Editor Courier!—I really think tlie
•'Old Man's" remarks in tlie Free Press
of Inst evening, in which he says thai il
is a peculiar circumstance that many of
the young ladies of the city take tbe direction ofthe Departure Bay road for a
stroll on Sunday afternoon for the purpose of comparing their charms wilh
those of their "dusky sister girls" is most
ln*i|ilting. If the "Old Man" is in tlie
habit of frequenting tbe Indian camp on
lhal road, why should be insinuate that
respectable white girls are in tlie habit of
following his example. Lilt.
tibn'on Courier:—In the evening paper
of toe 22d inst. an article appearetl headed
"A Poor l'olicv," anil iu which the writer
states that the streets, sidewalks and
bridges of Nanaimo would compart favorably with tlie other cities of the province,
ami also with Winnipeg, Now I have
visited all of the cities of the province,
ami also the city of Winnipeg, and I must
certainly take issue with the writer of tlie
article in question.
It is apparent that the writer ha* never
been outside of this city; or he would
never have made such a rash assertion.
To its discredit I must say, that of all the
cities of the province, Nanaimo is certainly in tlie worst condition of them all. To
compare its streets, bridges and sidewalks
and crossings as being equal to those of
any other city ia ridiculous, and by all accounts if tb« municipal authorities, with
their hands tied by the people, refusing
to supply ways and means to provide the
improvements actually necessary for repairing and placing the present streets,
etc., in decent condition, cannot do anything. I think it will be some years yet
before Nanaimo can attempt to compare
anything iu the way of streets, etc., to
any other city. It is all very well to say
by constantly referring to tho bad condition of tilings here lhat it will do liana
aud Injure the city, but look at the matter
in the oilier light'. May it not also have
a Beneficent effect and awaken up the people of the city to a proper state of things,
and accomplish the good purpose which
I have no doubt you hail in view when
bringing these matters and tbe state of
affairs before the public. Can any city or
town ever expect to become a place for
capitalists to invest their money unless
they can see something in the way of improvements goiug on, and the people
themselves expending seme money in
order to make and give the city or town
the appearance of one ?
Take the city of Vancouver ns an exam-
pit'and see what, through tho judicious
expenditure of money ban been obtained
there. You find the streets graded,
ph_iked, sidewalks built, electric light,
tire service the best in the prorinee; Tots
cleared and the streets being opened up,
handsome buildings erected, a street railway about to bo built this year and a gootl
supply of water ami waterworks, gas, and
II variety of other things, manufactures,
etc., too numerous to mention going on in
'lie city, and all of Ih.s done in the short
period of   four  years; and what  was at
hat time a forest lias been changed into a
fair and prosperous city, Why? Not because tbe railway terminus is there, but
simply because tbe people were go-ahead,
stirring and energetic. Vancouver lias
no coal fields to rely on, and although it
has the railroad terminus and tlie China
steamships lo assist it to some extent,
yet tlie number of men employed by the
railroad company and steamship company
Is not one-half tbe number engaged in
Nanaimo in the coal trade.
1 don't think you can tind any person
residing in Nanaimo or who has been a
visitor to the "Black Diamond City" for
the laBt three months, except the writer
of the article in question, who will have
the audacity to deny that during that time
the streets have been muddy, and in some
places the crossings could not be seen for
Ihe mud on top of them. True once iu a j
while the corporation's workmen would
scrape them off, but owing to tlie crossings being so low, perhaps ancient, they
would in an hour be in junt as bad condition again.
To attempt to compare the streets, etc.,
of Ibis eity with either Winnipeg or San
FrancisCO is so absurd that 1 will not take
up space in vour valuable paper to show
its absurdity.
1 would strongly advise the editor of
the "Frue Press" to advocate improvements throughout the city instead of
wasting time writing statements respecting tbe condition of tlie city which be
knows will not bear inspection. 1 think,
perhaps, if he took a holiday and visited
the places named, also the cities of the
province, he would Ik. convinced of the
untruthfulness of the article ol tha 22,1
inst. Yours, etc.,

ship.Calliope and the German corvettes
Adler, Olga and Eber. Everything has
been quiet since tlie last reports from Samoa sent home and Commodore Mullon

the same mail. The Trenton had not arrived, Commander Mullon, commanding
tlie Nipsic, reports to the Navy under
date 01 February 28rd. II. M. 1',. ship

