Thii reeeinnicii,latum canto formally
befure lbc city fathers hist eveuiug
Aid. irwiu, cbainnau of Ibe finance
commillee, explained that in Ibe opiu
ion pf the committee it waa time Ibat
sume Mich initial step ibould be taken,
sin,,' Ibere migbt be certain would be
tenderer! now absent from Ibe city,
fui wbuse beuefil |,ul,Inuii,,n uf ibis
invitation to tender would have lo be
atteuded to at au early dale. In
addition lo fkc ordinary luhmiisiou uf
pieces of pruperty at a ijiecilicd price,
tenderers, Aid. Irwin believed, ibujld
be allowed to execute an option to the
cily. After the tenders had been re
ceivcil, tbe alderman thought it would
be a desirable course lo employ expert
opinion iu order to get the views of
some oue thoroughly well posted iu
Ihe milter of cily bill sites.      *
Aid. Irwiu alsu mcutioued the id
visibility of tbe city taking ionic steps
lo co operate witb lbc provincial aud
Dominion governments, uoi only lo
provide Nortb Vancouver wilh a build
iug for city ball purpose*, but possibly
t cuurt house and provincial and Do
miuiou buildings. If Ibe intereiti
uf tbe cily were to lie conserved Ibis
wai a problem wbicb musl be grappl
e,l witb in tbe belt possible wty.
Aid. Dick couiidcred tbe step wis
somewhat premature. He would bave
rather bad a conference take place wilb
the board of icbool truilcei in regtrd
to the present scbool on Chesterfield
Avenue. Thit could be converted iuto
t cily bill wbicb would fulfil thai pur
pose for eight or leu yetts. Tbere were
grounds there tbat wuuld lie suitable
to the purpoie for ill time. Aid. Dick
pointed oul tbtl io tny cue tbe unices were liking for another aod i
larger ichool site. Ueferriog to Aid.
Irwiu 'i illuiiost lo Ihe provinclil ind
Domiuiuu government!, Aid. Dick de
elired tbit if tbey bid to wiit ai long
for Ihe government'■ cooperation ai
Ibey bid lo wiit for Ibeir money Ibey
would be t long time wailing for their
advice. Tbe alderman further argued
that Ibe preient cily hall site wu nol
sold until thc money was received for
it, and to far not a eenl had, been received. "I'i ui do tbese things ou
our uwn iuitittive," urged Aid. Dick,;
Hiding Ihlt be did uul think it would!
be ne., ■ my to iill iu expert opinion.:
"If Ibe include!., pf Ibis cuuucil irei
nol expert! ou North Viucouver, iluy
bive no right to be silting here."
Aid. Bins thought the recommeudt
lion t good one.
top Ibst action on the lines suggested
would be in any way ubligatury.
Eventually, tbo first portion uf tbo
limine,- , uniiiiii Ice's rcciiiniiicuiliiliun
was formally submitted and wgs carried
Aid. Dick recording a dissentient vote.
During thc last few weeks the civic
correspondence has included almoit ai
every1 icssiuu „i thu cuuucil au offer
or offers of proporty luitablu in tboii
owuer'i opinion, for city hsll purposes.
At Ibe instance of Aid. Dick the pricus
at which Ihese fols have been offered
bave beeu withheld from pulilicutiuu
iu view of the fact lhat llio ptibiica
tiou of lhc priees would lie utiluir tu
lbe tenderers ami might huve an effect
upou the lenderiiig wheu plllcislly call
td for by Ihe council. This cuursc was
adopted liy Ihe council last eveuing
wben one more offer of a STte was re
ccived from a local properly owner.

SmaD Fruit Culture
A very vuluublu paper on tbe rulliiri'
uf smail fruits was read by Vf. W. T.
Matonii, the Dominion HOftl^ltDflst
last winter, before the Senate commit
tee on agriculture uud forestry. This
paper,  whieh  constitutes a pamphlet
pf thirty live pnges, is un exhaustive
trestise, expressed in pluiuust terms on
culture of smir-li fruits- Tlw fruits
dealt with sre the strawberry, raspberry, guiiHcliurry, blackberry Slid several Cissies Of currnniu, sll of    which
csn resdlly be cultivated in a limine
garden of small diijieusiuns ami therefore should prove of iuterest ami benefit to many resideutii of a community
such as the Norlh Shore. Mr. Mu
cuuu takes the pusi/iou that the failure
of many whu occupy laud to grow au
iiinm.lutice of smsll fruits, at least fur
thoir own use, is, due to a mistaken
idea that it requires tou much time lu
look after tho g»r\u and be deals
clearly with this ar well with muny
other phases of thc subject.
This pamphlet contains uu interesting table ou the coat ot growing and
the returns frum an acre uf strawber
ries. At a selling value of five cents
per bos, a net profit uf eighty-four del
lars is shown. A section is duvutcd
lu tbu prcparatiutt and applicaliun uf
insecticides and 'fungicides that are
useful iu fruit gruwiug. Having the
im uiiiuil mn of this paper to guide him,
there is iiu guod reason why every farmer should uut have a productive fruit
garden. A large edition has been
printed tu be seul free lo all whn apply
tu lhe I'ui'ii.iiimn- Branch, Department
of Agriculture, Ottawa.
The pamphlet is su exceedingly apt
iu ils bearing upuu a cumtuuiiily sueh
as Ihe Nurth Sburu thai it shuuld lie
given very extensive circulutinn lucully
itt Ihe hope Ihut its iufurmutiun may
encourage numberi of uur residents lu
cultivate these small fruits.
