A letter was read from H. V.
Smith, secretary of the ratepayers' association,advising the
council of the meeting under
the uitspices of the association
that evening, and asking thai
iTuncil arrange its business to
allow aldermen who were candidates to attend the meeting.
Received and filed.
The delaved letter from Manager A. G. Terry, of the B.C. Kl.
Ry. Co., relerred to last week,
was read.
A letter from Postmastir J.
A. McMillan, in explanation of
the delay in delivery of the a-
bove letter, stated that there
had been an extra amount of
mail matter that day, and as
local and outside mail matter
had been deposited in the same
box, some of this mail had not
been sorted until the next morning, among which was the letter referretl to. Since that time
a separate box for local mail
has been installed, which will
greatly facilitate delivery. Letter received.
The N. V. Land & Improvement Company wrote, advising
the council that they had tleui-
i.iteil as a lane the lot described as lot "A" block hb, miIkIi-
vision 271. Referred to the solicitor lor completion.
Manager A. 0. l'erry wrote,
advising the council thai the
railway crossing requested al
the corner of 4th streei and
yueensbury avenue, had heen

In acknowledged with thanks.
The lirst annual report of the
Xorth Vancouver general hospital was submitted, showing
that during eight months tin
hospital had cared Ior eighteen
patients, ol whom ten were inside and eight outside patients,
while three were cases ol bad
accident.   Received,
Mayor Kealy gave a verbal
report of the delegation lo the
convention ol the union of B.C.
municipalities, with special relerence to a uniform system of
municipal accounting, the definition ol a householder under
the municipal clauses act, and
the choice of this city as the
place ol meeting for the next
Aid. Irwin supplemented the
mayor's report, by relerence to
the plan considered by the convention, to have the provincial
government establish a government bureau ot information in
Vancouver, where those districts which so chose might
maintain permanent exhibits ol
their products, with such olher
means of advertisement as they
might wish, and where government maps, pamphlets, etc.,and
general information concerning
the province, might readily be
obtained al any time.
The report was received and
a vote of thanks accorded the
Aid. Crickmay, chairman ol
the lire and light couiniittee, reported thai in consultation
wilh lhe architect, it had been
decided inadvisable lo put in an
additional healing pipe from
lhe lurnace Ior the dormitory,
imt lo recommend ihai a Hue bt
cut in lhe chimney and a stove
installed. Recommendation a-
Aid. Sinilh, chairman ol the
waterworks committee, explained the recent difficulty at  the
intake. Between the stream antl
the intake, a part of the line
runs under a ceinenl protective
surface. Anchor ice had found
its wav under this cement, with
the result that the passage had
lie, mm fni/i*li and stopped the
walcr It had become necessary to break through this solid
cement and to clear out lhe pas
sage underneath.
Aid. Irwin was of opinion
that now that a plumbing inspector has been appointed, it
would be well to re-inspect tl
connections already made, in
order to make improvements
for the protection of service
Aid.Smith thought that house
j taps should not be allowed to
run in order to prevent Iree/
ing. Householders should use
. the stop and waste for.this pu
j pose. There was more watei
going through the pipes at pri -
I sent than during the hottest
, summer season.
Aid. Wheeler  did   not   agree
