Lumber Company 37,000 feet which
was delivered at the same time as
that included in bill tendered (or,
thus making the total quantity delivered ioy,8oo feet. The account
for samt' being as follows:

Mr. Wright said that as he had
not bet n asked for figures recently,
and as be had been told that the
Western Corporation would be
treated fairly in all deals, and that
as eight loads of lumber were being
supplied the municipality, he asked
for llie information.
Councillor Morden—Then win
do you ask when you know how
many loads are being used?
The reeve said that the clerk
would furnish the desired information.
Committee reports which were
of a routine nature were all adopted
as read.

Amount paid by council.. $945.76
Your committee is glad to be
able to report that upon the above
statement being submitted to the
Western Corporation, Mr. Wright
at once undertook to send a letter
to the council, withdrawing the
misleading statement made by the
Western Corporation, and signed
by-Mr. Henry C. Wright, which
ignored the purchase of the 37,000
feet not included in the bill tendered for, and suggested that the
discrepancy between the amount
of the Rat Portage Lumber Company's tender, viz., $660.00, and
the amount paid the Rat Portage
Lumber Company, $945.76, was
paid up by extra charges for cutting in sliort lengths, towing and
hire of scows. Such, however, is
not the case, as the $945.76 paid
the Rat Portage Lumber Company
for the 109,800 feet included all
charges f. o. b. scow North Vancouver.

quarter miles to be built forthwith
Then following certain dotted lilies
for proposed extensions, north from
Twenty-first street, 2,Hoo feet, und
from Keith road to Fifteenth street,
3,000 feet, it would bring the pro
posed total to 5 -S14, or nearly six
miles. There was also about 3,500
feet outside the townsite, which
would bring the total to a little
over six miles,
Councillor Bell said that outside
lot 273, which was not in the
municipality, they would scarcely
have live miles.
The reeve said he would like to
see a belt line built.
Councillor Morden figured on
the map with a ruler, and found
lhat they could have a belt line by
turning back at Bewicke avenue
instead ol going out to Capilano
creek, and it would make exactly
live miles within the municipality.
Councillor May said the route
included a big ravine over which
he would ask no company to build
as it would be unreasonable. The
tourist traffic to Capilano would be
the best paying business the com-

Following is the report of finance
committee, re tenders received for
(1) Your committee has to report
that, after hearing the evidence adduced by Councillor Morden and
the Western Corporation, the con-
conclusion arrived at was that the
Western Corporation was seemingly under some misapprehension as
to the description ol a pari of lumber included in the bill tendered
for by the Western Corporation and
the Rat Portage Lumber Company.
(2) The quality of the lumber
supplied by the Rat Portage Lumber Company in filling the bill is
equal to that supplied previously
bv the Western Corporation for
similar purposes.
(3) Tender of Western
Corporation for 72,800
feet was  .... $noo,8o
Tender  of   Rat  Portage
Lumber Co. was.... $660.00
to the public press that your council paid the Rat Portage Lumber
Company $945.76, I beg to state
that you produced proof to me
that the extra amount paid was for
further lumber bought, and at the
same time would call your attention
to the fact that 1 noticed this
amount of $945.76, passed by the
finance committee, and certainly
did not think it could be for extra
lumber, as we had not been asked
to tender for same, hence my remarks.    Yours truly,

Another American invasion of the old
world is reported from London, where
the popularisation of the American
soda water fountain and1 American
Iced drinks Is going on rapidly. Ten
years ago a soda fountain In England
was a rarity. Now they are to be found
everywhere, though, alas, the American girl who (locks to London In greater numbers every spring for the "sea-
sou" rather scorns ttie English substitute for tlie refreshing Broadway oasis.
'I'he average London Boda fountain Is

us lu America has long since been rclc-
| gated tu the crossroads country store
for the refreshment of the summer
t boarder and the occasional native. Its
. product in comparison Willi the flziy
. mixture sold on Broadway Is as primitive as tlie old fashioned fountain Itself. Except ut one or two large confectioners' and chemists' shops In the
Strand, tho average London fountain
boasts of only one fruit flavor, lemon
squash, In addition to ginger beer, ginger ule aud kaola tonic. Tlic glass of
soda containing a lump of lee cream is
much sought for by American travelers
In Loudon, but Is still unfamiliar to tht
native palate,
The American Ice cream saloon It

