Provincial ilbr'in g31oo'
Nelson,  British Columbia, Tuesday, January 7, 1902
Eleventh Y
Is John A. Klrkpatrlck Qualified to Run for Office
of Mayor.
It Is Possible That He Oannot Be Put on Voters'
Consternation has heen sproid
1111111111; the supporters of J. A. Kirk
Patrick by the announcement that he
was not qualified to run for mayor.
The law in regard to qualiflca'tion is
very plain. It provides that those
who desire to have tlieir names entered on t,h,i voters' list must pay all
taxes before December 'st, or be left
off. Mr. Kirpkatiick failed to pay the
taxes on a piece of real estate in
wliub he is jointly interested with
anolier and owing to this delinquency
his name was not put ou the list. The
taxes have since been paid and Mr.
Kirkpatriok thought that all he would
have to do would be to go beforo the
police magistrate, Mr. Crease, and be
placed on the Hat, as such method had
beon in vogue in former years. There
has been considerable doubt as to the
legality of this procedure and thc
opinion of several solicitors was had
and they declared that names so
omitted could not be legally placed on
the list. ln order to seoure a ruling
on the question the office of the attorney-general was communicated
with by Police Magistrate Crease.
The attorney-general's office ruled in
effect that the police magistrate had
no right to put names on the list after
it had beeu revised by the mayor,
where the party seeking this right had
failed to pay his taxes before December 1st.
On looking up the law in the municipal elections act it is found that
police magistrate of a city, or auy
iudge of the supreme or county court
is empowered to hear or determine
when it is alleged, after the voters'
list has been certified as oorrect by the
mayor, that any person's name has
been improperly omitted from the
voters' list and the clerk of the municipal cjnrt, or presiding officer, is
authorized to add to the voters list the
name of any person whom the police
magistrate or judge decides is entitled
to vote, and whose name should have
been inserted.
Police Magistrate Crease does not
desire to act in an arbitrary manner
in the premises, but as the attorney-
general's office in a manner is over
him in this question,he cannot depart
from the instructions wbich he has
Judge Forin,yesterday in the case of
a resident of Slocan, wbo has become
qualified since tbe voters' list was
closed, refused to order his name
inserted because "his name had not
been improperly omitted from the
list of voters,"
It looks very much as if J. A. Kirkpatriok and a number of others, it
their names have not been 'improperly
omitt-d' from the voters' list are dis-
qualifie from voting or being voted for
at tbe forthcoming city election It
is possible that some other candidate
may have to be selected than J. A.
Kirkpntrick. The best and most
feasible solution of the difficulty,
however, would be to re-elect Mr.
Fletcher by acclamatiou.
enquiry sent him bv the council that
in Lis opinion the city was not liable
tor a month's salary tn ex-Chiet Lillie
or that the latter had any claims
upon it, and quoting various authuri-
t es and precedents.
A letter was read from the agent of
the Chicago foundry from which the
eity fire bell had been purchased, enclosing one from the firm to himself
in whieh they asked for a detailed
statement of thc cracking of the   bell.
A communication from I. lioyd,
applying for a position ns ("river of
the fire team was filed.
Alderman Irving asked If all the
persons whose names were on the
voters' list bad paid their taxes.
Alderman Madden intimated that be
though a number had boon left off
that should be there.
Thc city clerk said that to the best
of his Knowledge all that were entitled lo be on were there, witb the
exception of a few that might have
been overlooked. Anyone whose
names had been loft off wrongly by
applying to him would be given the
proper apolication form for filling
and attesting before a magistrate
when the name would be put on.
This ot course, only applied to those
whose names should by rights bave
been on.
Aid. Selous said that several of his
friends hail been after him to know
why their names had been let off,
nnd in each ease it was because they
had not paid their taxes on the date
required by tbe statute.
Several cases were mentioned by
Aid. Irving which were enquired into
by the oity clerk.
Chinese Court Returns to   the   Capital
Today Amid Great Pomp.
Pekin, .Tan. 6. ���The Chinese officials
have requested tho ministers of the
powers to keep the legation guards
within their quarters tomorrow in
order to prevent the possibility of a
collision between the Chinese and
foreign troopB. The ministei*. w..!^1
comply ���
The families of the foreign diplomats will occupy buildings which the
Chinese government haa tendered them
for the purpose of viewing the parades
iu connection with the return of the
court to Pekin. There is much criticism at this course among the foreigners who are rot satisfied that the min-
iters alone will remain in the legation. They believe that the event
should be completely ignored. They
say the presence nf any members of
the legation will be construed as
being a sort of homage and will be
thus proclaimed among the people.
The foreigners are divided into two
factions concerning the future relations of the diplomats with the court,
one of them holding that they should
be limited tn the fulfillment of the
most formal, obligatory ceremonies
and the other holding that in official
and social relations the ministers
should endeavor to be more intimate
with the court than formerly and
should meet all Chinese advances in
the most friendly spirit.
Many foreign soldiers and a few
officers today violated the government's request to keep off the streets
which have been cleaned and decorated for the royal procession. This
is likely to create resentment. Railway traffic between Pekin and Pao
Ting Fu except on the courts' business has been congested since the
arrival of the court at Pao Ting Fu
Special trains for two days past have
been bringing the court's baggage
here. Official business monopolizes
the telegraph lines and the postal service to Pao Ting Fu.

