 i,.  -Cr;Of?FA; B.Ctl^y ���������?!  SUBSCRIPTION $1 A YEAR  IN ADVANCE  Published in the Interests of Greater Vancouver.  ~< ;t'-'  > *j<'.\  VOLUME III  H. H. Stevens, Editor.  VANCOUVER. British Columbia, SEPTEMBER 1, 1911.  No. 17  NORTH VANCOUVER  <������}*******************.:>**** *********<-**************** **************************.  l\ The Last. Great Seaport of the Pacific Coast  ���������Brief Sketches of Many of Its Leading  Enterpirses.  Enthusiastic visitors have characterized North  l\ Vancouver as the Oakland of tlie Pacific.    This  |}l comparison  is unfair to North  Vancouver, inasmuch as it implies the suggestion immediately that  jjjj North  Vancouver's position  is a secondary one,  in the same manner that has given Oakland .subordinate rank to that enjoyed by the wonderful  eity of Sau Francisco.   North Vancouver is fortunately situated, so much so that it is merely a  question of a short time until the city will be competing actively with all of the remaining Pacific  Coast ports for the commercial aud shipping supremacy to which her geographical position and  natural advantages give the city a just aud valid  claim.  North Vancouver is situated upon the north  [j shore of llumml Inlet, the greatest natural harbor in the world. Already the eity is possessed of  two excellent shipbuilding plants; a harbor of  magnificent depth, splendidly sheltered, easy of  /access and equipped with every facility for the  provision of huge docks and wharves. The waterfront in North Vancouver is probably the finest  upon the American continent and ean readily  ������ accommodate auy and all classes of shipping re-  Igardless of the draught of the respective vessels.  [ At the present time North Vancouver has a  [population in excess of eight thousahd. Six years  [ago it was less than one thousand, and there is  inot the slightest doubt but that the population  [will increase in even greater proportion in the  nyears to come, for North Vancouver is now be-  l^ihning to realize the extent of her enormous potentialities aud to act accordingly. The city has  [exceptional educational advantages, social and fra-  [ternal life is a prominent factor in the making of  |the city's greatness and in addition the city is ex-  esptionally well provided with churches'and religious institutions of every denomination.  North Vancouver is duly registered as a city  ,n# is governed by a progressive and alert mayor  aldermanic board.   She has the finest water,  jpply on the continent, the source of supply being Lynn Creek, a mountain stream prolific in  iving the citizens water of marvelous purity and  Knrivalled pressure.   The council have this year  installed a main drainage system on up-to-date  mitary principles at an initial cost of something  J ike a quarter of a million dollars, thus insuring  itarfect sanitation in tbe future.   The municipal  pre brigade has also been reorganized, a new tire  tall built and high pressure cast iron fire mains  Installed.   Chief Turner, an efficient ffre fighter,  ind formerly assistant chief of the city of Calvary, is in charge of the department, so that ample  provision has been made for the protection of  >perty from the ravages of fire.  The council are now engaged in the permanent  rading of numerous streets, avenues and thoroughfares, and the estimated total expenditure  |.pon public and miscellaneous municipal improvements during the present year is in excess of one  pillion-dollars. - The-city also operate their- own-  jrry system between Vancouver and North Vancouver.    A recent acquisition to the ferry fleet  North Vancouver No. 3, a splendid steamer,  lonstructed at a cost of over one hundred and  ixty thousand dollars.   The assessment in North  Vancouver at present is slightly- over twenty-one  million dollars and the rate of taxation twenty  Mils.  At present North Vancouver's industrial life is  je presented by two splendid shipbuilding plants,  firm of, boilcrmakcrs and general engineers, a  ish and door factory and a number of sawmills  Situated on the waterfront and������also in the moun-  lins adjacent to North Vancouver.   Any indus-  ������y requiring the use of a great waterfront for the  purposes of maritime commerce, manufacturing  id shipping, will find North Vancouver a most  Ivantagcous city in which to consider the es-  iblishment of such an enterprise.   In addition to  ie industrial concerns above referred to there are  Numerous other miscellaneous business and com-  iercial houses, banks, financial institutions, holds, excellcut newspaper and kindred enterprises  jntial to the advancement and progress of auy  fc've community,  A three-cent fare is'current for regular pass-  lgers traveling on the ferry between Vancouver7  fod North Vancouver and the service is prompt,  nnmunication will shortly be established .with  incouver by rail, as it has been definitely au-  >unced by the Burrard Inlet and Tunnel Com-  iny that work will be executed without further  play; in  the  construction ���������-.'���������of7 a  gigantic  bridge  bross the second narrows of TBurrard Inlet,   The  ?at Canadian railway systems are also prepar-  \g to enter North Vancouver, it being authorita-  fvely stated that the Canadian Pacific, Canadian  forthem  and. Grand  Trunk Pacifific  are  now  isiiy engaged upon the task of securing entrance  ; the city of North Vancouver.   The Vancouver,  Testminster and Yukon railway have already se-  thei.r franchise, likewise they have surveyed  right-of-way and concluded all other prelim-  |ary arrangements preparatory to entering North  incouver.   This railway development can mean  ii" one thing, and that is that the great translation corporations of the continent have ree-  znized the strategic position held by North Van-  fuver for the control of a.great trade area.   