Throw, Important thing which the;
L council did at their session last,
Lwtt to appoint several engineers
igflnm, nto operate .he new electric
^ht ���lam over the head of the Cry
Editor, the legitimate head of the
terra.in. The anpoimm.nt of the
w m recommended by thc light
tad telephone committee. There was
|(fUtion of ihe men's competence.
||ns the fact that they directly ig-
Efcd ,h. considers ion due to the head
fa ik-parunuiil in tho selection of his
U.
Aldrman Pattullo at  once saw the
point at Issu.  and drew  attention  to
Hi ihiiuR.ii Lhat  the appointment
Iof all eaginci r* should be left In the
hinds of the city .ngintir in the same
IHyisthf Br. chief chose hi: men.
This pointed objection to the pro-
Iceeding had the effi ot of unmasking the
fill object of the commltWa rocom-
DtndKion.    It   provided   an   opening I
Ior Alderman Newton and Alderman
lUdj.ch to get in their kick against .he
mme.
IVi.h slow   und   steady   solemnity
JiMiTOtm Newton expressed the  view
win out ol the greatest mistakes the
ptmicipality could make was giving too
much /OTvr io the  heads of  depart-
j.-nents.  Of course h.  did not mean to
kfkot upon the said official-* by calling
���their capacity for  trustiness  into   ac-
Icount.  It wus g matter of principle���
nt a matter of principle.
Aldtrman Hildi.cli got in his spike
by alleging the humorous reason thai
thc city engine, r had already too much
on his hands.
Alderman Pattullo did not allow the
point to pass without pointing oui that
even the city engineer himself was not
immune from ih. Interference of the
touncil. If at any time .hey thought he
was not doing his duty properly ihey had
ther remedy at hand.
I Thecommiu.rc'srt'Commviida ion tarried, and henceforth the city engineer
may not uVun elect hi:; own ;esisuii.ts.
Arising ou*. of the same committee
report   Alderman   Clayton   asked   for
information   regarding    the   surveying
par.y which is now working OH behalf
of the city at Shawatian's Lake.   The
pan of the r.*por, in the Opiimisi which

OUR BLUNDERING
CITY FATHERS
As a result of  the   precipitate   1
hurry of the new Council to dis-   j
miss the late City Solicitors, and
distribute the  City's  legal  patronage around, the  Council  was
called upon last night  to  pay   a
bill of $496 sent  in *by   Messrs.
Williams & Manson. The account
represented a month's salary for
the  City  Soliritors   and   steno-
grpaher,  they having  been  dismissed peremptorily an.l without
notice.    The account was sent to
the Finance Committee.

Wilh his'boat, ihe launch "I'orch.r,"
wrecked on the rocks of Zayas Island,
and after several narrow iseapis from
death hy drowning, exposure and starvation, Frank Bnglor, his eleven y. ar
old son Tom, and Jack Hill WeTO brought;
back to the port on the I'rince Albert
this morning. They have a thrilling
story to tell, and are deeply grateful to
Providence, to Captain Wearmouth
and the crew of the Prince Albert for
their part in saving their lives.
According to the story as told by Mr.
Kugler, he left Prescott Island at ten
o'clock last Wednesday morning in his
launch in order to come to Prince Rupert.
It was a fine day, and by evening they
were within sight of the lights of the
port. Suddenly a snow storm rose
i obscuring their view, and for some
| hours they had to drill. At midnight
when the snow ceased they were outside
Metlakatlu.
A storm was raging then, and they
found it impossible to get a line to the
lighthouse or to find a bottom for
anchorage. Thinking to find shelter
they made for Lawyer Island, but with
daylight on Thursday morning the sin
rose mountianx high, thick snow- storms
came on, and fearful lest their gasoline
should give out and leave them wiihout
any ho|>e of making land tha two men
decided to stop the engine and drift.
At  Mercy  of Storm
All that day ihey were ban ling with
the waves which broke 0V*r their tiny
craft, threatening to capeize it, One
great wave which broke over them
carried away their mast. When at last
the storm lifted toward evening they
were abreast of Alaska Lands. While
making for land the storm suddenly
veered to the north, another snow storm ,
descended and they were obliged to
drift back again over their long course.
On Friday they attempted to get
way on by rigging up a jury mast with
a bit of canvas, and after a terrible
struggle with the cold winds and raging
sea managed to sight land again toward
evening. By this time the unfortunate
| men had quite lost their bearings and
I knew not where they were, but de-
i tcrmined to try and effect a landing,
nnd gel away from tho raging billows
which had threatened again and again
to engtilfh them.
Tired and Famished
The surf on ihe shore was w gnu,
that it wat, al lirst impossibb  to mak
a landing, but at last through an opining in th.   r.*i f the men br.iugh*. their
little craft into what looked lil. safety.
But   they   hail   nrkoncd   without   th.
lid..    Tired  and  famished,  thty were
wakened up at midnight by the grea.
i waves which broke over i he ret f and
; dashed  their  boat  about.     At   two  in
ithe morning a giant wave sw(pt along
| and struck  the  boat  wilh  surh  fore.
' that ih.-ir anchor chain snapped.   With
in thri-e minutes she wa; hurled against
the jagged rocks, and smashed to bits.
Washed   Ashore
One wave washed  Frank  Kngler off
the  boat,   but   be  managed   to  swim
back.   Taking his son on his shoulders,
and   accompanied   by   .lack   Hill,   he

