Early Supply of Gas is
Promised by B. C. Gas Co.

Service if Franchise is Passed
"Tlu- publication in tbe 'Chinook'

yesterday. "In reply te, these queries
we have stated thai our Company is
fortunately situated fur giving such

we are concerned the construction

Just before tlu- "Chinook representative left reference was made to
the advisability of a large central

of Greater Vancouver because e,f the
conditions which now prevail em this

The Council must do'something in
the matter of laying aside a portion
of the public parks for bowling clubs.
I have been approached by several
very prominent citizens to take thi-
matter up and get a private green
formed, but the cost would be altogether prohibitive as it will take at
least $5000 or $6000 to put a club .-n
a  good- footing.
It appears the government are
aboul to form a frog hatchery.
Whether the frogs are feir gastronomic
use or hygenic purposes is not stated.
Thc only facts given for the new
hatchery is the small percentage of
the eggs that reach maturity. The
South Vancouver people will hardly
believe this. From the sounds that
are at present heard all over the
municipality one would imagine there-
had been no deaths in the freig family
for the last half dozen generations,
and that all the progenitors of thc
species for the previous three generations had been rescusitated to join in
the chorus that delights and charms
the ear of the residents of the municipality.
Reeve Kerr was the recipient of a
letter enquiring as to what sites and
exemptions were offered to induce
manufacturers to locate in South
Vancouver; also what future legislation the Council would take up along
these lines, and what profit or loss the
municipality sustained in such transactions. Where a city or municipality grants cheap industrial sites and
exemptions, there can be no direct
monetary gain, but there is an abstract profit loosened that floats
around the whole of the districts
granting such concessions to encourage  trade   that no one can  compute.
What a pity South Vancouver cannot secure a few hundred acres to allocate for small manufacturers. I
heard a gentleman say the other day
that he did not believe in such encouragement being given. It is not
a matter of what one's individual
opinion is but rather what are best
expedients for bringing manufacturers within the precincts of South
Vancouver. Had South Vancouver
only some broad-minded public men
with plenty of capital at their command, we would soon see her leap to
the front as the second foremost city
and  electric sy-ie-m
te,   ��ecure   industrial
in Britisii Columbia. Unfortunately
while most of the citizens and ratepayers of South Vancouver ran comfortably get ah eng, yel there are few
who have the capital to launch feerth
in large schemes; in  fact, there i- n���.
money at alt  to spare in  speculation.

The Central Parliament is prorogued lill October 3 next. The Government, after weary months of labor

Trustees to Submit Three New Bylaws
How many readers of the lirst issue of the "Chinook" thought it
woulil live through the first year to
enter upon its second. F'or a year-
old child ii is a strong, healthy
youngster, poscssing good lungs and
a healthy body, and it is something
its parents may be proud of. There
is no sign of disease or decay about
the "Chinook"; it has every appearance of living to a good, ripe old age.
The only matter that is causing any
anxiety is that it has been outgrow-
iiT- its clothes. So well has it thriven
that unless a new suit is purchased
soon something will require tei be
done. Every inch of space is already
over-crowded with machinery. It
must be gratifying to the shareholders
to see the success of their investment,
and I am confident the readers arc
all proud of their "Chinook."

When the ratepayers turned down
the School Bylaw I predicted at the
time that they would regret it. I
have heard upward of 100 people regret they did not go to vote that
day. Through their apathy the municipality has lost $75,000, as the Government refuse to grant a single dollar. It is a pity that the burden of
the extra taxation cannot be thrown
upon the shoulders of those who
created  the  situation.
As probably ihe natural conse-l
quence of the rejection of the school
bylaws recently submitted tee tin electors eef Semth Yanceniver. il was definitely slated ai a meeting of the
school board trustees mi Monday
that the government al Victoria hae;
declined the grain of $75.11011 previously expected: Ko reasons were given
by the government for tin refusal

