Chairman—This meeting has bpen
called through some charges laid belore the City Council at thoir last
regular meeting in connection with
the Police Department and the Police
Commissioners. Now, we are here on
the strength ol rumors we have beard
in the city. I applied to the three
different legal olliccs in town for information in connection with theCity
Oounoil's authority over thc Police
Commissioners, and I have louud according to the three (and the three
agree on this matter) tbat the City
Council haa no authority over the
Police Commissioners; that the Polico
Commissioners are recommended to
aud appointed by tbe Provincial Government. Iu the lace ol tbat the Police
Commissioners were williug i the
same time to make any statement or
answer any tjusstious brought up by
this committee that laid these charges
aud were anxious lor these people to
be given an opportunity to lay their
charges, aud il they were in any way
not sutistied with the information
given them by tbe police commissioners, they had recourse to an appeal
wbicb it ie tbeir liberty to take advantage ol. The police commissioners
have nothing to bide. Tbey seek an
invci ligatiL.i.aud they are prepared
to answer any questions along tbe
lines dealing with these charges that
you may ask. In connection witb
these charges 1 want it distinctly un
derstood tbat these things be brought
directly to tbe point. Tbere is to be
no going back from the charges laid
by this committee. We are not here
to take up old sores or for the purpose
of backbigbting of any kind. We are
here to give tbe citizene ol Revelstoke
true evidence in connection with this
matter and answer any tiue'tions
along those lines. Now I hope everybody will keep as lar a way as possible
from things uot connected with this
matter. As Mr. Keliie is one ol that
committee, I will uow call ou him fur
bis charges, and I think it will he the
opening of this investigation.
Mr. Briggs—1 am instructed by the
delegates, aB their lawyer, to assist
them as lar as possible. 1 understand
it is a meeting ul the police commissioners, and 1 believe my instructions
are tbat no specific charges have beeu
laid. Certain charges bave gol ahout
aud the inlormation given is what we
want looked into.
Chairmau—01, couise, over these
chargCB the city council bas no jurisdiction, you understand. Now those
charges or statements will be laid here
and any questions you want to a-k
will be answered aud threshed out to
your eeeitlnlll'jtii.ll.      I lllr   is    B    meeting
of the police commissioners.
Mr. Keliie—I have to thank tbe
city council and the police oommie-
lionen Inr tha prompt action tbey
bave taken io giving as in opporiuu-
ity to he here, and I would like to
know il the city council has not power
under section 13 to take evideuco on
oath Irom people who aie asked to be
witness:'. Whal we waut in the interest: ol the cill/cuB is a wide scopu
ol investigation. Ae 1 eaid, I believe
there is considerable graft in the town
aud 1 should like tu know il we have
the privilege ol going into theee things
aud clean up things.
CLuirniau—I do not know what you
mean by grail outside of thif particular Case ol the "Bed Lighl District,"
aud thi iu. uut ul niouey being asked
from tb"ee people lor those lots, U
that what you mean?
Mr. Keliie—No, nol particularly,
ihere are jtli-r matt* :-
Chairman—Any queitieni you hove
to ask along those hues I think the
police commissioners will auewcr.
They have nothing to bide. You are
subpoenaed as one ol tbe witnesses,
and as chairman ol that committee I
wish you would make your Rtateiiieuts
along  tbuse   hues,  and y >u can call
your witnesses to   substantiate   those
statements   ami   aHk  lho police commissioners any iiuestiim you like,
Mr.MeCarter—As ono ol those served
with your little Christmas cards, thero
is only one proper way   to   hear   this
matter.     The   witnesses   should   be
heard on oath.    II this i-. a court the
words   should   bo   down in black and
white.   The proper way ij lor them to
make their charges, sign   them,   and
take their responsibility     If anybody
has anything t.o do with 'he case tiny
will have to answer lor   the   responsibility.   The witnesses must appear in
persun brlore yon. and must give their
evidence on  oath.    Allidavits oannot
be recaived.   There   should be certain
specific   charges   laid,   so   that those
against whom tbe charges arc laid will
know   what   they   have to answer to,
What 1 am expected to prove 1 don't
know.    1 don't know who subpoenaed
me-   Bu;   the   proper   way is not by
affidavit, but by   witnesses,  with  the
privilege :f croes examination.
Mr.Briggt—The chiel nl police takes
certain   iustruclijus.    It   resolves it
Bell tu a certain   extent   arouud I hat.
That is what 1 rciiueeieil.
Mr. Trimble—We   are   he o  to explain   matters.    On   my return (rom
tiie South country 1 was shown a copy
of the Mail Herald, in which appeared
statements   made by  Air. Keliie, that
either tlie duel of police, police commissions or in her persons were holding
up   these   women     And   that   is my
reason for calling this investigation, io
allow Mr. Kelly the chance  to   bring
lortb those charges.
Mr. Keliie—1 am prepared to make
a stateraeut ol what   1 did say.    1 am
here in the interests   of   certain rate
payers of this town.   There have been
certain   rumors.   1   do not think Mr.
MeCarter should sympathize or advise
you in the matter at all.    I think it is
your  duty   and   our duty to lind out
whether thoae reports   in   circulation
(of which 1 am not the originator) are
correct.    1 do not know why I should
bo on ray oatb.    1 am here to clear up
this   matter.    I   think my position is
clea,.    I think these   reporta   should
be cleared up.   I cau assure   you that
there is an intense feeling in the town
lor some time, but 1 am not a party to
those rumors.    But I  cannot see why
I Bhould be asked tu go on oatb.
Mr. MeCarter—I am going to asic
the chairman of this meeting to put
other men on oath. I want to know
if this position is not the correct one.
Chairman—Mr Keliie, in yonr letter to me ol last tiatiirdny, you Btated
in that letter where the police commissioners or city council had authority to take evidence and on anybody
giving evidence on oath, did yen nut?
Mr. Keliie—1 did.
Chairman—Now, Mr. Keliie, all the
evidence we have at the present time
is that submitted by yuu to the city j
council. It ia the only evidence pro.
duced here at the present time, and I
do not see why you should mako stale
ments before the city cauncil and mil
make them on oath.
Mr. Keliie.—Why should you auk
me to make a statement ol evideucc,
I am nut a party to?
Mr. Abrahamson.—I would like tO
draw the attention of Mr. Keliie tu
the fact that it ie in lhe interct* ol
the citi/i'ii"  "lid to clear myself ol the
itaioraents that ths police commissioners, chiel ol police oi  somi h dy
else ia holding a graft, anil tin nmn
who makes that Statement should be
put on outh.

