CITY COUNCIL ON GRADES

Mayor May, al last evening's
Heeling ol the city council vet-
st-il tlie Council's resolution   re-
jecting the commission ol engineers' report and opened the
matter again Ior lurtlier con-
sideralioii. His written state-
nieiits were as (ollows : "In
ease there should have lieen any

relumed in coiinci lion with the
resoliitiain passed on Thursdav

by Aid. McKae, to the elicit
that lhe report ol lhe coiiiinis-
sion of snginesrs regarding
grades in- adopted in its cntir-
ity whiih was defeated liy a .)
to : vote ; therefore, 1 will give
every liiemher of this council an
opportunity to form a matured
judgment by vstoing ithe reso-
lulion. My reason (or doiu-,' si.
is because 1 consider progress
toward the lull settlement of
sanitary conditions and the cs-
tahlisliiiieiit of perinaiieni grades (or those who are anxious to
liuild   good    structures    on    a
commercial basis, being great!*
retarded and I would suggest
thai vnn icier the CSSS to a
higbcf tribunal ltamelv, a pleb-
iscile ol llie ratepavers of
North Vancouver on the t|Ucs-
tion, "Shall the report ol the
engineers he accepted, ves or
no ?"
The hall was packed last
evening   and   the disiussion   of
grate whii It was the drawing
card, was opened hv lite   ilerk
reading a petition signed by s-
lioul   2\2   liti-eiis, as lollows :
"We   lhe   undersigned ralc|a\
ers   of lhe   city ol North  Van
couver deploring the breach ol
faith displayed hv a majority
of the  members of the   council
in refusing lo accept tin- ragin
etis'    reporl   on grades    aller
pledging themselves to adopt
it hereby call lor the iiiniic-
diate resign,ilmn of lhe culm*
board ul aldermen."
The clerk then read a hun
from ITnglmsr Clements 111 .111-
swer to a rei|iiest from Alderman Sihult/ aahisg liim hou
far he adhered to the 1907 re
port in his recent recOHHBCttda
lions.   IK- explained that   hc
was now in favor of beuchin*

Irwin moved thnl tbe letter lit
received and hwrrihtd on ilu
minutes Aldermen MiNcish
and MAM and also the
mavor objected to ibis for Unreason that it was imt just to
■jive any privilege to the communication in hand until the
other engineers were heard fruit,
mi similar lines.
It was contended by Abler
men Irwin and SchulU that lln
lettter contained much valualili
information from an engine)
of Ugh standing and cleared
up some vagus points of diller-
t in is in regard to Granville Sl
and Westminster Ave. The Motion was put and passed hv ,*
I to : vote, Aid. McNeish ami
McRae dissenting.
Alter the reading of the p t
lion Aid Fowler took exception to tin* clause charging liim
with ,1 breach of faith, lie
claimed the commissioners had
nol followed instructions
Aid Schult/ Moved that the
petition be referred to the clerk
In have all the signatures vt-ri
lied. The motion was seconded
In Aid Smith and passed with
Aid McNeish and McKae sa\
illg nav.
Aid MiKac s.ii.l lie had taken it upon himself to have his
resignation readv whn it was
askeil for fay such a large number of ratepavers.
Aid McNeish said he was
quite willing to abide hv thc
reporl Irom the men which thc
countil had authorised I" H'
porl on the grades ami this in
preference to submitting it ti
the people.   He considered tii.1
the majority of the council who
had favored a plebiscite a short
while ago wollld have a   better
chance with the ratepayers on
this account, vet he had his resignation in his hand ready to
be turned in if the olher aldermen would do likewise and h
lhe people settle the matter.
"II any of you gentlemen are
alraid of nomination," he |g.
claimed, "I will nominate anv
one of vou."
Altl. Irwin said he was in favor of giving the council another opportunity of dealing
with the difficult question, He
considered  than  an  alderman
.should not shirk his duty when
there were so manv difficulties
to be contended with and it
was his opinion that the council sliould exhaust al) thei.- re
sources before going to Unpeople. It was a question of
duty he averred,
Altl. McKae contended that lu
was taking a manly course in
tillering to follow out the wishes of lhe people in this respect
Aid. Schult/. referred to a former statement of the mayoi
in regard lo sewerage to which
His Worship promptly rcpliul
in ,1 similar strain.
At   this  point   the adherents
were becoming so Interested n
the debate than an adjournment nl 5 minutea was suggest
etl to allow the disturbance to
quid down
Mr. C, I''. Jachsoa said then
must he a gnat tension o( (u-l
ing when such a resolution as
had been passed at the recent
public meeting had been made
liv the ratepayers, lie inferred
that lhe aldermen who had
Inin elected to represent the
people were not doing their
duty.
lie    believed    that    on    this
grade qusalloa rested the foundation ol lhe young cilv and
uniil ilns was satisfactorily settled tm permanent improvement
louiil be accomplished,   He did
not see why '.he louncil were
maintaining their present atli
Hide anil he declared that when
the majority ol the ratepayer!
were in lavor ol lhe adoption
ol the engineers' report thai n
atone would be led unturned
until that was done. He claimed lhat every ratepayer sanc-
tiaiiitil tin* ai tiun of the ii'iin

