opening of the road through tin-

be a great deal of travel over the
new road, as this is the
only pleasure resort locality above
sea level near thecity, being 417 led
above the level ol the sea. The
doctor also stated that the land for
the road would cost the council
practically nothing, say a nominal
tee of 30 cents or %i. Referred to

The clerk stated that Messrs
Cameron & Stewart, contractois
(or clearing Victoria Park, could
not take up the work. Resolved
to remit them their deposit and
refer the matter of re letting the
contract to the Board ol Works.
The rcporrs of the Board ol
Works and Finance Committee
were of a routine nature, and were
accepted and filed.
The clerk read the following report of Councillor Morden re the
lumber contract and Mr. Wright's
"Noam Vancouvkk, B. C,
"Nov. 14, 1905.
"The Reeve and Council,  North
nicnts are right, why did he not
mention the fact?
"The Western Corporation had
exactly the same chance as the
Rat Portage Company, because the
Western Corporation had supplied
Contractor Blackburn with culls
that were perfectly satisfactory,
and they bought the culls from the
Rat Portage Company.
"The Western Corporation
claim had they gotten a fair chance
with other firms, they could have
met the price. Now, 72,800 feet,
less 21,000 feet, equals 51,800 feet,
at Su per thousand—the price
their quotation was estimated at—
would cost £369.80. Now, if they
could have met the price, they
would have to supply the 21,000
feet of culls for the difference between the price 1 paid, or $640-
.20 and (569.80, which would be
$70,40, or $3.35 per thousand.
"The 21,000 feet of culls were
taken from the same pile of lumber, and is the same quality of
lumber the Western Corporation
supplied to Contractor Blackburn,
for which they charged him, in the
neighborhood of It 1 per thousand;
and it looks to me as though Mr.
Wright was sore because he did
not make the same profit out of
the municipality as he did out of
Mr. Blackburn.
"While I am in this council, 1
intend to look after the tax-payers'
interests, and look after the
business of the municipality the
same as though it was my own,
whether it suits certain people or
not; and 1 am sure every member
of this council, and every taxpayer will uphold me in the stand
1 have taken.
"I am prepared to buy from Mr.
Wright 50,000 feel of culls, the
same quality as 1 bought from the
Rat l'ortage Company, and give
him ("d 71 per thousand, or double
the price he would have gotten,
had had he met the Rat Portage-
price, and give him a chance to get
even,    "Yours truly,
" VvM, Mokiikn."
Mrs. Ruth Kickhani, re replant

Resolved   That    the     council

"Genii* lueii, Iii reply ic
letter Irom Mr. Wright, ol thi
Western Corporation, dated Oil
31, 1 claim that the figures tin
council have in hand provi
that the said company were uukitu:
Councillor Bell —It does not
cover the whole bill of lumber?
Councillor Morden—Only the
lumber in dispute,
Ou motion of Councillors May
and Allen the council endorsed Mr.
Morden's action.
Mr. Morden to misquote facts, I
might mention that the cheque
paid to the Rat Portage Lumber
Company was for $945.76, perhaps
this is accounted for when the following letter is taken into consideration:
"Vancouver, B. C,
"Nov. 6, 1905.
"H, C.  Wright, Esq.,   Western
Corporation,   North Vancouver:
"Dkar Sir,—We are in receipt
of your favor of even date with reference to the lumber we supplied
the North Vancouver municipality.
In reply we beg to say that besides
the regular price we charged for
this material, they were to pay extra for cutting in short lengths,
and alo for towing of scow.

Our price included extra (or cutting in short lengths, which is ti
per thousand feet, also for towage

Thanking you in anticipation
for publishing this letter, I remain,

Henry C. Wright.
North Vancouver, B. C, Nov.
17, 1905.
Banquetted by His Friends and
Fellow-Townsmetvon the
Eve of His Visit to Merry
Editor Tut Exrasss:
Dear Sir,—As the North Vancouver council at Wednesday
night's meeting have adopted
Councillor Morden's report without giving me a chance to reply,
and as there arc always two sides
to every question, 1 am forced to
ask you for space in the columns
of your paper to refute said report.
Mr. Morden's figures and statements are absurd ou the face of
them. As our letter of October
31st distinctly stated that we were
quoting on merchantable lumber,
hence it is obvious that difference
of price cuts no figure when parties are tendering on different articles.
I absolutely deny Mr. Morden's
statement that 1 asked him if the
lumber supplied to Contractor
Blackburn was satisfactory, and,
in proving this, might state that,
believing I had bought all the
cheaper grade lumber at the Rat
Portage Lumber Company's yards,
1 then went to 1'.. H. Heaps Company's, ami ordered 20,0110 feet of
inibcr at a higher price in order
in lill Contractor Blackburn's contract.
The bill for the lumber Mr
Morden originally handed to Mr.
A. B. Diplock, who tells me that
a good profit  out   of   the   said! in reply to his query as to whether
municipality, 1 culls would be allowed, slated that
"Their quotation for 72,800 fcctl no culls wen- permissible
of lumber was IH00.80,  and the     Ergo the Western Corporation,
price I bought the 72,800 feet nl
lumber for waa *J66o.oo, less a discount of 3 per cent., making the
cost $640.30, roughly, $160 less
Mr. Wright's quotation.
"Ml. Wright never suggested to
me, that part of the lumber might
be cull; he did ask me if llie Inui
bet supplied by the Western Cor
poration to Contractor Blackburn
was satisfactory, aud I said it
was, Merchantable lumber was
never mentioned in any convir
limited, were not given the same
chance as the other tenderers.
What Mr. Morden's reason was
(or this is best known to himself.
Editor The Express:
Sir,—I have to thank you for
your very full report of my remarks
on the subject of Co-operation.
Your epitome of the main practical
suggestion may be misunderstood,
however, and 1 ask your kind indulgence to give it in another form,
as 1 do attach some importance to
the possibilities through its adoption: (1) 1 suggested that wc cooperate 111 the nursery business,
and hire an expert to grow the tree
plants we need, for every purpose
in view. (2) I called attention
to our cemetery reserve ol seventy
acres—a location in every way
suitable for cemetery purposes- -
and suggested that from 10 lo 20
acres be improved for future use
as a cemetery; but two acres ol ibis
would be ample burial ground for
several years, and the balance of
the improved ground could be
used for the nursery, and in some
form the co-operators could pay
rent for it. {}) That after one,
two or three years, the co-operators receive their plants for fruits,
shrubs, or shade treee, at cost;
and these will be in the best (orm
for use. In the near future from
$2,000 to $3,000 will be spent here
lor Iruit trees and plants alone
every year. (4) That part ot the
nursery be devoted to the growth
ol plants ol hardwood trees, to be
planted out in the district on
corporation property, or on government reserves, (or which payments would be received. (5) That
the first area planted out with hardwood trees of different sorts should
be the remainder of the cemetery
reserve, in order to beautify it, as
well as utilize it. (6) After 20
years these hardwoods would begin to yield substantial returns in
different ways, but il they are
planted where water sliould be
conserved, they will be ol great
value in that connection in five
years. By all means lot us cooperate for any present useful
purpose that can be devised, but
iln future also has claims upon us
particularly as we arc engaged
ai foundation work.

