At the regular session of thc
city council, Monday evening,
tlhe Ottawa delegation submitted a supplemental report, with
reference to the letter received
hy the city council from Geo.
H. Cowan, M.P., relative to tin-
work of the delegation at the
capital, which letter was referred to the delegation by the
council. Before reading tint-
manuscript, .1. Balfour Ker explained that Aid. McNeish was
not in quite the same position
as the other two members oi
the delegation with reference to
the letter of Mr. Cowan, inasmuch as Mr. McNeish explained
to the delegation previous tc
the preparing of the supplementary report that Mr. Cowan had
expressed to him his conviction
that, as legislative representative for this constituency, he
ought to write a letter ol explanation to the city council,
and that the letter had been
read to him (Aid. McNeish) after it was written. In a sense,
therefore, the supplementary report is the deliverance of two-
thirds of the delegation.
Mr.   Cowan's  letter  was   as
Thomas Shepherd, Esq.,
City Clerk,
North   Vancouver,   B. C.
Dear Sir,—The dav before yesterday, the delegation, composed  of  Messrs.   Ker,   McNeisl-
Dick and McNaught, had a long
conference with Wm.   McNeill,
representing the railway   company, in the presence of Ralph
■smith  and  myself.     Mr.   McNeill was  frank   in   admitting
that the land values should lie
those of the date ol the charter
extension,and that his compan
sliould build ten miles   within
two years, connecting  the  two
cities.      In   reference   to   the
bridge, we had not, when I left
the conference, reached an agreement.    My position was that
the construction of the bridge
should be such as would support
thc structure  to be used,   not
only for railway, but also   (or
tram, vehicular and  pedestrian
trallic,   and   that   these   three
matters,   viz:  thc land  values,
the construction of ten miles,
and the character ol the bri,,.i
should be incorporated into an
agreement between the railway
company and North Vancouver,
and that this agreement  should
be  incorporated  into  and   become part ol and a condition of
the  extension  act,   which   the
company is now a-pplving   for. ____________
Mr. McNeill did not, when 1 left val.ues' th.e construction
thc conferenco, seem opposed to
this.    At noon, however, I had
to leave, to attend a conference
between   the   government    and
thc Vancouver delegation.     On
my return I met the delegation,
who informed me that an agreement had been reached to insert
into  the  bill   now  belore   the
house, a clause in the words  ,,|
the enclosure.
Pursonally, I would have preferred if your delegation, bnort
reaching an agreement with  llu-
company, had lurther confcrris
wilh myself and with VOW so
licitor here, Mr. Bethuiic.     Mv
tactical point in insisting on an
agreement between the company
and North Vancouver, was   to
prevent any further extension in
the future without the consent
of North Vancouver.    However,
the bridge difficulty
made  it   difficult   to  get
Gentlemen,-Said delegation,
consisting of W. Ill N'cish, I). 0,
Dick and ,1. B, Ker, in the matter of the letter from George II
Cowan, M.P., to Thomas Shepherd, city clerk, North Vancouver, dated Ottawa, sth March,
1909, met at noon on the 2hth
inst., and the letter received by
J. B. Ker from the city clerk,
covering Mr. Cowan's letter was
read to the delegation. It was
a surprise to two-thirds of the
delegation, but Mr. -McNeish
very frankly stated at once that
Mr. Cowan had dictated this
letter in his presence while in
Ottawa, and that it had appeared to him to be a correct statement of matters. The undersigned Dick and Ker, however,
do not agree altogether with
this view of the matter. It is
endeavored to indicate correctly any of the differences ol
opinion in this report. Mr.Cowan's letter is taken seriatim by
First sentence. "The dav before yesterday the delegation,
composed of Messrs. Ker, McNeish, Dick and McNaught, had
a long conference with William
McNeill, representing the tai
way company, in the preecnci oi
Ralph Smith and myself"
In reference to this, Mr. Mi-
Naught was not, % as you are
aware, of the delegation, llnil
came along with it to the conference with Messrs. Rtilph
Smith and W. McNeill. This
conference with Ralph Smith
took place by request ol the
minister ol railways, antl as regards Mr. McNeill's presence
that wa.s arranged by special
desire of Ralph Smith, who was
in charge ol the bill.
Second sentence. "Mr. Mi
Neill was frank in admitting
that thc land values should be
those of the date of the charu-i
extension, and that his company should build ten miles
within two years,connecting iln
two cities." Re this, the delegation told Mr. McNeill what
the city's resolutions were. Hi*
reply was that he thought them
very reasonable, and his words
ahout expropriation values wen
"There is a grievance ihere," or
"That is a grievance."
Fourth sentence. "Mv position was that the construe inn
ol thc bridge should be smli ni
would support the structure tu
bc used, not only for a railwai
but also for tram, vehicular ami
pedestrian traffic,and thai llu-si
three   matters, viz.,   the   land
--^-^--mm^  I   ten
miles, and the character ul tin
bridge, should be Incorporated
into an agreement between llu
railway company and Nurtli
Vancouver, and that this agreement should be Incorporated m
to and become part of and a
condition of the extension act
which the company is now applying for. Mr. McNeill did
not, when I lefl the conference
seem opposed to this." In reporting on the litter part of
this letter we ask miititil t,
note that wc do so in nu othei
j spirit and with no other vieu
than that Mr. Cowan is a na
tleman of trained mind, talent
and integrity, and when we differ from him, all diflwenm an
stated in accordance with   this
attend to a Vancouver matter
in connection with mother department of government.
Mr. Cowan's first contention
was that the bridge shuulil lie a
joint trallic and railroad bridge.
That such bridge should be built
Ker staled, wa.s lhe desire oi all
concerned, but alsu that iln- de-
mud made upon the minister
ul railways try the cilv, th.it .1
guarantee uf the itatine ul ,1
penalty, should be attached to
the railway company, if it foil'
ed to build ten miles in two
years, Including the bridge, was
not consistent with the lenglln
negotiations which would be necessary if lhe linances wete nun
to be searched lor in order to
get the joint bridge constructed,
Ker mentioned, however, that
Mr. Jeffrey, secretary of the V.
w. k Y. Ry. Co., had informed
him a year ago that the foundations of the bridge would be sufficient to carry a joint bridge
for railroad and traffic purposes
either by overhead or lateral
structure. Mr. McNeill then
said that), owing to thc North
Vancouver agitatioo, the detailed plans sent in to the dominion
government by the railway coinpanv had, or showed foundations sufficient to support   the
'Iiu city council held ,1 special
mix 1 iug last evening lor the

