were not being run on proper principles; the city should not run them
for profit, but should give the public
the cheapest and most efficient service possible at cost. The $9000 revenue from the electric light shown ln
the report for 1906, instead of being
applied on general taxation, should
have been used for the decreasing of
the cost of light to the consumer, or
the Improvement of the service. This
was still more noticeable in the
water department. The owners of
vacant lots voted for the laying of
water pipes past their property, .because it raised that property ln
value, but they paid none of the cost.
The speaker impressed upon the
council the necessity of obtaining
amendments to the charter that would
force every person that obtained benefits from improvements to pay their
share of the expense, if this were
done, lie was confident that the price
to the consumer could be cut in half.
Turning to another phase of the question. Mr. Turnbull spoke of discrimination in the rates In varioii3j>art_ of
the city. The manufacturers got their

return used Oriental labor, which
took their money from the city. Places

Mr. Turnbull again speaking, called
attention to the dangers of the system which admitted pf an Interested
corporation controlling the votea ot
the city. There should be, he said, a
court of revision. ""
Mr, Wilson pointed out that a man
who rented from his wife obtained
two votes. This the mayor admitted,
stating that It was true that, there
plied that there was then no Asiatic
question, and expresses! himself in
favor of the repeal of the by-law.
Aldermen Gray, Henley, Sillies and
Jardine also stated their intention of
supporting the repeal. Aid. Johnston
expressed his pleasure r,t being given
an opportunity of hearing these matte rs placed before the council by the
committees, bnt did not wish to state
"ne way or the other until the matter
had been fully considered, with re-
-?*rd to the voters' list, he believed
that a court of revision was abso-
li tely necessary.
Aid. Shiles stated that many attempts had been made iby former
councils to make some arrangement
by which owners of vacant lots would
be made to pay their share towards
public works.
Mayor Keary stated that there was
a great deal of Justice in the remarks
made and the matters would be discussed by the council.
The question of open meetings was
raised by J. D. Taylor, who asked how
the municipal committee of tho
Asiatic Exclusion league were to
know what matters were to be taken
up by the council. The mayor replied
that statutory meetings were held
every Monday. This did not satisfy
the Interrogate.*, wno suggested that
no Important work was done at these
meetings and the reporters never
knew for certain whether other meetings would be held on the date announced or not. He also desired to
know whether it was a fact that rhe
aldermen were sworn not to divulge
the proceedings of the council; to
this question no answer was returned.

coffins were the bodies of three bro-
thei. named MacDonald. They met
death by drowning at White Fish
river, on the National Transcontinental railway. They were engaged with
a survey party, and in shooting the
rapids the boat was upset. The bodies
were not recovered for some time, but
when they were the weather was so
hot and decomposition so advanced
that they could not be brought out.
They were consequently interred temporarily, some weeks ago the remains
were exhumned and after a long trail
were .brought to the nearest railway
station. They are now being forwarded to Antlgonish, Nova Scotia. By
the accident a whole family of sturdy
Scotchmen have been wiped out.

E. A.  Paige Managing  Director
His Worship Mayor Keary at the
Council meeting ou Monday night again
exhibited very .ad taste in the words
he let fall, anent the appointment of
a committee to ievise the rules of
order. His Worship must know, If
he thinks at all, that the committee
was appointed, the resolution being
proposed and seconded and put in the
ordinary way and although ifrie voice
was only heard in favor, inasmuch as
there was no dissentient voice against
it the whole council were in the affirmative and His Worship should have
declared the motion caried. Instead
of thus impartially presiding, His
Worthlp very improperly called on
the clerk for the next order of business adding "there was no use malting
a fool of the Council." This exhibition of pottishness does not add lustre
to the high position he holds, and
there seems to he a1 forget fulness on
the part of Mayor Keary as to the
status of that position. The Mayor
is the Bervant of the people and the
executive servant of the Council and
by no manner of right should he dictate or even state his views from the
chair. His Worship does many good
tilings well, but these successes
should not cany him away into a dictatorship which must eventually land
him ��� in humility. Self respecting
aldermen who understand their relation to the taxpayer will not allow
the chair to override their rights,
much leas will they .act on the dictates of the gentleman who happens
for the moment to occupy thai chief
magistrate's position.
With all due respect to Mayor
Keary we state again thai only good
can come of amending the rule that.
has been so arbitrarily applied, and
the committee being appointed, afti
without the slightest doubt they -re,

