C, FRIDAY, MARCH 1, 1918  $1.00 RER YEAR  Different Departments Have  Prepared Their Estimates  for Current Year  Mayor Acres and Aid. Harknpss,  Molrdle, McCallum, McDonald and  Schnitter were present at the regular bi-weekly meeting of tbe city  council  on Monday evening.  A letter from tbe secretary of tbe  Uuiou of British Columbia Municipalities requested the payment of  the city's membership fee. The bill,  815, was ordered paid.  The chairman of the finance committee reported in favor of letting  the back water and light rates on  the Lake property stand against-tbe  property. In the matter of Dr.  Kingston's .request for, a straight  grant for the treatment of city patients, he recommended that the re-  quest be^aljpwed to stand over for  the present. He also recommended  that 6100 be placed in the estimates for the purchase of certificates  to returned soldiers. The estimates  were all in. There was a small increase in the school estimates over  last year, owing to an extra teacher  b^iog employed in tbe high school.  The following are the amounts asked  for by the different departments:  Public Bchool.S13.286.50  High school... ' 5,455.25-818,741 75  Finance committee   23,710.43  Board of works.............    2,500.00  Police commissioners .....    2,U00.00  Cemetery...... .*:        100 06  Fire department...     1,035.00  Water department.;.'.......' 2,275.00  Electric light department 10,850.00  Health and relief...........    1,100.00  certificates for presentation to returned soldiers.  Aid. Harkness'waterworks amendment bylaw and his electric light,  heat and power bylaw were reconsidered and finally passed.  Aid. McArdle was granted leave  j to introduce a bylaw permitting and  regulating the keeping of pigs within the city limits, and the bylaw  was advanced to the ihird-reading  stage. The bylaw embodies the  recommendations made by the  health and relief committee at tbe  previous meeting and printed in  The Sun two weeks ago, with the  exception of Clause A, which was  changed"so as to make it discretionary with tbe health officer, in  certain cases, the distance a pig may  be kept from a dwelling.  Aid. McCallum gave notice that  at the next meeting he would ask  leave to introduce a temporary loan  bylaw.  Aid. McCallum also gave notice  that at the next meeting he would  ask leave to introduce a bylaw  making it compulsory for dealers to  weigh or measure all goods sold.  Total..... ������62,312.10  The report and the estimates were  accepted.  There will be a reduction in the  estimates of the works department  if the city team is sold. The estimates of nearly all departments  show a decrease when compared  with the estimates of last year.  There is a small increase in the  school estimates, for tbe reason  stated by the chairman of the  finance committee.  The contract to supply the city  with lum'ber during the present year  was awarded to Allen & Norris at  81S per 1000 feet,f o.b. Kettle Valley station. The only other tenderer  was the Republic Lumber company,  quoting a price of 814 at the mill in  Republic. Considering freight and  duty, tbe first-namad tender was  considered the lowest.  The contract to do the city teaming yvork was awarded to P. C.  Peterson at 87 per day for team and  driver aud 85 cents per hour for  less than a day and for street sprinkling, and 70 cents per hour for one  horse and driver. The contract was  let on condition that the city team is  sold. The other tenderers were the  Grand Forks Transfer compony and  Peter Hansen.  On motion of Aid. Harkness, a  resolution was adopted instructing  the clerk to advertise the electric  light power plant for sale in a  Vancouver paper.  On motion of Aid. Harkness, the  clerk   was   authorized  to purchase State Journal.  Canadian  Girls  in Training  The  Canadian Girls  in  Training  is the name of  a  new   organization  in this city.    The objects of the   society  are patriotic, religious, physi--  cal and intellectual.    The following  officers   have   been   elected:   President, Gwenneth Griffith;   vice presi  dents, Christina McCallum, Frances  Sloan   and  Julia Downey, they being   presidents  of  their   respective  Sunday-school    classes;    secretary,  Annie   Anderson;   treasurer,   Vera  Donaldson.    A committee  of  four  was placed in charge of each  of  tbe  departments:    Red   Cross    seeing,  Mrs.   Reid;   religious.   Mrs.   M. D.  McKee;    intellectual.   Miss   F.   H.  Fenton; physical,  Mrs.   J. H. Redmond.  Five Dead and Sixty-two in  Hospital After a Mght  of Horror  CUSTOMS RECEIPTS  R. R.

