PLEASANT.  . Within the memory of many of the present resVlents of Mt.  Pleasant this district was a dense forest, traversed or:ly by the old  New Westminster road, with a few houses scattered through the.  bush and a few small stores on the roadside;'now 'thei* 3 is a population of approximately,-30.000, with large metropolitan blocks, paved  streets and all the attributes of ������_. pulsating business center.  In this issue we are endeavoring to submit to you absolute proof  of this statement of development by relating in a brief manner the  history of some of the principal business places of the <;Hill."��������� By  a careful perusal of these various brief histories, the reader will be  enabled to gain some conception of the remarkable growth of this  district during the past ten or fifteen years, and especially during  the:past five years. ���������        .  The venerable Dr. Robson had the honor of establ7shing the first  church on Mt. Pleasant, and now there are srx con (negations, and  some of the church ed'fices are among the most handsome in the  Province. The Methodist Church, under the pastorate of Rev. Lashley Hall, B.A., B.D., is located on the corner of Tenth avenue and  Ontario street, and each Sunday is filled to the doors. The Presbyterian Church, just recently completed, is situated on corner of  Quebec and Tenth, Rev. Mr. Woodside is the pasroi?, and has endeared himself to the people of Mt. Pleasant by his earnest work  among them. Across the road is the new Baptist Chnrch. which is  one of the most artistic buildings in the city, with Eev. S. Everton.  B.A.. as pastor.    ���������.'-..,.  On the corner of Broadway and Prince Edward street is St.  Michael's Anglican Church, Rev. G. II. Wilson as clergyman. On  Twelfth avenue, between Quebec and Main street, is the Roman  Catholic Church, Rev. Father McCullough. All these churches are  newly built, having been forced to enlarge their premises to accommodate their ever-increasing population.  Whereas Mt. Pleasant had no hank at all a few years ago, there  is now f|H branches in the,district. The Royal have two branches  at. Seventeenth avenue and Main street and on Seventh avenue and  Main street. The Northern Crown Bank on the corner of Broadway  :arid Siain street. The Bank of Bommeree and the Union Bank, all  of which are doing a splendid business.  A-reference to the various items in this issue will convey some  idea1 of the extent of the business and industrial interests of Mt.  B. C. ORNAMENTAL IRON & FENCE  CO.,   LTD.  MT. PLEASANI5&RESBYTERlAjjCHURCH'  wig.  RAILWAY COMMISSION.  The Railway Commission is having an exceedingly heavy session  in Vancouver. We are unable to report the proceedings to any great  extent in this issue, but will reserve our comments for a future time.  One application we wish to draw publie attention to is that of  the B. C. Electric, under the name of the Fraser Valley and Southern,  for aecess to the city, over a private right-of-way through the East  End. entering the city about First avenue and Nanaimo street, and  then following a winding course to about McLean drive and Sixth  avenue. When the approval of this route was asked of the Federal  Government, the city authorities were told by Mr. Glover of the  B. C. Electric, that it was desired to use this line to relieve the  freight traffic on the New Westminster line, leaving that line free  for passengers. This appealed to the city authorities, hence there  was no opposition given to the route. But it now transpires that  this application is for a railroad and the Company now have plans  drawn providing for another cut through the East End, similar  to the Great-Northern cut. This was objected to most stronglyby.  Aldermen MaePherson, Stevens and Enright. The matter is now  in abeyance, but we are told the Company intend to press for this  route.  The Great Northern are also objecting to the constructing of  suitable bridges over its cut at Broadway East and Lakewood  Drive.   Every effort is being made to secure this.  ALDERMAN    STEVENS.  Aid. Stevens was elected tor the  first time to the Council last January.  nt the head of the polls. He has been  a resident of Mt. Pleasant for about  eleven years and of British Columbia  for seventeen years. Although the  youngest member of the Council, he is  recognized as one of the most active.  He has always been prominent in the  advocacy of'.matters vk public interest,  and is always active in polities, being  a strong advocate of m eial and moral  reform. He is-a member of the lioard  of Health, the Water Committee, Library Board and many others.  