city solicitor stating  in answer to the
Nentoundl nd Dare  Not  Oppose   Renewal of Agreement With France.
St. John's, Nfld., Jan. 0.���The colonial authorities entertain the hope
that the llritish government docs not
expect a renewal of the French shore
modus viveudi (wliioh expired Dec.
31st, 1001) for the current .voir. They
consider that this arrangement has
proved a very great drawback to the
welfare of the cilony and that its renewal would prolong the vexatious
phases of the French question (or a
further period. Were it not for the
Boer war,there is little doubt but that
the colony would refuse to renew this
measure. Even as it is, there is a
strong element in the upper house of
the colonial legislature which is op
posed to the renewal of this arrange
ment under any oircuustanccs.

The   Thirty-Four Owner of   One   Lot
Are Not Allowed to Vute.
The application of the now famous
34 of Slocan City ta have their names
placed on the list of voters of that
city was heard in chambers by his
honor Judge Forin yesterday and their
application refused. The names of the
applicants had been omitted by Mayor
York in revising tho voters' list and
on their bohalf W.A. Galliher applied
for an order from the County court
judge, under section 12 of the Municipal Elections aot, to whom appeal
raty be taken, directing that their
names be Inserted. The refusal was
based on the preliminary objections
raised so that the general question of
the rights in joint ownership was not
passed upon. R. S. Lennie, who opposed the application, argued that
though the applicants may be property
owners they were not entitled to vote
under subsection (a) of section 6 of
the Act unless they were also assessed
owners on the assessment roll of the
city. The assessment roll used aa the
basis for the first election wbb the
assessment roll prepared by the provincial government for the area now
included in the limits of the oity of
Slocan ; the council had not prepared
one subsequently for 1001 and indeed
had no power to do so. The names of
the applicants not being on that roll
they could not now be the assessed
owners and had no locum standi to be
put on the list.
Mr. Galliher contended that the
municipality of Slooan city had prepared an assessment roll in 1001, and
sent out notlros and had called a oonrt
of revision. The previous year's roll,
wbich had been prepared by the provincial government, could sot be
taken as the assessment roll for the
city of Slocan. The roll for 1902 was
prepared in 1901, which, while illegal
for the purpose of collecting taxes,
was the pioper and valid one for base-
ing the voters' list for 1902-on.
He also contended that these Were
the parties chargeable with the taxes
on the property and could not bave
been charged with the taxes because
none had been levied.
Mr. Lennio's answer to this was
that the list for 1902 cannot be a list
for 1901 and that the only assessment
roll for the city of Slocan was the
provincial assessmentgroll.
His honor in dismissing the application said the assessment roll of the
provincial government was by virtue
of the Slocan City Incorporation act,
sec. 8, the roll upon which the assessed owners of land were to vote. The
act also makes other provision for preparing a list of voters Section 1 of
chapter 7 of the act of 1I>00, amending
sec. 6, chap, S, provides that the
assessment roll of a municipality for
the year preceding the holding of an
election shall be the basis upon which
the list of persons entitled to vote
shall be prepared. The question
ariies, what is the basis of the voters'
list for this coming election? It appeared to him that there ia only one
answer, namely, the assessment roll
of the year preceding, which is this
case is the provincial government
assessment roll, and the names had
not been improperly omitted. The
application is therefore dismissed.
In this case the 34 applicants had
entered into an agreement to purchase
a lot assessed at $50 and on Nov. 10
applied to be put on the voters' list as
assessed owners. It is calculated that
at the usual rate of taxation the
amount of taxes payable by eaoh
would be one-quarter of a cent.
Peter Hchomberg applied to be put
on the voters' list as a license holder.
He had been an alien when the list
waB prepared but had been naturalized
on December 21st. In this case his
honor held thnt the name bad been
properly omitted from the list.
Edward Haley also applied to be put
on the list as a property owner, hut
as all thc realty he owned was a shack
his application was withdrawn by
Mr. Galliher.

