VOLUME III.
NORTH VANCOUVER, B. C, FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 1. 1907.
NUMBER 24
I
Notwithstanding the inclement
weather there was a large turn out
at Larson's Pavilion on Wednesday night, and tint proceedings
were very harmonious and enthusiastic, Ex Councillor E, Dell
occupied the chair and introduced
the speaker of the evening.
Hon. Capt. R. G. Tatlow, on
rising was loudly applauded, lie
congratulated the residents on the
progress the municipality had
made dining the past few years.
It was over 21 years since he lirst
came here. He appeared belore
them that evening in a double
capacity—as a representative for
Hon. Mr. Cotton, and as a member
ol the local government. Speaking for Mr. Cotton, he said that
Complaint had been made that the
member for Richmond had not
heen very much in evidence in his
district. He (Cotton) was also a
member of the government, and in
that capacity did a great deal ol
hard work for the province in
general, and for his own riding in
particular, which in a measure liad
not been in evidence. Whenever
any question or matter arose in
Richmond be had always given
them the. strictest attention, lt
was in 1903 when tlui present administration came inn power. At
that time the proviifcial treasury
was in a very low jlud depleted
condition, and the state of the
country not what it should have
been. Today, the reputation of
the province was, lie was proud to
say, in a lAttir condition. Good
limes have been accentuated,
Previous to 1903 the government
spent $750,000 a year more than
its revenue. Money was being
raised by way of loans to meet
their overdrafts, and a policy of
robbing Peter to pay Paul was
pursued. A loan of S3,500,000
Was Boated at i>6 cents on the
dollar. The proceeds were used
for the Fraser river bridge and
interest 011 previous loans. There
was only S31,000 in the treasury
when the government took ollice.
The trust funds amounting to
about £250,000 were all gone, and
the province was fi,000,000 in
debt. The government called a
meeting of all the bank managers
and wauled theni to raise $550,000,
but could not get the money.
Finally the Canada Life and other
insurance companies loaned the
government £1,000,000 at five per
cent,, on condition that $100,000
be paid back annually. In order
to do this we had to reduce
expenses and raise the taxes as a
last resort. These payments hive
all been met. and there was money
enough in the treasury loi tl
third instalment which lulls due
in March. The government have
been accused of keeping money in
the bank lying idle, which was not
a lact. lt was true thnt enough
was always kept there to meet all
checks issued, some ol which were
nol presented for payment for six
weeks or more after they w, rr
issued. A contract was made with
tbc bank to receive three per cent,
on the government funds, and
$24,500 was collected therefore
last year. The credit of the
province was now second to none
of any in the dominion, The surplus last year was some $200,000
over expenditure. The personal
property tax and the real property
tax had been accordingly reduced.
The taxes on the corporations had
been raised out of all proportion
to the taxes paid by theindividiials.
The accusation had been made
that the present was a C.  P,   l(.
government. To prove that it was
not, it was instanced that this railway corporation on its line from
the Rocky mountains to the Coast
bad formerly been paying but
$12,125 a year. Last year, however, it paid $66,500.   (Applause.)
Does that look as if we wero a
C. P, R. government ?" asked the
minister of finance. Not one
dollar or one cent, either in passes
or votes or election funds,
had been received by the government members. The honorable gentleman then went into details regarding the land grants of
