Royal Commission Holds Session In Westminster-Many Reforms Dealing With All Phases c( Municipal Government
Advocated-Th: ee Year Terms-Local Government Board.
Although It was.Intended to occupy i material, quarries and   crave!    nlii
two day. Ip New Westminster look-1 also waier and power rfght. .hffl
Ins   Into   tbe management of muni
cipal affairs and hearing suggestions
for Improvements, the royal commission   appointed    by   the    lieutenant
governor in councll, consisting of Mr.
W.  H. Keary,    chairman,    of    New
Westminster;  Mr. Hugh A. McLean,
I  K.C, of Victoria, and  Mr.  Alfred E.
��� Hull, ot Vancouvei-. kept things moving at the city hall yesterday, with
I tbe result that they completed their
labors ln a aihgle day Instead of prolonging the session until  this morning.   Municipal.ownership, the formation of a body like unto an  English
county couucil, opposition of church
e- emptlon, and amendments to    the
present   election    law    formed    the
salient features of the gatherings. -
Mr. James Cunnlnnhsm.
Government  by    commission    was
fathered by Mr. James Cunningham,
wbo, speaking during the afternoon
said  be deplored  the  present status
of the city government, especially the
city of New Westminster-   Mr. Cunningham remarked that he was   tbe
- flrst mayor of Westminster and had
been a councillor for several

a councillor for several ;years.
"I am strongly In fayOr of the commission foriji of kovernment,:' he s��H
��L believe that three men appointed ! would have charge of all tt
fey the government, men who kaowjsewyis, streets, lights, etc.
their  busl/iese and  are receiving    a      ""    "*
g.ood Salary would be infinitely better than the present system of eoun-

the council idea and tbat body could
render' 'material   asjitaUoM   to" t&p
be reserved in advance by the government for future' "'communities
wherever they are likely to settle.
Another feature of Mr. Cotsworth's
statements was that It 'should be
made Impossible for a councillor who
is seeking reelection to avoid ques-
> tions by refusing to appear on the
public platform at least two weeks
before election. ���   :
"This," said Mr. Cotsworth, 'Knay
seem comical, but as President Lincoln said, 'Men may fool even a majority part of the'time, but not all
the people all the time.' "
In closing, he deplored the present
way of some municipalities In
eremptiog taxes from corporations If
the latter would locate an industry
there. It sets a bad example and the
sooner this was stopped the better.
Mr. A. G. Mtore.
A similar stand to that of Mr.
Cotsworth was taken,by Mr. Arthur
G. Moore, municipal clerk or Burnaby, who spoke OT his experience '��� on
urban district and county couhcll
work In England. Mr. Moore Suggested that a form bt county council
should be formed

THHI
IRELAND TO BUILD
NEW FISHERY BOATS
Cpeclally Designed Craft Will Be Far
Cheaper and More Efficient
Than Before.
Ottawa, Aug. 30.���The contract for
the new fishery protective boats for
the Paciflc Coast ls expected to bo
given to the Dublin Dockyard Co., ol
Dublin, Ireland. Tenders were called for these vessels in April last.
A large number ot tenders were received from Great Britain and Canada, and it was found impossible to
construct the vessels ln Canada for
the amount available aj provided ln
the appropriation.
The Dublin Dockyard Co. has had.
experience In this sort of work,
having recently built a most satisfactory vessel for tbe Irish Fishery Protection Board. The vessels to be
built for the British Columbia coast
are to be an Improvement on Mn
craft, and are to be constructed in
accordance with. most recent practice and with the view of obtaining
the most seaworthy type of vessel for
the purpose.
It is possible that fli ise veisels
will be built in conjunction with two
small motor driven craft, as it is considered that vessels such as these
would increase the efficiency of the
protection service on the coast.
The vessels to be ordered ln Ireland represent an interesting change
in policy. Hitherto an effort has
been made In obtaining fishery protective ships to combine 'he characteristics of a gunboat and a fishery
protection steamer, with unsatisfactory results as regards speed and seagoing qualities. The baval service department, on taking over the task of
fisheries protection, reconsidered the
subject and decided to build tbe ves-

