NOKTIl VANCOUVfc.it, B. C, FKIUAY, JULY 10, 1908.
At Monday evening's session
of the city council there were present Aldermen May, Crickmay,
Smith and Hraim. Mayor Kealy
A letter was read from the direc
tora ol the North Vancouver Ferry
and Power Co., to the effect that
a committee representing them
will meet the council in the council chamber on Tuesday, July 7th,
st 4 o'clock p.m The Mayor
stated that the requisite notice had
already been sent the respective
aldermen.    Letter received.
Under reports of committees accounts ss follows were ordered

school trustees J417; board of

1613.44; health committee $73.
The items for the fire and water
committee included several bills of
expenses at fires which have recently occurred. The Mayor suggested that where the fire was
traceable to the set of the owner
a statement of account should be
rendered him for the amount of
expenditure incurred. The council concurred and this will be done.
The city clerk read the minutes
of s meeting of the board of works
recommending ss follows: That
the city engineer be granted an
apprentice in his department.
That the proposed form of local
improvement petition be approved
and printed. That tenders be
again call-id for for clearing a
portion of the cemetery site. Items
all sdopted with the exception of
the msttsr of sn apprentice (or the
city engineer, which was laid over
until Monday on account of the
fact that it clashes with s recommendation previously passed by
the council that s rodman be employed. The tenders for clearing
a portion of the cemetery site are
to be in by July 27th.
Minutes of a meeting of the
waterworks committee, recommending that the extension of the
waterworks system along 14th St.,

being done by the city workmen.
The Mayor directed the foreman to
dismiss the man in charge and employ another.

