TlTere were two outstanding mattorg
'■ which received prolonged and animal
oil attention at tho hands of tho city
council, at tho regular session hold
Tuesday evoniug. Tho oue was a lettergram from H. H. 8tevom, M.P. advising tbo council of tho unfavorable
attitudo of the post offico department
witb respect to tbe award of tho ur
bitrntors an to tbo value of tbo city
hall site ami tho other was a letter
from Oity Engineer Hancs dirocting
tho attention of tho council again to
his resignation handed in a month pre
viously and asking acceptance thereof forthwith.
Tho lettergram from Mr. H. H. Hlj-
vens read as   follows:   "Arbitrators
'      award too high, as buildiug will be re-
I       moved as early as possible.     Would
strongly urge that city agree to accept ninety-three thousand dollars for
laud ami  buildings and  give govern
ment possession at once, If possible,
j     'fhe advance is too much and  I  am
I      afraid it will stop the deal.   I-saw
Hir Thomas Sbaughnossoy ro rmite map.
He has placed it in Iho hands of Mr.
Marpolc.''
Alderman   Dick  strongly  contended
; that the government should stand   by
Ibe award of tho arbitrators.      Thc
government, he declared, bad. request
cd that  tho mailer be submitted  to
arbitration.   They had appointed their
arbitrator in rogular order and tbe decision  of  tbe arbitrators  was unanimous.     Therefore, as  a  matter   of
' ,   I'U'. policy, tbe government sbo.vld
f accept tho result of the process which
Ihey themselves bad cboseu by accept-
ting Iho award. He submitted comparative prives wbicb had lately been
paid for city property in similar Iocs-
, tions lo the eity hall site, to show that
' ' tbo valuation of tho arbitrators was
really well within the present prices
which arc being actually paid for pro
perty by private individuals.
Alderman Foreman was of opiuion
that thc matter should lie approached
in a broad spirit. It should be remembered that tlio property was lo be
j used for public purposes and iu any
event therefore, the public would still
havo the use and benefit of tb* pro
perty. He considered thai Ihis should
be allowed due weight and tbat the
council should be prepared lo take
'    a liberal view of Ibe situation.
Alderman Irwin directed attention
to tho fact that while the award of
Ihe arbitrators was perfectly clear as
lo tbo prico of lbc lots, it was certainly
somewhat indefinite with respect lo
the  valuo of the buildings and  gave
I ground for tho position taken by tbe
government .
On motion of Alderman Irwin, seconded by Aid. Dick, Mayor McNoisb
was appointed a committeo of ono to
take up witb tbe arbitrators Ibe matter of a reconsideration of their do
cision as to tbo value of tbo building*.
The letter from City Engineer Hanes
which precipitated a lively discussion
wu as follows:
"On accouut of the /act Ibat I do
not approvo of tbe subcontract wbicb
was let for supplying crushed rock to
tbo city of North Vancouver and on
account of tho fact tbat I havo been
definitely instructed to make assets-
raonlt, charging equal rates por yard
for rock all ovor tho eity, Instead pt
allowing mo to uso the rato per yard
a* specified in tho contract, 1 hereby
tender my resignation tp take effect
tonight, aud L trust that you will ac-
V cept the same and thereby avoid any
1     deadlock or furtber argument in toe
matter."
■■- _^J.4erman Foroman wa* in favor ot
complying with the request of the en-
gineer. The resignation had been pre
sented to Hie council several tines and
it was quite evident that It was Mr.
Hanca unalterable Intention Ito sever

Engineer Hanes „ tuftm ty a
question from the mayor, explained his
position, Inasmuch ss a decided ilif

