ALDERMEN DIFFER *
REGARDING PLANS
Aid. Basso-Bert Supported By Aid.
McClymont atid"Morrison Desired
Estimates om -the Hydro-Electric
Proposition Before Starting In On
Actual Pip% Laying And Details
At the council meeting last >|k>h-
ing, with Aid. Morrlssey, the acting
mayor, presiding, there was quite a
full discussion of Ihe question of
the hydro-electric proposition and
the best way of proceeding with the
undertaking. The new members of
the council desired information as to
the estimated cost of the undertaking before starting in with the details. The matter was discussed at
some length before the decision was
arrived at to call for applications
from station men for digging the
trenches for the pi pie; and of the
putting in of a road at a cost of
$2,000 by day labor.
Another motion called for the
preparing by the city engineer and
the electrical engineer of estimates
and plans for the hydro-electric proposition.
Roadway at Lake.
The first matter to come up was
that of the road. The majority of
the board of works brought In the
following report:
"Re Roadway Salt Water    to    Sha-
watlans:
"Your board of works recommends
th^j,* the city engineer be instructed
to proceed with the construction of a
roadway between salt water aud
Shawatlans Lake in accordance with
the submitted plans at an estimated
cost of $2,000, said work to be done
by day  labor.
"T. R. MAITLAND.
'"JOHN DYBHAVN."
Minority Report,
Aid. Basso-Bert followed this with
a minority report, which was as follows:
"Re the resolution to proceed with
the approach road to Shawatlans
Lake, I beg to state as Follows:
"While  I  am anxious  to see  the
hydro-electric started as soon as possible I cannot approve of the committee's    procedure In this    connec-[
tion.
"At an informal meeting of the
council, in spite of the fact that no
profile or estimates were available
and in spite of the fact that I
strongly objected to proceed with an
expenditure prior to having plans
and estimates regularly submitted to
the board of works, a resolution was
passed Instructing the city engineer
to proceed with the work.
"The meeting not being a formal
one, the resolution consequently
could not be enforced. The city engineer was then instructed to rush
in on this in 24 hours a sketch of
■the aforesaid road without a detailed
estimate and quantities, but merely
stating the cost in a lump sum.
"Gentlemen, I have 15 years of
practical experience in public work's
gathered on three continents. I consider that the practice of proceeding with work's without first ascertaining the cost of them is reckless
and extravagant and as a representative of the people will see that such
practice is not, so far as I niyselt
am concerned, elevated to the dignity
of a system.
"V. BASSO-BERT."
Explained Position.
Aid. Basso-Berl explained that he
differed with the majority of the
board, not because he was not anxious to see all  done that could  be

