Donation of $250 Made Towards
Fall Fair
The regular meeting of the city
counci, was held on Friday night,
with  Mayor  Hamilton  anil      a    full
board present. At the opening of
'the meeting the Mayor said that he
greatly appreciated the council's
work during his absence, and had
kept in touch, as well as he could
[through the newspapers with what
was being donci
From the Agricultural Society asking for a donation of $250     towards
the Fall Fair.—Granted.
From the police commissioners,
stating that they bad recommended
the ap| ointment of a special policeman and suggesting that he also
do the pound work. The salary
would be $80 a month. Hy this the
city would be saved of $G0 expenses.
Aid. Trimble—A. Gowing is not
quite the right man for his job, but
does his best. Mr. Kennedy, the
proposed policeman was a good man
Aid. Abrahamson—The prisoner's
work is not very good and the money for a special policeman is so much
dead money.
The    recommendation was adopted
and Gowing laid off with the promise
of any city work that he could do.
The matter of collecting the road
tax under the new arrangement was
brought up, the idea being that the
police should do it on commission.
Aid. Bews ob-ected to any city
official getting a commission when
on a salary.
Aid. MeKinnon—The city cannot
make the police collect the road tax
the commission plan is not very
good, but it will help get the taxes
in. The matter was left with the
city clerk to arrange with the Chief
of Police to collect.
A petition signed by a number of
rate payerB asking that the tool-
shed now being constructed on Boyle
avenue and Third street, be discon.
tinned as it is detrimental to the
property there.
Aid. Trimble—If thnt is so, what
about the proposed stable on 2nd
street near the Baptist church. That
is far worse.
Aid. Abrahamson—The tool shed
can he made nice on the outside.
Aid. MeKinnon suggested that the
petitioners should pay for tlie work
already done, if they want it removed. It was finally decided to transfer tbe shed to the gaol lots near
the track.
A letter from the Revclstodc Land
Co. wns read, asking for $887.:t5 to
repay for work and lumber outlay
for flume. For the opening up of
Connnuglit avenue, and for the laying on of water to the property own
er, this in 'consideration of the deflection from their property of the
stream to which they had certain
riparian rights.
Aid. MeKinnon—The last council,
I am told, did not agree to do all
this last year, Mr. Lindmark said
that he would buy the lumber on the
Hume and lay water to the city
limits and open up Connaught Ave.
as a road. Now if all this was
promised by him, even if the council
dodged signing, let us he men and
carry out this promise .and rc-im-
burse the land company. If the
Land company will give any con.
cession, alright, but we cannot get
out of what the last council promised!
The Mayor—There is nothing on
the minutes to show any agreement.
It will he very expensive to .pen
up Connaught Ave., we are morally
bound to carry out tlie promise If
made, but it iB not honorable to
an it to do a thing we cannot do.
j Aid. MeKinnon — Wc must not
switch or shelve It.
Aid. Co van—Wc caii see tho Land
company and  discuss the matter.
It was decided finally to meet the
Land company at nn early date and
try and come to some amicable ag-
| I 'Till' n t.
The chairman of the F. W. & L.
committee reported that the agreement with T. F. Sinclair, re tho new
pipe line, was unsigned. This Was
done, and Mr. Sinclair iu to put up
[a bond equal to ten per cent, of tho
tender, a penalty clause of $5 a day
i being put on for excess of time. Six
weeks to finish the work was given.
The committee recommended also
that 500 feet of hose and a new nozzle he supplied to No. 2 fire brigade.
Also that lights be placed in the
lanes each side behind tbc husinees
blocks on McKenzie avenue.
The Public Works committee rc-
ported on work estimates. Side
walk to K, Bourne's hou»o.*~To- be
done. Clearing and grading Sixth
itreet, Ronton to Vernon avenues.—
To be done by prisoners. Sidewalk
Sixth itreet, Orton tu Vernon aven
ues.—Laid over. Clearing and levelling McArthur avenue, Seventh to
Eighth streets.—To be done by prisoners. Grading and fixing Front
street.—To be done.
Aid. MeKinnon—Wo have not enough money for all theso works, and
we must try and keep the taxes below 40 mills, and not keep on adding to the estimates.
The matter ol laying sewer pipes
between the river bnnk and houses
ou Front street south was left with
tbe city engineer.
