Tltws wars |wfT|mpor|#nt features
at (he Board of Trail' meeting which
WM lislil sn Wednesday night !"«' in
the ally hill, Ths one was tha ills
fitisioii sn tbe hirhpr question, the
culmination of which wae the appointment of a committee of members pf
tha Hoard consisting of the president,
AM. Hittiili snd Mr. Shepherd, tp
confer with committees from tbe city
council sinl tbe dlstriet council is to
tba best methods to be idoptetl in
handling tbe whole harbor question.
The second feature wu.i the report of
tbi president, which beciuse of ifs general interest ind ita comparative
tallies concsrnlug the' shiping qf Burrard Inlet ind tbit of tbe birbor of
Montreal wis listeued to with the cloa
est attention and it its conclusion elic

Mr. \ V. Wilbur, (I. S. Consul (lin

Tbe preiitlsnt tbsn resd bis report,
which wss intereating aud comprehen
.in1, treating witb confidence snd
marksfl latslligincs all the point* of
vital intercut to the city of'North Vsn
couver. Among theae were tho new
poet ofilce, tbs Wallace Shipyards Company ami tbe question of their tsies,
ths letting of contracts to local industries, comparative tabic* of tbeshipping
iu thia harbor ami that of Montreal,
the visit of ths railway commissioners
Ibe dredging of Ibe First Narrows, com-
uiunicitiou witb Ibe 1'eace river coun
try, the population ami tbo general
welfare and prosperity of the city.
Alil.-riui.il Ilenilcrsoo tben addrcseil
tbs meeting. He said tbit there wore
two matten of tbe greatest importance
which bo thought shouhl roceivu epe
cial atentioo from the members of the
Board. These wero tbe matter of in
tererting the authorities at Ottswa in
Ihe harbor question anil thr matter of
representation before tbe railroail com
minion wbicb woulil n't in Vsncouver
at tho end of ths month.
Ths Boanl of Trailo of Vancouver
and tbs mayor of that cily, aaid tbe
alderman, bail both been spproscbcil
and bad been asked to act In unison
wltb North Vsncouver, but no far both
bad seemed apathetic snd nothing hsd
lieen done. It WSS dear to bim tiiir
the wsterfroatsgs must be tbe upbuilding of Ihe city. If tbii Board wae nu
aide to obtain tbe co operation of Van
couvcr and could not get Ihe council to
join them tbfy should go ahead alone
ami make ao appeal to the government
to help them before It was too late.
The date sf tha opening of tbe
Panama Canal would, be /sit sure, bs

Importance, but of national importance

induced here st SO early date.
Sid. Smith ssid he toil grest plea
sure in supporting Hie remarks of AM.
Henderson. Hi ssid that the harbor
should bs | public one md tbst it
should bs qndrr public control. He
quoted from |S Interview with s Mr.
Lewis sf Bristol, Knglsnd, who urged
Ibe public control of harbors snd moved that I committee be appointed ts
take np tbe milter for North Vancou
Coun. Bridgman asid that the nutter
bad been taken up by the Board of
Trsde tt Vsncouver with Gspt. Tr.,up
of thi 0. P. B. ssd that it would laid
to ths better regulation sf ths harbor.
Mr. Henderson hsd refsrsd ts the loesl
harbor duss, compsrlng tbam witb
Bis Frinclsco. He aid that it was
a t ommos report thst this wis the ws
lest ss4%|sspsst bsrbor ss ths coast.