I with this position.   Because the
mains and the pipes therefrom
to the houses are so near   the
surface, users should be allowed  to  keep the taps  running.
The stop and waste would  empty the pipes within the house,
but that was not where the difficulty arose,   but in the pipes
! in the street, and the only way
! to prevent these freezing wa.s lo
allow the taps lo run.
I   Aid. Crickmay declared   that
, there was one place at any rate
1 where city workmen had dug  I
| ditch and actually left the main
,exposed.     The  main  on   17th
street is frown practically solid
! The difficulty is chielly iu the
I pipes in the streets.
Aid. Braim agreed with   this
position, and evidenced his per
I sonal experience  in  trying   to
\ keep the water running in linns
es owned by him.
Aid. Smith, as chairman    ol
the city waterworks committi(
brought in lhe lollowing recommendation,   "That    the   water
a mains and service pipes be laid
I at a depth of not less than two
, feet beneath the surface;   that
pipes running into a basement
lie properly Ixixed, and packed
with sawdust or other suitabli
material; that service pipes   in
every case tie litted with a stop
and waste, and that no taps in
1 allowed to run continuously."
The   recommendation   was ,i
dopted and ordered on to next
year's council,
Bylaw No. 53, to grant a
franchise to the North Vancouver Heat, Light oi Oca Company, was reconsidered and li-
jnally passed, subject lo the ap-
; proval of the city solicitor. The
mayor and clerk to sign the bylaw should the solicitor not require any important changes,
otherwise a special meeting ol
the council to lie called.
A recommendation was pass
ed to thc new council, lhat they
consider (avorablv the request
of City Engineer Hanes, that
he be permitted to study conditions in Seattle and Tacoma,
before proceeding to draw plans
for local street intersections.
City Treasurer Woods read a
preliminary report, showing
that the ex|>enditiircs lor the
year by the respective depart
incuts li.nl been kept on the
whole well within the appropriations.
On motion, Mavor Keah was
requested to vacalc lhe chair
iind Aid. Smith was appointed
chairman. Aid. lrwiu, in a
(ew well chosen senlelices moved a hearty vote ol thanks Inllie Mayor lor his efficiency and
uniform efficiency in presiding
during the year. The motion
was seciiltded by AM. Wheeler,
supported by Aid. Crickuiai,
and passed unanimously. Minor Kealv thanked the council
for Iheir lltmigliUtil consider,1
II. R. Hellell, local manager
ol the Bank of B.N.A . is in
nceipt ol advices, to the ellect
that counterfeit hills have been
uttered at certain places. One
is a Bank of Toronto Ive dollat
note, which has been raised In
a ten, by cutting oul where the
"5" appears and inserting a
similar corner cut from a ten
dollar note. The Bank of Toronto has therefore issued advices that it will nol redeem at
llieir face value notes from
which the corner has been removed. The other is a straight
counterfeit ol iln- Bank of Montreal live dollar note. In this
the photos are poor, the paper
is pour, lite engraving ami the
coloring are both feint. The
whole elicit is much lighter in
appearance than is lhe genuine;
the numbering is done in black,
whereas the official numbering
of that particular issue was
done in red. The picture ol
the bank is crude and defective
in lhe louulerfeit. While it is
perhaps improbable that litis
spurious money will bl circulated in the west, it is nevertheless
just as well lhat the facts
sliould be made public.
W. II Mav, ths newly elected
mayor of the city of North

