Fireworks were flying thick and
fast at the council meeting last evening, an I the stormiest sitting of many
months - held. A three cornered
battle of word-: toon place, lasting
nearly an hour, the principal participants being Aid. Howay, Garrett and
the mayor. The hone of contention
was in connection with tlie city 5
claim upon certain rand at the head
of Coquitlam lake, which is wanted
by '.he B. Ci E. R. Co., aud which
had I een previously discussed in coun
cii. A letter was received from K.
��� '��� >������ rling and it was after the real-
ins of the letter*that tlie' 'discus-���'-on
The letter was as follows: "Re lanl
at Coquitlam lake. In reference to
your letter dated August 7, I wish to
state thai should the government consider favorably the company's application for a grant of certain lands at
Coquitlam lake, my company io pie
pared to give a bond to the city that
the city shall at all times have access
to their pipe line and head gates for
the purpose of inspection and repairs.
"If in the future the city should
find it necessary to lay more pipes or
alter ihe location of its Intake pipe.
my company is willing to -ive an understanding to the city that it shall
have fhe right to do such work al any
time, ii is the co.i'. flhy's Intention
in future to build n permanent dam
just below the ��� resenl structure, ;. id
foi that reason it is desirable that the
company should own the land. Signed,
R   1-1.  Sperling."
Immediate Objection.
After the reading of the document
by the clerk, one of the aldermen proposed that it should be referred to
the finance committee for report, but
before the motion was seconded, Aid.
Howay look the floor, and Inquired
'what tl < re was to reporl on,   As be
.    l it. the letter was an an-
swei to one senl to .Manuger Sperling
gome time ago, enclosing a copy of
the resolution passed by the council.
He did not think thai was the proper
.   :;-..'' pursue.
Condemns  Deals.
Aid. Garrett next rose to his feet,
a i in a scathing denunciation of the
a anner In whi< b certain deals were
allowed to go through, he said: "lt is
not right that we Bhould have to ask
the Electric Hallway company for
permission to go through land that
should belong to us. We should have
reserved that place at the intake pipe.
Now I do think that we ought to insist that we own the ground where
tlie intake i>i|ie lies so that we shal-
not have to ask anybody in future. 1
: do not think that we hnve waived our
rights at that, part for the future, nnd
I still maintain Unit we do not hav.-'
to ask them."
Mayor Keary, taking) advantage of
a pause in Aid. Garrett's remarks, said
thai unless the mutter was settled in
accordance with the letter sent hy
Mr. Sperling, future councils might be
hampered   from   using'   the  laud.    It

Port    Grand Spectacle Is Much
the company was prepared to give a
bond to this effect, the council should
certainly accept it.
No Faith in Bonds.
Aid. Garrett said that he did not
have much faiih in bonds, and said
that the bond should certainly lie a
high onc- in any ease, as otherwise
the company might forfeit it. A few-
thousand dollars was a small matter
to a wealthy corporation. 3od Al
mighty had been very good to the city
in placing a lake there, and they ought
to  take care of it.
Aid. Howay, on the subject of bends,
differed radically from the mayor, and
said that although at first sight, it
might appear as if the giving of bonds
by the company might cover eve-y
objection, still very often a company
lie 1. and then the bonds became
valueless. This had been the case
with the bonds by the two previous
companies that had operated here before the B. C. E. R. Co took things
in hand. Their bonds at the present
lime were not. worth ihe paper they
were written cm.
Mayor Rouses Aid. Garrett.
A lengthy discussion between the
mayor and Aid. Howay followed, during which the mayor supported the
action taken by ilie B. C. E. R. Co.
while ihe alderman opposed it. At
the close of this, the mayor made
certain statements about Aid. Garrett
that were hotly resented by the latter. The mayor said that Aid. Garrett had given certain information to
citizens on the street that he was
afraid to bring before the council. He
: had also made certain allegations, hut
he wished Aid. Garrett to understand
iluit the other members of the council,
and of past councils us well for that
matter, were quite as honest as Aid.
Question of Honesty.
\lp|.   Gai rett   was  on  his   li t t   in   a
moiiiini, and snapp-d out "l wani to
say ihat you are not a bit more honest."
The mayor: "I said just as honest,���
. we are just ns honest"
Aid. Garrett���Vou may think what
��� i like, but othei people have their
��� ; Inlon. When you say that, you are
BS honest as 1 am, 1 want to say that
there may be a doubt nbout that. When
I am asked by citizens what 1 saw
at the lake, I uni going to tell them,
and to tell them the truth at that.
'. That is my perugative, and it is not
derogatory to my dignity as an alderman lo so express myself.
Mayor Thinks  it Unfair.
Mayor Keary���Personally    1   think
that  It is decidedly  unfair  that  any
I member of the council will go out on
| the street and say things and make
allegations behind our backs that they
, d are not  make here.
Aid. Garrett���l want you to understand that I have said nothing on the
street thai 1 urn ashamed of, or that
I am not prepared to repeat here, aud