know that this Court, has power to

suspicious transactions, he should ne t
ait on the case, but we will call lot tbe
appointment ol a Commissioner.
Ohairman.—I want, to explain in a
word tho commissioner's position.
When thoy Ret through explaining
this matter to yuu, you will bo satis-
lied thero is nothing to have investigated. II you people insist that the
polioo commissioners are involved in
this caae, and that you demand it to
be tried along these lines, we will liaie
to adjourn and have tbem put on
trial. Wi thought yuu would be i il ■
islied. If yuu are not satisfied we will
be compelled tu have yuu make your
charges and have a commissioner appointed.
Mr. Keliie.—I waut to aeo you ahout
this matter and you tulil me we would
have every chance tu get  tu   the   bottom ol the matter.
Mr. Briggs.—It is uot the intention
to lay specilic charges. They Wl nl tl
the Oity Council to report what they
bad heard .inil ask the City Council
to act.
Chairman—Did yuu tell me to-day
that the Oity Council had  no OOUtrol
over the police commissioners .
Mr. Briggs.—1 did.
Mr. Trimble.—1 can see we are
are coming to exactly what I was
afraid ot, and I am uot going to stand
lor it. 1 am going to cull a meeting
iny-i If and sipiaie my own part in the
alii.ir. If they are unwilling tu put
the charges on paper and unwilling l'i
prove them, we will take the mailer
into our own hands.
Mr. Mclntyre.—We do imt nln»:
to substantiate thero, bul we want to
know belore what b:dy wc an: to make
Chairman —V u understand we
have no cjutroe over llie police commissioners,
Mr Mclntyre.—Yes.
Ohairman.—Wheu tbeBe statements
wero brought iu and charges made,
we thought the police commissioners
would be able to show that they acted
in good faith. Until sume charge is
made, they cannot explain anything.
1 am willing to di anything (air ami
just, aud apparently Mr. Keliie is
afraid to make these statementa uu
oath. If he has auv statement to
make, I do not see why he should not
be put ou oatb.
Mr. Keliie.—We are bore to investigate thir in .ner. I am not here in
the interests oi any Committee or any
league. 1 wae at tbe meeting calkd
in the interests ol certain citizens and
I am prepared to make statements he-
lore any person.
Ohairman.—Are yuu prepared to
make this statement on oath?
Mr  Keliie.— Ves, I am,
Mr. .1. M. Keliie,  then   SWOrn,  and
made a statement aa follows
On ur abuut the 2nd ol December,
I.s lntB were purchased (lote " to 12

