He had called at the aback in Ibe
course of soliciting for the News Ad
vertiser. He was drinking on au em
ply -ii.niii.li and this being su tbe li
'im 1 may have had unusual affect on
him. He had no recollection of boar
iug a shot fired, lu fact, he remem
bored nothing uutil he awuke iu tbe
Nortb  Vaueouver general hospital.
Dr.   McMane related  Ibat  on  Wed
in ".day evening aboul 7.Ili he was sum

uid "The gun is in tbe shack some

Constable Sbanuen corroborated.
Wheu he bad asked lbc accused what

HOOKBV
Tho Nortli Vaueouver hockey club
mot the 72nd Highlanders 'aggregation
hero ou Saturday afternoon and defeated tbem liy 7 goals to 1 after a game
which was anything hut "childlike
ami bland." ' This coming Saturday
the local club meets Vancouver ou the
North Vancouver ground, an encounter
which promises to bo interesting.
The council in committee last evening considered a proposition submitted
by Mr. H. V .Tuckef to.the effect that
be could deliver rock from his stone
quarry in lot 1'lW cheaper than it could
be got anywhere else. A road would,
however, bave to be opened to lhe
quarry and this the couucil agreed lu
do, at the same time giving no guur
antee of purchase tu Mr. Tucker, who
muat submit a tender in common wilb
others when tbe time comes fur tenders
to be called. ,
"THB     MIKADO"     PBOVBB     A
STRONG ATTRACTION
"The Mikado" has been a great, a
huge success. The North Vancouver
public expressed its approval iu no
measured terms. A treiuoiuious feeep
tion was accorded Katisba and Koko
The "three little maids from achool"
were just "us sweet as sweet guild
be" aud, but why specialize! All
North Vancouver and perhaps much of
Vancouwr itself will go uml see "The
Mikado" before tbe week is oul or,
thoy may regret it.
The pictures of the King and Queen
being proclaimed in their Judiau Km
pire were, of course, heartily approeiat
ad. By the way, Ibe third and last ser-
ley ol ll"""' wonderful photographs will
appear on Thursday, Friday and Sat
unlay next.
It woold be us well lo bear in mind
tbat, during the operatic lum, the cur
tain at the " Lonsdale" rises fifteen
minutes earlier than usual, i.e., at 8.10
instead uf 8.30.
N. V. CORPS OF HELD ENGINEERS

Major James P, Fell Outlines1 Plans of Organi
zation--Vigorous Policy to be Pursued-Will
be Crack Corps.
"Ves, North Viuii'inni;i will ho the
headquarters for No. 8 Field Company
of Canadian Engineers, and recruiting
will commence in a week or two. The
citizens of North Vancouver havo do
nated a site in Mahon Park to Ilis Mu
jesty, through his Minister of Militia,
for tbo purposes of u drill holl, armory
and parade grouud, and tho militia
department intends to commence work
ou the armory as soon os the company
is in boing."
Sucb is tho aiinniiin I'liieni made by-
Mr. James Fell, in the course of an interview yesterday.
'IThe organization of this company
owea i|l inception to the suggestion nl'
Mr. Donald Cameron, C.E., a former
officer.- in the Volunteer Engineers of
England, and now resident iu North
Vancouver, uml wus authorized by the
militia department nearly two yean
ago, but hung Sre for lack of someone
to organize aud take coininiiml of il.
I declined to undertake the work lor u
loug time, hoping that somebody with
better qualifications and more time to
devote to it would do so, but having
undertaken it, I shall leave nu stone
unturned to make No. fi compauy se"-
ond to none in Canada for efficiency
and Minium's.-. All I require ia tbo
hearty cooperation of the young men
of North Vuncoover und Vancouver,
who have a tunic for field engineering,
ami desiro to ht themselves to defend
their couutry in case of need."
"Don't misunderstand me, No.' d
company is uut urgauizeil for decorative
purposes only, though in tbat particular
wo sliull more than hold our own with
tbo other branches of the sorvico. We
intend to learn our work from A to
from liridgo building to bayonet light
ihg, froih wireless telegraphy to the
building of fortifications, from aero
plane flying to submarine milling, so
fur us the militia department gives us
facilities."
"Nd. fi compuny starts out under the
happiest auspices, thanks to th,. broad
miliileilness uud public spirit of the
mayor und council, who have done
everything to expedite the passage of
the bylaw, We have a splendid site for
headquarters. We are gotting all pus
siblc en. nni:',':. nn ni and assiatonci
from the militia department, both iu III
tuwa and  Victoria."
The officers, with the exception of
myself, have not yet been gazetted, but
they will include, among others, 1,1
.1. E. Ward, from the 6th regiment, I.l.
Kobertson, from No. 2 compauy of Can
iidiiin Engineers, aud Mr. Percy Ward
member of the North Vahcouver dis
trict council.
The tutal strength uf the compauj
will bo one major, one captain, four
lii'iileiiiinls, a niudical officer and alum'
180 non-commissioned officers ami
men. As 1 said just now, recruiting
will begin in a week or two, of whieh
due notice will be given."

