Paris, Aug.. 6.���������The fate' of the  famous Eiffel Tower trembles in the  balance. It bos shortly become llie  property of the city, nnd the municipal council, is divided -between the  policy of (1) puiling.it down, .(2)  keeping tt for scientific purposes and.  (3) 'leasing. it to the company  which has exploited it since 1B99.  The receipts derived by the Company from visitors to the tower  were ������1,300,000 during the exposl  tion of 1889, but of recent years  thev have been about SfiO.OOO anmm-  lv, except in 1900 wten the exposition sent   it up to ������400,000.  _ *am^vm!m  THE LADYSMITH DAILY LEDGER  THE DAILY LEDGER  except Sunday  Publish** every   day  ���������BY���������  THE DAILY LEDGER COMPANY.  OFFICE AT LADYSMITH.  SUBSCRIPTION. ,  One Year (In advance) $5.00  One Month  ��������� ... _  SO cents  WEDNESDAY,  Aug. 8,  190G  ELECTRIC LIGHTS.  On Saturday next   tlie question   of  whether or not Ladysmith will have  electric light during the comins; wfiler will he    settled   at the    polling  booths.    Whether it will be for    or-  against    lights   depends    much   lpon  the amount of  I bought given to the  subject by those voting.   At present,  taxes in    Ladysmith    rue high,   and  upon merely reading  the proposed bylaw as published,    and    fining    llie  matter no further thought, no   ratepayer is  to    be    blamed   for   voting  against the proposal.     On  the other  hand, if a man investigates tho   matter at all with  a view to ascertaining whether    or not it would be   a  paying  proposition,   the chances   arc  that this man will  vote    for electric  lights.in  Ladysmith.  Men who    have visited  Ladysmith'  with  a  view    to obtaining a     franchise    if    possible"   to install lights,  state  that the system  should  be   a  paying proposition    from  the   start,  and  the longer it is run, the better,  it should    pay.'      That is to say, a  comparatively large number of lights  ' can be.operated just as cheaply as a  small    number,    and,   of course,  thc  more residents    who take lights,    a.s  .would    he  thc  ,-casc every year; thc  larger the profits of the concern. According to the by-law,  it would only  be necessary to  raise  in the   neighborhood of($2,483.33 to pay both tbe  interest oon the borrowed money, nnd  provide a substantial  sinking fund of  $733.33 "yearly.     The cosL of operating a  system  run  by  water   power,  is small.       If    the    revenue derived  from the plant in  a city the size of  Ladysmith did not exceed the above  sums, together with the cost of running same,  whatever it may be, and  allowing a substantial estimate, then  ' electric light systefcis should not pay  in any city.    'Not only should it pay  expenses, -but should furnish tbe city  with    street  lighting   free of    cost,  without    the    imposition   of heavier  .taxes as' would -be the case were   a  ' private    company    to  put  in  lights  and the city    he obliged to pay for  same by the year.

The object of each speaker seemed to bo  not the good to the country that  had resulted from his efforts in passing legislation, but, by comparison,  to show that hc was not as great  a  rascal as the other fellow.  Tbe discussion throughout the meet  ing was a constant reminder to. the  audience that at least two of '������������������lie  gentlemen nnd deyotcd the greater  part, of their- time into the study of  'ginft, ' Public questions were lightly touched on, and back the speakers  came' to " 'the rascality of the other,  fellow.

If, after associating in the local and federal bouses with the best, minds., in  the province nnd Dominion, they have  not been successful in. learning 1o  know and appreciate the dilTcretice  between a gentlemen and a cad, the  people would be unwise, to again return them to positions in which they  have not been useful to the' country  and have failed to improve themselves.  high'.   !

Thirteen dollars in fines  and four dollars in costs being collected.  The reports were received and filed.  Chairman Plant a brought up the  question of the advisability of having a by-law passed, dealing with  tbe weighting of horses wliile standing on t.hc public streets. The  number of automobiles now running about, said tbe speaker make  it wry dangerous for a horse to be  left standing anywhere unless it is  iu some manner fastened. It would  be au easy matter for each driver  to carry a weight, and whenever he  a nppcri, cast it to the ground and  fasten it to Ihe . bridle bit of the  horse. This would prevent it from  mining away, and if something of  this kind rs not done, said the chairman, some of these days sve will bo  having a fatal accident.  Commissioner Hoult thought that  while a by-law was being drawn  up relating to Hio question raised  by the chairman. It would be as well  to insert a clause regulating ihe speed  of automobiles while rutui-ing in the  city  limits.  Commissioner Hoult moved, second  ed by Commissioner Dick that the!  Ooiifncil be asked to pass a by-law,  dealing' wills tho quest ion of'weight-.  ijiig- horses, and also regulating the  speed of automobiles.  t-  IS. V ,  u  Ii; O  July  10 to 15.

Although it has been known ior a  number of yeais that fire-killed timber, has a considerable value in iail-  lond and mining operations in Colo-  lado, it has been brought out only  recently by the foicst seivice that a  wide number of uses aie open fortius timbei, and lb.it in certain respects it has actual advantages over t  gicen wood. I  These facts aie deducted from a  study ol conditions on the Pike's  Peak forest reserve, where the ravag '  e������- ol fire have been paiticularly wide-  spicad and destructive. In many instances Ihe burned-Umber is the only  kind available at a particular point,  foi example in proximity to a mine  oi a spur of railroad,-so for tinkers)  and tics the dead material has been  used for many years���������fifteen years at  Palmer lake, seven years at Florissant for railroad ties, and longer  than this for mine timbers. Tlnee  years ago it was first used-for box  boards and has proved excellent. Tn  Way, 1905,, there was a sale for telephone poles. .  The species used are red fir, yellow pine, lodgcpole pine, limber pine,  range pine, pinon, Engelmann spiucc,  anil blue spruce Oi these, the pmo-i  Led fu, and Engelmann spiuce Tarnish the bulk of the material. Time  elapsed since binning seems to make  no great dilicrence in the value of the  wood, except that when serious check*  ing results ii, loses its value for box  purposes The limber used has been  burned all Uu* vay Irom three to  fifty-five veais  The amount of    this timber which  has been ir.ed    is  veiy  considerable  'ihei^ '">s been one  sale from theie-  s(.]\l  i       So-.      boa ids and one foi  Fletcher lcturneil itpl<mlu , l   <   Uie thiee   main  r. i - i '     foi   mine     tim  bers, !."!'. i i 'irewood.  m hauiis  Of (Ml  "Nuttin',  muin,"    icplied     Flayed  Franklin.
