Aldermen May, Crickui iy,

council o i Monday lilt. Actiag
Mayor lium, presided. Council
first sat as coun ol revision on the
local -improvement bylaw, Iietween

This bylaw was duly declared aj -

approval ol the council of tin
proposed extension ol the stree
railway Irom Twenty-fiist to
Twenty-third slice! and that the
grade he provided. Kxtension

wilh a grade.
William Loutet, city engineer,
reported lhat a number ol septic
tanks throughout the city are not
working properly and lhat the
matter should be given immediate
attention. Tlie medical health
officer wis instructed to procure
a list of the unsatisfactory tanks
from the city engineer and, after
examination, to report to the
council. Aid. Smith here interposed, to the effect lhat the lank
at ibe lire hall was specially constructed for the city and it is the
worst tank within the corporation.
Ailing Mayor Irwin suggested
that it would he well if the health
committee would compile and
issue a circular, giving instructions
as to the proper care ol the
Under reports of special committees, Aid. Smith-reported that
the city solicitor had been consulted with reference to arrangements with the representatives of
the Wallace Shipyards, Limited,
and that he will lorward all information in due course. It was
further reported that grail.ng

road, aud other work is also neces
sary.the total estimated cost being
thirty dollars. Ordered that the

job at once.
With reference to the tppliif
tion of Mr. Sherwood, that Mali n
avenue lie opened up from Thir-
lei nth street, the city clerk was instructed to write Mr. Sherwood
that, if this application involves
repair! only, the city may be in
a position to act, but if it necest-
ititet nuking a new roid, the
matter must comply with the terms
ul the (tontagc bylaw,

si eking an extension of the tune.
Ottawa Gardens were the next
item discussed and, in view of Ihe
urgent necessity that action he
taken to preserve Ihem Irom
serious deterioration, Aid. Mty
gave notice of a motion that they
bc properly cared (or forthwith.
Aid. YVhnhr propounded the
pertinent query, "Why is the
ferry str. North Vancouver tied up
it the wharf instead ol being in
service?" The acting mayor stit
ed thit he was informed that ihe
is undergoing the necessary antaul
overhauling and inspection.
A letter nceived some time ago
from B, Cook, ol Vancouver, was
called from the file. This letter
proposed certain joint privileges
as to the new ferrv slip. The city
clerk was instructed lo reply to
Mr. Cook, to the effect that the
city is not prepared at the present
time to take action in the matter.
Aid. Smith submitted a report of
the interview ol the special committee With Mr. Marpole, respecting tlie late obstructions at the
ferry landing in Vancouver, ai d
recommended that the acting nuy-
oi lie requested to write the lerry
c nnpany, to the effect that the city
cannot tolerate any further intei-
ruptions lo the service;at the same
time impressing upon ihe company
the necessity of their acting witli
energy and dispatch in the completion of the new slip.
The committee appointed to interview William Godfrey, mana
gerol the Hank ut It N A., Vic
couver, willi respect to the pri-
posed elimination of tlie six montl i
reihniption clause from Hie loin
liylaw, repoited thai Mr. Godfrey
advised that the retention of the
clause would either hinder tl e
sale or else mati rially lower tl.e
price procured for debentures. The
committee recommended the elimination of the clause. The cilv
solicitor having prepared a repealing liylaw and a new bylaw in accordance with the recommendation
ol the committee, the repealing liylaw was given its first, second and
third readings, after which the new
bylaw was passed through a like
process. The bylaw to raise fKo,-
ooo was likewise given three readings.
The council decided to hold a
spi i ml meeting on Thursday evening next, (or work on bylaws and
other business. The Trtdes Licensing bylaw wu given its first,
second and third readings. Thit
bylaw provides a licence fee for
billiard saloons, bowling alleys,

the opening up of Ihe Lillooet
trail through Lynn and Seymour
valleys. A committee was appointed to draft a letter to be sent

