'  A communication from thepro-  vincial secretary of the Daughters of  the Empire auked the council to call  a public meeting for the purpose of  purchasing and equipping a hospital  ship, to be presented to the empire  by the women of Canada. It was  intended to raise $100,000 for this  purpose by. voluntary contributions.  British Columbia's share of this  amount would be $10,000. It was  decided to call the i meeting for  Thursday evening. The mayor  expressed himself as.being in ,favor  of inviting-the clergy of,the .city;:to  be present at the meeting and to cooperate in the movement. ".All the  aldermen were heartily in favor  of the meeting; but, owing  to the fact that the city's . main in;,,  _ dustry had been closed ��������� down,  they expressed fears that.t^e people  would not be able to contribute as  liberally as they otherwise would  have done, However, they felt cer .  tain that the citizens of Grand Forks  would subscribe their quota.  The' chairman of the board of  works reported that prior to the  outbreak , of the .war the property  owners along the proposed cement  sidevalk on First street had signified  their willingness to put stone foundations under their buildings. Since  the war started they might have  changed their minds. The city team  ���������was employed" graveling Winnipeg  avenue; some repairs had been made  to the Winnipeg avenue bridge; the  construction of the cement sidewalk  on Miner avenue ;had. *been post-;  poned until the property owners  decided whether they wanted a  wider walk than four feet or not; a  new walk was needed in front of the  Province hotel, but he- advised  that the construction >f this, as well  as that on First street, be postponed  until there is an improvement in the  preeent unsettled conditions.  The chairman of the water and  light committee reported that the  electric clock, which turns on and  out the street lights automatically,  had arrived and that it had been installed. It was performing its work  satisfactorily. Instructions had been  issued to all departments under the  committee to curtail expenses as  much as possible and to inaugurate  no new work; the final arrangements  for the signal for the chief of police  on the fire hall tower had not yet  been made; the window lights in the  stores should be turned out at 10,  according to the bylaw.  The policeman on duty was instructed to turn the window lights  at 10:30 p.m.  ��������� The council fixed-the - water. rate.',  for the Cofurabia brewery at $15 per  i i   :������{ '."it;/ ��������� /.n">. *',!���������  month; beginning with August 1. ,  Rev.

Manly also reported that  the financial outlook rof the city was .u'ot/o.f'  the brightest, and he spoke in favor  of retrenchment.  He suggested a cut  of 20 per cent in the salaries  of, all  city employees and the school teachers fluring the present disturbed conditions in Europe. _, '  On motion of Aid. Manly and  McCallum, a resolution was adopted  ordering.a temporary ' reduction of  20 per cent in the salaries of the city  employees and the school teachers,  commenciug August, 1. ;   .  The clerk was instructed to inform  the secretary of the-school board .of"  the action taken by the cpuucil.  Aid. Henniger, thought .that the  salaries of the.members of the city  council should be included in the  reduction, in which Aids Donaldson  concurred.- On motion of,Aid. Hen-  niger'an'd McCallum, Jbe salaries of  the may.or and the aldermen were  temporarily cut 20 per cent, beginning with August 1.  The council decided to hold the  annual sale of city property for de-  linqent taxes on September 15.  In consequence of the disturbed  conditions at present, it wae decided to add a few more constables  to the police force.  The council was of the opinion  that the public concerts of the city  band.as far as the council's grant for  the same was concerned, should be  discontinued. On motion of Aid.  Manly and.Bickerton, the resolution  making a grant of $300 to the city  band for twelve public cencerts was  rescinded, and the hand will be'paid  a pro .rata sum for the concerts already given.  It was also^.understood that the  grant of $500 to the Agricultural  association will be reduced if the  new exhibition building is not  erected this year.  outside   the  Friday  declares  war  on  .

occasion to remark that none but

that it might participate in the hac-!

funds raised by the alienation of
the province's natural resources.

verses to the London Times:
Thou caruless, awake,
Thou peacemaker, (i^ltt !
Stand. England, for honor
And God guard the right.
Thy mirth lay aside,
Thy cavil and play,
. The foe is upon thee
And grave is the day.
The Monarch, Ambition,   .
Has harnessed his slaves,
Rut the folk of the ocean
Are free as the waves.
For peace thou art armed,
Thy freedom to hold,
Thy courage as iron,
Thy good faith as gold.
Through fire, air and water ]
Thy trail must be,
But they that love life best
Die gladly for thee.
The love of their mothers
Is strong to command;
The fame of their fathers
Is might to their hand
Much suffering shall cleanse thee,
But thou through the ilood,
Shall win to salvation,
To beauty through blood.
Up. careless, awake !
Yea, peacemakers, fight !
England stands for honor,

Dr. Spencer, of Okanagan  college,   Surrmerland,    speak     oh  "Canada   and   Its   Relation to the  War."      Mr.      Spencer     outlined  the value  of  empire, and  spoke of  the long existing confusion and conditions among the nations   involved  in the present conflict.    He pointed  out the British  honor at  stake   in  Britain's decision, and the  national  problems requiring  solution   everywhere.    Special emphasis   was laid  on the   importance   of   all   classes  keeping   a   calm  and steady spirit' jda jferby.  and staying by the interests of their  ���������districts in times of stress as well as  prosperity.    He predicted  that  the  war would be short and decisive and  that ere long the tide of   prosperity  in material things will  come  to all  Canada.  In his address on "Christtan Education," both in Grand Forks Baptist church--and*at Danville, Dr.  Spencer spoke enthusiastically of  the rapid development not only educationally but materially in the  Boundary, Kootenay and Okanagan  districts when the new short-cut  ratlway to the coast, now 'Hearing  completion, is opened for traffic.
