ROUTE MAP OF CP.R. ON NORTH SHORE
i
COQUITLAM
The ubove map purports to be uu exact copy of tho route map submitted
by the Hun idiun I".■. ■ j■ - Hallway to ihe
Minister of. Hallways for his approval
as Ihe general route of that railway
for their new brunch line along the
Norlh Shore. The engineer's depart-
monl of Ihe 0. P. H. nl Vuiicoiiver
declines lo verify Ihe map saying that
il did not emanate from that source.
Ho fur us the local department is cun
eorncd Ihey know that preliminary
.surveys  have  been  etimpleled  at  fur
wisi, us Seymour Indian reserve and a
rough sketch of thai survey has been
mude, but n<^.Jt||yjj[ljjil(ft"7r"auy further operations is in their possession,
The route map whieh waa submitted
to Ihe Minister of Hallway! evidently
emanated from lhe Montreal oflires of
lhe t!. P. II Several copies of this
map were sent west to ollieiul bodies,
Midi us'the city council nnd the din
Iriet council, anil these copies Were
duly signed hy the ollieialg of the railway company.    Al the same lime, My.
orajtorivato citizens auccoodoil in pro-
curiii(R(«iiics of the map of which the
above iitwiofjujavliun. The map tallies closely wilh the official copies
received by the public bodies referred
lo and may therefore be accepted as
uu accurate representation of the map
laid before lhe minister. Its main
lines likowise conform to the' lines be
ing laid down by tbe U, P. II. survey
parlies according to the opinion of lo
nl citizens who have gone over lbc
ground and have carefully followed the
surveyor's stakeB.
In gauging the ruute from the ubove
map, it should lie home in mind thut
the scule Is a Wry small one, namely
one mile to the inch and that u hnsly
glance may lend lo wrong impressions.
While the routo appears lo follow the
waterfront very closely, in reality the
line iH shewn at a uniform distance of
three or four hundred feel buck from
the waterfront. In two instances,
namely in the vicinity of the uioulh
of I.inn und Seymour creeks aud in
I lhe vicinity of tbo mouth of Ihe Capilano river, il moves buck fully ono
milu from  Ihe waterfront. At     three
'points after crossing North Arm the
lino actually touches the wuterfroiil,
iii'iio'lv ut Moodyville, al u,point iu I).
1.. 208, immediately west of Ihe oity
I boundary und ut u point  on   Knglisli
'Hay iu II. I,. 855, evidently ut ur aboul
■ llumluravc.
i It is impossible frum u general map
of lhe mu.in uf the above, to locale
the route with reference to details. In
**ILewy*7*
usinuch us the uet gives n right of deviation for dllll fool on eilher side of
the centre line, it is very dilllcull to
tell just where Ihe line will be located
wilh reference lo any subdivisions or
blocks nnd it is likewise impossible to
tell whether, in certain instance! the
line will utilize roads or streets' or
whether il will follow u sepurule right
uf way. These particulars wil| be oh-
luiniilile only ufler the locution map
has lieen drawn from liual surveys
and liled showing details of the route.

GOVERNMENT'S RAILWAY POLICY
Subsidy for Peace River Road via North
Vancouver, Howe Sound and Pemberton—
Agreement Already Made with Foley, Welch
h Stewart—-Second Narrows Bridge Part
v   of Scheme	
Victoria, Feb. 20, 1912.
"Principal item of Government's Railway policy ilus after-
"nooii will be guarantee of bonds for $35,000 a mile lo Foley,
"Welch and Stewart for line from Norlh Vancouver via Howe
"Sound and Pemberton, lo Fori George, looking lo ultimate ex-
"tension to Peace Biver connection of Vancouver by Second
"Narrows Bridge.   The terms of the contract lo be die same
"as in the case of the Canadian Northern Railway.    Also Canadian Northern bonds to be guaranteed for a line of railway
"from Kamloops to Vernon and for lhe extension of the Bark-
"Icy Sound line to Slralhcona Parl£ • Arrangements arc like-
"wise contemplated by lhe bill for lhe extension of the Canadian   Pacific" Railway on  Vancouver   island   norlh as far
"as Comox.   Provision is made for lhe repurchase from lhe
"Columbia and Western railvyay of one million dollars worth
"of land al forty cenls per acre.    Finally, the Kaslo and Slocan
"railway for many yea,rs in disuse, is to be repaired and operated."
The above forecast of the new railway bill which Premier
McBride will introduce this aflernoon in the house at Victoria is
provided the Express from lhe mosl authentic sources and may
be accepted as accurate and correct.    Tlie significance of the terms
of the bill as to tlie benefits accruing therefrom (o Nord) Vanrouver
cannot well be exaggerated.   In fad lhe bill throws wide the gateway that leads to the realization of the most sanguine anticipations
which have been entertained or expressed by those who have al
all limes taken the most optimistic new of the future of the North
Shore,    Immediate and ultimate benefits of the most gratifying
nature may confidently be expected to follow die enactment of
this government measure.

