The gathering was one of the besi
erer held between the representatives
of the two municipalities and all thc
distrust thst eacb had for each othei
as regards the grabbing ot lands and
rich political apportionments, slinrn'r-
ed and finally disappeared from view
The gathering 'was called tor thi
purpose of discussing the proposed
drainage scheme to include a portion
of the Sapperton district and alao K is
Burnaby and Edmonds.
Thia undertaking baa been mooted

prepansd showing the exact taeatlor
of the proposed sewer mains and tke
territory affected, bnt Jthe chief pouii
at Issue is the division Ot thc'eoft pn,

It was explained at the meeting
that with tts present small populalloi,
Burnaby could not hope to undertake
the building of lateral sewera can

cost of tho undertaking ln tbe trun'.t

Fraser. The government, he said, b>
allowing the main trunk to run
through the ravine property in the
penitentiary grounds, were saving the
city and Burnaby $18,000.
Surface Water Dispossl.
Crude sewerage was bnt lightly referred to, aa tha chief question at is
sue is the disposal of surface water,
which will be a aerioua matter to
handle now. that the city and adjoin
ing district Ib making headway ii.
building operations.
The question of improving the
Boundary road between the city and
Burnaby was also discussed, as wat
also thc matter of cross walks and
street lights.
According to the chairmen of thr
roapectlve boards of works. Tent>
nvntie will be well considered in thi
1913' estimates, while Alderman Ora>
will take up tbe matter ot cross walkr
with a Burnaby representative. -
As regards street lights It waa de
elded that Wiring Inspector Bowler ro
over the ground with Municipal Engl

Burnaby's share

at a cost of $123,841.
While endorsing the proposition
the Burnabv delegates could not sec
the light as to how they could finance
thc scheme.
It would mean, explained Reev?
Weart, that they would have to pay
out this su ti to New Westminster Just
fnr the sake or having a part owner
ship in the trunk sewerS which they
oould not hope to use tor perhaps
severs! yesrs to come. ,
Weart's  Suggestion.
He suggested that Burnaby enter
Into an agreement'with the elty o
New Westminster, paying an annua!
cost of about $7900 wbich would cover
the interest on the bonds and also s
percentage of the maintenance fund.
They were doing this at the-present
' time with Vancouver ' IA connection
with tbeir water supply.
This suggestion, however, did not
meet with the entire approval ot th'
New Westminster couubil, as It would
mean that this-olty would finance the
whole business, and as the matter
was of tbe local Improvement nature

corrugstloaa or projections running in

Particulars of trips hy the Mon:toria
and hyltonla. tao corrugated ships,
showed that this type was much leas
vulnerable than her "plain" sister:
that they stood collision nf all sorts
much better, thst they were' more
easily repaired, and that thay were n>
every way much, stronger than the
plain ship.
With reference to the claim of increased speed, In hls opinion that
claim had beon conslulvely established. The space between the eorruga

