NUMBER 16
CITY COUNCIL
Aldermen Irwin, May, Wheeler,
Crickmay, Braim and Smith were
in tlieir places at the opening of
the session nl the city council on
Monday evening. Mayor Kealy
presided. The cniincil chanilier
was well tilled wilh listeners, due
to the fact that the tenders (or
street improvements, etc., were to
be opened.
The following letters were read
by City Clerk Shepherd: From R.
L. Docherty, secretary of the Horticultural Society, inviting the
Mayor and council to attend the
opening ol the new Horticultural
building on July ist, at 8 p. BL;
accepted with thanks. From J.
R. J. Murray, secretary of the special, audit committee, stating that
the auditors report that in the
transfer of the assets Irom the district to the city, no account was
taken of the value of the road**
and streets that had been opened
up previous to incorporation, and
asking that they be provided with
a statement of the value of the
same; board ol works to report.
From the city engineer, recommending that the hydrants
throughout the city be flushed out
at once and that this be done regularly in future, and also that the
side channels throughout the
city be thoroughly flushed in conjunction with the flushing ol the
hydrants; chairmen of the lm and
the water committees to set. From
William Godfrey, manager Bank
ol B. N. A., Vancouver, requesting
that the local manager, H. R Heffell, be granted an extension of the
option for the sale of city debentures until July ist, snd ststing
thst s portion o( the same had recently been sold; extension granted.
From James P. Fell miring
that the plan previously submitted
lor the subdivision ol the east oue-
hall of I).I.. 552, be cancelled,
and submitted a new plan drawn
by G. H. Dawson, for the consideration of the council. The
new plan followed the contour of
the ground and overcame certain
serious difficulties which marked
the previous plan. Aid. Irwin,
chairman of the board ol woiks
,.|i|c. tui iiiilu* proposed new plan,
on the ground that it made no provision for the continuation of 21st
and 23rd streets, already located
to the hiitiiii. ry o( DL. 5$]. He
was in favor of the streets following the contour ol the ground, but
the owners of D. L. 544 were entitled to the continttstion of the
streets in question, snd in this instance it was quite feasible to continue the same. The Mayor was
of opinion that the streets in question were not open streets, snd
that the plan as submitted wss in
order. On motion of Aid. May,
the matter was relerred lothe city
engineer, in conference with Mr.
Dswson, for hn.il adjustment
Reports were resd ss follows:
Board of works, ordering payment
cf sccounts totalling f 179* 58;
waterwoiks committee f 107.15; reports sdopted.
Minutes of s meeting of the
board of works, recommending ss
follows: That Lonsdale Avenue
from ant to 13rdstreets, be graded, guttered, and laid with crushed
rock, and that a sidewslk be built,
sdopted. Aid. Wheeler, chairman
of the bosrd of heslth, repotted
the abatement o( the nuissnee referred to st Isst council meeting.
He also resd s letter from Dr.
Campbell, medical health officer,
calling attention to the necessity
of the drsining of thc stsgnant
water (rom lhc vacant lot at the
corner of Lonsdale and ist,and also
that attention be given the ditch
on ist between Lonsdsle snd St
George's; bosrd of works and
board of health lo act.
Tenders were then opened ss
follows: For clearing three and
en.* hlih acres st the cemetery,
James Chsrles, (1040; Arthur
Rhodes, J910; I. J Wslsh, J325
per acre; Frank King and Lawrence Murphy, f 1290; R. T. Brad-
burn, I400 per acrs. Aid. Irwin
observed thst this clesring is very
light snd the tenders sre sll too
high. He moved thst none ol
the tenders resd be accepted
Carried.
For  nth street improvements:
J. Duvis, M McKeller and R.
Griffen, $2^15, D. J. Kennedy,
1*3352, W. S ider, $1900.
For 16th street improvements:
Samuel Baker, Jnoo; Robert Nelson, $1500; Askew & Kennedy,
J1593; W. Snider, II995; J. Davis,
McKeller and R. Griffen, J1585,
For 3rd street improvements:
Askew & Kennedy, $12,045; L. F.
Murphy and Frank King, {14,000;
Askew, Kennedy and McLennan,
W3511; Antonio Farro, ti 195.
These tenders were referred to
the board of works and the city
engineer for action.
Messrs. Steacey, Williams and
Peacy, representing the school
board, waited on the council,
with reference to school extension.
Chairman Steacey stated that the
congested condition from lack ol
sufficient school accommodation
demanded immediate action. The
board had procured the opinion of
competent architects and had decided to adopt the plan of raising
the roof of the older portion ol the
main budding and makingtwo new
class rooms on the lirst floor, with
a spacious entrance. These alterations would cost about $4000.
The trustees were requested to incorporate the entire amount ol
their additional requirements for
alterations, etc , in their estimates
and submit them to thc council belore thc rate el taxation is struck
for the current year. The mayor
was empowered to sign checks for
