Aid. Casey raised the question at
the council meeting last evening as
to whether there would this year be
a joint committee or whether there
would be separate committees. He
explained that he was not playing
for a place on the Finance Committee. It was understood that there
was a General Committee, but the
financial business did not seem to
be taken into consideration at the
General Committee and seemed to
lie carried on elsewhere.
The Mayor explained that he intended following the course adopted
last year. That there was only one
committee for the present, and all
the aldermen had a right to attend.
This committee would meet at 4
o'clock on Thursday afternoon of

It Is reported around the city that,
following the removal of J. R. Beatty
as wharf Manager of the Government wharf, the offer of the position
may be made to one of the popui ■■
returned soldiers, viz James Neville.
While he is at present employed
at the city Fire Hall, the placing of
him in charge of the wharf, in view
of the fact that a change has been
decided upon there, would be most
popular. A number of friends have
already made representations in the
interests of James Neville, but It is
believed that this will hardly be

London, Jan. 15.—The confernce
of the Allied Premiers and Cabinet
Ministers in Rome divides attention
in London with the Kaiser's order to
his army and navy, which is regarded as a definite departure from the
German IHle' that peace Is possible
on the German terms.
The Westminster Gazette points
out that the Kaiser's message is out
of tune with th? negotiations, and
suggests that it is a hasty effort to
stop the evidence of change in Austrian opinion.
The Kaiser's Order To
His Army And Navy
Amsterdam, Jan. 15, (via London.)—A Berlin telegram says that
the following order of the German
Emperor to the army and navy has
been officially published:
Conjointly with the allied (Central Powers) rulers. I proposed to
our enemies to enter forthwith into
peace negotiations. Our enemies refused my offer. Their hunger for
power desires Germany's destruction.
The war will be continued. Before
God and humanity, I declare that on
the Governments of our enemies
alone falls the heavy responsibility
for all the further terrible sacrifices
from which I wished to save you.
With justified  indignation at our
enemies'   arrogant   crime   and   with
determination to defend our holiest

City Assessment Report
For The Year 1917
Presented To Council
The city assessment will be about
10 per cent, lower this year than
last, is the announcement made in
the Assessor's report for the year
1917.
At the council meeting last evening the question of the assessment
was taken up and Ihe following report submitted from the Assessor's
office:
Re Assessment For 1917.
Gentlemen:
In accordance with your instructions of October 17, 1917, I have
made an assessmen' for the year
1917, returning the completed rolls
to the City Clerk,
From the attached statement yoii
will find the total that can he levied
on to be $11,645,595.
This is a decrease of $2,190,219,
or about 16 per cent, from the previous year. Comparing it with the
highest assessment ttiat the city has
had, it shows a decrease of $5,840,-
890, which is a reduction of 33.4 per
cent.
It is now slightly below tbe assessment for the year 1912. Taking
into consideration the developments
that have taken place In the surrounding country since then, and the
improvements made in the city, it
would seem that an assessment as
the city had it In 1912 before even
the railway was completed, can not
jbe considered excessive now; and i
fSffi eoiifidoni thai with a return of
normal times the values as given In

HIGH COST OF

29 last, I did, on the 30 of December, write to the City Clerk, Vancouver, a copy of which letter I herewith present to the council.'
"On the 10 January I received an
answer from Vancouver, which I now
present, with a statement. This, however, you will perceive gives us abso.
lately no information of any value
whatever. So far as getting information from Vancouver is concerned, it
would appear that there is none to
get, as that city is, taking exactly the
same steps that we are taking here,
except that they seem to he making
special inquiries from certain Chinese firms. This phase struck me as
being peculiar until I considered it:
In all probability the Chinese firms

A report was read from the Acting
City Engineer, P. Lorenzen, on the
purchase of lumber for street repair
at the City Council last evening. It
read as follows:
Gentlemen:
Re purchase of lumber for Street
Repair:
I have received two tenders for
lumber.
One from Mr. Little at Terrace,
quoting $15.50 for 90,000 ft. of 3-
inch, and $16.00 for 10,000 ft. of
I'-inch hemlock; and one from Albert
& McCaffery, quoting $15.00 for the
total amount of 100,000 ft. of fir
lumber.
As I was Instructed at a meeting
of the General Committee to use my
own judgment, and as the placing of
the order was urgent, I have asked
the City Purchasing Agent to accept
the offer of Messrs. Albert & McCaffery for 100,000 ft. of fir lumber at
$15.00.
Considering the difference in price
and the difference between hemlock
and fir, I had no hesitation in accepting this offer.
Yours truly,
P. LORENZEN,
Acting City Engineer.
Aid. Casey took exception to the
manner In which the tender for this
supply had been called. He thought
that It would have been wiser for
the council to advertise for tenders.
A public advertisement would be
fairer than asking by letter. Although the figures submitted by the
Arms tendering seemed fair, the
other system of advertising would be
preferable.
The Mayor made explanation how-
It came about that letters had been
resorted to In this Instance, but
agreed with Aid. Casey that it was
better t0 call for tenders for all supplies.
The report was adopted on motion of Aldermen Dybhavn and McMeekin.
re-organizing their different departments and preparing generally for a
busy season's work.
Prospects are very bright 'n the
Forestry Department for a successful season, and an increased volume
ef business is reported.
Mr. M, A. Grainger was recently
appointed Chief Forester at Victoria
for the Province, a position for
which his training and long connection with tlie branch peculiarly
fits him. Having been in an Important position In the branch ever
since it was created, Mr. Grainger
Is eminently fitted to discharge the
duties which his new office calls for.
Mr. Grainger Is a native of England, who has, seen a great deal of
the Empire.
When the Forestry Commission
went through this Province Mr.
Grainger acted as secretary for it for
the greater part of Its tour, and in
the drawing up of Its report his
mathematical genius .was of Invaluable assistance. He is responsible for
the graphic and illuminating diagrams which appear in that report,
as well as for those which have been
made use of annually since in the
reports of the branch. In these is told
the story of the Province's timber in
a manner which brings, the facts
home to one very vividly and clearly.
The new Chief Forester assisted in
drafting legislation, along the lines
decided by the Government, and
handling the preliminary arrangements for the organization of the
forest branch, and upon the organization becoming complete he was appointed as Assistant Chief Forester,
in charge of the record office, which
position he held up to the time he
took over the duties of Chief Foresv-
ter as acting heat! of the branch.
Mr. Grainger is an exceedingly
capable official, courteous to the public, and with an intimate knowledge
of the timber resources of British
Columbia.
