Tli* Board of 'i'railo held a geuorsl
Meeting In t||r« dty Mil on Wednesday
nilihi,  iTivsiiiiint 'Alexander Hmitli lu
tl>S 4»|f;
Sympathy w*i felt (though not expressed In resolution form) with Mr.
Donaldson, s/bo, is secretary to the
llotiril, bail su unusual amount of an-
cioul history to relate ia tho form of
/'minutes." Portions woro "taken as
resit,'' but nevertheless Mr. Donaldson
wss ciii tbe verge of sbowiug fatigue
by tho time that the last document was
reached.
These nullifies included the cones-
I I.-i w)u'cli had bean taking place
between tho Hoard of Trade and Mr.
II. If, Stevens, M.R Some uf the let-
tors dealt witb Mr. Stevens' frustration
of attempts to interfere with the work
of the dredge Mastodon in these waters. Others concerned his attitude
in the North Ann liridgo and Railway
controvcrcy. The Board had written to
Mr. Stevens withdrawing its previous
resolution doproeating his attitude and
bad spologized for misunderstanding
it, Mr. Stcvous was most omphalic
in his assurance Ibat ho would endorse
nothing that did uot receive Iho np
proval if those whom he represented.
Mr. Stevens s)so advised the hoard
to appoint a subcommittee along with
tbe committees from Ihe councils to
meet bim in regard to the question
of making North Vancouver a port
of entry, adding thnt the whole question would be thoroughly explained al
such item by the inspector of customs.
Tbe president, Coun. Bridgman and
Mr. W. .1. Irwiu were appointed n
.'onimittco for this purpose.
i '.mn. Bridgmsu moved a resolution
embodying the Hoard's appreciation
of the work done by Mr. Steven, iu
lbc interest* of the Nortb Shore 'luring Ibo short time he bus heeu memlier.
Mr. Irwin secondi'il and Ihe motion

