To THI Special Audit Committi!
Citv or North Vancouver, B.C.
Io accordance with your instructions we have investigated the
books and accounts of the City of
North Vancouver, dealing more
specially with the transactions as
between the city and municipality
it the date ol incorporation, also
wilh lhe income and expenditure
to Diceuiber 31st, 11)07.
Un examining the books we
(omul it advisable to revise the accounts as published at December
31st, and attach hereto for your
approval the following accounts at
General balance sheet (pro forma) as nt December 31st, 1907.
Schedu'e "A" Income and Kx-
penditure account, June ist, 1907
lo December 3ist, 1907.
Schedule '*B'' Waterworks Revenue account, June 1st, 1907 to
Decenibei 3ISI, 1907.
Schedule "C" Valuation of
Streets and Kii.ul** as taken over
by the cit, al d ite ul incorporation.
Schedule "D" Sundiy Properties, (corporation asset!.)
Schedule "E" Sundry Creditors
at December 31st, 1907.
We have made no entries in the
civic bunks, but have complete
dialis of all entries which we consider essential to bring lhe books
into agreement with our accounts
submitted herewith, and il the
same are adopt, d, we shall i-eg'ad
to give all the required information
or red ive authority to superintend
the necessary adjustments.
The city officials published a
statement January 6th, 1908, containing a cash account and balance j
per annum, and it is for the council to determine whether it is their
intention to include the interest
and sinking fund necessary for the
payment of waterworks bonds in
their schedule of taxation under
the heading of "General loan
rate," or whether the loss, if any,
on the operating of the waterworks
will be charged and paid out of
the general rate.
We have divided the balance
sheet into two portions, the first
portion dealing with capital ,1 sits
and liabilities, and the second portion dealing with current assets
and liabilities, by which you will
see that we include in the capital
liabilities the sum of (16,181.97
being an amount expended bv the
city on permanent improvements
between June ist anil December
31st, 1907, which amount they
have borrowed from the current
assets and which we presume will
be refunded when the bonds of
(17,000.00 authorized under bylaw
3a are sold. The total capital expenditure was (28,807.88.
lhe difference between this and
the above-mentioned (16,162.97
wai provided by the conversion ol
uiuid capital assets into permanent improvements.
The assets do ot include the
sum ol (4,625.43 w ich was spent
by the board of school trustees in
addition to school buildings. We
understand that up to the present
no itepi hive been tiken by the
city to have the lands and schools
transferred from the provincial
government lo the city, although
the city is spending money on property, the rights to which are still
vested in the government.
Included among the civic assets

December 31st, 1907, copy ol |j,JJIfij, being low M operating
which 11 attached,-muibly intend- the waterworki incurred-by the

"The districi municipalities shall, | to May 31st, 1907, and which it
on or belore the second Monday, December 31st, 1907 was with cer-
in January publish or post up on tain other items written ofl to rev-
tile door of the council chamber a jenue account in thc City of Nortli
balance sheet showing tbe assets
ind liabilities of the corporition lo
the jim December immediately
previous to luch publication, and
also a statement showing the re
ceipti of revenue ind expenditure
from Ue ut January to 31st December" but, iindei Sec. 6] "In
city municipalities, councils may
each yeir publish in pamphlet
lorm, for the information of ratepayer!, a statement of receipt! ind
expenditure giving n (ull particular! ai poanble to enable the
financial position oi the corpora-
lion lo be understood."
Heading thii paragraph in conjunction with Sec. 139,which stales
"The ralat ahall be levied (or all
•uini neceiaary fur the lawfi.l pur*
posei of tha municipality for such
year" it seems to 111 (hit the legislative assembly intend city muni-
cipalitiei lo publish 1 llitement
showing the actual revenue and
expenditure ol the city ind not in
iccount which would be misleading
il only the actual caah receipts ind
iish piymenli were exhibited. We
hive therefore prepned in iccount
(stlirilulr "A") contiining the
whole revenue from taxation and
other ioiimi's applicable to the
period, irreipective of whether it
hid been collected or otherwiie, 11
only by thii method cm it he determined whether lhe current expenditure hu exceeded the assess
ment bylaw.
While particularizing with this
iccount, we would dnw the Com

mayor ind aldermen; the bylaw
(or inch Ii iiuiiii -latum wii not
paiscd until December 151I1, 1907,
ind it will be (or Ihe Solicitor to
Ihe city to determine whether such
bylaw cm be midc retroactive.
The hoard of school truiteci

