Water and Electric Light
Question Discussed
On Thursday evening last a
largely attended meeting was convened in the opera house by the
Courtenav Water Company, for the
purpose of discussing the question
of supplying water and electric light
for Courtenay.
Mr, Bruce Towler was appointed
chairman, and l>r. Millard briefly
outlined the proposals of the company, ami their reasons win the
citizens should not oppose the
company laying the mains and
getting the water record,
Ur. Orontplon spoke for the objecting  citizens,   slating  that   the
franchises should  be  held   by the
citizens as they were anxious to Incorporate,    He quoted the Cumberland situation, where lhe company
[ collects $ 10,700 annually from the
I citizens, and the cost was $2,500,
leaving   a   profit   of  **W,200,    The
Klectric Light Company wascapital-
J i/.ed at $50,000 and paid a dividend
[of 17 percent,   [f Courtenay owned these utiltiestlie rale of taxation
1 .would be very low.
Colin Campbell said we should
[Incorporate at once, as there was
about 1000 acres of hind to be taken
in which was worth an average of
$1,000 per acre. Some laughed at
this, but it is true nevertheless.
Several corners have been sold lately
at $1,250, two are held at $5,000,
and, there isn't a lot inside the
proposed district that can be bought
for less than $250, and there is nu
average of 8 lots to the acre.
Mr. McPhee said Cumberland
was pout, and had large schools to
keep up nnd could not liny the
companies out. Wouldn't it be
better lor all to join bauds and lu-
corporote at once, nml build the
Water and Electric Light works
for Courtenay. He was prepared
to lend money aud would be a large
user of water, but would oppose to
ih: utmost the efforts of any private
company to secure control of these
Dr, Millard said Mr. McPhee and
others in the lower part of the town
were opposed to the company because they had plenty of water for
their lawns and baths, while those
higher up had none, except what
they got out of their wells.

Mr. McPhee said be sympathised
with those higher up as they doubtless did not have as much water as
thoie on the lower level. Had a
lot of property here and would be
willing to take water and pay for it,
and wanted to know what about
the chemical engine.
Dr Millard said there would lie
no dividends tor two or three years
and that the company would he
obliged to sell to the town at an
advance of 30 per cent on cost, as
fixed by arbitration, and that they
had a supply of ,5 cubic feet per
second, which would supply a city
of 15,000.
Mr, I larrisou said that arbitrators
usually placed the very highst value
possible on anything thev could.
Mr llodsou corroborated him,
aud said the stream which the
company proposed taking passed
through his farm, and through his
neighbors' as well, and they needed
the water just as badly as did Courtenay, aud didn't intend lo let the
company have it if at all possible.
A motion was passed to the effect
that this meeting was opposed to
allowing the company to get the
water record, and supplying Courtenay with water and light.
Mr. Fechner was very sorry to
see the people putting them down
as a lot of crooks and grafters; said,
they wanted everyone to take stock
in the company.
Dr. Millard said nothing would
hurt Courtenay more than an outbreak of fever, which might occur
if we did not secure a supply of
pure water,
Mr. McPhee said he was still of
the opinion that we should incorporate at once and build our own
water works and electric light plant.
We only had to have 100 male
citizens who owned 50 per cent of
the value of the taxable property in
order to do so.
At this stage the company got
together and Mr. Fechner said that
all they wanted was water, and
proposed that all citizens take stock
ard sell it at par to the city when

The    symptoms    of   Impoverished

; "For  about  eighteen   months  1  was |
���In  a  very  bad  state  of  health  and I
thoroughly run down.     I had no appetite and suffered from most of the j
; symptoms of anaemia.    I  went to al

i from him for three months,  and al-!
though   I  took  bottle  after  bottle  of
medicine 1 was steadily growing worse,
j and 1 got so down-hearted    and   de-j
pressed that I felt I would never get!
better.    At this time I read the case!
| of a young lady whose symptoms were ]
��� similar to mv own, who had been cur-'
ed by Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, and I
decided to try  them.      By the time!
I  had  used  three boxes  my  appetite
had improved and I was feeling morel
encouraged.      I continued the use of!
the Pills for a time longer and my I
health was fully restored."

In regard to the sale of SANOL ami

tin about three months. I was
obliged io put In SANOL'S ANTl-

and whom, I believe, has sent .1 testimonial to your office. Another customer ordered SANOI, and t was
obliged to stock it. This gentleman
was sn wi'll satisfied that h. has sent
bottleB to his friends. Up to
this time 1 had never really taken
much interest in the preparations, but
when customer after customer would
come In and tell us about what SANOL had done for them I came to the
conofuslon It would be worth my
while getting behind SANOL and re.
commending it to my customers.
This I have done, and t have heard
nothing but words of praise for SANOI. and recommending it to my customers, This I have dour-, and I

The Link That Binds
Fifty clergymen of every denomination called at the Slate Department and meed Secretary Bryan
to take the leadership of what
they hope will prove the greatest
interdenominational Bible Class in
the world. Mr. Bryan has been
much in demand by religious organizations since he took office, so
far he has   made   no promises,   but
he, as wi 11 as the President and
Vice-President, are active church
members, and any of them can aud
will preach a sermoil, lead a prayer meeting or teach a Bible class.
Religion is not only the moral link
that binds man closer with his
Ood, but with his fcllowman and
it speaks well for any nation when
it lias such christian gentlemen at
the head of its afiirs. It has been
said that one's personal value depends upon their possession of religion. One is worth to society
what they are capable of imparting
and tho man whose aims are low
who has in his heart no adoration
of God, whose will is not subordinate to the supreme will, cannot
be worth very much to himself or
to society. There is every reason
in a Christian country why all of
our public servants should stand
for Christianity, and we are glad
these men are making their influence as potential for good as possible.

There's a moaning in the woods
And some poor devil's down,
So hail a passing rig
And take him into town.
There's a groaning on the road,
And some good comrade crys
Oh, get a move on, friend,
Be quick, before he dies!
There's a gaping crowd in town,
The doctor's right on hand
To help the sufferer out
And make for Cumberland.
There's a swiftness in the speed,
Aud all the road's ahead,
There's fighting to be done,
My God! too late, he's dead.
There's a rich man here and  there
With land, in lots, to sell,
He's waiting for his price,
And lots are cheap���in Hell! 1
There's abundance in the land
And uo one wants for bread
And shall the purse be held
Until the sufferer's dead?
There's a lurking death around
And who shall be his prey?
Young, old, or rich, or poor?
May help be near that day.
Who succors on earth My sheer),
Who helps without a fee,
But just for love--tho.se are they
Who do it unto Me.

The west is still the place for the
young, the ambitious and the enterprising. Nothing is further
from the truth than the idea that
opportunity went with the placer
gold, The pioneers had only two
chances, mining and merchandising
while, to-day, we have a thousand.
Too much population may be as
bad as too little. Certainly the
east is becoming more and more
like the conjested parts of Europe
where only genius or exceptional
luck lifts a man out of the ruck.
The average man stays where he
was born, or perhaps drops a peg.
