Mr. J. W. Weart Withdraws from Contest - Hon. F. L
Carter-Cotton Declared Elected by Acclamation.
Elsewhere in eur columns will hi
''fund the officii! declaration of Returning Officer J. T. Sexsmith, according
the Boat for Richmond riding in tho
provincial assembly, te Hoe. F. L. Car
tor-'Cottou, consequent upou the withdrawal of Mr. J. W. Weart, tho Liberal
candidate, from tbe field.
In tbo person of Hon. P. L. Carter-
Cotton, Richmond Hiding ia represent-
cd iu the local legislature by one ef tbe
foremost figures in provincial politica,
and by one wbo is iu overy sonso worthy
of the honor conferred upon bim snd
tho confidonco reposed in him by the
electors of this, the most populous and
most important one mail riding In the
proviuee. Mr. Cotton first entered tbe
political arena jn tlio year 1890 when
ho wis returned at the head of the poll
• in the eity of Vancouver, in opposition
to the sduiinistrstieu of Hon. John
Robson who waa then Premier. This
was the first occsaiou upon which Vancouver had aoparate representative! in
tho provjucisl legislature, the eity hat
iug beeu a part of Westminster riding,
up lo lhat time. In lbe eleetiou of
1894 Mr. Cottou wsb sgaiu successful,
being reelected to repressut the ler
luiual city, this time in opposition to
the government of Hou. Theodore Davie,
who hid succeeded Hon. John Robaon
as premier iu tbe Interim. The expiry
of the term of tbe then legislature
^ushered iu that period of instability
and of rapid changes in provincial governmental affair.-, which lenniuated in
the introduction of the prescut aystctn
of party government. Io 1898 Mr. Cotton was eloctcd for the city of Vancouver, in opposition lo the Turner ud
ministration. This administration wu
short lived however, the cabinet bsy-
ing been dismissed by Lieutenant Governor .Ms times after I few months. Mr.
Mi'inlm was called upon lo form a government aud Mr. Cotton was returned
us a member of that government, in
which he accepted the portfolio of ii
nauce and agriculture. Upou appeal
iug to the eleclors as the newly ap
pointed uiioister he was returned without opposition.     Ie li'li, iu addition
10 Ihe departments already under his
control, Mr. Cotton undertook the portfolio of tbe Chief Commissioner of
launls and Works, lu the year 1900
another appeal to the couutry became
neccisiry and inasmuch as Mr. Semliu
had intimated his desire to retire Mr.
Cottou waa virtually tbe head of the
prospective governmeut, having given
his definite promise that be would ad
here to what was known as the I'roviu
eial Parly, whicii had been Instrumental in tbe return of Mr. Semliu to power.
11 was at this juncture lhat the agi
tation iu favor of the party form of
government made its influence felt up
ou the situation, Mr. Joseph Mai Iiu
hiving declared openly for tho orgau
i,alion of tho Liberal parly with s
view to party government. The Cou
servstive forces also orgaui/.ed tbem
selves for a like purpose and although
Mr. Cot top was offered tbe leadership
of Ihe Conservatives, hC declined to accept because he considered it his duty
to remain atedfast in the promise lbat
bo had made to the Provincial parly,
which was eoluposed of adherents of
both political parties. The result was
tbat is that election Mr. Cotton sua
laincd the only reverse which has
marked his political career. The Liou
I ena n Ml o verner    then    called     upon
J*    Messrs. Joseph Martin snd D. W. Biggins to form a governmeut aud matters
-   .lulled en in a state of perpetual uncertainty  until  the year 1903,  when
Richard McBride succeeded iu carrying
the province for the Conservatives by s
bare majority.   Mr. Cotton first became
associated with Richmond riding at this
election.    This riding bad for many
years been represented by Mr. Kidd
who declined te accept nomination fer
'  another tend.    The Liberals placed in
tho field Mr. J. C. grown of New West-
i     minster, s strong candidate who had
\    already occupied s seat in the house for
several yeara  Tho Conservative party
was face to face with i formidable
difficulty to secure a candidate capable
nl entering the lists against   such  a
strong opponent and finally Mr. Cotton
wm pmiilei upou to take up the
gauge on behalf of the party.    After
a strenuous campaign he succeeded in

