The ferry directorate mot yesterday
afternoon In the board room at the
ferry offices, Mr. W, ft Oladwin pre'
siding In tbe absence of Mayor McNeish.
A letter was read from McDougall-
Jenkins Uiigjiiuurs Ltd. euiieerniug their
rooaiilly acdtpitiui tSiuliir nf $H!1.'I4)
Tor oil tanks, iui iinntini; I Imt tbey had'
made a good start on these and stating
that barring accidents, which are absolutely unavoidable and beyond their
control, they know of no reason whey
thoy cBimot complete v.hliin tlm specified timo.
Manager Hoard reported that be bad
takon up the question of oil supply
with the Imperial Oil Co., and thoy
bad informed him that it was not necessary for the ferry company to approach the Grand Trunk Pacific at all.
In their contract with the railway company they wero privileged to put in a
pipe to Bupply the forry company with
oil from their own tank.
Mr. II. (I. Wright in,,., r.i that tho
tender nf tho Imperial Oil Co. be ar
copied. Tin ■ was carried, tho tcmler
in question being one of 8ISc a barrel.
Mr. Heard said he hail noticed iu the
newspaper thai tbe Vaiicuuver Board
of Trade hmi recommended the appointment of a harbor master ahd port
warden who shoulil lie supplied with u
tug hunt and nthur accessories of tidlcc.
Mr. Heard thought it would bu well
for Nortli Vancouver lo back this up
He recommended that the directorate
should write to the Minister of Marine
and Fisheries or to the local Hoard of
Trade on lhe subject. Certainly it wai
something they should have hero. Unl
year lhe company spent over HMO iu
repairs lu Hie ferries thruugli damage
occasioned hy driftwood, sunken piles
etc.
It was dc.-nlcl thai a letter lig for
warded to the minister of Marine aud
Fisheries through Hie member, Mr. II.
II. Stevens, ou the lines suggested liy
Mr. Heard.
On Ihe motign if Mr. 11. C. Wngh:,
Ficinued by Cant. Cates, il waa roaoli
.'•i '1st from th I'rel day of vlurdi,
'lie I cats run .1 twenty mi inn ■ set
vice up till eight o'clock at night until
further notice.
The ,|n, s.ii.111 of bringing lhe cars onto the wharf then arose.
Mr. Wright considered that the time
was near at hand when they tdiuulil
lake sume definite stand in the matter.
Lonsdalo avcuue was a disgrace tu
tbe rity. The mud ami filth ami slutili
lhat the ratepayers had lo go through
to get lo the . nr.- was simply disgrace-
ful. Something uught to be' ',«.;• lo
bring the cars down onto the wharf
Mr Heard recalled Ibat certain of
the bygone directorate had disfavored
the idea. He personally feared thst if
the cars were brought onto the wharf
there wuuld he congestion in a year or
two.
Mr. Oladwin wondered whether it
woold be more advisable lo bring lhe
cars down to the edge of lb# wharf.
Kveulually (he hoard decided to defer the question until the return nf the
msyor, probably two weeks' hence.
Tbe publication of tbe government
report on tbe condition nl Canadian
iilinrluruil banks on the laat day of
1011 hIuiwu the wonderful growth In
the amount of deposit ea compared
with tho statement af the corresponding day of the previous year, the Increase being from (896,181,40$ In 1010
to $029,080,096 on the' last day in
Wl,
For ibe first time in the history of
Cauadllin banking the note clrcnle-
tioii exceeded tho hundred million
mark, ami un' Increaso of 38 per cent,
ovor tbe circulation at the ond of the
yoar 11108, when it was 173,068,834. In
1000 tilt) circulation totaled (81,896,-
739, and at the end of DecomRor 1010,
it was (87,604,840, bo that iii the year
just ended tho circulation Increased
almost as much us in the two preceding years,
The loans made by the banks have
kept pace with the deposits, the current loans in Canada at Iho end of
1011 totalling (774,000,172, an in-
croaBO from 1677,064,820 in the previous year, (602,741,812 in 1809, and
(511,8118,009 iq -lOOt.

