At Hi.' public meeting (tke attend-
anco of wbicb showed that many cit
inni of Nortb Vancouver havo yel
to understand when a mutter Is vitally
important) Aid, Aleiander Smith pre
si.lent of the Board of Trado, occupied

be called immediately upon Solicitor
Ungl./ to addle.* the gathering.

scorned to demand.     While it may be
aaid tc bave   covered    most of tbe
[ground, it ouly covered it in precis.
The meetlug, however, sympathized
, witk Mr. Langley in ono sense; tbat
I ii to aay, inasmuch aa it required bim
to advocate support to persons whom
ba wai forbidden lo name. "What's
. iu S name!" demanded Sbahepearc.
"A whole let," aaid Nortb Vaueouver cltiioni ou Saturday nigbl.
Ur. Ungley said he bad come before
then to aik tkoir lupport to a scheme
wbicb involved a abort line of rail
way and a bridge acroaa tbo Nortk
Arm. Those at tba luck uf tke enter
prose were satisfied tkat the site of
tbe proposed bridge was probably tbe
beit ill* for a liridgo across Burrard
Inlet at any point. He did not want
to redact in any way upou the Second
Narrowa bridge scheme wbicb Ihis city
wu 10 wrapt up In; an tbo contrary
be secured tbem tbat this proposed
bridge would not conflict witb tbe
'Hwond Narrow! one,
Hr. Ungley felt it would ke pro-
sumption on kis part to talk about tbe
future of Nortb Vancouver to ill citi-
un*. Tbey were ell quite able to
koow wbat a difference tho opening
of tba Panama Canal was going to
make to tbs coast cities, including tbo
city of Nortb Vancouvor provided It
poaaoaae* transcontinental railway
facilities. "Thii company," continued
Ibi lolicitor, "propones to build a
bridge across tke Nortb Arm at its
narrowest point and owing to tke nature of tke bed and lbc depth of Ibe
water, tbe work can be completed for
all It* purposes at a coit uot exceed
ing one million dollars.''
Uf.   tnngley   proclaimed   himself
aware of tbe feet tbat thii city and
municipality bad been  "bitten" in
tke past by railway companies com
ing kere and projecting Unci along tke
erfront.   They did not eitecm tke
.•bo wliked lo get a paper chart
Mr. Langley poinlod out this

Ungley. ''We are quite prepared to

and complete it in five."
|p tbo afternoon diicussiou some
thing was said to tin effect tbat while
this big project pf tbs Second Narrows
bridge waa cn its bauds tbe city did
not fool inclined to recommend to the
government that aid should be granted
tbis compsny until tbe Second Narrows
bridge proposition waa under way.
Tbst w""1'1 ""'"" "l111 ""' ''oinpuny bo

"Tbii city," continued the speaker,
"ia just, awaiting transcontinental

that goea to make a great city except

every bit a* much oo tbe main line as
tbe city of Vancouver acroaa tbe Inlet. There ii uo gainsaying jt." He
hoped tbey would see lit to favor bis
application. The more bridges tbey
got tbe better it would be for tbem.
This company wai uot asking Norlh
Vancouvor for a cent. If they required any aid they would get it from tbe
government in tbe legitimate way, He
asked tbat meeting to pail a rosolu-
tion which would enable Mr. Steven* to
aid tbe company'i bill and let it go to
tbe house with bii approval at It* back.
Tbe meeting waa then invited by
tbo chairman to question Mr. Ungley

Mr. Ungley: "Tbo people wbo are

Mr. Knowlci: "You bave told ui

Mr. Ungley:" If It was found nee
osary to expend tbat amount on tbe
obtaining of right* of way it would
certainly be meney spent on tbe con-

Mr, Knowlcs: "You iay you are not

Another tranquil session. Tbe mayor |l)d aldermen, wearied perhaps ky
tho discussion of tbat Nurth Arm

languidly to tbe reading ef tbe correspondence end dispatched tbo rcgulur
business more briefly than usual,
A letter came from tbe deputy min

