Mayor Kealy preside
H. W. Goldbie, secretary of the
Vancouver waterworks, wrote, requesting permission to run a telephone line along Keith roaJ, from
Lonsdale ave to Seymour creek.
Referred to Aid. Wheeler, to ascertain whether it is rroposed to
erect new poles or to use those already in place.
A petition from thirteen residents, for an arc light at the corner
of Chesterhebl ave and 17th street,
was referred to the light committee
to report. Ihe petition states that
there is no light on Chesterfield
north of 14th street.
Alex. Philip wrote, advising the
council of the willingness of the
district to arrange to supply the
city with crushed rock; and also to
allow tbe city to use the steam
roller when not required by the
district. Matter laid over until
machinery is received by the district.
The district clerk likewise forwarded the resolution passed bv
the district council, with respect to
the Alaska-Yukon exposition, and
reques.ltd the cooperation of the
city in the movement. Councillor
McNaught spoke 111 support of the
project, which was referred to the
finance committee.
I. M. Heard, manager ol the N
V. Light & Power Co. wrote, ad-
viiiug ihe council that the boan
of directors had resolved that the
strainer North Vancouver would
be withdrawn from service from
December ist to April ist, unless
the city will refund the full amount
ol operating expenses for that period. The directors regret that this
action is necessary, but, in justice
to their shareholders, they cannot
sustain the double service at a loss
during tbe winter months.
A second letter from Manager
Heard notified council of the intention of Ihe, company to change
the time of departure of the second
early morning boat from 6.40 to
7 o'clock.
Aid. May said that ii the lerry
company is clearing 117,000 per
year, as stated when the ierry purchase bylaw was under dtso. ssion,
he could not understand why it
was necessarv to curtail the service during the winter season. If
tbe company was short of capital,
why did they not sell Lonsdale
gardens, which were considered
valuable according to statements
made at the same time, and invest
the proceeds in the business.
Aid. Wheeler moved that the
clerk be instructed to reply, that
il the boat were removed from the
run as proposed, then the actions
entered against the company on
May 11st and 28th last would be
pushed at once.
A,ld. Crickmay thought that this
action might give the impression
that, if the boat were not removed
thn actions would be dropped,
when as, as he understood the
matter, those actions were held in
aibi'v .nn 1* while negotiations for an
agreement were pending.
Aid. Braim wished to know what
had become ol the draft agreement
that the council had forwarded to
the lerry company some time ago,
and the information was elicited
that no reply had been received.
Aid. May was of the opinion that
it would he well for the lerrv committee to interview the ferry company in the matter, to assure them
that the council means business,
and that unless they maintain an
adequate service the legal proceedings will he pushed.
It was finally resolved, on motion of Aid. May and Wheeler,that
the ferry committer interview the
board ol directors of the ferry company and report at a special meeting to be held on Thursday evening. The committee comprises
Aid. Irwin, Crickmay and Smith.

i. That all settlers are entitled

4 foot sidewalk,similar to those already provided, at general expense;
and that local improvement street
work should not meantime be undertaken, except on the petition of a
large proportion of the owners interested, and even then only for
works of public utility.
3. That the frontage tax bylaw
be amended, so that one-third of
the total cost of the work to be
done, including the necessary street
intersections, be charged to the
general account.
4. Tnat all streets already cleared be kept clear of wood and debris from making the roads for the
appearance of the town, and for a

as tba block from St. George's to
St. Andrew's avenue, a six foot
sidewalk would be quite sufficient,
and any wider sidewalk would be
a waste of money.
Walter Owen as strongly stated
that, as for the block between
Lonsdale and St. George's avenue
a twelve foot sidewalk was asked
for, and that was what was wanted
The mayor pointed out that the
petition asked for a twelve-fool

