J. M. Heard, manager of the

W. B. Bunbury, ol the North
Vancouver Motor Boat Transportation Company, stated to the
council that his company had per
million from Messrs. Mahon, Mc-
Farland St Mahon to run a wharf
out from their property, just west
of Lonidale avenue wharf, and
that the west wing ol the present
lerry wharf interferes with their
boats making a proper landing
He wished to know if council could
assist Ihem in having the matter

that council had no connection
with the mailer, but that it should
be adjusted Iietween the owners ol
the property and Ihe ferry company.
Monthly accounts were ordered

now willing to accept $50,000 less,
there must be a lot in il for the city
council, if the sale went through.
He had carefully investigated and
had found that 110 provision had
heen made for any commission to
anyone, and, as far as he knew,
the ferry company would not accept less than $173,0110 at the present time.

was adopted.
Some ol the members were of
opinion thai the minutes of tin
leveral meetings ol the executive
committee should he read, in order
that the meeting might know what
resolutions had been considered,
and that the reasons for their rejection might he stated. The reading was finally deferred until the
next meeting.
The matter of securing the insertion ol the names of householders
at Moodyville in the list of voters
for school trustee was discussed
The city clerk had been given a
verbal opinion in thc office of the
city solicitor, to the effect that this
could be done only liy tlieir taking
the declaration appearing in the
municipal clauses act, which would
have had to he done in October
last, but it was thought that there
yet remained a method of securing
■their insertion by the court ol n
vision.    The mailer was laid over.
The appointment ol the associ
ation'a candidates at the civic dec*
tians was then proceeded with.
The method of  appointment was
explained to be by ballot, as follows : "All candidates whose total
vote does not equal the vote received hy the candidate standing
sixth on the list shall drop out,and
this process shall continue until
there are seven candidates left,
when a final ballot for six men
shall he taken."
The different candidates for the
several civic offices were then given opportunity to address the meeting
Alderman W.H. May, candidate
for ths mayoralty, stated that he
had been before the public of
North Vancouver for fifteen years
continuously, and it was a source
of pride and satisfaction to him
lhat, after this long service, he
should be honored by his fellow
citizens by being elected their candidate (or the position of mayor of
the ciiy of North Vancouver. He
was in favor of the resolution as to
the sewage system. It should be
proceeded with without delay, and
those directly or indirectly benefitted should pay a tax in proportion
as they are benefitted. He referred to the operations elsewhere of
those who dishonestly possessed
themselves of public funds, and
declared the present need of men
of character and integrity in public
office, who would not give way to
the passion of greed. Personally
he had always kept free from it.
No one could assert that he everj
supported any measure for personal gain during his fourteen years of.
office. He therefore lelt that he
could confidently appeal to the
electors for their support as candidate for mayor.
R. C. He*- was in lavor of a
clean, economical and progressive
system of government and, if chosen and elected,would do his shaie
toward this end.
F. W. Fowler considered the
sewage system a vital issue, ; 1
health was the first consideration
II" was in favor of the city taking
over the city wharf at once and
improving it, aa he was -misdeal
lhat nothing could be expected
from the ferry company. He na*

