I,;wards fur the sule purpose of dis

make uf a musical festival. Aud 1st
it be remembered, this occasion wu
never inlendcd by its urigiuaturs aud
organizers tu embody merely a cheap
uud (ulher impertinent imitation of a
philharmonic festival. Tho event was
to be Ihc real thing or nolbing. To
be perfectly frank, quite a uumber uf
fairly intelligent peuple prupbesied the
latter, deeming lhe project tou ambi
liuiis, declaring lhat Ibuse concerned
were wading considerably beyond Iheir
depths. Today these people are blushing al lhe thoughts of their pessimism,
realizing prububly tbat a little con
cre(c help is better than au adverse
The festival was iu itself oue big
lest ii lest, not only of tbe voices of
the candidates but of the voice of the
people. And vox pupuli, without any
hesitation al all, declared Ihe whule
thing well dune ami hoped uumistake
nlilv that il wuuld develop inlo a hardy
annual. Of cuursc, allowances were
made, certain essential fscts borne iu
mind by the good uatured audience,
sundry lillle weaknesses overlooked,as
the nature of lhe occasion very properly demanded, The festival iu its
entirety, however, cau bo likened to a
line lusly buby, whicii came into the
world ou Wednesday wilb Ihc best
possible healthy kind of noise, and
wlmh shows promise uf maturing year
by year.in » manner highly aatisfae

proceedings would necessitate the
diminution of all olher mallei from
today's issue. It il ouly possible lo
dwell generally lm instance, on tbe
events of the afternoon. Thc occa-
aiou was favored wilh glorious wea

through1 Iho wiudows of the Institute
lliiil und uuce sunshine is supposed
lu be an emissary of happiness,should
most certainly havo coaxed thc so

uf Ihe must admirable fads in connection wilh this iiiilial festival was
that Lynn Vulley was prepared lu
smilingly witness the departure of its

for i,o .In I, purpose. The loudest

In Iho regretted absence of Miss
Kirkland, Mr. T. W. Ward opened
proceedings with a pianoforte solo, sf

Half way through the program tbe

of tbe day on which i'hooley wae to

and expressed the same belief to his

" Ves," he suid, " I knew you there.''
"Do you know," I answered, "tbat
I bavo beou lold by a hundred difforeut
persons tbat you were there in my time,
ami yet I caunut recall you features."
His eyes rested ou the floor fur a

setting suu shone through the little
grated window that admitted aid ami

danced like a sprite along the white
washed wall. The doomod man raised
a hand as if lie wished tu grasp the
fleeting ray. Wheu be turned to me
agaiu his eyes were tilled witb tears.
"And yuu don't remember mot" be
said, sorruwfully.
"Nu, I uniiiiii recall a line of your

" I'm lm I u, this will aid your mem

tbere issued a stream of delightful notes
tbat reminded me of tbe story of tbo

He paused and burst iuto tears, lu

"No," he Aurcely shouted, "I with

At thia momeut oue of tbe guauls iu

In portraiture and unless the subject

Discussion |irimarily arose from a
letter from the ferry l.mir.l expressing
dissatisfaction with the way in whicii
the 'money donated to the committei)
wae being spent, it being submitted
that curtain arrangements made upon
the appointment of thc commisaiuiicr
hud nut been roinplicd with.
Tiic chairman, by wuy of preamble,
urged ilmi llic flrat requisite waa fnr
thc I'uutmittce lu have thu confidence
of public liuunla. When lie read the
paragraph published iu the preaa re
i-cnlly affui'liug tho committee and
Mr. I.:,nl, i. ho deemed it advisable iu
the inlereala of the work thuy were
currying #i|tt tu convene a meeting of
thu I'limiuitlue at an early date.      .
Mr. I'urry briefly moved that t'ue
furry board's letter be received. As
a member "I the committee, Mr. I'erry spiiku warmly upun tliu idea uf the
publicity coftimlssloiior being oxpecl
cd to "rustic for hia owu salary" or
in olher wurda collect subscriptions tu
tbia end. How euuld Mr. I .an lor be
expected lo be uutaidc collecting ninl
attending lu his other duties inside at
tliu same l imu I 11 wus a pliysirul im
possibility. Thu commissioner could
only bo eipected to do a fair day's
wurk. Mr. I'erry sought to kuow iu
what reaped Mr. I,awler had failed In
do his duly.
Mr. Murden railed attention to thc
fart i in,i both (loun. Iaiutet and Mr.
Wriglil respectively, representing the
district ami the ferry board respective
ly, wuru present at the meeting of the
committee In which Mr. I mlu sub
milted bis repurt. "That rcpurl,"
said Mr. Morden, "wus read, received