OF L. PLATT LATH OF NOBTH
VANCOUVEB
Happening lo ho iu, furl Haney a
member   of   the   Eipresa   staff   do
ided to sec how the life of ranching
or ralher chicken raising suited the
otic time North Vancouver sboemakar.
II was surprising lu see the headway
tbat had been made by Mr. I'lall and
his brother-in-law, Mr. Shaw. The
i.its. li is about three and a half mil,'
from lhe station, near l|ie Lillooel ri
ver. Two nice bungalows have been
built, together with sis large chicken
houses each capable of holding one hundred birds. Last summer over l/MO
chicks were batched and Ihuugh Ih
fates were not too kind fhcre are now
dver four hundred laying pullets as tbe
result/? Hut llrsl year's work. Tbese
birds laid over 7,640 eggs In December
aud January. Only White Wyandotte*
and White Ughorns are kept and il
waa a beautiful sight lo see tbcm busy
lo Ibe grsan (elds. Mr. I'lalt believes
in giving the birda full range though
ths houses are so arranged thai no mat
ler how laid Ihe weather the bird*
ara dry and comfortable.
Tbe incubators were already being
got to work as early chickens arc In
great demand u broilers. A row Is
kept and all Iba milk eicept for house
hold use Is fed tbs chickens. Addition
al housos are in course of construction
to accommodate the new arrivals. Both
Mr. and Mrs. Piatt were enthusiastic
over the ultimata success of tbe undertaking and are looking forward tn a

Tba advent of two banking instilu
tlons sueb as tbe Hank of Montreal
•nd tbe Canadian Bank of Commerce
to this eity at practically the same
date, Is an event of so notable a nature
as to justify special comment.
It goes without saving that these
are two of the very foremost banking
institutions ef Canada. The incoming
of either of them would rightly be
considered an important event in any
growing city. The simultaneous entrance of tbese two great hanking
liinmes, however, is a development to
which special significance will be at
tached in the mind of the public. As
for the Bank of Montreal, it' is commonly believed, that the local branch
bas been decided upon because of the
steps which are at present being taken
by tbe Conadlan Pacific Ilailway tu
build a Hue along the North Shore to
tho city of North Vaueouver and farther west. While there is no Information at praaent which would indicate
the immediate cause of tlio decision of
tbe Dank of Commerce lu establish a
branch in this cily, there Is a general
disposition to conclude thai some development Is ponding locally which
emanates from tltuse financial circles
whicii lie within the sphere of influence
of lhat hunk and hence Iheir action.
Whatever surmises may be advanced
with reference to the reasons actuating
these great corporations in locating at
Nortli Vancouver, there need be no
conjecture as for Ibe substantial benefits which their presence will confer
upon the reputation of the North Hliure,
in influential flnaimial circles, \\nlm.
a few days North Vancouver will lie
able to point with pardonable pride to
the fact that ils banking facilities are
unexcelled even by the leading cities
of Ibe province, consisting as Ihey will
Of six hanking offices representing Ave
of tbu strongest and best hanking
houses iu the Domiuion of 1'aituda. This
fact alone will be recognized as sufficiently significant lo attract lhe favor
able attention of tbe financial wurld
In this city in a viry special maimer,
thus plaeiug the North Shore in a very
piiviahle position in Ibis important par
tieular.
Iu point of fact no wording could bo
more precise or impossible of inistindur
standing than is that of the bill itself,
which provides that tho proposed cum
mission is not lo be an executive hotly,
but Is simply, to collect, tabulate, unit
arrangu information on which llm gov
■■I 'in Is to act.
It is evident that all data provided
by such a commission wouhl constitute
tbe indisputable authurity iu llic House
upon tariff matters with the result Hint
all proposetl tariff diungcs could be
dealt fith much more readily, miicli
more safely ami without creating thnt'
friction and confusion iu debute which
frequently arises from conflict of opin
ion among members with reference to
the facts of the ease. The existence
of the Commission wouhl place thu tariff on a nm. li more Bucure busis and
in u much atronger position.

