QUIET SESSION OF
CITV_FATHERS
Oity   »ml   DUtrict   to   Hold   foist
Meeting Friday Bvaniug Neit
!'■
Tba spirit 0/   unrest,    during ita
r     ceaseless circuit, usually drops in at
the city ball 01) Monday uiglit to coax
[.I  iho councillors into interesting moods
and to generally wrench the proceed-
tj tog! out  of the  rut  of  tranquility.
I »L lut night, however, the   aaid spirit
" ■  evidently Iqtt its bearings; at any ran
it did not enter the city hall portals.
Consequently the conclave was a somewhat desultory one.
Tbe first item of correspondence
which tbe clerk presented for consideration was a letter from Captain
Catea petitioning for nothing more
remarkable. than the clearing of Fell
avenue from Keith road to lfitb
itreet, so tbat he might proceed to
build. Tbe matter wai relegated to
the Board of Works.
Contractor A. B- Oibion theu be
sought twenty more days' suspension
of tbe work on 2nd itreet 00 account
of tbe bad weather.   Granted.
Mr. .1. Sidney lingers wrpto in a tie
acriptlve vain remindful 0/ "The Falls
of padore" of Saturday's heavy rain
which, so it happens, causei the creek
running down Bidgeway to   overflow
E unl meander in Mr. Bogora' baaemenl
lo llii extent of 8 feet of water. The
damage done amounted to ilh and Mr.
Bogers argued tbat certain obstruc
lions ia tbe sliii-li -which bad uot been
removed were responsible for tho be
baviour of the creek- He asked tbe
council to see tbat the creek was
cleared of obstruction! as the next
heavy rainfall would cause tbe samt
trouble to repeat itself.
The city engineer rose modeitlyand
Mid it waa private property that wai
involved.   He did not think tbo coun
cil wai liable.   On tho luggestioo of
I4 Aid.  Henderson   tbo  letter  was  laid
/temporarily aiido in case others of Iho
ume nature ihould be- among tbe correspondence.
Tbere was a communication from F.
T. Salsbury briefly intimating tbat bu
bad secured for Nortb Vancouver the
Tf  1818 convention  of tbe  Arctic  firo
T   therbood.
' Mayor McNeiih expressed bis grati
fication and  Aid. McBae voiced tbe
same feeling on behalf of the council
Jf  paying a   tribute to   Mr. Salsbury'1
1     initiative.
Mr. J. Stepbcu, manager of the Hunk
of British  Nortb  Atucrica,  wrote to
g   tbe effect  that  tbe general  manager
tf   had authorixed tbe granting   of   tbe
J loan of (07,111111 in regard to tbe civic
'     bylaws recently paucd.
;■'        A letter containing a directly anti
thetical purport came from Mr. Alexander Pbilip, representing the   joint
,<ivic advertiaing committee.   It aiked
1     ttl 1 further grant of ihn for the
purcbue of neceuary incidental...
Then   tbe   Horticultural   Society'1
secretary  petitioned  the  council  for
financial aid to tbe oxtont of $390,
a which request wu at once banded over
to the finance committee.
The deputy minister of tbe marine
and  fisheries department at   Ottawa
v   wrote relative to tbe city'i applies
tion for water lota in front of Fell
■ J and Wincb avenuei and Mackay road.
1    Before conceding to tbe   application
tbe department coniidered it neceuary
lhat plana of the loti in quwtion be
forwarded, sworn to by a duly quail-
I   fled land lurveyor.
*]    It wu immediately reiotved that
1   these ftopi be taken.
'      A communication came from tbe lo
.    cal board of trade calling attention
\t 'the  advisability   of   installing    a
' * ■ eighing machine in tbe city.      Tbe
t,   board pronounced tbis to be ao "org
• ' eat necessity' and exhorted tbe conn
ciis'.o take the matter up with tbe
diatrict council.
Tba mayor coniidered tbat though
/they would not be able to get one
thii year, it would be interesting to
get all ■ tbe information poiiiblo on
the aubject. A motion wai carried,
referring It to the finance committee.
/ A recommendation alio came from
f tbe Hate-payers' Asaociation. At a
' meeting of the exeeutive It bad been

