THE LIQUOR BYLAW
New Regulations are Embodied in the
Amended Meas
ure.
Objection  Raised to Sections Which
It   Is   Feared    Clash
With Act.
There was exultation in the ranks
■of the dominant section of the City
Council on Tuesday evening as they
pushed the different sections of the
new liquor bylaw through. As the
portions objected to by Aid. Smith.
and Aid. Hildltch, on the ground
that they were beyond the powers of
the council to pass were protested
against by these members of the
council, a chorus from the other section of the council sounded forth
from time to time all in unison, the
burden of the refrain being arbitrary
power of license commissioners,
down with Victoria Vancouver has
proved its power, this wilrl soon be
tested in fhe courts. To the accompanying marry maidenlike ripple of
laughter from Aid. Naden and Aid.
Pattullo, the chorus proceeded.
The bylaw had been objected to
ln some details at the previous sitting ot the council and when It
came up for consideration on Tuesday evening Aid. Moblyey said he
would like to see the bylaw pass
through its third reading at the sitting. He did not care when its reconsideration was given it—before
or after the third reading.
Aid. Mobley moved the third reading of the liquor bylaw, seconded by
Aid. Naden.
Bylaw Re-Committed
Aid. Lynch moved in amendment
that the bylaw be re-committed.
After some discussion the amendment carried ad the bylaw was recommitted with Aid. Naden in the
chair.
, Aid. Mclntyre referred to the sec-
ilc.n which forbids an intoxicated jier-
son from being allowed to enter a
bar. He said that this would require each hotel to have a doorkeeper.
Aid. Mobley thought it was unnecessary. It was not to be supposed
tliut hotel men wished to harbor
drunken people.
Ills Worship thought these people
were better In the bars than on the
streets.
It. was finally, on motion of Aid.
Pattullo deckled to amend the bylaw
io that no license should allow an
ntoxlcated person to leave the prem-
ses except under the charge of a
lerson not under the influence of
iqiior.
Liquor at Meals
Aid. Harrow wanted to amend the
lylaw so that a person spending 50
ents on a meal should be allowed to
■e served with liquor.
It was pointed out that there were
o restaurant licenses and this was
llowetl to drop.
The solicitor explained that clause
and 7a had been embodied tn
lause 37.
Aid. SmfYh wished to know if the
ylaw should not come before them
3 it left the committee and not
Itered.
It was explained that in reality
tere was no change. The sections
ad been consolidated simply.
The section dealt, with the cancelation of licenses which could only be
Me by the license commissioners
>r violation of the law or in case of
iductlon in the number of licenses
i a  result of the showing of  the
ipulation.
Question of Power
Aid.  Hilditch wanted  to know if
e council had authority    to    pass
is.
W. E. Williams, the city solicitor,
id that they had.
Aid.   Hilditch   asked   the   section
d the reply was given that It was
ider section 205 of the municipal
tuses act.
Aid. Hilditch referred to sections
3 and 204 of the municipal clauses
t, and contended that according to
sse the commissioners had powers
it they were taking away by this
law.
The city solicitor held this power
s given     to    enquire    into    nay
"lrgcs against a licensee.
Aid. Hildltch contended that    his
plied to the renewal of licenses.
Vested  Rights
Aid.   Pattullo  felt  that  licensees
mediately the licenses were grant
ed had a vested right created and
should not be rendered liable to losing those licenses.
- Aid. Smith said he protested
against this clause as he felt that it
ran contrary to the municipal clauses
act.
Aid. Pattullo felt that it should be
passed. The city solicitor gave as
his opinion that the section was within their power to pass. He wanted
■the authority of Aid. Smith that It
was contrary to the act.
Aid. Smith said he understood that
the city solicitor only stated that In
his opinion  the section  was within
the power of ithe council to pass.
Solicitor's Opinion
The solicitor explained that until a
question had gone to the privy council, no counsel could say positively
what the final decision would be and
a counsel could only speak to the
best of his understanding.
Some further discussion followed,
Aid. Pattullo and others saying that
it was right that the section should
be In force.
Aid. Smith said this might be but
it was not on that point he was opposing it. He opposed it because he
was satisfied it was useless as the
council by so enacting, purported to
take powers it did not have.
Aid. Pattullo and others support-