to 2-3, lsnd rate for interest and
sinking fund 6 mills and for school
purpose. 3 '/} mills.
The liquor license by-law was
read a third time snd reported
complete with amendments.
Americans Celebrate.
The first contingents of the
peaceful invasion of United Ststes
citizens, which took possession of
the city on Saturday last, began to
Srrive at noon snd their numbers
steadily swelled, until a thousand
could not be considered an overestimate of their strength. Ed. F.
Allen, thc general secretary ol thc
American Club, Vsncouver, scted
ss master of ceremonies and every
item on the programme moved
with regularity. The proceedings
proper opened with the mass meet
ing, held about the band stand at
Larson's grounds. The grounds
and stand presented a very pretty
and gala appearance in their dress
of flags and bunting. The Union
Jack and the Stars and Stripes appeared side by side wherever you
turned, and this was but typical
of the goodwill which marked the
co-mingling of the British and tin*
American representatives who
gathered on the grounds.
When the assemblage was called
to order, there were on the platform Col. Dudley, retiring consul
general of the U.S., at Vancouver;
Hon. Geo. M. West, the present
counsel general and successor to
Col. Dudley; his worship, Mayor
Kealy, and Geo. H. Cowan, K.C.,
Col. Dudley acted as chairman
and first called upon Mayor Kealy
to give the address of welcome.
Mavor Kealy, in a few well
chosen and effective sentences,e.\
pressed his pleasure in welcoming
so many American citizens to the
city, extended to them the freedom
of the city, and wished for them a
royal good time.
Col. Dudley, in replying, relerred to the fact that this was the
loth anniversary of the declaration
of independence that he had spent
in B.C., snd while it would probably be his last, owing to thr fact
that his sffairs would necessitate
his removal, nevertheless he would
have the pleasure of lingering
sometime yet in the city, which he
had learned to regard very highly.
He arrived in Vancouver on Aug.
19th, 1897, and had received only
kindness and friendship from the
people of thc province. He re
(erred to the wonderful growth of
Vancouver during his term of office. Referring to the 132nd anniversary of the signing of the
Declaration of Independence, In-
said that that document had elevated mankind as had no other
document before or since. The
thirteen states were fighting the
battle of all liberty seeking people
in Ihe struggle which they successfully maintained. They labored
under a long list of grievances
which they sustained amid many
unsuccessful remonstrances for
many years. No British colony of
today would tolerate for any length
of time the indignities which those
colonies bore for a long time.
Geo. Washington himsell declared that they had no intention of
separating from the mother country and that they were fighting
only for Englishmen's rights.
Canada today would not brook a
fraction of the disabilities heaped
upon those struggling colonies.
No two countries should have
closer social and commercial relations than Britain and the States,
especially Canada. It was his joy
to know that during his term of
office the mercantile and kindred
relationship have brought B. C.
and the coast states closer together. Today we know each
other better than ever before, and
we have well nigh (orgotten the
border line that lies between us.
The two peoples have a common
origin, literature, interests and
mission. The common law of
England is the foundation of the
law of the United States. With
liberty regulated by law this system ot civilization has been worked out to the most perfect system
that the world has ever known.
Col. Dudley then introduced his
successor in oflice as one higher in
rank than himself and for whom he
bespoke the same courteous kindness that he himself had received
at the hands of both American and
Canadian citizens.
Hon. Geo. M. West, consular
general ol the United States in
Vsncouver, after a few introductory remarks, referred to the De-
claration of Independence, as the
first step to the formation of an
independent nation, while the 132
anniversary finds that nation one
ol the foremost of the world. Wise
statesmen have risen to guide af
fairs snd now no clouds darken the
sky and she occupies first place in
the respect snd confidence of the
nations. He referred to President
Roosevelt as the energetic, virile,
typical representative of those
statesmen who had carried the
nation to its present proud position. He expressed the hope that
his own associations with the people would be of the same pleasant
character as those of his predecessor, and would consider himself
fortunate if, at the termination of
him term of office, he occupied a
similar position in the confidence
and regard of all the people as
that enjoyed by Col. Dudley, for
whom he had heard expressed on
all sides only words of the utmost kindness, regard and confidence.
Col. Dudley, in a few highly
complimentary remarks, then in
troduced Mr. Geo. Cowan, K. C,
of Vancouver. After bearing his
testimony to the high respect in
which Col. Du-'ley is held, the
speaker observed that one great
song of rejoicing was today asct ml
ing throughout the United States.
That song had its origin 132 years
ago; it was prolonged through the
centuries; it resounds across a
continent and it finds its echo in
the heart of every true Anglo-Saxon. This day belonged not to the
United States alone, but the results of the deed which it commemorates were the heritage of all
peoples for all time. He did not
regard that act as a mere declaration of independence, but as a
stupendous fact that upon that occasion a nation was founded upon
principles of justice; a government
was formed that derives every unit
ol its power from the people. We
are one in admiration ol this
masterstroke of statesmanship.
The preparation for that result
began centuries ago, when the
solemn rights ol man were recognized upon the cross of Calvary.
That cross in emblem was planted
by Columbus upon San Salvador.
But for that cross he had not sailed, and hut for that cross there
had been no culmination of thc
principles (or which it stands as
exemplified in the constitution of
the United States. The speaker
here digressed to pay a strong and
graceful tribute to the influence of
womanhood as exemplified al the
cross, in the sailing of Columbus
and in every great and good work
on the earth.
Going hack to colonial days,
those colonists from England were
prosperous, and well behaved, and
they brought their social customs,
their political sentiments, which
became the foundation of the government of the United States and
Canada. To that country whence
they came we owe a common debt
of gratitude. The speaker strong
ly contrasted the British method
of colonization with that of Spain
England had regard for private
rights and public protection ol
her colonists. Those New England colonists, exercising the
tights of individual citizenship,
were ready lor that awful day when
they must needs rise against the
invasion of their inborn rights.
To maintain rights when rights
are in jeopardy is English to the
core. To the eternal honor ol
those colonists, be it said, that
only with the greatest reluctance
and in protection ol their sacred
righis did they enter upon war
with the mother who bare them.
Unfortunately in England at that
time there remained the relic ol
feudalism and militarism which
made it possible for weak men to
so administer affairs that a separ
ate government became the inescapable necessity ol the situa
We in Csnada have attained
equal, if not larger liberty, but
through an accident of time wc
have not been compelled to separate in order to secure those rights.
Hence Irom Canada goes out an
uninterrupted flow and In tin
United Stales a perhaps interrupt
ed flow of affection to the mother
and nurse ol those principles thit
give the liberty snd rights which
we in this country enjoy. The in
violable and inalienable rights ol
the individual is the underlying
principle of both systems. Th
oriental nations arc building upon
the opposite system of the divine
right of sovereigns. Upon this
foundation they are now attempt
ing to build a superstructure pat
terned after our civilization. The
result will be a new and powerful
civilization but not capable of de
velopment  equal to that founded
upon the Anglo Saxon principle
Closing, the speaker exclaimed,
let us resolve that forgetting the
interests and dividing passions oi
the past and turning to the future,
that our children may bless our
day and their fathers, as we are
privileged to bless ours.
The speeches were interspersed
with patriotic selections from lhe
orchestra and were followed hy
vocal renditions by an excellent
quartette. A basket picnic served
to replenish thc inner man. This
was followed by a brilliant display
of fireworks in the evening and
the proceedings of a most successful day were terminated by a grand
Seymour Creek Bridge
The district council, at their
meeting on the 19th of June.let the
contract for the approach roads
for the bridge and also for the
building of the abutment to Holt
& Doagil, and at their meeting on
the 3rd inst. tenders were ordered
to be invited for the steel work.
The point at which the creek is
to be bridged is about 800 yards
north of Keith Road, where the
stream is confined between well
protected banks. On the west
side the new road leaves the Keith
Road 200 yards west of the creek,
passes fairly through the Seymour
indian reserve and through district lots 612 and 620. On the
east the road goes through lot 676,
crossing the new Vancouver pipe-
road and joining the Keith Road
800 yards east of the creek.
The bridge is to have a span of
140 leet and to be of thc high
truss order, with a clear roadway
of it' feet in width and a head
room of 17 feet 6 in. The roadway Is to be 12 feet above iln*
stream. The abutments and wing
walls are to be concrete. The
bridge is approached on both sides
by so easy grsde and rosds have
a width ot 21 feet.
I otil llw completion ol the new
bridge the temporary bridge (or
light traffic immediately above
Keith Road gives access to the
esst of the Seymour.

