DUNCAN ROSS EXPOSES
CLEMENTS AT CUMBERLAND
Proves from Pages of Hansard that the Conservative
Candidate Advocated Reciprocity With United
States���Clements Takes Back Challenge
to Withdraw from Contest
(Special io ilu- Daily Nc,\-)
Victoria, August 30. Duncan
Rois concluded the most successful aeries of political meetings ever held in Alberni and
Comox with a large meeting at
Cumberland last night. The
large hall was packed, the
crowds stretching out into the
streets and listening through
the open doors and windows.
Mr. Clements was present,
nnd was given the same time
ns Mr. Ross. Mr. William Sloan
presided and spoke in support
of Duncan Ross in a forcible
speech. In conclusion he quoted from Hansard a speech
delivered in the House of Commons by Mr. Clements in which
���he latter had advocated a
fair exchange in natural products with the United States.
Clements in reply gave an
indignant denial to the charge
that he had advocated reciprocity. He said that If Mr.
Ross or Mr. Sloan could find
either in Hansard or out of it
any speech by him in which
he had advocated reciprocity
he would withdraw from the
contest.
He made a strong high protectionist speech pleading that
the wall against American goods be made higher and keeping
our national resources for the
people of Canada.
Mr. Ross produced Hansard
and read from its pages that
Clements had made the following statement:
"While I am not a freetrader,
and far from it, I would be
ready to favor reciprocity as
between the United States and
Canada."
Mr. Ross taunted his opponent with this bold declaration in reply to Mr. Sloan, and
asked him if he would withdraw now or take his punishment on election day. He
ridiculed Clement's protectionist theory and again reading
from Hansard what Clements
had said:
"I would make the Canadian
duty on beans 60c. per bushel
and compel British Columbia
to buy our beans."
This is the man," concluded
Mr. Ross, "who now, asks to
represent the miners and other
consumers of Comox-Atlin."
The sentiment of the large
body of miners was overwhelmingly In favor of Ross and
Reciprocity.

"TWO HNS. OVERFLOW ON
WOODWORTH UKE DAM"
Startling Results of "Daily News" Investigation of the
Site of the Proposed $550,000 Hydro-electric Plant
���Will Need All For Drinking Purposes
Willi ihe near approach of the
voting on ihe Hydro-Electric Bylaw comment has been aroused in
the city on the Woodworth Lake
water supply, and its sufficiency
to ilo all thai is expected of it
under the proposed scheme of
combining lhe supply of the city's
drinking water wi.h the supply
of water power produced electrical energy for light ing and power
purposes. "Is then* enough water
to spare for the electrical phi >
after the cily has been served for
domestic purposes and tire protection?" is the question many
citizens are asking.
Fire Protection
Engineer Thompson's report indicates that there is enough, and
City Engineer Davis has endorsed
that rc|n>rt. But Colonel Davis
had allowed in his lirsi report for a
substantial population and excellent fire protection. Under the
altered scheme iicluding the Hydro
Electric plant provision is made
for less drinking water and less
fire protection as indicated l>>
our own Engineer's note on the
fin* protection of residential streets
Not in any overwhelming throng
did the citizens turn out last nighl
to hear the Mayor .ind members
of the city council advocate the
voters' approval of the Hydro-
Electric Bylaw, and G. T. P.
assessment agreement. Alderman
Hilditch deploring his lack of
audience towards the close of the
meeting blamed the weather. As
a matter of fact a plentiful sprinkling of the audience had departed
by that time. Defence of the
hydro-electric scheme, the announcement that the work is to be done
if thc bylaw passes, by station
gangs and days labor, and recommendation of the assessment agreement formed the burden of the
platform song. The mistake of
having looo many speakers at the
fag end of the meeting brought
it ti) a straggling and unconvincing
conclusion.
Liked Seattle Man
Without doubt the strongest
speech of the evening was that
of Superintendent Ross of tin-
Seattle City Electric Light and
Power Plant. He spoke in quiet
even tones wiih never an attempt
at oratory, but every word he
said carried weight. "We keep
track of Prince Rupert down in
Seattle," he said and told how-
he had first seen the townsite
thirteen years ago from a Haida
canoe before Rupert was dreamt
of. He was then on his way to
Port Simpson after a trip through
the rich interior country. "While
I am loyal io Seattle," lie said.