This  (Continued on Pa������e 4)  *  *  ������  Reciprocity and the Consumer  Liberals Say "Higher Prices to Producer���������Lower Cost to Consumer   .  ���������An Impossible Argument  '������  *  t iHfj to the consumers in the urban districts that reciprocity in natural products t  X would result it. an- immediate reduction iv the cost of living, and at the same time *  jfc in the rural and farming districts they are preaching that it will result in the pro- X  jr ducer of foodstuff's getting a higher price for their products. The fallacy of $  X such arguments were exposed by quoting from the government's oivn com pilar $  Buffalo them in Toronto, highi  $ or St. Johns, higher in Minneapolis than in Winnipeg, etc.  ','. seen that the consumer of the urban districtswan expect no benefit front the treaty. *  It tvas also pointed out that when reciprocity was in force between 1854 and'f  ;: 1866 that, while the farmer got more for his produce at that time, it teas more %  ;; largely due to the fact of the' Crimean war in Russia and to the civil war in Amer- Z  ;; ica. It is always admitted that produce or foodstuffs is dearer in time of war. In *  ;: the case of the American civil war this was emphasized, by the large number of t  ' farmers who left the farms and served in the armies.        ' ' \\  But aside from this fact we must remember that facilities of transportation ',:  Halifc  Tims it will at once be  result of the abrogation of the. treaty of 1854^6 by America was. no doubt, detri- 7>  ;; mental to Canada, hut it resulted ultimately in the instigation of the "National Pol- '.'.  ;; icy" which has done so much to develop our ;cotyitry.^/ , ,        -      ,.,-' <  Following rapidly upon tlie abrogation <df' thettrcaty by America cami^confederation.kthe construction of, the C. P. B. atydth/ inter colonial-, which {gave *tUe'  j; whole country such an impetus that never si'ncf have we suffered because of lack tip  ;; free access to the American market; and tc8pec^tyu'^^  ;; time. In Canada everything w prosperous. Our home market was never better  ;; and our European trade increasing, while south of the line they are experiencing a t  ;; reverse more drastic than any of recent years. Production in ma/nnfaeturies is be- t  ;; ing curtailed, the railways have "LAID OFF" 80,000 men in order to cut down ex- $  ;; penses, and all the leading American cities report trade as dull. The New York $  ;; capital stock exchange has recently set new low records and the whole tone of the %  \; commercial and financial centers of the United States is extremely pessimistic. Then %  ;: why should we exchange our present highly satisfactory fiscal policy for one tvhich j  ;; can only result in advantage to America? ������������  Viewing the question from the farmers'*standpoint, we should remember that **  :^'-  ;;. when the Northwest farmers went to Ottawa they asked for abolition' of the tariff  ;; on farm impliments, shelf hardware, leather goods, etc. Now this has not been j.  ;; granted and therefore needL not be discussed at this time, but reduction of tariff If  ;; or free admission of natural products has been granted or agreed to by Sir Wilfred X  ;; and his party. The farmer is told he will get more for his wheat, his cattle, etc., on '  ;; the American market.  iVo������������ it is generally accepted that Liverpool sets the price of wheat the world  ;; over.~ Itisalso well known that the large American flour mills MUSThave our :������  ;; No. I hard wheat in order to mix with their softer grades and to produce the best f  ;; quality of flour. At present we ship our surplus to Europe. If we lower the tariff Y  ;; a lot of this would be diverted to south of the line to go to the American mills, the y  ; j result would be that the price would be readjusted by the quantity which would J  ;��������� reach the American market, and any supposed advantage which now may exist r  ������ would soon be wiped out. I  f Again, if the wheat is shipped south to the American mills, they would have jr  %the by-prod{itets,bran, shorts, etc. These bring a Mgher price in thestates than in *  $ Canada at present, but if we discourage milling north of the line we will soon J  % be compelled to buy baek our own by-products at an enhanced price. .f.  x Or, carry the argument still further. We are told we can sell our cattle at a &  higher figure in America than in Canada. Why? Because the American uses 'k  every vest age of the beast in some way oother. They first get the beef, they use ������  the offal for fertiliser, they use the hide for boots and shoes, laees, etc.; they make "  x buttons of the hoofs and horns and everry part of the animal is successfully util-  % ized. But on this side we have neglected many of these adantages and only kill  $ a beef to get the meat and possibly save the hide. No wonder Uncle Sam can  X pay more. But is it good policy to increase the difficulties in remedying the error  $ of the past, or would it not be wiser to so centralise our business that we can bene-  $ fit ]by the use of these by-products. ������  J In Mr. Borden's platform is a provision for the establishment of "chilled  \ meat plants." This would enable us to make use in an economical manner of all  | by-products and thus build up our leather industry and other allied businesses.  J There seems to be no room for argument against- thc position taken in this qucs-  % tion by Mr. Borden and Ids followers; it is soimd and decidedly in the interest of %  jr. Canadian btisiness and Canadian citizenship. i j  ^X>.X--X-^>H">>X*������H*->*H~H-H*4' 4-t���������!

