wered or filed.
C.P.R., who are meeting the light
hill for Y.M.C.A., applied for the
contract price on same.—Referred to
Vi. L. and P. committee.
Letter from the Medical Officer slig
gesting that a notice he inserted in
the local paper to the eflect that all
householders should note that it is a
misdemeanor to conceal from thc
Medical Officer any suspicious disorders or illness, this with a view to
enabling cases of infectious disenso
to be better controlled.
Tbe C.P.R. submitted an account
for siding rent. Aid. MeKinnon moved that, in view of the fact that the
Railway had this siding for their own
use, the amount should not be paid,
especially ns the city had paid out
•It'.O to have their lumber carried
round the cars. Account was referred to thc F. W. and I,, committee, !
•nth this recommendation.
On n communication (rom Hon, Dr.
V,,ung, stating that the scale of remuneration for the city police magistrate han lie, n set nt J75 per mon-
Ud. MeKinnon took exception to

attairs. Moved by Aid, Bourne, seconded i,> au. McSorley, thai the

of the city in regurd to the salaries
ol police magistrates appointed and
paid by city corporations.
A letter was read from. Mr. G. 3.
MeCarter. re the lease for the Western Turf  Association.
Aid. MeKinnon—What light hus
this council to bind the council ot
1919; citizens money has beeu expend
ed there under thc Park bylaw, now
why should citizens be taxed for improvements on  leased ground.
Aid. McSorley—I don't think this
money will go to the shareholders of
the Turf Association, It will all revert to the city.
Aid. MeKinnon—According to CF.
Lindmark, about $1500 of citizens
money bus lieen spent, thero we hav.i
track of $1500. ln yesterday's paper
I see they are figuring on thc Agri -
cultural Society puying rent. It we
grant such lcii*-rs, the Turl Associa -
tion can settle the rent.
Mayor Sutherland—The idea seems
to lie lor the Agricultural Association to have a society nnd (air with
enough prizes to mnke a big fair.
■neb an association depends upon
continuity ot policy and I favor tbe
twenty years.
Aid. McKiunon-1 doubt it it iu
legal for the council to give u twenty yenr lease dating from 1919.
Mayor Sutherland—Perhaps we can
get Mr. MeCarter on thc 'phone and
find out our legal position now. Tho
Agricultural Association and the
Turf Association aro both anxious to
ret. this settled iu time for the present coast convention, so that they
will he able to proceed on a sound
Clerk l.uw.mn went to the 'phono
and returned stating that ho wos unable to get Mr. MeCarter.
The matter of Power rates for Industries was laid over for the Light,
Power and Water committee.
Account from Medical Officer Mc-
I>eiin was suggested to lie laid over

itruetlonl to the city clerk to Insert

Account for plumbing work done
by order of the plumbing Inspector,
was referred to the eity solicitor for
advice as to powers.
The application for nn extension of
lease by the Turf Association, was
laid over (or attention and advice by
city solicitor,
Aid. McSorley—It thii leaee can be
granted  wo might pass a  leuBC    for
I the twenty years.
I Aid. MeKinnon—I think wo should
lind out whore wo nro.
| Aid. Abrahamson—I think a uomiu
nl rent to the Agricultural Asaocia-
, tion Bhould ho included in the Tui-I
[Association lease.
Aid. Abrahamson, ro Public Works
committee report—I think some of
this council should bo appointed to
meet the businessmen nnd others and
got down to somo basis re the sewei
Mayor Sutherland—That is a very
good Idea.
Aid. MeKinnon—The difference in
the sinking fund between 20 and 50
years would lie some -$2,000 per year.
Movod by Aid. Abrahamson, s-.o -
emded by Aid. MeKinnon; that a
committee of tho counoil, with power to cull in tho aid ot citizens and
to formulato a scheme re sewer question, and report.
Mayor Sutherland appoints a committee of the wholo council in accordance with tbis resolution.
| Finance Committee—Aid MeKinnon
reports ro consolidation of dohentur-
| es; un amount was allowed the auditor, being a percentage of tho saving
effected. I think as such a motion
wus pnssed, tne auditor should rece-
ivo the instructions to go uboad and
consolidate theso doljcntures. The auditor was to go east, but tho mutter
dropped. All be asks iu uu amount
ot porccutago ou the saving, a total
ot ubout $300.
Aid. MeKinnon—If this consolidu -
tion cun be completed, it will put thc
city on its feet. The money which
would be provided in future could bo
spent on city improvements instead
of swallowed up by thcBe short duto
sinkiug funds.
On motion, the Finance committee
were requested to muke a detailed re
port on this matter anil submit to
next council meeting.
Moved by Aid. MeKinnon, second -
ed by Aid. Howson, that Auditor
Stein be appointed auditor for the
comiug year.
A temporary loan bylaw authorising the borrowing of $20,000 from
thi Molson's Bunk to meet expenses
due for payment betore tho city revenue comes payable for current year
to bo repaid on or before 31st Decern
her 1912, was adopted on motion by
Aid. McSorley, seconded by Aid
Bourne, second reading.
A matter of an account against
Mr. Stone, being bill for putting in
a grease trap ordered by the plumbing Inspector, was referred to the
l'uhiic Works committee.
A motion was passed that the
Siacluir account $531.33 bc paid.
Finance committee presented var -
ious accounts :or payment, genoral
ai-count, $3('»27.65; wator and light,
| A deputation from Firo Hall No. £
namely Messrs. McRae and Square -
briggs, waited upon the council asking that teams be arranged for conveyance to fires ut nights. Also thut
in coses of fires only some authorised persous be ullowed to cnll iu tbo
lower town brigade in cases of fires,
thus reducing expenses in cases of
small fires.
I Mayor Sutherland—No doubt in
winter nnd at all times, the horse
should be provided. The council will
have to go into both these mntters,
and will consider sume carefully.
Aid. MeKinnon—The best way
would be to have horses at tho fire
hull stabled there, and a man sleeping at the Fire Hull could lie on tbe
Job all  thc time.
j Muyor Sutherland — Perhaps we
could get a teum for tbe stable and
feed at night.
I Aid. Howson—I hardly npprote this
The Muyor—This matter is referred
to the Water and Light committee
for consideration and report.
Aid. Abrahamson—The second matter might lie tnk.il up by the two
brigades and submit recommendat -
ious to thc council.
Muyor Suthcrlund—Yes, the brig -
udes can get together nud make their
rci'Otnmeuduttou. Motion adopted accordingly

will be somewhat longer than to Nei

The report ol thc surveyors anil
