Mr. H. L. Keid, laat night ludited a
letter to the city cuuucil statiug that
he hail chaugud his upiiiiou as to the
right uf Imu ' imb1.1 tu be pluccil un
the voters' list iu Ihe city of Norlli
Vuncuuver.
"The act,'' wrote Mr. Keid, "contemplates only lbe condition Hint lliere

und dues uut seem tu cuusider thul Ihere

Tbe clork was initrucled, upon tbs
reutiliig of Ibii lutter, to go shosd with
the prepsrstion of tlie voters' list in
inu iiniiiiiic with the solicitor'a opinion as expressed ubove.
The opinion previously voiced by
Mr. Hci'l is uutomatlcally cancelled.
According to Charles Dickens, mistakes
ure likely to occur in thc best regulated fumilies, and certainly some mis
pronouncement of opinion is very psr-
iliiuuhlu when tbe municipal election
set is immediately concerned. The «
unly unfortunate sequenco of tbia little

MOUK INDIAN BBBBBVB
It il difficult to uinliirslaiiil why
there ihould be any delsy upon tbe
imii of the department of tbe Dominion government concerned in iiiuing
to the district of Nortb Vsucouver,
the title to the wster lot, in front of
the atreet end recently purchased by. tbe
di.triet from tbe government, out of
Heymour Indiuu reserve.
The fads are ss followa: In order
to uiiiiilii s l.n ui inn suitable for s ferry
wharf to serve tbat portion of tbe
municipality, tbe district negotiated
for a atrip of laud sixty six feet in
width, running through tbe reserve,
from the waterfrout on thc south to
Keith road ou tbe north. Tbe price
agreed upon and paid in cash was
(6,150, in whicii sum wa. included $500
for the improvements which had been
made tu the proporty. ln making application for a water lot in front of
the property purchased, tbe diitrict
endeavored to obtaiu title lo live hundred feel for municipal purposes, instead of merely the sixty-six feet, to
which they were eutitled as owners. A
reply was received tu the effect tbat
the Indians had been consulted aud
lhat Ihey demauded $125 per frout
in.it for lhe riparian rights. The cuuucil then advised tbe Department that
Ihey would ..inline their application
to the sixty-six feet wbicb pertained
lo the property of which they were tbe
owners; wberoupuu the department in
funned the council tbat au additional
price must be paid for even the water
lot iu frout of tbe street eud ami Ibat
if til!.1) per foot was considered too
high a price and tbe Indians could
not be prevailed upon to accept a low
er figure, the ouly recourse would be
In arbitrate the matter.
There are doubtless subtle legal
|u,min involved iu tbe ijuestiuu uf
the rights of the Indians in the lands
occupied by tbem a. reserves, which
laymen iu such matters are not iu po
sit ion to discuss intelligently, but it is
reasonable lo conclude tbat these were
in uo sense involved iu the situation
under discussiou, but tbat tbe whole
matter might justly be disposed of by
issuing a crown grant for the water
lot iu front of the atreel end.
Were the matter one of disposing
uf a i...ii.iiii of an linlisn reserve or of
riparian rights iu frout of a portiou of
un Indies reserve, to certain individuals
fnr their personal use, theu the whole
transaction might consistently be called
iu question unless indeed the transaction were carried out ill a manner
which gave ali parties eijua! opportunity to obtain tbe concession upon a
hasis applicable to all alike. Tbis, how
ever, is an instauce in which the people
as such desire certain concessions for
public purposes aud fur public purposes
only, namely for a public street and for
a public wbarf. The lituatiou aa it
stands, therefore, presents ou a small
scale those features of tbo situation
relative to ludiaa reserves, which cause
theic reiervei to become a barrier to
the progress aud tbe development of the
weit and a menace to tbe intereiti of
ihe Canadian people.. Wheu thc reicr
vationi were made originally, it was
impossible to foresee tbat such a situa
tion would develop, but now tbat it
bas arisen tbe reserves should be made
to give way to tbe interest, of the
people, evtry care being exerciicd at the
iame time to provide for the ludiaa
population iu a suitable msuuer. In
being psid tbe ium of »5,I50 for their
rigbti iu tbe laud and for tbeir iin
provement. in tbi. instance, tbe Indium
have been dealt witb very generously
by tbe municipality, and the endeavor
to exact a further ium of mouey for
riparian rigbU, il (imply «n imposition
wbicb the people cannot but resent
and ia, SI the member for tbi. constituency bs. informed tbs department
"preposterous." Tbe flagrant nature
of tbi. demand i. apparent wben the
further facta are stated, namely tbat
the reserve iu question contain, ap
proximately two hundred acre, having
a waterfrontage on Burrird lulet of
over one mile, tbe whole of wbicb ia
actually occupied by only three or four
Indian families.
It is to be hoped not only tbat the
Department will Issue s erown great of
Ihi. water lot to the municipality without further exactions or delay, but
alio that the negotiation, sew proceed-
' ing between she Peoinies and the
proyladsl governments with reference
to tbs Utle of the Indians in ths lands
occupied ae reserves (Mad wbleh U is
understood will among Other mailers,
be furtber discussed during tbe present
vi.it of Pfemier McBride snd Attorney
(Itinera) Bowser, st Ottawa) will be
brought to sn ssrly snd ustiifsclory
conclusion sud tbst us s result il will
be no longer possible for tbe presence
of theae reserve, to obstruct the pro
grew and development of tbe province.

