"North Vancouver, B. C,
"Oct. 31, 1905.
"The Reeve and Council:
"GmLF'UN,—It has been
publicly slated that the Western
Corporation must be making a
good profit om of the council when
tbey quote >itio more than othei
firms on an IHoo lumber order. As
ibis is not true we feel it our dull
to lay before your council th.
following facts:
"U11 October 14, Mr.  Morden
asked me lor a quotation on 72,80
feel of lumber,
"On looking over the   bill
suggested that a  good   deal   ol
same  might  be  'cull,'  but  Mr.
Morden distinctly stated that 'no
culls would be allowed.'
"I quoted a price of f800.80 for
alt merchantable lumber, and, to
my surprise, at your meeting of
October 18, found the bill hat!
been obtained from the Rat Portage Lumber Company (or the sum
of J660.
"Knowing that there was some-
thingstrange about the transaction,
I immediately wrote the B. C.
Lumbermen's Association, asking
how the Rat Portage Lumber
Company could arrive at such a
low figure for 'merchantable lumber. ' The answer received (a copy
of which is attached hereto) was
to the effect that 21,000 (eet of the
order was 'culls,'
'Under the circumstances we
did not get a fair chance to quote
on the same lines as other firms.
Had it been so, we could have
supplied the bill at exactly the
same price of ?66o, and iu view ol
the fact that our corporation is a
large taxpayer of the municipality,
and, also, considering that we
spend from I400 to Jt6oo every
week in wages alone, seven-eighths
of which amount is spent right in
North Vancouver, we feel coi-
viuced that every fair-minded
citizen will say that we should he
put on the same footing as outsiders in quoting prices, and if all
things are equal our company
should get the preference. Yours
"H. C. Wright."
"Vancouver, B. C, Oct. ij, 'oj.
"Messrs. Western Corporation,
412 Hastings street, city:
"Dear Sirs,—In reply to your
favor of 19th inst., re Rat Portage
Lumber Company quoting a lump
sum on a tender lor the North Vancouver municipal council, would
say that 1 have investigated your
complaint and find that the mil*
understanding arose from the fact
that whilst your corporation quoted
a price for 'merchantable' lumber,
Alderman Morden purchased some
21,000 feet of 'cull' lumber from
the Kal Pottage people, iu light oi
which it can be easily seen that the
price quoted by the Rat Portage
Lumber Company would be quite
correct.   Yours truly,
"R. H. H. Alexander,
Councillor Morden—I must take
objection to that letter. I told
Mr. Wright distinctly, after he had
asked me whether the lumber that
Mr. Blackburn was using would do,
that that lumber was good enough
for me. As for my saying anything
about merchantable lumber, I certainly never made a statement of
that kind. There was a difference
in the price between the Western
Corporation and the Rat Portage
Lumber Company of <i6o in the
bill, and I would like to know how
you are going to make that differ,
ence in 21,000 feet of culled lumber. I think it my duty, as a mem
ber of this council, to buy lumber
in the cheapest market. I would
give our own people the preference,
but when it comes to such a wide
difference 1 shall certainly not do it
Mr. Wright asked the Reeve
permission to say a few words.
He said "Mr. Morden came into my
office, and another gentleman was
sitting there at the time who heard
all he said. Mr. Morden said
nothing at all about the Blackburn
lumber "
Councillor Morden got indignant
at this remark and said to Mr.
Wright: "Can you get up and
swear that I did not say that the
Blackburn lumber was goodenough?
You know thai I said it, and I don't
go behind any man's back to tell
Mrs. I. M. Hamersley wrote re

Creek to the tost, Capilaw Creek to the west, Burrard
Inlet to the south, and three miles above high water
mark to the north.
Clerk Philip—Nothing, the Indians are at the Squamish.
Mr. Wright asked regarding the
building of the drain at foot of
Lonsdale avenue. He said that
the nuisance complained of came
Irom the municipal hall.
The Reeve said that instructions
have been given to build the box

Mr. Wright-Mr. Reeve, I wish

Councillor Bell interrupted him,
saying this was no place (or an
altercation. *'I would move," he
continued, "that the letter be referred to Councillor Mordcn to report
on in writing at the neat meeting."
Reeve Kealy-Wcll, but	
Councillor Bell-Well, I have my
reasons for it.
Councillor May—What is the rule

