Both money bylaws granting the
city council thc sum ol $50,000 for
the completion ot the power plant,
anil $9,000 for purchasing road machinery for permanent roads were
given the approval of tho people on
Monday last when one of the hest
votes ever polled on money bylaws In
the history of the city was cast.
It is estimated that the total number of property owners eligible to
vote on money bylaws is between 40O
and 500, but as a general rule little
interest is taken, and the total number of votes cast rarely exceeds 150.
The interest taken in this last, poll
was largely brought about by the
peculiar circumstances which necessitated the poll. There were hard
workers on both sides, but as a general rule the merchants of the city
voted as a unit in favor of both bylaws, while the adverse vote was
largely attributed to the Italian element which came in bunches at ofl
hours, and presumably voted against
the bylaws.
The large vote, as said before, has
rarely been exceeded in the city, the
only instance on record in late years
being the poll for the granting of
the initial amount for the building
of the power dam. At that poll
there were 281 votes cast, 208 ot
these being in favor of expending
the money, while 71 were averse to
it and there were two spoiled ballots
As it was the bylaws on Monday,
had a very narrow sijueak, the margin in the tirst bylaw being only 27
nnd in the latter case 23. Three fifths
of a majority were necessary to carry these monetary bylaws, and while
there wa> actually a large majority
in favor of granting the borrowing
powers to the city, the legitimate
margin was but the 27. It can be
easily seen that had fourteen of
those twenty-sevch votes been turned
over the bylaw would have lieen
Now that the power plant bylaw
has been assented to the city will
be in a position to treat with the
C.P.R. in the matter of furnishing
power to its shops.
Indication That General Election
Will Be Held Soon
Oltnwn, March 27.—There is tho
very best authority lor the statement that Hon. Clifford Sltton will
enter the lists against tho minister
of railways, Hon. Ceo. P, Graham,
in thc Brockvillo district at the next,
general election. Semi-official Information to this ottcct wus secured
this morning. It confirms tbe story
printed several days ago, that Mr.
Sltton was anxious to contoat the
Brockvillo riding with Mr. Graham,
In parliamentary circles It is generally conceded that Mr. Sifton will
give Mr. Graham a hard run.

a mile of the French coast and also
how he swam fifty miles consecutively through the Thames river. Another interesting demonstration will
be the Schafer method of resuscitation, which has been adopted by the
World's Medical Congress and which
is as useful in case of smoke and gas
suffocation, as in drownng. The
Professor will remain in the city (or
the remainder of the week. The program for Fridny will consist of the
following numbers: Australian crawl,

Waist Factory Proves Awful fire
Trap-Girls Perish By Suffocation or Crushed to Death
New York, March 2ij.--One hundred
and forty-eight persons, nino-tcnths
of them girls from the Kast Hide,
were crushed to death on Iho pavo-
iiiciils, .smothered in smoke nnd shl'iv
e.liil I,, a crisp in a factory lire yesterday afternoon in the worst disaster New York has known since the
steamship General Slocum was burned to the water's edge off North
lliiillii'is island in MM. One hundred
and fully-one bodies hnd been recovered from the ruins at midnight
and seven of the 41) injured had died
in hospitals. This, it is believed, com
pletes the list of dead, most ot whom
are unidentified. Grief-crazed relatives besieged the morgue as the bodies were laid out.
Nearly all, if not all of the victims
were employed by the Triangle Wnist
company on the eighth, ninth and
tenth floors of a 10-story building at
'i'.i Washington place, on the western
fringe of the downtown wholesale
clothing district. The partners of
the lirm, Isaac Harris and Max
Blanck, escaped unsciatched from thc
ollice on the tenth floor, carrying
with them over an adjoining roof
Blanck's two young daughters and
a governess. There was no outside
esoape on the  building.
How the lire Btarted will perhaps
never be known. A corner on the
eighth floor was its point of origin,
and the three upper fl„ors were only
swept. On the ninth floor fifty bodies were found, 63 or more persons
crushed to death by jumping and
more than 30' clogged the elevator
shaft. The loss to property will
not exceed J 100,000*.

Lelt to lhe degression ol the piop-
erty owners the money bylaws it on
Monday met with the approval ol a
majority sufficient to carry them
both, yet with such a narrow murgm
that a little organized eflort on the
part ot the opponents would have
meant ignoble deteat. Had the bylaw for the *50,UOO for the completion ol the power plant been defeated
and it would have required a turnover ot but thirteen or so votes to accomplish this, the city would have
been in a very uneviable position. It
would have been in thj possession of
n power plant not paid lor and with
no money to pay for it; the city's
credit would have been impaired and
it might have placed the city in the
limelight as a corporation that refused to pay its just debts. The
money would have had to come immediately from somewhere, nnd in
the long run would have hn.l to
i-ome from the pockets of the People
with added interest anJ additional
expense entailed by litigation which
might have ensued. So looking the
whole thing b iiiarely In the lace the
people acted wisely in voting the
money to pay for the plant-
The question as to whether the bylaw should be voted for or against
had its pros and cons of course, but
ihe argument of the welfare of the
city happily prevailed to such a preponderating extent as t0 pass the
bylaw, and tlie Mail-Herald rejoices
in the decision ol the property own -
ers. However, it must be said that
these *ho took occasion to vote
against the bylaw had just and good
reasou= lur bo doiug. The money
bad beeu spent witbout their approval which is in every way contrary to
;u intent of the municipal act, and
the building ol the plant hn,! been attended by many and various slipshod methods '.hat no doubt had the
tendency to incur righteous indignation and ire. The people must be
allowed to rule, and ignor.n-f this
right came verj nearly placini: the
■city in a Very peculiar predicament.

from blame. The criterion that was

money without the mandate of the
people is still due them, nnd the voting of the money fails to absolve
-tbem in the least. The very narrow squeak winch this bylaw had

Now that the advent of spring IS

few years and the tremendous Influx
of capital has had the ellcct ot inspiring eonlidence again in nil natural resources. Those who will like to
remember the early mining experience
peel of speculation is coming to lie

mi the Inside is beginning to recognize that lhe promotion business is
not ji success unless the subject Ihere

a mat ler of fact the opening up of
properties by syndicates or develop -
mini companies preliminary to ask-

t.„ a slock flotation would seem to
oflcr tho great safeguard to the BUb-
queiil. course of development. There
is n wide scope in British Columbia
