H. H. Stevens, M.P., Reviews Matters
of Public Moment Pertaining to
the North Shore
Mr. H. H. Stevens, M.I'., wbo returned front Ottawa on Tuesduy, freely discussed witb a representative of tbe Express, tliosc matters of interest to the
Nortli Sboro which are now before the
With reference to lhe route map of
the 0. V. II., Mr. Slovens declared that
there was no doubt that thai com
puny would be found opcraling on lhe
Nortli Bhoro iii due course, ile thought,
however ,ilun the public had a wrong
idea ns lo the actuating motives which
led lo the application of iImt company
for the approval of their route map. The
idea appearoil lo huve gone ubroud thut
tbe II. 1'. It. Inul some definite scheme
lo develop in entering lbe Held on lbe
North Sboro, whereas in point uf fuel,
Iiiiiii the statements which bail' been
made tu himself by Sir Thomas Shuu-
gliiiessy Mr. Stevens was convinced
Ihut the railway company was proceeding merely upon general developments.
The (!. P. II, saw Ihul mutters were
reaching u focus ns to railway develop-
, incuts ou (his side of the inlet and
they had decided that it would be lo
tin"interests of tbeir company in a gen
erul way to get in Hie Held lirst ami
hud moved accordingly
lie had several interviews with' Sir
Thomas Sbuiiglinessy wilh respect    to
(.tbe mailer. Sir Thomas had assured
'flMk Ihut it wus nol the inleutioii of
hi?company to rush matters with refer
dice to this side of the inlet. He wus
not in possession of details himself, bul
had lirst agreed to write Mr. Bury for
I min iiliu." and latterly hod referred the
wliule matter to Mr Marpole. In bis
several conversatious with Mr. Shun
ghucssy Mr. Stevens had outlined liis
position very clearly aud Sir Thomas
hud assured thc member that be was
quite correct in taking tbe -1111.1 lliul
he did as the guardian of the interesl!
of the public. Thc C. P. H., of course,
desired lo get their roule map approved
ou the most favorable terms lo them
selves, but uow that thc several points
advocated by Mr. Slovens bad been definitely made they would have to admit that he was quite within Ins pro
voice Iu bringing them forward and
Ihul they were quite reasonable from
Ilie public slamlpoiiit.
Mr. Stevens bod called the attention
uf Sir Thomus Shuughncssy to the fail
lliut all bough the roule ma/ of any
ulher railway company might be al
lowed lo procure approval without
close scrutiny inasmuch os opportunity
to rectify ony mailers that were uot
acceptable in the public interests
would occur when lhe location pluit wus
submitted to Ibe Hoard of Bailway
i'iiiiiiiiI'-iisiii i-i. wilh respect to the
C P. H, however, this was uoi the cose
inasmuch as their charier conferred up
on Ihem special privileges. Because
of lhi> it was essential that nil tlm."
stipulations whiili were required frum
Iho viewpoint Of public interests should
bu procured before tbe roule mop was
approved. Tbe president of the l.'.P.R.
bud acknowledged lbe correctness of
this position.
Sir Thomas Shaugbucasy bad sug
gesled tlint tho business of other railway Hues could be arranged by the <,'.
P. H. griiniiiig running rights over tbeir
lines. Mr. Stevens bad pointed out
that this would not meet the caae for
the reason that if thc C. 1'. H. owned
the lines then Ihey would naturally
take care uf' tbeir owu business hrst.
That as a  matter .of  business  tbey
\would handle Ibeir own c^irs at thoir
,wn ' hum nu'  in the find instanco
And Ibat the business of olber lines
wuuld bo compelled lo wait until il
that presented itself iu formulating any
scheme of harbor development, nroso
from the fuct that so vory little water-
frontage uu the south shore wus in prl'
