A communication was read
from Deputy Sheriff R. T. Evans
saying that he had served his oonneotion with the Singer Sewing
Maohine company and that he waB
willing to collect the dog tax,
sanitary and other rates of the oity
for a fifteen per oent consideration.
Referred first to the Board of
Works for consideration.
An answer was reoeived from $*.*
RosBland Light company stating
that for four and a half years they
had supplied an average of GO
watts per sixteen candle power
lamps, whereas their contract only
called for 55 watts. They had
been supplying 20 candle power.
Lately they admitted that owing
to have to supply the White Bear
with power the regulation had not
been good but tbis would soon be
rectified. On the other hand the
company complained that people
would burn their lamps continuously and as the life of the lamp
waB only 600 hours, though they
would burn longer, after this time
the lamps might only give six
candle power. The company
prayed the help of the ocunoil to
amend this praotioe.
A letter was received from a
firm of Vancouver offering to audit
the books of the Lightidg oompany
for a certain sum. The letter was
was not read as it contained a bid
while other bids had not as yet

In connection with this it was
stated that the Lighting oompany

sworn statement of tbeir receipts
and expenditures and tbe City
Council tbo whole of May to audit
the books.
Lioence Inspector Long reported
that he had notified Manager

tbat no performance would be allowed in the Opera House until
such time as the oilier appointed
I by tbe council, R. W. Griger, had
reported on the building. Thia
Mr. Grigor had not done, he understood, because there were certain
alterations be would recommend

no news haa been reoeived here

where the movements of the opposing forces are evidently confined to

Port Said, Maroh 16.—The Russian armored oruiser Demitri Don-

the Inspector's reading of the bylaw was that it only covered
theatres and musio halls.
Aid. Rolt objected to having it
said that he discriminated against
anybody and asked tbat the City
Solioitor be asked for his written
opinion as to the meaning of the
bylaw.   This was agreed to.
The question of the typewriting
of the bylaws was then brought
up.
Aid, MoDonald deolared he had
not ordered the bylaw being type
written and thought the ohange
excessive.
Aid. Martin said he had not
ordered tbem. He thourght they
were to be $10 only, He though
that if anybody should pay it
should be Mr. .Winn. Aid. Rolt
had received a copy.
Aid. Rolt Baid he had received a
oopy from the hands of Aid. Stout.
He had asked who ordered them
and was told by Aid. Stout that
he had better enquire of Aid. McDonald. He had done so but was
told by that gentleman that he
knew nothing about it. The matter was then referred to the
Fir. anoe Committee.
Aid. MoDonald complained that
the inaurance men were not paying
their licences.
Lioenoe Inspeotor Long, deolared
that he waa paying particular attention to the insurance agents.
Three of theBe had paid. The
fourth refused and would probably
be proseouted.
Aid. McDonald said it was useless to colleot the tax from one
and not from another.
Inspeotor Long wanted to knew
who had not been approached for
payment. He took the asaeention
as a reflection on himself. Aid.
McDonald denied he wish to cast
any reflection but insisted on every
man paying.
The matter then dropped.
The oity solioitor was instructed
to proceed against all .people who
owed arrears of the water rate.
The question was then discussed
aa to whether the 500 inohes record
on Trail record should be taken as
it is.
/Id. Hamilton thought that the
water would be increased in the
future.
The City Solicitor was of the
opinion that the taking of the record as it stood would prevent
over reoord by others of any possible surplus.
The queation was referred to the

The Rossland Juniors are very
muoh worked up over their game
with Nelson on   Friday   evening
next and as the boys will doubtless put up an excellent game they
should be encouraged.   It is from
tbe ranks of the boys   Rossland
should look for its   material  for
hockey players ol the firat rank.
There is an excellent riuk here and
when    it   is   opened  early    in
the season, plenty   of opportunity
for   practice.     There    are  three
teams in Rossland just  now, seniors,   intermediates   and   juniors.
This is the way in whioh legitimate   hookey   will   be   promoted.
There is a little tendency to rough
play which should be frowned upon by tbe referee, whoever he may
be.   But the juniors so far have
not been publicly guilty of  thia
practice, and ' if they   were  they
were but following the example of
thoBe older than themselves.
Every lover of true sportsmanship should make an endeavour to
eee the game. The Roseland lineup ie aB follows:
E. Stanaway, centre.
J. Trezona, rover.
A. Braden (oaptain) right wing.
O. Demuth, left wing.