Then followed a communication from
Mr. J, p. Pell containing p proposition
to organize a company of militia field
enginecn with headquarters in North
Vancouver. "The militia department"
wrote Mr. Pell, "haa already sane
tionesl ltl organization and arc proper
ed to supply stores, equipment, etc. lpt
tbe proper training of tbe men. The
department will build an armory and
drill ball, provided tbe city will supply a suitable lite." Mr. Pell mon
tioned as a suitable and central cue
tbo site uow available in tbe south
eaat corner of Mahon Park on Jones
avenue aud sixteenth itreet. "At
preient," the letter continued, "tbere
jl np compsny of militia engineers in
Britlab Columbia, and in yean to como
North Vancouver engineers will lie a
source of pride to tbo citizens of Nortb
Vancouver, besides being a splendid
means of training tbe young men of the
city and district in order tbat tbey
may bo able to defend tbeir country in
time at need." Ip conclusion Mr. Poll
said bo bad received a petition signed, by about 80 to 104 Norlb Vancouver resislonls mostly young men anxious to enlist.
Tbe council favored tbe whole idea.
The question of supplying tbe site waa
referred lo tbe Parka Committee,
Bowser, Beid aud Wallbrldge wrote
relative to the claim of Mr. Syduey
Hogeri. Ai thoy undentood tho facts
tbe crcef iu questiou waa running
down Bidgeway avenue and waa a

been used or in any way affected by
any action ef tbe eity, but waa in ita
natural condition, and tbat tbii was
flooded owing to tbe extreme amount
of water wbleh came down it on Nov.
18th; Under theee circumataneei ■ the
solicitors could not ice in what way
the city was liable for any loss sustained by Mr. Sogers.
Mr. H. 8yd. Hancock jr. wrote reminding the council of the suggested
establishment of a municipal gas plant.
He aaked for a Kna) diacuaion of thie
matter for the guidance of the ioeom
Ing council, He reiterated tbe many
advantage! that would be lowed by
the instillation of a modern gaa plant
and tbe desirability of laying maim
prior to undertaking any very exleniive
program of street paving.

These changes wore not rendered iiceca
sury through defects in the wurk, but
through defects ip the system of laying tbo sowers required by the specifications, tbs same not being calculated to wifhtiinsl Hoods such as recently pcci|(re<|.
The letter continued to tbo effect
lhat the Arpi bad always done tboir
best tc faithfully perform all contracts
lint through delays and "through what
thpy considered unnecessary and un
reasonable exactions on the purl of
tbe engineers thoy had laat thouiauds

I'erred to committee.
The following two recoiiimciiiluliuiiii
were made by Iho Board of Worki:

been laid, streets cleared, and where

Aid. Dick rose to advocate the open

of the city was paying a large tax,
and there had been no expenditure on
that part of the city.
Aid. Kiltisun asked for au estimate of
tho cost of tbe work, but Aid. McBae
pointed out that the matter would be