BIA  ENTBBPBISB
The British Colunibis Electric Ilml
wsy Company Limited has recently is
sued a highly artistic ami copiously
illustrated brochure, descriptive of the
progress of the Company: since its
iiicnrpuratioii with the extension of its
business snd its future prospects.
Tbe Compsny waa incorporated in
It'll and took over tbe operation of
public utilities iu tbe form of light
and power plants auil street railway
systems at Vancouver, Victoria and
New Westminster. Since tbat time tbe
developmeut of tbe business of the
Company has been of p remarkable ua
ture. In 1897 the capital iuvested
was $8,700,000, while today it is $80,-
01)11,11110, tbe gross annual income was
$.118,721, it is now $5,855,700; at tbat
time tbere wore iu service 28,008
lamps, there are now 707,000; in 1897
the compauy owned and operated 40
miles of tramline, which has beeu in
creased lo 20'J mile., tbe number of
cars iu service was 50 and it is uow
700. l'asseogern carried in 1897 numbered 11,654,300 and last year the uumber totalled 80,56:1,300. The gas mains
iu 1897 aggregated 36 miles ami iu
1911 139 miles ami the number of
connections increased from 2,258 to
14,760.
Au estimate of tbe part ployed by
the company in the progress of tbe
province sioce 1697 is expressed iu the
following M-nleii'.'s:
"The progressive policy outlined
"by Ihe Compauy upou its entering
"the territory lias marked it. car
"eer throughout the entire fifteen
"yean of it. hi.lory. Stop by step
"it bas kept pace witb the phenom
"eual development of its field, con
"stantly acquiring uew interests,
"constructing greet power plaut., ex-
"tending tramlines throughout ur-
"ban and suburban ceot{el ami link
"ing it. field together from end to
"end by a system of interurbau
"lines, providing light and power
"service through the extension of (ts
"wires as tbe march of settlement
"moved ouward and industrial ueedi
"developed, etc., etc. II may truth
"fully lie said tbat no history of the
"development of British Columbia
"during recent years cau be written
"without ascribing considerable ere
"dit to tbe Britiih Columbia Klectric
"Kuilwsy Company Limited, whose
"farsightcd policy and liberal ex
"peinlilures at a time wbeu tbe pro
"vises wa. but little known did
"much to bring about the prosperous
"condition of affairs which uowVx
"ills witbiu it. Hounds."
A. for tbe future tbe statement is
made tbat the company bas "well de.
ieloped extensiou plaus covering years
to conic."
A record tucb as tbat aubinitted by
tbe Britiih Columbia Klectric Ksiiway
Company, while it culls for encouiumi
rtlic euergy and the onterpriie of
Company a. well as tbe capa
bilily of tbe management, muit like
wi.-e reflect credit upon the province
wboie prosperity and development ba.
preiented su opportuuity for the at
Lining of iuch prosperity upon tbe part
of the company.
The population of tbe Nortb Shore
will indulge in the hope tbat the'' well
developed extension plana" in ponies
liou of the Company include tbe ex-
tendon of the wettern local branch
at least a* far as Hollyburn, in the im
mediate future and tho construction of
other new mileage tucb as will not
merely follow the course of settlement,
but will do somewhat better than that
by anticipating to seme degree the
actual incoming of population, to the
various localities on tbi. side'of the
Inlet.

