Aid. George Kerr will enter
upon his duties as acting mayor

Newton this evening. Last night
at the Council meeting the
mayor named Aid. Maitland to
act on the finance and the light
committees until the return of
Aid.   Morrissey.
At the special meeting of the City
Council last night It was decided to
take the assessment roll of last year
as the basis tor this year without a
new assessment being made. A report from the city solicitor on the
subject was read as follows:
Offlce of the City Solicitor,

Re Municipal Assessment Year 1915.
Gentlemen,—At a meeting of the
Council held on Monday, 25th inst.,
the question of how the assessment
roll for the present year should Ik
made up was discussed in a preliminary manner.
The question raised was whether
the Assessor should proceed to compile his assessment under Part 1,
Section 205, of the Municipal Act,
or whether the Council should, under the authority of Part 2 of said
Section, adopt for this year the assessment roll of last year; and, with
•'a view to further proceedings, it was

referred   to me  to make
unor. the whole matter.
I look upon thc question now
raised as a most important one, and
one  requiring  careful  consideration.
An Assessor who acts in the ordinary way, under ordinary circumstances, has always a difficult task to
pe.ioni'. He has, to the best of his
judgment, following the lines laid
down by the Muniplcal Act, to decide
what valuations should be put upon
°ach lot in the who.e city. This
duty has always been most difficult,
tj perfi tn in such a way as to give
satisfaction  to  all  ratepayers.
An assessor may, in some municipalities, at some time, find himself
meeting -inflated values on account of
what is commonly known as a boom,
and a level-headed assessor does the
Dest he can to meet that condition,
not always successfully.
At the present time in the city of
Prince Rupert, and all over tlritish
Columbia, the very opposite of a
boom exists, and the Assessor ln this
or In any other municipality, If he!made,
wished to make a reasonable assess-,     ia)
a    report equalities and  practically joined   in sessment to stand for this year. As
ment, will be met, not with the
'rouble of a boom, but with ihe
trouble of a panic.
In the case of a boom bis object
should be, and no doubt would be,
to keon himself cool ami not put on
ao high values^ but in the case of
I i panic such as we have existing at
j the  present  time  it will  be   doubly
the request that they should be corrected, and this was done.
If, therefore, we start with the
proposition that we have tbe Assessment Roll of 1914, which, although'
It may not be absolutely perfect
fund I might say no assessment roll
was ever perfect), nevertheless it
appeared to be satisfactory to the
ratepayers  ot  large.
The Municipal Act, Section 205,
Sub-section 2, gives to the Council
power as follows:
"If It thinks fit, by resolution
adopt for any year the assessment
roll of the previous year, with such
amendments and alterations as are
by this section made permissible."
The section further provides what
these amendments and alterations
are to be, and they are fully set out
in tbe section under heads (a), (b),
and (c). The amendments are to be
made by the Assessor before the passing uf the final resolution adopting
the old list; the alterations to be
put shortly, are:
Changes  of ownership.
th) Correction of manifest errors
in the name of the as ^ssod owner
or !    tho description of the property.
fc) Alterations with regard lo Improvements made on the land since
last  assessed.
I understand the question of assessing land, the great point is to see
that all parties are assessed on an
equal basis, and no person is really
hurt even If the assessment on his
piece of property is too high, provided his neighbors are assessed at a
proportionate rate.
It appears to me that Sub-section
2, Section 205, for whatever reason
it was passed, is well calculated to
meet the present emergency, and
should be taken advantage of.
With regard to the procedure to
be adopted, I think the first thing
Is that the Council should pass a resolution proposing that the Assessment Roll for last year be adppted.
This resolution should be sent to
the City Assessor, who should then
be Instructed to examine the assessment roll of 1914 and make the
amendments pointed out by Sub-sec-

members of the Council will leave

Princess May and will be at liberty
to proceed east if they deem it necessary in connection with the finances
of the city.
Last night Aid. McClymont called
attention to the fact that he had left
Council last Monday before this came
up. He said he did not approve of
two going. While the situation might
be critical it was not intricate. Having *in view criticisms on a former
occasion when representatives went
on a financial tour he did not want
the Council to become open to such
criticism again. There were complaints made then about hauling a
second man at.o*,s ttifc cc.itinent.
There might be the same in this
case.
The mayor said he was perfectly
willing to have the matter brought
up. He had talked it over with
every member before taking the
step.
"With one exception," interjected
Aid.  Montgomery.
The mayor said he might be allowed to finish. He was going to say
with the exception of Aid. Montgomery. He had not taken it up with
the latter, believing it would be a
hopeless case to secure his co-operation. He might have been wrong on
that point, but he had so decided.
He had sought to have the assistance
of Aid. Morrissey, who was, perhaps,
more conversant with the financial
side than  the city solicitor.
The mayor added that if only one
were sent there was the danger in
these days of graft of fixing up a
deal. He did not want any such
suspicion to be aroused.
Aid.  McClymont did not  think any

