from the company.
The treasurer was requested to
provide the chairman ol each com

time showing the amount appropriated to his department for the

in collecting taxes.
Thc matter ol the petition for a
sub-postoflice on Lonsdale avenue
north was fully discussed and it
was decided that the present needs
of the city would be better served
by a free delivery and postoffice
boxes distributed throughout the
city, and the council intends to petition the postoffice authorities to
that effect. Aid. Smith and Irwin
were appointed a committee to
prepare the petition.
The committee appointed to confer with the district council as to
the arrangement ol financial obligations, reported that they had
met the council and that a proposition had been made which would
be satisfactory to all parties. It
would be known in a few days
whether the plan would be acceptable to the bank.

was deferred to await the outcome
of present negotiations with the
district council and the bank.

and a tiger for the Bag. Mayor
Kealy followed in a neat speech,
inspired by the immediate item of
the programme. He observed
that it was characteristic of the
Union lack to be at the top. That
Hag had always shown a marked
tendency to be supreme on land
and sea. F'ollowing in the same
vein he relerred to Canada as being the greatest colony ol Great
Britain and at the top in that respect. He counselled the boys
and girls to strive through life for
the highest and best attainment in
every respect. As for North Vancouver city.she would not bc satisfied with becoming anything short
of the largest and wealthiest and
greatest city that it was possible to
create out ol her enviable location
and advantages.
Geo. H. Morden, ol Tun Excress,
in discussing the making of the
flag, observed that while the flag
floating at the masthead was but a
piece of cotton, woven in a few
moments, yet that flag had been
centuries in the making. It was
made not of cotton but ol the
brain and brawn and the blood of
the best specimens of Ihe best
race ol men that the worltl had
ever seen. As the children looked
at it from day to day, they should
bear in mind that it stands hu
British liberty,British institutions,
for the highest and best in nationhood today. The children could
honor the flag by working industriously to fit themselves in the
besl possible manner Ior the discharge of the duties of eitizt nship
and all the responsibilities of practical lile.
Aid. Irwin declared that no
colony more fittingly floated the
Union Jack than did Canada Her
people are loyal citizens ol the
British Empire. Ihere was no

The meeting of local Conservatives, held on Tuesday evening lor
organization purposes, of highly
satisfactory nature from a party
standpoint. The attendance was
excellent, notwithstanding several
counter attractions, and under the
guidance of Ihe chairman, A. R.
Steacey, business was transacted
xpeditiously. The proceedings
throughout were marked by the
utmost harmony and enthusiasm.
The membership roll was sub-
milled lor signatures and many new
names were added, including several local residents from the Old

The new Seymour creek bridge, an illustratino of which has been kindly loaned The ExrRF.ss by
the B. C. Mining Exchange, was designed by Donald Cameron, engineer ol the district municipality ol
North Vancouver. The bridge is of the high truss order and will have a span o( 140 feet. The roadway
will be lb feet iu width and the height to the girders will be 17'; feet. Thc roadway will be II feet above

building ol the superstructure has been awarded the M. L. Patterson Co., o( Denver, for whom Langley
& Williams, Vancouver, are local agents.
Flag Raising at the School
A goodly company of citizens
gathered at Chesterfield avenue
school on Monday alternoon, to
participate in what proved to be a
junction ol an exceptionally enjoyable nature. The occasion was
the first raising of the new flag
given the school by the education
department. Chairman Steacey
and the trustee board are to be
congratulated on the appropriate*
ne u and the success ol the proceedings. Thc opportunity to impress elevating and useful lessons
on the minds ol the children was
used by the respective speakers to
the best advanlage.while lhe school
children performed their part oi
thc programme with an efficiency
and an enthusiasm which was
most creditable to both themselves
and their teachers.
The programme was opened by
Chairman Steacey, in a lew well
chosen remarks with reference to
the occasion of the gathering. He
then called upon Kev. J. D. Gillam, who briefly sketched the component features of the British flag
and concluded an apt address hy
observing that the flag stood (or
liberty, justice and religion. The
raising of the flag followed. Thc
honor ol hoisting the ensign had
been decided at the morning session of the school by a popular
vote ol the children, Clara Fogg
and Howard Anih isun being
chosen. As the flag unfurled to
the breeze the children sang "Run
Up the Union Jack, Boys," at the
conclusion ol which the entire
gathering gave three rousing cheers

