Meeting of City Council
Pool Room By-law Passed Without Further Amendment -
Petition to Submit to Vote of People Turned Down -

; Thanks to the agitation over the
much debated Pool Room By-law

an unusual one. There was a full
attendance of mayor and aldermen.

passing the minutes of the previous meeting had been gone
through, the following accounts

Mr. R. B. Kerr then presented a
.petition signed by 159 ratepayers
asking' that the By-law No. 86
which seeks to impose certain restriction upon pool rooms and
billiard halls in the city be referred
to a vote of the ratepayers before
being finally passed. It. was the
law, he said, according to the
Municipal Clauses Act, that if at
any time one-fifth of the voters
asked for a referendum on any by-
by law before the council, the latter
could sanction the taking of a poll.
One-fifth of the present voters list
was 84, so that the 159 who had
signed the -petition represented
considerably over that proportion.
And this was, moreover, hot the
result of an exhaustive canvass.
More signatures could easily have
been got. The largest poll ever
taken in Kelowna was last year's
record of 230. So that the petition
represented over two thirds of the
largest poll ever taken. On that
account alone it should receive attention. The by-law .in question
had become an issue in the town.
Everybody was talking about it.
It was, therefore, a matter on which
the council should take a vote of
the electors.
Aid. Leckie raised an objection
to the proposal oh the score of the
cost oH_ poll to the city. Suppose,
he said, that a vote was taken and
the result went against the opponents of the by-law, would Mr.
Whitehead be willing to pay the
expenses incurred in taking a useless poll? .
Mr. Kerr said he did not think it
would be fair to ask him. In the
event of the vote carrying, and the
council being proved in the wrong
then they should certainly pay the
cost, or if the vote was lost by . the
people who had signed the petition
afterwards; • voting in opposition, then they, the ratepayers,
should still be made to pay.
Aid. Leckie said he would not
be surprised if many who had
signed the petition did vote for the
by-law. He had spoken to, about
a dozen of them and found they
did not really care whether the
by-law passed or not They had
signed purely out of good-will, be
cause they had been asked to do
so.'
Aid. Jones said he knew of several who had signed both petitions
who said they had really no interest in the matter, and thought the
council" should go ahead and do
their duty. He did not think petitions counted for very much anyway. A good deal of personal
influence was used in getting people to sign.
The expense of taking the vote
was estimated roughly by the city
clerk at about $35. This, Mr. Kerr
said Mr. Whitehead would be
quite willing to pay if he lost.
Aid. Leckie thought this put Mr.
Whitehead in a better position.
He would certainly have opposed
the vote on the ground of expense.
Mayor Sutherland said that this
was His sixth year on the council,
and there had hot been one year
when they had not been asked to
pass such a. by-law as the one in
question. They had been, approached by parents, school teachers
and others, who had complained
that the children had neglected
their studies to.frequent the pool
room.
Mr. Kerr here interposed on behalf of Mr. Whitehead, who declared that during the time he had
been running the pool room only
three cildren under 18 years of age
had been inside the place.    '
The matter had been repeatedly
brought.up, continued the mayor,
even so far back as Mr. Morrison's
time.. One of the arguments had
been 'that they ought to have.some
means- of preventing the boys attending the High School froni visiting the pool room. They were
getting letters every month on this
and similar matters, and not always-
from the class of people who were
supposed to be making complaints.
Such .letters were usually referred
to the police.
Aid; Jones did not consider the
matter of sufficient importance to
to a number of those who had
signed the petition. People he
had talked to on the subject had
•aid they had.every confidence in
the council, and advised them to
go ahead and do their duty. For
his part he would oppose the vote
being taken.
Mr. Whitehead, who had come
in to the meeting a few minutes
before, declared with some., heat
that he was personally responsible
for every signature on the petition.
He challenged any o,. t__e aiucrrnen
to put his finger on any one who
had signed merely for the sake of
signing. For a person like himself who a short time back was
utterly unknown in the town to go
round with two petitions inside of
two weeks and get so many to
sign indicated that there was considerable, interest felt in the  mat-
ter* '■-■■.. .
Aid. Leckie said  he had  heard
several declare that they did not
care two whoops whe/her the place
was kept open or not.
Mr. Whitehead retorted that
there might be some waverers
amongst them, but if a poll were
taken they would see whether the
people wanted the by-law or not.
If people were not interested, then
why should they sign the petition?
Either they knew their own. minds
or they did not. He did not see
how it was possible for him to get
at the wishes of the people other
than by a petition. He knew
petitions were despised, and some
gentlemen did not believe in them,
but he could not see any other
means.
Mayor Sutherland said he did
not believe in the campaign of
calumny which was being conducted against the council.
Mr. Whitehead : The council
were the ones to start it. There
was no need for such a bv-law. If
someone else had to take Up the
pool room who did not conduct it
roperly, they could pass a by-
aw inside of two weeks if they
had the people behind th<;n.
Aid. Jones, said that in any town
or city the size of Kelowna there
was always legislation of this
nature. The council had no wish
to work, any injustice against the
proprietor of the pool room, and
he did not think the bydaw as
submitted would work any injustice.
Aid. Dalgleish thought 11:30 was
a very reasonable hour for closing.
In most prairie towns 11 o'clock
was the usual hour.
Mi. Kerr reminded the council
that they were not at present discussing the merits of the by-law,
but whether they should concede
to the wishes of the petitioners to
put the matter to the vote, of 'the
people. 7„
If it were not such a «mall matter,
said the mayor, he personally
would like to see a vote taken. But
the question was so trifling that it
seemed like springing an April I st
joke on the people to ask for a
poll.
' Mr. Kenr said he knew: many
others besides Mr. Whitehead who
considered the question of great
importance.
Aid. Leckie said that when they
placed the hour at 11 o'clock hie
thought they were very reasonable,
and were certainly stretching a
point when they changed, it to
11:30. However, he was not
againstJiaving a vote if the people
wished it. ;   7
Aid. Copeland said he would
like to see the vote taken. He had
no doubt as to the way the vote
would go, but he thought they
ought to give to people the chance1
to say 'whether they would have
the by-law or. not.
•The discussion continued for
some time,. Mr. Kerr urging thai
the principle of referring disputed
questions to the people was becoming commoner and commoner
every year. The referendum had
been'introduced into ten States of
the Union, and the movement was
spreading in Canada.
The following motion was
eventually proposed by Aid. Leckie
and'seconded by Aid. Copeland :
''-That.a vote be taken of the ratepayers as to, whether By-law No.
86 as now amended, be passed by
this council, said poll to be held
in the council chamber on Saturday
the 22nd inst."
On being put the ..motion failed
to receive any further support, and
was accordingly lost.
Aid. Jones then proposed seconded by Aid. Dalgleish: " That Bylaw. No. 86  be reconsidered and

