ICCOUul 'o( next vmr.
Initially, the mooting psmiod a roaolu-
tion to tbo following effect: "That,
having heard that there ia an application to bo prcaciilcd to the federal parliament tbia month by the C. P. B.
Company for a railway .'barter through

and Ibat a copy of thia resolution lie

Tbe chairman, Mr. .1. Neat (and an
si,'iiKiinii ia due lo bim on bia t'ui
iii, in ni of a .ii ii„ nli QlBoo) called prim
iirilv on Ibo reove, who gavo a reaume
nf municipal activitieti during Ibe paal
year. Tbo reovo, however, reserved hia
onergies lor a apeerb of candidature
which wae appointd for a Into hour. Ho
touched upou the harbor poialbilitiet
at which Mr. Stum bad recently been
clearly "aaloniahed." "Tlioro ia nothing," laid tbo rcevo, "to prevent
North Vancouver being aa big a bar
bor aa Vancouver. The only thing wo
lack ia juat that bridge acroaa tbe
Narrows." He devoted a little time
to the f|uoetton of roads. "A man in
tho Statea," aaid be, "declares tbat
,the aalvatien of any country ia a good
wtgon road lo every man'a houae."
It had heeu the council'a ambition to
make (or tho altaiiimout „i thai end
as much aa poseiblc. Mr. McNaught,
doubtleaa, remembering the nature of
certain portions of the weekly corrci
pondence, added rather bitterly "but
ita a mighty bard undertaking le aat-
ia(y'every individual." The reeve continued in a prophotic vein. He thought
that neit yoar tbat tbcie u„,l.| be a
lidowaik lo every rcaidcut's door in Ibe

atudicd by Coun. Bridgman, reported

explanation of bia work in connection
witb Ibe hospital, tn institution which
under city and municipal control,
ibould be treated more squarely than
in tbo paat.
The chairman tbeit intimated tbtt
aapiriug candldatee ("perapiriug"
perhaps be a more apt term, acoing that
tbe coupcjl chamber waa now deplorably hot) would be given tn opportunity to tddroaa tbe eleclori.
Beovo McNaught wai lengthy and
emphatic. He Drat uf all tickled the

who advocated that company were

was loudly applauded.

culaled signed by Mr. ii. A. Barrett,

til, Mr- Gibson tnd Mr. Allan, his
supporters. At the invitation of Couu.
Bridgman, both the reovo and Coun.
Allan emphatically denied having anything to do with tho circulation of tho

which were ovidently satis(actory to
the audience ,plcaden earnestly witb
bis friends and supporters not to allow

Coun. Allan made a convincing ami

Among otbor things, he favored lhe

parlors, Bev. J. U. Hooper officiating.
Mr. Donovnii, who at the time of Ills
'lentli was 72* years old, was well-
known to rcaidouts of the eity by reason of his over genial bearing.
A meeting of the tbove association
was held on Wodnenluy night at tbo
school. Tlie. aposkcrs wore Mr. Wagg,
Mr. Loutot, Mr. May and Mr. Philip.
Tho flrat  speaker,  Mr.  Wagg,  cri-

Couu. Loutot in reply staled tint! lie
had a 24 fl. road like many others
and on that roud there were houses
tn tho value of (20,000. . Ho had no
sidewalk but hoped to get ono. The
ini, iin of the drainage question
showed a lack of knowledge on the
part of the previous speaker. He bad
no property on St. Jamea. The widening of Lonsdale was recommended by
Iho N. L. Aasociation months before
he bought his property. He dealt al
length on the work of the past year
ami tbo requirements of the futjtre
mid emphasized his knowledge of ward
.1 and the improvements required both
at Norlli Lonsdale and Cupiltqq. lie
urged Iho necessity of going ahead
with the financial arrangements for the
Mr. Philip promliod careful alien
lion to lhe needs of ward 3 and Ihen
went on to a lengthy defence of Mr.
McNaught. He urged the eleilors lo
support the present reeve. He contended thul the-linperial Car Co. guuruutce
of bonds would have been good (or
the district though be himself would
not lake slock iu lhe company is it
wes over ■ capitalized. He though!
that the fuel thul lhe shares mild (or

nothing to do wilh lbc gunruntec mat
ler. He gave full detailed information
in regurd lo lhe bridge and on beiug
questioned by Mr. Loutet suid that he
had received lhe information as a
friend of lhe reeve's uud supposed lhal
the reason he knew more (lion iDt
euaucil was because that the reove
im led bim.
Mr. May, in a brief speech, reiterated tbe fact that the reeve hud not
dealt wilb Ibe governmeut diplomatic
ally uud had latterly hindered the
bridge more than helped it. He would
work wilb bis couucil, uot against
them and try to j>ring harmony into
Ihe couucil end lhe staff and workmen
and push on the Second Narrows bridge
wilb lhe assistance of bis council.
He was ugainst tbo guarantee of
bonds of the ear company as pay man
with the inieresl of Ibe district at
hcurl  ought  to be.
He did not sec why tbo reeve could
not work for lhe interests of the bridge
as t director and let the district have
another director iu tbe person of bim

