Some Favor Paying it While
Others Strenuously Object-
Special Meeting to Decide
Another ol tbone progress estimatc
accounts ot Wm. Newman ii Co. made
its appearance at tbc regular council
meeting of last night, an;l as usual
was the bone of contention among
the aldermen as to whether it should
be paid or not.
The bill, amounting to some J2MI0,
included footings for piers nt the
power dam, which Alderman Cowan
explained he had told Mr. Newman
to go ahead with as he had understood the latter to say that they
were not to be ehargcd for. "However," he said, "the account appears
here now, and I am sorry that it
does, but I think the best thing to
do is to pass this estimate without
Alderman MeKinnon here interposed, and asked for some enlightenment on the subject in question,
"Has all that cement been put in
the sluice way tor which Mr. Newman has charged?" lie asked. Mr.
Cowan thought there had been, but
it was the questioner's firm convic -
tion that it had not. "There is
nothing surer in my mind than that
it is not all there," he said, " and
I Would move thnt the account bc
laid over." Aid. Abrahamsin tav-
oi'fd passing the account and paying
it under protest provided certain deductions were made, while Mayor
Hamilton advised leaving it over (or
further consideration.
"As far as I am Concerned," remarked Alderman MeKinnon, "I am
not in tavor of paying Mr. Newman
one cent ot that estimate either now
or at any other time, as the estimate is not correct. The city
need6 financing just as badly as Mr.
Newman does, and Tor my part I
think we have paid Mr. Newman
quite enough already."
Aid. Cowan argued that it was a
progress estimate signed by Mr.
Smith of Smith, Kerry & Chace himself and should be paid without prejudice. However, Aid. MeKinnon
stuck to bis guns, and tbe matter
was left over for a meeting to be
held this afternoon at 3 o'clock, Aid.
Cowan agreeing when it was pointed
out that the city had not th.i money
to pay the account anyway.
Aid. Abrahamson brought in n report advising the council of the necessity of purchasing certain road
machinery amount ng to about J7G40.
"The snow will socn be gene." he
said, "and we need new machinery
for putting the streets iu shape."
Among other things which the Alderman advised getting was a stone
crusher in order to get in some good
permanent work on the roads this
year as a preliminary to a Campaign
that would be proceeded with -from
year to year. This matter, too,
was left over for the consideration
ot the council this afternoon as the
board was not in a position to order the appliances until arrangements were made tor financing the
It was moved and seconded that
Mr. Sinclair be notified to l«j here by
April 16th with necessary material
for flush tanks, etc., in order to finish up the sewer construction thut
was  under way  last year.
Moved by MeKinnon, seconded by
Cowan, that tbe assessment roll lie
returned March llth, and Co«rt of
assessment be held April  ISth.
it was decided to hold a special
meeting this afternoon at which Mr.
Newman's bill, thc preparation ot a
bylaw for thc nrci'ssnry money tor
^ I paying thc over estimate on thc power plant, the preparation of a by-
| law ',,r a new Hume and a bylaw for
| r0ad machinery will all bc considered
A delegation interviewed thc cotin-
cil in regard to repairing No. 1 flrc
ball, the meeting room, sleeping
rooms and foundation being in poor
shape. Mayor Hamilton recommended that the matter be rolcrred
to the Fire, Water & Light committee to bring in an estimate ot what
tbc probable c0st would bc, nnd
promised that quite probably something would Ik done, as ho recognized thnt something wns necessary.
Thc committee was composed ot
Chief Needham, li. Belgtrled and
H.  Cunningham  Morris.
The general concensus ot opinion ot
the council was that in view of tne
rnnnrial condition ot the city's finances It was advisable to cut down
donations thin year.
It was moved by Aid. McKli n in,
seconded by Aid. Cowan, that the
band bc glvrn a grant ol $200.—
A bill lor something between $R
nnd $!) tot unloading cement at the
power house submitted by the C.P.R.
was laid pver, it being the opluiou
ot the council  that it  was purely    a
Newman account.
Alex McRae wrote notifying thc
council that the nighl service at the
post office had been resumed,
bis reasons for not havlng this an
before being that be had never been
notified by the council that ths free
light grant was given him.
A bill for ?1«78 for the heating
plant at Strathcona school was ordered paid, the plant lieing taken over by the board.
A bill from the Bowman Lumber
Co. for lumber delivered to Mr. Newman was left over, it being a disputed bill nnd one which the council
thought belonged to Mr. Newman.
The council wished to protect the
local merchants, but decided that it
would be better to luok into this