The past week at the eapiinl has
been one of delegations. From Prince
flupert in the far northwest to Trail
in the extreme southeast thoy have
oonin idoputetion nftor deputation,
have crowded the corridor*, and have
clustered like bees near the door of the
ministers' offiuea. A well filled treasury draws tbem as a honoypot draws
Dies, and though some may he stuck, il'
is probable that' some at least. w"l
carry back a little honey.
One of the most important delegations, whose mission wes not sn much
to ask as to advise, was that of the
coast and mountain lumbermen, which
came down the latter part of the week
for the purpose of consulting with tbe
government on changes suggested In
Ifon, W. R. Hobs' new Forestry Act.
With Ibo general provisions ol' the nevy
bill Ihey soem tu bo sutislleii, but iu u
conference wilh the ministry On 'I'hprs-
day .suggested somo minor changes,
some of which may bo embodied iu
the bill when it. comes to be read by
section iu cnmiiiilteu of llui whole. In
about a week thoy will como down for
:n,i,iin-i conference,
Most of llui other .icli.'s.iii.ii.. have

government on Saturday iporning wltb'
a series of rattier drastic resolutions.

conciliatory I|b did not hold out much'
hope that any of the resolutions would
be embodied in legislation,    To tba
agricultural assnciiiliuiis. tha i'n'inier
plainly stated that there was uo prospect of the government undertaking to
initiate p system of public owned tele
phones at Jbls. tint.,.

the Canadian Northern Railway Company, was another visitors the capital during tbe woek.   Ho had several
Interviews wltb the Premier and one,

While tbere arc admittedly several
practicable routes which may lio followed in constructing the proposed new
line of railway from Hurrard inlet to
the Peace River country, it is an undeniable fact that the route via Howe
Sound, Hijuamish Valley and I'ember-
ton Meadows presents desirable features which render it the most advantageous of all available routes.
It is presumed in any case tlie mote
along the upper reaches of Ilie Frascr
river say from Mllooet northward
would lie the same iu every case, irrespective of the route which might
be followed from the const to 'that
point.
Tbe Bhorteat Route
To begin witn, tlio route via Howe
Bound as mentioned alwve is the inn.il
direct route from Durrani I nlnt to
the point at which lhe railway may lie
axpci'ted lo Arsl arrive at tiic upper
portion of Ihu Eraser river. From a
casual glance al Hie inup, this route
would appear lo have an ailvanlagu
of well nigli flfly per cunt, over other
routes wilh respecl to-mileage raqiiir-
' ad to roach Mllooet from llurranl

