Mayors of the City of New Westminster
From Date of Incorporation
(Extract from New Westminster Daily News.)
New Westminster was incorporated on July 16, I860, and
from then until 1872 the council consisted of seven members
elected from five wards. The president, as the mayor was then
called, was merely one of the councillors elected by themselves,
and not by the ratepayers at large as is the system at present.
This method obtained until 1872. From 1873 to 1883 it consisted of the original seven councillors, but the mayor was not
included.
The members of the first city council in 1860 were President
Leonard McClure, Councillors Ebenezer Brown, W. J. Armstrong,
Henry Holbrook, J. A. R. Homer, A. H. Manson and W. E. Cor-
mack.

City Engineer's Report
New Westminster, B. C, January, 1913.
To His Worship the Mayor and Aldermen of Council of the
Corporation of the City of New Westminster.
Gentlemen:—
I have the honour to submit my Annual Report of the work
done by my Department during the year 1912.
BOARD OF WORKS DEPARTMENT.
The work performed by day labor consisted of the clearing,
grading and macadamizing of Streets, constructing timber sidewalks, crossings, etc., cleaning and flushing paved streets and
installing house connections to Sewers.
The work under this head has been far in excess of that
performed during any previous year in the history of the City.
During the year, 15.76 miles of streets have been graded,
13.26 miles macadamized, 9.38 miles cleared, 12.96 miles of timber
sidewalks have been constructed and 2.35 miles of timber crossings laid. This work has not been concentrated in any one portion of the City, all sections being given fair consideration. In
Sapperton, the work consisted of 2.64 miles of clearing, 5.74
miles of grading, 3.49 miles of macadamizing, 4.45 miles of timber
walks and 0.57 miles of crossing.
In the central portion the following work has been done:
2.30 miles of clearing, 4.87 miles of grading, 4.60 miles of macadamizing, 5.46 miles of timber walks and 1.20 miles of crossings.
The Western Section, owing to the extreme rapidity with
which it is building up, required more attention than was anticipated when the estimates for 1912 were prepared.
In this section 4.44 miles of streets were cleared, 5.16 miles
graded and 5.17 miles macadamized, 3.05 miles of timber sidewalks laid and 0.55 miles of crossings installed.
- In Queensboro 2.01 miles of plank roadway have been constructed. 42 City of New Westminster, B. C.
The following is a summary of the expenditure on these
works:
Sapperton   $ 90,552.00
Central   101,672.00
West End    83,972.00
Queensboro       3,945.00
Total .$280,141.00
NOTE:—The plates mentioned in this Report are on file for
inspection in my office.
Plate A  shows the roads macadamized during 1912.
Plate B shows the roads graded during 1912.
Plate C shows the roads cleared during 1912.
Works Carried Out Under Contract.
The works carried out under this head consisted of the construction of Sanitary Sewers, Storm Sewers, Street Improvements,
Arena Building, Isolation Hospital, Garbage Wharf and Garbage
Scow.
The total value of the works was $436,309.00, and the engineering expenses and supervision $11,208.00, or 2.57% of the
cost of the work actually executed. Schedule A shows these
charges in detail.
Work Under Contract But Not Yet Executed.
The value of the works under Contract but which have not
yet been executed is $386,435.00, and the engineering expenses
on this account are $6,256.00 or 1.62%. These works consist
entirely of street improvements.
Sapperton Sewer.
A comprehensive scheme has been prepared for sewering,
under the combined system, nearly the whole of Sapperton and
a portion of Burnaby. The Dominion Government have agreed
to supply the labor for the portion of the Sewer running through
their property, and Burnaby is now advertising the Bye-law for
the contribution of their share.
The scheme, when completed, will add 45 miles to our Sewers.
The estimated cost of this construction is $884,110.00, and
the engineering expenses incurred to date are $5,509.00 or 0.62%.
Plate D shows the joint scheme. Plate E shows Section No. 2.
Contracts for Sections A, B and Outfall have been let. Financial Report, 1912 43
Further particulars of the scheme are given in my detailed
Report now on file. Plate E. also shows the parts of the City
that are sewered and the portions yet to be drained.
General Office Work.
In addition to Local Street Improvement Plans, the Department has designed a new Reservoir which it is proposed to construct in the upper end of the Queen's Park, to hold 1% million
gallons, and has also designed a scheme to increase the capacity
of the Sapperton Upper Reservoir.
The survey for a duplicate pipe line across the North Arm
to Lulu Island is almost complete.
Topographical Surveys and contours of Queen's Park, Moody
Park, Albert Crescent and Sapperton Park have been made, preparatory to a scheme for general improvements. The New Cemetery has also been contoured.
Plans have been prepared, grades established and levels
given for the grading and rocking of over 15 miles of streets.
During the year it has been necessary to write 1954 letters,
an increase of 207 over 1911, and 1148 over 1910.
In 1912, the total number of Water Permits issued was 458
and Sewer Permits 358, against 410 Water and 365 Sewer Permits
during 1911.
The number of Plans prepared during the year was 576.
The number of persons who called at the office on business
of importance was 1851. In addition to these there was a considerable number of callers seeking information on minor matters
of whom no record has been kept.
Schedule B shows total value of work executed, value of
contracts not executed, and estimated cost of schemes prepared.
Board of Works Maintenance.
The increased cost of maintenance over 1911 is $10,743.66.
This increase in expenditure has been necessitated owing to the