V.   R.  TIMMS,  SIGNS.  Mr. V. R. Timms, whose business is  on Eighth avenue just east of Westminster road, holds a reputation as a  sign writer which is Provincial in its  scope.  Mr. Timms conducts a painting establishment at the above address, doing all classes of fancy work, such as  automobiles, carriages, etc., but his  sped ilty is Sign Writing. In this field  Mr. Tinmis has no superior in the city.  His workmanship- is excellent and his  pi ices low. He attends to his business and will get your job eff quickly.  For any thing in the painting line  ji:st consult Mr. Timms for a real good  job.  It has always been the policy of  this journal to encourage the establishment of industries in Vancouver.  We therefore esteem it a privilege,  indeed, to give a brief account of an  industry which is a ' great credit to  Vancouver, viz., the "B. C. Ornamental  Iron and Fence Co., Ltd."  This Company have their plant at  1705, Westminster Ave., (Main St.)  Where they manufacture ornamental  wire fencing, fire escapes, canopys,  iron fences and gates, etc. The Company has been operated for over nine  years in Ottawa and about one year  ago opened up in Vancouver at the  above address.  ST- MICHAEL'S (ANGLICAN) CHURCH  Pleasant, the stores are no longer limited in their operations, but  carry large stocks second to none in the city; in fact, everything is  pointing to the time when Main street will be the chief retail thoroughfare in the city and will be built up solidly right through Mt,  Pleasant, thus making this section of the city more central than  perhaps any other part.  Some idea of the expansion can be gained from a brief comparison in values of property. The corner of Broadway and Main  street, known as Lee's corner, was first purchased by the Methodist  Mr. A. G. McClarty is the President  of the Company, and J. L. Flanders is  the Manager. These gentlemen have  the highest reputations as business  men, and under their able manage*  ment, the business of the Company  Is growing at a very rapid pace, and  although the present quarters are  large they are proving too small for  the business now being done and the  whole plant is to be enlarged shortly  to meet this growing demand.  Another line this Company handles  is all classes of elevator work which  is proving to be a very Important  branch of their trade.  We again state that such institutions should receive the moat hearty  support of the citizens. It is Just such  concerns as this which will make a  great city of Vancouver.  Church for $1,000, and sold by them four years ago for $15,000, and  is today worth $1,500 per front foot.  Ten years ago the Morrison Block site, at corner Broadway  and Westminster road, was bought for $700, a building was erected  and the propertv sold to Morrison Bros, for $4,000. and they in turn  sold it in 1909 for $32,000, and the price is now $50,000.  What is known as the "Gore." at- the junction of Main street  and Westminster road, with large bakeshops, sold thirteen years ago  for $4,200. and is today taken off the Market at $80,000.    '  Seven years ago you could buy a 50-foot lot on Twelfth avenue  for $300. today the same property cannot be touched less than $3,000.  Lots, which sold on Lansdown and Dufferin street for $200 five years  ago. are now being sold for $10,000.  So we might continue on endlessly, with most extraordinary  comparisons. The story is a continuous one���������Vancouver is destined  to be a great eity: Mt. Pleasant is geographically in the center of  the city, and tlie time will come when many of the present prices  will look just as ridiculously low as those of ten years ago appear  at this time.  Wre have two very handsome schools on Mt. Pleasant, and as  the district is still filling up. it is quite possible that these will not  accommodate the large number of children. Excellent provision  has. however, been made by the School Board for all possible increases.  It is impossible to touch on many of the features which make  this district so attractive; it's location is the most promising of any  in the city from the standpoint of investment, and is exceedingly  convenient as a residential section, and with the splendid prospect  which lies before the eity, we are certain that Mt. Pleasant will receive its share of development.  TELEPHONE.  The various reports re the Telephone question are highly misleading to the public. There is no desire on the part of any member of the City Council to introduce a dual telephone system in this  city, if it is possible to avoid it, but. as pointed out by Aid. Stcvenn  at.'the special meeting of the Council, the present system is scandalous and the treatment of the public by the Company unbearable.  