H. H. Stevens, M.P. on Local Problems
Larson's pavilion was on Tuesday
nigbt tbo scene of a well attended meeting of ratepayers aud residents of tills
city, the raiBon d'etro of the evenf being tho presence in North Vancouver
uf Mr. H. H. Slovens, M.P. Aftor an
informal dinner in his honor at tbo Hotel Nurth Vancuuver, the member and
his hosts adjourned ut eight o'clock to
the pavilion, where a large audience
convened under the auspices of tbe
Hoard of Trudc, was already ussemblcd.
The president of the Board, Mr. Alexander Smith. Willi only a few prefatory remarks, called upon Mr. Btevcns,
whu, speaking without notes, dwelt ex
haustivcly aud convincingly ou most
matters at present affecting tbu North
'I am delighted," said Mr. Stevens,
^'to have this opportunity of Booting
lbc citizens of North Vancouver uuder
the auspices of the Hoard of Trade and
of discussing with yuu a fow of the
questions which are uf particular inter
est ou Ihis side uf the Inlet.   I sliull
nul attempt tu gu into auy elaborate
details regarding all lhe problems of
the moment,   Such a purpose could not
. be limited tu one night.   I shall cot
Inn myself to auch questions iu whic
I you are very particularly interested. I
noticed that one pf the papers suid
il. ii I was tu give un nccouut of my
itcwardship. That wus scarcely thc
wuy lu express il. I am uut here tu
apologise for any action 1 bave taken
*X% few uf my zealous friends have seen
III fo criticize my attitude mure or less
■laverely. When Ihey hear the explun
I aliens I think they will agree with uir
that what I have done bas beVu in tho
iuteresls of tbe community.
'Let  uie  lirst   (.mi.mne   North
Vancouver ou its development. Our
9k ing the few months 1 have been away
I notice marked changes and very rapid
development uu Ihis side of thc lulel,
lu all places in the cast which I have
visited I have heard expressiuus of
1 'iii in Vancuuver, nieauiug uf course
the lower mainland and there have
beeu gluwing tributes tu this shore
of the Inlet.
"The interesl of North Vuncouver
In my estimation is wruppci^.up iu the
interests uf the whole district. I be
lievc that it is a mistake fur auy one
section of Hrilish Columbia or of tbis
diatrict which we term Greater Vancouver to be jealous of thc other part. I
lay dowu Ihis as oue of lhe guiding
j priueipl « iu all my arlion*, that wc
must be unanimous in the interests uf
the whole district. Anything which
develops the province must delevop
Greater Vancouver. Anything which
affects the south side of the lulct advantageously musl ussist you here, and
vice versa. Wc want lo cultivate 11
kind uf esprit de corps. There is just
a little too much tendency tu look ufler
number uue and ip many cases a lack
of public spirit! 1 wisb it tu be uu
dersluud that I am not finding faull
kith my coustitucuts. Mauy uf you
In ■'■ bave tuude fortunes. There islets
ft room for   everybody.    It Is   alung
Fouch lines that I have tried tu work at
Duo of the questions of burning in
lei. -i to the people of North Vancou
ver Is thc railway question. I think one
olrhfuiost rehiarkolde things in Ihe
history of Canada Is that Norlh Vun
' .couvcr should have grown up to this ex
lent without any railway connections.
This it 000 of lbc reasons why I ad
vocated additional subscriptions lo
thc Second Narrows bridge project. Jt
certainly, however, would not be wife
for this city in the light of the export-
ifuco of Vancouvor and other cilift to
givo away all its public privileges for
thc sake of getting its railways a lit-
I tic more speedily than it would get
them otherwise. '
"Beforo leaving hero in January i
r. 1 eivid adviro ilml tho C. ,P li, had
application  to havo ihe route
I map approved. This map whirl) the 0,
P. tt. filed was tot a- route to come
from thii side of Fort Moody to an
ndeioile point about half way between
Ete Md Point Atkinson. I asked fur
rther information in thii connection
ut. could get none. I aJao received
^oio thit district certain communita
I tbo d/«tributii)g and delivery of your
,oni from public bodies." Mr. Slovens
Iiii point »«ad aloud Uw letters ro
"l think you will agree witb IHO," be
continued "that there werp pqt suU(-
cieut grounds on which to approve of
that routo map. It should bo borne ip
mind that tho ('. P. P. would havo
complete control qf your foreshore from
somewhere near Point Atkinson to Port
Moody. There wus no provision for
street ends. Yuu would bo iu exactly
thu same position aa the people are iu
Vancouver today. This wus because
their 'route map was approved by t|io
1 imu in government. Undoubtedly the
ruilvvuy t'ommissiou would havo giveu
the city crossings, but these would have
had tu he maintained by tbe city. Nut
only would tbo (.'. P. K. have had this
minimi, but it would also have control,
freight along the waterfront.