fact that more paved streets are now being used and require
cleansing and flushing.
During the year 1913, with the completion of several more
miles of paved streets, I would recommend the incoming Council
to seriously consider the purchase of an automobile automatic
flushing machine which will be more efficient and economic than
another horse drawn vehicle.
The purchase of two steam wagons by the Board of Works
for the purpose of hauling rock and other materials was made 44
City of New Westminster, B. C.
early in the year, although the wagons were not delivered until
late in the season, but since the time of their delivery they have
been put to excellent use, cutting the cost of haulage down to half
of that for which it could be done by teams.
The use of these wagons during the present year will, in
my opinion, net a saving sufficient to pay for the cost of the
wagons.
The oiling of roads was carried out during the summer
months, giving considerable relief in some districts, but owing
to the great demand for oil exceeding the supply, more oiling
could not be done.
I would recommend that an oil tank be purchased to fit
on the body of one of the Steam Wagons so that oiling can be
carried out more rapidly and economically than heretofore.
I strongly recommend that a fire-proof vault be built for
the safe keeping of the hundreds of plans and other Records in
my Department which represent many hundred thousand dollars,
in fact their loss could not be estimated; the progress of the
works in hand, alone, would be delayed at least a year should
these plans, etc., be, unfortunately, destroyed.
WATERWORKS DEPARTMENT.
This Department has had an exceedingly busy year, having
laid 11.17 miles of entirely new mains and installed 17 new
Hydrants, etc.   Further particulars can be seen on Schedule C.
The Plate F is a diagram showing the quantity of water in
the Reservoir during the past 12 months, also the amount of
water supplied to Richmond.
It is particularly interesting to note that the change effected,
in accordance with the recommendation to the Council, by means
of which the low-level district of Sapperton is now supplied from
Queen's Park Reservoir in lieu of the small Sapperton Reservoir,
has proved entirely satisfactory. This change enabled the Department to keep the high-level Reservoir entirely full and overflowing since the 8th of May this year. This, I believe, has never
occurred before, except perhaps during the first year of the
installation of the Waterworks System.
The Sapperton Reservoir has also been full and overflowing
during the same period.
Queen's Park Reservoir has never had less in it, at any one
time, than 1,300,000 gallons and this only for a period of one
day.
The average standing amount in this Reservoir during the
year has been about 2,000,000 gallons per day. Financial Report, 1912 45
Richmond has drawn during the year an average of 800,000
gallons per day, at some periods the million gallon mark having
been reached.
The amount allowed in the estimates for the maintenance of
the 25" pipe line has only been exceeded to the extent of $61.63.
The exact cost of labor for maintenance of both the 14" and
25" pipe lines for the past year is $3,061.63. The proportion
chargeable to the 14" Main has not yet been segregated.
Several large leaks have occurred in this main during the
last few months.
The Plans for the new Covered-in reinforced Concrete
Reservoir have been fully prepared, and a site has been selected
by exploration in the nature of test holes in Queen's Park, immediately North-East of the No. 3 Fire Hall.
Tenders were also called for the raising of the level of the
High Level Reservoir. This work has not yet been let, and I
strongly urge the incoming Council to construct this additional
storage as soon as possible.
It is interesting to note that the number of new Services
installed during the year exceeds that of last year by 56.
After the flooding of the River this year several leaks
appeared in the Lulu Island Submerged Water Main, which on
investigation appeared to be caused by the movement of the sandy
river bottom which left some of the joints of the pipe without
any supports. These holes were, doubtless, in some cases, caused
by eddies from the Piles of the Bridge and probably waterlogged
snags lying close to the pipe line.
The pipe has now been repaired and the water will be turned
on again as soon as the concrete foundations have time to set.
To insure a supply of water to Lulu Island and Kichmond an
emergency main was laid, costing $2,000.00, half of which is to
be paid by Richmond. This Main is working in a highly satisfactory manner and delivering to Richmond 800,000 gallons per
day. '  * ; | ||
With reference to the proposed duplicate pipe line across
the narrows of Twentieth Street on the North Arm to Lulu Island,
Mr. A. O. Powell, Harbour Engineer, reported upon this matter,
and his Report is on file for reference. The surveys, however, for
this scheme are nearly completed, and this will be a matter for
the incoming Council to take up.
The Water Tower constructed by the Vancouver Power Co.
at the head works has been completed, and I can say, without
any hesitation, that it is the most modern, up-to-date and artistic 46
City of New Westminster, B. C.
Water Tower in North America.    Water has now been drawn
through this Tower for the past few months.
The water supply has, on one or two occasions, been discoloured, owing to some of the glacial clay from the construction
of the new dam finding its way into the water. This discolouration was unpleasant, but absolutely harmless. Provision is now
made, however, to prevent a recurrence.
In conclusion, I wish to thank the Council for the many
courtesies shown me during the year.
The success of the Department this year has been due, in a
large measure, to the loyalty of the staff, which has worked with
great devotion throughout the year.
I remain,
Gentlemen,
Yours obediently,