Mr. Donaldson, then announced thst
in sn interview w'lb Ml. Stevens, tin
member bail slated thai Mr. Rosa,
chief inspector snd superintendent of
post offices in the Dominion was on
bis wsy to Vancouver and on bis am
val would Uke up the question of extending free msil delivery to Nortb
Vaueouver. •
Mr. 0, II Mordcu wondered if Ihi
house-to bouse delivery would nocewl-
Uie Ijorth Vancouvor'.-> post office lie
coming * sub-posl ofUee lo Vancouver
eity. If so, would it be desirable for
North V'sncouvert. The speaker' presumed that il would mean ilia! Ihe local returns would lie included in Dip
Vsncouver eity returns, aud oil ll.r
revenue derived from the post office in
North Vsncouver would go in the 'ur
ger city; also Ibat Ihe internal arrangements would b* controlled and dircctej
by Ihe Vsncouver postmaster. Mr.
Morden thought they ought to understand precisely what tbe situation
meant. In two years' time Ihe pupulu
tion wuulil demand * bo in; lo -bouse
delivery, *t> what was tbe use ol I.-mg
themselves up for Ibo sake of a temporary sdvanUgef Ur. Mordcu moved
tbst t committee be appointed to wait
upon Mr. Boss sod thoroughly discuss
lbc question with him.
I'oun. Bridgman, in sivoinliiv. bid
stress on the need Nortb Vaiuouv r
was experiencing for ■ free mail delivery.
Mr. irwln recalled Ihsl Ib* Boer I nl
Tiade had considered Ihe matter some
lime sgo wheu it wss decided Ilia! Ihe
populslion did uot justify s housclo
bouse delivery. He bad never heard
'- of auy objections to Ibe Institution of
sucb s delivery. Mr. Irwin *lso
pointed out that Ihe mail musl come
V\vo, new members having been enrolled, the treasurer, Mr. Shaw, declared the liiniiieei; of tbe Board to
bo SHIMS.
Reporting. on the activity of tbs
Publicity and Jnformution Committee,
Mr M ui .I-.. urge.| the advisability pf
communicating *iit|i the largo Indus-
trial centres of tho old world and of
tbo oast with a view to gathering data
as to tbeir methods aud also with s
viow to intercsting,itben) in the Nortb
Shaft.
Mr, J. Stephen wss iu agreement witb
the ides, intismueh as around llurrurd
inlet tbey were shortly to hnve a large
whoiesale distributing point. He
thougbt it a good suggestion to eor-
deapond with the industrial commissioners of sucb cities us Hamilton, Toronto,
Wolland, Pittsburg and Clevelend.
Tho Board - thun formally approved
tho action of the city council in setting aside two and a half acres for a
drill hull sito ami a resolution expressing satisfaction wilb tbo attempt thnt
is boing made lo raise a I'anailian militia corps in the city was-curried with
applause.
Mr. Stephen, speaking an an officer
of the Canadian militia said that tho
corps occupied n unique position and
had a peculiar use. Its motto wus do-
fence, not defiance.
It wns liable lo be called out to
assist civil power and Mr. Stevens recalled tbat he had ou three occasions
been under orders lo do this.
Mr. Vi. 0. Gladwin, a reserve officer,
said it was nn excellent thing for
young men; also il meant another pub
lie building for Ihe city.
It was decided that a letter of thanks
should be forwarded lo Ihe proprietors
of tbe I,on.",inls- theatre for tbeir invitation to tiWiuuming performance.
Tho Boafdllnully intimated that it
dot* not intend to endorse any franchise for a railway lo Die Peace river
country until the railway program of
l-isili the Dominion and Provincial
governments in regard lo railway cun-
stnii imu iii luu is definitely known.
Tbe secretary read a communication
from tbe city clerk to Ihe effect ihut
an application to incorporate the Vancouver and Peace Biver Hailwny Com-
pany would be made al Ibe next session of parliament, and he was in-
slructcd to notify Ihe city clerk tbat
the board did not consider it wise at
tbe present moment lo express auy
opinion in connection wilh the application for a charier. II was decided
that the executive should be appointed
as a commillee lo communicate with
both tbe provincial and Dominion governments in regard lo tbeir railway
program for Ihe ensuing year and that
in doing so they should lay special
stress on North Vancouver's interests.
There being no further business for
consideration, the meeting Ihcn adjourned.
IMPOSING CHURCH EDIFICE
When tho carol was developed by com-
posers of tbat period and aung by all
classes of tho people. Of later times
it has boon neglected and witb one
or two notable exceptions has not re-
eeived any attention from niiisieiuns.
Ono sometimes wonders what tho future of this pleasing and1 timo honored
custom will bo in Canada.
The congregation of St. Andrew's
Prcsbytorlau cbureb has decided to
build a beautiful new church in order
to provide accouimodalion and equip
ment for its growing strength. The
present building is already too small.
About one hundred now members have
been added lo tbe roll during tbo lust
few months aud the growtli of the
city demands a corresponding activity
upon the purl of tbo church to pro-
iiJe those helpful influences which the
gospel and the church alone can provide
for the many thousands who aro emu
ing to our land.
The proposed new church will lie
erected in frame, upon slono foundations and will afford s seating capacity

