WESTERN DEFENGE  THE     HERALD'S    VIEWS    ON    THE  MOUNTED   POLICE   BROUGHT  BEFORE PARLIAMENT  And Approved   by  the   Minister  COST OF THE CONTINGENTS  Th- discussion'on tho resolution to  porrido money to pay Hie cost of the  C_B_diaii contingent- occupied nearly two days of the time of parlia-  jaent last week. Tho nuance minis-  t-c'6 resolutloa asks for two million  dollars, of which sjSoO.OOO' waa aitUior-  iTriL by the orders ir_ council, pro-  yfdljig for the despatch of the two  ������m.-___enis, and 51,150.000 is to pro-  vHVa for tho further outlay in., con-  mujdon wi-h Canadian troops iu the  Transvaal. Mr. Fielding said he  hoped Uiat tho resolution would bo  adapted unanimously.  Sir  Charles Tupper  fully   cudorsed  ail  that thc government proposed  to  do, and   was   rather   compliineatary  to   tho .premier.  He commended  the  wisdom  shown  by Sir   Wilfrid . iu   abandoning    tho  .viqw-s     which    he  took, so  strongly  ' i__jt October when the premier declared that Canadian troops should never  _a used  for any  other purpose   than  t_.e defence  of  Canada-    Sir  Charles  ' said  that the government should not  only send  the troops hut should pay  them.     Tho   premier   and   Mr.   Tarto  had  ar._iac_.-_ this   view   but  it   was  pleasant  to see  that    they    had   so  far come  round as  to a__re_ to pay  tha men while in Africa tho dif������er-  _nce between the imperial and Canadian scale.   The leader of lihe opposition ."would  have  gone  farther  and  relieved the home government of all  charges  in  connexion  with   the  Canadians.    But when ho thought of tho  position  taken  by  the    premier  four  months ago,' and    noticed what  had  been accomplished since, he was disposed to be  grateful for    what   had  bean  secured.  After Mr. Bourassa and Mr. Monet  had made speeches in favor of the  Boers,'Mr. Davin replied ably to -h.  ,axguments of both, gentlemen, but  excused their conduct on the ground  thai tbey were simply following the  course laid down by tha premier  Himself.  Sir Wilfrid had only once in his  career as prime minister expressed  a positive opinion. That was when  ha took strong and positive ground  against sending a contingent to  Africa. A. few days later he treated  his opinion, with the contempt it  deserved, but it is not surprising  that one of his moro independent followers should prefer the Laurier of  October 4"_ to the Laurier of October 14th.   ���������i___k__a^__tobe-rt_on--reminded .___y___P__ __  mier-that he h;_d pronounced Canada  _ nation and asked him why he did  sot propose that Canada should pay  her -own troops like a nation. He  admiU-d that a century ago some  nations had hired out their army for  other countries to pay, but he thought  mat Canadians were not Hessians.  . "When the day of reckoning comes,"  ha said, "and it will come soon if  mis goTernment is alive to see it,  ��������� Canada should ask for the vouchers  and .give Britain a check for every  dollar spent by the mother country  on the Canadian  troops."  It miiBt grievo Hewitt Bostock, M.  P., to loam that his own private  press cannot yelp with tho picture-quo vigor  ot tho  British Columbia  ���������journal -which, denounces llou. Jos.  Martin as a "purple nosed prairie  dog."  Frank Oliver, M.P., In tho Edmonton Bulletin, describing Hon. Goo. B.  Foster's Bpeech in tho South African  contingent debate said: .'Only in his  peroration did ho riso to tho height wor  thy of himself and of the occasolon  when ho described tho depth of interest of tho individual parts of thc  empire in the success and greatness  of -he empire as a whole. What ho  said on this point was right and was  well said, and deserved tho three  cheers with which it was greeted by  hja party friends in tho house. ilti  might just as well have boen cheered  by his opponents, as it contained no  reflection upon them and voiced their  senVtmentn aa well.'"   ,-  TAW  ON   S3I.AT12S  O me  U'l  At  week,   when  surrounded     by  MR. OAVIN'S POLICE   PENSION    BILL  Mr. _D-*.v*in _ bill to amend the law  relating to pensions in the North  West Mounted Police is nothing loss  than an attempt to fulfill the prom-  i<-_5 made to the members of the  force prior to the general elections  of 1836. At that time nothing was  said to he good 'enough for tho members of the force, and politicians of  ..both creeds who thought it well to  stand in with the police vied with  each other in their desire to better  the condition of the men.  Mr.  Davin,  it must in all   fairness  be.   admitted   has   been     faithful   to  his  ante election   promises.    He has  more  than  once  called  the attention  of the government to the question of  amending the police pension act, and  having failed  in getting   the government  to   do   anything,   has    himself  brought in  a  bill  dealing  with    the  matter.   Such   is   the  peculiar   parliamentary   methods   of   Canada   under  the   present     regime,   it   is   doubtful  whether   Mr.   Davin's  bill'   will   ever  become  law,  if  for  no  other  reason  than  that the  government could not  claim   the  credit   of   having   brought  about any benefits which may accrue  from  it.    The proposals* contained  in  tbe  bill are, however,  eminently fair  and  reasonable.    Mr.   Davin proposes  to  repeal  thc act of 1S98  which  was  p&saeii with a great flourish of trumpets but which on   examination  was  found   to  ho  practically_ useless,   and  to  fall   back  on  the old act of 1830,  which  he proposes to amend  in such  a way as to meet the reasonable requirements of the police force. Under  the new act, should the bill  become  law, section-  3  and  -1   of  the  act of  1SS9   are  repaaled   so  as   to   give  to  men   of   twenty     year.*;'    s=rv_ce  the  advantages   at   present   conferred   on  men   of   twenty-five    years'   service.

