Harbor Commission for
North Arm of the Fraser
Bill  Will be Placed Before  the  Government at   Ottawa   This
Autumn Seeking Certain Powers���Mr. Geo. H. Cowan
is Retained to Draft Bill
Ere this is read by Seeuth Vancouver people, ill all probability the lirst
step  will  have been  taken  te,  form  a
Harbor Commission feer the North
Arm ot the Fraser River, Mr. Gee,. II.
Cowan, K.C., Vancouver, has been re.
mined by the jeiint committee lee
draft the bill, while Mr. J. D. Taylor,
M. P. for New Westminster, will see
ii through the House of Commons
ihis autumn, The only opposition to
be feared is either from New Westminster or Vancouver. The former has
promised to support it, recognising
that any benefits accruing to the
Xorth Arm will revert to them. Vancouver does not see it in this broad
light, however, thc aldermen of that
City viewing with apprehension any
outside developments as being detrimental to the expanding trade of Burrard Inlet. How Vancouver stands
een this point therefore remains to be
How far-reaching the passing eif this
Bill will bc to South Vancouver no one
can conjecture. That Vancouver fears
it, and that her present aldermen try
l.e hide this fear under a veil, is only
too plainly manifest in their dealings
with thc entry of the Canadian Xorth.
era Railway into False Creek. Al-
ready these aldermen see looming i��
the distance the great fresh-water bar.
heir te, the seeuth of them, They recognize that all shippers will hail for the
fresh-water port; hence they hind thc
Railway  Company with    fetters    of
steel te, make Burrard Inlet their port
e,f shipment, If they have blocked
this railway company, there are still
four other railways hurrying at breakneck speed to get an outlet on the
Pacific Coast.
That South Vancouver is on the
eve of great development is well
known within inner circles. That
cold water should he thrown upon
that promised progress by the City
of Vancouver, particularly when an
annexation programme is to be considered at once, is not reassuring to
South Vancouver. It might well be
asked that if this is the treatment before annexation, what may be expected
if annexation should take place.
Plainly if South Vancouver is to get
thc greatest benefit from the Harbor
Commission it will he hy hcing incorporated as a separate city, not as a
suburb of Vancouver, in which event
the Harbor Commission would be a
mere figurehead. If annexation takes
place, then farewell to all developments on the Fraser River. Burrard
Inlet may easily claim the entire
Government grant for harbor purposes.
Around the Municipal Hall
Large numbers of South Vancouver people were this week the recipients of a bunch of heather sent
Ire,m over the seas. At present
the heather is in full bloom and the
mountains are a mass of color. The
proprietors of the "Weekly Scotsman" newspaper send sprigs of
heather to every subscriber in all
kneiwn parts of the world. Thousands
of sacks of it are dispatched every
year   to   the,se   who   have   left   their

"It's an ill wind that blaws nae-:

whom they were stolen and gave him
one dollar for them. In this way he
secured about 200 pounds of apples���

Al lhe meeting of the School Board
mi Tuesday evening a question arose
as to who was the School Board's
solicitor. Mr. Whelpton, the chairman, stated that lie thought the muni,
cipal solicitor would now net. The
question arose over a certain quit
claim not being made out in thc Collingwood site. This is a serious matter, and if it is correct then there must
have been gross carelessness on someone's part.
The Newly Appointed Solici'o: for South Vancouver
An engraving is presented this week
of Mr. Colin Clarke, lhe newly appointed Municipal Solicitor, lie was
previously assistant solicitor tee the
C. P. R. in this province. Coming to
Vancouver two and a half years ago,
he qualified as a Canadian barrister
and solicitor. Previously he had a
soljcifbrship in England. As lie was
chiefly engaged in municipal work,
his experience should prove eif great
benefit   to   lhe   municipality.
In making lhe appointment the
present Council has carried lo fruition the desire of preceding Councils.
That the time has passed feer lhe employment nf outside solicitors has
been only too evident. The hill of
ceisls that lhe Council has been receiving feer legal advice, when totalled
up al lhe end of lhe year, has been
such that it was easily seen lhe- Ceuin-
cil were paying in excess t" whal they
would have to pay for salary for a
first-class man. Prom an economical
point of view, therefore, ihe Council
has made a commendable move.
At present there is such a mass .if
work to take up that the solicitor
will he kept busy feir many months to
come. Xot only do lhe bylaws urgently need amendment and consolidation, but many of them are anli-
qtwt'ed and out eef date, while eithcrs
cannot be enforced. It is also a well-
known fact that the franchises granted to the various bodies ought to be
gone thoroughly into. It is known
that many clauses in these franchises
are illegal; in facl. il is asserted by
many that some e,f the franchises
granted by previous Councils are not
worth tlie paper they are written on.
Undoubtedly the Council at an early
dale will demand a full repeert on
these. Then the present work is always grow inn meere and more. How
urgently a solicitor was required was
demonstrated al the School Hoard,
when "lie of the trustees explained
that a quil claim had not been given
by one of the parties who Bold a
sell"..1 sil,' lo the Board nearly two
years ago. The School Trustees
should dune to some' arrangement
with the Council, s,, thai Mr Clarke
could lake up tin' work of both bodies.

