OCAL 0PT10N1STS BEGIN THEIR CAMPAIGN
esent Conclusions of a Letter Writer in the "Optimist" and Will
Print Copies of the Act.���Want It Made Clear It Is
the Bar Not Liquor They Are Fighting.
A start in the local option campaign

olish the bar or not was made last
[ht, when the Ixical Option party met
the Presbyterian church to elect its
leers und arrange its plan of campaign.

fcr W. E. Williams.

Commissioners By Vote
A letter of Rev. D. Spencer touching
on the election of police commissioners
and license commissioners by popular
vote wiis brought up by Mr. R. C. Bean.
Rev. Chas. R. Sing said the question
opened up a great issue. It had always
appeared to him (hat the Americans
had the advuntage over the Canadians
in the appointment of their own law
officers. Ours was a roundabout method
of obtaining officers to enforce the laws.
At the suggestion of Mr. A. Rowe a
special committee was appointed to
frame a reply to Mr. Spencer's letter.
Preaa Committee  Needed
Mr.   T.  J.   Davidson   suggested   the
appointment    of    a    press    committee
saying that the other side had already
started   with   their   old   stock-in-trade
. arguments, which were mostly insinuation and abuse, and while nothing had
j yet appeared worthy of reply it was the
.duty of this association to spill its much
printer's ink as the other side.
Rev. \V. G. James thought il wits just
as well the campaign should be made an
(CONTINUED ON PACE 8.)
and said his neighbor was doing so
already. Aid. Naden thought that it
was provided in the Building By-law
that lot owners should pay for these
retaining walls.
In view of the doubt on this point
and the possible hardship on lot owners
who have already paid if later the city
pays for other retaining walls, the whole
matter is referred to the streets committee for investigation.

Meeting of the  Council-
Tile city council sal late last night.
The business to blame for the prolonged
sitting was the Electric Light By-law
which Aid. Pattullo was anxious to
have passed, und submitted to the
people at an early date. Some intricate
calculations about capital and interest
and sinking funtl were necessary to
fill certain blanks in the By-law, and it
wits necessary to call in the aid of the
city engineer and Mr. Clements.
The By-law provides for the creation
of a debt of $66,000 to erect an electric

SOME OF QUESTIONS PROPOSED
IN AUSTRALIA
Area Set Aside Where Teaching* of
Socialism Can Be Practically Tested���Seismograph Indications of
Submarine Upheaval in Pacific.
(Special to the Optimist!
Melbourne,  Nov.   15. -Great  amusement has been caused by a novel form
of bill introduced for the taking of the
census next  year.    There is no doubt
when  this  measure  comee  before  the
house it will be drastically amended.  It
asks such questions as:
"Arc you a total abstainer?"
"What amount of money do you earn?"
"How much money have you now, and
so on.
An area is to be set aside upon which
the teachings of Socialism are to be put
into operation and thc results carefully
watched and studied.
The seismographs at Melbourne. Sydney and Adelaide this morning recorded
great earthquake shocks, pointing to a
submarine upheaval some two thousand
miles out in the Pacific.
With the grading of the streets comes
the problem for certain lot owners of
how to keep their lots low free from the
grading material dumped in the fill
adjoining their lots. Through the City
Engineer at lust night's council a request was made that permission be
granted for the erection at certain points
of temporary wooden bulkheads to
keep the dum|ied material from sliding
down into the lots.
Aid.  Pattullo thought this led to a
! big question���the question of the city's
! responsibility   in   the   matter   of   the
construction of retaining walls.
Aid. Hilditch thought il would not
I do to allow timber bulkheads to be
1 put up on muskeg unless in such a
: position as to leave room for the sub-
! sequent construction of retaining walls.
i The question of whether the owner
'of the lot or the city should build the
retaining wall was also opened.
Aid. Pattullo was inclined to think
j that the city must build all retaining
'walls. Aid. Lynch was prepared to
1 pay for them on his own lots himself
SITUATION   IN  TEXAS

