ISSUED TWICE A WEEK
The City" Council
Promises to Illuminate for the Street
Carnival

them as at present.
On motion of Aid. Feeney the city
clerk was authorized to assure Senator Hampden that the city would
illuminate and decorate the streets
during the week of the street carnival which be proposes to give. ;
West Ward Residents Want Better Police Protection-
provements in the Fire Department Suggested
and Discussed at Length.
-Im-
The regular meeting cf thc council was held last night in the city
council chamber. Mayor Hammar,
Aid. McCallum, Clements, MeNee,
Hutton and Feeney were present.
A communication wag received
from I. A, Dinsmore, captain of fire
teapi No. 3, West ward, suggesting
that the city put the fire protection
of that ward in better shape. He
suggested a fire alarm system, so
tbat in case of fire the brigade could
lie called together at once, instead of
being compelled to run around and
givethe alarm'to each member, thus
wasting a lot of valuable time; also,
a lighter hose reel and hose should
be placed at their disposal, as the
present one is the heaviest and most
cumbersome that there is in the service, life also suggested the clearing away of a quantity of large
stones iftiich were scattered along on
the streets and greatly impeded the
progress of the hose team in going
to fires, and lastly, he thought it
was necessary to have two hose rfcels
in that end of thc city, as with but
onovtbere was too long a run to make
to some parw'of the city fioni the
the present location.
Aid. McCallum said the suggestions of Mr. Dinsmore were timely,
and he thought it was ii matter for
immediate attention. He noticed at
the lire the other night that thegen'
oral alarm had to be given by going
through the streets' and awakening
tbe members in order to get them together to run thc hose cart to the
scene ofthe fire. There should be
some system of alarm that would
awaken the whole neighborhood, and
if there was a lighter hose and reel
obtainable it should be placed in the
West ward, where at nny time there
might have to be a mile-run made,
and it would have to be pulled by
hand, bile in thc East end there
was a team to haul-the hose wagon
Mayor Hammar thought too much
could uot be done for lire protection
The bell tbe city had could not bo
heard three blocks away, if the per
son happened to be in tbe house.
Mr. Dinsmore stated that ho was
not making demands on the city,
but only suggestions. He mentioned
the fact thuf there was not a helmet
in the department in the event of a
bad lire necessitating protection to
thc bead. There should also be
some rubber coats for the firemen,
On motion of Aid. Clements the
whole master was referred to the fire,
water and light committee to mnke
any recommendations deemed proper and to deal with the question.
Aid. .McCallum drew attention to
the fact tbat the people in the ward
he represented had asked him to use
his influenced to have a night watchman employed for tho West ward,
now that railway construction was
L. M. Denny has rented the C. P.
R. hotel, near the C. P. R. depot, from
Wm. Graham, nnd intends opening

going on, bringing in a large floating
population to that portion of the
city. He stated that he was not ask
ing for it for himself, but for the
people in the ward he represented,
and he thought it was only reasonable to give them police protectio .
During the past quiet time 8 it h id
not been necessary, but now that so
many strangers were flocking in
there should be a good man placed
on duty for 12 hours out of the 24,
and when off duty he could be summoned if ocia-iion required. '"
Mayor Hammar replied by saying
that the police commissioners had
been considering the matter of placing good man on duty at that end,
and that in a few days they would
meet and deal with the question.
Aid. Feeney reported that he had
looked into the matter of a sidewalk
to Holy Trinity church, and as u result he thought one should be built.
He had found several property ow n-
ers who were willing to pay for it
in front of their properties.
Aid. McCallum thought the property owners should send in a petition
in the regular way nsking for the
sidewalk.
Aid. McCallum wished to know
who was going to pay for the new
sidewalk now being laid in front of
the Club saloon. The mayor replied
that his attention ht.d been drawn lo
it by parties on the street and he interviewed L. A. Manly, who owned
the property, about it. Mr. Manly
said he was putting it down at his
his own expense, and further stated
that he would do it to the satisfnc
tion of the city council.
Aid. Clements suggested that all
thc sidewalks in the city needed repairing, ns in some localities they
were in had shape nt present. The
rest of the aldermen agreed with M
Clements, and a resolution was
adopted instructing the board of
works to put ten men at work at once
to make the necessary repairs.
The Granby street sidewalk to the
residence of Geo. A. Fraser wns then
discussed. Aid. McCullum expressed
himself in favor of building it, as he
thought it was necessary to have a
sidewalk on the other side of the
river leading the smelter, and on his
motion a resolution wns passed authorizing the board of works to call
for tenders to have it built.
A lengthy resolution was lead nnd
adopted respecting taxation of railway property within the city limits,
anda petition accompanied it asking
the provincial government 1,0 cancel
certain clauses in the Railway Act
which takes away the power of the
the city through which the railways
run to tax the right of way, station
nnd other property, nnd allow the
cities to have power to collect tho
taxes and retain revenues instead of

