Cutnmons, this morning, Lieut.-Col.
McDonald presiding. Tbe counoil in
its report regretted that some of last
year's recommendations bad not been
adopted. It was impossible fur tbe
association to send men to Shoebury-
ness last year because there were no
ranges there that the members could
have used. It is understood that in
future the men will havo to provide
their own ranges. As an alternative
measure the oouncil recommended that
each artlleryman be granted 8200, to
assist in acquiring artillery instruction provided the government furnished transportation to England. Tbe
council lecommends the establishment of small professional libraries to
enable members to study and to lead
books of reference to those seeking
artillery knowledge.

In the Rocky Mountains There
Are Many Swltzer-
lands.
Thousands   Will   Settle   In
Manitoba and the Territories.
C. E. MoPherson, general passenger
agent of the C. P. R., with headquarter at Winnipeg, was at the Phair
yesterday. Mr. Mclrherson has been
at the coast on an inspection tour and
is now making his way back to Winnipeg. In a cbat bad with him be
stated that Manitoba a.,d the Northwest Territories are having an old
fashioned boom as a result of the im-
meues wheat crop garnered there last
year. The desire to settle on the rich
lands there is greater than it ever was
in tbe history of tha section. A large
number of representatives of the farm
ers of North Dakota, Minnesota, Kan
sun and Nebraska have visited Manitoba and the territories in order to
look over the lands and ascertain on
what terms they could bo secured.
Tbe outlook is that the exodus from
these states to Canada tbis season will
be the largest yet witnessed.
Mr. McPherson stated that a few
fanners were coming into British
Columbia and some had already
settled on arable lands in East Kootenay. There were others coming to
settle in other parts of the province
but the number would be small compared with those wbo will go into
Manitoba and tbe territories.
Asked concerning the rumor that the
C.P.R. intended to put on a train that
would cross the continent in throe
days Mr. MoPhorson said it was a
mistake. On or about June 1st the
intention was to inaugurate a fa-t
transcontinental train which would be
run three times a week. The time
between Montreal and Vancouver
would be made in something less
than 100 hours. The train would only
stop at the larger cities. It was
intended to have the finest equipped
train on the continent and no expense
would be spared to make the journey
as pleasant us possible for the patrons
of tho road.
The tourist travel this year promised to be much larger than usual. In
the Rocky Mountains adjacent to tho
main Hue of the C. P. R. be said "we
have fourteen or fifteen Switzerland*.
We have mountains which arc more
difficult of access and are more
picturesque than any in the Swiss
republic. Tbey have been largely
advertised in Great Britain and elsewhere. Edward Wympher, tbe veteran
mountain climber and scientist,visited
our mountains and in his letters to
the papers he has called considerable
attention to them. The tourists who
climbed them are enraptured with
their grandeur, and say that the
mountains nf Switzerland cannot
compure with them in size or in
scenic beauty, and have told their
friends of tbeir wonders. As a result
we expect a very large number of
tourists during the coming summei."

