eeting of City Council
Alderman Ball Presents Financial Report—Rate of Taxation
Fixed—Fire Brigade Dispute Settled
A meeting of the city council
was held on Friday, the Mayor
and Aldermen Ball, Bailey, Cox
and Elliott being present.    -
The "minutes of the previous
meeting having been read and
• adopted the Mayor explained that
a temporary license had . been
granted to Mr. Grabell of the Royal Hotel, pending the sitting of the
License Commissioners.
Aid. Cox thought the Commissioners were due to sit soon, and
understood that the usual time for
the sitting was in the month of
Aid. Elliott was of the opinion
that a notice of the transfer should
be put in the newspapers.
The estimates were then brought
forward, it being desired that they
should be cut down as low as possible. The fire and water estimates
were the first to be attacked, and
the hose cut down to 400 feet.
Aid. Elliott said he thought that
would be enough to go on with,
and. showed a sample of Red Cross
hose whichhe advocated getting.the
price was 85cra foot, and in comparison to the price paid last year
was much lower. ' *
Aid. Bailey remarked that the
hose last year ' was of very poor
quality, and he hoped that the'
Red Cross would be better.
The city clerk explained that a
form, of agreement and' guarantee
•was given with the.sample now,
before the council, and it/was decided to purchase. The - hose
would come in 50 ft. lengths, and
couplings had already been ord-
' ered. Aid. Elliott had written to
the Canadian Rubber Co., cancelling order, if it was not already
Dr. Keller attended, and explained that he had read a report
. ih the press that the room he was
renting to the council was to be
used as a court room, and wished
to say that he would not rent the
room on those conditions.
The'Mayor said the council did
not contemplate making any such'
plans, and that the room would be
used as a bedroom for Chief Hidson, and an office where private
interviews could be conducted.
A motion was then put forward
that By-law No. 62, re striking a
rate of taxation, be read a first and
second time.
The Mayor announced that the
general  estimates   had   been  cut
down' as low as possible,  and' the
-general-rate wouldbeone-halft<f
one per cent more than la3t year.
A general discussion ensued as
to the time that should be given
the people to pay. Thirty days
was suggested by the Mayor in
order to secure the 10 per cent,
reduction. It was agreed that a
rebate of one sixth should be made
if the taxes were paid on or before
the 1st of October, 1909.
The following motions » were
carried.    *
Elliott-Ball—That the Board of.
Works estimate be passed.
Elliott-Ball—That the estimates
of the fire and water committee
for the current year amounting to
$700 be approved.
Elliott-Bailey—That the estii
mates of the Health committee,
amounting to $1,500 for the current year be passed.
A general discussion then en-'
sued as to the building of the
power house. Aid, Cox advocated
a building being made of concrete
as it Would be cheaper by about
$200, and would be ready about
two weeks sooner.
Aid. Bailey contended that no
provision was made {or concrete.
»The . architect"had decided 'on
brick, and tenders had been asked
for that, material, there was no
motion put before the council to
call for concrete tenders and it had
not been done.
Aid. Cox understood at last
meeting that tenders were to be
solicited for both1 brick, and concrete, and Aid. Elliott thought' it
both, if only for the sake of making
the tenders of a competitive nature.
The original motion was turned
up in the minute books, and it was
found that the building was to be
built of fireproof material, neither
stipulating brick or concrete. The
matter then dropped, it heing decided to look further into the
matter during the next few days. ^
The city clerk was instructed to
order 400 ft. of Red Cross hose,
at a cost of 85c. per foot, and
twelve couplings for same.
The meeting then adjourned to
meet again on Monday, June 28th,
.The usual meeting-of the city
council was held on Monday last
at 8 p.m., a full attendance of aldermen being present, with Aid.
Bailey as acting mayor, in the place
of Mayor DeHart, who is away at
the coast.
The minutes of "the previous
meeting having been read and adopted, the following correspondence was^ealt with.
' J. A. Nisbitt to S. T. Elliott re
the advisability of using fireproof
paint for painting the exhibition
, Canadian Fairbanks Co. re fireproof safes, filed.
• Mr. Newby was present together
with a sample of,, bricks.. he had
collected' from "the"''brickwork'
around the boiler at the power
house, and put in a protest on behalf of himself and several ratepayers against the building of the'new
poWer house of brick. He shewed
the council the condition of the
brick after the recent Tfire, and
thought that the building ought to
be built of concrete. A general
discussion then arose as to the
building of the house of concrete.
Aid. Cox was of the opinion that
it was agreed to call for tenders
both of cement and brick.
- Aid. Bailey did not understand
it that way, and had only called for
tenders for a- brick building.
The City Clerk explained that
the tenders .for the building were
all in and . ready to be opened.
The acting mayor instructed him
to proceed to read the tenders.
Aid. Ball did not think that it
would be' fair to open the tenders
when the council were going to
call for a concrete building. If the
material Was to be changed he
the tenders before the whole matter
was decided.
Aid. Elliott pointed out that some
of the tenders sent in were for concrete as well as brick, and at this
point it was decided "to make
public the figures quoted for a
brick building and to keep in abeyance the prices , quoted on the
cement building, The following
tenders were then read :
From C. G. Clement—Brick
Building according to plans. The
city to supply sand, lime and brick
according to specification for the
sum of $2,150.
A second tender was read from
H. W. Raymer offering to do the
same work on the same conditions
for $2,200, provided the city kept
the meft well supplied with bricks.
An other one was also received
fipnv.M. J. Curts dffering to do the
worlc for $2,835.. It was decided
to refer back the tenders that had
riot made any provision for a
cement, building."; 7
":'-yThe7que8tion'-,aB' to the advisability of having bins placed in
the building was again brought up.
Aid. Ball was of the'opinion that
it was a question of vital importance.;. ';"'■■■' ■ ''■■■
Aid. Bailey thought it would be
possible to do without pro tern,
and that a hose could be fixed on
to the large pump. In event of Sre
the whole could be practically
flooded out;
Aid. Ball did not agree with the
system of sawdust behind the boil-
brought the matter up two weeks
ago, it was one of importance. The
building had now been delayed
two weeks, and he thought'provision ought to be made with reference to the matter in the new
concrete tenders that are being
called. :
Aid. Elliott advocated bins be-,
ing putin with studding and an1
outside sheet of corrugated iron, ft
Aid. Cox advocated an outside
bin with an iron slot or door leading into the building.
Aid Elliott did not like the idea
because it would make the building'
look ungainly.' '•
It was, however, decided to call
for tenders for concrete right away,3
and to have them in by Wednesday'
noon. * -    \   ]
Aid. Ball asked Mr. Newby about
the sweating ot concrete, and his.
reply was that quite a few engine'
rooms were built of the material,'
and no danger from that cause had,
been experienced. ,J; '
Mr. Burne attended with a  form'
of   By-law   from     the     Canadian,
Pacific   Railway.      He   explained
that the companv were asking for1
an agreement whereby it was made?
clear that the C. P. R. track couldr
cross Water Street.    After   a   little,
discussion it was  agreed ' to  hav$'
to have the By-law   prepared   arid
read al an early date, at the   same
time   it  was  mentioned   that   the
C. P. R. should be told to urge  on
the work. "y
Mr. Samson, H. Newby, and M;
Jenkins attended on behalf of thej
fire brigade, and asked for a writi-,
en agreement as to how the brigade
was to go on. '     "V5
Aid. Elliott remarked that he/understood that the fire brigade' in
future wquld be a purely voluntary
one, and would require nothing,
from the.souncil except equipmertfr.
In reply, the members of the
brigade present said that was their
When asked about the account,
the council agreed to pay it as amended, and it was agreed to set out
a written form of agreement between the council and the brigade,
to be submitted to the brigade at
their next meeting. Later in the
evening the. bill was brought up
and passed for $55 the statement
reading $40 .for sprinkling the
streets, and $15 for the
care of the hose. The agreement
was left to Aid. Elliott to draw up.
Mr. McKenzie, representing the
Rubberoid Roofing Co., attended
with samples of fireproof roofing,
and suggested that the material
should be used on the power house
roof instead of tin. It would require to be pinned on to shiplap
and would come cheaper than galvanized iron.
The council agreed to include
the roofing in their tender, aud to
call for tenders for rubberoid aswell

