The liy-hnv introduced by Aid; Stevens and Wliitesides to  Hiaiijjre the name of Westminster Avmiue to Main Street wjus again  ia id over awaiting definite information as to how many of the  property holders are in favor of the-elianpe. and if the council are  satisfied that a reasonable majority of the owners favor the change  Ihe by-law will pass. i.f  There can be no reasonable objection to the change, and on  the other hand there.is imieh that e������M be said in favor of it.  One strong argument is the constant confusion of Westminster  A venue with Westminster Road and|tbe inconvenience experienced  therefrom by the residents, who are ^continually having their goods  delivered to the wrong place. This, ot .course, is a source of annoyance to the storekeepers and expresajiieo as -well.  Again, it is impossible to ehaj^e the name of Westminster  Road, as it is the connecting thoroujBifare between the twin cities  of Vancouver and New WestininsteK; There has never been any  suggestion to change that street 7mp������?e, %veu by those so much  opposed to changing West^in^e^:,i%^taile:7-:-.  ������ It is claimed by those who q]ri*������e the change that " Westminster ^venue'' is an old historic n|'nie and has a majestic sound  to it, having an elevating ihrlueni^7oyer all who hear it. This  contention^ iaTVjuite readily granted %d the sentiment commended,  but the. most enthusiastic advoca^^f historic nomenclature for  streets ^111 urge that because of: it)||j|wtOjrife value or grandlucr, any  name should be used mpi-fe tha^iwi^^yet>lhis is exactly what the  action of the opponents to the chartg^wpuld lead to. They do not  wish any duplicating of names^yetr-thiiy,strenuously object to-rectr-  fyinganerror of a similar kind made by some other council.  Regarding the name "Main "Street, ithas been, objected to because it is a common name. Well* -if^ tjiiat- iaits only fault; little  objection could be taken on that ground 7; We want our main thoroughfares to have names which are easily remembered, short and'  representative of its character; TStain ;StWet would be suitable  because the street is the only one which wins directly through from  Burrard Inlet to the River. South \^ancouver has already changed  the name to Main Streiet'south;<������if Sixteenth Avenue, and it would  be exceedingly- awkward to have-two names for the. longest and  best street,in-the city. ''''%&777' "  We would suggest that while the^ matter is up. it would be  wise to make/'Main" Street the dividing- line between "east", and  ."west"-' in place of Ontario Street, which is little known in comparison to;Vjlato" Street.

Electric lineman, Avas killed  while attending to his duty rejiairing a high potential wire at  Westminster Junction.  It seems that the high power wire-was in some way out. of  order and Foreman James, who was working nearby with a gang  of men, telephoned to Lake Buntzen station to have tlie current  turned off. The man at Lake Buntzen said he would attend to it,  -whereupon the foreman?told the deceased that everything was a!]"  right, and then he (McFerren) ascended tlie pole, threw ������i ground  wire over the high power wire and got the full 40.000 volts, which  caused instant death, fearfully burning the body.  There are standing orders of the Company, so it is stated, to  the effect that no lineman shall climb a high power p������Ie until the  power has been turned off. The report states that the deceased  "neglected to do this." There seems to he some conflicting evidence  here. In one report the foreman is stated to have advised the  deceased "that all was O.K.." and in another report we hear that  the deceased "neglected to comply with the Company's orders."  It must be clear to anyone that it was unnecessary for McFerran to go himself and phone, when the foreman had already  done so. Had he done so. there would no doubt have been a "row"  right off with the foreman.  The jury brought in a verdict of "accidental death and no  blame attaching to any one."  It is rather a peculiar thing that men can be killed almost  weekly and no one is to blame.  Do our juries go into the question sufficiently? Was there  absolutely no explanation for this death? It is certain Ihe man did  not go intentionally to his doom. Is there not a defect in the system  in vogue by the Company? Is there adequate, precaution taken to  prevent such frequent occurrences? Someone or something was  to blame for that accident; who or what was it? It is worth  investigating.  CONTRACTOR M. P. COTTON  Juilding New Concrete Wharf for City of North Vancouver  Those High Power Wires Again.  There was 40,000 volts passed through the body of the victim  at Westminster Junction, That same circuit passes through Vancouver. We have a binding agreement with the B. C. Electric not  to carry more than 25.000 volts.   What about it?  Our agreement states "that within 15 feet of the high power  wires, and that a protection cradle shall be strung underneath the  high power wires and between them and other wires." The fact  is that a pair of ordinary uninsulated telephone wires are carried  on the same poles and within three feet of the high power' wires-  right through the heart of the city.    What of that also?  With, frequent deaths to the credit of these wires, and all accidental (?), it seems that an investigation would be in order.

