A typographical error in the article on tlic Canadian Hank ol Commerce yesterday made the "profits';
rise eight million dollars in the
year. It should have rear! "deposits."
Mayor Cobum returned today Irom
Vancouver and Westminster and states that the lumber business there is
remarkably dull, the mills being
nearly all closed and the mill men
taking a very despondent view of
tlie situation.
The Methodist Church has been re
novated inside and the walls are covered with a nicely tinted ingrain p«j
per that adds much to the comfort
able and cheerful appearance of thc

WATER.MAIN BROKEN.
Tlic water main that supplies the
city is broken; a big landslide on
the hills about a mile ami a'half
from town having smashed the pipe
and making the damage somewhat
difficult to ropair. However, it is
hoped that by" tomorrow night all
will be well again. The Ledger is
under sonic difficulties in getting out
a paiier today in eonsdtiucncc, as
water power is used to work tho
machinery. However, by substituting man power lor water power, utilising a hand press and setting some
ol the type by hand, the paper is enabled to make a fairly good appearance under llie circumstances.
