The city council held their regular meeting in the council
chamber last Monday night, with
several of the citizens present,
who, during the proceedings of
the evening, gave vent to their
feelings in no unmistable manner.
While some of the aldermen seemed to take it in good part, others
were offended at the unparliamentary sayings of those present, and
for a few moments it seemed as
though the mayor would have to
bring down his gavel and call for
order. There were present: His
Worship the Mayor, Aid. Banks,
Beveridge, Campbell, and Willard. The mimutes of the previous regular and special meetings
were adopted as read by the city
clerk. The following accounts
were presented and referred to
the finance committee.

Aid Willard, asoneof the committee on Finance, reported that
at the request of the Royal Bank
they had circulated a second petition for the cement pavement,
which had been signed and forwarded to their head quarters at
The sidewalk in front of the
Post Office was the next question that came up for consideration under the heading of deffer-
red business. The city clerk
stated that he had received no
further communications than
those already read from W. Henderson, the Resident Archetect at
Victoria, and the Dominion Representative for this district.
Aid Beveridge suggested that the
correspondence be dealt with
when the council received further information,   but he pointed

pavement in charge that there
was nothing to stop them from
tearing up lho sidewalk in front
of the Post Offlice. Aid Willard,
said it was only :i point as to who
should pay for tearing up and replacing, the city or the Dominion
With reference I" tbe wiring of
the City Hull, the citj clerk reported that the cost was in be
divided between lie City and P.
Anderson, the proprietor of lhe'
moving picture show. The cltj V,
portion of the cost \vas referred j
to the finance committee!
Aid Campbell reported that hei
had not seen the chairman of the'
board of woiks during the I;si
week, and up to the present they
had done nothing1 in the matter of,
purchasing a horse for city use.!
Considerable discussion tookl
place concerning Dr McNaugti-
ton's account for attending an in-l
digent patient amounting to $10.1
This patient was taken to the hospital some time ago through an
illness caused by excessive drinking. The mayor stated that somebody had informed him that .he
man was sick and ordered him tc;
the hospital, but 1 at! oi der d no
doctor to attend him. The aldermen thought the best way to
settle the case would be to refer
the account back to Dr McNaughton for further explanation,
Others said the man was an invalid and could not work and
should be sent to the Old Mans'
Home or some place where he
would be taken care of. It was finally decided to refer the bill back
to the doctor. The mayor remarked
that seeing there was quite an
audience present, which is something unsual at a meeting of the
council, he would ask if any one
wished to say anything. Acting
City Engineer Kennedy said he
understood the contract for the
pavement had not been signed by
the contractor and thought it
should be signed before any more
work was done on the street. The
mayor informed the city engineer
that the matter would be attended to.
James Smith asked the
council if they were going to allow the contractor to work his
men.nine hours for $3.oo per day.
Smith thought the council should
see the men worked eight hours
only. The mayor informed him
that he did not know the circuni-
of the case, but they would consider it.
Albert Pifikard addressed
the mayor concerning the sidewalks, that they were torn up
from 5th. street to 2nd. street,
and asked if the public had to pul
up with such Inconviqnces as ex
isted on Dunsmuir avenue to-day,
Rotten planks were strewed u-
round, with no approaches to the
various places of business,
A heated discussion ensued in
which some very impleusant remarks were passed.
The mayor stated lo lay a
new sidewalk we must tear up
the old one flrBt.
The board of work.", were instructed to dispose of the planks
from the old sidewalk as they
thought best.
It appeared that Frank Dallos
had paid a widow's taxes into tin
city treasury who was unable to
pay them herself. The city cler
was instructed to refund the a-
mount paid by Mr Dallos.
Aid Banks informed the council that the Edwards property on
Dunsmuir avenue should be drained. When tearing up the old
sidewalk the odour therefrom
was something awful and nothing
but a cess pool. Aid Beveridge
stated that there was no drain to
Kilpatrick's stable and that ii
was nothing but a cess pool in the
I middle of the city. The Sanitary Inspector said these two
! places should be attended to at
1 once.
| The board of works were instructed to put in drains and