the B. C. Southern and Columbia
& Western land grants, and chal-
nged the opposition to point out
where these transactions had been
irregular. (Applause.) These
tracts of land had been given
away by previous governments
and were exempted from taxation
till 1908, and "you may be sure
that tliey will then be taxed," he
said. No corporation had any
strings on his government, and nobody had been promised anything
in the way of deals for support.
The Kaien Island transaction was
gone into. The criticism of tlie
opposition was not fair. The
Grand Trunk Pacific wanted to be
xempted from taxation for thirty
years and 15,000 acres per mile to
build to the coast immediately,
The government would not consider tli is outrageous proposition.
Later an agreement was entered
into whereby a block of 10,000
acres lor terminals was sold to the
G. T. P. by the government, the
waterfront of which was measured
oll in strips of 1,000 feet,the govern
ment retaining every fourth strip,
a!»o o,",e lot in four was reserved.
Had the government made similar
reserves when the land for Vancouver City was first granted the
provincial government would be
free of debt to-day. (Applause.)
The government was in accord
with tlie principle of controlling
public utilities. In this regard it
intended to control the bridge over
the Fraser river at New Westminster, which had cost over
$1,100,(100, without any assistance
at all from the federal government.
This bridge was open to all railroads and vehicular traffic. (Applause. ) Hon. Mr. Tatlow then
cleared the charges made against
Hon. Mr. Green regarding the
$37,000 worth ol shares alleged he
received (rum Sir Adolphe
Caron and others, which was satis-
lactory to thu audience. The
lumber industry was also referred
to, and it was through the legislation of his government that there
were now 126 sawmills in operation in the province, In 1904 the
amount ol lumber cut was \15
000,000 feet, in 1905 it was 500,-
000,000 feet, and in 1906 it was
iii(i,i)o(i,ooo. And for the protec
lection ol loggers government log
scalers were appointed, llorti
cultural interests were also looked
alter, with the result thai thousands
ol dollars of bad stock had been
destroyed. There were now nine
nurseries in lhe provic ,e. There
were 750,000 trees bearing! mil,
and in a year and a ball
there would be 1,500,000 trees
Last year 1,215,000 trees passed
through inspection at Vancouver;
in 1905 there were 22,000. In
1906, 40,000 acres of fruit trees
were planted out. The speaker
attributed these results to the persistent exhibits of fruit at tlie exhibitions in the Northwest and
also in the old country. British
Columbia was now a household
word throughout the British Y.m-
pire as a fruit-growing country.
(Applause,) Referring to railway
construction, thc speaker said:
" We have never given a dollar to
aid railway construction, but 1
don't want it supposed that we
will not assist a railway New
conditions were arising in the province, and the op.ning up of the
northern portion of British Columbia for settlement must be undertaken. At present the settled
zone of the province was paying
all the taxes, and it was necessary
to bring down the trade from the
north. While to-day the government had no outlined railway
policy, it was quite prepared to
consider any fair proposition to
give assistance to a bona fide railway. (Applause.) After reviewing the question of better terms,
he closed his] able address by
asking the electors to support the
Hon. Ciuter-Cotton. (Loud applause. )
Chairman Hell then offered' the
platform to the opposition to reply
to Hon. Mr. Tatlow, but it was
not accepted.
C. N. Haney then spoke at
length, and received a fine reception. He reviewed the Kaien
Island transaction, defended the
