RUSSELL   SIMPSON.  Accompanying Mr. Simpson's letter  was a copy of the record, signed   by  Marshall Bray,  government agent of  Nanaimo,   with  a statement  that rental had been paid up to date.  Without noteworthy comment tlie  council ordered the letter received  and filed.  Mr. Russell Simpson, who had been  commissioned  to ascertain what amount the city was liable for the main  tenance of Mrs.  Pichelto,  during the  term she b  in jail,  also  wioie stating thai there was no law govern ing  the amount due  the province  from  a  city for  the keep of a prisoner     Nanaimo pays fifty cents a day.    In refr  crence  to  the children,  Jit.  Simpson,  adiised  the city  wr le Mr.   South, of  the Children's  Aid Society,' Vancouver, and arrange to'have the .'children  see why they should  pay for Adolph-  us' board for October ami November.  Mr.  O'Connell will send the communication to   Mrs.   Pichetto.  Included among the accounts was  one fiom Mrs. Dier, who kept the  two Pichetto children until they  were sent to Vancouver.

Alderman Bevendge enquired i  .f the city had t0 dress the young-  slcis, but the Council had had enough oi the family for one nignt.and  Uie bill was  ordered  paid.  A letter was read calling attention  of the council to the dangerous grade  of the sidewalk adjacent to Harry  Kay's and Siller's Stable. The letler  said that in frosty weather it was  extremely dangerous to pedestrians,  and asked counc i to have the sidewalk made of a more uniform grade.  The letter was signed byl-I- iKay,  VV. Siler, and several other residents  of that section. Mr. Kay, who was  present, evpiamed that the sidewalk  with its present grade was very dangerous m snowy weather and pointed  out how it could be remedied.  Aldeiniaii Beveridge moved, seconded by Aiuerman Nicholson, that the  matter be referred to the street committee to investigate and report at  the next meeting.     Alderman Bryden  enter thchome there. (As already sta-  objected to   this.   He thought       the  ted  in  these, columns,   the two children  are now, in charge oi  the  above  society). '  The  clerk, said  lie had   received     a.  letter from Majoi  Mullet", warden  of  the provincial jail, stating  that the  amount  usually  paid  for the keep of  a prisoner was lil,") monthly.  After some discussion the cleik was  teqiicstcd, on a motion bvAld. Beveridge, seconded by Aid. Malone, lo  wnte the Attorney-General's department and f-nd out exactly the cost  to the city for the woman's maintc-  naiue.  "Dear Mrs. Pichetto,���������Adolphus is  very well and often speaks . of you.  He is getting on nicely wilh his lessons and wishes to be remembered  to you," read the clerk. "We enclose you accouril for two months'  boaid SISTERS of St. "'Anne."  The  co n ii  was   pleased   to.      heair  that  the young  gentleman   was   such  a good      boy,  bulwho was  Adolphus,  anyhow,   and   what    had   the   city  lo  do  with  a bill   of  eight  dollars     for  his two months' board?  Mr.     T.  O'Connell,.'who presented  committee should be granted permission to tak*e what action they thought advisable. The motion was altered to that effect.  '! he clerk, on. a motion by Alderman  Beveridge, seconded by Aider an  Blair, was imtrcled to refund $5 col-.  ,reled for a trader's license from L.  Young, shoe-maker, of Fourth Avenue  as >n   Young is not a tiadei.  Permission was granted to Mr. yf.  Slewait  to level   the sidewalk at   the-  enlrancc  of h.p   new   office,   the  work  to  be done      to   the approv al  of  the  street  foreman.  ���������1.  E. Smith wrote asking the council  lo have  water  laid on in the city  hail,   as the   firemen   leqiured   it   for  washing the hose,  reel, elc.    He said  the  Waterworks  Company had  promised  to let  t he ci ly  have the  water  for this purpose free     of charge, ������������1  the only expense would be for piping  and fot pipping the main.     Aid. Bev-  ciidge niO'Vod,  seconded by  Aid.  Bryden, Ijiat the request be granted, and  a hose Kick  be purchased tor the fire  hall. Carried.  Aid.

The  interior  Adolphus   was   the son  of Mrs.    Pichetto,   and       was kept at St.- Anne's  Convent,  Duncans. , The bill was   for  two  mouths'   board,  to  Dec.  17,  and  had   liccn sent   with the letter  to him-.  '(Mr.  O'Connell.)  The  aldermen  soc-imd   lo think  -it,  had   enough   to .have, to   keep   the lady  and  her children  now,  but could not  of. the city hall should be painted. He  moved that the clerk call for. tenders  for the work. Aid. Malone thought  all funds available should be spent-on  the streets. The other aldermen seem  ed to. agree with Aid Mafone, and  all began to mentron places where  street improvements ��������� were needed, so  the  motion  was  not carried.

"I-.was1 a young man  and   an   enthusiastic -Whig,"  he  said,  "and     I  entered congress   quivering with��������� eagerness to serve  my part)' and to dis-  lingiash      myself.    I was  on   myfeet  shouting,   'Mr.  Speaker!' a dozen times  a day.    I opposed   eyen petty motions     made   by Ihe opposite party  and      bitterly   denounced  every  bill,  however  trivial,   for  which it .voted.

Yet  I knew     that -when  great  interests  clashed     he was  the "one-man whom  they feared:    "1 set myself to learn patience and  cooinese.

That is   a very  intcres'tihg areport  which says that  Alfonso X-liII.   contemplates  visiting the United States  in 1906.   He himself is said" to be ardently     in favor of taking the trip,  but  this is a matter  of considerable  moment to his country, and the final  decision  may  rest with   his  cabinet.  It is said  that the members of   that  body arc giving very serious consideration to the question,  and. that some  decision,   provisional   at  least,     will  be arrived at soon.  The UuitQd Stales can promise   Al-  ioiiso'.the  "lime of his  life,''  if    he  visits there.   Hawaii's king and    the  last emperor of I3rn7.il  were in      the  States more than once, but Europe's  [rulers have skipped  them so far.     although some heirs  lo the -throne,  as  the present Edward  VII.  ha-vc  been  here.   Edw'ard can tr.-u  Aipliouso how  well the     Americans   entertain  their  visitors. Ii Alphonso visits us he. will  see   a large   tract   of country       over  which the flag of  Spain  once floated.  At  many  localities  he would  encounter Spanish names      of towns,   rivers  and  mountains.    There and  elsewhere  in  the United States  he would get a  greeting which would makehis receptions in     the countries  of President  Loubet,     Edward   VII.,  William  IT.  and Frances  Joseph  appear  tame    in  comparison.  Young   Alfonso is  a man  of education,   ability,   originality and  democracy.       He   has     Illegalities  which win  and  hold  friends.    If     he  comes tothe United -States President  Roosevelt'     will   show  him   hunting  wh'ch  will   strike, him  as being     the  real Sm'ng,   and      no painted, padded  and      perfumed   imitation,   like  that  which     William  II.   furnished  him.���������  St.  Louis'Globe-Democrat.
