Mayeir McKinnon presided at a
meeting of the city council held on
Friday night, when there were also
present Aldermen McSorley, Needham
Bourne, Dell, Smythe and Pradolini
with the city olerk(Mr. W.A. Gordon)
The report re thc tire escapes act,
previously  published  was discussed.
Aid. Dell—It is a serious     matter.
lf  we had an  hotel  tire aud two or
three  people  were  burned  to     death
because there was no  tire escape,    It
would  be a Berious matter.
Aid. Bourne—The city would he
Aid. Smythe—Take the City hotel
Aid. McSorley said he considered it
good business to put a good rope in
every floor of a building. There was
not much chance of anyone being
burned t<» death then.
Aid. Smythe said hotels generally did not like ropes as it waa rlaim
ed that tluy enabled people to JU'.up
their board, or to haDt. themw.Vt a,
They should keep iu touch with ' he
new legislation on the subject /it
the same time he thoug.it Hey
Bhould instruct thc Chief of Police te>
go after those hotels which had no
fire escapes  right away.
Thc Mayor said some hotels had
escapes but they did not comply with
the act. The RevelBtoke hotel had
escapes which did not comply With
the act.
Aid. Smythe—I should say de il
first with those people who have no
fire escapes.
Aid. Needham—How are you going
to draw  the line?
Aid. Smythe—Some notels have escapes and some have none.
Aid. Dell said if they made people
comply with the law the council was
clear. If a lire OCCUrrud and anyone
was burned to death and there was
no escape the council might he censured.
■Aid.  Smythe—Sure.
The Mayor said those not acquaint
ed with tbe act would be surprised
to find how strict it was. It might
be advisable to refer the matter to
thc Bylaw Committee to let mem
litis  get  posted on  the subject.
Aid. Needham thought it would he
a good idea to let thc Chief of Police draw up a sketch as a guide to
hotel keepers who were not now com
plying  with  the act.
Aid. Dell said all that was necessary was to see that hotels which
had no fire escape Bhould provide
adequate escapeB. If the Chief of
Police was instructed to do that and
the hotel keepers did not comply the
council could take action. The Chief
of Police should be instructed what
to do.
The Mayor said one case was specified where there was a good escape
though it was not quite in compli -
"mice  with the act.
Aid. Dell said ull that was wanted wus a good fire escape.
Aid. McSorley said there were num
crous fire cscupes which did not comply with the exact terms of the act.
Aid. Smythe said that was a different, thing to having no escape at
all. There was no excuse for two ho
telB having no fire escape at all aB
appeared from the report.
Aid. Dell said tbe Chief of Police
knew what was wanted. If an adequate escape wub put in that would
be satisfactory. A good escape, even if not in exact compliance with
the terms ofact, would be satisfactory.
Aid. Smythe thought the Chief of
Police should be instructed to    have

Aid. Bell thought. ". good escape
Should  not be interfered  with. ,
Aid. Needham—One hotel has an escape, one has none, and another has
a wooden ladder.
Aid. Smythe—All hotels should
have a fire escupe.
Aid. Needham moved that the po -
lice should be instructed tei see that
all buildings coming under the Act
Bhould  he provided with fire escapes.
All  Bell seconded.
Aid. Smythe said it was not right
that hotels should be allowed to do
business if they  had no fire escape.
The motion was carried.
It was decided that tne work of
reading meters in future be handed
over to the department of the Supt.
eif electric  light and power.
Applications for the position of
stenographer ami bookkeeper in thc
city  office  were  read.
After discussion the appointment
was left in the hands of the Mayor
and  city clerk.
Aid. Ne'eilham asked for informa -
tion about the assessment last year.
The Mayeir explained that at the
beginning eif last year the council
decided not to raise the assessment,
but to equalise it. Later the matter
was brought up again and it waa
agreed that the assessment should be
raised. There was a difference of op-
Inlon and tbe then city clerk was appointed assessor. In view of circumstances which arose later the council
called in Mr. Field as assessor. That
in  brief, was thc cxplantion.
Aid. McSorley and Aid. Bourne
corroborated the Mayor's explanation.
Aid. McSorley stating that the matter had drifted on un,til so late in
the year that action had to be taken in the end on thc lines indicated
hy the Mayor.
Thc Mayor saie! they had to have
an assessor. The city clerk could be
appointed to the position unless tbey
were geiing to change values. Thoy
could not very well lower the assessment as they had debentures out, but
there might he readjustment neces -
sary In isolated cases to make the
assessment equitable.
