 VOL.**  May  22,  lDOfi  PRICE FIVE CENTS  Last evening before Justice ol lhc  Peace Urtnthcs-on, Wm.  Noyc  was fined  $10  ami    costal  for  being     drunk  and disorderly, on Sunday last.  The  costs  also included   some hxo-  - hen  furniture  which i\lr.  Noyc     had  been responsible for     while  in durance vile at the city jail.    It    appears  that he ili<l not    like thc appearance    of some ol    the furniture,  crockery, etc.,  which  was  for the use  of the prisoners, anil attempted    lo  hurl same through thc window. Tho  case  was heard  in  tlic  lower   story  of tho city hall while thc city coun-  cil<4 were in session.    'After .the meeting  of the council,   L.  Pollcml  was  brought before Justice Matlieson ami  Mayor - Nicholson en  a charge of fir  i������g a gun within the city, limits.  Mr., Russell  Simpson * a������i*earcd ' foi  the defence, ' and on   ' hchalf of his  client, pleaded guilty  to the charge  ' He asked    Iho     court, however,    in  new of     the fact  that thc prisorici  had  pleaded guilty, and had not al  tempted   to involve  the 'city  or an  one .else  in expense in  an     at tempi  to pro.e the charge','   lo  talc  a len-.  ' fient view of ' the case,  and  impos,  as light a'line as'possible. Mr. Si'mip  son     reminded   thc   court' lh.it  this  wasv a case for a nominal fine,     as  would be,   for instance,  the case    in  other cities wheie a bicycle   by-law  prevailed.     It  was possible,  accord  Sng to law,' to fine- a man in   some  cities fifty dollars for  infraction   of  such, a by-law,   ..but  it  was  usually  the  custom  to" impose  a "line   of   a  dollar, or  two and costs. lie would  therefore, ask  the court to in..pose a  notijoal  fine.    >  After consulting with-Mayor Nich  bison Justice Matlieson "ai-hoimccd'  that the QUirt had once ljefore fin  ed a man charged with the _ samr  pffence the sum .of ten'dollars and  costs,- and this ruling would prevail  in tha present case. Therefore "thc  prisoner would have to pay twelve  dollars.  The money was  paid and  the prisoner dismissed.  HI MT HI-  HI  f  ��������� A  real    up-to-date. C.   P.

Perkins, of Vancouver  who is engaged on thc installatior  01 an electric jiower plant for th:  Fraser River Sawmills Company, r  in the city today. Mr. Perkins ha'  come to Ladysinith with the inlen  ���������tion of gathering data regarding a  steam plant, for this city, and if, ai  .-o.no future time the Corporation  S'.ioulil decide to install a .*-t,eum el-  ejtrica 1 plant for ligjhtingt purposes,  he will il:e in a position to ,sulitnit  a  tender for his company.  Jn a conversation with the Lcdgti  today, Mr. Perkins stated tliat h.  would guarantee to install o 1,000-  light plant in Ladysmith for $20,-  000.. He estimates that-this num-  (^r of lights would lie sutlicie.(t fo.  a town twice the size of Lad\-  stuith.  "of course," said Mr. Peri'dns,  the abo.e estimate is only guess  wur.i so far, but it would .not ex  ceod that amount for installation,  is for running expenses, the difference between a water powiL-r' plant  t.nd a steam plant would , lie vcr,  sn.all. One man .should handle ' ah  the won*: around the-powerhouse -o  a steam concern, and 1 do not  think you could get along with lest,  itian one. man at a water  plant. y'  "We would, 'continued' Mr. Per-  >.mis, "be willing to install a plant  in the city with the idea that th.  corporation could, if they desired at  some future time, buy it up. Wc  would ha-e some of the stock subscribed for in the city, provided  there are citizens willing to go unto'  the proposition. However, this is  ail for future- con.sideration,-as I- im-  deistand it is the intention to install a water-power plant if pt^ssi-  ble. Provided that sufficient water  is not found, I will ,be in a p.osition  fiom. the facts that I have gathered  in my v������sit here today, and from m*  trip here last summer, when I installed tlie new electric plant at  Crofton, to -hake an offer to the  rity which I Itiiiik would be satisfactory to the ratepayers."  ��������� Yesterday    Mr.    .1.

He could not soe tiny  clause in tho by-law whereby a  man could lie made pay lus sliaii-.  who though, not adjacent to a sower'constructed, would iievijitittdfiss be1  benefitted there-by. Jlc was ol lhe  opinion  that  a   sewer   rental    would  4 1 *  furnish- al) the funds noct-ssary for  to,;construct a sewerage system. The  proposed new by-law was m his op-  inion nw������y* behind the times'. fie  therefore moved an amendment, that  this   by-law   be   rend    this   day,    six  nionths.

His plan, was for the owners or  pioperty to have ' linished paying  their improvement in say ten or  fifteen years, but the idea of Aid.  Hodgson'*, was an everlasting- affair, and a person would go on  paying leittal lorever.  Alii. Hodgson replying to ' i\ld.  llieJc-stated that lie did not say'he  would raise money on the geneia)  ifvenuo* of the city but on the  sewer rentals which tho Municipal  Clauses Act gave them power * to  levy'.  Aid. Xew ton said he had listened  with a great deal of interest to tho  discussion. ' The majority of tho  Aldermen know t'hat the revenue  mg everyone, the same opportunity,  rentals. Tlie reason why the ., bylaw was brought in was to(stop all  these communications* that came in  eiery council night in reference to  new drains, gnd. I hoy were certainly  needed. Theyproposed Improvement  bylaw was* a step in the right dir-  t'Ction and he saw no reason for a  siv months hoist. All the details  could lie discussed and thiashed out  in comin.ttce anil hi* saw no reason ior delay at this stage of the  proceedings.  The motion of Aid.
