Utility and aesthetics unite in demanding that  this unsightly source of contention shall be transformed into a city asset without unnecessary  delay. Who of our readers can give the best  solution to the problem? Citizen^ should give  this matter immediate attention so that the best  possible disposition may be made.  Several Suggestions.  It has been said that it should be filled. This  is impracticable even if desirable. The expense  would be out of all proportion to the benefit.  Time and millions of money would be expended  to do what may not be even desirable. Cheaper  and more satisfactory disposition may be made of  it. Nature has given it to Vancouver. It can  be converted into a source of revenue. .  Donate It to Corporations.  Some have favored donating it to wealthy corporations to be utilized at will with the hope that  the burden of expense of converting it into a revenue producing factor would be lifted from the  shoulders of the city and placed upon the broad  shoulders of money-makers with the result that  the city would incidentally reap large benefit  from the improvements. In such event the corporations would grow rich at the city's expense.  Wisdom suggests keeping it as city property. ���������  Make Deep Waterway.  It has been argued that the bed of False Creek  might be narrowed and dredged so as to convert  it into a deep waterway from English Bay to  Burrard Inlet.   This is feasible and worthy care  ������*9&**A fJb&yj^-������^&LMi  '{.i^4^Mi&^^ "''M'^% ���������v**^-.  w*j^?A'J^***'W;aT'*Mri ���������iVK^tw^fa^veff^T\}tlSiS!l^^ "*Jl*g������gfiif  3B"*SSt3  ' vej* WitH a visit this we^/ ^e w������s kept tift]|pi$|^ ^  refXXek^X^x^^Se^o^ I: ^silltw much goo4 to our cororowwt^  potent writers.

Wliat is required is a suitable site close to the heart of the City.  ' \        That the city should willingly grant this, goes without question.  As a city, we !!  j; have.received from this Department the greatest asset we have, Stanley Park.   The  ������������������ JVlilitia could, if they so desired, construct a drill hall, or clear a parade ground in  ������������������Stanley Park, without asking the city's leave, and in-so-far as the,-Department are  ;; Willing to leave, untramelled, this magnificent park, it is surely x'easoiiable to ex-  ��������������� pect that the City should secure a centrally located site for the Department to con-  I struct a Drill Hall on, to cost between $490,000 and $500,000.  The OkLHospital grounds would be quite suitable and would make an excellent  ���������location, and the City could very well afford to offer this to the Government.  Some persons persistently confuse tbe spirit of the Militia with vain militar- V.  ism. This is wx*ong and should be corrected. The Militarist is one who advocates ��������� '*  a warlike policy and who delights in an arrogant attitude to other nations. '���������'>  Whereas the Militia is fundamentally a system of defense, essentially so. Col. y  Hughes took care to point this out most ably and his remarks made men think. He ��������� |  warned his hearers of the necessity of being prepared to defend our homes and our  country.   He demonstrated that the Militia was a peoples' defense movement, that ������;  waterway for cheap and convenient transportation, i  A Gem of Beauty.  Money, labor and skill might transform False  Greek into a highway of commerce and a gem of  beauty. Seattle has a mid-city island for water  fowl.   Why not raise a portion of the centre of  The General Federation o������ Women's, Clubs  which has just held its eleventh biennial convention at San Francisco, gave the cold shoulder to  woman suffrage. The supporters of that propaganda sought to obtain the Federation's endorsement, but the? steam roller was applied, and the  matter was sidetracked.  I  ��������� fense of his country,.cannot be considered as a factor in its defense.  As to the need of being prepared, Col. Hughes told of an incident last year, ;;  I when relations were very strained between Germany and Great Britain. The Brit-  o ish North Sea Fleet, the pride of the whole Empire,  usually  manoeuvered  in  the  , North Sea during the day time, and rode at anchor in a horbor on the coast of Scot- \ '���������  * land at night.   One night, just at the time relations were particularly strained and I >  jt was expected that war would be declared at any moment, a large fleet was ob-  ������������..���������.������ *-������<.,.    - .- . ���������        served hovering around the mouth of the harbor where the British fleet lay at  ful consideration. It would make it possible to 1 'anchor, without a single light burning; iu the morning they had vanished. The  fill and use much of the present worthless grounds ', I next night the British fleet came to anchor as usual, but left one of their number  for buildings and railroads and still retain a .;; fa^ ont at sea.   This vessel came in after midnight and found the whole German  ^; fleet at tte mouth of the harbor, without  a single light.   It was reported and the  ; British fleeK were ordered to reverse their tactics and come in during the day time  ' and manoeuver at night, also to blow up any ship which, contrarv to marine law,  -sailed without lights.  This German fleet was waiting for wireless orders that war was declared, upon 11  ��������� ,   r*   - ��������� a       ��������� i   -j i-       v    *    I which they would have sunken a ship or two in the mouth of the harbor, thus com- !!      .. ���������   .

