The first matter of interest whioh
ooourred waB over a complaint
arising from giving oertain emergency printing to A. T. Collis &
oompany, emanating from the
Miner job printing press. The
complaint was of the Finance Department' and was referred to
them.
In oonneotion with this Alderman Rolt strongly animadverted
on the evils of "emergency" orders,
and insistad on prevision. He deolared that in future all orders for
supplies, and printing should be
put up to tender. He complained
that no meeting of the Finanoe
oommittee had been held although
several things had been done, without consulting him. He warned
his fellow committee men that if
such a course was again taken with
him, that they would probably
find themselves saddled with the
a st of things thus ordered.
Reverting to this system of tender
Alderman Rolt deolared that he
was not willing that the suspicion
should be inourred tbat any one or
two or four aldermen had given
certain orders to their friends.
Alderman Stout eoncurred.
Alderman Rolt wanted to know
whether there was a firm of solicitors in this oity who had a bill in
oonneotion with the Rook Creek
right of way.
Mayor Clute said the amount to
be paid for tbe right of way bad
been submitted to arbitration. The
decision arrived at was final, and
all tbe oity had to do was to pay.
On the reading of the report*
Mayor Clute said he had instructed the City Treasurer to make out
all oheques for salaries under the
Mayor and Aldermen Indemnity
Bylaw.
Alderman McDonald deolared
that that bylaw only applied to
1903.
Mayor Clute asked him to refer
the matter to the City Solioitor or
or take a private opinion.       H^
Alderman   MoDonald persisted.
Mayor Clute "You don't know
{anything about it."
Aldrrman Rolt said he had not
1 been oleoted with a platform taoked
on to his back or his feet, but as ht
did not want a salary he wanted to
know the legal way of getting rid
of it.
Mayor Clute "Repeal the bylaw."
Alderman Lockhart wanted to
know whether the ohairman of any
committee had a right to inour expenses without consultation with
h» oommittee.
Mayor Clute said he thought that
the ohairman of a committee was
merely the mouthpiece of that
oommittee.
City Solicitor Nelson ooncurred.
Speaking generally, he thought
that the chairman of a oommittee
could aot without oalling a meeting of his oommittee and haviog a
majority to authorize his acts. The
mayor, indeed, had certain limited powers on emergencies, but
these he thought did not include
the committee chairman. He
would answer   the  question next
ENDANGERED BY  FIRE
Aid. Rolt Wants to Safe-
Guard the Public at tbe
Theatres.
Mayor Clute aaked Alderman
Martin of the B ard of Works why
he has Dot oalled a meeting of hiB
committee.
Alderman Martin deolared that
he knew of no work going on,
Alderman Rolt gave some in
stances.
Alderman Martin said he meant
"no work of any oonsequence."
Mayor Clute said that tne ohairman had been appointed to do
work not to play. Meetings should
be called.
Alderman Lockhart declared he
was not satisfied with tbe way the
Board of Works was being carried
on.
Alderman Rolt coucurred as far
as the Sanitary Department was
concerned.
Mayor Clute complained that the
Finance committee bad not attempted to consider the school estimates which was its manifest
duty.
Alderman MoDonald wanted the
whole council to deal with the estimates.
Mayor Clute ooncurred.
Alderman McDonald wanted the
estimates passed aa they stood.
Mayor Clute demurred and
wanted the estimates oonsidered.
A committee of tho whole was then
agreed upon.
The bylaw for anticipation of
the revenue, was then oonsidered
in a committee of the whole with
Alderman Petch in the chair.
The amount to be anticipated
was fixed at 128,000, in view of the
fact that the assessment roll for
last year was $32,000, of which
831,000 still remained unpaid.
Alderman Roit introduced a bi*
law, seoonded hy Al Jernan Look
hart, for amending the trades li-
cenco bylaw.
The bylaw provides for a lessening of tbe fees oharged.
Alderman McDonald thought
there were ulterior motives on the
part of Alderman Rolt.
The unusual ooarse of reading
the bylaw a second time on its first
introduction  was adopted.
Alderman Rolt declared his motive for amending the bylaw was
beoause the old Ip.,, was not enforced. The public buildings used
in Rossland had not been passed
as safe by the Build. ig Inspector.
They mQBt be put into proper order. To do bo will mean considerable expense. To lighten the burden, Alderman Rolt wantea to reduce the lioence in order to help
out the owners in such case.
Alderman McDonald declared
that tbe councils of the past had
allowed firetraps.
A desman Rolt—Hear I hear I
Alderman MoDonald—and that
no reduotion should be made in the
licenoe fees. The law shouh bu
enforced, and every place olosed
which would not comply with the
law.
Alderman Rolt—Hear' hear I
Alderman McDonald wool on to
say tbat he did not understand
why Alderman Rolt meant by reducing tbe fee to one (../liar.
Alderman Rolt retorted that the
fees could be made what Aldarman
McDonald wanted. What he insisted upon was that the buildings
were made safe.
This provoked a retort from Alderman McDonald and Alderman
Rolt said that fcr instance there
was hardly a publio building in
town whose doorB opened cutwards,
including tbe Miners Union hall.
Alderman MoDonald flatly contradicted tbe speaker.
Mayor Clute said that there
must be an attempt to bring the
houses of public entertainment
within the bylaw. V ■ . aot a
oase of revenue, it was nor, a oase ot
oinching those who had invested
here, it was a oase of emiuring tbe
safety of the publio. It was in the
power of the polioe uoruJiiBaiouers
to shut every place in .ii« oity at
onoe. This was too drustic, and
therefore Alderman Roll's amejd*
ment.
Alderman McDonald skill objected, and Alderman Rult said lie
would withdraw his m >tion and go
at it another way.
Notice was formally given to the
Rossland Water and Lighting company for an inspection of their
books,

