tuwu in the endeavor to expedite tho
approval of the bridge plans hy the
Department>pt Public Works. Ac-
riirilitig In Mr. i'lu.i Inn.I '■• roport, tbe
chief cause of (leluy nt prcsont is the
furl that thc rcpurl forwarded hy thc
rsaiiloiil governmeut onginoer at New
\\. 11111ii:j.1 uus not sufficiently com
probspsive In answer thu purposes of
tlio department. The report recom-
iiieinlcil Ihul u spun of --.'> fed he
approved, hut it failed to give thc
reasons which huil led the engineer to
lhe conclusion lhat a span of t'nnt
Width wouhl he suitable, neither did
it give any information with reference
lo lliui"- organizations having been cuu
suited which had besu maltiug them
telvct heard wilh reference to the
several features of tho bridge. For
these reasons tbu department considered it necessary to refer tlie report
back to llic resident engiueer for amplification. In addition in this Mr.
Cleveland cited the fact that lbc
change in lhe personnel of lhe cabinet
which has token place was In content-
I I 'inin during his slay iu Ihe capital
and tbe di'put v ininiiili'i- WSI of ii|>lii
ion tbst the mailer wuk one which
mniii he referred to tbe head of the
department. Tbe time wat therefore
not opportune to pren tbe mstter, ju
simuch st tbs retiring minister could
ictrcsly f,e expected lu tin otherwise
iiiun refer it to bit lucceitor-
Tbe lupplementtry report of tbe
resident engineer bsd boon requested
however, sud ibould be in the hands
of the department within a short tiqie
It bad been agreed, however, by tbe
department tbst befure Dual approval
of tbe plans wtt given tbe Canadian
Pacific Bailway Qoiupsny wtould be
untitled and givon an opportunity to
be beard by the i|epartuient. Juit what
delay might he iuvolved in a procedure
of Uiiii imiure Mr. (iieveland was uot
prepared to slate, but be reconimeuded
lhat meantime tbt directors curry all
matteri forward to the utmosl pos
sililc limit, iu order to be in the besl
possilde state uf preparation when
approval  is ultimately  given.
Mr. Clcvcluud was quite salisded
iu his own miud lhat a spau of i'l-'
feet would be thought sultcjcnt. lie
had consulted tho cngiuceri of the t|e
partmeiiti and thc engiueer of lbc
Board of Bailway Commissioners ami
was sure that they considered such an
opening ample for all  requirements,
On motion of Beeve May a resolution of cordial appreciation uf Ihc
efforts of Mr. Cleveland at Oiiuwu
was unanimously passed, the directors
all being of opinion that much had
lieen accomplished which would prove
helpful iu future proceedings.

Reversionary Rights of
Provincial Government
A reply hsi been received by. the
diitrict council irnm tbe provincial
secretary in relation to tbe govern
mun t 'u ini ei-i'.-i on crown granted lauds
lu tile ininin i|i,uliiv Tbo reply, which
wss iu answer to Mr. J. (I. Fanner's
last letter on this question, was ruad
at the regular meeting of the council
last evening, il staled thut tbo goverument had given very serious alien
tion lo tbis matter, and afler discus
siou it was recognized tbat some date
must be fixed, ami thc dute of March
7 was decided upun, as that was the
date uf the issuance of tbe commission
to Mr. W. A. Mucdoualil, and alsu because thut was the date published in
Ihc liul ice iu the Gazette. Al the same
lime, the letter puinted oul that the
fuct that .a commission was to he ap
pointed -wus kuown weeks before ami
publicity was given lo Ibis fact in
the uewspupers. As a result of thii
publicity everyone wus enabled to
kuow of 'be cuursc decided upun by
the government, and uot only wus
Ibii known but the writer! had in
stances of subdivisions having been
made afler lhe notice of Mr. Manlon
aid's appointment, advantage being
takeu of Ihc fuel Ihut thc date where
ou the I.iniHi under ibis action could
be derived had beeu fixed. The government is therefore uf the opinion
Ihut they should not give three inuulhs'
notice ami thereby enable those who
had taken advantage of Ihe publicity
to deprive the government of its rigbtt
in tbe mstter.
Tbe council Iset evening disagreed
unanimously with tbe purport of tbit
lotter. Attention wat called to Ibo
fact tbst tbe government claimed that
having given nolice tbat Mr. Manlon

March 7 tbis gave sufficient warning
to everyone lo register plana before

ing Ibia effect It only hold bsck people
from registering until tho probleqi wss
seilled. The couucil knew of instsucoi
where plsns were passed by the council
previous to this date but could not
he registered on account of the commission which wus about to sit, but
the registrar has no evidence of thoso
parties so doing.
Upon tbo instance of Councillor
Westover, seconded by Councillor
Briiiginuu, il wus unanimously resolved
Ihut the government be made acquainted with these fuels ami lhat they be
requested lu authorize tbe registrar to
register ull plans passed by tiie couucil previous tu March 7, aud scondly,

