According lo un associated press despatch Mayor McNeish of this city hu

ludicrous," in the course of an inter
view which he is reported lo have
granted and further criticised lhe so
tidies iu Toronto which were freely

The despatch proceeds:
I "Why should Toronto butt iu on

"Toronto is usually interested iu things
lhat Jo nol concern it. ll should at
tend lo its owu knitting before it

So free wilb tboir  views, which arc
antagonistic  to  Ibe  welfare    of  the

why Toronto should intereil lUeW wilb

Capt. I'nii'is. who had been pruseeut
ing inquiries in Ihis connection, was
inclined to atlvise the board to huv

first place they would be interfering
with peoplo who owned wharves and
in the second place tbey would buve
to look to tho citizens tu provide fur

<Mr. W. L. Boult did not think il

on the past altitude of the civic au
iliuiiin . tiii-.iiisi the condition of

question of a fourth ferry Imu I In

gau to get busy iu this connection.
Capl. Cafes thereupon pooh poobt'd
Ibe idea of spending u large umouul of
public money on experts' commissions,

probably have lo pay itl/iUO contra ii

of a few proposed improvements, "tint

approved as 1st class by travellers from

"There is not lung hotter in Ban Fruit

"We've got the plans, we've gut the

reluctant lu spend tbat commission
Acting Mayor McKac agreed Willi
"None of us," said Mr. Wright
"will know more about a mailer of
tbis kind Iban Capl. I'alcs. Personally
1 would like lo have inquiries made as
lo whether It would be possible lu
bavo two boats built for about thu
same cost as oue ene for |iassenger
trallic and une fur teams. This is the
system which prevails in New Soulh
Wales whero ] spent a considerable
period of my life."
"But lhat arrangement," argucl
Mr. Gladwin, "would require lhe pro
vision ef an extra rrew. I don't think
wc ran better our present system, ll
is the sysiciu used in Bt. John's, Ban
Francisco, Halifax and New York, sinl
it is in in mli the most economical."
"I was looking iulu lhe future," said
Mr. Wright.
- "I nm"ider these arc Ihe best for
the future," remarked Mr. Gladwin.
Eventually a resolution waa passed In

suggestion. Manager Heard being aaked lo lay plans' and data before the

Contrary lo lhe usual practice the Assessment Notices for
1912 have been stfil to the regislered owners of properly
according to the fefind Registry records.
Up lo lhe present, purchasers have been in lhe habit of
notifying the cily authorities lhal lhe properly had changed hands
to lhat notices of assessment and taxation should not go astray.
This form of registration of owners has heretofore been deemed
sufficient for city purposes, but owing to a recent decision the
city council is advised by ils solicitors to recognise these owners
only who appear on the records of the Land RegislryOflice.
Unfortunately a great many never register their deeds or agreement!.

The decision of llic committee will
he recognised as wise from llic standpoint of the interests uf the province ..
tucb, while et llm sume lime the delay involved will nut seriously af
feet the- interests uf Hie eity
of     Vancouver. In      point     uf

divergence of opiniuu aiming llm alder
men uf that eity as to whether the
clauses of the hill as submitted to tlie
I'ommittee of tlm House, weru satis
i,ii imt. ami fur Ihis reason a further
postponement may prove beneficial tu
that eity itself.
Nuw that the aelinn uf the Private
Hills Committal has prepared tho wsy
fur public discussion of the whole question with a view tu a provincial act tu
render this form of government avail
uhic, upon a uniform liasis, tu ull
municipalities, it is in urder to observe
'that while thu Commission form of
nir I'.,. i n.iiii nl has hosts of ardent
udvocates, and while it has proven a
ilisi.idiid success ill several rcspeets,
opinion is not by any means unanimous
tvith reference tu the advisability uf

bul rather the upbuilding of a mure
conscientious and responsible elliwii
ship- u eitiri'iiship that will clearly
recognize lhat civic responsibility can

/iilinn, CoDiinluion ur other, liul that
if civic government is to bu clean ami
i'iiiiipt'lt'iit, each citizen must assume his
full share of responsibility and assist in

Along these lines, one of Ihe Influential duilies uf the eity uf Boston
recently made the fullnwing nhserva
linns, editorially!
"The movement tuward commission