I pointed out that thc matter was lett

not see     any     way in which to get
around  the bylaw.     In     this      the

Poiiltrymen Condemn Provincial
Victoria, B. B., March 7.—The Kx-
ecutivc of the British Columbia Poul-
trymen's Association at a meeting
in the department ot agricultural
this morning addressed a strongly
worded resolution expressive ot the
association's regret that provision
has not been made by the government for meeting the recommendation of the association that an experimental station be established for
the working out of tlie poultry problems affecting the successful prosecution of this industry in the province.
The resolution urging the date
stamping ot all eggs placed on the
market as fresh was also reaffirmed,
and the Dominion government memorialized lor legislation to make such
dating of eggs compulsory.
Preliminary arrangements tor, and |
a grant of $1080 in behalf of the pro- |
vincial poultry exhibition to be held
in Vancouver from the 15th to the
20th ot January next year were also
made, and R. D. Stewart and L.
Lasallc, of Vancouver, appointed respectively as secretary and superin -
tendeht tor this big show. The entry
fee per bird was made 50 cents, and
individual prizes of $2, $1 nml 50
cents for first second and third
birds. Where there arc more than
30 birds competing these prizes arc
raised to $5, $:i and $2.
It Is recommended that a district
association can be provided for competition by each ol the local associations. J. It. Terry nnd Klmer Dixon, of Oregon City, nnd ED. C. Drew,
of Lindsay, Ont., were named as
judges for thc provincial exhibition,
with one othei to be named, repine
ing Milt,in I'i mis, of Wendell, Idaho,
who finds It impossible to act, Mr.
Terry will Judge thc utility classes,
nnd $100 will be given by the association for tlie egg-laying competion
at thc Vancouver local show.
King, the Architect, Guarantees
it Perfectly Satisfactory-
Two Hundred Yet to Be Paiu
With exception of a drawback of
$2*00 which will not be paid until
they are satisfied that thc heating
plant ut Strathcona school is thoroughly satisfactory, the school board
has paid for the whole heating out-
lit. Mr. King, the architect, was iu
the city on Tuesday, and in conversation with Chairman H. Cui.n.ng-
ham Morris, convinced Mr. Morris
that the plant was put in according
to original intentions and said that
he would guarantee that everyth.ng
was satisfactory. When asked for
the original specifications, Mr. King
told the chairman that none hud ever existed. "There were a few work
ing plans," said he, "but in the
handling of these by the workmen,
they had become so greasy, that
they had thrown them away just as
soon as they were through with
The school board accordingly met
on Wednesday evening with all the
members present—Mr. King not being able to remain over for the meeting—and thc board apparently being
satisfied with Mr. K'ng's guarantee
of efficiency of the work, his bill of
$1878 was paid. The remaining $2C0
will not be paid till in the opinion
of the board the heating apparatus
is satisfactory. As yet there arc u
few technical points in thc plant that
are not just as they should be, but
these will all be adjusted satisfactorily and later Mr. Leek, uu expert
will lie sent from the coast to ex
amine the plant as to its efficiency.
Mr. King, who although stating that
there never were any original plans,
said 'later that he. would see the
Hodson Heating Co., and asrertain
if that firm had any plans for tho
laying out of thc plant.
From tbe expressions of opinions
at the board it was obvious that its
members were not thoroughly satis
Bed with the work, the chairman
coming out point blank and saying
so, but he remarked also, that hav
ing the guarantee of Mr. King, he
could not very well Beo how the
board could hold back tbe money.
A letter was received from Sandon
asking thc admission of two boys
from tbat district to the entrance
class here. The school down there
hns only these two hoys in the class
and thought their chances of preparation here better than at Sandon, so
the application was made. Thc
board did not see why they sh nild
accept pupils Irom outside without
them being paid for, and consequently the secretary will write them and
tell them they can come provided
they each pay the fees ot $3.00 per
month. Thc term will last tour