As chairmen of Ihe Hoyul Commn

Cotton waa tbe leadiug figure in the
formulation of Ihe report which form
cd the lmii of the policy of the McBride admiuialratiou which has prov
en so eminently successful iu building
up the financial strength and credit
of the province.
During his public career ol twisty
two years lo dale, Mr. Cottou has con
sistoutly advocated at least four depar
tures in public policy whicii have final
ly been adopted by Ihe admiuistratiou.
Free trade in Railways has been a
plunk in hii political creed for maay
yean and its final acceptance has been
io no small degree due lo Mr. Cotton's
able aud persistent advocacy. It is

Contrary lo the usual practice lbc Assessment Notices for
1912 have been scnl to the registered owners ol properly
anonling lo the Land Ketti.-hy records.
Up lo the preient, purchasers have been in lbe habit of
notifying the city authorities thai lbe properly bad changed bands
so lhal notices of assessment and taxation should nol p.n uslray.
This form of registration of owneis has heretofore been deemed
sufficient for cjly purposes, bul owing lo a recent decision lbc
cily council is advised by lis solitilois lo recognise ibese owners
only who appear on lhe records of the Land Registry Office.
Unfortunately a great many never register their deeds or agreements.
The North Vancouver I .and and Improvemenl Company
has received numerous assessment notices for 1912 for properly
which il has told and which has since changed hands Iwo or three
The Company, therefore, desires to notify persons who have

of aueument and taxation being sent lo them so that tbey may become aware of (lie value al which ihey arc being assessed and

Nortb Vincouvir, B. O : Much 19, lull
Tbi return of Hon. F. L. CtrterCot
ton as member of tbe provincisl logis
lature for Bichmond riding without a
contest follows neceaaarily upou the
withdriwil of Mr. J. W. Weart from
tbe field.
The retiring of tbe Liberals from the
contsat after having placed tbeir can
didatu iu the field, whatover supple
mentary causes may have contributed
to lead to such action, is a striking de
iii.". i.mu,n first, of,the unassailable
strength of the government witb the
electora of Richmond ridiug and second
ly of. the universal respect and cuufi
deuce whicii la everywhere reposed in
the present member, Hun. F. L. Carter-
The length of time which has elapsed since ilie Liberals definitely decided
to place a candidate in tho li.'l.l, has
proven ..in..., i tu enable Ihem to
make a preliminary canvass of the situ
atiou throughout the riding iu a geuerul
way, tbe results of which have doubt
less served to impress upon tbem Hie
hopelessness uf their cause, lu Mr. W.
J. Weart the Liberals had cboseu per
baps, the strongest candidate who could
bive been produced from their rauks,
in tbis riding. Mr. Weart is a repre
••ni.in., citizen, one wbo has long
been prominent in the public eye, a well
knowu member of the legal profession
and a prominent figure in financial cir
ties and is at present occupying the
position uf Heeve of Burnaby—ono of
lhe most pupuluus sud important pur
lions of the ridiu(j—for a second term
Mr. Weart was likewise Mr. Cotton's
opponent at the elections in the year
11)07 aud proved a doughty champion
for his party, haviug been defeated by
less tbau a score of votes.' Under such
circumstances it is but reasonable lo
couclude that hud tbe Liberals nut beeu
convinced that there wus no probabil
ity of winning the ridiug, tbey would
have fuund means of inducing their
cuudidate to remain in the field more
particularly iu view of tbe strenuous
efforts thai the party is now putting
furth tu break iu upou tbe solid govern
ment contingent at present represent
ing those constituencies bordering upon
Hurrard Inlet.
As fur tlie government forces no perty'
candidate could  wish   for  more ideal i
been obviated. Business is good at the
present time and although as loyal party
members locul Conservatives would huve
prosecuted the cunipaign with the ill
mosl  iu iiu in und energy, and with
the certainly uf success, nevertheless
the satisfactory settlement of political
differences without the diversion of time
and energy from business necessary to
a strenuous political campaign wili lie
appreciated by all parties throughout
the riding.
All who have ueeasion to use the tele
pbone for Vuncouver or other lung dis
tanee culls will fully concur witb the
letter of u .lozen representative business men, read ut last night's session
of the city council, complaining of Ihe
unsatisfactory service which is at pres
cut being accorded the public, with re
spec! lo long dislunee calls, il appears
to lie tlie universal experience among
telephone users that au attepmt to
get "Long Distance" invariably involved a delay of several minutes be
tweeu the reply of "Central" and tbe
response of "Long Distance" and fur
ther that uu interval running all Hie
wuy from twenty minutes to un Incur
is the rule rutber lhan the excoption
in making the connection with the
number required outside the eity.
Huch is the plain statement of fact,
but Die reason therefor is uot by any
means clear to the public mind. Il is
but just to say however, that no one
thinks of attributing this unattisfic-
tory stale of all'uirs to Unwillingness
upon lhe purl of tbe operators to give
the telephone users tbe musl prompt
sortne lliul is possible. That the op-
rators tire doing their best under the
conditions under which they work, is
taken fur granted. II would, therefore
appear,!ti those who are not versed iu
tho technicalities uf telephone opera-
lions, Ihul the poor service must be due
to one uf two causes. First, it may be
tbuj tht; service is curried ou with u
staff of operators which is too small in
numbers for the demands upun it, thus
overworking the operators aud making
it impossible for Ihem to give prompt
or edii lent service. On the other baud
ii .mm be Uml insufficient equipment is
the cause of the difficulty, either with