"I feel lhat this town is going to
be one of ihe principal cities, and
one of the best on this coast."
He stood strong for municipal
ownership and gave Seattle statistics in support. His was the
best recommendation of ihe council's idea for the Shawatlans power
plant expressed lest right, but in
his parting word he gave a broad
hint to the citizens which those
present both saw and appreciated.
Beware of Politicians
Upon the character of the men
in control of ai y nuirii ipal manage
ment depends ihe success of municipal ownership declared Mr. Ross.
"The one thing which utterly
spoils the whole idea of municipal
ownership of any utility is politics." Without a straight, efficient, practical men running the
dty affairs free from political
bias and prejudice ii was evident
Mr. Ross had little hope for the
success of ;i niiii'icipal power plant.
Watered  the Wine
The gootl wine of this straightforward speech w.is sadly watered
afterwards by the remaining speakers. Alderman Smith evidently
appreciated lhe fact lhal in spile
of Superintendent' Ross's heavy
blow i.1 politics in municipal affairs, the psychological moment
for lhe conclusion of the meeting
was ill lhe end of Mr. Ross's
speech.    Persuaded by the Mayor
he remained on the platform and
s|ioke in favor of the bylaws.
He was roughly interrupted by
labor men taunting him on Foley-
Welch & Stewart's station work
syslem and lhe system as applied
to the waterworks.
Alderman Hilditch had his innings, and regretted his small
audience. His statement that the
council existed to protect the
citizens' interests was hailed with
Ironical applause. Alderman Newion had a lot io say aliout the
l*oor working man whom he had
nobly deft tided, and was greetitl
with derisive whimpering com-
iini .s from the labor men who
cried "Oh, you kind, kind man!"
Alderman Newton could not give
ii direct answer to the direct
question of a labor man "Did not
the members of this council pledge
iheinselves on election, not to
give out any more contracts?'.
He said station work was not like
oilier contract.
Douglas' Challenge
"There is an impression in lhe
city thai a huge voting machine
is to be formed on ihe waterworks
scheme by the days labor system,"
said Alderman Douglas. "Thiit
cannot happen while I am on the
council for as soon iis I saw such
ii thing I would raise such a roar
about ii that I would shake
Prince Ruperl from centre to cir-
in his comment on Ei gineerThcmp
son's report. Therefore citizens
ask "Is there enough water for
household use, for lire protection
and for generating electric power?"
In order io see for themselves
just how much wiiter was running
to waste from Woodworth Lake
i'fter the recent dry spell a couple
of citizens visited the lake yes-
tcrday afternoon, and tlu- "Daily
N'tws" accompanied them. In
plain words ihis is what ihey found.
Only two ii cites of water is Sowing
over the spillway i't the temporary
dam below ihe lake, and for the
month of August until yesterday
only forty-four hundredths of an
inch of rainfall had been registered
at  the lake.    Today's rain  will
have improved ihis, but the impression certainly is that we have
little water to spare for purposes
other than tire protection and
domestic from Woodworth Lake.
If Prince Rupert's population increase beats i'll Pacific ("oast records, as wc arc confident it wi'l,
thin the Shawatlans Like power
plant will be only a temporary
affair i'fter i'll.   Is it worth starting?

AN OUTRAGE AGAINST GOOD CITIZENSHIP
th
Two important Inlaws are to be submitted to a vote on Saturday,
One is in bind the city to a ten years' assessemnt agreement with
Grand Trunk Pacific.
The object <>f the other is to place in the hands of the present
city council a sum of S">")0,000 of public money for the vague purpose
of building a hydro-eleciric system by dribs and drabs and petty
disbursements.
The city council have SO arranged ilu* conditions of the vote as
to disfranchise a large number of property owners.
They have so arranged it that a large number of lawful
and registered property owners will be refused votes, while
a number of persons who do not own a cent's worth of property
in the city will be given votes.
This outrage against the cilizens. repellant alike to justice and
the inti-nt of the law, is being secured by keeping tin- Court of Revision
open until after Saturday's vote is taken.
Why I Will Vote Against G.T.P* Assessment
Bylaw
^
One of the objects of a Court of Revision is to ensure that lawful
property owners only secure the right to vote. Clause 7(> of ihe Municipal Clauses Act provides (or the assessment roll to be revised up to
within live days of a vote on a money bylaw, so iis to ensure that
only lawful owners of real estate will be entitled to vole.