Windsor, Ont., Aug. SO.���The most
important action taken by the Union
of Canadian Municipalities at its
filial session here today was the
adoption unanimously of the resolution offered by Alderman Joseph
Clarke, of Edmonton, opposing tbe
application of the Canadian Pacific
Railway for permission to increase
Its capital Btock by sixty million dollars.
The convention based its opposition to the proposed plan on the
ground that the increase is for the
purpose of keeping dividends of the
company below tbe limit at which the
Dominion Government would be entitled to exercise control over its
freight and passenger rates.
The resolution of Alderman Clarke
read as follows:
"Whereas upon the corporation and
issuing of a charter to the Canadian
Paciflc Railway Company of Canada
provision was made that the government should retain and exercise control of the freight and passenger
rates as soon as tbe profits accruing
to the said company reach the
amount of ten per cent, per annum
on the common stock, and
"Whereas up to the present time
'���.his beneficial provision has been of
no benefit In securing to the patrons
of the said railway company, especially in the western part of Canada
any reduction or consideration ln the
adjustment of its freight and passenger rates for the reason that the
said company has not admitted their
profits equalled to 10 per cent, per
annum on the common stock, and
"Whereas, now the profits of the
said company have reached such pro
portions that It is impossible longer
to deny that the profits have reached
that point where the government of
Canada is entitled to exercise a con
trol and regulation of the freight and
passenger rates, and
"Whereaa, the said company has
made - application or are about tc
make application for permission to
increase the common stock of the
company, without in any way retailing the Safeguard and equitable pro-
v'slnn stipulated by the government
of Canada, when the provision herein
referred to was first inserted, and

to the citizen* at large to note that
the Royal Cily la getting a very
much preater measure of publlcitj
from ihe work of this organization
than she has enjoyed hitherto.
The weekly meetings of the execu
tive appear to be followed very close
Iy in our sister city of Victoria, and
within the past week two editorial

He was strongly in favor of the police and license commissioners being
elected by the people and not appoint
ed by the government. i
Labor  Men   Speak. |
Sir. It. A. Stoney appeared ln favor
of the abolition of the church exemption from taxation.   The Trades and'
Labor Council, of which he is presl-
dent did    not    think it proper    that,
these   institutions   should   get   away,
scott  free  from   taxes    while    other j'
businesses had to pay theirs. |
"Some persons do not attend i
church, and why." he asked, "should ]
they be compelled to pay for theli |
upkeep?"
Mr. A. Hogg spoke in favor o* 9, i
reform regarding the property quill"'

signed by r>0 ratepayers should b?
sufficient to nominate a mai InsteiJ

Mr. A. D. Christie and W* I) S.
Cameron spoke along the sam ��� lines
the latter c'tlng the case in U'asgcw,
Scotland, where a tenant has tl:t
right to vote, and also the right to

No office, he thought, should be
held longer than for one year unless

Chairman Keary asked Mr. Camer
on whether this recall movement iva?
not  an American product.or theory.
"It does not matter what country
it originated from if it does tht
work" was the reply.
Dr. A. J.  Holmes.
Dr. A. J. Holmes spoke bvkf'.y on
municipal ownership. He was in fav
or of it, if it did not conflict with
a company which had vested interests.' He also thought the board? ol
trades and other progressive organizations and also the Trades and l.a

is now the custom. The council
could feel the pv.lse of the people by-
taking a vote of these bodies on an

