NUMBER 22
Meeting Discusses Bridge Question
At thc call ol Mayor Taylor,
of Vancouver, a meeting ol
great iinportance to the new
project oi building Second Narrows bridge under the control ol
the city and district municipalities situated on and ubout Hurrard Inlet, was held at the city
hall, Vancouver, on Tuesday.
That the meeting meant business was evidenced by the wording of the resolution that was
linally adopled, w^hidi was as
follows:
"Thut the municipalities represented here this alternoon,
hereby endorse the advisubilit-
ol sending a strong delegation
to OttSWS in the interests ol the
muiiicipulilies and the public,
to secure that which will be
beiieiiii.il lo all the municipalities which have signed the petition to the government at Ottawa; as we consider it is much
preferable to have public utilities, in the shape oi intercom-
munication, in the hands ol
these public bodies, rattier than
have them in the hands ol private interests."
There were present at tlu
meeting, dub-gates from the
cities ol Vancouver and Norlh
Vancouver, Irom the districts of
North Vancouver, Point Gn-\
and Hurnaby, also Messrs .las.
C. Keith, Ba Mahon, Lambert
Hond and li, Oilman, representing the Hurrard Intel I iiniiel
and Bridge Company. Mr. A.
lv Woods, managing director
ol the V. W. & V. Railway Co.
was also in atHida-i'v
Mayor Taylor was appointed
to the chair, and in bnel remarks explained that UW unci
ing had lieen calkd 'g set il
some steps umlil not be t.i'.aii
to expedite the building ii Second Narrows bridge by 11 ai .is
ol an agreement l«el.te... th..
several municipalities rr pi court*
ed. They were all agreed th.u
the bridge would lie ol gi>al
bent-lit to Norih Vancouver ..mi
of even greater benefit to Van
couver.
Krevi> Mi Naughl reviewed the
history ol the Second Narrows
bridge project. A charter for
the construction of the bridgi
had for years been in lhe hands
of the V. W. & V. Kailway Co.,
but nothing had ken done. He
himself had pressul llial unu-
pany to lake active steps, without avail, until he ll.nl at last
sought other means ol securing
the bridge, lt li.nl la-en found
thut the charier of lhe Hurrard
Tunnel and Bridge Coinpanv,
granted eighteen years ago,was
still intact, uud il had accordingly been acquired.
The Provincial I'.overniiinii
hud bests consulted ami s tubs!-
dy of $250,000 hud been promised Irom thut source ou condition thut the bridge wus toll-
trollt-d by the municipalities interested, ulso ihat all railways
sliould have running privileges
over it oil llie same basis, ami
that it was to Ih- free lor pules-
triau and veluuilar trallic.
The respsctive municipalities
were then appi'ti.u lied and a tentative agreement had lieen ar-
rivinl at for raising sscassary
binds by co-operation. Tlic\
likewise hud good reason lo ue-
lirvii that substantial assist am c
woultl Ik.- forthcoming Irolll the
Dominion Government. If .he
extended powers sought .i -re
granted and iln dominion sub-
Mil \ uas secured, il was hoped
that work nn llie bridge woultl
be started in a few tiionllis „'.d
that it would lie completed in
about iK Months. The estim
ateil cost of the bridge eras Jl,-
11011,1100, alld already eastern
Capitalists had been seeking llie
privilege ol providing any a-
molint up to the total   cost   ol
the structure.    The Provincial
government .lad promised S250,
000, the distriit oi North Vancouver would provide f 100,(1 m,
or probably  |soo,ooo  il   Secss-
sarv. It was hoped that tin*
citv ol Vancouver would lotttri-
l-ntu $50,000 and that the Dominion subsidv, votes from the
other municipalities and private
subscriptions would eoinplcti
the required ulilount.
A. B. Woods, general manage!
ol the V. W. & Y. Kailway Co.,
observed thut his position was
somewhat peculiar, as the com
pany represented bv Nine .Mi
Naughl was sec-king In acquire
privileges now owned bv his
company, ll was a mistake to
suppose   thai   the   V. \\. \  \
Ry. was oppoaed to the constriction ol a bridge across the
Second Nurrows on a co-operative basis. Ills company wen
large properly owners on the
north short and strongly desired the railway connection. His
COtttpany hud always expressed
themselves as desiring to work
with the municipalities to secure not only a railway bridge,
bul u bridge for pedestrian und
vehicular trallic. A railwa)
bridge by itsell would be a mis-
tttke. His coinpanv had a sul>-
sidy ol 1)00,000 Irom the Dominion Government and it was
desirable lhat that subsidy be
made available. In order to do
thus it was necessary that tin
bridge should be built by the
V. W. tk V. Kuilwuy Company.
His compauy hud ollered to
turn the bridge over to a holding company, in which the mu
nicipalilies would be represent
ed. The railway, however,
would have to control the
bridge in order lo make good
thc claim on the Dominion
grant. Ills railwa) had been
In large expense in the mutter
ol plans, soundings, surveys,
und they could start operations
ivilliin one month. Their plans
had been approved by the Ottawa authorities.
lu reply to an inquiry Irom
Keeve McNaught us lo liow long
his company had been planum,
to build the bridge, Mi Woods
was not prepared to slate the
ex.ut dates. The delay had
been caused ill the Inst itistuilu
in the ellori to make linancial
arrangements, and later bv tin
ellort to sei ure an .inaiigeiiu-nt
willi tho municipalities.
Lambert Hond asked il there
wus anything iu the rumor thai
lhe charier ol lhe V. W. I \
had been ollered lo other colli
panics. Mr. Woods staled that
during later vears the V. W. I
Y. had been approached by oihei
railway companies with a view
to co-operating lo build tin
bridge, bill williout result .un
nothing was now pending
Keeve Howsei "I l'liinl (ircv,
and Councillor Hill ol Burnaby,
declared their hearty colieur-
reiue in anv scliciiic that would
scenic the early building ol tin
bridge, but were unable tu state
just whal assist ance their municipalities would give.
Mavor May declared thai the
point hud Ik'111 reached w In i a
patience ceased to be a virtue,
and when it was absolutely in
ccssary thai the bridge should
be built, lie lully endorsed the
idea ol lo-opcralloli to build I
bridge under joint municipal
uml ml. They were already ou
tire rond to sun ess
lv liiini,in was oi opinion
that sliould the Dominion Uov-
erniiiciit luii to make the grant,
the property owners nl North
Vancouver would raise ,m .1

