Harknes9, McDonald and Schnitter were present  at the regular meeting of the city  council on Monday evening.  A letter from Secretary D. C.  Manly, of the fire department, drew  the council's atttention to the fact  that a fire escape had not yet been  erected at the Grand Forks -hospital.  On motion of Aid. Harkness. the  council decided to take the matter  up with Dr. Kingston.  Health Officer Kingston  reported  that Mrs. W. Dacre  had   been   ad  mitted to the Grand Forks hospital,  acd that it would probably be a city  case.   The  Spanish   influenza,   he  said, was somewhat on the increase,  there being now forty cases   in   the  city.   One death had been reported.  Pte. Eanest Harrison, a returned  soldier, addressed the  council,  and  asked that the council recommend  to the attorney-general that he hold  the appointment of a  police magistrate for Grand  Forks in  abeyance  for a month, at the end of   which  time he expected to return from the  hospital at the coast, and he  would  then  put  in  an application for the  position.    On 'motion of  Aid.'McDonald, Mr. Harrison's request was  complied with.  The   chairman   of   the board of  works reported  that   he   had gone  over the Bridge street bridge   with  the provincial bridge inspector. The  inspector had not exactly condemned the bridge, but he had intimated  very strongly that a new bridge was  needed. On motion of Aid  Schnitter  and   Harkness.   the   clerk  was instructed to lequest   Road  Superintendent McCallum to procure bridge  plans from Victoria.  The chairman of the board of  works also reported that he had had  some success in experimenting with  the small road grader on street grading. Accepted.  The chairman of the water and  committee reported that the- old  wooden pipe on Victoria avenue had  been replaced by iron pipe. Accepted.  On motion of Aid. Harkness and  McDonald, the council appropriated  $100 for Christmas presents for  local soldiers now serving with the  colors overseas.

In a great many  homes where the disease exists, there is a disposition to  hide the fact, and any state-  ment as to the number of  cases in the city is therefore  mere guesswork.  Health Officer Kingston, at  the council meeting on Monday     night,   reported     forty  cases, and it is said that there  has   been   a  slight increase  since that time. Owing to the  comparatively low altitude  of  this city, the disease is not of  a very malignant nature here,  and there is no cause for alarm  at present; but the  situation  is   sufficiently  serious  to induce every citizen to make an  earnest effort   to stamp out  the pest.

Attention is directed to a recent announcement published  in the Press by the Military Service Branch, Department  of Jus^.e, regarding extensions to be granted to men  EXEMPTED  AS FARMERS.  It is pointed out that this DOES NOT IN ANY WAY  AFFECT MEN WHO HAVE BEEN ORDERED BY THE  REGISTRAR TO REPORT to Depot Battalions and who  have thereafter received leave of absence from the Military  Authorities.  Once a man has been ordered to report for duty by the  Registrar he leaves the jurisdiction of the Registrar and comes  under that of the Department of Militia and Defence, and is to  be considered as a soldier.   This applies to men of the 20 to 22  Class who have been ordered to report by the Registrar in  virtue of the cancellation of exemptions by Order-in-Council of  the 20th April last, as well as to those ordered to report in the  usual way on refusal of claim for exemption, or on expiration  of exemption granted.  All men, accordingly, who have been ordered to report, anc\  are therefore SOLDIERS, and who have subsequently been  granted  harvest  leave  by   the   military  authorities, MUST.
