A special meeting of the city council wss held yesterday aftornoou with
Mayor Lindmark, Aids. Pradolini,
Kimberley, Smno and Mocdonnld present.
! Tlio meeting was culled 10 lo. the
contract for the new power dam aud
got* bouso
I Aid. Macdonald, as chairman of the
Fire, Water and Light Committee, reported thut tbe committee had met
tho provious evening, the contract lig-
uroB had beeu carefully gono into;, uud
I the looal mon had agreed to reconsider their figures aud would reduce them.
The committee wore iu favor of tho
contract boing awarded to the local
tenderers, provided tho bonds were
satisfactory, and that the work would
ls- dono in the time specified.
I Mr. Befiner, of tho firm of Smith,
Currio & Chase, the engineers sngaged
by the city, was present and recom -
mended thst the lowest tender be accepted; thst work bo oommenoed     at
' once, and suggested that the oity supply the cement so that in caso tho
dam wanted strengthening it could be
done cheaper thst way.
I The Mayor said the Fire, Water and
Light Committee were nil in favor of
tho contract being given to local men,
end tlv> oouncil endorsed that viev, a!l
well. Public feeling was very strongly in (ovor of the local nirii geltlug
tho contract, bin tho council must not
run into any di-ticulties over it.
Mr. Heffner pointed out that tho reason the local mon were higher than
Mr.  Newman,  the lowest  tenderer, was
1 l>oo«uso tbey hnd to buy their plant,
whereas the outside contractors usually had thoir own plant ready for such
work-   He    explained      that   bis  firm
didn't care who rt ived the contract,
but he wished to be sure that the men
who  took  the work  were capable      of
doing it properly,  and  knew huw      to
handle the contract.
Aid.  Stone  snid   the  local  men  wire
[quite capable of doing  the work satisfactorily.
The question thon arose as to     the
, ndvisabitiu of throwing out the ten -
dors and doing it by day work, but
the engiueer Advised against it. Mr.
Heffner pointed out it was bis opinion
thnt ihe loeal men seemed to look at
tho unwnteringN of the river and drying the dam foundation as a serious
matter      where  as    the    outside    men
I thought nothing ol it, and that made
liim Ihink thai the lucal men were unaccustomed to work of this  nature.
II.- didn't want lu antagonize contractors, but be wanted tu Ix- fair
with the i-lty uud du whal was right.
I'he Mayor said there was little difference belweeii the reduced ligure-, of
ihe local men nnd the outside men.
except in the matter uf the ,offer dam
idling, and looic und solid rock work.
The engineer said he didu't think it
iair 10 use the outside men's figures
as n tool in order lo gel the lo,-al
man to come down in iheir figure.-,
and if this was    done it would be M-
iiiblishing n precedent,
The Mayor pointed out if the city
didn't help their own men uo one else
would, but lhe situation was 11,'t a
pleasant one.
Mr. Newman wns then asked tn meet
ihe oonncil, snd said he could nol
lower the figures, but lie had mado
bis tender, whieh was tho lowest, und
though! be ought to gel it. lb- had
carried out   many   large contracts  and
was quite capable of doing the work,
Tb« cbiel difficulty was lhe extra sum
,,f .MO" for 'he collet Idling dnm which
he local mon had put in. lb,- oilier
•onderers not including it Messrs.
Foots,  Fromey   and   Abrnhiiiiison  were
lien callnd in, olid after having tluJas proceeds from
-ituntion explained, and the difference freshments the sa/
n th» figures for the cnffei dam filling bringing their tender up lo Svl,-
7u0 nbovn that of Mr. Newman. Mr.
Foote naid that tbey could not come
down  nny  lower,   having   tendered    no
lose as possible
Mi    Ahrakamsoti  said  unions   llif in
gtnears  Would be on his  side he      for
om would not  take the job
I    Mr   Heffner nploln~l bs    was     not
I,mated in any way, and did not
«ho     got
'his: but thut ho thought in justice the
traot should go to the lowest tenderer
and also tbat the matter of turning
the river wus  tbe dillicult part.
Aid. Macdonald explained lhal the
lowest teuder was jusi Within tho estimates, bin the local men's figures
were over I bein.
The Mayor ngaiii said lhal il ilu-
local mou would wuivo Uio $d0U ihe
OOntraol  would be theirs.
Mr. Abraham-,.11 suid that if Mr.
Ilelinei WOUl(| s'sy hy them he was
willing to go ou ivjth it.
Mr. Fromey offered lo cul lho matter
of $400 in two, but the Mayor would
not accept it.
Aftor 0 sbori consultation the two
local contractors, Messrs. Footo and
AbrohauiBou, decided to agree to the
terms bul nothing wns arrived at.
Again thu throe men consulted, and
this time refused to tnko it, Mr. Foote
saying thut the elements wt.ru against
them, snd after what the engineer had
told them when discussing the affair,
tbey thought lho contract should bo
givon to the lowest tonder. The job,
anyhow wus uot a nice ono, especially
this timo of yenr and so many unfor-
soon difficulties might occur to sot
back tho work that, the risk was utmost too great.
The     Mayor again    put  the matter
ery strongly, explaining that it was
up to tbem if tbey cared to take   the
job at    tlie figures,    wbicb   exceeded
thoso of the lowest tenderer.
Mr. Fromey said he was willing
to go on with tbe work, nud tho threo
men being ono* more undecided, con -
suited together, this time definitely
refusing to take it.
Tbis was final and the Mayor then
said that they had douo all they
oould to hslp the local men but if
they refused to take the work It wat
up to them.
The local meu expressed their thanks
to the oouncil for the way in which
they had been treated and shook
Mr. Newman was culled in aad was
informed that he hnd been awarded
ibe oontraot.
It   was moved    by Aid. Macdonald,
secvudud   by   Aid.   Prft<_.oli_ai,   Tk*t   th»
contract lor the concrete dam and
gate house foundations be Swarded to
W. Newman & Co., ol Winnipeg, according to the plans and specifications, the work to be oompleted by
March 10th, 1910.—Carried.
Mr. Newman thanked the council,
assuring them that tho work would be
'-oniinonoed at once, and that he
would stand by the city aud carry out
lhe contract  to  the letter.
The contract figure of Mr. Nowman
k Co., is 845,482.00.
The lender for the erection of the
office building ul the power house was
let to 6. ti- Shaw for 8446.71.
Among other business the by-law

