Alderman Cranna, a member of the finance committee, in the  absence of Chairman A. McGoran, gave  notice of his intention to introduce at tbe  next regular meeting a bylaw to authorize a loan as desired by the School  Board.  Regarding water extensions, it was  reported that the water and light committee had considered the question of  extending city water facilities to block  K owned by the Bank of Montreal and  where the bank residence stands. They  found it would cost' some four o* five  hundred dollars to, extend the pipe line  to this property and as the revenue to  be expected would be so small as to be  out of all proportion to the expense that  would be incurred, it was resolved on  the motion of Aldermen Cranna and  Greig, that the clerk ascertain what  proposition Mr. Strickland would be inclined to make in the circumstancs.  The nine foot flag which caused a  flutter and breeze at the lastNsession,  owing to the price charged for it being  in excess of that tendered by Mr. G.B.  Armstrong, had slight mention. When  the account was again, submitted the  matter was rapidly dismissed, Aldermen Cranna and Greig moving, that'the  bill be paid to G.B. Armstrong in accordance with his tender. _.' r_<- _ ���  ' 'An application for an electric light  extension to "Hugh Osborne's 'property  across the 'track was > referred '"to the  water and light committee with power  to act, or% as r Alderman Greig. slated,  with power to " erect or reject."

Marcel  Andre, of Paris, at the Rex Theatre on  Tuesday evenIng.^.The2'hall was well  filled.  Having resided in London, Eng. for  eleven years, the lecturer spoke excellent English, related some entertaining stories of army life, and held the  close attention of his audience by his  delightful vivacity, so characteristic of  the French. '  Slides reproducing drawings of noted  engagements in which the Canadian  troops figured so bravely and successfully, as well as actual photographs of  troops in the firing line amid bursting  shells, were shown. Mons Andre described the scenes in France before and  dur ng the war and compelled a remarkable outburst of enthusiastic applanse  when he said that the British Empire  entered the war because^their p'edged  word to Belgium was as good as their  bond, and French people knew it. During the lecture patriotic songs were  contributed by Mrs. Tutill and Mrs,  Paton, the audience joining in the choruses, while Mrs. Nichols and Mrs. Langstaff, on piano and violin, respectively,  also rendered valuable service.  The lecture closed with the singing of  two verses of the National Anthem, including the new war lines commencing  " God save our splendid men; bring  them safe home again."  Mr. F.

While here Mr. Nation will tell  of the imm ense responsibilities  of the people of British Columbia  to their patriotic fund, how the  demands on its resources have in  creased with heavier enlistments,  and hopes to show_why_ every  British " Columbian should ir>  some way, large or small, be a  subscriber to the fund that cares  for dependants of our heroic  soldiers.  Mr. Ration is a "very 'attractive speaker with a flowing delivery and from the oratorical viewpoint abne should be heard by  all who can attend.  That the late Mrs. Clara Gravenor,  aged 22, came to her death by an explosion of powder was the verdict passed by the coroner's juiy which investigated the tragic occurrence at Cobble  Hill. Van<ouver Island. The inquest  was held on Monday, and the jury in  addition to the verdict passed a rider  commenting on the careless way of  thawing powder,' as described in the  evidence given.  '' Mr. Henry Castillon, of Meiritt,  brother of the deceased lady, who  formerly lived here, identified the remains and attended_ tne iuquiry The  funeral took place amid impressive  scenes, at St. Mary's Somenos, on  Tuesday afternoon of last week, the  Rev. F. G. Christmas conducting the  services.  Mr.' Gravenor, said that he had bean  at home all that day thawing out" powder.   He had done two boxes and had  150 sticks  around'the  kitchen  stove,  laid out on cordwood.   He had 15 sticks  primed and ready, for use and a box of  caps and fuse was in  the  room,  while  underneath the house there  were  four  boxes of dynamite. ^ He  and  his  wife  had bought the property on which they  lived some four months ago,   and  he  was clearing the land.

He hurried   back   home   and   .  was found   lying   on   the   ground    by  neighbors drawn to  the  scene  by the  noise of  the detonation.   Dr.   Dykes  and    Provincial   Constable  Keir were  speedily on the spot, and Mr. Gravenor  was taken to Duncan Hospital,  utterly  broken   down   with   grief.     The  only  theory as to how the accident occurred  is that Mrs. Gravenor may have been    >  putting more wood on the fire and had  used a fork they had for lifting the  rings    The fork may have slipped, and  thus the ring may have fallen on  the  powder.   Mr. Henry Costillou, of Merritt, brother of the unfortunate lady,  identified   the   remains.-Dr. H. F. D.  Stephens, k.N,, conducted the inquest.  Mrs. Gravenor was only 22 years "'of  age.