I wtreited i step, folded my arms

Ho moved ilowly—fearfully—toward

"Now, then,' Burke," I went on calmly, "I luppnsc we are ready to gel

He muttered Inuudlbly .without rail

"Wlial's lliat?"-sharply.

Wltb i quick gciture, he oulsprsid

"Enough, Bwlft, enough!" hi cried,
In a hoarie, distressed voice. "I know

"Oood," without alteration of tone or

land to brave Page'i wrath.
"Tben what did you do?" I pauied
to eye him a moment. ' "Why, ynu

Then, circumstantially, 1 detailed u
a statement of ihe caae, my reconstruction of tbe tragic nigbt, concluding with bis biding tbe ruby in this

"I'm not laklng my moro chances,
Swift; don'l worry. , . What was

That Iljw Question
Oouncll Dlscusies Plebiscite on Bottle
License Question
Tho city (libera list nigto dealt with
the recomineuilution of the local hoard
of licensing coiumiuioners idvising 1
plebiscite in the mitter qf a bottle license iu Nortb Vancouver, the termi
of the plebiscite to embody tbe question
is to whether tbe peoplo would wish
such in establishment, if auy licciiip
wero granted, to be conttolled by an
individual or conducted on tbe Norwel-
giau or Unlh.'iInu'i; i.y.'iii'iit as supported by Prof, B. E, Macnaghlen.
Aid. Irwin couiidercd the rocomniou-
sl.'n um ono wbicb tbe council could wisely adopt. Ho formally movod that thoy
receive favorably tbo license commissioners' report and cousidor tbo advisability of submitting the que, tiuu to
popular vote at somo convenient time
iu the nciir future.
Aid. Dick queried whether tbey were
technically within tbeir rights te authorize a plebiscite at the request of
one or two ratepayers. 1
The mayor reminded Aid. Dick that
Prof. Macuughteu had offered lo bear
the costs cutailcil.
Aid. Dick, however, argued that
there should be a certain demand fur
a plebiscite before the council permitted oue.
Aid. Biss, a member of the licensing
hoard, said that body had giveu tbe
matter very serious consideration and
bad come to tbe conclusion already
stated. "As a commissioner," plaintively observed the alderman, "wc feel
wc aru in a kimi of a tight box. 1
might as well stale the thing as it is."
Aid. Furemau expressed himself in
favor of a popular vote ou the subject.
An interlude then occurred whieh
slowly but surely rcvcslcd tbe fuel that
the exact nature of the Utthcrburg
system was not a household word with
the couucil. This revelation evoked
frum Aid. Dick the suggestiou tbat they
i-hiiulsl seek further enlightenment from
the licensing hoard.
Even the terms of the proposed plebiscite ,is drifted by Ibe board, were
not sufficiently definite to escape debate. Aid. Dick was temporarily uuder Ihe impression that three qucs
lions were lo he voted upon, two is
already quoted, and the third u to
whether the people wished uo bottle
license st all tu he granted. Aid. Fore
man also thought the people should
have the right lo say whether they
wished lo have one or not.
The mayor disagreed, string cmpbit

