that tbe 43,500 policy covering tbe uf
v-li-ii buildings, flimitiirc, sto. on the

K       ply to tbe letter, asking it tbo policy
-, nan he prolonged until tho oipiration

the board's intent imi to try and consolidate tbe dates.
1 A communication from the Mersey
Pocks and Harbor Board relative to
the prevention of corrosion to pontoons
upon which Bubject Manager Heard
had interrogated them, was ordered tV
be fled. /
Mr. A. Qrlndell of Vancouver wrote
In reference to the leasing of the re
frsshment service en the forriei, and
made formal application for tbe privilege on all the company's boats to cs
tor to passengers with refreshments
sucb as soft drinks, lea and coffee,
tubacco, fruit, etc. st a rental mutual
ly agreed.
Manager Heard waa asked to accumulate data ou tbe subject.
The msyor meiitioueil lo Iho board
tbat tbe old wharf had juat beon ro
moved and a new one installed without
' )the loss of a singlo ferry journey. "I
do not recall," aaid hia worship "a job
of tbat magnitude done on this coul
nl- eipeditionsly and the hearticsl
thanks of Iho board are due to Mr.
Heard and his assistsnls. It was an
undertaking in which tho least slip
' might have loft the old dock half way
out and the uew one half way In, tn
the emliarraasment of the traffic, for
perhaps a whole day."
('apt. Calei coniidered il ao excel-

worth commenting on.
A motion of appreciation was there

hility of making Ihe ferries bonded
carriers aod having a bonded ware
house uu tbe wharf with a customs of
Acer in charge. Tho main difficulty
w-as whether Iho ferry board would
tako upun itself tbe responsibility of
carrying bonded goods..
The mayor asked wbal this rcipon
sibillty might entail.
Mr. Boult thought the ferry company
would be liable for duty until the goodi
were delivered. Tbey would have to
bave a ihed under tbe customs lock.
He movJd (snd waa supported by Mr.
Wright) tbst Mr. Bushby, tbe customs inspector, be ssked to advise the
i ferry board as lo exactly what will be
required of ihem. This motion was

Managor  Hoard   reintroduced    the

I coal versus oil being still in sbcysucc
Mr. Heard staled Ibat bii estimate of
18,000, a sthc amount likely to be saved
annually by tbe company of oil fuel be
used, wu very lew in order to be on
tbe safs side/ Tbe boats now consumed
about 14 tons of coal per day, or ap
proximately 11,110 toni per annum. Tbo
,-.     yearly rest wu 825,687. On the other
hand iif, barrels of oil were equal '"
jlne ten of coal aud the total cost per
annum would be about #17,836.    Thll

•V^l 'mints could be made with the Imperial
Oil Co. to have tbem lay down feod
'   pipei from their rciervoir on the Van
couvcr wbarf.
Mr. Heard intimated that there wero
' three burner systems suitable for ferry
use, namely the Kofting, the Dohl and
(be Wallicnd. Six tanks would be
requirsd, tbree to each boat, and of a
capacity of 1900  gallons  each,
The beard resolved tbat speciica

Mr. A. (1. Ferry, local manager fnr the
B. i'. Electric Bailway, wrote in reply
to council'e letter on the overcrowding of tbo cars at certain bourn. He

(loun. Hriduian pointed oul lhat day

council's pld promise that the Keith
road should be kept in perfct shape
and that the marine drive should be

Coun. Bridgman contended tbat this

The report of tbe Commission on
Teution was laid on the table In the
Victoria House on Monday. Tbe ro
port aa printed makes a book of thirty
eight pages and ths evideneo takon
before tbe Commission—which is now
being printed, will require upwards nf
HOO pagot. The entire report is Intended for general distribution as soon
as received from the presses.
Tbo salient features uf tho reeom-
iiniioliiiiuio. mads by Ihe Commission,
as summarised iu lha repurt are as fol
Tbe abolition of Ihe poll tai.
The abolition of the persouai properly
The abolition of lhe lai on improve
An Increase In Iho income lax ox
enption from 11,000 to $1,60(1, with
aa additional exemption of $!!()0 lor

Increased taxation upon certain

Abolition of exemptions from in

Iti'iln.iiuii of tbe tax on cuke.
A general reaattssmeiil with the
view of creating au equitable value

stay be found possible to reduce Ibe
rate of taxation.
The   recommendations   are   oompre
htasive In Iheir acope and while tbey
naturally  do not and could  not  em
body all tbe ideas whioh were advene

Commlasion—many of whieh wore eon

The abolition of the personal properly

thoae who bave hitherto been compel

Act is to be arrived at. Uniform
procedure in thia respect wuuld constitute a protection against auy possible
attempts at ovation and wuulil extern!

