The Mayor said that he proposed
it should go into effect at once.
Aid. Casey thought this would require the attention of the city solicitor. He believed that this might
come within the Act requiring 30
days notice. The city might find itself subject to a fine of $1,000 a day.
He thought they were acting unwisely, In connection with the steam
plant. They were saving only about
$900 a year by this. He did not think
that more than $600 could be saved.
He was afraid the efficiency of the
department would be affected. The
boliers would be liable to rust and
deteriorate.
Aid. McClymont concurred in the
report. He went very fully into the
whole situation, as It was affected by
the proposed changes in the pay
schedule. He pointed out, that In connection with the men at the lake,
there was the Item of free house and.
light to be taken into account, which
was certainly worth something. He
also alluded to the fact that the employees at the lake were not employed as engineers. They were employed as electrical men. He pleaded for
the making of a good showing in the
public utilities.'
Aid. Barrie wanted to know If, in
the first instance, it was engineers
that were called for for the positions
at the lake. He ban been led to so
believe, and that then they put them
at the electrical work.
Aid. Nelson said that he did not
consider the point as to whether the
proposed change could he brought
Into effect at once or not vital. If
legally, il was not possible to have
it made effective at once, then the
necessary notice could be given, and
allow It to come into effect as soon
as possible, lie look exception to
the attitude taken by some, that this
was an attempt to interfere with
Union scales. He said that, while he
was not the holder of a Union card,
he had had to do with unions and
union workers, and had entire sympathy with unions. He was more the
frieno' of unionism than the mountebanks that posed often as such. Had
the schedule Introduced been an ai-
tenipt to interfere with established
union scales here, lie would not have
been supporting It, The scale that was
proposed, was the one that was originally proposed for the workers at the
lake. There had been some aider-
■':"ii al thai time who wanted In-
creases and the Increases had been
given. The scale was one for electrical operators, which were what
was required at the lake, and nol
engineers, ii so happend that the
city at. the time had engineers working for it at the steam plant, and
these men usurped the positions that
would have gone to electrical men.
The work was still one for electrical
men. With the shutting down of the
steam plant in the city, the same sllu-
ations was produced here. It would
not be engineers that would' be needed,  but switchmen.
Aid. Nelson contended that the city
had fought out the question of public
ownership, in connection with the
electric lighting. The majority of the
citizens had seen differently to himself on the subject at that time. He
accepted the judgment of that time,
believing that the citizens were the
WANT CHANGES IN LICENSE
BYLAWS OP THE CITY NOW
A.  C.  Little Think.s  He  Is  Imposed
Upon And So Does Tho Majestic Theatre.
The city council had two communications last evening respecting the
license bylaws of the place. A. C.
Little thought that the demand for
$20, in addition to his other license,
because he bought some bear skins,
■was an imposition. The Majestic
Theatre wrote, arguing, that with the
small sized house he had, the $100
license was too much. The Health
Committee will take these up.
THINK  BRITISH  COLUMBIA IS
GIVEN  HEAVY ASSISTANCE
Federal Trade Commission Expresses
Opinion Upon Subject.
The investigation now being made
by the Federal Trade Commission, Into the conditions of the lumbering industry, has brought out in an emphatic way the opinion held by
American lumbermen, that far more
is being done to help the industry
on the British Columbia side of the
boundary than in the United States.
"British Columbia," stated counsel
at the recent hearing at Washington, D. C, "is laying the foundations
of a perferential tariff. An active virile commonwealth producing the
same commodity and competing in
the same markets is aiding its own

