Ratepayers' Association
Mr. Thomas, oi the N. V.
Light, Heat Ji Gas company,
addressed the members of llic
Ratepayers' association meeting in the city last evening upon
the invitation ol tho president,
Mr. C. F. .lackson, in regard to
tlieir negotiations witii the citv
wilh regard to operating a gas
plant in North Vancouver.
"Wc want something to assure safety to our invested inure.sis," declared Mr. Thomas.
"We do not want to invest our
money and have another company, the B. E. Electric Railway company, for instance, ti
come in and install a competing
pint" He stated lurther lhat
he had considerable experience
in Uie gas business in this country and knew something of tlu-
difficulties that attend the nursing of a gas company through
its early stages.
In regard to statements made
by Mr. Stamford, representing
the II. C. Gas Construction syndicate who are also applying
(or a gas franchise in this city
at the present time, he had to
say that Mr. Stamford had had
something to do with the Vancouver gas works in its initial
stages but that later, he (Mr.
Thomas) was called in to carry
lhc works on to compleliou.
Circumstances ol something ol
a similar nature occurred in
Nanaimo, New Westminster and
Victoria, where Mr. Stamtord
had el,iimed he was instrumental in managing gas systems.
Mr. Thomas slated that his
company did not want an exclusive franchise but did want
some protection (or their capital in case ol a competing company applying for a franchise.
He lurther said there were i.ip-
italists in Vancouver now who
were willing to put in Jio,o<*o
i.ich .ts soon as the ciuip.i.i •
could show that they were sltj-
licit-nily protected. Mr. T. K.
Wilson, legal representative ol
the company, gave a review ol
the position in which thc company was in since negotiations
April, 1909, to the present turn.
As reported elsewhere, the cily
passed a bylaw in April, wosi,
granting the N. V. Light, Heat
I Gas company carton privileges on euriain en iit .ous, otic

K. P. DANCE
A very pleasant time was eti-
' joyed by the local K. IV s at
their dance held iu the Horticultural hall last evening.. The at-
; tendance numbered about sixty
couples. The features of the
(UtflCe were the excellent iiiusie
provided bv llarpur's four-piece
orchestra and the line condition
in which the floor was in. However, in spite of these conditions
one fact stood out prominently
and that was that Norlh Vancouver is growing very rapidly
and accommodations sufficient
to meet demands a year ago are
now inadequate. The local
brethren are now numbering the
days when work will have been
started on tlieir Caslk- hall
which is expected to meet all
to-dato requirements.
1 At a late hour Mr. S. Walker
brought on tlic, refreshments and
for a half hour the demands ol
the inner sell were accommodated. Following refreshments
dancing was resumed until
about 2 a. 111. when late cars
which were in attendance con-
veved the merrymakers home.

I    INOUEST ON CAI'ILANO
VICTIM
Thc body ol Jai. Hamilton,
loremau ol the Vancouver waterworks at Capilano, waa lound
Saturday morning, in a log jam
about 50 yards irom the mouth
of lhc i-apilano river by two
Imll,ms, Joiiii) Dick and Edward Joseph.
Since the drowning, which oe-
1 currcd at the Capilano dam, on
the 14th ol last month, no trace
ol cither ol the bodies had been
■ iouuet lill then, when   the   two
Indiana who were cutting some
logs ai the place uientioud,dia*
covered the body floating, apparently treed by their opera-
nous in moving the logs. Tho
authorities at Vancouver were
•lotilii-d aud instructions were
sent Uo take the remains to
North Vancouver, where the inquest was held in the city hall,
by Coroner Diplock.
While being in the water ior
nearly three weeks, decomposition was barely noticeable, und
only a couple ol bruises ou thc
head, oue over lhe eye and the
olher on the back ol the skull,
and the missing shoes, were the
only evidences ol the grim cir-
ciiiiistaiiics ol thc tragedy.
The inquest was held at 3
o'clock Saturday alternoon,and
the lollowing were empanelled
on the jury: T. Shepherd,lore-
man, K. Tarn, K. Redding,   T.
Prime, *'. Ucitorow, and U.A.
Mfljtaa
1 hi; lirst witnesses called were
Jouuy Uuk and Edward .lostpn
They tcstilu-d as to Uie circum-
Itaacei attending lhc lnuling ol
lhc body lhat morning, while
moving logs in the Lapilano
near the mouth.
lu the interval in the proieed-
ings, which occurred untal the
witnesses Irom the dam had arrived, thc coroner made rcler-
'eiiee lo the delegatian irom the
j Trades a-iui Labor Council, Vancouver, who were requesting the
Provincial Government lo a-
nitlld the Coroner s ael, so as
lo make it compulsory 10 hold
inquests ou caaea ol this nature.
Coroner Diplock read the act
relating to this and expressed-
thc opinion that the point was
covered accordiag u> tns interpretation Uu jury, alter con-
isidcring the lads, handed the
eoroner a written slatellient,
ii.uiuil): "A. U. Diplock, Coroner. Thc lollowing jury at an
inquest held this day 111 the dtj
hall, Norih Vancouver on the
body ol Geo* Hamilton, beg to
report ihal they have looked into lhe Coroner s act and do not
see the necessity tor a delegation interviewing the government lo make a compulsory ior
.1 coroner to hold au inqucsl, as
111 thc opinion ot the undersigned. Sec. b, Chap. 50, ol the revised statutes of British Columbia, already provides for
.stub Wing done. (Signed) by
the six jurors .nul dated at
North Vancouver the uth day
ol February, 1910."
Evidence  was  resumed   upon