The  enlargement
  ,.,B  ...   the  church, and  the
building and furnishing of the parsonage have been undertaken and
completed within the past year, the
latter being very largely the weirk of
the Ladies' Aid. These \ve,rks, together with generous contributions,
have brought up the total amounl
raised by this church tei some $2000
during tne past twelve months. Most
of all, the church rejoices in the additions te, ils ranks from the Sunday school, some eighteen new mam-
the air eif the room in which it is
burning. It has, therefore, a striking
advantage over ordinary coal gas for
the purposes of cooking stoves, gas
tires and stores as well as general
lighting and heating.
"The De Laitte gas machines which
generate the aii-gas arc claimed to
be the last word in inventions of the
kind, and this claim has been en-
ihersed by a number of leading authorities on gas lighting and heating
in England. Germany and elsewhere.
They are the most widely distributed
f air-gas systems and have received
the   great eft   number
.arieeiis  exhibitions.
"The prices of these De Laitte gas
machines are so moderate that they
are within the reach eef the householder who cannot afford expensive
lighting or heating installations. Once
installed the machines arc always
ready feer work, starting and stopping
automatically.    They require no regit-;
lating or altering of the number of
jets, and any kind of driving power
can be used, such as weights, electricity, water, Imt air,'gas or transmission.
Ihey have solved, in fact, lhe problem of a small self-contained gas
wurks by which every single house
can   have  its  own   source  eif  lighting
or heating,
"One advantage which the De Laitte
Benoid   gas   apparatus   can   claim   is
of   special   concern   to   householder!
in   South   Vancouver,     namely,     the
safety   from   lire  or  explosieen.    This
| security  is  assured  by  thc  tilling  of
the   De   Laitte   gas   apparatus   with
petnel   being   so   arranged     lhat     the
user   does  not  come   in   contact   with I
it. and it is never poured out in contact with air.   The petrol is obtained
from the refineries in casks or drums,
stored outside in a covered pit or in
a   lire-proof   cellar   and   thence   conveyed  tei the apparatus by  means of
a   pump   and   lead   piping.     Danger
from  either  lire or  explosion is  thus
practically obviated."

ran be no question as to the insistent need of gas. The
general fear is that the whole matter will again be shelved

Several letters which have been addressed to the "Chin-!

petition, largely signed by residents of Cedar Cottage
���and district, had been sent tei one ceimpany asking that
their bouses be connected with Its mains, but with no resull. Another writer states that several buildings would
ile erected between Sixteenth and Twenty-fifth Avenues
if gas is only provided, as hitherto owners of land have
refused to build until heating or cooking apparatus is assured.

There are more ways than one of boosting South Vancouver. One of the nnesl practical ways is by inducing
industries t'i locate lure, and when established, by patronising them. It i-. however, one of the most unsatisfactory
causes of common complaint thai a number of people, pos-
���sibly from men- thoughtlessness, purchase numerous articles outside lhe municipality that could equally well be obtained in South Vancouver.
Uf any public body should sei an example in the way of
j-.irelercntial dealing with South Vancouver tradesmen, we
should  have   imagined   that   llle  municipality
prohibitive. It may be doubted whether wireless telegraphy will ever supersede electric telegraphy to any

Charles Eliot Xortejn, who died
four or live years ago at Cambridge,
Massachusetts, in the house he was
bom in, left seeme letters that a good
many people have been eagerly waiting to see. They are now beginning
to appear iu "Scribner's Magazine."
Unless expectation is disappointed,
they will be rather extraordinary let- j
ters. For Mr. Norton was an extraordinary man.
lie  was  for  many  years  professor
of  tbe   history  of   line   arts  at   Harvard,   and   be   wrote   several   books
abeiut   his   subject,     lie  was  also    a
student   of   Dante  and   made  an   excellent  prose   translation   of  Dante's
masterpiece.    Hut  the  peculiar  interest  of   his  life  did   not  come   from
these   admirable   labors.     He   was   a
man   whom   many   men   loved,   and
among   those   who   loved   him   were
many of the finest spirits of his time,
in this country and abroad,    l'robab-
'y no other American ever had such
friendships.    The  mere  list  of  them
' would lill pages, and on those pages ,
would   appear   the   names   of   nearly 1
all our greater American writers and
artists   of   Norton's   time���thc   later
two-thirds  of  the  past  century���and
an astonishing number of their English  and  Continental  contemporaries.
What we may see of these men's letters to Norton, and of his to them and
about them, will be deeply interesting
to thoughtful Americans.
We   shall   hardly   see  anything  wc
ought  not   to  see.    For  these  interesting  friendships were  genuine, and
no   man   ever   lived   with   a   keener
sense of the sacredness of friendship,
or  of  any  other  high  relation,   than
Norton   had.     Most   of   his     friends
owed him more than he owed them.
Often   an   editor  himself,  he  set   the
world an  example in the right handling of great men's literary remains���
Carlyle's,  for  instance,  and  Ruskin's.
He was scholar and student, connoisseur and traveler, but the best notion
of him is conveyed by the phrase "an
American   gentleman   of     the     nine
teenth century."    It is a serious ques
tion  how  many  Americans  of  today
could   conceivablv  live   such   a   high
kind of life as he lived, or even would

