to the effect that the communication
(rom Messrs. Kendall,Sewi 11 & Co
submitted a week ago, comprising

the city auditors, completed the
documentary portion of the special
audit. The letter requests that as
the two reports were given publication, that all reports, letters, balance sheets and other documents

ol Alderman May,seconded by Alderman Irwin, it was resolved that

Alderman Smith,chairman of the
waterworks committee, submitted
in writing a protest against the j
dismissal ol waterworks Foreman
E. J. Peck,on the ground that Mr.
Peck it a faithlul and efficient ofu- j
cer,whose removal would prove an
injury to the interests involved. In
support ol his communication, AI
deunan Smith slated that no complaints had ever been received
irom any source whatever as to
the manner in which Mr. Pec',,
perlormed hit dutict. He was ;>
good worker and he (Aid. Smith 1
could not see why this action shouh
be taken. The man whom it wa*.
proposed to appoint as Mr. Peck's
successor had previously held the
position,but alter repeated failures
to prove himself capable to discharge his duties at all times, had
been displaced, and now it was
proposed to reinstate him when

The mayor called the attention
of Alderman Smith to tbe lact that
no successor to the position had
been actually appointed, and lhat
the matter ol Mr. Peck's dismissal
had been decided by a meeting of
the water*.oiks committee, and
could be reconsidered only upon
request ol a majority of that committee. Aldermen Wheeler and
Irwin intimated that as members
ol that committee they were not
favorable to a reconsideration. The

director, ol the Norlh Vancouver

lo lace with respect to the erection

milted a statement showing that
the building with accestoriet had
cost $458971, of which amount
J3000 was provided by way of loan,
$791.00 had been raised by donation; there were $150 in subscriptions still unpaid, leaving a net
deficit of Jf.4H.-j7. He intimated
that should council choose to proffer their assistance hy way of loan
the board would be content, and
that should council be pleased to
appoint a committee to go into the
matter the board of directors
would gladly meet the committee,
and provide every item of informa-
tiou that might be required. Councillor Nye supported the statements of Mr. Philip and hoped lor
the co-operation ol the council in
placing the society on a solid
financial basis. A committee comprising Aldermen Irwin, Crickmay
and Wheeler, was appointed to

In the same discussion upon
Japanese immigration, Mr. Fisher,
minister of agriculture, said:
"Many of them may come in. I
am not so much afraid as some
people that many ol them wi'l
come in. There was an allusion
made this afternoon to a proposal
to take 10,000 acres of land in the
North West and cultivate it as a
Japanese farm. 1 do not know
that there will be any great injury
to the people ol Canada to take
10,000 acres of the North West,
which is not highly cultivated and
which is not highly productive,and
place it under Japanese methods
oi cultivating. 1 do not know
(hat it would hurt, and 1 have confidence that if a few thousands, or
a few tens of thousands, or, I do
not hesitate to say,a few hundreds
of thousands of Japanese came
into Canada, the present Canadian
people will still rule this 'and. For
these iiasons 1 am not so very
niinii afraid of Japanese immigration "   (Hansard 1908, p. na.)'

The construction of the Second
Narrows bridge is a matter of such
supreme moment to North Van
couver city and district, as well as
to the entire population adjacent
to Burrard Inlet, that public interests demand the early elimination
ol everv element of weakness from
the situation, and the strengthening ol the position of the promoting municipalities by every possible
The granting of a subsidy by the
dominion government has removed
a formidable obstacle from the
path, and has brought the realization ol the bridge scheme perceptibly nearer. Ibis subsidy has relieved the situation, not only by
providing ready money, without
which the project could not In-
carried to completion, but It has
likewise opened the way lor the
provincial government to make a
grant for thc adding of traffic features to the structure, without
which its usefulness would bfl
marred to an extent to which no
one who is seized nl the situation
cares to contemplate The do
minion government declined lo
assist the Fraser river bridge, it is
understood,as a traffic bridge,alter
a provincial subsidy had been
granted, on thc ground that it had
no power to grant subsidies for
public highways. The order is
reversed,however.as to thc Second
Narrows bridge, so that the dominion government, having voted
a subsidy for a railway bridge,there
is no reason why the provincial
government should not vote a subsidy for adding a traffic bridge to
the same structure. Hence two
formidable difficulties have been
Il is now generally conceded
that the time bas arrived when the
entire strength ol those constituencies favorable to the project must
be concentrated upon the one purpose, ol securing favorable action
upon the part of the provincial
government in the mailer of an
adequate subsidy for the Iralln
features of the brnlgt Once this
end is attained, there tan be no
reasonable doubt that Ihe bridge

Al to the matter of Bowen Island, Mr. Cowan had taken an
amusing stand, by saying I al il