I am informed,   the   chiel   of   police
notified the keepers ol the downtown
houses they   would   have   to  vacate

is quite within tbe obief's righ's to

The United States did not become interested in the acetylene lighl and Its
automatically generating gas buoy until
about the your mot; anil diil not adopt
it until urns. Then the engineers of
the lighthouse board devised some
wonderful Improvements, anion,-; them
the utilization ot the sun.
The sell lighting and self extinguishing acetylene beacon is a very simple
thing, hut it dependa ulmost entirely
nn the "sun valve." which is one of the
mosl wonderful but least complex of
the achievements ot modern science.
in tho tirst place, the source ut light
for   these   loue   beacons   is   dissolved
acetylene, which is stored under pressure in steel cylinders.    One of these
cylinders can be charged with enough
ens to inst a small beacon three years. ]
Usually, however, in tbe case of float- I
Ing buoys, a six  months' supply is all
that is uocessury, as such buoys are
overhauled  and painted twice n year.  !
Knowing the size of the llauiu aud Its I
hourly consumption of gas, It is very I
easy to compute how long a cyliuderful !

light will need.   The sun valve does
I Uie rest.
I The sclcntitlc principle upon which
Uie mm valve depends is that light
waves become transformed in different
degrees, according to tbe nature of the
Intercepting body. Sunlight upon dark
surfaces ii converted Into heat, and

Qrotetque Sport That Is a Part ol tho
Holi Festival.
The curiously childish borseplaj ol
the Holi festival, which Is celebrated
annually by the mnlniraja .el Pa tla la,
is descrilied by Mrs. c harles liertram
in "A Mugieluu lu .Many Lands." The
aiillieir made the acquaintance of the
famous Hindu ruler during a tour 'it
India and was Invited lo remain over
for the tustivnl.
Marly in the morning I wenl tn the
cluh. where I found many of tbe
guests, who were tnklnj part in the
ceremony lor the firsl lime We were
provided with u complete new snii of
Hindu garments, and our dressing
was superintended by the mahurnja's
servants. We Innl eumels, elephants
nnd victorias provided for us. i was
on an elephant In n kind of box, and
we drove in proeesslou to lhe palate
In the unlive citj
We were received with great acclaim
by the natives, and 1 was led to believe that it was to he decld'slly a dignified occasion. llut 1 was woefully
mistaken. The fun had not begun.
Certain formalities Intel t.e be gone
through before the signal was given
Wo took "ur se;i|s in the conn, ar'!
of the pal ii a long table that was
loaded with large gilt dishes filled with
different  colored   halls   as   larn-   ss
oranges and  fill".!   with  Holi powder.
ai a signal the brother of the mabara- j
.ia came h> the front of tbe table and |
Bulaamed to tbe ptiuce, who took one I
of the hulls and threw it gently across |
the table, striking  n fflcer on the!l»u''lJ KANOH LODOK
The ball broke and scattered the
powder over his costume. Then th-re
was n general scramble, and In less
time than it takes t.i write hundreds
of halls were Hying about, their many
colored contents scattered broadcast on
the crowd. Next baskets of loose powder were thrown upon us in Imudfuls.
It was no use to expostulate. The
moment ymi opened yonr mouth some-
ho.ly tilhsl it with powder. The battle
grew fast and furious, when suddenly
an enormous stream of water from a
lire engine drenched everybody. The
colored powders became wet and min-
glitiL"together, dyed us all in brilliantly
variegated hues.
After this sort of thing had gone on j
for half an hour it -eased by mutual |
conseqt,  nnd   we  returned to the pri- j
vnte gardens of the inaharaja. where
we were in.est unceremoniously pitched Into a tank of running water.    I
was dyed a   deep  scarlet all over my
body, and It was fuliy a nmnth leefore
the color entirely disappeared from my
face and hands.

Sho Knew the Symptoms.
There i.s a certain bright English
actress who comes over here.- every
year or two to play an engagement,
says the Saturday Evening Post.
Among her admirers nn this side Is a
middle aged theatrical man of a Bert-
mis turn or mind. He Is courtly, but
hus been called tlr-somc in conversation. One afternoon at her suit In a
New- York hotel the sprightly lady was
brewing a dish of tea for a couple of
newspaper men. The telephone bell
rang, and the hostess answered the
"Ves," she said, "this is Miss Blank.
Who? Ob, Mr Blink culling. 1' It:"
Then, In n tope of weary resignation.
"Very well, send him right np." She
hung up the receiver and turned to the
newspaper men
"Boya," sh- said, "you'll have to toddle away. My sick headache Is coming on."
