ENGINEER HANES' OPINION UNANIMOUSLY UPHELD

is strongly of lhc upinion that Electric Ky. Co. as contained

modified bench grading lhe grade of Lonsdale Ave. His

csts   ol   tlic city and that   the; Irom the original bylaw   which
wa.s to the elicit that until the
city    established    permanent
gradei the ear tracks were coli
cky council lie urged to curry
this opinion iuto ellect : Mov
ed by C. F, .lackson and sec
muled by K. C, Walker.
Tin* above resolution was ihe
conclusion arrived al by one oi
the most enthusiastic meetings
of ratepayers ever held in tins
city on any public iptestion.
Tuesday evening in   Larson's
the burning question was win-
lher this city should adopt
beach or straight grades in luture and tin- matter was elucidated in a most intelligent
manner, clearly demonstrating
so far as the ratepayers present
were concerned thai the unanimous Iceling was strongly in
lavor ol modified bench grades.
Among the speakers ol lln
evening were His Worship tllc
Mayor who gave lus hearers a
clear conception ut the .subject
in hand and which led up to   a
decision ia concrete and lasting Innn, All. A. W. Sargent,
K. lv Uaeliallghlell, C. 1'.
Jachaoa, J. IV. llaltnain, A. .1.
llfiiilersnti ll-;., ,i. Baliour
Kit, Engineer Hains, Aldermen
.McNeish, Silnili/ and l-'nwler.
The decisiuii ul ilu- meeting
seemed tn hinge un the consideration   nl   lhe east   alld   ttesl
streets as i ulilintTcial lllul'ullgll-
lares, ami the north and   smith
streets as lei-dels Irulll  the   re
sidi-llllal sei Hulls, and as a mn
siipieiiie the Iceling wenl heal I
ily   in  support   ol the   former
slleels   as  being   the  principal
f.nTors lu a ping I issue     mm
menial iiii
His    Worship    was   chosen
chairman .md itatsd thai  he
had received a pcliliuii limn a
BUmbet nl ratepayers asking
that a public uieeting lie Called
10 consider the ipiestluii i.l
grades bluiiglil iiii by lhc leiclil
.niinii ni the ui\ council ill a
nsnliitiou changing ihe system
lo straight grades.
The Mavor asked  llial  what
net diiisiuii was arrived at In*
Imped that tl wuitltl be ol a pel
lllalteut   llatim   allil   he    pledged
himsell to stand by the miu In
sinus ill  the meeting,   lie then
called upon Aldermen Kowler,
Al. Nitsli aiid ScliulW, Ellgllini
Hams and Cil) Clctk Shepherd
to   take scats on  the ptaUoTttl
when he explained, desptti
siaiciucuis   lo   tin  contrary,
thai the l-.ngiiieii had lml coll
tended lor absolute stiaighi
glades.    Ulliil  Engineer    llalles
lirsl gave in Ins report on grad
mg the city throughout he wus
nol then a properly owner in
lhe uly and llus exploded all
ideas llial he was in all) WU]
biased lluw iu l.uni nl biiiihlllg
a.s had been credited lo Imu
Irom certain soiuus. "Mr.
llalles,'' coUliuued the Mayor,
"bases his upulalinii nil lluse
opinions and il is his lile wolk
and ll would be absolute lolly
to suppose llial he would bias
himsell lor a paltry loiisuliiu
lion."
He believed that every uli/.cn
had glial eoiilidenec in their en
guicer as well as recognising
lum as a model cili/cu.
Thc Mayor than proceeded io
read City Solicitor Keid's opin
ion on lhe council's power lo
establish glades and as lo
what glades weie null) established in the city. Mr. Kcid's
opinion was that the council
had power under section 511 ol
lhe Municipal Clauses Act to
make, aller or repeal or cstab
lish a general grade by bylaw,
lml stub bylaw must be regit1
1 iiul in the county court and
unless this was done the Inlaw
Was of llo legal clleel. Ib id
vised  that  he had  seal 1 bed  llie
records lot an mtry oi t Noi lh
Vamouver   bylaw   establishing
grades, but was unable to Imd
.mv, and thei clot c he considered  that  lhe uti   did  llnl    have
any grade bylaw of legal sflei 1
He   also   gave   as his opinion
sidered to be a temporary basis
but that the Company wollld
only bc required to change Iheii
grades once.
On motion of C. M. Kittson
aiid K. l'i. Alaiiiatighteti a general discussion look place.
A. IV. Sargent said that the
resolution lor Straight grades
recently passed by the council
a,une upon hun like a clap ol
thunder liom the ileal blue. He
thought that the grades ques
lion had been settled long ago
aiid was grealh surprised that
this should emanate Irom Alderman Irwin in the iacc oi the
expel t advice that had ken obtained uli lllc subject. He said
that Third street called lur tin
proper intersection of Lonsdale
Ave. and hc expected that a
number ol lhc cross streets
i\uniil hale iar lilies upon them
ul some future date and llus
but wollld have to be takm
intu consideration iu relation
to ait) .settlement of this ipies
Holt now. Mr.. Sargent coiiuu
inl wilh the Mu)or 111 leg.uil
10 the city engineer's competency and thought the mat,,
should be lell to lllc engineers
who made sidchill slreet a
study.
K.   lv   Uacnanghtea  paid a