R. Grant &Co'i. Sawmill

Total Lou
Last Monday, about midnight,
the lire bell rang out and locomotives blew their whistles which
gave the alarming information
that Grant and Mounce's sawmill
was on tire. In a short space of
time crowds were seen running
from all directions. The Volunteer Fire Brigade responded
promptly and poured two streams
of water upon the burning building. The fire however made
headway and the firemen directed their energies to saving the
surrounding building and piles of
lumber, in which they were successful.
The origin of the fire is not
known but it is supposed to have
started in the boiler room.
The suw and planing mills are
totally distroyed. $25,000 is the
estimated loss, with no insurance.
The destruction of the sawmill
by fire at this time of the year
will retard Cumberland's progress. Several buildings under
construction are waiting for
material. Even when the mill
was running it was not able to
keep up with the demand.
Mr Peters, of The Warn Land
& Financial Co., of Nanaimo, was
successful in placing the Bently

Council Chamber last Wednesday
night. His Worship the Mayor
occupied the chair, and there
were present about twenty of the
most prominent business men in
The secretary read a communication from the Saturday Sunset
of Vancouver offering to give
Cumberland a write-up. After
careful consideration the Board
thought it advisable to defer
action until a later date when the
sidewalks would be finished and
the buildings now under construction completed, which would
give the city an improved appearance.
The commitee, appointed to
draftrules and regulations governing the board, reported that
they had completed the by-laws
and were ready to present them.
They were read and finally adopted with minor amendments.
The following officers, who
were elected pro tem at the first
meeting, were confirmed:—
President, Mayor J. McLeod
Vice-President.. W. E. Lawrence
Treasurer D. M. Morrison
Secretary Edward W. Bickle
Council: W. T. White, Thos. E.
Bate, Wesley Willard, Alex Maxwell and A. E. Shepherd.
W. S. Lawrence gave a report
of the interview he had had with
H.S. Clements, M.P,, Dominion
representative for this district,
witah whom he was asked to continue his good work. He was
called upon to make arrange
ments for a deputation of the
board^to interview Mr. Thomas
Holt, executive agent of the
Canadian Northern Railway, as
to the proposed route for that
railwayi through Cumberland.

What might have been a terrible disaster occurred on the
lake when the S.S. Silver Tip, in
charge of Skipper Barney, was
proceeding on her usual week end
fishing trip to Cruickshanks.
When in the vicinity of Pie
Creek the Silver Tip refused to
go, and on the skipper investigating he found that the S.S.
had sprung a leak and the water
had put the engine out of commission It was at this moment
that the skipper showed his
British courage. We have read
in history what Nelson said at
the battle of Trafalgar, what
Colonel Mathias said to the Gordon Highlanders at the battle of
Dargai Heights, what Captain
Smith said to the passengers and
crew of the Titanic, but it remained for the skipper of the Silver
Tip to show that we have men in
our midst who have that same
courage when he shouted: "Get
out the oars, boys, we are sinking." The crew sprang to their
posts but, alas to relate, before
they reached shore the boat began
to sink. As the crew sprang for
a log and left the skipper on the
sinking S.S. it was then that
history repeated itself; as the
"Tip" was disappearing out of
sight, the band playing "Why
did I leave home?" the gallant
captain gave his last order (to
the crew) "Save ME, to h—
with the boat" Dick got the
skipper by the silvery locks and
pulled him to safety, for which
he is entitled to the Carnegie
Hero Medal. A wrecking" crew
has succeeded in raising the Tip,
which is prepared to make her
week end trips; but is not going
to carry any more bug juice nor
anyone who buys their boots in
theoid country, but Diver Hardy
will always be welcome.
The board of trade has at least
obtained some results. We understand Muyor McLeod, has received a conmunication from Mr. R.
B. Mickiag, the executive agent
for the B.C. Telephone Co., that
commencing ■ on the first day of
September an all night service
will be established, at Cumberland and Courtenay, with a resident manager at each place.