Glenmore Notes.
Fire Interrupts Play
at Opera House
Outbreak in Basement During
Performance
Visitors to the Opera House last
| Monday night were treated to some
unrehearsed excitement, which
might have had a good ] deal more
serious consequences. . During the
progress of " Merely Mary Jane"
smoke was. noticed coming up
through the front steps of v the
Opera House, and investigation
showed that fire had broken put
under the Hall, in the basement
used by Messrs. Lawsons, Ltd. as a
warehouse.
The alarm was at once given,
but before the brigade could locate
the fire and get their hose directed
upon it the blaze had gained considerable head way,rand the dense
smoke began to fill the Hall. The
place was about half full of people
at the-time, many ladies and children being amongst the audience.
Fortunately order was maintained
and in a few minutes all had filed
out by the side entrance.
; The fire, however, never got
beyond the basement, though considerable damage was done to the
valuable stock there. A few minutes application of a powerful jet
of water sufficed to put out the
flames, though not before some two
or three thousand dollars' worth of
stock had been ruined by fire and
water. About a. ton of butter
stored in a refrigerator contrivance
under the steps of the Opera
House was utterly spoilt. Potatoes,
canned goods, pickles, and candies
wer strewn all over the floor. The
loss is fully covered by insurance.
' An amusing feature of the exciting event was the. sight of the Allen
Players. sitting in war paint and
feathers on a heap of baggage,
dresses and other properties hastily
removed from the dressing rooms
into the back lane.. "Oh, VernaI"
called out " Susie," as she ran from
the, door with something in her
hand,; "You've saved everything
but your purse I" ' This ■ was 'addressed to " Merely Mary jane,"
who was sitting on an upturned
trunk in the darkness and debris
of the back lane.
A little later on when the smoke
had cleared away from the Hall,
performance was resumed,
great was the applause when
rise of the curtain revealed
Miss Verna Felton and Mr. Irving
Kennedy apparently as cool and
collected as though.they had never
been interrupted.
E
Mr. A. V. J&cCsrty, orchardist
for the Central Okanagan Lands,
Ltd., returned Wednesday from his
trip to Yakima Valley, where he
has been selecting the nursery
stock for Glenmore orchards. One
of the cars of stock came in this
week.
Mr. and Mrs. MacKenzie^ ot
Sunny Slope rahch.Glenmore, have
moved from the Lakeview Hotel
to their new home in the valley.
Among those who spent last
weekend in town were Mr. and
Mrs. Geo. A. Barrat, Montreal,
guests of Mr. H. H. MacLeay. Mr.
Barrat purchased a fruit ranch in
Glenmore, overlooking the city and
lake. They were so Well impressed with conditions in Kelowna and
Glenmore that they will visit the
valley again this autumn when the
crops are being harvested.
Mr. Jamieson has! returned to
Montreal after his two weeks' visit
to Kelowna. He made a good
number of friends in town during
his short stay, and it is reported
that he was a heavy investor in
Glenmore, where he will make
his home a little later in the season.
Mr. and Mrs. MacLaren have a
friend from the cast visiting them.
Mr. Canavan arrived from the
Coast this'week.
Glenmore  is  at  present a very
busy spot with so many buildings
being erected and so much preparation being made for starting the
[orchards in the valley.