over the annexation terms as presented by ihe' Council e,f South Vancouver. These terms were submitted by
the Council senile time ago. and have

the dealings with the C. X. K . which

Cedar  Cottage  vs  River  Road
A football match was played on
Saturday last between these clubs at
Wilson Park, and resulted in a victory for Cedar Cottage by one goal
to nil. The score is an index of the

between the teams.

for South Vancouver Reeveship
Announcement is Made that Present Reeve Will Go to

Fight is Probable
As time gen-s on, rumors ami counter-
rumors can be heard as in retirements
in thc South Vancouver Council. Already Vancouver Aldermen are intimating iheir intentions l"r lhe next
year. S" it is in keeping that South
Vancouver ratepayers should kmew of
ihe intentions of members eef ihe pres-
ent Council who will seek re-election.
It is understood that Reeve J. V Kerr
will again be in the field. His many
friends will be pleased lo hear tin-, as
undoubtedly, after the arduous labors
of the past year, they think il but
right lhat he should get another year

to the highest expectancy eef some eif

Council Definitely Decides to Increase
Representation���Effict    on
A great deal eef discussion has been
heard concerning, the increase eif the
number of Wards iu Smith Vancouver.
It may be stated that the Council has
decided to increase the number <>i
Wards lei seven. Reeve Kerr was
anxious that the number should be
six, but the Councillors decided to
' make  Ihe  change  from  live  tei  seven.
What e-ffect any move to increase
the number of Wards will have; ai
this juncture-, when lhe annexation

seen, especially as in the annexation
terms as submitted by South Vancou.
ver ihis municipality is asking for a
representation of ten members mi

About a dozen passengers received

Edmonds a year ago they have worked up a very large business in thc
district around Jubilee. To meet the

Mr. MacPherson'l houses are not
conspicuous save feir the sensible,
substantial lines upon which they
have been built and equipped. The
design of each is most artistic.
Throughout there is a happy lack of
bright paint and noisy architecture.
Near Barnct, within the municipality of llurnaby, Mr. MacPherson owns
a hundred acres of land, and he contemplates laying out parks and boulevards on this land, grading streets,
installing sanitary and water systems.
He will build his own houses on the
ideally located property. In the general scheme of his proposed "town"
Mr. MacPherson will no doubt develop many improvements e,n town-
planning as it is practised in British
Columbia at present.
First Aid Appliances
At the lasl meeting of the llurnaby School Board several very important matte-i were discussed. Secretary
Barham had on exhibition a sample
box of first-aid appliances. These
wcre carefully examined by the trus

they would be a valuable acquisition

ordered that a box be procured for
each school.

North Burnaby  Acres
"liny acreage- new a growing City," Was James J.
Hill's advice ulieii afrke<l .-what he considered tlie best
aiMl safest form of investtnent. ,
N'orili 1'eiirnMiv acreage is undoubtedly the !��c-t investment close tn the growing City of Vancouver.
We own some of the very choicest Acreage in
North llurnaby, and will sell same in blocks of from
five-sixths of an acre to one and a half acre.
It is impossible to enumerate here the many reasons
why this property is a gilt-edge investment. We may
say, however, that our prices arc not a dollar higher
than you would have to pay per acre for 40-acre
blocks, and we give you 3 years in which to pay.

Throughout the Vancouver peninsula there is no residential district
more favored by Nature than that district in Burnaby the hub of which is
Edmonds, lb the north there are the
everlasting mountains, snowy hooded,
and to the south is thc Fraser's North
Arm, beyond which stretch the productive acres of Lulu Island.
Edmonds and the territory surrounding it is high, and there is
bright sunshine there for a greater
number of hours every day than there
is at any other spot on thc Canadian
Pacific coast.
There is a man at Edmonds who is
performing a work in these days that

which he will cause the citizens of

Planting Bulbs
Every home grounds has some place
in which there can be grown some of
the beautiful bulbs. Spring-blooming
bulbs must be planted in thc autumn.
They are known as "Dutch" bulbs,
from the fact that they are propagated
exclusively in Holland, and cover the
kinds known as daffodils, narcissi,
jonquils, tulips, hyacinths, crocus, allium, chlonodoxa, etc. There are a
number of other bulbous-rooted plants
which should bc planted in the fall,
but as they are not Dutch spring-
blooming bulbs, they will not be considered in this article. There arc
three essentials in the successful culture of bulbs : good soil, good drainage, and early planting to secure a
large root-mass. Plants breathe
through their roots and leaves, especially the bulbs. They cannot live
without air at the roots. When the
roots are surrounded by water the
air is cut off and they die or become
Beds made especially for thc bulbs

The Cat-and-Mouse Game
It makes the game more exciting to
have several mice and several "cats."
A ring is drawn on the ground and
this is the "trap." Each mouse is provided with a piece of wood on which
he can scratch with another piece or
with his finger-nails. The mice arc
allowed a few moments' start in which
to scatter and hide. Then the cats
start out to search for them. If they
find this hard, tbe mouse helps by
making a scratching noise, just
enough to attract the attention of the
searcher, and then, if he can. leaves
stealthily for another hiding-place. He
may crawl or creep or roll or use any
method of progression, but if he is
seen he must jump up and run while
the cat chases him. If he is caught
he is brought to the trap, drawing
all thc cats after him, thus giving his
mouse-mates a chance to seek new
hiding places.