a plank road which wu full of holes
and hte other wis full of mud. It wu

Hart* Vanoouver, B. 0,
Kevsabar 28, 1911.
Tb* ownon of property in tke city er
district pf North Vancouver aa a class
are folly alive to tbe immense advantage* that will aeeruo from the establishing of transcontinental railway
connection upon tba Nortb Shore.
Tbay are likewise possesses! of a due
appreciation of tke fact that tha con
slructiou of additional bridgpa acroaa
tbe Inlet would provide yat moru ready
access and would result in tba incoming of additional railway systems seek
Ing business upon tk* Nortb Shore.
Upon general principles tbey there-
fora welcome and ara predisposed to
view favorably any propositions tbat
may appear from time to time looking to increased faeilitiss for nilway
At the same time a somewhat *x-
teniivs and not altogether satisfactory experience with nilway charten
has served to convince local ratepayers
that however desirable any auch propositions may appear in a general way-
it ia quite possible that a close scrutiny may revaal provisions or omissions in tba Aet of Incorporation
sought by tbo company promoting such
a schema tbat neutralize tbe attractive
features thereof. In such a caae experience* bas led to the conclusion tbtt
rather than lead aasistanca to any
icbeme tbat involves conditiona that
would place tbe North Shore In a petition of perpetual and avar incraaaing
disadvantage it ia preferable to withhold approval until tuck lime aa
maani have been found of furthering
tbe project upon a liaiii wkick wbilo
not imposing any undue burden upou
thoaa who may promote the name will
at tha earn* time adequately protect
thl interest! of the people ai luch iu
relation to tbe icbeme in hand.
Just tuch a eituation ai that above
outlined baa developed with reference
to tbe propoied construction of a
bridge acroaa tba Nortb Arm of Burrard Inlet together with ten mllea of
railroad connecting that bridge witb
the 'city of North Vancouver.
Tho objections which have developed
lo the detaila of the proposition aa sot
out io tbe draft act of incorporation
of thii company ars all lound and reaa-
onable and ara prompted only by the
desire to look after tba interests of tk*
public in a business like mannir.
Those objection* bave been fully and
frankly itated in tbe presence of the
representative! of tho company in
charge of the project witb the result
that the explanationa mado in roply
bave eerved to demonetrate tbe sound
neu of tbe objections from tba standpoint of public interest!.
Tbe objection! to tbe detail* ia oca-
necti.in witb tba proposed bridge are
three, namely: tbat tin- time limit
three yean for beginning and
leveu yeara for completing conitrut-
tlon—ia much longer than il necessary
and ia uot advisable from tbe public
standpoint; tbat a single track bridge
sucb as wa* abowu in tba plans submitted would not be adequate for the
accommodation wkick would be required by tbs public in a bridge in tb*
location proposed; thst tbs imposition
of a system of tolls in connection witb
tk* propoied bridge a* intended by tb*
company would not ba advisable from
tke public viewppiat.
The objection with reference to the
propoied line of railway ii uuaniwer
■ble, namely tkat inasmuch a* two companies already bave charters for a railway right-of-way along the propoaed
route, namely tha V jfcirY. Bailway
Company and tba Burrard Inlet Tun
ul and Bridge Company, it
would b* inimical to tbe iUreele of property ownon and of tke people aa
sack were any powers of a similar nature graaUd to any additional company or companies.
While thus* objections an formidable
tkey ar* by no means insuperable, A
fraucbia* conveying th* power and tb*
privilege of conatructiog and owning
a bridge acroa* North Arm ai tb*
ppint named, is aaelly at sufficient value to tbe right partiee to justify the
construction et a combined railway
and fraSJc bridg* at adequate proportions aad tttt tram toils to tbe general public; and further when tbe opportune time for construction baa arrived, aay on* year Itt beginning
aad three years ter completing coaetruc-
tlep would be ample.
Witk ragerd to tb* propoaed railroad
tbere te no geed ground las tin exlit-
mm at ihna different rights-of-way
along tb* waterfront tm Nortk Arm

