Probable   that   Field   Notes   of   Royai
Engineers    Will    be Used to
Rectify   Errors.
Ciiy Engineer Blackmail was ii^
Victoria on .Monday investigating th<-
original surveys of the the City of
New Westminster. Some difficulty
has arisen over the exact lines of
Borne of the streets and lols. and as
the city is not in possession of the
original maps and Held notes it is
rather hard to had out tiie exact
measurements of the streets and lots.
On Richmond street there is one
place where there are two lines of
posts marking the edge of the
street, but no one knows wllich one
is correct.
At Victoria Mr. Blackman found
the orginal map of the city and several volumes of the field notes made
at the time of the llrst survey by the
Royal Engineers. Some of the held
notes date back fifty-one years.
Though the Held notes probably contain all the information sought by
the city, they can not obtain possession of them, as they belong to the
ollice of the surveyor-general. They
are much too voluminous to copy.
Engineer Blackman will report
how matters stand to the city council
at its next meeting, and it is probable that an effort will be made to
copy some of the notes, borrow the
notes from the surveyor-general, or
obtain a copy of them. The field
notes are absolutely necessary to the
city, ,d  maps in  use at present
are not accurate.

Ottawa, Jau. IS.���An Important step
toward the reduction of cable rates
has been taken here. The Canadian
government gave notice yesterday of
a measure vesting In the railway
commission power to regulate charges
which cable companies can make tor
service to and from Canada, it is
understood that the British government has undertaken to deal with
the cable companies as Canada is doing and that there will be uniform
action.
The legislaUou in Canada will be
put through by Postmaster-General
Lemieux. He holds that the present
cable rates can be reduced about 4t>
per cent and still leave the cable
companies a sufficient margin of
profit
The bill proposes to place the control of rates, both for wireless and
cable messages, under the control of
the railway commission, lt Is expected
that concurrent legislation will be
passed by the British parliament and
Canada to apply to all messages received in Canada, as well as those
sent from Canada, pending the establishment of a state-owned cable
between Canada and the motherland,
which is the ultimate object of the
Lemieux  bill.
The postmaster-general believes
that the rate for press messages can
be cut down to six cents per word
and the rate for deferred commercial
or personal messages can be cut down
to twelve cents per word.

Prices for small lots in Vancouver are exorbitant. Why pay them when large full sized lots can

RESIDENTS   IN    SUBURBS
SECURE ELECTRIC LIGHT
The anuual  report  of the  superintendent of the city light department
shows a successful season, with many
new consumers and several improvements to the plant.    At the first of
last year the price  of light  was reduced   two   cents   per  kilowat   hour,
making a difference  in  the  receipts
of JSUUO oi- $10,000.    This fall in the
revenue had to be met some way, and
as the only way available was to secure new consumers efforts had been
made with  tiiat em4 in  view.    As a
result over  three hundred new consumers had been secured, and many
more    had    largely    increased    the
amount of power used by them.   Most
of  the  new  consumers were  in  the
suburbs of  the city,  Sapperton now
using    more    than    fifteen   hundred
lights.
The-report showed that the load on
Columbia street was very heavy, and
some adjustments would have to be
made to relieve lt. Fourteen Btreet
lamps were placed during the year,
bringing the total number in use in
the city to 160. Even this number
Is more than the machines in use at
present are designed to carry, aad
the superintendent states that a new
fifty-light regulator will have to be
installed to properly light the city's
streets.
The report also suggests that the
repair man be supplied with a horse
and rig so that he could carry saa-
plies with him when he made bia
rounds and would not have to retain
to the power house every time he
wanted a new globe. The report,
which was read at the council meeting Monday night, was hied and suggestions contained in lt referred to
the light committee.

