The following is the annual report

1 herewith beg leave to submit this
my eleventh annual repoit of the
works carried on under my supervision during the year ending December
81, 1910.
Tlie average number of men employed monthly by the department
was 118, the rate of wages varying
from $13.50 to $21 per week, of 5U
hours. Even with this advanced rata
of wages suitable labor was hard to
secure, particularly during tlie summer
months, which accounts t;> some extent ' the inability to accomplish as
much as was intended at the beginning of the year.

MA YOR IN DIL TED BY A UDI1 OR CO Tb WOR TH.
A circumstance which reflects most seriously upon the civic adminiSn
tratlon during ihe past twelve months is revealed in the letter written by-
Auditor Cotsworth to the mayor and council, and handed by him to
Alderman Welsh, who was acting as chairman of the finance committee during the absence of the mayor and Alderman Johnston in the east in December.
This communication, dated December 19 last, which was printed ia
full in yesterday's News, (though strangely it did not appear in the report of Monday night's meeting in the Columbian), contains the following,
very  significant remarks by the ami.tor: _
"The financial  warnings given in my   report   dated   July   30   last,   have-.   ���
been so far Ignored by the council, thai no provision appears to have been
made to meet the debenture pay mei. ts due for sinking fund.
Towards this current expenditure you have practically no funds available in the bank.    Vou cannot be allowed   to   draw   upon   the   debenture".   ���
money, as I much regret to find that you   have   been   doing, not withstand;
Ing  the explicit  and ample warning it was   my   duly   to   convey   to   you   in
council per paragraph 148, etc., of mv report, dated July 30.
That disregard places a far more serious responsibility upon you personally, as well as collectively, in v ew of the fact that you have exceede-.l
your estimates, and that the payment of former interest charges have been
delayed more than once, and that a! this year's end the city had most
faithfully undertaken to resume its payments to the debenture holders"
sinking fund, which have been suspended during the last 12 years, whilst
tbe city was recovering from tlie disastrous fire of 18i)8."
And this is the kind of able and economical financial management,
which Mayor Lee assured the citizens a little more than a year ago they
should have, if he were elected their chief magistrate. This ls the wonderful improvement in the city's finances about which his worship is;
boasting so loudly as having accomplished!
Here was New Westminster unable to pay its December accounts until
several days after the usual date, and only saved from financial disaster by
borrowlng $1<)0,OUO from the bank, for which loan, it was decided to hypothecate $50,000 of the Eighth street sewer debentures, and $50,000 of the
street  improvement  debentures.
There  has  been  a  strong suspicion among the citizens that there was
something radically wrong in the treasury  department.    Ominous   whispers
were heard abroad and the uneasiness which prevailed gave rise to tlie letters of enquiry by "Ratepayer" and others,  which  have    appeared   in   the
News.    A more serious indictment against the administration of Mayor Lee
li    would   not   be   easy   to   establish.    This makes it clear that instead oi
i reforming and improving the finances of the city, liis worship has been ab-
I solutely  neglectful of his civic duties in this respect, and tbat he has heen
: a party to the wrongful diversion of certain funds.    Is one who has proved
himself so unworthy, who has abused the  solemn trust  reposed in  bim hy
the ratepayers a year ago, worthy  of a renewal of that trust?
Again. Alderman Welsh stated at Monday night's meeting, tbat though
he wus a member of the finance committee, be was not made aware of these] ious condition of the city's financial affairs, and it was not until he t.en*-
porarily assumed the duties of chairman of the committee that be discovered how things were. Here then is yet one more proof that Mayor Lee
has been carrying on a form of one man government and ignoring the
council, a system wliich he so roundly condemned   when   electioneering    in
1909
It will he well for ratepayers to ponder over the auditor's report anew,,
j a copy of which has. we understand, b��en mailed to every one.
My  the  way,  this  primed report is evidently sent out from the mayor's
; committee room as a request is enclosed for "your vote anil personal int��r-
; est."   We should like to know who is bearing   the  expense cf  the  printin.
i and mailing of this document?   Is the city to be charged therewith, or is i��
I being done by the mayor as part of his election expenses?
Whilst the report  of the auditor, which has just been published, is in-
I '.cresting, the character of the statements and  allegations   it   contains   is
I often  very irritating.    But its index, -i   truly  wonderful  index,  provides a.
fund of humor.    Skimmnig over this ar random, we find many comical en-
M-ies as:  "Assault by Aid. Gilley," "A alitor Assaulted," "Herb. Gilley (Aid.]
Assault By," "Dramatically Leaves Seit.  Aug.  12th,   1910,    After    Auditor
Coatsworth Asks, 'Does Alderman Gilley Really Expect Anyone to Believe'
All  That That Implies." "Attacks by the  Daily   News   Whilst   in   England
anl Since," and so on. But we do not see any icference in this remarkable
index to the string of apologies which were wrung from Auditor Cotsworth
by indignant ratepayers, officials and others   who  had  been  charged with
malfeasance.

