Under Discussion.

Contrary to expectations tha council meeting oi Inst night was n veritable love least, every member being
in thc spirit and of one accord. Except for a little jarring note here
and there in thc preparation of the
estimates, an.l a mild kick from AH.
Abrahamson as to certain mis-statements emanating from the press everything went along merrily. The
power plant was apparently a dead
issue, as scarcely a word was uttered
on the subject—it being understood
that the work at the plant was so
near completion thnt nothing more
need be said on the subject for a
time at least.
The provisional estimates for the
year was the principal topic dealt
with, but inasmuch as these had been
practically cut and dried at an informal meeting the fore part of the
weak, there was little else to do but
formally assent to them by motion.
This was done.
The estimates provided for an expenditure of $87,986.20', but of this
there is a sum sufficient consisting of
arrears of taxes, book debts, mouey
in bank, etc., etc., to cut the amount requi.ed for this year down to
$38,435.38. Taking this amount required as a basis for the tax rate of
the year it should vertually bring
the rate to somewhere between twenty-three and twenty-four mills, as
one mill on  practically every     $1402
meet these reductions. Hpecial atten
tion tbis year will he given streets
and sidewalks and the sum of $2,250
was asked for to meet repairing expenses nnd another $2,250 for construction.
The amounts upon whicli the     tax
rate is levied were as follows:-—
Administration      $ 8,76O.O0
Public safety   Ill,655.00
Public charity      2,100.00

Bulkhead Drops at Three
The latest reports from
the power plant is that
the bulkhead will be dropped at three o'clock this
afternoon. This does not
necessarily mean that the
power will be on to-day
from the new plant, although such might be the
".ase. There is considerable slush ice in the new
flume left there by the
recent operation of the
plant, and it will be necessary to cltar thi j away before the machinery is set
in motion. It iscofidently
expected however that the
power service will be continuous from the first of
next week.

to be safe than sorry, decided     that  tjon,

says: "I do not find any ground fpr
complaint. The United States has
never, and never will be able to

these days owing to the announce -

has partially reorganized and appoint

where he had charge of 32 mines in
which over 7,500 men were employed,
to the generalship of the corporation. Since the asbestos merger was
elTccted, it has been felt tbat the full
saving in operating costs has not
been attained, but plans arc already
under way whereby at least $40,0*00
a year in administration expenses alone will be saved."
Although opinions differ amongst
the lumbermen, the feeling seems to
be that Canada is not giving away

was suggested by Alderman MeKinnon as chairman of thi* linancc committee, who noted in going over the
vouchers that the city in every instance paid the full retail price of
every article furnished. Every business institution, Mr. MeKinnon remarked, took this method of cutting
down exiwnses, and ask why the city
-hould not adopt the same method.
The other memberB of thc board wero
unanimous, and immediately ac
qiilcsced in his opinion, the mayor
remarking that sometimes be believed the city paid more for these goods
than the ordinary individual purchaser. Acrordinely a motion was passed authorizing the eity clerk to call

Millions Are Angry-Fish Interests Pleased-Asbestos Not
Montreal, Feb. 8.-The industrial
and commercial world has had ample
time to digest the reciprocity announcement and It Is much easier
now to get a clear nn.l concise view
from those vitally interested in tho
way thc affairs of tbe country arc
shaping, than it was directly after
thc proposed agreement had lioeu
mude known. Much to thc surprise
of mnny, Montreal, llie centre ' of
manufacturing in the Dominion, is
not as heavily hit as might have
been oxpocted.
The millers are angry, at least
most of them are, and arc preparing
for battle.     They declare that      the
Taft Thinks Canada is Premature in Attempting Reciprocity
Washington, Feb. 8.-K U. H. administration senators had any doubt
about thc attitude ol President Taft
toward the Canadian reciprocity agreement it was removed when Senators Crane and Carter returned to
the Capitol today Irom a conference
with thc President at thc White
Mouse. The messago which theso
senators brought to thoir colleagues
was that there must bc a vote on thc
agreement at thc present session or
Congress will be called back in ox.