of country is new territory from a
railway point of view and it is safe
lo say that it offers inducements with
respect to tha creation of railway tra
flic of a varied character which in
the aggregate aro not second in importance to those offered by the northerly
sections of the proposed railway,
whureiis any other route would fail lo
provide any now traffic becauae of conditions to whicii reference is made
above.
Low Oost of> Construction
The Howe Bound route presents no
engineering difficulties and the grades
would be very light all lhe way. That
portion along the eastern shore of the
Hound itself wuuld probably prove the
must expensive pieco as to cost of
construction, inasmuch as the roadbed
must be built along the side of tbe
hill for several milea, but the nature
of the ground ii. sucb that tbe diffieul-
ties would not extend bilgoi^L the actual coat ot, . aaeavating. Tkfcaugh
rtipiamtoli Valley and i'emberlon Mer
duws tbe cost of construction would be
very moderate.
Boute Approved by Public
Tbese incontrovertible facts fully
justify the position of those who maintain that there is bul one logical route
for tho construction of the l'euce River
railroad and that is the route via the
North Hhore, Howe Hound, Hijuamisli
Valley and l'emberlun Meadows.
Thin in the mule whicii hut been imii
caled liy all Hie discussion which has
taken place iu Vancouver and Nurlh
Vancouver, il is the route which was
advocated by the deputation wbicb
wailed upon Premier Mcllride and the
liocutlve couucil sume weeks ago ami
it is perminsable In hope that whether
the railway it tu be built as a govern
maul undertaking ur liy means uf gov
.■ium. uiul assistance tu a railway cum
pany, thin is llic mule which will be
followed iu lhe construction uf tbe
railway.

"I glanceirtn MtJl nou|iBi*i dlfictlrti.
Har liluu uyes wara regarding me with
ati expression of deep and Interested
attention, but tbey alao yielded t faint
light of somo^iiiotlon which materially
aided |ne to a decision. I can mako
my poi|tlon clear only by briefly
sketching what wai going or In iny
own mind.
Why did 1 hesitate to decide between
Maillot and Burke in charging one or
tbe other of tbem with tho iwrpetrsr
Hon of thla crlmet—for crime It wu,
beyond a shadow of a doubt. Woll,
there were several reasons, any of
which was sufficient, to Indicate what
my attitude toward tbese two men
should be.
In tb* flrst place, both bad frankly
and without tbe least hint of reserve
respecting each other's attitude that
I bad been able to detect, told stories
which tbey must bave found beforehand would lend strongly to Incriminate tbem; hut notwithstanding tbia
(aot, tbey had given their account*
wltb a knowledge Uiat It tbey maintained a strict silence, I must bav*
remained unable to tlnd this Information otherwlso. Tbe hostility between
tbe two—and I could not account for
It—did not explain thla willingness,
because neither had mado au open attempt to direct suspicion toward the
other.
I make a possible exception ber*:
Burke's enigmatic conduct while we
were examining the bidden safe might
be construed as Innuendo deliberately
planned. On the other hand, If be
wero Innocent, and considering tbat
tbe two had been alone, tben be might
honestly have believed Maillot to be
sgullty, but wu reluctant to make a
charge which be waa unable to defend