DOMINION   TAEIFP   COMMI88ION
The lucid and business like pronounce
incut of Hon. W. T. While made in the
(lltawa house on Wednesday effectively
removes every reasou for any misun
dcrstanding as to the duties ami pow
trt of the Tariff Commission which tlte
: s . il.n,s i,i proposes to appoint. The
speech of Ihe Minister of Finance makes
it perfectly clear that Ihe Commission
is appointed for the purpuse of gather
lug information, arriving at and tabu
luting statistics etc. with reference lo
every industry or other interest which
is in any way affected by the tariff,
in urder Ibat the government may al
ways have at hand in aystematincd form
all requisite material of the most up
tu 'lgte character, for tbe purpose ol
pnu'eeding upon a. sound ami jntelli
gettt busts witb reference to any' alter
un,um of the tariff which lhe government may have under consideration at
any time.
It was with regard to this very matter tbat it w*t felt by the opponents
of Heciprocity thai Canada was at such
hopeless disadvantage as compared witli
the United Wales in the consideration
Iif ilml important question. Tlte Tar
iff Hoard of the United fim, - had labored InreseanJIy for many months and
bad placed tbe United States government j* possession of tbe last item of
detailed information which bore upon
the issue, while the Canadian govern
ment wu found to be in pitlablo ignorance of those same details wilh
reference tb this country.
The constant readiness of tbis item
i/i',1 information is likewise essential to
sound methods of tariff revision. As
the minister declared, tbe basJs of tar
iff making and tariff revision should
be tbe ascertainment of facts, lie
cause it wss impossible for the ministers to personally procure this absolutely Indispensable information, it
was proposed to establish a permanent
commission to gather and tabulate tbst
Information for tbs use of tbe government. It wa* not an attempt to rein
gate tb* powers and functions of Ibe
government, to any outside body. Tbe
responsibility of tba government for
tariffs wouj^reroain precisely wbat it

Kemp has olitalned from Mr. Jack
Newton (who i» now employed on t|io
No. 8 forry mid whose homo is at the
corner of Bomicb anil Third street)
a sworn epitome of his heroics.
Newtoh's story, as told by liinmelf,
and siguetl in tho presence of a notary
public, is one which any man might bo
proutl to relate. The Humane Society
will indubitably rcclignizc Ibis ami
supply tho. story witb u fitting cliuiat.
It is probable that the trustees of llm
Carnegie Hero Fuml will also lie approached. A distressing fact in connection will) tho case is thut Newton,
utter saving so many lives (for there
are instances other than those ho has
recounted) should so nearly have lost
one that is personally dear to him. His
wife has been continuously ill since
her arrival from the old ruunlry ami
wss regarded as being practically at
death's door at the time of Newton'it
plucky rescue on the ferry whurf.
The following is liis own embroider-
etl statement as handed  lo Hocretary
K rttil'l
"About sixteen yeurs ngo I ran
awuy from my home, tlio town of Barrow in Fitrnese, Ntyth Ijuiciwliirt.', Kng-
land. I made my way to Liverpool
sud soon afler my arrival obtained
employment at an oil eako works in Burlington street near the I/ecds and Liverpool canal, Thin was either in the
month of .Iuue or July. At noon on the
second day of my employment during
the lunch hour, 1 walked down lit the
canal to watch some boys who were
I.,.il.n.i I had been Ihere but a few
moments when lhe alarm was given lhat
a boy who hsd dived into the water
had stuck'hll head and shoolilers in
lhe mud on the bottom of the t'snal.
As no othor oltcmpl wae being made
lo offer the lad assistance, without
wailing to divest myself of clothing I
dived in and luckily managed lo free
Iho lad from the mud and bring hint
to tho surface, and by practice of ar
lilii'inl   respiration  brought   bim  hack
to i mn i.'-tn  ■       I   was a  stranger
iu this place, knuw none of lhe btiya
or Iheir names. As my noon hour was
up, 1 hurried back lo my Inborn. One
witness of the affair made a note of my
name but lo this day 1 havo heard no
thing further regarding the matter,
"Whilst walking along Blackburn
linii'l. Church, Ai'trington, Lancashire,
Knglaml, ono day in tin- best of my
memory in April, Inul, I saw ti horse
and cab running away down a flight
hill al full speed. I noticed that one
of the cab wheels had been broken "tl
and the cab was turned over on its
ilde* The horse was mad with friglil
and Ibe road being smoothly paved,
enabled him lo run al a great spcetl
dragging Iho broken tab behind Alinttl
twenty yard* ahead the road wan be
ing repaired and lbc workmen bud piled
Hie stones in a large heap. II was
tin n that I noticed Ibal Ihere were oe
s 1.1'nni.- in lhe vehicle and I reeliiod
that almost certain dcalh awaited
Ihcin. Whereupon I made a leap for
Iho horse's neck and luckily ipunoged
10 get a good hold and soon had him
on his knees. With the momentum and
through the horse rolling on me, I w
badly scraped, but nol dangerously in
jured. As I recovered myself I saw
a man put his licadjlirough the door
of the cab. He was very pale uud
was unable lo speak. However before
another carriage had been engaged he
so far recovered from the shock as to
shake my hand ami Ibank mc for res
cuing bim from almost certain death.
11 was about u year afterwards I made
his Sfi|uainlaucc; he then gave mc a
small sum of money and again thanked
me for lha resucc. Hi* name i- Dr.