Miller-Lauder Boxing Contest
A record crowd witnessed in exhibition ol clevrr boxing upon the
part "I Hilly Lauder, of Calgary,
and aal sturdy pluck and staying
qualities upon the part ol the local
man, Driver Miller, at Lirson's
pavilion, on Monday night. Etrly
in the game it became evident
that Miller had no chance to win
the deciiion, ind the tole question
in debate was whether he would
be able to weather the 15 rounds
He proved game to the end, however, and was not by any means
all in when the gong sounded lor
the conclusion of the match.
Both contestants manifested cordial goodwill throughout and the
contest was exceptionally free from
features that so frequently render
them objectionable.
Lauder proved himsell a clever
boxer, although Miller's inability
to attain the standard of Lauder's
work prevented the Calgary lad
Irom extending himsell and showing the best work o( which he is
capable. His ring tactics are ol
high grade; he is tyiick on his feet
and has the faculty of being some
where else when tits opponent
tries to Iind him. There was a
monotonous repetition of methods
of attack, probably due lo the lact
that such as he used were sufficient
for the purpose.
"Happy Jack" Mael'herson wu
referee and promptly awarded the
decision to Lauder, ulnae it cer-
taiuly belonged.
The preliminary bout Iietween
VVdkins and Kennedy was lively.
There was something doing all llu
time.    The  decision was a draw.
Negotiations are now well under
way for a match between Lauder
and Bob Ritchie, early next week.
Pleasant Social Gathering:
It was a merry company thai

held in the firm's new building on
the Esplanade. The music was
furnished by Harpur's orchestra,
The hall on the first flat, beaut
ifullv decorated for the occasion,
was used for dancing, and with its
floor space, measuring -17x50 feet,
provided excellent accommodation.
This ball will in future be available
for public purpos s, and will pro
vide excellent facilities for lodges,
entertainments, etc. It is provul
ed with two exits, ante rooms, lav
atones, etc.. and is iii every si nse

I he optimttl is I man who sees
the silver lining of lhc cloud when
the side that confronts him is
black .md threatening. In plain
Engl ilh, lie is a inaii who retains
in unmoved niiitiilence in the
lightness nf tilings, the soundness
of conditions,and the brightness ot
tlu liitine at a time when aulicipn
tions have been disappointed. Re
viisrs have COmc and the iniiiinli
ate outlook is a deep indigo. Then
is an alleged optimist abiu.nl in
the laud who is wonderfully hilar
mils 1.. limes ol prospcri'y. He is
very prOOOUCOd and loud spoken
in liis absolute certainty that the
brigbtelt picture that can lie painted in words is none too roseate lo
properly depict present conditions
and luliiia developments; and yet,
when lhe movement ol altairs begins to slnw down some, when the
inevitable process of adjustment
that bilious a period ot unusual
progress in certain lines begins lo
make itself fell, this necessary
evening up of things is a contingency ihai lie cannot understand.
He veiy quickly subsides, his dis-
comtiMre eaily makes itself appar
ent, and I" hu long he is going
around witli a face like a bottle of
vinegar,and tlie wntds of his mouth
are as bitter as gall. The (act is,
ilu such a man is a human chain
tdenn, whose mental hue is dependent upon immediate circum
stain es and Ins uncertain temper.
lie is tlu- creature of circumstances
a coik on the waves, swirled
about liy every eddy, hustled od at
a tangent by every liderip, blown
aside by the passing breeze, tossed
up and down by every slightest
The optimist finds in trying conditions a favorable opportunity lor
the display of his true qtulilici.
Optimism is not an external pose;
it is a confirmed state of mind.
Like the oak,the storm only causes
it to take deeper hold in lhe f inula

Struck Ile
A great pulpit orator, in referring to the well worn topic of
lengthy sermons, is reported lo
have said: "If a preacher cannot
strike oil in half an hour, lie is
either a poor preacher or he is Inning with a mighty poor gimlet."
This method o( striking oil lias
been (ar outdone by the happy
method followed by a church 11
Petenville, Mont. This church
owns 1 Jot in the "Cabbage Patch"
oil districi. The congregition went
into the oil boring business, witli
the result th.it a few days ago, al a
distance of 50 feet from thechtircli
building, a gusher was struck that
proceeded to band out oil it the
rite ol 1200 barreli or more per
diy. The congregation had to gel
busy caring for the oil and, inci
dentally, no Sunday service! could
be held. The net result will be
thit a troublesome church delil
will be wiped oul, lhe pastor will
be paid his back salary ind probably get 1 raise, and an ample sum
will be laid by for future needs.
Notwithstanding   this   illui'ious
ixnnple, it is presumed that local
churchei will continue to bore for
oil alter the old fishioned and well
tried method.