LUMBER  BIDS  IN
Only Two Firms Tender on the Supply
Needed for the
Streets.
Georgetown Sawmill Ask to Re Allowed   to  Give  Prices  on
Small Quantities.
Tenders for two million feet of
lumber for the city were received
by the city council last evening. Before proceeding to open these a letter was read from the Georgetown
Sawmill company. That firm WTote
that they oould not tender for two
million feet in competition with the
larger mills in the south, but were
prepared to tender for smaller quantities that might be required from
time to time.
The tenders received were as follows—
J. T. Todd—fir decking, $20 a
thousand.
Swanson Bay company (J. T.
Todd), dimension spruce, $18 a
thousand;  spruce decking, $1S.
Westholme Lumber Co.—dimension spruce, $15.25 a thousand;
spruce decking. $15.25; fir decking,
$,19 a thousand.
The lenders and the letter of the
Georgetown   Sawmill  company were
referred to the streets committee.

GRANT TO HOSPITAL
City  Council   Sets  Aaide the Sum of
$1,000 for the Institution
This Year.
Question of Additional Grants Next
Year to lie Fully Gone
Into.
The City Council has decided to
make a grant this year of $1,000 to
the city hospital. This action was
taken on Tuesday evening on the report of the finance committee.
In presenting the report Aid. Pattullo said that the Board had asked
for $2,500. In view of the fact that
the flnancels of the city were not
such as to warrant a larger expenditure than necessary the Finance
Committee of the Council felt It
could not advance more than $1,000.
It was felt, In fact, that the whole
question of control should be gone
into before a larger note was made.
The report was adopted.
Charles Cullin left for the south
last evening. He will spend the winter In Victoria.
* *     *
Mr. Bondeaux and Mrs. Bondeaux
left last evening for California,
where they will spend the winter.
* *    *
After making an inspection of the
line as far as Hazelton, B. B. Kelliher, chief engineer of the G. T. P.,
returned to the city this week and
left laBt night for Vancouver on his
wny east. He will report upon conditions to his principals.
CAMPAIGN OPENED
Interesting Discussion of Questions of
the Day at Ward
Rally,
Ald;   Pattullo   Holds   First   Public
Meeting in Skating
Rink.
What might be termed the first
meeting of the municipal campaign
was held on Wednesday evening ln
the Skating Rink, being called by
Aid. Pattullo who is again a candidate for alderman in Ward No. 2.
There was a very fair attendance in
spite of the disagreeable weather and
quite a few speakers were afforded
an opportunity to make known their
views. In opening the meeting Aid.
Pattullo took occasion to magnify
upon bis magnanimity in connection
with his invitation to other candidates to speak. He said he would
explain why he had not invited candidates opposed to him to take part
in the meeting.
He had the honor of calling the
first, meeting of the campaign. He
had on the last occasion on which
there was a contest invited Mr. Man-
son to appear. He had given Mr.
Manson all the time he desired.
When Mr. Manson later held a meeting he had not nivited him (Aid. Pattullo) to speak.
He then invlthed all the candidates and Mayor Stork to come forward and take places on the platform.
Aid. Pattullo
Aid. Pattullo said he appealed to
the electorate on the record of the
year. The work done could be ascertained by looking about the city.
Aid. Hilditch had objected to too
much work being done in section 1
rather than in the residential section. He felt that this was done by
Aid. Hilditch particularly for the
purpose of gaining a political advantage.
The first business was to build
up a business section. Having decided to do what toad been done for
the business section, all that could be
done was to give plank roads to the
outlying section. It was Impracticable to grade South Avenue. It would
be impossible to get the finances.
Had the money that was provided for
in Section 1 been proposed for outlying sections, the Bank of Montreal
would not .have come through with
the funds it did.
Day Labor Questions
In the matter 'of day labor, the
council had given a good deal of
thought. He had an open mind on
that subject. Where he believed it
would be an advantage he would favor day labor. During the pasl year
he advocated contract work because
the engineering staff was not organized. He did not pose as the particular friend of the labor men. He
himself was a middleman. It was
the duty of this class to see that
neither the labor man nor the capitalist encroach upon the other.
The man who was responsible for
the G. T. P. assessment difficulty
was not the man to settle it. What
he meant was that Mr. Cuthbert, the
man who made the assessment was
the nominee of Mr. Manson. He referred to the high assessment on the
waterfront and the low assessment
in other sections. Mr. Cuthbert was
appointed by the McBride Government on the recommendation of Mr.
Manson. Mr. Manson was the man
responsible for the G. T. P. assessment. Last year the G. T. P. company and the McBride Government
took a part In the election. Tiny
were taking a part again. The G. T.
P. assessment matter was not yet
settled and he warned the people
against electing Mr. Manson for fear
the G. T. P. would get all it wanted.
Do you want n wobbly-wobbly man
like Mr. Manson., or a man like
Frank Mobley? asked Aid. Pattullo,
indicating the character of his campaign.
Liquor Proposition
He was of the opinion that this
club which was waved over the heads
of the liquor men should cease. That
was why he supported the clause in
the liquor ylaw which took the
power away from I lie commissioners
to cut off the heads of license holders. No one In the building felt that
the heads of the hotel men should be
cut off except for misdemeanors. Yet
Aid. Smith and Aid. Hildltch were
opposed to this.
He believed in continuity of policy
and felt tihat Frank Mobley and himself were the men best posted upon
affairs of the city.
Aid. Mobley
Aid. Mobley in introducing himself spoke in the highest terms of
Aid. Pattullo. He had the courage
of his convictions. He was not a
stubborn man. He had worked hard.
His work on the finance committee
was a great work. There had been a
concerted movement he felt to press
this city to the wall by the powers
that be outside the city. The city
was not stuck and the city had to
thank Aid. Pattullo for it. Had the
debentures of the city been put on
the market they would have been
kuocked in London, In Montreal and
in Vancouver. He had no quarrel
with Mr. Manson nor with the McBride Government. It owas a good
government and had done good work.
That government should keep out of
municipal affairs. He did not say
that the government had attempted
to interfere. He would, however,
see that it did not do so.
Mr. Manson might fill the position he had well. He did not believe that Mr. Manson was able to fill
the two positions. Mr. Manson was
a good politician, but he (Aid. Mobley) could run the cit ybetter than
Mr. Manson could.

