"Assuming the chairmanship of the

Alderman Kellington, Henley and
Mayor Gray were the members, at the
beginning of the year, I went very
carefully Into the affairs of the department; we prepared our estimates
for the year and presented them to
the council. We found out how much
money was left of the 1912 Street bylaw, what streets and work was unfinished that was in the 1912 program,
what contracts were let for pavements,

Capetown, Jan. 12.���Quiet prevails
throughout South Africa tonight, but
this may be the lull before the storm,
as Incoming ballots from various centers make It practically certain that
a general strike will be voted. Ballots received from the miners along
the reef favor a strike and the various
trades, including the shop assistants,
warehouse men and clerks in Johannesburg have voted similarly.
Grows More Serious.
The feeling is growing in Johannesburg that the situation is becoming more serious. The Capetown harbor workers have been officially called
out by the union, but their response
will not be known until tomorrow.
A ballot by the Johannesburg branch
of 'the Typographical union has resulted by a large majority in favor of a
strike. This probably means that the
people of Johannesburg will have no
newspapers tomorrow.
If a general strike is called It will
be out of sympathy for the strike of
the railway employees, many of whom
have   abandoned    their    posts.    The
strike of the railway men is said to be
due to the policy of retrenchment put
Into effect by the South African railway  administration,  ln  pursuance  ol
which hundreds of employees in Pretoria,    Bloemfontein,    Durban,    Salt
River and  elsewhere have been dismissed.
The strikers demand tbe cessation
of this policy of retrenchment and the
reinstatement of the dismissed men.
They argue that the administration's
real motive is to force wages down.
as shown by the fact that some of
the dismissed men have been offered
other billets at reduced wages.
Mobilize Troop*.
The most hopeful feature of the
situation tonight Is the extraordinary
success attending the mobilization of
troops. It is estimated that there are

TUESDAY  MORNING, JANUARY   13,   1914.
��      AID TO SETTLERS.
A feature of the report of the land settlement committee of the Vancouver board of trade which will be submitted to the board meeting in the Terminal City will be a
recommendation to the effect that the government give financial aid to settlers on British Columbia land.
At least two reasons present themselves as arguments in favor of the adoption by the authorities at Victoria of such a policy. One is that the excessively high
cost of living in the west demands that extra efforts be
made by the government to increase the number of food
producers and the other is that a similar policy already
in operation in Australia has proved an immense success
and no doubt is taking from British Columbia many new
settlers who would make their homes here and become
valuable citizens if they were offered like advantages.
With the present trend of population towards the
larger centres and away from the land, something will
have to be done soon to make farming attractive to those
who understand it. Assistance to a man who knows nothing of agriculture would be money wasted, but it seems
as though an extra effort will have to be put forth to ensure the remaining on the land of those who are able to
get results from it. The provincial government's policy
of good roads and widespread railway development is
making farming in British Columbia a simpler problem
with every passing year, but there is something else needed, an actual inducement to get the right kind of men, particularly young men, to stay with the farm. The agricultural industry never offered chances of greater profit than
it does today, but the ever present lodestone of city life is
proving too much for many and to counteract this the
government faces the absolute necessity of a move to
popularize farming life among those who are competent
to take it up.

Taxes are a superior lien upon all mortgaged property. Heal
estate may be sold for taxes,
leaving the careless holder of a
bond and mortgage with no security. Insurance may be allowed to lapse; then, should a
fire occur'the mortgage holder
has only the bare ground security. Methodical attention
absolutely averts these dangers.
The maker of the mortgage

Major Gray's stand en the liquor
question is clear and emphatic, but
the same cannot be said of bis opponent, Mr. Johnston, for he has not yet
made any definite announcement, and
is not likely to do so. As a candi-
ate and a critic, Mr. Johnston should
be ready to declare his policy clearly
and emphatically, and not attempt to

