Although the council meeting called
for yesterday afternoon lasted about
an hour and a half, there was very
little business of public Interest transacted.
Very few things were lefl over for
the consideration of tlie new council,
tbe mosl puzzling proposition bein;:
the fact that three wooden house.; Just
beyond the Premier hotel encroach
three Inches on the street ana interfere with the construction of tlie retaining wall on Columbia street west.
The engineer reported thai such
was tlie case, and after the council
had considered for a momnt or two
Alderman Qilley suggested tbat it be
left for the new council.
Business in Dark.
The meeting vvas interesting in that
the llrst part of it was held by the
light of three candles. Two were on
the clerk's desk flanking the heavy
minute book.
Disposal   of   Storm   Water.
The city engineer reported on a lot
of subjects, lie bad been asked why
tbe Sixth street storm water was being sent through the Bight street system by a connection at the coiner of
Sixth and Carnarvon streets. His reply was that that was the original
plan, and the cost of the same was
being borne by the city, and not by
the property holders. The reason was
that the Sixth street sewer was not
ample enough for present requirements.

It is peculiar that for aldermen and
scliool trustees there are thirteen candidates nominated. It will be an unlucky number for some of tbem.
(Continued  on  I'aie  Six.)
Only   five  of   the   thirteen  can  be',
elected   for   the   school     board    and
seven for the aldermanic board.
For aldermen there are no candidates who bad not announced theirI
intention of running before, but for
the school board tbere are five candidates who made tbeir names known
for tbe first time yesterday. These
are, John Keid, II." P. Vidal, W. T.
Cooksley, .lohn Peck and William McAdam. These men are all well-
known and make the race for the
school board much more interesting
than it was at the beginning of the
week.
The most startling feature of tho
meeting last night was the report reid
by C. A. Weisb, when he stat, d ids
attitude on the audit question, and incidentally revealed a condition of the
city's finances which far from reflects
credit on Mayor l.ee, who
such a turmoil ove- having tlie finances of the city placed on a sound
business basis.
The following is the report:
The Library.
The appropriation for the library
was $2150. Of this amou*T $1212 has
been spent on repairs, books, papers,
William Mur-i maintenance, etc, balance $942. it
may be information to some of you to
know that tbere are on an average of
250 people a day visit the library.

books added to the library in the past
year, and also a very large number of
papers and magazines.    1 am pleased

Like his predecessors, he claimed
re-election solely on the strength of
his record, which be stated to be unimpeachable.
Water, Water,  Everywhere.
Alderman Bryson started off to tell
about t..e wa^er emmittee. The wa-,
ter committee was composed of new'
men, and su when tbe bull of trouble
came after tbem, tbey bad lo take
bim by the horns and light for their
lives. Things went along quietly for
about three months, because be did
not know what was the matter, ln
April the water was very low, but the
water superintendent did not know
what was tie matter, save that there
were some I   :ks in the line.
He sketched the history of his trip
up   to   Lake   Coquitlam   in   search   of
bad  met and  over-peaks.    Strange to say, while he was
accommodation  for 1011 ibe the way up to the lake, the

to report to you, ladies and gentle
men, that I believe that the ...jiary Is
being looked after and run in a most
satisfactory manner.
Criticism of the  Audit.
1 wish to thank the electors for tbe
great honor they paid me last year in
electing me to the council.    I can assure you that I have done my best to
fulfil my duty as an alderman in the
past year.    Some of the members of
the  council  have  been    criticized    a
great deal  over tlie  stand  tbey  have
i taken as regards to Hie audit.    I bave

Whf>n tbe returning officer read out

members of the council tbat he knew
of a good man he epuld get.
Later he reported to the council tbat
he had secured tbe services cf Mr.
Cotsworth. and that bis price was $40
the council chamber, but T. .1. Trapp,
t'ie favorite candidate for mayor, and
some of the prospective al.lermen
were present. Joseph Henley, J. J.
Johnston and Alderman Bryson were
there, and L. Thornbur took down a
few notes when the names of the candidates for the scliool board were read
out.
There were now in all tlie city

this was too much money.    One of th
aldermen  said he did not  think any
man could earn $40 a day at work of
j tbat kind . However, as we were told
I that tbe audit could be made in about
ten  day.,  Mr.  Cotsworth   was  started
! on the audit.    Ten days passed, two
weeks passed, and ihe council had had
no report whatever from  the auditor,
although I  understand  he was report-1
ing to tie mayor. 1
The  council  began  to get  nervous
at  tlye  expense,  and  when   Mr.  Cot.-���- J
worth had been there about forty-five 1
days, and had a bill of $1S00, and still |
no leport. he was told that the coun
cil could not afford to have hlm go on
1 in this  way.    A vouchor  was  passed
Ihe  snip-, t|���.pllKi,  tll0 council and he was paid
the  $1800.    The  mayor  informed  the
council that if tliey would have the
plete the audit without, further expense to the city, and thai he couia