with tangible proof. Tbo circumstance nl their sun-led agreeing lu all
essentials verified my conclusion that
both had told Ihe truth; mill It waa
possible that eltber of them might not
have told all Ihe truth.
Again, 1 waa convinced by the manners of both lhat there was more behind the tragedy than had been made
to appear, excepting by the haileBt
sort of allusion; a potential (actor
whose 1 n.i. us, had been barely suggested, whose nature remedied entirely obscure. On tho surface ll looked
aa If Mum h.'il■• had slain Felix Page
and stolen the ruby. Simple enough.
But was thla all?   1 was sure not.
The point, though, that I wish to
make Is this: whatever the prime motive for Ihu murder might have been,
Maillot had not the slightest Idea re-
apectlng It, nor did he even suspect
that such a motive existed. He was
still loo dazed from the whirl of events
of tbe inn 1 twenty-four houra to con-
alder Ihe mmiur In any other light than
tho way In which It most nearly affected himself.
As for burke, I was pretty much In
doubt. I fell lhat hu knew something
that he was keeping In reserve, but
what It might he or how to got hold of
him and foreo tho Information from
lilin I dlu nol at this stage know.
If anything at all about tbe puizle
was clear, ll waa lhal the two had uot
and were not working together. Individually, Ihu evidence—such as ll was
—moro strongly Indicated Maillot. It
waa at thla momeut that I looked toward Minn Hooper aud decided.
"Malllol," said I, tersely, "It's up to
you and Uurke lo submit to a personal
search."
He flushed hotly, but maintained bis
attitude of mini. I did not dare a
glance In Miss Pluetto's direction.   -
"Candidly," I added, "I don't think
you have (he ruby—-for that matter, I
don't think Burke baa either. But such
a proceeding Is ouly fair to mc, for If
I turn you two itbape louse I'm taking
all the cbauces. I ought to bu buu-
dllug you both off to Jail; I don't want
to do that, you aee, and I deserve some
sort of—"
'Enough," Maillot cut In. "I be-
llovo you're a good follow, Bwlft; I
have no objection to you going over
me with a microscope."
He rose at once, extended his arms
above his head to facilitate my taak,
und even easayed a bit of hauler at my
hesitating lo begin.
In truth It was hard enough to do;
tbe presence nf tho two girls msde the
oporatlon not only doubly disagree
able, bul extremely embarraalng u
well. Misa Fluette'* cheeks wore hot
wilh Indignation, her bale) eyes snapped. Bhe made uo comment—thank
goodness! bul II wa* plain to be seen
tbat she restrained heraelf only with
tbe greatest efforts. I am pretty
adept at "going through" a man; and
wbilo In Ihe preaent Instance It required bul a fow momeuls to satisfy
myself tbat Maillot could not bav* >tbo
gem, I waa all the while acutely sensible of a little foot tapping nervously
beneath the table aod an angry look
searing my offending back.
"There!" I ejaculated at last, with
an attempt at making light of tins
matter and at Including Miss Hooper
-and Miss Fluette a* recipients of my
apology. "If you'll only lose sight of
Ike man In lhe Instrument, you'U forget Uie liberty, Maillot.
bad * certain policy In doing so. H*
might, passible have slain hi* uncle;
4f-w, however, the act had not bean
wkWP may go; but let me Ull you"—
I oyaJ tbem all aerioualy- -"prepare tor
a grilling at tbe lnyuuet, I would ad
viae you lo be frank, u you bave been