Registered and Photographed.
Washington, Jan, 0.���The senators
and representatives of the Pacific coast
who have been considering a bill for
Chinese exolusion, have perfected a
measure which will he introduced in
both houses in a few days. It is much
more comprehensive than any bills
that have been presented heretofore on
this subject most of which simply
provided for excluding Chinese or
reenacting the Geary law. Thc bill
under consideration does not limit
itself to any tern of years, as did tbe
Geary act, but if passed in its present
form would be perpetual unless
Tbe bill declares that all Chinese,
other than citizens of the United
States or those who are secured in
coming to and residing in the United
States under the present treaty with
China, shall be refused admission and
returned to the country whence they
came at the expense of the transportation company 'ringing them. Tbe
only Chinese persons permitted to
enter the United States under the
act are these who have become citizens
by birth and naturalisation and
officials of the Chinese government,
teachers, students, merchants, travellers for pleasure or curiosity, returning laborers who must have certificate
or domiciled merchants. No Ohinase
except diplomatic or consular officers
are allowed to enter tbe United States
at any other ports than San Francisco,
Port Townsend,Wash., Portland, Ore.,
Boston, New York, New Orleans,
Honolulu, San Jnan and Manila.
Ports may be designated on tlie Canadian or Mexioan boundary after contracts bave been made with the transportation lines to comply with the
Provision Is made for the registration of all Chinese now in the United
States to be completed within six
months after the passage of the aot.
All registered Chinese shall have a

of the charges of fraud brought in
connection with tlie recent robbery of
the Hank of Liverpool was resumed
at the Bow street police court today,

Times Discusses American   Economies
Flying Machine Competition.
London, JJan. 7.���The Times this
morning devotes a long editorial to
a review of the economic situation in
the United States in which it takes
the view that in spite of the appar
eutly tremendous material progress
made in America of recent years, (his
progress is insufficient to warrant the
view of its economic results taken
either by sanguine Americans or timid
Europeans. The Times contends that
tho recent prosperity has led to over
investing and .that the faot that exchange during the past autumn remained in favor of London tends to
show that the balance of trade is not
in favor of the United States.

Deep   Sensation   Caused By the Shooting of Student Held.

a deep sensation throughout Germany.
Lieut. Thiene is the best pistol shot
of his regiment and pistols are selected by the court of honor, which stipulated that five shots should be exchanged. Held was killed at the
third exchange of shots. The deul
resulted from a party of students having jostled some army officers on the