If it is possible to deal reasonably with the old Company nnd make  a new agreement in which the city's interests will be properly protected, then by all manner of means do so. but if they will not meet  us. then let i- go into the business ourselves directly or indirectly,  hut- ���������" en'������e '.ay in which the city will be in control of the situation.  WTe do not want a dual system, but we do want fair treatment,  and that is something we do not get at present. '.--,.  ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH  MT. PLEASANT METHODISf CHURCH  MT. PLEASANT BAPTIST CHURCH  m  m  msMmtm ELECTRICAL WORK.  N. Lang & Co., of 2442 Main street  (Westminster avenue), reports that  business is exceptionally good. They  ..ave several very large jobs on hand  at pr< --t-nt, among them being the  Coville Block, cn the corner of  Eleventh avenue and Quebec street, J.  3. Mathers' new block on the corner  of Eighth and Main street, the Gustaf-  ������"n block on-Granville street, and the  White block on Main street, besides  numerous smaller jobs.  This firm has been in business for  six years and, as shown by the large  number of big contracts which they  now have on hand, they have established a reputation for thoroughness  and despatch second to none in the  city.  Mr. Lang.recognized the advantage  of Mount Pleasant as a business site,  because of the lower rentals, and has  been enabled to give much more rea  sonable figures than others occupying  expensive premises down town. This  firm carries a very choice selection of i  assorted electrical fixtures, which they j  are always pleased to show. Drop in  and consult them on any electrical  work you may have.  YOUNG & THjMPSOrt.  Among the ycunger firms who have  opened up lecently, is the popular firm  of Ypung & Thompson, with a line of  fangy and staple groceries, on the corner of Twenty-sixth avenue and.Main  Street (Westminster avenue).  We dropped in on this ycung firm a  couple-pf weekB after they h?������d opsnel  up, and they report to us that already  u.ey i-ie coing -a whale of a business."  It is delightful to m-.et such enterprising and optimistic business men. They  are just, the type of men that are bound  to make a success. As an illustration  of their enterprise, they induced Mr.  Cutler, one of the best known butchers  on the Hill, to open a branch butcher  shop in their building, thus combining  their business efforts to make a success,  TRIMBLE & NORRIS.  The name of Trimble is so ,well  known on Mount Pleasant and  throughout the city generally that the  merest mention of it will bring forth  the most favorable comment. Frank  Trimble, born in Cumberland, England, has been a resident of Mount  Pleasant for over twenty years. For  seventeen years he operated a meat  business here, but recently has been  identified with the popular realty firm  of Trimble & Norris.  Mr. Daniel Norris was born in Essex, England, and has been a resident  of British Columbia for fourteen  years, being connected with the C.P.R.  during most of that time, leaving them  to enter into partnersmp as above.  Their business is situated at the  corner of Broadway and Westminster  Road. They handle Real Estate,  Loans, Insurance, etc., and are rapidly  building up a splendid connection.  This was not found difficult owing to  -the long residence of both partners in  the  Province.  ���������!*���������1*^,������t*^>,^<S,*C**������v^,t*-tt,*^,'I*���������K*,2,���������������,*t,4,***t$>G^  *  THE   RACKETT.  ."the   cheapest   place  jthey undoubtedly are.  the year 1905 at the corner of Sixth  avenue and Main street with a general stock of "nick-nacks," everything  of  general  use  for  the  home   ar.d   a  A. HILKER & SON.  Perhaps one of the best indications  ot the lemarkable. growth of Mount  Pleasant is to be found in the history  of the business of A. Hilker & Son,  2334-38 Westminster Road, between  Seventh and Eighth avenues.  Scarcely two years ago Messrs.  Hilker ������ Son came to Mount Pleasant  and opened up business with a Hue of  General Dry Gocds, Dress Goods, Modi's  Furnishings,. Boys' Clotning, Fancy  Goods, etc^ Their original stock wis.  .not very large but it soon becirrie evident to Mr. Hilker that he would have  to increase it, and this he has been  steadily doing ever since, until today  they have one cf the choicest and most  complete stocks iii the City.

