At the beginning of a new municipal year, especially as one half
of the city council is composed of
new members, a few suggestions
to the council and the ratepayers
on our financial position might not
be amiss.
We find thc annual revenue of
1908 already appropriated (or
various purposes. In fact it is
doubtful if it will quite meet lhe
demands already made on it—
temorary loan by-law, salaries,
interest and sinking funds.
After a careful analysis of the
financial position we fail to see
how the board ol works department can be justified in any extraordinary expenditure over and
above the actual maintenance of
streets ami sidewalks that have already been made. An overdraft
in the bank should be avoided
if possible.
Certain improvements will undoubtedly be made to the waterworks system this year, but it is
impossible lo lay .1 watermain more
than hall a block for one or two
connections, as the cost for same
is out of all proportion to the
revenue derived.
The ratepayers should assist the
council in every tangible way in
curtailing the expense account,
•nd they miy best do this by not
embarrassing the council with
petitions for improvements which
the council are financially unable
to undertake, except under the
frontage by-law principle.
The Irontage tax by-law was
passed to relieve the general fund,
ind the council as a body should
give tlieir hearty support and
nuke it applicable to all petitions
for improvement In ibis way
and this way only, will it prove
sstislsttory and a benefit to the
entire  city.
Strict economy should be the
wltcliword, not only ol thr finance
committre, but ol every member
of the council.

Considerable discussion followed
relative to the flying of a flag during school hours. The question
ditl not binge so much on the use
of tbe flag, but rather what flag
was to br used, tbe Union Jack or
the Canadian Ensign. Dr. Young,
the provincial commissioner of
schools, deems it advisable to use
the former flag, but the trusters
were ol the opinion that, as the
children were Canadians and were
taught the Canadian patriotic
songs, it was more in kerping to
have lhe national emblem flown.
The matter was finally laid over
till nexl meeting of the board. Included in the estimates was an
appropriation for a flag pole and

I Mrs. Conway received thanks for
| the kind treatment and  courtesy
shown their visiting Iriends.
A pouring wet day doubtless prevented many voters from turning
out on Saturday in the North Vancouver District Election, but unusual interest was manifested in
the contest, and Lynn Valley for
once was quite a lively place. In
the result Councillors J. Y.
McNaught and W. II. Davison
were returned by substantial majorities, but the new candidates,
Messrs. J. M. Duval and l'ercy
King, made quite a strenuous tight.
The polls were declared closed at
8.15 at Lynn Valley School, and
the figures were : McNaught, 79;
Davison, 74; Duval, 50; King, 45.
At the close of the poll Mr. A.
Philip, C.M.C, the returning officer, congratulated Messrs. McNaught and Davison on their re-
establishment as councillors for
the district, and also the voters on
their choice. Councillors McNaught and Davison, he said, had
not only had to bear the responsibility of their own actions, but also
the burden of the mistakes of the
council's clerk. He was sorry that
any personal feeling had been introduced into the contest lest it
should have affected the candidates
He had been careful himself not to
say anything that would tend to
complicate matters. The new candidates could not think very badly
of the merits of the clerk, he
thought, seeing that they did not
deem it necessary to send a scrutineer to the poll.
He would be exceedingly glad if
anyone, having my ground of complaint against him, would bring
such complaint to the council, to
whom he was responsible to the
fullest extent. The complaint that
hid been made was brought before
the council at the last meeting, and
the clerk'i explanation was accepted. Regarding those who had
been elected he had this to ssy,
they had been is loyal to the interests of the electors as ever councillors were. During five-and-a-half
years post he had had dealings with
a good many councillors, and had
always had the best relations with
them; and the two gentlemen who
were elected had been as loyal to
the interests ol the electors ss anybody who had ever sat on a council. Ihey had been blamed Ior
one particular matter, ind had
been called tin brands. II there
was any matter of importance to
Lynn Valley it was what had been
called s small matter. The matter
in dispute between the two councils amounted to this; there is s
line of poles set up ten feet from
he outside of the Lynn Valley
road, and as the road there is only
33 feet, it necessitated the water
main going up the center ol the
roid reserve, a claim ol right to
have th.; poles on thst locstion by
virtue ol the water clauses and the
incorporation acts.   The council
had endeavored to get 1 settle
ment as to whether the city had
such 1 right or not. They had not
the least idei in their mindi ol
withholding from the city the privilege ol s telephone line. They
had offered to iccept from the city
a resolution that bore on it, admitting that it wis s privilege, snd
that the right of the road belonged
to the district. The city council
refused to pass such a resolution.
Whit could the diatrict council
do ? They could not come to in
arrangement with the city council,
ind had to (all back on the provision that in matter! of dispute
reference should be msde to arbitrators. The cost of arbitration
would not be so much as the cost
of .1 contested election. Thst cost
would be very small compared
with the importance of having thst
road perfectly cleirol my burden!
or rights upon it. The district
council said they were perfectly
willing to bave the matter in the
hindi of Mr. Alexinder, the sti
pendiary magistrate. Mr. Sinclair
had been nominated by the city
council, and in a sliort time those
two centlemen would settle exactly
whether that road was the property of the district council unburdened by this line of poles. Mr.
Philip was perfectly satisfied that
the council would do justice to the
city's interests, but they had first
to think of the interests of their
own electors.
Adverting to the charge that had
been made against him, Mr. Philip
stated that he asked his council on
Friday night if any of them had
any idea in his mind that he, Mr.
Philip, sought to dominate or influence their counsels, and he was
glad to hear one and all of them
declare that any suggestion in that
direction was a slander on them.
He had not once, so far as he knew,
deliberately sought to influence
their decisions. He had tried to
do his utmost to give them the best
informstion available for carrying
on their business. He was responsible to them. At one minute's
notice the reeve could suspend him
or the council dismiss him, and he
did nol see how it could be suggested or imagined that he was in
a position to dominate them.
Councillor McNaught said that
though they were only a small dot
on the map of their great district,
they had made quite 1 little bit of
smoke during the last few dayi,
and much good was going to come
of it. The public knew now, he
said, many things they never knew
before. It never was his wish to
wash his dirty linen in the nostrils
ol the public Many things had
been said that could now be forgotten. Let the dead past bury
its desd, and let each of them put
his shoulder to the wheel of progress and roll it along Lynn Valley
is hard ts he could. He strongly
urged the electors to attend Ihe
meetings ol the council, and if any
thing did not meet with their approval to say so there.
Councillor Davison retired from
the contest on the election for
school trustees, and consequently
the other candidates, John Law-
son, Charles Nelson and Harry
Thompson were elected without
Wedding Anniversary
On Monday evening last, Mr.
and Mrs. Robt. McGinhis celebrated their twentieth wedding
anniversary, by giving a dance
snd supper at llieir residence,