school act, and better terms. The
fisheries question was also taken
up. In closing, he predicted that
the results of tlie election would
be as follows: The opposition
would get fourteen seats, the government 24, the socialists, with
two doubtful, which if went against
them would add one each to the
strength of the liberals and conservatives,   (Applause.)
R. H. Bryce then made a very
neat speech, in which be said that
this was no time for party lines to
be drawn. What, was wanted was
stable government, The liberals,
iu discussing the platform ol the
McBride government, did not
honestly criticise it. The liberals
had no platform, and, therefore, it
was the duty of everyone to support the Hon. Mr. Cotton. To
change the government at this
time would take twelve months for
it to settle down to business.
" Why do tbe opposition slander
Mr. Cotton ?" he asked. " 1 dely
anyone to point out a single instance where Mr. Cotton slandered
anyone. He was too much of a
gentleman todo so," he said. Mr.
Cotton was an able and hard-working public man, and was quite able
to look alter lhe interests ol this
riding, and a valuable man in tlie
house. It was the first time that
be (Bryce) ever cast a conservative
vote, but he was going to support
Mr. Cotton this time. (Applause.)
Mr. Cotton was one of the largest
employees of labor at Vancouver,
directly and indirectly, and held
the respect and esteem ol all his
employees, It was true that he
would not pat you on the back
and tell you what a good fellow
you were, or buy you whiskey and
kiss a black baby and say it was
the prettiest little tiling he ever
saw. (Laughter and applause.)
Ile was a man ol di eds not
words.   (Applause.)
Three rousing cheers were then
given for Cotton and the National
\nthcni sung.
The News-Adv'rliter says thai
lhe North Arm of Burrard Inlet is now the scene ol much
activity is borne out by many indications. A tew days ago it was
pointed out in these columns that
a local railway company had been
making exploratory surveys with
the view ol establishing wharves
Deep Cove, where the anchorage
is unsurpassed. That this branch
line will be one ol the first to be
built is the view ol those who understand conditions, as walerfroot-
age is now in great demand and is
difficult to secure at reasonable
prices on this side of the inlet.
The Grand Trunk Pacific, according to the contract with the Dominion government, must lie built
across British Columbia in four
years, and by that time there will
also be a line running north from
Vancouver to eonnsct, not only
with the G. T. P., but also the
Canadian Northern. To accomplish this in such a short time,
operations will have to be started
immediately and extensively. lt|
is not generally known that all the
islands in the North Arm of the
inlet are under reserve. The reason
lor creating this reserve cannot be
definitely ascertained. Prominent
men in railway circles state that
they are held by thc provincial
government in anticipation of the
C. R. building from the main line-
along the north side of the inlet to
good anchorage ground also on
the Nortli Arm. Confirmation ol
this could not be obtained yesterday. The growing need of Vancouver (or more waterfront for in
dtistrial purposes has become so
strongly apparent that it is not too
much to suppose that a line of
this railway will be extended on
the other side ol the inlet, especially wyen it is so easy of access. The reserve on the islands
was established by order-in-coun-
cil, passed on August 22nd of
last year, and since llien purchasers have endeavored to obtain
them. Two or three are located
near Deep Cove, and one authority
has gone so far as to say that they
may be utilized in the bridging of
tlie North Arm, so as to allow
travel along the whole north side
of the inlet.