teachers' salaries previous to the
end ol this month.
Aid. May, in accordance with
bis last notice at last meeting,
moved a bylaw to repeal thc ferry
purchase byisw. He was not particular which method was followed
whether of immediate repeal bythe
the council or of reference to people for theiradjudication. He had
two forms of bylaw, one for either
process. He referred to section 50
of the Municipalities Clsuses Act,
and also to sub-section 11 ol that
section to establish the right of
the council to repeal. Under subsection 11, he celled sttention to
the fact the bylaw was probably
invalid, inasmuch as it made no
provision lor time limit in carrying
out the clauses ol the bylaw, as
required. He lurther stated that
there was a precedent for repeal
by the council, in thai upon a
previous occasion a bylaw relating
to ferry matters hsd been so dealt
with.
The mayor dissented from ihis
Isst assertion, ststing that the bylaw had not been repealed; it had
been reconsidered and finally
passed. As for section 50, it did
not enumerate any project that
would bring the lerry purcha-e
within its scope. He hsd taken
the precsution to procure the opinion of the city solicitor as to thc
power of the council to repeal a
a money bylaw. The mayor then
read a letter (rom the solicitor, advising that the council has not the
power to repeal s bylsw to raise
money, which hss been passed
by thc people. The act especially
provides thst a money bylsw can
be repealed only with the consent
of the lieutenant governor-in*
council, and this consent could not
bc hsd without the ssscnt of the
people.
I    Aid. May continued to Ihe effect
that thc chief considerstion in re
I pealing  this bylsw,  is the grest
. wiight resting on the city financially in ils authorised debenture
debt, making it impossible to put
1 through the sslc of the ferry debentures, and the presence of these
debentures on the market impeded
the ule of  other debentures,   the
sale of which was urgent.
The msyor sdvised thst s plebiscite  be   tsken snd,   if   favorable, appeal bc then made to the
1 lieutenant governor for the repeal
of the bylaw.   Aid. Braim moved
and Aid. May seconded Ihst the
I bylsw for submission to the electors be resd s first time.    It wss
I held that any necesssry alterations
could be msde alter this rcsding.
I It wss suggested thst s better method would be to instruct the sol
inter to prepare s Inlaw (or sub-
1 mission lo the people, to repesl
' the ferry   purchase   bylaw.   Aid.
Msy then moved to this eflect,
seconded   by Aid. Wheeler,   and
the motion carried with no dissent-,
ing vote.
The hoard of works was instruct
ed to notify owners to clear up
their lots under section 10 of the
fire bylaw, the city eugincer to
provide a list of lots requiring attention.
The sprinkling ol Lonsdale ave.
on Dominion Day was decided
upon, cither by means of a cart
borrowed from Vancouver or by
the use of the special nozzle
owned by the city Ior that purpose.
Fire department to test the nozzle
and Aid. Crickmay to report
Thursday evening.
At the special meeting of the
city council last evening, those
present being Aid. Irwin,May and
Crickmay, with Mayor Kealy in
the chair.
Manager Cjuinn and Wm. Morden, manager and director respectively of the Ferry Company, explained to the council the plan
proposed by the company for Ierry
approaches at this end on July ist.
The plan was endorsed and the
1 ui*'.uui inui of the barricades allowed, on condition that they be
removed by July 3rd.
In the absence of members ol
the board of works, the council proceeded to deal with the tenders (or
street improvements. The city
engineer recommended as follows:
That the tender ol W. Snider, for
the work on 16th street and on 1 ith
street, and the tender of Askew,
Kennedy & McLennan, for work
on 3rd street, be accepted; also
that new tenders be called for for
sidewalk on 3rd street, or that the
work be done by day labor. Oa)
motion of Aid. Irwin and Crickmay, the tender of Askew, Kennedy & McLennan was accepted. Oa
motion of Aldermen Irwin and
May, new tenders were directed to
be called (or for sidewalk on 3rd
street, tenders to be in by July 6.
The tender ol Stoney ft Co., for
painting the city hall Ior $113, waa
accepted. This dees not include
the painting of the roof.whicb was
laid over in order that the advisability of using green creosote in
stead of tar may be considered.
This will cost $80, but would be
more durable and oi much better
appearance.
Board of Trade
The regular monthly meeting ol
the North Vancouver board of
trade was held on Tuesday evening, President G. J. Phillipo in
the chsir. The following letters
were read: From city clerk, Van
couver, acknowledging receipt o(
a fetter iu endorsation of the action of the city council as to thc
expropriation by Vancouver of a
certain piece of land at the entrance to the ferry slip, and staling the letter would be laid belore
the city council. From City Clerk
Shepherd, acknowledging with
thanks receipt of letter, to the effect that the above action had