The department is slso cutering lo
thc needs of tbe people iu the rapid ex
tension uf Ihe rural mail delivery
scheme. By au act passed last sessiuu
a superintendent wus appuinted over
the rural mail delivery branch. His
wurk was to specialize on that branch
of the Iie|.;,iinn-ill '. work. This has
been mi.uu .'.ml ami beginning wilh Nu
vembcr of the present year, the rural
mail carriers will be equipped with a
supply uf poslal urders and slumps aud
authorized tu take registered letters so
tbat iiei|i:i ut visits ou the part of tbe
inhabitants to the post offices iu outlying districts will be unnecessary, witb
a consequent saving uf time and labur.
The result will be a former rural mail

I Too know, desr, tbst nowsdsys

There srs some tones tbat stay In, foe
Instance, somber colors for general

spring suits, regular Easter dsy pa-
rude effects. Psle lavender wss am
nt tbe leading colors, snd If tbut Isn't
s reel Busier color I don't know wbst
Is. Pearl gray cars were much In
evidence, but tbe swsgger Gsster
frocks will go In the sll white snd
cresm cars. 1 never ssw so msny of
tbem before, especially In limousines.
But If 1 wero going to buy s nsw
auto 1 should bo tempted to purcbaae
s very dark violet machine. This color It shown In a number of makes
sud bas replaced In my affections ths
dark buoter's greens tbat ars slso well
played up. Tbe emersldt snd light
gruss greeue, scarlets and crushed
raspberries and Ibe other light ones
are too brlgbt for my taste, but I wu
fold tbat tbey would be sil ths rsge.
Imagine having lo live up to s ulmon
tinted motor, though, or s cerise or s
vivid greenl For you know It It ibo
proper caper to get your motor In ons
of tbe fusblonnblo shades flrst snd
choose your coats nnd veils to match.
Tbli vagary is possible only for
persons wbo cou afford s car every
year or so. Indeed, you would wsnt
ouo a monlb for aucb cspriclousness.
I've Just (bought of s scheme for the
"don't know whut to do wltb their
money" outolsts. Ut tbem bsvs s regular seasonable procession of cars.
Let's see in January a snow whits
would be appropriate. I think s dark .
red ono would feel cozy In February,
and Ibe gray days of March would
suggest a dull gray motor. For April
and Easier, as 1 tald, there would bs
tho gay lu verniers. Tben in May oss
of those crushed strawberry effects
would come In nicely wilb the esrly
berries, and a real American Beauty
red would do well for the montb of
roses. For patrloUc July there mlgbi
tio s blue .ur M io Is fosblonsbls—
wltb s border line of red snd s monogram In while-the national colors, you
see. In reel summer weather, In August, s cool vaullla les cream would
be cboseu -thut Is exactly what one
cer looked like. For September days,
wben lenve.'i begin to turn brown, one
of those toft brown motors would do
tnd for October tbe purple tone would
be most appropriate. Tbere Is s regular pumpklu yellow ihut u hideous
but modish Ibst could lit In for November end Thanksgiving day, snd.
Anally, In December a deep holly green
wltb trlmulngt of red would carry s
suggestion of Christinas. Then next
year thero would be a new gamut of
colors from which to make s selecUon.
But to bo serious and to change tbs
subject, wby don't you bavo a white
elephant party tho next Ume you entertain lbe oniuscniont club! This
slcpbant parly Ib tbe latest lu soclsl