Springs   to   Revenge  Lynching
'Special to the Optimist)
Austin, Tex., Nov. 15.���A dispatch
just received from Edwards county says
that armed Mexicans are marching to
Rock Springs to take revenge upon the
Americans for the recent lynching there
of a Mexican murderer named Rodriguez. All the sheriffs and deputies
have been ordered out and Governor
Campbell has promised to send the
state rangers.
MEAT TO BE CHEAPER
Abundance of Farm Product* Must
Lower Present High Price*
'Special to the Optimisti
Washington, Nov. 15. -The price of
meats is bound to decline soon, according to Secretary of Agriculture
Wilson. He joins with Charles F.
Armour in the prediction thut the
uhundance of farm protlucls must cause
a drop in the markets.
Triple Guard Around;' Prison a*
Lynching I* Feared -Prisoner Alleged to Have Fired Wood* to Hide
HI* Crime.
(Special to the Optimisti
Asbury Park, N. J., Nov. 16.���Heavily
guarded to prevent his being lynched by
un angry mob, Thomas Williams, alias
"Black Diamond " a negro, was arraigned in the police court this morning
for his preliminary hearing on the
charge of having maltreated and murdered Marie Smith, it little girl if nine
years of age.
The girl had been missing for some
time. Her body, horribly mutilated,
was found in the woods by men fighting
a fire which it is believed the negro
started to hide his crime.
Excitement run high upon the discovery and there was great difficulty
in getting the prisoner safely jailed.
Then a triple guard was placed around
the  building and  has  lieen  maintained
' to lhe present.
The autopsy showed thai the girl had
I been struck on the head with a hatchet
but   before this she had been strangled
I to   death   with   her   hair  ribbon.     The
I face  was  bitten  und  scratched  so that
the features were scarcely recognizable.
, Hospital  Board  to  Meet
There will be a meeting of thc General
Hospital Board in the County Court
Room tomorrow, Wednesday, at 4:30

COUNCIL WELCOMES THE "NEWEST CITIZEN"
Visit of the "Mayor's Namesake" to Aid. Mobley's Home Made Subject of Official
Felicitations���"One Touch of Nature Makes Whole Council Kin."
Compliments of the city council of
Prince Rupert���B. C.'s "Baby Metropolis"���to Aid. Mobley on the visit to
his home of the Mayor's namesake���Sir
Stork    with a rosebud baby girl.
Aid. Naden suggested the happy
motion and Aid. Pattullo put it to the
council amid a sunburst of smiles.
There was our placid friend Aid.
Harrow beaming through the blue
haze from his big pipe, at the boyishly
bright-eyed interim Mayor at the end
of the council board; and emphasing
the excellence of Aid. Mobley's example
to the councillors and citizens at large.
There was Aid. Hilditch smiling with
thut golden gleam of his under his
black moustache. Aid. Mclntyre���the
"Nestor" of the council wore his most
pleasantly paternal expression; there
wac a humorotiR dimple playing at the
corner of Aid. Smith's usually so stem
und business like mouth, und even the
serious mintled Aid. Lynch allowed the
infectious good humor of the occasion to
dissolve his dignified reserve for a
moment.
Aid. Pattullo in happy words cordially
recommended  Aid.   Mobley's  good  ex
ample, tendered the council's felicitations to their brother alderman, and
wished the little lassie every possible
good fortune. The motion was carried
with hilarity and enthusiasm. Never
was council so charmingly unanimous!
The hero of the hour, relumed a
graceful word or two of thanks, hoping
that many others in Prince Rupert
would have a similar pleasure; then with
thut merry twinkle of his in his eyes he
recalled the demands of duty with the
words:

new business?" THE   PRINCE    RUPERT    OPTIMIST

WHAT   WOMEN   ARE   DOING
Two Boston women went up in airships at the recent Harvard meet of
aeroplanists, one of them a newspaper
woman, Miss Elizabeth Ladd, who rode
with Willard, and the other Miss Catherine Reed, a high school teacher in
Washongton, D. C, who was taken up
by Graham White.
One year ago Miss Agnes O'Day was
named a Deputy County Clerk in
Boulder County, Colorado, by Olney
Newell. At the election just held there
Miss O'Day defeated her former boss,
and was nominated for County Clerk,
the position formerly held by Newell.
A club for "Lady Servants" is soon
to be opened in London, the object of
the club being to give such servants
an opportuntiy of enjoying the social
life which their position often deprives them of. The club rules permit
members to invite male friends to dine
with them at the club and enjoy a quiet
rubber of bridge.