SEWERS ARE COSTLY
Proposition  for  the First Section of
Work Would Cost Nearly
$200,000.
It Is Provided That These Local Improvement  Debentures  Shall
Extend Over 40 Veins.
The sewering of the city, judging
from the first proposition brought
before the council last evening, will
be a very costly undertaking. Aid.
Lynch, the father of the sewer plan
Introduced, was somewhat dismayed
himself at the proposed cost and the
engineer's figures were referred back
to the streets committee.
It was explained that the main
trunk sewers are to be paid for out
of general levy. The lateral systems
will be paid for under the local improvement plan. The first local improvement district proposed to be
done is that basin from the use of
ground, between Lynch's store and
Eighth street extending to the high
ground about Fulton street and running back to the ridge along the line
of Fourth street.
The cost as submitted by the engineer for this district was put at
$191,000. It is proposed that the
debentures shall extend over 40
years and that the city shall bear the
cost of the work for street intersections.
Aid. Lynch while expecting the
cost to be high, was'a little in doubt
about thmis,point and proposed that
it should be referred to the streets
committee.
The motion carried.
PLANS  NOT  FILED
Letter Received by Council  Relative
to the G. T. P. Right of Way.
The city council last evening received a letter from the department
of Railways and Canals with respect
to the resolution protesting against
the closing of the bays along the
waterfront.
The letter states that plans were
filed by the company, but were later
withdrawn before being approved of.
Nothing had, therefore, been done in
the matter.
Aid. Mobley said the inference
from this letter would indicate that
the matter was still open and open
to an amicable settlement.
Aid. Pattullo suggested that the
department be asked not to approve
of any plans until the city had been
given a chance to be heard.
Aid .Naden n:' ed In this direction
and the motion carried.