vute lum i Referring to 11 map of
Vancouver ho slowed his interviewer
lliut pruciii'tii'.v all of Pi.m creek wa-
lerfroii'tigo on both sides nl ilie wutur
as fur us the Gamble street bridge was
owned by lhe ('.. P. H., as well us the
grculer portion of tho usable water
fronlagc on the south sborij of Hurrard
inlet. The question iiuturally arose al
Ottawa, if liny extensivo scheme of
luils.■! improvement is being carried
out, who is In benelit must largely from
lite same ami lbe only possible answer
was lliul Ibe C. P. II. und not the geu
erul public would reap the grcotest
benefits therefrom. Vet the C. P.. H.
positively declined to participate in
any such scheme, stating that while
they wuulil view wi111 pleasure auy developments of such a nature, they wuuld
not bo prepured to co-operate in the
scheme. Such 11 condition made it
much more difficult to curry 11 projoet
looking lu extensive harbur improve
incuts tu successful issue.
The report of Mr. Swan with referonce lo Hurrard Inlet was now in the
bunds of the guvernment. This report
deals almost exclusively with harbor
wurks ami equipment ami did uot deal
willi harbor administration, The report wus must comprehensive in every
respect. It-wus now under considcrO'
lion by the ilcpurliiicnt of public works
with a view to harmonizing ils several
engineering features with the puld
policy of lhe guvernment uml alsu for
tho purpuse of dividing what step it
wuuld be wise lo take first. Wheu the
Dual conclusions of lbc ilcparlmeiit
huve lieen reached ,tlie scheme will be
referred tu the respective public bodies
for diacuuiou. Meantime it was not
in the interests uf public business Ibal
toe dtchils should be made known. Mr.
Stcveus stuleil emphatically however
that Ibe reporl contemplates Improve
inputs whicii will meet with lhe approval of lhe North Shore, lu bis opinion,
the lirst and most important undertaking would be the construcliuu of a
lurge terminal elevator or liuudliug tbu
grain frum the prairie provinces
It wus his 1 nt .'ut iuu tu take up with
the various public bodies al an early
date, tbo question of the adminiatra
tiuu of harbor mutters
Willi reference lo locul mail urruugc
iiienls. Mr. Stevens stated lhat Mr.
Ross, superintendent of post offices is
i|ue to arrive at Vancouver any day
uud lhat ho will go finally into thl
matter uf mail orraugcuients fur North
Vaneouver. Mr. Stevens confidently ox-
peeled thai be would succeed in securing lhe cily the advantage uf free mail
As fer the post ulliee sile, the post
office department was mil prepared for
lbc advance which the price awarded-
by lhe arbitrators represented over Ihe
price virtually agreed upon wilji tbe
city council, iinmely ♦70,01)0, Tbe gov
eminent did not deem itself altogether
responsible for lhe delay in arriving al
an arbitration and did uot expect that
there would be so much increase in
value iu su short u time. As for the
Inni.hue- ,lbey were nol c onsidcrcd of
prui'iit'ul value by Ihe department, end
Mr. Stevens was of opinion lhat tbe
transfer could be consummated at tbr
price set ou tbe lots, namely $1111,060,
but bcyund ibat lie bad no hope of Inducing tbe gqvcruuieul to go.
Referring to tbe drill hall, he had the
assurance of Hon. Sam. Hughes that
the structure would be built out of tbe
geuerul fund provided for that purpose
and lhat it would be extended from
time lo lime at occasion might demand
Iu concluding Ibe interview, Mr.
Mel..-m .luted that several of the min
islers Intcmifi. '.. viwt the west this
season. They would journey separately
and al lhe respective times at whieh
each migbl be able to arraugc Ibe busi

