Aid Malonc asked tho Mayor if the  qiueslion of appointing an alderman  io the i nsil'ion on the board vacated  by Mr. S. \'\ Mcintosh .had received  serious consideration. He thought  it would le well to have a full .board  if possible. It was decided to take  no action in this lcspcct until next  meeting night.  The street committee being aslol  for a report on their invrstlgjaliuirt  of the alleged nuisance, caused by the  .steps at Vc fiont of Christie's  lyiiikling. Alderman Uien staled that  the cominitteo had loo'ed into the  matter, and |were ol the opinion that  the stops, although on the street,  were not doing any "jarin. Mir. Christie was away, and until he returned, the committee <id not adi'ise any  action. At - any rate the steps  might, in their judgment, , remain  where they were without being any  nuisance  Aid.

In connection   with  this subject,    a Why   should   Canada  be   behind   hand  plan  for government life  insurance  is in this great work?      We  know  of no  also of 'interest,      Following this cir- reason,   but  on  the  contrary,   believe  cular letter from   thc Nanaimo union that  the  conditions  in. 'this couniry  is appended a plan for  lii'o insurance at   the    present    time  arc especially  that has  also  its good   features.

The circular  letter reads:  "Perhaps the most important evidence of'applied Christianity in the  twentieth century is a constantly increasing desire on the part of the  most humane and thoughtful persons  to  remove from  the midst of  civiliz-  wliich would be necessary to provide  an ample old age pension fund1, while  the unusually prosperous condition of  the people generally throughout tlt-.^  Dominion would make the calls on  such a fund a great, denl fewer than  during times of industrial' -depression,  in fact, it is during such times as  we are now     experiencing   in Canada  ed  communities  the sufTering  of pov- that   the  establishment  of   n  pension  erty,     especially   among     sick      and for  aged      workmen   would   be   easy;  aged,   as   expressed  in   the  effort    to and  we are sure all   will  agree  there  remove      the'responsibility for  doing js no more      worthy cause to    which  this   from   the  more  or   less  doubtful solne at ienst  Df .tho  surplus revenue  /ield  of  dependence upon personal be- could  be  appropriated.