REMOVING GLAMOR.
The meeting held by Aid. Pattullo
on Wednesday evening may be regarded as tiie opening of the municipal campaign. Aid. Hilditch, who
was asked to speak at the meeting,
did much in the course of his remarks to remove the glamor with
which it has been studiously attempted to surround Aid. Pattullo as a financier. The speech of Aid. Hilditch
went to show that in the handling of
the financial arrangements, the
chairman of the finance committee
only fo'lowed Ihe suggestion made to
the council by the representative of
the bank.
On the part of the dominant section of the council there has been of
late an attempt to make it appear
that Aid. Pattullo was a heaven-born
financier, that he was practically Indispensable to the city in this de-
partment. The history of the nego-
tiations which Aid. Hilditch makes
public woud tend to remove the halo
with which it was attempted to surround the head of the finance com-
niiiiee. He is shown to be common
clay, in fact, and to have done little
or nothing more in the financing of
the schemes of the city than any
other member of the council would
have done under similar circumstances. The Bank of Montreal
made advances and the finance committee accepted the terms. It has,
in fact, been a policy of drift to a
large extent. We do not use the
term ln any offensive sense. What
is evident is that the dominant section in public business worked hard
to keep up with public opinion and
took the course which presented itself to view.
In that course it has been generally accepted that Aid. Lynch and
Aid. Pattullo had the most to do.
When the question of deciding what
course to pursue with respect to
street work, the local improvement
plan was adopted. Without going
into the merits of the respective systems, there is no question that the
local Improvement plan found favor
more on account of its removing the
trouble of deciding between what
portions should he improved than on
account of its Intrlnsii lerits. It was
easier to say to t! : iesidents of any
district that il should have what it
asked for than to weigh the matter
and decide the matter on its merits.
The local Improvement plan has
its advantages, but if we are not mistaken, it was the principle of drift
thai actuated the council more than
anything else to adopt it to the extent to which il was carried in Prince
Rupert.
There are large questions to deal
with in Prince Rupert. The coming
year will call for careful administration, There are larger questions to
be deall witli than have come up this
lasl year. Among these Is Hie water
question. Il Is essential that careful
nun should be selected. In William
Manson, the electorate have a man
who lias had wide experience in dealing with public mailers. He is cautions and the city should be glad to
secure such a man to administer its
affairs.
to do it that would counteract effectually any such action. It is like the
outcry against the danger of police
search for liquor without a search
warrant. While in theory it throws
the door open to abuse it would never
be taken advantage of by a chief ot
police but once, for he would be dismissed if lie made a search without
excellent reason. This putting up
bogey men to try to stampede the
electorate will fail, for the public will
not be mislead by any such methods.
There are those who see party politics in all kinds of out-of-the-way
places.
.Mayor Stork boasted that only
three members of the city council
were members of the Liberal Associa-
tion. He might have added that
while he was president of the Association, he was not as fearful of Conservative bogeys as a member of tho
council who is not a member of the
Liberal Association, but who sees
party machines by day and by night.
This is Aid. Pattullo, whose usefulness as a municipal representative ia
lessened very materially by the predisposition he has to see a Conservative party move in the shimplest of
actions.
 o	
BLIND  PIG  CRUSADE.
It is announced that a crusade is
lo be instituted against the sellers of
liquor without licenses. This will
be welcome news to all who wish to
see the law carried out strictly, but
the question at once arises, why has
this not been done earlier? It looks
loo much like an election move at
this stage. There has been a determined demand for enforcement of
the law for some time. The police
commissioners cannot be regarded as
blameless that more stringency was
not shown in the matter.
There is again evidence that the
police commissioners, Mayor Stork,
and Aid. Mobley, for Mr. Halsey has
been away most of the term of office, following a system of drifting
allowed matters to run on without interference according to the sweet will
of those concerned.
The approach of election time
alone aroused the commission when
it was found that the bylaw was not
effective in some respects. Under the
excuse of getting a new bylaw
through, further delays have followed. There was the machinery,
however, under the old bylaw to put
down illicit selling. The administration of police affairs has not been
such as to recommend Aid. Mobley
for the mayor's chair.
 o	
Banker (to new tutor)—Always
bear in mind that in my children I
am entrusting to you my most precious possessions and give them youi
best. And what is your lowest
price?
MISREPRESENT SITUATION.
Capital Is attempted lo be made
oul of Ihe tacl thai Aid. Hilditch and
Aid. Smith oppoved certain sections
in the new liquor bylaw, it is being
represented that they favor putting
power in the hands of the (Oininls-
si iiers to deal unjustly with license
holders. Such an attempt Is mlsrep-
til ' on of tin- worst kind. Aid.
Smith during the discussion stated
that in practice the object aimed at,
namely, the ensuring that licenses
should nol be cancelled without good
cause was all right but It was a question whether the council had the
power to enact as it was proposing
to do. These aldermen simply aimed
at keeping the bylaw clear of clauses
that might render It liable to being
quashed.
The outcry ugalnst the commissioners being liable to cut off the
heads of hotel keepers without good
cause is very easy material to use in
an election campaign where an attempt is made by cheap clap-trap to
gain a few votes. In practice il does
not work out. There is no danger of
a commission so acting. Publico ln<
lon Is such that there would be S'mh
an outcry If an attempt were made

