North Arm Bridie
and Railway Scheme
North Vancouver Vitally Intareited-
Importaut fletsiou of Board of Trade
It la believed tnd hoped that Wed
iiesday night's mooting uf the North
Vancouver Board of Trade sounded a
reipiiem to the apathy which haa been
prevalent among members of lato . At
any rate, Mr Donaldson waa addressed
!iy a. quondam delinquent in the follow
iip, li'iiii: "I haven't been at a Board
Of Trade meeting for months. Mr.
Secretary, but 1 'ye spent such an interesting evening tonight and so many
questions of vital interest have been
discussed that I mean to attend regularly in future."
'I'11o.',i' members who are genuinely
iiiieui upon tho welfare ami develop
I'li-ni of North Vaueouver should muiio
tbia a popular resolution. No opinion
jl too humble to be voiced. As for
tho recent apathy—requieseut in pace!
Matters, of paramount importance
came up for discussion on Wednesday
night when the president, Aid. Smith,
presided ovor an excellent assembly.
Prior to the actual business, however,
|bo secretary read a letter from Aid.
Hi-nder.Miii regretting bis ability to attend, ami withdrawing his name from
tho executive because of many business
affairs which would 'necessitate his absence from Iho meetings. A motion
was carried expressing regret at Aid.
Heiuierson's  withdrawal.
Mr. Donaldson then read a communication from Mr. W. H. Langley, barrister of Victoria, roprcaenting "a
company applying for an act to incorporate tho North Arm Bridge and Kail-
way Company" which act was to be
■ubmittcd at this session of the Dominion parliament.
"It is tbe Intention," wrote Mr.
Langlcy, "of those at the back of tbis
enterprise, should this bill become law,
to at once take the necessary steps to
carry out the construction of the works
comprised, more particularly with reaped to tha bridgt aud the railway."
It appeared that Mr H. H. Stcvons
.had been interviewed anil that ho bad
announces! himself to be heart ily in
accord with the project ami the petition for the bill itself was to be placed
in bis hands to be presented in the
House. Ai the contemplated works
would so very materially affect the iu-
tcrcsti of North Vancouver, Mr. l-ang
Icy felt that if the Hoard of Trade
would pass a strongly-worded resolution supporting the project, il would be
very helpful. The possibility of the
iclicmo was beyond all doubt, tbo
greatest pains having been taken in
its formation
Mr Donaldshn forthwith read the
numerous clauses of lb'' Act enclosed
by    Mr  ljuigley      Briefly    the    bill;

years of Ihe |ias*iiig of the aet, and
tbo bill will become void If the bridge

This was the pioposilion wkieh hail
previously come before Hie Board of
Trade executive, the members of whicii
bad directed Ihe secretary to write to
Mr. Stevens doprecating his promised
lupporl Indite bill without consultation
with representative bodies on the North
Shorn. They respectfully requested
that he withhold bis support in* Hie
House of Commons until fhese bodies
had been eousulle<l.
Mr, A. '>:. Kealy intimated Ibat ot
tbis meeting the executive Had ruedu no
rccomineii'liiiion liul bad left tin mti
ter ovor to Ihe general mooting.
Mr. Alexander Philip feared that
this proposition would come into