Vancwyk, of Milwaukee, tbe baritone
singer, sang American songa after

Washington, Feb. 27.���As the prince
was about to start for tho capitol
today, an incident occurred showing
bis democratic manners. When he
came down the embassy stairway a
heavy set young man with German
features, pushed through the brilliantly nniformed tbrong and saluted
immediately in front of His Royal
Highness. The unexpected visitor,
Henry William Husohenberger, of
Baltimore, explained that he had
served for 17 months on the German
cruiser Irene while Prince Henrv com-
auded the ship. At considerable risk,
he had overcome all barriers and was
within the private quarters of the
embassy. The prince seemed to enjoy
the sailor's enthusiasm. He remembered his service and greeted him most
cordially.
Then His Royal Highness stepped into the waiting carriage and was
rapidly driven off preceded by the
cavalry escort. Instead of returning to
the German embassy in the Interval
between the memorial service and the
beginning of his trip to Mount Vernon, tho prince took his midday
luncheon in the room of the Senate
committee on military affairs, which
is a commodious apartment. The
luncheon was quite informal and was
partaken of standing bv all present.
Tw> tables were provided, ono of
them being the largo table used for
committee meetings and the other a
small table at the head of tlie room
at which it was expected His Royal
Highness would sit alone. He, however, declined this bonor and s'ood
with the other members of the company. In addition to the prince, the
luncheon party comprised tbe delegates appointed by the president to
escort him aud the members of the
prince's party, Ambassador Von llol-
lenben, the military and naval attaches of the German embassy, Frye,
president pro tern of the Senate, and
Speaker Henderson, of the House, and
Senator Foraker, and Representative
Grosvenor, chairman, respectively of
the Senate and House committees on
memorial services.
At tho conclusion of the luncheon,
the prince and his party were driven
to the station of tho Washington,
Mount Vernon and Alexandria railway, where tho> boarded a special
train for Mount Vernon to place tito
wreaths upon the tomb of Washington. Prince Henry approached the
grave of the first president with bared
bead, and that there might be nothing
irreverent in the ceremony, he asked
the holders of a ilo/.eii cameras who
stood around, to refrain from photographing bim.
Tbe prlnoe at tho conclusion of the
memorial services at thu capitol drove
directly to the special train. Two
largo observation cars were piovided
and from tbem tbe prince saw the
long bridgo und the headlunJs of
Northern Vlrginiu, historic to Americans since colonial days, lt was 2.30
o'clook when tho special train departed und thc run to Mount Vernon
occupied 55 minutes. Frinco Henry
walked to the Washington home ana
was driven from there, down the steep
hill to the tomb. When the iron gate
ot the tomb wus opened, hu removed
his cap and entered. Two large
wreaths mado at Washington by his
order, had already been sent to the
tomb and taking them up,' c formally
set them inside. A group of more
than a hundred men who stood in the
approach to thc grave, uncovered and
that with their silence, added to the
spirit of solemnity.
Fifty fuet down tho swnrd that falls
way fiom the tomb, Prince Henry
planted a linden tree. The tree hHd
been set in place prior to bis arrival
and taking a spude, the prince filled
tho curth in around its roots. Tlic
prince was tultuu to tbe old Washington houso by Supt. Dodge aud there
met a delegation of thu Mount Vernon
ladles' association, headed by Mr'.
Justin V. Townsend, oi Now York.
It was 4.30 o'olock when Washington w��s reached on the return trip
and tho prince was driven to tbo German embassy.

