FULL  STATEMENT   OF  POSITION
OF BOTH PARTIES
The differences existing between tho
ilistric| couucil oi West Vancouver und
the Pacific Great Eastern railway havu
delayed for the, preseut thc approval
"i a portion of the location plan of tbo
right of way of that railway ou tbe
North Shore. The location plan frum
thu north eud of Beeoml Nurruws to
the city limits lum been approved as
has also that thruugh the eity itself.
The portion, therefore, which still ro
mains to be negotiated is that extouil
ing from tbe west bouudary of tbe
city to a poiut near Caulfield's.
When thu proposed location plan was
first submitted to the district council,,
Ihut budy by resulutlon instructed that
a letter be seut tu the Miuister of Uuii
ways at Victoria, protesting agaiust
tito proposed route of the P. G. I-:
railway through West Vancouver -municipality as shown un the map sub-
mil ted by thc railway compauy and
pointing out to the Miuister that such
a Hue us lueated wuuld not be of beuclll
to the municipality ami would bu of
great detriment lo the owners of tore
shore properties.       ,
As the hearing uf the application fur
the approval of the plans at Victoria,
the mup was approved as fur the por
tinus noted shove and the application
wus postponed with refercpee to tiial
portion of the runic lying within the
i........ inn. of West Vancouver iu urder to give the parties an opportunity
tu confer, will) a view te the adjust
ineiil iif their differences.
At u meeting uf uwncrs uf foresbore

company; personal claims, riparian

lu accordance wilb the understand
ing with the Miniiler of Bailwayi, a
conference wu held oo Wednesday be
tweeu the Weit Vaueouver council and
Ibe repreientalivei of tbe Pacilic Great

diseuiied in til iti pluses tnd it wu
decided to tdjuurn in order to permit
Ibe diitriit council to preptre a plan
of tbe route wbicb tbey would iug
gest tbat Ibe railway follow. This plan
will be prepared u expeditiously u
possible aod wben it ii ready anotber
meeting will bo beld. ..
In discussing tbe situation witb a re
proscntalive of tbe Kxprcss, Mr. Jobn
Callegban, Chief Kngineer for tbe Pacific Qreat Eulern Bailway Company,
wu of opisloo tbat tbe proposed routo
woold not be satisfactory for tbt railway company apd Ibat If would aot
worb to tbt ad vaa tagt of tbt property
owjiere of tbe district. He stated tbat
la ruuning tke line along tbt waterfront
between bjgb ud low tide, Ml com
pany would bt utilising proptrty tbat
wtt not latl^lJanrtviblt.  Tbt right
of-way in this location would cost' tbe
railway company leas in tho first instance that wuuld ouu further nortb,
but on tho other band the cost of construction would be much greater luun
much us tho track would require to bo
bridged practically all tho way, and
the whule right-of-way would have to
bo filled in afterward, in order to
reach the level which was proposed
by thc council, tbo route would have
to be ultered for a considerable dis
tancc cast of thu district boundary and
the cost of tbo right of way to tho rail
way cunipuny wuuld be uiiormuusly in
creasud. If the railway lines were run
where tho council proposed, it would
mean that there would be vury frequent
crossings of streets sume ut right nn
gles ami some at uthur angles, all of
which wuuld very materially increase
thc iinm nin. . of railway uporution. By
runuiug the line ulong the foreshore,
however, this dilllculty wuuld bu reduc,
ed to a minimum for not only would
the streets tu be crusscd be comparu
lively few in number but the street
ends would be utilised for purposes that
would uul hamper railway opcrutiuu tu
anything like the sume degree as would
be the cuse buck iu u busiucss or residential section. Wilh respect to industries un the waterfront, the ouly
pructicablc inethud of giving railway
service lo such would be by ruuuiug
thu lines ulong the wuterfroiil. Willi
the railway Hues placed us the compauy proposes it would be u very easy
matter to give a pruperty owner a side
track to the wbarf uulsidc the railway
tracks ur tu a wurchooec inside the
tracks. .If, however the ruilwuy line
wore run on the north side uf Ihc Mu
riue drive, it would be practically iui
pussiblc for owners uf waterfrout properties tu got .- nil un. 1. tu their pru
perlies fur the reasuu iu lhe first pluee
that iu i.iiuie Ionian.,'.-. u feasible grade
coulil uut be had ami iu uther instances
the cost would be prohibitive inasmuch
as it would be necessary to run the side
track at an acute angle frum thu maiu
line duwu lo the waterfrout, a prhcess
that wuuld cut through a very large
number of high priced iuts, In each
instance, piling lhe eust uf right uf way
up su high Hist prupcrly uwucrs wishing a railway spur for industrial pur
poses would liml the eusl uf that spur
prohibitive, lu addition tu the ubove,

crossings un titu Marine Drive, which
would be necessary iu each instance lu
whicii a "put wus put iu, uniilil be very
heavy, finally, Mr. Callugbpu directed attention to llie fuel that thu l'u
cite Great Eastern will be the first
railway to uclually build aud operate
a line along Ihc Nurth Shure uud -if

