COMMISSION IS  IN  SESSION  ation  of   candidates   for  aldermen  and mayors.   Dr. A. J. Holmes advocated   municipal   ownership   of  telephones.   Alderman   D.'S.  Curtis 'believed-in  the, devolution  of  civic executive business to a commission and held an opposite view'  to 'the Trades and Labor Counc.I  \ members in supporting the exemp-  tiam from taxieis of ailchurch edu -  rational and ^philanthropical lnBU-  tu'tions.   Acting   Mayor   Gray   expressed   strong-   viewB   as   to   tnir  testing of the city milk supply and  the difficulty'of getting convictions  for violation of the provincial   laws.  Dealing with the subject of the  property qualification for aldermen  and mayor, -Mr. David Cameron re.y  feared to the Glasgow system ol  the council electing their own mayor or the provost and of the aldermen, ox baillies,,'requiring no prop  erty qualification.  Mr. Walter Dodd as alderman  and memiber of tihe Tradets and L-x-  bor Council, wished to see the referendum applied to municipal, legislation. His idea ,was that anyuu'e  having proposals'as to certain muh  icipal legislation,,. a petitionL cohlcr  be signed, taken U[P; by-the council  and submitted'to the.electors 10'be,  voted upon. '.'       "    '     ���������' '  Replying to the chairman, Ali-V  ,!j..u saiu th-dJc if. the principles 0)  the initiative and referendum y/evb  thus extended.it would greatly eon-  dace no better municipal- government.        ���������   ' ''���������.;% ' ;  The chairman referred to the re-  - 1 * ���������   1  commendations made as to the fiscal year 01 municipalities ending  October 31 and elections being held  in December.   '  "What do you think of that proposal?" asked the chairman^  ; Mr. Dodd thought the proposition  a very good one and believed that  the Trades and Labor-Council as a  body were in favor of it. He was  also of opinion thplt the licensing  commissioners and police should be  under the direct control of thepeo  pie.  Mr. R. A. Sl'oney, president of Inc  Trades and Labor Council, speaking on .the exemption form taxation  of church and kindred property, did  not  think it 'proper that such institutions as  Y.M.C.A.'s  shduld  be  so   exempted,   being   practically in  competition  with   other  clubs   not"  bo   , iavoircd.   ([Representing     The1  ���������Trades and Labor Council ihe would  like  to   see the  municipal   act  so  amended as to exciu'be the exemption of religious institutions.  Mr. McLean: "That exemption is  a special privilege which e o.r.y  be ialterde by a bylaw put before  the people."   '  Replying   to   the   chairman   Mr.  Stoney stated that the Trades and.-  Labor'Council were entirely, oppos  ed to any exemption whatever. |   ���������  ..'Mr.-A.-Hogg,  member'   of,   the'  Trades   and   Labor   Council,   considered that the property qualification    for   mayor   and   alderman,  worked   a   hardship  on' men  who  would   b'e-otherwise, qualified    to  serve in these capacities.   The $500  qualification  he 'thought prohibit -  -ive  in    a   large numiber  of cases.  Speaking for his  council he  sug  gested  that   a   petition signed  by  iifty   voters   should   be   sufficienc  qualification.  Mn David Cameron wished to  emphasize 'objections to the property qualification' for-' aldermen.  rie L-eierred 'to the system'in Glasgow oa "the council electing their  own provost or mayor and that  no -property qualification was -required for the election of bailies ov  alderman. To be a municipal.vot-  er qualified anyone for being a  candidate for alderman. In Glasgow the mayor and aldermen were  elected for three years.      _,      !  Mr. McLean : "Then there is -timd  given for aldermen'to get thorough  ly acquainted with civic (problems.  Do you think as a member of the  Trades and La'bor Council, that it,  would be advisable tq prolong tlie  term of service?'?  Mr. Cameron thought it would,  as long as they bad the right of  -recall.  Mr. A. E. Bull: "Do you vflot  think that the right of recall would  interfert with a man's independence? It would -also be very easy  to get ten per cent of voters so  sign   a   petition asking for recall.1'  Dr. A J. Holmes advocated the  ' ������ - l. > . uuMou-ship of telephones.  He thought that power should * be  given Co municipalities to enter into- the telephone business, but riot,  in 'opposition to vested ������������������interests.'  He did not refer to any particular  company, but thought that the city  should have the power to take over any telephone company, .subject  to arbitration.    .  Mr. A. E. Bull;   "That is to force'-  the companies "to sell to municipalities?"   .  Dr., Holmes; "Yes, that's what it?  :\  practically comes "to." He thought  that, municipalities should have  that privilege, always subject to  arbitration. ������His main jpoint was'  that it wa's unwise! to have a dual  system. ..       '  Dr. Holmes also suggested that  some provision might be made-, for  the better usefulness of the Board  of Trade in' its relations with tne  municipal council. / He thought  :hose relations' cou'id. be improved  in the matter of the council consulting the Board of Trade. There  were certain subjects that came colore the council that' might very  well' be advised upon in consultation with the Board of Trade or  any other (public body of the kind.  