WHAT treatment South Vancuuver might expect should
this municipality become a pari eef the City of Vancouver by the process e.f annexation was vividly portrayed
during the recent False Creek negotiations between the
Council of Vance.tivcr and Col. Davidson, representing the
Canadian Northern Railway.
Col. Davidson, in the course of his proposals to the
City, agreed to turn over in Vancouver something like
3U0 e,r 4tXI acres of lanel which could be utilized feer industrial sites. Unfortunately this land was neit situated
adjacent tee False Creek nor on Hurraril inlet, but lay
somewhere between the City of Vancouver and the City
of New Westminster. Accordingly thc Council of Vancouver, whtisc perspective is measured by thc length of
their respective wards, declined thc offer. Since then,
recognizing that they had made an error, Col. Davidson
has been approached to again make this offer to thc City,
but  he has remained painfully silent on this point.
To a great number of the aldermen in the City of Vancouver, if not to all of them, it was a well-known fact
that thc industrial sites offered by Col. Davidson were to
bc hicated along the North Arm of the Fraser River in
South Vancouver. Had the City accepted this clause in
the agreement, they would at once have found relief for
manufacturers in that City seeking cheaper sites; but because the Xorth Arm of the Fraser River was in danger
of enjoying the consequent activity instead of Hurrard
Inlet, they turned their own manufacturers and the Railway Company down.
That is the treatment South Vancouver' has been
receiving and may expect from the City of Vancouver.
In Vancouver everything is measured by the number of
feet e,f watcrfrontagc on Burrard inlet and by the size
of the different wards. Grist must be brought to the mill
that borders along Burrard Inlet, while the aldermen cannot see beyond the confines of their own wards. In
trembling fear lest some municipality might reap an advantage from their negotiations with the C. N. R., they
displayed their characteristic dog-in-the-manger attitude,
to their own detriment and loss.
In view of such a position il is well that the ratepayers
if South Vancouver should stop and consider what is to
jc gained by annexation by thc City of Vancouver, and
vh.it is to bc lost by the same course. South Vancouver
s n.et sought by the City of Vancouver in order that the
City may he allowed to pave ils streets or construct
a sewerage or water system. Vancouver requires to
spend millions more in improvements before her work
can bc said to be done, and against the predominating influence of ward aldermen, whose vision is circumscribed
by regular lines, what chance would South Vancouver
have? Surely Ihis False Creek incident is striking enough
to satisfy us exactly how the Council of the City of Vancouver stands in regard to outside municipalities.
by many ratepayers. They looked upon it as a dishonest
transaction to the other contractors who figured to pay
the full wage. It is now up to thc Board to exact tbe full
penally for Ihis violation. Xew Westminster, only two
weeks ago, showed how contractors who do not comply
with the terms of the ceeiilract can be dealt with. Unless
thc Hoard deal lirmly wilh ihis they will undoubtedly hear
more of it at Ihe next election. Thai the Board arc anxious
tei do whal is right Mi demonstrated at their last meeting,
when they closely questioned Mr. Bowman, the architect,
as to the1 rale e.f wages being paid. Mr. Bowman said
some e,f the contractors were paying $2.80 per day, but
he did not know if Ihis was Ihe standard rate of wage or
not. Neither did he know what hours the municipal employees worked. Imagine an architect, who had been
warned at lhe previous meeting thai some of the contractors were evading their obligations, c
such a statement! That the Board was thoroughly annoyed was only too evident, and thc architect was instructed to produce all informalion at the next meeting.
If he is unable to force the Contractor! to keep to the
letter of Ihe contract, then it is time for some heart-to-
heart talking. There has been enough of this shilly-shallying. If there has been a flagrant breach of any contract
or  contracts,  immediate   cancellation   should    be    made.
Typhoid and Impure Milk
report e>f Dr. Murphy and Health Officer Pengelly
o thc "ealth Committee of thc South Vancouver
Council den 's immediate action and an Investigation
eif lhe quality of milk served tei the consumers in this
municipality. Dr. Murphy's statement that there arc no
less than seventeen cases of typhoid fever in South Vancouver which can bc directly traced to impure milk is
clear and of such import that instant action will alone
satisfy the ratepayers that we are not on the edge of an
epidemic the ravages of which would make these seventeen cases in point look like a mere bagatelle.
While the Federal and Provincial authorities arc arguing
as to who shall prosecute dealers who sell adulterated
milk, infractions of regulations go on, and thc purity of
milk is left almost entirely upon the honesty of thc dealer.
Without fear of prosecution there is no occasion to wonder that impure milk is thc cause of so much sickness
within thc municipality. Thc only thing to wonder at is
that there is so little sickness where the elements conducive to an epidemic arc so prevalent.
The most important article of food in the dietary is
milk, and by far the most contaminable. One of the most
important and largest tasks which confront thc Health
Department of any city or municipality is to get the milk
of cows into the stomachs of babies and others in a
reasonable state of cleanliness and free from preservatives or from adulteration by water. That is a task
which is none the less pressing though the labor necessitating ils enforcement appears so exacting. If the machinery is so clogged now that the proper authorities cannot
exercise their powers in the defence of public health, it
seems as if the time has arrived when new regulations
should bc drafted which would permit of thc fullest protection to the consumer.
Nearly seventy years ago Robert Hartley made thc
lirst dramatic disclosure eef the relation between dirty and
adulterated milk and the sick and death list. It was this
disclosure which started the famous campaign against
"swill" milk, echoes of which arc still familiar tee lhe
olelcr generations. War upon the grosser aspects of deliberate dishonesty and greed on the part of thc dairyman and dealer in New York has done away with, to a
large extent, the practices of doctoring milk with preserva.
lives and adulterating it with waler. Evidently it is necessary to commence a campaign in South Vancouver along
