TORONTO 45 forthcoming. The matter that called for the greatest discussion was that of irri- gating the trees in the part of the city. The matter vas brought forward by Mr: Rylanda was viewed from the standpoint of the citizen, the council and the en- gineer. It was suggested that the city engineer be invited to the meet- ings of the Board to "hear and an- swer." 31r. Barford explained that when the city made a grant towards bringing the irrigation system to the city, MY. Gait said that would be spent in putting the system through the city. Is'ow it was a pity to cast it fisido. One day the citi-, zsns would value it. Some thought j the trees that have been moved 1 would dio nt any rate and the city co'jlcl fixed up whon the grading is completed. The following resolution was pass- ed: "In viV-w of the disorganized state of the irrigation system in the city, to the great detriment of tree cultivation, the council be requested to put the system in. order in the residential portion of the city as soon as possible, and further pro- vide water for the trees on tho square."

These citi- zens made the proposition thinking the society wished to economize. However they wished it understood that one band only should attend. A member, of the Society stated that some of the citizens say that if the Citizens Band is not at the Fair they will never donate another dol- lar to the Society.

Some'of the directors thought that a few of the citizens are trying to run the society in .place of the di- rectors. The question developed in- to a very perplexing one.

Jones and Miss Ge'rtig Pimm whose running away .to Great Falls to get married on Tuesday caused no little excitement. Jones has a charge of abduction laid against him. The Daily Tribune of Great Falls in writing affair has to say in part: Yesterday, morning after, breakfast, Jones started out to find the court house. He located the office of the Clerk of the District Court Proctor, and asked for a marriage license. He also gave the age of Miss Pimm as 19. After paying the necessary made ararngements with Rev. Knapp, of the Baptist church, to marry them in the parlors of -the Great Fals hotel at 2.30 in the afternoon. Upon returning to the hotel he found the officer of the law waiting for him, and his dreams of protective matrimonial bliss, were rudely shat- tered, when he was locked in the city jail. Miss Pimm, who is a quiet little girl, was seen yesterday in rjhe par- lors of the Great Falls hotel by a Tribune reporter, and expressed deep sorrow that their plans had been frustrated. As a matter of fact she did not know the seriousness of the charge against Jones, and expected him to return in- a short time. When asked if she ran away, she said no, but her story was slightly conflicting. She also said that the man who she came down here with was the man of her choice. It seems that- Jones had been working near the Pimm place in Lethbridge and it was here that he met the girl.

He was 79 years old and was only recently ekcU-d to the Senate again, over. Gov. Cummins. and according to Miss Pimm's- story, the runaway was planned. Her fa. tlier wanted Miss Pimm to marry another man, whom she protested she did not love, and never would marry. The trip was accordingly planned as a sort of a honeymoon, and they were then to return to Lethbridge., to break the news to the brido's parents. K.
