Melbounre, Nov. 4. iSpecial) Thomas Tait, for many years manager of the
stnte railway of Victoria, has resigned
and will return to Canada. In a farewell
speech last night he urged the Victorians I has been maintaining
by a large force and that many were
killed and wounded. The British soldiers
were conveyed on lhe cruiser Proserpine,
and it is reported that the commander
of the vessel WM among the dangerously
wounded.
The conflict has long lieen expected
by diplomats as a result of the difficulties betWMO Kngland, Germany and
France over Russia's attempt to obtain
a port on the Indian ocean. They say
it is likely to be a bad mess, as Russia

IS THIS A JOKE, MR HAYS}
What the Assessor Asks
Payment of a sum of $101,497.50, being payment at the rate of 15 mills on
an assessment of $7,291,600.00. This
is thc assessment of Mr. A. Cuthbert,
who was appointed by the Provincial
Government to assess the property in
Prince Rupert in March last.
What Board of Trade Asks
That the Grand Trunk Pacific taxes
be reduced to $25,897.50, being a rate
of 15 mills on a proposed reassessment
of the railway company's property at
$1.72'"i,500.00. This was the suggestion
of the committee of five appointed by
the Board of Trade.
What the Company Offers
"A sum of $5,000 per annum for a
period of twenty years in lieu and in
full of nil taxes and assessments of
every nature payable during that period in respect of its property in the city
ol Prince Rupert used for railway purposes," vide Mr. Hays' letter.

alienation is made, be rebated in proportion to the amount of land thus
alienated."   This would be agreed to.
Condition No. ;l "That the RailwJy
Co. donate to the city (a) A City Hall
site. lb) Cemetery grounds. (c) A
reservoir site," must be dependent on
the city's action in the other Napvutl
under discussion. The properly which
I understand is desired for the purposes
named is valued at approximately
$215,000. While the company is desirous of acting in a liberal manner in
regard to the sites required for these
purposes, I do not think we could go so
far as to grant land of that value without
receiving some reasonably adequate
compensation.

SELL THE GOVERNMENT LOTS
The suggestion made by Premier McBride at yesterday's conference with
the city council that the Government lots in Section 1 had better be sold before
the expiration of the fiscal year is one that should be made the subject of an order
at an early date. Some such proceeding is certainly due to the remainder of the
property owners in that section upon whom otherwise would fall the burden of
improving the Government lots as well as their own. If for no other reason than
for the clear and forceful way in which the various members of the council laid
this matter before the Premier, the council is deserving of praise. The physical
conformation of Prince Rupert's site, makes it necessary that large initial expenditures be made for the grading of roadways. Contracts for the rough grading
of the remaining four and a half miles of streets in Section 1 were entered into
last night. These will total about $400,000. That they will return dollar for dollar
with interest is certain. But this is no reason why the property owners of the
section should improve one hundred and sixty Government lots for nothing.
There is another aspect of the question too. The rating for these improvements
will have to be made this year. This rating cannot be added to or taken from after
it is fixed. For twenty years the property owners in Section 1 will be paying for
these improvements. If the sale of the Government lots is deferred past the end
of the year, then they will be immune from taxation for these local improvements
for the whole of that period. It would mean civic anarchy for one portion of the
property owners to be paying the whole of the improvement bill, while the latecomers, who may later on purchase the Government lots, would sit with their hands
in t heir jeans, watching their neighbors pay the bills.
We may all sympathize with Premier McBride's difficulties in his desire to
get as much as possible for the Province for the lots, without retarding the progress
of the city. Perhaps of the two methods of meeting the situation, paying a share
or selling out, it would be a more satisfactory settlement of the case for the Government to put its property in Section 1 on the market.