GRAHAM--DUHAMEL

Calgary, whers Mr. Duhamel, who
was- formerly in Bouch's barber
shop, is starting in the barber business. The ceremony was performed by the Rev. D. J. Welsh.
. The Hatch blackmail case was
tried at Vernon last week and dismissed, the judge maintaining that
the letter sent to E. J. Pettigrew
could not legally be described as a
threatening letter.
A baseball match is arranged for
this afternoon between the city
team and the Allen Stock Co.
A daughter was born to the wife
of P. DeLautour at Vernon on
Sunday, March 19th.
Chicago and the Grear Lakes
are in the grasp of a severe blizzard.
W. O. Knowles of Vernon and
J. M. Yorston of Quesnel have

full attendance is requested, so that
final arrangements may. be made
for the convention to be held, here
in the last week in this month.
Allen Players Conclude
Successful Run
To-night's Play Last of Series
Miss Verna Felton and the Allen
Players close to-night one of the
most successful series of play 3 from
an artistic point of view which has
ever appeared on the boards of the
Opera House.
The Allen Players are a strong
combination, including some first-
rate talent. The leading star, Miss
Verna Felton, is a clever little lady
with wonderful versatility of talent
Grave or gay ; tragedy or comedy,
she exhibits a remarkable power
of throwing her whole vivacious
personality into the character she
represents. She can even '■—a rare
gift—rescue a part from mediocrity
and make it sparkle with her own
cleverness. Iii the varied characters
in which she has appeared during
the past': week she has been ably
supported by a company whose
talent is unquestionable.
Mir. Irving Kennedy, while at his
best in strict drama, is yet an all-
round actor of undeniable merit; 7.
"The Resurrection" given last
Saturday, is a great play by a great
writer, and its presentation was a
triumph for the company.
Such productions as " Zaza,"
" Second Mrs. Tanqueray,', "Merely
Mary Ann," and " Camille," present sufficiently varied and difficult
repertoire. fpr any company to
carry, but suffice it to'say that a
return visit will be eagerly looked
for. This we understand* the
company intend paying in the fall.