FARMERS AND ROADS.
There is sore need for Improvement
in the roads about this district and
in the plans and methods of making
and maintaining them. The Good
Roads Alliance, which has been established to secure the desired Improvement, therefore deserves Ihe
hearty support of every settler. Unfortunately the government is I he,
worst offender in regard to this matter of road construction, iis haphazard, vote-catching methods producing anything but satisfactory results.
This is one of the evils that the Good
Roads Alliance lias set put to remove,
and we wish them every success In
their effort.
The Alliance has put forth an excellent proposal for dealing with our
highways, it advocates the adoption
of a system whereby the government
will contribute fifty per cent of the
cost of tho road, the municipality
thirty-five per cent, and a local improvement tax be levied for the remaining fifteen per cent.
At present this progressive movement is supported only by the people
on the south side of the Fraser, bul
it is to bo hoped that they will invite
their fellows on the north bank to
join them. The farmers of Burnaby,
North and South Vancouver, Richmond, Coquitlam and Dewdney are
suffering as severely as any from the
ill-conditioned highways over which
they have to travel, and there is little doubt that they would welcome
any opportunity to secure an improvement in them. Moreover, such a combination would have the advantage
of being thoroughly representative,
and this unity of the whole Fraser
valley would give strength to the
movement.
What seems to be warned to carry
out the road work in a systematic
and business-like manner is. as has
more than once been suggested, an
administrative authority in the character of a Highway Hoard, with a
thoroughly competent road engineer
at iis command, an 1 three or four
district engineers under him. At first
such an institution may appear to be
somewhat costly, bin il would establish efficiency, and thereby economy,
in place of the present slipshod and
Irregular methods, which too often
result in a gross waste of Hie public
money.
It is most important to the progress and development of ibis district that it should possess sound,
good roads, well made and systematically maintained. Such a result can
only he attained by casting aside the
existiug unsatisfactory methods and
substituting an effective and properly
controlled system.
public and that it is in highly flourishing condition. The business transacted during the year closing November 30 last was in every way satisfactory. The net profits, after allowing for all bad and doubtful debts,
amounted to $1,510,695.86, which with
the amount recovered from over-appropriation, $300,000, and the balance
to credit of profit and loss brought
forward from last year of $161,244.88,
makes a total to the credit side of
$1,971,940.74. Of this $800,000 has
been appropriated for the payment of
dividends ati eight per cent, $419,801.-
72, has been written off bank premises, and $30,000 devoted to the pension fund, leaving a balance to carry
forward of $722,139.
The assets of the bank are al] of
a substantial and well secured character, being ample to provide for its
liabilities, as will be seen from the
general statement whic happears in
another column. During the year
twenty-five new brandies have been
opened in various parts of the Dominion.
The shareholders have adopted the
admirable suggestion of the directors
for the establishment of a fund to
provide for the widows and orphans
of deceased officers of the bank, and
a resolution authorizing this was
passed al the annual meeting. Mr.
B. B. Walker, C. V. O., LL.U., has
again been elected President, with
Mr. Z. A. Lash as Vice-President.
ELECT LOCAL MAN
ON DIRECTORATE
W. S. Rose Confident ot Success of Western Canada
Box Co.'s Undertaking.
TRIED   AGAIN   AND   WON.
The admonition of the old-time
proverb, "If a first you don't succeed
try, try again," is brought to mind by
an incident in connection with the
British general election. The cheerful optimism of Mr. Joseph Martin
has brought the doughty lawyer his
reward. Declining to allow his ambition to represent a British constituency to be stifled by the severe repulse which lie sustained at Stratford-
on-Avon a few months ago, he boldly
came forward as tbe Liberal candidate for the metropolitan borough of
East St. Pancras al the present general election. At one time his prospects did not seem very encouraging,
but Ihe lively spirit of our "Fighting
Joe" appears to have made its mark
and won for him this important seat
by the excellent majority of 690 over
Mr. Preston, his Unionist oppon-
nent.
Another well known Canadian Liberal, Mr. Hamar Greenwood, who represented York City in the last Parliament, was less fortunate, being badly
beaten by the Unionist. But the two
Unionists, Sir Gilbert Parker and Mr.
A. Uonar Law, have both managed to
retain  their seats.
The British elections continue to
excile the greatest interest, not only
in Canada, but the world over, ln
fact, such a contest has never before
aroused such wide and general interest as that at present being carried
on. It is pretty evident that the Liberals will again be returned to power,
but probably with a considerably diminished majority.
YV. S. Rose, of this city, was yesterday elected a member of the board of
directors of the Western Canada Bag,
Envelope & Paper Box Company, Ltd.
This company is proceeding with the
erection of its plant for the manufacture of bags, envelopes, box board,
building paper, etc., at Sapperton, and ;
the  engineers are  confident that  the
big plant, will be in operation by De-1
cember 1. Mr. Hose has been carefully looking into the merits of the pro- i
position for some time and  is confl- I
dent, thai the enterprise will eventu-
allj   result  in one of the leading  industries of the western country.
At present all the bags, envelo] es,
box board, building paper, sheathing,
roofing, etc., used in Western ('ana- .
da is secured from Ontario and Que-;
bee ai a freight rate of $17 to $18 per
ton in carload lots .notwithstanding
that the product can be manufactured
to betiei advantage and equally as
cheap in  British Columbia.
When Mr. Kolts, two years ago, or-
ganized  The  British Canadian  Wood ;
Pulp &  Paper Co., Ltd., which is now j
in operation at Port Mellon, twenty- ,
four miles north of Vancouver, turn-
ing out til most $1000 worth of paper
per day,  it. was thought that sufficient  money  could  not  be  secured  in
Western Canada to assure the success
of the big enterprise; but the manner
in which the people responded in support of the proposition has been un- |
paralleled in the history of Western (
industries.   The  success  of  the  com-
pany demonstrated that the people of
British   Columbia  fire   awakening  to
the great commercial possibilities of {
the province and are prepared to sup- [
port any meritorious proposition that
has for its object the development of
natural  resources.