A serious accident occurred  on
the  new  road   being  constructed
between Westbank ferry and Bear
Creek.    A gang  of road   makers
were blasting near Vernon's place,
where an unusually large   boulder
was in the way, with a deep pit on
the side on   which   the   road   was
due to take its course.  The charge
under this boulder was so successful, that it was decided to   try   the
other side   where   a  smaller  rock
was   established.       Consequently,
Hank Munroe,  who   was   looking
after  the   placing   of  the   charge,
started work, and ramming a  hole
full of blasting powder set the fuse.
It was then   noticed   that   a   small
quantity of powder  was   trickling
down  a   crevice   near  which   the
fuse was lying, and   to   prevent  a
premature explosion, a  rock was
placed in front of the   charge,   the
fuse being carried over a rock. All
would have gone well had not the
fuse slipped,   and   fallen   into   the
raven, thereby causing the   charge
to explode, before   Munroe   could
get away.    Seeing what had   happened Munroe   made   an   attempt
to run, but was practically riddled
.with rock as he was trying  to  get
out of danger.    His back was   one
mass of rock from the neck downwards, but luckily nothing touched
his head otherwise he would have
been killed.
Immediately a signal from across
the lake brought Hayman's "Clo-
velly" to the assistance of the injured man, and quickly he was
placed in the boat, suffering terribly from the' pain. A quick
journey was made across the lake,
and Dr. Huycke immediately summoned.'
A stone about one   inch   and   a
half square was   found   imbedded
in the right heel, and several other
stones, some about an inch square
grading down to the size of a pea.
The man was immediately removed to the hospital where the  painful   operation   of  taking,-out  the
pieces of rock was   gone  through,
it being impossible to give the man
any anaesthetic owing to the weak
state   he   was   in.     The latest  reports to hand are very favourable,
and it is  expected  that  the  poor
fellow will be   able   to   get  about
again _ soon.     The   pain   of   the
wounds    however  is   awful,  and
although every relief is being given-,
very little can be done to allay the
pain.'  It is  considered   that  both
litpbs are in safety at  the  present
moment, but blood poisoning may
set in at any time, as it is practically impossible to clean the   wounds
out thoroughly owing to   the   pain
Garden Party
at "Goisacoan"
The Union Jack was flying  over
Guisachan " last Tuesday, a thing
it seldom does, except upon some
special occasion.   The reason for
its appearance  on  Tuesday,  last,
was the  occasion  of the  garden
party   given    by    the    Women's
Auxiliary   of     the     Church     of
England.    Mr. Dallin's dray which
drove some of the guests out, was
fitted up with seats and formed in
to a  veritable  Tally  Ho   for  the
occasion.    The only vacancy being
the man with the  horn  a decrep-
ancy which is soon to be provided.
The guests were numerous  and  a
good  smattering    of    men   were
present,    although  the  " fair six"
predominated.     The  majority  of
the evening was   spent  in   games
and sports, while some wished   to
walk over the extensive   premises
owned  by  Mr.  W. C  Cameron.
During the evening ice cream and
strawberries    were    served,    and
great credit is due  to   those  who
had the work  in  hand   necessary
to make  such  parties   a   success,
y^fter a little music  was  indulged
in, the party broke   up   about  ten
thirty  and   all   present   expressed
themselves delighted at the pleasant evening they had spent.

