Crematory                                                                                                                                                         Report
Some time ago the Council authorized your Committee to conclude arrangements with Engle Sanitary & Cremation Co for the

[vol 4 page 168]

erection of a Crematory furnace in this City and also to obtain a site for the same in a suitable position.
In accordance with that resolution we invited Mr Engle to come to Vancouver and he arrived last Friday.
He met your Committee on Saturday and submitted plans and model for an improved furnace which will yield better results than the one which the Company tendered to build for $6000.
Though it will cost more to erect he states that the Company will give the benefit of their improved system to the City and will agree to abide by the price which they quoted.
He asks however that the Council will as the works progress make advances to the Company on account for wages and materials to an amount not exceeding $3000.00 in all and that the balance shall be held over after due trial. The furnace has worked to the complete satisfaction of the Council when it shall be paid. Your Committee think that this is a very fair and reasonable proposal and recommend it to the favourable consideration of the Council.