City Electrician's Report
To the Chairman and Members of Electric Light Committee of the
City Council.
Gentlemen:
I beg to submit the 21st Annual Report of the Light Depart
ment for the year 1912.
In presenting this report for the year 1912 I am pleased to
say that the year has turned out to be the most prosperous one
in the history of this department. Almost from the beginning
of the year the demand for lighting services kept coming in at
a rapid pace from all sections of the city. We had planned to
do quite a lot of extension work and to bring the system up to a
basis where we could supply the demand from any quarter we
might be called upon to do so; but after we got into the month
of June some changes were made in the plans of the Board of
Works Department, which caused us an extra amount of work in
the different streets where local improvements and new grading
improvements were being done.
This we had not made provision for in our estimates, but
found the work had to be done in order to conform with the Board
of Works plans. This work, along with the extra demand for
light, gave this department all it could possibly do to keep up
with the requirements throughout the year.
Now, the system as at present installed will reach the limits
of the city at three different points, and if time would have permitted we had demands from the Lulu Island section that would
pretty nearly bring us to the limits in that direction; but as the
main portion of the city demanded so much of our time we found
it impossible to give the Island portion all the time that was
necessary to supply the demands of quite a number of people
down in that section. However, this will be attended to in the
coming year.
I might say that we were called upon to supply some large
installations in the past year, namely, The Westminster Trust
Block—the requirements of this building calls for about 1,000
lights. We also supplied the Bradley Block which required both
light and heat. This block alone calls for an installation of 800
lights. Also the Mandeville Block on Sixth Avenue, and the many
residences that were built in various portions of the city—making
in all a matter of 1,057 installations throughout the year 1912. 54
City of New Westminster, B. C.
Another installation I should like to draw to your notice is that
of the Westminster Arena. This building is fitted for 600 lights,
and I believe is giving very good satisfaction as I have heard no
complaints.
We also extended the street lighting system to various points
of the city granted by the council from time to time. I am pleased
to say that a map is now being prepared that will show the location of every lamp that is at present in use in the city. I might
say that the number to date is 276 lights now installed and burning. The cost of the ornamental lighting for the past year has
been totalled up and found to amount to $14.95 per standard per
year.
I am pleased to report that a new contract has been entered
into between the Vancouver Power Company and the city for a
period of eleven years for a price per K. W. which I consider
will be very advantageous to the city from now on. I have to
say that the Vancouver Power Company are very anxious to
deliver the very best service they can possibly give, and at no
time has any interruptions to the service taken place during the
past year except in cases of accident where they could not possibly
avoid it.
In the past year the Committee were pleased to add an automobile to the department for the purpose of attending to the
emergency troubles, and I have to report that during the year it
has been very serviceable indeed, especially at night when trouble
takes place to get the service in operation again as quickly as
possible, so that people were not inconvenienced as much as if a
man had to get there on foot. We found it very convenient at
times for the trimmer as with the distance he now has to cover
in the city we found the machine saved a lot of time, and it kept
our trouble department from having very many complaints.
It is true that we have been obliged to over-expend our last
year's estimates by some thousands of dollars; but I can assure
you that this was brought about by the increased demand for
light which caused us to make some very large expenditures for
meters, transformers and wire j also poles and other line material
that we were obliged to purchase for the extensions that were
coming so quick. However, I might say that we now have some
very good lines to show for last year's work that will give good
service to the city for the next eighteen or twenty years.
Some of the lines are jointly owned and a part of them are
the city's property, but as I have decided to get a map made
for the purpose of showing all the poles in the city, which are
the property of the city, property of the Telephone Company, property of the two power companies, and also the Western Union
Telegraph Co.'s poles, it will be easy to distinguish the poles that
belong to the different parties from now on.   I will also try and Financial Report, 1912
55
have those poles stencilled with the names of the owners, or joint
owners, as the case may be as I believe that such a step will be
necessary owing to the great number that are being erected from
time to time.
Now, gentlemen, the earnings of this department ha Ye advanced very handsomely within the past year and I know that
they will advance in the coming year; but as these figures will
come to you through the City Treasurer's office I would prefer
to leave that to be ascertained from his report.
A closer detail of this report can be furnished to any o! the
council that may desire it in the coming year.
In conclusion, I desire to express my thanks to His Worship
the Mayor, Chairman of the Department, and members of the City
Council for their assistance to me in the discharge of my duties.

