The City Council held their regular meeting in the Council Cham
hers on Monday evening. Present
His Worship Mayor Parnham,
Aldermen Macdonald, Henderson
Brown and Banks.
The minutes of the previous
meeting were read and adopted.
A communication was received
from the J. & J. Taylor Safe
Works stating that they were
willing to take the city safe in
exchange and supply a new one.
On motion the proposition was
received and tiled pro tern.
Thos. Edwards, of Vancouver,
sent a request to the City Council
asking for a reduction in his taxes
on tlie old Islander Building
which is now in ruins from the
heavy fall of snow of last winter.
This was received and the city
clerk instructed tp notify Mr.
Edwards that his application was
loo late to be dealt with this year.
The Vancouver General Hospital informed the Council that
Mrs. Era Janonovich had been
admitted to the public ward of
that hospital and that her husband was a miner of Cumberland.
It was pointed out to tho Council
that Mrs. Janonovich was a resident of Puntledge, No. S Mine.
The managing secretary of the
Vancouver Hospital will be noti-
lied by thc city clerk that thecitj
is not responsible under Sec. 7,
Clause.'1) of the Hospital Act.
The Union of Municipalities
requested the city to supply that
body with a list of telephones,
business, residential, party line
and charges, and any other information that would be useful
in preparing a case to present to
the Board of Railway Commissioners. The city clerk was requested to give the desired information.
The following communication
was received from the manager
ol' the Cumberland-Electric Light
ing Company on the new lighting
system:
Cumberland City Council, City.
Gentlemoir We herewith enclose revised estimate for improving the City Street Lighting
system as made iu accordance
with the sentiment of the Council, as expressed in their special
meeting of the 5th., inst.
The increase in cost over the
proposal submitted on that date
is due lo  the following causes:
1. The use of a 10 in. mast
and enclosed type of ornamental
reflector, a vast impiovement over the porcelain enameled steel
type of fixture and short gooseneck, not only.in appearance but
in illuminating qualities as   well.
2. 'I'he addition of four small
Nitro fixtures on Dunsmuir avenue, of a type to conform with
the larger units.
3. The additional expense of
putting the large Dunsmuir avenue units on a separate switch,
so that they can be turned oil'
at an earlier hour than the rest
of the lights.
4. The use of an ornamental
bracket and streethood on the
side streets, instead of the plain
gooseneck and enameled steel reflector,
You will note an increase in
this estimate over the tentative
one submitted on'the 5th., with
regard to the mast arms particularly, this being due to the fact
that the present quotations were
obtained from the Cutter catalogue and were f. o. b.   South
Bend, Indiana, instead of Van-
couve- as we supposed them to
be. In addition, prices have advanced enormously since obtaining the previous quotations some
months ago- the. enclosed estimate being based on quotations
received June 10th., 1916.
We earnestly recommend the
adoption of the proposed fixtures
since their increased cost is more
thnn counterbalanced by their
very pleasing appearance, a quality lacking in the industrial type
of unit submitted previously,
We also believe the Council
will be considerably disappointed
over the illuminating qualities of
the GO Watt Nitro lamp as compared with the 100 Watt size,
since, not only will they emit less
actual light than at present, but
the distribution will not be as even, due to tie abolishment of the
intervening lamp. It may he
mentioned that the candle power
of a Nitro lamp decreases at a
greater ratio than the wattage,
due to the fact that the lamp, on
account of the smaller size of its
bulb, cannot be operated at so
high a temperature, since the
gases cool more quickly. For example, a 100 watt, Nitro lamp
emits but 70 c. p. The small extra-monthly charge of $12.93, in
our opinion, will amply justify
the adoption of the larger lamp.
The enclosed estimate on fixtures is for immediate acceptance
only since the quotations from
manufacturers are subject to revision without notice owing to
the abnormal rise in the price of
raw materials during the present
conflict.