WHAT   MAYOR   GRAY   SAID.
Mayor Gray justilied the use of
money borrowed from the sinking
fund of the city deposited in the savings bank account and drawing ,'J per
cent, on the ground that this had always been done, and that special circumstances during the past year had
made it necessary. Some municipalities were paying as high as 4 per
cent, on short term loans. He was
prepared to defend this course as
good business tor the city.
"Work 1 as been done by the council suppo.Led by Colonel Taylor with
a view U securing a government elevator, ae-l we have been assured of
success ii this matter." The harbor
scheme, said the mayor, was the
scheme of the citizens of New Westminster, it was authorized by the
citizens and would, more than anything else e.i'i re the development of
the  Praser river.
C   N. R. Plans.
"The council had taken the precaution to lodge with tho provincial gov-
ernnnnt and with the railway commissioners, a protest against the san-
lioning of any plans of the C. N. R.
until tbe views of the council had
been personally placed before the
heads oi that corporation. We want
to k'Bow what the C. N. R. propose to
give the city, und then we will til'
theni what we propose to have.''
(Cheers.)
Moral  Reform.
Among other matters the mayor
touched at some length upon his action in connection with the segregation question. The remedy proposed
by him had been applied. The
churches had co-operated by doing
their part, and. after a noble effort
to save the girls, the law had been
enforced and the result was a complete disappi arance of this district
from  the city.
Alderman Kellington, chairman of
the iuiance committee, received with
a hearty round of cheers, expressed
the hope that they would never have
another year like 1913. At the beginning of that year everything looked
rosy for the selling of the bonds,
(Laughter! A few months went by
and Mayor Gray himself and other
members of tbe finance committee
made up their minds that the future
requited careful scrutiny and consideration, it New Westminster was
going to take the situation it de-
seryeH, They called all the chairmen
of me different committees of the
council and explained the situation as
the> understood it at the time, that
they old not expeci to sell the bonds
imiil the fall if 1014 at any rate, and
thul it would be ruinous to spend the
bylaw money voted.

J. J. JOHNSTON   REMARKS.
Apart from a few remarks qualifying his statement regarding the
Eraser river made at the Sapperton
[meeting Mr. Johnston reserved Ihe
bulk cf his speech for his own supporters tomorrow night. Incidentally
he threatened to produce a few skeletons from  the closet.
Wrong End First.
In explaining bis position on the
harbor work he said the cart had
been placed before the horse and
since in this a harbor commissioner,
whom he did not name, agreed with
him; therefore there must be some
truth ln it.
No   Sentiments.
As far as tin* moral question went
Mr. Jolinstoi) would have no sentiment m dealing with the fallen
women.
Touching on financial matters, Mr.
Johnston paid Mayor Gray a testimonial. "Tin* council of 1913 has
done as well as could be dene under
the circumstances,"  he said.

Some of the supporters of J. J.
Johnston are attempting to make
capital mil of the recent granting of
bottling licenses by the license commission, of which Mayor Gray is
chairman, in spite of tin* fact that
the* mayor voted against the motion.
When he opposid these licenses
Mayor Gray was following out his
usual policy, for his whole career in
the city ball, both as alderman and
mayor, has been strongly against the
increase of the liquor traffic.
While acting mayor In 1912, Alderman Gray sat on the board of license
commissioners at the meeting which
Increased tin* hotel licenses from $200
to $400 per annum. The motion tor
this increase came from Alderman
Kellington, and was later ratified by
the council.
None in Residential  Districts.
Strong opposition to tin* establishment of licensed hotels in tin* residential Bectlon has always been
shown by Mayor Gray. Alderman Kell
ii ir ton and his colleagues on the
council, Lasl year two petitions were
circulated and widely sign, d, praying
for a liquor license in Sapperton,