LOTS EQR SALE
HE HAS OUR SYMPATHY
Trouble, of Editor of Ketchikan Miner Moving Hi. Plant
This paper is somewhat abbreviated in
size and curt ailed  in  news this week;
| whereas   it   should   be   voluminous   in
| extent  and pregnant with information.
| Court is in session and there is material
enough   to till two newspapers and only
for the lack of lime, and fear of contempt, we could a tale unfold to entrance
the oars of gossip lovers.   There is the
case of a man who is accused of selling
i two   dollar's   worth   of   hooch   to   an
, Indian.    With half that much hooch a
story might be hatched up to tingle th��
1 risibility of the community and land the
writer in the donjon keep.   Donjon keep
is a medievalism, and being so, it wears
a peculiar relish for courts of law, and
thus excuses writers who use the term
from liability to a sweating by the grand
jury.
Then there are some divorce proceedings proceedings that are always
1 full of ginger and tears, broken hearts
and purses and blasted hopes. Hud we
time to revel in this mistiness, what a
1 publication could be put on the market
and how it would sell.
But we haven't the time, because the
time is taken up with moving a lot of
junk which is designated in the mortgage
as "presses, type, stands, cases and
racks, together with the appurtenances
appertaining to the publication of a
I newspaper."
Not only is time an interfering condition;   but  inclination.    Kor who can
: write after he has been waited over the
I eye with a monkey wrench?    Who can
[ think   clearly   when   he   is   under   the
i press squirting black oil into the hinges
of a gilderlluke?    Who can  hear with
| a gob of cold grease in his ear?   Who has
inclination  to  please the  public  when
his back aches and his lung is full of
gasoline?
Men have said thut it is cheaper to
move than to pay rent. That is a lie,
Bad il we ever have it to do over again
we will pay our rent. Another thing;
why should a grasshopper press and u
handful of type swell into seventeen
dray loads when you come to move it?
Think of all this grief and then wonder
why one man should be arrested for
offering two dollar's worth of hooch to
a troubled soul. Perhaps the Indian
who wanted the hooch had a printing
office to move; if so he has but to tell i
his story and his benefactor will go
forth a free and much persecuted man.

DELICIOUS   BIT   OF   HUMOR
In these days of political strife, the
following bit of genuine humor, written by an angry constituent to an
Australian member of parliament may-
prove interesting.
"Deer Sur -You're a dam fraud, and
you know it. I don't care a rap for
the position or foe the muney either,
but you could have got it for me if
you wasn't as mean as muck. Two
pounds a week ain't any moar to me
than 40 shillin's is to you, but I object to bein' made an infernal fool of.
Soon as you was elected by my hardworking friends a feller wanted to bet
me that you wouldn't be in the house
moren a week before you made a ass
of yourself. I bet him a Cow on that,
as I thought you was worth it then.
After I got your note sayin' you da-
Mined to ackt in the matter I druv
the Cow over to the Keller's place an'
tole him he hud won her. That's orl
I got by howlin' myself horse for you
on   election   day   and   months   befour.
| You not only hurt a man's Pride, but
you injure him in bizness. I believe
you think you'll get in gen. I don't.
An' what I don't think is of moar |
konsequence than you imajin. I believe you take a pleshir in cuttin' your
best friends, but wate till the clouds
roll by an' they'll cut you -just behind
the Ear, where they butcher cuts the
pig. Yure ho man. Yure only a tule.
Go to hel. I lowers myself ritin' to
a skunk, even tho I med him a member
I of Parliament.���Exchange.
The calmness of a man is frequently
the cause of a woman's storm.

SELL THE GOVERNMENT LOTS
The suggestion made by Premier McBride at yesterday's conference with
the city council that the Government lots in Section 1 had better be sold before
the expiration of the fiscal year is one that should be made the subject of an order
at an early date. Some such proceeding is certainly due to the remainder of the
property owners in that section upon whom otherwise would fall the burden of
improving the Government lots as well as their own. If for no other reason than
for the clear and forceful way in which the various members of the council laid
this matter before the Premier, the council is deserving of praise. The physical
conformation of Prince Rupert's site, makes it necessary that large initial expenditures be made for the grading of roadways. Contracts for the rough grading
of the remaining four and a hall miles of streets in Section 1 were entered into
last night. These will total about $400,000. That they will return dollar for dollar
with interest is certain. But this is no reason why the property owners of the
section should improve one hundred and sixty Government lots for nothing.
There is another aspect of the question too. The rating for these improvements
will have to be made this year. This rating cannot be added to or taken from after
it is fixed. For twenty years thc property owners in Section 1 will be paying for
these improvements. If the sale of the Government lots is deferred past the end
of the year, then they will be immune from taxation for these local improvements
for the whole of that period. It would mean civic anarchy for one portion of the
property owners to be paying the whole of the improvement bill, while the latecomers, who may later on purchase the Government lots, would sit with their hands
in t heir jeans, watching their neighbors pay the bills.
We may all sympathize with Premier McBride's difficulties in his desire to
get as much as possible for the Province for the lots, without retarding the progress
of the city. Perhaps of the two methods of meeting the situation, paying a share
or selling out, it would be a more satisfactory settlement of the case for the Government to put its pro|>eriy in Section 1 on the market.

