City Council Decides To Lay Matter
Over For Further Con-
sideratfon.
Considerable discussion arose over
one of the clauses in the Indemnity
bylaw which was taken up for its
second reading at the council meeting last evening. The council had
dissolved itself into committee, with
Aid. Casey In the chair.
The Indemnity tor the Mayor, it
the bylaw passes will be $1,500 as
last year, and the Aldermen are to
receive $300 as last year, to be paid
monthly.
Aid. McRae moved that Instead of
Clause 5 reading that Aldermen be
not paid If they were absent from
the meetings for four consecutive
weeks, etc., that $3.00 be deducted
if an Alderman la absent from a committee meeting and $2.00 If absent
from a council meeting, as he did
not think that the clause as It read
would secure the purpose Intended.
Aid. Montgomery was not in sympathy with the amended clause, as he
had to work for his living and was

New York, Jan. 22.—Rio de Janeiro and Pernambuco dispatches announce that the British cruiser Glasgow has aunk the German commerce
raider a hundred and thirty miles
off Para. The vessel is believed to be
the Vlneta. Although the information is unofficial, It is considered to
be authentic as the account ot the
raider's position corresponds with
the locality where the destruction of
shipping waa greatest.

A letter was read at the City Council last evening fron. Chas. C. Perry,

made to the city.
The presenation consisted of an
Enfleld (1853) muzzle loading rifle
and bayonet, which was, actually used
by the guards of the Hudson's Bay
Company wherewith to repel aggression on the part of the Indians at the
fort at Port Simpson. There was also
three azes as used by the Indians in
the early days for hewing and other
work.
It waa suggested In the correspondence that this might form the nucleus of a collection it may be possible to add to as time goes on. It

In the absence of Mayor McCaffery
from the city, Aid. McCIymont was,
elected to the Chair at the Council
meeting last evening.
The much debated question
throughout Canada on the high cost
of living came up before the City
Council again last evening and was
disposed of for the present.
At the last regular meeting of the
Board the matter had been handed
over to the General. Committee, who
reported last evening as follows:
.Mayor and Council,
Dear Sirs:
Your Finance and General Com.
mittee report that they have had under consideration the various report?
cf merchants, re the high cost of living, and ha-.e carefully considered
the same, and that your Committee
is of opinion that the high cost of
living is caused by the manufacturers, and not by any action of the local merchants. And your Committee
further report that they recommend
that the resolution sent to this Council by Ihe City of Nanaimo lie endorsed, and such resolution, duly en-
doi'3ed, be sun lo the proper author!- !
ties.
The resolution referred to in  ihe
General Committee's report  did not
altogether meet with the City Clerk's '
a; poval,  and   before  taking  further ,
action   lie   submitted   Hie   following j
resolution   for  ihe   Aldermen's  consideration,    which    resolution    later j
was adopted on motion of Aldermen !
McMeekin and Dybhavn:
WHEREAS the Government or
Canada has taken some steps regarding the high cosi of living throughout the Dominion, but, nevertheless.
in order to obtain satisfactory results souk further s'e] s must he
taken:
AND WHEREAS the purely local
investigations made by the individu
al cities will not, in our opinion, lead
• to any very satisfactory results:
BE IT THEREFORE RESOLVED
that the Government of Canada be
pressed to take prompt and strong
measures for the purpose of reducing
■the high cost of living by regulating,
if necessary, the export of food stuffs;
the removal of tariff barriers on food

After the regular business of the
council had been disposed of Acting
Mayor McCIymont brought forwprd
the question of the appointment of
the License and Police Commissioners. He thought that the people
should have the right to elect these
commissioners instead of the present system of having them chosen
from Victoria. Some cities in British
Columbia have that right, but not
all. At a certain meeting, held recently, when this matter was spoken
of, he said that it was the unanimous
opinion of the meeting that the present system should be abolished and
that the matter be taken out of politics. He thought that the City Council should send a resolution to this
effect to the Provincial Government,
and that the commission might consist of the Mayor, the County Court
Judge and one citizen. This was the
way it was handled In the east.
Aid. Montgomery thought the
Province was going dry.
Aid. McCIymont continuing, said
a resolution should he sent by this
council, as all legislation would be
done in the next few weeks.
Aid. McRae moved that a resolution be drafted, that the Commission Board consist of the Mayor,
County Court Judge and one citizen,
as suggested by the Acting Mayor.
This being seconded by Aid. Dybhavn.
Aid. Mongomery did not see the
necessity of having License Commls-
soners at all. The city should have
all to do, both with the license and
police. They had to pay all Ihe expenses and should have the nay who
was to be on the Board, and would
include with (hat the School Board.
When they take this load off the City
Council they take off part of their
responsibility. The city has to foot
the bills. These commissioners can
cause a great deal of trouble and
have  very  little  responsibility.    He
was in favor of sending a petition to
the House.
Aid. Dybhavn agreed in part with
Aid. Monigoniery, but not altogether
with such a drastic measure. He was
; of   the   opinion   that   the   proposed
resolution should be sent to the Government and that it would be an improvement, and possibly that Aid.
Montgomery's might be an added Improvement. But that instead of the
proposition of the County Court
Judge, that the commission consist
of the Mayor and two citizens.
Aid. Casey agreed with the changing of the system, but not with the
Mayor in reference to appointing the
County Court Judge, as it would
practically mean an election for life.
Aid. Smith thought It ought to be
left in the hands of the Mayor to appoint two.
Aid. Montgomery said the enly
reason he could see for the present
system was just to hold a power over
the city and also have a certain political hold or 'he city. He thought
they would have a better hold on the
commissioners if they got away from
politics and make the council responsible for the whole thing. He moved
an amendmen', "That the present
system of commissioners be abolished and the City Council do the
work."
The amendment was lost, and the
motion carried with the suggested
change that It read the Mayor and
tw0 citizens.

Rae thought the resolution submitted by ihe city was an improvement
over Ihe Nanaimo one. Aid. Montgomery could not see much difference
in the resolutions. Aid. Casey pointed
out that there was an ommisslon of
meat from the resolution. And as
there seemed to be a strong monoply
in this commodity, he would like lo
have that included. Outside of that,
he thought the Council had gone as
far as they could in - he matter, Acting Mayor McCIymonl thought that
they had done all they could, and

was buying from P. Burns & Company at a lower price than tbe Burns
Company were paying themselves.

Aid, .McRae explained tliat an Alderman could be away three weeks
and return for the fourth and again
co away and so on, and there were
other possibilities.' Council meetings,
were the least of tho Aldermen's
troubles. Committee meetings took
up more time and were more important, therefore members should bo
penalized for being absent from a
committee meeting. What he was trying to get at was that Ihe outside
public should lie getting what they
were paying for, if that were possible. He did not intend to penalize
Aid. Montgomery or any other one.
lie claimed that he was jus' as much
a working man as Aid Montgomery,
Work was really done In committee.
Therefore he thought the amount lie
proposed to deduct was fair.
Aid, cany was no particular
which course they took, \ll he asked
for was fair consideration, and that
he be not made to suffer. He would
attend all meetings possible, but
could nol gel away at all times. He
thought thai they might arrange to
have committee meetings In the evenings. He felt thai they v. ould be
penalizing men who were working
for wages.
Aid. Montgomery did not see why
ii could not all be done at the council meetings on  Monday evenings,
On motion of Aid. McCIymonl and
McRae it was decided to report progress ami lay the matter over.