Here are a few good reasons advanced by leading citizens who arn
strongly In favor of returning Mayor
A. W. Gray and the retiring aldermen
tu oltice for another term:
N. H. McQuarrie.
I think tin* mayor has been a faith-
lul chief executive. He is a careful
man. quiet and unassuming. His
hcnorH have not swelled his bead. He
has bad 'lie general confidence of the
citizens, and his record in an uncommonly hard year speaks for Itself.
There is only one way to Judge a man,
and that is by what he has done.
Mayor Gray has redeemed his promises and that makes his word reliable.
H. Knudsen.
As an old resident 1 would like to
record my satisfaction with the ad
ministration of Mayor Gray during
the past year. As a labor man��l have
been pleased to see the mayor giving
his support to those measures initiated by labor. In this support the
mayor has a consistent record both as
mayor and as alderman, and has always shown practical sympathy both
with laboring men and labor problems, 'lhe citizens should endorse
him  for another term.
John Langan (Coquitlam).
I have watched with considerable
interest the workings of the various
councils In the surrounding districts
during the past year and I feel that
under the existing financial conditions
tbe New Westminster council has.
done excellent work and that It is to
tiie best interests of the citizens to
return a council that are not only
filly competent but are In touch with
everything which will be to the advantage of the city.
Alderman Henley.
I have    been    many    years    in    the
council with the present mayor when
he   was an  alderman.    I   have  no'eil
how he has grown to his responsibilities.    It  is coming to the  mayor    io
have  a  chance  under improved  conditions and he will still further justify
the  confidence  reposed  In  him.    His
record Is a good one, and the city in
cleaner and  better as a result  of his
Iable and conscientious services
Engineer H. C. Brice.

, bor scheme and the work now  being
done,  in Captain  Powell  we have an
engineer who stands high in his pro-

have the fullest confidence. The work
Is  being  done  well and as economically as possible,  so far as my observation  goes.    It  Is  easy   for  the  lay
mind to unjustly criticize engineering
work.
Ex Alderman Fred J. Lynch.
Mayor Gray has made a good record

has shown the value of his experience
in city affairs.    He is consistent and
conscientious, His integrity cannot
for a moment be doubted. Ile ba.*

advancement. The careful handling
if the finances during the past year
has met the financial situation properly and to the city's advantage.
There is no good reason why he
.should not be returned for

W.  H.  Keary.
"Gray is certainly deBen
second term because of the *
showing he has made under disadvantageous circumstances. He has shown
himself unafraid and I do not believe
his stand on various questions will
prejudice his chances in the least. Tie*
voter swill, no doubt, compare Johnston's record as an alderman with
that of Gray, and decide that the
mayor is the better man. One can always depend en Gray taking a d ti

Aid. Walter Dodd.
"(in Monday evening, ai the ratepayers' annual meeting in tie* Op rn

Aid.   A.   E.   Kellington.
"A. W, Gray has been mayor of

We are continually hearing from
grateful people who have had experiences like that cf Miss Alice E. Cooper,
of Niagara Falls, Out., who writes:
��� I wish to express my gratitude to
yen for the benefit I received from your
most wonderful Dy.'pepsia Tablets.
Having taken other medicines without
having received the slightest relief, I
heard of your Na-Dru-Co Dyspepsia
Tablets anil thought I would give them
a trial. I have been completely cured
of dyspepsia, I will be only too pleased
to advise any one troubled with dyspepsia
to give them a fair trial "
Na-Dru-Co Dyspepsia Tablets not only
give the immediate relief from heartburn, flatulence, acidity of the stomach
and biliousness, whichissomuch needed,
but if taken regularly for a few days or
weeks they completely cure the most
ac^ravatcd ca'.es of Stomach trouble.

