At the regular session of the city be required next yeir. Chesterfield
council, on Monday evening, there ivenue school ii overcrowded,
were present Aldermen May, Irwin,  notwithstanding the recent enlarge
Crickmay,   Wheeler  and   Smith;
Mayor Kealy occupied the chair.
The deputy postmaster general
wrote, with relerence to the request
ol the couucil for mail cirrier service, that under the regulations,
such service was obtainable only
by cities having a population of
twelve thousand and showing a
poital revenue ol $10,000 per year
or upwards. As North Vincouver
has a piipulation of only 3000 and
lhe total postal revenue does not
exceed (1181, the department cannot accede to the request. The
mayor leported with refeience to
postal boxes that the matter would
duubtlcss ^satisfactorily irunged.
Alderman Smith submitted 1 report from the joint committee, with
reference to assistance to the Horticultural Association. The resolution adopted by the committee is
is lollows: "Moved by A. E. Kelly,
teconded hy Councillor McNaught,
that tinst tiuiiiiitti e ret online ml the
Horticultural Association to transfer to the city corporation the south-
most three acres of their property,
(or the sum of J6000, subject to the
proviso that the ground would be
usetl by the city lor city park,
library or city hall purposes."
Alderman Wheeler would support
the proposition ol lubmitting the
project to the ratepayers, provided
thestrings were removed, but otherwise he would oppose it. Alder
mm Mty wii in sympathy with the
purpoie, but considered the time
ment, ind at least two additionil
teichers will be required. The
wird school system would probably be idopted, whereby the lower
grades would be conducted in
schools placed throughout Ihe city,
while more advanced grades would
attend at Chesterfield avenue. The
trustees would be glad to negotiate
for a portion of the grounds of the
horticultural association.
The mayor suggested that the
board of school trustee! formulate
a comprehenlive plan and submit
it to the ritepayers at the approaching election!.
A plin of lot 3, block 31, stib-
civision 549, previous!/ ipproved
but not registered, was again approved.
Accounts is lollowi were ordered

Minutes  of a  meeting  ol the
the improvement! on that street
were carried out. Amongst thoie
comprising the deputation were
noticed, A. W, Sirgent, D. W.
Elder, A. Gibson, T. J. Smith, T.
0. Mills, J. H. Selkirk, J. Alexander, J. Williimi, F. Tuck ind W.
H. Stoney.
A.W. Sargent stirted the ball
rolling by observing that the street
had palpably been laid out at
bench grade, but it had later been
discovered that thii was in violation of the council'i own resolution, passed sometime igo, to the
effect that gradei on north ind
south streets should be straight
grades, and an effort hid been
made to make the work conform
lo thii resolution, with the result
that it was neither the one nor the
other. He had examined streets
in all the leading citiei of the continent and never saw anything approaching this. The street would
stand if lelt in the present state, as
a monument to the incompetence
of the engineer and all connected
with it. The sidewalk between
Lonsdale and Chesterfield avenues

alleyway to si\ inches below Lons-

important nutters requiring mention for which beivy loam would

the ratepayers an opportunity to
record their votes (or or agiinit.
Mayor Kealv did not comider
$6000 1 very heivy loin, more
particularly ai a very valuible property would be thereby saved.
Aid. Smith stated that the board
of directori of the association were
willing to remove ill restrictions,
sive thit the property be used lor
public purposes. Aid. Irwin wis
ol opinion thit the matter wu ol
sufficient importance to justify iti
submission to the people, ind
Aluernun Crickmay wai of the
ume mind, if the property were to
be icqnired for public purposes.
In reply to 1 question by Aid.
Wheeler, the miyor stited tint the
board of directors would hive power to convey the property to the
city for public purposes, but if not
used for such purpoie it would revert to the city. A motion wii
pissed to the effect, thit the boird
of directors be notified thit if the
objectionable reitrictiom ire removed ind the stipulation mad*
that the property it to be used for
public purpose!, council will refer
the nutter to the people tt the
Jinuiry election!.
A. K. Steicy, chiirman ol the
ichool boird, addressed the council with relerence to Moodyville
ichool nutters, John Hendry
strenuoutly objecli to the ichool
tix of II700, which he is called
upon to pay as owner of the
Moodyville townsite. The actual
cosl of the school is only |66o per
annum, and of this the government pays $45 per month, so thit
there is 1 totil of $1240 per yeir
riiied, with which to piy $660
actual expenses. Mr. Hendry will
be under the necessity of charging ground rent it the rate of f 25
per month unlesi hii school tix ii

