of the Kxpress yesterday, Mr. A. 0

lo seek re-election to Die local board
of school truitees, romarkeil that the

tad. "It i* abiolutely neceesary," Mr,

Mr. Perry, at lhe request of his iu
terviewer, then touched un the phenomenal prugress which has been nul ice
able iu tho city's schoul affairs during
lhc lasl Iwu or three years. It appears
tbat in 1010 i Iwu ruumed scbnol was
erected on block 100, D. L. 550, while
iu Ibe same year the building uf the
Nurth Lunsdale school was commenced,
this structure being one uf eight ruums.
Four of these wure occupied hy li;.in
1011—one liy the lmal high schuul and
another by Ihu primary class. In the
fall of 1011 au u.l.litlomil ruum was uc
eupied fur high schuul purposea ami
another one for the primary class.
During the fill uf the same year a
. „inioeu. iin,-ui was nni.le• upuu lhc
erection of the Hidgeway school, and
in connection with this pint of Ine
hoard's work Mr. I'erry paid a glowing
tribute lo the services of bis brother
trustee, Mi James Ilay, chairman uf
lhe building cuminittce. This schuul
was an eight ruumed une and was upeu
ed Kasler uf this year, with sii rooms
occupied. After the lasl summer buli
day* an addiliunal ruom was liruuglil
intu use, and arrangements have been
maiie fur Ihe oue remaining room lo be
occupied after the Christmas holiday*.
The pi'i'seni Central schoul cunsisls of
sii ruums and a email building outside
which the lioanl had abandoned (ipun
t|ie opening of tbe Ridgeway ichool,
but whieh tbey were compelled, through
Ihe influx of ucbqlara t„ reopen at tba
, iiiuiiien. euitiit of the fall term, lt is
anticipated that liy Easter, Iillil, a
temporary canvas class room will havo
lo lie crci;tcil nn Ihe Central school
These facts, figures and dates, as recited hy Mr. Perry, show plainly Ibat
the lioanl's work in keeping pace with
the steadily Increasing schuul papula
liun has been uu sinecure.
In reply to a question as to the nn
ture of the work awaiting tbe future
hoard Mr. i'erry staled thai the para
iiuniiii question iu 101.1 will be Ihe
provision of a new schuol un the site
almul to be purchased. This will have

rooms, ami shuuld he thuruughly mod
eru in every respect. If the present
increase uf schulars conlinues il may
be fuuml necessary lu enlarge the
Hidgeway school by lhe addition of
either a north or a sooth wing.
Speaking upon the geueral sciiool
administration of the past year, Mr.
I'erry referred incidentally lo lhe in
created staff, ami to lhe establishment
uf the first manual training centre in
Nurth yancouver, under the direction
of Mr. Albert Wooldriilge. The board
hopes, as soon as the necessary iccom-
modal inn cau be provided, to augment

At .the regular meeting uf the ferry
directorate yetterday afternoon a letter was received from Mr. 11. H. Stov-
ena, M. p., rogarding the floating debris
menace to which the hoard had called
hit attention. Mr. Stevous intimated.
tbat be had taken this mutter up with
the Marine and Fisheries Deparlmenl.
It is felt by tbe department that very
little iiiui.I be done towards keeping
tbe harbor clear so long us those creat
ipg the nuisance aro allowed to go free.
Certain changes are, however, being
made in the law which may euuhle Hie
government to successfully deal with
toil matter, lu the meantime Mr.
Stevens wished In slate that he had
not lost sight uf the question ami bad
done his utmost with regard tu il. The
letter further stated that considering
the Ireulincnt accorded government uf
licials appointed lo prevent overcrowd
ing on vessels liy the Vuncouver nm
i.nimi.-, the government does not feel
inclined to prosecute any more cases
ami for the same reason caunul luke
uuy immediate action in this connection ami the department suys thul in
view of the recent action iu lhe cases
taken up prusecuting certain vessel
owner* for overcrowding lbat il feels
ilisiiiclibeil lu undertake Tinker prose
..! i.tn at present. In the ovor crowd
ing cases mentioned, lhe governinenl
put men on to watch certain buats and
secured deflnite evidence thul the same
were overcrowded, but the magistrate
accepted the testimony of passengers
who merely stated.." they did not think
the bout was oven-row.lyd " and refus
ed lu accept the testimony of the gov
eminent ollleial who was specially de
tailed lo count the people going uu
buard fur Ihc purpuse uf prusccutiun
in cuit's wbere they were over-crowd
oil. It would only be t waste of money
in the eyes of lbe govcrumcut lu un
derlake prusccutiun, etc., if Ihey are
to be treated with such consideration
as in these cases.
lu lieu of donating the use ut the
special ferry for patrons of the military
bail on Wednesday night to lhc Vic
lorian Order uf Nurses, iu uid uf which
lbe lull was held, lhc buard decided
lo duiiale ?ln.nn tuwards the order,
but tu ili'iiiaml Hie customary payment