British Columbia's   Anna'.    Make a
Fascinating Story.
Soma idea of thc cxtft of th*
.pineral resources ot British Columbia
can be gathered from the- wrll-nsccr-
tained results of mining operations
carried on since the year 1852. Th"re
was mining at Hint lime, especially
the mining of gold, and the officio!
computation of production begins
with that year. Th? total production
for all years un to and including thc
year 1911, amounts to the enormous
sum of $397,696,722. Of this sum.
gold Iibs contributed $137,175,683; silver, $3*053,395; lead, $25,715,126; copper, $65,315;<M!t; the remainder being
madp up by the contributions of coal,
building stone, and metals such as
zinc. -
Between 1852 and 1891 the production by years has not been tabulated,
but since 1891 the total production
year by year is given. Of tlrese years.
1910 still holds the record of $28,377,-
066. Last year the output wns three
millions less, the decrease -being
largely due to n falling off in thc
output of coal, owing to certain disturbances in Ihe labor market.
Last year llie output of the three
precious metals���gold, silver and copper���had a total value of $10,681,450,
gold leading with a value of $5,151.-
613, but copper was a close second,
with n value of $4,671,644.
And aom* say thnt mining has only
commenced in British Columbia,
which is another way of saying tliat
the present operations, output and
profits, are small in comparison with
what they will be whrn operations
are more fully developed, when other
know.i deposits are worked, and when
further discoveries are made. But it
is not lo the future that it is here
proposed to look, but to the past���ti
the long ago time, when gold was discovered in British Columbia and gold
mining commenced.
It has been stated thnt as early as
1852 Chief Trader McLean, of the
Hudson Bay Co., when at Kamloops.
procured gold-dust from the najives
of the Thompson Kiver. Respecting
the truth of this statement some
doubt has been expressed, and it is
pointed out.that three years later the
same man was "ringing the praises
of the mines in the American territory, without savins a word of any In
liis ctvn vicinity"���which is held to
make it quite, unlikely that he knew
of gold liaving heen found in British
Coming down four years in the history of lhe Province, one renelie?
sur"r ground respecting tli> date nf
date of the discovery of goH, for it is
certain that in 1856 or 1��'>7 po'-d was
found in the crevices of rocks on
the banks of the Thomoson River.
Hearing of the fir.d, Chi-fTrader McLenn, of the Hudson Buy Co.. went
up tlie river and examined the banks.
Sure enoujli gild was th-re ss re-
port��d. and McLean promptly sent
down to I'ort Victoria for what he
call.d "iron spooii3 to lis n-od in dig-
gin-; out the nuggets." These were
promptly sent tin to bim with the
instructions that he give "as much
encouragement ns poss'ble to the Indians willing to el-vote their time nnd
energies to that purpose."
News ot the discovry traveled fust,
and soon renelied the Pacific Const
slat-s. whieh had had the Bold fever
ever since th? days of thc Californian
"Forty-Miners." Boon a parly of explorers and miners arriv-d nt Vic-
lorin. nnd Ihence intended the Fraser
Itivrr to within a short distance of
Fort Cal" where th"y discovered Hill's
liny, which proved vry rich.
These miners on Hi'.i's Bay "panned-out" d-iily from one hundred to
on? hundred and fifty dollars' worth
of gold dust, and after a considerable
quantity had barn secured it was
s��nt down to Victoria in charge nl a
celebrated character, "Billy" Bsrdou.
an pxpressman, who had had much
experience among the gold camps of
California. As soon as It was known
thst gold dust wss being shipped out
ol tho catnp more miners came pouring in, and so -the gold lever spread
n.i more gold waa lound.
The Rev. A. G. Morice, O.M.I., in
his History of the Northern Interior
of British Columbia, states that "tba
first lot of the precious metal to leave
the limits ol what is now British
Columbia, found its way foito San
Francisco, where it was taken in
February, 1868. by the company's
stesmer  Otter."

Mr. P   M. Horne Payne, the chairman, said:
I jtd'i's and Gentlemen���We have endeavored (o make the report and ac
counts clear to everyone, and nothing
occurs to me In connection with them
that requires further explanation.
They record another aatlsfactory year
ln the history of the company,
v I airf verv pleased to be able to tell
you that our two hydro-electric install
atlons which have been so long undei
construct1���, and wbich have Involved]
the expenditure of each large amounts
of capital, are beginning to earn
money. In February last the first
unit at Jordan river waa put into operation, and it has successfully delivered power into the City of Victoria
ever since with satisfactory results to
tho earnings of the Victoria branch.
The second nnlt was alao completed
successfully about a fortnight ago, and
we have commenced the work of increasing the water storage capacity, In
accordance with the original planj, a,.
that we may be' able to gradually In
crease "tbe electrical development unit
by unit to its' utlmate capacity cf
about 45,000 H. P. Thus we-are providing In advance for the Increasing
demand for power in Victoria and the
surrounding districts where  lt seems
nent stability as an enterprise ls on
tlrely unaffected by the failure of tht
negotiations.   Our position briefly is:
The City of Vancouver can  purchase
ln 1919 our lines within the  original
limits of the city (excluding our inter
urban lines), and   no   more.     These
l'nes comprise only a very small portion of our 280 miles of railway.     In
the districts .recently annexed to thi
city, our railway franchises   cover   i
long period, and In South  Vancouvc
and Point Grny our franchises, I hav
already mentioned, have at least 3"
years to run.   Accordingly, if Vancouver exercises Its option to purchase lr.
1919, people traveling between th" out
lying suburbs and the centre of ***���
city must pay a double fare.   I think
thla is likely to be so objectionable ti
the people and so injurious to the b'ts*
nesi Interests of Vancouver, that thi
option to purchase In 1919 will not b   I
exercised, and that we  will  contlnni
to operate as at   present  throughon'
the cltv and surrounding areas for ai
other 37 vears, when South   Vancoi,
ver and Point Grey will have   the1,
f'rat option to purchase.   Our llghtlm
and power business Is not touohed It
any way by these negotlat'ons.
fn the ordinary course I should clos
my remarks at this point, but I fee'
that It Is due to the management ant

