Lending Actor Dead
. Sir Henry Irving died very suddenly
after taking his usual part on.'tlje stage
at._--Bradfiird^-' England.-- >,Oct;, . 13th.
'foli'ii Henry Brodrihb,.' was „born at.
Keiiuori,.]'eb. (Jth, 183S,'aiid was 67
years! 8,nionth"s, and 7 days old when
an attal-k of syncope reiiioved him fropi
the stage of life's theatre. .Sir Henry
Irving bad been' for long years tlie'
leading character upon the English
speaking stage, aud did much to elevate the calling to which I14J gnve his
life. He was an example of what long
continued, pains-taking effort can accomplish, rniher'ban tlitil of the meteoric brilliancy of nenius.
"Itshallbe the-'duty ofthe Municipality or Comp.iny to
provide a sufficient supply of water for the use of the Municipality or unincorporated locality in the prevention and extinguishment of-fires, and for such purposes to provide,
equip, place and maintain a sufficient number of hydrants in
such places as may be most readily available for such purposes, and the same to keep supplied with a sufficient quantity and force of.iwater."       _ .      .
And this Act is by Sec. 20, Chapter 46, 1900, made ap-
plicable-to the C.. Nf. P. E. L. & P. C. o.
Last Thursday nij-lit seemed unfavorable for tho transaction of city buidiiess.
With Robins in Foit William, Wallace i*ono to tho races, and Cree and Herch-
iner othei wise engaged, the Mayor aud Alderman Tuttle and Trites had a lonesome time of it wuiting for a quorum and finally pave it up as. a bad job and
went homo. A special meeting waa called for Friday moriiing" at which the
Mayor and Aldermen Tuttle, Cree, Trites and Herchmer were present.   ,
The bylaw subject was dealt with and five new ones were started'on the way
for acceptance"or rejection by the voters on the 80th of this month. When these,
bylaws had passed.tliei committee stage and the committee had risen and re-
ported, Alderm'in Herchmer treated tho Council, and tho few spectators pre«ont to
an address lu which ha'dwelt feelingly upon tho martyr like conduct'of the city
coiuicil and of the uncalled for abuse that,had been'heaped upon their devoted
heads by an unfeeling ungrateful public. He spoke of how thc Council had used
every eudeavor to Ee'cure from the C. N P. E. L. & I\Co. tho best bargain possible. . .After having tried in, vain to raise money upon the debentures-voted, by
the,pe.ople, and stated that their efforts had resulted in utter failure in theendeav
or to'sell the water debentures.' .He did not, however, read Peacock's celebrated
letter or refer to the Simpson proposal to place the bonds at par or better if he
were commissioned to place the securities.
Peacock Vletter,, coming from a company owned and controlled by tho com J
pany most interested.iu "defeating the people of Fernie in their effort to build and
own their own water works, seems to take the courage out of these councillors
and make babies of them.        , ■ . ;   !"      . ■
Some peoplo in Nelson insisted that it was impossible to place the debentures
of that city at, any wboye near par, in face of the opposition of a private corporation bent upon* defeating the project, but the bonds were disposed of at a
good (igureand the power plant is being constructed.
The Mayor responded with a'hero! here! to Alderman Herchmer's plaint as to
the abuse in euch titgryiA tone as to remind one of the old time Aniens iu a good
old fashioned Methodist prayer meeting,