the afternoon had been one ol

so engrossed in the conference
thai it was easy lo lake ,1 partial report for a complete one,

and fatigue gem-rated by llu*

correctly, as could have been
done had the matter itood ova

Mr. McNeill did not, whin lu
left the conference, seem oppo

Cowan refers to being incorporated 111 an agreement and in tin

freight agent ot the C.P.R.,wns
in the city on Monday, in consultation with a committee ol
the board of trade, relative to
the possibility of arrangin-
with his company for the transfer of freight cars on barges a*
cross thc Inlet. Mr. KcNab
went carefully over the ground
and   likewise   considered   such
statistics as thc committee aru
prepared to submit, and tlu-
matter wa.s left in abcvaitce
pending the procuring of further
data. The chief dilliculty in
the way of the scheme appears
to be the fact that facilities
could not be provided at the
Lonsdale avenue wharf, and
consequently I suitable wharf
would have to be built on some
other site. Thc company is
favorably disposed toward the
project if details could bc arranged.
A special meeting of the executive committee of the board
of trade was held on Tuesday
evening. The letter irom the
Motor Boat Transportation Co.
referred to the board by the city
council, was given careful consideration and was finally referred to the meeting of ratepayers, to be called by the mayor for Wednesday evening, April
7th, for the further consideration of ferry matters. The publicity and information couiniittee was constituted as follows:
Geo. H. Morden, chairman; D.
G. Dick, A. Philip, A. S. Billings, T. A. Martin, A. G. Perry, Alex. Smith and J. K. J
Murray, with power to add to'
their number. The proposition
to pass a resolution favoring
the immediate construction bv
the V. W. & Y. Ry. of a railway bridge at Second Narrows,
with substructures sufficient for
the accommodation of a trallic
bridge, was considered, but no
recommendation was made.
A. Philip read the drait ol a
resolution favoring the appoin'
ment of a harbor commission
for the north shore of Burrard
Inlet, which he will move at
the general meeting of thi
board on Tuesday evening next.
per, of Mt. Pleasant. Several
papers and remarks relating to
the topic were contributed bt
different members. Refresh
ments were then served bv tin
hosts, and a variety programme
rendered by members of both
societies, brought a very enjoyable gathering to a closi-. Thost*
who took part were: Solo, Mi.-
Libble; recitation, Mr. Boull
and others from Mt. Pleasant;

A young man, hailing from
Vancouver, was arrested in the
district on Thursday last, for
shooting along the roadside on
Keith road west. He appeared
before Reeve McNaught on Saturday, charged with an infraction of the lircarms restriction
bylaw. In consideration of the
lact that this was the first arrest under thc bylaw, and that
thc accused pleaded ignorance
of thc statute, he was allowed
his liberty alter being warned.
Reeve McNaught stated that in
future thc bylaw will be rigidly
enforced, as promisuious Mooting constitutes a serious dangi.
to residents and lo tourists
who may be travelling throughout the district. He fuitlitt
stated lhat the council had .ippointed six Modal cimst.iiiii's,

lew days ago, came up for trial
before Judge Grant al Valiiouver, receiving his siiili-nie on
Tuesday. He was given three
years in the penitentiary at
hard labor. In sentencing the
prisoner the judge said: "I think
PII send you away to the penitentiary for three years. The
charge tw which you pleaded
guilty is a very serious one,anil