The   house   resumed   adjourned   debate  on   the   proponed   motion   of  Mr.  DiLvln:  That in the opinion of this house it'  i.i the duty of tho _juvernh_e.it to al  once niako provision for the defence  ot Manitoba and the North "West  Territories, and that more particularly provision should be made whereby  rlflo associations, duly formed, shall  be provided with military Instruction,  as well as with rifles and ammunition,  Mr. N. -\ Davin (Weal Asslnlbola):  Tho minister of militia (Mr. Borden)  knows that I made some suggestion to  him In regard lo the contingent-, and  lie know., well that I made thorn  with the solo doslre to further hU  work. This matter that I am bringing lK-ore tho house lu of too much  importance to admit of thinking of it  in connection with any other end or  aim than the Interests ot the North  West Territories. "We are at the present tltno in a position In the North  West Territories in which we need  defence from within, and defence, It  may be against the attacks from without. WO havo a large Indian population and a large population of half-  breeds, and I may say that owing to  the fact that the commission did not  complete its work, there Is a great  deal of discontent amongst them.  Now, the Mounted Police practically  no longer exists.  Tlio prime minister: Oh, no*. It  docs exist.  Mr. Davin: I wish to read an article  which appeared in The Calgary  Herald, which is published over 000  miles west of where I live. Calgary  Is practically the capital of Southern  Alberta, if not of all Alberta. This  is what thai paper says:  "The announcement that volunteers  for Strathcona's Horse will be accepted from the oflicers and men ot  the North West Mounted Police force  will be received with a good deal of  surprise and disgust by lhe people of  the Territories."  Last* night, when I "referred to this,  I guarded myself from endorsing that  view. I read this for the purpose of  showing that there is a sense of alarm  in the Territories. I do not see how  anything better could be done than  lo take officers from the Mounted  Police, because it would be much  easier lo get others to do the work of  these gentlemen in the Territories  than to gel men of the same ability  to do tho work that has to be done in  South Africa.     This article goes on:  "The police force, when it was 1,000  strong, was no stronger than waa  necessary, and since that time it has  been systematically reduced, while  the*   population    has    materially    in-  charactor  will  disappear.       What    I  suggest is, that as far west as Swift  Current corps of mounted rifles without   horses   should   be   formed.   Westt  of there each man might bo required  without   Inconvenience     to   have    his  own horse.     Thnt Is to say, let thorn  be drilled as mounted riflemen. Thoy  can easily  get  the loan of horses for  the time being.     Let them be taught  to ride, as well aa drill;   let  them,  at  ltcgina  or  uny  other  point,   pusb  an  examination     as     export     horsemen  at  the hands of the    riding    master;  and let them also pass an. examination in drill at the hands of the drill  sergeant.     In that way you will have  man fights on foot;  but you have got  because .after all,  the mounted riflemen flghtH on foot;  but you have got  rid of what would  be a bar to your  scheme,   by   requiring   each    man   tot  BUpply  his   horse  at  first.      Some   of  them  would  do  it.      For instance,  at  1-eglna,   at   Qu'Appelle   station,   and  at other points, some men would supply  Iheir horses;  but at least  75  per  cent of those who would desire to bo  drilled and arc good horsemen would  not have their horses, and would find  tho' necessity of providing a   horse a  bar.  I suggest,  therefore,  that action  be taken at once. "We have heard talk,  which I hope Is pure talk of a Fenian  raid on thu part of some loose tongu-  ed   Hcoundrelu   below   the   line.      The  Hitnw  thing  was    talked    of    in 1885,  when some men came across the nnu  and   caused   some   trouble.      Some  of  thesii men havo beon talking of visiting tho North West.     You have the  possibility of an  attempt being mado  to    disturb    the    public    from    that  quarter, or from some   particular reserve, or on behalf of those who disturbed it in 1885, bo that   I think the  government cannot take a course that  will  commend Itself more to patriotism   and  to  the  needs   of  the  North  West at present than for the minister  of militia to at once take steps to see  that   those  gentlemen,   who  deslro  lo  put themselves  in harness today and  strike a blow if necessary for Canada,  for   their homes  and  families, put  in  such a position that they would be fit  to   do  the  work    efficiently    and    be  given possession of the requisite arms.  I do not think it necessary for me to  say anything further, and I hope that  we may. hear something from my hon.  friend   the   minister   of   militia    that  will  bo satisfying  to  that portion of  the North West for whom I speak.  I'S BAY  COMPANY.  -~  l������-4������4^.������l������-ftJM*-i-M������i������ifr  .WC ORPOBAT ED 16 TO  Our.  The  Uevelstoke Herald  (SEMUWEEKLY)  creased.  -.  "The lforald has time after time  pointed out the gross injustice to the  settlers of this country of depleting  the strength of this body of men by  repeated drafts for the Yukon, and  il was thought that the limit had,been  reached when the few men who were  left  were ordered   to  South  Africa.  "Now. however. It seems that the  police are to be wiped out of existence altogelhor. It volunteers are  needed for Strathcona's Horse, every  member of the force who has not already been accepted will feel it his  duty to volunteer.' This is all right  and proper from the policeman's point  ot view, but how about the settlers of  the North West who are indebted to  the police for the existence of law and  order in this new country? Every  settlement in tbe Territories objects to  what is being done, and has said so  as plainly as it has been possible to  say it. The press of the Territories,  regardless ot politics, are a unit in  demanding that the force be restored  to something like its strength four  years ago.but not only is* no notice  taken of the just demands of tho  __ODle"���������-U--eve_��������� the���������few��������� rem ain'._.*���������-  men ar- now wanted elsewhere. The  people have sufficiently good memories to recall the special promises  that were made regarding the police  torce when the Liberal party were  seeking office, and they well know-  how to treat in the future thos_ politicians who have bo unblushlng-ly  violated   their  most  sacred  pledee.  I read thb. for the��������� Dirpcme of showing that a public journal in the town  ot Calgary, which is one of the moRt  considerable towns in the North Went  Territories, feels it necessary to sound  a' note of alarm, and what I would  suggest Is this, that means be at once  taken, first, to Instruct and as noon  as may be arm rifle corps nt different centre* In the North West Territories. There is a. rifle corps at  Moose Jaw.  whom  the departments of  militia, when It was pronlded over,  by Mr. Patterson, r think, supplied  with Snider rifles. The Snider rifl<;  is now an obsolete arm. They would  like to he supplied with Lee-Metford  rifles. Then there la a strong desire  on the pari of large numbers���������I have  the names of some 40 gentlemen In  Swift Current���������who want to join a  rifle- corps. T have also communications from gentlemen at Medicine  liar, to the same effect; and r have  received a letter from Edmonton saying that there nrc gentlemen there-  who desire to form a rifle corps. Here  is this desire on the part of the peoplf  of the North West in various centres  lo fil thfrnsolves without pay, without'  any expense, to do th(> work required.  I have had a few words with the  minister of militia, from which I infer that he looks sympathetically on  the cnursf tha.l should br. taken.  When General Hutton was out wpsI,  I met him. I at tended his meetings,  and hcaicl hia scheme explained; and  any little* Inflwiic-f I had T r.-lvc in  support of his scheme. Since General  Till I ton, however, has com" east, ,-ind  other events have occurred, and f have  been ablo to meet the people, I havo  found thai even It lhe same circumstance- existed today that existed  when General Hutton was th**re. his  scheme of mounted rifles, enfh man  having a horse ot his own, is not  re.islbl- ia n.ll parts of Manitoba and  the North West Territories; ami the  suggestion r have to make to the government is this. Part of il sounds  at first like .'t bull; but after It is  looked  into more closely,  it������ bull-like  Dr. Borden's Reply.  Dr.  Borden  in   reply  to  Mr.   Davin  said  that- a large  number    of    police  had been  withdrawn  to go  to 'South  Africa and he might now assure the  house and the public   that it .'was the  intention   of   tho   government   to   till  up promptly the  ranks of that force.  Everyone would  agree that'no better  men   could  have  been   sent  to  South  Africa to assist Britain.     The squadrons had gone as a result of the ac-,  Hon of the government and in .addition  Lord Strathcona was  now  equipping and sending out at his own expense three other squadrons, composed of policemen and others who were  specially qualified for such work. The  ranks would  be  filled  up  to. what it  was before  the  draft was made upon  it.      In regard to the question of the  defence of the North West Territories,  Manitoba   and   British    Columbia,-   it  was   before   the   government  for   the  past 18 months.     The question was a  difficult   and   expensive   one,   but   It  should be grappled with.     Dr. Borden  was also ot tlie opinion that rifle associations should be encamped    in the  -western  country  and  the  department  would  do all    it could    by supplying  ammunition, rifles.and necessary    in-  tructions.     The soldiers of the future  in   a  country   like    this    should    be  mounted   rifles.       The     war    brought  this out.     It was his intention to inaugurate squads of mounted rifles in  Manitoba,  the North West Territories  and  British   Columbia.      A  beginning  would be  made this  year in the way  of   organizing   special    corps    in     tho  North  West of mounted   rifles.     The  work    ot   organization  could    go    on  even if all the men had not horses..