The  great majority of the electors felt a change of administration was  necessary and have voted the Liberals into office by a decisive  majority. While the soldier's vote abroad may to some extent  increase the number of Conservative members it cannot affect  the issue. All have to look forward to five years of Liberal administration. Now that Mr. Brewster, the Premier-elect is to  assume very high political responsibility the people will look to  him, and with absolute confidence in'his integrity, to extract the  whole truth of the plugging scandal and present the true facts to  them. They will look for proof in support of the charges ofl'cor-  ruption'levelled against the Bowser administration. They will  watch'for the abolition of patronage and for the appointment and  promotion of civil servants on ability irrespective of "pull" and  politics. The people will expect to see "public' developments in  the way of road construction and similar works carried on ina  manner which will ensure the adoption of policies for the public  welfare, where the welfare of the community as a whole and not  the welfare of those who have votes to cast will be kept foremost.  Mr. Brewster has smashed "machine policies" it is to be hoped  for all time, and for all parties. But the victory of Mr. Brewster and his assoeiates'cannot be taken to indicate that Mr. Macdonald has been cleared of the stigma hanging to him. Now that  Mr. Brewster will assume the power which a week or so ago was  held bv Mr. Bowser it is his clear duty in the interests of the  purity "of public life to insist that the whole plugging question be  thrashed out in the courts,  The land and timber policy of the'late Government came in for  trenchant criticism. Mr. Brewster claimed before the election  that the Government had squandered the resources of the Province and alienated them to speculators. It will now be "up tb"  Mr. Brewster to,show how, when and where, and to .replace his  , statements w with "figures and facts from Parliament Buildings  \'records. ..-   i.   -      >'$     -��� -r ���      .���     ' ���-    ^    ���*  The electorate apparently"accepted Liberal leaders' statements  that hitherto they had been unable to have time to make good  their.charges of^maladministration  aiid wrongdoing.    With five  years possible rule before them the Liberals will now have a free  -hand and plenty of time to produce their substantiations.  In his pre-election speeches Mr. Brewster told audiences all over  the Province Lhat-the credit of B. C. had been shattered in the  eyes of Eastern and Old Country capitalists^ Will Mr Brewster  stick to'this opinion when the Province requires loans and its cre-  dit'is^of paramount importance ?  Locally Joseph Walters def eated^Alex..Lucas wi th a. _ maj ority  which the soldiers', vote cannot ,vitally affect. "The majority of  the people of Yale supported Mr. Walters not through personal  love of the'eandidate but as a protest against the return of the  Bowser Government and in support of a change. /        '*    _,  In the heat of the election campaign^this paper opposed Joseph  Walters as aspirant for the representation of, Yale. Today he is  no longer an opponent but is instead member-elect. In congratulating him on his clean fight we "would express our hope that in  the interest of the province in general and Yale in particular, Mr.  Walters in his work as member will receive" the support of all  ,, shades of political opinion and business activity. As much will  be expected of him he can as justly expect the generous co-operation of those he will represent.  THE WORLD  '  The splendid work carried on *by the Vancouver World for the  affirmatives in theiProhibition campaign is deserving of the many  expressions of credit that journal is receiving. It required a bold  decision for a newspaper in the early stages or reorganization in  times none to prosperous to ignore the glitter and tingling of the  thousands of dollars it could have taken for anti-prohibition ad  vertising and to steadfastly refuse to accepf'such money, even  when by the ethics of newspaper management it might legitimately have done the opposite, and still pursued its editorial policy  in favor of prohibition. Since the World took its firm stand on  one of the'most vital questions of,the day its list of supporters  and subscribers must have gone through a refining process to the  ultimate advantage of the paper.  ALEX. LUCAS  <-lf, as looks probable, Mr. Alex. Lucas has to"give way to Mr  Walters as member for Yale, many people will feel the loss as a  personal one. It is generally acknowledged that Mr. Lucas1 has  done more for Yale than any of his predecessors and has always  had the best interests of the constituency at heart. If the vote  had been a personal one instead'of one on public issues there can  be no doubt that Mr. Lucas would have been returned by a handsome majority, Many Liberals and Conservatives, too, who desired to see a change of administration regretted to have to custa  vote against the local Conservative candidate.  ��� �� *  William Aitken, of the Merritt Mercantile Co., who has enlisted  for overseas service, has three specially dear lives to avenge, lives  ,Iost by hellish murder by the Kaiser's sea pirates. It was on May  7, 1915 that Mr. Aitken's revered father at the ripe old age of 68  was lost in the Lusitania crime, the same tragic end being destined for his brother Jarvie, aged 33, and the latter's two year old  boy, Jerry, aged 2.