North Vancouvor Vanquished ou Bat
urday       ♦>
After enduring two successive de
feuls at the bands of North Vancouver
team, Vancouver on Saturday made
uu effective eleventh hour spurt and
chastised their visitors to the tune o(
I goals lo nil. The North Vancou.
ver players were collectively off color
and while the llrsl bulf of the game was
like the curate's egg. the second was
manifestly   one   sided.   Tbn t   lhe
four goals were scored during the bit

handsome presentation cup
action of Ihe week was the decision
of the private bills committee in wip
ing out wilh one stroke the labors of
Ibe Vancouver council for some monl lis
past to establish a satisfactory form of
modified civic government. From the
way in which the committee couched
its decision it would appear more
like-a year's postponement than un
utter rejection. Their stand was that
the matter had nol been thoroughly
digested, that they would consider it
further, thai if il w'as good for oun
munlrlpalily it should be for olhers,
ami if they decided thai the principle
was sound iu another year it nt ghi
be adupled iii the Municipal Clauses
Ad. Thi1 only troublf nbout tlrir

Of course it it still possible thai
some of the work of the committee
may be revised by Ibe legislature

Ihis is hardly likely to be done to un;

U<jta Ui|utt|j|i, anilalUiuiigli llm1 went
haa not been ii spectacular one, a great
many bills have been atlvsncpd, through
various stages. The big forestry bill
is not yet through committee, hut ns
only a few leettom remain, the end is
well in iiight. There are at preeent
CD bills on the order paper, 11 of whicii
are government measures, 10 are private bills and there are two public
bills In thu hands uf privute members. Of these Iho great majority are
at cominitluo, report anil third read
Ing stage, sn that with night sittings
this ('.'vi., Ihey should be rupidly wiped
off lhe i-lnle, aud the wuy mude clear
fnr the estimates, budget uud railway
policy. Al) these will occupy approx
imately about two weeks more, and I hen
the members can say "Home again."
The largest deputation to interview
the government during lhe pusl tvnel,
was the one from the 11. ('. Local Up
lion League. They did not ask ful
lo. nl option in a prohibitive so mueli
aa in a restrictive sense. They consid
erod that in some places Ihere were
loo many licences and Ihey shoulil be
reduced, Thoy also asked for u re
strietiou of open hours for burs lo
from 6 a.m. tu II a.m. Their viowi
were well presented by Mr. II. II
Cairns, tho president of the league
The Premier's reply, though ciiitche.l
in grueei'iil uud conciliatory language
left Ihem no room lo hope Ihul uny
ii.ii.: of ii local option mil ure even on
the moderate seule they asked for
would be enacted this year. Hut he
did show that their representation!-
had borne good fruit in the more
stringent enforcement of existing lints
und further evidence of this wus giv
en when ou the following duy Allot
ney (ieneral Bowser brought down
amendments to his liquor acl, strength
cuing its already item provisions, uml
hedging the intenlicted persou with
greater security from temptation than
has enjoyed in lbe pust.
A lurge number of bills of eu amend
iug nnt ure have been brought donn
luring the week. A few of these may
be of interest, and are here briefly
upilulutcil.
Hon, Mr. Hots' amendment to the
land ml provides for lhe appointment
if preemption inspectors with gener
ul powers; for power to resorte\
lauds where there is a dispute lie
tween two applicants for it; and lo
classify as first class lands any Ibal
may be considered til for agriculture.
Ilis amendment tu the water acl to
give the government power in appro
priate mineral springs; lo lower bodies
of water, and to order mi|icriloii nil
repairs of any dams in the province
Ilis uiucuiliiicnt to the cuul ami pel
roleum acl deals chiefly wilh surveys,
bdt it alsu gives the right to the gov
eminent to renew a licence where il
hag been elloweil lo lapse through in
advertence. The governmeut may ulso
survey coal lumls uml charge the tost
ugainst the owner. The attorney gen
eral lias redeemed his promise lu mu
nicipalitiaa uuder the uiuuuipal .hi*
sei ail, to validate any sewerage ami
waterworks Ihey have undertaken dur
ing lhe pust yeur. Tin!- was in ail e
necessary owing lo a mistake in the
revision of-the aet a year ago, whMi
an amendment lo give municipalise,
power to do this work without a ol
per cent, petition was by mistalte
,'i.siis i oil lhe wrong section in Ihe
bill.

