A couple of communications were  read, without action   being   taken,  -   One from A. B. Buck worth in reference to a block of land was laid over  until the next meeting.  An offer of ������400 from W. T.  Meyer for some lots in the West end  was accepted conditionally.  A letter,from R. Barrow, inspector of municipalities, stated that the  legislation in the house to permit  municipalities to reissue their debentures was-progressing favorably.  ' The clerk was instructed to write to  Solicitor McDiarmid, of the Union  of B. C. Municipalities, and ask him  to prepare the necessary bylaw i for  the refunding of the bonds.  A letter from the superintendent  of the B. C. Telephone company,  Vancouver, asked the council's ap  proval of a tracing of telephone  poles to be erected on Winnipeg and  Cecil avenues. Referred to the water  and light committee and the board  of works.  The past mouth's accounts were  ordered to be paid.  The chairman of the fiuance committee reported that bis committee  had discussed the bond question  with the manager of the Bank of  Commerce, and that arrangements  had practically been made for the  redemption of the bords maturing  on the 15th of May. The council endorsed the action taken by the committee.  The chairman of the finance committee reported that the committee  had determined upon an upset'price  to be set upon the city piopercy  which will be offered for sale at the  auction sale in June. On motion,  an appropriation of $50 was voted  for advertising the sale.  The chairman of the board of  works reported that some street  grading was being done. He recommended that the board walk on  Donald street from the fill to Winnipeg avenue be replaced by a cinder  walk. Adopted. . He also recommended that the wages of the city  workman, James Walker, be increased from ������100 to ������120 per  month. On motion the recommendation was approved, the raise to  run from the first of April.  The board of works was author"  ized to advertise for tenders for the  city teaming work.  The chairman of the water and  light committee recommended that  all meters be placed outside of buildings, the report being approved by  the council. He also reported t-iat  there were a number  of old  build-  ings in the city which he considered Mrs. T. Brooks, accompanied by  as a grave menace to fires. On mo- her daughters, Misses Vivian and  tion, a committee consisting of the Alice, left this week for a three  mayor, the fire chief and the chair- weeks' visit to Seattle and other  men of the water and light and the'coast cities.  document to.the council. After some  discussion, on motion of Aid. McDonald and. Miller, the resignation  was accepted, and the clerk was instructed to advert se in the Nelson,  Winnipeg, Vancouver and the. local  papers for applicants, for the position, applications to be in by the  first of May and duties to commence  May lo.  The council decided to advertise  .the old chemical fire engne for sale  in two issues of the Calgary   Herald.  The chairman of the health and  relief committee recommended that  Monday, April 26, be designated as  civic clean up day, and that the  Usual notices be inserted in the local  papers. He also reported a couple of  chronic charity, cases, one of which  had been supplied with a cord of  wood and $20 worth of groceries  and the other with $15 worth of  groceries.       . '  The clerk reported that the police  com mission ere   had   tendered   him  the,cheque from ,the .compensation  board for the chief of police's recent  illuess,  as  the chief had. been paid  his regular salary by the city and as  he (Mr. Hutton) had performed his  services .during   his   sickness,   but  that he had refused   to   accept  the  same and the cheque still   remained  to be disposed of as the council saw  fit.    It.seemed to be the opinion  of  the members of the council   that, as'  the city insures its employees and as  the chief had been   paid   his salary  and all expenses during bis   illness,  the cheque was the property of  the  city.    This   view, it   was   felt,   was  further   supported   by the fact that  the police board has no jurisdiction  over the city's finances.   On motion  Initial Cost of Erecting  Buildings Will Be Covered by Sale of Government Property  of Aid. Hull, a resolution was  adopted setting forth that in the  matter of the compensation board  cheque, the council feel that the  police commission acted outside  their jurisdiction, and that they be  requested to reconsider fheir action.