Young,1  minister of education, stated that the new university would be opened by 1913.  The occasion of the opening of this school was  made a "red letter day" in the history of education in South Vancouver. The Hon. Richard McBride was present and gave an inspiring address;  he was accorded a royal reception and presented  with an illuminated address by the trustees and  citizens of South Vancouver.  TDr. Young spoke of the wonderful development  of the municipality and stated that ten years ago  the department were on the point of closing the  school in the district but that now there were 2500  pupils where at that time there were only eighteen.  His announcement that the university would be  ready by 1913 was greeted with a great burst of  applause.  Reeve Pound spoke briefly of the work accomplished and complimented the teaching staff on  their efficiency.  The other speakers were Aid. Jas. Ramsay, Dr.  Brydon-Jack, Mr.. Hodgson and Mrs. Lownly,  who spoke feelingly on patriotism.  One of the pupils, Miss Wirinifred Laley, also  contributed by singing in a sweet, clear voice  "The Bed.r'Wfciie and Blue."  THE HOUSING PROBLEM  By Harry Bragg, Editor of Municipal Journal  It is glibly admitted that the rising generations0'  of citizens determine the future of the nation, and  it is also granted that the environment in childhood'  largely forms the character.  Following on this line of thought, one is forced  to admit that the housing problem is oue which  lies not only at the base of conditions today, but  which leaves an indelible impress on the future.  It has been truly said that "one-half the world  1 does not know how the other half lives.''   But this  absence of knowledge does not prevent the results -  of living conditions in one half affecting the other.  The family living in a well-appointed house on ft  fine street may be ignorant of conditions in the  slums, but this does not prevent contagious diseases spreading from the slums to the handsome  houses. Further, the extra cost of the slums in"  police, magistrates and jail; in boarl of health expenses and hospitals; in insane asylums; in kindred expenses, due largely to bad housing conditions���������all these rest upon the taxpayer in his flne  house and add to his expenses.  The financial loss to the country is beyond count,  for the value of a citizen, able-bodied and clear-  minled, cannot be easily reckoned.  There are the lower grounds for grappling with  the housing problem, but the humanitarian side is  infifinitely superior in its claims.  What right has any citizen to live in comfort,  and in healthy conditions while his fellow citizens  are, sweltering in,.unsanitary and overcrowded,  rooms f There are societies for preventing cruelty  to.animals, but children can be brought up i%ignorance and filth with impunity.  Mr: Thomas Adams, .the British Local Government expert,1 state's that there are slums in Canada  that are worse than .any in old London, and Dr.  Ilodgetts, medical adviser to the commission 6f  conservation, in an article on "Unsanitary Houtr  ing,"-recently published by the commission,'tftowt  ;  ^by picture ir* well as hy dcRcription, the terriW* w ^  conditions now existing in some cities of the Do- 7  minion.   And these conditions are not confined to  the large cities.   Many of the smaller places ean  show a full share, and even country villages have  dwellings in which a good farmer would not bouse  cattle.  Dr. Ilodgetts quotes cases of forty-three occu-   ,  pants in five rooms and twenty-four in one room.  Bolton Hall in a recent address describes how,  to kill mosquitoes, he poured coal oil on a bolow  every time it filled up with rain, unti his little  child, watching his repeated efforts, asked why  he did not fill up the hollow, and from this simple  illustration, shows how the only cure for slums  is to fili up the spaces they occupy with something better.  Of course, some of this overcrowding is found  among the foreigners who are coming to Canada,  and a casual observer might say it could not be  helped���������they like it and can only be educated very  _slowly_to_ better Jdeas.       But here is where the municipal authorities  must interfere. If people do not want, or do not  know how to live in a decent, sanitary way, tbey  must be compelled to do so. They cannot be allowed to be a menace and a nuisance to their fel-  loow citizens.  One solution of the overcrowding is the transportation, rapidly and cheaply, of the workers  from the factories to the outlying suburbs. This.  has received a good deal of attention in Great  Britain, and deservedly so. Inducements to get  the masses to live in more open and healthier surroundings are worth a great deal, and they react  on the congested areas satisfactorily.  The Single Taxer claims that his pet idea would  brins about the desired reformation, and it certainly tends in that direction. But the main  remedy is to prohibit slums and unsanitary conditions by law, .and then see that the laws are  enforced. Most cities have building by-laws which  aim at good housing, but they are often not definite enough, anl very often arc not enforced. It  is satisfactory to see that Toronto is grappling  practically with the question of unsanitary houses  "and,,that no less than 400 have been condemned,  and the owners ordered to put them into proper  condition or close them up. This is the proper  attitude: and yet it -may cause hardship to the ���������  tenants thus thrust out upon the- street to seek  for the cheap dwellings7 which.are.so hard to find.  The problem is a diflficulf one. .and in some cases  the only solution may be. as in many places is  Europe, for the municipality either to build, or  encourage others to build small dwellings with a  rent low enough for the small wage earner to pay.  We British people proudly claim that the basis  of national life/and one cause of its greatness,  is the home. What idea of home is there in a back  alley, with garbage festering in the heat, rooms  with no light and only a pretence of ventilation "  and the tiny rooms crowded with people ? Is it  any wonder that drunkenness is on the increase?  What a relief to get away from such a home to the  brightly-lighted saloon, or the cheap music hall.  If homes are the foundation of our Empire, let  us see that t.he foundation is firm and enduring. '  not a rotten sham that-will lead to the ruin awl  decay of the nation.y  A _ \  - rfAl  : A  A     "'-^,.1  7 ��������� -.  '"y I  7- -Ail  . t > -,<'.  d7- -1-.**--" ".If*".

