"Wbat is yuur view uf the cum-

"We hive unly discussed thc uut

The mayor laid stress ou thc ueed

Mr. A. (1. IVrry then voiced the
opinion that the Central school grounds

source of the trouble being the pro
vision of too muny eiitrunees. Instinct

though! that it was amply sufficient if

Mr. I'erry, "we must luke recourse to

passed iu tccord with Mr. Perry's lirsl
luggestiun, Ihe question of barbed wire
being deferred for a lime, ul any riite.
Mentiuti of the lloyal visit reminded
the bourd of the purl to be played by
lhe children in this notable event. Mr.
I'erry apprised lhe board of the valiant
effort he hud made lo convince the
civic authorities thut the pluee fur.the

had thought otherwise, und lind chosen

Mr. i'erry had then obtained assurance
frum Ihe committee lhal a portiuu of
the park on Ihul duy wuuld be fenced

Thc board then decided thul the

A rccumiiicmluliiiii was made that Ihc

upuu the necessity of having the sung

their chosen route along the wuierfrnni
discussed at lengtbi many of Hie pro
perty owners voicing their opinions on
the   desirability   or  otherwise   of   the

By Laws for $180,000 for Ferry Wharves tnd Boats Meets with Strong
Tbo inali,'I of tbe by-law to be plac
ed before tho people for tho raising
uf $180,000 for wharves ami buals came
up for discussion-
Aid. Irwiu of North Vancouver rose
ami mined than an explanation of tlie
way iu which the mouey obtained if
aucb by law passed is tu be spent, be
givon the people of the district before
proceeding any further. He did not
iee why such information should l>0
withheld and tho council as ferry dire'e-
tors use the money aa they though!
St without first consulting tho rule
payers. Mr. John Teare seconded tiic
motion, whicii was received with up
plause and passed.
Reeve Nelson proceeded to cxpl'iin
tho use to which the money derived
from the by law would be put point:
ing out that lhe council were ubuut lu
buy stock in the Ferry Cumpnuy nnd
called on Cuuncillur Mathers as chuir
mail uf Ihe finance committee to rend
Ibe tiniiii'iul statement of the dislricl.
Mr. Mathers addressed the mooting,
sayiug linn he had expected the Kovvc
tu call uu him and he was glad tn lie
able tu explain his position lo the
people, as he had heard il said that
ie, when seekiug election, had advo
ated wharves for Duiiduravo, and has
now iiuiu1 back ou his promise. He
wished lo say he had not tbe slight,-I
recollection of such platform declaru-
tiou aud would like it understood thni
he was opposed tu the buildiug ul ti
new wbarf at Dundaravc iu Ihc present
state of the finances of the district.
The councillor staled tbat he had uo
axe to griuil and was working sulely
iu the interests ul lhe whole ilistricl
uml uut fur uny particular section. He
considered lhat iu the present stole ul'
Ihe finances there was uut muney tn
spare for wharves at llundurave.
Mr. Mathers weut uu tu say Ihul
frum a persutial point uf view he wuuld
he glad tu see Dunduravc get wharves
as he was tlge owuer uf suinc 700 feet of
waterfrontage, hul he was mil there
fur personal motives, hut tu represent
thc whole district's interests and he iu
tended to* do su ami therefore must
during the present state uf the finances
oppose a wharf al that puiut. Mr. Mu
thers poiuted uut lhat when he as
chairman of Ihc finance committee took
over thc affairs uf thc district he
fuuml that they were saddled wilh un
old debt of $8,000 contracted liy thc j
ilislriet of Nortli Vuncuuver and that
I' iui,- he knew he was iu the box bul:
he was now endeavoring tu gel Ihem!
oul of the box,
I consider, stated Mr. Mathers, Ihul
Ihc people of West  Vancouver should .
b»v* very ipneh larger hpsts as they
b»ye to contend with such dangerous
waters us those of the nurruws and
consider that $60,000 would havo to he
provided fqr lauding. Ho thought iluu
fwo bo»ts posting 'rom $76,000 to
$100,000 each would be required and
th«t they be built to carry :lml passengers each.
The reovo asked if auytJno would like
to ask any quest inc.; w|jicl| Uqupcillhl
Mathers would gladly answer.    '
Aid. Irwiu asked why $76,0011 had
been used for roads which wore not
necessary ami some of this mutiny npt'
expended on ferries.
Coun. Mathers: "Wo considered Ibo
iiiiiiiiini niinltcd to ferries sufficient."
Mr. Aleunder asked permission to
speak and stated he was advocating
tho uxpouilituro of $10,000 on Dundar
ave wharf. I beg to say that I was
uever in favor of the float now there
ami ou which $11,000 was unpen,led l>y
the N, V. council."
Mr. Irwin asked why the membein
of the cuuucil when seeking election at
the begiuniug of thc year did nut nute
they were opposed to wharves al Duu
. Coun. Mathers: "I repcut I never promised whurves at Duudurauv'
Councillors Uintzburgcr, Hay anil
Merrick were called tu the platform tu
express their views un whirl nnd pjr
chase of new steamers and were que*
tioacd at length chiefly liy Aid. Irwiu.
Mr. Irwin moved a resolution to the
effect that tho cuuncll postpone their
action in submitting the bylaw and ou
a show of hands the motion was ln«l
20 to 24.
Mr. Llddle spoke briefly on the quo-
tion of a tuuuel across lhe narrows
:.iiuiiii: that hu had been informed Ihul
it would be u comparatively easy mill
Mi .lulni l.nwsou was also in favur
of a tunnel.
The question of the ferry compuii.'