account of Chief Hidson for fetching prisoner from Fairview, it being, set forth that Hidson was acting
for the provincial constable, and
that the whole case was a provincial
affair. It was decided to see provincial constable with leference to

Friday proved a decided success.
Many people were present to witness the baseball game, professionals versus Commercials, and a real
good game was witnessed. The

be congratulated on the quality of
their music, a marked improvement
on their previous endeavor. The
fair sex, as is usual at these social
functions, predominated and were
to be seen sitting under the shade
of the trees, being served with ice

Hotel Building
For Westbank
A new hotel is now building at
Westbank. Some weeks ago the
Westbank Sawmill started turning
put lumber for the building, and
now has finished its contract. The
hotel which is to take a prominent
position, one which overlooks the
lake, will be a great acquisition to
the town, aqd great credit is due
to Mr. Wheeler for the move he
as. made. The building is to be
00 ft. by 50 ft, built of wood, and
will'contain 24bedrooms. Alarge
basement with dining room and
lobby, will constitute the lower
portion. The proprietor, .Mr.
Wheeler, has only just recently

Dr. Williams, of Vernon, arrived
last Monday to conduct an operation on one of his old patients. •
After some months of building
the box factory and sawmill,  near
the hospital in Pendozi Street, has
started work, and is  now turning
out the lumber  to  build  its  own
sheds and covering for its machinery.   A boom of logs, in all about
40,000 ft., was  brought  over the
lake last  Monday  by  Campbell's
boat,  and  safely  stacked   in.the
small  space  of two  hours.     On '
Tuesday the   mill   started   work.
The frame of  the   building  is  all
that at present stands,,and is situated about 350 feet into the lake.
A long platform wharf is built on
on piles  connecting the  building "
with the shore.    Upon  the  frame
building a large engine is installed, .
and up above is a log carriage and
circular saw.    The log chute which
constitutes the back of the building
is already in  working  order,  and
logs are being drawn up by means
of the engine power.    Some little
difficulty was experienced in firing
the first day, owing to  the  dampness of the slabs used, but this will
be quickly remedied.
.   A    talk    with    Mr.   Anderson
brought forth the following  information.    He intends going steady
at first and  only turning out the
lumber   necessary   for   his     own  >
building, which will consist.of the:
mill,   several: out   buildings   and
sheds on the   lake shore  and an-  '
office.    In all about three acres* is/
included in the property, and: on ,.
this will be the drying sheds,  and
stackyards. *
Mr. Anderson will this year turn  <■•
out sufficient lumber to set season-'
ing  for   making   boxes   for   fruit;.'