Tin' utility of clergymen who possess
some hubby of line craftsmanship unjust been shown practically ut Brock
near London, where un altar ami n
pulpil have been carved for ibe Roman
Catholic church by four priests of Ihe
Assumption!*! order.
The client lo which su. b u possession
of li.Imi,al skill by iiuliviilunl .Iiii' -
Jilts served uiul is still serving lo dcro
rule churches throughout England i-
inlicaleil by an "ecclesiastical arli-l
nf exceptional experience," who tell.
the Standard huw clergymen often use
their artistic  knowledge in  this wuy.
"Due of ilie lust examples of
ile vol cil craftsmanship thai I know,"
he says, "is the work of Si. Stephen's
Ilu III There within In years, you hate
Inul un ecclesiastic of great culture,
possessed of a very individual lusle in
tci'liuiijuc, spending every kind of> iirl
islie ford bought in wull decoration
The rare process of lbc mosaic whieh
was inact by him in lbc walls of the
chancel would never huve been adoplcd
by u professional decorator. It needed
.' patience, a choice, and an aiilii|Uuriui>
knowledge, which would naturally
lielnng ruthcr lo an artistic ecclesiastic
than to an ecclesiastic artist.
"At Chipstead, Surrey, one cm se.1
a stained glass window which owes ils
whole existence to the then incumbent.
The technical work and construction in
thut church wub entirely done by Bev,
I't'lcr Auborlin about Ihe year I(t51.
"Indeed, clerical craftsmanship goes
on very tjuit'tly iu many of the English
churches and adds beauty to their
fabrics. Tbe pity of it is that clergy
mt'ii of a decorative hobby of this
valuable kind have not often lhe
capital whieh will aid Ihem lo indulge
if? A mosaic is not al all a cheap
thing to cxisl. The Roman Catholic
..clergy in Englaud, loo, exhibit liieir
practical faculties in Ibis pleasant way.
Al Forest Gale, in Ihe Ensl End,
a Roman Catholic priest has filled his
church wilh mosaic ol bis own construction. In the various orders of