City Electrician. 1

Building Inspector's Report
New Westminster, B. C, January 3, 1912.
To the Chairman and Members of Building Committee of the City
Council.
Gentlemen:
I beg herewith to present for your information a record of
the Building Department for the year 1912, with analysis, comparisons and remarks that will explain in detail the advance of
the city in buildings.
During the year six hundred and eighty-three permits have
been issued of the total value of $1,634,518.00, distributed through
the various months as under.

Comparing in 1911 with 442 permits to the value of $1,124,587.00;
$1,318.70 for the 10% months the department was established; but by
adding a monthly average of the 10 months known, for January and
February, would bring the total for 1911 to $1,330,063.00, as compared
With the full total for 1912, $1,634,518.00, an increase of $304,455.00, or
25%%.
To which may be added, for 1912, $98,000.00 as the amount of work
done by lessees of the waterfront properties; which, although later coming into the general scheme of Harbor Improvements, are not affected
for a time, the work being done outside the jurisdiction of this department, no permits being issued. Financial Report, 1912 67

City of New Westminster, B. C.
The Building Bylaws as at present arranged are not sufficiently clear as to the requirements of buildings to be erected in
the first and second fire limits, and need revision in several other
clauses.
The same difficulty is also being experienced in other Coast
Cities, and their Bylaws are in course of revision at the present
time. I would recommend that as soon as a draft of the revised
bylaws be received action be taken by New Westminster to work
on the same lines, thereby standardizing the Building Bylaws.
I think the present would be an opportune time to notify all
owners of buildings using areas under the sidewalks to sign an
agreement that has been drawn up by the City Solicitor so that
the city would be fully safeguarded in case of accident through
the use of prisms and hatches.
I beg to thank the Mayor and Aldermen and the Building
Committee of the Council for the courtesy shown me whenever I
have had occasion to consult them, thereby enabling me at all
times to work harmoniously with all other departments of the city
service.
All of which is respectfully submitted.