General    Kelly-  Kenny, who was in pursuit of General  "Cronje caught his rear guard at Klip  Drift and  followed    the   burghers to  the Boer laager at Koodersrand.. The  "'. action began at daybreak. The mounted Infantry drove the Boer' rear guard  up  the river towards the  maln^body.'  while  another  body   of   the  mounted  infantry     manoeuvred   on . the    right  front  and  flank of  the  Boers.

Kenny having  seized    the two drifts  'found the Boers strongly enclosed and  ordered an-'attack with the   Highland  brigade   on   the   left,     and     General  Knox's   brigade   on   -the   centre    and  right,   while   General   Smith .Dorrien's  brigade  crossed    the  river  . and    advanced along the north bank;1 On both  the north and south banks,the ground  is level. The advance across thi3 was  deadly and    the British    losses    were  heavy.      The   battle     was   an    exact  repetition  of tho Modder river.      Tlie  ,  soldiers  were  under  fire all  day long  and   all  the  fighting had   no definite  result,   as  the  Boer  laager   was   well  harrionded    and  they remained  there.

The Boer commandant  occupies an entrenched position in the  bed ot the Modder river at Paardeberg Drift, "which is described as a  veritable death .trap here. The Boors  were surrounded . by the British on  Sunday, the Highland brigade being  ori the'south bank' of the -river \ and  the brigade' of the Sixth division on.  the north bank. The British endeavored, to envelope the Boers, but a'  stubborn resistance was offered and  they were unable to make headway  against the hail of bullets the Boers  poured against them, while the burghers on the other hand could not  leave thei sheltering banks of th������  river, which * formed their natural  breastworks without exposing themselves to tho shells of the -British  artillery. The Highland Brigade Buffered heavily," and as at Magersfontein,* the men. were obliged to lie: prone  owing to the terrible Boer rifle.lire.  The- Canadians formed part of, the  Iforce which, under Colonel Smlth-  Dorrlen, crossed the river at the drif..  in a. vain effort to reach the enemy s  laager. The little body of trooPS  fought gallantly."but were eventually  compelled to fall back with severe  loss, owing' to the terrible,, effects of  the Boer artillery fire.  .OhleveleT, Feb. 21.���������The steady  progress "ot" the ' relieving column is  uninterrupted. - The Boers on Tuesday Vere forced from their last position south of the Tugela, resulting  in the evacuation of Colenso, which  _was_DTpmp_U3>V=occupledlby the' Dublin Fasiilers and Thornycr6ft's-*Horser  A"- Transvaal 'flag "was. .captured -'and  also a" handkerchief, inscribed with  General .

He adds: "The splendid spirit shown  in ��������� Canada, which has Just * received  the first news of the losses incurred  In the service ot tho empire, should  serve to impel us to'greater effort."