Aid. Ne-edham—Any injustice cuu be
The Mayor—Certainly we shall be
only too pleased to stiaighten out
anything thut needs attention.
Aid. McSorley moved that the city
clerk  be  appointed  assessor.
Aid. McSorley said there must be
a court ed revision when matters of
elctail could  be gone into.
Aid. Needham Beconded and thc mo
tion  was carried.
The matter of a grant to the forth
coming teachers convention to bo
liclil in Kevelstoke was brought for -
ward by the Mayor. If the money
was to be voted he said it would:be
required before the date of the convention.
Aid. Dell said it appeared that
there was B precedent Ior the voting
of such grants. That being so, he
would move a grant of $H11 be voted for thc purpose, though he was
not personally in favor of It.
Aid. Smythe seconded and the mo.
tion  was  greed  to.
Aid. Bourne said representations
had been made to him in regard to
the acquiring by tbe council of a
dumping wagon for use in road work
and lf thev got a new wagon as appeared to be necessary they might
aB well get a proper dumping wagon
which would effect a saving in '.ime
and prove much more useful than an
ordinary type of wagon for such work
Aid. McSorley said this matter was
raised last year, but was left over
It wub derided that tbe Public Works
committee  should  go  into the matter.
Aid. Needham asked bow many tele
plumes were in use by thc city.
The Muyor said this question had
been gone into and thc number of
telephones used by the city cut down
whilst such officials has had tele -
phones had received an increse in Bal
ary to cover the cost of same and
the free telephone thus done away
wiih. At present the city used six
Apropos of the sehool board estimates, which were mentioned at the
last meeting,
Aid. Needham said it was all right
Ior the board to come along With
estimates which meant a rise in the
rate, but it was a serious proposition.
Aid. Smythe—The council gets the
blame of  it.
Aid. Needham said it was stated
last year that the new high school
was uot geiing to cost any more and
that the same janitor would be employed as before. Now the board was
paying 3S0 per month for a janitor
for the new school. They had u man
at 8411 but he did not hold thc certili
cute necessary to have charge of a
boiler and they had to get a man
with a certificate and pay him $*0.
Aid. Pradolini—That is in accord -
mice with the law.
Aid. Needham—But it is not according to law that they have to put
that kind of a boiler in a school.
Tbe Mayor said it was n pity that
some- people? did not see things last
year when  be did.
Aid. Needham—I saw it but what
could we do.
Aid. Smythe suid it was thc same
in regard to the police and the council bad to take the blame although
they could do nothing hut sit still
with their hands folded. It was the
same with the schools, they just sat
and  iooked wise.
Aid. Hell—If you have any recom-
mendatlons to give the police com-
mlBSloners this is the place.
A ei,   Smvthe—Will you accept them
Alel. Needham—We will give them
Aid. Smythe—The first la regarding
the hack stand opposite the Windsor
b itel. Daj and night it is used tor
taking people down to lower town.
It is a disgrace to the town. There
is a ; lie of r.'fus:' there and no one
opens their mouth. It is up to the
polic to attend to that and I hope
the next meeting of the commissioners you will do something.
Aid. Pradolini thought some of thc
s; i ii is  should  lie  washed  out.
Aid. Smythe (who h..d a Pig sheet
of paper before him which be had
been referring to)—I think you bave
been looking over my paper of complaints Aid. Pcadollni. Loud laughter).
Aid.  Pradolini—What ?
Aid, Smythe'—T haven list of complaints here which I wus to bring up.
I was talking to Md. Bell and Aid.
Pradolini has read my •list. I have
it down here that some of the streets
are in a very bad state with water
running over thc sidewalks and taking down the filth which has accumulated during the winter into the
main streets. I think the city hoBO
should be used ns soon as possible ,
and tbe streets washed down as soon
as the water can be got away.
Aid. Pradolini —1 did not mention
that,   i Laughter),
Aid. Smythe said there was a lot
of dirt and filth em the side eif the
streets, coal dust and tilth, which
should be cleared away.
Aid. Pradolini said water was
standing  in some streets.
Aid.   Bourne said  water  wan  running out of  the street  into thc    post
office.   The   men   were   kept   running
from one place to another in answer
to requests on the telephone.
Aid. Smythe said he had only called In the road men once, and that
was in a case where water was running into a cellar. Opposite the telegraph office water was going under
the sidewalk.
