By way of prologue, Socrotury J.

Mr. F. Salsbury resigned his position as chairman of the finance committee on the (ilea of ill health. Tin'

tho council, emanated from the scire
tory of the ferry directorate requesting Mii'i'oi'i to the petition to be for
warded to the provincial government
for the appointment uud equipment of
a harbor warden for North Vancouver.
On tlie million of Mr. G. 11. Muidiii.
it was decided lo endorse this actipn
of the'ferry board.

time North Vancouvor would be iu a
very favorable position for doing
business. The president . .plwrvc'l
Beeve Muy among his audience and
called upon bim In dilate en bis trip lo
Ottawa.
The reeve did not know whether he
ought to report officially on Hint trip
or nut. Of course, it bad most of it
got into ibe newspapers, but Ills iii i
report, be imagined, ought to be made
lo his council. However. l\ could
assure llic meeting there had been a
very favorable bearing al Oltnwa The
Minister of Railway, was pretty ijuiik
and pretty abort. He did nol porriil ol
lengthy explanations. He asked whither there uerc tiny objections lo the
pluu before bim uml they replied in
the negative. He took M"lioM by sec-
Lion, and in the end said "I will give
uu order accepting this plan li written
order."
Tbut constituted the verdict, "ll is
indeed gratifying lo know,'' snbl lii-eie
May, "that wc ure going to but - the
(.'. I', R. on here under business coudi
lions. Wc have been waiting a loti;.'

during lbe past month recciied Inr

year.
II wa. decided tbat Mr. -Morden
Imiilil represent lbc board ou lbc Van

cation.
The president called lbc meeting's
attention to the i|Uesliou of employ
incut. He considered Ibal some ar
ruiigeiiii'iils ought to be made where
by people could gd'information as In
wborc tbey could liud lbc kind of em
ploymcnt they desire lo obtain. He
though! tbit should gel Mr. Steven*
lo take the matter up aud see if it
was not possible lo arrange sonic em
ploymcnt scheme so that people ami
ing in tbe country could secure full
information as to where their parlitu
lar kind of work is most iu demand.
It was a mailer to be bandied by lbe
provinces of lhe Dominion and by Ibe
railway conipaolei. Tbe local agency
bad done fairly good work in Ibe abort
lime it had existed, bul il was iuadr
i|uulc considering the great amount of
labor tbat was coming.lhat way.
Mr. Alex. Philip lUfgeitoyf Ibal the
president and secretary should draw
up a suitable communication lo be sent

Ibat during the eight month, of the

ami women bad found employment.
Mr. Isaac Wablcu thought lbc matter

GOVERNMENT   RAILWAY   POLICY
IN ITt EOLATION TO THB

When Premier .Mcllride appenletl to
the country le»« than three year* age
he bated lhat uppeul upon a policy of
railroad development for the province
which wa* unlvenally acclaimed a* an
ambition* *cheme, worthy the roputa

lently adapted to tnawer tho require
ment* of the Immeiliale future, On
Tumilny Itit however Ihe Premier laid

the immediate undertaking of yet

province may be pla< i I in possession

portlona nf Ihe province readily acre*

ibe fliKn.nl *treiigih of t|m prm
line is ilirh thai the uioni'tary obllga
linns Involved do uot ronalltulr any
thing more than an ordinary factor, In
the problem.
To tay that the North Shore of Hur
rard Inlet view* with >allafai'tiiin, Ihe
assured prosper! of the iniiimdiate ron
Itriwtlon of a line of railway, from
llm r|ty of North Vamouier to Fori
Hung, via Howe Sound and I'ember
ton Meadow*, I* to ilale thu rase very
mildly Isdotd, Tbe i onitroi lliin of this
line will remove every olntaele which
ha* iiiiii. nn prevented the progre*a of
Ibe Nortb Hhore. It will link Nortli
Vaneouver eity and dlilrlcl, with the
grnl iraiis.'.inliiiriital railway lytbtms
whlrb are converging at Burrard Inlet.
II open* up a vlila of rapid and phen>
'imenal progteu lurh ai saliige* the
imagination of the moat optmiiatii'
Mendaof tht North Short.
IVrhitps lhe best method of tjrprtt-
•Ing tha ilgnilranrt of thla iltualion
to lhat it will bt moat readily understood, la to aay that* witb due allowance for tba fart tbat tba Nortb Skate
'• Iwenlytve yem llttl in getting
started, tbe lonstrudiou of tbli line
will plara Nortb Voflhtfer, on a par
witk tbt cily tt Vajfttw. Under
' tkt wr ordtr, wjoditionJ^tbey btv*
tblolotd «i tbt louth tbort of tkt
inlet daring tke put ten yeara, may
bt expected to repeat themielm ou
the North Short, but with greater
rapidity. Tbere are certain very pot
tnt advautagea available to Nortk
Vancouver, from the faet that it ha*
arrived a quarter of a century later
than the cily on the toulh thore of the
harbor, Tbere txiiti to-day, a great
centre of population on Burrard inlet,
which wa* not known twenty live years
ago, ami thi* will ht conducive to much
more rapid development upon Ihr
north ilnTc, comparatively. Tke pop
ulatlon of Ihe province i* many times
greater lhan it was al that tint tad
Iht ttage of development it much
farther advanced. Hurrard inlet is
now tht converging point of practically
all Ihe great traairontineaia! railway-
line*, whereat the C. P. B. wa* tke tole
representative on tbe inlet twenty Ave
yeart ago. The prairie provinces havt
multiplied their population time and
time again during the put twenty Ave
yeart until today tkey rontlitute a
hinterland of untold value to the
growth and development of the rout.
Hriii-.li Columbia tccupiei a much
more Important position in Ihe eye of
the world than wat the rate a genera
lion ago. Momentous development* of
world wide importance have taken
plt.e and are now taking place which
render pottible much more rapid pro
great than wat pouible when Van-
ouver wa* founded—tuch aa the
awakening nf Japan, the awakening
of China, the ronatructioti of the
I'anama canal.
All of lie-i' consideration* point to
the fact that the unexcelled natural
advautagea pn»»n»»«il by the North
Shore for the crralion of a great com
martial ami industrial seaport centre,
coupled with the well nigh ideal eon
dii inn* whlrb now exist aa outlined
above, will enable Norlh Vanrouver
lo develop at a pace hitherto unequalled in lhe nni.nli. of rily building, now
lhat Ibo railviy poliry of the govern
ment ha* given the needed I'otiiiertioii
with llm great tramuontinenlal railway
systems.
ll is particularly gratifying that
thia development of public policy
whieh lias removed all obstacles and
baa cleared llm way for this gruat ad
.ain elm ni oii the North Shore, Is due
to llm action of llm provincial gov
eminent During the year* now pail,
through which thu citizens nf North
Vancouvtr have lieen wailing llm
dawning of llm day of real progress
and proaperity, they have eaat their
eyes hopefully, now here, now there,
Imt always to meet with disappoiiil
inept, ' They will certainly duly appre
nuto tho fart that it was to the en
terprislng policy and the kindly eon
■iderttlon of Premier Mi-Bride and hi*
iidmlniatralion that the dlffinultio* wero
Anally removed and Ihe gateway

