SI)? Ixprraa
The mass meeting held on Wednesday in the nuuiieipal hall to discuss the advisability of incorporating into a city was well attcndeit.
Reeve Kealy occupied the chair
and in a few well chosen words
stated the objects of the meeting.
Alexander Philip, municipal
clerk, then read the report of the
committee selected to prepare
data as follows:
, Report of the area and valuation
and financial prospects of part of
Nortli Vancouver, proposed to be
embraced in the city to be incorporated:
i. The area marked off on the
map for separation, including lots
27a and 273, extends to 8067 acres.
a. The total valuation of the
area marked off, so (ar as it is in
the municipality, according to last
year's assessment roll is $720,152
for land, and ft 01,065 for imrove
intuits, leaving iu the rural area a
total valuation of (402,583. It
may be assumed that the new
valuation will add at least 50 per
cent, to the city area, and give a total of, say, 11,274,202, and Moody
ville should give an addition ol
,1250,000 to bring the total assessed
value of the new city up to, say,
j. If the ,< 1 oo.noo loan is allocated, according 10 last year's as
sissmeiit, thu city would have to
Undertake (70,000, and the rural
district $30,000, approximately.
The city would alsu have the local
improvement loan, Jj.ooo; lb
water loan of $50,000, the last
sueet improvement loan of tiy-
000, and the street ends loan ol
(13,000—making a gross total
debt 011 the city of (160,000.
Tlie assets lo be considered and
allocated would be: (1) the ss.
North Vancouver, valued at (10,•
0011; (2) the municipal building,
valued at, say, (7,000; (3) the tax
lands, worth say, (3,500; (4) the
arrears of taxes, worth say, (10,-
010. and (5) the sinking funds, (2,-
300: total 32,800- -of which assets
the rural district would be entitled
according to the same distribution
as made of the debt—to (10,000,
and the city to (12,Son, and the
whole waterworks system.
The cost of incorporation ol the
city by a private act of parliment
will be, approximately, $1,000, if
there is no opposition. The
further expenses involved will be:
(ij for a commission to allocate
the debt and assets, say, (1,000;
(2)Q(or paying oil the present debt
and placing new loans, say, (20,-
000; but against this expense it
should he possible to place the
city's new loan at 4 per cent, interest, or at most iM per cent,
next year, when this class of
securities will be more in demand
and the margin of credit will be
much larger.
6. II the city can place a loan
of (200,000 al 4 per cent, the
annual levy on the city will only
be 6 mills on the dollar, as compared with 7 mills lor water loan
and 6 mills lor consolidated loan
at present.
Councillor Bell at length pointed
out the advantages that would be
derived from incorporating as a
city. The street railway, and an
electric lighting system were
already within sight, and in future
they might look for shipping and
wharves, This was destined to be
a great shipping port. The commission oil transportation agreed
to this. They wanted a compact
municipality, a city with a character, that could act quickly and
effectively to secure the advantages
which in the very near future
would be much required. At
l'i' nit in llie municipality they
hud some iH square miles 10 administrate, and it was not tu the
advantage of the townsite to be
joined to such large, unproductive
areas. He thought they should
take all these things into consideration, and not be interested
or deterred by the question as to
whether they should pay 90 cents
or a dollar more in taxes than they
did at present, "Let us take a
broader view," said Mr. Bell, "and
try to make this place what it
should he, what it will be. We
arc laying the foundations of a
great city here and no petty considerations should be allowed to
interfere with it." He closed by
suggesting that a committee
should be appointed to look into
the question and report at a mass
meeting to be held later.
H. C. Wright favored incorporation, and a smaller area than
that outlined on the map. Vancouver suffered in having too much
territory. He wanted all tlie
waterfront possible to get in the
new city.    (Applause.)
Mr. Wood said that the area of
Vancouver city was t'/ixsYi
miles, or 9,400,acres.
Mr. Bell—Was Vancouver contemplating a greater Vancouver?
Mr. Wright-The city extends
to Jerico now.
Mr. Bell—I suppose it will soon
extend itself to Jerusalem.
Mr. Hope said that the meeting
was pretty well of one opinion regarding incorporation. There was
no doubt as to the future of the
city. It would be a great deal
larger ger, but don't make the area
too large. Vancouver s uffcred
leverly for this in the past. For
instance Cedar Cottage, outside the
city limits, there were many cleared (anus, while on the city side
dense lorests prevailed. Taxation
was the cause of this. Mr. Hope
spoke for Ur. Carroll. This
property was all farming lands
aud would so remain for many
years, and suggested that it not be
taken into the corporation. What
would make North Vancouver was
the railway, consequently the
matter of incorporation might be
deferred for a year.
What are known as lots 272 and
273, the old townsite of Moodyville,
caused considerable discussion. It
seemed to be the opinion, although
the matter was not put to a vote,
that it would be a mistake to take
in Moodyville at the present time,
as the city would be then under
the necessity of making a very large
outlay there for streets, water-
mains, etc.
Reeve Kealy, who occupied the
chair, pointed out that they were
not there to lay down the lines on
which incorporation should be carried out, but rather to Iind out
whether the concensus ol opinion
was favorable to incorporation or
not. Witli this idea, he suggested
a motion. Acting on this suggestion, Mr. Dick submitted his motion,
which carried unanimously.
Mr. Cave, of Robert Ward & Co.,
who did dot vote, stated that he
was there to represent the Lonsdale
estate, and that his principals, while
not opposed to incorporation, were
of the opinion that the time was
not yet ripe.
Following resolution was moved
by R. H. Dick and seconded by J.
G. I'hillippo:
That a committee of 15 be
appointed, which committee shall
consist ol reeve, nuuiieipal council
and tun other members, to be
elected by popular vote at this
meeting; that the duties ol this
SOmmittee shall be to consider the
boundaries ol proposed city; that
their report be submitted (0 a mass
meeting of ibe ratepayers to be
called by the chairman of this
meeting before being submitted In
Importance of This Rapidly
Growing Town Is Fully
Realized by the Manager
of Vancouver Branch-
Facilitates Business for
North Vancouveritus.
Suitable apartments have been
secured in the new office building:
recently erected by the North Van
couver Improvement Company, at
the corner of Lonsdale avenue and
the Esplanade, for a branch of the
Bank of British North America,
which will be opened here in a
week or so.
This addition to the rapidly-
increasing business of the town
will be a boon to merchants and
citizens in general and much valuable time will be saved thereby, as
obviating the necessity of going
across the inlet to transact business.
Tlie stability ol North Vancouver
has been assured, and no greater
confidence can be placed in tlie
town than the opening up of so
important an enterprise. The bank
handles the account of tbe municipality and hopes to contribute its
share towards tbe upbuilding of
this new city. Tlie Haul; ol B. X,