he done as cheap and as well, but
not otherwise.
W. A. Gibson .considered that
the council should be run as a man
runs his own business. He had
had experience in the matter of
grading and removing earth, and
thought that his knowledge could
be of some use to the city. He
was prepared to try to do as well
for the ratepayers as he would do
for himself.
W. C. Gladwin would be prepared lo do all he could to forward
the interests of the city and to
carry out the association's pro
gramme. He was of opinion that
there were many expenses that
could bc cut down and lhat .con-
oinv ought tu be practiced.
C. F. Jackson declared his adherence to the resolutions ol the
association He considered that
to have placed in one's keeping the
money, health, and moral welfare
of his fellow citizens was a high
honor and entailed grave responsibilities. He considered the credit ol the city the (oundation of
prosperity, and should the programme prove too expensive, he
wou'd vote for delay. He would
not bind himself hy pledges, but
would use liis best judgment.
Many temptations would confront
civic aldermen in thc immediate
future, and men were required
whose judgment would not he diverted by money or other considerations. Proper management
would render this city one of the
finest residential suburbs on the
William McNeish had had no
experience in civic government,
hut he had made a success of business, and now had leisure to devote
to the service of his fellow citizens.
He was in favor of taking over the
whrrf and of submitting a bylaw
I to raise money to put in a sewage
j system. On public works the (ore-
man should be given absolute control of the men. and then thc foreman should be held strictly responsible for the work.
Alexander Philip had no personal ends to promote, but in response to many requests was willing to be of service to the ratepayers. In civic matters the will of
the people must prevail. He was
in accord with the resolutions of
the association.   He had opposed
the ferry purchase bylaw when sub
mitted, and was still nl opinion
that purchase on that basis would
be injudicious. The preservation
of the credit of the city was necessary, as it is the city s primary
asset. The sale of 5 per cent bonds
at 89 was not at all a satisfactory
showing, and he felt that such
bonds should bring 100 cents.
W. D. Reeves regretted that
pressure ol duties elsewhere rendered it impossible for bin' to accept candidature, and he asked
leave to retire.
S. D. Schultz was concious that
the position ol alderman was one
of responsibility and trust. It was
similar to that of a director of a
company. It involved close application and attention to detail. He
endorsed the resolutions in general, reserving the privilege of independent judgment as circumstances may dictate. He did not consider that the city had received adequate returns for the expenditure
on roads. The ferry question involved grave difficulties. ft appeared lhat the provinces had jurisdiction over waters within their
bounds, in a certain way. Nevertheless he thought that the ferry-
agreement could be attacked and
that the city could get possession
of the service. The ferries act
provides that when a ferry license
is to lie granted, it shall be put up
to public competition; it shall be
gazetted, and it shall not exceed a
term of five years. He had not
been able to find any evidence that
the present ferry license was ever
put up to public competition, or
that it was ever gazetted, and it
was written (or thirty years. The
ratepayers should do all that they
could to i'inl the monopoly. A
councilloi should likewise endeavor to make the environment as
high as possible and to raiie the
citizenship to the highest point.
H. W. Young was a party to the
resolutions, and therefore in favor
ol them, although circumstances
mny lender il ailnsahle to modify
them somewhat. He thought that
hasty action OB important issues
should be avoided, and that opportunity should be given the ratepayers' association to express an
opinion on such before council
takes final action.
Alderman A. E. Crickmay had
not had time In full) consider the
resolutions, but would give them
consideration and use bit nest discretion. Ferry niatleis aud 3rd
street he hoped to discuss at a
public meeting later. lie was in
favcr of forcing the si,nation with
regard to ferry matters. As soon
as possible an culm sewage system should be planned, the mains
to be constructed out of the general funds, and the side lines by local
improvement. He had been In
favor of the city making a 20 foot
roadway out of general funds, but
this, with the laying ol watei pipes,
would cost the city probably
$1,000,000 in fifteen years. He
was in favor of street building by
local improvement. In reply to a
question, Aid. Crickmay stated
that steps had been laken to cancel the ferry license.
The lollowing new members were
added to the roll: Dr. Verner, T.
Prime and G. T. Gilpin,
Thc selection of candidates was
then proceeded with, and three
ballots weie taken, the vote for
each candidate on each ballot be

The definition of a householder,
which is incorporated in the
amendments to the municipal elections act passed at the last session
of the legislature, will have the effect of considerably restricting the
number of those who are entitled
to vote under this clause, until
such time as the niumcipaliticscon-
cemed enact remedial legislation.
The definition of a householder,
previous to the amendment, read
as lollows:—"Householder shall

who h*'bis a dwelling, tenement,
hotel or boardinghouse, or any
portion of a dwelling, tenement,
hotel or boardinghouse, who has
piid directly to the municipality

two dollars, during the current
The definition under the new
clause reads as follows "Householder shall exteud to and include any person, of the full age ol
tin il\ one years, who occupies a
dwelling, tenement,hotel or boardinghouse, or any portion of a
dwellinghouse, tenement, hotel or
boardinghouse. who has been resident in the municipality from the
first day of January ol the current
year, and who shall (unless exempted by tbe provisions oi the
proviso at the end of sub-section
117, of section 50, of chapter 32,
of the statutes of 1906, being the
municipal clauses act) have paid
directly to the municipality all
rates, taxes or assessments which
are not chargeable on land, which
rates, taxes or assessments,so paid,
shall amount to not less than two
dollars, due to the municipality
for the currant year, other than
water rates or taxes, or license fees
for dogs."