■boulil   be -desirous  of  supporting  tht
prupisiiiiiu in ii general way.    Nortb|
Vancouver ihould welcome all railroads
that dosired tp come io. All transportation facilitiet would bp to tbe benefit
of tbe city, whether they be introduced
by the 0. P. H., tbe Qreat Northern
the Drunk Trunk or any other railway company- The only point witb
which Mr. Irwin was at variance wai
the duration of time which this company nuked for the commencing and
completing M the work. Ho thougbt
tbat a commencement would be mado
withiu ono year, and that thoy should
be given either two or three years to
complete the work. He moved tkat
they should formally cmlorse the action
of the Board.
ilr. Kealy said that Mr. Irwin 'I
point was very essential. He considered also that some arrangement should
bo made belween thia company and the
llurrurd inlet Bridge aud Tunnel I'o.
before tbe charter was obtained, with
reference to the ten miles for railway
along the north shore, lie further
wondered whether it was Ihe company's
intention to charge a toll for crossing
the bridge. If so it was nol Ihe .kind
which they would desire tbe government to subsidize. Mr. Kealy urged
tbat a conference should take place between the promoters ami representatives of the city and district, so that
they might ascertain something more
concerning tbe 'scheme.
Mr. Mm,leu thought that Mr. Lang-
loy should be requested to attend
At tbis point the chairman remarked
that Mayor McNeish while iu Victoria
was intending to call upon Mr Langley
in Ihis connection
Mr. Murden. resuming, proposed that
the secretary should write lo Mr. Lang
ley, saying tbat the Board finds itself
in doubt in regard to certain phases
of the bill, firstly, the length of the
time allowed for the commencement
ami completion of the work; secondly,
tbey would like lo be advised whether
the bridge would be free or wbelbor
tolls would bo levied; ami thirdly, ilm
relationship of this railway project to
that of the Burrard Inlet, Tunnel and
Bridge Company required to be very
carefully considered The speaker con
si.brc,I that it was only fair that Mr.
Langley receive intimation thai these
points wuuld  be raised,
On the suggestion of Mr. Philip, il
was resolved that a business meeting
be held in the aflernoon attended by
repjcjentalivcs 'of the various bodies
lin the Nortb Hhore, and that a public
mooting be arranged to follow iu the
evening in (.arson's hall, Mr. Ijingl.-y

11 was decided thai Aid! Smith, Mr.

. The last finishing touches are now
being added lo Ihe new brick block
built by Messrs. I,'. A. Lett and Son on
First street cast. This building is one
of Iho largest yet constructed in the
cily ami reflects great credit upon the
enterprise of its owners. The main
floor is occupied by two largo ami thoroughly up-to-date stores, each of which
is provided with a spacious basement.
In addition to these store basements,
the lower floor of the Inul.Imp contains
Iwo largo warehouses with entrance
from the lane and Ibo janitor's quar-
aers. The remaining floor space on
the ground floor, the first ami
second storeys arc occupied by
eighteen        modern       and        ultra.
of these suites contain four rooms uml
the remainder contain three rooms each.
Hy means of slisappearing furniture,
however, each suite contains apartments which arc convertible, thus increasing the accommodation liy the addition of oue or two rooms, for prnc-
li'ul purposes. Kacb suite is fitted
with a built-in snlebuurd ami a built-
in secretary. A house telephone is
likewise installed in each suite, by
means of which the janitor may be
called at any time ,tho wires also being in readiness for the installation of
the long distance phone. The block is
excellently designed to answer the actual requirements of the community
uml should prove a profitable invest-
tive light housekeeping suites.      Six went for its owners,

Iteeent development! with reference
to tbe ferry approaehei on the Vancouvar side bave brought.iuto the limelight
a proposition which promises to create
intense interest upon the part of the
ratepayers and to give rite to decided
differences of opiuion.
This particular scheme appears to
have emanated from tbe officials of the
Hrniid Trunk Pacific Bailway company
whose chief object is to procure advantageous means of access to Aleiander
street across the C. P. It. tracks from
their new wharf, immediately to the
east of the ferry landing. It is explained that tbe 0, T. P. Company
owns the property between the end of
their wharves and Aleiauder street aud
jt is likewise understood that the pro
peril carries with it tbe right to cross
tbe ('. P. II tracks, hence, by utilizing
tbe necessary portion of tbeir property
thin company could possess its own
roadway across tbe 0. P. B. tracka aud
tut to Alexander street across ils own
property. This company could likewise
find    another means of ingress   and
to this were to'be added tbe very large
vehicular traffic which is certain to
develop from tbe warehouses of a transcontinental railway such aa the Q. J.
P., there seems uo room for any conclusion other tban that the traffic at
the crossing must become hopelessly
Al for tbe access which would be
afforded from the Ferry landing to
Gore Avenue by means of the thirty
foot roadway, its practical value to
the Ferry Company and to ferry patrons is sn exceedingly Blight as to be
scarcely appreciable.
Tbe advautages of the proposed
scheme to tbe Orand Trunk Pacific are
not difficult to discover, but with respect to the Ferry Company quite the
opposite is tbe case.