(A Reminiscence.)
According to the varied newspanei
accounts which one daily reads of the
approaching,Durtar'to be . held in
-.ndia in a few months, former Dur-
iars are to suffer by contrast with
the glitter and gorgeous magnificence
jc the coming Duirbar, which is to take
place in honor of His Majesty -King
George and Queen Mary.
All I can say is, if the coming event
eclipses the last "Durbar," it will have
"to go some," as we sometimes express it out here.
Amongst the  many  gorgeous  spectacles witnessed during the last Dur-
r at Delhi, in  honor    of our late
King's accession to the throne as King
���i   Lnglavid  and   Emperor    of  India,
lothing  could  approach    for  glitter,
grandeur or glory the State entry of
over    a  hundred    picked    elephants
carrying on  their massive backs the
noble representatives of British power
in  India,  and  no one  who    had  the
honor and privilege of witnessing that
magnificent pageant is ever likely to j
forget it as long as life' and memory
Starling from the Delhi railway station, this truly unique and. oriental
procession wended its-, way slowfy
through the densely crowded streets
packed with a seething though orderly
mass of living humanity. Surging
hither and thihter trying to obtain a
fietter vantage point to: view the pro-
bianding with a friend so close to
i.he, procession as to le alio to touch
the elephants as they amlled past
with1 their costly burdens, L had> a
splehdidview and simply drank in the
musual scene.
Seated on the first pair of elephants
were Lord Curzon, the then Viceroy
of India, and his late wife", lady Curzon, the Vicerene, who returned the
salutations and homage of the multitude as they passed; next in order of
precedence' came the Duke ; and
Duchess of Connaught, to represent
the late King and Queen Alexandria;
then the Grand Duke and Duchess of
Hesse, and following these in order of
precedence-and rank all the'Rajahs,
Ranees, Begunes and native rulers of
various states In India and Burmah.

