Is the Question of the Hour with North Vancouverites—Opinions For and Against Special Charter—Friday's Voting
Will Decide the Fate of North Vancouver.
S. Gouau, City Clark, Nanaimo;
I am fully uf the opinion thai incorporation under the general act
is ii) be preferred to a special
charter. Perhaps the strongest
reason that I can advance is the
experience of this city, we have
worked under the general act since
the incorporation of the city in the
year 1H74, and it has lieen found
quite satisfactory, the powers conferred on the council are sufficient
for good government, Of course,
I do nol say that the act is
entirely perfect, and that it will lit
every case exactly, but it will fairly
meet all reasonable requirements.
Our council has on many occasions
made recommendations to the
Legislative comiiiiitee, suggesting
changes. Sometimes they have
been granted, and at other times
they have been set aside; but, in
view of the union of the muiiici
cipalities of the province lately
formed, it is likely that the municipal iicl will be put on a more
satisfactory looting than at present.
Considering llie mailer, l do not
think you will make any mistake
if you incorporate under the
general act.
Gordon IL. Connoiii.11, New
Westminster! I am strongly of
opinion that it would be far better
for a new municipality to work
under the general municipal
clauses act, If you get a special
charter there is sure to be something omitted, and every amendment costs considerable money,
whereas, if you want any special
clause you can always get the
government io amend the inuiii-
1ip.1l act without costing your
municipality anything. Another
aui,muge in working under the
municipal clauses act is Unit there
have already been decisions on
lie.il Iy every clause, and you  can
tell  thereby  what  interpretation
has he, it put on each clause.
Will IA M T. STKIN, Vancouver:
Then-are two points which your
Committee should consider in this
matter. The lirst is the powers
which the new city wishes to
obtain, and secondly, the cost of
each of the proposed methods. I
have had wide experience among
ihe different municipalities in the
province, and at the present time
very lew, if any ol them, are satisfied with the general municipal
net. In proof ol this, l would refer you to the Reeves' Convention,
one of the principal objects of
which is to obtain amendments to
the general act. Practically,
each municipality desires special
amendments lor itself, but the including ol these in a general act
would be very undesirable. This
is evident by the number of
amendments presented and rejected
at each session of Parlinment. On
the other hand, if the municipality
obtains a private charter it has the
advantage of the experience of
oilier municipalities as incorporated in the general act, and
has also the advantage of being
able to incorporate in its private
charier, the most desirable feature
at present appearing in the charters
ol other cities. I would also point
out that under a private charter a
citv can and has, as in the case ol
Vancouver, ojtaincd better protection against the encroachments
and general charters,
expense ol incorporating under the
existing general act would be,
approximately, $1000.00, and the
municipality would require to be
represented at each session ol
pariiment to watch that no amendments were introduced which might
affect it adversely. Amendments
are made at each session of parliment, and unless the municipality
is prepared to object to them,' on
the spur of the moment, it may
find clauses introduced into the
act which would be very detrimental to the city. It is 110 satisfaction to know that other municipalities suffer equally. The cost
of any private bill would be practically the same as the cost of obtaining a special charter, so that the
whole question resolves itself to
either the general act as it stands
subject to amendments each year,
or a special charter, subject to such
amendments as the municipality
applies for. The private charier
will cost probably, $2000.00 more
to obtain, and approximately,
$250.00 year imore to keep up-to-
date than the general act, but 1 consider this expenditure will save (be
municipality many other expenses,
as the differences between the
powers are so great. 11 the municipality decides to apply for a
special charter 1 shall be pleased "^v'y. ■.
to submit several suggestions for
the consideration of your coin
mittec, which will have the effect
of enabling the municipality to
make permanent improvements at
a much smaller cost than is
possible either under the general
act ,.r under the Vancouver city
A. I). Taylor, Solicitor (or the
Municipality of North Vancouver;
1 beg to say that in my opinion a
special chillier should be applied
for. This was my opinion at the
outset, and Ihe more \ have looked
into the matter and the more information I have obtained since
this question came up, the more 1
am confirmed in this opinion.
The extra cost of a special charter
will not be so great as has been
staled, and this extra expense will,
I think, be more than made up by
the advantages which a special
charier will afford by avoiding tin
present unsatisfactory state of the
general act, and in a direct
pecuniary way by enhancing the
value of the city's securities. As
to the extra cost, I do not think
that it will exceed fifteen hundred
Joseph Martin, Vancouver: 1
have carefully considered the question of obtaining incorporation for
a portion of the municipality of
Nortli Vancouver. In my opinion
it would not be advisable at present
to apply for a special charter lor
the proposed city. I understand
that the government contemplates
revising the general municipal act,
and, il so, it is quite possible that
all special charters may be abolished in accordance with the prac-
ticein the province of Ontario. In
any event, I should think that the
new city could get along lor a while
with the same laws as the city of
Victoria. I understand that it bad
been intended to apply for a special act to incorporate the new city
is a private act. and that gome ol
ol large corporations, than is given I the   incorporators   thought   that
under tbe general act. As regards
the expense ol the two methods,
the private charter will probably
cost about $3000.00, but if you
have once obtained a charter you
know exactly what power you have
and tin i'
when the expense ol a private ael
hail to be incurred thev might just
as well go to somewhat more expense and get a charier ol then
own. I might point out, however,
that it is not necessary to go to