Aid. Bourne said the prisoners
were not doing the work they should
Aid. Pradolini said they could not
expect much work from prisonerB,
who were only weirking to pass the
time  away.
Aid. Be>urne Baiel operations on the
streets had been cut down In response to n request, that committees
should curtail expense us much as
possible. The prisoners did very little  work  too.
Aid.  Smvthe Bald he had three feet
of water  in his cellar.
Aid.  Bourne said they might      be
able to  get   along   without  spending
money hy utilising prison work only.
Aid. Smythe—'ihey have done a lot
of good work in tbe streets.
Aid.   Bourne—Very  necessary   work.
The Mayor—Anything else Aid.
Aid. Smythe (ostentatiously con -
suiting his paper turned at an angleto
prevent Aid, Pradolini reading ita
contents)—I was going ou when I
was interrupted.
Aid. Pradolini—We try to do the
best  we can.
Aid.  Smythe—And he saw  my list.
1   wish  to pass a vote of thanks   to
the commissioners for    tuking       the
stand they did in having certain people brought up leer selling  liquor out
side licensed  hours and  on  Sundays.
This business bus  been  geiing  em for
a considerable time and no one seems
to have had the pluck to have these
people  pulled.    It   makes an  example
for all  the hotels  in  the  town  when
people    are stopped     from     selling
booze just when they think fit, which
some  people  made a  practice  of, aud
I think  it is  up to the council       to
pass a  vote of thanks to the     commissioners. The       commissioners
slum Id  deal   with  this sort of  thing
in a stronger manner and cancel   the
licenses eif offenders and put    a stop
to it.   There are hotels which I   am
pretty  sure  are living up to the law
and it is not fair to them that others should sell  booze any time   they
want to.   We have two commission -
ers here.   1 should like someone    to
puss a  few  remarks on  this subject ,
you for instance Aid.  Pradolini.
Aid.  Pradolini—1  may.
Aid. Bourne—You don't play the
band on Sundays. I think Sunday
just as good as week days. Is it against the law  on Sundays?
Aid. Needham—It depends what you
Aid. Bourne—If you play sentiment
al  airs.
Aid. Pradolini—Is there law against it'.'
Aid. Bourne—They do it in other
Aid. Pradolini said he would like
to see something doing on Sundays,
nice music uud concerts would be a
good   thing Ior Sundays.
Aid. - mythe—I will open the picture show on Sundays by conseut of
the council.
Aid. Pradolini—That Is work but a
concert  is not  work.
Aid. Smythe—You mean the Italian
Alel. Needham—That is work.
Aid. Pradolini—With thc band it is
not a question of work.
Aid. McSorley—1 would not inter -
fere with the idea of giving a free
show  on  Sundays.
Aid. Smvthe—I wouid be einly too
willing to amuse' you and the citizens.
Aid. Needham I don't think it fair
thai Aid. Smythe should congratulate the Commissioners on closing up
a man right opposite him and at the
same time ask permission to open
his picture show em  Sundays.
Aid. Smythe—Its a joke. Picture
shows are prohibited iron. opening
on  Sundays under the Act.
The Mayor said iu regard to noone
having pluck to close hotels on Sundays, it was just a matter of the
commissioners doing their duty.
Aid. Smythfl said there were tie-
cent heitels which abided by the law
all the time and there were dumps
which elid not. Some hotels in the
town could not he called anything
but dumps. Every week twee or three
times fighting went on in the street
only a night or two ago a lady rushed Into his theatre and asked him to
telephone for the police as two men
wire fighting on the sidewalk and in,-
policeman was in sight.
Aid. Pradolini said there wub another pednt in connection with that.
When a man wan drunk was a bar -
tender or hotclkecpcr allowed to sup
ply him  with drink?
Aid. Smythe—It is absolutely ug-
ainst the act.
Aid. Pradolini—Is there any control over it. Tbey should uot give
men drink when they are drunk. In
the streets they saw men drunk taking up thc whole sidewalk just rolling from one bar to another. That
should   be  stopped.
Aid. Smythe said it bad the custom In the past to supply men who
were drunk with booze and to allow
them to go into the street and fight.
That should be stopped, there should
be some way of stopping that. In
fact he was going to harp on the
question every meeting until It was
stopped lf he could stop It.
i The Mayor said any member of the
council was perfectly justified in brin-
Tributes to Hon. W. R. Ross's Measure
(Continued on P-E* 7.)