Mr. Wright again arose, saying
he wished to say	
Councillor Morden-You can't
get up and defend yourself and
Mr. Wright—I certainly can and
I can swear —
Councillor Morden—Then you
swear to an untruth.
The Reeve—You have both made
statements and you both have had
your say, ami I think that is sufficient. Now, Mr. Bell, we will
bear your motion.
Councillor Bell repented bis mo
Councillor Allan—1 agree with
Councillor Bell that this is not the
place for an altercation of that
kind.   I will second the motion.
Motiou tallied.
That the Plumbers' by-law be
lelt over for next year's council to
deal with.
That the solicitor he asked il the
Council had power to use the sinking fund for waterworks purposes.
Mr. F. Elbridge wrote complaining that he was stopped by the
constable nn Lonsdale and told he
was a pedlar, and must stop that
or take out a license. He explained that he was only catrying a parcel under his arm for a Customer,
and the constable was satisfied.
He suggested that the license bylaw should be more correctly interpreted.
The clerk said that llie pedlar's
license was ty, but gave it as his
opinion that a person such as the
coniplaiiitant, who got orders in
the city, and then came over to
deliver the goods so unified did
not come within the operation ol
the by-law.
The committee reports were ol a
routine nature ami were adopted.
The Finance Committee reported
on strert ends, that the end ol
Chesterfield avenue should be rented for an annual lee ol 5240, and
that the ends of St. George's, St.
Andrew's, Si. Patrick's aud St.
David's loads should be anted lor
f ibo each annually.
The question ol licensing pcdlais
was discussed.
Councillor May asked il anything
had been done re the right ol way
through the Indian reservation.

The average attendance is over
48, winch is a considerable increae
over last month. It is to be hoped
that In the face uf this, the Depart iiirni ol Education will not cut
ull the Second division ; 5$ pupils
aic in attendance and this number is
steadily being added too.
The teaching stall is pleased to
be able to say that the children of

the secret ol their success.

Alfred Shaw, Nellie Phillips,
Thomas Mills, Robert Smith,
Ruby Lill, and Carmen Lill.

Some Indians from the Mission
succeeded in killing a large black
bear on Monday. The animal was
seen quite frequently in that
neighborhood lately and consequently exposed itself to the crack
shots that live there. The skin
was sold in Vancouver and realized
the sum of $30.
Some time between Saturday
evening and Monday morning a
would-be safe cracker made an
attempt to open the safe in the
office of the Western Corporation.
The handle used in turning the
locks on it were broken off
as if it had been hammered, and
the combination showed signs of
having been tampered with. The
work ii evidently that of amateurs.
Constable Hick was notified as
soon as the discovery was made
and is exhausting every effort to
bring the marauder to justice, As
yet no clue has been established.
" The Passing; of a Race."
The editor has received a bound
volume of the above interesting
work, written by D. W. Higgins,
formerly speaker of the British
Columbia Legislature.
The work should be of great
interest to the residents of this
province, since the book deals
with tales ol Western life, principally of British Columbia.
The reminiscent stories are all
founded upon actual occurances
on the coast, and are profusely
illustrated. To the rising generation this hook will, no doubt,
prove very valuable as well as
interesting and Instructive,

At the council meeting on
Wednesday night a letter was
read from II. C. Wrighl, complaining oi unfair treatment nt the
hands of the chairman of the Board
of Works, Councillor Morden, in
awarding a tender for lumber.
The council referred the communication to ihe councillor himself to report on ut a future meeting. Councillor Bell said there
were reasons for so doing. We
admit that we do not understand
this kind of procedure, because we
look upon the matter as being a
straight charge of wrong doing
against Councillor Morden, and
think that it should have been
settled by the council, either by
exoneratiig or condemning the
accused for his action.

The first provincial election ol
Aljerta will take place on Novem
her g, when the patriotism ol the
partisan will he put to the test.
Liberals will commit a grave error
il they let this milestone ill the
progress ol the Dominion hear the
spalter ol mud-slinging. Likewise
Will the conservatives exhibit excessive imprudence il they adopt
tactics unbecoming men who are
in the limelight ul the world today.
The narrow portion ol the
Liberal party will exult unduly
over the consummation ol his
party's policy, ami tile mean Conservative will frown because ol the
incidentals lie could urn countenance and which Im luught with dis-
lavur. The tree will ul scll-guveril-
unlit must ultimately prevail and
the educational liberties due lu a
democratic and progressive commonwealth will Iind a constitutional louiidation.

The Iall ol Russian autocracy is
now assured, according lu dispatches at hand. Count Wine
ha) been given almost unlimited
powers, and has set about iorming
a cabinet. Tlie old outer ol things
has ceased to exist in Russia.
The farcical national assembly
has given place tu a real legislative
body, with greater fundamental
civil liberties, including freedom of
speech and press. Alter a day
spent in conference with the
Emperor, Count Wiltc emerges
lorth with the glare ol victory on
his face, and the strong determination to work fur the betterment
ol the classes. The manifesto
gives the right   lo  habeas corpus
proceedings ami immunity ol the
prison—Iwu things iu itself that,
no doubt, will create widespread
rejoicing. The more (act ol the
populace being accorded representation in the governing ol the
provinces will, in all probability,
put a tpinitu:. on the noting
now going   on.   The   nott   and
lil Ished ol tli*' past lew days,
consequent upon the resumption
of the sltikt: ol neatly every industry in Russia, have penetrated
the walls ol autocracy with effect,
and it was not until the nation it-
sell began battering at (his stronghold did it give way, ami hence
I'liin a uatiuii will lal,ti another
step in civilisation. Russia has
always been looked upon us a semi
barbaric race; this originating out
of ilie treatment ol criminals and
political moral advocates in years
I gone by. Witto has pi united a
Fhird I change, and, judging by his stem