The reciting ol "The I'mou
Jack," at this juncture, by Doris
Anders, was one ol the most stirring items of the programme.
Alexander Philip, in addressing
the assembly, took occasion to
present to the successful division
the flag given by the horticultural
society as a prize for thc best collection ol pressed flowers at thc
recent exhibition. The society
magnanimously presented a flag to
each ol the other divisions of the
school as well. In further speaking to the children, Mr. Philip enlarged effectively on five "K's,"
namely, be eager, be earnest, be
energetic, bc exemplary, and then
you will have a right to expect
prosperity and success for this
life to come.
Rule Britannia was then sung by
Jessie Hunter, Gertrude Coleman,
Gracie Hunter and Lt/./.ie Johan*
son, thc entire school joining in
thc chorus. Alter three hearty
cheers lor Chairman Steacey, and
also lor the teachers, the meeting
was dismissed by singing "God
Save thc King."
close of the general meeting, the
campaign committee convened.
Subcommittees were appointed
and as far as possible every detail
was arranged for a thorough and
and energetic campaign. The

occupied by Kingsford Smith was
authorized and will be fitted up as
permanent local headquarters. W.
D. Duke will be manager at the
committee rooms, where he will be

J. A. McMillan has received

Elmer Jones and F. C. Wade preceded the speaker of the evening,
in short, pointed addresses. Mr.
Mclnnes was given a hearty reception and, alter a preliminary statement, eulogizing Sir Wilfrid Laurier and the Liberal administration,
he proceeded at once to discuss
Asiatic exclusion, contending that
it was a national question,and that
a man going to Ottawa today
would be able to accomplish much
more than had been possible when

Full particulars of the ferry proposition, made to the district council at its last session, will be lound
in the letter which appears elsewhere in this issue of Tin. Ex-
1'RKss. Ou the lace of it, the proposition is one that will inspire
confidence upon the part ol the
public. The source whence it
emanates gives positive assurance
that what its promoters propose,
they are in position to execute as
to the service itself, while the energetic and straightforward manner
in which they have proceeded, is
at once good and sufficient proof
ol their bona fides.
Of the desirability ol such a
Ierry service Irom the viewpoint of
North Vancouver city and district
there cannot well be any serious
difference of opinion. The possibilities ol Capilano from a residential point of view are well nigh
limitless, The location is excellent, the view is superb, the surroundings are delightful, the climatic conditions are of the best,
even in our favored part of thc
province. With convenient aud
well appointed means ol access
there is every reason to conclude
that Capilano will become proliab
ly the choicest of all cliom ifflfli-
dential sections tributary to Burrard Inlet.
The scenic attractions of the
lamed Capilano valley are such
that the providing ol a ferry service according accommodation on
a par with that to which tourists
are accustomed by railway and
steamship, will greatly increase
the tourist travel to the canyon,
and as this traffic has an aptitude
lor alternate routes, it is tea .una
ble to conclude that it will journey
via the city ol North Vancouver,
either going or coming. The effective advertisement thus gained
by city and district will travel lar
and cannot but return in very tang
ible results sooner or later.
If the city ol North Vancouver
is to overtake her opportunities
and to attain to that proud position to which her enviable location entitles her, then all lines ol
distinction as between city and
district must be obliterated to the
last possible extent in tin thinking
and acting of hrr citizens. The
line that marks out upon the
ground the division of the city
Irom the district,has al>solut.lv 110
existence whatevet in the realm of
the interests of tin community 00
the north side ol Hurrard Inlet.
Those interests are one and indivi
siblc. The highest prosperity ol
every portion of thfl north shore
will bc most ctlei lively promoted
by thc advancement ol the entire
district well abreast Irom Eagle
harbor to Seymour creek. Any
development that bring!advantage
to any portion ol tin I tint must
ol necessity conler corresponding
benefits upon every portion thereof.
Any community such as that
which is destined to occupy tin-
territory known as North Vanum-
ver.lying along an extended waterfront and necessarily restricted as
to depth ol area, will naturally
create lor itsell in the course of
time a focal point, about which Ils
interests will centre ami from
which, in the mam, its operations
will be controlled. At this central
point will bc lound the chief financial, educational, commercial, industrial, social, and civic institutions. The city ol North Vancouver occupies that position geo
graphically, which practically pla
ccs her in the centre ol the distrii I
in which she is located She further finds hersell an incorporated
city, etpiipped with every facility
lor exerting a controlling influence
upon the growth of the surrounding territory, in the formative
stages of the development of that
It is inanifestK wise that the city
should adopt I broad and statesmanlike policy; that she should
lend every assistance to the most
rapid development ol both extremes and every portion of the
district in which she is placed,antl,
at the same tune, so direct the
course oi events that, with the
growth of population and thfl development along all lines of the
district lying beyond hflt immediate bounds, thfl closest possible relationships ate established and
maintained therewith, thus ensuring for Inrself possession of that
which is her rightful heritage, viz.,
the proud" position of the centre ol
tin* financial, educational, commercial, industrial, social,religious
and 1 ivie life ol the populous and
wealthy community which is destined to grace the north shore of
Burrard Inlet. This can be done
—indeed, will be done—but to do
it will require broad niitideilness,
careful planning, constant vigilance ami 11 leeleu energy.
This new ferry proposition is
one ol the many expedients which
are bound to be evolved in the
process of development of affairs.
That it would prove ol very great
advantage to Capilano is undeniable, lis feasibility is the only
point at issue. With regard to the
building and operation of (he boats
that matter is effectively and favor-
orably disposed of by thfl personnel of the promoters. The route
chosen is a short one and at the
same time avoids the necessity of
passing into or through the First
Narrows. The advisability ol allowing ferry traffic across the travelled path of lhe extensive shipping that is bound to develop at
this point in the future has evidently been given adequate consi
deration by the department of ma
rine ami fisheries, as they have already given their assent to the
granting of the franchise. The
chief obstacle to the consummation of the plan lies in the fact
that it contemplates the extension
of thc tramline through a portion
of Stanley Park, an innovation
which the electorate ol Vancouver
has so far refused to sanction. It
remains to be seen whether that
electorate   can   be     induced    to
change its mind, or failing this,
whether any means can be found
of carrying the plan to execution
without the formal sanction of that
electorate. The entire propositi™
is one of exceptional moment, aud
developments will doubtless be
watched by North Vancouver residents with keen interest.
Mr. and Mis. E. McMillan have
the heartfelt sympathy of the entire
community in the bereavement
which they sustained last week, in
the sad accident resulting in the
death of their little daughter, two
years ol age. The funeral was held
Sunday afternoon.