truili, via Gore Avenue, a little lo the
east of their wbarf. Tbe 0. T, P. i'o.
however evidently wishes if possible
to procure an outlet over the 0 P. H
tracks and out to Alexander street liy
tbo route whicii ii at present in use for
ferry purposes, in preference to either
of the above ami with tbis end in view
has submitted a proposition to the
Board of Ferry Directors. Tiiis pro
position is that a road allowance thirty
feot in width lie cut off the ferry
property end the 0. T. P. properly par
iill.l to ami bordering on the C. P. It.
right-of-way ami that this roadway lie
continued eastward to Gore avenue,
thus giving the (I. T. P. access to ami
the use of the present ferry roadivay
oul lo Alexander slreei. The .nnseiil
of tbe C. P. K. has been aouulit uud
haa been given this ulienie upon roii'li-
tion tbat tbe G. T. P. will agree not
to iron the C. P. II. tracks I etween tbe
.   ferry roadway and Gore A vent e
In consideration nf these nrivjlegei
whit), they seek ut the bamla of the
Ferry Company, tbe G T. P. offers tojaf
allow the latter to use ils overhead
Malinger roadway for fcrr purposes
This passenger roaslway, when eon-
strutted, will run" from the 11. 7. P.
wbarf uernss Ihe C. P. H. tracks thencr-
tcrow the G. T. P. property on the
louth side uf the im. I. ■. ami will reach

terminal ing af the eorner of Vain and
Pow.ll street!.
As etplained abovo this scheme would
likewise give the Kerry Company an
outlet on Gore avenune, alou i ibe now

The commonly accepted opinion tbat
the Indian population of Canada is
steadily decreasing is shown to be altogether erroneous, by statistica pro-
I liv ilu- department of Indian Affairs The annua! rtpomof this department for the year 1910 to lllll, which
is just to hand, is optimistic throughout
and reveals conditions which will afford
gratification to all well wishers of the

Dominion are now under direct supervision, the latest additions to agencies
of the department having been made

Discussing the problem of population
the report states "The prevalent notion that the Indian is gradually dis
appearing, is not sustained by tun
lies and ill any luealily where Ihe Indians have passed through the period
of exhaustion, thai musl be met by any
aboriginal race in contact with civilisation, >l is fouml thai the population
is either stable, or upou Ihe increase."
Taking the Six Nation Indians as an il
lustration of the remarkable recuperative power of the race, tbe statistics
show that for the thirty years from
ISSil to 1610, the population of these
tribal imreust'd from i,20l in l.ilt'i, at
over one-third. The total Indian population of Canada is shown to be HITS,

Successful Social
The social ami concert' arranged by
the Indies' Aid of Knox church last
eveuing wus eminently mccCMful despite the ineloinoucy of the weather.
The arrangements wore iu the hands
of the I.u,lie-' Aid uuder the presidency
of Mrs. Van Muuster, wilb Mn. Mc
iTsss is as secretary, and everything was
carried through satiafactorily. I'akei
wero made by the members nnd friends
of tbo aid In every conceivable ahupc,
color and flavor ami wilh tee wis acre
ed free to everyone, no limit being
placed oo anyone's capacity. The concert purl nl the entertainment was left
entirely lo the mechuuical dcpurtmoul
of tbe Express I'rinling office and
judging from the applause.luughterund
favorable comment, must have neon
fairly well received. The fact tbut the
response lo the call for Hire; elieera

ai an excellent compliment, feeling
that tho emotions of tbe nudjonco were
so deeply touched liy the expresiive
rendering of Ibeir exclusive repertoire
that anything us vulgar us cheers would
bave been unseemly. The excellnt
hurmonis of the Expresi (.Ice Parly,
tbe perfect balance of tone und their
discriminating choice of songs can only
be likened to real phi fashioned rough
music, although tbo concensus of opinion, subsequent to the concert, expressed by those competent trj judgo,
was tbat thoy agreed with Ibe chairman when he said "I ba,ve beown for

days. The defences of the city were
still unfinished, There was a sort of
creeping paralysis of indifference in tbe
church and state. There was no en
thusiaim, no sturdy faith. Tbere was
a wnlening gap between nobles and
ruitica. i'aganiani was making subtle
inroads. The days of the Hebrew
state ami religion were numbered. . .
Then appeared the "second Moses,"
Tbe nobility of Ezra's pefsousl char,
.'isiiir and bii worth to the nation can
hardly be overestimated. He put an
imprint upon bis church which it bears
to this day. And as Christianity is
evolved from Judaism, Christianity itself may be said to bear to some extent
tbe marks of the "good scribe." . •
The character and achievements of
Ultra would furnish material for a
shining ami patriotic lyric. lie was