BURDENSOME EXACTIONS.
Owing to tbe low price of metals,
and the consequent hardships which
it entailed on the mining industry
during the past several months, there
has been a reduction in the price of
coke, a lowering in tbe transportation
charges on luel, and the smelting
charges have been cut down. All of
these reductions are commendable and
will be of benefit to the mining
industry. There is, however, a feeling
that tho royalty of two per cent,
levied on the gross output of the
mies, less the freight and treatment
charges, is too high, and not only is
it too high but it is inequitable in the
cases of low grade gold-copper ores
like most of those in tbe Uoundary
country and some of the product of
the Rossland camp. The margin of
profit is so small, in some instances,
tbat the royalty represents a larger
share than tbe government should be
equitably entitled to. There are instances where thu royalty has to be
paid out of losses which it serves to
make larger. This might happen in a
case like this: A company in the
course of its development work might
bave a second class dump containing
1,000 tons of ore. This ore cost say
$5 a ton to extract. It will give
smelter returns of $0 per ton, and it
can be tranported and treated for $.1
per ton. If it is left on the dump it
will represent a nut loss of $5 per ton
for extraction, but if smelted the loss
will be only $1, and nencu it is better
to have it transported and reduced.
The govonrment insists, however, on
getting the royalty en the products of
tlm ore on which there was an acutal
loss if the smelting, transportation
and mining charges are added
together.
The tendency in this province is to
exert too much paternalism ovor the
mining industry���too keep it in leading strings. Mining is yet in its infancy, a srong Child no doubt, but it
is hampered too much hy vexatious
tBxes and is paying more than its
share of the public burdens. Tbis fact
is well known in the larger monetary
centres and as a consequence capital
has almost entirely ceased to come
into the province for investment.
Capital bas the advantage of being
able to select itb own Held of investment and very little atttunion is paid
to boundary lines when it comes to
puttting money into mining ventures.
All thut investors desire to know is if
they can make u profit. All eountiies
are alike to them when this question
ie answered in the right way. This
being tlie ease and oilier things being
equal the investor ill mines will put
money into mines in a country Where
tho exactions are the lightest and the
royalty exacted by the government
tbe smallest.
This being tho cane the burdens
placed on thu miuing industry should
bo as light us the circumstances of the
province will penult. The royalty
should be reduced to the minimum,
In edition to this there are other taxes
wbich could be reduced to the betterment of the Induitry, The severe
penalties lor mere technical infractions of tbo laws, such us those provided for failure to make Certain reports, should bu abrogated. The capitalist vhould be invited to come uud
assist ln thu development of our vast
ininorul resources and be given a com
parativuly free hand.
llritish Columbia is admitted to be
one of tbu richest and largest mining
fields iu the world and, notwithstanding this fact, it is at present shunned
by capitalists. There must bo and
there is something radically wrong
when snch a condition of affairs exists
��� when so fair a field for tho miner
should for a cousideioble period bu
shunned by capital. Tho main cause
we believe is tbe exnetions of tho
mining laws. The legislature should
nt onco Institute reforms in tho laws
and restore to tho province its lost
prestige and reputation. One of tho
first things that needs amending is
the two per cent, royalty.
Four members of the city council
yesterday decided in favor of dismissing the charges of general incompetency against Thomas W. Lillie,
who was removed from the position of
chief of tbe fire department by the
late city oouncil. There was a dispo
sition shown in this case to take snap
judgment, and Mr. Drew is evidently
a swift judge and apparently had his
mind mado up as to how he was to
decide, for hu declared thai he did not
think it necessary to hear the evi
| deuce, lt was declared that it was
not necessary for a chief of the
fire department to know all the
details of buildings in tbls city Tni��
we believe is an essential requ I >���
ment in many cities and the head of
the department and some of bis subordinates are compelled to make it their
business to know tbe exitn, e franecs
and stairways in all the larger struct
ures so that they may be better able to
right fires in sucb bnildings. Mayor
Fletcher says that his chief objection
to Mr.Lillie as head of the fire depart
ment is because ho considers him to
be not thoroughly efficient.
If there is one official more than
an-ther who should be thoroughly
efficient it should be tbe chief of the
fire department. There are times
when if such an official is not compe
tent and does not understand his business that great losses are caused. If
the four members favored Mr. Lillie
simply for personal reasons aud without any regard to his fitness for the
position of thu head of the department
tney did that which will, not meet
with the approval of the public. The
fire department must have,at_its head
an efficient and competent man.
The four members showed themselves to be inconsistent. They favored the alleged exoneration of Mr.
Lillie, they declared, because he was
dismissed without an investigation.
On the other hand Dr. LaRau was removed from the place of health officer
without nuking either charges or investigation. This savors of a carrying out of pre-election pledges on the
part of men wbo posed during the last
city campaign as ''independents.''
LIBERTY'S TORCH IS OUT.
By order of the chairman of tbe
United Status Light House board, the
light on the statue of Liberty enlightening the world has been discontinued. This statue wus presented to
the United States by M. Bartholdi, a
Parisian, and was unveiled on October
26th, 188(5. Since then,for a period of
15 yeais and four months, a light has
been uaictainua tho statue. At the
time of the unveiling Grover Cleveland was piesident of the United
States and tbe ceremonies attending it
wero made the occasion of a great
public demonstration which was participated in by thousands. Mr. Cleveland among other things, during the
speech he made on that occasion, said:
"Wo are not met to bow before a
severe and warlike God, but to honor
our own peaceful Deity,keeping watch
and ward over the gates of America.
And here it is that Liberty has her
altars, and their fires will be kept
alivo by willing votaries. Dor light
will gleam as a beaccn to our sister
peoples of the East, and shall penetrate the darkness of man's oppression
until Liberty shall in truth enlighten
thu world.'1
A Yankee wit aftei viewing the
statuo with tbo light uplifted, declared that it reminded him of a
comely farmer's wife with her candle
held alott standing in tbe door and
peering into the darkness to see if the
cows had come home.
Thc statuo is in darknoss because
it costs about |6,000 a year to maintain the electric light plant that
furnished lhe lights of 7,000 candle
power needed for the torch. The cost
of maintaining this grew burdenome
on the liirht house board and its discontinuance has buen ordored.
This is why Liburty has ceased to
enlighten the world, and Bartholdi's
splendid gift will no longer be on
exhibition after tbe sun goes down
and darkness spreads over tbu vicinity
of llcdloo's Island, on which thu
I statue Is located. Can it be possible
I that tbu ilrus of Americiin patriotism
aiu growing ccld? Can it be that
Cleveland'* willing votaries havo become tired of koeping up thu fires?