Rival    Railways    Threaten
Each Other at Gur-
Teams Are Hitched to Timbers   of   Overhead
Grand Forks, Jan. ��.���A bloodless
clash, which at one time threatened to
assume dangerous proportions, occurred near Curlew, Wash., yesterday
afternoon over a disputed crossing
between lival forces ot the Great
Northern and the Republic and Grand
Forks railway respectively. Tlio
sheriff of Ferry county and several
armed deputies are now on the scene
with the object of preventing a breach
of the peace. Two miles south of
Curlew, which is a point fifteen miles
from thu international boundary, the
Repblic and Grand Forks road crosseH
the Kettle river on a high bridge,now
in an advanced stage of completion.
The approaches on eithei side consists of long treBth's, the one on the
east bank crossing the grade of the
Great Northern overhead at a high
The accounts of the affair are very
conflicting but from reliable information it seems that the bridge men of
the contractors, Lane and Co., were
engaged in constructing the narrow
guage overhead across tho Great
Northern grade when a gang of men
in the employ of the Great Northern
put in an appearance and after a war
uf words started to hitch their t.iams
to the timbers of the trestle with the
evident intention of pulling it down.
The bridge men working on the
Republic and Grand Forks railway
sent for reinforcements and after
threatening to roll huge timbers down
on top of tho horses compelled the
invaders to withdraw. Although several teams had meantime tugged
away at the trestle work the timbers
wero found to have been practically
undisturbed. Several threats of reprisals were made but no gun plays
actually occurred.
Judge Palmer, of Republic, Wash,
who happened to be in Grand Forks
spending Sunday, was sent for hurriedly and on learning of tbe state of
affairs proceeded to Curler:. It is reported that ho subsequently issued an
interim injunction restraining the
Republic and Grand Forks railway
from continuing thc work The
sheriff of Ferry county, and several
armed deputies were summoned from
Republic and are now patrolling the
disputed crossing with the object of
provontlng a renewal of the trouble
and compelling both parties to observe
the order of the court. It is said that
bad feeling exists between the members of the rival railway gangs and
that it will require considerable effort
to prevent them from resorting to
force. Several people who arrived tonight from Curlew report tbat the day
passed off uneventfully.
American Ship Builders ia Position to
Compete With the World.
Berlin, Jan. 0.���Theo. Jard
Sohwartz, a German naval constructor, who was recently sent to tho
United States by the marine general
Btaff to investigate ship building
there, bas submitted his renort. The
investigator says that materials for
the construction of steel ships aro
lowo*- in price in the United Status
than in any country and the only
thing to be complained of Is the fluctuations in prices, which makes competition with foreign ship builders
(iirfioult. He refers to the splcudid
body cf American workmen earning
wages from 30 to 50 per cent, higher
than those paid in Great Britain and
100 per Cent, higher than thc wages
paid on tho continent.
Schwartz reports that notwithstaud-
ing tbe wages paid, freighters aro
being built on the great lakes as
cheaply as tramp steamers are built in
Great Britain. The new consolidation
of ship building companies in the
United States, he says, is the largest
and richest in the world and that it
will devote its resources to economic
ship building. In conclusion he lays:
We see therefore that the Americans!
are striving with all the means in
their command to put their shipbuilding industry in a position successfully
tu compete with the long established
ship builders on tbe one hand and on
the other with the younger but
rapidly develuping ship builders of

