hud become a practice in many places
to give a mayor or reeve a second
term on this account. What is proposed is that mayors shall lie elected
tor two years and aldermen for the

views of some who prefer the one year

new plan would he put in lorcc it he
submitted to the ratepayers at an annual election.
Control ol private clubs was another
matter taken up by the executive.
This is, of course, as to a number ol
organizations which abuse the club
privileges tbey possess in common

was informed that the government
had decided to introduce legislation
on this subject at the coming  session.
It was also asked that the holding
ol courts of revision lie placed earlier
than at present; that the school rate
be, increased Irom five mills to ten,
and that registrars be authorised to

requested on thn meaning ul doubtful

TAXES A.M) COMPLAINTS
Human nature would not be
human if it didn't have something
to kick about and one of the chief
things cf the present time which
the people are levelling their complaints at art* their taxes. No
matter if the taxes nre high or low,
they grumble just the same. It
has been long a close question
which has aggrieved humanity
most, death or taxes, and neither
has prevailed us both are certainties, lt Ib loo uiucli to expect that
people will pay their taxes cheerfully. Thi' origin of taxes harks
back to the lime when kings continually forced Iheir subjects to
contribute money and goods, to
spend on tbeir twin mistresses—
war nnd personal extravagance.
Hut today it is all different, for
while the contribution is still forced
tbo force used is that of the people
tbemselves. In a democratic community taxes are nothing hut cooperative and contributions to the
common good. hui still they are
not paid cheerfully because of the
lurking suspicion that equality
does not prevail. VV'e would bave
the people understand that co operation in public works and in all
matters that will aid in the ml
vanooment and welfare of the community leaves such a wide margin
oi profit over anything that a man
could du individually, that substantial equity, if not perfect equal-

FRUIT EXCHANGE
Directors Meeting — Details of
the Year's Business-
Future Plans
A meeting of tbe directors ol the
Fruit A. Produce Exchange of B. G.
waa held in the local office on Tuesday, Dec. 1, with the following present:
James Johnston, Nelson; C. S. Hand-
cock, JG. Salt, G. R. Lawes, Enderby;
E. V. BeeBtoti, Nelson; C. A. Cordy,
Summerland; J. L. Vicary, Peachland;
A. E Meigban, Kamloops; C. Erieson,
Malakwa. H. Puckle, Victoria; J.
WilBon, Vernon; \V. B. Robertson,
L. M. Hagar, city; R. Robertson, Vancouver.
Tbe first order of business was the
reading of Ihe financial statement and
general report for the year. The reports were adopted as read, the finances
being in » good shape, taking int ■
consideration the del of the year's
business being less than anticipated
end the lack of capital. The actual
shipments ol Iruit and produce fell Car
short ol the amount estimated, which
was chiefly due to the fact that growers were shipping individually and not
through the exchange. The object of
the meetiug was to discuss and arrange
for a complete reorganization ol tbe
exchange on new lines whereby the
local branches shall be under contract
for their estimates to the head office
and the growers to tbeir respective
local exchanges. It is hoped tbat by
this means tbe liefer financing of the
I business can be done. It was also decided that tbe plans put forward shall
be discussed by llie various local exchangee, who will make their reports
at the general annual meeting to be
: held in Revelstoke on February 1 aud
2. 19(11). It was also decided tbat during the heavy shipping season one ol
tbe bead office stall' shall locate t n
tbe prairies and look alter the interests
of the growers.
The question ol better express and
freight rates on H. C. fruit will be discussed at tbe geueral annual meeting
in February.
The year's business was discussed
and tbe heavy falling off in actual
• ueiness done from what was estimated created considerable argument.
Tbe lollowing is the list ol ship
ments lor the year: 171 car shipments
of Iruit and produce, 703 cases ol
rhubarb, 14,628 cases strawberries,
1,607 rascf raspberries, 1,585 cases
blackberries, !l,248 esses plums, 14,874
cases apples, 1,2.'I7 cases pears, 119
easel tpiinces. 27 casus apricots, H5H
esses crab apple*, 3,837 cases prunes,
55 rases ljOgan berries, 9,37G cases
peaches, 3,5611 lbs. gooseberries, 7,992
lbs. currants. 33,983 lbs. cherries, 13
cars nl mixed vegetables, 83 cars hay,
21 cars potatoes, 1 car canned goods.
A large quantity <>l small shipments
were alio made.
RECREATION GROUNDS
At End of McKenzie Avenue Are
Greatly Improved
Few people at this time of tbe year
take it into their heads to walk up to
the recreation grounds at the soutb
end of McKenzie avenue, but a visit to
that locality will well repay any
trouble. Great and marked improvements have been made by the city
authorities ou these grounds, which,
without exception, we believe to be
one of the finest and best situated of
auy in the province. The arrangement of the grounds has been considerably changed by new surveys, the
whole having been finely levelled and
enclosed by a substantial wire fence.
A fine open, Bwelping approach leads
up to tbe entrance, and trees have
been planted at short spaces round
the entire ground with the exception
ol the west end overlooking the Columbia, Irom which a superb view ol
Revelstoke, the Eagle and Jordon
passes, aud the range ol hills to the
north and west, besides the stately
pile of Mts. Begbie und McArtbur
towering away to the south, can be
obtained. The grounds contain a
spaciout, lacrosse, baseball, football
and athletic sport arena, at one end ol
which is a 100 yard sprinting path
laid out and measured, whilj round
the whole is a line running track a
tilth of a mile round. The grand
stand has been moved to a more
central position and inside the fence,
and will before next summer receive
additional repairs and improvements,
At tbe lower end of the grounds is a
depression where children can play
and bave tbeir games uninteiruptcd
by any thing that .may be going on
on tbe upper ground. We understand that it is the intention of the
civic authorities to arrange for swings
and other forms of amusement for
children. Tho money put into these
grounds ior the benefit of the public
baa been well spent, and Revelatoke
now possesses as good an athletic field
ae any city iu B. C. Such improvements lor the beautifying ol tbe city
are moat commendable and the policy
ol tbe city council in carrying them
out ia a wise and laudable one.
Enterprising
The 'management ol the Edison
Parlor Theatre is contemplating still
further improving what is already u

vaiied and ever changing moving