The witerworks iccounti disclose 1 loss on the seven months
opeutinf of (922 86 ai per idled-
Vancouver booki. This amount
we take exception to as being an
asset, and for the purpose ol our
accounts we have ignored it. The
loss was apparently spread over a
period of three years and arose
Irom the interest on waterworks
debentures being charged against
the account, and if it was the intention to write ofl the loss, it
should have been done annually by
the municipality, and not transferred into Ihe civic bunks as an
isset and then arbitrarily written
off to revenue account within the
first seven months ol their operating.
You are aware that it the incorporation of the city there was an
overdraft due to the Bank of British North America 01(87,472.12
secured by deposits of certain municipil debentures. A portion of
thii imount wis money uicd in
piying the necemry salaries and
running expenses of the district
municipality from January ist lo
May 31st, 1907, but although this
wai trcited 11 1 liability, no portion of the tix levied by the city
for the yeir 1907 wai carried per
contra 11 an asset, which in our
ipinion ihould have been done,
ind for the purposes ot our iccounti we hive treated 3-12 of the
general rite, covering a period
Irom the ut January to 31st May
11 1 civic asset at June ist, 1907.
That, in our opinion must have
been the intention of the council
in levying the rate, as otherwise
the rafe of n1.. mills levied lor
general expenies, il only for seven
months expenditure would he ultra
virei, being at 1 rite ol 1957
mills per annum, ind therefore
greater than the imount illowcd
by the municipil cliuses ict, 1906
Sec. 136, which stiles "The council miy levy 1 rite to provide for
ill sums which may bc required
lor the lawful purpose of the municipality for lhe year, provided
that it shall nol exceed 15 mills on
Ihe dollar ol the isseised value."
It hu been clearly laid down by
the leading accountants of the
world that the fixed assets or properties of a city should be divided
under three heads:
ilt—properties which are considered remunerative and realizable.
2nd—unrcmunerative but realizable properties.
3rd—unremunerative and unrealizable properties.
and under such headings the waterworks system of the city would
come under No. 1. Under No. 2
would come the public buildings,
(city hall, fire and police stations,
etc.) parks, etc., and the third
class would consist of such assets
as bridges, culverts, sidewalks,
roads, etc., which although uot
realizable are necessary lor the
city to carry on its ordinary func
tions. For this reason we called
lor a valuation of the roads, bridges, etc. which were taken over by
the city, but which were not included amongst the assets on the
The valuation as supplied to us
was (110,423.00, details of which
are attached as per schedule C.
It is obvious that the Committee
appointed to fix the terms on
which the city took over certain
municipal assets, and certain liabilities, had this asset of roads and
bridges in mind, because otherwise
the liabilities were in excess ol the
assets to the extent of (101,463.65.
The deficiency as disclosed by the
books was (108,683.47, but as we
have before pointed out, the ac
crued portion of rates, etc. was
not treated as an asset.
This deficiency is dealt with in
the books in a somewhat peculiar
manner. There is an account
opened in the ledger headed
"North Vancouver City" to which
is charged the total amount ol the
liabilities laken over from the district municipality, amounting to
(237,834.63. It is credited with
sundry assets purporting to be taken over from the district municipality amounting to (129,151.16
thus showing adeficiency of jm\-
683.47. It is further charged on
December 31st with an amount of
(9,500.00, the estimated amount of
accounts owing hy the city on thai
date, irrespective of whether they
were capital or revenue expendi
(mc Un December 31H it is
credited with the balance ol a so-
called revenue account lor the
seven months to December 31st,
1907 ((67,728.01), thus leaving a
debit balance of (50,555 46, which
Vancouver, Canada,
8th Aucust, 1908.
To the Mayor anu Ai hm-.ii \,
Citv ok North Vancouver.
Gentlemen—We hive carefully
considered the report submitted by
Messrs. Kendall, Sewell St Co., as
special auditors, appointed under
Sec. 94 of the Municipal Clauses
Act, and also the report of the
special audit committee dealing
with the same.
Taking up the report in detail
we would point out that the special audit shows that the funds of
the city have been properly accounted for.
The special auditors admit:.
1. That the accounts are properly vouched.
2. That they have verified the
bank accounts.
3. That they have compared
the tax roll with the assessm* nt
roll, and they ire in ibsolute
4. That they have verified the
counterfoils of the tax receipts with
the hooks, and find tl-ey are in
agreement with the exception of a
few cents.
5. They further report that the
actual detail work of the account]
ing has been well performed.
On page 1 of their report the
special auditors state that the city
officials had apparently tried to
comply with the law as regards
district municipalities. Their assumption to thii effect is entirely
wrong. The financial statement
at 31st December, 1907, were prepared at the earliest possible date
at the special request of  the 1907
municipal ict is is lollows:- -" No
municipal council, lave aa by this
or by any other act may be other
wise provided, shall have power
to incur any liability bevond the
municipal revenue for the current
year. And the revenue (or the
use of every council duly elected
shall commence with the legal collection from the first diy of the
year in which the slid council was
elected until the end of the said
year." As city auditors we complied with the provisions of the
foregoing section,and the accounts
of the city as issued it 31st December last arc properly drawn up.
The accounts submitted by the
special auditors are absolutely incorrect from beginning to end.
They are framed, according to the
special auditors own statement as
quoted above, on an entirely wrong
The reference by the special
auditors to the board cf school
trustees, having expended an
amount in excess of the amount
of the school rate, is entirely out
of order. The school trustees have
no control over the rate which is
levied by the council. The council have lo levy a rate to provide
funds (or payment of Ihe school
trustees estimate. The special
auditors' remarks are again in
direct conflict with section 67 of
the municipal act, as the act does
cot contemplate lhat the school
estimates can be paid out of taxes
not collected.
The special auditors' statement

