Change in Managership
W. B. Bunbury, who recently
resigned his position aa local manager of the B. C. Electric Railway
Co., handed over the office on
Tuesday to his mcceisor, Albert
G. Parry.
Mr. Bunbury entered the service
of the company as motorman, in
the year 190a, and because of his
efficient services experienced rapid
promotion,being appointed cashier
at the Westminster avenue office;
then assistant traffic manager, and
later manager at North Vancouver,
upon the installation of the system
Assistant manager,F.R. Glover,
interviewed at the head offices of
the company, freely expressed the
company's sincere regret at tbe
severance of Mr. Bunbury'i con
nection. The latter had nandled
the railway and commercial business in this city to the entire satia-
faction of the company. His personal qualities render him worthy
any position of trust which the
company might have to bestow.
The company realizes that its own
interests and the interests of the
public are mutual, and Mr. Bunbury had at all times made every
endeavor to conserve the interests
of both. When Mr. Bunbury de
cided to retire from the managership in North Vancouver.the company would have been pleased to
<>ff' r him a position iu another
brunch of the service, but his resignation had made this impracticable. It was still hoped that at
some luture time tbe company
might be able to offer Mr. Bunbury
such inducements as will again secure to them his valued services.
Mr.Bunbury has connected himself with the North Vancouver Motor Transportation Co.,and intends
making his home in this city.
In appointing Albert G. Parry to
the position of local manager, the
company has given well deserved
promotion to one who has always
proven himself a capable and efficient official in other capacities.
Mr. Parry came from London,
to Canada, twenty years ago, ten
of which was spent in Manitoba,
chiefly in Winnipeg, and ten in
Vancouver. He has always been
prominent in labor circles, having
been for two terms secretary oi the
trades and labor council; three
times labor candidate (or alder-
manic honors in Vancouver; and
twice, in 1903 and 1907, labor candidate for the local legislature.
He entered tbe service oi the B.
C. Electric Railway Co. nine and
one half years ago, aa niotorman,
and a year and a half ago was promoted to the managership of the
company's stores on Westminster
avenue. The present promotion
came to him as an unsought expression of the confidence which
his employers repose in him.
Assistant Manager Glover commends Mr. Parry as one of the
oldest employees al present in the
service. He at all times proved
himself an able and efficient operative on the cars, and on several
occasions did excellent work as assistant traffic superintendent,previous to his appointment at the
stores. In all -jositions he has
filled, his work has proven so thoroughly satisfactory thit when the
vacancy occurred in the local managership, the company availed itself of the opportunity to express
their appreciation of Mr. Parry's
He has risen from the ranks by
dint of ability and close attention
to duty, and is considered one of
the most promising men on the
staff. His personal qualities arc
peculiarly fitting ior the post to
which he has been appointed. The
company has every confidence that
as local manager, Mr. Parry will
prove acceptable alike to themselves and to the public, to the
benefit of mutual interesti.

Books, which they wonld be pleased to deliver to the committee lor
distribution at thc Alaska-Yukon-
Pacific exposition.
Another letter Irom Mr. Murray,
requesting the council to appoint
two members on the delegation, to
proceed to Victoria, to present the
petition to the government for a
subsidy for a traffic bridge at and
Narrows. Councillors Kobson and
McNaught were appointed.
A letter was received from the
lecretary of the union oi B.C. mu
nicipalities, requesting the district
council to appoint delegates to attend the convention of the union
to be held at Vernon, on January
6th next. The reeve and Councillor McNaught were appointed.

