Hhe died abuut threo years ago iu l.us

her death was greatly mourned by a

upon'arrival at Han Francisco.
There were other fair ami joyous
maidens on hoard, aud there were
young mothers iu lhe firsl Mount' of

or in Iheir arms. There were matrons
whose grown up children had come lo
lhe whurf to see Ihem safely off, ami
bless their departure and pray for Iheir

The situation as it aa present exUts
relative lo Ihu efforts of the district
couucil of Norlh Vuiiciiiivor, to procure
from lhe Douiiuiou guvernment Ih*
riparian rights iu connection with tho
i ml iif a street which the district Iisb
permission to cunstnift thruugh Bey-
moor Indian reserve, again brings forcefully lu public iiiii'iiiiiui tbu extreme do-
s i nt Iii lit y of an uutliorilative disposal
uf the vexed question of the rights of
Ihc In.iiuiu. relative to the foreshore
fronting on Indian reserves.
If equity unly lie considered, it is
difficult to sec iu what way the Indians
lire ful it lei In the  mut accruing
|n Hn- respect frum results whieh are
ih|c solely lo the dualities brought to
bear by the while race. The Indians, it
is Irue, were Ihe urigiual inhabitants
of Ihe cuunlry and it is i|Uitu as uu-
liouiulfly Irue, ihul had the couutry
been loft ii, their hands, it wuuld still
bu in ils urigiual slate and the value
of ripuriiin lights would be, just what
they were hundreds nf years ago, ond
Iheir interests in the value of those
rights wuubl be gauged accordingly.
II is easily pussible, however, thai
llie .in.ilmi, iu law may he entirely
different front Hie above. It ia possible that were ilie matter referred lo
Ine courts Ihe courts might rule that
the conditions under wi.li Ihe Imliuns
were placed ill pusses, on uf Ihe Indian
reserves throughout the Dominion run-
vi veil to lliem uu undisputed right and
nib- nol only to the land and therefore
lo ull increment whieh the development
of lhe country might cause with re
sped thereto, but likewise to all rip
arum rights which might be shown to
pertain lo any such reserve. It might
be ruled thul those ripuriun rights were
the indisputable rights of the Indians,
whether Ibey na.l or hud nol prucured
a separate conveyance uf Ihe same as
is necessary in the case of Caucasian
waterfrout properly owners. Oil Ihe
other hand it is likewise possible lhat
Hie courts might decjde in favur of Ibe
I umi.liuu people uu these ami Hie oilier
points whicii nnghl be raised instead
of in favor of Ihe Indians In either
use il is imperative iu the iutereits of
ull parlies Ihul the mailer be disposed
ul ouce uml for all al the earliest
pinu.ll.le dale
ll will be noted from lhe words used
in Councillor Ward's reporl to Ihe
dislricl council wiin reference lo the
street end in ipjeatiou that the deputy
minisler was evidently careful luavoid
asserting lhal lhe Indians had any
inlliui riparian rights, bul he declared
Hun Hie government hud no intention
ul purling frum any "rights lhat tbe
Indians MI'JIIT possess" until Ihey
l.ul received full commercial value
llier. tor This Is a position whieh
every fair minded citizen will accept
uiiluiiil question inasmuch as there is
absolutely no disposition in any ipier
ter, lo I real the Indians iu any bul
the mosl fair minded manner, ll is
ipnlc evident, however, that the unset
llei| stale of Ihis issue is retarding Hie
development of lhe country fur lhe in
stance under discussion is unly one of
very many difficulties whicii are devel
oping Ibrougboul the wesl relative to
Indian reserves ami tiie rights of Ihe
Indians therein.
The presence, al tlieeprcscnt lime, of
a governinenl commissioner ut Hie coast
for the purpose of investigating and
reporting upon all phases of the rela
lum. ol the Indians to Ihc governinenl
affords encouragement lo believe that
developments of a tangible nature may
be expected in Ihe not distant future
and il certainly hflo be hoped tbat the
anticipation* created by this mceus will
be  fulfilled.
The importance of this matter will
be evident when il ia considered lhal
iu the present instance jv.rc the courts
to rule lhat the Indians did not own
Hie riparian rights, the district council could at once procure the street
end desired, by way of .lease or crown
grant from tbe governmeut at a uom