had given their words lhat
thev w 1 mill abide bv  the   deei
sion This they hnd not done.
Alderman Irwin, he continued
ilaims he did not give his word
ami his statements have been
supported by Aid. Fowler. Mr
.lackson contended that the actions of the coUSCi] were throwing the cily back M vears antl
(or this reason thev were enemies ol Uu- ciiy. Strenuous objections were laken to this
Statement by some of the aldermen. Concluding the speaker
appealed to the aldermen as

again.
J. F. 0. C, Wood wanled li
know when lhe members o( the
council who were in favor of
the 1407 report knew thev were
in the majority whv thev pu
lhe citv to the needless expense
of the 14m loiiiinis.sion. He
also Inquired why thev went
hack on llieir pledged word t
accept the report when submitted and onlv pinning their
reasons on the statement that
il had not heen given according
to   instructions.
Aid. Fowler : "I am convinced does not conform to the Instructions." He gave one reason that the report of mo; If
recommended a bench of t pet
cent, at car line Intersections,
while the latter report cave I
to 2 per cent, benches.
Aid. Schult/. submitted  lit
tan from electrical engineers
in Tacoma, I,os Angeles, St.
I.ouis, Portland and Oakland
lo show that it was unsafe lo
operate slreet cars on steep
grades.    Two of the let tits Ma
led emphatically that it ••..-•
nnsafa to run care on a gr.nlr
of over 6 per cent.   Some  ol
the others stated that cars
were being operated in their respective cities oil grades as
high as 11 and 12 per cent.
Engineer Hanes claimed that
he had adhered to the 140; report and referred to that report
where it recommended bench
grades on streets having intersecting car lines and where it
was contemplated there might
be street car lines.
Engineer Thomson had given
as his opinion that if the city
became a commercial centre
ami not a suburban village that
there wollld be a succession of
car lines on east and west
streets from the waterfront up.
Engineer Hanes thought that
il was possible that a line
wuuld be put on the Ksplanade
some dny, There was one on
First streei. It wa.s possible
that when Third street was
opened through the Indian Mission lhat it would have a car
line. Fourth street llow had a
line on it lor a short distance
and that might be continued
through at some lulure time.
He also priiphesi/ed that a line
would be operating on Keith
Koad sonic dav. This left very-
few streets without car lines
on and in compliance with the
1907 reporl he had based his recent recommendations.
He lurther contended that it
was easier on trallic lo lake a
sleeper gratle for a short distance with a relief at the cross
Streets. Altl. Smith and Fowler declared thai that would
lead lo a congestion of trallic
but the engineei claimed thai
the horses would obtain a temporary rest while crossing this
benched portion.
Aid. Smith wanled lo know
what per cent, would be made
on I.onsdale provided Engineer
Thomson's report was adopted,
Would it not be over 11 p. c. ?
Engineer : "It would not  ex
iced 10.5."
Aid Smith : "I do not think
it."
In regard to resigning Alderman Smith said he had never
been a quitter and was not go
ing to be one in the present instance.
Aid. Schult/. was asked the
question that if the present in-
adequntC    cars   could    operate
with comparative safety mi an
X per cent, grade whv couldn't
cars properlv equipped operate
"ii a steeper grade.
Aid. Schult/ : "1 was refer-
ring to the slvle ol car, not to
tin* brakes.
The Mavor closed the discussion in the meantime wilh an
appeal (or an Immediate settlement of the vexed question.
Later on in lhe evening llu-
„Tadea arose again and Mr.
Henderson said there was alii
tie word called "compromise'
which would be useful in the
present case.
Mr. Percy King also addressed the council under that heading emphasizing that the wish
es ol lhe ratepavers were that
the aldermen hand in their resignation and let the people
take a plebiscite on lhe engin
eers' recommendations  as  Uu
issue.
As a closing feature tn one of
the most intereating  meetings
on gradea thai lias vel been
held Aid. McNeish addressed
Aid. Irwin with the .statement
"Vou are an advocate ol one
side, 1 am an advocate ol the
other I will hand in my resignation if you will hand in
voiirs .nnl we will go to Unpeople on tin- question at is
sue.''
Aid. Irwin replied that he
was imt afraid to earrv oul
what lie thought was his duty
"The matter is surrounded
with dillicullv and 1 am not a
(raid to give the council another Opportunity of dealing
with it."
The meeting did not dispers