Rate ot Growth Studied In Canada and
United States
Tha aspen poplar, frequently spoken of as the wliite poplar, is one of
the most common trees all over Canada (at any rale in that portion'of
tlio Dominion east of the Kocky
Mountains). In many parts of the
Dominion it forms quite extensive forests (especially In districts that have
been burned over). This fact gives
,t a place of some importance in the
forestry of lhe Dominion, although it
is one ot the inferior woods.
Some years ago (in lHOfil the Forestry Brunch of the Department of
I'te Interior made a careful survey of
the Turtle Mountain forest reserve in
Southern Manitoba, on which this
poplar is by all odds the most plentiful tree. As u result of investigation
on the basis of data collected during
Mils BUrvey, it was estimated that, if
the poplar were allowed to grow to
lbo age of forty years, tliere wpuld be
an average growth, for the whole of
that time, of one cord per year on a
fully stocked acre. At the end of
that timo lliere would be standing on
each acre about 850 trees, of an average height of if, feet and an average diameter, at tVi feet above the
ground, of 6 inches; these would yield
some 40 cords of wood.
Recently the Dulled States Forest
Service published their Bulletin No.
98, entitled "The Aspens." and It is
interesting to note that their results
come closo to the ligures made out by
Ihe Canadian survey. Volume tables
given at the conclusion of this bulletin show that trees of the height and
diameter given above will eacli yield
between one twentieth and one twenty fifth of a cord of wood apiece. Thus
the 850 acres would give somewhere
between thirty-four and forty-two
cords of wood. Tho average of the
two amounts gives thirty-eight cords,
a figure nearly the same as that obtained by the Canadians.
As there are 55,000 acres In the
Turtle Mountain reserve that are callable of growing timber, it is a reasonable Inference that the reserve
may bo counted on to produce 55.000
cords, or thereabouts, of wood per
year. At the low rate of $1 per cord
on the slump, this would mean an annual revenue to the stato uf $55,000.
Or. to take unolhor point nf viow It
would give to each Inhabitant of the
elecioilal disirict. of Sourls almost
two cords of wood per yoar.

What the Editor has to say.
The very unfortunate fire whioh occurred at R. Grant 4
|A>.'l sawmill on Monday night has caused considerable coin-
went among the residents of this city and district during the
last two or three days. The fact that the Canadian Collieries
(Dunsmuir) Ltd. have their powder magazine situated just out
•iide the city limits has been brought more vividly before the
eyes of the public than it ever has been at any time before, and
judging from the statements that one hears on the street, the
time has come for its removal, or otherwise some day we may
Jiave to chronicle a terrible disaster. Within one hundred yards
of, the scene of last Monday night's terrible fire, is the company's magazine where there is stored a quantity of dynamite
io supply the demands of the various mines. Immediately
•cross the tracks from the scene of the fire stands the company's
mnc shed, where the miners receive their daily supply of pow
dfer. Four hundred yards from the former, which is the maga
line proper and where is stored an untold quantity of dynamite,
itands the Cumberland Public School, and about six hundred
yards from the same magazine is the centre of the city. In the
ttent of an explosion at this magazine, which is liable to
^eeur at any moment, for we have read enough about
the treacherous nature of this powder, its effects would be beyond description. Imagine the effect it would have upon the
•iehool, which, if such explosion occurred during school hours,
might be disastrous to the lives of many of the little ones. We
do not know how much dynamite is stored in this magazine at
one time, but we understand the Company receives it in car
load lots, which may be twenty tons. The explosion which
j occurred here some four years ago was the result of one case of
.dynamite exploding. What would be the result if twenty tons
of it were to explode?
The citizens of this city have made repeated attempts to
remedy this grave menace to the safety of Cumberland. At
'■ the time Mr. Frank Little was general manager here for the
Wellington Colliery Co., he was asked over and over again to
have that magazine removed from our midst, but it still stands
there, seemingly impregnable. The Development League a I
one time made an attempt to have it removed, then at the Citi
sens' League meetings and the dty Council the matter was
threshed out, yet without any avail.
We understand that the provincial authorities have the
natter in hand now, and we hope that measures will be taken
•t once to have it removed. The Attorney-General should be
made acquainted with the facts as they exist, and bis department would undoubtedly relieve the situation.
We are told there were men at last Monday night's fire
' with stout hearts and ready to face danger at any time who
- were apprehensive lest the excessive heat might cause the boilers to blow up and the concussion explode the powder magazine. It is hoped that after the lesson given the Colliery coin
pany from the fire they will realize the immediate danger
of having their magazine in such close proximity.