boing wisely protected. Thousands of
peoplo visit the reserve every year
tp en joy the mountain scenery , tlie
Ashing snd tho hunting. It Ib not improbable thst iu a few years tbo re
serve will bo provided with numerous
chalots such as aro found in the Swiss
Alps for ihe cenvonlouce and safety
of tourists.
Adequate Appropriation Needed
It is obviously of great importance
that the reserve should lie carefully
protected from Ore, and bo otherwise
administered so as lo maintain th'i
forest growth. Wit b this end in
view tho Forestry braiich of the de
partmont of tho Interior is organizing
an erToctivo administrative forco and
is planning to cut trails snd construct
telephone lines through the reserve.
Tho forestry branch, however, bas beon
hampered by lack of funds. Mr. It. II.
Campbilll, tho director of forestry, slut
ed recently that whlie he Inul asked
for an appropriation of $110,1)00 or
about one cent au acre, to admiiiiider
Iho reserve, the government had reduced the amount to about $80,1100. t'om-
meeting on Ihis ot thc recent annual
meeting of tbe commission of censer
vntion, Hon. OlifTord Biflon said :
"It is quite possible that if this metier wero represented tp the govern
ment a little more strongly, it might
be willing to increase the amount. 1
do not know how you feel ubout it, but
for inysclf, I do not think that tbe
government is spendjiig money for any
purpose tbtt is more important than
thai; and it seems to mu that this is
oue of the oeeaii uis when we can
eomc lu contact with the government
for Ihu In in tit of the public."
Acting ou litis suggestion the fol,
lowing resolution was later |uisbci! by
Ihe meeting and afterwards presented
lo the government: "That iu view of
(he enormous iniportuuce of this oh
ject, Iho Commission of Conservation
recommends lhat an appropriation of
not less than $110,01111 be provided for
forest protection in lhe ltocky Mountains Forest Bctcrvo during the linn]
year 1012-13."