LAND  PURCHASE  NOTICE
HE HAS OUR SYMPATHY
Troubles of Editor of Ketchikan Miner Moving Hi. Plant
This paper is somewhat abbreviated in
size und curtailed in news this week;
whereas it should be voluminous in
extent and pregnant with information.
Court is in session and there is material
enough to lill two newspapers and only
for the luck of time, and fear of contempt, we could a tale unfold to entrance
the ears of gossip lovers. There is the
case of a man who is accused of selling
two dollar's worth of hooch to an
Indian. With half that much hooch a
story might he hatched up to tingle the
risibility of the community and land the
writer in the donjon keep. Donjon keep
is a medievalism, and being so, it wears
a peculiar relish for courts of law, and
thus excuses writers who use the term
from liability to a sweating by the grand
jury-
Then there are some divorce proceedings���proceedings that are always
full of ginger and tears, broken hearts
and purses and blasted hopes. Had we
time to revel in this mistiness, what a
publication could be put on the market
and how it would sell.
But we haven't the time, because the
time is taken up with moving a lot of
junk which is designated in the mortgage
as "presses, type, stands, cases and
racks, together with the appurtenances
appertaining to the publication of a
newspaper."
Not only is time an interfering condition; but inclination. For who can
write after he has been welted over the
eye with a monkey wrench? Who can
think dearly when he is under the
press squirting black oil into the hinges
of a gilderlluke? Who can hear with
a gob of cold grease in his ear? Who has
inclination to please the public when
his back aches and his lung is full of
gasoline?
Men have said that it is cheaper to
move than to pay rent.   Thut is a lie,
antl il we ever have it to do over again
we will pay our rent.    Another thing;
why should a grasshopper press and a
handful  of  type  swell   into  seventeen
dray loads when you come to move it?
Think of all this grief and then wonder
why one man should  be  arrested  for I
offering two dollar's worth of hooch to
a  troubled  soul.    Perhaps  the  Indian
who wanted thc hooch had a printing
ollice to move;   if so he has but to tell I
his story  and   his  benefactor  will  go;
forth a free and much persecuted man.

DELICIOUS   BIT   OF   HUMOR
In these days of political strife, the
following  bit  of genuine  humor,  written   by   an   angry   constituent   to   an j
Australian member of parliament may !
prove interesting.
"Deer Stir ���You're a dam fraud, and
you know it. I don't care a rap for!
the position or foe the muney either,
but you could have got it for me if
you wasn't as mean as muck. Two i
pounds a week ain't any moar to me
thu 40 shillin's is to you, but I ob-
ject to bein' made an infernal fool of.!
Soon as you was elected by my hard-
WOfking friends a feller wanted to bet
me that you wouldn't be in the house
moren a week before you made a ass
of yourm-lf. I bet him a Cow on that,
U I thought you was worth it then.
After I got your note sayin' you de-
klined to ackt in the matter I druv'
the Cow over to the Keller's place an'
tole him he had won her. That's orl
I got by howlin' myself horse for you
on election day and months befoar.
You not only hurt a man's I'ride, but
you injure him in bizness. I believe,
you think you'll get in gen. 1 don't.
An' what I don't think is of moar
konscquence than you imajin. I believe you take a pleshir in cuttin' your
best friends, but wate till the clouds
roll by an' they'll cut you -just behind
the Ear, where they butcher cuts the
pig. Yure ho man. Yure only a tule.
Go to hel. I lowers myself ritin' to
a skunk, even tho I med him a member
of Parliament.���Exchange.
The calmness of a man is frequently
the cause of a woman's storm.

The man who bought that barrel stuck a
label on the top,
Then told the interviewers of a shortage
in the crop;
Ami when he came to sell it to a buyer on
the floor
lie added on his profit and half a dollar
more.
The man who shipped that barrel stuck
his label on it, too.
And talked of early freezes and the damage that they do;
The man to whom he shipped it said the
grower's price was high
And raised the price two dollars more
than in other days none by.
The man who Stored that barrel told of
shortage in the pick,
Of scale and Other [H'Sl.s that make the
apple orchards sick,
And he put five dollars on to the cumulative price
And so it went, each handler taking out,
his little slice.
O. when you eat this apple, may it till you
with delight
To know that some one profits on each
nibble and each bite.
And, 0, be glad you do not live so very
fur away
From where the apple started, for think
what you'd have to pay!