Attention is being called to
the notices which have been
posted with respect to the
Bush Fire Act. Complaints
are being made that the requirements of the Act are being
constantly disregarded, in spite
of the great danger to which
such a course exposes a district,
and especially one which . is at
all well timbered.
The recent disastrous fire
near Enderby should prove a
sufficient warning, one would
think, for the whole Valley.
But there are people to whom
no amount of warning seems
to appeal, and who apparently
would go on lighting fires without taking any preliminary
precautions, and leaving them
smouldering at the mercy of.
the first wind, if half the province were burnt, out.
The< requirements set forth
in the notice are not very exacting when one thinks of the
frightful consequences of carelessness in this matter. To
clear a safe space before lighting a fire, and to see that it is
properly out before leaving it
are measures of which any ordinary consciencious and careful man. does not need to be
reminded. In the summer
months when the hot sun dries
every dead twig and blade of
grass until it is ready to ignite
at the smallest spark, unless a
space is carefully cleared a fire
is apt to "creep" unawares until it gets beyond control.
A smart fine is the penalty
for neglect, but with right-
minded people the consideration of public safety should
be a more powerful influence
to ward the carrying out of a
very necessary law. "'■■■'"
have an ugly building, sooner
than have a fine power house,
with the ugly part inside in a
position where a reoccurrence
of fire may be at any time.
The expense of outside bins is
another obstacle put in the way
and why? Would not the
ratepayers be willing to rescind
the recent by-law, giving the
surplus on the park purchase
money, .to be expended on
setting out the park, and have
it placed on the fund for building a good substantial power
house, no matter how ugly,
but absolutely without the
chance of a fire starting again
from some false economy exercised in the building.
Canada said her Naval
The visit of Sir  Frederick _ Borden   and
Mr. Brodeur to the Naval  Conference  in
London, it is to be expected will   result in
the establishment of some  form   of Naval
Force, by means of which British Columbia
can see   her   coastal waters  patrolled  by
Canadian ships of the best type.     It  now
is time  to   insist  upon   one   thing.     The
prospects of the   coming Canadian   Navy
must not be imperilled by its being turned
over to the tender mercies of Mr. Brodeur
and   his  wonderful   Marine   Department.-
That eminent statesman found his Department in bad shape, had two years in which
to reorganize it, and then  was  caught  by
the Cassels' Commission with his   Department as rotten as ever.    Apart  from   the
special unfitness of the Marine Department
it  must  be   remembered   that   its  name
really it a misnoner.     Its  business  is  to
build lighthouses, place buoys and otherwise help navigation.    Its  fishery protection boats are useless for  naval purposes.
The Australian method should be studied.

Departments, one for the   management  of
the Land Militia, the other for the management or the Naval Force.     The   Minister
manages both Departments, and   they are
linked by a Council of Defence over which
the Minister presides, and upon which   sit
the senior officers of both the . Naval and
Military branches.   In this way both   services are enabled.to understand  and help
each other, and to form their plans in harmony.   Australia has led the   way- in the
matter of a naval force and   her  example
should be followed by Canada.
It seems strange   that   our
aldermen should be considering the. advisability of placing
bins in the new Power House.
Some people before the fire>
at once saw the folly of having
the sawdust piled  up behind
the boilers, and it is a  strange
thing that the matter should
now be causing a discussion in
the   council   chamber.      The
question of having a hose fixed
to the big pump in case of ac
cident, is not sufficient, a hose
was supposed to be in readiness before, but where was it ?
One often .hears the words, "it
is easy to be wise after the
event," but this does not. seem
to apply to the sawdust ques-
. tion in the power house.
Aid. Ball,rightly brought the
, matter up atthe last two meet
ings, and it is strange that the
rest of the council did not take
further, steps and insist on bins
or some other-safeguard being
included in'the tenders of the
new building.   The only feas-
, ..able.plan seems to be to have
t^e-bina outside, a. suggestion
.which one. of; our, councilmen
thinks -would make the <• building look-ungainly.    What, is
, wanted. now is a safe power
1 house where the risk of fire is
reduced to minimum, and. if it
cannot be had ony other way,
than by making the- building

Government and the Wage
The Government has taken a curious
attitude with regard to the wages of the
railway clerks at St. John and Halifax.
There was a demand from these officials,
who as I.C.R. employees also are employees of the Government, for a readjustment
of salary. They demanded an investigation under the terms of the Government's
Labor Legislation. . The I.C.R. authorities
consented and an inquiry was held. There
was a unanimous finding that the men
were underpaid. Also there was a finding
that the Government were employing too
many men, and that if superfluous persons
were removed the pay could be raised
without loss to the Company. If ' this decision had been given against a private
employer, he would have' been expected
to raise the pay of these clerks. The
been done'to give effect to the. finding,
and the I.C.R. Board now announces that
it does> not intend to respect it. That
how the Government treats the Lemioux
Act. Yet it expects mining and railway
companies to heed it.

