This brought an explanation from
i the Editor ol The Delta Times as
i to the calling of the meeting and
t Coun. Davie claimed  the right to
: answer his critics and  Mr. McKee
said it was usual for Councillors to
explain.    He thought a great deal
of work ought to be done by contract and tbat if the ward system
were abolished it would better conditions.
H. D. Benson said municipal
matters deserved close attention.
The first Council Delta had 28
years since, worked well without
the ward system and with good
men would still work well. The
contract system worked well if well
looked after ai d if men with "axes
to grind" were kept cut. The cost
of bridges could  be estimated to a
did not expect to escape criticism..
The present Council were not entitled to the credit of commencing
to micidamize the roads aud he
would do all work possible by contract.
H. N. Rich was always interested in municipal matters and at once
proceeded to explain what had
been done relative to a water supply. Col. Tracey bad been employed and lad reported in favor of
a supply from springs in Fees. 11
and 19, Tp. 4 Delta anl lh. low
lying porticn of the municipality
could be served at a cost of $125,-
Mr. Mitchell wanted a guarantee
that work coul I be done tor amount named.
Mr. Rich said 'he best mau available had been 1 mployed and no
doubt his estimate was fair.
J. B. Burr���"It will co.t a lo' of
money and we should be sure as to
the amount."
"Has wooden pipe been sufficiently tested?" ������Will it stand the
pressure?" ' How does it compare
with steel?" these and a number of
more or less pertinent questions
were fired at Mr. Rich iu <jui<>u
succession and brought forth the
reply that Col. Tracey was a reputable man and i! they were dissatisfied it was up to his questioners to
sugge-it a more capable engineer.
Chilliwack had a wooden pipe system but that municipality were uow
sorry that they had not done the
work themselves iustead of giving |
it to a company. !
H. D. Benson quoted figures
from Col. Tracey's estimate. Meu
familiar with the use of wooden
pipe informed bim tbat it was best
for the Delta. It was being shipped to Australia from B. C , it was
in use where the head wa- 600 feet
as against 200 feet required in the
Delta. Steel pipe wo.tl.i be ������ub 11
to rn.t. As to the cos\ be was
prepired to construct the works for
less than Tiacey's figures. Ladner
would have a pressure ol about 85
pounds to the f-quare inch. Wooden
pipes hail been taken out in Victoria perfectly ^und alter 40 years'
use. The scheme would be revenue
pro luring all, the way and lie be-
liev4ii would supply 50,000 people.

After the programme had been
run off, the chairman aanounced a

Reduced Rates.
The B. C. E. R. Co. is making a
voluntary reduction in the price et
lighting, not only in Vancouver,
but on the whole of the mainland
touched by the company's wires.
This comes as a sort of Christmas
present to the company's patrons.
In the city of Vancouver an extra
10 per cent, discount has been
given, making a total of 20 per
The suburban districts, in the
matter of reduction, fare even a
little betier than the city. They
get a direct reduction ot two cents
per K.W.H. in  Thrice and also an
increase from j per   c*ut   t��   ����� fmr

to North Vancouver. South Vancouver, Point Grey, Richmond,
Steveston, Ladner and C iiiiii wack.
The reduction will date from Jan.
1 and will apply on all bills render'
ed op or after January 15.
Allowing this reduction in coat
and increase in discount, the B. C
E. R. Co. is in the position ot furnishing illumination at a lower rate
than any other company in Canada.

RICH, Ladner,, B.C.. Agent,
I might do  tbe  best they could and
1 the people   would   still   kick.    It
was not right to expend more than
the   revenue.     Mr.   Benson   gave
some interesting information relative to the early history of the mu-
' nicipality,   especially  the  trips   to
Victoria seeking aid from  the government.    The idea that the need-
| ed improvements could be obtained
! in one year was humbug.
Re ve-eleot Hutcherson  thanked
I the electors for the honor conferred
; upon  him.     He owned  to  leing
curious to know where money went
and what things cost.   As to firing

for a reason. The present system
in use in the East End ot paying
for gravel delivered by the yard
worked well.
W. R. Ellis compared contract vs
day work unfavorably to the latter
and Wm. Mason gave an instance
where the reverse was true.
Coun. Embree was willing to retire in favor of better men if they
could be got. The present system
was satisfactory in the East End,
and contracts let at Sunbury and
Annacis Island had been satisfactory. He was not in favot ot the
j ward system now. Mr. Burr
j should not have alt. eked the present Council when it was the 1907
Council which had incurred the
debt. The late Reeve had stated
last nomination day that he would

had endorsed the stand he took.
Considerable cross firing took
place between Ex-Coun. J. McCallan, Messrs. Ellis, McDonald,

at Coun. Embree without adding
much to the interest of the discussion.

works, leaving the Council tn do
the legislative part pi the business.
They bad Commissioners for the
cemetery, why not for public
works? The financial report was
issued too late to be a guide to the
people in selecting the next year's
Council and he wanted Mr. Oliver,
as tbeir representative, to look into
the matter.
Mr. Oliver pointed out that no
legislation was necessary, the Council could, by by-law, appoint a competent man to supervise the [ nblic
works, defining his powers and
duties. As to financial information; they had a newspaper in the
municipality and there was nothing
to hinder the Finance Committee
from making a monthly statement
so that the people could be kept informed all tbe time.
Discussion then turned on the acquisition of part ofthe River roadbv
railway company, J.B.Burr being
very severe in his strictures on the
Council declaring that without tbe
consent of th. people the Railway-
Company could not take the road.
W.Mason wanted to know why Mr
Burr had not so inforuned the Council at first and Coun. Davie declared
it too bad they did mt bave Mr.
Burr's advice sooner. Mr. Burr
declared that we must have men
capable of grasping these questions.
We would have no road by spring.
Reeve Hutchurson said the road
was not passable.   Some   time   was
then occupied in contrasting the actions ot the Council at   different
1 times.
Mr. Oliver thought that Mr.
Burr was a little astray as to the
law. The matter had been referred
to the Railway Commission who
had made an award and he thought
that award could be enforced.
Mr. Pybus-^"We do no: know
what that award is."
Mr. Oliver said, no doubt a copy
of the award could be obtained from
(She secretary ot the Railway Commission if applied for by the Council.
Coun. Embne said it was reported that the Railway Commission would be here again in January and he advised inlt rested
parties to attend the Commission.
After a vote of thanks to the
chairman, the meeting adjourned.