would that they should do unto you,
and the aim of the local council is to :
'jring    the    various    associations    of
wdmen in the city into closer relation,.
through  an    organized    union;     thus
serving  as  a  medium  of  communica-'
<ion and a means of prosecuting any
work of common interest.    New West-
minster has a  local    council    of    24
affiliated societies and 800  members .
Six  new  societies were affiliated this
���ear. During the past year there have,
been    ten    regular   meetings,    eleven
executive meetings,  two  special    and;
throe drawing room meetings.
At tin* beginning of the year standing committees were formed as follows:
Education, objectionable literature,
moral reform, laws, care of feeble
minded, Y. W. C. A., domestic science,
health, Immigration, press and
finance. Conservation of resources
waa added later, with conveners who
have worked well and have accoin-
pllshed much for the betterment of
our city.
In March lhe local council was ask-i
ed to assist with Kermiss in aid ef.
���he hospital and responded very gen-1
erously with articles for sal-. Tin |
ladies of the council during this j
mouth also collected $1000 for the V.'

with   tin*   .May   I lay   celebration   with
I Mrs. Phillips as convener of commit-
I tee;  and May  Day of 1913  was voted
! the best ever held.
In   June   the  council   was  asked   by
the   it.  A.   <��.-   I.   society   lo  support
better babies' contest, of which    the
convener,  Mrs.  Walker,  will  report.
During July the council assisted thi
Y. W. c. A. nt iin* merchants' picnic
and  r.-ceived $35 for same.
Al the time of the exhibition the
council had charge of the tea rooms
and cleared $228.15. A room will be
furnished in ihe hospital with this
money known as the I.. C. room.
The council notwithstanding the
hard times collected  $1263.15 in  1913.

SOME people sit around and hum
The while they hopq^and trust
That opportunity may coma
And on them fortune thrust,
And it may happen, don't you know,
To these same hopeful chaps
Once in a. thousand yefirs or so
And oftener, perhaps.
Hy rule luck does not run along.
Nor does It stop on call,
For sometimes when it should be strong
it Isn't there ut all.
At other moments when a lad
Seems from It far apart
It comes along to make him glad
And warm Ins weary heart.
Of course tho safer way is not
To wait for it to coino
And hand you out a corner lot
And bo your little chum.
It's hotter on tho Job to stick
Or freeze to some good trade.
Tou may without It turn the triclc
And ho your own tirst aid.
That method does not seem to please
Some persons you n ay know.
They'd rather live a lite of ease
And watch Iho lilies grow.
And If tl'.ey strike It, well and good,
But if the world goes wrong
They wouldn't think "f sawing wood
To help their luck along,

COQUITLAM MUNICI-
:   : PALITY :
Ladles and Gentlemen:
Your vote and influence
solicited for Reeve in the
election to be held on Saturday,
January 17, 1914.
My platform will be:
Retrenchment and economy
during the prevalence of the
present stringency as far us
computable  with progress -
A liberal policy towards all
large enterprises such as I!. C.
E. It., extension, etc.���
Referendum to the electors
on all important questions, employment of local labor, and
square  treatment  all  round.
most   rigid   economy   consistent   with
efficiency has been practised by the
i board of 1918.    For evidence take the
tent   school   at   Broadview;   the   fact
that the building erected  for a  manual   training   school    at     Vancouver
Heights is instead  being used  to ac-
j commodate two classes and even then
j it was found necessary to again purchase a tent school and erect It as this
! point; ct Inman avenue school a lady
; teacher with 57 pupils in seven classes
in one room. (Think of it ye mothers
who  are   worried   into  nervous   prcs-
[traton by two or three children.)    Let
! those who wish to pass strictures upon
the board  first make a round of the
schools and see for themselves. There
surely is not much of the spirit of a ;
man in one who lias nothing but abuse
to return for good work well done and '
he one of the beneficiaries.    It is of
no consequence to me since in one:
will expire, j
read'*rs as may be interested, as to
various statements being made by Ignorant or malicious person:; regarding
Burnaby school boaj-.il affairs.
Charges of extravagance anil mismanagement are made from even the
public platform, but never in any
single instance by a man who has
taken the trouble to call upon or write
to our secretary to ascertain the ae-
tual facts. The "campaign He" Is getting to be rega-j-ilod as a joke, or an
indication of smartness, even though
it may reflect upon the ability ami integrity of public spirited ictizens who j week my term as trustei
may have given years of gratuitous , but I cannot let the occasion pas.*