lie intorosls tkat aay additional torn
piny desiring railroad facilities ia tkat

iea now in possession of charter rights
Tba action of Ihe city cum. il, thr
district council, tbe Board of TraJ*
and the Hatepayen' Asorialioa ia r«
fusing to endorse tbe srkewe of Ik*
North Arm Bridge aad Bailway t'as*
pany aa submitted and Ike tonfnastioa
of tkat action by a maw mtetiag of
ratepayers accurately express** public
opinion upon this question.
In view, therefore, of Ik* ua.louLi
ed advantages which tke completion af
this scheme would confer under prsptr
safeguards, it is to ba hope.) tkat the
Company may see it* way tomtit ae
ceptance of those provisions which an
necessary in the public interests.
It is now definitely decided lhal
Nortb Vancouver ii tu kavc tk* konui
of being the Ant community ia Bin isl
Columbia in which will be organized a
militia Company of Field Kagiatcn.
The negotiations, which hav* besa ia
progress for upwards of two yean.
but wbicb until recently had not reach
ed the Anal stages, bsve now btm ear
ried to a successful issue ami local ad
vices are to band lo tke effect tkat
Ihe department ii prepared to procetd
with tbe organization of tk* teaspaay
to fully equip tbe same aad to boiki
a drill ball for tbeir occupation wilh
the single proviso tbat tk* cily will
provide a site for tke drill ball.
The organization of suck a company
will not only add to Ike nilitka al
the province, a unit which is eusp
lionally appropriata aad which because
of tbe peculiarities of the province re
lative to possible military operation,
will prove of exceptional uttalatn,
but it will likewise provide a most >lr
sirable rallying centre for Ik* ywag
men of tbis community, while sfsrdiag
them healthful and invigorating drill
and it will also provide opportunity
for the inculcation and Ihe exrrcu* al
principle! of patriotism.
. Tbe faet that Mr. James P. Fell kas
I'l'.i.si-nie.l lo take command sf Ih*
comjiany will ensure thorougkan* aa,l
efficiency in every department mf Ihe
Aa intimated above, ia order t* n
sure the location of this valuable instj
tution at Nortb Vaacouver, il i* rt
quired only tkat the cily provid* Ike
use of sufficient ground for drill hall
purposes. It is undentosd Item In
taw* that it is not ths custom of lk<
department to procure ground for this
purpose, but that the drill kail i* invar
iably coustrurtcd upoa properly al
ready owned by Ihe government or
given by the municipality for tk* par
poae. It is not necessary, kowevei,
that tbe title for tbe property so mil
Ized should be vested ia Ike Dominion
Government, but il is intimated Ikat a
satisfactory arrangement ran b* made
by way of a lease.
A drsjl ball suck as Ike federal gov
eminent may be expected la (reel
would prove one of Ike most nolnble
edifices of tke city aad would be a
most desirable acquisition for many
reasons. Further Ih* cost of Ih* drill
ball and Ihe equipment of the tea
pany would represent Ihe iavntment
of a large amount of' gstesrataJ
Tb* city is io possession of * number
of open spaces reserved for parks aad

well a* tka undoubted advaalag**

would ba very appropriate that a sail

piiT'./l.i fp' me Tlio question of our
south ferry approach had long uml
often beon Ibe ul lent inn of tbo Board
of Trado, apd after tho fatal accident
laat spring it waa taken up witb
greater vigor Btill A number of suggestions woro discussed, uud wo joiuod
with tlio ferry board and council iu
interviewing Mr- Peters aud Mr. Bus-
teed regarding their great subway
aebemo We all agreed that whatever
moritB tbat scheme bad, it was not
suitable for a pasBungor entry and it
waB not an undertaking wo should pay
for A temporary overhead hridgo was
also discussed and Mr Peters iudicuted
that subject to cortain considerations
tboy plight agree to this Home time
elapsed without anything further being done till 1 ascertaiped tbo price
of Mr i■'null's property, whjsn 1 suggested tbo acquiring of it and of tho
construction of a passenger subway.
Sunn after this wo were assured that
the mayor bad a spleudid proposal
from tho Grand Trunk Pacific tympany, whereby wo could get a first
rate crossing without any expouse to
this city, but uo detaila were put before us, or eveu hcfOro the city council. Some time before tho Railway
i '.....ini:.- m.i. came to Vancouver, membera of tbo city council askod that
thoy have a Bpccial meeting to discuss
tho proposals to go before tbo Bail-
way t'emtuissioiicrs. No such meeting
was ever convened, but I bol|eve the
council wore astuiro.l that everything
was in reudincds. A day or two before
the comuiiflsiou mot 1 wus dolegatod
by the Board of Trade to attend aud
support the mayor in tho application
wo understood he wus to make, and I
was present sharp on time. You can
imagine my surpriso to find that the
only thing the commission bad on tbeir
docquet was the resolution of tbe
Batcpayers' Association, endorsed by
council, and forwarded after the Pol
Ins l. accideut. The mayor had uo proposal ready, and tho oply proposal
the O. T. P. Company had was not on
the docquet, but it was made, by leave
for an overhead crossing to connect
their office building with their wharf.
Through the courtesy of the U. T. P.
engineer I got a blue print to show
lo the mayor, ami learned that the ma-
ypr appeared satisfied witb it. Hut
the complete proposal tbey had music
the ywcro not in a position to submit
it, or to enter upon any arrangement,
as they bad not tbo assent of tbe
Vancouver Couucil.   I pointed out ser-