gineer was instructed to pre
pare plans and specifications I' r

"Ysnlru." The race was open
to motor boat cruisers and
there were eight boats answer
ed to the starting gun. The
course was about bo miles in
length and included two runs
up the North Arm and return.
The race was practically free
from accident, and only twn
incidents were recorded where
the engines gave trouble. The
"Bachelor'' when about hall
of the course was overed retired owing to engine trouble,
hut all the others linished in
good style and the race will

Engineer Clement's
Report
Vancouver, H. C,
Mav :Kth,iuio.
To Uis Worship lhe Mayor and
Members of lhe City Council
ol North Vancouver
Oentlsnen,—Pursuant   to  a
letter dated May 4U1, Nli',
Iroiii your City Clerk, Mr.
Tims. Shepherd, advising me
lhat vour Council had the previous evening passed ths fol-
lowing resolution 1
"Resolved that Citv Engineer Clement ol Vancouver, and
City KngillfTf Thomson ol
Seattle, be invited ii> acl t-lottfl
with   ihe   City   Engineer   ot
Norlh Vancouver, lo tix the
permanent grades ol all nortii
and   south streets Ironi l'tubcs
to St.  David's, in accordance
with the recommendation ol the
engineers' report ol 1907."
I communicated with Mr.
Thomson, with a view to fixing
a date for a meeting, On Sat
urday, .May l.|th, 1410, Mr.
Thomson and 1 met vour engineer, Mr. Hanes, in Nortli Van
couver, ami viewed the silu.i
tion. Alter the interview the
same day, at the citv hall with
vour Mavor and several mem
hers o[ your Council, I interpreted the resolution to mean
lhat Mr. Thomson, Mr. Hants
and myself were comii.issi"iicil
to report, as to thc svstem ol
street grading we considered
best for vour city to adopt.
Since the above date I have
given the grade problem in
Nortii Vancouver very carelul
consideration, and have also, in
compliance with your request
carelullv considered the lei ter
of the .loth of April from the
general manager of the H. C.
Electric Railway Co., and have
discussed the grade question
with the Company's engineer. 1
have also obtained information
from the engineers of the street
railwav companies in Tacoma,
Washington, Portland, Oregon,
Oakland, San l-'rancisco and
I.os Angeles ill Caliroinia, as
to lhe grades on which tliex art-
operating, electric street cars,
the brakes used, the satisfaction the brakes are giving and
the (rci|ucncv of accidents.
The lollowing statement
shows the rates of grades oil
whnh ears are operated ill lllc
above mentioned cities willi
the exception of Tacoma, and
the engineers of the dilli-rcnt
Companies staled that the
brakes employed worked salis-
faitorilv, and lhat they hace
been pi.nti.ally free from aeei-
deiits :
I.os Angeles,  11 per cent.
Oakland, 11 per cenl.
Poll land, 11 per cent.
San Kr.uiiisco, il.i per u-lil.
The manager of the sin.it
railw.n company '11 Tacouu
does not approve of grades exceeding h per cent., although
thev do operate ovc steeper
grades in that city.
When Messrs. Ilermon, Dawson, Cleveland and 1 reported
to vour council in 1907 on   the
subject ol street grades, we
pointed out the advantages and
disadvantages which would acne   through   the   diL-ptii-ii   oi
either ths benching or straight
grade system, and recommended the benching of the north
antl south streets where they
intersect seat and west sl reels,
with tile exception of those 011
which streei railway tracts existed or on which it was proponed to lav tracks in the future. The lollowing are the
clauses in the report of 11)117 :
"As the grades of the north
anil south streets are verv
sleep, the rate being over eight
|ier cenl, antl as it vvill be iiei
essary to keep the rale of grade
on the streets on which it is
your intention ' lo operate an
electric railway service, as low-
as possible, we recommend
that the grades of the north
and souih streets on which