RATEPAYERS' ASSOCIATION WILL
ENDORSE CANDIDATES
Revorslou to Initial Policy
The North Vancouver Batepayors'
Association intends this year to depart irom its policy hitherto, aud ad-
bore to tbat which was adopted at its
formation, namely, to endorse certain
candidates for the municipal elections.
The associations which has ulwuys insisted upou tbo fact that it exists to
support, not to hamper the council iu
any of ita enterprises, i- going to take
a huml in tho election of tho city's
representatives for tbo coming your.
Four questions have been formulated
by Ihe executive uud after tbey have
been passed on by the general members
they will be presented to each of tbo
candidates. A special meeting for this
purpose will be called for some dato between Christmas and Iho New Year.
The candidates will be giveu ample
time to pcruso the queries and concoct
their answers at leisure. After tbese
questions buve been answered before a
general meeting of the Association the
body will proceed lo vole accordingly
So far Ihere promises lo be no oppo
sition to Mayor McNeish lm tbe al
dcrmauic field ia being briskly entered.
Public School Children's Entertainment
Tho Horticultural Hall was crowded
to tbe doors last nigbt when tbe children of the local public schools took'
part in their annual ontcrtainmont.
Needless to say, parents assembled en
masse and had no reason to be anything
but gratified at tbo manner lu wbicb
tbo kiddies disported themselves in the
oxorcisos and drills so carefully taught
thorn by the present efficient .staff.
Probably tho most interesting feature
of the event wus a reading contest for
which Prof. K. Macuaughten of the Mc-
Gill University was the donor of three
special prjzos. Tbe picco chosen for
enunciation was Wordsworth's "luti-
mationa of Immortality," a selection of
unusual difficulty. The young contestants tackled it splcudiil and made tbo
adjudicator's task oue of unexpected
delicacy. The children were known.
by numbers ouly, Ihis being considered
the acme of fairness to all concerned
and wheu tlie numerals of the prize
winners were announced tbey proved
to bo Miss All situ Steacy, Miss Janet
Eve Mediae and Master Hqbert Hope.
Professor Mncnuugbtcu, who adjudicated, referred to the countless tiroes
bo had partieipuled in events of this
kind, but declared he hud never before
had such difficulty in picking out the
winners.
Mr. A. H, Steacy presided und made
a brief speech of coiigrn lulu lion. Prior
to his arrival (after u whole chapter
of accidents, with over crowded cars,
etc.) Mr. A. tf. McDowell presided over
a gathering which was iu itself a proof
of the great education advancement of
North Vancouver.

Montreal, que.—In reply fo the caustic criticisms of alleged Canadian land
speculation appearing recently in the
London Times, Prank W, Gardner of
London, writing to a well known Montreal publication says; "The purchase
of real estate through reliable Arms
within Ihe City limits of the established cities of Canada, which have vs.st
tributary territories as yet undevelop
ed, is a safe and sooml investment.
The prosperity of Canada is founded on
the safest basis in Ihe world, tbe pro
duction of wheat." It is also noted
that the Times writer, in his sweeping
linm I., made one exception, namely, in
the caso of Winnipeg, where, he says,
the high price of land in the heart if
tbe eity today is based on the large
and Increasing population of rural
Manitoba, whose solid prosperity is s
virtual guarantee that even in lean
years Ilie positiou of that metropolis
will not be seriously shaken.

Have You Figured the Lots
From "Busy" Signals?
Suppose a customer is about to order something or
other over your telephone. The operator finds your
line or lines engaged. The customer must wait—or
order somewhere else. Maybe he chooses to wait—
calls again—again finds your line or lines busy.
That means a possible loss of a customer.
The business man needs adequate telephone service for the accommodation of his
business and his customers. When you lose
customers through "busy" signals, it has
been proved that your telephone facilities
are inadequate. '\X
People who gjet business make it easy for meir customers to get them and have the number of telephone
lines their business requires. The number should be
determined by the amount of use at the BUSIEST
time of the day.