To the Electors ot  Richmond

any works on notice of trouble between employer and labor, whose
finding would be conclusive and
dale back to the date of such notice,
making it a criminal offence to
cause a lockout or strike.
(3) The cstililishinent of national banks and insurance department.
(4) Enlarging tlie provisions of
the " Workman's Compensation
Act," with a view of giving to the
injured for loss of liml, or for
permanent injury a greater sum by
way of compensation.

government lands adjacent to
centres of population into "small
holdings" to be given to bona fide

grading ol all roads therein, in
order to relieve lhc municipalities
ol such excessive expenditure.
(6) Exemptions from taxation of
all improvements on lands paying
taxes to tlie government.

and a return to a free education
system under the people's control,
witli Iree text hooks to he primed

J. Kendall, in a neat speech,
proposed the United States of
America, coupling with it the
name of Col, Dudley.
I-I. C. Wright sang "The Red,

Corporation, for they showed theni
what could be done in a vast
wilderness, The kind leeling ex
pressed by Canadians towards the
United States were reciprocated
by that great nation. The Colonel
referred to several instances and
controversies between the Americans and English in history (rom

W. W. Montelius, in proposing
Trade and Commerce, coupled
with ii the names of Messrs.
llazlitt anal Uishoprick, and said
thai he enjoyed himself that evening, but would more so il he were
uol expected to make a speech.
One ol the most composed, cool
and deliberate men who attended
a banquet he knew of was Daniel
in the lions' den. Daniel knew
ivhen the feast was over that he
would not he required to make any
remarks, (Laughter.) He referred on this occasion to the good
feeling that existed between employer and employee. " Our president bad said, two years ago, that
lhe credit and success of the
Western Corporation should be
given to his assistants and his employees, forWithout their help the
Western'Corporation never could
have succeeded," said the speaker.
He often wished the same thing
prevailed with other bodies. " 1,
too, give credit to our employees,
the same as our president." (Applause.) Tlie speaker told ol a
story of the boy who pumped the
icllowsof a chinch organ, and the
organist, after tlie service was
over, remarked that the music was
good. The boy said, "Yes, wc
play good music." Tlie organist
replied : " My playing was good.'1
The lollowing Sunday the.organist
presided at the organ as usual,
and started to manipulate the
the keys, but there was no wind,
and of course no music. The organist peered behind the organ at
the boy, and said in a loud
whisper, " Pump, pump I" Tlie
boy replied: "Is it'we'?" The
organist replied : " It's 'we'."
(Applause.)
Wm. liutler sang " Lucky Jim."
and lor au encore " Wasn't He a
Very Great old Friend."
W. II.   llazlitt said he saw a
big  change   since   he   came   to
British Columbia in its trade and
commerce,     After     being     appropriately reminiscent in bis remarks, he stated that the spruce
timber of this country would make
tier pulp than the Norway pine.
He was raised in that trade, and
spoke as   one   who   knew.    He
agreed with Mr. Bryce that good
honest administration was necessary, as there would be more concessions with  railways  lhan ever
before.    Mr. liuntzeii, in dealing
with his men,  had pursued   the
policy of the company lirst, but
(lie employees not last. He cotupli
inenled the Western  Corporation
for watching over the welfare ol
tlieir   employees.    A    successful
concern must depend   upon   its
employees.    The head may be all
right, but it must need help.   The
boats going out ol this port were
as large lis those  of the  Atlantic.
The C. P. R. had  live  plying  I.e.
linen   li, re   and   China.    "The
Great Northern Railway Company
was getting 11 larger share ol our
business because we need  more
boats lor lhe trade of Canada witli
ih- Orient, and the C. 1'. li.   must
improve and enlarge  ils serine,"
he said.    (Applause.)   Inclosing,
he referred  to the fad that the
Western Corporation had done big
things (or North Vancouver.    He

Stanley Bishoprick made a few
well-chosen remarks, He said
that when be was last in Nortli
Vancouver ten years ago on his
way to the Yukon it was a foresl
and a very dull place. Hut now
he was proud to say that it was a

lie bus secured for it appropriations three times a
large as had previously heen granted, $3(1,0(10.
lie is a member of the Government and can do more
than would he possible for an outsider, much less an

lie is pledged to do his best to carry out for North
Vancouver two matters of great importance;
Ono is to give the civil municipality, about to be incorporated the right to tax railways within its boundaries.
The other is to assure (be certainty of the municipality being able to collect the taxes on the lands sold by
the Government recently, but for which the title is still in
tho crown.
lie has recently obtained for the municipality a
grant of $5,000 as a compensation for tbo taxes it bad lost
through failure of purchasers to complete tlieir agreement
with the government.
He has stood up for the rights of the rural municipalities against the exorbitant attempt of the City of
Vancouver to get control of the water in Seymour Creek,
ami has taken steps to preserve tbe watershed for North