Throughout his long public
career Mr. May has ul all limes

city and district. He brings to
the mayoralty a ripe experience
and very many personal qualities, which will go to make his
term in the chiel magistracy ol
the city one of pronounced success.
The ticket ol thc ratepayers'
association fared well at the

lected their candidate for mayor and five out of six aldermen.

salelv taken as an Indication of
the enviable reputation enjoyed
abroad by this cilv as to   her

This is certainly very grati-
Iving, lml the fact sliould   not
be lost sight of, that thereby
nre raised certain anticipations
upon the part of the convention
in coming to this citv which
expectation! it is highly important should not be disappointed. Certain standards are created in tlie way ol accuinmoda-

Viewed   from the standpoint
of commercial advantage, it is
clearly evident lhat the presence of the convention will afford a most excellent Opportunity for making known and for

That thc advantages ollt-red
by North Vancouver for the location of industrial concerns,
are presenting tlii-iiisclvcs forcibly to the minds of manufacturers, is evidenced by the number of new institutions which
have been preparing ol late for
active operations.
The Wallace Shipyards Company represents one of the oldest linns on the Inlet in this
line, Mr. Wallace having begun
business in Vancouver some
twenty years ago. Since iSytS
the business has been conducted on False Creek, at the Granville street bridge, but owing
to the expansion of the
business anil the congested surroundings, this location has
been outgrown and the company has now practically completed the installation of a
iarge marine railway in ihis
city, where they own over three
hundred feet ol choice waterfront. The large cradle, capable of handling the heaviest
coasters that frequent the Inlet,
will be launched next week, and
it is expected that the ways
will be in readiness for operation by the end of the month.
As soon as it can conveniently
bc done, the entire interests of
the company will be concentrated on this side of lhe Jttlet.
When running at tlieir full capacity these works will allord
Aiiployinent for sixty and at
times as high as loo men.
cabinet maker and decorator,
has completed a commodious |
building for factorv purposes,at
the corner of 3rd and Chesterfield. The requisite machinery
will bc installed for the manufacture of office and store fittings, mission furniture, etc.
Upholstering in all its branches
will also be done.
The Hurrard Woodworking
Company, of which Messrs. McDonald and Houlter are proprietors,have erected a commodious
factory of two storeys, on an
excellent waterfront location,
just east ol St. George's ave.
Ten pieces of up-to-date machinery are now on the ground
and will be installed at once.
The second storey will allord
ample bench room and will he
used Ior finishing work. The
company will lie prepared to
111,iniilailure all kinds of inside
linish, tables, kitchen requisites, etc.
The North Vancouver Lumber Company, since taking over
the mill propertv adjoining the
Wallace Shipyards on thc 1 .ist
have given the plant a thorough
overhauling and by adding new
parts and new machines have
placed it in lirst-class condition
The vard has been stocked 11 ilh
all kinds ol dimension lumber,
and under lhc efficient managership of .1. Warren Hell, the
business is in first-rale condition to take advantage of the
spring revival of trade.
The Hurrard Fish Curing &
Packing Company began business in this city during the
Point Grey herring fishing, early in lhe autumn of last year.
The proprietor, A. .1. Henderson, has had extended experience in the herring and
trawl lisherics ol Great Britain
and fort-sees a great future for
the lisherics of this province,
other than the salmon and halibut lishing. This new industry
gives every promise of a sue
cessful career, especially if the
people of the province will realise the value of lish as 11 food,
for the waters abound in all
kinds of edible lish. Mr. Henderson considers the Point Grey
herring equal, if not superior,to
any in Europe, but owing to
Iheir richness he finds it rather
iiiilu uli to cure them so as lo
remain in good condition for
distant markets. The marketing of local fish is attended
with diff.cutt.ee, on account of
the distances between centres of
population, The Hurrard Fish
(iompanv pays special attention
to salting the fish, as strongly
salted fish is unpalatable to
most people. Cleanliness is a
feature of handling the lish at
their factorv. Special prices
are paid tlieir lishermen to use
gill nets onlv, which catch onlv
the larger and better fish. A
visil lo Mr. Henderson's l.n-
lory during the busy season
will prove instructive to those
who are interested in fisheries.
J,   A,   S.  Nicholis,  artistic
Mayor Kealy, Alderman Irwin and Councillor McNaught,
returned on Saturday Irom attendance at the annual convention of the union of municipalities, held at Vernon last week.
The matter of a uniform system of municipal accounting,favored bv the cilv council, received favorable action. The
matter of remedial legislation,
with regard to the qualifications of a householder under ut.
municipal clauses act, was relerred to the executive lo confer with the government.   The
North Vancouver delegation re-
leived compliments on the success which attended every matter whose interests they espoused at the convention.
Mayor Kealy was re-elected a
member of the executive committee, receiving the unanimous
vote ol the convention, being
the only member thereof to
whom this latter honor fell.
A special committee was appointed, to proceed to Victoria
to interview the government
with reference to all outstanding matters in the minutes of
the convention. This committee comprises Mayors Keary,
New Westminster; Kealy,Nortli
Vancouver; Planta, Naiiaitno;
Robinson,Kamloops; and Kccic
Hose ol Surrey (secretary of the
union.) Thc interview will pro-
'lably take place- next week.
The next annual convention
will be held in Nortli Vaiicoti-
>er,probably in November next
The honor was captured livlhis
city without the formality ol a
liailot, all competitors graci-
uisly retiring in •favor ol the
imliitiiiii.s city, thus making the
choke unanimous.