"Another point uf grave iqipurtance
is that the ruute map of the 0. I'. R
shows the rood to bo un a level lower
than the approach of the Second Nor
rows bridge. If this map had been approved and the bridge was 40 feet
higher than the ('. P. II 's. grade, the
cuinpany wuuld have said it was a phy
sical Impossibility to connect. I con
tend that the C. p. H. shuuhl provide for
"Another matter is this—that iu or
tier tbut the harbor commission should
be a success it is necessary that every
foot of waterfront should bo under the
control of the coiiimissiuii. If tbat
bunrd bus in connection with its organ-
.■mum a railway system, the C. P. B.
shuuhl be compelled to connect with
thut system Thul is the most Import
ant point in my estimation. The great-
est difficulty ii'in.v iu connection with
harbor development iu Vancouver is
thc position occupied by the C, P. II.
They own Iwo (birds of the foreshore
iu False Creek, from Coal llurbor to
tho II. T. P. whurf. They own ami
control the greater part of thc revenue'
producing section of tbe waterfront.
And the first question a harbor com
mission should ask itself is 'Where is
thc revenue coming fronit' Why dupb
cute this situatiou ou the North Shorel
Uow is the question to be answered!
"I usked Sir Thomas Shaughucssy
whether the 0. P. li. would be willing
to co-operate with the harbor rom
iiiis.-ion. ami ho said quite frankly thai
Ihe cuinpany wuulil nql. 'Wc bavo the
strategic pusilipu,' he said. I am not
blaming them ur in any wuy attacking
tbo C. P. K. Tbis is simply lhe rosull
of the' policy Ihey laid down thirty
years ago."
Mr. Stevens proceeded tu summarise
the proceedings which attended thc vis
il of Major McNeish anil Heevc May
to Ottawa. "Subsequent tu this," he
suid. "I  went  lu Montreal tu consult

That tho present forry directorate
is resolutely determined to safeguard
to the very fullest extent tlie livos of
passengers on tbo boats under iti' control was emphatically demonstrated at
the board's regular meeting yesterday-
afternoon. Mr. H. 0. Wright ini™
dm e.1 the important topic witb a refer'
ence to tho Atlantic disaster which hat
recently- appalled tbe entiro civilisod
world. He considered that iu the light
of such a cninmiiy as this, it behooved
a board such as themselves, since tbey
were daily responsible for tbo safoty of
a groat number of lives, to adppt an
even better system than tboy bad to
day. "I think,' 'said Mr. Wright,
"thut wc might to see to it that each
boat is equipped witb sufficient apparatus to save thc lives of overyonc on
Capt. fates, while concurring iu this
pointed uut that tbie boats carried four
life rafts over and above what the
guvernment calls for. "They arc not
loo many,' 'added tbe captain. "Tbe
point < I mean is tbat tbo government
1 annot hold us responsible so loug us
we comply with regulations."
Mr. Wright thought they ahould not
only Consider, wbat the regulations demanded, but that tbey should heed
what Iheir own coiumonscnec dictated.
Mining.'I Heard iuformed the board
that while tbe boat; were expected to
curry four life boots,'they carried five.
Number .'I ferry carried eight life
rafts, each constructed Ip carry a lou
.lead weight.   Kncli life preserver would
uimn moved lhat tbe inana'gor be iu
nirueieii lo muke all the life saving
precautions that aro possible o» the
boats; also tbat he bo autborUei] to
get eight more life rat In, four for each
boat. This motion, duly seconded,
waa carried unanimously.
. A letter emanated from Solicitor B.
Ii. Ueld on tho subject of tbo recent Le
Due action, "ln this case," wrote Mr.
Held, "the whole facts as given by
Mr. Lo Due and Mr. Heard wore put
bofore tho court. I was of tbe opinion
thut the facts so proven did not const!-,
inle li case of action against ilm company and moved for a nou-suit whiph
was refusod. It was useless to call
further evidence, as tho facts which 1
could prove ou the defeuco bad been
proven on behalf of thc plaintiff . Tbe
verdict of the. jury as it gives tbe plaintiff tbo value of the horses necessarily means that the course of uction on
whicii you have boon condemned was tbo
nmi cln.'sinj: of the gates, and 1 am of
tho opinion that tbis is quite properly
a caso which should Ire appealed to thc
court of appeal."