"One Sunday nigbt in November,
1907, in company wilh a young man
named William Hilcy, I was taking i

Ing and soon net young men wbo run
up lo us informing us lhat there was o
woman in Ihe canal. We hastened lo
Ihe place al full speed and upon reach
ing Ihe point designated by our inform
ers found all quiet at Arsl, then later
we heard a noise from Ihe waler and
after lying our four handkerchiefs and
a muffler together I went intn the
waler holding one tod sf Ibe muffler
in my baud while my friend on Ihe
bank held Ihe other end of our im
provised line I succeeded is gelling

It was a very dark n'ght ami freezing

nu'uIn of Jems—t)io liny.... A temple
nuncio had appriaod Nasaroth of the
approaithlng feaet, The festal caravan
wai soou en route—On arrival, not
the prodigious mass of humanity, nor
tlte golden ami  marble    temple,  nor
these, but the Messianic idea ami the
dawning consciousness "I am lie!"
absorbed Jesue ami made lliin oblivious
to time, placit, and huinun relation'

Jewish cusliim. Hillings nl tint Italiliis
were npen to all and "suns of the
laWi'i, Hebrew youths of twelve and
ever, wero welcome ami encouraged to
show i'. l.i.i Ihey knew. The catechetical
was the favorite method. "What mean
ctlil" was on tho lips of teacher anil
taught, u Imt suppriswl the doctors
iu this iliihlriiii tin was uli,'ii.1' uf
rabbinical phrase. Touch of school was
not on Him, Here was originality
divine—truth free from scholastic
barnacles yet childish humility trans
fusing ull. The "Father's matters"
weru subject of discourse! the Messiah,
when, whence, wbal liju, and effect of
Ilis  coining!    Nn   wonder  they  said.
"Whence this wisdom I" The con
venation between mother smi child
easts n little ray on that relationships
It is as if Mary had said, "Hon! hen-
is your lirst aet thai passes my eoinpre
hension!" Mnre of pathos than
tpierlotisncss! Ilis answer, dutiful ami
affei'linuale, is, "Mother, I'm surprised
you sought Me anywhere hut in My
Father'1 houie, I Ihntight yuu know
lite inieresl lhat mould attract Me
tbere!"....Hut cheerfully He quit* the
temple fur the carpenter shop, and
Hiinhuilrin fur peasants nf Nazareth,
all nt His lowly mother's book...
rite incident was uf incalculable value
lu Jesus. Consciousness first i|uifki'ned
iu letnple bloomed iu His suut. Still
subject to Ilis parents, and having
iiiiriniil human development, knowledge
of Ilis divine'vocation ran parallel
wilh il.
The Teacber'i Lantern
This incident, at first blush a pictorial affair, bristles with lessuus fur
parents and cbildern, tut teachers siul
pupils,   ll is an analohiy uf a child's
heart Never child obeyed like this
Child. A better example i,s inconceiv
able — Howard uf filial obedience is
here cxempliflcd. Increase in age was
paralleled by inrroaea in wisdom. Pop*
ttlarily with mail by favur wilh liud
... Art and letters have distorted this
picture. Jesus did nut dispute with
the 'lmtors, did nut climb lu teacher's
llcceiviiig is inure eunspiciuous
than imparling. Jesus lels^slip evl
donee uf ilis knowledge unly as He
searches for mure,."I must!" Happy
he whu hears and heeds Ihe Father'*
