ISSUED TWICE A WEEK
The City" Council
A Number of Communications Were
Received and Read.
The Rossland City'Council Wants Taxes Collected on Railway Property Within Incorporated Cities to
Go to the Municipalties.
The regular weekly meetingo! the
city council was held last night in
the council chamber. Aid. Feeney,
Clements, McCallum, Martin, Hutton and McNee were present. The
innyor being absent, Aid. Feeney
was voted to the chair.
A communication wns received
from E. C. Fryer and C. A. S. Atwood, wardens of Holy Trinity
church, asking the city to lnyaside-
walk from Bridge street to the
church. Mr. Atwood was present and
addressed thc council. He said all
the other churches in thc city had
sidewalks to them, and he thought
there should be one to Holy
Trinity church. Aid. Marlin replied,
saying that all the other c' ur.hes
had paid for their sidewalks, and if
this church would do so it oould
get one too, as all sidewalks had to
be constructed under the local improvement tax. On motion of Aid.
.McCallum, thc board of works was
ordered to look into thc matter and
report at the next meeting,
A communication was read from P.
T. McCallum respecting the opening
of and transfer of streets. He agrees I
to give '0 feet of the north side of
lot A, plan 70, in a line extended j
easterly with thc si<lth side of Cecil i
avenue together with that portion
of lot A, block 40, plan 72, which
lies to the north of said extended
line for street purposes, on condition that thc city gives 20 feet of the
SObool lands for said street, movchis
fence and rebuild iton said line; not
assess his property for street improvements (such as sidewalks, etc.)
on said land for the term of live
years; take over the water pipe now-
laid en said piece of land at cost,
the same to be allowed on water,
light or taxes, as ho might direct,
and convey to him that portion of
of Main street lying south of and adjoining lot A, plan 72, together with
that portion of Nelson street lying
cast of and ndjoing lots 10 and 11,
Van Ness addition, and extended
northerly to Main street along the
east side of lot A, plan 70. If preferable, he will agree that in lieu of
conveying to him those portions of
Main a.id Nelson streets referred to,
to accept one-half the value of the
40 feet mentioned (thc sa'nu to be
applied to taxes), to be valued at
the same rate as wan paid for the
school lands, or by arbitration if so
desired. The mutter was laid .over
for one week.
The following communieution was
received from the city solicitor of
Rossland:
Rossland, B. C, April 29, 1904.
To the mayor and Council of the Corporation of the City of Grand Forks.
Dear Sins:—I am requested by the
council of tho corporation of the city
of  Rossland, as its solicitor, to com
municate with you in regard to your
co-operation in submitting to ths provincial government a memorial, praying that cities in British Columbia, incorporated since 1895;may he granted
the power to tax railway lands situate
within the limits of their respective
municipalities.
As you are no doubt aware, tho
cities of Victoria, New Westminster,
Vancouver and Nanaimo have the
right, under section 116 of the Mu
nicipal Clauses Act, to tux these lands.
and the revenue derived therefrom has
bean found, through correspondence
with these cities, to amount to a very
considerable sum. The cities incorporated since 1895 have, for some reason
not easily understood, been dei'ied this
right.
The Rossland council is of the opinion that a grave injustice was done by
the passing of sub-section (a) of the
above section, and its members think
that steps fhould he forthwith taken
to secure its repeal. The ralway lands
within municipality incorporated since
1896 are taxed by the provincial government under the Railway Assessment Act and amendments thereto,
and it would appear for divers and
manifest reasons, a great injustice that
this revenue should thus lie diverted
from its legitimate channels—the
more especially as the government derives a very large revenue from taxation of personal property within the
municipalities (a right not enjoyed by
the Ontario government), and also a
taxation from the products of the
mines within the municipality—a
source of revenue not derived from the
cities enjoying the privilege of taxing
railway lands.
Already the revenue fur school purposes in this municipality, augmented
by the government per capita grant,
is Insufficient to meet, the expenditure,
and the time seems nob-far distant
when serious complications may arise
from this state of alliiirs.
The railway, iu its tortuous course
through this eity, aggregating several
miles in length, excludes a very la-ge
percentage of property from liabi ity
to municipal taxation; probably the
taxable lauds iu your municipality are
affected to a lesser extent, yet the
principle is the same, and the council
trusts that the matter may bo considered by your council, and that a
resolution may be passed condemning
the injustice and favoring the presentation of a memorial.
It might be well if your council will
insert in the preamble of your resolution particulars as to how the present
state of the law injuriously affects
your municipality, including, if need
be, those briefly referred to herein..
It is believed that the repeal of tho
sub-section referred to will receive the
hearty support of members   on   both
sides of the house. Their hands will he
itrengthened and the cause nuide
itronger by your co-operation, and it
is hoped that your council will signify
its willingness to join in the memorial,
a draft copy of which will be sent to
you to be passed through your council
and forwarded to the proper minister.
A similar request has been sent by
the Rossland municipal ouncil to the
councils of other cities in the interior
of British Columbia similarly affected.
Immediate action is advisable in view
of the likelihood of a summer session
of the legislature. Yours truly,
\V. J. Nelson,
City Solicitor.
On motion of Aid. McCallum, it
was resolved to endorse thejkiss-
land resolution, and at the next
meeting tho council could draft and
pass a resolution of its own. Mr.
McCallum said there should be no
hesitation as to what steps the council ought to take in this matter. Instead of the taxes collected on railway property within the municipal
corporation going to the provincial
exchequer, this revenue by right belonged to the city. The other aldermen agreed with bim.
SUNSET  SAUNTERINGS
C. M. Turner, manager for the
Vernon & Nelson Telephone com
pany in this city for the past four
years, will sever his connection with
that company this month, having