similar lines, and that without loss of time.
I Vancouver "Sun )
Dr. Murphy, medical health officer
of ,s..iitii Vancouver, has contributed
his professional opinion een thc milk
question a! it affects this city and the
surrounding municipalities, by im
puting ihe illness e.i seventeen per-
sons who have come under bis attention ie< the impurity eif the supply.
The statement made by Dr. Murphy
eenly intensifies the popular feeling "i
insecurity which prevails. It would,
eif course, be absurd to call in i|ucs
tion  for a moment  ihe conclusions
arrived at by so many medical gentlemen iu  reference to tbe  cases of typhoid fever and of other diseases aiming forward with i trihtilcd by them tei this one cause.
Dr. Murphy points out that there is
no law authorizing the supervision of
the milk supply and that health officers are powerless to deal with the
matter. This is perfectly uuc; but
as the "Sun" has argued once and
again, abundant time has been given
since the milk supply became a quet-
lion in this district for the officials,
at least of the older municipalities
like Vancouver, lo have the law so
amended that supervision could be
exercised. We do not mean to say
for a moment that occasional letters
have   nol   passed   between   municipal
and government authorities, and occasional representation! been made.
What wc do contend is that there has
not been that earnestness on the pail
eif municipal officials which should
have been displayed in a matter of
such importance. It is not enough
when a reform is required or when
legislation is needed for the purpose
of dealing with pressing evils to merely point out the necessity for action
being taken, and let the matter rest
there. New legislation for the purpose of removing long existing grievances is not so easily obtained. Many
influences are to bc reckoned with in
obtaining it influences which offer
strenuous objections, and it is only by
insistent agitation that success is achieved.
It is between six and eight years
now that the milk supply has continued lo be a question in Vancouver; and surely, in that time, the
amendment to thc law necessary to
give the city authorities reasonable
supervision over the distribution
could have been obtained. As it is,
however, the whole question is in the
same position  that it was years ago.
If seventeen cases of typhoid fever,
directly due to the impure milk supply, have come under Ihe notice eif the
health authorities of South Vancouver in thc past few days, how many
cases of typhoid have had their origin from the same cause in Vancouver and the surrounding municipalities eluring the past six years? It is
simply playing wilh the question to
allow it to continue iu thc state it is
at present, and while that gentle game
is being played people arc sickening
and dying as a result of thc impurities
eif a foodstuff which should be the
best and safest article that the people
AS time goes on, the value of thc investigation which is
being held into School Board and municipal affairs
in South Vancouver becomes more apparent,  Transactions
which take place from day lo day hy lhe School Board and
Council arc under the strictest scrutiny of Commissioner
Crehan, and not the slightest false step escapes his eye.
This point was emphasized at the last meeting of Ihe
School Hoard. According to the Act under which the
School Board operates, the Board has the right i��> appoint a Medical Health Officer feer the schools. Hut the
An dues nol give lhe same School Hoard lhe right to
define  the ditties eif the   Medical   Health  Officer.    When
���he- Se nit ii Vancouver Se.h< >< >1 Board named Dr. Hunter as
iti Medical Health Officer, ihe members undertook ie> define certain dulies which he would bc expected to perform. Clearly this was overstepping Ihe power invested in
thc member- of thc Board according to thc reading of
thc Act. Dr. Hunter's salary at his first appointment was
fixed at $3,51X1.
When pointed out by thc Commissioner that they had
innocently exceeded their powers, the Hoard immediately
took action to rectify their mistake. Dr. Hunter was
summarily dismissed as Medical Health Officer of the
Schools of South Vancouver with certain duties to perform, and almost in the next breath was re-engaged as
Mcelical Health Officer with no particular duties defined.
But in the rc-engagement of the doctor thc Board decided
to cut $500 off his salary, and thereby left themselves open
to be surcharged to that extent by the Commissioner. If
Dr. Hunter's services after his dismissal and re-engagement were worth but $3,000 to the Board, it takes no
particular exertion to see that his original salary of $3,500
must have been $500 too high, and the members of the
Scheie.1 Board, in consenting to such an overcharge, left
themselves open to bc charged back with the $500. Had
they re-engaged him at thc original salary of $3,500 the
Board would not have left themselves open.
Recognizing their mistake thc School Board at a meeting this week fixed the salary of Dr. Hunter at $3,500, and
thereby thc curtain is rung down on this incident.
TTHE opening of the Panama Canal alters thc face of thc
*��� commercial world. The first sign of it in a distinct
way is the lowering of tolls announced on thc Suez Canal,
for it is recognized that whatever may be lhe rate of
charge, thc convenience eef Ihe Panama Canal is so great
and is so farreaching in lhe saving of time in moving
goods and passengers that much use will be made of it,
in any event. Hut lo hold ils business, the management of
thc Suez Canal has already started in lo offer competition
with thc new waterway.
Neither of lhe great canals call kill lb; olher. Being on
opposile sides of the world from each olher Iheir rela-
lieens are only such as would reiull from competition in
globe traffic. Hut, nevertheless, the opening of the Panama
Canal changes the face of Ihe worltl in several respects.
TTHE School Board is placed in an awkward position in
* regard to the question of wages paid by the contractors. The latter pay their men less than the standard rale
of wages. One of thc main planks of all thc present
members at the last election was standard rate of wages
and thc same hours to be worked as allowed by the various
unions, also that as far as practicable only South Vancouver men were to be employed. Some of the contractors
are honorably carrying out this agreement, while others
are bringing in alien labor at a cheap rate. When the
facts became known, a good deal of irritation was felt
Wilh the paving of Westminster Road a probability
within thc very near future, precautions shouhl bc taken
by lhe Municipality of South Vancouver that the pavement