Sudden Death of Henry
Bartlett
.The last spike completing the
Copper -• /River > & ..Northwestern
Railway between Cordova, Alaska,
and Kenneicott, where the Bonanza
copper mountain is situated, was
driven this week. Work on the
railway, which is . 197 miles long
and cost $20,0.00,000, was begun
November 15. 1907.
Death came suddenly last Monday to old Henry Bartlett, who
died alone in a little cottage on
Glenn avenue. In the morning he
was around and appaiently well.
In the afternoon about three o'clock
he was found to be dead. About
noon he complained to Mr. and
Mrs. Newby of not feeling well and
as he became worse the doctor
was summoned, and he was got to
bed. Several times during the
afternoon, Mrs. Newby, who waa
attending to his wants, went in to
see him, and imagined him sleeping peacefully. Later he was discovered to have passed away
quietly. Heart failure due tOj
advancing years was the cause.
Deceased was in his seventy-
sixth year, and had always enjoyed
the best of health. He was born
at Portsmouth, England, coming
out to Canada some time in the
sixties. He had seen much of the
pioneer life of the olden days.
When hesfirst came to this country
nearly half a century ago he attached himsiSf to one of the old
Hudson 8 Bay posts on Lake
Manitoba.-, He was a young man
then, and -could tell many interesting stories of that adventurous life. -
Leaving,: there after • a', few years, he
joined'SG' P. R.:stirvey camp in
British Columbia. The party were
engaged in locating the main line
of the C. P. R., and this province
was an unknown land. Later he
returned to Holland, Manitoba, and
followed the occupation of gardener
coming to Kelowna six years ago
last fall. *
. Henry Bartlett was a man' who
was liked"and'respected wherever
he went.--;.. A;straighter man never
lived, sayA&ctae^who knew him
best. Ever ready to lend a helping
hand, he won the esteem of all who
came in contact with him. Amongst
his treasures was a gold watch and
chain, which was presented to him
by a large circle of well-wishers
when he left Manitoba for the
West
, So far as he knew he had no
living relatives. He had been so
long cut from the old land. that he
had lost all track of ~ them.
The funeral service took place at
the home of E. Newby yesterday,
the interment being at the Kelowna
cemetery. The Rev. A. W. K.
Herdman officiated.

The free packing school for
girls run by the Kelowna Farmers'
Exchange wn& started Monday
morning. Mr. J. Gibb has undertaken the duty of instructor. Some
eight or nine girls have enter- d for
the course, and are making great
progress. There is still room for
a fe«v more pupils, we understand,
and-those who would like to acquire for nothing an accomplishment which will ceit.inly mean
money to them when the packing
season starts should not hesitate to
seize the opportunity.
Many ratepayers on receiving
their usual assessment notices
recently saw with no little dismay
the apparently enormous increase
in the sum for which their-'improvements" had hitherto been assessed
—the figure was double in fact.
There is no need to lose any si. ep
over it, however, as the rate levied
will be on exactly the same basis
as before, that is on half the assessed value. The change is the result of an amendment to the Municipal Clauses Act which makes it
necessary to assess improvements
to their full value whatever' the
system of levying taxes may be.

A tame bear kept by Messrs.
Arnott & Hine, the proprietors of
the Alexandra Hotel at Okanagan
Falls, provided an exciting episode
last week. The Penticton Press
relates the story. The bear broke
away one morning, and Mr. Warrick Arnott started in pursuit.
"Bimbo" climbed a tree and
crawled along a branch with Mr.
Arnott after him. The branch
broke, and the bear and his pursuer
came to the ground. Bimbo then
made for the lake, running out
along the shore ice. Arnott followed and managed to grab the
long chain which the fugitive
dragged behind him. Then the
ict- gayft way, and both man and
bear disappeared for a time, only
to reappear and strike out for the
shore, which they reached by
scrambling over broken ice. The
exhausted bear was then captured,
and his courageous pursuer hurried
off to the hotel.

