OTTAWA DELEGATION
The ollicial report of Onboard of trade representative on
the Ottawa delegation with respect to the V. W. 4 V. application for an extension, and the
application ol the Burrard Inlet Tunnel tx Bridge Company,
for Incorporation, was read by
the appointee, Geo. II. Morden,
at the regular meeting of the
executive ol the board, on Tuesday evening.
The report dealt iu detail with
the progress ol events from tlie
arrival oi the delegation at Ottawa on Monday, February 14,
until the favorable action of the
railway committee of the Federal House on thc B. I. T. & B.
Co'a application at the session
on Tuesday, February 22nd.
A perusal ol the reporl brings
out very clearly lhe fact that
the sojourn of the delegation in
the capilal was bv no means a
season oi leisure, bul thai the
time was lully occupied by important conferences with prominent members of the house,
and with contiiiuous negotiations with the representatives
ol the V. W. St V. railway-
Personal work among the individual members of the house
was likewise not overlooked,
much energy having been exc-rl-
d along this channel with good
ellect.
When the hour arrived lor the
meeting of the railwav committee for the first consideration ol
the matter in hand, the delegation had been able to arrive ,11
a lairlv accurate estimate ol the
sii nation from which it appeared probable that the V. W. &
V would secure their extension
and the 11. I. I. & B. Co.would
secure tlieir charter. All question with relerence to the V. W.
Hi V. retaining their claim upon
the subsidv had been conclusively disposed ol by 'lose obS' rva-
lion ol the terms of the subsidy-
act to which the attention of
the delegation was directed by
Hon. Win. Templeiiian.
At this session of the committee, however, the situation was
coinplicatud by means of a further application upon the part
ol the V. »'. ft V,, to have their
charter amended to give them
power to 1 (instruct a imiibina-
tion bridge and also to give
them the power to issue bonds
for loan purposes on thc structure. The entire session of two
hours wa.s exhausted in argument upon one side and the
other, and lapse, of time made
it necessary to lav the matter
over until the next session. The
leading speakers in favor of the
V. \\. H, V., were Alex. Smith
solicitor, Ralph Smith, Ml',
and Mr. McNeil, while on behalf of the II. I. T. & B. Co.,
were heard Mr. Guthrie, solicitor, Geo. II. Cowan, MP, JUcvt

DISTRICT COUNCIL
Al the regular meeting of the
listrict council held lasl evening al which Uiero was present
Aiimg-Recvc Allan, presiding
Councillors liridguian, Lawson
and Thompson, a letter was
read trom the attorney-general
in answer to thc resolution
passed recently by the council,
and which was Iorwarded the
Hon. Mr. Bowser, in connection
with the proposed amendment
lo the elections act now before
the House. Its contents were
as lollows: "1 beg to acknowledge- receipt ol your letter ol
lhe 25th inst., enclosing me a
copy ol a resolution passed Dyvour council against my proposed ameiiiliiieiil to the municipal elections act now beloru
the house, defining "owner" as
being "registered owner."
1 may say that this department has given an opinion sometime ago and on several occasions that the weird "owner"
means "registered owner" but
as there seems to be some dilh-
culty about it, it was thought
advisable to have it defined by
legislation so lhat wc are simply lollowing out by legislation
the position taken by the department in this coiiiieitum.
I mighl also say that tins a-
niiiidiiK-iit was suggested to us
by the committee oi thc U.B.C.
■>, when they met mc here in
January."
(Signed)
W. J. BOWSER,
Attorncy-Gcnci»J"
The resolution passed by the.
council to which the loregoing
letter was a leply, was this:
Attention was called to the
aim iiiliueiit proposed to bo made
by the Hon. the Attorney-Gen-
11i.1l lo llic municipal elections
act, which would restrict the
hiuiiii ipai franchise lo registered owners ol property only. On
motion ol Coun. Bridgman, seconded by Coun. Thompson, it
was resolved as this amendment
would have the ellect of disliau-
ihising more than fifty per cent
ol the voters in this district, as
well as a like proportion in several other districts, and as this
council consider lhat every bona
lide owner ol property of >*ti*o
value, whether he holds a regis-
tured title or not, as he is the
tax payer, should have the rigl.'.
to vole in all municipal elections, therefore the atlorncv-
geiieral bc asked instead ol lc,
lslating as is now proposed, to
mtiroduce a bill to make perfectly clear that every such bona
fide owner, whether under a
registered or unregistered deed,
or under an agreement of absolute sale, shall have the right to
vote al municipal elections.
That copies ol this resolution lie
suit to the Hon. thc Attornc-*-
Gcueral, to lhe chairman oi the
municipal committee ol llie legislature, and lo the neighboring
1 ity and district councils.