MAXIMS OF A MARCHIONESS
The Marchioness Townshend, known
at one time as "the most beautiful
woman in England," and heroine of a
notorious title-purchase affair, has written a book entitled "Maxims and
Musings." Here are a few of the epigrams:
If you try to throw dust in a person's eyes, you must not be surprised
if they eventually become blind to your
good points.
Men like to compare women to lilies:
but remember there are Tiger lilies.
The women of the East veil their
faces in order to appear less beautiful
to men���the women of the Weat veil
themselves that they may appear more
beautiful.
You patch up a quarrel, but the
patches nearly always show.
I would rather have "ways" than
'means." The young woman who has
"ways" generally marries better than
the young woman who has "means."
The small courtesies and compliments
which a man pays his wife become a
powerful chain to bind them together.
The woman who dyes her hair from
dark to fair, and viae versa, offers an
insult to her Maker.
People may call a man heartless, but
they forget that perhaps he was generous once and gave liis heart away.
If you cannot marry the man you
love, be sure to marry the man who
loves you.
If a woman is asked which she would
rather have, a past, a present, or a
future, she would generally choose a
present.
It may be very clever of a man to
make a woman think he is a god; it ia
far more clever of a woman to make him
think she believes it.
juicy, with white fat, firm and abundant.
Game, which displays white non-discolored flesh when a few feathers are
plucked from the under-leg.
Fish, with the flesh thick and firm,
and the gills red. If an impression
made with the finger remains, the fish is
stale.
Vegetables which are crisp, firm and
bright green.
Oranges and lemons, with thin skins,
because they are usually the most
juicy.
Home-Made Cold Cream
To make sure of getting a cold cream
in which there are no animal oils many
women like to compound their own
massage creams.
They often fail to get results from a
good reciepe by not understanding the
art of compounding. All cold creams
are made in the same way. The fatty
substances are put in a double boiler
and melted, stirring constantly. When
all are melted turn out in a bowl and
stir, scraping down from sides.
The chief trouble comes in adding
the extracts and astringents, which
must be added gradually when the fatty base is partially cold. Add first any
perfumed water, drop by drop, beating
constantly with a silver fork, then all
tinctures or extracts last of all. These
go in drop by drop also.
A flat wire egg-beater can be used
successfully when a large amount of
the mixture is being made up, and one
woman swears by a mayonnaise mixer
for compounding her toilet creams.

Does the peaceful mouser, beloved of

case, and he backs up his assertion with

Vancouver, Nov. 11.���An extraordinary race between rival survey parties
representing the Howe Sound & Northern Railway of Vancouver, and the
Grand Trunk Pacific Railway, to secure
priority rights of location over the
divide at Summit Lake in the Lillooet
district has just been won by the Vancouver company. The contestants are
still in the field.
A Howe Sound & Northern outfit
in charge of Sir John D. Nelson has
made its locations from Pemberton
Meadows up over the divide and is now
working down the other slope and
has already planted its stakes along
the north side of Anderson Lake, the
real strategic point. By the route thus
recured in advance the local company
whose tidewater terminus is at Newport at the head of Howe Sound has
secureed a grade through a narrow
strip along the lake where there is
scarcely room for two railways. The
cost of construction on the north shore
is estimated to be at least $20,000
a mile less than by the southern shore
of the same lake. This was the news
brought to the city today by Mr. F. \V.
Hunt who returned today from Pemberton Meadows.
Two G. T. P. Outfit*
The Grand Trunk Pacific has two
outfits in the field, one working north
from the lower end of Lillooet Lake,
above Harrison Lake, in the direction
of the summit just surmounted by
the engineers of the rival road, and
the other working west from Lillooet,
on the Fraser, heading for the opposite side of the same divide. When
Mr. Hunt left the Meadows he was
informed by the packer that the early
start made by the Howe Sound &
Northern Company had won a decided
victory. Both Grand Trunk Pacific
parties were each al that date about
thirty-five miles from the divide at
Summit Lake. The outfit working
from Lillooet had not yet reached
Seaton Lake, which lies east of Anderson Lake, one of the keys of the situation. Mr. Hunt expressed his belief
that the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway
parties will be unable to close up the
gnps and tie up their lines before winter
sets in on the summit owing to the great
distance still to be located in either
direction.
Grand Trunk Routs
The Howe Sound & Northern Road
has already been built to a point twelve
miles north of Newport and its line has
now been located to within twenty-five
miles from Lillooet on the Fraser. It
is expected that its party will have
reached Seaton Lake within ten days
and in advance of the rival line, as the
latter had farther to go.
The Grand Trunk Pacific for some
time past has been running a line in
from Harrison Lake and up the Lillooet laice and river with Lillooet as
its objective. A second party was put
in the field ten day3 ago when news
of the activity of the other company
leaked out.