Itself to tlie Londoner, who pays 13
cents for what looks no more thai
a tablespooul'iil to an American. Icei

IUtbd the 5th day of December, 1005,
It is a sign of the most extreme
old age if one exhibits guod sense
in Christmas buying.
Along about nuon on Christinas
day, everyone is cross who is old
enough to have sense to be.
As a rule, men don't want anything lor Christmas, and ihey are
the only Oi,A wi 1 . what they
As Christmas approaches the
men of the family feel as limp as a
dull that has had a hemorrhage of
The men arc receiving their lirst
Christmas gifts; Their wives are
giving them a handsome assortment ol hints.
This is what we are all doing
now: We look at a list in one
hand, a little money in the other,
and then sigh.
Join the Christinas trot; Anyone
who tries to stem popular opinion
at this season is likely to be run
over by toy express wagons.
About all that we hope for Christmas is that the woman who cooks
our Christmas dinner will have been
loo busy to make cranberry jelly.
At Christmas play, and make good
For Christmas comes but once a
year. — Tusser.
If a child believes in Santa Clatis,
don't tell him that there is no such
person unless ynu want his mother
to hate you worse than she hates
her husband's kin.
It's real heroism to smoke the
"nice" Christmas cigar especially
selected by a woman for the occasion. "To waft thee Irom distraction," as it were.
There isn't anything a boy plays
with that will make ol him a picture as pretty as a little girl makes
with her doll, and be suffers a similar handicap when grown up.
A man is taxed so heavily to buy
presents fur his wile's kin that she
lightens the burden by refusing to
tax him to buy any for his own, but
somehow he doesn't appreciate it.
The women should remember
that along about the first of January, when the Christmas bills
come in, tlie men are not going to
be soothed as easily as a dull that
shuts its eyes when put down.
If a woman remembers all her
husband's kill, and all of her own
kin, anil lite, n i i, she is still
shy her share of the Christinas
Spirit unless she buys something
for the preacher, the doctor and
the milkman.
This is the size present that all

Some of the aldermen of Vancouver evidently are trying to blame
the city engineer for the present
bad state of the streets there. Ill
the face of the tact that the Terminal City is supposed to have a
"business men's" council, to say
the least, such actions and tactics
are mean and contemptible, This
aggregation now in power, during
their term of office just closing,
caused the resignations of three ul
the most honorable, painstaking
and competent city ollicials thai
ever served a civic board, on
trumped-up charges of inefficiency,
The council has proved itsell incompetent as a " business" proposition, and in order to shift
responsibility blame the new engineer for the present unsatisfactory
state of the streets. Aid. Williams,
in his usual cheap style, says thai
"the engineer does not understand
this climate," and Aid. Baxter says
that "our engineer is a chicaco as
far as this city is concerned," We
believe that there does not live the
engineer who could satisfy the gang
controlling the civic affairs of Vancouver.
Christmas is becoming a joke
even to the short story writers of
the Christmas numbers of the
magazines. Mary Wilkins Freeman has written a Christmas story
in the December number of Harper's Monthly, which she calls
"The Pink Shawls," and a very
nice old maid, who is fund of knitting, knits her friends pink shawls
for Christinas presents, She is a
good looking old maid and pink is
becoming to her, but she never
gets time to knit a pink shawl for
herself. She frequently Bays before
her friends that she would love to
have a pink shawl, and on llie
Christmas which is in the story,
she receives eight. She knits her
shawls with an odd little stitch,
and as one after another of her
pink shawls arrive she discovers
that she has knit every one of them
herself, ller friends have passed
the pink shawls she has given lliein
for Christinas presents from one
person to another until finally eigiit
of then) come back to her. Every
woman who reads the story will
think, down in the bottom of her
heart: "That story was drawn
from life."
