"In whom is the ownership and
the control ol the bridge lo be

were this item satisfaclorilv adjusted, the bridge would be as
good as an accomplished (act.
It was upon some proposed solutions of this difficulty thai
the premier lound it seceeaary
to express himself with considerable diTniiiettess, questioning
iheir feasibility,
As the interview advanced, it
became   evident   that   the plan
111..st acceptable to the government is that of a bridge,provin-
ciallv owned and controlled,but
thai, at the same time, lhe government was not prepared to
give any assurance that the en-
lire cost would be assumed bv
the provincial treasury.       The
dominion government has  al-
ttady voted a subsidy of $2do,-
000 toward the building of a
bridge, and the intimation was
conclusively carried to the
minds of the delegation that il
that subsidv could be made to
applv to a  provincial railway
Wallace Shipyards, Limited,desiring to have the necessary Idling done as ipiickly as possib
and seeing an opportunity to
secure the deepening of the
water in front of tlieir ways at
the same time, made application to the local Liberal BSBOCi-
ation to have the King Edward,
then lying idle in the Fraser
river, sent around to do the
work. The association promptly passed thc requisite ibboIu
tion, forwarded il through tin*
proper channels, and nothing
further was heard until llie
dredge appeared.    II lllis rivill
Bean upon the part of the g->< -
eminent lo assist North Vancouver iind tin- north shore will
but extend itself to the granting
of the bridge subsidv to a pro

municipalities concerned will

The sessions of city councils

prosy stage, and arc usually not
particularly interesting to  the
and irallic bridge, the local gov-1 citizens, except as some mallet

I Intel North Vancouver
Pronounced activity is to be
noted in mining circles relative
lo the mineral resources adjacent to Nortli Vancouver, and
the coming summer gives every
assurance of being the must
lively vet experienced in whai
is destined to be one of the
most Important camps in British Columbia.
It is seitii-oHiiiallv given mil
that the Tvee Mining iV Smell
ing Co., operating ou Valiiouver Island, have secured control
of the Swayne group ol claims,
at the head of Lynn creek, and
are prepared tn operate the
propertv on an extensive si ale
lt ii*' stated that loo men will
be engaged within the nexl ho
days and every eflort made lo
put the group on the permanent
shipping list. A thorough lesi
and examination was aaderta-
ken bv the Tvee people and ihey
are well satisfied with the result. A diamond drill has proven up the ore bodies, ami il
will lie further used to prove up
newer ground.
The development work being
done at the mine has demonstrated the ore bodies lo be permanent, while the values are
steadily improving with depth.
The ore is a copper gold proposition and several thousand
tons have alrca.lv been blocked
out. The product of the mine
will   be   handled   by   electric
tramline down the valle\ to
tidewater at Burrard Inlet,
whence it will be taken in barges to the company's smelter at
Ladvsmith. There is every indication of the property tuning
out one of the biggest propositions in the province.
On the west fork of Seymour
creek, in close proximity to the
B mk of Vancouver group, Capt.
Cates and associates pusses a
wonderful deposit of copper-
gold ore, under the name in the
woodland group. This property
has lately come under the I ml
ral ol a syndicate of capitalists
in Glasgow, Scotland. A I und
has been taken nn the group,
after a comprehensive  teal   of
the ure had been made, together
with an examination oi   the
An inquire has just been received Iron- the lompain, as to
the depth of snow on the creek,
and whether it is possil.l. t..
lake   in   supplies.       They   are
anxious to commence development immediately and, ones
started, will continue same in
an energetic manner. The iiun-
paliy had also figured on plans
for constructing a tramline, to
connect the property wiih a
shipping point mi Howe Bound.
Tlieir attention, however, has
been drawn to the advertised
plans of the projected electric
line up Si'viiiuiir creek from
Nortli Vancouver, which, when
built, will pass within a stone's
throw of their ground. The cumpaiiy has sent KM Copies oi lite
map recently published In The
Express, giving an outline   uf
the route of the prnpused line.
The railway will save the cuin-
pany a large amount of money
relative to a tramline, and il
will give them a splendid outlet for shipping ore. The Scotch
bonders aaserl ilu\ will put the
propert) oa a shipping basis as
quickly as possible.

ihe wme liiiie, tin- meeting a-
naiiilliollsly expressed itself di -
finitely   in   lavor   of   ultimate
municipal control of the   set
On Mondav evening, the mayor atiliiiittiied that  the lUCCtiBg
..[ tin- citi/ens, arranged for tha
tad of Fchtuarv, would not he
held. I do not know whv this
announcement was in.,.1,-, us the
resolution simply called  lor   a
report  as t" whether the   citv
had done anything or nothing
in the direction Indicated, .nni .1
I. port  [rolii  the iitv COUSCil to
the meet ilie; that    BOthiflg   had
heen done would have heen    ut
order, and could have heen   ,1. t
ed upon.
Relying upon tin- mayor's
statement    ih.it   no   meeting
Would lie held iw lliiil 11,is   dul,
announced by the mayor in the
newspapers 1, I, myself, and
many other citi/i-ns did not attend ;it the pavilion on Tuesdav
It transpires now, from reports of the local papers, thai
in spite of the announcement of
the mayor, a small meeting was
held, and opened by the mayor
himself, at which most of the
citizens who were present at
the meeting of the previous
week were not present. The
promoters, however, of the new
ferry coinpanv were presenl,
with some of their friends, ainl
harmless resolutions were passed with regard to the formation
of the new Ierry company.
The question of municipal
ownership, which had lum I,.-
vorablv decided upon bv the
previous meeting, was, accord
ing to the reports, set aside as
being contrary to the views of
the meeting,
Owing to the statement of
the mavor as to the postponement of the meeting, its nsolu
tiotis cannot in- regarded .is in
.HIV sense expressing *|u. views
of the majority of the citt/eiis,
although  the second   meeting
constitutes technically an adjourned continuation of the
first. The second meeting,lum
cur, was adjourned at the call
ol the chair, and I wish to
poinl out that it is ol imperative Importance that tin- matt-
lag so adjoin in-il should be called at the earliest pnssible nm