ooo among themselves, lie hun
self was prepared to buy shares
lo llu- amount ol Mumi, mid
there   wen-   others   wlm   Would
subecribe much larger sinus.
Jus. C, Kiitli declared lhat
the railway hud been talking
for years bill duing nothing, li
it did not have the backing, il
should let the new culilp.uiv step
ill and do the wo.k. It ii .is
unlair lo North Yantiniui thai

Tin* movement n north shore

Strengthening lor a sustained to-
UMiv in all classes ol property.
The real estate lirms all report
considci able difficulty in liiuuc-
lug owners to list their pTODSI
ly and likewise a persistent tendency to advance lhe price-   in
stead ol delivering tne propert)
when   negotiations  are  opened.
The remarkable activity in Hou-
levard lots was the striking
feature of lhe, market lule lasl
week. This property is now re-
solling ut advanced prices. Tin
present week has developed very
strong demand lor business property, many translers having
been made, so ihal the greatest
difficulty is now being experienced iu listing this duss of realty. Close in residential properly on the face of the hill is iu
strong demand with many sales
and prices show a marked upward tendency. Properties in
D. L. 273, 787, Nortli Lonsdale
and other outlying sections arc
meeting with lavor, and are selling rapidly. Acreage is in demand, the rapid advance ol
West Capilano realty being particularly noticeable. Lynn V alley holdings are very reticent as
10 transler and arc very popular
with buyers. The Nortli hhoie
is at present the Mecca ol the
real estate situation and gives
promise ol remaining such for
an extended period.
CANADA'S POPULATION
The third census ol all Canada since lotilederaiion, will be
taken next vear, and every indication points lo results whuh
exceed the most optimistic expectations. The census department ol the iederal government
has recently made an estimate
Ml the population of the Dominion al the piesc-nt time, wlinli
places llic lotal at 7,350,000.
The actual count at ihe ctu-
siis ol I40I was 3,371,315. I poll
ilus basis an additional gain 01
al-out 12,000 during the interim
between the present and the
date oi the approaching census,
will give an increase ol  2,000,-
000 inhabitants during the last
di 1.ule, or over 37 per Vein.
Not only is this many ttmc-s
greater than any percentage ol
grow tli experienced in any previous decade, but it is almost
equal on the percentage basis
to the combined increase of the
three decades Irolll 1S71 to lyoi
In 1N71, the. year in which the
lust census was taken, Canada
contained a total population ol
3,hKV57- '■ [**[ die population had Increased to ^334,810,
representing a growth ol his,-
553, »r approximately 11 M
cent. A great portion ol this
gain, however, was due to the
lact that Hritish Columbia,
Manitoba and Prince Edward
Island wile incorporated in the
confederation during that period, so that their population in-
1 ,ut was added to the previous
total. At thc ceifsus ol i8yt,
the total inhabitants of the Dominion reached 11833,339, •"' ''"*