Mi*. H.- .A. McLean; "I suppose  you mean that falong some lines of  commercial policy, s>uch as the harbor scheme 'tne -Board of-Trade  might be- consulted?"  Dr. Holmes; "Yes, that is one  instance." ,       '  ., Mr. McLean ; "As a matter of fact  the councils always pay-respect to  theopinions of the Board, qf  Trade  and I cannot very well see how the  connection could be made closer."'  orphanages and the like.  Acting-Mayor Gray' Bpoke in favor od the commission form of go\ -  urnment, and that provision should  be made for recall.. As regards the  ,vard   system,  he  did not see any  .vrlvaintago in going'' back to it us  i'ar as New 'Westminster was concerned.   Referring to the  present  system   of' appointing   police   and  license commissioners ���������he  did not  think it was working any hardship  and he had not heard of any complaints.  Mr. Gray was in favor of tne  testing of all milk supplied to cne  city, 'and the enforcement- of provincial laws as to the conviction.  of offenders. :    1  The acting-mayor also expressed  his views that there should .^fbe  some method by which the government should stand behind the city's  bonds. He.considered that iMhere  were' difficulty "in dbtaihing:,-ch.eap  .money. '    - '.' '  '- Alderman D. S.'Curtis expressed  his approval of the commission form  ,of ' municipal government, lie  thought it advisable that in a pro ���������'  gressive city like New Westminscei,  where a large amount of money wa3  being spent in improvements and  development work, there should be  a commission to attend to executive  business. It was quite impossible,  he considered, for members to give'  adequate attention to the large and  increasing duties'<>t the city council.  They had their own business to at^  tend to, and as it was, many of them  had to considerably neglect .their  own business and private interests.   \  With regard to the ward system  ' Mr. Curtis staitedith'at hei had been  one of the prime movers in abolish  ing it in New Westminster.  Chairm-am; "Do you' think the  present system satisfactory?"  Aid. Curtis; "Yes, so 'far as it  goes." He thought' that a commission of,three members to deal  executive jmaitteps qhjoulid ihe elected by the people, one "to retiit  each year.  Mr. H. -A. McLean; "To devote  their whole time to the city."  Aid. Curtis; "Yes. The commis  sion also should be held directly  responsible to the people. It would  give more continuity of service, a-s  ii' three good business men were  elected they could be better enabled to keep ]n touch with the  civic matters in progress.

The cultivation for scientific uses  of certain species of spiders, solely  for the fine threads they weave, has  an Important bearing upon astronomy.  No substitute for the spider's thread  hsa yet been found for bisecting the  screw of the micrometer used for  determining the positions and motions  of the stars. Not only because of  the remarkable fineness of the  threads are they valuable but because  of their durable qualities. The threads  of,certain spiders raised for astronomical purposes .withstand changes In  temperature, so that often In measuring sun spots they are uninjured  when the heat is so great that the  lenses of the micrometer eyepieces are  cracked. These spider lines are only  one fifth to one-seventh of ,a thousandth of an inch in diameter, compared with which the threads of the  ellkworjn are large and clumsy.  To Get the Best Brn:n Work (lie Blood  must be Maintained in Healthy  Condition.  As   all   brain   action   Is   dependent  upon  the blood ��������� that is the heart  action ���������.we frequently look for an  explantion of unhealthy mental  conditions in the state of the blood.'   Unusually low blood pressure is generally associated with the mental states  characterising   brain-fag,   neurasthenia, etc."; "anaemia or poorness of the  blood quality will produce also mental  incapacity and dulness���������a man whose  blood is not healthy cannot be alert  and decisive.    Bad food combinations  (such as' cheese and tea together) and  ignorant  eating  are   responsible   for  much more than  indigestion,  serious  as that'is  in  itself.    It- is  by  such  mistakes  that the, blood  is  rendered  less valuable to all the. organs of the  body, including,'of course, the brain.  The powers  of memory  are directly  influenced by biliousness and an over-  acid   condition  of  the   blood.    Again  vigorous brain action depends1 largely,  upon the regular and speedy, elimination   of ^-the , waste   products   of   the  body; if/these do not get out by way  of 'the bowels  and' kidneys  they  are  taken into the blood, and this," fouled  as it, is, is yet sent by. the wonderful  pumping' mecnanism of the'heart to  the'-   remotest    corner   of   body, i and  brain.    Simple food, plenty of water,  to drink between meals, fresh air by  night (and ,day,  regular'exercise and  deep breathinsg will keep the blood at  its best, and,ithat in Its; turn .will do  good work fo^ the brain.'        . ,    i , l r  Hgquiurgical investisation.' 1  suTtecTin Tne'perfection or a~h"ev  metal-alloy.

