THE COUNCIL
Mr. P. BurUe Asks Fur un Am.ly_i~.
IIP. Fugnn  is tu Investiguio

The _went,,-„igl.Hi nicotine pt tho
City Council was hoi- in tho City
Hid I oil Monthly ovon ing. 'Mayor Nicholson prosidoii, mul thoro wore jiro-
sent Aid. Campbell, lluwurth, McKinnell, Drown uud Mnihcson.
A report of the liiirninjj; of the I'ro-
viuci.il gaol, together wjth,.u Ifnio
liill for tho flremuu, wns laid ovcr
for ono wook, the Council being of
tho opinion thut tho city was not
UtiMp for tho expenses incurrotl.
A oonimiinication wus rend from
Fire Chiof Smith. u.sking that tho
Council should semi him down to the
Convention of Pirn Chiefs to ho held
in Victoria. Mr* Smith pointed out
tho importance of u fire chief attending theso conventions,, as new methods of fighting fires were discussed
and demonstrations of now* equipment nnd apparatus, were given.
Fire Chief Smith asked only- for a,
grunt of §25 towards his expenses
Aid. Haworth asked if Flro Chiel*
Smith did seo anything now in the
fire-fighting appliances, <wus the oity
in n position to get it ?
Mayor Nicholson : No.
Aid. Haworth: Then it would he a
waste of money.
Aid. Matheson remnrkod i that so
fur from learning anything from tho
way in which fires were fought in
Victoria, ho wns of tho opinion that
Victoria could take lessons from1 1>-
(lysinlth. He hud soon fires in both
places ond the methods hore wero
hotter I '.".'turiu.
Tho matter was laid over for a
week for tho Fire Wardens to roport
on. after talking it ovor with Flro
Chief Smith.
An application for the position of
engineer in connection with the electric lighting or tho city wus ordered
filed for future reference.
A copy of the constitution of tho
Union of Munio.polities of II. C. ns
nmendeti at tho recent .convention
held in Nnnnimo, wus received and
read hy City Clork Stewart. A letter
nccompnniofi it, and tho city was requested to forward its annual subscription if it hud not done so.
The communication wus ordered filed, and the City Cleric instructed to
forward tlie amount of tho subscription.
Accounts to .the amount, of SIS).85
wero roforred to tlio Finance Commltteo to he paid if found correct.
Mayor Nicholson snid that as decided ut the lust meeting of tho
Council, he hnd gono to Victoria for
the purposo of interesting capitalist
in the snle of the City Debentures.
The gentleman had asked him for
two days to iool^into the Inyjjno^s,
und expressed the opinion thnt he
would he able to get some clionts to
tako them up. He (Mayor Nlchol-
son) left the business ut that but
hud never hoard from Victoria since.
The wholo business after a short
Informal discussion wns left in the
hands of Muyor Nicholson, on the
understanding that he would call u
meoting nt his own discretion.
Plans and specifications for the
now premises being erected by tho
Lndysmith Bakery fo.. wt.ro ordered
received for tho use of thc Flro
Wardens, t i
A protest from Mr. Feovor In re-1
gard to tho license he is pitying for,
tho howling alley was laid over for
n week so that tho matter may bo
looked into.
Mayor Nicholson brought up the
question of sidewalks. He said that
somo of tho roads around the Colliery offices needed fixing up. Thoy
could uro . up the old lumber tbuy
had taken up from tho old sidewalks
Thoy could fix a sidowalk either
down Kltchonor or Buller Streot.
From Mr. Kussell's residence down
past tho pay ofllco, Thoro wns a sum!
pit and tho roud was not only bud
but, dangerous.
Aid. McKinnell moved and Aid. Matheson socondod thnt u sidewalk he
laid down Kitchener Street nnd thut
that portion of the Hsplnnade round
the colliory ofllco be fixed. Tho motion carried.
Mr. P. Burko whs given pel-mission
to no\lrass the Council. He snld
that ho hnd been given lo under.
stand thnt they must all closo their
wolls. He would liko to comply with
tho order thnt had heen issued, and
ho wns willing onough to take tho
city water . But ho wanted to sny
for himself nnd some of his neighbors on the hill that they hnd somo
of tho finost -wells to be found in tho
country and it would he n shame to
closo thom down. The wnter In his
woll wns used by fiftyor sixly peoplo for drinking nnd hero thoir doctor had como in nnd ordered the
wells to ho closod. And these people
who came to his well for wnler ell,
or very nearly nil, had tho city water In their houses, but only used it
for cooking nnd washing and watering the gardens*.
,Ho hnd trout swimming round In
his well for two yenrs now, und If
tho wnter hnd not been free from all
linpuritlps thoso fish would novor
havo dono ns woll ns they had dono.
Yot tho ordor to close down hurt
boon Issued without respect to any
difference thoro might bo In tho wells.
Thero were wolls down tho hill tho
Wfltor fn which he would never drink
hut that did not mako tt right, thnt
his well nlsft should.bo closod. j Ho
would Hko to know what kind of
wator the city wns being supplied
with. Tt enmo from a 'rog pond nnd
It was worse.thon uny pond ho had.
ovor seen. He could assure tho Cont)
ell thnt If thoy only saw, tht? reservoir nnd the stnto it wna In they
would certnit''- nover drink tho'water.-
However, his main object In addressing tho Council was to nscor-
tnln whether hn could got an analysis taken of tho water in the vqlls
on tho hl|l. Thpn according to tho
results of tho    test, the   had wells
could bo shut down and the good,
ones left open. Ho was not blaming
thc Council. They wmv. only carrying out their instructions, hut here
they had a yuunj« "octor, just graduated, ordering ai wells to bo closed, without any investigation at
nil, or uny t*,naly_'- being made of
the water. .   ,
Muyor Nicholson remarked thut
the Council hud uo desire to be
hard upon any of tho citizens. How-
ovex; Ur, Fagan was coming up during the week, unci he would take the
mnttor up. Iio did not hco himself
thnt ajiy citizen could be compelled
to closo u well the Wator of which
had been proved by ipinlysis to he
pure.
Aid. Matheson coiicuireil in this
opinion.' However- iho Council wus
not prepared to tako any of tho responsibility that properly should i *.>
shouldered by the Mudicut fraternity,
Tho doctors were supposed to know
ull about thoso Ibtyw. Dr. Fagan'
wus, ho undorKtu tr Mug to loo-?
into the whole question, nnd exam-
hio the condition of the reservoir as
woll ns tlio stuto of tlie wells. Thoy
would of course ho bound to act in
accordance with his fbjdings, but ho
; folt* confident thnt no mini would bo
'ordered to close a well-the water
which had been tested and found to
be good.
Mr. Burke expressed himself as satisfied nnd wound up his remarks
with the prediction that the water
in tho reservoir would he found to
he rotten fnun the word po.
The Council then adjourned.