Pacific Northwest, being the lirst

being one of llie mosl conservative

a safe place lor investments.

Unanimously carried.
In pursuance of the resolution, a
ballot was taken for tl.* committee
of ten, and the following selected 10
act in conjunction with the municipal council to inaugurate the crusade: B. J. Cornish, J. C. Keith, Ci.
Bartley, J. J. Woods, R. H. Dick,
J. G. Phillippo, A. B. Diplock, E,
W. Thompson, James McNair, C.

The committee will meet on
Monday night in the municipal hall.
Sister St. Dominick's Demise.
The death occured on Sunday at
St. Paul's Hospital, of Sister St.
Doniinick, a teacher iu tlie Indian
school at the Mission. Tlie deceased had lived on the Coast lor
a number of years and was widely
known. The funeral look place
from tin: Mission church on Tuesday morning aud was largely attended.
The pile-driver, owned by Capt.
Cates, and which was tied up at
his slip here, turned turtle in English bay ou Sunday afternoon while
in tow ol the tug Superior, enroute
from Britannia Beach to False
creek. The leads ol the diiver are
very long, which caused lllttcll
difficulty in towing the scow lo
Cate's ship yard, where, it is
thought, the that can be successfully righted without the loss of
any machinery, other than the tools
which were lying promiscuously
about the scow.
What would Emerson,   tli"   lull
ger, do, il there were no newspapers to give vent in his hot air?
There was a fair turnout at the
open meeting ol the Horticultural
Society, in the municipal hall, on
Monday night. As announced in
The Express, the subject under
discussion    was—"Co-operation.'
in a lew well chosen remarks, open
ed proceedings, and said that it was
the first of a course of winter
meetings. People were wanted
to take an interest in them and the
membership thereby doubled
North Vancouver would be a city
soon, and co-operation would he
needed. In the Uld Country it
was a great success—one co-oper
ative institution being now worth
/, }oo,ooo,ooo which grew Irom
practically nothing. The same
thing obtained in other parts ol the
world, though not on such a large
scale. The members and others
could start by buying fruit trees,
(applause.) After introducing the
speaker of the evening, Alex.
Pllllip, Esq., President Bell who
was called away, left the chair, and
Mr. Nye took his place (or the
evening. Mr. Philip, on rising got
a good reception,    lie was
as bis exhaustive remarks showed.
He left out of view entirely the cooperation of capital aud energy to
e found iu the limited companies
and railway and tramway corporations. He wanted lu be practical
and consider some of the local
possibilities of co-operation. An
admirable example ol the value ol
joint operation was the successful
exhibition recently held here. Un
the other hand, cooperation in
merchandise as a business had net
been a success, particularly in the
provision line and among arti/.ans.
The men in charge ol these businesses, who were giving up valuable
time to the work, could aol be coi.-
vinced that they were not public
benefactors, Yet articles as good
as they sold could be bought from
individual trades for the same
price. To maintain a store, in
spite of all the hard voluntary
work of the directors, there must
be a stall of hired employees, and
one ol the greatest bugbears has
been the
Merchants can always hold their
own with co-operators. The
peaker sometimes thought that
there was an opening for cooper
ation in farming. Vet what a
splendid sphere this vocation, is
for individual energy, ingenuity
md skill   Of course,   managers
do often make their marks as Well
as individual farmers, But olten
arms, yielding wood livelihoods to
individual larmeis, would nol pay
the salaries of managers, and yield
_ rofits, The co-operative system
in every Instance, must resolve it-
sell into work under individual
managers. And as a rule hind
managers have not the incentive
or economy which is the natural
possession ol every farmer in their
own accounts. These two lines
sufficiently illustrate some of the
clut'i difficulties in tlie way of cooperation, Where success is depended on individual enterprise
private concerns stand the best
chances to succeed. Some ol the
conditions for
USEI Ut. CO iii'HtllluN
arc: 11) Insurance  ami  banking;
(a)canneriesfor fruit growers, and
fish canneries for fishermen; (3)
ordering in bulk, seeds, plants,
manures, stumping powder, etc.;
(4) securing the services o( an expert, as in large works retaining a