PRINCE RUPERT. B.C.
Mr. G. C. Emmerson returned from
the south by the Princess Beatrice on
Monday night.
A marriage of much interest to the
people of Prince Rupert was quietly
solemnized recently in thc Roman
Catholic Cathedral, Seattle, by the
Bishop of Seattle, when Madame Artaud
and Mr. Oliver Besner of this city were
united in marriage. The happy couple
will return to Prince Rupert this week.
Mrs. Arnold won the prizes at tho
Afternoon Bridge Club for the month
of January, being highest both in points
and honors and the number of games
played. Mrs. Sweet will entertain the
Club next Monday at her suite in the
Annex.
Mrs. Vernor Smith gave a very jolly
Va'cntine Bridge party on Saturday
evening in honor of Miss Mason. Miss
Rochester and Mr. Hannington won the
first prizes, while the "Boobies," which
were fancy Valentin.*) went to Miss
II, Rochester and Mr. Clancy. Those
prtsent were Mr. and Mrs. A. J. Morris,
Mrs. S. B. Johnson, Miss Mason, Miss
Martin, the Misses Rochester, the
Messrs. Clancy, Wilson, Hannington,
Reitchel, Moore, Crewe, Browne, Agnew
and Mi-Knight.
where in a few minutts she can lay
her hands on any required piece of Information about household matters.
There is no reason why she should not
pin a label on every cotton bag containing clothing, on every box holding
last season's hats and trimmings, on
every trunk full of the odds and ends
of clothes and materials for cloth.*,
which every woman accumulates. These
lists can easily be catalogued for reference.
In this way, instead of taxing her
memory with every scrap of goods and
article of apparel in her possession, instead of having to turn out drawers
and trunks and boxes in the search for
some article that is wanted���all this
woman will have to do is to consult
her catalogue on index, and she will
know exactly where the thing wanted
may be found.
Most women are tidy; most women
dislike dust and dirt; mos, women like
apparent order, but few art the women
who art systematic, who do or can
apply to the business of hous keeping
tbe orderly rule of the shop and the

FREIGHT   AND   PAS8BNQBR AfiEXT I
Women Urged to Be Sensible
Mrs. John A. Logan recently made a
forceful arraignment of thc prevailing craze for dress. She catalogues
thc various fads as the "bunco games"
of manufacturers and modistes; she
says that the fashionable woman meekly druises herself like "a maniac or
an idiot" at the orders of her commercial exploiters; that current modish
dresses are an "outrage on decency,"
and so on.
Replying, a New York apologist for
the dress insanity contends that the
freakish dressing tendencies of the current woman are merely indications of
the rapid evolution which the sex is
just now undergoing.
The apologist may note the fact that
some English women have started a
movement for the formation of a socieiy
to combat the increasing vanity of
clothing. Among the propositions which
this society is expected to support are
ithe following: That the cost of clothes
' should be limited to a definite |>ercent-
I age of income, lhat a good antl bcau-
jtiful fashion lie retained as long as
j possible; that all innovations that distort the figure be tabooed; that every
costume should have a pocket; that
gowns should be made so women can
button themselves; that women shall
tnke pride in lieing seen often in the
same   cortume   as   distinct   from   the
vulgarity that seeks frequent change)
thai costumes should be judged nol
by cost but by beauty of form, coloring
and general appropriateness; that simplicity should lie lhe highest merit, nnd
that il be deemed an offense to look like
a fashion plate.
The British women have undertaken
a big job, but they may succeed. They
wouldn't have much difficulty if those
who are abundantly able to dress expensively and indulge in all sorts of
whims would make a fad of simplicity
an.l hold to the Riime style for a year
or so at a time instead of changing
with each phase of the moon as they
do now. But, perhaps, this is too much
to hope for.
Sy.tem in the Household
There is no reason why a woman
should not keep a filing case, something like that in her husband's office,
Decorating a Grey Room
An all-gray room is charming, but a
little cold unless it has here and there
cushions touched with color. The
walls of such a room are tinted or papered in a warm gray, with a cream
ceiling which should be brought down
to the picture molding. Gray enameled
furniture is used, and the cushions,
covers, and curtains are gray, stenciled
in soft shades of lilac and green, with
soft brown. Thc rugs that cover a
gray-stained floor arc of gray-green
hues, and the pictures on the walls
should be framed in gray-stained wood
and white enamel.