Reports ������������������. current ���������' for.. several  days that Cronje'B force had been  surrounded wore confirmed yesterday  by despatches from Capetown.and  Modder River, and by Lord Roberts  himself. An official message from  him, dated "Wednesday stated that he  was satisfied, from the reconnalsance  that the assault upon Cronje's position would be costly, and consequently decided to bombard It, and  also to turn his: attention to the reinforcements which were arriving for  the enemy. The result of the latter  manoeuvres were- satisfactory, .:'��������� since  the enemy ,was driven o_ in all .directions, with heavy Iosb, 50 prisoners being taken.  There is no fresh information for  the public tonight, except a report  from Lord Roberts that food; forage  and coal were going rapidly to Kimberley, and the mines which were  closed will soon ��������� be in operation and  that the population in the adjacent  districts were settling down.  ���������. There was no news from General  Buller yesterday, but the silence Is  attributed to delay in completing the  British line of supplies for Ladysmith. The relief of the garrison is  confidently expected today, if it has  not already been relieved by General  Warren's brigade. While the Boer  forces are still on the right to fight  a rear guard action and obstruct the  passage of Buller's column, it was  hardly creditable that serious resistance would be offered his advance.  Lord Roberts has virtually deprived  the Dutch there of the objective  points eaBt and w<_6t, and compelled  'them to mass their forces in the  Free State to assist Cronje and for  the defence of Bloemfontein and Pretoria.  .���������__"���������"__ total casualties of the War on  the British side are officially reported   as  10,284.  of  C.  company,  late Royal Canadian  InpRIVAT_l A.

Croyden, was _ummon.il  by Mr. Thomas Eyre Clatworthy, a  civil engineer, tor stealing jewellery  valued at about ������100.  Complainant said that in October  1897 he left his wife and three children, who.:;..were staying at 46, Upper  Bedford: place, and went to* Klondike.  In lhe house he left ������50 in cash and  the Jewelery mentioned, and he ; also  transferred ������450 which he had in - the  bank to tits wife's name. When he  returned in April last he found his  house��������� ' a boarding:, establishment���������in  charge of a manageress, and his wife  had  disappeared.  In December last he. heard she: wan  dead, and he caused ���������; an inquest to be  held, at which the defendant gave  evidence that in October 1893 he went  to complainant's residence and found  Mrs. Clatworthy penniless. He took  her.������ to . Liverpool, where they lived,  together, and: on December 19 she  died, and he registered her death in  the name: of Bertha" Caroline Davis,  the same name appearing on the  coffin plate.  Mr. Daniel Morgan, a pensioned  police, inspector, now in. business for  himself, said that he had ascertained  that the parents of -tho dead woman  had all the jewellery except two diamond ��������� rings, which" were in the -possession   of the  defendant's  solicitor.

It is not  likely, however, that, they are fully  cognizant of the fact that this province  with its comparatively sparse population, figures third on the list of contributors to Ibis department.. It is a  long way behind Ontario and Quebec,  hut still it is easily third. Ontario  contributes a little over ten millions,  Quebec, rat bet- less than nine and a  half, and then, cotnes B. _.'.' with  $2,113,0-7 and Manitoba some way  behind with $1,240,0-3.. Tho Inland  revenue returns show the same story.  Quebec is a little over four millions.  Ontario slightly under. Then comes  our own province with $513,503 and  M .uitolm with a little over half a  milion.  .  SEE THE-  But when we come to expenditure,  there is a very different tale to unfold.  The united contribution of the provinces of Nova Scotia and New Brunswick, to .the Customs and Inland  Revenue amounts to $2,769,698. British  Columbia furnishes to both departments, $2,628,490. But the Public  Works..department,, the big spending  department, put up last year for  public buildings, bridges, harbor and  river improvements, etc., in the two  maritime provinces nearly $308,000.  while British Columbia was stood off  with $138,500, or a good deal less than  half what her more favored sisters  by the melancholy Atlantic received.  Kellie's great coalition with Joe  Martin, which was to force the opposition to take their, .redistribution  medicine, collapsed on Friday with a  dull, sickening thud. It almost- looks  as if tho wily Joe had got the (U-eat  Kellie into a little trap.  "as LEADING STORE"  Red Cross  When you have to purcbaso drugs or got a  proscription tilled. See that.tho Red Cross Is  on thc package, It Is a guarantee that the  drugs u������ed aro pure and primo. For not only  Is It Important to have pure drugs, but also  prime drugs. Unfortunately there are many  Inducements ottered to manufacturers to use  drugs, which, although pure, do not serve the  purpose of doing any better than those which  are actually adulterated. These are drugs  which havo boon collected out of season, or  have been badly cured.  Wo use our experience (of nearly 20 yean) In  examining the drugs we use, and you can  dopend upon everything being in the primest  condition.  G.F.

