Mr. riionipson protested apainst
'■any change being made to a

only damage the permanent owners
of property but would be unsuitable
fur a business streei and car line,
and make haulage all llu more
difficult, an tin* grade between

In hi- letter Mr. Home thought
the present grade un the ca t side
of Lonsdah.' avenue about right

The North Vancouver I.ami &

THE GRADE ON LONSDALE
AVENUE.
On enquiry wc find lhat the
present grades on Lonsdale avenue art.': Six per cent., from the
wharl to the Esplanade; 7(1 per
cent., the Esplanade to First
street; 87 per cent., First street to
Keith road.
The efluci of raising the lower
side ol First slreet to suit the lloor
of lhe Keith block, now iu course
of erection, at the corner of First
street, will lie lo increase tlie
grade about one per cent., nml
raise llie side walk nearly a foot at
the lane, near Dick's oflice, nnd
more than a foot opposite W. E,
"iionipson's Building, and will require about i,aoo cubic yards filling.
We believe that llie council has
erred in deciding lo alter the present  grade    even   though  it  were
lhe unanimous recommendation ol
llu' consulting engineers, We have
lieen informed that equally competent snivel ms aiiil engineers
themselves disagree in the matter
of bench and straight grades, And,
therefore, common sense should
prevail in ibis matter. The question nl ^ratling was discussed previous to the aiilveiit nl lliis paper,
two veins and a llllll ago, and al
different intervals since, We be
lieu* thai wo an* voicing the opinions nl a majority ol the ratepayers when we say leave the grade as
il is, and gel bust by erecting
buildings in conformity with the
existing line.
Aid. |ordan's remarks lust night
were timely, thnl the citizens
should take inure interest than
tlmy .In iii civic all,tits. II tlmi
had ddnc mi ilu* question 0 1 1
permanent grade would have Intu
sellleil ere tins.
I hs Worship ilm Mayor could
nnt have very well refused tn cast
bis vnie tn alter tlm* grade, seeing
that ii was ilm recommendation ol
the engineers, whom tlm council
liad requested to nice an expert
opinion,
Lei the grade on Lonsdale avenue In settled once and Inr all on
Monday night,