Satisfactory Progress
With Northwest Crops
Winnipeg. Sept. 5.���Agents of tlie
C. P. R. In the wheat bearing area
reported today regarding the progress
made in cutting and threshing the
1 wheat crop of the present season. The

geliinnlng of threshing. The condition
of the weather has certainly been
very satisfactory,    The bright,    long
days,  free from ruin, have gone far
I to compensate for any shortage in tlie
supply of men, all the nieu available
being able to put in long hours every
working day. The cutting is pretty
well through, almost all the grain being safely in the stook and in preparation fin- threshing. The quality of the
grain is said to he good, and there
will he a considerable amount of No.
1 hard for exjiort this year.
The progress of the threshing operations in the country Is well indicated
by the report of wheat marketed at
C P. H. points yesterday. The total
grain receipts amounted to 256,000
bushels, of which _45,000 bushels were
wheat and the balance other grains.
Threshing is In active operation in
all purls of the country.

The danger arising from a badly

nor can any degree of care in avoiding it be considered extreme.
The waste i'i;'1' from a kitchen sink
shoulil have boiled water and ammonia or washing soda poured down

it should be treated to a dose of
some good disinfectant, such as
chloride of lime.

time between Vancouver and Montreal
to ninety hours, i.s what the C. P. R.
intends to do next spring. The C. P.

that the transcontinental service
would be again increased next year.
'lhe two new trains which will be put
on the run will 'ne built especially tor
this servi :e and will lie fitted up iu

are crowded, British tourist traffic to

through Canada now, and with the
new schedule which went into effect
last week with the Overseas Mail the
time is materially affected. Early in
the spring the new trains will be put
on the route, and with a service of
ninety hours from Montreal to Vancouver the transcontinental service of
the C. P. R. will be the fastest transcontinental service on the continent.

Work at the rifle range, which is
being erected on the Surrey side of I
the river, was temporarily suspended |
yesterday on account of the rain. The
brush has been cut down and tbe
plank walk from the shooting platforms to the target has been rushed
along with such good will, that it is
now about three-parts completed. The
butts, for the checkrng of bullets will
be constructed in such a way as to
do away with any danger, and the
target, which is to be of the latest
design has been ordered from the
east, but has not. yet arrived. The
rain was warmly welcomed by the
contractor as fire had been burning
for some days in the peat bog which
lies near the new range, and was
slowly eating i's way in the direction
of the range. The burning turf ls
hard to put out and the rain will do
away with a vast amount of digging
and water carrying.

��� ������ ��� a the mayor ami Aid. Garrett, but.
the mayor was nm yet out of the
Is, lur Aid. Howay then took bim
i- task, ami although flatly contradicted several times, tlie alderman
generally managed to score bis point.
While speaking aboul the pipe line,
All. Howay mentioned that along the
whole line from the Junction to the
lake, they had a gazetted road. The
mayor shook bis head and looked
wise, bur apparently Aid. Howay was
well posted, for he remarked "Pardon
me, your worship, 1 regret to contradict you once more, but ii i.s a gazetted road. I bave looked it up in the
gazette, ihere is no doubt about it.
Ni v.. the strip of land in which our
intake pipe is placed is not included
i:: this road, and that is why we
should reserve it. It would l.e very
much better 10 reserve the strip of
land than to secure a bond from the
a ):., any."
Received ana niea.
Aftei further discussion, the clerk
read the letter a second time, and
upon the request of Aid. Shiles. who
said that he could not understand why
the B. C. E. H. Co. should object to
their re-ervins the land, as there
seemed to he a possibility of a bond
becoming worthless in time, the letter was finally received and filed.
aitei a sho,s of hands bad been called
I'or. A motion that the matter be
further discussed in committee was
The mayor's last words on tbe matter were: "All I have to say is that it
is a very discourteous way to treat
a communication from tbe general
manager of the company."
Complains About G. N.  R.
Aid. Shiles had a complaint to make
: about the poor accommodation at the
G S. R. depot, and proposed ihat a
iettei be written to the proper authorities, asking that something be
done for the comfort of passengers
arriving and departing. At the present lime the office is closed until a.
lev minutes I efore the arrival or de-
parture of each train, and this was
very inconvenient for people who had
J to  wait on  the platform  some lime.
The mayor also had a few remarks
j tn  make about 1he  way  in which the
i G. N. R. had neglected this city, and
���said that it was about time that something was 'lone by the company to
improve the service. The ('. P. R.
were giving much better satisfaction
in every way a* the present iim*' than
tbe Ci.  N. R.
Aid. Howay also condemned the
little shack that dues duty as a. sta-
liim, and on a motion hy Aid. Shiles
I 'ing put to the vote, il was decided
ihat the clerk should write to the
mi per j.a: lies on Ihe matter.
