The thr e principal objects to be
attained In carrying out the plans
were:
A water grade highway from
Steveston to Port Coquitlam, with
two ding-nal branches traversing the
hill, with a ."> per cent, grade, miking the eily the centre of a great
highway system;
The creation of a great harbor
front from,Lulu Island to the Brunette:  and
The creation of a harbor ln Annacis slough.
That wns the general plan adopted; an ideal: nnd everything should
be done to conform to this general
plan.
Where to begin?

What  would bear its own cost?

these conditions. The coining of tha
C.N.R. or other railways necessitated
the widening of Front street and
waterfront re:,lain would pay the interest charges nnd provide for a sinking fund to extinguish tbe debt. The
city had loaned iis credit, but would
not bear the cost; it had limlt'.d its
liability lo a half million dollars.
This would bi sufficient to complete
the first unit of tbe improvement,
the widening of Fr"nt s'reet from
Eighth to the Great Northern lots.
As rapidly as necessary and as funds
are available, lhe improvement
would lie extended tH LuUi Island

Mr, Powell explained that shrinkage in the bonds was charged up to

Water lot rentals were based on
$4-50 per front foot, with a rental
for side street, frontage. It would

THE TWO
MERCHANTS
"Oh��� I am out of the newspapers these
days; it does not pay to advertise in Summer weather," remarked a merchant.
"I advertise all the year around," said
another merchant. "I don't believe in letting things get slack. I keep boosting business all the time. If there is business, and
there is at all times, I'm going to get my
share of it."
Which merchant do you think does the
most business?
The second merchant, of course.
No spiders  spin  cobwebs  across  his
doorway-
People are too busy going in and out;
too busy buying.
He is a wideawake merchant, constantly
doing something interesting and constantly
appearing in the columns of The Delta
Times with newsy advertisements concerning his store and its offerings.
He is a wise merchant whose slogan is:
"It pays to advertise in Sumnr-rtime and
all the time." *-*-*i
