Moved by Alexander Philip
seconded by J. R. .1. Murray,
"That this meeting ol satepa}
ers approve the action and work
of the city council in siibiniit
ing thc bylaw for ferry piiiilusi
and hope that tlie ratepayers
will heartily support tt al  tin
polls on Wednesday next".
The lact that after an extend
ed discussion, the ebon motion
was formulated and carried
without a dissentient voice "t
vote at the ratepayers' meeting
last evening, conveys in tin
most forceful manner the but
that the sentiment ul the rati
payers is practically unanimous
in favoring the bylaw as submitted.
Mayor W. H. May opened the
meeting, and was appoint*
chairman. In his opening remarks, he called special attention to the (act that Inlaws
BUfflbsc hi and b: complement
each nther, and that the lam
ing ol liolll was essential to tin
eficcting of the purchase.     Hi
also referred to the imleiiiniiv
bylaw ami commended it tu tlu
favorable .ic iimi uf Un- ratepayers.

Alexander Philip then moved

said tliat he had had opportunity   to   examine    llu-   lin.iiui.il
statement ol the ferry compan)
for the pasl year. He was
pleased to lie able lo state that
the profits earned represent a
return of a little better than
four per cent, on the purchase
pliCS ol >7o,uoo, su that tin
city would be buying a paying
proposition irom the start. The
motion was seconded by J. R.
J. Murray, who stated that the
citizens had an opportunity now
to settle this lerry problem satisfactorily, and to place the
city on the way to growth and
prosperity, and the bylaws
should carry a big margin over
the required three-fifths vote.
The resolution was supported
liy W. Keene, C. F. Jackson, W.
Morden, B. II. Haldcrslun, Jack
Loutet, A.EKealy, and others.
The mayor put the motion   and
it l.n md unanimoualy.
It was then moved In \\. I
Eisenman, and ssconded by R.
Iv Maiiiagliteii, that this meeting ol ratepayers endorse the
indemnity bylaw and request
the ratepayers to vute lur il un
Wednesday.    This motion    was
likewise  carried  aaanimoaaly.

BYLAW No. 63
Editor Baprsmi
Sir,—In your issue of the }6th
inst., I observe notice of Bylaw
No. 63, the object of which is
to raise $3000 fur Mr. Bunbury.
Now, I am one of a large
num-l-cr of Nortli Vaiicottveritcs
who endured the numerous and
varied discomforts of the motor
boats, and the extra expense
and inconvenience caused by
their erratic and unreliable ssr-
vice, in the hupe ul belter
things to coiiici, and I am quite
willing to sec Mr. Bunbury receive adequate compensation loi
lliis loss iii iinie and iiiom-v Wi
must, however, bear in mind
thc lact, that the "Motor Boat
Co." was purely a business venture on the part of Messrs.Hun-
bury and Braim, and the benefit
resulting to the public merely
incidental. They were, in lact,
gambling on the feeling oi Inutility to the old company, aim
we are not responsible lor tlu
failure of their enterprise, 1101
should we be called upon to pay
a large bonus to Mr. Buniiury,
in addition to reimbursing lum
for his losses.
In view of the above facts, tin
sum of |)0M appears to nie.alin
I believe to many others, to bc
excessive, and 1, for one, shall
certainly not vote Ior tin- bylaw without more light on nu
subject. As things stand al
present, 1 do not believe it will
pass, and I therefore beg to suggest that you, if you are interested in the matter, might du
very good work ior Mr. Bunbury, by furnishing information
on the following points:
1. Did Mr. Bunbury, as manager of the Motor Boat Co., receive salary, "expenses," or anv
other form of remuneration loi
his services'
2. The company  is said   lu
have li.vt  >i>, pvr iliiv. Iluii
much was paid to Mr. Iti.11111,
either belore or alter that attack ol "cold leet," which mused his nominal retirement Iron,

The above and similar questions are lieing asked every dav,
on the streets and the boats,
and upon the answers to ihein
the result ol the vole will largely depend. II you can luiiush
the desired mlormation .um

The succ.ss il lhe gas producing process invented by v\ alter Thomas, and owned by tlu
pruprielors ul lhc Nnrlh Vancuuver Light, Ileal 1* das Power Company, Limited, is being
proved to a delimnslialiuii   m\
tin- experimental plant, located
at 1229 Granville sired, Vancouver,    The process is ,1 111,11
vel ul simplicity .uid ifiectivc
tiess, and consists merely nl the
extraction ol ihe gases general
ed by burning wood.    Any sort
uf wuud will answer, ,iinl when
a representative ol The Express
inspected the process, gas   was
being manufactured trotn pieces
ol Iir bark gathered Indiscriminately,
The plant, witli the single exception of the producer, is an
exact reproduction of the con-
rational gas plant. The producer consists ol two lilies side
by side, one lor the up draft
and one for the down draft,aim
divided horizontally inlo an up
per and a luvver cuiiipartiiieiit.
The wuod (rom which the gas
is to be extracted is placed in
the top compartment and set
011 lire, lhe Haines being allowed
to   escape   meantime    through
openings ia ths tup.   W hen tlu
producer is in oper.itimi, tlust
top openings are dosed. Thc
air then enters the- one title at
the bottom, passes up through
the burning wood and duwu iln
other Hue, extracting Ihs vols
tile out oi tin- burning wood as
it goes, and carries them duiv n
through a charcoal tiller ,in llu
opposite Hue, which lixcs them
to a staid gas, rt .uly lo be used
for heati or power.
The process represents llu
nearest possible approach to a
tlow of natural gas and challenges the beholders credulity, because of its very simplicity, Tin
gas is produced at a cost uver
200 per cenl cheaper than   coal
gas, with winch ii compares
favoralbly Ior power pBTpoass,
and also lor lighting purposes,
when the burner which   is   BOW
being perfected by the luinp.uii
is used. On the average, 1)00
tons ol fuij wullld give 40,000,-
000 cubic iect ol gas. It is estimated that this is lhe .imuiilil
of gas producing wood thnt   iv
destroyed by tlie mills, etc., ni
Vancouver civcry day, and that
city uses dally .ibnitt $00,000
cubic feet uf gas.
Attached tm the experimental
plant referred tn, is a jit. tn
which a match was applied in
the presence "l Tin- Bxpresa representative a few minutes after the producer was set iii operation, and the Immediate result was a burst nt flame, nl
about the same color as lllal
given hy a coal nil lamp. From
thc vats the gas is conducted .1
distance ni abultt nne hundred
leet, to a six liurse pnvver   en
gine, operated by a single gas
jet, iitlc-d willi a hnnd. Attached lu lliis engine ls a dynamu,
carrying nu volts and connected Willi a set ui twelve Nu. 3b
electric lamps. Tin* ainpliers
wm* adjusted by simply altering the switch, making these
lights as bright or as dim as
the operator chose. This process places it within the power
of every sawmill (lor illustration) tO generate lis own light
and power, and thai out of the
refuse Htm her, the sawdust, and
oilier waste wood about the
plan*. It is likewise readily-
adaptable to any industrial institution, ami its significance
to producers ami manufacturers
can   scarcely be overeslimalcd.
The Installation oi a plant 01