mayor could not tee how the rite
could be lowered in Mr. Hendry's
livor, because surrounding property piid the ume rite, ind any
special conceitiont to one would

endinger the entire issessment.

Aid. Smith read the proposed
petition to the provincial government, with relerence to the .y a
blishment of a land registry office
In the city. The memorial cites
lhe following points: 1. It is desirable iu the city's interests that
all such buiineu be transacted at
home. 1. The fees on business
now done for this city ind diitrict
amount to over f.800 per month,
and will steadily increase. 3 The
renuiv.'l of the Vancouver offices
to Georgia street will work a hardship upon residents of this side of
the Inlet, making matters even
more inconvenient than they are
now. 4. Facilities lor the regii-
tration of birthi, nurriiges and
deaths would prore a greit convenience and siring of time for
local ie .iili-nis s The opening
ol a registry office would lead to
the holding of county court and
small debts court on this side,
which is a very desirable development.
Aid. Irwin idded thit the registry office would sive to our citizen!

south side of the street at much
less cost. The contractors .were
not to blame but the board of

Third Street Protest
A stitmg deputation of 3rd street
property owneri waited on the city
council in apecia1 leuion,   I	
day evening, ind   entered   itrong
proteit against the manner in which
was an outrage that property owners should be expected to pay for
in h blunders upon the part ol any
in official position. When the
blunder with regard to the grades
was discovered, instead of trying
to remedy tbe matter by means ol
an "easement" ku a short distance,
tne grades should have been altered throughout the entire blocks,
without respect to cost. At present they are not in conformity
with any recognized system of
John Alexander took strong exception to the condition ol the side
walk between Lonsdale and Chesterfield avenues. It was not level
but a succession ol rises and falls.
Evidently, when the alterations had
been made in the grade at the
street intersections,no corresponding alterations had been made inr
the boull'vaitl and sidewalk specifications. He would like some definite assurance from the council,
to the effect that these serious defect! would be remedied. If that
were not provided, he wished to
point out that the property owners
have effective Jegtl remedy, as essential error had been made, in
proceeding on the basis of bench
gradei at streei intersections. Two
hundred and fifty dollars wis to
have been the city's total contribu
tion to the work for street intersec
tions, but he was informed by the
contractors thit more thin this
imount hid been spent on t tingle
intersection. How il the balance
to be arranged'
William Morden was of opinion
thit the greit mistake was with
the engineer. Resolutions had
been passed by the council governing the gradei on north and south
itreeti and these had been ignored.
Had those resolutions been observed there would have been no
trouble. Property owners on Third
itreet had an opportunity to make
a splendid street and they are willing to pay for it, but when they
did piv for it, they wanted the
work properly done and they had
the right to look to the council to
lee that such was the case.
T. J. Smith took exception to the
lowering of the waterpipe in ils
present location and at such great
cosSj and wanted to know who
would be expected to pay for it.
The mayor gave it at his opinion
that it was a necessary part ol the
improvements, lor which the ratepayers had petitioned and that they
would be expected to pay.
John Alexander took the position that had the grades been properly laid originally, this work
would not have been necessary,
tnd that lurther, it wis ol no advantage to the property owneri and
that it therefore could not be charged to them.
Jesse Williams liked, whit hai
tha blunder coil 3rd itnet ? If the
gride had been properly carried
out, then the waterpipe would not
have had to be moved and other
expenses would hive been ivoided
thit in ill could not be computed
at lets than 1(5000. No sensible
board would ever have built such
a street and he considered it a disgrace to the council.
D. W. Elder, 1. H. Selkirk,
Alex. Gibson and others spoke
briefly on different features of the
Miyor Kealy had that morning
noted the condition ol the sidewalk
previous to learning that the deputation proposed to wait on the
council, and had then decided to
aid certain questions ol the engineer. As to the blunder at street
intersections, when it was discovered he wai most astonished to
learn that it had been made, because council had a very heated
debate at the time the resolutions
were paised, and the engineer himsell had advocated straight grades
on north and south streets. The
difficulty hid been considered by
the board of works, whose recom
mendation that the return be made
to straight gndei by means of
easements had heen adopted. With
proper instructions, he was of opinion that the other objectionable
features could have been overcome.
Certainly the ratepayers must have
satisfaction and council would
thresh tin matter out until it was
understood and rectified.
Aid. Irwin made several helpful
explanations ol the engineering
difficulties attending the work,
which explained some of the features to which objection had been

