Ninety-nine per cent, ol the di-
Ilicultie.SjWhich had arisen had
lieen due to the fuse rack on the
south side at .Second Nairows
crossing. To remedy this, a
duplicate current had been installed in the substation, so
thai the rack will now bc under
the constant supervision ol an
.ilu lent operator. The company
also intends to rebuild iln
transmission line on the norlh
side ol the Inlet along Lynn
creek. The new line will avoid
l.ynn creek and thus do away
with a prolilic source o( annoyance and reduce the trouble to
a minimum. North Vancnuver
will then be on the same li.isis
as Vancouver, with regard to
continuity ol service.
In addition to the above, two
new transformers were recently
installed in the local substation
Ior light and power purposes,
and three new transformers for
railway purposes were installed

they displaced. New transformers will likewise lie installed
at once for the street arc system, which will double the present capacity of the plant. The
company wished to assure the
council that they would do
(everything within their power
to give North Vancouver good
and continuous service.

Councillors McNaught and
Nye were present at the session ol the district council on
Wednesday evening of last week
Reeve May presiding.
The deputy commissioner sent
a letter enclosing the certificate
of purchase ol lots 1363 and
1413. This is the Lynn valley
park property.
The city clerk wrote, to the
eflect that the city had authorized the improving of the old
road through DX. 546, to make
it fit lor travel.
Mrs. J. 11. Gibson wrote, directing the attention ol the
council to the fact that Lonsdale avenue north is well nigh
impassable for pedestrians, and
requesting that the necessary
improvements be made. The
engineer is to act.
A petition, signed by certain
residents ol Lynn valley, was
presented, asking that a road be
opened up through lots 7, 9, 10
D.L. 2033, from Lynn valley
road to Frederick road, a distance of 1100 feet, as the skid
road previously used is about to
be closed on account of the purchase of property through
which it passes. Thc engineer
to act.
Medical Health Olhcer J. J.
Iv Campbell submitted his annual report. There have been
no infectious diseases during
thc year and but one case ol
tuberculosis. The sanitaiy arrangements of the district are
satisfactory. The providing ol
a pure water supply for a large
portion of the district will do
away with the dangers attendant upon a supply Irom promiscuous sources. The methods
ol the one dairy in the district
were somewhat primitive, but
the product was wholesome.
Report tiled.
District Solicitor W.K.Burns,
advised the council that he had
attended court during thc ferry
cases as instructed, aud asked
lurther instructions as io appeal proceedings. Council considered no further attendance
required at present.
A plan of subdivision of the
N.F.. one-hall ol lots 3 and 4,
D.L. 950, was passed.
Monthly accounts as follows
were ordered paid : Finance
committee, total, $25290 I
board ol works, total,$1 193.'>:;
waterworks  committee,   total,
Tbe annual ratepayers' meeting will be held in the municipal hall on Tuesday, January
1 jib. at 8 p 111. A meeting will
be held in Lynn valley on Thurs
day, the 14th, at 8 p.m.
A local improvement bylaw,
lor the improvement and extension ol Lonsdale avenue,
from the north boundary of D.
L 801 to the south boundary
ol D.L. 785, a distance of 4000
feet, at an estimated cost of
$3440 was read and laid over.
A bylaw, lor the expropriation of a roadway, 66 feet wide,
through D.L. 624, a distance ol
1540 leet, namely the Deep Cove
road, was read, as was also a
bylsw lor the straightening ol
3ist street through D. L. 2008
to D I, 2025, expropriating a
roadway in thc proper location,
snd giving in consideration
thefelor the corresponding section at present registered. This
waa likewise laid over.
The proposition Irom John
Lawson, to give a 66 loot roadway, from the proposed wharl
to Keith road, in exchange lor
certain lanes in the vicinity,
was accepted.
Chiel of Police Davies, under
date ol January 2, presented to
the chairman of the board ol
police commissioners, the following report of his departing for the past year:—
I am pleased to report that
the city, criminally speaking,
has tared well. There was only
one serious case to contend
with, v\i.,—an attempted rape
on a domestic servant girl. A
young man was arrested and
committed lor trial. The police, while working on this case
cleared up the Warlow shopbreaking case, securing a quantity of the stolen goods. Thc
prosecution was withdrawn by
lhe 11 ui 1 pininant, on account of
retribution having been made.
ln my last year's reporl, i
called the attention of the
board to the necessity oi having some improvements made
in the gaol. The modern steel
cells are built so that they can
be easily removed, if necessary,
at small expense.
I received one hundred and
fifty-two (152) complaints, lhat
were attended to, and one hundred and sixty-nine (169) reports from constables. Filty-
two (52) reports were made on
street lights, which embrace
several occasions when the complete system was oil. Kiglil
(8) sick persons were tttended
to. Twenty-one (21) places of
business were found open after
hours. One Roumanian family
came to the city in July, the
lather became insane and was
committed to the asylum. I
got in touch with the emigration authorities and succeeded
in having the whole family deported.
The value ol goods reported
lost amounted to $879.05; the
value of goods recovered was
$801.50, leaving a balance of
$77.55. The value of goods reported stolen amounted to
$718.80; the value of goods recovered was $487.75, leaving a
balance of $231.05.
I regret to state that thc
citi7.cns are very much to blame
in many cases, as they leave
valuables lying around without
any protection.
There was recovered stolen
goods, reported from outside
places, to thc value of $540.
Thc following cases were
dealt with in the police court:
Drunk and incapable 29, drunk
and disorderly 4, in a state of
intoxication (Indian ail) 9,
liquor in possession!Indian act)
3, drunk with liquor in reserve
(Indian act) 1, supplying liquor
to Indianr (Indian act) 1, theft
I withdrawn, attempted rape 3
two dismissed, cruelty to animals 1, vagrancy 3, robbery
from the person I, indecent assault 1, threatening language
towards wile 1, carrying concealed weapons 1, stolen goods
in possession 1 withdrawn; a
total ol 60. There were two
cases of delirium tremens and
one case of insanity dealt with.
Thc total amount collected
in fines and costs aggregated
thc sum of $735. Eighty-nine
davs were worked by prisoners.
Three prisoners were sent to
thc provincial gaol and served
time there.
On the nth day   of   August
the city pound was amalgamated with the police department,
and the results show very favorably with the previoui vear.
Five months of 1407 yielded
$21, while in 1411K the receipts
were $113.40.
We have received few complaints ol cattle and horses running at large.
