One Month's Holiday
All llie members of the Council
were present at Monday nighl's
meeting. Considerable business
was transacted ol a routine natuie.
A court ol i s un ol the council was held tu unsi It r ifci p ti-
tion ior grading Eie.-jnlu sti*..!,
and tile special aseessmenl lor Ot
ttwa gardens.
Only one communication was on
the docket. C. Cook, ol Vancouver, wrote in connection with the
proposed (erry wharl there. •Aldermen Irwin and Smith and the
city engineer compose t committee
to take the matter tip with Mr.
The finance committee recommended adoption ol the decision
ol the police commistioners relative to the vacation of the rooms
upstaira in the oity hall by A.
Brimlcombe. The committee
further recommended that Mr.
Brimacombe be retained as caretaker, nre warden and pound-
keeper.  The report was accepted.
In the beard ol works report ap*
peared a letter from Jas. P. Fell,
with reference to the closing ol
McKay road by the city. The letter stated that this would work
hardship .on Mr. FeH't property
in D. L. JI1 The letter was relerred back to the board ol works.
The fire and light committee recommended that the chief be instructed to demolish the old bell
tower at the rear of the city hall,
and also that the caretaker of fire
hall No. t be required to attend all
the litrs with the brigade. Fire
Warden Brimacombe to remain in
the hall in the absence of the caretaker. He was appointed pound-
keeper at a salary of tbo per
month. He ii to vacate the rooms
in the city hall immediately.
D. G. Dick was appointed to act
ai the city arbitrator on the matter of the expropriation property
on St. Dai ids avenue, which wai
valued at fcjoo, but rejected by the
The principal ditcusiion of tht
evening arose over the application
of Thk Expiess lor a water connection on First itreet for the
water moter which has been used
by them since their advent in
town. The present connection il
a mn int li pipe, but thii pipe il
found to be too small to develop
the required power for the motor.
It was Ihe intention to replace the
pipe by a three-inch one in order
to give a greater volume of water
at the nozzle. The water committee did not deem it advisable to
grant the request, as at preient
there wai only a four-inch water*
num on First street, and it was
their opinion that such I connection would affect the preient tup-
ply on that itreet.
Aid. Irwin taked thc committee
to recomider its decision. He
stated that below Fifth itreet the
pretiure of witer ii too great
when all the pipci are cloied, and
that water wai going to waste
right along. " Hu the committee
ascertained the Maximum of water
which can be supplied bytheprei
ent pipes, the approximate amount
which ii being uied, and the iur
plui which ii going to wute ?"
asked Aid Irwin.
Aid. Smith stated that he did
not see how they were going to arrive at that.
The mayor stated that there wu
any amount of water going to
waite it the preient time, and
itated that he would like the en
gineer to slate what tha capacity
of the pipe is from the top of the
hill to the outlet,
The engineer replied thit the
capacity is 2,362 gallons, or roughly
100 gallons for 236 houses.
Further discussed, the feeling
was that a one-inch nozzle on tin-
pipe would not use too much
water, but engineer Loutet pointed
out that the amount of water tliey
would get through a one-inch
nozzle Irom a three-inch pipe
would be the full capacity of tlie
tluee inch pipe. The stream at
the nozzle might be smaller, but
the velocity would be much greater
Uid the same quantity of water
Thit information gave a totally
different aspect on the question—
10 much so that the council decided cot to grant the application,
and adopted unanimously the
committee's report.
just prior to closing the mayor
was granted a leave of absence for
one month by request, and Aid.
Irwin wis unanimously elected
mayor pro tern.

An illustration of the growing
importance of shipping on this
coast is noticed in a recent issue of
the San Francisco Commercial
Newt. In the lists of shipping
bound for the various coait ports,
with one exception, British Co-
lumbii ports are the only porti
showing an increase in tonmge
over last year. Portland it the
city which has a large increase, but
in their cast the growth is not so
regular and consistent as is that of
the British Columbia ports. The
record of tonnage to British Columbia ports this year at compared with the three previoui

All the members of the District
Municipal Council wen: present
at Fritlay nighl's meeting shortly
after opening up.
A communication was read from
W. S. Hugo, complaining of the
impassable condition of Queen
street, and stating that he had a
quantity of rock which the council
might use for making roads. The
letter was referred to the board of
woiks with power to act
J. P. Fell's plan of subdivision
of the west half of I >. L. 552 was
laid on the table, and asking the
council to approve of same. Mr.
Bridgeman appeared on behalf of
Mr. Fell, and explained the minor
details. He stated that the proposed road of the engineer's runs
close to the edge of a bench, and
if it were built the usual width
would be half in the air. The
road which Mr. Fell proposes
building as per the plans is 80
feet, north of the present surveyed
road, and will be 80 feet wide instead of 66 feet, with suitable
ditches on either side, and would
run from the city boundary to the
western boundary of 552. The
road would be as good as existing
one and Mr. Fell will clear an 80*
foot right-of-way the whole distance. Work will be started forthwith. The council, after considerable discussion,approved of the
plant, and agreed to give a quitclaim to Mr. Fell as soon as the
engineer had approved of the
work when completed.
Medical Health Officer Dr.
Campbell handed in his report
on the water and supply in Lynn
valley, as several residents had
complained of the pollution of the
water in the flume. The report
atated that the water in the flume
complained of was good, but that
the Rice lake flume was not fit lor
use. He advised that steps be
taken to provide good wrier or
protect the flume against Japanese
using same for sewerage purposes.

The clerk was instructed to ask
Mr. Fell to consent to join lhe
proposed water area for the passed
portion of his plan.
Two applications were made for
water on the Froinnie road.
In view ol thc proposed water
area coming into existence thc
council thought it advisable to
ascertain the water connections
that would be required for some
time to come, and have instructed
an advertisement! to be inserted
asking residents wanting water to
make application.

the clerk, when writing the government re the proposed bridge
across the Second narrows, stated
that the District Council wanted a
combined vehicular and railway
bridge, or none at all, Under the
heading ol enquiry, thc clerk read
a copy of the communication referred to, but failed to come across
thc objectionable paragraph.
Councillor McNaught thought
that a spur should be put on the
whip to get the bridge committee
in motion and make the bridge a
Councillor T. S. Nye registered
his objection to letting the contract for the new Lynn creek
bridge before passing a by-law to
borrow the money. The other
councillors did not view the contract in that light, and explained
to Mr. Nye tlie fat* that the money
market was not suited for such
purposes, and especially a sum so
small, and that the amount could
be taken from the general revenue
fund, and afterward a loan could
be put through for the putpose.
The clerk read the list of water
records, which have been obtained,
aa follows: Lynn creek, 274
inches; Mosquite creek, 50 inches;
an unnamed creek, 1 inches, and
three smaller creeks, 4 inches. On
thc Lynn creek the cost was
$55.75, and the others J15.75, at
an annual renal of $8. This gives
a total of 15,000 gallons per day.
District lot 615 has been included in the proposed water area.
The clerk stated that the necessary papers for the road machinery
by-law had been prepared and
ready to submit to the ratepayers.
It was decided to let this matter
stand over for some time.