Tbe property amounted tn between
$7,000 and (8,000 in gold, all of which
tbe bank paid over lo O'Neil tbe fol
lowing day.   He returned tu tbo Main

charges made by the engineer agaiusl
uie were entirely groundless and un
just, but, sine.' it Ti your requeit to
have them in writing, I will relftrate
them a* Aarly ai pwtible,
In the beginning, after reading Mr.
Coegrove'i note. 1 asked bim if il eon
iaiiied a specific ur a general charge,
lie declined to answer, Mr. loutet, in
iinswi'iiiig for bim, aaid tbat It' wa* a
specific charge in regard lo the quarry,
and iiml (here were too many men
iiiployi'd at llie quarry aad ** * result
some of ilicrn were loitering. Tbii, I
successfully refuted snd proved to bt
without fee«d»tion, for tneie reueatt
I'lrit, not ouly waa tbere enough work
for tk* qo»rry gang, but alao for iii
nin fron Foreaa* laam' gang, wbo
wara  removing  the  earth  ami  debria
from the (op of tbe ruck in tbe quarry,
Tliia covering was from two tu sd feet
in thickness'ami extended the full width
uf llm road allowance. To have tbe
work properly carried on so ai to allow
the quarrying of rock to proceed ns rapidly as wis called for, we ibould bave
| iind about fifteen extra men and livi'n
then Ibere would have beeu plenty of
work for all bauds. In this connection
I was told by Mr. Jsniiesoii, the water
superintendent, and alsn by the quarry
iTiiTTuun, that the engineer had let a
contract for the removal of the above-
mentioned, i'urlh covering. Tlii' egain
shows tbat tbore wae abundance and
tint too many mon In tbe quarry as
stated by tbe engineer.
Secondly, if there were too many mun
lu the ipiurry, and somu were loitering,
us Mr. l.iiiitci alleged, how could thu
engiueer, acting in the internets of the
peoplo, eoo Ot to ml'.-'nee the quarry
fureinau'l salary TUN lllll.l.AIIH (SUD
pur month when such alleged laiity prevailed, iin tho faee or tho charge
whicii he laid against the quarry would
it then be consistent for the engineer
lo ruisu tho foreman's aalaryl Ily thii
ouu act tliu engineer demonstrated In.-
yoinl the bi"i." nf a doubt that the
quarry was giving bim satisfaction,
Althuugh there was plenty of work for
Ihe men to do, yut had the engineer
given us levels through thu quarry which
wuru asked fur a mouth .previously,
we  "iiibi   have carried   on   Ihu  work
\nim ■ iiuUllwjaritl,-, ami. umuli time aud
mouey would bave been saved. When
asked witb reference to ihc grade on
tbis portion Of Windsor Huml, the Oil-
gineer li i in ml i, pointing to a white
reek in tbo cent re of tlie road said:
"The grade eterte from tiieru and runs
dowu tnis way. Tbere will bo about
tbree foet te Hll in through heru."
Tbii haphazard guess work wae in relation to tbat part of tho road running
directly through the quarry, Vuu cau
plaiuiy see that this kind of thing did
nut etpedite tbo working of tliB quarry.
Fm l Inu imu e, there weru uo other orders giveu to have anything done In
tho quarry than what was usual frum
one duy to the othor as tbo work pro
eended.
I bad no power lo taku any initiative in putting forward this nr any
other work unlum ordered by tliu
engineer. When I did auything which
wai obviously to au uili'uutugu without
III order, I wae reprimanded, and wllilll
1 ditl nut carry out what *wus ordered
tu a disadvantage I was persistently
asked fur roasuiu why it wus not duiiu.
l.ut mu elto particular cases!
In regard to the former Instance, a
windmill ueeurred un Wiiulsnr lluud
near liousilalo, and uu my uwn iitiulive
I had somo crushed ruck placed iu lbe
cm,Iiuiu to enable the sleuin wagon to
get up I "inn,Inle with ils Inad.' This
was imperative, as otherwise the engine
could not go up I.onsilule. I wasques-
United by the engineer us lu who put
ilml there, and when Informed tbat I
gave tlm inslrtieliiina to have it dons,
ho stated that 1 ahould not havo put It
there and felt quite indignant about it.
Hegarding the second Instance, T hud
un iinlnr to take gravel fpr Kolth road
from Histur Orook. The engiueer, as usual, iipcciiied Iiiii method I should pursue
ip carrying ou the work. 1 was ordered lu use an iron bucket iu raising
thu gravel from tho bed ef the creek.
This wus a very expensive proceaa and
llllt at all necessury. 1 was getting
gravel frum thu gravol pit at about one
third the cost, and tried to evade thu
"I'lei, but was cuul iniiuii v asked why I
did nut taku gravel from t1Jo crook.
I finally bad to fall in with bis order*
auil after taking half a yard of gravel
from the crock, abaiiiluued this method
us altogether too slow.
lieiiileini'ii, tbu fuels uru before you,
which I am prepared ut any limo tn
,ub ii'iiiii'ie Vuu can reud ily see thul
anything I did was strictly iu cum
I'bi'ii" with ordure ami this upplied
io the quarry as I have already point
mi out.
1 want you tn let mo know of yuur