Morrissey pointed out that while many
cities had exceedingly wide areas it
was only natural that there should
be a reduction in these outlying
areas, ln Prince Rupert, however,
the situation was different. There-
was only 2,400 acres in the town-
site. In the near future the G.T.P.
lots now held at a nominal assessment would come into an increased
value.

1 wish to point out that the adoption of the Assessment Roll of 1914
will not avoid the necessity of holding a revision court, at which all
questions of inequality and other
questions raisable before a revision
court can be heard, thus insuring
that no injustice is done to any ratepayer.
i cannot too strongly urge upon
the Council the advisability of taking the course of adopting last year's
roll.
I have the honor to be, your obedient   servant.
FRED PETERS,
City Solicitor
Some discussion followed the pres.
entation   of  the   report.
Aid. Morrissey said that as a member of the finance committee he was
prepared to endorse Aid. Montgomery's motion to adopt the assessment
roll  of last year.
Aid. Maitland felt that this year
the assessment might be lowered
considerably. He had not gone into
this report of the solicitor. He presumed, however, that if the assessment of last year was adopted the
rate of taxation should be much
lower.
Aid, McClymont, referring to his
minority report brought in at a
previous meeting, said that be understood that the Council could not
instruct the Assessor. The latter was
an independent official. He though!
that perhaps a recommendation
might be made to the Assessor. He
personally thought that n 10 per
cent, reduction should be made, ir
such would Interfere with the sale

to him that if he were to make a
new assessment he would materially
reduce the waterfrontage in Section
1. The mayor thought this might
work a serious trouble. Mr. Lorenzen
was willing to make an explanation
before the Council.
The city solicitor explained that
the Assessor told him that last year
in the making of the assessment he
had the result of a number of sales
throughout the city to be guided by.
This year he was not in a position io
get at the values as there were practically no sales being made. Ar.vone
selling now would only do it beeiuse
he had to sell.
On motion of Aid. Kerr it was decided to adopt the assessment of last
year.
Aid. Maitland seconded the motion.

The interesting experiment undertaken by the Hon. William R. Ross,
K.C., Minister of Lands, to determine by actual test the scope of the
dry-land areas of the province for
settlement purposes, to investigate
the possibilities under dry-farming
methods of the,, great empty places
given over to roaming herds us range
lands, has been shown to have been
amply justified in a report made by
Pfof. W. J. Elliott, advisor-in-
charge, on the work during the past
year, the first year of this important
work fraught with such consequence
to the settlement and development
of ii large portion of British Columbia,
At the present time the province
has vast areas of so-called "dry
land" and the experiments are designed to answer the question as to
whether those vast areas are only
good for grazing purposes, or as to
whether they may be used for settlement purposes, provided modern
methods of dry-farming are pursued. To demonstrate this, two
farms were established, and the results of the first year's crop have
been encouraging.
On the height of a rolling plateau
held in reserve as a pasture commonage in Nicola, about four miles
south from Quilchena; and in the
midst of the big interior plateau of
Central British Columbia, two farms
were established at comparatively
high elevations—the Quilchena farm
is 3,800 feet above the sea, where
the annual precipitation does not
reach a total of eleven inches. These
experimental dry-land farms established by tlle Hon. the Minister of
Lands, which are attracting wide attention, plainly indicate the possibilities of successful agriculture by
dry farming processes in the drier
parts of British Columbia, and will
doubtless tend toward great development; to the bringing of millions of
acres in the Dry Belt, now considered utilable only as range, under the
plough.
The two farms, each tilled by two
men skilled in dry-farming, are divided into numerous plats and the
experimental work is carried on in a
thorough manner, not only to show
the general possibilities of dry-
farming, but also to indicate the
crops which grow to the best advantage under prevalent conditions. The
grains and grasses grown during tbe
year Included many kinds, among
them those grown on the Great
Plains and other dry land sections
elsewhere, and success was generally
achieved.
In his report, W. J. Elliott, ad-
visor-in-charge, said: "In summing
up the information that may be
drawn from the first year's experimental work (1914) In the 105-Mile
District, we would anticipate that
the dry-land areas that the possible
of cultivation could be morei profitably used for settlement purposes
than for grazing, for the following
reasons:
(1) Seven varieties of wheat
have been successfully grown, ranging in yields from 20 to 30 2-3 bush
els per acre. These were all the
wheats tried and there was not a
failure  in  a  single  crop.
(2) A total of eight different varieties- of oats were successfully
grown. These ranged from 38 to
65 1-2 bushels per acre.
. (3) A bulk crop of 17 acres of
Newmarket oats were grown, averaging 3!) bushels per acre. There
was not a failure in a single oat tcrop
grown.
ill Alfalfa and the common ancl
mammoth red clovers have done
.well and have gone into winter in
very good condition, the alfalfa es-
peciullv so.
(5) With oats doing so well, and
alfalfa and other legumes, to say the
least, very promising, it would appear that the settlers feed problems

