md the city solicitor, it wa.s

.0 he subinitied to the company
iy the council. About one
veek ago the solicitors were in-
itructed to proceed witli ine
■econd action, and application

ire to carry out the conditions

if service* Should the council

.11 Vancouver, and the steamer
St. George, hut with no ferry
icense. The conditions of the
.oiiipaiiy's lease of the wharf on
-he Vancouver side, from llie
J.PJt., were such tnal tne company could use the wharl onlv
.or a ferry service to North
Vancouver, and thai they could
part with it only to tne city
.iiiiuil of North Vancouver,
The city solicitor further pointed out that the lease from the

The committee expressed
themselves as satisfied that lhc
proceedings already instituted
should be gone on willi, atul resolved to recommend as follows
to the council: lhat after due
consideration with die city solicitor, and alter haviflg considered various phases of uie
ferry question, the committee
knows ol no reason why proceedings should bc stopped in
the actions pending against the
ferry company, in regard to the
i.incellalion of the agreement
antl sub-lease, on the grounds 0
failure to carry oul the condi
lions ol the suli-lease and inad
eqiiacv of service; and lhe ac

The committee then uiiisidc
ed a lettei Innn Messrs   Davis
M.itsli.ill I M.11 .miii, solicitors

company against tht rival Ierry
service, and it was decided that

fying the company's solicitors
that the council do not see that

at present in possession ol the
wharl, under a verbal agree
ineiit made in June last, it
hating been agreed lhat me
council should lease the wharl
to thr ferry coinpanv frnin
month to month. I'nder these
conditions, uie citv SolkitOI
was of opinion that the com-
panv was bound, in their own
interests, to look after the
wharf; that they remain in pos
session tinder the covenants
stipulated in the agreement,and
he was of opinion thai lhe com.
pany would be held responsible
if any action occurred in uie
meantime, unless the company
gave the council formal notice
llial there is some defect in the
construction of the wharf.
The committee thereupon relived mat, with reference to
the above letter, the committee
would advise that, as uie company is sun 111 possession ol uu
wharf under lhe existing agreement, thev be lloliimi ut*. uiey
are responsible for the up-kcep
of the wharl (luring stici. time
as they remain in possession.
The ciiy solicitor stated that
he thought the petition for ihe
mediation nl uie lease would
be heard early in January.
In answer to questions he further advised that lhe council
vould not possibly deal with
iny other company until Ihey
were freed from the present one;
tt under uie law, lerry licenses could be granted to individuals for only live years and had
to be gazetted, but to municipalities for longer periods.
The committee reported further that the action referred lo
is being proceeded with. Report received.

The submission ot the piiiiion

Seuiiul Narrows bridge, invests
the approaching session of the
proviiici.il legislature wil 11 unusual interest lor an extended
constituency, The action ol
the government will have 1 very
serious baariag upon iht waUan
not alone ol the norlh shore,
bill of the entile centre ol population located about lhe shores
of Hurrard Inlet, so that,while
the city and districi ol North
Willi ouver 111.iv Ik* said lo be
more atari) 11'merited in the
outioiue of ilu* niovciiicn!, a is
nevertheless   a   fact   thai    thc
future program of an tht com*

will la' materially promoted 01
litanlcd bv the developments ill
lhe house.
Further, it is i|llite evident
that tor many vears to tonic,il
h"t Iiii  all tune,  the preponder
common interests of which tht)
are stewards.
To allow a bridge for merely
railway purposes to be built a-
eross the Second Narrows, and
more especially iis engineers declare that il could be so constructed as to render a second
bridge ot anv character, impracticable, to the exclusion for tht
future of the possibility of a
traffic bridge at that point,
would place the brand of care
lessness and incompetence for
.ill hlture generations upon lhe
adininstratioii which permitted
such a calamity to occur; while,
upon the other hand, the judicious expenditure of public
lllinls to Imi Id at that point a
publii wotk ol the proper char-
.nter and capacity, would be a
CourtC whose wisdom would become more clearly apparent u
lime elapsed, and which would
cause     luture   generations     lo
commend the foresight of those
who so windy laid the Inundations for provincial development.
There ate many considerations which point to the fact,
lhat the lime lor action in this
mailer has arrived. To debit
the granting ol a subsidv beyond the approaching session ol
lhe provincial house would, in
all probability, mean the   lnss

There enter Vancouver eveiv
year many thousands of strung

work at their trade, or employment in their profession; others
of whom are in qutat of opportunities lo start in business;
others in search of lands upon
which to settle; others looking
for suitable sites for industrial
or manufacturing purposes ;
others with capital for investment under londitions which