Alex Sharp, M. E., superintendent
for the First Thought Gold Mines,
limited,was at the Phair last evening.
Mr. Sharp came in last night from
Colville, where he has been for the
past nine days in attendance on the
Superior court, where the ease of of the
Spokane Mining Investment Co. vs.
the First Thought Gold Mines,
limited, has been on trial during that
period. The plaintiff corporation
claimed the three claims which constitute the First Thought group on an
alleged prior location and defaults.
The iury, however, decided the case
in favor of the defendants, the First
Thought company. The property in
dispute is estimated to be worth
$500,000 and about $200,000 has been
expended in developing it. itruce
White, of this city, brother of Byron
N.White, of Spokane, is tho principal
owner of the First Thought. Mr.
Sharp leaves today for Vancouver in
the interest of his eompany.
Jay P. Graves, vice-president and
general manager of the Granby Consolidated Mining, Smelting and
Power Co., who has been in the oity
for the past two dHys on a business
visit, leaves for Spokane today. To a
Miner reporter he stated that the thiru
furnace in tbe smeltei of the company at Grand Forks had been blown
in, and that 1,100 tons of oro per day
was being reduced. In about two
weeks the fourth furnace should be in
operation and then the daily quantity
reduced would be 1,500 tons. The
copper converter, be said, was doing
excellent work, and last week 228
tons of blistered copper was shipped
from it. The converter was now treating matte from the Greenwood. Grand
Forks, Nelson and Van Anda smelters. The output of blistered copper
this year, he said, would be large.

FIRE CHIEF REINSTATED.
Investigation Yesterday Developed
Into Mere Bandying of Words.
A special meeting of the oity
council was held yesterday afternoon
to "enquire into matters affecting the
city's fiie department and the reasons
wbich led to the dismissal of the late
ohief of the Are brigade, T. W. Lillie,
by the council of 1901." All the members of the council were present, and
also Mr. Lillie, who was accopmanied
Dy his solioitor, S. S. Taylor. The
mayor read a list oi tbe charges on
which the chief had been dismissed
which were as follows:
1. Persistent refusal to obey orders.
2. Neglect of duties. 3. Not working
together amicably with other city
officials. 4. That the brigade had not
been brought up to the state of efficiency that the amount of money spent
on it during tho past year warranted.
On motion of Aid.Scanlan, seconded
by Aid. Irving, it was decided that
the charges should be gone into clause
by clau.se and that Mr, Lillie should
be given the opportunity to reply to
them anil also that he could be represented by Mr. Taylor as well.
The mayor stated that he had instructed Mr. Lillie on several occasions to examine the yards of the city
and see that no inflammable matter
was allowed to aconmulat;, and to see
t'uat merchants kept the back of their
premises clean and did not allow noe.u-
mulations of paper and boxes, etc.,
there. He found that this had not
been attended to by the fire chief from
his own personal observation. When
he asked Mr. Lillie about it he waB
referred to the scavenger as Mr. Lillie
did not consider it his dnty, A lire
occurred at the back of the Houston
block from tbis cause and there wero
complaints made bv thc fire insurance
inspectors regarding it.
Aid. Irving said that the fire in
question bad occurred through thu
throwing out of hot ashes.
Some warm discussion took place
here as to tho duties ot tho fire chief
and the reading of the bylaw by
which the conduct of the chief is supposed to be governed did not quiet
things, the mayor interpreting it ono
way and Aid. Drew, Irving, Morrison
and Scanlan another.
Aid. Sclanlan asked if over it was
clearly understood by the fire chief
tbat the mayor wished him to make
snch inspection.
Mayor Fletcher said that it had
been s) understood
Aid. Drew���After you found that it
had not been attended to did you refer
t to the counoil. 1
Mayor Fletchei���I did not consider
it necessary, I was acting in a sense
aa executive for thc council.
Ala. Drew���I move that tho first
charge be dismissed.
Mr. Tavlor bore rose and said thnt
as regards this first charge he would
read the bylaw relating to the duties
lif the chief.   He did this laying stress
on the fact that there was no mention
of the inspection of the baok of
premises such as the mayor had
spoken of. He also pointed out that
to make suoh an inspection frequently
would necessitate tbe absence of the
fire chief from the fire hall for a considerable portion of the time, which
would probably prevent his being
present quioHy at a fire if one
occurred. Thre duties of a fire chief
were laid down in   the   bylaw.
Mr. Lillie stated that he had obeyed
tbe instructions of the mayor and that
in regard to keeping the premises
clear of rubbish he had done all in his
power. As it was there were some of
the merchants who would not speak
to him on the street just because he
had been so persistent in   this matter.
Considerable feeling was displayed
botween tho mayor and several of the
aldermen as the meeting went on and
after some questions asked the mayor
by Mr. Taylor, the former wished to
have W. G. Gillette and J. Paterson
Who were present give some evidence
in the matter, they having been members of tho committee which first
investigated the charges against the
chief. This was objected to by Aid.
Drew who said that he did not see the
neecessity of calling in any outside
evidence. So far as the mallei had
gone he could not see that there was
anything in any of the charges that
had been brought up.
lhe first clause was finally disposed
of. On the second charge Mayor
Fletcher stated that he did not consider Mr. Lillie was as conveisant
with the buildings of the city as he
should be, In support of this he asked
him a number of questions. On the
question as to whether M. Lillie was
familiar or not with several buildings
that were taken as instances, warm
words arose between the mayor and
Mr. Taylor, the latter holding that to
have the knowledge of the buildings
in the city that the mayor seemed to
ask, was impossible.
The mayor wished to call on Mr.
Gillette again but this was objected to
by Aid. Scanlan who said if witnesses
were to be called by the mayor against
Mr. Lillie that it would be only right
to allow the other time to get witnesses also.
The discussion waxed warmer and
warmer and the mayor finally said
that he did not see any use in continuing it. The members had evidently made up their minds ou the
matter and that was to reinstate tlie
chief as it had been common street
talk before the election that they
would do so- If this was the ease
there was not the slightest use in
making a pretense of an investigation.
Ad. Irivng,Scanlan, Drew and Morrison objected strongly to tllis and said
that no t>ueh promise had been ever
made by them and that they had never
been approached by Mr. Lillie in the
matter. They also objected strongly
to tbe remark of the raaycr that they
had pre-judgod the oase. Aid. Drew
said that to discharge a man from a
position, as had been done with the
fireohief, with no definite chargos
against him was not right.
Mayor Fletoher���No, is it not?
Well, you gentlemen who are so
urgent in the matter did not hesitate
to discharge the eity health officer
without preferring charges against
him, or giving him any chance to
explain.
On motion of Aid. Drew seconded
by Aid. Irving it was deoided that the
charges against the ex-chief had not
Been sustained.