of our experimental work certainly
suggests that these areas may be
successfully used for settlement purposes. We must remember, of
course, that this is only the result
of one year's work, but we are certainly encouraged to continue tbe
investigations  already  begun."
At the Quilchena farm on the
Commonage in Nicola, grasshoppers
did much damage, the whole locality
suffering, and in consequence, the
final results there were not what was
hoped for. "However," the report
says, "there Is much that would lead
us to expect that the results on the
Commonage would have been, to say
the least, almost equal to those at
105-Mile House. The encouraging
features with regard to the Quilchena crop might be summed up as
follows:
"The moisture for the twelve
months prior to the harvesting of
this year's crop is practically as
much on the Commonage a^ at 105-
Mile House, the figures being: 105-
Mile House, 10.94 inches; Quilchena, 10,34 inches. Tlle daily average maximum and minimum temperature by months are very similar
indeed."      "''" "     *
Up to the middle of July tbe crops
actually grown on the Commonage
were, if anything, better than those
grown at 105-Mile House.
Alfalfa seemed to do as well at
Quilchena  as at  105-Mile House.
The various varieties of clovers
have also done well.
Potatoes and vegetables seem to
do as well at Quilchena as at 105-
Mile  House.
The portions of crops not destroyed by the grasshoppers produced perfectly matured grain.
We are, therefore, justified in assuming that practically as good
crops would have been grown on tho
Commonage us at 105-Mile House.
After Sareful'y considering the results obtained by the first year's
Work at 105-Mile House, and after
comparing with these tbe promise of
results In evidence on the Common
age before the devastation by the
grasshopper, we certainly feel that
the work of this year has been successful. Indeed, the foregoing results are ample justification tor the
action on the part of the Department
of Lands, In determining to actually
test these various dry-land areas
with a view to seeing as to whether
or not they are suitable for settlement purposes.

one would accuse the mayor of graft
Aid. Montgomery did not object to
the mayor judging himself and say
ing that he needed some one to go
with him to keep straight. He did
object to the mayor judging him
self (Aid. Montgomery). He said that
he had no definite reason given him
for the trip. He felt, however, that
the best man should go. He felt the
city solicitor had much greater prestige than either of those going. In
the interests of the city he felt that
even if the two decided to go, he
would move to have Mr. Peters also
go.
Aid. McClymont did not feel like
seconding a motion to make this a
trinity when he did not favor even
two going.
The mayor thought it would be
unnecessary expenditure for three
to  go.
Aid. Montgomery's motion was
not seconded.

Before leaving for the south for a
short time I purpose giving those
who wear spectacles or eyeglasses—
or those who may need them—a
specially close price on any and all
kinds of Glasses. For ten days only
—from January 11 to January 21.
I leave on January 22, and It will be
an advantage to all those who wear
glasses or may require them, to see
me at once, at my offices, Suite 1,
Exchange Block, or at McCutcheon's
Drug Store. This applies to all kinds
of frames and lenses and cases all
complete, the eyes carefully tested
and frames perfectly adjusted—and
guaranteed to be ln every way ac
curate. If Interested call and see
samples and get prices and arrange
appointments to have eyes carefully
examined. During these dates it will
pay you, if you are using glasses,
to get an extra pair, as the opportunity will not occur again. I fit all
kinds of Lanses—also Torlc or wide
angle Lenses—and Kryptoks- -giving you both distance and near
which have the advantage of being
invisible. Call early, so that in the
event of having to order I may get
them here before I leave on January 22. If you need anything don't
miss this chance for 10 days only.
