aldermen were divided in their
opinion as to the advisability of
this. Some pointed out that at

trustees were asked to bring in a
fair plebiscite. Mr. Manning virtually told the council that they
would bring in a fair plebiscite.

The School Trustees mel this
morning over the school site and
finally brought in a resolution
lhal the two money by-laws in
themselves are sufficient plebiscite and that no other plebiscite
is required. The board also felt
that there might be an awkward
situation if lhe by-law to purchase
Block o2 failed to carry and the
plebiscite went in favor of building there.

Several matters of great importance
were discussed and dealt with ai the
general meeting of the Mountain Lumber Manufacturer*' association held nt
\.'l-.in this week. The one lo which
greatest interest attaches perhaps is
• i decision to adopt the Mississippi
valley rules in the grading of the belter classes ol pine lumber. The object
ni this is lu get a better classification
nl grades in this particular Uiul ol
lumber.   The meeting also endorsed the
odd lengths r lution adopted al  lhe
conveneion of western Canada lumbermen helil ai Vancouver a lew months
ago. Among other matters taken up
were labor conditions, the position tb
be taken be]  the lire insurance companies when ii -ii- iii Nelson in regard rn lire insurance matters and re-
'■ni legislation at Victoria, particular
ly that relating to the tenure of special licenses, the extension of time
granted by the government! being heartily approved.
One of the nin-i satisfactory features of the gathering was the spirit of
npiiiiii-iii which prevailed, all the
manufacturers present agreeing that
ihi-- promised to be a record year for
the lumber industry in this pari of
the country.

had happened to ihe dam, ami heard
ihi' crash of timber and saw the men
dashed into the water, fius Laakso,
the foreman, one of the deceased, wall very competent man and thoroughly
aeipiainieil willi roek work, There
was no particular danger at thai
place and iiii cracks, although the
rock was seamy generally. None ol the
men had expressed any fear of lieiiiL'
there. Whenever there is danger ol
the rock slipping, posts are always
pm iu, hut mt cracks could lie seen at
ihis place and posts were therefore
unnecessary. The rock that fell camo
from jusi.above the men drilling, a'"l
it appeared (quite solid. If the rock
had been loose they would have ile-
leeted if, esneciallv as the men had
gone over the face of (he rock with
picks in-i after the holes had been
lired. None of the deeensed had ever
expressed fear of working ihere an 1
no coniplaiins had ever been made.
The foreman, tins l.aakso. could have
stopped the work there if ho had considered ii dangerous,
I A. E. Foreman, engineer in charge
of the work, stated iiuii immediately
previous to the accident he was stand-
inur only a few feet from the scaffold
where the nicn were drilling, looking
for seams in  the rock that  might  re-
iquire grouting. He saw none. It
i ■
was not dangerous to work  there except for the pieces of rock that  might
full from the slope above, but  in    this
place the overhang made work  underneath    safe. Laakso was a competent
man.     The lock that fell was a large
slab and came out of a pocket, there
I being no crack there of any kind. The
nicn were taking all customary     precautions to ensure safety,
j   J.  Holiday, a laborer al  tho work,
saiil that he was working there in the
hole shovelling dirt at the time.   The
rock fell before     he    heard the shout.
I There were no cracka in the rook ami
inoiie of     lhe men had ever expressed
any  fear al   working at  this  place, or
say ii was dangerous,
0, Olivito, laborer, said he had no-
liieil cracks in the rock there and had
told somo of the men that the place
was      dangerous. This witness  was
very unintelligible and hi> evidence
had little semblance of what      really

Valuable Remedy
Tilings are different now and I would
like to -is. what ih,- people think. The
school board seem rather exalted in
their ideas for finances. We must
think of future (axes, and separated
schools would lie very expensive to
run. ll would !»' best I,, refer the
matteo back. A bylaw- fm- 130,000 \.-w Vork, March 2o—Authoritative
could In- put ami a plebiscite taken on announcement of ihe i'n st authentic

Ald. Mekiiinuii: Separate schools ti- by means ol intra-ventriculor inure mure expensive tu operate and less jections ,»i the Flexner serum was
satisfactory. The public want central made at a meeting of physicians and
schools and I favor that mn. It is surgeons at tin- New- York Academy
very ridiculous why Sir. Miller should "i Medicine recently. Thnt this dis-
change hi- ideas from centralisation ease, which proves fatal invariably in
tu separating lhe schools, Mr. Pollock the cases of children under two years,
I believe is tin-  same;  such switching j has     i*      mastered through ihe re-
appetirs    m     me   funny.        Separate, seat h of Dr. Simon Flexner, head   of
schools   in- t,. me in, good, tlie grad- the     Rockefeller     Institute ot Medical
Ing being difficult; 95000 a- tin' city's Research, was admitted scarcely with-
short ol block 59 would be saved very mn opposition by the physicians.
And Its Keeping Qualities
SOME people find it necessary to buy a considerable quantity
of (lour at one time—sufficient to last for a lonr; period.
Naturally they are anxious to procure a f.our of the kind best
adapted to lengthy storage.