"That will pmimbly be next witb

"Sterilized, of course." v
The   first   baby   drew   himself   up

Says the .writer: "The  probabilities are tbat you will have the father long after the children are  gone, and If you live long enough, you will find' out how little use the child  bas for your selfish and passionate love for him after he has grown up and  married and become a parent himself. The kind, too-Indulgent parents  who have given all they had to their children, expecting their care and  attention in old age, are taking a great risk."  Most people will agree that while everything reasonable should be done  to give children a good start ln life, It ls neither to the Interests of the  parents nor to the children that the former should In tbeir old age find  themselves dependent upon their children's generosity, through having  apent all their income, year after year, upon the family. Relations are  likely to be of a far happier character If in their declining years they enjoy  complete Independence of everything except natural affection.  ���������t������fr.H������|.l>iW4-M"l"W"l"MlH"M M' l<* *  **9******>l 1*****1 It I M'l'llf  Willoughby's Cash Grocery:;  Cor, llth Ave, and St. Catherines St. Phoie Fitnawt 1321  FRESH GROCERIES.

When these small  particles fall upon a* moist surface,'  which furnishea suitable food, they al  once multiply and soon cover the entire surface.

Some housewives prefer tlie  wide-mouthed Jars that sea) without  rubbers.  In selecting the fruit for canning,  all imperfect fruit should be discarded. Cut out the bad plftcea and use  them for Jelly, marmalades, etc. The  flavor of fruit is not developed till it  ie~perfectly riper but fermentation begins so soon after tbl spolnt is reached that It is much better to use fruit  ��������� little under-ripe for cannlnng.  Fruit should be canned as soon after picking as possible. If It I* Impossible to can It Immediately, it  should be kept in a cool place away  from the flies.'

BACKWARD CHILDREN  When you need a cold cloth, and  haven't ice. try wringing a cloth out  of cold water and shaking it briskly In  the air. The rapid evaporation will  give you aa almost ice-cold compress. [ only patience Is needed.  Children who are dull or stupid are  sometimes a cause of great irritation  to a brisk, busy mother, and are apt  to be left very much in the background.  ' But, as a matter of fact, special attention should always be given to a  backward child. To begin with, some  physical weakness, such as slight deafness, bad sight, Ill-developed heart, or  anaemia, may be causing tbe little one  to appear dull and stupid. Sometimes  adenoids will make a boy or girl seem  almost entirely lacking in intellect.  It is always wise to consult a doctor  if a child seems extra backward.

The ceremony was'  performed ln the presence ot friends;  Mr. and Mrs. .Thomson intend to reside In Grandview.  be quickly developed along railway transportation lines and that the eity is destined soon to become a great railway as ���������well- as a marine center.  The citizens of North Vancouver anticipate a  veritable   commercial   and   industrial   revolution  with the completion of Ihe Panama canal.    This  great waterway when opened to the vessels of the  world will have the effect of developing a phenomenally large volume of trade and traffic on the  Pacific coast.    Ready access to British and European markets will thus be afforded and the result' will be the creation of a great international  highway  upon   which   will   travel  the  merchant  marine of practically every known country.    It  must naturally follow, then, that there must be  an outlet.   All. of this commerce'' cannot hope to  find accommodation within the limited wharfage ������������������  area "now  available in the various Pacific Coast  ports of prominence.    Much of this territory is'  now restricted and overcrowded and eanwot7 possibly expand in order to. make provision for an  increase of maritime commerce.'' A great proportion of the harbor surface in various Pacific seaports is also held by vested interests, either for  personal .use at a later date or for future sale at  a prohibitive figure to such interests its simply  ���������cannot do business without "this harbor area, and  must consequently pay the price demanded, exorbitant though it may be. 7  Suc.h,a.condition as that above mentioned refers  particularly to soiithern 'ports.  /In the cities of  San Francisco, Portland. Seattle and Tacoma the  harbor area is limited.   At present there is room  for a slightly increased shipping accommodation,  but the increase is -woefully inadequate when compared with the demand that the opening of the  Panama canal will make upon the seaports of the  Pacific Coast.   To remedy such'a state of affairs,  and to relieve this situation, the citizens of North  Vancouver have been blessed by Providence with  Burrard  Inlet.    This magnificent harbor has  a  length of waterfront on the north side of approximately ten or twelve miles.   This area as it now  stands  can   provide   ample   accommodation   for  ocean-going vessels of any size, affording ample  opportunity for the establishments of gigantic dry-  docks, shipyards and wharves.   An area greater  even than this can be made available with very  little effort or expense, but Nature,  alone, has  provided wonderfully,, well for the handling of a  maritime traffic that is even now becoming too  great for the facilities offered by the seaports of  old and long standing.  This,, then, is North Vancouver's heritage. At  the present time a case is being prepared for submission to the Dominion government seeking to  bring about the establishment of a great national  drydock and system of wharves. It proposes to  secure the appointment of a permanent harbor  commission to regulate traffic in the harbor of  Burrard Inlet.