the first experience of the South Vancouver Council in
Ihe realms of permanent road work, but with knowledge
of pavements so accessible there will bc no excuse if the
pavement selected docs not come up to the highest
standard. We believe that in thc paving of Westminster
Road thc question of cost should be a secondary consideration. Westminster Road as the connecting link between Vancouver and New Westminster demands that its
pavement be satisfactory in every way, and the question
of cost should be allowed to creep in only as an after-
ele      *      *
At the last meeting of the Board of Trade of South
Vancouver, Mr. H. B. A. Vogel brought up a point which
might well be taken into consideration by the Council of
thc Municipality of South Vancouver. Mr. Vogel suggested that in view of the fact that the property on either
side of Kent Street would in all probability be occupied
by warehouses within the next few years, the Council might
place a resolution on the Minutes to thc effect that purchasers of property on either side of this street should have
the privilege of running a spur from the B. C. E. R. tracks
into their property. Such a resolution would officially
recognize this street as business property, and would bc
a warning to persons who might buy there for residential
purposes as to certain liabilities to which they might be
put in the future.

Many peculiar things have been brought out at thc investigation by Commissioner Crehan into the affairs of
thc School Board. One of the most remarkable is the
incident reported last week, that a Vancouver stationery
and printing shop had supplied the School Board with
flannel, absorbent cotton, garbage tins, and zambuck!
Imag ne a firm in the stationery and printing business
selling medical and hardware supplies to a School Board!
Certainly this is one of the tit-bits of the investigation to
Famous Telegram
In describing early telegraphy upon the Great Western Railway of
England a writer recalls thc first case |
of a criminal being brought to justice
by means of thc electric telegraph.
This event took place a few months
after thc extension of the system to
Slough in 1844. A murder had been
committed at Salt Hill, and upon
hearing of the occurrence the vicar
of  Upton-cum-Chalvcy   (thc   Rev.   E.
T. Champness) was Informed that the
last person seen tei leave tbe house
was a man wearing Ihe dress of a
Quaker. Mr. Champness at once conceived lhe idea thai thc suspected person had probably fled lo London, and
acting upein his suspicions hastened to
Slough Station, where a man answering to the description was seen by thc
vicar to pass through thc booking office. Communicating his suspicions
to Mr. Howell, the station superinteit-
dent, ihe latter caused a telegram to
be sent  off.
This was ihe telegram which raced
(and Heal I lhe train to Paddinglon :
"A murder has been committed al Salt
Dill, and lhe inspected murderer was
seen lee lake a first-class ticket feir
London by the train which lefl Sl< muli
at 7 h. 42 in. p.m. He is in lhe garb
of a Quaker, with a Drown greal coat,
which reaches nearly down lo bis feel;
bc is in the last compartment of the
second firsl-class carriage." The following reply was received from Pad
dingtoii : "The up train has arrived,
and a person answering in every respect the description given by telegraph came out of thc compartment
mentioned. I pointed the man out to
Sergeant Williams. The man got intei
a New Road omnibus, and Sergeant
Williams into the same." The New
Road referred to is the present Etiston
road. It is but fair to add that the
miscreant, who proved to bc a forger
returned from a twenty-one years'
transportation, had already been discarded by thc Society of Friends. The
prisoner, Tawcll by name, and once a
well-known city man, was committed
to jail at Aylesbury, and finally suffered the extreme penalty of thc law.
It is said that at that time a signal
for the letter "Q" had not been provided, and the Slough telegraphist
forwarded "Quaker" as "Kwaker."
His colleague at the Paddington end
three times queried the un-English-
looking word which began "Kw," but
fortunately grasped its meaning when
somewhat unwillingly he permitted
the whole word lo be finished. That
first wire between Sloueh and Paddington, by the way, was worked at
the inventor's expense, and thc Great
Western Railway authorities had actually given him notice to remove what
they considered a useless apparatus
when the capture of thc Slough murderer by its means brought into existence the Electric Telegraph Company,
which purchased Cooke's patents for
��120,000 and later disposed of them
to the Government for  ��10,000,000.