I intend to make a number of recommendations which can be
taken up in the yearly estimates if acceptable.
I cannot give too much praise to the Police Magistrate for the
time and intelligent treatment of the cases which came before
him, which under the conditions which exist of lack of prison
accommodation require the most careful disposal.
I have the honor to be, gentlemen,
Yours sincerely,

Fire Department Report
To the Chairman and Members of the Fire Committee of the City
Council.
Gentlemen:
I herewith submit the 23rd Annual Report of the Fire Depart-
should be placed before you for consideration,
ment. This Report contains a record of the workings of the Department for the past year and such recommendations as I consider
The year 1912 was a very successful one regarding fire loss.
The Department dealt with 88 fires during the year, 61 telephone, 14 boxes and 13 verbal calls. Using 28,950 feet of hose
and 65 extinguishers.
Insurance carried on property affected was $850,450, the loss
on same being $76,828.
The largest fire of the year occurred at the Royal City Mills
and resulted in the greatest loss. Had it not been for this fire
the loss would have been very low for the year.
With the growth of the City the need of extending the fire
service is apparent. Lulu Island is in much need of a Fire Hall
and apparatus. It is building up very fast, mostly industrial, and
needs prompt attention. If this is undertaken I would recommend
the purchase of a Combination Chemical and Hose Auto for No.
2 Hall on 8th Street, and move No. 2 horse-drawn wagon to the
Hall on Lulu Island. The Fire Alarm System will also have to be
extended to the Island and other parts of the City.
Sapperton needs a new Hall and another horse on the wagon
now in use. The Hall is old and beyond repair, being totally unfit
for the purposes of a Fire Hall.
The Auto Apparatus, now in use, has proved itself much more
efficient than the horse-drawn one and its maintainance much less.
It is being adopted by Departments everywhere.
The old Fire Engine, as I reported last year, is of no use as a
fire fighter, and is not worth repairing for fire service; but may
be of some use to the Board of Works to pump out cellars or
ditches, and if it becomes necessary for the Fire Department to
keep an Engine a new one will be required. Jl - Financial Report, 1912 61
I will be pleased to take up the requirements of the Department with the Council for better fire protection.
Mr. Turnbull, the Building Inspector, has been a great help
in fire prevention by his inspections of dangerous buildings and
the carrying out of the Building Regulations; working harmoniously with myself for the betterment of both Departments.
I should also state that Mr. Wootton, Superintendent of
Waterworks, has been very careful in keeping the water in the
most efficient manner for supplying the Fire Department.
For the Firemen I have nothing but praise.
In conclusion, I wish to thank the Mayor and Council for the
support given the Department in the past year.
Yours respectfully,
J. H. WATSON,
Chief of Fire Dept. I

Medical Health Officer's Report
(Abridged)
New Westminster, B. C, January 18th, 1913.
To the Chairman and Members of Health Committee of the City
Council.
Gentlemen:
I would beg to submit the following summary of infectious
diseases reported to the Health Department for the year 1912:
Cases       Deaths
Chicken Pox     5 0
Diphtheria  22 1
German Measles     5 0
Measles     56 0
Scarlet Fever   19 1
Tuberculosis  (Pulmonary)       7 7
Typhoid Fever   18 0
Whooping Cough     1 0
Other infectious diseases     3 0
I 136 9
Remarks :
With reference to diphtheria I may say that at times our
physicians find it difficult to obtain diphtheria antitoxin in the
city and as in severe cases even an hour's delay in its administra-
tion means death to the patient I would recommend that arrangements be made with a local druggist to have a sufficient supply in
stock a't all times. This antitoxin is very expensive, and as it
does more to prevent the spread of diphtheria than any other
measure at our disposal I think it should be supplied free to the
doctors by the city.
I would also report that from September 3rd, 1912, when we
first began to keep track of complaints of unsanitary premises to
the end of the year our nuisance book shows a total of 61 complaints. During (his time we had 2 prosecutions under the sanitary bylaw and 2 convictions. During the whole year we had 6
prosecutions with 5 convictions.
I remain,
Yours truly,