DUTY
The Ottawa government has
made a distinctly good score injtak
ing off the duty on petroleum when
imported for concentrating purposes
and it is a step that will infallibly
earn it the good will of the mining
lection of the community, and as
all sections of the community are
directly or indirectly interested iD
mining, that goodwill .will be far
reaching. The effect of the duty ie
to lower the price of oil five cents.
The Canadian manufacturers air
selling it for 13 oents but will now
have to come down orjthe oil makers in the United States will come
below them in prioe. The next
thing is to obtain a reduotion io
freight rates which are charged by
the C. P. R., whioh are at present

which has long sinoe been paid.
Eaoh member of the Btore alone
had the right to deal there, The
store charged just enough for itB
goods to pay for them and the coBt
of management. { Anything more
went into an extension of capital
to put into the business. The idea
was not to make profits but to let
each perBon make their own profits
by dealing" at a "Btore which had no
profits to make for any individual
person or company ol shareholder.
This is the essence of the Socialistic
proposal. Forgetting this and converting the American co-operative
store into a company for.all praotical purposes is what has been the
Scylla of many. And the other
danger, the Charybdis, whioh has
wrecked a moiety of the remainder
haB been the lack of truBt. Bryce
commenting on the constitution of
the United States, and his work iB
to be found in the libraries of all
successful lawyers in the United
States, says that the ohief characteristic |of that constitution, is itB
system-of-eheok~and countercheck,
dividing responsibility until it waB
hard to tell who is to blame in
caBe of disaster or wrongdoing.
There has been attached a large
executive committee who mistook
their duties for those of the duly
appointed manager. Disaster comes
and the manager blames the execu
live" committee, and .the" executive
blames the manager. Here are two
chief differences between British
and American co-operative societies.     Iu the former country there

CO-OPKRATION.
It is often asserted that the,
Socialist programme iB altogether in
the air and that nowhere does it
oome forward with a scheme that
haa ita feet on mother earth. That
talking will not effect social changes
nor that men can be made good by
Aot of Parliament. Without contravening the whole of theBe broad
aasertions one oau toat them by seeing if they are true in one of their
particulars and if not the generalities indulged in will be discredited by just tbat amount. Now there
ia one feature of Socialism whicb
haa oertainly a pied a terre and
that ia co-operation. Co-operation
haa been a great success in Great
Britain. Co-operation haa been
comparatively a failure upon this
continent but it has still scored
many suooeBSBes. And the reason
of the comparative non-succeBB ol
cooperation in'this country and
continent is mainly from ideas
forced upon it by the politics and
and the genius of the people. For
an idea to get a hold upon the
people it must be a generous one.
It must not altogether deal witb
self. It must uplift tbe whole
people. And that is the theoretical
idea of Socialism, and it is undoubtedly the idea which haB given
the new religion the vogue wl ich is
daily increasing.' It iB the Gospel
of the betterment of the human
raoe as a whole. But when Socialism begins to apply its theoretical
idea to oo operation, which is im*
impossible without Socialism, it too
often fails. Co operation got itB
firat great praotical start from the
poet offioe employees of London.
Woiking on a miserable pittance
they professed themselves unable
to pay the sums demanded by the
retail tradesman of the great molro-
polis. They started a cooperative
atore. A small sum was exacted
from each person joining and some
little capital   wan   borrows),  but
In the latter country they are few
and far between and success iB less
frequently chronicled than failure.
Slill the idea is gaining'grouud and
as it is only fools who do not learn
by mistakes the day of cc-operative
enteapriee is dawning on thia continent.