Mr. Lee has personally cperatel the bu?iresS[ for over  eight years, while previous to that  date the same business was ���������-perated  by such well-known rr.^v. ?.- Mr. Des-  Brisay. The stcre in -xty-h Mr. Lee  carries cn his bi7"''ve?s" is ?:fip.te"  at 2425 Main street, just -fTth of the  corner of Broadway. Who- Mount  Pleasant was only a strugvlin^ suburb of Vancouver, this busi-^-s wn.?  can-fed cn with a thoroughly up-to-  the-mark stock of Groceries. Prov'  ! sibns and fruits, etc., thus showing  j the absolute contider.ee of the pro-  jrr'etrr in bis l^cn.rirn. It is such men  as Mr. Lee who bui'd un a ekv: Ihcv  are not transient, shifting here and  there, hut they wisely chcose a kcation p.ud then bend every effort to  make that city and their neighborhood  a successful one.  Net   cnly   has   Mr.   Lee   been   suc  cessful in his grocery business, but he  showed his faith in'"Mount Pleasant  still further, by investing practically  all his'surplus' in Mount Pleasant  realty. Amcng his holding is 115J by  132 feet on the corner of Broadway  ard Main street (Westminster avenue), on which he is now erecting a  large five-story block, which wlllj be  cne of the most substantial and modern > the city. Mr. I.ee was the first  to attempt a large block on Mount  Pleasant, but since he has taken.the  initiative there have been a number  cf permits taken out and next season  premises to be a busv.oneJn_the7build-^^  ing line.  Mr. Lee is prominent, in public affairs, beirg a leading member of the  I iberal Executive of the city for many  yerrs. He is alwsvg active and Interested in civic matters.  In spite cf his splendid achievements in the realty line, Mr. Lee is not  rtg!ect:'rg his grocery business, which  he views as the fcuntain head of his  foitur.es. and with a most competent  and ccui te'nis st^.ff of clerks he is in  a position to cater to the uicst fastidious of hcus.ev. ives.

H. Carson. He  nandies a tull line of staple and fancy  groceries, meats, vegetables, fruits,  tobacco candy etc. The business wss  formerly under the management of Mr.  A. Maaean but was taken over about  one year ago by Mr. Carson.  Our interview with Mr. Carson was  most interesting and instructive. He  seems to have a good grasp of what  sound business principles are, we can  do no better than to quote his own  words. He states: "You may say for  me that the grocery business is not a  bargain   business���������honesty   and   fair-  dealing excludes the possibility of  making a bargain store out of the  table necessaries of life. The honest  grocer cannot sell an aiticle below  cost and get even on someLliing else.  The housekeeper who has her. family  grocer is the happiest in all the city.  She can trust him for quality, weight  and price, and can depend on ��������� being  equally well served, whether she herself does the buying, or senas hei  baby. That is the kind of. grocer:  you will find at the 'Marquis' everj  day in the year."  The foregoing is sound philosophy  and we meiely recommend that every  person who buys groceries (and whr.  dees not) should ponder it well.  In a recent issue of this journal we  ; announced the welcome news that a  1 furniture business, of large dimensions was to be opened up on Mount  Pleasant. We were not mistaken and  the proof of our assertions may be  seen in the "Edgar Furniture Co.," of  2245 Main street (Westminster avenue.) Two carloads of most modern  designs in furniture have already  been received and is now being placed in shape for suitable display. This  furniture ccmes direct from the factory and Mr. Edgar has assured us  that his prices will be an eye-opener  to the people of Vancouver. The Arm  has found it necessary to build an  idditicn to the rear of their premises  [to accommodate the large stcck they  are carrying.  They will handle a complete line of  up-to-d&te furniture, carpets and house  furnishings and are in a position to !  meet tbe demands of the most exacting purchaser in the way of select i  house furnishings and are also specially equipped to handle expeditiously large orders for Rooming Houses  or Apartment Houses at prices which  will bear the closest investigation.  The proprietors, Messrs. W. E. Ed-  ger and W. H. Edger, are men of very  wide experience in the furniture business. They come here from the East  where they have been conducting a  very extensive furniture business, but  recognizing the future of Vancouver,  and especially of Mount Pleasant,  they determnied that this was the  place for them. They are most energetic and progressive business men,  of splendid personal appearance and  address, and most courteous mariner.  We predict a most brilliant future for  this business, and feel certain that  under the able and experienced management of Mr. Edger, Mount Pleasant will be able to boast of one of  the most thoroughly complete furniture establishments west of Winid- j  peg.

