The net result
of tfae
recent negotia
tions with the Dominion Government,
with reference to voting a subsidy in
lavor of llurrurd Inlet T.unne| ond
Bridge Company, toward tbe coat ol
constructing Second Narrow, bridge,
il to be gathered perhaps by inloronce
rather than by direot stu'omoiit, from
tho reports submitted by the dolegutos
to the respective bodies which they represented.
Tho one fuel thul atandi oul clearly
and iiiiiuisiiihenlil; in Iho reporla ia
to the effect that ua soon ui llie Burrard inlet Tunnel und Bridge Company has arrived ut u basis of ugrei.-
iiient with the V, W. Jl Y. Railway
Company, us to Iho, consideration lo
be grantud the latter company, the
subsidy appropriation will be entered
in Ihe supplcmcnlary eilimulcs, in lu-
vor of the former company. On Ihe
face of it, thia appears to be practically Ihe same position in which Ilic
matter alixxl at the conclusion ol tic-
gotiutiona at Ottaw/i in Fdiruury ol
last your. In summing up the sit tin
tion at that lime, The Eipress ol
March 4th, 1010 aaid editorially;
"il 'lues not require any exceptional
powers ol insight to diiccro tfae intention of the Railway Committee, namely, that thoie two companies, one
owning a luderul subsidy fur a bridge,
und the other owning exclusively Ibe
right to build the only sort ol bridge
that the committee upproved, ihould
conler together and arrive ut u baiii
ol co-operation iuch oi would render
the lubiidy uvuilable (or Ihe bridge
that Ihe people need. Nol only is
'lis the courtc iiiunislukcuhly indicated by the uction of the committee, but
il ii likewise tbc indliod of prooulurc
that was lime and aguin spucifieully
impressed upon tbe interest ml purties
by iiiiliii.itiiil members of' both sidei
of the house, ui living the course Ihut
it wai expected would he followed.
"It muy therefore Ik anticipated
that negotiations looking to such un
arrangement between 1I10 two conipun-
i.'., will lw instituted ul an curly dute
Ths sue..-.slid conclusion of audi ne
gotistions would ut once unite the federal and tho provindul mbirdic. in
aid of Ihe bridge, uud would uiiiure
not only the conitruction ol u ntugni-
laviii railway and IrafHc bridge, but
bk..wis. the i iiiniiii in elm ni of operations wilbin a lew modi In' lime."
While at first sight (bia would up
|«-ui to accurately reprosenl tfae situation aa il atandi today, nevorlhelesi
at elos. i view it lieoomos evident that
there sre certain lestures in wfaidi
tlie siliiiiin.n hus materially .-hang
ed in lavor ol Burrard Inlet Tunnel
and Bridge Company. Iu Ihe Oral
place it i. not now a laot that there
is a compsny "owning a fodsrsl tub-
tidy" lor a bridge at Second Narrows
inasmuch aa tbt subsidy vote in lavor
ol lb. V. W. k Y. Railway Comjiaoy

of fsilure upon the psrl of that compsny to bsgiu qcluel conitruction at

But tins is only tbe btginning. It
ia lurthtr, a lair iafsrtnce Iron) Ull reports wfai* havs Imni wtwriHtd to
oomUkU list tbs (sinister ot railwsyt
bus recognized that Burrard Inlet
Tunnel and Bridge Company baa prior,
ity ol right to the Dominion subsidy.
Ths plain significance ol this is that
ths V. W. Ik V. railway has tarn'riJa-
placed by Burrard Inlet Tunnel (nd
Bridge Company   as ths   prospective
owner ol ths Dominion subsidy and
that when lb» subsidy vole js passed
it will bo passed in favor of Use
Meantime there is only ona consideration which stands in the way of tha
immediate entry of the name of Burrard Inlet Tunnel and Bridge Company in tbe aiipplumontury estimates
to ths amount of this subsidy, namely the reaching ol a decision as lo
the concession wfaidi shall be made
the V. W. k Y, Railway Company in
view ol the (act thai in the issuing oi
the subsidy to ths other company the
V. W. k Y. will Anally relinquish not
only all hope of securing any government assistance toward a bridge at
this point but will also be forestalled
in tlie right to build a bridge there at
ull inasmuch as the minister of railways has staled that only one bridge
can be allowed at .Second Narrows
and that mtiat be a combined railway
and traffic bridge.
There remains one further obstruction which may arise, namely, the negotiations between the two companies
may result in a deadlock, the V. W.
k Y. Railway Company demanding
more than Burrard Inlet Tunnel and
Bridge Company is prepared to grant.
Although the reports have not even
suggested what would transpire
should sudi a lituation develop, it follows aa a reasonable deduction from
lho entire situation, thut the breaking of the deudlock would depend sole-
ly upon the ability ol Burrard Inlet
Tunnel und Bridge Compuny to convince the miniiter ol ruilwuyi that
liny had offered the V. W. and Y.