Foreigner Found Dead
in Lynn Valley Shack
A foreigner by the mime of Daniel
or Max Braycick was found dead yes
terday iu a shack ou Westover road,
Lynn Valloy, by -Mr. Pearson, a real
estate man of that place, indications
point to deliberate suicide. The man
apparently had been dead two or three
days, but not longer. Tho police were
notified sl ouce ami the body removed
lo Messrs. Harron Bros., undertaking
parlors, this city, where an inquest will
be held on Saturday.
The deceased had not beeu seen for
some days and was being .looked up by
Mr. Pearson on real estate business.
On visiting the shack uo response wus
giveu to his knock, although the door
key was on the outside. The door,
however, was locked on tbe inside, ami
Seeking lo see wbat was the mailer
Mr. Pearsou peered in llirough the window. Tbu upturned face of the deceased wus one of Ihe first objects lo
meet his gaze. Upon the door being
smashed iu by the police the dead man
was fouml lying on his back ou the
floor, witb a 32 40 Winchester rifle
between his legs, Ihe mustle pointing
towards his head. Thc bullet had done
its work ili nuiiii, lil> Ami a fearful
wound showed where the soft uoscd
bullet had passed through (be temple.
A letter was found on the table, ll
was wrilteu in very poor English, in
a foreign hand, and referred to some
real eslate Iraiisuctioni. Nothing was
removed from the shack and a Ihor
ough inarch will be made today by thc
chief of police, Mr. Liflon, in com
pany with Coroner Diploek,
Braycick was a bachelor, aboul .V,
years of age, ami a laborer. As far as

which lends itielf sdmirtbly to the

yellow aud blue. Wo ice rod and yel
low rotes, never blue; and Ihis will be
found true of all species. Owing In
Ibis fact, il is much easier to render
tbe true tone values in photography
than it otherwise would lie wilh lhe
three colors in evidence.
Tlie photographing of flowers shouM
never be attempted without lhe use
uf orlhui'hroinutie plates and a color

Yellows, for insttnee, will conic oul

tempting to photograph flowers be sure
to procure both these ueccssary ad
juncts to success or be condemned to

For a background any self colored

been giving considerable prominence In
Die ui'.luiiun wbicb has developed in
(ireat Britain against lbe exportation
nf very lurge sums, constituting prob-
ably (lie bulk of the nation's uninvested capital, for investment in Canada und the iniiuii' A -It■ pm- li
Whicii appearoil a short time ago in
an eastern newspaper expatiated at
length on this topic, Mpecillc instances
were cited and names given, iu whicii
wealthy men of great prominence ami
influence in the Ubl (,'oun(ry were investing many millions iu development
enterprises in Canada uml Ihe other
overseas dominions. Beference was
iiiit.le to u book lately published, en
titled "The Awakening of Kngluml,"
upon lbe authority of which il wus
claimed that the commonly accepted
explunution that overseas investments
are mush more profllaide lhan home
investments wts an exploded theory,
in view of the very large relurus which
are possible' from the operation of
what is l.nii'.-.i, as the "small buldiug
system" in the management of large
tracts of Knglisli farm lauds.
In considering this subject it will be
. of interest to know, as nearly as possible, what have been the public bor-
rowings in Ureal Britain upon Ihe pari
of '..i.u.in A leading Loudon daily
has given Ihe following summary of

in whul way the situation in llm-lielngii
Is any mora delicate, from s public
viewpoiul, than WSa the situation In
Miielionnlil. The position of the lib
eral party certainly appears inconsistent, unlets it be frankly acknowledged
thst considerations of a party nature
render it expedient for them to refrain
from opposing Die Conservative min
liter in the spprotcblug oleetion.
The above figures refer, of course
io only lin- puldic borrowings, and have
no reference lu British capital ex
purled lo i in.a.in fur inu'slnient in
enterprises of a more private nature.
The figures, however, are sufficiently
large to muke clear lhe fad (hat (be
aggregate British capital invested hi
I'niiS'iu reaches an enormous amount
In so far as the exportation of this
money necessarily and* inevitably involves actual detriment lo borne in
lertsls, iti.l the working out of home
problems, it undeniably presents a situ
uiiuii whieh should give rise lo deep
concern among British ceouomnti
But shoul.l il he llic .ase Dial, nol
withstanding, the" large amounts ul
viiled in the overseas dominions,

uiilire.l to promote home enterprises,

would it not justly give rise  tu nation
al   In nt ii I inn:, f
Were it found that the British mar
ket was uuuble to provide the iniiuey
necessary for the ilevelopmeut of tbe
British possessions it is certain that
iiuiu possessions would not for one

nonprogressive and undeveloped con
ilkion, bul thai they would at once
turn their ultentioii to other sources
ami woiil<l pul imiii every endeavor lo
procure from other couulries the required money, witb tbo result that
other people than the liritish would
reap the harvesl from the colonial
policy which klngland has pursued
through the long centuries, a contingency whose results could not be computed as anything short of a national
and imperial calamity,
Kven as il is, uot withstanding the utmost watchfulness and Die steady inflow of Die largest available sums of
liritish capital, alien people, olher nations, are destined to take for lliem
selves a very large share of the new
wealth created by the exploitation of
the aa yet undeveloped nsturul resources of Die Hrilish possessions.
Viewed therefore from the stand
point of ils ultimate effects would il
uot be wiser policy for tbe British
economists to urge upon Die Britiall

which were wagou tracks in summer,
in winter hucanie quagmire* in which
horses and drays often stuck and