"The   School"   is     an     educational
monthly   edited   by   members   of   the
Faculty  of  Education  in  the University of Toronto, and containing articles written by educationists who are
not necessarily members of that faculty.    To  one  of  these  contributions
in  the  March number  there attaches
a   melancholy   interest,   because     its
distinguished   author,   Dean   Ellis   of
the Faculty of Education In Queen's
University,  has  very  recently  passed
away after a long educational career.
The  subject of his  paper    is    "The
Teaching  of   History,"  and,  needless
to  say,  hc  had  treated  his  theme  in
a helpful and  suggestive way.
Without   attempting   to   give   even
la bare outline of the paper it may bc
of use to set forth its motive; to make
teachers  try  to answer  the  question,
why   history   is   on   thc   courses   of
study in both primary and secondary
schools, i  In  the opinion of  Mr.  Ellis, "by  far  the most valuable  assets
the student can carry away from this
study arc the desire to go farther and
the   ability  to  gratify   that  desire;  a
lively   feeling  of   want   in   regard   to
historical  knowledge   and  the   power
to  satisfy that want."    This is  practically equivalent to saying that if history is so taught in schools that pupils   shall  be  inclined  to  discontinue
the   reading   of   the   subject   in   after
life,  then  it  would  have  been  better
feir   them   to   do   without   history   altogether until after the conclusion of
their   school   career.     History   is   intrinsically interesting on many of its
numerous sides, and it should not be
hard  to  create  in  school  pupils  not
merely a languid desire but a passionate liking for it

Travelling Clothes
Selei ting clothes for travelling pur-
poiet i- slways a subject of importance at any time There are those
who make a ipecialty ol navel it they
have 111 iin ei- opportunity and Ihey
llit to and fro through the land and
,,ver ih. ocean as though it was ab-
loluh I) ui.e--.ny to their existence.
Sunn e,i these have llle travelling
dow, in a science, others do not
know hurt   in do il well.
li is not alone a question of whal
to wear in order to be well dressed,
but also in order to be comfortable,
and often in "rele-r lo save any unusual amount of laundry. Tbe latter
is an expense even at home, but it
is far worse in strange- placet, and
often ii is met convenient to have
it deme.
Even the most experienced traveller takes delight in her clothes,
therefore  the   inexperienced    one     is
apt to give the question far   more
thought, and with the delight is mingled a deal of anxiety and worry.
The elimination of anything elaborate is the chief demand for good
dressing on the train. If a woman
thoroughly comprehends this, she is
not apt to go far wrong, She wants
gowns that do not wrinkle and that
are not touched up with a lavish
amount of trimming. The blouses
must be tailored and simple; no lace
insertions or ruffles nor boned stocks
of lace or tulle. White silk shirtwaists are the best because they are
cool, have no starch, and can be washed and ironed over-night if necessary.
The rival of the silk blouse are those
of marquisette, which is also cool and
which does not hold starch. Long
sleeves are thc best, although they
are not as cool as the elbow ones.
If one elects to travel in a dark
blue silk or satin or serge suit���this
color having grown more into favor
for travelling each year���then the
blouse of chiffon cloth, lined with
while silk is an excellent choice. It
may bc of the same color as the suit
and made in a loose comfortable
The question of what lo wear for
dinner on a steamer is an anxious
problem to many who do not go
abroad every year. Some women
solve it by saying, "We will take
some dressy white muslin blouses
and wear them with dark skirts."
It is quite a mistake to think that
a shirtwaist, no matter how fancy,
can ever serve for a dressy occasion.
The fact that it is elaborately trimmed in fine lace and hand embroidery does not make it eligible for a
social affair. It is still a blouse, and
is only intended for certain hours.

One thing is certain; women with
big feet and women with little feet
will have plenty of sailor tics in their
spring outfits���if they can afford it.
Sailor ties with cloth quarters���quarters meaning the tops of low shoes���
are very popular, and when the cloth
matches the wearer's suit or gown
the shoes are very effective. Sailor
ties are low shoes that aren't, ties at
all, but are fastened with buckles.
They are called this because this
shape began life as ties, and they are
still called so to distinguish them
from Oxfords, which button.
There are so many different sailor
ties���the afternoon shoe, par excellence���that   it   is   quite     maddening