CHAPTER Xir (Continued)
When I thought I had him at
disadvantage on a jest, he burked
the point ol my telling argument,
and iiruok me below my guard;
when I would have pinned him to
some keen injury regarding   that
whioh he did not  wish to tell, he
turned questioner with swift adroitness, and made—quioker than it
takes to write—his inquisitor the
humble   answerer  to his playful
malioe.   He   was   better  at that
fenoe than I,   there  could  be no
doubt, and very speedily his nimble    tongue,    which   sounded so
strange and pleasant in the hollow
of  his    helmet,  had  completely
mastered mine.   So, with a laugh,
I did acknowledge to the conquest.
Whereon that generous youth was
pleased. I saw, and laid aside bis
coyness, and chattered like a mill
stream among gravels on an idle
Sunday.     He    turned  out both
shrewd and  witty,  with  a head
stuffed full of romanoe and legend,
just such as one might have who
had spent a young life listening to
troubadours and minstrels.    And
I liked him none the lees because
he trim med the gross fables of that
time to suoh a decent shape.    He
told me one or  two  that  I had
heard before, although he knew it
not.   And as I had besrd them
from the licentious lips of courtly
minstrels they are not fit to write
or tell, but my worthy wayfarer
dipped and purged them so adroitly, and turned them out so fair and
seemly, all with suoh a nice un-
oonsciouBneBB,    I    soarce    could
recognise them.   He  was  a most
gentle natured  youth, and there
waa   something   in   his presenoe,
something    in    that   there wSb
strange about him whioh great.*/
drew me.   Now you would think,
to listen to him, he was all a babbling stream as (•hallow as could
be, and then, anon, a turn of sad
wisdom or a sigh set  you wondering as when that same stream runs
dead into the shadows, and you
hear it fret and fume with gathering strength far away in unknown
depths of mother Earth.    A most
entioing, a most  perplexing  com
xade.
Beguiling the way in (his fashion
•nd liking my new ally better and
better as we went, we oame a little
after nightfall on a wet and windy
evening to the hamlet near the sea
where the rearguard of the English
troops were collected for ferrying
over to Franoe. Here we halted
and sought food and shelter, but
neither were to be bad for the asking. That little Btreet of English
dwellings was crowdeed with hun-
gry^troopers. They were camping
by tbeir gleaming watch Area all
along the grassy ways, so full was
every lodgment, while every yellow
window of the dim gabled alehouse
in the midst shone into the wet,
dark night, and every room within
was replete with stamping, olank-
ing, noisy gallants. Their chargers
filled the yard and were picketed a
furlong down the muddy road,
that sloped to the murmuring unseen sea, and there was not space,
it seemed, for one single other horse
or rider in the whole friendly village.
But the insidious Flamauooeur
found a way and place. He Bought
out the master of the inn himself,
and, unheeding of his curt refusals,
made request so cunning and used
his money pouch so liberal that
that strong and surly yeoman, with
muoh to do, found ua a loft to
sleep in, which was a bedroom
better than the wayside, though
still but a rough one.

CORRESPONDENCE
[We are not responsible for the
opinions of our correspondents.]
Editor World—Sir: In reference to your kindly notice of the
formation of the Laurier club in
this oity, and also lo appease the
troubled minds of certain individuals sb to tbe impending danger to
Liberalism in RoBBland through the
introduction of the Laurier club, 1
think it well to say that the object
of the olub is to maintain absolute
the principles and platform of the
great Liberal party as adopted at
the Dominion Liberal convention
at Ottawa in 1903. and not to allow
so-oalled members of the party to
sallyout a nd carry abroad and promulgate a policy outside our platform, inconsistent with it, without
entering our protest at onoe, and
convince all Liberals that to our
minds such are not true Liberals
deserving of our support.
The Lanrier olub is to represent
at Rossland the true and abiding
principles of the Liberal govern-
at-Ottawa, and maintain without a
break the principles of Responsible
Government, whioh our fathers
secured for their posterity—some of
them by their blood. Thus the
heritage of freedom which was
handed down to ub is in great
danger of being lost through thf
unfaithfulness of so-called oertain
Liberals, who are a few, merely
camp followers of the great Liberal
party for aelfkh and grafting ends
The Laurier club cannot agree to
the principles of a high protection,
and, therefore, it cannot go hand in
hand with certain Liberals in this
city and elsewhere in British
Columbia, who pass strong resolutions in favor of protection, placing
also these resolutions in the hands
of the Conservatives on the floor of
parliament to be used therein to
attack and embarrass the Laurier
government, and read and quote
these resolutions to bolster theirown
protection arguments,
The Laurier olub expects such
Liberals as to purge
themselves of the incubus or nightmare of protection which eventually is bound to down Liberalism if
entertained for a moment.
The Laurier olub that protection
suits finely the bloated capitalist
and combinesters, but freer
trade is the polioy of the Laurier
olub. This is the polioy of the
consumer, the polioy of the working-
man (who after all iB the taxpayer
of the Dominion of Canada). The
working man and all other consumers form more than 80 per
cent of the people of Canada. It is
for these we bend our energies to
help and see that justice is done
them. The other fellow is sure to
take care of himself.
I think that I have made it dear
as to the object of the Laurier club
in Roseland, and I say boldly in
protecting the Laurier club, over
which I have the honor now to be
the presiding officer, that it is not
the intention of the Laurier club to
supplant any society whioh works
faithfully and consistently for the
Liberal party, but to aid and use
all mesne that go to strengthen our
great leaders at Ottawa. Our door
is open to any true Liberal to enter
and beoome member, but any
one who is so prejudiced aa not toj
outer dims iisun  iujus'icn.     I am