the loan authorized by the last   house
is   gone   and   that   the   idea  now   is
to   raise   merely   sufficient   money to
protect   the   government's   overdraft.
In conclusion the correspondent   says,
"Of   course   the   piesent state of  the
money market is a large   factor iu the
success of the loan, but the  unsettled
political   condition   of British Columbia is chiefly   the cause of the ik-cline
in the province's credit."
This means that thc government
cannot erect the Fraser river bridge,
nor can it do anything in the way o'
advancing the railway development
of the province.
This   shows   to   what a low ebb the
unstable   drifting   policy   adopted by
tbe    government     has     brought   the
country.   Mr.   Turner   on   former occasions   wns   able   to secure loans for
tlie province on favorable   terms,   but
tbat   was   before the   Dunmuir ininis-
tery   oame   Into power ana when   thc
credit   of   thc   province had not been
ruined by imbecility. When a government   is     discredited   at   home    and
abroad and its credit  so badly injured
hat  it   cannot   negotiate  a loan of a
Jew   millions   iu   London,   it Is high
time that it retires and makes room for
a   ministry   thnt   will be   stable and
���which   will restore the province's lost
prestige'and credit.    The province has
arrived   at that stuge in its  existence
when   large   public   improvement are
absolutely   necessary   for its    further
development.      It will not do to cease
in aiding in tbe   development   of  the
vast natural resources ut  this time, as
such   a course   would   be   disastrous.
The present ministry must be got   rid
of at any cost ar.d   at once and with a
new and better ministry  made up of a
more progressive element,and ouewhich
has   less   personal   interests  to serve,
,   the   credit   of   the province would be
restored  and   tho development go forward again with its old   time   swing.
It   is   hign   time   that the  people rid
themselves    of   an     incubus    whose
capacity and good faith aie distrusted
all   over   tbe Dominion   of Canada as
well as in the monetary centres of the
The municipal campaign may now
said to be fairly on, and from now on
till the 10th instant, when the polling
takes place, there will be much discussion ol civic matters and of the
men wno are before the publio for
municipal positions. For the place of
mayor there are two candidates,Frank
Fletcher, the present incumbent, and
.1. A. Kirpuktrick, who was a member
of the board of aldermen under the
Neeland's administration. Tho Miner
iavors the re-election of .Mr. Fletcher
to the position of mayor, because it
believes he is better fitted to fill the
place than his opponent. It favors
thc re-election of Mr.Fletcher because
he has shown during the time that be
has filled the offloe of chief executive
of the city that he was in fact mayor
and submitted to no dictation on the
part of those who desired to run municipal affairs to suit their pnvate
interests. lie has shown that he has
force of character sufilcient to admiu-
istet   tbe   affairs   of   tbe city in   the

Dreamers of all ages have sought  in
vain   for   the   clixn of life,   but their
quest wns in vain, for at the appointed
time the searchers   succumbed   to   the
immutable law that all that live must
die.    The fountain of perpetual youth
is to   be found at the other side of the
river ol death and not ou   this   earth.
Dr.   Urown-Sequnrd    thought   he   had
discovered a fluid that  would   rejuvenate hi in and others hut died  after he
had   administered   to   himself a   few
doses of   his   medicine.      The   alchemists of old fussed and fumed   umong
their   chemical   compounds   in   their
laboratories  from   youth   till age and
died   the sooner from lack of fresh air
while   seeking   to   wrest.from nature
thc seoret_of   the extension   of   life to
limits beyond that   allowed   to   man.
The latest claimant to tho discovery of
the elixir is Jacob   Loeb, of  Chicago,
who nays.by means of  potassium suits
thnt ho oan delivei man from the King
of Terrors   and   render   him   immune
against the assaults ot disease and   of
the grim reaper.      His   theory   is that
death is   not due to   the   breaking up
of the tissues, whieh has so long   been
accepted as the  cause,   but   rather   to
enemies to life   in the blood.     These
enemies, be declares, can be overcome
by potassium salts and   death   defied,
Ml. Loeb has tried potassium salts on
sea urchins and says   it has been   successful and thinks it will   act   in   the
same way on the higher  form   of   life
as found in   man.      People   who   are
carrying life insurance need   not  cancel   them   for   a   while yet  as   it   is
more than possible that there   will be
some hitch in Mr.Loeb's elixir, which
will   render it   Inoperative.     Even if
Mr. Loch's theory   is true people will
continue to be victims of accidents by
sea and land, in Hood and IIre.in mil-
way and other wrecks.   Though scientists have succeeded by tbeir discover-
interest of thc people and to demonstrate that he considered the people's
interest paramount to all others.
With   regard   to the question of the
ownership   of   publio utilities and the
ownership of all franchises pertaining
thereto   Mr.   Fletcher regards  such a
policy as the proper oDe   beyond   dispute and no sensible person   will   dis
pute the soundness of   such   doctrine
Mayor Fletcher and his   council  have
never  by   any act or deed jeopardized
any franchise or public utility in   the
least   degree   and    every    concession
granted to any company   by   tbe  city
contains  a   clause   giving   the     city
power   to   purchase   at   any time the
privilege which is granted.   The only
companies which were granted concessions   during the   time he   has   held
public   oflice  were  the   Nelson   Coke
and    Gas   Company   and   the   Tramway   company.        Tbe   charters     of
both these provide that   they   can   be
purchased   by   ihe city at   any   time
the oity authorities deems it expedient
to take them   over.      Tho   matter   of
obtaining   eloctrio light was merely a
business proposition in   tavor   of  the
citizens, and   no   distortion   of   facts
could   construe   it into   any infringement of the   city's right   to   hold   its
own franchise.
It is admitted on all sides that Mr.
Kii'kpatrtick is in amiable gentleman
and a good citizen, but it is openly
stated on the streets that he is completely under thc domination of Mr.
Houston and that the latter will be
the mayor and not Mr. Kirkpatrick,
in the remote contingency of his
being elected. The publio utility
gag is used by the opponents of Mr.
Fletcher to throw dust into the eyes
of the^electors and as a cloud to cover
personal nntagonism of the editor of
the-Tribune. The^lattcr has claimed
the right, as though he was the Lord's
runolnted aud born with the divine
right to rule, to dictate the policy of
every mayor Nelson has had and failing in tbis he usually starts a crusade
of defamation till the people have become tired of his blusteringB. With
Mr. Kirkpatrick as mayor he would
run municipal matters to suit his own
ideas; on the other hand, with Mr.
Fletcher re-elected the wants and the