PHONE EXCHANGE
NOW INSTALLED
Different Departments of  Canadian Collieries Head Office
Are Now Connected up.
Six months ago the hiad offices
of the Canadian Collieries (Duns
i muir), Ltd. wen removed from
j Victoria to this city. During that
j time the rebuilding and remodelling has been steadily going on,
.until today they are the most
complete and modern set of
offices on the coast, There is a
; remarkable change both in the
interiorand exterior of the building with the mail! corridor running through the centre of the
I building immediately inside the
! main entrance. Mr. Harry Wilson, local manager of the British
' Columbia Telephone company,
has justjeompleted the installation of a private branch Exchange consisting t)f eight locals
connecting up the various departments with individual telephones
including the General Superintendent, Superintendent, Paymaster, Accounting Department,
Purchasing Department, Railway Traffic and Freight Department, and Engineering Department and two trunk lines connecting with the British Columbia
Telephone Exchange, thus enabling two departments to hold a
conversation over long distance
at the one time without interfering with the immense volume of
business of the several departments. There is also a telephone
on the counter near the exchange
for the use of those having business at the office of the Canadian
Collieries without visiting any of
the departments. The switch
board of the private brunch exchange is onc of the latest type
magneto boards with self restoring drops and four pair of plugs
and cords for operating purposes.
Miss Nettie Stewart, who has
been chief operator at the British
Columbia Telephone Exchange
in this city for the past four
years, is now chief operator at
the Canadian Collieries, and commenced her new duties yesterday.
Everything has been thoroughly
tested out by the local manager
of the B. C. Telephone company
and found to be in first class
working order, which makes the
head office of the Canadian Collieries Dunsmuir Limited one of
the most modem set of ollices on
the Pacific coast. In addition to
the excellent telephone service
the whole building has been
equipped with electric heaters
throughout the corridors and
private depart menls. In cold
weather press a button and the
occupant gets all the heat desired. Press another button and llio
same office receives all   the liglil
required, (he power being supplied by Ihe Canadian Collii.i'ieH
Hydro Electric Plant lhat operates the local mines.
The loading wharves 'of the
Canadian Collieries Dunsmuir
Ltd. at Union Bay has been kepi
busy during the past week with
an increased amount of shipping
Tin' full rigged sailing ship
Golden Gate sailed from Union
Bay on Satuday with .'5500 tons
of coal for San Francisco. This
is the first sailing-ship to enter
the port of Union Bay in the
past ten years and will make
two more trips for coal. The ship
in coming from San Francisco
was in tow of tug Dauntless and
is returning in charge of the
same tug boat which is considered un advantage under the present freight rates.' During the
week the following vessel  have

Big Profits in Hotel Investments.
Hotel investments in most parts
of Canada, and particularly in
Ontario, have depreciated very
much in value owing to the spread
of prohibition, and many owners
are in despair.
But there is no need for this.
On the other hand a new and
much better era should now open.
Hotel keeping has proved to be,
and may, in Canada, be made
one of the most profitable and
reputable of businesses. It is
the most promising field for business development we know of
today for ambitious, capable
young men.
The trouble is that our hotels
have been conducted on the
wrong lines. The bar has been
regarded as the chief object.
Most hotel keepers have not been
business men but liquor handlers
Lodgings ami food have been
merely an incident. Some of
them expected to lose money on
their tables. The wastefulness
was appalling yet the supplying
of good food and good accommodation is one of the most profitable businesses in the world today.
In Canada it has been more or
less of a disgrace to be associated
with or even seen in an hotel.
In Europe and the United States
some of the richest and most
prominent families socially are
investing and naming hotels after themselves and the hotel is
becoming a social centre.
The most successful hotel-keep
ers are men who began in the
kitchen and dining room; who
learnt the business from that end.
The Ritz Hotel in Paris is probably the finest in the world today.
Mr. Ritz, when the writer first
knew him, had just been promoted to assist in the management
of the Savoy Hotel, London. The
present general manager of the
Ritz, Mr. Ellis, was his head waiter. Like so many successful caterers thev are both of Swiss
birth. Geo. C. Boult, of the Waldorf-Astoria and other big hotels
in the States, is the largest hotel
owner in the world, with a net
income of over a million; perhaps
a couple of millions a year. He
worked his way up from the
kitchen. Fred Sterry, manager
of the Plazas and other big American hotels, also worked his
way up thfoug'h all departments.
The department of which these
men know least in their business
is the bar.
It is not only the big hotels
that, have been marvellously successful wheu managed by men
of capacity who learnt the business from the ground up, and
who have developed executive
ability, hut some of the small hotels have been remarkably profitable. We know of one hotel, in
a town of only 17,000, managed
by a man who began, wren a
boy, cutting meat in the kitchen
of a big city hotel. Asa result
of clean food and clean, perfectly
appointed rooms and efficient
management, the profits of his
house have steadily crept up until, in 1915 they reached $50,000.
Today the building is being near-

ly doubled in size to meet the demand for good service. So little
does this manager think of his
new bar that in his new building
he is putting it in his basement,
as he is satisfied that in a very
short time liquor selling will be
eliminated.
Investors in hotel properties
should deal with them as a manufacturing and retailing proposition. Manage, or have them
managed, by experienced business men. Give a quality service, advertise it and build a
reputation just as a manufacturer does for his name or trade
mark. The traveling and local
public will flock to them.—McLean's Magazine.

Not Good   Looks
Little Lillian's father, by any
stretch of Imagination, could not be
called good looking, and one day, after
gazing Intently at bim, she turned to
her mother and propounded the query:
"Mamma, why did you marry papa?"
"Because  1   loved   him,  dear."   was
the reply.
Lillian looked surprised.
"Love will make us women do auy-
thing, won't It, mamma?" she said.

"My father came In for some money
last week."
"Ves. I know. Mr came iu for a
