Following is a copy of the memorial drafted by
the navigation committee of the board of trade and
forwarded to J. B. Kennedy M. P. for presentation
to Ottawa:
To the Honorable Minister of Public Works, Ottawa:
Sir :���This Board desires to bring to your attention the immediate necessity for comprehensive and
permanent improvements to the Fraser River, both
North and South Arms, to accommodate the ocean
traffic now offering for this port, and to enable industries established here to conduct and develop their
business _ without unnecessary hindrance and difficulty. There are now in operation here four lumber
mills of an aggregate capacity of 500,000 feet per
10 hour day. One of these mills is now loading the
third ship since the first of the year. Another mill
expects a ship in June of this year, and the other two
mills are contemplating entering into the cargo business. There are, upon an authorative estimate,
170,000 acres of timber berths immediately tributary
to the Fraser river, which will produce not less than
5,000,000,000 feet of logs, all of which will have to be
milled at this point, so that our sawmilling business
is bound to run into very big figures for many years
to come.
A strong company is negotiating for premises
here with a view of establishing a glass factory. A
certain grade of sand for a portion of their product
comes from Europe, and they rely upon the river to
bring this in bv ocean vessels direct.
The Great Northern Railway Co. have acquired
a strip of river front, and have plans prepared for
the construction of large docks, with the object of
making this a principal shipping point.
TheTraser River Sawmills expect a steamer to
loadilumber next month drawing 24 ft. 7 in. of
water, and there is now under charter a steamer to
load rails for this port to be here about September
next, ;having a draft of 25 ft. 6 in. It is therefore
absolutely necessary that the South Arm channel
should be deepened to accommodate vessels drawing
up to 26^ft., and maintained in condition for the passage of ocean shipping at all times. It is the opinion
of this Board that 25 ft. on Annieville Bar at low
water, which would give shipping the full benefit of
the tides on the lower stretches of the river, would
fairly meet immediate needs.
The North Arm of the river being the only practicable route for log towing from the coast camps to
our sawmills, by which route are now conveyed not
less than 75,000,000 ft. of logs annually, it is also df
paramount importance that this branch of the river
be maintained in proper condition for this traffic.
Some improvements were effected in this channel by
the dredge King Edward last year. This year work
should be continued and carried out to deep water.
In order to provide navigation facilities as herein outlined, it seems to this Board that the dredge
King Edward should be operated to the fullest possible capacity and a double shift put on if practicable,
as suggested in the report of the Royal Commission
on Transportation. Certain constructive work of a
permanent character will doubtless have to be done
also, looking to the maintenance of the channels.
Appropriations greatly in excess of those heretofore
considered adequate ^for the Eraser river will no
doubt be requisite, but the magnitude of the interests
involved is, in the opinion of this Board, such as to
amply warrant large expenditure, and it is hoped
that generous provision will be made during the
present session for this work.

Union   Man   Feels  Strong.
A strong dislike for non-union men
on tne par, of ;, bartender at one of
the leading hotels was the excuse ior
a little fracas that, occurred on Columbia Btreel near the postoffice about
0 o'cloc yesterday afternoon. A
couple of the men engaged In string-
lug wires on the telephone poles were
requested by the drink mixer to immediately join the union, and the request was supplemented by .sundry uncomplimentary remarks regarding
their personal appearance. The bartender offered to dust the thorough-
rare with the carcases of Ihe two
men if they would only descend from
,heir perch, which they declined to |
do under the circumstances. By the;
time the men's ancestors for many
generations back had been roundly
abused, quite a crowd had gathered in
ihe hope of seeing something exciting
happen, but the appearance of Officer
Ross on the scene, and his request toj
the bartender to take a walk down
the street and so avoid further trouble.
put an end to the incident.

One of the first churchwardens, W,

men arrived to engage in construction
About this time considerable discussion took place between some of the
Officers as to the proper spelling of
the name Of the settlement, one par,,
insisting on Queenboruugh and the
others declaring that Queensborough
wa.s the correct term. The matter was
refered to the Imperial governmenl
who Bettled all differences by deciding
that the place should In future be called New Westminster.. Mr. Armstrong
attend ihe lirst Christian sermon
ever preached on the mainland. This
sermon was preached at Derby in the
year 1S5S by the Bev. Mr. Creekman.
From the earliest lime, Mr. Armstrong
was actively connected with Holy
Trinity church and possesses Bome
very interesting photographs of the
early buildings, one of which shows
the iirst church and Ihe residence ol
Rev. Sheepshanks, which stands alongside. This is the house placed al his
disposal by two miners, and as the
rector was a tall man, and the bin
Was a very low building, the Quarters
occupied by Mr. Sheepshanks could
not have been very comfortable. At
the time of the fire that destroyed the
first church, Mr. Armstrong worked
with many others for four hours In a
vain endeavor to save the church, on
the old hand engine then In use. The
nearest water obtainable was in a tank
al the back of the fire hall and had to
be forced along Columbia street and
up the hill as far as the church. The
fire broke ,,m in Ibe vestry, at the
time used as a meeting place for the
Sunday school, of which ihe rector
was  superintendent.

Mr. Carter defended Judge McPherson as a man of great learning and
and of probity of character. If in participating in the banquet he bad cn-
leied into ibe spiril of tlie occasion,
he hail merely shown himself as B
good f.llow. He critlzed the course
of the in an who had given out the occurrences of the banquet He had
never heard any one intimate that
Judge McPherson was guilty of au excess in tha use of intoxicants.
Mr. Dolliver and Mr. Perkins also
defended Judge McPherson, Mr. Parkins declaring that, having been at the nisheCl
same hotel with Judge McPherson for
four years, he knew him to be a teetotaler.
Mr. Dolliver said that the judge had,
never been charged with a want ot judicial fairness.
Mr. Tillman next referred to a pleasure trip to Tampico given by three
railroads to Federal Judges McPherson, Philips and Pollock. His account
was condensed from the Kansas City
papers and showed that ihe judges had
been provided with a special car and
were accompanied by tho general solicitors of the roads giving the excursion.
Mr. Tillman said thai Judge Philips
had been especially commended by the
president  in  conectlon wiih the I'm,

president's curse in this case with his
course in crltlslng Judge Humphrey in

During the months of May. June

.May 12. the retail hardware merchants of New Westminster will close
as as usual left with their establishments at j o'clock ..���
Saturday afternoons, and open again
al seven ,,, the morning. This move
has been made at the request of the
hardware clerks, and the merchants
believe that their men will take a
grcaler interest in their business if
they see that their interests are considered. S"���ie year- ago this practice was in vogue, but was dropped.
Of late year-, several of the merchants have been in the habit , I