HOW ABOUT THE WATERFRONT?
There is yet another \ ;e�� of the problem o: tbe Grand Trunk Pacific company's
assessment, more i-ir-r. .K-hir.c. to &��� itop�� ���*���*" ""J" of tne ;-'">"'' immediate features
that have been ilioniiil its ttttH upon the development of the waterfront
and the commercial frowth of Priaee Rupert.
In the charter o: the city of Prince Rupert i: is provided that there will be
a single tax upon al! property in ihe city. That tax is only to be levied upon the
real estate. iueepOCllTe of whether the property is improved or unimproved. The
object of the single tai ia to prevent ions-pursed speculators from buying up property at strategic points m the city, and holding them unimproved until the citizens
capitulate ana buy -.heir, back at a "hold-up" price to use for some useful purpose.
The owners ol a block of land in the heart of the city of Liverpool who kept
it for Berenty raora u eyesore, a dlsasjunuMBt and a hindrance to the city's welfare,
were rewarded by seeing it increase in value from twelve pounds to somewhere in
the hundred:- of thousands. Every city and town and village in Candaa can supply
an illustration of this malevolent power of money to exact usury as a reward for
unsocial misuse. It wm to prevent such a s*appening [a this "Liverpool of the
Pacific" that the principle ol the single tax was incorporated in the charter of Prince
Rupert.
But what if. after all. we go and grant long exemptions or near-exemptions
to the railway company's property aiong the waterfront. What virtue will the
single tax then possess to ensure the waterfront development. That would be
locking the stable door even before the horse gets in.
The building of a million dollar hotel, desirable as it may be is of small importance compared to the locating oi some productive industries along the waterfront. If the city consents to some near-exemption plan, what guarantee has it
that the company may not hold ::.t ;>u1'k of its water-frontage for the whole exempted
period, until it can sell at a "hold-up" price.
There is only one sure guarantee that the waterfront will not be held aa a
hindrance to rrir.ee Rupert? growth that is for it to pay an equitable proportion
of taxation w-i:h the remainder of the unimproved property in the c'ty
This is in no sense an accusation of bad faith against the company. In many
ways the company has showed eviier.de of its good Intention towards the city.
President Hays' reputation as a man who carries out his promises ia -e.. kaowi
and his personal popular;-.} among the citizens of Prince Rupert ia quite untouched
by any differences of opinion abou' the assessment.
If th* asswrv-ent made by the official whom Premier McBr.de appointed ia
at fault, the Ot* Oooaal may be relied upon to do ail it can with propriety to
have the company's MMMM readjusted. But the suggestion for near-exeraptior.
for a term of twenty year* is one that should not be entertained. It ia contrary
to the spirit and genius of the charter of incorporation, and fraught with many
darrgers.

Berlin. Nov. 11.���Fashionable persons
have bought at enormous prices all the
accommodations on the North German
Lloyd steamship Prince Louis on which
Crown Prince William will make a
voyage around the world.
All the ship's cabins were sold long
ago to wealthy Berliner*. One nch
man on the fringe of society, who
wished to take passage at Genoa recently, offered $2500 for a second
cabin. These men and their wives
who belong to the bankers' coterie in
society, are determined to gain at any
cost the honor of travelling with the
Crown Prince. The three bankers
have instructed two travel bureaus
here to find persons who have secured
cabins and :>rTer any price to them to
transfer their tickets.
Each of the three deposited $500
with a barking house as a guarantee
that his offer is made in good faith.
Each promises to pay $10,000 if he
secures a first-class cabin. Of course,
each hopes that by travelling with the
Kaiser's first born they at least will
be presented to the Prince.
If the Crown Pnnce goes to America, which is improbable, your correspondent learns, numbers of the
wealthiest Germans will scurry across
the Atlantic to follow him around
there.
"Some of our gentlemen." says an
evening newspaper, "evidently hope
to gather any spare kis3es from American iadies which may fail to rind the
proper target���the Prince's laughing
lips. We hope for these gentlemen's
sake* that the Americans will be ready
with whole batteries of quick-firing
kisses so that the German enthusiasts
may catch a few stray shots at least in
return for their huge expenses."
Many a sinner is adept at  drawing
fashionplates for sair.ta.