Mr.  Drew has a brother, who was in the  besieged town of Kimberley and  whom he has heard was shot by the  Boers, but whether fatally or not, he  has not been able to ascertain.  Rev.

The pastor and  officials of the church cor cliOly invite  the attendance of the public and the  cooperation of christian people in the  effort to make .thete services a great  success.  The members of the Presbyterian  chinch congregation met yesterday  Hfternoon at Mrs. Clark's residence on  Second street and presented Dr. and  Mrs. McKechnie with a handsome  ���������diver tea service as a parting present.  ;on their leaving for the coast. They  have both ever since coming here.been  active workers of the church and their  loss will be keenly felt. Mrs. McKechnie left on yesterday's Nn. 1 and  the ', doctor intends to follow her  shortly.  The :Herax._ regrets to note the  approaching departure of Dr. Mc-  Km hnie for the coast. As a physician,  citizen and man the doctor is, and has  been ever since his arrival here, held  in the hiithe-st esteem in RevelstoUe.  A man of progressive ideas, he has  actively helped the advancement of  this place as a prominent member of  the -bonrd of trade and as a city  councillor, twice elected. His departure will leave a gap hard to be  filled. The Herald wishes him and  Mrs. McKechnie every kind of happi-  -les. and good':.fortune in their new  sphere of life-work at Vancouver.  Kellie's conscience is getting touchy.  The other night, in speaking on the  proposed redistribution bill, Mr.  Turner said that it "was -meant to  create little pocket borough's."' Kellie  immediately aroso and said '.that "the  opposition leader seemed to think a  pocket borough had been created for  him" (Kellie.) Mr. Turner had not  mentioned Kellie's name, had made no  reference to the Revelstoke riding or  even the VVest Kootenay district.  Why should Kellie' think - the cap  fitted himself and clap it firmly on?  I wonder why, I wonder why!  the original motion of Aid. Kilpatrick  carried by the same figures.  Aid. Abrahamson was informed that  there had been no further correspond  ence over the railway crossing matter.  Aid. Kilpatrick was informed that  there was $50 in the city treasury.  The city solicitor stated that the  amendment to the Railway Assess.  ment Act, which would give the city  poxVer to assess their townsite was in  the hands . of the attorney-general.  Even if it didnot -go through, the provincial government intended to assess  the.C.P. R. townsite here at the same  figures as the city. The council then  adjourned.

The resolution of the council,  which was quite unanimous, could  only be rescinded, as it waa passed  in open council. The Mayor has no  power to interfere with such a resolu-  "tiO-Texc-epfiitthe council-board.-���������And  in the Herald's opinion the resolution  still stands in spite of the proceedings  tuket. at lost Friday', meeting and  should go foward.

The Public Works committee recommended an appropriation of SHO to  improve the doorway of No. 1 fire hall.  ���������Approved.  The third reading of the bylaw to  repeal the Insurance Companies'license  tax was again postponed.  Aid. McKechnie inquired why the  resolution of the Board of Trade on the  canyon wagon road had not been  forwarded to Victoria as ordered.. A  long discussion followed his question  in which the doctor and. Aid. Newman,  whosupported him, had a long way  the best of the argument. Aid. Peterson favored the council with several  fifteen minute addresses on various  subjects which had transpired during  his residence, hen* since 188-1, none of  which seemed to have any perceptible  rel-ition to chat point at issue. Aid.  Kilpatrick's contention was that the  mayor had vetoed the resolution, a  view of the case which his worship  di-tinetly declined to endorse. Finally  a motion whs made by Aid. Abraham-  son, seconded by Aid. Peterson,  rescinding the resolution altogether.  Aid. Kilpatrick asked that this motion  he ivithcliitwn'ii- it would prevent the  council taking up the matter again at  some future''date this ye.ar, and he  proposed, seconded by Aid. Patrick,  that the matter be laid over for two  weeks. Aid, McKechnie moved in  amendment, seconded by Aid. Newman, that the resolution be reii.dorsed  and sent forward. The amend men t  was defeated by a vote of & to 2 and  Otta- b, r.cc*-ber T6th, 1������S9  - PEAR SIR: "in ay p-a-tic.
