Post Office Department
Thinks Arbitrators'Award
City Hall Site Excessive
GOVERNMENT      WILL      SUBMIT
OFFBE
Ottawa, April Nth, nil:;. H is un
lontood bere that tbo department has
'Onsidered tbo valuation placed by Ihe
arbitrators upou tho cily hail site,
which tbo government wishes to purchase for post office purposes ut North
Vancouver, but that the award is considered too high. The arbitrators valued tho property at 193,060 aud the
buildings at 116,11011, making a total
valuation of 1108,0511. The department
is  of  opinion   thut   the  government
would not bo justified in paying moro
I lum the prico placed mi ine property,
namely 11)11,11611. Au a matter of fact
the department 'would bo hotter pleas-
i cd were there no building wbatover,
upou Ibo lots. The preseut building
would huve lo be lorn dowu or removed sooner or luter and in point of fact
it is questionable whether the department would utilize it ut all, for post
ollice' purposes, for which reason it
would prove un Impediment rather than
an ussel, It is probable Ihut the department will communicate with the
cily council lo the ubove effect.

gll 860 voles polled in January uml
tbero were upwards of six hundred
polled un Saturday, a showing Ihul
will lio ie. iiiun.i il us very gratifying
Tho total of 201 votes polled fur Iht
candidates for reove of the newly
created diatrict constitutes n most cred
itable muster as the initial attempt
of the municaptlity. This vole, how
ever, would have been very much larger were satisfactory transportation
facilities provided belween West Vun
i ouver ami tho other portions of the
North Hhore,
The return of tho four former coun
s lilm. iii North Vancouver district liy
larger total voles and by more pro
0,mui.,I majorities than were given
Ihem iu January shows nol only Ihut
Iho rulepayera are satisfied with lhe
records of these councillors but may
ulso be inlsi'ii as an intimation from
the 'ratepayers that tiiey considered
ilie bringing on nf a contest iinneces
sury under the cireuinsluuccs. The re
turn of the former councillors likewise
deuotes u desire upon the part of the
ratepayers to adhere lo Iho wurd sys
I em of representation, which while [o
gaily abolished, fur lhe time by lhe
re orgaiiisUiliou, was in fact, retained
in fori e by ihu voluntary action of
lhe electors. This is an ad of mag
iiaiiimity upon the part uf those sec
lions in which the resident vole is com
I .unl ivi Iv heavy, which will doubt loss
I.e duly appreciated by the ratepayers
ul other sections and will do much In
prumole a most cordial spirit Ihrnugh
mil all Ihe Internal relationships of ihe
diatrict.
Willi Iho eseeption of Ihe newly
eleeted reeve Mr. Churles Nelson, lhe
councillors elected In West Vaneouver
are all new to municipal Ipinoni on
lhe Norlli Shore. Mr Nelson wus
elected lo lhe combined council in
January us one of lhe representatives
lur Ward I and bus now attained lhe
honor of being the lirsl reeve of the
disl rid of Wesl Vancouver. The couu
nllori associated with him are men of
the highest si.iissiii,j- in business
clrclll and havo long been identified
with Wost Capilano interests Their
uiliuinistrotion of the affairs of the
ne» district will be energetic and pro
gresslve.
Now that the elections arc disposed
nf tho way is cleared for proceeding
mill important mailers in etch dii
trict which have .unavoidably been
held In abeyance pending the coroplc
lion ol lhe re organisation.
Upon the occasion of bis visit to
North VuiH'iiuvnr ut tho uponing of tho
slncl bridge across Seymour rivor, Pre
niior Mcilrido nxpressod in strong terms
his ciiiiimenilalion nf thu character of
the slrucliire, slating that being built
entirely of steel and concrete, it was
a permanent slrucluro in the strictest
sense of the term and added that tbu
government was strongly iu favor of
the building of structures of this
character wherever bridges were required ou the public highways throughout Hie province. lie hoped thul the
day wus not fur distant when the guv-
eminent ami Hie respective municipal
ilies would be ill u position to follow
lhe excellent example sel by the district of North Vancouver in this regard,
The musl recent tribute to lhe im
wardnesa uf thu Norlh Shore in procuring lhe best lhal is attainable in mu
nicipiil mailers, was lhat which was
so licully paid by lion. Dr. Young, Mill
ister nt Education, in his address yes
terday at lhe opening of lhe new
Riilgway schiiol iu Ihis cily. Dr. Young
slated Ihut he hud spout upwards of
uu hour in going over the building in
company with menibors of the school
board and declared that anyone who
was lonis i .ii.i Willi the science of
modern school construction, must at.
onco bo impressed wilh thu fact that
the now school building incorporated
ull llic best features whieh the up to
inlu authorities could suggest. Pro
.ceiling, Ihe Minister of Education
highly complimented the Hoard of
School Trustees upon Ihu ability and
Ihu enterprise whioh they had main
fesled in the construction of a build
ing of such n character and ho further
dated thai so strongly was Ins
iupartmcnl impressed with Ihe
idvautages of modern ideas