Tb* above photograph of llic Dominion Match Company'! hul planl speaks (or ilself. The factory it served direct hy the C. P. R., Greal Northern and B. C. Electric, therefore is unequalled for Iraniporlalioo facilities.
Tlie Brunclt Rivet, which can he seen, serves as a logging pond. Who can doubt bul what ihii company will be a greal success and make money year afler year for those who have the courage lo back their convictions
wilh a lillle money? Ul lliese fads convince you lhal lhe Dominion Mali It Company, Limited, often an investment lhat is really worlh while: Canada consumes over S catload* of matches per day. Today Canuda
is importing malches from Japan and Sweden, nolwillislanding a duly of 25 per cent., which is equal lo $1.00 pei acre. The oeaiesl match factory in Canada is Hull, in the Province of Quebec. Eddy ol Ilull has
made a fortune for himself and associates from llic in uml,u iuu ul matches, and yet lhe system used by him calls foi while cork pine at.$90 per ihousund feel, and a great deal of hand labor. The system uied by llic
Dominion Malch Company calls (or aider, liasswood, collonwood, oi any wood lhal will veneer or ahsoib paralfmc. The cosl is about $5 per thousand. This system of machinery alto saves 50 pet eenl. of lhe hand
labor. In brief, ihc Dominion Mulch Company has about $600 a carload lhe advantage o( any other manufacture in Canada. Ihc Company can make over $1,400 net profit per carload. The factory has a capacity
of one car per day, therefore, counting 300 work days, il cao earn about $420,000 per annum, which is equal lo 42 pei eenl. on $1,000,1)00, which is lhe capitalization of lhe company. Does this nol sound good?
Would you nol like lo have some of your money invested in an industry ilmi is nol effected hy crop failure or panics? This is, youi oppoilunily. What are you going to do with it) Stand back aod doubt and say, as
90 per ceul. ol lhe people do, I don'l believe il will ever amouol In anything and then wake up lo lhe fad lhal you have lost oul? The company is officered by men you know and can It ml, men lhal stand high in
their own community. There will lie no enormous salaries paid lo lhe officer*, nor no freezing oul of small stockholders. Remember, you arc buying inlo lhe parent company, and investori will share in 50 per cent, ol
the three olher plants which will be established io ihc eastern provinces. Come to our hraoch office, where we have one of our wonderful mulch culling machines working. Come and lei our salesmen show you ihc
icpoils of lhe enormous dividends being paid by olher malch concerns. No mailer what your neighbor (who is undoubtedly a knocker, anyway) may say, come and investigate for yourself. The factory will jic
running and turning oul matches in aboul 90 days. Russell Sage ijuoled: lo make unities you must do so on your owo judgment. The man who hesitates either has lo pay * premium lo lhe man who does ad or he loses
lhe opportunity (or ever.   Don'l lei ihis'be yuur rase.   If our salesmen call on you give (hem a lew momenls o( your lime.   They might make you some money.    You don'l h*ve lo invesl.    Use pom oun judgment.