Aid. Hnndewpn Iheughl there was a
good  mild   wwpn why  tbo   Bosrd
shpllld let Slope ill this mutter. Tlie
0. p. II., he Mid, practically ow.io-i tbe
whole of the waterfront on tbo south
side pf the Inlet anil they should avoid
any attempt to cross the path ot that
railway. He could foresee diilimlty
in getting the sytupitby of the m to of
Vincouver ami thought that tboy
would do better by adopting a lino of
their own. He seconded the motion of
Aid. Smith.
Mr. Wood wae tlso in accord with
Aid. Smith's motion mil so expressed
himself, is did Mr. Townsley snd Mr.
D. N. Boberlson. The lattor said that
Portland was spending $3,51)0,1)11(1 in
view of the opening of the canal and
that Seattle and Oakland were also
■"I""" to spend money in improvements.
On being asked fo speak on the subject by the president, Mr. J. P. Fell
urged a "festina Isnte" platform and
he said that tbe matter of tbe dredge
which Mr. Bridgman had told them
was to be st Alberni for at iesst s
year waa of far more importance than
the matter of a harbor commission at
tbe present time, improvements in the
harbor and better regulation for tlie
protection of life, property and shipping wore tbe points to lie ksmutered
at. It was childish, be ssid, to suppose tbst they would get |, government commission to deal with the
North sids as op ml to tbo south side
snd not to cooperate is waste of time.
He urged thst whatever waa done tin-
advice qf practical shipping mou
should bs taken. Antwerp, Hamburg
and Soutbsmptou bad been referred to
aa apleodid examples of harbors wbicb
bad been controlled by a central authority. Ss far us Southampton was
concerned Mr. Fell said it waa in tbo
bands of tbe London sod South West
ern Bailwiy and that that concern controlled it entirely. He himself had
been for s long time iu s secondary
way connected witb the Mersey docks
and harbor board and that was not a
flourishing concern. Tho charges at
Liverpool bai| been raised higher and
higher and. since the L. S. W. B. bad
opened up Southampton tbe Utter port
had taken tbe shipping from Liverpool.
Concluding be said it would bo a serious eror to try to divide tbo North,
ami South Shqro on the matter.
The questiou was then put ami tbo
committee cboscn to act as stated
above. Tbis was, boweveri iu a form
a good deal niodilie.l from that originally indicated.
Ur. Fell then moved lhal a strong
resolution be drafted by the prasideot
and I'niin. Bridgman wilb regard to
tho dredge, that Ihe Vancouver Board
of Trade be asked to endorse it and
that a copy of it be forwarded to Ot
tawa lu any case. This motion wa*
The president of the Board of Trade
was asked to meet the railway commissioners who are scheduled to meet in
Vancouver on tbe Hint of tbe month.
A large snd enthusiastic gathering
ol local Conservatives oonvonod in the
committal rooms, Esplanade wcit.lsit

the local organization of tbs party for
the approaching federal campaign.
The mooting was called io order by
Qeo. II. Morden, president, ol tho N.
V. Conservative Association, wbo was
afterward elected chairman ol tbo
meeting. Mr. Percy King wai appointed secretary.
The rules laid down by the exscu-
tivo committee tor governing lbs primaries were previously rend. The
chairman made a short speech, taking
sn optimistic view ol tip, prospects of
the conservative party both in Vaa-
ootivqr riding and thrnqgbout Ihe Dominion. He referred briefly lo tbe
several isstaes which continued to ninko
a oase ol exceptional strength against
the liberal government and Sir Wilfrid l.iiiiiiei' and also lo the telltale
indications ol fatal weaknesses which
had developed within that party its-
ell both in Ihe house nnd throughout
the country. He lurther dwelt upon
the. highly satisfactory conditions existing in the Conservative party in
every particular and throughout tbe
entire country. 0s referred in eulogistic terms to Mr. B. J,. Borden,   des
cribing him as | leddir v hu, because
pf h|s excellent personal qualities, as
well as the marked ability is a leader whicii he bad developed ao noticeably ol lite, commanded the confidence ol bis party ind ol the Dominion
electorate, to s degree which hsd not
been excelled, il indeed it had ever
been equalled in Oanidjin history.
He declared that tits Conservative
party wsa out to win in Vancouver
and throughout tile country, ind that
there were unmietakeiblo indications
that when the new bouse assorablod s
Conservative government would be in
control at Ottawa and Mr- Bobert J,.
Borden would lie Prime Minister of
The meeting then proceeded lo tho

that the following were elected:

U. S. McDowell sad John Duval.
A campaign committee was tben appointed, consisting ol ten members,
with power to add to tbeir number,
alter which the meeting adjourned.
In acordance with a request ot"
the Board of Ferry Directors made to
him at their last meeting Mr. I Jit a of
the Comty Stock Company wis present at the meeting of the Board which
was held last Thursday afternoon In
the meantime Mr. Latts hid inspected
Ferries Number 8 and 3 with I view to
their converaion to oil burners, but be
was asked to defer making bis report
ami not to give any figures, even tbe
roughest, as the directors were not yet
prepared to hear tbera.
tion of some kind was urged in order
to get tbe harbor cleaned up.
A motion was mails by Mr. Larson
that another letter be written to the
city council urging upon it the immediate necessity of raising further
funds for tbe purchase of I third ferry
bolt. Tbe sum required is abont
*l5il,ililil. The letter is to explain tbo
absolute and immediate necessity of
three ferries.
The mooting wis tben sdjourned.
Mr. F. E. 0. Bery, representing witb
Mr. H. B. Scanlon tbe Westorn Bteam
and Oil Points, was also in attendance
coucerning the same matter ami demonstrated by means of plans and a model
the advantages of the Cyclone Atomizer which is the motbod used by tbe
above firm.
Some time baa elapsed since we met
as a board ami I may be permitted a
brief reference lo some of tbe nutters
that have occupied our attention and
to the matters to cotfe under your no
lice tbis evening. >
It is satisfactory that at length wc

very quickly produce irritation, it Is
pleasing to know also lhal our post

Tbe recent disastrous fire in Mr.
Wallace's shipyard wa* a mailer of
regret to ua ill, both on account of