slleet railway tracks now exist and also of those on which
il is proposed to lav tracks in
the future, be made as straight
as possible, except where lliev
Intersect cast and wesl  streets,
provided with street railway
tracks or on whuh it is vour
intention to construct railwav
tracks. Al these intersections
wc would recommend that the
norlh    and   south   streets    bc
benched Ior the full width   ol
lhe Intersecting street and that
the rate ol grade of lhe benched portion be not greater than
three per cent.
With regards to the north
and south streets on which
there are no slreet railwai
ti.nks and those on which Unlaying of track is not COUtem*
ph.ted, we would recommend
that thev be benched wheie
tbey intellect east and west
streets, and thai lhe rale of
glade of the benched portion be
about two per cent., or not
over two and one quarter per
cent. While WC are of opinion
that benching should he avoid
ed as much as possible on the
main thoroughlares, or those
travelled by the ears of the
Electric Railway Co., we feel
that ii would be unduly sacrificing the east alld wesl slreets
if all lhe norlh and south
streets were cut through   them
without benching."
Since the report of the   Commission, ol which I was a niein-
ber in 1407, advancement has
been made in slreet railway
engineering and it is now possible by the use of improved
brakes (magnetic traction, etc. I
to   operate   electric   cars   with
comparative salety on Redes
which were formerly considered
unsafe.
in January, 1909, I reported
to the council of the City ol
Vancouver, pointing out the advisability of adopting the
■inching svstem, and after the
•object had heen thoroughly
debated in council, mv recom
iiu-ndatioti was adopted and is
now being earried out, except in
the case of two or three main
thoroughfares where tin grades
had previously, been established.
The rale of grade I have adopted in Vancouver (or the flattened or benched portion of the
streets   at intersections is  one
and one-half 1[',) per cent.
After carefully considering
the grades of your streets, the
undoubted luture development
of your city and the probable
trend of travel to lhe east and
west streets as soon as the
Second Narrows llridge has
been erected, 1 am ol opinion,
that adopting the benching svslein of grading streets would lain the best interests ol your
cilv, at the same time I must
point out, that it is not by anv
means impossible to grade fair-
v steep slreets without benching, but I woultl only recommend such a course where necessarv to insure public saletv,
or where a grade had been   so
ng established thai the compensation of the owners ol
abutting properly wuuld billion- than the liniiiicipalih
would care to undertake.
Trusting that lliis report will
meet with your approval, 1 remain, yours truly,
iSgd.)    w. A. CLEMENT.
RECORD MONTH
11 is expected that some arrangement will be effected in
the near luture between the
Great Northern Railway Company and the provincial government wherebv the new passenger depot of the latter coinpanv will be erected in New
Westminster during the present
summer.
The North Vancouver Cily
Perries Ltd. established a record nionth iii May of this
year. The total receipts a
BtOUntad to {8,513.60 as against
the previous record reached in
April, 1410 of S<\75o.
It i.s believed lhat the new
record has never been touched
in the history oi lhe concern
since its initial inauguration
and during the time of ownership by the North Vancouver
Kerrv and J'ower Co.
Other than the ordinary summer trallic there was apparent
Iv nothing to warrant this
large advance and the only
conclusions which can in justice
Ik- arrived at are that the influx of settlers and summer residents is becoming more marked and thnt the city in consequence is increasing its population at a rapid pace.

