April 29.-Bow Island today Is without a village council. Mayor Jamleson, Councillors Dulmage. Agar and Stewart have resigned^eav-Ing thrne lone coundlmen Arrange ments have not yet been made for tho new elec tioiy Various reasons aro felven for the resignations, but It is believed that the troubltj over the position of secretary treasurer df the village will throw a light on the matter. .Mayor Jamieson, of course, has been in 111 health for some time and has been �.>rdered to the 1 oast by his physitdan His resignation was previously expected. Tho others came as somewhat of ii surprise. A couple of weeks ago the cotiuc il had an application from John Walker, a qualified returned soldier, and recommended by the secretary of the military hospitals commission, for the position of secretary-treasurer. As W A. Mateman held this position, the Job was not vacant. It waa the opin ion of some countillors however, that as Mr Balenian was not dependent upon this pu.sitlon for lii.s living and having a farm, they ought to give the returned man a chance. Others thought that there was no call to turn .Mr llatemau out. Councillor Blaine moved that Mr Bateman be given the opportunity of resigning, and that the usual W days notice be given him if the resignation was not forthcoming. This motion was carrietl. Mayor Jamieson, Councillors Oliver, Dul mage nnd Blaiire voting for, and Conn cillors Agar and Brattan against Couii. Stewart was absent. Last Friday evening Mr. Blaine again moved that In accordance with hia previous motion Mr. Bateiaan be given the 30 days notice. TbU motion was defeated, rounolllor Dulraage voting against ibis time, and Coun (illnr Stewart being present and also voting ugaiqat, mad* tbe vote 4 to :t against.