New Ferry Service
A very important deuclopment
in ferry matters took place this
week, in the putting on of a motor
ferry service, for passengers only,
by the North Vancouver Motor
Boat Transportation Company, ol
which Messrs. W. B. Bunbury and
W. H. Braim are the controllers.
According to the promoters, the
initial purpose in inaugurating this
service was to fill in the gap left by
the reduction of the permanent
ferry service to an hourly one,both
the city council and large numbers
ol residents having repeatedly declared that an hourly service was
not adequate to the needs of this
side of thc Inlet.
The patronage extended since
the service started, on Tuesday
morning, is declared by the owners
to be very gratifying. • To the present time  an average of  350 paid
fares have been carried per day
and about 100 monthly tickets
bave been sold. The total earnings the pasttwodays were $148.05.
The flotilla comprises two large
gasoline boats, one of which will
be replaced, within a few days, by
the K'ii.a 111,1. a large double decked gasoline boat owned by Messrs.
Simpson Bros., of English Bay,
and said to be the largest and fast
est boat of ber type in B.C. waters.
In discussing the schedule, the
management emphasizes the fact
that they wish to operate the service with a view solely to public
convenience. In carrying out this
desire they have put on a boat
from North Vancouver at 7.40
I.m., for the accommodation of
high school students, and a late
boat from Vancouver at 11.40 p.m.
for theatre goers and late callers.
They have likewise inaugurated 1
straight five cent fare both ways,
in the interest of the travelling
public. The new slip just west of
the Lonsdale avenue wharf ..us
used for the first on Thursday and
for the present Vancouver terminus
will be located at Cook's slip. The
schedule calls for half hourly service up to 8. to p.m., and an hourly service from that till 11.40 p.m.
Ferry Developments
A preliminary meeting was held
last evening, to discuss the formation of a new ferry company, to
be owned and operated on this side
of the Inlet. The meeting com
prised about ten prominent citizens
and considerable progress was
mide. It was decided to proceed
at once with tbe incorporation of a
company, to be capitalized for
about $75,000, in shares of $10
each. 'I he scheme is yet in its
formative -.tages, but the promoters state that the probability is
that three fits! class, Urge gasoline
launches, capable of carry ing about
135 passengers each, will be built
and be placed upon the run at the
earliest possible date. These
launches will he of the most modern type, with attractive appointments in all respects. The engines will be so located that the
passengers will not be brought in
contact with them in any way, and
there will be no odor of burning
gasoline. They will make the trip
across the Inlet in about ten minutes and will at first sustain a
twenty-minute service.
Three boats were considered
sufficient for the present, but as
traffic increases, units in the form
of additional boats,will be increased, and the boats will likewise be
built on a larger scale, while the
service will be increased to a fifteen minute one. The originators
of the scheme propose to confine
the business to passengers only for
a time, but attention will be given
freight traffic at a later stage. The
shares will be placed at ten dollars
each, in order to place them within
the reach of all, and the promoters confideutally expect that residents on the north side of the Inlet and all non-resident property
owners may be induced to purchase shares in thc company. A
committee was appointed to proceed at once with the arrangements
ol details and the securing of the
charter for the company.