Neill. This was a most important
question for North Vancouver, for
it was an Island. (Applause.) "If
you tried to get to Vancouver hy
land I would like to sec you when
you got there," he coiiitiniicd,
amidst laughter, Then, how to
get here was also important. It
should be easier to get here. As
it is now nobody comes to see you
except those who really want to.
(Laughter.) " I hope not all of
them, though." (Continued laugh
ter.) "We must get people to
come here—-"
A Voice—And make it hard lor
them to get away.
Rev. Mr. Marsden said that
while it was a good thing to get
people to come here, yet it should
be easy lor them to do so and just
as easy for them to get away, and
also to get about the place. All
had plenty of work to do. Then
why should they have to walk,
when Ihey could get others to
carry them. Four years, the next
day, he first set foot in Nortli
Vancouver, and thc places where
he used to go tram cars would be
running within two week's time.
The Western Corporation and its
employees learnt the way to work
together, and to respect each
other. That was Church work.
Bring the crowd together. "Our
work is your work," said the
speaker. The Western Corporation set before its employees a
ligb aim, and he would, therefore,
like to see more institutions like it.
Applause.)
K. J. M. Webbesang "No Use
ol Asking, Hecause You Know the
Reason Why."
H. G. (Juin said he was a young
man connected with a rather young
company. The sentiments expressed by Mr. Marsden he concurred in. The ferry St. George,
however, was not a saint—(applause)—and it takes the wind to
make her go. The company re-
gretted the recent turning down of
the ferry by-law by the people.
It made a great deal of difference
in the popularizing of the ferry
ferry service and Nortli Vancou-
Ver, The* people did not apparently realise what a good boat
the St, George was.    The ferries
at Detroit, with which he was
formerly connected, only carried
two teams uoeh, wlii!-} the St.
George could carry twelve teams.
(Applause,) The great amount ol
freight handled testified in no small
way to the growing up of Nortli
Vancouver. 'Mr. ,Quin predicted
that in tlic near inline a half-
hourly service would again be put
on. (Apulause.) If the people
tried to do the right thing with the
ferry company it would do all in
its power to do the same with
them.   (Applause.)
W. H. liunbury said that he
was " jolly glad " that he came to
the banquet. He regretted the
unavoidable absence of Mr. Sperling and Mr. Milne. "Without
transportation facilities we would
go back to the dark ages," he said.
A good deal has been said about
bonuses. Hut it must be borne in
mind that large amounts ol capital
must be expended before any great
public work can be carried out.
The C. P. R. practically made
Canada what it is to-day. The
]i, C. Electric Railway Company
has also done its share to build up
Vancouver and British Columbia.
No company can expect to succeed
without spending large sums ol
money before returns are received.
" Wc have lhe lirst honor to
recognize the great capabilities
ol Nortli Vancouver," said Mr.
Bunbiiry, and "we hope to extend
a line to Grouse Mouutain and the
Capilano. We arc going to run
freight cars shortly," he went on,
" and we will have in North Vancouver as fine, il not a better service than at Vancouver." (Applause.)
William McNeill was well received. Alter a few jocular preliminaries he said that Canada had
outgrown its railroad system.
There was a great scarcity of cars
for hauling facilities, and more
railways were needed. Thc V.,
W. & Y. railway during the past
two years had spent a great deal <jf
time and money, and had extended
its survey 60 miles north of the
Squamish.   A period of competi-