There trailed, two by two, across
"The Field" e.f Central I'ark. a procession eef Bail Side children who had
i- c from  the streets of the teste-
tnenti ie> enjoy s "May Day" em the
grass; and, like all those little picnics e.f the ciiy i r, they made inch
a parody eef the sunburned jeelliiy, the
old country mirth of the poetic fes
tiv.il, thai they would have been ludi
croui If they had neet been se> pathetic.
They   were  headed  by  a   boy   with
a Maypole maele e,f a broomstick and
a barrel-hoop that  had been  trimmed
in  the colored  tissue-papers    of   a
butcher's holiday beef. A bullet-
headed young "King eif the May"
walked under thai canopy as stolidly
as a stage super with the footlights in
his eyes; and the "Queen," beside him,
in the while costume of her "first
communion," blinked and stumbled iii

glare on her while veil. Thc girls
who followed���all subdued by the un-
accustomed spotlessness of their
finery���went clumsy-footed wilh excitement in their broken and warped
shiics. And the buys���with the boy's
fear of being laughed at���tried tn re

They were almost grotesque. They

outward show of the inward spirit,
they were as pitifully inadequate as

Policeman Flaherty held nut his
white-gloved paw fur their "permit,"
pointed out their allotted place under
the trees at the edge of the Held, and
Stood to review them with the sympathetic smile of a man who had once
been a tenement picnicker himself.
Thc boys did not loeik at him, except
with a furtive glance over the shouhlcr

to his uniform and to its effect on the
public. He watched them until they
had clustered around a grav beech-
tree over to his left, swarming noisily
together in their release from the order of parade. The careful mothers
began to change their daughters'
white dresses for play clothes. He
turned away.
Below him, tn his right, the small
boys of a fashionable boarding-school
were playing a game of cricket, aristocratically dressed in white flannels,
and coached by an athletic tutor wilh
an imported "English accent." And
Flaherty wrinkled his eyes to study
them, interested in the game because
he had never seen it piayed before,
and���for the same reason���contemptuous of it. He stood on thc wooded
edge of a knoll, with the picnic on one
side of him and the cricketers on the
other; and he made a fine figure of

"No?" Gray saiel.   "Who owns you?"
His tone was so coldly polite and

glared at him in a sort of amazed

for the cricketers���the contempt eif

"All  right.    Hurry up, now."

passionately, "Thai's sheeah blackmail!   You shall not pay it!   We have

"Will you have a drink?"
Ile answered "Nol" with such violence that his glasses slipped from

The Permanent Paving Material���
A pavement which will provide for all conditions
of traffic and climate must be constructed on a common-sense basis.
Concrete is recognized as the only material suitable
for permanent work, and is used as the foundation for
all modern pavements.
The discovery of a satisfactory concrete wearing
surface has been made in Granitoid after years of experimenting and study. In our Patented Granitoid
Pavement we have a concrete base and a concrete
wearing surface that will meet all the requirements
of automobile and vehicular traffic, and a pavement
that will become more durable with age. An investment in Granitoid pays the highest returns in durability
and satisfactory service.
Watch Westminster Road from Main Street to
Prince Edward, also Davie Street, Second Avenue,
and Columbia Street, in Vancouver.

the frightened circle of his pupils.
"What's thc matteh?"
I'laherty did mit answer. He thrust
the buy roughly ahead, with the box
uf stolen flowers in his hand. "What

He was frightened, but not confused.

He answered : "Yes, sir. 'Pocky'

Flaherty, "is the direct result of yuuah

"Cut it eiut," Flaherty growled. "I'm

"Very well," Gray said.
A second policeman, in answer to
Flaherty's whistle, came tu take
charge uf Stewart, while Flaherty
himself made a wide detour through
the woods lu strike the May Day picnic iu the rear. In a few minutes
there was an outcry among lhe trees;
a crowd uf buys, with Flaherty at
their heels, tlarted uttt into thc field
and scattered in all directions, Among
them "Pocky" was made conspicuous
by lhe fact lhat Flaherty followed him.
The boy took a flying glance over his
shoulder ami saw the justice had
singled him out for pursuit. He looked around the open field desperately
as he ran; and then, seeing nu hope of
escape,   he   turned   and   surrendered.
I'laherty hooked him with a finger
in the ceiliar and led him over tu Cray
and his pupil. Ami the "gang." fed
lowed .by Mrs. Leech and thc disordered picnickers, closed in on them
in a state of shrill excitement.
"Did yuh sell, him them flowers?"
Flaherty demanded.
"Pocky" tried to assume an expression uf indignant innocence, ami
achieved one of brazen effrontery, "I
never sold him nnthiu'," he declared.

Wood Block Pavements in Chicago
A simple record "i the steady increase in the
use of Wood Block Pavements in Chicago is
a strong and typical testimony to the merit?
of this type ni paving,
The following table shows the area of wood
blocks laid in thc years mentioned :
1903         188 square yards
1904          7.2.S8     "
1906        13,250     "
1908        85,870     "
1910      103.177     "
1911     271,000     "
1912     400,000     "
The total wood paved area in Chicago today is 589,806 square yards. By the end of
1912 the total yardage will be approximately
a million, equal to 62 miles of 30-foot street.
Wood Block Pavement puts an end to the
barbaric uproar of city streets. It brings our
cities to the standards of the European capi
tals, where Wood Block Pavements arc almost
universal wherever there is heavy traffic.
In addition, Wood Block Pavement is the
only pavement which outlasts granite block.
It is, in fact, the only payement which is both
durable and quiet. It is slippery on fewer
days of the year than any other smooth and
quiet pavement, and truck drivers go out of
their way to use wood block streets for the
sake of the easy traction. The laying of wood
block always brings to a street an increased
The oldest Wood Block Pavement in the
L'nited States is on Trcmont Street, Boston,
Mass. Asphalt laid alongside of it has been
worn out and replaced. The Wood Block is
as good as ever, and although, the guarantee
period has expired, it will not need repairs or
attention for many years to come, the wear
up to date being practically negligible.