TOURIST ASSOCIATION.
W
A. Jowett Says it Would Acora-
plish Wonders For Nelson.
The idea of the formation of a
touriBt association for the purpose of
attracting poople to Nolson Is meeting
with great approval. W. A Jowett
in speaking about the matter yesterday slid; "lam heaitily in acoorl
with the idea and think a tourist
association would prove a very useful
institution. Now is the time to inaugurate it as we will immediately
want thc pamphlets ano statistics prepared. These should be ready in time
to forward to the exhibition to be
hold by tho Colonies in the royal
exchange in Juno noxt. Many thousands of visitors, who otherwise we
would have no chance of reaching,
can be got at at tbat exhibition. I
know two Englishmen who went to
the American Rockies in order to
shoot big game and tneir oxpenses
while so engaged were something like
$3,000, which money was left in payment of packers, guides and hotel
bills. This money wns of immediate
benofit to the section visited. There
are thousands of Englishmen who
take their outings in July, August
and September. Ii thoy had reliable
information as to tlio facilities in this
country for hunting and fishing many
of them would come here in preference to going to other countries.
There are also many ardent sportsmen
in the large cities cf the states to
whom money is no object and all they
want   is to   be   satisfied that they can

thing for the country as besides enjoying hunting, fishing and boating,
they would make investments in real

pictorial postal cards should be
printed, containing views ot
scenery and announcements of
prolific hunting grounos and
splendid fishing. Besides thiB
velopes containing similar announce
ments should be used bv tho loading
firms. They should contain sueb
statements as 'Nelson iB tbe centre of
the Kootenays,haa around it a countrv
that is replete with game and fish.'
besides this advertisements should be
inserted in tbe local and other news
papers. This advertising matter
should be distributed far and wide. It
is in tbe nature of seed planted and
would boar a bounteous harvest of
benefits for Nelson. The tourists
association should be immediately
formed and with an energetic executive its ends and aims should bo pushed with vigor. Tho outcome, in my
opinion, would be mott beneficial not
only to Nelson but to tlio Kootenay