doctor and maintaining a hospital.
The Horticultural Society cannot
as yet start in lile assurance or fire
insurance, though the princical is
good. Those who are 1 larmeis,
however, can join the Partners'
Mutual Insurance Company ol
Britisli Columbia. This compaay
is a young concern, and has over
Ji,ooo,ooo in risks. The cost so
far to the farmers has been from
40 to So cents per $100 a year.
Insurance is given at cost. In
Eastern Canada the rates have
been under *J2 per J 1.000, or 20
cents per $100. We cannot start
a bank yet, but one will be started
here before very long. However,
a building society could be started.
The time is not ripe for a co-operative creamery or fruit cannery.
Along the line of finding
however, for butter, milk and fruit,
wc can co-operate. A site for a
market should be early secured.
The speaker referred to the purchasing of clean seeds and how
concoctions have been palmed off
on farmers. Were they bought in
bulk, however, and not as represented by the nurserymen, Ihe
large consignments thrown back
on their bauds would be serious
losses to them. Powder (or blasting stumps could also be purchased
jointly. While not advocating the
ingageniaiit ol a doctor to attend
10 us all, nor yet the erection
of a hospital, yet great benefit
would accrue, and in many cases
lives might be saved, by the opening of a cottage hospital with a
lew rooms. We are in the days of
will be the most important industry
in this district; then dairying.
Within the next lew years a very
large number ol fruit trees, shade
trees, shrubs, etc., will be planted
out in this district. A million tree
plants arc imported annually into
this province. Are farmers and
others doing justice to themselves
in sending away as much money as
tbey do (or them, when by cooperating they could grow them at
home? Besides buyers would know
what they were getting, and freight
ami agents' commissions would he
saved. An expert could also be
retained lor the work, say 10 acres
cleared and seed acquired. This
needs a large outlay. There arc
70 acres available for cemetery
purposes. This ground, all hut
say ao acres, is suitable lor the
purpose of a nursery. The nurseryman could pay the rent by
looking aller the graveyard. Seeds
of different hardwoods could be
sown and the plants distributed,
The expert could conduct spraying
ami pruning operations and advise
in selecting plants.    From a

was the organization of a local
Board of Trade, to give attention
to the development of industries,
and to watch over the interests that
are of vital importance to a city
that hopes to become a centre of
commercial life.    (Applause.)
Pete Larson thought the growing ol hardwood might be a good
idea, but he did not feel like waiting 150 years for them to grow.
Reeve Kealy said that he considered co-operation ahead of its
time. Mr. Philip had said, the
two greatest industries of this district were, Iruit-growing and dairying. The speaker agreed with the
one ol fruit, but took exception to
dairying, excepting in the outlying
One thing lelt out was the matter
of small holdings. These would
be a big source of revenue to the
community. The possibilities ot
poultry-raising were enormous,
and North Vancouver offered every
inducement to this industry.
Fruit-growing and poultry-raising
go hand in hand on small holdings.
Some ol our people prefer to go to
Vancouver to buy their supplies
rather than get them at home.
North Vancouver was not an agricultural, but rather a horticultural
municipality. We should at
present confine ourselves to fruitgrowing.
B. J.Cornish said that some of
the subjects discussed were not
horticultural. The first steps taken
should he in buying. At present
the place was too sparsely settled
lor any other kind ol co-operation.
Chemicals and machines for spraying could Iw purchased jointly.
"It is a nice thing to have our own
orchards sprayed and to see those ol
our neighbors' done also," he said.
Among the others who took part
in the discussion were Rev. J. D.
Gillam, Geo. Bartley, F. W. Templar, J. D. Livingstone, Chairman
Nye, A. Gibson and others.
Alter Mr. Philip's reply, the proceedings ol a very profitable and
pleasant meeting terminated.
Murray's tea rooms presented a
busy scene on Tuesday afternoon,
the occasion being the marriage
of Mr. Murray's sister, Isabella
Darling, youngest daughter of
James Murray, J. P., late ol
Stewart Brae, Bcarsden, Scotland,

