deal of business was despatched.

C. F. Jackson, chairman of the
committee of fifteen, submitted the
report of the committee with reference to constitution and bylaws,
which was considered seriatim and
adopted with amendments. The
name of the organization is the
"City of Nurth Vancouver Kate-
payers' Association". The objects
of the association are to promote
the general iuterests of the city of
North Vancouver, and particularly
to aim at the adoption of such
measures as will result in an economical and progressive administration, in all the di-partments of
municipal government ; lo support
the mayor and council in all measures that may commend themselves to the association; especially to strengthen their hands in
protecting the city from encroachments upon public rights by individuals or corporations ; to protect civic interests by zealous attention to legislative and municipal measures, with a view to remedying and preventing injurious leg
islation, unfair or excessive tsxa-
ition, or other evils ; to arouse interest in civic elections ; to secure
the election of good and able citizens, to tbe offices of mayor and
aldermen ; and for such other purposes as may appear desirable.
The membership clause reads:
"Ail ratepayers and municipal
voters, resident or nun-resident, ofl
the city ul Norlh Vancouver, shall
be eligible for membership iu this
association, but the mayor and
aldermen and city officials shall
not be eligible lor membership."

S. D. Schultz, vice-president,
said that the association had a
great work to do, but that success
must depend upon lhe faithful el-
forts of the individual members.
There is lots of work calling for
attention and it should be taken
up williout delay. The purpose
should be at all times to discuss
principles and measures, rather
than men. A platform should be
brought out, embodying the principles of the association and, if
neceasary, candidates should be
put in the field. The association
wished to work in harmony with
the council for the prusperity of
North Vancouver.
H. V. Smith and H. W. Young
made a few remarks upon the need
of hard work in the interests of the

privilege of making some statements as to the 3rd street work.
He said he had received a letter,
asking him to apologize tu lhe city
engineer, because of certain remarks he had addressed to him.
Mr. Gibson rehearsed the circumstances which led up to his mak
iug the remarks, to which exception has been taken, and considered that he had made theni under
provocation from the city engineer,
ivhich made it equally incumbent
on the engineer to apologize tu
him. Mr. Gibson was prepared to
j do his part in a mutual apology
from one to the other. The meet
ing adjourned until Tuesday evening next at the city hall.