"7ffterbeing*tbus rfelf^iyeiTof pent up, feelings,, the council went on with the

Bylaw 19 authorizing Iho borrowing of $5000'to equip and maintain nn efficient

decided reluctance' to placing any fundi* at the dlipnaal of future Councils it i«.
presumed that he will Us'eJijs influence ugainst this 35,000 scheme and it may bo
defeated.'-   '   '. •*v7'^-'.'..,, ,_ .,""''
Bylaw 22 !s a sugar coated snare which if adopted at this time will placo the
city in a still worse position than at preseift as regards the ownership of it's own
water system, nnd,thisi fact explains the, anxiety for Us pasna'^* in .certain quar
ters.' There is noiimiicdiiitfl necessity for its pas-iago at this time as nothing
can be dono towards installing it until next'suinuier..
" If the people of Fornlo should be so foolish as to put In tx eewor system, before
they do a wntor system thoy will only he aiding to fasten fetters upon them*
selves for all time to come. A sower system without wator Is of no, use and
after taxing themselves with tho cost of It they would havo to «o.to the Klectrie
Unlit nnd Powor Co. to mako terms and it has recently developed in an unmis-
tnkeahlo'manner, what such terms are to bo. Mr. Lindsey practlcfllly Bays to
the city that unli*.*s his terms as to hydrants and water rates aro complied with
ho will'not glvo us fire protection and this in face'of tliu fact 1 hat llm law com-
pols his Co. to do so, It may bu that his Co. can demand payment for water for
flro protection, but there is no doubt about llio compnny being bound to furnish
tho protection., it is hardly to bo believed tliat the rate of coinponmitlon Is thn
real objiv-t aimed at by Mr. Llndsoy. Ho has rofuncd point blank to sitrn an

pyHtem at nny tlmo fil thu future that tho compnny may b.*- decide, notwithstanding that he ni-rces to sell his old plant to tho city nt tho nnd of Ion years.

As to bylaw 21),   It looms such a ridiculous proposition vloweil from  the
Htniidpnliit of tho Mimiclpfillty that It Is to lm wondered nl, that thnn Hlioiild   be
w'HHtodlii ludwrniniloii.   True Mr Llndsiiy has aiuo'id.ulhls former Hug-to*
sii;rg*'9tionB and that Mr. Luidsc,*.
adopted them at the suggestions of
the absent bodied councillor now so
journing in the distant city of Foi!
"William. The one particu'ar clausi
that was of any value to the City o
Feruie iu the agreement aa drawn u-
by city solicitor l^awe. was pre
emptorily and emphatically Uirnci
down by Mr. Lindsey, and this pari 1
it tells tho whole story. This clausi
as written by Mr. L»we, wa
numbered 7, and read as follows:
"And that should the city purchase
the said water works system of the Co.
at ai.y time, under the powers herein
contained, the company shall not at
any time or times thereafter,
directly, by itself, or in connection with any other company or cor
poration,- cany on or operate any
waterworks or system of waterworks,
or supply, or attempt to supply any
person or persons, corporation or cor-
por.itioui*, other than The Crows Nest
Pass Coal Co , Ltd.,.within two miles 01
the preseiit boundaries of the City oi
Fernie. nor sha'l, nor will, at any time
thereiifior, do, or cause to bo done, am
act, matter or thing whereby, or b>
reason, or by means whereof, thu said
city shall or may bo injured or damnified in tin) operation and mainteuaucr
of the said water works system to be
purchased hereunder, or in the sale or
supply of water to any pereon or per
sons, corporation or corpoiatibus within Biich radius.'"
The clause would make tbe deal a
real sale to the city of'Fernio of the
water plant which clauses 7 and 8 ii.'the
agreement iir now submitted mak-.i a
piutense of doini*. , If the agreement
as now submitted wero to bo adopted
tho company could turn over their old
plant at the- end of each succeeding
ten years ac the price of a new one,
and sosro 011 indefinitely in the water
business, magiianiinously allowing the
cily to appoint arbitrators who?e duty
would be to ascertain the cost of a new
pIaiitinorderth.it the city should relieve tho company of the necessity of
renewing their old plant at their own"
expense. What a beautifully arranged endless chain machine this

