those streets which ore destined lo be
lulled upon to accommodate the more
congested sections of lhe city's popu

A cross sectiuu of such a slreei in

works of a permanent character, whieb
it must accommodate for tin- well

Inuuit) ul large, readily reveals the do
iruluhii of r|meious streels iu Ibis
aspect. Whot with witter pipes, storm

it  it completed,  is on  Intricate uml

works, whose tnaliltenance in goml or

coininuuily. Eor this reason streets
of spacious width are advisable, iu
order to permit of on arrangement of
these essentials such as will render
I ham readily accessible, with the least
possible iiilerfefoocc with vehicular
and other trallic.
Modern tendencies in the important
mailer of architecture, in lbe business

since strongly the need of slreelt of

from 11 bygenie polnl of view in thiwu
tedium iu which the streuts aru shut

by Iho towering , height of "sky

Important matter of fire protection fur
flier enforces lhe necessity of wide
streels under such conditions. Even
with buildings of moderate height 11
narrow stroot practically invites a conflagration, Inasmuch us a hnl fire will
readily leap Irom one side to the oilier;
bul a broad stroot gives the lire light
iug force a fair chance of confining
even 11 liercc blaio wil Inn well dolincil
limits. The street, however, which
could fairly ids iui in be a broad slreei,
as for lire protection, when ilnm.c.i by

strut nl  th,. buildings rise lo eigiit

renders il necessury for us In revise
our opinions of what really constitutes

The complicated nature of lhe Irulli,

lo indicate again lbat the cily which
is to measure up tu llio besl sluiidards
of city (dunning, in new of future de
udopuicitls, must be chuructcrized lit
streets of ample width. A few years
ago lue vehicular trallic upon those
streets wus confined lo street cars,
wagons, buggies und other vehicles, all

huwever, lire vastly different, iiuis
iniiili as while the horse propelled vehicle still remains, we have now tb,'

i(tieiitl) lbc exercise of an over cautious
spirit with reference to width of

slept could lie taken toward making
these slreei,, or either of Ihem, of
a uniform width of one hundred feel
throughout, tucb action would certain
ly be in the public interests Speaking
broadly, Norlb Vancouver can make
no mistake in following a general pul
icy favorable lo streets of spacious
width throughout, and any action that
uin be taken during the early slags* of
lhe city's tlovelopmcul iu lbc practical
application of tuch a policy will be
found, in Ihe light al future yeart, lu
be in the best intereiti, of the city,
inasmuch as all indications poiut io
the conclusion that il it Ihe city which
provides streets pf exceptional width
today thai will be found pollened of
slreets of sufficient Width under condltioni as Ihey are destined to ■oblsin

"The plun we huve just seen," suid
lhe uldertniiu, "appeals lo me us being
satisfactory. The proposed subways

Alilcruiun Forcmuti shared lhe sume

reuHuntilile. ile wus fully sulisficl
lhat tho matter hud been gone into
thoroughly by lhe Vuncouver council
und  engineering  ilepurlinent.
Alderman Dick, while nut wishing lu
reflect upon Iho plun, spoke upun the
Importance of having mme time to
examine il thoroughly and in ilcluil.
"While I appreciate," lie laid, "Iho
hard work of the council and engineering tlopartmont of Vancouvor, ami
while I rcolir.o that possibly there is
placed before us lonighl ono of tbo
best lufewny propositions, ut present
1 can't soy J know it. I cannot gel

say what a good thing it ii without

Dick impressed upon liis hearers tho
furl, that bo waa by no moans ad
vonoly criticirlng or doubting Ibo
• iinnii lei of ihe plan, lie merely
wished for time to go iuto'lti many
points of detail.
Alilorman Mcllae waa in agreement
with thii view.
Alderman-Bin expressed plcusure
that Ihey at laat loomed to be getting
nearer te tbe end uf litis subway busi
ness. Ue considered witb Alderman
Irwin that the ferry louse was a matter fa be eirefully looked into.
The mayor agreed tbat it was well
tbet tbli matter had been apoken of.
The ffrry board would look iuto it
before many mere days had elapsed.
They were fortunate, added ills worship, li| being goveruetl by such luws

Jawi tbo Bailway (loinmissionorii had
absolute power. Tbere was never any

I should like, with your permission,
to lay before your readers somo opinions on civic problems wbicb I truut
aru not inopportune. ,
First, In regard to au extension of
tbu suweruge system. In Junuury last
few .people seemed to approciuto tbo
lipcewity for a rapid extension of lateral sowers to deal with thu unsanitary
louilitioii uf tbo moru congested portions of llm city. Now as tbo hot
weutlicr is rendering the overflow, or
seepage, frum septic tanks'very uhvious
tu one's olfui'tory orguu, it is generally conceded Ihut It Is must desirable
to have lliesu extensions, but wo are
liilil llieri) is no credit to proceed with
the work, coiieonuontly another yeur is
to |hin» during which we uliull Iiuv r
un enlarged risk of disease, wbleb may
be traced lo this source, (iruiited thai
those extensions cauuul lie proceeded
with Ilils yeur, lhe situation cau be
mitigated on those streets where
sewers have been laid uud connections
brought lo lbc lot line, under locul
improvement bylaws; if lbe council
wuulil tuke action under section llll,
sub section l.'IU, uf the Municipul
Clauses Act lo compel owners of abut

places one muy nole the overflow of

line launches for ferry purposes, but
thul in view of tho difficulties that
were being experienced iu securing a
suitable ferry boat, he thought lbe
wisest course would be to purchase a
gasoline launch that would temporarily
hll their requirements. They would
then have lo apply to Ihe ratepayers
for money to build one or more suit

be siillicieul for all traffic for thc next