: J. 1). Taylor of New Westminster, on
motion to take up supply precipitin,sl
a brief debate on the question of tho
appointment ,,i u new tloutenant-gov-
ei'iior, for British Columbia, lion .ins.
Dunsmuir, tho present lieutenant-governor, having announced his munition
to rolit-0. Ho said according to newspaper reports the executive commit i't>
of the British Columbia Liberal association had forwarded the government
a recommendation iu favor of tlio appointment of Fred C, Wade to this
position, which was the highesl in the
gilt of the government,
I He had put u question to the prime
minister in regard to lho matter and
had hoped to be told thai tho premier
had administered n rebuke to tne pur-
lies who hud presumed to make ol this
high office a mat tor of party patronage. Instead tho premier had said
ihat sueh u recommendation would
bu regarded as a private unit ler. Mr.
Taylor hud dissented from this view.
He suid that .Mr. Wade in thu course
of tho recent provincial campaign hnd
mnde charges against tho McBrido governnienl which could uot bo substantiated. It waa intolerable be said tbat
a man who had sueh charges should
lie uum'.iJ ub thu advisor oi tbe. gov -
ernmenl whioh ho had accused. Mi.
Taylor declared that no man should
receive a public ollice us n reward Ior
taking  purl   in  a political campnigu.
.Sir Wilfrid Laurier, in reply, said
that the government had received noticu from tho lieutenant.governor that
he would retire at a certain dale nnd
before that date his successor would
have to bo named. When the appointment was made the government would
la- op>n to praise or censure and not
before. Sir Wilfrid ridiculed the idon
that the government should censure
anyone for giving advice as to any
appointment or matter of public moment.
Censure would In- most properly due
in those who criticize beforo an appointment is made. The government
recognized its duty and would endeavor to name some oue of irit-proaeh •
able record for the poat. .Sir Wilfrid
dosed by relating that In this matter
the government proposed to be judged
only by its act.
Martin Burrell said lhat F. ('. Wade
who had been mentioned ior the lieu ■
tenant-governorship, must necessarily
be a partisan since he took part in
the provincial election. Others whoao
names had been bandied about in tho
newspapers had la-en mentioned as
ludgc for the court of appeals.
K. L. Borden asked why the wins,hi
..f justice must stop because Hou. A.
It Aylesworth had to go to Europe.
This excuse for delay in ihe appoint .
ment of judge- was absolutely unworthy of consideration. The appeal
■■ourt should have been constituted in
September la-,' Hon. Mr. Fielding
-aid Mr. Borden's remarks were unfair
to Mr. Aylosworth. The liritish Col •
-rnbia governmenl had shown no haste
ive thu ourt ol appeals constituted.