BONUSES.
The question of bonusing new entei-
prises and industries is one which has always commanded more or less attention
from towns and cities whose citizens were anxious to encourage
tbe starting of industries among them.
A eonteiniiorary speaking of the question
of bonusing says that In Canada every
new ami then a regular epidemic breaks
out ia some section of the country. It
further says that "in the Province of Ontario the bonusing of rail nays anil industries has been carried on at times to a
reckless extent by municipal corporations, and some towns have suffered severely from taxation, brought about by
the bentis system. To such an extent
has bonusing been carried on In On-
* tario that the Legislature of that province
very wisely passed an act some time ago
intended to greatlv restrict the evil, for
such it certainly bad become. Among
other features this Ontario act provided
that no bonus should be granted with the
object of inducing the removal of an industry flready established!, to some other
point; certainly a very reasonable pro-
vise."
As regards iu imicipal bonusing, our .contemporary thinks that- "it is something
■which should be prohibited altogether,"
and concerning manufacturing industries
which cannot lie established "withoutthe
aid of bonuses had better be left alone.
There may be occasional exceptions to
this rule, especially in a new country
which is in need of development, and
where capital is usually timid." But very
frequently bonusing lends to the establishing of unprofitable industries, or to
the erection of mills or factories on a
cheap scale, ami uusuilcd tu tlo good and
profitable work. In dealing with the cost
of bonusing, it says that very few people
really undei-stand what the granting of a
bontiB means. The people will look nt
the naked amount offered and conclude that they can pay the same
without ever feeling it. It will only
amount to a few mills on the assessment
roll of the place.
"Another great mistake which new
towns are sure to make in considering tin-
cost ef bonuBing is, that the future is invariably heavily discounted. 'We will
spread the payments over a great many
years ahead, and with the rapid growth
of the town, we will never feel the bonus.'
This is the way the matter is presented
to the electors. But the growth of tbe
town frequently does not materialize In
accordance with expectation. Besides, in
a new and growing town, a large expenditure is always necessary for public improvements, which usually are required
more rapidly than the financial position
of the town will a!low of their being undertaken. Care should therefore be taken
not to burden a new town by granting
bonuses, which may operate to prevent
the carrying out of needed public improvements, or make it impossible to
secure money for such undertakings, except at high rates of interest."
We commend the above extracts to the
careful attention of our readers. Bonuses
for various purposes have liecn spoken ol
in this city, but we hold tlie first thing a
city hns to do in to provide for public improvements for tlie city. It cannot be
doubted that the principle of bonusing is
bad, for such it bus proved to lie iu main
Kastern cities where the experiment has
been tried.

great danger of being burned. Every ]
one around there seemed to dump their j
refuse crates and straw around the supports, lie thought hy the smell that

for night soil. Merchants should be'made j
to burn their old crates, straw, etc The