Such a proposal if looked upon  with faVor by the government, as it doubtless will  De, means the beginning-of an era of city building  that will outstrip the growth and development of  any city "upon the North American continent.  Thfe townsite- of North Vancouver slopes back  gently from" the shores 'of Burrard' Inlet for a distance of seven miles.   From east to west there is  an area twenty miles in length, all ,of whieh can  be utilized.- when necessary, for the rearing up of  a great city, a city that will." in point of population, within a-few years, rival any city in the Dominion of Canada or upon the-Pacific Coast.   The  population   of   North   Vancouver- hasj increased  _ sevenfold withjn the past seven years, but the city  is only in its inf ancy~of "growth as -yet-.��������� Seven-  years hence the population will again be increased  sevenfold,  by  which   time  there  will be  in  the  neighborhood of sixty thousand inhabitants within  the corporate limits of North Vancouver.    The  completion of the .Panama canal and the. building,  of a great national dock may even increase the  present population more than sevenfold, so >that  one may safely  say that the future growth of  North Vancouver may even, exceed the wildest  prediction of present-day optimists.  Building operations are- now being carried on  in North Vancouver at a rate seldom equalled in  Western Canada, but still the demand for houses,  business blocks aud office buildings is far in exeess  of thf> supply.    With all of this progress nnd advancement realty values have remained within the  ��������� boui'dx of reason and legitimate growth.   Nowhere  on the continent are there  investment   and  general ooiYimere'iil and industrial opportunities equal  I   to those offered in North Vancouver at the present  time.    Nortli  Vancouver has much  to offer,  much inde'd. and the fie'd is new. virg'n. full of  promise  aud  heavily laden  with ac.complisliment  .already achieved.  J. J.

The railway mileage  of Canada in 1867, the year of confederation, was just over 2000 miles;  in  1884 it exceeded 10,000 miles for the  first time; and stood at the close of  1910 at 24,731 miles, or a little under  the mileage of the  United Kingdom.  A recent calculation made by the statistician of the department of railways  and canals places the total outstanding capital liability of the Canadian  railway system at 283 millions sterl-  . ing;   but   subtracting  the   allowance  i made for subsidies, extinct stock, and  bond   obligation,  absorption  of  small  railroads, and lines in the construe  The,,annual report for 1910, just issued by the Montreal harbor: commissioners, throws some interesting side  lights on the development of the port  The lumber used in furniture and  car manufacture' in Canada -for 191*  was  valued  at almost- three  million  ..���������  dollars.

The victims were Miss Alexander, a  schoolmistress,   of7 Fobs,   .and     her  brother, an  engineer,  who was  ujst  home from abroad on a holiday.   Miss  Alexander went to Aberfeldy to meet  her brother, and hired a motor-car for  the return  journey  to  Foss.    While  they were descending a dangerous hill  near, the Brae of Foss. the car got out  ot control.   The driver, W. Thomson,  tried to steer round, a bend, but one of  the wheels gave way, and    the    car  dashed into a stone dyke.

