CITY AND DISTRICT .Mortimer Priest, having disposed of his barber shop, has gone east to Ontario for Christmas. 11c will return to I>3th1)ri when other connections were made. There was some crossliring b 'tween Mr. King and the Kngineer, the subject matter of which was made clear to the Council by the engineer. H(; asked that the Council make a ruling as to what should be done when a private sewer connection was asked for before the main sewer was laid on the street. Private connections had been made all over the city and rebates could be asked for in each case. Tho motion "That the Council is uable to consider Mr. King's application for a rebate," was lost on the casting vole of the chairman. Aid. Cunningham thought Mr. King should get a rebate' of the difference between the actual cost und tlie estimate given. The engineer stated that he always gave the approximate cost and had stated that the cost of the connection in question would be in the neiphborhood of $100. A second motion having thi- same effect as the first curried. Mr. Arnold explained that the city required more sewor mains on the streets. He advised the Council to look into the matter of tho mains required at tho meetings held during the winter. In that way plans could he mai-tenw. Mr. Redmond asked for si'wer connection to his house and stated that he wa� given to understand a year ago that a main would be laid in front of his residence during the y Council will invite applications for private spur tracks from the city's spur west of Westminster Road. After April the C.P.B. will not allow a single car to be unloaded on this jiart of the line, as traffic has increased to such a large extent. .\ctinp on instructions from the Mayor the city engineer preseiit<'d a plan of a brick building, a weiph-man's ofliee. to be en-cted at the market in conni'ction with the new scales now beinp plac;'d there. The Ciiuncil thought other things were needed worse than a houBe for the scales, and will use a portion of the market building for that purpose. The arm of the scales will be placed inside, and Mr. Reid will be asked to placi' his men in the part of the buihlinp previously assigned to theiir. (� B. iJownian wrote to the Council ealliiip their ait-ention to a lor-nier eommuiiicatioik making a re-qui'st for siiine sixty odd dollars as forfeit and commission on lots for which he pot the transfers for the new stand pipe. He stated that he had not solicited the sale, but had been instructed by the city to |)ro-cure the lots. He acondiiigiy paid the forfeit money and got the transfer, and considered he was entitled to a remuneration. The Council authorized the secretary to inform Mr. Bowman that it can see no w;iy to alter its previous action, o'ld the request for remuneration for services rendered was turned down. The contract for pulling the casing out of the gas well will be executed by order of the Council. reached bcl'ore finally passing tho tiy-law; That tho present C.alt Hospital and tho now building to lio erected shall lio a city hospital and in no sense � privato hospital. That all city physicians shall have the privilege of admitting and attending patients and of making uso of all its facilities, including ambulance; an announcement to this eJTect to api)ear in every annual report or other circular issued bj' tho Board. That a register be kept in which applications tor betls shall bo fyled in order of receipt and tho physicians applying notified as soon as tho bed is available. Said application to lapse if tho bed is not used within twenty-four hours aftor notification unless bed is paid for from that time. This provision would regard a patient paying de-ductitm.s or other periodical fee to the hospital as having paid for his bed. That the city physicians bo asked by the council to nominate one of their number aS one of its representatives on the Board. That, in consideration of employees of the A. R. & 1. Co. having been granted the privilego of hospital on account of a monthly con-triliution to hospital fuiuls, a similar privilege should be granted to other groups of men similarly situated at a price to be agreed upon. Knov.-ing as we do the grout need for increased accommodatioa wo bog to a.ssuro you of our hcartj- sympathy with the proposed bylaw and make tho above suggestions, believing that their adoption at this stage will tend to ensure the cordial support of the public to the institution and help it to achieve its full ideal. Trusting that you will bu ablo to give this im])ortrtnt matter your immediate attention, wo aro. Respectfully yours, L. Geo. DoVober, W. S. Galbralth, I'. W. Tullor. C. C. Cragg. P, M, Campbell, A.
