DOMINION DAY CELEBRATION
EXCELLENT PROGRAMME BUT RAIN UPSETS ARRANGEMENTS
Tba marked efficiency which charac-
" tsrisad th* conducting of tho annual
1st ol duly celebration on Saturday last clearly showed that (bo
North Shore is learning Irom expsii-
snpo and lhat the handling of this
event is being reduced to a systematic basis which augurs well lor thu
nieces, ol future celebrations. From
the very inception of events the pi-i
gramme on Saturday went with n
smoothness and a swing which evidenced the lacl thai the org*sir ition
had every detail of the occasion under
perfect control. The committees und
tho manager got along famously with
thi management until shortly alter
nidtn when Jupiter I'luvius took
things in hand, whereupon the com-
mlttsss relinquished control, the cm-
tMtants retired from the event's, tbe
crowd melted away and for the remainder of the day there was "nothing doing"
Promptly at I en o'clock Commander
Stewart ol H.M.C.S. Rainbow landed
at Larson's wharf and was met by
Mayor McNeish and Heave UcNaught.
Five hundred Boy Scouts headed by
the N. V. City Band formed in procession and marched to the oily hail
where the formal opening proceedings
vera held. Mayor McNeish, in u short
address referred lo the significance of
the occasion and emphaiued the fortunate circumBtancei of peace, prosperity snd plenty which prevail
throughout Canada at the present
time. On behalf of Norlh Vancouver
oity and district he welcomed the offi-
ours snd men of H.M.C.S. ltainbow
upon Ihis the first visit of the first
Canadian warship to the North
Shore. Miss Jennie (Iruhnnie, the little dsughter of Mr. and Mrs. Walter
(iroliuinc, then presented Commander
Stewart with a magnilicent bouquet uf
ro*4 ^accompanied by tba following
addrsss i
"On beball ol the girls and boys ol
North Vancouver City and District, I
beg to present you, I'.iminiindcr Slow-
art (thl officer commanding tils dr.1.
Canadian warship to visit us) wiin
emblem of Peace— lloses-but we well
know thai if at any time danger from
a hostile nation threatens our beloved
country, our homes will be safe in
your keeping. We bid you welcome lo
North Vancouver, and wish lhat or.
this, tbe Natal Day of our country,
you, your officers and criw oi tho
Bainbow, will so enjoy ypjirsslvH lh«i
you will want to come back again."
In a few words Commsnrtsr Stewart
made an appropriate reply expressing
the pleasure ol himself and his follow
oOcers and the men of Ihe Rainbow at
being present and also the hope that
|iis ship snd her complement of mm
would be able to respond to any dff
annuls that their calling inighi place
upon them in the future years.
Mayor McNeish then officially diil'i''

THE MARATHON RACE
Shortly after tho ceremonies in inn-
■taction with Ihe official opening <<t the
day were completed,'the Uolvu-inilii
, marathon road race, the chief athletic
event of th* day was started in front
of the cily hall,
Sensnteen magnificent specimens, of
manhood, every muscle tense in expectation, formed a double line on First
itreet, then the crock ol the starter's
] gun in the hands of Mr. Selsaury aped
them on the long monotonous grind.
Hamilton, tbe local runner, sst the
poo* during tbo first two or three
' mils* of th*, race and to Ibis may be
attributed the fact of his finishing ip
8th place, although against such *
classy field ol distance men tbe position in which he arrived at ths taps
ii far from a d'Jwnorabl* one.
At the fint orhe fourth mile Hog-
cri ol the Y.M.C.A., Vancouver, look
th* lead, with McDonald. Vancouver,
Athletic Club, end Wanning, Vancouver, unattached, running io second sad
third .positions. Tha positions of these
throe leaders remained practically unchanged until the nipth mils when
Rogers dropped book and McDonald
changed places with Manning, the latter taking the lead which bo maintained to the taps. As with a long,
swinging stride ol seeming untiring
buoyancy the winner passed between
th* long lines nf the populace leading
McDonald the second man by a hall
minute cheering thousands perched on
the mountainous piles ol dirt thrown
up liy sewor construction gave him sn
ovation of which-a king might well be
propd.
The course lay along First street to
St. Andrew's, thence to Keith Road
snd the Boulevard, thence to the
I'lniik Road to Lynn Valley and the
Lynn Creek intake and return over
the same streets, comprising in all a
distance of 11] miles, which was
covered by Manning in 1 hour, 4 minutes and fiti seconds.
Out of the seventeen entries Ihe fourteen in. n finishing wore as follows : 1,
Manning, unattached, time 1.04.8*}; 2,
McDonald, Vancouver A. ('., lime,
1.06.30; 3, Downey, Vanoouver A. fi,
lime 1.06.011]; 4, E. Manderi, Vancouver, unattached ; 6, McLean, Vancouver Y.M.C.A.; 6th) Rogers, Vancouver V.M.C.A.; 7, Nash, Nuncnuvor A,