H. H. Stevens and Canadian Pacific
Railway Route Map
suited the pleasure of the C. P. R. toIabsence. Mr. Stovens wished parti-
allow Iheir cars to bo moved. Sucb I culorly to impress tbe fact Ibat tbese
an arrangement would not bo at all visits wero made for strictly business
satisfactory lo other railway companies, purposes and tbe ministers desired Ibe
Sir Thomaa admitted that in tbo or : public bodies fo view the matter io
dlnary course of buiincil that would that light. While public functions would
probably be about tbo way in wbicb 'doubtless be is Order to a certain ex
the arrangement woeld work out.
I The poaitioo taken by hlm on all
points with iui us i" '■ to the route map
had been discussed personally with the
president of the O. P. .It. aad it had
not been claimed from that source tbat
that position WW Other than renwnftdo
in every particular, from the standpoint of public Interests.
Turning to harbor mettore Mr. Steven ttlitA that tke greateil <U*fuity
tent, Mr. Stevens placed particular stress upon the fact lhat tbe mm
islers emu bo seeking information io
order that Ihey might return possessed
of an intelligent knowledge of the ae
t uoi needs of tho weat. He further
stated Ibat the North Shore would be
given adequate opportunity to make It*
resources, advantage! and requirements
fully known to each minister w he ap
psarid upon tie loene.
The following emphatic letter from
Mr. 11 II. Stovoui, M.P., eddroiiod to
tbo secretary of tbe Nortb Vancouver
Board uf Trade, was read by Mr. Don-
allium un Wednesday night when the
board convened iu tbe city ball:
House of 1 'iiiiiiiinnii.
Ottawa, 3rd April, 1912.
Dear Sir,—I have yours of thu 26th ult.
to baud re thc (1. 1'. II. route map. i
am not conscious of having been neglectful regarding this perplexed question.I have written letters which would
cover reams of paper in connection
with the sume. I have made two trips
to Montreal and am making a further
trip to Montreal tomorrow in au endeavor to get the matter sctlicd.
. Up to the present moment tbe O. 1*.
R. have not ugrced to one single condi-
Imu being iiiipiiiicl. The Minister has
intimated his willingness tu upprove if
Ihey will accept tbe conditions, but
they bave not even expressed uu Indication to accept any conditions, uther
tbau the favorable assurance uf Sir
Thiiiiiiis Shuughncssy that they would
advise as snun as the full reporl wus
received front their officials iu Vuncou
Vuur lluiir.l questions the advisabil
ity uf making lbe prutectiou of street
ends a condition, lit my miiul Ibis is
of vital Importance, as lhe experience
of  Vancouver should  demonstrate.
Again, you question tbo advisability
of buying the 0, P. B. agree on the
North Shore to work In harmony with
a harbor commission, in my est imu
tion, tbis ia the most important point of
all. The greatest difficulty of working
a harbor commission at tbo presout
time is tlio position of the tl. P. B. on
tho south aide uf the inlet and in Falae
(Ircek, and if we do not extract ffom
tbem some ussuroucu as regards tbe
North Shore, the whole Inlet will be
completely bottled ami practically uuder tbe control uf tbe C. P. R. This
point I discussed fully with Sir Tlmuian
Sbaughitcssy and he Dually admitted
that I was perfectly correct. I might
further slate tbat be told me ut lbc
time that tbey were uot in any particu
lar rush to have thc approval ut this
time, that their main object iu making
tbe application was to get in first ami
anticipate uther ruads. He did not
mean iiu'ii Ibis, however, that tbey
wuuld not construct; wbal he did mean
wus thut they were looking after nunc
ber one and were particularly concerned ubuut lite public's interests.
Ou my return in a few days'.time
nothing will please me better than tu
have tbe personal opportunity of meet
ing the keenest critics of my attitude
that are in Norlb Vancouver.
Very truly yours,
Tne board ordered Ibis letter to lie
furinully laid over, in view of the fact
that on Tuesday uight in Ursou's i'u
viliou Mr. Stevens will himself address
a meeting uf citizens.