Nothing further hail been beard

tho city council to be bold on Monday.
Mr. Tuck appeared and asked if be

There were many letters horn tbe

of theee dealt witb tbis matter. It
was bis opinion that a sum ol approximately 933,000 would be to piiml
to rock the streets contemplated.
This would include Lonsdale Irom
the waterfront to Upper Keith road,
and alao portions of Esplanade, First
and Second streets. For plsnking, *

There were three ways in which th*

Helen Dumont waa a peculiar young

was happy.
Her parents, both ol tbeln membera
of tbe molt inclusive set In town,
were long since deceased. She wai
mistress ol her own house, and kept
with ber uu a companion ao aged
Miss Dumont waa a general favorite. Perhaps It waa because the enjoyed life; because, unlike the crowd
around ber, ahe exhausted all that
wss good In eilstanse, and rejected
tbe bad.
She entertained — not lavishly, but
well. On ber reception nights her
home wat crowded, it waa toe one
place where one might go and feel ut
Storme bad never attended any ol
the functions except one large reception. He bad pleaded sonic eicuse
But she prevailed upon bim to attend
tbe last little dinner of tbe season.
He did so. There were two or three
people ihere be knew, but most ol
them he did not know.
The dinner wu about ball over.
People bad begun to talk volubly, aa
they alwaya do, once tbe Ice Is broken
and tbeir appetite baa somewhat abated. Storme aaid but little: b* listened.
"It's absurd"' one man waa earing.
"Tbe police department aay they can't

"Well," volunteered another, 'tlie

under surveillance, and tbay claim
they've narrowed It down to one
man — and tben again, they say that
that's sll tommyrot, that they baven't

"I don't know wbat to make of It,"
remarked a woman, "and I wouldn't
care so much If they'd confine their
depredations to Ilie banks; but tbay
don't. Did any of you hear about Mn.
Uradley-Coatet? Did you, Mr.Btoruic?"
Storme shook hii bead.
"I rarely read tbe papers," be replied with some embaraatment, "aod
I — I really have heard but little
about unythlng ot Interest In tbe cily.
My time It so taken up that I have
but little to give tbe newspapers."
He said this In ao awkward, stilted

Up tn tlte present lime, it has not
. Iwen customary to give any great pro-
iniis'iiiv to the mining rssouroeti ol
the Nnrlh .Shorn, in any enumeration
ol our assets which might lie made.
While it won noted upon all occasions
in general terms that mineral deposits
minimi in our hills, and Ibat a cer
tain iiniimiii of ili'veliipiii.'iii work hail
been done on eluims within a (sw
miles ol Ihe eity boundary, uny reference lo lite poesihilities of the mining
industry on the North Shore havo
been ol meagre length nnd very moderate in tone. This has pi0I111I1!. lieen

in ils early stages, mining it characterized liy the presence ol the s|>eciila
live element to a very great .!,■. 1.
for which ream in |iiu<leiioe ilinl pint a
guarded nitioenon in any assertions
which may Iw made Irom wliut might
be considered official sources.
With reference lo our waterfront 1 'I-
vantages, our tjnther wsilth, om sow-
la ieaturea, our water lunply uud
many other allriiolions and rieoitrccs
of the Norlh Hhore, there has been no
reason for any hut ths most optimistic assertion*, iuusmiicli ns these us-
seta tire ull visihle to the naked eye,
snd their value is altogether undeniable. Min,nil resources, however, lie
entirely lieneatb Ihe surface ol the
earth, excepting of enurse, where ihi!
croppings may ha met with, and the
eiaet nature ol wbil is lo I'l loun'i
at depth is a insltur ol i',inje.,liiie,

