There wns an interesting discussion ot the meeting of tho Council
on Monduy evening on the question
of tho observance of tho Sabbath,
or to lie more correct, the Lord's
Day. Tho discussion was started
while the council in committee was
dealing with Aid. Haworth's by-law
for tho regulation of places of amuse
mont. According to the now bylaw,
all places of amusement, billiard rooms and bowling alleys, aro
to be closed on Sundays.
Aid. McKinnoll objected to the
inclusion of billiard rooms in tho
list. A billiard room was as good a
placo nsafootlmll field, and it would
be more to the credit of the town
to stop Sunday football than tho
playing of billi-nrds. There was no
library in the town nnd thore was
no harm in going to a billiard room.
Aid. Campbell did not think it was
right thnt billiard rooms should be
opon in the centro of thetown on
Sundays. Tf thoy were going to respect the Sundny they should respect
it in the right wny. Sundny billinrds
looked too conrse. Plnyers had till
12 o'clock on Snturdny night, and
ihnd ovory night of the week. They
should respect Sunday ir it wns
worth respecting nt nil.
Mnyor Nicholson said he did ot
know, but he would like to see the
section stand as it was. If they
mudo tho exception favored by Aid.
McKinnell, thoy would he encouraging Sunday footbnli. If they adopted the clause as. it stood they might
perhnps Inter be told to do nwny
with footbnli nlso. So fnr as ho
could see, it would be n benofit to
nil concerned to close up these billiard rooms. Ho wns surprised nt
Aid. McKinnell. They had the welfare of ithe hoys of the town to consider.
Aid. MoKinnel said he spoke just
ns ho felt on those things. He wns
surprised nt the Mnyor. Thore were:
saloons stnnding open nil dny on
Sundays and His Worship wns to,
tblnme for it. Tf thoy closod up tho
jbilHnrd rooms. whero were their
i boys going? Billiards wns a harmless njmiscment. nnd ho did not see
|nny hnrm in nny one being in abil-
liard room oven on n Sundny,     Tie
was a churchman nnd believed in
the Sabbath being observed as much
us nny of them.
Aid. Matheson said thero wus certainly a danger in closing theso
places up tight. If tliey drove out
tho young fellows from the billiard
room where were they going? That
was his only (vn.- In passing the
clause as it stood—tho danger of
driving peoplo to wo ml  places.
Aid. Campbell wnnted to know
where they would drive the boys?
The churches wero open, lot themi go
to church. Close up the hotels nlso,
nnd then ihey c'ouldn'1 got into
thom. Ho wns surprised al the way
in which the hotels \\t:m nia. Thoro
were more drunks nn Sundny than
nny other dny nnd where wns the
linuor got? Why in the back rooms
of tho hotels.
Aid. Hrown mi irked that if the
billiard room nun bowling alley were
allowed to renin In open on Sunday,
the council wns ronlly granting a
licence permitting play on Sundays,
and was helping to break tho Sabbath.
•Aid. Haworth siild (hat without a
doubt there wns n lot of gambling
going on in tho Millar ' rooms, and
where wns thoro u wo
gambling?
Aid. McKinnoll: "Th
wo paying a pol idem i
gambling is going o
doors? What ore our oolico commissioners doing in not seeing that the
policeman does l.oi do his duty?
Whnt nro our license commissioners
doing in not seeing thnt the hotels
aro run according to the laws of
tho city? So fnr as the billiard
rooms are concerned, thero should
bo something to put in their place
boforo thoy ore closed. For myself,
T have a boy, ond T would far sooner see him in n billinrd room thnn
in n. saloon or in other places in
town.
This ended tho discussion so fnr ns
the queslion of Sundny observnnce
is concerned, nnd as stated in tho
report of tho council mooting, tho
Aldermen, Mr. McKinnoll alone accepted, took upon themselves to net
the roles of n father nnd nn earthly
providence towards all the boys in
town.

THE WORKER WINS.
The announceu -it oi thu date   of
the Dominion elections    has created
no very greul stir locally,    lt    hail
been generull/ taken fur granted that
the tight would begin about the lust
week in October, so that there   was
no element of surprise in the official
declaration of the date.       Wo   have
had no campaign oratory since the
announcement.     .None of tho   candidates has taken to the hustings; but
.we beliove that, quietly, a good deal
of work Is     being    pushed through.
