GRADE    CONTROVERSY
(Continued from Page 1)
the matter settled once and for
all."
Alderman Irwin : "Your Worship, you refused the advice ol
your engineer."
Alderman Irwin moved, see
oiided by Alderman Smith,
that the matter of changing
the grade on Lonsdale Ave be
further discussed 011 Thursday
evening.   The motion carried
On Thursday evening the
council chamber represented 4
debating cluh as at that meeting the ratepayers' opinions on
the changing ol grades had been
invited.
The lull council was present
lie-sides a large quots ol ratepayers. Letters were read Irom
Jlessrs. W. E. Thompson, J.
\V. Home and the Nortli Vancouver Land & Imp. Co. rt the
proposed change in grades,
Mr. Thompson prole-sled
against any change being made
to a terrace scheme ivhich'
would not only damage the permanent owners, but would Ix- i
unsuitable for a business street
and car line and make haulage
all the more diflicult, as llie
grades between streets would
be increased. In his letter Mr.
Home thought that the present
grade on the east side oi Lonsdale Avenue about right as il
stood at present.
The Nortli Vancouver Land
St Improvement Company recorded as their opinion the following reasons why it wa.s undesirable to make any change
in the grades : (a) It would entail a considerable expense at a
I very inconvenient lime ; (bj
lhe advantages would In- nil,
it would not make the appear.
.mee of the cross streets any
[better ; (c) the gratle on Loiis-
j du.li* Ave. is quite great enough
I at present without making it
greater and so increasing the
difliculties of transportation,
both in the tram line and teaming ; (d) the proposed change
will undoubtedly Iny the council open to action lor damages
which arc certain to be
brought."
Several minutes relative lo
the grades ol former councils
were read which disclosed the
fact   that   there   were   several
glades given. Thc council then
invited the opinion ol the ratepayers present, the mayor making clear the lads belore discussion and slating thai il was
surprising lhat objection
ihould lie taken to the same at
so late a date, as Ibis question
had been before the council for
soiiie nine and had appeared in
lhe papers.
Mr. G,  A.   McBain  was  the
lirsl   to respond to the invitation, aud emphatically declared
himsell   as opposed to   terrace
grades lor Lonsdale Ave.     He
believed that a straight   grade
for Lonsdale Ave. stood fuvor-
I ably   in the minds of the majority and  was certainly   very
, line,
I Alderman .lorden thought it
was a great mistake thai ratepayers did not take more interest in council meetings and attend regularly and help thc Al-
ildmen in leading questions.
Mr. Walter Owen : "Has professional advice ken asketl regarding bench grades ou Lonsdale Ave. ?"
Mayor 1 "Yes, several—Mr.
Clement and others."
Mr. Owen : "Have you laken
their opinion ?"
Mayor : "Yes ; they considered that Lonsdale Ave. would be
belter with bench grades."
Mr. Murray : "Is Home's
building being erected on new
or old grades ?"
Alderman Dick: "The new-
grade."
Mr. Murray : "I am not in
lavor ol professional advice altogether as each man has an
opinion ol his own. Terrace
grades in Vancouver have been
abandoned. We should go by
the experience ot other cities,
and they are not adopting the
terrace grade system."
Mr. C. McKcUiic : "Have lasl
year's minutes ol grades Ik-cii
considered ?"
The Mayor : "The grades ou
Lonsdale Avenue an- not the
same. Can any one show ine
where there arc any grades ?"
Mr. Morden : "How much do
you propose in raise- the south
side ol 1'iist street on Loiis-
dale Ave ?"
Engineer   I.«utit :    "Twenty-
two inches."

The Mayor also gave his reasons for giving the casting vote
in favor of the new grade.
Alderman Crickmay favored
the straight grade.
Alderman Irwin, chairman of
lhc Board of Works, went fully
into the pros and eons of the
dillerent grades, and also his
reasons (or favoring a straight
grade. He quoted several sections of thc Municipal Clauses
Act relating to powers of councils in such matters. He Ih--
lieved that the majority of

that since the liu.1 meeting ol

and had come lo the Conclusion
in view of the lact thul the
council was divided and the
ratepayers had taken tin active
interest in the establishment ui I
a permanent grade on I.onsilanl
Avenue that the. only feasible
way out of the dijliculty was to

the people. Tlie mayor said
that it was a question thai

understood that if the council

make a political issue al the

that was the cane as eaeh 0U*

If you know anything about the construction of good Pianos
you will know that when you are offered a
FULL SIZE CABINET GRAND PIANO
with ivory keys, mouse proof pedals, action fitted with brass
phalanges, all real wood, and (jiidrdnted for 10 years by the
makers, that you are within reach of an exceptional good
bargain. It is impossible to enumerate all the good points of
these instruments in a small ad., so
COME TO OUR  PIANO  PARLORS
and wc will guarantee you a surprise when you hear the tone
and see the quality of the piano we are offering at this price.
We are agents for the Singer Piano Company; a firm who
have been making pianos since 1884, and who have sold over
