'       Mr. Kdward Boss registered an epis-
,. tolatory kick against tho condition of
Ilie plecp of road botween 17th stroet
and Fell a venue.     Tho missive   was
Imiiileil ovor to tho board of works.,
t   j A letter also emauutod from Mr, ti.
9. Iluuie}', referring to his proporty,

be is renting to Mr. McMillan for stabling Ul"' wtjielf lias been  Hood ml  by
several inches of water,
r      Aid. Dick said ho bad not iced   it
jmself.   It was certainly flooded,    It
euld probably be easier to raise the
riding tban   to   build   a   culvert
..rough.
'Aid. Smith agreed.   The mul 1st, be
sid, certainly rcipiired attention
Tbe council, thcroforc, refcrrod it to
Mr. Hanes, the city engiueer.
Mr. slnnies P. Fell wroto in acknow
li.'dgmcnt of the council's letter re the
establishment of a militia corps in
North Vancouver. Mr. Fell intimated that be was writing (0 the staff
officer in Victoria asking him to como
over at bis earliest couvenienco to
iuspect tbo proposed site as it would
bave to meet witb his approval before
tbe Dominion government would adopt
ii fnr this purpose
Aid. Diss reminded the council tbat
tbey wero going to lake ihe bylaws up
011 Thursday night. He asked tho clprk
to look into the legal points of the
abovo matter and buve Ihepi in nfasli
ness for tbem. n-
The city engineer then reported
upon tbe recent washouts on Lonsdale
Avenuo. It had beon caused, he said,
V by tbe water coming into tbe city
from the district. Tbis, ho described,
as a "usual and periodical occurrence.". Tbe culverts were not constructed to Iako cure of tho large
amount of surplus wator. A consider
able portiou of the water which came
down on November 17th fouud its way
through tbo culverts which had been
constructed by the city, aud tho bal-
ance crossed tbe property of Mr. Wat
son, architect, and tbo proporty of Mr.
Armytago. It would coBt about $7(1(1
to repair tbo damage done to l.ons
dalo Avenue, and Mr. Hanej recommended that the district council bo
asked to bear tbe cost of same.
In answer to Aid. Dick, Mr. Hancs
said tbis estimate was for repairs to
Lonsdale Avenue ouly.
The subject was left over for discus-
I sion on Thursday night whon the ma
yor will probably be present.
1 Ut, Shophord thou read a letter from
tho H. Pi Trust Corporation, rolalive
to ferry nutters. Commencing witb
a reference to au interview with the
council yesterday morning, tlie letter
stated that tbe corporation bad considered the requests of the coinmltteo
to bave tbe following clauses:
"Tbe company shall be at liberty
to create any further mortgage or
chargo ranking pari passu wilh the
moneys hereby secured provided such
mortgage or charge Is guaranteed by
tbe Corporation of the Clt yof Nortb
Vancouvor, provided, however, tbat the
company shall uot be at liberty te
create auy further mortgage or charge
unless guarauleod by Ibe city without
the consent In writing of tbo trustees,"
Tbe letter coulluued lo tbo effect
that tbo corporation regretted, but
mey wero unable lo meet Ibe wishes or
tbs committee as tby cannot change
,the provisions of Ibe trust deed in nnj
manner without the consent in writing
tt all the holders of the original de
benturcs, "As we presume tbe de-
tares aro not all iu Ibe bands of
MO Wty, you will readily soe tbat
it would be neit, to impossible to obtain tbe consent of overy ono of Ihe
holders. Tbe best and ouly course to
pursue at< tbis timo is to follow tbo
lines laid down at tbe interview and
let tbe future look after Itself."
Aid, Dick moved tbat tho council
adjourn Into committee of tbe whole for
deliberation on this important matter.
Aid. Dick incidentally called attention to the satisfactory reduction of
tbe tie insurance basis rate from It