Wr. A. G. Perry agreed with Mr.
Wnlili'ii. |Ie further meutioned that
in the eaat immigration sheds were
provided aa a shelter for all fresh ar
rival). In the west thoy bave only
provided sheds for .the accomodation
for tbe Orientals who arrive hero.
Mr. G. H. Morden did imi see why
tba two governments could not work
in harmony. Uat year 75,000 poople
were added to the population of
British Columbia. The speaker did oot
thi ilk Ihey need to go beyond the
bordera of tbe province to see that this
great army of immigrants aro taken
ctre of. Tbt problem shoulil be
handled from t British Columbian
standpoint.
The president osplained that his
idea was to establish a regular chain
of information bureaus right through
the country.
"Ah! iiiiii" whore you want tliem!"
exclaimed Mr. Wood.
Mr. Wai,leu did not think thut
intending immigrants from the old
lands wunld listen to tho advice of
these bureaua. Men and marbles had
a way of rolling of tbeir own.
It waa resolvud on tho motion of
Mr. Philip that a letter on tbe subject
be forwarded to Iho Minister of the
Interior, Emigration lloparlmciit, of
tbe provincial government.
Mr. Stephen fathered a proposal to
start a Canadian Club in Norlli Vaneouver.
Mr. Morden said that tho matter
had been eonsidered a little time ago,
but had been dropped owing to shortage of funds and no speakers happen
ing along. He was however in favor
of experimenting and seeing how jt
worked oul.
Tlio president wondered if the government could not be prevuilud upon
lo liuild a highway into the 1'eaee
Hiver Country. On the completion or
such road, he would willingly treat all
those present at the meeting to an
automobile trip into Ihe hinlerlainl.
The following motion was passed on
the motion of Mr. Philip, itcondtd by
Mr. Morden: "That this Hoard nf
Trade expresses its satisfaction with
1 the arrangements made for the construction of a railway from North
Vaueouver to Port George ami hopes
these arrangements will speedily
materialize. Further the board hopes
that an extension of this railway into
the Peace liner country may soon be
authorized ami assisted lo give connection with that large and fertile
region."

"Having always heeu a lou'r of

some time before Ihtl if my hounds
could run a bear down aud worry him
"nni I came up and killed him they
mul do the same with lions. Por
this I selected Afteeo of my best bear

not run deer, and, as all of our bear-
Hunting ill Mississippi is done in a
country that i* full of deer, I concluded the bearhound* were jutt the
tbing.
"Whon I arrived in Nairobi with
my hound* tbere waa great speculation
as to what would happen when 1 put
tbem on a lioo. Home said lhe lions
would kill every hound I had; other*
•aid Ihe bound* would run lion* all

NOTICE
TO HOLDERS OF NON-REGISTERED AGREEMENTS FOR SALE
Contrary to the usual practice the Aueument Notices for
1912 have been sent to the registered owners of property
according lo the I ..unl Registry records.
Up lo the present, purchasers have been in the habit of
notifying lhe rily authorities that the property had changed hands
so lhal notices of assessment and taxation should not go astray.
This fonn of registration of owners has heretofore been deemed
sufficient for city purposes, but owing to a recent decision the
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 ti^cir deeds or agreements.
The Norlh Vancouver Und and Improvement Company
has received numerous assessment notices for 1912 for property
which it has sold and which has since changed hands two or three
times.
Tlie Company, therefore, desires to notify persons who have
purchased from il that they should lake steps to ensure notices
of assessment and taxation being sent to them so that they may become aware of the value al which they are being assessed and
pay taxes as they fall due. '