I glanced at Burke's pallid featurea
and found thorn as Impassive as any
Inilliin'ii. -It was Impoealble to determine whether be wu watching me or
Maillot.   -
Evidently nssumiug tba Incident to
bo closed, Stodger saw bis opportunity
to speak oguln.
"i.iiupi, out here that brought It,"
eald ho; "coachman, be looks Ilka;
waiting for an answer." Then ba
turned to t.ic, continuing;
"Four reporters out there, too; wbat
shall I do with 'em?"
Maillot suddenly startled us by smiting tho table violently with his fist.
Ho was while, trembling, and appre-
benslvo; but his determination wu by
no means broken.
Ti'. in." Bald he, In a bushed, strained voice, "hiep iiiiiii.) with me; let me
bave a word wltb you."
He sclzod my arm, and fairly dragged me off toward tbo curtained alcove.
"Swift," ho whispered, not releulng
his grip qo my arm, "I'm In a devil of
a position. For Heaven's sake, show
some sign of bumauilyl That note
waa from a young lady—*'
"I surmised as much."
"Hung It, man! Don't luughl I'm
moro dead In earnest than' I ever v.iw
before lu my life.   This means more
10 mo—lo in r ilmii you can by any
possibility conceive, astute officer of
lhe law though you may ho."
My expression mum have contlued
something ol surprise al bis vehemence for with an effort ho abruptly
chucked himself and at once went on
more calmly!
i "Swift. It's the young lady I expect
some day lo many; Bho's heard a rumor of the n.iii, ily. and Is worried
about mc. The uole was broubht by
bor coachman, and sbe's walling ou

I tiled haul lo consider what wu
bed lu du. Enter a woman Into a case
like litis, and assured conduct hocqmes

laid mure ul the mailer before me.
"Shea n sensitive, high-strung girl

Agulu I Interrupted. 1 trust tbat I
may In all inudesty record Ibat I have
more than a spurk uf the feelings io
which lhe yuung fellow made such a
passionate appeal.
"i.uok here. Maillot, baa tbe young
lady a companion?"
"Yes usually; a young lady cousin
who lives with her."
"Very Well. If tbey liappan to bo

quite easily. Answer ber nolo; request the twu of them lo come here

He eauglil and wrung my hand.

said iissi'iih i.i i>. and hurried back io

However, I did not forget tbat I

this basis is readily apparent, namely,
it is necessary lo provide ailei|ttat.i representation for the outlying sections
of the province whicii while of eitan
"iv.. territorial ares sre as yet hut
sparsely populated. The result is tliat
if it woro endeavored to arrive at a
unit of population to apply throughout
the entire province for purposes of re
presentation, the number of members
returned from the morn populous districts would lie increased lo many
times that which is either necessary
or desirable for Hie transaction of the
business of tho province. The house
as al present, constituted contains a
sufficiently large number of members
when the population of the province
as a whole is considered ami while it
is not lo be supposed that a redislri
button bill can be framed without increasing that number mure or less, yet
it will be generally recognized as dl-
sirahlo that the increase be conltned
lo the smallest practicable proportions.
Should the surmise of tho "Week"
as to a provincial election soon after
the termination of the present session
prove correct, it is safe In conclude
lhat the new railway policy of Ihu
I',ss, n,in,-ni Intimations concerning
which Premier Mcllride has thrown
out upon several occasions v. ill be the
basis of lhe government's appeal to
Hie electors.
i'i,,n, Ihe niiisii,' of lhe remarks
which tlte Premier has made upon different occasions, il would' appeur Unit
the railway policy which the govern
ment is about t/i Iuy before the house
will embody a comprehensive scheme
of railway conitructlon throughout the
province upon a scale commensurate
with Ilie needs of tlio province fur rendering readily accessible and for pro
uniting tin- speedy unli/uimu and development of thu magnificent nuliirul
resources which arc as yd untouched
for  lack   of  transportation   facilities
lu replying to the petition of lhe Peace
liner lluilwuy delegation Premier Me
llride suisl that if the province were
Isi be provided with that mileage of
railroads Unit   is actually needed     In
keep  plleo  with  the  ,, ,|',i I' I,       Vail
cuuver Island, iiutfead of having only
i'i miles of railway as was
the ease until very recently,
should have four or live hull
tired miles ami the equipment of the
mainland should lie made uu Iho satin:
scale, He further intimated thai when
the railway bill was made public il
would be seen that the government
had followed out this conception of tlte
situation iu framing the bill and fur
ther, that provision had been made
with respect to the project favored by
Hie delegation such as he thought
would be considered satisfactory
lu committing Itself to a project of
the proportions which would appear to
be designated by these statements, it
would mil lie surprising If ths government considered it wise to seek the
endorse! ion of the people, which, when
lecured, would give them a lull term
in which lo carry forward that policy
without interruption. Under preient
'/itidltions three sessions of tlie existing
term will have elapsed at tka close
of the present aeesion and it is Bcarce
ly to be expected that a railway policy
suck aa enuacleted would be undertaken
witk but a rsmnlnt of tke term to
work upon In view of the fact that au
appeal to tke people Is fully justifiable
under tbe circumstances aud thoroughly
coustlmtopei-M well.'