In France certain experiments havel the principal constituents of air, have
succeeded in sending a balloon to an I been experimentally liquified and solid-
elevation of sixteen thousand meters, ified. What, then, is the condition of
or about ten miles. There were no the air at heights where the temperature
people in the balloon, but it carried a   is so low?
variety of self-registering instruments Answer has been made to this ques-
designed to record the temperatures, the tion that the air there loses its gaseous
atmospheric pressure, etc. The little condition and becomes changed into a
balloon was started on its lofty trip ( series of minute crystals or drops which
about noon when the air was remark-' follow the earth in its motions through
ably  clear  and  still.    It  rose rapidly space,   and   are   constantly   vaporixed
i and in three quarters of an  hour had  when falling in regions where the temper-
attained an elevation of ten miles, at   ature is somewhat above their point of

It was there subjected to an atmos- ing effects t produced by temperature,

, height was due to the fact that the \ by the French experimenters is correct,
temperature does not vary sensibly ! at an elevation of a few miles above the
with the elevation of a floating body  ground the air is either liquid or solid, or
I after  the latter  has  attained  an  ulti- j both.
. tude   where   seven-eights   of   the   at-1 	
mosphere  is  lacking  and  where  there j
remains no trace of water vapor.
But toward six o'clock, when, with
the   decline   of   day,   the   temperature j
: began to fall rapidly, the balloon started
backward toward the earth, arriving |
with a gentle motion which did not
disturb the instruments it carried at
eleven minutes past seven at the point
from which it had statred.
The balloon was visible through a I
telescope during the entire time. It
shone like the planet Venus seen by
day. By means of a micrometer attached to an astronomical telescope
the apparent diameter of the balloon
could easily have been measured, and
this would have furnished a means of
calculating its altitude independent of
the record of the barometer which it
carried.
The barometer and thermometer were
furnished  with  automatic  pens  driven'
by   clockwork,   by   means   of   which;
diagrams   of   the   changes   of   pressure
> and temperature that the balloon experienced were obtained. At the height
of about seven and three-fourths miles
the thermometer marked a temperature
of sixty degrees Fahrenheit below zero.;
Then the ink  in  the  registering  pens
of both the thermometer and barometer,
became  frozen,  and  the records  were j
interrupted.
But as the baloon continued to rise
the ink was thawed again, and at the
ten-mile level the automatic records
were renewed. The temperature registered there was only about six degree* below zero. The increase of
temperature is ascribed to the effect of
the unclouded sun heating the air in
the basket that contained the instruments. The lowest record of the barometer was one hundred and three
millimeters, or a trifle more than four
Inches.
Attention was called to the fact that
the density of the air at the height of
ten miles, where the balloon remained
during most of the afternoon, is less
than that oxisting upon the plains of
the moon, on the assumption that the
atmospheric density on the moon is proportional to the force of the gravity at
the surface of the earth.
If this ia correct, then the instruments would have behaved about the
same if the experimenters had been
able to place them on the moon, as
they did when they sent them only ten
miles above the earth.
The experiments mentioned above
have suggested the question whether
the air continues to be "air," in the
sense in which we understand it, at a
very great elevation from the earth.
The' dimunition of temperature is so
rapid as to indicate that in inter stellar
apace it must sink at least aa low as four
hundred and fifty degrees or five hundred degrees Fahrenheit below zero,
and perhaps much lower.
But at far less extreme degrees of
cold than these, oxygen and nitrogen,

