Tlu- qiii-stion ol grades occupied i prominent part in the proceedings ol last evening's cona-
til meeting. While the matter

when s committee of six rale-
pavers will be appointed to coaler wilh tin- council looking lu

movement had lieen started
which would ultimately result
in a settlement of ihe matter,
His Worship was in the chair
and all the aldermen were present.

lo spoil   Lonsdale   Ave."      He
thought tlu- matte could be
discussed and a decision arriv

Aid Fowler said lie wuuld
like lo go into the matter   in
Mavor     "Is   lhat the   grade
recommended by the engineer ?"
Engineer :  "it is in accord
a iht with report ol 140;. It is
not what I Intended lo do."

Aid.   McNeish explained tha)
the ciuitcur of the- land at thai
point sloped to the west and in
putting a straight grade 'on
15th street it would of MC-
cssilv take a cut on the wist

borne by the citv, but it was
actuated bv a desire lo provide
the citizens ol North Vancouver with I safe tramway sir
vice. He said his company had
gone to great expense in order
to keep grades down to IS1., pei
cent. In North Vancouver on
Lonsdale Ave. the maximum
grade exceeded X per cent, and
one or two regrettable accidents had occurred and in order
to eliminate this danger he appealed for due consideration ol
any further increase. He un
derstood that benching would
increase lhe grade oil Lonsdale
Ave to 12 per cent, and he
contended thai 1 street car
could not be unrated over that
no matte what safety appliances were used except at a risk
trhich the coinpanv neither
conld nor would be justified in
asking the public to incur.
Mr Sperling pointed out that
the operation of trainwavs was
subject to the Provincial Tramway Inspection Ait and it is
within the power of the itispci
tor under that Act to prevent
the company from operating

which in the opinion of the Inspector could not safely be operated, Mr. Sperling felt reasonably satisfied that looking to

your city to establish bench
grades at street intersections
OU Lonsdale Ave. As it wollld
be impossible lo establish these
grades without increasing at
several points our present
grade line on that slreel, 1 beg
to suggest that as the present
grade on Lonsdale Avenue is
very steep, any alteration in
grade which would make the
operation even in a small degree more hazardous than it
now is, would not be fair to either the public or my Compaay,
I, therefore, beg to request that
before taking any action in the
direction named, you will give
this matter vour verv serious
consideration and I trust the result of vour deliberations and
investigations will convince you
that in the interests of all concerned the present conditions
should not be altered for
the worse.     Yours truly,

Bear Sir,—I hnve a copy ol a
letter written by vou to o'.ir
general manager on the r 7til
inst regarding question ol
grades    in the   cilv of    North
Your engineer, Mr. Unites,
tailed yesterday regarding this
matter and I Went over the
matter with him frankly, dis
itissing the grades on various
slreets, and have advised him
lhat the B C E. K. Co, is only
too glad lo see anv improvement made in North Vancouver
the onlv i|iu-stioti being in this
particular case that in any rearrangement of grades you
make we would nol want to sec
the grades increased, for, as
vmir council no doitbi knows
and appreciates, lo increase the
grades on any of the norlh and
south streets will simply mean
added risk in operation, and
something, 1 am sure, you
would not eare to have any
more lhan wc would care to.
This Company is Irving to
hold its stillest grades (or iiiy
vvurk, wherever possible, lo below t,'. per cent, and in (act, has
and is spending large sums of
moMV t" keep grades down to
this limit.
The presenl maximum grade
on Lonsdale Ave is something
over H jut cent., and we nave
been advised thai the airange
men! suggested will mean over
a to per cent, grade. The only
(|ticstion that the B. C. E. Ry.
Co. wishes to call your attention to is the (|iiestion of saletv
to the public bv this arrangement, and one, ive feel sure,
that is of as iniich interest to
you as it is to us.
1 will be onlv too glad to
ineei vour Council and give the
Computus reasons lor objecting to anv inerease ol grade and
also distiiss the ipiestii.n wilh