comment. The minor complaints
would tike care of themselves and
as soon as the weather would permit the entire work would be completed.

The amount of damage suffered
u Vancouver as a result of the
itorm of Monday night, brings to
light the (act that North Vancouver escaped with very light penal-
tt indeed. Notwithstanding the
fact that the watershed tributary to
Vancouver streets is comparatively
mall, the damage reported is assuming large proportions. The
sewage system proved inadequate
to carry off the volume of water
ind, as a consequence, the cellars
of many leading business houses
were flooded, with serious results.
Chief among these is the Woodward departmental stores, where
the damage reaches |io,ooo, and
the Columbia brewery, where a
like amount is reported. In the
residential sections ol the city the
washing out of trenches and other
more or less alarming occurrences,
kept the population in a state of
high excitement. It is reported
that in Fairview, where new pipes
had just been laid on Granville
street and lhe trenches filled in, the
rushing water tore thc filling out
and lelt the pipe exposed. When
Nortli Vancouver citizens consider
the immense watershed whose waters pouring down in torrents must
be cared lor by the streams on this
sitli' ol the Inlet, assisted by the
drams of the city, they mint at
once conclude that the damage ac-
tilling Irom the storm was comparatively small. In fact there is
every probability that the harm
done would have been practically
nil, but for Ihe fact that the month
ol the culverts on Lonsdale avenue
became choked with cobble stones,
thus forcing; the water into the
street, where deep ruts were made
in the roadbed. The entire damage was   repaired   by   the itreet