The deopest griefs that Ibo human

Tbey aru too intense to hope for

emotions of sorrow, whoso Intensity is
mi, li tbat tbe mind appears to become
benumbed, to lose for tho time tbo power -of ..ri,'■!! 11 ii ii and to be incapable
of realising tbo magnitude of the onl-
amity, which has been sustuiued. These
are tba griofs howovor, which carry
with tbem tho possibility of tbe gravest and most permanent harm to the
Blrailtrly—humanity is siis'ceptiblu to
sudden and overwhelming disasters,
soiuu of which arc local in their nature

ibete fearful catastrophes tbo public

tber bus it ut command tbe means fur

Human ii.inn.' simply lacks the depths
of fooling uud the power of utterance
which would measure and express the
magnitude of such a visitation. But
becausu of Ibe utter helplessness of the
situation, viewed iu tbo above light,
liuinan nature lias invariably been found
ull tho more ilulorniiiied to gel at tbu
rouses which rendered possible and
which precipitated the dread disaster.
With u calamity of this nature have

world wishes to firlly oxnnernfo all

tbo more strenuous in its efforts, lo
arrive ut Hie causes uml to adopt such
.pleasures as will protect it as fur ai
lies within human powor, from lhe
possibility of any similur recurrence
upun uny sralu whatever.
Tho agitation which lias arisen of
late In certain sbippiug circles with respect to tbo type of l .ui;-' to be built
at Second Narrows promises ut best, to
prove a negative quantity. Iiiusmuch
us there is uo reasonuble expectation
of Ihe .i,.siii,iiiii. being successful, tbo
utmost that ils promoters can hope to
accomplish, is lo embarass the situation
.for those who havo long hud this pro
ject iu bund ami who buve ut.length
succeeded in carrying matters forward
to Hie point at which something uf a
tangible nature will accrue from Ibeir
In thc lirst plarc tbe project of building u high level bridge bas uot by any
means been overlooked by the directors
of llurrurd lulet Tunnel und Bridge
Compauy, but tlieir investigations huve
amply proven lhat the cost of sueb u
structure would be prohibitive, namely
aboot six million dollars, sud further
tbat tbo usefulness of such a structure
would bo greatly restricted as conipar-
ed wilh the bridge which it is prupused to build. Whatever may be the lit
sirability uf a high level bridge tbeorel
ieally, it is not feasible, uor is necessary from the practical standpoint.
The type of bridge which it is pro
posod to build is a semi high level
bridge wilb u height of fifty live feet
above lhe water which will permit all
craft up to medium sixc to pass under
without tlie opening of the draw spun.
Tlie plan shows a double bascule bridge
consisting of two leaves, one lifting
toward the nurth and the ulher toward
the ..,,mli Inasmuch as this type re
ipiires no centre pier, il fulluws Hint
wben the draw is open there will be a
clear waterway for Hie entire width
of tho opening.
Tbo site of tbe "bridge has been
examined iu several instances by com
potent bridge engineers, none uf whuni
bus considered lhe In^b level bridge
necessity. Tbt linn pf engineers by
whom tba bridge is being designed
stands withopt a peer in the world in
ibis department of tbe profession apd
tha oiigiueeriiig depnrliiient of t||e department of Marine ami Fisheries concurs witb tbem in tba opinion that the
semi'highloyel bridge of tbo double
bascule, is in every respect suitable for
thu location.
Tho department of marine and Usher
iea has demanded tbat tbe draw musl
havo i, width of 860 feet. This may
possibly lie modified to a width of 301)
feet, but that will be tlio minimum, hi
any case, Thoso who have at command tho information necessary for
making comparisons state tbat the on
i in me in the harbor of Yokohama,
for illustration, is only threo-hundred
fool wido and It is so tortuous that
vossels uro compelled to wind thoir wuy
in and out, yat the largest ocean going
vessels of deopest draught freipient
tbut purl. At Second Narorws not unly
is the cbuiiuol perfectly straight, but
tho tide likewise runs iu u perfectly
st migbt course, so tbut there is absolutely no danger of a vessel deviating
from hor courso because of cross eur
rents. Under tbusu conditions, it certainly uppeurs to the lay mind that
an open waterway two hundred feet
in width should be amplu for ull pur-
potts for wbicb the draw span through
Second Narrows bridge will over be
called into requisition'
It is, of course, advisable thul every
phase of this important project be carefully considered ami lbat evory consideration that is urged as bearing upun
tbo situutiun be allowed full weight,
but after all has been said it it to ask
uul.', even bunded fairness, to expect
tbut the project lie mil unduly obstruct
od by fanciful theories or iinreusiiuable

On Friday, tbp 20th inst, at tbe Horticultural Hall thoro will bo presented
au odiciout prodpetiop of tyro excooil-
ipgly funny little comedies, namely
"0|d Oroniea",and "Tho Area Belle"
•In the former Captain Pidgeou is
almost caught in tbt matrimonial net
but bo has a luck} oscape and lives
"happily cvor after."
Mr. Ernest V. Young, wbo is an actor of wide experience, givOB a sploudid
portrayal of au old lexicographer in
tbo charactur of I'rof. Jacks, and Mr.
II. II. Stoker as au irascible old cap
lain Ih a fitting companion.
lu the "Area Belle" tbe female elc
ment in Introduced and Mum Archibald
as "I'euolopo" gives an exceedingly
accurate impersonation of a London
boimi'inaiil, iicr weathercock affections
get her into hot wator—figuratively
speakings--while sbe gets her policeman
lover, Mr. Knurl Adanisou, into hot water— literally speaking—when sho hides
bim in the clothes boiler.
Minn Marie Archibald as Mrs. Crocker—a nuisance of u mistress—persist-
clly comos on the scene, when sbe is
lol expected. She. is exceedingly—whul
shall we Bay—effeminate. That is, she
loses her temper keeps changing her
mind und win^ge to make everyone
miserable because she bus been disap
pointed. ,
Mr. Ernest V. Young, iu this cut,
bus the part of a milkman and again
shows u litie interpretation of the char
actor uml bis erstwhile friend, Mr. II.
11. Stoker, is uow a red coated rival in
lbe iburui'ler of Private Tossir. Both
the polii-cinun uud the soldier escape
but this time lbc milkman is caught iu
tho net. However, the players stop
with comedy und leave tlie tragic post
nuptial purl tu tne imagination of the
more morbid of the audience.
In the two performances Ihere is au
boor und u bull uf ceaseless fun.. The
Nortb Lonsdale orrbestra will rondel
Ibe following pieces: The King of toe
Turf, Dear Little Uliost of Your Smile
Maiibutlun llearb, Balkan Princess,
Every Littlo (iirl I Love is Some One
Else's Wife.