Cleveland, Ohio, March 4.���in a fire
which completely destroyed the common school building in Collinwood, a
suburb, today 75 to 150 children lost
their lives. The fire was started by
an i've:'he;:te.i furnace. The flames
quickly spread, but a panic ensued
when the butTHing filled with smoke,
and the 400 children attempted to
escape. There were ibut two exits In
the building that were available. One
soon become choked with the children,
who madly dashed for the open air,
those who fell in the doorway weFe
trampled upon by those behind, and
soon ihe doorway was impassable.
The frightened and panic stricken
children turned to get out through
the windows, and 'any other means
that could lie found. Escape was cut
off by the flames which, by this time,
bad  spread throughout the rooms.
Basement Becomes Charnel Vault.
The building was of brick, yet this
did not retard the progress of the fire,
ln a few minutes the lower floor fell,
precipitating scores of children to the
basement, among the burning emlbeW.
The scene about the building was
Quickly the news of the terrible
catastrophe spread throughout the
village, and hundreds of parents were
crowding about the building in search
of their girls and boys. In a few
minutes twenty bodies had been taken
from the ruins. Plainly the writhing
or stifled forms of dozens of others
could be seen in the basement. Nearby factories dismissed their men and
instructed them to assist in the recovery. These br.aved the fire. and
made heroic efforts to save those who
were not dead.
Lives Lost in  Stampede.
The greatest loss of life was caused
by one of the exits being closed, to
which point scores of the children
rushed. Their escape was blocked by
a door that opened inward. In this
manner they were delayed in reaching the other dqor and windows. It
i.s said that as a result of this stampede alone scores of children lost
their lives.
Piles of Charred Bodies.
The   panic   thai   had  worked   such
fearful   results   inside    the    building,
spread to the crowd outside     but for
i a   brief time.    Organized    efforts    at
i rescue were soon under wary.    Flre-
! men   played  streams  upon   the   piles
of bodfes in the doorway, and   tried
; to  drag  out   bodies  with   rakes, and
! other   implements.     Ambulance     and
automobiles   were  soon  available"   to
take   the   wounded   to  the  hospitals.
After the fire  had    been    controlled
somewhat, piles of charred little bod-
ies&were still visible in the doorway.
In  trhe rear  door bodies, burned beyond   reeognizaCon,   lay    piled    five
feet deep.
Smoke Prevented Escape.
The front exit was jammed full of
fighting and panic stricken humanity.
Many who reached the exit first escaped, but those who followed choked
the doorway. Those who fell were
trampled upon, and many are supposed to have been killed. Those
behind turned, and made for the "windows and escaped. In this way three
or four were killed while others were
more fortunate and escaped with
Slight injuries. The greater number
of those who met death were cut off
from escape by the smoke which
blinded them. Caught like rats in a
trap, in this manner they fell with
the lower floor amid blazing timbers
to the basement below. Bodies were
taken to the morgue at the Lake Shore
and Michigan Southern Railway Company's shops. A few minutes after
the school was known to be on fire
it was surrounded by parents who
were frantic in their dazed efforts to
rescue their children. Very few were
saved from among the children who
were behind the jam at the front door.
The others escaped with slight injuries.
Little   Ones   Terrified.
A man who reached the scene shortly after the fire "uroke out, declared
that the back door was locked. He
attempted to break it down, but failed.
He then smashed* in the windows
with "ffe aid of others, and rescued a
number of children. The flames rapidly shot up through the central halls.
It i.s said the children were terrified
beyond all control, and the teachers,
although  they   struggled   bravely     to
i marshal!  their charges out    of    the
! Ibnilding, were utterly helpless.
Two Teachers Missing.
Of the nine teachers of the school
j seven are accounted for. The two
missing   are    Katherlne    Waller    of
I Cleveland  anrl  Grace Fiske of    East
', Cleveland.
j Principal Frank P. Whitney of the
school estimates tJie number of dead
from 75 to 150. The pupils were mostly little children ranging in age from
9 to 10 years.

Should Establish Buying Agencies in
London, March I.���The United Service institution discussed the serious
shortage or the horse supply from a
military standpoint. General Sir E.
Hutton spoke of tbe deterioration
noticeable In Canada and Australia,
and said he bad done all in his power

the recrudescence of distrust might
be allayed. He does not promote that
object when he congratulates this
country upon accepting the proposal
of the United States to go to The

Newfoundland, the l'nite'1 States having exerted themselves to postpone or

The Department of the Interior has
Issued a most valuable pamphlet entitled "Canada's Fertile Northland,"
accompanied iby maps of the territory
described. The information contained
in the book comprises a large range
and full of interesting reading, besides
I elng extremely useful and stimulating and is presented in a niosi readable and Interesting form. The illustrations, of which there .are a large
number, are fine pieces of work and
well selected, depicting scenes at various ]k)ints of the great northland.
This pamphlet ought to have a wide
circulation and aid considerably in
advertising the country and Its resources, being undoubtedly a valuable