Famous British Oarsmen  Kave Visit-
ej Canada—Unassuming  Persons.
The British amateur oarsmen ap-
to be. unique figures in the .ath-
world. They are among the tew
men who have been prominent on
the sporting pages of the world without contracting the advertising habit,
and when Hon. Kupert Guiness visited Toronto a few weeks ago he was
not preceded by announcements nor
d_.. he try to get into the pub c eye.
When interviewed, it was as a politico ...i that he expressed himself, and
talked of colonial preference and tariff reform instead of speaking the lait
word regarding the sporting events of
the moment. In fact, it seems hard
for Canadians to believe that a man
who had twice • won the Diamond
Sculls could bo _,o modest. Hon. Hu-
part Guiness is one of England's gentler,.mi nt..."t«v aid his stalwnrt figure iind quick movement* indicate
t.ic. biJiiuiits 61 the life he lid* led.- It
may be added that he has not con-
_inul his career to taking part in and
t-lking about athleties, for he is now
a Unionist member of Parliament,
and has also served as a soldier.
!-T'« nui t coming and departure recall the visit ot Mr. Vivian Nickalls,
.u_>.u.t-i iu.i.ou.. tingliBh oarsman who
was present a. the Canadian Henley
in 1908. He came with a crew which
ho had been coaching in the United
States, and had been at the course
for a day before it,be ame known
that one of the-..nest oarsmen of the
day was present. Mr. Nickalls did
not make himself conspicuous, neither did he talk of the superiority of
the English style or tho English fecul-
lers. .
There   is  a   story   told   concerning
him which hi-icates that he had no
thought of adopting that attitude.   A
week before the races at St. Catha-
rii.es, a Canadian sculler had fallen
out of his boat while taking part in
the   Olympic   races   in   England.    A
sporting mdn was making fun of the
showing wuch Toronto oarsmen had
made   in  England   on  various  occasions,, and remarked to Mr. Nicknll?:
"I suppose you Englishmen think we
.!"...•   .....   .....ii.-iu   io   take   such   long
trips to learn to row?" ,'   •   .
• x-.iiu^s we are.especially justiued
in thinking that when you carry ofi
some of our pet trophies," replied the
British oarsman ironically.

where it differs from other places h.
Ontario which call themselves citit'*.
though none of theni have more popu
liition that Owen Sound.    Therefore
Owen  Sound  is the largest town  in
Ontario.  To be hackneyed, you might
say  that  Owen Sound "lies in  tin-
path  of  progress,"  sitting  up  there
on an inlet toward the southwebtern
part of Georgian Bay.   Here it cor

The Speech From tha Throne.
There is somethinf quite mediaeval
about -this' time-honored^ custom of
reading the Speech from the Throne.
Th_ Governor-General sits with his
hut- on- all the" way uuvugu. sscept
when he addresses the members oi
fie Lower House, and then he giv<••
it a gentle tilt. In Offer to show that
lu; is tlie representative of the representatives of the people the Speaker,
standing on Ms" little, hassock at the
bur, keeps his three-cornered hat on
also, and when His Excellency raisin
his headgear tho Speaker does likewise. Speaker Marcfl hu long, flowing white locks, and there is a growing suspicion - tha* his hat ib too
smnll,. for it is only tar the exercise
of continual dexterity that he is able
to keep it on his head. At the recent opening of. Parliament it was
quite fascinating to watch the movements of this "tile." The Speech was
of unusual length, and half the time
the three-cornered affair drooped
cutely over the left «f of the "Honorable Charlie."
Earl Grey, with a graceful wave of
his hand, sent by his aide-de-camp a
copy of "his" speech (prepared by
Hon. Charles Murphy) to Speaker
Marcil, and the latter promptly put
it in nis inside pocket, and marcheu
off, headed by the maoe, to the House
of'Commons, where, a few minutes
later, in a Sherlock Holmes tone of
voice, he informed tbe members that
"I have secured a copy of His Excellency's speech in oMsr to avoid mistakes."

Direct from San Francisco, with
his all-star caste and supporting
company of 40 people, comes Max
Dill, the noted German comedian.
" Lonesome Town," merriest of
musical comedies, is to be his
offering at the Kelowna Opera
House on Friday, April 14th, and
Saturday, April 15th, ' Dream Cily.'
He will be seen for two niglits
only.
" Lonesome Town " is from the
pen of that brilliant librettist, the
late Judson C. Brusi^, and is a
genuine laugh-feast from rise to
fall of curtain, presenting, in addition, a number of song  hits  that
And when.the entanglement is
so complex as to leave the audience
a withering mass of laughter-worn
humanity, the rightful heir, in the
peson of Hazy Fogg, a freckle-
faced product of Lonesome Town,
sweeps aside Eill other contestants
and with biblical meekness comes
into her own.
It is the funniest vehicle that Dill
has had in hjs career and his corps
of funmakers are excellent second
aides to him in the production
of the entertainment.