done. He felt that when the engineer
on 24 hours' notice was called upon
to get plans for a road ll was not
giving the proper consideration to
the subject. It. was not business.
Aid. Kerr said that he knew the
piece of road suggested. He wanted
to hear from the city engineer as
to whether he had an estimate of the
cost of the road.
Aid. Maltland supported the proposition. He quoted figures to show
that the estimated cost of the hydroelectric was about $271,000 and that
there was $220,000 available for it.
Aid. Morrlssey, as acting mayor,
explained that this was no new matter. It had for three years been before the different councils. There
were estimates on hand and they
might well proceed with It.
Aid, McClymont.
Aid. McClymont said he was seconding a motion later in the evening.
He would speak to this now. He felt
that they were all anxious to see the
hydro-electric scheme carried forward as soon as possible. He did not
approve of hurrying along simply for
the purpose of getting started. They
might then become the laughing
stock of the city. According to the
figures that were submitted the estimated cost of this hydro-electric proposition was to be $550,000. It
would appear that they would on estimates be about $68,000 short in
carrying this out. He was not sure
that this work was something -that
called for ordinary engineering or
for the electrical engineer.
The report of the majority    carried,  Aid.   Basso-Bert  opposing.
Estimates to Come.
Following tnat a resolution carried calling on the city engineer and
tiie elecli'li-al engineer to prepare detailed estimates of the hydro-electric
undertaking and the cost of a gravity-
system of water supply.
Wanted Retails.
Later in the evening another motion was introduced dealing with this
same question on motion, of Aid. Basso-Bert and Aid. McClymont. This
resolution  was as follows:
"That no portion of the hydroelectric undertaking be proceeded
with except the road from salt water
to Shawatlans Lake until the city
engineer and the superintendent of
lighting submit estimates, plans and
specifications and same are filed
with the city clerk according to the
bylaw."
Aid. Dybhavn opposed the motion.
Advances Reasons.
Aid. Basso-Bert said that he was
just as anxious as anyone to see the
hydro-electric proposltioa gone
ahead with. He wanted data on this.
They had no information. They did
not even know where the power
house was to be. He did not want
the council to start on such a work
until It was found out what the cost
was to be and Where the money was
to conic from. This was only a business proposition. He amended the
motion by eliminating the road
which had been passed by ihe coun-
cil.
Opposed Motion.
Aid. Montgomery defended proceeding with the work. He contended that there had been about $70,-
000 charged up against the hydroelectric scheme which was not included In Mr. Thompson's estimate.
This included $28,000 spent on surveys, $12,000 for the Morse Creek
pump, $16,000 for water recoras
and the pumping station at Shawatlans. He believed that the money
left to finish the work would very
closely do it.
Aid. Maltland said they must do
something. They must dig the ditches, buy the pipe. He favored doing
the work now when they had good
weather and get the water down.
Aid.   Morrison.
Aid. Morrison failed to see where
there was to be much gain by rush-
COMPLETING ONE OF THE
AMERICAN BATTLESHIPS
<^,K,'
The United States Dreadnought New York, now nearing completion at
the Brooklyn Navy Yard. Only the finishing touches remain before placing the New York oil the list of American battleships ready for "fight
or frolic." The New York, a sister ship of the battleship Texas, will be
the biggest and most powerful battleship afloat when she is finally reported for duty to the Navy Department. The New York will not occupy-
that honor long, however, for England, Germany and Japan are busily-
engaged in constructing warships that will exceed her in tonnage and
armament. By that time "Battleship No. 39," plans for which have been
drawn, will be under way, and w;hen "Battleship No. 39," as yet unnamed, is finished, about five years from now, she will exceed anything
as yet dreamed of in the way of floating forts. Plans for -'No. 39" have
already been approved by the United States Navy Department.
RADICAL MEMBER
VIOLATES RUL
Sir Stuart Samuel Has to Pay Fines
Amounting to $65,000 for Voting
In House While Firm Had  Government Contract—Irish  Question \
Is  Still   to   the   Fore   In   London
London, Feb. 16.—Sir Stuart Montague Samuel, the radical member
For Whitechapel, lias been ordered
by Mr. Justice Rowlatt to pay the
penalties and costs amounting In all
to $65,U0U because he voted in the
House of Commons while his firm
had a contract with the British Government. The money will he paid.
Dr.  U'm. Bird was the informer.
The Act of Parliament under
which Sir Stuart ivas condemned
says that it is unlawful for a member of the House of Commons to he
even indirectly    interested    in    any
Government  contract.  Notice of appeal  has been given.
The Irish Situation.
All reports that a settlement of
tiie Irish question is being reached
along the line of the exclusion oF the
Four Protestant counties oF Ulster
are being received with great caution here. There is a great and a
growing anxiety In the unofficial
Liberal Irish ranks concerning the
present position, but each day makes
it more clear thai any settlement
based ou this exclusion of Protestaut
Ulster will be regarded as an equivalent for the Irish Parliament.