Victoria. April 15. ��������� Veiled intimations have reached the government since its announcement to proceed with the erection of the- University buildings at Point Grey indicating a species of disappointment  that three million dollars are to be  expended for the alleged benefit-of  one community. Suggestions have  been advanced that the temporary  premises are sufficient to meet the  requirements of higher education  until the province is better able to  divert its financial resources from  other more varied classes of develop  ment. It has been argned in some  cases of objection that British Columbia might as well prepare itself  to wipe off this three million dollars  as a bad debt at the commencement,  since; the government property at  Point Grey can not be developed in.  time for advantage to be taken of  the present urgent demand for resi-  dental holdings.     % .  The official mind,   however, is by  no means perturbed by these unintelligent   and.   doleful   predictions.  Those who are in a position  to   de  tect the signs of the times are of the  opinion that this move on   the  part  of   the   government   is   one of the  shrewdest pie'ees. of business  uegoti  ated for some time.    Critics   of  the  proposal, moreover, should  bear in  mind that at the  present  time   the  three thousand acres in question are  idle, non producing and   in   consequence non-taxpaying.   Lack of  information as to the potentialities of  the area adjacent, to the university,  perhaps,., is   responsible.for the inability   of   some  opponents of  the  plan to understand the   prospect  of  lucrative   sale   once   the  lands  in  question   are   brought   under    the  proper measure of   cultivation   and  preparation for  township  purposes.  In   this   connection  it shouid be  remembered that Vancouver of   its  own accord   has grown  couunually  of late toward   the   university   site.  .Neighboring  subdivisions have sold  like"   hot   cakes��������� almost    as    soon  as   they   have     been     placed   on  the market, without   the added   attraction  which   invariably  attaches  to a university townsite.   And apart  the usefulness of the institution  has  been impaired to a  very  considerable extent, and only by the inauguration   of  a  program similar to that  just outlined by the   government   is  it possible to ensure its reaching the  position among the educational  establishments  of   the   Dominion   to  which it is justly entitled.    ���������_-���������;.; .^������i-v.  The situation in a nutshell, therefore, ip the decision to launch a new  program,     the    consummation   of  which   will  give   to this province a  university of which western Canada  may well be proud, while the initial  expenditure will be completely  covered many times over by the sale of  government property adjacent to tbe  site of the contemplated structure-���������  a series of transactions which should  benefit   the   provincial   treasury to  the extent of many millions of   dol  lars. :   There is another point worth  mentioning: No less than two millions of acres, originally reserved to  provide^ao endowment fund with  which the cost of the university's  maintenance could.be met, will now  be freed and made available for set"  tlement in the ordinary way .under  the aegis of the land settlement  board.. The government, therefore,  has.no forebodings in respect of its  decision to proceed with the construction of the institution in ques  tion and the development of its  property in confident expectation of  lucrative sales.    -    Electors Are to Be ,Asked  Which They Prefer, the  Present Act or Government Sale  News of the City  J. W. Pycah, of Transcona,Man.,  this week purchased the farm of  Gabriel -Palek, near Clement's place  in the West end, for the consideer  ation of ������3500. The deal was  promoted by Meggitt &, Knight. Mr.  Pycah expects to take up his residence Uere in June.  Victoria, April 12.���������The form of  the question on the prohibition  referendum promised by Premier  Oliver was made known on Saturday, when the bill to provide for the  referendum was brought into the  house.  The act provides that the ballot  shall be upon the question as fallows:  "Whieh do you prefer:  "(1) The present prohibition- act?  "(2) An act to provide for the  government control and sale in sealed packages, of spiritous and malt  liquors?"  , The vote is to be taken not earlier  than August 1 or not later than  September 30 of this year.  G.W.V.A. NOTES  J. M Leamy, consulting engineer  for the province of Manitoba, accompanied by his wife and children, arrived in the city from Winnipeg  Wednesday night, and will visit for  a fortnight's visit at the home of his  mother, Mrs. M.

Commencing on May 1,  the dining room and rooms will be  under the management of Mrs. J.  G. Murray. The house is now being  repainted, repapered and renovated.  On the 29th inst., the case of  Laws vs. The V. V. & E. Railway  company will be argued in the  county court in this city. Plaintiff  is suing for ������600 damages.    Pincott  J. A.