passing of the necessary bylaw by
the city council, or hy the ainein!
ment of   the municipal clauses act
as may be required.    The appoint
ment ol a commission to thorough
ly revise the municipal clauses act
has been  mooted, and this would
doubtless overcome   the difficulty,
but as the number of citizens affec
ted will be very much   larger next
year, assurance   should be   forth
coming that a remedy will be found,
The information which was first
conveyed to the public by The
Exrm'.ss, in last week's issue, that
the G.T.P. intends building a line
11 Burrard Inlet via the Seymour,
has created a great deal of interest
locallv.and has likewise been wide
ly copied bv leading dailies. To
be recognized as the leading medi
um for the dissemination of news
with reference to the north shore
of Burrard lnb-t and its residents,
is what the publishers believe to
be the rightful heritage of Thk Ex
tWS, and is the goal toward which
their efforts are constantly direct
ed. The many kind expressions
of appreciation with regard to the
newsy nature o' the sheet, which
are being received, lead to the con
elusion that those oflorta are prov
ing successful, and that Thk Kx
I'mss stands today in undisputed
supremacy, as the exponent of all
that touches the interests of the
constituency which it serves. In
this connection the publishers wish
to express their high appreciation
of the kindly interest constantly
manifested by the citizens in the
paper, by continually offering sug
gestions and giving information
that materially assists iu idling the
news columns with good live news,
and also in sustaining and improving the general tone ol the paper.
To confirm and to extend these
cordial relationships and to avail
themselves of every expedient
which will increase the usefulness
of '1 iik BtftMl to Noith Vancouver citv and district, arc purposes
wlm h the publishers will keep
constantly in view in the management of the paper

as Prime, J. F. Smith, R H. Tarn,
H. Holland and T. Lawrence, of
whom invitations to attend and tickets may be secured. Western
Rose lodge continues to have most
gratifying success, initiations being
on the tapis at every meeting, and
the lodge bids fair to become the
largest and most influential of any
order in Norlh Vancouver.

Rich and A. Earle Waghorne and
a recitation hy Miss Minnie Hall.
The address by the lecturer was of
C very high order, dealing in a
clear and forceful manner with