On June "nil a Court of Revision was opened in Prince Ru|K-rt to
revise ihe assessment roll. Those revisions have .ill been entered.
But instead of closing ihe Court when their labors ended, the Court
of Revision, composed of the Minor, Alderman Hilditch, Alderman
Clayton, Alderman Smiih and Alderman Kirkpatrick, adjourned until
September 5th.
Thin lhe city council fixed September 2nd as the day for taking
the vole. As a consequence of keeping the Court of Revision open
until after the vote is taken, every citizen of Prince Rupert who
has purchased property since December 1910 is disfranchised,
and all those persons who have sold their property since December 1910, though they have not a cent of interest in the
city are to be given votes instead.
Upon thi* false and Iniquitous vote the city council hopes to
pass lhe ('.. T. P. agreement and secure 1580,000 to S|vend in entrenching
themselves in power. By this false and Iniquitous vote they hope
to force upon the disfranchised property owners, money bylaws which
the disfranchised ones will be called upon to pay.
In the case of a piece of property purchased in January 1011 by
one citizen, where the transfer was duly registered, and where the
lawful owner's name iip|K-ars mi the City Hall register and on ilu- new
assessment records .is ihe owner, the vole for il is given to a ni-tii
who is mu a citizen of Prince Rupert, is nol a British subject, and
who has not owned any property in ihe city since September 11)10.
There are hundreds of propert) owners in Prince Rupen iu the same
plight, most of whom will not discover the trick played ii|Min them
until they ask for iheir votes on Saturday.
Tin* action <>f the council in disfranchising hundreds of property
owners, and awarding their votes lo people who have no property
Interest in the city makes ii imperative that both bylaws Ik* voted
down on Saturday by every Ixma-fidc property owner in the city
whom il has been impossible to deprive of their votes.
li will be iu the interests of economy as well iis of fair play, for
all decent citizens to unite to stamp out ihis attempt to establish
ring-rule by means of a mai-ipul.iled voters' list.
"Being ii property holder in
Prince Rupert anil representing
outside capital invested here, I
have both ;i direct ami an indirect
interest in tin- Ci. T. P. assessment
agreement, and believe lhat a
few words of comment upon the
same would be timely.
"Clause 1.���Objection may be
taken to Clause 1, upon the ground
thai some of ihe property set
out is property which according
to the sale maps appear to be
vacant spaces, ami upon that
understanding, people purchased
adjoining lots anil gave com-pe
tition pricts therefor. Now the
Development Company intends to
convey the land to the cily in fee.
This is in effect  selling this land
twice, ami if the legal aspect of
the mailer were gone into, 1 should
ihink it most likely thai the
company could be restrained from
such an action. Ip any event, the
Development Company should
know thai certain of these vacant
lieces of land adjoining propert)
which has been sold haa been paid
for by the people. If these vacant
places are to be alienated to the
dty, which I think quite proper,
it should be for park purposes only.
Clause 4a.���"Why should the
city not have the privilege of
issigning or subletting ihis property for limited periods for athletic
purposes and other kindred recreations without being under the
necessity of referring to the Development Company and to the
Province for their consent. Surely
the city is a responsible trustee
for the public and sufficiently
rational to be entrusted with the
management of this land within
the sphere of park and public
purposes.
"Clause 4c.���Here again the
restriction appears to be too great.
If the city wished to start a wild
animal garden and io fence off
portions of land for that purpose,
and in build animal sheds and
pens, consent would have to be
..1.1.lined.    Is not ihis an awkward
ami unnecessary provision? Further, there is no provision to the
effect thiit such consent shall not
be arbitrarily withheld. No more
petty hold-up tactics have everi
been practised than when ilu*
President of the Grand Trunk
Pacific Railway Company wired
(as I am informed) to the hist
council to the effect thai unless
the council desisited from attempting to float debentures in
London, England, that he would
see to it thai the dieagrcement in;
regard to the assessment between
the railway company and ilu- dty
i minimum cost be inserted?    I
lave no recollection of ever reading
i more indefinite and futile agrce-
iVrnent, and  I  have no faith that

was well advertised in London
financial papers. Companies do
not fail to take advantage "I
every opportunity, the letter ol
ihe law and technical limitations
included, when their ends are
served thereby, and there is im
reason why the citizens of Prince
Rupert should think th.u the
Grand Trunk Pacific Railway Company is an exception.
