in rm t \PBi-»,s
Aldermen May, Irwin, Crickmay
and Braim were present at the
meeting ol the city council on
Monday evening, Mayor Kealy
Walter Owen wrote.to the effect
that a leaky water pipe on the adjoining lot was causing liim annoyance, because the waste water runs
under his building ; thi water
committee to act.
T.A.Martin wrote withrelerence
to the proposed improved postal
facilities. Council considered a
Iree delivery in the city the greatest desirability, and laid the communication on the table for action
Alex. Philip advised council ol
the action of thn district council
in resolving to grant fourteen days
for the deposit of bonds with the
bank as requested. The letter of
the city solicitor was read,advising
that unless the district would accept the bonds in payment of the
debt,he considered it notadtisable
that the bonds be deposited as requested,as they would thus be tied
up with no corresponding advantage to the city. Alderman May
stated that the district had intimated its willingness to concede the
right ol the city to sell the bonds
at any time. The letter of the
district purporting to agree to this
was read. Mayor Kealy read the
resolution ol the finance committee
and adopted by the council, to the
effect that the city will deposit
>iu,nnu in bonds, reserving the
right to sell the same at any time.
The city is endeavoring to accord
the district every possible consideration. Aid. May remarked that
the district council considered tin,-
mm insulin lent. Aid.Irwin thought
that the matter should be relerred
at once to tne* city solicitor, as ilie
city council had offered to do all
that they could do, and, as Ior further developments, matters must
take their course. Aid. Crickmay
saul that it was unfoitunate that
matters should take this turn, just
when, after prolonged effort, the
city was succeeding in paying some
of the debt. He concurred with
Aid. Irwin as to referring the matter to the solicitor. The mayor
repeated that the finance committee
had gone very carefully into the
matter, and the council was trying
lo do its best, but il the district
was not satisfied with this,nothing
more could bc done. Aid. Braim
suggested that it might be well to
appoint a committee toconlerwith
a committee of the district council
in the matter, and he moved that
Aldermen Irwin, Crickmay and the
mover be such a committee. Carried.
J. R. J. Murray, secretary ol the
special audit committee, wrote, to
the effect that the committee considered that an omission had
occurred, in that the balance sheet
ol the special auditors was not
published along with the reports,
and asked that these, together
with the report of the special
auditors, the city auditor's balance
sheet for 1907, and an accompanying letter from the city solicitor,
be published. The letter referred
to by the committee was read, and
stated that, in the opinion of the
city solicitor, clause 67 of the municipal clauses act, must be interpreted in harmony with the other
clauses ol the act, and advising
that the position of the city
auditors as to what constitutes a
city's income is incorrect, while
that ol the special auditors is correct. Aid. Irwin observed that the
publication ol the schedules would
be a very expensive undertaking.
The special auditors' report shewed
that all amounts expended were
properly vouched for, and that the
books were so kept that all facts
were easily arrived at. To effect
any radical change in the system
ol bookkeeping followed by the
city, would cost several thousand
dollars, and the expense was not
advisable at present. The matter
was laid over and reverted to later.
A lengthy discussion took place,
the mayor forcibly observing that
the city auditor advised the council in one way and the city solicitor
in a way directly opposed. Now
the question is 1 what action is the
council to take ? It was finally
decided that the only feasible way
out of the dilemma, is to employ a
lirm of chartered accountants to
act as arbitrator auditors, and the
probable cost of this is tobeascer
tained. The special audit com
mittee is also to be requested to
state upon what additional grounds,
if any.they wish action to he taken,
with reference to the reports.
Mr. Fell wrote, to the effect that
the owners of the abutting property were not prepared to survey
their hall of the 66 feet for the extension of Sutherland avenue Irom
Keith road to 14th street, and consequently he would be compelled
to clear the avenue along the west
one-half, instead of in the centre,
board of works to report.    ,
S. D. Green-Armytage wrote,
agreeing to provide the plank for
a walk to his residence, il the city
will haul and lay the same ; board
of works to act.
H. Hutchison complained strenuously of the wretched condition
of affairs existing on 3rd street, as
the septic lank overflow runs into
the trench where the water pipes
are being lowered. The mayor
characterized the conditions as
scandalous, and as remaining un
remedied in the face of his express
orders and those of the health officer. Matter to be investigated
and dealt with Thursday evening,
meantime the difficulty is to be obviated.
The city solicitor returned the
draft of the proposed agreement
with the Ierry company, with certain memoranda ; received.
The matter of the exemption of
the church ol St. John the Evangelist Irom the local improvement
assessment was referred to the city
solicitor for his opinion.