Widespread interest bus been shown
in the Timber Royalty bill introduced by the Hon. W.H. Ross, Minister
of Lands. Newspapers all over the
American continent and many in the
United Kingdom published despatches in which a feature was made of
the recognition of tbe profit-sharing
principle in handling public timber
The New  York  paper in a  lengthy
editorial  under the  caption of  "Profits  for Governments"  complimented
the Hem.  Mr.  Ross on the idea. The
New York paper saia:
"The British Columbia Minister of
lands last week intro duced a     bill
providing   for a   government   regula -
tion of prices on     lumber from    the
public property,  and  fixing the roy -
alties to be paid by     those working
the timber lands in  proportion to the
prices.   The lumbermen are said    to
approve the idea,     and the govern -
ment expects     eventually to get $2,-
"'O.iXlO  annually,   while  retaining  the
land from which the timber is taken.
"It is singular that tbe idea of associating prices and profits from the
proceeds of public resources has been
so tardy in arriving. Hitherto the
problem has been attacked from the
point of reducing the excess of profits of such exploitation by taxation.
That only makes the ptoduct more
costly to the consumer, without re -
ducing the profit to the exploiter.
"It is not too late to profit from
tbe example of Canada."
"Praise for Mr. Ross and thc new
royalties," is the he-ad under which
Beveral newspapers reprint uu editorial from the Mail aud Empire of To-
Lonto referring lu the new bill in
troduced hy tbe Minister of Lands.
The Toronto Mail und Empire says
—"The magnificent forest areas of
British Columbia are a heritage the
people of that province ought to watch over most carefully. Few provinces or stutcs are bo bountifully cn-
endowed. The timber should be regarded, us far as practicable, as a
trust to be administered for tha general benefit, not mainly as .iffo
opportunity for privileged cxpl lit i -
tion. Because, perhaps, thc timber
resources of the continent have teen
thought Inexhaustible—a saelly mis -
taken view—this principle has uever
properly Imbedded Itself—asa matter
of cardinal pedicy—in the public
mind, either in the l'nited Status er
Canada. The output from public
eu- Crown lands under lease has been
taxed by tbe several governments,
but without uny restrictions upon
tbe price charged. The consequence
has been naturally, that thc users of
lumber have had to pay the government tuxes and there has been no
regulation of the extent to which the
public, the owner of the leased lirr-
its, could be held feir its own prop -
"Tbe government of British Colum
bia, which has been forcmoBt in forestry regulation, has taken a stand
on this matter deserving of the warm
est commendation. It is readjusting
thc terms of royalty upon which leases are granted. In making substantial increases in the amounts due to
the government it is also undertaking to regulate the lumber prices.
The scheme covers eight periods ed
live years each, the royalties being
on a sliding scale. The principle up-
ini which the measure, which buB
been laid before thc legislature by
thc Minister of Lands, is bnsed is
that of profit-sharing by the government in the exploitation of the timber. It proposes to obtain for the
provincial treasury part of the regulated value of thc timber without
permitting the amount thus diverted
from the pockets of thc timbermen
to be tnken out of the lumber consumers. That is thc true basis of
forest administration."
"Public will come in on thc unearn
eel increment." is the title in red letters across a  two-column-wide editorial on the front page of the Vancouver World,  over the signature   of
the  Managing-Editor,  Mr.  L.D.  Taylor.   He wrote as follows:
1    "The Timber Royalty Bill, as    ex-
I pounded by the Hon. Mr. Ross, Min-
' iBter of Lands, is a measure  to which
commendation will be readily extended by all British Columbians. Public intelligence all over the Dominion
is quickening to the recognition of
the fact that the natural resources
of thc country ought to be exploited
as natural resources, aud, as such,
the property of the people, through
the Crown, under conditions which
will not be burdensome to particular
industries. Mr. Ross claimed that
the fundamental principle of the bill
is its recognition of the profit-mak -
ing principle, the profits being shared by the holders of timberlauds
with the government fri m which they
hold them; in other words, thc right
of the people of British Columbia to
share in the prosperity of thc lumber
industry while at the same time giving to that industry reasonable stability of tenure. In compliance with
these two principles, claims Mr. Ross
the bill has been framed.