Last week the dramatic clul
again gave the public an opportunity of seeing theni iu two
plays, a comedy entitled "Naval Engagements," by Lharlet
Dance, and a one act farce,
"Turn Uini Out,1' by T. J,
Williams. 'lhc conteily is not
very attractive either in plot Ol
dialogue, and this had a visibh
ellect in the general lack ol ani
illation which al times prevail
ed on the stuge.
The dramatis personal ol llu
comedy were Admiral King
ston (VV. .1. Bui ler i, aud hi:*
son, Lieutenant Kings tot (H
L. McPherson), Mrs. Pontile
i.il is. C. !•'. Jackson), and Alls:
Mortimer (.Miss Violet Oratl
well). The admiral and hi:
son meet alter sonic years' ab
senn*, Imlil having become (unknown lo each oilier) engaged
the former lo Miss Mortimer
his junior by 30 years, and tin
hitler lo Mrs. Pontiles, hit
senior by 15 years. 'Ihese loin
people arrive al lhe Fountain
11111, Portsmouth, and the lieutenant iinds in Miss .Morlimer
au old schoolmate and quondam
sweetheart, and thev quite naturally resume the relationships
ol earlier days. This, 01
coiir.se, was ilnpiudeiit, to say
lhe least of it, when both then
real lianiecs were close at hand.
However, ihe admiral and Mrs.
Pontiles were quite equal to
lhe occasion, ami llieir mutual
admiration (or each other proceeded-on the usual lines, and a
transference of affections having
been (fleeted ov common consent, lile old loves were dropped
antl lhc new ones adopted, am.
all lived happily ever alter.
\\. .1. Btlllcr was seen al his
Insl in conjunction with his son
the lieutenant, in their patent]
and iilial reminiscences, ami
Mrs. lacksun was nl real assistance lo the admiral by het
patient and encouraging alien
linn, when he liuinlli press*
his suit. .Miss (.iailwcll also,
111 an affectionate outburst,
piIH11I his .mt, antl lhe limelight therealler siiotie on telltale* linger marks on the ad
mini's besl Sunday coat.
Mrs. Jackson played the part
of Mrs. Pontiles very well,am.
H. L, Mcl'herson was a typical
naval officer of the present day
Miss Gradwell acted wilh 1.
vivaciousness which looked as i,
she would suit the son liettei
than the lather.
The landlord ol the inn waj
Frank Diplock, and the Irish
waiter, Dennis, was Allan B
Stevenson, and to litem is dut
most of lhe credit for brightening up the humdrum nature ol
the play. Frank Diplock looked a typical landlord, and hi
played the part well, und tht
same must be said of Allan B
Sleveiisnn, as the Irish waiter.
The repartee which these twt
indulged in was highly amusiiij!
though Dennis must have sojourned as long in the land 0
cakes, as in lite Kincrald Isle,
to have given him the lum ol
his tongue and pawky humor.
It may be remarked, however,
that than was a palpable anachronism in the costumes of tin
naval gentlemen and the hotel
landlord and waiter. The naval costumes were up to dale,
while those oi lhe landlord and
waiter were of the early eight
ies.     The landlord's arbanitj
and solicitous care of hit*
guests lertainlv did not smack
ni any modern hostelry which
the wilier is acquainted with.
In "Turn Him Out," the att-
diiine were entertained much
beller, and lhe rollicking fun
011 the stage provoked roars nl
laughter.     Allan Stevenson, as
Nicodcmua Nobba, the  ptdltr,
quit! lived up to Ins job as
"chucker out," nnd gave, with
Miss Dean Pitt (Susan, the
slavey,) a clever portrayal nl
lile below stairs, ai Sutflowet
bulge. Miss Dean Pitt always
takes the eve, and loses heistll
in her pari. Sydney Humphries, as Mackintosh Moke, the
owner of Suiillnwer lodge and
husband of Julia (Mrs. Allan
Stevenson,) was capital, and
his battered hat, split coat,and
tattered trousers, gave ample
proof of Nobbs' attention when
he wa.s evicted from his own
home. This, of course, was a
case of mistaken identity, but
no one felt sorry for him, as he
had just returned from "day
Puree" and had left his wife at
home. Mrs. Stevenson has a
good stage presence, and she
both dressed and played her
part with ability. Frank Dtp-
lock, as Eglantine Rustical,the
dude, persisted in pat ing court
to Julia, and has got In thank
lhat lady fnr his escape at the
hands ni N'nbbs and Mr. Mnke
from a sound drubbing. His
make up was good and his foppish sayings and doings were
most amusing.
Miss Betty caincinn and M*ss
I). Maiinii gave selections on
lhe violin and piano respectively, which were much UJOJTtd,
Tin* Itagt properties and seen
cry were very ellective, and
are to be congratulated on the
result of tlieir work in this direction, 'lhe prompter's post
was nol exactly a sinecure.
St. Jot u's Choir Recital
The second of ihe monthly
recitals by lhe members oi st
John's choir was given in the
church, mi Monday nigiu, before a large and appticiativi
audience. . „e lady singers
were Mrs. Allan and Mrs. Law
son (soprano), Mrs. Heweif
and Mrs. Anders (contralto,)
ind ihe gentlemen were v.. II.
Hooley, (baritone) and . . \V.
Harrup and II. V. Smith iten-

a good rendering of llieir songs,
mil   lhe   quartette singing    ol
Messrs. Smith, Choyce, Alexander and Janus, was highly appreciated.    G. \v. Bislop gave
two numbers on the violin,and