$2000.00. This would be an]Go'vcrnor-in-Couiicil. This is
expense of $400.00 a year, and chapter 143 of the Revised
would keep your charter.far inl Statutes. It has, however, not

charters which are amended Imp- (cities are concerned, to make
hazard on ihe vote of a council, win) 1 use of this Statute, but instead
have sell.un, if ever, studied the j thereof, the government have been
whole charter and compared ii in the habit ol introducing a public
with tho powers under other special I act for the purpose of bringing b
proposed city under the provisions
of the municipal act, A recent instance of this is the incorporation
of the city of Phoenix, which was
incorporated by chapter 2H ol the
statutes ol iqoo. Nearly all of the
cities which have sprung to existence in recent years, such as Uev-
elstoke, Kossland, Grand Forks,
Greenwood and others, have been
incorporated in this way. The
advantage is that everything necessary for a new city io have in the
way of legislation is provided for,
anil there are no costs whatever.
No fees are charged by the government, and it is only necessary to
copy one of the acts already passed,
such as said chapter 28 of the
statutes of igoo.
C. Dunois Mason, City Solicitor,
Victoria : The experience we have
gained here during llie past six
years in attempting amendments
to the municipal clauses act, and the
confusion that exists owing to
absence of method in the conduct
of the committee of the House on
nuuiieipal affairs, prevents our
ascertaining what are llie wants ol
other cities, and each year numerous
amendments are sought, many of
them by cities who do not in any
way regard the wants of other
localities; the consequence of all
this is that the act is a piece of
patch-work legislation, involving
the utmost care on the legal ad
visers of the city tn avoid litigation
on technicalities, The council ol
ihis city became so exasperated by
the refusal of the House to give
ihcni necessary amendments, and
with the state of confusion, that
thev fully determined to have their
own charter, but ultimately, last
session, they refrained from bring
ing it in upon an assurance that
the act would be revised and con
and include several
amendments which we have long
desired. 1 have learned that this
cannot be done ihis present session,
and I think it extremely probable
that next year's council will insist
upon seeking the chatter. Willi
legard to your municipality, the act
as it now stands makes no sufficient
provision lor inter-municipal conditions. 1 taku it that there are
numerous special local circumstances winch you require to
govern by legislation.   1 shall be
pleased lo render my assistance in
any way desired.
(',. J. Haywood, Grand Forks 1
I write to commend the Brand lor
a special charter, instead ol laboring under the nuuiieipal clauses
net. 1 further want to advise that
according to our experience for the
past seven years from a righteous
standpoint, the position ol Btipt ;.-
dary magistrate lur a small town is
I complete failure—-the tool of a
clique or ol the M. 1', 1'. better
have the mayor, by virtue of Ins
position, and, as a representative
ol the people, be the police magistrate lor small towns of 2,000
population or less—or two justices
if the peace. I wish to make a
pecial point and plea for this, as
it is absolutely disheartening that
we cannot improve matters under
the general act without introducing
II bill in tbe Legislature dealing with
the general act, We cannot get
legislation specially for
done, so don't come in under the
general act il you can help it. I
lave written this to give you a
pointer on your direct path, it;
special charter: Trusting you will
■xcuse the liberty,
eight miles wide, not only what  is assessed value of the municipality
the most necessary, but alsu what
is the most feasible and proper
work to be done, and when the
end of the year comes they feci
that very likely they have after all
made a mistake,
2. Whether incorporation should
be under general charter or under
llie general act, This question is
certainly a very hard one to
answer, but by giving it the greater
thought I cannot but think that
one must be forced to the conclusion that a special charter is the
wisest course. With the pitfalls
and experience ol others we have
surely enough brains amongst us
to get something that will last us
many years, especially, with a
clause in that charter that it cannot
be altered without the consent of
the ratepayers. We cannot alter
the general act without at least
the silent consent of all the other
municipalities, why then run the
risk ol being tied up because we
want to do the impossible?
3. Shall the name be Buriard or
Nortli Vancouvei? Most decidedly
l.t us keep it North Vancouver;
sentiment might alter it, but business principles at the present time
could never do so. Look at the
advertising we have had through
the city ol Vancouver, the Tourist
association, our bonds, the deeds
of our lauds and a thousand and
one other ways. To change the
name now would lie like buying an
old establishment and immediately
changing the name. " Burrard,
successor to Nortli Vancouver;"
how much does it take for such a
business to advertise?
Allow me to reiterate what has
happened at the various meetings.
A well advertised meeting of the
shall sign a petition in order to
borrow, so how can money be
borrowed when the large taxpayers
refused to sign said petition?
The present area of the miinici-
cipality is about 75,000 acres.
Can anyone deny that this is too
large an area to handle as a city,
so it can be seen that it is not a
questiouol trying to "rush things,"
but that it is a question of putting
things on a satisfactory business-
footing by incorporating a portion
of this unwieldy area into a city ol
about 2,500 acres.
The second point is, shall we
incorporate under the present
municipal clauses act or under a
special charter. At the last committee meeting the following resolution was passed  unanimously,
"That this committee having
again gone fully into the question
of how to incorporate, are oi the
opinion that a special charter will
b* best."
When this resolution was passed
the following committee nun
were present: Keeve Kealy,
Councillors May, Allen and Morden, and Messrs. Keilh, Cornish,
Hope, Woods, Dick and Diplock,
tolal ten. During the past two
days I have seen Messrs. Bartley,
Phillippo, Thompson and Mahon,
who also stated to me that hail
they been present at the last committee  meeting  thev  also    would!