my own skill as well as many others, 1 chanced to see your sign upon your

My wife commenced taking it about the first of November. I very soon notioed

The Boundary country will woather
the panic in copper much better than
was. ut flrst thought it would. It is
claimed that the Granby Consolidated
ean manufacture copper with the
mnrket at nine cents per ponnd and
-till make a handsome profit. In
speaking of the situation there the
Phoenix Pioneer says: "Let ns now
look to the record ol the greatest copper iiroducer In the Boundary���the
Granby company. We refer to tbis
concern, not because its mines are
located in Phoenix, but because it
gels nut and smelts more oro than any
other copper concern in the province.
The economy with which the ore is
broken down and sent to tho smelter,
and the cheapness with which this
fluxing rock is turned into copper
matte; the fact thnt the company has
already discontinued sending its
matte to New Jersey for refining, but
will hereafter convert its own matte
at the smelter, the converter now
being almost ready for operation ; thc
fact that steam shovels will before
long still further reduce the cost of
extraction���ill these things go to
prove that at no point on the continent can copper be produced more
cheaply than right here in the Boundary   country.     This is  accomplished

Snbstance of an Address by Dr,   Hall
llefore  the Socialist Club.
On Sunday afternoon   Dr. G. A.   B
Hall addressed a crowded   meeting  of
the   Socialist   league,   in the Miners'
union ball, on lhe.subject of   Municipal   government.     Amongst some of
the reforms he advocated,he expressed
himself in favor of the abaliliOD of the
ward syitem, as it created evils which
could only be remedied by the election
of a fuil   ticket.     He   also   expressed
biinsoll in favor of the   appointing   of
aldermen for a term of   two years and
so srranged   that   tho occasion   would
never arise that thc whole of   tbo   old
council   would   he turned out and the
city's   business   left   entirely   in the
ba'uls of inexperienced men.     He also
advocated the increase of  the number
o' aldermen,   from   six to nioe, as   st
the presint time,   with only six mem.
bers on the council, lt threw loo much
responsibility   upon a few men,   when
it   should   be   distributed amongst   a
larger   number   of the   cituens.     He
���lap     favored   municipal    ownership
wherever possible, especially in regard
to   the   telephone,   light   and   water
facilities, as well as  the   encouraging
of Industries by the granting of power
at   oost, where   municipal   ownership
was found   to   bo   impracticable.     In
this connection ho favored the ereotion
of an electric power plant,for the purpose   of   supplying the city with adequate   lighting   facilities  and   would
favor the granting of power at cost, to
such industries as the  Electric   Tram
way   Co.. and other infant indnstries,
of a purely local character. ' ' He   also
belioved in free education, both in the
higher     branches     as   well     as   the
elementary.    He also favored the payment   of good and   adequate   salaries,
to all ln the employ oi the   city.     He
condemned the system  of   government
of the city schools   from   Victoria,   as
that august body   was   always a year
or more belli nd tbe   times.      He   also
advocated the doing   of   more   of   the
city work by public contract.
A number ot questions were asked
relevant to the points enumerated by
thu doctor and considerable opposition
was raised to tho ideas he adarnced in
regard to the performance of public
vtork by contract and the fostering of
one industry,iu pielerence to another,
when it was not a part of the municipal government.
Thc meeting was one of the must
j argely attended, ever held by the
club, which indicates that the working men and citizens of Nelson are
beginning to study the questions ot