Aid. Dick then pointed out that if

said Aid. Dick, "I am opposed to tbo

city taking revenue from it."

policy at this stage. Before dealing

Aid. Dick on the Dangerous Powder
Aid, Irwin, during laat night's council
meeting, introduced a motion embody
Ing the advisability of securing a permanent police magistrate for this city.
Nortb Vaneouver had been deprived of
tbat benefit through tha long a^oiic.'
of Mr. A. 9 Kealy and it ajipwred
that Mr. Kealy was not likely to return. Aid. Irwin, tbereforo, framed
bis motion to the effect that "this
counoil requests the provincial govern
ment tn appoint a resident police magistrate for North Vancouver:"
Tbii was duly seconded and earned.
The council alio touched upon the
aubject of bloating, tbe mayor mentioning tbe number of complaints which
found their way to'the police office.
Aid. Irwin coniidered that in grant
Ing blasting permits the city took a
great responaibility upon itself. He
would rather see the provincial authorities responsible.
It was pointed out that as much discrimination aa possiblo wai exorcised in
the iesuing of permits.
"But," observed Aid. Dick, "the
man who knows all about powder is
generally the most careless. llic
man wbo knows that he doesn't know
what it is going to do is usually the
one to run no risks"
The provincial water commissioner
notified the council that he was now
able to issue a license to tho eity for
one cubic foot of water per second
from .Rice Lake.
Mattora pertaining to thu Second
Narrows bridge then aroio for brief
discussion. At a recent mocting of
the directors of the Burrard lulet 'Fun
nol and Bridge Co. it had been intimat
cd by the engineers of the department
of marine and fisheries that in their
opinion the bridge should have an
opening ipau of 250 feel. The com
pany'a engineers coniidered that a
span of 200 feet would amply suffice.
There waa now a probability II..n tbe
lepartuient would agree lo this, the
liit'eienee in cost between a loll feel
span and 200 feet span being approx'
unu I el v (200,000. On the motion of
Aid. Irwin, the council passed a resolution endorsing that of the company as
to tbe width of span which resolution
il to be forwarded to the department.
Aid. Dick begged lu be excused from
A letter was then read, petitioning
the council to approach the 11. C. Telephone Co. on the inadequacy of this

The last named tender was accepted.
Considerable time was then devoted
to the question as to whether or not
the matter of a gas franchise should
be gone into thoroughly that evening.
The mayor'a opinion wus that it was
a controversy to which they should dedicate an entire special session. After
tho aldermen had each expressed their
various views, the mayor and council
•plit the difference and decided lo appoint a date for a special meeting and
to reread the applications and comment
thereon tbat evening.    Whereupon llu'

itself.    I
II'WW ultimately iitllcd that' 'lhe
evening of Wedneiday, Marpb 27|h,
should be set apart for full discussion
and if possible, settlement of this im
portant question.
A considerable amount of misnellnne-
ous business was dealt with by the city
council last night when Mayor Me
Neiih presided over a full assembly of
aldermen, minus Aid. McBae.
The following items of croreapond
enee wero summarily referred to tbe
Board of Works:
