Mr.  F.W.  L*lng returned  Saturday
to his school at Whatshan.
Revelstoke,  B.C.,  Jan 7th,  1914.
Editor Mail-Herald:—
Sir,—Is it possible that the outgoing
city council are going to disregard thj
time-honored custom of holding a
public mass meeting of the ratepayers
and duscussmy civ i.- affairs. In Nels'on
and nil the surrounding cities, when
election- arc Being held, meetings of
this kind are called.
I would suggest that the Mayor call
a meoiingof ratepayers st once, anl
that every ratepayer have an oppor -
lunity of speaking. There is no reason for acting In a hole and corner man
n er.
Yours for Publicity,
A  Ward Two Ratepayer.
NOVEL PLAN
Jo   Convert   Drunkards
A unique method of converting the
habitual drunkard has been tried oy
Alderman Vernon Wragge of York, a
former lord mayor oi that historic city
Last year he made an offer to twenty
drunkards of Y'orU, whoso records aggregated '-'(Hi convictions in Ihree years
that he would give each £1 if they were
pot convicted of drunkenness during
1913.
Only seven of the twenty fulfilled
the conditions Of the others one was
convicted six times and throe others
were convicted three times, throe
twice anil six once. These will bo
given an opportunity ot reociving tho
reward during V.II4. The seven who
kept the pledge in 1913 were enter-
mined at tea by Mr. Wragge anil
each presented with a bank book
showing a deposit to the.r credit of
.€1 and were told that if they continued lo be sober Mr. Wragge would
add 2")per cent, to whatever the balance might be next year. The thirteen sovereigns which were not won
were handed over to the local hospitals, and it was announced that any
of the sovereigns which are not won
in 1911 will 1« divided among the
winners for 1913.
AMI
As will  bo
iiu'iit. iu  another  column, Aid,   McKinnon has decided to stand for election
I a- Mayor for 1914. We heartily con-
gratulate Aid. McKinnon upon boine
the first candidate to declare himself
and to step out of ihe ran Us of probables and possibles and openly state
hi- position, convictions aii-l intention-i
| Seen in connection with the mattoc
of bis announced candidature, Aid. McKinnon said In had arrived al Ibis dc-
tisioii after careful consideration; in
view of Ihe widely expressed desire
that he should oiler himself for election
as Mayor.
Imited io give an oxpre don of his
views concerning Municipal matters,
Aid. McKinnon referred the Inquirer
to his official election notice, which
appears  els'ewliere.
"I hope," he continued, "that the
citizens will electa council the members of which will act in the -. ral Interest regardless of hurling private feel
irnr-. and uninfluenced by private schemes and differences between cliques.
"I iliinli that the city bylaws should
be revised with the object of giving everyone an equal chance, and fair treatment. From my experience as Alderman I cannot doubt thai there have
been ease- in the past in which hard-
ship haJ been Inflicted because of tho tin
equal operation of bylaws.
"I regret very much that the whole
school board is going out of office simultaneously at this period, as 1 consider ilia1 one of Ihe heaviest burdens upon ratepayers at the present time is
that in connection with the education
oi their children Whilst in no way
opposed to adequate provision for the
legitimate needs of education being
made I think it will require careful financing to enable the -evenue provided
for that purpose lo cover the expenditure, which has heen for some time
passed and which must be in the near
future a rapidly growing cxpen liture.
Inihi- connection I may say ihat the
expense of education locally will be
largely increased by the equipment and
Btaf!iing, to say nothing of maintenance, of the new high school. This
additional expense will forma considerable portion of the problem of ways
and means in regard to our schools
nevt year. The openinir of the new
high school will inevitably mean increased cost and this question is
hound lo loom large In local affairs In
the very near future.
"I hope that the Board of Trade and
the city council will be able to get together on some scheme for street im-
provement. I consider that street
improvement, especially in the busi -
ins- district, is .me of the most important essentials to progress, which
no on.- .-an deny that at present many
of our thoroughfares are an eye sore
to everyone.
"I think that the Mayor should have
regular Hours of attendan'-c at the
ciiy offices, so as to be readily
iblo to latep.iycr-' who may de-ire
to voice grievances or make helpful sug
geslions. In that way grievance- could
he promptly inv'stigated, and if well
founded, remedied. If elected arf Mayor that will he ,,ne of th.- first things
I shall give attention  lo.
"As lo my residence in town. well
everyone knows  me."
MR. W. I. BRIGGS.
I..i     this morning we- learned that
Mr. William Irving Briggi has entered
the contest for the position ol Mayor.
Thai he is in real earnest and ihat he

PUBLIC MEETING.
During  the service in   the   Methodist
< n ir b on Si.n.lay the Rev. La-hlcy
Ha!i. said ihat in the event of a public
i being called he would i>- gla 1
of the opportunity to bring one or
i w,i matters forward connect.-d with
public affairs in  the  town.
We
MR. F. H. BOURN0.
are  informed      that  Mr.   F. H.
Ii i- thought that the greatest t le*-
cope in the world will be cre.-t.-dliy the
Oana ban government somewhere In
this province. British Columbia offers
every v arictx of atmo-pher. Conditio!'-

