Mr. Mahun gave a resume uf the

WOUld, Iho bettor thu feeling lietween
lha city ind Iho Lonsdale Katate the
mors easily and satisfactorily, In view
Of tbo circumstances, would matters In
this regard lie arranged.
Aid' Biss wilful oj?s*rpts from the
minutes showing thit the councils of
paat years »nd of tho present year
made every effort to socurn tim dood
to tba parti' Tha aldermen considered
tlie present tract more suitable both
ai IS am*, and location.
Heave May repeated his assurance
of last week that Mr. F«)' had oi
preased himself ai entirely lutlsfloii
with the carrying out of the city '.< part
of the bargain. Th* reeve moutloneil
that towardi th* snd of th* ysar lir.
fell wlihsd to subdivide corlsiu pro-
party In 11. I,. 562 and Mr. llaues, as
engiueer refused to sign some of the du
eiimeiita pertaining thereto. Mr. llaues
won his cue iu tbe law suit which
followed. Tbe reeve emphasised bii
opinion tbat Ihe titne given the city
to complete Hi share of the contract
waa not considered lu tbe ossenee of
Iho contract. The speaker again dis-
associated himself entirely frum the allegation laid against the council ui
eept where his name waa ineuliuned.
Aid. Hick considered much of the
talk in this connection had been irre
levant, lie strongly conteuded that
the park aa now cunstituted wai a great
improvement ou the original purk. Thu
cily hud not |>:>i,l oue cent for thia
purl, area, therefore tba city would no!
lie mill,,',I if the whole park waa given
away. As a mailer of fad the change
of urrsiigeinculs was mule on the re
I'Oniineinlulion nf Mr.  Hancs.
At this poinl Mr. Knowles rose. "Sit
down!" said Aid. Dick in alentorian
tones. "I'va got Ihe Hour now." Aflor
u brief dialogue, intcrspenud with
shouts from lhe body nf lhe lull, Mr.
Knowlcs luul,  his seal.
Heauniing, Aid. Diek aaid that the
lllll council and engineer gol instead
of a hillside street grouml for ruad
area right up on the level aud an acre
in i..idu..ui for park purpoiei. "What
theu," he derlared, "duel this man
mem by coming here and making such
dirty iiisinuatiuusf"
Mr. I'i. il. Ilridgman, speaking frmu
the point of view of the Lonsilsic
Katate, aaid lhal lhc suggestion of Hie
change cam* frmu lhe Lonadale Kslale.
It was lining hi Ihil lhc park wuuld lie
larger iu area if the llm land was
taken ami lhe high laud was given
back. Answering a question by Mr.
I'hilllppo, Mr. l'u.i,-i,...I. slated lhal
lhc i-reek which runs Ihruugli hia park
Is 16 feet wide approiimately. Speak
ing as a ralepiyer he considered the
creek was very valuable for park pur
posca, ami would suggest lhal the ad
me uf Mr. Mawaon, thc laudaeape el
perl whu is uuw in Vamouver, mighl
be obtalued ai to the best ways uf
adding tu the beauties uf Ihc park.
The value uf Ihe laid did nol come
intn Ihe question, the apeakcr contend
ed. The pruperty uiual lie euusidereil
uuly from n atamlpuint of park pur
puses. mm.
Aid. Irwin said lhat he had 'leemed
lhc change advisable because, firstly,
he did nol think'it a good thing that
a park should lie cul inlo Ihree piecer
ami hue a public ruud running through
il, aa Ihis park hid origiuilly; ami
secondly, llie cliirietcr of Ihe soil for

Answering Mr. Knowlea, Aid. Irwin

would regard aa bad policy un lhc

Au argumout tjien ensued betweeu tbe
unu ni and Mr. Knuwles un the prevailing conditions of the debenture market
at certain poriods. Mr. KiiuwI-m also
mentioned a clause which he believed
lo be in the Munieipal Clauses Act restricting the espouses incurrei by dele
gatiuus. Tu this the mayor retailed
that thero was no such clause iu Ihc
current issue of the act.

Aid. Foreman then made reference

MrHac hid asked for regarding lhe

"V, Inn Aid I '.ii .nin n says is false

mounted Iho plalfurm declaring that

Nl. Hue When Ihc geueral uproar Lad

Council Miitlngi:
'That  Ibe rity rouacii  of  1012

Aid. Foreman roid extracts from

Aid. Diek corroborated thl Msyor's
remarks, adding that i|| Iho ovoiil of

absurd tu discuss affairs in public, seeing that publication nf the discussion
Would provide tho opposing purl ies with