"It is possible of course-, that the
bill will fall to meet with the approval of some lumbermen, but bay
grievances which might he advauced
by tbos..' actively engaged In the lumbering business will be regarded by
the general public as being fairly
met in the bill. It is merely a measure to protect the interest of the peo
pie as.the owners of tlra ■ r -
ties. The portions of the revenue
which it exacts for the pei pie is mere
ly in   the  nature-  -. :   .
"No one questions the fact that
profits by the lumbermen ware not
great     during thi .tr; rather
with the majority of those engaged
in th    buBine is  was iti in ot
breaking even, it is not true, however, to say that during the past
year the mills were kept g ill g for
the  benefit of the men emploj in
tin m.     British I' iluml ti   '•
measure  up  well  against other
ness men, hut it  is too much to    expect any body of     business men    to
keep a concern  going   without      any
regard for their business or for them
selves,  and merely  for the benefit   of
the     men    they employ.   Ti.
been years in which  much money has
been made in the  lumber business in
the province, and there ...11 ben
more.    For the lumber Companies    in
British Columbia to have closed down
merely because the market conditions
during the past  year made the making ed lai -  anywhere      im -
possible,  would  have  been  for  them
to have dealt  a serious blow ut      au
industry  in  which   they  arc   primarily Interested.   Let    t     be   conceded
that business was kept  going for the
sake    of the   busln ss,   The business
has yielded   good profits   and   much
employment     during quite a number
of years.   With     the passing of this
bill, not only timber owners and mill
workers, and     men of    the logging
camps are interested,   but the people
of British Columbia as a whole,
"Government revenue from lumber
will Increase with a    ion
ket. As the profits of the active part
ners increase, so will the share of tbe
silent partners- tbe government, the
people. Other natural resources are
exhaustible; the forests can be rend
e-rcd permanently  productive.

A wierd talc of Canada's Far Northland is the recital ol the advent -
ures of Sergeant C.S. Harper, of the
Mounted Police, who led a patrol in
pursuit of Asa Hunter, a trapper,
who abducted a nfteen-year-old girl
named Mildred Shaw and lied from
Lake Shaskatoon into the wilderness
The full report of the chase has
heen received at headquarters of the
Mounted Police. The patrol started
on November I, and over six weeks
were required to reach the spot where
the man and girl were found. The
journey whb one full of hardships,
Climbing mountains wading ice-cold
Streams, forced to carry all supplies
with animals dying by the way or
fulling   over  cliffs.
The tracks of the man and the girl
Were discovered  on  December  S,    and
led over the mountains to Grand
Cache, a   trading   post In  the   main
range of the Rockies. About December il the patrol had no food left but
sugar. A cache of dried meat discovered by a halfbreed was the food
supply until December 1-. Two days
later Grand Cache was reached, tbe
Smoky river being waded three times
with water to the waist that froze
When   the  Camp   of   Hunting      was
reached he was away at bis traps and
the girl was alone. He was arrested
as soon as he returned, and the return journey began. The pair had
been living largely on rabbits during their long trudge into the wilderness. The return journey to civilization was one constant light, against the elements and against hunger.
Constable Cornelius, who led the party that went out to search for Harper, says:
"1 went up to meet them, but did
uot recognize Bergeant Harper at all
—he bad fallen  away so much."
The r.'purt  which  has been received
Im iv  gives  Bpedal credit to the constables  who did their  duty  like men
iu the fare of  the  moet terrible  privations and difficulties.

"Windy" Alderman Smythe waa easily the wordy hero
of Friday's Council meeting. He commenced hy an attack
upon certain public vehicles which he asserted were used
solely for running people down to the Lower Town, made
some scathing, well-merited comments upon the facts revealed
by the report of the Chief of Police an' nt the hick of tire
escapes in connection with certain buildings, and feeding upon
his own eloquence, proceeded to slate all and sundry, as will
be apparent from our report of the proceedings, though his
language has, at his own request, been moderated therein.