"lie bad prepared bis heart to seek the
law of the Lord ami to do it ami to

He was a man who could bring tilings
to pan iu spite of most unfavorable
conditions, Ho that a heathen monarch
put a carte lilancbe order min'lii.-. hands
for tuih mpplies ami money as might
be necessary to the success of his en
terprise. Kzra's splendid faith and
courage shine oul in tbe very inception
of his delicate ami dangerous enterprise. His path grows brighter as he
crosses albousaml miles of bedouin-infested desert. It reaches ils full
splendor es he enters the Holy rity ami
discharges his duty with unswerving
ami noble patriotism. Ezra's discretion is shown in his^tbree days' pause
at the river Aliava, aud his careful
inspection of bis company, ami bis reinforcing it with representatives of tlio
priesthood before starling on 'lie
inanli. His declining tbe armed cavalcade supplied by lbc king to guard
the caravan was a triumph of faith ami
prayer. Tlie dangers were real nnd
great. The fact that the company was
treasure-laden was matter of common
report, and there were rubber liandi in
the way. Hut the journey was essentially a religious one. i-'zra believed
that the educational power of the movement would be discounted if ho leaned
upon flic arm uf flesh. He ha.l an assurance of safety before he -i.-m.-l.

beet possible appliances for loading

will mean also tbe coming to tbii
harbor of vast quantities of grain and
other products from Alberta and Sai-
katcbewan ,iind from northern Itritiab
Columbia, and tbe need for well equipped olevators of large capacity and
warehouses and cold storage.
7, This great development can only
be satisfactorily carried out under

harbor of Montreal, where uuder the

of exponie.
8 Tbe preient dockage facilitiei in
tbe harbor are altogether inadequate
for tbe business uow being done, and
tbe warehouse accommodation is insufficient. There is no suitable equipment to meet modern requirements for
loadiug and unloadiug vessels. On
several occasious ships have bad to be
moved out to anchorage, partly ilis
charged, to allow others to berth at
the wharves tbey were occupying, and
vcaieli have often to load and unload
at anchorage. Tbeio incidents cause
heavy expenses and aflcu large demurrage dues, all tending to tbo prejudices of the harbor, and iudicate tbe
urgent need for complete organization
aud development of tbe harbor.

A letter had been receive.! from tbp

reference to the joint' deputation
which hod attended their recent meetings.
for the elnci.lalinn pf the gathering

ttitd U,. A. I1!. Kealy iyan ileputed to
dwcribe the various feature! of the
It appearoil (hat the proposal of tbe
firry director! was to enter into an
agreement with.the 0. P. R. and the G.
'I'. I', for an overhead croaiing over
the letter1! property on certain con-
<|ftions, namely the granting of a 30-
foot right of way along the southern
boundary of tba fhwry company's property. The Board of Trade executive
hail formally eupwssesl their disapproval of the scheme on several points ami
had instructed the transportation committee, whose chairman is Mr. Ij. Watts
[fouey, to meet tbo directors st their
next meeting ami ask tbut before negotiations proceoileil any further, the
■ sn •'■us- be consulted. The map, wbicb
Mr. Kealy graphically described, wes
exhibited through the courtesy of Mr.
Pbilip, wbo hud secured it from the
G. T. P. offlce at the time of thu railway commissioners' session in Vancouver.
Mr. Kealy pointed out tbat Nortb
Vuncouver had uow u fairly open way
of eiit after years of controversy.
This to a certain extent, would be sacrificed if an overhead bridgu above
G. T. P. property woro adopted. The
0. P. II. trains would not, he believed,
he broken ns at present for the convenience nf North Vaueouver traffic,
because of the existence of an alternate
passage way. This passage way was
planned to lead lo an exit ou Main
street, quite a distance from the dock
and clear over Alexandria street. In
Mr. Kealy's opinion considerable
trouble would be experienced in getting permission for Ibis construction
on Main street, us he understood that
tbe property owners strongly objected
to it. As to the .tu iTss,i right-of-way
the chances were that on account of
the great amount of traffic from the
G. T. P. wharf it would be congested
to a very undesirable extent.
Mr. Alexander Philip pronouueed the
proposal to bo altogether unsatisfactory. He bad bad a talk with Mr.
Wright, president of the Ratepayers'
Association, who was said to have recorded his endorsement of the scheme.
Mr. Wright emphatically denied Ihis.
Mr. Watts Honey had stated thai on
behalf of Ihe Board of Trade and as
their representative in a delega
tion which waited upon tbe ferry directors, he hud in no way taken part in
the arrangements. Mr. Pbilip said be
could not possibly understand why the
««I>W»7 BRuld not be ft*' aacompliahed
fact in p short time. In sequence to
tha order of the railway s'oniiuiiMiiiniirs
the plans had boen filed a month after
its session in Vancouver ami now three
months had elapsed and nothing had
boon done, And noV theft uroso this
o|d proposition of on overhead bridge,
"Tbore js surely," said Mr. Philip,
"something behind the whole affair
that 1 cannot understand."
A motion of disapproval was then
carried by the meeting.
The reports of the various committees were then received from their respective chairmen and adopted. Certain amendments to the constitutional
bylaws were ulso discussed.
There being no further business for
pressing consideration, a very successful meeting terminated.