Submitted to Committee
"The well at Central Park is closed

doing well. I am very pleased to say
that the trip up to Seymour Creek
on thc invitation of the Vancouver
Council was a very enjoyable one, and
thc spot located by Engineer Hurwell
is an ideal place for a reservoir such
as will be required in the near future.
In the above manner did Mr. Jos.
Mullett, water superintendent, report
at a meeting of thc Fire, Light and
Water Committee on  Friday last.
Mr. Mullett's report was also interesting in that ligures were presented
showing the exact condition of thc
South Vancouver waterworks system
at the present time. Mr. Mullett re
ported that up to September 30 last
6727 services had been installed in
South Vancouver, of which 1966 were
installed from January 1 last. The
cost of the system for 1912 to date
totals $132,934.72, the costs being apportioned as follows :
Service department, $11,047; meter
department, $1,672.81; operating,
maintenance and lowering mains, $17,-
17093; well drilling, Municipal Hall,
$4716.40; Central Park, $2817.41; Victoria Road, $1633.49; construction,
piping, mains, hydrants, $93,876.68. In
all there is a total of 176^4 miles of
waterworks system in South Vancouver.
Seventeen Cases of Typhoid Fever in
South Vancouver Due to This
That South Vancouver is suffering
from the delivery of impure milk
within its boundaries was contained
in a report of Medical Health Officer
Pengelly al a meeting of the Health
Committee on Friday last. They attributed no less than seventeen cases
of typhoid fever in the municipality
directly due to impure milk. Both
officers instanced cases were dairymen, themselves actually infected with
the disease, continued to supply milk,
thus spreading infection.
Another instance of how the disease is spread was given by the inspector, who declared that in a certain
house where there were two cases of
scarlet fever the milk bottles used
there were returned to the dairyman,
filled again and supplied to other
houses on the supplier's round. As
the result of this, continued (he inspector, a whole street became infected with the disease.
Questioned by the committee as to
whether no steps would be taken to
make a strict inspection of milk supplied for the public use, Dr. Murphy
replied that there was no law by which
this could bc adequately done. The
doctor instanced the recent case in
Vancouver, where thc city had to pay
damages to a milk dealer for publishing a report on an analysis of milk
supplied by him.
The committee took up the question of forming a hospital committee
and passed a resolution requesting the
Council to appoint such a committee.
A recommendation from Mr. Pengelly to establish a new system of receipts for use by the garbage collector was referred to himself and the
municipal clerk.

Board of Works  Upholds Inspector
Morris���Mr. Gray Complains
At a meeting of the Board of
Weirks on Friday afternoon, Mr. Gray,
of Commercial Street, Cedar Cottage,
Delegate  of  Ratepayers' Association
Makes Assertions Before Council
Thc privilege of free speech among
the employees of the Municipality of
South Vancouver was aired at a meeting of thc Council on Saturday afternoon. The matter was brought before the Council by Mr. Jas. Camp-
Jjell, acting as a delegate from the
Ward III Progressive Association.
Mr. Campbell asserted that several
employees of thc municipality had
been denied the privilege of expressing their opinions at meetings of the
ratepayers or elsewhere in public because of the influence of Ward foremen or of others, lie spoke of the
British flag and the liberty uf citizens
under it, and argued at some length
that every person, whether an employee of South Vancouver or not,
should bc allowed to voice his sentiments regarding the management of
the municipality.
Reeve Kerr, in replying, stated that
I here had never crossed lhe minds of
the. Council that in Canada���-a name
which stood for freed'.in and free
speech���there should he- any repression "i it. The Councillors hail neet
fur a moment intended curbing entire
liberty oi expression, ami would not
approve eef a similar ae-tiem em lhe
part of anyone else, toothing hail
ever gune front this Council ur from
any member of this Council, as far as
he knew, preventing or attempting lu
prevent expression uf opinion frum
any employee uf the municipality or
any person else.
Asked if the persons who had
speiken with him had said anything
about orders going from the Council
or from the Councillors repressing
speech, Mr. Campbell said they had
not. He could not reveal the names
of the men who had spoken to him.
They had merely said to him that they
had been told that they could not attend or speak at meetings of thc ratepayers till after the next municipal
elections. Following upon the remarks of the Reeve, Councillor Robinson spoke to the same effect, stating that the Council would not condone any action preventing entire
freedom of speech on thc part of any
contractor or any other person connected with thc Council.
Replying to other questions put by
members of the delegation, of which
Mr. Campbell was the leader, Reeve
Kerr stated that a resolution had already passed through the Council instructing that the name of the corporation should bc printed on all the
vehicles of the municipality; that the
street numbering system had been inaugurated, and that all houses north
of Bodwell Road were numbered, and
the system was being extended as fast
as possible; that application for comer
lights on Fraser Street and some
cross streets, the lack of which was
being complained about, had been
sent to the B. C. E. R. by the Council; and that that body was taking up
the question of improvements in thc
sewerage and water systems throughout the municipality. The last assertion was made in response to a statement that a resolution had been passed
at the Ward III Progressive Association   asking   for   the  formation   of  a