been endorsed by the board of
trsde.   Both letters filed.
From F. W. Templer, resigning
his membership; accepted with regret. From the secretary of the
Capilano Land ft Improvement
Co., requesting the board of trade
to endorse their action in petition
ing the government for a wharf, to
cost not less than f 10,000, and
that the endorsation be forwarded
to R. G. Mcl'herson,M.P.; request
complied with. It was lurther
moved by Mayor Kealy, seconded
by Wm. Morden, snd resolved,
thst this bosrd of trade endorse
thc principles ss Isid down in the
petition presented by the Cspilsno
Property Owners' Association to
Hon. F. Carter Cotton, re roads
through government lands sold by
public suction.
The secrctsry reported thai tin-
circulating ol the Year Book was
proceeding very satisfactorily. The
total cost ol the book will be a
little over (600. snd for proper circulation say $100 will be required.
There are sufficient sums in hand
to meet the first item. It was resolved (hat thanks bc extended to
the committee for the commendable manner in which the Year
Book was gotten out, snd the ex
ccllent work done in regard there
to.
Considcrsble discussion took
plsce with reference to sn improved mail service. Aid. Irwin advo-
csted the need o( either sn additional eveniag mail, or a later de
parture of the present evening
mail. On motion of Aid. Irwin
and A. B. Diplock, Postoffice Inspector Greenfield will be requested to arrange thc mails in accordance with the above suggestion.
The motion, ol which notice was
given at last meeting by Aid. Irwin, to amend the bylaws, by the
introduction of section 11, was then
put by the president and carried.
Henceforth absentee chairmen (or
three consecutive meetings may be
displaced at the discretion of the
board.
The matter of better patronage
for local industries, etc., was in
troduced by Geo. H. Morden, having particular reference to the
lumber interests on the aorth side
of the Inlet. He stated that according to information given J. R.
J. Murray and himself from local
sources, from jo to 75 pe,r cent of
the lumber now being used in
North Vancouver comes from Vancouver mills, and that at least
$10,000 per month is thus lost to
local interests. This may be accounted for in part from the fact
that many who are building here
are non-residents and the contracts are let elsewhere, but the
fact remains that even resident
builders in very many instance: do
not accord the local mills even an
opportunity to figure on their lumber bills. The eflect s that local
mills are overstocked and are running intermittently, and are facing
the necessity of shutting down in
the near future. These mills are-
expending from (6000 to $8000 a
month in wages, so that cessation
of operations would be a grave
matter to the city. The local mills
have sufficient capacity to supply
the entire market. Their prices
are right. In fact, they succeed
in getting the order for nine out of
ten lumber bills on which they figure. It would be to the interest o(
the entire city could some means
be devised whereby the local mills
may at least have an opportunity
to figure on lumber bills for buildings about to be constructed.
A. B. Diplock ststed that the
Wright Diplock Lumber Co. had
paid out over $8000 in wages dur
ing the past two months. Their
payments to the B. C. Electric Co.
are sufficient to smount to 2# per
cent on the capita! investment of
the company on this side of the Inlet, and this goes a long way to
wards maintaining this large local
interest on a paying basis. If the
local mills were not in operation
the Vancouver mills would not
quote such low prices for the local
trade. The local lumber is better
than that ordinarily delivered bv
outside mills. He thought that
practically 95 per cent of the bills
on which they had figured, they
had secured. His company now
have their yards lull of lumber and
they would be compelled to shut
down pending its sale, should the
situation not be relieved in the
near future. One third of their
sales at present go to Vancouver,
which goes to show that prices are
right.
Mayor Kealy, Alderman Irwin,
Wm. Morden, D. W. Elder, W
Jones and others spoke on the subject. Finally Geo. H. Morden,
Aid. Irwin and Secretary Murray
were appointed a committee to
draft a circular letter, to be forwarded to property owners; a
series of show cards for window
display, and to devise snd execute
other mesns to call attention to the
lact that local industries and other
interests require the stimulus of
public pstronage, and if possible
lo incite the citizens to loyally in
this regard.
W. Jones outlined a scheme (or
holding a grand band tournament
in North Vancouver, extending
over a week, comprising 15 bands,
snd also stringed instruments and
choral features. The matter was
relerred to a committee composed
ol the entertainment committee,
with Messrs. Chsnce and Jones.
On motion ol Mayor Kealy, seconded by A. B. Diplock, the next
rcgulsr meeting will be the annual meeting in October. Meetings during the interim may bc
called by thc chair.