this point to record my protest against
this distorted marvel of modern
ethics; this disgusting running sore
upon the body politic 'lie political
^pell-binder or campaign evarlcator.
Surely if, as we often do, prefer the
bonk to the author because the book
or essay is a concise, clear, readable,
���j.evlseii statement of the author's
vi*ews, so should platform utterances
be a truthful, revised enunciation of
the speaker's views or case, It would
seem almost necessary these days that
the preliminary to a political atldress
-.in r,:d be the administration of the
satb to "sp-ak the truth, the whol:
:ruth and nothing but tbe truth."
I netrl not trespass upon your courl-
ssy by going into actual figures, since
the council's annual statement will be
in your hands in a few days, but it is

Jack Bryson,
A banquet was held, at which there
were entertained by the ladles of the
local council of women, his worship
the mayor and the city council.
Following are the reports submitted
by the retiring president. Mrs. W. A.
Patchell, and the retiring correspond
ing secretary, Miss Margaret K.
Strong:
President's  Address.
Believing that the    more    intimate
knowledge of one another's work will
result  in larger mutual sympathy and
greater  unity   of   thought   and   therefor in  mere effective action,    certain
associations of women  interested    in
philantbrophy,      religion.     education,1
.'literature,  art. and  social  reform,  determined  to organize  local    councils
with the motto do unto others as ye,
would that they should do unto you, |
and the aim of the local council is to
bring    the    various    associations    of
wdmen in the city into closer relation, |
through an    organized    union;    thus
serving as  a  medium  of communica-'
'ion and a  means of prosecuting any
work of common interest.    New Westminster has  a   local    council    cf    24
ati'iliated societies  and  800  members
���six new societies  were affiliated this
year, During the past year there have |
been    ten    regular    meetings,    eleven
executive meetings,  two  special    and
three drawing room meetings.
Al. the beginning of the year stand-
ing committees were formed as follows:
Education, objectionable literature,
moral reform, laws, care of feeble
minded, Y. W. C. A., domestic science,
health, Immigration, press and
finance. Conservation of resources
was added later, with conveners who
have worked well and have accomplished much for tiie betterment of
our city.
in March the local council was ask- |
ed to assist with Kermiss In aid 1 f
���he hospital and responded very gen-j
erously with articles for sale. Th. 1
ladies of the council during this j
month also collected $1000 lor Hi.' V.'
W. C, A. and the V. W. was organized
on April 5.
For the lirst. time tin* council helped
j with   tin*   May   Day   celebration   with
I Mrs. Phillips as convener of commit-
tee;  and May  Day of  1913  was  voted
; the* best ever held.
In June the council was asked by
Ilie R. A. & I. society to support B
better babies' contest, of which the
convener, Mrs.  Walker, will repoi".
During July the council assisted tin
Y W. ('. A. ut ih<* merchants' picnic
nnd received $3C for same.
At the time of ihe exhibition the
council had charge of the tea rooms
and cleared $228.15. A room will be
furnished in the hospital with this
money known as the I.. C. room.
The council notwithstanding the
hard times collected $1263.15 in 1913.
i in October a linen committee was
appointed to provide linen table
cloths for tea tables during fair time,
i Mrs. Gilley is convener of this committee.
in closing my report I wish to
thank thi* cot responding nnd recording secretary for their great assistance, during  the year, and city coun
moral reform, of education. of
benevolence, etc., our organization
has spoken and not without result.
The courtesy with which we have
been met in our efforts for public improvement has been most marked,
and I wish to lake this opportunity
for thanking the members of the press
for the generous publicity thry have
given our meetings and work; also
the city council and other public
bodies who have received communications from us and replied to them
wilh consideration.
For my successor in office t can
only wish as much pleasure and pro-
tit from the work as 1 myself have
received and I herewith submit the
report of our year's efforts.