ami their talent is never suppressed,

might be termed 'schools' of lechiiical

PROVINCIAL BAILWAY OHAETEBS
The recent decision nf the provincial governmeut not to consider any
further applications for estension of
time under railway charters will meet
with general approval.
The number of prlyate companies
holding railway  charters which  have
failed to comply with the terms of
their charter aB to commencement of
construction operations has been vory
large hitherto iu proportion to the
number of charters issued. The practice of couipaniustw defaulting with
respect to the time clause has been to
make application for extension of
time under their charter by means of
a private bill, thus keeping their
charter in undisputed force and effect.
Two such instances came before the
house last week. In both Instances
the private bills were rejected, but
provision was made for reasonable
treatment of these particular companies
by means of an amendment to the
provincial railway acl.
The government however, took occasion to announce thai in future no
'■Hsll applications will he considered.
II, n.i innl. such proceedings must be
carried on under the Jtailway Act.
That is, if a company holding a rail
- 'way charter fails to comply with tbe
lerins of its charter with respect to
the time clauses, ils charier lapses and
in order tp retain possession of its
privileges it will lie necessary for such
1 a company to reorganize and to apply
for a now charter under the Ilailway
Act, iu which event any other com
i .ha has of course, au eipial right to
apply for a charter covering Ihe same
mute.
Uuder lhe obi method, a railway
nimpaiiy might succeed in holding pus
session of valuable railway privileges
fur an Indefinite period without any intention of actually const nut ing or op
erating any line of railway, but for the
sole purpose of monopolizing certain
rights and privileges until sui-TT liiiie
as the owners were able to make u
profitable sale of Iheir charier. The
provincial railway act is credited by
Ihoso most familiar wiih its workings
.'. ill. having done a great deal lo
slop this speculation in railway char
t.rs and there is certainly good ground
I., conclude that the procedure now
laid down by lhe government will prac
11, ally abolish that unjustifiable prac
ine, as for provincial charters.
The move is one which will ter
taiuly accomplish a great deal for the
protection of public interests in the
matter of railway privileges. Any
company which procures a charter wit It
l,ui.a fide intentions In build and up
cruto u ruilway and which carries
I hose intentions into effect at the car
l„st possible date, becomes an import
ant factor in the development of the
province and is worthy of every en
,uiiragemcnl. On Ihe other hand lhe
proi urii»!< of « railway charter by a
Miinpaiiy whose real purpose is to hold
ll,e same fur purposes of sale only is
un attempt to exploit the public for
personal gain. II is wrong in principle
un.I harmful iu practice and its abso
Inle abolishment not only iu provincial
• irilee, bul throughout the entire Do
nmiion will mark a distinct forward
step ili legislation iu the interests of
Ihe people.
TUB BIOHTS OF THB INDIAN
There is nn organization in Hrilish
Columbia known as "Friends of the
Ji,slump" which has been making itself
particularly active with reference to
agitating for the protection of the
Indian population in the rights which
this society alleges belong to the In
dian with reference to the reserves
which have been set aside for their
occupancy throughout the province,
and )n otber respects.
Tbe representatives of this organize
lion, recently had an interview with
l'remier Mcllride during wbicb tbey
slated their position with reference
i., ibe Indian and his rights. Tbe reply of the premier made it perfectly
clear lhat it was the intention of tbe
government lo exercise every precaution
lo sec that the Indians of tbe province
are given every fair consideration but
(hat it wu not tlie intention in pro
i.'culing that policy to sacrifice any of
Ih* rights of the white race which
owu tb* province.
It is set for a moment to be doubt
ed tbat tb* .people of Hrilish Columbia
tmite tint tin aboriginal population
iball he treated witb absolute fairness
and with broad liberality in all re
spouts, but there is no evidence Hint
they are in favor of accepting for
guidance any far fetched theories or
