Laws Pass Their Third
Reading
The regular bi-weekly meeting of
the city council was held in the
council chamber last night, the
mayor and all the aldermen being
in attendance.
A communication from Dave
Woodh ead asked for eight hours for
tho men employed on the city
street, at the old rate of wages. It
was pointed out that the city paid
.'10 cents an hour—higher than the
going rate of wages for common labor. If the workmen on the streets
wished to reduce their day's pay by
only working eight hours, no serious
objection would lie offered. On motion, the clerk wus instructed to answer the letter, telling Mr. Wood-
head that the city paid more than
the going rate of wages.
A letter from the Kettle River
Lumber company informed the
council thai a gust of wind had carried one of the city's cheques into
the river, and asked for a duplicate
of the siiine. The matter was referred to the finance committee,with
power to act.
The fire chief's monthly report
was read, received and ordered filed.
A'communication from the Phoenix Pioneer, offering 8-50 worth of
space in its 'holiday edition, wi.s
read. On motion, the clerk was instructed to inform Mr. Willcox that
too council did not feel justified in
spending any more money for advertising purposes.
The lt>,lowing accounts were ordered paid:

Aid. Clements, chairman of the
water and light committee, reported
that the eiimuiittee had entered into
an agreement with the Boundary
Iron Works und the Kettle River
Lumber company for the extension
of the electric light system to their
plant* In the Ruckle addition. 'Ihe
Boundary Iron Works desires to install a 10-hoi>c|inwer electric motor,
but as it is .to ho u*ed only occa
sinnally the linn is only lo pay for
six horsepower, at 85 per horsepower per month, In addition to
this, the firm is also to take a number of lights during the winter
months. The company agrees to
make a deposit of 8150, which is to
be refunded by Ihe eity in light and
[lower. The Kettle River Lumber
company only wishosliglits at pros-
e t, but later un may also install a
motor. The coilipany utters, to furnish the [niles fur the new line, the
cost of the same to be deducted from
its light bills. The contract, which
was read by the clerk, is to remain
in force until 1907. Mr. Clements
stated that there was a prospective
revenue of $00 per month from the
now line, and that $150 would cover
the expense of putting it in, with
the exception of thc cost of the
transformers: Aid. Brown said the
Boundary Iron Works needed lights
at present in the worse way. The
contract had been drafted by the
city solicitor, and should prove satisfactory to the council. The mayor
didn't wish to be understood as opposed to the contract, but he wanted
to see the city protected. The con
tract was binding on the part of the
city, but not on the part of the com
pany. It would cost the city about
8500 for transformers for the new
liue. If the residents of tho Ruckle
addition wanted light on the same
basis as it is furnished the ratepayers of the city, it would be the most
unjust proposition ever brought before the council. On motion of Aid.
McCallum and Henniger, the recommendation of the water and light
committee in reference to extending
the city's electric light system to thc
Boundary Iron Works and the Kettle River Lumber company's planing mill was accepted, and the committee was instructed to complete
the line, thc mayor being authorized
to sign the contract.
On motion of Aid. Crossen and
Brown, thc water and light committee was instructed to extend the
electric light line to Mr. Duffy's
residence.
Aid. Brown, of the health and relief, reported a case at the Cottage
hospital that would require some
city assistance.
The chairman of thc cemetery
Committee, Aid. Brown,thought that
lour grave plots at the eity cemetery
should   bring   $1*3, and   two-grave
plots $6. The mayor thought that
a cemetery by-law should be brought
in.
The mayor reported the result ul'
his interview with the chief commissioner of lands and works respecting
the new bridge across the Kettle
river at this point. The result of
this interview was printed in The
Sun la«t week.
Aid. Crossen was granted leave to
introduce tlio mayor's remuneration
by-law, which was advanced to its
third reading witli very little discussion. The by-law provides for tlio
remuneration of the mayor for the
year 1005 to the amount'of 8-100 out
of tiie annual revenue uf Ihe city.
Aid. Crossen was granted leave to
introduce the aldermen's indemnity
by-law. This measure provides for
an indemnity uf $:'00 tn each alderman, with 85 deducted for each absence .vith**ut leave from meeting. A
little mure opposition was developed
tu this bylaw, but it was finally advanced tu the same stage as its predecessor. Aid. Brown thought it
would have luokrd better if some
other alderman had brought in the
by-law. Aid. Crossen replied that lie
brought it in because he believed the
principle was right, and, as he had
not gone before the people, he was
violating no election pledges, Ho
explained that the salary was not exclusively for attendance of meetings,
but tu indemnify the chairmen nf
the verinus committtees fur their loss
of time. Aid. Henniger said he
thought 8120 would be sufficient salary, and parenthetically remarked that
if he were siirejthc by-law would carrv I
he would vote against it. Aid. McCallum wanted the bv-luw   laid   over'
till the next mooting, when he might'
vote against it. Both ho and Aid.
Clements had told the electors that
they would vote with the majority on
this question. Aid. Hutton said the
salaries were too high, and thought
$250 to the mayor and 8100 to the
aldermen would be about riglit. He
didn't see any sense in being as econo
mical as possible for a whole year, and
then vote away .$1700 in salaries at
one time. The mayor explained ihat
last year, after the tines had been deducted, some of the aldermen received
as low as 875.
The ward division by-law was advanced to its third reading. Sixth
street is to be the "dividing line between the East and West wards, each
ward being entitled to three aldermen.
The council then adjourned.
county, Constable Dinsmore arrested
him last week. Joseph elected for a
speedy trial, tmd pleaded guilty. He
was sentenced to twenty-three months
with hard labar in the county court
jail at Kamloops. Constable Neshitt,
of Penticton, left for Kamloops whsli
the convicted man last Saturday.