The American troops in the line  trenches in France this week received their baptism of Hun poisoned gas. As a result sixty-two of the  gas victims are now in hospital after  a night of borror,and five others were  killed when the Germans made a  gas attack on Tuesday evening.  The attack came suddenly after  an all-day rain. There was a huge  flare from the German trenches as  the minewerfers were discharged,  and then the shells burst, spreading  the dealth-dealing gas.  Three men were killed and nine  were overcome through their slowness in adjusting their gas masks,  and were carried helpless to hospitals, gasping for breath. Oxygen  was furnished immediately, and the  struggles of the men for breath were  most pitiable, exciting added bitterness against the Boches.  Some of the victims acted as if  they were drowning, and every  breath, was a horrible" groan, their  faces turning blue.  Tbe Boches delivered two attacks,  throwing seventy-five chlorine and  phosgeoe shells, high explosives and  minewerfers, firing them simultaneously. These explosives severed the  wiaes and delayed the American  barrage fully forty minutes, which,  when delivered, checked the at  tack. The German gas shells had  time fuses so as to explode over the  American lines. ���������-  The victims of the attack included  men from Washington, D. C., New  England, Indiana and the southern  states, including some of the artillerymen who were overcome by the  fumes.  tute.

Will Abolish  -Tax Rebates  If one of the amendments to the  Municipal Act proposed by Inspector Baird passes the legislatuie.there  will be no more rebates on civic  taxes afterit goes into effect. But  substantially the same effect will be  achieved in another way. Instead of  striking a gross rate and allowing  certain rebates or discounts for payment within certain specified periods, the act as amended provide  that municipal councils shall strike  a net rate, which shall be due and  payable on or before July 30, after  which a penalty shall be imposed at  the rate of 5 per cent up till October  30, and an additional 10 per cent  up till the end of- the year, after  which taxes shall be in arrears and  shall bear interest at the rate of 8  per cont per annum until paid.

With a sigh of relief  she disposed of her parcels and umbrella.  Then sho began to chat.  "Ah," she said, looking at tho  nurse's uniform admiringly, "I don't  know what we'd do without the likes  of you."  "Oh, you are too kind," protested  the nurse. "I'm sure you do things as  worthy every day."  "Not mo, miss.," said the old lady. '  Progress of mining development  in Similkameen mining division  during 1917, aa reported by P. B.  Freeland, resident mining enngeer:  Canada Copper Corporation, Ltd.  ���������This company, formerly known  as the British Columbia Copper  company, has been absorbed by tbe  Canada Copper Corporation, Limited, during the last few months.  This new' corporation intends to  spend the necessary amount to put  its group of mines on Copper mountain on an operating basis.  The work of blocking out the ore  bodies, also driving a tunnel at a  lower elevation, the building of a  sawmill and concentration plant are  already under way. A railway up to  the mine has also been surveyed.  A new bunkhouse has been built,  and every facility for carrying on  the work in a modern way has been  considered.  This company expended approximately $1,250,000 on development  up to JSJovetnberJ1, 1917. This  included diamond drilling, 11S.000  feet; tunnelling, 90 per cent of which  is 9x10 foot tunnels, 12,800 feet;  raising, 3000 feet; sinking, 936 feet;  sujface trenching, 32,000 feet.  In connection with the above  company, the old cement plant near  Princeton has been put into use for  experimental purposes and ascertaining the possibilities of noduliz-  ing concentrates from the company's  plant. Up to date these experiments  have been satisfactory, coal dust being used for fuel instead of oil.  Treasure Mountain.���������A considerable amount of interest has been  shown in the vicinity of Treasure  mountain, the high price of silver  and lead attracting several operators  to the locality. Some good leads of  silver-lead were uncovered in R.  Stevenson's claims while doing the  assessment.  Princeton Coal and Land Co.���������  This company has been operating  steadily during the year, at about  200 tons of coal per diem.  Tulamecn River.���������The high price  of platinum has stimulated a certain  amount of work in the placer claims  in the Tulameen river. No large  amount of metal has been taken out  up to the present time.  There has been some activity in  the coalfields in the Tulameen coal  basins during the year, aud it is  probable that these fields will bo  put on an operating basis in the  near future.  Osoyoos Coal Company.��������� Thin  com pany has opened up a good-sized  seam of coal six miles southeast of  Princeton.