he slated, hut at a recent meeting thev went back disgracefully on Iheir promise because il
did not lit in with their views.
Continuing, Mr. Jackaon wanted to know if the people were
going to allow the progress ol
the city to he molded by expert
engineers or were thn going to

Mr. Percy Kin}; declared that
everv nne was surprised aiul
disgusted at the actions of the
members ol the city council ex
eept those who had supported the engineers'   leeominenda*
getting to he a serlOUS   matter
ami particularly su in reference
to sewerage whieh was Bowing

in a number of eases. The council have heen so busy un

commented, lie considered that
it was unfair and was   sapping
the energy of an official to

He wondered if thr preaent civic government was a failure.
A voice: "It is in Nortli Vancouver."
Mr. Henderson thought under
present conditions he would favor a board uf control so thai
public matters woultl receive

He thought that  the reaolu-

The reaolution was as lollows ; commented

Mr. C. K. Jackson was elms- urate. He thought the

that it had heen called pursuant to a petition requesting

Mr. .laeksnn enumerated the

the reporl and he did not see]
the reason whv the public;
money should be wasted by its|
non-acceptance.
He noticed tha change of attitude o| Engineer Clements
since giving his report in 1907
wring in later developments in
street car engineering when 1!
was now pussible to operate
cars  on   grades   where it   was
previously thought Impracticable, Air. Wood gave Mr. Clements credit fur being man
enough to alter his opinion but
lie (Mr. Wood) hadn't much tat
for a man who "had an opinion JO years ago and could not
change his mind."
Mr. Martinson said he did
not own any property on Lonsdale Ave., tlicrclure lie must In-
biased in (avur of benchwrades,
He called attention to the nut
thai Air. Clements had changed
his opinion as to the best system of grades lo he adopted in
lllis city and he Inferred that
iiic council wonld neither take
their own engineer's advice
neither wuuld thev adhere to
the recommendations of the
commission oi engineers. He
thought that the council should
be consulting engineers in
some locality where they could
have more scope.
Alt    Martinson   enumerated
lhe number of buildings whiih
were contemplated for Lonsdale Ave., but averred thai
[uur limes as much building
would be stopped un the cast
and west streets in the city il
straight grades were adopted,
The speaker noted Alderman
Irwin as saying "llial if M.*.
Hanes could not come to thc
decision ol the council thev
could Iind one whu cniild." Ho
said Aid. Schult/. was in lavor
of bench grades or al least had
agreed to accept the engineers'
report, "but vnn have just to
look up his past ni onl tu see
how   changeable   he   is,"    Mr.
Uartinaon commented.
lie concluded by saying that
"Air Ala* knew whal he wanted and he stayed bv it."
Air .lackson said he would
like to hear Irom the other side.
A voice : "Then is no other
side." Nu response was made
to the retpiest ol lhe chairman
and he commented that it was
strange thai al all thc public
meetings there had been a no-
tuc.tlilc absence of anv ob|ec
lions in lhat connection He
said he was sorry lhat Alder
man   Irwin  had  not   attended
am ul tin* meetings.
Aid. McNeish said he was nnl
afraid to step down if he was
nnt wanled and assured them
thai his answer would he lead]
when the petitions were presented next Monday evening
Aid McKae remarked lh.il
he hail heen characterized .is   a

suited him, hut Iiii- most pleasant thing tii know was thai
khl opinion had suited the public w hnse trust he held. The
speaker contended that there
was tno iniiih talk in the council meetings ami thnl it was
disappointing to him lhat six
months hail gone hy and M