I'unips are going oul. It is sad,
hut Ihey are. Something resembling

the cut is different, as are the trimming!, .
Trimming makes the shoe this

A Red-cross Heroine
Among ilu- brave little band of
women who have distinguished themselves ill Red Cross work in the Balkan war none have done more signal
service than Dr. Caroline Matthews,
a London lady surgeon, who attached herself to the Montenegrin forces.
Called out one terrible night near
Scutari to attend a wounded officer,
Dr. Matthews started off through the
darkness, though a blizzard was
blowing, over the rough frontier
road. She stumbled at a loose boulder that came down on to the tortuous track from the hill above, and,
encumbered with dressings and surgical necessaries, was quite unable to
save herself from a nasty fall into a
deep gorge. The doctor was stunned
and badly injured, her face being
much cut and several of her teeth
broken. But nothing daunted, she
wiped tbe blood away and struggled
forward to hcr patient. By the light
of a camp lire she managed to set
the officer's broken limb, and only
then gave proper attention to her own
hurts. Dr. Matthews is now practically recovered, but for over a fortnight after her painful experience she
had to see to relays of patients at the
Red Cross Hospital base with the
lower part of hcr face in bandages.

bet.ne washing them, so that tbe
soda will not affect the ebony. Then,
when dry, a little olive oil, applied

a clean cloth, will give as much in dish
as is required, as ebony should not
be very highly polished at any time,

brushes in very hoi water and se.ela

Dried Fruits
Nowadays nearly every kind of
fruit can be had in dried variety, so
that they may be said to be never
out of season. But for whatever pur-
pose dried fruits are used, great care
should be taken in their preparation.
Before they are cooked they should
be washed in cold water then set in
a big bowl of warm water and allowed to stand for twenty-four hours.
The fruits will then have swollen

Button Hints
All know the annoying habit buttons have of coming off at a moment
when they arc most needed. It seems
sometimes as though nothing short
of wire thread will keep them in
their places, and even wire breaks
away from the cloth. When next you
are sewing on a bulton, follow these
directions and that button will never
trouble you again. Place your button, take a hairpin���a strong one���
and lay it across the button. Then
sew it over the hairpin. When you
have put as much thread through the
eyes as they will hold, withdraw the
hairpin. Then push tbe needle
through near the button, pull button
up and wrap thread- several times
around between the button and the
garment. Fasten thread on the underside of button and then you will
find that that button will stay on
until the garment is worn out.

as of the waists themselves. An 1

Scenes in Parliaments
Some time ago Lord Raglan, Lieutenant-Governor of the Isle of Man,
declaring that alterations in the existing methods of spending money could
only be put forward by the House
of Keys with bis permission.
I This decision proved very unpalatable to the legislators of the island
beloved by holiday-makers, and at a
private session the following resolution was passed : "That His Excellency be respectfully informed that the
communication with which his Excellency has honored the House does
not present an acceptable solution of
the  difficulty   therein   referred   to."
Mr. Churchill, who was then Home
Secretary, was appealed to. He backed up Lord Raglan, saying that the
stand he had taken was "in accordance  with  constitutional  practice."
The House of Keys was very angry
indeed, and practically went on strike.
They refused to proceed with any of
their ordinary business, and the Governor was obliged to adjourn the
Court indefinitely.
Some six years ago (to be accurate,
in December, 1906) Spain was in a
similar peculiar plight. On October
30 of that year Senor Domingucz,
who had held thc reins of office for
four months only, resigned' with all
his Cabinet, and Senor Morct became
Prime Minister. His policy was obnoxious to the Chamber of Deputies,
and when, iu December, they were
called together it was found impossible to get a quorum, and therefore
to transact public business of any
kind whatever. So Moret was forced
to resign, after holding office for the
shiniest time on record, even in
Spain, a country where Ministerial
crises are notoriously frequent,
The most extraordinary scene
whieh ever occurred iu the Spanish,
or perhaps any Parliament was that
of November, 1904. Certain deputies
were nie ere than suspected of tamper*
ing with public money and with taking bribes. The Government made
up their minds to prosecute, but it
was necessary first to obtain authorisation   from  the   House.
Seemingly there were more members involved than was suspected, for
a large minority went on strike and
commenced the most determined obstruction. They organized reliefs and
began talking against time. One discussed the importance of stock fish;
another proposed an alteration in the
tariff on imported porcupines. They
sang litanies in chorus, and occasionally burst into roars of cheering.
They utterly ignored the Speaker,
and this sort of thing went on for
two days and a night and part of a
second night. Sheer exhaustion forced a short recess, but as soon as the
House reassembled the obstruction
became worse than ever, and degenerated into a riot, when inkpots were
thrown and the silver crucifix on
which the oath was administered was
broken   into  pieces.
For days business was absolutely
at a standstill, and eventually the
prosecutions were  given  up.
The only scene of thc kind in thr
British House of Commons occurred
in February, 1891, during a discussion
on Home Rule. When the House
was to be cleared for a division, thirty-six Irish members struck, and absolutely refused to leave their places.
They wcre every one suspended. The
Speaker bas the power to order members  into custody for disrespect.
Another Parliament that went on
strike was the House of Congress of
that small but warlike South American  State,  Paraguay.    A  number of