The government is erecting a
new school house in Lynn Valley
to meet lhe requirements of 1
rapidly growing coiiiiiiiinity. The
structure will be 27x33 feel, and
contains one room, consideribly
larger than the former schoolroom.
Judging from the growth of the
attendance during the past year, it
will be but a very short time ere
this room is too small.
We take this opportunity of sincerely thanking the electors of this
district for (he loyal support Ihey
gave us at the municipal election
on the 18th inst., thereby endorsing our former transactions ol the
business of the council in returning us again by such a large majority. It will be our aim ind en-
deivor to retain 1,1111 confidence
reposed in ui by assisting to our
utmost in the developing ind upbuilding of this district.

The members of the Young People's Club listened to a most inte-
fMting anil instructive address in
St. Andrew's Church on Tuesday
evening last. The lecturer was
the Kev. R, Millikin of Vancouver,
who dealt with his subject, viz.:
"Some Puritan Traits Suitable for
the Voting People ol to dav," in a
most masterly fashion.
Willi reference to the article appearing   iu    Monday    evening's
ll'arlif, relative to the opening up
of large ship building works and
graving dock by A. Wallace, Ltd.,
Mr. Wallace, when asked to
make a statement, said that he-
was neither prepared to verify or
leny the story at present. It was
stated in the above paper that
quarter of a million dollars
would be spent in North Vancouver, antl that Mr. Wallace would
start operations at once.
The Indian Mission
Concerning the North Vancouver Indian School and Mission,
wh ich is situated at the southwest
of the city. It commands one of
the best views of the city. The
magnificent bay seems lo show
purposely its beauty belore thc
admiring eyes of the tourists, who,
on Sundays, flock around the
mission school.
It was founded about nine yeats
ago by the Right Reverned Bishop
Durien, first R. C. bishop of North
Vancouver. It is to-day, under
the able management of the
sisters ol the institution, who
spare no pains to promote lhe intellectual and corpural well-being
of the children, who number between 60 and 70 boys and girls.
These young people have acquired
the reputation ol being the sweetest
singers in British Columbia. The
mission comprises several reserves
along the inlet, and the Squamish
river il under the care ol a priest
coming to North Vancouver twice
a week. About 300 Indians attend to the religious instruction
with great satisfaction. The Right
Rev. Bishop Durien was one ol
the first to preach, to convert and
civilize them. Under his management the church was built, and
after a meeting house when the
village took the present aspect
with street and sidewalks. It
must be said thai the first sidewalk in North Vancouver was
built by the Indians. All these
constructions were built by the
work and money ol the Indians,
the church and the government
not spending a cent for thc purpose. Today thc Squamish tribe
numbers about 400 Indians.

Our Growing Time.
The question ot increased arcom-
moibitiiin for new comers and visitors to our city for the current yeai
is one to be seiiously considered.
In new milling towns where lhe
larger part nl the population llll
always been men without homes,
the ellieit way of dealing witli the
matter has been to grant liquor
licences tn hotel keepers 011 condition that Ihey would provide a
certain number of sleeping rooms
and other accommodation for regular boaitlcrs and for the travelling
public. Under these arrangements
the public have often been given
good hotel accommodation at shorl
notice, ln towns whose fiitnn
was problematic, the hotel proprietor, considering Ihat if he could
have a vear or two of the liquor
trade and a free hand in the gambling business, he would come out
all right even if the town proved a
It perhaps would not be dilTicull
during this year to procure the
erection of several good-sized hotel
buildings in North Vancouver by
the granting of a licence in each
case. Is tlm the better plan to
follow ? If the hotels are not built
can we obtain the accommodation
required in any other way ? It il
■portanl ibil wt should come to
a decision in this matter at DOG .
At hast one largi' apartment house
il under consideration for our city,
and I venture to say that such .111
institution would do more fnr us
at present than would anothei hotel. There are also several pel
sons prepared to run large board*
ing houses if the outlook justifies
the venture. To let the public
know at presenl what general line
we intend to follow would give ii-
vi -*tt is lhe cue in reganl to laying
out their money.
As an investor 1 do nol wi-h to
ereel I large ami expensive building as an hotel, with expensive bar
futures and acconiniodatkiu rotted

In ciucs are likely lo be multiplied,
until the rivalry for trade at the
bar may lead hotel proprietors to
give board and lodging at less than
a paying price.
My own opinion is that, Inr yean
to come, Ninth Vainouvt 1 will be
principally a resident ial city.
There is a large number ol men
who wink in uiiinli) plan *.lining

ll'ti 1 ptnptietors then* claim tint
even if a man dunks he looks
about for a temperance hotel when
he takes the family out for a sum

There is an increasing number
of far-sccing influential buiilHM
men all over Canada antl the United
States who arc inclined to put the
liquor business in a small place.
Itt 1 ti sli Columbia, a few \iars ago,
gave a majority vote in faun nl
prohibition, I RO years agn iii the
I'lnvincial Parliament, lm ll option

carried. Notth Vancouver would
now give 1 majority vole In favor
of local option, and must make it
60 per cent. Within tin |ul few
yeirs in the midst of growing prosperity, temperance lentimcnt has
gained ground in Vancouver and
Victoria, and in fact all over Brit
ish Columbia.   This is evidenced
by the ti pe of men who are being
'lected as mayors and aldermen.
Kvc'n Phienix, a t\j>ical mining
town, selects a mayor who " jmls
the Iiti on, antl keeps it on."
There are thousands of families
looking to this coast for home-.
' ittnT things being equal seventy-
live per cent ol Ihese families will
give the preference to tbe clean
city. The surest way of nuking I
great business city of North Vancouver in the future is to make it
a great city of homes in the present.
By prohibiting gambling, ami In
restricting the liquor business w ith
in the smallest possible place we
shall be working lo make Nortli
Vancouver a popular residential
city. British Columbia has been
progressing for several years along
moral lines, and the city or the individual that will not, in this tt-
sped, advance with his country
shall be left out nl the race.

The much discussed road
through district lots 614 mil 015
is again coining belore Ihe public
The Western Cotjioratioii entered
into a contract with the municipality to make a road through
D. 1. 615, but after looking over
the ground it was thought advisable to circumnavigate a steep
hill which lies on the line ol the
proposed road. The company applied to the council to have the
road changed at this spot, wbiih
was alleged to have been agned
to, but lalet the council refused lo
certify the |>lans unless the company would fnregn their contiatt
lor opening lhe road. Seveill
conferences have taken place since
tin- bitch, with the result that lhe
Western Corporation haveappbtd
for a mandamus to coinptl the
municipality ol North Vancnuver
to certily the plan of Lot 615,
owned by the company. The
matter was adjourned to February
4, in order that llu* jiro|ierty owners affected may be heard.