Andrews (& McDowell Will Break Ground on the Smelter
Spur in a Day or Two—Local News of the
City During Past Four Days.
Prompt Response of Brigade
Saves Much Valuable
Property.
Andrews & McDowell, \nho have
the contract for the Granby spur
and the first mile and half of the
Phoenix branch, are locating their
camp on the Rankin ranch, near
W. H. P. Clement's new residence.
They will moye their horses out today, and will be at work in a few
days now.
What   undoubtedly would have
been a serious conflagration had it
not been for the prompt turn-out at
the fire brigade occurred last Friday.
night  at  a  few minutes after 11
o'clock in   the C.P.R. yards.   Th«
night watchman was tho first to din-
cover that flames were issuing from
a   boxcar containing   merchandise,
He ut once gave the alarm, and in a
sho t time the upper town hose team
was on the scene.   The  boys got a
stream playing on the flames just as
tie.'  were about to spread to some
a lj, ining cars.   The Westward fire
boys were followedafew minutes later
by thc main fire brigade, which in the
short spnee of lo minutes from the
time the alarm was sent ill  from  I.
A. Dinniore's house  were  on the
spot, and soon had the second stream
playing on the fire.   The ears which
were  on  fire  stood  alongside the
freight sheds, and were coupled onto
several cars   loaded  with coal, and
for 16 minutes the boys had a hard
time to confine the flames to the two
cars already on fire.  Had there been
a strong wind blowing it would have
been  impossible   to have saved the
freight  sheds,   station  nnd a large
number of cars iu the yards loaded
with coal and merchandise, besides
three warehouses belonging to private parties which stand on the right
of way close to  the   freight  sheds.
Thc dangerous part ofthe lire fur the
firemen wus the amount of acids and
oil and other inflammable material
in the car where the lire broke  out.
Explosion  followed  explosion, and
when the lire reached the oil drums
the flames shot high into theairand
the gases from tho acids nearly overcame  some  of  the firemen.   The
total loss is about S1000.   The goods
destroyed were mostly consigned to
local linns, including J. II. Hudson,
Jeff   Davis iS Co., and the Chinese
store, which hnd a large quantity of
rice and firecrackers burned.   The
balanced of the goods were for Greenwood linns.   The firo.is supposed to
have originated from tbe four cases
of    acids   which   were    consigned
to   the   Ii. ('. copper  company   at
Greenwood.   Two cars  were badly
damaged by tl"1 fire, and two   partially.
Four carloads of horses, several
carloads of supplies and a large contingent of men arrived by last night's
Great Northern express. The station presented a metropolitan appearance, and crowds of people were
to be seen moving in all directions.

WHY (10 EAST
Over the sun-bvmed, sage brush
and alkali plains, when you may
just ns well take a delightful, cool
and comfortable ride tbrough the
heart of the Rocky Mountains in
view of the grandest scenery on the
American continent?
This you can do by traveling on,
the Rio Grande system, the far-
famed "Scenic Line of the World,"
the only transcontinental line -Missing through Salt f*ake City, Glen-
wood Springs, Leadville, Colorado
Springs and Denver enrouto to eastern points.
Three daily express trains make
close connections with all trains east
and west, and afford a choice of five
distinct routes of travel. The equipment of these trains is thc best, including free reclining chair cars,
standard and tourist sleepers, a perfect dining car service, and also
personally conducted excursion cars,
each in charge of a competent guide,
whose business is to look after the
comfort of his guests. No more
pleasant und inexpensive means of
crossing Ihe continent can be found
than is provided by these excursions.

GOOD SERVICE is composed of two elements
—excellence of the work and promptness in
the execution. Had 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 huve shown. Our
customers will testify that we have also learned it
in practice.

Mark Twain and his wife have leased

about halfway -bet-wen Florence and
Tiesole, and connected with the modern
town and the old Etruscan stronghold by
a line of electric ears.
_ That much-quoted superstition, "th-rei
times a bridesmaid never a bride," seems,
to have no terrors for Alice Roosevelt,
who has accepted an invitation to servf
in this capacity at the approaching marriage of Miss Lille Mcf.'auley nnd Mr.
Woleott Tuckenuan, which will tfukf
place in Washington, D.C., November 25

THE   TORONTO1
DAILY NEWS
•
AND THE
.FOR   ONLY..
$2.25 a Year
A radical change from old methods and prices has been made by
the Toronto Daily News. The eyes
of the newspvper world have
heen upon The News for the past few
months, during which time several
departures have 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 of $1.00 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.
Hut just as the dollar magazine has
taken hold of the people, so, we venture to predict, The 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
lie paper.
We have arrangements concluded
which enables us to club the Toronto
News with our own paper at $2.25 a
year in advance. Such a Combination presents many unique features
—our semi-weekly giving you nil
the home and district news, and
the big 12-pngc dailv keeping you in
touch with events nil over the world.
Send us your subscription to The
News, or if you would like to sec
the paper first, write us and wc will
secure a sample copy.