This fact effectually disposes of the oft repeated injunction,   that  for all time to come.  Let us make no mistake in   ' ��������� there is ho need of alarm.  We do not want war but we should be prepared to re- ������'*  our disposition of this rough gift of nature. . 1 * ceive those who are seeking it.  Another move by Col. Hughes, as Minister of Militia, was to abolish liquor  ; from the Camps. He deserves all credit for this. Liquor is the curse of sport, of ;;  ; society, of business, and has been of militia organizations in the past. This move ::  ; will result in a great impetus to the Militia and much good to the country and we ;;  I heartily commend it to the favorable consideration of our readers. x  isi8n4-bec|ecf*ecr, ������������������,^_IT..���������_r��������� _,..,���������.���������.-,.,.,   ,, ,���������������.  rightly he called the British Columbia ^arbour*  The railway trip on the Q.f. P. ByIro^ifrinc*  Rupert to Skeena Crossing is full of interest. The  Skeena river with its rapid waters, its canyons,  tributaries, mountain scenery, small villages, stations and embryonic garden lands, is full of charm  and instruction.  The railway will soon be running past Hazel-  ton to the property of the G. T. P. Coal Co., twenty miles east of Old Hazelton. The construction  of four steel bridges will see the work completed  as far east from Prince Rupert as above indicated.  Iu fact, the province, as well as the whale Dominion will throb with a new life, and there will  soon be a long line of villages, towns, cities, settlements and commercial, industrial, lumbering,  farming and mining activities brought into existence. As.it was with the C. P. R., so will it be  with the G. T. P. This new line is of incalculable  interest and value to all Canada and the British  Empire. It is an important part of the present  empire-building process.  A long line of inland waters and inlets teems  with valuable fish of. many varieties.

Alderman King Expresses Hop* That  City Will Reserve Itt Portion of  Falsa Creak for Manufactur*  > ing Locations.  That many manufacturing firms  would locate in Vancouver If the city  could find them sites was the statement made at yesterday afternoon's  meeting ot the Markets and Industrie  committee, following on the reading  of a letter from the Barber MattreBS  Company, who wished to know if the  city could provide them with a site  with trackage or one where trackage  could be put in.  Alderman King, chairman of the  committee, said it was impossible for  the city to find sites. Many firms  vould like to establish themselves in  Vancouver, but sites cost 6o ' much  money that to acquire one would take  all a firm's capital and nothing would  be left with which to carry on business. He hoped, when the $600,000 bylaw was passed, that the city would  reserve Its portion of False Creek for  industrial sites. They could build a  sea' wall and then dredge so that a  flotilla might be able to bring material  to the places that would start up. This,  lie said, would be far better than renting the whole of it to the Canadian  Northern.   If that company had money  By T.

One city alone Imports  75,000 dosen eggs weekly, snd It Is  estimated that the eggs produced adjacent to the above mentioned city,  and which help to supply tbe demand,  do not exceed In numbers more than  5,000 dozen weekly. Such a condition  is undesirable when we consider the  advantages, both of climate and nearness to markets that tbe Province enjoys. Wben locating, if possible, land  should be secured near a good market  as, owing to the transportation  charges, it is not a very profitable  business and is situated far from a  town or market.  Although there are not a few  ranches in the Province where the sole  form of occupation Is poultry raising,  and the owners are getting good returns for their investment, at the same  time it must not be forgotten that excellent profits are possible on farms  of mixed husbandry. The returns  from the'flock should add materially to  the income of the fruit-grower, the  dairyman, or even the man who is  merely in the process of clearing his  land.

I  believe that he is doing more harm  than good, as the matter published is  doing more to advertise the vice which  he condemns than it is to destroy It.  There are other thlngB in Vancouver  which need some attention as well as  the vice which he points out; there fc  a spirit of carelessness with regard to  spiritual things which is sapping the  foundations of religion in this city, add  there is also a class of scoffers who  make It their business to scoff at the  church and everything connected with  religion. Now the press is a powerful  weapon and has a grand opportunity,  because many a man reads a newspaper who never enters a church door.  Now, if the press would take up the  matter manfully all round, and not be  satisfied with squibs which appear in  Truth from time to time, it could  really do a grand work.