The Board also adopted a recommendation of the Engineer that the
River Road bridge be repaired at an
estimated cost of $1,200.
Cases Brought Before J. C. McArthur
July 1 to September 30
Chief Constable's quarterly return of
cases brought before J. C. McArthur,
Police Magistrate, July 1 to September 30, is herewith appended. With
the growth of the municipality there
is a corresponding increase in the
number of cases brought before the
magistrate.    1 he reports follows :
Drunk, 10; assault with intent, 1;
assault (common), 10; being on enclosed premises, 1; being in possession of stolen property, 1; highway
act, 12; health bylaw, 2; trades licence,
5; garbage bylaw, 1; plumbing bylaw,

inquired under what bylaw the Wiring Inspector had the power to enter
his premises ami tu condemn certain
wiring which was done about two
years ago, before there was either a
wiring liylaw ur a wiring inspector in
the municipality? He said thai wiring thai was dune iu Vancouver 25
years ago was still standing, anil noth
ing was said ai.uul it, and he wished
tu know under whose orders ur un
what authority the wiring inspected
had acted?
Wiring Inspector Morris stated that
when his department was not busy
they attended tu buildings wdiich were
erected and wired before the wiring
bylaw was passed; but, he said, they
never did su until there was a complaint or their attention had been
directed to certain buildings. "We
look over the work," said Mr. Morris,
"and if the wiring is bad we condemn
it. as we are authorized to do by the
wiring bylaw." In the particular case
in question, added Mr. Morris, they
suggested that certain things be done
for the protection of the property.
After discussing the matter the committee came to the conclusion that the
wiring inspector had acted in accordance with the bylaw, and in the interests uf the owners of the property.
Mr. Gray asked why he had been
charged $2.50 for the inspection. The
committee said it was according to the
bylaw; but they suggested to the inspector that he should endeavor to
cut down thc charges as much as possible.

Burrard Inlet and Port Moody
Will Be  the  Pacific Wheat Outlet
One of the vice-presidents of the Canadian Pacific Railway places the export of Canadian grain by 1915 at 273,000,000 bushels. Last year, getting over 100,000,000 bushels to the Atlantic seaport before the
close of navigation almost paralyzed the three Canadian roads. Now, what will happen when they must, within two years, get almost three times that amount transported to its destination? It can easily
be seen that it is impossible to move this great volume of prairie produce to Fort William and Montreal before the close eif navigation.
From Laggan, Alta., to Fort William is 1372 miles; from Calgary 1256 miles. Now. from Laggan, Alta., to the HEAD OF BURRARD INLET, PORT MOODY, is 518 MILES. Fort William navigation
is open only half the year. BURRARD INLET IS OPEN ALL THE YEAR. There is not the slightest doubt that Manitoba and part of Saskatchewan wheat may be rushed forward in time for shipment to
the Great Lakes before the close of navigation. Alberta, being farther west, has to wait very much longer for cars, and very little of her wheat can be rushed forward in time, so, under the present regime,
Alberta wheat must go on down to St. John, which is 2849 miles. Look at the figures���519 MILES FROM LAGGAN, ALTA., TO BURRARD INLET; 2849 MILES FROM ALBERTA TO SEABOARD AT
Now, you can see that while a car is making the one trip to St. John and back with wluat it could make FOUR TRIPS to PORT MOODY at the HEAD OF BURRARD INLET. These figures
should remove any doubt from your mind respecting the future development of Port Moody, for, do you suppose that the C. P. R. will erect large grain elevators on the north shore at Port Moody Iti
nothing? Do you imagine for one moment that the C. P. R. is spending $60,000,000 in double tracking its system and going to the trouble of constructing huge freight yards at Coquitlam merely for the
purpose of spending their money? A large corporation, such as the C. P. R., spends money with definite knowledge of the returns that will accrue. This great expenditure of millions of dollars is being done
for one purpose, and that is to enable them to handle the ever-increasing crops of Canada West. Now, supposing that the C. P. R. were the only corporation interested in reauhing tide water at the head of
Burrard Inlet, the amount of produce shipped by them alone would make Port Moody a thriving seaport shipping centre. Several other railroads are vitally concerned about Port Moody. The present industrial
activity is sufficient to place Port Moody's future upon a sclid foundation. What will happen when the other transcontinental lines enter Port Moody can as yet only be imagined. This information above is
given merely to show that if Port Moody is good enough for these great railroad companies to spend millions upon millions of dollars to reach, it must be good enough for large and small investors to place
their few dollars in well-located waterfront property at Port Moody.
We are now offering for sale a large number of choice lots, located on the waterfront, inside the City of Port Moody.   The name of this property is
the front portion of which has been reserved for railroad purposes. A little to the west of OLD ORCHARD is the probable location of the C. P. R. grain elevators, and almost in front of this property there
will be erected at a very early date a large wharf by the B. C. Electric Railroad. We want to impress upon you that OLD ORCHARD is not an outlying subdivision several miles from any development,
but is located right on the waterfront, on the C. P. R. and B. C. Electric trackage and within five blocks of the centre of the coming City of Port Moody, and within eight blocks of the new C. P. R. depot.
