The discussion was simply  ovei the advisability of granting a  request of Mr. II. MLicklin, on behalf of Messrs. Simon Leiser & Co.,  asking peimission to run wires from  -a point situated near the shingle  mill to tlicii store for the purpose  of .ifioiding them electric lights. The  -letter also slated that the store  would erect a street light on thc  corner of "the 'Esplanade and Gat-  ade streets foi the convenience of  the public, piovidcd permission - is  gianted by the council to string the  wucs.- '  \Unle the majority oi-the council  seemed of the opinion that tins'  would be veiy nice, still it was  thought that it would certainly be  necessary to insert certain conditions  in .the peimit to the effect that the  same be good only until such time  as-a system is installed by either  the city or a private company. Another condition which was thought  advisable was to the effect that Si-  'inou Leisei- & Co., should take all  responsibility of accidents in case  thc wire*- bioke at any time and  caused damage. It was finally decided to lay-thc matter over one week)  the street committee in the mean.  time tojiiquire into the matter and  asceitaiiiij/just-iwhat  is required.  Mayor Nicholson stated that he  believed if one request of this kind  was granted, there would shortly be  seveial -moie, and he advised the  council to take time and think the  matter ovei and grant the permission .under certain conditions if grant  ed at all. ' ������������������ !  -** "      i  The only' other communication leceived, was a request from Mr. T.  O'Connell, asking permission for a.  week's holiday. Permission granted^  Amongst the accounts received was  one from Mi. i<\ VV. Greaves; for  1*5.10, which would pay for one-luff  of the lencc on the upper side til  the council chamber. This fence had  been built by Ml. Greaves, and afterwards, when the council hall was  elected, it had served as the upper  porlion ot the fence for the city lot.  Some ot tiie aldermen wanted to  know why they should pay for a  lencc which they never ordered built,  ifnd which had been m existence before thc city hall was built at all-  11 was explained to therm that according to law, the bill would have  to be paid, as in the case wheie  one'fence served two different nro-  pcities, it was necessary for, each  owner, to pay one-half of the cost  of construction.  [   The bill will be paid.  The work of thc stumping maohine  was next brought up for a long discussion. It i had been put in position for work yesterday .itetnoon.  and had done very good work since  that time. However, it was costing more than had at first been ?n-  ticipated, and some of the"aldeimcn  thought this matter should be investigated. For instance, ��������� ���������������������������- ' xt  fust been stated that the machine  could be secured for $20 pei day,  vvith tluee men furnished. Now, however, if was ?30 per day, with five  men furnished. Besides this, the  city is obliged to pay six' dollars ,a  day for a man and team, winch ,  they had not bargained for. The total expense of the machine and Tien  with  blasting powder amount to $50  ���������Avp nod  Aid. Malone, in speaking of the  matter, thought that the council  should arrange some more definite  field for the machine to work on. It  would not' take long to clear thiid ,  avenue at .the rate the, machine had  started in, and he thought othei  streets should be picked out while  the money  lasted.  Aid. Patterson was on his feet in  an instant, with thc suggestion that  the machine woik right on through  to the "East ward. It was badly  needed there, and he would like lo  see it come. Only $15 had been,  spent on Mcthucn and White streets  this year, 'while much had been spent  where the machine is now working,  in the vicinity of the school.      ���������<  Aid. Malone explained that most  of the previous work done on the  school grounds had been,done with*  money which had been left over from"  the new -school appropriation, of last  year, and, veiy little city money had  been expended.  Mayor Nicholson confirmed this explanation.  Streel Foi email Callander explained. I o the council that the machine  could*woik its way down Third avenue, and as it came to thc cross,  streets, could stretch up or down  these one block each way, without  moving Hie machine itself, and draw  the stumps with its cable, lt was  decided that (he council would go  over the giound in a body after the  meeting, and see just what would be  best lo be done, nnd accordingly  they visited the upper section of the  town last evening. They will again  inspect the work on Wednesday evening, and further plans will be laid  out,  Those present at the meeting   last  evening  were' Mayor Nicholson,   Aid-,  ermen Campbell,    Urett,     Patterson,  and Malone.  works comprise "The Remarkable  History of the Hudson's Bay Company,' 'The History af Winnipeg,'  which latter appeared last year, and  this year his work in 'Mackenzie,  Selkirk and Simpson,' appearing, as  one of 'The Makers of Canada' series was by the Loudon 'Times' and  'Spectator' very favorably.'reviewed,  and is regarded as his best work."  ���������'.!���������  in that case.wotfld consider//rates ,paii|)|communication _    from     Mr  from  Vancouver   to  Nanaimo .is  plicable to ourselves.  We do not feel that it is necessary  to our case to quote the different  charges for commodities imported as  you are yourself well posted on .these  things.  We would like to point out, however, that according to present  freight rates prevailing a general  storekeeper at Ladysjmith would  have to pay freight from Victoria 'at  the rate of  $4 to  $t.50 per ton on  where she tied up. . In coming up  couver today, and would accompany from the wharf where the passengers  a delegation on' any date 'which j were landed,' one of Mr. .Macklm's  might, be fixed.

The  Joan ties up at the [Transfer wharf,  She landed . her passengers at this  wharf, and afterwards proceeded to  the    Dominion     government    wharf,  Smitlf before the foot could be released:'  of his While the girl was not hurt severely, still, it would be a very easy  matter for a man to break his leg  in the same place, and the wharf,  was certainly no place to land ladies and  children.        .

She is  known to have had three children,  one of whom, a daughter,, is married, but Mr. Dennis does not know  her present name or address..'  . Mr. Dennis came west in 1854 with  his father's family in a wagon train  and he tells an interesting story of  a massacre which occurred in Boise  Valley in Idaho. The Noble train,  composed of M5 persons, was about  three miles ahead of the Ward  train, in-which, there'were-135 people.

The  Indians had taken away everything  they could carry and had burned and  destroyed the rest.  Mr. Dennis' family settled at The  Dalles, but in 1SG2 moved to Col-  ville, Stevens county, then a hamlet  of a few persons. They passed  through Spokane, which was then  but rock and sagebrush, not a house  having been erected here at that  time. The elder Dennis died in.Col-  viile in lSUG, and the son returned  to the east and settled in Hannibal,  Mo., where he has since resided.  While in the west Mr. Dennis participated in the great Indian .wars  of 1S55-6, including the "Cayuse  war," when the 'Nez Perce Indians  took the part .of the whites.