A Serious Accident
Joe Pounder, the well known
pioneer miner and prospector of this
district, met witt. a serious if not
fatal accident last Saturday about
noon. He, with others, was engaged in unloading ties near Lc-
quime's sawmill. It became neces-
* sary to move some cars, and while in
the act of setting a brake on one enr,
another car—which was also being
moved—butted against the one he
was on, throwing him onto a rock-
pile below and inflicting terrible injuries. Dr. Northrop was telephoned
for, and made all haste to thc scene
of the accident, where upon examination it was found thin. Mr. Founder's back had been broken nnd his
spine terribly injured. One rib was
broken, and the force of the fall had
driven it into one of his lungs. The
unfortuato man was made as comfortable as possible in the bottom of
a rig and conveyed to tho hospital,
where everything in the way of
medical skill is being done for him.
He is a single man, 54 years old. Tomorrow morning Dr. Northrop, assisted by Dr. Kingston, will perform
an operation on him at thc hospital.
Wm. Pounder, a brother of the injured man, resides up the North
Fork.

GOOD SERVICE is composed of two elements
—excellence of the work and promptness in
the execution. Bad work executed promptly is not good service—good work delivered behind
time is not good service; but the two combine to
make one of the most necessary, but hardest to obtain and often most expensive, requirements of the
twentieth century business man. That we have
learned the lesson in theory we have shown. Our
customers will testify that we have also learned it
in practice.

THE   TORONTO
IDAILYi NEWS
AND THE
TWICE-A-WEEK
..FOR   ONLY.
$2.25 PER YEAR
A radical change from old methods and prices has been made by
the Toronto Daily News. The eyes
of thc newspvper world have
been upon The News for the past few
months, during which time several
departures have been made which
have given thnt paper a widespread
reputation for enterprise and originality. Tbis latest move is to place
The News at tho price of $1.00 a
year by mail. Only a deep-founded
belief in tbe future success of Tho
News could lead the publishers to
make such a reduction in price.
But just as the dollar magazine has
taken hold of the people, so, we venture to predict, Thc News will secure a vast and ever-increasing circulation, based not only on the popular price at which it is sold, but
mainly upon the intrinsic merits of
he paper.
\Vc have arrangements concluded
which enables us to club thc Toronto
News with our own paper nt $2.'2f> a
year in advance. Such a combination presents many unique features
—our semi-weekly giving you all
thc home and district news, antl
the big 12-pnge daily keeping you in
touch with events all over the world.
Send us your subscription to The
News, or if you would like to sec

A chaperon it a luxury not within the
reach of all girls, uml the only real substitute of value is a brother. But when
a brother accepts tbis most useful office
be ia looked upon as a "makeshift," and
as a person undesirable and incompetent. Therefore, n mother takes pains
to secure for her daughter the companionship of almost anyone of her own
sex rather than a brother:
This is a gross injustice to brothers.
Any girl who has been chaperoned by her
brother will tell you that he is the best
possible person for the office. Any man
who has enjoyed the society of a young
lady under the chapeionsge of her
brother will say the same. Brothers who
have acted as chaperons say that a man
takes to the work quite naturally and
with plenty of confidence. In addition
to this evidence, It is common knowledge
that the chaperon dislikes her office, is
disliked by the young lady she chaper**
ons, and by the men who would know
the young lady.
A man is liked best ns a chaperon because he is broad-minded and generous.
He does not want to lead his sister into
the moat crowded parts of the flower-
show and talk Inanities to old bore*;
he doesn't reprove her If she dares to
say something funny. He doesn't preserve a countenance of prim severity,
and pose as the goddess of propriety.
Neither does he take his sister into the
company of undesirable men, an lady
chaperons often do; he gives audi per-j
sons a  wide  berth, and  introduces  his
little sister only to those men who are I
good, honest, whole-hearted fellows.
The  brother  chaperon  can   give    his
sister much advice thnl will be of more
use  to  her than  etiquette  books.    He
can point out the men she should not
know, and he can unhesitatingly expose
their worthlemness.    lie ean tell her a
dozen little things tb.it stamp the good
man as a good man, and a dozen others
tbat mark thc bad one for what he is.
There is no fear of a brother leading
his sister into indiscretions.   Thnt is the
last thing he would do.   Ho takes at the
-tame time a lively interest in a love affair, and does his best to leave the young
couple alone together for five minutes at
intervale.
The brother chaperon is rare, because
the only one available is he who has a
greater fondness for hi* nwn sister -than
somebody else's.—"Modern Society."
Like many Frenchmen, especially tbosi
hailing from the south of Frunee, IYpsI
dent Loubet ll very fond of those national dishes in which garlic form* an
important ingredient. Once, in Ms lawyer
days, when he was pleading in court nf
ter having partaken of some such dish,
his democratic tastes in this respect
placed him in a somewhat embarrassing
position. The presiding judge happened
to be a man of aristocratic origin und
breeding, to whom the odor of garlic Wfta
absolutely intolerable. M. Loubet rose
and began his argument. He had not
proceeded very far wben the judge wat*
observed to snill' rather uncomfortably
and to take out a perfumed handker
chief, reinforcing it a few moments later with a smelling-bottle. These measures, however, proved of nojtvnil as n
protection from tbe pungent and penetrating effluvium which emanated from
the future President of the republir. At
last, his olfactory sense .Ifing in open
rebellion, the indignant judge shouted:
"Usher, open the windows; open the
doors. For heaven's sake, let out this
abominable smell!" Since then M. Loubet, it is said, though he still preserves cmEET
lis simplicity of life, has eliminated fiar- BRIDGE O /l<KC I
