gainst lhe Motot Dual Trans
port.itton C"inp,iii\, counsel for
ihe   N.   V.   Ferry   and   Power
Company   admitted   ih.u   his
company did not possess an ex-
ilusivc license, hut contended
that the new ferry company had
no provincial license whatever,
and therefore had no right lo
operate The judgment of his
lordship 111 this 1.ise was as follows: "I am not full* satisict
thai the plaintiffs material is
sufficient    to   jtlsltly   uu*   ill   as
earning that tne} are bouad to

this, I think tins is a uise in
which damages will meet  ihe
case.    I therefore refuse the   ill
juai tniii suit, with costs."
In the application ol lhe cilv
in cued the license of the N.V.
Kerry Company, Justice Morrison sustained the prelimin.ii\
objection, that the case was uol
within the jurisdiction of his
court, as (ollows: "I think that

The following ahle paper wa.s
read hy Aid. Irwin, at the regular session of the North Vancouver board of trade, on Tuesday evening of last week:—
How our board of trade can
most effectively advertise the
city and district:
It may be assumed that some
of the main objects of hoard oi
trade advertising are for the
purposes of:
1. Securing new settlers o!
the most desirable classes who
will by their capital, energy and
experience, materially aid in
the up-building and development ol the city and district.
2. Securing additional capital for the commencement and
carrying on of industrial and
commercial undertakings calculated to develop and make a-
vailahle the great natural (but
undeveloped) wealth which our
city and district undoubtedly
possess, thus furnishing remunerative employment, and a
greater circulation of money in
the channels of trade and busi-
J. Making known to investors
of capital the unexcelled opportunities lor profitable investments in city and district real
estate, and thus subdividing into smaller holdings, that can he
more profitably handled, improved and developed, enabling
present holders of large unimproved estates to release by the
sale of portions thereof sufficient capital to improve and
make profitable such portions
as they may retain.
4. By these and other means
to hasten the advent ol railroai
and shipping facilities such a
will tiring to North Vancouver
its rightful share ol trade antl
Advertising may here be con
sidered as the means to be u.su
lor the accomplishment ol tin
above objects, and in its righl
ful sphere its place cannot hi
taken by anv other known
means at our disposal.
Therclore il the aliove outlined objects are esseutial and
worthy ol our best eflorts, it
lollows that our important
duty is to consider this very iin
portant work in the light ol our
Iiest judgment, and the accumulated experience of other places
where the lioards of trade and
public bodies have had the
greatest degree of success.
Briefly, I respectfully .submit
lor your carelul consideration
and approval as follows:—
1. North Vancouver can at
the present stage of development be most effectively advertised in the city of Vancouver,
where the great and ever increasing concourse of tourists
and visitors are within easy
reaching distance, and can easily verily tlie truth of bur representations.
2. That North Vancouver establish in some suitable hall or
building in the city of Vancouver, the nucleus* of a permanent
free exhibit, (preferably in the
same building as exhibits ol
Vancouver and surrounding municipalities,may in the near future lie arranged for.)
J. That such free exhibit
should include samples of our
timlier, minerals, fruits, vegetables, and other products, also
a suitable topographic or other
maps and data as to our magnificent harbor and available
lacilities Ior railroads, shipping
shipbuilding yards, wheat elevators,flour mills,lumber mills,
and the various other industries
lor which this place is so well
4. That such exhibit lie maintained in a creditable manner,
and Iree to the public during
week-days, say Irom 9 a.m. to
5 P m.
5. That a hall-hour descriptive lecture illustrated by ster-
eoptican views be delivered each
week-dav, in some suitahle hall
or building in Vancouver, by a
competent speaker, thoroughly
informed on the subject of
North Vancouver and its possibilities. At the close of such
lecture, the speaker could draw
particular attention to the Iree
exhibit ol North Vancouver
products and data, relative to
harbor, ets.
ft. That this board consider
the advisability of communkat-
injr with, or laying the matter
lieforr the Vnncouver board of
trade, Tourist Association,   or
other public bodv, with a view
of securing joint action by the
city ol Vancouver, and the city
and district of North Vancouver (subject to the approval of
the respective councils tliereof),
as to procuring a suitahle lull
for exhibits and lectures, a fair
portion of rental and maintain-
ance to be contributed by each
municipality or district using
the sanie, thus reducing to a
minimum the costs to be borne
by each, and the resultant maximum ol benefits that must result from united action in carrying to a successful issue a
plan that has met with such
unqualified success in other
parts of the world.

The New Schoolsites
Editor The Express,
Sir,—We would ask you lo be
good enough to publish lhc enclosed copy ul uur tender lot
school land, which we sent    to
the North Vancouver school
Ue particularly wish to poinl
out the inconsistency of the
school board in publicly calling
fur lenders lor ichool lands, by
means of an advertisement,containing certain   plain   speiilien-
lions, ami then recommending
the purchase of lands which in
110 particular conform to tin*
advertised requirement.
The advertisement in.Tin- l-',\
press calls: ist. A parcel in
north part ol I) I,. :;.t, or in llu
south part ol 1)1, MO, Tin*
piece selected is well situated
ior ihe purpose required, imt ii
is not in uie north part ol j;.*,
or south purl ol 550, but iu llu*
unite ol .;t
We tllil nol 1 ,ler laud in that
neighborhood,   because   ue It.1*1
to adhere to  he conditions im-
posed upon us.    Moreover, the
.ulvcrti.scucm .slates plaint-
ihat the plot of ground shout..
have streets all around, or at
least on three sides.     Thc plot
oi ground selected in block 11,
U.l,. Jj.t, is composed ol two
Separate pieces ol 4 lots each,
and bounded by only twu
streets. Il is not a compact
piece, as il is divided liy a lain
which cannot be closed excepl
bv consent ol all the property
owners in block 11, and such a
consent will never be obtained.
2nd.    A pared in 5is     Tin
piece Selected ill block 2uh, Is
also well situated, Iiiii il dins
not  conform  to  specification,
which calls lor streets al least
on three sides.     Moreover, look
at the price, fi6,ooo m 1 acres
1,'j miles from wharl.     As then
will be a loss of lo per cent, in
selling    debentures    this   pieu
would  probably  cosl   lhc  rati
payers nearly $18,1100.
Compare with this our oiler
ol lots 1 lo Jo, in subdivision -t
ol block J3, D.L. v|4\\So.
This plot oi ground is situate
in an excellent neighborhood,
has streets all around, three ol
which arc graded;  It contains
Sea acres Ol lain!, ami the pru,
asked is i.iili Si |,om'.   payabli
in 5.1 years' debentures al par
this meant onlv Si2,51a) lo us.
Tills land is assessed at >-)5ti"
and we would be curious to
know whal the lour acres in
block 2oti are assessed al.
Wc claim  lhat  the adurlisi
ment for tendera was abaalutet*
misleading, and that any lum.,
lide oilers, 111 strict co|]loriii..]iu
made with the mutation lm
tenders, had no chance oi being
accepted. .Moreover, we lanum
see the need ol so much sutn ]
This is a mailer of Universal
interest to the ratepayers, and
the school trustees should not
be advene iu making all the
oilers publii.
Thanking you Ior the time
and space wc .m* taking up, wi
an, yours trulv,