unattached ; 0, 1. C. Morrison, Vancouver A. C.; HI, Samuel Thornton,
Vancouver, unattached; 11, Owen Fin-
dale, Vancouver, unattachod ; 12, T.
J. Allen, North Vuncouver, unallucii-
ed; 13, John Reilly, Vancouver, ni.'
attached ; 11, Robt. Smith, Vancouver
Y.M.C.A.
Tbe gameness of the runner, T. J,
Allen of North Vancouvor, is worthy
of note, fnr although his bet recline
mi and blistirod in a painful manner
)n the light gymnasium shorn he v«,
weaiing, he completed the griiulini
round, doggedly pegging awny although owing to the swollen conditions nl his fuel he was far in' the
rear during the latter pari nt tb*
course.
Tho oilii'iul.i in charge of the race
wci-e somewhat hindered ut ihe beginning by Ihu learned discourse of a
number of local experts and authorities on matters of this nature and owing to the lime taken up in absorbing this additional knowledge nearly
half an hour's delay was caused.

Tho toast list at the complimentary
banquet given last evening al the Palace hotel to the offiasrs of H.M.C.S.
Rainbow called forth some highly inlet-eating snd instructive utterances
from the speakers. Mayor McNeish
presided and was particularly happy
in romurks with which be opened the
speech making portion ol tbe program
and in hii introduction of the wverul
toasts and speakers.
The toast "Ths Empire" was proposed by Ex-Muyor May who in eloquent snd stirring terms enlarged upon the greatness, the stability of'he
British Empire, th* destiny of tbs British people and tbe privileges of British citisansbip.
In replying to this toast Mr. Geo.
H. Cowan, K.C., M.P. submitted some
valuable comparative statistic* as to
tbe naval and military strength of nations bordering on tbs Pacific ocean.
"Every British subject," ssid
Mr. Cowan, "has inherited pride
iu the royal navy of Groat Britain,
looking upon it as the greatest safeguard of citizenship and building
force of ths Empire. Britain hid this
thought uppermost whin in the interest* of safety ihe sent Commander
Stewart to our shores." The speaker
called attention to the fact that Can-
ndii's Atlantic seaboard was within
striking distance ol the British fleet,
and therefore no invasion might be re
Ssonably looked for from that qusr
tor. On tho Pacific, however, it was
different. When Britain found it nsc-
ossary to withdraw hsr bstllssbips
from the Pacific, then wai Ihe mastery
of tho Pacific in doubt. Today Japan
can put 300,000 men with merchant
nun uu: sufficient to transport tbos*
troops to our shores. In 1016 when
Ihe alliance between Great Britain
uud Japan has expired then the latter
will have a fleet of dreadnoughts and
a,nn "i -1 cruisers equal to those of almost any nation. Japan in making
an invasion has no colonies scattered
iu other pin in of the world of which
she has to think, her Interests are
-s iiiii,I in ihe Pacific, she ii an alert
and onturpriiing nation wilh a proud
and virile government, an enemy to be
(cured. On the other hand Canada he
neither military or naval force, with
Iho exception of a militia of 60,0110
men. What would prevent Japan n
other powvi ful nation! nn the Pacific
from taking possession of our coast
line a month before the shipiof England might arrive through tbe 'Panama Canal, or in the event of Japan
al war with the United Stale* what
would prevent her from taking possesion of Canadian ports as Hoot head
quarton. Canada ai a neutral nation would necessarily have to prevent this and with no fleet it would
be impossible.
Mr. ('swan advocated the formation
of a mid-ocean fleet consisting of four
unit! to guard the British cossl lin*
on tbs Pacific*. These lectors,
said the speaker, could act as a de-
lerring agent against tbs ships of an
invading country until ths other
squadrons of the empire arrived. II
such a project might b* carried out
Britain might continue bar hitherto re-
liitlow march for naval supremacy of
tho world.
Mr. Cowan's speech was awarded
storm of opplou«e.
Tbs first to**t on the program wai
"Tha King" proposed by the Chairman, Mayor Wm. McNeish, who spoke
of the pressnt si a Biting tims to
celebrate, being immediately *ft*r the
coronation of our king aad th* cole
bration ol our grand natal holiday,
July lit.
Mr. Porcy King, in proposing ths
toast "British Columbia" called attention lo Ihe greal natural resources
ol Iho province stating thai lbs revenue of II, C. yearly exceeds that portion of Canada stretching Irom tba
lake* to th* Rookies. Tbe speak'
said that it was true that many midc
fortunes in Iho middle west, but alter
making them the}' came to enjoy tin
beautiful climate of th* coafl onri
spend it.
In responding lo thii toast C E„

