North Shore Delegation-
Visits Provincial Capital
Tlm executive council of lltu pruvin-
rjnl government received a delegation
of pruperty owners on llie Nortli Shore

iiini'iidiug net passed in Win.
Tlie following tiieniliers of tlie government were present: 'Sir ilii'liurd
iMiIlride, Hon. W. J. Bowser, Hon. Dr.
Voung, Hon. Tlioiuus Taylor, Hou.
I'riee Ellison and Hou. A. E. McPhil
Tlie delegation tiuiuliered upwarda of
sixty members auioug whom thc ladici
»en1 u,b represented. The official
spokesmen were as followi: Heovc
Mny, Alderman Foreman, Hcevc Nelson, Councillor Bridgman, J. W. Dou

t'ouiii'illor  1.1,nl.i.

opcuing the subject, Heeve May stated lliul the delegation was eompriied
l.v private citizens and liy represents
lives of the respective munieipal coun
uls and , ,i'ii. hodies of Ihe Notrtl
Shure. Thc Conservative excrutives of
Hie Nurlh Shore liad likewise endorsed
their mission. The members of thc
delegation were present ai citizens wbo
fell lbe heavy burden resting upou
Iiiiiii because of the laugled question
wlneh had developed with reference to
governmental claim to certain portion!
uf their proporty. The wheels of pro
gross were clogged, Ihc ainbitioiit of
pruperty owners were fettered and Ih*
entire districl was denied adequate

tioneer telegraphed to the govcriiineiit
anil tile government telegraphed back
that the government would withdraw
ill claim ao that the sale might go on.
This, hu regarded, aa a parallel case.
If Ihe government would withdraw ils
claim in Poiut drey, he saw no reason
why tbore ihould nut lie u similar with
flrawal iu I.yun Valley. The government
intercut in I.inn Vulley was oomparu
lively -mall anywuy, and lbe loss lu
Ihu liuieiniiii'iii wuuld nut lie serious.
Beeve Nelson, speuking I'ur Wust
Vaucuuver district, stated that property
owners in that district were not so
heavily affected ua weru those in
the ilislriet of North yuncouver, iuas
much as very lillle properly bad l.ecu
subdivided into luls. One uf the mosl
unfair featurei uf lbe present siluu
liuu, huwever, was illustrated by the
caae of tbe N.6. ', uf block Ullil. The
quarter in question was sold at u government sule al which the restrictions
were removed, und the rest wus sold
later, tlie restrictions being in full
force, lleeve Nelson reud extracts
from a memorial presented tu lue gov
eminent over une yeur ago, with refer
ence to the ijucsliuu at issue. Another
feature of lhe tangle was seen iu the
fact that people have gune lu the re-
giatry office aud received n certillcate
showing thut a certain panel uf bind
wai clear, and ii hud afterwards de
veloped that it was nol clear because
of the government '» reversionary righli.

district which waa atill under tne ban

Gold Bearing Reef
Discovered in
First general intimation was yesler
lay received that a gold bearing reef
had been discovered by Mesara. (1. C.
Walker and il. Smith at Capilauo ubuut
a month ago ami thai the claim had
been duly stuked und registered.
i'lie reef runs, us fur as can lie ul
present judged, norlh uud south alongside the uu" tunnel which ia being
Iriven for the Vuncouver city water
supply main, and was located through
the ' "i'i i, ull being exposed by a shot
Iired when the tunnel wus driven about
lllll feel. A sample v.iis laden ami au
assay ubtuitied which showed guid to
the value of H per ton uud silver.
Yesterday morning u parly consisting uf Messrs. (J. 0. Wulker, M. t'nnip
bell, W. Sinilh, VV. II. Campbell, .1.
I'aullield and T. lluwe went uul tu
Capilauo to inspect lhe Und which bus
nuw heen furtber opened up showing
thi' reef to the width of two feel with
uut pressure uf tbe hanging wall The
party considered tbe present indications as extremely satisfactory, ami
llic loculors announced their intention
uf putting in a cross cut to ascertain
the full width uf the reef ami the prospective body of ore at the face work
ing. Afler considerable haminer ami
drill wurk a lurge sample of the ore
was brought  buck  lo the city  whicii
being heavily mineralized, will be forwarded for treatment. A piece ufthe
ore wos dollied uud panned by Mr. J.
Cuillllebl und showed free gold, A
small prospecting compuny is being or
gunized with the object of developing
the lode without deluy, uud on the
results uf this development will rest
the future action  of llu.' cumputiy.
The discovery uf the reef wus purely
accidental and fortunate. It appears
that Messrs. Smith uud Walker rceeiveil instruction:! from a city mining "i'u, ulaii.i to pi-;: out a claim al
the workings near Ihe city waterworks
intake and on going lo thul locality
being under llie Impression Ihut a luu
nel wus being driven, usked the dircc
tion of the work and wus informed
tbut the tunnel wus being put through
the puint at the secoud canyon. Then
they went buck and pegged the claim,
On entering the tunnel tbey proceed