A plan of sub-division for lot 3,
block 31, laid over at last nictiiug,
was approved.
The finance committee recommended payment of the following
accounts : Police $309.75, school
$1178.95, board of works $767.01,
water committee $465,112, fire and
ight $164.32, board of health $25,
adopted ; board of works, under
local improvement by-law $2820,
adopted, subject to arrangements
therelor being made with the bank.
The medical health officer's report for past four months shpwed
five cases of chicken pox and one
of measles. Nine notices ol
nuisance were served.    Filed.
Minutes of a meeting of the
waterworks committee were read,
recommending that a two inch
wooden pipe be laid along Kidge-
way to 25th street, and that connection be made with the houses
of E. H. Cardman, W. H. Wise,
and C. M. Woodrow ; tabled for
one week for estimate of cost.
Aid. Braim reported, that owing
to the arrival of the wet weather,
the reservoir for reducing the pressure at Kidgeway and 19th, would
not be required until spring ;
Minutes of a meeting of the
finance committee were read, recommending with relerence to the
remitting ol taxes in lavor of the
athletic association, that the council has no power to comply with
the request ; adopted.
Aid. Irwin suggested that in view
of the approaching winter season,
it would be advisable that sidewalk
work be given precedence over
other work on the streets ; council
The engineer's report with reference to a sidewalk on the north
side ol Victoria park,will be ready
lor consideration Thursday evening.
Upon motion of Aldermen May
and Irwin, the assessment rolls
were made returnable on Monday,
October 19th.
Alderman Crickmay,as chairman
of the fire and water committee,
reported affairs in the lire department are not in a satisfactory condition. The brigades do not turn
out to practice, and matters generally are in a condition that calls
Ior decisive action. A meeting ol
the firemen will be held on Wednesday evening, of which all the
members have been notified. The
fire committee was instructed to
attend the meeting to investigate.
Court of revision of voters'
will be held November 2nd.
Choral Society
A number of the musical people
in town are planning to have a
choral society formed, to begin the
rehearsal of good choral works, at
an early date. Such a society
would indeed be a welcome addition to others of a different nature which already exist here. In
a lown with a population of 3000,
there ought to be ample material
for getting up a good body of singers, for there are many, doubtless,
who, though not giving their services in any of the church choirs,
have been blessed with the gift of
song and have a sufficient knowledge of music to make them valuable members ol a choral society.
Great Britain's unique position at
the present day in the domain of
choral music is almost entirely due
to the existence, in nearly every
village of some choral body.
The American nation are now
just realizing this, and with their
characteristic energy are doing all
they can to diffuse correct ideas
about this most important factor
in civil life, for they see that not
only is there here an immense
field lor artistic pleasure, but that
the study of the compositions of
the greatest musicians by many
thousands of individuals has a
most ennobling influence on the
conduct of a community. It would
seem that one ol the crying needs
in this western country is to have
some recognized influence, both ol
an educative and refining nature,
which would regulate, il not check,
the absorbing pursuit of the almighty dollar, to the neglect of
the finer instincts of one's nature.
A choral society in the town would
be greatly appreciated, both by
singers and listeners; as it w>mld
be quite undenominational, the
active support of all musical people would be heartily welcomed.
A meeting ol all interested will be
held at an early date, ol which

Preacher and Bear
Lynn Valley
Mr. Bailey and family have taken
up their residence in the house
recently completed on D. L. 2003.
adjoining the property of Councillor McNaught.
A couple of residents iu the valley, while cutting wood along the
plank road, a day or two ago, had
a surprise visit from a young bear.
A fight between the contending
forces was postponed to a later
The Lynn Valley Lumber Company expect to begin to cut logs
this week, from the new berth
recently opened up around the
spur ol the mountain. The new
road gives access to a large quantity ol extra choice timber, and
Manager I-'minim- expects to turn
out lumber that cannot be surpassed anywhere.
B C Electric Improvements
Improvements to the value of
$300,000 are to be effected by the
B. C. Electric Co. at their power
station on the North Arm. The
hydraulic power house, which is
built of stone, is to be extended
another 60 feet, and extra machinery is to bc installed capable of
generating 10,000 horse power of
electrical energy. To supply this
two additional pipe lines will be
run Irom the dam at Lake Buntzen
to the power house.
This week the company awarded
a contract lor the installation of a
new turbine wheel at thc power
house. It has a capacity of 11,000
horsepower and is ol the Doble
type, one of the most successful
wheels in operation today. The
contract was awarded to the John
McDougall Co., Montreal.