Iu viow of this the board resolved
that thc solicitor should go ahead witli
the proceeding! relative to the appeal.
On Mr. Rcid's suggestion it was ulso
decided that a letter should be written to thc Imperial Oil Company on
Ibe subject of connecting thc ferry
company's pipe with tbe pipe line of
tbo oil company ou tbe Vancouver
wharf for a period uf ten years.
Manager Heard suggested tbat iu
case uf lire un the boats he should have
in-ialled an electric hell in the engine

North Vancouvar, B. 0.,
...April 86, 1012
All well-informed citixons of tbo
North Shore wbo wore present at tho
meeting called by the Board of Trade
ou Tueadhy eveuing, to listen to the
address of H. 11. Stevens, M.P., wore
greatly surprisod when, the intimation
was made that there still lingered in
certain quarters, a disinclination tu accord acceptance tu the fad that Hur
rani Inlet Tunnel aud Bridge Company is u corporation, owned ami controlled by the respective municipalities
whicii have become stockholders iq the
company. The local public have long
since arrived at au accurate uu
demanding of Iho situation and arc
well uware of thc fact that there is nothing whatever iu that situutioii which
is in auy way irreconcilable wilh the
fact lhat Hurrard Inlet Tunnel and
Bridge Compauy is a municipally owned company iu tbe strictest souse of
the term. The fuel that ilm provision
ul bourd of directors is still in ollice,
creates uo uncertainty ur cunfusiou in
the in i in I uf any well informed citizen
in this regard, it is well understood
that certain private citizens were suf
lieieully enterprising tu take hold uf
iho proposition lo givo their time "und
attention and to put up their own
money iu order to secure the incorpora-
lion of Hurrard lulet Tunucl ami Hridge
Company iu the initial stages uf the
movement, when it wuuld have been
impossible to secure concerted action for
the purpose upun the part of the muni
cipalities. Frum tbe very inception of
Ihe proceedings^ these gentlemen pub
liely declared lhat they were undertaking the matter, not as a private cuter
prise, but in the public interests. I'pnli
almost every suitable occasion Ihey
have openly declared iu the must un
mislakeahle language lhat they are act
ing as trustees for the public aud farther that Ihey would be fuuud quite
willing to relinquish their positions on
the Board jut! as soon as the munici
I .■■ lis uiude it pouible for ibem to do
so. The local public likewise fully ap
preeiate the fact that Ihey have lhe
public spirit, and lhe ability of the
members ol the provisional board tu,
Ihaiik for the fart that the affairs of
Hurrard Inlet Tunnel and Bridge Com
pany have been conducted in u manner
which bus scored conspicuous success,
ull along lhe line and that Ihe whole
intricate problem has been solved in
nil its phases This, hat not been ac-
compliibed in u-duy, neither has i been
nil flam sailing. The pruposillou was be
set with many difficulties and develop
ed many delicate situations, lo lueel
whiih required persistence, paticucc,
lime arid ability The provisional buard
mis splendidly responded to all the
requirement!, ut all times, and
so    signally     successful    hat     imu
ie' -traiion     pm vi 0     that    everv
detail of thc entire problem
Is.." been worked out lo a point at
which is all lhal it lefl lo accomplish
is lo m'core Ihe small remaining pur
tion uf the large aum of money that
will be required for actual construe
the provisional hoard remains in olhco
should not at all confuse the mutter in
lbe mind of members of Parliament,
because uu ordinary working familiarity with the llui I wuy Act itself, will
fully explain jusl why Ihis is the cue.
The Railway Act provides that in uo
cine shull Iho provisional bourd of ili
rectors of any company or any member
of that buin,I, be allowed lo relire from
ollice until twenty-five per cent, of tin'
capital stock of the company has boon
subscribed ami paid up, Now, uilbuiigii
live or six municipalities huve passed
the ■ necessury bylaws and have sill'-
scribed for shares iu Horrard Inlet Tun
nel uml Bridge Company, there has
nni vet been actually paid into the
treasury of the compauy a sum of money
equal lo twenty five per cent, of thc
capital stock I hereof. Until this in
• lone, it would not .be possible, under
lhe Bailway Act, for the members ol'
the provisional board lo retire.
But even were the wuy clear for the
appointment of u board of direetots,
composed of representatives of the re
speetive municipalilies, which ure shure
bidders in the company, the udvisul/fl
ily of making any extensive change in
the bourd iu charge of Ihe company's
iiiiuii just ut this juncture, would call
for vory serious consideration, before
uny such steps were taken. The mem
hers of lhe present buard are fully
conversant wilh evory minute detail uf
the affairs uf Ihe Company, frum the
lirst hour when the incorporation of
Horrard Inlet Tunnel and Bridge ('om
pany was proposed down to the pres
out. II is ouly reasonable to conclude
thut a new board whose members were
to a great extent ignorant of those mat
lers, could not hope to give an admin
islratiou, so advantageous to the inter
cols to be served as would be given by
those who have been iu charge from
the beginning.
