Mayor Gillett delivered a
short address at the close of
the meeting to the council
aiid citizens in attendance and
expressed his satisfaction at
again assuming the duties of
the chief executive of this
city. He expressed also his
determination to do all in
liis power to eliminate any
evidence of one-man rule in
connection with the transacting of city affairs, and trusted
that the different chairmen of
committees would sec to it
that all work that came under
their jurisdiction would be
carefully handled and efficiently carried out.

The Herald wishes the new
council every success. This
paper strenuously opposed the
election of the mayor and
worked hard to elect men to
the council who were defeated.
Should occasion arise when
the Herald deems it to the
best interest of the people of
tin's city to oppose the workings of the council as a whole
it will do so without any
quibbling, In the meantime,

inability to market its bonds, is
now out of construction funds.
It has been estimated that it will
take $6,500,000 to finish the work
and secure the completion of a
real link of communication with
the rich interior of the Province.
"If the government," said Mr.
Campbell, "should at present desire to proceed with the Peace
River connection it would have
I to implement its original guarantee by an interim loan, or otherwise assist the company  with
funds that would for the time being take the place of the proceeds
expected from the sale of the
bonds.   Thus so long as conditions continue as they are, thej
rapidly growing  traffic  of thej
Peace River country will be di-'.
verted to Edmonton and the east
instead of following the easier, j
shorter and more natural route j
to tidewater on the British 'Col-1
umbia Coast."
Mr. Campbell further stated
that the preliminary inquiries
which had already been instituted
by the committee showed that
the Pacific Great Eastern Railway Company had made every
legitimate and bona fide effort to
continue construction on the basis of the original understanding
with the Government, and that
the present financial difficulties
were due entirely to the dislocation of the money markets of the
world.
"Just what ways and means
will be devised to place the company in a position to carry on
despite the war, is a matter," said
Mr. Campbell, "which must be
decided by the government and
the Legislature, and the report
of the special committee of which
I am chairman, will be purely
advisory."
Mr. Campbell made it clear
that he personally had the conviction that a pressure of events
which could not have been foreseen when the undertaking was
initiated will compel the government to exhaust every means to
expedite the completion of the
Pacific Great Eastern.
"Reports from London," he
said, "are to the effect that there
is every likelihood of a tremendous emigration from Europe after
the war, and that there is bound
to be a big rush to Canada.
"British Columbia will thus
have a great opportunity to get
the settlement of which she
stands so badly in need.
"A great and pressing duty,
therefore, rests upon British Columbia to be prepared to receive
this flood of immigrants, and I
can conceive of nothing better
calculated to meet the situation!
than the opening of the rich interior of the country through the
speedy completion of the Pacific
Great Eastern Railway."

Love in a Cottage
The happiness of those em-'
barking on the "love in a
cottage"   idea   depends
largely upon the class of,
cottage occupied.
Very Well:
The   badly   built,   poorly;
laid-out cottage is destructive   to    happiness    and
creates   uncongenial  surroundings.
Houses Too
We are architects, builders
and contractors. We built
the first frame building in
ihis district and we are
still in the business.