BTBONO    DISTINCTIVE    OHABAO
TBBI8TIC8 OF THB NOBTH
BHOBB
It would be difficult to conceive a
suction of territory more singularly designed by nature for distinctive development along Hues adapted to its
poculiar characteristics than is tbe
North Bhoro of Burrard Inlet .
Geographical Boundaries
As a basis for this statement, it is
imi nl il.' that the lines of doinarkatiou
whieh separate this territory geographically from adjacent territory on all
sides urn strung and pronounced, namely, on tho south, Burrard Inlet, on
tbe cast, Nurth Arm, on tbo west,
liowii Hound and ou tbo north the
mountains.
Tbo effect of these clearly defined
boundaries is soon in at least throe
particulars. First, thoy sharply deflno
tho Norlh Shore ua such and separate
it and its interests iu many important
 I" ii- frum the neighboring communities. Second, at the samo time—as for
tlie suuth, eusl ami wost—thoy aro of
such a nature Ibul not only do thoy
not present any appreciable barrier iu
the matter of communication with
uther communities, but thoy confer
very great advantages in tho way of
doep sea litoral and extended walur-
frontage upon tho North Shore. Third
in tboir inward influence, thoy Borve
lu unify tbe interests uf all that tor
rilory lying within their conAucs, to
s iiiiii' a community of intorosts amoSg
till portions of thai torritory and to
cvtablisli a compact domain, the wol
fare of ovcry portion ef wbicb is
iluscly and inevitably associated with
Iho welfaro of ovory other portion and
with tbo development of (lie whole.
As for llic boundaries on Iho fourth
side—Iho mountains—while Ibey neces
silato, it is true, a round about route
in order to reach tlie territory lying
beyond, this is a difficulty easily eur
mounted and is a vory trivial matter
indeed'us cimiparud with lhe invalu-
able advantages and resources which
lliusu I,,i,..I,nm,- smi, i upon lhe Norlh
Hll ore.
Natural Resources
In Hie mailer uf natural endowment,
llic torritory enrlused by tbo bouudar
let desigiiuled, has been favored lu an
unprecedented degree Nature appears
tu have been in one of her must mag
...n.ni,i.i. moods when with lavish baml
she bostnwed Iter .h.i- upun the
Nurth Bhoro uf Hurrard Inlel. II is
|inntioiiiililr if a minute search uf u
iiiiilineiit iniiild discover another soc
lum nf territory nf similar area sn
conspicuously oudowed witb natural re
sniirCoe ami advantages at unco so var
led, sn numerous und sn superlatively
desirable as those which are found iu
Ilus wonderful strip nf land, say Iwcn
ly miles lung by fuur miles wide.
Beaboard Advantages
Al the sea level there are upwards
nl twenty miles nf the finest deep aea
lit oral, manifesting individual fbar
acteristlri which enhance ils practical
value lo lbe bigliost pnssiblo degree
mul lying upon one uf the most mag
influent uatural harbors iu the world- -
a harbor which It is unlvorsaily acknowledged is destined lo accommodate one of lhe greatest, most populous ami v..:iiilmi,i industrial, commercial ami seaport centres un the
earth. The possibilities uf this ws-
i, hi.si,ii.,-, with respect In all thoso
features which go to build up a great
rity arc simply inestimable and beggar any attempt at imagination, much
less any effnrt to enumerate them in
sn many wnrds .
Townsite
■it ot this seaboard there lio many
square miles of territory whoso topographical characteristics render it an
altogether ideal iown-it., capable of
acepmmodating a city of practically
unlimited population of the largest
proportions and of the most pronounced
metropolitan characteristics.
Mountains M An Assst
Tho mountains which lmu;id fbu\
horizon on the nortb are rich in inin
eralH and In timber. Thete eitepsivc
uplands present wide areas suitable for
ths cultivation of fruit snd fnr kin
■lied pursuits. Their snow clsd sum
mite challenge the spirit of the intrepid mountain climber, while their
lowar elevations entice tbs aastour.
Frost  natsfa's  cold   storsgs   wars-
houses in tbese mountain fastnesses
sprlug iiinuiiHiriihlii streams, perennial
in their flow, uniting in mini) in
stances to form typical mountain riv
ers whoso mighty volume is sufficient
to provide a plentiful supply of the
purest water obtainable in tbe world
for tho needs of a vast urban popula
tinu for domestic, protective and in
dustrial purposes, The mountain can
yens deep-worn through the ages by
tho perpetual flow of wator, offer an
irresistible attraction to the tourist
whilo the mountain sides abound in
shady nooks and cool retreats, veritable olysiums for tho holiday maker
or pleasure seeker.
Ideal Ollmate
Those iimiiiiiiiiiin, whose serrated outline towers iu sublimo graudeuragainst
the background of tho northern hea
vens, constitute a mighty protective
colonnade, effectively shielding tbe
North shore frum cqld winds and cur
routs ami thus protected, tho gentle
slopes which strotch from their base
down to Burrard Inlet, lie with u d
lighlful southern oxposuro, revelliug in
Iho maximum of sunshine and enjoy
ing all Iho comforts of a climate, po
euliarly- free from drawbacks prevail
ing elsowhere and benign to a degree
which has already won for tho North
Shore a most enviable reputatiou in
this important regard .
North Bhors a Solidarity
These observations have boon made
for tho Jiurposo of adding efiiphasls
and force tn two statements, naifMi
lliut nature has oudowed the North
Shore to a most conspicuous degreo
with those iinm nl.- which inovitably
spe)] future greatness ami second thai
nultire has assuredly designed and re
quired thai the North Shore eball
stand as a firm and compact solidar
ity. That ils latent possibilities shall
be developed as a wholo.
The Blight of Sectionalism
Convoisely, therefore, thoso co'genl
facts sound a loud noto of warniug
agaiusl Hie toleration of any influence
sueh as wouhl weaken or counteract
the strong bonds with which nature
has bound thc wholo North Shore into
une. It is clearly unavoidable that
curtain artificial lines nf demarkation
..luiiil.I bu created from lime to time—
such as the springing up of industrial
centres, Iho division and ro division
nf tho territory into additional mum
cipalities—but tho benefits accruing
from such unavoidable features of progress will bo nii'-ei to a large oxtont
by a corresponding loss if thoy be allow-
ud to engondcr a harmful spirit of
sectionalism whieh msy lead to dis-
sonsion or wbicb will impair thu spirit
uf iii ill iiiii good will and co-operation
whicii should obtain throughout all
portions of the Nortb Shore, from
north to south, and from east to
west.
Broad   Oltlssnsblp   Required
'llu i. will be no room upon tbe
North Shore for the individual wbo
is meriily parochial in bis sympathies,
in his thinking and in his acts. The
times demand aud will demand in
ever increasing intensity a clllssnsbip
with liioiul ideas and broad outlook—
a citizenship which will ever sos
things in Iho steady light ef North
Shore development, North Shore enterprises, Nortb Shore problems,
Norlh Shore Institutions, Nortb 8'noro
ideals.' It is upon thia basis and upon
this basis alouo tbat the territory
within tho boundaries above described will be enabled to move rapidly
aud Irresistibly forward to the accomplishment of all tbat naturo has
designod tbat the North Shore should
become and to tbe highest and best
levelopinent of the private or community interest! of every cltizon wbo
is in any way or to any extent interested therein. The man wbo owns
but nne lot, or tbo man who owns
vory large holdings of real estate, tbe
man who is operating a ansl| business
or Iho man who has large sums invested in groat industrial or otber
enterprises—these snd all cltissns alike
should be duly impressed witb tbe
fact ud should allow tbe full tig.