He characterized some barmen in the city as nothing else than
pimps. A point he was esf ecially strong on was that the
council should keep in touch with legislation at present before
the House at Victoria concerning the Fire Escape Act. We
would surest that to be consistent he should make a point of
keeping in touch with lewislation also before the House at
Victoria at present which deals stringently with the matter of
the admission of young children, unaccompanied by adults, to
picture shows at evening performances. He might also,
whilst agitating on the important subject of fire escapes, see
to it that the stairs and gangways at his picture theatre are
kept clear, which was n it the case on Monday night at any
raie. He should not allow his natural inclination to make
money to lead to the crow.ling of wh it wo_ld be means of exit
from the theatre in case of fire or panic. We quite agree
with Aid. S:nythe's remarks about the necessity of hotels
being provided with efficient fire escapes. Fires and panics
in hotels are dreadful events, almost as horrible as similar
occurrences in picture shows. As to the references to vehicles trading to lower town, we suppose the inference intended
to he drawn is that the passengers go to admire the beauties
along the river bank. If thsre is good reason why they
should nut do so why not attend to the scenery along the
banks of the river ? which is very pleasing on one side at any
rate, rather than blame hack drivers who journey in that direction. We appreciate Aid. Smythe's zeal, and would like
to see it properly directed. Ai to the charges of liquor selling,
offenders in that connection deserve the pumshme.it inflicted upon conviction, ALL offenders.

"The Only Wuy," as most people
know, is a dramatization of Dickens'
famous novel, 'A Tale of Two (lit -
ies," dealing with tbe thrilling times
of the French revolution. Mr. Harvey bus the role eif tbe disseilutc barrister, Sidney Oarton, whose noble
sacrifice in going tei the guillotine to
save tbe life eif bis rival in love, und
he bus made of it a classic which is
beloved by the British public almost
more than any other role now played on the stage.
"The Breed of the Treshams"     is
I another stirring drama, cast  In    tho
[period of Cromweliian eluys. "Reresby the Rat", thu hero, played by
Mr. Harvey, is another character
whose   loveable   traits  have  won     a
I warm place in the hearts of tbe English  people.   Mr.  Harvey bus    made
i of it a success second only to that
of Sidney Carton.   Indeed, in tbe op-
' inion  eif  many  eif the leading  English
I dramatic critics, it is the best of his
romantic roleR.
Tbe either play is a dramatization
of the popular novel by the late Marion Crawford, "A Cigarette Maker's
Romance;" Most people know the
story of the Polish nobleman who
has lost bis memory, and who has
been robbed of his inheritance by u
scheming kinsman. His gradual recovery of his proper senses, and thc
devotion to him during this period of
the poor little cigarette-maker, Vicra
constitute a story of absorbing interest, and one which, in its dram -
atic form, holds the attention of the
audience tense throughout.
Mr.   Harvey  brings  witb  him     his
gifted  wife,  MiBs  N. de  Silva,       and
his entire London     company, nearly
all  the members of which have been
associated with him for many years.
The full  scenic and  other accessories
of the organization have also     been I    MoVing  „ictures of  Thc Hague tri-

would like to have a bylaw prepared
with  any      recommendations, and
brought  in nt     si  future meeting
for consideration und passing.
Aid. .McSorley—What is the object ?
Aid. Bell said the object was ho
that thc council and the commisslou-
ers could have some control over bur
tenders, not necessarily to work bard
sh111. He understood that a lot ol
men who were bartenders were    not
lit to be bartenders and he thought
tbey should huve reliable men in that
position. 11 they were licensed, and
did not do as they should do und
live up to the law ha did not sec why
their licenses should not he taken away from them the same as hotels. Ho
thought hotels often got into trouble
through unsuitable bartenders.
Aid. McSorley said if it was a mat
t r of having control he thought it
could he done through the commls -
sioners. He did not think nny hotel
would want bartenders licensed here.
While he did not want to put anything in the wuy of the suggestion
he did not see how a license would en
able hurtenders to be better handled.
Licensing bartenders would work a
hardship upon hotelkeepers for tbe
reason  thut ut certain  times in   tbe
| day there was very  little to do in a
I bar and there were other times when
two or  three  men  were required.   At
I busy  times a   man  controlling  u   hotel could  put  men  into the bur who
at  times did  other work,  just       the
same as any business man would in
rush times. He did not Bee where licensing was going to benefit unyone
or the authorities in looking after
men in bars. There were many men
employed at times in bars who did
other work, they tended bar for a
while and then took some other job,
in a small town like this men in bars
were not all professional bartenders.
