W. E, l-'lnii.eili'lt. Secrctani
Vancouver Board uf Trade, wroti
thanking the Norlh Vancouver
Hoard of Trade Ior the energetic
manner in which it had taken hold
ol the work in connection with the
Grouse mountain trail. From all
accounts to hand it was assured
that a larger travel is anticipated
for this season than ever before,
The secretary stated that the
trail was in good condition.
D. li Diek stated that on his
recent trip to the States of Oregon
ami Washington, he was informed
that the Home telephone systems
were the ones used there—urban
and suburban. In the rural districts the farmers paid $30 to subscribe,, and 25 cents a month there*
alter. In the cities the system is
automatic, which allow millions ol
subscribers llie privileges ol talking to one another. Hut it would
not pay with less than 50,000 subscribers. Mr. Dick also thought
that the rural system would be the
best fur North Vancouver and submitted literature received. Regarding the electric lighting in
Tacoma it cost ***j.*j5 (or ten lights
flat rate, and the electricity was
generated by str,,,,, power.
The question of the lerry service was brought up, when Mr.
Scliullz said that lhe work bad
now passed out ol the hands ol
the committee and v.a J now up to
the municipal council.
Reeve Kealy said for the present
the question must lie quiet.
The matter ol  the proposed
bridge across the Second Narrows
brought up by Mr. Scbultz, who
suggested that the proprietory ol
approaching the provincial government on the matter should be discussed.
Keeve Kealy stated that on the
return ol Mr. Macpherson, M. P.
(rum Ottawa, the municipal coun
cil held a special meeting, at which
he was presenl, when the following
petition was drawn up, and the
municipalities of Burnaby, South
Vancouver and the City of Vancouver were asked lu endorse the
I nti) the Honorable, the Premier anil
Executive Council of the Province af Ihiiiih Columbia:
The/•ettlion of Ihe Recti and Council of Ihe Cor/ioralion of the
District of North I iincohver.
Hi Mm* Showetii   Referring t"
ibe memorial from your petitioners
to   your   honorable  council,  fur-
warded un last, as there
is now a practical assurance that
at an early date construction will
be commenced of a railrway bridge
across Burrard inlet ai the Second
narrows,   your   petitioners   again
earnestly approach you on the subject of having thai bridge made a
combined Irallic and railway bridge.
The attention ol your honorable
council is called to the  following
foc.ts, viz:
1. That local works and undertakings (such as a vehicular traffic
and loot bridge) are exclusively
provincial matters under the
British Nortli American Act, Section 93.    The traffic part ol this
undertaking cannot be spoken ol
as a work " for the general benefit
of Canada," hence it is a provincial work.
2. Should a bridge for railway
purposes only be erected at the
Second narrows, it will monopolize
the only available site acrosss
the narrows, and preclude the
possibility ol a getting a traffic
bridge, except' under conditions
that will involve a prohibitory outlay and be a prejudice to the navigation of the upper reaches of the
inlet, if constructed.
j. That resolutions have been
passed by the City Council of Vancouver, and the councils ol Burnaby and South Vancouver, urging
ih*- construction ol this as a joint
tnllic and railway bridge, and such
a bridge will be almost as valuable
to all these niiinicipalties as it will
be to North Vancouvei".
4. That the Nortli Vancouver
Board of Trade have petitioned
also in support of a joint bridge,
and the work is eagerly desired by
every citizen and elector of this
For these anil other reasons that
might be urged your petitioners
express the earnest hope that your
honorable council will agree either:
(d) To contribute to a railway
company undertaking lo build the
bridge, the sum of $250,000 for
the purpose nl assuring that it be
made a joint vehicular traffic and
railway bridge, or
(/') To take it up as a provincial
undertaking, as was done in the
case ol the Fraser river bridge
and allowing any railway company
the use ol it on caving tollage.
Your petitioners crave the
earliest possible attention to the
matter, and, as in duty bound, thev
will ever pray.
By order of the Council.
Arnoi.h E. Kealv, Keeve.
Ai.tx. Philip, C. M. C.
Mi. Scliullz moved, Mr. Murray
seconded, and it was resolved—
That the Executive ol the North
Vancouver Hoard ul Trade draft a
petition endorsing the action of
the council of North Vancouver
in petitioning the provincial government to assist in the construction of a joint traffic and railway
bridge across (he Second narrows,
and that said executive committee
draw the attention of the government to the importance ol the
early construction ol said bridge.

Hi- lather was n clerk in the
custom house, having graduated
Iiniii ,i position as sea captain on
account ol an excess ol caution
and a taste for penmanship. Later
the good man went into the pub
lishing business, backed by the
Episcopal church and issued Sunday school leaflets, sermons and
prayer books, ln lact, he liecame
the official printer ol the denomination. Wilh him was a man
named Applelon, who finally went
over to New York and started in
on his own account, founding the
linn uf 11 Appii'ien & Co., which
Im'," years thereafter was lo publish tn ihe world a book called,
" Progress nnd Poverty."
I'he worthy father ol Henrj
George wns a good churchman,
but not a business man. He
bought the things be ought not
and left unsold the things he
should have worked off. He dial
not know the value ol time, Oilier
people did things while he was
getting ready to commence to begin.
And so the whirligig of time sent
him hack to bis desk at the custom
house, on a salary so modest  that
it  ant poverty,   and  progress
