Aid. McSorley—1 ihink this matter
should be taken up properly and a
beginning mad,' witb training children
in school. Children are often thc cause
of much rubbish beiiiL' thrown iu the
streets, paper, old can-, etc. Garbage
tins should be provided in the streets
and ■■hildren taught at Bchool to nee
them  instead ot  throwing  i iibbish    in
tlle   -'Heels.
The .Mayor—It would certainly   be*
greal   improvement.
Aid. McSorley—Rubbish is thrown
in behind fences and in alleys; lbe
streets arc treated as a garbage heap
at present.
FENCING  ACCOUNT.
The Mayor brought forward " thc
vexed question of the fence which Mr.
Lewis wa- to erect in torms of nn agreement wild  tlie council.'*
He had seen Lewis ihat day and ho
wanted payment feu- his work.
Aid.  MeKinnon -I   move   that   if   ihe
wire. The' fence i.s not roded. It appears there was something obottt four
wire- arranged with 'he council.
Aid. MeKinnon—Hc said he would
put up a four wire fence. I spoke to
him about there only being three wires
nml he Said he would put up another
wire if the council wanted it.
The Mayor—It does not look as if
it Was originally intended to put Up
more than three wires. 1 think we
should clear this  matter up.
The- Oity Solicitor, in reply to qtter-   tnjs ;s  ,|u,
ies as to  the leg-nl  position,  said  Lewis  had  agr I that   ther.'  should  be    a
highway there now and the council
Would   nut   have to  foui-e   the property.
Aid. Howson seconded  the motion.
whicli was carried.
AUDITOR'S REPORT.
disputed amounts are     only amounts   en out of books here.
Th" acting city elerk stated that the
auditor was now in the cily, and his
report   available.
Al.l. MeKinnon—The auditor told me
he' would have a full statement regarding tb.' e'X-i ity clerk's finances for thc
Ceiune-.il t.iiiight. As to the delay iii
work has been done to the satisfaction the audit he said thc reason he did
of the Public Works committee. Lewis not come earlier was that he knew the
he paid his $1,111 upon signing the ag- time- for taxes would be run out this
reement drawn up. If he has done the month and he had wanted it to lx* in-
work he ihould be paid and the agree- eluded iu the statement to the end of he paid something but he does

understood that the time was
six months io go, that it held good
for  six  months after he left  ollice.
The city solicitor—I do not think
there was any time, thoro may be. a
question of that kind. Tbat $178 odd
includes the. full fee of the special audit
I .-Ve.
The Mayor—What is your opinion,
legally speaking, regarding the charges ?
The city solicitor—Whatever work
was occasioned by the failure of Law-
son to do his work I think Lawson i--
properly chargeable with.
The Mayor—The extra work Was
done owing to his not doing his work
The city solicitor—But if the auditors had done the Work they should
Iiave done it strikes some there would
not have been this amount  paid.
Tlie Mayoi—True, that may be so.
Aid. MeKinnon—I have been following a eas.- in Calgary, there the' auditor says he was not responsible for
deficiencies by an official.
The city solicitor—An auditor is only supposed to audit what he     linds
matter has been up it   in the books, and if things are not in
statement  was to      be   the book-     he cannot audit  them.    H'
cannot  go on  his imagination.
Aid. MeKinnon—At Calgary the
books were just altered to make things
come right.
The city solicitor—In Calgary there
was an alteration of a sura of S5,iK>0.
Aid.  M Sorley—And leaves were tak
yet. One Ls a cheque which was put
'in as security on whi.h $*J5 per month
was paid. Wc have no receipts of the
amount-- paid in, and we have tried to
get them but failed. Lawson held the
cheque and a payment of 825 was to be
made against it each month. For the
payment- we have no receipts. Then
there is ,in account which the man
says wa- paid. There are these two
accounts which are not closed. The
report says "We hereby certify the
above is a correct statement of ae- -
eeiunt. We have at presenl no know-
lodge of any further amount to be
charged against bis account (Law -
-on'-." This is signed by the city
auditor.
In reply toa query by Aid. MeKinnon. Acting city olerk said these are
the Iwo about which we cannot find
out  the exact amount.
Aid.  M'Kinnon—As far as you know
total amount?
The acting city cierk—$178 und $2H0
and S7.5 approximately.
Aid.    MeKinnon—On several    ocas-
-ieetis  when this
was said     thu
made publi.' when completed. Is it
still the wish of the council to make
this statement public*.'
Thc Mavor—How long will it take
to complete it.   It is not complete yet
Aid. MeKinnon—It is complete as
fi r as you can expect it  to be.       The
which are matters of  memory.
The Mayor—You must rely on some
one.
Aid. M Ivinnon—As to this $75, the
man -ays he paid it and  Lawson says
not
ter if agreements a little more explicit
were  drawn   Up.
The Cily Soli, ilor—It   la pretty wide

The acting city clerk—The only case
of falsification was in the water an-d

of a duplicate then, and there was one
receipt for $4 inslead of $304. That
was (he only instance where there -

Aid. MeKinnon—I move that Law-
son be asked Th:- case seems to be
handled so much differently from the
way they ar.- generally handled, that
it is a very ticklis position for a motion, It looks ridiculous .,n the ia'e

SEWERAGE ASSESSMENT
Tie- Mayor brought forward the
matter- concerning wbi>-h Mr, Sutherland hail interviewed the council earlier in the meeting.
Aid. MeKinnon—There are several
Complaints  along   that   -ide.
The acting city .lerk—They were om
itted and afterwards  told  they    would
be  charged.   Th>>* ilo not    think  they
-hould  pay because there :-  no sewer
tlu'ough,
Th- city solicitor—They will be left
out if it i- found the property i- not
required for resi lential or similar purposes.
Aid. MeKinnon—A committee cannot
adjust that after the assessment i-
;nad.'. There were a lot o-f people on
the hill there who were exempt and
now they are charged and it t- shown
as taxes due.
The    Mayor—Whilst  on that  subject

practice should not only continue unchecked, but should bo encouraged by
legislation, which will make the deposits ns safe as possible.

REFERRED TO PUBLIC WORKS
Tin* Muyor brought forward a cotn-
I laint regarding ihe Hooding of cellar
premises between Fist sirect ami \ i>
toria Kiead on Boyle aveaue. It was
stated that this was clue lo excavations on 'li'1 new Musonii' building but
In- did not see how that eould have
intf ptfcrred.
On ihe motion of Aid. Me Kinnon tho
matter was referred to the Publi.:
Works committee.
INSURANCE
Thc nctini! city clerk said a ijucs-
lion had lie'cu brought t.e hi? notice
thai day about insurance. There seemed * rbe ome misunderstanding about
in imounl of insurance on city piop-
i rty.
Md. M Kinnon-I think Mr. North
wrot-e a report  .Mb.eut -it.
ili' acting eity elerk Baid thai according to thc lit/t of Insurances they
were carrying jGb'u too much iusur-
ance on the Li^ht and powei plaui al-
cue. Hc had before him a list of renewals due now and would like instructions.
Aid. MeKinnon—We certainly are not
j»omg to carry over insurance.
to attend  to   the  matter  on   the linos
indicated.
ASSESSMENT  CHARGES
Arising (rom the consideration of
an account of $-10 from Mr. Field ior
assessment charges, it was deoidadthat
the' amount should be paid on the understanding that it covered any neccf1-
>aiy services in connection with the
assessment roll until a sucevssor was
appointed.
TELEPHONE  POLES.
Mayor s-aicl complaints had been
about   the  positioning of     telephone   poles.
The eity solicitor said there was a
bylaw on the subject and the consent
The
made
The Mayor—It  seems  we are paying   C.P.R. should bring that thing to
insuranMe   ou   869,000   instead   of      on   head quickly.
>6J,000.
Aid. MeKinnon—How did it couu
about ?
The acting eity clerk—1 do not
know. 1 had some difficulty in getting
a list of all the insurances and when I
got the li.-t 1 figured it out and found
it was as stated.
The Mayor—1 do not see the necessity for the clerk having to go round
to tind oett what insurance there *s.
•The policies should be in our safe.
The acting     city clerk—The policies  biiities
are In the safe     but they have     been
changed.   Some ot  them      were     for
-thr'-Hi years ago and it was difficult to
find some of them.
Aid. Horobin—When do the next poll nies fall due '.'
The acting city clerk—Some are due
DOW.
Aid. McSorley—There should have
b„"Mi an insurance  book  kept with    all
ances to tell the foreman to cuUlowa
expends.
Aid. MeKinnon—I think so, there is
another amount that has lx?en ex -
[■ended which is not included here,
which makes the position worse.
Aid. McSorley—I do not think it
would be advisable to stop work. We
have a team, tbe foreman and prison-
ei-  and might a- well utilise them.
Aid. Howson—We have got more out
of the prisoners this year than ever
before by keeping them on the road
work.

Th credit of British Columbia

This was a message which *»ir Richard
McBride, Premier, brought back to his
fellow citizens in tbe Province on his
return yesterday from the metropolis
of  ih"  financial  woi l'i—London.
■ [i Ie no good disguising the fact
that tin monetary stringency which
has existed for several months'has not
yet been relieved,'* sai.: Bit Richard,

t nancial centre-, London, i'aris, Berlin
New York which hnve kept a close
v. ntch on our program of cevclopment,
ipprove of tbe superstructure we are
in the upbuifding of ibis Pro

'Wi have the i antral resources, au.l
our plans for developing our latent
wealth by building railroads and high-
ways and turning ecu potential forests
ond fisheries into tangible asset-, is
meeting \\.i ti the approval of those
who are vitally interested dn our future-, the investors who have subscribed i-n the loans which have built the
foundations
'Wo are pledged today to a pro -
gram of expansion that to those who
are unable to even dimly discern the
L-reatness of our destiny as a province
and a- part ni tbe Empire, may s*eeiu
too daring, but we ba\e put oui* hand
to ih.' plough and intend going
straight  0n.
"We ure today pledged to a great
railway policy which involves au ex-
penditure of millions of dollars, but
the railroads that arc planned are only
a unit in the inter-communicating sys
tem of roads and steel rails that will
one any interlace the entire province.
"British Co.umbia today sutlers from
growing pains, a necessary corollary
her natural development. What the
Province need: today i- less spineless
pessimism ami more' faith in itself. We
must uird ,,ur \onir. for the s.niggle
and  believe In our future greatness.
