Back Alleys Will Have
To Be Cleared Up
There was a full attendance at the
council meeting Monday night, Mayor Nicholson in the chair.
-Tho minutes of the last meeting
were read and appioved.
A communication was read from
Wm,. Brent to the. effect that thc
draft of the amendment to the sewer
by-law was not altogether satisfactory, and offering to prepare, another
by-law at his own ext^nsc, if the
the council would submit it to the
The reply of Mayor Nicholson to
Mr. Brent giving authority for tho
preparation of the new by-law was
also refid.
His Worship explained that he had
consulted 'With several aldermen, who
agreed to the suggestion, of Mr.
Brent, and that in order to save
time he had wired renly.
Aid. Campbell asked if it were the
original by-law or the sewer rental
by-law to which objection had been
taken, and His Worship replied* that
it; was the latter.
Under the circumstances. Aid Ma-1
theson said tho mayor'si,action should
be endorsed and he moved a resolution to that effect, which/was duly
seconded and adopted. " J
O'Hara & Co., of Winnipeg,, wrote
that they were willing to pay the
highest prices for debentures. I
fh- communication was received
and filed,    ■ |
Accounts aggregating S348 were
presented, and referred to the finance
committee*, to be paid if found correct.
Aid. Roberts, on bclinll of the committee appointed to interview! tho
proncrty-owncrs on Koberts street
with regard , to a cement sidewalk
fmm First avenue to the new post-
office, reported that he had seen Mr. I
Williams, who said he was willing to
pay his share. Mr. McLean stated
tlmt his property was on the, market, l
and he did not feel disposed to go to
any more expense. Another property
owner would be communicated with
through the agent.
Mayor NichoUon said the Oddlel-I
lows had. not met since he had been
authorized to interview them with
regard to the walk, but he would do
so at their first meeting.
The matter was laid over for an-'
other week. 1
Thc city clerk stated that he had
measured thc sidewalk cn First avenue side on the Stevens block and
found seventy feet.
The mayor had also made measurements and found 80 feet from one end
of thc incline to the other end. i
11 was decided that tho city should
pay its proportion of thc cost amounting to m; I
Dr. Pagan's communication with regard to an annual subscription to
the Anti-Tuberculosis Society again
came up for consideration, and the
clerk was instructed to instruct Dr.
Fagan that on account of tho unusual expenses of the year, it would te
impossible to (lo anything at present.
■ Mayor Nicholson reported that he
had met Mr. Evans, Mr. McDonald
and Mr. Mohun while he was at the
coast. He had gone over the plans,'
and ho had- no doubt somo changes
could be made. Ho had discussed thc
plans with Mr. McDonald, who he-,
licved that it would bo better to
raise the sewers at thc starting
point;1 then instead of putting the,
pipo down five feet it might he put,
down four feet, thereby saving, a
great expense in lhc excavations.
Aid. Matheson asked if this change
from five feet to four feet would not
affect the street levels at certain
points, and the mayor said no, only
in one unimportant instance. I
Aid. Dier seemed to think that the
cost ol the sewers could net be cut
down much, and rather favored ask-!
ing for 810,000 more when the by-1
law would be submitted again to the
ratepayers. |
After considerable discussion on
this point it was decided to wait un-l
til M.r, McDonald again went over
tha plans. I
Aid. Mathcscin's sewer rental by-1
law was laid over for another week.-1
' Aid. • Haworth wanted to know it,
anything was going to be, done with
regard to Mrs. Hutchison's bill tori
nursing, and It was pointed out that
the matter was now bcloro the
courts, and discussion was deemed In.
advisable. However, lit was agreed
that if tho ease were discontinued,
then the council would be prepared to
deal with Mrs.' Hutchison.
'Mayor 'Nicholson stated that ho intended to begin excavation tor his
new, block at once, and informed the
council that there would be a large
quantity of good material for road-
making takes out, and he told tho
council that he would be willing to
dump it on any street where it would
le needed, providing thc council engaged a man to level It oil.
' It was' decided to employ a man
tor this work,.
Aid. Koberts complained ol the
drains running down Koberts street
neat his butcher shop. There were
also other Mitoanccs-ot the same kind
that needed looking after.
Mayor Nicholson, in this connection, referred to the practice of
throwing tin cans and ashes In. thc
alleyways by. some af thc citizens.
Moreover, some of lhe streets thc
council had cleared oft by request had
teen made a dumping place for rocks
Irom some ot the lots.
Aid. Dier said the alleyways 0t Ladysmith were a disgrace to the city.
Various places where these nuisan
ces exist were referred to, and thc inspector will ask the olienders to
clean up these places, or the city will
do so, and charge it up to those
who should have done so.
>E. Lowe wrote the council to grand
the use of the city hall for meetings
of the hospital committee.
This was-granted, and the council