Ruilwuy Coiiipuiiy u fair und reasonable conaideration, but that the aamo
had not been accepted. Whether
thore exists any understanding either
tacit or explicit a. to wliut thc minister would e, ut ni, let u roaaonahle consideration, is known perliups to only
the immediate memliera ol ibo com-
p.inie.i moat nearly concerned, or if
known by others, it could not lie divulged wjthout prejudicing lite successful progress ol negotiations, und ia,
therefore <|uit« properly suppressed,
.Should Ilic uliove lumming up ol the
situation Ik upproximutely correct, it
ia .-wili-iii thut the happy solution ol
litis whole problem ia not fur removed Irom tlie present.
There ia ut any rate, one fundamental   proposition   which   may  he  laid
down   aa   touching   tbe   question   ol
trading at home,   with    relcronoe   to
which uli who truly wish to promote
tin interest* of tfae homo   town   will
entirely agree.     Thut propoailiou   ia
thia, namely, when, prociaely the mute
article can be bought at home lor precisely the same price al whidi it cun
be bought out ol   lawn,   thul   article
should bo bought ut home.  Thii plain
rule, the juilice ol which ii patent to
ull, will diipoic ut once uud upon,  a
satisfactory buiii, of u very lurge proportion of locul truding.    In thii connection,   however,   the  position   has
been taken throughout thi. aerie.   "I
niini.-s, Ihut it ia not fair  in  comparing prices, (hut   the  locul    atorue
should be expected  to  compote,   with
largo ilepurtinentiil concerns, aa   coin-
purod with which the local merchant
ia inevitably at a heavy disadvantage
lor reasons whidi have  already  been
submitted.   Tho comparison should lie
made with out ol town stores ol   Ihe
lumc grade ns tbe local stores,   and
when ibis ii done, it i. sale to say
that local price, will compare  lavor-
alily   with   respect   to  a   very   wide
range of  articles,   will)   those  which
csn  be  obtained  daewhere.    II  tbt
large departmental catablidiment it to
be   accepted   aa a sale   criterion by
means ol which lo judgo prices,   and
il trading i. to be placed accordingly,
then it ii evident  that  Ibe  ultimate
result  would foe  that all  merchants
trading ou a smaller Kale and catering to a .action ol the public in sny
city, would be crowded out ol bonnes,
and tbe public would be delivered into
the   hund.   ol ths big departmental
concerns, a contingency   fraught  with
such grave results tbat no thougfalful
person will entertain it lor a moment.
Outside of tbo merchandise referred
to in the abovs rule, there liea a great
volume of trading, relative  to  wfaidi
the conditions are sucb as to create a
persistent tendency to   wander  afield
It goes without saying that there is u
certain amount of trading which must
be dona elsewhere because Um   local
morket bai not yet developed  to an
extent sufficient lo  justify  our  local
merchant, ua stocking tbs lines involv-
Aa a lurlier mnsjatosiloB witb res-
Beet to prices snd good., it will n 1
doubt ba found in ths ordinary court i
ol stopping Ibst tfasrs set some Unci
in wbich t|ai price, ol tonal merchants
mny be aontewbst in advance oi out-
ol-town priest and likewiao some instances in whioh the shopper m»y not
be able lo procure at local stores tbt
exact article required, lint jn order to
trade at home may find it necessury
to accept a similar article which will
servo the purpose. Incidents such as
these are to be expected in the ordinary course ol home shopping. Now,
throughout this trndo-ut-hoino series
of articles, it has boon tht endeavor,
while frankly admitting that some disadvantages may have to be assumed
in order to trade at bona, yet to
ahow that there fere much wider issue 1 involved in thin problem, to promote whioh, the looal resident could
well afford to assume ths slight advantages at times involved and by
that menus, continually place the
largest possible amount of money in
circulation in the home town.
In point ol laot, is it not just hers
that the test of true loyalty to horns
interests is spplisd? It is not intended to advocate tbat looal residents
should assume any disadvantages ol
an extreme or unreasonable nature in
order to trade at boms, but is it not
a fact that the one who is enthusiastic in hia attachment to his Inline
town, will be lound willing to assume
at least a certain amount of disadvantage, if necessary, in order to promote,
tfae welfare of liis town? 'Ilia man
who boosts lor his own town so long
as he is called upon to assume no per-
aonal inconvenience, but who suddenly
subsides when some locul difficulties
develop, is at best a very doubtful
quantity in locul progress, but it is
thc man who (lands staunchly by bis
home town even when he is placed at
diiadvunlngii iu some particulai
by so ,!,,!,,, it ia lite man who atunda
the tost—who ii truly loyal und who
become! a atrong factor in local prosperity and progress.
In the matter of trading ut home
tfae difficulty should not lie lound in
iududng residents to patronize homo
merchants but the difficulty—ond a
vory Iprmidnblo difficulty-should be
lound conlronting those who would
induce them to trade awoy Irom home