The statement was prepared under  lection 62, of the  municipil

revenue account. This is apparently misleading, and any person
unacquainted with the books would*
probably understand that then
had been a current expenditure of
(50,553.46, more especially as the
certified balance sheet dated January 6th, 1908, stalei that it is 1
balance sheet for the corporation
of Ihe city for the seven months
ending December 31st, 1907.
Then* is shown in the books a
loss on the operating ol thc waterworks of (414.00 gieater than the
amount we show in this account,
owing to the fact that arrears of
ulei were nut included in the
financial statement as at Decemb r
31st, 1907. The iccounti should
be adjusted accordingly.
The rental of (750.00 due Irom
thc lerry company at June 30th,
1907 is at present included in the
books as a revenue asset for the
seven months ending December
31st, 19117,hut n-12 of this amount
had accrued due at thc dale of
incorporation,and we have brought
one month of Ibis into the revenue
account, treating the olher 11-12
as a capital asset.
The (500.00 accruing due be
tween July 1st and December 31st,
1907 under agreement wilh the
ferry company, we have credited to
revenue account. This was not
included in the published accounts
ol Ihe city.
The revaluation of the fixed 1 nn
aisets wis mide by the city Trees*
urer, Mr. Woods, and was apparently based on the assessor's valu-
[concluded on third MM.]
clauses act, which reads:—"In city
municipalities thc council may,
each year, publish in pamphlet
form for the information of ratepayers, a statement of the receipts
and expenditures of the city lor the
year ending the thirty-first day of
December, giving as (ull particular! as possible, to enable the fin-
am ial position of the corporition
to be understood." In our opinion
the stitement was properly issued
and in compliance with the municipal id.
In the next paragraph, beginning on page 2 ol the report the
special auditors reler to thc foregoing section, which they read in
connection with section 1390I the
municipal Act (which is wrongly
quoted in their report), and which
properly, reads as follows:—"Thc
council miy, in eich ind every
yeir, put a by-law or by laws lor
levying 1 rate or rales on all the
land and improvements as assessed to provide for all sums which
may be required for the lawful
purposes of the municipality lor
such year." The special auditors
ten express their opinion ol what
the legislative assembly intended
city municipalities to do, and continue 11 (ollows: "We hive therefore prcpired in iccount contiining the whole revenue from tuition and other sotirrei applicable
to the 1 >i nml. irreipective ol