Aid. Bows railed tlie dust question
again, and urged that it lie looked
after early next year. He bIbii said
that permission should bo asked from
the city by people who wished to put
up signs and bill boards.
Aid. Bews asked if money for the
debentures should not lie in the
bank where the city does its business
The Mayor—There is no need to
bave all the city money in one bank
If another bank gets tlie highest bid
for debentures, there is no reason
why that hank should not handle
that account. There is the same interest obtainable at all the banks.
Regarding the dust nuisance and
the watering of the streets, there is
no reason why Revelstoke should not
be as good as any other city. The
council has never helped yet, and
something should be done.
Aid. Trimble—It is too late now.
Let the business men take it up-
The question was finally referred to
the F. W. & L. committee.
Aid. MeKinnon urged thnt house
sewer pipe connections should be inspected, as well as the house plumbing. The city should appoint an
Md. Abrahamson—There are only
two plumbing concerns in town and
it will mean that the city will emt
ploy one to watch the other. How
would it answer. It was decided to
appoint a plumbing inspector.
Aid. MeKinnon raised the question
ot the 58,000 feet of lumber Mr,
Newman had and was to return to
the city.
Aid. Cowan—I think that Mr. Haff-
ner brought it all in.
Aid. MeKinnon—I never saw it
then. The city didn't sell it, hut
lent it to Eewman. I would ike to
Bee this settled before Newman's
money is paid over.
Aid. Cowan—I will look into it.
Aid. Trimble thanked the council
for their support to him as acting
mayor, and moved a vote of congratulation to the Mayor on his
wedding. 6
Aid. Cowan asked if Aid. MeKinnon would sanction the framing of
the Mayor's portrait. McKinnon's
answer wus inaudible to the press.
The accounts as follows were paid:
General  .^1,100.25
Water    and  light        408.45
Debenture    K      2,945.10
Aid. Trimble Baid that the
cemetery wns in bad shape and that
the city should pay something and
get a man to look after it. The fraternal organizations would be willing to assist.
The Mayor said that the cemetery
was in a bad condition and it was
up to the city to do something. The
matter was referred to tho Public
Works  committee!

Westminster Again Victorious
Almost trebling the score, the New
Westminsters, holders of the Minto
cup, in the second game of the aeries with the Montreal challengers, on
Saturday again demonstrated their
wonderful superiority over the east-
'orners, both in style of play and iii-
1 dividual ability, winning easily, 13-5.
As In tho lirsl contest of a week ago
the team from Montreal was never
'ia tlie game for more than a few min
lutes at a time, and there was hardly
a doubt from the lirst toot of the
whistle as to the final outcome of
the score. Tho tactics that won tor
New Westiiiastcr in tlie lirst game
returned them winners again yesterday, thut is to say, the boriug-in
caducity of the home and the steady
stonewall defence of the goal guardians made it utterly impossible for
the system of the N. h. U. to make
the  slightest im pression.
11 was a runaway game yesterday,
and the reversal of form promised by
[tbc supporters of the challengers nev
er materialized. Indeed, they failed
! to put up anything like the class displayed ia the lirst game, and the
8,0(10 who saw Saturday's fixture at
the Hoyal City park were for the
most part greatly disappointed.
The complaint made after the first
game by the easterners that the referees had banded them out a raw deal
could not have been true of yester -
day's contest, for although tbe Mon-
,trcals got forty minutes on the fcuco
to thirty for the cup holders, they
deserved all they got and no kicks
could  be consistently raisedl
Taken ns a whole the affair on
Saturday was too slow to bo inter -
eating, and while in the last quartor
there was a fair brand of lacrosse
displayed the result of tbc game was
such a foregone conclusion that all
interest had departed, and it was
only a question us to what scoro
would be rolled up. Tbe lirst half
of the game was remarkable for tbo
heavy scoring.
The easterners while cut up ovor
their defeat, said:
"We were beaten by a better team,
that is all there is to it. It is no
shame to he defeated by the present
champions, rather it is an honor'to
be in a class to play them. We aro
satisfied we have had a square deal
from the referees this time. A few
rough plays escaped their attention,
but they could not help that. Play
ing on the crease, tor instance, is not
allowed in the enst, while it is permitted here. Our boys soon got
wise to that and did the same as the
Westminsters, so we have uo kick on
that score."
