WELCOMED TO HIS OLD HOME A Warm Greeting At Winnipeg To Lord Strathcona Winnipeg. Man. Aug. 25.-Thfl benign features oi Lord Strathcmii wtr radiant with Bmiles of gratitu'tu un') ddght livib^ii he stepped frora his special tnari at the C. P. K. ihy^t at. B:90 lafit night and viewM thir preparationk for the reception on the Btation platform in his honor. Wlion he paased through the depot .ind caught eight of the mighty crowd that filled the streets, the mounted t'p8 in scarlet tunics and white helmets, ttie glare of colored lights and the long line of torches blazing in order of parade, he stepped into the waiting carriage almost, bewildered by the enthusiastic welcome h^ wan receiving to his former home. Not in years, if ever 'before, has Winnipeg honored a visiting guest in the manner thiit characterised last night's outburst. Not -only were the streets in the vicinity of the depot choked with humanity, but Wie entire route of the march for almost two iniles from the station to goyernmcnt llQltse was congested and the street car traffic was held up f-jr sohk! time. The scene presented as the torch light procoK.iion, wended its. way through the crowded thoroughfares to the strains �f martial mu.sic wa-s me. of unusual brilliancy. One of thf most pleasimt duties, whidli Lord Strathcona will b' asked to perforpi, during; his present stay in Winnipepr, will be the unveiling of a/tablpt, being erected at Fort Gary Gateway by the Canadian Club, commemorating the fort^ kjf the fur trade which once stood in that vicinity. This unique and interesting caremony will take plac � jon Friday afternoon at 3.30. It will be draped in a flag of decided hi.s. torical interest and lone associated closely with Lord Strathoona's con-hection with the West and Fort Garry in the turbulent days of Ix)uis Reil's asoendamcy.

WhitR and eleven others, was dis-cuBsod. AU the momben^of the council were present to sit comfortably in their new easy nldermanic chairs. The Mayor alone was forced to use e hard Ktift-backcd chair tis his has not yet arriv�d. Aid. King spoke of a house between F. Hick and M. White's residence on Courtland-St. used as a laundry. HiR , had exaiiilnod the . place, and found there was no sewer there. Ths oo-cupunts said they were going to put in a cess pit. Both posiitlons arn contrary to the bylaw. He had been f the means of having the meeting called to discuss the question. Mayor Henderson said that' as yet .there was no launtU'y as the* onR against which there was a petltio* ha'd not started. It was time enough ' the waterworks committer. The Uuat Nuisance A. Tilley attended the council to see what would happen the petitioH the business men of the city were pre-.�icnt'ing^ cooocrning the watering of the streets to keep down the duat nuisance. The petition was not read but the mayor said that the counc I was; doing: the best it could under ths circumatallcieH. It was huixl to get a supply of water necessary and there wasn't sufficient for the work asked for. Next year with the new plant they would \m\e plenty of water to do it. Mr. Tilley remarked that the business men of the city perhaps had a larger idea of the Importance of the matter than bad tho members of the {council. But if the.y were "short of water and on that account unable to Water the streets,  that was anotlwr ' matter. AsKussor's Trouble ,\ssqssor W. I.. Ourrie sent a letter � to kick when it started. They would to the Council nskini? for an invosti-had contributed to thei; election fund j have to Uko out a �,nd before g�tlon into the reports that were be. of Alderman Labncliue-in Delorniier it would be granted it would be t a month to get a luun to do tho appointment of a building inspec-'tho Mr. Scott is doing for the tor wos Icit to the Works and .Prop- j city.

The total loss will about $40,000. j Portage la Prairie, Aug. 24.-Thel |Arena Skating rink hero, was destroy-! ed by fire this morning at an early thcur.' The blaze was discovered at 4.10 and at that time the roof was- cial licenses and it apeared from the evidence of Mr. i. F. Patterson, of the lumber company that there is a dread tliat future government of this particular province may be confi.s-1 citory. I "There will be every production inj this province for many'years- to! come,^' assured Mr. Patterson. The present capacity of the shingle mills was twice what the Canadian'market open to British Columbia would take | j^jand tho capacity of the lumber mills! j was at least one-third more than the | iiiarket. " j AN ACCIDENT and that would be a disaster to the city. He considered that the finance committee were making a mistake in letting him go. He believed that the I same plan as the city engineer's office where Mr. Fleetwood and Mr,, Scott wore under Mr. Arnold but i^ach had full charge of his own department should be adopted in the secrotnry-treasurer's office. Mr. Hains shouyi bo given full charge of his department and held responsible to Mr. Itobinson as the other two were responsible to Mr. Arnold. The Mayor heW that two men could not run tlie same office. The management of tJie city office was up to Mr, Hobinson and as Mayor ho Was going to see that lie ran it. "Hie city has an auditor to sec th�t ho Ims his department do its work and if ho does not do it, they w 11 havR to get one who will. He refused tH conskicr Aid. King's -idea of referring to the finance committee. -�Vld. King foretold a day of reckoning for the council at the next elections when there would be "a cleaning out of the little family party." The offices of the city were not run right and the aldermen as the repre-sentati\es of tho people should .see to it that they were. And so on. Aid. Bowman, who is chairman of tho finance committee objected toithis washing of dirty linen about officials in .the council meetings. There was hardly a meetiiig but what Aid. KinR ha-d some matter about some city env-ployeo to bring up.  The citj' had responsible heads foi- tho dilTerent der partmonts and it is their duty to look after their .stafTs. The council had to be Just to these heads of departments and they are not if employees can run to the aldermen with all their little com|>laints. The council has no right to consiidnr anything jJertaining to departments except what conies to them through the responsible heads of. these departments. 'Here Aid. King Jumped to his feet and ho lind Aid. Bowman both held the floor while tho niayor called for order. .Md. King wantetl Akl. Bowman to say in public, what he .had said in private conversation with him while Aid. Bowman held that council meeting was no pl,ace to discuss these things. He was not going to spend his time at council discussing petty troubles of city employees. The rest of the aldermen agreed with the idea and a motion to adjourn carried forthwith. OR. R. K.