That opportunity may como

Anil it may happen, don't you know.
To those saint* hopeful chaps
Once in a thousand yours or no
And oftener, perhaps. ���
By rule luck does not run along,
Nor dees It stop on call,
For sometimes Wben it should be strong
It Isn't there at all.
At other moments when a lad
iaeems from it far apart
It comes along to make him glad
And wain) his weary heart.
Of course the safer way Is not
To wait for it to como
And hand you out a corner lot
And be your little chum.
It's better on the lob to stick
in freeze to some good trade.
You may without It turn the trick
And bo your own lust aid.
That method does not seem to please
Seme persons you may know.
They'd rather live a life of ease
And watch the lilies i;row,
And If they strike It, well and good,
Hut If the world goes wrong
They wouldn't think of sawing wood
To help llielr luck along.

The Finding of Omar.
It was the late Mr. Bernard Qua-
rltch's father who published FitzGcr-
ald's "Omar," and, finding that the
thin? didn't sell, he relegated it to the
penny box. Its subsequent success
wus due to a fortunate accident Two
friends of Rossetti came across the
jioem nnd thought it worth rending.
Kossetti read It and recommended it
to Swinburne. What followed Swinburne has himself told. ''Having read
IL" he writes, '.'Rossetti and I invested
upward of sixpence apiece���or possibly threepence; I would not wish to exaggerate our extravagance���In copies
at that not exorbitant price. Next
day we thought wc might gut some
more for presents among our friends,
hut the man at the stall asked twopence! Rossetti expostulated with him
in terms of such humorously indignant
remonstrance its none but he could
���ever have commanded. We took a few
nnd left him In a week or two, If 1
am not much mistaken, the remaining
��*opies wi-re sold nt a guinea. 1 have
since ��� ��� ��� seen copies offered for still
more absurd prices. I kept my pennyworth (the tidiest of the loti und bave
it still."���London Chronicle.
CIVIC FATHERS TELL
RATEPAYERS WHAT COUNCIL
DID DURING PAST YEAR
(Continued  from Page Five.)
Twelfth Century Football.
In the twelfth century football in
Euglund was a game for the streets.
The chronicler of that period tolls how
after dinner the city youths "addressed themselves to football." nnd how
the scholars of each school and the
apprentices of particular trades would
each have their peculiar ball. There
were spectators, too. in those days���
enthusiastic spectators. Fathers would
���come to watch their sons and "become
���as youthful as the youngest, their natural heat seeming to be revived at the
sight of so nmch ability."
In later years one recalls a famous
ball game played in Il.vde park. In
1054. then, "there wns n hurling of a
great ball by fifty Cornish gentlemen
on one side and fifty on the other. One
party played in red caps, the other in
white." Aud-here the historical value
of the confest���Cromwell was a spectator and applauded the "great agility
of body" displayed.
Aldine Editions.
The introduction of the sloping Roman letters which are known to everybody as italics was made by Aldus
Mauntlus of Venice In the latter p.-.rt
of the fifteenth century, rie was the
most famous prinler of Italy nnd perhaps of tbe world. The books lie
printed, known as Aldine editions, are
much sought after by collectors. His
lirst volume tn the uew type was a
Vergil published ln 1501 at the price of
about 2 shillings of our money Aldus. In fact was the pioneer of cheap
literature.
The Aldine mark is a dolphin twined
about an anchor with the name
"Aldys." If any reader, says Mr. .1. A.
Hill In the Imprint, finds a cartload
of old books with this mark In his
attic or lumber room, he is duly nil
vised not to use them for lighting the
tire. They would probably buy him a
good annuity for tiie solace of bis declining years.
How Koreans Advertise.
Although the Korean has stubbornly
refused to adopt western Ideas, be has
nJirflxs recognized the value of advertisement. When n Korean opens a
new shop or has any particular wares
be ls anxious to dispose of or when a
nobleman desires to convey a certain