Cor. Seymour b Pender its., Vancouver THE EXPRESS, NORTH VANCOUVER, B. C.
• W. Thomas, who applied at a recent session of the city council for
a gas franchise for North Vancouver, is an expert in the gas business and an old time resident of
Vancouver, where he has been
with the gas company for twenty
years. He is operating extensively in the formation of gas companies, having formed two companies already, one of which has
just bought out the old gas company at New Westminster, and the
other of which has done likewise
at Nauaiino. He has associated
with him United States capitalists,
who have any required amount ol
money once the proposition presented commends itself to them as
a good investment. The representative of The Exprkss was
shown a telegram signed by the
parties whom Mr. Thomas represents, stating positively their
readiness to proceed should matters develop satisfactorily in this
ln enlarging upon the possibilities of cheap gas, Mr. Thomas
stated it would be Ihe intention of
the North Vancouver Light, Heat
St Gas Company to bring the gas
within thi reach of all, at a price
thai will must lavorably compete
with solid fuel, and at the same
time give the householder an opportunity to obt in this very necessary commodity.
li was the intention of the company to not only provide cheap g<s
for the customer, hut also a handsome return for the investor. To
make sure ol this, it is-the intention of the company to adopt the
latest methods in the generation of
gas, both in design and operation,
the practice ol horizontal retorts as
in general use will not be seen in
the plant of the North Vancouver
Gas Improvement Company. Instead ol throwing coal into lum
zonial retorts and periodically
pulling the coke out with long
rakes , wlm h practice can be seen
tht'iiigimut B.C. today), the vertical retort will he used, in the operation ol which the charging and
discharging is performed automatically, thus effecting a saving of at
ol at least 50 per cent in cost ol
labor. It also produces the maximum viel.l id gas fur a minimum
cost; no napthalene, reduction nl
tulpliiit compounds, superior tar,
increased ammonia; alio living 40
per cent ol ground space.
Another innovation entering into
tha manufacture of the gat, 11 the
production ol heat for the carbonization ol coal from an outside
source, viz: watte wood producti
ind coal wiste, thereby savir.g the
whole of the residual coke for sale,
instead of, 11 at present, in B.C.,
using from 4010 70 percent of the
coke produced for luel purposes.
The crude cold tar will also be distilled, giving refined cold tir, ere
oiote, pitch, etc. Amniomical
liquot, now running to wule in
every gas works in B.C., will be
concentrated and manufactured into a marketable product.
The manufacturing lite would be
of ample size ind favorably situated lor the handling ol raw material, alio coke, tar, ammonia, etc.
The introduction of industrial
gai means more to Ihe city than is
at present realized by the citizens.
It must not, however, he associated with the oidinary town gas
manufactured (rom coal and sup-
plied hy the ordinary methodi.
In StiHordihire, England, producer gas from coal mine watte it
manufactured by the Mond pro-
cess, ind distributed over in irea
ol 30 square miles, by means of 4N
inch gas mams, giving cheap heat
and power to all kindi ol indtii
tries located there II ii proposed
later to lake up Ihii branch ol the
buiineii, liying down a aeparate
line ol large gai maim, thereby
offering the greatest inducement
lor industries ol ill kin.li Cheip
power ii the villi factor in ill industrial enterprisei, thi first ind
most important consideration
Mr. Thomas lurther remarked
thit although North Vincouver
must (rom iti lituition ind nit-
ural facilities, become 1 Urge man
ulicturing centre, the idvent of
cheip power gas will advance the
city'i position by at lent ten yein,
placing it immediately on a par
with the leading manufacturing
centni ol lhe United States and
Eastern Canada, affording employment for numben ol our own
■rtizans who are at present being
educatid and trained at the expense ol tha ciry and province, only
to give the benefit of their citizen*
ship and ibilitiei to other localities.
Canada's Forttti
by 1 he Exp ess this week from the
Canadian Forestry Association,
goes to show how imperative is the
necessity that every precaution be
laken to conserve the timber resources o( the dominion: Eight
hundred million acres used to be
accepted as the area of that part of
Canada covered hy forests; two
hundred million acres is the estimate of the commercially valuable
forests as given by Dr, B. E. Fern-
ow, head of the faculty of forestry
at the university of Toronto; one
hundred million acres, Dr. Judson
F. Clark, of Vancouver, thinks,
would cover the "actual cutting
area, that is, the area on which are
lound lorests of commercial value,
as measured by present-day logging standards," this figure including the areas bearing timber suitable for pulpwood or saw-timber.
Both Dr. Femow and Dr. Clark
are well known authorities on forestry subjects. The former is the
author of the well-known work,
"The Economics of Forestry,"
which Is practically the only work
in English treating comprehensively this aspect of lhe subject. Dr.
Clark has had extended experience
in forest work in connection with
the U.S. forest service, and later
as forester (0 the province of Ontario, a position which he resigned
to go into private business in British Columbia, where he has had
several years' experience of work
in the woods there.
For a long time the people o(
Canada were quietly and complacently congratulating themselves
that their timber supply was "inexhaustible." Estimates like the
abcve.gavcn by men who can speak
with authority on the subject, must
wake them up to the necessity, not
only ol guarding from fire and other
enemies the lorests they now have,
but of introducing rational forestry
management so as to increase the
growth ol he forests and get from
them the largest amount of timber
they are capable of producing.
Ferry Items
The Motor Boat Transportation
Company has practically completed arrangements with the owners
of a boat ol large tonnage whereby
they will be able, if necessary, to
carry Ireighl, teams, etc., in connection with their ferry service.
The North Vancouver Ferry St
Power Company have notified tlie
city that the Lonsdale avenu**
wharf is in need of repairs, and
have further intimated that unlets
the city is prepared to renew the
lease of the wharf, the city should
repair the wharl. At any rate that
the city should either renew the
lease or take over the wharf.
Ihe west wing of the Lonsdale
avenue wharl, it is stated by the
new (erry company,protrudes some
distance beyond the street line,
over upon the waterlronlage of the
lot of Mahon, M, Fat I am! St Mahon, (rom whom the motor boat
company are renting landing privileges, and interferes with the landing ol the motor boats. ihey
state steps are being taken to have
the difficulty remedied.
Messrs. Bunbury and Hraim, of
the North Vancouver Motor Boat
Transportation Company, are in
receipt ol a letter from Messrs.
Divii, Marshall & MacNeill, solicitors lor the North Vancnuver Ferry St Power Company, Limited,
alleging that the ferry service bus*
taiued by them il cirried on contrary to the ferries act and advising them that unless lhe service il
discontinued iction-al-law will be
taken. The recipients of the letter declare their intention ol allowing the matter to tike ill course