Work on the new telephone 'building
is delayed pending the arrival of the
metal sash without which it would
be waste of time to commence the
work. The presed brick for the building has arrived and is on the ground.
The windows are designed In keeping
with tlie fireproof feature of the building. The sash are of galvanized iroa
and wire netting will be rolled Into
the glass panes. The transon of the
same material is fastened by a chain
which keeps the transom open when
desired. This chain has a link of
soft metal which fuses at 104 degrees
of heat, the window released'Trom the
chain automatically closing. Thus, in
case of fire, the windows, even if left
open would of their own accord close
and thus shut off the fanning of the
flames iby the draft.

This company is formed for the purpose of supplying the <"ity erf Vancouver with absolute!) clean im
pure milk of the highest quality, free from drugs and deleterious germs. The need of such a milk supply is
so well known lhat there ls no need lo dilate on this quest ion. the plans of the Company bavins the
earnest support of the Medical Society, the Provincial and City Health Officers, and every doctor la the
An option has been secured at a very favorably price on the well known Cruickshank Farm al MftUoul
close to the C. P. R., and on the route of the Chllliwach tram line. This property comprise- 640 acre* of
which 400 acres nre in a high state of cultivation, and the balance is rich pasture. It is pro] ised to erect
thoroughly modern barns with cement. Boors throughout, well ventilated and lighted, and a modern Ice anil
bottling plant, shipping by special refrigerator car to Vancouver every day.
The' price to be given for the farm is $76,000, or about $117 per acre, a very low figure considering
the quality of the land, the improvements and the situation. It would be hard to find a farm better
adapted for the purpose of a large modern dairy. The terms of purchase are $25,000 cash, and the balance in fully-paid shares of the Company.
From the sum of $100,000 to be realize,!  from  thr' Bale of lo.ooo shares now offered, there wlll remain
?7."),00n after  paying the cash  portion rrf the price of the farm  property.   It is believed that this amount
will  be sufficient for the predion of the necessary buildings .and equipment and thejiiirchase of abi
cows, especially selected after careful examination.
The City has no authority at the present time to Inspect any dairies outside the City,   The Company
proposes io give it this authority, so far as its own .;arns and premises are concerned, and will welcome
such Inspection at all times,   lt also proposes to ask the Medical Association to aptKiint a committee of Inspection.
The City records of 1007 show 14S deaths of babies under twelve months* old, and medical men have
stated their opinion that at least 90 per cent., or say 133, of these deaths are directly traceable to milk,
either drugged or contaminated at time of consumption. It is needless to say that 148 does not by any
means cover the total number of deaths of children, as It is the number of those under twelve months ol
age only.
Out of thirty samples of milk collected in Vancouver during 1907 and analyzed by the Dominie. Government authorities, only two samples reach :!"_ per cent., which Is the average Canadian percentage ol
butter fat), and fourteen of them were officially described as either watered or skimmed, and were below
3 per cent., which is the Vancouver City standard.
The average farmer and milk vendor is perhaps unaware of the need of the most scrupulous cleanllnBM
in every detail In the handling and delivery of milk, and lacks the necessary capital for the erection ot
cement floored barAs, properly lighted and ventilated, the equipment of refrigerating and bottling machinery, anil the employment of men technically trained in what Is now recognized as a business requiring
scientific care and management.
Without a supply of natural ice, or the means of artificial refrigerai.on, milk cannot be kept durlngthe
period of twenty-four to forty-eight hours which elapses between milking and delivery, without the aid of
liowerful preservatives, such as formaldehyde, etc. This drug prevents milk turning sour, even If expOMd
to the sun, but this and other preservatives are Very dangerous.
This Company will- supply milk only of the highest standard1, both as to quality and purity. It doei not
propose to pasteurize milk, which at '.est is a makeshift.
It should be clearly understood that jiasteurized milk Is not pure milk; it is only Impure milk which
has been renovated, and the Impurities to a greater or less extent removed.
The very fact that milk needs pasteurizing is in itself a suspicious circumstance. This Company B8YW
intends having milk on any of its premises in need of renovation, as it will keep only healthy cows, which
will be under constant veterinary supervision; the milk, when produced, will be pure and absolutely clean,
and will be kept in that condition until delivered to the consumer.
Immediately after milking, the milk will be aerated and cooled to a temperature of 38 degrees, put in sealed bottles and delivered at the doors of customers exactly as it left the farm, and at the same tempera1
ture; this will prevent the need of drugs in summer to keep it sweet, and will also prevent the probation of injurious bacteria in the milk, to which is attributable the enormous infantile mortality in the
City and district.
Arrangements have been completed to secure the services of a well known dairy expert as general manager. This gentleman has successfully operated one of the largest creameries in Canada, and has made a
special study of all matters connected with the handling and feeding of cattle.
Paper estimates of profits are some times delusive, so the directors content themselves with jwinting out
the well known fact that all the dairy farmers in the district have been for many years doing very well Indeed, and Ihe milk distributors have been doing even belter, one firm being credited with making a pro.!
of $100 per day all last summer.
ll ls well known that in no part of Cnnada can cow feed he produced cheaper than in the ���j��wer
Eraser Valley, and as similar companies in the United States, which sell their milk at lower prices than
are current here, pay good dividends, there is no reason why this Company should not do thr- same as
the use of milking machines and labor saving devices in handling the feed, manure, etc., etc., should offset
the higher wages of this Coast.
The Company aim to keep 500 cows, but It will be obviously Impossible to get this number in a .v(ur'
and while every effort, will be made to deliver milk by June, before tue hot weather begins, it Is doubtful If
more than 100 cows oan ibe obtained by then and the necessary barns and buildings completed. In selling
the milk, preference will naturally have to be given to the shareholders of the Company, and it Is Ml
likely there will be any surplus for sale to the general public for at least the first year of operation, a'"1
as there will be probably many people of small means in urgent need of this milk, the shares have bean
put at a price, and on terms, within the reach of all.