Look af a few criticisms:
" 'A sacred subject is made common.' We have passed the day when
a man has a dl.ferenl code; for the
church and business house. There
caii he no divorce iietween religion
aud husiness. The latter is, after all.
only pure morals. No building is 'sacred' unless ii is made so hy the Individual, When religion becomes more
'common' among nun the world will

" 'It lessens : i llglous appi iti by

Canada had ended doubtfully, and that,

and exceedingly unpromising, in London, one has no difficulty in finding
many feople who will as evt that
nothing could be farther from ihe
truth than the latter statement. Indeed, there are those who say that
Marl in will go a great deal further
in English politics than any Canadian who ever crossed the ocean, and
that, granted health and fifteen years
of life, it is not difficult to imagine
I Circumstances   in   wliich   Martin   mav
cut  a figure of tlie  very  highest Importance.
Martin is not a docile follower of
the government, lie is apt to rip a
spoke oul of the wheel of state at any
moment, He owes nothing to the
parly machine. They tell an interesting story of how he flrst seemed
the constituency in SI. Pancras, and
what is general knowledge is that bis
election agent is the former member
of tiie constituency, and lliat judging
by the last two contests, he has a secure grip on Hie seat for an Indefinite
period. Although his career in parliament has been but brief, and although he is a "kicker," Martin is
said to have secured the ear of the
house in a way Hun few members
Bucceed in doing. The prttlsb house
of commons is said to he the most difficult audience in the world. It takes
personality and grey matter to make
any impression, and withoul this, the
seats empty as if by mimic. But Martin has courage and personality, and,
those who kno'w him say, an abundance of grey mailer.
Sympathy With  Democracy.
Those who see Ihe possibilities of a
brilliant future for Marl in say l ha'
M;n tin's radicalism is the brand Ihat
suits the occasion, that although a
newcomer, he understands British
democracy, its temper, its hopes, and
aspirations, and that an absolutely
fearlessness, occupied with ability
and stamina may carry him along
way.
It is a'milted that personally Martin is "difficult," that lie has not the
.��� hall-fellow- well-met geniality which
we associate with the successful politicians in Canada, but it is pointed
out that this is often an absent quality in successful public men in Britain. Witness Churchill, a supercilious
aristocrat, yet a daring of democracy.
The fact is that the electorate is so
great that it is an absolute Impossibility for a public man to come in
contact with the masses as he is expected  to do in  Canada, even  if  he

wanted to. And besides the Britisher
seems to prefer in his public men, recognized ability rather than expert-
ness in jollying.
Greenwood     Doing    Well.
In contrast to Mr. Marl ill's independent course Mr. H'amar Greenwood is building a career iis an administration liheral . one easih se.-s
that he is highly regarded by the Liberal organization, and liis victory m
Sunderland came at a most timely
moment in the fortunes of the party.
There is interest for Canadians in the
fuel that no two victories in the:
whole campaign had a more electrical
effect cm the respective parties than
Aitken's and Greenwood's. The lat-
ter's particularly marked a psychological point, as up to that moment the
polls seemed to indicate that the Liberal majority would be substantially
reduced.
In view of Greenwood's valuable
services as a campaign speaker, tbe
post ne has .just, iceeived is cone too
good a reward. It is gratifying to>
learn, too, that liis law practice is exceedingly satisfactory and ' that socially he is very popular. If to his
other successes he can add u conquest of tlie house of commons, a brilliant career seems assured. So far he
has spoken but once in the commons.
Greenwood.  Martin  and  Aitken  are
three   simon-pure  Canadians  in   Eng-
llsh public life. Mr. Bonar Law, for example, is said to have almost forgotten that be ever saw Canada, at least
so some Canadians allege. This is unfortunate, for he has climbed high iu
the counsels of one of the great parties; indeed, liis name is discussed as
a possible leader.    Sir Gilbert Parker
is known as an English novelist, and
1 hough  be spent many  years in Canada is typically English.   The same is
true to a degree of a later arrival on
the scene,  Mr. Donald  McMaster, the
eminent barrister.    Both of these gentlemen have safe seats and are highly regarded in the Unionist party. Of