noes Ony straightway reoelve a had
Impression. I'm suru Mis* Fluotto
would tar rather put up witb unwelcome publicity, tban tkat vou should
suffer through any qulxotlo ideas ot
shielding hur nam*."
He look It all aa I intcudedd he
ibould, but never a algu of approval
did I f*t from tk* two pretty sglrl*.
Wltb my concluding words Miss Fluette tbruit a band under Maillot's arm
add gave It an affections^ llttl*
squses*.
Before tb* door closod, Miss Cooper's head iMnt and she glanced back
at nu across her shoulder. Sn* wa*
much tin more beautiful of tb* two.
OHAPTBR IX.
Tracka In tli* (now
I knew that Boyal Maillot apprc-
daUd bl* position a* well u I did
my**lf; anil I Mt perfectly accur* In
granting Mm Ul ilbatty.   to trutb, I
premeditated, but tbe result of a sud'
don uncontrollable outburst o( passion, and lis wa* not the tort-ot fellow
wbo would mn a wag from tho consequences, however severe they migbt
be. The effects ot my friendliness and
my willingness to take bim al hia
word were plainly demonstrate! by a
gratitude which was tha mare Convincing and trustworthy by reason of
Its not being outspoken. It he, wH
keeping anything back, I was adopting
tbe surest means af forcing bit confidence.
And 1 meant, too, before* I was
through In this house of death, to send'
Alexander Burke about his business.
My plans concerning tbat gentleman,
however, Included an espionage that
would record every detail of his conduct for some days to come,
During the time I wss wilh Maillot
In the library, a number of Mr. Page's
business associates had gathered al
tbe houae for the purpose of performing such offices ss they could. Among
those waj Mr. Ulysses Whltc-of
White, Stoliebreaker ft White-Mr.
Pago's attorney. Tbis gentleman Informed mo that he waa quite certain
tho millionaire had never made any
ii'i.ii'iii.-iiiiin disposition of his property. In which event Maillot would inherit the whole estate This was a
contingency which the young man bad
already mentioned, and lor a few minutes Its reiteration made me grave.
After spending  some  unprofitable
j ilm,- with the assembled gentlemou—
! all men of ulTalrs who were Impatient
j lo ho off- -I sought out Stodger, finding him engaged in conversation witb
the coroner's deputy, a talented and
ambitious   young   physician    of   th*
name of Weutworlh De Breen.  Later
on Ur. Du Breen aud I became warm
personal (rlcnds, and   I   shall   have
much lo aay of him before concluding
I these "Reminiscences."'
I    He and I wont together to the laud
J Ing to Inspect tbe body, for tbere were
one or two matters concerning which I
, wa* desirous of hii opinion.   Dr. Do
s Breen wis u blunt, abrupt young (el
j low, not givon much to conversation
upon topics outside bis profession, and
eveu then his remarks were luvarla
bly terse and much to the polnl.
He waa very nearsighted, and while
be persisted In wearing nose-glasses,
It seemed Impossible for him to obtain
1 a pair lhat would remain on bla uoae
for more ihun a minute at a time.
They wore saved from dealructlon by
a black silk cord; and tbere waa something In tlie way wltb which ho would
adjust them and Ilx bla attention upou
a person or thing, which made you
feel tbat whatever escaped hia scru-
, tiny must bo surpassingly 'minute.
Aud such, Indeed, was tbo tact.
He examined the crushed skull,
silently and methodically, touching It
bere and there with lingers ai light
aud refined as any woman's. Not a
word did he utter until ol a sudden he
bout a scowling look of comproheusloii
upon the iron candlcatlck. Tho ouly
oraulal wound or contusion waa ou
the right temple.
"Who did this, Bwlft?" ho aakod.
"That's the problem, Doctor," was
my reply. "There are two chaps,
though, who are lu a dovll of a ticklish position. Since yoii'ro here uow,
It will probably be you who will conduct the Inqueat, and I'm a lmii cur
ious lu see how thu evidence strikes
1 you."
I Ho nodded, and after deftly recover-
; lug his glasses, cmplled Ihe pocluils.
; They yielded up nothing of the slightest consequence lo cither of us, and In
a moment Dr. De Breen hesitated and
frowucd over the body's left bund.
lie presently look II lu hia owu Inn d
anil scrutinized It Inteutly, I waiihlug
him Interestedly, for hu had stumbled
upon one ol the very points concerning
: which I wanted his opinion.   Next ho
turned quickly  to thu   right    hand.
Until members were bruised and dis-
I colored lu spots, and bore a number
I of abrasions.
j    Dr. De Breen now darted one of his
quick, ponelrating looks at me.
"Carrying somelhlng." lie suld con
clsely.   "They couliln'l bu nl. his grip
rapped him over Iho head."
"80 that's what you make of those

