Under new business, Mayor
Kflflll brought up the matter ol
the bridge at the second narrows,
and submitted that the time is opportune for a strongeffort to secure
from the provincial government a
substantial subsidy for the purpose
of making the structure a traffic
bridge as well as a railway bridge.
Upon a previous occasion a deputation comprising representatives
of Vancouver city council, North
Vancouver city council and the
district councils ol Burnaby,South
Vancouvi r and North Vancouver,
together with representatives of
the Vancouver and the Nortli Vancouver boards of trade, had met a
full cabinet and had urged the
necessity of such a giant, but the
government had been pleased to
take no favorable action in Ihe
matter. He would now suggest
that a monster petition be prepared and forwarded to the government. The present election campaign afforded a splendid opportunity to procure a large number
of signatures, as doubtless the
political parties would take charge
of the petition forms at their
several committee rooms and canvass for signatures, thus ensuring
a laige representation ol voters
thioughtiiii Vancouver city, ind
Richmond riding. That this
petition be handed to the member
for this constituency, that he may
be able to realize what is the wish
of his constituents in this important matter. The recent 1e1n.uk
of President Hay of the G.T.P.,
that his line intends to come to
Vancouver and that they are not
losing sight of the valuable foreshore on the norlh side of the
Inlet was significant, aud added
another strong reason for lhe early
settlement of all matters pertaining
to the second narrows bridge.
James P. Fell in supporting the
remarks of Mayor Kealy, endorsed
the suggestions made, and called
attention to lhe (act that the situation in the case ol the second 11,11
rows bridge is different to that ol
(he Fraser river bridge. The latter
bridge was directly nnd-r provincial government control, but while
the Dominion government had
made a grant to the set nntl nar
rows bridge, they dul not propose
to exercise governmental control
in any form. Again (he Dominion
government had declined to grant
a sulisitlv lor the Fraser river
bridge, lor the reason that they
had not the power to grant subsidies lor public highways, but
only (or railway bridges. The
grant lor a rai'way bridge is already made in the present instance,
anil there is no reason why the
provincial government shall not
add to that a grant lor traffic
A.l' Antlers was ol opinion that
a deputation would prove no more
effective than a petition. This
had been found to be the case in
England and lie thought it would
obtain here.
Mr. J. G. Dick ri viewed his recent trips to the head of Seymour
creek and from the Lillooet trail
across to the head of Howe Sound
anil declared that the only altcrna*
tive route (or a railway was 75
miles longer than that via Howe
Sound, while the rock work and
engineering difficulties weie just
as gieat. Squamish is the logical
route for the coming railway.
He woulii like to see the Lillooet
trail opened up to the head nl Seymour, even if thc expense had to
lie borne locally, as there is a community ol several bun.Inti miners
in there whose natural source ol
supply is North Vancouver.
W. J Irwin was in line with
what had been sai.l with reference
to the bridge. He also thought it
might bc well to repeat thc request
for the opening up of the Lillooet
trail at the coming session of the
S. D. Schultz moved, J. G. Dick
seconded, and it was unanimously
carried, that Mayor Kealy, James
P. Fell and Thomas T. Nye be a
committee, with power to add to
their number, to prepare a petition
as suggested and to devise the best
means of securing signatures and
of forwarding the same.
Alexander Philip reviewed the
progress of affairs to the present
with respect to the Lillooet trail.
While the government had replied
thit there were uo ivailable funds
for that purpose at present, yet the
department had intimated its willingness to take the matter up again
at 1 later date and had leasonablc
hope that favorable action would
result. The district council is pre-
pired to do its share by extending
the road to the boundary line ol
the district whenever the government is ready to proceed with the
lt was moved by Mayor Kealy,
seconded by Alexander Philip, and
carried that 'he government be approached again at the coming session lor a grant for this purpose.
The matter of improved postal
facilities in the city was discussed
bnt no action was taken.
The meeting then adjourned.