C  office:   Columbia avenue and lake street.'  .FRIDAY, MARCH 1,1918  The soldiers' vote lms increased the Unionist majority in the federal house at Ottawa to  04. About 90 percent of. the men in khaki  voted for the Unionist government. There  are no slackers at the front.  Official information received during the past  few days  emphasizes the scarcity of supplies  of  cereals  and  meats  and   the necessity of  avoiding at all costs encroachment  upon  the  supplies  for .the armies.   In Great Britain, in  France, in Italy, the people are alive to  the  situation.   They know something of what the  next few months will mean.   Their spirit was  expressed  by Lord  Charles   Beresford   the  other day nwhen he said, "We are tightening  our belts and we are going to win."   A recent  cable from  London  stated that the present  meat ration in Great Britain is not more than  one-half of the  amount to which the people  have been accustomed.    Accompanied as this  is by the  restrictions on  the   consumption of  bread, it can not but entail physical loss and  privation. Canadians, too, must tighten  their  belts and  help the allies to win.   Use should  be made on this continent of every  available  substitute for wheat, beef and  pork.    Upon  our food  service depends   the  very  lives of  thousands of women and children in the allied  countries.  j every dollar they put into it, and will probably  i be called upon to pay up the uncalled balance  ' of capital subscribed by them.:  One of these  urifortunes complains of the  neglect  of the  j provincial government authorities to take cog-  inizance of the wholesale gambling in speculative railway stock which  the management  of  1.50 the company years ago foisted upon the stockholders, and demands that the estate of every  director, past and present, responsible- in any  way for the scandalous speculations  indulged  in should be made to pay to the fullest extent  possible.    He asks, as hundreds of other victims are asking, what the,attorney-general or  other.authority is going to do. Mr. Lucas may  as  well  face the issue'now as later on.    The  people want to know why the Dominion Permanent, after its unsound condition had been  demonstrated by its own returns, made under  .the  law  to  the  registrar of loan companies,  was   permitted   to  continue  to  do business.  They want  to  know whether the legislation  protecting investors in loan company stock is  a safeguard or a farce. * And   they  intend   to  have an answer to these questions.  fz  Do Not Neglect Your  ==^\  F YOU are suffering from eye-strain oi\  have trouble in reading or sewing, call  and have  your eyes examined.

J  IN   THE   S0PREME   COURT OF BRITISH  COLUMBIA  IN   PROBATE  Italian soldiers iri the higlrAlps have done  must of their cooking over ration heaters that  their women at home made by rolling old  newspapers into tight rolls and boiling- them  in paraffin.  During the next four or five months food  conservation on this*continent and among their  own people must be almost the sole hope of  the allied nations in Europe and of friendly  neutrals. No effort that can be made by the  people of North America can add any considerable amount of food to the available supplies before next fall. Stocks are dangerously  depleted, particularly in the case of cereals  and meats. The problem is to "stretch" these  supplies over the interval until this year's  crops are harvested. While preparing for increased production, we must also do our utmost to help our allies over the next few  months, when starvation will be threatened  them dangerously.  The United States food administration does  dot confine its work to that country. For example, it is shipping fifteen hundred farm  tractors to France to help in the spring ploughing there: The need of such help is evident,  for in 1917 the' area sown to crops in the un-  invaded parts of France was only 30,742,157  acres, whereas in 1913 it was 40,657,293 acres.  Three .years ago English manufacturers  looked on the introduction of women into machine shops as:���������one of the horrors of war. This  year finds a million women workers in the  munition plants of that country, and the employers have so completely changed their attitude that they almost invariably hire women  in preference to unskilled men. Of the 15,000  workes in the largest English factory for making explosives, 11,000 are women.  IN THE .'MATTER'of the Estate of  Mary F.