Mr. i lmii,■:. (1. Abbott, director of
tbe Astrophysical Observatory of the
-Smithsonian Institute at Washington"!!
bus advanced the theory that tlio sun
is composed of a gaseous or vaporous
substance, oxeept in the spots. He
holds that tho temperature is too groat
lo permit its being in a solid or liquid
condition. As tbe temperature attributed lo the sun, 6,600 degrees absolute,
would melt auy known substance, it
seems only reasonable to believe this
statement. He further states that the
specific gravity is too low to permit the
suit's mass to be other than gaseous.
The visible \-n" of Ihe sun is in
the form of a gaseous shell, known as
the photosphere. Although it is theoretically probable lhat the diameter of
the aun is slowly decreasing at a certain rate, due to radiation and i out rm-
iii.ii. il cannot be decided practically
as it would take 10,000 years to cause
an appreciable change in the solar diameter. Evan afler transmitting oner
;-. to the earth in the form of light ami
heal, through some 63,000,000 miles of
S|iace, duriug a period of about 50,-
000,000 years the suu is apparently
none the worse for wear.

handle it that it would lm lit to accommodate   belli y   li'lllllllll'    Mould .   Of

Drs. Newcombe and Marl'u wrote
intimating that their Hurhor Viow
Hanatorium ou Uml slroet required a
sidewalk on the north lids of the street
from Ht. Andrew's lo HI. Patrick's.
Board of works.
An anonymous letter merely signed
by a "llatepayer of the city nnd Mu
niripality" rompluininl bitterly of tlie.
j absence of signs imlicalng the niimns
and niiiiiben. nf streets in the city. On
Third street tliere was a small one, and
poasibiy one on Fifth, but from there
all the way up liotisdaie uvuttue they
were conspicuous by their absence.
Why was Ibere this manifestation of
Blackness in the city when the district
could iniiniii;,' its affairs otherwise!—
as wsb obvious directly one left Hfttli
Btreet .
The letter was given lo the Board
of Works to gloat over, tbe mayor expressing liias preference for letters that
were properly signed liy the writer.
The city engiueer was authorized to
hire the necessary temporary assistance
to prepare a full set of lllock plaus al
an estimated cost of $16.
The Vancouver Information and Tour
ml's Association wrote, thfodgh Mr. K.
K. Bows, a propos of its plaits to have
the city represented iu the Asso,in
lion. The i|uestion was referred lo the
local Hoard of Trade.
The said Hoard of Trade wrote de
daring that the lime was ripe to tuke
up the ijuostion of securing the Indian
Beeerves on the North Hhore and re
questing the courll to formally advise
the Indian department nf the Dominion government that it is desirous In
ths interests of the city to expropriate
the Indian mission al the earliest pos
sihle dste. Within Ilie last few
mnntliB the Board has received com
miiulratlons from two or tbree Indus-
Mil concerns desirous of locating on
Ibe Norlli Hbore ami is in the unfur
lunate position of having no induce
inenl In offer Ihem. Iteferrcd tu coin
nnlti'i- of tbe whole.
It waa arranged that on Thursday
evening Messrs. Hle|ilien ami Heaven
aliuuld wait upon lhe council in coin
milieu as representative* of the Hoard
of Trado to disucss Hie tjueatiou uf
Bites for public buildings for Nortli
Vancouver.
Mr. K. C. I'arry, a master plumber,
of tbe city, wrote asking thai lhe
plumbing liy law be altered t<i read
lhat "all persons taking mil licences
shall be certified plumbers." This,
Mr. I'arry claimed, would bcnclil lbc
city by assuring fur it Iimt class Imsi
nets men and hotter oiasa work.   '
Ur, H- H. Stevens, M.P., acknowledged tbs council's letter of recent
date and Intimated tbit bo would take
up the matter of the foreshore lease
Witb tbe department..
Tbe secretary of tbo school board
submitted a detailed eatlmate of sums
required by tbe board for tbo current
year for ordinary expenses, the total
amount being $85,183. Beferred to tba
Finance Committee,
A letter from Mr, II. 8. Hancock
jr. congratulating tbo mayor on bia re
accession and reviviug tba question of
a gas franchise waa referred to committee of tba wbole.
Tba secretary of tbe department of
railways and canals wrote advising tlm
council that tho postponed bearing of
the C, I'. B, application would take
place on Ijebruury Oth.
Mr. Htofuns wrote an expression of
opinion in this' regard. He agreed lhat
the north shore should be secured from
any exclusive control by a corporation,
no matter wbat It is and while highly
desirous that North Vancouver should
rave railway connections, he did not
think it was necessary to give any
special privileges to secure them, as
lie was thoroughly convinced that in the
hear future the city would have excel
lent facilities.
lavishly signed petitions were re
colved for communication with thu city
for that portion lying to the east and
northeast of I). I. til, the reconstruction of the bridge on Ursun's road,
and the grading and sidewalkiug of
I,inn Place, Moody avenue and Keith
mad, all of which were-handed over
to the Buard of Works.
Aid. Foreman then asked if tbo main
water pipe runuiug from the intake tn
tbe city was city property.
lining assured affirmatively tlie alder
man asked if tbe district niuulcipalty
got water from tbe pipes for tbo Lynn
Valley diatrict. Being again answered
affirmatively Aid. Foreman inquired
how many Lynn Valley eoniieclious
were attached to the main.
Aid. Dick had not got the number
They did not sell the water liy the
number of connections, but by cubic
feet.
Aid. Foreman believed lhat meters
were connected witb this pipe to regis
ter the amount of water the municipal
ity uses. This being bo, how much rev
inn,' was thu city deriving frum this
portiou of the district!
Aid. Fiiremau contended that these
meters had not been read. They were
out uf urder. Water was being suid al
III cenls per I"" cubic feet to the dis-
tret, yet the city, he understood, was
deriving no revenue. He considered

