City Council
A regular meeting of the City
Council was held in the city office
Monday, Dec. 1st, Mayor Gulley
presiding and present Aldermen
Taylor, Kerr, Morrison, King
and Mowat.
The correspondence between
the City Clerk and J, W. Williams
of the Jubilee Mining Co. regarding the proposed site for a mill
was approved as satisfactory.
A deputation from the skating
and curling clubs waited on the
council to make terms for running the rink during the coming
winter. The matter of a supply of
water was adjusted when one of
the interested parties volunteered
the installation of a small pumping plant on Boundary creek if
the_city supply was not to be
available. "After long discussion
the lighting of the rinks was
amicably settled with a guarantee
of more economical consumption
thau in previous .years, the city
clerk afterwards receiving instructions to see that the agreement was lived up to. The basis
of rental of the rink is the same
as last year.
. The financing of the electric
light system received considerable
attention. The efforts of the
Council will be "-continued to be
directed towards lessening the
amount of current illegally used
by some.consumers on flat rate.
Several changes in the meter
systemvwefe ordered to be carried
out and it is hoped that during
the coming year meters will be
installed on every service. . The
"application ,of the Dominion
Public Works Dept. for free
lights in the. clock tower was deferred for future consideration.
All negotiations concerning the
electric light business are under
the direction of the city trustee.
Owing to numerous complaints
of horses and cattle roaming
around the streets for the last
two weeks it was decided that
mpre severe measures be taken
with owners who are the most
persistent ' offenders and due
notice will ��� be forthcoming to
them" from the City Clerk.
An inspection of water faucets
and valves throughout the city
proved to be very satisfactory
only a few cases of leakages
being found and these have been

Saskatchewan Coal
Vast Lignite Deposits An Asset Of
Immense Potential Value
Tho production of lignite coal in the
Estevan area this year is expected to
reach 750,000 tons, as compared with
500,000 last year, according lo the
member for Estevan. That. is an increase of iifly per ceni. The operators are lo be congratulated ou ibis
excellent showing; but even at ihat
thcy have .scarcely .scratched'the surface of thc 50,000,000,000 tons of lignite thiit are supposed lo lie under the
soil of tlie Sourls district. The membei- ior Kstc-vaii i.s glad to see that
lignite coal produced in Saskatchewan
i.s being used in increasing amounts in
public buildings in this province. So
must everyone else in the province be.
Saskatchewan has in its vast lignite
deposits an asset of immense potential
value to if; but like other sub-surface
wealth this coal must be brought io
the surface and consumed before the

on the amount that can be sold.     As
est care, however, must be employed
in handling explosives, as ihey aro all
more or less dangerous and cannot be
treated lightly.
The employment ot" explosives in
laud clearing i-3 probably the most
widely known application in Canada.
The great saving of lime and labor by
using explosives in stumping and
blasting stones is an incentive to their
use. There ls no reason why they
should not be of assistance to the farmer, but unfortunately farmers, nnd,
iu fact, almost everyone except those
who make a business of it, have rarely
much experience in shot-firing, It will
be realized that they may expose
themselves to very real danger by
failing to take every precaution.
Most accidents with explosives can
bo traced to explosives used by consumers in small quantities.-    All users
should remember that explosives arc
made to explode under certain conditions, therefore, care should be taken
that those conditions  are allowed to
exist  only  when  the   explosive  is  in
position to do the work for which it is
intended and that all persons aro at a

Millions Lost On Gold Coins
Money is: Worn Away by Handling
Says Experts
What becomes of gold? It has
many channels of disappearance, according to experts. Figures show
that more than half of the annual output is employed iu lhe fine arts and
jewelry trade. Thousands of pounds
also are used by dentists, .one estimate being thai; over a ton i.s needed
every year for the filling of teeth.
Then money i.s worn away in handling, this loss being placed af $1,250,-
000 annually. Bank of England sovereigns are ofien tested and found to
havc lost much of the original weight.
Of the immense quantities of the precious metal that have been buried
away in tho earth, It is believed comparatively little has ever boon recovered.���Popular Mechanics.

Aristocrats Have to Do All the
Menial Labor
Soviet ltussia makes no secret of
the fact that the lied Army is a
"class" army. That is, it consists entirely of men from the ranks of the
proletariat/ Members of the so-called "bourgebise" and of the old aristocracy are excluded as oilicers or soldiers from the army. Trotsky, tbe
red war minister, says such persons
must be regarded as hostile to the proletarian dictatorship, and cannot be
trusted with arms.
The services of such men. however,
are not permitted to go wholly unused.
It has been decreed that they shall
serve in what tlie Bolsheviks term
"auxiliary labor groups" iii ihe army.
This means they must serve the real
IteA Army soldiers. They Jrcep ihe
barracks clean, attend the horses, repair roads, supervise army mosses and
do other menial. tasks which are considered beneath tlio. "dignity" oi a real
ISelshevik soldier.
The "labor ' groups" . now include
many former princes, counts, generals,
colonels, nobles and others of ilie old
imperial regime.

- London.���The discovery-of-a network of plots throughout Egypt, declared to menace the lives'"of 'British
officials'-in that country and in the
Sudan, from the governor-general
down.to civil clerks, has caused the
British authorities to issoue orders for
the arrest and imprisonment of all
prominent anti-British plotters.
Further arrests, possibly on a large
scale, In Cairo and Alexandria, are expected to follow quickly the arrests
announced recently, it is intimated iu
ollloial quarters here.
Great Britain, it is stated, intends
.to safeguard the lives of its subjects,
I and it is the belief of the men on the.
ground that the best method is lo arrest the plot leaders, uo matter what
rank or position they may occupy in
their country. Field Marshal Vis'
count Allenby, British high commissioner in Egypt, has expressed lhe
hope and opinion that the new Egyp-
tion cabinet will co-operate in breaking up' the plots, in addition to accept-'
tbo-: British demand .that political
meetftigs be stopped.
Great Britain is placing much emphasis on this last demand, it being
explained that the murder of the Sirdar and the present crisis were, in ihe
British view, the result of the Egyp-
tlon     Government's     allowing    open
meetings, in wliich  the  discontented
must assert our own right to deal with j0,(,nlunts wer0 ab)e t0 work on putilIo
what.ia essentially our own affair, in j r���e���ags' am] to further such plots as
our own. way.     This Is not a dispute j lhat for lbe murdci. o�� lho slnlar>

Liquor Shipped
from Bridesville
A new way of bringing contra-
brand booze into the United State*
was discovered at En tint when G. F.
Worby, a wood and coal deaW,
went down to the railroad Hiding
to unload the last of a carload of
wood which he had bronght from
a man who gave the name of J. T.
He,had unloaded a part of the
carload and when he went back
for the remainder, he found no
less than 65 empty whiskey cases
scattered around both inside and
outside the car and very little
wood left. The half of the car
which he supposed was occupied
with wood was evidently taken up
by the 65 cases of Scotch.    7
The car was loaded at Bridesville," just across the line in British
Columbia on the Molson branch of
the Great Northern and was billed
originally to Tonasket, being eon-
signed-to Entiat. Just how the
booze was loaded in the car iu
Bridesville is unknown or how the
owners got it off, but it is certain
that they got away with it and
will undoubtedly be able to supply
the holiday trade in this part
of the state.���Wenatchee Daily
