The Vuncouver Shipmasters' Associa
tiou have hail under consideration a
plan uf the latest type of bridge pru
posed for Second Narrows, the plan
having been conveyed tu them through
lhe ii., ,iii,iii of lhe government offices ut
New Westminster. We publish elsewhere an account uf the iliicussiun as
it was rcpurted in a Vancuuvor daily.

proposed centre pier with commendable
iiriiinptituilc. They declared thut Ihey

ihul Ihey were against that centre pier

bridge at HimniidJiarriiHii._TJiii bridgo,
however, is giving every satisfaction,
both to water and laud Millie; nn accidents aru im uiiliul ami nu undue delays are experienced. The situation at
rjecuiui Narrows is no more difficult
than that ou the Fraser, while lhe proposed span of 21111 feet is a greal dual
wider than the spans of the Fraser
lliver bridge. |t muy further bu cited
that condition! at Ihc First Narrows
of Hurrard Inlet with refereuce to
tides, etc., are i>iiire«limeull Ihun Ihey

ami Ihc width of slreuin regularly used
by tugs with lows docs not by any
inuuiis measure mill feel iu width.   .
Thu musl iiiiiiilde objection urged
agaiusl lhe plans liy Ihc members of
the association,'huwever, was that iu
which North Vancouver was specifically
inenlionuil. One speaker objected lo
lhe expenditure in building lhe bridge
ou lhe ground lhat it would "chieHy
benefit Nurth Vancouver," and a sec
uml speaker did not see why llic hur
bur should he spoiled wilh a bridge
"for the sake of Nortli Vamouver."

with every detail of Iheir opinions or
lo incur their very grave displeasure.

where every convenitnet wus afforded

which llic Vancouvor Shipmasters' As

The position of lhe association wilh
refereuce lo a centre pier begs lbe
i|i)e.|i.m There mu-1 be a pier of some
sort, approximately in that positiou.
The contention nf llie aasuoialiuii is
lhat Ihc pier under consideration should

kll. Whelher ii la.an ordinary pier
wilh a Died bridge span beyuud il, or
a centre pier wilh another draw span

The lueal ion of Ihc pier, therefore, and

The puailloii is taken iu well informed

of ItiD foci in width, while al the same

The objection! urged by the iMocia
lion as against t swing bridge trt iuch
ai might lie urged against praclically
all swing bridges spanning navigable
waters marked by a current. If ship
ping may be somewhat delayed when

also be loinewhat inconvenienced when

To Those Whom
it May Concern
To try (o do business without

doing but im one else does.
To let the people know what
•you are doing you must reach the
people effectively.
The Express circulates at almost every house on the North
Therefore to do business effectively on the North Shore you
must advertise in The Express.