Bowser, Held <t Wallhridgc wrote
uutifyiug the board lhal tbey bad heard
frum their ageuls at Ottawa informing
Ihem that these ugenls bad made ap
plication to tbe Department uf Marine
ami Fisheries for one hundred square
feel of foreshore at the citremc outer
end of the strip already granted by tne
crown. Inasmuch as the prcviuus gram
was imi'l. lo thc municipality, the pres
cut application has been made on behalf of Ifae cily.
The letter pointed out, iu couiiection
with obtaiuiug the approval of the
Governor General in Couucil, that ...,s
approval cannot apparontly bo obtained, inasmuch ns the present wharf baa
been constructed ainee Mafeh lit, 1890.
The statute ptpyl0)** thtt It i» *o\l
with reaped to works cuuslructoil befure March, 1899, that approval e*P
be given after the constructor ilself
has.already taken place. It appears
therefore that Ihu only way iu which
this additional structure can ho madu
absolutely safe from interference by
lhe department is by attaining a special act of parliament. Sucb 'action
would, the letter added, only he taken
if the wharf, with its extension, was
found to he interfering with navigation.
The board decided that the secretary
should write to the solicitor as to the
costs of u special act as suggcitcd aud
as to what eitent Ihc ferry company

..December 80, WW.
One of the must valuable suggestion* which has yet been madu relative
to Inducing the Pacific Great Kasteru
Ilailway t'onipiny tu start work on the
Nortli Hhore at an oarly date, was mude
by ,\l.lio umn Irwin at the session of
the city couucil on Monday evening.
The alderman called attention to the
fact that the point within ten miles of
Vaneouver at which the agreement
originally called for a commencement
of railway! construction, would fall
lotncwhere in the vicinity uf Point At
i'ii.:..in.   He further observed that im
the company made It tbu close of tbt
discussion, upon the invitation uf the
President of the hoard, were of I M-
tiire to encourage the belief,that the
head oflice will be found williug lo give
serious and perhaps favorable consider
ation td the rase which the committee
appointed to interview the compauy
will have to present from the stand
poiut of local public interests.
There need lie no hesitancy in af
iiiiinii!: that the hope will lie univers
ally entertained that the attitude of
the cumpany will be found to bo such
as to relieve public sentiment uf any
uncertainty or further amioly with
respect lu this important matter. There
mediately eist of Point Atkinson (and ] ll nu manifest inclination, neither, it
wil Iiiu the hounds of the District of
West Vaneouver) there is a large area
of property which has not ynl linen
-iiiuiu i,leil. One 'properly owner in
this area had recently declared his
willingness to give a railway right-of-
way through liis properly freo of
charge. This promise would tut ft ouo
half mile (of right-of-way, which it is
understood lies uii Ihe proposed route
of the Pinific. iii.-ui Kistcrn, and the
localiou of which is iccep'talile to bolli
the diitrict iiieel the railway compauy.
Following pp the possibilities imii
' iiii'l liy ilm. niiiiii'le upon the pari of
one properly'owner, the suggestion of
Alderman Irwln was to the effect that
an effort shodld be made to n.-.-.-iran.
whether other1 property owners in thai
vicinity would be prepired likewise to
iiouuie uiul .for right of way purposes
(laving discovered wbat amount of
right of wiy could be procured in this
way, it might be fouml of sufHeienl
tent to'justify submitting a proposition
to tho Pacific (ireat Kasteru Ilailway
Coinpuny, to tbe effect that property
owners were prepared to deed the pro
petty for railway purposes, provided tlie
railway company wuubl fouunan.e con
■nu' Hon operitioos in that loellity at
once, iud carry the same on i-ootinii
'iii-lv until the line is completed.
'i'lie suggestion Is of * most prac
licll nature iud could be fulluwcd op
wilh eompiritivoly little trooble or
expense. It is i|uite evident lint tin
prospective high coll of the right of
way along Hie North Hiiore has been
an important factor iu the postpone
ment of construction on the North
iiiioie-. The d.iiiiitiuii of i considerable
portion of Ilul right of wiy would
nii'i" iiibly relieve the hituitiun l.ll
this respect anil wuubl offer benefits to
the railway company in consideration
of whieb tbey might rcasoiiibly be c«
pci'lcl to ■ .ms, ui to begin work, which
sooner or liter must be doue, it a date
somewliit etrlier than the company
might otherwise commence the same
This is a mitter which fairly falls
within the province of lhe Hoard of
Trade, as representing the commercial
interests of lhe entire North Hhore
ami is likewise oue which offers thr
possibility of conferring material bene

ful utility. In the first place the mun

As a second consideration, the munici

Vincouver. Tho pusitiuu then would
be that a person wishing tu go from
any West Vincouver point to Van