Sir William Mulock has resigned
tho position of Post Master General
jn the Dominion Cabinet, and is retiring Irom hc.ive life on account of
jll health.
Sir William . proved Jtpself an
able administrator of tlio postal • department and succeeded in transforming an annual deficit ot $800,000
- into a surplus, while at the same
time reducing the rate ol postage.
The .only adverse  criticism  that
could be passed upon his policy  wns
his failure to keep up with the nepds
uf the people in tha far west, 'whero
the continued increase of population
and the extension "of new railroads
into new districts calls for a thorough
. .knowledge of the wants and conditions ot this "great, west" to enable
the postal  department io  keep ' up
■yvitii the  march of the  immigrant.
..'    A residence in the interior where
mails are infrequent and irregular
would be a beneficial   preliminary
•--_   education for a Postmaster General.
As an instance of what often happens
in this western country, we wish io
call attention to the lack of proper
mail service between Fernie and so
*    nearby a neighbor as Elko.    There
is    one   mail    train   a day each
way on the'C. P. R, and one train
'   eaoh "way on the Great Northern,
bufc=witn=8il--ti.i63e-tr!iins~runn...vr,   ..c=
cannot send a letter from Fernie to
Elko and get  an  answer  the same
day,      Letters ,' mailed    here    go
through to .Cranbrook where they lay
over and come back to Elko by  the
ncxtmail so that an answer cannot
be sent by the same train,
This is an inexcusable 6tate of affairs
and we think the  matter has  been
brought to the attention of the  do-
piirtiiient, butas yet no r.-sults -have
been attained.   We believe the- lirst
duty of thc postofiico departinon-; h
to provide thc best jxis-siblo soi vico to
the people and wo trust thut whoever
succeeds Sir Wlllinin Mulock in t.he
position ot head of tho postal dopiirt
ment will be a i?iun who is hi miliar
with thc conditions in tho wcb., and
alive to tho Just that rapid communication by mull is ono of the iic.ct'Bsi-
tins to bo pi'ovid.id by  thut department, " 0
The tact thut ,lt takes longer to

endorsed this resolution and the Nelson arid- Kc^land'penple can bo de ■
ponded uj.cn to push this scheme
with "ei:ei*gv.
Wh:it are tho merchants and people
-.( Ft-rnie going fo do about this effort
to side track ihe"proposition to extend
the very good road already -exUtincr
from il'Vrnie to Coal Cn*.ek; on into
-he Flathead valley? 'Five hundred
dollars have already been expended
by the city and- board of trade in thi:-
project,. and why should we go t1'
sleep and lose what 1ms already beei
expended and let the rond go where
it is cert-iin to "divert tr.\.le from onr'
city Hi*d tbi-ow the travel'that should
come to us, to other towns ?   Do not
let us delude ourselves bv' thinking
wc ha\e done all that is necessary.
The trad-' of thcFlathead country
can be brought to Fernie if our people
make continued and united effort to
briii" it this way.   It is of the utmost
importance to the future of our city to
have every possible avenue tor trade
and travel opi ned U|, und no com] el
ing city is going to aid iis to do this.
A,meeting of our own board should
bo called at once and every member,
every'meichant and every hotel man
should be there, ready to assist with
time  ai d  money to hasten   action
upon the project ot the extension of
the road from Coal Creek to the Flathead.
It developed at the Nelson board
meeting mentioned above, that the
Hon. Wm.' Fielding bad suggested to
some ot the Nelson people that a petition be; presented to the Railway
Commission asking for the building
of the gap In the C. P. Ii. between
Kootenay Landing and Proctor. A
committee was appointed to take this
mutter in band and to report at the
next regular monthly meeting.
The people of. Nelson are, wide
awake and no problem is too big for
them if it involves futare*',good to
their city, We should, be as wide
awake to our future growth as Nelson or any other town. "A strong
pull, ai.d a long pull, and Ja pull
together" will get us what we want.