Moure earned the liberal salary that

to refrain from repeated the liberty,
and io Ibey returned to the more lum

"I want to be lonictbiug more in the

Moore regarded her face for a moment wilh a suspicious air and asked:
"What d.o you want it fort"
"I want it for the toothache."
"ll wouldn't require so large a quan
tity as tbat. A few drops on cotton
wool will do. Hero, 1 'II put a few drops

"No, no, no," said the woman,
shrinking away. "1 must have two

Moore considered a moment He full

meant to commit suicide, if hu refused

"Well," bo said, "you may have

careful in ill use."
Moore filled a small phial wilh a
dark fluid, labelled it "I .nudum.in,
Poison," and banded it to the customer.
She almost snatched it from his hand.
She threw down lhe coin, ami with e
smothered "Thank you" left the store
as rapidly as she had entered il.
Monro gazed after her with a queer
look iu his eye, whilu a smile played
about Ihe corners of his mouth. Then

did uot slop to recover it. Hit course

Hmi-rnineiii streets. Tbe guns frowned
down upon him as if they were prepar

servants of the public |u railway build
Iiig, it teems lhat our fond hopes will
not be realised for tometime to come.
It is only another liisttnee of wbtt
fools we mortals be, especially ou election day, whon the public bucomo as
clay in the potter's bssdi under the
influence of political spellbinder*.
Hut wu .uliuul better matteri now
by any indictment of tbese people who
got our voles last election, but sbould
coiisider matters nearer home in tbs

Home, caiinol bo built iu a day, but

in their way, they usually grow iuto
tangible realities if thc financei are

quite satislied the sinews of wtr arc

Hut while we arc waiting for the
railroads lo materialize we can iiml
nough tn do at home to iee if we caiinol improve matters in our midst and
lay lhc foundation of a thriving city
Ihul shall be at some future date. The
recent tempest in a teapot that we had
in our midst when some of tho rate

iu the civic administration shows, that
t» there is no smoke without a trt,
thai Ihere musl be somo groundi for
Ihis action, "be tbou clinic aa ico
or cold ai mow, thou canst uot escape
calumny," is a passage from Hamlet
that politicians, as well at otberi io
public life, might well remember and
ihape their course accordingly. The
great (rouble with Noyth Vancouver ii
the mania for real estate speculatiou
thai seems to possess tho property
owners inside lhe boundaries ami tbe
blighting eile, i of speculation ou its

Ihe intelligence necessary to see that
it is time lhal a halt wu called in es

few unscrupulous individuals in whose
lives avarice is the prevailing passion
and who huw the knee in servile obedience to thc almighty dollar. Tbia ittls
of affain instead of attracting legit
imale business ami capital bat tbe
opposite effect. The city counrll can
not be blamed for it, either, for tbty

tbey cannot be held responsible for

Pear Bin—There is st the preieut
lime cQiisiderelfle street tslk regarding
S city hall alts 'or North Vancouver,
|n view o'-whlch I 'sel constrained to
say a few words regarding !'n|i (host
Important queitlon. .1 understand the
city council ars culling for tenders
for ground for a situ. Hueh being the
esse, when Ihese lenders ure considered there will likely he s variety of locations offered, eueli one having some
especial- feature Ihul will render it
ideal for the purpose. Tbo city eouueil wl|l certainly have a task before
then) when they undertake to ijecido
upon ii tlte thst will have sll tlie necessary ipialilii-iilions. The |ilun suggested
by Mr. Tircmini siinielime ago, namely,
the esntre of I^opsiisle avenue between
Lower and Upper Keith road, it a
good one, and it might lie good busi
nun to tecure thit tite if possible nuw,
although wo sre uot now in a position
to build the structure which that Iocs-
lion would require. Therefore, in view
of the fact ilmi lln- school board have
decided to got a school situ further up
the hill,'and the present building being useless for olher ihun public pur
poses, the suggestion of Alderman Dick
lhat the ' in ie,in-Ill school, between
Third and Fourth slreels, lie used as
a city hull, fur the present time at
least, seems to me like sun ml advice.
There we have a large piece of ground
wilh a good building'on it, emiiiently
suitable for city hull purposes, and al
tlie present time would be more convenient for (he people who use il thun
if it were further up the hill. At a
very minimal cost the grounds could
be plowed up, plauled in grass, etc.;
a large balcony constructed with au
entrance fsciug the water, ami a good
inul of .paint would make a creditable
cily hull. The mouey thus saved in a
building mighl complete the opening
of our city streets, extend our sewer
age system, or install a gas plant,
either of which wuuhl he belter busi
uess than to discard a good building
and erect a new one al this ^lage nf
(he city's development. •*,'< '