al no ii mm date, to lie able lo in

ings erected for educational purposes
uml likewise lo require their incorpo
ration ip ell similar buildings eryet

North Vancouver property holders
and rosldcnta Vuuiiol but appreciate Ihe
benefits which mist accrue from Ihe
fad lhal n reputation such ai is lm
plied in the foregoing, should be es
lahlisbcd fur lhe Norlli Shore, nol only
iu influential government circles, but

is every reason lo conclude lhat tho

a happy augury for the prosperity of
North Vancouver that not only had we
this excellent building among tbo
other schools of tbe city, but wo likewise bail the chiblron to occupy It, for
educational purposes. Tbis yias another token of tho manner in which
thc city was flourishing. The mayor
then proceeded to dwell briefly but
forcefully upon the uccessity that the
patents ami ratepayers aliuuld at all
limes encourage the most enterprising

the educutional affairs of tho cily in

upun the iliiiiiiili'iii.liss: of the liuild
ing. It consisted of an edillco of eight
rooms. When ita construction was do
cided upou it was anticipated thai
four rooms would lie rcipiired when ll|o
building wus completed, but iu poiut
of fact that building would be in use
tomorrow with six rooms occupied, und
it wus expected Hint by lhe opening
of the autumn session evory mum
would lie required. At Nnrlh I,ons
■ isle tho cily had a building of eight
rooms, four of which were in n finish
oil condition. When llu si'huol was

but recently u fourth Inni boon mils
inlo requisition uud it wus the inlcn
lion lo have Uie upper storey liuisiied
during Hie summer bnliduys, as still
more rooms would lie needed with tbe

that yet other school buililingi ul' aim

School authorities iii other cities could
uul understand huw North Vaacouver
bud secured a building of such au or
der ut such an extremely low price.
It was due lu the wiirlininnship nf the

ninn in tbo Uuuiclpal Hall on Tburs
4ay nigbt ,i im district council discuesod
tbe unwillingness pf tha city fathers
Of Vancouvar to contribute towards
tbe i'ii|iili,ini road improvements. Tlie
Buanl of Works had registered a rnfns
|| to give the desired 12,1100 towards
tbe widening and Improving of Ibo
road aud this evoked from Councillor
Bridgman a rocominondutiun that llu-
niiiilei bo now taken up with Dr.
Buwo and the Vancouvor Progress
Club. Coun. Ilrlilgnian considered Hint
tbe club, which largely advertises the
beauties ami allructiuus of Greater
Vi.iu oo'.i i. might ho ii.ili. lenili inter
I'l'ieil in the improvements of the Cap
ilu no nm.I to devote sonic fraction of
its liino towards the work.
The iii,].. ium was raised lhat if llic
Progress Club wero asked lo do this
the Vancouver Bqord of Works might
ri't'n .e to donate anything at ull.
Beevo Muy alluded lo the remark of
I Vancouver uldcrinan describing lin'
expenditure ul money on Capilauo mui
Ipjprovemonta us "waste." The reeve
held a decidedly opposite opinion. If
tbey could secure contributions of
small amounts each yeur grcut improve
incuts would bo quickly noticeable in
the mad.
Couu. Bridgmaii ulsu introduced Uie
following motion: "'Hint as Ihe uwncr
of Die prupcrly necessary for intake

and bii agent understands thai the

Hint to auler into negotiations lor its

iug undue delay, be it resolved Ilinl

laml."
Thin inul inn was duly seconded and
carried.
Another resolution which was passed
unanimously without discussion, again
at the instance of t'oun. Bridgman, was
worded lu lhe following effect: "That
this council slrungly endorses lhe action of the Hoard, of' I'rade in tbeir
petition to the provincial government
