When the time camo for i In- c|ly
council lo give Ha atlenliou in the
I'uiiiiiililii'i, i-onni'i'li'il Willi IliO scwrul
bylawi which ire ahurlly to be tub
milled lu thu eleelnrnlii, Mayor Mc
Neiah allied list livening thai In hid
been wumlerltig whether it would mil
niiei all be advisable to plicu Ihese
In- luws before the people it uleclioti
lime instead of neit month, teeing that
il only meant I difference uf a fow
weekt.
Aid. I '.ii i uuin said that he had been
thinking on the saute lines ami lie be
lievod that il would be policy to liy
the bylaws over until lbe time uf
the election. They always gul u bet
ler expression of public upiuiiin al
audi a time—butler than Ihey would
gel by ruabing lbe hy-luwa through at
the end uf the year. Tiiere was uuly
abuut ait weuka mure uf the cuuncll
year lu elapse now. If Iho city put
them i.iiuiiid now il wus probable
that only about leu or fifteen per pant.
of the people would ciime out and
vote.
Aid. Fruser, however, mentioned lhat
it   was essential  thai  the .... I I  by
law shuuld be passed at .an earlier
date as the buard would wish to submit
uiiiiilin I.-. I.iv. for the school liiiililing
at abuut electiou time. 'I'lie board
would n»l be in a position to 1I0
Ihis unless the first school sile by law
was passed. Thm was one by law
which should uul be lefl uver until
.In ium time.
Aid.  Frascr also  Ihuughl   Hut   the
ridge by law shuuld be dealt with at
au earlier dlle.
A Id. Mcllai) pniuted out that It waa
legally possible tu submit Iwo school
by-laws at lhe ume lime.
Abl. Irwin ugreed with tlie mayor
that It was | pity to submit the bylaws in December jutt about I monlli
prior to the election.
The mayor mentioned l lml tl)e people
would support a ichool bylaw it iny
time. Ho did uot tvtr remember a
school by law being turned down in
the province.
Aid. Irwin later agreed that Hie
bridge bylaw wis important, while
lhe passing of Ihe ferry by lews would
eniblu Hie board to lay oui Hi plana.
Mailers of finance would in any caau
hme lo await until the money market
had improved.
Abl. Dick remarked thll these by
laws were uot actually for civic expenditure. The ferry bylawi involved s
■ju•■ ium of guaranteeing bondi. The
bridge In Iiuv hid been puled already
iud wis to be virtually validated
They were not for ictuil money. But if
these Inlaws were submitted at the
lime of lhe general election ind, un Hie
top of Ihem more Iiv laws, audi ns ua
lerworks, board of workt, lud so on,
riteptyeri coining lo vote from pieces
uiilside the city would think lliere wis
being • Irememluua expenditure uf
inililii muney. Alt opportunity might
nut occur nl ■ -. ...inning that I'm'in b,"-
lawa were aimply validating other by
l|Wl Ihtl have beeu passed.
Aid. Dick thougbt it would be jutt
ts well to submit these guaranteeing
uml validating by lawa immediately.
Aid. I'liiu'r agreed with Ibis view,
ami on a vote beiug taken tbe council
decided lo tdbere to ils previous re

