The Board of Ferry Pirocten met
yesterday aflernoon, Mayor McNeisb
Letter,', were read from the local
Board of Trade and from the Rate
payer!' Association, tbo former disap
proving of the Tin foot right of way pro
position, snd the Istter pointing out
tbst tbeir delegation bad "emphatically "declined to commit themselves" iu
the discussion of tbe pverbead bridge
Certain of the delegates were again
present, augmented by Aid. Smith,
president of the Board of Trade.
Aid. Smith said be bad gone care
fully into Ibe whole matter, particularly witk regard tp tke Tin fool right-
of-way, and be considered sucb a pro
position would prov.' detrimental to
ferry puiaafen, since tbo granting
of tbat right-of-way wpuld mean lhal
an immense amount of freight trallic
would come off tbe Uren.l Trunk wbarf
and congest tbeir own trallic. De wu
of-the opinion thst tbe subwsy, passed
by the railway commissioners, would
be quite sufficient to take rue of ill
the passenger traffic.
Msyor McNeiih, in replying, said
that 'I" directorate wished to bave
the co operation pf the citiiens in this
matter. De thought tbore were several features wbicb required clearing
up. For instance, he bad read in tbe
newspapers lhat Mr. Philip hsd msde
s statement to Ihe effect thst he be
llevcd "then must be something behind it sll." Ilf (tke mayor) u
sured those preient tbat the director
sis were u desirous si say other re
prssealalivc body ef serving the host
interests of the citizens of North
Vancouver. When s member of s body
msde sucb s remark U tbe ono be bid
quole.l, he comldsnd tbst the rest
of tke body should lake immediate
itepe to pat a pep '" thai sort of
thing tke newlpspen get hold of it,
witk tbe result tkat a lot ef nonsense
li published.      V
Aid. Smith's cemment wu tkat
"Ini people complained of not getting tbi news; Ikon tbey compleiucd
of getting it."
Mr. W. 1. Irwin at once proceeded
tp explain Mr. Philip. He believed
tbst the remark bsd only reference
to tin negotiation* of tke Ursu.l Trnuk
witk tki besrd, snd did not in sny
raft? tp tke ferry directorate. Tke
b*J|af wu tkat in making over lhat
Wfool right-of-way tn tbe ti. T. P.
tbey  wero  not  getting a    sufficient
"quid pro quo."
Mr. I j. Walts lioi.ev endorsed this
The mayor also made reference to
Aid. Smith's remarks duriug a session
of lbc council, one being "Ibat he
kept in touch with public matters."
Such insinuations almost mado Dis
Worship wonder whether be were ac
i nully mixed up witb something that
be was not aware off
Aid. Smith said emphatically Ihul
it was bis opinion yet that tbe C.P.R.
and tbe Q.T.P. would squeeze them oul
of the landing. Do inquired us lo
what was being done about the sub
way, for which all preliminary arrange
incuts bad been made.
A dialogue Ibon ensued belween fbe
msyor Slid Aid. Smith, duriug which
it transpired tbat the Railway Commissioners had given permission for the
construction of the subway to< the
city ef Nortb Vancouver, so Ibst Ibe
ferry .directum really bad nothing lo
do wilh it.
Aid. Smith: "Then it is up to tbe
city couucil lo take Ihe mailer up.
Dou't you think something ought to
bsve been douo towsr.ls further
He   reminded   the   mayor   thul   Dis
Worahip wu a member of both bodies.
"Why    should  it  not  be    pushed
abcadf" be penisted.   "It's Ibe solution to the whole question."
Mr. II. C. Wright pointed out that
wbal tbey bad applied for was torsi
porary relief. Th,at wu quite with
in Iho jurisdiction of lbc ferry com-
mision. Mr. Wright also emphuized
Ihe point that they had not initially
approached the direclon to expreu
auy opinions or agree to anything
Tbe msyor could notirid bih mind of
that suggest ion that "there wu
sometbing behind it all." He de
scribed it u the "nasties! slur*lhal
could bo imagined."
Mr. Jease Williams msde sn explanatory speech during which it wu
pointed out thst tbe ,'tO-foo! couceiien
might terminate en six monthi' notice
from either parties. It uemed lhal
there, wu a luppeiition abroad tbst

Mr. Wrigkt ultimately suggested
tkat a public meoling be beld io tbtt
the thing might be thoroughly threshed
It wu agreed tbst tbe suggestion
wu a good ono. Arrangements for a
public meeting are therefore befog
nude and it li esrnestly hoped it will
mark tke close of tbe period of cross
purposes wbicb bu prevailed io eon
section witb ferry matters of late.