MADE A LIFF. MEMBER
Kaien   Island  Club  Entertain.  Pre
mier at Informal Reception
I am anxious to Bee some plan devised
for the adjustment of the taxes on a
scalp fair and acceptable to the company
and which would involve as well a
scheme for the early carrying out on
the part of the company its very elabor-
atr plans for the improvement of the
city.
"You are the masters of the situation,
The Government is not going to step
in and force matters in favor of the
company, but it seems to me that the
case is one open to settlement on a
basis fair and favorable to all parties
concerned. And to this end I am prepared to offer my own services if required as agent to help matters towards
any arrangement of the kind suggested."
The Premier went on to say that he
did not blame the city for being on its
guard against the risk of being dis-
advantageously treated by a large
corporation. He agreed that corporations had to be looked into closely. But
he said that he felt the G. T. P. had
considerable ground of complaint regarding their assessment.
"The Grand Trunk Pacific," went on
the Premier, "is wedded to Canada and
Canada is wedded to the Grand Trunk
Pacific. The road has got to be built
and it is up to B. C. to treat with the
company in a fair and generous way.
It would not be fair to say to the company, for instance. 'Here we have a
cinch upon you. You have got to
come through British Columbia and
you have to pay for it.' Though tempted
perhaps by political considerations to
rule otherwise the Government at I he
time had not demanded much revenue
from the G. T. P. on its entering British
Columbia. With the same spirit animating the city council of Prince Rupert matters might be arranged amicably
with the company, and 1 should be
glad," said the Premier, "to see this
situation of armed neutrality done
away with, and a belter understanding
arrived at. I think you would find
il a good thing all round to settle up
and get rid of the difficulty."
Aid.   Pattullo   here   pointed   out   to
the  Premier that  the  idea  that there
was  any   ill   feeling  between  the city
j       and company was incorrect.
*B      The   Premier  referred   to   and   read
���> extracts from correspondence from  Mr
I   D'Arcy Tate of the G. T. P. to himself
j   on the disputed matter, stating that he
f   had made no promise to interfere with
1   the   legislation   in   this   affair.     The
.j  following ure sentences from  the letters
| [ read:
XX      "We don't seek exemption, but only
*��* that the assessment be put at a fixed
=���1 reasonable sum for say fifteen years."
"If the railway terminus were not at
I'rince Rupert could you sell the land
on the lownsile al a dollar an acre."
This in support of the contention thai
il was not the city that made the railway
but the railway thul made the city.
The Premier went on to say thai the

Premier   McBride  was  hurried  away

a large number of whom were awaiting
him. An item of interest was the
presentation of an address of welcome
from the club, which, soon after the
Premier's arrival was read to him by
President Roerig and duly presented.
The Premier made a brief and appreciative response and was then presented with a life membership in the
club. The certificate of his membership
is a dainty work of art, beautifully
bound in burnt leather work and carrying
a silver plate upon which the name of
the distinguished holder of the certificate
was engraved. Mr. McBride said he
should have pleasure in hanging this
souvenir of his trip in his library and
that whenever he again made a trip
to Prince Rupert he should take pleasure
in availing himself of the courtesies so
kindly extended to him.
Self-esteem is a brand of yeast that
enables a man to rise in his own estimation.
the matter
"I would say, gentlemen, in conclusion," he said, "that if you could
devise some fair and reasonable scheme
whereby a fixed and reasonable taxation
for a certain tenn of years could be
settled upon between you and the
company, it would be a great advantage.
I say this as the friend of both parties
and most anxious that the city of Prktce
Rupert should have every chance."
Replying to the Premier on behalf
of the council, the Mayor said that tt
was unfortunate that the idea existed
existed that there was any quarrel
between the city and the G. T. P. He
went over the story of the council's
dealings with Mr. Hays and the request
for a proposition from him which they
would put to the people.
"The mention of the people," said
the Mayor, "sent the thing up in the
air. From what I know of the people
In this city," he went on. "I don't
think  they will feel like granting any
great exemptions. And 1 don't care
to see the G. T. P. come to the people
with a proposition only to get turned
down." The Mayor suggested that an
order in council should be passed for a
new Court of Revision.
The Premier said that he understood
that the objections of the G. T. P. referred eh\efly to taxes on track areas
not lots, and Aid. Pattullo said that this
was so.
There followed some tentative discussion during which the Premier said
that the British Columbia Provincial
Government had given the G. T. P.
exemption for ten years after completion
of the line through the province, and
Aid. Lynch asked the Premier what he
would suggest the city's attitude should
be.
"Candidly gentleman," said the Premier, "where you as a city are just in
the early stages of development as at
present in Prince Rupert it is well to
weigh the cost of any attitude you may
assume towards a corporation whose
interests affect yours as in this case. I
believe that the city is entitled to grant
exemption to the G. T. P. as much as
the Government. Speaking as the friend
of all concerned, I hope to see the
G. T. P. going ahead with these works as
soon as possible."
Aid. Hilditch asked the Premier if
the proposition should come from the
city first or from the G. T. P.
The Premier: "Certainly it should
come from the company. There is no
reason for you to be suppliants."
Aid. Hilditch said he was anxious
for things to go in harmony, but it
must be remembered that Prince Rupert
was not just like Victoria or Vancouver.
The G. T. P. had already realited large
sums of money from the sale of Prince
Ru|>ert lots.
The Premier: "They are going to
put it all back though."
Aid. Hilditch: "That may be, but
we have to spend large sums on sewers,
streets, etc."
The Premier went on to say that
after all thc people are the judges of the
matter, and can satisfy themselves of
the capacity of the men they appoint
to manage municipal affairs. The G. T.
P. of course would have to make out
a very strong rase.
The Mayor asked the Premier about
the holding of another Court of Revision
but the Premier seemed to think this
would be a difficult matter to arrange.
He w-ould approach such a pro|iosal
with lhe greatest possible care. Ii
might establish a precedent that would
put the Government in a very difficult
position regarding other matters.
The Mayor then called on the city
clerk to read the letter from C M. Hays
in reference to the assessment question,
published on this page, after hearing
which the Premier suggested that some
one should be deputed by the G. T. P. to
come and negotiate on the subject with
the city council.