AN INTERRUPTED
WALK
Throe'Young   Townsmen Havc Narrow Escape From'Falling Trees
Three young townsmen got a -rare
fright anil, indeed, narrowly escaped
death or serious injury while out
walking on Sunday evening. The
gentlemen were Messrs. Brooksbanks,
Burton and Walkom and they wore-
making towards- home about six
o'clock in the afternoon.|
Thev were coming through tho railway cut 'which comes* but at the
bunkers. The sides, of tho cut have
rather a iiiinutory appearance at any
time, und anyone not acquainted
with tho nature of tlie ground would
naturally wonder that the sides • do
not slide in, Tlio three pedestrians
were just remarking upon the peculiarity of the cutting, und speculat
ing what would happen to (hem if
there wore n slide "It would be
cheap buriah" said one, and at that
very moment some gravel slid uwuy
from tho side of the cut. This was
followed by the sound of n sudden
snap und the swish of some heavy
object hurtling through the air.
\ startled glance upwards, showed
them a tree falling over the cut right
over their' heads. For u moment
they didn't know whut to do, - but
Instinctively the'* mudo n bolt for it.
And it was well for them thnt they
did.
Tlio tree wlW^t^rruslu'd^to the

snapped nnd the inTtf-^rit fell Into
the cut. Even with the rush the
walkers had made, they were grazed
by some of the branches, and Mr.
Walkom'fl glasses were found right
under the main body of the fallen
tree. Mr. W... r ■>-so .dropped his
coat nnd there wus wind enough
from the. concussion to scatter the
contents of the pockets ull over tho
track.
It was u dust-hegrinod und rather
dishevelled group of pedestrians thnt

tho cut for homo, "but thoy were ull
thankful to huve got out of the incident with wholo skins.
Tt seems thut tho tree had been
burning, nnd It would be well fn
enses like this, whore there is always
a danger of a tree tojipling over on
to a road usod by tho public oithor
to hnvo it watched or felled.