We were first approached by the
City Council of Vancouver on this sub
Ject some three years ago, and we had
every desire to meet the wishes of the

we were compelled to break off fhe

opportunity was being taken to put
forward a number of evtravagant de
mands upen your Company, We cduld
not concede these demandv as, had
wn done bo, wo should have beea un
nble to f'n&nce, and .should actually
haro landed the Company In bank

them we were making enem'e.s who
intentionally or unintentionally published statements which were utterly
misleading���some of them grotesquely
untrue���to the detriment of our bu3l
ness. On two subsequent occasions
we have been approached bv tho c'tv

to carry on exceedingly lengthy ne

The prosperity cf Vancouver has t
a very large extent been created b
the enterprise of ycur company durin.
the last ten years.
I wlll give you facts ln support c
this. In fourteen years wo have grow
from notblng to be the largest elec
trlcal enterprise in the British Em
pire, with possibly ono exception. Wi
have expended $36.000.0n0 cf cash u
to the present, and In order to ralst
Ihat sum we' have had to keep British
Columbia and its resources constant!

our  accounts, audited   by two   well-

of casb Invested in your enterprise ln
each xear since 1398, and the amount
paid out In dividends and interest. The
figures involved are Soo numerous tc
be read out bore, but I have had some
copies printed for your information .':
find that tn only one year,   namely
1903, have we pad more than   5 per

I think that none of the Vancouvei

doubled and trebled In value dirt"
the last few years largely through (hi

ln due course, as conditions In Rritlsl

wlll receive It.
In conclusion, I would like to say
that your enterprise has been care

���Cupholdsri Downed by Lack of Combination���Big Crowd tees Thrilling Gams��� Score 7-2.
���  Mccarty wins in
sixteenth round
Lack of practice and combination
���on th'e paft ot tbe Paterson cuphold
era lost them the flrst game of the
coast hockey season which was played
on the Vancouver rink last evening.
the Terminal City septette piling up
the big score of 7-2.
The contest was purely one of in
. diriduallsm'versus combination   and
Frank Patrick and hla   merry bunch
. Just romped home with the hacon4
Although the score Indicates a loosa
game on tbo part of New Westminster, the contest for an opener waa a
thriller from start to finish and the
-crowd, estimated to be between live
and six thousand, simply went wild
when either of the two teama started
Tbe flrst period opened with a
rush, Vancouver getting the puck past
Lehman twice before the gong sound
Westminster came back In the second and Jimmy Gardner engineered a
pretty run which ended ln tbe captain
notching the flrat point. It waS'only a
short spasm, however, for Cyclone
Taylor next got an easy goal past two
of the defence players.
Vancouver came through with a
Vengeance ln the laat quajter, scoring
ao leaa than four goals.
Of these Kendall, the former amateur, obtained a couple, while old HI
Griffls broke Into the scoring column
by going up the Ice all by his lonesome.. Charlie Tobin added the second fbr the Royals close on time.
For-the victors Taylor and Parr out-
fhone. The latter, between the nets,
was brilliant, although at times luck).
On the Westminster team lt waa difficult to feature any player. The two
new players, Tobln and Oatman, show
ed uo well, and with a little coaching
by Jimmy Gardner, they ahould soon
fit Into the machine work of last
year's champs

('D like to run for president; 1 lasllr
think 1 ehould.
Because I stand for everything that's
right and wise and cood.
I've thought about li alT and on the past
aire, weeks or more.
And every day 1 Ilk* myself some better
than before.
If everybody understood lh. kind of man
A  popular uprlsln'  would at once take
place for nie.
My platform 1 wlll try to give without no
uielese frills.
Then let the people cheer me from tbe
valleys and the hills.
I'd  have a tariff that  would make the
cost of llvln' small
And   keep   up   price. ' everywhere,   wltb
benefit, for all.
The farmer and the millionaire, the clerk
and hlraal hand
Would alt be treated fair and .guars If I
could rule the land.
I'd have a plank provldln' that all wrongs
should dlaappesr.       '
We'd have a navy that would fill all other
landa with fear.
There wouldn't be no watered milk, the
germs would all be hilled.
I'd  do  away  with  Hoods  and  have all
empty purses filled.
TAe' gover'ment  ehould  have control of
everything In light:
The people ahould have cheaper coal and
dogs should cease to bite.
Another plank 1 have In mind and which
'   I'll now explain
Would put an end to early froat. and regulate the rain.
I'd have all kind, of alcknes. .topped and
accident, should cease;
The rogues would all reform, and we'd
havo universal peace.
I'd Ax It .0 all married men should learn
to love their wives.
And woes would never come again te
darken people's lives.
If  I  could   be a  candidate  I'd   promise
thera should soon
Be boons for every man and child that
wished to have a boon.
I'd have disease abolished, as I think I've
Mid before.
The old ehould all grow young again and-
death would come no more.
The once who have to work should re.t
and have their pay Increased.
And  happinese should  nil  the  breast  of
every- man and beast.
I'd fhe up everything that's wrong. The
digger In the ditch
Should throw his pick away at once because I'd make lilm rich.
The Ignorant should all be wise, the
wicked slinulil be good
I'd legislate awuy the flies. Establish !
Spread sweet contentment ait about and I
fill the lund with glee.
Come   on.   folks,   swing   yowr   hnts   and
ahout!   L'prise. dear friends, for me.