I asked |f lm wuuld I'liiineiii |o a subway for passengers euch as wo have

suid "Certainly, if Mr. Busteed saw no
diiiii'iiliy in the way, ami thero was

asked the mayor to get un adjournment of our ease to admit of a definite
proposal being submitted, aud tbe
chairman grunted it, but only till next
iniiming. The mayor and I game
homo to North Vancouvor, ami met
Aldermen Smith and Homlersoe at tbo
city hall, and later, wo all with the
city engineer, went over ami viowod
the ground, and tho engineer wu directed to prepare the plan which was submitted to tlie commissioners. The
commissioners, on receiving the plan,
arranged that they would visit the
ground, and give their decision on Monday morning. Uoforo then Chairman
Mabcc not only visited tho ground, but
came over and spent Borne titno in

September, the board gave tbo ordor
for tbo subway being built at the expense of Vuncouver, North Vancouver,

wo have nil regarded this us an urgent provision for the safety of out
people. From the time of lodging
these plans till tbia reversion to tho
G. T. P. Bchenie, wo bear nothing more

is discussed in the council, the mayor
declares it has the approval of the

vcrod bit ninidoii speech iii tho Hiram
nf fliiiiiiiioiis at Ottawa, llaviug caught
tlm eyp of the speaker, lie plunged
br|ik|y into discussion of sundry qiaf-
tori of intense interest to Britlab Opl-
umbla. It is stated that he made a
"distinctly good Impression," and
tbat ho' was applauded frequently and
tbat be was "honored" by intorup
tions tm m tom*f mtoMon of
tbe crown, Messrs. Lemioui and Pugs-
Ur. fcftovona, in the course of bis
speech dealt wltb tho immigration problem in British Columbia.
Tw.i gentlemen of Chinese extraction
bad called upon him and had offered
■ittti) tar tho position of interpreter,
explaining that this position was of
great value. Tho offer, Mr. Stevens declared, illustrate! how sucb jobs bad
beon obtained prior to September 31.
After dealing in * caustic manner
with Chinese immigration frauds, as
revealed under tbe lato government,
Mr. Steven* declared that Hie Asiatic
prqblem would cre*|e a situation bp-
»M» JtWfV ,00 MHO problem nt the

iffjcr to fmrnt IVnM iwktA tnt tlie
gpvpfnniont fp pass an act vbleb wqpld
help to keep British Columbia a white

pf the Natal Act.
• Mr. Stevens gave bis warm approval
to the proposals in tbe Speech from
th* Tbrona for tba encouragemont of
agriculture and tbe government control
of'terminal elevators. Jho opposition, however, appeared fp treat these
things as If they wore of no importance.
afr. I'ngsley took exception to tbis
statement, but Mr. Stevens emphatically maintained thnt it was sound.
He pointed quf Unit while sixty-five
por cent, of tbp people of Canada lived off agriculture lost (bin five per
cent, of tbe total rovenue Is (leveled
to ill encouragement, On fbe other
band aucb countries as France and Italy
spend millions on agriculture, and tbo
Unitod States ten millions yearly, while
Canada last year spent a paltry seven
or eight hundred thousand. Wbat
the government proposes is that aa-
Bistanco bo given to agricultural col-
legcs and iudustial farms so that immigrants arriving in the country can
bo instructed in agriculture. Tho policy pf tbo late government wu to bring