Aa ths number for th* constituency
of North Vancouver Hon. F. Carter-
Cotton M.L.A. was not preient. Mr.
A. (i. Perry proposed the toast "Our
City snd District" ia a manner that
loft nothing to he desired and handed
out the bouquoti to equal proportions.
Reive McNought, to uuiwering this
toast, gave a somewhat lengthy discussion on matter* of interest regarding th* district, „'%.
Aid. Dick on behalf of th* city
council, said that whan bs first observed hi* name on tb* programme in
this connection he was snnoyed. All
ths gentlemen present war* aware that
b* was not a public speaker. He however, construed th* motive as an act,
ol OQurtesy as no doubt it bad been
surmissd that by the tlm* Reeve McNought bad finished bs (Dick) would
have reached that stags where be
would have been unable to aay anything at all. BeferringHo the remarks
of Mr. Cowan, Aid. Dick said that
Canada bad always responded when
the need aross and in his opinion tbi
talk of Japanese invasion was nonienss.
No matter what party affiliations ars
politici should b* forgotten toni .'In -'
said he, and that we should itand not
for North Vancouver only, but for th
Empire.
The roof shook with tbe patriotic
applause which wai accorded tbe alderman lor his brief but pointed
speech.
Aid. Henderson, in proposing ths
toast "Our Navy" confsssed that his
blood invariably stirred wbsn be
thought of ths deeds pf our rasa ol
fighting (nretothsn. "Giv* »s Commander Stewart, Mid the Alderman,
"Bill'Dick, good Oh) McNciah, Aid.
Smith with his Scotch blood and
Reevs McNaugbt, and on dark nigh'
we will glide to the Rainbow out of
the First Narrows and sweep tb*

