The notice of motion given by Al"
derriiau Fraser st last night'a session
nf tlie city council to apply to the pro
Vilifial legislature for SU amendment
oinpoweriug the council to grant a rebate uf taxes to any industrial concern employing a apeciAed uumber of
men ii oue whuae prugreia will be
watched with considerable intereil by-
many ratepayers.
The mailer of the encouragement of
industries is vital to the prugresi of
the city uml the proviiions of Ihe
Municipal Act i;i this matter are cum
liariome and unwieldy but judging frum
public iliscuiiioni of tbii mailer in the
psst it will probably be found that
opinions are sharply divided aiming
rity ratepsyera as tu whether the ac
liun cunteinpiateil in the notice of mu
tiuu ,nnstiini,s the beat remedy.
As the regulation! stand al preient
It la required that a bylaw he submit
ted tu tbe ratepayeri iu each specific
instance, in which it ia proposed to
grant auy such conceisioni to auy in
duitry. The exereiies uf even thii pri
viiege upon the psrt nf the ratepayer!
is aubject to certain restrictions which
materially curtail their powers in the
premises and a further lufeguerd is
provided iu the fact that a three fifths
jnapiriii vute ia neceuary iu order to
_ ratify   any  iuch   hy law.   When   Ihe
life I   ill   di lull   Of   Ihesc   '.I,ll,n,:•   pi,,'. I
ioui ii coniidered, it ii diicovered that'
while municipal financial assistance to
industries is a possibility under the
preieul Muuicipal Aet, ill pruhability
ul the iame time in any initance ii
very remote.
VVnImui discussing tbe general quei
tiou as lo whether thii ia or ii uot, ai
it should Ire, the effect upou a city
situated as ia North Vancouver ia cer
tainly embaraaaing from an induatrial
poiut of view.
Land valuea within Ibe eity limits
have iid'.nmcl tn aucb a degree that
compliance with the termi of the sa
aeaiment act renders the asseiimt'iit un
pruperty suitable for induatrial sites
very high, ai compared with other t it
iei. iu a.I,Iiinm to thii consideration
there ia the further fact that the all
lence of railway facilitiei increases Iho
freight chsrgei which muit Ire paid Iry
local . imi ust ries. Tbe result ii lhal
thia city ii st s aeriuui diiadvaulage
as ., iimpan .1 with ita cuinpetitori in
seeking to induce industries to estub
I sl, themielvei here and those indus
tries which do establish themselves lo
tally sre bsmlicapped iu Iheir several
iiel'is became of thell iliiadvantagcs
There ii no duubt, (hat if the city
is ever to become a strong industrial
■ cm ii. it will be in-.,; ui i tu find some
means of relieving thii lituation. It
ii true tbat an occasional industry
might be found tu establish ilself lo
• ulli even despite these difficulties, but
ou Ihe olher hand the uumber that
would choose some other locality ru
ther than assume Ibe disadvantages re
ferred lo wuuld prove sufficient to ier
i.iii.lt retard tbia city iu the race for
imloitriai supremacy among the luwer
mainland cities.
The mean! indicated iu the propoied
notice of motion would certainly iim
plify thc method of dealing with appli
niii,ins uf tbia i,at,ire, end would prob
ably lead to uegotiatioui with ipan/
induatrial firms necking a lueal iuu wbo

ci wbicb are at present required It ii
further difficult to understand juit
why tbii particular item ibould be tin
gled out by tbe Municipal Act and

lnl.I from the rily counrlli. Thii mat
ter ii of uu greaJer moment than are
mauy otberi with reepeet to which Hie
couucil ii clothed witb full pow

that the ratepayera who are elected to
the council board arc quits capable of
exercising reasonable powen in tbie
particular alio, with discretion snd to

Iruugest possible obstacle tu the sd
locates uf reciprocity. They contend
that the farmers need the American
market for the western wheal un Iwo
grounds. One is that the Hrilish mar
kcl is lou small, and is insufficient, and
hccuiiiI thul the United States is no
longer un exporting country in wheat
and wheat products but au importing
cuunlry. These llgures sliow on the
contrary that at present uuly uue fifth
uf Greut Britain's wheal is supplied by
fossils and second that the United
Slate, is one of the Dominion's must
important competitors for thc wheal
Irade of Britain ami Camilla's uuly
■i im..-. rival in the Hrilish Hour market.
The conclusion is that there is plenty
of room for thc expansion uf t'auuilian
wheat Irade iu the I'nitsd Kingdom
ami that il is ridiculous for us to ex
pod the rulied Slates lo form a mar
kcl for our grain wiieu it is our great