Medical Health Officer. Financial Report, 1912 63
Chief Sanitary Inspector's Report
New Westminster, B. C, December 31, 1912.
To the Chairman and Members of Health Committee of the City
Council.
Gentlemen:
I beg to submit herein a brief report of the work of this
Department, for the year ending 31st December, 1912; and also
a few suggestions and recommendations.
In January of this year a building was built by the Health
Committee, and fitted up for a smallpox hospital with all modern
improvements. It is splendidly situated on the North side of
Eighth Street and Eighth Avenue, and close to the city limits,
and about one mile from Columbia Street. This building is at all
times ready for occupancy should it be required.
On the 21st of March we took over the collection of refuse in
the city. The work in this branch has been from the start increasing rapidly, and of course will continue to increase in proportion
to the population.
The work in this Department, owing to the houses being so
scattered over a large area, will necessitate an increase in the
staff, and more horses and carts will be required to cope with the
work in 1913. With an auto truck for the downtown section, and
two more double carts and horses, I think the work can be carried
out satisfactorily for the time being.
During the year—
944 loads of refuse were hauled to the wharf to be towed to sea;
37 animals were destroyed; 118 toilets cleaned; 9 cesspits were
emptied; 3 septic tanks cleaned.
The bake shops and butcher shops have been inspected at certain periods during the year, and the following were condemned
as being unfit for human food:
4 hogs; 8 calves; 1 side of beef.
The staff at the present time consists of:
Medical Health Officer, Clerk, Plumbing Inspector,   2   Sanitary
Inspectors, 3 teamsters, 3 assistants, 1 wharf hand, 2 hired teams.
I am attaching hereto statement showing the amount collected
by this Department from March to December 31st.
In conclusion, allow me to thank His Worship the Mayor, and
Chairman and Members of the Health Committee, for the assistance rendered me in the discharge of my duties, which are not of
the most pleasant nature at all times.
Respectfully submitted,
S. J.PEARSE,
Chief Sanitary Inspector. 64

Plumbing Inspector's Report
New Westminster, B. C, January 7, 1913.
To the Chairman and Members of Health Committee of the City
Council.
Gentlemen:
I beg to submit the following report for the year ending Dec.
31st, 1912: '■ J|f
During the twelve months just closed—
616 Permits have been issued from this office; 616 Rough-in Inspections have been made; 589 Final Inspections have been made; 374
Sewer Inspections have been made; 92 Miscellaneous Inspections
have been made; 1,671 Inspections made during the year.
The sum of $600.70 has been collected at this office for Inspection fees from the first of May, 1912, to the 31st of December. This
amount is made up as follows:
Fees collected during the month of May $ 76.25
June      63.25
July      70.45
August       68.00
September     89.00
October      71.00

I would recommend for the coming year that an Assistant
Plumbing or a Sewer Inspector be appointed, as owing to the
increased amount of sanitary and storm sewers being constructed
throughout the city, it is almost impossible for one man to attend
to the office, plumbing and sewers, as the class of buildings now
being constructed in the city require quite a lot of time regarding
the plumbing during their construction.
In conclusion, I wish to thank His Worship the Mayor and
Aldermen for the able assistance which they have always so willingly given me.
Yours respectfully,
JAS. CRAIG,

ibrarian's Report
New Westminster, B. C, January 2nd, 1913.
To the Chairman and Members of Library Committee of the City
Council.
Gentlemen :
I beg to submit the following Report of this Library from
May 15th to December 31st, 1912.^
Statistics not being available for the entire year, it will be
impossible to present the Committee with a complete report of the
Library's proceedings during the whole year. The following
table shows to some extent what has been done:
1.    Circulation (May 15-Dec. 31):—
Biography      82
Travel    314