at the present lime was carefully
considered, and every sincerity was
manifest upon the part of both
parties, in endeavoring to find
some feasible method whereby outstanding differences might be sat
isfactorily adjusted. While Ihere
was some sentiment upon thc part
of the aldermen to the effect that
it would be well to deter negotiations until the judiciary reading of
the agreement was had in September, this position was not passed,
and the council ultimalel^yk|)point-
ed a committee to formulate the

One ot the most itnportaht and
wiili* reaching movements, relative
to the development of the district.
which has yet appeared, is the recent proposal "I tl"' Swayne Cop
per Company to construct a ground
tram up l.ynn creek to tlieir nun

every stamp of genuineness. The
report Ol Mining Engineer J. W.
Eva, submitted to the district
council last week, gives every assurance that the claims of the company arc ol exceptional value.
Mr. Eva reports three veins on
the property, two ol which have
already been crosscut. The insl
vein is 30 .feet wide, and is veil
strong, with well defined hanging
and loot walls. The second vein
is 40 feet wide, carrying a somewhat lower grade of ore than is

tap the No. 1 vein at a depth ol

has yet an estimated distance ol
5 10 leet to run in order to catch
the vein. When tins tunnel is
completed it is confidently expected lhat the claims will have passed
the prospect stage and will take
rank as mines, lt is expected that
the three veins will unite wiih

tion. Received with thanks.
From J. W. Eva, with report ol
trip to the claims of the Swayne
Copper Company, Limited, on
Lynn Creek. Received. From
Dr. Swayne, president of the
Swsyne Copper Co., Ltd., with a
request for a franchise to construct
and operate s trsmway up Lynn
Cresk to the company's mines.
The tram will be known as the
Lynn Valley Tramway Co., Ltd.,
and will be operated mainly for
the purposes of the mines of the
company, although they would be
prepared to handle logs, freight or
passengers for the entire distance
from the mouth of Lynn Creek to
its source. The company wishes
a fifty year franchise. Councillor
Robson observed thst one very de
sirable advantage of this applies
tion is Ihe fact that the company
is prepared to begin construction
at once snd to have the tramline
in operation ss quickly as men and
money could do it. On motion of
Councillors Nye and Robson the
matter was referred to the city solicitor for advice and laid over for
a special meeting at the call of the

wotks to report. A bid was submitted by certain parlies for the
labor in connection with planking
the Lynn Creek bridge, but the
figure was double the cost of day
labor. Councillor Robson reported thst Mr. Ross had spoken to
him with reference to the building
of the road past his property.
District engineer submitted specifications and tenders are to be
called for. A plan for a new road
through D.L. 673 was examined
snd accspted.

of three miles. The engineer reported thst the bridges ire out of

An application was submitted
for a road through D.L. Hot and
2026, for a distance of 3440 feet.
This road will require about j)j
acres, which will cost $3640, and
will necessitate a Irontage tax ol
fifty cents a foot. Laid over for
further information.

work is done neither cheaper nor
belter than it could be done by
local men. We have some of the
best mechanics in the country living right here, and whilst I like to
see other cities prospering, yet I
believe in Jack tar's motto: " A
messmate before a shipmate."
I would suggest that in order to
encourage local industry, a tax in
some way should be applied on all
goods brought in that could be
produced here. For instance, a
wharfage charge on every load of
lumber would soon help the mill-
men here and enable them to
launch out in improving their

could demise a means, but it appears to me that it is about time
to stop talking and get in and do
something.    Yours truly,

Patronize Home Industry
To THI ElllTOK 111   I HI  EXI'KISS.
Dear Sir,—I wish to express my
appreciation of your admirable editorial in a recent issue in reference
to patronizing home products, especially the lumbir industry,
which is striving to establish itself
in this locality. It ippeirs the
majority of people who build here
have not s 'park of patriotism in
their make up, when they ignore
the lactories in their own town and
their product, which is made by
white men and spend their money
in another, fattening the jap and
Chinese; and ultimately their
money goes out ol lhc country sl-,
together. It is not only in lhis\J-IFE
line, thc ssme applies to sll goods.
We have recently been glad to see
boot stores snd others open here,
yet every day people may be seen
with these goods coming oH thc
boat. In my own line of business
there are several houses being
painted by outside parties, and 1