Magistrates Jlniheson unci Nicholson had. four charges before tlu?pi ou
Monduy evening, ull oi which they
managed to dispose ol iu the singlo

The lirst cuse wits one of assault,
which wus preferred against M. l.'hur-
lior, by a Belgian, who recently ur-
rived iu thc town. From the evidence it appeared thut Mr. and Mrs.
Churlier wcre coining along Fourth
Avonue on .Suluriluy evening. Tho
plaintill, who, according to one witness, w-us neither drunk nor sohur,
wus talking to u compatriot, .lust

thoy were talking, the conipluinuut
gave utterance to some vory dirty
language, Mr. Cluu-lier ut once told
him he should have more sense than
to use such language when there
were women around, whereupon complainant begun-to ubuse him. The
result wus thut Churlier stopped his
swearing hy smashing him in the
face.
The magistrates yoi-j wisely dismissed the cuse.
Tlio complainant now- found himself defendant on a charge laid against him by Cojistable (.'ullunder of
creating a dijJtuibuiu-n and using hud

Football Club was held in the Standard olllce yesterday evening. Messrs. Jas. Adam and E. R. Hind-
marob -vere appointed the club's delegates t„ attend tho meeting nt Victoria on Saturday to take up the
subject of the formation of n Pacific Coast Football league. The committee aro nil unequivocally in la-
vor of the scheme, and have little
fault to find with the constitution

forward at the psychological hour,
nnd should still further popularize
the game and secure for the clubs

Next Wednesday evening there will

with his wife to hetir such language.
The Belgian wus understood to express n very poor'opinion of Lndysmith nnd Its Justice, but ho paid
his fine and rim leave as soon'as he
wishes. '
A colored lail.y wns (bo sole figure
fn tho next case. She was charged
with creating a disturbance on the
street on . Stmdu.v' evening nnd at
onco admitted tho hard impeachment
Shc hnd It seems, been moro thun
usually violent and Constable Callander -was compelled to tako charge
of her. However, she evinced no liking for his company and refused to
take a walk with him. Whereupon
the gallant .Mm wus driven to take
her upon his buck, for which . kindness ho , olso received more abuse
thun thntiks. When opposite the
Presbyterian Church the ludy's apparel, began to shed it parts and
there was a hall tor repairs during
which the voluble one heaped gross
abuse upon thu head of the bashful
policemen to the horror of the peoplo coming out of the church.
The Indy wus fined ten dollars and
costs and told to get out of tho
town.
The fourth cuse wns n cutting uf-
fray which took place in Uie kitchen
of the Abbotsford Hotel on -Sunday
morning. From tho evidenco It
seemed thnt Mr. McMurtrie had instructed Joe, the general utility man
to tell the dishwasher that ho wns
not doing his work properly. Joe
told his countrymen this while eating his breakfast on Sunduy morning nnd also indulged in somo joking und chaff. The result wus thut
the dishwusher got mad und shied a
tnble knife nt Joe. The latter jumped up to chastise the dishwasher for
this, and did slop hlm, hut got n
cruck on the bead from a potato-
squeczur in return. Then tbey fell
to scufding, and while thus engaged
tho dishwasher caught up a carving
knife and slashed Joe three times
ovcr lho ai—s. What olse be would
hnve done there is no telling, but
loe-ninnnged to pin the arm thnt
held tbe knife until tbey w-ero sep-
nrttled.
Mr. Stewart who appeared for lho
dishwasher, endeavored to show thnt
the provocation hud come from .l«e,
and that 11io littler bud in fact,
started the quarrel, lie ulso objected to tho form of the Information,
and pointed out thai none of lhe
witnesses bad seen the actual cutting.
The Chinaman was    iln.-d    $L'0 i-O
costs,    which    wus paid into
—-r alt the club's Bupporters. It is
hoped that this year a strong working committee will be available,
There is no doubt that tho events of
the season will call for it, and no
one with interest In the game or
pride in the club will refuse his services.

certainly not us good a* Mr. Lee
Willitrd and hia company deserve to
have. "My Partner" is not a very
strong play. Tlie motif is very weak
and the linal denouement falls tamo
and flat. Still there are some very
strong scenes with sevoral golden opportunities for the display of the
mnmmor'e art which Mr. Willard
turns to very good ndvnntoge. .The
play ulso is clean and wholesome,
nnd the vein of comedy so aptly exploited by Mr. Dave Williams, as
"Major Britt," and Miss Leslie Marion as "Posle Peutland," keeps the
andienco in good humor. Th* show
wns very enjoyable and If ever Mr.