Bourne was waited upon by a body <:
business men, requesting him to allow
his name to be placed before tho elect-
orate for the office of Mayor for the
c ominc/ year, the committoe stating
that the desirability of a man who had
large interests at stake, for this important office, was very evident, especially at this time when common
sense and caution nre the chief attri
butes requisite.
Mr. Bourne thanked the committee,
and Mated Ihat before deciding upon

don't know whether the council will
take my word oi Mr. Sibbald's," he
went on. speaking wiih vehemence,"but

SCHOOL YEAR
The school year ending June 80th,
1018,  was  probably   the  most  gucoess-
I till year in the history oi education In
this province. The lotal enrollment in
all tho colleges and schools was    5 ,-
[iiiis. an Increase "I   7-186 over thai  ol
jtlu- previous sear.
| "I I ih I lie largest yearly increase
since the establishment "I 'I"' public
n-hool system In 1872," saya Dr, Alexander Roblnsou, superintendent ol
education.
Tin' percentage   of   regular   at ten
dance it  al-"     most  gratifying, bring
75.12, tin     highest in   the history ol
our publio ii-hoolsl
The cost lo the Provincial govern -
nii-iit of education proper for the year
vtas 11,082,038.00. During ihe same
period the department   ol works   cx-
| en led   un   new   buildings   and   i.n    re-
l aira to old schools the sum ol 9630,-
9(11.71, niakine,' a total cost to tho
Provincial government lor education
of th- sum c.f $1,663,008.31. In addi-
lion to this amount the incorporated
cities, rural municipalities Knil other
school districts spent the sum of $2,-
99S.s9l.68, making th' grand total
ecisi of education the very large sura
of 84.658,801.94.
NEW YEAR'S
HONOR LIST
The New Year's honor list is not
notably interesting. The editor of
Punch become- sir Owen Seaman, and
Sir Alfred Hannsworth becomes a. peer
We congratulate Sir Uwcn upon being
innliled thus to add lustre to the kni-
yhily roll. The new peer is a gentleman who is very largely identified with
British Columbia, where he has mndu
extensive investments. He is an admirable .specimen of tho enterprising
Britisher, and we hope be may long
i njoj his new honors. Oapt. Halsey of
11 MS. New Zealand becomes a CM.
ti. This is a case of deserved recognition, and it might have been more con.
spicuous without excoeding what is due
ii- r-ci-ei-n:. Capt. Halsey has only
lately completed what may well be regarded as .in era-marking imperial voy-
ii.'.-.

did nut intend to seek rtl-i'lection.
The Bylaws upon which ratepayer!
nre asked to vote on January lfith,
raise some important I'Oinls lor oon -
sidei'atilon. As we intimated was' prob
aide in a former mention of the mil>-
jt'c-L the oouncil has wisely separated
tin- two Bets of Institutions affected,
and issued notices separately wiih reference to the churches and the Y.M.O.
A>, Although imi strictly speakiug .1
church tho Y.M.C.A. has claims lor
consideration which In tho opinion ol
uiiiuy are quite as strong n-'the claims
of tho respective local branohog of various churches. The grouping of the
churches and the Y.M.C.A, together
would have complicated tho iitoue nnd
rendered itio obtaining ol o direct cx-
prossion of opinion ,-ilinont impossible.
Tho matter arose as the result of tho
representations lo tho council some
timo ago of a committee chosen to put
tho case for ihe churchos before the local authority, nnd the council cannot
bo blamed for seeking to ascertain tha
views of ratepayers generally upon the
proposal, The exemption ol ohurohes
from assessment for taxation other
than local Improvements rates is noi
so simple ,-iiuatti'i as miulit at lirst
sight appear, because of the fact that
it is difficult I,, define church premises
or premises used for church purposes.
In soma casus the residence! of ministers adjourn the church proper and may
justly be clc.iiiii-il pari of ihe church buildings, but in others the buildings are
spread over different lots whioh are
not adjoining. In order to test the
views of   our   readers   ,111 I he   sub-ool  we

The   regular  fortnightly   meeting    of,

evening    at    the home of Mr.  Walter
llews.   A  shangc from   the  usual   pio
gram wus   antioiuiced for   this   meeting
as the club bud completed the .sludy  u
"King   Lear," u.  varied   list of   topics
was chosen for papers and discussiouj
A highly entertaining evening resulted
which was   unanimously pronounced thi
"best yet."    Five papers were read Mr.
Barrie  leading with a  splendid    essay
en Shakespeare.   Critics had been   up- I
pointed to   lead the  discussion of  each
paper,   Mil Barrio's was reviewed   oy
Mr.   L.V.   Wood.   A  pa|>er on  "Mark
Antony"  was a literary treat at     the.
hands of Mr. Colpitts.   Much time ant
thought were evidenced in  the preparation of  this essay and much animated
discussion followed, lod  by Mr. .Wilson.

enjoyed by     the club for a couple     of
hours an essay on  "Scottish Wit   ant
Humor"  by Mr.  Gordon, principal of

of laughter, which Mr.  W.M. Lawrene?a
db critic continued in his usual happy
style.   After this it was almost decided to  hold a "Burn's  Night"    at   the