333 Hastings St.        Vancouver THE EXPRESS, NORTH VANCOUVER, B. C.
J. W. Balmain, civil engineer,
has favored The Express with the
diagram of an idea he has formulated of making Chesterfield avenue
the main business thoroughfare of
the city. He maintains that the
grade ol Lousdile avenue is such
that it can never be made a success for business houses, aud that
it should bc maintained strictly as
a residential centre.
In his dralted plan Mr. Balmain
sets forth that Lonsdale avenue
carries a grade ol 8.7 per cent, to
Keith road,ant) 7.6 per cent, grade
thence to 8th street. The elevation at the intersection of Keith
road is placed at 168 feet and at
8th street 314 feet. To give a 7
per cent, grade from the ferry slip
straight through to 8th street, Mr,
Balmain maintains would necessi
tate a deep cut Irom Keith road to
8th, which, ol course, Would militate adversely against all fronting
Chesterfield avenue, however,
Mj. Balmain holds, naturally lends
itselt to lhe idea of the main tImr
onghlare up the bill from the water-
Iront. While it is at present only
80 leet wide, yet it would an easy
matter to acquire an additional 10
leet on each side of the avenue,
thus bringing it up to 100 leet, the
same width as Lonsdale. The
levels al the intersection ol Chesterfield aud 8th are set at 178 feet,
as against J14 feet at the intersec*
ti 111 of Lonsdale and 8th, and ion
leet at Chesterfield and i]th as
against 1 \\ at Lonsdale and 13th.
These levels will readily give a
uuili.1 ui grade ot 7 per cent, from
the waterfront to the bench lands
at the top of the hill. At the wt
terfront Chesterfield avenue could
be eitended so n to permit a
whirl to be built, at which ill
heavy businesi could be handled.
At the same lime it is an understood thing that the proposed railroad will have its stttion at the
loot ol Chesterfield.
From the intersection of 8th ami
Chesterfield,Mr. Bilmtin hu figured out ili.it distribution could be
made to all parti of the bench land
it very eisy grtdei, tuch 114.5
per cenl. eistward on 8th, 7 per
cent, eist on nth, etc. Sttrting
from 8th he would tecoaiiuend
that i In si. in. id be eatended
ttnight through, joining Lonidale
■ at 15th itreet. Thit would give
eity tcceti to Kecreition Firk, 11
well 11 affording a connection lor 1
mtin thoroughfire out to Lynn
Valley. Mr. Balmain believet that
future growth of the city will warrant hit idea being placed into execution it once, ind (hit the bett
interesti of every section of the
city would be idvinced by tdopt-
ing hit plan. The preient lerry
whirl need not be ibandoned, but
could be used for ordinary traffic,
while thc proposed one it Chesterfield could bfl made the nuin artery ol the city. The cost of carry
ing out the plan is tuggetted, the
author holds, would be but slight,
while the commensurate benefits
would be far-reaching and letting
occasion for a very appropriate incident in St. Andrew's Presbyterian church, on Saturday evening
last. Both Mr. and Mrs. Bain
have been prominent and valued
workers in the church for some
years past and their departure is
sincerely regretted. Their many
friends in the congregation could
not allow them to remove without
at least some.token of the universal esteem in which they are held,
and some recognition of appreciation of their helpful and faithful
services to tbe church. The Ladies
Aid Society, with which Mrs. Bain
was prominently connected, presented her with a lovely hand painted vase, accompanied by an address, read by Mrs. J. D, Gillam.
Mrs. G. A. McBain made the presentation, the gift being received
by Mr. Bain, in the unavoidable
absence ol Mrs. Bain. The Sunday scho"!, of which Mr. Bain was
superintendent,presented bin with
a handsome Russia leather Bible,
in connection with which G. A.
McBain read an appropriate address. Mr. Bain replied in a reminiscent vein, recalling the many
pleasant features of the associations which Mrs. Bain and himself
had been privileged to enjoy with
their cc-laborers in the cause. He
expressed the sincere appreciation
of himsell and Mrs. Bain of the regard in which they were held by
the congregation, and assured llu m
that the beautilul gifts would be
treasured as a tangible expression
of that regard.

Farewell Presentations
Thedepirture of J  S. and Mil
Bain, to reiide in Vancouver, wai
"At no time during thirty years
has the downpour been so continuous, so prolonged, and so heavy ai
within the past seven days." Such
is the verdict of one of "the oldest
inhabitants," with reference to the
recent rains. The steady, almost
unbroken, downpour has at times
increased, until the water appeared to descend in sheets, while
along (he hilltops the heaviest
storms can only be described as
literal cloudbursts. The Capilano
has reached a height hitherto unknown, having swept over the
bridge at the upper intake, the
floor of which is twenty feet above
average high water level. Lynn
creek is likewise swollen, until its
waters make a mad mountain torrent. I be new bridge has uot
been in any way affected,howover,
by the flood!. The storm reiched
iti culmination on Tuesday about
1.30 a.m., when, to use the words
of an actual witness "things seemed lo be thrown wide open and the
waters just poured down out of the
sky." Lonsdale avenue was left in
a nther dilapidated condition as a
result. The rushing waters carried cobblestones and large rocks
down thr sluice bines, which blocked the mouths ol the culverts at
the street intersections, thus forcing the water out upon the roadway, where they wore deep ruts,
washing the roadway down the
hill, and carrying large rocks with
them in their uncontrolable fury,
The high water records made by
the creeks in 1906 bave been broken in  practically ever) instance.