"Why," replied Jennings, 'that is  simple enough. If I pick one blade of  grass and hold it up to the batter,  that means he is to make a single,  two blades mean a two-base hit, three  blades a three-bagger and four blades  a home run."  "But," persisted the fan, "what does  it mean when you throw both hands  in the air and yell:  'E-e-yan!'?"  "Why," replied Jennings, "that  means' we are in a tight place and  the barter is to use Vs own judgment  as to the kind of a hit he will select."  l'ASKS  C0CE.'..ntE   OF WINNING  Yankee sporL.ig writers are just as  certain that their Athletes will win  at the Olympic games, to be held next  summci', as their political writers  were sure a few mouths ago that reciprocity would win in Canada. In  prophesying, two courses offer safety  One is to prophesy after the facts by  th������ good _pjd   m^thojl.. q������ saying.   "I  .The Latest Jn Guns"  During 'the   recentu'extehded   manoeuvres  of the   German   army "there"  were  many  night  attacks,  in .whichj  use was maxie of the newly-introduced  llluminating< 'pistols.     According   to  the new regulations, these are- to be  employed (wherever the configuration  of the land makes their use preferable'  to   that  of .the- ordinary^ searchlight..  The machinery necessary for the use'  of  the  latter  device.' is   very  incori-/  venient/'and especially in rolling-and1,  otherwise difficult country; where .thev  main manoeuvres take place, it can';  not be used to advantage.    The illuminating'.pistols have not this" disadvantage, as they are easily transported.    Further, the searchlight is useless-in valleys and deep-lying plains,  as  their  rays  shoot over   these  and  leave them apparently in still deeper  shadow. For this reason, such valleys  serve   as   excellent   covers   at" night  against   the   searchlights.    The   illuminating :pistols have done away'with'  this advantage of shelter) as the *cart-,  ridges which they throw light,up the  deepest 4Qd  darkest gulleys. ��������� There  are two different sorts of cartridges,  producing respectively white and red  light. The' white ones serve exclusively, for illuminating  the  country,.the  red ones for signalling purposes; between widely separated commands- or'  divisions,;even where the distance between   them  is   several   miles.     The  illuminating cartridges develop a,light  that mak^s everything within 650 feet  visible, and lasts eight to ten seconds.  Edison's First Indention  The story of Mr. Edison's first invention will bear retelling. One day,  when he was a small boy of five, his  parents,missed him, and after a long  search his elder sister discovered him  in the > fowl-house, where he sand he  intended to'"remain three weeks. His  clothes tyere in a terrible condition,  being smothered with crushed eggs.  "What were you doing that for, 7\Dm?"  asked his sister in alarm. "Well, I  thought if the bens could hatch eggs  by sitting on them I could," was the  reply of the youthful genius.  Mr. Edison lias often been credited  with inventing things which even for  him would have been remarkable.  Some time ago, an American paper  stated that he had invented a wonderful shirt which would last a man  for twelve months without requiring  to be washed. This shirt, it was  stated, was made of 365 layers of  material, the composition of which no  one knew but the inventor, and all the  wearer had to do to restore it to its  original spotlessness was to tear off  one of the layers, when he'would hawe  practically a new shirt. This announcement was reprinted in various  other papers; with the result that Mr.  Edison receiver" " of orders for  the mystery --  OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOC|  CITY DAIRYING  Dairymen Who Carry On TbeJr l|  .  ness in a Scientific Way  ' Always Succeed.