time. Some of the council were on-
posed to ibis heing done. I was- opposed to ills being appointed under

was conducting the audit in a proper
manner, and 1 am still opposed to the
way the audit has been conducted.
Neither Fair  Nor Just.
In   my   opinion   Mr.   Cotsworth   liasv
not been fair nor just in bis leport,
mentioning some of the irregularities,
and leaving out others.   He mentioned
certain   people   and   left   out   others-

affairs this last year, while Mr. Cotsworth  has been here  ,and he should
know  it.    We want a man who will
report things as they are.    Mr. Cotsworth in liis report bad done tbe city
some good, and he bas also done the-
city a great deal of barm.
1     lt seems to me that be bas gone out
of  his  way to attack  certain  people,
and not mentioning others in these irregularities.    It  also   seems    to    me
that he Has gone out of his way to
give  the city  all the undesirable advertisement be possibly  could,    lf be
bad   been   tbe   man   to   conduct  this
audit   in  a  proper  manner,  he  could
have   done  the   city   a  great,  deal  or
good, as it is, he has clone the city -a
great deal  of  barm,    lf 1 e  had gene
along about his  business as an auditor  and reported things as be found
them, and not   listened  to  other people, he would have clone the city much
more  good.    You  all  know  that Mr.
Cotsworth  was   appointed  under the
act without salary.
I have heard it rumored that he has
.said he is doing all this- work for the
city for nothing.   Now, ladies and gentlemen, the understanding    with    the-
council   was   that   he   had  offered  to
complete  the audit  without  any  further" pay.    He  has  had  $isoo.    But.
ladies and gentlemen, this is not alf
the audit has cost the city.   Mr. Rush-
ton has been at the city hall about
eight  months  at  a  salary  of $80 or
$85 a montli, doing nothing else but
audit    work, except    for   about   two
j months,   while  be   was  assisting  the-
treasurer.    He was not appointed by
the  council,  but  by the mayor,    the
council not even being consulted.   In
mv  oninlo-i.   tlie  auditor  and   bits  report  hti'e  been,  r.nd are beinu used

Irregularities.
As to some of the Irregularities that
have existed this past year.  I misfit
say that on  December 19 tin's letter
was handed to me by Mr. Cotsworth,
Iof 20,000 inhabitants.    He then refue

He claimed credit, cn passant, for
the Improved financial condition of
the clly, indicated by recent bond
transactions! although admitting that
this was also partly due lo the development and prosperity which the
city has enjoyed In common with
Other parts of Canada.
An "Explanation."
As an afterthought, Mr. Lee under-
toolj to explain a rumor that had heen
circulated, ho said, and had become
so garbled as to bo liable to misunderstanding. It was to the effect that
111 mey had been taken from the bank
He claimed that thc children were

last year to vote for the bylaw to
liuild the new schools, but stated that
a new bylaw would be submitted next
year, aii.l it would be for a larger
amount than the one wllich had been
defeated.
Mr. Trapp spoke considerably further along school board subjects, and
held the attention of the audience.
Space does not permit Uie printing of
all his remarks. The reception of Mr.
Trapp was cordial in tho extreme. His
speech was frequently interrupted by
rounds of applause, and when he sat
down, he was given a tremendous ovation.
A. W. Gray.
A. W. Cray, chairman of the electric

reported a record year In his depart-

Ho quoted some outstanding figures
Attacks Ald��rman Adams.
He states that Alderman Ada"ms had
never made any explanation why a 14-
Inch pipe had not been laid to the
city limits, instead of the two pipes
now being laid, lie claimed credit
for the dismissal of Hermon and Burwell as engineers on the pipe line,
and thus saving the city $14,000.
"We laid down seven miles of pipe
this year. 1 think Sapperton has been
fairly and squarely dealt with. We
spent $15,000 in laying pipe and $5000
went to Sapperton. We put lu ten
new hvdrants and Sapperton got five."
He said that at the beginning of the
year there were only two men in the
city who knew how to cut off the
water, and now the city had a complete plan of the water works. He
spoke on the question of the indemnity to the mayor and aldermen. He
stated that he had taken exception to
tne raise on account of the way they
gut   it.
Refused  Salary.
He never took the $'150 which he
was voted. He left, it in the city
treasurer's office, and if the people
thought he earned It he would take it
when he was re-elected. iLoud np-
flause.) He thanked W. Henderson
und J. J. Mahoney for helping the
water committee in drawing up the
plan. He said that he had made only-
one promise last. year, and that was to
get a coat with a tail as long as his
worship's. He had done so, and could
produce the goods. (Laughter and
cheers.)
Alderman  Jardine.
Alderman Jardine said that he had
endeavored to do hls duty. If he had
not done so. It was on account of the
heart and not of the heart The board

