A very representative audience gathered at the eail of the
board of trade, Saturday afternoon last, to hear the eastern
stockholders ol the N. V. Ferry
& Power Co., Mr. Perry atul
Mr. Miller. President D.G.Dick
acted aa chairman.
In a brief and pointed address
Mr. Perry explained the actual
situation Irom the eastern
shareholders' viewpoint, lie explained that thev had not been
laken hilly into confidence as to
local conditions; that the annual reports forwarded comprised a brief financial statement,
and that the only inkling nun
thev had received ol the dissal-
islaction existing at Nortli i an.
couver, was when some liieiiu
would lorward a copy ol a
newspaper giviag some   oi   tin
facts.   The eastern shareholders
had lieen induced to invest
money in the concern by representations made to them by
those who had local interests
to serve, and they had invested
as in a business proposition,expecting satisfactory returns.
Since seeing the situation foi
himself, he considered that  it
was to be deplored thai the
company had not lived in liar
nioiiy with tin* citixens ol this
citv. It should have been lam
down as a lirsl principle, thai
the interests ol the town an
the Interests ol the ferry. Because the heat lest shareholders
lived thousands oi miles away,
il was necessary to entrust the
management to local shareholders, whose interests are comparatively small. In their elide.nor lo gel dividends,   the]
had not shown due colisiili t.i
tion to lhe interests oi this
city. Mr. Perry slated that
he hail requested tins aedienct
in order thai he might Iind out
what the people want, and he
would do all he could lo promote llien tushes willl the mill-
pant .
Tin tlmi difficulty is that ilu
stock is on lied, in the mam. bj
people who art lav away, who
hate large interests ill the casl,
and who consequently do not
leel pariiml.islv interested in
ilns mt. ll a leu North \ an-
iiiuver residents wollld buy sulliuenl stmk to ipialily lm  the
board ol directors, nu-y couiu
be elected, and the control placed in llu* hands ol property
owners in this city, 'llie iie.ui-
quarli-rs could be translenci i"
tins side ol the Inlet ami the
business operated in the interests ol North Vancouver.
The existing situation li'oin

shore was brought oul in all

Mr. Perry slated llial In ii.ni
been given some Straight lails

The lerry should be ntuicd   ami
controlled by North \ aacoavsi
people, and Ile would like to gel
some ol then lo buy inlo the
company.
Iu reply to i-tii'slimis, Mr.l'ii-
1) staled as lollmts: Whaletii
the property ol the company is
I'lasoliably Worth, exilusive ol
l.olisiiale gardens, lie Would be
willing lo sell lt lo the ult. lie
was favorably inclined toward
the proposition ol accepting the
arbitrated value ol the plant.
lie represented  aboui  jj pn
cent ol the slink and understood ihai a majority  ol   the
shales louiil   sell   tlic  assets    .1!
tin* company.   He thought thai
lhe compan) conld sell its charter to the eily, along with tin*
assets, lit disposing ol 1,'illsd.ile
gardens   to a subsidiary   com
pany, atul then transferring the
shares of the company, He
considered North Vancouvei debentures excellent security and
would be willing to accept city
debentures in payment for the
company's assets.
A hearty vole ol thanks was
accorded Mr. Perry and the
meeting adjourned.