HOW OUK M. I"ii. TBAVEL
Members of parliament travel free of
cost oii railways of the Dominion ami
the words "members of parliament"
include both senators and members of
the House of (loinmons; but there Is
this important difference—while senators are given their certificates of
transportation upon tboit appointment
ami retain tbem for life, er aa long us
Ihey ore mentally ami pecuniarily qual-
iliesl the members of the House of
Commons hove lo yield up their certificates ibe day Ihey sre defeated at
tbo polling booths or as soon thereafter
as Ibeir conscience permits.
This privilege is secured lo the legislators by ou amendment made lo the
Ilailway Act of HUM, when il was provides! that all companies iu receipt of
subsidies from Hie Dominion shall lur
nisb free transportation on any of Iheir
trains lo members of Ihe Senate and
House of i'"iiiini.ii." with Iheir bag
gage:
The working out of this orruugcincnl
is quite interesting, The certificates
which ure issued by the clerks of Ihe
two Houses of Parliament ure usually
for u calendar year, but in u yeur sueh
as Ibis when Ihere is u general election
and a complete overhauling of tbe personnel of the House of Commons there
has lo bo a recalling of the certificates
issued lo those who are deefuled, and
the issuance of new certificates lo
their successors. As the result of Hie
general elections K'hifh look place in
I'anad* on September 21*1 lasl, there
ore $1 men who were nol in Ihe last
House, and who bud to be provnlc-l
for in the mutter of railway passes.
Accordingly jusl as soon us the re
suit of the elections was mode definite
the clerk of Ibe House of Commons,
through 11. V. Wacdoiinell, clerk of
Transportation, sent out notifications
to the .1. ii.'is .i members asking Ihem
to return iheir pusses and lo Iho credit
of Canadian legislators is must he suid
lhal less thun half a dosen of Ihem
bad to lie written to a second lime
although Hi.' majority of Ihem uudur
stood Ibnl lbc posses were good for Ibo
balance of Ihe calender year and did
not realize Ibal their defeat ut Hie
polls curried wilb ll Ibe loss of their
privilege of free travel.
If any defeated member of jarliu
enl attempts to travel upon bis pass
ufler the company has Iscon notified
Ibe conductor lakes the puss an I compels Ihe cx-legislotor lo poy his fare
iike any ordiuury individual,
Should any menilier of lbc House of
(,'ommjui lost bis certificate be notifies tbe clerk of the House of Commons
and a duplicate is issued, the railway
company being notified to tbat effect,
and if Ihe missing certificate turns up
II is promptly confiscated by Ibe conductor.
Mauy of Ihe new members think Ibat
thoy sre entitled to carry their wive*
and families upon Ibeir parliamenUiry
erlificoles, but they arc soon disillusioned, and lind out thai Ihe privilege
is a personal one.
Previous to tbe passage of tho free
pass law, (he members of both Houses
wero giveu sn allowance of ten cents
a mile from Ibeir homes to the Capital
and bach again, and us most of tben)
travelled upon passes anyway, this
amounted to a substantial addition to
tbeir indemnity, "ut. now they are

BBOBNT BBIDOB DBVBWPtfBMTS
Witb respect to the engineering features of tbe Second Narrows bridge,
(ke progress of the past few weeks has
aeon tbem satisfactorily disposed of.
Ihe several items concerning whieh any
uncertainty existed bave been reduced to definite lines and it is now
known to a certainty juet wbat sort
of structure will be built. Tbo determining of tbese engineering matters,
while it has certaiply moved the project further along towards actual accomplishment at tho same time has developed unexpected difficulties in the
inancial aspects ef the proposition
' which it becomes necessary to arrange
before construction can commence.
It was originally computed tbat a
suitable bridge could be constructed
at au approximate cost of oue and one-
quarter million dollars aud financial
plans were laid upon Ihis basis. Tbe
proportions of the several contributions
which bave been made towards tbe
project have been determined, in ■
large degree upou the basis of tbe proportion whieh each represented, of the
accepted total cost of tbe bridge and
by this moans, from governmental and
municipal sources a total of one million dollars hss been secured. Had it
transpired Ibal Ibe requisite structure
could actually be built for the amount
of Ibo original estimate, it is quite
evident thai financial considerations
need have caused uo further hesitation, and it is safe to say that construction would have been pushed witb
Ilie greatest expedition.
In point of lad, however, the changes which have been found advisable
in Hie architectural features of the
bridge hove ioereased the cost of construction by nine hundred Ibousomi
dollars in round figures, tbe m/el n
tiiuslo being, it is understood, two million one hundred sod twenty-five I Imu
ssud dollars.
  a
Al Ihe present stage ol' proceeslings
Ihe one vital question which await*
satisfactory answer is, where is this
ailditlanal sum lo be procuredl Once
this pwtter is arranged, the bridge itself will lake tbe form of concrete and
steel as speedily ss actual construe-
tion will permit.
11 is generally known that tbe Burrard I ni.-I, Tunnel and Bridge Com-
pm,. has a statutory borrowing power
of seven hundred snd fifty thousand
dollar*. Were Ihis power exercised
smi Ibis sum rendered available in
addition lo Ihe one million dollars
already suliirribid, tbe total would
then bo oue million aeieu hundred aud
lil'ly llious-aiiil dollars, leaving a balaact
of tlirec hundred mul seveuty dye thousand dollars yet to be provided, lo meet
tbe estimated cost of two million one
hundred snd twsnly-five tboussud deb
Inn.
The practical value of Ihis statutory
borrowing power is materially affected
by the fact that the. bridge is not to
be i. toll bridge as for vehicular and
pedestrian traffic, a fact which would
render « extremely difficult, if nol impossible lo procure the money on the
money market. In order to mske this
borrowing power of any practical value, it therefore becomes necessary tbat
Hie bonds of the bridge Ij'ompany
should lu- guaranteed by either the municipalilies or tbe government.
in' order to expedite matters a*
mu.-fa *s possible the Beard of Directors his iulructed it* epgtoem in
Uu*>« to prw**d with th* prspws-
tioe ef d*t*iUd ptaa* fof tie bridg*