adjournment March 4.
Although Senators Crime and Carter declined to discuss their mission
to tho White House, tho report soon
leaked out that the President was
insistent on a vote. It is said that
he made plain his belief that thc
country generally favored thc adoption of n reciprocity treaty agreement with Canada; that the hill to
put the agreement into force will
pass the House with a large majority and that the Senate would enact the mensiiro if given opportunity
, to vote on It.
Thc rules of the Senate, which permit iintiameled discussion of a mcas

Senators Heyliiirn and Ilailey are blt-
I Icily opposed to thc ngreemrnt and
i that the opposition extends also to

Opportunity has been the keynote of many a fortune, and it will be
for you if you invest right. The opportunity is now offered you to
invest in Oil,Coal and Gas. The Arrowhead Oil, Coal and Gas Co., Ltd.,
incorporated Jan. 1911, is now placing* on the market for the first time
a block of
50,000 Shares at a Par Value of One Dollar Per Share
Terms of Payment:   25 Per Cent. Cash on Subscription;   25 Per Cent, in Thirty Days:
25 Per Cent, in 60 Days;    25 Per Cent, in 90 Days
The Company has sufficient faith in its property to throw the first big block
of stock upon the market to local buyers giving them the first and probably the
only chance to get in on the ground floor of this valuable property.
This Propetty has been thoroughly examined by Samuel Aughey, Ph. D., L.l.D.
E. ML and his repcrt, which is more than favorable, can be seen by prospective purchasers at the office of the Company in the Taylor Blcck, opposite the Lawrence
Hardware Co.'s store at any time during office hours from 8 to 12 o'clock and from
1 to 5 o'clock.   Inspection is invited.   No shares will ever be offered below par value
The object for offering this stock is to raise funds for the development of
the Company's holdings at Arrowhead, B. C, consisting of 3,200 acres (as soon as
licenses are procured bycompany) of the best Oil, Coal and Cas Lands in the Province. Mr. J. 0. Bradley, the Managing-Director of the Company, has already given
demonstrations of the quality ofthe gas of these lands at a dozen or more business places in the city, the proprietors of which are very enthusiastic over the
illuminating qualities of the gas. Anybody wishing to see this test can do so by calling at the
Company's Office.

I take an interest iu these articles,
necausc they purport to treat author
itatively of a matter affecting the

as stated, with much curiosity because I am at once si ruck by the

some matters and people open to

not distort and exaggerate them as
you have done.

come aroused by the aggressive articles ci nlu.in -I  in your pnper recent
loualy Iml not lo,, wisely. I think
if ilii'se MrtoUl minded citizens—If
th", be would pny less attention to
i" i and itreet corner talk, and
give umi'. time io ascertaining the
true actions ol the council, from
miii' authentic source, they would
t   i   i   readil]   tooP to criticise   the
dolnga ol the city officials. Por their  here and should pull    together

fart that at pnwnt su, li eflorti nre n,,. Dominion
   put forth as will  ensure      th.
spring IreshetB set in—a matter
which should tie ot consolation to
these worried citizens.
In conclusion allow me to state
that in my opinion the hostile attitude adopted by your paper in arraigning tho civic authorities bolero
its tribunal Is not for the city's welfare. In th,' past Itevelstoke has to
its  sorrow  witnessed  much  factional
i  and   petit   animosities;    and    I
think it ill-becomes you, a strang-cr
in our midst, to speak  thus. For
although, perhaps, unintentional   on
your part, such talk tends but to
resuscitate and kindle into flame tho
dying embers ol wnsteful flres that
we had happily, nnd ns wc thought,
for all lime extinguished. Hnthcr I
would counsel you to commend to
the piilrtic thc sentiments expressed
and cherished by our worthy mayor,
Hr. Haml.ton, and recently by yotir-
uelf published per hucc verba.