little doubt that something ploug these

Alderman Hiss, when told pf the

Bslph McNoo, who, according to bU
mother, Widow McWeo, was tbe timet
lad North o( Tweefl, but who bad
■Amp a different Impression of his
rlrtuee to somo otliePs north of the
ainous river, was pleading bard wllh
farmer Alan-pleading, withal, tor
tbe band of the farmer's pretty lass.
Margery. And knowing tbat tbe heart
wa| already his, Maelor Itulpb mud;
exceeding bulj.
"Pm not so'poqr, nor so unseemly
In my looks, farmer," be said. "I've
a farm as big ss yours, and tbe finest
mother In Scotland. What moro could
a father want for hie daughter?"
Parmer Alan, wbo stood In bli eblrt-
sleevcB et hiu kitchen door, did not
allow this young scapogoat of a lad to
enter bis bouse.
"If you were big enough," be announced, looking fbp unembarrassed
lover up md down, "I'd givo you a
mighty good hiding! You ought not
even to know my Margeryl"
"But I dol"
"Ay, thai'a. so, snd she'll be sorry
for It."
"You'll nevor blame her?"
"Won't I Juetl And for your farm,
young man, H'b tbe most barren—"
"You're a Billy old Tory I"
"Ye lie I" exclaimed Alan at this Insult, and tben let It pass. "You're not
rich enough, or handsome ebougb;
and, mark my words now, you're not
good enough lor my Margery."
"My mother says I am," put In
young Bslph.
Alan looked up In a flaib.
"Oh, the Widow McNcol1' be said,
sn Infinite acorn ln bis tone.
"Well," cried Ralph, "and what's ths
matter with the Widow McNoo? I'd
be beholden to you, Mister Alan, for
tbe lnformutlon."
Tbe farmer spread out bis large
hands expressively.
"She's the fussiest, busiest, most deceitful old body In. tbe whole country I"
Kulph sniggered.
"She's the bonniest, prettiest mother a lad ever had to kiss him good-
nlsbtl"
''PrettyI" gasped the farmer. "She's
fifty-"
"FortyI" replied the youth. "Now,
come, Mr. Alsn, you know sbo'e tbe
only body ln these parts who baa ever
got tbp better of you. She runs tbe
firm better tbau yours, sbe could get
more milk out of a motor car tban you
could out of all your cows, ud she
fairly beat you over that field of Donald's."
"You young scampi   You young—"
But hi» wrath got the better of him.
It was well known round Falrdare
ibat the Widow McNee had long
shown Alsu how a nroaporoui farm
ought to be run. when be spoke
again It wss In a burst of dismissal.
"Oat you off. my lad," bo cried, "before I kick you borne to yon fins
mother of yours I And if I find you
banging around Murgery, I'll murder
tbe vtfy shadow ol you I"
So It was thai Muter Ralph, fairly
bursting with bla story, took himself
uml bis troubles back to bis mother.
As ever she received hlm wltb sympathy.
"You want to marry Margery, lad?"
ibe ssid.
"Ay, asd tbe old man would not
hear of It, He's beard wicked, untrue
talcs of yOur poor boy, mltber."
The widow raised ber eyebrows
shrewdly.
"If he's only beard true ones It's
)ullo enough," ihe suld   "Hit I do not
like ihe mon refusing a McNee for Us
lus."
"lis certainly Inconsiderate on you,
niithi-i," Ralph murmured.
Tbe widow rose and went, to tba
door wboro ber cloak bung.
"Wbat are you going to do?"
"I'm going tq yon Alan," the widow
announced, taking a bonnet from a
cupboard. "I'm a woman of action,
lad. 1 wish you wore, but you're not."
Tbo widow's eyes sparkled, whlcb, by
tho way, became ber mightily. "Yes,'
ahe said, opening tbe door, "Mister
Alan'll be very sorry that be refused
Widow McNee's honjle son."
"Ugbl Yo cAel, ftartless monster,
Mlstor Alanl" sbe exclaimed. "You
itbougbt nothing of sending my poor
Ud to s suicide's grave. So ypu turned op your fine nose at Ralph Mc
Neo?" she continued.
"Did you think I'd bava a mleMA,
tyil-looklng young -young rucal (pr
my lass?"'
, "pe'i a good enough lad," the widow returned. "I remember you sa a
young man, Mister Alan.. I remember tbe night tl Farmer Mackay's
party when tbe lamps want out, and
Someone kissed someone else so loud,
and, If you wish my mind of it, SO
clumsily, lbat even—''
"Hatbers. woman, Ull me what
you've come tor?" tuned the farmer,
purple.
"I've come to arrange tor my lad to
marry your lass."
TI» won'tl"
"Ob. yes, he wllll"
"I tall you be won'tl"
WUow McNee held up bar bands in
mock surprise. ,
"And you a man was married for
ten years, farmer, and you don't know
.tbat wben a woman says a thing It
will happen-well, It does happen!"
The farmer held open the door.
"I wish you'd go."
"You don't like me?" ahe laughed.
"You're doing no good, Mrs. Mo-
HM," ht said.
The widow rose wltb a little sigh.
"And Ralph no' sueh a poor match,
I'm thinking," eba said gently, as
though lo herself. . .•    _,
"Bib?" put ln Alan wlekly. TUe
waa talking, this wu store to tba
point.
"Well, he's got tha farm and a bon-
nie mother." She hesitated, and then:
"And, of .course, there ww hia Undo
Keaneth who died In New Zealand."
"His uncle?" asked Alan quickly.
"Ayl   Yon aw, Ralpb and I M"*