THE WATER QUESTION.
Th* question of the closing of the
wells within the city limits was a-
gain before the Council on Monday-
even—g. The matter was raised by
Mr. Burke, and in ihe remarks he
mad* before the 'council, a report ol
which will be found on tha Iront
page, ha* voiced the sehtiments of
quite a number of citizens. Incidentally also he extended the scope and
ana of the question, and the Council found itself confronted with tho
larger subject of th* quality of the
water supplied to the city.
With Mr. Burke's main contention
there is nothing to be objected. He
claim* to have a well in which the
water I* absolutely pur*. He is
.willing to have It tested by analysis
sad I* ready to abid* by the result
ol th* teat. There are othera ia ex7
actly the lame position, and he aaked th* Council to have thi* done ber
lore proceeding to enforce the instructions, they hav* issued. This
i* only t what. Mayor Nicholson wonted done all along, und it certainly ia
one sale and easy way in whloh trou-
bh> may be avoid*d.
However, Mr, Burke went a atop
further. . He wa* willing to have the
water in hi* well tested, and he
thought the water supplied to the
city should also be analyzed. II*
mad* certain statements about the
condition of the reaervoir which,
although Ihey were not new, certainly ought to be investigated. Th*
health of the town at this time of
the year, especially a town with
the sanitary conditions ol Ladyamlth, depend* to a vary gnat extent on the purity of the water and
ol the milk with which it is supplied.,
Whether either, one or tho other hos

Mr. H. McDonald    Drawl Attention

Th* following letter irom,Mr. H.
McDonald of Nanaimo, and tht remark* of the paper attached appear
„ in yesterday's Colonist, and an sail-
explanatory, drawing attention to
a condition of affair* mentioned in
these columns on previous occasions:
Editor Colonist:
Allow ma, through tha medium of
your paper, to draw the attention
ol aporta—en and our provincial authorities to th* drain on our game
preasrvM by American turist* during the summer month*. In an edition of th* "Motor Boat," published in Now York, I flnd a description of a trip in a gssoline launch
through British Columbia waters by
on* H. K. Todd. The party consisted of Mr. aad Mr*. W. B. ail** and
H. K. Todd and hi* spouie. These
leople openly boast of th* hunting
tbey enjoyed during the month
July, and even described tbe killing
of deer without apparent fear or remorse. That thla sort of thing goes
<>n to a iu*_Mst»_- extent, resident* of Nanaimo or* well aware, as
thla la a favorite plac* for theso
tourist* to obtain their luppliei, and
other fishermen and woodsman besides myself constantly meat these
unscrup—oua destroyers of game, in
tl.* outlying district*, armed with
gun or rifle In pursuit of feathered
or other gam*. Cannot the Island
•portsmen and game club* bring
pressure to bear upon th* govern
ment to equip and operate a last
boat from a central point, auch as
thla, to run down a few of theso
marauder* and bring them to
count? With our rapidly lne-eaalng
population It will be difficult enough to preserve our game without
allowing auch unwarrantable destruc

Ihey "had th* fun ol getting some

mat another party of poachers from

where to get deer If they wanted
anon meat. Their next atop wa*
at Nelson -land, wh*r* they lecount

SAN FRAN0IS0O, July 16.— Refusal of railway magnates to agree
to run excursions to Ely on Labor
Cay, it is believed today probably
will result ln cancelling the Oans-
Nolson fight. If that contest la de
dared off Packy' McFarland hopes to
arrange a battle with Nelson to be
fought hore September' ?.
Another reason that the Guns-Nelson fight may riot be pulled off at
Ely Is that' a rival bout ia being
planned for Goldfteld on the
date.

CHICAGO, July 16.-A battle royal between a billion dollar combine
of manufacturers and shippers, against the railroads, of. the United

The big shippers from all parts of
the nation are said to have leagued
together to fight the advance and a
meeting has been called in Chicago,
July 24, to open the battle. The
struggle will be carried into th
courts if necessary, and if not ended
before next winter, may be continued in the legislatures of a score of
