Elton put up a strone plea that the meetings be carried'on ac- cording to parliamentary procedure. He thought fl lot of business could be done in forty minutes and-.thatr men had more of the spirit at noon. "Let us emulate the successes and avoid the of other; cities'' was his closing remark. H. Boyd advised holdinsr meet- ines in'the morninft'. This adyace was iriven after observinir the mannei 'in which the d iscussion was carried on. After more discussion: as to thenurn ber; of meetincrs. lencth, time and''at which, the members would the members would have luncheon, the the following report to the Board: To the Members of the Lethbridee Board Trade: Last -ear in nay Presidential ad- dress I referrjed to the difficulty we bad experienced in getting a quorum at the monthlv meetings of the Board and .surest ng that it might :be ad- visable to adopt the system in VOKUC in some other cities, of increasing the number of the executive council, rec- ognizing the fact that' they had to transact most of the business of the Board, and reducine the general meet-, incs from monthly to quarterly ones. This plan was adopted and despite the criticism it has received in some Quarters, it has, 1 proved to be. success. So far. as meetings of the full Board are concerned, we have had no twtter success this year than m Although members were not expected to attend as often as they were expected to do before, we could-not get a quorum ior our quarterly meetings, which has been a great disappointment' to- the Executive. Nevertheless, the increase in the number of :the Executive Coun- cil has certainly strengthened that body and -enabled it to do better work. But the work of the board has not entirely confined to the Ex- ecutive. Under the system now in if the latter only do1 their duty the work is distributed over a large number of members as we have a num ber of- committees or sections to whom are distributed the different matters that come before the -Board, the chairman of these committees be- ing a member of the Executive; but the- balance of the committee being mostly composed, of not members of the council. -In oroper working out of this plan, the work is well distributed and the: in- terest of a large number of people en- listed. While some of these commit- tees nave worked-well during the Past ,vearT, others that.ihave not but the. re- REUEVES MR FOWLER OF SOME OF HIS DUTIES City Council To Advertise For a Jack Of All Trades-Police Not To Tack Up Placards The Council met in the Board, of I prosecution of W. Pulley, aaid, Trade offices last night, and there were present Acting Mayor Bowman, Secretary-Treasurer Eobinson, City Engineer Arnold, and Aldermen Hatch, Hutton and King. The min- utes of the last meeting were read and adopted, and sundry communications were then brought-before the Council. H. L. Patmore, of Brandon, wrote to the Council, saying that he had tree seedlings and grass seed for sale. Next was an application-from J. J. Jackson, who desired the position as caretaker of the new fire hall when the building is completed. Per A. .E. Ives the General Acci- dent policy for the fire brigade, insurance asked for their annual fee of This was voted to be paid, while the others were filed, A.letter received from the market, master, F. G. Waddington, was placed on the table until the return of Mayor Henderson. The Canadian Municipalities fee of was ordered to be paid. Aid. King then moved that the1 Council resolve itself into a commit- tee to discuss questions to be raised concerning a request from Captain Adams, of the Salvation Army, and an agreement between the city, and Messrs. McAdoo. The request of Captain Adams was to -the effect that the Council grant him the .sum of to be used in providing the Sal- vation Army Band with better equip- ment. Ca'lling upon the captain the .Council listened to a lengthy ad- dress, in which the work of the Army was placed before the interests of the city, and Capt. Adams- said that- even this trifling outlay which h e requested would really be an asset to the .city, as the Army band was the most permanent- band the city could have, and unlike any other the .instruments "pur- chased remained the-entire, property- of the local .corps, .and could nevei be taken away, v Kind Words for Army- Mr. Hatch was strongly' in favor, and was warmly supported by Aid. King, but Aid. Bowman and Hutton whilst full appreciating the splendid work of the -Salvation -Army, were afraid of a precedent, for they said if we give to one'we shall naturally be expected. to give; to all. Chief Gillespie said that the Salva- tion- all through his experi- ence, had been his best friends; that when he, did not .know what to do with' prisoners he felt in sending, them to the. care-of the Salvation Army people, as in the recent case where a young girl was taken entire charge of by them. Mr. Adams said, upon being asked by the "Council, that he. was quiterwill- ing to await the: Mayor's return, and only, asked that it-he. "consider his request for a grant in a just- manner. An acreement between the city and Messrs. McAdoo for the delivery of-water was then read, and the fol- lowing motion was put: by Hatch seconded rby Aid. D. King: the1 SSpceement with the .city and Mc- Adoo-re water delivery is liereby ap- THis agreement, for the .-.t had "been disniisised 'r.on "account of some legal technicality, the bj-lawi conflicting -with -the charter. The Chief of Polici? -asked that something definite be dojie.. C. B. Bowman produced the char. ter, and reading the. clause referring to the by-law pointed out what was needed, and so the following wae framed: "That the secretary-treasur- er get a book of by Jaws now in printed and attach thereto the civic seal which the Council shall hereafter consider enough, for the administering of the city's laws by the city This, was mov- ed by Aid. Hatch and seconded by Aid. -'King.. The much discussed -question of the police officers having, to tack up signs on doors and disinfect resi- dences, was disposed of as pending the sanction of the Councfl the Health Officer had appointed the present caretaker, of the Isolation Hospital to take charge of this. Mr. Dawson made application to the Council, mentioning a sum that to him would be satisfactory, and Aid. Hatch at once put this "That report of Health Officer be adopted re appointment of Daw- son to fumigate rooms places wherein infectious diseases had been for a consideration stated in the re- port." This was unanimously car- ried: The Isolation Hospital. The report from 'Dr. Campbell re- garding tiie frigidity of the Isolation lospital, and also a strong -letter rom J. B.-Kelsey, local: editor of the Labor Bulletin, then claimed the; attention of Council. Dr. .Campbell's report said he had sent a man over to see the furnace, who reported that furnace seemed all right, but that .it required con- stant attention, which, considering Jie number of patients now in the lospital, it was a physical impowi- >ility to give it. Mr. Kelsey told- of he grave need of attending to this matter at once, and the voice of the Council was with him; hi fact, all were sorry indeed that such a. state ;and time been so ,suljts -.on we have- more experience m.'the: working of- this- system, better _will be print- is rit: rial passed, through legal processes, The.