Thu i.iiiinblo framing uf phqtojffajiliB
cannot ho too closely studied on ac-
eniini of the ease by which a photo
graph mny bo spoiled iu its. artistic
effects by had framing and mounting.
To begin with, slip iu mounts are vury
rarely suitable. They aro uaually made
With ugly burden and are uot wide
enough   mi   the   margin   to   idloolr.ol.i
display the photograph. The print will
nnt iio Oat, ami nothing luukt worse
than a print slipped in a mount ami
allowing au unequal turface.
Many photographeri are afraid of
tackling tboir own mounting, having
an idea lbat it is a difficult operation
and oue that requires great skill, ll
is simplicity itself and a great uniuunl
uf pleasurable occupation can be de
rived iu the lung winter evenings by
mounting uue 'n prru'j, either in an
allium or on boards.
All lhat is required is a put nf pusln,
a good still' brush ur straight edge, u
sharp knife, a piece of glass ami sume

knuwn as art paper or malt boards,
Thu latter ii tu be preferred on ac

Take up the print by one corner, flrst
and lay it dowu ou the mount. I'ress
Ihe blotting paper ou top ami rub geu

Titles Miould in nil ease be written

Mr. 1'irsklne, president pf Vuncuuver

'.-. luhed tu have before tbem alternative
plain in order tu form an intelligent

form of link lietween the two shores.
It would not inipodo the buildiug of
the bridge lo get alternative plans.
The board was just as friendly towards
the project as anyone pise.
t'apt. Worsnip, president of the ship
owners' Association, wished th* meet

Of the .other. Any opinion lie hail given
had been that of a navigator and a
iihipnwmir. It had been suid thit tbe
iippiiailinii had arisen at the eleventh
hpur. Sii or seven months ago the
Ai.ioi uiiiuil bad asked for plaus of
tho bridge. They had only received
them two weeks ago. Consequently it
waa only recently tbat they could intelligently offer any criticism.
Capl. Wursuop tbeu mentioued the
enormous volume of1'water which had
lo pass llirough the two uarruw dian
ncli. of Hurrard lulet. I.ui inen could
nut uuderstaiid thc difficulties tu unci

Tit* opposition of the aaioeialiun
was based upon the view that I lien
were WByt of obviating dangers which
were nut obviated by thc present

where much trouble hail been caused
through Ihe advice of nautical men
being disregarded. The association
was,asking that a vertical lift bridge

The (dins Uii htm forwsrtleii to the
department of public wurks sbout the
IDth pf September, *nil were rpe nlyo'l
by that ilepiirlnient in the preiem e nf
Mr. Stevens himself who urged 'he
spoody consideration of them.
The department, sccoriUpg tp sue-

to the government resident engineer,
Mr. Worsfold, in New Westminster. He j

lir. Hlevens considered Ilml tbo great
est possible expedition bad beeu used
su far as tbo government waa concern
ed, seeiug that the publio works department did not receive the plans earlier tban about Sept. HHh.
Referring lo the government subsidy

Touching upon the width of the
bridge spun/Mr. Steven* submitted In
the meeting that it woultl uoi be
right for a member ef parliament to
attempt to uie his influeuco in direct
opposition to Ibo opinions expressed by
government engineers. The member
believed that in tbii. relation a com
promise wuuld be reached since he un
dersluuii lhat the company was willing
tu extend thc span to Ililli feet. There
was uuly one question whieh euuld now
possibly delay tli* coustructiuti of Ihc
bridge.
Already |he height nf the bridge had
been agreed upon, au ndditiunal ive
feet being conceded by Ihe company;
tbo matter of Ihe spiu seemed on e
fair way to satisfactory settlement, io
that it was uow tbe. duly of the' H. I
T. k 11. (,'o. lo deinouatrate to tbe
puldic Ibat the bridge wai economically conitrueted, that every possible re
source iu tbis relatiun bad been considered.
Mr. Stciens alluded to thc fad that
Ibe district of North Vaueouver alrcudy
raised HfDMO towards the bridge (of
whicii a uuiu ni the new municipality uf
West Vaueouver has assumed the re
apuniihility of IttMO) while the cily

SHELTER FOB FOWLS
Hump ia pi ul.a I di ibe wurst eiicniy
tu fuwls, but cold winds are a very
good rival. Fowls will nut lay nud
muke progress when Ihey have to face
thoae hump wiuda, and it would pay
llic fancier who wishes for luccers to
provide shelter' under these circum-
stun, c As lu thu nature uf tbis ihul
ter, il may consist of a douse hedge,
ur u screen uf canvas, or of a proper
shelter shed. The latter is minutely
lhe best, and il will pay fur ilself in
excellent results lit a very short time.
A very peculiar thiup lhat yuu have
probably noticed is lhal fuwis seldom
uunl themselves of Ibeir roosting
place iu the daytime, and the shelter
shed i suggest is iu no way like lhe
sleeping quarters. It may, indeed, be
u ruugh ami ready as oue likes, so
lui,| as il is wind pruof on Ihree sidei

Iwu are pruvided, Ibe birdi will appro

excellent plan to lift the household