ins.-I' Ii.i.   is 1...lliin;! irksome,
however. Tu be tuld He need net
obey liis Father would be as surprising
to Jesus as In till Ibe morning glory
it need nut open lu the miu — Jeius
was lhe ideal learner. He kepi tilliug
with wisdunt. He stored His memory
with Hcripltiru and drew His environment, physical and social.
Motile from Conimentarlii
Home uf Jesus had beautiful setting
uf physical scenery. Ne/arelh, with
white denies and aliuinlaul fuliage, has
been dcicribi'd ae a handful uf pearls
in a gubiet of emerald. Herntuii, Te
bur, I'armel, The Hea, and Ksdracluu
were in light. Iinpreseiun un* Jesus'

In Jewish household sweet confidence

NOTICE
TO HOLDERS OF NON-REGISTERED AGREE
MENTS FOR SALE
Contrary lo lhe usual practice lhe Assessment Notices for
1912 have been sent to tlie registered owners of property
according to tlie Land Registry records.
Up to the present, purchasers have been in the habit of
notifying lhe cily authorities lhal l\\e property had changed hands
so lhat notices of assessment and taxation should not go astray.
This form of registration of owners has heretofore been deemed
sufficient for city purposes, but owing to a recent decision the
city council is advised by ils solicitors to recognise these owners
only who appear on the records of the Land Registry Office.
Unfortunately a great many never register their deeds or agreements.
The North Vancouver .Land and Improvement Company
has received numerous assessment notices for 1912 for property
which it has sold and which has since changed hands two or three
limes.
The Company, therefore, desires to notify persons who have
purchased from it that they should take steps to ensure notices
of assessment and taxation being sent to them so lhat they may be
come aware of the value at which they are being assessed' and
pay taxes as they fall due.

Have You Figured«the Loss
From "Busy" Signals?

\
■ ■i
Suppose a Customer is about to order something or
other over your telephone. The operator finds your
line or lines engaged. The customer must wait—or
order somewhere else. M»yhe he chooses to wait—
calls again—again finds your line or lines busy.
'I hai means a possible loss of a customer.
The business man needs adequate telephone service for the accommodation of his
business and his customers. When you lose
customers through "busy" signals, it has
been proved that your telephone facilities
are inadequate.
y (
People who get business make it easy for their customers to get them and have the number of telephone
lines iheir business requires. The number should be
determined by die amount of use at the BUSIEST
time of the day.

They were looking In Ihu future to
compensate tbem for Ibis loss, and litis
agriein.nl would cut Ihem out of u
large part of the territory their frun
In-' covered. He asked that instead
of invalidating their agreement ill relit
lum In West Vaneouver the committee
iMitii.t consent to thu insertion of a
clause compelling tlte new municipality
to take over Ibo contract of tbu old
municipality iu Into.

Mr. Hull said Ihey had un particular

Mr. Bobertson said thaj the bylaw