Clause 5 .���"Why should a
cemetery site, of all places, not
be granted in fee simple for
cemetery purposes?
"Clause 7.���This clause means
nothing. The railway company
is not bound to do anything by
ihis section at all. It is a well
known aspect of hum.in nature
that engineers do as tluir masters
tell them, and if the railway
company does not wish io grant
any easement at all, all ii has to
tlo is to' instruct iis engineers
accordingly and there is an end
to the matter. The powers of
expropriation are statutory and
unaffected by this section, which
is merely an imaginable gratuity,
so much tinsel held up by the
railway company to ilu- electors
of Prince Rupert.
Clause 8.���"This clause means
nothing. The most self evident
of all axioms is that the completion of a task mav be further
removed in point of time from its
commencement than ihe end of
eternity. The railway company
hits to commence these works and
it may be any one of them (for
there is nothing requiring the
railway company to work iit the
various buildings concurrently)
within three months, and end them
when it likes or never. 'Willi all
reasonable dispatch' is beautifully
indefinite and depends for its
meaning upon the point of view
taken; for lhc company it will
mean when needed, for would
it not be unreasonable for the
company to expend money on
buildings for which it would have
no use, thereby being out the
interest on ihe money, also the
expense of upkeep and loss by
deterioration. 'Truly it would be
unreasonable for the company to
be  guilty  of  any  such   thriftless
improvidence. Further, if the company is prepared to commence
these buildings, etc., within three
months, where iire the plans, specifications,   etc.,   and   whv   cannot

lis solicitude for Prince Rupert
;is distinguished from its own advantage will be nil. Self interest
is the creed of corporations and
they have neither soul or honor
for the citizens of Prince Rupert
to bank on.
Clause 9.���"The same criticism
applies to this section only the
railway company reveals a little
more of its plans. Everyone expects the railway through in about
two years, hence it will be necessary
to have this hotel to take care
of the traffic. If it were not so,
the railway company would never
build it. The City of Prince
Rupert is just as sure of an holil
if no such clause were inserted.
'The railway company does not
state a minimum cost or give any
mher information about it. This
clause is merely so much word
padding to make the citizens feel
liss keenly the fall from an annual
taxation of about 8100,000 lo
��15,000.
Clause 10.���"Why this section
is inserted here, I know not, oilier
than as an item of news. The
agreement between lhe Dominion
Government and the railway company stands upon its own foundation and will have to be carried
out by the railway company regardless of this agreement, hence
Inasmuch as ihe railway company
is bound to build this dry dock
anyway, there is no consideration
for a reduction in taxation and this
section has no right to be here
at all.
"Clause 11.���If sections 7, 8,
9 and 10 are worthless, this clause,
I believe, is dangerous. The railway company is to pay 115,000
per annum 'in respect of all iis
property, real or personal, within
lhe city limits.' What property
docs this include? Probably both
the railway company and the city
council would say the present
land held by the railway company
and the buildings hereafter to be
erected thereon. That may be
what lhe city council meant, but
I do not ihink that is the reading
of the section. What is to prevent
the Development Company from
transferring all its property to

WOMEN IN THE HAREM
Realities of the Lives of Turkish
Wives
PRESBYTERIANS
AND THE CHURCH
New Building to be Constructed
With the Help of the Congregation. Rev. Mr. Melvin's
Thanks and a Little Hint.
This evening the young men
of the First Presbyterian Church
arc asked by thc pastor to lend a
helping hand in thc erection of the
new church on thc permanent site.
Thc same host of stalwarts who
helped tear down the old edifice
on the reserve site will be in
attendance to build thc new one.
Beside the assistance of thc young
men in the work, the building is in
the hands of a contractor who will
guide the helpers to the best
advantage.
In requesting the young men of
thc congregation to lend their
aid at his evening service on
Sunday Rev. Mr. Melvin took
occasion to thank the congregation
for the great kindness shown him
and his young bride during their
stay in Prince Rupert in thc
absence of the regular pastor Rev.