IK) NOT BE SURPRISED
AT THE RECRUITING BADGE
Some Of These Have Been Miulo In
Prince Rupert And May Be Seeu
At Any Time Now.
Citizens of Prince Rupert need not
be unduly alarmed if they see the
recognized recruiting badge hanging
from the left side of some soldiers
caps, or even from the hate of sonic
of the local ladies. The badge is of
red, white and blue, worked into a
rosette with ribbons hanging from it.
This is the recognized badge, and is
worn by ladies as well as by men.
There have been some made here,
at the instance of Afajor Huntington,
and these may be in evidence at any
time on the street. The Major has
set his heart upon the recruiting of
this company in Prince Rupert up to
nearly 200 men, and he would like
to get them from the city itself.
ALASKA BROUGHT INTO PORT
ABOUT 53,000 POUNDS FISH
The Steamer Reports That Weather
On The Banks Is Very Frosty And
Hard To Work In.
The fishing boat Alaska has reached port here with a catch of about
55,000 pounds of halibut. She reports that when she left the fishing
banks there was very disagreeable
weather. She came In coated with ice,
as other boats have done of late. It
is expectea that the conditions will
be better now.
Reduction Made In
Amounts To Be
Paid The Council
ones to decide. Now, he would say to
any company that would attempt to
upset the city's proposition "hands
off." But, if a publicly owned utility
was to be made popular in the city, It
must not be loaned up with all kinds
of overhead expenses. Ho still believed that tho department was overmanned. That was how it looked to
him. There appeared to be too many
generals In the force, and not a right
proportion of men thai were working.
With sixteen on the pay roll of a department, thai earned only about
$54,000 last year, and with the
wages and salaries representing $23.-
OUO, il seemed lo hlni thai there was]
o   lack   of  proportion.     It   was  top!
heavy.
I
This was a lime, when  men  In all
walks  of  life  were   feeling   the  pinches. There must come reductions, If
necessary, all along the line.  He did
not believe in culling down men who
were  getting  barely  enough   to  live
cm, and not touching those drawing
down larger amounts. He was assured   there  were  other   reductions  to
come in other departments, or if he I
did not he would be Inclined io move j
tor   'hem  now,  as  lie  fell   that  all
should   be   treated   alike.   The   task
was not a pleasant  one,  bul  ii  had |
to be faced.
Aid. Montgomery said that municipal i
ownership would not stand for the
load put on it. Municipal ownership
would get the biggest blackcye It
ever got. Tho wages paid, under the
new scale, was well above those paid
elsewhere. There was no need of a
steam engineer nt the lake. There
was need only of operators. From a
The city council last evening, on a
report from the committee of the
whole, that sat a few evenings ago,
decided upon the amount that would
be paid for the services of the Mayor
and the Aldermen for the coming
year. The amount was that which
was approved or by the Finance Committee in the first instance, and sets
an example in the matter of reductions. The Mayor will receive $1,500
and the Aldermen will got $300 for
the year. This Is a reduction of $500
in tho amount pa id the Mayor. , nd
$100 for each of the Aldermen.
While there was a difference of
opinion to some extent on the pari of
the aldermen, as to what the reductions should be, the sum fixed was
agreed upon as the one that mot with
Ihe general wish.
labor point of view, they were not
getting the worst of it. II was the
city's duly to protect public ownership, if municipal ownership failed,
ii was just such things as this thai
would' fl t> It.
Aid, Dybhavn agreed with the report. He agreed thai it was not engineers Ihat were required at the lake,
lie contended that the committee had
in view, a plan by which the ste'ani
plant could get up power if necessary
in about four hours.
Aid. Casey wanted to know how
the plant was to be got ready to take
over the load, when engineers were
not employed.
Aid. Dybhavn said '•'• was not In a
position to explain I :.ow. The pro-
posilion was being gone Into.

Annual Meeting Of
Hospital Board Was
Held Last Evening
The Hospital Board held its annual |
meeting last evening In the city hall,
when the annual reports were received and the directors for the ensuing
year were elected. The chair was
taken by the President, O. H. Nelson,
who merely opened the meeting, taking leave in order to attend the city
council. He referred to the pleasant
associations that there ban been on
the Board. He was retiring from it,
after serving practically ever since he
had come to the city. It was a work
that called for the best that was in
any one, as it meant doing something
for the alleviation of suffering. During the year that they had passed
through, it had been found necessary
to economize. The directors had a'l
worked well along that line and the
institution, in spite of all that, was in
good, efficient shape. Starting with a
substantial deficit, the result of the
year had been that this had been
materially reduced from about $4,-
700 to only $0G5.
Calling upon G. W. Morrow, the
Vice-President to take the chair, the
late president retired.
Mr. Morrow referred to the good
work done, but going into the situation, lie showed that it would be
necessary to continue to exercise all
the economy possible, if the Institution was to be kept going. He went
in'co some of the main features of
the 5'ear's work, and showed how the
finances had shown up.    The Board,

The council last ceiling, on the
first ballot for a market clerk, decided in favor of giving the position
to Frank Clapp. He takes the office
on a commission basis of 7 1-2 per
cent. This is the same commission
that has been collected on the produce sold there under the salaried
official, so the returns to the producer will be the same as In Ihe
past. The other applicants for the
position were F. B. Holland and' B.
E. Webster.
Before these applications were
opened, the amending bylaw governing  the  market   was   read   and   pul
through.    Under that bylaw the niar-

Under the bylaw, the utmost care will
be taken by the city that the consignors of produce are treated right.
At the same time the city will not,
take responsibility for any of the
goods. The new clerk, Frank Clapp,
will work on a commission basis, and
will not be drawing a salary from
the ' ty. Every precaution has been
taken (o give to the city the very
best, service that can be obtained, and
to insure the outside producer that
lie can gel all possible out of the consignments sent here. The market
should bo in the best possible shape
to serve the pltizens. At the same
time, the cltj itself is able to get
from under a financial loss, from
operation of the institution.
The next examination for the entry
of Naval Cadets will be helo at the
examination centres of the Chi] Service Commission in May, 11116, successful candidates joining the College