Court of Revision
The city council sat as a court
of revision Monday evening, on
the proposed improvements on
Mh street. William Morden, as
owner ol certain lots in the locality
took exception to the assessment
as submitted and requested some
changes to make it equitable. The
wardens of the church of St. John
the Evangelist wrote, requesting
lhat the church ptopeity be exempt from the assessment. The
court adjourned for one week, in
order that these matters might be
looked into carefully.
The pastor ol one of the local
churches is now able to affirm from
experience that the sensations are
entirely distinct, which arise (rom
viewing the bears in Stanley Park
at a distance ol a few feet, with
substantial barriers between, and
being brought face to face with the
real thing at a distance of a lew
paces, in his native haunts. Upon
returning on Tuesday evening
about dusk Irom the outskirts of
the city, whence his duties liad
called him, and traversing an old
skid road, he was somewhat disconcerted (not to be accused o(
extravagance in choice of terms)
by suddenly finding himself standing within about ten paces of a good
sized black bear. Bruin appeared
somewhat inclined to dispute the
passage of the roadway, but with
admirable presence of mind the
worthy pastor laid hold of a good
sized bolder stone and hurled it
forcefully at the brute, and the
aforesaid stone coming in contact
with a telephone wire, so startled
the bear that he gave a grunt(doubt-
less ol (ear) and beat an orderly,
but highly satisfactory, retreat, to
all parties, into the bush. Accepting the authenticity of the Biblical
narrative, that a certain worthy ol
old slew a lion, in a pit on a snowy
day, the hero of this adventure feels
that these new and unsought laurels are altogether becoming his
person and calling.

The meeting held at No. 1 fire-
hall Wednesday evening to consider what steps can be taken to

N0R111 Vamcouvm, Sir. in, 1908
A word in season, with reference
to the necessity lor traffic accommodation, in connection with tht
proposed Inidge across second
narrow-, w.is spoken by Mayor
Kealv at the opening ol thc Horticultural exhibition. Following the
remarks of Hon. F. Is. Carter Cotton with relerence to the agricultural possibilities ol the district,
and the unlimited market lor our
proiHia', ,,;:,,1 |ed by Vancouver,
the mayoi took occasion to observe
thnt the immense traffic that w.is
di stmeil to gruw up between the
two eommunitiat on both shores
of Burrard Inlet, rendered it in tin
highest deflflt imperative that
adcquiiti provision be made, in th
■ instruction of thfl bridge, (or the
■iiinn l.itton ol that traffic, in
all its (onus and at all limes. It
was h.iped, therefore, that in the

may bc maintained that even such
grunts us li.ivi lit. 11 mi* e lu ll e
diatrii 1 have heen moie linn re-
p tid ill ill coiisiriiclion and maintenance ol these roads, and that
therefore the government is to be
credited with practically no expenditures in this district to date. Inasmuch as North Vancouver constitutes, by 1 great ileal, lhe more
mportint portion of the electoral
riding in which it is included, it is
not unreasonable to expect that,
under existing conditions, the
government will give its appeal
favorable consideration.
The cast then stands somewhat
as lollows : Because it is as clear
as sunlight to every man who gives
the matter intelligent consideration, that a combined railway and
traffic bridge across Burrard Inlet
at second narrows is but a logical
product ol thc situation, a necessary adjunct to the dew l.ipnictttof
the territory contiguous to the
best harbor and the largest centre
ol population in British Columbia;
because of the large area ol agricultural and fruit lands, as well as
the immense resources in mineral
and timber, that will be tributary
to the bridge ; because of the teeming population that is destined to
occupy the territory on both sides
of the Inlet, whose needs will be
met by such a bridge ; because the
district of Nortli Vancouver (which
may be said to be most immediately
concerned in the construction ol
the bridge) has indisputable right
under existing conditions, to favorable consideration at the hands of
tin provincial government, in the
matter ol money grants ; because
the project, as outlined.commands
ami receives the strong support of
adjacent niiinicipalitics.coiiiprising
the greater portion of the population of thfl coast districts of Hritish
Columbia, ami practically one-half
of thfl entire revenue producing
population ol the province ; he-
cause the btidgfl will bc, in the
strictest and fullest sense, a public
work of the most pennanent character and the most extended use-
l,,l„. aa « vulualile asset to tlie
province as such. Because of
these and other considerations, it
is confidently anticipated that the
government of British Colombia
will place the realization of the
si Inllie beyond all peradventure,
by voting an adequate subsidy for
the traffic features of the Second
Narrows bridge.