OUR   DAILY    RECIPE
Mutton Pie
For a mutton or lamb pie, choose
a front quarter. Strip the meat from the
borne, put the bones to simmer with an
onion. Cut off most of the fat, and
render out. Thc remainder of the fat
and the lean should be cut small and
put through tho meat chopper. To t,ho
chopped meat add enough of the water
from the bones to make a stiff batter.
Season highly with pepper and salt.
This will make enough for five or six
pies, according to the size of the quarter. If too much for pies some of the
meat can be reserved for fried patties
before adding thc water. Thn nastry
can be made using the meat (at in
the sumo proportion s r,��lit.r fat, two
tablespoonfuls to o. cup of flour
making a good pie , and three making a rich one. A nl salt and a little
baking powder, anu enough water to
make a soft dough. Use meat between
two crusts and bake in a quick oven
If the pies are frozen in this weather
they will keep several weeks, but are
never quite as nice as if freshly made.
Some of the quarter may be roasted
if preferred, and the rest used for pics.

The C. P. R. steamer Princess Charlotte was taken off the .riungular run last
trip and will bc the next of this company's
steamers to be convened into an oil-
burner. Upon hof re urn trip she was
replaced by the new steamer Primes**.
Adelaide, which is temporarily tuken
off the Victoria-and-ie^um run for the
purpose.
It is probable that the Charlotte will
be laid up for several weeks, und in
I addition to being fitted wiih oil-bum-
I era, she will receivo a thormgh ov.r

May, which is now tied up at Victoria
The next to be equipped will be the
Princess Victoriu, and in turn all this
company's steamers will be fitted with
the more modi rn filling methods.
In all probability, n pairs to the
steamer Tees of the same company will
compel her lo miss u trip or two to the

recent contact with the rocks in Barke-

United Mine Workers Elect White as
President
Columbus, Ohio, Fub. 6.- J. P. White,
of Oskaloosa. Ia,, was today elected
president of the United Mine Workers
of Amerijca, winning by a popular ballot
of the 360,000 members of that organization, over Thomas L. Lewis, of
Bridgeport, Conn., who for three years
had headed thc organization. Frank
J. Hayes, of Springfield, III., wa-' elected
vice-president, and Edwin Perry wasj
re-elected secretary.
White's vote was 98,9:14 to 72,190
ballots cast for Lewis.
Up to within a week ago ii was expected that Lewis would surely win
out, but the fact that he was hard
pressed then began to leak out and
for some days it has been freely said
that his chances were slim.