The SocioHsts uro always an active
.'political  party, and their machinery
is always     in good working   order.
Thc uie for  Hawthornthwaite   will
be    polled     practically     at its full
strength.     Smith also hns not wasted a moment since his return   from
Ottawa.    His first point was to announce   himself ns the Liberal   candidate,    so that later he might   go
through the formality of a nomination.    The procedure was rathor unusual; but, so tar as the business of
ship the Mayor aaked for the official,
'street level*. His request has been
'granted. That is all that hoe been
'done, and the old difficulty bus nav-
'er been touched. As the thing now
stands, Messrs. Johnson's and Fraser's buildings havo been put up
since the city was incorporated, and
it is probable that, if the city at
nny time puts the sidowalk down to
proper grade, these gentlemen would
be responsible for whatever alterations were necessary to their buildings. For the remainder of the
houses and business premises, the
city would be liable. Now it is
very unlikely that the sidewalk wll.
over be put down lower than it is.
If the city does grow Co such an
extentas to make the lowering of
the sidewalk a necessity the funds
would bo there to do it with. The*
point at present Is that there is no
immediate need to meddle any further with the sidewalk, and that, if
there wore, the city is not in a position to do it, nor will it be for
years to come. Moro even than
that, the property owners seem to
be sat slled with it as lt is; and yet
for some reason or othor only Aid.
Matheson hail courage enough to
declare himself in favor of adopting
the present sidewalk as the official
elty level for that side of the streot
Aid. Campbell, who has no more
interest in the question than Aid.
Matheson, declared such a courss
would nover do. Ho could see that
the sidowalk was good enough aa it
is for tho present, but would
hear tell of it being established
the official grade. The result
that builders . that side of
avenu' are either placed on the two
horns oi ,__ling dilemma.
Either the,) nst jake a very costly excavation, or else they put up
their building and run the risk of
having to lower it at any time that
the city decides to put tha sidewalk
down to tho street level. It is po0r
encouri gement    to buitdfntr and

Some Political History.
The proposal to complete the confederation of British North America
by the Inclusion of British Columbia
on\ the only terms by which that
could be obtained, giving; that province railway communication with
tho rest of Canada, was fiercely denounced by the Liberal party as ruinous. Tho result of,this opposition
wal a large reduction ot tho Conservative majority in the election of
1872 and the party thus weakened,
was defeated in 1878 by the notion
of six of its supporters, wh> thus
obtained seats In the Liberal Cabinet.
The Liberal Government then formed, dissolved the House and obtained a large'majority.    They pursued
a Free Trade policy, which  brought
the country   to a deplorable   condition.    The Opposition propounded a
protective  policy   and   carried  the1
country ln 1878 by an overwhelming
majority.    That    policy was established ln the face ot the most determined  opposition.      The* Increasing
prosperity enabled    the Government
to vigorously prosecute the construction   ofthe  railway to the  Pacific
ocean.    In April, 1880..  Mr. Blake,
the leader dt the Liberal Party, moved a resolution ln the House of Commons to compel the Government'  to
suspend all construction beyond   the
eastern side of the Rocky Mountains
and Implored the' Hotiss not to  ruin
Canada for the sake of 12.000 wh'to
people in Brltlah Columbia.   He was
supported on that motion by the entire Liberal Party, including   yourself.    In October of that year   the
Government entered Into a contract |
with the Pacific   Railway syndicate,
for the   completion of the   railway,
and it wae opened for traffic    from
ocean to ocean in 1886.    Tbat  contract was strenuously opposed by the
Liberal party, although no man can
deny that It has resulted tn  untold
benefit tb Canada.   The company   Is
now     operating    more than 13,000
miles of railway, and has provided a
fleet of steamers affording the most
rapid Communication between Canada
and Great Britain.       Who, then   I
ask, will dare to aay that without
tliese great measures which you and
your party have so bitterly opposed,
Canada  could    have   attained   the
great position it now occupies?