tk* ■ftvlaeiat *H*»*u*4 **« th* r*
Hpei-iivo municipalities whieh are in
terestpii in tbe undertaking for in
creased financial assistance.
The application bas been favorably
received by each government, but in
each case the question ha* been ssked
What are the municipalities prepared
to do ig tha matter! It may, there
fore, be safely concluded tbat this
question is significant snd tbat tbe ac
tion of the respective governments will
he determined to a considerable extent
by tho disposition which the people
show to help themselves by authorising
further assistance municipally.
in arranging further financial assist
ance for the bridge, it will be readily
apparent, tbat it is desirable to pro
tect tbe borrowing powers of tbe com
pany from infringement, as far as pos
sible, by providing further assistance
in the form of cash bonuses .or sub
•criptions for shares, in order tbat the
borrowing powers may bo beld in re
servo to the utmost attaiuable extent
to provide fdr contingencies, or fur fur
ther developments as the business of
Ihe company develops snd its opera
tions extend.
II is estimated that the preparation
If tbe detailed plans, which is now in
'•and, will require six or seven weeks
.1 is possilde by means of prompt se
tion upon Ihe pari of the rauuicipali
ties In move the financial arrangements
along concurrently with Ihe drawing
of tbe plans in sucb a way that those
matters will be satisfactorily adjust
ed witb the municipalilies aud the governments by Ihe time thai Ihe plans
pll ready, in wbicb case tho Directors
will be in position to proceed inline
diately to call for lenders for th. con
atruction of the bridge.

faet a valuable opportunity of conferring very material benefit* upon the
North Shore. At any time, every item
that goes to swell the aggregate amount
of trade carried on through local .-ban
nels, thus increasing the amount of
money placed in circulation locally, Is
of appreciable service in promoting the
interests of the city ss sucb, of the
community at large, and of the individual property owners, but Ihe Im
portamc of tbi* milter is greatly in
creased al sucb a lime as Ibe Christmas
season, wheu all . iii/.-us are spending
money freely and a Urge volume of
trade is availajj|e. There is s close
and vital relationship betweeu tbe prosperity of the »ny aud tbe volume of
tbe local trade. Any rily whose le
cal trade is at a standstill or is de
creasing is cither stagnant or on the
down grade. The steady increase of
local trade is oae of tbe surest and mosl
substantial assurances of prosperity
which p city can exhibit. Kvery dollar tbat can be added to tbe amount
of Christmas trad.- done by our local
merchants helps lo swell tbe total aod
is of real moment te the community.
An inspection of the goods exhibited
in Ihe local stores will convince shop