so many amendments having been
made to the said act; would they
incorporate under the act now?
What one would tlo iu 1X97 one
might not do in 11)00.
(10) In drawing its charter,
Nortli Vancouver city would have
the benefit of the experience of
older cities; this advantage is too
obvious to need any comment.
(11) I favor a general clause in
the charter which will prohibit any
amendments, except by a vote of
the people. I also favor the system nl frontage tax lor improvements, and that the sinking lund
be handled by a board of trustees.
The third point is, shall we
change the name? Personally, I
think this will be a great mistake,
but as a good ileal has been written
on this subject already, notably
Mr. Larson's able letter, I will not
enlarge on this, but will conclude
by asking the ratepayers to vote—
(1) That we incorporate.
(2) That we incorporate under a
special charter.
(3) That the name of the city be
North Vancouver,

the stomach cleansed, the blood purified, the system I     I

To make the best Bread
you must have the
best Flour.
When the dough is flat, sour, heavy,
will not rise,-—when the bread \a
soggy, tasteless, indigestible;—then
you have cheap and inferior flour.
You may use pure fresh yeast,
feithfully adhere to the old-time successful bread making traditions, the
methods usually successful—but the
baking turns out badly—simply
because you have not used the right
kind of flour.
Royal Household Flour is purified
aad sterilized by electricity, it is therefore uniformly pure and wholesome.
And because it is thoroughly purified
it will yield a sweet, wholesome, light
sponge that will bake into flaky, deli-    »,
ciously flavored, nourishing bread or   Ij^
pastry. L v
It is really the only absolutely pure
flour you can get
Guaranteed by its makers and

Let no ele.im under-estimate
ilie importance ol the vote to be
taken at tin municipal hall tomorrow, By careful nnd judicious
management the district lias in
recent years made excellent progress with th** initial work ol preparing the way. Hui foundation
work cannot be lout' continued il
ihere is not some part of a solid
superstructure going up, Consolidation is now a necessity, anil that
in.'ans town-building with all that
is involved. The interests ..1 a
town ana nnd a rural district are
about as different as the poles
asunder and each can certainly
best proceed on iis own lines.
Tlm crucial i|iii'stion t,, morrow is
neithei llio name nor the form of
charter—these are details that will
lu' easy to adjust, before the committee of the house il necessary-
city or no city is the real issue, and
we humbly submit that a very great
injnry will be done to the community il lor any reason the hand of
progress is stayed, Incorporation
is now a necessity to the progress
ol the city, and we venture also to
assert that separation is necessary
to secure tlie progress of the rural
district, Till now there 1ms been
amity and forbearance, and all
knew that the initial work had to
be done, but many interests are
risine, u|i that can only receive due
attention through separation. This
is true of the rural area as it is ol
liie town.
■ The rural area does not require
sidewalks, boulevards, parks, nor
n system ol sewerage, but all these
things are the very life ol the city.
Th. rural area does need roads and
,1 large mileage ol them, built at
little tost to give access to all the
homes and fauns. It will also
need many bridges, ami some ol
thesi ..t large dimensions, liuuce
' vi tv cent nl rural revenue should
be devoted to rural work,
A factor ol the utmost importance
i" the ciiy will be its power to raise
the money it now has on loan at a
lower rate of interest, It the
monej market continue as it is at
l'i. sent it sliould Im possible to
plat e a loan sufficient to pay off all
iin present debt at four pi r cent,
interest and this will ropiest nt a
' irge annual saving ol interest.
The same rate is not available for
a rural district,
'I In se and many other ri asons
which might be mentiom tl nil constrain us to urge w illi all earucst-
• that the first tpiestion on the
ballt : papet be answered by a good
clear "x" opposite tin "yes" by
every eh  b 1