Pleasant  Dry Goods House" is another striking  illustration of what may be accomplished by an enterprising experienced  young business man.  Mr. F. A. Bingham established this  business about three years ago at the  junction of Westminster Aye, and  Westminster Road. Shortly afterwards he was burned out, but not  a bit discouraged by this catastrophy,  he at once opened up on Broadway,  Just a little west of the Avenue.  While in these premises his business  grew at a tremendous pace and he was  forced to seek more commodious quarters, and is.nowjpecupyingthestore at  the corner of Eighth Ave. and Westminster Ave. The new premises have  magnificent show rooms upstairs  which are neatly fitted out with easy  chairs for the comfort of the ladies  in their shopping, also making, a delightful spot where one may rest or  ..meet a friend. No effort is spared in  providing for the convenience and  comfort of the customer. One of the  i rules of. this.-firm is that members of  the staff must at all times treat the  customers as their invited guests, this  has added greatly to the prestage and  pc������:.larity of the nous's.  Mr. Bingham has had ��������� many years  experience in the    business,    having  been identified- with spine ..of the largest dry-goods houses ,in the Dominicr  in the capacity cf buyer^ and as sales  man.    This   experience, enables   Mr  Bingham  to' buy  to   very;..,.gr$at  advantage and this advantage^ is handed  on to the customer in Reduced piice.7  Mr.  Bingham  attributes  the  remari  abfe  success  of  his. business  to  h:  adherance to the principle t>f st������dyii>;.  the  people's, needs   and   making   hi  store   essentialy   the   peoples'   stort  His  determination,  push  and'i; elf erg .  has dene much to place ^his establishment  in the forefront and  it  ta-da.  holvS a very enviable position amon;  the "Dry Gcods Houses" of the Province.  The increasing responsibility of his  ever expanding business induced Mr.  Eir.gham to share its burdens,with a  partner in the person of Geo. S.  Wcoley, Esq.. who is also a thoroughly  competaut and experienced dry-goods  man.

About five years ago a small bakery  and confectionery business was started under the firm name of "The  Woman's Bakery." The high quality  of their goods soon made them famous  and orders and patrons poured Into  the little store in such numbers that  it was a daily ccurrence to be" completely sold out leng before the day  was oyer. Th:s remarkable development necessitated larger ��������� quarteis,  Ahich were obtained at the corner of  Sixth avenue .and Main stieat, with'  3." commodious bake-house at 131  Sixth avenue east, and whatjwas orig-  nally a. small business with,no delivery, waggons has grewn until ;now it is  .,;Jp.e second largest in'the City, with  ., large numt.e; of delivery waggons  :ept busy delivering their products.  _ The,.whcle7 credit,J'Qr_thi.s e\pansix  s due to, the "Quality" cf their go ids.  their bread, as.we have already stat-  id, soon beccme farcbus. and the confectionery is not less so.

Mc-  Nair, the President of the Dominion  (Glazed Cement Pipe Co., Ltd., was a  most satisfactory one. '       ���������  The industry was established^* on  Front St. a year or two ago, and since  its inauguration has made tremendous  strides. During the past year it was  found necessary to open another factory in Peachland, B. C, bcth factories  are working full capacity and will be  enlarged as rapidly as pcr.sible in  order to cope with the growing demands for cement products, especially  in glazed pipes. They employ only  "White Labor." This is a feature  which we wou!d especially emphasize,  as every such industry is a distinct  acquisition to the city. They will in a  short time be employing a very large  staff of workmen.  Space will not permit of a full description of the plant and the method  used in the manufacture of the cement  pipes, we can only say that a visit  to the plant will amply repay the time  spent. The company have been successful in obtaining a large contract  from the city to supply a minimum of  ?70,000 worth of four to twenty-four  inch pipe. They h?.ve also tendered  on mrother large ccr. tract which has  not yet been av.ardel but expect to  secure this also. They have manufactured pipe as large as 30 inches for  the city and are now making arrangements for installing dou'ble machinery  and increasing the storage capacity  greatly.  Mr. McNair tells us that cement  sewer pipes are in great demand in all  parts of the world, because of their  superiority -over clay pipes. They are  much stronger and require no.. re?  enforcing when laid. .-.They; also, get  better with age, a quality peculiar to  cement. Paris, France, has over 300  miles of cement sewers. Millwaukee  has 200 miles and are continuing its  use.   Many other cities, too numerous  to mention,   also use it with   great  satisfaction.  Mr. Jas. A. McNair, the President of  the Company, is a well known local  capitalist. It is largely due to his  wise supervision that this new industry has been established here and  great credit is due him for his foresight and enterprise.  Thos. McGillivray, city engineer of  Duluth, Minn., says:  "Experience has shown that any  vitrified  pipe   in   use   here   for   more  than 20 years is cracked anil Iii very  poor condition; ' whereas concrete  pipe, Catch basins, etc., which have  been ia use ui- mat peiiod or over  are just as gocd to-day as when they  weie put in."