Are you using carbon lamps fur lighting ?
Do you know that Tungsten lamps give three times the amount
of light obtained from the carbon lamp with thc same consumption
of current?
Would it not be advisable for you lo secure this improved form of
lighting ?
After you have considered the above queries visit our salesrooms
and ask tbe lamp counter clerk to demonstrate the difference between the Tungsten lamp and thc ordinary carbon lamp.

such universal appeal ami tremendous

among   men   there   is   a   like  unusual I
feeling of interest, since 1 ne for one's '
mother is perhaps the very strongest
emotion a man is capable of.     Maude J
Leone   will   be   seen   in   the   famous;
title role, a role which has been played by Sarah Bernhardt, Lena Ashwell,
Dorothy   Donnelly and a    score    uf

Reports from Louisville, Ky., state
a new champion three-year-old of
America leaped into prominence on
Saturday and the Churchill Downs
derby course was broken before the
largest crowd that ever witnessed a
derby here, when Donerail, a Ken-
lucky cult, nipped Ten Point at the
wire and won lhe thirty-ninth renewal of the Kentucky derby. The
winner, never having shown startling
ability as a two-year-old-, paid $184.90
feer $2 in llle pari-mutuels betting.
The time was 2,04 4-5. The field
was larger than had been predicted,
eight starters facing the barrier, and
spectators who have witnessed runnings of the derby for years, interesting alike for its turf prominence
and sentiment of Kcnluckians say it
was one of the greatest exhibition!
fi a real horse race ever presented at
a   Kentucky derby contest.
When the hoi es passed thc grand
stand after running a quarter mile
of the mile and quarter course, Ten
Point had been leading, wilh the
ulliers bunched closely behind him.
At the turn Jockey Buxton had allowed his mount to take a commanding lead and al the mile Ten Point
was three lengths ahead wilh the

Some Suffragettes I Have Known
By  Felix  Penne
(Just   a   few  memories)
1 have had a half century's experience as a journalist. I have seen the
good work which the women have
done on the London School Board,
on boards of guardians and other
spheres of useful work, and I am indignant over the fact that my country women are so unjustly treated as
to be deprived of the undoubted
rights which  they as citizens claim.
When I was a youth, in my search
after knowledge and "culture," I attended on Sunday mornings classes
and debates at "The Elusis Club,"
Chelsea. Here Mr. Moy Thomas,
who so splendidly translated Victor
Hugo's romances into English, and
who wrote a very thrilling story, "A
a very lively debate, a slim, beautifully ceimplexioned, and quietly, elegantly dressed lady visitor, ruse frum
her seat and took us all to task with
some very trenchant) biting sarcasm.
She asked UI, when we bad abolished the House of Lords, when we had
put the army and navy on a proper
footing, when we bad given the male
wage earner adequate pay for an
eight-hour day, when wc had in fact
remodelled the whole social system
on lilies which men approved, to have
ihe courtesy, the justice, to consult
whether they stif-
grievances which
needed remedy, whether ihey had any
aspiration! which we could help them
lo realize. And then followed a statement of women's view of our social
system, su lucid, so temperate, and
- i convincing that it made an Impression upon me 1 desire never to
Thus I made the acquaintance of
Mr-. A -li ie en Dilke���an acquaintance
which   ripened  Into a   friendship  with
a very remarkable woman,
Mrs. Dcspard, who has been so
prominent in tbe ranks of the militant suffragettes, is a very old friend
of mine. Although somewhat of a
"fury" in her advocacy uf "vies feir
hi emeu." Mrs. Dcspard���a- I knew
In-r, was a sweei, philanthropic old
lady, alwayi trying to do good. At
Vauxhall, n crowded and squalid part
uf South London, she built the "Dcspard Club." and here em Saturday
nights the gas workers would bring
iheir wives and sweethearts lei a
pleasant  concert  and dance, and  Mrs.
Deipard's strong, characteristic faci
would be wreathed in smiles as ihe
gave In-r working visitor! a hearty
welcome, The large hall was frequently used fur lectures, and I once
had the hiiiiur of lecturing there on
the "llislury of Lambeth Palace,"
with that gallant cavalry officer���one
of the heroes of the Boer war���General French, who is Mrs. Deipard'i
brother, in  the  chair.    Mrs.   Dcspard.
yeeti see, belong! to a lighting family,
and at the Lambeth Board of Guardians I have known her to "put up"
many a good fight on behalf of some
poor creature, male as well as female, who she thought was being
harshly treated by the administrators
of the wretched English poor law���
that brutal remnant of the "spacious
days of Queen Elizabeth."
Reasons of space, not want of matter, compels me to only briefly allude to other women I have known
���some of them intimately, who have
been prominent in women's movements during the last forty years.
Of every one 1 mention I cherish
remembrances full of reverence, admiration and respect. i here was
Helen Taylor, John Stuart Mill's
friend. Helen Taylor I heard speak
many times in her candidature for
the London school board. I shall
never forget her tall, elegant figure,
the beauty of her diction, the purity of
her pronunciation and the marvellous skill with which she marshalled
her facts and arranged hcr arguments.
Helen Taylor was for some years
a great power in  South London.
That's all, for the present.

