Mr* 8©aten reported that he and Mr* Goldie had interviewed Mr* ]|i
Howard of th© frusta and Guarantee Company and while the
conversation wa© informal, a© a result it was felt justifiable to
have Mr. Grove© make a preliminary survey cf the feasibility of
increasing the dam at leaver Lake* Mr. Grove© report had been
read to the General Meeting of September 22nd.
Mr. J* H* Aberdeen wa© del ©gated to interview the Manager of the
Canadian Bank of Commerce a© to th© possibility of the Bank
advancing the necessary money to pro©ted with th© work at Boaver
take in the ev©nt of the Governs© nt Commissioner not recommending
a loan from the Coao©rvutl©m Fund;  if the Bank would advance th©
mon©y under the©© condition© the plan would be to retire the loan
by a tax levy in probably two year©.
Q
A  discussion a© to what attitude the Trusts©© should take in the
©vent of the Irrigation Company ©ndeavoring to colleot from th©
Gr©w©r© th© cost of the By-pa©© construe tod thl© past summer to
©envoy water to Duck Creek* It wa© pointed out that the Trust©©©
when they were considering th© construction ©f ©uoh a By-pass had
in mind a temporary structure estimated to cost about $2500*
whexea© the Company had built a permanent work, at cost supposed
to b© in the neighborhood of $10,000* without in any way
consulting the Trusteta or the water User©. It wa© also mentioned
that th© construction of the By-Pa©© enabled th© Company to
collect toll© ©a th© quantity of water which wa© saved by this
work (estimated at 500 acre feat making a rer^nno  of $1800.) and
had the U&er©, through th© District, constructed the work, they
would have expected this revenue to be taken into account In
the rate© they ©hould pay the company for conveying water* The
reeling of the Trustees wa© that they should assume no liability
for work© of the nature constructed by the Company, and that it
is, In any event, doubtful if the Tru©tee© would have power t©
bind the individual uoera on a question of thi© kind*
Mr* Se ton ©ugge©t#d that in the exp©©ted conference next month
with Mr* Warren and the Comptroller, It would be well if one of
the Trustees should act a© spokesman, and proposed that Mr. Gold!©
act in this capacity*
Mr* Goldlo wa© delegated to interview Mr* De Wolff a© to tho
forthcoming confereno©"with Mr* warren and the Comptroller,
particularly in tlif mat tor of the dam at Beav©r Lake*
The Trust©©© discussed- the method to b© followed in the event
of proceeding with the dam at Beaver lake,i.e. whether to call
for tenders or to aaa appoint a superintendent and do the work
without a contract; no action was taken on thi© ©ubjset, pending
the result of the conference with the Company official©. The
oubjeot of paying A. Clark for th© use of the road to Beaver Lak©
wa© also considered, and the Trustee© expressed their willingness
make a reasonable arrangement with Mr.Clark without prejudice
to their legal right©* Trustee©, 3ept*29th Q)0    (2) • >-s

Boa©ley in the matter of the nation of th© District Engineer
