Last week1 we; published a letter
froin'fthe city clerk ot Nanaimo, and
a statement sho"winK the profit w!,ich
the* waterworks ol -that city was earning for the people. " We had a communication handed in this week fi-oni
the Oily Clerk at Grand" Forks. from
which we gather the following interesting facts.'
"- The cost of the'Grand Forks water
plant wiis $50,000. The annual cost
of operating and riiaititaining includ
ing engineer's salary of $150 per
month and a charge of $175 per
month I'or power, amounts to $4,000.
The' income tbtals"'$8,000.. - The
charge lor services'to.private houses
is $i.50 per month with rcducii-m of
one-ihird if paid boloiv the 10th ot
each month. . Bath and toilets are
charged 50 cents extra fr each so
that if-these nre.both used in tlie
house the lull cliargo woukl be $2.30
per month with a reduction of one-
third leuv'mg a net charge i»fj% $1 70
per monili for what ''consumers here
have to.pay $2 50. ,The interest and
(inoual sinking fund charges are
$16607 ' Take "the engineer's sali-rv
and the ctiargo for power out .of the
expense account and'there would re
niain nnlv $400 of a running- expense
which, added to tlie $4660 for interest
and sinking fund would leave a profit ot J-204O to the City iir Grand Forks
and that with only 300 consumers
and a rate that is-80 cents a month
lower than" the Fernie consumer
pays.    '. -',     7 _.

,,   Very tew know that there is any
difference between the Crow's
Nest Pas-? Coal'Company and the
Crow's Nest Pass Electric Ligjit &
Power Co.,  Iloth  c-uripanlesjliavp
- their offices in the same building and
T*otn seem tb have the. snmo set ol
officials.   Therefore it lias long been
. the custom to regard these two companies as'one and the same thing.
Are they the sam--? We all know
Mr. Davies whose veracity no one
-will attack. - lie is the Comptroller
of the-Coal Company and therefore in
a position to know whereof he speaks.
At the last sitting of the connty court
" here Mr. Dayies was a witness' in a
case. He was asked the following
question; "Is the Crow's Nest Pass
Electric Light & Power Company a
subsidiary company of the Crow's
Nest Pass Coal Company?" After
some exchange ot argument bv thc
respective counsel as to whether Mr.
' Davies should answer such a question
the court ruled that he ahonld; wh'ere-
npon Mr. Davies made this reply;
"No it is not.   It is ah independent
- company."   We ask our readers to
' consider and  weigh • the answer ■ of
... Mr. Davies solemnly given'under
-j**oath. If"8 he states, and we have
pledged a statement," the one comp-
* any is independent of the' other, does
it not follow that 'allthis trouble about
fighting the coal company is so much
idle talk. If Mr. .Davies told the
truth, as we believe he did, then a
company fathered no doubt by' some
. nt the officials of the' coal company
,lk.tindependent thereof is causing
/"i'uKthc tempest and setting citizen

attempting to steal the - franchise?
We can only surmise the reason.
Thero are many who- suppose that
withoouho, good will of the conl
company Fernie and all its citizens
would go to hndos. To some tho cry
/'wit the cnnl company will do thin or
that is sufficient to make thorn sworvo

A Bettor Fire,Brigade
We do not see' why there can not
be an efficient fire brigade organized
and drilled to a state of efficiency.
There is lota of gocd material for such
an organization but so long as there
is m permanent and systematic organization there will be wasted time
nnd energy in theso ,'flre fights.
Would ir not be better to have an np-
prupriation get aside the, mnin-
lainiince of a paid corps d men, who
would * therefore bo placed under'"
obligations to turn'flu. at, any- nnd all
limes at the sound ot the bell, and
who would foe under orders of a chief,
or assistant chief in absence of the
former." Tho expenditure of money
Pa* the purpose of drilling these . wen
wonM bring f.'ir-better results than

fire hns been extinguished. We
trust that this mutter will be taken
up b>'the-council and sotiio such pi nn
as susrgesied above be acted upon.

'   '    Dummy Directors,
Wo Canadians are quite scire that
our insurance companies are so much
abovu. suspicion ' that  anything- resembling: ah  Equitable scandal in
this country would   be impossible.
Probably it is true that the insurance
business is managed more carefully
and on more conservative lines than
it is in the States; and yet, says the
Hamilton Herald, one of  tlie abuses
complained of in connection with the
Equitable scandal is   not unknown
here. .Glance at the lists "of directors
of some  of, oar prominent insurance
companies, and see if there are not
among these directors mon who don't
direct, and don't even attend  directors'  meetings,   but  who  are   paid
directors'fees solely for the use of
their names;   i*» it not something resembling a fraud  on   the  public to
publish the names of eminent men as
directors when they are in fact only
dummies?—Kdssland Miner.