mad:' of lhe frontage' tax plan in
ilns connection,
1'he qualifications Mated in
clause eight, with relation lo the
location ol the main line ol railway
through iln 1 ity, are of a most desirable character. The charter at
present in force for a railway line
levies no restrictions whatever in
these matters. The charter gives
thc right to run level street crossings, with ull tlieir unsightliness,
inconveiiii im and il.ingei:,; and
also the right of deviation (or three
hundred leet along thi waterfront,
sn that the lineCOUld be so located
ihat the railway Iini would cut otf
the greater portion of a waterfront
lot from the water, and leave such
a small area contiguous to the wa
ter as to render it practically use
less lor the purpuses for which
such property is ordinarily utilized
A railway siibwav at every stmt
craning, and llii* preserving of the
Waterfront properties intact, are
considerations of great moment to
thc future of the city.
Educational matters are dealt
With in clause nine.    The rapid in-
1 lease* ol pupils at Cbcaterfield
ave school during leccut months
makes it evident that adequate
provisions mus' be made for the
expansion of the public school
s*. st, in of the ntv. either by the
■ Itlblilhmenl ol one ot more additional s, bonis, each with its own
pi iik ipal, or by the inauguration
ol the watd system, under which a
uf schools lor pupils ot the

different sections  ol  the city, and
oae large central school, at which
the mod advancd pupils would
attend, and which would be presid*
eel over by the principal ol tbe culm s\sieiu. Tins inevitable expansion necessitates school sites,
well   located   atel   spacious, and
tin I. is certainly nothing to ba

Councillors McNaught, Robson,
Nye, and Davidson were present
at the regular session of the district council Friday night, Reeve
May occupying the chair.
Edward Francis wrote, request
ing that council carry out the work
of opening up access between Deep
Cove and Keith road, as previously agreed upon. Engineer Cameron advised the cduncil that what
the residents at Deep Cove urgently needed was the opening up of a
power line along the section line
of D. L. 624 to its junction with
Keith road; board of works to act.
J. H. Diamond, writing on behalf of H. B. Ardagh, advised the
council that property owners are
prepared to pay $250, to assist in
building 1 road to give access to
the south east quarter of D.L. 802.
Engineer was instructed to investigate and board of works to act, if
the cost is reasonable.
Councillor Nye thought that
there was some doubt as to the
power of council to re-open that
portion ol the old and disused road
10 this section,which runs thiuugh
private property, the latter having
been subdivided into lots and
streets aud the plan registered.
The motion, however, was carried.
B. A. Welbon, managing director of the B C. American Mining
&, Development Syndicate, wrote,
agreeing to open up the old Lillooet trad up Seymour creek to
Copper mountain, provided council make a donation of Jioo toward
the work. Payment authorized