are bound t" become popular at
once.  It is an exceedingly ehibornte
production that Dill is to give us,; nan
as  picturesque  as  any  of the big j every Thursday, at 12.30   p.m
New York productions.     In  fact, |
from   a   standpoint   of   costumfry \
and  scenery,   the   presentation   is From  April   6th to   October
superior  to  any that has  come to
us   from   the   other   side    of   the
Rockies.    This  is   the   unanimous
judgment of  the critics  wherever
Dill has appeared this season.
The fun is maintained at a
screaming pitch throughout the
performance. The action of the
play is based upon the story of
Watts, a boom town in southern
California, founded by the missing
Isaac Watts. The founder has disappeared leaving a rich legacy of
uncollected rents which appears to
be the oasis in the otherwise dry
and dreary spot of Lonesome
Town. The moment it becomes
known that suqh a legacy exists,
each character in the play, practically, lays claim to it.
In order that the claim of Bakers-
field Bill, which is Dill's character,
and that of his fellow-tramp associate, Chico Charley, may have
some appearance of genuiness, it is
agreed to the digust of Charley that
Bakersfield Bill is to masquerade
as his son. Just when the last
obstacle has been removed, a
fascinating, though designing .widow, Mrs. Marvelous Wopder,
appears upon the scene claipiing
proprietary ownership of Lonesome Town, as the widdw of the
late Isaac Watts.

An apple with a garter snake
imbeded in it is a'curbsity reported
from Colborrie, Ont., where it was
found in a barrel of Ben Davis
which was being repacked at a
Colborne fruithoiise. The snake
was over half an inch in diameter
and about eighteen inches in length
The supposition is that it made its
way into the barrel while it was
in the orchard, and not finding a
way of exit! decided to seek
winter quarters by imbeding itself
in the finest spesimeh of Ben Davis
it could select. It is stated- that the
apple, which was a big one, was
perfectly.sound around the opening in which the serpent was imbeded. It is one of the most novel
occurrences that apple men have
yet met with.

a quarter miles. The record time
was made of 18 minutes and 29

The opinions of university authorities in America are being sought
by the backers of a new. British
scheme for revision of the Calendar.
The plan as outlined is as follows:
The first day of the year shall be a
bank holiday called "New Year's
Day, which shall not count as a day
of the week, of the month or of the
quarter. This leaves 364 days for
the rest of the year, a number that
divides exactly into quarters of
ninety-one days each, and into
fifty-two weeks of seven days each
Each quarter would be divided into two months of thirty days each
and one month of *hirty-one days.
This revision would make a calendar in which a given date would
always fall on the same day of the
week.

Over 7,000 coal miners in the
Crow's Nest Pass district ceased
work last Saturday. It is not really
a strike, at least none of the miners
will admit that a strike has been
called; with them it is merelj' a
"cessation of work," on the ground
that their agreements with the operators have expired, and have not
been renewed. A strike would
mean that the miners had bid defiance to the Lemieux Act as the
Industrial Disputes Investigation
Act is generally known. This act,
which applies to mines, requires
the;submi8sion of the subiect in
dispute to a board of conciliation
and finy^stigation,.before such a
drastic step as striking may be
taken. The dispute is over a demand for increase of wages and a
question of open or closed shop.
Stories which have been circulated at different times of terrible
diseases caught from the wearing
of false hair are being brought
pretty, close to home at the present
moment. Dr. J. E. Laberge of the
Qyebec Provincial Board of Health
is about to issue a statement to the
effect that there is danger that the
plague which ia causing such
frightful suffering and death in
China may. be brought into Canada
by false hair. The officers of the
health department are making inquiries at the local hair stores in
order to discover what proportion
of the switches sold by local dealers con.e from China, The men
who conduct the hair business state
that they import1 the! bulk of their
goods from Germany, but they add
that Chinese hair^is also on sale
here. It b claimed that most of
the corpses taken to , the morgues
in the plague-stricken districts of
China are niilrtus piata!_s, "and the
reason is that the' hair has been
taken by agents of the hair companies.