' council to iuitruet the treuurer to

lily's expenditure up to and including
November 30th, to bs obtainable not

Aid. Pick thought tbis 1 reasonable

aid. McBae alio coniidered th* nail quoit reasonable, but did the council
think it would do much good! As a
matter of faet the finance committee
intended dealing with tba aubject at
ita next meeting.
Aid. Henderson laid itress on tba
importance 0' tbo publication of inch
a balance iboet on tbe eve of tbe elections "A financial statement of the
kind described, -even if incomplete,
Would be of great service tq tbe ratepayers It would doubtless afford
tbem an mmenia amount 0/ satisfaction if tbey had, in the middle of December, an accurate statement of tbe
city'i expenditure 10 far. Ha WM ip
favor of granting tbe request.
Tbere wu some discussion u to the
precise meaning of au "itemized
statement," the mayor pointing out
tbat if it implied tbe totting forth of
every small detail of expenditure, the
task would be too colossal a one for
tbe treuurer. Jt waa decided, however, after a disiertation from Aid.
Henderson, that tbe balance ibeet
would not need to be prepared on luch
minute lines u tbis. Eventually the
matter wu referred tq the finance committee with a recommendation that
tbo request be granted it found poa

The city clerk intimated tbat Mr. J.
G. Farmer bad returned to bim tho
names of all registered owners to be
placed on tbe 1912 assessment roll
u far u had been ascertained from
tbe books and records in tbe Land Begistry office. The council being uked
to suggest a date for tbe court of re
viiion in January next, fixed upon tbe
tth, and appointed Aid. Pick and Hen
derson to constitute Ibat court.
There followed a seriei of recom
mendationi from tbe city engineer, all
of which were referred to committee.
Firstly, Mr. Hanei recommended a
bylaw for tbe obtaining of 160,000
for itreet clearing and anotber to tbe
amount of #6,000 for the clearing and
grading of lanea.
At thii point Aid. Henderson inter
vend wltb tbe tuggeition tbat tbey
should have an estimate on all tbo
sidewalks and road clearings that tbey
bad been unable to attend to during
tbe year. He thought the engineer
might prepare the lilt tabulated, so
that it might be a guidance to tbeir
suceeiion.
Mr. Hanes tben recommended a bylaw for the. railing of $176,0011 for
waterworki purpoiei, mentioning that
tbey bad not been able to make the
necessary wator main extension this
yeari He further advocated tbe con
•traction of a itorm sewer on St. David'a from the waterfront to Keith
road at an estimated coit of $18,000.
Additional recommendations had relation to unitary sewers with lot connections In tbe following sections of
the city:
Fourth itreet, from Forbes to St,
Andrew'i, at an estimated coit of
HT.,"'"); Fifth itreet from Forbes to
St. Andrew's, at an estimated coit of
$46,000; Sixth itreet from Forbes to
St. Andrew.'!, $46,000; Eighth and
Tonth streets from Lonadale to Bidgeway, $25,000; Eleventh street from
Lonidale to Bidgeway, $22,000; Twelfth
street from Lonadale to St. George's,
$8,500; Thirteenth street from Eighth
to Lonsdale, $8,500; Nineteenth St.
from Fifteenth to Seventeenth streets
$8,000; I.onsdale Ave. from First St.
to the waterfront, $6,000; the total estimated coat being $230,000.
Mr. Hanea further recommended
that a eity dock be coaitructed at tbe
waterfront end of Cbeiterficid avenue
at a coat of $10,000, to be utilized for
the storage of water pipes and municipal articles of every description; tbe
dock to be extended far enough out
to allow steam boats to land at any
tide.
The mayor then made reference to
Aid. Kittion'1 local improvement mo
tion under lection SI of lection 256 of
the Municipal Clauaei Act diacussed at

following recommendations wara invol

SUBSIDIZING OF SECOND
NARROWS BRIDGE
Federal Governraent Approached — Revote
of Original Appropriation and Additional
Subsidy Next Year.
Mr. Wm. McNeill, vice-president of
tha V. W. k Y. Bailway, had an interview on Saturday with Hot). 11. L.
Borden and Hon Frank Cochrane. He
was accompanied by Mr. II. II. Stevens, M.P. and applied for a subsidy
for tbe Second Narrows bridge
It developed in tbo discussion that
it wu very unlikely that any uow subsidies would be provided for at. the
present session. On this accqunt Mr.
McNeiH'i request on behalf of tho Burrard Inlet Bridge and Tunnpl Company
for an increased bridge subsidy was
unfavorably received.
Mr. McNeill!  tben  approached   Ibe
ministers with u request for a revote
of the old appropriution provided for
in Unoriginal V. W. k Y. application
which has lupsod, namely $200,000 for
tbo bridge and $0,400 per mile for tbo
railway for the first hundred miles
nnrlh from Vancouver.
Tlti| proposal was favorably rocoiv
od aod tlr. McNeill was practically
assureil of this revote this sossiou, ami
a favorable consideration for an additional subsidy next session.
.Mr. Cochrane promised Messrs. Stevens and McNeill that he would visit
Vancouver next summer.
Mr. McNeill left for Montreal 011