F. W. Kerr. Rev. Mr. Melvin
offered to his hearers one hint, viz.,
that they should try to attend in
greater numbers at the morning
services. "You have a pastor,"
he said "who is worthy of all the
appreciation a congregation can
show him by large loyal attendances at his services, especially
lhc morning service. It is encourag
ing to the pastor to see well filled
benches at all his services."
Moroccan Situation  May Get
Strained Again
Madrid, Aug. 29.���Despatches
from Las Palmas today state that
five hundred Spanish soldiers have
sailed from there for the South of
Agadir where they will land and
establish a station. This move
will further complicate the Moroccan situation which is still delicate.
The happiness or unhappiness
of the immured woman, whether
she be in ft convent or ;- harem
continues to be a much debated
question and a distinguished Turk,
Menur Pasha, wrote ft pr.per for
a French journal, wherein he g.-.vo
a glowirg description of tht* unalloyed bliss of the Turkish women
of today. Hc has been thus
answered by an educated Turkish
woman:
For an intelligent woman, the
life in thc harem is one of long
gray hours full of discouragement
and weariness. It is true we mi.y
read. That is still our principal
distraction; but to whom may we
speak of our readii-gs, wiih whom
may we exchange a few serious
thoughts? The society of men is
forbidden to us and we ;-re surrounded by women relatives ard
friends, who are generally lacking
in education, because under the
old order of things it was not
allowed to send Mohammedan girls
to European schools. Our husbands are immensely surprised if
we wish to speak with them about
some subject outside the habitual
circle of so-called feminine conversation. They are often glad
to leave these harems ol ours,
crowdetl with children, slaves and
gossipcrs.
They go out to their business or
their pleasure, lo dinners, to balls
or to fetes, which are given by
Europeans of whom wc know
nothing but their names, and of
whose elegant receptions, at which
wc arc m-ver allowed to assisi
we read with sighs. Nevertheless
we shall not ask to join in those
pleasures,   because  wc  arc   good
Mohammedans, much attached to
our religion, and we know that it
is not possible to change so brusquely from customs based on
religion and sustained by the
fanatisism of thc priests and common people. But I dare to say
that these customs make us slaves
just as much as any described
iu the sacred books. Thai which
condemns us to the obscurity of
the veil has an origin which is
worthy of being told.
NOTES OF VALUE
Not Dollar Bills but will Save
Them
Ether will remove perspiration
stains, but should lie mixed with
ammonia and water. One-fourth
ether, one-fourth ammonia and
one-half water is a good mixture
Rinse and place in the sun.
Old coffee grounds, if thoroughly
dried, muke the best filling for
pincushions; they are better than
bran; which attracts mice; or
hair, which attracts moths; lie-
sides, they don't sift out as sand
docs.
Almost anything that has come
in contact with sticky fly-paper
can be thoroughly cleansed by
sponging with kerosene. Thc otlor
will soon evaporate if thc article
is exposed to the air for a short
lime.
CHIFFON AND LINGERIE
The Use of Black in These Fashions
Black chiffon and lingerie materials are already too familiar
a combination to be surprising and
some of the most exclusive houses
are obtaining very attractive results by the association of these
two materials. Bold broderic Anglicise shows up well under sheer
chiffon veiling, and if not used
under the chiffon forms effective
trimming. A pretty example of
this type of dress has a tunic of
black chiffon extending into a full
length robe by a deep foolband
of broderie Anglaise which ruins
up Into the chiffon skirt in deep
points. Yoke and sleeve finish
are of the broderie Anglaise and
the white is made up over a foundation of white satin.
PRETTY TUB FROCK
Creation  in  Buff  Linen  With
Embroidery
One of thc pretiiest little tub
frocks seen has iis body of buff
linen embroidered all over in open
work design. A deep band of
plain buff linen formed the lower
half of the skirt and narrow bands
ran up from it to the shoulders
on each side of lhe front and back.
The short sleeves were chiefly
of plain sheer linen with embroidery running out over them 8
little from the shoulders and with
cuffs of the embroidery. A narrow
girdle antl prim bow of black
velvet  defined the high waistline.
Lemon Ice
To one quart of water add the
juice of four lemons and one
���xmrd of sugar, strain .nnd add Unbeaten whites of two eggs then
freeze.
EXPLOITING OF
BODY AND SOUL
Rev. Mr. Melvin Preaches Against the Evil of Modern Employers Who Would Take a
Man's Whole Life and Pay
Him a Bare Living.