Tbp proposal fp create a tariff commission Mr. Stevens described as an
eminently intelligent attempt at a so:
ii.i.'in pf conditions wb|cb ebtfrin in
Canada today. When Messrs. Fielding
and Peterson wont to Washington to
negotlato a reciprocity treaty, tbey
wore met by a tariff commission qf exports, who, he was reliably informed,
bad spent $300,000 fp spcure Information bearing nu these proposals. Busy
cabinet ministers could not bo expected to bo tariff experts, and it was impossible for tbem, equipped at tbey
were, t» mako a good bargain for Canada. Ho declared that tbe tariff com-
minim, must be a scientific and non-
political organization.
Mr. Steveni tben turned to tbe Brit-
lib Columbia fisheries question, pointing out that fbp fisheries qf Unit proviso wore almost entirely iu fbe bands
of tbp Japancso. Tbia was a matter
pf great significance. It was more
than a local problem. These Japs were
not mere llsliennon. Tbey wore all
trained navigators apd be ventured te
State tbut tbey had drafted plans of
tbe whole cpaat of British Columbia
and tbat these maps aro new in tbp
archives of Japan.
Mf- Stevens condemned tbo policy of
granting fishing licenses in British
Columbia. He said tbMO were sold
tp political partisan* for IHO or there
abouts aud were farmed out tq tbe Jap
auese for from $1,000 fq $1,500. Hp
suggested that it would be a wise
idea to act upon tbe proposal pf Dr.
Orenfell ami transfer seme Pf tbe Labrador lishormen to tbe British Columbia coast.
Mr. Lemieux asked if tbe Japaucse

years.      \
Mr. Stevens replied tbat thoy had,

Wo built tbit sign, tbe flrat of its
kind made entirely in North Vancouver and before neon 'lie following

this made clear, as wo havo been asked

opinion is that whilst mu.li other
damage was done, none other was
mentioned and tbat aa yeu did not no

First Street Bast,  North Vancouvtr
Editor  Express:
I am greatly surprised, and 1 am
sura must nt our ratopayera share tbp
feeling, at seeing the big scheme of
block ppving and concrete sidewalks
tint was put forward by Aid. Kittson
Pt list meeting of the eity council,
A more untimely course cnuld nut wall
have been suggested for many reasons,
Among others, permit me to state the
I. Our financing credit is limited
That fact su long questioned, has been
put beyniiil doubt by the fiscal agaut.
Till we have railway cominunicationa
iImt credit cannot rapidly advance, snd
we have already used up In largo mess
ure our present credit.
II. The wholo eity has a proportionate right to benefit from that credit
whether we borrow on geneial loan er
on local improvement loan, and the
improvement echemes should be distrib
uted accordingly.
Tl. Alroady the streets referred to
by Aid. Kittson have hud heavy out
lays upon them—more a great deal
than their equitable proportion, True,
further expense is necessary, on account of the wretched conditiou in
which liny are loft, but for tho present
Ihe least expensive form of finishing
these streets should be adopted. This
nn,in,ilsie,liv is a measure of macadam
isiug that would last for aay four or
live years—and allow the sidewalks
to remain as tbey are.
4, Our resen e pf credit should, in
my humble opinion, be used—if used at
all—In doing Ibe necessary sewage,
street opening, and grading work, and
iu acquiring, while price* are low, such
lands as seem necessary, for nil kinds
of civic purposes. By this means we
get the best return for tho use of our
credit, and we solidify our credit.
a. We aro looking towards ami
have been working for a larger cily,
but it is absurd to say to our friends
outside "We are going te annex you"
Kxtensioii of boun.laries can only take
place witb mutual good will and confl
de    The outside frionda are watch
ing with a vory interested eye, our
management of civic affairs. If equity
and amity prevail here, we will have
these friends eager lo join us, but they
will never dream of coming in if their

