Newman Wants His Pay and Globe
Lnmber Co. wants Security
Cheque Released
When the city council met last
night they found themselves face to
face with two mure threatened law
suits—one for the recovery of tbe
$11),mil) cheque deposited with the
city Iiy Win. Newmun & Oo., for tlue
performance ol the dam contract and
tme for $17,000 which Mr, Newman's
lawyers claim is due to him.
The demand tor the immediate delivery of the 110,000 cheque was
made on behalf ol the Ulobe Lumber
Oo., whose account against Wm. Newman & Oo. Is said to rim consider -
able over thnt amount. The Claim
for $17,000 the council think is not
correct, as they admit of owing Ml.
Newman only a little over $2,000.
Both these letters were laid aside I
without discussion and  ordered  tiled, j
A matter which caused considerable
discussion was that of laying a new
water main from McKenzie avenue to
King streetl It is claimed that the
present main is insufficient for lire
protection to lower town, and the
matter having been under discussion
at several previous meetings, it was
decided to clean it off the slate one
way or another. The main will cost
according to tigures submitted about
$3,000, and the council expressed itself as unanimously in favor ol doing the work ol improvement providing the money could be squeezed
from |»ome place to do it. M ayor
Hamilton was of the opinion tbat
it could be taken from the recent bylaw providing $50,000 for finishing
the dam and putting in the new
liume, but Aid. MeKinnon stoutly
maintained tbat it would be most
unbusinesslike to touch thia money
for that purpose until the objects
for which the bylaw was crcaled were
complied with. "This money is not
provided in thc bylaw for that purpose." he said,, "and wc can't use it
for anything not spei-itied in the bylaw. If we come out all right with
Newman," he said, "we will have
plenty of money, if not then I want
to know just where we are getting
off al." Aid. Sibbald expressed him
self as being thoroughly in favor of
going ahead with the work. He intimated that thc best way to get thc
matter wiped off was to go ahead
with the work and figure out the
financing later. To this Aid. MeKinnon retorted, "Well if mil's thc
way you feel about it then go righl
to it."
A motion and an amendment u
the point followed on which yeas aid
nays were taken.
The amendment at follows KB lost
—Lawrence, MeKinnon, that the
matter be laid over for oue vtnth
until we find out whether wc have
sufficient money tor the work. Yeas,
Lawrence and MeKinnon; nays, Sibbald,  Abrahamson  ami  Barber.
The motion that the main be proceeded with at onoe was put by Aid.
Sibbald and Barber, and carried as
follows:— Yeas, Sibbald, Barber
and Abrahamson; nays, MeKinnon
and Lawrence.
Aid. MeKinnon rising to his feet—
"Gentlemen, now that the motion is
past I, I want to tell you something
I think it i3 i diculous to spend this
money when the new flume is held in
abeyance, and I as a member of the
Fire, Watei and Light committee
want to apologize that this maeter
has not been pushed ahead more
rapidly than it hus. This matter is
on,' of tm greater importance to thc
ci   - than any new water main."
Considerable dissatisfaction was
expressed by Mayor Hamilton uud
Aid. MeKinnon at the arbitrary actions ol tli Cowan in going uheutl
ami doing tilings without ever consulting his committee. "I want to
km n whether there iB a tire, water
antl light committee or not,-' suid
Aid. MeKinnon. "We hnve not hud
a meeting this year."
Mayor Hamilton could not understand why thc chairman ol the fire,
water und light committee lad gene
at it und cm off the water from the ,
C.P R. hydrant leaving them without lire protection without even consulting un alderman or any ol the
fire, water and light committee. This
he considered, an unwarranted arbl -
trary act OH tbi part of Aid, Cowan,
and a motion ral passed Initruoting
the city clerk to notify the superintend, nt of the water works to turn1
on the water to the C.P.R, hydrant
at once provided the mains ate rot
broken anil also to ask him to bring '
In a iminiate as to the cost ol extending the water main beyond to
the hollow. The flrc, water nml
light commlttM Was also instructed
to ask permission from thc C. P. R.
to run the main through their property. ,
Aid. Cowan* tccoomondatloDs were
considered, hut Aid. MeKinnon wanted thc council to distinctly understand that these recommendations
were by no means those of the fire,
water and light committee.
Several ratepayers on Sixth street
asked the council to order the removal of a shack in that vicinity,
whieh it was claimed were a menace
to their property.
Lawrence and Sibbald—That Mrs.
Stacey be notified to have thc shack
on her property removed at once.
A llusb tank near the hospital was