Mr. Wright recalled tbat at tho in
I'i'piiim of tha schema be bail boon
proud as a terry director to nunc the
dtmatioii of Unil, believing thai with
a commissioner of more thau average
ability good work might bu done iu
advertising the city and district. Mr.
Wright, thought, however, that it was
understeqd nu Mr. Uwler'i Hp"olnt
in,-ni that he wuuld solicit donations—
or ouileavor to do so—to the amount
uf hia salary. Now the directors ilml
lhal most of the money ao far lias eppi
in salaries. That was tbe eieeption
Ihe board took to tbe financial report,
iu which tbere was uo word of anything being collected at all.        ,
Mr. Lawlor reminded the inuetinu
that the financial report dated from the
firat of the nur, and included of
cuursc, sume expensus of the uid oflice. Tbe commissioner denied thai
there waa auy agreement made to thu
effect that he should collect hia owu
salary.   Had there beon any such thing
iu., iu ,i. he wuulil nut have consider
ed the mallei for one muiuent. The
duties uf the cummiaaioner woru ape
• iii.nlli atated in the minutes, and
llm:,.' miuutes contained no juoution of
iiiiiihing of the kind. "The district
uuucil and tho furry buard," de
elared Mr. Lnwlcr, "havu passed wbat
is virtually a vute of censure upun mu
pursntially, I am not working for the
cily ferriea nor for tbe district couu
cil. I am engaged by the Joint Civic
Advertising llpiiirailtee and am au

uf my work should be made right here
ami uut elsewhere. If tbe repurts that
I havu read are Irue, lhe mailer

t'uiin. I,unlet inquired whether Mr.
I.Hitler's remarks were based upun
slreet talk, newspaper rupurl ur fael.
The eummissioner becoming iucreus
ingly emphatic, Mr. I'hilip assured bim
that he coold ruly upon the suppurl
uf the committee in Ihis matter.
Aid. Foreman, reverting tu the topic
uf argument, said tbat he did nut
think it was umlrrstoud tbat if be hail
lime be wuuld sulicit iluuatiuns. Mr.
I-T,i,mui. Iliuiiglit lhe mistake had
arisen thruugh curtain applicants fur
the position stating al Ihu time that
Ihey were williug if required to cul
leet their uwn salary. The whule
scheme, the alderman contended, was
in its infamy yel ami it wuubl be a
pily lu throw euld waler ou it. It
wuuld probably develop intu a good
lliiug if properly carried uul.
Mr. W. I'. Iiiu,Imiii Staled iTuphlili

duties were tu the district cuuucil, and
it was ridiculous to argue that he
shuuld have aired his views lu tbe
cummitleu bufuru submilling them tu
the eouueil which he represented The
councillor proceeded lo criticise a fold
er which had been recently issued by
Ibe committee and whieb he argued,'
contained statements that were false
Mr. I.anler and the speaker indulged
iu a wordy dispute as to the truth
about the l'acillc Oreat Kaatorn, the
('unu,liun l'acillc, Iho dry dock at
Huche l'uinl and lbc waterfront project of Mr. J. P, Fell. "Nothingnew

in neither of these pamphlets is there
in,iiiiun of the residential attractions
of the district—the very thing upuu
which wc principally base our hopes
and ambitions."
Aid. Irwiu thought that Ihe duties
of tbe publicity cummissiouer bail been
carried out. lie considered It very un
desirable tbat thc idea ehould get
abruad that tbu commissioner bad been
negligent. Tbe committee wauted to
be fair lo him and to themselves.'
Mr. I'erry likened the work of tbe

"Very well," daddy went on, "I tbluk I wllrtell you a littlo atory about

"Mart could aklp tbe rope forward and backward, wltb ber nnhs crossed or

"Mary's mother dkl not like her little girl to skip the ropo tuo much. Tht
ductor bad said tbat too much of It wns bad for tbo health. Besides, Mary's
shoes wore out su rapidly that she seldom had a neat looking puir on ber feet.
"So ooo day ufler talking it over with grandma Mary's motber said:

lbat bylaw No. 802 wuuld nut be val

as, if the time limits are not made and
complied with, the bylaw is void by
virtue of the statute. At the same
time, with that clause in it, debentures cannot be floated uutil the cum
pletiuit uf the work, as the bond hold
era would have no security that the
work wuubl be carried uut according
tu the bylaw and, although thu money
might lie advanced thereou, there might
be no security. The only course open
for tbe council and the Perry Coin
puny to luke is tu arrange with the
bunk for the a,In  of certain money
i-iiili. n-iii to carry the contract along
until completion and the minute the