any purely sentimental collaborations
in this matter. Any reasonable and sane
interpretation of the rights of the In
diau wuulil meet with hearty accept
unco at the hands of the citizenship
hut any strained construction of the
situation to make in their favor would
meet witb prompt rejection.
The Indians held undisputed posses
sion of this land fur many centuries
previous to the arrival of the white
man. During all Ihuse centuries tbey
utterly failed to develop to any poreep
tihlu degree its magnificent latent re
sources. Notwithstanding his uni|ues
tinned sway, the best the Indian could"
do was to perpetuate tbe existence of
the country as a howling wilderness
As some one has said, the utmost
efforts of the Indian succeeded only
in extWtiug iu the presence af fat
ulous resources from tbe forests i
canoe, from she earth a flint and from
his i.mi.nu,.lm." ■ ;i picturesque form of
speech. Under i i... - conditions it was
as necessary as il wbs Inevitable that
the possession of ilu.. n, I, heritage
should in due time pass fitim the pus
session of those who had |ihiven ut
terly incapable in themselves »/ ils
development and that it should Nji
come the possession of a race wb
would develop its latent possibilities
in the interests of mankind.
The only respcei, therefore, in which
the coming of the white man clashed
with the rights of the Indian was wilh
reference to that which the Indian had
proven himself capable of procuring
out of Iiis surroundings, such as the
right to procure food and raiment, Ilu
right to roam through the jund, the
right lo ajplura to pitch his lent, and
to a place to bury bis dead. In any
particular in which lhe coming of tin
white man interfered with such privil
•■;•."■ bs tlw Indian actually exercised
it was incumbent upon the Caucasian
lo give a fair equivalent to tbe Aluir
iginal. It would be utterly fantastic
however to hold that the white man
should account lo the Indian for thai
which the while man alonu by his in
genuiiy and industry was able tu cause
the country to yield. It is likewise
very difficult lo perceive in what man
ner the Indian is justly entitled tu any
claim upon llic benefits which hate re
suited exclusively frum the efforts of
the white man since his arrival in the
country. Notwithstanding the won
derful strides of progress which have
been made, the country were yet a
howling wilderness had il been left
to the will and the devices of the In
dian.
Broadly speaking, il is Incumbent up
ou the Caucasian to provide the Indian
with the nearest possible equivalent
to what the country would have been
worth to lhe Indian, had be remained
iu undisputed possession.
An effort lo accomplish Ihis purpose
must however be prosecuted iu bar
inony with certain fundamental facts
such as: 1—The changed conditions
must necessarily affect the character
of the equivalent which is available
lo the Indians; 2—Tho equivalent
must be uf such a nature as to adapt
itself to modem progress and to pre
vent the Indian from impeding the
development o' tbe rountry according
to the methods of modern civiliia
tion; .1—The equivalent should be de
signed as far as possible to protect tbe
Indian from bis proven tendency to
acquire the vires of the Caucasian
while rejecting his virtues.
Auy argument thai would lead In
Ihe conclusion lhat tho Indians have
"a |,iiiiiin.,iiiil title to evety square foot
of land in British Columbia, which
tbey bave not formally ceeded to tho
crown" is, aa the Victoria Colonist re
marks, preposterous. The' expediency
of having recourse to tbe court* for a
decision upon questions which may be
mooted bet wbicb must find aome means
of adapting thcuiselvos to tbe practical requirements of tho onward march
of development is more than doubtful.
The practical importance of tbe quo*
tion as to whether the reversionary
rights in the reserve* shall belong to
the Dominion or th* provincial
government, is at lust but a negligible
quantity with relation to tb* rights
of'the Indian.
While tjher* doubtless exists every
disposition to place a most liberal con-
itructioe on tb* question of the rights
Of the Indian, those rights must nevertheless find mesne of adapting themselves in inch a way t'o the demands
that may arise, tbat tbey shull not
cnnatituta.au.ubatructinn-to tha pru
grew and thu development of tbe pro-'
Vince or nt any rnniiiiunily therein ill
any particular.