FOURTH���The Fossil Oil Company owns FIVE HUNDRED ACRES
of the CHOICEST OIL LAND in the famous Fossil Oil field district,
Unta County, State of Wyoming, a state known the wrold over for Its
production of one of the finest lubricating oils, which can be used ln its
crude state, just as lt comes from the ground.
FIFTH���The oil obtained in the Fossil Oil field district is sold as
high as ten dollars ($10) per barrel right on the field, and remember
that this statement is based on fates, NOTHING BUT FACTS. Fossil Oil
sells from ten to twenty times more than California or Pennsylvania oil.
Think it over!
SIXTH���Machinery and drills are on the property and are in operation. General Manager and Oil Expert Mr. Stephen A. Hubbel reported
the strike of oil at the first sand, ylel ding from TEN TO TWENTY BARRELS per day some time ago, at a depth of about 147 feet. The main
flow   of    oil,    however,    is   encountered at the SECOND OIL SAND (It
is there where surrounding companies are having splendid results), nt a
depth of bitwten 750 to 850 feet. Just ANALYZE the last report, received
a few days ago: V-!�����.'���&*..'. -i,    ,
W   .������     J "Fossil, Wyo., Jan. 6, 1910.
"Bernet & Helm, Vancouver, B. C:     ^:&W*.5Z~%r^~'r :V'   9
"We are down 718 feet, and it looks as if the well will come In
within the next few days. The GAS is very strong, and, MORE OIL as
we go down. The reason I thought we would get it at a shallow depth was
we had more oil and gas than 1 expected and it threw or pressed the light
oils up a longer distance from the main body than it does generally, excepting when you get large wells.
"From the present prospect we should have a very largo and flowing
well. We have stopped working at night on account of THE GAS BEING
SO HEAVY. We went through over fifty feet of sand that the GAS HAS
PRESSED FULL OF PARRAFIN, making it very hard to penetrate with
the drill, I am absolutely confident now that we will get a much larger
well  than I expected.
"Yours very truly,
STEPHEN A. HUBBELL."
We can give you a good many more reasons why you should invest
in shares of the Fossil Oil Company. Limited, We tell you frankly that
shares will advance the moment we receive the report of the strike of
oil at the second sand, and this may occur any moment now. Shares should
advance to more than double and treble the present price. We place the
proposition squarely before you. We give you fair warning. The culmination point, viz., the strike of oil on the property of the Fossil OH Company, Limited, may occur before this reaches you. REMEMBER, SHARES
IN A GOOD OIL COMPANY, A COMPANY MANAGED BY RESPONSIBLE MEN, IS THE BEST INVESTMENT IN MODERN TIMES.