\     DEVOTED  PRINCIPALLY  TO  THE  INTERESTS  OF  WOMEN
!
= THE COSY CORNER -
*~.~
ji *************** ***** ������**���
ThU is a Uttle section of the paper, which from day to day will be devoted
to subjects of special interest to women. Any and all of the ladies of Prince Rupert
are invited to contribute to its columns, and to take part in ita discusaiona. Suggestions and criticisms are invited by the editor. The hope is expressed that "The
Cosy Corner" will fill a social need.
Mr. G. C. Emmerson returned from
the south by the Princess Beatrice on
Monday night.
A marriage of much interest to the
people of Prince Rupert was quietly
solemnized recently in the Roman
Catholic Cathedral, Seattle, by the
Bishop of Seattle, when Madame Artaud
and Mr. Oliver Besner of this city were
united in marriage. The happy couple
will return to Prince Rupert this week.
Mrs. Arnold won the prizes at tho
Afternoon Bridge Club for the month
of January, being highest both in points
and honors and the number of games
played. Mrs. Sweet will entertain the
Club next Monday at her suit* in the
Annex.
Mrs. Vernor Smith gave a very jolly
Va'entine Bridge party on Saturday
evening in honor of Miss Mason. Miss
Rochester and Mr. Hanninuton won the
first prizes, while the "Boobies," which
were fancy Valentines went to Miss
M. Rochester and Mr. Clancy. Those
present were Mr. and Mrs. A. J. Morris,
Mrs. S. B. Johnson, Miss Mason, Miss
Martin, the Misses Rochester, the
Mtssrs. Clancy, Wilson, Hannington,
Reitchel, Moore, Crewe, Browne, Agnew
and McKnight.
where in a few minutes she can lay
her hands on any required piece of Information about household matters.
There is no reason why she should not
pin a label on every cotton bag containing clothing, on every box holding
last season's hats and trimmings, on
every trunk full of the odds and ends
of clothes and materials for cloth.s,
which every woman accumulates. These
lists can easily be catalogued for reference.
In this way, instead of taxing her
memory with every scrap of goods and
article of apparel in her possession, instead of having to turn out drawers
and trunks and boxes in thc search for
some article that is wanted all this
woman will have to do is to consult
her catalogue on index, and she will
know exactly where the thing wanted
may be found.
Most women arc tidy; most women
dislike dust and dirt; mos, women like
apparent order, but few art the women
who art. systematic, who do or can
apply to the business of hous keeping
the orderly rule of thc shop and the
office.

Women Urged to Be Sensible
Mrs. John A. Logan recently made a
forceful arraignment of the prevailing craze for dress. She catalogues
the various fads as the "bunco games"
of manufacturers and modistes; she
jays that the fashionable woman meekly dresses herself like "a maniac or
an idiot" at the orders of her commercial exploiters; that current modish
dresses are an "outrage on decency,"
and so on.
Replying, a New York apologist for
the dress insanity contends that the
freakish dressing tendencies of the current woman are merely indications of
thc rapid evolution which thc sex is
just now undergoing.
The apologist may note the fact that
some English women have started a
movement for the formation of a society
to combat thc increasing vanity of
clothing. Among the propositions which
this society is expected to support aro
the following: That the cost of clothes
should be limited to a definite parwnt-
age of income; that a good and beautiful fashion be retained ox long as
possible; that all innovation*, that distort the figure be tabooed; that every
costume should have a pocket; that
gowns should be made so women can
button themselves; that women shall
take pride in being seen often in the
same costume as distinct from the
vulgarity that seeks frequent, change;
that costumes should be judged not
by cost but by beauty of form, coloring
and general appropriateness; that simplicity should be the highest merit, and
that it bo deemed an offense to look like
a fashion plate.
The British women have undertaken
a big job, but they may succeed. They
wouldn't have much difficulty if those
who arc abundantly able to dress expensively and indulge in all sorts of
whims would make a fad of simplicity
and hold to the same style for a year
or so at a time instead of changing
with each phase of the moon as they
do now. But, perhaps, this is too much
to hope for.
Decorating ��� Grey Room
An all-gray room is charming, but a
little cold unless it has here and there
cushions touched with color. The
walls of such a room are tinted or papered in a warm gray, with a cream
ceiling which should be brought down
to the picture molding. Gray enameled
furniture is used, and the cushions,
covers, and curtains are gray, stenciled
in soft shades of lilac and green, with
soft brown. The rugs that cover a
gray-stained floor are of gray-green
hues, and the pictures on the walla
should be framed in gray-stained wood
and white enamel.

OUR   DAILY    RECIPE
Mutton Pie
For a mutton or lamb pie, choose
a front quarter. Strip the meat from tho
bones, put the bones to simmer with an
onion. Cut off most of the fat, and
render out. Thc remainder of the fat
and the lean should be cut small and
put through tho meat chopper. To the
chopped meat add enough of the water
from the bones to make a stiff batter.
Season highly with pepper and salt.
This will make enough for five or six
pies, according to the size of the quarter. If too much for pies some of the
meat can bc reserved for fried patties
baton adding the water. The pastry
can be made using thc meat fat in
the same proportion s other fat, two
tablespoonfuls to one cup of flour
making a good paste, and three making a rich one. Add salt and a little
baking powder, and enough water to
make a soft dough. Use meat between
two crusts and bake in a quick oven
If thc pies are frozen in this weather
they will keep several weeks, but are
never quite as nice an if freshly made.
Some of the quarter may be roasted
if preferred, and tho rest used for pies.