The masterful summing up of
the many and diversified elements,
whose combined significance assures to the centre of population
growing up on the shores of Burrard Inlet a future of unparalleled
possibilities, which was delivered
by Elliot S. Rowe, manager of the
Vancouver tourist and information
bureau, before the board of trade
onl uesday evening, constituted
an address ol highest excellence,
ind was listened to with rapt in
teres! by the audience.
"We (the retidents ou Hurrard
Inlet) ire engaged in two parts ol
the tame great civic undertaking,"
declared the speaker, "one of the
gteatett, I believe,as to ils results,
ev.r essayed by Canadian people,
lor when that portion of the task
allotted to this generation is completed, there will be on the shores
of Burrard Inlet the most prospet-
ous and progressive Hritish community on the Pacific ocean."
The statement of Lord Grey, to
the effect that ou this harbor is to
be located the first and most important port in all the world, was
declared to be quite justified, when
all the advantages and possibilities
of the situation were considered.
Thc advaulagas possessed by Burrard In., t, when carefully enumerated, tally to a remarkable degree
wilh those elements which are ne-
cesiary io the making, of one of
the world's greatest seaports.
The Boat notable of these advantages is probably lhe fact that
this harbor is, geographically, the
nearest possible harbor to thr
greatest wheat belt in all the world.
Burrard Iulet was shown to be no
aides nearer Edmonton than is
Prince Kupert, aud when the C.P.
R. builds through the Yellowhead
pisi and down the Thompson river, that distance will be lessened
by about forty miles, with an easy
grade, which, after reaching 4000
feet, gives a long gravitation to the
Inlet. The exaad figures are ai
follow* Prom Edmonton to Prince
Rupert, 954 miles; Irom Edmonton to Vancouver via Calgary, 834
miles: from Edmonton to Vancouver, via Yellowhead pass. 730 miles.
This advantage is momentous, not
only because of trade with the Ot-
ient, but also in view 0,' access 10
old world ports through the Panama canal.
It may be accepted as certiin
that the G.T.P. will seek connection with this harbor at the earliest
opportunity lt is characteristic
of ttansinull.icni.ils that Ihey seek
several ocean terminals, so as to
touch as many points as possible.
This has been conspicuously true
with respect to the roads to the
south, and it will likewise hold
good with regard to northern lines.
Fort George is 30 miles nearer
Prince Rupert than Vancouver, a
very insignificant item, while the
country from the Inlet to Fort
George possesses very extensive
areible areas, not to mention iti
wealth in mineral, timber, etc.
The trend of (hit immeme tnffic,
which must develop, will be this
way, because here ire the centres
of population. Here will be the
natural city for those who live between this and Fort George.
The building of the British Columbia section of the C.N.Railway
ii likewise 1 probability of the near
future. He would not be surprised to see construction begun within two yesrt. Thii line will divide the distance between the C.P.
R. and G.T.P. lines, and will
therefore all the more surely develop a country tribituary to Burrard Inlet. There will be a natural focus to thii port of the entire
development thit miy transpire in
the northern country weit of Ihe
Rocky mountains.
Further, our relations to the
southern interior of the province is
capable of being made equally satisfactory. Immediate and penis-
tent steps ihould be taken to secure a ihare of the trade of the
Okanagan,Similkameen,and Kootenay valleys. The distance from
Vincouver to Princeton by the
ihorteit feasible route isi 58 milei,
but at present one must travel a circuitous route of 700 miles to reach
that point. The public have been
tubjected to insincere treatment
with regard to communication with
this fertile country, but it is reasonable to expect thit within a
short term of years direct commit*
nication will be established.
When the All Red Route materi
alizes, this will be their Pacific
port, in which case, practically 1
of the Oriental traffic will find its
most commodious and convenient
port on Burrard Inlet.
Because of our proximity to extensive deposit! of raw   material,
our unexcelled shipping facilities,
our incalculable adjacent water-
power, our proximity to the teeming population that will find homes
in the North West provinces, the
prospects of building up a great
manufacturing centre amount to a
practical certainty. The development of our agricultural resources
will be imperative to lessen the
cost of the necessities, in order that
the wage scale may be such as to
enable our manufacturers to compete with eastern concerns.
Our position is such, declared
the speaker, that it must levy toll
on aii the prosperity of our common country.
The concluding portion of the
address made relerence to the de-
siribility of paying special attention to t'.iutiht travel,to advertising
extentively and wisely, and to the
advisibility of taking energetic and
liberal measures to reap the larg
est possible benefit from the ap*
proiching Alaska-Yukon exposi
tion at Seattle.
Board id Trade
The regular meeting ol the board
of trade was held 011 Tuesday evening. President D G. Dick presided.
The president reported that there
were 1200 signatures at present 011
the petition to the provincial government for a subsidy (01 a traffic
bridge at the Second Narrows.and
that signatures were being received
very freely. It was the intention
to presenl this petition 10 the government through a delegation about
the middle of December, in order
that an appropriation for thc purpose roght be included in the first
The transportation committee reported hiving looked into the matter of tram fares, by comparing
rates with similar localities on the
other side of lhe Inlet with the result that they were of opinion thit
present rales are excessive. On
motion of T. Nye, it wis resolved
lhat the B.C. Electric Railway
Compiny be requested to issue
white tickets in thii city, ind to
gnnt transfers from North Vincouver on one line in Vincouver
ind vice versa.
Ferry matters were briefly discussed, and it was resolved that,
in the opinion of this board, the
time is opportune for the city council to take over the Lonsdale ivenue fern whirl from the N.V.
Ferry Power Company, Limited,
under their igreement, ind to put
it into proper condition for a public whirl, ind to make it available,
under suitable regulations for the
use of ill comers, including ferry
W. B. Bunbury wis the recipient of 1 very ippropriite expression of the universal esteem in which
he is held by the local employees
of the B.C. Electric Railway,when
on Monday, they assembled it the

1 bather collar box. Mr. Bunburv
made an ippropriale reply, expres-
sitig his high ipprecntion of the
esteem of the men.
The address was read by A. N.