FORESTRY COMMISSION
REPORT
Thc forestry commission has
presented a report to the government,covering certain phases
ol the timber interests oi the
province. This report is authoritative as far as it goes,but
is not exhaustive, inasmuch as
there yet remain important
features of the problem with reference lo which thc commissioners desire further time and
information, in order lo arrive
at definite informations.
The report recommends that
existing timber licenses lit made
renewable as long as there is
merchantable timber on the
limit, bnt that these renewals
should be made subject), to such
conditions as will enable tho
government to retain control ol
all rentals, license lees, royalties, and likewise ol the regulations governing the cutting ol
limber, so that any of these
may be amended at any time to
suit existing conditions.
The report further ritoin
mends that at any time when
the land i.s requested for actual
settlement purposes, thc holder
of the license may lie required
to   remove   the   merchantable
timber within a reasonable time!The
It is recommended that the
existing system ol lorest lire
protection be continued and ex-'
tended. The report foreshadows a recommendation favoring
the appointment of a department of forestry, and likewise
thc outlining ol a policy for the
administration ol the timber
resources ol the province which
are not yet alienated.

The following original poem, Irish from thc pen
ol William Beattie, bard ol the St. Andrew's and
Caledonian tociety of Toronto, was sent with the
compliment! of the author, to Mr. J. W. Balmain,
of lliis iiiy, a friend of many years:
JANUARY 25U1, 1910
Again Uie welcome natal nighl returns,
Which etirv ilime wilh loyal gladness hails,
The nations celebrate the birth ol Burns,
Their greeting waft to Scotland's hills and vales.
This ten hour tjen thousand festal boards
Unite in |H.-ans, crowning king of song
The hard who scattered from poetic hoards,
lick treasures which the ages shall prolong.
His u.ts the miiNe ol nature—chosen child;
Interpreter of secrets hid from men;
To whom revealed his wood-notes warbling wild,
Deep thoughts lorth issuing from his living pen.
N'o thing too small Do 'scape his ardent eye;
Tin- gowati meeting him in evil hour,
Tu sate thtlti now fof ever pasl his power.
The mouse whose home and store ill ruin lie;
And i'un the rough burr Ihistle in the field,
His patriotii ardor stirs, and lain
ls he the worthless, troublous weed lu shield;
For Scotland's sake the iiiiMciii shall remain.
His was the huart to feel—opprest with woe—
For queen or peasant sullenng lot severe—
The beauteous Mary—vii lim of her foe,
I-'ur whose unhappy (ate he drops a tear.
Thi' Birks o' Aberieldie yet are green,
Where he wi' lassie spent the lee-long dav;
The songs that glorified his bonnie Jean
I'lrumial bloom like flowers in merry May.
By winding Niths'sweet stream where oft he stiat'd
'To wait the eve or hail llu cheerful dawn,'
Where thro' each dell or dew-licsprinkled glade
He marked the timid hare ur gentle fawn.
His was tin- grateful heart lur kindness sfliuwn,
Helm ml™ ird well i.nh iimi In net nlciit,
The ini'iistrtl lor Gleiii.iiin did sadlt  moan,
Aiid lor his patron's death with tiais lament.
His M.itlnng satire rent the llimsv veil,
That nil hvpoirist its shelter threw;
With 111.nilt mighl all shams he did impale.
I'riliiiilcrs holding up to public view
His master hand struck cvtrv noli- that's found
Within ihe gamut ol the human heart;
And, plating on i.ith vibrant chord, he crowitvd
Himself the monarch of the lyric art.
He was our lonntrt's gltttest, grandest bard;
l-nt whiih he lived and nrrotl each glowing line—
The social song that all tin- world has heard—
The universal anthem Anld Lang Svne.