o'clock.
In a report of the Finance and Assessment committee presented last night,

Some discussion arose over an item
in the first named committee's accounts
for hardware supplied to the police viz.:
revolvers, batons, etc., nnd Aid. Nuden
was desirous of having such charge in
future made uguinst their own department separated. He suggested that the
full name of the Health committee be
changed to "Health, Relief, and Trades'
License Committee."
Aid. Mobley pointtrtl ou that this
Mmmittee exercised authority over the
Police Commissioners und Aid. Pnttullo
thought that this being the case the
name should not be altered nor the
authority lightly surrendered. The City
Clerk explained the matter of the
entering of the charge for police supplier]
under this committee's accounts and
the Finance committee's report was then
adopted the accounts being passed for
payment.

Chicago, Nov. 11.���Dr. Frederick A.
Cook was further discredited in a special cable dispatch to the Chicago Daily
News today, from its correspondent in
Compenhagen, Denmark.
The story was the first publication
of Knud Rasmussen, the Danish explorer, as sent by him to his wife in
Copenhagen and given out by her.
Contained in the story are purported
statements of Cook's to Eskimo companions in the polar quest, Itukusuk
and Apilak, in which they confirm
Commander Robert E. Peary's charge
that Cook traveled in a circle and
never even approached the poles.
Rasmussen, in the story, is quoted as
saying he himself did not interview the
men, but that their statements were
taken by the Rev. Gustave Olsen and
Kateket Sechmann Rosebach, missionaries.
Doubts Existed
The dispatch to the Daily News says:
"Already in 1909 when I was on an
expedition to Greenland," writes Rasmussen, "there existed grave doubts as
to whether Dr. Cook really had reached
the pole, so I determined to find out
from his two Eskimo companions. I
secured their statements through the
missionaries."
This is the story of the Eskimo as
given in the despatch:
"We traveled from Annatook with
eight sledges in company with Dr.
Cook, at the first sunshine .February!.
From there to Ellsmere we slept only
once on the ice. It took four days to
cross EUesmere land. Eighteen days
out our companions left us. We then
had gone only about twelve English
miles from land.
Ice Wat Fine
"The ice was fine and there was no
reason to stop, for any one who wanted
to go on could do so. The nineteenth
day Dr. Cook took observations with
an instrument he held in his hands and
we then changed our course eastward.
"We left here a lot of food for men
and dogs and one of us (Itukusuk)
went ahead to examine the ice. He
reported   it  in  good   shape,   which   it
! was, but  Dr.  Cook  looked at it and
{said it was bad.
"On the way back we stopped at open
| water near the land.    We stopped one
i day and went over to Ringnas island
i before the snow had melted. (April).
Draws Lake Map
"One day I (Apilak) came upon Dr.
Cook sitting down and drawing a map
, I looked at it and asked him:
" 'Whose route are you drawing?'
" 'My own,' replied Dr. Cook.
"But that was a lie, because he drew
| the map a long way out at sea, where
we had never been.
"We continued tp shoot bears on the
i ice until we had enough for the dogs.
| We do not know how many nights we
! slept on this part of the journey. The
: small rivers had only begun to break
when we reached Hell's Gate.
Left Dog* Behind
"Here, as Dr. Cook directed, we left
our dogs behind us although they were
fat from the bears' meat.   We crossed
I the great sound and had to push our
1 boat along the ice.
"Dr. Cook said:
" 'We will reach human beings (Baffin's Land) within two days.'
"We had J. pt twice when he looked
ahead and said he saw a tent, but it
was only a stone. We kept hunting for
human beings a long time.    Then we
��� came to the island on which eider birds
! were resting. We followed tbe land
past Cape Sparbo, and when our provisions were nearly gone we returned
toward Cape Seddon, where we arranged for wintering.
"It was yet twilight   the whole night
i and we built a house of peat and stone,
just  as  we do at   home.    We caught
' walrus, muskox and bear for the winter.     It   was  a   fine  autumn   and   we
', had   made  provisions   for  the   winter.
During the dark time we were inside
. most of the time making clothes."