We do our pumping  by . electricity.
The   town   puitltased ,. two    electrical
puinpa fiom the   Allis," Chalmers  Bullock Co. at a cost of.3lli.850, which price
included the installing of them at Loth
bridge and turning them over   in  per
feet runniii'j-  order-   ■ The power   for
these puinpa is supplied by the Loth
bridgo.Eleciric Co. Ltd., who hold a
live year contract with'the town    We
pump at the present time 250,000 gallons a day and this costs us oo an a'ver-
ige' of  §215 a month for power.   We
nave only been operating our system
eiiice lhe 1st of April  and so far   ou'r
revenue has averaged 81,000 a month
This is sufficient to pay all exi-enses ol
operating and interest on the deben-
tures.. We have also a frontage tax of
5 coots a foot   that   is   applied   to   all
propertyjravers'-d bythe water .pipe,
fbis was found necessary on account'of
Lethbridge beinft'so scattered and large
blocks of lots held hy   non residents
.don;' which the pipo had to pass to get
to the inhabited portions, so we applied
this frontage tiix on all laud-, thereby
reducing tho nctuftl cobt of the water to
the, consumer.
I am enclosing you a schedule of
rates adopted here and which so far,
with one or two exceptions has_ proved
Wo have beenexperimentlnj* a little
with wood pipe and ou the whole it
g-ives good satisfaction but is apparently very difficult to repair. We have
about two miles of this pipe, but I think
it is too early, yet tb say very, much
about it. .
- The town of Lethbridgo is. running-
the waterworks entirely separate from
the municipal business, hiiving a seri-
arate bank account and set of books;
tho object being to make this department pay for itself. . Wo have at'the
present time nearly 400connections and
these are being added to so\ that "our

Dear Sir,- ... ,
I beg to acknowledge receipt
of vour favor.of tlie filth, of Octobt-r
and' in reply beg to --ive you the following information, which I trust will
be of Bervice to you.
Tho town of Lethbridgo has laid
122 fi-et of 12 inch main
GSOfifoetof 10 •*.*     "    '"

.■md iiistidled 53 hydrante.    They also
laid down 2-1,080 feet of tile sewer.
We paid the contractor for Inying-
tills pi - 0*547,897.52 and hisvwnrk coir
sistcd simply of exi'avatlni» and laying
the pipe, Ho furnished hlu own sup
p'iisg for so doing, other than fho pipe
it'-elf By -.-uppllcs, 1 moan load, cl-iu*
nnt, giiHliutf*, hump, yarn, etc
'lhe total cost of our system will, I
expect, bo  In   tho   uoluhborhood  of
We flnd Irom the table of rates,
which Mr. Bowman furnishes us,that
two taps, one bath and „one water
closet in a- private house costs the
consumer $27 per annum or $2.25 per
month,-a single tap costing $1.66.- It
will be seen by Mr. Bowman's,statement that it costs $215 per month to
run tbe .pumping. plant which, is a
charge that Fernie would not have to
meet. The total-cost of the Lethbridge -plant is■ just' about double
plant here would cost. The number
of consumers acLuthbridge is 400, the
revenue $ 1,000 per -month. Now it we
take from this,$1,000 the $215. which
it costs the Lethbridge people to pump
their watiir,*' we have $785 per month
from cohsiuuers." Our system costing
iialf'as.mnch as that at Lethbridge,
ihe fixeiii*-charge3 would be just hall
ns niuch'and as that plant is bringing
in revenue - enough to meet fixed
ch.rge-3 it follows that wo (ould 11 ee
tixed charges of a sysleni ccsting
lialfns much, with a revenue ofjiihi"
one halt $785, or $392.50 per month.
At the present rate ot $2 50 per
month just 157 consumers would meet
these charges.