Montreal—A" hew function has just

points evory evening at Ihe rush limn
is iiiie.|ii:ill.-il and has aroused the air
gor and disgust of those who havo had
occasion to witness it. In tbo rush

and women have been trampled upon
and frequently serious injuries have
occurred. The waiting crowd hM
swarmed ovor tht can before thoy
came to a stop and in tho mad con
test women naturally had little chance
to secure seats. Inspector l.oggatt,
wbo bai charge of the tnouute.l police
and who is the virtual head of tho traf
Ac squad, determined to change this
sta|e of affairs. For tbe psst fen

the crowded corners where tracks in

Montreal's public is "dead sick" of
her inadeipiato street ear servicu and
hopes and prayers arc going up on all
bauds that Ihe proposed gigantic merger of all thu lines «u Ihe Island of
Montreal will help a little. This is
nol likely howovur, and, when thu new
corporation has finished paying up in
tereit charges, bond indebtedness ami

As Ibe largest consumer of i ■•■..I.-i u 11 -.
in Ibe country, Ihis cily is ueniiincly
i oiiceiii.il over Hie prospect of another
season of high prices for ull kinds uf
moat products. At first there was a
disposition to decry the necessity of
any decided advance in ruluil prices
and to attribute the threat of higher
rates to the operaliou of the beef Imst.
As tho reports of a genuine scarcity
of high grsde csllle ami other meal
animals have eontiuued to come iu
from all parts of the country, however
and have been reAcclcd in the actual
advance of wholesale prices, tho public
has become convinced tbat it muit

giving military orders, said, "Let us

the formula on the board. Thus on
the sensitive piste of memory, in Kve
hundred young minds, Ibe purls lhal
gn lu make a perfect prayer were im

It may bu that, in tho delay and tbe

required, that stale of mind and heart
is developed which will make the best
use of the blessing when ot lenylh il

tor iu human affairs. Things runic fo
pass through prayer that ollierwise
never wuuld transpire. If Nehemiah
had .inly wept, his tears would have
availed nothing. He prayed, and hia
name stands nest to that uf Zeruhh-
abel as having supplemented and cun
served his work, for the temple, without the wall, could nol have stood until Iho Hhiloh came, (llorious achievements are the outcome of deep feeling.
Nehemiah's emotions fairly chiseled
hjs face. If bis-bad boen a mere pass
iug and seutinicntai regrot at tho forlorn condition of Jerusalem, he would
nevet have beon thu honored instrument of I'miiilrim,' iu the rearing of

point a committee to act fpr tka r*sl'
donts and ratepayers for wards one and
two »f Wast Vancouver, »nd inset tbe
committee of tbs two councils to ad'
juat mattors relating to the division
of tbs municipality.
Thereupon, wltb P briskness wbicb it
ii hoped will characterize tbe meet
ingi of th* council wbsn formal), tbe
following wsra duly nominated to form
tbii adjustment committee: Messrs.
Charlei Nelion, /. 9. Matberi) 8. dint-
zliurger, /, Aleiander, /. ], Hanna, W.
i. Irwin and A.K. I.i.l.llo.
Mr. Olntiburger endorsed tbs view
whereupon Mr. W. W. Loheaui moved
that the adjustment committee aa ap
pointed be authorised by tbe aseein
bled ratepayers to aet for tbem in ell
matters that may arise between tbe
adjustment committee and tbe commit
teei appointed by tha two councils,
and that this committee shall report
to future meetings of tba ratepayers
for their endorsement before any matter  proceeds  to   legislature.
Tbis motion wai formally secon.le.l
and carried.
Mr. Mather* inquired ae to tbe period of tims which would elapse before
the division could take placo. Could
it lie dona before tbe election!.
The chairman replied tbat tbii wu
uot poiiible. Tbey would have to go
before tbe provincial bouie as Victor
ia, and other formalities would have lo
ba attended to, io tbat ba did not
think tbey would get Into definite
shape until tbe beginning of April.
On tbe whole, be believed tbera would
not be much difficulty in tbe way as
they were not going to aak for anything that tba rait of tbe municipality
would be unwilling to give.
The question wa* ratted ai to wbat
percentage of property owner* tbey
had lucceided in getting on to thair
Mr, Nelion'i reply wu 70 per cent,
Some of the larger property owuen,
while net completely lupportiug tbem,
did not actually oppose tha Idea.
Further, Mr. Nelion aaid the liabilities of the municipality were ,300.000
but be did not think tbey would be
in any way liable for more tban a third
of that ium. In answer to a queatioo
raised by Mr. Aleiander, the chair
nmi. observed tbat Ihey had now as
much alienable property in tbe west

It was then formally resolved that