in Portland last week, where the city'i

North Vancouver, B, 0...
November 81, 1811,
WB8T OAPILANO DIBTEIOT
The fact that the council of the district of North Vancouver has decided
not to present any objoction to the
constitution of a new district out' of
a portion of the municipality as at
present constituted, clearly intimates
that the departure^ is one wh>h has
good  grounds  of justification.
The proposition itself is not uew
in that it has been recognised for
very many years by those who woro
versed in the resources and advan-
ges of the North Shore that It was
destined to undergo a process of par
misusing and repartitlouing into municipalities nf Btnaiier ami smaller territorial area as its resources became
developed to a greater and greater degree
This process actually began wilb Ihe
segregation of a portion of the district and ils Incorporation as tlie yiiuiai-
cipalily of the eity of North Vancouver. Tho proposition which is now
in band for the division of the remaining area is but the second stop ami it
is likely lo be followed by several
othors before all adjustments are made
ami municipal boundaries upon the
Norlb shore bavo reached a permanent
form.
The present proposed division has
been before the ratepayers in an iinolli
i ml way and in a somewhat indefinite
form for approximately two years, but
during tbe put few months it has
lieen reduced to concrete lines by tho
selection of definite boundaries for tho
nail municipality and the circulation
bf a petition among the property own-
on within those boundaries requesting
tbat the described area bo constituted
a icparate municipality,
The fact that the district council
bu decided not lo oppose the petition
makes it pun in nil. certain that .Ihe
petition will bo granted and Ibat the
necossary legislation will be onactcjl
by tho provincial government constituting the new district.
Roughly speaking, the area which
it il proposal lo create into a scpar
ate municipality includes all lhat portion of the present district of North
Vancouver lying west of Capiluno river
although it has not been considered
wiio to attempt lo follow the mean
dering of that stream in defining the
eastern boundary thereof. Tbo new
district contains hIi.hii 20,000 acres,
representing an assesaed valuation of
$2,000,000. The' portion remaining
and lying within tbe altered boundaries of tbe original district contains
46,000 acres, representing an assessed
valuation of $7/100,000.
It will ihus be ucn tbat there is
ample scope for two wealthy and
proaporous districts, while the many advantages which will accrue from the
cloaer attentiou to the needs of the re
sputisc communities which will na
turally follow at the hands of two
councils insteiid of one will redouud
to tbe mutual satisfaction of Ihe pro
perty owners in cacb.