Get Into the Swim
In 100*8, according to the bnitel
States census statistics, nearly four
thousand persons lost their UTM
through accidental drowning. All
these persons, but three hundred,
were males. It is a strange fact
that many who are exposed to danger Irom drowning do not nmv I uw
to swim. This is true of 'umbermen
of men of the navy, of many who are
crews on ships und bouts. It iu not
nudereslimating the tacts to say that
fully twenty-live per cent, ot uli
yoUOg men nnd boys in Cauada over
twelve ycai'H ol age do not »now
how to swim, nnd thc percentage is
ot course much larger wbeu i.**i .**.•.!
to both sexes and all ages.
Kvcryonc should know how to
swim, tor at. loast three rens.iui: It
is a splendid form of exercise, judged
trom tlie standpoint ot physiology,
resulting in improved health atccm-
pnnii-d Iiy MM nnd grace of Carriage;
It imparts self reliance and cournge
which becomes elements in n man's
Character, increasing his power Both

tion suggested by these facts, the
Young Men's Christian Associations
have undertaken to tcnrli swimming
upon a vpry comprehensive bull,
their slogan being "Kvcry boy nnd
yoiinf mnn in  America a swimmer."
Itevelstoke is to havo a part in
this world wide movement and it is
to be hoped that slio will take ad-
vantnge i.f the ouportunlty. Fur

Templeman is credited with the following:*—
"Mr. Templemau said that in British Columbia the consensus of opin

pact would benefit thc province. Even in the Okanagan valley, the centre of the fruitgrowing industry, he
lielieved that the majority of tbe
people would he found in favor of a
ratification of the agreement. The
minister announced impressively that
ho bad a number of resolutions sup -
porting the agreement. The first he
read Was from the Nelson Liberal
Association, and it was greeted with
laughter from the Opposition. Mr.
Templeman then read resolutions
Ladysmith, NanaitUo, Grand Forks
Cranbrook, Victoria, Vernon, Merritt
Siimmerland and Prince Kupert, all
passed by Liberal Associations, in
some cases merely by the executive
committees ol such  organizations.
Mr. Mitldlebro—How did you get
them   rounded up?      I Laughter).
"The minister said that Uritish Columbia was n large importer of fruit.
Ninety per cent, of the population
were consumers who would benefit
Irom the agreement. Lumbermen,
too. were iu favor of reciprocity, because the <'alil.iin.it market would be
opened to thorn. Thc halibut flshini;
and the toke industries nl British
Columbia would also gam hy the new
arrangement. The agreement, Mr.
Templeman said, would place thc

Will Materially Reduce Annual
Rate of Taxation-All Municipalities Are Benefitted, Too
Legislation giving power to tha
Oity of Uevelstoke to consolidate its
debenture debt lias been put through
the bouse at Victoria under the title
nf the Municipal t'lasuses Act Am
1 mlnieiit Act 1911.
The amendment which by tne way
is a genoral one, and gives all other
municipalities thc same powers as
Kevelstoke, hns been made principally through the earnest solicitation^
of Mayor Hamilton, who visited Vic
toria and the government ministers
.several times on the subject. The
mayor worked hard to get this legis
iation through and to him all th.*
municipalities of UrltlBh Columbia
are much Indebted for securing this
legislation which at any time when
the necessity occurs, they can take
advantage of. The amendment ti
the Municipal Clauses Act, while nol
reducing the actual debt, will have
a tendency tu reduce the annual rate.
This it will accomplish by the tic
bentures being exchanged for stock
which will be .spread over a greatei
period than the debentures them
selves—probably forty or lifty years.
Tbis of course will tend to lesstu the
interest, and will at the same time
be gilt-edged holdings for investors.
While the power has been given tb
city to consolidate its debt, th.; lat
ter cannot, however, ilo this without
the sanction of the debenture holder.-,
but it is anticipated that no tliilicul
ty will be met with from this Source.
The legislation literally means th t
posterity will be called upon to paj
for conveniences, which tlu'y in futur.
years will reap tho benefit of.
The amendment, among other
things,  says:—
"Wherever by Ihis n't power is given to the council to borrow or la's.'
by the issue and sale ol debentures,
or otherwise, any sum or sums ,,f
money, it shall be lawful (or tho
council to raise the whole or any
Portion of such sum or sums of
money in the form ot Inscribed or
registered stuck which shall be a
valid and binding charge upou the
"The authority given by the foregoing Bection shall be exercised by
virtue of a bylaw which shall be approved ol by the affirmative vote ol
at least an absolute majority of all
members ol the council and such
bylaw shall specify among other
things, the purpose and terms tor
which such loan is made; the rate o!
interest thereon, which shall not exceed live per cent., the arrangements
for the provision of a sinking fun.l;
the amount imposed for the purpose
of paying interest and a sufficient
sinking fiintl or annuity, us the caso
may be, to repay the capital at ma
turlty, etc.. etc.
"The Council shall have and may
axercise the following powers or any
ol them:—
"The <'.. .in*.l ma]   from time     t .

Just what difference this will make
to the tax rate of this city has 11 it
yet been calculated at the city hall,
but Clerk Lawson will get busy 011
this before long.
