THE OLD COUNCIL HOLDS ITS LAST MEETING
The council of 1008 held its last
meeting Monday night and wcund, up
its business for the year.
There were present Mayor Nicholson, and Aid. 'Matheson, Brown,
.Campbell, Roberts and Haworth.
The minutes of the last meeting
were adopted as read.
Communication from R. 0. Jcssoy
objecting to the British Columbia
Telephone Co., placing a. braced Role
nearly in Iront ol his store.
As this was the last meeting of ttuj
council, His Worship recommended
that the matter be left over so that
the next council cciild deal with it,
and a motion was adopted to that
sUcct. ,
Several communications dealing
wilh the debentures were read, but
nothing was dene with regard to
.them.
f A communication was read from
Mr. John Stewart, tendering his resignation aa city elcrii. The following is acopy of Mr. Stewart's letter:
. LadysmUi, B. C, 11th Jan., 1909.
To His Worship the Mayor and Alder-'
men ol tho City of Ladysmith, in
Council Assembled:
Dear Sirs:—I beg to tender my res-
ifcnaticn as Clerli and Assessor of
"Vour Municipality.
I thank you personally, your Worship aft! Aldermen as well as past
Cornells for the many kindnesses you
have shown me and Ior the best of
feeling whiih you have at all times
been anxious should exist between
your hoard cni myself.     '
I feel, however, that the council
would be better served if they would
apr.oint a man who could give thc
work his entire attention for few
know how much time this work, tafc-j
up.
1 have to congratulate you on the
success of your year's work and the
good and useful measures which you
have successfully passed and wish
\ou much success in your future deliberations.
Yours very truly,
J. STEWART, City Clerk.
The mayor drew attention to the
amount of work in connection with
Mr. Stewart's position, and thc
i.nmll compensation therefore, yet he
had no doubt that those who did not
ki.ow of the work of the office bc-
lic.e.l the city clerk well paid.
Besides performing a large amount ot
work at small remuneration, Mr.
Stewart saved the city the expense
of an office and furnishings, fuel,
light, etc. He tor one believed Mr.
Stewart was not sufficiently paid lor
his work,
Aid.' Brown would like to see Mr.
.Stewart reconsider his resignation.
Aid. Roberts thought that if it
were only a matter ol money the
trouble could be readjusted. The
city clerk should be paid more.
Aid. Mat'.-.cson would like' to see
Mr. Stewart) reconsider his determination to resign. Undoubtedly. the
work ol the coming year would take
up considerable time nnd perhaps
some arrangement could be made with
the incoming council.
Aid. Haworth would lite to see thd
resignation laid over, and it was
Moved by Aid. Matheson and seconded by Aid. Haworth that the its.
signatioh be laid over for   week.
Accounts aggregating {00.1,1 were
referred to the finance committee, t0
).e paid if found • correct.
Mr. Ocorgc Wilson appeared before
the council with regard to a backdated bill of the Ladysmith Lumber
Co. Mr. Wilson gave what teemed to
he a reasonable explanation, and no
doubt thc bill will be paid in due
eoutse.
J. E. Smith repoi'tcd thc fire loss
lor the year as being S'.Hio, and also
gave a list ot thc material on band
and recommended certain additions
inthe way ol material, for the depart/
ment.
The report was received and filed,
Aid. McKinnell, for the cemetery
committee recommended the clearing
up of weeds at the cemetery and the
making ot a good road around the
out.-ide.
Report was received and filed.
Aid. Mathieson, tbr the finance com*
mittee,. stated that the financial report would ba found in the report ot
tho clerk to the city.
Received and filed.
Thc city cterk then presented the
financial statement for , the year,
which is produced in Another column^
It was moved, seconded, and carried that the report be received and
printed in the local paper.
Thc resignation of the fire chief
was laid over tor the next   council.
This being the last eeting of the
council, the minutes ot the meeting
were read, approved, and duly signed by the mayor.
The council for 1908 ttaeuadjourned.
Football Boys
Should Practice
The management of the football
club are under a great expense in
providing quarte.s tor the beys to
train, and unless tbe players themselves take a great interest in their
training it can hardly: be expected th*
public is going to follow up the
game. The first tw nights in the
opera hajise uic team was out in lull
force, but'they seem to shirk now.
To be" In' ^he best of shape practice
is the only thing and unelc.r the unfavorable conditions it is impossible
to get on thc field or road sa the
management deem It necessary to
procure a covered building so the
players can elo indoor work. Tne
players will kindly remember to-morrow (Thursday) is tbe regular training night at the same place—the op-
era house.