Contrary to the usual practice the Assessment Notices (or
1912 have been sent to the registered owners of property
according to lhe Land Registry record?. i        ,,,
Up to the present, purchasers have been in the habit of
notifying the city authorities that the property had changed hands
io that notices of assessment and taxation should not go astray.
This foim of registration of owners has heretofore been deemed
sufficient for city purposes, but owing to a recent decision tf ie
city council is advised by its solicitors to recognise these owners
only who appear on the records of the Land Registry Office.
Unfortunately a great many never register their deeds or agreements.
The Norlh Vancouver Land and Improvement Company
has received numerous assessment notices for 1912 for property
which it has sold and whicii has since changed hands two or (hree
The Company, therefore, desires lo notify persons who have
purchased from it that they should lake steps to ensure notices
of assessment and taxation being sent to them so lhat they may be
come aware of the value at which ihey are being assessed and
pay taxes as they fall due.

Dear Hir, The Eait Capilano Hale
payers' Association meeting convened
last night in the school house and lhe
last guns of the municipal campaign
were lircd in a manner which denotes
a determination on the purl of lhe
members lo make this election one lutig
lo be remembered bolh in Hits district
and surrounding country. The feeling
uf the meetng strongly advocated a
change, ami no doubt they will go uul I
after what tbey want. Ml- MOfjiV*
PHlSlPll speaker of the evening, do|i-
vend arj.addraas wbleh clearly revealed to tbs audience his ability lo Sit at
tho head of the table at the gut council of the district Uo very cleverly
defended himself against the shafts of
falsehood ami scandal which were repeatedly hurled at bin) and when he
had Unladed it was quits evident that
the old war bona was as At and eager
for ths battle as ever he was and tkat
is going some.
Mt, Wagg very clearly outlined his
platform for the coming year and
manifested a dusire to put his opponent Into clear with I volume of questions that would stagger a horse, but
Mr. Loutet teemed quite equal to tbe
occasion aqd etplained hlmielf clearly
on all questions asked. Personality
and tbo usual amount of election mud
flew fait and furiously at timet but
good Judgment on the part of the audience and chairman kept things quite
..- .p.'. table considering.
Tho last but not least speaker of
tbe evening, Mr. Alexander Philip, de
livered an addresa which for volume of
words and impression was not wanting
in any stage of the game. He very
clearly eipreised his desire to itreugth-
eu Ihu hand of Reeve McNaught whom
he seems lo imagine ia the only man in
the world who cnuld possibly get the
Hecuiid Narruwi bridge. A man whn
turns down our aaiuciation by his ah
sence on the last meeting before elections, sil,en we have never had the
pleasure of hearing him express his
views on any matter and Mr. McNaught
mosl remember lhal tujLiuJong ago
we had a school treat and I notice
lhat the chairman uf Iho school board
could not Aud lime to alien.I, but he
sends along a miserable type written
.'..'iee for his absence from our asso
ciation meeting iu order that he might
an.'i..l the opening uf lite school in
Lynn Valley. Now that is not considered a very good way to gain favor
md any consequencei arising out of
sueh a. nuns, such contemptuous treat