Added tu tins, the constitutiuii of u
bourd composed of members of the
several councils, might break that con
tiuuity of representation ami of policy which is essential at the present
lime lo the consummation of the work
already accomplished, inasmuch as such

the ppraoniict pf the Board nqt necessary in order to establish |>eyond question tlie actuality qf public ownership
tnd control of Burrard Inlet Tunnel
and Bridge Company, but the probabilities are to ■■ inin," as to amount In

Nortl) Vancouver Shooting Affray Oaso
Heard in Vancouver
Jesse Whitfield, a colored man, wns
found guilty iu tbo assise court, Vancouvor, yesterday of blowing up the
shack of ' 'li'iide Halo, another colored
man, at North Vancouver, witb intent
in do him iirieiuiiii bodily barm. The
ei idence showed that on tbe morning
of March U5, an oxplosion occurred in
a small house occupied by Halo at tbo
corner of Chesterfield avdnuo und -Ith
atreet. Suspicion fell upuu WhitHeld,
v. im was said to have made throats
aud to be jealous of Hale. The police
went straight lo Whitllold's house and
saw someone running across Ine sidewalk and into the bush that they ho
lioved to be Whitllold. He was after
wards placed under arrust, and to
Chief of,Police Davies he mude u statement to the effect that he hud placed
Ilie powder which had blown up Hale's
shack, but he hud not meant to hurl
him. He only wished to give him "a
good scare."
It further developed that Halo was
Inul up with a broken leg at the time,
and u colored girl staying with the
Whilliclds used lo go to his shack to
clean up uml cook for bim, Mra. Whit
field would go duwn with her, ami it
appeured lhat Whitfield became jealous
uud resolved to put a stop lo il. He
placed his powder and fuse accordingly
ami about one o'clock iu the morning
it exploded. It tore up the lloor of
the shack, uml lhe rucks blown up frum
uiiderneulh wore lodged iu the ceiling,
bul llulc wus untouched.
Whillicld had no counsel, nor. did nr
have any definite statement lo make
iu his owu defence. Aa he was uuruprc-
scntcd, Mr. A. I). Tuylor, K.O., erown
prosecutor, did nut address thc jury
against bim, while Mr. Justice llrcgury
ulso protected his interests iu eiaui
No sooner wus Whitfield found guilty
and rcmandeil fur trial till the cud uf
the assizes, than anulhcr Nurlh Van
couvcr case wus called. It was that of
David llreenwood, charged with shoot
ing with intent to kill Marcus tlrogum
in a shuck on Muhon avenue an Junu
ary 11.
As developed from thc evidence il
seemed that Greenwood, ttrogum aud a
young iiiiiii uiiiiilii Lung hud been
driukiug together in the shack that
night. Just how thc, shooting occur
red was not very definite, but lute at
night lbc police were culled ami (Iru
gum was found lying on Ihe lluor with
a bullet wound in his neck. He charged
(irccnwooil with the shooting. Dr.
McManc, whu waa called, stated that
jl was a wonder lhat tlrogum escaped
with hia life, aa the woond wus near
Ihe jugular vein and aiming a network
of arteries.

thereon, a building to bo used as a
municipal ball for at least
Ihroo years, after which tbe property
becomes the possession of tbo district
for auy public purposes for which it
may be required.
In making the motion to tbo above
effect Councillor Mathers stated thai
the council felt that in thu various sites
submitted, they had beon privileged to
choose between the vory best sites
whicii the district afforded. In selecting the sito decided upon, the coun

years the council would be iu a position
to decide more satisfactorily upon the
permanent site for the municipal ecu
In submitting the resolution Beeve
Nelson stated thai the couucil had traversed the district before choosiug the
site. Tbey had visited every site offered ami had given tbo matter most
careful consideration. While he had
nut agreed with the docisiou of thc
committee, ho bowed willingly to the
opinion of the majority of thc council.
A minium.nn. vote of thanks was
pussed to all who had submitted sites
for the cunsiilcratiou of the council, lu
connection with whicii tho reeve remarked that the ratepayers who had
offered sites free, had set a striking
example to those property owners who
wished to make the district pay the
last dollar fur each piece of proporty
which might be required for roadways
or for other muiiicipll purposes.