But we were carrying on business—without

The large stocks of whisky we continually

promptness—and with whisky of tbe uniformly
high quality that has always distinguished our

the field in Canada iu the second yoar

II Warning Voice
The political crisis in Great Brituiu
-.lands out as a warning to colonial
statesmen to avoid the pitialls ol older governments. Britain today is paying ior the wrong done the uiu.ss oi
tho poople, when the feudal lords were
allowed to grab everything iu sight
and hold up humanity ou the necessity for dependence on the production
anil occupation of tlie soil. Tlie time
has come wheu the musses ni tbe Lug-
lish voters have begun to think for
themselves, aud ask why their very
llvcs should be at the mercy of tbo
despoilers. Mr. Byron Walker, President of the Canadian Bank of Com •
mcrce, who stands out amoug Cana •
dians as a statesman aud a financier,
has shown in an interview recently
published by us that his Impressions
ol conditions iu Britain justify the
tho ndvnn,-ed policy brought down by
the British Liberals.
The absurdity of the affairs of the
nation being placed in the hands of u
hereditary house like thu house of
Lords has long boon recognized as un-
demootatlo and inconsistent with the
intelligence which statecraft demands.
A struggle was Inevitable, and it bis
come, though whether now to a finality lime ulonu oan tell.
Compromises may dolay tho evil
day but the timo must come when the
House oi Lords must pass away, and
government must be entirely by the
poople, for the jieople, and of the people tliomBelvos, resulting perhaps in
only one legislative chamber. Pwo
chambers are no more necessary in
Britain or in federal Canada than iu
the provinces, and though Quebec retains the diuil house it is an iinneMS-
suit burden on tho public expenditure
and as useless as the fifth wheel ,.f „
The dual legislative both owes its
origin to class privileges and land
monopoly, and it is against the creation of a landed monopoly that British Columbia should bo warned.
The land of British Columbia is
limited, and il is one oi the lirst necessities of our lime that strict precautions should lie taken against lano
monopoly, and the growth of iurp!
landed estates. Tho land laws should
bo such as will encourage the occupation of the land of tho province iu
small holdings, and still prevent l'-e
aggregation of these holdings in tho
future by a few wealthy men. As Mr.
Herbert Temple, the chancellor of the
British  Kvolieqiior, remarks:
"The real meaning of tin- enthusiasm
aroused by the budget is that tbe
country lias risen in revolt ngninst
the land monopoly, ll hus impoverished our iiiinl dislricl-. ii lias driven
old industries away from uur villugCH
and lias proveulod the estnblishiiieui
ol uew ones. Ii. has emptied Ibeliigh-
lands, audseattered the robust popu -
lation from which came the most
, -plondid material Ior the defence of
the country to the ends of lho earth.
It. has cramped llie natural healthy
growth of our towns."
Let us see then thai in British Columbia wo take to heart this lesson
of tbo battle now being su vigorously
waged iu Ibe uld land, thai, in Ilia
days tci come the couditious uf landed
monoply which now i-urso the mother
eountry and which bus cursed Australia und New Zealand, shall not be repeated in this fair land.

The little empty slocking hangs at the

slocking tliat is all too suiall to hold the
precious things lh" loving Saint will bring
la-fore the ilitwn will break on Christmas
morning. Perhaps the Utile stocking will
be a bit larger at each recurring Chrislinns-

uther and still tinier stockings may bear it
company; peihaps even there will come a
dreary time when ihe Ibe place is bare,
when longing eyes turn away and the filck-
,'i ing light of the lire is bard and cold. But
no mailer what the years bring or take
away, the spirit of Friendship and Kindness
remains: At the end of the busy year, full
of eifoit and struggle, comes tbo season
when we forget lhe trials and welcome the
opportunities—when we count our friends
.mil lind them many when we choose for
i liein remembrances (not hastily and because
iif llieii cost, tint because of lhe pleasure
Ihey will bring)- when we realize to the lull
lhat life is worth living, because for once it