The percentage of fiction circulated is about the average.
2. Registration: The Membership Register shows 435 borrowers listed previous to the period under consideration, with 769
readers enrolled at the close of that time. The actual number of
new members, 368 in all, forms nearly 48% of the entire registration.
3. Addition: There have been 233 volumes added to the
shelves of the Library; 218 of these are by purchase, and 15 by
donation, classed as follows: 66

Twenty-two volumes are held as special reference works, the
remaining 211 volumes being for the general Circulating Department.
4. From May to December, 22 members have registered on
the Cash Deposit System.   Received in fines, etc., $39.00.
Cataloguing: Besides the new volumes added to the Library,
about 250 books, mainly from the Natural Science and General
Literature classes, have been re-classified and permanently catalogued.
Periodicals: The list of periodicals subscribed for was
revised, some of the journals eliminated, either entirely, or in
favor of some work along the same line of greater scope. A number of durable binders have been ordered for the purpose of preserving the magazines while in use in the reading-rooms. Also a
number of new hand-files for the newspapers have been received.
With the increased patronage and the progress made in various lines it is encouraging to note the live interest which is being
manifested, and to find desultory reading being supplanted by a-
desire to follow up some definite course and some certain line of
thought. Suggestion and help are frequently asked of the Librarian, and, on the other hand, patrons are encouraged to recommend
for the Library books which have proved of help to them, particularly in the useful and^ fine arts.
Respectfully submitted,

Publicity Commissioner's Report
New Westminster, B. C, January, 1913.
To His Worship the Mayor and Aldermen
of the City of New Westminster, B. C.
Gentlemen,—
In presenting my Annual Report on the work done by your
Department of Publicity, I am justified in claiming that never
has this city become so widely known throughout the world as
during the year 1912.
From all points of the compass enquiries have been continuous, and I am glad to note a great improvement in the class of
those studying our conditions.
A feature of the correspondence has been the number of letters referring to previous replies, sent as far back as May, 1910.
A number have also referred to interviews with your Commissioner at the American Expositions of 1911, held at St. Paul,
Chicago, and New York—where we won the $1,000 Stilwell
Trophy.
The nationality of families reporting at this office show that
160 came from Great Britain, 73 from other parts of Canada, and
31 from various points in the United States; the balance arrived
from South Africa, Mexico, Germany, France, etc., etc. The proportion of arrivals shows that practically 20% have responded to
the evidence submitted for their consideration.
Much attention has been devoted to endeavoring to obtain
new industries, on the basis that it is far preferable to provide
employment beforehand—rather than enter into a campaign of
promiscuous inducement of settlement, without forethought as to
what will happen when the new-comer arrives—and in this direction your Industrial Committee has had a number of enquiries
which will, it is believed, produce results of material benefit to
our citizens.
The work of today will probably be several years in fructifying to its full extent; but that it is bearing fruit is shown by the
great increase in requests for information from the greater newspapers of the world regarding New Westminster. 68
City of New Westminster, B. C.
Much work has been undertaken by your Commissioner in
lisetting up" fruit for exhibition purposes, in photographing
typical scenes, in securing statistics, in preparing necessary literature, and interviewing an ever-increasing number of callers and
new settlers.
In reporting on the general conditions, I am of opinion:
(a) That the city possesses every advantage that the settler
can desire in the way of climate, home-building facilities, sanitation, education, reasonable taxation (on land
only), amusements and shopping facilities, with special
facilities for manufacturing and industrial progress.
(b) The rapid, but steady growth of the last few years has
necessitated an enlargement of our principal stores, until
today almost any article of necessity or luxury can be
obtained within the city boundary, making the city a
desirable centre for the home-seeker.
(c) The advantages of our Great Waterway and "Harbor
Extension Plans" is becoming world-known in shipping
and commercial circles, and our 80 industries will, I
believe, reach the 100 mark in 1913.
(d) Railway and ocean transportation facilities, existant and
in prospective, promise to place this city in the rank of
the Glasgow of Scotland, Liverpool of England, and
Montreal of Canada.
Respectfully submitted,
H C. H. STUART WADE, F.R.C.I.,
Publicity Commissioner.  mm