things pleasant and profitable for one

North Arm Bridge
and Railway Scheme
(Continued From Page One.)
I Mr. A. K. Kealy then delivered a
lengthy speech. "Por fourteen solid years," said the eity magistrate,
"we have been tied up by private railway corporations." After years of
struggle, after going to tbo Dominion
government lime after timo, tbey had al
laat prevailed upon the provincial government to minium a bridge across
Hurrard Inlet for the benefit of all the
cities and municipalities connected
with the North Bhorc. Mr. Kealy
proceeded to outline tbe cbarter grant
ed for tbo above project.
"And now," he said, "here is a
proposition to build within three years
a bridge across Ihe Neith Arm, also
ten miles of railway into North Van
couver, thereby paralleling the line al
ready granted by the Dominion gov
eminent. Aod wbat do these gentlemen
aay that come to us tonight f They
aak ue to send lo the government our
confirmation ef Ibe fact tbat tbey
want three years wherein to eeininoiire
and seven years wboreln to complete.
Thair excuse is tbat eur municipal-
owned proposition aaks tbat." air.
Kealy then Uid stress upon the fact
tbat Mr. Ungley and Ihe tbrce gentle
men tbere that evening bad bad a
eonfereuce witb tbe mayor and the
president of Ibe Board of Trade (tbe
reeve had been unable to be present)
but tbey would not inform them who
is at tbe back of tbe enterprise. "Ie
it in our province," demanded the
speaker, "to back something tbat is
held back from these gentlemen!"
Tbey were to be asked to pay a toll
before crossing the proposed bridge.
They were aaked to pay ' something
which the provincial government bad
acknowledged In Ihe case of the Weat-
pinaster bridge to be unjustifiable. Aad
after all wbat doe* tbs wbela bridge
eonaiat oft"
A voice: "Paper."
When Ihe laughter bad subsided
Hr. Kealy indicated that tbe promoters
pf tbe scheme were so absolutely indifferent to Ibe nature of the act tbat
tbey were ready to knock of year*
trlib respect to tbe commencement and
completion of tbe work. Witb all due
epurteey to tbaso gentlemen, Mr.
Kealy contended tbat it waa quite evident tbat tbey bad not gone fully Into Ihe matter. In reference to the
banding over of tbe cbarter to the

Voices! "No."
Mr. /■ (I. Phillipo: "Have any ar
rangomoiits been made (or any othor
railway company to lite thit bridge!"
Mr. Langley: "No."
1  Mr. Phillipo: "Do you intend to approach any companyt If sn, which!"
Hr. Langley: "We shall approach
all of tbem."
Coun. Hridginaii: "Am I right In
supposing that three of tbe promoters
are here tonight!"
Hr. Ungley: "Vet."
Coun. Bridgman: "And that forms
Mr. Ungley: "Yea."
t'niin. llridgiiiaii: "Cannot tbst majority give the information necessary
to the mayor, the reeve and the' pre'

Hr. Ungley: "Tbere ia a majority
preseut, but as to financial arrangements, 1 would remind you tbat we are
required to satisfy the railway com
mlssioners before we can get a chart
er. Further than tbat, I decline to
say anything."
Hr. II. O. Wright, president of tbe
Hatopaycrs' Association, emphasised
forcibly Ibe injustice and absurdity of
the toil system.
Ur. J. Balfour Ker pointed eut in
the course of an excellent apoech, that
tbe eity was already a shareholder
iu tbe Hurrard Inlet Tunnel and Bridge
heme. Would it not be foolishness
to givo consent to anotber right of
way which would parallel the flrst line.
Much a monopoly of tbe waterfront
won Id be a baudicap to any port. He
considered that tbe first railroad
should bu a public one.
Mr: Ker added tbat he had been
told by a prominent ratepayer tbat
application bad been made to bim for
right of way for a railway through
bis properly. Tbia be bad refused to
concede uuletm the names, of the promoters were disclosed. He was Anally told it waa tbe C. P. B. "And,"
leclarod Mr. Ker, "it wm J. C, Keith
wbo told me."
Ur. Ungley and bis associates pro
tested emphatically that thoy bad no
conoction with the Canadian Pacific
Hailway Company.
Mr. W. C. flladwin also apoke in
opposition to tbe project,
Coun. I .unlet ilien formally moved the
resolution' quoted above, Ur. Phillipo
Hcfore tho motion wu put to tbe
meeting Ur. P. O. Wade voiced tho at
liduiie of the resideuta and ratepayers
around Hcdwell Bay and Helcart. He
also emphasized tbe monopoly of tbe
waterfront which would accrue. It
would be pure confiscation Tbey
had lieen told about tbe importance
of tbe opening of tho Panama Canal
and what a great port tbis was to be.
What thon would be tbe uae ef a tingle
line of railway! Ur. Wade disliked
Ibe way in which tbe matter had been
brought forward. To bim it waa
strange if tho C, P. II. bad net an inter-
tercet in tbis. Their survey terminated
wbere this bridge waa supposed to
eommonce and commenced again where
the bridge wa* supposed to end. If
tbey supported tbis propotition, be