of Lord Amptliill, and is a slightly
remoter kinsman of the Marl of Lytton. But the younger of the two Pickering lords—Lord Somers—is a full-
fledged hereditary legislator; and a
descendant.of-one of tiie most famous
of Lord Chancellors. He. is duly entitled taothi to speak and to vote itl
the Houae of Lords. However, if,
when the Home Rule bill reaches that
bourne whence so many' Liberal travelers, in the shape of contentious bills,
return rejected, his voice or vote is
required in connection with it, he will
have to be fetched, like Cincinnatus
from the plow. But he'will probably
go leas willingly. Kor Lord Hyde told
the writer that both of them meant to
giut in eighteen months, at all events,
on their term at Pickering before they
went home to England for a holiday.
It should, perhaps, be mentioned,

"Well, I just kept on using everything that f

advised to try Cuticura Ointment. I did so,
tnd I found afler a few applications the
burning sensations were disappearing, t could
sleep well, and did not bave tny itching
during tbe night. I began after a while to
use Cuticura Soap. I stuck to the Cuticura
treatment, tnd thought If I could use other
remedies for over seven yeai. with no result,
tnd after only having t few applications and
finding ease from Cutli'iira Ointment, It

Did Not Ring Out Independence, Says
Joseph JnckBon, Philadelphia historian, comes forward with a statement
that the old cracked bell which is
treasured as an historic relic iti Independence Hall was not used ln proclaiming liberty throughout the land
Jackson declares that the thousands
who came yearly to Independence
Hall to view the old alleged mouthpiece of newly-born liberty were imposed on. Mr. Jackson then takes up
the alleged ringing of thc bell nnd the
claim that it proclaimed liberty on
July 4. 1776. So far as he has been
able to discover after years of re-
ssarch, this misleading statement Ib
directly traceable to "Watson's Annals
of Philadelphia." which was published
In 1830. Prior tn the publication of
that work the bell was known as the
State house bell and not Liberty bell,
and nothing had been said about its
use in proclaiming independence. Even
as late us 1830 it was known as the
State House bell even after that building had ceased to be the assembly and
title had passed to Philadelphia.