If you care for heavy hair, that glistens with beauty and is radiant- with  life; has an incomparable softness and  is fluffy and lustrous, try Danderine.  Just one application' doubles tlie  beauty of your hair, besides it immediately dissolves every particle of  dandruff. You can not have nice heavy,  healthy hair if you have dandruff. This  destructive scurf robs the hair of its  lustre, its strength and its very life,  and if not overcome it produces a fever-  ishness and itching of the scalp; the  hair ������oots famish, loosen and die; then  the hair falls out fast.

A preacher, who was in tbe habit  of taking his wife with him   on   his  preaching apointments, said on   arrival at the chapel   in   the   country  towd:    "My  dear,  you go in there;  you   will   be  all  right.    Ir must go  round to the vestry."   Iu the   vestibule the wife was met   by  a   kind  hearted steward, who conducted her  to a seat.  At the close of the service  the same kind-hearted steward gave  her a hearty shake of the hand, adding how pleased he would be  to see  her  at   the  service   each   Sunday.  Then, whispering,   he  said:    "But,  let me tell you, we don't get a duffer  like this   in the pulpit   every   Sun-"  day."  A Li a tup asked for something to  tat at a farmhouse. v'"Are you a  goo"d Christian?" asked the farmer.  ���������'Can'tyou see?" answered the man.  "Look at the holes worn in the  knees of my pants. What do they  prove?" He was promptly given a  good dinner, which'he ate and then  turned to go. "Well, well!" exclaimed the farmer; "what made  those holes in the back of your  pants?" "Backsliding," replied the  tramp, as he hurried away.  Cause for Suspicion  When the train, with a tromenclous  crash, came to a full stop between  srations, a worried-looking man  stopped a brakeman who was rushing  dewn the track and demanded to  know the worst.  "What is it? An accident?"   .  "Some one pulled the communication cord," was the reply. "The'engineer pnt on the brakes too quickly,  and one of the cars left the raTls. It  will take us four hours to clear the  line."  "Four hours!" exclaimed the passenger. "But I'm to be married today!"      '���������"  The brakeman turned on him with  instant suspicion. "Look here," ho,  demanded, "you aren't the man who  pulled that cord, are you?"  A Nature Study  ''What  is   that   noise?" asked   little  James,  Out walking in the park; '  "That noise you hear," his father said,  "Is but/the dogwood's bark.

"The Canadians in France,"  A Great War Map  Canadian homes will no longer have  diflicnlty   in  following  the-Canadian  troops in France. There has just been  issued   a   map   of the European war  area that clearlj*- shows every point of  interest  that  has been mentioned in  dispaches since the   Canadian   forces  first landed in France..   It   has   been  made especially for the great Canadian   weekly, the   Family   Herald and  Weekly   Star   of Montreal, and is a  credit indeed to   Caudian   enterprise.  It   is a   marvel of  detail and yet not  crowded.    It   is   in 'four colors  and  about 2|-x3;}*feet and  folded   into   a  very neat cover, about   5x10   inches.  The map is surrounded by a border of  the   regimental    badges  and   coat of  arms  of  nearly   every battalion that  left Canada, from   Halifax   to   Vancouver.    Every important  point  can  be recognized at once.    That  portion  of the map covering   France  is   in  a  soft color with   names   of   towns  and  battle scenes in   black,   easily   recognizable.    The map is endoijod by returned military experts as most   complete aud accurate in detail. The map  could not be produced, except in such  large quantities as The Family Herald  will    use, at  less   than  two dollars a  copy, yet it can   be   h;:d   absolutely  free with The Family Herald.  The publishers of The Family Herald and Weekly Star for several  months back have been fighting hard  against the necessity of increasing  their subscription rates, but eventu  ally had to come to it like most other  papers. The increase, however, is a  mere trifle���������twenty five cents a year,  making their new rate $1.25���������and  with the year's subscription they will  include a copy of this great war map  free of charge. This is certainly a generous offer, and one that Canadians  will appreciate. Many expected a  much larger increase in tho subscription price of The Family Herald, and  are surprised at the small extra  amount charged.  Tho enormous circulation of The  Family Herald and Weekly Star  should be still greater when tin's offer  becomes known.