Says City Looks Good to Him—
Will Back Business Projects
of Chas. A. Barnum
"I am very agreeably surprised,"
was the significant remark mude by
Senator Stone ot Minnesota on his
visit 'to this city on Thursiluy of
this week. "I cume here expecting
to sec what appeared to me from
the train window just a narrow valley, but I find you bave all sorts ot
room to expand and grow, and I
should not be surprised to see in the
next decade a city here ot 25,000 or
30,000 people."
Mr. Stone, who is a typical Yankee
has made piles alld piles of money in
one way and another, but he is still
anxious to make more in legitimate
business, and he "just dropped off
here," ns he remarked to Mr. Chas.
A.Barnum to see to what purpose Mr.
Uuriium was investing the hunch ot
money he had sent up to this country for investment. The Senator
came, he saw and wus conquered nnd
before he left he expressed his willing
ness to allow Mr. Burnum to draw
on him for any old sum he wants to
around in the live or six tigures lor
the purpose of pushing the enterprises he has in view in this country.
"Tne only thing I insist on your doing," said the Senutor, "is to reserve two or three of your prettiest
lots along the river hunk for mc, us
I must hnve ihem. That is one ot
the prettiest locations 1 have ever
bad the pleasure of gazing upon, nnd
I enn tell you I huve been around
n whole lot."
The Senator was met nt the stut-
ion by Mr. Barnum, Mr. Geo. S. Mc-
Cnrter nnd the Mnil-Herald mun, nnd
;P3''just to show him that he was not
burying his money in a sand pile or
a rock heap, Mr. MeCarter took the

Council adjourned nt 11 p.m.
and there is all sorts    ol
room outside to spread out.     But it
was  thc Columbia river  that  tickled
his fancy most.     Just now it is   at
medium height,  and     when crossing
the     traffic  bridge just one sentence
expressed his  enthusiasm and  it  was
this  "My,  what a lot of power      is
going to  waste  there."      And    when
Mr.   Barnum  outlined   his  plan       to
dam  the river he eould  not      under-
stund  why somebody else  bud      not
done  it before him.     "This in connection     with  thc almost     limitless
timbor areas," he said,  "was a wonderful source of wealth to the   community."
Mr. Stone is a man whom anybody
ternoon     when  they met to consider   can talk to and mnke ■friends      with
the question of augmenting the city, despite the fact lhat he bearB      the
police  force.      The  matter  came    up' formidable  prefix  ol   "Senator"     bein  genernl  conversation  and  it    wus   fore his name.     This     characteristic
decided  that an  extra effort    should  encouraged thc reporter to enquire of

Poliee Commissioners Decide That
Extra Effort Shall Be Made
to Enforce Law
Whether this city should he nn
open town or not was one of the
questions which conlronted the police commissioners on Wednesday al- j
lie made to enforce the Sunday closing law. It wus hinted that hotel
hurB remain open on Sundays, and
the commissioners were of the opinion that this should be put a stop
to. Accordingly a motion was pas-
,2tl tbat strong measures be used
by the authorities to enforce tho
closing ot hotel burs on  Sunday.
The commissioners also decided
that tn view ot the Increased difficulties ot policing thc city as set forth
hy Chief Parry in a letter to tho
commissioners, that an extra man
should be appointed temporarily to
the police force.
Wm. Kennedy is the man selected,
and according to Chief Parry when
interviewed, there will be two men
- himself and another man—on duty
during daylight hours, while ut night
three men will he commissioned. One
mun will be Btutioned In lower town,
one man will patrol the main business area and one man thc intervening urea between lower town and
tiie business blocks.

Government Proposes to Set
Aside ta tern Slope ot Rockies as Forest Reserve
In a debuti "ii the bill respecting
[orCBl reserves and parks, Introduced
by lion. Frank Oliver, In which it Is
proposed t" sel  aside by statute the
easl.'ili   .-lope   of   tile   Itocky       Moun -
tnin i as a Fore-i reserve, Hr, A* 8,
Gootleve, M.I'.. proved an able cham
pi,,n of the people's rights. The bill
naturally brought up many othei
subjects than ib*- reservation of timber and   Mr*  G leve  debated       the
question aa follows:
While nearly all ot the Bill *- ictlons