A very enjoyable evening was
spent on Thursday night, by ihe

Last Friday evening, Mr. A. St.
G. Hamersley was tendered a complimentary banquet, by his friends
and fellow-townsmen. It was
held in the Nortli Vancouver
Hotel, on tha eve of his departure
for the Old Country, where he and
his family will spend their Christmas holidays, returning in about
two months.
Among those present were:
Reeve Arnold B. Kealy, Councillors W. Morden, E. Bell and W.
H. May, Ex-Aid. John McDowell,
Alex. Philip (municipal clerk),
W. Godfrey (manager Bank B. N.

and Geo. Hartley.
Keeve Kealy was toast master.
He said they had gathered to do
honor lo llie guest of the evening.
He was going to England for a
time. All wished him an enjoyable visit and a safe return to the
coining grand city ol Nortli Vancouver. A few years ago, Mr.
lauiersley realized that this was
^oing to he a great town, and
helped to lay before the people the
vast possibilities of one of Ihe
most charming places on the Pacific Coast. The position he held
in Vancouver helped him to be
useful in that respect. The
speaker closed by saying that
North Vancouver was a land of
sunshine, aud jokingly added that
Vancouver was a land ol fog.
Mr. Godfrey was pleased to join
in the farewell supper, and echoed
the remarks of the chairman. It
was owing to the fact what Mr
Hamersley had done that prompted
the directors to open a bank here.
Keeve Kealy then read regrets
for the non-attendance of Aid
Gardiner-Johnson, Bit-Mayor Di
McGuigan, A. B. Diplock, Jas. F.
Garden, M. P. P., J. D. Scott and
Councillor Bell in a few well
chosen remarks thanked Mr,
Hamersley lor what he hail done
tu up-build North Vancouver.
Capt.  Cates said bis long   relationship with   Mr.   Hamersley
had been a happy one.

Mr. Sargent, J 1) Cornish, A.
M. Beattie, j 0, Pugh, Councilor Morden, Alex. Philip, all made
very interesting speeches, testifying to the high esteem iu which
Mr. Hamersley was held by the
On rising Mr. Hamersley was
given a hearty reception. He
mentioned that one or two things
said, went home to him. They
were said by men who had been
associated with him, and who remembered not a little of the work
he had done lor Vancouver, lie
did not have a voice in the direction of public alfairs then', but
only gave the best advice that he
could. Taken back to the early
days in Vancouver, he remembered
the same energy, the same belief
as shown then, displayed here
now The same spirit and enterprise that made Vancouver would
build Nortli Vancouver. Some
may say that this was too optimistic a view, The future of this
place was brighter than it had
been for Vancouver in 1889. His
dealings In Lonsdale had been
gratifying, for there was not one
solitary person who bought a lot
there ev.r repented for doing so.
Everyone who had invested a dollar there got two or three back for
so doing, This fact was the best
advertising agent North Vancouver
ever had. The social side of life
and sport were infinitely better
than stern officialdom to build
up a community. To build
Nortli Vancouver as she ought
to be money was nothing compared with good fellowship, manliness and the love ol sport. Were
all brought up in a manly way
they could play the game and
play it well. If we can in our
little community infuse manliness
of sport and square dealing wc
would be helping the empire as a
whole. This was one of the
greatest empire ports. North
Vancouver is bound to grow. Its
natural geographical position gave
it prestige, so only sit tight and be
content. In closing his very delightful address he referred in feeling terms to the sense of duty
shown by the every day plodder at
home and said, "Let us be loyal
to our empire and ourselves."
Chorus: " Will He N'ac Come

Who Gets the Most
Out of Life?
Not the wealthiest, not the most learned, nor the idler—bul the
man who has good health and works for ins living. This truth is
trite, but not trivial.
Every man should RU.-ird his health as his must valuable possession.   The more so because health is easier to retain than regain.
Keep your grip on health by regular exercise, reasonable care
in eating and requisite sleep. Take Ueechain's Pills occasionally,
to tone the stomach and keep the liver and bowels'in good working
order.  And don't worry.
Observe these simple rules and you will agree that the one who
gets the most from life is