There  is  first  the  Canadian   project  of a railway from Quebec to Forteau,  in  the  Straits  of  Belle  Isle, and  a  steamship  line  direct  from  there  to  England.    The royal naval surveyors  have completed the marine survey of  the straits, and they declare that the  course through the straits is so distinct and clear that,  with the  lead,  it can be followed with absolute safety  in the densest fog.    This is an ideal  route  for Canada.    Mails and  passengers could be landed at Quebec over  this course in three and a half days  from England.    It would open up a  number of delightful watering places  on the north shore of the gulf.   Two  other projects are the Galway to St.  John's line, and a line from England  to  Green  Bay,   Newfoundland.    The  millions  sterling.    To  arrive   at  the  capital liability per mile it is necessary to deduct from the total mileage  the government-railway system, representing 2250 miles, which is not represented by any capital issue, and the  liability accordingly stands at $52,361  per mile, the- lowest of any  railway  system in the world.   The distribution  by provinces of Canada's railway mileage   is   given   as   follows:     Ontario,  8230;   Quebec, 3794;  New Brunswick,  1152;  Nova Scotia, 1350;   Prince Ed-i  ward Island, 270; or for Eastern Can-'  ada, 14,796    miles;    Manitoba, 3220;  Saskatchewan, 2913;    Alberta,   1488;  British  Columbia,   1832;   Yukon.  90;  or 9643  miles   for Western   Canada.

Obviously, the company  would not carry on a campaign of this  They say that the Canadiah Pacific nature unless the proposition was bona  fide and legitimate, so there can be  no questioning of the fact that Port  Mann has been definitely and finally  chosen as the permanent terminal  point. The industrial life of Port  Mann will be given a flying start by  the establishment of their own repair  shops, an institution that will give per  manent and profitable employment to  at least five thousand men.  Among other industries already  pledged to Port Mann is the American  Car and Foundry Company. This plant  will build cars for the entire'C. N. R.  system from the Atlantic to the Pacific. It is a huge corporation and  will employ thousands of men. The  British Columbia Steel Corporation  have already surveyed the site of their  great works.

Whether this be literally true  or not, it is certain that had Vancouver not been made the terminal point  of the C. P. R., that this great city  would still be" small, perhaps only a  town, or perchance a mere village of  stumps and crooked streets. In an>  event, the C. P. R. has contributed  very materiplly to the upbuilding of  Vancouver, for without transportation  facilities a town can never hope to become a city. There must be communication with the outer world, to provide  which it is necessary that the attention of huge railway and steamship  corporations shall be attracted to the  town or village ambitious enough to  A STRANGE ACCIDENT.  An extraordinary acdident occurred  in Grosvenor Square last Saturday.   A  pair-horser hotel omnibus  was being  driven  down  Duke street  when    the  horses  took  fright.    The  driver  was  unable to stop them, and pedestrians  had to run in all directions to escape  (injury.    The horses    dashed    across j  j Grosvenor square, and the driver, see-  [ing that    a smash   -was    inevitable,  leapt from the box, receiving a severe  scalp wound.    The horses ultimately  'came  into  collision  with  some area  railings, wrecking about    twenty   or  thirty feet of the railings and part of  the coping.    They fell  12" feet or 15  feet into the area with the omnibus  on top of them, one of them  being  killed  and  the other so severely injured that it died shortly afterwards.  Fortunately there were no passengers  on the vehicle.  COUNTESS   CHARGED  ASSAULT.

Madui  united in marriage Miss Christine  Matheson. daughter of the late Mr.  John Matheson of Strome Ferrn, Ros-  shire, Scotland, and Mr. Harry Leask  ���������J* \ of Lulu Island. The bride wore a pretty pown of white crepe de chene, trimmed with real lace, and was given  away by he? brother-in-law, Mr. T.  Bradbury. She also wore a veil and  orange blossoms and carried a bouquet  of white carnations. Miss Abbie Bradbury acted as bridesmaid, dressed in  cream mull, trimmed with lace insertion and carried a bouquet of pink carnations. Mr. GreaVea of Lulu Island  acted as best man.  specting the recent appointment of Mr.  Graham as superintendent of schools  ; at a salary of $180 monthly, pr. Rob-  tinson has already informed the board  they have no authority to appoint such  an officer, and he told the delegation  that "If you had approached me with  a recommendation that Inspector of  Schools Gillies was unable to carry out  his duties, owing to the great extent of  area he is compelled to cover, I would  have appointed an assistant to aid him  in his duties, for the appointment you  bave made seems ill-advised." He  again took occasion to point out in the  most emphatic terms that Superintendent Graham will have absolutely no  power to make the smallest changes  in the personall of the staff or the  routine or grading adopted by the  youngest teacher.