rat-* i*. the protection ol tho park,
antl, therefore, are quite neccssarj
ami quite within the prerogatives
and rights "f the Governor lu Coun
eil, tins remark does uol apply to
BubBection (b), which hits to do with
an entirely diflerent matter. It rotors to certain privileges which may
be granted at the will of the minister, Nearly all of them are very
valuable prlvleges, for instance: 'The
rutting and removal of timber, tlu
working of mines, quarries and mineral deposits, the removal of •■■ ind,
gravel, earth, stone or any other
material, the pasturage oi cattle r
other animals.' Tbe minister ...is,
slated the difficulty that he h-us found
in dealing With persons wll) I'.tsiie
special privileges; and yet by this
BubBection he Is asking (or an un united, arbitrary and extremely valuable power. Tins Bection names pi i

case, and be reluaed. 1 say His

I anil also with regard to the Immense
value ,,'. the natural resources ol
which this measure will give him th*'
absolute control. lie said that bo
agreed in every particular with the
remarks ! made, hut gave as a reason for having this section in lhe bill
liie fact that tho administration of
Hies,' resources hud heen carried on
in a .similar manner hy Hus government before and lhal there was great
difficult) in making general regulations wliieh would restrict and eon
tiol the giving away of these various
resources. It does not appoul t.,, mc
•is a Bound reason thai because this
government   allowed certain       things
i 'cur previously they should con-
Iiiiii,' that poliey. II that policy has
been shown to be injurious to the
public Interest, and to have resulted
in abuses, wc* ought to endeavor to
change it, and prevent this abuse
in tlie future, That is why I should
like l" see this particular clause cut
This clause refers, amongst other
things, to mineral deposits. The
hon. minister will remember that
tiie Dominion Mining Institute has
for years taken special exception to
the administration by the Department ol the Interior of minor, 1 tie-
posits in the lauds under its control.     So Btrongly do they feel     on
this point that there has uot been a
year,   when  it has not heen  brought
up at their annual meeting. They
have appealed lo the Mines Depart
menl to bring iu a bill setting forth
fixed regulations governing the dis-
posa] "i minerals on Dominion gov
ernment lands. We had that question np in the Mines Committee, of
which the hi,n. membei for Rainy
River (Mr. Conneej is chairman, hut
1 regret that so far th,,; committee
has not brought in a bill dealing
matter. I remember one

Ing institute. , ertaln capitalists

is to save the
-■^ young trees, and let them throw open ihe cutting of the timber to public auction, antl give every one a lair
chance. l.et them give tbe cutting
of the timber to the men who comply
with the regulations, and whose ten-
dels are the highest, In that way
the feeling that there .was undue favouritism would be removed, thu do-
purl incut, would he relieved of much
responsibility, and the public would
have greater confidenco in the administration ol those reserves. Without going further Into this argumenl
1 think the minister will see the force
of some regulation of that nature being imposed before wc give him the
absolute control of resources ot such
great   value.
This bill also deals witli water-
power sites and power transmission,
A few years ago these tilings were
considered of not much value, not
only in Canada, hut in most places;
hut today tbe use of electrical energy
from wator-powor has made such
advances that it is probably one ol
the most, valuable of our resources. |
We can readily understand therefore
how men will endeavour to get. eon |
trol of the water-powers winch are on
these reserves. The main argument
made for this reserve on lbe eastern
slope ol the Rockies is thai, il controls the headwaters of ihe magnifl-
ei'iit rlvors and othor water powers
we have Ihere. so that, any one will
see thai lhe clause we are now coil;]
slderlng is dealing witli resources ot
immense value. And one should uot
have lo emphasize the necessity of
OUI' having a standard set of regulations governing them, so that. applicants for wator rights would know
the exact conditions under which they
eould obtain them, the rates lixed,
lhe length of time thoy eould have
tlie use of them, etc. II is not a
siillii'ieiil. answer (or the minister to
say that il is difficult to make such
regulations. We are here to discharge our duties anil responsibilities
ao mallei how dillicult, antl see lhat
the public is protected. We know
what our own commission appointed
ny ihis govornmont has said regarding these water powers, and the
necessity of protecting thom, 1 submit that we Bhould not pass this
clause as it stands, but thai the
minister should he prepared lo give
this parliament some idea of what
regulations lie proposes lo adopt tu
tbe disposing of these various natural resources mentioned in this section.
1 want to reiterate aud make very
clear my position on this matter. I
would like to take up the argument
of tbe minister when be was trying
to show that, a difference in principle
existed between the position of the
hon. member for North Grey (Mr.
.'.liddlehroi and my own. I "think
llle minister did not well sustain liis
contention. Both the lion, member
for North Grey and 1 contend for the
one principle of absolute publicity
and absolute equal rights in the dis
posal of these natural resources. 1
will take the minister's own argument. In dealing with my position,
he referred to the mining law, That
is the principle 1 have contended for.
In every province of this Dominion
we have statutory enactments, or
mineral laws. Every prospector
knows exactly the conditions Under
which he can stake out a mineral
claim. It does not lie iu the option
of tlie minister or of the Governor In
Council to say whether he slmll or
shall not receive that claim. The law
has lixed all the conditions. That is
exactly the principle I am contend
Ing for, so that when a man applies
ior a grazing lease he shall know thc
conditions under which be can obtain thai lease. I think the ninis-
ter scarcely realizes that he is usk-
Ing in this bill t" he made a king
".er j;,.umi,mill square miles of territory, even a man above thc king.
Practically he is given power to suy
lo "lie man, Uo, and be goetb; ami
to another man, Come, and he com-
ctn, because he will bc given power
' * i [UBS that man a right or to give
nun a right. He will control everything except tbc fee simple to that
land. He becomes an absolute czar