1914 more than in other years and
pointed out that there were some
good men to choose from. He was
heartily applauded when he resumed
his  seat.
Alderman Kellington.
Alderman Kellington, chairman of
the finance committee, was received
warmly but captured the meeting and
was given a more enthusiastic endor-
Bation when he dealt with his stand
on   the   liquor  question.
He dealt first with the finances of
the city and with the method adopted
by the finance eommithe when it was
realized that it would be impossible
to dispose of tiie bonds until late In
1914.
At th;* beginning of the year he
pointed out ithat everything looked
rosy for :> prosperous year and tiie
estimates were prepared with the understanding that the bonds would be
sold.
li was soon found, however, that
this would he impossible and it was
decided that the finances would require Ilie closest scrutiny. A meet
ing was called therefore at which
ihe chairmen of the different committees were present and it was decided
to cut down the estimates. Mr. Kellington Stated that the manager of
the Hank of Montreal was in hearty
accord witli the method adopted by
the council.
The estimates were shaved and
during the past six months of the year
over $42,000 was saved and the bylaw   money   left  almost   intact.
The school estimates were also cut
down at a meeting with the school
hoard  and  instead  of  spending $113,-
000 only $98,000 was appropriated,
making  a  saving of  $15,000.
Alderman Kellington stated that a
total of $665,275.80 of bylaw money
had been spent from bylaws, the bonds
of which hail not been sold. There i.i
at the present time $371,495 in the
savings account at the bank, while
the city owed the bank $290,000 on
demand notes. The money in the
bank was from the gas and harbor bylaws and there was thus a balance of
nearly $100,000. Of th? money owing
the bank $70,000 was borrowed to complete the hospital and $47,000 for the
schools,
The chairman of the finance committee was warming up to his subject
and in a hurst of eloquence exclaimed:
"Don't go out on the str;*et and ask
where is this money going to ? Don't
say Kellington has got it. Don't go
around suggesting tilings, he above
beard and seek your Information in
the proper manner, instead of going
mound criticizing and insinuating. |
, Come ami ask your questions, lor 1 <
am   here  to  answer them."
1 The   speaker   was   roundly   cheered
When lie paused anil was given a further   ovation   when   he   took   up   the
I liquor licaise question, explaining his
stand.
He preferred to make it possible
for people 'to get bottled liquors if
they desired, without, having to go to
a place where liquor was being consumed and where it would probably
cost the purchaser the price of his
bottle in treats. "Treating" in his
opii.ior. war Lhe greatest curse of the
liquor traffic and he suggested that
the temperance people would do.more
good is they took steps to eliminate
this curse.
lie told of tin* action of the commissioners in refusing an application
foi & license for an hotel which it.
was proposed to establish in Sapperton and of the doubling of the license
fee   two   years   ago.
Alderman Kellington in conclusion
stated that no money bylaws should
be submitted during 1914 as it. would
jeopardize the sale of the bonds already authorized.
Alderman Lynch.
Alderman F. J. Lynch, chairman
of the light committee, who is not
seeking reelection, told of the savings
in his department despite the increase
in the number of lights. The new
contract for power entered into with
the B-..C. B. R, which ordinarily would
have gone into force in 1914, was made
law in 1913 and by this a saving to
the ratepayers of $13,000 was made.
The original estimates were $53,937
j but a further saving of $3000 had been i
made here. The revenue in 1912 was
i $93,000, but In 1913 this increased to
$103,860, Of the $4>i,oon bylaw endorsed by the ratepayers for extensions only $25,oiiO had been spent and
tin* balance of $15,nou together with
about $5000 In stock would be at the
disposal of the new light committee.
He tolil of the lire in which .damage to supplies had been done hut
which was fully covered by insurance.
lie also spoke of the need of Ilu* civic
storehouse where all supplies could
