TWICE-A-WEEK
The City~ Council
The Finance Committee Submits Its
'   Report.
Water arid Light Committee's Report Is Finally Adopted
After a Long Discussion—City Auditors Must
Verify the Financial Statement.
The regular weekly meeting of the
city council was held in the council
chamber last evening, Mayor Hammar presiding, and Aid. Glepente,
Hutton,' McLellan, McCallum and
McNee being present
The finance committee submitted
the following report:
To His Worship the Mayor and Members of the Conned:
GENTLEMEN-j-Your committee appointed to investigate the services
required in the city office, beg-to report that they have gone thoroughly into the details of thc matter and
viewed the situation from the Standpoint of the volume of. work to be
(lone inside and outside thetjffice,
and also from precedents established
by former councils.
We find that the work to be done
is as follows: *
City clerk and work incidental
thereto.
City typewriting.
Bookkeeping for water and light.
Collecting rates monthly—345
consumers.   .
Attending to requirements of consumers and inspecting and investigating complaints and disputes, as
commissioner of water and light.
Clerk of licensing board and all
work incidental to same.
Receiving and depositing all
monies jviyable to thc city.
Paying all authorized accounts
and filing vouchers and records; collecting revenue for the city, license,
poll tax, taxes, etu., and doing city
bookkeeping.
Assessment—Milking individual
assessment by personal inspection;
preparing rolls; sending out notices
of assessment.
Tax Rolls—Preparing samo and
sending out notices of same; attending to tax sales; making report to
council monthly; report at end of
terms and also final report.     .   -
We aro of the opinion that with all
this work entrusted to ono man in
business hours, part of it must necessarily be neglected and other parts
of it would have to bo' hired done by
the piece, at an approximate cost of
$800 a year; add to this the increased
salary of one man, and wo think the
change would not be bo economically or satisfactorily done. Ac'
cordingly, we recommend that two
men be employed in the office, with
-the work as at present divided,
and that in addition to their
present work the treasurer check off
the water and light every six months
and report any discrepancies to the
council, and in order to equalize the
work at the time of such checking,
the clerk assist the treasurer in other
matters pertaining to his office; also
that the clerk and treasurer assist
the committees at such times as their
own work does not demand their
immediate attention. We also recommend that the council pass a
resolution making the office hours
from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on all week
days, and from 7:510 a.m. to 8 p.m.
on the 10th of each month, and that
the office bo open for business at all
times during these hours.
A reference to the precedents by
former councils the more firmly
convinces us that our report and
recommendations are consistent wilt,
economy, and that it would not be
in the best interest of the city to reduce the office staff at present
In 1897 the office had three men
—clerk, treasurer nnd assessor.
In 1898 the office had four men—
clerk, treasurer, assessor and water
and light commissioner.
In 1899 the office had four men
and paid 8128.80 for typewriting.
In 1900 the office had three men
and paid §110 for typewriting.
In 1901 the office bad two men
and paid $78.65 for typewriting.
In 1902 the office hnd three men
and paid $100 for typewriting.
In 190S the office hnd two men
and paid $11.40 for typewriting.
We would recommend that in
1904 two men do nil the work ofthe
office,, including the extra work referred to and all the lypi writing,
and that the salaries of these posi-
iions be reduced to $100 per month
each.
We futher recommend that the
salary of the city solicitor be ?50 per
month.
Respectfully submitted,
Neil MiCaixum,
A. L. Cl.EJIE.NTS,
Finauce Committee.
On motion the report was received. Neither the mayor nor the
aldermen believed in biking hasty
action, and it wus, sousequently,
laid over till the next meeting in
order to afford the members tin opportunity to digest its contents.
An application for city water for
fire protection was received from the
opera house management.
The water and light committee
was authorized to purchase two barrels of 32 c.p. lights.
On motion of Aid. McCullum, the
city clerk was instructed to notify
the city auditors that tbeir financial
statement had heen challenged,
.and that they appear before the
council at its next meeting to either
verify tho same or acknowledge
its incorrectness. In speaking to the
motion, Mr. McCallum stated that it
is the duty df the council to see
that the statement of the city's finan-
cies is correctly put before the ratepayers.
The report of tho water and light
committee was   reconsidered,  and,
after a lengthy discussion, in which
the mayor nnd nearly all the aldermen took part, was adopted as submitted to the council two weeks ngo.
Aid. McLellan reiterated his statement that he'did not think Engineer Reid'swagesof $12.'' per month
were too high. Mr. Reid's had two
boilers to look after, besides doing
all the repair work of his department He was a good mechanic,
and could easily get $4 per day at
the smelter. He had to be on duty
the major portion of the 24 hours
every day. The repair work he did
if sent out to be done, would be
quite nn item in itself. The mayor
snid he made no special kick against
paying Reid $125 per month—a
•■nod mechanic was worth that sum,
providing there was enbugh
work for him to do. But if
the engineer was to be paid
his old salary, he didil't see the justice in reducing thc city electrician's.
Both positions were of equal importance, and he didn'tbelievein making flesh of one man and fowl of another. At present K per cent of
the city's receipts was paid out in
salaries, and be thought economy
should be practiced wherever possible. Aid. McLellan, replying to the
mayor's .remarks, stated that the
reason the committee had recommended reduction in the electrician's
sa|nry was that only a portion of his
time was tnken up with city work,
nnd that he bad a chance to mnke
something by doing jobs for private
citizens, and also out of the sale o
his electrical supplies. Aid. Cij-
ments said he had at first favored a
reduction in the city engineer's
salary, but nfter making enquiries
among praottcal men bad ehang d
his mind, and now concurred in the
report ol; the committee. He didn't
see what else tbe city could do at
present. Aid. McCallum expressed
practically the same view* as Mr.
Clements. He added .that tbeie
were various rumors afloat, and he
bad also been made aware of a good
deal of kicking by people who discussed civic nlfairs on street corners.
The council should pay no attention
to this talk; the aldermen should
investigate the merits of the questions that came before tbem, nml
then act for the best Interests of the
community. The biggest kickers
were often those who bad no inteiesl
iu the eity, Mayor Hnmiiiiir snid he
had been asked even by some of tbe
aldermen why he had not apbointcd
a special eoniuiitee to Investigate the
salary question. He had not done
so because he did not wish to insult
the standing committees. He agreed
with A Itl. McCallutii as to the status
of the kickers. Often the most vociferous kickers were people who
didn't pay their taxes. On motion
of Aid. Clements and McCallum,
thc report of the water and light
committee was adopted.
The rules adopted by the mayor
and water and light committee, providing that henceforth no city employe is to be furnished with trie
water and light, were endorsed by.
the council.
The eity clerk was instructed to
collect back water rates from a recent city employe in the usual way.
The council then went into committee of the whole for the consideration of the by-law governing tht; reconstruction of building.