This diitrict is fortunate in
having, in the person ol its representative in the local legislature, a
man ol acknowledged ability, a
man ol wide experience in political
affairs in British Columbia, ami ol
ligh standing and great influence

Interesting Statement by Inspector Cunningham
An interesting statenrint ol llie
development of the fruit growing
industry in llritisli Columbia was
made this week by Thomas Cunningham, provincial fruit inspec
tor. For two months he has been
at work among the orchards on
Vancouver Island. He was in
Vancoiiver over Sunday and on
Monday he returned to lhe Island
to continue his labors.
In 14 years Mr. Cunningham
says the money invested iu ftuit
growing has increased from ti,-
000,000 to upwards of $15,000,000.
Of general conditions ol the industry he says :—"California fruit
this year has been particularly
dangerous. It seems that codltn
moth lias been more in evidence
this year than lor a long time,
despite efforts made to counteract
it by the introduction of predacious
insects. Last Saturday we had
condemned in Victoria 1,800 cr.ses
of Iruit, and like proportions iu
In contrast to California, 1 may
say that Washington fruit is very
free from insect pests tins year.
This 1 attribute to the strict legislation of that state dealing with
the matter. There anyone found
distributing infected Iruit in any
way is liable to a fine of not less
than tso for the first offence, or
$200 or two years' imprisonment
for the second. Washington is
our closest competitor, and British
Columbia cannot afford to take
lower ground than that State in
the protection of fruit."
Mr. Cunningham continued that
a short time ago he met a gentleman who was enquiring lor 75,000
boxes of apples lor export to Australia, but the only condition on
which lie would purchase them
was that they should be guaranteed
to be absolutely free from insect
pests or disease. He believed that
he had succeeded in obtaining that
supply because in the gieater part
ol biitish Columbia we were Iree
liom such pests or disease as would
diMqualify the ftuit from entering
"1 have been absent on Vancouver Island for two months having
the orchards cleaned up. I find
that all intelligent fruit growers
are cooperating most cordially.
Our trouble is mostly with larmers
who grow a little Iruit and pay
very little attention to their trees.
1 expect at the next session ol the
legislature that the horticultural
act will be so amended as to compel careless people owning Iruit
trees to keepthem in such condition
that they will not be a menace to
the enterprising fruit grower. The
hope of liriiish Columbia is the
man who makes fruit growing a
We had a meeting of the Horticultural Board last week,and Irom
the data furnished we find the investment in fruit growing in British
Columbia today has reached the
enormous sum of $15,000,000. lt
is reasonable to expect that within
the next five years this will have
increased 100 per cent., so that
you can easily understand the importance of protecting this industry
by all lawful means. I was never
so much impressed with the necessity ol keeping our doors closed
against the importations ol all infected trees and Iruit.
I am glad to notice that the importations of fruit into Victoria
are (ailing off, and the market is
fairly well supplied with very superior local Iruit. L predict a
great increase in the acreage under
Iruit on Vancouver Island during
coming year. Land there is far
too valuable to be devoted to raising grain and hay. I viewed one
Iruit orchard in Saanich and re
monstrated with the lady who
owned it lor growing oats under
the trees. She said that land was
so valuable now that they required
to get all the revenue they could
out of it. I asked her how much
the Iruit orchard yielded last year,
and she said a little over J400 an
acre, while a field of oats adjoining
yielded $30 an acre. I take this
as an indication of the folly of devoting first-class fruit land to growing inferior crops of grain.
This has been a very dry season
on the island, but where the orchards have been cultivated and
the ground kept clean, the Iruit is
very fine. In orchards where the
land is in grass or grain the fruit
is shrivelled and inferior, and Ihe
trees have mad1; practically no
growth. What is true of Vancouver   Island is true ol the whole ol

British Columbia. No man has a
right to expect a crop of grain and
a crop of fruit from the same soil.
Another thing 1 was pleased (0
note in reference to Vancouver Island was lhat the fruit was exceedingly well packed, lu this respect
the Victoria Fruit Exchange is
doing excellent work. No badly
packed box of fruit is permitted to
be shipped from their establishment, and they are realizing very
good prices in consequence,
I am returning to the Island to
complete the campaign of orchard
cleaning, and may have something
more to give to you on my return.
1 wish again to express my gratitude to the press for the generous
support they have given the department. You see that we have
increased from less than 1*3,000,-
0110 investment in fruit growing in
1894 to over $15,000,000 in 1908.
For this I am naturally very proud
and thankful, because in the ad-
i am enn ni ol horticulture we are
not depleting the wealth of the
country as some other industries
tlo, but on the other hand we are
adding to Us permanent resources.