THB  HOWB BOUND  8BOTION OF
THB PAOHPIO OBBAT 8A8TBBN
The mpvenieuf wbich ii now on foot
to interview tbo provincial governinenl
npon the matter of Ihe prolonged delay in tbe commencement of tbe con
..nu,ium of the linet of the Piclliu
Oreat Kuslern Huilway, on the Norlh
Bhore, in accordance with tbe terms
af the agreement lietween that Company and the government, it one concerning whicii the ratepayers are
unanimous iu tbeir ipproval.
I'jieoiiriig.-ii by tbe terms of lbe
igreement which wis in iutegril pirt
of thU progressive ruilwuy policy upon
which the government ippeiled to the
country md met with iuch ilguil emcees, the eiii/ens uf lhe North Shore
confidently anticipated tint ground
would bo broken somewhere on this
tide of the Inlet, ou or before July
1st lusl, aud that railway coustructiou
would be carried on continuously from
that time forward.
Notwithstanding tbe fact that these
reasonable expectations met with disappointment, believing iu tbe good
faith of ali parties, the local public
accepted with exeelleut spirit the pros
peel of whit they confidently believed
would be but a short delay, and contented themselves with i deferred hope.
A period uf pncticiliy nine mouths
hat uow passed, however, since the
agreement wis ratified by tbe House
it Victorii, iud the dite also it
which ,-oiisiru, hun wn to Inve com-
nn -in ml locilly Ills been exceeded by a
period of ipproximitely five mouths.
The Mtiiui inn which hai developed ie,
therefore, such that North Hhore citi
tens uiiniioi longer remain sileut and
inactive without accusing themtelvei of
nnliiii hi uin,-ss i,, their owu interests
ami the decision to approich the gov
eminent for the purpose of ascertaining
the causes of the delay and of over
eoniing tlie same, has, therefore been
reached aud will doubtless be acted
upon immediately.
The undertaking it one of lbc great
est moment to the North bhore and the
welfare of important isaues is involved iu the result. For that reasou it is
imperative lhat tbe matter be ap
proaebed iu tne wisest possible mau
uer and tbtt. every provisiou whieb
expert idviee or ripe experience in
sueh mutters ilu suggest, be mule in
order to develop and to strengthen the
ease which the North Bhore has to pre
seul, and to ensure, as far as possible,
lbc sn,, I-.- of lhe effort which is
nl '.ui to lie made, ll is uul for a mo
menl lo be supposed lhal the devil
tion from the letter of (he igreement
which has lakeu pine relative to time
uud place of eOmmeucemeut of coo
sun.lion lias eel-aped tbe notice of tlie
Department of Itailways, neither etu
the eoneluiioti be eutertained that the
present situation in this regard has
been allowed tu develop without Ihe
existence uf ciuses, whieh iu the et-
limttiuu uf those iu lutboitty hive
been considered adequite (o justify the
time. Now tbe purpoie of the moye
menl which hu been let ou foot must
be, to discover tboie causes and to dl
velop i cue from i Nurtb Bbore point
uf view which will fairly meet tnd
overcome tbem. It it by operating
along il,is line thai lueeesi ii Iq be at
tained.
Koine of (he reasons for Ibe delay
are already familiar to those whu have
closely followed Ihe information which
has beeu nude public from lime lo time
and Ihey are uot by luy iiieins tuffl-
rieul lo justify lbe deliy, from i Nortb
'••I  pomi of view or when provincial
Intereiti ire considered.
The <liili. nines which hive beeu mel
Willi in preparing Ifae location plan of
Ibe railway right-el way along Ifae
nslern shore of Howe Bound bave
beeu cited as oue eiuse. Tbere it no
doubt ai It) Ihe actualities of thote
difficulties from an engineering stand
point, but it docs uot therefore follow
that mitter* could uot have beta expe
dlted hail tbe neceitary ueuuret been
adopted, The public bae sot been inform
ed aa to bow large a foree bat beeu
employed In tbe work along Ifae eatt-
em there of lhe touod and there does
not appear to lie puy reeaoa why several
additional aurvey parties ihould uot
hive lieen placed in tbe field in that
•ertiev/te batten rite work, bad Hu
detire exiated tp meet Ifae letter of
tfae agreement, In ifae (Mint under dis
eaieion.
It ii urged lbat tb* diaVuJtle, which