hold office until the membership
list has been filled up and preliminary matters arranged, when permanent officers will be elected at a
general meeting of the members.
Several propositions to grounds
were discussed, notablv the horticultural grounds; a portion of the
B.C. Electric Railway Company's
park adjacent to the athletic
grounds, md 1 location on 10th
street, eist o( Lonsdale. It was
estimated that about {500 will be
required to clear the ground and to
construct a proper bowling green
ind tennis court. The initiil
membership fee was not fixed, but
it was intimited that it would pro-
bibly be five dollars, after which a
nominal monthly lee will be charg-
ed. The committee will cmvass
for members and look into the sev-
eril propositions is to grounds,ind
report at a meeting to be announced liter.
It wis thought that the city
would this vear be entitled to six
school trustees instead of three.but
upon making the statutory computation it was found that the attendance fell short ol the required total
by one-filth of one per cent. Consequently there is but one trustee
to be elected at the approaching
civic elections.
S. W. Thacker and C. C. Thornton returned early this week Irom
Tacoma, where they celebrated
thanksgiving with friends.

A rich mineral discovery basbcen
made right nt tlie doors o( North
Vincouver iod, though the spot
lus been known to hundreds lor
\e.us, u*l it is only now that the
I.il, nl wealth there contained has
btCOtlia known
I Line weeks ago, Joe Saulter,
he who located tbe Hank ol Vancouver poop on Seymour creek,
ami who is one of the most experi
need ind sncceMfvl prospectors
in tin* province accompanied by
Dr. Poole ami J. Sbupe, of Vancouver, located a group ol live
claims on Seymour creek. Thc
location ol the claims is on the
west side oi the creek, just three
miles from the end of the Vancou
ver waterworks wagon road. The
discovery was made on the huge
red colored bluff that overlooks
the creek, lhe color being the oxidisation of the mineral beneath.
Tbe discovery, though having
the walls of a well-defined ledge, is
so extensive as to amount practically to a mountain of ore. The
capping is of iron, being very similar to that of the Kossland camp.
The ore is a regular pyrrhotite,
carrying copper pyrites right to
the surface. Assays from the surface give 1'; per cent copper, with
traces of gold and silver. Several
shots have been put into tbe surface and where this has been done,
iniicli better ore has been exposed.
Beneath the capping, the presence
of copper is much more pronounced, the assays showing 3 per cent
copper, and pay values in gold an,'
Location was made under difti
culties, as the bill slopes away at
an almost bo percent grade. Fivt
claims were located, tbe grou]
bring known as the Canadian Cou
soliilaled, the locations being named 1, 2. 3, 4 and 5. The old Lil
looet trail runs below the location
about a mile distant, a connecting
trail having been made from this
to the group. The property will
be easiiv worked, as the slope will
give easv access by means ol tun
nels. Then* is an unlimited de
posit of the ore in sight and every
where tested it proves to be sell-
Discovery had hardly been made
before the lucky owners had been
offereJ a high figure for the group,
under tbe terms uf a working bond,
but this was declined. However,
the owners stated this week that
they are now negotiating a deal,
whereby a substantial sum of money will be paid down,and a system
of development carried on on an
extensive scale.
Since the discovery of tbe Canadian Consolidated, other parties
bave located extensions, one of tbe
claims being known as Old Inland
and another Star of Hope. Hoth
of these hive fine showings ol ore.
The sites ol these discoveries can
be 'reached   in  a return   journey
from North Y.n iverol less than
six hours.
the momei.t was uot considered
opportune for such negotiations.
The present debt of the city is
1327,000, and the statutory loaning power is $000,000. The committee had decided to recommend
that the city and the district purchase the ferry by forming a new
company, and investing J35,ooo
each, but in view of recent developments, it was considered unwise
that the city should take the initiative, because it was thought
probable that it would not be long
under present conditions until tbe
ferry company would approach the
city council, with a view to selling,
in which case a much better purchase could be made.
The opinion was expressed that
the association should pass a vote
of thanks to Messrs. lltinbiiry and
Brain for putting on a second
ferry service and that the citizens
should all support them in their
venture. Mr. Ilunbiiry considered
competition the proper treatment
o( the ferry problem, and if it develops that neither company can
handle it satisfactorily, then another company should be interest-
d which could.
Nominations for civic offices

The secretary will forward copies
of the resolutions to the respective
nominees, and notify them that
each will be given five minutes on
Tuesday evening next in which to

to residents of the citv, and that
no Orientals b" employed upon llie