informed thut they hud pegged the

A close observer of the progress uf
events at the ineeling of tbe delegation
of the Nortb Bhore with the Premier
and members of the executive council
« at Victoria last week to present  the
caae of Ibe property owners with reference to tbe possible reversiouary rights

conference would prove salisfactury tu
all property holdurs who taku a reason

That tbe government considered the
occasion oue of considerable moment
wae indicated liy the fact that there
was a full iiiieinluniv uf all available
membera of the cabinet. The close at

his eoiieagues followed Ihe remarks, of
the respective speakers was readily ap

questions which they interposed from
time to time. The straightforward ami

ilently appealed tu Hir Itichanl Mr

The , .nn |>IiiiiiiiI ;ii v terms iu which the

The Premier proceeded however,, to

the fact tbat exceptional cases might
arise in working out the terms of the

I To the Publlct- i
As President of the Board uf Trade
of New Westminister, I became inter
ested in tbo plans of tho Dominion
Match Co., Ltd. After thoroughly investigating aud familiarising myself
with tho sound, economic basis uf Ihu
Parker process of mailing ^matches, I
Inn unu a considerable stockholder, believing the now in,In dn to bo a solid
busiuuss iitvestpietil capaliln of naming attractive dividends.
The factory is buing orectod at New
Westminster, on a site served directly
by the C. P. H. and Oreal Nurlberu
railways aud the B. C Kleclric Cm,
therefore uueu,ualliM in transportation
facilities. -
Mayur John A. Lee of New West-
minster is also a director of Ihis com
pany, and all stockholders muy feel
sure of the honest uml capable .handling uf tlte compauy's interests, us
all directors have been selected for
thoir integrity and business capacity.
I feel quite justified in recommending the Dominion Match t'o. stock as
a good investment ami one which I be
lieve will in the future have u value
many times its present price.
President   New   Westminster
Hourd nf Trade.
The' aliovPfchQlograpli o( [)te Dominion Match Company's lirsl plant speaks for ilself. Tlte factory it lervcd direct liy ihc C. P. R, Greal Northern and B. C. Electric, therefore ii unequalled for lianspoilalion facilities.
The BrunctlKPfo(*<ottit1i can be seen, serves as a logging pond. Who can doubl bul what lins company will be a greal sucresi and make money tear after year for those wbo have lbe courage lo back tlieir convictions
wilb a little money? Lei these fads convince you ibal the Dominion Malch Company, Limited, olfeis an investment ibal is really worth while: Canada consumes over 8 carloads of matches per day. Today Canada
is importing matches (torn Japan and Sweden, notwithstanding a duly of 25 per cent., which is equal lo $1.00 per case. The nearest match factory in Canada is Hull, in lbe Province of Quebec. Lddy ol Ilull lias
made a fortune for himself and associates fiom lbc manufacture ol matches, and yet lhe syslem used by bim calls for while cork pine al $90 per ibousand led, and a great deal ol band labor. The syslem used by lbe
Dominion Malch Company calls for alder, basswood, collonwood, or any wood ibal will veneer or absorb paraHine. The cosl is aboul $5 per thousand. This syslem of machinery also save* 50 pel eenl. of lbe band
labor. In brief, the Dominion Match Company lias aboul $(i()ll a carload lbc advantage of any other manufacture in Canada. The Company ian make over $1,400 nel prohl per carload. The (aclory has a capacity
of one car per day, therefore, counting illl) work days, il can cant aboul $420,000 per annum, which ii equal lo 42 per eenl. on $1.1100.000. wbicb is lbe capitalisation of the company. Docs ibis uul sound good?
Would you nol like Io have some of your money invested in an industry thai ts not effected by crop failure or panics? This is youi opportunity. Wbal are you going lo do wilb il? Stand back aud doubl and say, as
90 per cent, of lbe people do, 1 don'l believe il will ever amount lu anything and linn wake up lo lbe fad lhal you have lost oul? I he cnmpany is . ilm ml by men you know and can liuil, men lhal stand In. li in
iheir own community, Ibere will be no enormous salaries paid lo llic officers, nor no freezing oul of small stockholders. Remember, you arc buying inlu the parent company, and investors will share in 50 pel cent, ol
lhe three olber plants which will be established in lbc eastern provinces. ( orne lo our branch oflice, where we have one of out wonderful malch culling machines working. Come and Id oui salesmen show you the
reports of the enormous dividends being paid liy olber match concerns. No mailer wbal your neighbor (wbo is undoubtedly a knocker, anyway) may say, come and investigate lor youtself. The factory will be
running and turning out matches in aboul 'HI days. Russell Sage t|uolcd In make money you muil do so on your own judgment. Ihc man wbo hesitates either has lo pay a premium lo the man wbo docs act or be loses
lbc opportunity for ever.   Don't lei ibis be your case.   If our salesmen call on'you give ihem a few moments of your lime.    I l.cy will malt: you some money.    Vou don'l have to invest.    Use punt .ini judgment.
