District Council Business
''Thai a municipal mail bag is not a
thing lu be trilled with was clearly
demount rated on Monday nigbt when
the district council sat In special tes
sion at thc-Municipal Hall, Lyuu Valley. The unavoidable absence on other
important district business of certain
of the councillors had /or two weeka
prevented the holding of the regular
session. On Monday cvenisg'tbe wro-
mulatcd correspondence was attended
to, a proceeding which occupied the
couucil fur a period of alpost two
hours. Most of thc other items oo the
agenda were purely routine and no

members uf which budy had personally
inspected Ihe mines. The council, how
ever, announced Ihul il was absolutely
impossible lu build a ruad lu these
mines this year, ull allotments .having
been already made.
A letter wus also" 'received frum the
Joint Civic Advertising Committee usk
iug the cuuucil tu reconsider ils deter

Interviewed by a representative uf

Htcwnri was uut iu position to state
at procisely what poiut or points cpn-
ui inel i.iii wuuld commence, but ho stated positively that clearing and grading gangs would be set at work within
a week or two ami that work wuuld be
carried on continuously frum that time.
He propuBcd to outer into coiisultutiun

ouce lu the general pulley uf Ihe com

Difficulties which had developed with
reference tu Ihe approval by the department uf ruilwuys uf certain see
tiuus uf 'ihc ruute map submitted by

reference tu the actual commencement
of cuustruclion, which hud nut been

The facts aro that; sume weeks ago

which it was necessary for bim to got
in order tu enahlu mo to givo a definite

litivewo hesitation In standing back of
as correct. Tho facta suggested in my
opinion given Alderman Foreman or at
lust the most Important of thorn have
uover been givon to Ibo council so far
a* I can gather from your roport. The
musl important thing to know ia "the
number of children other tbau Indians
fdr whom uo pay is received." Without tbis no definite opinion can be given
by auy solicitor. It would alsu be
well to kuow whether III cm' children
belong to llic cily of Norlh Vancou
ver or havo heen brought bore from
Tbi opiniun of lbc city solicitor ivas
given on a mis statement of facts. The
letter from the city clerk to the cily
solicitor, written at the mayors' dictation—as it states—says, "There arc
fifteen white children, all orphans."
Sister Mury Atny'B letter says, "Wc
are puid I'or the white children as the
parents ure able lu pay." From this
it woold appear that some, at least,
of the llfleen "orphnti" children men
lioiicd liy the mayor, havo parents.
This is slurliing, inasmuch as it con
stitutcs un entirely uew class of "or
pbatis;" as ull urpliuns hitherto known
huve bad uo parents.
Bister Mary Amy further says,
"Home while orphan children arc uever
paid for." Now just how many arc
included in tbia word "some" is tbe
all-important question) aud this the
Council did not lake tbo trouble to

why, at least, was lbe city solicitor

facts as contained iu her I, Her' If
my recoil*. Hop serves me  correctly
ypur fopprt slate, that thc council wero
tb»t night considering the weighty sub
Joct of tlie Turkish Bath By-lap, and
tills may have been the cum"' pf diverting their minds from so trifling a
subject as the taxation of a quarter
ofl in iiiiun dollars worth of property.
The »liiliile miller which this exetilp-
Ho* is ciaii»pi| mentions "orphan mA
ih-ulilnli- children." Aldeniiuu Fore
mun is quite correct in saying that tbp)
.ine" not include iiiiiiiius, wlm are wards
nl  tb* government, ppt destitute.  Nui
ther does ii include the newly discov
ered cluss. of orphans whose parents
ure able to pay for Ihem. These two
classes being eliminated, it leaves ouly
the "some" out of a tutal of fifteen
white children. We bave no luforma
tion as to tbe exact uumber Included
in tbis word "some"; but for the sake
of argument may safely presume iu
Iho absence uf better evidence tbat it
would not bo over three or four, or it
would have boun stated aa a third ur
more uf the afuresald fifteen, ii tbis
bo so, theu all tbat any educational
institution, such aa the Mission schuul
(or for lbat matter any kind of an in
slit ul inn i would bavo to do, would be
to take iu throe or four orphaus free
of cburgc and in this way have Ihc taxes that should be paid by tbe institution transferred to the shoulders oi the
rest of tiio community. Tbis would upply lo even tbe Chesterfield school not
withstanding the "incongruity" of the
comparison in the opiuiou uf the mayor.
It is not a qucstiou as to whether the
council may feci inclined tu grant ex
emptiuu tu auy pstrticular party, but
whelher tbey have a legal rlgbt to do
su. It is an easy thing to be generous
with money which one docs not have to
earn; liul a public trustee should be
at least as careful with public money
us he would with bis own.
Thc suggestion that Alderman Fore
mun lius tryiug lo "down tbe or

to, us Al,l.■iinini Foreman is well ami

the herald of a new em nt motor lnnd
and thu fororunner uf n large army uf
tourists. That ho has uot encountered
serious diillcultics during his journey
westward is proved by the remarkably
guud time he is milking, he having only
taken eleven days tu make the trip
frum Iiniuii.-. to Toronto. If it is possible for him to continue his journey
ut Ihis rule uf speed ho will reach the