inni cost while uuder present conditions
tboy i.iu be procured ouly at a cost so
exorbitant that it is beyond the ability
of tbe d,strict council to proceed witb
the proposed public' improvements at
Ibe point in question.
The proposal made by the executive
of tbe city ratepayer!' association tbat
a governinenl audit tt tht city's books
Ire made is one tbat should be given
tk* elooeit semtjny helm it is p»t
iulu effect. It Is only s fow years
since tho city was subjected to a pru
cess of this sort, with the result tbat
it cost the ratepayers over nine bun
lire.I dollars tn discover tbat every dol
lur uf revenue was duly accouutud fur
in tho records. It is quite eaay tu
discern that a repetition of this experience, while It would in no way
beiietit the ratepayers, might vury eas
ily exert a detrimental ■ influence on
the city's financial standing, inasmuch
as it would indicate that a spirit of
distrust prevails in Ihu community with
respect to the handling of civic funds.
Strictly speaking, a government audit
"nul.I he ■ ..hii:. ■ I to uu examination
of receipts and expenditures as re
vealed by lhe city books aud records.
II would show whul money had been
received uul frum what sources, what
money had been expended, fur what
purpose ami to whom paid. Any mat
lertr beyond these items would lie ba
yntiil the pale of a guvernment audit,
iu Ihu strict sense. We do not hesi|ate
In .I.. lure our belief Ibat such an umlil
wuuld only serve tu vindicate the abso
lute cleanliness of lbe city's li nun.ml
uiluiiuistrutiuii-tnd the perfect accuracy of the city's books. Where then
is the justification for the proposed expenditure uf one Ihuusand dollars or
more I
Wc do mil profess lu be informed
with reference tu the gruumls upon
whieh Ihe executive have launched
their requeit, but if it is based un
mutters whieh dn not strictly pertain
lo cily receipts and expenditures, theu
a commission of inquiry, uut a government audit, wuulil elicit Ihe inform*
lion which Ihe exuiulive is of opinion
ought lu be procured.
In any ease, befure the Executive
asks the ratepayers lo commit themselves lu any movement of such a ua
lore, ll xeruliv.c shuuld feel    lliem
selves uuder obligation tu stale pub
liely lo their fclluw ratepayers the
nature of Hie irregularities which they
suspeel ami the ground upon whieh
Ihose suspicions are base.t. The ac
lion of Ihe body of ratepayers should
be luken unly iu llie light of the full
est information loat is at present avail
able and afler the fullest and freest
discussion in whicii all sides are given
a fair uml impartial Inuring
The meeling called by Ihe executive
for Wednesday evening will afford the
needed opportunity for the members uf
Ihe executive to lake their fellow rale
payers fully inlo their confidence ami
it is tn be hoped thai Ihey will I lien
place the body of ratepayers iu position
lo intelligently discuss lhe matters at
issue su that a wise rourlusiou muv he
arrived al In view of all lhe interests
,".,.  re---.
The announcement that lhe govern
meiii has issued instructions for for
warding a cheque to tbe eity for the
amount uf the purchase price uf Hie pre
suni eity hall site for pust office pur
puses, brings Ihe city ratepayers face
tu face wilh Ine problem of a uew
eily   hull site.
Now lhal Ihis queitiou is thrown
open, lhe ratepayers are placed iu a
position of enviable advantage with
reference to solving au important problem in Ihe light of modern ideas of
cily building. II is desirable, there
fwe, thai Hie matter be approached
with due deliberation and lhat every
consul.'riiliun be giveu every project
which may be suggested, for the satis
factory selliemeul of lbe question.
Tiie problem is nol primarily one of
cosl. II is true Ibat if Iwo solutions
are available, cijuully desirable, tben
the oue which entails tbe lesser expen-
diiure should be cboseu, but tbis is a
situation which is altogether unlikely
lo arise and Ihere ran be no doubt tbat
Ihe ratepayers will be found willing to
assume any adequate expenditure, in
order lo settle thc queitiou in a man
nor that will redound to the credit and
tbe advantage of the city for all time.
It   ia,   perhaps,   unnecessary   to   oh
aerve that the question ia oue, Ibe