otherwiie, 11 only by thii method
cm it bc determined whether the
current expenditure hu exceeded
enting account credit (or (414
rentals due but not paid at 31st
December, 1907, but they omit to
charge the operating iccount with
the corresponding item, it ist
June, 1907, when thc city wu incorporated. So that their repo't
ol the loss lor the seven months is
quite wrong.
The clauses on pages 2 ind 3,
dealing with capital assets and liabilities, and current assets and ba
bilities ind the convenion ol liquid
capitil issets into permanent improvements, deil with troubles
which the specul luditon hive
created lor themselves, which do

responsible. The account! ol the
City ol North Vincouver, is submitted it 31st December, 1907,
ire dnwn up in a similar manner
to those of the cities of Edinburgh
ind Glisgow.
The special auditors state thit
the issets do not include the sum
ol (4,625.43 spent lor idditions to
schools. The diiect inlcicnce
thit the bilance sheet is incorrect
to that extent is debbentely misleading. Thc schools ire nut in

wiy concerned with it.     The liability of  the city to   the diitrict
municipality   covers  this   and it
clearly defined in the North Vancouver incorporation act, and properly recorded in the  city booki.
On page! 3 and 4,   the   special
auditors   report   how   they   have
treated the general rate   levied by
the council.    They state  that for
the purposes of their accounts they
have  treited 5-iaths of  it u an
asset at ist June, 1907.     To  lup-
port this extraordinary action they
"xplain as follows:--" That in our
opinion   must have   been the  intention ol the  council in   levying
tin* 1,1(1*. ,\.     and still further to
support their argument   misquote
section 139 of the municipil act by
omitting Irom it the wordi "in eich
and every year."     In reply to the
foregoing, as  city  auditors,   we
claim   (1)  that this treatment   of
the item is entirely wiong, (2) that
a competent auditor confines himself to dealing   with facts and not
with opinions of  the   intention of
other people, and (3) that the rate
levied is perfectly   legal and   perfectly treated in the city books and
statements  as  published   at 31st
December, 1907.     Further,   aec-
iiiin 94 of the municipal   act provides that the duties of an auditor
may extend to a period back to and
since  incorporation,  so thit it is
clearly beyond the   power of my
speciil auditor to aet iside 112th
of the genenl rite (or eich month,
for five months   preceding tbe incorporation of the city.     The financial yeir ol the city ol   North
Vancouver could not begin belore
the city wu incorporated, so that
the first period of  the city's  existence  was  from  ist June to 311!
December,  1907.     Thit wu the
period (or which the 1907 couacil
had control  of  civic  affairs and
their power to levy rates wu limited to their term ol  office.     Sec
139 of lhe municipil id reads:—
"The  council   may, in each  and
every year, put a bylaw for levying a rite on all land, Ac, to provide lor all sums  which miy be
required lor the lawful purpose! of
the municipality   fo.  such  year.
Provided alwayi thit  the rite 10
levied shall not exceed  one and
one-hill cents on the dollar." The
council levied a rate of 11# mills
lo provide money  for tha  lawful
purposes of the municipality from
the melioration of the city 10311!
Dec, 1907,     No  other  general
r; te was levied  during  the year,
ro that the acl wis fully complied
with.    The section in the municipil ict does not reid thit the rate
so levied shall not exceed one and
one hall  cents on   the dollar per
annum   as  is  contended by the
speciil auditors.
Wa do not see that there is any
relation Iietween tbe question of
including the city streets ind
bridges u uiets in the municipal
hilince iheel, and the ipecial
million' definition of whal ihey
stite ii Ihe opinion of the leading
at 1 militants of the woild* The
ciiy ol North Vincouver bilance
iheet ii dnwn up on the lame
lines u the balance ihaets ol the
cities nf Edinburgh, Glisgow and
Montreal. None of these citiei
include their streets and bridges ai
assets in the annual balance iheet.
In the cue of Montreil 1 list of all
special expenditure is published,
showing the expenditure on strecti,
included along with epidemic, discount on debentures, &c. We
consider the municipal officials ol
the principsl British cities are the
highest authorities on framing
municipal balance sheets. Their
accounts clearly show that expenditure un streets ind bridges il
speciil expenditure, ind it il treated according, but it is nol treated
as cspital expenditure and it il
not cirried at in asset. We cliim
therelore, that we ire not only
justified but correct, in lollowing
llu |ir<r,t|ent of these leading
cities, ind that schedule C should
nol be int bided in the municipal
hilince sheet.

