In the New Public Schools Act
as Regards Rural District
Schools—and as It Affects
North Vancouver District.
1, North Vancouver municipality has three schools to consider, namely:
(a) The North Vancouver
school, with its two teachers, requiring annually for salaries $i,-
320; anil (or other purposes say
$150 more, The government
grant in future will he Si,1:0 a
year; and the balance of $.150 will
have to be provided by a local rate
in the school district. This school
district embraces the whole town-
site and to the distance of two
miles north and west to the Capilano river.
(li) The Moodyville school, with
one teacher; salary,?boo, and expenses say Sbo. The government
■;r,int will be S340 a year and the
balance of $120 will have to be
raised by a local rate in the school
district. This school district cm-
braces Moodyville and north to
north end of timber limit 12, and
oa;.t to Seymour river.
(c) Within the Moodyvill
district then: is the Lynn valley as
sisted school, which will be fully
provided (ur by the government unless they, as seems likely, cut oil
and form (or ii a seperate Behool
district, in which case it will also
havo to Dud anuut ,mjj by locui
rates for school purposes.
2. The local tates required in
each school,district liov ■ to I"'
levied on the assessed value ol tin
real proper'*, j the personal
property, and the personal menu i
ol nil iii Lie district, and Ihe Usual
exemptions are not allowed.
3. The procedure prescribed is as
(&l After 1st of January when
the act comes into operation tlie
school trustees must supply thf
municipal assessor with a list ol all
persons liable to be rated for school
tax and a statement ol the .11110111)1
oi money they require.
(li) The assessor must then main
up .111 assessment roll, and set
opposite the name o( each person
tin. value o( his personal property,
and his real estate and the amount
ol his income, and he (the assessor) will apportion the amount to
be raised pro-i ala according to the
valuation. "No one class ol
property assessed being charged a
higher rate than another."
(c) There is an appeal in thc
council against the assessment and
they will sit as a court of revision.
(d) A full copy o( the assess
nii'iit roll is  sent   to  the sup' rill
tendent ol education.
ie) The collector of the district
collects the school rales and   p 1
them over 10 the department 11
education monthly, with a detailed
statement of ihe amount collected.
4, The net makes no provision
(or tlie expense of making tin
assessment or collecting the school
rales, yet all the work is spei
and apart from thc ordinary dutii s
of the assessor and collector.
It is not too much to say that
for work, books, stationary, and
postage an expense nf at least $300
will have to be incurred in the
three districts to raise a total
revenue of $600 for school purposes.!
There are no means provided
whereby the assessor can asui-j
tain the value of personal properly
owned or amount of personal in
comes. The only way possible is
by asking each individual to make
a return to the assessor, but that
cannot be insisted on under this
5. In Moodyville school district
a proportion of the fund will have
to In provided by the Moodyville
sections, which are assessed by llie
government assessor; as his
valuation of these lands is very low
and out of proportion to the municipal area, these sections will have
to contribute much less than a fair
ratio of the whole sum raised, yet
all the school children are located
at Moodyville.
and all this money, with the exception of n lew hundred dollars
for repairs on other portions, has
leen expended between Sixth

Keeve Kealy would have been
elected by acclamation. He was
returned at a liye-elcction last
summer to lill the unexpired term

his duties in a most earnest and

may be said ol the councillors. At

That this fulling off In the rate of