333 Hastings St.        Vancouver THE EXPRESS, NORTH VANCOUVER, B. C.
A general meeting of the North
Vancouver Horticultural Association and Farmer's Institute was
held in the pavilion Friday evening.
In opening the meeting the president, Alexander Smith, stated
that the members had been called
together for the reason that the
association found itself in financial
difficulties, and in order to relieve
the si'uation a proposition had
been made to dispose of three
acres of the property to the city,
for public purposes.
The first difficulty that presented itself was the fact, which discussion brought out, that there is
a clause in the deed to the association, which stipulates that the property shall be used for certain specific purposes for a stated term of
Alex. Philip reviewed the history
of the movement up to the present,
stating that the term referred to
was five years and would terminate
in two years. The present deficit
is ,<('v>. and another J650 would be
required for incidentals and for
completing the building. Several
plans had been considered,of which
the only practical one appeared to
be that outlined by the president.
True, it meant the alienation of
thiee acrea of ground, but this
would be used for an allied purpose, while at the tame time the
association would be able with the
proceeds (J6000) to carry out their
complete plans as to building,
grounds, etc. They would then
have a thoroughly first-class property, the maintenance of which
would, in large measure, be pro
vidi d lor by proceeds from rental
of building.
In response to the request of H.
L Radermacher, the secretary, R.
L. Docherty, read an itemized financial statement, showing receipts
amounting to I4H43.3S, and disbursements totalling $4729,leaving
a cash balance on hand ol |l 14.38.
He also read a statement of liabilities totaling |i 133.66, leaving
fioio,. 18 to be provided for.
William Morden noted the fact
thai the proceeds of the loan of
13000 were 1*1938.75. He considered the costs of the loan excessive
and would like to see a statement
showing what they were.
S. D. Schultz recollected that
when the loan was authorized, there
was a motion restricting the coat of
the building to a stated amount,
which he thought was I3000, whereas it had actually cosl I3686.89.and
would yet require Ijooto complete
Alter an extended discussion,
participated in by Messrs. Keene,
Kelly, and those already mentioned, a special committee was appointed, compriaing Wm. Morden,
A. E. Crickmay, and J. Y. McNaught. This committee will procure a copy ol the deed ol the property, a statement ol the costs of
the loan, and excerpts from the
minutes bearing on the original
authority given the board ol direc
ton relative to the building. These
documents will be submitted to an
adjourned meeting, to be held in
the city hall on Tuesday, the 34th
tioning against its too great use in
these ways to the detriment of the
special work for which it is originally purchased. For the purpose
of driving machinery, the engine
should be fitted with a governor,
also a small steam ejector, and a
length of suction hose is useful for
raising feed water to the engine
Scarifyer.—For the purpose of
making the road foundation and
grading.and the preparation of old
road surfaces for metalling, there
should be attached to the roller a
scarifyer; this instrument is so useful and necessary that no roller
should be without one.
Tool and Coke Truck.—A two
wheeled truck, carrying a vice and
other tools, with oil and coke, is a
necessary attendant on the roller.
Watering Cart and Pump.—
When rolliug.especially the finishing coat.it should be well watered.
A handy two wheeled water cart is
necessary, with a pump attached to
fill it, where water from hydrants
is not available.
Metal Trucks-—Two ten ton
capacity tripping trucks for distributing and hauling the metal to
the road is an economy. These
should be provided with springs
and screw brakes,
j.Sleeping Truck.—A light truck
with sleeping bunks for four men,
and a compartment with cooking
utensils, is very necessary in this
district, and a vehicle of this kind
is usually provided in country districts.
Stone Breaking Plant.—One 16
inch by 9 inch knapping motion
jaw stonebreaker, with suitable
pulley and adjustable toggles.hav-
ing a three compartment scrien,
and fitted with elevating machinery
for loading. To be mounted on
wheels and frame with a draw bar.
The breaker should also be fitted
with a suitably wound electric motor, so that it may be electrically
driven where electricity is available, setting the roller free for its
proper work.
II a quarry suitably situated for
the more populous parts of the
district is opened where electricity
is not within reach, the most economical form of power is the suction
gas plant and gas engine. The
cost of power hy this method is
about two cents par hour for twenty horse power, with coal at $3 per
ton. The attention required by
this plant is filling the hopper
every three hours and seeing to
the running of the engine. Une
man is easily able to overlook the
driving plant and breaker.
There are now in the market
light 5 ton steam and motor trolleys that have been coming into
great favor from their reliability
and economy in work. They
travel at the rate of 7 to 10 miles
an hour and are easily handled and
turned in narrow roads. Such a
machine would do much more than
a team of horses at a cost per day
of about ti- They are provided
with tipping platforms and made
(or the haulage of road metal.
When it is decided to invite tenders for this machinery a careful
specification will have to be prepared on the lines of the best
The estimated cost of Roller,
Trucks, Water Carts and Stone
breakers, is six thousand dollars.

A deputation Irom Lynn valley
recently waited upon Reeve May,
to ascertain whether he will again
be a candidate lor the position that
he now holds. Reeve May was
assured by the deputation that, if
he was in the field, he would be
unopposed, so (ar as Lynn valley
was concerned; but if he did not
inlend to seek re-election, they
would like to be apprised of the

be taken ai might be deemed wise.
Mr. May expressed his appreciation ol the kindness ol the electors
in thui offering him the refusal, so
to speak, of the raeveship, but in
tun.ti"l that he had decided not to
present himself as a candidate for
the poaition for the ensuing year.