on the Pacific ocean. He emphasised
his remarks by pointing to the awakening of China following that Of Japan,
on one side of the IViiic, and tba defenceless condition of our own eoasts
on tbe other aide. The Premier moved
the adjournment of the debate, and It
is generally believed that when the
matter comes up again, the government
will meet the resolution half way by
moving an amendment to the effect that
since the (,'anailian ami imperial authorities aru now conferring ou naval
matters, in any action that should be
the outcome of lhat conference the leg
islature will urgu upun thu Dominion
to   provide  defences   for   the   Pacilic
COSBt.
One notable event of tbe week was
the appearance of the report of tbe
Boyal Commission un taxation. People
always like to have taxes reduced and
the commission's recommendations for
the abolition of the poll tax ((nd the
personal property tax, as well as the
raising of the exemption on income
tax be raised from $1,000 to ♦ 1,500 will
make welcome readier for many, bul
whether they will be enacted in legislation .citlier iii toto or in part, remains te be seen. It is most likely
that a compromise arrangement will he
reached, since the go'.eminent may not
feel like facing a net reduction of
about (.'100,000 in its revenue at one
stroke.
A hill which has occupied a great
deal of time in the legislature during
the past week wus that to validate the
revised ataiutes. The attorney-general
had to axplaiu in detail the changes
made by the revisers, and Ihuugh none
were of great importance, thoy consumed a great deal of time. The hill
was given third reading and received
the assent uf the Lieutenant-Governor.
ou Friday. As it is now out of the way
the path is clear for other legislation
that wili alsu have to be compiled and
, nns,,li.Inic.l at' sume future date, lu
Ihu meantime thu thrue large calf bound
volumes that contain the statutes of
tbe province up to the end of 111*7
may be purchased from Ihe King's
printer for I'M.
Nuw Ihut this is out of the way,
only three bills remain hofnre the legislature, the Fureetry Act, an act tu
validate the agreement as In luxatiun
between the Qraud Trunk Pacilic Kail
way Cumpauy and the city of Prince
Itupert, and an amendment lo the bus
pitals for the Insane Act Olher gov
eminent measures are expected during
the coming week.
Tbe city of Vancouver has again
been taught that the legislative chain
is nu stronger than ils weakest link.
Because ot une of its numerous charter amendments was advertised twu
days late iu the II. 0. Gasette thay
must pay fees of I6WI instead of (.'100.
The amendments to Ihe Nurlli Vancou
ver act have not yet been considered
by the committee on slumliug urders
Ihuugh il wss advertised fur Friday
last.
