With two members absent it  is impossible to form a quorum. 'The  business that would have come up  for discussion last evening had there  Ijcrr a meeting was na( at all in*por  t���������nt, consisting chiefly of tl*o passing  of accounts.  Recently Uieie has been considerable talk of the advisability of the  present council passing a bylaw providing a salary for the members of  the next Council. In other cities  such a bylaw is in force "and it is*un-  ('erstood that in Nanaimo the aldermen are paid $10 per month, the  Mayor $25, monthly, for their services  to the city.  Those of the citizens who argue iin  .-avor of tho passing of such a l*;-Uw  I -j-'nt out that it would i'o a  lot towards avoiding delay in transition of City business on account of  i o quorum being formed. They say  several members of the present council aie employed in the mines. At  certain times these gentle-men are  working 0n   the     af lei noon shift and  and consequently there is fluently  no quorum formed. The supporters  of the proposition say that if the  members of the board were receiving  a salary they would no doubt be willing to lose a shift when necessary to  attend a meeting because tlie amount  they would be receiving from the city would make up for the loss they  would be subject to by so doing.  The members of the Council are at  present considering the matter.     Up  to this    time they have not felt warranted   n     passing a   salary bylaw  on account of the somewhat crippled  state oi the finances.   Whether or not  the    citizens     generally would favor  such  a bylaw is   not known, and no  doubt the present  board would care  to take no action unless assu-ed that  it would meet with     approval from  the majority.   Some of  those   who  urge     that the movement be made,  suggest that   the amount to be paid  th'- mayor    and aldermen be haif ;l.e  sum     received by the Nanaimo council, until     the state of the finances  warrant a larger expenditure in this  direction.   It is understood that mem  hers  of the council cannot vote salaries  for  themselves.   If  the council  DISCOVERED PLATINUM  AT VALE,  B.  C.

A  connnitlcc of Japanese has been  formed at Seattle for the purpose   of  aiding  a movement  to  raise .15,000,-  000   yen  to  be    used   in building  and  developing  a volunteer  steamer   fleet  for Japan.    The vessels will  be  used  similarly to  the      Russian volunteer  steamers,      in   the merchant  marine*  service iu   peace time and to augment  the     navy  in war time.   Thc movement      was      iniHalted   by   Admiral  Prince  Arisugawa,  a naval expert of  Japan,  who studied   in England and  who  was special  eii\ oy from the Mikado  to the     coronation of Edward  ��������� VII.    ..  The  plan  is to  build the ships     in  Japan   and   thus  stimulate shipbuilding iu   the   Empire.    As  fast as   the  vessels  arc completed   they will      be  turned   over   Id  a  [ rivaio- company-  who   will   pay   a stated   sum   into  Hie  voluii'tcer  fund   for   the  use  of     such  ships.   Should   -Japan become -involved  in      war,   the  vessels, will   be "funit-d  over  lo  the  government'foi' absolute  control.   o   A   new  sounding   apparatus   for us'j  on   vessels   is  being   tested   at:      San  Francisco  by   J-  W.   Frank,  the.  patentee.    He   claims   that   the    vater's  depth may he easily  ascertained fiom  the surface instead   of from      .* 'hot-  loin of lhe sen, and  he asst.'ts mi,ie-  ovcr,   that   his   invention   will    force  every   sounding   device   to  tin  wall.  Though the better known anarchists  ..re kept under     cose, obsenaUon by  .he police m c.cry capital m Euiopc,  .did   though      the   various   Anarchist-*  .jioup.s are never wahoia I hen. hpics,  ilns constant     watching has in prac-  ucc Jament.s\ljiy.    failed'lo protect tho  .voritl'b rulers     uom assassination or  attempted^ assassination.   The  reason  ���������s that  the assassin is usually a com-  , arativdy obscure nien-jjicr of a (Irjup  and keeps his own counsel.   To avoid  oeUayui    or discovery     lie ihscippeais  quietly ami  acts  upon his  own initiative-     Oiten 1ns closest friends do not  now   what     he intends  to do-    Until  .he world echoes with his crime, |they.  .ire as ignorant of     its planning and  .ccomijiishiiKiit     as   the  most  unsus  iccting policeman  Ra-sochoi  went   about Pans  with  a  .omb 'in his pocket.

Thc     pivot     of Anarchism  is    thc  Oro'-ip,  and  this  characteristic  makes  the ramiI'uations of the  movement dif  fjcuil   to gnp. CiiJike other secret societies, Feniamsm, ior instance, *it has  no  organization-    A doz.cn men  ,  may  meet tonight, say. as  "The.;Boi*.d of  Right Group."      By' tomorrow night  the niemlieis may have icjuarirciied and  divided, and half of them formed, another    group     called    "The     Lion's  Cubs.'' Since the     smash up of    lhe  old  Autonomic  Anarchism in  London  is not quite what  it  used lo be, hut  let nobody assume that it has di-sap-  pcaied.   The public parks and     open  spaces  soon shatter that  delusion.  'lhe wiiter could quote anuml.crof  villainous extracts from Anarchist.  newspapers, collected for him by a  man at, one time inside the movement. He prefers, however, the humorous side of the advertising columns which certainly yield humor in  plenty.

One of the men.  in  the place, was  told  to bringdown  ceiyihing  from  the shelf.    Laughing  up his sleeve, probably,  he mounted  a pair  of rickety   stairs,   grasped  the  precious     column  of type,  and,  pretending  to  slip  on  the  steps,   dropped it thudding to the floor.