high school work in the local
schools, has thrown into prominence the-desirability ol better ferry
facilities for the body of students
which will be compelled to journey
daily to Vancouver, lor high school
instruction. Under the preient
schedule, if the students take tbc
8. jo ferry, they cannot reach lhe
school on time, and under the
rules are compelled to lose the
first lesson period entirely; while
if they take the 7.20 ferry, they
find themselves with three quarters
of an hour to put in as best thev
may in loitering about the city, as
Ihey an* not allowed to enter the
high school building until the
hour for opening arrives. This
latter predicament is particularly
unpleasant during the winter season. From present appearances
there will be a company ol about
filtct'ii students making lhe trip
every morning, a number sufficiently large to justify some consideration in their behall. A ferry
leaving North Vancouver at eight
o'clock would give them sufficient
time to catch a car that would take
theni to the school on time, or a
lerry say at S, 10 would answer provided the B. C. E. Ky. could bc
induced to arrange the time card
of one of the special school cars so
IS to run in conjunction with the -jai m I-mJiI- lyo
lerry.      Some efforts along these
lines have already been  put  forth  |_|$f   YOUR
by the chairman of the local school
board and   it is   hoped that they
will Mt«1 with a (avorable termination.

575,000.00 was intended to cover
the bond issue of the district municipality for waterworks construction, and we think it would he in

the council stated tlieir intention
as to the carrying out ol (his policy
together with the. additional expenditure ol 535,000.00 lor which

The special auditors state that
the liability assumed by the
city at ist of June, 1907, was
not credited with the accrued
portion of rates, etc. We would
point out that these rates were not
ievied till after the city was incorporated and could not possibly
aflectliabilitiesexistingon the date
of incorporation. The contention
ol the special auditors that the
council could increase or decrease
Iht* liabilities assumed under the
act of incorporation by subsequent
ly levying a gieater or less rate is
positively ibiura.
We take exception to the special
auditors' statement that thi 11111111-
cipal account, beaded in the ledger
North Vancouver city, is dealt
with iu a peculiar manner. This
statement of the special auditois is
untrue, lu the very next sentence
the special auditors state that the
account shows a deficiency of 5loH,-

and are referred to by the special

only correct but the details of how
the deficiency atises is shown 111

At 31st December, 1907, the account was properly credited with

111 the civic assets during the scieu
months to 31st  December, 1907,
and the account was also properly
charged with the unpaid liabilities

Call a public meeting, admit the

wink at it. I feel certain the government  would   assist   were   the
people to show themselves in earn-

Hotel at Lynn Valley
To thi. Editor or The Express:
Sir,—As a Irequent visitor to
Lynn Valley,it has occurred to me
on more than one occasion that
there is an alisolute need ol an up-
to-date, well managed hotel there.
The valley is visited hy great numbers of people in the summer sea
son, and there is no accommodation for llieir needs. It should he
home in mind thai there is a walk
ol .ilioni two miles Irom the tram
terminus to the creek and canyon,
and if parties go over for the day
they must perforce carry all their
provender or go without, after l
hot and dusty journey. To the
opponents ol the proposed hotel, 1
would remark that the wants of
the many are as important as the
views nl the few, and that the lav.
is sufficiently strong to see that the
license, if granted, is not abused.
1 am, sir, yours truly,
Hinry Worth