Turn the gloves wrong side out,
press the rent together and coat
the edges with automobile gum.
Cover with a piece of adhesive
plaster. When dry the gloves
may be turned and will be found
as good as new.
Spanish Cream
Make a soft custard of one quart
of milk, yolks of six eggs and six
tablespoons of sugar. Dissolve
one box of gelatine in one cup of
water and heal. Add the custard
and flavor with vanilla. Strain
into moulds and set on ice to cool.
The long seamless shoulder remains in excellent vogue.
"I do not thank a man for the
respect he pays me as a minister,"
declared Rev. Mr. Melvin in his
sermon on Sunday night. "If he
cannot respect me as a man
apart from my cloth, I have no use
for his respect addressed only to
lhat."
Rev. Mr. Melvin's sermon was
on "The Worth of a Man," and in
the course of il he expressed the
decided conviction that one of the
crying evils of the time is the exploitation of men by their employers. "An employer," the pastor declared with the ring of
resentment in his voice,"will take
a man's time, his liberty, his
energy, his skill, and leaving him
scarcely spare time enough to
recuperate himself for another day's
work will pay him for his labor
only enough lo keep boby and
soul together in such comforl
as will ensure physical efficiency.
And there are employers who will
even attempt to buy for their own
base uses the man's very con*
science and his soul."
Rev. Mr. Melvin is one of the
young preachers of the Presbyterian church whose work has been
toilsome but telling to a marked
degree amongst the lumber antl
mining camps of the province.
Hc will be heard of later and
louder, for he is a great worker,
and a fearless preacher. Willi
lhe inspiration now of a winsome
wife, his power for good will be
doubled. Probably in no work in
the World is a wife more helpful
lo a  man  than  in  the  ministry.
Prince Ruperi Presbyterians have
been pleased lo have Rev. Mr.
Melvin with them during thc
absence of their tegular pastor,
Rev. F. W. Kerr.

WHY I WILL VOTE AGAINST THE BY-LAW
(Continued From Page 2)
to nn- that the city could only
collect 116,000 per annum as general taxes, and if the property
holders ..f Prince Rupert do nol
waken up t>> the nature of this
agreement, 1 fear we are on the
verge of the biggest blunder thai
has yet been made in our history.
If my Interpretation of the section
is correct, vm* stand in Imminenl
danger, and I ask each and all
in look iiiin the matter carefully
and ili-fcat this bylaw.
"li may well be asked why the
people Bhould consider seriously
any such adjustment of tht G. T.
P, assessment.   Many people ap-
that we have consented lo bear
the burdens of the (".rand Trunk
Pacific Railway Company.  Under
the very worst conditions imaginable, the Grand Trunk Pacific
Railway Company could not reduce iis annual taxation io any*
thing like $15,000 per annum,
and the outside money lender
could quite easily be convinced of
ihis, hence how can such an
adjustment add to our security.
"The word padding in sections
7, S, 0 and 10 means nothing for
these are merely ancillary to transportation antl traffic and are governed by laws of economic necessity

-THEY WILL REPAY A CAREFUL LOOKING OVER-
pear to think that an adjustment more Immutable and Irresistible
if ihis matter will sutlt our that this agreemeni. The future
ni"i;ry market so to speak, make I of Prince  Rupert  is assured and
our securities unquestionable, and
cause a rise in real estate. Bj
what manner of logic they arrive
at this conclusion, I know not.
How can a higher rate of taxes
upon the land held by private
owners in I'rince Rupert increase
the   value  of   real  estate?     How
can a decreased assessment add
to our security? Truly a uig-of-
vv.ir condition between lhe city
and the railway company is iu>i to
be desired, but ihis may be better
than the condition which will
probably ensue when we and the
world   at   large   come   lo   realize
there is no accelerating its progress
by trash agreements or retarding
its development by a railway company petulant over a few thousand
dollars of taxation. The great
danger is lest its progress be
stayed by a foolish shifting and
irrational apportioning of the burden of taxation from the shoulders
of the giant to those of the pigmy
holder. Treat the railway company
fairly, but surely this sacrifice on
behalf of the people is too generous
ami the efficacy of the agreement
loo uncertain."

Mayor and The News
Thc Mayor gave a lengthy exposition of both bylaws in his
speech at ilu* start of ihe meeting.