Will It Materialize?
Greenwood People See Visions of Another Smelter
It Is Reported That If James Breen Cannot Secure the
Boundary Falls Smelter He Will Build One
at the Mouth of Eholt Creek.
James Breen, one of the best
known and most successful smelter-
men on the continent, has returned
to his old love, thc Boundary country, says the Greenwood Times.
Breen is not here in flesh, but he is
making arrangements to either purchase or build a smelter on Boundary Creek. A few years ago Breen
secured control of the Dominion
Copper company and spent considerable money in developing the
properties of the company. Ho then
figured on tl.e erection of a smelter
for the treatment of Dominion Copper company ores, and went so far
as to secure an option on a smelter
site at the mouth at Eholt creek,
about one and one-half miles above
Greenwood. He went to Toronto to
discuss the pKQJect with the officials
of thc company, but an agreement
could not be reached. Mr. Breen
then turned his attention toother interests and the mines of tho company remained idle for some time.
When tbe Boundary Falls smelter
-closed down it was announced that
the Dominion Oqpper. company was
negotiating to secure the Boundary
Falls smelter and consolidate the interests of the Montreal & Boston
Copper company with those of Dominion Copper company. It, is jet
probable that these negotiations will
be carried to a successful issue, but
if not the Dominion Copper company has decided to resume operations at its mines, anv Mr. Breen
will go ahead with the erection of a
smelter. The option for the site is
still in force, and should the negotiations for the Boundary Falls smelter fail, tbe work of erecting the
smelter will be rushed. The site at
the' m.uth of Eholt creek is an
ideal one. There is plenty of water
and ample room for tint slug dump.
It is the nearest point to the mines
where a suitable ;ito can be secured.
The principal mines i.f the company
are the Brooklyn and Stoiiiwindcr.
On the Brooklyn over 4000 fi ot of
work has been done, and a great
deal of work on the S-itoniwindct'.
There is a fully equipped plant installed and over 250,000 tonsof shipping ore in sight. The ore is easily
treated, nml when tbe smelter is secured n large force of men will be
be employtd not only at Phoenix
but at the smelter as well. Thc necessary spurs have beeij laid to the
mines by the C. P. R.
* *   *
Active development work has
been resumed on the Blue .lay, one
of tho best knwn claims in Skylark
camp, located about two miles below Phoenix.
* *   *
W. Newton, one of the owners of
the  McKinley claim, in   Franklin
camp, says development work will
be resumed this spring. The McKinley has an immense surface
showing, and thc values in copper
and gold are about $50 per ton
across a ledge that has been stripped
25 feet.
* *   *
The foundations for the electric
machinery at the Mother Lode smelter are nearly completed, and the
general work of improvement and
preparing for the installaiion of the
two stands of copper converters is
progressing.
*   * *
The C. P. R. has reduced thc price
of the haulage of ores from Phoenix
to' the Bineltcrs at Grand Forks,
Greenwood and Bounday Falls from
37' to 30 cents per ton.