CAMPAIGN OPENED
(Continued From Page One.)
He was going to wait until the
criticisms were put forward before
saying much.
He believed that Mr. Manson did
not wish to run but was practically
forced to run by his supposed friends.
William Mnnson
Mr. Manson, being called to speak,
thanked Aid. Pattullo for an opportunity of appearing. He would not
take up any time, however, at this
stage. There had been a sort of
understanding between himself and
Aid. Mobley that the meeting should
not commence until after New Year.
He was going to stand by this.
Aid. Pattullo is entirely wrong
when he stated that Mr. Cuthbert's
appointment was made by himself.
He did not say that Mr. Cuthbert
had not done his work well. In the
matter of his appointment, Mr. Cuthbert was recommended by the citizens' committee and the composition
ot that committee was read, including Mr. Manson, Mayor Stork, Aid.
Naden and others.
Mr. Cuthbert had no instructions
from himself nor from any one else
as far as he knew. Mr. Cuthbert
had to follow rules laid down by the
act. No suggestion had been made
by anyone. He did it on his own
judgment as any assessor would do.
Referring to a statement of Aid.
Pattullo that Mr. Cuthbert was given
a government position as a reward
for his work as assessor, Mr. Manson
said before the assessment proposal
had come up It was arranged that Mr.
Cuthbert would take a position in
the civil service.
Dealing with the criticism that he
was not independent, Mr. Manson
said that he was as free and independent as any man, including Aid.
Mobley. He was just as free and
independent of the provincial governors as any one in the room.
M. M. Stephens
M. M. Stephens was somewhat surprised at the turn which the speaker had taken. The meeting had resolved Itself into a mutual admiration society. Aid. Pattullo praised
Aid. Mobley, and Aid. Mobley regarded Aid. Pattullo In a similar light.
Aid. Mobley was a man' that he
regarded as a friend, but Aid. Mobley had never been blamed for being the father of any legislation in
the city hall.
Aid. Mobley—"I do Is right, that's
why."
Mr. Stephens, continuing, referred
to the fact that Aid. Mobley was running for mayor instead of some one
else. He would regret to introduce
party politics into this campaign but
was it possible that a federal election
was ln sight and some one must be
got out of the way?
G. T. P, Taxation
He referred to the mayor's request
that the G. T. P. assessment question
should be kept out of this campaign.
He had not intended to introduce it
but Aid. Pattullo had introduced it
at the meeting in the theatre and
again that evening.
The more closely this G. T. P. assessment was looked into the less
advantage would come to the members of the council in the matter.
Aid. Pattullo had said there was
danger of the city being handed over
tn the G. T. P. Had the city not
been handed over lock stock and
barrel to the Bank of Montreal?
There had been a lot of talk about
the financial policy of the council.
All that that consisted of was the
getting of money wherever it could
be got.
.. As the campaign went on he would j
have  an  opportunity  to  more  fully
explain his position.
There had been  a    lol    of    talk
about, the  financial  policy    of    tbe
council.     All  that  consisted of was!
the   getting   of   money   wherever   it
could  be got.
As the campaign went on he would
have an opportunity to more fully
explain ills position.
Mayor Stork
Mayor Stork referred to the immense amount of work that has been
entailed upon the members of the
council. It has also entailed a lot of
criticism. The press has kept very
busy criticising. The council lias,
served well. They were prepared to :
answer any criticisms. The papers
had done a lot of harm in criticising
•the council.
They have been chared with creating a Tammany Hall. This originated when members of the council went
into the market nnil bought stock in
a newspaper. There were only three
member^ of I lie council who were
members of the Liberal Association.
If there was any Tammany Hall In
Prince Rupert the passing of the liquor bylaw by the council would show
it up.
Liquor Interests
For his part he could not see why
B*rank Clapp, a man who could buy
out Vernor Smith and Joe Merryfield ten times over, could not get a