How East Side London Plays on
Boxing Day.
All Cockneyland Flocks to Historio
Hampstead Heath, Where Hilarity,
Fast and Furious, Rules From Early
Morning Till After Midnight.
J_oxi_g day Is a great institution in
England. The day after Christmas is
Boxing day, so called because in the
old days it marked the occasion of the
actual giving of Christmas boxes. Now
it is a national holiday. Besides being
the last In the year, it has to sufllee
Londoners, at all events, until Easter
Monday. It's a great day in Cockney-
land, and the east end 'crowds to
Hampstead heath, the picturesque open
space in tbe northwest of Loudon.
All roads lead to the heuth. Soon
after daybreak the piotession begins.
Fully lorided tuips and donkey barrows
are the principal items in tho veld, ular
traffic, but the majority are on foot,
Binging and shouting for the holiday.
" 'Ere yer are, Sir 'Enery,'" shouts a
woman, pushing a tin squirt filled with
water into your face. " 'Ere yer are.
81r 'Enery;. all the fun of the fair.
Two a penny. 'Ave a couple, will yer,
m'lud?" ." l
The London street merchants have
the habit of giving prospectivecustom-
ers a title, presumably on the-theory
that a Londoner likes to have you believe that he is some well known man.
Should you be persuaded into buying
"a couple" the chances are a moment
later you will be face to face with'
•Arriet. She wears a "large hat trimmed
With large feathers of brilliant - hue,
has a hair fringe down over her fore-,
bead and a bright colored velvet dress.
Probably several will be in a line, each
with an arm around the other's neck
and a mouth organ in t_e~other band.'
There is battle in their eyes, and .before you arev aware of it a stream of
Water will be running down your face.
The best thing to do is to retreat, for,.
tt you should give battle you are'sure'
to retire", defeated, "with your collar1
like a wet rag and a most uncomforta-.
We feeling of dampness down your
back.    - ~i~ ri    '':
,Once -on the heath' the cocoanut
pitches will first claim your notice. < -^
"'Ere yer are, kernel; seven "shies;a

and kids 'arf way." f-\.   >
Then this scene will meet your"eye:
Outside a large, tent stands,d raised
platform. On it are half a dozen'men
Stripped to the waist with arms, fold-
Mi across their chests. One of■> them,
evidently jthe proprietor, twists-a large
cattle, which gives forth a most deaf-,
enlng noise. At last'it stops, and h'e
"Loidies and* gents, I wants ter hin-
terdace to yer notice some of the best
boxers in the world. 'Im at the end is
ffellx Scott of Liverpool. 'E'll fight
any man in the crahd, and if he don't
pat 'lm aht in three rahnds 'e'll give
fbn a quid. Nab, then, who'll.'ave 'em
•d 'With the champion?"- "     .   _
Some one accepts the Inviting offer,
and a rash is made to pay- tbe admission fee and get into the tent.'
A company of traveling actors is assembled on the platform outside the
next tentf all made up" in their war
paint The .piece to be performed is
"Othello." The price of admission is
• penny. A reserved seat, an empty
box, will cost you another penny. And
tbe house soon fills. .
Outside you will find every form of
outdoor amusement in full swing—
*A_nt Sallies," swings, roundabouts,
skipping and donkeys. The latter are
greatly patronized. Young men and
maidens, old men and women, all have
«fc pannorth of donkey ride.'K A fat
Woman clings to one poor beast's neck
shouting: .'