An advertisement will not "stand out,"'
ii an eye-catching, way, if it is crowded

, The., advertiser who has learned
things about publicity is as careful to
provide space in which his.advertisement may come5" "out and.be separate
as he is to make tlie text matter dignified and convincing.
In a little town • between Cleveland,
Tenu., and Chattanooga, il was the
purpose to give a donation to the colored minister. .One of lhe brothers-in
the church volunteered to make a col-
lection oftlie offeringiffrom the various
homes of the, members, and, an old
colored woman, somewhat well to do,
loaned her cart and a' pair of "steers to
this brother to facilitate .the gathering
of the donation goods.' After ho had
been throughout the neighborhood and
secured a reasonable load of. groceries,
and clothing lie drove off to Chattanooga and sold- everything, including
the cart and the steers;- pocketed the
proceeds and'departed for Atlanta on a
visit,, to his, relatives. Consternation
and then indignation reigned supreme
in the home community , when it had
become known that lie had gone.
After some time the culprit drifted back
in deep contrition; .but. having spent"
all. I.ndignatioifoiice more arose-to a
while heat, and it was determined to
give, him a churJi "trial without waiting for any legal formality. -The' day-
was set, the meeting was crowded; the
preacher presided, and after a statement of the charges he announced thai
the accused would-be given a chance to
be heard.- He"went forward and took
the place of the preacher0on the' platform. ■•  '•-- -     ',.   -

woven into verse.-, Here is the poem:.
-I love the world with all its brave endeavor,

to say)—
- Because of all tlio sorrows nnd the sinning,
Like this—who did betray?

How Jinny Such
A human derelict, 11 miserable man--
weal*, wayward nnd dissolute,, moved
by remorse, dospiiir or tho conscious**
ncss of his own unworthihe-.s, committed Htilcldc- in Clovelniid, Ohio, rec-
unlly, niul In his pocket was found a
letter from his wife, living In iinotlicr
city, which tends as follows:'
and the brooks and the country walks
-.-the old happy days in the flat,*. Are
you letting it go? I Ii.-ive believed ih
you.. Before we wore m.\rried' I' was
afra.id you were' in danger, * hut I, believed the good would triumph. I can
.believe in yoii still—oh, so heartily,
wilh just a little encouragement.
, My-dear, you are the heart of .my
lieart.- I have dono all''I could. If T
have not: been*-".acceptable, God pity
me'. I, wpuld give my, life to,make
you the man you' were in tended, to be—
if'I knew bow.' Sometimes I have
given without fivail. ''
,-'. This was your time, this is your time
to s-how what manner of man you arc.
I write severely but my heart goes out
to *you, and you know il in spite of my
works.' 1 shall send the money though
it will be a little less than $40. Your
leh gram broke my last $40. It is just
as well, for I want to know what you
are doing.- If you return, it means you
need my nursing and will resume your
work,as soon as you are able. It must
not mean thai you}.have petered out
and have no backbone. That ..J will-
not face. Ask yourself if you have
done the best you could.'
Don't send more telegrams, collect
for I am sending you all my mo ney.
You know how much I had when, you
left, and I-have no more. Don't think
I don't love you,,'. You know I do,'
but don'L delude yourself into thinking
lhat there is any .work in New York
that is'sure, or any that is possible if
you are not doing right.    ', v -
Only a woman could write such a
letter* as that. A man having such a
wife—loyal,-loving, sensible", tenderly
sympathetic, yet insisting on courage
and noi excusing the lack of. it—ought
to be able to succeed, to conquer weakness and assert himself a man-. But
here is one who'failcd, 11s others-have
tailed before him. ' It is an !oId story-
repeated; one of life's tragedies. -"'Before we were married I was afraid you
were.in danger, but 1 believed the good
would triumph." 1 How many'woincn
have made that mistake? It is a
strong love.tha't survives the misery of
it. , The love and the faith of women
fire sublime, but to each may come the
sunset,of hope. The hope and sacrifice of ihis wife end al the grave oPa
self murderer. ' Her love may live on.
The letter, so full of pathos of,loving
appeal, wifely devotion and womanly
hope and courage^was of course, not
intended for publi cation.. The close of
the tragedy gave it publicity.