ll will be seen that there is no
specific mention therein, ol a

how any of the phrases used could
he held to make even an implied

bee.lines the stronger upon refer

■ xpbcit provision is made lor the

NUMBER 18
A Home Industry
Among the many nurserymen
doing business on the Pacific coast
no one is better known to the fruit
men of B. C. than M. J. Henry,
3010 Westminster road, Vancouver. Mr. Henry has been in the
business lor the past 18 years.
His knowledge of B.C. conditions,
his wide experience as a grower ol
fruit and ornamental trees.the ample facilities at his command, and
a natural aptitude for this line of
work, have all helped in the upbuilding of a very extensive business.
Aside altogether from the patriotic aspect of 'he case—and, other
things being equal, the "grown in
B. C. brand" should appeal to all
—there are decided advantages in
securing stock from a local concern. The trees are not so long
in shipment, nor is fumigation necessary as in the case of imported
stock; and further, the local nurseryman relies upon your continued
support—self-interest dictates generous treatment of his patrons.
M. J. Henry employs no travelling salesmen. His catalogue-
one of the best nursery catalogues
in America—is sent Iree to all intending purchasers.

at the meeting. United interest
upon the part of a large number of
ladies is absolutely necessity in order to make the day a success.

Old-Time Fire Brigade Feasl
at Hotel North Vancouver
A notable banquet took place al
the Hotel North Vancouver last
Friday night, being the annual affair of the Veteran Volunteer Firemen's Association ol Vancouver.
On June 13th, 1886, the city o(
Vancouver was wiped out by fire,
and the remnants of the gallant
fire brigade then in existence honor
that event each year by a banquet.
The brigade in 188b numbered 110,
but there remains now only 23,two
of their number having passed to
the great beyond dining the past
year. Oue of that iainous band ol
pioneers was Pete Larson,the genial proprietor of the Hotel North
Vancouver and it was at his earnest solicitation that the banquet
commemorating the 22nd anniversary ol the great fire was held at
his hestelry. And there, gathered
around the festive bosrd, the com
rades of years ago recounted their
experiences of the great fire and
recalled reminiscences of pioneer
davs in and around Vancouver and
other p anions of the province.
Those present at Ihe banquet
were: Mayor Bethune, Vancouver;
Mayor Kealy, North Vancouver;
Reeve May.of the district of North
Vancouver; Andy Linton, C. L.
Behnsen, E. J. McFeeley, and
Robert Clark, men in business at
the time of the fire; W. Rannie;
representatives of the News-Advertiser, World, Province.and The
Express; snd the following old fire
fighters: Hon. president, J. H.
Carlisle; president, G. L. Shetky;
vice president, J. McAllister; sec-
retsry, G. Thomas, jr.; |. G. Garvin, H. Csmpbell.R. Leatherdale,
J. Campbell, G. F. Upham, F.
Gladwin, S. H. Ramage.J. Moran,
Pete Larson, Wm. McGirr, A. M.
Tyson, John Taylor, E. C. Britton
H. Duhamel, C. W. Hawley.
Reynolds orchestra,the oldest in
the city, furnished an excellent
programme of music throughout
the evening.
The banquet was a swell affair