- When the dust has cleared away she
b, seen lying in the road panting:
"I know'd yer done it on purpose I"
At last the journey home is begun,
everybody happy and tired, yet not too
tired to link arms, the men wearing
tbe girls' feathered hats and pearl buttoned coats and the girls wearing caps
•ad hats and wondrous masculine
Jackets. All are singing different
songs, but every now and then they
break forth in unison ^ with popular
songs of the moment. In the saloons
they drink beer out of one pewter and
swear undying love nnd friendship till
the voice of the proprietor, It now being' 12:30 In tbe morning and closing
time, Is heard calling, "Time, gents,
please," and a final start is made.
This may answer th<? question why
the' average Cockney worker ^always
wants a second day off to get over
Boxing day.
The death at the age of 92 is announced
of Mr. J. We3t, who has been for many
years editor of the Gloucester Chronicle.
Mr. West was a native of Devonport, and
served his journalistic apprenticeship in
Plymouth. Of his children one, Mr. J. S.
Richard West, I.S.O., is assistant "Controller
of the Savings Bank Department of the
General Post Office.
Burglar's House in a Boiler
A curious discovery was made at Elm-
field the other day, when three men were
found inside a disused boiler. The boiler
which was situated on a vacant piece of
land, belonged to the Small Arms factory,
and seeing smoke coming out of the top
the policeman peered inside. Here he
found three men warming themselves by
the fire, and while he was questioning
them he saw a jimmy and other burglar
tools, and at once proceeded to arrest the
men. When brought up at the court the
men admitted various burgalaries, and
were accordingly sent down for a term of
Fleet in the '.Thames.
During July, the Thames will be a regular gala scene, when the man-of-war will
line about forty miles of river. Wherever
possible the boats will moor on the north
side, and will line up for the pageant between London Bridge and The Nore. Extensive arrangements- are being made at
Southend for the accommodation of the
crews.. On one day a meat tea will be
served to hundreds of. men, to be followed
by a musical and dramatic recital at the
ICursaal. Fireworks will be let off and one
or two regattas are advertised at dates that
will concede with the visits of the fleets. In
London the sailors taking part in the pageant are to be marched through th* city
on July 21st, and will there receive the
hospitality of the City. Arriving at Fen-
church Street Station, they will proceed
with bands and colours through the decorated streets. The Lord Mayor and Sheriffs will watch the procession at the. Mansion House, and then proceed to Guildhall,
where they will receive 'them in the Art
Gallery and entertain them to lunch, The
number of officers and men will reach
about 12,000 and the war vessels will number about one hundred.
Banker   Commits  Suicide.
A verdict of suicide while' temporary insanity, was returned at Leamington,   concerning the tragic  death  of  Mr.   Dennis.J
Edwin Samuel, brother of the Under-Sec.
for Home Affaire, and partnerT>f the well  jm
known firm of bankers, Samuel Montague
& Co., of London, who was   killed 4>y' a
passing train at Leamington Station.' Herbert Samuel, M.P. and Mr. Stuart Samuel,
M.P. were  present  at the inquiry.    The
evidence showed that the deceased was in
good health until March, when he was attacked by influenza at Monte  Carlo.    He
was told by several physicians that nothing
was wrong with him and that he only wanted  occupation.     He  had 'been  married
eight years,,and his union had alway been
one of ."unalloyed happiness.   He had no>
trouble in the world except imaginary ones.
The driver of the train said  he taw  the
deceased throw his  hat  on  the  platform '
and jump in front of the train.   In returning their verdict, the jury expressed their
sympathy with the relatives.
Ice Cream Poisons Children."
Ice cream has caused a remarkable number of ptomaine poisoning at Mineaton.
The district most severely affected is Att-
enborourgh, where nearly every medical
man ia treating cases of poisoning. The
most of thercases are' children and numDer-
over a hundred. One doctor has no less
than forty cases in hand. In most cases
the sufferers were seized with a violent
sickness followed by collapse.
Wanted to 8eo Them.
When Helen, aged four, for the first
time accompanied ber mother to
church she was given some money for
the collection box. It was carefully
explained to'her that this money was
"for the poor,"
Helen sat patiently through perhaps
R third of the service, when she startled her mother by rattling the coins
between her cupped hands and Inquiring in a loud voice: "Mamma, when
are the poor coming around. My 8
cents Is getting all hot and sticky!"—

The late Sergt. E. Copley Thompson of Vernon who met his death
by drowning in a few inches of
water, was buried last week. The
funeral which was a military one
took place at All Saints Anglican
Church on Monday 21st. The
church was crowded to the doors.
Over the grave three volleys
were fired by the Okanagan Mounted Rifles, and the bugler sounded
the last post. The scene was very
impressive, and sympathy is, extended to the relatives of the deceased
and also to Vernon in the loss of
one of one of their well beloved
Last week the" Vernon fire brigade
were called out to a fire on the
premises of Thomas Moss near the
corner of Maple and Elm streets.
When the brigade arrived they
found the houses as well as the
smaller buildings in flames, and
circumstances pointed to incendiarism. The explanation of the fire
was contained ina letter addressed
to H.G.Miller in which Thos. Moss
set forth his assertion that he would
burn all the buildings up and himself as well owing to financial difficulties. The chief of the police
wai informed and on proceeding
to the house, found Moss in a
small closet with his throat terribly
gashed. He could scarcely breathe,
and by his side was a small phial
of chloroform. The razor with
which the deed was done was
found in his hands. On the arrival
of the doctor, aid was immediately
given and the man taken to the
hospital. It is thought he will live,
but has to be constantly watched,

Personally, I have seen so much of the
evils of the liquor traffic in the last four
years, so much of its economic waste, so
much of its physical ruin, so much of its
mental blight, so much of its tears and
heartache, that I haye come to regard the
business as one that must be held and controlled by strong and effective laws.
I bear no malice toward those engaged
in the business, but I hate the traffic.'-'
I hate its every phase.
I hate it for its intolerance.
I hate it for its arrogance.
I hate it for its hypocrisy.
I hate it for its cant and craft  and
1 hate it for its commercialism.
1 hate it for its greed and avarice. -
1 hate it for its sordid love   of   gain   at
any price.
1 hate.it for its domination in  politics.
1 hate it for its corrupting   influence in
civic affairs.
1  hate it  for its   incessant   effort   to
debauch the suffrage of the country;   for
the cowards it makes .of public men.
I hate it for its utter disregard of law.
I hate it for its ruthless trampling of the

This seems something
of exaggeration on the
part of the poet, it at

men. , The man with a

draw worth a cent, un-
less-as a curiosity.