But Jem did not die. He did not
belong to that class of whom it is ssid
tbey die young becspee llie gods |pye
tbem. lo tbe course pf an hour ur twu
lie awuke from his stupor, uin) although
wegk Slid groggy oil bit pins, at ho
lijiiisnlf eipressed il, and bruised und
bettered shunt the Out, smi with huth
eyes nesrly closed, be resumed bis du
ties. Strange ss it may appear, he
emerged from the ordeal a cbunged
man. From the hour thst Power ud
ministered the drubbing s great refer
million set in. Bvery truce of rultian
ism had ou, ed out through his wounds
snd in plsce nf tht bully whom every
one feared sud listed, there stood s
polite snd decent nisii wboie inunners
were almusl obsequious and who never
again was known to browbeat or insult
n cu. iinner. Women, children and degi
were tlio especial objects of bis kind
attentions. Wben he weighed a piece
of meal he did not follow bis former
practice of weighing bia heavy hand
witb it, hut gave good measure, heap
ud up and running over. To Mrs. Bur
roughs be was more than kind, sending
her the choicest bits ami forgetting tu
charge them ou the books. As for Me
I'ui nuiii, be sent for him and told him
that his dug would be fed daily il lie
wuul.l only let bim como to tlie shop
I'ei'i'l' wlm used tu address him as
"Mister" Mclaughlin gut lu address
iug bim as Mclaughlin, ami dually
they lapsed iulu the greater familiar
ily of "Mae" ami "Jem." He re
ceil e.l.all Ihese ul lent inns wuh smiles
of approval and happiness; but the
strangest psrt uf the affair was that he
never by auy chance referred to the
pounding he had received at tbe hands
of I'ower. Asked how be received the
injuries oiNlie face he would attribute
them tu ruuning against a side uf licet
in the dark. Ilis memory of thst eveul
seemed a blank. Ail tbat he knew was
lhat he hail been hurt, he believed, by
accident, ami that was all there was
tu be said. Hut the reformation wai
must marked, and so loug as 1 knew
him afterward he continued a steady
ami exemplar member of the eommuii
ity. He ' neither drank, gambled nor
swore. "Hoy," be remarked to oue of
his old companions, "I've drunk my
lust drink and I 'in guing to save my
money from Ihis time on forevi-nnorr
till Kiiigiluiu ".iih u, don't tempt me.
for I won't go." He was suspected .of
harboring matrimonial designs toward
a woman who kept a restaurant on tbe
liat, bul al she had tbe iuconveiiieui
encumbrance of a husband still living,
ami told him so, the courtship came lo
naught Wheu Kev. Klicne/cr Bullion,
the first Methodist missiousry, paddled
and poled his way in a canoe lo Yale
in Im'.'.i. Mclaughlin gave him the glad
hand, aud attended his first sermon on
a Sunday iiiorujng ami joined in sing
ing lhe hyiiini, "Fur you kuow," be
explained, "1 used lu belong lu a choir
when I was a young fellow back in
Maine."
■ There were tad days iu slorc for the
Utile Hugh li woman in the tent down
ou Ihc hur Mho was 'jesliued to have
a greal heart trouble, ami looking U. I.
as I write through all the years thai
have lapsed since theu I conjure up
her frail ligure as 1 last saw jt, with
her dear little ones clow pressed to her
brea.il and calling on Cod to protect

forget.   Hul I must uut anticipate.
Out- stormy aflcruouii a miner came

a stranger on bis wsy down the river
Irail had shot himself in Ihe thigh
uiul.- iliiiiliing over a tree that had
fallen across the pslb. Tbe trigger
caught on a (wig aud tbe charge exploded. A doctor was procured and
accompanied ibe man back to Bailor
Bar. Wbeu tbey reached tbere Ibe
stranger was .lead—having hied to
death. The doctor, after pronouncing
the man to be dead, asked if be bad any
effects. Borne letters and a bag of
gold dust weighing over Hon were
im a. led to bim. Evory miuer'i cabin
was provided witb a pair of gold scales
for weighing dust, snd from the purse
Ihe doctor weighed oul (15(1 as hit

and the balance remaining in the bag
to Vuh-, and banded tbem to tbe author

'' ('huries Burroughs, Ly11ou,'' aud bore
the Yale postmark. Hid anyone know

a person; but Jew Mclaughlin, who
joined s group of men who bad gathered to discuss tbe tragedy, suggested
that Mrs. Burroughs migbt know the

Bhe died ouly the ether day at su sd;

nmi he sure thst they performed tbe
duly gently and slier the niuiiner of

the man, "Tbe Qiri 1 Left Behind

slun'  when  tbe  death-blow  came."
Little more remains tu be told, Mrs.
Burroughs had thc budy brought tu
Yale and interred iu the little cemetery
Dear uid John Kurtz read thc funeral
service, ami Hugh Nelsou, William
i'ower, Jem Mclaughlin ami I led tbe
pallbearers. At the grave tbe widow
knelt, and with her children pressed to
her I.u-nin engaged iu hiIfii( prayer,
while we all drew back and gazed reverently at the affecting scene. Wheu
she rose Jem Mclaughliii respectfully
ami humbly came forward and took a
child in each lluud, while i'uwer offered
his arm lo the afflicted womsn. We
then formed a iitlie procession and
marched .lown tbe bill to Mrs. Felker's,
where comfortable ijuartor. had been
prepared for tbe family. The following
week Ihey went away tu their friends
iu li'alifornia, ami Yale knew them uo
more.