in
Qn Fridisy night Mayor T»yl»F wo*-
ed the Inlet and addressed a meeting
of North Vancouver citiseus in parson's Pavilion, Tke attendance was
good and the mayor had no occasion
to grumble at his reception.
"It is something unique," be said,
in his opening remarks, "Ipr I .'audi
date for any official position tp some
to Nortk Vancouver to look for aup
port, However it shows that wben a
political fight la on or a fight for any
civic ollice in. tbe future that thoae
who are earneet in their efforts tp be
elected will bave to turn their attention
to some extant to North Vancouver,
and this place will in future will be one
of tbo important places for candidates
for tbe city. Perhaps some time in tbe
future it will be more ao, beceuse we
ie ibat after the Second Narrows
hridge ia completed tbe people of this
city will be tired of municipal affairs
smi tbey will be glad to join us in a
greater Vancouver. Tbat might be, as
the newspaper boya say, a pipe dream
en niy part. However, I know tbat we
have a large number of voters ovor
here and 1 say that it is only right
tbet the candidate fpr tbe chief office
of the city should come here, especially
one who bu beld tbe office for any
length of time, to give a history of
hia administrations! affairs to those
wbo have an equal right io hear bim
personally as bave those on tbe other
side."
Tho mayor called attention te tke
fact that the Hecond Narrows bridge
constituted one of the first planks iu
bis platform when he first ran for tbe
mayoralty, and be thougbt tbere was
uutliing that waa going to be so heue
ll.'iul to the city of Vancouver and
tbe city of North Vancouver es tbat
bridge. Tbe mayor proceeded to deal
with tbe ijueatiou of municipally own
ed wharves and docks, and aaid that
iho combination of tke two would
bring shipping here. Tbe three
measures, therefore that bo was chief
|y advocating are the municipal docks
and wharves, tba building of tbe Dec
ond Narrows bridge and the construe
tion of tbe railway to tbe Peace Biver
District. On these mailers he bad uo
hesitancy in offering himself for tbe
position of meyor for the comiug
ycer.
The mayor, after deprecating tbe in
iriislu.'ti.in of party polities into tbe
campaign, referred to Ibe meeting of
the Hood Government League, and tbe
packing of tbe meeting, ami said tbat
was the reason why tbe league wai
uot taking any aide ia ihis campaign
Continuing, he said tbat Ibe same influences were working in Ward 4.
Uut Monday Captain McSpadden aaid
tbat as far as the ward wu concerned, they bad got to make ibis fight
a political one, but be wu happy to say
that the majority of Ihe members pre
seut differed with the Captain and disapproved of bia sentiments. "We
have," uid tba mayor, Alderman
King's own word for it lut night that
be wu told the fight wu to be on tbat
line, and bad replied tbat ha would
never consent to it. All these things
point to tbe fact Ibat an effort ia going
to be ri.Jii.lt- to do Ibis, and I poiut
oul because 1 want to be distinctly un
derslood tbat Wben any of thl papers
make a statement lhat the mayor of
Vancouver is tha man wbo is respon
aible for Ibis tbere is not a word ot
truth in it , ,t would be one of tbe
greatest disasters that tka city would
bave if parly polities got into il«
midst, end if everyone clung to party
lines. If we bad wanted lo run on
party linee lul yeer II could have been
done. But there wu no party poliliea
and never bu been end never will be
u long u I bave anything lo do wilk
tka city bail."
Sir. Aleiander Pbilip aaid it wuuld
ill become tkem if Ibey allowed lae
meeting lo close without passing a
hearty vote of thanks to Ihe mayor,
who had rendered aplendid service, aet
only to Ike older cily, but also to North
Vaueouver.

wheat fields aro strictly limited, Japan
lining a iniiuiitaiuouB country, and wo
are already importing wheat from tho
United States, India and other countries to tlm annual amount of three
to four million dollars. Wo get most
pf our wheat from thoUnitoil Statea
anil I nm surprised that Oanada is not
taking a bigger share pf this business.
As the oliler dauglitor of Great Britain, we look to Canada, said Mr. Vsda,
as a country not only to which we may
semi goods, but from which we may become largo purchasers of manufactured
and natural products.
Not ouly must Japan import a largo
part of thp wheat she roifuiren, but
she also needs great quantities of pspor
of which she Is now gulling from Norway, normany and other countries
one million dollars worth annually.
Thero are ever two thousand periodicals published in Japan, which con-
siime thousands of touB of paper ovory
day, the paper mills of Japan • cannot
supply half the quantity required.
Thoro is a largo trado to be douo,
too, liy Canadian manufacturers of machinery, hardware, cycles and cyelo

Have You Figured the Loss
From "Busy" Signals?
Suppose a customer is about to order something or
other over your telephone. The operator finds your
line or lines engaged. The customer mutt wait—or
order somewhere else. Maybe he chooses to wait—
calls again—again finds your line or lines busy,
if'hal means a possible loss of a customer.
The business man needs adequate telc-
pli'inr service for the accommodation of his
business and his customers. When you lose
customers through "busy" signals, it has
been proved lhat your telephone facilities
are inadequate.
People who get businctt make it easy for their customers lo get then) and have the number of telephone
lines their business requires. The number should be
determined by the amount of use at the BUSIEST
time of the day.