Westminster Bridge Steel Floor to
be Extended
An important change is to be made in
the New Westminster bridge, to prevent a
reoccurence of the accident which took
place last 'week, when the engine and tender of the Great Northern railway plunged
to the bottom of the river and resulted in
the loss of two lives. The hole through
which the engine dropped after leaving
the track is to be covered over with steel,
steel girders being used as supporters.
This will make it impossible for a train to
leave the track and get into the river. The
locomotive which ran off the bridge has
been located in 50 feet of water and a
seven knot current is running over the
spot. The Provincial Government have
not yet announced the date of investigation, byt_when this does happen and there-
sponsibility is placed^it is likely to be attended with seme strange evidence.
Lineman Escapes Electrocution
While stringing wires for the police patrol alarm at Vancouver, E. Moore, an
itinerant lineman, narrowly escaped death
by electrocution. Both his feet grounded
on the transformer and he was held by
the current for some time. His cries were
heard by some firemen, who after some
difficulty procured'a high ladder and managed to release him. It was found that
holes had been burned through the soles
of both shoes, and his feet were blistered.
A crowd was collected together watching
the lineman in his fight with imminent
death, but were unable to give any assistance. The current was turned off once,
but came on again as the man was attempting to descend. As the current reentered his' frame the cries'1 of the man
were heart rending.
Flagman Struck by Engine
A Galician, whose name .is unknown,
and who was employed as a Flagman for
a gang of workmen about three miles from
Kenora, Ont, was struck by a local train
and thrown off the track. The man who
was sitting on the line'was, it is believed,
asleep at the time, and the engine driver
noticing the'obstruction slowed down, but
not in time to prevent the accident. The
man was at once taken to the hospital and
is reported as doing well.
' Double Drowning Fataliti).
A terrible drowning fatality took place
last week at a little town called Low near
Ottawa, under very distressing circumstances. The victims were an eleven year
old boy, named McCormick and Miss Nellie
Dating, seventeen years of age. The boy
was splashing his feet in the lake when he
fell in. Miss Oaling went immediately to
his assistance and also fell in. Both were
Robber Chase in progress.
. The R. N. W. M. P. are called to locate
the train robbers. The country around
Ducks, where the train was held up is being scoured by officers and men. About
fourteen men left Calgary last Thursday
for-the scene of the robbery, and the superintendent at Maple Creek arrived with
eleven men. Fourteen horses are on the
way from Calgary, who will- scour the
country south to the border. The general
opinion is that the robbers took a northern
course in order to bluff their pursuers, and
that a dash is being made south to the
boundary line.

No less than three hotels in Vancouver
have been refused a license-and-dice

applications refused are those of W.S. Cook
who asked for a permit for the Stanley,

Atlantic Ocean, 445 miles east of New
York, the North German Lloyd steamer,
Kaiser Wilhelrr. der Grose, lost a propeller
A wireless message to the effect was sent
to New York, and help was sent. Owing
to the sea being very calm, the chepice of

usually attends such catastrophes, wa»

