The l'acillc Qreat Kuslern Railway
situatiuu wa* thoroughly discussed on
Wednesday evening when a representative conference took place In tbe city
hall among thoso present being tha
Hon. P. I,. Carter-Cotton, Mr. A. H. p.
Maetlowaii, M.P.P., 'Vancouver, Ma
yur McNeish, Beeve May, Keove Nelson, Aid. McBae, Alii. Foreman, Aid.
Bias, Aid. Dick, Coun. Bridgman and
Couu. Mathers of West Vancouver.
At the outset Mayor McNeish read
letters from tbe secretary of tbe Vaucuuver llounl of Trade, staliog tbat the
buard wuulil be represented; from the
clerk uf Vancouver, stating that iu the
absence of Mayor Fiinllay Aid. Bailer
hail been appoiuteti the city's representative, ami from Dr. McUuire, M.
P.P., C. E. Tisdale, M.P.P., ami from
11. II. Walton, M.P.P., each express-
iug regret at inability to kltepd.
In upeuiug the meetiug Mayor Mc
Neish briefly outlined the purpose) l'l
which the coufereuce had heeu culled.
The l'u,iiiu Ureal Pastern bill made
i .'iiiiii, prut mmm. relative to const rue
tiou uii the nurth shure, but compliance
with these provisiou) hail been delay
r,i ou lhc lean of the railway company.
It wat evident that tho matter musl
be pressed The importance of North
Vancouver demands these couditiuus lie
adhered to siuce Ibe industries iif the
uorth shore are being aerjoualy bamli
rapped because of delay in providing
railway facilities. In urder that this
meetiug might prove of service jt would
lie necessary,. to draft resolutions
wherewith tu make represculatiune lo
the provincial governmeut relative te
Iheir prevailing upon thc railway cnmpany to go ahead with construction
uu the north shore.
Beeve May stated that the basis of
hit previous utterauces uu this quesliun wat to be fuuml In actual fads,
iu the pledges wbicb the guvernmeut
had made ss tu their railway pulicy
■ luring the last electiou. Tbe uorth
shore was so well pleated with lhal
policy lhal nu opposition was offered
to the goverunieut candidate, which
ibowed tbe loyalty of the north shore
lo Ibe government. Thc case of tbe
uorlb shure is contained iu certain do
cuuietils whicii refer firstly, to the In-
corporatiou of tbe trm ol P. Welch,
Foley 4 Co., and secondly lo an agree
ineiil eutereii iuto by that lirm ami
the Pacilic Ureal Kaslem for railway
■ .:.' nu. imu of the P.U..K. llnei. Tbe
speaker recited the lermt of tbis agree
incut mciitionlug firstly the ruute of
Ibe railway, secondly, tbe time of Com
mcucemcut of conttructiou, thirdly,
Ibe locality iu which cumuienccmeot
ibould be made, aud fourthly, , unim
uauce of construction from that point
A diligent search of tbe agreement bad
failed to reveal any clause which pro
vlded for commeocemcot of construe
tiou under any rircuuntauces at any
point olher tban tbat designated as
witbiu ten miles of Vancouver. Notwithstanding its utmost efforts the pre
grass of North Vancouver had beeo
seriously obstructed through inability
lo obtain railway facilities, aud it wan
now proposed to ssk Ibe government
lo make the company act lu accord
ance wilb Ihe pledge uttered al Ihr
tba Pacilic Ureat Pastern bad received
in London bgd been obtained oa repr«-
eentatiiins made In the effect (bat Bur
mnl Inlet would be tba terminus of
tba now railroad. Tba financial world
expects Ibal tba word pf g government