Tbe work accomplished during tbe
first portion of tlm present session of
tbs Dominion House, which adjourned
ou Thursday last for tbe holidays,
fully justifies all expectations which
were entertained, to the effect that an
administration led by Hon. B. h. Harden would be marked by efficiency,
energy ami straightforwardness. Tbe
new government was confronted hy the
difficulties innvarishly attendant upon
a momentous change of tbis nature, but
the cabinet manifested gratifying ability in arriving witb roadiuuss st a
working knowledge of the business of
the respective departments, a most
commendable promptitude In convening
tho legislature and a decided capacity
for 'transacting the business of the
country iu an expeditious manner as
seen in the amount of legislation which
the government had roady for the consideration of the house.
At this early date tho government
has given uiimistakealile evidenco of its
intention to carry out the program
ouliiucd by Mr. Borden in his maui
festo to the people, previous to tho
elections which returnod him to po
wer. The vexed question of tbe ex
tension of the boundaries of Manitoba
has been disposed of and all possible
friction botween that province and On
iiirio has been avoided witb respect to
the matter. Outstanding matters be
tween the Dominion and tbe province
of British I'.ilumliia have been consid
ered and an early and amicable ad
justnieut is in sight. Tbo appointment
of a permanent tariff commission bas
been foreshadowed. The determination
of Ihe government has been plainly declared, to deal with tbe navy question
in n thoroughgoing manner and to accord the Canadian people an opportunity to give direct expression to their
will in tbis most important departure
from a natioual standpoint.
One of the most important particu
lars, however, in which tbe government
has intimated ils policy, is witb re
sp.vt to the nationalisation of tbe ports
of  tbe  Dominion.   In   reply  to  Mr.
, Bickerdike, momher for Montreal, with
reference to the nationalization of that
port, Premier Borden replied "Tbe
government intends al tbe earliest possible opportunity, to make a thorough
study of the needs of all tbe Canadian
national ports," The probable viewpoint from which the government will
approach this great issue may be gathered from tbe words uttered by Hon.
t. D. Monk, minister of Public Works,
is committee of supply, to the effect
"That the country should Im prepared
to face the expenditure of at least
H00M0M9 for tbe development aod
the improvement of national fre« ports
on tbe Pacific and Atlantic coasts and
tbe great lakes." The momentous advantages to British Columbia which
would be involved in tbe prosecution of
a policy of the naiuro outlined, require
no elaboration.
Vancouver riding has every reason
, te be gratified at tbe excellent beginning made by the newly elected member, H. H. Stevens. Mr. Stevens lost
no time ia rising to the duties of the
'< responsible position which he occupies
aa representative of on* of the largest
aad most important constituencies io

exceptional merit, te tlw Hv» Issues

LONSDALE THEATRE
The opening of tbe newly completed
Lonsdalo Theatre, which took place
last evening, marks a distinct forward
step in tho important matter of local
houses of .'iilerliiinineiii. The structure
is of a class that is not excelled even
iu tbe largest cities in theatres of its
sire. Tbe internal arrangement is
thoroughly modern, and tho seating
plan is such that there is an unobntruct
ed view of the stage, whether from
the main floor, tho galleries or the box
es. It is quite accurate to say that
"there is not a poor scat in tho house"
It is the declared intention of tbe
management to put ou programmes of
a high order and to place tho theatre
in the foremost rank among iustitu
tiona of a similar order. Tbo presouce
of such a houso of entertainment will
fill a want that has been strongly felt
in tbis city, more especially of late,
and will denote another particular in
which tbe local public bave been put
mowing institutions across tbe Inlet,
the necessity for which practice now no
longer exists. The fact that "stand
ing room only" was the order at tbe
oponing performance lasl evening goes
to show tbat tbe local public appreciate
tbe privileges which the acquisition of
tbis now theatre extends to them and
foreshadows great popularity for tbe
venture The owners of the proporty
and the losses of the theatre are to be
highly commended for tbe enterprise
evidenced iu their undertaking and to
be complimented on the auspicious be
ginning which has been attained.