are** wltb referent* ie tin ro*U
through Wett Vanwaver bav* blocked
tbe way to commencement of construe
tion within ten mllei of Vaneouver.
No teriout effort bu been made to
deny tb* fatt thus cited, bnt tbe que*
tion "till remains, wbere It tbe respun
eibility |p bi placed In tbit regard'
Certainly not with tbe municipality of
West Vancouver or with auy otber tec
lion of the North Shores Tbe comptny't
roule through the city of Nortli Vincouver md the district uf North Van-
cduver was promptly arranged and ap
proved and iu point of fact it tbe
only pun of their entire route which
the company Inve ae yot hid ipproved
iuitmucli as Ihey obtained the right:
of-way upun which they ire now building from Bnckeudile to liillooel, by
right of purcbaae from the Howe
Bound ami Northern Bailway Compauy.
As for Weet Vancouver, Ihe council
of iimt municipality, upuu the proposed
route of the Company beiag submit
ted to them for consideration, took
that action wilb respect thereto which
they conceived to be iu the public
intereiti as entrusted to tlieir keeping.
Since adopting that attitude the die
triet eouueil have promptly complied
wilh every requirement which has been
made uf them ami havu iu no way fol
lowed a course which would tend In
any degree to delay mailers beyond the
time which was absolutely neee.s-.nry
fur meeting those requirements. It is
.liili,,ill. therefore, lo tee in what way
the situation at Wesl Vaneouver cm
be put forward as a reason why North
Bhore interests should lie made tu suffer
u tbey are suffering at the prcienl
time, because of noncompliance with
the igreement.
t'lnler the igreement, the govern
meiit is guaranteeing the bonds of tin
Company to the amount of $.'18,0011 pel
mile. The judicious use of this sun
sidy from the people of the-province
through the goverument, demands thut
the southern link of this railway from
Durrani Inlel lo the head of Howe
Bound lie the first section to be cou
structed ami operated, and tin igrce
menl evidently nude provisiou that
such should be tbe cue. Whit is to
lie giined by the rapid construction of
■ line connecting J.iilooet with llie
hold of Howe Bound I Tbe country
rom Pemberton Meadows lo I.illooe
.1 practically unpopulated, it it In ll.
undeveloped stale and il includes Mf
tious ou which the I'onstruclion isth
heaviest ilong the entire roule from
North Viucouver lo Fort Oeorge. Ie
Ibere luy comparison between the im
mediate advantages to be gained liy tbe
early conilruction of lhal section as
compared with the nlvaulages to be
had by the construction of the section
from Hurrard lulet lo the held of Howe
Buuud. On iud iboot Hurrard lulel
is found one half tne population of tin
eutire province. Here it a large popu
Iiiiun willing le provide i market fur
the lumber iud olher product! of the
Bquimish Valley ami for the farm
produce of Fembertou Meadows, one
of the finest agricultural sections of
Ihe province which for twenty years
p.-isi has been crying oul for transport
iiion facilities, iu order to givi ii-cim
to market. The construction of Ihli
link from Hurrard lulet lo Newport
would, therefore, plice lbe greatest
centre of populitiou io tbe province in
iinme.hale eouuectiou with the com
piralively well populated districts of
Bquimish und i'eiiiberloii Menlows.
Then i* ivory reason lo coucludi thai

it ii in the intereiti of tfae province
Ibat thete centres be the firit points

it uot wite policy tbat public moneys

thii departure tbo aldennau says "The
method ii adopted in European centres

I read of a loan tbat bad been pul on
thi market In tbit way iud It wu
subscribed for 81 timet over,"
Coniidered on itt merits, there ire

thie scheme, The principle would be
obi ui ned from local sourcei -and tbe
intereat in turn would be |nid to

form of taxes, thus retaining Ihe en
tire amounts in local circulation, liro
kerage charges and discounts wouhl be

be found to be the very best kind of

Nutwithsttniliug ile many common-

in.-it being l.i.iuiii acres. There are
yet 70,000 acres lo be taken Intu tbe

there should be ruum fur a milium in

ly tu be reached within lbc cuiiiitig

that New Vory city, for instance, has
at the present time some 85,0011 acres