When a man is overanxious about
saving his skin, he likes to balance up by
seeming anxious about saving my soul.
Virtue is the joy of the upward way.
Twisted truth usually doubles back on

F. T. CONGDON HONORED
Yukon Member* Speak at Seattle on
International Relations
Seattle, Nov. 10.���F. T. Congdon,
member of the Canadian Parliament
from Yukon territory and former governor of the territory, spoke at a reception tendered himself and Delegate
James Wickersham of Alaksa at the
Arctic Club last night. Mr. Congdon
traced the democracy of the world
from its earliest inception through its
westward march until it found final
expression in the north after gold
strikes in Alaska and the Yukon Territory. He described thc Yukon Territory and spoke at length on the relations between that territory and
Alaska and the relations between Canada and the United States.
We never know the value of our friends
until the only thing they can give us is
their own selves.

CHIPS FROM THE
.HUJWORISTS,
Mrs. Blase���Have you begun your
suit for divorce? Mrs. Highup���No,
but I've begun the suit I'm going to
wear when I get my divorce!
Funny Man���Your chops, Mrs. Hash-
!eigh, are like the spring weather���
rather raw.
Mrs. H. (off the bat)���The weather is
something like your board bill���unsettled.
Stubb���There goes a man who has
more women running after him than any
man in town.
Penn���You don't say! Regular Beau
Brummel, eh?
Stubb���No, motorman on a street
car. He never slows up until he is a
block away from the place where a
woman signals.
"I suppose you always prefer to enlist men who are not married?" I remarked to the sergeant who has charge
of the recruiting station on Cannon
street.
"No, you're mistaken there," he
hastened to reply, "we don't have to go
to the trouble of teaching the married
men to obey."
"Is this a problem play?" asked the
one-night stand critic of the manager.
"It is, replied that worthy. "And
what," asked the ctitic, "is the special
problem presented?" "How to get
enough money into the box office for
railroad fares to our next date," said
the manager, with pointed brevity.
He was poor, but otherwise honest,
and she was an heiress.
He had proposed to her.
She had refused him.
"Why, you foolish boy," she said,
"you couldn't even dress me!"
"Well, what of that?" he queried. I
could learn."
It was shortly after midnight, and
the colonel had caught Rastus red-
handed.
"Well, Rastus, you old rascal, you,"
said he. "I've caught you at last.
What are you doing in my henhouse?"
"Why, Mar.se Bill," said the old man,
"I���I done heard such a cacklin' in dis
yere ooop dat I���I thought mebbe de
ole hen done gone lay ain aig, an' I���I
wanted to get it fo' you' breakfast'
while it was fresh, sun."
The putty man is apt to be proud of
his patience.
Making this world gloomy will not
make it cleaner.
Misery is the mental chaos of the self-
centered mind.
Tears have no real meaning to those
who cannot laugh.
A little every day help is worth a lot of
Sunday holiness.

You can feel it in the air,
You can hear it everywhere,
It is time to do and dare,
If you've got the cash to spare,
There are chances here and there,
In fact almost anywhere,
That's if you really care,
And a little will mak' mair,
While you're sitting in your chair,
For everything looks fair,
In this city rich and rare,
It's not a simple flare,
It's not just a boomster's blare,
So don't stand still and stare,
Lest you later pull your hair,
And very likely swear,
When of trade you miss your
share,
Because your ad. was not
In the paper that's all there,

Criticized Letter Writer
Rev. F. W. Kerr believed Mr. James
had struck the right note. They wanted
people to know what the Canada Temperance Act was. Section 117 was
quoted in a letter in that day's Opitmist.
The writer of the letter should have
known that this section was repealed
on July 20th, 1908, and an additional
clause added which set forth that
liquor might be brought into the district
for personal and family use so long as it
was not bought from a dealer in the
district.

on a lighting proposition.
Aid. Hilditch thought the temporary
plant would be out-worn long before i
even ten years had passed und it was'
absurd to go on paying for a plant for
forty years when it had been done with
in ten. Aid. Mobley pointed out that
the plant would he replaced piece by
piece; but agreed that in len years
Prince Rupert would be considering
a larger scale lighting scheme with a
different power. This was Aid. Lynch's
opinion too.
The By-law provides for the writing
off of five per cent annually for depreciation and allows $38,859 for maintenance and up keep. Aid. Barrow was
inclined to think five per cent ruther
little to allow for depreciation.
The council finally agreed to alter
the forty-year term to fifteen years,
the By-law to take effect from fifteenth
of December.
A recess was called while the calculations of revenue and expenses were
made by the city engineer and Mr.
Clements who recently reported that
the estimated revenue from the light is
$24,160.10 and the annual interest on 1