CITrS REQUESTS
CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1
approve of the plana until it (the
I cityl has had an opportunity of
seeing them, as it desires ingress ansd
egrets through Hays Creek for municipal purposes with scows, small
1 boats, etc.
The idea was in reference to a place
(for the handling of garbage.   Camerons
Bay and  Hays Creek were mentioned
as suitable places for scows to be handled.
' Camerons Bay in particular was regarded
' as specially ��tiitable owing to its nearness
to the i'.;.,   electric  plant  where coal
would need to be landed etc.
The Premier mentioned that there
had been some hitch in the filing of the
G. T. P. company's plans covering the
filling in of these points on the waterfront. Mr. Tate had imformed him
that theae had been filed with the
! Railway department at Ottawa but it
seemed that Mr. Tate had been mistaken. The Premier did not think that
the B. C. Government would have any
power to interfere. Mr. Hays had
represented that the intention of the
company was to put ten tracks in here,
the idea being to have terminal facilities
for handling rail traffic at rock bottom
prices.
(5) Government lot* now unsold
pay no share of the cost of improvements under the Local Improvement Plan, although they receive
the tame benefit as property which
carries the taxation for same. The
city requests either that these lota
contribute their proportion or that
they be sold immediately so that
improvement taxes can be collected
on them.
The Premier after hearing the arguments on this matter said that it semed
' to him the city was pressing the Gov-
ernment pretty hard to sell these lots.
He added, however, that he thought
the best way would be to have a sale
and wind them up.
(6) The city requests that park sites
be set aside and reserved for a
Municipal park along both tides of
Hays Creek, and alto from tide water
at Shawatlant Pattage, thence along
both thoret of Shawatlant Lake and
embracing  about   500  acret   at   the
��� upper end of the lake.
The Premier requited that a memo.
' setting   forth   the   various   portions   of I
land   suggested   as   parks   lie   prepared
and -������in him.   It would be necessary to '
pass an act of parliament on the matter,
Inn this would have early attention.
(7) That all school titet in the city [
| be trantferred to the city, to be uted
by the municipality for school
j purposes only.
The Premier will receive a memo, also
upon this matter and promises early
attention to it.
8 Title to retervior tite, and right-
of-way for water pipe line.
Thc Premier said he would see that
this was granted
(9) That government reserve be
placed on watershed and drainage
are* of Woodworth Lake to preserve
the purity of the water.
The Premier asked if there were any
timber claims involved in the area
mentioned and was told there were none
but there might be an Indian reserve.
He asked that plans showing the watershed and completed survey be sent
him and promised his attention to the
matter.
(10) Cemetery site.
Regarding  this  matter  the   Premier
expressed the opinion that the portion
of the townsite suggested for the ceme-
tery seemed to him so situated as to
! give a depressing impression to the
visitor approaching the city from the
harbor if used as a cemetery. He asked
that a memo, on this subject also be sent
him saying that the matter was one
requiring careful consideration u after
difficylties were apt to arise over property
! adjoining cemetery sites granted.
(11) Incorporation Act amended re
inscribed stock.
After hearing City Solicitor Williams
! on this matter the Premier said that he
thought this could Ih> very well provided
( for under the General Act which seemed
I to him a very suitable way of tinanring
! municipalities.