He did not see t .at licensing would
give nny additional control iu a
place like this. An hotel keeper had
control of his barmen and was the
best person to say whether a man
was a fit and proper person to have
as bartender. If a bartender did any
thing objectionable the proprietor
could deal with him. The commie -
sioners controlled hotels and ""could
get satisfaction in that way. Licensing bartenders was all right in large
towns hut thc circumstances were different in smaller places. He did not
see how tbe suggestion would better
the position and it would only mean
another hardship upon hotel proprio
Aid. Smythe thought the sugges -
tion a good one. There had been bar
tenders in Kevelstoke who were most
undesirable characters, and everyone knew it. A bartender held a
very responsible position. If only to
be proficient in mixing drinks for the
public the bartender should  be a
specialist to a certain extent. The
idea beaind the proposal was to stop
doping which had heen done in some
hotels. Men were doped in bars and
then thrown out into the street to
have their faces kicked in or to ho
robbed and their lives endangered.
That was not right and should be
Aid. Bell—That is my idea.
Aid. McSorley—I do not think it is
necessary to license them.
Aid. Pradolini—How could you control them if they were licensed. Anyone might he licensed.
I    Aid.  Needham—Not necessarily,    he
might he refused a license.
Aild. Bell said a license would be
taken away if a barmen was found to
be unsuitable for the work. The idea
was to get a check on men who
would not do the right' thing. Some
hotel keepers did what was right but
others did not and he doubted whether they could make such proprietors change their unsatisfactory bartenders even if tbey tried to do so.
The Mayor said he did not want to
see the council  split on the question
He did not. object to the proposal,
lint I bought Home wuy might he do-
vised of dealing with the question
that would not impose any hardships
The Commissioners might make a
rilling that hotel proprietors should
hiro as barmen rcHpcctahlu mon uud
i in-i, men as the commissioners con -
Hidered us Hiitisfuctory for the position. He did not think there would
be any difficulty if the commissioners
and the hotel proprietors got. togeth
or on the matter, Such a solution
would probably suit both purtles.
Aid. Smythe said there might be
some such wuy of attaining the end
desired by cooperation with thu
commission. The Ohief of Police or
tbe commission might Issue a wnrn-
1 ing which would have a good utfect
Aid. Hell said if it could bo worked in that way he wus agreeable.
The Mayor Huid he was not. opposing the proposal but ruther than
j havo friction between thc cominis -
sioners and the hotel keepers nnd tho
oounoil he would like the mutter so
arranged as not to work hardship on
nny one,
Aid. Hell Certainly, 1 do, not want
to work any hardship, 1 think it is
more a safeguard for hotelkeepers
Aid. Smythe suid if the matter
could be so worked ns to sufeguurd
the hotel keepers he would be only
too willing. He would he willing to
let the matter Stand over Hay for u
month to sec if something could not
be done in that connection on tho
lines suggested. They might ask tho
commissioners to look into things.
Aid. McSorley suid his view wits
and always had been that i bartenders
could be handled by proprietors    of
hotels   without  them   being   licensed,
Aid. lieu said if the hotel keepers
came together the matter might poB-
Sibly  be  handled  in  that.  way.
Aid.  McSorley      said  circumstances
were   different  in a  small   place    like :
this und large towns.
Aid,  Hell  said  there wub  no   position in which thc wrong man could !
do so much harm us in a  bar. Ai
man   in a  bar could  do    more  barm  '
thun   unyone.    It   was  a   very        im -
portant   position to bis way of think
Aid. McSorley said it was an important position and therefore he
liked iu his business to have the
handling  of  it  himself.
Aid. Needham—Why would there not
be control with a license.
Aid. McSorley—it would he iu the
hands of the police or tbe commie -
sioners instead of in the ilinnds ol the
hotel   keeper direct.
Aid. Needham—This would he relieving you of some of your responsibility. ,
Aid. McSorley—You would not be
taking the real responsihilty awuy
us the hotel man would still be responsible for the bartender who bundles his money. The police might cut
some man out of your employ on
some slight pretext.
Aid. Needham—Take the opposite
| view. You may have am an who is
] not doing the right thing according
| to the law. Then with a license you
have control and the police find out.
I it cuts both ways.
Aid. McSorley—But what could a
man be doing for which you could
not denl with him without having
him  licensed?
Aid. Bell     said     one   thing  which
should  be done was to stop the sale
of liquor to men  who hud bud    en - '
Aid. McSorley said the hotel keeper doing a legitimate business had
lots of trouble at present in dealing
with some classes. It was dillicult
sometimes to know when a man was
sober or drunk. A man might walk
Into a bar perfectly all right apparently und have one drink and show j
it immediately.
Aid. Needham said when a man wus
very evidently full he should not be
; served  but  there were  bars     where
such  men  were  served  so  long       as
they had a dollar.