The Inquisitive Juror stared a moment, then subsided. Dr. De Bre*n

Thus slnga Wilfred Cainphell iu tho

his pen, ami the second from that of
I'rof. Oeorge, Bryce of Multiloba t-ol
lege (Musson Book Co.). It might have
been a wiser course .hail Mr. Campbell
confined his introduction tu tlio somewhat irregular verse 'from which w»
have quoted, rather than given us the
twenty pages of scolding about tin

who says: "Of the Scotsman of In

After reading such a sonlcnre one
instinctively turns lo the lung lisl of
aide and distinguished Scottish divines.
scientists, artists, professors, teachers,
lawyers, ami even statesmen, of today,
wonders why their names and Iheir
fame are unknown to Mr. Campbell
Yet this very race which lhe author
thinks hus now fallen su lew is, in his
opinion, "one of the thjoe of four greul
kindred races reaching Innk Id Nouh
and Ibe Deluge," uml that from "the
ancient Kingdom of Argyll there Ibiweil
out u civilization that influenced the
culture and ethics of all Kuropc,"
When Mr. Campbell comes tu deal with
"The Scotsman in fuiiadu," und has
10 narrate the cold fads of history as
found in Government und oilier records
the reader misses  lhe Celtic  i yi
and the glamor lhe ,,.   threw intn
his earlier works. The records so care
fully,, on the whole, aud so laboriously
liruuglil together in Ihis volume and
put within the reach ,i ull Canadians
will become invaluable os llic years
go by. In tho chapters dealing more
extlucively with Hcolsmeii in Canada,
Mr. Campbell is in his happiest vein.
11 is noticeable that the biographical
sketches of Hcolsmeii, many uf whom
are still living iu Canada or Britain,
and many others whose ijeuths are uf
comparatively recent dale, all seem I.
contradict Die whole tenor of the intro
ductory chapters. The volumo wil
live, and will be welcomed because of
its very many valuable features, and
for Hie careful compilation nmi re
search thul. its publication represents,
"It is the great man who points out
the way, but facile and palii ul follow
ers alsu no doubt work fur humanity."
The anlhor of this paragraph, I'rof
Bryce, has already given to tho world
sovo/al, excellent volumes on Canadian
affairs, so Dial the reader lakes up the
second volume of "The Scotsman iu
Canada," expecting very interesting
reading and is not disappointed. It is
perhaps-an error of arrangement Dial
I'rof. Bryce as well as Mr. Csmnhsll
had lo write rather long introductions
dealing wilh prehistoric as well as wilh
historic Hcollaiid. The aulhors, how
ver, deal with the subject from such
differing standpoints that there are but
fow repetitions, lu this volume I'rof.
Bryce deals largely wilh the Hcola-
man in Manitoba, Alberta, HusliatchV
wan, British Columbia ami the Torri
loin's, while Mr. Campbell's vnluine is
practically confined to Nova Hcotia,
i'rinco Edward Island, New Brunswick,
Quebec and Ontario.
Beginning with tbe advent of tbe
Orkney man in Prince Itupert's Land,
Professor Bryce traces the Scotsman's
trials and romantic story iu Canada's
great west lands and tel|s how bis influence sbkped and moulded the des
tinies of the Dominion. ,The biographies, a* far a* known of these venturesome Scotsmen, who came to the
West largely In tbe early yeara as

Conlrary lo the usual pfaclire lhe Assessment Notices for
1912 have been sent lo the registered owners of -property
according lo llic Land Registry records.
Up to the present, purchasers have been in lhe habit of
notifying lhe rily authorities lhal llic properly had changed hands
so lliul notices of assessment and taxation should nol go astray.
7 his form of registration of owners has heretofore been deemed
sufficient for city purposes, but owing to a recent decision- the
cily council is advised by ils solicitors to recognise these owners
only who appear on the records of lhe Land Registry Office.
Unfortunately a great many never register their deeds or agreements.
The North Vancouver I .and and Improvement Company
has received numerous assessment notices for 1912 for property
which it has sold and which has since changed hands two or three
limes.
Hie.Company, therefore, desires to notify persons who have
purchased from it that they should lake steps to ensure notices
of assessment and taxation being sent to them so that ilny may become aw"Blfe of the value al which they are being assessed and

address asking his sympathy uml in
torcsls In tlm olijocts of tliot body.
"It is scarcely necessary to remind
your lioyal Highness," stated the address, "that the. principle of universal military service Is still contaiimil
in thu militia act of Canada, ready ti)
ho palled into operation by your order
iu Council, but, us uo provision is
ui/iile for training or preparation, il
would be an inliiiiniin act lo arm a
largo aggregation of niofi w|m' ure
without training or iliscipline, and send
Hirin forth undor mpdern conditions
to active service, Tho Canadian lie-
fencu i.i .''i'ii,- is anxious that training
should be provided, so thut if uny
emergency should arise thoro will Iw
no tpiestioii us to our ability us a
uation lo ii|cet it. This will, we
lioliove, secure for this part of the
world a lusting peace."