acres "I land. I think even the Minister of  Hn*  Interior should hesitate

The GILLETTE Is An Economy
O Not An Exfravariance O
Not An Extravagance
Because a fairly good open-blade razor
can be bought for two dollars, while a
GILLETTE costs five, have you concluded
that the GILLETTE is an extravagance ?
It i'.i not.
Tho open-blade costs you $2.00 to buy and at
least 25c a year to keep honed and in condition.
Total, .$2.25 I'm' tin* first vear.
The (JILLETTE, witli 12 double-edged blades,
casts $5.00, and a second box of blades (should
your beard be very tot Rh) adds $1.00. Total,
$0.00 for first year.   Difference $3.75.
Looks bad for the GILLETTE, eh ? Rut wait!
The three-minute GILLETTE will save you 5
to 10 minutes every timo you shave. Put it at 5.
That's over throe working days a year. Isn't
your time worth over $1.25 a day ?
When you're nearly late for the train or an
important engagement, the five minutes which
the GILLETTE saves you is apt to be worth
several times the whole cost.
Then there's the comfort of the clean, cool,
ensy GILLETTE shave—worth in itself several
times the difference in price.
For real economy—time and face as well as
cash considered—buy a GILLETTE and enjoy it.

We make the Ranges and place them
in your Kitchen.    There's only one
transaction and one reasonable profit
made on the whole transaction.    You
don't have to pay a factory profit—then a jobber's
profit—a retailer's profit—store rent and clerk
hire—and expenses of travelling salesmen.   Our
great "Factory to Kitchen" Plan enables you to buy the
hest  Range for the same price  that the wholesaler and
jobber would have to pay—and LESS than thc retail dealer
could get it for—and on better terms too.
would cost from $89 to $78 if sold by retail stores.    Our square deal
way of dealing direct with you—and saving you all the profits made on
ordinary ranges—enables you to have a " Dominion Pride" Range for
$41 to $49.
Dominion Pride" Ranges arc made of best Blue Polished Steel and Malleable
Iron.    Polished steel does not need blacking—simply go over it with a  cloth
and it will stay fresh and bright.    Malleable Iron will NOT warp, crack or
break, as cast iron will,    Malleable Iron is used by railroads for car castings,
and by fanning Implement Makers, because of its superior strength.   Cast Iron
Ranges are cheap -even at their lust—and expensive for you at am   price
because they .soon go to pieces.    " Dominion Pride " Ranges will last a lifetime
they are built right, of the right materials, by people who know.
11 Dominion Pride" Ranges have proved this by actual tests.     Whether VOU use Wood or
coal " Dominion Pride " will cut down the cost of fuel bv almost one-third.    COLD rolled
Steel plate ovens, sectional iron lining l'"ire Box with air chambers—double walled flues,
interlined with asbestos -extra heavy grates—all help to make  "Dominion Pride" thc
most economical Range you can buy.
Over 0,000 of our RANGES are in use in Toronto alone, and many thousands more in other
parts of Canada. Vou get a Range that has proved ils superiority in every way whon you buy
a " Dominion Pride," and our guarantee holds good for a year. This guarantee means everything to you—because you have an enormous factory and an old established Canadian Company
back of the guarantee. Here's another point about " Dominion Pride" Ranges that is missing
in Ranges bought at retail stores.    You can always get new parts if you need them.
Our price--direct from our Factory to your Kitchen is this—a "Dominion Pride" Range R-1H
or 9-1** top, with high closet shelf or elevated tank or flush reservoir, with zinc sheet lo go under
