At his request the by-law was read which says that a certain class of buildings, including Chinese laundries, and others where thfre may be danger of unsanitary conditions arising, shall within a cer- tain limit be vacated by Jan. 31, 1909. Mr. Whitney explained that this laundry was clean, and not in the Mah Tai had pur- chased the furniture for and se- cured'a two years' lease some months ago. Now it was a hardship for him to be compelled to move somewhere where then? would be the same dan- gi-r from unsanitation. Howard Case testified to the good behavior of the Chinamen, stating that they were better neighbors than the majority of white men. Mr. Whitney gave the Council a parting shot by giving as his opin- ion that the, by-law would go punk if brought before a Supreme Court. A Water Main. K. W. Harrison presented a peti- ti-m asking that, a water main be laid from the corner of Rachel and Wallwork to Barnes St., and along it in the. North Ward; and again complaining about the water delivery in that part of the city. Aid. Adams stated that it was the intention of the Council to make fur- ther extensions. Robert Nirnmons spoke briefly and to the point. He thought that since there is a population of over in the North Ward the people ought to have moans of communication with the city, ?c that they could walk over and see us occasionally. Then- should also be more street lights in that part of the city. Mr Nimmons stated that a ma- jority of the people of the North Ward would vote in favor of break- ing away from the city, and organ- izing a municipality of their own, and that tho feeling was by no means joke.