CITY COUNCIL.
Continued from page 1
finally passed." Aid. Cox supporting the resolution carried, the bylaw thus becoming law.
The affair of the pool room
having been thus disposed of, the
council resumed its ordinary business.
The mayor drew attention to
the apparent change in the assessment whereby improvements were
assessed at their full value instead
of half. Some people, he said,
seemed lo be under the impression
that their taxes would be raised in
proportion, and it might be <is well
to insert an explanatory notice in
the paper.    This was agreed to.
The mayor then vacated the
chuir, owing to an engagement,
and Aid. Leckie took charge of the
proceedings for the remainder of
tins evening.
Some amendments to the Building By-law were read over and laid
o.i the table.
Aid. D.tigleish reported that the
Board of Works had been looking
over Sutherland and Elliott avenues
l'liey had found that it would coat
q .i.te a targe sum of money to open
up cither of these streets, which
were in very bad shape. A new
btidge over the creek would be
necessary in each case. Elliott
avenue would be much cheaper,
in fact, not half so expensive as the
other. Sutherland avenue was full
of stumps. The most costly part
of fixing up the streets was not in
the new bridge, but the extensive
fills which would have to be made.
A!d. Leckie observed that it
m.ght% be well in passing plans oi
future sub-divisions to take into
consideration the difficulty of
making roads to thern.
Aid. Dalgleish said he though.
Sutherland avenue would be the
best street to open up, as it went
straight through to the city limits
and Pendozi street. It would,
however, cost considerable to do it.
Aid. Copeland agreed that the
opening of Sutherland avenue
would benefit more people. There
was another thing, too. A nev,
bridge on Elliott avenue would
come within 50 yards or so of the
existing Richter street bridge. It
seemed a pity to put in a new
bridge so near td the other.
It was finally arranged that the
whole council should pay a visit of
nspection before taking any further
s!eps.
Aid. Cox asked if any more had
been done with regard to opening
up the street through Mr. Wed dell's
property.
It was mentioned that nothing
could be done unless the people
benefitted gave a bond guaranteeing the expense. This, it was said,
they were quite willing to do.
Aid. Jones suggested that perhaps the best thing would be to
get some idea as to the cost.
Aid. Dalgleish said he would
like to see all grading on the streets
done before the irrigation water
came down, as it would be impossible in many places after. He
drew attention to the fact that it
was impossible to grade Harvey
avenue, as the telephone poles
'vere set too far out into the street.
He suggested that the council
should take a look over that street
the same day as they visited
Sutherland avenue.
A letter was read from the
secretary of the Fire Brigade, submitting the following code of
fire alarm' signals:
FIRE ALARM SIGNALS
Block No. I.—That portion bounded by
Abbott St., Bernard Ave., Ellis St., and
Mill Creek—Siren only.
Block No. 2.—That section north of Bier-
nard Ave., and west of Ellis St.—Siren and
one ordinary whistle.
Block No. 3.—That section east of Ellis
St..and north of Mill Creek.—Siren and
two ordinary whistles.
That section south of Mill Creek.—Siren
and three ordinary whistles.
One short blast when fire is over.
A letter was also read from the
same, enclosing cheque for insurance.
Aid. Leckie explained that the
occupations of four of the brigade
members had been found to be
more hazardous than the rest, and
a higher premium had been claimed
for them. The fire brigade had
sent their own cheque to cover this.
The meeting then adjourned
until Saturday next.

Good—Though   Live—Indian.
An interesting sidelight on an. Indian of Western Canada was discovered by a' party of Ontario men a short
time ago at a Hudson Bay post on
the Saskatchewan River.
Feeling hospitably inclined, the
members of the party brought up thp
stock of tobacco in the store and
sftarted distributing it among the
noble redmen. The latter, of course,
eagerly accepted the gifts of the
weed, and. as news of the good fortune spread among the' Indians in
the vicinity of the store, more and
more of them came trooping in.
Amqng the newer arrivals was an
old Indian of striking appearance,
and to him also the visitors offered
tobacco.. To their surprise he ma^e
a motion declining it, and. thinking
thaj perhaps the old man was doing
so through imagining that he would
need to pay for it, the Easterners asked an interpreter to explain, that the
tobacco  was being offered free.
"It's no use offering it to him," said
the interpreter with a laugh. "He
won't take it. He belongs to the
Plymouth   Brethren."
Telling of the incident, one of the
party said, "I wouldn't have been
more surprised if we bad been told
that the old Indian belonged to the
Sulvation Army."
Cool Reception.
This one hails from Ottawa and
goes back the law days to Hallowe'en, ln answer to the hopeful,
insistent calls of a gang of youngsters, an upstair window of the house
under attack was opened, and the
head of the head of the house was

of you?" asked the householder, and
the revellers eagerly informed him
that they numbered seven. The bend
was withdrawn, but soon reappeared,
