The action of the council is simply warning; in good time, of what such a body are liable to do. and the sur- vey stafi will no doubt profit by it as well as others. I think any fair minded person, par- ticularly one who knows anything two assistants would seem to indi-i cate that the man holding this posi- tion would have no time to devote to other interests.

No interest. Taxes paid until 1911 On March 27th, 1909, Mr.J.D.Andcrson, B C. Land Surveyor, wrote us with reference to the Centra! Park property as follows: The more I see of this particular block the more highly I think of it. There is no possible doubt but this is very high grade fruit, land, and it is a pity that settlers are not already on it. It is so easy to clear, and the land is the characteristic high grade fruit land of this district that is sure to be in time a very profitable tract. It compares very favorably with the Doiikhobor's land at Waterloo ana the McKenzie land at Champion v-reek below "Waterloo, held at to ?150 an acre. Never before have B.C. Fruit Lands been offered at such ridic- ulous prices. Price is no object. These Lands MUST BE SOLD within 30 days. The owners have, given definite instructions to soil every lot regardless of price. This is, I believe, the first time the public has been given the opportunity to buy Fruit Lands at such prices, Maps, surveyor's reports on each lot and application forms will be mailed on request.