Regularity of Her Blood
A woman needs n liltmil medicine
regularly just lieinusi' she is n woman. From maturity to middle life Ihe
health nnd happiness of every woman depends upon her blood, iis richness nml iis regularity. If her blood
is poor nml watery, she is weak and
languid, pale and nervous. If her
blood is Irregular she Buffers untold
torture from headaches, backaches
and sidcnclies, nnd other unspeakable
distress which only women know.
Some women have grown lo expocl
this suffering it I regular Intervals,
nml bear ii in hopeless silence, Dill
they would escape tbo greater pari of
it if they took n Imx or two of Dr.
Williams' l'ink Pills each time lo
help them over tho crltlcnl period,
Hr. Williams' Pink Pills actually
make new blood, They help n wo-
inanjiisi when nature mnkosthe greatest demand upon her blood supply.
They have done this for thousands
of women throughout Canada—why.
shouldn't ihey tin thai much for you?
Mrs. .lames Cnndy, 25 Edith avenue,
Toronto, says: "I think Hr. Williams'
Pink Pills n medicine Ihal should be
taken regularly by every woman In
the land. I suffered greatly from
those ailments thai oniy n woman

Value nt Walking- and lll.lln-r.
A brisk dally walk nr a ride on horseback beats any more elaborate forms
of physical exercise fur simplicity combined with efficiency. In walking, especially if ihe ground is somewhat undulating, a very large number of muscles
are brought in'o natural and easy play,
sufficient, nt miy ruto, lo stimulate the
Circulation, which In Its turn compels
full expansion of the lungs and duo
aeration of the blood. The professional
or business men requires no mora than
this lo keep him lit for his duties, provided he follows the ordinary rules of
health In respect of bulbing, eating,
drinking nnd clothing, If ho Is afflicted wllh a sluggish liver, Indigestion or
Inactivity of the alimentary canal as o

to health on horseback. But that Is

Sunday last was an ideal summer day, and many Irom Vancouver availed themselves of the
opportunity to pass the afternoon
to the sunniest advantage. Consequently the ferryboat was well
tilled each trip, and remarks on
all sides were to the effect that
Nortli Vancouver was certainly
the place to come. The temperature was exceedingly mild, and
the sunshine softened the gentle
winds until one would think they
were in fairyland, The sportsmen
were more plentiful then the game,
and, as the day began to draw to
a close they could be seen wending their way to the boat, "some

Dear sir—In your issue of Nov.
3rd, 1 read with interest your report
of the doings ol the council. In
it you state thai an altercation
took place between Messrs. Wrighl
and Morden. Tu most readers ol
lour paper, it would seem a very
one-sided altercation, as Mr.
Wiighl was not allowed a proper
bearing. He made an accusation
against the chairman ol the hoard
ol works, which should have been
silted at once by the Council, as ;i
whole, aud not allowed to lay in
abeyance for two weeks, lor a re-
report to be brought Iniward by
Mr. Morden himself. As a ratepayer, I ilu'nt like to think there
is any crooked business goilli{ mi iu
our midst, but your report of
ie meeting a'.iove referred to
seems to indicate that the thin end
ol the wedge, in a system ol graft,
is being inserted, and, il nut
checked in its infancy, will probably
lead to the corruption that stains
the character ol so many public
It appears to me that a good
deal ol the ratepayers' money has
been squandered in a very loose
manner ol late, Take [or instance
the laying ol a twelve-foot side
walk up to Third street; also the
clearing of Third street to the lull
width, while Second street has
been lelt ns a wilderness. Also
the clearing ol Bewick avenue,
from Twelfth street to Fifteenth
street, in which avenue no resiliences exist.
The expenditure ol some $200 111
the lights that have been placed
on tbe main thoroughfare
may also be referred t» Wc old
residents, who have endured llie