SCIENCE IN AOBIOULTUBB
According to the Farmers' Advocate, just what science haa tn givo
practical agriculture, what it will do
in getting results iu Ihe way of larg
er yiolds, or better quality of crops,
or what if will do towards raising
better live stock or bringing larger
returns for feed consumed nr to sum
il all up what it will do towards
helping out Ibe pay end of the farm
is a problem many farmers are pondering over now, when young men from
nearly every locality have decider] lo
take a scientific course al one or ath.tr
of tho different colleges that havo
openod up or will open in different parts
of the Dominion.
Tho question is not so much, Will
ihe.-e college graduates with a scientific training make a success of actual
farm operations! as What is there iu
this science of agriculture and how
ran it bo adapted and profitably pul
inin practice on the average farmf—
consisting, as tlie science does, of tbe
why and the how of agricultural, natural and chemical processes that up-
cut upon the farm, such as how food
nousishes. animals, why one gives more
nourishment than another, and how
one food will influence Ihe food value
of another, as a study of how plants
obtain their food from the soil, why
certain cultivation 'affects the avail
ability of the food, as to study of the
reproduction of life, of Iho factors
that go lo build up and maintain lbc
qualities or characters in breeds of
animals. But enough has been -aid
to show tbat the science entails the
study of the principles going to moke
the foundation of practical agriculture
Then all true fanners will admit it is
well that somo of our young men are
making a minute study of one or more
branches that make up thii science,
Through than, and Ihem only, directly
or indirectly, a general knowledge of
Iho science musl bo given to the ugri
cultural world- a knowledge suflleieiit
lo enable tbe active farmer to apply
these scientific principles lo average
farm conditions with profit.
There is one point though, wc cannot
overlook. Science can never take the
place of Ihe practical or common sense
part of farm work. A scientist may
work out 'a. perfect ration for fattening a bullock) but it remains for lbc
proclicol farmer, not the scientist, to
feed this steer witb this ration com
pounded by the scientist and make the
feeding a success.
So tbore is p part of agriculture,
call it the practical lldc or wbat you
may, that science cannot fill. It require! years of active work on the
farm to acquire this prartical educe
tion. Science can greatly 'supplement
It to develop more fully tbe posnibil-
Itlei of the farm, but it can never
supplant it. Jt still remains, and always w)|l, for the practical farmer to
make the farm a paying projiosition.
However, we must sooner or later recognize the efficiency of the icionliit
in agricultural problems. He bu already done much for which little ere
dit hu been given. W« bav* a habit
of taking scientific discoveries at of
little moment once we bavo begun ap
plying them te our everyday work;
but me may by following hii work
through tha student, or by th* pram,
«*y*ien on tha farm a** source* of
revenue, aad clou am matt leak. Experience ii already afcawing that to
th* farmer wbo foilowi most cloudy

Aid. Kittson had given estimates.si'
the proposed works amounting to
♦216,320,
Aid. lleiisli'issmi had moved an amendment tbat proceedings in tbe matter
should ho deferred until uext year's
council came iuto oMco.
On a division the voting was equal
on both sides, and the mayor sajd he
would give his casting vote at tbe
next session.
Last night His Worship decided
against Aid. Kittson's motion. Re
expressed himself as desirous aa any
one elsu that North Vaneouver should
have pavements, but he did not feel
justified in supportiug Mr. KitUon's
motion when tbere wero so many
pressing matters to be attended to in
the city.
The fire chief submitted hii eltim-
ed requirements for 1012 at 112,847.
Mr. W. H. Langley of Victoria
wrote in tlie interesti of the .\ortl.
Arm Hridge and Railway company ask
ing the couucil for a resolution of sup
port in relation to tbe bill which is
to be submitted to tbe goveriiinc.it
during this session of tbo Dominion
parliament. "It is tbe intention,'
wroto Mr. Langley, "of those at lliu
back of (In:- enterprise, should this
bill become law, to at once take Hie
necessary steps to carry out tbo cue
siroi iii.n of the works comprised, mure
particularly with respect lo the bridge
aud ibe railway."
The letter further stated that Mr. II.
H. Htevens had been interviewed and
thit ho had announced himself to lm
heartily in accord with tbo project
and the petition fpr the bill itaajf was
to be placed in hia hands to bo patented in the House. As the contemplated worka would ao very materially
affect the interests of North Vancouver
Mr, langley felt that if the council
would paw a strongly-worded resolution supporting the project, it would
bo every helpful. Tbe feasibility of
tbe scheme was beyond all doubt tbe
greatest pains' having been taken iu
its formation.
Aid. Rick said he would like mom information on tbe subject. He considered that it waa a matter upon which
tbe city and district ahould bo at unity.
He proposed that Before this letter
was replied to, the diatrict council be
asked te meet Ibe eity council in tho
eity hall on Friday night. This course
was adopted, it being resolved lhat a
meeting be arranged.
. A tender from Kennedy Brothers lo
tbe amount of $996 for laying a eo-
ment lidewalk in front of the new
theatre on tanedale avenue was ac-
ceptdj subject to the approval of Mr.
W. J. Irwin, wbo is pay inn for the cost
of the work
Aid. Pick then referred lo Ibe recent
flooding of fjons.lale avenue. This had
been due to the district turning the
water from tbe cross streets into
Lonsdale where it overflowed.
Aid.   II.- i is.)   thougbt  it  ihould
brooght to tbe notice of Ihe district
council, il was too bad that they
should get all the surplus water drain
age of the district. He considered that
Ihe district should do something towards repairing the damage.
It was p..mi.'.I out tbat this could
be discussed on Friday night when the
two councils met.
A I.l. Henderson mentioned the dividing of tbe muni, ipali.y. He proposed
that at the joint meeting on Friday tbe
question be discussed of extending the
city' boundaries so as to avoid if
possible a number of separate municipalilies griming up on tbe North
shore, and thus lessening the effect
of municipal concentrated influence.