The copper cunld be cumenlriiteil at

Delegates from your Hoard seme
time   ago   had   conference   witb
representative* of the Vtiiiniuver
Board of Trade ou the subject
of harbor development, the proposal
put forward by your representatives
was to petition ths Dominion government to appoint a commission of expert* for the following purposes t
I, To ascertain bow far the Canada
Shipping Act needs amendment to give
power to some competent authority to
regulate the shipping traHli' coming to
or from tbe harbor so as to protect
life anil property at sea.
3, To get full statistics regarding
tbe shipping business new coming to
the harbor and tbs proltalde growth of
that business likely to result from developments in view.
:i. To ascertain by esamliiing witnesses and taking evidence apd by ga
tbering data with reference to the present and prospective importance of tbe
port of Vancouver as a Canadian harbor and to outline a comprehensive
scheme for the proper organisation -ml
adequate equipment of the port I u cope
with the demands reasonably assured
ill the near future.
The whole matter was very fully dis-
cnsed. it was shown by the report*
of Montreal Harbor Board that tboir
wharfage dues proper only amounted
to 6 cent* per ton of the shipping tonnage and that Ihe total revenue of
that splendidly equipped harbor from
wharfage, warehouses, elevators, cold
storage, railway, trackage, switching
cars, wharfinger*, etc. was only 1.1,4
cents on the total sbippiug tonnage snd
nearly two thirds of that was paid for
interest on harbor loans. That harbor
ll controlled in tlie public interest by
three commissioners appointed by Ibe
Dominion government and that government bis advanced to them over
♦ i:i,iiini,iiiiii at .'I.U per cent. InLrMl
for dcTolopini'iii  work.
Comparod with this, Vancouver has
the finest natural harbor in the world
deep sea tonnage i* already larger tliau
that of Montreal and ber local tonnage
is close up to Montreal, and in the near
future with the advent ot Hie other
four railway companies, the opening of
the Panama Canal and the diversion of
a vast amount of Ibe wheat traffic lo
this coast that tonnage must be cnor
tnously im reused Vet Vancouver has
mi public harbor, thu shipping thst
comes to. lb:, port ba* tu pay 511 cools
per ton for wharfage only In Hie own
ers of private docks and now of these
docks are well equipped for loading
and unloading vessel*.
Thu opening of the bridge al the
Hocond Narrows, now so fully assured,
will give Vancouver ready access to
the North Hhore where docks can so
easily be coiistrui'led on uiiimpwleil
ground, These au.l other facts and
conflicting interest* all called for con-
sidsratiou of such a commission as we
proposed and we believe thai their
recommendations would have issued
matters at Ottawa. The early con
sideralion of these interests is of the
utmost importance lo us as railway
developments will bu rapid and the
Wor|i of suitably organizing our harbor
can bstter.be carried out in the pub
lie interest before railways . nine than
after they are here and have .speeded
tbeir own money on harbor works.
I am sorry to learn that the delr
gates from tbe Vaneouver Hoard b.v.
nude uo rsport to tbeir Hoard ami
that in consequence we have no assurance ol the cooperation of that Hoard
in an endeavor to get harbor development. Your council do not feel jusli-
And io further pressing for tb. support
of our neighbor*, though we would lik.
to maintain a unity of harbor control.
Along tbs North Hhore we have a seaboard capab). of being wade immense
ly valuabl. for sbippiug purposes ami
there Is uo serious impediment to get
ting a large area of that seaboard
vested in a harbor board wltb a View-
to Iks provision of public dorks and
warehouses to nisei ths growing uesds
of ths harbor. Th. wbol. possibilities
of that undertaking demand our rare

to consider whether than li any need
for representation from this Board. It
certainly should be th. aim Of the representative, from tk. North Bhore to
embrace , tbe opportunity to tho utmost .stent to inform th. commission
regarding North Hhore conditions and
interests, particularly lu view of railway developments.
Considerable disappointment is being felt at the prolonged delay in beginning dredging operations at tbe
First Narrows and you have to consider whether auy further protest
should go to Ottawa.
The proposal to build a railway from
here north through Fort Oeorge to the
Peace Biver country is ons of very far-
reaching importance. None ire so
deeply interested iu ils promotion as
we here in North Vancouver are, hence
none so heartily welcome the gentlemen
wbo have come to tell us about that
projict. I feel certain you will all
support it by any means iu your power.
In conclusion, gentlemen, lei me espress Ihe pleasure Hint I had when I
learned lhat on the Norlh Hhore we
have now a total population of over
ii.iiiiu, including Indian* and summer
residents as well as actual settlers.
This is shout T.'.iMin more then my most
sanguine estimates and It Is nine limes

Will the population be nine times 9,IMH

I was not only present al Hie meet

which is Ihe subject of Ihe present .lis

I shall presently show, although it

1'ipressions uttered by some of the
Mr. Brooke's teller weru better ig

the writer is not a ratepayer and bis
claim as nidi, according lo enquiries I
have made, eeeoi uo nearer the truth
than the remainder of bis letter, yet because of the wrongful impresiou which
might be made by il I wish lo correct
one or two statements.