Rev. F. II. Graham, who has ao-
cepted lhe rect-irship of St. Saviour's,
Nelson, was the recipient of irany
tokens of esteem upon bis severing his
connection with the congregation of
Trinity church, Montreal, of whioh he
has been in charge for five years. His
last sermon was on the evening of
Sunday week when there wns a very
large attendance at his church. The
last service he conducted was the
watcii night service. The congregation tendered him a farewell social
and the Auglican clergy of the city
presented him with an illuminated
address and a splendidly bound copy
of the Bible. The Sons of England
lodge, cf which he wus chaplain, presented him with m past president's
Proposition Afoot to Send Nelson
Rinks to That Event.
The Curling club held a largely attended meeting last night in the
Board of Trade rooms when the proposal to send a rink to the Winnipeg
bonspeil was discussed and action
taken. Llefore the meeting a letter
had been received from Calgary stating that the bonspeil there had been
postponed, and as the date set would
conflict with di trict fixtures the suggestion to participate in thnt was
After dicossing the details of the
trip to Winnipeg it was resolved that
the money that would have gone to
purchase a supper for the winning
side iu the president vs.vice-president
matoh be applied toward a fund to
send a rink to Winnip'g. A committee composed of Missis. W. A. Macdonald, Judge Form, A.11. Buchanan,
P. E. Wilson and F. A. Tamblyn was
appointed on ways and means for the
trip, and Messrs.Tnmei-,N.T McLeod,
J. F. Weir, J. Rae and F. Tamblyn tu
obtain the names of those who will be
able to go and from these a selection
will be made.
A set of stringent rules had been
drawn up by the committee governing
the use of the ice and the playing of
schedule games and these alter discussion were adopted.

The "flrst of the meetings of the
week of prayer was held in tbe Methodist church last ovening when Hev.
Wm. Munroe spoke on the subjeot of
The Churob, taking as text the words:
Thou art Peter aud upon this rook I
will build my church, Matt. XVI: la.
After referring to the disputations
that had arisen over (he meaning of
these words, Mr. Mnnroe said;: Peter
had just uttered thc words, "Thou art
the Christ.1' Christ turns to him
with an antithesis, thou art I'etcr, not
Simon, the son of Jonah, but Peter,
tho new man. Upon this rook, tho
new man, the man reformed by me,
the Christ, I will build my church.
I am the bed rock and upon the stone
quarried from the bed rock I will
build. Not upon tbe man. Christ never
suid be would build upon man. Thc

himself. The superstructure rises
from it magnllicant in Its proportions.
Facing every wind and blast and
storm delimit of every tempest,
Uodlike in its purity and power because it Is built upon the eternal
foundation Chist in Man, He -'(included, it is the business cf local churches
to do Christ's work. To do this wc
must be controlled by none but
Christ. Wo must be free from the
bondage of men and true to thc commands ef (lod. Not bouud by laws
that man has made we must stand
face to faae with our Master. The
whole world for bim must be our
motto. Loyally then,man to man and
church to church let us build upon

and the churches an incarnation of
the Christ.