moved in with his family. He request lhat a suitable toadway be
built iu Irom Centre street, a distance ol 1300 feet to hu residence.
Board of works to act.
Ralph Adams wrote, complaining that surlace water from Centre
street has flooded the roadway in
the vicinity ol his residence, on
lot 5, D L. ion, and asking that
a ditch be dug to remedy the difficulty.    Board of works to act.
W. M. Morrison submitted a
memo of work done in boulevard-
ing 132 feet in front of lots 11, 12,
and 13, block 19, Frederick road,
at 8 cents per loot. Relerred lo
board ol works.
J. Ward advised council of his
intention to erect a residence on
lot It. block 2169, and asked that
a road be constructed to the property, along Detnpiey road, a distance of two blocks.
A deputation from the city council, comprising Aid. Smith and
Crickmay, waited on council to
confer with reference to the rock
crusher and road roller, which the
district proposes to purchase. Alderman Smith explained that in his
opinion the best plan of co-opera*
tion would be that the district
should sell crushed rock, etc., to
the city, at a price to be agreed
upon, and that the city be granted
the use of the street roller when
not required by the district, at 1
rental to be decided later. The
council wn of the opinion that
iuch an arrangement wonld be
satisfactory to the district, but was
not prepired to proceed with the
matter until the machinery is received.
Thomas le Meisurier, secretiry
of the Capilano Improvement Association, forwarded the association's endomtion of 1 draft letter
lubmitted by (he diitrict clerk, to
be forwarded by the Dominion
govtrnment, liking the latter to
build a public whirl at Hollyburn,
it 1 coit of 117,000. The letter
wis ordered to be suitably arrang*
ed, duly tigned by the reeve ind
clerk, with the officiil teal attached, and to he forwirded to Ottiwa.
Board of works iccounti, totaling #455*60, md waterworki om*
mittee account! of #13.50 were ordered piid.
The clerk reid the igreement
between the city and the district
re interchange of water lervice.
The igreement had already been
duly executed by the city ind wai
ordered signed by the district.
The clerk read a draft of an
agreement with thc city, with reference to running overheid telephone wires along Keith roid to
Seymour creek pipe line roid. The
agreement itipulites that the poles
are to be placed ai directed by the
district engineer; that they are to
be removed to another position as
directed when street improvements
require, and that there is to be a
c'ear head room of 21 feet between
the roadway and the wires.
Upon tbe report of the district
engineer, Donald A. Cameron, the
east bank of Lynn creek, 500 feet
above the new bridge, is to be cut
back; the channel is to be cleared
out, and a brush mattress is to be
laid along the log jam at the spot.
The abutments of the new bey-
mour creek bridge are to be raised
to an additional height of 4 feet 6
inches, giving a clear head of seven
feel above the highest recorded
water level. The engineer reported that there is a clear head of 4
feet six inches on the Lynn creek
Coun. McNaught directed the
attention of council to the fact
that the provincial government
will have a section at the Alaska-
Yukon exhibition, to be held iu
Seattle next year, and stated that
it would be a wise move for the
district to secure space in the provincial building lor the display of
exhibits of the resources of the district, together with the distribution
of illustrated pamphlets and other
literature descriptive of the district.
He therefore moved, seconded by
Councillor Nye, as follows: In view
of the near approach ot the Alaska
Yukon exposition at Seattle, and
the intention of the provincial
government to have an exhtliit
thereat, aud as this municipality
has large resources in the form of
minerals, timber, sites for manufac-
turies.scentcresorts of great beauty,
farm and orchard lands, sites for
dwelling houses, and extensive
range of waterfront, suitable fjf
wharves and docks for ocean shipping and industrial works, this
council resolves to take steps to
place an exhibit in the said provincial section, to advertise these resources at the said exposition, and
that a sum be voted to commence
the collection of suitable advertising material, in the form of photographs and reading matter; that
the finance committee be authorized to carry this resolution into
effect, and that the city council be
requested to cooperate in the matter.    The motion carried.
Alaska-Yukon Fair
within a short time after his arrival
in Seattle.
The Canadian exhibit will include a display of its agriculture and
horticulture. Its mining resources
will be shown and special attention
will be given to dairying, and some
of the finest stock in the world will
be shown in this display.
In his letter, Commissioner
Hutchison states that the work ol
collecting the various exhibits has
been under way for several months,
and the entire display will be assembled three months in advance of
theopening of the exposition.
The dominion government will
construct a building at the Alaska-
Yukon-Pacific exposition, to be
held in Seattle on June 1 to October 16, 1909, inclusive, covering a
ground space of 300x150 feet.
Wm. Hutchison, Canadian exhibition commissioner, who is now
in London, has been notified by
the Canadian government to leave
for Seattle as soon as possible, to
select the site and make arrange
ments for the construction of the
building. It has been definitely
known for some time that the government of Canada would participate in the big fair, but this is the
first official information regarding
the scope of the plans.
In 1 letter to President I. E.
Chilberg, Commissioner Hutchison
stites that it will not be possible
for him to leave London before
January 1, and requests the exposition management to select a site
that would be best available for
Canada. He also requests ground
plans of the exposition in order
that the outline of the building
may be worked out before his ar*
rivil in Seattle.
The announcement that the gov
ernment of Canada will be repre*
sented on such a large scale as the
size of the site desired indicates,
has aroused general interest
throughout the state of Washing
ton. It is apparently the intention
to make a complete exhibit of all
the varied resources of Canada, ind
the building will also house the
display from the Yukon territory.
The ipice which it is proposed to
cover will be the largest occupied
by any one building on the
There are three available sites
that may be used for the Canadian
building. One is located adjoining
machinery hall on one side and the
forestry building on the other, and
overlooking Like Washington.
Another is a large tract next to the
California state building, and also
overlooking Lake Washington,ind
the third is below the geyser bisin
and at the lower end of thc string
of main exhibit palaces, overlooking both Lake Washington and
Lake Union.
The choice of one of these three
tiles will be offered to Canada
through Commissioner Hutchison.
Ground plans and all of the necessary data have been prepared and
forwarded to him at London, and
it ii expected the commissioner
will be in shape to call for bids lor
the construction  of  the building