If the weather gets any milder the
chances cl seeing the crack Vancouver team playing the scheduled match
on the 17th are good. A contract is
about let for cleaningthe grounds ol
snow but if thc cold weather contin-
ues.lhe game must be postponed.
Trainer Matheson, who has been
suffering trom an attack- ot tonsllllls
isgetting nicely over It and will tp on
deck aga'n to look   alter tbe boys.
These schedules are correct so kind'
ly cut them out tor future reference.

CORPESPONDENCE
SEPTIC  TANKS.
Another Dreadful
(Editor Chronicle.)   .
Dear Sir'—I noted yaur reference U
the above subject, also, the article
from which yoM,quoted, re a London
commission's! report in the Vancouver
Province, and it appears to mc that
they tound the tanks were not doing
their duty because there was only
partial digestion ol the organic matter passing through them. But we
did not find auy report if the committee had tound what proportion of
inorganic matter was passing
through the tan'.ts in the form oi
soap, oils, acids, lime, refuse from
gas, dye, chemicals, and sundry other'
kinds of work's, all of which aro antagonistic to a good and clean digestion and which were not expected
in the tanks. Therefore what the
commission really found ws thai
the tanks were' really sufferinj; from
chronic indigestion, and they either
do rot know, or haw overlooked ^ha
face, so that they are all subject to
the tanks are to digest the deposits
Irom closets. The other foreign elements, as soap, etc., turns the tank
into a cesspool and virtually prevents the object intended.
As for a tank for tte sewerage ot
Ladysmith it would' worse than useless, for our streets ate only partial*
ly graded and none have a hard sur-
luce, sa that they are all subject to
erosion or scouring in times of a
freshlet, so that tho tank would get
choked with sand the first heavy
rainy weather and be useless
Hoping you will give this space, I
wiil leave tho subject for thc publj£
to think over-. ZULU "
Mine Disaster
Bluefield, W. Va., Jan. 12.-In the
quiet of the early morning there
came a mighty rumbling in the bowels of the earth, which reverberated
alongthe miles of corridors and air
passages crowded with men who)
worked there. From the mine mouth
shot forth a cloud cf smoke, soot
and flames and debris of heavy tim-
massive motor used to haul the mine
cars.
Scarcely had the detonations died
away before a throng of terrorized
women and children in anxiety and
dread rushed to tbe mine mouth and
implored those there to allow them
to aid in the efforts to save some of
the:r lovedoncs.
A train was rushed from this city
to the scene of the disaster some 25
ifailes away carrying batticing and
other materials to be used in the
work of exploration and rescue.
rthere were supposed to'be Iron sixty
lib eignty men in the section ol the
mine affected. The debris from the
explosion ot two weeks ago lad not
been cleared away, and 20 men were
Urs, broken mine cars, and even a
engaged in this work. Nineteen contract miners with their crewa, were
at work in the new entry, and it is
(eared that all of them are   lost.   .
A late estimate ol the number ol
men entombed is morethan 100. Thc
fire in the mine and the deadly gas,
to sty nothing ot the awful force oi
the explosion, preclude any chance of
rescuing any of thc men > alive, i.'.ip
main entry of the mine is four miles
long, running from one side ot the
mountain to th? other.
OSTEOPATHY.
(To the Editor.)
Dear Sir:-"Thc world do move!"
and new Ideas—though we arc sometimes slow to accept them—arc daily
forcing) themselves upon, our attention. But a, few years ago and the
man wodld dare proclaim his ability
to cute disease. simply by manipulating the body, with his hitnds-auso-
lutely without drugs or knife—would
have been laughed to scorn. Ter.dayj
thftiigh thc science now J.uuwn as
Osteopathy, it is not only an accomplished tact, but, in some parts ot
the country the practitioners have
met with such wonderful success that
their patients tar outnumber those of
the practitioners who adhere to thc
old school and continue to administer
drags. It is worthy of note that a
larger percentage of cases have been
cured by Osteopathy than by any
other method of treatment, and man;*,
of these cases that had been given
up as hopeless by the disciples of
Aesculapius.       ONE WHO KNOWS.
J. 0. Good fellow pasted through on the
noon train.
The Star Orchestra will give a dance in
the opera house on Tuesdsy evening Jan
uary 19th. Gentlemen twenty-fire cents
and ladies free.
Mayor Nicholson has been appointed a
dtltfltU from the Ladysmith Board of Traile
to the meeting of the Island boards of
trade, to be held at Victoria on tlio 22nd
lust.
