Harkness,  McArdle, McCallum, Schnitter and  Webster were present at the regular  meeting-of the. city, council on  Monday evening.  Alex Clunis was present and  'made complaint of stock' being  picketed on a vacant lot opposite  his residence on Fourth street,  claiming that they created a nuisance. ��������� The matter was referred to  the health and relief committee.  A letter from J. E. W.

A letter from tbe secretary of the  workmen's compensation board,  Victoria, asked for data regarding  salaries paid .hy the city to policemen, firemen and other civic^ employees. The clerk explained that  it would be very difficult to fill out  the blanks furnished by^the board,  owing to the fact .that the salaries of  the chief and some of the other employees.are charged to two or more  departments. The council instructed him to explain the situation to  the board and ask for a ruling in  cases of this character.  The chairman of the water and  light committee asked for a ruling  as to which department had prior  right to the use of the city team.  A resolution was adopted giving the  fire department the first clainf on  the team, and the board of works  the second. The other departments  are to apply to the city clerk when  they want it.  Tbe matter of converting the two  acres at the pumpiog elation into a  park came up for discussion again.  The members took a more favorable  view of the scheme than they did  at the last meeting. The parks com '  mittee was given authority to act.  The chairman of the health and  relief committee reported that there  WILt.CONTINUE WAR.  TfrVIdTQRIOUS END  Predicting that a republic of peace  will, .rise in Russia after the war,  Premier Lyoff, of . the provisional  government, has sent a message to  the American people through Isaac  F.

"The newest of democracies greets  America with peculiar fervor, because it feels that the American  people can readily understand what  the great'Russian revolution means,"  Baid Lyoff.- ���������/ v *".  "Autocracy-.in-Russia is dead forever.' In its stead will soon rise a  republic of peace..  "We wish America to realize thoroughly thatthere can be but one  result of the .great upheaval, and  that result a real democracy modeled along the lines of the American  republic, creating a government by  and for the whole people. It will  mean justice and opportunity to  everybody.  ���������"The name Russia once meant  darkness and oppression. It wiTl  now mean light and freedom. The  new Russia will b" the frankest and  most liberal of republics. In new  Russia tbe Jew and the Gentile are  are brothers.  "We want America to know- that  Russia,will-continue the war to a  peace dictated by allied voices. The  revolution, ...which_. wiped out pro-  German conspiracies' against' national life insures the result. Oniy  on complete victory can our Russia  of peace be reared.  "In that struggle we are proud to  have America as an ally. Russia  looks to America for fresh bonds and  new, lasting, commercial democratic  kiuship."  Legislature   Got, Through  With Much Business at  Last Session  BREAD IS THE PRICE OF  INTERNATIONAL PEACE  "Bread is the price of international peace in Europe, and the size  of the loaf will depend absolutely  on what can be secured from the  North American continent," Herbert Hoover, American food administrator, said ' in Washington last  Monday.  Hoover said the allies will require  five hundaed million bushels of  wheat at the next harvest. With  this appeal the bouse aud senate  are working on tbe Gore Lever food  bill, providiag for a general food  survey and means of stimulating  production.  "With tbe lower class in Europe  bread is the fetish of food," Hoover  warned. "Without the loat, even  assuming you give them dietic efficiency of something���������without thfi  loaf you couldn't preserve public  tranquility." Besides, Hoover said  the allies require three hundred and  fifty million buflhelBoi cereals.

Will Back Up District Union  , 7"' *'  in Demand for 30 Per  Cent Inctease/  the  the  the  Calgary, Alberta, May 30.���������Another step has been reached in the  miners' strike situation and the men  seemed to have gained one point.  Following the instructions from  the international board that the miners return to work on the 15 per  cent increase agreement, the various  camps in the district have notified  President Graham of the union of  their intention to back up the district union in its demands for the 30  per cent increase and their intention-  to stay with their demands.  "There is no possibility as far as  we can see at present of any camp  deviating from this line of action,"  says Secretary A. J. Garter, "and' we  are quite . satisfied with conditions."  No word had been received from  the government or the operators and  no move v&$ anticipated as fai as the  resuming of work ab the mines in the  center and southern part of the dis- ._  -trict were concerned. ��������� ������������������ ^   -  On the other hand, intimations of  meeting the- men's demands have  come from the Grand Trunk section  in which are located the Mountain  Park, Pacific and Yellowhead, large  independent mines. Requests for  representatives from the policy committee were made, and two representatives left tonight for that district and it is expected that the 30  per cent increase will bo conceded  there.  From the Bruhle lake region on  the Canadian Northern railway, where  some 800 miners are .on strike, no  such intimations have beeu .received  so far and more or less uncertainty  is felt concerning the opinion of the  mine owners there. The mines in  both the G. T. P. and C. N. R. districts are not represented in the  Western, Coal Operators' organization and are thus free to .settle their  difficulties with the men individually.  Representative Rees, who has been  attending the international board  meeting in Indianapolis, is expected  in the morning.  On Own Terms Only  The Montreal Star correspondent  at Ottawa wires that according to  advices received at the capital, the  sjtriking miners of British Columbia  and Alberta "are not inclined to return to work except a* their own  terms," notwithstanding the offers  of President White of the United  Mine Workers' International union  to end tbeir strike. The correspondents adds:  "It is said Vice-President Rees,  Canadian representative of the international council has left for Calgary to persuade tbe men to follow  President White's advice. This will  be the iast effort of a settlement by  agreement, and if this fails, it ih believed Hon. T. W.
