and of those
vast  ami  permanent  benefits    wbicb
would inevitably fall to our lot,   by
holding matters as they are fnr unolher
decade  or    two.   The   time  honored
maxim "Bide a wee" was never more
apt or forceful than when applied lo
Canada at the present juncture in II.is
The intensive methods in  the cu!
tivaliou of forests, to which the older
countries of the world have been driven, in  the effort  to safeguard  their
timber supply to some degree, constitute a perpetual  reminder   that    the
present   is the time for   Canada   tu
grapple  with  and   solve  this  stupen
lines!,  important problem.   The municipal forests of Germany present   th'
most helpful illustratio. of tl.'iMj intensive   method/.     In   that country
,'illages, towns, cities, states, corpora
tines   and   even   churches   own    and
manage forests on the most scientifi'
basis as a source of revenue.   Ho pro
filuble lias this method proven that s'
land that is not valuable for agricultural or other uses has been purchased
by private ur public bodies und plant
ed to trees.   Out of 1,564 communities
in the stste of Bsden, 1,5:141 have their
own forests which are under the supervision of the stale or imperial for
est service, an organization of Inuhh
trained  men whose duty  it  is to see
that the land is devoted to Ihe most
profitable species  of trees, that    the
mode of mtuagrmenl si adapted lot'lil
various species, that the timber is cut
only when it has passed its profitable
period of growth, and that every cutting  is immediately followed  by   natural  or   artificial   regeneration    of'
young trees of valuable species. Under j
the state officers arc locally employed j
guards who follow the plans drawn up!
by the superior officers, transact   the'
business, do the munua labor and pre
leet the forest from fire or oilier tie

boating and bathing were still at tbeir
height but the poor boy must give all
his attention to .those musty old spell

Why couldn't school wait till the

Ailed the out of doors. But now.
Why there wss lots of summer left

There was only one thing about it

Record in Pwengen
With tbs end a\ tSe'sesstin spnrpacb
Ing and with the dsy such an ona^
of beauty and brilliancy as only British Columbia can produce, it was no
wonder that the cars of the British
Columbia Electric Company once more
demolished their own record us far at
carrying passengers is concerned lit
North Vancouver. Prom a cloudless
sky the sun was coloring the mouii
tains and the foothills, and glisten
ing in it .thousand irridescetit flashes
from the tiny wavelets of tho jplot
When the lirst travel began. The heat
which promised to be intense was fortunately tempered by a cooling offshore breeze, so, with the elements at
their best and everything pointing t,i
a gorgeous day. It was ferry load
after Perry load which from the firm
boat tilled the waiting cars at the foot
of I,mis,Inle Avenue.
Hy the end of, the evening when tlte
i'ars finally stopped there was found
to he a grand total of over nine thousand five hundred passengers eSrrieit.
This iiiiuilmr is upwards of two hundred better than the previous best,
ami looks as though it wuuld prove
the record for the season
The fact that that same season it
rapidly drawing to a closo is doubtless
accountable for the number of visitors
who avail themselves of the glories uf
the'Indian Huininer weather. Many
who had journeyed hitherward before
seined the opportunity to cross again
and revisit tbe glories of the Capilano
the Ly it it or the Heymour Ami there
were many til-o to whom the North
Share of the Inlet was undiscovered
treritory and who had lieen loth to
forego the pleasures of whicii they
hud heard.
Of the three carlines leaving the
bottom of tlie Hill, it was the Capilano line yesterday which proved the
most popular. The memories of the
beauties of the Capilano Canyon is
in many men's minds, ami the charms
or its fir .l.-i.l glades, vistas of mighty
mountains ami the gurgling streams
which run through all, do not pall
after many visits. One may see the
same faces Sunday after Sunday up
the valley, with many new ones to
add to tbeir uumbcr.