W. E. Moore has leased thc store
and banquet rooms ol thc opera
.house from Mr. Geo. Haworth and
will open up a restaurant and barber shop about the 9th ot February
J, West, of South Oyster, appeared before Magistrate! Nicholson and Stewart
last evening charged with assaulting Mr.
W. Southln of the tame place. The dispute
was over soma logs. After hearing all the
evidence, tbe magistrates decided to fine
Weat C.« dollar*, but refuted to bind him
over to keep the peace. Mr, V. B. Harrison appeared for th* complainant.
The San Francisco Opera Comparoy
drew a good house at Nanaimo last
night, when "The Strollers" was
produced,
Thc Dominion steamer Quadra was
in this morning, and left about noon
(or thc north to place some buoys
lhat had drifted away.
The election in Nanaimo yesterday
was apparently a tame affair. Haw-
thornthwnite polled 666 votes and
Barker 405, giving thc Socialist candidate n majority ol 281.
At 3:14 p. in. last Monday tbere
were several slight shocks of earthquake. Several buildings shook a
little, but there was no damage. The
shocks were felt all along thc coast.
Two reports .that fhould be of particular interest to the public appear
in this issue. One is the yearly
statement of the city, and the other
is the annual report of the A. & B.

MUNICIPAL ELECTIONS.
The election by acclamation of almost every member of
last year's council is perhaps the best evidence of the satisfaction of the people with the conduct of the city's
business during the past year. There will be a contest
for mayor and a candidate for aldermanic honors has
come out in the east ward against Aid. Matheson and
Roberts.
The Chronicle has expressed the belief that the city's
interests could be best served by the return of every
member of the old council, and it has had no reason to
change its opinion.   The council board of 1908 undertook
the work of providing the city with an electric lightirg
plant and a sewerage system.   As candidates they made.
this definite Dromise to the Citizens' League, and the
League has placed itself on record as being perfectly sat-
r
isfied with the progress made, as also in the matter of
street and other improvements out of a treasury almost
depleted by conditions of an unusual character. In this
respect the 1908 council have demonstrated their honesty
a id integrity in dealing with the ratepayers. If they had
bsen provided with more money they would have accomplished more in the way of civic improvements.
It would have been a graceful mark of appreciation if
every member of the council board had been returned unopposed, but now that there is opposition, the ratepayers
will be able to expre33 themselves "emphatically as to the
men and measures before them.
We know nothing of tha new men who are offering
themselves for office. No doubt they are good citizens,
and therefore entitled to respectful treatment and consideration. If tho ratepayers believe that the new men
will better carry o.i the work with which the old council
have familiarisad tli3rm3lv33, thay will probably express
their preferonca whan they mark their ballots, and no
fault will be found with them for so. doing.
If, on the other hand, a majority of the rate-payers
b )lieve that it would ba wise to give the old council an
p
opportunity of complet'ng the work which they have on
hand, no doubt. ^hey will, go up to the city hall and mark
their ballots accordingly. They will probabjy conclude
that it is not a W^se policy to change- horses while crossing the stream.
There will be universal sorrow expressed over the
determination of Mr. John Stewart to resign the office
of city clerk. His work in that office has been well done,
and the remuneration has"' not been commensurate with
the ssrvice rendered. It is hoped by many that M*\ Stewart may be induced to reconsider his resignation. His
sarvices will be needed the coming summer in connection
with the sewers and electric light.

Notes from Cowichan Gap.
During the gale and snbwstStni
which raged through the night cl lhe
(th lhe small crafts Ashing at Cowichan (lap suflcred severely. Foui
fishing boats were sinashed lo piece!,
against tho rocks, nnd the lish boat*
were all adrift, resulting In a general
mix-up amongst thc boats. Ml.
Thornton, of lbs cannery, got his
boat, badly damaged end lust a few
hundred dollars worth ot good:! he
had en board lor his store. l-Iejusl
escaped with his life. The light
house keeper fared no belter as he
had his skill' which he used to atr
tend to his lights smashed to match
wood. His boat cl the wharf was
als:) partly destroyed.
The Indian.; have lost a few canoes
in the storm which bus raged since
iTiiistinas Vay. They ere up ngaiiutti
t cs they cannot either fish or shoot
ducks or go into.the woods to hunt
lor fear ot the tailing trees, the
leavy frost and thc string winds
making it unsafe.

he has experienced at the Clap. Like
most lighthouse kecpershe has to depend on rain water for household use.
The rain-water is stored in tanks under their bouses. Put the weather
has been sa intensely cold that the