"as h'.il to uuggest thai
when
liiust eiihrr neglect his
private business cr else lii�� civic
work. The only remedy, he thought,
���������as a commission of three to be
elected.
The' "aldermen could lock after the
legislative part of the work while
the executive matter could be handled
by the commission, who should be
paid a good salary if the people wish
ed to get results. They could he elected for three years, one retiring each
year, and thus have a continuity cl
policy.
Aa for police and license commissioners being apposed by the government, he had never been able to
find out Just where the justice of the
move came In, They should be elect
ed. He ended his testimony by entering a plea fcr the exemption of
church and educational property from
taxation.
Acting Mayor Gray was the last
person to appear before the commission. He asked whether s6me provision could not be made to regulate
and Inspect the numerous dairies in
the city and district. Under the existing Municipal Clauses act the city
authorities have found it difficult to
secure conv.ici.ions against dealers
who are not conforoilhg wtth the
health laws.
The Dominion government, he said,
had recently set a stnndarf'W'TliWt'
and if this is not conformed with
prosecutions are liable. '���     I jif
His worship'teame out Wlf^ly.'.'j J*'*i i
favor of the commission fofr$ toijflfJM
eminent, and also the recall for bo'ln
the mayor and aldermen, though he
understood the recall and commission
had not worked right. That, he
thought, was because tho liberties
had been abused. City aldermen
sometimes had to work seven hours
a day for the city, and no board of
dlreeiors of a company would nut' ir.
so much time for the small stipend
the aldermen  receive.
He commented ��� on the slow movements of the Municipal Clauses act
especially on loct'.l improvements.
The present system of appointing
the license a;id police commissioners
was satisfactory lo him. The balance
of- power was always, ln the hands of
those elected by the city as aldermen
or mayor.
He suggested that the government
should guarantee the municipal bonds
which owing to the stringency of the
London market today was a difficult
task for the city authorities to unload. The government, of c'oursp,
would havo some say as to what the
bonds were to he used for.
Questioned    as    to    auditing, j he
thought a government audit, would be
an Improvement to all the municipal!-1

the east are bound to join together
onoe more while a wire will follow
stating that the Big Four will not accept under any consideration, a proposition to amalgamate with the older organization, the N. L. U.
It is very clear that something han
to be done and mighty quick, too. If
the national game ts to be preserved,
If the invasion of the American game
of baseball ls to be checked, the managers of the different teams must Ret
together and bury the hatchet for
keeps. It can be done lf the magnates
will only forget for a moment the tin-
merclless hunt for the almighty dol
lar.
The spirit of commercialism has
entered a wedge Into the game of ��������
day and some clever thinking ls necessary before; rlt can  be   displaced.
The magnate! In the east Vefe receiving good returns for their capital
Invested two seasons ago and the
fans who are the life and soul of the
game were well satisfied also. The
same applies to the game on the
coast. Both the Westmlnater and
Vancouver managers were making
good, the attendance could not have
been better, but somehow the grab
spirit got emb'.ied In the minds of
so'-ie and the explosion followed.
Whatever plans Manager Con
Jones has for the future Is his own
business, but when lt comes to an attempt, as he has made, to become
the whole cheese In Western lacrosse, the Westminster players and
public have a  perfect right  to  kick.
At the present stage, lacrosse on
the coast Is ln a precarious position
It will require careful nursing lr
hr'ner it hack to Its former r,aoA
e-i'th. Will the Vancouver manager
and his press do their part?
to  ruinous    salaries to retain    their
men.
Wben questioned about thla hew
development, one of the Big Four officials in Toronto waa Inclined tp believe that the lacrosse commission
would become a reality and tkat salaries would drop. "If the N. 1*. IJ.
try to take our players wben thp salaries are lowered, of course we wifl
have to go to the aame extremes asi
we did this season," be declared.
This would Indicate that there will
be a merry battle next season. In
Toronto the Interest In the Big Four
Is lukewarm, while locally aome say
it. Is even worse, and the N. U V
have also suffered. Recently one of;
the Hit* Fmir" magdMAs suggested
that a league with ��\i, teams would
probably pay better am he - named
Montreal and the Capitals as' the
two clubs to be taken in.
Officers of both cluba declare that
they wlll amalgamate only with Cornwall and the Shamrocks accompanying them and with the league under
the name of the National Lacrosse i
Union. Peace between the two rival
bodies now appears an impossibility
and lt will be war to the finish."
English Vs. Canadian Rugny.
Under a heading, "Canadian Rugby
Will Soon Be an Assured Fact." a
Vancouver morning paper this week
came out with the announcement that
the Canadian game is taking root in
Vancouver, Victoria and New Westminster. Just where the enthusiasm
ln thl3 city his been exhibited, we
have bo far failed to find.
The people of the British Empire
are strong supporters of clean and
healthy Eport. Maybe this game is
but from our point of view, it has tou
much a tinge of the American game
to satisfy us. Any sane-minded person who has the ethics of sport at
heart, knows what sort of a game the
American style of play is as played
in the eastern colleges. It ls nothing
else but brutal. The people who support athletics on this side of the
border, for the mo9t part enjoy tht
open play, wbich has made lacrosse,
sccser, football and hockey, etc.
What do we want Vith thi3 massed
piay stuff, where brute force rises to
the front against the s-j'ence of
speed and combination.
Give us English Rugby where each
player has to be a star In himseif,
has to figure oul the next move of
his check instead cf some crowd of
ten or more players inasoins together
and yelling some unpronounceable
conglomeration of figufcest oa\y% to
bore in and make an impact vi-lth ttie
opposition.
New Westminster ls just trying tc
resurrect the English game after a
period of some twenty years of inac
tion. The success of this sport is assured in \>ancouver and Victoria.
The California universities have
placed the ban upon, the American
game simply on account of its brutality and its being against all true
symbol* of sport.
If discipline is takeh away from
sport nothing remains but mere childishness. Let us play for the paying's sake and not altogether for the
prize. The English rugger game in
the Royal City haa got to be fostered
and former players, present players
and future aspirants of the team are
asked to give their support to this
new movement