These are the  more   material  and   human   aspects   of   the   case  which can not be gainsaid, while no  reasonable   argument   will   be   advanced against   the   desirability   of  removing from !he activities  of   the  uuiversity   the   serious    handicaps  under which it has labored since the  The postponed meeting of the  local   branch   of   the  G.W.V A. was  held last Friday, and  although   the  attendance was smaller  tbau   usual,  considerable   business  came   before  the meeting to be dealt   with.   By a  unauimous vote, the association extended to the matron of  the  Grand  Forks hospital, Mrs. M. Kingston, a  life membership in  the association,  accompanied    with   the   regulation  badge, made  into   the   form   of   a  brooch, in recognition    of   overseas  service.  Three new members joined tbe  association, Comrades John Gras-  sick, Richard Park and Liurie Riri-  dell, which briugs the membership  up to about sixty.  It was decided to have the nominations for officers on the night of  Friday, the 16th, and election will  be held two weeks later.  The matter of better service by the  solders' settlement board for the  district was discussed. Several cases  were cited where returned men were  making an effort to secure homes in  the valley through that department,  but the want of a government representative in the Boundary district  to supply information and deal with  loans to returned men, makes it almost impossible for them to settle  here. Some action will be taken  along this line at the next   meeting.  At tbe last meeting of tbe  school  board   Principal   Stephens,  of   the  high school,   tendered  bis   resigna  lion.

FRIDAY, APRIL 16, 1920  The prorogation of the provincial parliament at Victoria will probably be made tomorrow. The session has been productive of  a great deal of legislation, and some* wholesome and advanced laws have been added to  the statutes of the province. When the people  become fully aware of the importance of some  of these Acts, it is not unreasonable to sup-  posethat the government will be considerably  stronger with the electors than it was a few  months ago.  According to the managing director of the  Marconi' system, it will be possible within six  months to hold a wireless telephone conversation between New York and London. The  cnarge, the director says, will be twenty-four  cents a word, and it will be as easy to hear the  other speaker as if he were in the same room.  The Marconi system plans within a year to  extend its wireless telephone service to Australia, India and Egypt. Twenty-four cents a  word may be, and probably is, cheap for the  service rendered; nevertheless, it will hardly  encourage garrulity.  <r-  It is expected that sailors and savages should  be tattooed, and side-show performers are  often notaj)le examples of the art; but a French  coachman originated the most extraordinary  design ever worked on a human body. At the  time of the Dreyfus trial he had at least one  hundred and twenty illustrations of the case,  including portraits of the leading persons connected with it, tattooed on himself. The tattooing took almost two years. It almost seems  "Yist'day," says Uncle Zeke, "Ah drapped  foah cents on de floah, an' dey made a big  racket.

There are  approximately 1,250,000 more women than  men in the United Kingdom, which means  that many more than a million must choose  between emigration and spinsterhood. The  records of the Salvation Army show that three-  fifths of the girls who emigrated several years  ago to countries where women were in the  minority were married within three years of  their arrival; and opportunities for work at  good wages attract many women who would  not leave home merely to find a husband.

In fact it is an art to  do anything well. We should never let  courtesy depart from an action, no matter  how frequently it is performed.  In answering the telephone we should  never forget that the person who called  anticipateK an announcement as to whom  is making the reply. Particularly is this  the case in business���������announce your firm  and your name, and the introduction is  complete without any roundabout questioning.

BUSINESS <������MAN,  have you ever thought  that advertising put? you in  good company? It is an old  saying that a man is known  by the company he keeps.  When you join the ranks of  the advertisers you join the  ranks of the biggest and  most successful merchants  and manufacturers- in the  world.  How many large concerns  can you name in any large  city in the country? Name  them and you will notice  that all are big advertisers  and all are leaders in their  lines. Ask your friends to  name the most successful  merchants they know in the  big cities, and in each case  the name ot a great advertiser will be mentioned.  The same rule is true of  smaller cities and towns.  The successful merchants  are the advertisers. The  advertiser stamps himself as  one having confidence in  himself and his wares, as  one proud of his calling and  seeking publicity and the  test of patronage.  a  a THE   SUN.