MAUBIOB    MAETERUNK    ON
DBATH
A London correspondent states that
in a very beautiful now essay Mr.
Maeterlinck writes of death, and in
the course of it ho enters an eloquent
plea against efforts to cxtoml life beyond its natural term.
"As science progresses," he says,
"it prolongs tho agony which is the
most dreadful moment, and tbo sharpest peak of human pain and horror,
for the witnesses, at least. All the
doctors consider it their first duty tp
protract as long as possible even tbo
most excruciating convuisious. Who
has uot, at a bedside, L'll times wished
lo throw himself at their feot and im
ploro-them to show mercy I"
One day, M. Maeterlinck believes,
this projudice will strike us as barbarian, as a relic of the times when
humanity was convinced thai any
kuuwn torture wu preferable to those
awaiting us in the unknown. Doctors defeud by pleading that there is
scarcely a case Ihut is utterly hopeless.
But tho majority of cases delayed, ran
"give but a few days, or, at the ut
most, a few months of a life that will
not be the real life, but much rather au
extended death."
On ono poiut doctors are beginning
fo yiebl. "Tbey arc slowly consenting
to deaden at least, the lull of the last
agouics." But still, many of them
hesitate, "and, like misers, measure
out drop by drop tbe .leniency and
peace whicii they ought to lavish." All
our knowleilge, therefore, only helps
us to die in greater pain than the animals that know nothing."
But a day will come, M. Maeterlinck
predicts, when science will no longer
heaitato to shorten our misfortunes
"when life, grown wiser, will depart
silently iu its hour, knowing that it
has readied its term," oven as it withdraws every evening, while wo sleep,
knowing that ils day's task is dono.

Tba New Metal According to IU Discoverer
Audrew Cordon French, formerly a
resident of Victoria, who stayed at
the Dominion hotel recently, says thu
Colonist, gave au account pf tbe discovery of cuna.liuin, tbe seventh metal
of the platinum group wbicb waa dia-
covered by bim laat April at tbe Granite Poormau mine at Nelson, ami has
since been tested in England,    New
Yprl and Pwver wHh tin bs*t Vnm
fpr results by (be disepysrsr,
. The new metal is white, it is tbe
Whitest pf at) "bite niotiils and pos
posses a ' fouling brilliance groatpr
than that pf tin, »ick|# or ailvar. I, ia
quite unaffected by tba damp nf uul
phurous vapors, and is suited for Has
at tba back pf reflectors fpr plfttiny
tablewaro and for many othur purposes
fpr which platinum is now mad,
Canadium is dearer (ban gold, said
Mr. French. A glass searchlight re
Hector, Iff inches in diametet, costs
♦40. These rofiactpra are popper piai
ed Witb palladium buruiibed, which
il net »s white as eauadium, and silver cannot be used because jt will tar-
nish, therefore, Mr. French says, tbore
ia a market fnr all tbe canadium tbat
can be fouml.
Canadium WM round in igneous
dykes extending over a aone or belt
at Nelson It miles wide. The reef was
traced two mllea, and in most case* is
from fi to SO feet wide. It is a metal
of tbe platinum group, and wu discovered while applying a new patent
process for catching *oat gold and
slimes at tbe Qrauite Ponrmau mine.
Uf. French discovered, while aauying
tbe slimes caught, that tbere were disturbances other tban regular gold in
tbp assay, and eventually traced these
to tbe Interference of platinum and
other minerals of tbat group. On separation- these be still found abuormal
behaviour. Tbe disturbance waa due
to an eutirely new metal, wbicb be
discovered to be tbe whitest of any
metal known aud named it Canadium,
It comes out, uid lir. French, iu
scales and crystals, three and four
ouuees to tbe ton. At first he thought
be bad found palladium, but the melt
iug point wu lar below tbat metal
and a little below silver and gold, lie
found the melting point In aauyiug
and obtaining a quantity, examined.its
properties separately witb tbe result
that tbe new metal wu discovered.
Mr. French is a woll kuowu mining
engineer and geologist, both iu Kuglund
and 1° Canada, He lived three years
in Victoria, and wu at tbat time connected witb tbe British Columbia Paint