Great embarrassment is ex
perienced in commercial circles in
North Vincouver because ol the
absence ol through shipping facilities (or freight to this point. All
goods purchased by local firms
Irom outside points are billed to
Vancouver, whence ihey must be
traissh p,ied to this city. I'pon
the arrival of the goods in Vancouver, they must remain ihere until
the mails convey notification lo
the consignee. Having received
notification, the local merchant
must absent himsell Irom his business, he must make a special trip
to Vancouver, release the goods,
procure a dray, lollow the goods
lo the (erry landing antl havt them
re-shipped to North Vancouver
This procedure is vexatious in the
extreme, lt involves delay, annoyance, extra cost ol thc goods laid
down, and loss ol time.
The ultimate result ol these conditions is, that our local merchants
are practically denied access to the
producer,in purchasing their goods
and are perforce committed to
middlemen lor llieir porchflflCfl.

that it is more advantageous, all
things considered, lor him to buy

Tlurc docs not appear to be any
valid reason why the transcontinental railway and other transportation companies should decline
to enter into an arrangema>nt with
the North Vancouver Ferry and

Carelessness in the use ol firearms, upon lhe part of those who
traverse the district ior hunting
purposes, is becoming so manifest
as to constitute a menace to the
safety, if i.ot lo the life of the
general public upon the common
highway. It was subject of coin-'
mint at the last meeting ol the
district council, that iu several
instances stray bullets have
whistled by, in dangerous proximity, to the persons ol travellers
on the roads throughout the municipality. From individual sunn 11
similar complaints are heard. This
is 1 matter to which too early attention cannot be given. It should
not be necessary to wait until a
bullet lodges in the body of some
pedestrian, in order to awaken the
public mind to the realmss ol the
danger. The district council has
already put forth a commendable
effort to saleguard the public in its
bylaw to regulate the use of fire
arms throughout the district, but

the presence ol the law on the
statute books is exerting any d
terrent influence upon transgressors. Residents in the Fraser

similar menace, but it is uudei*
stood that they ban sum tiled in
eradicating the practice, by means
ol individual property holders
posting trespass notices upon their
farms. Unfortunately, the prist im ol such large tracts ol wiltl
lands as are lound in North Vancouver district, renders a like
nnu ily unavailable.   Nevertheless
some sort of prohibitive legislation
might have the effect of instilling
becoming instincts of caution into
the minds of huntsmen. Sunday
appears to bt* the tlay on whit li
this danger assumes its greatest
proportions, for (he reason that
there are much larger numbers
strolling and driving upon the
roads and trails throughout the
district. The prohibition of hunting or ol carrying a loaded wuapon
for the purjioses of hunting or
shooting in the district on Sunday,
might prove a measure' whose significance would not be niisundei-
stootl ami whose (fleet would be to
relieve the public from a very
serious menace to life and limb.

One pipe had been tested to a
pressure of 160 pounds with satis**
factory results, whereas the heaviest

shooting accident in Capilano on
Sunday last. With a few companions he came over for a day's
hunting and took th Keilh road

party climbed the sl iti road leading
up the hill, turned aside before
reaching the top of the hill and
later made another turn toward
the creek. Here Mr. Hopwood
declared Ins intention ol having
S mu thing lo eat. Two logs crossing each other offered a convenient
resting place. Sitting upon the
upper log, he placed the butt of
his gnu on the lower log ami leaned
the gun against the upper log. B)
mine means the gun slipped and
i 1 sliding over the lower log the
hammer was raised. I he jar in
striking the ground evidently cans
ed the hammer to Iall, discharging
the gun, with the result that the
charge of buckshot entered Ml.

tins   Asiatic   immigration  was as
lollows:   In tStj5 the Conservative
government    refused   to   become
party to the Anglo-Japanese treatv

Japanese   immigration  as Canada
might desire.    In l8y6 the Liberal
party took oflice.     In October the
Japanese agreed toconcedeCanada
control of Japanese immigration
Sir   Wilfred   Laurier declined to
avail himsell of those powers and
the Japanese  began io pour in, in
thousands.    Repeated representations were made to the government

advised Laurier ol his readiness to
concede  the right ol the government   to   control   this influx, but
about this time the G.T. P. railway
scheme was devised as an election

Liberals were returned to power.
In   1005   thfl  government cabled
London asking lo be made a party
to the Japanese treaty.    The colonial secretary cabled back "What