tive railway construction has been
reached.   The era ol destructiv
competition has passed, when,  in
order to protect themselves,  the
railway companies organized, and
hence, monopoly was the result.
In future railways would compete
to open up the country,  and thus
become great immigration (actors.
In a few years this vast wilderness
to the north would blossom as a
rose.   His company would expen'
between $15,000,000 and $20,000,-
000—and that amount of money is
not picked up every   day.    His
work was wholly with construction.    Premier McBride had referred to his president as tlie great
captain    of   Canadian   industry.
Difficulties  were  created  to   be
overcome, and in a short time the
V., W. & Y. would be running its
rails along the waterfront.   Then
the electric lights would be   as
thick on this side of the inlet as on
tbo    other.     (Applause.)    The
great body  politic  wanted  railroads, and it wanted them quick.
(Hear, hear.)   Hon.   Mr.  Cotton
ought to facilitate the opening up
ot this country.   The V., W. & Y.
railroad would run   through  the
Cariboo,   Atlin,   and  on   to  the
Yukon.   When that task was completed the people ol North Vancouver would be as near to these
places as tbey are now lo Ross-
land and Revelstoke.    (Applause.)
"We can now run   through   to
Edmonton,  via Fort St.  George
and Fort MeLeod,  and connect
with the Grand Trunk Pacific,"
said the speaker.    Regarding the
proposed bridge across the Second
a railway bridge. " If Vancouver
and North Vancouver wish for a
traffic bridge, our plans can be
altered, either to widen it or make
it a double-decker as they have it
at New Westminster," said the
speaker, amidst applause. If this
were done, all parties would be
accommodated. "When the next
annual banquet of the Western
Corporation is held the bridge will
be well on its way—it cannot be
completed by that time—bill the
substructure will be well under
way." he said.   (Applause.)
A. li. Diplock proposed Capital
and Labor.   This was a pet proposition of his, he said,    " You have
associations for capital,  and you
have unions for labor.   But you
have not a union of capital and
labor.   Why can't we have such
an organization ?   Say three capitalists and three union men get
together  and   form   some   such
association—say a tribunal—or call
it what you like—to discuss and
settle disputes that may arise from
time to time between capital and
labor."   It's quite possible,  contended Mr.  Diplock, amidst ap
platise,  that such a body  could
accomplish a great deal of good
He hoped everyone would do a
little to encourage the union ol
capital   and   labor.   He    asked
Councillor Irwin and Mr. Kirkland
to respond  to this  toast.   (Applause. )
H. C. Wright sang " Romany
Lass," and lor an encore " For
We All Love Jack."
Councillor Irwin spoke briefly.
He complimented the B. C.
Electric Railway Company, the
Western Corporation and the
V., W. & Y. Railway Company,
(or what they were doing to build
up lh*l Ambitious City. Capital
and labor were the great pillars to
narrows, Mr. McNeill stated that
in December last he returned from j build a great city, such as he hoped
Ottawa with an order-in-council in North Vancouver will be. (Aphis pocket approving the plans for plause.)
J. Kirkland was pleased to say
that he was present as  an em»
ployee of the Western Corporation.   The company had  always
took a great interest in its employees,   and the officials always
recognized their men whether they
had on their best clothes or tlieir
bush clothes.     (Applause.)    All
agreed that many large corporations, as well as workmen, were
blinded  to their future interests
and would not work together as
master and man more in unison
than Ihey do.    (Applause.)   He
held out lor a fair wage for a fair
day's work, and was glad to say
that the Western Corporation held
out (or a (air day's work lor a lair
wage.   He hoped that thc ollicials
would live long, and in their old
age could look back with pride
to their work.   (Applause.)
Col. Dudley proposed North
Vancouver. He said when he
first came here there was nothing
but the Indian village. Mr.
Hamersley had done a great deal
in the' early days to shape the
destinies of this municipality.
The speaker said that when he
was at Seattle, not so very long
ago, he was accused of " pulling "
and "blowing the horn of British
Columbia" too much. He had
told the Merchants' Exchange
there that he would trust "you
Yankees" to get their share ol
the rake off of the enormous business that would surely be done as
soon as railroad communication
was opened with the north. The
names of Town Treasurer Woods,
Dr. Pierson and Municipal Engineer Balmain were coupled with
this toast.
Mr. Woods was sorry that Reeve
Kealy was absent, owing to illness.
He spoke briefly, complimenting
Western Corporation  for its
ler from Mr. Hope, which will appear in our next issue. (Applause.)
Dr. Pierson said he would look
alter the health of the community.
He expressed his hearty appreciation for the elaborate entertainment,    (Applause.)
Mr. Balmain spoke interestingly
of the future of North Vancouver
referring to the growth of Birkenhead and Liverpool as he knew it,
having lived there over 40 year8
ago.    (Applause.)
The toasts ol the "Press," "Our
Guests," and " The Ladies," were
disposed of, Harry Dick replying
to the latter.
A vote of thanks to the chairman and the singing of " Auld
Lang Syne" brought this very successful [unction to a close long
after the bewitching hour of midnight. The (erry St. George kindly
wailed lor those who went across
the inlet at so late an hour.

needed in the community was cooperation.    He read a lengthy let-

get a casket and ship it as a body.
The idea struck him and he purchased the casket. At the depot
an Irishman approached liim, and
said: "Your father dead?"
'No," replied the man. "Your
mother?" "Sister?" Still the
man answered, "No." When the
casket was being lilted on the train
the Irishman followed and said to
bystanders: " I don't know who's

he's in no trance."