Aid.   McSorley said  there wnB     ab-'
use lu all trades.
Aid. Hell said it was admittedly
a  pretty  bard  thing  to regulate   for
Aid. Pradolini said a policeman
would  be  needed  at every  bar.
/..Id.   Needham—(laughing)—Yes.
Aid. Smythe—It is no laughing ma
ttcr,  wc have made charges.
Aid.   Needham—If     the  suggestion
that wc have not enough     policemen
i is not a   matter  for  laughter I   don't
know what is or what a man      may
laugh nt.
Aid. Bell—They have morn police -
1 men elsewhere?
Aid. Needhnm—What for, to help
men Into a bar.
Aid. Bell—No, to keep order and
see people are not robbed.
Aid.  Hmythe said he had heard   It
i asserted tbat policemen had no pow-
i er to go into a bar unless called in.
: Men had been kicked out, of saloons
drunk and left to fight in the street.
Thut sort of thing should be stopped
There  should  be  a  regulation  that
lf men created a disturbance near   a
; saloon  the saloon  keeper  should   be
obliged     to get thc police to remove
I them  or     be   subject to a    pennlty.

Aid. Smyth)—I am trying to rake

there is Aid.  Bourne saying nothing.
Aid. Bourne—I would like to Bee
the proposed  bylaw first.
Aid. Bell's motion wus put nnd car
ried. Aid. Bell, Needham, 1'radolini
and Bourne voting for it, and Aid.
Smythe and McSorley against.
Aid. Bourne said talking about by-
lawB it would be a good thing if
they hud a building permit bylaw in
a simple form.
It was decided that the bylaw com
mittee should consider this matter.
The Mayor—Anything else Aid.
Aid. Smythe—Yes, about dogs.—
There nre dogs running about this
town that haven't a license, never
had a license and never will have a
license. We should have unlicensed
dogs rounded up as is done elsewhere
There js a bi(f loss through this cause
Aid. Needham—Have you a dog?
Aid. Smythe—No sir, and don't
want one. The spring would be tbe
time to get after them. They could
be caught with a loop on the end of
a pole al they are in some tOWOI,
The ,,wners could be lound und ta:ved
The Mayor thought if instructions
were palled mi to the police this
matter could  be attended  to.
Aid. Smythe moved accordingly.ind
Aid. Pradolini leconded.
Aid. Hell laid in some towns un -
iieeuM'.i dogi wre shot by policemen
Aid. iiee'irne There would be an
awfttl lot of blond ab" it our streets
if that   was done here.
Aid Bell laid it should be made
plain that dog owners would huve to
take nut  licenses ut the city office.
The motion was agreed to.
The Mnyor—Anything else Aid.
Aid. Smvthe— Yes, but no tonight.
The Mayor—Anything you wunt to
bring up Aid.  Pradolini?
Aln. Pradolini—No, this is enough
for one night   (Laughter).
Aid. McSorley made a statement
dealing with what was being done at
the power dam. They were getting
ready to do necessary work aa soon
as conditions permitted of a real
start being made on the problem.
The Mnyor said a party of buslueM
men  bad   inspected  thc  power  plant
that  afternoon  and  appeared  to favor the putting in of a new unit.
Aid. Bell laid the matter should ba
gone into at once.
Aid.   Needham  .-aid this  wus a  new/
Itunt to him.    Previously  all the talk
had been of jogging   along with    the
present plant.
The Mayoi said he Wat only men -
tioning the matter for the informa -
tion of the council. He himself bad
no idea a few weeks ago that it
would become necesaary to put In a
new unit if the demand ou the plant
kept increasing at tbe present rate
something would have to be done aa
the auxiliary plant was incapable of
handling the load now required properly. He waa not in favor of putting
more burdens upon the citi_ens than
could possibly tic helped hut he waa
informing them of the position.
Aid.   Bell  said  it   was  false  ecouo -
my to put a  matter e.il if it was necessary      The  fault  iu  the  past    had
been  thut  deople  never  looked      far
eno'igh uhead.
Aid. Xecdhaiu said he had under -
stood first that the auxiliary a..s
so much junk but lately he had heard
that it bad heen responsible for the
light they had and bad been congratulating himself upon that.
Aid. Bell said the plant was not
equal to the load required at pres -
ent. The light haa been had aud
street lights bad  been cut out.
It wai stated that the vurying of

might Cause serious damage.
