Despite the luet that Monday evening's council meeting wns the first
lor two weeks, there was not much
business of importance to , consider
besides the payment of accounts nnd
receiving of reports. The former
amounted to $9(10.56, arid wore band
ed over to thc finance committee to
be paid if lound correct. Amongst
the reports wns that ol llie road

street. He also pointed out Hie necessity ol repairing u crossing iu
the vicinity ol Siler's Livery Stable
on First Avenue, being a menace lo
horses being driven over il. During
the reading ol the report Aid. Patterson stated thai he had noticed
the railings on tire .sidewalk above
the Pretoria hotel had boon broken
down, and thought tliey too, should
be fixed. All these matters will be
attended by the street committee.
Regarding street work, the spies.

Patterson wanted to know why two
men could mn have two or throe

both standing around wntohinn one
pile Wurn. This seolnodtotho what
to* rest ol the councilman wanted to
luiow, and it ms .suggested Unit uU
was up to theroud foioninn. His
Worship explained that in Jils opinion the road foreman had already
too mainy positions, to (ill and do
justice to them all. He thought il
wus iampossihh' lor him to lie at
two or Mirec differenl places in Iho
city at tIh- same time, und ns il
will now bo neoossary to have several differenl gongs ,ol men al work

lition was satisfactory, and the
street committee will attend to the

While discussing)' Btrocl work Aid,
Campbell said he IhougHil some inure
work ouglii to be done lu "Gould's
Canal." Ile understood that nt thc
end ot the clitc-l. the water wus d.iitil
considerable damage, and Mr. Gould
was again complaining.

ry trifling, und, in fact, he had boen

at present no riarnago wan lining! done

Ills Worship's opinion wns also
that the repoit was atelso alarm
and the money would be much hotter
spent on the streets, whore il w.is
needed much more
The only correspondence received
was a letter from Ml'. ('. II. Dickie,
of Duncans, regarding payment tor

lie did mil intend to make a full report tor the reason thai in the near
future printed pamphlets containing
all the proceedings of tlie convention
would he in the bunds ol lhc aldermen. This had been one of the points
iriisod by His Worship at tlie convention, ire asking thai such pamphlets lie printed and distributed to
rich alderman ol tlio several councils;
represented iu Ihe Union. His request
had Itecu granted, and he thought il
heller to aivail the arrival ol the
pamphlets. However, be might say
lhat lie was very favorably Impressed witli thc manner in which mailers were conducted at the convention, and he believed that much good
could be accomplished by the union.
lie staled that one ol the changes
made nl the recent mooting was thc
passing ol a rule to the effect Unit
rti the future uo proxies will be allowed to represent municipalities.
The representatives must bo either

ORE FROM
IVALDBZ ISLAND
The Tyce Smelter this week received two small shipments of ore
which will In treated as soon as
the smelter resumes operations, a-
hnut the Irjtli ol this month.
From Vahlez Island came 125 tons
of ore, which ls the first shipment
from that section. It came trom a
promising property known as tho
"Copper Cliff," situated on the water's edge, and owned by Messrs.
Sinlson and McGill.
While this is, as stated above, the
first shipment, the results arc looked
forward to wilh confidence, and il
they are ns anticipated, the mine
should soon income a shipper, it being situated ut the water's edge and
within easy reach ol vessels.