license for selling liquor by the
wholesale. Continuing, the mayor
said that the Scott act was brought
on to smash up a gang that was trying to control the liquor interests in
Prince Rupert.
He believed that the objection to
the getting of money by the council
was not so much as to where the
council got the money, but that it got
it at all. Mr. Manson had a faculty
of getting bad advisors. He has a
great respect for Mr. Manson, but
he had hoped he would get better
running mates. But tonight he read
that he was supported by S. M. New-
ton.fl He was afraid Mr .Manson
was running in bad company again.
H. Douglas
H. Douglas being called to the
platform, read the planks of his platform.
Aid. Hilditch
Aid. Hilditch, in opening, said that
any criticism he had to offer during
the campaign would pertain to matters of policy alone, and there would
be no personal feeling. He did not
say that any man in last year's coun-
cil had not done his duty. He believed each had done what he felt
was in the public Interest. He was
opposed to the policy pursued in
many instances.
Dealing with Aid. Pattullo's financial policy, Aid. Hilditch said that
up to the time C. D. Rand arrived in
Prince Rupert there was no financial policy in the city. Mr. Rand
laid a proposition from the Bank of
Montreal. The bank offered to ad
vancve the money provided the city
made the Bank of Montreal its financial agents. Aid. Hilditch said he
asked Mr. Rand if it would make any
difference in the rates if the money
was borrowed on the credit of the
city, to be paid back out of general
revenue, or if borrowed on the credit
of the whole city, the work being
done by the local improvement plan,
or if borrowed on the credit of the
local improvement section when the
work was done.
Mr. Rand said the cheapest way
to borrow money was according to
th© first method. He said that the
difference between the rates in the
method of borrowing for local improvement on the credit of the whole
city and the borrowing for work to
be done out of general revenue on
the credit of the whole city would be
about six points in favor of the latter
method. This would make a difference as between 100 and 94 in the
prices of the debentures.
Pattullo's Finance
Aid. Pattullo was given a great
deal of credit for his financial policy.
Aid. Pattullo did nothing but follow the line of least resistance. He
followed as Mr. Rand said on the
local Improvement plan as laid down
by Aid. Lynch. When Aid. Pattullo
took upon himself the credit of the
financial policy he was taking too
much. Application was made to
other members and they did not give
as good terms as the Bank of Montreal.
Mr. Sweeney, of the bank, came up
nnd drew up the proposition and Aid.
Paltullo signed it. Was there any
Lloyd-George financiering in that?
i laughter).
The Situation
But worse still, when Mr. Sweeney
refused to advance more money, Aid.
Pattullo has said the u. T. P. was
responsible for the money not being
advanced. If that were true and the
G. T. P. was able to influence the
Bunk of Montreal not to advance it,
then it was able to influence it to
advance it. But the city had borrowed $500,000 from the I'lank of
Montreal. It was pledged to make
the Bank of Montreal its agents. If
the G, T. P. had the influence as
represented It could knock the city
when the debentures went on the
market and the city was in a worse
position than ever.
"We have the $500,000 instead of
$163,000," said Aid. Pattullo, "and
had that as a club,"
Aid. Hudltch relurned thai the
pity had not the money. It lias been
spent and the money lo repay It had
to be raised.
Com mission System
On the liquor bylaw he felt better
pleased with the present system of
commissioners. After the action of
Aid. Pattullo and Aid. Mobley and
Ihe dominent faction who tried to
make it a political machine, he had
come to the conclusion that the commission system was the best one. He
would deal more fully with that later
in the campaign.
Aid. Lynch
Aid. Lynch said that the finance
committee was forced by the adoption of the local improvement scheme
to secure money as AU!. Pattullo did.
He felt that with the guarantee of
Hie district and the guarantee of the
city back of that the security must
bo as good as bonds guaranteed by
the city for Investment out of general