Harry Mitchell, local manager. THE EXPRESS, NORTH VANCOUVER, B. C.
Terminal Steamship Co., Ltd.,
Vancouver, Sept. 8, 1908
Mr. May, the  Reeve and iCounc 1
0 the Municipality and the Cny
of North Vancouver 1
Dear Sir,—It is my intention to
build and operate an up-to-date
ferry boat to cross Ihe first narrows
ol Hurrard Inlet as soon as the
necessary arrangements can I e
made with the B, C. Electric Ry.
Co., and the park commissioners
of the city of Vancouver.
1 enclose herewith a plan showing the proposed route crossing
Stanley park at a very necessary
point, even il there never was a
ferry across Hurrard Inlet. The
proposed line ol tramway will
cross Coal Harbor just west of the
present bridge, following close to
the water pipe line, curving around
the hear pits and swinging into the
narrows side close to where the
Indian house and garden is now
located, and the tram and ferry
depot will be inside of the park
road as shewn on plan, then lore
the tram line will not cross the
main park road at any point.
This is a much needed car service, apart as I said before, from
the ferry scheme, as it will allow
the old and very young people to
cross the park without walking
such a great distance; then North
Vancouver with a tram line to the
proposed lerry could he reached as
quickly from the city of Vancouver,
as 1 might say, Grandview, Fair-
view, Mount Pleasant, Kitsalino,
or any other bordering on the city
limits oi Vancouver; and I am
willing to make an agreement with
property owners of your district to
build an up-to-date double-ended
ferry boat, with sufficient power to
cross from one side of the narrows
to lhe other side in five minutes. I might further state that
the proposed boat will have a
license to carry not less than three
hundred passengers as well as
light rigs, hacks, automobiles; all
heavy drays such as not allowed on
the park road, can go by the present Ierry boat to Nortli Vancouver.
The pmpieed landing lor the
ferry on the north shore ol Burrard
Iulet will be directly across from
the ferry landing on the park side
and that will bring the tram line
close to the east line ol the Capi
lano Indian reserve on Robert
Ward & Co.'a property, which
company have already notified me
that as soon as the necessary facilities are obtained they are quite
ready lo arrange ferry landing and
approach to same.
There is no question in the
minds of many property owners in
the 1 ilv and municipality of North
Vancouver that in a thort time the
tram line will bc extended as lar
west as liagle 11.11 bui, terminus ol
Keith mad in Howe Sound, inasmuch as there it no comparison
with the locations of residential
purposes to that ol Point Grey, at
the north shore has better beaches
and clearer water (or summer resorts, and the distance to the point
mentioned is not greater than that
to Point Grey.
It is not necessary to state that
il this much needed tram and ferry
service is put in operation it will
be the means of settling up this
most beautilul district both east
and west of the lerry landing, and
with extensions ol tram lines to the
Capilano canyon, there will be one
ol the finest places on the coast to
direct tourists and others to, for a
dav's outing or even a lew hours.
It might be said that the ferry
scheme is not feasible across the
narrows on account o( thc strong
current. This, however, is not
true, as on either side where the
proposed landings are to be, there
ii no more current than at Ihe
present wharl and landing in
North Vancouver, and I might aay
furthermore, there ii lets danger
in crossing the narrows in log and
darkneii on account of ihere being
much less traffic than there ii in
the harbor.
When permiision ii granted to
allow a tramline to cross Stanley
Park, I am prepared at once to
enter into a suitable agreement
with your council and other property ownen to build and operate
the lerry boat in a businesslike
I have already applied to the
marine and fisheries department
for a charier to operate the said
lerry, ind have received reply by
letter that there will be no objections to my operating a lerry in
these waters.
I hope you will give your utmost
consideration to the proposed lerry and Iram extensions and persu
ade all property owners to wait on
the Park Commissioners and B. C.