AT 11 MtATiiti
"Managing Mildred," a play in two
acts und composed largely of a story
embodied in one of the most popular
comic operas of the day, un.l containing music from grand operas and
several comic operas, was thut which
the English opera singers and symphony orchestra put on at the Kdi-
.-oii theatre on Thursday night of
this week. The story is well put
together and the musical numbers so
cievcrly introduced as to have the
appearance oi belonging to the play
itself, although as intimated, they
nre almost all taken from other comic operas and interwoven in tbe
.itory whicli is also taken from a
popular comic opera. Bearing this in
iiimd thc play cannot be termed orig-
ii.ii. and also bearing iu mind thnt
,t was played by former members of
operatic companies, it cannot be
gainsaid that "Managing Mildred" is
nothing bin a vehicle for the exploitation of four excellent and wcll-train-
i ed voices, the possessors of any ouj
of which would do himself or herself
justice iu many a larger and more
■ pretentious company. ln this potpourri of musical selections the tour
members of the company displayed
excellent talent both as vocalists
and actors, and that the large audience was highly entertained and
pleased with their efforts in both dlr-
"I'tuuis was evidenced by the con

Montreal, Feb. 8.—Senator Landry's question in the Senate concerning American spies at Quebec during
the Tercentenary has caused no .end
of talk, especially in military circles. It has also recalled the fact
that Canada, with the exception of
her Corps of Guides, has no secret
service of any account. The Dominion police, of course, intimes of peace
do all the government sleuthing, but
ihey are not numerically strong enough, have not the time and are not
properly trained to obtain military
intelligence. It is interesting to note
that, in this respect, during the Ger.
man war scare, which became so ncute
in W07-C8, officers of the Corps of
Gui.les received instructions from
headquarters at Ottawa to keep
their eyes open for Germans who
might be nosing around trying to
jet Information about tb3 Dominion.
As far as can be recalled only one
man was under suspicion and he
turned out to be nn agent for a
patent electric lamp,

To Achieve  Uniformity from
Coast to Coast.-—Opinions of
The following article by H. 0,
Carson, F.S.S., in the Financial Post
is of special interests ar thc present
To achieve uniformity in accounting
results, some effort towards uniformity in methods ol administration
must be made. This can best lie done
by provincial action, cither legislative or administrative. The depart -
ments of a city and the bureaus attached to each department should be
defined. Kach should be known by a
uniform title, with Identical duties
and responsibilities. Thn administration could well be divided under the
lollowing departmental captions, so
fnr ns expenditure is concerned:
1. General  government.
2. Protection ol life nnd property.
8.   Health and sanitation.
•1.   Streets  and  highways.
5. Recreation.
6. Charities antl correction.
It  will  be  observed that not    i uly i
capital expenditure, hut the operation of schools and public utilities,
are not included in the foregoing list
of departments. The omission is intentional. Public schools are not
governed or controlled by the municipal council. Their sustenance is not
derived from the general municipal
taxes, and therefore neither their income nor expenditure should find a
place in the current municipal revenue account. The same argument applies in part to all public utilities,
While controlled by the city, their
operation should be hold apart from
currtnt revenue, each utility providing its own statement. The only item
concerning utilities which should appear is the amount, contributed to
! current income account by each, on
account of debenture interest and
sinking fund. Thi' greatest care
should be exercised in this connection
At the proper time, thc city treasury should cause a debit to bc entered against such utility for the re-
Hiiired sum, and nlso     make certain
that a like credit to the city      has   *, nnch	
been entered in the books     ot   each
Having divided tho administration
into departments, the next step is
to determine the various groupings
to be classified under each. The suggestions following may be more or
less incomplete, nn.l capable of amendment or improvement, but they
will serve at least as a basis (or
further consideration.
1. Gtneral government— Mayor's
office, solicitor's ollico, treasurer's
office, auditor's ollice, assessor's of-
lice, clerk's office, engineer's olli.e,
ruder tbe miscellaneous, such items as elections, litigation and dam-
nee.-, public entertainment. grants,
expenses ol council, Interest and sink-
Ing funds, an.l expenditures special
.n nature,  Bhould be placed.

Health  and   sanitation—Administration, scavenging, Btreet cleaning

■   sundries,

Immediately cashed by these business
places nn 1 in due course were presented at the Imperial Bank, where
Mr. Howson does his banking. There
the forgery was detected ns Mr. Howson in signing chctiucs always u-^es
the firm signature aiV.l never his personal name. It was quite apparent
tbat two men had been in tbis conspiracy to defraud, as the
face of the cheque in ench case was
in one h-andwrltlng antl tha endorsa-
tion on the back being the name of
John Nelson in another handwriting.
It appears thnt this John Nelson bad
previously been employed with Mr.
Howson, but owing to his dissolute
habits was let out some time ago.
All efforts to catch him have so far
boon  without success.