laugbliii permanent 1 l do not know
I hope that it was, for at the. boltoni
he was a good sort and capable uf
noble actions. Let us trusl that he
uever relapsed into evil ..ur. ami
that, as he must have long since gone
the way of all flegh, he continued lu
grow in grace until wheu the end came
e won a starry crown.
Wheat ii Moving With
Record Speed
Blocksds This Year Unlikely
Government's Efforts to Provide Ade
quale Facilities for Transportation
of Wheat Crops Meeting with Harked Success.
If there is a western gram blockade
Ibis year il will uut lie llirough lack
of effort ou the pun of the government to prevent it However, at pre
sent the prospects arc bright that the
western grain will be all moved to
utarkel without any serious tie-up. The
wheal was a lillle slow starling to
move, but official figures show that il is
now going forward at a record rate
and the prospects are that by lhe close
of navigation fully double the amount
hai.ui. .i last year at Ibe same period,
will have como cast by waler.' Tbe
grain is «t m exceptionally high tjuul
ity.

Hou. Bobert. Kogers, Minister of the
Interior, has been workiug all sum
met on a plau to bave the period of na
vigatiou extended for a month and has
bad many interviews with shipping and
insurauce men last week he bad a
conference wilh H. P. Hale, of the Mon
treal Board of Trade aud representative
of large insurance iutercsts, sud the
prospect il that arrangements will be
made for an extension of the period of
navigation.
Aids te Navigation.
If Mr. Kogers succeeds in thit it will
be a great boon to the western fsruier
aa it will mean tbat much more grain
will be moved before sole reliance will
have to Iw placed ou the railways- The
Marine Department baa already made
arrangements i'or iee breakers at V'
William snd i'orl Arthur to keep the
herbon open to tbe latest possible
dslcs. All possible aids to navigation
bave bean arranged aud additional
Jigbts have, been placed at Georgian
Bay ports.

New Uis for Forest Bittrvit
Interior Department After Buccetsful
Experiment Now Working out General Scheme.
The foreitry branch of thc depart
imui of tho Interior is developing u
plan to make Iho western foresl reserves of more real benefit lo the general public Hitherto the reserves have
been timber reserves pure and simple;
llio new plan is to make them pluy
gr»!Wds us well for the people of llio
west. A new brunch hus beeu formed
which might be termed "The National
Playgrounds Bureau." In brief the
scheme is to establish summer resorts
uml picnic and outing camps in the
various western reserves. ,
The lirst experiment was made this
summer ou the Turtle Minimum reserve in Southern Multiloba and proved highly successful. A resort was
laid out on Lake Mas, nol far from
lioissevain, where for several years
campers have lieen going, lliough wilh
out recognises1 rights. Now the sile has
been laid out into lots and leuscs arc
given under certain easy conditions.
The lessee must build a substantial
summer cottage. The plun was very
popular aud already many leases have
heeu taken uud uext summer there pro
mines lu be a rush for lots.
Others Doming
Already applications lo have resorts
established at several other reserves
have been received by the department,
and the plan will now be made gen
tl),
This coming year will see the establishment of a lurge number of new
rcierves. The lurgcsl is in the vicinity of Lester Slave Lake in Northern
Alberta anil will comprise some 4,0(10
■i'uii■■ miles. .Several new reserves
have been recommended in northern
Saskatchewan, while survey parties are
working in south eastern Manitoba
with a view to the loealiun of a new
reserve there.

WALKING FOB NEBVES
The nerves suffer from want of pure
oxygen. They run like a network all
through the skin, and when they are
overwrought the skin is apt lo be dry
aud colorless. Walking is an excellent
tonic for the nerves It gives Ihem
strength to control themselves.
Jf one ha* means or leisure there are
plenty of other more enjoyable exer
cist's. But few forms arc so beneficial
as the regular daily jaunt of four or
