MJtW  Aldermen Could not Agree; on Celebraton Donation Question, and Mayor Nicholson  Votes in FaVor^of Gift  Pur- the fust time during bis term  of office ,as Mayor, last cvc-nin^g) -May-)'  or Nicholson was calk.d upon to casr  the deciding vote on a" Question  ���������which had arisen during "the, council  meeting. . ��������� . '  . A delegation consisting  of Messrs.  Jas. Dieemino  ami' H.  Sampson,   hud  been ,scnt lo  Uie council meeting;   by"  the Dominion  Day  celebration   coni-  mittee to rejoest the council to re-,  consider  their    decisio.ii of    a    week  ago regarding a   donation  by     that  body towards  llic spoils  to be   held  here on 1 omnium'  Kay.  At the previous meeting ihe council had decided not to gi.e any  money    to-   the  celebration committee,  and  that  body, meeting the n:xt .ev-ening,  decided to' send a delegation  i-o tlie council and, endqa-vor to-have them chants*  their, decision.     Accordingly last evening, Mr. R.  Si-mpson addressed, the  council, an d in-ft very clc||icnt manner,     reminded them of the   importance ,'.bf, July First as a national  -liofiday,.'and .the'fiVc-d' which   would  accrue \o   the    city from ~a celt������bra-l  tion in  the "way of- advertising, e1c.  On behalf of the committee he   was  wot as!ing for any large, sum���������all ne|  asked for was, say  $25.    lie did~nol|OWin liOCkisX, and .give it'.   I am   Iu-re  think this  would make- any  material  difference    in "ihe work contemplated  by the council  for  the city,  and   it  would help considerably  low-aids  the  celebration.'   After (submitting a Tew  -more   '. convincing    arguments -Mr.  Kimfson    concluded-      .Mr.   Dccn-.r'n ���������  was asked if he wished to    address-'  the council, but he replicxl  that    be[  thought    Mir.  Simpson had    covered  the ground pretty well.  The Mayor then called upon some  of the Aldermen, asking thorn for  their opinion on the matter.  Aid: Malohe stated that while he  would like very much to see a donation made to the committee, he,  could not. see how the council could  ido so. All the .money they could  possibly -getWould he needed upon  -th������ streets, and he, for one, could  not see how they could ian'ord jto/g/iYij  ���������any away. wP-ersohally he would lilcc  to see it done, buti for t-liic- good' of  the city :itv was, inipossiiblc to .be giv  in.^ money away which should he  spent on the streets. ��������� *v  Aid. Campbell was 'then called��������� upon. He, was of tho opinion--that the  city should    give something towards '  |you sat,in those m-iners' cars tli*.*  "same as "1 do'every day j and heard  borne oi the talk 'that 1 do, vou  might change- your mind on.' "that  point."1 ,  'lou'll find icickers1 any place you  go,'' replied" Akl.'Ca'mUnell.  "Vcs, that's right, ,|>ut whan taxes  are a,s' high as ihey urc now and we  pea-pose giving money away, Uiev  Cvill luck a whole lot .more on tme  cats," answered Aid.  Spence.  Aid. L-ren thought that thenejwoukj  noi, be much- Kicking, and, romar-.e-d  that4,erhaps Aid. Spence was sit.  ting in a Lubeial corner, wh-ich  would account lor the ' amount < ot  Kicking he heund. '  Aid. -Spcnce -again remonstrated,  and said il was past a joiOi when  theie was as much Kicking going t.n  .as  he had heard.  "Well,"' responded Aid. Campbell,  "I'd change my motion-and make a  new one to the eiiect that the council gi-e *$-l'5, and I'll ,pu't tip tJie other ten out of my own poe-.et. How  "will that suit you?'' T  '���������'Tliat vvou't suit" at all," replied  Aid. ''Spehoc-'" nSooiier" than, vote-  any mo'iiu-y away that docs not belong  to  us,  1   would go down in my  to  reptesent  the people and  do     the  best Lean for Idteni, and 1 do not  .think il would he -doing our best  to give their money away."-  " V.Now, look here," qiune from Aid.  Gamflbell ��������� liigain, 'if 1 give ten and  the city 'ifteen, it. will not amount:  to 2i cents to each ratepayer, and  j am sure they 'won't- kicic at that"  ''You. seem -to ��������� be p-rctty ainx-ious  for this celebration;" answered Aid.  Spence, "you must'intend running an  ice-cream stand or soin'ethtiig of the  kind;-don'tyou?'.'     ��������� [  ���������  "'.'No,;-' replied Alii. Can^bell, "1  dont, but . 1 do think the council  should help a'"'matter of this kind."  be.n notilied    by   the  city clerk     to  aavc   the    nutter    atteLnIbd to,   and  i-hey  in   turn had  vvrit-tc-.il lb Captain  I'ollister,   Victoria, the-ownur of the  property,    notifying    him    that     hc  vvouid liaiie  to  Jo.-*-'  into the   niattei  or, get  ik'w  tenontb.     As  yet     they  had   received no   reply   from   Captain  Collistef.     The  road  foreman    asked  what should  be  done  in  the  mutter.  Aid.  .Maloic thought.it best     that  the   matter Ja*   laid over'one     mose  week, and   see if  by that time  Captain   Colilistor 'did  not  make a move.  Accordingly this   was done.

It   was noted - that the ten     dajs  were about up, aud the Allay or slated  that   it  was   now  up  to  the   council  to decide whether or not they should  send   for     him to-     look into       the  water  question  with a   view  to     installing a   water  system   for electric  lights.       As  far  as claims on     Me-  Liod  crc-i.   were  concerned,   the city  Clerk   was   in possession of a   letter  fioiuMr.      Hray,     government agent  and  gold  commissioner,   to  the ef.ect  that -no claims ou    this  creek     were  registered in his ollice, and therefore'  the water is   free.  'lhe question of the possibility of  accurately measuring the Water w.is  then -hi' oi light up by Aid. Liren. He  thought: this, would 1-e impossible * at  tin's time of the year, as it*''would  be. at least. twV and a-half months  yet before extreme1 low water. In  any cent ho did 'hot. think thero  would be sufficient to run a plant.  Aid. .Spence was also of the same  opi'ii-ic-n, aiicl; thought- it would-be a  waste of money to investigate the  matter. It would cost the city $2"*.  tiot- day lo    have,   Col. Tracey  here,  Last evening ut 10.

This is Miss  Dahl's second appearance before a  \'ic-toria audience, and it certainly  speaks wyll for her al-jlit-ies when it.  is a fact that the seats for tor  nigJit's concert were all sold yesterday morning, and althougli inanv  iiihI"io secure seats during yesterday and today, it was impossible  to do so. It is the unanimous opinion of those who have heard Miss  Ikihl that she is one of ihe great-,  est singers who has ever vjsited  Vancouver Island.  Tic-luUis for 'Jhursd.-iy cvenin/fs concert arc now on .sale at Mr. 13. For-  cimmei 's store, and if reserved seats  aie wanted, it would l>e 'well (o ap-  f J v at once.