VANCOUVEB
The universal hope will be enter-
tainml that the matters uuder negotiation between tho district of West Van
couver und tho l'ociflc Ureat Eastern
Bailway Company relative to the I'l"
1 posed ruute of the lines of tho latter
lliruugli the municipality, will not re
still in any lengthened delay of the
cniiiniiTiceiiieut uf the construction uf
the lines of the railway compauy on
the North Shore. To outer upon u discission editorially, of. tbe relative merits ul lliu position occupied liy the two
parties, at the present juncture wuuld
lie altogether out of place. The 1'uri
lie (Ireat Kaateru Ilailway Company,
since the incorporation uf the Gonipany
a few inuii il" ago, bave certainly created a new record iu tlie rapid and sue
cennfiil handling uf the preliminaries lu
railway conitructlon. They have giveu
every evidence of good faith in ull re
epeeti and have manifested a pijn-
iiiiiinccil desire lu treal with fairness
Niiiery interest which may lie arTccted
In their i.i. i. ii ium' These facte have
elevated Ihut ruiu^any tu a position of
high appreciation upon the part of the
puldic at large and especially upun the
|url uf that particular section uf the
puldic whicii is directly Interested in
lhe development of the Norlli Hhore.
1 'nI.ln opinion upon this side of the
Inlet Iiiih lieen gradually liut certainly
turning to the I'ueilie Ureal rin.nl. m us
ll.e muni reliable source to which to
liml. fur lliuse tangilile railway develop
tm nl>, which wuuld place North Hhore
interests upou a substantia! rummer
< ul baais. The prospects of auy pro
longed delay relative to the commence
ineiil of the conilruction of their lines
"nulil give rise lu the deepest regret ll
it lid not call forth vigorous protest
upon llic purt of lhe puldic. Ou the
ulher luiiul the council uf the district
nf West Vuncuuver have laid down
cerium precepts whieh Ihey believe to
I.e iu lhe puldic iuleresls relative to the
building of railway lines through the
iiiuiii. iiniiiii. They have already sub
in.iiul iinir position to the Dominion
Miinnlir of Itailways while he was
upon lhe ground, ami have met with au
em uuragiiig response. A meeting of the
iinenlinre property uwncrs bas passed a
r. ni.liitioii favoring the position of the
• iiiiim il. The Minister uf Itailways for
Ih.' province hus deferred to their wish
et in Ilic'mVler by postponing his own
.iniiuii iu Hn- premises iu the hope that
by conference the two parlies may be
nidi to arrive at an adjustment inu
I mill} satisfactory,
Meanwhile the roule of the I'acifi,
'irejit Ka.tcrn has been approved ns
Inr Ili.l section running llirough the
ilislriet „f North Vuncouver and thut
w* lum miming llirough the city of
Norlli Vancouver, and Ihe company is
proceeding lo arrange matters with re
n|c'i in im. purchase of properly along
lhe right of way.
The I'li.iliuii of matter, al present is
sucb that a delay uf a few weeks is
ineiliable, but should Ihe resumption
of negotiation! when thc diitrict coun
cil submit* Ihe roule imp, which they
tin now preparing, develop no promise
ol a .proily seltlymeut,^ is lo be hoped
Unit llic lli'pBriment of Kailwivs will
relieve the situation by deciding Ihe

belief that his administration will re

and .lmv.in;: as closo us possible those
commercial ties which are; perhaps,
more puwerl'ul than any uther iu binding tho Kmpire into a solidarity. It
is probable that his mission iu England hus furthered iu no smull degree
the uiniertuking upon which it is stut
ml tlie Minister m now cugugcil, namely
the formulation of a treaty of reciprocal trade between Canada nud Austru
Iiu. The fuel Unit pressure uf governmeut business has ruuscd the pustpune

tiotts. It hus long been recognized
Ihut such u treaty, if il could lie made
fur better trade relations with thai
"inliiieiil, wuulil redound very greatly
to Hit- beiiclil of I'ulil Dominions. There
arc recognised difficulties in lhe wuy,
une of which is lhe fuel Ihul Cunudu

pul imports from the sisler stute such

Cuinnlijin produels upon which lower
tariff charges would probably be sought
would be paper, lumber, fish, bouts und

the lirst three uf which British Cul
iimbiii is closely interested.