Peculiar  Awctwrt IPiifvilagss  Enjoyed
by Certorei Citizens of London.
Some peculiar privileges are granted
U> London ���olBcialls by law or custom.
There are certain institutions which
cannot be interfered with. They have
survived lor aenturies. Traditions
cluster rosimd tthem, iand the bold reformer has no chance with them. Nowhere are cut-'turns and privileges
whicli have amoieitt sanction more jeal.
ously guarded ithan in the cily of
London, and none cling to their privi-
legetrtotm tenaciously than the liverymen. These privileged citizens, ol
whom there are about 7,000, have a
great deal t* de with the election ol
the lord mayor and sheriffs.
A 'privilege ttOie .-Stationers Company
enjoyed ior centuries has been taken
nwky ftom titeao. They can no longer

progresses were made in barges, .ol

The most privilege personage in the
city of London is the lord mayor. He
tates. precedence omct every subject ol
thoncrown, not einepting members of
royal family, in the "aqiuaie mile."
B^.js:,f^i admiral ol tbe port of Lon-
doDL... and he lias the privilege of receiving, the password ot the Tower ol

privilege* is to receive venison warrants, which entitle him' to l��o does
from .the royal forest* in midwinter
and. two bucks in the late summer or
autumfi. .
.Members of Parliament are not without Jbei'r specia! privileges. They vie
wi,tiv���the Ji very men in upholding them.
they claim exemption from arrest on
mil process during the Parliamentary
Rttjsioil or. for a period of 40 days before and after. Members of the House
of-Xorls also have this right, and peeresses may put forward the claim.
But the most novel privilege is claimed by Lord Forester, who has in liis
possession a grant of the time of Henry VIII.. "giving to John Forester,
l(sq., of Watling street, County Salop.
Uie privilege of wearing his hat in
lhe royal presence."
Several  noblemen  to-day  make ac-
Itanowledgment of the privileges given
f.ottheir ancestors which they enjoy in
J-),*  shape of  rent  service.    In some
cstee tha rent services were nl a singular character.    For" the privilege of
hoMioS   Stratlifieldsnye  the  Duke   of
Wellington presents n flag to the sovereign every   year,   ami  he   holds   ths
state on this condition.   The fliig is
displayed at Windsor Castle. Fur hold?
ing  Blenheim the Duke of Marl bor-
'iU2h performs a similar service. Thii
privilege  dates  from   the  lime   when
t'he  land  beloncrej   to  the   sovereign,
xho niH'le grunts  to his rubles, wlio
n return had to render service which
>ften tonic tlie form of providing men

Probably tlie most peculiar form of
rent s.Tviee is'rendcred by ^ir George

Must Dodge the Ants.
The extension of the Cape t->-Cairo
Railroad is now proceeding from lluni-
keia.to Elizabethville, a stretch of
evi-ral hundred miles over a plain
varied only by the enormous ant-hills,
whicii in some canes rise to a height
*il 60 Jeet. In tearing down one of
these ant-hills the greatest care muat
be oxercised or the ants will attack
\h* dijapoilers of their home and make
it very uncomfortable for a time. In
.oio-s instances these hills have been
nade use of as observatories by the
jiijveyors who arc conducting the
*ork. A very comfortable hut was
oui.t on the top of the hill, with steps
out in tlte sides to afford an easy access to the top. When the ii.torior of
the hill had been cleaned out it wai
inntU' use of as a dark room by the
photogrpaher of the expedition for developing his plat's and making prints.
Preventing a Collision.
When warships are steaming in fleet
lormatirin through log ,t become ne-
^���ssary to prov.de some marking by
mo��iis of wllich '.be vessels mny main-
ain their places in I.n. uhd i.t the
Icslr-ii distance from each oth'r. The
usual method adopted hy Br.tish Hee s
whon caught in a fog is the trailing of
a huay in the water behind each ves-
m. This buay makes a flapping noise,
w'hfch is easily heard by the lookout
tin thn ship following as well as leaving'a wake discernible to the eye.
A Footstool Church.
Mr. Raymond Unwin told a storv re.
lating to the building of St. John's
Church, South square, Westminster.
The architect, lie said, wus reputed to
have worried Queen Anne about the
design. Her majesty, at length losing
patience, kicked her footstool over
and remarked in anger, "Build it liko
that!" Tho architect fulfilled the royal
wishes, and the church was built as
it staiuls to-day ��� with the corners
protruding upward like the lour legs
of a stool.
Snowsho* Rabbits.
The big snowsho* rabbit or northern hare ol Arctic Canada is something oi a dresser. It wears a white
ooat in winter and a gray die in summer, the better to conceal itself from
lis enemies by looking ag the giound
looks in the two seasons.