good aa gold.  Tbe whole transaction
wai,   lllt'l'i'l'nri',   lili'i,-il   upuu   lhe   gOV
eminent keeping ita promise.
Aid. Foreman declared Ile was not
al lugelher satisfied witb the govern
ment in respect to tbia railway policy.
The province bad relumed an almost
unanimous vote in the implicit confidence tbat the government would fulfil its pledges. The first sod was In
bave beeu turned on tbe Nortb Bbure
on July 1st. The Pacific Ureal Fuel
eru usked for a change of date and
upon its own initiative the ceremopy
waa postponed until Luhur Day. Labor Day had come ami gune and Ihe
first sod was still unturned. The
speaker considered tbat it was uow up
lo the government to tell why the railway company was not doing what hud
been promised. Coosiderablc money had
boen invested on tbe north shure as a
result of the railway policy of Ihe government and some effort should he made
to get the government to make the
railway cumpauy fulfil its pledgee. II,-
felt that the government wus open lo
criticism iu respect lo this matter.
Coun. Ilridgiuaii, speaking as presi-
dent of Ihe Board of Trade, Btolrd
that the pusitiuu of lhe buard was thai
il opectetl the pledge uf the govern
menl to be made goud, but llie board
withheld Judgment iu tbe matter pond
iug the premier's reply. The spcalie:
was of opinion Uiat North Vancouver
was being made a calspaw in thc mat
ter by tbe railway company. The government shoulil decide the mutter uf
the right of-way thruugh West Van
couver from the standpoint of the
good of tin1 province, even If this
meant a ilccisiun unfavorable to the
ditlrict itself. On Sept. L'titl. Ihe iinni
date with respect to the right ut' way
bad lieen prcseuted to the goveruuieul
but still no decision hail heeu hcmlcd
dowu. It appeared tu the speaker
that lbc policy of the government was
one of masterly Inactivity, ami iu the
meantime the uorth shore was suffering.
This policy was em,- of tlie govern
man!'a owu offering ami il should lie
carried out.
Beeve Nelion bail nu apolugies tu
offer either ou his own behalf ur uu
behalf uf West Vancouver. When Ihc
P. U. P. first ul.iiiiiir.i its ruute map
the district bad asked fur time to cun
lidor it. Tbe loin dusiun was come to
that thc route chosen by the railway
company was not a good uue for the
diitrict. Being asked tu provide ■
better uue, Ihe district had selected a
ruute wbicb, while not entirely accep
table to tbe council, wai hoped lo meet
tbt railway and tbe government half

Regarding tbo problem of the riper-

have served to bring those bodies In

ami tu place them lu position to make a
fair esiiimite of the difficulties hy
which they are cuiifruiited.
Tlte communication received from the
Minister uf Hallways by the secretary

reply frum the Minister received
thruugh the effurts of Hon, F. L. Cir

stales that the Department is uut in

chief guveriiiiieut engineer slates that

The nest step upuu the part of the

wuulil appear In be lo eiideavor to ascertain why the engineer is not in po
sitiun In repurt ami whether these councils and puldic bodies can be uf any
assistance lu bis department lu tbe

other hund these efforts revealed the
t.i, t that matters have rest-In-,l an actual impasse il wuuld then be necessary lu devils sume uther proesdure.
In the luul analysis, the Minister uf
Itailways has Ihe necessary au
llnuii) to lake the matter in

entire population assembles in the
principal square, where (hey perhaps
burn tha effigy uf winter, or. indulge
in smus form of national rejoicing.
Throughout the whole ol the wurki,
however, thera is perhaps no more
curious or picturesque nuatein than
that indulged lit by the Swiss uf Zurich, ana In other parts ol thit beautiful country, on tha approach ol
spring. By far tha greater portion pi
Switzerland ia covered with anow from
late In November til) about tlio middle
of April, and thus li is not altogether
unnatural that tha Swiss abould indulge In aome form ol rejoicing when
the valleys and the low-lying hills

of rejoicing are tu ba witnessed at

here frum early morning till late ai
night a scene of ceaaalass gaiety prevails. Thu streets are brightly decorated for the occasion, and at night
the sight which tits beautiful take
Zurich presents is one ol great beauty.
Tlte principal event of the dey, of
course, is the burning nf the effigy ul

gigantic proportions, known by tha
Swiss as Uie "Bogg." This always
takes place at the stadthauplats, a
large ntien space some littlo distance
from the cily end uverluuklng the
lake. Here, un the top ul a huge jiile
uf pine lugs, well saturated with ler
ami uther highly inflammable substances, the "Bogg" will presently be
placed, and burned amid the cheers

But apart frum tlie burning of the
"Bogg" itself, there are other Intel.

It has bean proved by experience tbst

to cbauge tbu name of any town, vii
lags, city or street unless for very ub
vioiis anil cogent reasons. In tbe present case tbore are no apparont reasons
for H change, and, I should suy, snvural
good reasons for remaining as we are.
First of all, tho name of Vancpuvpr
itsolf is fairly well kuown in most parts
of tbe e-it ili.'.i'd world and the implied
connection with tbo larger city is cer
tuin]v no diiiiidinniui;.- to the smaller
Then again, tbe city has, I believe,
raised loans in Kuglaud under its present name, and is uut unlikely to require more lit tbe future.
Would it be as easy to got iho public to subscribe for civic or municipal
loans on, the security of a placo whnio
name Is unfamiliar tu thorn I It must
nolffio forgoltou that thu investor is
usually a shy ami nervous bird and
there is frequently more iu a name than
some people think.