The Canada Gazette has given notice nf the disallowance by the. Dominion government of "an act further to amend the supreme court
act" of British Columbia. This act,
chapter 18, was passed by the British Columbia legislature on April 8,
1905. It wns introduced by theat-
tiirney general and provides ns follows: "Persons to be appointed
judges shall lie burristers-at-law of
not less than ten years' standing, of
which ten years they shall hnve
been fur five years actively engaged

Why That Weariness?
You're uneasy, restless, without appetite. Still worse, you are fliin and
fagged out. Work must be done, but
where is the strength to come from?
Make ynur blood nutritious and you
will have lots nf strength. Ynur only
hope is Ferrozone, an instant blood-
maker, blood-purifier, blood-enricher.
It brings keen appetite, digests food,
and supplies nutrition for building up
all the bodily tissues. Ferrozone makes
muscle and nerve-fibre, increases your
weight, instills a reserve of energy
ihto the body that defies weariness or
exhaustion from any cause. To have
virility and healthy vigor use Ferrozone, which all dealers sell in BOo

she imagines she looks.
An Irishman Rays it's fooly to fight

A man will make more trouble
about a slight cold in his head than a

A bachelor's idea of a hero is a married man who refuses to admit that he
wishes he had remained single.
It takes nerve for a widow with
children who are married for the second time to be jealous of her husband.
Many people-seek their own good,
and then persuade themselves that it
is for the good of others.
A good woman thinks less of herself than of others. Shi! thinks herself of small consequence. A man
agrees with her generally.
Some feliows will bet you "a thousands dollars" when they are at the

There is nothing that equals a woman's scorn—especially if you step on
it in a crowded street car.
Many a man fails to appreciate his
happy home because it is happy only
duriug his absence.
One of the unsatisfactory thinks of
this world is a sensible love letter.
It is a good plan never to run yourself down. Others will cheerfully do
it foi you.
A girl in love often is unable to
express her thoughts—but it is quite
different after marriage.

Re ricked Op (be Hall.
One afternoon when voyaging to India K. of K. wns dozing In his deck
chair, when a little lady of three or
four summers let her ball fly Into his
face, whence it rolled to his feet.
Lord Kitchener woke up, snys M. A.
P., nnd turned upon the child thnt
basilisk gaze before which the hearts
of strong men hnve often turned to water. But the child wns in nowise
abnBlied. "Pick up my ball." sbe snid
Imperntively. Lord Kitchener frowned nnd answered not. "Pick up my
ball," reiterated the smnll damsel insistently. "Hnve not you got a nurse?"
snid Lord Kitchener In an awful voice.
The Interrogative mood wns answered
by the lmperntive. "Pick up my ball."
Lord Kitchener looked round despairingly, but re-enforcements were not in
sight "Where Is your mother?" he
said weakly. "Pick up my ball," repeated tbe girl. The ultimatum wns
deivered In crescendo tones, which suggested the imminence of something
worse to follow, and Lord Kitchener
meekly compiled. Then he fled incontinently to the smoke room.

Early Christian Cnralnsra.
Cursing, It may be observed, continued In full vigor in Christian times, often harmonizing 111 with our modern
notions of Christianity. Some are almost horrible In their ferocity, as when
the violator of the tomb Is told that
"he will be accursed of God forever"
or that "he will give account to God,
wbo will judge the quick and the
dead." There is one which perhaps
will rather provoke a smile. The offender Is threatened with tbe curse
of all the fathers of the Nlcene council. "He that throws rubbish In this
inclosure," the Inscription runs, "has
the anathema from the 318 fathers as
an enemy of God."
Sidney Smith once alluded to a forty
parson power—of preaching, If we remember aright—but the anathematizing ability of 318 Nlcene fathers Is a
much mora appalling Idea, and there
Is a ludicrous contrast between this
terrible but vague penalty and the very
prosaic and familiar offense.—Maimll-
lan's Magazine.
Regardless to the tyranny of the letter "r," oysters are only eaten during

Often the candidate gets a ran for his