Referring to The News editorial
pointing out lhal two bylaws

people as out. the Mayor declared
thai the dty solicitor had advised
them  that all was in order wiih
ihe hydro-electric and water supply
system's being combined in one
bylaw and thai ilu- responsibility
rested wiih ilu- city solicitor.
Mr. Brutinel Replies
Mr. R. Brutinel on the invitation
of ihe Mayor replied io ilu- state*
iii.Ti made that his company was
behind   the   agitation   to   knock
(he IIhdryo-Electric Bylaw.   "Our
company is tuu  behind that agi-
i.tiiot'."  he declared.    "You  can
take my word  for it.     I   am  a
gentleman.   Mr. Manson himself
has vouched for ii."    Which was
iu fad  the ease as Mr.  Manson
had referred io ilu- gentlemanly
dealings of Mr. Brutinel wiih the
council throughout all discussions
on the business.
Quoted the Mayor
In further reply to cridcism of
his company's proposal's Mr. Brutinel quoted the Mayor who ai
the outset of the meeting had said
"When we gei in-,., technicalities
over these electrical matters we
a.re all al sea, and I am not going
to try io explain them to you."
"Mr. Manson has said thai he is
not a technical man," remarked
Mr. Brutinel. "How then can he
advise you on the merits of electrical mailers?"
R. King the labor spokesman iu
a perfervid speech declared thai
the laborers on the waterworks
should have the right lo say (1)
how much the work should cost
(2) how much their wages should
be (8) how long and how hard ihey
mild work.   Laughter and cheers
greeted Mr. King's statements,

THE MACK REALTY & INSURANCE COMPANY
SELLING AGENTS
***^************^^^
Dear Sir,���Ii seems to ine thai
ilu- majority of the rate-payers of
I'rince Rupert are asleep at iheir
post, as regards the Municipal
Bylaw dealing wiih lhe experdi-
tiire of 1550,000 on the Hydro-
Electric and waterworks project.
Grained that the city council
had given the rate-payers enough
time to thoroughly discuss the
matter, perhaps fearing that discussion meant disclosures, or thai
if delayed a few weeks our usual
season of wet weather would be
upon us ami the people might then
be more reluctant in voting over
a half million dollars into ihe hand
of two or three individuals to
spend as ihey saw lit in securing
a permanent supply of water and
power for Prince Rupen; especially as cosily mistakes are very
likely   io  happen,  as  a   result  of
numerous causes, and in such
.���vent, the individuals spending
the money, having nothing
stake, lose nothing, thiol' Increased cost falling
rate-payers.
Have ihe present council, in
the majority, shown themselves
capable and competent of having
such responsibility thrust upon
them, as the passage of ihis Bylaw
means? Have they -hown themselves to be economical in the expenditure of the rate-payers'money
in the construction of retaining
walls, building of pole lines, construction of sewers and man-holes?
Xo one has yet been able to
ascertain  definitely  the cos;   of
any of lhe above work, but ask
the opinion of any disinterested
party who lias watched .he progress
of thc work and iheir answer will
invariably be, the cost must be
enormous.    Is   that   the  reason
lhe  Board  of   Public  Works aid
ilu* Engineering Department p.re
dodging these questions of cost?
Perhaps   Providence  not   only
sent ihis rain to relieve our present
needs, but as a good omen that
all tax payers should heed, and
before consenting to thc expenditure of ,his large amount, assert
.heir righis and demand that the
most economical methods be used
in carrying on the work, ard re-
quirt those .loin*,' the Work to
furnish sufficient bond to guarantee
iis completion at no additional
cost to thc city.    How arc the
rate-payers   lo    know,    but    (hat
with  1550,000 they will only get
1100,000 worth of work done?
I overheard three laboring men
who an- employed by the Board
of Public Works Department discussing tho si Ilia I ion. One of
them remarked, that this was the
easiesi job lie had ever had, lhal
one   had   io   work, much   harder
with contractors than they did
row working for the city, and lhal
ihey must volt* for these same men
the next time, for that reason.
How   does   thai   sound   lo   you
rale-payers here who are anxious
to   avoid   building   up   a   strong
political machine in Prince Ruperl ?
Even though promises are made,
should strongly object  to this
money being spent 1,y the present
men  in  power.