RIDICULOUS ASSUMPTION.
lt is characteristic of Mayor Lee's;
Inordinate self-esteem that he should |
sffect generally, as per    an    obscure
Vancouver organ, quoted    briefly    In
these columns on  Monday, to regard
Mr. Trapp's candidacy for the mayoralty  of  New   West minster city  as  an
attack    upon    liis     (Mr,    Lee)��� upon
some imagined divine right that    the
sreat  Mr. Lee has become possessed,
of in some way to occupy the chair of
lhe chief magistrate at liis own pleasure or profit.
No greater delusion was ever entertained by an inflated egotism. Such
ivn assumption is tantamount, to asserting that the city, and all its interests are, and of right ought to be,
subordinate and subservient to tlie
mayor ancl aldermen (particularly the
mayor! for the time heing, and it is
not. much short of lese majeste for
siny temerarious individual, no matter what eminent quallScations lie
may possess, to allow himself to be

place in the gift of tlie city���the
place rightly looked at. where the
right man, with the mandate of the
ratepayers behind him, can give
twelve months of most valuable service to tbe city.
As against the ridiculous assumption of Mayor Lee that because, by a
small majority, he got a twelve
months' mandate a year ago to serve
the city as mayor, therefore the
mayoralty is his preserve, it may be
laid down as a general indisputable
proposition that the habit of allowing
important antiual elections to go by
acclamation���by default, so to
���is a sure indication of apathy and
indifference on the body politic, of
the Sleepy Hollow, village stage of a
community addicted to such a practice. Conversely, the coming into
the field of energetic, experienced,
able, ami competent men, to contest
I hose important positions is a sure
evidence that tbe city is alive, progressive and determined to progress.

THE   MAN  WE  NEED.
Editor Daily News:
Sir���The citizens of New Westminster are to be congratulated on T. J.
Trapp's decision to allow himself to
be nominated as a candidate for tlie
mayoralty at the coming election.' His '
presence at the bead of affairs in tlie
city council will go far to make up for
tlie set back which the city lias suffered during the present mayor's term
of office.
On all sides we hear of the prosperity which is attending tlie cities
and districts of the province, ancl that
New Westminster is not reaping ihe
share which is its due can be easily
accounted for when an unprejudiced
review of tlie past year's work is
taken. It cannot be denied that this
city lias not gone forward with the
speak  strides  with  which   good progressive
civic government should have impelled it.
In spite of tlie mayor's optimistic
statements, as printed in the local
press, I contend that we are standing
still as a city, in comparison with the
advances made by other cities and
districts of the province, more especially when the exceptionally prosperous limes, and tbe hundreds of
thousands of dollars we are spending
on civic works are taken into con- explosion in a
sideration,    That  several new homes  San      Martin
was something peculiar about the
management of tlie society. He did
not stop tbere, but casually remarked
that the searchlight of inquiry should
he turned on the Royal Columbian
hospital,
"According to tlie const it ul ion of
tlie It. A. & I. society, the hoard of
control should be composed of directors of tlie society, and that is not the
care.
"I think I can fairly claim the right
to criticize, as the exhibition last year
was $5000 in the hole, and this year I
have heard, although l have no means
of verifying, that they were $6000 behind." Forgetting the inclement
weather which fell to the lot of the
last exhibition; lie 6xclaimed that he
did" not see why the exhibition should
not occupy the premier position that
it did several years ago.
Coquitlam Dam Matter,
lie again went over the history of
the Coquitlam dam question, and read
an agreement which he had drawn up
to settle the differences Itt-tween tlie
city and the company. Tbe agreement
is lengthy and complicated, and Mayor
Lee stated that it had already been
submitted to the B. C. E. 1?. He announced that before anything was
dene with h. it wtmld be discussed
In open council.
Mayor Lee spoke for two hours, less
live minutes, ancl although there were
several other aspiring aldermen who
wished to speak, tlie crowd begun to
leave the ball right after be finished
speaking, and Chairman Curtis asked
the crowd to sing the National Anthem.
Thus Mayor Lee's meeting closed
with possibly no change in tiie sentiment of any of those who attended
the meeting.