is Express Companies   in   Canada  Must
Make Some Reductions.
Railway    Commission    Has    Fonnd
That the Prices Are Now
Too High.
Judgment has been given by the
Canadian Railway Commission on the
express rates cases, which declares
that rates are too high and orders
the companies to file lower tariffs
within three months.
It also states that express com
panics are owned by railway companies and therefore there is no occasion for the existence of separate
companies to handle the express business of Canada, but that it could be
done by the railway companies, as it
ish in fact being done now.
The judgment declares that the
express companies over-pay the railways for accomodation in stations,
and intimates that this is a convenient way of disposing of profits
which otherwise might be so conspicuously large as to be inconvenient.
The judgment declares that the
forms of contract which express
shippers are compelled to sign are
unreasonable and are designed to

COUNSEL FOR 0. N. II.
E. P. Davis, K. C, Vancouver Leaves
C. P. R. Service.
At the end of the present year E.
P. Davis, K. O, of Vancouver, who
for the past 19 years has aocted as
chief counsel for the C. P. R., in
that city, will sever his connection
witli that company to become counsel
for the Canadian Northern Railway
Company in this province.
Mr. Davis has been connected with
the C. P. R. as its chief legal adviser
in British Columbia since 1892, and
during that time has acted for the
company with conspicuous success in
many important, suits. Some surprise is expressed that he should
sever the connection, and it is accepted as proof of the shrewdness of the
Canadian Northern that they should
have secured his services, as he is
generally acknowledged to be a leader of the bar in this province.
In addition to Mr. Davis' appointment as counsel, his firm, Duvis, Marshall, Macneill anil Pugii, will after
January 1, act as solicitors for the
C. N.  R.

Suspending Licenses
Another section that caused some
discussion was one dealing with an
inquiry which it was specified should
be held into any alleged infraction of
the law when the commissioners
might for a first offence suspend the
license and for a second offence cancel the license. The use of the words
"may" or "shall" was discussed and
the advisability of incorporating such
a clause in view of the fact, as the
solicitor said that the commissioners had this power according to the
act without incorporating it here.

PUBLIC MEETING.
LONDON, Dec. 21.—Two pieces of
ancient tapestry recently discovered
at angford Hill, a Jacobean house
near Bude, Cornwall, were sold for
$33,000. The purchaser was Captain
H. Lindsay.
The principal piece, measuring 13
feet 4 Inches and 13 feet, 9 Inches,
wasl one of a set of panels of fifteenth century Arras tapestry, originally belonging to Cardinal Wolsey
and representing t hseeven deadly
sins. Three other of the panels are
now hanging at Hampton Court Palace. The second piece of tapestry
was part of a frieze, 14 feet by 2 feet
4 inches, originally made for Hampton Court Palace. Small pieces of
the frieze still hang there in the
great hall.
The tapestry was found packed
away in a box at Langford Hill. The
house belong to two maiden ladies,
who were unaware that heir roof
was harboring such treasures. It
was stated in the salesroom yesterday
that some years ago the panel,
packed in a box and described as a
carpet, was sold at auction for £1
10s.

of Col. Lamb, director of the immigration and colonization work of the

The colonel was in Ottawa a few

of age would be brought across said
the Colonel, though Ihe Army would
concentrate Its energies mainly on
the removal of those of seven io nine
years. Homes would be secured for
them in advance, anil Hie Army officers already had applications from
persons who desired to adopt boys
and girls. Country homes would be
selected, and a constant supervision
of these proteges would be maintained by the officers of the Army.

were in need of help. As a rule the

something that was not necessary.
The commissioners bad the power
now and why should it be put In?
Aid. Pattullo thereupon broke in
with the remark that it had been the
history of all time that there were
those who wanted arbitrary powers
and the sooner they burst it the better.
Application Forms
The section relating to the application for a license was referred to
by the solicitor and he made a request that It should be put back to
the original form in which he had
submitted it, namely, that application
"may" be made in the form set forth.
At a previous sitting a motion of
Aid. Pattullo that had been changed
to "shall" as the alderman said it
meant nothing the way it stood.
The solicitor explained on Tuesday
evening that "may" was the safer
course to follow. The anti-Oriental
clause in the license was not one that
could be enforced. Legal difficulties
might follow should they enact that
an application had to be made in that
form. By leaving it "may" the form
would be used.
Aid. Pattullo moved to alter the
wording to the original form "may,"
which was carried.
The committee rose and reported
the bylaw complete.