Miners Union reports that George
F. Dougherty of the Greenwood
Miners Union and also seoretary

has absconded with the funds of
the local union to the amount of

Alderman MoDonald moved, Alderman Petob second*,], that the
oity officials named at the laat
meeting be dismissed.
Alderman Rolt wanted to know
whether the mover and foonder of
the resolution had any remarks to
make, any juBtifija.ion to offer.
Neither of these aldermen having  anything   to  say, Alderman
said he had always bse:. suspioious
of the Reform party,   To dismiss
old offioials without oause is to go
back.   It was the time dishonored
policy of "to the victor belong the
F"oih"—it was a policy  of corruption and graft.   He had heard of
negotiate >r>  by   whioh   Inspector
..oug had bseu claimed as a sacrifice.   He had heard that the May-
a bad refused to throw him to the
wolves.   He had an amendment to
offer, ffbich was to the effect that
no city oJioial Bhould be dismissed
without cause assigned and without an investigation. II the amendment was turned out, the speaker
would resign, and he hereby challenged   AldermuL    McDonald   to
do the same.
Alderman McDonald and Petoh
agreed to do so.
Alderman MoDonald deolared
he was acting on law and prinoiple.
Alderman Petoh agreed.
Alderman Stout said he was of
the opinion that the lioenoes ought
to be better collected.
Alderman MacDonald then said
that City Clerk McQueen had issued certain licences which he
should not have, that W. J. Nelson
should not be City Solicitor and
Oity Magistrate, that W. F. Van
Buskirk held a position whioh had
no duties, that Inspeotor Long's
position coe id be filled by another
man, that i« -. Heron apparently
did nothing.
Alderman Mai tin concurred
with Alderman McDonald end had
nothing further to say.
Alderman Lockhart said the
policy shown by Alderman Tic-
Donald was strongly objected to
by him.
Mayor Clute then took the floor.
He declared the amendment had
his support. The original motion
wrs an outrage on the public and
on decency. He had not defied the
aldermen with whom he had enter
ed into negotiations foi the sake
of pence but he would now. He
defied the aldermen to dismiss
City Clerk McQueen.
The amendment was then put
and voted down by four votes to
two. The original motion was
then carried.

THE CHAMBERLAIN POLICY.
Muoh capital is being made in
certain   quarters,   both   in   Great
Britain and in Canada, of the laot
that the British government has
been defeated in three bye elections
closely following the one upon the
other in the Old Country and ascribing the defeat to a repudiation
of Chamberlain'^   polioy,   by   the
electorate of those  constituencies.
It must be stated, however, that
the three seats   in   question were
Opposition seats, and therefore the
Government has lost no support by
the result of the elections.   But it
must also be admitted that Great
Britain is by no means unequivooa-
ally in fa'-or of Mr.  Chamberlain's
root and branch policy,    It would
be surprising if it were, inasmuolr
as  the English  have always been
noted for the rootedness of their
convictions and the slowness with
which they are changed. This trait
in particular applies to the men of
Devon who pride themselves upon
being slow but sure.   Like the men
from  Missouri,   they have   to   be
shown.    The surprise that must be
felt, however, should be expressed
at the way in which Mr. Chamberlain    has    so   quickly   gathered
strength.  At the outset of hiB campaign he himself thought that the
issue would be prolonged, whereas
at the present moment it is doubt
ful whether an appeal to the polls,
after the present session, would not
result in   hie being called to the
premiership of the Empire.   And
no man more worthily deserves it,
even taking the services of Arthur
Balfour, the present premier, into
consideration.    Two things may be
noted in this connection, the one
being that the Duke of Devonshire,
who ia head of tbe Liberal wing of
the Unionist party, and who has
recently        repudiated       Chamberlain   while  endorsing Balfour,
had been repudiated himself in his
aotion   by   members of   his   own
wing who claim that they represent at least five sixths of its total
Btrength.    The other point is that
the, Toronto  Globe, whioh is sup-
supposed, more or less truly, to be
the official   organ of  the  Liberal
party in this country, is distinctly
hostile to Chamberlain.   It iB to
be hoped that it is voicing its own
sentiments, rather than that of the
party.   This   is   likely to  be the
case, aB the eminent leader of the
Liberals   in   Canada, Sir Wilfrid
Laurier, is the pioneer in the   very
path of  that policy which Cham
berlain, is endeavoring to bew into
an  Empire highway through the
forests of theoretical prejudioe and
innate convictions whioh are held
by   faith   rather   than by reason.
Still the Globe's attitude is considered as significant by Liberals,
as has been shown by certain action taken and discussion provoked
at home here in tho Kootenays ae,
for  instance,  in   tbe meeting   in
RoBsland of the Assoo'ated Boards
of Trade.   It is well to say, however, that   the   majority were  in
favor of Chamberlain's polioy, and