Burnaby Municipal Elections, 1911
Peter Byrne whose large experience in
Burnaby municipal affiairs has won him the
confidence of the ratepayers, has consented
to accept again nomination for the reeveship.
He stands on his record for far-seeing
and progressive administration, together
with recognized efficiency and honesty, and
a practical knowledge of detail in every
department.
His policy is a continuation of that already adopted by him for the further development of transportation facilities, roads,
water supply, and all things necessary to
induce rapid settlement of the district,
including the improvement by the government of the Fraser river for shipping.
In order to manage in a satisfactory
way questions of expenditure and control,
he is in favor of a two-year term for councillors, one half to seek re-election each year
on lines similar to the school board method.
His motto is ' 'Efficiency
with Economy "
Vote for Byrne and continued prosperity.

The  present   Lord  and  Lady  Minto

His Achievements cn the Turf.
He is the only Britisli gentleman
rider, so far as I know, who won the
French Grand Prix at Auteull, being
the single amateur steeplechase rider
Iin a field of eighteen. He-served a-s
'ja volunteer fireman at the close- of
the Commune insurrection in Paris,
taking a leading pau in the extinction of the conflagration started by
the insurgents and the Petroleuses.
Afterward be wenl through the Carlist insurrection, in 1 n71' and 1873, as
a volunteer, and toward the lattei
part of the campaign acted as correspondent for The London Morning
Post. He served the same paper In
a similar capacity throughout the Servian insurrection against the sultan,
and was attached to the Ottoman
army in the war with Russia, wliich
followed.
A soldier by profession, he spent a
number of years at Simla and Calcutta, on the staff of Lord Roberts,
when the latter was commander-in-
chief of the forces in India; took part
under him in tbe Kurrum valley and
other frontier campaigns, and bad he
not been prevented by illness from
joining the Afghan mission of Bn
Louis Cavagnarl, would have shared
the fate of that unfortunate envoy,
who, it may be remembered, was mas
sacred at Cabul with his entire retinue.
Intimate With Lord Lansdowne.
Lord Minto was military secretary
of Lord Lansdowne when the latter
was governor-general of Canada, and
the relations between the two men
have since then been sllll further
strengthened by the marriage of Lord
Minto's daughter, Violet, to Lord
Charles Fit/main ice, second son of
Lord Lansdowne, and equerry in waiting to King George. Lord Minto was
wounded in Egypt at the battle of Tel-
el-Keblr, and served throughout the
Riel insurrection in Canada; has seen,
indeed, quite a considerable amounl
of fighting, and wields a clever pen.

Minto Castle is situated in the more
mountainous poi tion of Roxburghshire, about six miles distant from
Hie quaint ol dtown of Hawick, Na-
tuie has endowed the district witli
much beauty, in hill and dale, and
history has invested it with the ro
mantle charm associated with deeds
of arms in horder wars. Sir Walter
Scotl was a frequetti visitor at Minto
I Castle, und in hls "Lay of the Las!
I Minstrel," and other works, refers to
> Minto Castle, and various features of
the estate, notably the well-known
| crags overlooking the Tevlot, capped
by a tower mounted with a gun taken
by "Elllotl tie Brave" from the
French admiral Thurot in tlie action
off Isle of Man in 1760. The castle
is of that dark gray stone of which
so many of these ancestral homes of
the Scottish aristocracy are'constructed, and while the older portion is of
considerable antiquity, the modern
part, including tbe great porch and
the immense circular hall, came Into
existence about 120 years ago.