J.EPLEACE,
wished to move that the oiler be accepted.
Motion carried.
Aid. Nightingale said thai Mr. Heyland
C. E. had surveyed Mill street. He 01-
pected a tracing would have been sent
in. He would start the work early neit
week.
Aid. Mahrer moved that the street committee put the street in good order. Carried.
Aid. Abrams wished to knew about tin-
duties of the City Assessor. He waB unable to be present last meeting. Mill
street had Something to do with his absence. He thought that it was impossible for the Assessor to make out a complete assessment roll at the price named
without the assistance of the city clerk.
Aid. Hilbert said that his motion at the ,
last meeting was that the Assessor assist.
the city clerk.   That waB the way he had
understood it.
Aid. Mahrer replied that Mr. Smith
fully understood that he was to be assessor with Mr. (lough to assist him. Ih
did not see anything to hinder him from
lining the work. He would remove the
responsibility from the shoulders of the
city clerk, who had heen blamed for alleged patiality by some persons.
Aid. Abrams—Mr. Smith has been led
to believe that he will make out an hide
pendent list.    Will he?
Aid. Mahrer—He. will gel assistuini
roin the City Clerk.
Aid. Nightingale hoped that Mr. Smilh
did not begin to doubt himself. lie
thought himself that the price paid was
too low, but that was Mr. Smith's fault.
Aid. Abrams said that the City Clerk
could go with him.
Aid. Nightingale—What! And say that]
this lot was assessed so antl so last year.
He could find that out for himself.    Most
of the Aldermen knew the old assessment
price.   He knew most of them.
Aid. Mahrer was sorry the question had
returned before them, as he hat! voted for
Mr. Smith because he thought he had
more time than the other applicants for
the position, but had since discovered
that Mr. Aitken, who put in a lower tender, had as much time. If Mr. Smith did
not think himself competent for the position let him say so.
Aid. Hilbert—He is, bv by-law, the Assessor. He understood lhat- when the
motion was put.
Aid. Abrams moved that the City Clerk
assist the Assessor. <
Aid. Mahrer seconded the motion.
Aid. Nightingale moved that the asses-
nor do  the assessing  without the  assistance of the city clerk.
Aid. Peck seconded the amendment.
Th.- Mayor—The committee wishes Mr.
Smith to mnke the assessment.
Aid. Abrams—Then your Worelltp the
motion calls for a by-law.
A'd. Nightingale—Will you leave the
motion as put at last meeting?
The Mayor—Une at a time please and
adlress the chair.
Ths city clerk then read Mr. Smith's
letter asking  forappcintmint  as city as-
The'city clerk said that he had explained  to all  applicants  that they   were to

i would men he put to work ?
Aid. Abrams—Mr.  J. Dick   	
was a very had place iu the road opposite
his property.
Aid. Nightingale said it was necessary
to raise money for the city.   All the mag-1   _    ,,   , ,,, ,,.      .,

creased price, let them  sell out to those
who could.
Aid. Hilhert seconded the motion.
The  Mayor thought that it would be
better to write to our local members.
.Aid. Nightingale—You might, as well |
ask Ihe  painter as our local members— I
tbev don't know where Nanaimo is excepl
at election times.  Sooke, Comox, Alberni
—any place, In fact—was preferable to
them to Nanaimo,
'.    Aid.  Abrams thought the City Clerk
should  he  Instructed  10 write   to  Mi.
Beaven, who was the introducer of the
' bill.
Aid. Mahrer wished Aid. Nightingale to
change his motion, He wished to
communicate with the local members,
first. They had Intimated their Intention
to support any means in raise money. Ho
wished Iii sharpen them up a hit.
Aid. Nightingale was willing to do an,
hut thought it was nn use. They would
take no notice,
Aid. Mahrer though! that •then'than
Mr. Heaven might he Interested. Many
members would certainly gel up and yawn,
go to sleep or go oul when the subject was
broached. The license was not to exceed
|S00.
Aid. Baker—Has the City Clerk received a letter from Mr. Tippett, stating
that he Intended to finish his contract?
The City Clerk said he had only received a letter from Mr. Davie asking for;
(200.
Aid. Raker—When was the contract to
be finished?
City Clerk—The first of January.
, Aid. Hilhert—The Methodist trustees
wish to dump the rock from the excavations for the Methodist Church, on Wallace street, wncro the corporation workmen have left off. It would make a fine
road.
Aid. Mahrer—Provided they break the
rock.
Aid. Nightingale hoped they had four
or live hundred ions.   Leave granted.
Aid. Peck gave notice that he would
introduce a by-law tn buy the water
works and build 11 new Bastion street
bridge.
Aid. llaker—What does the  council intend lo tlo in the Tippett matter?
Aid. Nightingale—I  met  Tipp-tt two
weeks agn and he swore by the Holy fit.
Patrick lhal-he would hot dn a stroke
more work. He would make the council
pay him. He had done all the work In-
intended to on Nicol street, lie was voted
|800 and then put. The way he dropped
his mattock and shovel would convey the
i upresslon that they were led hot. The
balance of $200 will' have to be expended
somehow.
The Mayor—Sue him ior thc $3 a day
forfeit.
Aid. Nightingale said he was not like
Ciesar's wife, above suspicion. He had
occasionally made n little on  n contract