"He must be hoth truly religious and

is the me which devastated their city
over a year ago. These plans provide
for a sea-wall, to be built on the beach,

of the entire city. It Is a mammoth
undertaking, which will cost the already Impoverished city millions, and
Involve considerable additional outlay

...FOR   ONLY..
$2.25 PER YEAR
A radical change from old methr
oils and prices lias been made by-
thc Toronto Daily News. The eyes
of the newspvper world have
been upon The News for the past few
months, during which'time several
departures hnve been made which
have given that paper a widespread
reputation for enterprise and originality. This latest move is to place
The News at the price ot 81.00 a
year by mail. Only a deep-founded
belief in the future success of The
News could lead the publishers to
make such a reduction in price.
But just as the dollar magazine has
tnken hold ol the people, so, we venture to predict, The News will secure a vast and ever-increasing circulation, based not only on tbe popular price al which it is sold, but
mainly'upon the intrinsic merits of
be paper.
We have arrangements concluded
which eifables us to club tbeToronto
Nrjivs with our own paper at $'2.25 a
year in advance. Suoh a combination presents many uniquo features
—our semi-weekly giving you all

Why the Czar Wears a Beard.

*Wlult! The rest may be . Imagined.
Therefore, to avoid the danger of having his throat cut by one of his loving
subjects, his Imperial Majesty is compelled to go through life with a beard,
which he has trimmed as seldom as
possible, because he Is Inclined to shy
away from shears as well as from razors. It Is said that the royal whiskers
never are trimmed, save In the presence of four tried and true grand 'masters of the court, who stand ready td

If he dares to make a suspicious move.
Moreover, In order to- further lecreaat
the safety ot hla mom exalted Majesty,
the office of royal barber has been
made hereditary In the family of Gue-

to be very loyal, and. of, course, being
ennobled for their eervlcea as trimmers

that they will deliberately cause trouble by using dull shears or nipping the

short-sighted Czar! He should consider