In an interview wilh Air. <\ 11.
Dickie of Duncans, Mils week, the
Lodger was informed that mining at
Mt. Sicker is at presont looving very
good ami Mr. DfoJcio considers thu
outlook very encouraging.
Mr. Dickie is largely Interested in
tlie Richard ITI IMW'rty, and is
very sanguine of its luturo prosperity. He states that on Tuosdny Another »hift was added to the working force, .iinil the work, is prooo«Mii|j
most satisfactorily Al iirst, while
in the uelgJiJiorhoDd of the shaft, il
was necessary to work more carefully, hait now tliat a -start ha; been
made, better results me anticipated.
"We expect," said Mr. Dickie, "to
reaoh the line of the Tyee mine in a-
bout fifty days from now, striking
them on their 100 root level. According to the latest reports wv have received from the Tyee, they have
struck a lar«,« body of ore on their
luU-foot level, and the Indications
all point to a continuance of this
body, which, as slated above, we
expect to strike within the next lifly
days."
siiiri'iibh' interest was displayed i'i
Ladysmith in the development of tho
Richard, owing to the fact that flite
,i Tow local men hold stock in tho
company, Mr. Dickie stated that
Miry wore nol far wrong, in liis opliii
ion, when they inveslivl.
"Down here/' he continued, "wo
.ni' satisfied that the property is al*
right, and thai this is tlie case is
shown by Uic fact that recently wo
placed on the market fifteen thou.sutu|
(shares or treasury stools' at twenty-
live tents per share, and havo disposed of all ot it, without any trouble.
This is all the stock we have to sell
and the money derived from the samtf
will '.*e used lor development purposes."
It was not many months ago that
Richard III stock was selling in
Ladysmith ai seven, nnd even five,
cents per shore, and those who invested af the time are to be     con-

Horovnd means leader of a chorus.
Every Russian villager, man or woman, knows a horavod. It always
begins with the chief melody sung
by one voice or' a number ol voices
in unisioii.
The secondary parts nic a free
Imitation of-it, and once thc chief
melody has been given out every
member of the .company develops it
according to his taste. The two
sexes never mix and sing with each
other. There nre always male and
female horovodi. Some of these folk
songs arc collected Irom the phonograms hy Eugenia Llncfl in "The
Peasant Soti^s of Great Russia,"
The broad, slow flowing rivers ol
Russia seem to exercise a strong
fascination upon Ihe peasants imagination. On llie banks of the Volga groups ot men and women may
often be seen in summer dragHnr:
out timlber whicli 1ms floated down,
and ns they tug nt their burden
ftliey sing.
The gist of i, isl of their river
pongs is flint if you are burn'to l.r-

AN EMPEROR'S LIBRARY
In ISPS Napoleon formed Hie idea
of having a traveling library in order lo make his hours ol Intellectual recreation independent ol the
exigencies of a curmjiaign or the rle-
l.ris of a courier. The proposed library wris to form about a thousand volumes. The books were to
be of small duodecimo size, printed
in good type and without mangin
in order lo save space. They were
to  lie bound in morocco,  with  llex-
ible covers and limp backs. The
boxes for their conveyance were to
be covered with leather anil lined
with green velvet and wore to average sixty volumes apiece in two
rows like the shelves ln a library

CATARRH of the kidnoys ia a very
much neglected disease.
It is not until the disease, has a firm
hold upon the kidnoys that the patlont
begins to realize that there ls soma derangement of these organs.
The slight backaches, the feelings of
lassitude, and othor warning symptoms
of kidney disoaso are overlooked.
They are not serious enough to detain
the patient from liin regular work.
Even when he discovers that the kidneys aro affected, ho does nut recognize
thodiflienliy as beingcaused by catarrh.
Catarrh is sometimes bo very gradual
in its approach and itsearllorBymptoms
cause such slight discomfort that it te
not noticed.
However, when it is oriee firmly seated
in the kidneys lt becomes a iiiiii.-i.lt
diseaso to exterminate.
Indeed, catarrh of the kidneys is more
serious thau catarrh affectiug some of
the othor organs of the body.
ln tho kidneys it is liable to terminate
In Brig tit's Disouflo or diabetes, both of
which are recognized as very serious
ailments, if not fatal.
Tho thing to bu done, when catarrh of
the kidneys is discovered, is to take
soinelntornal,syn(emiooatarrh remedy,
oue tliat roaches tlie very source ot the
catarrh and removes the cause of the
difficulty.
Such a remedy has been found ln

Sunlight Soap is better than
other soaps, but it belt when
used in the Sunlight way (follow
directions).
Hard rubbinj and boiling are
things of the past in homes
where Sunlight Soap is used as
directed.
Sunlight Soap will not injure
even thc dainties! fabric or the
hands, and the clothes will be
perfectly white, woolens soft
and fluffy.
The reason for this is because
Sunlight Soap is absolutely pure,
contains no injurious chemicals
- indeed, nothing but the active,
cleansing, dirt-removing properties of soap that is nothing but
soap.
Hqually good wiih hard or