Dr. Laing haB for many   years been
one of tbe leading   cltrgymen   in   the
Presbyterian   church   in Canada, taking   an   active part in the   governing
bodies   of   the   church   and   on committees of the general   assembly.     In
that church he may be called an eccles-
tic lawyer and among   the   works   by
which be will be   remembered is what
is called the "Blue Book," which contains the forms of procedure and regulations of the Presbyterian   church in
Canada, which   is   almost   altogether
his compilation.
He was born in East Ross,   Sco'land,
in 1828,and was educated in the Edinburgh   academy   and later at   King's
College, now Toronto University.    As
a condition uf  graduating   from   that
college then was the signing of the 119
articles, bis religious belief would not
allow   him   to do that so he took   his
degree of 3.A. from   Victoria university in 1853,    and   afterwards had thu
degree of M. A. conferred   on  him by
that college.     His first charge was in
Scarborough   where   he was  ordained
in 1854,and in 1850 he was transferred
to the pastorate   of   the  Presbyterian
ohurch in   Cobourg.     In 1871 he gave
up that charge to act as agent   of  thc
Endowment   committee   of  Enox college   and   in   1874 he  was  appointed
principal   of   tbe   Ladies college,   of
Ottawa.    He retrained there  only one
year when he was   called   to   Dundas
where he was stationed up to the time
of Wb doath,   though for the past foul
years    he    has     had     an     assisant
pastor. He has been clerk of the Presbytery   of   Hamilton since   1875, and
was moderator of the synod of Toronto
and Hamilton in 1877.    In 18U0 he had
the highest honor   in the bestowal   of
the     church   oonferred     upon     him,
namely, unanimous election as moderator of the   General   Assembly.     The
degree of Doctor ot   Divinity was conferred  npon  him by  Rutger's college
of New Jersey.
In Presbyterian circles he will be
remembered by hiB good work as convener of tne Home Mission committee
of tbo Ueneral Assembly for many
years, for the compilation of the Blue
Book, for his part in the discussion of
religion in the schools and for his
stand in the attitude of the church
toward total abstinence. On the latter
question he was one of a small minority who strenously fought the resolution in the Ueneral Assembly enjoining total abstinence on members of
the churoh. Be was a regular contributor to the Toronto Globe and the
Toronto Mail and the publications
of the denomination.

GOLD AND EMERALDS.
Expedition Forming to Drain Sacred
Lako  of Colombia.
London, Feb. 27.���Several members of parliament have formed a
syndicate to recover the jewels and
gold in the sacred lake in Colombia
South America, whioh is formed in
the crater of an extinct volrano olese
to tbe emerald mines
Humboldt speaks of emeralds deposited iu that lake worth billions of
pounds, and Indians continue to find
stones and gold by the water's edge
after storms The Spaniards made
efforts to drain the lake 300 years ago,
but their engineering appliancas were
defective. The present syndicate is
attacking tbe lake from beneath its
basin. A tnnnel has been cut and a
shaft will be made to tap the lake,
with screens to catch any stones that
may be dislodged and riffles of mercury to arrest the gold.
LIGHT IS MERCHANDISE.
Important Decision as to Electric
Light Monopolies.
Ottawa, Feb. 27.���Tbe ease of the
Hull Electric company vs. the Ottawa
Electric company, Hull oity intervening, has been dismissed by the
Judicial committee of the Privy
council with costs.
In the first court the judge held that
lighting being a merchandise, the
resolution of the Hull council giving
exclusive rights for the lighting of the
city to the Hull Electric company was
ultra vires. The case was appealed
from court to court, with the foregoing result.
When the Hull company received its
charter, the Ottawa company, which
had provioui ly been established in the
city, was ordered to remove its poles
and wires from the streets, and it was
then tbat the city intervened. By
this decision the city practically
shares in the victory, as under tho
resolution of the council even the city
would not have the right to its own
system oi lighting, tho Hull company
having received exclusive rights.

Herpicide is Death to Dandruff Germs.
Tbe perm burrows into the scalp,
throwing up the cutiole in thin scales,
called dandruff, or scurf, and dignis
nt the root of the hair where it saps
the hair's vitality. First comes brit-
tlo hair, thon lnslerless and dead-like
hair, then falling hair and finally
bnldnesss. Nine-tenths of tbe hair
troubles are caused by dandruff,
Without dandruff, hair will grow luxuriantly, as nutuie Intended. "Herpicide" kills the dandruff germ leaving the hair to grow unbampered, us
it docs with the American red man.