Campbell, Ibe Ohio Scolt, who lirst
used Ibe hot blast in making pig iron,
to Andrew Curncgie, in whoso colossal
operations tbe iron and sler-l manufac:

"The first printing presses woro
developed by Seotl, Cordon and Campbell; Ihe stereotype presses necessary

from an inventor of Scottish blood; the

the two most noted editors iu the United Slsles were James llurdon Bennett

"If these remarks, too tedious, 1

"If, es I veulure to hope, you think
well of our work, then I am here to
acknowledge wltb gratitudo our large
indebtedness le lbc Scottish rsce snd

NOTICE
TO HOLDERS OF NON-REGISTERED AGREEMENTS FOR SALE
Contrary to (he usual practice the Assessment Notices for
1912 have been sent to the registered owners of property
according to the Land Registry records.
Up to the preient, pyrcha«r» have beei) in the habit of
notifying the city authorities that the property had changed hands
so that notices of assessment and taxation should not go astray.
This form of registration pf 9WI»*F» has heretofore been deeded
sufficient for city purposes, but owing to a recent decision the
city council is advised by its solicitors to recognise these owners
only who appear on the records of the Land Registry Office.
Unfortunately a great many never regUter their deeds or agreements.
The North Vancouver Land and Improvement Company
has received numerous assessment notices for 1912 for property
which it has sold and which has since changed hands two or three
times.
'    .
The Company, therefore, desires to notify perioni who have
purchased from it that they should take steps to ensure notices
of assessment and taxation being tent to them io that they may be
come aware of the value at which they are being assessed and
pay taxes as they fall due.

I You never know, says t contributor
In the Briljleli News ot Cmiaila, whether ^|ie grey-heeded bachelor is a tragedy pr a farce. I think he is mostly
!trei/><ly. Anyway, he is somothing
to be sorry for, even when, as occas.
iuiiiiN, happens, he is eublinie—and he
can he sublime jn self-abiiogatipii. .
I have si-oil .barlicliirs In their com
fortahle houses a,in| have enjoyed theif
brotherly hospitality. I have left the
house with them—they |o some orrunil
in the town, I to the inexorable train
They have turned down the light ami

my mind, their coming bai-li; when
not   '
Fur them the blazing hearth  shall
hum,
.Nor  busy  liousewifo  ply her  busy
ovening care
.No children run to greet their sire's
return
Nor climb his knees, the jenvied kiss
to share.
The prosperous harliclor doesn't have
to hear a child crying in the night.
Hut there will ionic a time when he'll
wish lo heaven ho could. Pool chap,
he fumbles wilh his key, he wonders
what sort of heaven it would be, If
only there were a lifted face and a
cheerful voice nulling towards tlm
door.
Well, the Lord help him; poverty
stricken his prosperity; a root out of a
dry ground, withered and hungry for
the simplest, profoundest pleasure,
The bachelor in public life—look at
him, even When lie is eminent. ,Conic
close to him mul you sec how crippled
Ilis service is. How magniticent he
might be if his philosophy of life were
only rooted in life itself. The childless husband, the childless wife, are
pathetic enough, even when they are
mil blameworthy. Hut the man who
knows neither wife nor child, he should
never set in judgment over those who
know both.
I bave been a bachelor; I am a hus
band and father who Amis himself
from time to lime thousands of miles
away frnm the real temple of peace—
in in noisy peace sometimes; hut
peace all the samo—to which his
thoughts go ns Ihe flower turns towards
Ihe sun. This day have I sen tho

|U> Martinson resnmed. ' Tho Am-
ciation thought tbe blasting ul tbe
quarry was being f»rried on with great
carelessness. Chunks pf stone were
hurtling dnnger'pusly iii nil directions.

to lm put-of-doors. Thii h*A been
an overy day occurrence since tho np-
pninlnienl of the new foreman and it
was a matter which required atteutlon.

The members of the association
spoke briefly one suggesting tbat the
men employed on blasting should tool
a loud foghorn or blow a trumpet or
ring a reverberating bell instead of
merely yelling "Fire."