Health uml d||cij)ltno are necessary fur

McDougall Jenkins, Engineers, Ud.,
eouiplained of being most seriously in

excavating for the sewers. The firm
has in band at the moment contract

This involves lbc receipt daily of several load* of raw material and lhe firm

\skew, Kennedy k I'o. asked for the
op. ning up of 2,'lrd slrect frnm Lons
dull' uvenue to Bidgeway avenue in
tn » of Ibeir intention Jn build on luls
ing up at Ilit itre»t liep Malum *wn
blocks weat to give access to tbeir
home*. Both requests wore referred tp
the.Board of Vfntkt.
AAA. Dick was surprised tbet there
wus no communication from the O. p.
P. with reference to the aubway on
the Vancouver side. He had noticed in
the papers that Mr. rulers, the usst.
vice-president of the O. P. K., had been
in Vancouver for the last two or three
days, and .(hat the subway question
was one of the reasons of hia visit. It
was strange that the council had heard
nothing from bim if that wub the
case, Vancouver' bad played quite a
secondary part in the matter. It was
Nortb Vancouver that had brought it
before tbe railway commissioners and
pushed It in overy way. Why wae
North Vancouvor being left outt Some
thing ought to he done about thia.
Aid. Irwin asked if the committeo
appointed in this connection could uot
get tho necessary information!
Aid. Dick contended that the mat
ter should have boen placed before
the council and not in the newspapers
Aid, Irwin suggested writing to Mr.
Peters expressing desire for an inter
view- «,
It was eventually settled that Hit
committee should take the matter up
and see what could be done
Tenders wero then considered for the
sinking of the sewer on 1st street be
twecn St. Patrick's and Bt. David'a
Four companies tendered, theso being
Leiliiighiim &- Cooper, $8,058; Kennedy
llros., $7590; Thompson k Stuart
$5489.60. and J. Shumm, $8,434. The
lender of Thompson and Stewart was
accepted
The parks committee reronimended
that lend, ra be called for the opening
up of Jones avenue to the military line
and that the equipment and poles of
the wireless station be removed on the
expiration of the contract. Aid. Fore
man stated lhat he understood the
contract had already lapsed
The water committee recommended
that the district municipality be bill
ed for $9 per house iu settlement for
water supplied to 176 houses in Lynn
Valley ami 40 houses in Tl. h. 66.1.
II was suggested that should tin
municipality fail to mail this bill the
water be shut off. Aid. Foreman quea
tinned whether the lowest rate should
be imposed under Ibe circumstances.
Aid. Irwin did nut consider the
charge loo low. II was certainly th
in in nn inn rale charged in the city. He
thought thut the city and district should
deal wit h one auotiier in a considerate
manner
The rcpurt uf the finance committee
lu the .llii I that deeds should be obtained for all property expropriated by
tbe city or at present in the possession
of the rity, was adopted.
The fire and light committee recommended that tenders be called for the
supplying of a motor .chemical combination hose wagon lo Ihe local depart
ment. Thai tenders must be in the
builds of the city clerk by March ISth
II wus decided to mention in lhe noli
Hcation tu lenders the rough roads and
grades of the city
Aid. Irwin said the committee had
entertained tlm idea of ordering two
engines, but had decided to wail a little while before getting a second. Omul any rate should be procured before
the advent of the dry season,
Aid. Foreman, the chairman of the
Wasting Committee, merely had to re
port thai tbey had taken up the que*
lion of blasting with the chief of
police, who would see Ihul lhe blasting
bylaw was carried out
The question of a local bathing
beach was then introduced and briefly
touched upon.
Aid, Dick considered that it wai a
matter whioh shwld be tokm up »'
onoe U..they.int«aei.hMii»gJUl»tk
ing beaelf for the coming season.
Aid. Irwin thougbt it jiit going to
mean p considerable expense as dressing rooms end other conveniences would
havu tp bo supplied.
Aid. Foremen dirt not favor the proposition at all unless they could get
» ItMl.at the Ipeatjoe |n question.
The acting -major thought tho matter ahould ho taken up at any rate.
Bis Worship had also been deputed
by the forry board to inquire as to
the feasibility of getting tho cars
further down to the wharf. The
question was relegated to tho Hoard
of Work*.
The acting-mayor further inquired
as to fim advisability, pf Ruing a date
for the forthcoming juini meeting of
municipalities  ill  Nurth   Vancouver.
Aid. Irwin suggested that if there Is
time available after the disposal of tho
go* franchise at the special meeting
they might discuss tho mat tors to lie
brought before tho conference—matters
of joint inlerest to tho municipalities.
Mr. Clark of 18th and Williams, addressed the council in person on tho
necessity of access to hia house by
sidewalk. His-past troubles in this
ounection had culminated recently in
his family having fallen iuto a ditch
The council promised tho matter at
tention and referred the request to the
Board of Works.
Aid. Irwin sought information as to
the accuracy of the rumor that the
0. P. B. bad already done a mile of
grading on the north shore anil had
got part of their property fenced In
The acting mayor said ho had no
official information in this connection

ncssed a film of unusual pathos and
appeal. "The Mission Father" as an

necessary and one was introduced lo
a screamingly funny bunch of people
who sought to pulverize the gambling