An Amazing Plea
The argument used by Alderman Hilditch and Alderman Clayton ai last
night's council that haste must be used to pay Alderman Newton's printing bill
which lul year's council refused to pay, alleging that if it gels before His Honor
Judge Young during the Week, the court would be obliged to find lhat Alderman
Newton hits do legal claim for the money, is cert ainly the most amazing of arguments.
Woultl either of the geiitleinei. bv so wainonly profligate with their own private
funds as lo want to make haste to settle a disputed account entered b.forc the
court, because they believed lhe claim to be illegal. To urge thc illegality of the
claim ils a reason for paying it, before the court has a chance to pronounce upon
it, is an outrage on the citizens, to say the {***_,
To propose to take the action away from His Honor's jurisdiction for such a
reason would have been amazing enough, even if the settlement was to come out
of thoir own pockets. In the present case the council arc quite aware lhat if they
make B settlement they are giving away not their own money but lhe people's
monoy; not giving it away to an outsider, but to one of their own colleagues, who
is a member of tht finance committee.
To make a payment of $250 of the people's money to one of their own number,
on an account which ihey admit cannot stand in a court of law, sounds perilously
likv malfeasanceof office
It was Alderman Newton who forced the matter to the court by issuing a
writ. He as well as his colleagues, for their own as well as the people's interests,
will be well advised to let the matter remain wiih his Honor that justice may be
done.
The Result in Seattle
The news from Seattle this morning of 'he downfall of Hiram Gill and the
election of a reform mayor is one to gladden the hearts of good men and women
the world over.   It is one of the best of triumphs for woman suffrage.
Seattle, like many oilier const cities, has suffered at the hands of its rulers.
In the present case, aside from the chargt-s of prsonal misconduct on which the
recall was based, Gill's campaign showed that ha was merely tho representative
for the tenderloin, and the grafting clement.
against i be organised machine, "The Bent" as Judge Lindsay calls it, the better
elfin, n. had hitherto bun power*.ss. Nothing bui the enfranchisement of the
WOmon of ihe State has sufficed to save the city from the rule of thc parlor-house
keep, r, :h* saloon, and the political thug. It is a triumph thai good men and
women the world over may rejoice at.

EMPIRE ACCOUNT
IN THE BALANCE
REMITTED   TO   FINANCE   COMMITTEE WITH POWERS
Alderman Pattullo Votes Against
Motion -Says Bill is Three Times
Too Big Hilditch Sayi It Is a
Moral Debt.
Another pre-charter day's account
was brought up al the city counci
meeting lust nighl when the Empire
Publishing company's ICCOUnt was under
Consideration, During the discussion
on the account Merman Newton left
the table and took no part in the discussion which affected his Intensl.
Alderman Pattullo thought the matter should re.it as it was, before the
court:;. They had offered a generous
settlement, but it had been refused.
Aiderniati Hilditch, however, began to
moralize on the subject. He pointed
out that there was no chance for Mr.
Newton if the matter went to the courts
because there is no law to compel
municipalities lo pay debts incurred
prior lo incorporation. It was not a
It gal debt. He thought, however, that
it was a moral debt and one which they
ought to pay.
Alderman Pattullo gave the opinion
that the sum charged in -\w account
was three times too much. And in any
case they need not be in a hurry. When
the bill was presented on the last occasion it was accompanied by a nole
to thc effect ihat if it was not paid by
four o'clock that afternoon a writ
would be issued. It was taken to the
courts; it would bo proper to let the
court decide tho issue. He wanted
tbe city to pay its just debts whether
thty were legal or moral but he did not
want them io pay thrw times too much.
On Alderman Clayton's motion the
account wa sent to the finance com
mittee,Alderman Pattullo voting against
the motion.
It was argued by Alderman Newton's
Mends, that immediate action waa
needed as the case comes before the
court this week, and if payment was
delayed till next council meeting, there
was a dangi'r lhal Judge Young would
tlecide that Alderman Newton w s not
entitled to the money.