CHAPTER IX (Continued)
'Why, friend I  Who are you.'
'I am a fool, Sir!'
'Never mind,' I replied cheerfully, 'there ie the less likelihood of
your ever treading thia earth com-
panionless,'
'Why, that ia true enough,' he
said, 'for it waa too muoh wisdom
that sent me thus solitary afield,'
and he went on to tell me bow he
had been ejected that morning
from a neighboring castle. 'I bad
belauded and admired n,y maater
for years—therein I had many
frienda, yet was a fool. Yesterday
we quarrelled about Bome trifle—I
called him beaBt and tyrant, and
theiein, being just and truthful, I
lost my place and comradea over
tUo thai wiee thing 1 aaid for yenrsl
—it is a moBt aorry, disorderly
world.'
Thie strange individual, it seemed, lived by folly, and, though I
had often noticed tbat wit wae not
a fat profession, I could not help
regarding him with wonder. He
was, under his veneer of shallowness, a moat gentle and observant
jester. Long study in the arts of
pleasing bad given him a very
delicate discrimination of moods
and men. He could fit a merriment to the capacity of any man's
mind with extraordinary acumen.
He had stores of ill assorted learning in the empty galleries of his
head, and wherewithal a kindly
gentle heart, a whimsical compain-
ionship for Bad-eyed humanity
which made him haste to laugh at
everything through fear of crying
over it. We were companions before we had gone a mile, and many
were the things I learnt of him.
When our way parted I pressed
one of my rings into bis hand.
'Goodbye, fool!' I said.
'Goodbye, friend!' he called.
'You are the first wise man with
w.'om I ever felt akin'; and indeed,
as his poor buffoon's coat went
shining up the path, I felt bereft
and lonely again for a spell.
Then I found another craftsman
of this curious time. A little way
farther on, near by to a lordly
house standing in wide stretches of
meadow and park lands, a most
plaintive sound came from a thicket
lying open to the sun. Such a dismal moaning enlisted my compassion, for here, I thought, is some
luckless wight just dying or, at
least, in bitterest extremity of sorrow: so I approached, stepping
lightly   round
with soft, fine combed hair upon
hie pretty sloping shoulders, hia
sleeves so long they trailed upon
the moBs, his shoes laced with
golden threads and toed and tassel-
led in monstrous fashion. A most
delicate perfume oame from him:
his clothes were greener than grass
in springtime, turned back, and
puffed with damask. In his band
behadasoroll whereon now and
again he looked, and groaned in
most plaintive sort.
'Why, man,'I asked, 'what ails
you? Why that dreadful moan-
ing? What are you, and what is
yon scroll?' So abborbed was he,
however, it was only when I had
walked all round him to spy the
wound, if it might be, that he suffered from, and finally stood di*
ectly in his sunshine, repeating the
question, that he looked up.
'Interrupter of inspiration! Hast
thou asked what I am, and what
this is?'
'Yea; and more than onoe.'
'Fiel not to seel I am a minstrel
—a bard, my Lord's favorite poet
up at yonder castle, and thia is an
ode to   his   mistress's   eyebrows.
I was in travail of a rhyme   when
thy blaok shadow  fell upon tha
page.'
'Give me the leaf! Why, it is tha
sickliest staff that  ever  did   dishonor to virgin paperl  There, take
it back.' I said, angry to find so
many tools abroad, 'and listen to
mel   You may be  a   poet,   for I
have no experience of them, but as
I am a man thou art not  a   bardl
You  a   bardl   You   the likeness
and    descendant   of   Howell ap
(jrittith   nuil   an    hundred   other
Saxon gleemen!   You one ol the
guild of Gryilith ap Conan   you a
scop or a skald I—why, boy  they
could write better stuff than thou
canst though they had been drunk
for half a dayi   You  a stirrer of
pasaionB—you a minstrel—you a
tightener of the strong sinews of
warrior hearts!—fiel for shame upon your silly trivial sonnets, your
particoloured suits and   sweet   insipid vapourings!   Out, I say I Get
home to thy   lady's   footstool,   or,
by Thor and Odin, I will give thee
a beating out of pure  respect  for
noble rhyming!'