Body Cells and Foods
The cells of our body never learn
what the character of the food which
we eat really Is." With this sentence delivered at a recent meeting
of Swiss men of science, Professor
Emll Abmen has concisely defined a
modem viewpoint of nutrition which
ls rapidly becoming prominent. Before
they leave the alimentary tract the
foodstuffs which we eat arc broken up
Into fragments thut serve as the real
food of the body. Complex carbohydrates are resolved Into sugar; fats
are spilt Into glycerol and fatty acids;
proteins yield an aggregation of char
noteris.lc substances simple "building
stones" at the disposal of Uie Internal
tissue cells so that they can select
or further rearrange tlieiu as the
special functions require. Whether
It Is meat or cereals that we eat is,
after all, largely a matter of indifference, for they all furnish similar digestion fragments, so long as the digestive processes perform their duty.
The Dangers of a Great City
A young man who had been born
nnd reared in the backwoods went to
Chicago and made a lot of money.
Then he returned to his native village and asked his father to take a
trip to the Windy City. The old
man. however, was not enthusiastic
over the proposition He had read
of the fires, automobile accidents, and
other catastrophies In big cities.
Finally, after much argument and
persuasion on the part of his son,
the father reluctantly agreed to undertake the Journey. At the little
country station he was panic-stricken
and tried to get permission to go back
home. Once on the train, his nerve
began to revive, and all went well
until the train dashed into a tunnel
black as night. When this happen
ed, the old man grabbed his umbrella, hit his Bon a whack ou the head
and cried out:
I knew something would happen-
I've gone blind.
Good and Bad Humor
Slnco both are very much under our
own control, we cannot escape the
responsibility If we more frequently
display the latter than the former.
There Is no disposition more comfortable to oursolves or more agreeable
to others than good humor.
It ls to the mind vhat good health
Is to tho hotly. II. gives us the capacity to enjoy everything that is
pleasant in life and of using every
faculty without impediment. Good
humor disposes us lo contentment
with our position, to sympathy with
the distressed and to kindness to nil.
I cannot concelvo a person naturally
good-humored being unkind.
Good humor enables us to look at
things in the most favorable light and
to avoid giving or taking offence. Had
humor Is ciuite suflicient to mako anybody unhappy; it tinges everything
with Its own dismal color, aud, like
a sore place on one's arm it is hurt
by everything thut touclies it. It
takes offence where none was meant,
and creates a spirit of general discontent and unhappluess.
If He Didn't
The nervous gentleman was perfectly certain he. was ln the wrong
train. He had asked many, many
times, but then, porte'-i are not "'■
ways reliable. There might bo a mistake. For the last tliuu as the Haul
steamed slowly out, he shouted to a
porter standing by: Porter, does this
train stop at Glasgow Central? The
porter hesitated an Instant, then, running alongside tho moving train, he
gurgled—Woll, lf It doesn't, look out
for the biggest bump you've ever had
1 ln yer life!
A Double-Barreled Escape
Miners are among the most heroic
people In tho world. Danger ia always beside them, and they are
schooled to believe* that at
any time they will come face to face
with death. The result of this is
that they are humorous ln tbeir boldness.    1
In one of the mines of Pennsylvania tliere was a cave-In which imprisoned a miner named Jack Thornton. The accident happened on Friday afternoon, and the fellow laborers of the entombed men set to work
nt once to dig him out. It was not
until Sunday morning, however, that
thoy reached his prison chamber, and
by thiB time they wero wondering
whether he had been suffocated or
starved to death. One of them
stuck his head 'through the aperture
made by the picks of the resucers
and called out:
Jack, ho you all right?
All right, came the reply, and then
after a pause, What day is this?
Sunday, answered Ihe friend.
Gee! exclaimed Jack. I'm glad nf
that. That was one Saturday night j
when those saloon keepers didn't get

referred to his watch so frequently
that the examiner again grew suspicious. Suddenly an idea struck him.

the examiner seized the watch, but
this time lie devoted his attention to

there was a scrap of paper Inside.

To Reform Fashion
Fashion ls a shy bird, and nn observant critic has noticed that tailors
are not advising tho frock coat'and
fancy waistcoat, which are becoming
unpopular becauso Mr. Sneddon was
io dressed In the dock. The passing
of the frock coat will be welcomed by
many, and by many who do not remember the execution of Mrs. -Manning In 1849, who swung in black satin, and made that material unfashionable for many years. There is an
opening for reformers who wish, to
change the fashlous and are willing
to go to the stake for tlieir belief.
One can forsee a woman who will
commit a murder iq order tn be hanged ln a hobble skirt, so that tbere shall
ho no more hobble skirts In tho fashionable world. And the enthusiastic

donkey and die in leather boots, with
the Idea of bringing vegetablo boots

consent to wear the wrong clothes on
the right occasion.—London Chronicle.