Main     Street     Association     Discuss
Assessments and Gas Franchise
Al a meeting of the Main Streel tra-
preivenu-nt Association held em Monday evening, the three leading topics
discussed were assessment!, improved
car service and gas franchise-.
A table hail heen prepared through
the kindness of Mr. S. II. West, as-
.t-.M.i, ��howing ilu- graduation in the
itessment along Main Streel throughout ils entire length    in    lhe    muni.
\  meai   number  e,i   the  nwmbera
urged lhat il should he brought le> the
attention e.i the Council that a much
larger  proportion  of  ilie    municipal
revenue sheiuld he spent in lhe western peirtiem e.f lhe municipality, Main
Slreel alone contributes the sum e,f
forty thousand ihilhir-, yearly to the
municipal exchequer in taxes, and il
is quite likely lhat. the association
will ,il a later meeting lake steps In
impress upon the Council the nec.es>
sily leer a readjustment to prevent ill
a measure the evil e,f eme main street
paying high laxes feer lhe purpose e>f
carrying em eif improvements, etc., on
another main sireet In a different
part of the municipality which pays
low  taxes.
Assessment values em olher tlmr-
eiughfares were also shown for the
purpose of comparison.
Messrs. Chas. N. James, E, Clough
and- A. Hamilton were appointed to
assist the Seeuth Vancouver Council
in their negotiations to secure the
necessary land at thc foot nf Main
Street for a "Y.' The amount shown
een the plans of the company as necessary being two triangular portions
at the point where Main'Street intersects tlie Eburne line, lhat em the
west side being 50 feet by 50 feet,
and em the other side 60 feet by 80
feet. The securing of this with an
alteration in the position of two of
the switches south of Bodwell Reiad
will enable the B, C. Electric Company to send alternate Davie cars
through to the river, giving thc lower
end a 12 minute service and during
rush hours an 8-mlllUte service which
will bc very gratifying to people of
this district who have been waiting
patiently for an extension of the
Davie cars.
A resolution was passed bv the as-
social ion supporting the Council in
their efforts to establish a municipal
gas plant. There was a great ileal of
discussion on this matter, but the arguments put forward by exponents
of a municipal owned plant prevailed
as shown by the above resolution.
Some of thc points for and against
arc here  noted :
For���1. A municipal gas plant
would give the municipality a higher
assessment, and hence greater borrowing power.
2. It would become a great revenue producer in later years and a
great   asset   to   the   municipality.
3. Gas and light is entitled to the
same claims for municipal ownership
us water.
Against���1. The lime is neit ripe
leer a municipal owned gas plant as
the municipality can not affe.rd to divert  its borrowing power.
2. The revenue for a number of
years   would  be   small
3. '1 he companies seeking a franchise for gas are prepared lee go ahead
and spend money which llle municipality might mit be in a position tn
do  for a  lime.
Mr.   Kenneth   Lamond, secretary  of
the Seeiuh Vancouver Board of .rail,
paid ilie association a visit, and incidentally became a member. Mr
Lamond sees a greal future feir Main

of the River Road to enable lhe Davie
cars to run through to the I-'raSL-r

to the construction of the "V" has
been the price of land in that locality,