1800 as compared with today as fellows : 1900, 183,000,000; 1910, 1313,-
000,000. Tbi* is th* burden which ths
British taxpayer is today staggering
under, continued tbe speaker, to spits
of the (sot that not a shot has b**e
fired by British warihipi in hostilr
conflict with anothsr oation lor 60
years. Concluding his remarks ths
alderman ajured Canadians not to forget the race to which they belonged.
Th* guest of honor, Commander
Stowart of the Rainbow, in answering
this toast, took opportunity of thanking tbe Mayor and citixens for lbs
hospitably which had been extended to
than sod spoks of tb* Magnificent
scenery around North Vancouver.
Commander Stewart outlined tbs policy which Britain had to mind whilst
constantly training bar young sons to
tbs knowledge of modern method, ol
warfare, and gsve it as his opinion
that no finer training (outsrd* ol tt e
profeaiioual part ol It) could ba secured lor a young man. "Por ha is a

DOMINION DAV 'CELEBRATION
The civic committee which had in
hand the arrangements fnr this year's
celebration of Dominion Day is tn be
commended for the departure which
was msdo in placing the organization
upon a permanont business basis. The
annual celebration nf the 1st of .lulv
on the North Shore is now a recognized fixture and has taken its place
amongst thu local institutions, among
which it takes nn mean rank in point
of actual value to the city nnd the
district, and it is, therefore, not only-
desirable but essential that ihe methods should conform lo those approved by tho best business usage. The appointment of a business manager for
the celebration to devote bis entire
lime and attention In ils interests
was undertaken for Die ti. .-i lime this
year and has In,night about most
beneficial results. Tho committee was
fortunate in si-curing Ihe services of
Mr. T. S. Brown in Ihis rapacity
whose tact, energy and ability contributed in large degree lo the excel
lent system which prevailed through
out the organisation. The handling ol
all receipts and expenditures through
Ihe business innneger properly ays-
i.-iiiniizi-s ilus department of the- celebration nnd ensures ,-vp,,|iii,,n ns well
ns accuracy. Tho sySlem ol files and
the set of hooks wilh which Ihe manager's office is lining ,s|uip|s.l pmvid-
M a pel iiiiiii, nl. clear and convenient
record ol nil Iransai'lious, brings every
item of detail under the ilirifl nqier-
vision of Ihe linniue committee and
thus under the nilelllgelil control "'
the general committee, Them" records
will likewise prove of very great us
liitance to Ihe committee from yeui
lo year in enabling il to get to work
promptly ami In proceed ex|ieditiiiusiv
thus preventing (lie delay and loss ol
time which has been experienced in
previous years in arranging the pro
gram and the olhcr Initio,- nl iheo,
ration.
The first of duly celebration is now
upon a sound business fooling such ns
becomes n permananl civic institution
and inch as should commend il to the
fulled confidence and Ibo heartiest ro
operation of nil rlnssos of citizens
from year lo year.
ROCKY Mill NTA1N FOREST
.   RESERVE
The   setting   aside   of    Ihe    Rocky
Mountain forest rwcrve has l„.-i,   	
ul Ihe most important advance* yet
modi in the industrial history pf Canada's central weal. Not only is il im
portent for the preiervalion ol Ihe
forwti along Ihe slope wilh a view to
thr Inline supply of limber, but Ihe
pro**rvation of ll,,-. forests and Iheir
proper management means much for
Ihe preiervalion ol the woterpowers
and Ihe maintenance ol thai steady
and permanent water How which is so
sssontial, to their value. Moreover, the
regulation of Iho waler of these
*tr«Bns, io aa lo provide a steady
flow throughout the yrur and not lo
have * t on en I ia I flow in spring un-l
(what I* of even more importance)

During th* whole of th* past mat
m* (IHIO) two perti*. ii tin Dora-
Ja*» torn* Msyris* war. to th* geld
marking out the boundaries ol there-
serve. Both these partiss started from
Calgary; one worked south snd succeeded in getting ss far south as tha
international boundary, while the other, working north, reached a point almost due west of Laoomhe (Alta.).
During the coming summer the location of the boundary will be continued and it is expected that the entire
.iii.iein boundary nf the reserve
(which extends some forty to fifty
miles north nf the latitude nf Edmonton) will lie determined.
The general principle governing the
fixing of the boundary of the reserve
was thai only foreit land should be
included in the reserve, all land fit for
farming (unless in area so small that
it was not worth while to make the
exception) being excluded from the
reserve. Ihe altitude of height of the
country ahnva Bea-levd, was one ol
the chief considerations in fixing the
line.
It was found thai the boundary fixed by the Order in Council by which
the reserve was set apart was, tn a
considerable extent, unsuitable, It in-
cluiled, in the words nf one nf the
writers, "only alpiue country, a large
portion of which is above the tree
limit iiiiii Ihe remainder unsuitable as
regards limlwr supply fnr yean tn
coma. Large portions ol il have be - ll
burned uver, leaving bare, eroded hillsides which were formerly covered by a
linn soil and rainiferoui wood growth.
Mini, country east nf Ihe line hai n
very ihin soil and is al a very high
all il ude and so is unfit for agricultural sel4lenient." Many valleys, however, were found which will lie quite
.nimble for grazing.
hires have rreated lerrible havoc
with the forests of the region. In the
pnrt from Calgary norlh il is estimated thul eighty per cent, of the territory rnvercd has been humid over
within the past filly years, and lhat
•ven vviiliiu the lasl twenty-five years
forty-eight per cent, of Ihe entirenrc.i
hai been devaatnted while at least
sixty per rent, of tju- area from < ul
gmy southward has been fire-swept.
The nature nf the timber found on
the lop. has I••-■-.! directly determined
by this icpeiiiiil firing. The abundance
of lodgepole pine (a ipcciri nearly re
filled lo Ihe jack pine in often Iniind
on old hums in Ihe eail, ii the most
abundant timber, nnd much pnplar
(nf two or Ihroo species) is found.
The... Irons arc the fint lo spring up

vigorous growth got f«r ahead ol th,
slower-growing sprue.- and nil fir. In
the northern part of Ihe rrgion report
nl on about seventy-fiv* per cent, o
l he area is covered with lodgepole pi
in pure stand, Dial il, without the
mi.tun of any other tree.
In Ihe southern part it ii ealimated
that the lodgepole pine required thirty

The iiiuv.in of tho man will sup

man from the north, and Iiii mother
a Calholic from Iho loulb ol Ireland.
And Mr. Mcllride is Iho jierfcct umnl
gum 'of these two contradictory (ypei
of Irish life. He has abounding toleration for men of all creeds, recognizes no political diilinction btcauic
ol difference! in religious faith, and
wilh 1 ■ 1 mi I grace and goncral acceptance attends the bazaar for Ihe Catholic church and opening of Ihe Hup-

that he belongs to I hem in ovoiv

Some nine or ten years ago Mr.

mother bad to dye her clothes-
how much time and fuss it made ?
That was long ago. Nowadays
dyeing is no trouble at all—since
RAINBOW DYES
were invented — one dye for all
fabrics: wool, silk, cotton and

to separate the materials—no poisonous fumes, but a safe, agreeable

following about "Dlok" Hpllridu, of
ll. (i., as ha sails him, who is »t present In Euglond I
Tonight, an Influential gathering of
tbt powerful men in finance and politic* who are Intareated in the development sf British Columbia, will meet (6
do honor at a banquet to lbs Hon.
Richard Mcllride, the Prints Minister
of that province, to all (lanadian«,he
Is known by the lest official and for
mai term of "Disk" Mcllride. And
vary appropriately. Mr. Mcllride belongs to that ordsr of popular pa-
litioal figure* to whom th* masses in-
itinctively show at ones respect and
affection by preferring to oall then) by
their abbreviated Christian nome rather than by formal and wild pro*
of their official title and their (nil
Christian and surnsme.
First, lot nm try to make my reader
realite the mighty country ol who;
Mr. Mcllride is, and has been now
for nearly a decade, the controlling
lore*. British Columbia- comas upon
you as a mighty and a most affrighting surprise. For days, , perhaps
weeki, you have been passing through
ths ocean prairie of ths grsat province
of Saskatchewan, where night and
day you look out on that tremendous
espanss ol flat, yellow-grassed
black-soiled fields that in ths latter
part of tbe yaar will be thousands of
miles of waving corn. But the Haines!, unbroken to the horiion, end
unrelieved by even a hillock or a tres,
begins in the end to pal) and evtn
depress you, and in the winter time
you cannot well viiualitc the opulent
•plendor ol this flat ysllow and black
landscape that stretches More you
to length* ai illimitable ai the
■pherei. In Alberta the landsoap*
begins to bs relieved by the ratach
farms and the sight of. frequent
houses and human faces, and horses
and cattle; but there, also, you have
the illimitable flatness for many long
stretches of miles until you bsgin to
see In the fsr distance the mountains.
Ilut in Alberta the mountains still
look small tiny are not, but distsnoi
make* them look so. And then you
wake up Irom your disturbed slumber
in the railway (rain and as in a flash
you find yourself transported to a region where all around you gigantic
mountains, with lops either enveloped
in frowning mist or covered with
eternal suow, look down on you, snd
excite and soem even tq menace you.
You wind in awl out over bridge i
that soem like spider-attimpts to
crawl through the narrow ipacei left
by these terrible circumambient and
frowning mountains; you are continually in ths dsafeniug roar of
great riven falling precipitously
down rocky beds, or sudden water-
lulls in slpnt, you are in the midst of
natural scenery as beautiful, as solemn, and us affrighting us tbe region
of Z.'iiiinit and the Matterbom.
And then in time you' make your
e*c*|ii' from this region of my.Ury
•nd terror, and by and by you begin
to feel on your cheek the soil breet**
of tbe saa. You are approaching the
1'arific, and at you approach it you
become conscious of an entire transformation in your environment. Finally you get to tha wild bustle of
Vancouver, and thtrt Ihey will take
you to a park with gigantic trees,
with the grsanest and the most mai
live, and at tbe same time, delicate
I, i ns, pri Imp., in tht world and you
imagine that thit is l.olui laud in
companion wilh what you have been
..•.■ini; *ome days previously in thai
other Hntish Columbia ol gigantic
and snow-clad or mist-hidden mountains. Then you taks ittanw and
go to Victoria, ths capital ol th* Island of Vancouvsr, and ths political
capital, though soms hours from the
Mainland of tbs great province. And
(bare you find yourself in a city of
dauling beauty — of indsscrlbablt
chirm. Perhaps th* best impression
I ran give of Victoria is of a Pacific
Venice-it give* a suggestion of beautiful placid water everywhere without
the age and history *i ytt that make
Vanic* vtnerable, but; on tht other
hand, wilb vaster pile* ol beautiful
building! and with tbat snowy whit*
new that com** from the brilliant tun-
•him »nd lb* newneu ol the place.

Tbs showmen's caravans were an unfailing attraction. For una thinu; il appeared miraculous that households
could exist within SUch S small coin
pass and tbs reading of "A l'os|| Unbind ths Scenes" and stories of kidnappers lent a piece of imuginery dun

new li™,,I, spot irresistibly culled

The glamour and ths 'romance are
now tonod down by an actual osperi-

oight of us that it had its ups und

ths dowus wore predominant pari tiers
One ol the stall of ths technical
ichool, along with a low friends, look

neighborhood, arriving buck with a
glowing account of their fortnight
of adventure which sots muny pooplo
longing for a similar holiday, and a
man on tho outskirts of the town rose
tn the occasion by Idling curavuns
out oil hire.
After discussing the question lor
weeks uhoad ol tho holidays it was
decided that acaravanning we would
go, und after consulting inups and
contours of routes within range of llic
time at our disposal, it was decided
to go north via the Kibble Valley,
beyond Sutto and then cron the wa
tershed into Ihe lune Valley—Lunsf-

him ulter he wus dead uud buried.
Thu account rendered ran something
like this' "Tn one grey horse, £7 Jllc.