The  seed has within it the potentialities of  the matured product and may be multiplied ad infinitum. Nature has been  very lavish with North Vancouver in  natural advantages "where every prospect pleases".  The writer was first struck with the  delightful sunny townsite slope commencing at the waterfront of Burrard  Inlet and extending towards the great  snowy caped peaks, tall pine forrests,  and magnificent canyons, which are a  few miles further back.  Second: The excellent pure cold  water, natures best drink In superabundance furnished the city by its own  waterworks.  Third: The vast experience of enterprising founders- of tbe new metropolis prior to locating there, and the  leading business men: whose sketches  and places of business appear in this  edition of the "Western Call".  Fourth: The unexcelled opportunities for homebuilders, investors and  manufactures.  the nuclei of the old world commerce  perceive in the advance of the newer  order the irresistible movement of  events, an advance intolerant of aged  infancy, before which the ancient races  must die out of the old stagnant civilization, and be borne into the life of  the"modern order, or must decline and  wither. From the foci of comeree to  the seats of authority is often but a  step, and with realization of the issues at stake the law of self-preservation will inevitably compel the self-  assirallation of the old to the spirit  and progress of the new.  As the base of the,operations In this  campaign, the Northwest discharges a  world function. .. Its ports become -  world-ports (not mere gateways of  trade and currency), but portals of  progress-doors of embarkation, whence  go forth the forces that overcome in  the contest of the ages, but which overcome to re-establish with enlarged  consciousness the organic life of the  race.  The last vantage point chosen by  Canada in commercial progress is the  new maritime city of North Vancou -  ver, to the advent of which, at the  present time, wide significance attaches. The following cursory glance at  the British Columbia littoral will in -  dlcate the most important points in the  Canadian base of operations. The International bearings of Canada's western commerce having been touched  upon, It here becomes requisite to  turn to those who have beaten their  swords into plough shears.  This Is the attitude of our great  commercial and financial enterprise  no where Is it exemplified more than  with Messrs.

Prominent among the splendid host-  .leries of our province is the beautiful  Palace Hotel of the city of North Vancouver. The magnificence of this  house in a city of this size would open  the eyes of the most fastidious Easterner. It is an elegant three story  concrete block with a handsome brick  front and a roof garden for the gods  and goddesses of Grouse Mountain to  come from the, snowy capped peaks  and mingle with the children of men  in social frteadshlp and imbibe the ex  hilarating atmosphere together in so  propitious and auspicious a city.  This large caravansary was erected  last year at a cost of considerable over  $100,000 and is an ornament and in -  vestment that adds materially to the  wealth of the new metropolis. There  are over one hundred well furnished  rooms with every modern convenience  including hot and cold water, steam  heat, electric light, electric call bells  and return, and etc. An excellent  knowledge of hotel requirements were'  shown in its construction.  This house alone is a great adver -  tisment to the city of North Vancouver  and the roof garden is 107 x 90 feet,  large enough for pulling off many  swell functions. Iteda and Andruse,  the enterprising proprietors take pride  iu providing for the hospitality, entertainment and accomodation of tht  public, and here the table would suit  an epicure. The.rates are $2.00 per  day and up and special rates to family  and regular boarders.  We therefore in this issue accord  this excellent hotel generous'mention  here as we note the leading enterprises  of North Vancouver ia this edition of  the Western Call.
