Ratepayers of Ward
Three Hold Meeting
The Meeting of Ward Three
ratepayers last night was attended by a goodly number in spite
of the fact that several other
meetings were in progress in the
city. Mr. H. <■'. Perry was elected to the chair, and Chas. N.
Leathley was appointed secretary;
of the meeting.
The meeting was about evenly I
divided as to the formation of ai
ratepayers' association, one half
wishing to organize last night, j
and the rest preferring to leave |
the matter until near or immediately after the coming civic elections.   After a great deal of dis-1
cussion it was finally decided to
form a Ward Three Ratepayers'
Association but to leave the election of officers until   the   next
At the special council meeting
held in the City Hall, Thursday
night several matters of importance were dealt with by the
mayor and alderman. Among
these, the question of fire protection received consideration.
A new by-law was passed regulating the cleaning of chimneys.
This is a very important and vital
matter, and it is to be hoped that
the regulation will be respected.
The annual meeting of the
Central Conservative Association will be held in the club
rooms of the Prince George
Conservative Association on
Monday, December Kith, at
2 p.m. The various conservative associations of this riding
are entitled to send one delegate each to this meeting.
Matters of importance will be

that all delegates will be

Kaiser's "Peace Terms."
I'aiis.     Georges Clemenceau,
former premier of Prance, writes,
in his paper :
"When the Kaiser reaches Con- j
stantinople, he will propose terms,
but he won't try to impose them.
He will halt midway between1
Riga and Bagdad, to say to,
France, England, Russia, Italy!
and Belgium, not 'this is what 11

be: 'No, we do not want your
peace terms, We never shall accept them.
" 'Your people are beginning

something tells us we shall get

Majorities to Order.
If fortune should finally favor i
us in respect of Mexbo there
will presently be some voting,
down there. The people prob-j
ably will vote as to whether or j
not they want Carranza for
president; then on a new consti-!
tution; and perhaps on various
other matters.
Probably the voting will mean
nothing in particular,  ln a coun-
try like Mexico it seldom does
mean anything,   As long as he'

machinery well in hand Diaz was
re-elected by tremendous majorities.   He   would   doubtless   be!

An unusually good bill is being
provided by Mr. Adams at the
Dreamland Theatre to - night.
The regular Hearst-Selig weekly
will be shown. This feature of
the Dreamland shows is a very
popular one, and the pictorial
weekly for to-night is especially
interesting. A two-reel Kalem
feature, "Within an Ace," tells
an absorbing story in true, breezy
western style. "Fatty and the
Shyster Lawyer," a real comedy
rounds out the bill,
.On Monday evening another
Kalem feature is promised. This
is entitled "The Brand." and
cowpunching plays a conspicuous
part. "Mysterious Mr. Davy,"1
with Sydney Drew in the title
role, provides the comedy. A
special Pathe educational film will
be shown also.

WITH the closing of navigation last month, the day of the river steamer in Central
British Columbia has practically passed. For years river transportation afforded
the best and cheapest means of transporting passengers and freight from one point
to another throughout the whole of Central British Columbia. The Fraser River was
the main artery of travel, and the tonnage handled by the large fleet of riier steamers
which have plied these waters for the last six years, has been exceptionally large.
The fast trains of a new transcontinental have taken the place of these steamers,
and with the passing of the latter, one of the pleasantest features of pioneer life
becomes a memory.
