In accordance with tha plans and specifications submitted at tba last meeting,  tenders had been obtained from several  local contractors. Tha lowest of these  was S5!M> for tho whole of the work as  laid down in the original plan, namely, concrete retaining walls or abutments built with a viaw of some day  reducing the length of tha bridge by  filling in behind thewallsT with earth.  The price given for an alternative plan  of merely putting in concrete mod sills  andthnber supports was ���280.  ��� Several of the aldormen seemed to bd  of tlie opinion that the latter arrange  ment, though not so permanent aB the  other would probably B��rve the pur-  pole for many years, and avoid the  extra expense at the present time.  Aid. Harvey, however, contended that  the former, though involving st Bret  a greater outlay, would in tho and bo  more economical.  Finally Mr. P. W. Groves was called  in for a consultation, and it waB   de  oided toplaee ths matter in hia hands  to report to the council ss to the best  plan to put Uie bridge into a satisfactory state of repair.  It waa decided to call for tenders for  .he operation of ths street sprinkler  for the season.  Aid. Harvey reported that hia com  mittee had made an investigation into  the request of Mr. D. McMillan for  permission to run an irrigation ditch  down the lane north of Bernard epen.  irom i Ethel street in order to put  water on to his land on Biohter street.  The committer) believed the drtoh could  be put in without ^convenience to  any property owner, and recommeuUed  that the permission be given.  A resolution waa passed to that  effect.  An application from Messrs. Crowley  & Co. for the cancellation of a Tub-  division of Blocks 43 and 46, Map 46%  which had been passed by the etiuaoil  bus never registered, waa leceivad i.nd  a resolution passed aB desired.  Aid. Harvey reported that a lvquest  had' been made by Mr. G. Chick for  some improvement work to be done on  Willow avenue* but as ths work would  cost considerable money, and only two  people would be served, it was decided  to inform Mr. Ohiok that his request  could, not be granted at present.  Mention was made of the disou3slon  whioh had taken place at a previous  meeting on the feasibility of reduehg  the water rate for gardening purposes.  Aid.

For u  I lew years inter, the money in circuit,  tion waa brought in by new-comers,  'and by remittancos and borrowing,  'from abroad. Credit waa easy. lie.  chants ran up large accounts on iiioir  boons, and money cou.d ba obtained  from tha banua almost ior the asuing.  Most of the money was spent in development worn by companies and iu  dividuals, and created a prosperity  which ia itself waa not lasting, but  whioh should havo laid a solid iouui-  ution for our agricultural industry,  liniortunately the real estate boom  which swept over the whole coonry,  inundated this valley, and espoiU.ty  the, oity, with all ita ovils. Baal estate Droning became the popular pursuit of many man who by training and  experience were unqualified to hsudle  matters of thia kind. To their incompetence oan be traced many of tne  losses whioh axe being carried today.  The declaration oi war, continued  Ur. Benson, created a financial panic  throughout Canada, and gre.it credit  was due to ehe Bankers' Association,  who practically Control Canadian  finance, for the manner in which they  had mastered the situation. Credit  was tightened everywhere, merchants  endeavored to collect in their accounts  and to get on to a cash basis, and  the banks exerted pressure to call  loans, and practically ceased making  new ones.  This forced the people back to the  land and the products of tha soil lo  pay their debts and to earn a livelihood. The year 1914 was the '.urdest  in the history of the district, and the  outk)ok in 1915 was farfrom reassuring  The Cannery, however, was reorganised  and a Creamery established, and these  two institutions were responsible for a  large proportion of tbs money circulated at that time.  In 1916 high prices prevailed and  were taken full advantage oi by  increased production. A notable fact  was that for the first time for many  years, beef, pork, and looal made butter were sold on the coast markets.  The importance oi this could soared,  be exaggerated, as showing that we  had overcome tne adverse trade balance, having previously imported Urge  quantities of these products.  The season of 1917 promised a very  heavy crop, and it seemed likely that  high prices for farm products   would  Crsss ess own Oomsooixfciit.l  Mrs. S. T.

The old  Opera House is to be eliminated loom  Water street, and the stores exteaded  back to the lane. The site of Crawford's old store will probably1 lie reserved lor a new Opera Uous��, and  between this and Lawson's will bo  another store.

The road had been started some  'years ago, but owing to represent*-  ' tions which he Blsd made to the ijov -  ernment it had been abandoned. lie  deprecated the action of the oonuni'Se<  in reviving the scheme without rim*  'suiting him as.owner of the property.