Vice President McAllister acted
as chsirman for the programme
following the banquet, opening his
duties by stating that two ol the
old brigade had answered their
last call during the year, viz., C.T.
Giegure and Thomas Becket. A
letter was read Irom Rev. Mr.Clinton, one of their comrades, stating
that other duties prevented his attendance. A flashlight photograph
was then taken of the assembly.
Thc tosst ol "The King" was
honored in right, loyal style; and
the health of "Our Host," one ol
the old brigade, was proposed and
vociferously received. In a characteristic 111..111111 Mr. Larson said
the affair was one of Ihe bright
spots of his life. For years he had
desired the company of his old pals
and he esteemed thc honor o( entertaining them very highly. Only a lew remained of llieir original
number, but he trusted all present
would be long spared to keep up
these snniversary proceedings. He
then went on lo speak ol incidents
connected with the brigade of long
ago.
"The Municipality of North
Vancouver" gave Mayor Kealy the
opportunity to dilate on the advan-
tagea and growth of this city. He
complimented the old firemen up
on their evident health and prosperity. This city owed a great
deal to Van. ouver for help given
in times of need, and he desired to
publicly thank Chief Carlisle for
the losn of hose in fighting fires
here. Indeed, only in the Isst few
days this city hsd been spsred a
big conflagration. Like Vancouver, this young city is planning its
life on large lines snd is bound to
succeed. Vancouver,in being compelled to come to this side of the
Inlet for its water supply, was

expending much money here, so
h lping all classes. All the municipalities in this vicinity should
work together. We have the finest harbor on the coast, of which
his recent trip to California had
more than ever convinced him.
The natural advantages of the district were so numerous and important that he predicted still more
rapid growth of all the municipalities concerned.
Joe Reynolds favored tbe company with a violin solo.
The toast of the "Cilj of Vancouver" was responded to by Mayor Bethune. Seventeen years ago
he began hn career in municipal
politics, his introduction thereto
being due to the chairman, Mr.
McAllister. He had always done
what he could Ior the people; his
record was clean, and he highly
sppreciated his position. From
his viewpoint the interests ol Vancouver and North Vancouver were
identical. The strip of water between should not divide the cities.
Vancouver is rapidly filling up and
the overflow population must
spread here. The two places ought
to be incorporated as one, thereby
saving expense in government.
There already existed between the
two places a bridge, founded upon
good fellowship, which he knew
would always exist.
The chairman, Mr. McAllister,
contrasted the hand pumps and
muddy roads experienced by the
old brigade with the automobiles
and paved streets o( the Vancouver of today. In 1889 the brigade
had gone lo Tacoma and competed
with the best teams of the country.
Not only had they laken all the
prizes, but they had established a
world's record, which had never
been equalled.
In answering the toast ol "District ol North Vancouver," Reeve
May stated he had arrived in B.C.
in 1886; he had never been out ol
the province since, and never
wished to go. For 15 years he
had been on this side of the Inlet
snd had watched the country grow.
The district had turned out one
fine city and he hoped so see it
turn out others. Industries would
eventually come to this side and
the district grow (aster than ever.
The district was 16 miles long and
possessed unrivalled sites (or the
homes ol settlers. There was lots
"Irn.nn and thc finest views on the
continent. People must come here
for their outings, as witness Empire Day, when over 3000 persons
went up the Capilano. Fully 70
settlers were living on Lynn
creek, and a hotel was going up on
Seymour creek, all ol which showed enterprise. All the adjacent
municipalities should work together, having a common purpose in
view.
Chief Carlisle traced the history
of the Vancouver fire brigade and
told "I its presenl equipment; Capt.
Moran anil J. Campbell told of the
early days, and C. E. Smith, nu
gale sang a song.
In answer to ths toar.l of "Old
Vancouver Fire Brigade," President Shetky, Capt. McGirr and H.
Campbell all gave reminiscent remarks.
Six men were doing business in
Vancouver now who were burned
out in 1886, and four of these—R.
Clark, E. J. McFeeley, C. L.Behn-
son and A. Linton—told ol their
experiences on that fateful Sunday.
"The Alert Hose Team of Van
couver of 22 years ago, the swiftest
sprinters on earth." was responded
to by John Garvin, Steve Ramage,
and Gabe Thomas, the "baby" of
the brigade. How and why the
famous victory at Tacoma was won
was graphically described. Gold
medals presented by the city of
Vancouver to the victors were
shown as evidence of the statements made.
"The Ladies" was responded to
by J. Taylor, and a toast to "The
Departed Comrades" was fittingly
honored. Then "The Press" received its deserts, its dignity being
upheld by the representatives in
attendance. "The Chairman" ended the toast list, and the proceedings were brought to a close by the
singing of Auld Lang Syne and
the National Anthem.
The gathering was about thc
best and most successful the Association has yet held, while the banquet reflected the greatest possible
credit upon the management of the
Hotel North Vancouver. The
company were conveyed home by
the launch of the Vancouver water
works department.