HIM  UP AGAINST HILDITCH
Discriminates Against Working Men.
Says They Can Live Cheaper Than
Hello Girls by Living in Shacks���
Hilditch Lands Heavily.
The telephone operators of I'rince
Ituptrt will hail with delight the in-
ormation lhat they are to get a raise
from $50 to $G0 :i month. This action is
-based on the recommendation of the
light and telephone committee. . Any
new operators taken on will be required
to serve as probationers for two months
at $40, after which time, if they prove
to be competent, they will be placed
on the regular staff wilh $60.
Aldtrman Hilditch wanted to know
just how long the girls worked. He
hail heard thai they worked only 6 1-2
hours a day. Aldtrman Kerr informed
him lhat they were working seven hours
just now. At the present time there are
five operators employed but these five
will be able to work the whole system
when it is completed.
Alderman Clayton goi in badly with
his discrimination against the working
man. He said lhat girls could nol live
SO cheaply as men. The latter could
bin a small shack and live much more
cheaply than ihe telephone operators'
who had to live respectably and dress
| nattily.
Alderman Hildilch was after him like
the shot of a gun.    He saw no reason
, in the world why the working men should
be discriminated against.    They  were
as much emit ed as Others to live "re-1
spectably" and druss nattily as anyone.'
| He only Imped that the men who were ���
| acting ao generously with the telephone I
1 operators would not close their hearts i
! when they had to consider the claims',
j of the workmen.
As an indication of how the   system j
is   progressing   Acting   Mayor   Smith
slated that during last month 33 new
, phones were installed.
The committee's report also provided
lhal linancial statements dealing with
j the slectrlo light and lhe telephone be

Representative Nye of Minnesota has
much of the wit of his lamented brother.
Bill Nye. Himself a lawyer, Representative Nye said at a lawyers' banquet in
Minnetpolis:
"Lawyers have grand reputations for
energy and perseverance. A lad said to
his father one day:
" 'Father, do lawyers tell the truth?'
" 'Yes, my boy,' the father answered.
'Lawyers will do anything to win a
case.'"
"How is tho new filing system? Success?" asked the agent of the merchant
to whom he hud sold a "system" a few
days before.
"Great " said the merchant.
"Good " said the agent, rubbing his
hands.   "And how is business?"
"Business?" echoed the merchant.
"Oh, we have stopped business to attend
to the filing system."
With a sigh she laid down the magazine article upon Daniel O'Connel.l
"The day of great men," she said, 'is'
gone forever."
"But the day of beaautiful women is
not," he responded.
She smiled and blushed. "I was only
joking," she explained, hurriedly.

WHERE HAS THE
DEFICIT GONE?
ALD.
PATTULLO   SHOWS   CITY
HAS BIG SURPLUS
Describes Deficit Canard ao nn Oversow of Nonsense from a Source
That Wa, not Likely to Run Dry.
Under the headi-.g of unfinished
business at the city council meeting
last night Alderman Pattullo referred
to the financial statement of last year.
It had been reported fli mboyantly that
the city had a deficit io face whereas
he contended there was a surplus of
$25,000 even wiihout the Grand Trunk's
assessed taxes of $100,000 which brought
it up to 125,000. Thc auditor's report
showed that to bt true. On the sceond
of March whei) they would open tenders
for tht- issue of new debentUM it was as
well that that should be borne in mind.
He quoted figures showing -that even
if they deducted thc rebate to the
G. T. P. and the $2:1,000 for the city
hall, and the $25,000 for thu telephone
system they would still have a surplus.
The iirgumi.ni thai there was a deficit,
he said "was simply an overflow f
nonsense from a s lUTCO thu,. was not
likely to run dry."

TAYLOR ACCOUNT
IS DEFERRED
KNOCKED $1000 OFF IT TO HAVE
SETTLEMENT
Wa* Remitted to Finance Committee
Pattullo Claim, That It Is Still
Too High-Clayton Satisfied With
the Reduction.
The old standing account of Mr.
Taylor, K. C, thc lawyer who did work
for the city in connection with the
Prince Rupert charter was brought up
at the council meeting last night when
communication was read stating that
the sum of $1000 would be accepted
as full payment for the services rendered
if the money was forwarded at an early
date. The original account was for
$2000.
Alderman Pattullo said ihat the price
was still excessive. If he got $500 hc
would be getting enough.
Alderman Clayton took exception
t.o this view. He said that the account
had already been reduced by 50 |ier
cent and he thought they should be
thankful for small mereits. The matter
was referred to thc finance committee.
$100  FOR  CHIEF
Poll,
Chief   Will   Have   Fund   for
Emergency Work
A $100 as an emergency fund. That
is the amount which was voted to the
Chief of Police at the city council meeting last night on the recommendation
of the Police Commissioners. The
fund will doubtless be used for the
secret workings of the force in connection with the ridding of the city of
thc undesirable elements.