Mr. Raffles Visits Vancouoer
The proprietors of the "Daily Province'*
have made arrangements with a Mr.
RafHes, a well known trickster* to -■ place
himself in a different disguise each day
and walk abroad among the people of
Vancouver. He claims he can avoid detection by disguising himself, even keeping his identity unknown to the chief detectives. The Province is giving a good
reward to the person who captures the
nian and who challenges him with the
words, "You are the mysterious' Mr. Raffles of the Daily Province," and it is likely
to cause some little commotion in the city
the same as it did in England when the
Daily Express sent out a Miss Watson on
the same stunt.
Electric Railway Damages Water
From a report of Professor Herdt of the
MbGill University it is estimated that the
damage to Winnipeg's water mams since
the Winnipeg Electric Street Railway started is enormous and will amount to about
$8,000. The city By-law provides that the
company running an electric railway are
liable for damage done to the city's property and it is" likely the caSe will receive
much attention when taken up by the
authorities this week.    / '
Sixteen Men Nearly Smothered
Bu   Grain.
Sixteen grain trimmers on S.S. Lake
Manitoba, had a narrow escape from death
last week. The men who were working
some distance from a hatch were surprised
to find grain pouring down the hatch hole,
and so cutting off their escape. The grain
which filled the hatch, was certain to smother the men had not they clustered round
an air shaft in which position they were
found after four hours imprisonment. The
alarm of their disappearance was not
noticed until the lodging houe keeper
wondered why they had not turned up to
supper, and on making enquiries'caused
the vessel to be unloaded with all possible
Floods Garry away Railway Camps.
High water on the Skeena River has undermined the banks in many.places and
small landslides have occured. Two camps
belonging to railway construction contractor,
were carried without warning into' the
stream, They were, however, .recovered
and planted further back from the- banks
away from the'swift current. The buildings were completely covered' with water
but no lives., were lost.
Dry Docks for St. -Lawrence.
The Hon. Mr. Brodeur when in London
stated that he would consult the authorities there on the dry dock question. He
favours a dry dock at Montreal and also
at Qyebec. The latter, itjs intimated, will
used in connection with imperial defence.
The Montreal dock being used for mercantile shipping. Nothing can be decided,
however, until Mr. Brodeur returns after
his conference with the admiralty.
Steamer  Aground.
The steamer, Campania which is ashore
on the rocks at St. Valiers, has been abandoned to the underwriters by the owners
of the vessel, she is reported in very bad
shape. Her insurance which is covered in

down into Lake Atlin a distance of twenty
miles sweeping all before it. The big bridge of the British-American Dredging Co.'
costing $250,000 was wrecked, and a sawmill nearby swept away. Several flnmes
have also been destroyed. The total damage is estimated at about $80,000. The
flood will greatly retard work in this dist-
trict this year.

smash up was experienced last
Friday evening about six o'clock,
by Mr. J. E. Wheeler and. Mr.
Daniel. The same Shetland pony
which gave us a stunt to write
about last week, for some unaccountable reason turned into the
sidewalk by S. Elliott's store arid
turning the rig over , precipitated
the occupants on to the sidewalk.
Mr. Wheeler escaped with a
bruised side, while Mr. Daniel was
severely cut about the knees, and
has occasion to wear a shade over
his eye, which together with his
nose was injured..
An interesting game of baseball

counsel for the defendant, severely-

be made to the scene of action in
order .to verify a. statement made -
by one of the witnesses  "that he
saw what-was happening, through

the course of his  evidence  stated
that he was assaulted -first, and that
if he bit the  prosecutor's nose  it
was not with any -intention  to  do
harm.     The  prosecutor who  appeared with his nose'bandaged up
was sure his nose had been bitten,
and as he could not bite it himself,
it naturally followed that the accused was to blame.   The defendent's
counsel in. the course of an animated speech.declared .that. the tease

the hands of Aid. Elliott to- report
at next meeting.
Aid. Ball thought too much money was being expended cm the exhibition- grounds, and an estimate
ought to be struck and the present
finances looked into, before any
^ more work was done.
- *    Aid. Elliott, did not like the way
things were being -done on the
grounds, and took for example the
, matter of fencing, He had given
instructions in one direction, when
someone had gone down and altered all plans, and had run the council into an additional $200, he
wished to know, where the authority came from to alter the plans.
Aid. Cox said he had met Mr.
Buckland, who had complained
of the quality of posts that were
being used , but that was all he
had heard in connection with the
Aid. Ball thought the work ought
to be suspended until the expenditure was estimated, as^t was'-running into pretty high figures.
Aid. Elliott was- of  the.-, opinion
- that the work ought to be forged
ahead so as,.to .allow people t.o
train their horses for the races. If
it could not- be started soon he was
- of the belief that-there would be
no races this year.   -
Aid. Ball made out a motion - to
suspend operations, but the  ques-
- tion of the work -for. the" teams
came up.   A rough  estimate was
- prepared,' and the figures were
shown inside the estimated expenditure, and,Aid. Ball withdrew his

He explained that the expenditure of the current year was slightly below_ the actual expenditure of
last year 6V general account, but
the rate levied last year was not
sufficient to meet that expenditure.
The finance committee had pared
down the estimates of this year as
low as possible, and ' it would be
difficult to carry on the work of the

a plan of assessing and providing
for them through the local improvement system. The acting
mayor, took for example the North
side of Glenn Avenue where a
sidewalk-was needed, he remarked
that if the people on both sides of
the street were assessed, it jwould
mean that the South side that already had a sidewalk, would in all
probability vote against it. The
matter was however dropped, to
be taken up again at next meeting.
Some little dissatisfaction had
been expressed to the council
about the finish on the cement
sidewalk on the north' side of Bernard Avenue, it was agreed to • see
Mr. Clement on the subject and report at next meeting.-
The meeting then- adjourned to
meet again on Wednesday, - June