CHANGEABLE CHICAGO.
Haa Eight Counties and Many Varied
Spellings to Its Credit
"Few people know tbat Chicago haa
been ln eight different counties of Illinois," said an old Chicago man. "It
was flrst placed within the limits of
Madison county, Illinois tben being a
territory, Sept 14, 1812.
"Subsequently It was Included In tbe
following counties seriatim: Kd wards ln
18U; Crawford. 1810: Clark, after the
territory was admitted as a state, 1810;
Pike, 1821; Fulton, 1823; Peoria, 1825,
under the jurisdiction of which It remained untll tbe creation of the county
of Cook, Jan. 15, 183U
"The name of tbe city, too, haa been
spelled more than a dozen ways. Father Hennepin called lt Cbe-can-gon;
La Salle. Sbecagou; on an old French
mop of nisi:, Cbekagon; on another old
map I1GT3I ln tbe Historical society
library at Madison, Wis., It ls Chi-
cuugua; Father Uravler (lOOOl wrote
It Chlcngoun. and in 1700 SL Sosme
wrote it vuiiously Cblkagu, Cblcagou.
-Chlcuqu and Chicago, be being tbe llrst
to give the letters tli* arrangement
which Ann lly wus settled upon as the
authorized s|ielllng. Cburlevolx gave
the same s|ielllng In 1721. In tbe
(ireeiiville treaty iue revlsedi It ts Cbl
kogu.
"In an old deed flled away among
lbe archives or the Chicago Historical
society, ss applied to the river, or
creek H774I, It Is plulnly written Chi-
cogoii. The word was tbe Indian word
for garlic .or wild onion nud signified
to the red men nirong, mighty, powerful, couriiceous.

spellings), Wbo went to I'aris and wus

GOLD DUST will
sterilize   your kitchen   things and
make them wholesome and sariitary
Soap only cleans; GOLiTdUST cleans and
sterilizes.
Soap washes over the surface, leaving a weasv
film behind it; GOLD DUST digs deep after"genua
and impurities, and insures purity and safety.
Soap needs muscle help (as an exerciser, it's
fine); GOLD DUST does all the hard part of the
work without your assistance, leaving you to take
your exercise in a more enjoyable manner.
GOLD DUST is a good, honest, vegetable oil
soap, to which is added other purifying materials
in just the right pro- \ I /
portions to cleanse \^\l////^<
easily, vigorously, J^ -**��� /y^
and without harm to.- '
