The decision was arrived at unanimously after  several of the aldermen went at length  Into their reasons why they were forced  to adopt this attitude.-  The report of Mr. Wynn Meredith,  consulting engineer for the city on the  Sooke work, and Water Commissioner  Rust pointed out that the two bids recently received from McDonald, Godson & Co. of- "Vancouver, for $485,203,  and that of Mr, David A. Chesney, for  $426,080, were regular and guaranteed  by satisfactory bonding concerns. The  McDonald, Godson Co., the report'stated,  has the plant and financial standing necessary, but owing to t'h'e high price bid  the water commissioner did not feel  warranted in accepting it, and tlie engineers expressed their regret that the  Council had seen fit to throw out the  first bids "and refuse to accept that of  the McDonald, Godson Company at $ 144,-  9SS, which they (the. engineers) h'ad recommended for acceptance.  .VANCOUVEB.

The Value of
Spare Moments
From every section, and from all sorts and conditions of men,
messages-come to tell of earnings increased and futures brightened
through Btudy of I. C. S. Courses during spare time.
One letter gives the romance of a young man in California that
began with little' or no education; another tells the story of a high
school graduate in Maine that found himself educated for everything
-uutto make aliving. 'Here are~the~heart-trobs~of a fellow that toiled
12 hours a day and studied his Course as best he could; of a foremen or superintendent that enrolled because his ambition aimed
at still bigger things.
No matter where you live, how little spare time you have, or
how brief your schooling, the I. C. S. can raise your salary: That
statement is backed with 20 years of success and a record of 400
or more advancement letters re.ceived every month.
I. C. S. Courses have made draftsmen, foremen, and superintendents of shop hands; building contractors, architects, structural
and concrete engineers of carpenters and masons; advertising men,
window trimmers, chemists, illustrators, and designers of clerks;
electrical, mechanical and steam engineers of laborers; mine inspectors, foremen,'and mining engineers of mine workers; bridge
engineers, surveyors and mappers,! civil engineers,: gas. engineers,
automobile runners and civilservice employees of young, men TVill-
ing to use their spare time to mold a career.
Suppose you were to increase your earnings only ��20 a month���
what a fine return that would be on your spare-time investment!
Yet some have increased their earnings ?250 a month.
Mark and mail this coupon and you will receive free information how you can increase your earnings by spare-time study.

Piers, Victoria���������-4.n Ottawa dispatch  announces that proposals have 'been invited by the Dept. of Public Works, at  Ottawa, for the construction of two  piers for Victoria; tenders to close at  Ottawa   on   Dec.   9,   1913,   4   p.m.  The harbor scheme calls for two additional piers.' One will be next the breakwater and the fourth between Pier Three  and  Rithet's wharf.   .  The first plans called for the construction this year of Piers One and Two  but owing to the work now proceeding on  the breakwater It was afraid if might  interfere with construction there, so it  was decided to build Piers Two and Three.  The two Diers will have four slips���������  three being eight hundred,feet long; and  one a thousand feet. i  The piers are 250 feet wide and each  slip has a width of 300 feet.  The specifications call for reinforced  concrete work throughout so that the  piers will be thoughly modern in every  respect.  The arrangement will be as ��������� follows:  On the east the breakwater, then a space  that will be left vacant until that great  work has been completed; then will come  a-pier,-then-a-sl!p -300-feet-wido;--thcn  another pier and then a vacant space  where a fourth pier will be built. The  two piers now to be built will give 3,400  feet of dockage and this will be at east  doubled when the others are built, so  that the present plan provides In all for  a mile and 1,500 feet, approximately, of  out the British Empire. There will be  at least two buildings and probably a  third one'for the courts. Halloa million  superficial feet of floor space will have  to be provided."  Designs of a general character will  first be submitted and from this .number  the best six will bo selected and the authors of t'hcbe will be asked to elaborate  their designs. The one finally selected  will get the job of superintending the  work based- on his plans and will be  given a five per cent commission. The  cost of the buildings will probably aggregate five million dollars.  The other five competitors who will  be asked to develop their general designs  will each receive $3,000. The sketches  will be received up to April 2 next.  Then three months will be given for the  best half dozen to develop their plans.  The competitors whose plans are accepted will be given a further period of  four months to prepare working plans.  Afterward tenders will be called for,  but, in view of the time allowance, this  will  not ,be  before  next autumn.  The cost of the building will .aggregate $5,000,000 dollars.