Tbe abolition of the lax upon Improvements, with respect to provincial
lands, would be a pronounced forward
step. It would eusourage tho owner
who wishes to improve bis prtiperly
by ensuring thu fact that ho would
not be Imliil to any ponalty for bis
enterprise in ths way of taxos upon

wise, facilitate tha acquisition of pro

who would prqeeed to improve the pro

The increase of exemption of interne

the present eust uf living in Ibo pro
viuce. Tbe provision for exemption
bocause of children is a departure as is
also the proposed iuereased taxation
upon very large incomes, Iho philosophy
of whieh is readily apparent and Hie
reasonableness of which will readily
bo admitted. The ground upon which
the recommendation of an exemption
of $11,1101) on income derived from agrl
culture, is based is not so apparent lo
Ibe one unversed in the infonnation
which was in the bands of the Cum

Whether Hie government intends

Have You Figured the Loss
From "Busy" Signals?
Suppose a customer is aboul lo order somelhlng ur
olher over your telephone. The operator finds your
line or lines engaged. The customer must wait—or
order somewhere else. Maybe he chooses lo wail—-
calls again—again finds your line or lines busy.
Thai means a possible loss of a customer.
The business man needs adequale telephone service for the accommodation of his
business and his customers.   When you lose
'customers through "busy" signals, il has
-     tixuHifovcd that your telephone facilities
are inadequate*'"
People who gel business make il easy for iheir cut-
lomers lo gel them and have the number of telephone
lines iheir business requires. I lie number should be
determined by lhe amount of use al the BUSIEST

Contrary to the usual practice lhe Assessment Notices for

according lo liic I ami Registry munis.
Up lo the present, purchasers have been in the habit ol
notifying lhe cily aulhonlies lhal the piopcity had changed hands
so that notices ol assessment and taxation should not go astray.
This loun of registration of owners has heretofore been deemed
sufficient for cily purposes, bul owing to a recent decision the
city council is advised by its solicitors to recognise these owners
only who a|ipcai on the records of the I .md Registry Office.
Unfortunately a great many never register their deeds or agreement!.

that an Inestimable amount at good

It was highly important that children ba givap an opportunity to play.
They cannot develop as ilicy nughi
unless they be given this chance which
was one ot tba most natural things in
tba world. Tbey wtre thus prepared'
for more serious work, just as the kitten chasing a hall was getting educated in the proper pursuit of a mouse.
Therefore the society lialf established
many playgrounds in England, ami
many prominent ladies and gentlemen
wore giving their tinie to the proper
education of the children,
But after all there must be love.
Tbey might attend to the child's every
physical need, but if love were absent
it would die and he would go as far as
lo say in his opinion religious training must enter into the life of the
child if the proper results were to bo
obtained. He told in this connection
of a celebrated African chief, who, ou
being asked what constituted the might
of the British Empire, replied, "tbe
Bible." Iu Iiii. opinion any nation
which would keep out the'Bible would
soon come to trouble.
It might be argued that this elaborate care over the child was very costly.
So it was, but if money were not er
ponded in this way it would go for
other taxes, which would assuredly
follow the neglect of the child. . ('rime
and ignorance itivarialily weut hand in

The parents of Jesus might well
have felt themselves escmunl frpm the
exactions of tbe ceremonial law. Tho
advent of the Habo had beep heralded by angels, and His extraordinary
character had been indicated by many
tokens. They might havo felt thein-
Bolves elvatcd above ordinary Jewish
parents, They fulfilled all righteousness. Ii) this thoy aro good examples
for all time. Salvation and Savior arc
never separated. When Simeon saw
the Habo,   ho exelajiped    (literally),
"Mino eyes havo Been Thy saving ap
paratus," Jesus heaps up no morlt
available for "a apart (rom His own
person. In a 'fork ago—amid tlio gon
oral, indifference—Simeon ' apil Anna
shine with peculiar luster. ^Though all'

tp describe hia ofiico and work. Bread,1
water, light—how long could life ho
sustained without those elements! It
is not a mere question of sentiment,
this receiving of Jesus—it is u question
of surviving or perishing. Without
Him we die spiritually as certainly as
wo would die naturally without bread,
Water and light.

How the s'sii"'! wireless telegraph stations aid navigators is little known to
mBiiy, says W. M. Thompson, operator
at Tatooah. He said: "There is seldom a day passes that this Btation is
not called upon for information as to
weather conditions liy coastwise and
transpacific steamers, relaying messages
regarding the taking on and discharging of cargoes, coaling, correcting hills
of lading, etc.
" li'.. iiiilv tho captain of a transpacific vessel arriving from the Orient
called up and asked us to locate him.
He said he saw a light but did not
know whether it was Tatoosb light or
not and he could not afford to guess
about il. One of the operators here
look a compass ami going outside swept
the horizon for a light. One was
faintly acen in the distance, the exacl
hearing from bis light taken, and going
hack to the key he told the command
ing officer that his light was seen ami
gave him bis bearing. A message
came back thanking us for the infortnii
lion. Tbo vessel proceeded up Hie
straits wishing us a happy New Year.