With regard to the controversy
which lias arisen over the proposed
widening of Fourth street, there ure
live principal points (o be kept iu mind
1. PUBLIC UTILITY-IS It a matter
of necessity, iu tbo public inlerest,
linn any streets in the dowutdwn
section should be wideucd when
all streets there, runuiug east and
west ure already 80 feet iu width,
with tli? exception of two, tbe Es
planade and First street, which are
lull feet wide west of I.onsdule
2. (1HADE8—is it wise lo interfere
witb Ine registered grades on l.ons
dule avenue, us would be necessury
in tbe process of widening the side
streets I
:i. FINANCE—Ought the city's credit
to be strained at the present time
with the llnuueing of such schemes
as' the wideuing of streets when so
much ueccssary work iu the way
of streetgradiug, installing sewers
and water connections, still re
umiui to be duuet

A Secret Known to Two j

Jim snd I sr* twins. Ws don't look
as much alike ss w* did when ws
were young, because Jim's hair hss
grown much grayer than mlue and
I've a scsr on my left cheek. But up
to thirty tbe members of our own family touetlmes-bad trouble telling us
apart. -   ,
There wat a breakdown lb the family wben Jim aud 1 were eighteen
yeara old. Father died without leav-
lug unythlng, and Jim and I bad to
inn.il.- 1 found a situation In une concern uml Jim 111 another. Later I wu
tent uvviiy to ettabllsb a branch of tbe
I.u. im'-..-i lu uuothcr city, while Jim ro-
iiiiiiih'iI where be waa. I budn't secu
lum for two years when I heard that
he wuu III and lu n hospital. Tbe news
wus too much for my ability to runiuin
u wuy from lilin longer, so I Died things
up In my business for sn abseuce, took
a uuin uud on ui ilml went from the
stitilou direct to tbe hospital.
Jim hud u private room, and I was
shuwu to It by uu attendant I found
hlm In bed, but Itlstead of allowing effects of uu iiiui'... 1 couldn't eeo but
thut he looked as well us ever, lie
wns mighty glud to see me, as I wus
to see him. I asked bim to tell me
about himself uud bow it wus thut be
,"i I" -iii'.l so well upd yet conllued to
bis bed. Hi uu. me one of those
frightened looks Intended to Impose silence. Then, pulling uie dowu towuril
hlm. he whispered lu my eur:
"1 want to get out of this. Your
coming Is u godsend- Oet off your
clothes In u hurry uud tumble Iuto bed.
I'm , min; lu put them ou uud muke
my wuy out Nobody will kuow tbe
difference hetweeu you uud me."
He looked su anxious aud eager thul
I Immediately begao to hustle off my
clothes, und us fust as I got out of tbem
Jim got inin litem. As toon as I wus
In bed und .llm. was dreetcd I said,
"Now tell me ubout It"
But Jim gave me anotber frightened
look, us much us to say tbat be couldn't
think of dolug so, und was about lo go
when I clutched bis coattall and sulil:
"For heaven's sake, don't leave me
this wayl Tell me bow long I'm to
stay here anyway."
"I dou't dare tuke tbe time. If my
nurse should Uud us both here ll would
prevent my getting out In your pluee.
(She's liable to come In any minute."
"Well, one tblug you must do-ntlend
to my business for me-tbat Is, if I'm
to bo kept bere any length of lime."
"All right; I'll do It" be said. And
before I could get anotber word out of
bim be wus gone.
Uo needn't bave been In eucb s bur

couie in for half an hour. At the end
of Ibat time Ibe door opened, and a
very pretty specimen of femlulully entered. She wat dressed In u nurse's

Sbo came up to my lied, looked down
upon mo sympathetically—lovingly, It
teemed to me-placed ber baud ou my
forehcad-a warm, soft one und suld:
"1 really must report that you are
ready to be discharged. The bouse surgeon will Und Ibis out pretty ioou, and
I'll get myself Into trouble."
Here was a pretty go. Jim bad departed without glvlug me the slightest
; Jiim what part to play. Tbe ouly .tblug
1 could do waa to be uoneommlllul aud
learn 01 much of the sltuttlou OS 1

und how serlutis this wuuld ho to hlm
I did not know. I hud beeu placed lu
