Burnaby     Ratepayers    in
Ward 1 Say Council Ignores Alta Vista.
Many    Improvements    Asked    for���
Bridge on Portland Street���Extend  Lighting  Facilities.
Alta Vlfta, March 7���Dissatisfaction at the attention the Alta Vista
district was receiving from the municipal authorities   was  expressed  at
a meeting of the Ward One Ratepayers' association In Cowherd's hall
here last evening. Charges were made
hy several of the members that the
district was not setting as many improvements as it should and that
more attention was being paid to newer localities.
Many improvements required by the
district were mentioned by the ratepayers and as a result of the discussions a delegation of two from the as
social ion will meet the board of works
ut their next regular meeting to put
the most urgent matters before tbem.
The secretary was Instructed to call
to the attention of the council the
necessity of grading Bumble street
east of Hoyal Oak and also the demand for a better water service on
portions   of   tbat   thoroughfare
A request thai the municipality erect
a bridge across l'ortland street in order to provide a means of communication with two sections of Alta Vista
wlll be made by the delegation which
will visit ths board of works. The
council will also be aBked to construct
a protection rail on the bridge over
the ravine on south Rumble street.
Telephone Facilities.
Tbe lack ot telephone facilities in
the neighborhood was mentioned during the evening und the secretary was
instructed  to  request  the  B. ('. Tele- j
phone oompany to permanently locate
a telephone pay station in a centralized portion of this part of the ward

The lt. C. EL It. franchise, the vital
tuple of iti,. day in Burnaby, uatur
ally came up for discussion for a time
It was first brought up through a
communication from the ratepayers ln
another portion of the  Ward, asking
the association to endorse two resolutions dealing with the matter
The first resolution called upon the
council to appeal the decision of Mr
Justice Murphy.    The association has
already put themselves on record in
favor of the appeal ami further action
was thought unnecessary.
The second resolution the meeting
was asked to endorse wns to the effect that Mayor Baxter of Vanconv. r
lie asked to cooperate with the other
municipalities   In   formulating some
general plan of transportation with
uniform rates und service to cover
the whole peninsula lbat would lie
acceptable to ull districts. The resolution wan considered premature und
tabled  for  that   reason
Favor Appeal.
The  Ward  One  Ratepayers'  u-isoc
billon. II was stated, did not favor an
appeal  Tor lhe sake of  reopening  the
case but merely to safeguard the pub
lie Intsrtsts pending tbe completion
of the liegi I lal ions between the council and the II. C   HS, It.
The time Is limited In which the
municipality can apply for an appeal
case and should tin- negotiations nl
present lielng conducted fall to be
conipb led In rote Ihe end of the time
limit It would be Impossible lo Institute appeal proceedings
Therefore It   wiih thOUghl  belter by
tin- ratepayers to appeal now ami if
the franchise mailer was Settled anil*

''Nowadays they don't loach thc real meaning of the
love of country and that it mean.-'- sac i'i Fices. 1 wish there
were but one of lny poems that could set fire to thc hearts
of men and thrill them with the glory of their nationhood."
The lips that sp ike these words an- silenced forever
but thc words themselves, together with that noble bouquet of purely Canadian poetry that is her true memorial,
will for ever enshrine Pauline Johnson in the hearts of
her countrymen and countrywomen.
Only last month eastern Canad i mourned the loss of
one of the clearest cf the nation's singers; today with
the promise of the sprins? on every ''.md, the r;>ast laments for the talented lady who has weaved a garland of
old world mystery, of native charm, of infinite tenderness
about the natural features of the lower mainland.
Like Archibald Lampman, Pauline Johnson posses! ed
the real gift of song. She cultivated and cherished it as
one who loved it because she knew its value; She was a
genuine nature lover; for her the outside world and the
lore of her father's, people were an oik:;1, book whose contents she loved to translate for her paleface friends.
Through the windows of her soul wc look upon Dead Man's
Rock, or Point Grey, not as lumps of stone or a long ridge
of fire-blackened trees, 'out as places known to a half forgotten people to whom they stood as nation;1! mem trials
or had memories of scene.-; of romance.
But Pauline Johnson has rendered a greater service
to us even than that of revealing the bueaty in the common
tilings of the world cf nature. She was a patriot through
and through, and though her strains cannot compare with
the trumpet calls that thrill through the pages of the
greatest poet of her mother's race or any other race, the
thought she expresses is the same.
Like many another child of nature, Pauline Johnson
was not overburdened with this world's goods, but the law
of compensation ran true for her as for every man or woman. She rejoiced that her message to those who may
read both now and in the days to come found a permanent
place in the literature of her country.
Her ashes may for a moment linger in the breeze off
her favorite Siwash Rock which she has taught us to look
upon as the emblem of true fatherhood, but until a new
race and another tongue is known in British Columbia,
there will be no lack of rosemary for. the memory of a
singer whose tunes shall swell with the years.