to give In to a woman.
Matters wire brought to a head by
his daughter's weeping snnouncomeot
that Widow McNee had forbidden her
son to continue tba engagement any
longer. It seemed tbat she bsd grown
tired, and that meant an end.ot It.
"She's never said tbat?" uked Alsn.
"Ay, and now there's no one to bin
ull" cried Margery. "Ye'ro a pair of
cruel old wretcneil"
Tbe farmer wu worried, not ao
much at tbe thought of bis daughter's
bleeding heart u Ralph's thousands.
He took bis daughter's band, and patted It gently.
"Never you mind, lassie," be said,
"you shall be married despite tbe old
woman."
Tbe girl cried aloud In ber surprise.
So farmer Alan aent for Ralpb to
consult with him.
"I'm doing It Just to spite the widow,
mind yo," said the farmer when the
astonished Ralpb had arrived. "Bul
you two halms must get married."
"We've your permission?" gupsd
tbp prospective bridegroom.
"On one condition.
"Eh?"
"Ii'n to be a secret wedding now,"
be replied. "If you keep It secret
from tbe widow, I'll help you and see
uo barm comes to you. Ab, that woman will be |ust mad!"
Ralph evidently shared bis opinion
with tbe farmer, and hesitated in bis
reply. Bul bo remembered bll mother's advlco about getting married ilml,

Ralph was sent home lo Inform tbe
vldow ol th'.- news, while Ihe farmer
vailed In anticipation ol hot' glorious
via.a,
She was rather more slaillcd than
thi I'wlse, aud went alrulgbt to Bee
Vlan. Ho met her ulono In his kit-
hen.
Viry pole, und, lor her, wondroualy
iciaous, she made ber confession.
"Mister AI.iii." ihe Bald, "I havo
been a very wicked woman."
"Wicked?" asked the farmer, pn.
ilcd.
"Yes. 1 buve deceived you moat
wickedly," she said, coming oul with
her confession In a ruBh. "I told you
that llalpb bad been loft a heap of
money.   It wus not true."
"Mot urn's
"No," sbe rushed on. "I did It to
make you agrco. I thought tbat you
would do It for the money."
The farmor colored deeply, aud for
a moment tbere wu an awkward
•Hence. Then, In a low volte, ho said:
"And I did so, you Iblnk?"
"No, no!" sbo oxclalmed. "I have
been a very wicked woman."
Alan stopped up to her.
"Do you kuow wby I did It?" he
uked, almost roughly.
"No." Her eyes were frigbtenod,
but bright.
"Hu that I could be rolatod to you."
"To mel   But I don't uudentand."
"Don't you I" he cried, and took ber

And tben, a Utile later, the Widow

"I think I understand now, dear,"
"You 6ught to," be laughed. "Ma

The mooting proved a vory short one
being but slightly ovor au bur in eos
siou when tho Board went into commit
too pf the whole.   <
After tho reading of the miuutes
of the previous meeting which woro approved, a communication from Mcssro.
Smith Bros, contractors for the Bidgeway school, waa read, in which they
notified llic Board that tbeir contract
for the schuul was now practically completed and asked that p further pay
ment be made them in connection with
same. It was unanimously docided to
pay them.» further ♦.'1,000 whicii would
leavo merely the usual 10 per cent,
which is roquired lo be withheld until
final acceptance was made, due them.

at their nun delivery ,as thoy bad been
given to understand lbat same had

mutter of fact had nol been done until

The resolution passed on lhe under

Mr. i'efry jokingly suggested Ibal lie

refused Ilie amendment as hardly ei