to lome to a solution of the

Consulting   Engineer
On .'une 2nd, tutu, Mr. Mollatt, consulting engineer of the
B. C. Electric Kailway Co,
was present and stated III pall
that his company was not so
much Interested in tin- system
ol gtades which the eity mighl
adopt so long as the gradients
on which street car lines are at
present being operated ait* not
steepened. It was a matter of
safety in operation which his
company wished the council to
consider and he intimated that
if the report of the commission
of engineers were to be adopted
by lhe council such would seriously affect the operation of
the tramline on Lonsdale Ave.,
and his company would seriously consider the advisability of
discontinuing lhe operation of
a street car line on that Ave.
The report of commission
(consisting of Engineers Thomson, Clement and Hanes) was
read and discussed, after which
Aid. McNeish moved and Aid.
McKae seconded that "the recommendation of the engineers
be adopted in their entirety."
The motion was defeated on
the following division :

Against — Aldermen    Irwin,

question in North Vancouver.
Yours truly,

To His Worship the Mavor and
Members of the Council of the
Citv of North Vancouver :
Gentlemen,—Whili discussing
the Nortii Vancouver grade
problem with one ol vour members, Mr. S. 1). Bchalti on Saturday afternoon, he asked me
to outline in a letter lo him
how far I am adhering strictly
to the benching system in cs-
tablishing grades in the City of
Vancouver, and where I am departing from same, and my reason! for doing so.
1 have written'tO Mr. Schultz.
and am em losing a copy of the
letter herewith so that all of
your members may be in possession ol the same reports and
information. As a much better idea can bc obtained of the
ellect of adopting anv particular
system of street grading In
viewing the finished work on
the ground, I shall, if vour
memberi and vour engineer are
sufficiently Interested, be verv
pleased to show and explain to
ton how the problem is being
worked out in this citv.
Yours respectfully,
Vancouver, B. C,

S  I). Schultz, Esq.,
ms Pender St.,
D.ar Sir—,In compliance -ii'li
vour request during our 1 111-
versatioii on Saturday Concerning the grade question in N .rlli
Vancoaver, and the last clause
iii my report, in which I recommended 'he adoption   of   the
benching   system   in    grading
streets, but pointed out that il
ttas   not impossible   to    grade1
fairly   steep   streets    without
benching, 1 shall   now ratline,!
how far I am adhering to the
benching system in establishing
permanent grades in lhe City M
Vancouver, and where I am departing from same.
Iu establishing grades on all
new streets, that is streets on
which there are no permanent
improvements, such as pavements and sidewalks, I am adopting the benching system, il
the rate of grade exceeds i per!
Cent., and im making the ratlin' grade aiross the benched   or
Battened portion at intersections I1., per cent. ; this gives a
fall of one foot across a M> foot
In establishing grades on the.
wide main thoroughfares, such
as Westminster Ave. and Gran- a
villi- street, where the grades
arc steep and the distance between intersecting streets short
I have disregarded the benching
principle and made the grades
as straight as possible and am
Continuing to do so. My reason
(or adopting this COUTH is because I am of opinion that in
lhe case of main thoroughfares
or arteries of travel with stu-p
grades such as Westminster
Avenue alld Granville slreet in
Vancouver, where vears of use
has led property owners to mn
sider the grade as established,
ii is justifiable to sacrifice the
intersecting side streets   for   1
short  distance (abonl   100   or
ISO   feet 1   tather   than  ilu reuse
llie grade of the main .street.
Benching has been adopted lit
all cilies of importance in this
country, and is considered to Inin line with the best engineering
practice, but occasions will a-
rise in the carrying out of all
rules and systems where advantages can be gained by adopting
certain modifications,
1 am enclosing copies of letters from Tacoma, Portland,
Oakland and I.os Angeles with

Should the representation

however (or practicall) so 1 and
the western provinces be given

when the east territory in