They could not move  hands or feet; the bags over their  heads kept tbem from judging even  the light or darkness of their prison,  and, while they could have rolled  around like a couple of barrels, the  Inducements for such actions were de-  mam  'with Mr. Yazimoto were unmistakably  Italians, and apparently brothers.  ��������� The room itself had apparently  ���������been roughly dug as a sort of sub*  'cellar, or a retreat to which the clans  [of the Chinatown district could re-  Itreat in time of trouble. It was at  '.least twenty feet square and perhaps  ���������ten feet high, with rough cement  Iwalls, a dirt floor, no furnishings except the table and a few chairs, and:  ���������with no sign of an entrance or an exit  ^anywhere around Its sides. As a prls-  ion, it was ideal���������far below tbe level  'of the street, unknown, unmapped and  [unsuspected.  j Mr. Yazimoto gave his captives a  (few minutes in which to get their  [bearings and become accustomed to.  'their   surroundings.   Then,   smiling;  sweetly into Brockett's eyes, he spoke  in his soft, pleasing voice, with'its  curious idioms and use- of English  words.  "I must assure honorable Mr. Brocket^:," said the Japanese, "how I regret with much solicitude that I accomplish transaction so unpleasing to  him and to his amicable friend. Not  for anything, not even for wealth!-  ness, should this, have to be uncomfortably so, except for the facts he is  honorably acquainted in���������with���������of.  Yes, yes, it is 'of I should make usage.  I saw, with much particular attention,  that no injury was done to honorable  Mr. Brockett or to honorable Mr. Solano."  "No special damage done, as yet,"  Brockett answered. "But why are we  down In this little dungeon? What's  all this trouble between you and me,  Mr. Yazimoto?"  . "Surely," purred Mr. Yazimoto, "Mr.  Brockett knows most capaciously of  the; differences now between us. Mr.  Brockett Is custodian of knowledge  much necessary to Mr. Yasimoto. Mr.  Brockett is not ot l*p.orance to such  particular."  "I think I understand you, Mr. Yastmoto," returned Brockett, "but wiy  don't you come down to facts, and tell  ���������us just why we are here, and Jwst  what yoo want of as?"  "I will proceed to elucidate," explained Mr. Yasimoto. "Mr. Brockett  bas, one time already, politely declined the acceptance of money prof-  feted tor tbe interpretation of a certain code, a most meritorious cipher.

A half-muffled, half-sputtering nolra  ���������reached Brockett's ears, and even tn  * tbe darkness of his own trouble be  (felt almost Inclined to laughter as he  :reallzed that Solano was trying desperately to talk against painful handicaps. Brockett strained bis ears, and  .managed to catch the Cuban's accents  i as Solano tried bravely to express bis  opinions.  "We are���������pair of blamed fools���������  utchook, achoo!" came through the  '��������� bagging.  "Worse than that. Boneheads for  "fair," Brockett responded.

They felt  ; themselves trundled across the floor  jand then felt the ropes around their  ���������legs relaxing. Someone pushed them  [down into chairs, and someone lifted  ���������the bags from their faces. The boys  ��������� blinked in the flaring light of kerosene  ���������.lamps, and then stared around their  prison.  They were seated beside a rough  kitchen table, on the other side of  ���������v'hich Mr. Yazimoto, with an almost  b'enovelent smile, was fingering a few  'envelopes and bits of paper. At Mr.  jYazirnoto's right sat a broad-shoul-  idered young man, with a swarthy face  ^and a mass of curly black hair. To  (the left of the Japanese was a similar  young man, equally swarthy, also  ; adorned with a mass of curly black  hair, but somewhat more slender and  j graceful in his supple figure. Another  youth, of, unmistakably Jewish origin,  'was looking after two lamps which  '.had been placed upon shelves at the  sides of the room.   Both of the men  broad-shouldered young man turned  toward blm for a moment. Mr. Kelly  fldshed bis white teeth in a mocking  reply.  "Kelly Is a nice name, pal," said he.

"But," resumed Mr. Yazimoto, "I  need tbe key to those dispatches, ah,  ten times more than I require tbe dispatches themselves.

He had promised to give an  answer, but none had been forthcoming. Wben the order of new business  was reached, a motion waa introduced  instructing the secretary to forward a  letter to the council expressing the appreciation of the association of the  services of the Reeve and Councillor  Thomas during the time the ward waB  without representation. Councillor  Spencer Robinson objected to the motion on the grounds that he could not  see what the Reeve had done for hia  part of the municipality at ail. It was  pointed out tbat he had received every  delegation with the utmost courtesy  and'had dealt with the matter brought  T. H.

Five hundred land  holders are affected, and the Municipalities of South Vancouver, North  Vancouver. West Vancouver and Point  Grey may become involved. It is certainly a matter of grave moment and  somebody must meet the issue.  Col. Sam Hughes announces that  the government intends to build an  armory on Deadman's Island.

Vancouver, B.C.  **** 1  M'l I 1   I'M'^  A very sad accident occurred last  Friday, when little 10-year-old Hattie  .Work was killed in the elevator at  Central Mission.

All sympathize.  The government has opened a land  office In Vancouver. As this is the  most important land center ln the  Province of British Columbia the action is most appropriate. Hereafter  all information regarding crown lands  will be available. This will be headquarters, instead of Victoria. It will  mean much to Vancouver from a variety of standpoints.  The creation of twelve miles of  dock frontage oft th^ Spanish Bank,  and the tip of Point Grey connected  wltb the Granville street mudflats In  False Creek by a railway line running  through the Kitsilano bill in a tun*  ne), is a scheme which has been laid  before the City Council for consideration by the Vancouver Terminals  Company.

This new  flooring is expected to give better service than that being removed, which  has only lasted less than two years  now since the new bridge was opened.  For the hew flooring is Australian  ironwood, specially.imported .for that  purpose. This Australian hardwood is  to be given a thorough trial on several [  of the city's bridges where the traffic  is particularly heavy. The same kind  of wood was used in the flooring of the  new C.

Australian hardwood  blocks have also been given a critical  test on that portion of Granville  Street between Cordova and Hastings,  where some of the heaviest traffic of  the city passes, and although they  are .now beginning to show the effect  of nearly eight years' wear, tbey are  still in good condition.