The aiiove criticism frankly admits
that tbera are tiestaia beneficial results
from tbe commission form of government, but attributes those results, hot
to the change of system, but to thu
change of attitude upon the part of
the people. If this position is correct,
then there is reason lo fear that the
benefits may prove to be of only a
temporary nature inasmuch as sooner
or later the citizenship may Ispsu from
thia increased interest in civic affairs,
into thu former state of comparative
indifference from which they were for
the iiine urnui.i'd, in which cssu the
buiiuflls accruing frnm the change wuuld
There has beon, perhaps, a growing
disposition upon the part of thu mass
of the people who arc dissatisfied with
the obi form of civic government, to
take it for granted Hint thu eoiiimissio i
imo, provides a eululiou uf lhe priiblum.
The criticism quoted abuve reminds us,
however, that the whole question lb
still a live isstiti and that there is neod
thut public thinking lie actively sus
tuined iu seeking to arrive at rig I
conclusions with referenco lo this im
portent municipal problem.
For an eiamplo of practical and ef
feetivo legislation for llm regulation
ami control uf the traffic iu Intoileal
ing liquors, it wuuld be very diiln uli
to discover anything better than the
l.lquor I .im of British Columbia.
The actual results from the operation
of that law, for the year 1011 as re
ported i ci cm 11 to the House by At
tornuy General Dowser are of a truly
remarkable nature, and it ia safe tu
say, could uot be duplicated from any
source. The outstanding feature of lhe
effectiveness of this law is the fact
thai (hero were actually fewer licenses
iu force in the province during the year
lllll than were during i'.i In In order
lo .hi.|. iM.',.',s! the full significance ol
this faet it is necessary lo bear in mind
the rapid increase in the population of
Ihu province for thu year which has
been estimated from official sources at
from fill,""" to 711,000. That is, while
tbu population nf Hrilish Columbia In
creased by from twenty to twenty five
per cent., the number of liquor licenses
actually decreased.
There were ten Instances in which the
issuance ut new licenses ur the renewal
uf former licenses was refused. There
were 10.1 prosecutions and 86 cun
fictions, under tlm act during the year
and tlie fines collected amounted In
All of this goes lu show that not
only ia the Act a workable une, bul
further it Is the unmistakeable loten
tiuu uf the Attorney llsimrsl's depart
ment to sue that its provisions are duly
To the advanced temperance advocate
uf course, no form of license law is
acceptable and lhat position is entitled
to respect, but al tbe sime time there
it I'liml en,un.I tu conclude Ihut the
license law as it stands, is fully abreast
of public sentimenl in the province at
present, with reference to temperance
legislation. It cannot but be cou
sldered gratifying under these rlrcum
stances that lhe administration of the
Attorney Ilcneral gives all parlies so
clearly to understand thai the prov
isltins of lhe act, must be strictly and
continuously obeorved.
The aiiifiidiui'uls lo Iho Liquor
Licence Act Introduced in the house
last week made clear lhe further fad
thut legislation In tbis respect is uot
at a standstill. The-proposed amend
omuls are of a nature that will en
gender wholesome reaped for the plain
provisions of tbe act upon the |iart of
any who might be inclined to endeavor
to evade the same.
The statements of Premier Mcllride
in replying to tbe deputation which
waited on him on Tuesday, from lhe
Local Option League show that' lhe
governoient recognises tbe presence of
an advanced temperance sentiment of
growing Strength throughout tbe pro
vial! and that it ly tbe policy of the
administration to accord that senli
ment, every 'reasonable and juat re
cognition. Tbe fact cited by tb*
premier tbat no licence bo* been
granted along tbi line of construction
of tbe Canadian Northern, tbe Orand
Trunk Pacific or the Kettle Valley railways is of Itself a circumstance of so
exceptional s nature ss to demonstrate
beyond sll cavil tbe accuracy of lhe
Premier's assurance "We are trying

Mr as the Capilano, tbo object being
din.illusion on the iiiiprovi'ini'iii of the
Capilano road for (purist traffic. Tbo
suggestion of tho district council is
tbat tbe whole road should be improved, in two suctions, one from the Narrows to tho Canyon View Hotel, cost
♦17,876, and tbe otber from the lul
named hotel to the Capilano Hotel,
cost $10,501), total »87,87B.
Reeve May, after luncheon, outlined
tho advantages- that would accrue to
the proposed improvements and hoped
that the matter would be dealt with
iu a friendly and businsssliko inaniierl
Coun. Bridgman thought thst if sume
arrangement cuuld be made with the
city the district would be willing to
grant a right of way for hbo pipo line
of the city. It was impossible for the
district to spend tho amount ou tbe
roatl at the present time, but if the city
w.as willing to bear 60 per cent .of the
coat the work could be commeiiced ot
once. The cost of maintenance would
bo borne by the district. H roust bo
borne in mind lhat the construction of
tho road from White Cliff to Deep Cove
would involve the district in a cost uf
(400,000, anil that thoy were not asking
tho city to build tbeir trunk roads, but
only to share the expense of this one.
Coun. Lawson contended that Ihe
eity had, and always would have, a
great deal more use of tbe road than
did the district. Coun. Loutet and
Couu. Westover thought that tho benefits would bu reciprocal between the
city and the district.
District Engineer Bosgrove, having
fdrnished details of Iho proposed work,
Aid. Hepburn said that inasmuch as the
eity must preserve the Capilano water
source, bo was prospered to carefully
consider the matter. The widening of
the road would be advantageous both,
to tho city and the district. The view
of Aid. McHpadden was lhat the pro
posai was neither too extensive uor ex-
peusivo to he considered favorably by
the Vancouver couucil and he should
certainly support tho proposal.
Aid. White said that it was the con
census uf opinion over Ihe city that
tbey un ni I'd the road widened ,aud he
was heartily in support of Ibe projoct.
Aid. Trimble said be would do all
he could to aid iu the success of the
scheme, and Aid. Williamson thought t
grant would best muot lhe,caae, with
the understanding that the work was
carried out bp joint engineers.
Mr- W. i. Lea, assistant city engiu
eor, pointed out thai tbe city should
have sufficient control of the road to
tiuria.itie that mi injury would take
piece to the pipes, and also that the
•ity should have the right of way to
:uty the pipes ti the north side of
he Narrows.