lock breaking, Why the looks had

mid why they were repeatedly broken
was more than lhe other could under.
stand. The case was sifted down to
one of mistaken Identity anil all the
trouble  was  satisfactorily settled.
Mr Cummerford, whose Christian
name is Michael, ,und whose manner
of speech is strongly suggestive of
Irish nativity, bought e iboat from a
man who was leaving town. He made
th��" purchase wlthoal seeing the goods
being merelj told "' the locatlo of the
craft. He went to the loc ilny. ipled
out a tine looking boat, and concluding thai n was nis. fa tern . II with
chain and  lock  br one 01   til    piles of
the government wharf,
S H, Toy who is ire owner ol i
splendid seaworthy boat, went to the
wharf next day to take some friends
out duck hunting, and finding his property chained and locked, proceeded
without ceremony to release it The
next day Mr. Cummerford appeared
on ihe scene, and after slginz up the
situation, convinced himself that a
crime had ben committed. To prevent
a recurrence of the outrage he procur-
ed two chains and two locks, nnd
again connected the boat with the pile.
Before another twenty-four hours
iiad elapsed Michael discovered thnt
someone had attacked his chains and
locks with a sledge hammer, rendering them useless. Then he sought
the assistance of the officer of the
law. About this time Mr. Toy was
seriously thinking of applying for an
injunction to restrain some person or
persons, unknown, from taking care
of his property, and the two mystified
mrn met.

Kl Paso, Tex., March 4,���A special
to the Herald from Chihuahua gives
.details of the robbery of the Danco
Mlnero, reported yesterday. The robbery occurred Sunday night, and when
the thank was opened Monday morning
It was discovered that the robbers
had secuivd 295,000 pesos in bills of
the denomination of 1000, 100, 50 and
20, The building had been entered
by breaking tbe lock, and the money
vault by taking out stone masonry.
The work is supposed -o have been
clone Sunday afternoon and night. The I
bank was capitalised at 6,000,000
peSOB. It has a reserve of 1,700,087 |
pesos. The robbery caused no fear as '
to the bank's soundness,
The robber took the money from a j
vault directly under the study of Gov.
Enrique C. Creel, who has a residence
In tne upper stories of the building.
The lock to the document vault was ]
broken from the inside, and the cur-
rency taken consisted of notes already ;
issued and passing constantly over:
the counters. The numbers are unknown and identification will be prac-'
ticnlly impossible.
A statement has hern issued by the
bank officials calling In all outstanding  1000 peso notes   for  redemption, j
Most of the missing money was of this
.denomination.    A large    quantity   of
Bilver, gold and bills of small denom-
Inatlone were untouched by the rob- |
.hers, although thtry were lying In trie
same compartments  from  which the.
currency was taken.
It Is believed that the robbers had I
accomplices    among   the    bank   em- j
ployees, and that  they were conceal-
ed In the vault before dosing time
Saturday afternoon.    The lock being
broRen from the inside of the vault ���
supports this'theory.
The bank watchman, the porter and
two or three men of unknown antecedents have been arrested and are
held in jail Incommunicado.