Alderman Smith.
Alderman J. Carter smith, another
who is not seeking re-election, spoke
on the policing of the city. The police |
force, he knew, had been criticized,
but it must be remembered that the

was a .ood piece of work, lie referred very briefly to the record year's

| thought it was an important institution, and Bhould lie fostered. He
thought   that    when   the   council    wns
considering the advisability ot erecting a city hall, the members should
! take Into consideration the facl  that
I tbo markel would soon need an extension.
Present at All Meetings.
He had attended all the committee
meetings, of which he bad been notified. Unfortunately be bad not been
notified of several meetings ot the
water committee, and so had not attended.
Favored  Pure  Water.
He stated bis attitude on ihe pure
water question,    Evesy  man on  the
council voted in fit' ir of preserving
Ithe purity of the water whenever the
j question was brought  up.    In regard
to  tlie auditor's  report,  he said  he

The Audit.
When the matter was flrsl  brought
up, the council was unanimous in fa!
i vor cf it.   Tliey were unanimous until]
i tbe  auditor   brought   in   the  first   in-
| stalment <>f bia report.    The mayor
told the council  at   the  time of  the
lirst report that it would take about x'
week to finish the report and that was !
j several  months  ago   (and the report;
; was still unfinished.) ��� fle objected toj
I the auditor because he thought he was
i dealing   unfairly   with   Alderman   Jar-
i dine.    He thought the audit had not
, shown that anything had been wrong-
I fully taken from the city.    Referring
( to the memorial service    which    had
been held at Queen's Park in memory
of King Edward, lie strongly objected
ito the action taken on that occasion
' when   workmen   were   excluded   from
j the oval  and  not  given  a chance to
hear the service.

Alderman Welsh, in starting, paid a I
compliment to Alderman Bryson, who
be hoped, would he elected.    He said
that more had heen done in the small |

of lots by John A. Lee at the city
tax sale in 1002, as set out in the report of Auditor Cotsworth, the name
of Messrs. Major & Savage was men
Honed as defaulters. It was, of
Course, impossible that this new, but
well-known firm of the present day,
could have been concerned in any- j
ihing which occurred as far back as
1002, and the reference should have
been to Major & Pearson. The point
is that Mayor Lee had a great deal
to say at the last election arient purchases by his opponent at the tax
sale, and if it was improper for the
latter to act in this way, his Worship
the Mayor, becomes subject to his
own condemnation for buying in at
bargain prices a whole list of lots up-
���on which the firm he was then engaged with and to which he is closely
���elated, were defaulters for taxes
simounting to $805.70. According to
the auditor the value of the lots purchased by John A. Lee for $09.50
would be upon the 1910 assessment

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.
ln 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.

This matter was referred to the Incoming council.
Water Lot Case.
One pf the most important things
done was the recommendation of tiie
application pi Messrs. Galbralth for a
lenewal of the lease on certain land
and lots on Lulu island. The text of
tho resolution unanimously passed by
the council is as follows;
"That the council recommend to the
Incoming council early aud favorable
consideration of the application of
.Messrs. Galbi,aith ior a lease for 2ii
years with right to renewal for a further term of 2ii years, or the land and
water lot owned hy the city orrtslde
the dyke adjoining the Lulu island
biidge, now under lease to the British
Columbia Manufacturing company, and
that a bylaw be submitted to the
electors granting a lease upon terms
to be agreed upon."
A  Mystery.
A hint of mystery came up at the
meeting just befoie its close. Alderman Gilley moved that the accusation
made against a certain city official at
a recent committee meeting be referred to a, committer of the whole to
Investigate.
Mayor Lee stated that no accusation had beeii made, hut that a mistake had been made, and the matter
bad been left witli the finance committee to fix the blame on the proper
party. Alderman Gilley had not been
aware that it was left in the hands of
the finance committee, and when he
learned that such was the case, he
was satisfied. The finance committee
will report at the next meeting of the
council
When Mayor Lee was asked after
the council meeting what the mistake
was, he did not give a definite answer,
but remarked that It was very serious.
The meeting adjourned till Friday
afternoon at 5 o'clock. This will he
the last meeting of the piesent council, and probably the new council will
be sworn in then.

HT'HAT a perfectly constructed,
~ air-tight oven will bake better with half the fuel than a
loosely constructed oven, is a fact
beyond question. The Majestic
oven is made of heavier material
than any other, and is riveted (not
bolted) to a malleable I, or angle
iron frame, making it absolutely
air-tight. 'I he oven in an ordinary stove or ran;,e is bolted or
riveted to the range body, without
bracing and without frames, allowing a knife blade to pass
through corners and sides. It is
natural that with an oven constructed in this manner, it requires twice the fuel, and not near
as good results as can be obtained
in any oven of a Majestic Range.
The. Majestic oven stays that way,
too.