Aid. McBae then related his and
the mayor's experiences while in Victoria attending the convention of municipalities. It had, said tlio abler-
man, been a very interesting convention, and many useful matters had come
under discussion- The government now
looked to this union as a source from
which to derive suggestions as to the
compiling of miiniiipnl lows. Tho next
convention will take place In Pnytl-
stnke.
The mayor added that ho had noticed during the diieusi|piis,_ that the
recommendations which were most np
plaude.l were nearly sll of tbem overy
day practices in North Vancouver. He
was thoroughly convinced that North
Vancouver was as far advanced as
any municipality there,
Tbe couucil then adjourned.

Tho opiniou of Ihe Winnipeg Tele
grim, one of flic most  powerful    of
Conservative  organs  in  western   Cm
i.la, on the re.euf shuffle of the Hr
tish  cabinet, ia set   forth  aa  follows
under the heading nf "A draw Krror"
The appointment of Winston Spencer Churchill, former Home Secretary,
» the very' important posl of first
Lord of the Admiralty iu the British
Cabinet, will come as a decided shock
to Ibe overseas dominions. It is in
appointment  which  will nol command
Jfc.C,
confidence of thoio oversell Dominions which havo taken ti)t nieaauro of
Winston phurcbill-ani) it is not a
flattoring naturo. Jht now First
f.nrd of the Admiralty has * certain
Nupei'lii'iu! ability; ho il not * broad
plan; Iii) is a representative of the
group pf "ljttlo Bnglanderi who are
not in liurmony with tit* tremendous
sentiment which is confuting tbo ties
of tho empire- Oil selection for a
post which should M filled by the
most capable roan it ii possible to
find in the United Kingdom cannot
fail tn produce a distinct fooling of
disappointment i'l British dominions
everywhere:
A rocont request to the It. O. E. Ii,
from the city council of Vancouver
to heat the cars during the cold weather has boen turned down by tbe
company through a letter to the eily
fathers across the Inlet on Monday
evening. Trunsport.il ion Manager
lloosevelt claims tbe cars of Portland,
Tacoina and Seattlo are not heated,
why Vancouver!
DUEBAB   DIFFICULTIES
The fates seem to be conspiring
against tho durbar. First tbere were
rumors that the King and Queen would
not arrive in person, and many persons consequently changed their plans
about going. Then Scotland Yard and
the India officers became a prey to fours
that some untoward incident might oc
eur, and a general feeling of Uueasi
ness became prevalent.
Everything possible has been dons
to counteract the effect of these reports
luu the public interest iu tbe coming
pageant is relatively small. The c.li
lor of one paper frankly confessed
lhat he is sending a special correspond-
eut to India, not because of any keen
slesiro for descriptive news but as a
method of insurance agaiust the unex
pected.
Two more facts transpired thii week
in connection witb the durbar prepare
lions which are calculated to deprive
it of some if its glory.
Queen Mary, as everybody knowi,
pomcsei a will of her own, and bai put
her foot down in a' manner which is
causing the officials arranging lbc
show no end of trouble.
One of tbe features of tbe celcbra
lion was lo lie a procession of tie
phanls. The elephant procession was
the most conspicuous feature at the
lasl durbar, and it wai fell such a
parade should be an equally distinctive feature at the coming one
Queen Mary 'decidedly objecti lo
riding an elephant. Indeed ihe ii re
purled to have ul.l nothing on earth
could induce her to take part io inch
a'procession. King George'i personal
solicitations, il ii reported, bave been
In vain, and Ibe official! reipomihle for
the arrangcmcnti of Ibe ceremonies are
al Iheir wita' end.
To tbe Indian mind a procession of
elephants is invested wilh more thau a
ceremonial meaning., The most iin
i ..ii.ii i poleulalci muit rido the.big
gcit beasts. At the but durbar the
question of inches in the relative ita-
lure of tbe elephants ridden by J.or.1
Curzon and Ibe Duke of Connaugbt a.
sumed Ihe proportions of a itate centre,
veny.