Blackburn, England, Feb. 16.—
iMilitant suffragettes last night fired
a huge cannon captured from the
Russians In one of tha battles of the
Crimean War and which tor sixty
years has stood silent as an ornament in the city park here. The
whole city was shaken by the explosion.
The people flocked into the streets
in the darkness, fearing a mine disaster in the neighborhood. It was
found the suffragettes had fortun-
nately carefully cleared the gravel
and -3tones that had accumulated in
the cannon away from the bore before ramming home the heavy
charge of gunpowder. Fortunately
there were no casualties.

The City Engineer and the Board of
Works to Decide imi
Rates.
A start is to be made ou the pi;.e
line for the hydro-electric proposition at Lakes Shawatlans and Wood-
worth. The city engineer had reported that this was something the
council should decide upon as soon
as possible. It should decide how
the work was to be done so a start
might be made.
The board of works on this letter
had considered the matter and last
evening reported in favor of the work
being done by station work. It was
recommended that applications be
called for from station men and that
the city engineer and the board of
works decide upon the rates to be
paid.
The report was adopted by the
council.

The  Flagship of the   City  Fleet     In
Now in a Dangerous
Condition,
The city's fleet may be altered
from wooden construction to that of
steel in line with modern ideas. This
was the trend of the report of the
sanitary committee last night at tho
council meeting. Aid. Kerr, tho
chairman of the committee, said
that the flagship of the city's fleet,
the garbage scow, was in bad shape
and not at all seaworthy. The conv
mittee had decided to recommend
that the purchasing agent call for
tenders at once for a steel vessel.
Aid. Morrison agreed with the suggestion. He said It would not bo
creditable to have any commodore
go down  with the craft.

ItAlSE PROM  ALBERTA.
Says the Edmonton Journal of a
few days ago:
"Today's financial cable from London says that the steps which British
Columbia has taken to supervise
municipal borrowing in thai province
bus created a must favorable Impression among Investors and will
probably result in the placing of the
municipal bonds on the llsl of securities thai trustees may purchase.
"This is a step thai the Journal
lias joined with others In urging on
the government of Alberta and it is a
pity iliat this province was not the
first of the western provinces to
move in the matter. Saskatchewan
has received a good deal of prestige
as a result of its legislation along
these lines, passed in December, This
British Columbia had now largely
copied. Speaking of the Saskatchewan
Act, the Canadian Gazette says that
it 'is bound to enlist the emphatic
approval of Canadian bankers and
proniineni Financiers resident in London, who will welcome Ihe adoption
of similar legislation by oilier provinces.' Last summer Mr. Justice La-
niont and the Hon. W, F. A. iiir-
geon, attorney-general and provincial
secretary of Saskatchewan, spent
some time while in London in personally acquainting themselves with
the nature of the control exercised
by the Local Government Board presided over by Mr. John  Burns."

AS TO MARCONI
L. C.  MAXSE,  EDITOR  NATIONAL
REVIEW, MAKES ATTACK
ON LORD MURRAY.
Bitterness Aroused Over   the   Wireless Shares   Transaction   in
Loudon.
On I lie eve of I lie re-assembling
of Parliament, L. C, Maxse, editor of
the National Review in London, returned to Lord .Murray's connection
willi the .Marconi shares dealings in
u long letter to the Morning Post.
Among other things, Mr. Maxse sug-
nesls that Ihe House ol Lords appoint a seleci committee to examine
Lord Murray on oath, and thus
"spare him the temptation of making
a speech without any moral sanction."
Referring to Lord .Murray's dealings with the missing stock broker,
Fenner, .Mr. Maxse says thai Lord
Murray's trusteeship of tin' Libera]
party's funds cost the party between
$150,000 and $21)11,11(10 through Hie
broker alone, apart from any losses
on  American  Mareonis.
"No proceedings," lie says, "were
taken against Fenner, who had misappropriated tills Immense sum, although the chief ministerial whip
was aware that, another client's property had been likewise depleted to
the extern of over $30,000. Fenner
was allowed to remain in business
at the expense of his victims whose
losses ultimately reached over £100,-
ooo.
Lord .Murray is further accused of
neglecting his plain duty In remaining silent while the select committee of Inquiry was sitting, "though
according to li e sworn statements
of his lirothcr. Captain Murray, he
was in ihe country For nearly two
months of the committee's sittings."
Murray's trusteeship ol'    Hie liberal
Mr. Maxse also calls upon Lord
Murray to account For the huge accumulation ot secrel party Funds on
tho eve of the Co nation of 1911,
at a date when the honors list would
presumably be under discussion, and
also io explain how lie came to invest $105,000 of the party's funds