across

aines
Roughly speaking it is a thousand miles straight away across
the prairie provinces of Alberta,
Saskatchewan and Manitoba,
from the foothills of the Rockies on tlie west, to the "old Ontario strand" on the east.
Weather conditions were again
disposed to deal kindly with us
during this section ol our journey. The utter absence of snow
upon the ground lor practically
the whole distance west ol Winnipeg enabled us to judge the
changing characteristics ol the
country, by noting the "stubble
fields" and other tokens of tlie
wheat-growing sections, as wc
bowled along. Bands of cattle
here and there donated the „'r.u-
ing country and evideiii.-d the
comparative mildiics ol Ibeilt-
mate which enables the herds to
roam at will all winter mirl to
come out in good condition in
the spring.
At Winnipeg the thermometer
registered 18 degrees below >.ero
,it | o'clock in the liiornin-;
Those inured to the climate appeared to treat this temperature
with   comparative   indiflerence,
[but recent emigrants from among thc denizens ol Hurrard inlet developed a strong allinin
for the moro gratuful precincts
of the cominodions railwav de
pot or thc comfortable coach.
The colossal potentialities Inherent in this mighty domain
which comprises one portion of
Canada's lu-ritago simply transcend the mind's powers of calculation and likewiso "beggar
the imagination." Wl are familiar with the current phrases,
"the granark-s ol the empire-,"
"tho bread-basket ol lhe world''
and kindred phrases coined to
compass in a sentence the ex-
treem importance and posit jii
of this million-acred domain
whose 'measureless i-xpiuses
stand ready to produce record
crops of the verv lincM vvlu.it
that the world can produce, at
the slightest iiidncciiit'tit (nun
in.iii, but the phrases do not be-
gill tn imply the possibilities ol
the prairie provinces. So overwhelming is the conception ol
future development! that assails
the imagination .is one jonrneya
through succeeding d.ivs mn
these endless miles nf magnificat territory that the mind
shrinks instinctively   from   ac
cepting its own conclusions, i
ltiars to commit hiiii.sili i
[intelligent convictions with rei
erciii'c to liitiii'c conditions, and
decline! to attempt lo (lepui ii,

The relationships which art
destined to oblain between llu

ol supply and demand would ol
itself accomplish this result, bul

the cvcr-inircasllig westward
movement ol population (rom
the prairies to make their hollies

introduced lor the grading   ol
pay of the dislriel workmen.
The subject was opened by the
reading of a communication
signed by 37 ol lhe men to the
ellect that they seriously objected to the new terms proposed and were one and all prepared to quit work if tht minimum wage was not lixed at 30
cents an hour.
Reeve Allan and Councillor
Bridgman regretted that the
men took this view ol the situation. It was meant, as explained by the latter, to grade
the work according to ils worth
If a man was capable of earning
30 cents an hour, he certainly
would Ik- paid that amount, but
il he was physically incapable,
he would bu put on lighter
duties at a reduced wage.
There were several ol the men
who spoke. Mr. Hunker .md Mr.
Cripps einphasi/.cd the laet that
less than 30 cents was not a
living wage. Another speaker
who was the spokesman for a
dozen or more of his fellow
workmen, askud that the resolution bc rescinded altogether.
Other matters were brought
up which were hitherto not regarded in thc matter. Thev
were walking time, and the
question oi increased pay for
bridge work. Heretofore the
men have been required to walk
long distances to and (rom work
and no allowance was made for
this time, and also the work
gang were sometimes engaged
in bridge construction, which
was really skilled labor compared to the pick and shovel
duties. This threw new light
on the situation aud to get at
an equitable understanding, it
was resolved to let tlic old rate
stand until Thursday's council
meeting, when the whole matter
would he taken up and thrashed
out Irom overy standpoint.
A long standing, diflicultv w as
mutually settled between Mr.
Nelson of Lynn Valley and the
district council. About a year
ago the council in making some
repairs to the road near Mr.
Nelson's property construi ted ,1
'culvert, that, as alleged by Mr.
[Nelson, has been a continual
nuisance to him ever since, as
the water Irom the ditch found
its way over his laud, and as a
consequence he wa.s not able to

The matter had been placed 111

Mr. Nelson was present to try
and ellect some adjustment. It
was liually agreed that Mr.Nelson bc paid $2oo to cover oul-

Mr. Nelson accepted these conditions and the matter w.is