4. Winter pruning is undcsii
able because the healing oi
wounds must wait until spiin^
Tender lliiugs are Injured
by eoltl, and hardy things by
ilrtilig ol the exposed tissiiis.
The only justification lor piuu
iug in lull and mid winter is
lhat there is leisure to do ll a!
no other season. Winter pruning is better than BO pruning at
all. Deatl or etileeliled wood
should be cut out no matter
uhal time of the year it is di:,
covered.
5. Nearly pinning keeps the
specimen well ill band and
makes heavy sawing und chopping unnecessary. It leaves the
smallest WOUadS to be healed.
It is a good habit lor the amateur lo get into, lor it insures
his combined interest in indivi
dual specimens upon which the
character and beant) ol his gai

RENAMING THE CITY

Apr. 2,t, 14111.
Tii ilic Express,
North Vancouver, li. C.
Dear Sir, I see by your paper
that the ratepayers nre reaily
seriously thinking ol changing
the name ol North Vancouver,
ami hasltii to write you my
opinion of such action.
This would mean ruination ol
the entile North Shore, the properly could not be sold lor any
thing, love or money, the
people \\ould be afraid to uy
an) investments in a place never belore heard ol. One net
lu ars of such a thing as ,1 a.ub
urban town trying  10 change
its name ill the Slates on   ,u
COttnt    ol    its    likeness    lo    lllc
larger city on which it depend*
for its bread ainl butter, In
[act, it is iiiiii the oihit wa),
lhc suburban towns are always
trying  lo jm annexed to tha
larger  ont s,    This is lonnd   In
Portland,     Seattle,    Spokane
Chicago  .nul everywhere  else.
lint go to ilu- trouble ol than
ging   count)    lines to permit
>uiii suburban towns being an
n.\til iii tlic larger tiiics. 1 am
ottini   oi   some propert)     in
North    Vancouver,   and   il    l
was a resident ol the place   I
would   ni 1.only   use  my  iiiilu
a lue to make 110 change and   1
any to   aakc tl --The   Grcatel

join   iln  iw 11 like   s,tt    \ ,,ik

known as Greater Net \ "tk.
1  hate talked with commi<
1 ial   ineli  ill  all  kinds ol    busi

Lonsdale or Lynn Vallcv oi
something ol that sort. th )

Till-; GRADE QUESTION
Editor Kxpress :
Sir,—A vigorous agitation
has been raised dm ing Un* pasl
lew weeks 111 icitaill sections ol
the city against the present
council lor proposing to re-open
lhe whole question ol gr.ules, a
question which it was generally
supposed had been linally settled by the report obtained
Irom .tltssrs. ITuiielits, Cleveland and Dawson on (lit. 141I1,
1407. Now, sir, 1 eiilirel)
agree wilh the idea that it
woultl be a grave mistake lo
re-OpCU this question, and :i
the count ll reall) had any
such intention 1 should oppose
that intention to lhe extent ol
my power, llul in ill) opm
1011 the whole mattei has arisen
iioiu   a   somewhat  ohecnrel)
ttol dell motion, 1 believe
cvcllls will prove that the
council are picparul to main
tain the reeoiniiiclidatiuns ol
the report ot Oct. l.|lh, 140;.
11 so, then il is clear that
those who have been raisiiij;
this outer) ate logically bonud
to-support the council, lor am
othei course ol action would
sltillily ihose who hate rained
tins agitation,   lu ilns commi
lion 1 may brielly advert to the
curious attitude ol the meet
tug recently held iu Larson's
I'.n ihon. The lirst ipeakei
■trough criticised the council
iioin proponing to depart lruin
the report of Messrs. Clements,
Cleveland and Dawson. He was
vigorousl) applauded by the att-
'liiiin.     Nevertheless, he    and
a plcpiilitliilllg  Section ot  those
present   supported   a   motion
whose real -licet was lo reopen the question and rejected
HI) own proposal "That the re-
iiillililcllilatlolls >>| Missis. Cle-
lllellls,  Cleveland  and    Dawson,
contained in their report ol (K
tober   1 ith, 1407,  he adhered
to." Comk opera is all «t)
Well in Us plan- but it is lloi
applicable to the conduit ol
.imi allairs, and I submit that
il those who have raised th
aiili rv were sincere in tlieir at
titiule they are bound lo support the settlement of l»*<>7.
