Since tbcu a very great deal of good

wiibed both the city and district every

Ihe previous speaker that much crl

There wus something irregular ubout

"I'd rather be a sou of Charles

lu appearance Sidney Dickeus was
ralber insignificant. He was sborl

afler his promotion. He was no greal

Tbu siinultaneuus appeal uf the Vancouver Shipmasters' Association ami
tho Canadian I'aciUc Ilailway Company
tp tho Board of Bailway Commission-
ers against the decision handed duwu
by ilml board during tho sossious .ro
, contly held iu ( Vaueouver, approving
a 'span twu lum.lied feel in width for
the bridge to be built'at Secuud Nar
rows by Burrard Inlet Tunnel and
Undue Company, presents at uny rate
one feature which will prove uf oa
peciul interest to Ibe public uf lhe
North Shore and likewise to tbe thou
sands of nou resident property owners
who are desifous of seeing the bridge
under eunslruclion without further delay, namely thai tbis is tbe first Instance iu which the 0, 1', K. has openly
and actively taken auy part iu th.
prolonged ;i(i iin 11 on and negotiations
whicii have lieen in progress relative
tu a bridge at Second Narrows.
tnbll not yet been made clear vvli
ther In Hie present instance there have
been two separule appeals whieh ure
merely coincident or whether there
has been a joint uppeal upon tbo purt
of the Shipmasters'''"Association and
the C. P. it. Wuatever may be tbe precise fact in this respect, there have
long been those who were of llle opiil
ion tli.li the obstructive tactics eon
litiuniisly adopted by the Vancouver
Shipmasters', Association relating to
the bridge were but the disguised op
orations of tbe 0. I'. ii. ami this latest
.1. ..I.tlii'ni will d"ol.Hi.-, serve tu
confirm that opinion to u considerable
degree and to gain for it credence
among numbers of those who have hi
ii.. ii. been disinclined to credit the
C. I I, with any altitude other tI.T.i,
an indifferent one, as lo the construe
lion of a bridge across llurranl Inlet
at Second Narrows.
lu the light of this latest develop-
ineiil Ihc opposition to Ihc bridge pro
ject assumes a different aspect from
Ihul which it has hitherto presented.
The fad thai in one form or another
persistent opposition to the bridge has
emanated from certain sources lias not
bv uti) moans been lost upon thc friends
uiid the promoters of thc project, but
upon .those previous occasions upon
which lhat opposition has manifested
ilself it hus arisen presumably from
sources which were not credited wilh
uuv experience iu or practical knowledge uf bridge building and which
were, therefore, in all proljehilily not
aware of the seriousness of the situs
lion which would be created relative
lo the bridge, hud Ihc ideas advanced
by them guiiicd Ihe ascendancy.
This latest  appeal, however, places
Ihis opposition in an entirely different
light.   There is no corporation*in ex

excellent reasons for tbo hope that no

The fact has been clearly establish

Those who have clouely followed

would certainly be excused,
The muyur emphasised his belief lhal
ii wouhl be un ucl of discourtesy tu

humiliated tu think uf such a stale uf

To allay my boated temper I tuok a

whore I found the eity hall veiy wull