Montreal—Tbe silent approach o/
winter has caught, to.use a vulgar expression, tbe inland navigation by the
short hair, ami this through no fault
of tbeir own. Tbe season has been a
dry one and the water has been low,
so low in fact, that this autumn has
seen the fleets entering the canal wilh
greatly reduced cargoes and at unus
ually low speed. The result is tbat tons
of freight wbicb should have reached
tidewater long ere this ure still on the
docks at the lake ports waiting trans
portatiou. Now, it will cilhet have to
come by rail, a very expensive proced
ure, or lie up for the balmy spring of
1012. Thousands upon thousands of
sloliars bave been lost as a resolt, and,
unfortunatetly, the loss burns doubly
in for it might have been prevented.
It is said that unfavorable winds
ami the dry summer are responsible for
the low deptb of water. Tbis, to a eer
tain extent, is true. There is another
reeson, however, in the various power
developments which have sprung up
along the river. Tbese companies becoming greedier and greedier as the
years go by, drain tbe waters from Iho
St. Lawrence to turn their wheels and
it has now become apparent that Ihey
are taking so much that tbe levels of
tho channel ure becoming affected.
And not content wltb what tbey already have nunc of the promoters of
these power ii-liomc> ure asking the!Ltd
government to be elloucd to divert —

M. Home Ip Jail
The man who is probably tbe conn-
try's most confirmed jail dweller hit
just compicicii here his thirty-fifth
year of continuous imprisonment mudo
up of .ono hundred separate committments varying from que year to u few
Weeks In every case Michael Murphy,
is this strange old c)i|ractor is named,
appearoil against himself, nnd In spite
of his name and bis long residence in
this country he can speak only German: Having spent so long a time in
jail, Murphy considers it bis home. He
doesn't .uiul to bo locked ont over
night attiT whenever bis term expires
he loses no time in appearing before,
the nearest magistrate and making a,
compluint of vagrancy against himself,
asking the committing magistrate to
make the term as long as the law permits. He is a bandy man around the
jail. His latest sentence expired tbis
week and after getting bis breakfast
in tlte juil, be went to the police court
and mude the usual complaint of vagrancy against himself. It was a busy
day in court, and he asked tbe interpreter to hurry bis ease as be wanted to
get back to the jail ami after having
bis .usual pu.ligreo taken be got busy
on Ilis customary round.
Pennies are Popular
While Ibe banks of this, city regard
the shipment of currency tit western
points as a regular feature of their
business at this season of the year
when the crops begin to move, there is
one phase of this annual westward
movement that is new and surprising
to the bankers. That is the demand
for pennies that has come from many
Western points where copper coin heretofore has been regarded with disfavor ami has been practically unused.
More than 10(1,000,(1110 pennies have
been started on westward (ravels within the past few weeks and it is said
that the demand continues uuabate<l.
The generally accepted explanation of
this development among the bankers
here is that tbe rising cost of living
is causing many families to scrutinize
the outgo of small coins moro carefully
than formerly and that the extension of
department stores witb their odd figure
prices has alio contributed to tbe wider
use of the small coin. Montreal is said
to be the greatest user of pennies in
the country and to require about 100,-
000,000 of those coins for ordinary use.
The number iu circulation is greatest
around the holiilay season and low ebb
is reached in miilsummer when millions
of pennies are slacken up in the
banks and sub treasuries.