the thought that will be ever present

people oF Ulster driven to extreme
measures to resist  it.
In view of the gravity of the question the House of Lords is taking the
remarkable course of raising an
amendment which will be moved by
Lord Middleton couched in the following terms: "This House regrets

BETTERMENT OF
THE HUMAN RACE
DR. STEPHEN SMITH   ADVAxVCES
SOME  IDEAS RELATIVE TO
SUBJECT.
He Advocates Cultivating    Virtuous
I train Cells As an
Aid.
Echoes from the Conference for
the Betterment of the Human Race
will continue to be heard for some
time. Some of the theories pro-
pounded were beyond the grasp of
ordinary people but other tilings
were worth listening to and thinking about, says the Montreal Mail.
Dr. Stephen Smith, president of the
Conference, spoke of his "Brain Cell
Theory." The results that follow
logically in wake of his theory are
certainly to be desired. No one knows
whether Dr. Smith is correct or not,
but many hope that he is and see no
reason  to doubt   that   he is correct.
His principle is this: Cultivate the
defective brain centre, the brain
cells oF that centre will be expanded
and energy in the desired direction
stimulated.
Eugenics, Dr, Smiili said, had
emphasized physical Improvement.,
but he -ays mental Improvement Is
more Important.
"If you are nol musical aud wan I
to lit- a musician, begin to develop
your musical brain cells," lie says.
'Think about music, practice It, concentrate in.-hi ii ami in proportion
to the energy of your concentration

will be your musical ability. The possibilities of the human race are infinite; whatever we lack we can supply to ourselves, if we will. Heredity
is an inviolable law, but it is not unconquerable. As are his brain cells
so is the man.
"Traced to its true source, ii will
be Found that opportunity accounts
for most of the difference in men.
The farm laborer toiling alone has
none of the intelligence and vivacity
in conversation that the village
tailor, cobbler or blacksmith has,
though equally endowed mentally.
The armor has few brain stimulants,
while those of the latter classes are
abundantly supplied tnrough constant contact with customers." .
rjr. Smith asserts that not only intellectual improvement can be effected through this means, but that also
moral re-awakening may be furthered. "Soul cells are one sort of brain
cells," he says. He quotes Haeekel,
tbe German philosopher:
"Wo have now ascertained in the
dearest, most indisputable manner
that all which we term the 'soul' is
in a scientific sense nothing more
than the total efFect or Function of
the 'soul' cells o the numerous neurons in the brain."
Dr. Smith discusses the problem
of crime and criminals a* one in direct relation to brain-cell development.
"This plan of ihe treatment of
criminals strikingly illustrates Its
value compared with the antiquated,
barbarous, punitive methods si ill
practised, When Socrates said, 'Re-
inove all conditions Which incite to
vice and substitute the allurements
of virtue,' he really said. 'Cease to
stimulate the vicious brain cells
Which are now excited and govern
thought and they will waste and
cease lo Influence; stimulate the
virtuous cells and they will enlarge
until they control all action.' Governor Hunt. oF Arizona manages his
prisons in the right, way. He does
not remind his prisoners that they
are criminals, but builds up their
characters, restores their self-respect, strengthens their weaknesses
and cultivates in them a proper appreciation of their relation to
others,  and   to society  in  general."
