Alderman Bate reported the
result of the Public meeting on
the new Electric Lighting system, and that the vast majority
were in favor of the new system
as recommended by the Mayor
and Council and that the rate
payers were all in favor of more
light and better light, especially
when the fact. became known
that there would be no increase
in taxation, the cost of the new
system being paid out of the general revenue of the City.
The Council was appointed a
committee to interview the management of the Cumberland Electric Lighting Company and
make final arrangements and enter into an agreement on the new
lighting system when completed.
The Council decided to call a special meeting to name a date for
the rate payers to vote, on the
new system of lighting, changing j
from a flat rate to a meter with
improved lights and no increase
in taxation. The Council also de
cided to extend the time of rebate
of taxes from June 30th., to Aug-
31st. All ratepayers who pay
their taxes on or before the latter
date will receive the same rebate
as though paid on June 30th.

Nelson, B. C. July 26—Premier
Bowser, this evening, completed
his series of public meetings on
his tour of the Lower Mainland,
and tomorrow will proceed to
Vancouver, being due to reach
that place on Thursday afternoon.
The Premier is highly elated as
a result of his survey of political
conditions. His personal observations and canvass of public
opinion in the various constituencies visited since the conclusion
of the session, which now includes the entire province, with the
exception of the country to the
immediate east and south of the
city of Vancouver, and the East
Kootenay district, has convinced
him that the elections of next
September will see his Government returned to power.
In all the communities visited
he has found that the people are
less interested in party politics
than they are in policies which
ensure a safe and sure development in the various industries
which form the basis of the
commercial fabrics of the different sections of the country, and
and he has found everywhere
commendation for the legislation
which he brought in life last
session and which was designed
to have that effect. Tonight's
meeting filled the Opera House
to eapicity, and at was exuberant
in its enthusiasm.
Members of the Premier's party yesterday afternoon visited
the Trail smelter and saw the
new zinc plant, the copper refinery, which will soon be in operation, copper furnaces, and silver-
lead furnaces and refinery, the
only one of its kind in Canada.
They learned of Trail's smelter's $150,000 pay roll, and that
it employed 1500 men. In the
city they saw evidences of prosr
perity in 300 new residences built
in recent months, and which
have brought building permits
up to $20,000 a week.
Members of the party also visited ranches in the district, and
were struck by evidence of agricultural development.

Mr. Brewster's Predicament.
From J.P.'s Weekly, Vancouver, B.C.
Mr. Brewster now says he
issued his writ because there was
a doubt of the legality of the sitting since March 14 last. Now
Mr. Brewster was just as free on
March 15 to issue a writ as he
was on May 31 when the house
prorogued and Mr. Brewster had
his indemnity safe in his pocket.
If Mr. Brewster felt there was a
doubt of the legality of the house
why did he not take steps on
March 15, the nextdav after the
doubt arose? Why did he sit in
the house, participate in the debates, attend committees and
vote if he thought there was a
doubt? Why did he do all these
things and not take the step
which he took after the house
had sat for nearly ten weeks after the doubt arose.
Mr. Brewster is a thrifty soul.
He sat in the house and he drew
his indemnity and besides that
the special allowance for the
leader of the opposition which
hitherto had gone to Parker
Williams. He didn't even split
fifty-fifty with Mr. Williams,
Mr. Brewster may be in doubt
about the legality of the sitting
of the house but apparently he
has no doubts about his right to
draw a double indemnity even
when it is voted during the period
of which he says there is a doubt.
Mr. Brewster is not quite frank
when he says he issued the writ
because of his alleged'doubt. The
real reason why he issued it was
on more sordid grounds, not in
the higher interests of the public.
His real motive was political and
partizan. He.hoped to tie up the
business of the province. He
hoped to make it impossible to
negotiate the loans for the carrying on of the public business and
the construction of the P. G. E.
In the early days of the writ episode the P. G. E. loan was the
main reason given and the chief
point of attack on the government, It is still a point of attack, but Mr. Biewster has
found that many of his followers
disagree entirely with his policy
in issuing the writ and also with
his policy in attacking the P. G.
E., so he has shifted his ground
and now says it was because of
the doubt of the legaity of the
bouse, and he wants the premier
to join bim in a test case before
tho courts to find out whether Mr.
Brewster's doubt is well founded.
Why should the premier make
himself as ridiculous as Mr.
Brewster has? The premier has
no doubts about the legality of
the house. Why should he then
join in Mr. Brewster's folly? It
would be nice and soft for Mr,
Brewster if the premier were to
come to his rescue by joining in
his foolish suit. It would be endorsement by the government of
Mr. Brewster and his action. It
would be an admission- by the
government that a doubt existed
where there is no doubt. But
the government has wisely decided to let Mr. Brewster "skin his

Don't Be a Knocker.
If your neighbor is prosperous,
let him prosper. Do not growl or
grumble. Say a good word for
him and let it go at that. Do
not be a knocker, If you see that
the city is moving along nicely,
feel good about it. You know
that we need more light and better light and when you know
there will be no additional taxation, and you can have an improved lighting system that will
beautify the town without costing you a cent. Vote for it and
help tr ings along. Shove a little.
Push. Try and secure some of
the benefit yourself. Do not stand
around like a cadaver. Do not
waste time feeling sore because
some fellow has a little more sand
and sense than you have. Do a
little hustling yourself.
If you can say a good word say
it like a prince. If you are full
of bile and disposed to say something mean, keep your mouth
closed.
Do not be a knocker. No man
ever became rich and happy minding anyone's business but hisown
No man ever helped himself up
permanently by knocking his
neighbors down.
Give a kind word. Giveit liberally. It will not cost a cent,
and you may want one yourself
some day. You cannot afford it.
It will not pay. There is nothing
in it.
If you want to throw something
at somebody throw cologne, or
roses. Do not throw brickbats,
or mud. If you must kick, go
behind the barn and kick yourself. For if you feel that-way
you are the man that needs kicking. But whatever you do, do
not be a knocker,
